I guess I have always been a dreamer, but that does not mean I was always a positive person. There are negative-minded dreamers out there too. I had a rough entry into the world. But somewhere along the journey I decided to see the positive in life. That doesn't mean I began ignoring reality or not acknowledging the negative, but I did decide to fairly accept the fullness in life's balance, which demands that there are positive gifts along with adversity. There is a law of opposition apparent in all life which guarantees balance and fullness. I quit allowing my negativity to block the positive gifts which were meant for me, along with all of the hard lessons and tribulations I had to endure.

I remember when I was twenty years old, I went to a therapist for depression because my grandfather had just died that week. I was devastated. He asked me what I had in my life to anchor onto, to give me hope. I told him that I held onto the fact that I was a great writer in the making. He asked me what I meant, and I told him that being a great writer was in my blood and that one day my works would be published all over the world and reach millions of people. He told me, "But you are not a great writer in reality." (Don't go to this guy if you are depressed!) I responded, "yes I am, that is a fact; it just has not emerged in the world yet, but it is a truth in my heart — a part of my truest reality." He sternly and seriously told me my thinking was dangerously close to delusions of grandeur. Not the first time I've heard that! I told him excitedly, which further disturbed him, "Thank you. I am happy with that. I would rather have that, than delusions of insignificance." He was not amused and loudly scribbled something in my file. I have to say that it feels good knowing I never let anyone destroy my dreams, not that I keep score — ok, well maybe I do a little.

I have learned a lot about the weapons people use to keep others down — and how these weapons are presented as "help" by those who "care." I have enjoyed, perhaps a little too much, not allowing those who tried to squash my dreams have their way. But then I remember that many "negative" people were conditioned by people with small minds and hearts, so I forgive them. They never knew it, but I couldn't be stopped — it wasn't a goal or an ambition, it was a calling. My second-grade teacher, who really made a positive impact in my life, told me I could be anything I wanted to be, and I really believed her. I knew her words were truth because of the way she looked at me. I always knew, even then, that I wanted to be a writer. From an early age, I was a natural encourager and advice giver, and so I decided as a child that I would write books that helped people — I thought that would be so much fun! I believed I could succeed because in my heart I knew I was a winner. I don't mean that in an arrogant way. I knew I was a winner because humility taught me that every person is a winner. If you believe in yourself and you don't give-up, the fullness of life's balancing grace will demand the symmetry of recompense for all your loss and pain. It is staggering how completely, fully and fairly life supports you if your negativity will allow the blessings to arrive.

Great blessings require great commitment and determination. I can promise that few of you know the long-suffering involved in my journey, and I am sure your suffering belongs to you in an equally private and intimate way. All I have ever wanted was to make a meaningful and lasting contribution and to live life as fully as possible. My chosen life path was definitely not the safe path, rather it has been like stepping out on a tightrope with no safety net. Something in me would rather fall than not reach the other side. Some people call that place success, some call it prosperity, and others may call it a purpose. For me, the destination of my dreams is where I came from originally — a paradise of innocence — but I was somehow separated from it when I was born. The truth is, and always has been, that I would rather not live at all if I cannot live in harmony with my innermost truth. For me, the journey of my life has always been to reconnect with my true self. Don't we all wish to find ourselves in this way? The child in me has been my guide. After all, a child's world is a magical place, and so is mine, and it always will be.

I have so much gratitude for the people who have loved me and stood beside me over the years. Deep appreciation fills my heart when I think of each of you. Thank you also to my enemies, detractors, naysayers, lurkers and secret ill-wishers — you have strengthened and blessed me immensely as my important teachers. All of my dreams are continually coming true. Dreams do come true for those who dare to believe in themselves. You set the standard for how people will treat and regard you, by how you treat and regard yourself. I hope each of you will believe in yourselves because life wants to give you the blessings you deserve. It is never too late to begin living your own dream. Start right now by beginning to believe.

There were times in my life where I didn't think I would even live another day. But I did survive my pain and I worked to understand it and use it in positive ways. Pain in life never ends, it's just a matter of learning how to sit with it and use it properly. Some things we never fully recover from, and we simply do the best we can. For me, recovery is a lifelong process. I try to write things in a way where you can put yourself or someone you know into the sentence. I leave out religion. I let you insert your own version of God and spirituality; that's none of my business really. But what I do want to make my business is letting you know that your life can be sweeter and kinder. I hope that as you advance into new inner-territories and better phases of your life, that you are able to become more open to receiving the opportunities for love and joy that you deserve. I hope you can see what I see. I hope your burdens can be a little lighter and your love and laughter can soar a little higher. I hope that you are able to heal some of those old wounds and stand a little taller and feel that spark of optimism in your heart and stride. I hope a few humble lines I pen make a little difference to someone somewhere. The truth is that my readers are more of a family than I ever had, and that means you are some of the most important people in my life, and I care about you, which is why I have written this book. Thank you for sharing your journey with me and for spending some of your precious and limited time in life kicking around some of my ideas.

I truly wish that your life be sweet and beautiful. We all know life is not easy at times, but I have learned that incredible things are made possible simply by the way we choose to think. I have been made an unshakable believer in possibility, because of the profound blessings of life, health, and wealth, which poured into my life because of the way I decided to think about and see life. You could call it faith and a quest for beauty. The beauty was actually there all along; I just had to see it. Beauty is in your life too; awaiting the moment of your realization. It is my earnest desire to show each of you how I made it to the other side with grace and ease. No one has all the answers, but what I have discovered, that worked for me, I feel obligated and delighted to share with you. And when the words that flow through me occasionally meet your mind, and possibly speak to your heart as truth, then in that moment my calling is fulfilled. I have learned that it is a high spiritual truth, that when you reach to touch something beautiful, something beautiful reaches back and touches you; such is the relationship between writers and readers. Thank you for this relationship. I will continue to do my very best to always share with you what speaks to my heart.

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings. In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." — Henry David Thoreau

Bryant, you are someone we don't 'put up with' -- but rather someone we admire and garner inspiration and wisdom from. In short, you have been to all of us a real friend, albeit in many of our cases in that nebulous fashion of 'knowing' you without having met you in person. I've been reading your offerings for years now. We read what you write, and actually pay attention, because we know we learn more than just the sum of what you write; you create a flower that grows and begets seeds that can propel us into positive change. Not a painless process, but necessary. That said, I'm quite sure that speaking for myself, you have given me far more than I've ever given you. I feel honored, and I thank you.

Bryant, our paths grazed by each other (didn't even actually cross) via a mutual friend years ago and your perspective continues to inspire and motivate me, particularly when the "sorrows come, ...not single spies but in battalions." As you mentioned above, your channels of communication are expanding and Facebook has provided an efficient and effective method for sharing your blessings with us all. Whatever path you choose, I hope to be able to keep my eyes on the steps you take and continue absorbing the richness you bring to my life.

Although we've never met I almost feel like you are a friend I guess because of Laura. I enjoy reading your inspirational posts regularly. I was surprised to hear the other day that my son also reads them and looks to your writing for inspiration at times. I do understand the need to delete people you don't truly know though. We wish you the best in all you do! :)

I think that people are filled with the illusions if anger, jealousy, fear, hatred, desire and they project that onto others... I tell people someday I will win a Grammy.... people laugh at me. But I know that someday I will win a Grammy and the world will accept me and my music and show itself that I made this place just a little bit better even if only momentarily! As for the idea that we are put in this body with these families, emotions, and times.... what are we going to do with it? Do our Best, nothing less, because you are right, the biggest competition is the self. And the greatest reward it proving to yourself you can achieve anything! Believe that! <3 As for people and strategies perhaps you should make a group page :)

Well, I'll put my selfish thoughts aside for the moment :) My opinion is that you do what is comfortable for you. I've been blessed to have you as a fb friend. Your writings inspire me because of your truthfulness and ambition, struggles and triumphs. I think we can all resonate with the feeling that not everyone understands whatever struggles we've experienced in our lives but I think there are people who do or at least have compassion for them. That aside, congratulations! Blessings to you, always :)

I think ultimately you just have to decide. I have been on the private side of social networks and the public side. Probably want to make a fan page for your public and keep this one for the more intimate/worthy people in your life. I for one enjoy your outlook on life and agree with what you are saying here, and I think that keeping that personal integrity in for that long despite the naysayers is honorable. I do hope that the people you remain friends with are those who can see the value in that. I am glad that you are having such great experiences. I can honestly say that in the 5 or so years that I have been friends with you on Myspace and Facebook I have never seen anyone so positive and bright.

Avatar

Bryant McGill - Facebook.com
Thanks Wendy! So nice of you and thank you for sharing your perspective. The idea is to turn the whole page, all 5K people included (minus whatever peeps need to be "weeded-out" and make them all a "secret" brain-trust of all the inside business and strategy---everything---the god the bad and the ugly.

You have allowed me to be a friend of yours on more then a few social networks. I think we actually connected on myspace first. I'm thinking 2005 or earlier, also on your own website. I know I have lost touch with you for a few years because of trails in my own life. I know you got a few of us started here before it was even popular. I am so very happy for you, and your success to come! I think your personal page should be just that. congratulations Bryant!

You can share an idea for feedback as an event and invite every friend. You name the event and set a date and list it as an online event and you can comment on the event what you are needing to receive feedback from them. It will stay on their event list at top of their home page until day of event. It worked for me when I did a "What gives me Joy event"

I would think about keeping the group for some of the legal docs and very personal info to a more intimate group of trusted ones. Unfortunately, this crazy wonderful media is full of impostors and "do no gooders" LOL. You are such a lover of people that you scare me with your trust. I enjoy this quality about you but sometimes reason needs to rule the heart? Just a concern for you. You might consider having an inner-inner circle with personal relationships you respect and trust and after honing the idea from their feedback, you can broaden the follow-up event.

Bryant, i have followed your journey from back in the MySpace days, through the weight loss, and watched you evolve over a long time. Were you to disappear from my feed, I would miss you. FB can serve you any number of ways, and as long as you arent harming anyone (including you), full disclosure can make you more accountable to both your audience, and yourself.

Bryant...I am always interested in what is happening in your life...no matter what it is. I know you already have the answer to the question in your heart. And I'm just saying that you have a lot of "pearls" and they certainly don't need to be tossed before "swine" if you know what I mean. I have this thing...where if I have personal challenges going on in my life...I will only share it with people whom I know will help me to look up and move forward and not let me dwell in it. And at the same time...when I have dreams and goals...I only share them with people whom I know will support me 110% in accomplishing them. NO NAYSAYERS allowed. I know you have a great network of people who would love to continue to support you in any way possible...whether it's Facebook...or another medium. yet I know the answer to how to do that will appear! I love you Bryant!!! As Always!! :)

Great concept! I would welcome the opportunity to be a part of anyone's process to actualize their goals. As for ill wishers & leakers, their may not be any way to ensure against this & still be able to try this process. Maybe that's the trade off? But then, you've never struck me as one to shy away from chance. :) Peace & Light- no matter how you choose.

I was going to say something profound and eloquent, but sometimes simple stupid is best. So, here's the skinny: Bryant, you do for others by sharing your inspiring thoughts and personal triumphs on a regular basis, and you are appreciated, respected, and thanked for that by so many of us. Just as you have tackled and conquered the other challenges with which you've been faced in life, you have got to do the same with this one and do what's good for YOU, not anybody else. Sometimes being a little selfish is ok :) That being said, regardless of your decision, I've always thought it wise never to share anything on FB that you don't want shared with the world because sometimes even dear friends with absolutely no ill will can be chatter boxes, even if just sharing in your excitement. On another note, those who truly do care about you, whether you keep them as friends or not, will understand. Those who don't care now, won't care later either way. I know it's a rather blunt thing to say, but it's the truth. And just to clarify...while I am one of the former, I will not understand so deleting me is not an option :) (haha!). I am so happy for you with all you've accomplished, and I'm even happier that you are happy for yourself! You deserve it!

Why do you think so many people feel threatened by someone with a big God given dream in their heart? Why do you think it is so easy for so many people to be negative and doubtful instead of supportive. I think encouragement and support make all the difference in the world. I surrounded my daughter with it...and she is thriving...on the way to reaching her full potential. I still fight myself to overcome the mental abuse I endured. We are told as children that words are just words.. but words affect everything! And I have to say....Mrs. Shumock was the best ever! She was so great at pointing out the gift in each individual child...a true encourager.....the only teacher I ever had who made learning fun! Love ya Bryant McGill

Bryant! I like the idea and it deserves a 'mastermind' discussion. You could as easily create a NEW page, so secret only you and those you invite to it have entry. It may not even have to be here on FB which is not the most secure place on the planet for those with big dreams, big ideas and a willingness to put them into existence. I'll support you enthusiastically no matter what.

What do we do with our Shadow sides..? My instincts strongly tell me that we can't love them out of existence (nor obliterate them) -- and more importantly, we have them for a reason. It's an ontological thing, intentionally -- and lovingly -- structured into our reality....

Some great ideas Bryant....With me personally, I had to make changes to FB and have one page for close friends & other VIP's who I invite to the page, and then have another page for everyone else. I wanted to be able to follow my close friends and certain others more closely on a page. When you have soooo many friends on one page it's hard to do this. Also create different friends lists - close friends, school, etc. That way I know where to find specific people and how I'm connected to them. It all seems to be working for me. You could do lists on your current page and then maybe have a secret page for those you wish to be connected with on a more personal level.

We all travel in diversely different and interlinking circles that it will inevitably expand our understanding of each other. Never mind the social dynamics, business practices, etc from the level you operate at. I see a book from our shared experience once you start to get feedback from us, your privileged friends. You have such an articulate passionate expression of self that I know it would be impossible for us not to be inspired from your words. And please thank that second grade teacher of yours (Mrs Shumock, is it?) for fanning the flames we are all still warming ourselves with. Keep doing your thing Bryant. One day we shall meet, in this dimension or the next, and I will get a chance to shake your hand in gratitude for the inspiration you have given by your honest and open articulation of being.

Bryant Mc Gill I first met you on Myspace and followed you here to facebook, you disappeared for a while & recently reappeared - You have an amazing gift. There is nothing in this world greater than LOVE & with your words I see that is what you are all about. I am happy to be able to witness your hurdles that turn into victories, and I see you as a mirror of myself. I just read this & it is funny I just posted a song in reference to closing your ears -Lalalala & that is how I have been getting by too. Honestly, I think the world needs more of this...Simply This - two people encouraging each other- to keep at it! Knowing the TRUTH - Embrace it all - Accept - ALWAYS BELIEVE & Yes DREAMS COME TRUE! It's such a beautiful process - as well...

Bryant, you are an absolute GREAT friend to so many of us. Please never feel guilty for working on the things that make you who you are, and the world a much better place. That takes time, and true friends have a beauty about them...they will always be here with love and open arms no matter how much time has went by. I love you and I know how much you have brought to my life and I cherish you so much for that. Lean on who you need when you are overwhelmed, and just know that you are loved unconditionally. xoxo

We are all so busy, Bryant... but when we hold someone in our hearts, as I do you, time and distance don't mean as much as "knowing" that the good thoughts are still being held on each end. Always sending light and love your way. :-)

Your energy is contagious as well as your smile :) So keep making the world a better place. Some things in life are worth waiting for. None of your true friends hold it against you.So if we have to wait an extra day or two to hear from you; its worth it and so are you! I know my world is better with you in it. No matter how busy you might be. Stay sweet! *hugs*

It's truly been a pleasure, Bryant. There's an old saying that goes something like, "You don't have to hold onto a friend's hand, because you know that it's always there." Thanks for being there, my friend. It's made a world of difference!

I completely understand why we are not in touch sometimes, life does get busy incredibly so, I always have so many things on my plate and I know you do too, it just means we are pursuing our dreams/goals. I'm so glad we connected years ago, your friendship has meant the world to me. Wishing you and your family much love, happiness, peace and health always <3.
