Just Peachy….

I was on Facebook with it’s FB memories reminders.

That seems to be the only thing I update on Facebook, come to think of it.

Meaning next year I will be reminded about the memories FB reminded me of today.

Nothing new under the sun.

Went emo couple of days back with the blog I published.

That day sucked, but I’ve had worse.

The morning sex usually helps with improving my mood.

But my partner in crime was not available for the joint venture so I turned to food. I was out of beer.

Self gratification gives me minimal pleasure. Not as satisfying as the excitement I get in conquering the female body into orgasm…I digress.

So I took baby girl to daycare in the morning.

Did the dishes.

Took a nap.

Bathed and headed for work.

I took the time I spent offline focusing on what’s going right, even though the world is on fire around me.

Reminds me of that hell scene when John Constantine went for a quick peek in that Constantine movie.

Things could be better, yes, but bitching about them won’t change them much.

Sometimes the discomfort you are experiencing now is nudging you forward, not backward.

Busy praying for deliverance from your current unhappiness but you’re not happy with the process it takes for your prayer to be answered.

S*** will always hit the fan. Even more so when change is coming.

Think it’s a matter of riding it out. But to always keep your eyes on the price.

That’s why goals are important.

Without them, what’s the point of living?

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.

What Do You *MEAN* Just Relax and Trust??!

Sometimes the negative event that is happening in your life is caused by the negative attitude you have towards it.

Remove yourself from the situation if you can or at least delay your emotional reaction from it for now.

Do something else that will allow you to focus completely on that something else.

Something totally different from the thing that upsets you.

And enjoy yourself while doing this positive task.

Whatever the task, the objective is for you to achieve an improved emotional & physical state that outshines your previous state.

What usually happens when you Let Go & Let “God” is that when you come back to the challenge, you would be in possession of inspired action for you to take in order to overcome your challenge.

Or better yet,

You might even find the problem has been solved all by itself.

Your improved mood sends out positive, powerful frequencies that solves far more problems than any negative, weaker mood could.

Sometimes doing nothing could be the best thing you could ever do…until you feel INSPIRED to act on your situation.

Those actions have proven to produce the best results in history.

Thank you.

I love you.

Rich Dad…and Then Some!

“A person is limited only to his or her reality of what is possible financially.

Nothing changes until that person’s reality changes.

And a person’s financial reality will not change until he or she is willing to go beyond the fears and doubts of his or her own self-imposed limits.”

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey – Part 2

Update: This is comeback from Part 1.

I don’t want to dwell too much on the man with this post, but if you are really interested in him you can find out more about Stephen R. Covey him on his homepage.

Please take note that these are just notes I found interesting within Stephen Covey’s best seller.

I would recommend you get yourself a copy because my interests might differ from yours.

If you might be reading this from home CNA, or Exclusive Books might have one available for.

If not, try asking one of your family members or your friends’ aunt or try bribing the librarian for a copy…or maybe not.

If all fails my partner in crime – Amazon.com – can meet you desire for this must have inspirational book.

So as promised in my previous post here are the 7 habits by Stephen Covey, put in my own words for better understanding (guess those English classes I took at high school have paid off).

The 7 Habits are as follows:

1. Be Proactive

– To my understanding this means you should rather take action rather than having to make a reaction.

– As in having control of a particular situation, for example, rather having the situation control YOU

2. Begin with the end in mind

– Which I personally believe refers to the power of having a vision , which can be has been well documented by John Assaraf in the May/June 2008 edition of the Succeed Magazine.

3. Put First things First

– This I believe refers to the ability of prioritizing.

– In my cases doing the house chores first before going to check up on the “Mrs.”

4. Think Win Win

– During any interaction one must strive for the “Win Win” principle.

– Walking out of deal were one feels that they have “lost” and the other has “gained” or vise-versa, means you haven’t successfully grasped the concept of this particular principle.

– It’s Win-Win, not Lose-Win or Lose-Lose.

5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood

– …how can I put it?

– Ok let’s say you want to put your point across, it is best to understand the other person (sniffing out the emotion from the issue/concern) before you bring forth your issue/concern to the table.

6. Synergize

– This requires for one not to under perform on any of the above mentioned habits.

7. Sharpen the saw

– This could be explained better in a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“That which we persist in doing becomes easier – not that the nature of the task has changed, but our ability to do has increased.”

These above mentioned habits are not as simple as I have laid them out here.

Stephen R. Covey has constructed them in a way that Habit 1, 2, and 3 are associated with your Private Victory.

Whereas Habit 4, 5, and 6 are linked to your Public Victory.

“…there is a gap between stimulus & response, and the key to both our growth & happiness is how we use that space.” – Stephen R. Covey.
