Microloans For Mothers: Increasing Quality of Life for Families

Microloans For MothersSmall non-profit organizations, like Microloans For Mothers and many others, have constant struggles balancing their mission objectives and raising the necessary funds for implementation.  Operations are managed by a relatively small staff with big challenges of where to place the emphasis so as to optimize the limited amount of time available.

This issue becomes doubly burdensome when a new compelling mode of operations is introduced that appears to have great potential to increase the donor base.

I’m talking about Social Media.  How does a small organization with very limited time and resources dig into the intricacies of how it all works without sacrificing too much from the day-to-day operations that are essential to keep the mission moving forward?

Is Gaining Control The Best Way To Reduce Stress?

I was watching a documentary on PBS about stress based on an amazing book and they were talking about how one’s social hierarchy, like your position and title at your job, can increase stress and negatively affect your body.

Their studies showed that the lower you are on the corporate or social ladder the more your body is adversely affected by stress.  Some of the negative effects of stress on our bodies are more than a little scary.  We all know about ulcers and hypertension, but did you know that stress can cause decreased neurogenesis, responsible for populating the growing brain with neurons which has been linked to depression?  Stress can also cause increased hippocampal neuronal atrophy – otherwise known as brain shrinkage.  Sheesh!

Your opportunity for success is right in front of you.

You just need to have a clear idea of your goal and move toward it.

Don’t procrastinate when faced with a difficult problem.

Break your problems into parts and handle one part at a time.

Develop a tendency toward action.

You can make something happen today.

Break your big plan for success into small steps and take the first step right away.

Success starts with a first step.

Here are some gems from the late, great Mitch Hedberg

  • I called the hotel operator and she said, “How can I direct your call?” I said, “Well, you could say ‘Action!’, and I’ll begin to dial. And when I say ‘Goodbye’, then you can yell ‘Cut!’”
  • I like cottage cheese. That’s why I want to try other dwelling cheeses, too. How about studio apartment cheese? Tent cheese? Mobile home cheese? Do not eat mobile home cheese in a tornado.
  • I went to a restaurant, and I saw a guy wearing a leather jacket, eating a hamburger, drinking a glass of milk. I said, “Dude, you are a cow. The metamorphosis is complete. Don’t fall asleep or I will tip you over!”

All great achievement takes time

“Keep trying” is the rule that must be followed to be successful at anything.

Your success will always be connected with your actions.

Just keep moving towards your goal.

You’ll make mistakes but don’t ever quit.

Always be prepared for success

There is no shortage of opportunity.

Everyday you’re presented with countless opportunities to be, or do whatever you desire.

Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.

Don’t miss out on an opportunity because you’re not prepared.
