SORT BY Relevancy
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "The Great American Novel."
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, and translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
This week’s segment is dedicated towards the life of writer and humorist Mark Twain, best known for his works “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.”

RAQUEL COLE is a seasoned singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has written with some of the finest songwriters in the world, has been featured on Sirius XM’s The Highway and has opened up for Country star Josh Turner and Grammy award-winning legendary group Diamond Rio.
Raquel has been perfecting her sound for more than half her young life. These days she splits her time between Nashville and British Columbia. She was born and raised in the Okanagan Valley located in the beautiful province of B.C. Growing up, Raquel was attracted to wide-raging influences that included John Mayer’s bluesy sounds, Bryan Adam’s genius lyrics, and Shania Twain’s pop-country tunes.
“At a really young age my dad introduced me to The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, The Guess Who and Randy Bachman. He’s a drummer and he wanted someone to play music with him. When I was nine he bought me my first guitar and it grew from there.” This led Raquel to her love of songs and songwriting. An accomplished guitar player, she added the mandolin to her arsenal as well.
Raquel released her first single “It’s For Real This Time” which earned her a spot on Sirius XM’s The Highway. "Writing songs has always been an outlet for me. This is a very vulnerable song,” she admits. “It’s what was going on in my love life at the time and thankfully writing songs is way cheaper than therapy."
In September 2015, she won the CCMA (Country Music Association of Canada) Discovery Award.

The first two lies that mislead and derail us from focusing on The One Thing (going small to get big results) are:
1) Everything Matters Equally - NO IT DOESN'T! Equality is a LIE! However, when we live in a world where everything seems urgent and important, everything SEEMS equal. We will talk further about this lie so we can understand how to dial into the things that really are important - and thus, get down to THE ONE THING that needs to become your focus in order to achieve the results you desire!
2) This concept of Multi-Tasking is also a LIE! There is a quote by Pulilius Syrus - "To do two things at once is to do neither." If doing the most important thing is the most important thing, then why would you try to do anything else at the same time? It is a good question and this is what we will discuss as we talk about the lie of multi-tasking!
Mark Twain said, "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." We neeed to dismiss these lies we are led to believe so we can fully understand and buy into this concept of The One Thing that truly is the secret to achieving extraordinary results!
