Manifesting Your Heart’s Desires Issue 9
Manifesting Your Heart’s Desires (Issue 9)
This issue is about the power of gratitude. In
that vein, I’d like to take a moment to say to
you, “Thanks for being subscribers. Thanks for
being a part of my life. Thanks for deciding
to improve your life and for using me as a
resource to help you to do that.”
Each issue I write, I put myself in your place
and imagine the questions you would ask and I
do my best to answer them line by line when they
come up. I hope that I have done my job and I
hope that I can continue to serve you and your
loved ones for a long time.
So here we go.
When you focus on what you’re grateful for,
you tend to create more of that and more of
the things that you want because you’re not
focused on the things you don’t want.
A friend of mine named Bob Samara was a Viet Nam
Point man and he has a wonderful saying based on
his experiences in Viet Nam. He says,
“Always remember, in the jungle you will either
think about the bullets being fired at you, or
where you are aiming, but not both. I always
choose to think about where I am aiming and
where I am going.”
He goes on to say that:
“The deep training of your mind to do this
instinctively is the single most valuable
thing you can have on this earth.”
So, what are you grateful for? Don’t just
let that be a passing question. Really take
a few minutes to think about it and then
do something about it. Thank someone. Write
a letter to someone. Make a phone call.
The more time you spend being grateful, the
more great things will come to you. To help
you to put into perspective all the things
you can be grateful for, read the following.
“If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes
on your back, a roof overhead and a place to
sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
“If you have money in the bank,in your wallet,
and spare change in a dish, you are among
the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.”
“If you get this on your own computer, you
are part of the 1% in the world who has
“If you woke up this morning with more health
than illness … you are more blessed than
the many who will not even survive this day.”
“If you have never experienced the fear in
battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the
agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation
… you are ahead of 700 million people in
“If you can attend religious services without
the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or
death, you are envied by, and more blessed than,
three billion people in the world.”
“If your parents are still alive and still
married …you are very rare.”
“If you can hold your head up and smile, you
are not the norm; you’re unique to all those
in doubt and despair.”
The truth is, that’s just the beginning.
How about the clean water you have to drink?
How about indoor plumbing? How about toilet
paper for that matter? How about a shower
whenever you want it? How about an abundance
of food? How about your car, your house,
your pets? How about painkilling drugs,
antibiotics, life-saving new medical procedures?
Be grateful for all that you have and all that
you are and be grateful for each and every moment.
So, that’s it for this issue my friend. May
you be blessed beyond belief this week and
may all of your dreams and your success
come true. And may everything you wish for
be the least that you get.
Until next issue…
To your success,
