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

You’ll Find There’s A Science To This…

science-albert-einstein-formulas-mathematics-physicsI found this to be true when going over my vision board.

Whenever I achieve or receive something on my board I replace with something else.

While tracking the things I’ve attracted.

Just need to be more gutsy with the things I put on there I guess.

So be careful of the repetitive thought images you put in your head.

You might end up making them come true.

You keep thinking what you are thinking, don’t be surprised on the receiving.

It’s as natural a law as gravity.

So use that to your advantage.

There are tools out there that allow you to practice self suggestions.

But it goes deeper than that, especially when emotions are involved.

It’s like what Denzil Washington said about how you attract more of what you feel, than what you think.

I sometimes forget this, that’s why I write blogs like these to remind me.

There’s a science to attraction.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

Stay True

It’s important to hold fast to your truth.

Sometimes life can be like this morning’s cold breeze trying to push your focus away from your truth.

Strengthen your grip.

You know what you know to be true even though your current reality shows you otherwise.

Strengthen that grip.

When your fingers tire and you begin to lose your grip.

Then Philippians 4:13.Jon-Jones-stripped-of-title-1024x640

Because what you focus on expands.

Let your truth expand.

I love you.

Thank you.

I’m sorry.

Pleas forgive me.

Story Time

reading
It’s been a while.

Events of the past few months would have made for some pretty interesting posts.

Birthday things.

Sethu’s hilarious toddler mannerisms.

Small goals being reached and goals missed.

Social media breaks.

Friends being fired.

A growing business.

Relationship…disagreements and resolutions.

Work things and politics.

The list goes on.

The point.

Everyone has a story to tell.

It’s not a competition.

Sometimes writing things down makes you feel better.

There might be something in what you write that I might find helpful.

Who knows, maybe my prayers are going to be answered through your next blog update.

She does work in mysterious ways.

“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.

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.
