Welcome! Hope everyone had a great Easter and Passover. We are celebrating Easter this weekend with our family.

Promoting You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! has been incredibly challenging. Although it has been thrilling to find how many people have come out of the woodwork to help us on our journey, it has been a very long one. But recently we met Elizabeth Miles through her Power to Pivot podcast. In talking to her, she suggested that we change the name of the book. Elizabeth didn’t give us any suggestions on what to change it to, but her reasoning behind it made sense. So we got out what used to be You’re Amazing and told ourselves that the title must be in here somewhere.

As the book is laid out now, just a few pages from the front there is a door with the words on it, The Doorway To Knowledge and Freedom. Because of this, the new title of the book is The Doorway. We are still playing with the subtitle.

Now for this week’s story:

One of the things that I have always been able to do is to see value in other people. Because of this when I was a young boy I liked to hang out with older people. I figured that they had wisdom that comes with time and I could save time by learning this wisdom from them. The reason I am writing this blog series, Teaching The Game of Life, is to pass on some of the knowledge I have accumulated during my 62 years to everyone.

What Did Our Ancestors do to Take Care of Their Feet – One of the things that we tend to ignore until we finally have problems with them is our feet. If we do not take care of them as we age we can start to get fungus growing under our toenails. Once this fungus starts growing, it can be difficult to get rid of. If you go to the doctor, they will tell you to use some ridiculously expensive medical ointment.

As an inventor and an amateur historian the question I have is, “What did our ancestors do for foot fungus before this ridiculously expensive medical ointment was available?” I am not a doctor, so I can’t tell you this is something you should do, but I can tell you what our ancestors did and what I do for foot fungus.

Hi there! Last week was a crazy week and I apologize for not being in touch. Last week’s craziness and hassles brought about, let’s say a revelation. Throughout the journey of writing my book and marketing my book, I have been looking for just the right title. Well I believe that we have come up with the one – we are testing it now in our ads – The title is The Doorway – Simple Stories To Unlock Your Life.

We are working on some changes to the website and my YouTube channel that have been recommended to us so we will be busy on that. We are also checking into some other formats to get involved in with the book and the videos.

Now for this week’s story:

Recently with the COVID-19 and the isolation, along with the constant bombardment the media gives us that Americans are bad, for the first time in my life I started to doubt my faith. I have told you in the past I am an extremely spiritual man. My belief system lies very close to that of the American Indians. I know that there are alternate dimensions.

These dimensions are spirit worlds, as well as our dimension, being  a spirit world. After all, there are 7 billion of us, and that is just people. Interestingly enough science has proved that there is more than one dimension. These dimensions affect one another, which is exactly what the American Indians believed. They also believed that there were bad spirits and good spirits, which science through string theory tells us is the case – positive-negative.

Anyway, I digress, I’ve started to doubt my own faith and my faith is unbelievably strong. I also know that the vast majority of people are good. With the isolation and the media telling us how bad we are, I’ve really been struggling to see the good in humanity for the first time ever. And yet there are two rules that govern good and bad.

Religion, as well as science, tells us that if you do good things, good things tend to happen, if you do bad things, bad things tend to happen. Science through String Theory tells us that if we do good things we raise our positive vibration, which is actually a melody – we change our own music – the aura that we give off. If we do bad things, bad things tend to happen. So if you don’t want bad things to be chasing you, remember that goodness does pay and evil pays a price.

Case in point, a man recently hired me to drive him to do errands. I was told this man was a very generous man and that he would treat me right. At the same time, I was told that he had other drivers that he didn’t like so he wasn’t going to use them anymore. I drove this man for 3 hours to different locations and then he didn’t pay me, he got out of the car and just basically ran away.

Welcome everyone! We are quite excited. As of yesterday my appearance on The Power To Pivot Podcast with Elizabeth Miles went live! I will give you the link here, but once our tech guru Shane puts it in the format where we can share it on social media, we will share with all our friends on Facebook and Twitter, as well as some other new formats that we are checking into. The link is – https://anchor.fm/powertopivot/episodes/Youre-Amazing-and-Ill-Prove-It—with-AuthorSpeaker-Neal-Brownell-erc1ge      Check it out. Thanks so much Elizabeth.

There is another avenue that I am going to enter into and that is Coaching one-on-one via phone and internet. I have coached individuals through You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! and through my workshops, but this will be a more personal one-on-one experience. I will let you know once we have it all set up. The name I have chosen is Unlock Your Life Coaching. I want to share with everyone how I overcame being born essentially blind, being misdiagnosed as mentally slow, and being taught that I was worthless. I will also show you how you can overcome your hardships too in a way that makes you feel good to be alive! If you know of anyone who needs to Unlock Their Life, send me a message and I will contact them once the coaching page is set up.

Now for this week’s story:

America’s Compassion – Part 3

Continuing from last week 3-10-21 –

So other civilizations had slavery for no less than one hundred years. Others had it for hundreds of years. Still others had slavery for thousands of years and still have it.

So, how does America’s record of slavery stack up against the others? After all our kids are being taught by our government that America is the worst ever and needs to be destroyed.

Only 4 years after America’s birth some of the colonies were already abolishing slavery. In 1794 only 18 years after her birth, the first of a series of Slave Trade Acts were passed by the Congress of the United States of America. In 1807, 31 years after America’s birth, the final Slave Trade Act was passed by Congress. The act abolished the importing of slaves from other countries. Remember, when the series of Slave Trade Acts were started, America was only 18 years old.

America is not responsible for any slavery before she was born. Many of our founding fathers fought to have slavery abolished in the founding documents. Although they were initially unable to do away with it at our birth, they were able to write documents that would not let slavery expand.

The Southern Democrats, who wanted slavery at all cost, told Lincoln they were going to secede from the Union. Lincoln said, “Not so fast! You are not allowed to secede.” The Southern Democrats said, “The US Constitution says we can leave.” Lincoln told them, “You’re Wrong! The US Constitution says, a state can secede from the Union if their Constitutional rights are being trampled on. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that anyone is allowed to expand slavery, which means your Constitutional rights have not been trampled on.”

Hi! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a little bit warmer weather – a peek at spring. Our tech guru Shane has talked to me about a new avenue – life coaching via phone, Zoom and others. We are in the process of setting it all up and will let you know more about it in the coming weeks.

As we told you last week, my appearance on The Power To Pivot podcast will go live on March 16. This podcast can be found on Anchor, Apple, Spotify, Radiopublic and Audible. Check her podcasts out, she has a lot of helpful information. Thanks Elizabeth. She will send us a link which we will share with you when we have it.

Now for this week’s story:

America’s Compassion – Part 2

Continuing from last week 3-3-21 –

#1 – It makes sense that if we are working with different information we would invent something totally different. #2 – Is actually part of one, because if the source we are receiving our information from is giving us false or only partial information, we would also invent something totally different from the person who had all the factual information. Annnnd, this is a huge AND, and if someone is using false or only part of the information, whatever they are trying to invent will never work!

Still working with #2, if the person or persons (the giver) giving the false or partial information knows how to get the information in without the receiver questioning, the giver can get the receiver to make the decision they want them to make. At which point the receiver will also never invent a machine or world that will work.

With all the above being said, I as an inventor have more questions. How do we as individuals know when the information is complete and factual? And, how do we know if someone is trying to manipulate our decision?

The answer to both questions starts with the knowledge you have about how your own brain works. I find it ironic that our brain is the most marvelous computer ever created and yet almost none of us know how to program it.

The programming of a computer is perhaps the most important part. If it is not programmed correctly, then it will never perform the way you want it to. The programming of your own brain should be done by you and you alone. It is also so easy, that if you don’t know how it is done someone else can easily program it for you.

Welcome. We have a few things to share with you today. I was a guest on an awesome podcast on Friday. The name of the podcast is The Power To Pivot and the host is Elizabeth Miles. We had such a great time and we feel like we have found a kindred spirit in Elizabeth. We talked about everything from spirituality to science and how it ties in with You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!

The Power to Pivot is a podcast where Elizabeth and her guests share inspiring stories, resources, tips, and fun ideas to help YOU pivot into new ideas, new goals, and new dreams for your own life. This podcast can be found on Anchor, Apple, Spotify, Radiopublic and Audible. Check her podcasts out, she has a lot of helpful information. My interview will go live on March 16 just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Thanks Elizabeth.

The new project that our tech guru, Lady Linda and myself are creating is a coaching program where I will via phone and/or Zoom, etc. be a live coach for individuals who want to better their lives. Once we get the system set up we will let you know.

I have recorded some more videos for my YouTube channel which will be posted shortly. The latest videos talk about how in the late 60’s, early 70’s, the left wing fought back against the corrupt right wing and how today the right wing can fight back against the corrupt left wing. Amazon has actually banned six Dr. Seuss books. This madness of telling us what we can and cannot do has to stop! This series is about how we can fight it.

Now for this week’s story:

America’s Compassion – Part 1

My life has taught me that people are good! (I tell you the story of how I learned people are good in my book You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! – Simple Analogies to Unlock Your Life!) As you know, I’m an inventor and one of the things inventors do is ask questions. People are good, that’s a fact. So, my question is, why are we making such different decisions? In other words, why are good people making the decisions they are making when we all want the best for each other? I have asked myself this question for many years.

Because I am an inventor, I learn things slowwwwly! This is because I learn thoroughly! I want to know every detail. I want to know every part from the most important part right down to the washer that goes on a bolt. I want to know everything that can happen with this particular design (machine, system, etc.). I want to know everything that can happen because if it can happen, eventually it will happen.

So, the answer to my question, why are good people making such different decisions is two-fold. #1 – We are working with different information and #2 – the way that each of us receives the information.

How is everyone? We know that Texas has been having a difficult time. We send our prayers out to them. Our tech guru Shane has some new ideas for the youreamazingandillproveit.com website, so keep your eye out for that. Take care and stay safe.

Cigarettes – Learn How Easy it is to Never Start Smoking – One of the things I learned from older people is to never start smoking. The way I learned this was for me to actually go around to older smokers. I asked them “if you could do life over would you start smoking again”? Over a number of years, during my youth, I must have asked hundreds of older smokers. Every last one of them, without hesitation said “NO!” So I figured if they wished they never started smoking and would not do it again, why should I start.

Welcome! This week’s Learn The Game of Life story is about stretching and keeping your flexibility. I know that many of us, no matter how old you are, can use this information, especially with all the snow and ice. I am sure that many of you are shoveling, having to clean off your roofs, etc. and stretching is extremely important to keep your flexibility. You can do it while you are watching television or listening to music and some stretching every day will help you after you have shoveled that long driveway or cleaned a foot of snow off your roof. Be safe in the storms.

Now for this week’s story:

One of the things that I have always been able to do is to see value in other people. Because of this when I was a young boy I liked to hang out with older people. I figured that they had wisdom that comes with time and I could save time by learning this wisdom from them. The reason I am writing this blog series, Learn The Game of Life, is to pass on some of the knowledge I have accumulated during my 62 years to everyone.

Stretching/flexibility – One of the lessons I learned from older people when I was young was to keep my flexibility. Without flexibility our bodies become more and more brittle. Until the day will come when you step wrong, pick something up wrong, or fall. When this happens, instead of your body’s flexibility helping to protect you,  a muscle or a ligament will tear. You may also break a bone, such as a hip.

You don’t have to go crazy stretching, but you should do some. The older people who were in their eighties did some light stretching every day. There are so many ways to stretch properly that I can’t possibly put them all in here. I would recommend you go to a website that features stretching.

If you find this information valuable, please pass it on to your loved one. This way you can help them protect themselves from injuries that happen because of lack of flexibility. Also if you would forward this message, together we can help millions of people become more flexible and escape injury.

Hi there! Lady Linda and I are excited to say that our new cover of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! should be up on Amazon by the time you read this blog. That is the photo that we wanted to share with you this week. Well, it didn’t work so well inserting the new cover into the blog because it has a certain configuration. We had to put it into the heading on it’s side, but you can at least see what the new cover is like. If you want to see it upright you can go to Amazon and put You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! in the search bar.

We have been getting a lot of snow in the Northeast, so we hope everyone is safe on the roads.

Now for this week’s story:

One of the things that I have always been able to do is to see value in other people. Because of this when I was a young boy I liked to hang out with older people. I figured that they had wisdom that comes with time and I could learn this wisdom at a younger age by learning from them. The reason I am writing this blog series, Learn The Game of Life, is to pass on some of the knowledge I have accumulated during my 62 years of life to everyone.

Failure –  A stepping stone – A friend of mine was telling me the other day that he was teaching his five-year-old son how to ride a bike. He told me his son was doing well, but from time to time he would fall and in one case he drove his bike into a pole. My friend told me every time his son failed he lovingly, but firmly told him to get up and try again. He added that he also told his son, do you have any idea how many times the greats failed before they became great? No matter what happened, the greats just kept trying and learning until they became great.

One of the things that has always bothered me, as an inventor, about our education system is that our kids are not being taught the value of failure. They are being taught that  if they only get 65% they are virtually a failure. However, they are taught to really be a success they need to get 80 – 90%. When in real life, they only need to succeed a small fraction of the time in order to be a huge success. Because our kids are not being taught that failure is nothing more than a stepping stone, many of them stop trying the first time they fail.

Welcome! Neal- The Crazy Inventor here. Like everyone, from time to time, we all struggle with technology. As we told you last week, we have been wanting to test the new covers of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! – Simple Analogies To Unlock Your Life! that Erin made for us and the one that I made to see which one we are going to move forward with.

However, it took until Monday night to figure out an issue that we had. Then we were able to start testing the covers. We should have a cover to show you next week.

For those of us in the Northeast, we hope that you are safe after the snowstorm.

The Importance of SLEEP – I was watching a fascinating documentary on sleep. Basically it boils down to this. The brain has no blood flow in which to clean itself. For this reason the brain during your waking hours is becoming more and more toxic. This is the reason your brain is so cloudy and your thinking is murky when you are tired. However, when you sleep, the brain goes through different sleep/dream cycles in which it cleans itself.

If you do not get enough sleep the brain is not functioning at it’s peak. As you know, the brain is the computer that tells everything in your body what to do. The more tired you are the worse your brain performs.

Hi everyone! Hope you are all well and enjoying life. As we told you we are in the process of changing the cover of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! We have tested several new covers with different sub-titles. The sub-title that everyone liked the best is Simple Analogies To Unlock Your Life! Our new lay-out and design lady, Erin, has come up with two new designs that we are testing along with a design that I came up with. As soon as we have the basic cover decided on, we will share it with you.

The following is an excerpt from my coaching program Mental Power that teaches you how important Mental Imagery is.  Scientists have discovered there is a part of the brain called The Goal-Seeker. If programmed properly it will go out of its’ way to help you achieve your goal.

Mental Imagery

When I first started practicing Mental Imagery, I did not know just how important it is, but since a friend suggested it to me, I thought I would give it a chance. I started running different performances through my head. However, as hard as I tried, I could not make a basket. Every time I shot the ball in my mind I would miss. At the same time, in real life I made very few of my shots. In fact, I was terrible.
