The Seven Decisions - Number 7

A note from for Tuesday September 30 2008

Welcome to this fine Tuesday, and the last day of our Andy Andrew’s 7 Decisions extravaganza. What fun it has all been, and what a great way to wrap up September. We get to kick off the last quarter of the year on an outstanding high note.

I want to thank everyone who wrote to me over the past seven days with note recognizing the tremendous impact Andy’s messages have been having on you. You folks are certainly on an amazing track for sustained personal growth.

A very special thanks goes to Andy Andrew’s. Andy, your works continue to inspire everyone who is touched by them. Your love for your audience shines in absolutely everything you author. My life sparkles as a consequence of embracing your edicts, my soul sings with the music of their message, and I operate as better man for the lessons they impart. Thank you.

Many of you have asked where to get Andy's books and programs. You should also get on his mailing list as his newsletter is outstanding. Follow this link: Andy Andrews

Now, let’s get on to the seventh and final Decision.

Andy Andrews
7. I Will Persist Without Exception - I am a person of great faith.

Today I insert the final piece of the puzzle. I possess the greatest power ever bestowed upon mankind, the power of Choice!

Today I choose to Persist without Exception! No longer will I live in a dimension of distraction, for I know the outcome I desire. I hold fast to my dreams. I will persist without exception. I will continue despite exhaustion! I acknowledge that most people quit when exhaustion set in. I am not "most people". I am stronger than most people. Average people compare themselves with other people, that is why they are average. I compare myself to my potential. I am not average. I see exhaustion as a precursor to victory. By persisting without exception, my outcome, my success, is assured.

To achieve the results I desire, it is not necessary that I enjoy the process. It is only important that I continue the process with my eyes on the outcome. I will persist without Exception! I am a person of great faith!

God declares, 'For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'. From this day forward, I will claim a faith in the certainty of my future. Too much of my life has been spent doubting my beliefs and believing my doubts. No More! I have faith in my future. I look forward. I can only persist! For me, faith will always be a sounder guide than reason because reason can only go so far-faith has no limits! I will expect miracles in my life because faith produces them every day. I will believe in the future I do not see. That Is Faith!!

I Will Continue Despite Exhaustion!
I Focus On Results!
I Am A Person Of Great Faith!

I Will Persist Without Exception!

The Seven Decisions - Number 6

A note from for Monday September 29 2008

Bid hello to another brand spanking new week.

The Andy Andrew’s event seems to be hitting it all right on the mark. It doesn’t matter what is going on in life, Andy has an amazing way of bringing us all back to a nice centered place.

Let’s get right to it on this very sparkling Monday with Decision number 6.

Also, check out what our friends over at Daily Insight are doing to get their week up and running!

Andy Andrews
6. I Will Greet This Day With A Forgiving Spirit - I will forgive myself

The forgiveness that I hoarded has sprouted inside my heart like a crippled seed yielding bitter fruit. No more! At this moment, my life has taken on new hope and assurance. Of all the world population, I am one of the few possessors of the secret to dissipating anger and resentment. I now understand that forgiveness has value only when given away. By the simple act of granting forgiveness, I release the demons of the past about which I can do nothing, and I create in myself a new heart, a new beginning.

I will greet this day with a forgiving heart! I will forgive even those who do not ask for forgiveness. I have wasted valuable hours imagining revenge or confrontation with people who said negative or harmful things about me. I will now and forevermore silently offer my forgiveness even to those who do not see that they need it. By the act of forgiving, I am no longer consumed by unproductive thoughts. I give up my bitterness and am content in my soul and effective again with my fellow man.

Know that the person who lives a life according to the opinion of others is a slave, I am not a slave! I know the difference between right and wrong. Those who are critical of my goals and dreams simply do not understand the higher purpose to which I have been called. Therefore, their scorn does not affect my attitude or action. I forgive their lack of vision. I realize today that it is impossible to fight an enemy living in my head. By forgiving myself, I erase the doubts, fears, and frustrations that have kept my past in the present. From this day forward, my history will cease to control my destiny. I have forgiven myself. My life has just begun!

I Will Forgive Even Those Who Do Not Ask For Forgiveness!
I Will Forgive Those Who Criticize Me Unjustly!
I Will Forgive Myself!

I Will Greet This Day With A Forgiving Spirit!

The Seven Decisions - Number 5

A note from for Sunday September 28 2008

Say aloha to this very fine and engaging Sunday.

It’s been an awesome weekend for me so far. I’ve learned some new truths about living, learning, and loving. What fun awareness at this level is!

The series of The Seven Decisions is proving to be of outstanding usefulness to many if my mail is any indication. My congratulations to each of you who are embracing what Andy is imparting.

Let’s get right to number 5 in the line-up.

Andy Andrews
5. Today I Will Choose To Be Happy - I am the possessor of a grateful spirit

Happiness is a CHOICE! I know now that happiness is not an emotional phantom floating in and out of my life. Happiness is the end result of certain thoughts and activities, which bring about a chemical reaction in my body. This reaction results in a euphoria that, while elusive to some, is totally under my control.

I will greet each with laughter. Within moments of awakening, I will laugh for seven seconds. Excitement will begin to flow through my bloodstream. I feel different. I am different. I am Enthusiastic about the day! Laughter is an outward expression of enthusiasm, and I know enthusiasm is the fuel that moves the world. I have laughter in my heart.

Today, I choose to be happy. I will smile at every person I meet. My smile is my calling card and is the most potent weapon I possess. My smile is my key to my emotional make up. When I choose to smile, I become the master of my emotions. Discouragement, despair, frustration, and fear will always wither when confronted by my smile.

The power of who I am is displayed when I smile. I am the possessor of a grateful spirit! In the past, I have found discouragement in particular situations UNTIL I compared the condition of my life to others less fortunate. It is impossible for the seeds of depression to take root in a thankful heart. I am grateful for sight, sound and breathe.

If ever in my life there is a pouring out of blessings beyond that, then I will be grateful for miracle of abundance.

I will greet each day with Laughter!
I will Smile at every person I meet!
I am the possessor of a grateful spirit!

Today I Will Choose To Be Happy!

The Seven Decisions - Number 4

A note from for Saturday September 27 2008

Welcome to this fine early fall weekend.

I know, you’re not used to hearing from me on the weekend. As I mentioned in the past few days, we’re going right through the weekend presenting you with The Seven Decisions by our friend Andy Andrews.

As we go into the weekend I feel that today’s Decision (#4) is highly appropriate for your consideration. It proposes a very sincere question to us. What is it that your heart is decided on?

We’ve had quite a number of folks wanting to know where to get Andy’s materials, so click on the link below, and you’re good to go. Also make sure you sign up for Andy’s newsletter.

Follow this link and get your own copy of The Travelers Gift. I highly recommend it.

Here we go with Decision # 4

Andy Andrews
4. I Have A Decided Heart - My destiny is assured

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Knowing this to be true, I am taking my first step today. Criticism, condemnation, and complaint are creatures of the wind. They come and go on the wasted breathe of lesser beings and have no power over me. The power of control belongs to me.

Today I will exercise that power. My course has been charted. My destiny is assured. I have a decided Heart. I am passionate about my vision for the future. I will awaken every morning with an excitement about the new day and its opportunity for growth and change. I will freely give my vision for the future to others, and as they see the belief in my eyes, they will follow me. I will lay my head on my pillow at night happily exhausted, knowing that I have done everything within my power to move the mountains in my path. As I sleep, the same dream that dominates my waking hours will be with me in the dark.

Yes, I have a dream. It is a great dream, and I will never apologize for it. Neither will I ever let it go, for if I did, my life would be finished. My hopes, my passions, my vision for the future are my very existence. A person without a dream never had a dream come true. I have a decided heart. I will not wait. I am not timid. I will move now and not look back. I do not procrastinate. All my problems become smaller when I confront them. If I touch a thistle with caution, it will prick me, but if I grasp it boldly, its spines crumble into dust.

I will not wait!
I am passionate about my vision for the future!
My course has been charted!
My destiny assured!

I Have A Decided Heart!

The Seven Decisions - Number 3

A note from for Friday September 26 2008

Welcome to the end of this outstanding week.

We’ve had a ton of stuff go on this week. We got part 2 of our friend Warren’s pre-launch of his great new program, The Inspired Science of Getting Rich. Warren is certainly on a winner with this.

We’ve also been reviewing a great classic book by Raymond Holliwell called “Working With The Law”, and the folks who are working along with us have been reporting awesome personal breakthrough’s as a consequence of the study.

And, we’re back at that time of the year where we honor the great contributor, Andy Andrew’s. We’ve presented Decisions 1 and 2, and today we go with number 3. You’ll be getting them right through the weekend so make sure you check in and print them off for your wall.

Here we go with number 3, it’s one of my personal favorite’s.

Andy Andrews
3. I Am a Person of Action - I seize this moment - I choose now!!

Beginning today, I will create a new future by creating a new me. My future is immediate. When faced with the choice of doing nothing or doing something, I will always choose to act. I am a person of action. I am energetic. I move quickly.

Knowing that laziness is a sin, I will create a habit of lively behavior. Wealth and prosperity hide from the sluggard, but rich rewards come to the person who moves quickly. I inspire others with my activity. I am a Leader. Leading is doing.

My activity will create a wave of success for the people who follow. My activity will be consistent. It is True: an army of sheep led by a lion would defeat an army of lions led by a sheep. When faced with a decision, many people say they are waiting for God. But I understand, in most cases, God is waiting for me! I am not a quivering dog, indecisive and fearful.

Successful people make their decisions quickly and change their minds slowly. I am daring and courageous. Fear no longer has a place in my life. Fear has no power over me in the first place. I do not fear opinion, gossip, or idle chatter of monkeys, for all are same to me. I do not fear failure, fo r in my life, failure is a myth. Failure exists only for the person who quits.

I do not Quit!!!
I am Courageous.
I am a Leader.
I seize this moment.
I choose now.

I am a Person of Action!! I Seize This Moment!! I Choose Now!

The Seven Decisions - Number 2

A note from for Thursday September 25 2008

Welcome to this very fine early fall day.

I was on a conference call last night and was reminded that 3/4 of the year is almost past, and what happens in the next three months will be the foundation upon which 2008 will stand. In January we’ll be talking about our goals and intentions for the year, however, it will all stand on what we do between now and then. Isn’t that something to get clear on?

Now is the time to be setting in the attitudes and actions that will slingshot us towards our dreams for the New Year. The Second Decision from The Travelers Gift will undoubtedly assist in this endeavor.

Andy Andrews
2. I Will Seek Wisdom - I will be a servant to others

Knowing that wisdom waits to be gathered, I will actively search her out. I will train my eyes and ears to read and listen to books and recordings that bring about positive changes in my personal relationships and a greater understanding of my fellow man. No longer will I bombard my mind with materials that feed doubts and fears. I will seek wisdom-I will choose my friends with care.

From this moment forward, I will choose to associate with people whose lives and lifestyles I admire. If I associate with chickens, I will learn to scratch at the ground and squabble over crumbs. If I associate with Eagles, I will learn to soar to great heights. I am an Eagle-It is my destiny to Fly. I will seek wisdom-I will listen to wise men. When I counsel with just myself, I can make decisions only according to what I already know- By counseling with a wise man; I add his knowledge and experience to my own and dramatically increase my own success.

I will seek wisdom - I will be a servant to others. A wise man will cultivate a servant's spirit, for that particular attribute attracts people like no other. Often, the person who develops a servant's spirit becomes wealthy beyond measure. He who serves the most grows the fastest. I will be excited when I am available to help.

I will be a servant to others.
I will listen to the counsel of wise men.
I will choose my friends with care.
I will seek wisdom!

I Will seek Wisdom-I Will be a Servant to Others

The Seven Decisions - Number 1

A note from for Wednesday September 24 2008

Welcome to the midweek point, and it brings us to one of my very favorite events of the year.

Since reading Andy Andrew’s inspiring work “The Travelers Gift” in 2005, I have engaged each of his Seven Decisions from the book in every aspect of my life. These great lessons have served to guide me through many changes and growth in my day-to-day life experience, and to Andy I will be eternally grateful.

In honor of his work, we elected to bring to you each year those Seven Decisions so that you get to re-visit their power, or if you are a new subscriber, to embrace them for the very first time. Either way, their message holds true for everyone who considers the effect of integrating them into daily life.

The Seven Decisions will be delivered to you, one each day for the next seven days, in pdf format that has been designed to be printed off and hung proudly in your office. As you embrace their truths, you’ll find emerging within you a whole new power with which to design your days.

Here we go with the first one.

Andy Andrews
1. The Buck Stops Here - I am responsible for my past and my future

Never again will I blame my parents, my boss, or other employees for my present situation. Neither my education nor lack of one, my genetics, or the circumstantial ebb and flow of everyday life will affect my future in a negative way. If I allow myself to blame these uncontrollable forces for my lack of success, I will be forever caught in a web of the past. I will look forward. I will not let my history control my destiny. I accept responsibility for my past. I am responsible for my success. My decisions have always been governed by my thinking. Therefore, I am where I am today-mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally and financially - because of how I think. Today I will begin the process of changing where I am -by changing the way I think.

My thoughts will be constructive, never destructive. My mind will live in the solution of the future. It will not dwell in the problems of the past. I will seek the association of those who are working and striving to bring about positive changes in the world. I will never seek comfort by associating with those who have decided to be comfortable.

When faced with an opportunity to make a decision-I will make one. I understand that God did not put in me the ability to always make right decisions. He did, however, put in me the ability to make a decision and then make it right. The rise and fall of my emotional tide will not deter me from my course. When I make a decision I will stand behind it. My energy will go into making the decision. I will waste none on second thoughts. My life will not be an apology. It will be a Statement!

In the future when I am tempted to ask "Why Me" I will immediately counter with the answer, Why Not Me?

Challenges are gifts, opportunities to learn! Problems are the common threads running through the lives of great men and women. In times of adversity, I will not have a problem to deal with; I will have a choice to make. My thoughts will be clear. I will make the right choice. Adversity is preparation for Greatness! I will accept this preparation.

Why Me? Why Not Me? I will be prepared for something Great. I accept responsibility for my past. I control my thoughts. I control my emotions. I am responsible for my success.

The Buck Stops Here!

The Blueprint for Success

A note from for Monday September 22 2008

Welcome to yet another brand spanking new week with which to make magic.

I'm very excited about what we're going to be doing for the next little while.

Today we get a great start with Part 2 of our friend Warren's launch of his great new program, The Inspired Science of Getting Rich. We're coming back together this evening with a great conference call to get the whole shebang off on an inspiring note. Here's the details. Come on a little before the top of the hour and let us warmly welcome you.

Monday 22nd September 2008

7:00pm EST (6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST, 4:00pm PST)

Call into: 1-269-320-8400

Pin number: 215289#

Next, we're going to bring bringing you back our annual Andy Andrew's Seven Decisions. This has proven to be one of our most popular events, and doing it every year, we're caused to serve our subscribers in a very effective way. We'll be starting Andy's event on this coming Wednesday the 24th and it will run for seven days straight, weekend included. Each of the Seven Decisions will be in framed pdf format and ideal for printing out and getting up on your wall.

Tomorrow I'm going to send you a "Dear John" note that will certainly get your attention. You'll want to pay attention to it as soon as it arrives.

But now, let's get on with today's offering, and we go to our ever popular Philip Humbert to get the week off to an awesome start.

The Blueprint for Success
by Philip Humbert

Almost every week I get inquiries asking about the "secret" or "key" or the "solution" to success. Usually the caller has worked very hard and taken every action they can think of, but they remain frustrated with the results. They've "tried" and they've "set goals" or "read the books but nothing seems to change."

Sound familiar? We all know someone in that situation. Sometimes we know them all too personally!

I usually remind the caller of three "basics never change." The tried-and-true methods that have worked for millions of other people are not likely to change, and we can learn from that!

The first "basic" is to trust the basics! Too often we focus on living in the 21st century. We get caught up in the "rapid pace of change" and we think "everything" is new. Not so. Love, loyalty, friendship, vision, hard-work and ambition have not been re-invented, re-engineered or re-tooled for the new century. "Get rich quick" works about as well now as it did a hundred years ago! (Hint: It rarely works at all!) Success is the logical, predictable result of doing the right things, in the right way, at the right time. Remember the basics.

The second thing I tell them is the most basic truth of all: In the long-run, our success will never be bigger than we are. Small thinkers create small solutions. Big thinkers, big dreamers, big do-ers create much larger solutions, the kind we marvel at and call "outstanding!" As Jim Rohn told me almost 30 years ago, the first of the basics is to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.

Read the books. Attend the seminars. Hire a coach or work with an expert. Take notes and plan carefully. Study the methods, attitudes and tools that others have used to achieve success. As Tony Robbins says, "Success leaves clues!" Successful people love to teach others! They write books, they give lectures, they sponsor seminars. They will teach you!

If you want bigger, more impressive results, you must first become a bigger, more dynamic person.

The third thing I tell people who ask about the "secret" is the necessity for systems. A systematic (or a "scientific") approach beats random chance every time. Yes, there is the old joke that if a monkey typed long enough it would eventually write a book, but who has that much time!?

At the start of the football season we hear much about "game plans." Every team begins every game with a plan! What is your plan for the game of life?

Most people typically work on three to five goals at any given time, and each goal must have a detailed plan, and of course, the plan must be executed day by day. To build a house, you need a vision, usually a drawing of the finished home. But after the vision, you need PLANS! Blueprints are required by law because they are absolutely essential. They contain the specifics and the steps to build your dream home.

Every goal in life requires a plan or a system. I encourage my clients to plan every week on paper. Invest ten or twenty minutes to make a weekly list of projects, tasks, and prioritize them. Then, each morning before you jump into your day, make a plan for the day! Make sure "today" moves you in the direction you want to go.

This is basic. It's not new and it's not high-tech or sexy. It's basic. It's essential, and it pays rich dividends.

The Niggles

A note from for Thursday September 18 2008

Welcome to this very fine Thursday.

I’m especially excited about today’s offering as it’s the most recent from one of our very favorite contributor’s and good friend Brenda MacMillan.

Brenda is launching Full Quadrant in 2009 and the early buzz is that it’s going to have a major impact on the personal awareness marketplace. Stay tuned for updates early in the new year.

Brenda is currently preparing for a trip to Guatemala, and then she’s off to Bali for six months to complete some writing projects that are destined to turn some traditional thinking processes on their end.

When Brenda forwarded me her piece my first instinct was to sideline it as it was somewhat longer than we typically present to you. Then I read it all the way through, and it immediately became clear that you need to have it in all its unedited glory. You’ll see why.

The Niggles
by Brenda MacMillan

I saw a advertising piece by Canadian Tire that had a guy dressed in white puffy costume with “ mortgage “ written across his chest standing in between a couple and their aspirations of buying a new car ~ how astounding funny and accurate this marketing is. Every time the couple tried to go closer to the car . . . the mortgage guy would quickly stand in front of their go forward movements. The mortgage looking ever so sheepish and full of passive aggression as he peeks up at the couple out of the top of his eyes with a goofy face that says “ Hi, I’m here and really . . . don’t you love me just the same “ ? ~ It’s hilarious . . . well, it’s hilarious if you don’t have a mortgage, aren’t in debt and can freely buy a car, then and only then is it hilarious.

I suggest that there is what I prefer to call a “mind niggle” in between most people and the aspirations of greatness ~ no matter the desired objective. Here I outline & list my personal biases on this whole topic.

  • Once in adulthood we are all running our own show (life) and are fully responsible for the results obtained.
  • Ignorance is the source of most pain and there are always choices ~ that includes the choice of suffering.
  • We’re living in a time that offers fantastic materials & resources, by enumerable authors of great prominence, and a ton of new people that offer expertise for guidance.
  • I witness most people looking for answers outside of their own knowingness for relief of personal suffering.
  • Natural laws are operating all of the time. (attraction/detraction)
  • Resisting what IS offers more suffering.
  • Humour is always available.
  • Linguistics matter always. The vibration of the human voice and the human MIND is the beginning of everyone’s state of being and what is manifest in a life.

Okay . . . that said . . on to the Mind Niggles. Let’s acknowledge too that the choices being made along the way have ALL come from our collection of ideas and choices that we’ve been shown or taught by another person or situation. The lessons of abundance and/or scarcity all came from somewhere. None of us came here with the belief system downloaded into our small wriggling newly born spirit, mind body packages. . . that life was hard or easy. We don’t have body USB ports quite yet, however, we do make collections of data along the way.

I listened to a video the other day by Karen Armstrong where she stated that belief standards, in any paradigm are not the challenge we face. It is the behavioral choices we make, with the belief patterns we function with, that are the crux of the matter.

Fine ~ that makes sense. However, what if we are primarily operating on auto pilot and not aware or awake to the behavioral patterns we are in ? . . . What if the simple life conditions of any given person is of the mind that they don’t have choice in any or all situations ? (I have to take the kids to school don’t I ? ~ no you don’t; you could home school them and travel the world at the same time with the appropriate education and life style choices) ~ What if they think they want a difference in their lives and they just don’t know what to do next ? or the choices that may be available ?

Yes, we can seek guidance on choices ~ get new information. Yes, we can follow any ones guidance that is resonating with us as making sense to our life. What that other person can not do is relieve you from the present state of life conditions in which one is living. And when I say relieve, I mean fix. And when I say fix, I mean there is nothing that is broken in the first place. There is only what there is, as this life today is the culmination of all past actions and choices that have been made this far.

That’s not right, wrong, good or bad . . . it’s the residue of what has gone before. I’m not talking about whether something is working or not . . . I’m talking about the internal judgment that abounds around what is fully present right now ~ including that mind niggle.

Many before me have spoken at great length on the topic of it being necessary to embrace, acknowledge and stand empowered in the life one has right now and be an admiring witness to the bounty and beauty of it all. Easily said if abundance is what one has manifested. Not so easily said, acknowledge and embraced if a person THINKS that life is a struggle or a perceived uphill battle.

So . . . we eventually get ticked off with what is (rejecting our life and this is the big mistake) and we make a leap of faith seeking difference in a life. We’re shown and taught how to re-frame our thinking, our doing, our being, our having and holding and releasing of people, things and situations.

Yes, we’re very determined now . . . we may use affirmations (by example) like gauntlets of self empowering challenges to the universe shouting “ I live an abundant life “ ~ “money flows easily to me” . . . we shout from our toes with full emotion (with a smile too) the statement in the present tense (which we’re taught is appropriate) and with those statements of self endearment the mind niggles arrive. The self judgment, doubt, maybe some ordinary skepticism too with the mind monster niggles. The all pervasive mind chatter giant who sleeps rarely, “ Hi, I’m here and really . . . don’t you love me just the same “ ? says niggles.

The point ~ yeah, I’m finally there. I ask this of you . . . say the affirmation again and this time . . . put the word WHY in front of the statement. Yes, we say rather ~ “why do I live an abundant life “ ? ~ why does money flow easily to me “ ?

Feel the energy shift ~ can you feel it ? The mind niggles are gone. You are sitting in your own sweet juices of self examination. All of the information is now here and readily available as your own. It is you that holds the answers to the present state of affairs ~ all of it. And all of the answers are within. NOT from outside of you ~ from within ~ all of it.

There is a party & freedom here in this dear people. Yes, those that have their thinking in life as working well will truly self acknowledge and celebrate in those personal reflective moments of why indeed their life is abundant and why they truly hold the gratitude they do for all that has manifested. For most others . . . this is the cavern and great divide that must be processed & traveled before the guidance from outside of your body will have an affect. One must fully stand in the what IS, right now, in all of its goo and complexity and run the flag up the pole saying “yup, this is what I’ve built, these are the behavioral things I’ve chosen(this is what I’ve done) to get here now and I can see the wisdom/errors in how my choices have offered me THIS . . . and I’ve decided to build something different from this point forward”: One must dig deep to find the behavioral patterns of what one has been DOING to receive the results that have been received. Find and see those patterns, own them . . . yes ~ they are mine (not someone else's)

Without that stake in the ground ~ that claim on what is ~ the next step of asking for assistance (simple put) won’t work. Life will continue to be someone or some situations cause and affect . . . your power is gone given away from the beginning of the story. Know in your heart of hearts and truly in your brain . . . that nothing is broken and nothing needs to be fixed. The synchronicity of energetic patterning, natural laws and replication from one person to the next of behavioral patterns by the human is in motion. If one wishes something contrary to what most people are manifesting as a life ~ one needs to behave differently than most people. Oh-oh, the niggles might arrive at this juncture. The only thing that matters is what YOU think about your life with yourself and those that you love.

If one makes the choice . . . to truly own what is, no matter the story, no matter the picture show . . . this is the ticket to freedom. For moments when you are able to ~ just simply drop, in your mind, ideas of belief that have been around since you no longer can even remember where they came from . . . and see in your minds eye a different story if you want one. Just believe it is different if only for a moment, recognize that the behavior choices from now forward must match up with this the new thinking. If they don’t; nothing different will happen. Once this part of the work is done . . . guidance from those many choices of guidance will flow freely and easily into your sub-conscious as new conscious choices are discovered and made.

Be patient with yourself. You are not a light switch. It’s a 21 day journey of doing something repeatedly each and every day to form a new thought/behavioral pattern in the human ~ we know this much. Ask those around you to help by giving you nudges of recognition and accomplishment too. Hold your own personal celebrations in each step. Break open your heart to the knowingness that love of life and all of its gifts are yours already right now . . . even if today there is some awkwardness in how you are greeting them at the door and, more importantly ~ in your head.

Ask continually why something is working ~ be with that in your own spirit, mind body . . . build on that . . . the rest will fall away all on its own and all that is required will just show up vibrationally as natural law attests.

Improve Your Life by Raising Your Standards

A note from for Wednesday September 17 2008

Welcome to the midweek point.

Summer has been truly switched back on here in the Midwest, and we’re basking once again in some very delicious weather.

My mail yesterday clearly showed that many are grateful that we’re going to be hosting another conference call next week for our friend Warren’s continuation of his pre-launch of The Inspired Science of Getting Rich. It’s going to a very worthwhile call to attend.

I hope you had an opportunity to listen in on the recording of Monday’s call. I’ll send a note to remind you again of next week’s event.

Akso, check out what our friends over at Daily Insight are up to this week.

Now, on with today’s offering. I believe you’ll like what Dennis has to share.

Improve Your Life By Raising Your Standards
by Dennis Harting

Many people desire a change in their lives but are unsure of where to start. Quite often they take actions that have a short-term impact while dwindling in the longer term. This leaves them unsatisfied with the course that their life is taking. However, there is an easy way to instantly set your life in a different direction. It is a change that filters into every area of an individual's life.

Raising your standards will instantly change your life. Most people have a degree of unhappiness about their lives because they have settled for less than their spirit truly desires. The dreams that we carried as children of a journey filled with wonder and awe are replaced by the “realities” of life. Society teaches us to “be realistic” or “get our heads out of the clouds”. Those lifelong dreams are often abandoned in favor of an approach that will allow us to get a good job and earn a decent living.

Our careers are not the only thing that suffers. We forgo the idea of Prince Charming while marrying the frog. Behavior that was once unacceptable is now the norm. All the high goals we set for ourselves are lowered to a more “manageable” level. With each passing year, we settle for less and less in our lives. Most of the stimulating aspirations that we held are wiped out. Life becomes a drag.

Unfortunately, our behavior follows the same course. Characteristics that were once completely foreign to us are a regular part of our day. We put activities off while succumbing to procrastination. Laziness takes a larger role in our lives affecting our physical as well as mental health. Minor habits such as tardiness grow to an uncontrollable level.

Deciding that you are no longer accepting of what is transpiring in your life is the first step in reversing this process. By taking a look at each area of unhappiness, one can immediately raise the level of behavior. This enables you to alter your actions to newer standards. It is a sharp contrast to what we were doing in the past. For years, we have been matching our standards to our actions. The worse the behavior was, the lower the standards became.

The key to making this effective is to realize that it is an internal job. Raising the standards for yourself at first is the easiest way to instigate change. After a time, it can be applied to others. We need to draw those “lines in the sand” especially if we are the type of person who allows others to walk all over us. Often our standards are tied to our self esteem. Because we tend to have a low value of ourselves, we fail to stand up for what we believe acceptable. Over the years, this process continues until we get to the point where we cannot take anymore.

You are in a wonderful place if you are presently dissatisfied. People typically will not do anything to change until they had enough pain. The fact that you want more than you are getting at this moment is an indicator that you are gaining the willingness to do something about it. By raising your standards, you are laying a path for upward advancement.

The more that you expect out of yourself and others, the more you will receive. Our successes are in direct correlation to the level that we seek to attain. The higher we aim in life, the higher that we get. When athletic teams strive to win the championship, they often make the playoffs, However, the teams that strive for a winning season typically finish at the bottom of the pack. In raising your standards, you are transformed into a new person. Your mindset immediately focuses on the new standard. Inevitably, the actions taken will follow where you are focused. This will result in a dramatic change of in your life.

Recovering From A Mess Up!

A note from for Tuesday September 16 2008

Welcome to this fine Tuesday.

Well, I really booboo’d again yesterday.

I was so very enthused about our friend Warren’s launch of The Inspired Science of Getting Rich I messed up big time with the call in number. Some of you got the right one, but I do believe that most didn’t if my e-mail was any indication. Right at call time my e-mail inbox was lighting up with folks bringing to my attention that the number wasn’t working.

However, we have a really neat way of turning a sow’s ear into a very fine silk purse. We were forward thinking enough to record the call.

And, and this is a very big “and”, Warren realized during the call (as this was a trial launch) that there was no way he’d get all the material covered in one call. And this is where the bonus lies for you. Read on!

To compensate for my error in giving you the wrong dial in information, I’m attaching the link for the recording of our conference call, and extending an invitation to come together again next Monday for part two of the launch of The Inspired Science of Getting Rich. And yet another bonus, Warren is preparing an outstanding offer to everyone who is on the call. Now that’s how silk purses are created.

In lieu of today’s reader, you can enjoy me talking more about Raymond Holliwell’s great book “Working With The Law”, and you’ll get to hear Warren begin his presentation about The Inspired Science of Getting Rich. It’s all grand stuff!

Here’s the links for your convenience:

The Three Skills of “Ordinary” Genius

A note from for Monday September 15 2008

Welcome to yet another outstanding late summer week.

I’m very excited today as we get to have a sneak peak at our friend Warren Wojnowski’s new program The Inspired Science of Getting Rich.

The event is going to take place by conference call this evening and you should be there. Here’s the details.

Tonight Monday 15th September 2008
7:00pm EST (6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST, 4:00pm PST)
Call into: 1-269-615-6500
Pin number: 215289#

Come and have some fun. You’ll be glad you did.

Now, on with today’s offering. As is becoming regular, our friend Philip sets us out on this week with a perspective that is highly worthy of time.

Don't forget to check out how our friend's over at Daily Insight are starting out their week

The Three Skills of “Ordinary” Genius
by Philip Humbert

A couple of weeks ago I wrote that "it's the little things" that make all the difference. Many people wrote to say how helpful that was and asked me to write more about it. I'm convinced that a great life is rarely built on a brilliant flash of inspiration or one profound insight. More often great lives are built by ordinary people, doing ordinary things, extraordinarily well.

Do you remember the old cliché that even the rich and famous "put their pants on one leg at a time?" I've always loved that insight. It gives me a sense of power and freedom and boosts my self-esteem. It gives me a chance to be "just like" my heroes.

This week I read Stephen Ambrose' biography of President Eisenhower. Obviously, "Ike," was one of the great heroes of World War II and arguably one of our better presidents. But he wasn't "brilliant" in terms of IQ. He was in the middle of his class ("average") at West Point, and no one saw him as a unique talent. Ambrose makes the comment that if one fortuitous promotion that sent him to work in Washington had gone differently, "the world would never have heard of Col. Eisenhower." How true! And, in a wonderful way, how inspiring!

Eisenhower did have three great gifts, but they were "ordinary" gifts that you and I can learn and apply in our lives.

First, he worked very, very hard. He was up early, stayed late, immersed himself in each task until it was done right and on time. His "genius" was the "ordinary genius" of dedication, duty and discipline. I may not be able to copy that exactly, but I can certainly learn from it. I can do my best and appreciate the results of "out working the competition."

The second of Eisenhower's great skills was his ability to focus on things that mattered! Many of us work hard. In fact, I often argue that many of us work too hard because our time, our energy and our focus is on things that don't really matter. We "sweat the small stuff." Ike never did that. Even his critics acknowledged his gift for calmly assessing a situation and spotting the "leverage point" that would make all the difference.

Here's an example. For six months before D-Day, June 6th 1944, he made a point to meet with his chief meteorologist every single day. He knew that guns and ships and strategy were all important, but ultimately the invasion would depend on the weather and he wanted to assess the skills of his chief forecaster. In the end, on a stormy night with rain pelting against the windows, he made the decision to "go" because he trusted his weatherman. He knew he would get a 6-hour window of clearing weather and that was all he needed. The course of the war changed over-night because Ike focused on the weather and knew his meteorologists could be trusted.

Finally, Eisenhower insisted on choosing the right people and relying on them. He frequently refused to work with people if they were unreliable or ineffective. He wanted the best people around him. Notably, after giving the order to "go" on June 5th, Ike went to bed. There was literally nothing more for him to do! All the orders, all the staff work, all the plans were in capable hands and his work (for the moment) was done. He didn't try to do it all himself. He chose good people, delegated responsibility and trusted that the right things would be done, in the right way, at the right time.

For me, there is great hope in this! Eisenhower wasn't some unique genius beyond my ability to comprehend. To the contrary, much of his achievement came from knowing three basic skills that I (or anyone) can learn. He worked hard. He could identify the key leverage points. He chose to work and associate with the best people he could find, and he trusted them. I can do this, and so can you.

Profound Personal Integrity

A note from for Thursday September 11 2008

Welcome to Thursday.

As we start the process of wrapping up the week I want to acknowledge all of our great contributors and writers. Without the dedication of these outstanding folks it would be next to impossible to bring you the relevant “readers” we do.

The Wealthy Attitude Daily Reader is now enjoyed by folks on every continent and I’m excited to tell you that it’s going to become even better in the very near future.

To start that process off I’m personally inviting you to join us on Monday September 10th at 7:00pm EST (6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST, 4:00pm PST) on a very special call as one of our good friends and contributors launches an amazing product that will certainly serve you in your own growth.

Our friend Warren Wojnowski has developed a terrific program called The Inspired Science of Getting Rich. Warren has kindly offered us a very advanced opportunity to let you know about this new release. This special launch will be a part of our regular Road to Riches Group conference call so there will be some other fun information on the call that you’ll want to hear.

I’ll let you know more about what to expect over the weekend coming up, but get the time into your day-timer right now as spaces on the call will be limited. Here’s the details:

Monday 10th September 2008

7:00pm EST (6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST, 4:00pm PST)

Call into: 1-269-615-6500

Pin number: 215289#

We also have a special gift for everyone who attends the call. You’ll love it.

Now, on with today’s offering. I got this from our friend Thea Westra in Australia and although it’s been around for a very long time, it is as relevant today as when it was penned.

Profound Personal Integrity

“This document comes from the curriculum of the Maliwada Human Development Training School in Maliwada, India, which is a former program of ICA International They are not certain of the year, so there are no further details that they could provide for a citation.”

Above quoted from an email dated 13 Feb. 2008 sent to me by the Director of Development and Communications at The Institute of Cultural Affairs International (ICA) in Quebec, Canada. Give a gift that gives again at Working Gifts

We are going to visit the arena of Profound Humanness called “Integrity”. Sometimes “integrity” is reduced to mean a kind of moral uprightness and steadfastness, in the sense of saying, “He has too much integrity to ever take a bribe.”

But profound integrity goes far beyond this. Sometimes, in order to distinguish it from more limited popular usage, it is called “secondary integrity”. This is the integrity which is not constrained by limited moralities, however well-intentioned. The integrity that is profound living is the singularity of thrust of a life committed and ordering every dimension of the self towards that commitment. Thus the self is in fact shaped by the self, and focused towards that commitment. You can say that an audacious creation of the self takes place in integrity, without which you are simply the creation of the various forces impacting you in your society.

Thus the basis of integrity is a destinal resolve - a resolve that chooses and sets your destiny and out of which your whole life is ordered. The object of that resolve is the ultimate decision of each person, and each person makes that choice, consciously or unconsciously. To do so with awareness is the height of man’s responsibility. It is incarnate freedom. It is what real freedom looks like. When man has thus exercised his freedom he realizes that to be true to himself ever thereafter he has a unique position to look at the values of his society. He is no longer bound by the opinions and codes of his fellow-man, but reevaluates then on the basis of their impact on his destinal resolve.

Thus the man of integrity is continuously engaged in a societal transvaluation, a moving across the values of society and reinterpreting them in line with his life’s thrust. It does not give him the liberty of ignoring his society, but his obligation transcends the conformity of living within the codes and mores of his society. Thus the man of profound integrity always seems to not quite fit with his fellow-men, but his actions always are appropriate for him, even to those who oppose him.

No matter how odd the man of profound integrity appears to his neighbors, he experiences himself as securely anchored. While he is very clear that this world is not his home, nevertheless he experiences himself as having found his native vale. He experiences an eternal at-one-ness, not so much with the currents and waves of activity around him, but with the deeper trends of history itself. Amid the flux of wavering to and fro that is so evident in others, he experiences an inexplicable rootedness, as though he has sunk a taproot deep into the foundations of the earth itself.

Though he experiences his life as a long journey, even an endless journey, towards the object of his resolve, yet he never senses himself as a stranger on the journey It’s as if he’d been there before. Original integrity is experienced primarily by this sense of at-one-ness.

Kierkegaard once wrote a book about this kind of integrity that he titled, “Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing”. An ancient philosopher focused his wisdom around this integrity with the advice, “Know yourself, and to your own self, be true.”
