My Holiday Message!

A note from for Wednesday December 16, 2009

Hello there dear friends , and welcome to this midweek point, and our final note for 2009.

What a year this has been. It has been filled with lessons and awareness's that I could not have imagined as we burst onto the year just a short twelve months ago. We uprooted and moved to the magnificent Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, and I duly confess, it was a true blessing. This place is surely a touch of paradise.

In contemplating my holiday message, I am caused to reflect on our friend, and recently passed, Jim Rohn. Like me, Jim was a believer in 100% responsibility for the entire life experience. No exceptions. Jim was also a huge believer in having a magnificent library, and he would appreciate what I'm going to share with you when I exclaim...

Read All The Books.

All of the books that we will ever need to make us as rich, as healthy, as happy, as powerful, as sophisticated and as successful as we want to be, have already been written.

People from all walks of life, people with some of the most incredible life experiences, people that have gone from pennies to fortune and from failure to success have taken the time to write down their experiences so that we might share in their wealth of knowledge. They have offered their wisdom and experience so that we can be inspired by it and instructed by it, and so that we can amend our philosophy by it. Their contributions enable us to reset our sail based upon their experiences. They have handed us the gift of their insights so that we can change our plans, if need be, in order to avoid their errors. We can rearrange our lives based on their wise advice. All of the insights that we might ever need have already been captured by others in books.
The important question is this: In 2010, with this treasure of information that could change our lives, our fortunes, our relationships, our health, and our careers for the better, how many books will you commit to reading?

Why do we neglect to read the books that can change our lives? Why do we complain but remain the same? Why do so many of us curse the effect but nourish the cause? How do we explain the fact that only three percent of our entire national population possess a library card--a card that would give us access to all of the answers to success and happiness we could ever want? Those who wish for the better life cannot permit themselves to miss the books that could have a major impact on how their lives turn out. The book they miss will not help! And the issue is not that books are too expensive! If a person concludes that the price of buying the book is too great, wait until he must pay the price for not buying it. Wait until he receives the bill for continued and prolonged ignorance.

There is very little difference between someone who cannot read and someone who will not read. The result of either is ignorance. Those who are serious seekers of personal development must remove the self-imposed limitations they have placed on their reading skills and their reading habits. There is a multitude of classes being taught on how to be a good reader and there are thousands of book on the shelves of the public libraries just waiting to be read. Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary. We must not permit anything to stand between us and the book that could change our lives.

A little reading each day dear friends will result in a wealth of valuable information in a very short period of time. But if we fail to set aside the time, if we fail to pick up the book, if we fail to exercise the discipline, then ignorance will quickly move in to fill the void.

Those who seek a better life must first become a better person. They must continually seek after self-mastery for the purpose of developing a balanced philosophy of life, and then live in accordance with the dictates of that philosophy. The habit of reading is a major stepping stone in the development of a sound philosophical foundation. And in my opinion it is one of the fundamentals required for the attainment of success and happiness. (exerted)

My dear friends, it is my utmost desire that your holiday season is rich with the many blessings that you deserve, and that 2010 brings to you all of your dreams and intentions. I am richer for your presence in my life.

I'll be back with you on the 4th of January for what is going to be an amazing year.

Take care,
