MKE- Week 22 A “Master Mind”, a Gift to Success


Everything that an individual creates or acquires, first begins with a thought.  From this thought grows a desire and this desire ends in the workshop of imagination, where plans for development  are created, evolve, and organized. In this blog let’s uncover the skill needed to stimulate your imagination, desire, and dreams, along with awaking new ideas for accountability and growth. Let’s examine this skill in the light of what it is, how it works, and seven reasons why it might work for you or your business.

The skill that this blog is dedicated to is called “Master Mind”, which was developed about seventy-five years ago by Napoleon Hill.

“Master Mind” is a skill that coincides with brain storming ideas; it’s a conference technique of solving specific problems, amassing information, stimulating creative thinking, developing new ideas, etc., by spontaneous participation in discussion.

How does this technique work?  It basically involves connecting yourself with a group of people who are committed to create and help to carry out your Definite Major Purpose (DMP- your life’s goals & desires) or plans for the accumulation of wealth.  Once you’ve established the people needed in your Master Mind Alliance, which is between four to six people, the next decision is to determine what benefits you have to offer the individual members of your group in return for their cooperation.  For after all, no one works indefinitely without some form of compensation, although this might not be in the form of money.  Now the next step is to figure out how often the alliance should meet to “Master Mind”?  Usually the group should meet a minimum of at least twice a week, and more if possible, until you’ve jointly perfected the necessary plan for the accumulation of revenue or the process in which your DMP shall be manifested.  The last important procedure in the “Master Mind” group is maintaining perfect harmony.  You need every member carrying out their part to the letter, otherwise your success may meet with failure.  Each member must carry out a set of instructions to do for the week such as: complete their “Oats” (which is a plan of action for each day scheduled on a calendar), read books like (Influencer or the Speed of Trust), and actualize ideas that could help implement your DMP.  The “Master Mind” principle cannot be manifested where perfect harmony doesn’t prevail.  You might have to ask one to leave if a person is causing friction and is failing to do his or her part.

Now let’s view the seven reasons why the “Master Mind” dogma might work for you and your business according to an article I read by Stephanie Burn.  The first reason she mentions that “Master Mind” is important is because you’ll be a part of an exclusive community.  Joining the Master Mind alliance is usually done by being invited by members or going through an application process.   The other members need you as much as you need them and that is why checking out experience and knowledge is crucial to all members in your Master Mind group.  The second reason she brings out is for advisement.  The members in the group help advise the group members on their business concerns, research resources, and helps keep everyone accountable in fulfilling your DMP.  The third reason is for collaboration, which is like having a dictionary full of creative ideas.  This approach helps to achieve more positive energy, in order to get more tasks accomplished.  You may discover another member in the alliance that is a perfect fit to work on another project with you.  The fourth reason to Master Mind is it helps to extend your network rapidly.  You instantly add to your network and typically gain the networks of those in the group with you.  The fifth reason is that you’re able to gain new learning expertise.  Every member is unique in skills, abilities, experiences, and connections.  By interacting and sharing your challenges it helps others to Master Mind possible solutions, connections, and procedures.  The sixth reason is for cross-promotion which is finding ways to help each other by utilizing your respective networks.  The last reason to “Master Mind” is because it helps you to think bigger.  It stretches you beyond your boundaries because you are surrounded by amazing people with creative ideas.  Master Minds are incredible and can do wonders for your business along with your personal life. Being able to grow in a group is definitely more effective, and makes your business more enjoyable.

John Rohn once said this quote which is a good summary-“I remember saying to my mentor, ‘If I had more money, I would have a better plan.’ He quickly responded, ‘I would suggest that if you had a better plan, you would have more money’ ”. You see, it’s not the amount that counts; it’s the plan that counts.   Thomas Jefferson put it this way, “If you want something you’ve never had.  you must be willing to do something you’ve never done”.  So be a part of a “Master Mind” alliance and watch your business expand its possibilities, and disclose your future dreams.


MKEWeek22 Inspiration-Important or Not?

Inspiration has a long history and was originally thought of as coming from divine or supernatural forces. In ancient Greece, the Muses were goddesses who inspired the creation of literature and the arts. In this blog let’s look at these three key factors when considering the importance of Inspiration or not: (1) What is inspiration, (2) What are the three main qualities of inspiration, and (3) How can inspiration affect our life?

So, what is inspiration? Inspiration is to become inspired by getting out of the beaten path, out of the rut, contemplating extraordinary results, and confirming that the source of all power is within, which gives us the source of inspiration.  Inspiration is the art of adjusting the individual’s mind to that of the Universal Mind.  Inspiration is the art of receiving and it makes for all that is best in life. Inspiration implies power to understand and apply the creative ideas discovered.  Inspiration is the art of attaching the proper mechanism to the source of all power.  It is the art of becoming a channel for the flow of infinite wisdom and achieving the awareness of Omnipotence.  In order, for this realization and inspiration to occur silence is necessary.  The senses must be stilled, the muscles relaxed, tranquility cultivated, and a readiness to receive the information or inspiration.

Second, through the studies in inspiration that have emerged by Todd M. Thrash & Andrew J. Elliot we’ve been able to determine three main qualities of Inspiration. First, inspiration is evoked spontaneously. For example, inspiration can be an idea that comes from with-in, an inspiring role model, or a divine revelation. Another key quality of inspiration is that it is transcendent of our self-serving concern and limitation. It relates to the drive to master work, but not in a competitive way. Transcendence often involves a moment of clarity and awareness of new possibilities. The moment of clarity is often vivid and can take the form of a grand vision or an awakening of something that an individual has not seen before, even though it was probably always there. Finally, inspiration involves a technique called “Approach Motivation” in which the individual strives to transmit, express, or manifest a new idea or vision.

Third, how can inspiration affect our life? In an article written by Amiee Mueller she has some inspiring insights about this question which I plan to share with you.  She brings out that inspiration reminds us that we all have challenges, and that we can find our way around them or through these obstacles by using inspiration. All it takes is one little spark of inspiration and we can leave our fearful thoughts behind. When we are inspired our spark inside turns into a flame and our lives around us are changed. We suddenly have the courage to step into the unknown and follow our dreams or our hero’s journey.  Inspiration can be found almost anywhere if we are observant. For example, when we walk outdoors to enjoy nature, watching a child at play, mediating on a personal concern, or looking into your loved one’s eyes.  By doing these things it reminds you what an inspiring being you are.  Often inspiration can hit you like a bolt of lightning, electrifying your ideas into action.  Inspiration has the power to change the world.  For with inspiration, whatever we can imagine becomes possible.  Inspiration opens the floodgate to possibility, brings a smile to our face, and adds a spring to your walk. By using inspiration each day in your life, you will begin to see change not only in yourself but in others as well. Remember, it’s inspiration that turns the ordinary into extraordinary, fear into hope, and darkness into light. Inspiration reminds us that we are greater than what we acknowledge and are more resilient, and powerful than what we give ourselves credit for. Inspiration helps you see who you really are, it helps you get to your destination, and it helps you fulfill your heart’s desires.

Now it is up to you to decide. Is Inspiration important or is it just a part of a long history?



MKE WEEK 21 The Amazing Law of Vibration

According to Albert Einstein, “Everything in life is vibration”. In this blog let’s look at what the Law of Vibration is, how you use Vibration, what is the rate of Vibration, what is the importance of Vibration, and how to raise your Vibrational level.

The Law of Vibration states that everything in the Universe moves and vibrates—everything is vibrating at one speed or another and so are you. Nothing is at rest. However, your frequency is different from other things in the Universe and that’s why it seems like you are separated from what you see around you, such as people, animals, plants, tree, etc. Professor John Hagetino stated that we are not separated; we are living in an ocean of energy connected at the lowest level, which he calls “The Unified Field” Everything has its own vibrational frequency—the table, the car, the picture frame, the rock, even our thoughts, and feelings. It is all governed by the Law of Vibration.

The next notion is how to use the Law of Vibration. It is through the Law of Vibration that the mind exercises control over the body. For example, someone calls you, in regards, to a job interview and offers you the job. Your eyes fill up with tears of happiness and you jump for joy. Any given vibration immediately modifies every atom in the body, every cell is affected, and an entire chemical change occurs through the cells. We are all using vibration every minute even though we are using it unconsciously, which can produce undesirable results. Thus, it’s important to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results. This should not be problematic because we’ve all had experiences that produce pleasant vibration in the body, and we also are aware of the causes that produce unpleasant and disagreeable sensations. For example, when our thoughts have been uplifted, progressive, constructive, courageous, noble, kind, or in any other way desirable, we have set in motion vibration which brought about positive results. When our thoughts have been filled with envy, hatred, jealousy, or other forms of discord our vibration was set in motion which brought about negative results. The Law of Vibration can also be used in the way to health. It is brought into operation by the mind, the “world with-in”. If everything is in harmony, including your creative energies, your cell patterns, and the quality of your thoughts, then when you wish the body to manifest health, strength and vitality it will materialize, just as long as this is your predominant thought.

The process of how fast or slow energy contracts back toward its center point of source field is the vibration rate. Examples of rate of vibration would include: every element of the human body, mental action, and the creating of brain cells. The rate of vibration is governed by the character of brain cells. The rate of vibration also has an effect on the panorama of nature both visible and invisible. By simply changing the rate of vibration you change the nature, quality, and form of things. Thought is a vibration and produces any condition which we desire to manifest in our bodies such as maintaining health.

The last concept is how to raise your vibration level. I gleaned key ideas about this from an article written by Amy Crawford. The first way to raise your vibration is by becoming conscious of your thoughts. Everything you think, say, or feel becomes your reality. When you change your thoughts to positive thinking your reality will become more positive and it will help to raise your vibration level. The second way is to find something beautiful and appreciate it. Stop rushing around and take the time to be grateful for your surroundings. The third way is to be conscious of the foods you eat. Some food vibrates at high frequencies and some lower. For example, broccoli & blueberries have high vibrations, whereas, Big Macs don’t vibrate at all. If you are consuming foods covered in chemicals & pesticides, or food found within plastic packaging, it will leave your vibrating level lower. On the other hand, consume good quality organic produce, food as nature intended it, and feel the high vibrations disseminate throughout your body. Pay attention how eating certain foods make your body feel. The forth way is drink water and make sure to drink plenty of filtered water to assist your body to flush out toxicity day to day. Toxicity has a marked impact on our vibration, so it’s important to do what we can to reduce its impact within & around us. The fifth way is mediate. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and breath in & out. Meditation helps to calm your spirit down and puts you in a peaceful state of mind. Just 15 minutes daily can help to improve your level of vibration. The sixth way is to be grateful. Making a gratitude list shifts your vibrations from focusing on what you don’t have to what is already abundant in your life. The seventh way is to practice acts of kindness. Giving to someone else without expecting anything in return shifts your thinking from “I don’t have enough” or “Woe is me”, to “I have more than enough to give to others”. Abundance is a high vibration. The eighth way is get your blood pumping. Vibration requires movement, the more you move the better your vibrations move. So, get active- dance a little. The more happier you are, the more you draw happy experiences to yourself, which raises your level of vibration.

Hopefully you’ve opened your eyes to the amazing Law of Vibration and will begin to experience it more consciously and produce only desirable results. As Abraham Hicks expressed it this way, “What you think about activates a vibration within you” or another quote, “Everything is vibrational, your thoughts, your ideas, your every being. You will draw to you whatever vibration matches yours, wanted or unwanted”. (Anonymous) So implement this amazing Law of Vibration and enjoy the new you.



MKE Week 20 Freedom from Our Old Blueprint

Marcus Garvey stated a great quote which says, “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds”. In this blog let’s look at how we can become free from our mental slavery and the bondage of our old blueprint. In the Master Keys, lesson 20 shares four concepts that over time will help atrophy the old blueprint and with practice can create a new one. These four concepts include: (1) Be aware of Consciousness of Power, (2) The importance of “Large Thoughts”, (3) Mental Attitude, and (4) Mind Forces that shapes and imparts freedom from the old blueprint.

First, be aware of the Consciousness of Power or the secret power within you that is activated on mental actions. The more conscious we become of our unity with the source of all power, the greater will be our power to control and master every condition including our blueprint. The Universal Mind is a component of the Consciousness of Power. It is the live wire that carries power sufficient to meet every situation, which may arise in the life of every individual. The Universal Mind is the Divine Mind. It makes no exception, it plays no favorites, it doesn’t act through sheer caprice or from anger, jealousy, or wrath. It can’t be flattered, cajoled or moved by sympathy. Nor does the Universal Mind petition to supply more with some need just because the individual thinks it is necessary for happiness or even for existence. The Universal Mind makes no exceptions to favor any individual. The Universal Mind is static or potential energy. It can manifest only through the individual and the individual can manifest only through the Universal. They are one. The Universal Mind is the life principle of every atom which is in existence. Every atom is striving to manifest more life, all are intelligent, and all are seeking to carry out the purpose for which they were created. The Universal Mind is constantly seeking a channel whereby it can find the greatest activity, where it can do the most good and where it can be the greatest service to mankind. Another part of the Consciousness of Power is the World Within. The World Within has inexhaustible power, and once we become conscious of this we’re able to develop & manifest the greater possibilities. The World Within is governed by mind and is capable of finding the solution for every problem, the cause for every effect, find infinite wisdom, infinite power, and the infinite supply of all that is necessary. The World Within includes harmony, which is reflected in the world without by harmonious conditions, agreeable surroundings, and the best of everything. The harmony found in the World Within is the foundation of health, all greatness, all power, all attainment, all achievement, and all success. It also can help to determined how any experience is to affect us.

Second, the Importance of “Large Thoughts”. “Large Thoughts” have a tendency to eliminate all smaller thoughts. This is why it is important to hold on to large thoughts, which can counteract and destroy all small or undesirable tendencies. This will remove petty & annoying obstacles from your path. You also become aware of a larger world of thought, thereby increasing your personal world. The creative energies of the mind find no more difficulty in handling large thoughts or situations, than small ones. Mind is just as much present in the infinitely large as in the infinite small.

Third, the Mental Attitude is our personality and is composed of the thoughts which we have been creating in our own mind, and the actions in our old blueprint. If we wish a change in conditions or a new blueprint all that is necessary is to change our thought. This will change our personality, which in turn changes the person, things, and conditions or experiences with which we meet in life. It is no easy matter to change the Mental Attitude, but by persistent effort it may be accomplished. The Mental Attitude is patterned after the mental pictures which have been photograph on the brain. If you don’t like the pictures, destroy the negatives, and create new pictures, which is the art of visualization. As soon as you’ve done this, you begin to attract new things and the new things will correspond to the new pictures. Continue to hold the pictures in your mind until results are obtained. Using the Mental Diet, you will begin to train your mind to observe any negative behavior or words. By using the diet pill, which is a positive affirmation or a good memory or picture within 7 seconds after you slipped verbally then you don’t have to start all over but can continue. If you fail to be that quick, then you’ll have to start the Mental Diet over for 7 days.

Fourth, is the Mind Forces that operates the method in which all our habits are formed. We do a thing, then do it again, and repeat it again until it becomes easier and perhaps automatic. The same process is applied in breaking bad habits. We stop doing a thing, and then avoid it repetitively until we are entirely free from it.

By expanding these concepts and putting them into actions, we can chip away the cement that hides our true self. We can be emancipated from our bondage of mental slavery and our blueprint. We can choose to get out of our comfort zone, to accept the call, and to move forward to finish our hero’s journey. Are you with me? Let’s go!



MKE Week 19 The Powerful Documentary called “I AM”


“I Am” is an extraordinary documentary about Tom Shadyac and his near-death experience. In this blog we’ll look at some events before the accident, after the accident, and his spiritual quest which involved finding the answers to these two questions: “What’s wrong with the world and what can we do about it”.

A quick background of Tom Shadyac before the accident. He was brought up in an above average home, but he didn’t have everything he wanted. When he started being successful as a film director his life changed immediately his dwelling changed into a beautifully-styled house with furniture that accentuated the house. He had been taught that once you have the luxuries of life you would experience real happiness. But as he looked at all he had (two beautiful houses with furniture to match), he still felt unsatisfied and that happiness had to be something else. He went out to the country and took off riding his bike while going down a hill on a road he hit a pothole, his bike disintegrated, and he went flying, hitting the dirt road forcefully. He had a very severe concussion, a broken arm, and lacerations. He realized at that moment he might have life all wrong. His concussion left him being sensitive to light, and subject to terrible headaches, which no treatment he was given seemed to even begin to eliminate the pain he was experiencing daily. He began to acknowledge that death might be his only relief, but the question kept popping in his mind- “What would I tell others?” He decided to isolate himself from the world, slow his pace down, relax, walk along the beach with no people around. Strangely enough in about six months his pain gradually left him. He began to think clearly and see his purpose. He decided to travel the world with a four- member camera crew with the purpose of answering these two key questions: “What’s wrong with world and what can we do about it?” He interviewed the most intelligent people that he was aware of, like Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Noam Chomsky, and Howard Zinn. Here are, just a few ideas that came out of the various interviews. The world is being run by machines. The world is being fashioned around the philosophy of being sufficient—being adequate for a set purpose. Humans are wired to be competitive. (It is like the attitude, anything you can do I can do better). The cultures around the world delineated the highest value as cooperation and competition is a low value. Being cooperative is in our DNA. Humans don’t have the natural weaponry as animals do to protect each other, but we have cooperativeness. (We have to depend on others to exist). Animals have democracy. For example, when a herd of deer graze in an area long enough or when it’s time to get water, a few leaders move out first then the rest follows. We are hardwired with a compassion for helping others and that is why we feel their pain when someone gets hurt. We are born to respect each other and connect with endearment with our communities. Negative behavior causes the mind to think wildly, not rationally and makes your brain become nonproductive. For example, when someone flips you off on the freeway; it causes you to lose focus and to instantly stir up your anger. Thus, we see how easy people are driven by stimulus. Money doesn’t buy happiness. Neither does materialism bring you the way to happiness. But people continue to try.

Tom had it all, but something was lacking. Plato said, “All wars deal with the comfort of the body”. The monster we have is the economy, however, the market isn’t caused by the force of nature, society has created it along with a gap between the rich and the poor. Our thinking process has affected the world which puts limits on our growth. Nothing is separate, everything is connected. What we do at an individual level really does affect the global experience. Everything we do affects the species.

The second part of his question was, “What can we do to help the world be better?” First, we need to celebrate life, appreciate the air we breathe, all the blessings we’ve been given, the wonderful world around us, and understand it is a unique miracle. Second, we need to help others. We need to believe that the hungry and homeless people have an affect on us and our world. Third, we need to admit that perhaps we’ve looked at the world wrongly. We need to change how we think, starting with our consciousness. “It’s not what I get out of a task, but what can I give to others”. (This is what President Kennedy stated so clearly in his inaugural speech, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather ask what you can do for your country”.) Change happens because you are concerned. It is about all of us being passionate about making a better planet. We need to change our attitudes about war being part of nature or a human need. Violence is not the only way. Many famous men like Gandhi, Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr all felt that love was a force that could have a powerful impact on people’s lives. You have the power to liberate their damaged soul of hate by loving people. Fourth, usually critical thinking followed by action can help others problem-solve the crucial problems that our world seems to face daily. We need to figure out where our talents fit with improving the world. Changes come from millions of tiny acts of kindness.

You can help! If you don’t do anything, then no one will, and changes won’t happen. Use the “Power of 1”, everyone has it. It is possible to change. Be the change you want to be. We are all one and we do have the power to change the world. Love is in our DNA. Love is all you need to start.       What is right with the world?    I am.


MKE Week 18 The Importance of Intentions in Your Thought Process

“Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts.” (Soren Kierkegaard). So, let’s dive into the topic of Intention: first, what is Intention, second, how the Intention governs the attention, third, why are Intentions important, fourth, the results of Intention, and fifth, how to create Intentions.

The Free defines intention as a course action that one intends to follow, an aim that guides action, an objective. defines intention as a determination to act in a certain way.

In the article “The What & Why Intentions are important” by JoAnn Downey, she brings about several important points that I would like to share in this blog since her feelings & my feelings coincide with this topic. She brings out that when your relationships are good then your intentions will be clear, positive statements of an outcome you want to experience. Therefore, an intention is a goal or a vision that guides your activities, thoughts, attitudes, and choices. Your intentions influence your actual experiences. You can set an intention in any area of your life such as, physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. However, intentions start with mental pictures of your goal, which requires focus, action, and positive energy to manifest.

Second, the intention governs the attention by a power that comes through tranquility and dignified calmness. It is by concentration that deep thoughts, wise speech, and all forces of high potentiality are accomplished. Thus, by the intention directing the attention we see the interest compound. The greater the interest the more action & reaction evolves to arouse more interest, which enables you to cultivate the power of attention.

Third, why are intentions important? Intentions provide a framework for you to set priorities, use your time wisely, and align yourself with resources needed to manifest your goals. The process of setting & working towards your intentions declares to yourself, others, and the universe that you are serious about your dreams and goals. Having a strong, positive, energized intention helps to repel anything that isn’t aligned with your goals. On the other hand, it also attracts the essence of the goals to make them more productive and stable.

Fourth, the results of the intentions in your thought process includes thoughts which precede every action and actions determine results. Therefore, it is crucial that you choose your thoughts and intentions carefully. When you set a clear and personally compelling intention you will tend to act in ways, respond to situations, create supportive opportunities, and make choices in harmony with your intention. Setting clear intentions also helps you to map out your journey in a more flawless method and be more balanced if difficulties arise. Difficulties do emerge, but good problem-solving skills and honest intentions will guide you through the challenges. Setting intentions is key to manifesting personal & professional goals, along with seeing your dreams fulfilled.

Fifth, how to create an intention is an interesting question. Intentions are what you want to manifest or create. Intentions do not try to manipulate or control others or their behavior. Your intention is your call to action. A meaningful intention is sincere and promotes well-being. It represents the end result of what you want to achieve today and what your future will look like. It’s not a “to do” list, but an intention is complete: it directs your choices and your energy. You should feel that your intention is achievable and believable. Don’t let your ego get in the way or limit yourself to what you can receive instead of being confident in taking a risk. An intention needs to be stated in a positive way: or what you want instead of what you don’t want. It is a positive mental image of what you want to manifest. Intentions include how you want to receive the manifestation. It also includes how you will be with yourself, others, and the universe. Intentions must include empowering words, not words such as “always” and “never” because these words project unrealism and have a negative tone to them. Intentions need to be clear and concise. You will know you have a perfect intention when it feels uplifting, freeing, joyful, and peaceful. Intentions can be both personal and professional ambitions.

Intentions are goals or visions that guide your activities, thoughts, attitudes and choices. Your intentions influence your actual experiences. As Bryant McGill puts it, “Every journey begins with the first step of articulating the intention, and then becoming the intention.” Akiroq Brost expresses intention like this, “Focus your attention with your intention. Don’t lose yourself in your circumstances or emotions. Remember the why. Base your actions on intention. Where is it you want to go? What is it you want to achieve? Do your actions reflect your intentions?”
Now take your intentions, use them, to make your journey a real reality.

MKE Week 17 HJ – What are the Characteristics Required to Create Wealth?

Let’s look at this question from the following angles: (1) a clear definition of wealth, (2) the exchange value which is the predominant characteristic of wealth, (3) an ideal that gives you passion and a definite fixed purpose, and (4) how prosperity comes when you have an abundance of five importance things.

What is the most accepted definition of wealth? According to the Master Keys wealth consists of all useful and agreeable things which possess exchange value; another definition of wealth is a great quantity or store of money, valuable possessions, property, or other riches; prosperity; affluence; a state of being rich or a person of wealth.

Second, the true value of wealth consists not in its utility but in its exchange value. The exchange value makes it a medium for securing the things of real value whereby our ideals may be realized. For example, giving money to the organization “Samaritan Purse” for medical supplies, rebuilding supplies, and equipment needed for building new homes for earthquake victims or other tragedies. Then volunteering to help them with various projects. You are exchanging the money for supplies, and your time to put into action the plans needed for restoration.

Third, wealth should never be desired as an end, but as a means of accomplishing an end. Wealth is contingent upon a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of riches. Thus, formulating an ideal for which you are willing to strive and by pursuing this ideal, the ways and means shall be provided. There must be a definite fixed purpose and a power to create, which depends entirely on spiritual power.

Fourth, Curry Glassell says that prosperity or wealth comes when you have an abundance of these characteristics. Courage- one of the most important component required to create wealth. For example, if you’ve hit a financially rough time in your life, calling your creditors and discussing with them how much you can afford to pay them back and approximately a time limit that is feasible to do it in definitely takes courage. Vulnerability- being vulnerable and opening yourself up to ask questions, learn from others, and seek support is a vital factor in making healthy, sustainable, financial decisions. If you don’t know something, admit it openly, and look for educational resources to help you get the information you need. Practicality-If you want to create the wealth you deserve, it is vital that you look truthfully and practically at your life. Value yourself enough to say, “No” when a purchase is inappropriate. Examine the why instead of the want before you think about purchasing the item. Responsibility-It is naïve  or misguided to think that someone else is going to be fully invested in your financial well-being. You need to be involved. Make the decision yourself. Empower yourself to make the right riches for you. Gratitude- Being in the place of gratefulness for you, for the things you do have, your friends, family members, and for all your blessings. This attitude liberates you and brings you into a place of peace, stress free, and an openness to new possibilities. Remembering that you can be what you will to be.

Wealth is the power to see a thing in its completeness. It is built upon truth and justice. As Henry David Thoreau expressed it, “Wealth is the ability to fully experience life”. It attracts to yourself the forces needed for the idea and the cooperation of other people. It is using courage, being vulnerable, being practical, conservative, and being responsible. All of these characteristics are like puzzle pieces that must be put together in order for the whole to experience the wealth. Have fun putting together the pieces of your wealth.
