Gun Control or ?

I just don't get the opposition to gun control. If you want to own a gun for your protection and a rifle for hunting, ok.

I posted this yesterday on Facebook, and have gotten more responses to this than anything I've ever written. People chimed in with their positions - pro and con - but without slamming others or using curse words. Just respectful, articulate conversation about what might work, what doesn't work, and what the future might hold. Awesome!

Me or We?

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 338-December 4 “When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”—Alexander Graham Bell I have to solve the problem of me before I can solve the problem of we.

Boone One of the benefits of our fast-moving, information-saturated, technology-enhanced lives today is the wide variety of choices we are offered. It’s wonderful to have the freedom to choose where we’ll live, what work we’ll do, what friends we’ll have. This is also a major cause of stress.

The “Take it Away” Close

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 331-November 27 “I had a terrible thing happen to me yesterday. Opportunity knocked on my door and by the time I unhooked the chain, pushed back the bolt, turned the two locks, and shut off the burglar alarm—it was gone!”—Robert Orben My seminar series was going very well. For eight weeks, I taught the Financial Stress Reduction Workshop, people were getting great results and now they often wanted to continue the process.

Treasure Ships

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 330-November 26 “Men trip not on mountains. They trip on molehills.”—Chinese Proverb Sally called again today. “Help!” she cried. “My business has slowed down recently and I’m afraid I should cut my prices back in order to get more customers. But I like my new price and think I’m worth it. What should I do?” A talented hair stylist, Sally had just finished my workshop several months before. She raised her prices and had great success in getting new customers during the course, but had apparently drifted back into some fear thinking since then. Her fear started manifesting in fewer clients and reduced … [Read more...]
