While I was on my facebook timeline I found this story about Alexander the Great that has a great message. Many of us, including myself live our lives like we have all the time in the world. After reading this short story you will learn what was the greatest teaching from one of the greatest personalities in history.
The story reads as follows:
The Last Wishes of Alexander The Great
On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals
and told them his three ultimate wishes:
#1. The best doctors should carry his coffin…
#2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious
stones) should be scattered along the procession to the
#3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the
coffin for all to see!!
One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual
requests asked Alexander to explain.
Here is what Alexander the Great had to say:
#1. “I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to
demonstrate that in the face of death, even the best doctors
in the world have no power to heal ..”
#2. “I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that
everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth, will
stay on earth…”
#3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people
understand that we come to this world empty handed and
we leave this world empty handed after the most precious
treasure of all is exhausted, and that is: TIME.
We do not take to our grave any material wealth. TIME is
our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can
produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more TIME.
When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion
of our life that we will never take back.

Do you believe in the Law of Attraction and its Powers? Have you wondered what is the reason it seems to work for some people yet is not working for others, including you? The Law of attraction is a law and as so it is always working whether you notice it or not, the problem with the people that the law seems not to be working is that they are not aware of it.
In this article I will teach you some tips on how to get started using the law of attraction to your advantage. Many of us use the law of attraction the wrong way, but with this simple steps I’m about to show you It will become more easy to understand how to attract the things you want into your life.
One way to get what you want through the Law of Attraction is learning to control your thought process. Negative thoughts will produce as much energy as positive thoughts. Control your thoughts and you will control what you attract.
Thinking more about your fears and saying “I don’t want that” is probably going to result in your fears being realized. Universal energy is literal. It does not understand “I don’t want”.
It produces results based on energy. So if you’re producing more negative energy than positive, your results are going to be negative.
Who in the world doesn’t want to be successful? Apparently the answer to that simple question should be a resounding YES! But if we look around us it seems as if not many people is very successful in life. It seems that just very few people actually achieve that desirable level of success that everyone of us just can dream about.
But in order to attain success we first need to define success. A good definition of success is one I heard from Earl Nightingale in his audio program “The Strangest Secret”. According to Nightingale success can be defined as the Progressive realization of a worthy ideal. What does that mean? That means that in order to attain success we must set a goal and work towards its attainment by taking daily steps that will take us there.
In other words that means that, if you are not currently successful in life or don’t feel like you are heading in that direction you need to STOP what you are doing right now and change a few things in your life in order to correct the path. Remember also, if you keep doing what you are doing you are going to continually keep getting what your getting. If you don’t change nothing will change and success will be only a dream.
