If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.

A positive state of mental acuity delivers results unparalleled by any other frame of reference. 

Trying to maintain a positive frame of mind requires discipline, determination, focus, perspective, courage and a generous dose of optimism.

A good chef maintains these ingredients in their mind so as to counter any contrary information with the appropriate response.

It can be incredibly trying at times. Sometimes, it seems almost impossible. But the truth is that we have as many mental resources as we are willing and capable of maintaining on a daily basis.

If you study any of the champions, any of the heroes, any of the people who have broken through, you will find these qualities are omnipresent. This is not to say that these people were not struggling to maintain mental harmony, for unquestionably, all of them were. But rather, the ones who succeed are the ones who find their way back to center, day after day.

Working to achieve that balance every single day takes far more work than might be imagined. And on some days, it almost feels impossible.

One of the greatest tools that I have ever employed was given to me by one of my dearest friends who taught me the art of gratitude….Waking up every single day and taking inventory of the things for which I am most grateful. It is very easy to get caught up in all the things that you have not done yet, have not purchased yet, have not succeeded at yet.

But surprisingly, waking up and looking at all of the things in your life for which you have good cause for which to feel deep appreciation can be the jumping board to take your mind back into a positive place of balance and harmony.

Just a thought✨

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
