  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.

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.

With the Internet, we can forge friendships around the world with people we may or may never meet in person.

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...

In America, there are no limits set on your success.  You can do anything. It doesn’t depend on chance or luck; it depends on hard work and persistence.  You can do anything by working at it.

The ability to speak effectively is important to your personal, social, and professional growth and development, and to your self-confidence. Do you feel totally at-ease speaking to a group of...
