THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Line of Serenity”

Darriell McKeithen of Florissant, Missouri, says, “I loved this book because it brought back so many wonderful memories of my own childhood which was very similar to the author.  The book was humorous in parts and gave the reader such insight into the lives of a solid African American family who loved and respected each other.  It is timely for such a time as this when so many stereotypes are in print about African American families.  It displayed a hard working set of parents who were determined to raise their children to become solid productive citizens and not rely on welfare programs for their success.  Many other ethnic groups think African Americans are all poor, illiterate, lazy and without fathers or solid male role models.  This book shows without a shadow of doubt how the majority of African American families survived in spite of the climate of racism in the U.S.  It created a warm and proud feeling within me while reading and reminded me to be grateful all over again for the wonderful parents I had. Growing up in the late 40′s and 50′s was truly a wonderful experience and I can only wish that the children of this day and age could be blessed to have the same experiences.  You should encourage Mrs. Fields to write a sequel to this wonderful, uplifting book!”

An Important Message from Les Brown

“The opportunities of man are limited only by his imagination.  But so few have imagination that there are ten thousand fiddlers to one composer.” ~Charles Kettering

Here’s a tip on using your MIND to achieve your goals.

Many of us will admit we’ve not stepped out to take the position as the composer of our lives.  We’re so much more content being lost in the crowd of thousands of imagine-less fiddlers.

If you haven’t been flexing your imagination muscles for a while then this message is really for you.

So much of the successes we experience in life are birthed from the depths of our imaginations.  When we are stuck or feel that we have failed in some way, surely we can trace the reasons back to our unwillingness or inability to use the wonderful gift of the imagination.

Napoleon Hill has told us that all the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination, and that imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.

Fortunately, I learned the power of the imagination long ago.

Working in a local radio station posing as a gofer, I sat patiently waiting for the opportunity to be the city’s next big disc jockey.  I was hungry.

While waiting, I’d imagine daily how the fame and fortune of being a DJ would transform my life but more importantly, I visualized and imagined:

the act of deejaying;
the feel of sitting in the booth;
the smooth contour of the leather chair;
the snug fit of the headphones;
the glow of the ‘on air’ light;
and the flicker of the phone lines as I crooned those now
famous words throughout the airwaves…

My imagination worked well in pursuing a deejaying career.

And now I make sure to fully engage my imagination whenever I explore any new opportunity.

If you are determined to succeed in life, tap into your infinite greatness and use your imagination to reach your goals.

Then, get to work creating your success!
To Your Greatness!

P.S. Don’t forget, YOU control
your destiny…
