You Are Here To Enrich The World

"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget that errand." - Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States


A lot of people ask me how I got into such a unique profession, how this form of communication got started, how our products got their start.

As we all regularly should, toward the end of 1996, I asked myself the question, what do I want to do with the rest of my life?

For me, it wasn't unlike the situation that Tom Hanks' character in the 1999 movie, 'The Green Mile' was faced with.

To see the similarity, you need some background:

The bulk of the story takes place in 1935, during the Depression, in a southern maximum-security prison. Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is the head guard on death row... the last mile.

John Coffey is a new prisoner convicted of raping and murdering two young girls - sisters. He was sentenced to die in the electric chair.

The thing is, he was innocent.

John wasn't retarded, but if his IQ were measured on a standard test today, it would probably be very low. He was black, nearly 7 feet tall, and easily weighed over 300 pounds. He was found sitting on a small riverbank with both girls in his arms, screaming over and over, "I tried, but I couldn't take it back."

So he didn't exactly get a fair trial.

But what made the story so incredible was John's special gift...

He had the ability to heal other people. He performed literal miracles. He would take a person's infection or disease into his own body and then eliminate it by opening his mouth, and what looked sort of like black flies would fly out by the thousands and dissipate. He even brought a dead mouse, 'Mr. Jingles', back from the dead.

The process completely exhausted him temporarily, but the person (or mouse) would be completely healed.

When he was found with the girls, he was trying to tell people that he tried to bring the girls back to life, but he "couldn't take it back."

Learning of John Coffey's gifts, benefiting from them personally and witnessing other healings, Paul Edgecomb went into John's cell a couple days before his scheduled execution and had the following dialog:

"John, tell me what you want me to do... you want me to take you out of here... just let you run away and see how far you can get?"

John replied, "Why would you do such a foolish thing?"

Paul answered, "On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and he asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I going to say? That it was my job?"

John answered back, "You tell God, the Father, that it was a kindness that you done... I know you're hurtin' and worryin'. I can feel it on ya. But you ought to quit on it now. I want it to be over and done with. I do. I'm tired, boss. I'm tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. I'm tired of not having anybody to be with to tell me where we's goin' to, comin' from or why."

He continued, "Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I'm feeling in the world. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?"

Paul could do nothing to change this.

So it was done... and he had to live with that for the rest of his life.

I was faced with a similar question.

A decade after I created the first audio tapes that changed me and changed what I was able to manifest in my life, I ultimately recognized it as a tool that could potentially help millions change their destinies in so many ways.

So ten years after my own metamorphosis, the work began.

And 6 years later, is the most popular self-help product site on the planet.


Because the products work. And because I believe in you.

In working with people all over the world, I believe more firmly than ever in the ability in each of us to create the lives we want and enrich the world in the process, as president Wilson said.

John Coffey wanted to quit. Circumstances made it nearly impossible for his life to improve or for him to use his gifts to help those who needed them the most.

But that isn't you. And that isn't me. You may hide from them, but you probably have many more choices than you think.

My purpose now is to empower others so that they can create a continual process of growth in the world. It's working.

Remember, everything you do will ring in eternity. When you have a bad day, people could be affected by that for many centuries to come.

So you owe it not only to yourself, but also to the future of your family, your friends and the entire human race to grow and share all your gifts.

Maybe your gifts and skills are modest, but to hide them, to not develop and share them, whatever they are would be a great tragedy.

Six years ago, I wondered how I could live with myself if I didn't do what I felt would improve the lives of so many.

I knew I couldn't.

Take time to reflect today and regularly on what your life could mean expanded out over the decades and centuries.

No matter how much or how little time on earth you have left, you can be a great contributor and potentially a catalyst for positive change around you... and thus around the world, possibly for centuries to come.

So when you are ever tempted to feel bored or uninspired, chew on that for awhile. It should get your juices flowing.
