Ed Foreman 10 Commandments For Life


I discovered Ed Foreman about 20 years ago.

From a farm boy to a self-made millionaire by the age of 26 and a former United States Congressman from two different states, Texas and New Mexico.

By the time he was 26, Ed had become a millionaire. He was president of Valley Transit Mix, Atlas Land Co., and Foreman Oil, Inc. He then spent a year providing an office and a secretary so the IRS could investigate him and find out how he could make so much money, so fast, and do it honestly. Ed became concerned about the power and control of the Federal Government, so he decided to go to Washington and change the system. (Ed quips “That shows how much I knew about politics”) So by the time he was 28, he was elected to the United States House of Representatives from Texas. The U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce named him one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Men In America”. Six years later, Ed was elected to the United States House of Representatives from New Mexico, making him the youngest man to be elected from New Mexico and the only man in the 20th century to be elected to Congress from two different states! Three years later he became Assistant Secretary of the Interior. Ed has been a close Advisor to five American presidents.

1. Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

2. Thou shalt not be fearful, for fear makes us weak, doubtful and unproductive.


3. Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them.


4. Thou shalt be honest and trustworthy at all times, in all circumstances. Honesty is the mark of a great soul; dishonesty is despicable.


5. Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you for they make very poor bedfellows.


6. Thou shalt not borrow other people’s problems. They can take better care of them than you can.


7. Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or ill—it is gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life today.


8. Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.


9. Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It’s hard to learn something new when you’re talking.


10. Thou shalt not become bogged-down by frustration, for 90 percent of it is rooted in self-pity and it will only interfere with positive action.
