All Thoughts Are Magnetic in Nature

"Tell yourself, "There IS a way." All thoughts are magnetic. As soon as you tell yourself, "I'm beaten. There's no way to conquer this problem," negative thoughts are attracted, and each of these helps convince you that you are right, that you are whipped. Believe instead, "There is a way to solve this problem," and positive thoughts rush into your mind to help you find a solution. It's believing "there is a way" that is important."

"WE SEEK TO CONTROL OUR LIVES WHEN WE DO NOT TRUST, WHEN WE DO NOT LOVE. Our ego, perceiving itself to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control in an effort to protect itself.

At the root of our need to control, we find FEAR. It may be fear of the unknown. Fear of not coping. Fear of loss. Or possibly even fear of looking stupid. And as our efforts to control other people and events invariably fail, our fear increases.

Trust, on the other hand, is a quality of the soul. While control is a tool of the mind, TRUST AND FAITH ARE ASPECTS OF THE HEART. Trust comes with the deep knowing that we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. When we trust enough in life to give up our need to control, we can relax and open to the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind."

-- John Robson

"The journey to know ourselves ideally brings us to self-understanding and acceptance. It is NOT a quest for self-improvement.

When we open to love and accept ourselves, no matter what, our innate love, power and wisdom emerge naturally."

-- John Robson

The Right Attitudes Win For You

"Attitudes do make the difference. Salesmen with the right attitude beat their quotas; students with the right attitude make 'A's; right attitudes pave the way to really happy married life. Right attitudes make you effective in dealing with people, enable you to develop as a leader. Right attitudes win for you in every situation."

-- David Joseph Schwartz

"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."

Few People Understand Failure

"Failure is generally accepted as a curse.  But few people ever understand that failure is a curse only when it is accepted as such.  But few ever learn the truth that failure is seldom permanent."

-- Napoleon Hill

"We arrive on this planet empty handed. We all will soon leave empty handed. So then, how and in what spirit do we want to spend the time in between?"

Your Brain Sees No Difference

"When you perform any task in real life, researchers have found, your brain uses the same identical processes it would use if you were only vividly visualizing that activity. In other words, your brain sees no difference whatsoever between visualizing something and actually doing it."

-- Jack Canfield

"And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity-all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply."

-- Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

Why Are You Afraid

"Why are we afraid!  Have you ever heard a parent calling out to a child going off to school, 'Take some risks today, Darling.'  Considering how many 'be carefuls' our parents bombarded us with, it's amazing we even manage to walk out the front door!"

-- Susan Jeffers

"When I stand before thee at the day's end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing."

Our Comfort Zone Come With A Price

"Change involves a degree of risk, which the comfort zone associates with fear, and in an attempt to avoid the fearful images that accompany the risk we allow our comfort zone to keep us safe where we are. But this security comes at a price. By remaining where we are, we stay stuck in what may be a very damaging and toxic situation."

-- Gary Dooley

"And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth.

Life Is Passing By While You Wait

"Don't spend time worrying about whether you will lose your job, or whether you will have money or health problems somewhere down the road.  Most of the things that people worry about never come to pass. While you are waiting, life is passing by, and the precious moments that you spend waiting will never come again."

-- Barry Parker

How To Learn From Personal Experience

"The simple approach of doing things and then reflecting on how they went and what you can learn from the experience of undertaking activities is extremely powerful.  Since the earliest days, mankind has learnt from personal experience."

-- Richard Newton and Ciprian Adrian Rusen

"We are the ocean -- vast, deep, powerful and rich. Nourishing and nurturing. Dive down into the dark stillness of being.  Sense the rising and falling of surface thoughts and emotions, sometimes gentle, sometimes violent. Always shifting. Always in motion. Draw back and watch the waves of your life at play. Know you are the unfathomable depths -- surface agitations can't disturb you. Know that you are bigger than the little things that aggravate you."

-- John Robson

Friday, August 15, 2014

Success Is Based On Imagination

"Your potential is unlimifed.  It depends on you. How far do you want to go?  Remember what Thomas Edison said: Success is based on imagination plus ambition and the will to work."

-- W. Clement Stone

"We can experience any kind of pleasure and pain either too much or too little. But to experience all this at the right time, toward the right objects, toward the right people, for the right reason, and in the right manner -- that is the median and the best course, the course that is a mark of virtue."

-- Aristotle

"He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment."

Life An Ongoing Process of Learning

Let Your Will Have No Power To Weaken You

"Reframing failure into feedback is a habit that is easily developed. Once your mind gets used to seeing things differently, any unsuccessful outcomes you experience will have no power to weaken your resolve to try again because you feel you are continuously learning something new and useful."

-- Gary Dooley

"There is no room for God in him who is full of himself."

-- Hasidic Saying

"Do not feed your ego and your problems, with your attention. ... Slowly, surely, the ego will lose weight, until one fine day it will be nothing but a thin ghost of its former self. You will be able to see right through it, to the divine presence that shines in each of us."

-- Eknath Easwaran

How May Years of Your Life Ahead

"You will never know how many years lie ahead of you, so it makes sense to make sure that you are not wasting them but that you spend your life in a way that makes you feel proud of yourself. "

-- Sue Hadfield

"On the spiritual path, we must be diligent to discriminate whether we are acting from ego or from soul. If ego is in charge, what we do is self- referencing. At the deepest levels, we are motivated by our own self-interest. We're looking out for ourselves more than for others.

Although soul works through individuals, its focus is on the needs of others and on service to humanity."

-- John Robson

Sunday, August 10, 2014

What Are Healthy Conversion

"Conversation is a big part of our psychological environment. Some conversation is healthy. It encourages you. It makes you feel like you're taking a walk in the warm sunshine of a spring day. Some conversation makes you feel like a winner.  But other conversation is more like walking through a poisonous, radioactive cloud. It chokes you. It makes you feel ill. It turns you into a loser."

-- David Joseph Schwartz

"Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things."

-- Albert Einstein

"Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort."

-- Paul J. Meyer

Saturday, August 09, 2014

Worrying Too Much About Failure

"If you spend very much time worrying about failure, it will build, and in the end you will fail.  The best way around this is to look upon them as challenges.  Act aggressively to get them out of your mind.  If you do this quickly every time they crop up, they will soon disappear."

-- Barry Parker

"Many of us have been taught to do our duty. What reaction does this bring up for you?

For me, doing my duty often means doing something I really don't want to do. My heart's not in it. When this is the case, tasks may get done but there's no gift to the world. We do not truly serve if we give to others with resentment.

Perhaps we need to give ourselves permission to say no and look after our own needs. When our own needs are met, we are much more likely to want to give from a full heart.

It's not selfish to look after ourselves -- it's essential!"

-- John Robson

Meaningless of Comparison to Other People

"While there is value in encouraging the best from ourselves, and in living up to our own standards, there is little to be gained from trying to see how well or badly we do in comparison to other people."

-- Lynn Williams

"The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability."

-- Henry Ford

"To serve is beautiful, but only if it is done with joy and a whole heart."

The Purpose of Your Life

"If you make anything external the purpose of your life, you will always make yourself a candidate for mental torture.  Even if you succeed in getting what you want, you will always live with the fear of losing it."

Use Failure As Feedback

"By changing the word ‘failure’ to ‘feedback’ we change our response because the word ‘feedback’ is highly unlikely to have any previously established unconscious negative associations for us."

-- Gary Dooley

"If you accept a limiting belief, then it will become a truth for you."

-- Louise Hay

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."

-- Melody Beattie

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Take Care Of Your Own Health

"Taking care of your own health is all part of living a full and happy lifestyle. Believing that you are worth it means believing that you should look after yourself – with all the things you already know you need. Working hard, looking after a family, and having fun are all easier to achieve if you are feeling rested, well and energetic."

-- Sue Hadfield

"Pick one aspect of your life, e.g. your health, your competence, your prosperity or relationships, and think back to when you were a child. What messages about this subject did you hear from adults at that time that are still playing on your subconscious tape recorder? Messages like: "Men can't be trusted." "Money doesn't grow on trees." "You're not smart enough to succeed in business."

How is your world reflecting your beliefs back to you, today?"

-- John Robson

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Creating Greater Self Confidence

"The habit of faith requires that you simply believe that there is a higher power in the universe and that this power wants the very best of you.  The greater faith you develop, the greater confidence you will have that everything that is happening to you is part of a great plan that is moving you inevitably toward something better."

-— Brian Tracy

"Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What You Can Never Lose

"You can lose the material things, but you can never lose your mastery, what you learn and who you become in the process of achieving your goals."

-- Jack Canfield

"Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going. Rather than always focusing on what's urgent, learn to focus on what is really important."

-- Stephen Covey

"Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time,' is like saying, 'I don't want to.'"

-- Lao-Tzu

Saturday, August 02, 2014

Unconscious Mind Needs You To Take Action

"The unconscioous mind will, indeed, produce the winning feeling, but unless you are actually working towards achieving your goal it will soon get stuck in a rut.  You have to see yourself as making progress, and for this you have to take action."

-- Barry Parker

"Time management is all about making decisions. At each step of the way, we want to choose activities that best support what we want to do with our lives. To do this, we need to be clear about our short and long-term goals.

Here's a general question to ask yourself often: "Is this the best use of my time in terms of meeting my goals?" Sometimes, of course, we don't have any choice. But ask yourself honestly, "Could I take more control if I really wanted to?" Often, we play the victim because we don't want to make the effort to change our behaviour."

-- John Robson

Being Perfect Is Very Limiting

"Trying to be perfect is very limiting.  It also creates an intense feeling of being trapped!  We go about our lives pulling ourselves down instead of building ourselves up.  Maybe we should all walk around with compasses."

-- Susan Jeffers

"We could hardly wait to get up in the morning."

-- Wilbur Wright

"Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard."

-- Anne Sexton

The Toxic Fears Will Die

"The way to break out of our toxic fear habits is to understand that they need ‘fuel’ in order to continue; without our input the toxic fears will die. The key to change, therefore, lies in learning how to stop feeding the fire."

-- Gary Dooley

"Passion emerges when your essence expresses itself. How do you stop yourself from fully expressing who you are?"

-- John Robson

"Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark."

-- Henri Frederic Amiel

Have The Reserves To Persevere

"Being resilient means that you are prepared for setbacks and disappointments: you don't expect that it's going to be a smooth journey, but you have the reserves to enable you to persevere."

Every Seed of Adversity

"Every great man, every successful man, no matter what the field of endeavor, has known the magic that lies in these words: Every Adversity Has the Seed of an Equivalent or Greater Benefit."

-- W. Clement Stone

"Despite our passion for romantic love, relationships are not the easiest way to find love and peace. They are, however, one of the most effective for finding our blocks.

Relationships naturally bring out into full view our desires, attachments and unconscious programs - our likes, dislikes, belief systems, judgments, compulsions, conformities, etc. Relationships challenge us because they take us deep into thoughts, feelings and experiences we have suppressed for a lifetime. That's why they provide the very best arena for personal growth!"

-- John Robson

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Negators Will Destroy Your Plan

"Be extra, extra cautious about this: don't let negative thinking people —"negators"—destroy your plan to think yourself to success. Negators are everywhere and they seem to delight in sabotaging the positive progress of others."

-- David Joseph Schwartz

"It doesn't much signify whom one marries, for one is sure to find out the next morning that it was someone else."

-- Samuel Rogers

"Human relationships are the perfect tool for sanding away our rough edges and getting at the core of divinity within us."

-- Eknath Easwaran

When You Are Undergoing What You Believe

"When Divine Intelligence wants a great man or woman to render some needed service in the world, the fortunate one is tested out through some form of failure.  If you are undergoing what you believe to be failure, have patience; you may be passing through your testing time."

-- Napoleon Hill

"View money and things not as something you create to fill a lack, but as tools to help you more fully express yourself and realize your potential."

-- Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

"The key to getting lots of strangers to work together is not to create an endless stream of new laws or institutions but to create a set of shared values. Laws are something you merely obey. Values are something you feel."

-- Edward Slingerland

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Get Off The Victim Routine

"Once we get off the victim routine, it's amazing how creative we can become.  We begin to pull our power and fill ourselves with enthusiasm and a sense of wonder at the huge number of possibilities."

-- Susan Jeffers

"What is [the role of money] in the search for meaning? Is our relationship to it one of the chief factors that keeps us in our prison, or could it also be a tool for breaking out, for awakening to a life filled with intensity of purpose?"

-- Jacob Needleman

"Money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul."

-- Henry David Thoreau

Friday, July 25, 2014

The Abundance That Flows Our Daily Life

"Consider the abundance that flows into your daily life. Cultivating gratitude nourishes our state of mind, moving us effortlessly beyond the repressive grip of the ego and its illusion of unworthiness."

-- Gary Dooley

"Our personality has a need for security. As a human in a material world, we need money to survive. If we don't have enough for basics, our lives cannot function. At the same time, with too much emphasis on the material, we lose the spiritual awareness that brings meaning and fulfillment. The key lies in the balance.

What draws most of your attention, time and energy: spiritual growth or money? Reflect on (or better yet, journal on) the balance or lack of balance of these two in your life."

-- John Robson

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Take Things In Stages

"You have to take things in stages, and the first stage is deciding what is important to you – what you are going to change. The next is to realize that it may be difficult and time-consuming, but that – if you have a plan – anything is possible. Acknowledge that there will be difficulties and drawbacks; the time will never be right and you will always have reasons to put things off and become discouraged."

-- Sue Hadfield

"Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life."

-- Omar Khayyam

"May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder."

-- John O'Donohue

All Of Us Makes Mistakes

"Everyone makes mistakes on thier way to success, and some people learn from them, and others don't.  You have to be one of the people who learn from their mistakes.  You have to try something until you get a 'hit' that works and is successful.  And keep in mind that you may encounter many mistakes before you acquire overall success."

-- Barry Parker

"Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to - you have uncovered in yourself your own wise guide."

-- Sogyal Rinpoche

"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words."

-- Robert Frost

Our Spiritual Journey

Our spiritual journey unfolds through two stages.


We arise from the one source of all, to be born as individuals in a world of form. In this physical world, we experience separation and limitation. This is a time of immersion in a world of effects, form, ego, distortion, illusion and pain.


When we have experienced enough pain, we find our way back home to our spiritual source. We let go of the illusion of separation to embrace unity and wholeness. We work with cause instead of effects.

Paradoxically, it's only with a strong and healthy personality that we become capable of expressing soul.


Are you struggling to do more and have more?
Are you aware of your soul challenging you to open to the bigger picture of life?

-- John Robson

When You Change Yourself

"You can change all things for the better when you change yourself for the better.  After all, you aren't just a plant or an animal, completely dependent on instinctive behaviour.  You are a human being, a most remarkable creation."

"For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe."

-- Larry Eisenberg

"The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper."

-- W.B. Yeats

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Accepting The Law of Cause and Effect

"Accept the law of cause and effect. Take a second look at what appears to be someone's "good luck." You'll find not luck but preparation, planning, and success-producing thinking preceded his good fortune."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

"If our minds are always busy, they don't get time to do basic maintenance - to sort, tidy up and take out the trash. If we don't periodically clear out space in our minds, there are no room for new ideas to take root.

Where do you find stillness each day and each week? Plan for quiet time, relaxation and stillness daily, even if it's only for 5 or 10 minutes."

-- John Robson

When Your Friends Constantly Complain

"If your freinds constantly complain, the solution is simple, find new friends.  Don't feel disloyal.  They'll have no problem finding someone else to complain to."

-- Susan Jeffers

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

Our Unconscious Mind Directed By Our Words

"Words direct our unconscious mind to establish automatic tendencies towards a positive or negative view of the world. Since we were not born with either view, it seems we have unconsciously programmed ourselves one way or the other."

-- Gary Dooley

"Mysterious and intimidating to contemplate, the human brain is the most complex thing there is and the most difficult task it can undertake is to understand itself."

-- David Noonan

"I don't think God cares where we were graduated or what we did for a living. God wants to know who we are. Discovering this is the work of the soul - it is our true life’s work."

-- Bernie Siegel

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Give Yourself Time To Think

"When you never have time to make love, or even to feel passionate and loving, then life has become a treadmill, where you have lost sight of what is important. If you think this is where you are heading, then take a step back and give yourself time to think and to breathe."

-- Sue Hadfield

"How deeply can you answer this question? Please realize that you are the only one who can answer it. No one else can tell you who you are. You must discover this for yourself. And the challenge of knowing ourselves is no easy task. We hope this question excites rather than intimidates you. There's so much more to you than you know at present! Isn't this intriguing? Perhaps it's time to go exploring."

-- John Robson

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Your Life Equal To Your Environment

"You are a product of your environment.  So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment.  Are the things around you helping you toward success or are they holding you back?"

-- W. Clement Stone

"To lead people walk behind them."

-- Lao Tzu

"Please... tell me who you are and what you want. And if you think those are simple questions, keep in mind that most people live their entire lives without arriving at an answer."

-- Gary Zukav

Monday, July 14, 2014

With Enthusiasm Nothing Can Stop You

"With enough enthusiasm, nothing can stop you; it can, indeed, help give you anything you want in life.  It creates persistence; enthusiastic people do not give up until they achieve their goal.  And in most cases this is what makes the difference."

-- Barry Parker

"To be authentic is literally to be your own author..., to discover your own native energies and desires, and then to find your own way of acting on them."

"Self-knowledge is the great power by which we comprehend and control our lives."

-- Vernon Howard

Sunday, July 13, 2014

The Key To Your Winning

"The key to winning what you want lies in thinking positively toward yourself. The only real basis other people have for judging your abilities is your actions. And your actions are controlled by your thoughts."

-- David Joseph Schwartz

"Who am I? To answer this, we must first learn to become more aware of ourselves. To be aware, we must STOP and PAY ATTENTION! We need to STOP and objectively watch ourselves in action.

We live most of our lives by habit. These habits keep us stuck in patterns that limit our experience of life. Once we detect a pattern we were previously unconscious of, we can choose differently, if we want. With awareness comes choice and with choice, we gain freedom."

-- John Robson

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Don't Be Stuck Waiting For Life

"Stop waiting for someone to give you your life.  You'll be waiting a long time.  You have many choices in life.  Always choose the Path that contributes to your growth and that makes you feel at peace with yourself and others."

-- Susan Jeffers

"Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is about survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive."

Friday, July 11, 2014

What Our Mind Attracts

"We know that our mind attracts what we think about, so if we mentally rehearse the changes we want, we provide it with a target at which to direct its subliminal attention. Seeing internal pictures of ourselves in the outcomes we want is one of the most influential habits we could ever cultivate in our desire for change."

-- Gary Dooley

"It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. ...I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing."

How To Keep Your Dream Alive

"If your dream is to travel and see more of the world, keep your dream alive by having a photograph or picture of the places that you would like to visit on your fridge or your desk (use travel brochures). Don't leave it until it is too late: don't become one of those people who spent their later years regretting the things they didn't do."

-- Sue Hadfield

"We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:

"What do I really want to do?"
"What brings me greatest happiness?"
"How can I bring more of these into my life?"
Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning."

-- John Robson

How To Stretch Yourself To Succeed Forever

"To achieve a big goal, you are going to have to become a bigger person. You are going to have to develop new skills, new attitudes, and new capabilities. You are going to have to stretch yourself, and in so doing, you will be stretched forever."

-- Jack Canfield

"We don't always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail...We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people's expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart."

-- Julia Cameron

Monday, July 07, 2014

Stop That Forever Thinking and Try Something

"We would advise anyone who is doing something they haven't done before is to constantly experiment.  Don't spend forever thinking, try some stuff.  It is works great.  But it's great if it doesn't work as well, as long as you learn and then adjust what you are doing.  The most important thing is to take action and make some progress."

-- Richard Newton and Ciprian Adrian Rusen

"Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge."

-- Carl Sagan

"What you must dare is to be yourself."

Look At The Positive In Your Life

"Too often people dwell on their problems, but there are always positive things in your life that you should be thankful for.  You may have your health.  Thank God you do."

-- Barry Parker

"A critic is a legless man who teaches running."

-- Channing Pollock

"Unkind criticism is never part of a meaningful critique of you. Its purpose is not to teach or to help, its purpose is to punish."

You Have The Power To Find The Path

"We all have the power to find the Path that teaches us, strengthens us, and allows us to move away from the people and situations that hurt us."

-- Susan Jeffers

"Thanks to the power of our inner critics, most of us have a very poor opinion of ourselves. Yet self- contempt merely keeps us miserable and stuck in our mediocrity.

If we were to make only one change to transform the quality of our lives, we might try sending a little love our own way."

-- John Robson
