30 Days to a Better Man - Day 18

Find your N.U.T.s


An off-shoot of the Core values from Day 1, My Non-negotiable, Unalterable Terms are ;

1. Do the loving thing, speak the loving word to all men and all times, except in life-threatening situations then do the loving thing.

2. My walk with God is my life and every second I live is part of this walk.

3. Take care of my body, the sanctuary that houses me.

4. Do all that is within my power to not have a better yesterday in all facets of my life.

5. Approach all situations and every circumstance with a grateful-and-I'm-winning attitude.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 13

De-clutter Your Life 


The hard part of this for me has always been maintaining the de-cluttered status in the house particularly with clothes and miscellaneous items.

Its another weekend so will have time for some de-cluttering and I think the tip about removing something from the house when I bring something new in will help.

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 12

Create your Bucket List


Totally subscribe to the bucket list idea. So here goes;

1) Swim with Dolphins

2) Take the next two exams to get the get the certification that allows me to become a consultant

3) Take a walk on a beach at night, I believe doing this with someone will be 100 times more fun.

4) Get a good camera and start taking good pictures.

5) Sponsor at least one kid's/orphan's education

6)  Own my own business

7) Own a farm

30 Days to a Better Man - Day 10

Memorize "If"

Memorizing ;
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 all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath 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!
