I’m not into forwards. I don’t like doing mass e-mails because I don’t feel like they’re personal, and I’m not terribly superstitious so I find no point in them. However, my beautiful Aunt Debbie sent my family this chain e-mail courtesy of Anthony Robins and I really liked a lot of what he had to say.
I particularly love the ones in bold, specifically number 21. Yesterday in my blessing book it talked about how when we’re confused, hurting, scared, upset, angry, etc., that we want to talk. We’ll talk to anyone about it to get some answers. However, the best answers are found from God, and within. So taking time to be alone and meddle in yourself and in God is always the best answer. I’ve been feeling like this about an array of things in my life; not really wanting to talk to anyone about my concerns and fears, and I have found that God is always the best person to confide in. He’s a great listener! 🙂 Not to mention he presents us with the best answers — and they’re definitive answers, not just advice.
This is without a doubt one of the nicest good luck forwards I have received. Hope it works for you — and me!
Lotus Touts: You have 6 minutes
There’s some mighty fine advice in these words, even if you’re not superstitious. This Lotus Touts has been sent to you for good luck from the Anthony Robbins organization. It has been sent around the world ten times so far.
Do not keep this message.
The Lotus Touts must leave your hands in 6 MINUTES. Otherwise you will get a very unpleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious, agnostic, or otherwise faith impaired.
ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
