Its really great to going through your article, its undoubtedly true that positive vision and thinking can flick your fortune forever, ups and downs are part of life but how you conquer that is the main thing, the way you presented is excellent and inspire me a lot.

Since your knowledge of shares is a little less at the present moment, please do your investment indirectly. Use an equity based mutual fund as the vehicle. Suggest you see www.valueresearchonline.com that has an analysis of mutual funds and tracks them by short medium and long term. Choose a five year horizon for your analysis. First understand that best results come from the long term. Put aside only a small amount initially and test your appetite for risk. Over a period of time seek your own comfort level and increase your investment or exit depending on how comfortable you are.
Reply to Vijay Paliwal, Vijay, no offence taken. Never have I said that the ideas are my own. If I had not read and applied these ideas, I never would have known whether they work. Also please understand that most people do not have the time or inclination to go through books and understand them. I believe these ideas have value and have therefore put them together in an easy to understand way. If one goes back to the origin of these ideas, they are very old. Many of our ancients are said to actually have had the power to manifest thoughts physically. Obviously these are things that were known to them. Wallace Wattles is said to have been influenced by Vedanta. Who is copying whom? Do you become a copycat if you invent a device that uses electricity because you did not invent electricity? Kaavya was declared a copycat because she flicked whole passages without even changing the language! It was very decent and courageous of you to get back on this forum. I sincerely wish you all the best in your quest for health, wealth and happiness. Do mail me whenever you have the time.

Thanks for your wishes Mr. Krishna. Best wishes to you too. I read TAGR about 4 years back and have been practising its principles since then. I cant believe where I was 4 years back versus where I am now...When I was on a scooter, I used to dream of driving a mercedes, and stuff like that...now i have all that and I dream of even more....thats what keeps me going...

My bad...its Andrew Carnegie..Your point is well taken that a lot of articles get inspired by ideas that have been around elsewhere. My only beef is that you called these ideas your own. A lot of writers get in trouble because of plagiarism. E.g. Kaavya Viswanathan, just borrowed Megan McCafferty's writing style and got in trouble. Yours was just an article, so you should be safe. I have not read other books you mentioned except TAGR, so I cant comment on if hill plagiarized. I was bitter in my message, but I really feel ashamed at lack of originality on most of the stuff we (Indians)do. Thats what triggered it off. I am sorry about my bitterness. Will try to do better next time.
Shameless act of plagiarism (go read ''think and grow rich'' by Napoleon Hill)

Mr Krishna, Its disgusting how you lifted the idea everyone is aware of thanks to Napoleon Hills book "Think and Grow Rich" and called it your own shamelessly. Even Napoloen Hill gave credit for his book to Dale Carnegie who told him these secrets of being wealthy. And my ignorant friends in India are showering praise on your effortless work of plagiarism. Shame on you. Editors of Rediff, I thought at least you guys would have caught this and not posted this on your website.

Mr Paliwal, the name of the person that Napoleon Hill was inspired by and whose ideas he documented was Andrew Carnegie. You have obviously not read TAGR. Further, neither had I before others pointed out that I had copied ideas from there. Wallace Wattles predated Napoleon Hill and so does it mean that Hill copied Wattles. Read Robin Sharma or Anthony Robbins or Joe Vitale or Deepak Chopra or Wayne Dyer or Jack Caanfield. The basic idea is the same. These guys are enriching others' lives by their writings. So when many ideas have come from Vedanta, everyone is a plagiarist! Anyways, there are hundreds of articles on the internet on similar themes. Mr Paliwal please rid yourself of bitterness. I have merely put together the ideas that have served me best. Most readers of the article have appreciated the message.
Express your opinion without making allegations, please.
As for Chamunda, I am not asking him how much he earns! For the record, I live comfortably, am reasonably well off and the Universe takes care of me!
