About Jeff Brown

"The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead" ~Anon. I'm 40, I have a 22 yr old son, & a nearly 2 yr old grandson. I'm a 3rd generation veteran; my Grandfather was in the Army in WWII, my father was in the Airforce in Vietnam, & I was in the Navy in Desert Storm. I've been around the world - twice. I've been to Paris, London, Madrid. I've been to the top of the Eiffel Tower! I've sailed across the English Channel! I've been to October Fest - in Germany! I've been to Bourbon Street for Mardigras . I lived in Scotland for 2 years. I own a home, a car, & a couple of businesses! I've seen & done more in my 40 yrs than most people could hope to see or do in 2 lifetimes. I've experienced some major ups & downs along the way! And I've done it all with a GED & without 2 nickels to rub together! It's been one hell of a ride so far & I'm certain that the next 40 are gonna be even more interesting than the first. I'm not 1 step closer to the grave, I'm 1 step closer to really being alive!

God Said…

One day I was talking to God & I asked Him what I had to do to avoid ending up alone. He said… “Stop being afraid.” He told me that I would never end up alone for the reasons I always thought I would. He said it has nothing to do with how smart you are, how strong you are, how rich you are, or how physically attractive you are; the one & only thing that can cause you to end up alone is the fear of being alone. Fear causes us to act in a manner that drives the right people away & attracts the wrong ones to us. The goal for today: give freely of ourselves… live by the Law of Attraction… & we will never end up alone! Have a great day everybody!

Intelligence

“God is Intelligence.” There is a difference between knowledge & intelligence… between information & Intelligence. Knowledge & information comes from books & schools & scholars… but true Intelligence can only come from God. Being familiar with a piece of literature or memorizing verses, pages & paragraphs is great… but it isn’t until you open your mind & let your heart explain that information to it that you can claim Intelligence. Intelligence has nothing to do with education & in fact, it is sometimes hampered by it. The goal for today: know that Intelligence comes from God & we ALL have equal access to it… you are smarter than you know! Have a great day everybody!

Compassion… Or Destruction?

Telling people that nothing is ever their own fault isn’t a good idea. Encouraging people to not ever take personal responsibility for their own lives may seem like compassion, but you may really be aiding in their destruction. Even when we have been seriously & legitimately wronged, we have to learn to take responsibility for our reaction to it. The moment I stopped looking for someone to blame for all of my problems was the moment my life turned around & started getting better. The goal for today: know that personal responsibility is the only path to personal freedom! Have a great day everybody!

“Self”-esteem Never Come From Others

It’s called “self”-esteem because it can ONLY come from self. In my teens I had people telling me that I was smart, strong & lovable… but I chose not to believe them. Others told me that I was stupid, weak & unlovable… and that’s what I chose to believe. Later in life, I had the exact opposite experience… & this proved to me that “self”-esteem can ONLY come from inside. People telling me I’m a good person can’t force my self-esteem up, unless “I” believe it. People telling me I’m a bad person cant force my self-esteem down, unless “I” believe it. The goal for today: if you want to know who you really are, look in the mirror… because the only opinion of you that really matters is your own! Have a great day everybody!

The “Seemingly” Unsolvable

I want your biggest problem! I want to help you solve your problems, learn how to properly cope with them, rise above them & prevent them from happening again. I want to teach you a practical method of overcoming any problem. I have tapped into an ancient method that has literally been working for thousands of years, that never fails when honestly & genuinely carried out. The goal for today: tap into the power & simplicity of Principle based solutions & triumph over your “seemingly” unsolvable problems! Have a great day everybody!

Not For Me

Someone once told me that I was supposed to be selfish… so I tried it & it made me miserable. They told me that I had a right to be angry… so I tried it & it made me miserable. I was told that it was ok to lie… so I tried that & it made me miserable. Then they told me that fear was normal & natural… so I tried it & sure enough, that made me miserable too. I don’t believe that anyone should be selfish, resentful, dishonest or afraid… but I’m absolutely certain that I shouldn’t be. The goal for today: know that negatives don’t cause positives… & stop blindly following foolish people! Have a great day everybody!

You Don’t Understand

My two favorite sayings most of my life were “You don’t understand what I’m going through” and “I’m not hurting anybody but myself”… and neither of them were true. I would use them when I didn’t really want to fix my problems. I said “You don’t understand…” when someone would offer a solution I didn’t want because I liked wallowing in self-pity & remorse… I liked being the victim. I said “I’m not hurting anybody but myself” when I was trying to justify a behavior that I knew was wrong, but was afraid to correct. The goal for today: help others… because being their hero will feel much better than being a victim of your own self-centered fear! Have a great day everybody!
