Promethean Hispanic Fire
In the Greek tale of creation, a Titan (Greek god) by the name of Epimetheus is given the task of creating living creatures. He screws the job up by giving all the good DNA and survival mechanisms to the animals. When it came time to creating man he had nothing left but soft skin and weak limbs.
Desperate, he calls upon his brother Prometheus (which means forethought) to help him out. Prometheus decides to give humans the ability to walk upright and be able to see far away into the distance (like gods). Prometheus then flies to heaven, steals fire from the sun and gives it to mankind.
The reigning God Zeus (a.k.a. Big Poppa) was not happy and orders Prometheus tied to a rock for his crimes. This is the story, from a mythological perspective, of how man got fire, and was able to step out of the age of darkness and into the light of modernity.
When I first heard this story of Prometheus bound, I could only feel sorry for the Titan himself who wanted to help mankind by giving him fire. The fire to me represents not only light and heat, it represents 'potential'. When man was given fire, he was given 'potential'. But, the knowledge to use that potential, that fire, would have to be learned and earned over time.
In today's society, we too are given that fire, that potential, and left with the task of forging an application or strategy to help us achieve our personal and financial goals. Everywhere you turn, there is Promethean potential.
Too often I hear people complaining about the lack of opportunities available to them. But for me, everywhere I turn I see the potential (the fire) given to us to achieve great things. Everything from the books we read (knowledge), to the financial systems in place to help us (banks, credit cards, loans) and access to information (internet) are like Promethean fires; potential given to us.
In the story, Prometheus could only give mankind the potential, but it was then up to mankind to figure out what to do with it. As the Hispanic market continues to grow, so does the Hispanic Fire of opportunity. Everyday more opportunities are opening up to serve this growing section of the population.
So my question to you is, "What tools are available to you right now, that you aren't using, to take advantage of this growing market opportunity? We've been given the Promethean (Hispanic) Fire of opportunity, what you choose to do with that potential is up to you.

The Power of Mind-Imagery
Today I feel inspired that I should speak more to the framework of a successful mindset. We've already discussed how to ignore negative thoughts and encourage positive thoughts by monitoring what we allow to dwell in our minds. We've also talked about the power of affirmations in changing our inner-talk to things we want in our lives. Today I think we should focus on how to use vivid imagery to obtain the things of our heart's desire. I call this "Mind-Imagery."
What Are the Nine Bodyparts of a Better Life?
Your Head, think about what you want and move towards it Everyday we have several opportunities to make a change for the better, the worse or just say the same and everytime we make a decision in one of these directions. At breakfast you could have oatmeal, or toast and jam, or you could have a coffee and a donut, your decision could often be better. When you get to work you could take the elevator only part way and climb a few flights in the very empty stairwell or you could choose to take an elevator to your floor. Don't feel too terribly bad about all of your decisions as you should know that not many others are making a great decision every time either. I ride my bike to work every day and in a building of 1000 people I am one of three bike riders. Look at these decisions one at a time and if it is a little easier carry around a notebook and write down things to do better. Try to resolve today to just do a few things alittle better than you did yesterday.
The Secret Key (Part 1): An Overwhelming Purpose
Imagine that you are in a dimly-lit room. You don't know how you ended up here, but you are now in it and you are trying to find your way out of it. You see a door to your right side and walk up towards it. Right before your eyes, the top corner of the door starts to get blurry and you can see something like letters starting to materialize. It's not clear at first, but suddenly the words are sharp and vivid and it reads "SUCCESS". Pushing the door open doesn't work and it feels like it's stuck. You try to push it some more and it still doesn't open. You start to move your hands on the door to see whether there is a knob that you can turn. As you are feeling your way on the door, you realize that there is a lock. Success is something you truly want to achieve and it's right there on the other side of the door. You now need the key. Panic sets in and you frantically crawl around the room looking for the key to this door you need to get through. After what seems like hours you sit down in the corner mourning your misfortune. Reaching into your pocket for your handkerchief to wipe off your sweat, you feel something in your pocket. It feels like a?.. Yes! Yes! It is the key! You are now secure and the only thing between you and success is the action that you need to take to put the key into the lock, turning it, and then walking through the door.

It is accepted that most people have felt shy at one time or another but not everyone who appears to be shy can be identified as having any social problems.
