“Tempest-tossed souls, wherever you may be, under whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this-in the ocean of life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and the sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming. Keep your hands firmly upon the helm of thought.” - James Allen

These words were written 103 years ago and are truer today than ever.

Unprecedented times, unprecedented thinking, and unprecedented events spur the following.

Imagine what you could really do with your life.

If you’re reading this right now, you know exactly where you are intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially at this juncture in your life.

You may be at the crossroad of life contemplating whether to take the X in the road or the Y road that leads to new and different possibilities never before experienced.

The X represents where you are currently in all five areas of your life and the Y represents where you would like to be.

The red colored section prior to the fork represents a decisive moment.

If this resonates with you, consider this reflective opportunity to ponder the next 3-5 years of your most important journey, your life.

One of the least utilized intellectual factors today is imagination.

Not utilizing this incredible entity paves the way either for a life of existence or a life worth living.

Find a quiet place and answer the following questions while this arrangement of Pure Imagination that I recently recorded plays in the background.


Some people will never take the time to do this however those that do, reap all the rewards that would otherwise evade them.

What is your purpose?

Your clearly defined purpose fuels your passion, commitment, and determination to press onward regardless of present circumstances.

Why do you want this?

The motivating factor that lies behind this question is only intrinsically unveiled. If it is externally driven, it will eventually fade into the sunset.

How do you intend to manifest and bring this to fruition?

This is the most challenging question for some people.

If they don’t clearly have the how, they immediately get stuck in their tracks.

97% always ask, “How am I going to do this?” 

Asking the how derails all possibilities that might exist.

Don’t ask the how!


Do not be deceived by the autocratic nature of how you are going to achieve your hearts desire, as this controlling force will crush any inspiration towards oblivion.

The universe has big eyes, big ears and laser focused attention what you ask for good, bad or indifferent every single day of your life.

If you’ve made it to the end of this blog, you have already made a commitment to yourself.

Congratulations, as the best is yet to come for you.
