My mentor, when I was 25 years old, dropped a phrase on me that changed my life forever when he said; “Profits are better than wages.  Wages will make you a living, profits can make you a fortune.” You know it is a bit difficult to get rich on wages, but anybody can get rich…

Over the years I’ve been teaching children about a simple but powerful concept – the ant philosophy.  I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four- part philosophy, and here is the first part: ants never quit.  That’s a good philosophy. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them; they’ll look for another way. They’ll climb over,…

As the wheel of life continues its constant turning, all human emotions appear, disappear, and appear…

Sure, there will be times when you feel like you’re spinning your wheels, but you’ll always get out of the rut with genuine perseverance. Without it, you won’t even be able to start your engine. The opposite of perseverance is procrastination Perseverance means you never quit….

We are not born with courage, but neither are we born with fear.  Maybe some of our fears are brought on by your own experiences, by what someone has told you, by what you’ve read in the papers. Some fears are valid, like walking alone in a bad part of town at two o’clock in the morning. But once you…

One day Mr. Shoaff said, “Jim, if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well:  Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” Since that time I’ve been working on my own personal development.      And I must admit that this has been the most challenging assignment of all.

You cannot change the circumstances. But you can get stronger, wiser, better.  Life is about constant, predictable patterns of change, and the only constant factor will be our feelings and attitudes toward life.

Emotions are the most powerful forces inside us. Under the power of emotions, human beings can perform the most heroic (as well as barbaric) acts. To a great degree, civilization itself can be defined as the intelligent channeling of human emotion. Emotions are fuel and the mind is the pilot, which together propel the ship of civilized progress. Which emotions…
