We often live in our thoughts and feelings, becoming habituated to negative reactions to external events.

The antidote to this, he recommends, is self-observation, where our attention (rather than being fixed on externals) is directed inwards.Free book, podcast summaries

Rather than reacting by default, we must realize that nothing can control or perturb us without our mental consent.

Never finish a negative statement; reverse it immediately, and wonders will happen in your life


Develop a definite plan for turning over your requests or desires to your subconscious mind.

Imagine the desired end and feel its reality. Follow it through, and you will get definite results.

Your subconscious speaks to you in intuitions, impulses, hunches, intimations, urges, and ideas, and it is always telling you to rise, transcend, grow, advance, adventure, and move forward to greater heights.

The Three Steps to Success

  • Love Your Work: Find out the thing you love to do, then do it.
  • Specialise: Identify a particular branch in that pursuit and learn as much as possible, becoming a leader in the field.
  • Altruism: Do not simply focus on our own accumulation of wealth, but our desire to serve others.


The feeling of wealth produces wealth. Keep this in mind at all times.

The Happiness Choice

Our lives are simply comprised of the cognitive experiences projected in our minds, which subsequently alter our thoughts and beliefs.

Changing our perspective, we change our lives.

When we begin to alter ourselves from the inside, our external environment shifts accordingly.
