"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.

Dear Reader:

It is unbelievable, at least for me, that half of the year is already gone. Time seems to move so quickly, but I am reminded of the statement made by Austin Dobson, who said, "Time goes, you say? Ah no! Alas, Time stays, we go." That's how it seems these days.

I do not write my newsletter as often as I used to because, I think, many of my readers never get to read some of the important information I send out. Still I keep sending it out to you so that, perhaps, an article, a statement, a piece of information may catch your eye and lead you into beautiful paths of peace, joy and success.

Read the article, "Just Five Minutes Longer." You may find that it provides that extra bit of energy you need to conquer frustrations and overcome difficulties.

Make sure you check out the two important announcements under the section called, "Some Important Information." I generally only make one announcement, if any, but these two are so important that there was no way I could leave either one out.

During the summer, I'll be traveling again, starting with The Caribbean. After I return, I'll be home for a little while before I hit the road again, probably to Southeast Asia.

By the way, some of you have asked if I am on FaceBook. Yes, you can find me there if you want. If you are on FaceBook and would like to join my list of friends, it would be great to have you in the group.

Thank you. Now on to the newsletter.


"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."
--Dale Carnegie

"God helps those who persevere."


A John Harricharan Article

The story has been told and retold countless times about the battle of Waterloo. Poems have been written and songs have been composed detailing every conceivable aspect about it. The English tell it one way and the French share it from a slightly different point of view.

History and legend has it that after Napoleon Bonaparte's army was defeated and the Duke of Wellington prevailed over the French, Napoleon was taken away and imprisoned. One day a group of newspaper reporters came to visit. They had obtained permission to hold an interview with the famous French general, Napoleon Bonaparte.

Even though Napoleon was in prison, he carried himself with dignity and looked with piercing eyes at the group of reporters gathered there before him. Questions were asked and answers given. The reporters wrote every word down. This would, indeed, be good reading. They would boast to their children and grandchildren how they stood before the great general on that long ago day.

Suddenly, from the back of the room, a voice, somewhat more gentle than the others was heard above the din. "Mon general," the reporter said, "Tell me why the English won at Waterloo. Did they have a superior army?"

"No!" replied Napoleon.

"Well, did they have better weapons?" asked another reporter.

"No!" was the answer again.

Then the first reporter asked, "Why then, Mr. General, did the English win?"

Napoleon's eyes slowly swept across the room. The silence was so deep that it was almost deafening. You could have heard the proverbial pin drop. Then he replied, "The English fought five minutes longer." From the mouth of the great general himself came the answer, "The English fought five minutes longer". Many times, five minutes longer is all that it takes. Times have changed from the days of the Emperor Napoleon. But many things still remain the same.

Sometimes victory is just a few minutes away. Yes, I know, we all go through terrible times. In today's world many of us are faced with crisis after crisis. For most, there is never enough money, no jobs, poor relationships, ill health and the list could go on and on. Of course, there are good times, too, but the hard times usually block our vision of the good times.

When things get really bad, we turn this way and that looking for some help or at least some hope to keep on keeping on. Anything will do--a kind word from a friend, a paragraph from a good book, a stray piece of music from the radio, even a Hollywood movie.

Some people will be there for you, others will turn and run from you, fearing for their own well-being. Still others may throw you some crumbs of money, or food and hope you won't ask for more. Be grateful. They do as they see fit to do at the moment. Your job is to just keep on keeping on.

When you are down in the arena and the dust is in your mouth and you can hear the screaming of the crowd, remember, "The English fought five minutes longer." Sometimes it's so bad that one day at a time is too long. So go one hour at a time. And if that's too long, then how about five minutes at a time?

Success is sometimes just yards or minutes away. There are times when the last few yards may seem like miles and the last few minutes may appear to be hours. But if you keep on keeping on, if you do not let hope die, if you have faith in the goodness of the universe and the Force that created us, you will win in the end.

Why did Napoleon lose to the English at the Battle of Waterloo? The English simply fought five minutes longer.


"Three failures denote uncommon strength. A weakling has not enough grit to fail thrice."
--Minna Thomas Antrim

"Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better... or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future."
--Og Mandino


These are two very important announcements. Please read them both:

1) Terri Marie, the author whose lovely Fathers' Day video I sent you as a gift a short while ago told me about her new project called, "New and Old Masters of Spirituality." It just happens that I personally know some of the people she talks about and I definitely can vouch for many of them.

I strongly suggest that you visit her website at:


I won't give you the names of the new spiritual masters here, but will let you find them for yourself on the website. After all, I won't want to rob you of the thrill of discovery. So please check out that website as soon as you have a chance.

2) She is called, Ninindi. She is from Australia and has touched my heart and soul. No, I have never met her, nor have I ever spoken with her. Yet, she speaks to me often. How, you ask, has she been able to touch my very soul without ever speaking to me? Such are the mysteries of life.

You see, many years ago, Ninindi discovered my work through my newsletters and one of my books called "The PowerPause". She then sent me one of her CD albums. The songs on that album have stayed with me over the years, comforting me at times of sadness, dancing with me in moments of gladness and, overall, inspiring me to greater heights.

Ninindi's songs are always on my iPod and they travel with me near and far. Just last evening I listened to some of her music once again. There is magic there. And there is mystery, too.

Treat yourself to a wonderful gift. Visit Ninindi's website. Get the CD. You'll be happy that you did.

Oh, yes! Just in case you're wondering, I made the recommendations above because I believe they'll help you greatly. I do not receive any money for doing so.

by Jessie B. Rittenhouse

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you've set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have gladly paid.


"I'm hardnosed about luck. I think it sucks. Yeah, if you spend seven years looking for a job as a copywriter, and then one day somebody gives you a job, you can say, “Gee, I was lucky I happened to go up there today.” But dammit, I was going to go up there sooner or later in the next seventy years.... If you're persistent in trying and doing and working, you almost make your own fortune."
--Jerry Della Femina

"Press on: Nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
--Calvin Coolidge --Calvin Coolidge

A few "John Harricharan" quotes

 "You do not really believe what you see. Instead, you actually see what you believe. So, if you do not like what you are seeing, examine your belief systems and make the necessary changes."
---John Harricharan

 "Whatever you see in your mind -- good or bad -- if you believe it with your whole body, mind and spirit, it will come to pass. Creation starts in your mind with your thoughts and imagination… As you think and believe, so it becomes."
---John Harricharan
 "Whenever problems seem to get the best of me, whenever I feel them closing in on me, I go to a quiet place that lies somewhere in my soul. I do not reason, analyze or think. Those will come later. I simply go. From this place of silence, I garner strength and inspiration to stand firm in the face of fire, to be calm in the midst of thunder. When I emerge, the world has not changed, but I have. And in changing, a whole new world is born."
---John Harricharan
