Some Gave a Little, But He Gave It All - Today's Wisdom

“Unconsciously we all have a standard by which we measure other men, and if we examine closely we find that this standard is a very simple one, and is this: we admire them, we envy them, for great qualities we ourselves lack. Hero worship consists in just that. Our heroes are men who do things which we recognize, with regret, and sometimes with a secret shame, that we cannot do. We find not much in ourselves to admire, we are always privately wanting to be like somebody else. If everybody was satisfied with himself, there would be no heroes.” ― Mark Twain
 
I will be brief today (get back up off the floor and into your chair ;^).  I will spend tomorrow evening trying to perform, host and coordinate a concert in an honorable manner that goes to the benefit of people who are just like you and me, but have just done something greater than we have possibly. And that is to give of yourself in the most significant way... in the sacrifice of body and mind, and some in the gift of their life. What an honor for all of us performing at and attending the "Concert For Local Wounded Heroes" at the Franklin Theatre it will be. I have been honored to be allowed to be a part of this effort to give back. Many of you reading this have given back too. Some by passing on the other offerings I wrote by forwarding the email, some of you writing me back and telling me your thoughts (keeps me going, thanks) and many of you by gifting some tickets that have already been given to Veterans who were happy, proud and excited to attend the concert and be a part of helping other great American Heroes. I just wanted to say, "Thank You!"
 
As you go through today and all the "problems and challenges" of your busy work day. Pause and send up and out some positive thoughts to others and remember just how lucky and blessed you are. If you are having some problems, maybe the short offering below from one of my Heroes, Lou Tice, will help you. I hope it does and I hope that you will lift yourself up and look around you and remember that if we were all sitting in a circle with our troubles piled in front of us to potentially trade with someone else, we would probably look around and quickly pull our pile back to ourselves.
 
I hope you will consider attending the concert if you can, or it's not too late to add your name to the ones that have gifted some tickets to another deserving Veteran. Visit JCSConcert.com http://jcsconcert.com/ and let me know you want to help and I will make it happen. To all of you who read these little "Today's Wisdoms" I send out, thank you, and thanks for letting me promote this event in the last few. It's a little different than my usual offerings of "positivity" (or is it?!?).
 
There's a line in a song I will sing tomorrow night that says, "Some gave a little... But he gave it all."  My musical offering today was sent to me by Don Ross, prophetically as I try to transform myself back into my past musical alter ego, "Phil Delta" and endeavor to raise money to support heroes. I've gained a lot of respect for "Delta" Airlines who honors so those "Who Gave It All" Click here ---> http://www.youtube.com/embed/c_VGxfmDmEo  Thanks Don, Great timing!

Happiness is a Choice

 

What would it take to make you happy? Think about your answer for a moment, because we have reasons to be happy every day, even if the world around us seems to have come unglued.

Some of you think that if you only had this or that particular thing you would be happy. Others believe that if you were only in love with someone wonderful, who loved you back, then you would be happy. And there are probably still others who believe that if God would work a miracle and cure you or someone you love of an illness, that would make you happy.

But here is the thing: Happiness is a choice you make, not something that does or doesn't happen to you.  You can choose to be happy right now, no matter what you have or don't have.

The first step is gratitude.  If you develop and heighten your powers of appreciation by focusing on the beauty in your life instead of the imperfections, you will be halfway there. Take a moment. You will see an abundance of beauty in your life, regardless of your surroundings or circumstances, if you will only look for it. You will be adopting the "attitude of gratitude."

Once you can see it - appreciate it!  Not just intellectually - let it give you real joy. You see, the time to be happy is now, the place to be happy is here, and the reasons to be happy are all around us.

So what are you waiting for? Decide for yourself. Choose to be happy and see how it affects everything else you think, see and do!

 
Much Obliged, Phil
Make it an exceptional day... It is yours to think, see, believe and make happen!

"We, as human beings, behave and act not in accordance with the truth as the truth might really be, but we behave and act in accordance with the truth as we think it to be or believe it to be." Lou Tice
