Stacy and Her Children
Stacy is a single Mother of two children who is facing eviction from her New Jersey apartment. I spoke with Stacy at her workplace this morning to
offer words of encouragement and let her know exactly how I would help. Friend, the need here is genuine, clear, and urgent. I have been given permission to share her contact information with you. Please consider joining me in making a monetary donation to Stacy and her family before June 1, 2006. Thank you for your time. - F. B.

QUOTES OF THE WEEK
move forward in my life every day, even if it's only a tiny
step, because I know that great things are accomplished with
tiny moves, but nothing is accomplished by standing still."
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us."
- Romans 8:37
You're Not in a Time-Warp ...
And you didn't miss this the May 15, 2006 issue of "Seeds." I recently returned home from managing DeeJazz: The Musical Messenger Pre-Tour. DeeJazz ( http://deejazz.com/ ) and her equally as beautiful and talented sister, Hattie Mae Pembrook ( http://hattiemae.com/ ) enjoyed wonderful receptions and standing ovations at all of their appearances. Hattie Mae is the author of the CD's companion text, Messages to Awaken Yourself. By the way, Dolores "DeeJazz" Jackson's CD is now available in over 2,400 "brick and mortar" stores nationwide. Pick up your copy of A Musical Messenger if you haven't already done so. The companion text is available at Hattie's website.

Don't Wait Until Your "All-time Low" To Change Your Life!
It can be incredibly challenging to keep the motivational juices flowing. Especially when what you seek is nowhere in sight. If you're not achieving all that you truly desire in your life, let today be the day you regain all hope and direction. So, where do you start?
Study successful people. I read dozens of books each year which outline how individuals became successful. The stories are inspiring. My favorites are those which come straight from the Bible. These stories are powerful resources for soaring to your next success.
Here's your assignment for today. Get to the library or bookstore and identify the books which highlight exceptional human achievement stories. Read these stories and take notes. Then, use them to take you from where you are, to where you want to be.
"What Can I Do Now That Will Make the Most Impact?"
A great question to ask yourself when you have so much to do but do not know where to start, is:
"What can I do now that will make the most impact?"
This question which will help you generate the momentum needed for moving forward. And, as you can see, as soon as you ask it, you effortlessly go from "overwhelm" to "in-control" and in record time. The beauty of this question is that you can visit it every quarter hour and generate a specific answer that will help you stay focus. It's an excellent way to help you identify what's most important, "now." Get in the habit of asking this powerful question. If you do, you will make a positive and profound impact in your life.
Mind Your Money by Cheryl Broussard
What's Your Net-Worth?
Your net-worth is your wealth, not your annual income. Just because you make $100,000 a year doesn't mean you are wealthy. It's what you do with that $100,000 that determines your wealth. So the first step in determining your wealth is to know your net-worth.
What is the Net-Worth Formula?
Assets-Liabilities = Net -Worth
What is an asset? A wealth-creating asset generally increases in value or provides a return, such as:
Stocks and bonds Some assets like your car, boat, clothes, big screen TV isn't wealth-creating assets because don't earn money or rise in value.
What is a liability?
Liabilities, also called debt, is money you owe, such as:
Credit card balances
Car loan balance
Calculating Your Net-Worth
To find how wealthy you are, subtract your liabilities from your assets. This is your net-worth. Your financial objective is to increase your net-worth annually. This can be accomplished in 2 ways:
1) by lowering the amount of your liabilities and
2) increasing your wealth creation assets.
P.S. Got Questions? Beginning in June, I will answer one question from a subscriber at the end of the Money tip every week. Please send me an email with your financial or business question to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also feel free to send me your comments or money concerns you would like to see addressed in the Mind Your Money Tips of The Week.
Much abundance! - C.B.

To Your Health
Is your keyboard making you ill?
Computer keyboards -- like almost everything -- carry bacteria. Most of the bacteria is harmless; however some can cause you to be sick. This is especially the case if you share your computer with others. There is a simple solution. Clean and disinfect your keyboard regularly with a solvent that will not harm your keyboard.
I shared a keyboard with a co-worker years back. She had year-round allergies and blew her nose at least 6 times an hour. Not Having all of knowledge that I am sharing with you today, I used a disinfectant solvent that was so strong, it erased most of the letters from the keyboard! So, be careful. Even hot, sterile water is sufficient. Researchers of the University of North Carolina report that Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, Sani-Cloth Plus and Cavi-Wipes kept keyboards free of harmful bacteria for 48 hours.
How to Achieve Any Goal by Anna Johnson
To achieve any goal, all you need to do is COMMIT yourself to achieving it. Sounds simple ... but what that really means is committing yourself to doing every single thing that's necessary to achieve that goal. And that's where it can be challenging...
You may tell yourself that you're "committed" to getting a new job ... or to start a business ... or to become wealthy ... or to get a book published... But have you really committed yourself to doing ALL the little -- and big tasks -- that are necessary to achieve that goal? Are you committed to making ALL the necessary sacrifices?
That's what commitment to a goal is really about. So ... how do you commit yourself then? You'll hear people talk about visualization, affirmations, positive self-talk and other techniques designed to "reprogram" your mind so that you're COMPELLED to fulfill your commitment. You'll also hear many people claim that these techniques don't work! Well, it doesn't matter "what works" -- what matters is "what works for YOU." And what works for you is... WHAT HAS WORKED FOR YOU BEFORE. You see, you've already committed to achieving goals in the past ... and you've achieved those goals. So why not do what you did then in order to commit yourself now?
For example, if you're starting a new hobby, you might recall that when you embraced other hobbies in the past you did specific things that helped you learn a lot about the hobby and develop key skills in a relatively short period of time. It might have been purchasing books and magazines related to the hobby, visiting relevant websites, and/or joining groups of like-minded people to discuss and take part in the hobby. Not only are these activities enjoyable and valuable in themselves, but they also form your Commitment Ritual, which essentially enables you to fully commit to, and stick with, the new hobby.
Another example -- when I decided to become a competitive runner a few years ago (as opposed to just running for fitness) I read a lot of books and magazines about running, I joined a running club, I kept a training diary, I joined an online running forum, I competed in races, and I visualized a lot, among other things. That's how I committed myself to running.
In fact, everything I did was part of a "COMMITMENT RITUAL" that got me hooked on running -- and not just willing, but EAGER -- to get up and train at 6 AM every morning -- rain, hail or shine! And, now, having had my kids, I'm going through the same ritual to get back into competitive running again. Now you might have a different Commitment Ritual. In fact, you might have different Commitment Rituals for different kinds of goals. But the point is -- you have at least one Commitment Ritual. So ... the question is: Which tried and true Commitment Ritual can you use now to achieve your current goal?

The Don't Think Like an Elephant National Reading Tour needs the support of individuals and the corporate community to provide school children across America with the resources they need to achieve without limitations.
There are many different opportunities for businesses or corporations to partner with the tour which aims to show children how to rise far above their potential, and see well beyond their immediate circumstances.
The initiative is seeking businesses and corporations whose philanthropic goals align with the mission of Phoenix Children's Hospital (my charity of choice) and the tour. As a donor or corporate partner, you can make a meaningful commitment to the execution and actualization of this mission. Specifically, in the lives of over 200,000 children, and in more than 1,126 communities across America, over a 23 month period. For more information about ways you can partner with us, visit
