Failure is only postponed success as long as courage coaches ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.
-- Herbert Kaufman

If had to select one quality, one personal characteristic, that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, 'Here comes number seventy-one!'
-- Richard M. DeVos




Just Five Minutes Longer
A John Harricharan Article

The story has been told and retold countless times about the battle of Waterloo. Poems have been written and songs have been composed detailing every conceivable aspect about it. The English tell it one way and the French share it from a slightly different point of view.

History and legend has it that after Napoleon Bonaparte's army was defeated and the Duke of Wellington prevailed over the French, Napoleon was taken away and imprisoned. One day a group of newspaper reporters came to visit. They had obtained permission to hold an interview with the famous French general, Napoleon Bonaparte.

Even though Napoleon was in prison, he carried himself with dignity and looked with piercing eyes at the group of reporters gathered there before him. Questions were asked and answers given. The reporters wrote every word down. This would, indeed, be good reading. They would boast to their children and grandchildren how they stood before the great general on that long ago day.

Suddenly, from the back of the room, a voice, somewhat more gentle than the others was heard above the din. "Mon general," the reporter said, "Tell me why the English won at Waterloo. Did they have a superior army?"

"No!" replied Napoleon.

"Well, did they have better weapons?" asked another reporter.

"No!" was the answer again.

Then the first reporter asked again, "Why then, Mr. General, did the English win?"

Napoleon's eyes slowly swept across the room. The silence was so deep that it was almost deafening. You could have heard the proverbial pin drop. Then he replied, "The English fought five minutes longer."

From the mouth of the great general himself came the answer, "The English fought five minutes longer". Many times, five minutes longer is all that it takes. Times have changed from the days of the Emperor Napoleon. But many things still remain the same.

Sometimes victory is just a few minutes away. Yes, I know, we all go through terrible times. In today's world many of us are faced with crisis after crisis. For most, there is never enough money, no jobs, poor relationships, ill health and the list could go on and on. Of course, there are good times, too, but the hard times usually block our vision of the good times.

When things get really bad, we turn this way and that looking for some help or at least some hope to keep on keeping on. Anything will do--a kind word from a friend, a paragraph from a good book, a stray piece of music from the radio, even a Hollywood movie.

Some people will be there for you, others will turn and run from you, fearing for their own well-being. Still others may throw you a crumb of money, or food and hope you won't ask for more. Be grateful. They do as they see fit to do at the moment. Your job is to just keep on keeping on.

When you are down in the arena and the dust is in your mouth and you can hear the screaming of the crowd, remember, "The English fought five minutes longer." Sometimes it's so bad that one day at a time is too long. So go one hour at a time. And if that's too long, then how about five minutes at a time?

Success is sometimes just yards or minutes away. There are times when the last few yards may seem like miles and the last few minutes may appear to be hours. But if you keep on keeping on, if you do not let hope die, if you have faith in the goodness of the universe and the Force that created us, you will win in the end.

Why did Napoleon lose to the English at the battle of Waterloo? The English simply fought five minutes longer.




There are no secrets to success: Don't waste time looking for them. Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty to those for whom you work, and persistence.
-- Colin Powell

A jug fills drop by drop.
-- Buddha


POEM: "The Rain Clouds"


The Rain Clouds
A John Harricharan Poem

At first they seemed so bright
Reflecting all the light,
But suddenly they hid the sun
Which ceased to shine
While all the time
Their mysteries had begun.

Then next they seemed so large
Like some infernal barge
A-sitting there and waiting still
Their deed to do
With fury true
A mission to fulfill.

Now comes a roaring sound
The lightning strikes the ground
And earth and sky just wait to see.
They burst their seams
About their reams
And rain falls fast and free.

The sun shines once again
No sign of all this rain
But good has come from darkness yet,
For flowers bloom
And lovers swoon
Though people will forget.




The courage to persist: In 1894, the rhetoric teacher at Harrow in England wrote on a sixteen-year-old's report card, "A conspicuous lack of success."
Winston Chruchill persited.


GUEST ARTICLE: "Spiritual Health"


Spiritual Health
By Larry Trivieri, Jr.

Spiritual health, while often overlooked, is the ultimate goal of holistic medicine, and leads to a heightened awareness of the Divine Spirit referred to by all religions. By coming to know and attuning yourself to Spirit's guidance in all areas of your daily life, you will reduce your feelings of fear, and develop a greater capacity for loving yourself and others unconditionally. You will also begin to reconnect to your special talents and gifts and use them to fulfill your life's purpose."

In addition to being consciously aware of the role Spirit plays in your life, being spiritually healthy also means being intimately connected to your family, friends, and community. It is through our committed relationships that we find the greatest opportunities for spiritual growth and for learning how to receive and impart unconditional love.

The observance of spiritual and religious traditions and working with spiritual counselors and support groups are common methods of creating spiritual and social health. A variety of self-care approaches, including prayer, meditation, gratitude, and spending time within nature, can further deepen your awareness of yourself as a spiritual, socially-connected being.

Prayer is the most common form of spiritual practice performed by most human beings, and the majority of people who pray report a greater sense of well-being than those who don't. There are many effective ways to pray. Many people find great benefit using the prayers from their religious upbringing. Others make prayer a time of personal conversation with God, stating their needs or concerns and asking for divine intervention. Choose the form of prayer that feels most comfortable for you, then establish a regular routine of praying daily.

Meditation has been scientifically researched and proven to have many physical benefits, including stress-relief, improved immune and cardiovascular function, relaxation, and decreased pain. The regular practice of meditation can also lead to new insights about life issues, heightened creativity, inspiration, greater compassion for others, and a greater connection to one's own inner guidance. There are a wide variety of meditative techniques to choose from and, as with prayer, choosing the one that you are most comfortable with will provide the greatest benefit.

Gratitude. Dr. Robert Anderson describes gratitude as the Great Attitude. "Gratitude produces feelings of joy and self-acceptance, and is an attitude that anyone can choose to have, just as we can choose to see the glass half full or half empty" Dr. Anderson says. "Being grateful for what you have, instead of worrying about what you lack, enables you to let go of negative thoughts and attitudes more easily. This can be difficult at times, especially if you are feeling a great deal of fear or anger, but if you make the effort to release these painful emotions and choose to be grateful instead, positive benefits can be achieved."

One method of cultivating feelings of gratitude is keeping a gratitude journal, simply recording all the things you have to be grateful for. Or you can close your eyes before bed and mentally review your day, taking an inventory of all the things that happened for which you feel grateful and silently giving thanks for them.

Spending time in nature. The most visible manifestation of Spirit is nature, where we most fully encounter and interact with life's primal energies in the forms of earth, water, fire, and air.

Taking a walk in a park or hiking through the woods are easy and practical ways of reconnecting with nature and the earth, as are gardening, bike riding in the country, and camping and boating trips. By making it a habit to spend regular amounts of time outdoors within a natural setting, you enable yourself to better appreciate the rhythms of life, including your own.

Spending time near the water can also be a healthy experience, due to water's higher concentration of negative ions, which can contribute to feelings of well-being. Soaking in a mineral hot spring can provide therapeutic benefits for a variety of ailments, as well.

Exposure to fire around a campground or before a fireplace can also have health benefits. According to yogic tradition, fire is said to cleanse the bioenergy field (human aura) of negative energies. Fire is also an important component of the vision quests undertaken by Native Americans to connect with the Great Spirit and discover their life purpose.

Of all nature's elements, perhaps the closest expression of Spirit is the air. Clean, fresh air is essential to health on all levels, and practicing conscious breathing at various times throughout the day can be a potent self-care method for restoring energy and making you more aware of the power of Spirit as it flows through you.

I've always believed that there's a solution hidden in every problem. But to get to that solution, you need to use the correct tools. So I've created a problem-solving "toolbox" containing the proper tools to help you face, as well as fix, your current difficulty.

*What kind of tools do I mean? I mean the practical, inspirational and motivational tools you need to get the job done.
*You'll find motivational articles and audio files.
*There are inspirational tools like poetry, free ebooks and quotations.
*There are helpful links, book reviews and services.

And what's more, I've crammed this "toolbox" full of every kind of problem-solving tool imaginable. . . and I'll constantly be adding more helpful, new information every month, so you will never run out of new tools to help you do the job.

Yes, I know there are those times when the world seems to crowd in on us; and I know how it feels when it appears that nothing we do or say could get us out of our current predicament. It doesn't matter what the problems are. When we encounter them, be they money, health or relationships, they sometimes appear much too formidable. But there IS a way out.

And that's the reason for this special, private membership site.
