Change the way you think. Create magic in your life!™


It has been a whirlwind of travel, speeches, and shows since last month. I'm getting ready to head off to Bangkok in a few days to do a number of presentations for ABB at their Asia Sales Summit. I was with ABB at their Americas and European Summits and look forward to being on board in Thailand.

Priot to that, I had a great time wrapping up the Tyco/Scott Health and Saftey sales meeting in Austin, TX, as well as working with Quest Software at Oracle World in San Francisco, DiTech Networks at Von in Boston, TBS at the National Histology Society in Denver, Avocent at Interop in NY, and at CheckFree at their Client Exchange event in good old Hollywood, CA. (This was all in the last 4 weeks, whew!)

Just a question and a comment (see below), before my article on the power of forgiveness. If you are or have been angry about what someone said or did to you, I encourage you to read the full article. It will show you how to start eliminating that anger and free yourself from resentment or feelings of revenge.

Thanks for reading this ezine and forwarding it to others.

I was wondering if you would like me to set-up a blog where you could ask me questions or submit your own comments on this ezine or my podcasts. If you think that would be a good idea, please email me at Thanks, in advance, for your input!


A big THANK YOU to all of you who have visited and listened to my podcasts. We fixed the download problem for the latest ipods, so it is fully ready to go.

We hope to have it up on Itunes in the near future, but you can also type "bob garner" "podcasts" in your favorite search engine and find a multitude of places to get the feed or just go to .


How many people have done bad things to you? How many bad things have you done to other people?

I have had times in my life, when I could answer with the word “many” to both questions. I have used my quickness of mind and tongue to say things that I later deeply regretted and have done things that hurt others. To my credit, when I have done or said things that were “wrong,” I have usually gone to that person and explained myself, apologized and asked for his/her forgiveness. To my discredit, I did not apologize to everyone and still have to monitor myself, so that I don’t make the same mistakes, again.

In my past, there have been people who did bad things to me– and never apologized or accepted any wrongdoing. Therefore, I had, never forgiven them. The anger or disappointment that I carried around was not overbearing and it was not the utmost thing on my mind, until someone would mention that person’s name or I was reminded of the event in someway. When that happened, the anger (or want of revenge) would return to my mind, and I would start thinking about how I could get this person back or what I would say, if I saw that person again.
But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered that that carrying this anger and resentment inside of me and feeling a “need to get back” was a waste of time.
