“One of the greatest skills we can learn in life is how to deal effectively with disappointments, because after all, life is full of them. Learning the skill not only helps us turn things around, but it can also help us have total peace of mind (and even joy) in the meantime. As we learn … Continue reading Why Disappointment can be a Good Thing
“I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet.” ~Ancient Proverb Have you ever been around one of those people who is an eternal optimist? The kind of person who, after you have just vented to them about some rotten thing that has happened to you, comes up … Continue reading The Power of Relativity
Did you know? The part of your brain that helps you achieve your goals, ISN’T the same part of your brain that sets the goals. I explain this in more detail in this video, where I talk about the subconscious mind and how it helps you (or keeps you from!) achieving your goals. But there … Continue reading Shoes, a ring, seashells, and $5000
What would happen if you could feel grateful for EVERYTHING?
Is it even possible to feel grateful for everything? The fact is, feeling good about your problems literally activates certain laws of success for happier outcomes.
And who doesn’t want happier outcomes?
I talked about the following just two weeks ago, but this piece merits a repeat:
When you change how you feel, the nature of your surroundings begins to shift ever so slightly. People begin to respond to you differently. Someone who may not have had two words for you before may suddenly feel compelled to talk with you,… Read more
One of my readers recently wrote: “I have a question. Can you have more than one goal at one time? Or is it too overwhelming for you and your mind?” That’s a really good question. Here are my ramblings on that: You can have as many goals as you want, b…
Positive Thinking Tip: optimism will lead you to financial solutions, but be smart and live responsibly in the here and now.
Here is a question from one of my readers that I thought was worthwhile to share with you.
How do you think, especially speak, feel, and act as though you are rich, and…
A. not spend money you don’t have?
B. still give positive responses as though the money is here now to people asking you to do things you don’t have the money for???
How do you “feel” like the money is here now, when you see… Read more
Could you use some help reprogramming your mind for better health?
If you’ve been struggling, take a look. This is for No Charge.
I’m participating in a gift-giveaway event this week, and noticed that some of the other contributions look pretty cool. There are ten different gifts to choose from, but here are a few that specifically caught my eye, because they are designed to help you work WITH your mind to overcome challenges that keep you from feeling your best.
Meditation & Affirmation Kit…
Includes a meditation/affirmation audio with sophisticated brainwave entrainment technology to help your subconscious mind relax… Read more
“The solution to every problem is only an idea away.” — Portal to Genius
But what if you get the idea, and then forget what it was?
I was driving home one day and was pondering a really powerful “aha” moment. I thought, “Ooooh, I need to write that one down…” But by the time I could stop and commit the idea to paper, it was gone. It was one of those slippery fish that escaped before being speared by the pencil.
That really worried me, because every now and then I have a spark of inspiration that provides me… Read more
there is unseen help. When your goal is detailed and clear, the help stays on task with maximum efficiency.
I love the idea that there is unseen help available when you set out to accomplish a difficult goal. However, there are things you must do, or you may never see EVIDENCE of that help.
I know you’ve probably heard this before, but one of those things is writing your goal down.
I thought I already understood this. In fact, I had been teaching seminars on that very concept for a decade. But then I learned a very expensive lesson.
In … Read more
If we could conduct a scientific experiment with all the variables perfectly controlled where two people with the same upbringing, with the same experiences, with the same DNA and everything else were thrown the very same challenge…
…their circumstances and results from that point on would be different from each other – depending on the thoughts they chose in the face of that challenge.
Now, I can’t prove it. But I know it’s true. I’ve seen a very real and strong connection between the thoughts I choose and the results I get.
So knowing this, I try to choose empowering… Read more
If you’re having trouble staying out of debt, try this on for size:
Perhaps getting out of debt should not be the goal, but something you do on the WAY to a goal.
If getting out of debt is your goal, you may inadvertently condition your subconscious mind to work continually on filling the proverbial hole. When it sees that the goal is nearly accomplished, it can sometimes automatically look for more “holes” to fill. With constant thoughts about debt, and especially with the exhilaration that comes from paying it off, you can literally train it to pay off debt… Read more
Does life ever seem unfair?
Maybe you’ve dealt with more than your fair share of financial struggles. Perhaps you’ve had the feeling that your big break is just around the corner, but that corner never comes. Learn the seven laws that govern the flow of blessings you receive. The laws are like a kite string… and we are the kite. Without the string, we are tossed in the wind, and struggle to soar. But with an understanding of the laws, we can rise to remarkable heights.
As we learn the laws and live by them, we come to realize how… Read more
Interesting story to preface…
Someone emailed me the other day to tell me that she thinks I’m a lovely person and all, but that my writings have too much of a ‘religious’ tone to them. She was polite and appreciative, but clearly wishing she could learn the principles from a more secular point of view.
I can appreciate that. I respect her point of view and certainly never intend to offend anyone by focusing on how to partner with God to accomplish goals. After all, one of my foundational tenets comes from the Articles of Faith, specifically #11:

grumpy spouse? you have more influence than you know. Have faith – while respecting his or her free agency.
I’ve had this question come in time and again about how much our thoughts can influence a situation if our spouse’s thoughts do not support our own. If we shouldn’t manipulate another person’s freedom to choose, how does this all work in a marriage if both parties are not on the same page?
Some people have a gift of strong faith, and others struggle more to develop it. If you have an easier time with faith than your spouse, it may… Read more
I’ve been in front of a few audiences over my lifetime, and yes, I’ve had that gut-wrenching feeling in the pit of my stomach as I anticipated speaking in front of all those strangers – even suffering with anxiety for days (sometimes weeks) before the event.
But I don’t feel that way about speaking anymore, thank heavens.
So what changed?
Well, there is that “getting used to it” thing. Do anything often enough and the anxiety can go away, eventually. Even the most embarrassing of moments pale over time.
(Like the time I tried to be super clever in front… Read more
