The Wrong Book

The Wrong Book At The Wrong Time Won't Take You Here

The Wrong Book At The Wrong Time Won’t Take You Here

I love to read, so I’m always reading something. These days, I read multiple books at once, which wasn’t always the case. I used to struggle to read anything and so I didn’t. Then I got the message that for my life to change, I would have to read the kind of books that would help me change myself for the better. At that point, I would have bungee jumped, of which I’m extremely scared to do, off a cliff to improve my life. I was looking for something that would put my life on the right track, and found it to be reading. That was 23 years ago.

Yesterday, I picked up what I consider to have been the [click to continue…]

Making a lot of Money

Making a Lot of Money Has a Lot of Lessons Behind It

Making a Lot of Money Has a Lot of Lessons Behind It

I used to concern myself with making a lot of money and doing it quickly. Now I concern myself with enjoying the journey, and that’s really not a concern at all, but instead more of a philosophy. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that some things take time, and I mean a lot of time. But the reality is that the concept of “time,” whether it be long or short is “relative.” In other words, wealth building and financial success like anything, has to be compared to something else in order to determine whether the duration of achieving it is truly long or short.

Take for example, Napoleon Hill studied smart minds of his time for 20 years before he penned his famous book “Think and Grow Rich.” Now some might feel that’s a long time and I say okay, so what if he had done it in five years? I guess we might say that the book was written in a very short amount of time, at least in comparison to the real amount of time it took for him to complete it.

But let’s make this a little more personal. What if it took you five years to accomplish a significant goal in your life? Would it be worth it? I’d say yes. In fact, I’ve accepted that if it took every day of my life to obtain a wonderful goal, whether it be making a lot of money or not, again keeping in mind the concept of relative, I’d gladly do it. Achieving a goal isn’t what is most significant; achieving a goal is a result of what you do, but what you do or the journey, is what is important and brings you happiness. So, if it took a lifetime, it would still be SUPER. And so far I’m right on track!

If we shift the discussion a little, we can focus on the fact that “Making a lot of Money” isn’t really a goal anyway, nor does it have much meaning, when used as a goal. Why? Because there are two elements in a goal. First, there must be a specific measurable objective. Secondly, a goal has a timeline specified to acquiring it even though we don’t really know what that might be, we set it with the expectation of achieving it in that time period. If the goal is missed, then we reset the completion date as long as the goal is something we are still passionate about. But “Making a lot of Money” does sound good :^)

Now that I’ve released myself from the need to make a lot of money in short order, I can begin to focus on what’s really important and that’s helping and serving others. Once we do that “we will meet with success unexpected in common hours,” as Henry David Thoreau said. That’s all we have to know and believe in, serving others. When we do, the world becomes our oyster.

Until next time,

Kevin

Giving is Truly Receiving

When You Give, You Receive

When You Give, You Receive

When I think about how giving is truly receiving, a few concepts come to mind. The first is the idea I’ve had for a very long time that takes the posture of if you give, you will receive. That idea can be taken even further by considering that if you give, you will receive 10 times more than what you gave, but usually from some other source than that of which you gave to. Now, is this philosophy great or what? Yes it is!

The concept discussed above can be related to the second more recently discovered philosophy pertaining to how we feel about giving or when we give. That seems to be one of the biggest reasons people give, which is to experience the feeling you get when you give to others. Perhaps some people feel even better, when they give to those who are less fortunate than themselves. But I never thought about the importance and driving force that [click to continue…]

Can I Benefit From Self Help or Self Improvement?

Can I Benefit From Self Help or Self Improvement?

I’ve got plans based on the learning and growth I’ve acquired

“Can I benefit from Self Help or Self Improvement?” This is a question everyone should be asking themselves, because the answer to this question is very alarming. Now let’s serious think about the answer to this question, but before we do let’s consider the following question first. “What do I absolutely have to have in order to live a desired life?” Everyone may not consider Self help techniques to be “necessary” or “required” to live a desired life that is full of happiness, love, joy ,and fulfillment, although it could be debated. Another viewpoint is you can achieve everything you desire even if you never engage in any self improvement activities. Right?

Wrong, well maybe. Here’s why. You’re certainly not going to live a desired life if you don’t work daily to improve yourself. First, if we create a list of things we must have, we end up with [click to continue…]

I can do it and I know I can!

I can do it and I know I can

I can do it and I know I can” should be your motto

The saying, “I can do it and I know I can” is one that was told to me by my mentor Vic Johnson. Now, I’m not sure it was coined by him, but he used it to obtain an incredible amount of success that he’s attained. I’m writing about it today to help inspire you to become all that you can be.

You see, success isn’t easy. In most cases, it takes years to reach it. Yet, the years continue to go by, don’t they? So why shouldn’t you be successful and why not now? Why not [click to continue…]

Finding Harmony

Harmony Can Be Found In Many Ways And At Many Places

Harmony Can Be Found In Many Ways And At Many Places

I felt really stressed and needing a break to put me into a much better frame of mind. I’m sure everyone’s felt like that, at one time or another. So, I decided to put on a subliminal recording called, “Finding Harmony.” Sounded just like the thing I needed. Right?

Then, I got a message that something fairly bad had happened and needed immediate attention. I couldn’t delay responding to the situation. So, I [click to continue…]

Questions Can Change Your Life For The Better

Questions Can Change Your Life For The Better

I regularly attend a Mastermind group meeting of which there is time devoted to three activities. First, each member explains their victories that have experienced over the previous week. Secondly there is a training session for us to learn and grow intellectually. Lastly, we are given an opportunity to ask any question we may have related to the training, where we may need help, or are hung up in achieving our goals and so on.

I was prepared to share my weekly victory, and the Mastermind leader presents the training material portion of the meeting, however I had no [click to continue…]

Share Your Message, Share Your Gifts

Share Your Message, Share Your Gifts

When I was young, I used to ask myself why I was here on this planet, essentially what is my message or what am I here to accomplish? Truth be known I wasn’t asking myself that question in quite that way, but now I know that this was the intention.

Back then I was young, maybe 12 to 14 years old and I was struggling, mostly with myself. I had no concept of self-improvement back then and only wished I had, looking back on it now. Even so, I have no [click to continue…]

A Fine Read

In anticipation and preparation of my upcoming book entitled Interrogating Millionaires, I’ve been taking courses and learning how to write better and market my book. One of the great courses I’ve been learning from pointed me to a book that was said to help writers, I suspect it said new writers like myself. So I decided to read it.

You Will Be Missed Robin Williams

I don’t normally write about the passing of a popular figure, but it’s rare that we have the likes of a person as wonderful as Robin Williams among us. I couldn’t let his passing be silenced in my blog, Belief Equals Possibility. Robin had a huge impact on me throughout his entire career. I was always interested in what he was creating.
