Talk health, happiness, and prosperity

Someone once said that each one of us is the average
of the five people we spend the most time with.

Imagine that!
Think of the five people closest to you.
Are they supportive of you?
Do they want you to succeed?

That doesn’t mean to have “yes” people around you.
Surround yourself with people who challenge you.
People who bring out the best in you.
And create a positive, supportive atmosphere for you to succeed.

Those of you familiar with Optimist International know
they always end their meetings on a high note:
with the Optimist Creed.
It speaks of bringing out the best in each other.

Here are some excerpts from it:

Promise Yourself

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that
there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best,
to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success
of others as you are about your own.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
