A Simple Change In Perception Goes A Long Way

Like many I have my good days and I have my bad days.  One day I woke up out of bed and looked in the mirror and decided where I was wasn’t a good place.  Right then and there I decided there had to be more to life than just what I had experienced.

It was at that point that I decided to make the best out of life inspite of the fact that till that moment I only experienced grief, anger, aggrivation blah, blah..

It felt like the world was against me and nothing I did worked. Perhaps the fact that I was only 20 years old at the time had a little something to do with that.  I can remember as clear as day the moment I told myself I am done with the pity party.

Something had to change and the only way for it to happen was if I got off my ass and made it happen.  Ironically it wasn’t like I had a ah ha! moment or anything like that. I just got sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Prior to this underwhelming experience I accepted everything that was dished at me. I felt inferior to others and I had about zero self – esteem.  Flash Forward to 16 years later. Today I see the world much differently I have a wonderful family. I am a badass martial artist , I play a mean guitar and I am an accomplished online marketer.

Not bad for someone who didn’t think he would make anything out of himself.

While my story isn’t particularly exciting and entirely ordinary it leads me to believe that the only thing that really changed in all of that was how I perceived myself.

The best way to change your perception is to see yourself as what you want to be, not as who you are. In fact as soon as you decide that you want to change your perception put away the old you and only focus on the new you.

Our minds are powerful, it will only respond to what you tell it to respond to. It doesn’t matter what it is, simply tell yourself that you are no longer the old you.

The only other ingredient that is needed is: Have faith and believe in yourself.

How Bad Do You Want It?

We all want something? The question is how bad do you want that something? I remember being in high school knowing

High School Drop-Out at Work

that what I was wanting out of life school wasn’t preparing me for.  It was about 9th grade when I realized that what school was offering me I wasn’t interested in.

So I dropped out of school! I did what probably all other drop outs did I partied and worked. Fast forward real fast! I have 2 regrets when it comes to dropping out of high school.

  • 1. I wish I paid more attention in English class.
  • 2. I wish I paid more attention in math class.

So all you kiddies out there reading this. I dropped out of high school, went back and got my G.E.D and even went to college.  So stay in school, dropping out is stupid.. Just do your time or you will have to make up for it later one way or another.. With that said…

Moving Right Along!

I think that most people look for jobs because they are told to look for jobs. After all its what you do right? Go to school get a education and go get a job that pays the bills.  As a high school drop out I was forced to think about what I should do with my life.

I didn’t have parents who put money away for college for me. Come to think of it, I literally was left on my own to figure out what the hell I should do.

Finally I figured out that what I don’t want to do is be a slave to money. What I don’t want to do is wonder how I am going to pay my electric bill.  Really and perhaps selfishly what I want to do is what ever I feel like doing.

Now before you start thinking that I am lazy and selfish I am far from it. I work long hours , but I love what I do.  I love doing whatever I want to do when I want to do. I think I have a touch ADD 🙂

But it was by wanting to learn new stuff that I learned the secret to success.

That’s Right! –> I learned the secret to success and how to be successful at everything you do. By successful I mean being good at it.

  • I wanted to learn how to play guitar – So I put in the hundreds of hours that was demanded to get good at playing guitar.
  • I wanted to learn Kung Fu – Again I put in the hundreds of hours that it demands
  • I wanted to get good at marketing on the internet – “” ____””  I think you get the point 🙂

You need 2 things to be successful in anything you want to be successful in.

  • You need a plan
  • And you need to want it bad, I mean real real bad

If you can meet those two requirements the only ingredient is putting in the long hours.. (A Must)

Because a lot of the  stuff I do online is related to internet network marketing I wanted to share this with you. In the 10+ years I have been marketing online I have been in search of a vehicle that will allow me to do whatever I want to do when I want to do it.

I finally found a program that can jump start online success. If you want freedom in your life and money is what is standing in your way. Give this a look —–>Click Here To Kick Start Your Success

Halloween A Frightful Night OF Horror And Candy!

Is Halloween suppose to be a nice holiday?

I have noticed on the television that every channel is blasting scary movies. We have our children dress up in costumes. What exactly are “we” celebrating? I am not talking about why people celebrated it in the past. I wanna know why people celebrate it today?

Why exactly do we allow our children run around door to door asking for treats. It sounds like harmless fun. But lets really look at the face of halloween.

As you can see from these videos, honestly halloween is about killing, murdering, lust,destruction,chaos. Now I like me a good horror movie but it seems a bit much to actually glorify it.

We see it as harmless but I remember when I was pre-teen trying to contact spirits , demons or whatever on halloween. Of course it was scary, what if a vampire came after us or something.

My point is some peoples minds are very easily influenced is this holiday really a good day worth celebrating?

More on Halloween around the web!

Disney world Vacations – Finally Taking The Plunge

We just got done doing a vacation down at Disney World last year. It was fun we stayed in our time share and it was about 5min drive from Disney itself. We drove down and stayed in North Carolina where I visited a internet marketing friend.

Anyhow this is the first time we are flying our daughters to Disney and doing the whole disney vacation package thingy…  Its not about me its about my kids.  I am getting ready to tell my girls we are going to Disney tomorrow.  I think they are going to be surprised!

Disney World Vacations – I think everyone has been there

Mostly everyone I know has been to disney at one point or another.  After visiting the place you really begin to believe it is a small world after all 🙂

One thing I love about Disney is they have the best employee’s. It is dam hot in Florida and there are families all over the place,  I have yet met a an employee that was rude or annoyed even. Everyone seems to have a smile plastered to their faces..

Talk to you all next week!

Consistency Is The Key To Everything

Do You Have Consistency In Your Life?

Consistency Is A Virtue; If You're Not A Screwup

How often have you set out to do something only to find that you simple up and quitting before finishing what ever it is you set out to do? This is something I see many people do. Throughout the years I have seen many people start training in martial arts, they last maybe 3 years some 5 years but slowly over time they just loose interest. I see the same thing in the internet home business sector. People start out with good intentions but eventually they just give up.

I am very good martial artist as well as a great guitar player and I am not a bad online marketer if I do say so myself. The one thing that seperates me from other people is I am consistent in what I do. In fact in my Sifu’s school there is only 1 other person besides me who has consistently trained throughout the years. I am talking about a lot of people coming through my teachers doors, all starting with great intentions all just deciding to give up without ever really reaching their full potential.

The next step

I also see this happen with my own students, a person walks into my school ready to take on the world. A year or two into their training they simply give up.

Funny thing is this, I am nobody particularly special I just simply refuse to give up on something I really want.  Martial Arts really isn’t that hard, nor is playing guitar pretty much anything is possible if you put enough effort into it.

So the next time you are thinking about doing something, really take a moment and think about if it’s something you really want. If it is then the secret to success my friend is consistency be willing to do what others aren’t.  If you are sincere in your effort eventually you will accomplish what you started. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day.
