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. This business…

Pity the man who has a favourite restaurant, but not a favourite author. He’s picked out a favourite place to feed his body, but he doesn’t have a favourite place to feed his mind! Why would this be?

Three key words to remember:  weigh, count and measure. Now why weigh, count and measure? To see what your results are from your activity, your attitude and your philosophy. If you find that the results are not to your liking there are only three places to look.  Your philosophy needs to be fine-tuned; your attitude needs to be strengthened or…

Life is about constant, predictable patterns of change.  For the six thousand years of recorded history, as humans have entered this world, received parental instruction, classroom instruction, and gathered the experience of life; many have set for themselves ambitious goals, and dreamed lofty dreams.
