Learn Something New – Starting Today!

Follow my blog with BloglovinI often find myself looking back at so many things I wanted to do in years gone by. Things I wanted to learn or try but just never got around to it. And then, with thanks to my children, I learned the wonders of YouTube. Now I know most people view YouTube as a web site that shows funny clips of people getting hit between the legs or maybe a place you can find a clip from an old TV show or music videos. But one day I ran into an old friend of mine and through conversation, he asked me if I wanted his old guitar. He was purchasing a new one next week, an upgrade, and didn’t need the old one.

The Strangest Secret

secretI have been a big believer of our thoughts creating our reality and The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale explores exactly that.  This is one of those books that I have read that all pretty much say the same thing, which leads me to believe them as I have been seeing these things work in my life.

If you are interested in finding out a little more about this “Secret”, you can download the PDF for free here.  I would suggest as you read this that you try hard to eliminate the skeptic thoughts and give it a shot.  This is not something that tells you to just think about money in your account and next thing you know, you have an abundance of cash in your checking account.  It does tell you that what you think about most is what your life becomes and that you are exactly where you are in life because of your thoughts.  And that’s because thoughts trigger beliefs, which trigger actions, which triggers results.  You know who thinks about money more than rich people?  Poor people.  If you constantly think you can never get out of your current situation, you’re probably right.  So why not think about getting out of that situation and what it would be like?  Once you truly feel and have faith in those thoughts, you will begin to notice things that will help you achieve your goals and you will start working towards those goals. read more
