Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 277-October 4 A man arriving in Heaven got to ask God one question. He asked, “The world I left had so much poverty, disease and evil. Why didn’t you send someone to help?” And God answered, “I did. I sent you.”—Unknown My friend, Gary Tharler, sent me that story. One day, he picked up a brochure advertising the “AIDS Ride across Alaska.” It changed his life. Gary decided to participate in the ride. In order to do it, he had to devote most of his spare time to training himself to ride long distances on his bicycle. He trained for an entire year. He said that Alaska was wild and majestic, and by … [Read more...]

It’s All Just Stuff

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 276-October 3 “Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.”—Gilbert Keith Chesterton I was robbed at gunpoint one evening after work. It was dusk, about six o’clock, and I had pulled into my parking space in the underground garage at my condominium. I was about to open the trunk of the car to get some things, when I heard a deep voice behind me say, “Give me your money!” (This is not one of the affirmations I teach in my workshops.) My heart sank as I realized I was about to live out one of Los Angeles less desirable … [Read more...]

Philosophical Conversation

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 275-October 2 “Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t, then it is of no use.”—Carlos Castaneda I had an interesting philosophical conversation one evening with a man I met in a restaurant. (Okay, a man I picked up in a bar.) I often get into conversations about the meaning of life and the nature of reality with people, since I think that’s one of the most important things to figure out while we’re here on the planet. I remember telling him about my philosophy of choosing … [Read more...]

You Don’t Have to Know Everything

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 274-October 1 “When in charge ponder. When in trouble delegate. When in doubt mumble.”—Unknown I used to think I had to know everything myself. What a mad scramble that was. When I was president of the Los Angeles Chapter of National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), I had to get over that idea—fast. There was just too much to do, and a lot of it was beyond the scope of my capabilities. I quickly learned to delegate, and to compile a roster of great resources—people who were terrifically talented at their chosen professions. NAWBO had an advisory board of politicians, business, and … [Read more...]

Get Some Help

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 273-September 30 “Don’t be irreplaceable; if you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.”—Unknown Aren’t you tired of being self-sufficient? Enough I say. Get some help. It consistently amazes me how people wear themselves out re-inventing the wheel. Over and over again. Like nobody ever had this problem before and you have to figure it out all by your lonesome. Who told you that? I admit it took me just about forever to figure this out. Now, every time I need to know something that I don’t know, I just find out who does know and go ask them. When I wanted to learn to ski—I signed up for ski … [Read more...]
