“We are the creators of our universe” ~ Rhonda Byrne author of The Secret

This Episode

  • The Universe
  • The Universe Does Hear You

The Universe

Aladdin and the Lamp. The genie of the lamp says, "Your wish is my command."

  • The Universe, God, Genie or whatever you call the the infinite intelligence is real and will grant you your hearts desire
  • According to Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, What you can conceive in your mind, believe it in your heart, you can achieve.
  • You provide the feelings of having it now and the universe will respond in kind
  • According to the King James BibleAsk, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you
  • The universe always knows the quickest, fastest, most harmonious way between you and your dream
  • The universe will make it happen

I realized there was definitely something holding me back. I was accused of being a "Nice Guy." Then the phrase "Nice Guys Finish Last" popped in my head. Fortunately I didn't have to accept that.  Thank goodness I'm a work in progress and, according to the Secret, I am the creator. David Schartz, author of The Magic of Thinking Big, suggested that we are our own laboratory and can keep on working to improve ourselves, check out danhansen.com/10 to hear why. Once I realized this and talked with my mentor, I turned it around. I even went so far as to write a check to myself for $1,000,000 to be cashed when I reach my destination.

The Universe Does Hear You

The Universe responds in many ways. Today, just before I wrote this, my son was putting ice in the basement freezer and a pile of my stuff crashed down on his head. Amongst that debris was a manuscript for a book I started in the 90s, on a manual typewriter, and a handwritten meditation with a sketched image to go with it. It looks like the Universe wants me to publish my first book and create the meditation audio for you. I'm on it.



Constant and Neverending ImprovementConstant and Neverending Improvement

In Japan, the word for constant and never-ending improvement is kaizen. Not only is this an operating philosophy for modern Japanese businesses, it is also the age-old philosophy of warriors, too—and it’s becoming the personal mantra of millions of successful people. - Jack Canfield

As part of my constant and never-ending improvement, I have decided to bring everything home. Literally, I'm bringing everything to my home page, DanHansen.com. I discovered that I have so many goals and projects. I didn't want to be so scattered on the Internet. I have decided to take my lead from Michael Hyatt at http://michaelhyatt.com. Therefore, I'm taking my blog and podcast to the next level.

Taking It to the Next Level

This is exciting. I'm taking my blog and podcast to the next level. I am planning on putting everything under one domain, DanHansen.com.

What do I mean? My blog is already at DanHansen.com. I am working on is merging the podcast The Coffee Couch there. I'm also bringing in my scholarly studies from The Scholars Room. I have a few books and screenplays that I am working on. I decided to do is make me the brand.

This will allow me to showcase the many sides of me. The scholar-practitioner, novelist, screenwriter, and podcaster will all have a chance to shine.
