In fact, after you're finished reading these, it might be a good idea to save this self help e-mail somewhere on your computer or print it and read it every
1. Paying Cash is Better Than Borrowing
The purpose of credit and borrowing money is to make a profit for the lender. Every time that you borrow money
to buy something, you're agreeing to pay more money for it later so that someone else can make a profit. Therefore
it's best to buy what you want with cash and to save the extra money for helping yourself instead of someone
2. Your Health is Your Life
You only have one body and it has to last you for the rest of your life. Therefore, your life and your health
are directly linked and you should guard your personal health with your life. This means refusing to give in to the
temptation to eat junk or to live an inactive lifestyle. Make proper nutrition, consistent balanced exercise and
stress management a part of your lifestyle and you'll have a good healthy life.
3. You Must Give to Get
One of the major causes for unhappiness is expecting to get something for nothing. In life, you will receive
only according to quality and quantity with which you give. This is true in your relationships, your health, career
and your financial life.
4. Being Right Does Not Build Relationships
The best way to build empowering relationships with other people is to
understand them and to be understood by them. Getting into disputes, debates or arguments about who is right and
who is wrong is a dead end. Focus instead on being compassionate and treating people the way you would like
to be treated.
5. Most of Getting What You Want is Being Bold Enough to Ask
There are two things which keep people from getting what they really want out of life: they either don't know
what they want, or they are too afraid to ask for it. Learn to ask for the things you want, if people say no,
you've lost nothing. But if you make it a habit to ask for what you want you'd be surprised at how often you get
6. Fear Can Be Your Best Friend
Fear is not always bad, and sometimes it can be your best friend. If you're afraid of being in poor health,
you'll work a lot harder at keeping yourself healthy. If you're afraid of having someone else (like the
government), responsible for your financial life you'll work harder to build your financial safety net. In fact,
The only time that fear becomes bad is when it keeps you from doing something you really want to do.
7. Knowledge is Only Power When it's Used
Some of the smartest people in this world never use their knowledge and therefore never benefit from it.
However, when knowledge is applied it becomes active and powerful...it also increases your learning because you
begin to learn from experience. When you learn something useful, put it to use as soon as possible.
8. There are Seasons in Life
You'll have times in your life when everything seems to be happening at once, then you'll also have times when
nothing seems to be happening. Learn to endure the seasons of life by working hard when you have plenty to do, and
by saving your financial resources for times when you may not have as much. Also, learn to use the slower seasons
to rest and recharge yourself.
9. Marry Your Best Friend
Looks fade, so does physical attraction and so does the romantic "puppy love." If you want to have a lasting
courtship and to raise your children as a couple, marry your best friend.
10. Collect Memories
Keep a Journal, take pictures and keep them somewhere safe. Someday you'll be very glad that you did, and so
will your generations after you.
11. Choose a Career that Makes You Happy
Life is too short to be unhappy with what you're doing 40 to 50 hours a week. Not to mention that unhappiness in
your career will filter into other areas of your life. Choose a job that you love, and you'll never have to work
another day... and you get paid for enjoying your job.
Not a bad deal.
12. Higher Standards Mean Higher Rewards
Having high expectations for your health, your relationships, your career and your financial life might mean
you'll have to work harder. It might also mean you'll be disappointed more often.
But the rewards that it will bring in strength of character and then success will far outweigh any price you had
to pay. Keep your standards high, and don't settle for less than what you really want.
