“If you believe that feeling bad or worrying long enough will change a past
or future event,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It seems like a Beatles sort of day.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLhoNBNpuOQ - There's a Place
|"There's a Place" is a song composed by
John Lennon and
Paul McCartney, and was first released as a track on
the Beatles' debut
Please Please Me. Lennon and McCartney share lead vocals, with
George Harrison providing backing vocals.
The title was inspired by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's "Somewhere" from West Side Story, which contained the line: "There's a place for us." McCartney owned the album of the soundtrack at the time of writing "There's a Place" and acknowledges its influence. The "place" in question was "the mind", making its subject matter slightly more cerebral than Britain's kissing and cuddling songs and America's surf music from that period. Lennon is quoted as saying: "'There's a Place' was my attempt at a sort of Motown, black thing.  It says: 'In my mind there's no sorrow...' It's all in your mind."
Composed at McCartney's Forthlin Road home, it was part of the group's stage repertoire in 1963. With its major seventh harmonica intro (later reprised) and searing two-part vocal harmonies in fifths (Lennon low, McCartney high), it stands out as an early Beatles milestone track. The song was recorded on 11 February 1963 in ten takes during the first of three sessions for Please Please Me.
The song was officially credited to "McCartney–Lennon", as were all other Lennon–McCartney compositions on the original UK release of Please Please Me...

From Jim Rohn's Newsletter - 04/18/16 - "7 Traits of the Most Resilient People":
|7 Traits of the Most Resilient People
By Jim Rohn
Resilience is the ability to return to the
original form after being bent, stretched or compressed. It’s the
ability to readily recover from illness, depression or adversity. How
would you ever handle it if you lost everything you had today? What
would your next step be? How long would you be depressed and upset and
angry? What would it take for you to pull yourself up and start all over
again? How resilient are you? Could you handle it? Could you learn from
all of your disappointments and start all over again? What would it
take? First, it would take a lot of self-discipline. It would take a lot
of positive self-talk to muster up the energy to begin again. It would
take a lot of concentration to block out the noise and the clutter of
all the negative voices trying to get through, as well as the negative
voices of others around you. It would take a lot of discipline to
balance the fear and anxiety with the knowing that, if you did it once,
you can do it all over again.
has no rhythm, but it will because it's so much faster.”
