• Thirteen Paradoxes

    Each chapter explores one paradox, to discover an unlikely success strategy.

    One - Surrender and Win

    The Success Paradox is about being successful,
    not becoming successful.

    Seven - Give to Receive; Receive to Give

    Giving and receiving are mutually profitable activities that sustain balance and health.

    Two - Father is Child to the Man

    When we connect with universal intelligence, that becomes our model for “God.” Our fathers no longer need to play that role and are free to be their imperfect selves, just like us.

    Eight - We Can Get What We Need, When We Quit Trying to

    Get What We Want.

    True success is developing the ability to perceive and leverage the value that is arriving on our doorstep in every moment.

    Three - We Are the World

    We are simultaneously individual and connected, like waves in the ocean and we are designed to help each other. In fact, that’s when we are happiest.

    Nine - High is Low; Low is High

    Instead of careening from one artificially induced high to the other, trying our best to ignore the lows, we learn to dance with the flow in our lives.

    Four - Profit Before Profit

    Putting social profit first (people and environment), results in financial profit without harmful side effects, but only when we’re synchronized with the full-profit system known as nature. 

    Ten - We Can Change Our Past From the Future

    Becoming authentic changes our behaviors, and that changes how we see things, even our past. Memories seem to change when we look back at them through new eyes.

    Five - You Can't Get Here From There

    What if “here,” our best possible experience, is actually our natural inner state? “Here” is already here. Are we here to fully enjoy it?

    Eleven - Reality is an Act of Creation - Yours

    Something created everything and we are not spectators on the sidelines, we are connected in the web of life, which means that we are also creators.

    Six - Why is There Never Enough Time to Do It Right

    But Always Enough Time to Do it Over?

    Expediency drives us to take shortcuts, but kicking the can down the road doesn’t get rid of the can. Eventually, we must be accountable for the repercussions from our actions.

    Twelve - Believing is Seeing


    Change beliefs, change perception, change experience.

    Thirteen - The Means Determine the End

    Whatever we do along the way will always show up in our end product. Chefs know this. Salt tastes different than sugar; every ingredient influences taste.
