    After 17 years, this is my last podcast

    After 17 years, this is my last podcast

    I want you to hear this from me rather than through the grapevine because you are part of my legacy.
    I've always encouraged people, as you know, to ask, what does this make possible? Well, 3 weeks ago, I thought I was an extraordinarily healthy 76-year-old guy. I eat a clean diet. I don't smoke. I don't drink. I exercise 5 times a week.
    On December 7, 2023, the doctors discovered I have very advanced pancreatic cancer that had already spread into my liver and into my bones and told me the prognosis is not good at all.
    Well, this gives me a unique opportunity to live out the principles I have taught all these years. Think about the way that I present life and how to approach things that are unexpected and unwelcome. I tell you to "never let your circumstances determine your attitude." I'm getting an opportunity now to test that out. Did I really believe those things, or was I just giving lip service to some kind of principles that I read in a book somewhere?
    My legacy is firmly embedded in people like you, people that I've had the privilege of interacting with in the past few years. You are my legacy. You are now the torchbearers of these principles that I borrowed from the previous great thinkers.
    Joanne and I have lived the life we loved for 55 years together. And we'd loved having the opportunity to inspire others to do the same. We have lived our dreams. I don't have a a bucket list of things I've not done. Anything Joanne and I wanted to do, we've done.
    I've loved creating new adventures, and now I'm anticipating an incredible spiritual transformation.
    Thank you for being who you are and for carrying a tiny flame from me to the many who you now have an opportunity to influence.
    My family set up a site for people to leave comments so I have the privilege of hearing the wonderful messages that you all are leaving there. You can access it here.
    You'll see lots of photos of my life journey on there — beautiful, beautiful memories I've been privileged to live through. And if you scroll to the bottom, you can leave your comments there.
    You've been so faithful, so responsive, so generous with your your questions, and even gifts and comments as well. Thank you for being open to growing, for being a powerful force and making the world a better place.
    I encourage you to become known for your positivity, for offering hope and encouragement to others.
    You heard it from me for so many years — continue to believe that we can, without a shadow of a doubt, find or create work and a life that is meaningful, purposeful, and profitable. So until we meet again, I'm your friend for eternity, Dan Miller.

    Is your generosity helping or hurting the individual?

    Is your generosity helping or hurting the individual?

    Even when offered with compassion, traditional charity, which should be only a temporary fix, can often enslave individuals—becoming a poverty trap—if extended into the long term. Instead of focusing on the potential, charity cheats them of using their God-given abilities and talents.
    Well, let’s talk about it - we’re right here at Christmas time and it’s a wonderful opportunity to be creative in how we can really help others.
    1. Hi Dan, I’ve been listening for years and you helped me clarify and achieve my goal of selling 500 paintings in 500 days. 
    2. Could you remind me how the saying goes: “If you help someone once, they’re grateful. Help them twice they’re ….. Help them a third time they expect it.” 
    3. I started dabbling in eBay sales and would like to boost it up to be a full-time income. Is that possible?

    WOS: Don’t waste your life believing you can’t

    WOS: Don’t waste your life believing you can’t

    As we look forward to a new year let’s talk about the incredible capabilities of the human spirit. In the Success Principles, Jack Canfield recounts the remarkable tale of Laura Schultz, a 63-year-old woman who defied her own beliefs and lifted a Buick to save her grandson. This act led her to question the limitations she had placed on herself, ultimately embarking on a new journey to study geology and teach at a community college. Joanne and I have a friend who had a similar experience. After losing her speaking voice, she discovered a hidden talent for art. Both stories serve as powerful reminders that it's never too late to pursue our passions and unearth hidden talents within ourselves. Join us as we delve into the theme of self-discovery and the limitless potential within each of us.

48 Days will improve your life.

Thank you for decades of wisdom and humbleness, sharing and teaching. God Bless you and you beloved family. I cherish every moment I spent with you, because that’s how you taught, as if it were one on one. Prayers for you all.

Was enjoying it but...

I don't get the "lazy girl job" moniker. Kinda tasteless. Then I realized this show is for older out of touch people with no clue as to how insulting that is. How about "Lazy Boy?" No? Too offensive? Come on. Won't continue. I don't want to hear about how the older generation bought a house for 5000 and a mule and dad worked at the gas station and paid for five kids college educations. We don't live in that world anymore, so don't add insult to injury yall. Just keep insulting all the younger folk because derpa derpa avocado toast something something bootstraps.

Thank You

Dan, I just want to say thank you. I am a long time listener of your show. Your perspective and mindset has had a profound positive impact on my life. You have helped me learn and grow in so many areas. Your message of finding or creating work you love has fundamentally changed the way I approach my career. You have opened up new ways of thinking in my life that no one else ever did. God has used you in my life in deep and meaningful ways and I know countless other people can say the same.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for who you are and the legacy you are leaving in the world. You, your family, and your friends are in my prayers.
