To Attract Customers to a Business or Visitors to a Home

Make a fine powder out of some basil leaves and sprinkle them around the main entrance to the home or place of business. It is believed that only good and friendly people will enter, since it supposedly repels those who intend harm toward the workers of a business or the occupants of a home.

Daily Motivator for December 4th – Delicious fulfillment

Delicious fulfillment

You can make something of this day, so do it now. You can transform challenge  into achievement, so go ahead and make it happen.

Opportunity is not some free ride that is granted to just a lucky few.  Opportunity is always there, available to anyone who is willing to work for it.

Transforming opportunity into achievement is not easy, and that is in fact  the whole point. It is in the effort that the value of achievement is created.

You can make that effort, this hour, this day, this year, and for as long as  you choose to make it. The more real, meaningful effort you’re willing to give,  the more your life and your world will be filled with achievement and value.

You can make something of this life, of this challenge, of this opportunity,  so do. Be willing, get busy, stay on it, and get yourself an increasing dose of  delicious fulfillment.

Give your very best, and get the very best of life in return. Make something  of it all, and make it all into something truly meaningful and great.

— Ralph Marston

Daily Motivator for Oct. 28 – The best of now

The best of now

Now is the time to make a difference. Now is the moment to do what you know  you must do.

Now is when you can transform possibility into reality. Now is when you can  bring your dreams to life.

Is there a problem that’s been frustrating you? Now is when you can take  real, focused action to work your way through it.

Sure, there are plenty of ways to waste this day. But you now have the chance  to choose to make good and valuable use of it.

Now is an opportunity to create value. And that opportunity cannot be delayed  until later.

Now is yours to use for whatever rich and fulfilling purpose you can imagine.  Stand up, step forward, and get busy making the very best of now.

— Ralph Marston

9. It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end-to-end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them.

Daily Motivator for July 23 – Abundance of opportunity

Abundance of opportunity

There is no shortage of opportunity. The more you make use of the  opportunities, the more opportunities you make.

Opportunity does not get used up, no matter how many people make use of it.  When opportunity is followed and fulfilled, it expands.

Problems create opportunities. And then the solutions to those problems  create even more opportunities.

A meaningful, valuable opportunity demands much of you. When you give your  effort, time and commitment to the opportunity, it becomes even more valuable  and meaningful.

Don’t be envious or resentful when others create great achievements from the  opportunities. Those achievements bring increased opportunities with them.

Move forward with the best opportunities. And as you do, you’ll create even  better ones.

The Daily Chinese Horoscopes for June 7th

Rabbit

You will definitely be the social hub of family, friends and loved ones right now, and just about all the news is good. The phone will be ringing off the hook with this person from that place talking about the wonderful news about so and so over there … spread the joy. This is one time where gossiping is definitely a good thing.

Dragon

Your intuition could lead you to wonderful bargain opportunities today, especially where it comes to antiques and investments. You may be considering investing in some changes to your home. Renovations that you start now may involve tearing down the old to make way for the new.

Snake

You have strong leadership skills right now and people are eager to hear what you have to say. Mostly you’ll be talking about tearing down old structures. Make sure you have a plan to replace them with something new! You could be looking at making financial adjustments so you can better help others.

Horse

All the information your subconscious has been mulling about for the past while suddenly bubbles up to the surface and a wellspring of creativity is yours to tap. You may be making some extra money with a dynamic new home-based business involving art or entertainment.

Sheep

Friends and companions are a big feature of the day. If you are hosting a party or gathering, make sure that there are toys, snacks, and treats for little ones, and a place for them to nap. Others may bring along their kids without notifying you.

Monkey

You’ll be getting some excellent career news this week, as you find yourself attractive and interesting to the authority figures who are important to your well-being. There are certainly challenges, you may find your personal time is limited, but the potential rewards are great.

Rooster

You could be considering buying a new car or investing in a new and unusual form of transportation today. If you are looking for a new physical activity or exercise, bicycle riding could be the dual-purpose hobby you need. It both gets you places and gets you fitter.

Dog

There is a wonderful and unusual opportunity for you to radically transform your finances and your attitude towards the way you make money. Someone will talk about making your money work for you instead of simply working to make money. Listen carefully to their advice!

Pig

If you and your significant other are not seeing eye to eye today, it may not be the best time to bring up your vacation plans, even if that makes for a welcome change of subject. If you want to surprise your partner with a spontaneous trip, make it to some place that they have always wanted to go.

Rat

Your workplace will be something of a circus today. Someone’s workplace romance has burst out into the open and that has the office gossips all a twitter. If you are not involved, try to avoid the rumour mill. Loose lips can sink friendships.

Ox

You have an opportunity to make a special new friend. You will be drawn to unusual people and could make strange or interesting new relationships. You may find that your new companion has some strange ideas about the world and your place in it.

Tiger

A major opportunity to improve your home becomes apparent today. You’ll be considering new home improvements, renovations and upgrades. What you may not realize at first is that some things have to be torn down before they can be rebuilt. It’s a big job.

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

So you missed an opportunity! And they say that opportunity knocks only once – but, only if you believe it! Opportunity has been known to pound on the door and go unnoticed, and it has been known to whisper and be heard. It is all according to how hard we require opportunity to knock before we recognize it.

Our awareness of opportunity will reveal to us how many times it presents itself; so subtle, it may not be recognized by the casual eye. And usually it seems to be completely unprofitable to us personally. More often than not it is service to others without thought of return. It is humility, a willingness to accept the most humble beginnings. It is joy in finding communication with others and finding a kinship with them.

Have you heard of an opportunity fund? Some call it saving for a rainy day. Rainy days can be lovely, too. A rainy day can be an opportunity to get things done. But an opportunity can be any day, rain or shine.

Do you often have the opportunity to speak to your neighbor? It seems to happen too infrequently these days.

The most fun we can have comes when we’ve the opportunity to squelch an ugly rumor. You know, “curst be the tongue whence slanderous rumor, withering friendship’s faith….” Sometimes a little friendship does wither, but if it really amounts to anything it will survive.

What a splendid opportunity to sit quietly and mentally forgive with such depth and joy as to start life anew. There is no greater blessing, no greater opportunity fund.

American editor A.E. Dunning writes, “Great opportunity come to all, but many do not know they have met them. The only preparation to take advantage of them, is simple fidelity to what each day brings.”

A missed opportunity may well be another opportunity to prepare for a bigger and better one!
