I remember when i was a young girl, my Dad would take my brothers and me to the movies and give each of us a dime for popcorn...:: It was so exciting!

...:: What can Ten cents buy now? Not much. But there was a time, one thin dime
had buying power.

What if I told you 10 can STILL be a 'powerful' number?
That is, if all you have is the number 10, could you spend it for something worthwhile?

The GOOD NEWS is you can! ..:: emoticon

You know Spark Guy knew what he was doing when he introduced small goals and commitment team, and encouraged to commit to as little as 10 minutes a day, whether it is your personal fitness or getting started on Spring cleaning.

...::: Like the dime, it may not seem like much, however, consider opening a bag of potato chips and trying to stop at just ONE ! ..:: Something happens with that first crunch !..:: You know what I'm talking about ?

Heads you win ... Tails you lose . One thin dime representing the number 10 can be powerful when we keep building! .. And with repeated time, we are creating some great habits for a healthy lifestyle! .. That amounts to a lot!

Let's say you get up one morning and don't feel like exercising ! ( Anyone ever have that happen ?) But, you are willing to give it 10 minutes . Once you really get into it do you put the brakes on and stop on a dime when 10 minutes is up ...Or, like the potato chip, keep going and add another 10 losing sight of the number?

It's a powerful story of how it began with a single dime and expanded world wide. Founded in 1938 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the dreaded Polio and many other child diseases were stamped out for good!

If you ever think ten cents doesn't amount to much and neither does ten minutes, please think again. It is what we keep adding to that initial ten that adds up to a MIRACLE!

One last thing: If you're still not sure of the Power of Ten, let me ask you:
IF EVERY single Spark member read this and answered YES to the following Question, would that convince you?


Thanks for stopping by and Happy Spring! . emoticon . I've got to see where my ten minutes take me today! ..
