Why Do We Feel Fear?

The greatest shackles we wear in life are those forged by our own fear. Fear is a survival mechanism we use to prevent ourselves from getting hurt or risking ridicule as a result of failure.

We must not try to find escape so we can hide from pain because ultimately, in the end, it will be more painful. Some methods of escape that are used are; narcotics, alcohol, or behavioral attitudes such as; denial, disinterest, indifference or reserved nature.

Instead, becoming more interested and engaged in other people’s lives will lessen the time we spend thinking negatively about our own life. Stay pleasantly busy.

Let’s re-adjust our way of thinking by realizing that failure is not the enemy of success; just the stepping stone to achievement. If we cannot hit our target, then we must adjust our aim so it will be easier to achieve. Remember that failure is not absolute; it is experimental. Everywhere we look in history we witness examples of brilliant people that started off with an idea that failed the first few times until it became a success. The trick is not in witnessing the failure, but in recognizing that perseverance and determination will ultimately destroy fear.

Remember: To fly we must first accept the possibility of falling.

Town of Ajax Public Library Book Launch & Signing was a Success!

I want to take a moment to thank every person that came to the event. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this day so very special for me!  I want to thank my wonderful close friends and family for all their hard work and assistance; Lewis and Amanda Iliadis, Sherine Allison-Sher’s 5 Star Catering, Larry Rosen, Hussain Jaber, Michael O’Connor, James Grant, Cathy Fitzsimmons.  I want to thank the Ajax Public Library for coordinating this event particularly; Cindy Poon, Sarah Dodge, and Nancy Whittington.  Thank you to anyone that couldn’t make it that offered me their support just the same. I could feel your tremendous energy and love!

It was a successful day if I entertained you even a little bit; if I made you cry, or laugh, or helped you in any way. I sold a multitude of books and i hope that you get the same pleasure in reading it as I did in writing it.
Let it inspire you! Think Positive! xo

My Theory on the Subconscious Mind

I wrote “Paradox of Freedom” because I am a fond believer that everyone writes their own story. I am deeply inspired by any book or movie that creates human awareness and self-improvement. I am a principle-centered, problem solver intrigued by mystery of the unknown. That being said, I have always been intrigued by the two most complex topics in the world: grey brain matter and dark universe matter; both being an ominously divine language.
My theory is that grey matter is our subconscious mind which links with dark matter reaching the divine intervention only when we request it. The subconscious mind is the bridge between the mind, body and soul. If we can use this phenomenon to its full capacity, we can achieve all our desires to improve our circumstances along with optimum health and happiness. We can attain this by planting positive rewarding thoughts and actions into our subconscious mind which I show you in my book. We have the power to create the life that we want to live. Positive feeds off of positive which in turn can only bring about more of that optimism.
