Author Unknown   Be Yourself
Ever since I was a little kid, I didn't want to be me. I wanted to be like Billy Widdledon, and Billy Widdledon didn't even like me. I walked like he walked; I talked like he talked; and I signed up for the high school he signed up for.

Which was why Billy Widdledon changed. He began to hang around Herby Vandeman; he walked like Herby Vandeman; he talked like Herby Vandeman. He mixed me up! I began to walk and talk like Billy Widdledon, who was walking and talking like Herby Vandeman.

And then it dawned on me that Herby Vandeman walked and talked like Joey Haverlin. And Joey Haverlin walked and talked like Corky Sabinson.

So here I am walking and talking like Billy Widdledon's imitation of Herby Vandeman's version of Joey Haverlin, trying to walk and talk like Corky Sabinson. And who do you think Corky Sabinson is always walking and talking like? Of all people, Dopey Wellington - that little pest who walks and talks like me!

Personal Development News
Donald G. Carty   Within You is The Power - New Book Release
More now than ever before we need to be inspired and energized by the Power lying hidden in each of us, so that we may rise from the ashes of our dead hopes to build anew our life in greater beauty and in more harmony. This illumination makes this book even more pertinent now than when it was originally written over 80 years ago in the 1920's.

"The enlightened message of this book moves forward in time with grace and ease, and serves to help bring the inner power of mind and spirit into expression, wisely and in harmony with Universal Law." Donald G. Carty

New Skill Sets
HAMR   Rewire Your own Brain with HAMR
The hammer assumedly works by exposing one section of the brain to a new thought then activating several other major sections simultaneously. The new thought can then spread to all of the active areas at once. This effectively "forces" the brain to experience and moderate the new thought as a whole. If this new thought provides the brain with a better, easier or faster way to get the result it needs, it will secrete chemicals that cement the new thought pattern into place.

"The Hammer is the ultimate Rut Buster. We utilize mainly Cognitive Behavour Therapy for a variety of mental illnesses at Pinelodge Clinic and I am impressed by the simplicity of this technique and its potential power to move past blocks."
Sean Farmer - Director Pinelodge Clinic Psychiatric Hospital
