Alan Steinfeld discusses what is Enlightenment with Deepak Chopra

One of my favorite souls out there, Deepak Chopra:


Power of the Master Mind

Moving forward in this Self Help Challenge, this chapter is the 9th step to accumulating riches.

Rather than go into too much detail, I made a mini video. 🙂

Quote of the week from Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich

Poverty may, and generally does, voluntarily take the place of riches.  When riches take the place of poverty, the change is usually brought about through well-conceived and carefully executed PLANS.  Poverty needs no plan.  It needs no one to aid it, because it is bold and ruthless. Riches are shy and timid.  They have to be “attracted.”



The 8th step towards Riches

-According to Napoleon Hill in Think & Grow Rich

On this self help journey, this step is CRUCIAL.  I decided this week to make a mini video update.  Along with that update here’s a list to help check your persistence!

Persistence is a state of mind, therefore it can be cultivated.  Like all states of mind, persistence is based upon definite causes, among them these:

  • Definiteness of purpose. Knowing what one wants in the first and perhaps the most important step toward the development of persistence.  A strong motive forces one to surmount many difficulties.
  • Desire.  It is comparatively easy to acquire and to maintain persistence in pursuing the object of intense desire.
  • Self-reliance.  Belief in one’s ability to carry out a plan encourages one to follow the plan through with persistence.  (Self-reliance can be developed through the principle described in the chapter on autosuggestion.)
  • Definiteness of plans.  Organized plans, even though they may be weak and entirely impractical, encourage persistence.
  • Accurate knowledge.  Knowing that one’s plans are sound, based upon experience or observation, encourages persistence; “guessing” instead of “knowing” destroys persistence.
  • Cooperation. Sympathy ,understanding, and harmonious cooperation with others tend to develop persistence.
  • Willpower. The habit of concentrating one’s thoughts upon the building of plans for the attainment of a definite purpose leads to persistence.
  • Habit. Persistence is the direct result of habit. The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experiences upon which it feeds.  Fear, the worse of all enemies, can be effectively cured by forced repetition of acts of courage.  Everyone who has seen active service in war knows this.

Austin Happy Moment of the Day

So it’s been 5 days since I quit my job.  For close to a year, I had been working in a call center taking about 50-60 calls a day under a stressful situation.

Well, before I took on that Job, I had spent the previous 2 years coming as close to peaceful as I could.

It’s only been 5 days.. and I already feel back to “normal.”  Life feels so much brighter again, and I’m already experiencing beautiful moments.

Early this morning on my way to check out an auction, I saw my downstairs neighbors  walking on some train tracks in a wooded area, playing the guitar and singing.


amish guitar

Sorta.. but not really.


So adorable. Seriously. The guy wears an amish straw hat, with a busy beard.  Then his gf(a guess), wears cute quirky vintage flower dresses.  So you can imagine seeing those two strolling alongside a railroad track enjoying their day, was great!




Great as always

Helene-DeutschIn 1944  Helen Deutsch—notably, the first psychoanalyst to specialize in women’s psychology—coined the term the “as if” self.

This concept was expanded upon and called the “false self” by D. W. Wincott  in 1960. “Other people’s expectations can become of overriding importance,” Wincott noted, “overlaying or contradicting the original sense of self, the one connected to the very roots of one’s being.” (“Our…
