The Power of Kindness w/Free Dvd Today, I'd like to share an excerpt from The Power of Kindness titled: "Paid in Full." Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal, he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry and so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness." He said, "Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strengthened also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Years later, that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

Dr. Howard Kelly* was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, he went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown, he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day, he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested from the business office to pass the final billing to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge, and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words: "Paid in full with one glass of milk..."
Dr. Howard Kelly *Dr. Howard Kelly was a distinguished physician who, in 1895, founded the Johns Hopkins Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Johns Hopkins University. According to Dr. Kelly's biographer, Audrey Davis, the doctor was on a walking trip through Northern Pennsylvania one spring day when we stopped by a farm house for a drink of water.

This is one of many wonderful stories in The Power of Kindness w/Free Dvd. The great English writer, Aldous Huxley, was a pioneer in the study of philosophies and techniques to develop human potential. In a lecture toward the end of his life, he said this:

"People often ask me...what is the most effective technique for transforming their lives?"

He then said, "It's a little embarrassing that after years and years of research, my best answer is just be a little kinder."

This is the paradox of the power of kindness. It doesn't feel powerful at all. In fact, it almost feels too simple to be important. But as Huxley said, it is the #1 thing that can transform your life.

How can that be? Because simply put, kindness is the foundation of a good heart and with a good heart...a good life will follow.

This book will make a treasured gift for anyone in your life. The wonderful stories, great quotes and breathtaking photographs will make your heart smile! Here are just a few sample reviews from people who have read The Power of Kindness w/Free Dvd Everyone Needs to Read This From Cheryl of Seattle, Washington. "Such a beautiful collection of stories and poems. Another "crier" for me. After reading The Power of Kindness, I am determined to be part of the force called kindness. Practice random acts of kindness - it's not a cliche... it truly could change the world, one kind act at a time."

The Power of Kindness w/Free Dvd From Anonymous of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. "The Power of Kindness has such beautiful and real information, quotes to live by. It really makes you realize the important things in life. I recommend it 100%!"

That's what my book,One Choice Movie Banner is all about. In it, you'll meet many people who made life-changing choices. Today, I'd like to share one of them—Gary Droz, someone who risked everything to fulfill his childhood dream:


An excerpt from One Choice Movie Banner by Mac Anderson In the fifties, a male high school graduate had three well-worn paths before him: college, the military, and sales. Gary tested the first two, giving a year and a half to the books and two years to his country. But by the age of twenty, marriage and the birth of his first child veered his path toward the promising world of sales. This would prove to be a much longer path than the first two.

Despite his lack of college education, Gary secured an entry-level sales position and gradually moved upward. For more than 20 years, he provided for his family—something his father struggled to do—but with each year that passed his gaze probed deeper inward.

"I never really forgot about teaching, but it wasn't until I realized that each time I was given more responsibility in my job, I ended up with less time at home. At one point, I was traveling from Monday to Thursday for four or five weeks in a row. I'd sometimes go over a month only seeing my wife and kids on the weekends. When I realized this, I knew something had to change."

Deep down, Gary knew there was only one option. But how would he do it? He wasn't young anymore and he hadn't even finished college. Besides that, if he left P & G now after 17 years, he would have to forgo a profit-sharing and retirement package that would be over a million dollars when fully vested.

"I thought about the money and the risks. And then I thought about traveling a thousand miles a week and selling bar soap covers for another twenty years. I was only forty-four at the time, and the way I saw it, that meant I had at least twenty years to do something else with my life."

Most 44-year-olds in Gary's shoes would recall the past and let the weight of a twenty-three year career keep them put. Time investment always seems like a feasible excuse. But for what return? Gary considered this and had his answer.

"The money would have been nice, but it didn't matter. I grew up very poor." Gary learned early to appreciate the meaningful things in life like a job, a roof, and a warm meal, and his subsequent action was born from that wisdom. Meaning over money. Provision and passion before prosperity and position.

He and his wife sold everything in their home that wouldn't fit into a medium-sized box and packed up the car. He had done some research about cities with good colleges where he could finish his bachelor's degree in education. Someplace warm—that was the only prerequisite. A couple of weeks and several hundred miles later, they landed in Boca Raton, Florida.

A stack of bills followed his family to Boca Raton, so once they found a temporary place to live, Gary sought out a job. The position wasn't important. He just needed something in the evening to keep them afloat while he finished school during the day. As far as he was concerned, he had already made the leap and now he was bound to land on the other side. Pride now a dead issue, Gary immediately took a job as a late night janitor at the Ambassador East Hotel and remained there for six months until he found a job much closer to his heart. At forty-five, he began counseling troubled men at the Del Ray Beach Crisis Center. This was the closest Gary had been to teaching, and he thrived. Gary would race through the remainder of his schooling in a year and a half and accept his first official teaching position at Santaluces High School at forty-seven-years-old.

Gary touched many students over the next fifteen years as a high school social studies teacher, but oddly enough that wouldn't give you the entire picture. Sure, he was voted "Favorite Teacher" by the students many times—four years in a row at one point. But the truth is that the greatest testimony to Gary's mid-life leap is what he's doing today as a volunteer—teaching a homeless man to read.

The man is forty-four and jobless because he can only read at a second-grade level. But Gary hopes to change that. It's why he's here. No position. No paycheck. Just passion...and the opportunity to give his homeless friend a chance to survive on his own. One Choice Movie Banner
