Choosing Your Parents


Whoa there buddy.

Slow down now

It’s not what you think.


First off, let me just say that I love my mom and dad

So let’s just get that out of the way.


This isn’t about them.

I’m talking about what the philosopher Lucius Seneca

Talked about when he was discussing life in his book

On The Shortness Of Life


He basically said that many of us claim

That life is short and that we are not offered enough time

While he makes the case again and again that we

Can transcend time with the knowledge we can gain from

Mentors both living and dead.


You see, if you have capable mentors that you can rely on

Then broham, those trivial things that are sucking up your

Brain space can be unloaded almost immediately.
Mentors like Napoleon Hill, Martin Luther King Jr., and Horace Mann

May have passed, but that only means that you have nonjudgmental mentors

That you can ALWAYS turn to.

I read something from some of the aforementioned thinkers DAILY

Over the past 18 or so months those guys as well as a host of others

Have really helped to change my life by way of changing my thinking



You probably don’t think you have time to read like I do,

And you may be right.

I thought the same thing too until I realized that with each

Passing day, I was becoming the child of these great thinkers and authors

I was inheriting their knowledge, creating a household of the greatest minds

And now I read more than ever because of it.


You may not be ready to “choose your parents”

But you sure can choose a program to help slow the flow of time

By giving you the shortcut to living the good life.

I would like you to consider how much your life may (or may not) have changed

Since you started receiving these daily emails

I know my life’s changed since I started writing them…

I digress.

Pay close attention to what I’m about to say here.

P.S. I don’t know how many of you out there are readers of books

But here’s a free (very LEGAL) copy of Seneca’s book.

It’s got a ton of good nuggets on living the good life.

He’ll teach you how to “control” time with each action and

Gain insight with each mistake.
