Today’s post will make you smile and warm your heart with appreciation for the good people who “go above and beyond” to create value for their clients. Click here to read a MARVELous story about Grime Fighters, sent to me by Andrew Powell of Montreal, Canada.
These are NOT Steve Jobs’ Last Words — but they are making their way through the Internet as such. I share them with you here because even if they aren’t, I am sure they will ring true with you as an honourable principle to LIVE your LIFE.
“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world? Sick bed…
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”
Wise words to live by as you try to create the masterpiece that is YOUR life, a life without regrets.

The world has sadly lost a true cultural and musical ICON – David Bowie.
One of his many legacies is his 23-year love story with Iman. Below is a prescient tweet she posted two days before he passed…
Yes, it’s that time of year again – time to do your New Year’s Resolutions!
If you want 2016 to be DIFFERENT/BETTER than 2015, you have to do something DIFFERENT, change something…
The best way to make a change is to make New Year’s Resolutions!
At a recent workshop, we discussed how to make good business decisions in quite a bit of details. Today’s post is about how smart people make good decisions in general, published by The Huffington Post. Enjoy and may your decisions for 2016 be good ones!
Every once in a while there is a video (or commercial that needs no introduction or explanation… This is one of those. Watch and weep.
You just have to see these two jet pack flyers take on an Emirates A380 over the skies of Dubai… Amazing!
If you’ve never seen this amazing artist… Be amazed by what can be done with sand and a light table!
As much as I am an optimist, sometimes I admit finding it hard to see the “good in society” these days…
This weekend I saw goodness first hand.
A (previously unknown) neighbour, who parks two car spaces away from me in my underground parking garage left a note on my car window to call him. When I did, he revealed he found a wallet on the roof of my car, with $1,300 in it and wanted to return it to its rightful owner.
I was shocked at all the steps he had taken to find out who it belonged to. We found out that it belonged to the person who rents my second car space… It took +/-10 calls to reunite the wallet to its rightful owner*, demonstrating there are still nice people out there!
* As it turns out, the wallet belonged to a lawyer and the $1,300 were donations he was to deposit in a charity’s account… So you see, when you do good, you DO get rewarded!
I am a firm believer in the Law Of Attraction and the principle of “paying it forward”.
Just remember: Your acts of kindness, generosity never go unnoticed and even if they do – do them anyway. The world will be a better place for it.
We all know the expression “Life’s too short to be too serious”… Today’s video clip gives you an excuse to watch a dog having the time of his/her life, giving us the thrill to see what a master “showdog” can do – truly amazing!
If you’re wondering what this has to do with Personal Mastery, think about it… If you can’t take 5 minutes to enjoy a video like this, what’s the point of whatever you’re doing. No one on their deathbed was ever heard saying “I wish I would have spent more time working…”
The common reflection is “I wish I would have taken the time to enjoy my “moments” more… To fully live them “in the moment”.
Take 5 minutes and live the joy and exuberance of one dog doing what he/she loves to do… Catch those frisbees!
