LUCKY ‘13’ - Will 2013 be your lucky year?

By H. Dale Keeton, Ph.D.

There are still some people in the world who think the number 13 is an unlucky number. Many examples in folklore supposedly support this belief for those inclined toward superstition. Traditionally, thirteen is reported as the number of steps leading to the gallows. In numerology, twelve is considered the number of completion; thus, thirteen disturbs that balance. Witches were claimed to gather in covens of twelve, and during the ceremony the devil would appear as the thirteenth attendee. But I believe that 13 can be as lucky as 12! My wife and I were married on Friday the 13th, considered the unluckiest day on the calendar. I believe it was one of the luckiest days of my life, and 47 years later Mary says she agrees (although she states that her agreement is not always consistent!). Think of a few things that might

represent good luck as 2013 has approached: (1) The world did not come to an end as the Mayans predicted hundreds and hundreds of years ago; (2) We did not fall off the “Fiscal Cliff” (even though it feels like we may still be hanging); (3) the Redskins won the NFC East division title.

Actually, I don’t believe in luck. When things go right for us, it is sometimes considered good luck, and when things go wrong, it is often viewed as bad luck. In reality, the good or bad outcomes are more likely related to our behaviors and attitudes. The motivational speakers who chant your altitude is determined by your attitude are actually preaching good psychology. With a positive attitude, we raise the ceiling of possibilities while gaining motivation to exercise responsible behaviors: a winning combination for success. One of my mantras is this: We are not responsible for the outcome

but we are responsible for doing the next right thing. B-Thrifty is neither counting on good luck in 2013 nor worried about bad luck. We are, however, committed to doing “the next right thing” as we can best understand it. This applies not just to the success of our company, but also to the work satisfaction for our staff and employees, to the mutual benefit of our non-profit partners, to the material needs that are presented by individuals and families, and to the numerous community service projects that we engage in on a regular basis. Whether it be concerns about the end of the world, economic cliff-falling, or sports competition, just doing the next right thing will more likely lead us to our desired outcome than depending on luck. Happy 2013! MAKE it your lucky year.

By H. Dale Keeton, Ph.D. Todavía hay algunas personas en el mundo que piensan que el número 13 es un número de mala suerte. Hay muchos ejemplos en el folclore que supuestamente apoyan esta creencia para aquellos que se inclinan hacia la superstición. Tradicionalmente, trece se registra como el número de pasos que conducen a la horca. En la numerología, doce se considera el número de finalización, por lo que, trece perturba ese equilibrio. Las brujas segun la creencia se reunían en números de 12 en sus cofradías, y durante la ceremonia, el diablo aparece como el asistente número 13. Pero yo creo que el 13 puede ser tan afortunado como el 12! Mi esposa y yo nos casamos el viernes 13, considerado el más desafortunado día en el calendario. Creo que fue uno de los días más afortunados de mi vida, y 47 años después María dice que ella está de acuerdo (aunque ella afirma que su acuerdo no siempre es consistente!).

Piensa en algunas cosas que podrían representar la buena suerte en 2013: (1) El mundo no llegó a su fin cuando los mayas predijeron cientos y cientos de años atrás, (2) No caimos en el “Abismo Fiscal” (a pesar de que se siente como que todavía estamos colgando), (3) los Redskins ganaron el título de la NFC división del Este. En realidad, yo no creo en la suerte. Cuando las cosas van bien para nosotros, a veces es considerado de buena suerte, y cuando las cosas van mal, a menudo es visto como mala suerte. En realidad, los resultados buenos o malos son más relacionados con nuestros comportamientos y actitudes. Los oradores de motivación a menudo dicen que se determina tu altitud por tu actitud y en realidad están predicando buena psicología. Con una actitud positiva, levantamos el techo de posibilidades, al tiempo que obtenemos la motivación para ejercer conductas responsables: una combinación ganadora para el éxito. Uno de mis mantras es la siguiente: No somos responsables por el resultado,

pero somos responsables por que lo próximo que hagamos sea lo correcto. B-Thrifty no se cuenta con la buena suerte en el año 2013, ni estamos preocupados por la mala suerte. Estamos, sin embargo, comprometidos a hacer “la próxima cosa correcta” como mejor podemos entenderla. Esto se aplica no sólo para el éxito de nuestra empresa, sino también a la satisfacción en el trabajo para nuestro personal y empleados, para el beneficio mutuo de nuestros socios sin fines de lucro, a las necesidades materiales que se presentan a los individuos y las familias, así como a los numerosos proyectos de servicio comunitario que realizamos de manera frecuente. Ya se trate de las preocupaciones sobre el fin del mundo, abismo fiscal, o una competencia deportiva, simplemente procurando que lo próximo que hagamos sea lo correcto es muy probable que nos lleve a nuestro resultado deseado, sin depender de la suerte. Feliz 2013! Hazlo tu año de suerte.

Want to know what’s hot in thrift store shopping right now? I am going to tell you! SWEATERS! compras de segunda mano en este momento? Yo te voy a decir! SWEATERS!

Brrrr winter is right around the corner! Right now is the perfect time to create some cozy accessories for you and your home by taking advantage of the fabulous prices of thrift shop sweaters. Look in the men’s sweater section for cashmere sweaters. These super soft luxuries work great transformed into pillow covers, accessories, or coordinate a few and sew them together into a blanket for a friend! *Remember my friends: Pay no

mind to that spot of ink on the cuff or tiny hole near the label. If the rest of the sweater looks great and is what you are looking for, get it. Don’t let a small flaw hold you back from the perfect sweater if you aren’t going to be using that part of the sweater in your project. Note the flaw to the clerk and they may even give you a discount. It never hurts to ask, I always do!

Brrrr el invierno está aqui! Ahora es el momento perfecto para crear algunos accesorios agradables para usted y su casa, aprovechando los precios fabulosos de suéteres en tiendas de segunda mano. Busque en la sección suéter de hombres para los suéteres de cachemira.

Si

el resto del suéter se ve muy bien y es lo que busca, comprelo. No permitas que una pequeña falla le impida obtener el suéter perfecto si usted no va a utilizar esa parte del suéter en su proyecto. Hágale ver ese pequeño detalle a la cajera y ella probablemente le de un descuento adicional. Nunca está de más p r e g u n t a r, Yo siempre lo hago!
