Your Magic Bank Account

Many people dream or manifest or wish to become rich with an unimaginable amount of money.  Incredibly that might be easier than it looks if you just realize your magic bank account. Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Each and every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out and spend every cent, would you not? Incredibly, each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, you are credited with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as a lost what was not used, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” It cannot be traded, or escrowed, or bartered for m…

The Strangest Secrect

Yes, yes, yes we all want to be successful and have tried multiple ways and means to get there, but in actuality, success comes from three things: a goal, a commitment to action, and service to others.  
In 1908, Napoleon Hill, (the famous motivational author whose book “Think and Grow Rich” became all-time best-seller in the field) conducted a series of interviews with 500 successful men and women and discovered and publish the formula for success. The book “Think and Grow Rich”  was the result of 25 years of study by Napoleon Hill, under the guidance of Andrew Carnegie. Later in 1956, Earl Nightingale, the Dean of Personal Development, recorded a concise version of the book “Think and Grow Rich” into a record known as “The Strangest Secret”. This record sold over million copies and continues to motivate thousands of people to move towards success.
The Strangest Secretis a ‘secret’, because there are only few who understand it and use it to become successful. And it is ‘stra…

The Cow v. Ice Cream

Ok, here it comes again.  The run up to the Presidential Elections of 2016 and now we will get bombarded with ads and promises and debates and more ads and analysis and polls, and yada, yada, yada.
Some time ago I read an article about a 3rd grade class that was being taught a civics lesson about the President and how we go about electing one. The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest of what was going on outside of their classroom. So, the teacher decided to have an election for a class president. The children would choose their nominees. Those nominees would make a campaign speech and the class would vote. To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. The class discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. There were many nominations and from those, tow students, let's call them Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot. The class had done a great job in their selections. B…
