What Goes Up Will Come Down

This article is about seeing and being able to use the positive in everything. We will start with exploring the foundation of being able to live a fully positive and successful life, what prevents it, and then proceed to more detail about the method. There is no point in discussing how to be successful until we have found and corrected the reasons we are not. If the engine is at full power but the plane is tightly tied to the ground, it will not move. First, we must remove the ropes. Personal development happens best and easiest when you are happy, at peace and balanced. Certainly traumatic situations often are […]

Work For The Sake Of The Work

In my business career as well as with with my clients and students, I have developed a firm belief that our business success is 10% skill and 90% who we are, the quality of our character. This is exemplified by Richard Branson, a man with little education but now a billionaire with over 200 companies. Clearly he is not a technical master of 200 industries. On the other end of the scale, you may have heard the saying that 10% of the salespeople make 90% of the money. Success is not entirely based on your technical knowledge as much as the clients pleasure of working with someone they know will […]

Changing Words To Change Events Does Not Work

The past years have taken a trend in the concept that by changing the words, we can actually change the situation. This is clearly impossible, but yet it does work. I would like to explore how the impossible works. If there is a problem, no matter what you call it, or even if you ignore it, the objective reality of the situation is the same. If you get in the car and it does not start, calling it a problem or a disaster or a situation or an event will not make the car start. However, many people find that by using the word ‘challenge’ or ‘situation’ instead of ‘problem’ […]

Poor VS Super Rich

For some people, struggle gives purpose, which is why people who are not rich, stay that way because if there is a struggle to survive, they have a purpose in their life. There is nothing worse than a life with no purpose and any purpose will do. Survival is a good purpose, so they maintain their limited financial level to guarantee they have a permanent purpose throughout their life, struggling to survive. For simplicity of the analogies in this article, I will divide everyone into two groups, rich and poor. Poor constitutes anyone who still wants more money. On the other side of the scale, what are the super rich […]

Think and Grow Rich, Why do so Many People Fail and so Few Succeed.

I was first introduced to Think and Grow Rich by my grandfather when I was 12 years old. He gave me his copy, an original printing from India, his home country. I read it and it worked. From literally zero assets and no help whatsoever from my parents, at age 12, I was a millionaire by 25, owning 8 companies and retired at 29. Through my life, I have tried to teach people how to succeed based on my experience and the principles in the book, but with very little success. Over the years, I have found the reasons for the very limited percentage of successful attempts at applying the […]

Do You Really Understand Money?

What is important in getting something is understanding what it is. If you do not understand something, it is impossible to get it other than by luck, and luck is too unreliable to base your life on. You must understand money and what it can give you. Money does not only give you the things you can buy, or the freedom to not need to work, there is something far more subtle than any of these external things. Understanding this subtle essence that money provides will ignite the fire of passion in you towards attaining your goal. Financially poor or average people do not understand what it means to be […]

How to Eliminate Paranoia and Other Fears

Paranoia is fear of being caught. What exactly are you afraid of being caught for? Is it for being pure and perfect? That is doubtful. If a person is paranoid, that means they have something to fear, something they did wrong or are too weak to defend. Paranoia is in the mind, it is a mental fear, that means that there is something in your mind that causes you to fear. Paranoia is an incomprehensible fear. It is something that controls you, yet you do not understand it and are unable to do anything about. It is an unconscious fear to the extent that if you are truly conscious of […]

Uprooting Anger

As an example, when people speak about the roads on a snowy day and say it is a mess, that is a negative attitude. Even if it is true, it may be messy but it is what it is. You will deal with whatever you must to get where you are going and it will be over with. There is nothing that can be done, and being negative does not make it better. I know this is a small thing and you may not have even noticed, but it is significant. Remember that it is the little things we brush off that stay as the sleeping undetected virus that erupts […]

Why Are China Made Products So Poor

This article may sound like a business or cultural discussion, but it leads to a very valuable personal growth lesson at the end. The general consensus is that ‘made in China’ means garbage quality, as if everything made in China is going to be rubbish. In one of my business ventures, my business partner and I have spent years working with several factories in China manufacturing a wide range of products and have come to a clear realization of the truth about the skills and abilities of Chinese workmanship that I would like to share. In my travels around the world, it is clear that each culture has its own […]

Two Key Business Principles For Success

The first key principle in business success is knowing who you are dealing with, and who you are, a smart person or a foolish person. The difference between a smart person and a foolish person is that when a foolish person is foolish, he thinks he is smart, when a smart person is foolish, he knows he is foolish. The next difference is that a foolish person thinking he is smart, has no chance of becoming smart, whereas a smart person knowing he is foolish, can become smarter. By seeing the foolishness, he has a chance of correcting himself so he ceases to be foolish, but that can happen only […]
