LQQK inside, Don't be scared!
How one homeless man overcame the streets and became an International Author
By: Bruce Goldwell
This cardboard box was meant to stir the curiosity of passerby’s and get them to stop for just a few minutes so that he could sing a song, tell a joke or give some entertaining presentation that would warrant a “tip”. For many, the box in front of him was enough to cause them to pull out their wallet and drop a small contribution into the cardboard container which served as his “Tip box”. When passerby’s looked into the cardboard box, there inscribed on the bottom were the words “World’s Largest Tip Box!”
He slept for three months in an alley only a few doors down from Dennis Hoppers house in 1999 and spent just short of ten years living either on the streets or in a vehicle. Now he is an International author with eight books available and a movie project that he is currently working on getting into development.
Six of his books are self-help books and the other two are the first of a books series titled “Dragon Keepers”. He has an agent in California and an animation company in Utah who are ready to work with him to make sure that the first of the “Dragon Keepers” movies is a huge hit.
Though once homeless, Bruce Goldwell is now a successful author, success coach and mentor and business advisor. He began writing his books while still on the streets and successfully acquired a publisher [Saga Books, Canada] which proudly makes Goldwell’s books available through their own web site as well as on the Amazon book site.
In the past year alone, Bruce has served as a business advisor for two companies, attended various meetings as a special speaker, and created a new concept that he formulated called Vision Board Subliminal’s to help people achieve their own goals and dreams. He also has an online community where he offers free advice and other help for his small but ever growing fan base.
Goldwell says that his time on the streets is a huge motivator in his desire to help others. Having people he was acquainted with on the streets die while he lived homeless among so many others that were also destitute, he became determined to reach out and assist others so they would never have to live that way.
“It is a humiliating way to have to live practically begging for money to survive. It can either make your stronger or it can beat you down”, states Goldwell. “I am one of the lucky ones and became determined that I would overcome that situation and do everything in my power to make sure others would not have to do that. However, it is also an experience I would not trade for anything in the world. It was a learning experience that gives me something special inside, that gives me a stronger drive to be successful.”
When asked “how” he has achieved what he has done, he lets others know that it is not the “how” that makes him successful but the “will”. He believes that anyone can have the “will” to have whatever they want to have in life; too many people just don’t use their “will power”. Goldwell admits that the reason he ended up on the streets is because he left so many things in life to chance. He says he spent most of his life before becoming homeless dealing with whatever came at him. Now he creates his destiny rather then waiting to see what will happen one day after another.
Goldwell doesn’t keep his new found secret a secret. He shares the secret of his success with others via his books, videos he puts up on YouTube, on his online community and whatever means he can as part of his commitment to help others so they don’t end up homeless.
One of Goldwell’s heroes is Bob Proctor who is a world leader in success and motivation. Bruce says that Bob tells people “if you want to become a millionaire - do what a millionaire does.” Bruce has coined a phrase of his own, “if you want to overcome adversity, poverty or destitution, do what Bruce Goldwell has done.”
