And isn’t that all of us… Those who want to improve.
I say the way to improvement is to read books and keep a journal, and most importantly to experience everyday life.
Right now I work hourly and collect my pay. I’m moving up and becoming a salesperson, and that’s great but as Jim Rohn put it “Work harder on yourself than you do at your job”.
So that’s what I do. I read and write and keep notes. It’s hard to put into words how that learning can help you, but I believe it does. You just have to keep the faith. Your learning will help you. So that’s what I do, I learn.
But as they say, experience is the best teacher. And I get experience at my hourly job. So that is my best teacher right now. I hope that this blog becomes my best teacher and that I have an impact on millions of people, but that is yet to come. Right now the best I can do is work hourly and collect my pay, and learn and read and write in my free time. So that’s what I do. It’s simple really, do the thing and you will have the power, so Ralph Waldo Emerson says.
The value here is to tell you, you can do it! You can be a success at your hourly job and you can be a success writing a blog. It can be done! And you can do it too! You just have to try and try harder and work towards your dreams. I don’t know that I will ever make a million dollars off of one of my ebooks, but I can try! I can write it and let the words do the work for me! And you can do it too! You just have to try! And like my boss says at my hourly job, you have to do MORE than just try! You have to DO IT! So that’s my plan, and that’s what I’m doing right now as your reading this, I’m making it happen.
And you can do it too! Be inspired to take action in your life and become a success in whatever your doing. Whether that be working your hourly job, whether that be becoming a success in sales, whether that be becoming a success with your blog and ebook, I’m here to help you. I want you to succeed. Take your coffee and drink it, and feel good that your in good company that is really interested in your success.
And if you really want to go over the top, and become a public speaker, then make a video and put it on your blog. That’s one thing I learned from going “all in” at the Empower Network. Make videos and put them on your blog. You’ll learn from them and they will make you into a good public speaker. You may not please everybody from the start, in fact you may have a very rocky road, but you will learn and you will become better. So just do it. You will have the power. I trust you. I want you to learn. Become better, and have a better impact on the world. You can do it!
Right now I’m writing this and I’ve had a couple of beers and now I’m drinking a glass of wine. I’m also struggling with quitting cigarettes. Sometimes they make me feel great, other times they make me feel terrible. But I figure that with enough income I can live whatever lifestyle I want, whether that be a lifestyle of drinking and smoking or not. I would be able to do it if I made enough money. So I’ve got to make more money if I want to drink and smoke. Otherwise, I’ll have to quit and just work my hourly job and pay my bills. Pay my bills over time and get debt free. That’s my ticket, or my ticket is to write this blog, add value to a massive number of people and then make my money that way. Chances are I would make a lot more money that way than just working an hourly job. So I’m going for it. And I want you to know that if your doing it too, I’m in it with you. I’m in it for the long haul. I know success doesn’t happen overnight, so I’m willing to work for it. And work hard I will. It just takes time. So time I will give it. And I know that if I keep learning, and keep working on my blog, that if I keep adding value, people will be attracted to me and want to buy things from me. That’s my ticket and that’s what I’m working towards. I hope the same for you.
Because with the age of the internet, anything is possible. Yes the climate is getting warmer and it’s nice but it’s also scary… are we effecting things in a way we can’t reverse? Are we doing something wrong as a whole? All I know is that you can only do what YOU can do, and you can’t put the whole of society on your shoulders and say it’s my fault. Because it’s not, it’s just our evolution. And if our evolution is to destroy our planet and everything in it, then so be it. We’ve had a good run and can’t expect to live forever. On the other hand we can learn to improve and become better, which is what I’m striving towards. We can eat less meat, smoke less cigarettes, drink less wine, and live a better life. That’s what I say, become better.
“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better” -Jim Rohn
Because that’s what you’ve got to do, and by God we will do it. We will become better, we will succeed. We will be the best versions of ourselves. And that’s what this website is about. It’s about improving people’s lives. It’s about making the best of what we have. It’s about taking that best of what we have and making it better. It’s about taking more from life than life has initially given you. And it’s about giving. It’s about giving more of yourself, and doing everything you can to have an impact on people in a positive way. To influence people to TAKE ACTION and make positive change in their lives. Please TAKE ACTION NOW.
It’s all about making your life better. If that means doing the dishes, then do the dishes. If you have laundry to do, do the laundry. If you have to take the trash out, don’t hesitate or wait, take the trash out now. If it means you have to go to work and do your hourly job, then go to work on time and do your hourly job. If it means you have to write a blog post to inspire the world, the write the God blessed blog post that is going to inspire the world. Just do the thing. You will be happy you did. You will leave a legacy for the rest of the world to know who you were and what you stood for. I just went on a walk today and this is what I found.
I was thinking about my values because I want to live a value based lifestyle. I want my values to guide my actions. I don’t want to act on my impulses anymore. So I wanted to think of the top 4 values in my life. This is what I came up with:
I think these are good values to live by and want to live by them myself. So that means little to no smoking, and continuing self education until I succeed.
These are just the values I want to live by, you can come up with your own. You may want adventure, freedom, security, or whatever. There are alot of values you could come up with, you have to choose your own. I just thought that for me, this was a good starting point.
The point here is you’ve got to read good books on personal development to get these kinds of lessons. You’ve got to think and keep a journal so you can write down your own list of values and know what they are so you can live by them. And not just your values, but how you can work hourly, how you can sell, and how you can blog… and how you can write ebooks. Because that’s what were after right? We want to make a million dollars selling our first ebook. And God help me I will show you the way. I’ve just got to do it first. But I believe it can be done, and I’m here to be a leading learner, and show you my results as I go. Right now, I’m getting comments and getting twitter followers. I know that anyone else can do the same. Now I’m set on selling an ebook and making millions of dollars, and when that happens the blog posts I make will be of a different tune. For now, they are for inspiration, they are for your enlightenment, they are for your pleasure. As I think they will be after I make my first million. And trust me, I will make a million dollars on the internet, or much much more. It’s coming the time when this is going to happen. Trust me, I’m going to make it happen. Just wait and see. Like Jack White said in his “ball and a biscuit” song…. I’m the seventh son, and you might not care about me now, but you will by the time I’m done.
So I leave you with that.
Take care of yourself, and good luck in life,
