Israel Remembrance Day

Posted on Apr 28, 2020 by in Personal, Today, Holidays

For my Hebrew speaking friends, this is an appropriate sentiment for today:

For those of you who aren't, here's the gist. This Rabbi Levi was called and requested to provide comfort to the parents of a fallen soldier. He was at a loss. He knew there was no comfort.

And he addressed the day. It's not for the families of the fallen. They live with this every day. It's for the rest of us.

Rabbi Levi saw this, admitted to the parents there were no words of comfort, but there was this:

Our obligation as the survivors is to live lives that honor the sacrifice that those who came before, who died for us, made.

The implied invitation of the Rabbi, and my express one, is to live such lives.

May no life that was given have been given in vain. May it be God's will that our commanders, politicians and countries protect those who protect us as they put their lives at risk for us.

May we find it in ourselves to live lives that honor those who came before, and then actually go out and live them.

The Secret:

Here's the secret in a few short minutes. The Secret is the Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction: What You Focus on You Get

Here is Jack Canfield's summary at 44:00 minutes in.

  • Decide what You want
  • Believe You Can Have it
  • Believe You Deserve it
  • Believe it's Possible for You
  • Close Your Eyes, every day for several minutes; visualize having what you already want and feeling the feelings of already having it
  • Come out of that and focus on what you are grateful for already, and
  • Really enjoy it
  • Then go into the world and release it to the universe and trust that the universe will figure out how to manifest it.

When You Have Inspired Thought,
You Have to Trust it,
And You Have to Act on it.

An Entrepreneurial Mindset for Your Relationship (and Outsized Results)

A lot of people are stuck at home, or spending more time there than they are accustomed to. I'm guessing this might be leading to some stress in personal relations.

All of a sudden, we haven't got an office or a job to disappear to, or a gym to blow off some steam. And this might be a cause of stress, but it could also be presenting an opportunity, if we're sharp enough to notice, to pivot as an Entrepreneur might say.

Jim Rohn's Best Year Ever Notes

Jim Rohn's Best Year Ever Notes

These are my notes from Jim Rohn's best year ever. I figured I'd share for two reasons: (1) it's good to review for myself, and (2) maybe it'll inspire you to move your life in the right direction at this difficult time.

Foundation:

  • Time is more valuable than money
  • Things don't just happen; things happen just
  • Best place to start is sincerity: Sincerity is not a test of truth.
  • Ideas + Inspiration
  • Ideas Can be Life Changing: Sometimes you just need one more idea to unlock it all.
  • Some do and Some don't; that's pretty much the philosophy.
  • Take the simple approach: Leave the why as a mystery.
  • Believers believe. Mocker's mock. The perplexed perplex: Don't fight it.
