A lesson from George Faddoul’s best selling book, “The Modern Day Alchemist from the Land of the Pharaohs”:
By implementing a few simple changes, a Modern Day Alchemist, can turn lead into gold and dramatically affect every aspect of their life, and have a tremendous impact on the lives of everyone around them.
Take ‘Health & Fitness’ for instance – Here’s some food for thought:
- An apple a day… keeps the doctor away. You’ve heard this truism, have you not? One of my mentors, personal development coach Jim Rohn simply asked: “What if it’s true?”
- A little walk every day… This will help you connect with the elements – Earth, Air, Fire, Sun and Water
- Half a dozen daily push-ups
In the area of Personal Growth & Development you could…
- Take time to think and plan
- Learn from mentors, read their books. Make it a habit of reading for some 30 minutes each day; that’s how you’ll get to discover the ‘real’ secrets of the ages.
- Keep learning – it will keep you forever young, to get you started, here’s a list of my all time favourite literary classics.
- “The Bible” (a book I recommend you read before you meet its author) including the book of Job & The Gospel of Matthew 20-1/16) or any other Religious book of your inclination, like the Qur-an, the Torah or any Buddist or Hindu Sacred texts
- “Don Quixote” by Cervantes
- “Hamlet” by Shakespeare
- “Faust” by Von Goethe
- “Cosmic Consciousness” by Richard Bucke
- “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz
- “Any book” by Ken Wilber describing his Integral Model.
Now let’s look at our “Social” side of life. What about we start with a little…
- Smile. Then we can laugh and find the best in people. You can also…
- Select your friends with care, and become the ideal neighbour, and…
- Be charitable. This is an abundant universe.
What about taking care of your “Family”
- Surprise them. Go the movies, eat out etc…
- Make time for your children. Tuck them in. Read to them some bedtime stories.
I used to sing John Lennon’s “Beautiful Boy” to my children, however, I changed it to suit my daughters “Before you go to sleep, say a little prayer, the monster’s gone and you daddy’s here, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful girls…”
Now here are some simple modern day alchemical steps which will help turn ‘relationships’ into Gold:
- Start a birthday and a Christmas diary and send out cards as often as you can. I used to buy books by the hundreds and send them out instead of cards. My friends would keep them for years on end. Changing other people’s lives for the better at every opportunity you get, is a sure way to become the “modern day alchemist” yourself.
- Guinness Book of Records world holder Joe Gerard a person with the highest number of cars sold, in one year, used to send a card every month to everyone on his database. To this day, Joe holds the record for the highest number of cars sold by one individual in any one year.
- Work out what it is you’re looking for in others, and than very gradually, become that person yourself.
What about your ‘Spiritual’ side of life? What little steps can a modern day alchemist take to improve that often neglected part of life? Well what about…
- Listening to a sermon. An hour a week – not much to ask.
- Always strive for and be on the lookout for win-win outcomes
- Live up to and uphold your personal principles, and gently and assertively enforce your boundaries
- Allow your word to become law in the Universe
Here’s the best alchemical advice I can give you relating to your finances from the Richest Man in Babylon…
- Save 10% of every dollar that comes through your hot little hands, starting today. This little tip alone, done repeatedly, will make you a millionaire in no time at all. Here’s another place where a lot of people falter when mapping out their future finances. Let’s say they desire one million dollars in ten years. People tend to divide the $1,000,000 by 10 to equal $100,000 then they divide that by 52 (52 weeks in a year) to equal approximately $2,000 a week. This figure seems so large that they give up before they even begin. The problem with that is, they haven’t heard of the “J” curve, what I call the “accelerator” where nothing seems to happen for a while, but suddenly some time later, incredible results begin to manifest. This is real Alchemy at work. A little bit, returns a lot.

Extended Quotes a Milton model language pattern where the message you intend to communicate is delivered after a series of quotes/statements from other people, making it impossible to know where one started and the next one finished. It facilitates in the removal of conscious barriers, making the message more easily acceptable.
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.”
—— Kahlil Gibran
