Mr. Mitchell was born in San Bernardino, California where he attended the local public schools. He was born legally blind but no one diagnosed that problem until he was ten years old.

Donald W. Mitchell's Most Inspirational Spiritual Speaking Subjects

Live Better than a Billionaire on Five Dollars Extra a Day

Every day, billionaires make bad decisions that harm their lives. Their money also gets in the way of their relationships. Money can also make them lazy and draw them away from their spiritual paths.

Most people don’t realize that and make all kinds of sacrifices to have more money. When they get the money, they aren’t much happier. Why not skip getting more money, and start living your dreams now?

You can substitute a spiritual quest, intelligence and energy for money and achieve a life style that any billionaire would envy . . . on a budget of five dollars extra a day. Whether you’re interested in becoming a world class philanthropist, being entertained by celebrities, living in mansions, writing a best seller, uplifting the lives of millions or simply having a great family life, there are no limits to what you can accomplish. These principles are spelled out daily in his blog at

Apply the 2,000 Percent Solutions You Already Know

In The 2,000 Percent Solution (, Mr. Mitchell outlined how anyone can create and enjoy 20 times as many spiritual and material benefits with the same time and resources. It’s like cloning yourself 20 times! Applying his process around the world over the last 20 years, millions of people have seen their lives transformed for the better.

What’s the secret? You already know how human beings regularly achieve near perfection with God's help. You just need to take that knowledge and apply it in other areas where performance is low.

Do people forget to pray when their lives are on the line? Do many people fail to cash their paychecks? Do many soldiers fail to relax when ordered to stand “at ease”? Do many people fail to leave a hotel that’s on fire when they see flames, smell smoke and hear a fire alarm going off? Here are but a few examples of near perfection. In each case, the required action is unambiguous, the person acting has an incentive to take the right step and the individual has had lots of practice leaning what to do. After you look at all the examples you know of near perfection, you’ll be able to derive the universal principles that you can apply to any situation to achieve similarly near-perfect results.

Mr. Mitchell also offers inspirational programs on Spiritual Model Leadership, Using Your Spiritual Strength to Prosper through Adversity and Unveiling the Spiritual Genius within You.

May God bless you.
