The Formula for Failure and Success

Weekly installment from Jim Rohn always empowers someone.  Expect more out of your life!


upstream battle won

Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. We do not fail overnight. Failure is the inevitable result of an accumulation of poor thinking and poor choices. To put it more simply, failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day.

Now why would someone make an error in judgment and then be so foolish as to repeat it every day? The answer is because he or she does not think that it matters.

On their own, our daily acts do not seem that important. A minor oversight, a poor decision, or a wasted hour generally doesn’t result in an instant and measurable impact. More often than not,
we escape any immediate consequences of our deeds…

Reaping a Multiple Reward

Bird Pepper

by Jim Rohn

For every disciplined effort, there are multiple rewards. That’s one of life’s great arrangements. In fact, it’s an extension of the biblical law that says that if you sow well, you will reap well.

Here’s a unique part of the Law of Sowing and Reaping. Not only does it suggest that we’ll all reap what we’ve sown, it also suggests that we’ll reap much more. Life is full of laws that both govern and explain behaviors, but this may well be the major law we need to understand: For every disciplined effort, there are multiple rewards.

What a concept! If you render unique service, your reward will be multiplied. If you’re fair and honest and patient with others, your reward will be multiplied. If you give more than you expect to receive, your reward is more than you expect. But remember…

Conquer Fear

The Power of Conquering Fear – By Myles W. Miller

“You must do the thing that you fear until the fear of that thing becomes no more.”  – Brian Tracy

One day, not too long ago, I was in the middle of a 5 day fast. I was looking for spiritual answers to some situations that I was facing. On the third day, I got hit with the truth:  my attention that my life and motives had been based on fear.

I had feared that people would not love me if I stood up for myself. I had feared that people would not understand me when I needed them to. I had feared that failure would always overtake my efforts in life no matter how well I performed. Ultimately, I feared being a complete and total failure in life.

It was very shocking for me to come to this realization. I had always felt that I had a natural zest for life, but there was always a “glass ceiling” that I just could not seem to break through. I could always “see” what I could be, but actually becoming that person often eluded me.

Fear is a great paralyzer. It lulls one into believing that gloom and doom are always “inevitable.” Fear causes great people to accept mediocrity. It also causes death and destruction to lives and dreams of most people. Where there is overwhelming procrastination, there is fear.

Where there is great anger, there is fear. Where there is extreme hatred, there is fear. Where there is complacency, there is fear. Where there was failure, ultimately, fear was there.

That brought me back to something else that I never consciously realized; that fear is a mind-set. Thus, anything that is set in your mind got there from a thought or set of thoughts. However, thoughts can be corrected by consciously choosing to think better thoughts. If you constantly fear that you are going to be “sick,” you are going to be “sick.” So to correct your “sickness” before it happens, start consciously choosing “healthy” thoughts.

This ideology holds true in most walks of life. Henry Ford, world-renowned industrialist and automotive pioneer, once stated, “Whether you think that you can or you can’t, you’re right.” Ford often successfully overcame fear. You see, he only had a sixth grade education.

By most standards, he would have been considered illiterate and ignorant. Mr. Ford was so “ignorant,” that he committed himself to the “outrageous” dream of building automobiles with little formal education. Ford was so “ignorant,” that he pioneered the “V” shaped engine, something that his “smart” engineers said “couldn’t” be done. In essence, Ford was so “ignorant,” until he forgot to “fear” things that most people with his set of “limitations” were supposed to.

I’m pretty sure that there is somebody out there right now driving their family vehicle to a job that is murdering their dreams of greatness. These people are probably 1000 times “smarter” than Henry Ford was. So “smart” that they think “security” is going to come by working for someone else the rest of their lives. I sincerely believe and teach people to be bold in their journey through life. Boldness breaks the bondage of fear. Boldness is defined as the willingness to face risk fearlessly.

What do you have dreams of doing or being? What is holding you back? For the first question, I know some people will answer things becoming a singer, writing a book, starting a new business, buying a new car, and etc. However, for the second question, I know that tons of fear-based excuses will come up.

Things like, “I’m too old,” “I’m too young,” “I’m a woman,” “I’m Black,” “I don’t have a lot of money,” and the like. In this article, I have been spiritually led to tell you the truth. Your boldness will lead you to the result of question one, and defeat the untruths of question two. World-renowned writer, speaker, and pastor, Joyce Meyer, describes fear as “False Evidence Appearing Real.”

The truth of the matter is that success knows no such boundaries as race, sex, age, gender, creed, or religious preference. Thus there is no reason for fear to keep you in bondage anymore. The following are five steps to unleashing your power over F.E.A.R.

5 Steps to Unleashing Your Power Over Fear

  1. Become “ignorant” to fear
  2. Don’t let fear have time to think
  3. Always speak faith and belief
  4. Create and maintain a positive outlook of yourself
  5. Continue to execute the thing(s) that you fear until fear disappears

Become “ignorant” to fear:

Fear appears in many different forms. It can come from negative self (i.e. “I can’t do this,” “I’m not good at this,” etc.). It can come from negative media forecasts (i.e. bad predictions of the economy, bad weather reports, reports of murder, etc.). Remember the story of Henry Ford? He could have been nothing in this lifetime because of what he could not do, but his fears took a back seat to his ability to ignore any ideas that were not in congruence with his dream. Therefore, you must mute the voice of fear by limiting (or completely eliminating) your contact with fear-causing entities.

Don’t let fear have time to think:

Thoughts are powerful. A single thought can be responsible for life or death in this world. And anything that you think about long enough will find its way into the physical realm. Therefore, if you were to spend time thinking about the things that you want out of life (I mean conscious concentrate), you begin to see them. Conversely, the same is true for the things that you don’t want in life. Commit your time to faith and believing, not fear and doubt.

Always speak faith and belief:

To frame your own world free of debilitating fear, always think, act, and speak positively in faith and belief. Be bold and say things as you want them to be in your life. If it is a new house you want, say it! If it is a new car you want, say it! If it is a successful family life you want, say it! If it is a better job that you want, say it!

Create and maintain a positive outlook of yourself:

I have a motto that goes like this: “If I know who and what I am, no one can tell me who and what I am not!” No matter what the world has decided to think about me, I have decided to think great thoughts about myself. Therefore, I am free of world’s often limiting belief system. I don’t worry about things like weather reports, poor economic forecasts, what celebrity just went to jail, and who does not believe in my dreams, because if God is for me, who or what can be against me (Romans 8:31)? Decide who and what you are right now and do not be moved negativity.

Continue to execute the thing(s) that you fear until fear disappears:

Success is active. Action dispels fear. If you sit still, fear has the time to paralyze your abilities and efforts, ultimately causing you to fail. Continue to move toward your goals with great diligence and great courage!

Good luck and may success embrace you!

Your Forces and How to Use Them

Joey Coulter promised to   win; and WIN he did

Promise yourself to be so strong
that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best
and expect only the best.

To be enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to
greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger,
too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

You want freedom, then forgive

Forgiveness by Denise Marek.

Posted: 12 Aug 2010 04:59 AM PDT

Forgiveness is one of the very best gifts you can give to yourself.

What is forgiveness? It’s understanding that you cannot go back and change the past and it’s accepting that all your experiences—no matter how traumatic, painful, or unhappy they may have been—are simply lessons from which to learn. Whether emotional, physical, or psychological, negative or positive, those lessons were meant to teach you how to be who you are in this moment—a wiser, more empowered you. You need to understand and accept that today you’re the person you are because of what you’ve learned. Once you accept those lessons—and truly learn from them—the negatives of yesterday will never affect you again. You won’t carry doubt, fear, and guilt. Instead you’ll be free. That freedom comes from forgiveness.

Who is it that you need to forgive? Everyone. You need to forgive yourself for everything it is that you believe you’ve done wrong, for example, not giving love when someone needed it, not being supportive, creating negative energy in another person’s life or in your own, or not being honorable or respectable. You also need to forgive others—all those of whom you’ve thought negatively because of something they said or did. Forgive the neighbor who lied to you, the parents who scolded you, the kid who bullied you in school, the boss who fired you, the spouse who hurt you, and the friend who betrayed you. But how? How do you forgive and stop carrying the negatives of the past around with you?

First, look at the individual you’re forgiving (whether it’s yourself or another) in a different way—step back and put the positive first. In my situation, I had to stop seeing that first friend as nasty and see that perhaps she did what she did out of fear. Maybe she was afraid that if I had a boyfriend, she would be alone, so she preemptively swooped in to protect herself. Or it could be that she was repeating a pattern taught to her by her mother—who, in an effort to control my friend would threaten to take away her special things and give them to me if she wasn’t good!  Maybe my friend was trying to control me in the same way—by taking away the things I liked.

Next, use that lesson to learn something positive about yourself as you move forward. Ask yourself: What lesson have I learned about myself and with what lesson am I moving forward? For me, this experience taught me the importance of being a trustworthy friend and today that’s what I strive to be. It also gave me the opportunity to see firsthand how holding on to anger, upset, and negative feelings keeps you stuck in the past and how forgiveness can free you. Through the experience I learned to forgive and I moved forward. These are some pretty positive lessons for which I’m very thankful.

In forgiving others, it’s important to realize that you’re not condoning poor behavior. You simply understand you can’t change what’s happened, and you accept there were lessons for you to learn in those experiences. You don’t have to necessarily like how you’ve learned those lessons, but you can come to a place where you’re grateful because you’re stronger. Those situations made you tougher, more aware, more conscious, and more capable. You can treasure the fact that you’ve learned so much.

Take all your experiences and become empowered by them. You can’t change them, but you can discover something of value in them. When you do, you’ll be able to extend forgiveness to yourself and others. You won’t carry the barriers and the weights of the past—you’ll be free. You’ll be free to grow into the best person you can be and to create the best life for yourself.

Begin today by forgiving for good.

Giving Starts the Receiving Process

Giving Starts the Receiving Process
by Darren Hardy

That is a quote from my mentor Jim Rohn. When I first heard Jim say this, I thought he meant giving created indebtedness on the part of the receiver—that you gave so you could get back. But I had it all wrong. Jim taught me that the real gift—the lasting benefit of giving—is what the act itself does for you. In essence, giving to others is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

Giving feels good, but there’s more to it than that. Helping others incites physical and emotional responses within us. When we direct our energy and focus on meeting others’ needs, we push aside our brooding and negative emotions, especially those that contribute to stress-induced psychological and physical illnesses. Studies reveal that when we help others, we release extra amounts of endorphins into our system, and we get what researchers call a “helper’s high.”

Weekend Without Oil To Help Teens Reduce Consumption

by Chris Tackett, Fayetteville, Arkansas on 08. 5.10

Take Action

We’ve been focused on educating people about reducing their oil consumption (see our Minus Oil series), so when we heard from DoSomething about their Weekend Without Oil it was as if the idea had been plucked straight from our heads. With a goal of getting teens to reduce their oil consumption, the Weekend Without Oil will be held August 21 & 22nd, so mark your calendar!

Find out more about the Weekend Without Oil and how you can participate below.

About The Weekend Without Oil
The Weekend Without Oil aims to help teens (and anyone willing to participate) recognize the many ways that their day-to-day activities increase oil consumption and provide ideas for how to reduce it. Participants are given a list of personal actions they can take and are asked to make a pledge to participate in the weekend-long event. While the activities are personal, by taking the pledge to participate on the same weekend as many others, the participants are able to see what their small personal actions can lead to on a larger scale.

Supporters of the event include Do Something,, My Gulf Action,,  @BPglobalPR, AOL Lifestream and TreeHugger.

Weekend Without Oil Action Items
The Weekend Without Oil is targeted to teens, so the list of action items may not sound relevant to all readers, but I think there are enough substantial actions to make this list a nice starting point for anyone wishing to reduce their consumption of oil. Some are about specific things to do that weekend, but all can be turned into regular habits for added benefit. On the Weekend Without Oil page, each action item is listed along with more info on why it is a good idea, so be sure to visit their page for the full list. Here is a shortened version of the list:

1. Walk or ride your bike.
2. Enjoy the outdoors.
3. Use reusable bags.
4. Eat less meat.
5. Don’t buy new make-up that weekend
6. Drink tap water:
7. Don’t always buy the newest gadget.
8. Don’t buy new DVDs or CDs.
9. Skip buying new clothes that weekend
10. Head to your local library or read online.


Those invisible EMFs more visible more proof

Many of us have heard about the most recent Solar Flairs and all I have read is great indication the electromagnetic field of the earth 8interacting with these flairs will display spectacular light shows.

A friend in Key Largo told me yesterday they are able to see the borealis down there; so you don’t have to live in Alaska to benefit.  Check it out with your local meteorologist.

It is reported these Solar Flairs will not hurt humans; we in the EMF world will watch and learn.

Google Solar Flairs for the most recent updates and if you are in a good viewing area; step outside this evening and begin believing in EMF and understanding the whole story.

The Day Your Life Will Change for Good!

In today’s Jim Rohn Newsletter was a very appropriate article written by Chris Widener, given the circumstances the past couple days in the world of a very dear friend.  Hoping it touches other lives out there… CSea


Many people long for a better life. In fact, I think it is innate to humans to desire a better life.

Wherever we are, we look beyond and dream of a better place. That is good, and that is not so good. It is good because the dream is alive and we can see, even if it is far off, a better situation for us, our families and our businesses and communities.

So why is it not good? It is not good because it is not yet a reality!

A dream is no good if it is only a dream. Sure a dream can make you feel good, but long term, if you don’t pursue it…

TD4 will become Colin nonthreatening

As of today August 2, 2010 projections (which will likely change) appear relatively non-threatening to the southeastern US seaboard and Gulf oil spill.  The Northeast Coast and the Islands need to keep vigilance.

Regardless of projections everyone on the eastern seaboard should already be ‘prepared‘.  We have posted “preparedness and recovery” guides previously.  If you need a reminder, request in Comments.
