Question About Angels And Devils



Question:


Lately the world seems filled with talk about Angels and how they watch over us. Do Angels and Devils really exist? How do I know which one is influencing my life?

Answer:

Angels and devils do exist. Most people don’t believe in these forces of Light and darkness because they can’t see them hard at work - which is like saying that the four seasons don’t exist just because you’ve never actually seen the hand of Mother Nature pluck an autumn leaf from a branch, or gently open a field of springtime flowers.

Angels and devils are always close by. So it’s vital for you to understand that Angels and devils are always hard at work around you. And this fact is no cause for fear, for while their subtle bodies are invisible, their activities are not. The forces of Good and evil can easily be seen working their ways in and through human beings; for it is within us that these levels of Light and darkness mold life on earth in their image.

Angelic forces are for you in every meaning of the word. They are for your physical health, emotional happiness, mental development, and entrance into their own Eternal, light-filled realm.

Devils want you to think that those forces which they wield are also for you. But these dark forces are always against you because devils, by their very nature, are against everything - including themselves!

Your protection from devils and their dark, deceptive ways is within your ability to recognize them as devils. This specialized power of perception comes to you first in the form of an intuitive recognition: a blend of insight and past experience. Now let’s see how to call upon and consciously cultivate this important new power.

Learn to look for signs of the devil at work by staying alert and awake to where it is that devils most commonly like to delight themselves. Then, when suspecting the presence of these dark forces at work - regardless of where, or in whom, you catch such a glimpse - just learn to look upon that condition in the same manner as do the Angels on High. This means you work to meet these moments without fear, righteousness, or condemnation. Your Angelic action works just like a celestial beacon, attracting Higher Angelic forces to your side. And since Angels have complete authority over devils, not only is your complete safety assured, but so is the growth of your spiritual strength. Why? Because each time you stand up to the devil in this way, it becomes increasingly clear to you that the only power darkness has is in the absence of the Light.


Following are 15 Ways Would-Be Angels Can Recognize the Works of the Devil:

Angels enjoy the company of Angels, but are just as content flying alone. Devils are compelled to have other devils around them because their chief pleasure is pouncing on one another.


Angels hate nothing, not even devils. Devils despise Angels most of all, because the existence of Angels proves the devil’s own nothingness to himself.


Angels know the purpose of life is to exalt the One who created their lives. Devils spend all of their time trying to figure out how to get other devils to praise them so they can believe they’re self-made.


Angels have no fear of any dark place. Devils tremble in the Light and the dark.


Angels are rewarded by their acts of self-sacrifice. Devils are punished by their intention to be selfish.


Angels would rather die than fight over nothing. Devils have no life outside of fighting - which they do over everything and for any reason.


Angels never gossip. Devils like to light themselves on fire and then pull other devils into their flames so that they can dance in the searing heat with them.


Angels attract Angels. Devils attract devils.


Angels never struggle with the moment of life. Devils think that life itself is one momentous struggle.


Angels know that there is no real contentment to be found outside of that light which is their nature. Devils find fulfillment in their endlessly haunting wants — which is their nature.


Angels endure. Devils lash out.


Angels let devils go their own way, for they know a devil’s heart is already punishment enough. Devils are always trying to get in the way of Angels in the hopes of being able to cause them some pain.


Angels never try to impress other Angels with their light because they know, however bright it may be, it isn’t their own. Devils delight in fanning their own flames so that they can see how many other devils they can attract with their false light.


Angels want you to know everything possible about them. Devils must deny their own existence.


Angels know that "hopeless" is nothing but a meaningless word coined by the devil. Devils won’t acknowledge the uselessness of any despairing state because it helps to fill their empty lives.

How To Reach The Top Starting From Anywhere



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

'Twenty years ago, when I went blind, it was tough to even
find the bathroom. Now that I've climbed Mount Everest,
well, I guess I've come a long way.'
-Erik Weihenmayer

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

What limitations have I been clinging to that I should and
will throw right out the window, never to look back at
again?

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Erik Weihenmayer went completely blind when he was 13....

Since then he's climbed the world's tallest mountains, run
marathons and jumped out of planes, among his many pursuits.

Erik's story is about having the 'vision' to dream big;
the courage to reach for near impossible goals; and the
grit, determination, and ingenuity to transform his life
into 'something miraculous.'

If you want to learn more about Erik, his book, 'Touch the
Top of the World' can be found just about anywhere.

OK. So if a blind guy can climb the world's tallest
mountain...

How do those excuses sound that you keep coming up with
about why you can't do that paltry little project that's
been sticking its tongue out at you for months now.

People like Erik only have one thing that separates them
from most everyone else; the attitude that life is to be
lived; that accomplishments require some risk, and that the
risks themselves can make life juicy and fun.

Now, it's probably not required that you risk life and
limb to achieve most of your goals, is it?

You want some juice, don't you? Accomplishment? Real
excitement?

Then set a big goal. A REALLY big goal. But whatever it
is, it's got to stretch you. It's got to be something that
you really want... something that would really change your
life.

Write down all the steps it will take. Who do you have to
call? Where do you have to go? Does it require special
training? Do you need tools or supplies?

What sacrifices do you have to make?

Sitting on the couch for another 10 minutes might be
pretty 'comfortable.' Taking one more unimportant phone
call might be more 'fun' in the moment.

But at the end of the day when you look in the mirror...
the only way THAT'S going to be fun is if you cut short the
unimportant phone calls, got off the comfortable couch,
stopped hiding out and took some major steps toward a big
goal... every day. If you do that consistently, you'll
start to really be proud of who you're becoming.

Those 'sacrifices,' if you'll look at them aren't
sacrifices at all.

Happiness comes from what you become, not what you get.
If you become more, you'll get more automatically. It's one
of those cosmic universal laws.

Erik Weihenmayer, in achieving his goals, has become more.
Now he gets paid huge sums to talk to thousands of people
every year about the thrill of working to reach your
wildest dreams. He gets to write about it.

90% of the people who attempt to climb to the peak of
Mount Everest fail. Many die. Erik 'looked' past the risk
and 'focused' instead on the reward, and went after it
passionately.

So even though he's blind, he wouldn't trade his life for
anyone else's. His life is his life, so he's enjoying every
bit of it.

When Erik was about 15 minutes from the top of the world's
tallest mountain, so close to his goal, he started to
cry... but his tears were freezing, making it difficult to
breath in his mask.

So he had to put off crying with his blind eyes for
another 15 minutes...

...until he actually reached the top of the world.

Repeat After Me: "I'm Awesome!"



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"I began to understand that self-esteem isn't everything;
it's just that there's nothing without it."
-Gloria Steinem

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What are five things that are good about me?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

A number of years ago, an eastern university conducted a
study on self-image and some of the ways it can affect a
person's actions.

The women in a large neighborhood were targeted for a
direct mailing. Letters were addressed to them. The
letters were kind of a celebration. They were just a
generic "thank you for being so wonderful in all you do"-
type letter. Thanks for being so generous where you're
needed, for being a good Mom, neighbor, wife, employee in a
world where they're being pulled in lots of directions.
"We salute you!"

Hundreds of letters went out...

...to half the women in the neighborhood. The other half
got nothing.

Then, a week later, a national charity (not related or
affiliated with the university that did the study) sent
volunteers into the neighborhood to solicit donations for
their cause.

Can you guess?

The women who received mailings saluting them for their
generosity and other qualities gave over 60% more often,
and when they did give, they donated over 50% more money
than the women who received no mailing.

The conclusion the researchers came to was that the image
they now had of themselves which they had to live up to was
one of being generous with their time, skills and financial
resources.

Think about it. Only one letter. And a week later, they
were still glowing in their new self-image.

It must have been one heck of a letter!!

We all WANT to feel good about ourselves. But not many
people, including ourselves, are coming up and telling us
how wonderful we are.

It makes me think of the Budweiser slogan, "For all you
do, this Bud's for you!" Do you think they came up with
that by accident? Heck no. They want us all to feel we
"deserve" to have a Bud, that we're good enough. Keep your
eyes on commercials and how they try to make you feel smart
and then tie that feeling into their products.

So how can you use this interesting study to your benefit?
Glad you asked.

What you need to do is become your own letter writer.

The minority who become the most, enjoy life the most and
who produce the most and get rewarded the most, don't sit
around waiting for other people to tell them how smart,
handsome, polite or what a hard worker they are.

They tell themselves this stuff.

Just before I created my first 3x5 cards and my first
tapes, I was almost dead in every sense of the word. And
within days, I started to feel the feelings and take the
actions that would spin me around and send me in the
direction I'm still moving in today.

Go back and look at previous day's sessions. Check out
those affirming beliefs at the end of each letter.

Make them who you are by reading them at least three times
per day. Choose only 10-15 at a time and stick with the
ones you are reading until they have changed your attitudes
and actions. I promise you they will. If you have gotten
through this whole book, read it consistently, not all in
one day, and still you have not overcome some major
hurdles, I'm going to tell you why.

It's because you've treated this just like all those other
self-help books you have in boxes or sold in your last
garage sale. I'm asking you for 5-10 minutes a day.
That's all it will take.

The only way for you to stop stuffing your mouth full of
junk food, to start that exercise program, to stop any and
all of your bad habits and to program your body's
intelligence to start fighting whatever diseases are
fighting you, is to change the image you have of yourself.
You've got to.

Start today.

You ARE awesome.

Tell that to yourself every single day and it will grow to
be truer every single day.

Lemons + Right Attitude = Lemonade



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Adversity introduces a man to himself."
-Unknown

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Who can help? What can I do? Can a tool help? What's
the worst that could happen? Can I live with that? Is it
possible to put a smile on?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Lots of empowering questions today, huh?

Well, in many situations you've got to keep firing these
kinds of questions at yourself and keep your possibility
hat on so real answers can come to you.

The first step in getting through any trying situation is
to first realize that you can... if you don't break down.

If you don't have the core belief that you can get through
this next thing, then it won't be possible for you to ask
these types of questions...

...Just as if the ability itself to even think of asking
these questions is locked in a vault. Tell yourself that
you believe.

That's why so many millions (billions) of people lock up
and never come up with answers when they need them. They
don't ask the right questions. Why? They don't believe
there is an answer, and if there is, they don't think they
can come up with it.

I happen to live in Syracuse, NY...the snowiest major city
in the US. In March of 1993, a storm roared up the east
coast. Rain, snow, high winds. Not good. In Syracuse,
43" of snow fell in just under 48 hours. Add bone-chilling
winds and you've got a real "party"...

...which is just what we were preparing for that day.

About 40 people (business associates and friends) were
supposed to come over. We had the food. The drinks. My
wife loves to entertain, so she spent the previous 24 hours
buying the stuff and cooking and making phone calls. It
was going to be a party to end all parties.

Well, I'm coming from business in Albany, two hours away,
flying down the NYS Thruway listening to the weather
reports. People are all over the road. Off to the right.
Off to the left. The DJ's saying that any minute they
could close the roads...

...I'm flying. I got a party to go to. And a driveway to
clean!

They closed the Thruway within 5 minutes of my exiting.

My wife was getting really bummed out. It didn't look
good. In fact, if you watched the news, it was a absolute
horror show.

What to do?

I got on the phone. Calling everyone. "Hey! Party's
still on! Bring your sleeping bags and pajamas! Lots of
food. Plenty to drink..."

...nothing. No one can make it. The plows have stopped
plowing. A state of emergency is declared by the governor.

What to do? We're not eating all this food!

Call the neighbors! They can walk. Well, they can
trudge! Yeah! There's the answer I've been looking for!

Soon, we had a bunch of people over eating and laughing
and having a ball! And that was the idea in the first
place.

I have a question for you...

How many times, when you have a situation where things
don't look good at all, do you stop asking the barrage of
questions that bring you the positive answers that will
solve it. Do you ask any?

Or do you ask questions like, "How am I going to explain
this to..." or "Who or what can I blame?"

During that storm, aside from when I was shoveling snow, I
kept a smile on because there are few things in life that
are worth getting worked up about.

Now go forth today and make yourself proud!

Ask yourself to come up with answers. And keep asking
until you get them. Find the lesson that is hiding -
wanting to be found- inside each adversity.

Rarely do champions in any sport end their seasons
undefeated. But they still get crowned Kings and Queens
because they learn from their mistakes and defeats. They
ask, "What should I do next time?"

The ones that don't, go home... confused?

By the way, after Syracuse was pounded with more snow than
any other US city during that unbelievable east coast
massacre, the Sunday newspaper (that arrived on Monday) had
this headline:

WE'RE SNOW KING!

When You Look For The Fun, You'll Find It



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Experience shows that success is due less to ability than
to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work,
body and soul."
-Charles Buxton

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What do I really love about what I'm doing right now?
What could I love about it?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

For years, I chased money. I thought if I could just earn
a lot of money, I'd be happy.

Boy, was I wrong!

All I did was work harder and harder and never truly got
paid enough for what I was putting in. So not only did I
not have the amount of money that I really wanted, but I
was miserable to boot!

Sure, I put on the happy face and used all the mental
techniques to get top performance out of myself. But when
the day's over, you've got to be happy doing what you're
doing.

If you're a student, you've got little choice. Go to
class and study!

But look to do something after graduation that you'll
love! If you do what you love, you'll find a way to make
your mark.

Recently, I saw Larry King interview Steve Irwin, better
known as "The Crocodile Hunter." I think he's a little bit
"crazy," but one thing stands out about this guy...

He LOVES what he does!

His mother and father were both into animal conservation,
so he had little choice about his surroundings as a kid.
But he loved it and got really good at it.

None of his friends where he moved to believed that he
hunted crocodiles. So he bought one of the first video
cameras on the market, and filmed himself wrestling with
these crocs. It's AMAZING to watch him do it.

A producer got a hold of one of these tapes and
immediately thought, "This guy's crazy! People will love
it!" He was right, and since then, Steve's life has never
been the same. His show now plays in over 60 countries.

Steve blew me away. And it's not just animals that flip
his switch. No matter what the subject, he is interested,
inquisitive, excited and gets all he can out of every
experience of life.

Do you know what the difference between Steve Irwin and
most every other person alive?

Two things...

One, he loves what he does.

If he were just chasing money, we probably never would've
heard of him... because he wouldn't have stayed in animal
conservancy. His fame and wealth grew out of his passion
for his career.

Two, no matter what he's doing, he's asking better
questions than most people ask all day.

He's always asking, 'What's interesting about this?' 'How
do they do that?' 'How can I make this more fun?' 'How can
we do it better or more efficiently?' 'What can we do now
that will make this job less boring?'

You see, he has to do a lot of boring work... sitting
around observing, writing technical papers, etc. So it's
not all fun and games. But he habitually asks questions
that most other people don't ask...

Every single minute of the day.

How can you make today more fun? How can you make your
work easier today, while actually maintaining high quality
and/or speed? How can you remember the information more
completely?

Keep asking those questions and more like it, and no
matter what you do for a living, you'll be happy and
successful.

Fall Down - Get Up, Fall Down - Get Up



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th."
-J. Andrews

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------


"Isn't there something else I can try to get the job done?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session

------------------------------

Awesome message today!!!!

It seems like at every turn, we get confirmation that some
thing that we're working on or something that we want to
happen isn't going to go quite like we planned. I mean,
doesn't it seem like no matter what you're doing- homework,
yard work, packing for a trip, fixing a broken 'something-
or-other,' that it takes longer than you planned or might
not work at all?

And doesn't it get you really upset to invest a whole lot
of time into something and watch it all go 'Poof!' before
your eyes?

Many of us have been conditioned to believe that easy is
best. We're surrounded by examples of this everywhere:

- Why buy the walk-behind mower when you can get a
riding one?
- Stand up to change channels? Just use the remote!
- Why chop, slice and cook fresh food when ready-to-
cook and frozen is available?
- Exercise to lose fat? I'll just get liposuction
someday.
- Adopt healthy eating habits? No way-I'll just pop
this diet pill or magic herb to lose weight.
- Go to counseling or take other self-help measures to
feel upbeat? It's easier just to pop an anti-
depressant everyday.

Now don't get me wrong, there may be instances where these
"conveniences" could be necessary. Someone may need to use
a riding mower if they have leg problems and cannot walk to
mow the lawn. Someone may be helped by an anti-depressant
in conjunction with therapy following the death of a loved
one.

But for the most part, the conveniences that surround our
lives are the result of, and help perpetuate, the "easy is
best" mindset. If it's tough, requires hard work or takes
a long time, many people run and hide!

It doesn't help at all, does it, that the images we see on
television show problems getting solved in 30 seconds, or
at worst 60 minutes? So when our own problems take days,
weeks and years to solve, it's too tempting to give up.
Call it quits...

...long before we should.

It's sad, but many of us, (and I was a part of this group
until my mid twenties), "learn" that things don't go our
way, usually. We believe that nothing is easy. And since
"easy is best," why bother?

In short, we settle.

Eating right, for example, would require discipline.
Can't have that. It's not easy or fun. So we "settle" for
being not that fat and indulge in fast food.

Concentrating and studying would earn A's and B's, but it
means ignoring all the fun things we could be doing right
now. So, we "settle" for just passing grades instead.

Having a vice like a drink or smoke comforts us when we do
try something and fail...like we knew we would.

But it doesn't matter what age you are--you can start now
to begin learning how rewarding and exhilarating it can be
to shoot for something big.

Here's how.

Give yourself guideposts along the way. If your goal has
20 steps, write down what each of them are. When you reach
each one, it's time for a little celebration.

How likely would you be to give up and quit after you
reached a guidepost and it's time to celebrate? Not very,
huh?

Let's say you wanted to run 3 miles per day, 5 days per
week. Look at the existing patterns-can't even walk 50
feet without being out of breath. OK.
One guidepost could be to go for a 20-minute stroll
without getting out of breath. After doing this for a
week, you notice you're no longer getting winded. It's
time to celebrate!

Smile. Write down how you feel right now. Ask yourself
how you did it. Write down the answer. And smile some
more. Laugh if you want!

So you go a little longer now-30 minutes. Once you have
that down, you maybe pick up the pace from a stroll to a
brisk stride. Then you extend your time to 40 minutes.
And so on. One guidepost after another...

And let's say that you've done well for two whole months,
and then you try to jog instead of walk and get all out of
breath, sore and tired. Did you fail?

Listen: Making mistakes ISN'T failure. Failure is
quitting. So did you fail? No. With a qualifier. You
can't fail if you continue trying, and if you attempt to
learn something from your setback. In this case, you just
tried to do too much too soon.

When I started climbing out of the hole I'd dug for myself
in life, it seemed like I "failed" even more than before.
I fell down a lot. After all, I was used to failing...
really failing.

And it hurt. Really bad sometimes.

But the big difference was that I quit quitting. I
started learning what I was doing wrong and corrected it.
And failing some more. And learning. And succeeding. And
failing and learning and succeeding again.

And I'm telling you that the procedure that I just shared
with you is an often used formula of success in all areas
of life. Millions of people have done this. Millions are
doing it today to change their lives right now.

You can, too.

Pick a goal. Doesn't matter what it is. Apply the
formula. And when you're tempted to quit, look back at the
guideposts that you've passed. Smile. Cry. And get
excited...

...Because you're on the right path.

Always Do Your Part--You'll Never Regret It

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"I've never known a man worth his salt who in the long run,
deep down in his heart, didn't appreciate the grind, the
discipline... I firmly believe that any man's finest hour--
this
greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear-- is that moment
when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies
exhausted on the field of battle victorious."
--Vince Lombardi

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Why should I try hard today?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Well I can't hope to say it any better than that master
motivator above, but I'll just add a few feelings about
what he said.

Raising children allows us to see the feelings that most
adults have when asked to do something difficult, but who,
with years of practice as adults, hide the fact that we're
bummed out about having to do it. Boy, you can see the
physiology of a child change immediately, can't you? They
can't believe their rotten misfortune at having to do this
task. We adults hide it better...sometimes.

And I'll bet you grumble sometimes too. I know I do.
Yes, yes. Don't be shocked. We ALL do it to varying
degrees, don't we?

But as is one of the major themes throughout your daily
messages, life's not about just playing and doing selfish
things that makes it valuable; it's the giving and the
sacrifice that puts your mark on this world. Soon you'll
be gone. There won't be any more "You" to worry about.

Those of you who still drive while you're wasted won't
like this story.

A few years ago, my wife and I were coming home from
seeing a movie, and we got behind a person who was
completely bombed out of their mind. Stopping in the
middle of a busy 3-lane highway, swerving all over, barely
missing dozens of cars... who all just drove by, getting
where they were going.

It was about 12:00 on a Saturday night, by the way. It
happened to be Prom night for a lot of local high schools.

I couldn't bear the thought of seeing the next day's
headlines about a group of teenagers killed by a drunk
driver.

I followed this person for about four miles and saw 35-40
very close calls with other cars. The 911 operator was on
the cell phone with me the whole time until the cops showed
up. The person didn't even pull over until he/she drove
another quarter mile, driving about 5 miles per hour with
the police car right behind them, lights a blazing!

Now, I had other things I wanted to do at that time (like
getting some sleep!), but someone probably would've gotten
killed without me following back a ways with my flashers
on, warning other motorists to be careful as they
approached this lunatic at 65-70 MPH, with him/her doing 0-
40.

I never got a thank you from anyone, but I saw it as my
duty, even if it wasn't in the plans.

My wife was scared as heck throughout the whole thing. I
sounded like a basketball play-by-play announcer while on
the phone with the 911 operator. "Oh, just missed them!
But he'll have another chance in a second. Ooooh!"

Quite a show.

I guess the message today is, do your part. Sacrifice.
Help someone else that needs it. Put your shoulder down
and work. It's good practice for the times when you'll
REALLY need all the determination you can muster. Try as
hard as you can at every moment.

Soon enough you'll be where you dream of being. You won't
get home any sooner just because you're thinking about it
constantly.

Thanks, Vince. You were right...

The Extra Mile



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"There is no joy in getting by on your job - doing as
little as you can. There is a LOT of pleasure in doing
more than you have to. 'And whosoever shall compel you to
go a mile, go with him twain,' says the Bible, wisely."
-Norman Carlisle

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"How will I be changed by doing my best at this task?
What will I think of myself?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

When we were doing the research for our audio program,
Financial Abundance Now!, I was stunned by a few bits of
information researchers Thomas Stanley and William Danko
had published in their 2 million copy best seller, 'The
Millionaire Next Door'.

Among their many remarkable insights gained by
interviewing first generation millionaires (not inherited)
for 20 years was that even though Russian households in
America account for only 1.1% of all households, 5.8% of
all households in America with a net worth of one million
dollars or more were of Russian ancestry.

So Russians in America are 5 times more likely to become
wealthy in America than the average American household.

It's a prosperity mindset. And that translates into
action and wise financial decisions.

Interestingly, in America, 80% of all wealthy households
are first generation rich. Only 20% are second generation
or beyond.

What does this mean?

Well, one thing it means, according to Stanley and Danko,
is that by the 2nd and 3rd generations most of the wealth
is usually gone. Pfffft! Spent.

See, if the kids are born here, the society orients them
not to the value of hard work, or of sacrificing for the
good of their family, not with teaching values of thrift.
We're conditioned here to be good consumers... to spend it.

All of it.

Hey, man. When the economy is in the doldrums and you're
in serious danger of losing your job, SPEND! Don't get
another job. Help the economy and spend all your spare
time spending all your money! Put other people to work
serving you... 'Cause you deserve a break today!

That's no joke.

Honestly, this session wasn't supposed to be about
finances. The actual topic revolves around the Empowering
Quote and Question. The subject is interchangeable. It
can be about money, relationships, career, health or
spirituality... you plug in your own topic.

Finances just provide an interesting backdrop to how the
typical person in America views tasks - any task besides
leisure pursuits.

Not to say we don't put in long hours. Studies show we
"work" longer than ever before. But our performance as it
compares to what we're capable of doing is, well... it
sucks.

The average person hates doing things that could actually
give them a better life - things that could give them true
freedom of choice.

Listen... the floor you've got to refinish, the walls that
you're painting, the book you have to read and the test on
those chapters are the greatest gift you could ever be
given.

I remember how I used to avoid labor of any kind.

My habitual inner thoughts were,

'How come I have to do this?'
'Gosh, they're picky. It's good enough.'
'Why can't someone else do this? He hates me.'
'I'm too good for this.'
'Oh, I can't wait until this is over.'
'I can't do that. It's too hard.'
'I'll never get this done.'
'What can I spend this money on?'
'The boss is gone. Let's take a break.'
'I'll do it tomorrow when it's cooler outside.'

And I woke up each day dumber than the day before.

Man, your tasks are a part of life. If you shirk your
responsibilities, other people may get hurt, but think of
it this way. You might "get out of" doing something, but
you are hurting yourself more than anyone else.

I was the laziest person alive. Many people told me that.
I was forced to live in a van because of it. I was drugged
out, drunk and stupid for years, yet with some neat
technology, turned it all around and now have choices than
99.999% of all living people don't have.

Why?

Because I began to believe that responsibilities were a
blessing instead of a curse.

Dirty floor? Wow! Cleaning it will be more practice at
being like people I admire... 'do it now' people.

Build a garage? Cool. Think of the space we'll have
after it's done. I'll have acquired some great skills, too.

Tearing down, moving and re-installing thirteen office
cubicles? Ooh, lots of work. But we'll be so much more
productive when it's done. Tons of benefits. Awesome!

What will I think of myself if I do the best job I'm
capable of? What will I think of myself if I put in a
halfway effort?

You see, when you do less than your best on a regular
basis, you see who you are. You can't hide from yourself.
Deep inside we all know what top performance looks like -
what it feels like inside.

And I'm telling you that your tasks aren't punishment from
the gods. They're valuable practice for when it really
matters. Every thing you do, no matter how small, creates
your character. Your self-image is built from how well or
how poorly you do the jobs in your life.
Your gorgeous blond hair doesn't improve your self-image.
Your actions do.

When you leave the kitchen table a mess every day, you're
creating a destiny. If you start lots of stuff, but finish
little, you're watching. You may be ignoring it
consciously, but your subconscious mind knows and one more
grain of sand is put on the "Loser" side of the scale in
your mind.

Get angry a lot? Ever wonder why? It's not because of
what others have done to you. It's often from watching
people in your same station in life gaining characteristics
and opportunities you wish you had but never made work.

It's impossible to act like a loser, to perform poorly at
even unimportant tasks and feel like a winner.

The truth is, there are no unimportant tasks. None.
Every one is practice for the next one, training to help
prepare you for more challenging, more rewarding
opportunities. Practice bad habits day in and day out, and
you cannot perform well or make correct decisions when you
need to.

Every little short cut you take - Every time you lie to
someone to cover up a mistake - Every time you take
something that isn't yours, YOU are watching. No, you may
not get "caught" by someone else. But you caught you.

And that is a whole lot worse.

Ever start to achieve success in some arena of life only
to sabotage it? Try to quit a habit but always go back to
it? Does this happen over and over?

It's probably because you've caught yourself failing so
often, that when you do start to succeed, since you now
don't see yourself as a success, your mind literally forces
the failure oriented behaviors.

I know today's session was a bit of a pummeling. But the
best coaches and leaders who ever lived don't pull punches.
You must assess yourself honestly and understand the
implications of every action you take, or you will
consistently be in spots you can't get out of. Success in
life comes from knowing how to duplicate success from one
area of life in another area. Master success in one area
and you've created the ability to do it in many other
parts. You just need to know the core formulas.

We talked about some critical areas just now. Pay
attention to them. It's vital to your life. Success and
happiness are not mysterious.

It can be predictable. Ask any Russian American.

Live Your Passion



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"I would be banging pillows, thinking I needed eight hours
of sleep. It bothered me for a long time until I found a
doctor who told me to find something I liked to do and consider
it a blessing. I like football."
-Jon Gruden (Head Coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What do I love doing that is beneficial to me and other
people?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Before I start, I want to make it clear that Coach
Gruden's quote is NOT used today to tell people who have
trouble sleeping, and whose quality of life is compromised
by it, that they should consider it a blessing.

What it DOES mean is that with all the spare time that
most of us have available, the choices that are too often
made are very unproductive and kill any chances of success
and happiness.

Many people don't have the luxury of a spare minute. But
when it comes to true spare time, do you spend it playing
video games, watching TV or sitting in a bar somewhere
hiding out from life?

If so, we've uncovered one MAJOR cause of feelings of
failure. True, wasting time can also be a symptom as well
as a cause, but nevertheless, different choices can and
should be made.

Jon Gruden chose to take his extra 3-4 hours per day and
turn himself into one of the greatest offensive minds in
the game of football. At 34 years old, he became the coach
of a professional team. Many of his players were older
than he was. A few years ago at 36, he was asked for I.D.
just to buy a beer at an Oakland A's game.

Top players all over the league would take pay cuts just
to play for this "kid"... because he's a winner. He pushes
his players to play with desire and passion.
We all like to be associated with winners.

So what's it take to be a winner?

A great place to start is looking at the lives of
successful people. Go to the library and skim the stories
about the lives of the famous. You'll find that they
didn't become known because they sit around. They're not
just lucky. They're not famous because of their glimmering
smile.

This is true even of 'super' models. There are tens of
thousands of women as beautiful as they are. But in
addition to their looks, the ones you see on all the
magazine covers are there because they've worked hard for
it.

After you've become thoroughly convinced that success has
little to do with luck, the second thing you need to do is
look at the thing you love to do the most. I don't care if
you're hooked up to oxygen tanks all day; you have
something you like to do.

So get on the net, join a club and get involved.

You don't have to be as unbalanced as Jon Gruden. Keep
your life together.

But above all else, get involved in the thing that lights
your fire. Without a passion in life, there is no spark.

Every day, I get emails from around the world thanking me
for my work. They come in because I have a blazing fire of
passion for what I do. I love it. I feel like one of the
luckiest people on the face of the earth.

But I work extremely hard at it.

Success in one area of life doesn't mean that everything
is perfect. When you are in the midst of chaos all the
time, you've got to keep up. You've got to strike a
balance.

But as things are changing all around you at warp speeds,
keep one eye on the part of it that you love. THAT part,
despite whatever isn't perfect, will keep your hopes alive,
your moods right and give you faith and energy to work on
the things that aren't yet how you'd like them.

And it all starts with a passion.

Do Unto Others...


------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Kindness it is that brings forth kindness always."
-Sophocles (447 B.C.)

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Could I gain greater cooperation right now by showing
genuine
kindness and respect than by demanding it?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

A couple days ago, I was watching 'Santa Claus is Coming
To Town' with my three year old son, and I noticed an
important principle of life playing out.

In the story, the village dictator (the Burgermeister) had
outlawed toys because he had fallen on a toy and broken his
leg. No child was to play with any toys or they would be
locked up.

Well, Kris Kringle (a.k.a. Santa Claus) was delivering
toys to all the kids, so he was branded an outlaw. Public
Enemy #1.

When Kris confessed to giving the town's children a bunch
of toys, he was to be arrested. In a flash of quick
thinking, he presented the Burgermeister with a toy--a yo-
yo.

For a moment, the Burgermeister began playing with the yo-
yo, reminiscing about his youth, until he was reminded that
he was breaking his own law. This gave Kris an opening to
escape...

...into the forest, which was the home of The Winter
Warlock, who captured Kris.

Again, Kris gave him a toy--a choo-choo train. This kind
act melted the heart of the warlock, who let Kris go.

Isn't this how it usually happens in your life?

If you aren't the type, yet, who can inspire the
cooperation of others because your kindness makes people
want to help you and be around you, then it's time to try
it out...

...And even get good at it.

But before you do, think back. And look around.

Who gets the admiration and support of others? Who do
people work harder for? Is it the one who brings in the
doughnuts for co-workers occasionally, the one who asks
respectfully or the one who rants and raves that nothing
gets done?

Who would you work harder for?

To make this easier to see, imagine how you would like to
be asked (not told) to do something.

Isn't it easier to take when you're asked to drop what
you're doing, if the person says something like this?:

"I know you're busy and this looks important, however I
need to ask you a big favor. Could you...?" Or,

"I wonder if I could ask you to take a few minutes to help
me with this...?" Or,

"I know you've got a lot to do, and I don't want you to
get behind on account of me, but I have to ask you to..."

Man, wouldn't you like to hear that?

What do you hear from the people who make your blood boil?
Things like:

"Get in here, I need your help!"
"You're working OT today, so cancel any plans you have."
"Get doing your homework now!"
"I need a ride and I have to be there in 15 minutes."

Boy, that makes me want to blow a gasket. How about you?

Also, this can be extended to times when we make mistakes.
Let's say someone made a big boo-boo. Of course, they get
called on it. The boss, co-worker, spouse, whoever it may
be loses their temper. They don't care why the mistake was
made.

What do most people do? They deny responsibility, of
course!

Aaarrrgh!

Mistakes are not death sentences. They're truly chances
to see where your weaknesses are... golden opportunities to
identify what you need to work on to make your health, your
business, your relationships and your finances better.

But what do most of us do?

"It wasn't me!! The copier was broken. They didn't
return my call. I was stuck in traffic." Etc.

Try this. When you make a big blunder, whether you're
alone or if someone else catches it, immediately admit it...

...Immediately. Gracefully.

This takes the wind out of the sails of the person who
wants to pounce you. If you admit a mistake before it's
even noticed by others, they'll likely react in a way
that's only about 10-20% as strong as they would if you
deny it or blame your circumstances for the error.

And...

Try not to repeat it. And smile. Because you can do this.

It's Official: Nothing Is Impossible



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"A lot of people didn't believe in us, but our players
believed in themselves and that's all that matters."
-Bill Belichick, head coach, New England Patriots

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Have others been counting me out? Have I?
Why have we all been wrong?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

It's now official.

Nothing is impossible.

The second largest underdog in Super Bowl history has won.

David slew Goliath.

All the doubters were wrong... including me.

All week long, every time I got into a conversation about
the upcoming game, I expressed how I felt that the Rams
were just too good, spouting off facts and statistics,
marveling at all those high-powered weapons they
possessed...

...forgetting all about desire.

The burning kind.

That is one thing most everyone, including yours truly
forgot about.

Look at yourself for a second...

It's easy to count yourself out, isn't it, when no one
believes in you?

Isn't it hard to go on when all you see is insurmountable
problems?

The Patriots refused to look at how impossible their task
seemed.

Instead they looked at their strengths. They focused on
what they had, not what they didn't. They had that burning
desire.

Adam Vinatieri, the Patriot kicker who ended any final
doubt with a 48-yard field goal as time expired, said his
sleep the night before the game was filled with dreams
about that exact moment, should it occur.

He said after the game, "I must have seen that kick 200
times the night before in my sleep. It always ended good."

If you're not a football fan, that's OK. This isn't about
football.

But if you've got a big challenge ahead of you and you
have lots of doubts about the outcome, do this...

...Read this past Sunday's newspaper. The same one where
all the experts said that there was no way the Rams would
lose.

This is important, because you must understand how futile
the task seemed, how invincible the Rams seemed, how the
Patriots didn't deserve to be there. One journalist even
predicted that the Rams would score over 100 points.

It supposedly was that hopeless.

So I ask you to read this because you must know that when
things look bleak for you and for people on your team, you
must not give up...

...No matter how seemingly impossible the task.

To flip your switch from lose to win, you must be a
possibility thinker. And the only way to do that is to
constantly be reminded in as many ways as possible that
nothing is impossible.

Ignite that burning desire.

Moods and shifts and cycles and tides and momentum
threaten us every single day. They can take away our
beliefs and our convictions.

Try this habit out. In your local paper's sports section,
save the stories of underdogs beating heavily favored
opposition.

Re-read them regularly.

And set your goals.

Whenever you make a mistake, a wrong decision, or when
someone counts you out, pull the stories out and reaffirm a
new belief...

Nothing is impossible!

Even for you.

You Show Real Class When You Do This...

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote 
 
------------------------------
"I will utter what I believe today, if it should contradict all I said yesterday."
 -Wendell Phillips
------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------
"What would I think of (Joe) if he came in right now and told me he was wrong about the thing he fought so hard for earlier?"  
------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------
I don't know about you, but today's question just blows me away. Let's say that your employee or co-worker failed to do something very important. And for whatever reason, let's also say that you happened not to be in the most resourceful state of mind. In fact you were in a downright rotten mood. Now, when you're feeling like this, you don't always act the way you want to act, right? Little things can get you going. Possibility? You're not as forgiving when you feel like this. You're simply not in the mood for failure or excuses. Instead, you want to assert your authority, tell 'em what you think. You're ready for a fight. If you hear any crap, you can't be held liable for what you do or say. Bring em on! You call the perpetrator into the room to read them the riot act. You ask why such and such wasn't done. You tell 'em how important it was. Your voice starts to get shaky. "Please just argue with me," you think. And what do they do? They agree with you. Yup. They start in. "You're absolutely right. I should've done that. There is absolutely no excuse, so I won't give you one. I could've done it, but I didn't. It's my fault totally." So what do you say? "Well, it's not all that bad..." Can you believe it? They took all the joy out of it for you. You couldn't possibly rip them the new one you had planned. You must be seen as benevolent now. Merciful. Certainly not the three-headed monster that you'd be if you kept thrashing at them. I probably shouldn't admit this, but when I was in direct sales in the late 80's and early 90's, I spent a lot of time driving between appointments... and I did my share of speeding. I scheduled myself tight and was in a hurry everywhere I went. In a space of about 3 years, I got pulled over for speeding 12 times. And I swear to you, I talked my way out of every one of those situations. Of course #13 was unlucky for me, but still... 12 times in a row! I did it by doing what we're talking about here. I admitted my error... told them that I wasn't in any kind of a hurry and that I wasn't paying attention. I was in the wrong. I deserved a ticket. So they let me go! It just wasn't any fun for them. We usually ended up laughing together. One of those times I was going 35 miles per hour over the speed limit. Imagine that! And yes, I've changed my ways and don't do that any more. Now obviously, you don't want to be making the same mistake over and over. However, there are often situations where mistakes and setbacks are built into the job by nature. If you constantly argue and debate and deny and point the finger somewhere else... well, who likes to hear that? Do you? When you pull this, you can almost guarantee a fight. When people do it to you, YOU don't like it. So don't you do it... Because when you do, you look just as dumb as the people who do it to you. And you will get no mercy. If you mess up, admit it sincerely... and try not to repeat it. But if you do it again, admit it again. And learn again. And you CANNOT say things like "ALLRIGHT, I MADE A MISTAKE!" in an angry, sarcastic tone said obviously just to shut the other person up. You know what it means when others are doing that and so do they. Mean it. This is a small change, but it has GIGANTIC implications in your life. Because you're probably making little mistakes and inaccuracies all day long. It's called being human. Admit yours (but don't ever call yourself stupid) and do your best not to repeat them and you'll gain the respect and admiration of all the people in your life... ...Including yourself.

Stop Whining and Start Shining

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------
"You can overcome anything if you don't bellyache."
-Bernard M. Baruch
------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------
"Don't I see my solutions easier and faster when I'm calm and relaxed?"
------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------
One of my subscribers sent me a story that deserves re- telling. So here goes. One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was very old and the well needed to be covered up anyway. And since it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey, he invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over he edge of the well and trotted off! Hmmm. Let me ask you a question... Today are you likely to get some dirt thrown on you? How about tomorrow? And the next day? Well, that realization will either get you depressed, or you'll feel like you just got the everlasting key to happiness. Gosh, I hope you choose the second reaction. Because I'll let you in on a little secret... There is a solution to every problem. And as each one is on the way to getting fixed, it may be painful. As soon as that donkey stopped bellyaching, he realized what his answer was. There is no way, when we are upset, that we can think clearly enough to come up with the answers to the challenges we are faced with. And why do people get upset when they have oh-so- predictable challenges? Because most folks refuse to believe the basic tenet of life, which is... EVERYBODY HAS PROBLEMS, EVERYDAY!!! "That can't be!! John is always in a good mood!! He doesn't have the kind of problems like I do!!! He couldn't possibly!!!" Look, in a few minutes someone just might burst through your door and tell you of some huuuuge "problem" that just happened. So instead of crying, do this... Get the facts. Write down all the options. Weigh the consequences with the potential results of each option. And make a decision!!! Just do that. Wait 'til later to cry. Because your tears later will have a greater likelihood of being tears of joy over a successful effort that fixed that rotten "problem" than it would be if the tears came earlier. And remember, life isn't out to get you.
Just keep cool. And shake it off.

Dream... And Make It Come True

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
 ------------------------------
"Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead."
-Louisa May Alcott

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------
"What can I fantasize about achieving in my life beyond the ordinary?"
 
------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

It was back in '84 or '85, I think. The new cars had just come out, and one of the new safety features was a change in the rear taillights. Now, instead of just two backlights, there was an additional one in the rear window. This is so that drivers can tell that the automobile in front of them is stopping even if they can't see the lower lights, for any reason. To me, it was an indicator of wealth. You see, I was broke, broke, broke. The way I saw it was, if you could afford a new car--the kind with the new headlight in the rear window-you had made it. I'd project myself years into the future... as I was surely buying my next old junker. If it had one of those lights, I'd have reached the highest level of success that I could hope for. I couldn't even imagine anything more than that. My images of the future were of struggle and hardship. I would hear imaginary conversations all going wrong. Nothing ever worked out in my mind. So I never even considered taking any kind of actions that would transport me to a better life. I never tried hard at anything. It wasn't until I started using affirmations that things began to change. After I made my first audio, my life really started to morph into something completely different. Now, I know that many people have trouble with affirmations. "I can't do affirmations," is a common belief. That's wrong, because you naturally affirm all day long with every thought you have. The problem is that you just don't do it CORRECTLY. I couldn't imagine being successful in a sales career. So naturally my first attempt was with sales and career affirmations. Soon my sales skills (and income) grew by leaps and bounds. I can't stress enough that to succeed at anything, whether it be career, health, relationships, finances or education, you've got to see what you want. You absolutely must be able to imagine yourself having your goal... You must AFFIRM that you already have it, that you're worthy of it, that you can have it. See the enjoyment of it. Feel it. Imagine yourself holding hands with someone. Imagine looking in your bank account and seeing all the zeroes... after another number, of course. See yourself getting the A's and enjoying the process of the studying... of the learning. Notice how it feels. See the mistakes that are bound to happen as falling off you like rain. Mistakes will still happen. And you have to see them as temporary... as fixable. Most people visualize and imagine success, but when things don't go right, they quit... and exclaim that it doesn't work for them. Wrong! It does work. But if there are 7 steps to success at something and you take the first six, suffer a setback and give up, then you don't get the success. That's not a horrible thing if you will just wake up, splash some cold water on your face and admit that whatever temporary setback you had was your fault on some level. Then start your visualizing again. And if you blame others for your failures, you're doomed. Done. Finished... ...until you wake up. I believe it's never too late to wake up. But the longer you're asleep to the fact that, no matter how many areas of life you may have under control, the part of your life that just doesn't work is a reflection of decisions you make, the longer you will fail in that one area. Sure, there may be other factors that ARE out of your hands. But you can't blame them. Or you'll continue to fail. Accept responsibility. Keep your vision alive. And sooner or later, you'll reach it.

If You Get A Second Chance



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote

------------------------------

"If you ever get a second chance at life, you've got to go
all the way."
- Lance Armstrong (5 time winner of the Tour de France)

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What must I do to increase my determination and improve?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

It's now official.

Lance Armstrong has won the Tour de France for a record
tying fifth time.

The most difficult, grueling sporting event in the world.

He survived 2,100 miles over two mountain ranges in 20
days, the stomach flu, dehydration, crashes & near crashes
as well as the weather to do the unthinkable. Three weeks
and over 83 hours of pushing himself past exhaustion. I
can't even imagine what that must take physically and
mentally to run that race.

To most people, it's just two words, "bike race," that
don't mean too much.

But in life you've got to grab inspiration wherever you can.

To me, his record setting performance is just one more
push to make this lifetime a masterpiece. One more
confirmation that with determination, anything can be
achieved. Absolutely anything.

Here's a guy who in 1996 was diagnosed with an advanced
form of testicular cancer that had spread to his abdomen,
lungs and brain.

Because of its spread, he was given only a 50-50 chance of
survival.

But he had aggressive surgery and chemo treatments that
alone would've killed the average person, and was
pronounced cancer free in 1997. Then began the arduous
road back to health.

A few months ago, I was watching a 1997 video of him
training after his surgery. He had no hair and you could
see the U-shaped scar on top of his head where they went in
to remove part of the cancer. He said training was
difficult... he would get wiped out after only an hour and
a half on the bike.

An hour and a half, and he got wiped out!

Most people are ready to quit after 2 minutes.

After the treatment and surgery, he was no different than
anyone else... actually much worse off physically than
practically anyone alive.

But he had Lance Armstrong's mind...

...the mind that made him the best cyclist in the world.

You see, that is what separates the winners from the
losers in life.

Everyone who knows of Lance knows of him as a winner, but
in his first Tours he didn't do so well.

Here's how he did in his previous Tour races:

'93 - Did not finish
'94 - Did not finish
'95 - 36th
'96 - Did not finish
'97 - Did not enter
'98 - Did not enter
'99 - 1st
'00 - 1st
'01 - 1st
'02 - 1st
'03 - 1st

He didn't even finish 3 times. See? We're talking about
a grueling race!

But success in life is about how many times you pick
yourself up, not how many times you fail.

Since I was "this" close to using another quote today,
I'll include it. Here it is: "A winner must first know
what losing's like." Billionaire publisher Malcolm Forbes
said that. So he knew something about winning, I'd say.

You see, so many people I work with are just so scared of
losing that they just won't get involved in life and risk
falling down... of looking foolish... of losing what little
they have.

But you must.

The good stuff is on the other side of failure. You just
can't get there without it.

It hurts, sure it does.

Those months I spent in the van hurt worse than I can go
into right now. And lots of risk went into getting out and
creating an actual life. And without failure there is no
success.

None.

I've been reading the press coverage of this year's Tour
extensively, and I read a quote of one of Lance's fans
saying that this is the most excited she's ever been in her
life.

And I thought about how sad that is.

Someone else's achievement, someone they've never met -
and it's the most thrilling event in their life.

Look, I don't care if it's the World Cup, the Super Bowl
or little green men landing on Earth, the most thrilling
moment in your life should be from something YOU achieve.

And there is inspiration all around every day. You just
have to open your eyes. It's constant and never ending.

Tell yourself that you are prepared to look stupid a dozen
times today. And when you accomplish the first one, find
out what you can learn from it. After your twelfth stupid
action, you should have learned twelve new lessons that
hopefully made you smarter and better prepared for tomorrow.

Are you getting this?

That's how you use failure... to learn.

Lance did.

He failed and failed and failed.

But because he used his failure to learn...

...he got smarter and smarter and smarter.

Without the failure, he wouldn't be so dominant today.

Without the cancer, he may not have gotten so mentally
strong so as to be so unbeatable.

Unless this is an unconscious habit of yours already, do
this:

Every single time you mess something up, miss a deadline,
miss a sale, lose a race or a game, get angry when you
shouldn't or any other kind of screw up, write it down and
ask yourself today's empowering question.

You will have answers.

Act on those answers, and you'll grow so fast, learn so
much and improve your life skill so completely that you'll
look back on your life a year from now and shake your head
in amazement.

And don't mourn all the years you didn't do this.

Just get excited. Let go of the failures. Use them to
learn and let them go.

OK? OK!

Imagine That!



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Something almost magical happens when people break
through the obstacles that hold them back and discover what
is truly inside them."
-Brian Biro (from Beyond Success)

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What can I achieve today if I make just a little shift
in my belief about what is possible?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Brian Biro, the former coach of a national swim team, was
about to coach his last meet.

One of his young swimmers was a girl named Allison, who
despite good natural speed, always "died" at the end of
races. Finally, after years of just missing the Junior
Olympics before she moved up in age brackets, she made the
final spot (by one hundredth of a second) on the team for
her only event, the 100 meter butterfly... seeded last out
of 64 other girls.

She was just happy to be there and felt absolutely no
pressure. So in warm-ups with no undue expectations, she
turned in her best 25-meter time ever.

Brian got an idea...

When he told her what her time was, she was bubbling over
with enthusiasm. He asked her to remember how she felt as
she was swimming... to remember how high on the water she
felt. This got her in an incredible state of excitement.
She couldn't wait for her race.

They had it all set up. She was to get into the same
excited mental state she was in at the beginning of her
recent sprint. Then, to give her the strength at the end
of the race so she would finish strong, at the 75-meter
mark, Brian was going to be waiting. He would yell, "NOW!"
When she heard it, she was to pretend that she had just
dived into the water in her most recent personal record-
breaking sprint.

In her race, Allison exploded off the gates.
By the 25-meter mark, this last seeded swimmer, had opened
up a one-length lead on her competitors. Approaching the
75-meter mark the lead was two lengths.

By now, all her teammates had joined the coach beside the
pool, screaming wildly, cheering her on. When she reached
75 meters, Brian dropped his hand and 100 voices screamed
in unison, "NOW!!!!!"

She poured it on.

When she finally touched the wall, she looked around.
There were no other swimmers nearby. She thought she had
finished last and that everyone had gotten out of the pool!!

Actually, she had won the race by a giant margin, dropping
10 full seconds off her personal best. 10 seconds in a 100-
meter race!

With tears in his eyes, Allison's father asked Brian,
"What did you do to her?" Brian said, "SHE did it."

That day, he had changed his coaching with Allison. In
his frustration with her habit of sputtering at the end of
races, he had started his own habit of saying, "One of
these days, you're not going to die."

That day he changed, by helping her focus on what she
wanted instead of what she didn't want.

When we fail to get what we want in most situations, it's
often because we're focusing on not failing.

Sports psychologists have been training athletes for
decades now in imagining the perfect performance. Mental
rehearsal. And world records have continued to fall in
every category of human physical performance.

Focus on what you want...

See it over and over. Get in the right state and you can
achieve almost anything. The words will just come to you.
You'll magically feel wonderful... precisely when you have
to. The right actions will come easily. They'll be fun.
You'll achieve your personal best.

And you'll get what you want when you want it more
predictably... After all, when you do this a few times and
you start winning more consistently, you'll want to
continue this mental habit forever, right?

Today's Empowering Quote

"When nothing seems to help, I look at a stonecutter
hammering away at his rock, perhaps 100 times without as
much as a crack showing in it. Yet, at the 101st blow it
will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow
that did it, but all that had gone before."
-Jacob A. Riis

Resolutions...

That's what new years are for, aren't they? New beginnings.

"This is the year that I'm going to get in shape, quit the
bad habit, start my new business, get better grades..."

And by January 14th, what usually has occurred?

Complete withdrawal of the New Year's Day resolution.
Back to the old ways.

Let's see what does resolution, or resolve really mean?

Webster's defines it as this:

Resolve - To form a purpose; to make a decision;
especially, to determine after reflection; as, to resolve
on a better course of life.

Hmmm.

I notice that it doesn't say, "To try something out for a
while."

No. To resolve is to form a purpose. To achieve
something as part of a bigger plan.
So it would seem to me that to achieve anything
worthwhile, even crucial, you would need to keep in mind
the 'Big Picture.'

You must continually ask yourself why you're doing this
thing. You need to know why you're giving up all that
luscious chocolate, or the television, or the gambling.

It must go back to the word "Purpose." Isn't that true?

No purpose means no resolve. A BIG purpose makes it
easier to stay the course.

I mean if there are no big, emotion-stirring benefits at
the end AND along the way, why would you put forth any
effort?

You wouldn't...

And that's why so many New Year's Day resolutions are
quickly forgotten.

Let's make a switch. What do you say?

In fact, not just now, but when we want anything big,
whether it be some material thing, health goals,
relationship goals, let's focus on some new stuff.

Namely, what's truly in it for you?

If you have no reasons, ones that you can really get
behind and defend when that little voice tells you that
it's OK to slip, you'll give in every time.

You must keep your eye on the benefits. They need to be
good.

What are the emotional benefits? Write them down. How
will you feel when you reach your goal? If it's a long-
term goal, how will you feel as you're progressing?
Imagine it often.

This could be crucial in keeping your resolve.

How will your relationships be affected if you reach your
goal? Imagine it.

Would anyone else like to see you succeed? How would it
benefit them? Would you like that?
Any career benefits? Would it mean more money? How much?
Prestige? New office? How does this feel?

Any physical benefits? Less pain? Smaller dress size?
How would it make you feel?

Write down ALL the benefits, even if it takes you days or
weeks to think of them all. Carry this list with you and
read it often.

Think back now: Have you made any big resolutions to stop
some long-term bad habit or to start a new long-term good
habit?

Have you ever stuck with them?

So don't just read this and forget about it. This is a
formula for life success that you're being given. And more
than an idea that can only affect a small inconsequential
part of your life, this is HUGE!

This kind of habit, skill and "resolve" generating
activity can affect every single part of your life...
forever.

And it will help develop your character.

The dictionary calls character "A description of a
person's attributes, traits, or abilities."

What are yours right now?

Well, I'll tell you, if you can stick to even one
important resolution or goal, right to the end, because of
constantly keeping your focus on the benefits, then your
personal attributes, traits and abilities will all grow in
direct proportion to your commitment to keep those benefits
firmly in front of you in vivid, living color.

You CAN do it. I know you can.


Happy New Year!

Let's make this year your best year ever!

Make this a powerful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mission is to bring joy to my world. I give my attention
to joy so that it expands.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
What a beautiful mission! What you give your attention to
expands. If you give your attention to lack, lack expands.
If you give your attention to joy, joy expands. If you give
your attention to fighting disease, you expand fighting
disease as well as both fighting and disease. If you give
our attention to abundance, abundance expands. This is a
Universal Law. The Universe interprets your giving your
attention to something as your interest in experiencing more
subjects similar to that one. After all, you surely would
not give your attention (which is your energy) to anything
that you do not want to experience, would you? Think about
it.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, what has YOUR attention today? Is it joy? agony?
satisfaction? pain? What? After determining what has your
attention, consider...... Is that where you desire your
attention to be? Is that thing worthy of your attention?
If your answer is no, change the focus of your attention.
If you accomplish nothing else today but to shift your
attention from what you DO NOT want (e.g., pain,
discomfort, regret, loss) to what you DO want, this
promises to be a powerful day.

School Is Never Out



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Phil Jackson knows how to coach me. He gets me angry.
When I get angry, I dominate. It's perfect."
-Shaquille O'Neal

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Who else can I learn important skills and lessons from
now?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

In today's quote, Shaquille O'Neal, the All-Star center
with the Los Angeles Lakers, underscores an incredibly
important point. And that is this...

No matter what your individual accomplishments are, no
matter how good you think you are at something, you can
still get better. Sometimes a LOT better.

Shaq was already named as one of the 50 greatest players
of all time.

When he wants a basket or a rebound, he won't be denied.

But the problem is that while he has always had the
physical skills to be great, his decisions haven't always
been the greatest.

One problem was, his mind was often somewhere else besides
the game. When that happens, he might get his points but
his team would lose... even though he may have scored 40 or
50.

Another one is, for years he was basically a one-man show.
His teammates were not made better because Shaq was
playing. Result? Seven years... no championships.

What the addition of Phil Jackson as coach has meant,
besides back-to-back championships, is Shaq now plays a
more team oriented game... the kind that makes everyone
better. He now has his head in the game more. He's less
selfish. He's a better listener... more teachable.

Because no matter how good you are at some task or
profession, you can't possibly push yourself or motivate
yourself as well as a coach or teacher can do it for you.

It's interesting that Shaq made this statement, because
recently he was extremely angry at Phil for pushing him too
hard.

But he's to be admired, because he again realized that
championships are the goal.

It's often hard to take orders from people, especially
when you don't agree with them.

But keep in mind that it's almost unheard of to self-teach
your way to excellence through high school, college or a
business career. Guidance is the most valuable thing about
institutions of learning and business. Deadlines are
usually better enforced by someone other than ourselves.

Willpower, quite often, is anything but powerful.

This is why self-help info products and gadgets don't
usually produce the change in people that they want. An
exercise bike can't force you to get on it. You have to do
that by yourself.

When I talk about seeing each day as a day to learn, much
of that learning must come from simple observation.

Watch people.

Listen to those who get a lot done. Listen to their
words. Ask about what motivates them. Ask them about how
they get over their problems and how they 'use' them to
carry on.

Yes. I said USE their problems.

Most people have challenges and they are seen as problems,
excuses, valid reasons to fail.

Effective people see them as motivation.

How?

By realizing that EVERYONE has challenges.

Just because you have some tragedy doesn't mean you're
cursed. It means you have to get over it. It means that
when you do get over it, you will go on with valuable
experience that will help you in the future.

You have been given another mental tool.

If you see challenges and tragedies as legitimate excuses
to hide, to quit, to fail...

...then you don't get the valuable experience. You will
be less, not more, in the future.

You'll be less able to handle it again, when life hands
you another big challenge... and another.

And life will. You can count on it.

So don't beg for life to be different than this. Because
it won't change.

And that's good.

See this as one of the great mysteries unveiled for you
and you'll be richer and happier by multiples.

See it as unwelcome news and you'll continue to hide, to
quit, to fail.

Don't Be A Slave To Guilt


------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"We cling to our bad feelings and beat ourselves with the
past when what we should do is let go of it, like Peter
did. Once you let go of guilt, then you go out and change
the world."
-James Carroll

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What do I feel guilty about? Why? Isn't it about time I
let it go?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Whew! There are a lot of things to feel guilty about
aren't there?

We could feel bad about our thoughts, our mistakes, our
failures. We didn't try hard enough. We didn't make a
decision soon enough and lost out on something we wanted.
We invested too heavily in one company, and its stock
bombed.

Something we said or did deeply hurt another person. We
told an off-color joke. We were responsible to hundreds or
even thousands of others and somehow, we let them down.
It's endless.

And we die a thousand deaths over it.

It's true that our thoughts, words and actions can have
negative consequences.

Fortunately, it's these consequences, thought out
beforehand, that keep us from doing many things that WOULD
hurt others as well as ourselves.

But we can't foresee EVERY bad result coming down the
pike. To err is human, as they say.

Knowing that, though, doesn't always (and for some people,
it never does) make it feel any better when we make a
blunder. Soooo, we get the guilt... which can be very
useful.

But it's when we get overrun with guilt that we just get
paralyzed, unable to forgive ourselves for this "heinous"
act we performed.

As James Carroll said, St. Peter was able to forgive
himself for denying Jesus and move on to take actions that
changed the course of the world in a positive way. If he
had forever thought himself horrible and unable to make
amends, our world could be very different today.

We're all exactly the same as Peter.

So many people make a mistake or say something in a fit of
rage, and forever after define themselves by it.

We say that we ARE stupid, or we ARE a bad person, a lazy
person, a selfish person. Guilt literally can put us
behind bars in the sense that it takes away our freedom to
choose our future actions.

We too often don't want to risk these mistakes again, so
we stay quiet. We don't voice our ideas, in case they
wouldn't work out... Because if they didn't work, not only
would we feel stupid, but we would feel overly responsible
for the consequences.

Yes, guilt and shame can be a vicious circle that can
literally shackle our potential.

But because it's invisible, we usually don't see it. We
just think we're being wise... that we're protecting
ourselves.

Have you ever wondered how people who are in the spotlight
or who have been successful in business deal with their
impactful decisions that turn out badly?

Well, the trouble with being well known is that your
mistakes and blunders are also well known.

So how do these people treat their gaffs?

They put them in a perspective that minimizes them. And
as long as this perspective allows them to learn to not
repeat the same mistakes over and over, they can go on and
continue to be a top performer in their field... which can
benefit themselves and others.

What would happen if a popular actress had a movie flop
and decided she was the cause? She may never want to risk
that kind of failure again. She may start making
incredibly bad career decisions... decisions that could
potentially affect the flow of hundreds of millions of
dollars.

If you are responsible for someone else's tremendous pain
or bad situation, how do you go on and achieve a high
degree of success, happiness or wealth without feeling
guilty?

You don't. Feel the guilt. And learn from it.

But when you've learned what you need, give the guilt a
shape, pop it in a jar, seal it up and throw it away.

Forgive yourself.

All our products are filled with statements about letting
go of guilt and past hurts because unless you do, there is
no risking, no effort, no accomplishment...

...And in the event that you do accomplish much, without
self-forgiveness there is little joy in what you've done.
You just feel guilty about it.

There are too many good books on the subject for me to
steer you toward any one in particular, but do some study
on it. Learn about how guilt is affecting you...

...Because you can be certain of one thing. Guilt is
negatively affecting your daily decisions to some degree.

And the extent to which you can lessen it is the exact
measure of additional accomplishment and joy you will have
in your life.

Many people will NEVER forgive you for your actions.
That's why YOU have to.

Right now, think of something great that you experienced
in the last ten years that you had absolutely no concept of
before you experienced it. Remember what it was like
during the experience? Stunning. Exhilarating. You were
awe struck.

Well, when you can let go of the things you've done and
move on with a clean slate, you will feel something that is
possibly ten times greater than what you experienced back
then.

Yes You Can!



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"I've said many times, to myself, 'This is going to be no
problem. I've done this before.'"
--Tiger Woods

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What memory can I use in this situation that will give me a
reference point for the right attitude towards a successful
outcome?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Man, what a great day this is going to be, huh?

Ready?

Say yes...

It's very well known that Tiger Woods uses a very specific
kind of self talk. He talks himself into staying calm at
times when others are literally trembling inside (outside,
too!). He's not a wizard. He simply talks to himself in a
way that encourages him. He says, "I can" and that type of
talk opens up the door marked "memory of past success."

And you know what?

When you talk to yourself, you listen. No matter what you
say, you're listening... and recording it in your memory.

And when you put thoughts into your mind, they CAN be
rejected. However, if you do it often enough and they're
the right thoughts, your mind - your subconscious mind -
will ultimately bring you around to believing whatever you
tell it.

How many times have you heard a thing-it could be anything-
-and your first reaction was one of complete disbelief:

You can earn your degree-"I don't have the time"

You can be a size 6 again-"Yeah, right. I've had two kids
and just can't lose that weight."

You can be in really great shape-"Who, me? I get out of
breath climbing one flight of stairs."

You can advance at work-"I'm just a pee-on. No one
notices me."

Some things are just hard to believe at first...

...Until you've been exposed to those same thoughts over
and over and over again. Advertisers know this--that's why
the same commercials are run constantly.

Soon, after some repetition, you open up a little to the
possibility.

"Could be..."

Then, perhaps your belief gets a little boost.

"Hmmmn, well, maybe I do have time to take one course at
the community college at night."

"You know, I've just cut back on soda and I've lost 3
pounds!"

"Walking around the block with my neighbor is kind of fun,
and I don't get as winded as I used to."

"I've been trying harder at my job and guess what-the boss
paid me a very nice compliment on my work!"

At this point, a wonderful cycle has begun. As your
belief gets stronger, you'll do a little more, then your
belief gets stronger, then you'll do a little more, etc.

Positive, encouraging and optimistic self-talk is
literally the software program that can flip your switch
from lose to win in any area of life. It may not be "true"
today. But with the right words and the right emotion -
and with repetition - you simply must change. It's
unavoidable. Your brain won't let you lie to yourself for
too long before it says, "Ya know, I DO like getting up at
5:30 to exercise." Bingo!

This is a very important topic, so we'll have to pick it
up later... very soon, in fact.

In the meantime, use some or all of these statements below
to actually help to re-script your old worn out beliefs
about yourself and help make you LIKE the process of
changing your unsupportive, false and disempowering beliefs.

Who Are Your Role Models?


------------------------------

Today's Empowering Quote


------------------------------

"If each of us can be helped by science to live a hundred
years, what will it profit us if our hates and fears, our
loneliness and our remorse will not permit us to enjoy
them?"
-David Neiswanger

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What tiny step can I take today that will get me another
degree closer to overcoming the fear that stops me?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

The strange thing about education is that you never know
where you'll get it and what shape it will take.

I know that a lot of people have the mistaken belief that
who your parents are and what happens to you during your
first few years dictates what you can and can't become in
life. I hope by now that, even if you haven't reached your
potential, you've grabbed onto the belief that you CAN
change anything about yourself you wish with the right
attitudes and actions.

I know far too many people now who continue to teach me
every day that growth can and should continue right up 'til
the day we die.

I recently came across a study by psychologist Robert
O'Connor on socially withdrawn pre-school children. He
wanted to see if he could reverse the pattern of social
isolation in children so that it wouldn't create persistent
difficulties in social comfort and adjustment through
adulthood.

He created a 23-minute video with 11 different scenes.
Each one began by focusing on a solitary child who watched
the other children participate in an activity. In each
scene, the child joined the group to the enjoyment of all.

O'Connor then went to a number of pre-schools and selected
the most severely withdrawn children and showed them his
film.

The results were dramatic...
In each case, these children immediately began to interact
to the same degree of sociability as the normal children in
the group. And what was even more astonishing was that a
follow-up 6 weeks later showed each of these children, who
had viewed this single video only once, were now leading
their schools in levels of social activity.

On the other side...

...the control group, the socially isolated children who
didn't see the video, were as withdrawn as ever.

What this study and others like it strongly suggest is
that when we have fears and barriers to achievements, it's
important that we see other people similar to ourselves
succeeding in spite of their difficulties. This teaches
our brains that if they can do it, so can we.

Marketers have known this for years. But what I want for
you is to be able to control your own thoughts, beliefs and
actions as well as the commercials do.

I know this probably sounds like a broken record by now,
but here I go again... Read the biographies of successful
people. Read about the people who were born in the back
rooms of shanties, people who couldn't afford shoes, yet
rose up to levels of success that they alone believed they
could achieve.

When you meet people who obviously have achieved some
degree of accomplishment, ask them how they did it. Find
out their beliefs. Tell them what you want to do. Almost
without exception, you'll hear from these people that,
while the effort was rarely easy, you've just got to
believe that it's in you to achieve great things.

One thing I found out from all my mentors (even if they
were only my mentors for 5 minutes) is that they like to be
asked about their struggle to climb the mountain.

Ask people about their success and you'll likely have
their attention for a good long time. Once you do,
possibly your only challenge then is keeping the
conversations from stretching into the night.

My point is this... Just like those children, who probably
thought, 'Those kids could do it and so can I,' you can do
whatever you want to achieve, too. And there's hardly
anything as motivating as seeing a person who crawled from
desperation and poverty to become a happy-to-be-alive
success story.

Use the power of role modeling. It will never let you down.

people in similar situations, he thought it was a death
sentence...and that it wouldn't be long.

Many situations like that can cause a feeling of
hopelessness. I know. We all know.

But when things look down, that's the time to start
looking for answers. You simply must. When it appears
like you have no way out, what do you have to lose by
sucking it up and putting everything you have left into
beating the odds? What?

Never count yourself out. It's almost ALWAYS too soon to
count yourself out.

In doing the research for our program I Am Healed Now!, I
was amazed to read study after study showing what the mind
has done to heal the bodies of people who were left for
dead. Doctors are often left scratching their heads when
someone who isn't "supposed" to recover comes out of it.
The word 'miracle' is often used.

Surely they are miracles, but these miracles often leave
clues. Success at ANYTHING leaves tracks. God helps those
who help themselves, right?

The body and mind are one. What the mind imagines
(visualizes), the body carries out. And not just in
healing itself.

Success in any venture is no different.

This is something you do all the time. You visualize
thousands of times per day. You're so USED to visualizing
everyday events so often that you may not realize that
you're doing it, but you are. It could be something as
simple as going to the kitchen to get an apple. You
picture it and then you carry out what you pictured.

The key to ultra success is to visualize like you do all
day long, but for the things that you want in life. Your
goals. Your aims. Your dreams. This is where faith comes
in too. This is where your already great visualization
skills will help you succeed where you'd be tempted to
think that you can't.

But most importantly, (and this is the most difficult
part), when some verification comes that what you've
visualized hasn't quite happened yet the way you want, you
MUST NOT quit. You must keep going, and make your vision
stronger than ever.

Winners don't quit. That's why they win.

If you've been a quitter until now, admit it and get off
your backside. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start
up.

You're going to fall down dozens or even hundreds of
times. That's life. But DON'T you quit... even if at
first it appears hopeless.

When successful people in all areas of life are talked
about, they are often called people of vision. They see
what they want or they imagine the conversations before
they succeed. They keep the vision and the discussions in
their mind. That is what keeps them going in the face of
defeat after defeat.

I get letters daily from people who say they lost hope. I
say they lost hope LONG before they recognized it. Listen
to your inner voice right from the beginning of tasks and
journeys. Are you telling yourself it won't work? Do you
tell yourself that you can't? Listen to yourself all day.
Every minute.

This isn't only about health. It's not just about
business. It's about your every moment.

If we were never to have another minute together, ever,
and you were only to take this one last bit of info with
you and you used it religiously, then you would have a
skill that could carry you to heights that you can't even
dream about right now.

This skill of awareness of your thoughts and pictures
would not only give you success today, but prepare you for
even greater successes tomorrow as well.

Join me. See what you want clearly. Keep the visions
there. Visit them often, preferably when you're very
relaxed with your eyes closed...

... And miracles will happen; every day

Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"The tragedy of man is what dies inside himself while he
still lives."
-Albert Schweitzer

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"How can I see, or what can I do about, this situation
so that it can be a true healing and a strengthening
instead of a weakening or a tearing down?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

September 14, 2001

It is with a heavy heart that I write today's letter. No
words or encouragement can erase the circumstances and
sadness of the last few days (9/11/01).

This evil wants us all to hate one another, to mistrust
and hurt each other more. I have faith in us all to not
let that happen.

A colleague mentioned to me how tough it must be to be a
motivational writer right now. I could only agree that I
felt somewhat helpless in being able to make much of a
difference to anyone today.

But it later occurred to me that given the tens of
thousands of subscribers to Your Day to Win, I could help.

If you're reading this and you believe in the power of
prayer, then please pray that the events occurring around
the U.S. and other countries in retaliation against
innocent people of Arab descent stop right now. That's
exactly what those evil cowards want. They will only be
happy if we start to unravel and end up at war with our
neighbors. So please pray for that to end. I'm convinced
that prayer is the strongest force there is. So please
join with me to end the hostilities. We can't let them win.

You must know this about yourself... that you can still
look at your neighbors and see friends, no matter the color
of their skin, their faith, or their clothing. They didn't
do this.

It's already time to trust again and to believe in the
goodness of our planet's citizens. We are all hurting now.
But we all must strengthen our resolve to continue and to
find the good in life and in others.

And most importantly, please believe in your ability to
carry on. No one thing is bigger than your ability to
handle it. Know that. Believe it. It's true. The
people who lost their lives NEED us to come out of this
stronger, thus weakening the forces of evil that took them
away and still threaten us from without and within.

The powerful beliefs below are for you to use to
strengthen your ability and determination now to fight
through and win over every adversity and struggle you're
faced with.

Remember, you ARE what you believe. I believe that you
and all of us CAN come together to give a positive meaning
to Tuesday's tragic events... as hard as that may be to
believe right now.

We all must believe.

Chin Up! Keep Going!



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Press on. Nothing in the world can take the place of
persistence."
--Ray Kroc

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Am I even a little closer today to my goal than
yesterday?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

For those of you who don't know Ray Kroc, he's the guy who
took McDonald's from a little hamburger stand to the most
successful restaurant chain in the world. He's long passed
away and the systems that he set up still thrive and
dominate today.

He developed and improved on systems of training, making
the food, presentation, franchising, and advertising that
made a moderately successful joint into a global phenomenon.

Systems and persistence.

Many people thought he was a crazed lunatic, concerning
his fanaticism about consistency. But Ray understood that
once a system, good or bad, is in place, it's nearly
impossible to change it.

And that's how we all are as individuals, too. Once we
get a habit, it becomes very hard to break...

Giving up too soon is the saddest thing in the world.

My wife told me a story the other day about a co-worker
who has never hit the 'Help' button in any software program
she's ever used...and she's used computers every day for
years. She thinks it will take too long to find the
answer, so she just doesn't even bother.

Don't laugh--you probably have a few of these yourself.
Find them and snuff them out.

Do you look at potential goals and get overwhelmed by all
the stuff you'd have to do to achieve it and thus never
start anything? The right way is to write down all the
benefits that you'll get--spiritually, physically,
emotionally, socially... any benefit.

Look far into the future. Write 'em down.

This simple exercise will help you stay motivated to see
it through.

If it takes months or even years to get what you want,
keeping your eye on the ball will keep you going. If you
don't even know why you're doing something, how can you
possibly stay passionate about it?

You can't.

Have you given up on a goal recently, where if you
attained it, your life would be dramatically improved?

Were you passionate about the goal?

Of course you weren't.

Passionate desire helps create persistence.

Persistence alone will often get you where you want to go.
Without it, it doesn't matter how much you know, who you
know, who you are, what you've done before, what you look
like or how much money you have to throw at a problem.

Persistence, sheer persistence usually will win.
Determination will overcome even superior talent.

Even if you never reach the goal that you've worked so
hard for, there is a pretty decent ancillary benefit...

Character.

Tomorrow's another day. Your day.

How Could You Be Anything But A Success?


------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote

------------------------------

"To men pressed by their wants, all change is ever welcome."
-Ben Jonson

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Concerning my thoughts and actions now, am I using my
past and present as an excuse for failure or as my
motivation for success?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

A number of years ago I heard a powerful story about
motivation. I don't remember where I heard it or even if
it was true story or not, but it perfectly exemplifies the
human ability to transcend circumstances.

My memory of it is fuzzy, so here's my version... with a
twist.

A reporter decided to follow up on an incredible human
interest story after hearing of two brothers, one a
vicious, dangerous criminal to be locked up for the next
ten years for his latest crime, and the other a highly
respected university professor.

After the arrest of brother number one, he told the police
about his brother, his closest living relative.

After the police discovered who brother number two was, a
reporter was given the tip that this could be an
interesting story.

Upon interviewing both men at length, the reporter learned
that their father was a brutal man. He was a hard drinker.
And his brand of teaching his boys "right from wrong"
involved terrible verbal abuse no matter where they
happened to be. When they "got out of line," he hit them
with belts, his fists, sticks - whatever was handy.

They both told almost identical stories of extreme
cruelty. Neither one was exempt from the old man's anger
and drunken rage.

While the boys were 19 and 20 respectively, their father
died of a massive heart attack. Shortly afterwards, the
brothers had a falling out and never saw each other again -
brother number one moved out of state and sort of fell off
the face of the earth... living his life between jail terms.

Brother number two graduated from college and followed a
designed path to living a rewarding life of service to his
community, his church and his family.

The thing that practically knocked the reporter over was
both brothers' identical answer to the same question.

After getting the background on both individuals, the
question was, "How did you get here to this point in your
life?"

The two answered the question with this same response...

"With a father like mine, how could I be any different?"

One used his father as an excuse, while the other used him
as motivation - as training on what not to do.

You see, it's not what happens to you in life that
dictates where you'll go and who you'll be. It's what you
do with it.

I'll bet that, right now, you could sit down and list at
least a dozen people who have risen up from hellish
childhoods, or who are completely different than anyone
else in their families in some significant way. You'll
discover that, concerning the differences, there are
completely different belief systems, different ways of
"looking at" the situations, different motivations and
reward systems.

So I'm being honest when I tell you there is no reason on
the face of the earth why you can't achieve your next big
goal. None. I don't care how many times you may have
fallen on your face.

Do you want to reach some health milestone after repeated
failures? Then decide to.

And stop with the excuses. You've been lying to yourself
too long.

Do you need to learn something, to pass some test, to get
a degree or license? Then get off your backside, shut off
the TV and do it.

Do you see a failure when you look in the mirror? Do you
know what to do, but just always decide not to do it? Then
turn the volume of the criticism in your head down. Shut
off the excuses. Write down on 3x5 cards statements like
these:

-Good job, I really tried hard.
-I really have quite a talent there.
-I'm quite a handsome man/beautiful woman
-Boy, when I have a job to do I just tear right in and get
it done.

...And read them often.

Write down empowering questions like these:

What is good about me? What could be?
What are the many benefits I will get by doing this or
believing that?
Why do I want to achieve (some outcome)?
What is my best character trait?
How can I get (someone) to really truly admire and respect
me?

There are thousands more.

And they all make you feel better and more capable.

With this reading as a habit, you will change how you see
yourself.

What you're being exposed to now is what I discovered to
be the inner differences between the winners and doers in
life and the losers and watchers.

And if you think this doesn't work, you couldn't be more
wrong.

Think about the two brothers and all the billions, dead
and alive, who have risen above their circumstances and
their old programming to be, do and have more than it
appeared they ever would. You've experienced this. Now
it's time to turn it up a notch. Grab yourself a huge goal.

Our Think Right Now! audios are based, in part, on this
whole technology.

Go to our site and check out some of the changes people
have made using them. It's downright scary.

When you change what goes in, you will change what comes
out... IF it goes in regularly and in the right way.

Come on, make today something special.

Make today your day.

No more excuses.

Take your circumstances and all of your past failures and
use them as motivation... as the reason for your imminent
success.

Be like the professor.

With circumstances like yours, how could you be anything
but a raging success?

Will Your Changes Last This Time?



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"He that never changes his opinions, never corrects his
mistakes, will never be wiser on the morrow than he is
today."
--Tryon Edwards

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What are some changes that I should make? How can I make
them last?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

A few months ago, one of our cats, Rebecca, got out of the
house for only the second time in eight years. Since she
often spends time sleeping in hidden closet spaces, no one
had seen her for a few hours and didn't think much of it.

But after hearing horrible noises outside late that night,
my stepdaughter came and enlisted me to find out if Rebecca
was outside.

Since she's white, I saw her instantly against the dark
background of trees in the back yard. As I got closer, she
looked like she had stuck her paw in an electrical socket.
Her hair was standing straight up. After a few very
nervous moments, I was allowed to get close enough to touch
her and then, gently, bring her in the house.

The next day, the Vet shaved a couple spots to reveal some
nasty bites from another cat. She was hurting really bad,
but pretty soon, she was back to normal...

Well, almost.

Ever since, she has been the most lovey-dovey cat you have
ever seen. Every time she's around, which is just about
always now, she's rubbing up against us, purring, playing,
and wanting to be petted... kind of like a dog except for
the purring.

This is a cat that, while never mean, would never even let
you pick her up for more than a few seconds. The only time
she ever came really close was to meow for treats.
I think this new behavior is her way of saying, "Hey, all
these years I never truly knew what you guys meant to me.
I know now. And I'm not forgetting it."

She's literally like a different kitty. And she's NOT
reverting back to her old ways.

When studying the behavior of people, we see that most
sudden changes usually don't last because they haven't been
"cemented in" through time and repetition. Typically,
after a short period, old behaviors come right back strong
as ever. Our OLD patterns, our MOST dominant programs...
our true beliefs, come back to run our never-ending string
of emotions and thus our moment-by-moment actions.

Rebecca's situation, though, was unique in that it was a
HIGHLY emotional event. And those kinds of events tend to
re-wire us without the requisite time and repetition before
our new patterns can take over.

Since most of us have changes we want to make, and don't
want to wait around for a high-intensity emotional event to
occur, THAT is why it's so important, in the process of
changing habits of thought and action, to repeat the ideas
and visualize what you want constantly. Without it, change
rarely comes or stays around for very long. Today, you
never see athletes in any sport who don't do this daily.

That's why these newsletters are structured the way they
are. Without making the continual effort to install action-
producing, winning beliefs, there is no foundation for new
behavior that will last beyond a few days or weeks.

It's vitally important to continuously implant the seeds
of greatness on a daily basis...

Or nothing on the outside will change.

And it's SO easy to do.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go play with my
cat. She wants some attention.

Make Today Great



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"It used to seem to me that my life went on too fast. So
I had to take it slowly just to make the good parts last."
-Steve Winwood

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What is really great or could be great about today?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Happiness in life, or even for a day, doesn't mean that
you run around like a chicken every day talking about how
great you feel. And it doesn't just mean that you closed
the big deal or your dinner reservation was accepted. Too
many of us look at outside validation to prove to ourselves
that things are good.

Trust me, when I was over $100,000 in debt with no earthly
idea how it would be paid, if I had looked outside myself
to try to feel good, guys in white coats would've been
called in to take me away.

Immersing myself in subconscious mind re-patterning was
essential. How do you go from being a person who always
wished they were somewhere, anywhere else; someone who
couldn't remember what they read for more than a few
minutes, having to re-read stuff two and three times to get
it; someone who just didn't care about anyone but
themselves; who moved papers all over and said they worked
a full, exhausting day?

So how can you get on the road to happiness?

-By completely accepting the fact that there are many
things you must learn and that you can learn to be as
effective and as happy as you dream of being

-By viewing criticism as a chance to learn... (at least in
private)

-By trying to find something, anything, to be happy
about... every single day
Even if you do nothing more than plant a big grin on your
face all day, doctors have proven that chemicals are
released by the brain that mimic those happy pills
prescribed by the billions for depression. Actually, it's
the pills that mimic the brain's natural function of
producing euphoria.

Here's what I want you to do...

Write down today's question. And underneath it, write at
least five things that you can think of that are, or could
be, great about today.

Topics can include:
- Your health or someone else's
- The way you feel emotionally
- A bad habit that you've controlled recently
- Someone who has been noticing you- that you like, too
- Positive comments on your work
- Your new suit
- Big appointment coming up and you feel prepared! Or,
- You don't feel prepared but you have time to get ready
- Getting together with friends that you haven't seen in a
while
- A new day to learn about yourself and what motivates you

You see, you can go on and on... and you'd better. It
will only take a couple minutes, but will pay gigantic
benefits to you.

There are literally hundreds of things that you can pay
attention to that can make you feel good... at any moment
in time. At EVERY moment!!

Don't confuse this type of mental focus as being
Pollyanna. I'm not talking about putting rose-colored
glasses on. I'm talking about a way to keep from worrying
about things you can't control that probably won't happen
anyway, about focusing on what's good instead of being
depressed about things that are over and done.

Steve's quote about taking it slowly doesn't mean slowing
down. It means being in the moment. Enjoying the good
stuff as it's happening... Paying attention to the good
things and being able to appreciate them, instead of only
the "problems."

Depressed people DON'T focus on what's good or even what
could be good... only on what's not right. I used to be
one of the best "problem focused" people you will ever meet.
And as you will see very shortly, after you finish writing
down all you can in response to today's question, you can
immediately start enjoying each and every day at levels
that seemed unattainable to you before.

Don't just read this and forget about it. Your happiness
today and for the rest of your life depends on your ability
to appreciate the fleeting moments that can give you some
of the most wonderful memories you'll ever have...

I promise.


Now write down at least 5, and preferably 10-20 answers to
today's question...and start smiling.

Solve Your Problems By Throwing Them Away

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"I don't know who my grandfather was. I'm more concerned
to know who his grandson will be."
-Abraham Lincoln

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Am I looking at yesterday as an excuse to fail or a
reason to succeed?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

I don't know where I first heard this little mental
technique, but it was just after I moved back from
California to New York in 1987. Just one of the many
little grains of sand thrown on the pile that I used to
help me climb out of my hole. It has served me well over
the years. When you get stuck and feel that there's no way
out of a situation, try this.

Write down a "problem" you're embroiled in. Write how you
feel about it. Write down all the reasons you can't
succeed, why you feel powerless, why it's no use to even
try...

Then take that paper, wad it up in a ball and throw it
away. Upon my many arcing baskets I could usually be heard
saying something like, "That is the biggest pile of horse
crap I've ever seen!!"

After you do this, forget about it. Yup. Put it out of
your mind completely. Start some other task right away.
If you do this, something magical will happen. Your
subconscious mind will go to work on it. You see, when you
tell yourself out loud that your pity party is hooey, that
your false excuses are just that, that you're not going to
listen to the lies you've told yourself for so long, your
mind, the one that God gave you to use for good and noble
deeds, says, "All right!! Time to do what I was created to
do!"

What you'll experience is, most times, nothing short of a
miracle. Often, within a day or two, you'll be driving
down the road, eating a snack or raking the leaves and
suddenly you'll get a huge "A-ha!!" And the answer comes.

Life being life, we all get lots of opportunities to solve
problems that seem insurmountable... sometimes daily. But
by programming your subconscious mind in this way, you're
teaching yourself to come up with answers quickly. Soon,
all "problems" become nothing more than an easy decision or
two from complete resolution.

Like any good habit, though, you need to be consistent.
Don't do it once, solve a big problem, never to come back
to your excellent technique. How many times have you
watched a sporting event and your team's strength seems to
be completely underutilized by the coaching staff calling
the plays. Doesn't it shock you that these guys could be
so stupid not to use their best chance to win? Don't be
like that!

Grab a pen and a piece of paper... C'mon.

Soon you'll be making baskets from across the room with
your little balls of paper... "Three seconds, two, one...
the shot. It's good!!"

Problem solved.

Appreciate The People Around You



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Hay is more acceptable to an a.s.s. than gold."
-Latin Proverb

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What is the most appropriate form of appreciation and/or
service I can provide to each person?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Aren't you just amazed sometimes about how obvious it is
that you or someone around you fails to get recognized for
accomplishments? It's easy to see in others isn't it?

When it's someone else who should show the gratitude, it
ridiculously obvious, isn't it?

But when it's US that should hand out some thanks and show
that we feel lucky to have the support and help we DO get,
we quite often are just as guilty of "forgetting" to do
this as those we despise. Isn't that right?

I have watched some of the most incredible performers in
the work arena get literally forgotten when it comes to
pats on the back. More responsibility and longer hours are
what they usually get. And less thanks.

Is it any wonder that it's tough to keep good employees?
There's an unfortunate tendency to believe that most people
just know they're good, or have done well, so we don't
bother to tell them.

In the last few years, psychologists recently did a study
about what employees want in their jobs. And pay ranked
something like number seven in importance. That doesn't
mean it wasn't important. Just that on a day-to-day basis,
that's not what we dwell on when it comes to job
satisfaction.

Feeling appreciated and a feeling of being in on things
ranked at the top of most lists.

If some of a company's computers worth several thousand
dollars came up missing, they'd call the police and a full
investigation would ensue. The company would want them
back and would like to see the crooks behind bars.

But if a key employee were to leave suddenly, that
person's bosses and the company owners would likely never
get down to the root of why they just lost an asset worth
possibly hundreds of thousands (or even millions) of
dollars!

But I know why.

Most people don't want to take the time (or accept the
possible guilt). Most of us simply don't understand the
implications of not showing how much other people mean to
us.

With great regret, I can say without hesitation that I
have been very guilty of this. But the awareness of it is
the first step towards having the power of appreciation
help rather than hurt you.

If you say "I guess I should do more of that (yeah,
right!)" then you are killing your chances of true and
lasting success and happiness in business, career and
personal matters.

None of us likes to be taken for granted. Many people
have gone nearly insane because they don't feel
appreciated. Think about times when you or someone you
know got upset and/or acted in irrational ways. Aren't
many of those times also times when you felt unappreciated,
not necessary or that your opinion doesn't matter?

You see? It colors all your relationships--professional
AND personal.

Cruising through your days just expecting that John is
going to do what you need him to do because that's what
he's always done in the past is crazy. Pretty soon John's
going to be gone...

...and you won't even know why.

But now, at least, you'll have that seed of an idea why.

When you'd like a word of encouragement or a compliment of
a job well done, even a little acknowledgement, and it
doesn't come, notice how it feels. I hope it doesn't wreck
your day, but just notice it. Feel it. Well, that's what
others feel, too, when their deeds are ignored.

You could quickly become the most popular person in
school, work, or just about anywhere else. Just start
noticing small things. Pick them out and give a quick
thanks to the person who was responsible.

Do this for a couple days or weeks and you'll see people
instantly responding to you.

Try it out and watch everything change!!!

Do Your Best And You'll Win



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"Players fifty years ago wanted to win just as much as
players today. Foot soldiers 1,000 years ago wanted to win
the battle as much as combat troops today. The difference
is that everybody worries about it more today because of
the media and the attention they give to the question of
who's winning and who's losing. Those are the wrong
questions. The correct question is: Did I make my best
effort? That's what matters. The rest of it just gets in
the way."
-John Wooden (10 NCAA basketball championships in 12 yrs)

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Is my focus on winning and losing or on doing my best?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

I expect that most people reading that quote would
disagree with Mr. Wooden initially. Why? Because so many
people play "Lotto," cheat on their spouses, lie on their
resumes, cook the books to make the stock price higher...
all to try to short-cut the system.

John Wooden never talked to his teams about winning...
only about doing their best.

And when you do your best, you often become THE best.
Why? Because hardly anyone else is doing THEIR best.

I noticed that in my business career. I've risen to the
top of four different industries now because I focus on
doing the best job that I can possibly do.

To have one eye over your shoulder worried about things
outside of your control does only one thing... it makes it
impossible for you to do your best. With one eye off the
road, you are going to crash sooner or later. Usually
sooner.

My grandfather used an analogy with me to help me keep my
mind where it should be. Of course I didn't do what he
said to do for a long time, but here's what he told me. He
said that no matter what I am doing, think of myself as on
the top of a ball - balancing. I had to focus only on what
I was doing or I'd fall off the ball. If I took my
attention away from the ball, I was going to fall off.

Throughout this last season in the NBA, I watched all the
team's statistics concerning their wins on "the road,"
games played in the opposing team's home field.

And I thought it was absolutely fascinating that, at the
end of the season, out of 29 professional teams, only 5 had
winning records on the road.

One of the main problems? The opposing fans rooting for
the home team...

Interesting to note that of those same teams, 21 out of 29
had winning records in home games.

So when the game is on the line and that multi-millionaire
superstar is taking a critical shot in the fourth quarter,
chances are better that he'll make it at home but miss it
on the road. Why? Because most of them aren't completely
focusing on their task. Instead of the basket, they're
thinking about the guy in the 4th row.

"Home field advantage" is at play in everyone's lives
every day.

You see, when John Wooden was coaching in college, half of
all their games were "away" games, but there was a period
toward the end of his career where his teams won 88 games
in a row. Nearly 4 full years without losing a single game.

You see, his players weren't thinking about winning -only
of doing their best... every minute. Every play.

They were like machines programmed to do their job. If
they were focusing on their job, the crowd couldn't affect
them.

It sure helps to have a coach like that, but in life, you
usually have to be your own coach. You simply can't rely
on someone else to pump you up when you need it. Because
quite often they'll let you down. You'll want some pep
talk, and the person you call to make you feel better isn't
there, or they aren't in a peppy mood themselves.

Bottom line is, you've got to control your own moods.
That's why I always have some kind of book with great
thoughts near by, why I always have a tape playing in the
car and why I always have a Think Right Now! CD playing
throughout the night.

The world is a giant ball. Turning, turning, turning.

When we don't focus on where we're going, we fall.

The "crowds" are often hostile, but if we just pay
attention to what we can do, to what our little job is and
do it to the best of our ability, quite often we will come
out on top.

Will you win awards right out of the shoot? Probably not.

Will you make a million in a year or two? Not likely.

Will you meet Mr. or Miss Right tonight? Does it really
matter?

A better question is: With a different focus, will you get
better at whatever it is that you're doing? In fact, will
you quickly get better at nearly everything you do?

Absolutely.

Will you feel great about yourself as you are doing your
best?

Yup... IF you pay attention to how you succeeded so you
can repeat it, and IF you aren't worried about someone
else's performance or what anyone says about you.

You see, all of life is a game. Whether you are in front
of crowds or all alone, you will act based on what you are
thinking about - on what you are paying attention to.

Do you think Tiger Woods routinely steps up to the ball
thinking, "I'm going to hook this one. It's going in the
trees."???

Not a chance.

Now, there is a chance it may go in the trees, but that is
not where his focus is. And that is why it usually ends up
right.

Every top performer in every field of endeavor focuses
constantly on what they should be doing right now to get
their desired outcome.

To allow others to control your focus, to lose sight of
your goals for seconds, then minutes, then hours will cause
you to fall down constantly.

Control your focus and you will be in control of your
emotions, your actions and your life.

Bring Out The Best


------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall
prepare himself to the battle?"
-I Corinthians 14:8

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Do I expect of myself all that I am capable?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Harvard University researcher, Robert Rosenthal, did a
study on a number of elementary school teachers. He went
to the schools and informed the teachers that he was going
to give their students a test that would identify academic
potential...

But the test was a hoax.

Instead, he chose the students randomly and told the
teachers that the students he identified were brilliant...
that they were geniuses. These students would definitely
excel, he told the teachers, if they were given support and
guidance.

By the end of the school year, the majority of those
students had improved their IQ scores and their grades had
improved dramatically...

And some of those students happened to have been some of
the worst students up until that point. These teachers
were given no special training. All they knew was that
they had some "stars" among them.

Rosenthal performed the same tests with college
professors, and the results were just as dramatic.

This is known as the Pygmalion effect, so named after a
story in Greek mythology. The Pygmalion effect is real.
It's working every day, every minute... either for us or
against us.

So here is the situation...

Here you are, with your career and your family and all the
other things that make up your life. And you may excel in
one or more areas. Maybe you're even the head of a large
organization. But it doesn't matter if you're on the
bottom or the top. This incredible force called negative
expectation is no doubt working against you in some form in
one or many areas of your life.

How?

Your past scripting, or past experience, has "taught" you
that people you know are going to perform in expected ways.
When you meet people, you'll place your imagined level of
expectation on them based on their appearance, their
vocabulary, what you've heard about them, their education
level, their tone of voice... could be any number of things.

In an inordinate number of cases, the people in our lives
will perform exactly as we expect them to... because we
treat them how we see them.

You need to raise your expectations of the people you meet
and know. Expect people to follow through. Expect them to
excel. All people. Treat them in ways that show what you
expect. Tell your "team" members that you think they're
champions, that they can succeed, that you're committed to
them and to their growth...and your own.

Ever hear of Marva Collins, arguably the greatest teacher
in history? She treats ALL her students as if they could
become the President some day.

After becoming disillusioned with the Chicago public
school system she taught in for 14 years, she started her
own school in her own home. Since then, she has taken kids
labeled retarded and un-teachable. She's provided them
with love, compassion and understanding. She has a firm
belief that each student will learn. She absolutely will
not let them fail. Failing is not an option.

What she has achieved is miraculous.

To learn more about Marva Collins, you can read her books.
A movie about her life was made, starring Cicely Tyson.
Her web site is http://www.marvacollins.com.

While we're helping bring out the best in others, what
about you?

Don't think I forgot about you. This is really about you.
You can't bring out the best in anybody if you don't even
believe in YOUR own abilities. Take the empowering beliefs
at the bottom of this letter. Read them every day with
conviction and belief that you are the person you're
affirming to be.

Expect more from yourself than mediocrity. Expect
greatness.

And just as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, you'll
become that person. You'll persuade yourself to want to be
even more. And in the process, you'll have what you truly
want in this life, no matter what it is you desire.

After all, how do you think great teachers, mentors and
coaches bring out the best in others?

They encourage, inspire, push, cheer lead, teach and love.
Through the repetitive daily reading of the most empowering
beliefs, you'll become your own best success coach.

And it's only then that you can begin to reach out and
teach what you know... and change the world.

Have You Smelled Any Roses Today?

Rose
Read today's Fast Session and follow the suggestions.
Remember, nothing works until you do.


------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"When we learn to give thanks, we are learning to
concentrate not on the bad things, but on the good things."
-Amy Vanderbilt

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What are five things I'm most grateful for today? Ten?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------


It's so easy and it seems pretty natural, when things
aren't going right, to get angry and frustrated. It's
common for people to shake their fists at the sky and say,
"Why me?!"

At these times, what's needed is a little perspective.

For me, right now (Oct. 2000), it's downright painful to
even sit here and type, due to these disks in my neck that
may or may not be part of me for much longer. There are so
many 'What ifs?' that it's a bit daunting. What if I do
nothing? What is reasonable to expect from therapy?
Surgery? What about mobility afterwards? How about
sports? Ever again? Precautions? Pain? Oh, the pain!
Paralysis? Loss of use of a limb? Gosh, I'm only 38!!
This wasn't in the plan!

And that's just what a lot of people do until they're
'paralyzed' with anxiety.

There is another way...

The desire must be to feel better mentally when it's not
possible physically or when outer circumstances aren't
likely to change soon. Isn't that right? I mean, you'd
like to at least 'feel better' in your thoughts, right? It
IS possible.

So I literally can't think of a better thing to do than to
put forth every ounce of effort into gaining a perspective
on things that will bring peace of mind.

Haven't we all known or heard of someone who has
experienced devastating circumstances, including radical
deterioration to their health, yet they 'managed' to stay
'positive?' They must be out of their right minds, huh?
But the truth is that there are literally millions of
people right now whose daily struggles make our own seem
like a grain of sand in our shoe.

It's all about perspective...

Remember, things could be worse, right? You could be gone
already. The pain could be triple. The loss could be
total and permanent. The embarrassment could be worse...
somehow. The scars could be worse. You could live in a
refugee camp. You could be starving.

Remember, if you were born in a country with tremendous
freedoms, you've got it a whole lot better than BILLIONS of
others. Do you shiver in your sleep? Do you wonder where
your next meal is coming from?

To go on with grace and a calming peace, I only need to
think about all the things that ARE good... in comparison
to what they could be... compared to what so many others
are experiencing this very moment... compared to where I've
been.

Take a minute or two or ten and write down a short list
that you can pop in your wallet, pocket or purse. Put on
it all the things you can think of that are good compared
to what things used to be like. What's good compared to
what others face? How's your country? Your neighborhood?
Your schools? Your friends? Has anyone shoved a gun in
your face in the last 24 hours?

No matter what can happen to you, keep in mind that it
could be worse. Also, remember that you are bigger than
any of it. You can go on with dignity and overcome all of
it. One peaceful, smiling, serene and grateful minute at a
time.

And there are plenty of role models who've experienced it
all before you have, all around you to help you do it.

Isn't that rather comforting?

You Can Control Your Habits



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"We're worn into grooves by Time--by our habits. In the
end,these grooves are going to show whether we've been
second rate or champions, each in his way in dispatching the
affairs of every day. By choosing our habits, we determine
the grooves into which Time will wear us; and these are
grooves that enrich our lives and make for ease of mind,
peace, happiness--achievement."
-Frank B. Gilberth

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What thoughts do I have that continuously drive me into
taking the actions that keep me down?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

You can't possibly make a positive change in your life if
you don't know how it is that you make the mistakes in the
first place--the habits that confine you to making the same
mistakes over and over.

...And over.

I can appreciate how frustrating it is to be imprisoned to
running the same old patterns--only to get the same rotten
results. I was a living, breathing example of the power of
bad habits.

No one type of person is immune to the power of habits.
The other day I was reading about some of the tightwad
habits of a few famous, and wealthy, people...

For example, Clarke Gable used to argue regularly with his
grocer about the price of jellybeans. John Rockefeller
once gave his groundskeeper a $5 bonus...then docked it
from his pay when the man took Christmas Day off. Paul
Volcker, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, used to
pack a suitcase full of dirty clothes and take it to his
daughter's house so he didn't have to pay to have it
cleaned. Ty Cobb, the baseball great and early investor in
Coca-Cola, used to steal soap from hotels and locker room
showers and send them back to his home.

These are prime examples of the power of habit. Even
after these people became wealthy, they still retained
their old scripting.

Our habits of thought, especially the thoughts that we
don't even CONSCIOUSLY think any more, control every action
and emotion we have... even in our sleep.

So if you've been reading my newsletters for months, and
even if you forward them all over the world, but you
haven't once taken those affirmations at the bottom and
attempted to incorporate them into your daily thoughts, you
are missing out on one of the most powerful and life
altering habits you have available to you; because it is
impossible to change your action habits before you first
make a thought habit change.

Reach up and scratch your ear. The only way you can do
that is if you think about it first, either from a direct
command like I just gave (which you had to think about) or
by the thought, "My ear itches." So you take the action.

You can't take a single action unless you think about it
first. The thought, "My ear itches" is an affirmation. If
your ear lost all its feeling and went numb, a mosquito
could suck it dry and you'd never get the thought, "My ear
itches." So you wouldn't scratch it. The mosquito doesn't
make you itch your ear. It's the thought, "I'm getting
bitten." Numb ear means no thought.

For many decades, yogis have done demonstrations where
they drink a toxic substance like turpentine yet it does
nothing to them. They affirm in their minds that no matter
what the liquid is, their body will react to it as if it's
water. No cell in their body is harmed. No treatment is
necessary.

You have a mind just like they do. Same structure. Same
abilities. There is no difference. Well, there is one...

Your beliefs - your affirmations, are different.

You can only act based on what you believe... what you
affirm is true. Affirmations like, "I'm too short, too
tall, too this, too that, I can't do it, She would never
like me, I'll never learn this, I'm going to die broke..."

...In fact any false belief you have isn't false at all if
you believe it.

If you believe that you're going to own hundreds of rental
properties, you'll learn what you need to know and you'll
do what's required to make it happen.


Conversely, if you believe (affirm) that you'll need
Social Security to survive and that you'll live hand to
mouth forever, you won't try to save, you'll spend your
money on junk, your time will be spent on recreation and
you'll run the other away from setting meaningful goals.

Habits control all of us. Take control of your thoughts.
Make it a daily habit of affirming powerful belief
altering, action producing truths about you and about life,
and it will literally force you to do and to enjoy (if you
affirm to) the actions that will make your dreams come true.

Make a commitment now to be the one in twenty who gets
what they really want in life; The one in twenty who takes
information and actually does something with it; One in
twenty who can take goal accomplishing actions because they
convince themselves that it's fun...

And if you don't believe that... yet, then consider this.

Life is tough no matter who you are. What pain would you
rather have, the pain of sacrifice and labor or the pain of
regret and sorrow for the things you never did because you
believed you couldn't and will never get the chance to do
again?

Choose the first one... Please.

Resolve



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"When you want a thing deeply, earnestly and intensely, this
feeling of desire reinforces your will and arouses in you
the determination to work for the desired object. When you
have a distinct purpose in view, your work becomes of
absorbing interest. You bend your best powers to it; you
give it concentrated attention; you think of little else
than the realization of this purpose; your will is
stimulated into unusual activity, and as a consequence you
do your work with an increasing sense of power."
-Grenville Kleiser

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"Is my resolve sufficient to succeed in my next venture?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

Possibly the most important quality or skill you need to
succeed at anything in life, whether it be getting in
shape, excelling in your job, beating an illness or just
plain being happy is a dogged commitment to doing it.

Ninety five percent of the time, people don't reach their
aims because their resolve to get there was never very
strong to begin with.

If you don't believe you'll get to your destination, how
much effort will you ever be willing to put in? I mean, if
you want to lose 20 pounds or 200 pounds and you've "tried"
dozens of times only to ultimately quit trying, then what
kind of effort will you be likely to put in this time?

Right. Not much.

The secret is your belief and your commitment.

How many times have you had some outcome that was an
absolute must. You simply HAD TO GET IT DONE. The
consequences of failing would be too great. At least in
your mind, they were great. So...

You got it done! You worked all night. You rallied the
troops. Your whole being was into it. There was simply no
turning back. Failure was not an option...

And you succeeded.

Tell me, during those times when you rose to the
challenge, was there much doubt about the ultimate outcome?
Probably not, huh? You just knew that success was
imminent, didn't you? Well, that's what happens when
you're totally committed to a goal...

...AND when you're clear on exactly what you want.

To succeed at anything, keep your inner voice positive.
Tell yourself you can... constantly. Every hour. At
critical moments of decision.

Talking about belief and resolve: You've no doubt all
heard the stories about people who exhibited amazing feats
of superhuman strength and picked up a vehicle just enough
to help rescue another person pinned underneath.

And what about those tireless rescue workers who simply
won't let themselves stop until they find one more
survivor. They have their outcome set and they're doing
everything to achieve it.

Now, in our everyday lives, that kind of schedule is
usually not required and definitely not healthy, but the
principle is the same. Keep your eyes on the goal. Every
minute. Every hour.

If you do, then you won't be wasting precious time on non-
essential tasks. You'll keep yourself from feeling the
agony of failure. Because if your resolve is strong, when
you do meet those temporary setbacks, you'll see them as
that...temporary.

When your determination is weak, each setback looks like
the end.

So look at your next project, and the one after that, and
even the one after that, and start talking yourself into
doing what you must. Tell yourself that you're up to it.
Make it a must.

Do that and I know I'll be hearing from you with one heck
of a success story.

Success Leaves Clues



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"He who seeks advice seldom errs."
- Philippine proverb

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question

----------------------------------

"Who would know - where should I look for the answer?

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

The old cliché "Success leaves clues" is possibly the most
ignored pathway to achievement I know of.

Why?

In addition to not wanting to look unknowledgeable, I
think, a big reason is because getting advice and answers
often either costs money, which people don't want to
invest, or time, which even fewer want to invest.

I say invest because whenever you "spend" time or money on
learning, you've given yourself the chance to grow and
become better now and in the future at whatever you
invested your time or money in. And if you are better at
something as a result of your "spending" then you've made a
wise "investment."

The average person jumps head first into most situations
without knowing a thing about what they're doing.

A great example of this is a story my uncle Dave told me
this past weekend.

You see, he and a friend took a fishing trip to Canada a
few weeks ago. Every guest in the lodge they were staying
in was there for the same reason... great fishing.

Most of the guys there were fairly experienced fisherman.

And that was their biggest problem.

They were just going to go up there and catch more fish
than they ever did before. Man, those fish were just going
to jump in the boat. We'll just drop our line in and pull
out the fish.

Right.

My uncle and his friend, also very experienced fishermen,
took a slightly different view.

They'd never fished that area before.

So, for $150 [$75 apiece], they hired a guide for the
first two entire days of their trip.

What they got was the experience of a 71-year-old man
who'd been fishing in that area his entire life. He was an
expert in that area. He showed them which lakes, where on
each lake to fish, why, which lures, you name it.

Their results?

Well, consider this...

In a virtual fishing paradise, one guest in the lodge that
week caught just 6 fish all week long.

My uncle, with the advice of the guide, caught 294
Walleyed Pike during the same week fishing the same
lakes... more than any of the other guests.

He told everyone about the guide.

So did anyone else hire a guide that week? Nope. He told
me that no one even asked him what he was doing to catch so
much. I guess they all just thought he was getting lucky.
Big egos.

This is a perfect parallel to how 97+% of all people treat
all aspects of their lives.

I see it every day. Everywhere. In all settings.
Obvious solutions to problems are just ignored.

If you want to reach an important goal in your life, if
you want to beat your competitors, if you want to have
great relationships...
If you want to excel at everything you do.

...Then you absolutely MUST get direction from someone
who's been there before, wherever "there" might be.

Buy books and read them.

Ask experienced people for solutions and listen.

You might have already known 90% of the answer. So what
you have to listen for and hold dear is the 10% you didn't
know.

And use it.

I love going to amazon.com and reading the reviews people
post for books. So many people give bad reviews because in
their opinion, there was "nothing new." What they don't
say is that all the "old" stuff, what now is generally
accepted, they don't even use that.

There is nothing wrong with hearing the same old stuff.
Because unless you use what you've heard or read, you don't
really "know" it.

Most tasks look easy on the outside, and they are... IF
you know what you're doing.

I wouldn't even dream, for instance, of trying to put
something together or learning a new piece of software
without having the instructions at my side. But most
people ignore them. And their results show it.

Look, you may have an I.Q. in the stratosphere. But if
you aren't constantly looking to learn what you MUST know
to get your tasks done quickly and effectively in EVERY
part of your life, then you are creating a destiny of
almost doing a good job, of coming close to finding
happiness but not quite getting there, of being known by
everyone including yourself as undependable. And with that
comes a poor self-image.

My purpose in writing this is for you to become more and
more of a person who is passionate about learning what you
MUST learn in order to set and reach the little and big
benchmarks on the way to your dreams.

You just can't do it any other way. This isn't my
opinion. It's an immutable principle of life. To deny
this is to guarantee a high failure rate at many things you
attempt.

You don't want that. I know it.

So do this...

Make a list of your To-Do's for the next week. Look at
each item and ask yourself the question, "Am I really good
at doing this?" If the answer is no, then before you
start, write down all the things you need to know and do to
prepare before you start. If you need some information,
get it.

And get excited. Smile. Laugh. Because when you get
that info, when you learn the thing you didn't know before
and when you achieve your outcome easier and with more joy
than you ever did before, you have expanded your knowledge,
your capabilities and your value to yourself and others
from that moment on.

Whenever you learn something new, no matter how small, you
just taught yourself that you can achieve the largest of
goals... the most amazing of accomplishments... because
what are big accomplishments? Aren't they just many little
ones all piled up?

It's funny, huh?

Success at just about anything is amazingly simple when
you look behind the curtain. My uncle was a high school
drop out. He didn't even go for weeks at a time.

But when he changed his view about learning, he got his
GED, went to college at night, got his degree and
ultimately became the highest paid civilian employee in
Central New York in the NYS prison system.

In the process, he learned that learning is fun and that
in every single experience he has, there is something he
can take away from it to help him make smarter decisions in
the future... like hiring a fishing guide when no one else
would.

So, how many "fish" are YOU going to catch in the next week?

Picture This!



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"If you don't know where you're going, you'll end up
somewhere else."
-Yogi Berra

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What do I look like reaching my goal?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

When the subject of goals comes up, I just get plain
excited.

There is nothing like mapping out a plan, working like
crazy and despite all obstacles, getting what you were
after. Wow!! No matter what the goal is, even little
daily goals, it's exciting. They build momentum and
anticipation. Just like a road sign telling you that
you've only got 3 miles to go. Cool!

In downtown Syracuse, NY, we have two towers that dwarf
everything else in the city--The MONY Towers I and II. If
you're from out of town and you want to get downtown, you
don't even have to know the streets. You just keep
following the two towers. And no matter how slow you go,
you'll get there... eventually.

This is true of any goal you could possibly have. The
most important thing is to be able to see what you're
after. Or else, as Yogi said, you'll end up somewhere else.

If the goal doesn't exist yet, you only have to use your
imagination. If it does; if others have already done what
you want to do, watch tapes of them, talk with them. Read
their books. If someone else has done it, surely you can
too. Do whatever you must to keep the vision of you
achieving your goal in your mind, especially if you're
blazing trails.

This is vital, crucial, a must...

You must keep your goal in front of you all the time. The
bigger, the more challenging the goal, the more important
this is.

There are simply too many distractions, roadblocks,
detours and temptations that can derail you on the way for
you not to keep it in your sights all the time.

If you want to lose a bunch of weight, tape a picture of
your head onto a picture of a person who has the body you
want. Quitting smoking? Get a picture of lungs that are
nice and pink and healthy. Get a picture of nice white
teeth. Money? Pictures of your dream house, car, clothes.
Grades? Copy your last report card and put straight A's in
place of the other letters.

You're free to get as creative as you want.

See, hear and feel it as often as humanly possible.

Imagine how you'll feel, what other people will say to
you, what you'll sound like when you talk. How will you
walk? What will you think? Imagine it all.

If you can't see it, you most assuredly won't get it.

Think back to the times that you have wanted something and
didn't get it:

Did you keep it in your mind constantly?
Did you visualize getting it?
Did you picture success regularly?

Or did you let every little diversionary thought and
distraction get in your mind's way, and keep it from
picturing you achieving your goal?

If the answer is the second one, then I hope you've
stopped dead in your tracks right now.

This is an important moment. Right now is a turning
point. If you can't imagine what it will be like to reach
your goal; all the steps to get there and what it will be
like once you're there, you're done. It's already over.

Not you though. Not this time. This time is for success.
You are ready.

Be like Michelangelo, who just "released" the David from
within the block of granite.

See it, feel it, hear it.
What is YOUR David?

Seek To Understand



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"If you wish to please people, you must begin by
understanding them."
-Charles Reade

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"How can I learn about what's important to other people?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------


An automobile manufacturer ran ads some months ago that
focused on the fact that their car had the same features as
another manufacturer's car that cost about $30,000 more.

The point of the ad was, of course, that nobody really
NEEDS a luxury automobile. They want them... for THEIR own
reasons. And car companies know this.

We all have our own specific wants. We want to be
understood... to be heard. We want to believe we matter.
Even people who don't do a stinking thing for another
living soul have these desires.

So if you're in a profession where you have to lead others
to your way of thinking or you're teaching others, you need
to enter their minds. You must know where a person stands
on an issue before you can direct them to the proper
decision for them. You must learn about their needs or
what their knowledge is about a specific subject before you
can teach them anything.

In my sales career, I failed for a few YEARS because I
just rattled my canned speech off, never really listening
to what the other person was saying.

As a result, I went from brick and mortar to a one-room
home that got 13 miles to the gallon. Not using your ears
has consequences... for everyone.

OK, now. Let's play a game...

You have to give a gift to someone you've never met. You
don't know their gender or even their nationality. If they
like your gift, you get a million dollars. If they don't
like it, you get your head blown off.
Feel a little pressure?

Okay. Game's changed. The person you must buy the gift
for is your best friend in the world. You know everything
about them. Same terms... Either a million dollars or you
swim with the fishes.

Feels a little different doesn't it?

So how in the world can you get your point across to
others when you don't know what their viewpoint is, what
matters to them or what makes them tick?

In the hearing field, I found there were many different
reasons that people had for wanting to improve their
hearing. They may want to be a safer driver, have
conversations in a car, hear the TV better, hear the phone
ring, hear better on the phone, hear in crowds. The list
is endless.

And there were just as many reasons why someone wanted to
hold off. Too much money, cheaper somewhere else, never
heard of us, only needs to hear in crowds, vanity. Equally
long list.

How can you convince someone they need to hear better in
crowds when they're only in a big group once every 4 months
or so? Can't do it. I had to find out why THEY wanted to
hear well. I was able to get so good at getting inside
their heads that about 95% of my prospects chose me as
their hearing instrument provider. Our industry average
was about 25%...

All by asking questions thoughtfully and truly listening
to the answers.

This doesn't only exist in selling products. This is
every day life.

Do this...

Starting today, listen to conversations other people are
having. Listen to your own. Notice whether or not you or
others just jump in and try to convince people of things
before first finding out their opinion or position. If so,
you'll hear hesitation, doubt and rejection. If you pay
close enough attention, you'll observe all of those.

We all do things for our own reasons, not for the reasons
suggested by overzealous people as they tell us about vague
"benefits" that aren't even important to us.
When I stopped reciting my memorized lists of features and
benefits and started asking questions and began
purposefully listening to the answers, I began helping many
people to join the world of the hearing. My income
skyrocketed, and I noticed that I learned something
interesting and valuable from practically everyone I met.

If you can seek first to understand other people and what
motivates them in every situation, you will be able to
teach them, to lead them to the best decisions, and quite
often to your way of thinking.

Tell me, why would that be important to you?

It's Worth More Than A Bushel Of Brains



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of
brains."
-Dutch Proverb

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What can I start on or continue today that will be worth
a whole bunch to me later on?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

The lack of patience is ruining the world right now.

Instant gratification is not a reality. It's... an
illusion.

You aren't going to be more popular by owning a particular
pair of sneakers and you're not going to win the lot-tery.
Do you personally know anyone who's ever won more than
$2,000 in any of those government-run scams? If you do,
they've put it all back into it and more... guaranteed.

The only thing you can truly count on is if you think the
same kinds of thoughts as people who do what you want to
do, then you'll take the same kinds of actions. If you do
that, you'll get the same results...

...if you give it time and don't give up.

Perfect example: "I've tried everything and I can't lose
this weight."

Sure, tried everything... for a few days. And if you
didn't lose 10 pounds in the first two or three days, you
quit.

And what's even worse, those who do lose weight
successfully usually "forget" what it was that got them
there. Then they slowly get back into the old habits
within a week or, at most, a few months. So they "blossom"
once again... and say, "I tried everything. Nothing works
for me."

Am I talking about you?

Look you're not going to be the president of your company
within the first year. Yes, it's true the company you work
for doesn't always make the best decisions. But you've got
to play the game and earn your promotions and higher
salary. It's not always going to be fair.

Patience, my friend...

And persistence.

Life is not as short as it seems. You can't live tomorrow
before today. You can only prepare for it.

You've got a lot to learn and plenty of time to learn
it...if you look at today as valuable and get off your butt
and learn your lessons well.

Don't be so fast to get ticked off at people that don't
agree with you. Learn how to persuade instead. Ask
questions. Get inside people's heads. Only then can you
direct them... and yourself to where YOU want to go.
Success comes in increments.

Remember the Internet boom where investment in dot-coms
was all the rage? It was raining money.

I remember it too. I was the VP of Sales for a big dot-com.

That company doesn't exist any more.

Lack of patience and... unrealistic timetables.
Investment firms forgot that it takes profits to keep
companies stable, not ludicrous stock valuations.

For whatever goals you're working towards now (you better
have some!), put a completion date on them. If that's what
the date must be then commit to it. But if the date is
soft, figure it's going to take longer.

What is the percentage of jobs you start that get done
when you thought they would when you started? Hardly any?

But what's probably closer to the truth is that most truly
meaningful goals are NEVER reached.

How come?

Typically it's because when the lust for instant
gratification isn't satisfied, we pack our bags and we
forget all about it.

The sad truth is that very few people value earning their
success. Most just want it tossed into their laps. We
want to be rich. We want to be popular. We want to get
straight A's. Cool. Then learn from people who've
attained long term success in that area, and do what they
do.

There's no other way.

Bang your head against the wall. Splash cold water in
your face. Do anything that will wake you up to this truth.

Any success takes effort... sustained effort.

But if you still insist on playing instant LOT~TO, keep
this in mind. Over 90% of those big jack`pot winners lose
all of it.

Rags to riches and back to rags.

Nine out of every ten.

Why? Because they didn't earn it. They never learned how
to handle money. They thought money was the goal.

Keep in mind that it's who you become in life that
matters, not what you get. If you become more, you'll get
more...

And you'll be many times more likely to keep it.

Love Is The Answer



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Of all the earthly music, that which reaches farthest into
heaven is the beating of a truly loving heart."
-Henry Ward Beecher

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What can I remember, notice now or look forward to that
makes
me happy and fills my heart with joy?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

Find your answer to today's question before you read any
further. C'mon now. Think...

As many of you know, my grandfather passed away a few
months ago. This weekend my family got together for a 50th
wedding anniversary party for my aunt and uncle. And today
we spread Grandpa's ashes on my uncle's property, in
upstate New York, as he requested.

As I think about him, I just love him more and more.

And it makes me believe even more strongly that love is
probably the strongest power in the universe.

Isn't it true that those you would do the most for are
those that you love the most? We often go to great lengths
to continue the work or fulfill the wishes of the people we
love, even after they pass on, don't we?

It's love, the devotion for something or someone other
than ourselves that makes us do this.

It's love and passion that drive us to do well the things
that others struggle with. It's often love that keeps us
from giving up.

It's only love that could make you give your own life to
save another's.

How much more would you treasure today if like no other
day before, you had on the tip of your tongue a compliment
instead of a criticism... if your mistakes and the mistakes
of others were seen as chances to learn new distinctions
and become smarter instead of as roadblocks to progress?

You can do that by increasing your ability to take extreme
joy in doing your work, in solving problems and for
bringing happiness to other people today.

Would your missteps seem almost inconsequential if you
loved the process of learning... learning to not make the
mistake again?

Every experience we have is filtered by our emotions. We
will act based on how our filters allow us to act. If the
only things we notice about the people we encounter are
their faults, their hair, their dress, then we can only
treat them accordingly...

By prejudging, hating, feeling superior, being critical
and indifferent we are keeping ourselves from enjoying our
lives, because our lives are nothing more than the moments
inside our own heads... what we think about.

Because we can't control most of the world outside
ourselves, can we? To start enjoying your moments and
days... and your life, you must do your utmost to allow joy
and love in every second you can. How?

I believe it's by appreciating everything and everyone you
encounter today. Your setbacks are actually lessons. So
if you look on them that way--the right way--you'll accept
them for what they are, you'll learn and move on happier
and better equipped for next time.

Watch people. Try like crazy to notice something about
each one that you can appreciate. Many of these things
will be below the surface. You won't see them. You'll
have to use your imagination!

Why are so many people sad, depressed, anxious, worried
and angry?

Not enough love in their hearts. I'm convinced of it.

How can someone look at another person, and in an instant
think all kinds of critical thoughts, yet make the argument
that they have a big, loving heart?

Can't be done convincingly, can it?

When you view typical everyday occurrences with anger and
frustration, you hurt yourself and those around you. Isn't
that right?

You immediately lose the state of mind that allows you to
think clearly and come up with solutions. But when you
love each moment for what you can learn, no matter what the
moment brings, it's very difficult to generate anger, worry
or panic.

And it's possible to achieve. Don't think that I'm
suggesting that I have this one conquered...

Far from it.

But the simple awareness of this power, or the lack of it
in your life, can be enough to send you in a completely
different direction. Pick up the book '14,000 things to be
happy about.' I think you'll find that it's possible to
find love and happiness in even the most mundane things.

Focus today. Put a big note on your monitor, or wherever
you can see it often, reminding you to focus on what you
can love about things and about people.

If you do this, today should be one to remember forever.

What Would Really Happen?



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from
something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do
your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to
in life?"
- Eric Allenbaugh

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question

----------------------------------

"The thing I'm doing right now... is it bringing me closer
or farther away from my goal?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

What would happen if...?

Now THAT is a great question.

It's one that can lead you in creative directions when
asked constantly.

It can also be used strategically to keep you on the right
path - away from bad decisions.

This question is asked constantly in the design of
software, buildings, automobiles... in fact it's probably
the most asked question in the world.

What would happen if...?

But in our personal lives, in our every day decisions
concerning our health, our career, our relationships, this
question is often shelved, locked away, hidden from.

Most people are terrified of it.

Because when we ask it, if we're honest, we usually get
the truth.

We get the "consequences" that we can't ignore.

That's why it's avoided like the plague.

More promising ideas have died quick, horrible deaths by
avoiding this question than maybe any other reason.

What would happen if I ate that piece of chocolate cake?

What would happen if I cheated on my husband?

What would happen if we tested the new software for only
two weeks instead of the usual four weeks?

What would happen if I tried to remember all my
appointments this week without writing them down?

You see, if we don't ask, we can't fully consider the
consequences. And when we don't think about what would
happen as a result of our thoughts and actions, we can't be
smart.

We lose opportunities by the boatload.

In the sports world, it's known as putting yourself in a
position to win. Great managers know that if you can stay
close, you have a chance.

Because if an unlucky bounce occurs, you've killed your
chances to win if you'd made a bunch of dumb errors, unwise
decisions or if a referee's call goes against you.

Achieving great victories, or simply getting any long-term
project done on time, on budget and done correctly doesn't
usually happen because of one great decision or one
spectacular action.

It's done by making a lot of good decisions, which, added
up, can be a great, great outcome.

People like "home runs," but success at anything isn't
about having a great 30 seconds a week ago.

When a person loses 30 - 50 - 80 po'unds or more, for
example, it isn't because they said no to the cheesecake at
the Christmas party.

It was literally thousands of individual decisions made
each day guided by an overriding purpose, and great
questions asked constantly.

When someone builds a company to a million, then tens of
millions and hundreds of millions in sales, it's not only
because they're so "smart" - many big companies have been
built by people with less than average intelligence,
average memory, less than average grades in school, no
people skills.

But the ability to ask...

"Is this the best use of my time and resources?"
"What would happen if we changed this feature?"
"What would happen if we changed directions completely?"
"Is this product still going to be needed in the next
year, two, twenty?"

...is the one of the single most critical abilities you
can develop in yourself and in your team.

What could happen if I have one more drink? Could I get
pulled over - get into an accident? What would happen
then? How much would that cost in insurance, fines,
attorneys and lost wages? What else could I lose? Do I
want to risk all that?

Companies in the vinyl record pressing industry that
didn't ask, "What is the next opportunity?" missed out on
CDs and were gone almost overnight.

People who never consider all the consequences of eating
"just one" brownie will always be looking for the "diet
that works," hiding from the questions.

Asking forces you to see what you may not want to face.

But wouldn't it be better to have the answers?

Wouldn't it make it easier to reach your goals? More fun?
Would success come faster?

Wouldn't you be happier -after weighing the negative
consequences with the positive ones- making the decisions
that will send you in the right directions? Wouldn't you
find it easier to say no to the "tempting" but bad
decisions if you focused on the ultimate consequences
instead of turning away from them?

You know the answer!!
Don't you?

Man, I hope you feel more empowered now. You should...

Because the habit of asking empowering "what if" questions
is one shared by successful people in all areas of life.

Make this a part of your every waking moment, and the
opinion you hold of yourself will grow by multiples, due to
your better decisions and better outcomes.

You'll probably gain one or two more productive hours
every single day.

And you'll be less scared of life... able to smile even
during the many important and impactful decisions you must
make every hour of every day.

So, what else could happen if this became an "always on"
unconscious habit?

Bye-Bye Weeds!



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"What is the hardest task in the world? To think."
-Emerson

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"When I did (some thing) right, how did I do it?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

No doubt, you have plenty of times that you can recall
where you did something very well. You felt good. Your
mood was positive. Your focus was on the task or
game...and you were ON.

You said the right things. You hit the ball, made the
shots, ran like the wind. Mistakes, if they happened at
all, were brushed off and forgotten about. You were
definitely in the ZONE and wanted the day to go on forever.

But it didn't...

The next day wasn't quite as good, possibly. And within a
day or two or six, things were back to normal... average.
Not good, not bad. Just vanilla.

Is this you?

If not, then congratulations. But even life's top
performers don't regularly pull rabbits out of the hat in
every area of their lives. It's too common for many people
to be miracle workers at home or at work, but miserable
failures at just about everything else.

Too often, in the area that works, it's more a factor of
doing that one thing for so long that you get proficient at
it. Repetition over the years has worn the grooves of
mastery.

It happened over time, almost without your awareness. It
just came because you did the same thing again and again.
Through all your mistakes you learned how to get things
done fast and easy.

It's too bad you didn't have a course to teach you how to
get these same results in everything you do, no matter what
it is... training that could help you regularly have this
incredible feeling that nothing was above your capability.

But thoughts just kind of pop in and that's the way it's
supposed to work, right? 'How could I control my
thoughts?' you think. 'They just pop in. I feel a certain
way because that's just who I am,' you say.

Wrong...

We get our beliefs if they SEEM accurate. A few mistakes
and BOOM! We define ourselves as not good at something. It
seems to make sense. If other people confirm our
suspicions, then it must be true. Someone does something
we don't like or doesn't look right and BOOM! we make
instant judgments about them without a second's thought.
If the first bite doesn't taste familiar, WHAM! Don't like
it.

Most people get a belief about a thing and stay with that
belief forever, whether it's true or not.

Where that can be the most detrimental is when it's a
limiting belief about yourself and your worth.

Just because you made a particular mistake a number of
times doesn't mean that you'll never be good at something.

Your mind doesn't have to be on autopilot. Thoughts don't
have to just pop into your head. You can control your
thoughts. And when you do start to take control of your
mind, your emotions and actions can be similar to the
greatest successes the world has ever known.

When I took the Silva Mind Method training course in the
early 90's, I would get into my "alpha state" and repeat,
over and over, statements that affirmed my success and
ability. I told myself that there wasn't anything I
couldn't do. I took all my limiting beliefs and put them
on a mental screen and wiped them off one at a time.

Gone. Adios. Arrivederci. Au revoir.

Any belief that didn't support my new goals got cleaned
away. And positive affirmations re-patterned new beliefs
of ability, self-worth and confidence.

Keep in mind, I did this regularly. And I still do.

After all, your mind is thinking constantly. And it's
impossible to tell yourself that you're a genius once and
have it stick. Not when you follow it up with a very human
mistake an hour later, and the first thing you're tempted
to think is, 'See, I knew I was fooling myself! I am a
dunce!'

Your current beliefs took time to take root and the new
ones will also take time. Think of your mind as a field.
You're planting seeds now. The new shoots will come up and
produce fruit, but you've got to water and fertilize them.
You've got to pull the weeds out constantly.

But what you'll have for your effort is some of the
sweetest, juiciest crops of empowering and TRUE beliefs you
could ever have. With these new beliefs will come powerful
emotions and determination that will astound you. Sweet
Success!

And the nice thing is, your new beliefs are always in
season!

Get Mad...Then Make Your World Better



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Anger is a prelude to courage."
-Eric Hoffer

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What am I really dissatisfied about right now?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I guess I better start right out by explaining the word
'Anger' as we'll be using it. By anger, I mean that you
see something or something happens and it spurs in you a
burning, all-encompassing desire to fix the problem.

The problem with most people is that they get angry at
other people for taking advantage of their weaknesses.
"You took my boyfriend." Hey, if your relationship was
good, there wouldn't be a problem. The blame rests with
you and/or your boyfriend, not anyone else.

A few years ago, I met Rudy Ruettiger. The movie 'Rudy'
is based on his life. He told me that the thing that kept
him going in the face of every adversity you can imagine
was anger...

Anger at everyone that told him playing football for Notre
Dame was crazy; for everyone that told him that he wasn't
cut out for college; that he ought to work in the factory
because it was safe; that he ought to forget his stupid
dream.

The nay sayers motivated him. It made him angry when
people knocked his dream.

If you've never seen the movie, I would recommend that you
buy it and wear it out. And if you don't have any tissues,
get some before you hit "play."

What do most people do when others rain on their parade?
What do you do?

Inside, you probably laugh right along and say something
like, "Yeah, it is kind of silly. That IS a little out of
my league."

Why not get angry and do something about it, instead.
Show them you can reach your dream.

Few people like to stand out. To be seen as different.

Well, anger is really just another way of describing one
of the first elements that go into making a personal
mission statement. I mean after all, what would a mission
be if you weren't completely behind it emotionally? It
wouldn't be a mission. It would be just a wish. And
wishes don't usually come true.

Missions, though, usually ensure that dreams become
realized.

But when you've got a mission, it sets your whole being
into motion.

Great missions come about often when you just can't stand
the way something is and you feel like you must change it.

"MADD" (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) came about because
of anger. "America's Most Wanted" came about because of
anger.

So many breakthroughs and achievements would never have
happened unless someone got mad and said "I'm not going to
take it any more!"

I did that years ago and went looking for tools to change
the way I thought. It took a while, but I found them and
altered them to create a technology that ultimately changed
who I am and changed the lives of thousands around the
world... all because of massive pain and dissatisfaction.

Here's what I want you to do...

Find something in your life that you're dissatisfied with
and get yourself worked up. Ask yourself what your life
will be like if this doesn't change. Feel the pain. Get
angry. Don't blame others in this mental exercise. You're
responsible for your own circumstances. Get that straight.

Feel the pain now. Compare those feelings to the feelings
you'd have if you were just to fix the situation now. No
matter what kind of effort it would take to fix. It might
take years for you to get things the way you want them.
But compare the two futures. Get angry at the first
future. Get scared. And get determined not to end up
there.

Make it a must. You must change it. Feel it. If you've
got to cry and scream and pound your fists, fine...if
that's what it takes.

Look now at the better future you saw. How big is the
gap? Would it be worth any effort that it might take? I
think you'll find that it probably is.

Without dissatisfaction, and often anger, it's verrrry
difficult to get and stay motivated. You must keep your
dissatisfaction in your mind daily.

Use it as fuel for your motivation.

As long as you continue to take personal responsibility
for your life, this can work miracles.

But as long as you keep blaming others for your problems,
you'll continue to have them.

Get dissatisfied. It will help you feel courageous, even
if last week you were hiding out.

do when I started them?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I was always perplexed by the question, "What came first,
the chicken or the egg?" Does that have an answer? I
don't know.

But an equally good one that does have an answer is, "What
comes first, confidence or large achievements?"

The answer most definitely is confidence.

No. You don't need large accomplishments to gain
confidence.

But what creates confidence and how can you get more of it
so you can consistently achieve more and have fun doing it?
And what is it that causes a loss of confidence?

It's easy to see in the world of sports the difference
between confidence and doubt. Team A goes on a tear and
destroys their opponent by an enormous amount of runs,
baskets, goals, etc. But the next night, you've got the
same two teams and this time it's Team B that administers
the beating.

What's the difference? Players on the losing teams often
say things like this:

- We just weren't focusing.
- Our emotions weren't in check.
- When they scored in the 3rd quarter, the wind went out
of our sails.
- We just weren't taking good shots.
- Once the crowd got into the game, we got out of our
rhythm.

Those things took their confidence away. They didn't
trust themselves. So their performance for the ENTIRE game
or large portions of it was sub-par.

The next day, different mind set... VERY different
results. The focus was there now. They clearly visualized
their outcomes. Momentum never left for long. Belief came
back. They refused to be intimidated and wouldn't accept
defeat.

I often use sports analogies because there is absolutely
no difference between games and life... especially your
life.

Every day, life demands that you perform. Whether it's
just cleaning the house, raking or trying to enjoy yourself
while you pack up and take a vacation with your family,
your confidence level affects your performance and your
enjoyment.

Confidence. What is it?

To me, confidence is just a feeling that you can do
something.

It's the current knowledge that if challenge pops up, and
they always do, you can overcome it. With this knowing
comes the ability to perform at your best.

But as soon as the feelings wane, your positive expectancy
drops and you start to focus on mistakes instead of your
goals. You start to feel less capable, so you hesitate.
When your confidence leaves you, you can't make decisions.
And when you start to replay these unsupportive mental
pictures, you literally couldn't buy a few minutes of
success at any price.

This power was never more evident as when John Wooden and
his legendary UCLA basketball teams won a record 88 games
in a row. For nearly 4 years, they didn't lose a single
game.

His teams won 7 consecutive national championships. In
the next thousand years, it hardly seems possible that his
records will be approached.

He knew that if he could gain momentum and hold it, the
other team would mentally give up. Their pressure forced
mistakes and caused the opponents to hesitate, to not want
to make more mistakes.

But when your focus is on not making mistakes... you make
mistakes!!!
So how do you gain confidence and keep it?

You must picture success before it happens. Your internal
dialog must be that of expecting success... yes, even
before you have success. How?

Well, how do you learn anything? By repetition, of course.

Look at your bookshelves. If there are more than a few
self-help books, and you don't yet have the qualities
taught inside the covers, then it's repetition that's
missing.

Coke and Pepsi spend tens of millions of dollars each year
to program you to buy their carbonated caramel water.

Why? Because repetition works.

They sell billions of dollars of their products simply
because they communicate their message constantly. Do you
remember the words of songs that you haven't heard in
years?

I'll bet you do!

If you take control of your own mind just like big
advertisers and communicate a positive message of belief
and hope and of expecting to get what you want, and you do
it with repetition, you know what?

You'll become confident.

At least you'll have hope, to start.

And confidence begins with hope. Without hope, a glimmer
of optimism, you wouldn't even try.

If you haven't up until now, start really using this tool.
If you do, just like a drill or a hammer makes building a
structure a thousand times better and faster, you'll
achieve more every single day... easier, better and with
more joy than you ever thought possible.

They Can't Beat Me!



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"I don't like to lose, and that isn't so much because it
is just a football game, but because defeat means the
failure to reach your objective. I don't want a football
player who doesn't take defeat to heart, who laughs it off
with the thought, "Oh, well, there's another Saturday."
The trouble in American life today, in business as well as
in sports, is that too many people are afraid of
competition. The result is that in some circles people
have come to sneer at success if it costs hard work and
training and sacrifice."
-Knute Rockne

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"Whom can I have a (friendly) competition with to use as
my motivator?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

So many people wilt under competition. So I don't want to
propose that you use as an important source of motivation a
mental activity that makes you perform worse in whatever
area you'd like to improve.

What you find difficult today, though, with even a little
"private" competition, you'll find to be easy.

What we're discussing is a way to give yourself a passion
that can give you such drive to reach your objective, that
it will not only get you there, but you'll actually love
the process.

An example in my life is having been a very mediocre
student in high school, and then flunking out of college.
At that point, I kind of got the idea that I better start
doing something well or I just might end up dead broke or
just dead sooner than I'd like. So I enrolled in a local
community college and began using my neighbor, who was an
'A' student his whole life, as my competitor. It was
friendly, of course. And at that time, I was badly
overmatched. I mean, he was a seasoned studier. He knew
how to learn. I didn't.

Every day, I kept him in my sights. He usually beat me on
tests and quizzes, but I won some occasionally...

...enough to keep me motivated.

In fact he drove me to achieve things that I had never
done before. Enough to turn me into an 'A' student in a
single semester. Not bad for someone who only ever got A's
in Art and Gym.

That's the key. You can't pick someone, even in secret,
that there's no way you'd ever measure up to. You at least
have to be able to win occasionally. And someone you beat
constantly won't stretch you.

You have to be able to imagine victory or else you won't
try, long term. You'll get demoralized too easily.

Pick someone in a magazine, someone you used to know, who
you work with. It doesn't matter. Pick someone that
motivates you that you can reach.

If you want to lose weight, find someone who's a little
slimmer than you. Make that an intermediary goal. Then,
go for someone who's just a little further beyond when you
arrive at your first guidepost.

Sure, aim for total success...

But don't swing for the fence every day. Little victories
add up. Allow yourself to feel incredible satisfaction
when you achieve your little benchmarks.

Every time I got a quiz or test within a few points, and
especially if I beat my friendly rival, I literally
glowed... like a star!

Those moments so revved me up that it completely
redirected my life.

Now don't get me wrong. I was due for many more
challenges in life... most of which I would not win for a
long time.

But it was this process and those victories that gave me a
taste of success that took a sustained effort to achieve.

I can't stress enough that the little victories along the
way are every bit as important as the end goal. They keep
you going when you have a setback.

If you want to quit smoking and you've quit for a week,
don't let one slip up ruin all you've built. Every hour
you go without a cigarette, where you didn't bite someone's
head off, give yourself permission to feel an incredible
sense of accomplishment... because it is. Call someone up
on the phone. Go out to dinner. Celebrate in whatever
appropriate way you can. Put a mark on the wall. Give
yourself credit. Smile. You did it.

You must do this...

...because setbacks will come. And if you built up a
series of successes AND RECOGNIZED THEM, you'll treat the
setback as just a slight delay, a little detour. Without
your private victory parties, setbacks can be made to look
like a sheer rock cliff.

During the second year of my becoming a real student, I
achieved something that found a permanent home in my
victory log. On the Statistics final exam, I got the only
perfect 100 ever recorded in that school.

Yes, I had beaten my rival...

...and it felt great!

Reach For The Stars...


...But Keep Your Head Out Of The Clouds

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his
first interest; success comes only later."
--Confucius

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"Am I looking too far ahead to focus on the problem at
hand?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

OK. Where were we?

Did you notice that?

Most people are thinking way too far ahead (or their head
is somewhere else entirely) to focus on what they're
supposed to be doing.

If you focus on the thing you should be, you'll do it well
and you'll then be able to give the next task your full
attention. Big companies have learned rather painfully
that it's not possible to focus on too many things well.

When multi-billion dollar corporations buy other companies
outside their field of expertise, even if they're billion
dollar organizations, they often drive them into the
ground. They wanted to conquer the world but found out
that they better stick to what they know.

Remember the big W on the wall? You do have that W on
your wall, don't you? Well, put an F next to it.

This stands for FOCUS.

A few years ago, I owned two companies at the same time.
One was established but not wildly profitable. The new one
needed all my time, since it was just getting started.
They weren't related at all. Completely different
industries.

Both suffered because they each needed a lot of attention...
If I had just focused on my primary goals, I would've been
miles ahead. As it was, it cost me over $30,000 and 6
months of wasted effort.

Learning experience...

For you, use other people's experience to teach you those
painful lessons - and notice what happens when you take
your eye off the ball, too. Pay attention. Learn...

Stephen Covey uses the metaphor of the compass. It always
points true north. Your internal compass needs to do the
same thing. Operate on principles or those principles will
operate on you. They won't change. You must change.

Success will come to you...

...if you're patient and if you put your mind on what is
most important right now. I know, you want it now. Why
should you have to work so hard?

Get used to it. That's life. We're here, we live and
we're gone. You are governed under the same rules as
everyone else.

Life is too fleeting to be willy-nilly all over the place.

FOCUS and you will reach your enormous potential.

Now's The Time



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so
many tomorrows."
-Michael Landon

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What would happen if I put that off until later?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session

----------------------------------

My parents were recently up north visiting from their home
in Florida.

On their last night here, they stayed at my uncle's camp.
So I drove an hour and a half into the mountains to see
them one more time before they left.

Just as I was pulling into the little "one horse town" of
Sherburne, I noticed that I was getting very low on gas,
but I told myself that I'd be able to get some gas on the
way back home.

Well, it was nearly 7 o'clock when I arrived, and we were
having such a good time, that it was 1:30 in the morning
before we knew it.

When I started the vehicle, the gauge was reading even
lower than it did when I pulled in. I felt lucky that the
camp was higher in elevation than the town, so I did a lot
of coasting in neutral. Boy, was I happy to see the
traffic light in town. A quick right and I'd be filling
up...

But the gas station was closed.

Oh no.

I was running on fumes, and nothing was open - not even a
bar!

Four miles to Earlville!? Uh. I'll never make it.

But with no choice, it was north to Earlville... at forty
miles an hour to conserve gas. Man, it seemed all uphill!
Where were the downhill areas?

Finally, mercifully I made it to Earlville... only to find
that their gas station was closed, too.

I was sunk. What to do? What to do?

I was remembering the time twenty two years ago, when I
used my mom's car and didn't put any gas in it before
coming home. She ripped me a new one as she told me how
she coasted into the gas station after the engine died.
I'm not going to be so lucky this time.

Keep going north...

Oh, if I get out of this, I'll never let it get below a
quarter tank again. I swear.

Twelve minutes and seven a-g-o-n-i-z-i-n-g miles later, I
see Colgate University. Oh, thank God. There is no way
that the gas station will be closed, not in a college town
like Hamilton. Now if I can just make it to the gas
station.

There it is!!

And the lights are on. Hooray!! Yippee!!

Oh. Thank you, God in Heaven. And yes, I coasted in, in
neutral, just to make sure I made it all the way.

During the rest of the trip home, I felt lucky to have
been given this lesson. Partly because I didn't lose
anything in the process of learning... many lessons involve
lots of pain. And mostly because it was a lesson that will
most certainly serve me well in the weeks, months and years
to come.

You don't put off things that should be done now.

I should have assumed that the mini-market would close. I
didn't need to put it off. And I should have paid
attention to the clock.

As I was praying for an open gas station, I was
"shoulding" all over myself, and the good part was, I was
listening.

It was my fault.

And the lesson was learned... again.

And in taking complete responsibility instead of cursing
the store, I will have once again set a course in motion...
to be paying attention to situations where my decisions
affect outcomes.

No, you can't always plan for everything. And no,
nobody's perfect.

But you can be intelligent. Stupidity is no excuse.
Ignorance is definitely not bliss. It's loss. Pain.
Possibly death.

Michael Landon was best known for his starring roles in
Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and Highway to
Heaven. He lived hard, worked hard, partied hard and put
off eating healthy.

I'll never forget his final appearance with Johnny
Carson's Tonight Show in 1991. He said that he had
pancreatic cancer. For people not in the know, this is one
of the most deadly cancers. Most people don't survive
longer than a few months after diagnosis.

His wife had been pushing him to adopt a more vegetarian
lifestyle for years. But he just put it off. There was
always time to start eating right... right?

Not long before his Tonight Show appearance, in constant
agony, facing death, he finally gave into her pressure.
And he told Johnny that the pain from the cancer was out of
this world. Simply terrible.

But, he said, from the day he started exclusively drinking
the vegetable juices his wife prepared for him, the pain
stopped completely. Just like that. So understandably, he
was in good spirits on the show.

Unfortunately, it was too late.

The cancer had progressed too far - his body was too toxic
for the pure, cleansing food to save him.

So the message today is this, whatever is pressing,
whatever job has to be done or situation needs to be
attended to, do it now.

Sounds simple right?

Well, it is.

Pull out your copy of First Things First - get your
planner out - look at what is important in your life... and
attend to it.

And you'll find that when you finally start paying
attention to the big things, the important stuff, the
important people, you'll feel... well, it's hard to put
into words.

At worst it reduces the frequency of angry fights with
others over your "forgetting" things. People WILL notice
the difference in you.

And at best, you'll be setting in motion a habit that
could transport you to the top of your profession. It can
make you admired and respected by everyone you know. It
can give you a peace of mind that few enjoy.

Ask constantly, "What COULD happen if I put this off?"

Join the few. It's not lonely there.

How Many Of Your Problems Are Truly Problems?



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote

----------------------------------

"Joy is the life of man's life."
-Benjamin Whichcote

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"How can I think about this situation so that I can enjoy
it to the fullest?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

It's nearly impossible to be in a good mood all the time.
No question about it.

People who are don't get to move about without supervision.

But it IS possible to take just about anything that could
happen to you and USE it to feel good... happy, empowered,
strong.

A woman I know used to look at the fact that her now ex-
spouse did everything possible to sabotage her finishing
college, and felt upset whenever she thought about it. It
seemed to her that she would have been much farther along
in her career, she'd probably live in a much nicer home,
etc. if she had been able to finish college right after
high school.

This was a constant source of despair. She felt that if
she had not married him, her life would be so much better
today.

I told her that I didn't believe in that; that I feel that
there is a reason for everything... even though it often
doesn't seem that way.

If you examine your own life, I think you'll see that
those things that get you down often are, in truth, the
source of some of your greatest joys and may have set the
direction at some of the most important crossroads of your
life.

In her case, as a result of her being married, she had
moved to a different city, where she got a great job and
flourished in it. She made a lot of great friends whom she
loves deeply. She has a daughter that she wouldn't trade
for the world. Plus, the move to the new city made it
possible for her to ultimately meet and marry the man she
calls her soul mate.

So, none of the great parts of her life would exist if it
wasn't for her first marriage.

Although it wasn't the wisest thing to do at the time, it
was now ridiculous to beat herself up for succumbing to the
pressure her ex-husband applied all those years ago. I
helped her to realize that it's BECAUSE of her decision to
marry at a young age and not finish college immediately
that gave her all the things that she enjoys most about her
life.

She ultimately got her degree and joined the ranks of CPA,
just as she would have if she stayed in college to begin
with.

If she had done it differently, nothing that she holds so
dear today would be in her life. Kind of like the movie,
"It's A Wonderful Life," huh?

After I pointed that out, she realized that problems are
not problems at all.

Problems, as we call them, are situations that either
teach us to go forward more intelligently, or they're dead
ends. But they can only be dead ends if we decide they'll
be.

If we hold onto our old decisions, "bad" breaks, and
situations that didn't work out for us in the short run,
using them to remind us that we're just not meant to be
happy, that we're not good enough, that we'll never get
another chance...

...then that's exactly what our life's story will be.

Even when things are great, it's still possible to look
back with regret, isn't it? How does it make you feel when
you do that?

Like crap?

Then you just need perspective.

Look at all those situations that appear to have been
tragedies. See what they meant to you in terms of people
you met as a result. Career moves that worked out well.
How about family, health, location, attitude, schooling and
other learning? What about skills you now have that you
may not have acquired if your "problem" never happened?

Do this for every "problem" you ever had that you think or
even "know" stopped you or limited your life in some way.

I think... no, I know that you'll find otherwise.

There are no such things as problems.

Shakespeare said, "Nothing is either good or bad, but
thinking makes it so." You see, there are certain
indisputable principles of life, and this is one of them.

Just because you've managed to live for 20, 40 or even 80
years and this never occurred to you doesn't mean it's not
true.

There is nothing more true. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing.

Once you start to instantly "feel" deep inside you that
this thing that just happened to you is actually your next
gift, your next chance to grow, to gain peace of mind, to
finally understand that there IS such a thing as a problem-
free life...

...that's when you'll stop living with wild mood swings.
That is when you'll realize that you can reduce and even
get off your happy pills because your mental focus isn't on
problems any more. That's when you'll start doing things
that used to make you nervous and scared and you won't be
scared ay more.

When you accept the unwanted hurdles that pop up daily as
simply a part of your path and move over them like someone
who's on the way somewhere, then every day will go a lot
smoother and happier.

So do this...

Write down some rotten stuff that's happened to you in the
last year or so. Then look for the silver lining in each
one. Write down the good that came out of each one. If
you can't, then you're not looking with intention of
finding it... because it IS there.

Write them down and carry the list with you. Then, the
next time you find yourself in an irritated mood, pull out
your list and see what all your hurdles have actually done
for you.

I bet you'll smile.

And isn't that better than fuming? You'd better say yes!

What Am I Waiting For?



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"When you are feeling fear of some project or idea or
dream, ask yourself, 'What am I still curious enough about
to override my fear?' Follow your curiosity like a
delicious scent leading you to a kitchen. Let your
curiosity peel back the dry, bitter skin of drudgery to
find the sweet fruit of fun at the core. Focus on what you
love rather than fixating on the feelings of discomfort
that sometimes accompany desire."
- Carol Lloyd

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What the heck am I waiting for?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I remember them all too well.

Sunday evenings...

I was eighteen. And for as long as I could remember, I
dreaded Sunday evenings.

That was the time when I thought about all the homework
and studying I hadn't done. I dreaded not being prepared.

But I still didn't prepare.

It would have only taken 1-3 hours.

But it just sat there. Untouched.

Man, I HAD to go out and party. It WAS the weekend after
all.

And the chores. Well, no. I had tried like hell to avoid
those, too. That's what the typical fights then were
usually about.

What was wrong with me?

The laziest kid my 12th grade English teacher had EVER
seen in his 20 years of teaching.

Nice label.

That didn't change for quite some time.

After I began to learn about self-image things got clearer.

Giving myself a reason for being alive melted a lot of fear.

Noticing how little actions can quickly lead to large
accomplishments was exciting.

But that wasn't my focus for nearly 25 years.

MY focus was pleasure at all costs. Even if the cost was
mental anguish at putting off the things that everyone else
told me were important.

If only I had been conditioned to feel extraordinary joy
at accomplishment - to shrink down the size of big jobs -
to have some great role models that could have taught me
what was truly important.

When I think now about all the accomplishments I've
stacked up over the last 16 years, the joys I've felt, the
inner peace I feel from knowing that I am becoming who I've
dreamed about being, there is no effort too big and no job
too demanding that it is not worth what it would take... if
the only rewards were those.

You know, three to four minutes isn't enough to completely
change a life. But stacked up, a lot of the right "few
minutes" can be enough to change course and have a life of
distinction.

It doesn't matter what your aim, there is nothing you
can't do if you just begin.

Over the years, I've watched my sister in-law create some
of the most beautiful quilts right before my eyes - even
while a party is going on around her. She'll be talking,
laughing, listening, telling stories, having a good time.
And all the while, she's "multi-tasking" making her art.

To do great things, you've got to let go of the small
things.
If you want to be more, then look at what you're hanging
on to. Don't turn your head. Look at it. It will probably
be painful.

Don't be afraid to look in the mirror.

To get out of whatever your current situation is, you have
to know where you are. If you don't, you can't possibly
know where to turn.

Honesty, especially with yourself, is one of the greatest
virtues you can possess.

And if you are completely honest with yourself - if you
have your eyes open - I know you'll see that no matter how
large the goal or task or "problem," no matter how
impossible you believe it to be, it's almost impossible to
fail if you will just get started doing something...

It's the hardest thing to do.

But lean.

Roll.

Crawl.

Call for help.

Whatever you have to do.

Look at that task.

Shrink it.

Make it tiny.

Itsy bitsy.

It's definitely not going to hurt you.

Pay attention to the reward. Write down what you will
get, and what you will start to become if you get this
"horrible" thing done.

You WILL get something. THAT is what you must focus on.
You WILL become different IF you hang onto that image.

Feel it ahead of time. Over and over. Breathe deep. In
and out.

And get started.

Soon it will be over, and you get to feel for real what
you had just imagined.

Watch For Potholes, But Keep Your Goal In Focus



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you
take your eyes off your goal."
-Hannah More

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What have I been paying attention to for the last hour?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

It is absolute genius to be aware of the obstacles in
front of you whenever you start any kind of undertaking.
If you don't, then you will be surprised when things go
wrong. After a wreck, you'll likely be overheard to say
things like, "It was a total shock. There's nothing I
could've done about it."

And the other comical thing is that most people focus ONLY
on the obstacles. They never get where they want to be
because after they get started, hurdles appear. And
suddenly the entire focus becomes the hurdles. The goal
gets fuzzier and harder to see. "What are we doing this
for?" is a common thought.

This might seem obvious as you read this, but as I've
watched people for many years, I suggest that a main reason
most people don't get where they originally steer their
ship is that they have no clue where the rocks are... and
once they see those rocks, they throw their compass away.
They get so focused on the obstacles and turned around that
it often is impossible to reach their original objective.

Last week, we were watching our seven-year-old
Goddaughter, Mary Kate, for the day. In our back yard, is
a big wooden slide/swing set. At the top of the slide,
there's a large wooden brace that helps reinforce the
structure. Well, MK kept hitting her head on it before she
slid down the slide. She must've hit her head 15 out of 20
times.

After a while, she'd smack her head and always follow it
up with, "Ouch! I always hit my head on this!"

I suggested to her that she might try saying, "I keep my
head away from the wood," and "My head feels good."

Notice I DIDN'T say, "I don't hit my head on the wood."
That would force her mind to focus only on the obstacle,
and not what she wanted, which was to keep her head away
from it.

Now, I only mentioned this to her once.

Well, she started chanting it... over and over!

And in the next 40 or 50 trips up and down, she did not
hit her head once.

That's the power of focus... and affirmation to help you
keep your focus on the right actions and on the benefit.

Experience tells me that you can apply this in every area
of life to get rapid results.

If you want to lose weight, create a few affirmations to
help give you direction... and help you stay focused on
your outcome and benefits. Repeat them over and over. A
few times a day.

Remember, this is how your brain works...

It's not possible for you to hear something once and have
it change your actions permanently... unless it's an
incredibly emotional or traumatic experience.

You could repeat phrases like these...

"I love the texture and taste of vegetables."
"I stay away from processed non-foods."
"My body is becoming perfect in its proportions."

Of course there are many others...

Since every area of life has its high peaks and its low
valleys, you can most certainly elevate your chances of
achieving your outcomes in any or all of them by applying
this simple little "secret."

Go back to any time in your life when you reached your
outcome, even if that outcome was just peace... relaxation.

You probably knew what the obstacles were and you planned
to overcome them. So you focused on your goal and when you
were nearing a potential delay or "pothole," you saw it,
navigated around it and moved on... without commotion.

You've no doubt done this thousands of times...

If you want to reach your outcomes in life and do so with
little stress...

One of the keys to being successful at a skill set and
enjoying the process of accomplishment in it is being able
to get to the point where you can become unconsciously
aware, without effort, of the obstacles to success and
happily move around them without concern... again, without
apparent effort.

That takes practice.


So practice!

We Reap What We Sow



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"My competitive spirit didn't stop because I became
physically disabled. I never said, "Why me?" After my car
accident, I still said, "Now, what's my purpose?"
-Joseph Russell (Paralympian, Powerlifting)

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"Isn't it time I stopped feeling sorry for myself & got
going?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

Many people don't realize how close athletics are to
"real" life. A lot of people forget that a sport isn't
just playing the game once or twice a week. The
preparation before the performance is where the paycheck
and/or glory are earned.

You too, won't get where you're going in life, whether
it's losing the weight, stopping your most insidious habit
or improving your financial health by waiting for the
performance...

Every day is the practice. Every minute.

I used to be one of the people who blamed everyone else
for my problems. I ALWAYS asked, "Why me?"

I had this dream of a dream life where I told everyone
what to do and they did it. I wanted to play at the beach
every day. I wanted to be friends with famous people. I
wanted everyone to like me, but I didn't want to do
anything for anyone. I wanted to be a starter on my school
teams, but I didn't want to practice hard. I wanted to be
rich, but didn't want to work hard, learn or take orders.

I am not making this up for effect... that's who I was to
the core.

By the time I hit my mid-twenties, I was broke in every
sense. But I've come to learn that there are no accidents
in life. Everything has a purpose, even tragedy. Every
experience tests us to see what we'll do with it.

My life and millions of other people's lives didn't get
better until we realized that every benefit demands a
payment... Just like a store that requires money for their
goods, life demands that you put in effort and sacrifice
for its rewards. There are no overnight success stories.

The good news is that usually, the sacrifice is only
inside your own head. And this sacrifice doesn't take away
FROM you. It actually adds TO you...

...Life gives you back exactly what you put out.

If you think a pill is going to take your depression and
anxiety away, you're still hiding from the truth...

...The truth that few people care about the pain of others
when it's self-inflicted. The attention you're getting is
only pity. Not empathy.

When people like Joseph Russell take all the bad breaks
they've been given and ignore them and continue on to find
and live a life of purpose, you've got to ask yourself, "Am
I not understanding ANY of what life's about?"

There are no victims here...

We're all only players. We all have a role. So let's
find our roles and start joining the teams we'd like to be
on.

Life is about learning...

Think about the average six-year-old. They know next to
nothing. It's their role to learn how to communicate, to
share, to read directions, to listen, to learn how to get a
15-minute job done in 15 minutes.

That never changes. After we leave our coaches and
teachers and move away from Mom and Dad, why do we stop
learning about the basics of life? School is not out.
It's never out.

If you haven't already, let's make right now the minute
that you decide to learn what it takes to right your ship.
Get it into your head that things aren't going to get
better until you start smiling, and realize that every
single problem you have doesn't start with how you're
talked to, what someone else did to you, where you live,
where you work, who you're married to...

A problem begins when you see a situation and react
improperly to it. The problem usually isn't the situation.
The problem is your reaction TO the situation.

Shakespeare said, "Nothing is either good or bad, but
thinking makes it so."

So if it's all an illusion, why not choose a happy illusion?

Now.

So smile, and focus on what benefits you'll get today if
you bring enthusiasm and honest effort to the situations
you'll encounter.

I know that's a hard reality. But the longer it takes you
to face it, the longer your life will be less than you'd
prefer.

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?!



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Concentrate on finding your goal,
then concentrate on reaching it."
-Col. Michael Friedsam

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What would I like to be and do, more than anything else?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

The only way you are ever going to get what you want in
life is if you KNOW what you want.

What do you want?

To be treated with kindness? To make a mil lion? To get
the girl or guy? To get rid of some awful habit that has
complete control over you? To live at a normal weight?

How badly do you want it?

A movie about the early life of Homer Hickam is now on
video. It's called 'October Sky.' As a teenager in 1957,
he saw Sputnik, the Soviet satellite streaking across the
sky, and from that day forward, he wanted to make rockets.

He learned that if he won a regional science fair, he
could get a college scholarship and avoid working in the
coal mine, where most everyone else in town worked.

First he had the stick, the pain of working in the mine.
Then he found his carrot, working at NASA.

So he had an advantage that most other kids in the country
didn't have... a very emotional reason WHY he had to
succeed.

Homer and his 3 friends "The Rocket Boys," won not just
the regional, but the NATIONAL Science Fair. Homer got his
college scholarship and now trains astronauts for NASA.

This is the 2nd of Stephen Covey's '7 Habits of Highly
Effective People.' - Starting with the end in mind.

Unless you know what you want, you can't achieve it.

"I want to stop falling apart at the thought of (taking
some specific action)." "I want to stop smoking or
overeating." "I want to get a promotion and a raise."

No matter what your ambition, the "end" you have in mind
is also lined with markers along the way. They let you
know if you're getting closer.

One big reason why 19 out of 20 people fail to reach ANY
goal they set is that even if they are specific about what
they want, the first time they mess up, they often say, "I
knew I couldn't do it. I don't know why I even try."

And that is that. Bye-bye, goal. Hello self-image of a
loser.

Your dreams aren't just going to be handed to you...

It takes many little actions to get there. Take it one
hour at time. Make your goal not to give up for just one
hour.

Big goal: To ear n $40,000 a year. (Or plug your own
number in.)

Intermediate goal: Buy and read a book on selling big
ticket items, or building a down line, or sewing, or
whatever the next logical step is on the way to your goal.

Make your goal reading (or other action) for an hour
today...

Do the same tomorrow.

Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) told me that
only 1 out of 7 people in the U.S. EVER goes into a book
store and buys a book, IN THEIR ENTIRE LIVES!

That means that 6 out of 7 refuse to learn what they need
to know to get what they want.

Take the next step today...

Give yourself hourly goals in the context of your larger
dream. I think... no, I know that you'll start to get
excited when you achieve your one hour goal today.

Then go out and achieve it again tomorrow.

Remember, when you mess up, and you will occasionally,
it's no big deal. You didn't fail. You just delayed the
attainment of the big goal. Just get up, dust yourself off
and set a goal for the next hour.

Then pat yourself on the back when you achieve it.

I'm over here, cheering for you now. Woooooooo!!!

How Can You Leave Your Mark In The World?



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

(Crying) "I need to try to be successful in business so I
can take care of 700 families. I put my home phone number
on our web site & I have women calling saying they don't
know how they'll pay the mortgage. They don't know what
they're going to do. I think the remaining staff is
pulling together with the view that we want to make things
happen for them. We need to find a way to take care of
them. And I think it's going to be a different kind of
drive than I've ever had before. It's not about my family.
I can kiss my kids tonight. But other people don't get to
kiss their kids tonight. And I just have to help them...
There's only one reason to be in business, and that's to
help 700 families."
-Howard Lutkin (CEO-Cantor Fitzgerald, NYC)

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What is my mission and purpose in life? Why am I here?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

So many people go through their lives without discovering
it. Most don't really look for it. I'm talking about
purpose.

Now don't get me wrong. I don't have any idea what "the"
meaning of life is. But each of us has been given the
unbelievable gift of being able to define our own...
individually.

Howard Lutkin, whose 1,000 employee company was decimated
by the attack on the World Trade Center, lived with true
purpose before the attacks. He created a company where
around 50 trillion dollars a year flowed through. Yes, I
said trillion. The wives of a few employees called him to
say that, if their husbands had to die, they're glad it was
while they worked for him, because they loved going to work
every day. And they loved working for him.

As he said in today's quote, he now has a different kind
of drive. He loves his people. They're like his family.
And he feels a strong responsibility towards the families
of his fallen employees.

Like the fictional character George Bailey in the movie,
"It's a Wonderful Life," Howard Lutkin inspires me to keep
even more firmly in my sight my purpose and mission in this
life.

And I share his tragic loss with you so that you can get a
sense of what it's like to live for something much bigger
than yourself. Unfortunately for Howard, he may never get
over the feeling of responsibility he voiced over those
tragic deaths.

But for you, before you take on a mission that is solely
guilt ridden, do what you have to do (and I'll try to help)
to find your purpose. Find something to spend your days or
nights doing that will make a difference to someone.
Something you love to do.

You don't have to run a multi-national company. You don't
need to be the boss. If you're a teacher, for example,
learn everything you can about teaching so that kids learn.
Find the passion again. Whatever your profession is, look
for reasons to excel. Stop hiding. Take risks.

Make some dust in the world. Let other people know you've
been there. Stop worrying about what others think.
Instead, make them want to join you. Take a break from the
daily TV routine. Make some news yourself. Help someone...
even if it's only with their homework. And do it
regularly.

Missions aren't usually accomplished in a couple hours a
month.

Isn't the one shot you've got on this earth worth a little
more effort than the minimum required?

I'm hoping you'll say yes.

I get emails from all over the world with stories about
how the anxiety and depression people have suffered with
for years were reduced and literally evaporated when their
lives took on a greater meaning to them... when their focus
changed from their own problems (or perceived problems) to
something bigger than themselves.

When their whole focus shifted from the inside to the
outside, everything changed... everything.

Look inside. Pay attention to your every thought.

If you notice yourself thinking the Why me - Why them -
This will never work - I hate ____ type thoughts all the
time, then you're problem focused. If so, I'll bet you any
amount of money that you experience a great deal of anxiety
and fear in your everyday life.

Our world is far from being perfect. Hoping for it to be
is completely fruitless and a waste of time.

We can only accept what is and do our best to live in it
and, with the right amount of passion and drive, to help
make a positive difference to others.

Right now, the world needs a lot more people working to
make it more fun, safer, friendlier, more productive,
cleaner, and more educated. Oh, yeah. I almost forgot...

We need a lot more love. Love makes all these things easy.

Do yourself a favor. Read this story when you can be by
yourself, not when you have someone breathing down your
back. Trust me. See you at the bottom.

...Don't major in the minors.

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning-
disabled children, the father of one of the school's
students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten
by all who attended.

After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he
offered a question. "Everything God does is done with
perfection. Yet, my son, Shay, cannot learn things as
other children do. He cannot understand things as other
children do. Where is God's plan reflected in my son?"

The audience was stilled by the query.

The father continued. "I believe," the father answered,
"that when God brings a child like Shay into the world, an
opportunity to realize the Divine Plan presents itself.
And it comes in the way people treat that child."

Then, he told the following story:

Shay and I walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were
playing baseball. Shay asked, "Do you think they will let
me play?" Shay's father knew that most boys would not want
him on their team. But the father understood that if his
son were allowed to play it would give him a much-needed
sense of belonging.

Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and
asked if Shay could play. The boy looked around for
guidance from his teammates. Getting none, he took matters
into his own hands and said, "We are losing by six runs,
and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on
our team and we'll try to put him up to bat in the ninth
inning."

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a
few runs but was still behind by three.

At the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and
played in the outfield. Although no hits came his way, he
was obviously ecstatic just to be on the field, grinning
from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored
again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the
potential winning run was on base.

Shay was scheduled to be the next at-bat.

Would the team actually let Shay bat at this juncture and
give away their chance to win the game?

Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that
a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn't even know
how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the
ball. However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the
pitcher moved a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay
could at least be able to make contact.

The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed.

The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the
ball softly toward Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung
at the ball and hit a slow ground ball to the pitcher. The
pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could easily have
thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been
out and that would have ended the game.

Instead, the pitcher took the ball and threw it on a high
arc to right field, far beyond reach of the first baseman.
Everyone started yelling, "Shay, run to first. Run to
first."

Never in his life had Shay ever made it to first base. He
scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.
Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!"

By the time Shay was rounding first base, the right
fielder had the ball. He could have thrown the ball to the
second baseman for a tag. But the right fielder understood
what the pitcher's intentions had been, so he threw the
ball high and far over the third baseman's head.

Shay ran toward second base as the runners ahead of him
deliriously circled the bases towards home.

As Shay reached second base, the opposing shortstop ran to
him, turned him in the direction of third base, and
shouted, "Run to third!"

As Shay rounded third, the boys from BOTH teams were
screaming, "Shay! Run home!"

Shay ran home, stepped on home plate and was cheered as
the hero, for hitting a "grand slam" and winning the game
for his team.

"That day," said the father softly with tears now rolling
down his face, "the boys from both teams helped bring a
piece of the Divine Plan into this world."

And now, a footnote to the story. We all have thousands
of opportunities a day to help realize God's plan. So many
seemingly trivial interactions between two people present
us with a choice: Do we pass along a spark of the Divine?
Or do we pass up that opportunity, and leave the world a
bit colder in the process?

I'm back.

Wasn't that incredible?

The first time I read it, I missed something important. I
don't want you to miss it.

Shay had played baseball a number of times. Before that
day, no one had gone out of their way to help him. He had
never made it to first base before.

Shay may never completely be able to appreciate what
happened that day, even though it was probably the thrill
of his life.

The biggest thing that happened was that over 20 other
kids got to experience what helping someone else can do for
them. They got to feel the excitement that you can feel by
putting yourself second, instead of first.

The world was made better just then... from the ripple
effect it had on them, and now that this story is getting
out.

And I too feel privileged to be able to share this story
with you so that you can get closer to what may be the
meaning of life.

I think it's to help ease the burden of it for
others...and feel that joy.

Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues,
but the parent of all others."
-Cicero

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"Comparing my life to the homeless person on the
street, what do I feel grateful for?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I felt I needed to ask a particularly pointed question
today, by including the reference to the homeless person.
Why?

Because most people who have a job, a home, a family, and
a country that lets you live in freedom, for the most part
don't appreciate it. You take it for granted. And
comparing yourself to someone who would be grateful for
1/1000th of what you probably have puts things in better
perspective...

...especially when you get angry at trivial stuff that
doesn't really matter. :)

A perfect example...

I recently saw a movie starring Nicholas Cage and Meg
Ryan, 'City of Angels.' Cage plays an angel, Seth, whose
"job" is to take people who die onto the next place.

Ryan plays a cardiologist, Maggie, who loses a patient on
the operating table. Seth takes Maggie's patient...

...and falls in "love" with her. First he learns what
love is, then he falls. Ultimately, he decides to give up
his place in eternity, to become human... and to die like
all humans must.

Shortly after he goes through the painful process of
becoming human, they have less than 24 hours together and
she has a tragic fatal accident.

His emotional pain is beyond description.
He gave up eternal "life" for her and now he doesn't even
have her.

Soon after, his best angel friend asked him if he knew
this was going to happen, would he still have done it?

He said, "I would rather have had one breath of her hair,
one kiss of her lips, one touch of her hand, than an
eternity without it... One."

It was at that moment that I renewed my conviction that no
matter how bad things could get, no matter what tragedy
befalls me, I'm grateful for even the smallest of things.

But this feeling can be fleeting and of little value
unless you actually take the time to acknowledge it....
Regularly.

To do that you must recognize what you have. If you
don't, you'll regularly go on mourning the tiniest of
inconsequential crap. And literally billions of people do
exactly that every day.

Keep in mind the homeless person and Seth.

What can you be thankful for?

Does it HAVE to be your new car? Can't it be just a smile?

How about that dinner that was made for you last night?
Did you shiver last night as you slept? Many did. Do you
have a job? Marketable skills? A nice neighbor? New
shoes? Any shoes?

What's all this about? What is gratitude?

It's simply a way for us to feel good any time we want...
for free. And if we share it with others, it's a way for
them to feel good, too... any time you want.

Can you see why Cicero has such an exalted opinion of
gratitude?

Now take a minute and find out what you have to feel
grateful for... And if it's someone else, tell him or her.

How Lucky Am I?



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"What leads to unhappiness is making pleasure the chief
aim."
--William Shenstone

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"How did I get so lucky to have the people that are in my
life?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

Until I was 24 years old, I was the king of laziness.
Pleasure was ALL I wanted. So certainly, I found what I
thought was it. But I was unhappy most of the time. No
matter where I was or who I was with, I wanted to be
somewhere else and with someone else.

By then, I'd never dated anyone longer that about 3 weeks
and I dated a fair amount. I always wanted someone better.
But no one ever explained to me that if I lived
differently, enjoying each moment as much as possible,
helping other people whenever I could, and by giving my
absolute best at work, I would be able to get more pleasure
in life than if I played all day, everyday.

I can tell you that since 1987, I have worked more hours
than 99.9% of the world's population. Yet during that
time, I have experienced more true joy than I ever knew
existed in the world.

During my pleasure pursuits, I was miserable. I didn't
like myself. I didn't trust many people, because I,
myself, was untrustworthy. I figured all people were
generally like me.

Think about the movie stars and rock stars that are so
strung out that they kill themselves with drugs and
alcohol. They have the false belief that everything has to
be fun RIGHT NOW or it sucks.
T
he truth is your happiness has more to do with serving
other people than you might be willing to consider at this
moment.

Adjust your daily focus to how you can help others and
your career will flourish, your relationships will blossom,
your health will shine. And you will look back at the end
of your life and be satisfied beyond measure.

Let's say that you don't even like half the people you
live and work with. Nobody's perfect, but we are all
pretty nice people at the root of it. If you force
yourself to ask this question with total expectation of
getting an answer, you will be shocked at how many good
qualities that you can find about everyone you know or meet.
Take the next 24 hours and ask yourself, "What can I
admire about _____?" concerning everyone you meet or spend
time with, especially the people you don't necessarily like
all that much.

This exercise, if done seriously, will allow you to see
people for who they really are. You'll find out how really
lucky you are. Those are the people in your life.
They may be there just to teach you valuable lessons...
Have you ever heard, "Let's make the most of it?"
Your life IS the people in it.

So to make the most of your life, make the most of those
people and write down today's question...
And ask it often.

Empowering Questions = Wisdom



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"I had six honest serving men-they taught me all I knew:
Their names were Where and What and When and Why and How
and Who."
--Rudyard Kipling

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What kind of questions have I been asking myself in the
last hour?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

Notice that Rudyard Kipling didn't say that those
questions taught him quite a bit. He said they taught him
all he knew.

And he knew quite a bit!

You are asking questions all day long just through the
normal process of thinking...

And depending on the questions you ask consciously (which
programs your unconscious mind to go on asking them in the
future without your conscious knowledge), you either
experience emotions and develop attitudes that support you
in getting what you want in life, or you experience anxiety
and worry.

If you are depressed and anxious and have thoughts of
worry about what horrible thing is going to happen next,
you must look to your thoughts. Watch them. Too much
research exists to conclude anything but this...

If you focus your thoughts on empowering outcomes and ask
yourself questions that give you answers that inspire you,
then you'll find that your anxiety and panic attacks will
reduce. And with enough practice, they can even go away.
I don't care if you've had chronic depression for decades.

This works.

Your thoughts create chemicals- either depressants or
stimulants. Studies prove that when rotten pictures are
shown to people, their brains produce rotten chemicals on
the spot...
The same ones that pharmaceutical companies make when they
develop depressants. How do you think they developed these
chemicals? They study depressed people!!!

Stimulants are made the same way. That's how many of
these drugs are first discovered. Happy pictures, great
questions, emotions of elation and joy.

Fast! Let's study the chemicals we were just able to
produce in that brain!

We just get too many emails from people, who've been
depressed and living in panic for years, that have been
able to change their lives entirely by changing their
questions and their affirmations (beliefs).

This daily letter alone has helped to transformed
thousands. And all it does is change your focus for a
while and urges you to continue your new focus... Because
if you do something enough, it becomes a habit.

You can try to escape your problems by changing your
environment, but... you take your thoughts with you!

Start asking yourself questions that empower. To make
this stick, you'll have to write them down and read them
throughout the day. Yes, even if you're rich and famous.

Questions like these:

How can I do a better job?
What is really cool about me?
What do I like about my job?
What's neat about my kids?
Who loves me and who do I love?
What's useful about this "problem?"
What can the next hour mean to me if I get this task done?

Each of these questions, and there are literally thousands
more you can ask consciously, has answers. And the answers
make you feel good. Why? Because they force you to focus
on what's right. What's good.

Does it mean that your life suddenly becomes perfect? Of
course not. But when you are looking in the right
directions, you'll see just far enough to get encouraged.
Even if your goal is only to not slit your wrist today.
Hey, you have to start somewhere, right?

Every day that you achieve your modest goal is
confirmation that you can do more. And then more...

And when you follow that accomplishment up with the
question, "How did I do that?" you get an empowering
answer. An answer that teaches you how to do it again
later.

This is why Rudyard Kipling could say the statement above
with heartfelt conviction...

And why I'm optimistic for you today... All day. And every
day.

Write questions down like the ones above in any area of
life that is troubling you.

Read them often. A few times every day.

And you absolutely, positively CANNOT fail to make each
day of your life more fun, no matter what outside stressors
are working on you.

And isn't that how you want today and the rest of your
life to be? (Now THAT was an empowering question!)

It Ain't Over Yet



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"The most rewarding things you do in life are often the
ones that look like they cannot be done."
- Arnold Palmer

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What can I do or say to fix this situation now?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

In the movie 'The Godfather,' there's a scene in it where
Robert Duvall (Tom) is given some news that Marlon Brando
(Godfather) isn't going to like at all. So as soon as he
can walk out the door, he does... to go break the bad news.

The guy who told Tom the bad news wants to know what the
hurry was. Tom says that Godfather likes to hear bad news
right away.

Well, because Godfather got the information quickly, he
was able to take immediate action and get his creative plan
under way...

And as a result, he got his way.

Oftentimes, mistakes and bad outcomes can be fixed, but
only if we act FAST.

In my business career, when there is a problem with an
important issue, I want to know about it as fast as
possible.

So I could worry longer?

No, so I could jump in my car and visit or pick up the
phone within seconds. Not minutes. Seconds.

One time I did the craziest stunt to keep a client who
said they never wanted to work with my book company again.

See, one of my employees didn't program the newest cash
register with all our titles before it was packed for an
event. So when the customers were lining up to pay for
their books, none of their purchases were scanning properly.

So now each title had to be manually entered into the
register... a painfully slow process when dozens of people
are waiting and waiting, many not very quietly.

Well, my contact person wasn't pleased.

When the phone call came in a month later, telling us we
were out, my office immediately called me on my cell phone,
I went to the office, picked up all my sales awards, packed
them into a large duffle bag and proceeded to this client's
office...

...a two and a half hour drive away.

When I walked in the door, you should've seen her face.

Total shock.

She told me that the board made the decision, and that
there was no sense in discussing it.

I made the case that if there were anyone in the world she
could trust to fix this situation, never to allow this to
happen again, it was me. That's when I began pulling the
awards out, explaining what they were for. Not to impress
her, but to show her it wasn't just talk.

These awards, I explained were the results of total
commitment to her and others in positions similar to hers.
I was recognized as the best, and that's what I promised
her... the best from the best.

I kept the account.

They were worth over $25,000 in sales per year.

By immediate action, creativity, and by not accepting
defeat, a lot of people won. She won. I won. And all
those book lovers she was responsible for won big.

And more importantly, I learned, again, that "It ain't
over 'til it's over."

So please, please... when all seems lost, and I know
sometimes the situations we often find ourselves in seem
hopeless, 90+% of the time it is not hopeless.

But 90% of the people quit.

I feel your frustration. No one is immune from life's
crashing waves of defeat and torment. No one.

But the only time we can truly lose is when we quit.

Breakthroughs usually come when it looks the darkest.

And when you find yourself in no-win situations and
consistently keep plugging away, you'll succeed so many
times that you will learn this, too. "It ain't over 'til
it's over."

So pick up the phone, get in your car, write that email,
make that apology, do whatever you have to do to fix
whatever isn't working.

Now. Yeah, right now.

You'll be so happy you did.

Even if things don't work out this time, you'll have put
yourself in a position to win. Do that enough times and
you'll be...

A winner in life.

Your Questions Make You... Or Break You



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"The smart ones ask when they don't know.
And sometimes when they do."
--Malcolm Forbes

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What would help me to ____?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

Questioning is one of the two main functions of the mind.
The other being affirming old and new beliefs. What do I
mean?

Well, all day long as information is pumped at you, you're
evaluating it so you can decide which of it you deem
necessary to focus on. You need to have a feeling about
what everything coming at you means so you can take the
most appropriate action or none at all.

Much of this questioning is unconscious. For example, if
you're driving and a man steps in front of your car, you
don't have to take a lot of time and say, "What does this
mean and what should I do?" No, that should be automatic.
As soon as you realize what's happening, you slam on the
brakes or swerve, avoiding a collision.

And it's our level of awareness of what's around us that
determines what we do...Our habitual questions, conscious
and unconscious (literally automatic).

If you thought I was incorrect about the last series of
events being automatic, you're right.

You get a gold star!

See, many people would "freeze up" and slam into the
person. Others would miss the brake and hit the gas.
Ooooh! Others would brake and keep the wheel straight.
Some might swerve away from the man only to hit the
oncoming traffic, or the other way... into other people.

It just depends on your awareness. And your conditioning.
Ever see people who just back right out of their driveways
into oncoming traffic without looking? It's amazing to
watch.

No awareness of what's going on around them! Their minds
are somewhere else completely.

The human mind has pictures and words flying in and out
all the time, and it keeps most of us from being aware of
what's going on around us. Many people are in a literal
daze most of the time.

Let's separate you from the multitudes, shall we?

How? I'm glad you asked.

Without getting lost in the minutiae (I don't want to home
in on driving skills), let's stay general and you can focus
in on it yourself.

What separates the winners in most situations from the
losers?

Most people's moment-by-moment questions just "fly in" to
their heads all throughout the day... while many truly
happy and successful people have a trained, practiced habit
of asking empowering, course correcting questions all the
time.

The sad truth, though, is that of those people, most of
them came about this good mental habit by accident. They
don't know how they got that way; the same way the larger
group, the "negative" thinkers got their habitual thought
patterns. The danger of this ignorance is that you can be
good at some skills and simply horrible at others. So it's
important to know how you succeed in one area of life so
you can duplicate it in others.

Are you starting to see the life altering power of
controlling your automatic questioning mechanism?

Good, because positive thinking is good, but you have to
be able to do it automatically without "thinking" to be a
true positive thinker and to able to reap the benefits.

A lot of people in the personal development field like to
put their twist on how positive thinking doesn't work.

It does work...

But like anything else, if you don't practice it, you stop
doing it. And since any kind of thinking, positive or not,
is something that is going on every second of the day
(except in our deepest levels of sleep), you really need to
practice it for you to develop mastery.

So positive thinking, while great, can't keep you from
getting sidetracked and backing out of your driveway into
oncoming traffic. That comes from awareness and getting
the right mental questions anchored into your nervous
system.

How?

By practice. So don't think that I'm going to tell you
that you can be a master of this in one day. One day goes
by, you're still getting rotten results with people and
projects and then you'd be even more cynical than before.

I'll give you an example of how our questioning dictates
what results we get. This weekend, my step-daughter
dropped a glass in the sink and glass went everywhere. The
probability was that it was on the floor, too, since it was
quite an explosion.

She had bare feet and was in no hurry to get some shoes on
before the cleaning began. So I ASKED her if she thought
some glass might have gotten on the floor. She said what
you'd expect from a thirteen-year-old...

"I don't know."

You see, at thirteen, references for many things in life
are limited. So questions like the ones I asked her don't
pop in as easily or even at all.

The trouble is, hundreds of millions of people who are
much older still fail to even think of asking these most
basic of questions most of the time (yours truly included).
If you aren't habitually (and eventually, unconsciously)
asking the most empowering questions of yourself, you're
going to be picking a lot of glass out of your feet... or
just making the same mistakes over and over again...

...Living a life with little joy, peace or accomplishment.

Take heart. You can learn to do this, habitually. And
with practice, it will get wired into your mind and body.
You'll avoid making stupid mistakes at the simplest of
tasks.

It's not easy, but it's simple to do. And there is a
difference.

There are thousands of empowering questions you can use in
your daily moments. Empowering questions don't only take
the shape of the ones that you see at the top of my daily
message.

They can be as simple as, "Could shards of glass have
fallen onto the floor?" And, "How can I hold this so it
won't fall?"

And please don't think this is too basic, in the scope of
the challenges you face each day, to make a difference.
Don't, Don't, Don't!

The awareness of this and then working at mastering it
helped me become the highest paid person in the world in my
field, and it can provide many other benefits for you.

At work, you can ask questions like, "What is he thinking
right now?" If you don't, you can't anticipate the right
thing to say NEXT! "Is it going to rain today?" is a
question that many people don't ask and end up getting wet.
Because if the answer is maybe, you can bring an umbrella.
Not even being aware enough to ask the question, means
higher cleaning bills, shoes that need to be replaced
sooner, poor image to others...

...and a poor self image.

"I can't do anything right. Why am I so stupid?" become
the questions that you come up with instead of ones that
could turn your life around in a flash.

We've only covered the most elementary building blocks of
question asking, but can't you feel a little of the power
already? Hey, this helped take me from living on four
wheels to standing on two feet.

Let's pick this up next time. There's more...

Lot's more.

Release the pain...and get on with life.



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"When I left Charlie's place, I asked God to get all the
badness, the sorrow, the hurt--all the anger--and leave it
in the dust and to let there be a new world, a new life."
-Reba McIntire

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What would happen if I just let go of all the sorrow,
pain and anger - just let it go?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I recently read a short story about Reba McIntire's life.
I gained a whole new appreciation for her.

If you're not familiar with her, she's sold more country
music records than any woman in history.

Her first marriage was very painful. Just one example of
the things she endured was her husband's demand that if
they had any children, she'd have to quit singing because
he wasn't going to change any diapers. Imagine a guy who's
got a wife who makes tens of millions of dollars, and he
wants her to quit because he won't help with the kids.

Schmuck...

He never made her feel like she did anything important.

But she never gave in to the treatment she got from him.
Instead, after 11 years of marriage, she divorced him.

That was 1987.

Since then, she's done more in her industry than anyone
before her.

You see, you don't have to give in to your challenges.
Use them to make you stronger.

Look at the nay-sayers and tell them they're wrong. Use
their criticism to feed your determination...

When someone tells you that you can't, double your
efforts. They're probably wrong.

And if the worst thing happens, if you think you can't...
be intelligent. Make sure you're not climbing a mountain
that no one could scale. But if it's doable and if you
have the resources, or if you can get them...

...Then get rid of the doubt. Say "I can do it."

Focus on your goal TODAY - RIGHT NOW, and get busy. Get
very busy.

Life isn't going to slow down for you.

If it can be done, you can do it. But not by sitting on
your behind.

I love it when I hear people complaining about how some
famous person they read about is horrible.

"Not an environmentalist, not a supporter of this cause,
they got a nose job, that's not their real hair color, what
do they do with all their money, how could they divorce
their wonderful spouse, what kind of hair-do is that, they
don't compete fairly..."

Oh my God!

And all the while, they're sitting in the back yard
stuffing themselves with that dessert they don't need,
washing it down with that beer that won't erase the fact
that they're a failure in just about every sense of the
word.

Do you do this?

Then stop it and get busy making a life for yourself.

Do other people do it to you?

Then ignore them. They're not worth getting upset over.
Are they?

Listen to people who've achieved what you want to achieve.
Seek them out. If you don't know any, then find them.
Read their books. Study what you need to learn.

Think about it. If everyone let criticism stop him or
her, no one would do anything. Be like the people that let
it fall right off their backs.

Let go of the pain... and accept no more of it. Be what
you need to be when you need to be it.

You're steel. Arrows of criticism can't harm you.

You're wood. You won't sink under the weight of doubt.

You're passionate. Your new goals are too important to
let anything get in your way.

And today is the day that you make great progress.
Tomorrow is just a dream. Right Now is the only currency
you've got...

...So wisely spend all your energy on getting where you
are supposed to be going... today.

Life Is Tough-The Key Is How You Respond



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Every experience that you have that doesn't
kill you can make you stronger."
-Unknown

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What must I do or think to stay in the state of mind
I need to be in to happily succeed today?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

People in the sales profession can rise to peaks of
emotion if a call goes well. In the next minute, their
mental state can be in the gutter, due to a bad call or
missed appointment.

In truth, we all face those situations during the day,
especially in dealing with other people who don't do what
we want them to do.

Let's face it. We all have, potentially, hundreds of let
downs every day... but we also have hundreds of possible
opportunities to feel good, or at least keep our attitude
and emotions even.

When your email is filled with Spam, when someone yells at
you on the phone, when you drove for an hour and your
appointment doesn't show up... you have a golden
opportunity to work on your mind and to improve yourself
and your prospects for the future.

Life is everything that's good... and not so good.

You can't change the fact that sooner or later, you're
going to get a flat tire or the battery will die. One day,
the phone is going to ring and the school nurse will tell
you that you have to pick up your child because she's sick.
Someone close to you is going to die without any warning.

Just the other day, we got an email from a guy who wanted
a type of product we don't carry. He was in an irritated
mood even before he got a response. He said something
about don't be a "#%@^*" snob about the product. Before we
even sent a response!

We told him that we didn't have what he wanted. He found
it elsewhere and he emailed back and went on another tirade
about how horrible we were. Thank God this guy found the
self-help product he was looking for, I thought, because
he's going to hurt a lot of people before he's through in
this life... and THEY need intervention!

I personally emailed him back, and told him that we would
be happy to send any future requests for this type of
product to the same place he found it, if he would let me
know where to send them.

Another tirade about how condescending I was and what poor
service we provided. On and on he went.

Tell me...

Do you flip people off when they make errors on the road?
Do you yell at people on the phone? When people do it to
you do you have to go have a cigarette or a drink to calm
down? Does your heart start pounding faster? Do you get
flustered and become unable to think clearly?

Understand that it's all part of life... daily life.

When you wake up tomorrow, chances are excellent that
someone is going to do something stupid on the road. Don't
shake your fist at him. You'll feel even worse and less
able to perform your daily duties. Plus, you'd be
diverting his attention from the road again!!

Think about the consequences of YOUR actions.

I learned about the power of concentration and mental
focus years ago, when I was selling face to face. I would
chant a mantra for about 15 minutes before I arrived at
each appointment. I chanted the same one before I started
to make phone calls. My focus was complete. I could not
be distracted. I learned, by failing to concentrate, that
I would starve if I didn't keep my mind clear of all the
crap that the day would no doubt rain down on me if I let
it.

The net result was I made more calls than anyone in my
industry and my closing ratio was the highest in the
world... four times the average. If I had let those little
things get me down and tick me off, then I wouldn't have
been able to enjoy the success I had.

Those lessons are still with me today. Why? Because each
minute of the day, I tried to remember today's empowering
quote.

When bad things happen, there is always some kind of
lesson in them.

Either you uncover the lesson or you don't. It's as
simple as that. If you don't, then you'll continue to get
P.O.'d at the most inane stuff, you'll carry on with your
little grudges, you'll fight fire with fire, and your state
of mind immediately after these mental episodes will
prevent you from performing at your best and/or holding any
peace in your mind.

Today, notice what happens around you. (It's OK to do
this tomorrow, too.)

Ask yourself if it is normal.

Don't ask if it's desirable.

Just ask if it's normal, expected, typical, predictable,
natural, common, and probable. If your answer is yes, then
it doesn't make any sense to get upset about it, does it?

It's called life.

Then... find the lesson. Learn. And move forward more
happily and better able to keep your focus and your mood
high. You just turned a "problem" into an opportunity.

Your path has just changed.

Learn a lesson from everything that happens to you and
from all that you witness, and you won't recognize yourself
or your life a year from now.

What Do You Stand For?


----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"The within is ceaselessly becoming the without. From the
state of a man's heart doth proceed the conditions of his
life; his thoughts blossom into deeds, and his deeds bear
the fruitage of character and destiny."
-James Allen (Author-"As a Man Thinketh")

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What do I want people to say about me after I'm gone --
and even while I'm still here?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I don't watch a lot of television. Watching other people
live their fake lives is a tremendous waste of a real one,
in my opinion.

I do, however, watch movies that have great lessons in
them, like 'Rocky,' 'Rudy,' and 'Mr. Holland's Opus.'
Stuff like that.

I first saw 'It's A Wonderful Life' in 1990. I cried a
lot. It was then that I knew I wanted to be like George
Bailey. I compared my life to his, and they didn't even
remotely resemble one another.

I thought: If I die right now, how many people will really
care? Have I done much for anyone beside myself?

It was then that I stepped up on the self-help books and
tapes and seminars. I tend not to do things in small ways,
so I became a sort of a fanatic. I figure that if you
really want to become more, you have to learn how.

You can't give what you don't have, after all.

This is part of the path that led me to being able to talk
to you every day.

Now, in your life, what is it that you'd like to stand
for? Books like 'As a Man Thinketh' by James Allen teach
about the power of thoughts. You see, we all are exactly
what we think. It's no accident that we end up where we
are in life.

I know, there are lots of situations like chance meetings,
freak accidents, who your parents and family are, etc. that
push us in certain directions. There's no refuting that
circumstances play a significant part in what your history
will ultimately be.

But regardless of what has happened to detour you, you
still decide where you'll go and whom you become from where
you currently are. Even if you are a world famous actor,
business or political leader, or a successful professional
in some other field (and there are many of all of those
that read this letter every week), what is it that you want
to stand for during this life?

I know a lot of people talk about actors that support this
and that thing, and it makes them "sick." But think about
it. Anyone who is absent of certain challenges (and it's
challenges that make life worth living), feels empty. So
they go looking for them. They don't want the meaning of
their lives to be just the characters they played. That's
not gratifying.

Only by helping other people and feeling a sense of
purpose will you truly be happy during your time here.

Pick up whatever books you can, watch inspiring movies,
listen to successful people.

Find some activities that make you feel alive.

If you're depressed every day, if you're filled with
anxiety and panic, if you start things and don't finish
them, then examine your thoughts. Are they all "self"
centered? If that is what you hear when you listen to that
little voice inside your head, you must set some goals. You
absolutely have to find some purpose.

And for Heaven's sake, do just one thing at a time. Don't
buy 10 books and try to read them all at once. This is not
one more thing to get panicky about. Just get "other
people" centered.

Start doing something for someone else beside yourself.

It really is that simple.

Don't look for the answer.

You're reading it now. Help someone else. Every hour.
That could mean just doing your job as well as you can this
hour. If you do, you're helping lots of people. Isn't
that right?

You're helping your customers, your employer, co-workers,
vendors, all those people's families and the service
providers who serve all of them.

You see, you can't help someone else without having a
tremendous effect on potentially thousands of others.

You can't possibly focus on being useful to the people
around you without feeling incredible joy and satisfaction
with yourself.

Is this starting to make sense yet? Good.

Think about whom you can help now. And if it's indirect,
think about all the people whose lives will be impacted if
you simply take your job a little more seriously.

I think you're about to have a few "Aha's."

Want To Be Truly Happy?



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"One of the most amazing things ever said on this earth is
Jesus' statement: "He that is greatest among you shall be
your servant." Nobody has one chance in a billion of being
thought really great after a century has passed except
those who have been the servants of all. That strange
realist from Bethlehem knew that."
-Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D.

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What can I do for someone today that will help them now?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

Yesterday, I got a real slap in the face.

The owner of an auto service business I had been going to
for many YEARS, treated me more or less like a common
criminal. I had forgotten my wallet, but I had my AMEX
card (which he doesn't accept) in my pocket.

So, instead of letting me go home to get my wallet, he
insisted that someone bring a form of payment before he
would give me the keys to my car.

He said, "So you want me to chase you around to get paid?"

He actually said that to me. For $28. He knows me. I've
been going there for years. I see him on the average of
every two months.

This is an extreme example of not being able to see the
forest for the trees.

Most of the sticky situations we all find ourselves in
don't usually SEEM clear as to what we should do. But it
probably is clear, if you are.

Look at today's quote again.

From the time we're able to do it, we like to help people.
My son, who's three, says, "Mickey help too!" After he
"helps," we thank him profusely, and even applaud.
Usually, he immediately does something else to "help" too.
We all like to be recognized and appreciated. When we're
toddlers, that's why we do it, right?

Because it makes us feel good...

When do people usually stop being so enthusiastic about
helping out and serving others? Isn't it often when they
feel it's under appreciated?

I don't know about you, but I just had a breakthrough as I
type here. Wow!

I just thought about all the times when I hid out trying
to avoid doing anything. And it occurs to me that I wasn't
going to get any kind of heartfelt thanks. Or any kind of
thanks. Just criticism if I didn't do something perfectly.

My mind also went to times when I was the critic and
wondered why I didn't get enthusiasm and eager help.

I'll bet if you sat down, got quiet and got real honest
with yourself, you would realize that one reason you often
don't perform at your best, and look to help out more often
is the lack of appreciation.

This is where the value of healthy self-esteem and
confidence comes in to play. It must take over when the
outside world isn't recognizing you for your contributions.

You must recognize you.

You must affirm your value and your ability constantly.
This is what separates the winners from the losers...

The haves and have-nots.

The happy from the desperately depressed.

If you can't do something unless you get outside
encouragement, then you're going to be sitting around a lot.

Serving others and being a "self starter" is what success
is all about. I hear, "What should I do?" every day.

First you've got to get focused on other people. Helping
others is why we were put here on earth, not to play and
entertain ourselves all day. If you don't help anyone
throughout the course of each day, you have no purpose.
You don't have to have tremendous strength and capabilities
to make yourself useful. Just the ability to care.

Even a sympathetic ear can be the biggest help sometimes.

When I train new salespeople, the first lesson is always
about getting clear on why you're calling someone. It's to
help THEM. They must love their customers so much that it
comes out in every word, every action.

That's why you were put here. Make that the focus of your
days and your hours. You'll get the appreciation you
crave, if you do.

And if you don't?

Well, that's why we include affirmations in every letter.
So YOU can give it to yourself, and so you can instruct
yourself instead of waiting for someone else to tell you
what to do!

Today's Empowering Quote

"The people who get on in this world are the people who
get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if
they can't find them, make them."
-George Bernard Shaw

Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"How good am I going to feel when I (reach some outcome)?"

----------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
----------------------------------

I just had a conversation with someone I've known my whole
life. This man lost over $150,000 in the stock market in
the last 20 months. He just kept watching it go down,
down, down. Of course, he's been listening to a small town
broker who doesn't know much.

It just breaks my heart to have watched this, because it
was so avoidable. There is so much information in the
world right at our fingertips that it's simply shocking to
me that anyone would continue to blindly trust someone
without getting more education on investing.

As people living in the 21st century, we've lost all
excuses to getting beaten like that in most areas of life.

I mean if you want to lose weight, gain weight, stop a
rotten habit, find your love, help your kids get better
grades, be a great parent, make more money, etc., etc.,
etc. the How-To is out there. But you have to find it and
then DO something.

When I had so screwed up my life that I was living in a
vehicle, no one was betting on me to make it to my next
birthday, let alone reach the top of the mountain. But it
was by using the wealth of information that's available to
us all that helped me salvage my life from certain
destruction and put me on the right path.

Now I'd been imploring and begging this guy for the last
32 months to subscribe to investment journals and
newsletters. Nope. Things were going just fine. Didn't
need it. Market is going to turn around any time. Now
he's scared to put money into anything. That's what a lack
of knowledge and fear will do to you.

It didn't take a genius to make money in the market for
quite a long time. So after being lulled to sleep by the
good times, he knows absolutely nothing more about
successful investing than he did 10 years ago.

And investing is just one of many broad areas of life
where you can easily succeed or fail based on just one more
(or one less) bit of information.

Of course you still have to act on your knowledge.
Because when it comes to the important decisions in life,
motivation and belief aren't always enough. You must know
what you're doing. There is no substitute for a good well
drawn out plan based on solid principles.

Back to investing for a moment. Why doesn't Warren
Buffett, the world's greatest investor, invest in high tech
and internet stocks? Because as a whole, they don't have a
long enough track record to have proven to be able to
perform in many different economic environments. Hey, I
worked for a large, well-funded "dot com" that doesn't
exist anymore!

The bottom line is this...

If you want to learn something, you've got to learn it
from the people who KNOW what you want to learn.

Don't cry about your relationships to people who have been
married and divorced four times. Don't ask your next-door
neighbor about their favorite stock. And don't take weight
loss advice from someone who is 50 pounds overweight.

When I wanted to build my book business, for example, I
called people from all over the country who had similar
businesses. I called my largest supplier and asked them
who their top distributors were. I then called about 20 of
them. I picked their brains about everything I could
possibly think of. This was a never-ending process for
about 15 months.

And in less than 12 months, I had built the largest
business of its kind in the world. Not because I'm so
smart... but because I found out where the knowledge was
and systematically proceeded to hunt it down.

Was it a lot of work? Whew!! But I don't regret it for a
moment. It was part of the process of developing myself
into the person I wanted to become.

It wasn't just a way to make money. The money is long
gone. But the knowledge, the self-confidence and the
incredible belief in my abilities stay with me even today.
It's part of the foundation of who I am now.

It reminds me of what a body builder I used to work out
with a number of years ago said about his methods and
dedication to working out. He was not just big... he was
perfectly proportioned as well.

He said, "I get to carry my trophy around with me forever."

Learn what you need to know to get what you want. It's
the surest, fastest way. Then go about using what you've
learned and YOU'LL get to carry YOUR trophy around with YOU
forever, too.
