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.
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.
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.
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.
