During my last talk at the 7th HR & Training Congress in Manila, I was honored to have a few great international speakers watching and listening to me. At the end of the talk, I was obviously thrilled to hear extremely positive feedback from all of them, but the highlight was a note and two books that Pido Aguilar had left for me before he went backstage to get ready for his own talk.
The feedback note said: “Energetic, poised, infectious, life-related!” And it had three ticks under ‘strongly agree’ for Relevant, Effective and Fun. The two books he had left for me were his own: “The 7 Heartsets of True Abundance”, and “Starting Today!” And each had inspiring and personalized messages he had written for me! I was deeply touched by this beautiful act of kindness and encouragement.
Both the books are extremely inspiring and totally dinchack!. “Starting Today!” is a collection of 1001 affirmations that ‘bless your life, touch your heart and nurture your soul’. I often pick it up, open it randomly in the middle to ‘see what’s my affirmation for today’ and each one is usually more inspiring than the other e.g. Starting Today…
- I improve myself; I improve my work.
- I assume less; I presume less.
- I rise every morning with gratitude; I retire every night with gratitude.
- I take nothing personally.
- I allow nothing and no one to block my dreams.
- I keep the past in the past.
- If I need an increase in income, I increase my giving.
- I grow my money best by adding value to other people’s lives.
- I know that now is the time. Now is my time.
Many thanks, Pido! ‘May everything in your life get better, starting today’ to use your words!
