Think About This
This may be a great time to refinance. It is for me! I just completed all of the signing tonight. The Notary was very flexible, friendly and very efficient. After ten years of being a homeowner, the thrill is gone for getting my very own property tax statement. This time tax and insurance are included with the monthly mortgage payment. The closing cost of the loan was only $850 for a 15 year at 3.75% So very sweet to pay the same amount I was paying, only now, no extra for insurance or additional thousands for property taxes. What a relief! Here are some great ZamZuu bits. Enjoy and don’t go down the worry road!
The Waste in Worry
~by Brad Stevens
If we were to keep a record of all the things we worried about during a given period of time, we would discover, in reviewing them, that the great majority of our anticipated problems or troubles never come to pass. This means that most of the time we devote to worrying, even the constructive kind that prompts us to try to come up with a solution to what is troubling us, is wasted. Thus, we not only caused ourselves unnecessary mental anguish, but also took up valuable minutes and hours that could have been spent elsewhere.
To avoid this, it is often necessary to subject potential sources of worry to the coldly objective and analytical light of reason. Once, shortly before a major concert before a standing-room-only audience, a member of Arturo Toscanini’s orchestra approached the great Italian conductor with an expression of sheer terror on his face. “Maestro,” the musician fretted, “my instrument is not working properly. I cannot reach the note of E-flat. Whatever will I do? We are to begin in a few moments.”
Toscanini looked at the man with utter amazement. Then he smiled kindly and placed an arm around his shoulders. “My friend,” the maestro replied, “Do not worry about it. The note E-flat does not appear anywhere in the music that you will be playing this evening.”
The next time we find ourselves in the middle of worrying about some matter, we might be wise to stop and ask ourselves what the odds are of the problem really coming to pass. We may be able to go on to something more constructive.

Good friends and leaders are like diamonds…you have to dig deep to find them!
The reward for patience, is more patience. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. If you were accused of being a ZamZuu broker, would there be enough evidence to convict you? ~Submitted by Dwayne Bryant – new to ZamZuu!
