probably seen or heard of before, others are new, even to me ... ;o)
In Part 1 (Money Saving Tips), the author talks about all kinds of ways that you can save money. I'd like to
share some excerpts from each section with you here now, give you an idea of what you will be missing out on, if
you don't check this one out.
"19. Credit Card Interest - If you have credit cards and your credit is in good standing, call your credit card
company, and ask for your interest to be lowered. It is truly that simple. Unfortunately, most people do not even
realize this is an option so they never make the call. Just tell the representative that you want a better rate on
your credit card and they will take care of your request."
"99. Pocket Change - Keep a jar or some type of container handy and each time you come home, drop in your
change. Every time you break a bill, put the change in your container. You will be amazed how quickly your money
Part 2 (Success Tips):
"109. Focus on Something you Like - To increase your chance of succeeding, you should concentrate your efforts
on something you enjoy. When you start out, make a list of everything you find interesting. Then in a second
column, write down the skills you have in relation to each of those items. This will help you narrow choices down
based on interest and skill, which gets you started in the right direction for success."
"134. Be Thankful - You need to be thankful for not only your accomplishments but also your failures. Having a
grateful attitude is important. It will help you stay humble, which in turn, will help you continue striving for
the ultimate in success."
"139. Make the Best of Each Day - Try to live every day as though it were your last. Make the most of every day
and accomplish something. Even if it is something small, every baby step adds up to a huge success in the end.
Part 3 (Health & Fitness Tips):
"211. Laugh it Off - The medical field has proven that laughter actually works with your body toward good
health. Have you ever heard the expression, 'Laughter is the best medicine'? The truth is, when you laugh, several
positive things happen. Your muscles relax; stress hormone production is reduced; your forget about the pain; your
body's immune system is improved; high-blood pressure is lowered; the heart and lungs are strengthened; and
overall, you feel better!"
"220. Meditate - Find some time away from noise and distractions for you. Meditation can come in many forms.
Whatever way you meditate, ensure that you are in a quiet place with soft lighting, sit with good posture and in a
comfortable position, practice slow, rhythmic breathing, and concentrate on something calm and relaxing. Meditation
is a great stress reducer, which is vital for good health."
"227. Attitude - A negative attitude can have a negative impact on your health as a positive attitude can affect
your health in a positive manner. Living well has a direct correlation with a positive outlook. Keep smiling and
trying to find the good in life, even when things are tough."
