"We share what we know, so that we all may grow."

Craig has been studing the amazing powers of the human mind,
as well as the "secrets of success" for the past two decades. This article (in point form for brevity) is largely based on my notes from a most inspiring and uplifting book by an American by the name, "Skip" Ross from many years ago (however the principles, I believe, are eternal truths). I am sharing this summary, the contents of the Amway man's work in the spirit of encouraging and hopefully even inspiring those people, who really want to reach their full potentials, achieving their dreams in life, whatever they may be "to just GO FOR IT".

Thank you sincerely, "Skip" and Carole for sharing (with humour) your most uplifting words of wisdom in encouraging me to follow my passion and to reach for my personal dreams. I (in turn) am passing them on through the amazing power of the www, as my dream is helping others to realise their personal dreams in life.

Now on the article (at long last!)...

by 'SKIP' ROSS (with Carole C.Carlson)

Skip Ross's Magic Formula for Dynamic Living unfolds the secrets of a life filled with joy and happiness.
10 universal principles that can be the key to unlocking your full potential:

1. GIVING: Give and you receive. Everyone has something to give.

2. EXCLUSION: Get rid of what you don't to make room for what you do want to flow into your life.

3. CREATION: Decide what you want, define it clearly, then write it down.

4. VISUALISATION: Gt a clear mental picture, fill it with emotion and hold onto it.

5. Command. Whatever you speak, that's what is going to happen. Watch out what you say!

6. Action. Do it now.

7. Faith: The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. How does this apply in a practical sense?

8. Enthusiasm. Give everything you've got to everything you do.

9. Self discipline: Do what needs to be done, when it should be done, whether you like it or not.

10. Persistence. "I will...until".

"You are today what you want to be." We use only 10 of his or her potential - the other 90 "might have been". We have been endowed by God with incredible abilities, that if tapped would produce a dynamic style of life.

* You are a genius.

* GIVE and you receive far more.

* Turn your dreams into reality: What is your burning desire?

* Speak your most earnest desires into existence: Verbalise your future, as this releases energy.

* BELIEVE it before you see it.

* Do it UNTIL.

* * * *


1. Understand the source of your self image.

2. Believe your self image can be changed.

3. Decide what kind of person you WANT to be.

4. Write it (this picture) down.

5. Spend time with the person you want to be...the challenge.

"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Whatever a person focuses his thoughts on becomes reality in his life.

"God gives us each day to use as we will. When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever, leaving something in its place we have traded for it. The day can be used for gain, not loss, for good, not evil, for success, not failure. We can waste time worrying about what might happen, or fretting about what did happen. If we want time, we have to make it."

"The measure of our accomplishments in life is not a measure of time that we have to do things; but it's a measure of what we do with the time we have, with the talents we have."

I challenge you to do more than you have ever done before in your life, to be more than you have ever dreamed you could be. To do more than you thought you could do, I'm challenging you to become ALL you were created to be. I know it's possible. I became more than what I was.

Louis Pascal once said: "Our achievements of today are but the sum total of our thoughts of yesterday. You are today where the thoughts of yesterday have brought you and you will be tomorrow, where the thoughts of today take you."

I'm planting a seed like a farmer. You can be a different kind of person, you can be any kind of person you choose to be.
You are responsible for your own attitudes and the kind of life you are living. There are two kinds of people: positive and negative. Always be open - reasons why things change - we tend to seek the comfort of the familiar; therefore change is painful and we tend to resist it.

Your dreams can become reality and you can become all you were created to be.

BE happy and have great fun along the journey

"True success is just being the person you really want to be."

"The task ahead of you can always be overcome by the power within
you...and the often seemingly difficult or even "impassible") path
ahead of you is never as steep with the great spirit that lies
within you."
