What you do by Ralph Marston, You cannot always control what you get. What you absolutely can control, though, is what you do.
The actions you take will indeed bring results. However, there can often be other factors that influence those results.
Focus your energy on pointing your actions consistently and persistently in the direction of your dreams. Those actions will, one way or another, move you in that direction.
What you can control is what you do, so make the very most of that opportunity. Although other factors may at times work against you, there is great benefit to having your own considerable strength working for you.
Fashion and evaluate your goals in terms of real, specific actions you can take. There is plenty that you can do, so don't let any adverse outside influences stop you from doing it. Life can sometimes be arbitrary and unfair, and yet your authentic purpose and intention give you the upper hand. Do your best no matter what, and your positive, living purpose will surely prevail.

Taking Responsibility

Taking Responsibility by Ralph Marston, It's not their fault. It's your responsibility.
If you're not moving forward, what's stopping you is you. That's very good news, because it means you are in control of your own destiny.
If you continue to blame and complain and procrastinate and make excuses, you'll continue to be disappointed with the way life unfolds. When you're ready to stop all that, and when you really do, and when you choose to be responsible for it all, you dramatically change your outlook for the better.
It is difficult and uncomfortable to take full responsibility for your life and your world. The only thing that's even more difficult is to not take that responsibility, and to live with the unending regret.
Yes, there are many things you cannot control, and most of the difficult challenges are not your fault. Even so, if you wish to create real fulfillment, the way to do so is by taking responsibility anyway.
This is your life, your opportunity and your universe of beautiful possibilities. Take responsibility for it all, no matter what, and make it into a magnificent and increasingly joyful experience.

Go and get it!

Will Smith - The Power of Positive Thinking

You Achieve by Ralph Marston, Everyday, you are achieving something. With every moment, every action, every word, gesture, thought and feeling, you exert influence on your world.
Everything you do is an achievement of some kind. The question is, where are those achievements taking you?
Are your constant achievements bringing you closer to the life you ultimately desire to live, or are they holding you back? Are your achievements satisfying and fulfilling, or are they just getting you through the day and passing the time? With your attitude, your focus and your actions, you can choose your achievements. And by choosing your achievements, you are choosing the kind of life you experience. Because you are so skilled at achievement, you have grand opportunity available to you right now. Let yourself dream, and know that your very own abilities can enable you to reach that dream if you choose. You are constantly achieving, so point those achievements in a joyous and meaningful direction. You achieve, so use those achievements to make your life the very best it can be.

Stop Stopping Yourself!

Sungha Jung. A very talented kid.

Stop Stopping Yourself by Ralph Marston, Stop stopping yourself. Stop holding yourself back. Yes, the world throws all sort of difficult challenges your way. And you can find a way to transcend every one of them.
Yet you must choose to do so. You must make the commitment, deep within yourself, to live with richness and purpose and fulfillment.
Many events, people and situations will challenge you and impede your progress. However, the only limitation that can stop you completely are the limitations you place on yourself.
See that the doubts and limiting beliefs are of no use to you. Choose to simply and effortlessly let them go, just like that.
Your dreams are calling to you right now, calling for you to being living them in this very moment. Stop holding yourself back, and let yourself be all you know you can be.

Story of my Investing Adventures - Brilliant Reader

Pinoy Self-help Investing No.13, Latest update ng aking first investment sa McKinley Hills, Stamford Residences. Pagkatapos ng mahigit tatlong taon na pagsisikap sa paghuhulog ng monthly amortization ay malapit ko na rin matanggap ang title ng aking unit. Ngayong taon ay naka-schedule na i-turn over ang unit sa akin at i-transfer ko na sa bank financing ang remaining balance nito. Kasunod na aking aasikasuhin ay ang pag-apply ng unit sa property management organizer na mag-aasikaso ng paghahanap ng tenant at mangangalaga para mapanatiling maayos ang unit. Marami nang improvement sa loob ng McKinley Hills katulad ng mga establishments na ngayon ay nasa operation na at marami na rin mga BPO (Business Process Office) ang nasa paligid ng Stamford Residences. Nangangahulugan lamang ito na maraming job opportunities para sa ating mga Filipino ang naghihintay at patuloy na umuunlad ang McKinley Hills bilang isa sa mga sentro ng ating kabuhayan.

Not too late

Daily Motivator.

Not too late by Ralph Marston, It's never too late to richly live the moment you're in. Don't let regrets about the past destroy the unique opportunity you have right now.
Do you feel frustrated by your lack of progress? Then tap into the energy of that frustration to bring yourself fully to life in this moment that you now have to work with.
Today, you are more experienced and knowledgeable than you've ever been. Today, you can be more motivated than ever before to reach in and connect with your own special goodness.
And today you can put all of what you have into making real and positive progress.
Today you can connect in a new and fulfilling way with what matters most.
You've already made an amazing journey to get to this moment. You've brought yourself here for a reason, so let yourself live that reason.
Make life the best it can be right now by doing something truly meaningful with it. Whatever you've come through, wherever you've been, it is never too late to feel the beautiful joy of being alive and making a difference.

Living inspiration

Daily Motivator.

Living inspiration by Ralph Marston, Certainly you can inspire others with your words. Yet you can inspire other people even more with the way you live.
By skillfully arguing and presenting your beliefs, you can convince others to consider adopting those beliefs. Yet you can express those beliefs even more convincingly by consistently applying them to your life.
With what you say, you can get some attention. With what you do, again and again, you can build real and lasting credibility.
If you wish to lift others up, the first step is to bring your own life to a higher level. Then you can bring along as many other people as you wish.
It's not selfish to follow your own authentic dreams and to create a life for yourself that's the best you can imagine. For in doing so, you also create outstanding opportunities along the way to be of real, meaningful service to others.
Your life has unique and immense value. Share that value far and wide by living your dreams and making your life a true inspiration.

Retire Early

Bill FitzPatrick - Founder of the "American Success Institute".

Action Principle No.56>> Retire Early, If you didn't have to worry about earning a living, you could concentrate on your personal potential and being of service to others.
You don't have to be a millionaire to retire early. In fact, if you had savings of half that amount, invested prudently, you could retire and earn an annual income that exceeds the annual income of 75% of the people in the United States. Over half of the people in the United States have less than $10,000 saved for retirement and live from paycheck to paycheck. They have no definitive financial plans. You are different. You now have a financial goal: to retire early.
Consider this: After 20 years of saving 20% of your income, you may create the choice of not having to work for a living.
Consider this: As an alternative to saving 20%, can you earn 20% more if you work 10 hours a day rather than 8, or 6 days a week rather than 5?

Create, Combat and Conquer

Anshul Samar - Create, Combat and Conquer.

Visualize it by Ralph Marston, You have the power to visualize. And what you intensely and persistenly visualize, you will create.
Before you can go where you want to go, you must know exactly where that is. Seeing the destination clearly and in rich detail puts you well on the way there.
See it in your mind, and you'll move naturally, vigorously and effectively toward it in your life. Fill your awareness with the substance of your dreams, and those dreams begin their transformation into reality.
Visualization not only enables you to clearly see what you wish to do. It also gets you to profoundly feel the reason why. For you can do more than imagine how you wish to feel. You can go ahead and feel now how it feel to reach your dream. Know what you want, and you're on your way there. Visualize how it will be, feel how it will feel, and make yourself unstoppable.

Invest In Your Future

Bill FitzPatrick - Founder of the "American Success Institute".

Action Principle No.55>> Invest In Your Future, Today, investors sacrifice and spenders enjoy. Tomorrow, investors enjoy and spenders keep working. If you buy a house today, you may have to work two jobs to make the mortgage payments now but you may own the house without debt in twenty years. If you give up TV tonight, you can take an evening course and in six years earn a college degree. If you start training today, you may be sore tomorrow and a black belt in four years. Invest in yourself.
Most wealthy people save between 15% and 20% of their income. Invest in fields in which you have a specialized knowledge. If you sell car, invest in the auto industry. If you are a real estate broker, buy income properties. Be sure to diversify your holdings by investing in a retirement plan and a no-load mutual fund. There is a time value to money, so the earlier you start investing the better. Invest in things that appreciate rathern than spend on things that depreciate. Secure your own retirement.
