15 Thoughts for Successful Living

If you can't learn from failure, don't give it a second thought because if you do,
your attention will be on failing rather than on succeeding in everything that you do.

Rather than fearing rejection become the master of it by putting yourself in the face
of rejection every single day of your life... You master something by facing it head on,
not by hiding from it or trying to avoid it.

You are RICH when you are being yourself and you are POOR when you are trying
to be what other people want you to be.

Never make what other people think of you more important than what you think of yourself.

Focus on what is right about you and what's wrong with you will disappear from your
life of its own accord.

Thoughts strengthen you and thoughts weaken you, choose the thoughts that strengthen
you the most.

When it comes to yourself, the opinion that counts most, in your life, is the opinion you
have of yourself.

It doesn't matter if no one loves you, what matters is if you love yourself and in loving
yourself, others will too!

Don't lean on other people, lean on your own inner strength; it is there if you will go
within and seek it out.

All thoughts that make you feel powerful, loved and secure are the thoughts you should
think about the most.

No one can defeat you without your permission.

Being a victim serves no one, especially yourself, while being victorious serves everyone
including yourself.

You are more magnificent, powerful and lovable than you think you are and if I know
this to be true about you, so can you!

The only real weakness we, as human beings, have is underestimating the part our
very own thoughts played in creating the circumstances we have today.

All thoughts that trouble you are just thoughts. Change your thoughts and the instant
you do, what troubled you will disappear from your view.

Letting Go of the Painful Past

You cannot let go of the past until you let go of the pain of the past. And you can not let go of the pain of the past until you are willing to feel the pain of the past until it produces tears in you and makes you weep and cry like a baby.

This process is known as Emotional Forgiveness. When we cry, we are emotionally forgiving others for harming us and forgiving ourselves for allowing ourselves to be harmed, by others, in the first place.

Feeling the pain of the past is a lot easier than you think and the relief you will feel when your tears begin flowing will be heaven sent and you will be free from your painful past, once and for all.

Crying is a natural reflex God built-into us to instantly release pain from a hurtful experience and that's why you rarely see an unhappy baby. The moment a baby experiences hurt, it cries it eyes out until all hurt is released from its physical body. Once that happens, a baby returns to its natural state of happiness.

Unfortunately this "natural reflex of crying" when we were hurt, during our growing up years, was suppressed by the adults around us. Because this natural reflex was suppressed, it is difficult for many adults to emotionally let go of the past. If you cannot cry, you can not have the "emotional release" necessary to heal yourself from past hurts, disappointments and injustices that have happened to you.

If you can not easily cry to release the pain of your past, I have two options for you. One is reading the book titled Cure By Crying by Thomas Stone. This out of print book is not cheap ($59.90) but it is worth every penny of it. There are a few of these out of print books available from private sellers. Read more about the book and where you can purchase a copy of it by Clicking Here

When I practiced this "emotional forgiveness" technique (Cure By Crying) on myself, I lost 40 lbs., naturally, without dieting. I developed more energy and enthusiasm for life than I ever thought possible. In addition, my powers of concentration increased substantially and my ability to think clearly about complicated things amazed me. The best part was, the physical symptoms I was experiencing, prior to releasing the pain of my past, that indicated my body was becoming ill, disappeared without a trace. This is a powerful method of releasing the pain of your past without spending years in therapy or taking drugs that only numb and sedate your feelings rather than healing them.

Smiling at his problems.

He had many problems but he smiled at them all. People thought he was crazy, he smiled at them too. He kept smiling through the dark days of his life and allowed whatever came his way "to be" and pretty soon he experienced more abundance and prosperity, in his life. than a king.

The same people who thought him crazy saw this magical change in his life and thought him lucky now. Little did they know the secret he knew. He knew that by smiling at the things in his life he did not want, he was allowing those things to harmlessly pass him by.

In allowing what he did not want to pass him by, he was making room for the things he did want to show up in his life, naturally. Some people saw this change in his life as magical but he knew differently, he knew his "attitude of allowing" made it possible for his good to come his way with no effort at all.

Smile at your "resistance" to the bad things that show up in your life and those things will disappear from your life as quickly as they entered your life.

It is your "fear" of bad things that attracts them into your life and and it is your "resistance to them, once they show up in your life, that makes them persist in your life.

Resistance is futile, surrender is inevitable and when you do; Oh, what a magical life you will live; a life filled with love, health and prosperity, in abundance, that will take your breath away and move you to tears.

He had plenty of Faith

Whatever he had faith in always came true so why wasn't he happy? He wasn't happy because his faith was misplaced. He had faith in less instead of more and because of his faith, life always gave him less while giving other people more.

The Power of Ice Cream

This story was passed on to me by a friend of mine. It makes a wonderful point and I thought I would share it with you. - Frederick

Last week I took my children to a restaurant My six-year-old son asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!"

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"

Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong?

Is God mad at me?"

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.

He winked at my son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer.

"Really?" my son asked.

"Cross my heart," the man replied.

Then in a whisper he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream.

A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

Naturally, I bought my kids ice cream at the end of the meal. My son stared at his for a moment and then did something I will remember the rest of my life.

He picked up his sundae and without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes; and my soul is good already."

Trusting Impulses, Urgings, Promptings

I call them heavenly impulses because they are gentle and peaceful. They slide into your mind when you least expect them. They are unassuming and show up in your mind as a matter of fact with no explanation. Some people call them "intuitive impulses." Many people simply ignore these impulses and yet they are the very ones that can lead you or someone you know out of the darkness into the LIGHT...

Here is a good example of what I mean. I received a "impulse" to send an article I wrote to a friend of mine. The article is the one up on this site titled: Creating with our Thoughts.

When I sent this article to my friend, I prefaced my letter to him with these comments:

I am not sure why I am sending this article to you off of my club site. I was prompted twice before to send it to you but ignored those promptings. I was prompted a third time a few moments ago. As a matter of practice, when I am prompted to do something three times, I do it, even if I don't understand why. Maybe you will have the answer as to why I am sending this to you, and then again, maybe not. :) - Frederick

Within a short period of time, I received a response back to him that confirmed to me that my "impulse" to send him the article was right on the mark. Here is his response.

This article really touched me because I know what it is like to receive that kind of "inner urging" and I am learning to listen and act on these intuitive message's as well.

I loved this article as it spoke to me in a few very direct ways. I am going in for a large interview tomorrow, it is actually my second one with this company. It is a position that is directly linked to one of my strong passions so this is why I am going for it.

The thing that this article brought to my attention that I may be thinking too much of what I perceive the interviewer's are thinking...and that is HUGE! Now that I am tuned into that, I can re-adjust my thinking and allow rather than sending out negative vibes that do not even exist and undermine my intention to get the job.

As you can see, by trusting my "impulse" to send the article to my friend, when I did, I provided him with some valuable information that was relevant to his situation. The content of the article and the timing when I sent it to my friend was perfect. This is especially true since I didn't even know he was considering a new job therefore there was no way for me to know, in advance, how valuable the information in my article would be to him. This is a simple example of trusting my impulses, one of many I receive and act upon everyday.

Things you should know about Intuitive Impulses.

1. They are gentle and quiet, don't clamor for your attention.
2. You never feel any urgency to act on them.
3. They are rarely accompanied with an explanation as to why you should act on them.
4. They provide you with knowledge that goes beyond the rational mind's way of thinking.
5. The information makes life easier for yourself or someone you know.
6. You have to act on your impulses for them to have value for yourself or others.
7. The ability to fully trust your intuitive impulses becomes stronger with practice.




Come from your Center of Gravity

When you come from the state of mind that what you want is a "done deal" and it is only a matter of time until what you want arrives in your physical world, you are coming from your center of gravity, the strongest point within you.

Most people pursue and strive for things. When you pursue or strive for anything that sends a message to the universe that you haven't yet created what you want for yourself, inside your thoughts and imagination, as a "done deal."

When you accept that what you want is a "done deal" in your imagination, release it. The moment you release what you created, for yourself, in your imagination, that begins the process of it materializing in your physical world. It is not a matter of if it will show up in your life, only when.

While you are waiting for what you want to show up in your life, do not give it a second thought. Doubting that what you created for yourself, in your imagination, is a "done deal" slows down considerably the process of what you want showing in your physical world.

Instead of doubting the "creation process," do whatever makes you happy because when you are happy, it speeds up the process of what you want showing up in your life in the fastest time possible.

The only reason we do not release something we see in our mind as a "done deal" is our fear that if we don't constantly think about what we want, we will never have it.

The fact is by not releasing what we want from our mind we prevent the universe from bringing it into our life or guiding us to it with effortless ease.

Insights into our Thoughts

Thoughts have consequences. The first place we feel those consequences is in the body.

Positive thoughts make the body feel healthy and negative thoughts make the body feel sickly.

Positive thoughts expands the cells of the body and allows the energy within the body to flow freely.

Illness, in many cases, is a result of the thoughts we think that prevents the energy within the body from flowing freely.

When, by our thoughts, we restrict the flow of energy in our body, we experience emotional distress. If we do not intervene and alleviate the emotional distress, it buries itself into our physical body and manifest itself in the form of a physical illness.

Thoughts attract or repel what we want. The great thing is, since they are our thoughts, we can change them anytime we find we ourselves thinking thoughts that are pushing things away from us rather than attracting things to us.

When we change our thoughts, the consequences of our thoughts change along with them. What could have been bad consequences become good ones when we think the very best thoughts we can.

All thoughts are good thoughts including the ones we judge to be negative. Negative thoughts are nothing more than "benevolent teachers" in disguise entering our lives to teach us lessons in love.

Creating with our Thoughts

"Everything, in life, is created twice; mental and physical."
(Quote from: "The 22 Non-Negotiable Laws of Wellness" By Greg Anderson)

Everything we have or don't have in life is a result of our thoughts. Thoughts are things, powerful things and they will either attract to us or push away from us what we want.

Here is the rub when it comes to creating with our thoughts. It is the thoughts we think other people are thinking about us that trip us up every step of the way.

You see, in order to create what we want in life, it has to come to us through other people. If we want money, it has to come to us from someone who has money to give us. If we want love, it has to come to us from someone who has love to give us.

If we think that other people think we are not lovable, guess what, no one will love us.

If we think that other people think we are not worthy of money, guess what, our boss will never give us a raise and few people will buy any product or service we are offering them.

This is all a result of our own thoughts, the ones we think other people are thinking about us. This is called "projection thinking."

When creating what you want with your thoughts, always think other people are thinking the very best things about you and they will. As a result, you will easily attract into your life all the love and money your heart has ever desired.

Don't Fight a Bad Feeling

No one likes to feel bad but people do.

The mistake we make when feeling badly is we fight the feeling. We fight or resist bad feelings because we think that will make them go away. The fact is, any unpleasant feelings we fight with gain power over us and increases in intensity thereby making us feel even worse.

A bad feeling of any sort, anger, frustration, anxiety, depression, is simply telling us that our thoughts, whether we are aware of them or not, are taking us in the direction we do not want to go; they are taking us further away from what we want, which is to feel good.

Creating the Magical Life...

If life is not magical for you, literally magical, consider this:

Is it possible, like so many others before you, that you have been brainwashed into believing life is hard and difficult and if you want to be like other people you have to make life hard and difficult for yourself too!

If you want life to be magical for you; think for yourself, live your own life, create your own reality... You can do this you know, through the power of your very own thoughts....


The only real weakness we have
is underestimating the part our very own
thoughts play in creating the Reality we have today.

Are you an Unwitting Victim and Martyr?

Putting others first all the time
will only put you back at the end of the line.


If your life is hard or difficult or if people think you are the nicest person in the world but you feel all used up, you are putting other people first, all the time, at the expense of your own God given right to receive as much as you give.

If you give to others and expect nothing back from others, that is exactly what you will receive. This kind of thinking represent the mentality of the victims and martyrs of this world.

Victims/Martyr Mentality

"I take care of other people all the time, I am unselfish and never think of myself. I am a giver, not a receiver, I treat people right. I give of my time, talent and money to them as often as I can. I do this because I want other people to think I am a great person because, secretly, I don't really believe I am."

Did you know that the more you take care of yourself before all others, the more other people will appreciate you and think highly of you. The people who think of themselves first, in life, are rewarded the most. They have the most money, the most friends, the best health and the most fun in life.

Here is the interesting thing about loving yourself first. The more you love yourself, the more you will want to share that love with others. In return, people will sense your high level of self-esteem and they will be attracted to you and give you the things you want, often times, without you even asking them for a thing.

Treat yourself right; love your neighbor
as much as yourself, NOT more than yourself.

Commit to your Dream...

Until one is committed there is hesitancy, a chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way. " - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

The Difference in Pay. Ouch!

In 1920 the difference in pay between a janitor and the CEO of a major corporation was 47 to 1.

For every dollar the janitor made, the CEO made 47 of them.

In the years 2000, the difference in pay between a janitor and the CEO of a major corporation was 14,000 to 1.

For every dollar the janitor made, the CEO made 14,000 of them.

10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Work For Others.

1. They control your financial destiny.
2. They decide how much money you make.
3. They are only interested in what you can do for them.
4. They only give you what you need to keep you quiet.
5. They never give you what you want, they keep that for themselves.
6. They make a large profit off of you and you don't.
7. They, often times, want more from you but don't pay for it.
8. They threaten you, in subtle ways, as a way to keep you in line.
9. They decide how much time off you can have.
10. They have power over you because you permit them to.

Here is the worst part of working for someone else; they work very hard to make you dependent on them so you won't discover that you don't need them and can make more money working for yourself .

In addition, they undermine the confidence you have in yourself, in very subtle ways, as a way to make sure you don't find out how talented, intelligent and powerful you really are. The moment you discover just how talented, intelligent and powerful you truly are, you will leave the company you work for in a heart beat.

Imagine This

What can you imagine for yourself? Can you imagine prosperity in abundance, the perfect life partner, fully restored health. Whatever you can imagine for yourself, you can have.

In order to effortlessly have what you want come into your life, you must see it in your inner world (your imagination) as a DONE DEAL.

Dictionary Definition of the word: Imagination: The formation of a mental image of something that is neither perceived as real nor present to the senses.

Here is the thing, what you imagine is REAL... it is real to you and to no one else until what you imagine becomes your reality in your outer world.

The same powers of imagination that
creates the good in our life also creates the bad.

When you focus on what you want in your imagination and see it as a done deal, you set into motion that forces of the universe that either brings what you want to you or guide you to it with no effort at all.

If you can imagine it, you can have it.
People are trained by the "media gods" to imagine the worst for themselves because the bad things of life are good news for reporters and the good things of life are not. Train yourself to imagine the best for yourself and whatever you imagine will become your reality.

Zillions of Books About Making Money

You can read a zilllion books about making money, in abundance, and none of the information in those books will work for you, if you are not doing what you love to do as a way of making your money.

Making money for money's sake pushes money away from us while doing what we love to do the most for money, attracts money to us. There is something absolutely amazing and astonishing about doing what you love to do when it comes to making money.

First, when you do what you love, the money follows naturally.

Second, when you do what you love, it doesn't feel like work, it feels like play.

Third, when yo do what you love, you always have an unlimited supply of energy.

Fourth, when you do what you love, you will want to live forever because you are having such a damn good time doing what you love to do as a way of earning your riches honestly.

If you are doing things for money that stress you out or make you unhappy, in any way, you are going against your own integrity in regards to money and this keep money, in abundance, at a distance from you, just outside your reach.

However, when you do what you love to do for money, you don't even have to worry about money ever, it will always be there for you when you need it, every single time without fail...

For some reason that I cannot explain when we are doing what you love to do the most in regards to making money, the Cosmic Banker, the source of all abundance in the universe, makes sure we are never without money.

I should know, I have been doing what I love to do the most, since 1998 with no guaranteed paycheck and money is always there for me. I don't even think about money, any more, because it is always there for me when I need it, in the amounts I need, and it is never late.

Self-Help Insights About Luck

Do you believe you live in a hostile universe with only moments of safety or do you believe you live in an user-friendly universe with only moments of danger?

Folks who believe they live in a hostile universe, with only moments of safety, have the worst luck of them all.

Self-Help Insight About Feelings

The most damaging thing that was ever done to us, during our growing up years, was people making us afraid of our feelings.

When we are afraid of our feelings they threaten us and make us try to run from them. If we can't run from them, we sedate or medicate them.

Feelings we are afraid of are nothing more than "benevolent teachers in disguise" who have entered our lives to teach us lessons in love.

Once we learn the "lessons in love" unpleasant feelings have come to teach us, those feelings disappear from our life instantly.

Self-Help Insight from a Kid's Game

Do you remember the game you played as a kid called HOT/COLD?

It went this way. You would close your eyes and your friends would hide an object in the room. After you opened your eyes, you had to find the object.

If you were getting close to the object they would tell you that you were getting warmer. If you were moving further away from the object they would tell you that you were getting colder.

If you were on top of the object, they would yell HOT and if you were as far away from the object as you could get, they would yell COLD.

Our feelings work the some way. When we are accurately going in the direction of what our heart desires, we feel positive, warmer. When we are moving further away from what we want, we feel negative, colder.

Our feelings are our internal, infallible, cosmic compass that will lead us to the desires of our heart when we pay attention to them. Good feelings tell us we are headed direction of what we want and bad feelings tell us we are moving further away from what we want.


Self-Help One Liners - Part I

Solutions appear when we release the problem from our mind.

Life is a mirror and always reflects back to us exactly what we think.

Feelings are cosmic magnets that attract to us or push away from us what we want. Feeling good bring good things into our lives. Feeling bad bring bad things into our lives.

The language of the soul is the language of feelings. Understand what your feelings are telling you and you will understand the messages of guidance and advice the universe is sending your way.

You are much better than you think and not nearly as bad as you fear.

The only real weakness we have is underestimating the part our very own thoughts play in creating the circumstances we have today.

Anytime you criticize yourself, you injure yourself in some way.

In the spirit of play, life is easy.

The devil's real name is self-doubt.

Every thought we think is a prayer to God.

You are perfect in every way until you compare yourself with another.

When you believe in your own thoughts, you are in control of your destiny. When you believe in the thoughts of others, they are in control of your destiny.



Searching for Answers?

To one degree or another life is always about searching for answers to "this thing or that thing." Answers allows us to live the life we want and to make our most important dreams come true.

Here is the important thing about the answers you seek:

Find the answers that work for you. While many people have many answers, their answers may not be the right ones for you. If you follow the answers someone gives you and they don't work for you, let the answers go and continue the search for the answers you seek that work for you.

Just because an answer sounds good, doesn't mean it will work for you. If you continue to try to make an answer work for you that isn't the right answer for you, you will be disappointed and begin to think there is something wrong with you, when in fact, you simply haven't yet found the answer that is right for you.

What are you grateful for today?

As some of you know from reading the articles on this site, there is magic in expressing gratitude for what we have. In fact, expressing gratitude for what we have guarantees that we will have more.

Many of us have things in our life that we are not grateful for and it's important that we shift our focus away from those things we are not grateful for. Here's why:

When we focus our attention on what we are unhappy about or not grateful for, we attract into our lives more of those things we do not want. Our mind is a POWERFUL thing and always delivers to us what we focus our attention on the most.

Before I started the practice of gratitude I was an ingrate. In other words, I wasn't grateful for anything and because I wasn't, life stripped me of everything I had, literally. Nothing changed in my life until I became grateful for what I had and since everything had been stripped away from me, I started with small things.

Among around things, the thing I was most grateful for is that I finally learned my lesson, albeit the hard way, that being ungrateful for what I had resulted in me having less, much less, instead of more.

If you begin the practice of focusing on what you are grateful for, over next 30 day, and leave alone what you are not grateful for, watch what an amazing difference that will make in your life.


To begin the practice of gratitude, click on the "comments link" at the end of this message and post anonymously, if you wish, what you are grateful for today.



Did you do what you loved today?

I cannot underestimate the importance of doing what you love as a way to attract all the happiness, health and prosperity you have ever desired. The best part is, when you are doing what you love, these things will come into your life effortlessly.

There is nothing that will bring the magic back into your life faster than when you are doing what you love. In fact, it is goes beyond magic.

When you begin doing what you love on a consistent basis, miracles, large and small, will start showing up in your life that will take your breath away and move you to tears.

For some of you, you may have to turn your life upside in order that you can do what you love 99% of the time. Once I changed everything about my life that I was doing that I did not love, life became incredibly easy for me. It will be that way for you too when you consistently, on a moment by moment basis, do what you love to do the most.


Why Perfectionists Fail....

Perfectionists not only fail at everything they do in life, they suffer a lot. You see, a perfectionist is a person who mistakenly believes they must do things perfectly, in every way, in order for success to come their way. This belief is born in fear and because this is what a perfectionist's believes, they fail at everything they do.

If you are a perfectionist, give yourself a break today and only do those things that make you happy and bring joy into your life. The things you do that are less than perfect, in your eyes, let them be in God's hands. He will make the imperfect things you do perfect in every way and success, in all that you do, will come your way with no effort at all.

Striving to achieve excellence, in all that you do, allows you to experience satisfaction while striving to achieve perfection, in all that you do, creates dissatisfaction in you.


Neutralizing Unpleasant Conversations

If you find yourself involved in a conversation with someone that is unpleasant, rather than making the conversation more unpleasant, pause for a second, look the other person straight in the eye and as gently as you can, say these words to them

"I am not enjoying this conversation."

After saying these words, pause and wait for the other person to speak. Their first reaction will be one of muffled amazement because chances are no one ever said that to them before.

There first question to you in response to your words will be asking you why you are not enjoying the conversation with them.

Tell them why and as a result of telling them why you not enjoying the conversation, they will work real hard to make the conversation with you as enjoyable as possible.

As an example, I had a conversation with a lawyer the other day about my elderly parents financial affairs. The conversation was becoming very unpleasant for me because the lawyer was speaking too fast and using words I did not understand. Finally, after he paused for a moment, I said as softly and as gently as I could:

"I am not enjoying this conversation."

The lawyer's eyes opened wide and for a moment he was speechless and then he asked me why I wasn't enjoying the conversation. I told him why.

I told him I was spending my money for his services and that he was talking to fast and I didn't understand much of what he was telling me.

I told him when I spend my money on anything I expect to receive enjoyment in return and if he was not willing to make this conversation enjoyable for me, I would find another attorney who would.

From that moment on the attorney bent over backward making sure I enjoyed the conversation with him and I did...

Simple words and simple truths,
spoken kindly, change everything
for the better, instantly..


Smiling Meditation

Most of the meditations I have come across require more time and effort than I am willing to put into them. I believe in the power of meditation to relieve stress and increase our level of energy but I don't believe in making meditation hard.

In the book that I shared with you in a previous message titled "Be free where you are," there is a chapter in the book titled: Smiling As a Practice. After reading that chapter I creating a "smiling meditation" for myself. Here is how it works.

When people or circumstances in your life begin to make you feel uptight, smile at them. Smiling expand the cells in the body and allow the energy in our body to flow freely which allows us to feel light-hearted regardless of the people or circumstances around us.

When we frown, it contracts the cells of our body and shuts down the flow of energy in our body and that's why we feel so uptight. In addition, when you smile at people who are being unpleasant around you, it disarms them and makes them either change the subject or they will leave your presence and go annoy someone else instead.

The next time unpleasant circumstances or people show up in your life, begin smiling at them on the inside until the smile works it way to the outside of you naturally and then watch how quickly peace returns to you...

You will be amazed at how powerful this simple "smiling meditation" is when it comes to keeping you centered and balanced when those around you are freaking out. While it might not seem logical to smile at unpleasant situations or people in your life, life is not about being logical all the time, life is about doing what works.


The Magic of Believing

Beliefs are powerful things, they attract to us or push away from us what we want.

"Do what you love and the money will follow" is a new belief for many people. If this is a new belief for you, protect it, nurture it, strengthen it until this belief becomes so strong in you that nothing or no one can shake you from this belief and then what you believe will come true for you with effortless ease.

When I first acquired this new belief, I was thrilled with the idea that all I had to do was do what I loved to do as a way of making money and the money would follow but it didn't. I was puzzled as to why this belief wasn't working for me. It took some time for me to realize that the skeptical side of me was always undermining this belief and making me doubt it.

Every time I did what I loved to do, if the money didn't follow as quickly as I thought it should, I began to question the validity of this belief, to doubt it. It took some time for me to realize that as long as I doubted or questioned this belief, it would never come true for me.

These days, this belief is a fact of life for me. I only do what I love to do, when it comes to making money, and the more I do what I love, the more money that flows into my life effortlessly.

Reviewer Comments

Absolutely Wonderful!, February 27, 2000

I find myself wondering if the reviewer below me and I read the same book! Antiquated nonsense? No way. When you stop and consider that everything around you at this moment was first the "thought" of you or someone else you begin to see the amazing power of thought and belief.

Even the natural world and all its splendor was first the thought of a Higher Power or Force. So you can see how powerful this thing called belief is. As a matter of fact, there is NOTHING that you do that is not preceded by a thought of some kind.

When this book is applied to your own life you will find powerful changes that your belief effected. The "mirror technique" is particularly potent as are the exercises for auto-suggestion. It seems to me that the Creator gave us complete power over but one thing and that is our own minds. People who run this book down or make sarcastic statements about it show that they don't know the force and power of their own minds.

Every single day of your life you get up and then go to sleep. In both of those activities and the countless ones in between, you are conciously using the power of belief in all that you say and do. Trouble is, people get "lulled in" to accepting the bare minimum of life and after years of familial, educational, societal, and personal programming, they forget that they literally have a gold mine between their ears.

If you doubt this, then try and think of one case of anyone achieving success without even the most rudimentary use of the power of belief. This book helps you learn not only how to use your own inherent power, but learn to use it wisely. This book, in my opinion is the best book of its kind to ever be published. Everything that followed in this genre of self-help were take-offs on this.



Allow Money to Come To You

There is a principle in life that goes like this:

"Whatever your pursue in life will flee from you."

If you want an increased flow of money coming into your life, quit pursuing it and allow it to come to you and it will.

I call tell you from personal experience, the more I take my focus off of money and the more I put my focus on what I love doing best, which is sharing my spiritual wisdom and knowledge with others, the more money I find flowing into my life with effortless ease.

This will happen to you too when you focus 100% of your attention on doing what you love to do the best.

Do you ever feel depressed?

The "so called" experts in the field of mental health field have a tendency to make the simple human experience of being depressed very complicated and as a result people suffer from depression when it is not necessary to suffer from depression at all.

For example, when you feel depressed, there is only one thing that makes you feel that way and that is your mind thinking thoughts of lack and scarcity in regards to love, health or money matters in such numbers that you are buried under them. That's why you feel depressed and for no other reason at all.

You can't possibly feel depressed when your mind is being flooded with thoughts of abundance about love, health and money matters. In fact, when your mind is being flooded with thoughts of abundance, beyond measure, you can't help but walk around with a silly grin on your face as a result of how good those thoughts make you feel.

Suffer From Depression No More....

You are trained (educated) by doctors, therapists and drug companies to see depression as a complicated, life threatening, disease because depression is a huge money maker for those folks. They make BIG BUCKS off of your suffering when it is not necessary to make money off of your suffering at all.

Don't blame these folks for making big bucks off of you.
They have been trained (educated), by the people who came before them, to see something wrong with you and then convince you that there "is" something wrong with you so they can make big bucks off of you. Remember, if these people don't find something wrong with you, you wouldn't need their services and they would go out of business.

As a result of you giving your "personal power" away to these folks and believing them, when they tell you there is something wrong with you that is outside your control, you pay them big bucks to medicate, drug, and sedate you and make you FEEL dependent on them when it is not necessary to be dependent on them at all.

Liberating Your Mind From DEPRESSING THOUGHTS

When you do not question the thoughts you think that make you feel depressed, those thoughts RULE your life.

If you OBSERVE (without judgment) the thoughts you think that make you feel depressed, insights and AHA'S will flash into your mind that will provide you with the knowledge you need that will set your free.

This knowledge will allow you to make those depressing thoughts and the unpleasant emotions that go along with them disappear from your life with no effort at all.



Spiritual Nudges...

Often times, when we begin doing what we love to do we will feel this nudge to take care of some unfinished business in our life that we would rather not do.

When you are nudged or prompted to do something you really don't want to do, do it immediately or as soon as possible.

This "spiritual nudge" is prompting us to complete something we don't want to do so it doesn't interfere with our present moments of living when we are doing what we love doing the most.

As an example, I love writing and sharing with you the spiritual principles and insights that make life easier for folks. When I write about those things they produce the highest feelings in me and those feelings attract into my life all sort of good things for me.

This morning as I began posting messages up on the club site, I felt the nudge to complete some things I would rather not do... Those things have to do with handling some of my parent's financial affairs that they can no longer handle themselves.

At this point, I could ignore the nudge I received a few moments ago but if I do I will begin to feel anger and resentment towards my parents. Since I do not want to feel that way, I will pay attention to that nudge and stop writing for now and complete the work on behalf of my parents.

As I go about completing the work of doing things on behalf of my parents that I would rather not do, I will inject thoughts of love into those tasks and I will experience love while I am doing those things instead of experiencing resentment and anger towards my parents.


Love is a, moment by moment, choice we make and by injecting thoughts of love into doing things we'd rather not do, we experience love.


Becoming an Attraction Magnet..

We attract the circumstances we have, in our life today, by the thoughts we dwelled upon the most in our past moments of living. When we change our thoughts in the present moment, we begin the process of attracting an entirely different set of circumstances in our future moments of living.

Thoughts are magnets in the physical universe. When we focus our attention on thoughts about the things we love to do most, those thoughts and the actions we take based on those thoughts attract wonderful things into our life and makes life very magical for us.

If you are like most people I know, when you doing what you love to do the most, it makes you feel happy, content, fulfilled, and satisfied. It makes you feel like everyone and everything in the universe is on your side and they are.

Doing what we love to do the most creates the very best feelings in us and those feelings acting like powerful spiritual magnets attract into our lives the desires of our heart with no effort at all.



Be free where you are...

All of my life I have been a gypsy at heart. I traveled where I pleased when I pleased because of all the things in my life; to come and go as I pleased was the most important thing to me.

Five years ago, circumstances conspired to strip all of my freedom away from me and I ended up being the only one in my family taking care of my elderly parents, dad being 91 and mom being 86.

Mom was in a nursing home close to where dad lived with me....and between taking care of them and working on my writing career, I didn't have the freedom to travel when I wanted to but I found freedom where I was, by taking care of my parents and choosing to live in the moment and enjoy it to the fullest..

Today, I took mom and dad to the airport where they are flying out with my niece to their new home 3,000 miles away from me where they will be taken care of and looked after with love by six of my family members who decided it was the right thing to do...

I didn't convince any family member they should do this, because once again, circumstances conspired in a loving way to make this change possible in my life. I will miss mom and dad but I have five wonderful years of memories of them in spite of the hardships of taking care of them....and the hardships were not so hard once I learned "to be free where I was" and experience the joy of taking care of my parents who gave me life and contributed a great deal to the person I am today.

Do only what you love to do.

Secret to Financial Success

Trust yourself completely.
Do only what you love to do and nothing else.
And money will flow into your life in abundance.
This happens naturally when you do what you love to do.



Mind Versus Intuition

Mind figures things out.
Intuition knows things spontaneously.

Mind only operates on previous knowledge
Intuition has access to all knowledge, past, present and future

Our mind has to go through an elaborate rational process when it works to figure things out. Our intuition knows things directly with absolute certainty without going through an elaborate mental process.

An analogy is called for here:

In Algebra, you have to work the formula to figure out the answer to a mathematical problem whereas your intuition has the ability to spontaneously know the answer to the problem without working the formula.

Our educational system teaches us how to use our mind but does not teach us how to use our intuition and because of this people struggle solving problems in their life when struggle is not neccesary at all.

The #1 Joke For The Day


An old man, Mr. Brown, was living the last of his life in a nursing home.

One day he appeared to be very sad and depressed. Nurse Tracy asked if there was anything wrong.

"Yes, Nurse Tracy," said Mr. Brown, "My Private Part died today, and I am very sad."

Knowing her patients were forgetful and sometimes a little crazy, she replied, "Oh, I'm so sorry, Mr. Brown, please accept my condolences.

The following day, Mr. Brown was walking down the hall with his Private Part hanging out his pajamas, when he met Nurse Tracy.

"Mr. Brown," she said, "You shouldn't be walking down the hall like that.. Please put your Private Part back inside your pajamas."

But, Nurse Tracy," replied Mr. Brown, " I told you yesterday that my Private Part died."

"Yes, you did tell me that, but why is it hanging out of your pajamas?"

"Well, he replied, "Today's the viewing."


If It's Not Fun, Don't Do It...

The most successful people in the world have a great deal of fun at what they do. They never consider what they do as being hard work, they only see what they do as being fun. It is a form of play to these folks that results in all kind of perks and benefits coming their way. The money and fame these people achieve is nothing more than a by-product of them having a great deal of fun doing what they do.

On the other hand, people who work the hardest at being successful are the least successful people of them all. It is true, hard working people survive, they get by but they don't have much fun at what they do and they never attract the kind of success into their lives that successful people do.

When all the fun is gone from what you do,
the motivation to work hard leaves you too.


How to be a Success

Being successful is easy to do if you follow these simple rules.

1. Choose something that is fun to do.
2. Acquire knowledge that makes it more fun.
3. Don't take financial risks larger than you can afford to lose.
3. Don't think about being successful.

No one ever became a success by thinking about it. What brings success into your life is taking action by putting one foot in front of the other, one moment at a time..

What you need to know about being a success, in your chosen field, will be revealed to you one step at a time but you must take an action step, large or small, every day in order to achieve the success you desire. If you follow these simple rules, your success is guaranteed.


Love is Fun

We never think of love in terms of being fun but that is exactly what it is. Fun is defined as any enjoyable experience and if love isn't enjoyable (aka: fun) for you, you are working too hard at love.

When we take love too seriously, it ceases to be fun and that is when arguments and conflict begin showing up in our relationships and as we all know, that is no fun at all.

In the spirit of play, loving others and being loved
by others is easy to do and the best part, it is fun!


Fear Vanishes

When you are afraid, do the opposite of what your fears tell you and fear will vanish from your life. When you are afraid, "do something" because it is taking action that makes fear vanish. Thinking about fear only makes fear increase, action dissolves fear.


People are so gullible, are you?

It amazes me how gullible people are and how easily they give their power away to psychics, fortune tellers, spiritual mediums, astrologers and other people in this field when they can easily know what these people know by connecting to their own spirit guide.

Communicating with your 'Spirit Guide'

Once you invite your spirit guide into your life, communicating with your guide is easy to do. For example, the moment I become aware that I have a problem, I ask my guide a question about how to solve the problem. (Related link: Your 'Spirit Guide') As soon as I ask the question, I release it.

During the course of my day, often times, the answer I requested makes itself known to me while I am busy doing other things. If the answer doesn't make itself known to me, at some point in time the problem simply disappears from my life for no reason I can explain or someone shows up in my life who solves the problem for me.

The key in communicating with your spirit guide is releasing the question after asking it. Holding onto a question, about a problem you have, after you have asked it, is a vote of "no confidence" in your spirit guide's ability to solve the problem for you.

Trusting your Spirit Guide allows answers to be revealed to you. Distrusting your Spirit Guide prevents answers from being revealed to you.

The Path of Love

When we travel the path of love, there is not one problem love cannot solve or make disappear from our lives.

It does not matter if you have a relationship, health or money problem, thoughts motivated by love can solve those problems with little or no effort at all.

On the other hand, the ego part of us which is motivated solely by fear spends a great deal of time discrediting thoughts of love.

Only the ego part of us is not satisfied to live life with an open heart and trust that all will work out for the highest good of all concerned.

The ego part of us thrives on fear, feeds on it, cannot live without it and seeks to see fear in every situation as a way to assert itself as the dominant part of our personality.

The ego never makes us feel safe and secure, in fact it makes us feel quite the opposite. As long as our ego can convince us that our fears, doubts and worries are real, ego rules are life.

When our ego is ruling our lives, it prevents us from experiencing the wisdom, guidance and advice thought of love are sending our way that would make it possible for us to easily create all the prosperity and abundance our heart has ever desired.

Thoughts of fear create problems,
Thoughts of love solve problems.


Your 'Spirit Guide'

Every person on this planet has a spirit guide. These guides are our personal messengers from God. Spirit guides are at our side from the moment we are born until the moment we die. However because each of us has free will, spirit guides never intrude into our daily affairs or make themselves known to us unless we invite them into our lives. This has to be a conscious choice on our part.

When you make the "conscious choice" to invite your spirit guide into your life, your spirit guide begins the work of making a physical connection to you that makes you feel safe and secure.

Your guide has the ability to manipulate the physical universe. Once you invite your guide into your life be on the alert for physical signs your guide produces as a way to prove to you beyond a shadow of a doubt that your guide is the real deal and not a figment of your imagination.

Your part is to step out in "faith" and invite your spirit guide into your life. Your spirit guide will do the work of making sure you are aware of his or her presence in your life in very real and tangible ways...

The purpose of a spirit guide is to teach us how to move away from a fear-based way of thinking, that is the cause of all human suffering, to thinking only thoughts of love in all that we say and do.

The kind of love spirit guides teach us about is not a sentimental form of love, it is a form of love with real power. This love allows people, who develop a strong connection to their guide, to thrive and prosper mentally, emotionally and physically as well as financially with little or no effort at all.


Message About Love

You have to work very hard to stop yourself from feeling the enormous amount of love that lives inside of you. In fact, in order to not feel that love, you have to hold it down.

People hold feelings of love down anytime they judge themselves in any way. They hold love down anytime they allow thoughts of fear or distrust of others to rule their life. They hold love down when they feel guilty about anything, for any reason at all, when by God's grace it is not not necessary to feel guilty at all.

People hold feelings of love down when they withhold forgivenness from themselves for the mistakes they've made. They hold feelings of love down when they suppress themselves rather than express themselves. It takes a lot of very hard work for people to hold feelings of love down.

When you hold your feelings of love down, it's like holding a cork down at the bottom of the ocean's floor. A cork naturally floats to the surface if it isn't held down and this is also true with the feelings of love that live inside of you.

When you allow the love that lives within you to surface, you feel at peace with yourself and everyone around you. You feel no separation from anyone or anything and you experience perfect order and harmony in your life. Feelings of love allows you to know, with absolute certainty, that all is right with your world and that everything in your life is working out for the highest good of all concerned.

Feelings of love allow you to see the good in all things. These same feelings give you complete confidence that God is on your side and you feel no fear at all, only peace and contentment from the tip of your head to the soles of your feet.

Feeling a great deal of love for yourself and others is easy to do if you don't hold love down.

"There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread." - Mother Teresa

The Universe's Love for us..

The Universe's love for us is unconditional and is always available to us as long as we remain open and trusting and don't allow ourselves to become upset or frustrated over events that may surround our life, from time to time, that are unpleasant.

All problems, in life, are based on the lack of love for ourself or others. When love is present, problems do not exist, only answers and solutions exist.

The Importance of Loving Yourself..

There is only one reason to love yourself and that reason is, if you don't love yourself, you will depress yourself. When we allow ourselves to become depressed, we cut ourselves off from the unending supply of love the universe is lavishing upon us constantly...

Love Yourself with Gentleness

You can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are and you will not find that person anywhere.” - Anonymous

1. Be gentle with yourself always and in all ways.

2. Judge nothing about yourself as bad or undesirable.

3. Trust that the universe is on your side even when you can't find a shred of evidence anywhere to support that thought.

4. Remember, some times when you quit trying that is when what you want comes your way unexpectedly.

5. Think the best thoughts you can about yourself all the time even if they are just little thoughts.

6. Your worth is not based on success or failure and it is not based on what you do or don't do in life, it is based on the fact that you are a magnificent, powerful, one of a kind spiritual being, being human for awhile.

7. Being human and living your life with an open and trusting heart is very attractive to other people so do not be ashamed of anything about yourself that is less than perfect in your own eyes.

8. Remember God loves you exactly the way you are, can you do the same? If you can, you will experience great joy and happiness in your life that with both amaze and astound you.

8. Total and complete acceptance of yourself, exactly the way you are, is the fertile soil in which real life miracles grows, flourish and multiply

9. Focus on love in all that you do and any fear living within you will melt away from your life effortlessly.


The Source of Unhappiness

The source of all unhappiness is fear, plain and simple. People live in fear and then deny they live in fear and wonder why life isn't as magical for them as it once was during their growing up years.

Until you conquer your fears, you are never truly free.

When fear rules your life, things go wrong more often than they should and by your fear-based thoughts and actions you attract into your life all kinds of unpleasant circumstances and situations that need never show up in your life if you lived life fearlessly.

People are so accustomed to living in fear, they think it is normal.....and in thinking it is normal to live in fear, they live in bondage to people who use fear as a way to control their lives. The sad thing is that what people are taught to fear the most is themselves and therein lies the real tragedy of life...
"Living in fear is the absence of love living in your heart"


Watch your FOCUS Folks!

As most of you know, whatever you FOCUS your attention on in life EXPANDS and whatever you take your focus or attention off of disappears from your life...

There are some of you who are focusing your time and attention on your problems and as a result your problems are growing and expanding......

Your problems are seducing you by causing you pain and pain threatens you. And since you don't want to experience pain, you fight with your problems, resist them and as a result, you experience more of what you DON'T WANT, more pain, discomfort and distress.


The way you do that is to make WHAT YOU WANT more important to you than any pain or discomfort you are experiencing.

When you focus on what you DO WANT and ignore your pain, the pain your are experiencing will magically disappears from your life.
