Get Motivated

I went to the “Get Motivated! Business Seminar” at the Palace this past week. Friends asked so, Peggy Jo, did you get motivated? Did I? I was motivated just reading the lineup of speakers: Steve Forbes, Zig Ziglar, Dick Vitale, Phil Town, Peter Lowe, Gen. Colin Powell, Tom Hopkins, Dr. Robert Schuller, and Rudolph Giuliani.

My friends laughed and said “You weren’t the one who needed to go to the conference” and they rattled off the names of people we knew mutually who might have been in more need.

I went because I knew I’d get pumped and was anxious to hear those powerful people speak. Unfortunately, those who need it the most just aren’t interested, I guess.

Well, here are some of the things I heard:
--Think outside the box
--Stand tall even when things don’t go well
--Keep your spirit up
--Be the best you can be each day
--Start small, think tall
--Problems are illusions
--Take action – Taking in information without implementation is useless
--People will follow you when they can trust you
--We’re not judged by the number of times we fail, but by the number of times we succeed
--Never see failure as failure, but as a learning experience
and the opportunity to develop a sense of humor
--To be a leader, you have to love people
--Prepare for everything you can think of and, when the unthinkable happens, you’ll be ready
--What you believe is important – when you believe you can, you can and when you believe you can’t, you can’t
--Plant the seeds of success in your life and expect the harvest of success to come
--Our words are like the rudder of a ship – they determine the direction and destiny of our lives
--What you send out is what you’ll get back
--The “Attitude of Gratitude” – the more you’re grateful for what you get, the more you’ll have to be grateful for
--They all acknowledged the power of God in their lives
And, as Zig Ziglar (at almost 80 years of age) said: “Read the Bible every day and read the newspaper every day. Then you will know what both sides are up to.

I heard that a lot of the PJSN readers were at the conference and even ran into a few of you. Let’s hear from you with your impressions.

Get Motivated!

ARTLOFT TO UNVEIL NEW WORK BY AMERICAN ARTIST BRIAN ANDREAS

Debut of “Lifetime,” Latest Print in the StoryPeople Collection, Marks National Breast Cancer Month;

Artist Has Earmarked All Proceeds for Research & Cure American artist and writer Brian Andreas, whose work has reached into the hearts and memories of his hundreds of thousands of collectors, introduces a new work into the StoryPeople collection in honor of National Breast Cancer Month. Proceeds from the sale of “Lifetime,” which will be unveiled at Artloft in October, will be donated to breast cancer research in perpetuity, or until a cure is found.

“Lifetime” was created when a volunteer for the End Cancer Walk in Edmonton, Alberta, contacted StoryPeople, writing of her commitment to the cause and her love of StoryPeople. Andreas responded by creating a new story, designating revenue from its sale for breast cancer research and related organizations. He has asked gallery owners to help the effort by making a special announcement of “Lifetime’s” debut. The print will be available at galleries worldwide and through StoryPeople’s website (www.storypeople.com).

Artloft will also donate 10% of total sales of the print for the month of October to the Karmanos Cancer Institute for research.

“Lifetime” will be available at Artloft beginning 9/18/06. The matted print measures 11” x 14” and retails for $40

Artloft is located at, 203 E. Maple, Birmingham, MI 48009, www.artloftonline.com, where a full array of StoryPeople prints, sculptures, books, and cards are available.

For more information about Artloft, please contact Rachael A.Woods 248.647.4007 or artloft@sbcglobal.net.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

Free information service

For those of you who do not know, phone companies are charging us $1.00 or more for 411 / information calls when they don't have to.

There is a no charge number for Directory Assistance When one needs to use the 411 / information option simply dial: 1-800-FREE-411 or 1 800 373 3411 without incurring a charge. This works on both your home phones and cell phones.

The down side for cell phones is that the service does not dial the number for you as some of the cell phone information services do. Therefore, one must have to have a good memory, two hands available and a pencil and paper to capture the phone number.

For both land and cell, one has to listen to some commercials before the phone number is given.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
