Napoleon Hill’s Law Of Success: Part I

Napoleon Hill’s Law Of Success: Part I

As anyone committed to self-development has certainly done, I’ve spent some time studying the teachings of Napoleon Hill and would like to share with you a summary of the main principles highlighted in his landmark work, Law of Success, first published in 1928. Most of you know who Napoleon Hill is. But for the benefit of those who don’t, Mr. Hill is quite arguably the author of the world’s first practical philosophy of human achievement. Commissioned back in 1908 by…

Giving and Receiving – Is One Really Better?

Giving and Receiving – Is One Really Better?

Giving? Receiving? We’ve all heard the saying “It’s better to give than receive”. It’s actually more than an old wives’ tale, it is a directive from Jesus Christ recounted in Acts 20:35 by His disciple Luke- In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ There are several reasons to support the benefits of…

What Are We Waiting For?

What Are We Waiting For?

Have you noticed how easy it seems to be to manifest a parking spot or a penny on the sidewalk, but a bit more challenging to manifest the house, love, or life of your dreams? Yes, you’ve asked the Universe for abundance, but you were expecting more than just pennies from heaven! Sometimes it seems like we spend so much time waiting for the things that we really want in life to manifest. The irony is when you say, ‘I…

Affirmations – More Than Wishing Upon A Star

Affirmations – More Than Wishing Upon A Star

Want To Manifest Your Ideal Reality? Expect What You Want!

Want To Manifest Your Ideal Reality? Expect What You Want!

One of the most important steps in consciously using the Law of Attraction is learning to change –no manage – our expectations.  Why?  Because the Universe delivers exactly what we expect to see. The power of expectation is more than simple optimism, hope or wishing things will work out the way that you want; it is the confidence, assuredness, and belief that they will! Our expectations are formed on the foundations of our existing beliefs. If we believe ourselves to…

The Timeless Wisdom Of The Law Of Attraction

The Timeless Wisdom Of The Law Of Attraction

Buddha said “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” Job 3: 25 NIV of the Bible’s Old Testament, declares “What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.” It seems that both Buddha and Job understood the eternal workings of the Law Of Attraction. However, unlike the enlightened Buddha, Job – like the majority of people today – suffered the dire consequences of not using this law to his advantage!…

This is a question with many answers. Your physical body, broken down to its chemical elements – oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and the like –  is worth about $1USD according to an article at thoughtco.com.  The article goes on to say that if you include your skin, the value of your body jumps to $5 – about the price of a fast food value meal. On the other hand, if you sold your body piece by piece – bone marrow, kidneys,…

The Law of Attraction is the belief that your thoughts create your reality.  As it is a universal law, it is working all the time whether you are conscious of it or not.  According to the Law of Attraction, we are in our current life’s circumstance because of the thoughts we’ve had, and consequently, we can determine our future situations with the thoughts that we begin to have now.

Your Words Shape Your World

Your Words Shape Your World

The Power of the Spoken Word was written by Florence Scovel Shinn many years ago. In the book, Ms. Shinn explains how your words create your world, claiming that “Affirmations Work.” She claimed that those who didn’t know the power of their words were living behind the times.  She wrote this book in the 1950s and, just like Think and Grow Rich (written in the 1930s) and Self-Help (written in the 1850s), its message still resonates today. Let’s imagine a…

As I’ve begun to dig deeper into The Law of Attraction and all that it entails, I’ve found that there are some aspects that I thrive at and others that I struggle with.  Similar to a geometry student who excels in segment bisectors but can’t quite grasp general convexity or a novice botanist who revels in plant anatomy but shirks away from plant genetics, I’ve found that I am good with affirmations and visualizing but am woefully impatient and thus…

What’s _REALLY_ Holding You Back?

We came into the world as a blank slate.  We had no fears and knew no limits. As we grew and developed, we acclimated to our surroundings by adopting and internalizing the norms and beliefs of our environment. Some of these beliefs were good (My life is an incredible gift) and some were not so good (The world is a dangerous place).  Some were downright destructive (I’m not good enough). By definition, a belief is an acceptance that a statement…
