Barry J. Moltz on Feeding Your Mind Good Stuff

TimBarryMID
An excerpt from the forward of the Barry J. Moltz Edition of Feed Your Mind Good Stuff

Many of us think a lot about the food we put in our bodies. We realize that if our bodies does not have good fuel, it can’t perform well.

Tim Sanders, in his new book, Today We Are Rich asks if we similarly think about the information that we put in our mind. This is critical because we are what we think about. How can we have the resiliency to ride the daily business roller coaster up and down if we feed our minds junk? This includes the hor- rors of the nightly newscasts, sitcoms and reality TV shows. What shape is our mind in after answering a barrage of emails or aimlessly surfing the web? What about the negative people, gossip and nasty attitudes that we are exposed to every day?

Tim believes that we need to go on a “mind diet” in order to radically change our attitude and therefore our level of confi- dence. He says that “When good stuff goes into your mind, good thoughts emerge. People who maintain purposeful mind diets of positive stimuli think healthy thoughts”...

Michael Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer of element6, on Feeding Your Mind Good Stuff

An excerpt from the forward of the Michael Gilbert Edition of Feed Your Mind Good Stuff (an excerpt from the book, Today We Are Rich)

Why do you think it’s important to Feed Your Mind Good Stuff?

As a successful entrepreneur for 16 years (and 14 businesses) I have found the businesses that failed were a direct result of focusing on the negatives instead of the positives. One business I started was the first company in the country to launch wireless broadband in Republic, Missouri alongside Motorola. That did not guarantee our success. Years after we shuttered that business I realized there were many things we could have done to make it a success. I believe the main reason wasn’t lack of funding, lack

of know how, or lack of sales. It was the negative people we had associ- ated ourselves with. They focused on the negatives, instead of the posi- tives. That was reflected in our concentration of our competition and lack of funding. If we had focused on the positives we could have come up with different solutions that are now evident to me. Now I realize that negative people influence me much more that positive people. They are like a virus. If you don’t feed your mind positive and motivating thoughts and associate yourself with positive poeople, you’ll get caught up in their illness and soon you’ll be spreading the disease as well.

How has this changed your life or improved your performance?

In our current business we have “Ferris Bueller’s Day off DAY”. It’s the day that any employee can call in sick, with pay, if they are in a bad or negative mood. Negativity is an illness. It spreads through the office like a plague...

Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker and Investor, Rajesh Setty on Feeding Your Mind Good Stuff

An excerpt from the forward of the Rajesh Setty Edition of Feed Your Mind Good Stuff (an excerpt from the book, Today We Are Rich)

Today We Are Rich is a gem of a book. Just the chapter alone on “Feed Your Mind Good Stuff” is worth the price of the book and more.

When I was an Engineering student, one of my teachers who used to teach us about computers told me about a term GIGO (Gar- bage-In-Garbage-Out) - referring to the way computers process things. He used to say that computers are not intelligent or not intelligent - they are indifferent. It is the human beings that can use computers intelligently to make the most out of them.

Our brains work almost in a similar fashion. You feed them good stuff and you get good results and you feed them bad stuff and you get bad results...

Brian Palmer, President of National Speakers Bureau, on Feeding Your Mind Good Stuff

An excerpt from the forward of the Brian Palmer Edition of Feed Your Mind Good Stuff (an excerpt from the book, Today We Are Rich)

A good life is no accident. While a variety of factors weigh into one’s existence our days, months and years are primarily a result of the things we think, decide and act on. The information we take in has an impact on all three.

... Several years ago, noticing a pile of un-loved and un-read copies of the Chicago Tribune I called to change our subscription to only Sunday's paper. I called again when the paper continued to arrive on Thursday through Sunday not wanting the distraction, the waste of paper and the extra exercise clearing our parkway. A kindly woman explained the extra days would be “free” and that they want to keep us hooked. Exactly.

For many years my browser home page was The Wall Street Journal. It was always filled with sto- ries and information... and distraction. Whenever I had to look something up the “world” would be opened up before me and I’d stop to “see”. While often it was something interesting it usually was not important and interrupted the achievement of the task at hand. Once recognized my home page was changed to a blank page and a box for search terms. I’ve established time in the day to review the Journal and along the way become more focused and productive. Many quality news outlets are turning to a paid model. The Wall Street Journal has been and others have and will be making such a change. I’ll gladly pay a little to improve the quality of my news and reduce the clutter around it.

Back in the 80’s I discovered books on tape (now on CD as well as downloadable to a MP3 player) and have listened to more than 400 books I would not have read. While that smile you might see on my face as I drive along might be because music is playing, it’s more likely the result of a great story.

What we expect impacts what happens to us and our expectations are the result of what is in and on our minds. Don’t leave it to chance.

The GiANT Impact Custom Edition of the Feed Your Mind Good Stuff Excerpt

An excerpt from the forward by Jeremie Kubicek, who wrote and highlighted the GiANT Edition of Feed Your Mind Good Stuff (an excerpt from the book, Today We Are Rich)

As leaders, it’s incredibly difficult to be intentional about the ‘inputs’ we feed our mind, and ultimately, our soul. That’s understandable. We are wired to want to keep abreast on current global events, the latest corporate scandal, or even the latest Hollywood buzz. In fact, it’s in our DNA to actually want to be at the forefront of this gossip, drama, and commentary.

However, as our friend Tim Sanders points out so vividly, our life and leadership are really an overflow of what we feed our mind. The posture of our mind and emotions is clearly evident in how we lead our teams, our companies, and our families. Some of the situations in our leadership that we wish we could “take back” may actually be tied to a specific piece of negative food that we fed our mind.

Feeding our mind toxic information may be the very thing holding us back. Our mood state, our energy level, and our overall health are tied directly to the quality of information we take in...
