You can actually change your thoughts and attitudes by taking positive ACTION, no matter what you’re thinking or feeling!...MORE INFORMATION »

“I didn’t get here by dreaming about it or thinking about it — I got here by doing it.”
Estee Lauder

You’ve heard of the Power of Positive Thinking. There’s no doubt about it…the human mind is an amazingly powerful computer, capable of transforming our lives.

But achieving what you want in life isn’t accomplished by sitting in your comfy chair and visualizing all day long. Far too many people neglect to ACT on their own behalf in order to bring their dreams to life. As cosmetics company founder and CEO Estee Lauder put it so well, “I didn’t get here by dreaming about it or thinking about it — I got here by doing it.”

Author BJ Gallagher has captured the “secret” no one is talking about — you can actually change your thoughts and attitudes by taking positive ACTION, no matter what you’re thinking or feeling! She calls it the “The Power of Positive DOING” —the title of her latest book.

BJ is no stranger to Simple Truths’ readers. The author of more than 20 books, including Friends, Oil for Your Lamp, and The Best Way Out is Through, her engaging stories and original poetry have put her on our best-seller list.

Find out what you’re living for, and you’ll be on your way to the STARS....MORE INFORMATION »

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Henry David Thoreau

After 50 years of teaching success, Nightingale Learning Systems has gathered together the common bonds and shared values of those individuals who occupy the rarest positions in their industries—the top 2 percent.
With The Top 2%, our intention is to provide the latest research on what it takes to reach the top in the 21st Century—the road map for the next generation of achievers–starting with you.

The fact is, the top 2 percent set the trends in every industry. They set the trends by imagining and dreaming things that didn’t exist and then doing what it took to make it happen. Whether you’re in business, entertainment, sports, politics or some other industry, if you’re in the top 2 percent, you have the power and influence to make things happen.

Find your overarching sense of purpose and focus on it, you’ll find yourself with a drive and a passion you never felt before! As Dostoyevsky put it, “The secret of a man’s being is not only to live, but to have something to live for.”

Find out what you’re living for, and you’ll be on your way to the STARS.

  • Inspired by Lombardi’s famous speech – “What it Takes to be #1”.
  • Filled with vintage photographs, inspiring quotes and nine chapters that tie Lombardi’s philosophy into your organization or personal life.

“Winning is not a some time thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit, so is losing…” – Excerpt from Vince Lombardi’s speech, “What it takes to be #1”

Lombardi! Perhaps no single word in the English language communicates such strong visions of excellence, discipline, commitment, and of course winning. The Lombardi philosophy transcends football. His powerful words capture the fundamentals of success — in any sport, any business, any life and any age.

This remarkable gift book will bring Lombardi’s philosophy to life, like never before. Vintage photographs (some seen for the first time), great quotes, and nine inspirational chapters by Lombardi’s son, Vince Lombardi, Jr. that tie back to his father’s speech (Commitment, Discipline, Excellence, Mental Toughness, Habit, Faith, Passion, Results, and Truths).
