Michael Vance, creative director of Disney World in Orlando was asked: “Isn’t it a shame that Walt Disney didn’t live to see this?” “He did see it,” Vance said, “and that is precisely why we are here today!” Before every great undertaking, someone has a vision.  The army commander, a strategy.  The football coach, a game plan.  The artist, a picture in the  mind’s eye. In business, too many are following schedules, attending meetings, anxiously responding to cell phones, and other urgencies.  They are dominated by routine, often trivial activities.  Something’s missing. A clear...

It is important to be a self-learner, because change in the world is accelerating. We can no longer rely on our formal education to serve us as we speed through our careers.  We cannot act as if our education is a vaccination that protects us from the toils and snares of life and career.

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...

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...

Muhammad Ali, world champion and perhaps history’s greatest boxer and...
