If you are clear about what you want, you need to start telling other people about your aspirations. When you do this, you will find that others will conspire to help make your dream a reality.

I've personally had countless experiences of people going out of their way to help me once I had let them know what I wanted.

3. Expect to receive what you want.

It is also very important that you start to developrepparttar mindset where you just expect to get everything you ask for. When you set your brain a task or embed an expectation, it will naturally seek a favourable resolution.

To extend our restaurant example, once you've placed your order you createrepparttar 141860 expectation within your mind that you will get exactly what you want. Ifrepparttar 141861 waiter didn't bringrepparttar 141862 meal you ordered, you'd naturally send it back and wait till they brought you what you asked for. Why not put this concept into practice inrepparttar 141863 other areas of your life? You'll be pleasantly surprised byrepparttar 141864 results!

Success always has a price!

Once you have decided upon what you want, asked for it and establishedrepparttar 141865 expectation of receiving it,repparttar 141866 only thing left for you to do is payrepparttar 141867 price. Despite what many self-help gurus might have you believe, success will not come to you without sacrifice. Be very aware of what you are prepared to 'pay' in order to get what you want.

After all that, if your life still isn't serving yourepparttar 141868 banquet that you want and deserve, just keep sending it back torepparttar 141869 kitchen until it does!

What Were The Good Ole Days Good For?

Written by Sonny Julus

Continued from page 1

* Divorce was not as widespread

The odds of staying married for a long time then were much greater than it is now. Couples seemed to work out their problems much better in those days. Today it is not as shameful to get a divorce. I do not remember hearingrepparttar phrase "single Mom" back then. If you did it was most likely becauserepparttar 141859 husband was deceased thenrepparttar 141860 mother being divorced.

* Most people seemed to be more polite and courteous

One thing that was drilled in my head back then was to say "thank you" whenever someone either gave you something or paid you a compliment. And I had better not forget to say it, either.Men were expected to open doors forrepparttar 141861 "opposite sex". Even to pull outrepparttar 141862 chair atrepparttar 141863 table and push it back after she was seated was alsorepparttar 141864 normal thing to do. I hate to say it but I do not see much of that practice happening as much today as back then, do you ladies? These are just a few things that I remember in those early years that maderepparttar 141865 "good ole days good"

Now I admit those times were tough, and we did not have allrepparttar 141866 modern conveniences that we have today. No TV in those early days, no computers, videos, cell phones, dial up phones (you calledrepparttar 141867 operator and she rang repparttar 141868 number for you) Andrepparttar 141869 phone number was usually a short one. The phone number at our florist shop is one that I will never forget as long as I live, it was "5" Yes, a simple number "5" Can you believe that?

My children today cannot believe thatrepparttar 141870 "big thing" for our family to do then was to sit inrepparttar 141871 living room at night and listen torepparttar 141872 radio. Yes,repparttar 141873 R-A-D-I-O. (you seniors remember that, don't you) And we listened to our favorite programs. "Fibber McGee & Mollie" "The Lone Ranger" "The Shadow Knows" "The Great Gildersleeve", "Amos & Andy", "Abbott & Costello", and many others. Those arerepparttar 141874 ones I remember most.

The radio we had then was a beautiful floor model. It stood about 31/2 feet tall and about 20 inches wide with large speakers in front. When we got our first TV it was mind-boggling. We could not believe it. There were pictures that talked, WOW!

Now listen! I am not sure I want to return to those days even though there were many pleasurable moments to remember. Life did seem to be simpler and I wish we could restore some of those same conditions and moments today that we experienced then. Don't you?
