Twitter is probably the largest collection
of intelligence, drive, and ambition mankind has ever
seen, all reachable from a single point.
I truly believe we all hunger for an
opportunity to make a significant contribution while
we are here. What we have lacked is the platform or
access to a “global” community where our ideas and dreams
may be heard.
Twitter can be both; the global community
AND the access. What an incredible opportunity it represents
to learn, to share, and to build.
Why am I doing this? I believe in the
goodness of mankind. I believe mankind has an incredible
potential and creative genius that isn’t being realized.
After studying “successful” people
for a number of years I realized they, we, all have
some every important things in common. We all use the
same thinking techniques while we are being successful.
Successful people, and that includes the majority of
us all, for the most part are mentally healthy. Some
are really “unique”, but “unique” is OK. We can get
through a day with a modicum of grace, have relationships,
and raise children who can do the same.
One of the most important thinking
techniques we use while we are being successful is that
we are thinking in a way that doesn’t generate negative
emotions. The ability to keep our negative emotions
in perspective is the most important aspect of mental
health. Negative emotions are the cause of almost all
mental illness and at least 60% of all physical illness.
I truly believe we can eliminate 90%
of mental illness in a generation. That’s my goal, and
that’s why I created this "Twitter Pledge."
It is really simple.
maybe only once, but today, I vow to share my knowledge,
energy, and time, in service to mankind.”
Let me know you have
taken "The Pledge" and I will send you a free
e-copy of my book, Mental Mechanics: A Repair
least I can do is be true to my vow.
Took The Pledge
Sincere Thanks to all of you who take
the “Twitter Pledge.” The world will be a better place
because of you.
