Think & Grow Balls!: Free Audio Book Download

Did you know that and audio version of Think & Grow Balls! is available for download as audio MP3 files? Don’t worry… most people didn’t either; however, I’ve decided to make them available for the first time. I had originally thought I would charge people to download these, but then I thought that if anyone really wants to listen to me read my book over a mix of transcendental background music for over an hour they can just have them for free…

PREVIEW: The Last Success Principle by J.D. Bloodstone

The following is an excerpt from my newest book, The Last Success Principle.  It has taken me a long time to get it into this final form.  What started as a single thought has finally evolved into what might be one of the most effective self help and self improvement books in existence.  It’s been a bumpy road, but I’ve had a lot of help along the way.  Many of my readers have helped shaped this book into what it now is and I’m very proud to share it with you…

The Single-Best Bit of Self-Improvement Advice I Can Give…

I get asked a lot of questions on Twitter (@jdbloodstone), but I received one the other day that really stopped me in my tracks.  Normally, I get questions that can be answered quickly without much thought, but this one made me reflect on my past and the path I took to get to where I am today.  The question was simple… too simple, perhaps.  The questions was this:

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.

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.

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

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!

Napoleon Hill’s Carnegie Secret Revealed!

People are searching for the Carnegie Secret so intensely that they’re willing to pay good money for it.  But, before they do… they should know something about the secret:  it cannot be purchased for money… and, anyone who tries to sell it for a monetary price is a fraud.  Let me explain.  If Napoleon Hill wanted you to know what the secret was, don’t you think he would have told you in Think & Grow Rich?  If he wanted to make money off of the secret don’t you think he would have done so in his lifetime?  Or, perhaps his foundation might have done so in the years after his death?

I thought so.
