For over 35 years through his speaking and writing career, Tim has been sharing his message of
Wisdom, Courage, Faith and Optimism with millions of people around the world.

“To see yourself as a victim – is to wish your circumstances were to continue.”

Sooner or later everyone regardless of age, gender, position, nationality, economic status, race or religion experiences some form of adversity or trouble in life. It is as much a part of life as every other circumstance you will ever experience. Life is a neutral concept. It doesn’t pick on certain people and shower others with only blessings. Some people could look at others and say, “Those people are wealthy; I’ll bet they have never failed or felt despair or discouragement.” We have news for you.

“Circumstances do not determine who the person is but reveal who he is.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes

No one is exempt from life’s trials and tribulations!

“I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection.”
Thomas Paine

Life is nothing more than the ebb and flow of circumstances and conditions. Yes, some people may seem to get more than their share of bad times while others seem to get more good times or circumstances than they deserve. But be careful not to judge by appearances.

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering
their attitudes of mind.”
William James.


There is one underlying theme in the materials available on this site - you can’t always control what comes into your life but you can, if you choose, to always control how you respond to it or act because of it.

“Whenever you fail, pick something up.”
Oswald Avery

Adversity, problems and failure, no one wants them but everyone gets them. How you choose to see them or define them will have a great deal to do with how they impact your life. If you fear failure and choose not to stretch, try, experiment or reach because of its consequences, then the fear of failure now rules your life. If you fail and learn, then you are in charge of your life and its outcomes.

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
Albert Einstein

No one likes the sting of discouragement or despair. If you are discouraged, troubled or afraid we hope you find answers or solace in the books and CD’s available on this site.

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves.”
Thomas Edison

One of our mentors and heroes, Eric Butterworth always told us, “No matter what is going on or how difficult times may seem, use your pain, discouragement, loneliness and despair to get in touch with who you are, what you believe and your creative potential. Get busy.”

“Face adversity promptly and without flinching, and you will reduce its impact.”
Winston Churchill

Don’t ever let anyone else tell you how to live your life. We all make mistakes and the people who are often good at giving advice might do themselves a favor and take some of their own counsel.

“Facing it, always facing it, that’s the way to get through. Face it.”
Joseph Conrad
