In reading the fourth and final verse of Thinking by Walter D Wintle I’m reminded of two stories which I remember from childhood, The Little Engine that Could and The Tortoise and the Hare. We may think of these as children’s books and they are but they are also adult’s books and we should we them to ourselves once in a while to be reminded of, and to use the wisdom of the pages. We can also read stories of great battles won and lost, either real battles fought or those battles that we all have and must conquer in the social, emotional, physical, recreational and financial areas of life.
The Little Engine that Could (you can download a free pdf* at my webpage and read it to yourself and the children in your life) is a marvelous story of hope and victory.
I just took a moment to read it again, using emphasis of the words as if I were reading it for the first time and to my children as I remember doing when they were growing up. I must confess that this sentimental being had tears in my eyes when I finished. My eyes watered because I know of people who act like the indignant engines who say “no” today when they could easily help those in need and because I am deeply moved by others who think they are unworthy, who think that they do not have what it takes in talents and skills but give it their best shot and later rejoice with those who are involved in being victorious; just as the little engine and the toys in the story!
Then we read about the Tortoise and the Hare. (You can get a free pdf* of this also at my webpage). The story speaks of persistent and consistent effort and although a runner may not be the fastest (or strongest), he (or she) who stays in the race (and also thinks they can; thinks they can) will ultimately “win” the race!
Thinking by Walter D Wintle
Verse 4 of 4
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!
There are plenty of "successful" people who have achieved their successes later in life. Most people know about the Colonel of the KFC chain, and Grandma Moses. Sometimes I wonder if I've achieved my success later in life because I read and knew about these late in life achievers; maybe I should have read more "early earners" success stories!
Regardless your age; young or younger, I suggest that you heed the wisdom in the two children/adult stories I shared today and remember that the person who wins is truly the man or woman who THINKS THEY CAN!
PS. Sometimes we do not achieve what we want is because we have things in our lives that take our precious time. Many of these things are important such as providing for our family and spending time with our family. But life happens. As a coach (in the Life and Legacy areas of life and of course here as your Attainment Coach) I work with people who suffer when "life happens". Because many people have instances where they need legal help (and I.D. Fraud protection) and can't afford the usual high fees of attorneys, I offer a solution. PLEASE CLICK HERE for details.

“Before you open your mouth, open your mind”. Ter Scott, 12/15/15
Today I will speak about your mind (thinking) and the words of your mouth (speaking). Plus, I will share how to “utter” the words of the Major 8 to have them become the “outer” in your life!
I was recently listening to Catherine Ponder as she expressed in one of her Dynamics of Prosperity talks and I took note of a few things. She explained how people don’t succeed and/or “prosper” because first, they “don’t open their mind to prosperity”. I’ll speak more on that here and elsewhere.
A second point I will make today is that you can succeed when others are speaking lack, etc. why? (As a matter of fact, you must succeed; it is your responsibility!). Because they are speaking lack! And, if you are honest with yourself, have also joined in with their conversation of lack and non-prosperity. When someone says that he has “more month at the end of the money”, “not getting enough money in his check”, the “economy is bad” etc. that is “lack talk” and you should have no part in it. Must you know everything that is on the news in the newspaper; on the TV, radio or Internet? Are you one that even goes to sleep with the radio or TV on which pours more negative “news” and “lack talk” into your subconscious?
“We need to have a “lack talk” intolerance.” – Ter Scott, 12/15/15
KEY POINT: You can help in avoiding getting involved in the “lack talk” of gloom and doom; either in conversation or via the “media” that is around you, but that isn’t always easy. Since we “live” in this world, this negative will always surround us. So to counteract this you and I need to SPEAK words of prosperity! And, we need to speak more than we hear and see of all the “lack talk” that surrounds us. I remember Catherine Ponder stating that she had read somewhere that for every 15 minutes of positive words we read, we need to speak positive words for 5 minutes.
You may read words of prosperity (good books, and materials). You may listen to words of prosperity (audio products). You may even, with visuals like The Secret and other videos, watch words of prosperity. But unless you are SPEAKING WORDS OF PROSPERITY it won’t happen (or happen in a big enough way).
The answer is in your words and in the action of the “saying” of your own(ership)* words and how you say your words.
Today I will not tell you how to speak your words because my point here is that you need to “speak” your words and to do so frequently.
Yes, “open” your mind. Today I ask you to open your mind …to the “Major 8”.**
Turn you thinking to plenty and you’ll have plenty.
I always remember a funny story my friend Zig Ziglar would tell his audiences. “I always knew I had plenty as a kid. Because when I’d asked for seconds at the dinner table, mom would tell me “no”, you’ve had plenty”.
Today, this week and from this time forward, I want you to prosper in all areas of your life. So I want you to confess it, I want you to say with your words: “I have plenty”.
Now please understand that this is only a start; to say, “I have plenty”. Many of my readers may have already been stating “I have plenty”, but you must be “specific”.
By stating that you have plenty in all areas of your life will ensure that you will have balance in all areas of your life. Would you like that? Balance has a serendipity of its own, in that if you are balanced in one area, it will show that you are out of balance in another and this will help you to get in balance; pretty cool huh? (I hear some of my readers saying, “maybe”).
So, you have read this far; now you need to act.
Remember we’ve already discussed that you probably have read words of abundance, and prosperity (along with watching and hearing) but this probably hasn’t gotten you where you want to be, right? OK, thank you for your honesty. So I encourage you to do the following action steps.
I have created a “Statement of Prosperity” that will ensure a balance of prosperity and abundance in all areas of your life because it is based on the Major 8**. Write this (the act of writing is also good, so don’t simply copy and paste, and click “print”) on a 3x5 card and … actually read them out loud, yes speak them OUT LOUD, 3 times each day. (You can certainly be alone when you do so). Here is your Statement of Prosperity.
Statement of Prosperity
I have plenty in all areas of my life.
I have plenty in the area of good health.
I have plenty of good food.
I have plenty of restful sleep.
I have plenty of money for all of my needs
and the needs of those around me.
I have plenty of good life experiences
and have “plenty” in all areas to the point that
I am confident I’ll leave abundance
for my children’s children.
I have complete satisfaction in my area of sexuality.
There is plenty in the well-being of my children
and all those that I cover with my love.
I have plenty of respect
and feelings of importance;
I am prosperous, loved and love,
and I am important!
If you would like an 8 by 10 copy of the “Statement of Prosperity” that you can print, frame and display, request yours free by request at www.terscott.com/response.
Also, I am scheduling my appearances and talks for the next 12 months. If you are interested in having me speak for your group, please contact me; you may find that it is more reasonable than you think. I will travel anywhere around the world to bring this message.
Best of continued success!
*For those of you who do not know what the Major 8 is, it’s a list of the main areas of desires and needs by most people. When you have balance in all areas of the Major 8, you’ll have balance in your life. For more information on the Major 8 I invite you to contact me.
**Anytime you say, use or read the word: “own”, think ownership and take responsibility; “own” it!

Ter Scott! Attainment Coach
If you can believe for $20,000, you can believe in having your own business of helping others and making $150K+ every year for the rest of your life!
THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE... YOU'LL NEED $20,000 TO JOIN US.
If you have $20,000 or can find it, can partner with someone, make payments or listen to us and learn ways for "creative funding" then continue reading. If you think that "money is the problem" you can stop reading this and read about some of the past or future articles; you'll find something that "fits" you and your wants and needs.
Here goes; fasten you seat belt and hang on!
No BS here. If you are serious about making money, it doesn’t matter if you are white collar, blue collar (or shirtless, because you lost it in some other “deal”) we are equally (and probably more) serious!
We teach you how to make money in real estate PERIOD.
We create real estate investors!
This ad may not be up for long so reply now; even if you have only thought about being an investor, but feel like you can’t do anything “today” but want to put this on your “wish list” and/or your 2016 calendar as a goal for this next year.
- · You don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck.
- · You don’t have to fear retirement or not being able to pay off college loans.
- · You don’t have to care about what your brother or mother in law thinks (I just threw that in there; but it’s true).
There is still a way to have both time and freedom and that’s called “lifestyle” my friend. We are a community of investors and we actually help each other succeed with deals! It’s a fun way to do business.
Bottom line: I’m looking for heavy hitters (well kind of); actually I’m looking for people that are serious. I’m looking for people who are ready to plunk down $100,000 to $500,000 on a franchise and then I will tell them “NO”!!! You don’t need to mortgage your first born to get started in something that works!
My son has a $50,000 college bill to pay for his education and he’s not even doing what he went to school for! (How many of us have heard a similar story?) Our school is a one-time charge without continual up-sells (like real estate investing “gurus”; they have their place and many are nice people; I’m just saying that our business model is different; and it gets results)!
Invest $20,000, just one time, to know how to do things “right” so you’ll be an “ASSET” instead of a liability in our team. And then let’s do deals and travel the world together.
I know this is not for the brave of heart. You won’t read a lot of ads like this but the time is now! It’s never been better to be a real estate investor and there’s never been a time like this when so many people need help financially (just think how a check for $10,000 to $40,000 or more each month could help you, your family and those you know and love).
Please if you have to work for others or feel like you need a boss to get a paycheck, etc. etc. don’t reply to this ad; I’ll just have to wish you a great life when we speak on the phone. If you need an “attitude adjustment”, I understand, I was just like you and I wasted over a year “thinking” about this. My suggestion is to save this ad, read some books like Secrets of The Millionaire Mind or The Success Principles, and then contact me.
This opportunity is for real leaders; people who understand that one needs to invest money in education, people who don’t ask “How much is it” but asks “How much will I make”. This is for people who have thrown $20,000 (and maybe a whole lot more) down the toilet on other things and do not have anything to show for it. Sometimes “failure” like this is the best lesson. So if this has happened to you and you became “better” and not “bitter” check this out.
Reply with your full name, phone number and email address. Any replies without this tells me that you did not read this entire ad and/or that you can’t follow directions which equal: “not coach-able”.
We will not respond so I’ll offer you now, best wishes for your life. I sincerely mean that friend.
