Keep On Keepin' ON!

It may be raining outside, but I'm smiling inside! - DLee - Pembroke, Georgia, USA

(After receiving Affirmation #2)

Hi Sunny!

It may be raining outside, but I'm smiling inside! Why? Because I just spent 8 hours at the flea market -- and, while I didn't sell very many products, I feel the day was a success because I am doing what I want! (And at the moment, that would be: promoting my business!)

Things just keep looking up, and I am even beginning to get more ideas for my new gift shop! I've had several requests for items I don't carry, so maybe I could specialize in locating hard-to-find items!

Positive thinking experiences I've had include meeting my boyfriend (who I've known for 14 years!), creating the home of my dreams (I purchased an old farm house and am remodeling it), starting my new business in gifts & home decor, paying off my debt (I LOVE saying "I am now debt-free," especially since it took me 15 years to get out of debt!)

Have a wonderful day!
DLee - Pembroke, Georgia, USA

Hi DLee!
Thanks for writing to me a little about yourself.
What a Wonderful Outlook.
You are very much like me.

I'm Happy With Who I Am and With What I Do!

You certainly ARE!
Keep UP!
And Thanks for Letting me Know A Little About You!

Is Your CD Available In Bookstores? - Orchid

Hi Sunny,

Thank you for your emails. I am in the process of taking steps to turn my life into a much more positive; upbeat happier life, it has been a hard life for me, and I do not want to spend the next odd 30/40 years in just mere existence. I have overcome much and considered by many a survivor but want to be more than just a survivor. I want to be the best me I can be, mainly for myself, also knowing that maybe in some small way it may impact others. All unpleasant things happen even as children, for which we have no control, it sometimes takes some of us longer to realize our worth, here is hoping it is not too late for me, and that the other half of my life will be one richly blessed, albeit I consider myself fortunate enough to realize that even though things were hard, it is now up to me to decide how I want the ending to be.

Again thank you for your email and am looking forward to receiving more, also would like to ask if your cd is available in bookstores, for purchase?


Hi Orchid,

It looks like you've removed yourself from my affirmations list,
but I still want to respond to YOU! :)

No, neither of my current CDs are available anywhere but on my website
at this point.

I make it kind of hard to find them.

If they are too expensive for you,
you can get the Mp3 download for about half-price
with NO shipping.

And if that is too technical for you,
you can get 1 year of access to the streaming audio
on your computer for even less than that!

Also, there are PDF lists of them available for the lowest price of all.
And, of course, if you are patient,
you can get them by e-mail for free.

It is definitely NOT too late for you to recognize Your Self-Worth,

Be patient and kind and loving with Yourself, Orchid.
Much Love and Joy To YOU!

Is There Any Hope For Me With Affirmations? -- S, California, USA

Hi Sunny,

I am S. I have 3 children aged 8, 7 and 6. I also have a husband to whom I have been married to for 10 years and has made my life miserable. I very often feel fearful and powerless. He treats me like a door mat. I do not have a credit card and have no financial freedom. Also he is very hot tempered and beats the children for any little fault of theirs. He has also beaten me in the past. What is most disturbing to me is him shouting and verbally abusing the children and beating them. He tells them often that he will smash their face. and if I interfere and tell him not to beat them and be cruel to them he tells me that he will hit me too. Oneday 2 weeks ago, he beat my daughter who was ill that day for not finishing her food in her plate and going to sleep. He actually beat my girl who was sleeping. So I asked him why he is behaving this way and he tells me that if I interfere in this he will smash my face and disfigure me and I said I would call the police. Well, since then he has not spoken to me. He now sleeps in a separate room and the kids have been noticing it too. Since last week, I have been doing some baby sitting for 4 other children and so I am hopeful of making some money of my own. He does not help in any work around the house. Spends hours in front of the computer and TV. I have had enough of this man. But the kids do not want a separation especially because we now live in a new house which has 5 bedrooms and a pool.
Is there any hope for me with affirmations. WRite to me.

There's always hope with affirmations.
Positive thinking opens doors to using your mind to create the conditions in life that you want.
If you have positive thoughts, you can change your circumstances.
However, I don't believe you can change other people.

I do NOT know what is best for you.
I know that for myself I would not tolerate such treatment from a spouse.
I would also remove my children.

When my body or my mind are being abused,
my feet don't stand around.

I know this is easier said than done.
I'm not an expert in the field of abuse - physical or otherwise.
I hope you can get some help - some assistance from someone who is an expert in this.

What do you really want for yourself?
What do you want for your children?
How important is a big house and a pool to you?
How important is freedom and joy and happiness to you?
How important is love and care and tenderness and kindness?

Affirm what you want for yourself and your family.
Much Love and Joy to You and Your Family!

TOP TEN TIPS on How To Market To Your Prospects With Ease, by Sunny Hills, Maui, Hawaii

on: "How To Talk To Your Marketing Prospects
With Ease - Immediately."

1. Always Imagine Their Concerns Before Talking to Them. This is the Secret to Making an Instant
Connection with Your Prospects Even Before You Begin a Marketing Conversation. Try to get inside their head,
put Your heart in their place, try to stand in their shoes. If You were them, what would You be feeling and
thinking? What would Your concerns be today? What questions or thoughts would be in Your mind? Being
"over there" with them, is a HUGE advantage to have, before You even begin ... AND ... it will take the focus and
the pressure off of You. It will begin Your forward momentum.

2. Always Imagine that You are Talking to a Friend. This is the Key to Real Communication in a Marketing
Conversation ... even if it's a complete stranger. Remember that even Your Very Best Friend was once a stranger.
What happened to change that relationship, to help it evolve to what it is today?
What might be possible someday in the future between You and this person that You're talking to now?
If this person were in fact Your Very Best Friend, how would You talk to them?
If You can truly imagine that You are talking to a friend, You won't be "telling" or "selling."
You'll be listening, caring & sharing. Rather than "closing a sale," You'll be "opening a relationship!"

3. Always Begin with an "Attitude of Gratitude." This is the Best Attitude You could possibly have during aMarketing Conversation.
Express how much You appreciate them not only at the beginning of the conversation,
but also in the middle and at the end.
Be sincerely grateful (as You begin) that they have made this time for You ... (in the middle)
that they are sharing their ideas so openly,
and (at the end) for everything nice that has occurred in the conversation,
for their generosity and consideration in speaking with You.

4. Always Ask: "Is this a good time to talk (about this)?"
This is the Most Important Question for You to ask,
before starting any Marketing Conversation
... especially when You're calling someone on the phone,
and even when You're talking to someone in person.
Remember that a phone call is always an interruption.
Asking this question is the courteous thing to do.
Remembering to ask it, will separate You from the crowd,
it will gain You instant respect,
and it will also save You from annoying someone.

5. Always Begin by Asking them What they Want? or What they Think?
This is the Best Way to Begin a Marketing Conversation.
Why not get them talking as soon as You can?
This will not only take the pressure off of You,
but it will tell You a LOT about THEM,
which is the Key to learning exactly HOW You can best serve them.
Doing this is far more important than anything You could possibly say in a prepared script or sales talk.

6. Always Ask Them Their Concerns (Doubts or Misgivings) and then Ask Them What Other Concerns They Have, Before You Tell Them Anything About Your Services or Offerings.
This is the Secret to Learning Exactly What to Say to Any Particular Person
in a Marketing Conversation.
Try to get as many concerns as possible out in the open,
and when You think they've listed them all, then ask them for more!
Rather than being afraid to hear these, welcome them with open arms.
These are Your Guideposts for knowing exactly what to say
to this unique individual.

7. Always WANT for Them, What They Want for Themselves,
and "Let Go" of The Attachment to Getting YOUR Desired Results.
This is the Most Freeing Thing You Can Do For Yourself in a Marketing Conversation.
You aren't there to convince them of anything or to sell them anything.
You're there to help them achieve their desired goals and objectives.
Tell them what You want For them ... AND, sincerely want for them
what they want for themselves.
Simply say: "What I want for You is ... "
By doing this You'll FREE Yourself up to speak openly and candidly,
and they'll appreciate it.
You'll know exactly what to say, when they feel Your sincerity & desire,
they'll want to work with You.

8. Always Ask "What if … ?"
This is the Most Effective Way to Move Them Forward with You,
to the Place Where You Want to Take Them in a Marketing Conversation.
Ask: "What if that concern could be dealt with?"
Ask: "What if that doubt could be addressed?"
or Ask: "What if that misgiving could be handled?"
Use "What if ...?" to help them imagine and feel the results
You're going to help them achieve.
Let them feel and own those results now, in their imagination.

9. Always Ask for What YOU Want, and then "Shut Up" until They Give Their Answer.
This is the One Thing You Must Promise Yourself to ALWAYS DO
in Every Marketing Conversation.
If You've done steps (1) - (8),
then You've set the stage,
and You've earned the right to ask for what YOU want ...
Whether it's for another appointment, for a referral, or for their business.
You truly have their interest at heart,
and now You get to ask for what You want.
Ask it in a short & simple sentence,
and then say nothing until they answer,
no matter how long it takes for them to speak.
Always ask, even if YOU imagine the answer will be no.

10. Always Let Go of Any Attachment to Hearing Them Say "Yes",
and KNOW Deeply ... that IF They Say "No" ... it's NOT about YOU!
This is the Most Effective Way to Keep Your Enthusiasm High
and Your Momentum Moving Forward in a Marketing Conversation.
It's also the Absolute TRUTH!
The most common reason people say "No" is that the timing isn't right for them.
It's about THEM and their lives.
It's NOT about You. You did nothing wrong.
You've EARNED the right to speak Your Truth
and to Ask Your Questions.
Congratulations on doing it!

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
~Sir Winston Churchill.

“If You think You can do a thing … or think You can't do a thing,
… You're right!”

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned From Napoleon Hill’s Book: "Think And Grow Rich"

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned
From Napoleon Hill’s Book:
"Think And Grow Rich"
~By Sunny Hills, Maui, :) CPCC
Certified Professional Co-Active Coach
"The Affirmations Coach" (TM)

Today I Want To Tell You The 3 Most Important Things
I Learned From The Book "Think And Grow Rich"
By Napoleon Hill.
The Reason I’m Telling You This Is Because
I Am An Entrepreneur.
I Wasn’t An Entrepreneur Before Reading That Book.
The Seeds Were Planted By Reading That Masterpiece.

Perhaps You’ve Already Read It.
Perhaps You’ve Planted Your Own Seeds.
Perhaps You Already Are An Entrepreneur.
Perhaps You’ve Already Succeeded Beyond Your
Wildest Dreams.
And Perhaps … You’ve Never Even Given It A Thought.
We All Are In Different Places In This Life.

Back In The Mid 1980’s,
I Was Working In Radio, As A DJ,
And A Program Director For Various
Small & Medium Market Radio Stations.
I Worked Hard.
I Worked Long Hours.
I Got Low Pay.

It Was Fun Work,
But The Day Was Coming
When I Would Be Fired For No Good Reason,
Other Than That The Manager Wanted To Save
His Budget Dollars …
And He Was In Control, Not Me.
He Was A Nice Person.
He Didn’t Mean Me Any Harm.

And Yet, I Was A Victim,
Because I Was An Employee.
Fortunately, I Had Read “Think And Grow Rich”
A Couple Of Years Earlier … The Seeds Were Planted,
And I Was Ready.

When I Walked Out Of That Radio Station,
I Told Myself I Wouldn’t Come Back
Until I Could Buy The Station,
And I Could Call The Shots.
I Would Never Have Been Able To Think That,
If I Hadn’t First Read This Wonderful Book.

What Are The 3 Most Important Things I Learned
From Reading The Book?

1) First, Is That Desire Is The Most Important Thing
You Can Possibly Develop For Yourself,
With Regard To Creating Your Own Reality,
With Regard To Creating Your Business,
With Regard To Creating The Life Of Your Dreams,
With Regard To Creating The Future You Desire.

Knowing What It Is You Desire, And
Developing That Desire Into What Napoleon Hill Calls:
“A Burning Desire”
Is Irreplaceable.

If You Have “A Burning Desire”
You Will Persist.
If You Have A Burning Desire,
You Will Focus.
If You Have A Burning Desire,
You Will Go Beyond Every Challenge
That Comes Your Way.

With Desire, Nothing Is Impossible.
Without It, You’ll Be Easily Dissuaded Off Your Path.

2) The Second Most Important Thing I Learned,
Is To Write Down My Goals,
With A Target Date And A Specific Intention
Of What I Was Going To Offer Of Value,
In Exchange For The Monetary Rewards
And Other Rewards That I Desired
And Wanted To Collect.

Put Down In Writing The Specifics Of Your Plan,
And The Date For Each To Be Accomplished,
And Read That Plan Aloud 3 Times A Day,
If Possible.

Put Your Goals In Writing.
Put Down Your Plan In Writing.
It Doesn’t Have To Be Perfect.

It’s Funny, But When I Looked Back,
Years Later, I Went Back To My Napoleon Hill Book,
And I Found My Original “Definite Chief Aim Statement,”
Which Is What He Calls It – And I Read It.

When I Had Written It, I Didn’t Believe It Was Possible,
And I Was Even Lax, In That I Didn’t Read It Aloud
Three Times A Day, For More Than A Very Few Days.

In Fact, There Was A Long Period Of Time (Years)
That I Hadn’t Even Looked At It.
But The Very Fact That I Had Written It Down
Was So Powerful, That Years Later,
When I Looked Back On It,
I Was Amazed To Find
That Just About Everything I Had Written Down,
Had Not Only Come True,
But That I Had Far Exceeded Everything On That Page.
That Really Blew My Mind, And Opened My Eyes.

3) Third, Have Unbelievable Goals.

Think Big. Think As Big As You Possibly Can.
If You Think Small,
If Your Goals Are Reachable,
You’re Only Selling Yourself Short.
If A Goal Is Believable, It’s Too Small.

If It Is Unbelievable, It’s Going To Pull You Forward,
And If You Remind Yourself Of It,
And Become Familiar With It,
It Will Become Your Friend,
And You Will Achieve Whatever You Write Down.

Or, You’ll Come Close Enough
That You’ll Be Very Happy With The Result.

What Napoleon Hill Says,
His Main Catch Phrase, In My Mind Is:
”Whatever The Mind Can Conceive And Believe,
It Can Achieve.”

I First Read That Statement And Was Skeptical.
Now, Years Later, As I Stand Here In My Condo,
Looking Out Over My Balcony,
From The 6th Floor, Oceanfront,
With A Full Floor To Ceiling Window,
And All I See
Is Beach And Waves, And A Cruise Ship,
And Whales, And Another Island Across The Way,
And A Beautiful Sunny Paradise …
As I Reflect That My Wife And I Live In This Condo,
With No Mortgage,
It’s Completely Paid Off,
And I Have Absolutely No Debts,
And I Have Total Freedom
In What I Do With My Day,
And I’m Still Young Enough To Enjoy This Life,
And Expand My Dreams
And Go For New Vistas, New Horizons.

As I Reflect On Where I Am,
And Where I Came From,
I Want You To Know That These 3 Elements
Of Napoleon Hill’s Think And Grow Rich
Are The Three That Served Me
The Very Best.
… And It’s My Pleasure To Share Them
And Pass Them On To You.
I Hope They’re Helpful.

By The Way,
I Lead A Marketing Program
That Comes From Another One Of My Favorite Books,
Called “Get Clients Now”.

It’s A Very Effective 5-Week Marketing Program,
Which I Still Lead 4 Times Per Year.

It’s Based On The 6 Marketing Strategies For A Service Oriented Business,
AND You Also Learn To Master “The Universal Marketing Cycle.”
