I can almost hear them laughing. Who? Our motivational gurus, that’s who. They tell us that all we have to do is think about what we want, and we will receive it. And of course we believe them because, they became successful. But let’s stop and look for a moment, I am going to name a few... Napoleon Hill Anthony Robbins Oprah Winfrey Rhonda Byrnes Joe Vitale They preached the law of attraction, but when you look at their work life, it is one of a workaholic.

Something sparks inside our imagination and an ember begins to glow and before you know it a fire of desire is burning and we are off to the races. We may be tired of looking at our belly and decide to do something about our weight.
