Blogging Is Far Superior To Winning The Lottery

With blogging you can make a million dollars a year.

That’s as much as the lottery would pay you if you matched 6 numbers on a single ticket for one of the baseline jackpots of 40 million dollars.

And just think, if you want that extra hour of blogging because you want to take massive action in the direction of your dream, you are working by putting hours and hours into the action of typing.  Of creating art.  Of creating business.  Of staying consistent.  I’ve been reading some interesting books and they talk a lot about feelings.

Neville Goddard was the main inspiration, in my opinion, for Wayne Dyer’s book “Wishes Fulfilled”.  Neville’s teachings are based around imagination and feeling, and God, which is documented in the book I’m loving reading right now “Wishes Fulfilled.

Get your copy by clicking this picture (I’ll get paid):

In it he says a lot about how you should think that you’re God, because that’s what Jesus taught us to do.  “The kingdom of God is within” He said.  Dyer says that when you believe you are God, you can live the life you want to live.  That’s my short and skinny of it.  That’s just to put it into my own words.

To be honest I’ve been putting what I’ve been reading in “Wishes Fulfilled” into action in my thoughts.  I’ve been thinking thoughts about how “I am Love” and sometimes “I am God”  and sometimes “I am a problogger”.  And sometimes “I am healthy wealthy and wise”.  Dyer says that by using the “I Am” which is what God said to Moses in the burning bush “I am that I Am.  Dyer says to use your I am’s with responsibility to the loving light that you are.  I far prefer writing about this than writing about what I would do with the money when I win the lottery.  Or just visualizing it, which is what I would do often instead of writing.

There’s been a few things that have set me off on this path of evolution to love blogging.    One being Schizophrenia, one being personal development, and one being just blogging itself.  This is what I have come to discover about  my blog and my business.  What I’ve really been doing though is imagining and feeling like I’m healthy, wealthy, happy, and wise.

Here’s a sample of the affirmations:

I am healthy.

I am wealthy.

I am wise.

I am a problogger.

I am a lottery winner (just in case)

I am happy.

I am fulfilled.

I am Love.

All things can be done with God.

I am healed.

 

These are just a few of the affirmations I use everyday.  When it comes to visualization time these days, I visualize and feel what it feels like to be healthy, wealthy, and wise, and Happy!

When your a schizophrenic and the voices tell you “YOUR NOT!” when you affirm your healthy you have to learn to embrace your superpower.  That superpower is to be the ultimate guardian of your imagination and your feelings.  There is a large “NO INTRUDERS!” sign on the door of your consciousness.  No one else is allowed into your mind.  Not even the voices that come from it.

When they shout “YOUR NOT!” at me I have several tools that I would like to share with you on how a schizophrenic, or anyone else for that matter who has their own self doubts, could harness the power of their own thinking, and use it to benefit their lives.

Nonsense

When you have a voice, or a thought if your normal, that tells you your not healthy I recommend you say one word.  That word is”nonsense”.

There are other words you could use, and I will mention some here, but think about nonsense for a moment.  Imagine what would happen if when you had a self doubt about whether you could do something or not you just repeated the word nonsense when the thought, image or feeling came up, what would happen next?

Maybe you would ask yourself the question, “How do I benefit from this?” or maybe, if your proclaiming to your mind and body that you are indeed “Love” by saying “I AM LOVE” maybe you would hear a new voice, or have a new thought, that was empowering.

To be honest I’m now drawing a blank on what other words you could use to combat self doubt, but in my mind I no doubt use them.  “Nonsense” is just my favorite and is also used by others to combat their own inner negativity.

This is a little about all three things, the schizophrenia, personal development, and blogging.  That’s my story, and it’s one of beauty and magnificence.

This is what I’m really really good at, and if your thinking about starting a blog, rest easy, because your going to be nothing when you start.  You’ll be an unheard of nobody, like everybody else who started with nothing and got everything.  This is why I like blogging so much better than playing the lottery.  You can put hours and hours of typing (actually producing something, instead of just visualizing your hours away) about things you really care about in your life.  Like helping people, or serving others.  You could be writing about how you value everyone like they are a family member, and just do your best to be of service to people.  If you put the hours in, in a God ordained profession, success will come without fail.  God cannot fail.  You just have to find your calling.  When you think blogging is your calling, I’m your man.

If your thinking that I said I was going to win a massive jackpot and then changed my mind to being a problogger, then you might be thinking I’ll have about as much success getting a million dollars a year blogging as I would at matching 6 numbers on a 40 million dollar jackpot.  To that I would say nonsense.

Switching my affirmations from lottery winner to professional blogger is a wise decision because I’m don’t spend my all my free time visualizing a lottery win.  Instead I’m writing and I find that to be a more productive activity than visualization alone.  That settles that objection, what’s next?

I don’t think there is anything next.  There’s no downside to switching your thinking from being a lottery winner to being a professional blogger.  A problogger.  The I am that I am that God said he was.  The manifesting of problogging.

” I am a problogger.”

What’s the harm in saying that to yourself as you visualize?  And try to feel what it feels like to be a problogger.  Feel the feelings of being a problogger.  They say that your destiny is in your feelings.  I would say the benefit of spending all that time visualizing and feeling like a lottery winner did me good (even though I didn’t win a big jackpot) because it taught me how to visualize, and how to feel good.  I can easily use my powers to visualize and feel what it’s like to be a problogger to manifest money using my blog.  Really, to Earn money off my blog.  When your putting hours and hours into it, your earning it.  But I would say that mastery of blogging is a worthwhile pursuit even if you don’t get paid for it.

I believe that if you would do it even if you didn’t get paid, you’ll get better results.  Sure, we can work to get paid, but we do it for much more than the money.  That’s why blogging is superior to winning the lottery.  With the lottery you don’t get the connections with other people in a work related way.  You do with blogging.  And once you start to build your email list, you’ll be growing and it’s never going to stop.  You’ll always be bigger today than you we’re yesterday.

The downside is there’s no immediate payoff.

That said, with blogging, a lot of experts will tell you that you can start to earn money from it by the six month mark.  I was in a network marketing company that trained their people to do it in 90 days.  It can be fast!

That would definitely entail a lot of hours, work ethic, wisdom, and health.  You don’t need a lot of money to start a blog so I don’t include money in that list.  Although you can pay big like I did and join a network marketing company for $5,000 and get their “masters course”.  Now instead of network marketing, blogging has chosen me and I’ve chosen it, so there’s no need to buy all the expensive products.

Now if you had an email list of 2,000 buyers then it might make sense to join the $5,000 opportunity.  You could stand to earn a lot of money with your resources.  But just starting, with no blog, no traffic, no comments, and no list I would recommend you just buy the domain, the hosting, and the email list and get to writing.  That’s how the big people did it, they had the blog first, and then they bought the expensive product they could re sell.  They already had a list of buyers!

Just think how exciting that first sale is going to be.  It is going to feel like you won the jackpot.  Just think how much more your capable of and take action.  Maybe that action is to read on and then join my email list.  Maybe that action is to ask yourself the question “what does it feel like to be a problogger?”.  Is that action to get your own blog and start on your own 90 journey to results?  Is that action to write your first blog post or leave your first long comment on someone else’s blog?  Is that action to start your email list?  Whatever it is, take action.

Put hours and hours into the writing.  You’ll be spending more time taking action than you could ever visualize with presence of mind for.  At a certain point with visualization you’re just sitting there daydreaming or in misery that you can’t do anything else to get what you want.  That is again why the action of blogging is better than the action of playing to win the lottery.

And as I started with in the beginning, I believe it is possible to earn a million dollars a year off of one’s blog.  Sure that’s a big goal, but you can’t get big without big goals.  Besides even if you fall short you’ll still have made SOME money off your blog, and some is better than none.  I shot for a jackpot win and didn’t get it, but I did win $50 off of a dollar scratch off ticket.  I imagine your chances of making a lot more than $50 off blogging are better than making it off playing the lottery.  And if you do have the big goal you have the potential to earn as much as you could win.

This is why blogging is better than playing the lottery.

I hope this has inspired you to blog harder than you play the lottery.  I know the change has been good for me and I hope that this serves you as well.

Getting Paid, And Knowing Your Going To Get The Sale

That’s the beauty of an hourly sales job.  They pay you by the hour, whether you sell or not, and you do the work.  Sure it may not pay as much as a commission sales job, but that’s also harder to do.

When the company has invested in you, the sale comes naturally.  You find your people.  They will talk to you.  They will have you a little longer than most of the people you talk to.  You find them a few times, maybe if your lucky 4, throughout the day.  I try to make their day a little better.  Sometimes it’s like it’s working.

All I know is that I haven’t even been working there 2 years and I’m already doing what the owner was doing.  Food presentations.  Lunch and learns.

And I really think I gave a great presentation at my last meeting.  It was with a dozen people and I did 5 minutes.  I almost want to do longer.  Really get my presentation skills up there with the best of them.  I made my audience laugh a couple of times, and at one point I had to stop to answer a question from the audience.

She wanted to know if her sandwich came on lettuce instead of bread, to which she found the answer was yes.  She didn’t eat bread.  She’s a special customer and we cater to her.  God help the people who work there when the special orders come in.

It really is work fulfilling orders.  There’s a lot that goes on with it that the customer might not be thinking of.  If I had a longer presentation i would fill them in on things.  Things like the torch.

The torch is used to glaze the hams and turkeys, and the people, when they are using the torches  are really sweating.  That’s work.  I did it for a little while, but I really wasn’t any good at it, and I got a terrible blister on my left hand from holding the torch.  They found other things for me to do, but they use those things in our stores… it’s amazing what they do to the meat!  Fire and sugar and spice, down into the meat.  Makes for a great flavor.  It’s special to me and it’s what I’m selling.  It’s a good product.

People love it.  They will stand in line for it for an hour over the holidays.  Three times a year, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, it’s all hands on deck.  They stand in line, and we work, and they get their hams, and we get their company, and their money.  It’s a fine place if you like ham or turkey, or even vegetarian if you eat that way.  We do it all.

So if you ever need ham, I’m your man.

Especially if your reading this from Baltimore, MD, I love you.  Just reach out to me on the contact page, and maybe we could set up a deal.

Because that’s really what I’ve been doing, is working on becoming a great sales success…

That’s not to say this thing with the lottery is over.  Really it’s only just begun.  I won $50 yesterday, and $1 today.  I did not win the Mega Millions jackpot, even though after I won $50 on the scratch off, I bought 2 tickets for the Mega Millions.

The point is I must have spent over 5 years visualizing for the lottery win, and having dreams about it happening, and did not win the jackpot.

I just thought that the time I could spend visualizing winning the lottery I spend on making my job work.  What’s the worst that could happen if I did that?  It’s either going to work out, or it’s not.  The visualizing isn’t going to hurt anything.  Or will it?

Should I just leave it alone and try not to think about it?  Should I occupy my time with doing housework or reading?  The answer to these questions must come from within me.  I say onward, and lifeward.  If that means visualizing yourself getting a big deal, even though it makes your symptoms worse, keep visualizing getting a big deal.  When you get it, it might even come as a surprise you’ve waited so long for it to come.

And it will come.  You’ve done the work.  You wear the sales uniform.  They have your phone number.  All it is is dropping the information off with the secretary.  I don’t actually talk to the people in charge of doing the fundraising.  It would be good if I could meet those people right there when I’m giving out the information.  They however are not in, so I have to work with the secretary.  They usually like me to just say hello, drop off the information and leave.  I don’t stay very long, unless they let me.

What I should say to them is I’ll give them $100 if they don’t buy what I’m about to sell them.  I heard that on a Tim Ferriss podcast.  There was a guy who sold credit card processing on transparency, and service and outsold everyone else in the company.  That’s what he would say to them when he walked in the door, he said he would always have their attention.

I don’t know if I would say that to someone in a school, which is what I’m focusing on this month of August 2017.   But that might be a good line for a business person.

The point is, I don’t visualize for the lottery, I visualize for great sales success.  What it looks like so far is reading and journaling.  And I want to get this work done for my family.  I have a son, and a daughter.  I have reasons to work.  Not to say you can’t have reasons to work if you don’t have kids.  I’m saying that having kids can’t hurt your reasons to work.

Those are my sentiments for this day, I hope that your days are great, and that you have many more ahead of you,

What I Learned By Not Winning The Lottery Last Night

The jackpot was at 100 million again.  That’s one of my numbers.  I play the most when it’s at 100 million.  And for the really big jackpots.  I have a bill made out for 100,000,000.00 dollars.  My mom gave me a bill for one million and I added two zeros on the end with a black marker.  Because that was how much I wanted.  I still play the lottery even when it’s not at 100 million so it must not mean that much.  I would be happy with any size jackpot.

To be one of the few who win big.  There have only been about 9 jackpot winners this year for the Powerball.  That’s less than one a month.  But if you think about it almost one a month is a lot.  That’s a lot of people winning millions of dollars.  The question I asked myself this morning, after I had checked to see if I won… was how can I create the energy that manifests a jackpot win?

I feel as though it’s coming to me right now.  I felt that way for the jackpot last night.  I still feel that way this morning after I didn’t win.  I feel like it’s coming to me.  It being a jackpot win.

I have thought about honing my powers and becoming the first person in history to win multiple jackpots.  Like 3.  Some would say that it’s not possible.  But I say anything is possible.  Give or take I probably have 68 years left.  That would be plenty of time to win three jackpots.  We could live in a 7 million dollar house.  The one I saw that is the most expensive house in our area.  A nice area.  And the house has a pool!

But really all we need is about a 500,000 dollar house.  That would suit us nicely.  Not too expensive but expensive enough to give us the room we need for our family.  And big enough to throw a party for our friends.

That’s probably what I would do with the first jackpot.  Buy a 500,000 dollar home for my family.

But really I didn’t win the 100 million dollar jackpot and my focus should get back to work.  I have to improve this holiday season… Christmas is right around the corner only 10 days away and I’m going to be working a lot of hours.  I love the paycheck.  But I do it for more than just a paycheck.  I do it to work the cigarettes off… to keep my sanity… to love what I do… to interact with different people…. to be a part of the team…. and bearing repeating to get PAID!

And I would never tell the people I work with this but my job is really… easy.  It’s easy working those long days when your on the road for most of it.  Just drive and deliver.  Get back, load up… drive and deliver.  It’s simple.  It’s an easy job.  There are some hard jobs there and I have a lot of respect for the people that do them.  And like lifting heavy boxes for hours, they probably think it’s not that bad.  Good exercise.  A man’s job.  Men mostly do this job.  It’s like glazing the hams.  You have to hold a torch in one hand and a can of sugar in the other.  You coat the ham with sugar and then take the flame over the sugar.  I tried to do that stuff but I couldn’t get the hang of it so they made me a delivery driver instead.

That and I do prep work for the store.  Make salads, ham salad, turkey salad, chicken salad, tuna salad.  Slice the ham and portion it out for sandwiches, I do that too.  Clean the store, I do that.  I do a lot around the store to keep it running smoothly and improving.  I have asked myself the question how can I improve my value to the company by 15%.  The answer I came up with was to sell it.  I would make money and be providing more value to the company by being a healthy salesperson.

I didn’t make any sales for the Thanksgiving holiday and it looks like I’m not going to get back out there before Christmas so so far I haven’t been productive.  But I have a burning desire to become productive.  It’s like the lottery, and winning the jackpot.  It’s work and something I love to do.  And I have that burning desire for outstanding success.

But I have the day off so I do laundry…. my wife asked me to put my sons Christmas present together, a bike, so I’m going to do that.  I should get to the gym today.  I should make a commitment to get to the gym today.  I pay for the membership…  I want to use it.  To get healthier.  And I really have to stop smoking.  I just can’t afford it.  It’s killing my health, it’s killing my bank account, the smoking lifestyle is bad for kids.  And I have two of them.  I’ve got to learn discipline and take control of my life.  I’m out of control being 14,100 dollars in debt.  I have to pay my card off.  I must have a zero balance.  And the only way that’s going to happen is if I stop spending my money on garbage.

But smoking does relax me.  It has consquences though.  And I’ve been thinking about those consequences and the voices have been talking about bad things that could happen for I don’t know how long.  I want to embrace Tony Robbins’ acyronim CANI!… constant and never ending improvement.  And I could turn my life around if I could change my lifestyle.  I could get out of debt and give more money to my family.  That’s probably the biggest challenge I’m facing right now.  Quitting smoking.

So all this is what I’m thinking about on the day I didn’t win the 100 million.  Again.  I still believe I’m a jackpot winner.  And I still think it’s on it’s way to me.  But winning can wait for another time.  I have work to focus on, and improving along this holiday.  What I know is that family is the most important thing.  My dad taught me that after several of my own mistakes.

For now I bid you good day.  Have a great day.  May it be filled to the brim with countless blessings for you, yours, and the entire world.  Thanks for reading.  Take care.
