In Everything Give Thanks

 “Gratitude Is The Fairest Blossom That Springs From The Soul”*

When you’re content with what you have, you usher in a deep state of mind that is spiritual in nature – gratitude. And gratitude is bliss.

By consciously developing a sense of gratitude in all things, you exalt the Divine Mind. This is the master key that unlocks the treasure chest and beauty of God.

Like all other states of mind, gratitude can ripen into habit. By giving thanks every day, you taste deeply from the fruits of gratitude. Then those fruits send forth a bountiful harvest.

“The Mighty Oak Sleeps In the Acorn”*

The term self-made might lead you to believe that it is a truism, yet nobody reaches the top of success mountain without many helping hands up along the way.

In  21 Success Secrets Of Self-Made Millionaires {<Free Copy} by Brian Tracy, number 17 is “Get Around The Right People” for a reason.

When you set a goal, and take the initial steps, you’ll soon be getting help along the way from unexpected people.

You also get lots of help from your own subconscious mind, and the quantum field of energy that I call God.

So, don’t just give thanks for the human help, but also for the Divine help that you receive.

“‘Thank You’ Is The Best Prayer That Anyone Could Say”*

The key to getting what you pray for is to be grateful for it as though you’ve already received it. Because the emotion of gratitude emits magnetic vibrations into the universe that attract even more to be grateful for.

By focusing your mind on something specific through the fine art of prayer, you usually get what you ask for, or something even better.

“Gratitude Is The Sign Of Noble Souls”*

Gratitude is also a matter of perspective. By comparing disagreeable circumstances or events to what they might have been, you’ll often find that things could have been worse.

Look around the world, and you’ll find much to be grateful for. Do you have good food and potable water to drink? Can you walk, talk, see, and hear? Are you free to pursue your dreams? Most of all, if you’re alive and in reasonable health, then you’ve got it made.

A close friend of mine was afflicted with a health concern since birth, but it only strengthened this powerhouse of a lady to develop her natural gifts. Gifts that might have otherwise laid dormant.

An insightful poet and talented writer, she also became a superstar mother. Then her daughter in turn became one of the most talented artists around.

The lesson is, no matter how bad you think you have it, there’s always somebody else who has it worse. And winner’s like my friend always find a way to turn it around and give it positive meaning.

“The Essence Of All Beautiful Art, All Great Art, Is Gratitude”*

Find new creative ways to express your gratitude. Not only for material gifts, but for those who give to you of their time and effort – which is far more valuable.

Find unique ways of expressing your gratitude like mailing a handwritten letter. Then your gift of thanks will be infectious – it will effect that persons mood, which in turn will effect others.

Don’t forget to express your appreciation to those who are closest to you. It’s one of the strangest quirks about humans, but we all tend to take family and people that we see regularly for granted.

But, the truth is that one day they’ll be gone. Don’t let the regret live on after they’re gone in the form of – I wish I had told them how I felt, and how grateful I was…

“When The Night Is Darkest, The Stars Come Out”*

Gratitude comes to life when it is spoken aloud. Has a parent, friend, or spouse ever supported you by believing in you?

For myself, that special lady that I mentioned, was always there for me when I went through a living nightmare. Her faith in me, forever changed me, and I’ll always be extremely grateful and love her for it.

Remember, focus your mind on what you don’t have, and you get more of it. Focus on what you do have, and be grateful for it, and you’ll get more of that too.

The choice is obvious. Since the power of our thoughts affect our destiny, doing our best to choose positive thoughts instead of negative ones – is the wisest choice.

And since the best things in life are free, be grateful for them. Then you’ll soon discover that although gratitude costs nothing, it’s a huge investment in the future that will pay off many fold.

Thanks for your time and consideration, – Herb.

The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

“Life should be much more than just existing”*

Most people spend their days trying to make a living, instead of pursuing their dreams. Day after day, they take their place in line during rush hour traffic only to get to some unfulfilling job that they don’t even like.

And deep down inside they’re miserable because they know that they are capable of so much more. Yet, still they settle for a life of mediocrity – why?

Despite having at their command something that is far more powerful than any computer, they still haven’t figured out how to use it properly.

Ironically, most people will study up on how to use a computer properly, but not their own mind. They’ll spend hours every night surfing the web, or watching TV, but not figuring out how to achieve wealth, health, and happiness.

“The Treasure House Within You”*

If somebody came along and showed you simple, practical, and proven ways to harness the power of your own mind, and it was free, wouldn’t you at least check it out?

With The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind {<Free Copy}, Joseph Murphy has helped lots of people to change their lives from mere existence to a meaningful, rewarding, and successful life.

A clergyman, Murphy mixes the mystical powers of spiritual wisdom with proven scientific analyses to help explain why the subconscious mind is so powerful. Then he delivers simple and practical exercises to take command of it.

“The Master Secret, The Miracle-Working Power Of Your Own Subconscious Mind”*

Life skills, universal laws of mind, and how best to use them seem to be the secrets of the select few, but Murphy gives you the keys to unlock those life changing secrets.

Murphy’s findings are rooted in the bountiful insights of many great theologians, philosophers, and prophets. He also often refers to the bible, and explains the universal truths behind many biblical quotes.

With several examples and stories throughout this self-help classic, as well as lots of inspiring quotes, Murphy teaches many empowering things including:

  • Happiness – “Choose to be happy and make happiness a habit.”
  • Wealth – How to get the right attitude toward money – and attract it. “Poverty is mental illness.”
  • Forgiveness – how to forgive others, but most of all yourself. “Self-condemnation is called hell; forgiveness is called heaven.”
  • Health and mental healing – “All disease originates in the mind.”
  • Remove fear and mental blocks – “A person’s greatest enemy is fear.”
  • Success – how to do what you love. “There is no true success without peace of mind.”
  • Staying young – “Age is the dawn of wisdom.”
  • How your mind works – “You have the right to choose.”
  • Sleep – “Sleep in peace and wake in joy.”

All 20 chapters have Murphy’s “ideas to remember” at the end of them. It’s no wonder that this self-help classic is number 4 on my top 10 list of the best self-help books ever.

You can’t see spirit, but you can see the spirit of the artist, and you can hear the spirit of the musician.

And you too can learn how to let your spirit soar like a hawk high above. Only to look back at what you once were and say, “I did it.”

Let The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind {<Free Audiobook} show you how.

Regards, – Herb.

The Lords Of Self-Discipline

The truly great human beings that we all admire in the arts, sports, entertainment, and other fields, all have one thing in common to their success.

We’ve all had brilliant ideas, moments of inspiration, and inventions flash into our mind. We’ve all had dreams of how we would love our life to be.

Action Completes The Miracle Process

Action is what makes the difference between the greats and the average or mediocre. Action is what separates the top 5% from the masses who live lives of quiet desperation. And taking action is nothing more than self-discipline.

The best thing about becoming successful is not the money, but rather the type of person that you become along the way. When you welcome the disciplines that are at the root of all success, it’s like watering and nurturing the seed of your ideas and dreams. Otherwise they just wither away and die.

When you set a big goal for your life, you need to take consistent action towards it even if the completion of the goal may be far off in the distance.

Chip away at the stone, and day by day you’ll strengthen your faith, character, and you’ll keep your dream alive. And one day the masterpiece that you envisioned in your minds eye will be a reality.

Thinking about the long term consequences of your daily actions helps you to stay determined and gives you An Iron Will  {<Free Copy} by Orison Swett Marden.

Make Action A Habit

I know that it’s safer and easier to lie on the couch watching TV, but it’s also a waste of potential, knowledge, and life. And nothing great has ever been accomplished by being a couch potato.

Every act of self-discipline affects your consciousness, confidence, and increases the pleasure that you get from taking action. Plus, have you ever noticed that when you put things off, you get that nagging, lousy feeling?

When you move closer toward your goals, you feel happy and inspired, which releases endorphins. Focus on the rush of accomplishment that you get, and the nagging pain you’ll feel by being a slacker.

The Law Of Concentration

What you dwell upon grows due to the law of attraction. Accept responsibility for the circumstances in your life, and you’ll be able to change them, or how you feel about them.

Study the steps to change and improvement by reading and listening to self-help books & audios.

Lack of self-discipline created your bad habits, and it’s with self-discipline that you can break them. Nothing slows down your progress, and kills your dreams faster than a bad habit.

I used The Dickens Pattern {<Free Audio}, and Awaken The Giant Within {<Free Copy} by Tony Robbins to quit my bad habits and placebo them with new habits – like reading self-help books.

Continuous learning attracts, then opens up doors of opportunity. Then because you’re ready, you’re able to seize hold of opportunities before they slip away.

Join The 3%

Only 3% of the population ever put their goals in writing. And this same 3% have more wealth than all of the other 97% put together. Need I say more? Then listen to Walk Away From The 97% by Jim Rohn.

Study your craft. But what really separates the greats from the average is practice, practice, practice…then more practice. And while you practice use the laws of visualization and assumption to see and feel as though you were already living your dreams.

“Fear Is The Mind Killer”*

By disciplining yourself to take action despite your fears, you’ll break on through to the other side of fear where success waits.

You only have one life here on earth, so do your best to make what you will of it. “Don’t wish that things were easier, wish that you were better.”*

Regards, – Herb.
