The Attitude of Real Life

Michael Murphy
I am exposing YOU.......

I'm warning you. No, really, I'm just telling you. You are about to be exposed and there's nothing you can do about it. And, I'm going to be the one to expose YOU.

I know a lot more about YOU than you realize. I don't know what the rumors are. I pay no attention to them.

These are facts! And YOU are being EXPOSED!

I know that you've always felt different than other people. You've even felt that you are WAY different than other people.

I know that your ideas and viewpoint are not average. Your mind is working and coming up with things no one has ever
talked about or maybe even thought of.

I know that you feel, down deep in your heart, a passion that you alone possess. Most people would never understand your passion. You've even tried to explain it to a few folks and they still don't get it.

I know that at times, you've felt like the odd one out. That you didn't quite fit in.

I know that when you love someone, even as a friend, it runs deep in your blood, deep in your soul. That's just how it is
with you.

I also know that there are times when you feel misunderstood. And, worst of all, you don't know how to get others to understand you.

I also know that there are times when you feel vulnerable. You feel that you may not want to let others get too close. That you have to protect your own heart.

I also know WHY you feel the way that you do. WHY you feel special and different.

In fact, when you think about it, it all makes sense.

YOU were ONE of tens of millions of seeds that fertilized the egg in your mother's womb. That's right. Had any other of those seeds gotten the job done, YOU wouldn't be here right now.

You see, YOU started out as a miracle. YOUR LIFE is a statistical miracle. I mean really think about it.

How could YOU not feel special?

I'm exposing you. YOU are amazing! The planet is rich, no, wealthy, with YOU here. It is far wealthier with you here than if you'd never shown up.


This Could Be Your Answer Too

You are not alone if you've ever wondered what it is that might be keeping you back. I met a guy the other day who asked me, "Michael, it seems that there is something that is standing in my way of my dreams and I don't know what it is. Can you help?"

I've often contemplated what exactly makes achieving our dreams so difficult. Perhaps I found one answer that could likely be true for most people just like you.

I downloaded the audio book of 'Think and Grow Rich' the other day. I was listening to the story of the partner of Thomas Edison. He set out on a journey to partner with Edison and made himself a millionaire in the process.

The point of the story is that, he had a BURNING DESIRE. He laid it all on the line to accomplish something. He, in a sense, 'burned all the bridges' so that there was no way of retreat. He put himself in a place where he must succeed.

Most people cannot bear the thought of possible defeat on a large, life scale. Thus, they sit back and never attempt what they are capable of. They are hoping that there is an easier way.

You often hear that people who have had huge success, were at one time, nearly destitute in their lives. I see a pattern for those who succeed on a large scale. They are willing to risk everything in order to live out their destiny of greatness.

In Thoreau's 'Walden', he said, "The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation." We deem the pain of possible failure to be much greater than the pain that we feel is tolerable by not ever attempting to realize our potential and achieve what we are truly capable of.

This kind of thinking must be eliminated IF you are to achieve your lofty goals. Until your BURNING DESIRE is so strong that it consumes your life, you will not likely live out the potential that you're capable of.

What is the 'one thing' that you know is deep in your heart to do in your life? What is the one passion that you feel that you were put here on this planet to do? Its time to put your hand to that plow. Its time to prime the flow of your brain chemistry to get you focused and consumed with your dream. When you begin to do this and choose not to look back, then you will be rewarded with the rewards of life that you've always imagined.

Offered to you with great love,


The Purpose of Prosperity

"God gave me my money,” said John D. Rockefeller. “I believe the power to make money is a gift from God to be developed and used to the best of our ability for the good of mankind.”

Rockefeller could have left his legacy at the enormous fortune he had amassed throughout his career. He would have undoubtedly been remembered as one of the shrewdest and most successful entrepreneurs in history. But, a deeply religious man, Rockefeller was unsatisfied with that.

“The only question with wealth is, what do you do with it,” said Rockefeller. Applying the same focus and shrewdness
to his charitable vision as he did with his company, Rockefeller decided early on in life to devote much of his wealth and energy to benevolent efforts. From establishing Spelman College in Atlanta and Spelman Seminary to teach freed female slaves to endowing the University of Chicago, Rockefeller decided to listen to his conscience in deciding how to best use his wealth.

“Having been endowed with the gift I possess, I believe it is my duty to make money and still more money and to use the money I make for the good of my fellow man according to the dictates of my conscience,” said Rockefeller. “I was trained from the beginning to work and to save. I have always regarded it as a religious duty to get all I could honorably and to give all I could. I was taught that way by the minister when I was a boy.”

Rockefeller also established the Rockefeller University, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, the General Education Board, the Rockefeller Sanitation Commission, and the Rockefeller Foundation. “I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity an obligation; every possession a duty,” he said. Rockefeller’s work with the University of Chicago even almost led to a nervous breakdown; much of his hair would fall out and he would experience frequent digestive problems. But, he would continue in his quest to respond to appeals for funds from various sources believing it was his duty to do so.

“It is wrong to assume that men of immense wealth are always happy,” said Rockefeller. He understood that wealth
did not equal happiness and while he was appreciative of the fortune he had amassed, he believed that only in giving it away would he understand true happiness. His religious upbringing and his conscience both dictated his duty to do so.

But, Rockefeller’s business aptitude and his keen eye for efficiency were not lost in his charitable vision. “Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it,” he believed. It was only after much careful study and the assistance of expert advisers that Rockefeller made his decisions as to who to donate funds to. He wanted his money to be used as effectively as possible, much like he ran his business.

Rockefeller listened to his conscience and wound up giving away more of his fortune than he kept, which was the second half of the great legacy which he created.

Billionaire Insights

Ray Kroc tried his hand at many things in his life. It was as a milkshake maker salesman that in 1961, he bought out the McDonald's brothers, Dick and Mac, for $2.7 million. At age 59, Kroc took McDonalds, a powerful, positive attitude and eventually turned it into a global economic force. Kroc stated, “The two most important requirements for major success are: first, being in the right place at the right time, and second, doing something about it.”

Ray Kroc's 'right time, right place' came after 59 years of 'searching'. At an age when most are thinking of retirement, Kroc was thinking of his future. It was with this 'positive attitude' that Kroc created his fortune.

If a 59 year old milkshake salesman took someone else's concept and idea and became a billionaire, what attitude can you adopt in your life to achieve your goals and live your dreams
