VARIABLE SPEED & PITCH CD PLAYER: This is a link to a CD player that you can change the speed & pitch of the CD. Why would you want to do this? Most of the voices on training CDs talk slowly and at times become boring and difficult to focus on. You can speed up the CD meaning you can listen in less time but more importantly, because the speaker is speaking much faster, it causes you to focus more on what is being said rather than having your mind wander off. I have not tried the CD player but I do have a variable speed & pitch cassette player is it is pretty awesome the results you can obtain. By changing the pitch at the same time as changing the speed, the voice does not sound like Mickey Mouse.
GRATITUDE – MEANING by Wes Hopper
"Ever more people today have the means
to live, but no meaning to live for."
I've come to believe that most people go all the way through life without ever asking or answering those questions.
And that's why most people, as Thoreau said, live lives of quiet desperation. Without meaning, life is pointless.
If you have a goal, ask yourself why you want it. Are you trying to make pain go away, or are you trying to create something meaningful to you?
What will people say about you at your funeral? What would you like them to say?
Earl Nightingale once said, "Most people tiptoe through life, hoping to make it safely to death." Try a different path, please.
If you could make a difference in the world, however small, what would you like it to be?
Sit and think on these questions until you start to get some answers. Don't listen to your mind if it says, "Who are you to think you could make a difference in the world?"
There are no extraordinary people. There are only ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things. See, you qualify!
So choose, and expect miracles!
