One Small Action = Millions Of Life Changing Results.

I want to share with you how one simple, easy action made a HUGE difference to my life, and it will do the same for yours.

Improvements happen within a week of you doing this one simple step – changes you can see, and changes you aren’t even aware of.

Opportunities present themselves.. Creation follows.

Firstly though, here are the benefits I have received:

Improved self esteem
A Clearer Focus A Definite Purpose
A deeper Appreciation Ability to trust
Better Connections Healthier Judgement
Self Belief Life Passion
Commitment Dedication
Enthusiasm Enjoyment
Improved Memory Self Confidence
Personal Awareness Personal Growth
Changed Perspectives Deeper Understanding
Self Improvement Motivation
Extra Resilience Inner Strength
Enhanced Creativity More Opportunity
FUN Positive Outlook
Genuine Interest in everything around me

These are MY benefits, yours may be different. One thing is for sure.. whatever you want to change your life – Will change.

HOW, I hear you say…

FINALLY A PLACE TO START!

The last few months Ive been doing some intense personal development training as a way of changing my life and I have defined the areas I want to change in my life. Having what I want to change clear, I then progressed to working on How could I change those things. .. this is what I have settled on to do first and I want to share some of the benefits that will change your life forever.

I send cards.. its simple, easy, fun, affordable… I create printable cards online, click send and people end up with a real card in the post – addressed to them personally, with a stamp.

CHANGING OLD HABITS -ways to improve your life.

I never used to send cards, actually Im the kind of person who totally forgot birthdays, didn’t care about “events” in peoples lives and if I did Id rush into the card shop, grab the first cheapest card I saw and then forget to post it. My friends will tell you Im lousy as a friend when it came to birthdays…

I’ll never forget a birthday again because I have the tools to make sure I don’t!

I send cards for all occasions to EVERYBODY… people who help me, people who don’t help me, people who look sad, people who have something happening in their lives, people who just need a lift or a surprise. People having birthdays, anniversaries, illness, people to thank. I send photo greeting cards for no reason and lots of reasons.

I first started sending cards to earn extra cash and because the programme I joined said send a card a day. Well the results make it addictive.. now I send up to 10 cards a day…it is the easiest way to change your life daily. Now it has become about more than money.

WHY? – Let me show you the “gifts” I have received in return for this “simple” act of kindness.

My life now is abundant in healthier friendships and connections, in compliments and thoughtfulness, in opportunities and potential wealth creation.

Merna,
I thought I would send you a card back to say thankyou for all the cards you send me. I love receiving them!! Nicole

Hi Merna,
I received your card in the post today and wanted to say, thank you!
It really brightened my day and the timing was very appropriate.
Thank you J
Varina

Merna, thank u so much 4 the card which I just received. My own family don’t care so its very much appreciated that u took the time 2 stop n think of me. Again thank u so much. U have no idea how much this means 2 me. Take care Barb.

Thanks so much for my card, Regina

Regina took the time to create a framed collage of photos of my son. This would have taken some time to compile, so I took a photo of it and sent her a printed card, …. I just wanted her to know that we appreciated the time she took and thought she may like a remembrance of the work…

Thank you 4 the lovely card, it made me laugh then cry. Dee

Merna,
Thank you for the card with my photos in it, my family could not believe that someone would go to that much trouble for me.

Erin.

I wanted to say thank you for the card. It was very nice of you. Yes it is more personal than an email. Virgin

I was introduced to the daughter of a lady I met once…

“you know the card I have on the fridge.. this is the lady who sent it to me.”

The card was simply "Sending you some love" – as I knew she was going through a tough time.. I cant believe she put it on the fridge.

MORE PERSONAL BENEFITS

I have sent these and many more printable cards on a prompting. Not knowing the effect they would have on people’s lives or the changes in my life that would occur. It turns out – that my cards seem to arrive at a time when people need to be reminded that they are loved or cared for…

People reach out to you – for guidance, compassion, friendship, assistance – and in turn they give back to you – with learnings, new experiences and friendship.

The act of sending greeting cards or thinking of you cards, will help you improve your confidence and boost your self esteem. The response to a card helps you change your attitude and enhances your personal awareness. You grow as a person by trusting your intuition and judgment. Your focus shifts to a more positive outlook. These are the changes I have experienced and I am confident that this action will affect you in this way also. How can a positive action not return positive results?

I am now more aware of others and what is going on for them. I am taking the time to listen, connect and understand people. I am appreciative all that affects me – good and bad. Most importantly, I am renewing old friendships, creating new friendships and influencing people in a positive way to go beyond their current situation and change for the better.

Through this act, I am being invited to coffee and lunch more regularly, I am invited to more gatherings, I have received gifts – a lady I send cards to – called one day and said – I saw this when I was shopping and thought of you… she handed me the book 365 Thank Yous by John Kralik (it’s a must read). She would never have done this for me, except that I have sent her cards and she returned the thoughtfulness.. I came to her mind .

Sending a card is about more than earning extra income or financial rewards. You grow as a leader, developing the ability to manage and prioritize – and you develop a sense of belonging as your network of friends turns into a community.

GENEROSITY IS CONTAGIOUS… send a card…

– tell someone you care,

Let them know they are awesome
That your are thinking of them,
Or are sorry.

Now is the time
The opportunity is here…
The reward IMMENSE

While I do not send commercial cards, I can very much appreciate the spirit of why you do.<br />
I tend to send personal notes. I taught myself calligraphy and I find a personal handwritten note that is also beautiful adds an element of deeper meaning . It is , of course, just a personal preference.<br />
<br />
You are right I have known people who where just on the verge of a breakdown, who had gotten a note or two just in time. That little bit of light as just the right time when they needed it most.<br />
<br />
I also never forget to smile at people I pass on the street who seem sad. A simple smile at the right time can work wonders.<br />
<br />
Thank you for this post.

Thank you for your comments.. in a way they are like sending a card. Often as I write I wonder - is this too mushy or too cynical.. so to get your feedback is rewarding and encouraging. <br />
<br />
Thank you for taking the time.

I love this story. It truly is some of the small things that matter in life. Remembering a friend's birthday, sending a card for no reason other than to say hello. This story is inspirational in making me think ahead to tomorrow and what random act of kindness I can do for someone. <br />
<br />
Thanks for sharing this wonderful story :)
