Nothing Beats The Grind

After 2-3 weeks of submitting a minimum of 10 resumes a day, I finally got a job. My fiance’s family fed me during the holidays hustle.

A very humbling experience since I am a prideful man.

I don’t like getting handouts because in my life I’ve come to find that most handouts come with an IOU tag.

I don’t want to be indebted to anyone.

So being in the position I was in, made me grind harder.

I think I sent out those CVs and with me going to interviews between.

Some interviews where scams, some promising. But I kept submitting them promising or not.

Most people start slowling where nearing the finish line.

I slow down once I cross it.

Hell, I even turned to reading the bible.

You know shit’s hit the fan when I pick up “the book.”

It kept me going. That and seeing the unbothered smile on my daughter’s face.

She hit the side of her eye, that one, playing in the playgrounds at cresche.

Had to get stitched. Busy walking around with an eye the size of a golf ball. To put it mildly, she was not impressed seeing the world with one eye.

But I’m glad I was there to assist with the healing process.

But it was her mom that kept me above water mainly. There’s no one I appreciated more, beyond words even, than her, during this period.

I felt stripped of my title as a provider.

As a man, if I cannot provide for my family, what am I?

Feeling lost, going to bed with a broken heart. I was without purpose and I felt depressed.

The need to feel needed by corporate was overwhelming. Which felt like a contradiction because I promote the idea of owning your own business.

A purposeless, non providing, hypocrite of the a man.

And I knew if I start hating myself then there won’t be any improvement in my life.

So I kept my black ass working to keep from thinking negative thoughts.

Because my thinking was shit.

It worked, at face level.

But for lasting results, I need that deep kinda loving.

That only I can provide from the inside out.

The grind paid off.

Now employed on a probationary basis.

Work ethic + being intentional + the law of averages working in my favour produced results.

With prayer and work ethic, something’s got to give.

And it did.

As expected.

PS. This was a delayed post. My baby girl is all healed up now. Mischievous as hell. I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

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.

Proven Methods of Self-Improvement Because of Their Ability to Rewire Your Brain… 

I’ve been meaning to write another article about affirmations.

About what are affirmations and affirmation examples I use to when writing them out.

But I wasn’t writing them out of late.

Trust me I’m no affirmations expert or anything.

All that I blog about are from things I’ve read or experienced that I’m sharing with you, in the hopes that you would jump on it to add to your personal growth.

Like in this case, I’m sharing the wisdom I’m reading over the Think and Grow Rich book.

It says that written affirmations that are read out loud daily and with emotion do wonders towards building faith in the achievement of the things you are affirming.

Because a repeated statement you tell yourself increases your belief about that statement.

And the stronger your belief the better your chances of getting it.

How?

Like Jim Rohn says,don’t take that class.

But if really want to know then my suggested reads are The Science Of Getting Rich and Think and Grow Rich. 

They explain the mechanics that come with the power of faith through repeated affirmations, and how they can work for you too.

Reminds me of a list of affirmations that I got from a gorgeous lady I had a crush on, but I was too possessive and she was also seeing someone so I stopped heckling her because it was getting too much and I wanted more but she didn’t, it was a mess shame… Drama. 

Anyways read that shit. 

It will change your life. 

I’m sorry. 

Please forgive me. 

I love you. 

Thank you.

How to Be the Captain of Your Ship

What is your objective?

What do you want to achieve?

What is your intention?

What DO you want?

Because when you’re focused and clear on the “what” the “how” will show up.

And all that you need to do from there is to take advantage of the opportunity that will show up for you.

You must put all your energy in the “what.”

You must put aside the anxiety & worry & fear & doubt that comes with figuring the “how.”

You must visualize and imagine and see in your mind’s eye the end result of what you would like to see happen.

Your end objective.

Write it down every morning when you wake up.

Write it down every evening when you go to bed.

Let your brain attract ways, better and easier ways, of attracting it for you.

And that’s just one way to actively use the Law of Attraction.

Stay focused and the Law will honor your focus with opportunities for you to take inspired action on.

I love you.

Thank you.

I Guess, In Life, That Would Be The Fun Part Of It All, How Plans Don’t Have To Make Sense In Order For Us To Achieve Success

Have you ever considered doing something that has nothing to do – at a conscious level – with getting closer to the goal you have set for yourself but were enticed to do it regardless, as if it would be that butterfly effect my friend mentioned in passing?

How a single flap of a butterfly’s wing could cause a tidal wave due to the law of compounding action. Of how even our slightest gesture can lead to an endless series of effects that can have a dramatic effect on the whole planet.

Because most of us don’t see life from a bird’s view, the whole mosaic of it all.

We can’t see how even the most insignificant inspired act can eventually link to the major goals we set for ourselves. Our own customized tailor-fit ultimate shortcut to success.

“The Universe rewards action.” – Dr. Joe Vitale http://www.mrfire.com

Trust.

If you can’t trust yourself then who can you trust?

There are unexplainable events and thoughts that we have & come across in life. I am so, so, so tired of wanting to find out the “whys” in their functionality. Wallace Delois Wattles was right when he wrote how it was best I not waste my time in tumbling down the rabbit hole of why these …laws, principles, truths work.

I should just get to using them and only after I get the results that I want would I then faff about the HOW they work.

It’s just that going on a limb over a hunch or an impulsive idea is so uncanny. I mean, what would the neighbours think (Musa grins)?

At some point we have to come to terms that we aren’t just these meat suits we carry around that need to go to the toilet, sleep and eat, amongst other things, but we are a condensed form of the same thing.

Energy.

A condensed form of energy that has instant access to Infinite Intelligence. I say this because energy does not die. It merely changes form.

Thought is energy.

So every thought man has ever thought still exists, right now, in invisible form. Like a vibration. Not “like” but it IS vibration since one of the characteristics of energy is that it vibrates.

Condensed meat suits of vibration we are.

We attract whatever it is we are in vibrational harmony with (the Law Of Vibration) and one of the ways we do this is is through thought.

Thoughts are things.

Infinite Intelligence.

Can you imagine the magnitude of this concept of Infinite Intelligence?

Of how you and I can gain access to the industry changing, technology advancing thoughts of others that have lived and are still living by merely tapping into the formless substance known as Infinite Intelligence.

Get a copy of Think and Grow Rich to get an idea of what I am talking about when I talk about “Infinite Intelligence.”

And what if this Intelligence throws ”random” ideas in your head for the mere purpose of leading you towards the goals you continue to affirm and meditate over because (by Law) you are making it your dominate thought, your dominate vibration, therefore attracting it [the goal] within your line of consciousness?

Lately I’ve been reading about people who sit for ideas…

A businessman who literally cut himself off from the outside world for an hour an sat on a chair with a pen and paper ready on his desk until he received an inspired idea(s) that he used to make successful breakthroughs in his business.

That is one way of tapping into this abundant, infinite source of supply that anyone can hook on to at a conscious level for their personal development in life.

What a beautiful concept. Doesn’t that make you feel wealthy already? Don’t you just feel healthier just thinking about it? Pun intended. Doesn’t a sense of relief shower through your whole body just knowing that all you have to do is to sit it out for the answers to your most pressing concerns to be revealed to you?

Success Is A Selling Job On Yourself

You have to sell an improved health condition to yourself.

You have to sell better improved relationships to yourself.

You have to sell a better financial condition to yourself.

It’s about selling and selling and selling a better you, to You.

Make a commitment to yourself to begin now the process of selling a Better You to yourself, every day & night of every day & night of your life.

Sell, sell and sell until you buy into it, that is, until the results show.

[affiliate link] Its Not Over Until You Win: How to Become the Person You Always Wanted to Be No Matter What the Obstacle – Les Brown.

Be enthusiastic about it.

Begin immediately!

Even as you read this, feel better.

Lock in to your image if success like and Eagle would its prey as it dives down to it.

See, in your imagination, the better version of you.

See yourself in your mind as already successful.

Feel happier.

Taste the deliciousness of the much improved relationships all around you.

Hear the ATM dishing out those clean, fresh smelling paper money for you, as you smile to yourself as enjoy the feelings of prosperity in your heart, even before the money has reached your physical hands.

Sell, baby, sell, baby, sell, baby, sell!!!

Flood that beautiful mind of yours with the health, love, success, achievements, riches, skills you would love to have everyday, as the first thing you do when you wake up to the last thing you do when you sleep.

The easiest way, what I would call The Shortcut To Success, is to become an unconscious success.

To unconsciously become ____________________________________________________________ [fill in the blank].

We do this by selling and selling and selling through self talk, affirmations (Try: “Day By Day, In Every Way, I Am Becoming Better & Better.” or “I am so happy and grateful, now that money comes to me, in large quantities, through multiple sources, on a continuous basis”), sensory visualizations, and taking control of what we think about and how we think about what we think about, again and again, directing our mind in effect directing our lives to a desired destination of our wanting.

My aim is not to give you a pump up until my next blog update, but to invite you to began to deliberately, and slowly project an image of how you would like things to be for you in your mind’s eye over and over and over and over again and again and again until it comes to you, through you.

Learn to see yourself as the [affiliate link] Deliberate Creator of your life through the thoughts you think. And one of the ways this can be done is through the Process of Autosuggestion.
