A memoir of a small business journey and part one of many.
Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.
— Wayne Dyer
Good morning all. How would you rate yourself on a scale of positivity from 1-10? How many things in the past could you have controlled better with a different mind state? A more opened mind? Is it difficult to believe that you create every next waking moment? There is a choice. Negative energy can make us dull and weak. Stay focused don’t let it bring you down, but filter it so it becomes fuel for progress. Smile at a stranger! Make the cashier laugh at 7Eleven. Spread love. Have a good day!
One of the things I beat myself up about though is taking certain things for granted. When you got so much on your plate, so many things to do and think about, when there’s only 16 hours in the day (and that’s if I get 8 hours which is rare)… So much to get ahead, above and beyond that there’s things you mistakenly prioritize, forget, and eventually take for granted. But when your tired of being broke and there’s nothing else you can do but think about never going back, I will not lose. Just a mind drift….
“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”
- Albert Einstein
Sometimes we aren’t meant to get away from circumstances until we are prepared. I recall many situations where I didn’t know how or when I was going to surpass. It takes mind power to analyze why things are the way they are, dissect, destroy and rebuild. Getting ahead takes the best of you to make the rest of you. I’m on a mission. Smile at a stranger, spread love. Have a good day!
The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.
~Robert H. Schuller
In our own minds. As humans we tend to blame circumstances for our shortcomings when our imagination tricks us to accept the such as reality. When we decipher the signs and listen to our intuition nothing is what it seems. Reprogram, recapture, relive. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Don’t limit yourself.
“Even though its all temporary, I want to remember it all as permanent but ever changing.”
I always thought myself to be a better writer than a talker. I can think of many reasons why that is but right now it doesn’t matter. The idea to send these group messages came from all the group texting I have to do at my job for quick communication. It came at a time when I started believing what I was studying about the world, life, and our souls. All of that added up and it is now me thinking about you and about what you think about reading my messages and if they do anything for you at all. Thank you for not texting me to stop.
“Change is inevitable, Growth is optional” John C. Maxwell
I want the most out of life.
“If everybody loves you, something is wrong.”
- Paulo Coelho
Even the purest people that ever lived had what we now call “haters”. That word means many things but in full it symbolizes the opposite of love. Don’t ever let negative minds cloud yours. It’s almost inevitable at times but what truly keeps me going- no matter the volume or capacity of the such is- Success. The best revenge. Keep your mind on what matters most. Focus!
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
We get caught up in the mind bending situations of everyday. But in reality no 2 days are alike. We might have a routine but that’s it- we have a routine! Don’t let the routine become you. I embrace the differences and welcome the challenges. Failures are only stepping stones for success. We have a choice, an option. Make IT- don’t let it make YOU.
“That’s precisely the question everyone should be asking–why the hell not? – Why not you, why not now…”
- Timothy Ferriss
I stopped making excuses a long time ago. There’s are those who focus on the problem and then there those who focus on the solution. Which one are you? The only person stopping you is YOU. The only person who can help you is YOU. The rest is extra. I just got my car towed and I’m smiling. Shit happens. Time to win!
“Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit.”
Don’t ever think your circumstances are unchangeable. The ones who actually travel the distance necessary for success are the ones who don’t see obstacles but opportunities. How bad do you want to win? I’m trying to do whatever possible to make the impossible possible… Cherish the chase as much as the trophy.
Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
Stands for more than just words. Growing and expanding is a daily exercise. Sometimes we get carried away with social situations that will mean nothing in a day or two. Ideas are bulletproof with the right passion. Never stray away from your plan.
“Brains aren’t designed to get results; they go in directions. If you know how the brain works you can set your OWN directions. If you don’t, then someone else will.”
- Richard Bandler
Ever been 2 places at once? The mind is that powerful. Just that thought alone helps me happily do things I don’t want to do but I know I have to. The world depends on how you see it. See it as a chore and you will suffer, see it as a journey and you will prosper. Have a good day everyone!
“Be thine own palace, or the world is thy jail.”
– John Donne
How bad do you want to win? How bad do you want to succeed? How bad do you want to change your circumstances? How good do you want to change your life? That’s all I think about, and that’s all I talk about. Surround yourself with greatness and watch the world transform.
Sincere appreciation for the good and the bad with a slight change of mind state produces miracles. Never cease to dream and love. With hard work and dedication to positive auras, the world can change. Despite of what my goals are I wish you all a joyous New Year. Let 2013 be the stepping stone for a bright future and let yesterday be but a full tank of gas that we will fill again tomorrow. Stay safe, keep your head up high, plan ahead, and spread love. Enjoy!- PS thank you for reading! It means the Universe to me.
My new year starts on my Birthday. That’s a tradition I’ve been holding to myself for the last 3 years. Partly because I refuse to go with the masses and second because if you think about it that’s actually YOUR real new year of life. Even though I really don’t celebrate, my goals start on the 5th of November and begin again on that same day. Build our own Pyramids.
Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.
Ever had a great idea and through the course of the day it just disappeared? To me those great ideas come from God. Its like a helping hand that we never asked for that can still make a huge difference. I’m a huge believer in signs so I live my life documenting these ideas in photography and writing. Look you have a smartphone- use it! The calendar and the notepad are the most important apps in my opinion. Fail to plan and you plan to fail. I don’t care what the government does I will succeed.
“You know.. I had to succeed.. Because I finally ran out of things that didn’t work”
You want to quit? Go ahead.. It only means someone else will take that spot. Be ambitious with your every right, everything happens for a reason but only let that reason be what we can’t control. The only reason I do this is to be the person I was meant to be. Everyday. Be safe out there, calculate your risks, and stay positive.
Let love consume today and everyday moving forward. Let material things play a subordinate roll in your happiness and allow yourself the open mind to see the importance of what today is really about. Keep your family above everything, those familiar faces have the power of God embedded in them. Hope you didn’t spend all your savings or exploited your credit cards. :) Merry Christmas to you and yours.
“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere.”
– Walt Whitman
Limits are the enemy of imagination. Never stop dreaming.
