Acclaimed motivational speaker, author, internet radio host, and commercial pilot, Richard Levy, knows exactly what it takes to succeed. By changing his thoughts and putting certain practices into place at a very young age, he has attained levels of wealth and prosperity many only dream about. The best news is this is a goal achievable by everyone who knows what he knows - and teaches.

Levy's "Thoughts Make You Wealthy" philosophy focuses on identifying negative habits and replacing them with abundant thoughts and behaviors. This practice cultivates personal and professional success. Levy's philosophy is practiced by many people across the country and around the world. He has helped transform the lives of those who put these practices into place.

Raised in Houston by a single mother after his parents divorced, life for a teenage Levy was challenging, frightening and looked bleak at times. But this dark period motivated Levy to focus on working hard, acquiring money and building wealth and success for himself. He never backed down from hard work and he quickly learned to put positive thinking habits into practice daily.

Having identified a passion for aviation at a very young age gave Levy the courage to dream about becoming a pilot, which he realized at the youngest age permitted by the Federal Aviation Administration. He also paid for his own education at the University of Texas - Austin and graduated in just three years. Soon after, he piloted military-transport aircraft in the United States Air Force. Levy is still a pilot for a major international airline.

Levy led himself to personal and professional success by implementing this positive lifestyle and now his pursuit is to help others learn to think their way to abundant lives of success, wealth, health and love. He conducts speaking engagements all across the country and regularly holds seminars to teach others his effective practices. His first book, Thoughts Make You Wealthy, was published in 2012. Levy lives in Chicago, where he enjoys spending time with his wife Anne and their two Morkies, Lucy and Ricky Ricardo
