Napoleon Hill is one of my all time favorite authors. I just recently listened to his newest release on his interview with the Devil, “Outwitting The Devil“. Very interesting indeed! He talks a lot about drifters and how they are the easiest for the Devil to ensnare, because they just drift from thing to thing and have no resistance to him.

The quote below is from the Napoleon Hill Foundation. I receive it in my email daily. You might want to sign up as well.
|Drifting, without aim or purpose, is the first cause of failure.Without a plan for your life, it is easier to follow the course of least resistance, to go with the flow, to drift with the current with no particular destination in mind. Having a definite plan for your life greatly simplifies the process of making hundreds of daily decisions that affect your ultimate success. When you know where you want to go, you can quickly decide if your actions are moving you toward your goal or away from it. Without definite, precise goals and a plan for their achievement, each decision must be considered in a vacuum. Definitenessof purpose provides context and allows you to relate specific actions to your overall plan.Permanent link to this post: Drifting, without aim or purpose, is the first cause of failure.

Make it a great day…only you can!
“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”
Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx
1890-1977, Comedian and Film Star

Do you want to make 2012 your best year ever?
Let me show you how to make that happen.
I can coach your for the entire year.
Go here to get all the details:
I received this as an email forward and thought it had a very good message to share.
I think many of us forget to treasure the moments we have each day. I always stop and smell the flowers, but often lose many other hours spent doing mundane tasks. If you view each day as a precious gift and spend every minute doing what you love and with those you love, you will truly have a Rich Life.
I hope you enjoy your prize today,
Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use.However,this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.
The first set of rules would be:
Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
You may only spend it.
Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.
The second set of rules:
The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, Its over,the game is over! It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.What would you personally do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted right?
Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?
Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?
You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?
ACTUALLY This GAME is REALITY!
Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank.
We just can’t seem to see it.
The MAGICAL BANK is TIME!
Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life,
and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.
What we haven’t lived up that day is forever lost.
Yesterday is forever gone.
Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time….
SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?
Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.
Think about that, and always think of this:Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.
So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life!
Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.
