The Science of Success

Wallace Wattles
Wallace D Wattles – 1860–1911
A Book Review
Who should read this book?

I rather like the way the author himself suggests who should read these pages:

“This book is practical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories.

It is intended for men and woman whose most pressing need is money; who wish to get rich first and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which these conclusions were reached.”

The Shift

A review of the video, produced by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Who should view this video?

People who realize:

Ø  That there is more to life than just accepting your daily ‘lot’.

Ø  That they are stuck in a rut, growing older with their only future being to retire in the years ahead and start the process of slowly dying.

Ø  They desperately want to hope that there is an opportunity for them, before they leave the confines of this earth.

Ø  That even though they are young, they are not happy in their ‘chosen’ profession; they are looking for more.

Ø  They sense that there is a power, somewhere out there, that they are not tapping in to.

Ø  Their present relationship to a significant other is on shaky ground, whatever their age group.

This list is endless, but so far it’s a good start, because most of us reading these lines, qualify on a least three of the above points.

A Taste Of Calisto’s

 

Beef Trinchado

 

I am a great believer in publically acknowledging those people who provide me with good service and products.

My favorite Portuguese restaurant is Calisto’s in the south of Johannesburg in Mr. Mandela’s land of sunshine – South Africa.

Today, my partner Eileen and I popped in to Calisto’s for a lunch.

Long Walk To Freedom

 

Nelson Mandela

 

 

The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

“The Autobiography succeeds because the vicissitudes Mandela has gone through, in the course of his life, are so dramatic that the reader cannot help responding to them as if to a fairy tale or moral fable of some kind. No hero of legend ever went through such protracted trials to arrive at such an improbable victory” – Dan Jacobson, Daily Telegraph.

The book is the autobiography of Rolihlahla ‘Nelson’ Mandela, more endearingly known by his tribal name – Madiba.

….of Books and Movies

How often have you heard others say, ‘Don’t watch the movie, until you’ve read the book’, or ‘The movie was not anywhere near as good as the book’. Of course, most of us agree with these statements and their many variants.

Maybe we should agree, because there must be a measure of truth in each of these statements.
