Love

Nikola, a photo by WolfgangDengler on Flickr. Love by― Bessie Anderson Stanley “To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded.” Love by― William W. Purkey “You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” Love by Bob Marley “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement.

Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs will start a restaurant in the same location where five other restaurants have gone out of business; those other guys may not have succeeded–but why not me? Entrepreneurs will start a software company with nothing but an idea; sure, the competition has deep pockets and a huge market share–but why not me? Entrepreneurs don’t assume those wildly successful people possess special talents or some gift from the gods. Entrepreneurs look at successful people and think, “That’s awesome. Why not me?” By asking that question, entrepreneurs embrace belief and ignore self-doubt. They put aside any feelings that they might not be smart enough, or experienced enough, or adaptable enough....

Reading

Leyéndote., a photo by Benya Acame on Flickr. “If you truly love a book, you should sleep with it, write in it, read aloud from it, and fill its pages with muffin crumbs.” ― Anne Fadiman “Reading changes your life. Reading unlocks worlds unknown or forgotten, taking travelers around the world and through time. Reading helps you escape the confines of school and pursue your own education. Through characters – the saints and the sinners, real or imagined – reading shows you how to be a better human being.” ― Donalyn Miller, “The person who deserves most pity is a lonesome one on a rainy day who doesn’t know how to read.” ― Benjamin Franklin Get yourself some...

art libraries

Some German cities have public “art libraries” where you pay up…, a photo by alexis_johnson_nz on Flickr. Not everything you see is real as they say. Keep in mind that often what you would pay for someone else is quite happy to rent. Rich Mastery is not just about becoming wealthy but also living the life you want to live, having the things you want and being happy because you are doing what you want to do and when. It’s as easy as...
