Just Thinking Out Loud

Randomly, My Thoughts Wander Off To Somewhere I Have Never Been.


You might think I am crazy… or not! I am sure we have all been there at one time or another. Just sitting in the car at a red light and all of a sudden the car behind you lays on the horn, announcing their agitation with your tardy departure from the intersection. In a flash, you are ripped away from that moment of day-dreaming – a camping trip or a vacation in a sunny resort south of the border that you have been planning for what seems like years now.

I have often asked myself what I would have done if the internet were around when I was in my late teens or early twenties.  Would I have been an internet guru? A crazed on-line shopper or missed it all because my life choices would not have been any different than they were. Valid questions.  However, there is only one thing wrong with that scenario, we can not go back and have a ‘re-do’ on anything we have ever done. Once a choice is made and followed up on, it is done! A moment lived is a moment gone. Even as I write these words on the page, this moment is gone… oops and this moment is gone too.  That quickly, our lives pass us by.

In those moments of preponderance,  I would think about things like how much money the person who created the toothpick made – or that little toothpick umbrella used in fancy drinks? I would wonder if I had a toothpick in my future. Then I would huff and shrug it off.  I often times thought life is about being at the right place at the right time. I have many times, considered how much my sense of timing has ultimately sucked.  Well, until I woke up and realized that moment, that singular moment of being in the right place at the right time can be created by me, by my choices, by the direction I choose to take. Saying yes instead of no. Taking a chance instead of walking away. How many times have we looked back and thought about those things we should have done but were afraid to take the risk or decided we didn’t have an extra $50.  How many times have we made a decision we have come to regret simply because we did not have enough self-confidence?

New Beginnings – New Choices


Well, I am here to say that we create our own destiny! Every choice we make has a consequence. We eat bad food-we get fat or sick. We walk a mile a day-we get healthy and strong. We drink alcohol everyday- we become alcoholics. We see the down side of everything-we become cynical. We smile and see the good around us and we become inspiring.  Our choices-our lives. So, doesn’t it make sense to make good choices? See the light in our lives. And all we have to do is turn on the switch.

Retrain The Way We Think


First, we have to retrain our thinking.  That sounds like a daunting task.  How do we do that? Well, it is actually a fairly easy venture.  When you get down to brass tacks… everything we do, we do because we have created a habit. We smoke cigarettes when we talk on the phone, drink a cup of coffee, etc. We do things a certain way out of habit. So, retraining the way we think is simply creating a new habit and breaking the old one. How do you create a habit… by doing something ‘habitually’. Simply by repeating the behavior until we do it without having to think about it.  It is truly that simple.

 Why Is It So Hard To Break A Habit?


Our need to have pleasure outweighs most other things in our lives. We can all say that is simply not true. However, if we are going to be honest with ourselves, we know it is true. How many times have we said ‘just one more’? One more minute, one more taste, one more game, one more whatever.  It is that desire for pleasure that stops us from creating that good habit. It is difficult to change those habits that have been created from pleasure.

The good thing is that not all habits have to be changed – Just the ones that stand in the way of us achieving our dreams. The ones that keep us from performing the tasks needed to create success. I’ll bet that is a relief. You were thinking you had to re-create your whole life, right? Well, in a way, that is exactly what will happen. The great news is that in creating those new, more directed habits, creating a whole new life is going to be the result.

Is It Worth It?


I have found the best motivator has always been the reward. What do I get for my hard work? What if I told you that you could work hard for a year and retire, would you be interested? Okay, not so realistic. What if I told you that you could work real hard for a year and then live the life you have always desired and work when you wanted to? Sound a bit more real? Well, it is certainly obtainable. If you are the kind of person that would rather work diligently for a while, and then reap the rewards of your hard work without having to spend the rest of your life working hard, then I have a proposition for you.

What if you could access all the tools you need to become an internet guru? Start a blog? Open a market place on line? Become a ‘YouTuber?’ Become an internet marketer in whatever niche you desire and have all the training and support you would ever need to succeed in a way that is only imagined right now.

Let Me Tell You About A Program


I am talking about a program, a training program, full of incredible tools, videos, training videos, and a community of like-minded and supportive folks that want you to succeed as much as we want to succeed and are accomplishing our goals and our aspirations and dreams.

I have spent most of my life around people that work hard, day in and day out. I watch as they struggle from paycheck to paycheck. No matter how hard they work at their job, their days are filled with the same tasks and the same rewards. (assuming their are rewards).  Year after year, decade after decade hard working people save for their retirement so they can enjoy the ‘golden years’ only to find out that the golden years are not so golden. It is a sad deal. Unfortunately, it is how most stories end.

No matter where you are on the spectrum of internet knowledge, you have the ability to change those not-so-golden years into awesome years.  If you can learn, follow instructions, and stick to it, you can create the kind of life you really want to be living.

You do not have to take my word for it. Read about it. Look it over. It doesn’t cost a single penny to give it a trial run.  In fact, it doesn’t cost a single penny to join and achieve your goals. What it does take is desire to be in a better place, to have more money, to have more free time, to spend more time with your family and friends. And yes, to take the day off if you want to without having to worry if you will have a ‘job’ (just over broke) to go back to.

Take The leap

There was a man, drowning in a river. He was praying to God for help. A man pulled up in a small boat and offered to help him. The man said no.  I am waiting for God to save me. Shortly after, another man came upon him in a canoe.  This man also offered to help the drowning man.  Again, the drowning man refused and claimed God would save him. After a short time, another watercraft pulled up to the drowning man and offered to rescue him.  Stubbornly, the man turned his rescuer away stating that God would save him.  The man drown.  As he was standing at the pearly gates, he asked God “God, I prayed, and I prayed that you would save me.  Why did you leave me to die?” God replied, “Dude, I sent three people to pull you out of that water.”

Sometime, the answer is not what we imagine it to be. Sometime the road less traveled is the best route. Sometime we have to step aside from what we know in order to learn. Sometime we have to think outside the box to achieve our goals. Sometime something amazing and real comes along and shows us how to do all those things.

So, I say, find your niche, Follow your niche, Be your niche. I am finding it would have been a much more productive choice to have started with Wealthy Affiliate instead of all that college. HMMM.
