What you attract in life is a mirror of who you really are
Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours
May 30, 2004
Today's issue is really kind of a two part issue.
I used to hate those TV shows that would be continued
next week, so sorry about the newsletter here being
continued next week.
Lot of great stuff for you to think about. In this two parter,
I've written the first article and next week you'll get a
second, very related article by Dr. Robert Anthony, so
look forward to next week's issue also.
We are all so hung up on "Doing" stuff, we think we must
do, do, do to become successful. Well, I'm here to blow the
lid off this and tell you it's not necessarily true.
I as much as anyone love to "do" stuff, it makes me feel
important and worthwhile and gives me some sense of
satisfaction, yet..... doing does not necessarily make me
There's something more, something deeper, something I
think you should see more of that really makes a person a success in life, or business or sports.
I also wanted you to know how very much I appreciate you
for who you are and for being such a faithful reader of
our newsletter. Without you, we wouldn't exist.
May all your dreams come true,

David or Goliath?
by Dave Cole
Being a success in business or in any aspect of
life is not necessarily about doing a bunch of things
to get there.
What you attract in life is a mirror of who you really are.
One of my motivational "pep talks" I give to my young
ball players is about the story of David and Goliath.
Goliath was the giant, bigger and stronger than anyone else,
and of course he knew it. His physical size gave him an
absolute advantage over every one of his opponents and
each opponent he faced could only look up and see the
tremendous physical size of Goliath.
There were tens of thousands of warriors in the Israelite army,
yet every single one who went out to the challenge given by the giant Goliath, never came back alive.
Every man who went out to face the giant, looked at how big
this guy was. They saw a giant before them, they saw the
adversity facing them and attracted back to them defeat.
But one guy, David, who happened to be the youngest and
smallest of the Israelite army did things a bit differently.
He was aware of the size of the giant, however.....he focused
his attention on who he was and the power he had within him,
instead of on his opponent and the adversity he faced.
When we play baseball, too often kids look at the other players and think about how big or how good they are instead of focusing on their own abilities and the training they've received and who they are.
Success is not necessarily something to do, it's more something to be.
When you focus your energies on who you are and on the
power and abilities and backing you have, then you are able
to attract to you the unknown powers that will assist and
help you attain success and bring to you success in whatever
field or endeavor you are in.
David focused his energies on who he was and his abilities
rather than on how big the opposition was and the problems
that were present.
We all have problems and things to over come, but we all
have the power within us to overcome these things.
What we focus on very often determines the outcome.
Focus on the problem and we attract more problem to us.
Focus on the ability you have and the power you have and
we attract more ability and power to us.
Does that make sense to you?
You don't necessarily need to do a lot of things to be
successful or to overcome your adversity and problems.
You do need to focus your energies on the positive qualities
you do have and the power that is available to you.
Goliath was a success as a warrior for the most part of his
life because he focused on his wins and on his abilities. He
lost because he took his focus off who he was and gave
away his power to David who was so much smaller and
David won that battle because he didn't focus on Goliath's
strengths and the giants obvious advantages. David won
over Goliath because David focused on his own unique
strengths and abilities.
You have your own strengths and abilities, you each have
individual problems and adversities in your life.
What you focus on the most is what you will attract the most
I tell my kids it doesn't matter if Randy Johnson is on the
mound pitching against you, what matters the most is who
you are inside yourself. If my kids look at that big pitcher
and start to focus on who the opposition is, instead of
who they are and the ability they have, then that pitcher has
won the battle already, even before my kids get in the
batters box to face him.
To be a success in sports, in business, in life,
You must recognize you.
You must affirm your value and your ability constantly.
This is what separates the winners from the losers...
"The principles you live by create the world you live in;
if you change the principles you live by, you will change
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO SUCCEED
Nothing will happen by itself.
It will all come your way once you understand
that you have to make it come your way.
Life to a large extent is what you make of it.
Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility.
Choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you to success.
Nobody can do it for you. Only you can make it happen.
You're the only one that has to live your life.
The day you take complete responsibility for yourself,
the day you stop making any excuses,
that's the day you start on the road to success.
You have the power to succeed at anything.
The power to fulfill your dreams is within you.
