Can You Stand The Rain?

I remember writing a post about avoiding pushing away your down days.

We can’t be working at peak levels all the time.

24/7.

365.

But moods can be managed.

And do agree with Tony Robbins on listing out things that trigger your feel good mood.

Especially what you do with your body when you are happy.

Music does it for me.

Listening to Pro, who once known as ProKid, does it for me.

But Rihanna‘s song a doing for me as well lately.

It’s kinda hard checking out her music videos though.

With so much ass and boobs you could swear you’re watching porn.

Maybe America is de-sensitized by nudity.

Hey, sex sales I guess…I was under the impression that it’s her talent, skill, hard work that’s making her stay on top of her game.

Maybe it’s because I don’t watch porn anymore after watching this Porn Experiment.

I digress.

So physically, to trigger my feel good vibes:

  • I have my shoulders back,
  • eyes are wider,
  • I move my hands a lot,
  • I smile,
  • I speak louder and faster,
  • I lean forward when I talk,
  • I make more eye contact,
  • my face is more animated,
  • take deeper breathes and expand my fingers.

But that’s me, I don’t know about you.

My challenge to you is to find a way to decode your body into tricking your brain into feeling good.

So when you feeling offish, there’s a chance you are shooting off your “offish triggers.”

Namely:

  • slouching shoulders,
  • short quick breaths,
  • sleepy eyes,
  • frowning,
  • closed off body language,
  • crossed eye brows,
  • feet dragging.

There a lot of things eternally that we can’t change, focused on what you can.

I found life is easier that way.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

“The Book You Never Read Won’t Change You”

Was just thinking about affirmations.

About how everyone uses them.

Some use them knowingly and a lot of us do not.

But how the most effective people use affirmations intentionally.

Deliberately leading them to situations they would rather be in.

To paraphrase, affirmations are statements you repeatedly say to yourself.

Which then influence your actions.

Which then generates the results you have in your life.

Some use this affirmation process to guide the direction of their lives to producing the results they want.

Some don’t.

This is not based on my endless research on the subject though.

I don’t have a PhD in Affirmations.

Nah, this is based on my personal experience.

At a time when I was at my most effective.

I use the word “effective” because I created momentum for myself, by taking action regularly with the assistance of this affirmation process, thanks to the good Dr Stephen Covey’s book “The Seven Steps of Highly Effective People.”

In fact I got jealous when I was having a meeting with a potential business partner and she mentioned that she’s going through it and was in love with the principles Covey was teaching.

Teachings at the time I place at the back of my mind.

It took me back to a time when I had a love affair with reading, on any subject, the weirder the better, which led me to this Seven Habits book.

A book that introduced me to the world of personal development.

Never be just a “passing” reader.

Take action on at least one of the suggested mentioned in that instructive you are reading.

Grow with every book or article you read.

The book you never read won’t change you.

A changed you is needed if you want to see changed results.

I love you.

Thank you.

You Have To Be Intentional

I am busy reading this book and there was a sentence that impacted me.

About how every process leads to a result.

How your current inactivity will lead to a certain result at the end of the month.

How your current activity will lead to certain results at the end of the month.

So in other words starting at the end and working your way back, to where you are now, is a good way to plan and achieve your goals.

That way you can begin now in doing the things and following the processes that will get you to where you want to be.

We all follow processes or habits that produce the results we get in our lives.

If you want to smell clean and fresh, you follow certain habits that produce that result…that being bathing, body spray and brushing your teeth.

If you don’t want to keep your job, then you can try out these habits, namely: show up late, you not meeting company’s target, behaving rudely to colleagues and clients.

And that’s a set of habits that will successfully get you fired.

So you could say everyone is successful, because even failing can be seen as something you can be successful in.

This due to the kind of habits you are successfully practicing.

If you want the results that your current habits of failure brings, keep applying those habits.

But if you want different results, then you should follow the process that will help you achieve them.

Success and failure are two sides of the same coin.

Sometimes we leave our success to the flip of a coin.

And call it luck.

Those who are wise enough to ask from those who have walked the path, so to make things easier for you.

By adopting their habits of success.

You follow the process and you will achieve the result that comes from your work.

In short, you are in control of the results you are getting in your life.

It’s a matter of being intentional about it.

I love you.

Thank you.

That Risky Single Source of Income Strategy

Being self employed is a step up from being an employee.

For me it’s owning a business that generates income monthly whether I’m there or not that really excites me.

I came to this realization from reading up on books like “The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy” and “Conspiracy of the Rich – The 8 New Rules of Money” as an example.

I also seeked out financial and business building seminars, and talking to women and men that have businesses of their own.

You will amazed at how many financial independent people out there are more than willing to share their “secrets to success.”

And what I discovered is that you can never be a rich employee if your salary is the only source of income.

With the way things are, you can’t even break-even (to meet your monthly expenses) with only one source of income these days.

Having money is only part of the goal.

The real goal are the things having many will offer me.

One of them being Time Freedom.

And having a big business where about 100 households minimum are benefiting from my products or services are rendering.

The aim now is to building and business or an investment that will produce an addition R10,000 per month after tax passive income.

There’s difference being active income and passive income.

The way I see it, no point getting a salary beginning of the month only to start from scratch come the 1st of next month.

No point getting clients that hound me with deadlines and then take centuries to pay me.

I don’t want to be attached to anyone’s strings.

I’m not anyone’s puppet.

I want to be singing what Pinocchio sang come the next two to five years: I had strings but now I’m free. There are no strings on me.”

How about linking up with mentors that support those dreams, so that I can leave a legacy for my children.

The Why is more important than the What.

Unlike opening up a spaza shop that shuts down when I die.

Look at it this way, we all have 24 hours in a day.

But some of us have found a way to make more money than the rest within the same 24 hour time frame.

So it makes sense to find someone who’s doing the thing you want to do financially and then duplicating what they are doing into your life.

The financial winter is coming.

Just saying it’s best being prepared.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

The Revenant

the-revenant-2015.39576

“A revenant is a visible ghost or animated corpse that was believed to return from the grave to terrorize the living.”

 

There’s this movie trailer with Leonardo and Tom about their upcoming movie “The Revenant” and how it’s based on a true story.

It had me thinking about how each and everyone of us has a story to tell.

Because for all of us, life is happening at the same time.

And those life experiences are experienced on different levels.

How each of us have a pocket of life stories to tell to anyone willing to lend an ear.

With some parts of our lives are more intense that others.

And how us overcoming such extremes can make for a good movie that inspire others.

About how through the countless pounding our bodies, minds and souls can take…WE ARE STILL HERE!

You are your own inspiring, true life story movie.

Remember that.

You are deserving.

You are loved.

You are successful.

You are sexy.

You are important.

You are brave.

You are strong.

You are awesome.

You are unique.

You are powerful.

You are beautiful.

So rise from the grave of negative definitions you have buried your magnificence in, and terrorize the living with your brilliance!

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

Capped Births

The mechanics of life
Keep clocking away
Grinding away at the tip
Filling away until the point of no return
I look to the side
Time rings my neck
Full 360
Turns my world around
2 faced
Like a flip of a coin
And I find it funny
Laugh myself into a state
I look and it’s too late
And she’s late
She feels used
By my dick and the fetus
Like focus
The world is full of us
Robust
Wonder who used to kill the extra baby when China had capped births
Now you see me now you don’t

“Look Around Less, Imagine More.” ― @AbrahamHicks

It been a while I wrote a blog.

Sometimes I overthink the process.

But all it is, at its basic level, is an online journal.

A glorified, online journal a friend of my commented.

Guess it’s this kind of glory that keeps me sane.

I love writing.

That’s saying a lot since some people don’t know what they love.

Love in the sense of the purpose and calm and joy you feel while in the act of doing the thing that makes you powerful.

It was a question I asked myself right before I went to bed with the real intention of wanting to “hear” the answer I come up with in the silent moments when I wake up the following morning.

It was an “I hear dead people moment,” obviously suggested by one of those life changing, surprisingly enjoyable read by Neale Donald Walsch.

One of those success habits recommended daily so to get in touch with the God within apart from the God you find in church.

Success habits that Tony Robbins put so well in that video <<

I love that video because he speaks about Gratitude.

Something I have not been exercising as I should lately.

Especially with the new develops in my life.

Got a whole lot of things to be grateful for so I can be energized with the strength needed to power through.

Philippians 4:13

I'm sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.
