Pythagoras Agrees With Confucius and Ben Franklin on How to Change Your Fate and Fortune

My book, White Fat Cow: The 6M Way to Change Your Life, Fortune and Destiny, deals all about how to change your fate and fortune. Everyone who has studied the self-help field and reads THIS book says the same -- path breaking, paradigm busting, the first REAL new contribution tot he field in ages.

None of the other "change your life" books can compare tot his one at all. None touch the ontological basis of life, fate and fortune. None teach how to change karma rather than just live out a karmic fate which might seem like a life change, but is actually just a new twist in your fated karmic road.

In White Fat Cow I go over how Benjamin Franklin changed his fortune. Every day he reviewed his faults and tried to avoid them the next day. I also go over how Liao Fan changed his fate and fortune -- every day he reviewed his faults and tried to eliminate them on a daily basis -- and I urge you to read his story, readily found on the internet. You'll learn more about changing your fate from his story than thousands of Napoleon Hill and other type books. In White Fat Cow, I also tell you that in The Analects of Confucius, Confucius said:

"It is these things that cause me concern: failure to cultivate virtue, failure to go more deeply into what I have learned, inability, when I am told what is right, to go over to where it is, and inability to reform myself when I have defects." Confucius: The Analects (Lun yu), trans. by D. C. Lau, (The Chinese University Press, Hong Kong, 1992), p. 57.

The Analects also says: "Tseng Tzu said: 'Every day I examine myself on three counts. In what I have undertaken on another's behalf, have I failed to do my best? In my dealings with my friends have I failed to be trustworthy in what I say? Have I failed to practise repeatedly what has passed on to me?'" Confucius: The Analects (Lun yu), trans. by D. C. Lau, (The Chinese University Press, Hong Kong, 1992), p. 3.

Now comes the kicker. Head back to ancient Greece and the Golden Verses of Pythagoras. They espouse the exact same method that helped these others to change their personalities and fortunes:

"Never suffer sleep to close thy eyelids after thy going to bed, till thou hast thrice reviewed all thy actions of the day: Wherein have I done amiss? What have I done? WHat have I omitted that I ought to have done?

If in this examination thou find that thou hast done amiss, reprimand thyself severely for it; and if thou hast done any good, rejoice.

Practise thoroughly all these things; meditate on them well; thou oughtest to love them with all thy heart. It is they that will put thee in the way of Divine Virtue."

(from The Golden Verses of Pythagoras, adapted from the translation of N. Rowe, Concord Grove Press, 1983, p. 19).

So here you have Confucius - Pythagoras - Benjamin Franklin all espousing the same thing, which is illustrated in the life of Liao Fan. If you apply this technique to your life, as did modern Americans such as Frank McKinney or Frank Bettger, you will surely change your fate and fortune.
