A Better You Made Easy

scan001316.jpg  I always like to find products and  information that can help you become a better you. I particularly like products from people that accomplished something.  Not people that were born well off and then proceeded to become more well off.  That is not us.  I know you are not swimming in wealth.  I know you want to obtain more income and you are probably starting from scratch.  That is why I would like you to read about John Harricharan.  I never heard of him either.   He is not a celeb just a person that changed his life.  He had tragedy and sorrow and created a way of overcoming that.  He has a technique that is a THREE MINUTE, THREE STEP daily plan.  I know that sounds incredible but so is his life and what he overcame.  If you are not interested in wealth but are interested in self improvement this will still be useful to you.  Things do not have to be hard and complex.  Things can be easy and work for you. 


Outstanding businessman, lecturer and award-winning author, John Harricharan, is a unique blend of East and West. A naturalized U.S. citizen born in Guyana, South America of East Indian heritage, he is truly a multi-cultural, global personality. Yet, with his professional background, he also exhibits a rare sensitivity and charismatic delivery which have earned him well deserved respect and acclaim.

However, he was to know failure as well as success. The events that led to both are incorporated in his lectures and are chronicled in his books, which, rather than being stories of loss and sadness are, instead, inspiring tales of courage, strength and the dignity of the human spirit. He has shared the lecture platform with such well-known speakers as Deepak Chopra, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Og Mandino, Gerald Jampolsky, Foster Hibbard, Eric Butterworth, C. Everett Koop and others.

His transformational message stems from his challenging personal growth experiences. As Harricharan says, “I know what it feels like to have my car repossessed, to watch my wife die of cancer, to lose all earthly possessions and start again from ground zero. I also know what it feels like to write an award-winning book, to be written about in others’ books and to be featured in the same book with His Royal Highness, Prince Philip of Great Britain, the Dalai Lama and Paul and Linda McCartney. The contrasts bring compassion and sensitivity to one’s life.”

Bright, well-educated and professional in demeanor, John brings a welcome, pragmatic approach to his lectures, as an outstanding example where the message and the messenger are one.Not only does John share his personal tragedies; he shares the extraordinary tools he uses to overcome his challenges. He meets his audience filled with energy and enthusiasm. His approach is inspirational and motivational, contagiously so and always, always memorable.

Not only is Harricharan a dynamic speaker, but he also reveals himself to be an extraordinary, compelling author. His award-winning book, When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat was named ‘Best Book of the Year’ by the American Bookdealers Exchange. Its sequel, Morning Has Been All Night Coming has been drawing rave reviews. Both books are published in the U.S. and Canada by Berkley Books. In the U.K., Australia and New Zealand they are published by HarperCollins and are also availabIe in Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese editions.

Harricharan graduated summa cum laude, with degrees in chemistry and an MBA from Rutgers University. He started his career with Fortune 500 corporations and worked his way into upper level executive positions. His corporate expertise encompasses areas as varied as Production Management, Research and Development and Marketing. He then proceeded, by blending his knowledge of the corporate world with his entrepreneurial talents, to build an extremely successful business with offices in the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and India. He finally switched from managing his company into what he really loves to do. So now he travels extensively, speaking at seminars and consulting for corporations, organizations and a private clientele worldwide. His extensive experience coupled with his knowledge of multi-cultural inter-relationships afford him the ability to relate to diverse cultures with respect and integrity.

Quotes by John Harricharan …

“The subconscious reacts very quickly to strong emotions or feelings. Whatever it is you vividly imagine, the subconscious thinks is actually happening. The subconscious, if instructed properly, is like a faithful, obedient servant who fulfills your every wish.” — John Harricharan“If you do not feel you deserve good things, subconsciously, you will do all within your power to punish yourself by not getting those good things. So the feeling of deserving is a very important thing”
John Harricharan

“Fear cannot exist in the presence of faith. Fear only exists because you feel that you are not in control. Give up the need to be in control, take a leap in faith and fear will vanish as the mists in the morning sun.” — John Harricharan

Someone to Admire – Kent Sayre


This is a brief bio of Kent Sayre.  I was attracted to Kent’s story for a number of reasons.  He describes himself s painfully shy.  Yet he graduated college.  Being painfully shy he must have struggled with speaking in class.  He also must have had a hard time speaking to his fellow students as well as his professors. 

Next he went out and got a job.  He had to converse with an interviewer.  That can be tough even if you are not painfully shy. Interviews can make the best of us nervous.  Once he was employed he needed to speak to his boss.  Another white knuckle experience.  Bosses can be intimidating.  He also had to speak to his co workers.  In the best of times your co workers can give you mixed signals.  That makes it difficult to speak freely with them. 

Once he made these strides he gave it all up.  You would think he would be afraid to leave this all behind him.  He was painfully shy as well as lacking confidence.  Despite this he became a real estate mogul.  He purchased this real estate without using any of his own money.  That is pretty crafty.  He had to speak to someone official to execute this task.  He did that at age 25.  I am impressed.  Yet there was more he wanted to do.  He wanted to share his secret of success.  So at age 27 he wrote the book Unstoppable Confidence.  Imagine that, at age 27 Kent was so together that he could write a book that other people could use to benefit from.  Even more amazing this book has been endorsed by Robert Allen and Brian Tracy. 

It seems that Kent Sayre was no longer painfully shy.  More than that it seems that Kent Sayre had unstoppable confidence.  It seems that Kent Sayre had confidence galore.

Wouldn’t you love to have this much confidence?  What if nothing could stop you from pursuing your dreams?  What if you jumped out of bed each day feeling wonderful?  What would your life be like if you had Unstoppable Confidence? 

You can have Unstoppable Confidence.  Kent Sayre lived it and he can show you how.  Check out his book.  It can only make your life better.
