There has been an antidote for disrespect, hatred and ill will for many, many years.

These people took this antidote every day of their lives and changed the world for the better.

They are Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln and Mother Teresa to mention a few.



Fred Rogers said, “Imagine what our real neighborhoods would be like if each of us offered, as a matter of course, just one kind word to another person.”

Do you want to give more kindness, more love, more understanding, more forgiveness and more of everything that is wholesome and life-giving?

Go and see A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

If you grew up with Mr. Rogers you will know exactly what I am referring to with the latter.

Fred Rogers impacted so many people on so many levels that promoted tolerance and understanding.

Just one kind word to someone on your journey today might make a huge difference.


This type of thinking stems from emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence and mental toughness are the pillars towards promoting intelligent ideas throughout the planet.

Emotional intelligence creates responsive thinking, feelings, actions and results. The opposite of this creates reactive thinking, feelings, actions and results.

The latter is rampant throughout media at all levels in our society.

Thank God that we are not all the same otherwise humanity would have a very boring experience.

However, if more people understood the true power of the human mind and its ability to solve issues or problems, then there just might be fewer uncontrollable and out of control lies going around the world.

What we need to do is to attract these four friends into our existence. They are dopamine, endorphin, oxytocin and serotonin.

Attract these four friends and one has the ability to manage excuses, no goals, no energy, no health, apathy, anger, hatred, distrust and no love.

Guard your thoughts with this script by Dr. Joseph Murphy in order to quell the toxic intruding thoughts.

“Be still, be quiet. I am in control. You must obey me. You are subject to my command. Get out and stay out.”

Your deeper mind has no clue what is real or imagined and only executes the marching orders.

This is not easy.

No kidding.


Be resilient.

Be resolved.

Always remain integral regardless of present circumstances and the truth will set you free.

When there are issues that cause you to derail or immobilize you, stop, think and create other possibilities that are already there for you.

These obstacles will cause you to think on a deeper level and discover hidden solutions that would have never surfaced for you.

You owe it to yourself, your loved ones, your friends, your local community and the greater global arena of life.

Don’t die with the music still inside of you.

Express your greatness and give humanity your talents, expertise, compassion, love and everything that is inside that beautiful body that we call a human being.

It’s called a being because it is a living organism with life and vitality.

Go out there and claim what is rightfully yours and remember what I said.

You can do whatever you want in life intellectually, emotionally, spiritually physically and financially as long as you do not violate the rights of any other human being.

You do this by standing your ground for honesty, truth and compassion.

The truth will always prevail if you do it with love.


Onward and Godward.
