    In one of James Allen's lesser known books, "Byways of Blessedness", he
    devotes the entire first chapter to beginnings. He writes, "Most beginnings
    are small, and appear trivial and insignificant, but in reality they are
    the most important things in life."

    Without a beginning you could have the greatest idea and the greatest plan
    in the world and you would still fail. Whereas a modest idea and an
    incomplete plan often produces success when accompanied by even an
    "insignificant" beginning.

    "Beginning" is just another way to describe the most powerful six-letter

    Hugely successful people, the kind who go from mediocre to millions almost

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
