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

Awaken the Balls Within

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...

Think & Grow Balls! – An Interview with J.D. Bloodstone

Think & Grow Balls!

I finished writing Think & Grow Balls! in December of 2007.  The book had been churning in me for years before I actually set down to write everything out.  During my writing, I realized I was suggesting some pretty deep ideas.  Not feeling comfortable with what was in the book I set out to interview as many people as I could to bounce my ideas off of them.  I spent six months conducting field research, meeting and talking to new people, making great friends and solidifying my ideas which later become the final version of my book.  I think my book connects with so many people because my ideas were boiled down to the concepts that bind all of us together.  By the time I had the book ready to submit to my publisher, I had a list of hundreds of people that wanted an advance copy of it.  I knew I had written something good!
