The Annoyed Leader

obama-looking-pissed-annoyedNothing that annoys me more than the “L” word.

Being a leader comes with responsibility.

Hence leaders are paid more than followers.

And that’s what I want, to be paid more.

Just not liking what I need to become for that to happen.

Like someone once said, people want to go to heaven but are afraid of dying.

For you to reach the end, a process needs to be followed.

Much like what my mentor mentioned during our sit down yesterday.

Freedom is not free.

So for my bank balance to grow, I need to grow.

And the recommended books that teach leadership will help with that.

It’s a continous thing though.

Every day I need to read for at least 15 minutes.

The good stuff I’m feeding my brain with come out in the form of my actions.

And that’s how all things change, through your actions.

Leaders are readers.

And in the long run, what I am seeing as my current reality will differ.

Especially since associations are important.

She also mentioned how pain is your friend.

Without pain then there is no growth.

That means you are comfortable.

Yet success is at the end of your comfort zone.

Because if you keep doing what you’ve been doing, then you will keep getting what you are currently getting.

But the rub is that this process of reading needs to be consistent, for the Slight Edge to have the time to kick in.

That’s why I need to be in it for the long run.

Because leadership is not limited to business or work.

Those that you are in charge of are looking up to you as a leader.

I like how Simon Sinek puts it:

“Leadership is a responsibility. It’s not about being in charge. It’s about taking care of those in your charge.” – @SimonSinek

A Business Like No Other…

new-mlm-companiesI think network marketing levels the playing field.

I could be wrong, it’s just my observation.

From my limited observation, businesses are handed over from generation to generation.

The only legacy I’ve seen being left the masses is poverty.

Some families are brought up with the option of aspiring to be business owner, while other families are sold the idea of becoming employees or self employed.

Asking the government to fix this in the form of land distribution, for instance, is as effective as the removal of our now current President from office.

But network marketing nullifies this dependent mindset.

The right one also offers you training and mentorship on how to succeed by also developing a business owner mindset.

But the best ones allow for your network marketing business to be passed on from generation to generation, just like these families I spoke of earlier.

With the right training to develop your skills, I believe anyone can succeed in what they put their minds to.

Multi level marketing included.

One of the hiccups I have with conventional business is the start up capital, amongst other uncertainties.

But obviously if you are committed enough and want it badly enough then you can find solutions around that.

I guess one chooses ones battles.

With me preferring minimum start up capital.

Minimal operational costs.

No overhead.picture2

With some part time but consistent work ethic, the results are predictable.

Results that can supplement my current salary.

Results that can be on par with my current salary.

Results that can eclipse my current salary.

A business like no other.

Look as a disclaimer, anything legit that allows you to make extra income is great.

Be it MLMs or another job or part time gig or strip joints.

I’m just talking about what I’m exposed to.

Do you due dilengece.

This working you way up to your salary month end only to start at zero the following month, is insane.

But most of us are doing it so it’s ok right?

I don’t think so.

The Innovator

Innovation-ImageI just found this interesting. Ayanda got me fascinated with these profiling websites.

It got me thinking about what makes me tick.

The below is in accordance to my personality in relation to my view of internet security.

Shoot…by the way:

Happy New Year (never too late)

You are a Calm and Curious Achiever

  • You are hardworking, inventive, calm and curious.
  • You take responsibility, are reliable, vigilant and practice self-control.
  • You appreciate creativity and are quick to learn new things.
  • If you are interested in technology, you are likely to be an early adopter.
  • You are well in control of your emotions and don’t get upset easily, making it easier for you to deal with stressful situations.

What does this mean for your online safety?

  • You have a tendency to think carefully before acting, which makes you naturally cautious when navigating cyberspace i.e. “Thinking before you Click”.
  • You’re more likely to be proactive about applying appropriate security controls.
  • In extreme cases, your high conscientiousness may make you vulnerable to well executed “social engineering” attacks that impersonate people with authority.
  • You try out new technologies and are quick to understand how these work.
  • You are likely to be more aware than the average person about the threats and risks associated with using these.
  • Your emotional stability allows you to keep a level head, even when under pressure or when dealing with a potential cyber threat. So-called people-hackers use psychological tricks to trigger your emotions (also called social engineering techniques).
  • Your ability to keep calm and control your emotions is a great tool to defend yourself from any of these attacks.

Be aware of:

  • Attacks that impersonate authority figures or being caught out while you are working too hard.
  • When you are trying out something new, make it a rule to learn about the potential risks and how to protect yourself; apply minimum security controls such as anti-virus, encryption and good, strong passwords.
  • Don’t trust any unsolicited email messages or phone calls, especially if it triggers an emotion and always think twice before you click.


Thought we should know more about me together see?

What Is Love…?

Banner_Backgrounds_questionsMen don’t like talking about their feelings.

Let me not generalize.

I don’t like talking about my feelings.

This pisses Thube off.

Instead of me articualting, with my mouth & voice like a normal person, that Thube on this particular daym the comment you made really upset me.

It stung even more when you kept bringing it up during the course of the day.

Making as if I out to make life difficult for you, which is the last thing I want.

But no.

Musa keeps quiet and walks around moody, being sarcastic and rude to my person.

This is because I associate talking about my feelings as a sign of weakness.

And I don’t want to be seen as weak man in the eyes of my woman.

So I don’t talk about it.

That’s very clever of me.

This obviously drops number of times we have sex because I’m mad at her and she’s not going to reward me with sex for shitty attitude I’ve been giving her.

Ending up with me considering getting it somewhere else, because I am not getting it at home…and it’s her fault…

…Very childish thinking this.

All the while, girl has no clue why I’m being so spiteful during our interactions.

And where do I expect her to quench her sexual needs when I’m being such a dick.

(See what I did there?)

This “weakness” kills relationships.

Well, it’s one of the things that kills relationships…then there’s money…but I digress.

I came to the realization of this story I’ve been telling myself while watching Tony Robbins “I Am Not Your Guru,” on the Netflix that I’ve been trying out with the night time data deals Homecloud is offering.

It gets tiring for Thube, hounding me to voice it out what’s eating at me.

The thought of her one day not coming to me, to “hound me” as I put, to only allow the rift between us grow into having us going our separate paths, shook me up.

Am I willing to have a bitch fit that leads me to losing the mother of my firstborn?

The love of my life.

My best friend.

My wife.

I decided to then drop the story I was telling myself about what my definition of being weak means.

To save my relationship.

By beginning to see communication as an essential element of what makes us a power couple. 51rV-3xwEJL._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_

The more we communicate, the stronger our bond, the more we can fill up each others love tank by communicating better with each others love languages.

The more the sex.

Communication is key.

It’s a difference between having a relationship & having a business transaction.

Because love is communication.



My Blog Island Theory


It feels like each blog is an island.

Whenever you open one to read, then you come up with a dead end once you’re done reading.

Wanted to figure out a way of linking each post to another.

Makes for an exciting way to spice up this blog site.

But I just need to find a way of not abusing the links I would be sprinkling on each update.

Nothing less exciting that opening up a blog to find it taken over by endless links.

Reminds for twitter updates spammed by numerous hash tags.

And now that they have extended their characters per tweet, I end up not following those that do abuse the use of the hashtag.

Oops, that link was supposed to have taken you to one my updates.

Supposed experts talk about having readers losing themselves in the abyss of your blogs, having links that link back to one another.

To only link you to another, then another.

Trapped in the coberwebs of Musa’s blog.


I forgot to what aim though.

Probably a monetary one.

So I guess I can start with referring to one of my latest ones.

Which talks about how to buy yourself to Heaven.

~ Musa


Buying Your Way to Heaven…

51NXzS5PJxL…Is the most selfish thing you can do.

I’m getting ahead of myself.

I love Neale D. Walsch’s take on heaven.

How it’s not a place good people go to when they die but a place good people go to when they are still alive.

Good people are good because of their actions.

The good they do boomerangs back to them in the form of good things happening to them.

Those happenings are what refers to as heaven.

So heaven from what he wrote in his book is more of an experience more than it is a destination.

I love that.

Heaven on earth.

Through your thoughts and your words and your actions, you create your own hell or heaven on earth.

So buying yourself to heaven by doing good pays off.

Because what comes around, goes around.

~ Musa


Work The Talk

94251daea9bbf8edba6262d02c2b9909--integrity-quotes-the-talkI usually write about things I am doing or have done. Affirmations isn’t one of them.

I think it because I know they work, but I don’t want to use them.

Not intentionally, now that I write about it, but unconsciously.

Self sabotage maybe?

So I want to give it real shot.

A daily habit that I would like to keep up with for thirty days.

Linking them to the goals I would like to achieve in these next 30 days.

Because I can’t be giving you tools that I don’t even use. Where’s the integrity in that?
