"John, your site has the calm and quiet of still forest glades, of ancient holy places. This essence, this gentle peace, is the spirit you have somehow embodied here. You have taken what appears at first just another house of page-views and crafted it into a chapel of electrons, a refuge where business and other travelers can pause and recharge spiritually. Today's fast-forward world offers so few havens for re-centering ourselves or for re-grounding our spiritual energies. Thanks so much for making this site, John. Its quiet impact will soothe every soul who pauses here."
Charles Burke - Author of "Inside the Minds of Winners" www.sizzlingedge.com

Dear Reader:

It has been such a long time since I sent out a
newsletter. I hope to be more prompt in the future.
Much has happened since my last newsletter to you
months ago. I've completed the entire "Power
Principles" series of teleseminars
and have moved on to new projects.

But even with new projects and an accelerated schedule,
I still want to stay in touch with all of you and bring
you life-affirming articles, quotes, poetry, etc.
Today's article is called, "He Definitely Should Have
Been Committed." Read it and share it with your friends
and family.

The "Resources, Recommendations and Comments" area have
some very valuable information. I only bring you these
recommendations because I have found them helpful and
feel that you will derive great benefit from them.

Am I being paid to recommend those resources to you?
No! Not a penny. Nothing. I just want you to be aware
of them and try them. I, myself, have come upon
beautiful gems of wisdom because someone was caring
enough to point them out to me. Perhaps, you, too, will
be delighted at the recommendations at the end of this

Josh Hinds and Andy O'Bryan extended their promotion
just for readers of my list. Tony Masiello's ebook,
"Whispers from the Universe," whispers ever so gently,
ever so beautifully, the songs of our hearts and souls.

And Jonathan Benson? I finally met Jon in Washington,
D.C. at Yanik Silver's seminar a few weeks ago. He is
much more delightful than I had imagined and I knew
that I had found a fantastic friend. Some of you may
recall that Jonathan Benson and Tom Venuto created the
special ebook called, "Fit Over 40." Well, you should
see what they are doing now! Read about Jonathan's
offer at the end of this newsletter and take full
advantage of his giving nature. He wants you to.

I will write to you more often. This is a promise. I
delight in getting your emails and have tried to answer
as many as possible. Those who haven't heard from me,
either your email got lost in the filters or in my
computer. My apologies. I will keep doing my best to
answer all emails.

Thank you. Now on to the newsletter. The theme for this
issue is "Commitment".

Reading "A Matter of Time" will bring some insights
into centering ourselves in a world, which at times,
calls for a high degree of patience and understanding.
Enjoy the article and share it with your friends.

Please read the rest of this newsletter. Also, make
sure you read the section entitled, "Very Special
Announcements," and also look at the section on
"Resources and Recommendations" where I always share
with you interesting books and information.

Our readership list keeps growing by the day, and every
time I think I will stop writing this newsletter, a
number of new subscribers join and I smile and say to
myself, "Not yet." I welcome all our new readers and am
grateful that you chose to receive and read Insight2000

Thank you. Now on to the newsletter.


"Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and
hopes... but no plans."

-- Peter F. Drucker

"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is
the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to
do when it ought to be done, whether you like it or
not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned;
and however early a man's training begins, it is
probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
-- Thomas Huxley"


A John Harricharan Article

Yes, commitment is what is called for. He never cared
whether a Monday fell on a Friday nor did it matter to
him if it was raining or dry. His motto was, "I am
exactly where I need to be at this time. Just take it
easy, it'll all work out just fine."

I met him many years ago. Let's just call him Tom. We
were in college and he was the roommate of a friend.
But they were so different. My friend wanted something
out of life while Tom thought that life should bring
him all things.

My friend worked hard, studied late hours, focussed on
his dreams and goals and graduated with honors. He was
committed to his success. Tom, on the other hand,
wanted all the good things in life, but didn't have
direction, a plan, a commitment to his future. No one
seems to know what became of Tom. He definitely should
have been committed.

It doesn't matter what it is that you want or are
striving for. To succeed, a high degree of commitment
is necessary. We demand it from others but, most times,
do not ask it from ourselves. How would I like it if
after paying a webmaster my last penny to get my web
site working, he looks at me and says, "You win some,
you lose some. I'll do my best and see what happens.
I'll get it done soon. And when it's done, it will
probably work, but who knows?"

I wouldn't like to see my child lying on the operating
table and hear the surgeon say, "Well, I'll do my best.
You win some, you lose some. What do you expect from
me? I'm like everybody else-- just trying to make a
living. Maybe it'll be successful, but who knows?"

This I know: I want my web master to be totally
committed to our agreement. I want my surgeon to feel
bad if he loses. I want him to be committed to the
well-being of my son. I want my grocer, my airplane
pilot, my friends, my everybody to be committed to what
they are doing. And how about me? Shouldn't I be
committed to my own success and happiness? Well,
sometimes that's a different story, or at least, that's
what I'd like to think.

You see, it's almost always easier for us to see the
fault out there than to accept the responsibility for
our own actions. Many times, it's much easier to blame
others than to commit ourselves to the path of success
and happiness.

Yes, success is not easy. It calls for commitment, for
focus, for hurling yourself toward the thing you love
to do. Sometimes, success asks for blood, sweat and
tears. But failure does not ask, it demands and takes
our blood and sweat and tears. It doesn't matter
whether we are dealing with business problems,
relationship or health issues. The same principles

Commitment does not guarantee success. All it does is
guarantee that you WILL succeed or you WILL fail. On
the other hand, a lack of commitment loads the dice on
the side of failure. Just the other day I heard from my
old college friend. He is enjoying the fruits of

We talked about Tom and wondered what had become of
him. We hoped that he had found something along the way
that he could give his life and passion to. Didn't
matter what it was, a computer expert, a teacher, car
mechanic, astronaut, farmer, whatever. We wished him

Whatever it is that you do, give your heart and mind to
it. Express yourself through your work, your calling,
your vocation. Doesn't matter whether you're seeking
your fortune on the internet or pursuing success on the
outernet-- a sense of purpose and a touch of madness
will bring the world to your doorstep. I have a bit of
the former and lots of the latter. Thus far, with all
its ups and downs, with all it's joys and sorrows, with
all its failures and successes, life's been good. It's
what we make it.


"Until one is committed, there is hesitance, the chance
to draw back. Always ineffectiveness. Concerning all
acts of initiative (and creation), there is one
elemental truth the ignorance of which kills countless
ideas and slpendid plans; that the moment one commits
oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things
occur to help one that would never have otherwise
occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the
decision, raising in one's favor all manner of
unforeseen incidents and meetings and material
assistance which no man could have dreamed would come
his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A John Harricharan Poem

And as I stood upon this speck of dust
And gazed into the Milky Way afar,
The thought of things too strange to understand
Wove webs of wonder, through the things that are.

Yet out through space and time I gazed again,
The marvels of our age to better find.
The silent yearnings of a soul proclaim
The deepest longings of all humankind.

Out there I saw Orion's brilliant belt,
A-glowing with the gift of gods in space,
And deep within a strange, sad feeling felt,
How small this orb, how little is this place.


"Real heroes are those who fall and fail and are
flawed, but win out in the end because they've stayed
true to their ideals and beliefs and commitments."
-- Kevin Costner, Actor and Director

My dear friends, Josh Hinds and Andy O'Bryan, at
AudioMotivation.com ran a special promotion in March
for their "March to Motivation" package. Unfortunately,
because of my travel and other scheduling difficulties,
I did not get a chance to inform you about it. So I got
in touch with Andy and asked if he'd do me the great
favor of making the package available in April to my
readers. He readily agreed. So please rush over to read
about this special package:
