Dear Reader,

(NB – This email was written while the website was down for a while – sending it out now – enjoy!)

Today’s email is going to come across (as one reader famously once put it) – “for someone that doesn’t believe in God – some of your messages have a strong spiritual content”.

You are right, Charles … but if you’ve read the subject line of todays email – – well – – a bit of background first!

Back in December 2019, I received a call from my wife. Nothing out of the ordinary, except it was a shorter call than usual.

She sent me a few astrological predictions that claimed “2020 was going to be a very strange year” – – including a YouTube video or two from folks I do NOT follow (and don’t quite believe in either for various reason).

At around the same time, a couple of other people I know sent me messages stating “2020 was going to be an awesome year for ALL”.

My reaction to both statements?

Ho hum. I don’t believe in “predictions” of that nature – – what I believe in is what I FEEL – – what my gut – – and my connection to the Universe (and believe me, we ALL have it – – we just need to choose to FIND it – – and TRUST in it – – see the last email on this) tells me – – through means that most people would scoff at.

Dreams being one of those means … and as I woke up this morning with the Internet out (yet again, for no apparent reason) – – and the website DOWN (yet again – – for no apparent reason) and a host of other occurences – – a thought flashed into my mind.

The world has been participating in a LOT OF excesses – both financially and otherwise.

The financial part probably comes as no surprise given the scams etc galore (especially over the last year; I could write a tome or two on it!). And in terms of other excesses – – well – – talk a walk down any local Wal-Mart – – either in China or America – – or whichever country you so choose – – and you’ll so what I mean in terms of health excesses.

Despite the barrage of medical science telling us that being a lard ass (especially around the waist) is NOT healthy at all – guess what is happening – all over the world – with gay abandon at that.

I could go on and on. On and on and on. Natural resources, the way people treat each other. Common courtesy seems to have become a thing of the past for many folks, and why do I bring all this up?

Well, because of the SILENT THIRD PARTY that the great Napoleon Hill and other writers (notably Emerson) referred to so often in their writings!

THERE IS A SILENT THIRD PARTY TO ALL OUR BARGAINS … which cannot be cheated, no matter what – – and these words hold AS TRUE today as when they were first penned.

It all boils down to the Law of Compensation which cannot be cheated or refuted in any way – least of all by man.

In Emerson’s own words …

Men suffer all their life long under the foolish superstition that they can be cheated.

But it is as impossible for a man to be cheated by any one but himself, as for a thing to be and not to be at the same time. There is a third silent party to all our bargains. The nature and soul of things takes on itself the guaranty of the fulfilment of every contract, so that honest service cannot come to loss. If you serve an ungrateful master, serve him the more.

Put God in your debt. Every stroke shall be repaid. The longer the payment is withholden, the better for you; for compound interest on compound interest is the rate and usage of this exchequer.

And as we look upon what is happening GLOBALLY – – these words make even more sense – – or at least they should.

The outbreaks of seemingly incurable viruses globally. Recessions. Countries isolating when they need to be working TOGETHER. And so forth. All seems to be coming down to a “pre World War One” era – – and while I’m NOT predicting “war” as we know it – – a different type of “war” has already been declared by forces unseen – and it is going to be all about the SURVIVAL of the FITTEST.

As I sit here writing these lines to you, the other thing I’d like to say is this – for those of you entrepenuers out there – – this year will probably be YOUR LITMUS test. Pass it, and you make it. Fail, and … well …

As Napoleon Hill famously said, there seems to be a “hidden guide of sorts” whose job it is to test us ROYALLY through all forms of disappointments, seemingly “final” defeats – – and hurdles us over many obstacles, one more seemingly insurmountable than the other – – until only the MAN that CANNOT be defeated, first in MIND (spirit) and then IN BODY survives – and enjoys the spoils.

And any sort of “survival” is of course dependent upon your physical fitness, my friend. As gyms etc (and even outdoor parks) remain shut globally – – its back to the the good ole days – -and things that WORK.

Nothing fancy, no BS. Just exercises that work – exercises with your own bodyweight that not only deliver the best results in terms of fitness – – but also help you SURVIVE – what is potentially going to be the most interesting and challenging year we have had in a while.

I look forward to it though – – and I hope YOU do too!

By the way, my apologies for the prolonged site downtime – yet again. I have NO idea why the sites are going down so frequently – perhaps it’s time for a (long overdue) change of host. We’ll see how that goes, but for now, it’s adios – – and I’ll be back again soon!

P.S. – This is also NOT the time for “loose mouths” or “idle thoughts – especially destructive- – no matter how seemingly insignificant” – – of ANY NATURE. I had a thought of the dreaded Coronavirus striking (again) in my apartment complex – – and lo – – a few days later, guess what happened. Three days ago, I had a weird feeling that the Internet would be acting up soon – – and lo – guess what happened. While I am NOT given to negativity, we all occasionally have disturbing thoughts occasionally – – and my advice would be FIRMLY BLOCK all of them OUT. Let the good in – out with the bad!

P.S #2 – Oh, and in terms of workouts you can do at home, make sure to grab Corrugated Core – – as well as Pushup Central – – for a barrage of exercises that you can do on your lonesome, at home – “survivor” style – – and NEVER get “bored” –  or stop making gains!!
