Think Thanks!

thanksgiving-1

Saying “Thank You” is two of the first words we teach our children to say when they receive something…we make sure they express a visible delight so I think its safe to say that the concept of gratitude is within us. Yet many adults forget, ignore the practice,
or take it for granted not only with people but also with ourselves… Think for a moment how different it will be when living in gratitude is the norm…
On this Thanksgiving day I am grateful for the diversity in all things – human… You!

Dr John Demartini said “What we think about and thank about, we bring about.”  May your day be filled with inspired love, peace, fun and laughter!

The Magic Bank Account

The Magic Bank Account

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest…
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use…

However, this prize has Rules:

The set of Rules:
1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

3. You may only spend it.

4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another
$86,400 for that day.

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time, it can say, “Game Over!” It can close the account, and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted. Right!

Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for.

Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself – Right!

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, THIS GAME IS REAL!

Are you shocked??? Yes!!!

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can’t seem to see it.

The PRIZE is “TIME”

1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of Life.

2. And when we go to sleep at Night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.

3. What we haven’t used up that Day is forever lost.

4. Yesterday is forever gone.

5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank (God) can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING… YOU DIE……

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars…

Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think. So take care of yourself, be Happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.

Start spending….Each Day is Amazing!

Note: I received from a friend and sharing because every second counts!
I often use the 86,400 seconds phrase when people use time as an example or excuse.
for taking action. I’ve noticed that an immediate pause occurs and rethinking follows…

What It Takes To Work On The Internet

laptop-lifestyle7

Are you curious about what it takes to work on the internet?
Well, here’s what I know…
*Mindset, skills and tools are “mandatory” for endeavors of health
and wealth online & offline.
*Systems, relationships and mentors -are the “smart moves” of everybody regardless of the product or service that’s offered.
That’s it!
Note: everything you just read makes the web and the world go round…It’s just that simple!
Eventually the “mandatory” (tasks) and the “smart moves” you take, merge… The six actions become three…
1.tools/skills/system + 2.relationships/mentors + 3.mindset
forming your map complete with GPS.
It’s exciting and comes down to deciding committing and taking action.The three things you do everyday anyway.
The difference is you’re the boss…your office is open 24/7-365 and you work when and where you choose!
Whether you’re selling or sharing somebody needs what you offering.  How cool is that?!

Think about it…See the internet in your work future and take the next step!
After three years of going for it alone I’ve found a system that does 90% of the work and allows me to earn as I learn…A smart move for me!

Here’s what I know:
1.A laptop and internet connection give you the freedom to work anywhere…
2.A determined mindset keeps you marching with unwavering faith.
3.Skills emerge in the “Project Make It Happen experience” and success and freedom appear…you’re happier and you’ve done what you were born to do!
Stop by the Live online workshop for a sneak peak, you’ll be making a smart move.

2016: Change but NO Change… REALLY

taylor2016

 

As a black teenager in America I honestly feel as though I have it the worst when it comes to police officers and other authorities. My peers and I get judged and stereotyped based off of something as simple as our hair or the type of music we listen to. Something simple as walking down the street when its dark outside can cost us our lives.

When we know our rights and tell authorities our rights…What they’re doing is unjust; they become angry and upset that we called them out and next thing is we’re being thrown to the ground, getting beat on because we know our rights and we’re speaking on it.

I shouldn’t fear for my life or my love one’s life whenever they interact with people who are supposed to protect and serve. I don’t understand how white men rape women and admit to raping them but receive zero prison time or a couple of months of probation, while black men get years and years over marijuana when marijuana is legal in certain states.

I don’t understand how police officers can receive zero prison time for murdering a black child for holding a fake gun in an “open carry” state where you can walk down the street with a real fully loaded gun and its 100% legal, but a black man can receive 15 years for violating probation or parole.

Not saying that all police officers are bad because there are some good ones out there but when they speak up on the issue or try to stop it they lose their job or get suspended. So that tells me that the injustice work of police officers is acceptable.

My peers and I are still fighting for the same cause and having the same movement as our grandparents and parents. The only difference from now and back then is that we have cameras and social media. That’s the only difference between 2016 and 1966. Back then it was water hoses and dogs with no cameras nobody believed you, but now they’re just shooting us and saying they were scared for their lives or he was reaching. Even with cameras and the officers are totally wrong if the cases goes to trial and court our black and brown lives are not valued.

White America blames us for being aggressive and violent but all the violence and aggression comes from frustration being oppressed by white America for 400+ years, First it was slavery… then segregation… now mass incarceration.

I don’t want my children and grand-children marching and protesting for the same thing I am fighting for because that means nothing has changed and history just keeps repeating itself. With all that being said… things need to change in this country, starting with us! 

Note:  A 17 year old  high school senior answers the question: What do you care about?

stay tuned for her thoughts on how we can make changes happen!

Thank You for sharing Taylor

Now What?

Untitled design (16)

Congratulations!  Remembering that day (Graduation) makes me smile… It was full of excitement!  The air was easy to breathe and the genie was fulfilling my every wish.  I laughed, dance and celebrated with family and friends and opened all the gifts…amazed at how thoughtful people were with their gift selection  (especially the ones in the envelope).

Feeling grateful and motivated was the order of the day, in fact that feeling lasted a few days…weeks even. Then reality set in …expectations were different; and I felt it.

Now what?

Move out of my parents home, buy a car and live the singles life (urban style)! I wanted it to happen, quick…Realizing the obvious, I knew the entry-level job that I was in wasn’t going to meet the bill. The work-study job was over and the designer things I purchased with my gift cards began to feel like a dumb thing to do. I immediately did the math…basic expenses plus recreation left me in deficit mode… additional income is what I wanted, needed – Now!

The fact that I graduated really meant my support system had changed drastically. I had decisions to make and soon…After-all, I dreamed about this time for many years and I wasn’t about to give up my “urban lifestyle” dream…So the search was on!

Find a better job, work overtime were the first options I thought of and exactly what I did; however having my own business was always my dream and finally years later, I’m a business owner.  I share this story to encourage you to follow your dream Now! It’s your time, embrace it! Do You!
