Chinese Proverb

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

Twenty nine years ago the US Olympic Hockey Team, a group of college kids, came from behind to defeat the Russian team (the best hockey team in the world at the time). This was one of the greatest upsets in the history of sports. Even now I get chills when I think of it. No one at the time believed those kids had a chance to win that game. Well almost no one--their coach told them that they could win and they must have believed him because they played that game as though they were the better team. They had an opportunity to make history and that is just what they did.

Life presents us all with many great opportunities and what we do with our opportunities determines what happens in our lives. Please take a minute to read and digest the words to this great old poem and let it's wisdom permeate your life.

By Walter Malone (1866-1915)

They do me wrong who say I come no more.
When once I knock and fail to find you in;
For every day I stand outside your door,
And bid you wake, and rise to fight and win.

Wail not for precious chances passed away,
Weep not for golden ages on the wane!
Each night I burn the records of the day-
At sunrise every soul is born again!

Laugh like a boy at splendors that have sped,
To vanished joys be blind and deaf and dumb;
My judgements seal the dead past with its dead,
But never bind a moment yet to come.

Though deep in mire, wring not your hands and weep;
I lend my arm to all who say "I Can!"
No shame-faced outcast ever sank so deep,
But yet might rise and be again a man.

Dost thou behold thy lost youth all aghast?
Dost reel from righteous Retribution's blow?
Then turn from blotted archives of the past,
And find the future's pages white as snow.

Art thou a mourner? Rouse thee from thy spell;
Art thou a sinner? Sins may be forgiven;
Each morning gives thee wings to flee from hell,
Each night a star to guide thy feet to heaven.

A Formula for Success by Thomas J. Watson

Here is a great quote from Tomas J. Watson who built the IBM, Corporation, into the world's largest manufacturer of data-processing equipment.

Would you like me to give you a formula for success?
It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure.

You're thinking of failure as the enemy of success.
But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure

- or you can learn from it.

So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can.

Because, remember that's where you'll find success.

Quote by James Allen: Author, As a Man Thinketh.

"Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results."

In this popular 1909 poem, Rudyard Kipling, depicts a very wise parent explaining to their son the traits of a successful person through illustrations.

Withstanding the test of time the lessons of this poem are just as relevant today as they were one hundred years ago...

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,Or being lied about,
don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream-and not make dreams your master;
If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And-which is more-you'll be a Man, my son!

Real Estate Investor Training - The Credit Game

By: Dennis Henson

Do you know the five factors that determine your score in the Credit Game?

When playing any game if you don’t know the rules you are destined to lose and losing this game can be very costly.

As a young boy I was persuaded to put in a nickel and join in a card game. After my first move one of the other players yelled RENEGE and took my nickel. I was shocked! I lost my money because I did not know the rules of the game and I was mad because I let those guys take advantage of me. Back then a nickel was a lot of money to me and losing that money made a big impression. But that taught me a valuable lesson and that was to be sure that I knew the rules before I entered into any other games--especially if they involved money.
