If I could reduce the ten best self-help books to ten ideas, these, I believe, would be everyone's favorites: Go to bed at 10 every evening Have a solid 7 to 8 hours of sleep daily Drink at least half a litter of lukewarm water first thing in the morning, best before getting up. (This purifies your bodies system like nothing else does. You could keep a thermos bottle by your bed for this.) Read at least one quality book every two weeks. You ...

WELCOME TO ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE SERIES

by Neil Meyers Arts and Entertainment, Book Reviews, Writing and Speaking
It was over four years ago while writing a few ideas in my journal one evening, suddenly, as of its own, a novel began to emerge. I was merely illustrating a simple point when the point turned into an allegory and then the allegory turned into someone's complex dream. It was ALIVE!  Prior to this, I had no thought or intention of ever writing a novel. And now as I complete the first book while continuing to edit the remaining three titles in ...

GRATITUDE AND HUMILITY Last Wednesday, I became the most viewed author on this platform.  I was on a low point at the time due to my current challenges, and so I thanked Almighty God in advance, for sending me some encouragement.  When I clicked on to the web page and saw that I was at the top of the list, it was just the lift that I needed and thanked for.  In fact it lifted me so high, that I smile ...

REMEMBER THE TITANS I watched a fantastic film this afternoon called 'Remember the Titans'.  Denzel Washington, who I think is a marvellous actor, played the leading role of an American Football coach at high school level.  The film is essentially about racism in the south of the U.S.A in the 1970's, and depicts the qualities of this ground breaking head coach.  I won't go into the details of the film, in case you haven't seen it. In spite of the experiences of ...

LOOKING AFTER OUR WONDERFUL PLANET We are all so blessed to be living on a planet, so rich in resources, that we have everything that we need and want.  The abundance of resources is far too many to list here, however we need to look after our wonderful planet, so that we do not run out of those resources, especially considering our increasing population size. I believe that I became more environmentally conscious after I became a father.  Up until then, I ...

CHANGE First of all, my heart felt condolences to all those affected by the massacre that took place at the weekend.  I am glad to read about the strength and solidarity being displayed by the people of Sutherland Springs. I wonder how long we are going to experience or hear about this type of atrocity.  Surely something has to change with regards to the gun laws and/or the gun controls.  This was yet another example of a person who was either mentally ...

SIR RICHARD BRANSON Sir Richard Branson is the founder of the Virgin Group, which controls over 400 companies.  He is an investor and philanthropist, who goes against the grain.  I have such respect and admiration for what he does and what he stands for, that I want to dedicate an article to him. Branson started as a business entrepreneur at just 17 years of age.  Now at 67, he has been in business for 50 years and says that he is still ...

YOU ARE MORE BLESSED WHEN YOU GIVE THAN WHEN YOU RECEIVE

by Teoda Walker Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement, Book Reviews, Communications, Writing and Speaking
Whether you agree or not GIVING IS BETTER THAN RECEIVING! I know a majority of people have grown to believe that you are blessed when you receive but this is a wrong belief as much as it may sound logically true. So what is receiving? Receiving is to be given something and you can either earn it or just get it as a present. This means that the receiver is at the mercy of the giver and in case the giver changes his or her mind and choose ...

CIGARETTE BREAKS I've just read an interesting article reporting about a company in Tokyo Japan, that has just given its non-smoking employees, 6 extra days off to compensate for cigarette breaks.  The new policy was introduced in September and is aimed at compensating for the 15 minutes taken for each cigarette break. It was believed that cigarette breaks were causing a problem, and so one of the employees wrote a message in the company suggestion box, which was seen by the C.E.O ...

THE BEST INVESTMENT The best investment you can make is in yourself.  Your own education, your own health and your overall personal development.  There is a saying that states 'ignorance is bliss', however this is a complete lie.  The worst thing to live your life in, is ignorance.  Ignorance leads to sin, unnecessary sickness and a premature death. EDUCATION - Investing in your own education is the smartest thing that you can do.  Knowledge of yourself and how your mind works, is ...

INTERVIEW

by Neil Meyers Arts and Entertainment, Book Reviews, Writing and Speaking
Author Interview Press Release, June 19, 2017 What inspired you to write this novel? I had no intention of writing a novel or novels. I was just journaling some of my philosophical ideas over a couple of months. I thought the ideas to be rather boring so I asked my muses for some illustrations and a little humour to lighten things up. Immediately I got an allegory that turned into someone's dream. Much to my surprise, I suddenly was writing a ...

DRIVER:  Ok, go ahead.  They want twice as much as that at the garage. A man asks a farmer near a field, "Sorry sir, would you mind if I crossed your field, instead ...

BALANCE My wonderful 11 year old son Theodore, absolutely loves playing computer games.  I'm sure that if it was up to him, he probably wouldn't do anything else.  I sometimes find myself getting worried about the amount of time he spends playing the games, I then remind myself of how I was at his age.  I too absolutely loved playing computer games, however I was madly keen on sports too, so my level of physical activity was very high. I was born ...
