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...

Thinking Like A Genius The natural function of the brain is to learn, to explore, and to expand its own mental powers.  We have in our head a vast, substantially-dormant super bio-computer, the human mind, given to us free at birth. The nature of genius is in all human beings; it is the nurture of that nature that is all-important; this view has been held by many of the great geniuses themselves. A study of 100 of the greatest geniuses in history proves that all our societal prejudices about genius are wrong. “Great intelligence is characterized by robust health, greater physical size, advanced...

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...

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...
