The Circle is Complete – Two New Books by J.D. Bloodstone Now Available!

I had always planned on writing a follow-up to Think & Grow Balls!, but I didn’t know that it would be six years before I wrote it.  To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure when I was going to write it… I just knew that there was more to say on the topic… much more.  But, as with a lot of people, the last six years have been rough and I was too busy “righting the ship” to collect my thoughts long enough to sit down and compose a book.  The positive side of this experience has been twofold.  First, I was able to test out a lot of my own theory to prove to myself, once again, that my philosophy works, and with it, I was able to accomplish what I set out to do while facing several significant obstacles.  Second, I was able to come up with enough new information that what was supposed to become one book became two.  Napoleon Hill once said that with all temporary failure comes the seed of success.  It’s amazing how right he was…

Escape Velocity: From the Mailbag

It has been a while since my last post.  I suppose I was just waiting for the right topic to come along.  Recently, a reader sent me an e-mail that got me thinking about personal failure and how to come back from it.  Essentially, one needs to see their failure NOT as something negative but as feedback that is simply suggesting that a current course of thinking, feeling, and acting has come to an end.  Additionally, one needs to see their situation as a chance to start over.  My response to this e-mail was more in-depth than I expected it to be and I thought it was good enough to share with all of you who may be experiencing what the reader is going through.  I have included the original e-mail from the reader below (with permission) as well as my response.  Take a few minutes to read them and let me know if you think my response can be helpful to someone in a similar situation.

I’ve been thinking of doing something fun with my book for some time now and I thought my new blog would be a great place to try it.  What I would like to do is offer you my book for FREE.  You can download it by clicking the link below:

Think & Grow Balls! Free PDF Download

There, that was easy, wasn’t it?  So what’s the catch?  Well, the catch is that the file above is “password-protected” and you need a special password to open the file.  So, how do you get the password, you ask?  That’s easy!  You just have to complete the Password Scavenger Hunt.

Escape Velocity Pep-Talk #2

This post is part two of a multi-part post featuring the original Escape Velocity Pep-Talks written by J.D. Bloodstone.  Originally written in 2008, these pep-talks were a supplemental weekly e-mail course sent to people who downloaded Think & Grow Balls! in its original e-book format.  These newsletters were recently discovered in an archived folder on an old computer after having been lost by the hosting provider and feared lost forever.  I am happy to report that they will be released on this blog over the coming months.

Escape Velocity Pep-Talk #1

Several years ago I used to write a series of e-mails called Escape Velocity Pep-Talks that I used to send out to my readers on a weekly basis.  They were extremely popular and my list of subscribers was growing on a daily basis.  I had several months worth of pep-talks written and several thousand subscribers when I received an e-mail from my service provider informing me that their server had crashed and lost all of my data.  I immediately picked up the phone to confirm the bad news and needless to say I was pretty bummed.
