    Fri, Sept 18 | My Life Has Been A Terrible String of Misfortunes…

    Though it usually gets mis-attributed to Mark Twain, it was actually a French philosopher who lived in the 1500s who coined this thought-provoking piece of brilliance.

    Wed, Sept 16 | Often The Rules For Success Are So…

    You’ve undoubtedly heard the old saying, “Behind every great man, there’s a great woman.”







    Well, here’s a variation for you...







    “Behind every great success, there’s a great system.”







    Though both the great woman and the great system go unnoticed, their presence makes all the difference in the world.







    Success is all around you. If want to create more success in both your professional and personal life – notice I did not say “attract more success” – you need to identify and emulate the system that’s producing it.

    Tue, Sept 15 | Maybe So; Maybe Not…

    This quote doesn’t mean anything unless you know the classic Zen story behind it.







    I heard Dr. Dyer tell it years ago, and here’s how I remember it…







    A farmer walking into town passes The Buddha and says, “Buddha, please help me."







    "Something terrible has happened. My ox just died and now I have no way to plow my fields."







    "Isn’t that the worst thing that could have happened to me?”







    The Buddha replies, “Maybe so; maybe not.”







    The farmer walks away shaking his head, thinking The Buddha has obviously gone mad.







    On his way home, he spots a huge, strong, wild horse and ropes him.







    This horse will do even more work than the ox.







    Next week, the farmer sees The Buddha and says, “You were right! I now have a horse that can do twice the work of my old ox. Isn’t that wonderful news?”







    “Maybe so; maybe not,” says The Buddha.







    Again, the farmer walks home thinking The Buddha has lost touch with reality.







    When he arrives, he finds his son lying on the ground with a broken leg.







    He had been thrown while riding the new horse.







    On his next trip into town, the farmer spots The Buddha and says, “You were right again."







    "The horse broke my son’s leg. Now he won’t be able to help me at harvest time."







    "Surely, Buddha, don’t you see this is the worst news imaginable?”







    “Maybe so; maybe not,” the Buddha calmly replied.







    That was the last straw!







    The farmer walked away, telling himself he had wasted enough time seeking advice from this old, senile man.







    Just then, word spread throughout town that war had broken out against a bigger, stronger village.







    Troops were going to every house and farm to round up all the able-bodied young men to fight.







    They would be outnumbered and outmatched, and would most likely die.







    The farmer rushed home.







    The troops had come, but since his son had a broken leg, he was not taken, and his life was spared.







    And from that day forward, the farmer never doubted the wisdom of The Buddha again.

    Please Note: I realize not all these gentlemen made their fortunes during The Depression. My point is about their attitudes regarding the prevailing financial conditions of their times.
