40 Ways For A Schizophrenic To Get And Hold A Job

Hello internet world.  This is Jesse Creel and I’m writing to you today to let you know I care.  I want to help.  So if your a schizophrenic who wants to work, I figured these tips might help you on your way.  Drink deeply of them, and soak it up.  I’ve been working for 2 years now at the same job and I’ve been a schizophrenic the entire time.  I had a really hard time at first when things first went haywire.  Now I’m back to working, and I’m happy to be paying taxes and contributing to society.  The same can be with you.  If your a schizophrenic and want to work, then this is for you.  I hope you gain some insight from this post, and can put one or two things to work in your life and that you benefit from reading this post.  Here’s to your success even though you hear voices!

  1. Love Your Job- Even if you hate working, love your work.  It will take discipline to do this, but it will be well worth it, and you may even get promoted for doing such a good job.  Not only should you love the hands on work you do, you should also love your customers.  Put love into your work with the product, and love your customers for paying your check to you.  Love your job, even if it’s a conscious choice.
  2. Do Something You Can Love-  Yes again, it’s all about the love.  If you can’t stand working a cash register then get a job where you get to work more with your hands.  I’ve found, as a schizophrenic, it really helps to have hands on work.  The voices can’t chase away your work ethic, so if you can be a hard worker everyday, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get and hold a job.  That would be a good thing for all things that are right in the world.  At least until you win that lottery drawing.
  3. Find Reasons To Work-  Maybe you’ve applied for disability and it’s taking too long.  Maybe you have a family and need the money to support them.  Maybe you just need to pay your bills so you don’t have to rely on your family to support you, and you can be free of being a burden to them… at least partly depending on how much money you make.  Find many, many, many, many reasons to work.  Money can definitely be a motivator so use that motivation to get you out of bed in the morning and get into work.  Use that motivation to swallow your pride and take a job that you think maybe is beneath you.  You may find that it’s the perfect fit and they want to give you everything you want in a job.
  4. Work With A Family Member-  For me, working with my younger brother really helped me.  He got me my current job, the one I’ve had for the past 2 years.  He has since moved on, but I count the times I worked with him as precious, even though he was an incredible pain to me.  For me, working with my younger brother required that I swallow my pride and take HIS advice.  That was very difficult for me, but it landed me the second best job I’ve ever had.  Where I CAN do the job, and my bosses like me.  If you can get a job with a brother, sister, parent, cousin, anyone, you may find the opportunity your looking for.  Take their advice, snap out of your delusions about money just coming to you, and take action and work!  You can have all the dreams you want as long as your working and contributing something.  That’s the way I look at it and I’m a schizophrenic who makes a living working a job!
  5. Love Your Bosses-  Again, and I can’t say it enough, you gotta put love into it.  Everything will turn out better.  So love your bosses too.  That may or may not be difficult, but it will result in a better relationship with your company.  If you love your bosses, you will do everything you need to do, in your power, to make their lives easier.  And if their life is easier because of what you do, then you’re going to have a good time about it.  They most likely will be kind to you, and treat you with respect for your wishes.  They will make you work, but your getting paid anyways, so you might as well do the job the best you can do it.  So love your bosses, do your work with love, and collect your paycheck.  If you keep it up, chances are those paychecks are going to be getting bigger.
  6. Don’t Complain-  Once you’ve gotten your job, you’re going to have to work.  So there’s no sense in complaining about it.  You have to work, and there’s going to be pains you experience as a result, but why fuss?   Your getting paid, and your contributing, so you might as well suck it up and do what they ask you to do, without reservation.  If you don’t complain when your bosses ask you to do things that the average employee would complain about you’ll get brownie points, and that could lead to a raise.  So don’t complain, and reap the rewards!
  7. Sleep Enough-  Work and the voices will wear you down.  Make sure you get plenty of rest.  You work hard, and you have a hand in life that you MUST play.  Make the most of it.  Don’t get me wrong, you shouldn’t sleep so much you don’t get anything done in your personal life, but make sure you’re sleeping enough so that your not miserable at your job.  Part of my success I attribute to getting enough sleep at night.  So sleep enough, and get your rest, you deserve it as a schizophrenic who works.
  8. Make Work A Priority-  Yes, work should be a priority.  Again, you have to come up with reasons to work if you want to do it.  For me it’s my family, and it’s living a better life than just sitting on the couch and being a house cat.  You are going to be of more value if your working while you work on these crazy dreams of yours that are going to make you rich someday.  So find the motivation to work, and make working a priority, above all other things you have to do that day.  Unless of course your family needs you.  Family first, that’s what I say… but for me my children are taken care of during the day, everyday, so I have nothing better to do than work.  Make work a priority, and reap the rewards!
  9. Please Your Boss’s Voice That’s In Your Head-  As a schizophrenic, hearing voices, you may hear your boss’s voice in your head.  For me, it’s been a blessing, because she tells me things that are going to benefit me, for instance that I should “work!”.  To be honest I have heard once or twice that my boss is sick and tired of me, but that doesn’t bother me, because I am not sick or tired of her.  I just want to make her life easier, we all have to live with each other, and sometimes we want somebody to leave when they’re doing things we don’t like.  Sometimes I smoke too many cigarettes and the people I work with seem to know how I feel, and it’s not good and they don’t like it.  What I recommend you do, is talk to your voices, give them your point of view, and do it with love.  Try to make your head a better place to live in for the voices, especially for your bosses voice.  If you ever get enough money to quit, then you’ll have other voices that you’ll have to live with.  At any rate, as a successful schizophrenic, I believe we have to be civil with our voices, so that means no fighting.  Just go with it, make the best of it, put your filters in place (meaning don’t let the voices make you think what they say is reality), and do the best you can.  Take care of your boss, and your boss’s voice, and be happy you have a job!
  10. Shower Everyday-  Hygiene is important.  You want to be a clean schizophrenic.  It helps you be more normal.  You CAN take a shower everyday, there is nothing stopping you from doing that.  And you’ll be a better, cleaner person because of it.  You don’t want to go without showering.  Don’t let yourself go.  Take control, and promote cleanliness.
  11. Pray For Jobs You Can Do-  When I first started I prayed, and thanked God that I had a job I COULD do.  I was very happy that I could do SOME things around the store that would contribute to it’s running smoothly and growing.  I would not count out the power of prayer to help you in your life.  So ask God to help you, and you never know, he just might!
  12. Do Your Job With Confidence-  If something needs to get done, be the man or woman who CAN do it!  You don’t need to know any more to get the job done, you just need to have the confidence that you can serve and do the job well.  You’ll figure out the rest as you go along.  And each day you will get better.  The more time you have in, the better, more seasoned you will be.  And that will lead to even more confidence in your ability to do the job.  Do the job with confidence, and be a better leader.
  13. Treat Each Day Like It’s Going To Be A Good Experience-  My boss said to someone else, I overheard the conversation, that all the hours and the people over the holidays would be a good experience for them.  I heard that and took it to heart.  All the hours during the holidays were going to be good for me, and each day I work, even when it’s not the holiday, are going to be good experiences for me.  I recommend you look at it the same way.  Each day is going to be a good experience for you.  Even if you hear voices, it’s not all bad, and you can still do your job, so it IS a good experience, your getting paid!
  14. Ask Yourself The Question, How Do I Improve?-  This is the basis for what I believe has led me to several promotions.  I am always asking myself “How do I improve?”.  And I get answers from my voices.  A lot of the time it’s helpful and I just do my job better.  Think of what you could do for your own life if you were constantly asking yourself how you could improve.  Give it a try for a week and see what happens.  Keep it up and you may be surprised at the positive experience you have.
  15. Swallow Your Pride And Take Advice-  This one has already been touched on but it’s important and bears repeating.  If your hard headed like me, you won’t want to work for your money, and you’ll try to do things that would land you on easy street for no work at all.  I’ve been there, and it took a serious attitude adjustment to do what I do now.  And that attitude adjustment wouldn’t have come without me sucking it up and taking advice from my younger brother.  He told me to work, not to hate it, to act like I liked my life, and to stop playing the lottery.  I’ve done it all, except for the lottery, I still play that.  But I’m working and that’s a big step up for me.  As it could be for you as well.  Keep trying, and take advice, even if it means you may not be the miracle making lottery winner just yet.  You can do it!  You can work!
  16. Exercise Plenty-  For me, this means walking 2 to 3 miles a day.  I also do yoga, and crunches, and some pushups, and I stretch.  Exercise will do you good.  It’s one of those physical things that the voices can’t control.  You CAN exercise and become stronger.  You can do it even if you hear voices.  It will help you work your job, and you’ll be healthier.  So exercise!  It’s good for you.
  17. Drink A Lot Of Water And Eat Healthy-  This is common sense, but it’s still important.  You want to be mindful of what your putting into your body.  It could make you or break you.  Water is the giver of life, and we are made up of mostly fluid as human beings, so we had better be refreshing ourselves each day.  Eat well along with drinking plenty of water and you’ll feel good and be better prepared to deal with the voices and the work you have to do to contribute to your family and to society.
  18. Take Your Medication Everyday-  This is so important it can’t be overstated.  You have to stay on your medication if you want to be stable.  Don’t play with doses, don’t skip days.  Take it religiously, everyday, and do your self a favor and control your hallucinations.  Take your medication everyday, that is all.
  19. See A Therapist On A Regular Basis-  For me, therapy has helped me work.  My therapist helps me to discern reality just a bit more clearly, and he gives me insight as to how a smart human being would look at my life.  I’m not doing that bad.  I just have to keep working.  And seeing my therapist once a month helps me to stay on track and making my life better each day.  I highly recommend talk therapy for schizophrenics as mandatory, to help you out with the false beliefs that can be caused by the voices.
  20. Give Money To Family And Charity, And Pay Your Bills-  You can do this now that your working!  Help yourself out by helping your family out, and don’t forget about the poor people out there once you’ve made a steady income.  They need you.  Pay your bills, or do the best you can do, and get out of debt.  Do everything you can do each day to get your butt into work so that you can do these things, and make a difference in the lives of those you love most, and in the lives of perfect strangers.  What goes around comes around.  So be good, and do good.  You’ll be happy you did.
  21. Pay Taxes-  It’s better than being on disability.  You not relying on the government to do your work for you.  It’s better for society IF you can work.  Not discouraging anyone from being on disability.  If you need that then there’s a reason it’s there.  But IF you CAN work, I say it’s better that you do.  That’s just this schizophrenic.  You can support all the things that your taxes pay for, like schools, firefighters, and police.  Not to mention the military.  If you are working your helping to support our hero’s, and that’s a good thing if you ask me.  I’m a working schizophrenic, and my view matters.  Work, and pay taxes.  You’ll be happy you did.  God help us all.
  22. Have Something You Can Work On In Your Free Time-  Yes, you want to work, and you want to contribute, but as Jim Rohn put it “Work harder on yourself than you do at your job” so you want to put some work in, in your free time.  There are endless ways you could do this, for me it’s blogging and writing e books.  For me, that’s the best way I can do it in my free time.  Besides, I really love doing it.  So pick something you can love, maybe it’s reading, and do that thing when your not working or taking care of your family.  Work it, and work it good.  Even better than you do at your job.  Because you CAN get and hold a job, and work it there.  Then you can come home and work it even harder on yourself!  Do something with your free time because your not wholly someone else’s slave.  You are a person with a passion, and you can unleash that passion onto the world.  See what happens, learn as you go along, course correct… work on something in your free time.
  23. Do What Your Told To Do-  Without complaining.  Said it before, say it again.  Make your boss’s job easier.  Just do what your told to do.
  24. Be Open To New Opportunity-  This is geared towards those folks who don’t yet have a job, or are not where they want to be.  Give yourself the opportunity to go somewhere, maybe with a family member, and submit to an hourly position.  You’re a schizophrenic and high paying commission sales jobs haven’t worked out.  You need to work with your hands and leave the people alone.  You are screwed up.  You need to work with your body.  This is just your hand in life.  Hopefully the blessing is that you work well with your hands.  So taking another hourly job, starting from the bottom again, is the right thing to do.  So be open to new opportunity, and maybe work with a family member.
  25. W0rk On Being Better Each Day-  This goes along with asking yourself the question… “how do I improve?”.  Work on being a little better today than you were yesterday.  Stay on a steady progression upwards, just like the stock market does over the long term.  Things grow, that’s just the nature of it.  So if the country is growing, you should be too… and you can help contribute to that growth.  By working.  And if you work on getting better each day you MUST ALSO increase your chances of getting a raise.  I really think it could be done at McDonald’s or anywhere else.  Being a good employee and getting raises over time.  EVEN IF your a schizophrenic.  Work on getting better each and every day, day in day out… and those improvements that you make little by little, will add up to big change in your life.
  26. Stay Close To Your Family And Listen To Them-  My family pulled us through when I was thinking of divorce.  The voices were just so crazy.  If it wasn’t for my family, professional help, and medication, I wouldn’t be working where I’m working today, or married, with 2 beautiful kids.  My parents really helped me out.  I’m in debt to them.  I owe them.  And I’m working my way to paying them all back.  My credit card, my parents… at one point I was thinking of going homeless.  My parents kept me sheltered. For a schizophrenic not having to worry about anything is a relief.  And if it weren’t for my brother I wouldn’t have my job, so not only am I indebted to my parents, I’m also indebted to my brother.  In my experience, if you lean on your family, they will get you through tough times.  I do not recommend chronically leaning on them.  The idea is to become independent of the family.  To make enough money to even SUPPORT a family.  But I say if your a schizophrenic and you can make over $1,000 a month, and you can give your family some money… you ARE doing something.  And giving back wouldn’t have been possible without the people you are giving it to.  Stay close to your family and listen to them.  Family is important for schizophrenics, or anyone for that matter.
  27. Calmly Fulfill Your Responsibilities-  Those days where I feel like I’m dying probably because of too many cigarettes, and the voices are telling me to die, and that I’m dying, and what I do is simply work.  If you can work when you feel like your dying, for the good of all concerned, you are certainly doing something.  It CAN BE a good experience.  Calmly fulfill your responsibilities and you will be a lady or a gentleman.  It won’t matter that you have schizophrenia and hear voices everyday.  No one can tell.  No one cares.  You do your job well.  You are weird, don’t lie to yourself, but that doesn’t mean you can do a hands on job very well.  Even if the voices are telling you to die, you can go into work and do the job, and everything will be fine.  You’re not going to die, it’s only a hallucination, and you can improve.  Instead of imagining yourself dying when the voices tell you to die, imagine how you can improve your life.  See what kind of results you get.
  28. Think Of Your Family As You Make Your Hourly Pay-  If you don’t have a wife and kids, maybe think of your parents, or who ever supported you when you were at your lowest.  Work and think of them that your doing your best for them and that will make you feel good.  It will make you feel useful.  What better a thing can a man or woman be?  Serve, because you were served and even if you were a multimillionaire, you may never be able to repay what has been given to you.  You sure could do something though.  Something good.  But seeing as you have to work an hourly job, and are not yet a multimillionaire, think of your family as you make your hourly pay, and know your doing the right thing.
  29. Breathe!- Don’t forget to breathe.  It can really get you through the other side of the pain.  You can come out alive by breathing.  Can’t say it enough… breathe!
  30. Don’t Let Your Disability Define You-  Sure you may be a schizophrenic, but all that means is you hear voices everyday.  That doesn’t make you, you.  What you do, your actions, your work, the present defines you.  This may sound a little crazy as your reading about a schizophrenic, but looking only at the disease is not getting the whole picture.  You can also be a family man or woman, a musician, a writer, a poet, a worker, a salesperson, a marketer, a closer, a leader, the list can be endless.
  31. TELL Your Bosses Your A Schizophrenic Trying To Get Your Life Together- One of two things will happen.  They will either look down on you because you have a disability, or they will trust you because you were honest with them.  If you are heartfelt in your confession, it’s more likely they will trust you.  Let me know in the comments how that goes for you, I would really like to know.  I don’t think they are allowed to fire you, and you can feel better that you were honest about why you didn’t have the best attendance at first.
  32. Be Honest-  That goes hand in hand with telling your bosses your a schizophrenic.  Don’t do anything stupid and tell them anything that would get you fired, but be honest about your intentions, and if they are good you are going to do well.  Tell them about how things are going, and don’t be afraid to share work you are proud of.  Do the right thing, so honesty comes naturally to you.  Be honest.
  33. Treat Your Coworkers Like The Ladies And Gentlemen They Are-  This for me and my coworkers, holding the door for each other and calling each other “sir” or “miss”.  It means having respect for your coworkers.  What you do will rub off on them, so rub them the right way, to the best of your ability.
  34. Work More Than You Want To IF You Have To-  The holidays at my place means 50 or 55 hours a week.  That time is necessary to get the job done.  My bosses need me there for that period of time to make sure the job goes smoothly.  So I work a lot more than I really want to.  The paychecks are nice, and I gladly work the hours, and part of me wishes that I could get those kinds of hours all year long, but it is a lot of work.  I do it though, and my bosses appreciate it.  So if they need you, stay and do the work.  Do the hours, you’re getting paid anyways.
  35. Work With Long Term Success In Mind-  I read somewhere that it takes 10 years to master any given subject.  So I figure if you want to master a job, it’s going to take 10 years of your life.  If you’ve found a good job, you may want to devote 10 years of your working life to that cause.  If you do, good things may come of it.  If your a schizophrenic like me, holding it down for 2 years is an accomplishment.  I say go for another 8, meanwhile working on your business that’s going to pull you in 6 figures a year.
  36. Tell Your Voices In Your Head “I Must Live”-  You have a say.  What the voices say isn’t necessarily what’s going to happen.  You have some control.  Tell your voices what you think and influence the conversation in your head.  Tell them, when they tell you to die, that you MUST live.  Silence the voices that tell you to die by breathing.  You can live, you MUST live.
  37. Be Special-  If your a schizophrenic, your not normal.  There are only about 3.5 million schizophrenics in the U.S.A. according to Quora.  So if your working a job, chances are you might be the only schizophrenic who works there.  Especially if it’s a small company.  So really, you ARE special.  You hear voices, you may even hear your coworkers.  That makes you special.  Embrace it.  You are different.  You are part of the flavor of the world.  Take pride that you hear voices and can still work.  That makes you some of the most special of the special.
  38. Take Care Of Yourself When Your Off-  As I already mentioned, sleep enough, get good food, and drink plenty of water.  Don’t drink too much alcohol, and try not to smoke too many cigarettes.
  39. Do What You Do And Don’t Mind If You Die Doing It, Nothing Is Going To Stop You-  You could die at any time, young or old.  So life can at times be fragile.  If you feel like your dying, and you hear voices encouraging you to die, maybe you will die.  Still, that won’t stop you from doing what you are doing.  If you’re going to die, your going to die with your bootstraps on.  NOTHING will stop you from doing your job.  Not the feelings, not the voices, not the cigarettes, not the alcohol you drank last night.  You consistently do your job, because that’s what you have to do and you want to make the most of it.  Take that attitude and see where it takes you if your a working schizophrenic.
  40. Be Grateful For Every Penny You Get-  I’ve been fired from a job before and now that I’ve been holding another one I won’t make the same mistake.  That mistake was not being grateful for my job.  I now embrace the attitude of gratitude and I am happy to do my job because that’s what God has given me to do.   And it’s work I CAN do.  So be grateful for every penny, every minute you get at work.  Some people don’t have jobs.

That’s my 40 tips for schizophrenics who want to work, or do better and get promoted.  I sincerely hope you enjoyed it and can pull at least one or two nuggets out of there that will change your life for the better.  Make sure you subscribe to my list as you will get the best content that you can’t get anywhere else.  I’m working on getting my subscriber count up so that I can build relationships with you folks out there on the internet.  If your interested, please put your name and email address into the form.

Working For Almost 12 Hours And Then Playing For The Jackpot

I spent 5 dollars.

One on a 43 million dollar jackpot, and 4 on a 228 million dollar jackpot.

I hope I win.

But I also delivered over 6,000 box lunches to the race track over the last two days.  That was an accomplishment.

And I got to work with my brother.  We delivered together.

It was nice of them to put us two together for the delivery.

But we did it.

For about 5 hours I spent my time putting the box lunches into bags, marking the bags, and stacking them up.

Then putting them onto the truck, which was running to keep the cooling on.  It ran for hours.

And the team I was working on was kicking ass.  We were doing double what the other team was doing, and they really had me working.

When I walked in this morning I was told my team was going to be the best because I was on it.  I said they were too nice.  I’m just a regular guy.  That’s what I told them.

On the first trip, yesterday to deliver 100 bags or so, the GPS took us through the city, when we could have just gone around the beltway.  But I didn’t know how to get there so I was at the mercy of the GPS.  My brother was with me, and he sort of lost his mind over the traffic on the way back yesterday.

So today we got the directions from the president of the company and it took us right there.  It was a lot easier.

Today when we were there I was noticing a particularly attractive woman, who was wearing high heeled shoes and a tight dress and she had some very attractive legs.

There was another woman after I had my look who was standing in front of her, and then another woman came out of nowhere and starting walking right up to the truck to where I was sitting.

She looked at me and I looked at her and she kind of mimicked my gesture to her and then she looked at me again and grabbed her crotch.  Like I was a rockstar and I was being given attention by whores.

I did have two rockstar energy drinks today, one on the way to the first delivery.

I drove there twice today.

And I drove a larger box truck then I was used to driving.

8 feet longer.

And 18 footer.

And I don’t know how we would have delivered all 6,000 box lunches in our little 10 foot truck.  We would have had to made 3 trips.

But we had an 18 footer, so we only had to make 2 trips and there was plenty of room.

When I delivered the first delivery though there was 366 bags.  It took up almost all of the 18 feet.  It was by far the biggest of the sections we had to do.

If you figure there are 9 box lunches in each bag, that’s a lot of box lunches.

And I, my brother, and one other guy got them all there.  It was just me and my brother on that last trip.  It was nice because he didn’t complain much.

But all in all it was a good thing.

I got plenty of hours this week, and that’s a good thing for me and my family.

And I want to do more for them, as much as I can do, to help support them.

That’s why I write this blog.  For them.  So that I can be a better father by earning income from my writing.

It is much harder than it seems though.

At least that’s the way it’s been for me.

I feel like some of the commentors on this site are yanking my chain.  Telling me it’s good and not being genuine.  I would rather they come right out and say they don’t like me.  Instead of being nice and leaving trash in their comments.

I still have no subscribers to my list, so that’s a failure.  An ongoing one.  But I really need to spend some sober time editing my ebook so I can give that away as a freebie.  Something to get people to put their email address in.

Because I would love to start a business online and sell products to people.  I just need readers, and that comes with writing.

So I gotta write.  And write I will.  Write until the cows come home.

And that’s what I say we all could do.  Write.  Write like our lives depended on it.  Write and put blood, sweat, and tears into it.  I say that’s the way we get it done.

And we may never make any money at all off of our work.  But 10 years down the line that won’t matter, because we will have grown.  We will have accomplished something.

We’ll probably end up giving up the cigarettes.  So we can be wealthy.

Or we’ll just keep smoking and smoke our money.  We might have so much of it that it won’t matter, and we’ll still be able to leave our children money when we die.

That’s what I’m going for…. health, wealth, and wisdom.

And I figure you can have all three and still drink and smoke.

Probably would be better if you didn’t, but you want to enjoy yourself, so here’s to you.

But after working 12 hours, and driving a big box truck all day I was tired.

So tired I passed out.  I couldn’t drink anymore.  It was making me feel sick.

Tonight my wife and I are going out to eat.  I’m really looking forward to it as we haven’t been out in a while.  I’m going to eat a lot and drink a little.  I’m really looking forward to it.

But I’ve got to get my stuff together.  And I don’t curse on purpose, because I want everyone to be comfortable.  But I really do.

I’ve got to stop spending all my money on cigarettes and alcohol, and then buying groceries and gas on my credit card.  I’ve paid it off a thousand dollars, but now I’m spending on it again, and I’m really losing control.

Internet, if I can ever get my habits under control, and not buy alcohol and cigarettes when I don’t have the money, I’ll be in a lot better place.

And I think that’s what my writing is leading me to.  That’s where it’s leading us to.  Sober, non smoker, exerciser.

But really that would be no fun, and I’m really at my best when I’m smoking and drinking.

So it’s going to be hard to stop.

I’ve been trying since the beginning of this year.  We’re almost 6 months into it and I’m still smoking.

But back to the work.

The work of writing.

And work it is.

I go for 2,000 words each post.  I don’t always get there but often times I do.

I’ve still got a ways to go before I reach that word count, but I’ve already told you about my day.

So what do I blog about next?

How do I make this blog post worth it for you?

I could tell you I’m going to win 228 million dollars tonight, and become a multimillionaire overnight.

But what good would that do you?

I’m looking for the real value here.

What can I give to you?

I can give you my love.

And I do.

I can tell you that woman grabbing her crotch while I was looking at the pretty girl was an encounter.

She wasn’t bad looking either.  Not exceptionally pretty, but good looking.

The one woman though, she had legs forever.  A real nice looking body.  I like being around those kinds of people.  They get my motor going.

I guess you could say that I’m one of those attractive people.  Although my addictions are pretty ugly, I’m not bad looking on the outside.  Older women are always telling me how beautiful my eyes are.

Not to brag, but the ladies are attracted to me in a bad kinda way.  They like me smoking and drinking.  And I like them smoking and drinking.  Not that I would ever do anything about it, I’m married.  But I like seeing them.  I like talking to them.  I like being around them.  Especially when I’m working.

Although really when I was working there was an attractive manager that kept telling me how good I was and because I didn’t turn on my member and get it going with her there seemed to be a disconnect working with her.

I’m married and I don’t play games.  I don’t have the energy.  I just do my job, that’s what I need to do.  And I write this blog.  I almost do want to write dirty things.

Like what I want to do to my wife tonight while our daughter is out sleeping over my parents house.

But I try to be a gentleman so really I can’t go into that.

What I can tell you is that I sometimes try not to even look at other woman.  Don’t want to get the thoughts about doing them in my head.  But that makes it so when I do look, I look to much or I’m too much of a creep and I weird people out.  I should probably just look more.

I don’t think it makes you a bad person if you look at other women when your married to a perfectly good woman already.  Your only looking.  I like it.

I don’t want to like it too much though.  I don’t want to get started doing things I shouldn’t be doing.  Maybe if I ever made a million dollars off this blog it would be easier to have a girlfriend, but that doesn’t mean I WOULD have one.

What I would do if I had a million dollars is travel all the time.  And write about my experiences on this website.  That would be the life.

I want to do it.  Let me know how I can better serve you in the comments.  Or sign up for my list.  I’ll send you primo content.  Right to your inbox.

This is the way it is done.  You write your content until it’s done.  You write until you meet your quota.  Do this thing.  Do this thing now.  You can do it.  Write your blog post.

I worked for 12 hours, and I’m a schizophrenic.  That’s an accomplishment.  Even if I’m only getting paid $20,000 a year.  I definitely want to find out how I can make more money, but I think it all starts with me doing what I’m doing now.  Which is writing.

I do rely quite a bit on intuition so it may piss you off I do have any evidence for what I “think”.  That’s okay with me.  I’m still going to go with my gut.  I’m going to make the right call for myself and for my family.  I’m going to do the thing and have the power.

That’s all I can do, or anyone can do.  You have to write from the heart.  What comes to you.  This is the way it is done.  I can say because I write all the time.  I know how to write.  And it can be done by anyone who can write.  And that would be a lot of people.

But working at my job for 12 hours at 12 dollars an hour is a good day for me.  I used to try to sell and I sucked at being a business man so I had to take a low paying hourly job just to create an income.  It sucks, but it’s also a blessing because so far I haven’t found any other job I can DO.

And I want to do a job.  I want to work hourly.  It’s good for me.  I like it. I want to do more.  I have the weekend off and then I’m back to work.  But I’ve really got to get something going on this website because I’m going back to 30 hours a week and I’m going to have plenty of time to work on my business.

So here’s to working when your off, so that you have the chance to enjoy the benefits of your work later.  There’s always the possibility.

Thanks for reading,

The Blog Post To Help YOU Write The Next Best Blog Post

With this post I want to inspire you to take action and write your own blog post.  And if your reading this, and you’ll want to, you’ll want to write the best blog post on the planet.

One day at a time.  One blog post at a time.  Take over the planet.  Set your information free.  Get paid.  I say that’s what it’s all about.

And you can do it and feel good at the same time.

I’m feeling good off of the three beers I had leftover from a six pack I bought yesterday off of my sales mileage money.

Bad habit.

My work doesn’t have the best salespeople.  They drink and smoke, and don’t live balanced lives.  They definitely eat though.

And some times, during the holidays, work buys the food.  Yesterday they bought chicken, and today they bought pizza.  And they bought a lot of it.  The workers were taking home 4 slices a piece.  And donuts too.  I should have eaten more…

But I had three slices of pizza.  Two thin crust, chicken BBQ.  And one piece of cheese.  It felt good, especially since I had already had a turkey sandwich, a banana, and grapes for lunch.  That didn’t really fill me up though, I wanted more.  Especially after not smoking a lot.

I only had 3 cigarettes when I started work this morning, and that lasted me to almost 1 pm.  That was pretty good considering I did a lot of driving.  And when I’m driving I tend to smoke a lot.

I got bye though until about 4 o’clock and I heard my boss bought a pack of cigarettes even though she doesn’t smoke, just to give them out to the holiday help.

It’s not really a holiday, but these workers come in and help us do massive quantities of product, and without their help we wouldn’t be able to do the job.

So they feed them.  And talk nice to them.  Mostly.

They tell you to hurry up, or not to toss the tomatoes so hard on to the foil.  So as not to spray another worker with juice, especially when it’s your boss.

And I had that experience today.

Really I love working.

There is one woman there who says I’m one of her work husbands.  She says she has a lot of them, but I’m one.

And when my boss was telling the story today to 5 or 6 people about how a customer told me my eyes were beautiful, and she was in her 70’s and said she wasn’t flirting with me.

My boss overheard the whole thing and told the story about it today in front of all the holiday help.  And the rest of my bosses at that.

She was also remarking about how I was doing an excellent job doing everything.  Putting the foil down, laying out 2 tomatoes on each foil, wrapping the foil.  I was doing everything.  As it was needed.

When some foil needed to be laid down, I laid the foil down.  When it was better I wrapped the tomatoes, I wrapped the tomatoes, and so on.

I worked with the rest of the team.

And in that factory sort of setting I can really get into a groove.

Do it really fast, with a high quality.

And at the end of the day, my bosses always tell me I did a good job.

And I’m paying taxes.

I’m contributing to society.

And that’s more than some schizophrenics can say.

To be honest it’s a little much for me to take on making money off this blog.  To say that I’m working 30 hours a week and 50 hours on holidays is a miracle. I’m lucky to have my boss who helped me by giving me a job through my brother.  It really is a miracle I’m even working considering I got fired 7 years ago.

Now I’m suffering making half of what I used to make.

But it’s better than it was considering two years ago I had nothing and wasn’t really working at all.

Really what I’ve been up to is spending my money on alcohol and cigarettes and living it up.

Enjoying myself.

Bad example, but fun.

Now I’m winding down.

On Mother’s day I drank 10 beers, and I drank another 10 beers the Monday after that.  I drank 6 the day after, and now I’ve only had 3.

I think it’s about time I change my ways.

Quit smoking and drinking.

Makes me want to smoke just thinking about it.

I fight through it.  I have to wait.  I have to do what I’m doing.  I have a purpose I need to fulfill.  And so do you.  So write that blog post about that.  And do it with passion.  Write the best blog post on the planet.  And then try to do that everyday for 90 days.  I’m trying but I did 6 days a week for a month, and after that I’ve probably only written 3 times a week.

But I’m still keeping up with it.  And I think it’s only a good thing.  I think it would help any human being on the planet.  Become a better person.

For me it’s made me realize that I drink too much and I shouldn’t smoke.  Now I just really need to take action and quit the habit.

I had a meditation tool that I used called Centerpointe.  It was a product that you sat there for an hour with headphones on and it made the two lobes of your brain work together to get whole brain functioning.

It was like meditating for 30 years and then meditating.  All through technology.

One of my sales trainers in my head told me that I shouldn’t use that stuff.  It’s supposed to change your awareness forever.  For me all that happens is the grass is greener.  The sky bluer, my wife’s love deeper.

I’m happy I did it.  I think it may have had something to do with the schizophrenia?  I don’t know.

I certainly didn’t consider myself a schizophrenic when I was using the product.

That was years later that I was finally broken and admitted to a doctor that I heard voices.

After that it was medication and therapy, and has been ever since.

I’ve read in Elyn Saks book “The Center Cannot Hold” about how she would go off her medication because she was taught in a rehab that drugs are bad, and she didn’t want to be taking anything.

But she would always go crazy when she stopped taking her meds.

So I say stick on your medication, no matter what your taking, whether it be medication for schizophrenia, or high blood pressure.

The miracle of modern medicine.  Keeps us alive.

How do you write the greatest post on the planet?

Write about you.  You are original.  There is only one of you out there, and there will only ever be one of you out there.  You have the opportunity to make a masterpiece.  Make a masterpiece.

And who knows.  Maybe if you write good enough stuff for long enough, you ‘ll have enough readers that want to buy something from you and you can sell them things and make money.

Sounds stupid.  But so is drinking and smoking.

I figure I would give the blog a try sober and smoke free and maybe running.

I think I may really go for it.

I think I can do it.

I want to do it pretty badly.

I’m just so ugly.

People tell me I’m attractive, and so do the voices, but my cigarette addiction does make me feel a little less attractive.

The voices tell me I’m sick.  And a lot of times I do feel sick.  Not right.  Just making it.  In pain.  Can’t smoke any more.  Wanting to smoke anyways.  I almost want to go to cigarette rehab.

I try to smoke less and I smoke more.  It’s ridiculous.  At least it gives me something to write about.  Although I could be writing about more constructive things like working out, or running.

That would be better for me.  Healthier.  I would be a more fit person.  I already eat.  So I’m good there.  I just need to exercise and stop smoking and do the thing the best I can do it.

I say all this shit and then I smoke.  I’m addicted.  It’s ridiculous.

I really need to clean up my act and be a better worker.  The only problem with that is that I’m doing great at the job drinking and smoking.

Well I don’t drink on the job, but I do drink after.  And sometimes I do feel it the next morning.  Makes you feel like you don’t want to work.  But I always do.  I go to work.

I just got to quit the cigarettes.  Say it once, say it a thousand times.  Eventually I’ll walk the walk.  And I’ll be a better salesman because of it.  And my works salespeople will get better, and there may even be another promotion in store for me.

How do YOU write the blog post to begin all blog posts?

Write like your life depended on it.  Write like someone was holding a gun to your head.

Or write like you want to get the thing done so you can have a cigarette.

And if you really want to smoke then that could really get you writing.

Give you motivation.

To get the job done.

Not saying you should smoke.  I would never encourage anyone to do that to themselves.

But I do it.

And I say you should be sober too.

Except maybe on special occasions, with family or friends for parties.

There are not enough parties to have a problem as long as your not drinking by yourself excessive quantities.

The point though, especially if you want to write the greatest blog post in the world, is to make money.

I have a family, I need money. The more money the better.  So I’m all about increasing my income.  At my job, at this blog, and at the lottery.

If figure playing THOSE games will leave me rich at some point.  Especially if I can STOP spending my money on destructive things like alcohol and cigarettes.

I think sober I might even write better.

I’m sure it would be harder at first, but I don’t think that would last.  I think it would be better that I could take my wife out every month to eat somewhere, because I had an extra 200 dollars that month from not smoking.

We could go out to eat twice for that much.

And eat and drink and enjoy.  Out in public.  Playing the game.

When I go out and the voices of the other people start talking to me in my head, I don’t really say much back to them in my head.  I just let it ride and listen to them all.  Occasionally I’ll chime in for balance.

Really I like it when I go out and hear their voices.  Sometimes they tell me sexy things, and if it’s a girl it’s pleasing.  Men like talking too.  Sometimes they say murderous things, like they hate people.  All I know is there is no reason to fight and every reason to be civil with one another.

That’s what you learn when you’ve been fired from the best job you ever had in your life.

You learn your lesson.

Don’t fight.

It’s not the right thing to do.

Maybe you could scream at one another for a while, or maybe talk it out.

Or maybe just let it be.  And let someone go off angry and let them decide on how they are going to take it.

Hopefully they make the most of their anger and learn to become better.

That’s all I’m talking about so when you write your next blog post, the one that’s going to begin your journey on writing the greatest blog post on the internet, and write them everyday, think of how YOU can become better.

Write that all down.

That will be a journey for your reader to take with you, and you both will learn as a result.

So here’s to your successful post,

Happy writing,

Jesse Creel

How Do Schizophrenics Get A Job That Pays Them $20,000 A Year?

And the answer is to drink and smoke and hate working until your in such a bad place that you will take advice from your younger brother and take a job with him.

And if your lucky like me, you’ll advance, even though your drinking and smoking in your free time, because it’s easier on the voices.

And I love working.  It pays me.  I love it also because I like my bosses.  They are sweet.  They have the sugar.  And their women.  So it’s easier for me to get along with them.

I’ve always gotten along better with the opposite sex.  There’s no alpha male drama just the mother taking care of her children.

But I really could be more of a man and make something of this blog.  I could be a better man if I could take my yearly income and make it my monthly income.  Then I would really have a start.  I would of course pay taxes, as every man has to, but I would be rolling in the doe.

That is of course if I don’t first hit the lottery.  I’m playing for this Mega Millions $36,000,000 jackpot.

It’s a small one, but I think that might make it even better.  I have found that the people who win more than one jackpot win smaller amounts.  They don’t take away a billion dollar jackpot.  But really if you play it right, you only have to win once to make a life for yourself.

But I can do it.  I know I can.  You find out on this blog how I do it.  I’m going to win the jackpot, or I’m going to eat my words.  But I would rather apologize for being wrong then to never go for it.  And you never know, this could be the best story on the news for a while.

Man writes on a blog about winning the jackpot, man wins the jackpot, man writes blog, man writes ebook, man starts internet business with the winnings, man makes a life for himself.  It would be beautiful.

And it all starts here.  At this blog.  I write, I work, I drink, I smoke, I raise a family, I am a husband, I’m a salesman, I’m a schizophrenic, and I could change my life right now if I wanted to.  But I’m hooked.  I’m hooked on the lottery, drinking and smoking.

I’ll probably never win the jackpot.  That’s just a reality.  But I don’t face that reality.  I dream.  And I dream big.  I could win not just one, but several jackpots in my lifetime.  I could be a youtube star.  I could be famous.

Then again, this probably will never work.  I probably will never win not even one jackpot.  I keep holding out hope for it though.  I know that if I win my life will be a lot better, so I hold out hope.

I keep hoping I win, I keep hoping I win.

Like Jesus said to do, whatsoever you ask for in prayer, in believing you shall receive it.

So I believe I already have the jackpot win.

I believe that I am already a multi millionaire overnight.

Not that it happened overnight.  It took years.  But it happened seemingly overnight and for that I’m thankful.

I’m thankful for that because it finally happened.  I’m finally a multimillionaire.

I’m grateful.  I’m pleased.  I’m thankful to the universe.

I hope I win.

This is probably a good joke for a comedian.  At least I can fulfill a role in society by being the butt of a joke.  That is only of course if I don’t win.

If I DO WIN, there will be an instructional ebook on how to win one of the big games with your mind.  At this point I don’t know if I would charge for that kind of information.  I could say that I want to be a public service and give it away for free, or I could say that it’s too valuable an there has to be a price tag.

Either way I would write the book.  And borrow liberally from the past 10 years journals.  One of my therapists voices in my head told me if she ever read my journal that she would think I had a problem with the lottery.

I probably do have a problem with the lottery.  But that doesn’t stop me from thinking I’ll win.

The voices say my name and tell me no.  I don’t know what to think.

I think I’m going to win the jackpot.  Just wait and see.  It’s going to happen.  Then I’ll be famous and so will this website, and we’ll make merry of it.

That’s all I think is going to happen.

And I’ll get a free ebook for my list and start getting a list together, and then sell network marketing.  It will be beautiful.  If that’s what I do end up doing.

Because I might not sell network marketing to my list, I might sell ebooks and rock and roll albums.

I just recorded a rock and roll poem with no guitar.  Just me singing it.  The words.  It was beautiful.  It was about winning 36 million dollars.  Just a small jackpot, but something to live off so you could start a business.

And start a business I would.  I would buy traffic for this site.  Get people reading my work.  Get them to a landing page where I could get their email addresses.  Make money doing that!

What do you think, a blogger, an ad man, a business man, getting paid for selling e books.  And rock and roll albums.  And maybe end up getting a record deal.  There’s more than one way to become a multimillionaire.  The lottery, yes.  But there are other things too.

But I’ve probably waited too long to get going, I’m probably going to land flat on my face.  On the other side of the coin the only option is success and you’ve got to have it so… what’s going to happen?

I say the best possible outcome will come with diligent hard work everyday.  Getting the hours in at work, and then coming home and getting a couple hours in on the blog.  That be my way of life.

And there’s more to it than just work and blogging.  There is also family life.  Very important to overall well being.  A healthy family.

I love my family.  They are the best.

And the schizophrenia makes me a better dad.  It helps me guide my family to the path that I think is right.

But i could be better if I didn’t drink and smoke.  I could lead my family better.

But I must write.  That is what I must do.  I know this could lead me places, and my family places.  I just have to commit to writing everyday and see what comes of it.  I’m looking for a 6 or 7 figure income.

So how does a schizophrenic like me go from a $20,000 a year job to a $240,000 a year income from writing a blog?

I’ll let you know all about it on this blog, just check back for the new posts.

And the voices tell me I’m too high to make that kind of money.  I say I just have to work harder than the average person to make that kind of money.

So that’s what I’m going to do.  I’m just going to work harder.

And you won’t find a lot of quotes in my stuff.  It’s straight from my own heart.  In a way you could look at it as fiction.  My own personal dream world.  But I also say you could stand to learn a lot from me.

You could learn how to live even when your being told to die and you feel like your dying.  You could live to the next day and get better.  You might still be told to die, but that happens everyday, and it’s nothing your not used to hearing.

I guess that’s all for me today.  I hope you have a good time.

Living Each Day To The Fullest And Making It A Masterpiece

Because that’s what I do.

Today I worked a four hour shift.

Not much to it.  Some work, then two deliveries and some more work and then I was done!  Nothing to it!

After I got off work I proceeded to write a rock and roll song for the album I’m getting together.  It’s going to be 12 songs long.  They will all be different but they will also all be the same.  I’m certain I’m going to turn some people off.

But that’s okay.  I think what I’m going to get in return will be far worth the trouble.

Then again, I may never release it.  The voices in my head get me thinking twice about it.  Do I really want to release that onto the world, knowing my family could get wind of it.

Because really, I’m not much of a guitar player.  The words are my instrument.  I love composing them.  I love writing them with a pen.  And I also do love the free style guitar in E that I play all day long.

And solo too.

I really make masterpieces with the guitar.  I think.  And I also think I’m going to find out how valuable it really is.

It’s probably not that valuable, then again it could be a million dollar miracle.  Only time will tell.

But I think it’s good and I definitely think it’s good enough to sell, so I might just do it.  You can find out what happens by checking back to this blog or signing up for my email list.

If I really wow you, you may want to.

And I think I can do that by telling you I’m kicking ass, and you can kick ass too.

I’m a schizophrenic AND I’m holding down a job.  Even better this job gives out promotions for more than just manager and assistant manager.  You can be a salesman.

And I am doing remarkably well at it.  I sold 6 sales in a month and at least one of them has ordered more than twice.

That’s one of my goals.  Repeat business.  Long term relationships.

Work, my sales life at my job, really does teach me a great deal about how to be successful.

You can really model your companies success and launch a business of your own.  At least get a blog going at least.

Really I could completely change my life, and my families life if I quit drinking and smoking.  There would be more energy and a lot more money.

But then again I am in the habit of drinking and smoking everyday.  It’s not good.  I’ve been doing it since my twenties, getting blacked out drunk at my 21st birthday, I really took my liberty.

And I’m grateful for it, but really it’s about time I moved my habits to something more constructive like running, pushups, crunches, walking, whatever.  Anything but smoke.  I will for the first time in my adult life be really in shape, which is a great thing but also kinda sad it took me so long to do.

I guess I had to go through the drinking and the smoking.

I wasn’t very frugal.  And now I have an addiction to break and I know that it’s going to be hard.  But it will be alright, and I’ll get better.

And that will be living my life to the fullest.  I’m sure I’ll get more reading done.  I’m sure my skills will skyrocket.  I’m sure that I’ll be better able to serve people.  All of those things are great things.  All because I didn’t smoke.

Or drink.

Sober, non smoker, runner.  That’s what I should be.  I could write about running.

But I think I’ll always write about income.  It’s just so interesting to me.  Right now I’m making almost $20,000.00 dollars working at my job a year.  I plan on creating additional income through this website, but I think I’ll keep my day job all throughout the whole thing.  Even if I have to work Holidays.

It’s a good income and it’s a job I like to have.  Plus it gives me time to work on my writing throughout the year.  I only have to work 60 hour weeks 3 times a year.

So really it’s not bad.  I have a lot of work to do on myself, and my job allows me the time to do it.  It’s a good job and if it weren’t for the cigarettes and alcohol it would give me all the money I needed.

So it’s really an exciting time for me, knowing I could change my life any day now.  I could quit cigarettes and be free of the addiction and all the bad things that come with it.  Maybe I just will.  I know I will.  I’m going to have to.

And another thing I know is that I’ve got to keep typing.  If I’m going to make something of myself, I had better get my words down.  And get really valuable words down so I can make even more money.  More so so I can build long term relationships, but also for the money.

I guess I’ll learn as I go.  They say an expert is someone who has made all the mistakes there is to make in a given field.  That comes paraphrased from a source I don’t know, something a college professor would hate about me.

But that makes sense, no matter if you have the source or not.  And if I’m going to make mistakes, at least I’m making them in the name of supporting my family and giving to charity.  I’m really trying to be of service to world!

And if your like me, I know you are too!  Trying to be of better service to the world.  And I say we can do it all blogging.

You gotta figure you have gotta write some ebooks too.  But you can make it on the internet in a year they say, I say maybe you may want to put a decade into it.  Really master the art.  That’s what I’m going for and this 90 days straight blogging will be one of many throughout the years.  At least that’s what I think I’m going to do.  Everything is subject to change.

You’ll find out what happens if you subscribe to my list.  It will just be one voice in your inbox that lets you know what’s happening in the world.  How one schizophrenic is making it.  And doing it at a job and online.  You’ll come to find out how I improve my life, so that you can duplicate that success in your life.  God help you, you will.

Or I could simply be here to entertain you.

Whatever the case, I’m writing and I’m not going to stop.

Talk to you tomorrow,

Jesse Creel

Writing Harder Then The Rest Of The World

Because that’s what I think you have to do if you want to reach the masses.

I don’t know though.  I’m not an expert at selling ebooks at this point in time.  I plan to be, but only time will tell if I sell a million copies of one or more of my ebooks.

But I think that selling a million copies of one of your ebooks is a worthwhile goal.  It would free you from your job, and you could better support your family, and your charities.

But when your writing for 90 days straight, trying to put 1,000 to 2,000 words down a day, your writing harder then most of the world.  The only people that must be writing harder than you are college professors or students in fine universities.

But really I want something entertaining.  School bores me.  I want to read what I want to read.  Part of me makes me think that makes me a little stupid, seeing as I could have a better paying job with an education, but I’m unconventional, and I think I can do it with my high school education and the little bit I learned at community college.

Not to mention all the books I read in my free time.  And Thank You Jesus I do have spare time when I’m not at my hourly job or helping to raise my family.

The Easter holiday is over and I’m back to 30 hours a week.  I think on Monday, tomorrow, I only have to work 4 hours.  I’m going to come home and read.

My family won’t be home for several hours so I have the house to myself to study and self educate.  That’s really what I’m in the process of doing again, right now.

I put myself through a great deal of study when I was trying to sell network marketing, and it’s really paid off in the job I have now.  I put the product I bought for 5,000 dollars to use in the real world.  And I’m getting raises and bonuses.

Not that I didn’t get raises and bonuses before I bought the product.  I did.  But I think the network marketing product helped me in sales and that’s my new job.  And I’ve been selling so it’s working out.

So really I don’t have any regrets.  I’m happy I bought the product and went through the journey of trying to sell it.  What happened is that as a newbie I jumped into the deep end of the pool not knowing how to swim.  Really I needed to get out of the pool and do more that would cost me less, and at the time I had to realize how to work hourly again.

Well, I’ve figured out how to work hourly again, and I’ve better learned how to swim, so I’m back in the pool with a net, ready to scoop money out and bring it back home.

Not to mention make some new friends in the process.  I think the people will love my work and that it will work for them.  So I’m actually looking forward to selling a lot of ebooks.  I think the feedback will be overwhelmingly good.

But I can’t without mentioning the reality of the haters.  I know if I’m ever successful like I want to be I will have plenty of them.  And everyday I will have to deal with knowing people hate me and probably want to kill me.

Like the president.

If I ever sell a million ebooks I’ll probably get a security system for my house that would keep my family safe.

But really I’m not worried, because I know that most of my worrys won’t come true.  I think Mark Twain said something to that effect.

“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened”.

So why worry.

I could be down right now because I didn’t win the Powerball last night.

But I’m not.  There’s always another drawing and besides I have this blog.  And it takes real work to write it.  Something that could pay me in the future, and it gives me something to do.  And I love helping people.  Even if it’s only entertainment.

But I’m writing this to you in the morning, shortly after I got up.

I have an outing planned to visit my Grandmother for her birthday.  My uncle is in from Florida.  So I’ve got a few hours with the family planned today.  I wanted to make sure I got my blog post in for the day.

So here I am, writing hard, hopefully rivaling the hardest writers in the world, and I’m attempting to provide world class value to you in every post, every day I write.

And I hear clicking sounds on the computer screen.  I’m a schizophrenic and that’s part of the problem.  Cracking sounds in the house like the house is moving.  I think other people hear it too, and that they would hear the computer screen cracking as if it’s adjusting, and that’s different from the voices.

Really the whole thing is very interesting.

What’s the value here me telling you I hear all kinds of crazy things happening around me?

It’s that with hard work you can overcome your distractions and focus.  And you can take action that’s going to improve your life.  For me, as a schizophrenic, I just have to work harder than the normal person to get the same results.

It’s taken me 5 years to go from getting fired to finding another good job.  I was really in a hard place there for a while.  And I was thinking I was going to win the jackpot jobless!

All I can say is Thank God for my job.

And Thank God for writing.

And Thank God for the lottery.

All of which I think can and are working out in my favor.

You could argue that I’m delusional, but I think that I’m just highly optimistic.

And I’m going to get busy reading books because I think that’s the best place I could put my married nose, to stay out of trouble, and to become a better person.

And the more I learn the more the voices have to talk about.  It makes their conversation interesting when I’m reading, and they feed into my optimism when they tell me I’m going to be successful, or than I’m going to make $100,000.00 dollars dollars.  Or when they tell me they want to have sex with me, that’s a whole different thing.

Really that’s one thing I could live without.  Other people wanting to have sex with you.  I’m married and I don’t want to cheat, and really I have two kids so the sex at this point comes second to everything else.

Which is fine, you really don’t need it to get along.

But we do all have it.  Or can have it.  Sex appeal.

You could even say that sex appeal is good for you.

Just as long as your not actually cheating on your spouse, have all the sex appeal you want.  For me though, the voices tell me dirty things, they talk dirty to me, they talk sexy talk.  Part of me likes it, another part is just annoyed that I have to hear it when I can’t do anything about it.

But sex outside of my marriage is just a sacrifice I make.  It’s definitely a loss, but you take the good with the bad with everything.

Besides, I really love my wife.  I’ve known her since we were in high school.  We have a special bond.  Like I’m sure it is with all couples.  But we go back.

I used to have a job that pays me twice as much as I make right now.  That’s when I was writing the checks and paying all the bills.  Since then she’s taken over paying the bills and I give her as much money as I can.  Which is hardly enough.

But as with the lottery and not winning last night, I’m not going to get down because I make half of what I used to make.  I’m going to use this energy to fuel action and I’m going to make my life better.  For myself and for my wife.

And for my children, and for the people I don’t know that I give money to.

And what I can do is write with passion and love and commitment.  I can tell you all about what’s going on in my life, and the small successes I’m having so that you can have your own successes in your own life.

Yes, I got fired and am now  making half of what I used to make, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do more.  That doesn’t mean I can’t use what I’ve learned since I lost my job and create an additional income stream.

But I am not going to be a wanna be.  I’m going to write the most valuable stuff on the planet.  Things people thirst for.  I’m going to be a story of success, and I’m going to shine my light on the world.  I am going to expand and create and EARN more income.  I’m going to be a sensation.  And if I can do it, I know ANYONE can do it.  So go do it online.

Get your blog.

One of my commentors noted that I should get an affiliate link for my web hosting.  I could make money if someone read one of my posts and decided right then and there they were going to start a blog.  I would be doing a service to the world, and I would be getting paid for it.  I think this is some of the most exciting stuff in the world!

And this is to living the life of our dreams.  We can do it.  We can sell a million copies.  I think there is a way.  And when I make it I’ll make sure I let everyone know about it, so they can duplicate my success.

People have already done it.  One story of Amanda Hocking, sold over 1.5 million books.   Sure that’s not the norm, but it’s possible.

And the best part is you have to be a hero to do it.

So you’ve really got to increase you skills and become a better person so you can lead.

And I could really start by improving my blog.  Maybe getting a picture of me up there.

I have made some videos but I got out of the habit of doing that.  It’s hard to do.  But I’m sure I’ll make more videos.  Especially once I have the book up for sale.

I know people are reading this, and I know they are benefiting from it, unless they’re just pulling my chain, but I take the good with the bad.  And I love the good.

Maybe I’m just a fool.  But I think I really have a great idea.  And people all over the place are making money off of blogging.  I guess I had better start doing more web research on how I can do it myself.  Model some other blogs that are getting good results.

I hope that’s of value to you.  Maybe there’s something in this post that you can DO that will help you improve your life.  Maybe it’s writing that blog post, or commenting on another blog, or reading another blog, or signing up for an email list.  Maybe you should be writing your ebook.

Because I know we can do this, we just have to write.

Sure some of us will fail and we won’t sell a million copies.  And the reality is that the vast majority of people will never sell a million copies.  But you risk very little, and even if you make no money at all, there is a lot of growing.

So really there’s no downside to blogging.

And you may as well dream big and go for a million copies sold.

Thanks for reading, Take Care,

The Greatest Post Of This 90 Days Blogging Thus Far, I Expect Tomorrow To Be Better

Art baby.

That’s what this is all about.

Because when your drinking while your writing how can you expect to help people take action and improve their lives.  This should really be educational but I think it’s more like art.

Writing I think is an art.  A great thing.  And something one can become great at.

It just takes time, years and years of working on writing to really get it there.  Really if you decide to write then you might be looking at doing it for the rest of your life.

Because it’s not about retirement with writing.  You could make 100 million dollars and still want to write.  Because you have the passion for it.  Because you know you can make money.  So you do the work it takes to become valuable, by reading, and through life experience, and then you can write!

It’s a good experience writing.  Especially when you get stuff done and it pays off in traffic and comments.  I still have a list up and you can get on it if you want and you can buy things from me.  Be it rock and roll recordings, ebooks, or network marketing.  You can definitely come to me to help you boost your income.

Because I can tell you people like to party.  It’s a fun time.  And you can meet people.

Then again the voices and images in my head tell me maybe some people don’t want to be bothered.  I think I should take it on a case by case basis as any fair person would do.

Because the voices would tell me things that aren’t going to effect my actions.  I’m not going to worry about my son dying before me because I won the lottery.  Because unfortunately today that’s what the voices were talking about.

I was in the box truck for 4 hours starting at 9:15 this morning.  I drove to Fredricksburg Virginia.  From Severna Park Maryland.  There and back.  I picked up 12 boxes of ham.  I don’t really know why they make me do this, for only 12 boxes, but I do it because I don’t make the decisions about what I do.  I am their slave.

Because during the holidays I have the habit of going to work for almost 60 hours per week.  And to be away from your family for every holiday is hard.  But it does help the bank account.  And that helps my family.  So I’m really doing them a service to be picking up all those hours during the holidays when a lot of people are off.  I’m working and helping to support my family.

And God help me pay my credit card.  If I only made $$15,000 I would still be able to get out of credit card debt.  And I think that’s a reasonable goal to want to achieve off of selling your first ebook.  And that would really be an accomplishment.  To be debt free.  Of course, I really want $$$$15,000,000.00 to retire and stop working if I want to.  I think I might be able to get those kinds of numbers in network marketing.  I don’t think I’ll make that much off of ebooks and rock and roll albums.  Then again, I might!  Who knows.

What I do know is there is a whole lot of work that needs to get done to get me there.  So that means not only do I have to write this blog for 90 days straight, I also have to write songs, and read books, and take care of my family.  So really I have a lot of work in front of me.  But really it’s the work I want to do.  That’s what I do when I’m selling and I’m only getting 4 or 5 hours a day.  I spend the rest of the time working on myself.  So far it’s gotten me to you.

And I really want to love you for reading this so I’m going to keep writing.  I ‘m going to try and get some real value to you.  Hopefully get you to take action in your own life and start blogging, or blog everyday.  It could set you free from your job!

And don’t I want to write about some exciting things.  I think if I won the lottery I would take it anonymously and then just write an ebook about it and sell that to people.  I’m sure if I won the lottery I would be getting a lot of attention.  My traffic would probably skyrocket once word got out.

I would tell people how I won the lottery.  So that they hopefully will be able to duplicate the feat.  And I bet if it was a good book, some people, 2 or more would win the jackpot because of reading it.

Maybe that would take a little time, but I’m sure they would write in to tell me that I helped them and now they are rich and can give more to the people they love and to charity.

And I think that’s a good story.  I think that’s where the lottery helps people out.  When it’s in the name of giving.  To family, friends, to strangers, to charity.

I was thinking about giving to the 700 club.  They build wells in foreign countries for the people there to have better lives.  I think that’s cool.  I want to be a part of that.  I think I would be helping the world.

But I do give to the church.  I had a hard time with it on Easter Sunday though.  The guy would only take my donation for the first collection.  I had the twenty all ready for him and I held my arm out with the money and he just took the basket away.  The guy next to me made the comment that I couldn’t give it away.  We both almost laughed.

The voices at church were giving me a hard time about drinking.  Some good some bad, some stuff about my family, but everyone was civil.  Although there was a loud noise that was made that made the preacher stop and ask if everything was alright.

Right now the voices of the priests are in my head telling me that I should leave.  Really it’s nothing I haven’t heard before.  I have gotten into the habit of staying places, like marriage, even when I’m told to leave or go home.  And that habit serves me.  It keeps me together with my wife.

But I have to admit it’s taken a lot of work to get my relationship with my wife to where it is.  Admittedly she helps me a lot, but I also have learned to live with her.  When she’s screaming I just have to live with her getting that way sometimes.  I do love her a lot as any good husband should.  Really I would like to be a GREAT husband and retire her.  I really believe I can do that.

So that’s why I’m working everyday.  That’s why I work on this blog.  Because I believe in passive income.  Work once and have it pay you forever.

But that’s not going to keep you from continuing to work.

You gotta figure you gotta make a lot of money.

And you know when you have a family you need money.  Everybody needs money, but when you have a family you have more you need to provide for than just yourself.  As anyone would know.

But maybe what they wouldn’t know is how to blog for 90 days straight, and get more traffic as a result of working that much.  Because my traffic is going up each week and at this rate I’ll have a 100 visitors a month in about a week.  That’s up from 50.

If you want to buy something from me, because you really love this writing and want more of my stuff I’m going to make that a possibility for you.  I’m going to be working on that for the next two days, I have those two days off, the first two consecutive days off in a while.  And my family won’t be home so I’ll have the house all to myself.  I’ll most likely be spending most of my time in the basement.  Where the books are, the computer, the guitar…

You can do it all, I really believe that.  And I know bad things are going to happen.  You can’t stop that.  But the meanings you take from those things and questions you ask yourself are either going to make you or break you.  We have to find empowering meanings to the bad things that happen to us.

That I think is worth a million dollars or more.  You tell me in the comments what you think it’s worth.  Tell me what you think this blog post was worth to your life, and if your going to take action and improve your life as a result of reading this.

I love you, many blessings to you now and forever.

Working The 10th Day Straight For 11 hours

And I worked 12 the day before.

It was a long week.  But the time did go fast.  I did a lot of driving.

But I also drank more wine than I should have yesterday and today the voices of the customers were suffering from sickness.

I can say I really do think love gives things healing powers, and if you put love into the ham it should taste better.  And the more passion and love you put into it it just has to taste better.

And I think it does!

It would sell with or without me, but I am helping it to grow.  With the sales calls I’ve been doing.  I think I could be a better salesman if I didn’t drink and smoke.  I could live my life more in balance.  It’s really a way I could improve my life.  I think at some point I’m going to take action and do it, and start running everyday.

But for now I’m drinking and smoking.  Today it’s white wine.  There’s plenty of food in the house so I’m going to eat something here in a little while and thank God for that.

But writing can really put your thoughts down on something you can see.  I really should go over and reread this 90 days when I’m done writing it.  Will be sometime in July.  I’m not quite sure when I started writing everyday, but it happened and I’ve even been writing after 12 hour days.  And the voices tell me that’s the best stuff!

They really can be a blessing when it comes to writing.  The voices.  They help you out and encourage you.  It’s like getting comments on your blog.

Except I do prefer when it’s real people saying things to me and not just the voices in my head.  I love comments.  I even love the spam.  To me it says I’m doing something right.  If I could only get a list together I could really get a business going.

I should probably do more research online, read other blogs and find out how to build my list.

But for now I just try to write the most valuable content I can come up with.  Something you can use.

How can you use my musings?  To take action and improve your life.  And in my specific case, that means writing everyday.

Want to try it, it’s hard.  It’s really easy if you can just get yourself to take action.  But it’s hard at the same time.  Especially when you’ve been working long days at your hourly job.

But I do it, so I figure that anyone else could too.  I’m a schizophrenic afterall and the voices can really be somewhat distracting when I’m writing, so that’s a challenge.

But what I’ve learned and what I’ve written about in the past, about healing from schizophrenia, is that you simply have to work harder than the average person to get the same results.  It takes conscious work to succeed or even just live.  Especially when your working those hours and smoking cigarettes.  Mostly it makes the day go by easier, but I’ve been smoking them for 14 years and it’s starting to hurt.  It makes the day hard.

But that’s what I’m going through right now.  I have off tomorrow.  It’s Easter Sunday.

I can’t sleep in though because we’re going to church at 8:30.  Then off to brunch at my in-laws, then to my grandparents house in the afternoon.  A day with the family.  On Easter.  I have ham to give them!

They gave me a 8.7 pounder for working all those hours to help them out.  They really work you hard during the holidays.  A lot of stuff needs to be done.  And after you’ve worked 10 days in a row and the busiest and longest of those two days comes at the end of it, it’s rough.  There we’re people still working when I left, and they were working hard.

They’re probably still working as I write this.  They are making money.  But I am working on my dreams.  And writing could become an income producing activity, so it would be good to hone the craft.  And I think you can do that by writing for years.

Posting for 90 days straight.  How cool is that!  And all the while trying to provide the most valuable content in the world.  How do you do that.  I say the first step is to take action and write.  You probably should also take action and think before you write, so that you can write better.

But really I’m not here to give advice, although I do.  I’m here to create art, to drink wine, to work, to write, to play, to smoke, to live, to rock, to roll, and so on the list goes.

First and foremost being that I’m a family man.  And I put time with  my family above all other things.  Really that’s part of why I want to make money writing, so I can have the holidays off!

If your with me say HELL YEAH!  Or if your religious, HEAVENS YES!  MAKE MONEY WRITING!  WE CAN DO IT!  THESE ARE MY WORDS!

Maybe I’m wrong, you can’t count that out as a possibility, but I say that the more writing the better, and don’t forget to read.  I know other people can do it, I say why can’t we!

Really I put my time into my job today.  I fulfilled my responsibilities for the 10 days straight, and everything went smoothly.  I was feeling rough by the end of it, but I made it, and really considering it was the Holiday, they really took it easy on me.

I didn’t go without a 12 or 11 hour day for the week, but mostly I worked 9.5 hours a day for the 10 days.  Big paycheck.  It’s coming.  I’m going to do the right thing and pay my debt off a little extra.  That way I can pay it off faster.

That’s about where I’m going to end it for here today.  I really don’t want to give you too much at a time.  If you want the whole thing you can buy an e book.  They will be up for sale shortly.  IF you want to buy an e book, you will be able to.  My gift to you.  All I want to do is be of service to you.  Whether that’s in value or entertainment or both.  I hope this serves you in reading it.  Leave a comment or sign up for the list.  I would love to hear from you and continue our conversation.

Working 9 And A Half Hours For 7 Days Straight

That’s what I’m working now, I’m in the middle of it.  It’s Wednesday and my next day off is Easter Sunday.  We are very busy this time of year, a lot of work to be done, for long hours, and for days on end.

It really will be a ten day stretch for me.  And this probably isn’t even a big deal for a lot of you who just work your jobs during the Holidays, and get your hours.

But I really do love the holiday.  I work long hours and I get huge paychecks.  Huge in comparison to what I get the rest of the year.  And because they’ve given me raises since last year, this Holiday should be my best check yet.

But I’m sure it will all balance out, and even though I’ll be making more then when I started, I will not be making it like I did at my first good job.  One that was a terrible loss to take.

I increased my hourly pay from 10 dollars an hour to 18.50 an hour in 2 years.  That was a great success of mine.  I really know how to work hourly.  But I lost it all because of interpersonal ineffectiveness, and I couldn’t get along with the group.  But more than anything I was being driven into rock and roll and business.

So really, I want to focus on my strengths of getting promoted rapidly and I can worry about keeping the job after I get the raises.  I think now, looking back on it, an attitude of gratitude could have really helped me.  I was hating what I was doing.

Now I love what I do, and I love the people I work with, and it almost seems like a accident that it all happened like this.  I’m being promoted along with another friend of mine that also works there, and she started not long after I did.  She’s already an assistant manager!  So it’s the two of us going up together and it’s pretty cool.  Her as a manager and me as a salesperson.  Really, their only salesperson.

But I really think that anyone could get it, though something tells me that not everyone could do what I do.  But I think everyone has that potential, and really there’s only one way to find out if you can do something, and that is to DO IT!

I have a pretty long list of things I cannot do.  A lot of sales jobs.  I give all the credit to God for my current success, and when I look at it that way I can’t help but think that God just wasn’t with me when I was failing.  Maybe I should look at like God is always with us, and we merely have to be valuable people to make it in the world.

For me, because of my massive failure at my first really good job, I almost want to take a class on interpersonal effectiveness.  Although I do have a therapist, and he helps me with some of those things.  So it’s not like I haven’t really done anything about my problem with interpersonal effectiveness.  I’m working on it.

But as I mentioned earlier, I really think being grateful for my first job would have helped me get through and improve on those rough days with the people.  You can only keep your head down and work for so long before you have to take notice of what’s going on around you.  And the sooner you do, the better off you’ll be.

In fact, that should really be the first thing you attend to when you get in.  Interpersonal effectiveness.  I’m not good at it.  It’s gotten me fired before.  I am lucky to have another chance at growth at a different job, but it was a long hard road getting from the first to second job.  And a lot of sales jobs and failures along the way.

Thank God I now get paid hourly to sell.  I’m not making 18.50 an hour but I am making more than when I started.  Three dollars and twenty five cents more.  It’s taken me almost two years to do that.  So not as good as the first job, but still good, still advancing.  Something to keep you interested.

But what I do right now is make almost $20,000 dollars a year, working at my hourly job.  I want to be able to take that and make it my MONTHLY income.  That would definitely be an achievement.  Something worth writing about.  So I’m set out to do it.  And I’m going to write my way there.

At least that’s the plan.  I also want to get an album together.  Something I could put up for sale.  I’m really going to give this internet thing a shot and see if I can make a million dollars.  Really I need 15 million, but a million is a start.  You gotta figure, after you make your first million, the other 14 have got to come easier.  At least that’s the way I see it.

But the way I see it, if you do it with passion, the money will come.  If you make something valuable, people are going to buy it.  If you are a good salesman, who lives your life in balance, you will sell things.  If you are a good worker, and do your job well, your boss will take care of you.  Maybe I’m right, maybe I’m wrong, but that’s just the way I CHOOSE to look at things.

And I think that choice effects my reality.  It makes my life better.  I am taken care of because I am a good person who gives and takes care of other people.  Not that bad things won’t happen, and less bad things will happen then you think they will, but life is not without it’s struggles.

Take Jesus Christ for example.  His life was filled with suffering, and the way he died was no exception.  You gotta figure good people suffer everyday.

So if your good and your suffering, my heart goes out to you.  I wish I could give you twenty dollars.  My money goes to the church and to my family, and to my cigarettes and wine, and to gas and food.  And of course to my credit card.  Which the good news is I’m paying off.

But I do plan to give more to my church, so that people who are suffering can live a little bit better of a life.  If I really make it, I might look into other donations of charity.

For now, I want to sell ebooks and rock and roll so that I can buy a bigger house.  So I’m writing everyday.  I hope you have enjoyed this days post, I know I have enjoyed writing it.  Thanks for reading, take great care of yourself.

Peace and Love,

Working Hard At An Hourly Job When It’s The Busiest Times Of The Year

Because, as you may know, Easter is right around the corner.

And we sell a lot of ham during the week leading up to Easter.  I’m working 10 days straight, without a day off during this Holiday.

And my day starts by picking up the workers from the city.  I’m driving a rented van, and I take it home with me at night.  I’m leaving my car at work for this week.

But I’m very busy all day.  Sometimes I work in the store but a lot of times I am out doing deliveries, in my own car or in their box truck.   I think it’s cool I get to drive a box truck for work.  My son would like that.

So I don’t make much, really I’m not even close to what my wife makes, and that’s a bit of a blow to my self esteem.  But it’s been this way for a while, and now I’m doing as well as I’ve ever done, so I’m really improving and doing better for my family and for my church.

But I’ve been working these hours and now I’m drinking water because I don’t want to be too hard on my body with drinking more than one glass of wine.  I’ve already had my glass, so I’m writing with a glass of water.

And it’s good to be mostly sober.  You can really work hard and give it your best at work.  And it’s good to walk.  I just got back from a half hour of walking, which is doctor recommended, and I’m glad I went out and did it.  Now it’s time for the writing, because I told myself I wanted to do 90 consecutive days of blogging, to promote more traffic, and I don’t want to miss a day because I’m tired from working.

So here I am, writing this to you, tired from work, with 5 more 10 or more hour days in front of me, with the expectation to write for each one of those days and beyond.  I figure the more posts the better.

So now the question is how do I provide more value to you.

And my answer to that question is to be a great writer.  And to tell you about my day in a way that’s captivating, informative, valuable, and able to make your life better in some way.  And I can write my way to becoming better.  And I can be a better example, and I can inspire you to take action and improve your own life, and we can be better together, and make our world a better place to live in.

So really, I do my job happily.  I am happy to be of service.  I am happy to work.  I am afterall a schizophrenic, and if all I can do is great at my work making 18,000 dollars a year, and I never make any money off my blog, then I will still have accomplished something.  But I’m ready to take the next steps.  I’m ready to build a business online.

I’m ready to take my yearly income and make it my monthly income.  I know this can be done.  And working overtime this week is only going to help me.  So really, I’m doing the right things.  Working my job, and working on my dream, at home.

The dream of a home based business.  Time and money freedom.  That’s my goal and I’m going after it everyday.  Take inspiration, and start working towards your goals, a day at a time.  One day after the other.  See where it takes you.  You could get something really great out of it.

So far, it’s been really great for me.  Some of the comments I get are really moving.  So far nobodies joined my list yet, but that could change any day, with my work working for me even when I’m sleeping.  I propose a blog could really change your life!

And that’s really what I want to tackle here, is blogging and writing e books.  Blogging and creating a list.  That’s what I want to do.  Maybe blogging and selling network marketing companies.  Maybe blogging and selling rock and roll albums.  Simply selling something good, and profiting online.  I know it can be done!

I also know that you can sell so many copies of something you become a millionaire.  And with being a millionaire you would have a lot more choices than you would if you were only making 18,000 dollars a year.

So I’m going for it, and I say you should to.  There’s really nothing to lose.  The email list is expensive at 30 dollars a month, but the website costs less than 10.  So you could get yourself a site and a list and come up with paying less than 40 dollars a month to maintain it.  That’s not that bad if your trying to build a business.  You do afterall have to pay to keep the lights on.

But I’ve made my mind up to build a list, so that’s what I’m going to do, and see where that takes me, really I’ve made my mind up that I’m going to win the lottery jackpot, I’ve made my mind up that I’m going to sell a million ebooks and a million albums.  And the way I see myself getting there is to blog everyday.

I’ve already written a couple books, and I’ve recorded a lot of songs, and I know I can readily create my product at any time.  And that with each passing day the quality of my products will improve, and I can be sure I’m improving.

And I know this kind of thing can be done simply by anyone, so I figure, why not me?  And I further figure why not you, reading this?  Why don’t we do this together?
