Take Care Of Your Number One Player

I have been writing, it’s just that I haven’t published any of them yet.

Busy out there f***ing shit up.

Mostly in my relationships.

I think my work stats are good.

My spiritual stats are lagging behind.

My physical health stats are in shambles.

I’m busy now seeing how far I can stretch and play around with my relationship stats.

I’m thinking of making new friends, it’s just that I cannot misrepresent myself, for the sake of gaining points with them.

I’m going to be as open as my offline personality is. And whoever bites, bites.

I think I’m too old to be playing make believe so I can be liked.

I just need to take better care of myself, that way I can attract better things in my life.

Like my Twitter crush for example, who inspired me to finally update this blog on our birthday month.

It’s not all gloom and doom.

Self care is essential.

You should try it too.

I love you.

Please forgive me.

I’m sorry.

Thank you.

Your Growth Is Limited By Your Environment

My latest favorite content marketing guy said I should document my life regularly.

So here I am, doing just that.

Imitate successful people long enough and you too will be successful.

Long enough and consistently enough.

So there was something a friend of mine wrote…

… I can’t say we’re friends, I mean I never met the guy but I do enjoy his tweets.

Anyways, the guy wasn’t feeling well, I mean we are human, and he posted how he had a bad feeling about today.

This was something which was out of character of him.

But then again, like the rest of us, he spends like 2% of his life on social media so what do I know.

Nonetherless we are what we think.

As a man thinketh, so shall he be.

So I politely asked he stop with his sh** and focus on willing the day into a great one.

But I did that mostly for selfish reasons.

I can’t be scrolling through my Twitter timeline with such negativity.

Like, I’m the most negative person I know.

That’s why I need this blog, YouTube videos, and other motivational just to make it through the day.

So I need those I follow to inspire me with every swipe on my phone.

To surround myself with positive shandis that will outweigh the negative, so that I can attract more people and things to be grateful for.

I think that’s why I’ve unfriended so many on Facebook and unfollowed on IG and Twitter.

Be picky about the people or things you expose your mind to. They unconsciously affect the life you live and the things you have in your life.

“Dead Or Alive, You Are Coming With Me.”

loopable-ekg-line-ekg-monitor-ekg-machine-heart-health-blue-ecg-monitor-shows-healthy-heart-beat-seamless-loop_sfw_cr5e__F0002

Been having a lot of pent up anger of late.

It compounds.

Lack of sleep.

Haven’t been reading a good book for almost a week now.

Missing out on my daily meditations.

Haven’t been rewriting my goals.

Not been listening to motivational audios.

Skipping motivational & educational videos.

It’s been months since I’ve been visualizing my success.

I haven’t been exercising as much as I did.

Been poorly taking my vitamins and supplements.

All things happening daily, gradually, to a point where I feel exhausted physically and mentally.

Dropping my emotional intelligence.

I’m in the business of where losing your cool would cost you your job.

That love and hate relationship of being concerned of losing the job you hate.

Where now I incorrectly blame others for my lack of self mastery.

You attract what you are.

Happiness is an inside job.

Won’t happen overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.

The rest is just consistency on your part.

Change begins when you take 100% responsibility of what’s happening around you.

To you.

Through you.

I Don’t Want To Be An Entrepreneur

That N word is such a burden.

It’s a cute thing to add on my social media bio that: “I’m an Entrepreneur.”

But truth of the matter is I’m on my PlayStation, while posting such on my Twitter page.

Have people thinking Musa is on “the grind.”

Kanti kuphi lapho…

Trying to promote an illusion on FaceBook, having people into thinking that you’ve got game…sh** like that will catch up to you.

Yes, I was on that stock market trading tip then the internet marketing grind. After that then it’s was the full time direct sales gig and what else…oh yeah, network marketing.

And in between that stuff, it was a 9-5.

It’s just there’s so much respect that I have for people who really run their business. Small business that they didn’t inherent. That seeing people claiming what they aren’t irks me.

It’s as if they are disrespecting the people who really are.

The businesswomen & businessmen who make those hard decisions like:

The Dream or the relationship.

Pay rent or the staff.

Full 9 hours sleep of guaranteed monthly salary or those sleepless nights not knowing whether the client will pay up on not.

People, a small percentage, really hustle out there hey?

Too busy to be posting motivational memes every 3 minutes on IG.

Success is boring.

Success is slow.

Success is consistency.

Success is long-term.

Success is worth it.

Social media allows you to post things that aren’t true.

But like all things, the truth shall out.

Live an honest life bud.

My take…I don’t want to be getting my money from only one income source.

I don’t think that makes me an entrepreneur. Or does it?

Coz that’s my endgame…

…hold up come I google.

Entrepreneur…

a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.
“many entrepreneurs see potential in this market”

synonyms: businessman, businesswoman, business person, business executive, enterpriser, speculator, tycoon, magnate; More

  • a promoter in the entertainment industry.

    “the music entrepreneur pulled back from financing a screenplay Hopper had written”

Shoot, then that means anyone can be an entrepreneur.

But those that do the work become successful entrepreneurs… Eventually.

It compounds.

Needed to put that disclaimer there.

And that’s the rub, being successful.

You need to work.

Taking the hits of becoming good at your niche, there’s no smooth sailing in this game.

Being embrassed for a few years that will set you up for life.

You either keep getting knocked around & being made someone’s bitch at your job or learn how to make something of your life.

Even Thokozane outlined on a tweet I retweeted #NoExcuses.

You need courage & mentoring if you are looking for additional sources of income that will eventually free you from a job.

Either that or keep complaining about your BS job.

You are worth more than than s*** job you are 10 seconds away from being fired from.

You weren’t raised to be someone’s bitch.

chihuahua-running-outside

Don’t be an entrepreneur.

Be a successful one.

No matter how long it takes.

Or die trying.

I don’t want to be an entrepreneur. But I want to be a hustler. For my family but more importantly for my well-being.

Go to where you are valued. If that means getting a job then go for it.

Financially it doesn’t make sense to me to only rely on one source of income.

That’s financial suicide.

My Blog Island Theory

slider_1

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.

Buhahaha!!

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.

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.

How A Turtle Can Run Circles Around You In Slow Motion And Still Leave You Breathless

turtle finding nemo Pictures, Images and Photos
My friend had a turtle tied to the fence with a rope, which acted like a leash, roped through its shell.

Once left untied, I was told, the turtle had a tendency of having a search party looking all over for him, thanks to the neighbours in the surrounding homes within their complex, which at times took the whole day before they found the little rascal.

In amazement I lifted the little bugger and gently placed him as near to the fence it was tied to as possible so to hopefully witness the speed it took to make its gateway, only to the extent of the rope it was tied to of course.

The jailbird eventually stuck its head out, maybe realizing that the coast might be clear for another prison break, and to my amazement, even though I shouldn’t have been – I mean it WAS a turtle – the little guy began taking little, turtle steps forward.

Slow, small turtle steps forward, one after another.

And here was a guy I was told that once I untie him and ignore him for less than 5 minutes, would do a Houdini on me.

But on taking a closer look, you could swear that each and every one of his steps forward were deliberate. As small as they might seem to the naked eye, this guy had the law of compounding effect on his side.

A universal law Jeff Olson brought to my attention in a book a friend borrowed me called “The Slight Edge.”

You might have heard of it?

In any case, Jeff made an example of this law of compounding effect by telling a story about two sons who where asked to choose one of two forms of inheritance.

Whether they wanted to receive 1 million dollars immediate cash over 1 cent every day that doubles every day (as in 1c becomes 2c which then becomes 4c and then 8c, etc)?

The one son chose the one million, which after 30 days amounted to half a million due to the economy, staff that needed to be paid, bad debts, loans, etc.

But the son that choice the 1 cent inheritance was worth over ten million dollars ($10,737,418.24c to be precise) on day 30.

Thanks to this Universal law of compounding effect.

Activating this law of compounding effect by actively being involved in day to day activities that bring you closer and closer to your goal, is a discipline that is easy to do, and easy not to do.

Keeping in mind that once you brake the chain of your daily compounding actions you lose its power, as in skipping a day makes success long in coming to you.

Some of the daily disciplines that Jeff Olsen writes about in “The Slight Edge” include:

» reading 20 pages a day from a self help book – an empowering book that provides you with applicable principles that you can begin using today to change your life for the better;

» listening to 15 minutes of a self empowering audio every day and going to a self improvement seminar or workshop every other month.

Yes, he was inspired by the great American motivational speaker and business man Jim Rohn who also preaches these kind of disciplines in his teachings & articles, articles I receive regularly via emails from subscribing for free on this site www.JimRohn.com by the way.

Jeff delivers this all the above disciplines so to change your Philosophy – See for more http://www.topachievement.com/slightedge.html – of life.

Which, according to his multi millionaire organizations he built and the people he does workshops with & his personal experience, determines the results of how our life turns out.

Through “The Slight Edge” Jeff Olson shifted something inside of me that invites me to approach for success with just small, disciplined, persistent, consistent actions towards my goal every day. Hence this article of appreciation for his work and positive, empowering influence on me.

My success will only “easily” come to me through the use of deliberate, planned steps I take daily towards it. Through what the author of the book “The Slight Edge” calls daily disciplines and not errors in judgment repeated over time that will sabotage my success.

This book should make up part of your personal development library I am recommend you buy yourself a copy on either (affiliate recommendation) Amazon.com or attract it in one of your local bookstores.

Thank you.

I love you.
