4 Types of Human Hunger

“Making money isn’t hard in itself,what’s hard is to earn itdoing something worth devoting your life to”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Thought of the day…

A question on the panel in #PlentifulLiving101. There are 4 types of hunger where people are striving to be fed.

1. Money – people need more of it. Something is always due or overdue. You fake the funk and rob Peter to pay Paul then go about it as if nothing is wrong with your right. You live in a fantasy because reality is too scary for sight.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. –Benjamin Franklin

2. Time – not enough of it exist. Work 8 hours to come home and prepare for tomorrow. You’re too tired to do anything else but complain you don’t have time. Waiting for Friday to eventually realize that it’s Monday already and you’re back to the same routine.

TIme quote
3. Security – nothing is guaranteed but life and death. I hate to inform you, but that good job isn’t either. Don’t be fooled and retire with just a pen. You better hope your 401K is still in tact. You should be accountable to you and everything else should be secondary. It ain’t like it used to be and if it was, don’t you want to be FREE.

“If a company won’t hire you, why don’t you start your own company? Steve Jobs created jobs, he didn’t apply for them. #Startup your dreams.”
Jarod Kintz

Dave Ramsey Quote
4. Spirituality – without it, people are misguided, mislead, misdirected and confused. They focus on external connections versus internal. When spirituality approaches them, they take credit for them being relieved for all of the problems above. Nothing can be done without a great relationship with the supplier. For HE provides a way to get through and be open to something new.

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
Francis of Assisi

 

Nevertheless, the combination of money, time, security and spirituality can cause one to think long and hard or just continue going about their daily routine of existing and not living. All are needed to survive and thrive. At some point, one must have a conversation with self. Be real!! If there is lack, increase won’t take place until you take action and move in a different direction in one or all areas of your life. Is it time to get busy?

5 Tips to Remain Focused Everyday

Stay Focused0

Seeking strength in a greater source allows you to live life with purpose. Stay away from dream thieves and naysayers. Open your mind to what could be and what is. Everything you need to be happy is inside of you. Listed below are five tips to steer you in your lane of success. Remain focused, dream it, believe it and aim to achieve it.

1. Wake up every day with a true purpose. What do you plan to do today? What do you need to accomplish it? How close will you be towards achieving your goals? Having direction in your life gives you stability. There is no time to sit around and wait for something to happen. You take the first step and make it happen.

 

2. Love yourself first. If you don’t love you, how do you expect others to give you the respect you deserve? You should set the example as to how you want people to treat you. Expect the best and forget the rest. If you expect less, you will get less. Give yourself a hug. Try it! It makes you feel so much better and it gives you instant love.

 

3. Speak what you want into existence. The tongue has been called the greatest weapon. It can commit a blessing or a curse. It literally has the ability to destroy others you speak to and those who speak to you. Be contentious of what you say. If you believe it, make it happen by saying it. The more you say it, you begin to feel it and the universe has a way of bringing it to reality. Only allow positive language to enter your ears.

 

4. Develop a “I can and will attitude.” Work hard every day to make your dreams a reality. You are the captain of your ship. If it sinks, it’s because you allowed it to happen. Don’t let anyone steer you in the wrong direction. Take control and lead it all the way.

 

5. Seek and work with a mentor. Mentors are good for so many reasons. Everyone needs someone in their life who is dependable, honest and supportive even during mistakes. This person should know your goals and attempt to help you achieve them. Make certain this person is willing to be there every step of the way, good and bad.

 

“Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.”

-Orison Swett Marden

I’ve learned to have a great day regardless of what and who I encounter. The world is filled with critics/haters who find wrong in everything you do. In fact, their goal in life is to make certain you fail and never recover. People are so quick to point out your faults while they ignore theirs. Ignore ignorance and stay focused on what makes you happy. You are entitled to live your life the way you please. Be encouraged!! Many blessings and much success!!

5 Checkpoints of Change in your Career

Don’t FEAR change!! No matter how you feel about it, change is an inevitable part of our lives. It can be controllable, but for most, they are at the mercy of change. Learning how to accept it, embrace it and roll with the bumps and bruises of it makes you not only resilient, but capable of bouncing back sooner. Creating goals is something that should remain a constant in your life, whether you use them to plan your career, start a project or start a new life. Goal setting helps us see more clearly where we need to go and what we need to do to make that happen. Follow these 5 tips to help you gain perspective in your career and be an agent of change.
1. Seriously evaluate your reasons for wanting to change careers or get promoted in your current position. Ask yourself honestly if you want to change because you don’t like your job, because you don’t like your employer, or because you have an interest in gaining new skills and abilities and expanding your horizons. The last reason is the best reason to make a change.
2. Gain any additional training or education you need to realize a smooth transition into a new position or employment opportunity. If you don’t know what the educational requirements are for a new opportunity, then find out. Visit the BLS http://www.bls.gov to find out what the job requirements, educational requirements and salary are for the job or career field you intend to enter.


3. If changing careers, know that you may have to start from the ground up. This may mean a salary cut. If you know you will have to take a reduction in salary, then make up for it by finding a way to budget your expenses until your salary catches up with you. You should also evaluate whether you can afford changes to your salary. Hopefully, a career transition will eventually (or immediately in many cases) result in an increase, rather than decrease in salary.
4. If you plan to leave your current employer, always be sure to give them advance notice so they have time to find a replacement if necessary. This is especially true of highly technical jobs, where it can be hard to find someone on short notice and train them well enough to do the job right. You never want to burn bridges because you never know what may come out of change.
5. If you are confident that you want to change careers but aren’t sure of what you want to do, consider going into business for yourself. Evaluate your skills, abilities and talents. Look at your financial situation and assess your management and organizational skills. Many people have hopes of one day creating their own business. Now may be the time to do this. Just be sure you prepare for a big change like this by researching the home business process before you leap right in and quit your job. Many people who decide to start their own business end up keeping their jobs and working on their business part time during their off hours. This is a good way to give you time to wet your feet and get a feel for whether a home business is something you really want to start. This will also allow you time to evaluate whether you can really make enough money from it to support your family if need be.


No matter what decisions you make, when career planning for change it is important you always take your time to evaluate and analyze your decisions from numerous levels and perspectives. Always keep in mind that the grass may not be greener on the other side. Yet you will never know if it is or not if you don’t at least take a closer look. Never make decisions in the heat of the moment and always be sure to research your alternatives and new occupations before you leap right in. If you consider all options and clearly observe your goals and objectives, you will realize and reap much success in your career planning journey.

The 6 Passages of Righteousness in Business

Righteousness

Business is tough and in order to remain on top, you have to be a student of the game and a believer in your efforts. What you do and how you react is conclusive of your success and the results. Take a bite out of these tips and see if it makes a difference in your life.

1. Keep a close ear. Don’t be nosey, but listen to those customers who are unhappy with their current provider of service. Offer suggestions to resolve and be a resource. If it doesn’t work out, guess who they will call.
2. Be the expert in your field. Customers like to work with someone who has an edge over what they are facing. By providing your expertise, you will be the go to person when an issue arises and hopefully solve the problem.
3. Return all calls or designate someone to do it. You never know who’s on the other side of that line. This could result in missed business opportunities. Be proactive just as you would want someone to do for you.
4. Continue to educate yourself and your associates about what you do. Attend webinars, take a class, read a journal or book. Seek experts in your field that you admire and reach out.
5. Ask for preceptorships with your customers to learn more about what they do. How can you help the business if you don’t know much about their operations? One on one customer service goes a long way. Not only will you build rapport, but you will possibly spot other areas where you can be of assistance.
6. Treat others how you want to be treated. In business, we often grasp the holier than though attitude if everything is going smooth. Rocky roads are inevitable. Utilize your contacts and resources wisely. Be nice to everyone and expect the same in return.

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

Live a Life Worth Repeating…

Live Life

“If you start the day reading the obituaries, you live your day a little differently.”

David Levithan

For some, life zooms past us during our working years at the blink of an eye. Consistently, it’s the same daily aspect of wakening up to go to work, getting off work and turning around doing the same thing the very next day.  It’s no big surprise why some ask themselves, “How did I get old so quick? Where did all the time go?” Well… time stands still for no one. Unless you use and make every second count, you will find yourself on the other hand of time with no restart button.

The issue is in the daily routine of work. The human personality has this propensity called deletion. Anything that continues to rehash, the memory does not record. Basically because it’s just not worth considering or remembering for that matter.

So…. how can we respect each experience of time and not neglect your life in the process?

The answer lies in you creating self-care, self-awareness and a desire that dwells deep inside of you. In essence, it is a realistic view of an elevated condition of familiarity with your own consideration, sentiments and daily activities. At the same time in the event that you can’t do that yet, you can begin by honing in on these three thought provoking questions.

As you lie in bed and before dosing off, ask and answer these three questions:

  1. What is one thing I am thankful for on this day?
  2. What and how do I anticipate tomorrow?
  3. If I had to choose how my day will go, what would that look like?

I call these straight forward brain teasers that will encourage the beginning of creating something great? All things considered, let me share the rationale behind them. The first question requires you to thoroughly consider your day and discover something you’re truly thankful for. As you do that, not only will you discover something to be thankful for, you will likewise have reviewed your whole day from a much larger perspective. In Neuro-Linguistic Programming, we call this recapping an overall perspective and justifying the importance of a circumstance. Try this! Envision placing your everyday experience into a container, put a top on it and then name it, “The Way I View My Life”. Having a considerable amount of these containers in your thoughts sorts your memories into noteworthy encounters or folders per se’ instead of having them as one extensive cluster called, “My Life.. How I Hoped it Would Be”.

The second question entices you to look forward in time and envision what’s going to or what you hope to happen tomorrow. When you have something to anticipate, it makes this characteristic more appealing to the mind and gives you the drive and energy to make it happen. You will feel inspired the minute you wake up. It will be the first thought on your mind and your self-sensor will provoke you to act on it.

The third question uncovers your deepest desires based upon the fact that we typically decide to dream about what we need and wish for. This solidifies your path and reason which later clarifies your desire to want it even more.

If you ask yourself these three questions on a regular basis, you will have a greater respect for the time you have and it won’t seem to fly by. You will begin to focus on the important aspects about your life and have a clear perspective to do what truly matters. Live life intentionally, full of joy and do what makes you happy.

Start a Business with Little Capital

Business pic 1

“Many people work the business wrong, then claim the business is wrong when it doesn’t work.” – Len Clements, Founder & CEO of MarketWave, Inc.

“Don’t hate what you don’t understand” – John Lennon

Most people dream of starting their own business, but most don’t have enough capital to do so. The most popular business in America is McDonald’s. It has a recognizable name and most everyone has eaten at one. To become a franchisor, the company requires a minimum of $750,000 of non-borrowed personal resources to consider you for a franchise. The average person doesn’t have that so they continue to look for something that they can afford. The reality, most brick and mortar highly profitable franchises are going to cost a significant amount of money to start. They are also going to require liquid assets and a book of financials to offer you the opportunity. Not to mention, the fees you will pay to use and profit from their name.

If you still are interested in becoming a business owner, may I suggest you consider multi-level marketing? The reason multi-level marketing or MLM’s are so popular is because of its low cost to become a business owner, the ability to work from home and the reality that you can run your own business from anywhere in the country. It literally is considered a franchise with little to no fee and the rewards are astronomical. Your small join or sign -up fee is buying a piece of a company, just like a franchise, that was started by someone else. You buy the opportunity to market the business, be the CEO of your own organization, use the products and even more, partner with other business leaders and earn an income while doing so. This income can be as large or small as you want. Depending on your efforts, your ability to learn and be coachable, you determine your growth from there. Now I must be honest and say this is not so easy to do. Just like owning a brick and mortar franchise, you must put in the work in order for it to be successful. This is the main reason why most don’t succeed at Multi-Level Marketing.

If you are considering an MLM home based business? It could be a very lucrative home based business option for you, but you should also know exactly whether or not what you are getting into is truly an MLM home based business or something else. Plus, you need to weigh out the positives and negatives of an MLM home based business before you decide that it is the right business for you.

Making sure you are actually getting involved in an MLM home based business, or multi-level marketing home based business, is important to save yourself some difficulties later. An MLM home based business involves the direct selling of products or services through the recommendations or endorsements of independent representatives/distributors. So, if you are the representative, you receive a commission on any sales that came from your endorsements. Also understand that most products sold through an MLM home based business are not necessarily advertised through mainstream media or in stores. They are considered specialty items and typically can only be purchased through you.

The confusing part of determining if your MLM home based business is legitimate is that there are a number of pyramid schemes out there that are dangerously similar to legitimate MLM home based business concepts. Remember, a pyramid scheme is illegal, and getting involved in one can cause you more trouble that it is worth. You will need to do your research into any MLM home based business that you are considering so that you are sure the MLM home based business you are going to run is valid and legal. Usually, if your investment in proportionate to the product or service you are selling, your MLM home based business will probably be valid.

There are a number of advantages to having an MLM home based business. First of all, you will be working from home where you can virtually set your own hours, which is probably why you are considering an MLM home based business in the first place. Also, you will not have to manufacture (profit saver) any products, because you are usually selling things that are already made and the MLM home based business will usually come with a pre-determined marketing plan. Many people suffer through the process of determining the most effective methods for marketing their products, but with an MLM home based business, you are relieved of that stress. Consider it a business in a box with all the bells and whistles.

The disadvantages of having your own MLM home based business, though, depends a bit on your personality. If you have good leadership skills and are as self-starter, then an MLM home based business will pose little hardship to you. However, if recruiting and selling gives you hives, then starting and maintaining an MLM home based business may be more of a challenge, since your success depends on your ability to be proactive in the business by possibly recruiting and selling your products/services.

Still, having your own MLM home based business means that you can live out your dream of being your own boss, having flexibility in your work schedule and create an extra stream of income that could possibly replace your current one. The cool thing is, you do not need any prior experience unlike most high paying jobs. You can rely on your personality, your desire to learn and your ability to share information as the benchmark to maintain your business.

Just like corporate America, MLM organizations look for leaders. Those individuals who have a desire to exceed expectations, help the organization grow and develop a rewarding lifestyle doing so. Still, do your research to make sure your MLM home based business is a legal business so that you can truly enjoy the true freedom that the MLM home based business offers. There are many opportunities to create the income and the life you deserve if you are willing to put in the sweat equity and work.
