Mental & Emotional Vitamins & Minerals

“The First Wealth Is Health”*

Science has proven that there’s a mind body connection that deeply affects your physical health. “As you think, so you become” is not just a great Bruce Lee quote, it’s also a truism that affects every area of your life including your health.

I’ve almost always exercised regularly, and I used to lift weights a lot. I also studied nutrition, and when you have a lot of muscle mass, you need extra nutrients that you don’t always get by eating. So, I took vitamin and mineral supplements daily.

Because of the mind body connection, it’s just as important to take a daily dose of mental & emotional vitamins & minerals.

“He Who Has Health Has Hope; And He Who Has Hope, Has Everything”*

Quantum physics proves that thoughts emit energy in vibrational waves that magnetize whatever you dwell upon towards you. Feelings also send out powerful electromagnetic vibes into the quantum field.

By re-training your mind to entertain mostly good thoughts, you’ll subsequently feel mostly positive emotions. Therefore, you’ll attract good things.

Like everything else, it takes 21 days to make it a habit. You can consciously develop the art of shaking off negative thoughts, by choosing to entertain positive ones instead.

After interviewing and analyzing over 500 incredibly wealthy and successful people, Napoleon Hill put having a positive mental attitude as number 7 of his Keys To Success:17 Principles Of Personal Achievement. {<Free Copy}

My favorite self-help book is Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude {<Free Audiobook} by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone.

These two classics can help feed your mind with the positive vitamins and minerals that will lead to success.

“Life is A Mirror And Will Reflect Back To The Thinker What He Thinks Into It”*

When you have a PMA, you become enthusiastic, and start working on your goals. And taking action is what separates people, and completes the miracle process.

Conversely, by thinking negatively about a project, you either put it off, do it poorly, or fail by not even getting started. Then the fear of failure causes the very thing that is feared to happen, because you don’t even try.

Physical health is important, but just as important is your mental & emotional health because of how it affects your physical health.

Personally, I’ve found that when I’m grateful for what I have, I instantly have a PMA, and then I feel healthier and more alive than ever before.

By learning how to exercise control over your thoughts, you’ll become happier and more grateful. Then you’re life will get better, and you’ll be healthier too.

It’s more important than going to the gym, and It’s also the smart thing to do.

All the best, – Herb

Becca’s Gift

Thanks to all the self-help books & audios that I’ve assimilated, I am financially independent. However, I still choose to use my skills as a contractor and tradesman a few days per week.

I usually delegate chores to my employees, so that I can concentrate my energy on my specialties. Yet, despite my deep understanding of the power of positive thinking, I am still only human.

With that said, the other day I had a spirited debate with one of my workers because I referred to another employee as an idiot because he showed up late with the wrong material.

Then because of the law of attraction several other things went wrong throughout the day which then triggered me to resort back to some of my old mental habits.

When I got home after work I sat down to eat dinner, and I turned the TV on to distract my thoughts from the day’s events.

I watched the true-to-life story about Becca Schofield, a seventeen year old girl who has inoperable brain cancer. And as I watched it not only changed my state of mind, but it changed my life forever.

As I heard how Becca touched the lives of people all around the world, and inspired acts of kindness with her positive attitude, I was deeply moved.

I’m 55 years old now, and even though I used to smoke cigarettes, etc., I am now blessed with an excellent degree of health. But, this 17 year old angel is incredibly ill to the point of knocking on heaven’s door.

My favorite self-help book of all time is Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude {<Free Audiobook} by Napoleon Hill & W.Clement Stone. Yet, it’s interesting that after reading it many times, as well as hundreds of other self-help books, that nothing has ever changed me so quickly and as drastically as the tale of Becca Schofield.

Many other people have generously donated money, so that Becca’s parents can stay home and take care of her during her final months. And since such acts of kindness are a worthy cause, I will do the same.

But, perhaps an equally as nice gesture is living by and spreading the words of this wonderful young lady. So, the next time an employee messes up, I’m going to laugh at their humanity, and smile as I remember the gift of Becca and what she said, “positivity is a choice.”

This is dedicated to Becca Schofield.

All the best, – Herb.
