Right answers

Nobody goes around saying they are wrong.  They are right.  If they thought they weren't right, they'd change their minds until they know they are right. Right answers may change. Today it's right, but tomorrow it's wrong based on new information or circumstances. What's right for me is not for…


Positive Thinking Part 2

Positive thinking won't allow you to do anything, but it will allow you to do everything better than negative thinking will. What is your default way of thinking - especially about challenges?


Think positively

"It's not going to happen. They are all booked up.  We'll never get this" she said, obviously disappointed and worried. He smiled and looked at her.  "Everything will work out.  I know it." The next day, the phone rang.  It was good news...    


You doubted it would work out – and…

...it didn't. Did you cause it so you'd be right? Did you not do all you could to make the good happen because you doubted it would happen? By doubting, or failing to believe in your own success, we prevent it from happening. From the inner - the outer.  


Here's a way to reduce CO2 I am sure of!

Yesterday I referred to two YouTube videos to show that experts who inform masses can be wrong, and I used examples referring to reducing CO2.  (My post was not about solar energy or electric vehicles, but just used two experts who did TED talks to show that experts contradict each…


How we can all be so wrong.

Today, I want to talk about how a false narrative and beliefs get implanted in the public's mind; how the madness of crowds comes to be. On YouTube, I watched a video of a guy who spent his life championing environmental causes in California.  He fought for solar power and…


Would you rather have fairness or equality?

Inequality is not the same as unfairness. Some people think that fairness means equality - everybody receives the same.  Others think it means proportionality - everybody receives in proportion to their contributions. People prefer fair inequality over unfair equality. How about you?


The wellspring inside you

Most people are in search of things, riches, to get ahead, riches out in the world - while ignoring the riches in their own minds and what it can bring. Ironically, by understanding, tapping into and developing your inherent talents, you can find many of the things you seek outwardly.…


Desire

Desire is the power behind action. What we desire most is what we will think and focus on. Whatever we fix our minds on, that is what we attract. What do you desire?


A New Year

A New Year is a time to reflect on your life and how things are going and make some high-level decisions about what kind of person you want to be and what kind of life you want to lead.  Then you can make plans for what you are going to…


Get Enough Sleep

Would you rather wake up early and get to work sleep-deprived and tough it out for 11 hours, OR get more sleep and work 9 hours?  Which do you think would be more productive and have you producing better results? When you don't get enough sleep you lose patience, compassion,…


Imagination Beats Reality

There's no bogeyman.  But if you think there is, you will behave that way. A mission is labeled very difficult by most, but you believe you can do and love the challenge - and you prevail. You think today will be hard.  It is. You think today is a great…


Everybody is focused – but on what?

A big part of being successful is being focused.  "But I'm not very focused," you say? Most everybody, whether they are doing well or not, is focused on something. A guy may not doing well in some areas, but he's really great at playing video games - because he focuses…


What you want more than the truth

We would rather be right than be corrected with the truth. Whatever we learn first and accept as the truth, we will defend in the face of any other idea. Beliefs about ourselves, how the world is, what is possible for us, how other people are...all of it. Funny, huh?…


We are all essential workers

To make a country/world of XXXX millions of people work and have all enjoy a high standard of living, we all need to row the boat. As we have seen with supply chain problems, and even getting a table at a restaurant or getting our car washed, we need all…


What you do = what you get

There is an undeniable connection between what you do and what you get. Actions determine outcomes.   Outcomes inform actions.  (If I want X, I have to do Y). Do you know clearly what you want? What do you have to do to get what you want?  


If it feels a little scary…

Being purposeful means doing things that do not feel natural. If you are to break new ground in your life, then you have to do things that don't feel exactly comfortable, because you have not done them before.
