How Giving Makes You Rich

I just read a fascinating study that proves giving makes you rich. The article states, “More giving doesn’t just correlate with higher income; it causes higher income.” (Italics mine.) See the article at www.portfolio.com/views/columns/2007/10/15/Charity-Makes-Wealth After that, go read my book, The Greatest Money-Making Secret in History. And then give some money away.

Many times, when I am facing a dilemma, problem I find the way to feel bad about what ever decision I make. Even though this decision is the best I can do, I will find a way to beat myself up over and over again. I know that this is all wrong, but it’s like a second nature to me.

Yesterday, as I had my 1 on 1 coaching call with Barbara De Angelis, I got to go down to the core of this behavior. I will write some more about it in a different time, but as I was sharing my discoveries with my Friend Mary Joy, this is what she wrote:

“I love what you discovered on your call. I used to try to get “it right” and be perfect and get very upset with myself when I was not. We all mess up along the way. No one can “get it right” all the time. I have a favorite song that may help you from the Disney channel.

It is from Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana called “Nobodies Perfect”.
It is fun and “light-hearted” like you are looking for!

Here are the words:Nobody’s Perfect lyrics
(and here is the link to the song

Everybody makes mistakes… Everybody has those days… 1 2 3 4!
Everybody makes mistakes… Everybody has those days… Everybody knows what what I’m talkin’ ’bout… Everybody gets that way… [x2]

Sometimes I’m in a jam
I’ve gotta make a plan
It might be crazy
I do it anyway
No way to know for sure
I’ll figure out a cure
I’m patchin’ up the holes
But then it overflows
If I’m not doin’ to well
Why be so hard on my self?

[Chorus]

Nobody’s Perfect!
I gotta work it!
Again and again ’til I get it right
Nobody’s Perfect!
You live and you learn it!
And if I mess it up sometimes…
Nobody’s perfect

Sometimes I work a scheme
But then it flips on me
Doesn’t turn out how I planned
get stuck in quick sand
No problem, can’t be solved
Once I get involved
I try to be delicate
Then crash right into it
My intentions are good
Sometimes just misunderstood

[Chorus]

Nobody’s perfect!
I gotta work it!
I know in time I’ll find a way
Nobody’s perfect!
Sometimes I fix things up
And they fall apart again
Nobody’s perfect

I might mix things up
But I always get it right in the end

[Talking]

Next time you feel like…
it’s just one of those days…
when you just can’t seem to win
If things don’t turn out the way you plan,
FIGURE SOMETHING ELSE OUT!
Don’t stay down! Try again! YEAH!

[Singing (x2)]

Everybody makes mistakes…..
everybody has those days…..
everybody knows what, what I’m talkin’ ’bout…….
everybody gets that way

Nobody’s Perfect!
I gotta work it!
Again and again ’til I get it right!
Nobody’s Perfect!
Ya live and ya learn it!
And if I mess it up sometimes…

Nobody’s Perfect!
I gotta work it!
I know in time I’ll find the way
Nobody’s Perfect.
Ya live and ya learn it!’
Cause everybody makes mistakes

Nobody’s Perfect! No no! Nobody’s Perfect!

When a friend of mine was in China last month, she saw a Chinese modern dance competition on TV. One couple won one of the top prizes.

The lady has one arm and the guy has one leg. They performed gracefully and beautifully. The lady in her 30s was a dancer and was trained as one since she was a little girl. Later she got into some kind of accident and lost her entire left arm. She was depressed for a few years. It seemed that someone asked her to coach a Children’s dancing group.
From that point on, she realized she could not forget dancing. She still loved to dance. She wanted to dance again. So she started to do some of her old routines. But by her losing an arm, she also lost her balance. It took a while before she could even making simple turns and spins without falling. Eventually she got it.
Then she heard some guy in his 20s had lost a leg in an accident. This guy also fell into the usual denial, depression and anger type of emotional roller coaster. She looked him up (seemingly he was from a different Province) and persuaded him to dance with her. He had never danced. And to dance with one leg? Are you joking with me? No way.
But she didn’t give up. He reluctantly agreed. ” I have nothing else to do anyway.” She started to teach him dancing 101. The two broke up a few times because the guy had no concept of using muscle, control his body, and a few other basic things about dancing. When she became frustrated and lost patience with him, he would walk out. Eventually they came back together and started training.
They hired a choreographer to design routines for them. She would fly high (held by him) with both arms (a sleeve for an arm) flying in the air. He could bend horizontally supported by one leg and she leaning on him, etc. They danced beautifully and they legitimately beat others in the competition. I would like to share with you this most magnificent and touching performance!

It is a living proof that strong spirit can conquer any physical limitations!

“I keep remembering one of my Guru’s teaching about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works.
Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it and sometime even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. ……All the sorrow and trouble of his world is caused by unhappy people. Not only in the big global Hitler-‘n’ Stalin picture, but also on the smaller personal level. Even in my own life, I can see exactly where my episodes of unhappiness have brought suffering of distress or (at the very least) inconvenience for those around me. The search for contentment is. Therefore, not merely for a self preserving and self benefiting act, but also as a generous gift to the world. Clearing out all your misery gets you out of the way. You cease to be an obstacle, not only to yourself but to anyone else. Only then are you free to serve and enjoy other people”

Eat, Pray Love By Elizabeth Gilbert P.260

My journey to find real deep happiness started long time ago. It seems like I have been looking for the right balance all my life. A very significant time in my life was when I was 16 and everything I thought the world was, collapsed. My whole world and my perspective about life changed forever. I was in the middle of my parents divorce, and I got hurt that my heart was bleeding. At that time I learned to put emotional walls to block any attempt, from anyone including myself, to get hurt again. Building those walls was quite natural, if I may call it this way, but removing them is a totally different game.

My journey for happiness is not around the world, but it definitely around the United States. Through seminars, meeting wonderful people, experiencing love in the deepest places of my heart, I learn to see my walls. I learned to understand them and most important, to understand how those decisions about love and happiness are controlling my life today as a person, wife, mother and a friend.

My search for happiness is still happening, I fight for it, I strive for it and I know that I will find it. What I am really looking for is the love for myself, because without it, as Elizabeth Gilbert says, “only than you are free to serve and enjoy other people”. I know that I will find this deep love and acceptance that I am so much looking for.

I must admit that although a bit late, I have discovered the power of YouTube.com

It always amazing to see what you can find on YouTube. I received this email directing me to a movie by Napoleon Hill, author of the classic book Think and Grow Rich, See it by going to www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GCaEZscfvA.


I love listening to Wayne Dyer. I love his voice and his message, it is always makes me feel so much better. As I was searching on Youtube for his materials, I stumble accross one of his shows. Dr. Dyer talked about how we think at some points in life that we got No Where, but if you take the same letters it is actually can be changed to – Now here. This is a great way to change our thinking. Sometime I ask myslef ” what is the point of your work? what is the goal for yourself? ” Sometimes, I feel that the more I learn and think I got it,I am actually loosing it. I feel like I am getting no where but just circling around and around my thoughts. But, putting it in a NOW HERE make so much sense. I am not suppose to get anywhere, I am now here, this is exactly where I should be, this is exactly what I should be doing, this is it.

It is great to have this tool, to be able to move from confusion to clarity just by changing the words 🙂

Here I am , in San Diego, visiting friends, and I know I am Now Here.

It’s always amazing to learn the stories behind people, this time behind Rocky.

Get inspired and take actions, knowing that you can achieve what you want!
