Welcome the Fall

Today as I was walking back to the club, I was enjoying the beauty of the leafs changing it colors to “Fall colors”.
I always enjoy the process of the changing seasons and I specially enjoy the Fall which is my favourite! I love the picture perfect scene of sun light hitting the leafs…
The change of the seasons is something that I just had the chance to appreciate and enjoy by living in Canada, as in Brazil (at least where I used to leave) we have  seasons: “Supper hot” and “Not so hot” 🙂
As I reflect on that, I can’t help but thing about one of the biggest life lessons I’ve learned from Jim Rohn that is the understanding of “The Seasons of Life’. Jim Rohn’s philosophy about how life and business are like the changing seasons has helped me to endure during tough time but also to do my best to prepare for the “winters”.
I highly recommend his book “The Seasons of Life” and I will leave you here with something I typed out of a Jim Rohn’s video from Herbalife and adapted it a little by removing the parts that were more for Herbalife distributors.
Hope you enjoy and reflect on it.

“Life and business is like the changing season…

Winter  follows Fall

Spring follows Winter

Summer, Harvest…the Seasons are set, you can not change those.

But here is what you can do:

Learn how to handle the Winter, the Winters always come. All of us can become wiser than we were yesterday, wiser than we were last week, wiser than we were a month ago.

Are you too old?

What are the dreams you’ve left behind because you think:

“Oh, I am too old for that!”???

Every now and then we come across someone’s example that remind us that any and every excuse we give to our self to justify why we can’t do something is just B.S….Yeah you’ve heard me 🙂

“People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives.”

J. Michael Straczynski

Israel Klein and I at the Niagara Falls

This is something that was passed on to me my by my dearest friend and mentor Israel Klein.

I have this printed in a paper right in my desk in a way that ideally I can read it everyday.
Hope you like it, here we go…

“I am aware of my positive and negative qualities.
Day after day I shall work on my positive qualities and
I shall get rid of all the negative ones.
I shall make sure that I turn my best traits into the habits that will make me successful.
I promise myself to be strong both mentally and physically, this way nothing will upset the balance
of my spirit, body, my emotional stability and
peace of mind.
I am always friendly towards people around me.
