Issue 398 - On The 9th Day Of Christmas

I hope this Tuesday finds you well.

It's the first Tuesday in 2007, so Happy New Year to you and yours.
I guess everyone and his dog are writing about New Year Resolutions at this time of year.
As a result, my contrary nature kicks in, and I get the urge *not* talk about it, but since this newsletter has always focused on self improvement, goal achievement and wealth creation, it would be a bit remiss if I didn't.
We'll see how it goes...

By the way, the sharp witted reader, (and of course by that I mean you!) will note that I don't normally send a Tuesday newsletter.
Well I took the Christmas holiday off, and had a bucket load of ideas come to me.
I couldn't be arsed to wait another week, so I thought I'd write today.

My ideas for titles include -

'Move Your Bloomin' Arse!'
'Ponder the Percentage Postulation'.
'Article Writing IS Rocket Science After All!'
'Traffic Generation Can be Fun!'
'On The 9th Day Of Christmas!'

So all of that is to come, plus Issue 400 is only 2 weeks away, and I have something lined up for that.
Ok, let's crack on with today's waffle, called 'On The 9th Day Of Christmas'...

According to THAT song, on the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, 9 ladies dancing.
Not forgettting the 8 maids a milking, 7 swans a-swimming, 6 geese a-laying, 5 gold rings, 4 calling birds, 3 french hens, 2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.

In fact, the correct lyric is that on the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a note saying 'Right, that's it! Christmas over, everything back to normal!'

It gets me every year.
As much as seeing Christmas fare in the shops in sodding September, by now you won't see any sign of Christmas in the shops.
In such a commercialised world, how is it that the last fews days of Christams are completely ignored, as if they don't exist?
For the shops to create a 3 month hype to Christmas, and then cut it short just seems ludicrous to me.

Can anybody please point out if I'm missing something here!
In fact on Sunday, New Year's Eve, I was in a shop and saw a big display of Easter Eggs.
I can tell you, I was THIS close to kicking the whole thing down, but I was stopped by the thought of some poor little 16 year old who didn't go to school every day, and was turned down by McDonald's, who had to create the display, and would no doubt have to rebuild it on New Year's Day if I booted it down.

Hmm, I can feel another letter to Tesco's coming on...

Ok, that's just about it to start the year, so here's a quickie about New Year Resolutions.

If you're going to make New Year Resolutions with your tongue in cheek, aiming fully to fail with them, please don't.
It's what most people do, and although it is food for a quick laugh, it is actually a slap in the face of one of the most simple and effective ways of creating the life you always wanted.

We follow the same goal achievement formula every day many many times, it's just that most of us don't realise it.
I don't have to tell you it's huge passion of mine to get people to flick the switch in their brain, to fully realise what they can do with their lives, and I don't like to see people acknowledge the method and then poo-poo it in the same breath.

Let me know what you think.

I wrote my book, 'Transform Your Life in 21 Days!' back in 2003.
It was a gathering of all the theories and ideas I have used in my time to achieve things I look back on with great pride.
Actually the book itself is one of them, because as I read in now in 2007, I consider it as valid today as it was in 2003 - no update required!

I'm giving it a push this year, so if you fancy taking a peek to see what I keep wittering on about, go to:

Ok, that's it for this week - don't tell me your New Year Resolutions, but DO tell me what your plans are for this year, I may be able to help you more than you know...
