Please sign this petition

OK, I realise that firstly not everyone who reads this is British and secondly those who are and follow English football are not fans of West Ham....well, I'm not a fan of WHU either, but this is a very worthwhile petition.

For those who may not know, Bobby Moore was a great English footballer and captain of the England team which won the World Cup in 1966. Tragically, while still only 51, Bobby died of cancer in February 1993.

A cancer research fund was set up in his name, and now with West Ham having just lost their shirt sponsor, they are looking for another. While they won't directly benefit from sponsoring The Bobby Moore Cancer Fund, they will undoubtedly sell far more replica shirts, pictured here:

So please click on the petition link above and join the 7,207 who've so far signed.

Andy Murray - Gracious in Defeat

Just finished watching an imperious Swiss superstar, Roger Federer, give Andy Murray, precocious, new, British tennis sensation, a lesson in how to win a Grand Slam Tennis Final.

Not to put it too mildly, Fedex was awesome. I doubt anyone could have lived with him, as he not only played his best at what he does superbly, he's also learned to come into the net, something he has always been quite reluctant to do.

But Scotsman Murray, while showing very little of the verve and panache with which he overcame world number one, Rafael Nadal, in the semi-final, did show a new and very important trait. In the post match, on court, TV interview, he was very gracious in defeat, acknowledged the Swiss's mastery of the game and his overwhelming superiority in the final. He also told the appreciative (and of course, noisy) New York crowd, that the Arthur Ashe Center Court was still his favorite place to be!

He will be back.

I've no doubt young Andy learned a huge amount from his first Grand Slam Final, but I think there are also lessons here for anyone, particularly those of us in business.

We're all going to have a good days and our bad. Some days it seems like everything we touch turns to gold, other days everything seems to crumble to dust. The important point is to never stop learning why. Can we analyse what is the difference between these two very different days?

You know what? I wonder if it's not nearly always down to our own attitude. We've all heard of the saying "he got out of the wrong side of the bed", perhaps to describe soneone "in a mood". Maybe that's better understood by describing someone whose normally positive attitude has deserted them.

In the "Science of Getting Rich", author Wallace Wattles, writing mind you, 98 years ago, stated very accurately, that if we always maintain a positive attitude, money will flow to us as if from an open tap. Banish forever the negative thoughts and attitudes which inhibit our potential for personal and financial success. Click on my above link and get a FREE copy of Wattles's amazing book, now in eBook format. I really believe it's a click you will never regret. But more.....

Bob Proctor and Jack Canfield's collaboration (with Rev Michael Beckwith) on the incredible movie, "The Secret", based on Wattles's nearly 100 year old book, have collaborated again, with The SGR Program, taking the Law of Attraction from "The Secret" a whole stage further. You can do no better than clicking on the SGR Progam link, even if it's only to discover their fantastic Affiliate Program. But I suspect that many of you will indeed be tempted by their amazing SGR Program Home Study Course.

I know I was!

Afloat in a Sea of Abundance

I thought this was a brilliant article, and as I have the permission of the author, Rebecca Fine, to reproduce here, I wanted to share with all readers of the blog and especially the new members of the Zephyr's Musings community at My Blog Log.

Afloat in A Sea of Abundance

By Rebecca Fine
In the days of the mighty sailing ships, when brave souls voyaged into the unknown, dependent on the winds and their as-yet incomplete knowledge of geography and navigation, one of the greatest and most dangerous challenges was to traverse the area known as "the doldrums."
Extending about 30 degrees on either side of the equator, the doldrums are subject to days, weeks, even months of no wind at all. After a long and difficult crossing from Europe to South America, lying becalmed in the doldrums — with no land in sight and with the ship's supply of fresh water dwindling — was a terrible and life-threatening situation.
But history and legend offer us some fascinating insights into the power of our own thinking and belief. Back then no one had yet figured out how to determine longitude, although latitude was easily calculated. So if you could not see recognizable land, you could only know in what band of latitude you currently were. Exactly where you were in that ring around the earth was, at that time, unknowable.
And so it happened that at times a ship would fetch up off the coast of South America, out of sight of shore, fresh water supplies exhausted and death knocking at the door. Then, with what must have been the sweetest sound those sailors could ever have hoped for, the lookout would suddenly call out that a ship was approaching in the distance.
Once the ship was within hailing distance, the cry went up: "Water! Give us water!"
And the reply would come back, "Lower your buckets over the side."
You see, although the sailors didn't know it, they were afloat in a virtual river of drinkable and life-sustaining water flowing from the mouth of the powerful Amazon River, which carries nearly 20 percent of all the earth's runoff water into the sea with such force that the fresh (or brackish but safe) water flows as far as 100 miles out into the Atlantic.
The sailors, dying of thirst, only THOUGHT they were experiencing lack. The REALITY was that they were afloat in a literal sea of abundance. Exactly what they needed was within their reach the whole time, but the APPEARANCE of scarcity and their BELIEF in that appearance threatened to overpower them.
They could have died — and many certainly did — believing in lack while surrounded by abundance.
In his amazing 1910 forgotten classic, The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace Wattles writes:
"I have said that people get rich by doing things in a certain way, and in order to do so, people must become able to think in a certain way.
"A person’s way of doing things is the direct result of the way he thinks about things.
"To do things in the way you want to do them, you will have to acquire the ability to think the way you want to think. This is the first step toward getting rich.
"And to think what you want to think is to think TRUTH, regardless of appearances.
A couple of months ago, my friend TERESA ROMAIN of Access Abundance [ ] wrote in my ezine, The Certain Way, about how Galileo changed the world by looking at things from a new perspective. By dropping the prevailing attitude that the sun revolved around the earth, he was able to see that the opposite was, in fact, the truth.
The key to finding the truth, she noted, was choosing to cast off the old notion and look at the situation anew, through a new lens. Teresa wrote:
"The path that lies before you is one of unlimited abundance. And it begins by SEEING the abundance available all around you.
"As you begin to experience life through the new lens of abundance, you'll find that many of the problems you face today will simply disappear. As for the ones that remain, your relationship to them will have changed profoundly, empowering you to take actions that are congruent with and support abundance."
What old beliefs, what old ways of looking, seeing, and perceiving do YOU need to cast off right now, my friend? If you find yourself "in the doldrums," how can you take a fresh look today and begin to see the abundance that surrounds YOU so that you are empowered — not becalmed and hopeless?
The choice is always available. If you have chosen unwisely before, remember that every moment is new and the great power lies in your ability to CHOOSE AGAIN, no matter the appearances and no matter what it seems everyone else thinks or does.
Teresa says that this choice "is the path that leads, ultimately, to the fulfillment of your dreams." Mr. Wattles says this choice is "the first step toward getting rich."
And, bearing in mind those long-ago sailors, I would add that this choice can be the ultimate choice — for death or for life itself.
That choice, every moment, is yours. Which way do you choose — right now?
