*From Digital (Read 15-51)

This book so far, in the first 50 or so pages, is about moving from controlled-brand-centric marketing to consumer-centric marketing.

This guy is also obviously pro-small business and makes a lot of general sense on economy and other things, too.

*From Psycho-C (Read xv-xxv)

If your self-image doesn’t match your positive thinking, the positive thinking technique will not work.  The self-image has to change first.

*From Thinketh (ebook)

    Think good thoughts, and the world will help you and opportunities will come to you.

* From Winning  (Read: 13-17)

    Before you react to a person in a negative fashion, first think about what may have  lead them to have that attitude or behavior.  That way, with understanding, you can respond, not react, to that person.

* From Worrying (Read: 217-221)

    Do the best you can and just let unjust criticism roll off your back.  Anyway, no one else will remember it; they have their own concerns and thoughts occupying their time to worry about yours.

    You attract what you hold onto inside, including your “loves” and your “fears.”

What I learned today (Nov. 1, 2015):

From Thinketh

    Fear and doubt can rob purpose of its energy and drive.

From Everything

    Speak positive things to other people, and you will also get positive things in your life.  What you say to yourself and others matter!
    Failure isn’t fatal or final with the right attitude; learn from it!

From Seven

    That this isn’t the best book for a newbie.  The jargon!  Bulls and bears and EFTs and 12b-1, oh my!

From Undaunted

    That they use the word “stick-to-it-ive-ness” way back when (early 1900s).  And that according to the quoted piece, it comes from doing hard things, all the way through, especially when things go awry.

From Stop Worrying

    Physical relaxation can help you be receptive to mental (worries) relaxation.
    Also, talking things out with a sympathetic ear helps.  (This latter advice seems contrary to some Thinketh views. Hmmm.)
