A few months ago, I wrote about the fabulous gifts my kids gave me on Mother’s Day. Yesterday, I pulled one of the papers out of my “50 Days of Happy” jar and here is the quote it contained.
“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” ~Albert Einstein
How great is that?!
Everyone IS a genius! Maybe you’re a genius when it comes to:
- Building homes, or
- Inventing things, or
- Writing novels, or
- Investing money, or
- Doing brain surgery
Or maybe you’re a genius at:
- Making friends, or
- Preparing delicious dinners, or
- Organizing a home, or
- Planting a garden, or
- Remembering people’s birthdays, or
- Hugging a child, or
- Loving an animal
Or maybe, (just maybe) you’re the very best (in my opinion) kind of genius; the kind of genius who:
- Realizes your thoughts create your reality and so you focus on what’s going right, rather than what’s going wrong, or
- Appreciates everything you already have, rather than taking it all for granted, or
- Spends more time thinking about what you do want, than you waste thinking about what you don’t want or don’t have or are worried about.
That’s the kind of genius I aspire to be.
What kind of genius are you?

As I put the finishing touches on my next master mind program and choose the day/time/start date, in my mind it feels like it is always-never a good time to promote something new. When you think about it, there’s always some reason why this day or that month or this time would not be desirable. Continue reading
This morning, as I walked down the stairs to make the coffee and start my day, I nearly fell. I caught myself and no harm was done, except for an abrupt WAKE UP from the Universe. GOOOOOOOD Morning!!!
RN’s, Pharmacists, Psychologists and Nurse Educators can receive Continuing Medical Education credits for attending a seminar on The Habits of Happy People :-)
There is something validating, even empowering about having the medical community acknowledge the health benefits of positive thinking and being happy. The brochure on the left outlines the advantages to our overall well-being related to developing habits which make us HAPPY!
I recently listened to a really great seminar on Prosperity and the teacher said something which I thought was simply brilliant.
“If you don’t want it, don’t say it.”
We’ve all probably heard the saying “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” How about “When the teacher is ready, the student appears”? Or more accurately, “When the teacher is ready, the student teaches.” Continue reading
I’m currently working with several people who are enjoying “The Strangest Secret,” by Earl Nightingale. Yesterday, I read a few quotes from the book and asked a client to choose one that resonates with him. He chose the following, by Ralph Waldo Emerson…
“A man is what he thinks about all day long” Continue reading
YUK. I hate salmon!
Imagine reading the menu in a fabulous restaurant. There are so many delicious things to choose from. You can have steak or chicken or lobster or pasta or the big salad or perhaps… salmon. Continue reading
