New Year

Are You Still Smoking?

There are SO many reasons to quit smoking … And NO good reasons to continue. I ran across this video on Doctor Oz’s website that illustrates what happens in your lungs when you breathe in cigarette smoke . . .

My friend, Joe Weaver, author of the book “The Tao of Quitting Smoking,” listed 100 Reasons to Quit Smoking.  My top 10 from his list are here.  You’ll also find links to his site and other quit smoking resources there and here.

It’s that time of year when we’re all thinking of New Year’s Resolutions.  Some smoker’s just can’t see through their smoke.  But, if you want to take a giant leap of health, stop smoking today.  ARE YOU READY?

10 Guidelines for Dealing With People

Norman Vincent Peale
These 10 Guidelines for Dealing with People are as true today as the day they were written by Norman Vincent Peale. I’m taking them to heart. Any one of them would make a great New Year’s resolution.

To learn more about Norman Vincent Peale’s philosophy, read his book The Power of Positive Thinking

  1. Learn to remember names.  A person’s name is very important to him or her.
  2. Be a comfortable person so there is not strain in being around you.
  3. Learn to be easygoing so things won’t bother you.
  4. Don’t be egotistical; don’t give the impression that you know it all.
  5. Learn to be interesting so people will want to be with you and get something stimulating from you.
  6. Get the “scratchy” elements out of your personality.
  7. Drain off your grievances.  Honestly try to heal every misunderstanding you have.
  8. Work at liking people until you learn to do so naturally.  Sure, everyone has faults; overlook them.
  9. Never miss a chance to say “congratulations” or to give support at a difficult time.
  10. Delelop a spiritual depth in yourself so you have something to pass on to the people you know.  Learn how to share this strength with others.

This is such a busy time of year. What will the New Year mean to you?

A new diet?
A new attitude?
A new business?

New Year’s resolutions are easy to make, but hard to keep.
Whatever you decide to do this coming year, I wish you success.
