  I grew up in the 1950’s, in the “Happy Days.”  Contrary to common thinking among Gen Xers and Millennials, we knew some pretty cool stuff. In the 50’s we weren’t ashamed to watch TV with our parents or our kids.  Telephones were attached to wires, and we actually talked on them.  Gen Xers and Millennials  own cell phones, but they mostly text, even in the same room with the person they’re texting. We listened to music on transistor radios and funny-looking, box-like devices called record players and stereos.  Music was recorded on 78s, 45s, and LPs; Gen Xers and Millennials have...

Knowledge is power, and knowledge is available to everyone.  If you remain ignorant, you can’t blame anyone but yourself.  How far you climb on the pyramid of achievement is determined to a large extent by your knowledge. Teach your youngsters and impress upon them the importance of knowing their language. You can’t know everything, so where do you start?  Scientific and educational studies show a clear correlation between language skills and achievement of every kind. You may live in the finest home in the most affluent neighborhood, drive the most expensive car, and dress in designer clothes, but...

The World’s Best How-to Book | Life is not a dress rehearsal.  We’re on stage for our first and final performance, and we don’t get any do-overs.  We need a how-to book, and  I have good news.  There is a proven how-to book; its advice has never failed for thousands of years. The book is the best-selling book of all time and tops the bestseller list year after year.  The problem is very few people read it, and even fewer people heed its messages about how to live every day.  That’s a shame, because it provides advice that could be helpful to you this very day and every day for rest of...

Forgiveness: The Divine Gift

With the Internet, we can forge friendships around the world with people we may or may never meet in person. Not long ago I lost a friend I never met–Ken Rhodes.  He was a friend to many online, and he is missed. Hearing of his death was a shock to me.  His death reminded me of what a kind, generous, and courageous man he was.  He had a chance to prove it to me just before he died, and he did. Ken wrote a comment to one of my posts that hurt my feelings and to which I took offense.  If that same remark had been made by someone I did not know, I would have ignored it, but since I knew Ken, I wrote...

Thought: An Awesome Creative Force

My newest book, Thought: An Awesome Creative Force, is available at bookstores, Amazon, and right here.  Here is the “Introduction.” If there is a universal problem with people in the 21st century, it’s that they simply don’t think.  I should qualify that by saying, they don’t think the right way.  They don’t think of the consequences of their thoughts, of their words, of their actions.  They don’t understand the awesome creative power of their thoughts. All creatures are supplied at birth with everything they need for survival and for success.  All creatures except man are...
