Work Produces Income, Therefore I Speak About Work

This post will be about the last two days I was at work in the store.  I wasn’t performing sales operations.  I did what needed to be done for the company.  This post is simply to inspire you to know schizophrenics can work.  Although I’m not like schizophrenics you may see on YouTube, I do hear voices everyday, and they tell me anything from the bad to the good.  I influence what their talking about with my thoughts and actions.  I’ve learned to cope with the voices that tell me to die, and am making some changes in my life that I think will really benefit me in the future.  I think we as workers in the USA or anywhere need to take a minute to acknowledge that by working we ARE really heros.  We are supporting our families, contributing to society, and if your anything like me, giving to help the less fortunate.  That’s part of the reason I keep this blog, and that purpose is to serve schizophrenics valuable knowledge they can take action on.  If you like what you read, consider subscribing to my email list, you’ll even get a free ebook.

Day 1 Speaking About Work

They had me take the day off sales calls because the company truck needed to be picked up.  It had just been worked on to fix the refrigeration in the back and something to do with a brake line.  We tried to pick the truck up earlier in the week but it wasn’t ready yet, the part hadn’t come in.

First thing in the morning I go with a coworker, him driving, to the truck yard.  We talked about him getting a better paying job, and a new opportunity he had to do something exciting.  I talked about my blog, and shared with him what I was doing online.  We talked about learning finances even when we didn’t have the money to invest.  It doesn’t go without saying that I write for schizophrenics, so when I told him I had a book called “Schizophrenic Sales Success” I didn’t know what he would think about it.  It didn’t occur to me to ask him to join my list, as I have with another one of the people I know.  We got to the truck yard.

The guys weren’t there yet, and we pulled up on the owner who was about to open up the gate.  I thought I was meeting with the guy I’m used to dealing with, but this was the owner of the yard.  He said we could “absolutely” park our car in the yard while we figured this whole thing out.  I didn’t know if we could take the truck until the guys showed up at 10am, which was about 10 minutes away.

Turns out the keys were in it, and the owner, seeing as the account was already settled, just let us take off.  I like dealing with the business owners, those are the people I like dealing with, not that I don’t like talking to receptionists. At any rate, I was back to the store in a half hour.

Originally I was under the assumption that someone would be going with me to help me move the 60 cases of water I was going to pick up.  When I finished picking the truck up and got back to the store they told me I was flying solo for this trip.

So off I went.  I went to the store, picked up the 60 cases of water, and drove to the 2 other stores and then back to my home store.  I dropped off 20 cases of water to each store.  I really didn’t even mind doing it on my own, it just takes a little longer.

And I’m in for the long haul, everyday.  That’s part of my philosophy.  In my sales capacity I want to build long term relationships, where they order every year.  This day though, was about driving, and then after I lifted 60 cases of water worked with the meat at the store doing sandwich portions.  It took from from about 10am to 2pm to deliver the water.  I got off around 4 so it really wasn’t too bad, I got in at 9.  I got some hours!  And that’s what I need to exist right now.

Really I could use a lot more, but my job is a blessing.  There’s a lot I can build on as evidence in this blog.  This was day 1.

Day 2 Speaking About Work

Friday is TryDay Friday at my work.  Recently they started doing free samples, a summer thing, every Friday.  For a while we were sampling ribs, but now we’ve moved on to our meats, cheeses, and cookies.  It’s my job on Friday to host the TryDay Friday.

It’s really pretty easy.  First thing I do some house maintenance, and help out my coworkers.  I chat with them.  I go to the bank for my boss.  I come back from the bank and start the session.

It’s 3 hours long and today it was eased by my blog, which I reread and thought about.  I reread Success Hourly and it made me think that I really need to wrap my head around not smoking.

That’s what writing does for you, it helps you get your life together.  At any rate, I did the TryDay Friday and talked to some nice people, and that’s my job.  I’m giving away free product, and people love that.  Sure, some won’t take it, but some take even more than they should.  It all evens out.  And they buy!

We sold a good amount of sandwiches considering it was raining heavily for some of the day.  Really it was a slow day.  That’s our summertime.  It’s time for sales work, and generating more business.  The store doesn’t do much. It’s the holidays that’s the reason my company is in business.  It’s 50 hour weeks, 7 days straight.  But it’s okay, because the rest of the year is easy, and it’s a fun job with good people.  Granted we don’t make much.

I’ve read that high paid salespeople and CEO’s can be the most miserable people.  It’s the poor who are just happy to be alive and take great joy in living.  I don’t believe it for a second.  I think that you simply have more choices when your rich.  Really compared to alot of the world, I have alot of choices, and I’m poor compared to a wealthy American.  I set aside the time I’m spending now to live that life.  Of making it.  Granted I have a lot of help.

I am impossible at staying focused at this point, but I was speaking about my Day 2 at work, and I did the TryDay Friday.  Afterwards it was just working with the team until there were only 2 of us, and we closed it down at 6.

I got there at 10, left at 6, did 8 hours.  And it was fun, it felt good, I like working with the people I’m working with, there’s growth opportunities, I get the best jobs which is driving and I love driving.  I can really zone out and getting paid to do it is great!  I also like working in the store as I did on this day, with coworkers, some of which I would also consider friends.

So I like producing an income, and working those hours, whether I’m selling or I’m working in the store, is giving me that income.  And I’m a schizophrenic.  I can tell you that talking to people helps to relieve the schizophrenia.  Instead of imagined voices I hear their REAL voices and it’s a relief that someone doesn’t know what’s going on inside of my head.

Ending Speaking About Work

 

The end is that there will be another post about work, because it’s never ending.  With continued work is continued opportunity to improve and become MORE of a success.  I hope my work inspires you to work yourself, and if you like it and would like my free ebook “Schizophrenic Sales Success”  get on my email list, and you’ll get the book and updates to this blog.  This is a win win.

To Your Success,

Jesse Creel

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.

Schizophrenia, Healing, and Empowerment

Yes, I am a schizophrenic.

And I have been for about 7 years.  Since I lost my job in 2010.  That’s a landmark for me.  I’ve since recovered and have another job.

But it wasn’t always this way.  At one point I had to heavily rely on my family to stay with them and get by.  They helped me pay my debts when I didn’t have the motivation to pay them myself.  At one point I hated working and wasn’t able to like the things I had to do.  So I didn’t do them.  I would just sit around and listen to the voices tell me to die, and at one point they had me convinced I was going to die.  That this was it.  That it was over.  Tears came down my eyes.

And they still tell me to die.  But I haven’t yet, and I’m recovered and working.  And I’m in the process of improving.  Of living life again.  Of solving problems, or at least working on them… and I’ve come to a conclusion.

If I have schizophrenia all that means is that I have to work harder than a normal person to achieve success.  So that’s exactly what I’m doing.

I have some serious issues to tackle, like my credit card debt.  Which is almost more than I can handle… but I’ve got to stay committed to paying it off to a zero balance in the shortest amount of time possible.  And I can do it.  Tied into my problem of debt is my problem of not getting enough hours at my job.  I’m working and that’s a success, but I’m not consistently getting 40 hour work weeks.  I’ve got to increase my income, and get full time work… so I’m working on finding another job.

I do love the one I’m working now though.  I’ve met some great people working there and the job is practically easy.  But it’s something you do when you can’t do anything else.  And at the time I took the job, I really couldn’t do anything else.

But now I’m getting it together and I’d like to work at a place that offered benefits like a 401k.  I’m looking forward to the future now.  For my family.  You see, I have a wife and two kids.

And I’ve really got to start looking out for myself, for them.  Rock and roll, sales, and network marketing really took their tolls on my working life and I lost far more than I gained.  At the same time those were some of my most valuable life lessons.  I learned later that you should only seeks gains when there’s little or no risk.  Otherwise you could end up losing it all.  And that’s exactly what I did.

And although I’m working successfully I still haven’t recovered from the losses I took when I was finding my path.  My path now is not to rely on social security for disability but to work 40 or 50 hours every week and pay off my debt as fast as possible.

And there are millions of jobs out there so I’m optimistic.  I’m thinking I’ll will eventually find the right job for me and I’ll be able to work full time, and I will have improved my life again.

And I must keep those improvements coming.

So now that I’ve healed parts of my life of the schizophrenia and I can still work in spite of it… I’m ready to move on to other parts of my life and heal and become empowered in them as well.  And if you want to take that journey with me as well, my friend, you are more than welcome to.  The way I see it is we are in for a lot of hard work, and a lot of blessings too.  May they come in avalanches of abundance.

So I’m empowered to make progress, and the faster it is the better.  We’ve got to find ways to speed things up because you do know that our time is one of our most valuable resources.  Only so much of it, and then it’s over so better make the best of it.

I know for certain that hard work is a good thing and it amounts to something.  What it amounts to depends on how well you do it, but no matter what your capacity hard work is a good value.  I have learned to like hard work.  And I love putting hard work into my creativity because that’s just so much fun.  So as we work, we can have fun, and doesn’t that make your day just so much better?!

If we could only get our creativity to lead to income, now then we’d really be talking.  And walking.  Walking the walk.  That’s what we want to do so it’s time to take massive action right now.  Think of something you can do that will add value to a massive number of people, and do that thing right now!  Stop reading this and go do it, the blog will be here when you’ve finished.  Take massive action!

I hope that empowered you to take the first step, or the next step… if you didn’t yet stop and take massive action toward one of your goals, then go do it now!  I’m writing this to tell you I believe in you and I know you can live the life of your dreams.  Get on with it!

And if your a schizophrenic and your say, waiting to get on disability, and you need money now, go out and find a job!  You can do it!  And you can work and recover and get your life in better shape.  I did it, you can too!

And you know there’s going to be haters out there, hating on you for doing you.  You just got to “Shake it off” as Taylor Swift says.

And work your tail off.  You can do it!

So if your schizophrenic, or suffering from any other problem… heal! and be empowered!  Share your story with others once you’ve got a better hold on your life and help others to avoid the same mistakes you made.  A few will learn from you and put into action what they’ve learned.  And those few people who become better because you helped them are benefited by your contribution.  Become a better person and have a more positive impact on the world!

I love you, thanks for reading.
