How to Really Get What You Want--No Joke!

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

A smile can change your brain and lots of smiles can change it a lot!

The only source of knowledge is experience. Albert Einstein

Some people think they can just read a book and voila! They know. 


In nearly every walk of life, the real teacher is experience. It's in the doing. 

Whether you're a lawyer or a brick layer, in order for you to be a fount of wisdom and knowledge in your field, you must go beyond the classroom or the lecture or the online courses. You must do the work. To become your best, step out and make the mistakes, learn from them, do it again, only this time, you won't spill the milk so easily.

That's what makes you the expert. Experience.

Same in our walk with Spirit.

Your Words Have Power

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

"Give light and the darkness will 
disappear of itself." Erasmus

Sometimes we look for the Light, when in fact, we ARE the Light. 

As I write, fires of great magnitude have been raging in Northern California USA for some time now. Thousands of homes and businesses have gone up in flames. But most important, several dozen lives have been lost. 

Out of all the chaos, stories of heroes are emerging. From firefighters saving people to animals finding their owners and leading them to safety. 

So it goes with most disasters. From fires to storms to earthquakes to war. Heroes emerge.

We mere mortals cannot control nor escape the calamities that come with being part of the living community on Planet Earth. Still, we have an amazing gift. We can often become our very best during the height of madness. We can and do find strength and courage we never knew we had. 

Imagine, then, how much power you can bring to your ordinary and daily life. You have it within you to save the world from catastrophe. It should be easy then to create a magnificent life in your day to day experiences. That is...

If you don't talk yourself out of it.
