It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. St. Matthew 4: 4


You will never get any further in life than the ideas in your mind. It is important to feed your mind only right ideas.

There’s a story I like to tell of a hot dog vendor who sold very fine hot dogs by the side of the road. His business was booming, people loved his hot dogs, and they bought more and more.

The man believed in his business and the need for someone to do what he was doing. This man was so busy advertising and selling his hot dogs and making lots of money that he didn’t even have time to read the newspaper or listen to the radio.

Consequently, he never heard a word about a predicted recession or the need to cut back to save the economy. As long as he continued to offer his delicious hot dogs, his customers bought them. He kept selling, and they kept buying.

Then one day his well-educated son TOLD him that an economic recession was coming. His son TOLD him that people wouldn’t have enough money to buy his hot dogs. And the hot dog vendor BELIEVED this, so he quit advertising. He quit trying to sell his tasty hot dogs. He started ordering less. He even went so far as to take down the sign at his roadside stand. And sure enough, people stopped coming to him. People stopped buying his hot dogs, and he went broke. Then he thought to himself, “How smart my son is, predicting this.”


This story give us an idea of how powerful your mind is. If you start believing something, it will happen. Everything in life comes from the ideas in your mind.

Instead of fighting what you HATE, give your attention to what you LOVE.

REPEAT AFTER ME: I AM walking into the GREATEST year of my LIFE.
