I've thoroughly enjoyed the past week in which we've revisited Andy Andrews and his book The Travelers Gift in celebration of the upcoming release of his new book Mastering the Seven Decisions.
And of course, it means we've concluded our Inspired Abundance contest. The vast majority of people preferred to email me their comments. So what I'm going to do is post the submissions of each of the five winners.
Congratulations to the contest winners:
Congratulations to each of the winners. I have a hard cover copy of Andy Andrews Mastering the Seven Decisions ready to send to you. I will be sending you an email requesting your shipping address.
A note to Rosemarieywg ... I do not have your email address or contact information. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details so I can send your book out to you.
Now, let's look at a couple of the email submissions today.
Maxine Pich had this to say:
Thomas Edison has stated, " Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up".
Every business has its peaks and valleys. Economic trends, business cycles, and what people want more or less of at different times are, for the most part, out of our control. What we can control, in both our attitude and our approach to our business, is to maintain a state of "persistence".
People who rise to the top in business do not allow themselves to get caught up in the roller-coaster ride of other people's emotions. They keep "doing the thing" with a sense of purpose or persistence. Children are an excellent example of persistence in action!

And Mario Adel submitted this comment:
This book is really amazing and a must read inspirational genius. Absolutely, because life is a matter of choice. As I always believe, our future depends on us, our success depends on our actions, persistence, and our choosing. One must be determined, focused and willing to pay to the price for attaining success of his GOAL.
Thanks to both of you for your comments. You both reference persistence in your comments and, as Andy Andrews points out in his book, it's the degree of willingness to persist without exception that tends to separate people.
Well done and thanks again for your comments.
Tomorrow I will be back and will profile another winning entry about Andy Andrews and the seven decisions that determine personal success as described in his book The Travelers Gift. And if you haven't done so yet, go ahead and buy a copy of his new book, Mastering the Seven Decisions. It's well worth it.
