Happy New Year!

For some people, the first day of a new year is a great opportunity to get a fresh start. For others, it just another day like any other. I say, both are true. Yes, it’s just another day like any other, and yes, it’s also a great opportunity to get a fresh start. You see, ANY DAY is a great day to get a fresh start. I once saw a greeting card which impacted me

How to Avoid Failure and Guarantee Success

The saddest failure of all is the failure to try. Most people live lives of quiet desperation, a great writer once said. In this, he acknowledged that the vast majority of people do not believe enough in their dreams to pursue them. Back in the 70’s and 80’s a phrase came out that gently addressed this issue. It’s a question you ask yourself when you want to find out what you really want to do

The Power of Gratitude

Did you have a Thanksgiving holiday worth celebrating? Did you make a list of all the wonderful things you were thankful for this past year? And my next question is this: were you one of those who took advantage of the ‘special sales’ advertised by all the major retailers for what has become known as “Black Friday”? In some ways, it’s curious how these 2 events are related. I mean, one day you’re expressing gratitude

A Lesson From Henry Ford

Most people give up on their dreams much too early. They try one or two things, and if those don’t produce the desired results, they figure that “it just wasn’t meant to be”, or that “it just doesn’t work they way ‘they’ say.” The same is true with the Power of Belief. Most of the time, people give up on it far too early because one or two attempts don’t produce the desired results. I’ve

The Secret to my Success

If I were to name ONE thing that has been responsible for the majority of my success, it’s this: I’m ALWAYS interested in learning more. Over and over again, I find that learning ONE NEW THING can radically shift my plans, my direction, and my success. If you’ve followed me for any significant length of time, you know how often I change direction, drop one plan and start something new. Every single time, the shift

Why Today is Especially Powerful

I read an article recently that reminded me of something, and you may find this fascinating. As someone who was good at math and science, I always liked numbers. For a time, I studied numerology, which is based on the assumption that each number has an ‘energy’ that influences whatever it is associated with. Although I don’t have any hard data supporting this idea, I have found that when we BELIEVE in the power of

Another Million Dollar Formula

Sometimes it seems there’s just too much to do, and all you want is to push a button and have everything you ever wanted fall into your lap. Of course, we ‘know’ it just isn’t practical, is it? One of the core principles behind my Choose To Believe material, as well as any good system for using what is sometimes known as the Law of Attraction (aka – the Power of Prayer), is that our

What Would YOU Do if You Had a Million Dollars?

In Napoleon Hill’s classic book, “Think and Grow Rich”, he tells a story about a minister who had spent YEARS thinking of all the good he could do if he only had more money. In his mind, he needed a million dollars to get started. Eventually, he realized that in all that time, he had never really DECIDED to take action and get the ball rolling so he could make his dream a reality. So,

How to Triple Your Income in 3 Months

Everywhere I go, I hear the same thing — “Everything would be great if I just made more money.” “Nothing’s wrong in my life that a little money couldn’t fix.” “Once I get enough in the bank, THEN I can relax.” Money may not be everything, but it sure helps to ease the burdens of life, doesn’t it? Well, I’m certainly not going to tell you it’s wrong to want money, and I’m not going

How to Eliminate Stress and Turmoil From Your Life

I’ll share with you a simple process you can use to wipe away the turmoil and strife of modern living. Each year, it seems the pace of life gets faster and faster, making it harder and harder to keep up. As a result, most people feel an ever-increasing level of stress. Despite the fact that we know stress kills, we generally feel compelled to continue the treadmill of work, work, work. Eliminating stress from our
