Year End Gift – ABC’s of Maturity

For years now, I have periodically re-visited a chart I made for myself eons ago. It has undergone numerous reincarnations; presumably following the evolution of my own life and ideas.

It was originally produced for my first (and now out-of-print) book, cited in the footnote. However, I had actually been working on it long before that. So, taking it out of the closet once again and shaking off the virtual mothball-smelling dust, I updated it (at least) one more time.​

My Gift to You

I offer this ABCs chart to you as a year-end gift. I hope you can relate to it for the reminders we all need occasionally. I trust that these ABCs are valuable for most people, but you might simply use it for inspiration to create your own. For a friendly, easy-to-print version that can be printed and hung at the shaving mirror, make-up table or computer monitor, see the link at the end.

Happy Year-End Holidays, whichever one(s) you celebrate or honor.

Inspired by original version of ABCs from “120 years and Holding, a Smorgasbord of Options for Everyday Wellness and Superior Longevity” (out of print) by Barbara Klein ABCs originally inspired by numerous sources: like Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey Leadership Center, Provo, UT, 1997). Also works of Anthony Robbins, Earl Nightingale, Barbara Sher, Wayne Dyer, Brain Tracy, Og Mandino and many other gurus, as well as by a myriad of bumper stickers over the years.
