A Dog’s Purpose…Here’s the surprising answer of a 6 year old child. “Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.

Have you ever met those “successful” people, who always seem to have
everything work their way? It’s like they have a bag of tricks, the Midas touch
or some special magic that works overtime they want it to. They are so
well-liked by others and have the ability to turn friendships into very
meaningful relationships, difficult client into profitable partnership,
customers into closed deals, jobs into promotions, and so on.

Brendon Burchard, author of “The Charge,” believes there are three kinds of life: caged, comfortable or charged. Depending on where we are along this spectrum of our lives, we’re going to have a different quality of life. If we’re on one side of the spectrum, we’re often miserable and suffering, struggling and upset all the time. Whereas, if we’re on the other side, we’re fully engaged, energized and enthusiastic. Knowing where we are on this spectrum can completely change our lives, because we can make a decision about what type of life we want to live.

There are certain people you love who do something else for your life; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years.
But there’s still one more tier in all of this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually.
Each individual must identify the type of happiness most important to him as well as the capacity of his own mental constitution to experience happiness. Religion reduces these variables by dictating a simple path to happiness. It thereby spares the masses of their individual neuroses.
Ever dreamed about being the person many look up to? – the one that everyone wants to talk with, whether for advice or just because they feel comfortable around you. Want to become a more effective leader, a better friend or more connected lover?
Language is a miracle of the natural world because it allows us to exchange an unlimited number of ideas using a finite set of mental tools. Those mental tools comprise a large lexicon of memorized words and a powerful mental grammar that can combine them.
We think reality is what we can explain from the limited instruments of our senses. But reality is, of course, far beyond that. We all have access to the infinite consciousness, but our understanding of it is hampered by our 5 senses, keeping us trapped on a limited plane.
“A reliable way to make people believe in falsehoods is through frequent repetition, because familiarity is not easily distinguished from truth”
Tony Robbins, author of Unlimited Power, Unleash the Power Within, and Awaken the Giant Within, postulates that there are six needs that drive us, as humans, to do the things that we do. 1.
