“The task ahead of you can always be overcome by the power within you…and the often seemingly difficult or even “impassible”) path ahead of you is never as steep with the great spirit that lies within you.”

“We have it within; but we get it all from without. There is a well-spring of strength, wisdom, courage and great imagination within each one of us; but once we draw on this truth, it gets watered from without, by a Higher Source – the Ultimate Source of Life and Love, which is God, the very Ground of our Being.”

About craig lock

ABOUT c the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html and http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig-lock Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his lifes savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" (it missed, btw!) and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season." True! The various books* that Craig “felt inspired to write” are available at ebooks (digital books) http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=la_B005GGMAW4_sr?rh=i:books&field-author=Craig+Lock Paperbacks (see https://goldendawnpublishing.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/paperback-writer/ and https://wanttowriteabook.wordpress.com/2013/06/07/paperback-writer-the-beatles/ https://www.createspace.com/pub/simplesitesearch.search.do?sitesearch_query="craig+lock"&sitesearch_type=STORE https://www.amazon.com/Craig-Lock/e/B005GGMAW4/ref=pe_584750_33951330_sr_tc_2_0?qid=1476388259&sr=1-2-ent http://www.creativekiwis.com/index.php/books and http://goo.gl/vTpjk All proceeds go to needy and underprivileged children – MINE! “When the writer is no more , the value of your purchase will soar! “ “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.” PPS Don’t worry about the world ending today… as it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand

      Thanks for the follow/link/like/reblog/comment and/or kind thought(s)

      https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxslrCi5v2WzMnFoX2tfMVYzMjA/view?ts=58cc29feHi

      This is craig and this is a quick word of sincere thanks to you ALL. I came

      across the following post from international best-selling author, Bryant

      McGill on his Facebook page, which I felt “inspired” to share. Bryant’s

      writing summed up/put these thoughts far better than “lazy-bones” I ever

      could have done, so am sharing these beautifully-written and heart-felt

      sentiments in the same spirit (through copy and paste ( CONTROL C AND

      V)

      Personalized, “adapted” and abbreviated (edited) from

      https://www.facebook.com/bryantmcgill/

      Thanks (sincerely) for “the borrow” Bryant.

      “Be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid”

      This is a personal message to ALL you good people around the world, who

      follow my various blog pages and posts and read and comment my various

      writings on WordPress and in my books. I want you to know that I really

      appreciate all of you. I would love to respond to nearly every comment. I

      can’t do that; however I do care that you take the time to read (and absorb)

      what I’ve written and may even have commented. I do read as many

      comments on my 200 + blogs as I can, but probably have missed countless

      thoughts of yours, so have not replied. Sorry and thanks for the

      understanding.

      “Just as you grow and learn, I am also growing and learning from you

      all…and really like people to THINK.”

      I just felt compelled to let you know that I really appreciate you for reading

      and perhaps following my various writings. Never think for a moment, that

      just because I don’t respond to comments or messages that I am not paying

      attention. I am paying attention and I am grateful.

      I am a full-time writer, which means you are a very important part of my life.

      I wish all of you the freedom, respect and happiness you each deserve. Thank

      you all for being a part of my life. Your presence, feedback and contribution

      “out there in cyberspace” has added immeasurable to my ‘little’ life here in

      “isolated and far-off Sleepy Hollow”, near the bottom of the world and

      through the medium of the net we can be and remain connected in spirit.

      craig

      Best wishes from the First City to see the light

      “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and

      lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to

      reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their

      wildest dreams.”

    Hi

    CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”

    I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands (“zillions”) of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/
    in recent years …true!) …a few of my blogs went “balistically viral” a few years back.

    Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share. However I am unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages.

    Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s a few books there). so sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”), I got swamped with comments on my various blogs, so have had to close them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular interest to me
