Gangster Letters

LetterHow can I use what I just read to improve my job?

How can I use what I have read to improve on my family life?

How can I use what I’ve read to improve on my income?

How can I use what I’ve gained to improve on my health?

~ Musa

Don’t just read for the sake of it my guy, read to improve on these areas in your life.

That’s what you did with Dr. S. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

How you tracked your day, hourly even, with what needed to be done per hour… you remember that?

You were Mr Super Effective!

Get that going with what you’re reading now, so to get the ball rolling.

You see were your wife’s thinking is headed? Because she anticipates the future and prepares for it.

Something you were doing before you stopped. Think it’s because you got what you wanted. 

Success stopped you. 

Re-visit this strategy. It worked for you and a lot of things improved.

Like right now.

Things need to improve buddy.

The Catch

1438677334-no-work-and-no-pay-keep-calm-and-carry-on-image-generatorRiding the taxi from Bree to Randburg, heading up for work, I was speaking to this guy I usually see in at work.

Talking about another a friend who got fired recently.

Financial commitments and then the next thing you get fired…

Geez.

Then the guy mentioned how it would be to everyone’s benefit to have something on the side to supplement our salary.

For this exact reason.

Because once your main, and only, source of income falls away then you’re fucked.

That “extra something” to carry you on.

Your financial spare wheel.

To cover your basic expenses at the least…

Imagine receiving the money you are making now, as extra income, over & above your current pay…

If you look hard enough you will find those people who live this “idealistic” lifestyle of having more money at the end of the month.

Instead for the crew you associate with who have more month at the end of the money.

The only catch I’ve found with these exclusive – almost private, communities is the work involved to get the results you want.

That boycotting motto of “no work…no pay” has never been more relevant.

If you want to get more, you need to become more.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

The Fixer

B33rFzqCYAIREuFSometimes when the road ahead looks very dark, anxiety levels go up.

That’s when I come to you God to help shed some light.

But if the road I’m taking vele has no street lights then I’m relieved knowing that you are by my side.

I’m taking this knee with this post because I’m also in dire need so my ancestors need to be also involved in this prayer.

Because without them I would be here, and without You they wouldn’t have been.

I light my candles and incense with this update in gratitude of what I already have.

Thank you for our business.

Thank you for our jobs.

Thank you for the shelter you are providing us.

Thank you for the water and lights that we sometimes take for granted.

Thank you for the food we eat.

Our perfect health and the rich relationships we have.

Thank you for the clothes on our backs.

And the large amounts of income that come to us through various sources, with increasing frequency.

All praise goes to you God.

I am bound to make flops along the way.

I just want to thank you for softening the falls.

Thank you for giving me the courage to fail forward.

Because there is no learning without falling. And I need to learn so I can grow to be my better self.

Continue guiding us through to our better self.

Yours in gratitude,

Amen

“All That Glitters…”

“​Twenty years ago we began studying how people become wealthy.

Initially, we did it just as you might imagine, by surveying people in so-called upscale neighborhoods across the country.

In time, we discovered something odd. 

Many people who live in expensive homes and drive luxury cars do not actually have much wealth. 

Then, we discovered something even odder: Many people who have a great deal of wealth do not even live in upscale neighborhoods.”

It’s reading stuff like that that makes me update my life’s goal because they remind me to have the right thinking and the right associations.

I get my thinking right then I will take the right actions that attract the things I want for my life.

Thank you.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Waking Up With Affirmations

You miss this part of your morning ritual and run the risk of being in the mercy of the day.

Keeping track of what you think plays a part in what you experience.ba7c9abb606c15dd012e0682228e828c

You tend to notice more of the things you think about.

This helps you in taking action on this things you are noticing, pulling them towards yourself.

So if you keep affirming the things you want to have, there’s a higher chance of you attracting them to yourself.

That’s were statements like “you become what you think about most of the time” comes from.

It’s one of the things that successful people do.

Most of them include affirmations in their daily routine.

Even if what they are telling themselves goes against what they are currently experiencing.

That’s why I think you have to adopt some form of insanity for you to be successful.

Because you have to believe it before you see it.

And affirmations help you do that.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

Being Better Than Your Old Self 

htwfaip​”The way to get things done,” says  [Charles] Schwab, “is to stimulate competition. I do not mean in a sordid, money-getting way, but in the desire to excel.” 

Ran our of characters for me to post this on Twitter so I’m posting it here.

Thought this was a cool quote.

Competing to be better than who you are.

From a book I’m reading again by Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People. 

Thank you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

I love you.

Who You With?

I didn’t really get the concept of fighting for what you want.

Not consciously.

I’m a lover so this fighting thing is foreign to me.

But when I took a step back to see how things are currently for me.

I see myself wondering further away from, what I thought, was my path to freedom.

A path worth fighting for.

Reminds me of a CD I listened to about by farmer turned multimillionaire business owner about feeding the dream.

Protecting the dream.

There are lots of dream stealers out there.

Yourself included.

So dunking you mind in an environment of people that keep your dream alive, is vital.

Not only for your ultimate goal in life but for your everyday success as well.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.
