Welcome to my new store

Once a week I will be making recomendations for reading and will be posting them in my new e-store.

Personally I love reading, that's why blogging has become so much fun. I get to write about almost anything I wish and then go off and look at all the other blogs out there. It's a great way to get a different perspective on the world.

If you enjoy a more offline style then please enjoy one or more of the books on Amazon.

Good News Broadcast

Have you noticed how the news on TV is almost always bad? I've even got friends and colleagues who have stopped watching the news because they find it depressing, and to be honest the media seems to want to create that. Sensationalist news is what keeps the ratings high. Oh dear, but at what cost?

Where are the stories about the women who are now empowered throughout Afghanistan, or the children who are getting an education in Iraq for the first time in 30 years? Where are the stories of all the people who safely returned home after being missing? Where is the cub scout helping the little old lady to cross the road?

These are the positive stories. When you hear something positive it lifts your mood, you will become more positive. Well that what I think anyway. So today I came upon this site - with it's pleasantly positive news. It's a great way to start your day.

Have fun with it and remember each morning you can create your own day, just by thinking about it.


Oh, and before I forget. If you are single or dating and reading this, there's a great article about how you can use the law of attraction to find true love. It's an interesting article and everything the authors say is exactly what I've been saying about money so if you want both Love and Money then the law of attraction is the way to go.

Ask and It Is Given - Chapter 16

Ask and It Is Given - Chapter 16

This is one of the chapters of the Book of Abraham by Esther Hicks. If you've seen the Secret you'll know who she is. If not, read this and you might just want to see it. It's available to buy as a video or to view online for $4.95. That's well worh it.

I make no money from recommending these to you I just hope that one day this message gets out to a very wide audience. Then I believe we can truly change the world, one vibrating thought at a time.

P.S. My apologies for having not written over the weekend. I was otherwise engaged living my earthbound existence. :-)

My special thanks to this blog for getting me onto the prosperity game. More on that later but let me just tell you how great it is to receive checks every day. Even in fun.

Eco-Serra, Harmonious Creative Expression: Wealth Beyond Reason, Bob Doyle

Here's a link to another Eco-Serra, Harmonious Creative Expression: Wealth Beyond Reason, Bob Doyle

It all supports my theory that this secret knowledge is growing. Now I'm still a big fan of using it myself for my own health, wealth and happiness goals, but imagine the possibilities if collectively we could all use it for something far greater.

One example is the study in DC that showed that when 400 believers got together and meditated for a 25% drop in violent crime in the city over the summer (it's the US number 1 murder capital) they actually achieved a 25% drop in violent crime.

The police, who had been their biggest sceptics, become a co-sponsor of the research paper published at the end of the experiment.

Now that's a great endorsement for us all getting together and doing something similar in our own cities and towns.

Now try it yourself. here are the rules incase you were unsure.

1 - Ask the universe for something, anything. Make it feel achievable and believable to you right now. Really Believe. That's the key.
2 - The universe will answer, just like the genie in the lamp "your wish is my command"
3 - Receive. Now you have to be ready to receive because you were focused on what you wanted. You may even have been looking out for it, but be ready to receive and it shall be yours.

This has to be the worlds simplest and most powerful, never failing 3 step program.

One example. Back when we were first getting involved in the law of attraction my wife , who, by her own admission can be sceptical wanted to put it to the test. She told me that night as we were going to bed
"I'm going to ask the universe for something simple", my response was
"OK, What?". She said
"Tomorrow at work, the universe will get someone to buy me a diet coke. It's never happened before, despite all the work I do for these people and the rewards they give me no-one has ever bought me a diet coke, so that's what I want."

Well, the very next day at work she called me all excited and told me that during a promotion/in-office competition she had won $ It was handed to her there and then and she went and bought the diet coke.

Now she believes a whole lot more than she did. You can too. Just try it.

Thanks Universe.

Get paid for doing what you love

Those of you who have seen The Secret will probably know the name Bob Doyle.

He's one of the panel of experts regularly appearing in the movie. It turns out that Bob is local to me here in Georgia AND is an old school friend of a very good friend of mine. In fact, the one we are working with on the Real Estate business.

I've already signed up for Bob's "Wealth Beyond Reason" program and am incredibly impressed with the breadth and depth of the content and knowledge contained within. What I'm also happy to have discovered is that he runs an affiliate program.

What that means in short, is that if you sign up to Bob's program as an affiliate, you can get paid for referring others to do the same. Brilliant!! Finally, the universe is providing a way for me to get paid doing what I love to do, which is learning new things and then sharing that knowledge.

Apparently, if you can get paid for doing what you love to do, you'll never work another day in your life. Now I cannot remember who originally said that but it's a perfectly fitting quote for here and one I plan on turning into a reality.

I wholeheartedly recommend Bob's program - it really does take the Law of Attraction and turn it into something you can use every day, for you own benefits and to benefit those around you.

My other big push came to me as I wrote yesterdays blog about the USA Today story. It turns out that T Harv Eker has an affiliate program too - called his ambassadors program. As a fan of his books and courses I thought you too might like to either read the books, or sign up as an ambassador.

Let me know how you get on.

Both of these guys understand the law of attraction and how you and I can use it for increasing our wealth.

I hope you enjoy their work as much as I do.


Here's the words of T Harv Eker - the author of "Secrets of the millionaire mind" - It's a pretty impressive boast.

"Give Me Five Minutes and I Can Predict Your Financial Future for the Rest of Your Life. Even Better, I'll Show You How to Turn it Around Overnight!"

In just five minutes I can identify what is called your money and success "blueprint."

Each of us has a personal money and success blueprint ingrained in our subconscious mind and it is this blueprint, more than anything else, that determines your financial destiny.

Your "money blueprint" is simply your preset program or way of being in relation to money. This consists of your thoughts, feelings, and actions related to money.

Your financial blueprint consists of the "programming" you received in the past, especially as a young child. For most people, this would include parents, siblings, friends, authority figures, teachers, religious leaders, media, and your culture, to name a few.

If you've been traveling in the wrong direction,
I'm going to reveal how to set your blueprint for success. It's simple once you know these secrets.

Your blueprint is like a thermostat. If the temperature in the room is 72°, chances are good that thermostat is set for 72°. Is it possible that because the window is open and it's cold outside, the temperature can drop to 65°?

Of course, but what will eventually happen is that the thermostat will kick in and bring the temperature back to 72°.

The only way to permanently change the temperature in the room is to reset the thermostat. In the exact same way, the only way to change your level of financial success on a permanent basis is to reset your financial thermostat, otherwise known as your money blueprint.

In Secrets of the Millionaire Mind , I reveal exactly what you need to do to reset your financial thermostat and program yourself for automatic success. And that's just the beginning. I also help you identify the patterns of thinking that have been holding you back, and what you need to do to turn them around.

So snag your copy right now right now by clicking here. You have nothing to lose ... and are you ever going to be happy with your new lifestyle in a very short time!

T Harv Eker.

1 Million Dollars

When my wifes breakfast turned up in the hospital this morning it came with a copy of USA today, which made me chuckle because this normally only happens in hotels, but then I realized we were paying for it anyway so.....

Amyway - In the business section, was this article about the "Magic Number" of the American Dream. $1 Million. Were you aware that the number of people with $1 million or more in net worth in the USA grew 7% to 2.7 million in 2005? By contrast, when Rockefeller and Carnegie walked there were only 4,000 millionaires. Mr. Monopoly is the symbol of Parker Brothers' long-running board game.

Will you be one? There's a test you can take too: The Millionaire Test. You enter a number of variables and it tells you at what age to expect your first million.

Guess when I'm going to make mine? Well according to the paper "Based on your inputs it appears that you will not become a millionaire in your lifetime. " Oooops. But you don't have to believe it if it comes up that way for you.

That's because their test is all based on saving money. I'm about making money. That's why I was very impressed when I first read the "Secrets of the millionaire mind" by T. Harv Eker. It's actually one of the books that the USA Today examples in it's story.

The premise of "Secrets of the millionaire mind" is that each of us has a financial blue print, one that has been drawn and redrawn over the years. This blueprint is the basis of how we manage money and our finances. What our expectations about money are and how the thinking of the rich is so different from the thinking of the poor. How we make money, keep money, spend money, save money, invest money and so on.

It's a great read and I'm looking forward to attending the workshop in Atlanta in November. If you are interested he also has teleseminars and evening classes.

This book, is just another one of the reasons I believe so strongly in the law of attraction and that my wife and I will be wealthy. Very wealthy by the time I am 44. As a kid growing up in England I used to think about being a millionaire. That magic number. At the time it was my English Dream. Now that I know that $1 Million back in Rockefellers' day is the equivalent of $14 Million today I want more.

The law of attraction says I can have it even though the USA Today suggests I cannot. So I'll leave you for now as I go off to complete the crossword, wrap up my fish'n'chips and then ask the universe for my new magic number. :-)

Enjoy your day - It's a great one, filled with possibility.

Thanks to each and everyone who sent us notes, thoughts, prayers, emails, pigeons, lasagnes and vibrations for my wifes surgery.

The operation was a complete success. In fact, and without going into the details, better than a success. We got positive news we hadn't even considered. So I'm very happy and very, very grateful. Not just to the doctors, nurses and hospital staff but to friends, neighbors, family, the universe and well wishers. Thank you all.

Once she's all safely tucked up in bed at home I will continue with my regular posts.

Upcoming: Part 2 of the how we got started on the law of attraction

Today I'm asking for a speedy recovery

Today is my wifes surgery. So I'm going to ask the universe to grant my wish.

Dear Universe,

You know my wife, she is a great person whom many love and admire, well, today she is having surgery. You've probably already heard the requests from friends and family for her speedy recovery but here's mine, in writing.

Please make it so that her surgery is short, painless and 100% successful - I know you can do it. Please then ensure that her recovery is immediate, her feelings of comfort enhanced and her return home to me swift. I have faith in you, the doctors, nurses and her.

Thank you for all you do for us. My gratitude for all you bring us in immense.

Richard & The dogs.

P.S. I know you're working on making our wealth a reality also so thanks for your continued support on that one. :-)

Real Estate, Foreclosures and Cash Flow

So, it's happened again! To be honest, every day that goes by I am less and less surprised when it does but it gives me a super high feeling each and every time.

Yesterday my wife and I saw a sign for a yard sale and always fancying ourselves as the perfect bargain shoppers we stopped by. Now the yard in question happens to be on the subdivision right next to ours and we walk our dogs past the house daily so it was great to be local. Within just 30 seconds we had spotted 4 beautiful side lamps and a water feature fountain. Now they're ours for just $20. And They look great in our house :-)

Well, we spoke with the owners briefly and they're a nice couple who've been down here in Georgia for several years but feel that now is the time to move back to Ohio, they even told us they were using the lamps just that morning, such was the speed with which they were packing up.

Given that news we decided to go back today (Sunday) to see if there was anything else we might snap up for a bargain. There was, but more importantly they asked us if we wanted to buy their house. This started a discussion about the state of the real estate market in the US in general, touched on the foreclosure stats in Georgia, the rental market nationwide and then branched off into how my wife and I had gotten into real estate investing.

Here's how, and I make no apology for the shameless plugs of the material. It has truly changed our lives and is the whole reason we ever came across the people and materials that turned us onto the law of attraction in the first place. So again, I owe a huge debt of thanks to the authors and friends.

So here goes:
I travel a lot for my day job, so I'm always looking for books to read on the flights. Never fiction, rather non-fiction, business or life education books.

I'm constantlty trying to be the best person I can be for me, my wife and our family and friends. So in January 2005 I found Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. That led me to purchase the No Money Down system by Carelton Sheets.

I was hooked but I couldn't convince my wife, especially as she was all tied up with our upcoming wedding that April. We moved from NJ to GA that July and started looking for a home. I'd convinced my wife that we should try out the Carleton Sheets approach and after some persuasion she watched some of the material and agreed.

I'll cut a long story short except to say that we could have bought our house with NO money down but chose not to. However we did get the right type of mortgage to support our cashflow objectives as suggested by Rich Dad, Poor Dad's Robert Kiyosaki. Check out the Cashflow Quadrant.

I've just realized how long this entry is so I'll finish here and continue this story tomorrow. See you then and enjoy the rest of your weekemd.

Success, Attitude, and the Law of Attraction

How many times have you asked a person in the morning, “How’s it going?” and the response is, “Oh, I can already tell it’s going to be a bad day.”

Really? Does this person have a crystal ball?

Does that reply make you regret you even asked the question? Our thoughts and words are like magnets. They send out a beacon looking for whatever matches their vibration. Is this psycho-babble? No. Your mind has the creative ability to attract situations, people, and opportunities that are in line with your thinking patterns.

That being said, if someone starts their day stating that he can tell it’s going to be bad, that person is already programming the channel that plays “bad things” according to his consciousness. He might encounter himself in situations that affirm his words: conflict with a co-worker, difficulty attracting new business, delays in closing business, argument with a relative, and the list goes on. This type of experience is also known as the self-fulfilling prophecy. If you expect the worst, then it doesn’t leave much mental room for attracting positive, high energy outcomes. That is how the law of attraction works.

On a brighter note, if you set the intention to live with energy and enthusiasm, then you will notice that your experiences will reflect that which your mind has created. The mind is a powerful tool. Knowing this information, you now bear the responsibility of putting action to your words and thought to your thinking. This accountability is not necessarily one that is popular. Why? It means that you now have to take extra time to consider the effects of your thoughts and words. Our thoughts, not simply our actions, create our reality. Our world is based on cause and effect.

How do you create the mental atmosphere for successful, uplifting thoughts?

Follow these 3 simple, proven steps:

1. Begin by setting an intention for attracting positive, high vibration situations and outcomes. You can start by affirming that today is a great day! If you own a business, you can say, “My business is successful and profitable. I am thankful for my prosperity and wealth of business connections.”

2. Support your thoughts by writing a journal…just be aware of the words you use. In this journal, it is recommended you write in the first-person, present tense and affirmative. For instance, you can say “I am open and receptive to the riches and abundance of life. My business is thriving!” Notice how this statement is written in first person, present tense. This statement uplifts you.

An example of a statement that does not lift your vibration level nor attract success into your life is: “I hope that I no longer have to struggle in my life.” What is the difference? Here, this statement talks about “hoping” (future tense, not present). Further, the words “no longer have to struggle” imply that you are struggling. Think for a moment. Is this something you really want to affirm for your life? Even though you may be going through challenges, your mind will not attract situations to lift you out of that struggle because it is focused on hearing the word “struggle”. Get the point?

3. Know that there may be subconscious negative beliefs that may sabotage your success. That’s okay, just deal with them. No one is saying that life is completely perfect at any given time. There may be mental programming you need to get rid of, such as a belief of unworthiness. Acknowledge these subconscious messages and state the following, “Any limiting beliefs or ideas which are subconscious or conscious are dissolved in this moment now.”

Believe in the power of your words. Remember, they are like magnets. Now that you have gained a greater awareness of your thoughts and their corresponding effects, you will make the connection between your thoughts, words and what you attract into your life.

Remember—think with a positive mental attitude! Transformation occurs when you align your consciousness with thoughts and words of success. Become a magnet for attracting high energy, happy thoughts and life situations. Enjoy your life!

Israel, Lebanon and Terrorism

Mother Theresa once said "I will NEVER attend an anti-war rally. The moment you have a peace rally call me"

That's because she understood the power of the law of attraction. The way it works is to manifest whatever you are thinking, so think war and you will get war, think terrorism and you'll get terrorism, think peace and guess what? You'll get peace. It's that simple and you cannot change it.

So it is with everything in the world today. We created it. And by the same token, we can uncreate it. Put a positive spin on everything. Say I will carry these eggs safely to the car and not I hope I don't drop these eggs. Remember the law of attraction manifests your thoughts. Negative words gets you results that are just that. Positive words equally, get you positive results.

If all you say all day is stop the war, stop innocents dying, stop our troops getting killed. Then sadly you are manifesting more war, more innocents dying and more troops getting killed.

If you wish to change anything in the world you don't like then put a positive spin on it.

Now I'm no pacifist, bleeding heart, left wing, liberal. In fact some would argue quite the opposite. But I am favor of being a good person, a great neighbor - a lover. :-)

So I ask you. All of you. Spread your message positively. Ask the universe for peace for all, ask for love for all, ask for understanding for all. Ask for a world we can live in together, in harmony with all.

The more of us that do this - positively - AND believe in it, the sooner it will be real. For all of us. Now be ready to receive it.

Peace to all.


The Law of Attraction

Yesterday was a good day for me. In fact it was a great day. I didn't make millions of dollars or discover a way to prevent illness (although I believe that the law of attraction works for that too - just consider the placebo affect) I just witnessed at least 2 more examples of the law of attraction at work.

Firstly, last November, My wife and I moved into a newly built house backing onto a large wooded area. The problem was that one of the trees was positioned right up next to the deck, or maybe it was the deck that was built too close to the tree. But either way it started shedding it's leaves at the beginning of summer and we wanted that to stop. A lot. So we just kept saying what a nuisance that tree was, right there. Now it's been confirmed that it has died and the builder has arranged for a tree surgeon to come and remove it. I'm pleased because now our backyard will appear to be twice the size and I won't have to pick up leaves all year round.

Now, just in case you think we're evil for killing a tree, firstly we didn't know we were at the time and secondly as a mark of respect and out of thanks to the universe we will be planting two new trees, at the very rear of our yard, away from the house. You know, just to give a little back.

My second reason for feeling great: For those of you who have read my blog about my dream board you'll remember that I had the beautiful new Bentley on it. Well just yesterday I saw it - In my town, crossing the railroad tracks - It was just waiting for me. I phoned my wife all excited and we agreed. It's getting closer. You just don't see this big British car in these parts of the South. It's too rare.

But there it was - in my town and waiting for me. Well it had too - I had the right of way. :-) But here it comes. My Bentley has found me and now it knows roughly where I live. It will be back, that I know. And when it comes back it'll be mine. In fact I may even go and test drive one soon. Just so I can keep the picture and the feelings in my mind.

That's how this law works. I love it.

Double your money

Did you know that you only have to double a dollar 20 times before it becomes $1M?

That's incredible. It seems so simple. Regular readers of my blog will know that one of my goals is to be wealthy. Well this guy seems to be on to something with his 2o steps program. I only found him because he left a comment on my Blog. Thanks Mike - you were my second. Ever.

His challenge looks like a great goal to have. I will send him some very positive thoughts as he continues.

Now, if it's that simple I just have to come up with my own method. What do you think would happen if I asked everyone who came to my blog to pay just $1? I'm getting some more ideas. Thanks Universe.

The Winners

We won! Yep, last nights kick-about (pick up) soccer game was won by the team I played on. We play every Thursday and although I've only played in one previous match we have been bettered by the opposition each time. Well, not last night. We won. Most importantly we won by the two goals that I said we would.

After the game, in an English Pub in Georgia I started talking to my neighbors, J and his wife K about the Secret and realized just how "far out there" this thinking is by comparison to the accepted norms. I mean, these are smart people and well paid but even when I was talking about the basics of financial freedom, you know - the Rich Dad way, I could sense their unease.

It was a reminder to me of just how far I have come on my journey to financial freedom. In fact this journey is not just mine. My wife and I share it, every step of the way but that wasn't the easiest agreement to reach I can assure you. Now we agree, we drive each other on and that has made our lives so much easier. Being out of alignment with a partner or loved one is tough, on both of you. Some of you already know this and some of you have already found ways to work together. I'd love to hear from both types of you out there.

Maybe the comments section here could prove to be a little self help column for those people?

Now, whatever comes our way we believe that "Together, We Win." Maybe by just 2 goals but maybe by any measure of our $10M in assets inside 7 years or any of our health or happiness goals.

When we first started dating, my now wife told me that she had one simple rule for me to follow. (now, since we've been married I have noticed that there are a whole lot more rules to follow - say nice things, don't do that, shoes live upstairs, they're your dogs too, one drink is enough - that kind of thing :-) But I digress. The one rule she had was:

If she is happy then I am happy.

So, I do what I can to follow that rule, wherever I can. It's not as easy as it sounds because I don't always say nice things, I do do that, shoes stay where I take them off, my dogs love to sleep while hers (they are the same 2 dogs) need walking....a lot and I do like to drink (one has never been enough.) But!! When I remember her rule, and make her happy, she does in fact make me very, very, very happy.

I suppose with that said. I win all ways round.

Have a great day and think about something that makes you happy. Go on, try it.....

Give Thanks

So today my day job means that I have to go and present an idea to a customer. I'm excited as I have been working on the document and presentation for weeks and today marks the end of that piece of work, at least for a while.

It gave me time to clear some email and look around at other blogs. There's so much out there that's smart, funny, educating and well written. The world really is filled with some gifted people.

Sticking with the theme of my blog I thought today would be an appropriate day to give back, to say thanks. You see, the secret and the law of attraction work when you give thanks for what you have and are grateful for.

So I'm going to start and in case you think I'm ungrateful for missing anything this, in no way is going to be, a comprehensive list.

Today I am grateful for:
  • My Health. I must focus hard and give up smoking soon. In fact if I think about it I should really say that I should be an ex-smoker soon. I have to remember to put a positive spin on everything.
  • My Wife - A really fantastic spirit who really is my inspiration for so many things.
  • Funny things - or anything that makes you laugh. Like this blog. It's amazing how good you feel when you're smiling and laughing.
  • My Friends - A mixed bunch of all sorts. A real cross section. For being good to me, allowing me to be good to them and for believing in me (even though they now think I've vibrated myself half way to the nut house)
  • The internet - for allowing me to get this story and message out there. All this writing is incredibly cathartic don't you know.
  • The universe - for answering and delivering when I ask for something. Did you know that in the last week, everytime we have looked for a parking space the one directly in front of the store is being vacated as we get there? Just for us. It's true.
  • - for keeping me grounded. I don't know how you work but I'm glad you do.
  • The law of attraction - for working in the same way as gravity. I don't know how you do what you do but please keep on doing it.

That's it for today except to say that I thank my parents daily for the grounding they gave me, the love, the support, the freedom and the rules. They have helped immensely in becoming who I am today. Thanks Mum and Dad.

What the @#! (bleep)?

Just a quick note to say that if you are interested in The Secret and want to go a little (well quite a lot actually) deeper into the whole subject then you should definitely check out What the Bleep.

Here's an interesting article from their website featuring a conversation with The Secret's Co-Producer Paul Harrington.

Be prepared though - It's a real eye opener. If you never knew anything about Quantum Physics before you watched it, you certainly will afterwards.

Also - thanks to Lizza for being the very first person to post a comment on my blog. Thanks Lizza.

My Dream

My dream is to be wealthy, healthy and happy.

No different from all the dreams out there I hear you say and it probably isn't. It would be fantastic if we could all have wealth, good health and could live happily doing whatever it is that makes us most happy. So why is mine different? Because it is mine. Yours is different for the very same reason. It is yours.

I think for our dreams to become reality we have to really own them. Create them, make them ours individually, feel them, imagine them, smell them, live them. In our minds.

I think our dreams have to be tangible. We have to be able to see them, touch them, hear them, smell them, taste them. To make my dream a reality I intend to live like I've already achieved it. Now I'm not telling you that I am going to go and buy all the things I desire and rack up debt to achieve that and I certainly don't advocate that you do it either but I do believe that I should test drive that car, walk through that house, take a trip on that boat and really capture my feelings at that time. Then close my eyes and ask the universe to deliver those feelings to me through ownership of those very same things.

My dream is incredible. Not because no one has ever achieved it before. In fact, there are thousands of people out there who are already doing, having and living the life I picture, but incredible because I now believe it to be real and achievable.

Now I know I'm going to have to quantify my dream, to be really specific about it and I intend to do that, but this is my beginning. It feels real, it feels achievable and it feels mine......Already.
So what is my dream beyond the health, wealth and happiness?

(I paused for a moment as I wrote this, glanced up at my dream board, took a deep breath, and paused again.)

Now I'm not so sure, at least about the details. Every day I believe that I am becoming closer to my understanding of the universe and it's enormous power and with that understanding I believe that more and more is possible. So where do I stop? How specific should I be? By when?

Months ago I set out to achieve $10,000,000 in assets inside 7 years and have a passive income of $100,000 per month. Back then that was incredible, enormous, laughable even. Now it seems small by comparison to what I can achieve, based on what I know about how the law of attraction works.

Even just two nights ago, after watching The Secret, I went to bed, my head spinning with endless possibilities, endless opportunities and the belief that I could have anything I desired, equally importantly, so could anyone else. Absolutely anyone. As I drifted off to sleep my mind started writing my epitaph. Gloomy huh? Not really. What I ended up with gave me a rush of energy through my body and I had the best nights sleep I've had in months.

It started: Richard Stocks died yesterday The 112 year old, billionaire founder of the New Way Schools that provide a fundamentally different kind of education on life skills that are truly relevant and universally important; financially free thinking, Literacy, Math, Quantum Physics and the Law of attraction among others, across the globe. Survived by his wife, their 3 children, 7 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren his legacy will last forever. Business partners and friends Robert and Kim Kiyosaki, Bill and Melinda Gates and Jack Canfield will attend the funeral.....

And then I was asleep.

Now what am I supposed to make of that? Does my goal now become a Billion or more dollars and that school? Which by the way I seriously believe is needed and I do believe it is possible, so should I set that out there? Or, should I start with my smaller $10M dream first?
As you can see, my journey is really just beginning and I don't have all the answers. Not even close.

If you do though, any chance you could drop me a line? I'd love to hear your Secret or Law of attraction stories also.

I couldn't wait until tomorrow to write again. I have a feeling running through my body like I have been supercharged with electricity. This could be the vibrations they talk of.

Now unless you already know and belive in the secret what I am going to list is going to sound ridiculous and outlandish. The following list is just a small part of my bigger wish list.

1 - A promotion and a 30% + pay rise.
2 - $36,000 from a foreclosures assistance service I'm working on with some friends
3 - My wife, who is going into surgery next week to have a successful operation and a painless recovery.

I was taught that the universe is like a giant catalogue where you can place an order for anything. If you are spiritual then it is simply a request. If you are religious then that request is just a prayer. Either way, ask and you will receive.

The above list represents my order for the next 30 days. I have ASKED, the rules state that the universe will ANSWER, now all I have do to is be open to receiving.

I am. I hope you are too.

I'll let you know how I get on.

The Secret is Out

....or at least it should be. That's part of my reason for starting this blog. Everyone should know the secret and everyone should use the secret. In my mind it would help to bring peace and harmony, health and happiness to the world. I'm going to tell everyone I can about it.

Spread the word. Think something good and let it happen - That's the secret. The message is that if you first ASK for something the universe will ANSWER with an unquestioning "your wish is my command" and then all you have to do is RECEIVE what you asked for. It's that easy.

Last night I started on my Dream Board. I was looking through magazines for pictures of expensive and luxurious houses, cars, boats, planes, watches and so on, when it happened again.

I had already cut out a picture of the wonderfully stylish Bentley Continental Flying Spur and had cut out one of the many Jet aircraft part ownership programs when I noticed that in the background to that plane picture was exactly the car I had just decided upon.

When this magic happens it happens constantly. Let it happen to you. Just ask, let the universe answer and then be prepared to receive what you asked for.

Until tomorrow.

The Secret

WOW!! I have just watched the new movie The Secret and it is fantastic. I've been working on the leap of faith. But rest assured it is working never the less.

Just in this last week I have had momentary thoughts about friends and colleagues I've not spoken to for a while and out of the blue I get three emails, one from each and each one just hours after the thought entered my head. This is powerful stuff.

Whether you believe it or not it is working and you can change your life, your love and your luck just by using it.
