So many downsides until this happens

In my reading time yesterday I came across a quote I want to share with you.

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation.

There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: 'Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!"

You need to go on a diet

Back in 2009, I went on a diet. This was not your typical food diet.

I had become over stimulated by news and information.

I had the news on in the background when I got up in the morning. I'd catch up on it in the afternoon. I'd listen to it in the car in the form of talk radio. I'd balance that at night with comedy news like the Daily Show. I had friends that worked on political campaigns and we'd discuss the issues at coffee houses.

The most powerful word in business…

When I had decided absolutely to start a freedom business a strange thing happened.

I learned about the Value Cycle, (entire video discussing what it is and how to use it is in the Freedom Club), and it lit my mind on fire!

I went from having NO ideas on what niche to go into or products or anything specific to 1000's of ideas.

Carpe Punctum for life!

Did you ever see the movie, Dead Poets Society?

It's the one with the late Robin Williams who's a teacher at a fancy-smancy boys prep-academy.

There's a scene where here he brings all the young men he's teaching into the main hall of the academy. The hall where all the trophies and ribbons and pictures of students from the past doing great things.

WARNING: You will fail unless you take this simple advice.

I recently got an email that I'm going to share with you. I think a lot of people feel this way and I want to comment on it.

Here is the email and my comments will follow.
