You’ll thank me for this idea…

This idea is so great and yet so simple that you’ll thank me for it for years…that is, until you forget that I gave it to you and you start taking credit for it yourself.

In a nutshell, here it is: Put all of your inspirational authors on an ipod and hit “Shuffle” and get ready for the inspiration of a lifetime.


  1. If you don’t already have one, purchase an iPod or Nano (or something similar). I have both but reserve my iPod for music and my Nano for audio books. You’ll also need iTunes on your computer (or something similar).
  2. Make a list of the most inspirational authors that have touched your life.
  3. Find out which of these inspiration authors have their work available on audio books.
  4. Obtain at least one audio book for each. I’ve been able to locate about 90% of my audio books from the local library. and are great resources if you do end up having to purchase an audio book.
  5. On iTunes, create a separate playlist for each audio book and load the whole audio book under that playlist.
  6. Press Shuffle…and you’re on your way. The purpose of using the Shuffle option is so you can hear multiple authors on a random basis sharing inspirational messages with you.
  7. Try to carve out at least 20-minutes a day (during exercise is ideal) for listening. It’s not only accelerated learning at its best, but it’s a daily
    shot of inspiration from the greatest teachers in your life.
  8. Change up your playlist by adding and subtracting audio books. This adds variety and keeps things fresh.


See if you can guess what I’m into these days by viewing my current playlist:

Dr. Wayne Dyer (Power of Intention), Esther & Jerry Hicks (numerous books), Eckhart Tolle (A New Earth), Sonia Choquette (Trust Your Vibes), Don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements), Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations With God), Shakti Gawain (Creative Visualization), and Thich Nhat Hanh (Living Buddha, Living Christ). Also in the rotation from time to time are Dale Carnegie, John Assaraf, Barbara DeAngelis, Dr. Sue Morter, Dr. Bradley Nelson, and Marci Shimoff.

Let’s just say that I’m feeling very spiritual these days.

In my Leading From Within program we talk about purpose and passion. Friends, I can’t think of a better way of staying connected to the
essence of who we are than by surrounding ourselves with our greatest teachers…on a daily basis.

Just do it! You can thank me later.
