Seriously. Who?

The ‘Real You’ is revealed in this 3:58 video by the late, great and loving Alan Watts.

The Essence Of Creativity – “What box?”

On Friday I had the occasion to visit my local community board where I was asked to sign in on one of those lined sheets with columns and lines for Name, Address, Phone, email Address, Reason for Visiting.

So I did so but, whether I write large or the lines and spaces are too small, I used more than what the designer of this form allotted.

When I handed it back to the woman she wrinkled her nose and mumbled something about “taking up more than one line.”

My reply: “You really were taught well, weren’t you?” and when she looked at me a little bit defensively I countered, “I mean, I’m sure you were told not to color outside the lines, weren’t you? But the essence of creativity is to use whatever you need – space, lines, time – to get done what you set out to get done.”  

Perhaps too big an answer to a rather insignificant issue but her reply was a peek into a way of thinking that has crept into our lives and is crippling us.

We have become SO sensitive, SO worried about offending, SO paralyzed by whatever is considered “correct” this season that nothing is getting done. We’re not working, not earning, not building, not creating.

Worse. We’re sliding backward into an abyss.

You have, I’m sure, heard the plea to think outside the box.

The best reply I’ve heard to this is,

“What box?”

Think You Don’t Create Your Own Reality?

Here’s a video from FTF Films on Victim Mentality.
So if you could reverse that and create a Victor Mentality instead, would you?

It would require taking responsibility for your circumstances right now and resisting the temptation to blame parents, the economy, the government, a spouse, a lover, etc.

You would be creating your Life. Are you up to it?

  • MLM & QALY

    Okay, we all know that MLM = Multi-Level Marketing but how about QALY?

    Thanks to President Obama, and now more recently Chief Justice Roberts, we Americans will have to become very familiar with this new acronym.

    The quality-adjusted life years measurement (the ‘QALY’) is a standardized measurement used in publicly funded healthcare systems, such as in Great Britain, to determine how modern medical care will be doled out. Here’s a quote from the url:  http://www.nice.org.uk/newsroom/features/measuringeffectivenessandcosteffectivenesstheqaly.jsp

     “With the rapid advances in modern medicine, most people accept that no publicly funded healthcare system . . . can possibly pay for every new medical treatment which becomes available. The enormous costs involved mean that choices have to be made.

     “It makes sense to focus on treatments that improve the quality and/or length of someone’s life and, at the same time, are an effective use of . . . resources.

     “To ensure our judgements are fair, we use a standard and internationally recognised method . . .  the quality-adjusted life years measurement (the ‘QALY’).”

     Allow me to translate.

     If you are 80 years old and need a hip replacement a calculation will be made to determine the number of quality years you have left. When it is determined that number is too low, you very likely may be denied the resources, which may go to a 30 year old determined to have more quality years left. That will not make you happy.

     But what if that 30 year old is an illegal immigrant?

     This is the New World that Obama and Roberts have created. Perhaps if Pelosi and the others had read the bill before voting on it, and if it had been called a tax, the vote might have come out differently. But that did not happen and we are now faced with a two-tier system: the wealthy will be able to get any and all healthcare they need and the rest of us will all be in the same boat, scratching for what resources the “experts” have and have calculated we deserve based on how many years of “quality life” we have left. ~ “Sorry you 80 year old, no hip replacement for you. You’ll have to spend the rest of your life in a wheelchair.”

     Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi was funny, Obama’s healthcare Nazis will not be.

     I do not like to present a problem without suggesting a solution. So what to do?

    1.  Stay healthy. Stop eating garbage that some are trying to pass off as food.
    2. Get off the couch and MOVE. Your body is designed to MOVE. Forego the wheelchair and flip the healthcare Nazis the bird.
    3. Take supplements. Even the better food may be nutritionally deficient.
    4. Become as wealthy as you can. Get past any mental barriers about that.
    5. Consider network marketing or MLM. It is as simple as what you have been doing since you were five years old but you haven’t been getting paid for it. It is time you changed that. You can get a copy of the Classic Are You Walking Past a Fortune? at no charge. Just click on the walking, whistling dollar above and on the right.

     Good Health & Wealth to You!

    OMG, How I Love the Internet!

    I mean there I was just a few hours ago unaware of an entire blog and a group of outstanding and outrageous people. By way of an email I discovered Adam Baker and his most impressive and inspiring site:

    ManVsDebt.com where I also found a video of  him speaking at a TED event. His topic? Asking this enormously important and timely question:

    What does Freedom mean to you?

    I can’t recommend it highly enough so here it is. Don’t delay, check this out now:

    MLM: Just Another Part of the Ride

    About 7 years ago when I first heard Personal Development and the idea that our thoughts create reality connected with Network Marketing, I was incredulous. I found it hard to believe that what I thought and believed had anything to do with my business success. 

    Let’s face it, how many car salespeople or brokers concern themselves with such things? I was starting a networking business and needed to do the things necessary to build it. What was all this New Age stuff to do with that? 

    Well, maybe those salespeople and brokers should pay attention, because now I know that seven years ago my education in my innate powers was just beginning. 

    The very last part of the video presentation below ends with these words: 

    “The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, “Is this real or is this just a ride?’ and other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say, ‘Hey, Don’t worry, don’t be afraid ever because . . . this is just a ride.'”

    MLM or network marketing is just an attraction, another ride at the amusement park.

    Don’t be afraid to let out a good scream!

    9 Reasons Why MLM STILL Appeals To Millions

    In a blog article I recently read the author, J.P. Hicks, was consoling those who are experiencing the humiliation of being unemployed and the frustration of looking for a job in the current dismal economic environment.

    He related a story of his cousin who has a $180K college education, is working part-time in a department store and has sent out over a two year span 38,000 resumes, all to no avail.

    Insightfully, he stated that society has “trained us to believe we are worthless without a job” and that “no one ever tells us to stop looking for a job and get busy building something”.

    Not true.

    Over my years in Network Marketing I have heard exactly that advice repeatedly. Hicks lists 10 reasons why ‘JOB’ should be a curse in our collective vocabulary and that we should shun all attempts at seeking one. Out of the ten reasons, nine could precisely describe the motivation for the millions who join the NM industry. Mind you, the author was not endorsing Network Marketing.

    Here are those nine reasons that very accurately define why MLM still appeals to millions and most likely will for a great long time:
    1. Working a job makes others wealthy, but not YOU. Self-explanatory.

    2 Jobs are designed to make you poorer. Because wages do not keep pace with rising costs. In MLM you are paid according to what your efforts produce.

    3. Jobs force you to get up at the same time every day: One of the goals of many Network Marketers is simply to sleep until they are finished and then get up.

    4. Most jobs require you to wear a costume of some kind  Wish I knew how many MLMers brag about going to the “office” in their pajamas!

    5. Bosses wield the all  power. This one hit home for me because I have never met a boss I ever liked!

    6. Jobs tax your income at the highest rate. If you’ve never heard about the tax breaks for owning your own business, talk to your accountant. And if you don’t have one, find one because you’ll need one and will be able to afford one once the ball gets rolling.

    7. Jobs steal your passion from you and deny you of  what you really want to do with your life. Another one of the greatest motivations for a vast majority of MLMers.

    8 You’ll never be in control of your life working for someone else: If someone has the power to end your way of life, then you will never be free. Who can’t get jacked up and enthused about owning their own life?

    9. Most jobs hold back your potential as a human being: Ah, this one explains all that personal development that is so intimately connected to Network Marketing. What other business or industry allows you to get to the heart of the matter for yourself and touch and mentor others to grab hold of their own life course?

    Why Network Marketing?

    There’s an old expression: “I quote others to better express myself.”

    So I am enlisting the help of Randy Gage in making the case for MLM, or Network Marketing. Here’s his latest blog post.

    ~~~~~~~

    Why Network Marketing?

    By Randy Gage  March 31st, 2012

    Some have skepticism about Network Marketing.  Others see it as the last bastion left in the free enterprise system an average person can create wealth.  Just how real is the promise, and why does it work?

    True economic freedom requires that you employ two basic prosperity principles:

    1)   You must employ the concept of leverage, to escape the trading-time-for-money dilemma; and

    2)   You must be able to look in the mirror every morning and know you’re talking to the boss.

    When you put these two factors in play, manifesting prosperity is no longer a wild pipe dream, but something you can really accomplish.

    When you take the entrepreneurial excitement of working for yourself and combine that with leveraging yourself through a network of other excited entrepreneurs—the results are exponentially spectacular. The synergistic process creates a whole that is much more powerful than its individual parts. Done properly, the end result of building your network is a self-perpetuating, residual income machine.

    There are probably as many reasons to work the biz as there are distributors. Usually, though, it comes down to the kind of lifestyle networking can give you. Some of the unique benefits of this business include:

    • Choosing the people you work with;
    • Going into business with a small investment;
    • Starting part-time;
    • Working from home;
    • Low Risk;
    • Picking the hours you work;
    • Discovering unique products not available elsewhere;
    • Getting lucrative tax advantages;
    • Enjoying the opportunity for an unlimited income;
    • Having the chance to build your success while empowering others to succeed.

    This complete benefit package simply is not available in any other business I know of.  It is unique to MLM.   So who can you tell about it today!

    – RG

  • Today’s Honesty – Tomorrow’s Fortune

    The economy stinks. No one seems willing to do what must be done. And you aren’t happy waiting for someone else to answer your problems – as if they ever will.

    Honestly, the time to get hold of the situation is now and with the right information, the right opportunity and the right group of people you can.

    There is a way. There ALWAYS is. But you already know that. It takes belief in yourself and in your ability to find the help and those people you can trust yourself to find.

    It also takes a complete system from A to Z. And that’s available too. In this free report.

    Trust yourself. Take Action.
