To laugh often and much;To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.This is to have succeeded.-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well, for those who know me well I only complain when there’s really a point- like holiday shopping help that doesn’t know a thing about…!!
I was in a big chain store (not my fav thing:)) since there was a free deal on a great phone upgrade that I was about to pay for (at least in my Prosperity Game recent experience).
OK- so I purchased it (a few charges for a few things even though “free”) and had to leave in the middle of “syncing” with my old phone for a client meeting: they informed me I had to take the phones; I could not leave them and come back since they would not be responsible- OK- no biggie I was thinking. Later I came back gave them my syncing wares and then to my dismay over one hour and forty minutes later- had a true waiting experience in a media store with friendly and incompetent help. They synced- I was told there were 4,000 contacts syncing- no way!! and it would take a while (and I could not leave and had no laptop or reading material with me, and needless to say, no phone). So…I paced around for a while, asked many questions and then was gently guided to the reclining chairs at the big TV area. I watched a clip of Spiderman (looped) and then put in makeshift earplugs – tissues- to block out the sound of 3 football tv’s full blast behind me- and tried to relax. That didn’t last long. Later I went through a big writing pad in my bag, pulled out a few pages to follow-up with and threw out the rest. Yay! Letting go & productivity for a short time..then onto wandering and reading the backs of dvd’s and tv series I haven’t seen. I called home from their phone. I found another, quieter TV experience, that made me feel good and wonder perhaps that’s why this happened- to hear classical music and see a great scene from “Black Swan” and then a wonderful concert clip of Peter Gabriel. OK- I had my moments of Zen and was truly ready for this experience to close. My phone wasn’t ready yet. I checked with security for my lost glove; no luck. I was pacing again, and then, finally it was ready!! I had a quick tete-a tete with the very young man in charge of my operation, and he said, “this would have taken only 30 minutes if you had bought an inexpensive..SIM card. I said, “I did- it’s there-just look”. So it was, so it goes…

To all my friends recently touched by destruction and dire circumstances, as our collective prayers, thoughts and actions aid recovery from Superstorm Sandy, and to all of my friends not in the New York Metro area, let’s remember we can always accelerate resilience in spirit with these simple steps:
• Set specific goals that are attainable. Take baby steps to get there when necessary.
• When you are feeling down due to personal circumstances, take stock of your strengths and positive circumstances and BE GRATEFUL!!
• Surround yourself with positive people as much as possible.
• Do not read, watch or listen to the news if you become “too upset”.
You are the only one who can control your attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing potential, you can take calculated risks and overcome challenges .
It takes an open, creative mind free from anxiety to pick up on opportunities.
They are out there ready to be accessed by your positive and resilient radar!!

a Guest Post:
Imagine the Internet without the gazillion articles and blog posts about how to make money, how to be happy, how to lose weight, or how to win back your girlfriend or boyfriend. The above scenario would never exist because as humans, we are constantly searching for ways to feel good. The web is a mirror held to humanity, and the endless self-help content is a reflection of our perceived desires as humans. Whether or not we follow the advice and work toward what we want is another thing. Basic needs, of course, are essential to happiness, but many of the desires are artificial. Focusing on excessive details of success like making millions of dollars or having a flawless body is only a distraction.

There’s no doubt that happiness is tied to more than just emotional and spiritual health. Physical and financial health are absolutely essential to health and well being. Things go wrong, however, when there’s more emphasis on one type of health than the other types. We should also analyze our “wants”, and ask ourselves whether they are leading us into an endless pursuit of “more, more, more”, or toward true, lasting happiness.
Pastor, author and relationship guru Ed Young has an interesting outlook in his book “Outrageous, Contagious Joy: Five Big Questions to Help You Discover One Great Life”. Instead of uncovering ways to improve your life like saving money, working out or eating right (which many self-help books address), Ed Young opts for a different strategy in the 352 pages of his book. He encourages you to ask questions first.
What I find to be one of the more interesting questions, as listed on his book description on his website, is “Does God want you to be happy?” Whether you believe in any kind of higher power whether it’s the religious notion of God, or “the universe as one” or anything really, it would seem intuitive that a higher power would want us to succeed, flourish and be happy. To think that we should feel guilty, ashamed or that we should not take full advantage of the happiness that our lives can bring us seems quite foolish. However, the truth is, many people carry around this false guilt all through out their lives. They punish themselves with their addiction to negativity and emotional chaos. Breaking down assumptions and preconceived notions of what this life is “all about” is something Young does in “Outrageous, Contagious Joy” which outlines the search for real happiness. Some of the other questions he asks his readers are “Why are you here?” and “What are you working for?”
Ed Young of Grapevine, Texas is a pastor at Fellowship Church. He is also a New York Times best selling author with 14 books under his belt, including Sexperiment, The Marriage Mirror and Kid CEO. His charismatic presence has led to speak at conferences around the world about relationships, sex and marriage, happiness and life. Young, a non-typical pastor, is heavily praised and considered hip and progressive for his relaxed and youthful style of communication.
Asking yourself important questions can force you to take a hard look at the path of life you are on. It’s possible that your current process is holding you back from being truly happy. For example, you want to spend more time with your wife and kids, but you’re also staying late every day at work in the hopes of a promotion. You want to satisfy your wife and kids with more money to spend on groceries and but you’re sacrificing quality time with them by not coming home for dinner each night. Is it possible that the time spent with your loved ones is more important than being able to reward them with more of their favorite food items or that trip to Seaworld? Prioritizing your basic needs and wants is a must if you are searching for. Often times, the solution is simpler than it seems, but you need to get away from your daily patterns and slip into deconstruction mode to see it more clearly.
