In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
– Albert Schweitzer, philosopher, physician, musician, Nobel laureate (1875-1965)
Zero-in and focus on exactly what you want in your life.
Write down your wishes. A Harvard study shows that when you write them down, you have an 80% better chance of making them come true.
Action: Make a list of 50 things you want. 50 is a good number because you start with the easy and the obvious then, at the end, you include wild and crazy stuff just to finish the list. A widow in her fifties went to NASCAR racing school; it was on her list!
Envision your vitality.
Do you have “emotional vitality – a sense of energy and positive well-being in addition to being able to regulate emotions effectively”? Harvard study 2007: With high emotional vitality you are 19% less likely to develop heart disease.

Increase your connection to your higher self and your higher calling.

Fill the gap between wherever you are right now and a place where your heart is filled with joy, love and the desire to live your life fully.
To Your ZEST!
