IMAGINE LYRICS

Artist: John Lennon Lyrics 

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You, you may say 
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You, you may say 
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will live as one

HOW TO LIVE IN EVERY MOMENT OF THE DAY


HOW TO LIVE IN EVERY MOMENT OF THE DAY

Very Good and lovely day to you!

To make your day worthwhile
is to live and enjoy every moment of the day.

Each day brings you something new and worthy
This is the way to cure for all illness


To achieve the complete happiness and wholeness
There is a need to live in the present.


Not waiting to live in the future,
nor reliving the past.

Make use of your spiteful lives in the past,
and look forward to craft a better living in the future.

This is the wise way of long live in the present
Knowing that tomorrow will be the result of today's action

Use every moment of this to undo mistakes
and tread a new path to spiritual progress.

Remember the past is a great learning experience

and not a knot to your hurt.

Don't waste any time with worries,
because it will only bring diseases

Even if any day was not good to you,
never turn to the past
but patiently wait for a better day to come

Those who differ from this outlook will tend to lose more in the long run

We have to live the best we can ...
By making your day worthwhile and not a waste.

DO WHAT MATTERS MOST NOW (in speech)


Fellow Toastmasters, Ladies and Gentlemen.

I am honoured to be here to tell you 3 stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.
The first story is about CONNECTING THE DOTS.

I am so blessed because I inherited natural wealth talents, wild imagination and weak health. I was born underweight, at only 4 Ibs 4 ozs in 1960 and both my parents were very concerned that I would not be able to survive long. I had been frequently saddled with sickness in my early life. Today, I consider this weak health a blessing because it shapes me to be better, stronger, sweeter and not bitter. 
I was also blessed with my talent of playing chess and was spotted by my primary school teacher, who had subsequently coached me to be my school's Captain. I led my school in both school and individual event in M.P.P.P. Chess Competition under 12. 
Due to some unpleasant event, I was under performed to my school's trainer's expectation. Since then, I had stopped playing chess and pursue my other dreams.
I then learned from those kind souls and friends that I could overcome my physical weakness through my mental strength. Thereafter, I consistently spent my time, effort and money in upgrading my knowledge, skill and mindset in my early life to overcome many of my challenges during my life’s journey.
Some of my childhood's heroes such as Confucius, Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln and many others, had transformed and impacted my life significantly.
I am very grateful to them for helping me to acquire not only better health, but also much stronger mindset which helped me to overcome many adversities at my later life. I also managed to stay above poverty through education and find better way of doing thing more effectively and efficiently in order to cope well with my study while I was engaging my other part time work. 
As a result, I have cultivated good habits for example consistently enhancing my education from my early life till to date. Academic qualifications I have collected so far are like L.C.C.I intermediate Book-keeping, M.C.C. higher accounting prior to my completion of my first Bachelor of Accounting degree and many other certificates from workshops, seminars and short courses.
What is important to me is to cultivate those good habits. This had helped me in applying my knowledge, skill and strategies to grow a company from a newly set up private company to a publicly listed company and promoted as Financial Controller of the company.  I must admit that Practice does not make perfect but practice makes permanent improvement.
My second story is about my gain and loss



In 2000, after my team and I managed to turnaround the company with Knowing-doing Gap strategies and I have fulfilled all of my dreams at that time. I then lost my sense of purpose in my life coupled with my helplessness to defend the loss of my still born child. That's ultimately led me to lose my passion in my profession.
Would you agree that your beliefs determine your actions?
Knowing that I was dying inside and my spirit was literally drying up. So, I embarked to pursue my second Law degree, soul searching journey and Certified Practitioner Trainer.
I vowed if I ever got out of this mess, I will help others learn lessons that might improve their lives.  
During this time, I have unlearned what I have learned and relearned what is new to me. 
My third story is about my purposeful life


  
In 2008, I simply quit my overseas job shortly after I obtained my Permanent Resident. What at the time appeared as a bold and irresponsible decision, would soon open doors that would enable me to discover the "Missing Link" in my own life. 
That freed me to enter into one of the most creative and bold periods of my life. Guess what? I WAS venturing into wealth coaching PROGRAM and social media at my late 40 and again many were surprise, even amongst my friends.
I then discovered my larger purpose of helping people to live life in more fulfilling roles. I do by repaying back those kind souls and people who have been assisting me throughout my journey.
Life is short! 
Whatever you want to do, do it now.
Whatever you want to be, be that now.
Whatever you want to have, go for it now!
When it comes to the important things in life, don't wait until tomorrow.
Tomorrow may not come.

GUEST AUTHOR INTERVIEW WITH TRISH JENKINS


About the Author :- Trish Jenkins

Please click the link below:-



Now, onto the interview.

James : When did you begin to write?

I’ve found the spiritual value of journaling as a teenager, though that didn’t tell me if I had any real flair as a writer. From 2003-2005 I wrote a monthly “wealth creation” ezine sharing what I was learning about real estate. I started writing a “success” book when we were doing so well we no longer required jobs. I’m glad I didn’t publish because we lost everything we had to a fraud. Then I began to research and write a book on fraud warning signals, so that what happened to us wouldn’t happen to anyone else. I began working for a Corporate investigator who taught me a lot about fraud and what makes people vulnerable. He asked me specifically to write my book for women, because by the time they called him, they had no money to pay him. Most often they were ripped off through romance.
At the same time I was facing prosecution for breaching the Corporations Act, so I held off publishing until I got a penalty. That penalty turned out to be 8 months in prison. The prison experience brought out the real writer in me.

James : When did you first discover that you were a writer?

When I started receiving letters in prison from strangers who’d had my prison letters forwarded to them. That’s when I really knew the Lord was doing something with my writing. I had no internet access so I would post a letter for our family and friends to my husband, Justin. He would type it out in an email and send it to them. The letters tracked my journey through prison, how I coped, funny stories and my relationship with God during that time. Those emails went viral and the feedback I received was very encouraging. I wanted to keep a record of my experiences. I also kept a journal of things I couldn’t put in letters and my intimate moments with God. I instinctively, knew what I was writing was important and the feedback showed the Lord was using my letters to touch people.


James : How much did you write before you were published? 

Not much. I’m easily distracted and prefer talking to writing. I’ve heard real writers just have to write, they can’t help it. I need a reason to write. I find it hard to sit still and write, so I’ve learned to do it in bite sized chunks. That’s probably why the prison letters worked so well.

James : What is your favorite part of writing? 

Seeing it in print! Writing is hard work, it takes a lot of thought, so I love it when I’m “moved” to write. I get on a roll and pour it out. Then I go back and slash it down to the best words.

James : Tell us about your latest release. 

My latest release is Weapons of Cash Destruction: Protect Your Fortune from Fraud. It’s the gender neutral version of my women’s fraud book. I’ve produced 3 books in 3 years and the one most people are interested in still, is my “Treasures of Darkness: A Prison Journey.” When I first came home I put all my papers in a box and shoved it under the couch. I couldn’t even look at it without feeling shaky and ill. I was told that was a symptom of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). A year later, the Lord impressed on me that I needed to collate the letters and journal entries as a book. It was difficult and I found myself having to forgive certain issues and people all over again. Fortunately the Lord gave me the grace to work through it. Now I see the hope and courage I didn’t realize I had at the time.


James : Wow! This book sounds really good. Are you planning on writing more in the years to come? 

Yes, on leadership. There has been a journey of healing and rebuilding that I believe the Lord will have me share from. I’ve had time to reflect back on what the Lord did and will include keys to healing, self-leadership and dealing with difficult people too.

James : So far what is your worst criticism/attacks, and how have you overcome it? 

The worst attack came from my own mind. I felt ashamed of my failure and didn’t think I had the right to offer anything. Some months after I got home, the Lord impressed on me to publish my first book, “Dangerous Wealth: What Every Successful Woman Needs to Know to Avoid Being Ripped Off!” I wondered, “How can I publish a book and people not find out I’ve been in prison?” I was deeply ashamed. I had to make the decision to go public and tell them myself.

How did I do that? I knew in my heart that the Lord expected me to. I believe the only thing worse than going through an adversity, is to waste it. I was afraid, but I did it afraid anyway. Then I was invited to speak to a business group. My story and it’s lessons were appreciated. From that engagement I received more and more invitations to speak. The Lord opened the doors.

A second criticism I received was at a Christian business conference designed to encourage and release us in our calling. I had recently published my prison book “Treasures of Darkness” and was looking for guidance and encouragement. Perhaps I was looking for “man’s” approval? One of the leaders said I should stop what I was doing and burn all my books. Fortunately I had travelled enough with God down that road to recognise there was something about my story that offended him. I realised I could let him rob me of my courage or defend it. I quietly and firmly told him his “word did not witness to my spirit, but thank you anyway.” Fortunately the other leaders disagreed with him as well. I was shaken but pleased I had defended the precious, hard won gift the Lord had given me.


James : What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of

My family. In particular, helping my children heal from the damage they suffered due to my imprisonment, the length of time I was absent and the PDST I suffered afterwards. My husband and I have been careful to guide them through the pain, teaching them to position themselves for the Lord to be able to “make all things work for good”. We parent carefully, prayerfully and with purpose.

James : What does your writing process look like

Undisciplined and eclectic. I keep a folder with topics that come to me. Every now and then I’ll look at one and pray. I start with brainstorming questions around that topic, putting them in a logical order and answering them.

James :  How did you get published? 
I researched self publishing companies. I wasn’t interested in being rejected by a traditional publisher. I didn’t know if my books were any good or if anyone would be interested. I only knew I had to do it. As it turns out, people are interested. My prison book sells just as well as my business books, even at secular events.

James : How do you come up with title of your books

I came up with Dangerous Wealth, because wealth is a double edged sword. It can do good and it can get you into trouble. The subtitle “What Every Successful Woman Needs to Know to Avoid Being Ripped Off!” was necessary to clarify what it is about.

“Treasures of Darkness” is from Isaiah 45:3, “I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, so that you may know that I, the Lord, which calls you by name, am the God of Israel.” The Lord had showed me many treasures in the darkness of prison.
“Weapons of Cash Destruction: Protect Your Fortune from Fraud!” is my third book and a “gender neutral” version of the women’s finance book. For that title I turned to the male members of a Face Book business group. I wanted to butch it up and make it appealing to men. It worked. It’s a combination of the best suggestions. I thanked them each with a PDF of the book.

James : Can you enlighten us a little more about your books? 

Not all things are good, but the Lord promises to make all things work for good when we love Him. My business books will show you how to find what makes you vulnerable and what to do about it as well as how to overcome financial setbacks. They bring out the Warrior Prince or Warrior Princess in you.

Treasures of Darkness is different. It’s not even a memoir based on a selective memory. It was written as it happened, real and raw, so you will go through it with me. The good new is, the Lord was there with me too, showing me how to overcome, challenging old assumptions, bringing fresh revelation. You will see how much He is with you, when you draw on Him.


James: Tell us your guiding principle that governs your life?  

Love God. Maintain an intimate relationship with Him. Love people. See Christ in them, but be discerning about them too. Ask the Lord for His perspective of any circumstance, blessing or person. That’s when you’ll find treasure and purpose.

James : How have you cultivated these values? 

Choosing to trust God in a circumstance, rather than blame Him for it. Practising forgiveness. Modelling and teaching these values to my children. Prison really defined and tested these values. It taught me to see past the exterior to Christ inside a person, to genuinely care about them. When people sense you genuinely care, you can reach them.


James : Do you have any advice for writers looking to get published? 

Yes. It’s not about YOU. Your writing is for His glory, to further His purposes, whether it be simply a heart-warming romance or a serious “How-To” book. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3) Walk humbly, don’t confuse your opinion with the gospel. “Passion without Compassion, is just Ambition.”

Write to be understood rather than to impress. Pray to be effective.

You can do things very, very cheaply if you are resourceful. Outsource using websites such as oDesk. I recommend CreateSpace as a print-on-demand service because it requires simple formatting and has excellent customer service.

Be humble and market your books. Literary snobbery against the business of books dishonours God. If He has given you a message to get out there, you don’t have the right to sit on it and wait to be discovered. Hire a professional editor so you don’t sound illiterate, yet still retain your own “voice” in the work.

Choose a title that will get the reader’s attention.

Make a book trailer. Make it attention getting from the start. Mine is here Watch Book Trailer "Treasures of Darkness - A Prison Journey"

If you have a how-to or helpful book, learn to be a speaker and sell your books at the back of the room. If you can’t speak in front of anyone, talk to your computer camera and record a video teaching what you know. Separate the audio and you suddenly have 3 products from one.


Meanwhile, I also keen to review your book, Treasure of Darkness, if you have no objection.

Thanks and look forward to co-operate with you.

CHOICE, COMPROMISE AND COSTLY


CHOICE, COMPROMISE, COSTLY

Would you agree that life is a choice? Every day, we have to make many decisions, one way or the other, knowingly or unknowingly, impliedly or expressly. No action is also a decision.

To live life to its fullest, we need to grow up and not only grow old. Grow in every aspect of life, be it physically, mentally and spiritually. Otherwise, sad to say that living is just occupying space without meaning. As such, lifelong learning is necessary for us to grow up as we are ageing. That is the beauty of ageing as well.

In short, we need not only look back and get experience from our pasts but look forward and see hope in our future of life. No one can live life without hope and faith. Meanwhile, stay vigilant and look around to find reality. Most importantly is to look within ourselves and find our self through listening to our inner voice.

By knowing our true selves and passions, we can then serve with utmost might and without much effort. This is because we will truly enjoy what we are doing. That is exactly what we want from life and we must be grateful with what life is giving us. Otherwise, we are just swimming against the current and feel unhappy all the while. Our Conscious Choice will determine what our choices will be and we will never regret what we have chosen. We will response to it without any resistance and objection. In fact, we shall live the best out of it, making us lack nothing. We will either chose to live Now or Never. Because there may not be a second Chance.

At times, it may involve simple choices and at times it may be a difficult one. You may look back and find a situation more complicated despite it being a simple one. From my experience, I do get caught in such a situation and due to my own perception that deceive me to think otherwise. Be Cautious with our thoughts.

At times, we do not want to make to a stand, but rather find an easy way to resolve it. It is worthy to note that it is easy to COMPROMISE, but it comes with a COST, at times it may be very COSTLY. Easy way is like a highway WHICH MAY NOT be the right path. Whereas the right path is usually the narrow way. But the truth is that the choice is very much dependent on the individual's past experience, background and other reasons best known to himself.

To make our discussion much clearer, below please find the two illustrations. 

For instance, when it comes to matters of life and death, do you seek the best doctor or the cheapest doctor? Guess any normal and rational person will firstly opt for the BEST because they are wanting the specialised knowledge and precision. This is because you can't afford to compromise after all, there may not be a second Chance, so to speak.

Another good example are planes. Do the engineers or technicians do a thorough and precision check before certifying the plane fit to fly? Absolutely yes. This is because we cannot afford to let the plane drop from the sky. Here, is another clear example of no compromise case!

So what about our life which involved our loved ones? Do we compromise on that or insist on the best? There is always a "Cost" hidden, implied or express for every choice we made. We either pay it now or later....latter is always being the higher and longer.

What would you do for those matters that affect you most? Compromise or do your best? What cost might be reasonable for your loved ones?

At Lift you up, we believe you and your loved ones deserve the BEST, and not to compromise knowingly as it may be very costly. That's why we always insist on our utmost when serving you, our true treasures.
