I am a freelance writer based in Inglewood, California, USA. I used to write under a few aliases, but now I have nothing to hide and write mostly under my own name. I write mostly on self-help topics.

In Napoleon Hill's book "Think and Grow Rich", there was a tale about an "ignorant", "uneducated" man who made a fortune like Henry Ford in the hospitality and hotel business. Genuine ignorance and uneducated thinking is not to see the opportunities in front of you and under your feet...
How many times in life have you wanted a winner without the work and not gotten one? Well, that is the big punch line to the joke of life. We all have to understand the pitfalls and how not to lose (which means sometimes or mostly actually losing temporarily, then making a comeback pe...
In reality, there is not a middle ground when it comes to genuine attitudes about life, death and all of it. There is a top and there is a bottom. Everything is an energy, it is either the energy of a winner or the energy of a loser. For that, there is not any in-between or middle gro...
Well, this page will be a little different from me. I am going to lay down the bare-bones truth of every matter in my reality here. Nothing else will work for this article anyhow. So, here goes.
This is not an article about shallow reality, simple getting of material things through prayer or anything like that. This article will be a serious treatise on The One who holds all the cards and realities in the "life game" we are playing as a whole. This article will start fun and ...
Wake up! We all need to at some time. Spending a whole day in bed is something we all wish we can do at times, until we realize it is time for the most genuine of action and it is do or die. Well, read as I write and read between the lines also, you will see what I mean:
It's a funny thing, but I do meditate and develop my inner self, and I want to share some of that with my readers. Not so much to preach, but just to say that "yes, there are things about the mind that we must understand that are more than the usual", and that I do not just explore th...
There is a certain mentality you must have if you want to really get things done in reality. The fantasy of how to get things done always seems easier. But, in reality there are not any fantastic short cuts, or "easy ways to do things". There is only smartly used effort, and "using wh...
Sure, there are many things that can be said about mental health, but this one sticks out in my mind deeply. It sticks out as deeply as the roots of an oak tree go down into the earth.
Sure, money is made in two modes of action: Work and play. Indeed, though, work is the best known way of making money. But some of us who are creative enough get lucky enough to play for money as work, if you know what I mean. This article is realistically about understanding how both...
"We all want to win, but who loves to train to win?" Mark Spitz, eight time Olympic Gold Medal Winner, and the guy who won gold medals after him in the Olympics wanted to party for a while before he trained some more and won more gold hardware at the most recent Olympics in Rio, Brazi...
I will explore a very unique take on fortune telling in this series of sections.
When you feel everything is "going damn well down the tubes", and when you feel "there is not any hope", I can only give you the advice Viktor Frankl gave everyone in his books, essentially for starters: We should not expect anything of life, but life does expect things out of us that...
Some would say "take it too seriously and die". Some would say "do not take it seriously enough and get killed. My personal point of view is "God and good have rigged everything, so, it is best to understand that God is the 'casino house' and the genuine devil is the dinner and the fl...
Elections. The biggest business of all in the guise of voting for our "leaders". When I saw the clips of the "60 Minutes" focus groups on politics for this 2016 election, I realized how timely my thoughts really are on this, so, I will put them down on the screen.
Despite what may be said about outer forces ruling economies, and all the pessimism going on in the "outer arenas". Wealth and productive work are really "inner things".
Think about this fact, no matter what we do the present and the future are going to be better than the past. I just read this book about the year 1956 by Simon Hall, and boy if that book is accurate about that year in the past, the past is more of a mess than the present or future cou...
Sick on the dream or nightmare? Well, we must get real with ourselves and consciously do without regard to what is told to us, how it is told to us, and without that ghost of fear behind our actions. In this article, I am not going to pull any punches:
Ask not and it shall not be given. Ask and it shall be given. Sure, that sounds rather "holy" or something, but is that not the reality of life. Ultimately, we all get what we ask for, and allow what we do not ask for. This is what makes reality a double edged sword which cuts all way...
The elections in the United States of America seem like a mess around the world, and I can give a realistic philosophical opinion of how they got that way, but not too much of a judgement. I will keep this introduction short, and the article body longer and more interesting, so here g...
There is a certain way we all must sail with the winds of life if we want to get anywhere, that is where autosuggestion, self-hypnosis, and mental discipline come in. Without those disciplines, we are like corks on the water going nowhere hoping we make a good port, but with self-dire...
The first thing when I think of business is the title I gave this series and sections of article. I would have just called it "A Big Game", but that title is not specific enough for what I am talking about here. In fact, I can say that the title I gave this article is perfect for what...
We all get the temptation to lie and play games in life that benefit us and not others. Indeed, we get the temptation to cut corners when the going gets rough. That is never, ever in our best interest as conscious beings. In reality, the only way out is to work through it: cruise thro...
Everybody wants the truth, but does "everybody" always want what naturally follows after the truth, which is honesty. Lies may be told to avoid it, games may be played to get around it, but it always there: Honest reality. That is what this article is about.
Like anyone, sometimes, I do not feel like putting out extra effort. That is when I get stronger in my efforts. Here it is, a formula:
