What is the YOU?

As you read these words...

you hear a voice in your head; this is the YOU. The part of you that does your thinking; that is the YOU. Typically you will have 60,000 thoughts in a day; this is the YOU at work. In effect, there is another person inside of you. This other, the YOU, knows all of your innermost secrets, desires, fears, wants, needs, and your feelings. The YOU knows everthing about you. You spend more time interacting with the YOU then with any individual. The YOU is at work while you work and while you sleep.


The YOU in you

Every individual possesses a specific talent that resides within them. There is very little that separates highly successful people from those that are not. The content on this blog takes you through a "life process" that allows you to unleash what you already have--The YOU in you.

This blog is dedicated to individuals that want to unleash the power that resides within the YOU.

Everyone possesses a specific talent; but, only a small percentage of individuals recognize the talent within and unleash it. When I say the word talent most people immediately think of professional athletes, musicians and others that are recognized nationally or internationally for their talent. But I use the word talent in a much different sense. The ability to be the best worker in your work place requires talent and the unleashing of the YOU. The ability to bring happiness into the lives of others requires talent and the unleashing of the YOU. The ability to be happy, productive in life, to bring joy, or to help others requires the unleashing of the YOU.

There is very little that seperates the "boss" from the workers that he manages. There is very little that seperates the happily married couple from the couple that divorces. And, there is very little that seperates you from me. The thing that does seperate the successful from the frustrated, the happy from the sad, the doers and achievers from the wanna be's is the YOU.

Understanding and unleashing the YOU in you will allow you to lead a rich and rewarding life.

Let me introduce you to the YOU in you.
