Dedication to my Friends of 'Sticklers for Grammatical Perfection'.

As I write many words each week with my online magazine articles, the news letters, updating my manuals, co-authoring a book, and working on aJV partnership with an online business University, grammatical errors can slip by me and even those who look over my work.
Fortunately, I have friends who email me to let me know what slipped passed me.
To these soldiers of grammar. I dedicate this wonderful humour piece that was sent to me.(Oh, they recommend the book,'Eats, Shoots and Leaves:The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, by Lynne Truss


How To Write Good

1. Always avoid alliteration.
2. Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
3. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
4. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
5. Remember to never split an infinitive.
6. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
7. One should never generalize.
8. Comparisons are as bad as clichés..
9. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary;
it's highly superfluous
10. Be more or less specific.
11. Who needs rhetorical questions?
12. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
13. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
14. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
15. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
16. Writing carefully, dangling participles must be avoided.
17. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
18. Don't never use a double negative.
19. Verbs have to agree with their subjects.
20. Don't overuse exclamation marks!!!!!!!

John Assaraf
I met John Assaraf at the Double Birthday Bash in San Antonio.
I was looking forward to meeting him as I love quantum physics and
John is a person who understands how quantum physics can attract
what you want in life.

I enjoyed his energy and his ability to show you what is possible.

He is the New York Times best selling author of 'The Street Kids Guide
to Having It All. He has dedicated himself to the scientific study of peak performance.

John's life transformed from a turbulent renegade teen, and now
generates over $4 billion a year in sales.

Today he teaches people how to succeed.

Next week John is having a very fast-paced 45 minute teleconference
call where he will interview 5 of his millionaire friends so you can
learn how they think differently than you do.

One of his mentors, a multi-millionaire once said to him "if you want to become a millionaire you have to first learn to think and act like one".
John took heed of his advice and was fortunate to become a multi-millionaire by the time he was 30.

He is asked all the time if it's possible to learn how to think like a millionaire.

The answer was absolutely YES! But first you have to decide if you're serious about becoming a millionaire. I mean really serious and not just interested. It takes a real commitment to doing what it takes.

If you want to learn to think like a millionaire and are committed to doing what it takes...
