Maximum Achievment by Brian Tracy

max achievment

So i have started reading this new book that was recommended to me called Maximum Achievment by Brian Tracy. Now i had never heard of Brian Tracy so did not know of his work or his fame in this area. So i took the recommendation and ordered it on Chapters, collected my book last night and today on my lunch began the journey into some more knowledge on self discovery and reaching my ‘Maximum Achievment’ .

As i am moving to Edmonton soon with my other half and i am happily finishing up the job i have worked the last two years in (like a DRONE) i might add i have been really gaining my inner power to really try and reach my maximum and not let myself be limited by my own doing or others doing for that matter, which i feel i have let myself do for the last 2 years in this job, i have squashed my intelligence, creativity and power…but NO MORE!

So i wanted to share with you some of the already inspiring words that i have gotten from this book and i am not even 20 pages in……Needless to say i am more than excited to keep reading…

Peace of mind is central to your very existence. It is the basic precondition for enjoying everything else.

I learned that if i didn’t commit to achieving my own happiness, no one else would. If my aim in life was only to make others happy, i would always be at the mercy of the feelings of others, whoever they might be.

If you achieve all kinds of things in the material world but lose your health and piece of mind, you get little or no pleasure from your other accomplishments.

How much two people, or a family, laugh together is the surest single measure of how well things are going. When a relationship is truly happy, people laugh alot when they’re together.

DIY food jar tags…

So me and mikey(boyfriend) have had an on-going battle with how exactly pasta and rice is cooked…its famous in our relationship now 😛 , so i decided to make a truce and create jar tags with exactly how to cook each, with each method being a blend of our two minds….it works quite well…

Mikey’s niece was christened this Christmas past at home in Ireland and we were fortunate enough to be home for it as mikey was baby Saibh’s(pronounced Sive) godfather. So we bought a small gift and instead of giving a card i drew out her name and bought a frame and some pink lace and DIY’d a frame name/card for her. Cards tend to get thrown out so at least this will be kept from her uncle Mikey and aunty Emma.
