Waking up on the Right side of the bed!

Posted in Mindset on August 13, 2009 by Optimistic

“Eating a healthy breakfast is the best way to a great day.”  How many times have you heard this before? And don’t get me wrong, I agree that a balanced breakfast is very important, but I think it starts before that.

Have you ever had one of those days when nothing is going your way? When the guy is on his cell phone and makes you miss the green light. When your local coffee shop just so happens to be out of Caramel. The time you ran out of gas on the way to a job interview. One of those days when from the time you got out of bed, things just went wrong.

Why does this happen? I’m going to tell you why, and you may not believe me. Well that’s just fine because what I’m going to tell you has been proved. So hold on to your reality cap cause I’m about to blow you away. Science has proved that all matter in this Universe is created of Sub-Atomic Particles called Quanta. Any first year physics student knows this. These Sub-Atomic Particles are actually bundles of energy that are able to make intelligent decisions based on input from other sources of energy, You! When you wake up and feel resignation, doubt, fear, guilt, worry about the bills, and other negative thought waves, you cause these sub-atomic particles to be negative with you.

Now, I’m not a physicist, nor am I claiming to be a professional on this matter. One thing I can promise you is this is for real! I have studied many hours of literature, audio, and so on about positive thinking, deliberate creation, creating wealth and so on. Each of the publications have had one thing in common. The variable is YOU!

Try this. Go out to your local river bank, park, beach, thrift store, antique shop or wherever you feel will serve the purpose, and find yourself a small object that makes you smile. I use a shell I found on the beach while walking with my girlfriend. Now, set this object right next to your alarm clock. As soon as you see this object, touch it, remember its there, think about it, or any other relation with it, I want you to think of something that makes you very happy. This could be a person, an event your grateful for, a time period of life or one certain day. Whatever it is, think about it for 20 seconds, then continue with your day. Carry the object with you if you’d like, or set it on your dash board, desk at work, whatever it takes. What you will soon realize is just by having something to remind you to vibrate positive energy, great things will start to happen to you and around you. Traffic lights will be green, the guy on his cell phone pulls of the road, the coffee shop has a sale on your favorite treat.  The Universe wants to be just like you!

For the next few days, as soon as you wake up in the morning, develop a habbit. I want you to think of something your greatful for and think about it until your finished stretching, walking to start the coffee pot, brushing your teeth, think about it until your glowing. Then, any time during the day you realize your vibrating negative energy, I want you to remember that object in your pocket, remember that thing your so greatful for, look forward to all the amazing things you have coming to you, and be happy now.

So the next time things aren’t going your way, ask yourself this, “which side of the bed did I wake up on?” If this article gives you just one day better than you would have had, I have done my part. Talk to you soon, make it a great day!


Taking the first step.

Posted in Mindset on August 8, 2009 by Optimistic

I want to talk to you a little about taking the first step. The first move in a game of chess, the first lap of the Daytona 500, the first time you tried sushi, the first time you drove a car…

Getting up the courage to venture out into business is not always easy. I know how it feels to “think” you have job security. Time and time again, I remember saying, “Well, its not what I really want to do, but I get a check every week and I’m getting by just fine.” I can only promise you that building your own income feels a thousand times more secure!

Today, we are so afraid to do what no one else does. We are told from the time we’re 12 years old to go to school, get an education, find a great job and stay with it. Why? So we can be $50-$80k in debt, still have trouble finding a good job, then if we do make it up the corporate ladder only to get replaced by someone that demands a lesser salary. Ask yourself this. Do you know anyone that has comfortably retired before the age of 129, that did not work for themselves? Probably not!

So what can you do to break out of that comfort zone? Well, here is some advise for start. If you work a regular 8 to 5 and just can’t seem to take the “risk”, think of it this way. If you start something part time, what’s the risk? The fact that you truly don’t have to quit your job or change the way you live to give it a shot, means the risk is not really a risk at all. The real “risk” here is that you’ll do well and then you’ll have to actually quit your day job and go full time. Hmmm how nice would that be. Wake up one day and be getting paid more from doing nothing than you would if you punch in to your job for the day.

If you research the most successful people on the planet, you’ll soon realize the one thing they have in common is they all failed. Some several times, but they all kept trying. No one will ever be free until they work for themselves and learn to “Leverage.”

So whether there is a hobby of yours that is just burning inside you to start something, or you would like to get involved in network marketing, just remember this. Enjoying life and having time to be with family and friends is worth more than any dollar amount. You don’t have to make millions of dollars a month to feel success. Do your research, find your niche market, start part time- but whatever you do, Take that First Step.
