This article is about a brand new book called
"Success is a State of Mind" (available at") and it is a compilation of interviews of people who have made a difference in the lives of others. Each person has a unique way of interpreting success....and we have all the resources of being successful.

I have had the privileged of being selected to join Deepak Chopra, Les Brown and Mark Victor Hansen among other authors/speakers who have also participated in this meaningful book.

"If you think success is measured in wealth,

fame, or possessions, you may never attain

it. If, however, you think that there is more

to success than what can be measured in

transitory terms, you’re right! Success does

not have easily defined boundaries. It’s as

varied as those who attempt to define it.

Find out what some of the most successful

people believe about success in this

remarkable book, Success is a State of Mind.

You will learn elements that are critical

to your success journey such as good

communication, how to conquer fear, how to

break out of “business as usual,” and how to

become unstoppable.
