I just finished watching the movie version of a book I read called The Secret. If you're not familiar with it, it's a spiritual work emphasizing the power of one's thoughts and the Universal "Law of Attraction." Whether you are a religious or person or not, I believe there is merit in the information contained is this body of work. The premise is that you create your own future by your thought process or what you think about most. If you believe in your thoughts/dreams, and feel them happening ... you will attract other people and situations that make them happen. Conversely, if you believe you can't do something or focus on negative things ... you will attract that energy with negative results.
So, I have been focusing on the positive and am thrilled to announce one of my own life's dreams which has now come to life - the completion of my debut CD, The Better Part of Me. This was a labor of love which literally took years to finish. I got off the track a couple of times (and perhaps stopped believing at one point) but am proud to say that today, it is now a reality. I'm very happy with the final product and hope you will be too. The Secret also discusses that success begins with gratitude. I have many people to thank:
My parents who have been supportive of anything I ever wanted to do.
My wife who has heard these 10 songs over a million times ... maybe a million and one.
My two sons - one who thinks I'm a good singer, and the other who always says, "stop singing, Dad."
