The Dark Night of The Soul

When I was a teenager, the one thing I dreaded (or feared) the most was leaving behind childhood friends in Southern California and starting a new life in, holy @#$%, the real South. Georgia, the Peachtree State, to be specific. My step-mother offered me a way out — a way to say “Sayonara” to some […]

Let’s Be Honest & Clear About Something:

The gap between the Haves and the Have-Nots isn’t due to anything the former group is doing. But, verifiably and legitimately, it is due to what the latter group is NOT doing. Things like NOT increasing their skill sets, improving their minds, changing their beliefs, and solving problems or adding value in some way, shape, […]

From Victim to Persuader

Last week, Barry wrote a post talking about victimitis-thinking and how some people expect a handout when things are bad for them.

(Guest Article) One Bite at a Time

Barry came across this new blog post written by John Mylant, a trading coach that he follows. When we both read it, we felt that it highly resonated with the way we think, and what we teach (or, some would say, preach). Yes, we’re big on congruency.

‘Herd’ on The Secret… and… The Disrobed Monk

As a researcher of metaphysics, interviewer, writer, and just plain open-minded explorer of  all things that help us humans DISCOVER, CONTRIBUTE and get RESULTS, I’ve seen and heard some fascinating “stuff.” Things that make me jump up and down and yell, “Holy @#$%… that was very cool,” and things that cause me to shake my […]

A Colossal Failure of Common Sense

A little over 10 days ago — give or take a few (don’t hold me to it) — one of our local radio DJs, during his afternoon news update, told how a Staten Island 15-year-old teenager, in classic Looney Tune style, fell down an open manhole while walking AND texting. He basically said that the […]
