A Reflection about the Coronavirus
A few days ago, I became very lonely as both my telephone and Internet services were not working. I could not contact my family, friends and/or members of my cancer groups that I have been working with for years. No one could leave a message or speak with me. I desperately tried over-and over-again to get it fixed, though without success. I felt that I was letting everyone down and as a result felt very discouraged.
That night I drifted off into a restless sleep and woke a short time later with this thought running through my mind. It went something like this, "Why don't you do what you did before that was so successful?"
Now, that did not make any sense to me. So, I started to think about what it was that I did before that worked so well?
Then I remembered the ‘World Prayer’ that Rev. Dr. Eva Grace Johnson and I created many years ago in the State of Washington and the many churches, individuals, and groups, who have joined with us, since then, in dedicating a set time of day to pray this prayer on a daily basis, over the past 46+ years.
So, I took that prayer and revised it, affirming for an immediate and complete cure for the coronavirus.
Here is the prayer. Please join us as we affirm together. The World Prayer and Meditation Link.
To listen to the prayer, use the audio player below.
New Content and New Format
Self-improvement Talk Radio was originally designed to compliment our radio program, 'Making Your Dreams Come True'.
On our first broadcast we committed to giving you easy-to-use, effective down-to-earth tools, strategies and methods so that you rise to the challenge of ‘making your dreams come true’, one new thought and one new action at a time.
Our goal was to:
Our commitment to these guiding principles has remained constant, though the manner and the way they have been expressed has varied over time. Hence, we have given the website a major facelift in terms of presentation and additional content.
Much of the content, of those original programs, has been updated and converted to the video format. These have been relocated to Dr. Anne Marie Evers' You Tube and Vimeo channels via her website. See links below "Making Your Dreams Come True" to view videos.
"Knowledge is Power"
As you master the art and science of dream creation, personal growth, and professional development, surround yourself with 'Positive Possibility Thinkers' and consider the following basic principles:
Remember: "If you always do, what you've always done, You'll always get what you've always got!"
A foolish person, then, could be described as an individual who is expecting a different result, when continually doing the same thing.
A wise person, then, is the individual who applies what he/she has learned and now understands to get the desired result she/he wants.
Wolfgang Goethe reflected, "There is a big difference between knowing and doing."
KNOWING is based upon measurable, observable, objective, and repeatable experience. A simple formula to remember is: When these conditions arise, the following results (conditions) ensue.
They are linked together. 'You can't have one without the other." Simply put, at its most basic level, it is the application of the principle of 'cause and effect', 'sowing and reaping', nothing more, nothing less.
"The Foundations to Successful Dream Creation"
...and as the DREAM, I Dare to Realize Everything About Me!
REMEMBERING that the Dream is "About ME" and the decisions and choices I make.
TODAY, I honestly acknowledge the degree to which I AM at HOME in "MY" DREAM!
"T'win (Two Win) at Successful Dream Creation"
Every human endeavour consists of two winning (T'winning) components. They are 'Being' and 'Doing'.
The more these two overlap and the more they align, the more likely the dream will come true.
The greater the overlap, the greater the likelihood of dream creation. A decrease in overlap, the less likelihood of the dream coming to be.
TODAY, I COMMIT to BEING at HOME in MY DREAM.
(as much as it is possible for me, today)"I AM at HOME in MY DREAM"!
Consider the following quotation by Wolfgang Goethe
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back—
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."
NOW is the Time to ACT on YOUR DREAM!
NOW is the time to "Dream the Impossible Dream",
NOW is the time to "Dream the I AM Possible Dream"!
and COUNT YOURSELF AMONG THOSE that
"DARE to DREAM"! and "TAKE STEPS to Make Their DREAMS COME TRUE"!
You can choose to sit on the sideline of your life and timidly ask,"Why?" or You can be engaged in your life and declare excitedly, "Why Not!"
"There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why?
I dream of things that never were, and ask why not."
Senator Robert Kennedy
NOW that you have deliberately and decisively decided to bring your life's dream(s) to fruition, take advantage of the following information to create a pathway to your personal success and fulfillment.
Questions Worth Asking
(1) "How strongly do I believe in my Dream?"
(2) "How invested am I in my dream?"
(3) "How passionate am I about realizing my 'DREAM'?"
(4) "To what lengths am I will to go, and endure, to see my 'DREAM' to its conclusion?"
(5) "What am I willing to put up with to get 'IT'?"
Through such questioning, I establish the parameters of my dedication and 'fess-up' to the boundaries I have set in place as to the success or failure of my efforts in causing my dream to come into being.
My 'Belief' is at 49%.
The other (my disbelief) has 51%.
My 'Disbelief' has the controlling interest.
Pause, Yield to the Other, Proceed with Caution
My belief is at 50%.
My belief and disbelief are tied at 50%.
I am in a 'stalemate' and 'paralyzed', prompting inaction.
My 'Belief' is 51% plus. My disbelief is at 49% or less.
What a difference 1% can make!
My 'Belief' as controlling interest.

A Closing Inspirational Thought
From 'A Return To Love' (1992) by Marianne Williamson
"...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us;
it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
