10 Rules July 18, 2011
“I decree, I declare, and I accept: I think well of others, and wish well of others in my thoughts, words, and deeds, while I and they, attain”.
Remember that prosperity is not just “money” but all of the resources that you have been given. That’s why we need to understand that we can have been granted all of the Major 8 and simply need to accept them and use them to the fullest extent in our life. Since money is indicative as a measure of our success, sometimes we only think of money to the exclusion of all the rest. Here I will again use “money” as the example, but understand that you can and should replace the word money here for any of the other elements of the Major 8.
Here is will speak of the Golden Rule of Prosperity and speak of “money” but after you read this section, reread it, but replace the word “money” with any of the Major 8 that you are seeking or currently “working” on. You want to master all of them to enjoy a full and happy life.
Here’s the Golden Rule: Think well of others at the same time you are thinking of yourself in all areas of the Major 8.
People stop their own attainment in the Major 8 when they confess and affirm good things for themselves, but then state otherwise about others. Many times it’s certainly without intent or malice, but it is harmful just the same. We’ve all heard it and have done it: “They don’t have a cent to their name”, “He’s a loser”, “She has 3 kids, she’s on welfare, and will never amount to anything”, etc. Every time you say this, you are “wishing” this (continual situation) on them. But life is a mirror, and your ears only hear your words, and it comes back on you. That’s why we too, want others to speak well of us!
A.L. Williams, in his book: “All You Can Do is All You Can Do” tells a story in which a person “wishes” bad for someone, not directly dealing with money, but with IQ or “smarts” in “test taking”. In this story it is smarts and not money (however money is mentioned at the end of the story, used to indicate the measure of success between the bully and the victim). While reading about this story, remember it could be money, smarts, and looks, something about your kids, sex life, respect or any of the Major 8. Here’s the story:
This man did not test well in high school, but he was well liked by other students. His scores weren’t due to lack of study, indicated by the light on in his room late at night as he studied hard. One of his best friends always did well, seemingly without much effort.
While juniors, both of the boys took the college entrance exams together. The “smart” one did pretty well, but the one who did not test well, received a terrible score. He made the mistake of telling his “best” friend what his score was. As a cruel joke, his (so called) best friend would see him across the school campus and yell to him: “Hey, 680!” Everyone would laugh. It obviously was humiliating.
Today (the book was written in the eighties) the boy who didn’t test well is making $75,000 per year and by now probably has approached financial independence and the “smart” boy is basically penniless, and can’t seem to hold a job.
Now reread read this section again, but replace the word “money” with any of the Major 8.
Wish well for others and when you see the fall, don’t gloat; help. When you see others succeed, know that the Universe is big enough for both of your dreams, wishes, desires and goals.
Remember the Major 8: Good Health, enjoyment of food, a restful night’s sleep, money, life and a legacy, sexual gratification, well being of your children and those you love, and a feeling of importance. Then, wish them upon everyone and wish that others will wish them on you.

I decree, I declare, I accept: "I believe in my dreams enough to push through any obstacle, to feel the euphoria of achievement of accomplishment".
In your quest for success in achieving any or all of the major 8, be sure to add action and push through.
A person can find “gems” of wisdom anywhere and everywhere. I mostly find the things I share with you in books. Along with the other books I read on a daily basis which includes topics such as gemstones, motivation, inventions, creativity, getting rich, etc. I also read a biography of interesting people. The book “Goldie, A Lotus Grows in the Mud” the author details on the inner front flap: “…Goldie talks about the lessons she’s learned, and the wisdom she feels she’s been given, in the hope of giving something back”. That right there is why I’m prompted to include this book in my recommendations.
I must confess that I’ve “been in love” with Goldie since I first saw her in the seventies on TV and later in movies, as she truly radiates “life and happiness” in every picture and movie I’ve seen. She has such a wonderful and very unique countenance that has retained the childlike look of innocence and happiness; traits that we all appreciate and wish for ourselves. Reading only the first few pages, I learned that her dream for what she wanted to be when she grew up was “happy”.
Well, it definitely is a great book, is well written, reads easily reads much like a screenplay complete with foreshadowing, a plot ordainly casted with real characters.
What I wanted to share from this book is on page 36 where Goldie explains what dancing meant and I'm sure still means to her:
“For me, dancing provided a physical euphoria that nothing else would ever touch. Anything after that felt like a cheap trick. To push yourself to the physical and mental limits, to ask yourself to deliver more than you think you possibly can and to come through, is the greatest high there is.”
It’s this paragraph that struck me as something worth sharing with the world, and I’m thinking that if these few pages are any indication, more such gems are forthwith in coming.
Understand that your dream, goal, wish, desire, whatever it is, can be inserted in place of Goldie’s dream of dancing above and if you truly believe it is “you”, then you too can feel the same euphoria. More importantly are the words that follow: “To push yourself to…” Remember that nothing happens unless you put action in your dream plan. No one else will or can do this for you. Little action brings “little” results. Big action brings “BIG” results, and even brings the results faster. It too brings obstacles faster, but they will come anyway, get through them faster! As Goldie says to push yourself , ask of yourself and deliver more than you think you can, and you actually push through to the success you want, this is the greatest “high” there is.
I want you to get “high” on success, yours and others. This country and this world needs people to push toward their goals and achieve them and then teach others to do the same. Don’t rely on other friends, relatives, or the government to help you. You do it. You can. Get “high”!
Best of continued success! Ter Scott!

In a book titled: “All You Can Do is All You Can Do” by insurance industry success giant of the eighties, A.L. Williams, I learned again about the power of desire in reaching one’s goals. In the introduction of his book, author Art tells us: “I discovered that you don’t have to have extraordinary abilities to succeed. You can be the most common person in the world and still do something uncommon with you life”. He goes on further to tell us that the only real credentials are willingness to work and a burning desire to “be somebody”.
In Tom Hopkins’ book: “How to Master the Art of Selling” offers so many real life tips that can help anyone in life that it could also be called, “How to Master the Art of Living”, also shares something about the importance of desire. Tom offers 12 qualities that make a champion salesperson; number 7 is desire. He tells us “A quality I can’t measure, but I know it’s always present in Champions, is the burning desire to achieve. Interesting isn’t it, that both authors did not use the word “desire” alone, but also coupled it with the word: “burning”.
Today consider your desires to attain, how strong are they? Do you have the “burn” to make it happen?

"I decree, I declare, I affirm, that health, wealth, wisdom and prosperity are mine".
Today I’m starting a series of “Affirming…” each of the Major 8.
We’ve talked about the 10 Secret Rules of Attainment and how to attain each of these Major 8 things that people desire, but now I want to speak a bit about each specifically and how to “affirm” each. If you’ve not read the previous about the 10 Secret Rules, be sure to do so now, and even if you’ve been with me this far, you may want to review each of the 10 before you go on.
You’ll remember that the Major 8 things people desire are: Good Health, enjoyment of food, a restful night’s sleep, money, life and a legacy, sexual gratification, well being of your children and those you love, and a feeling of importance.
I’ll start with the first of the Major 8 which is “good health” and now speak specifically about this. Because I’m speaking about health, I must present a caveat here as we live among people who may choose to take my words or motivation incorrectly. Understand as I’m sharing with you in my books, seminars, and in this section, that I’m not a doctor and I am not prescribing anything; except that I’m encouraging you in confessing good things and having a proper attitude. So, because of the high litigation society in which we live, here is my blanket statement of “legal stuff”:
This material is created to provide guidance with the understanding that the publisher or author is not rendering legal, accounting, financial, medical or other similar professional services. If any type of the above mentioned advice and counsel is required, the services of a certified professional should be sought. Everyone’s situation is unique and specific questions should be addressed to an appropriate professional.
Now, let’s continue. Just talking about the subject of health, causes you to focus attention on it, which in itself is good. Just as with anything, we get what we focus on and the outcome of what we get is due to how, whether positively or negatively, as how we focus on it.
We have to identify the “problem” we are having with health, wealth, or wisdom, etc. (again I don’t believe in “problems” so from here on I’ll use the words: “opportunity” or “situation”), to be able to move ahead. Since we are speaking specifically about health, what is your situation with your health; would you rate it poor, good, excellent or somewhere in between? Have you had a check up lately? We have to know where we are before we can move to where we want to be. If we see that the situation is that we do indeed have poor health, it is up us to improve it. We need to take the measures within our means to correct course. We may need to visit a doctor and get a professional view, take counsel, and adjust our course of living to modify and make ourselves better. May people see a health professional but do not heed the advice. This is surely a mistake. Seek professional counsel and then add to this with a positive affirmation such as repeating “I am healthy” several times in the morning, noon, and at night before retiring. The Bible is full of affirmations (and power) so choose a verse that applies to your health situation, and stand firm on it, and repeat it daily as above. Another affirmation is: “God in the midst of me is mighty in life, health and strength; I claim life, health and strength.” You can create you own!
I must always remind you that simply affirming something, without taking the action to correct course, will not take your ship to your harbor of choice. Today I hope I got you actively thinking in that direction. When you think about something long enough (focus), you will eventually do everything to make things happen. Affirmations can be your power to go forward. When you affirm things, you use words, words have power. Your affirmations get the “universe” to remove obstacles and line up events with your goals to assist you; this is called “faith”.
