Be Happy; Be A Forgiver Are you easily offended?  Many people are, and it makes them miserable.  It doesn’t have to be that way.  You can control your thoughts.  It isn’t easy, but it can be done.  I write about that in my book, Thought: An Awesome Creative Force. I encountered two unhappy people today while I was trying to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in a local restaurant.  They both dumped on me.  That’s what unhappy people do; they spread their misery.  “Misery loves company.”  You’ve heard the saying. One person was on the telephone a couple of tables over, giving someone on...

One Small Act Defeated Discouragement

One Small Act Defeated Discouragement I was a 20-year-old college student 200 miles from home selling Bibles door-to-door in rural Indiana. Lonely, homesick and missing my girlfriend, I wasn’t doing too well selling Bibles.  And I wasn’t making any money. Reluctantly, I was knocking on doors, but my heart really wasn’t in it.  I was discouraged. I stopped at a pretty little clapboard house with a neat white picket fence in front.  After letting myself through the gate, I timidly knocked on the door. The biggest, hairiest man I ever saw jerked open the door.  He was wearing a greasy undershirt and...

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...

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...

Thought and Circumstances

»Posted by on Nov 21, 2012 in Bible, Book Review, Books, Personal Development, Success, Wealth | Comments Off on Thought and Circumstances

A person who is eager to improve his circumstances, but refuses to improve himself, is bound by his current circumstances. Even if his sole objective is to achieve wealth, he must be prepared to make great sacrifices before he can accomplish his objective. The same is true for a person wishing to achieve a strong, balanced, and poised life. If a person is constantly fighting against his circumstances, it means that he is revolting against the effect on the outside, but is nourishing and preserving contrary thoughts in his mind and heart. A person is literally what he thinks, and his character and...
