A boat was docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village.
A tourist complimented the fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them. 'Not very long,' answered the Fisherman.
'But then, why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?' asked the tourist. The fisherman explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs and those of his family.
The tourist asked, 'But what do you do with the rest of your time?'
'I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take an afternoon nap with my wife. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs... I have a full life.'
The tourist interrupted, 'I have an MBA and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat.'
'And after that?' asked the Fisherman. 'With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. You can then leave this little village and move to a BIG city! From there you can direct your huge new enterprise.'
'How long would that take?' asked the fisherman.
'Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years,' replied the tourist.
'And after that?'
'Afterwards? Well my Friend, That's when it gets really interesting,' answered the tourist, laughing.. 'When your business gets really big, you can start selling stocks and make millions!'
'Millions? Really? And after that?' said the fisherman.
'After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take an afternoon nap with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends.'
And the moral is: Know where you're going in life....... you may already be there!
I love this story - its an old one that has done its rounds via email but it's so pertinent esp in today's day & age. Why do we make things complicated when end of the day - we just want to be happy?
Love you guys! DivineDee ;)

I come across some wonderful things during my travels on the internet - so much out there that is so uplifting, empowering, full of knowledge, love & happiness its AMAZING !! So much sharing going on....
The other day I think I may have clicked on someone's link on their 'tweet' about the Spiritual Cinema Circle and came across a brilliant short movie - watched it - thought to myself WOW now that was powerful and said ooooooohhhhhh I gotta share this with my group!
Of course ummm I forgot but then the wonderful way the Universe works - just yesterday this wonderful friend of mine Russel decided to share it with his friends and I was like whooooooooooaa what a coinky dink but not really because - nothing is a coincidence! *giggle* So it came back to me because it just HAD to be shared....
I just want you to watch it - take the 16mins or so because it is soooo worth your time and then I would love it if we could discuss it too - I always copy my notes I send to you as posts in the group so that anyone can share their comments, feelings, reactions after the post to share....
So watch and please take a moment to share how it made you feel, how it relates to your own life and how you can make such little changes that could go such looooooooooooooooooooonnng
Am so very grateful for each and every one of you in this group - it started as a thought in my mind to share what's in my mind and its amazing how I can share those thoughts with over 700 of you ALL OVER THE WORLD !!! Aye Caramba !! *giggle* YOU GUYS ROCK MY WORLD!
Seriously - a lot of you reply back to this message so it comes to me privately and I am always in awe of your feedback, your love & your warmth & blessings!
I am a blessed child to have folks like you in my life.
Thank you for being who you are - regardless of what you do....
So click on this link, pause the video til it loads fully and watch:
*big, warm, mushy, squishy, tight dee hug and a kiss*
PS A few of you tried nominating me for the Inspire Dubai Awards and needed my contact number *oops* It's 050 376 5945 - thanks again for taking action and the time to nominate me - its appreciated more than you know! http://www.inspiredubaiawa
Are you taking ACTION folks?
Or are you sitting in bed, wearing your pj's and visualizing yourself in your dream car, dream house, the million bucks falling from the sky, really feeling it, seeing it and saying thanks for it.....
Ummmmm all well and good but do remember you HAVE TO TAKE ACTION that gels with what it is you want - whether it is listening to the lil voice thats telling you to send that letter or the subtle hint you have to speak to the person next to you, taking the class you've been meaning to take - whatever that action IS - you need to do SOMETHING in order to get what you want (along with the visualization, being in the moment & gratitude)
Now obviously you will attract several things to you - not all of them will be exactly what you want but as you get IDEAS/THOUGHTS/INSIGHTS to what FEEEEEEEEEEEEELS like a good thing to do - DO IT.
And the quicker you take action - the better it is for you - the Universe likes speed! So don't put off things til tomorrow - am SURE that we have all known people who didn't get their tomorrow's....
It's because of the collective action of people in the US - you have a new President...
It's because of collective action of people all over that there is a SURGE in the vibration of abundance and love going around...
It's because of collective action of people like YOU guys that are part of groups like these - that the world becomes a better place....
SO GO OUT AND DO!!
DO WHAT FEELS GOOD AND WHAT TAKES YOU CLOSER TO WHAT IT IS YOU DESIRE !!
Do it to get that one step closer to your dream - it doesn't have to be as big as moving a mountain - baby steps my friends - one foot in front of another and just watch how each baby step sets forth the Universe to take GIANT leaps to fulfill your dreams......
And now speaking of taking action - I wasn't planning on asking but since I got the nudge from within to do so - I will....
A few of my friends & well wishers have nominated me for an Inspire Dubai Award for Inspirational Personality of the Year *sweet smile*
I figure if more people nominate me - the word will go out there in the Universe that this is me following my passion for inspiring people to be happy, live beautiful lives and Give Love, Get Love, Share Love ;)
Soooooooooooo if any of you feel inclined to want to check out these awards and perhaps nominate me IF you feel like I help make a difference in any way - go ahead and do so here:
If you know others in Dubai that you think are deserving - go ahead and nominate them !! It's all good - its about empowering others & celebrating them....
Much love & Gratitude,

It's funny how we store away the best linen, the fine chine, the 'good' silverware for that 'special occasion' or the guests because why 'waste' them for 'everyday use' right?
Or that 'special lingerie' for 'special night's......
We go out and buy the 'discounted products' for ourselves but when guests come over we get the 'branded' stuff because they are more worthy that us right????
What are you waiting for and what signals are you sending out to the Universe? Ever thought about that?
You are basically saying you are not worthy of HAVING the BEST life has to offer but someone else who actually may or may not make a difference to your lives does???
Why not use the best silverware for YOUR enjoyment?
What not wear that SEXY lingerie for YOUR pleasure today?
Why not sleep in the 400 thread count sheets rather than wait for that 'special occasion'?
If you treat every day like a special occasion it will be !!!
Just think about the messages you send across sub-consciously that reflects the vibrations you are getting back....
Think think think.......!!!
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm interesting concept eh? *giggle*
YOU ARE WORTHY OF THE BEST MY BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS !!
YOU DESERVE ONLY THE BEST YOU TALENTED SOULS!!
GIVE YOURSELF THE BEST YOU HAVE & SHOW THAT YOU THINK YOU ARE WORTHY....
Then watch the magic !! *sweet smile*
They don't call me Princess for nothing! *giggle*
So do me a favour today or actually do yourself this favour today and break out the 'hidden' goodies you've got saved up for a SPECIAL OCCASION and make today a SPECIAL OCCASION.
Imagine the repercussions from the family having a sit down dinner with the fine china & fancy silverware even if dinner is pizza!!!
Imagine the look on your significant other's face when you appear in your silk, satin & lace! Oh la la !!
Imagine sleeping between the softest sheets tonight....
Imagine giving those flowers for no apparent reason just because you think the person (or yourself) deserves them !
Let that imagination run wild and share with the rest of us what you did to show the Universe you KNOW you are worthy for the BEST!!

Soooooooooooooo of course there is the global e-commerce project I am a part of as an independent business owner & that will lay the pipeline for my wealth creation (wanna know more - just ask me!) and at the same time there shouldn't only be one source of income to rely on right? So since I spend so much time online anyways - why not learn to harness the power of the World Wide Web for wealth creation too? I mean so many people have done it and are still doing it and some very, very successfully! So why not me?
I started learning more about social networking and am a avid Facebooker with 2 groups - DivineDee - Give Love, Get Love, Share Love & The Happiness Club UAE, am on Twitter with people following me and now have my own blog on a free site which I need to somehow transfer on my own url which I do already own (gotta make use of it!) and now I am connected with amazing souls on all their own journeys helping me learn as I go along.
Beauty of the world today is that if you embrace the law of Abundance & sharing & FIRST adding value to people's lives - you are bound by the law of reciprocity to get back. What goes around comes around..... If you BELIEVE the world is big enough for us all to co-exist harmoniously, peacefully & abundantly - so shall it be. Truth is it IS. Unfortunately, its funny how there has been an imbalance that with the global financial changes is finally evening itself out slowly but surely. This will let the true cream rise to the top and give back the power held by a small % of the world's population back in the hands of many....
Birth of the social entrepreneur emerges once again ! TA DA !!! *giggle* So my point? My point is that if you follow your passion, do something you love, add value to people's lives with your own talents & just know that you are truly blessed - you can live a life of abundance & prosperity. The internet is a great vehicle to do exactly that & so I am learning and as I am learning I will share cuz we all know - sharing is caring ;)
Part of my learning is going to be a seminar I attend next month - actually on my birthday *hint hint* - Dec 5th - 13 of the TOP Internet Guru's are descending on Dubai to teach us what they know. I have already attended a couple of preview seminar's by Ernesto Verdugo and boy does he deliver & then some!! So I know this seminar is going to be a catalyst for me to propell myself into my new present of living my dreams !!
In order to jumpstart this venture into learning how to EARN online - we got our first lesson's on affilliate marketing soooooo basically if I help them get people to register for this event (which I stand behind) I get to earn a commission - how's that for delivering value to their initial participants eh? *sweet smile*
With stand out names such as Joel Comm, Sean Roach, John Carlton, Mike Koenigs, Barry Dunlop & Dean Hunt, Ernesto Verdugo, Andrew Lock & others all sharing their amazing wealth of knowledge on stage together - this has got to be a ONE OF A KIND event not to be missed. So if you are wondering how to harness this power - do not miss this event.
If you live in Dubai, Middle East, India or any of the neighboring countries - do yourself a favour and register to attend this stand out event - if you have friends in these countries - I would appreciate if you could pass on this note only if you choose to do so.... I am including my affiliate link for you to click on to learn more about the event to make an informed decision - just by going to the site you will receive an EXTREMELY useful e-book with AMAZINGLY USEFUL websites absolutely FREE and if you register - you will help me on my journey to earning my initial dollars online :)
Oh the event is targeted to ANYONE interested in learning how to harness the power of the internet from big corporations wanting to drive traffice & generate revenue from their exisiting websites, small businesses that want to utilize the net to get business, college kids wanting to learn how to earn passive income, stay at home mom's looking for ways to make money to people like me who have big dreams of earning wealth & helping others to the same! ;)
If you don't sign up online and would rather contact Right Selection (the company that is hosting the event) directly - do give them my name & tell them I sent ya ! (Dina Sabnani)
Oh *giggle* the link !!! Click here to learn more about this event : http://snipurl.com/4vbsn

Just imagine floating on your back, eyes closes, totally relaxed with the sun shining on your face *sigh* pure bliss....
FYI - I've lived in this building for 2 years now!!! What took me so long?!?! Yeesh!
What have you been putting off lately eh? Go on - go do something that you've been meaning to do....tomorrow. Has your tomorrow ever come?
I'll tell you one thing - LIFE IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL but do you have a guarantee as to how long you are going to live?
Think about it.
We do not know when we will take our last breath yet we keep putting off things til tomorrow knowing full well - tomorrow may never come. So do something TODAY that you've been meaning to do and see how good it makes you feel !
I am still smiling cheek to cheek from my swim earlier! Ah the life of a entrepreneur - now I just gotta get around to *ahem* figuring out the 'earning money' bit of it! DOH!!! *giggle*
All donations welcome - I am more than willing to sit at home, go for swims, go dancing & write inspiring notes in return for a couple of bucks here and there - hey who said being inspired comes cheap eh? :P *giggle*
Remember one of the IMPORTANT laws of the Universe - RECIPROCITY - you need to GIVE with open hands & hearts in order to receive back so whatcha waiting for?!?! *CHEESY SMILE*
Love you guys ;)

I've been meaning to get to creating my blog and actually have a couple of times but then *ahem* 'life happens' but I figured since I was writing for my FaceBook group - DivineDee - Give Love, Get Love, Share Love - I may as well create a blog as well and then I can ramble on about other stuff as well that interests me apart from Getting Love, Giving Love & Sharing Love *sweet smile*
So what does interest me and may interest you?
Feel Good Stuff
And oh - how to make money online is a definite new interest and I want to share with you my tips as I learn them and comment on what works and doesn't work! There is a lot of passive AND active income to be earned online so why not make it? *giggle* It's an ABUNDANT Universe - money is everywhere for everyone - we just need to accept it sooooooooooooo.....lets take the lil actions we need to take to do so right? RIGHT!
Basically, I am a 'happy chick' & enjoy life & living. I currently live in Dubai, United Arab Emirates which is in the Middle East but I grew up in Hong Kong, studied in California and worked in New York before landing in the desert about 3 years ago ! Don't ask – I don't have a clear idea why I am here but am not complaining :)
Oh and I am the founder of the Happiness Club Dubai so once a month I host a get-together for the general public in the aims for everyone to learn about Happiness and how its a CHOICE we need to make at every given moment in our lives.
Watch this space – it should be an interesting journey.
