"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 entirely too long since I've been in touch. I did not want to wait a day longer to write all of you to thank you for your best wishes and prayers during the time I've been "off the radar".

I do not worry too much about health situations (at least, not in the past few years) and yet, with all I know and do, I had pneumonia for the second time. It is sometimes difficult to understand why these things happen. But, when they do, there is always (or almost always) a deeper meaning.

That illness set me back in my work for almost two months. But, the work is still there and the world continues to turn on its axis and the sun also rises. It brought to mind some words a yogi once shared with me. He said, "At times, it doesn't matter what you do, and at times, it doesn't matter what you don't do."

Sometimes we work too hard, push too hard, take care of the entire world and neglect our own selves. That, in my opinion is just as bad as doing nothing and caring about nothing or no one. For harmony, peace and success, balance is necessary.

I'm sorry I have not been able to keep in touch. I have written very, very few emails and taken very few phone calls. The slightest physical effort still drains me of energy. But I am doing fine and it's only a matter of time and perspective before I'm "on my feet again", so to speak.

I am grateful to all of you and miss you all. Many times, I wish you lived next door so I could run over and have a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy your company. But, then again, as an old friend, Richard Bach, once wrote, "There's no such place as far away." You are as close to me as a thought.

Have a wonderful day and may your paths always be blessed.

Peace, joy and love,


Thank you. Now on to the newsletter.


"You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however."
-Richard Bach

"Having the world's best idea will do you no good unless you act on it. People who want milk shouldn't sit on a stool in the middle of a field in hopes that a cow will back up to them."
--Alfred Adler


A John Harricharan Article

I have a bad habit… actually, a number of them. But I won't bore you with the entire list. I just want to discuss one that I believe many of us have. If we would try to correct it, our lives and businesses would become much more productive.

You see, the habit I speak of is a very common one-- the one where we try to learn everything about the problem, then proceed to do nothing. Let me explain. Among my other interests, I have some Internet businesses. In order to learn more, I buy every book or audio about web businesses and yet, many times, do very little with the information I've bought.

There are reasons for this. But, on closer examination, many of those reasons are simply excuses. The trick is to do something with what you've got, to take action. There is no guarantee that you'll succeed if you try, but you'll definitely not succeed if you do nothing.

Many people consult with me about their problems. They call from all over the globe. Do you know what is the greatest block to their success? The fear of taking action.

Still worse, they expect things to happen without taking any steps to assist the process. They look for some outside force to change their lives without they, themselves, becoming personally involved.

I am reminded of the story about the man who went to church every day to pray. His only prayer was "Dear God, please let me win the lottery." One day, in deep prayer, he was explaining to God the good things he'd do with the money if he won. Suddenly, a deep voice filled the entire church. "Give me a break, Jake," it said, "Buy a ticket."

And so it is with us. If we want to succeed, we must do something about it. We must take action and participate in our own life. The many resources are useless unless I use them. It used to be that I'd try to learn everything I could about how to get my web business up and running. Then I'd sit around and wonder what it is I should do, or if I could do it right.

I'd hope that something magical would happen and that tens of thousands of visitors would come to my web site. But it didn't work that way. It was only when I actively started using what I had learned and maintaining an attitude of success that things started to work.

Yes, my business runs vary well now. Yet I am sure there is still room for improvement, but it's nothing like it used to be. We have to do something with what we have. The secret is not to just become information collectors, but to act on the information.

I heard the story of a preacher who was walking through an overgrown area of wild brush, thorns and weeds. It certainly wasn't the best place for farming. All of a sudden, he came upon this beautiful farm and saw the farmer working in the distance.

He walked over to the farmer and commented, "Brother, what a beautiful farm the good Lord has given you."

Wiping the sweat from his brow, the old farmer looked up at the preacher, smiled and replied, "Reverend, you should have seen it when the good Lord had it."

We must take what we have and add some action to produce the results we desire ... and not only action, but spirit and enthusiasm. This is the way of our relationships, our finances and businesses and even our very lives. We can transform them all by taking right action. Think, but do not get trapped in the process of thinking. Analyze, but don't get caught in the "paralysis of analysis."

Take action. Do something with what you have. All of us have talents and abilities that are unique. But those same talents and abilities will get us nowhere if we spend a lifetime wondering about them. Take action. Take the step today. The rest will follow.


"Ideas have a short shelf life - that's why we must act before the expiration date."
--Andrew Carnegie

"The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other finds an excuse."
--Sir John Marks Templeton

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must -- but don't you quit

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow --
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is the failure turned inside out --
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt --
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit --
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.


"I'm hardnosed about luck. 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

"The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and
doing something. It's as simple as that. A lot of
people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do
something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week.
But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer."
--Nolan Bushnell, Founder of Atari Computer

Anita Bergen's book, "Life and Other Options" is one you'll want to read and reread as often as possible. It has quotations and affirmations for every event in our lives.

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
