Quote of the Day

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.
Yehuda Berg

Business Tip of the Day

Business Tip of the Day: Find a need; solve a need.

Ask yourself, “What do my clients need? What can I do to help?”

Now start brainstorming some ideas to meet those needs. Watch how these ideas lead to other ideas. And from there even more ideas.

Find a need; solve a need.

To write or not to write?

Write.

Just feel like putting a few thoughts to paper. Plus I took a morphine pill and I always come up with a few crazy ideas while I’m on medication.

I just want to start by saying Thank You to everyone who is starting to enjoy the blog. It is no where anything I really want it to be, but you have to sweat, bleed, and cry sometimes to see improvements. Please stick around and by all means, HELP ME OUT!!!!!

Let me know what you want. I am here as an outlet. What I post is to raise awareness to issues close to my heart. I would love to expand my heart to some of your issues. Hell, they may already even be there, you may just have to remind me it’s in there somewhere.

As I mentioned I have cancer, testicular cancer. It’s not as bad as some cancers, but it’s still cancer. It keeps me up at night, it keeps the infected area in pain, and it scares the fuck out of me.

I was diagnosed in both testicles, but opted to only have one removed and am trying to cure it naturally. So far, so good. The last sonogram I had, the numbers increased and decreased, so the doctor told me it was probably just a misread. Fuck you, asshole.

I don’t have another sonogram until March, because of some things I have in place with the doctor, but I don’t want to hear probably. And today, the oncologist’s office called me and told me they had to reschedule my next CAT scan to March. Fuck you, asshole.

Anyway, how does any of this pertain to writing, well, it’s what’s really spurred me to sustainability and marijuana. Two major industries I would like to apply my skill sets to. Solar, wind, permaculture, and natural remedies are being subjected to lies and misinformation, and I would like to help with the change. Because lets admit it, it’s going to happen.

We are slowly going to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels, I just believe it’s my duty to help sooner and hopefully help speed up the process.

Thank you all again for the support and please don’t shy away from putting me in my place. I actually like a well thought out, heated debate.

Happy writing everyone.

Dear Critic

Dear Critic,

Time to get the lead out of the ass and get to work. Thinking and not doing isn’t going to get me anywhere. In order to improve in life, I am going to need to start taking action. No more hiding. No more postponing. No more. Can’t let distractions get in the way. Have to stay focused and do the job I tell everyone I do.

The skills are there, time to put them to use. I have the knowledge as well. Why do I want to waste them? I have a message and a calling, it’s time I utilized them. Fear is an obstacle easy to overcome. Plus nothing good ever happens from the sidelines.

Have to get in there and play ball. Time to put on my big boy pants and let the world see me. If they don’t like me, well fuck em. Some people will. Not everyone will, but some will.

It’s time to let go of the things getting in the way of self-improvement. Time to let go of the things holding me back. No matter how much it hurts. Those that mind don’t matter, those that matter don’t mind.

I can spew out all the positive reinforcements I want, but unless I actually get out there and do it, nothing will ever change. I no longer want to be bound by the thoughts of others. This is my life, my calling, no one is going to stop me from achieving my dream. I don’t care if they think it’s a stupid dream, its my fucking dream. To hell with them.

There are people of encouragement, but they’re so far away, it doesn’t help. Yes, there are ways to communicate, but I don’t want to infringe on other’s time, so I try not to bother them. Yet, I drop everything to help others in their times of need. They say Karma is a two way street, maybe I should start asking when I need help.

It’s always scary to admit you need help though. I think this is why I don’t ask. I feel like I can do it all by myself, and am learning, I can’t. I do need…

Times up. Time to go.

To write or not to Write?

The start of a new year and the resolutions for many has begun.

I’ve have only set one resolution for myself year after year and that was to quit smoking. I accomplished that resolution in 2013.

I find myself wondering if I should set a new resolution. I have thought about it and am still unsure if I should.

Why do we set resolutions?

Most of the resolutions that I read about are all selfish ones. Get in better health. Quit smoking/drinking. Spend more time with family, less time working.

Why is it that you never hear volunteer at a soup kitchen, start up a non-profit for under privilege children, join a foundation to help with the environment?

So here is my resolution for 2014: Make enough money to have the time to give hope.

In order to do this, I have to obtain clients.

On January 13th, I plan to have my free report, about page, and action plan completed.

The reason I think so many people fail at their resolutions, is that they do not have a comprehensive plan set. Most just think, I’ll eat better, go to the gym and I will get into better health. Not realizing dedication and organization are the key.

A plan not thought out, is a fool proof way to not achieve these goals. Most get lost in the translation.

This happens in writing as well. I have a schedule for my writing. Certain days I focus on different aspects of my career. It is all in my calendar.

The best thing about my calendar is that it allows me to change it up. There is one thing I need to accomplish for a day. Write 1,000 words or more a day.

When I do this, the rest of my day is completed. I know this doesn’t sound like much, but trust me, it is.

If I don’t run, I start to feel sluggish. The same happens if I don’t write my set goal of words a day. Although, I don’t feel sluggish. I feel as if something is amiss.

When this happens, I open a blank page and start to write. Like running, this helps clear my head.

I have been absent from my blog for a few days. This was done on purpose. Every time I logged in and hit New Post, I felt no need to write. I knew I should have written something, but I opted out of it. I wanted to give my mind a few days to rejuvenate.

I still wrote in my journal, dream log, and worked on projects for work, I just didn’t feel the need to blog.

Here is another error most make in their resolutions. A few days of inactivity and they give up. There is nothing wrong with taking a few days to yourself. It is no more selfish than most of the resolutions we set for ourselves anyway.

There were a few times last year I had a cigarette. Did this mean that I had given up on quitting. Absolutely not. It just meant I took a small step in a different direction than I wanted.

If we make no mistakes, we will not learn. This is why I did not beat myself up when I relapsed. I told myself, “Thats fine, you had one cigarette. It doesn’t mean you are smoking again.”

This attitude kept my resolve strong and I moved on. The same with my writing. If I don’t finish some goal I set for myself to improve, I don’t worry about it. I forgive myself.

Don’t beat yourself up if you relapse from time to time. Its human nature. We are not perfect beings by any means. We are adaptable creatures.

Happy writing everyone.
