A Simple Investment for Success

A Simple Investment for Success

Modern physics offers evidence that we can turn our thoughts into our reality. Still, few people seem able to make their dreams come true.

But Trevor Blake can. Talk to the author and entrepreneur and you may learn something you haven’t picked up from all the books and documentaries about the power of positive thinking.

We all have negative thoughts. No exceptions. And these negative thoughts stand in the way of realizing our dreams. We are experts at self-sabotage. That’s why the realities we create are so much messier than the beautiful dreams we have for our futures.

But here’s one of Blake’s tricks: You can control your response to your negative thoughts. You can discipline yourself and consciously overwrite a negative thought with a positive one. Simple. That’s why Blake chose “Three Simple Steps” as the title for his book.

The step may be simple. The impact is profound. Blake grew up in severe poverty and is known as a multi-millionaire. Now he wants to teach you how you too can realize your best dreams.

This is a course you don’t want to miss. It is perhaps the smallest and simplest investment you can make in a happier and more successful future.

You’ll learn more from Blake than controlling your thinking. There are two more simple steps. Find out what they are and put them to work for you in Three Simple Steps to Success in Business and Life, an online course hosted by The Intelligent Optimist (formerly Ode magazine) at 5 p.m. Pacific time on June 3, 10 and 17.

And if you register by May 15th, you’ll pay only $125 for the $150 course.

After reading most of the comments, I don't view this so much as an ad but as an opportunity to attend an online course with an interesting topic that may do some good. I do wish there was a little more of the idea explained in the article-- some food for thought -- maybe an excert from the book. I won't be attending the online course - right now it's not feasible-- but will look into his book. Thank you.

And I read your comment and now I have to go listen to the song "I want candy" on YouTube.
