Recently I saw a video on Facebook berating people in Mississippi who, the author claimed to be stupid because they voted for President Trump. The video pinpointed people who live in poverty. There are a lot of people living in poverty in this country. In fact, all over the world. It doesn’t make them stupid. 01.06.17difference

It’s my belief that people who berate others are very insecure in who they are. It would seem that they have to make others feel bad so that they can feel better. There is no common sense or sense of decency in that.

It’s time for people to wake up. If we’re not moving forward as a species, we’re moving backwards. Life is not static.

Have a blessed and beautiful day!

 

 

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Were You Raised with An Entrepreneurial Spirit?

Cat-Looking-in-MirrorIf you can’t seem to get ahead or make progress with your business because you lack an entrepreneurial spirit of giving, it may be time to assess how you were brought up. Many parents raise their children to be giving, while others are intent on having their children focus on earning money.

The reality is – you need a balance of both. Children who were raised to give with a free spirit may have difficulty grasping the importance of receiving money for what they do – especially those who offer advice and guidance, as well as valuable products.

When you have an entrepreneurial mindset, you strive to change yours and others’ lives for the better. You seek change, rather than sitting back waiting for things to happen. Giving is an important part of the entrepreneurial spirit, but it should also enhance the growth of the entrepreneur rather than just the person being helped. It’s a two-way street!

A negative mindset will absolutely ruin your chances of being a successful entrepreneur. Remaining positive and enthusiastic are both important to having others look up to you as a leader and a trusted advisor. Entrepreneurs are empowered and are capable of teaching others to become empowered.

A sense of being worthy of success is also important to the entrepreneurial spirit. Giving away all of your advice and guidance information for free doesn’t enhance an entrepreneur’s path to success at all – in fact, it will hinder your progress.

If you don’t think your advice is worthy of payment, no one else will. This attitude can’t be taught, but can certainly be developed over time. By fostering passion and enthusiasm for what you do, the entrepreneurial spirit will grow and you will prosper as a result.

Potential customers sense the passion and enthusiasm in your voice and in the helpful information that you offer. Even if a person comes into their relationship with you skeptical at first, they sense your conviction and will react by becoming a loyal customer.

Entrepreneurs are naturally optimistic and tend to enjoy life to the fullest. They take risks and push past the lines where others have stopped. Even though you may not feel you’ve developed a true entrepreneurial spirit over time, you can begin now to turn the tables and eventually consider yourself worthy of all good things that come your way.

What’s Sucking Up Your Time?

Do You Know What’s Sucking Up Your Time?

clock-blogWe live in hectic times and our most precious commodity is and always will be time. You can’t grow more of it and when it’s gone you can’t get it back.

How often do you tell yourself that you can’t do what you want to do because you don’t have the time? We all do it. We want to live with more purpose, volunteer, or simply spend more quality time with our family and friends, but there just isn’t enough time to do it.

The cold hard truth is that there is plenty of time. It’s simply a matter of prioritizing what you spend it on and cutting out some of the things that suck up your time. We all have them and, while the specifics may be different from person to person, the solution is the same for everyone. Find out where you spend your time and then make educated decisions on what’s important and what isn’t.

One of the best tools for figuring out exactly where you’re spending your time is a time journal. This can be a simple little notebook, a stack of scrap paper, an Evernote doc on your phone, or a spreadsheet on your computer.

Next start writing down what you’re doing every 15 minutes from the time you get up to the time you go to sleep. Keep this up for about a week and see what you come up with.

Reviewing your time log can be a real eye opening experience!

You may discover that you spent a lot more time on the computer doing busy work, or surfing the web than you realize. Or maybe you had no idea that you spent an average of four hours a night watching TV, or 2 hours per day commuting to and from work. In other words, you’ll start to recognize patterns of behavior and where you tend to spend your time.

While there are quite a few areas that we don’t have a lot of control over (you have to show up for work or school, make time for personal hygiene, and get some sleep), there are quite a few hours in each day that we can fill however we like.

Keeping a time log for a week or two provides you with the information you need to be able to make educated and conscious choices about how to spend that time. That in turn allows you to live more purposefully, no matter what your goals and aspirations are. Sometimes, you want to sleep in, spend the day reading or playing video games, or simply daydream and that’s ok. It’s a great way to unwind, distress, and recharge. On other days, you may choose do so something more active or social.

The point is that when you become aware of how and where you’re spending your time, you have more control and can be more intentional with how you spent it.

How to control your own economy and have more time

I truly hope that your new year is starting out with all the good stuff that life brings!

Everyone who follows my blog and my other social media outlets knows that I’m not a purveyor of negative news and I don’t plan to start now. It’s just that there are some big changes heading our way, not just here in the U.S., but all throughout our environment, all over this planet.

The Earth herself is changing and so are we. We are all energy … and there are waves of energy hitting our planet now that are huge. This energy has been with us for a while and is increasing at this time. Have you felt out of sorts lately? Many people I speak with are feeling it. In fact, it affected how lots of us felt about this past Christmas. This particular holiday, even more so than others, is all about buy, buy, buy. I just can’t get into that mode anymore. Most of my friends said the same thing. The majority of us realize that the buy, buy, buy mentality is over. Yeah, it’s great to give gifts but let it be because you think that gift will make someone feel good, not because the pressure of the holiday season is upon you. My facebook news feed was filled with wishes of love for family and friends, and not one mentioned what they “got” for Christmas. It was truly wonderful.

But back to the changes. Whatever happens, be it earth changes, political structures, monetary impacts, try not to be in fear. Maybe nothing will happen of a huge consequence. I hope not. That’s all I can say. Just know that you have a force that is bigger and walks beside you … always. Trust in that. Trust in your powers of highest discernment and assist others to do the same.

Do I believe in being prepared with extra water, food, and life’s necessities? Absolutely!

God bless you. Namaste’

I found this image on an alternative media site that I frequently read. As you may know, I don’t get my news from the mainstream media. It’s rigged to keep the populace in fear. I believe we need to draw our own conclusions by listening to our hearts – not our TV’s. Our intuition will never steer us in the wrong direction.

I feel like humanity is waking up to the truth of who we really are. We are powerful and very brave for being here now on this planet; our beautiful blue orb which we are responsible for maintaining. WE are the ones we’ve been waiting for. I don’t believe anyone is coming to SAVE us. We have to save ourselves. No longer can we say “oh, let someone else take care of that.” Apathy will not work anymore. Action is required now for our very survival and the survival of our planet. What action will you take to make a difference; to spread the truth; to bring more light and love into the collective consciousness?

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
