Welcome to the July 18, 2009 edition of living a real life.
This carnival is a collection of articles submitted over the last few months. The carnival has been inactive for a little while due to the number of irrelevant and spammy posts we received. I am hoping that we can start off again and find relevant and useful submissions for the readers.
Let's kick off this carnival.
Andrew Rondeau presents The Greatest Success Secret of All Time posted at Great Management, saying, "Sir Richard Branson swears by it and credits it as one of the secrets to his success. Check out an excerpt from A Touch of Greatness."
Applying the Law of Attraction presents Can You Use The Law of Attraction to Achieve Your Desires posted at Applying the Law of Attraction Membership Library, saying, "When you have desires in life you want to make happen you will want to use the Law of Attraction to make it work.
omguy presents The Butterfly Effect posted at Ordinary Miracles, saying, "A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours. . ."
Joshua Seth presents Skydiving As A Metaphor For Life posted at Joshua Seth Blog, saying, "As I think back over the years and wonder at how I got to live this life of non-stop travel and adventure I am reminded of two of my favorite phrases “The world is your oyster” and “Carpe diem” (seize the day). I truly believe you can be, have and do anything you want in life once you clearly identify what that is and give yourself permission to have it."
Erin Pavlina presents Erin Pavlina’s Blog » Blog Archive » The Path to Purpose posted at Erin Pavlina's Blog, saying, "People ask me all the time how they can figure out their purpose, their one true path through life. I’m sure there is more than one way to get there, but let me share the method I used to finally find my way. Perhaps it will work for you too."
Diane Corriette presents What Is Greatness? posted at Personal Growth. Discovering Greatness with Inspirational Guidance, saying, "We all have greatness within us but what does being great mean to you and why is it more than just being positive?"
Andy presents Giving Back to Others posted at Personal Hack, saying, "Often we go through life in a very selfish state where all we want to do is take, take, take. Kind of like that game “the hungry hippos”. I had this thought the other day and questioned myself “would making more money, taking care of my health, or pursuing any other goal I had be worth while if I lived by myself on an island away from any other human being?”"
Chris Edgar presents To Be Creative, Let Go Of Your Identity posted at Purpose Power Coaching, saying, "Many of us are driven by a need to “know who we are”—a desire for a clear understanding of our roles in the world. It gives us a feeling of security to think things about ourselves like “I’m a lawyer,” “I’m a father,” “I’m an opera lover,” and so on. However, we can get so attached to the comfortable feelings these labels offer us that we end up limiting our creativity. When we become willing to dispense with our self-labels and stare into the abyss of uncertainty, we gain access to inspiration we may not normally feel."
axel presents Zen-Like Living posted at axel g.
Broderick Allen presents The Power of Now posted at Broderick Allen - Personal Growth and Enjoying Life's Journey.
Storm presents The Beauty of Simplicity posted at Ways To Simplify.
Relax presents How to become clever posted at The Wise Curve, saying, "Becoming cleverer puts you in an advantageous position in life"
Mark Yarrobino presents The First Step is the Biggest posted at Secrets to a Successful Life, saying, "For a lot of people, making any kind of change is extremely intimidating because it looks like a long road ahead that they’re not sure they’re ready to start walking down.
