Forming Healthy Addictions for Business Success

by admin, No Comments »

titleForming Healthy Addictions for Business SuccessHealthy addictions make it easier to go through each day and make sure that you are taking care of what is importantin your life and can help you to be successful in your business

 We are going to touch on several different areas in your life that healthy addictions could be very beneficial to you.

You may have more areas on your list and that is great, here is a short list we made.








 And here are the ways that forming healthy addictions in these areas will improve the quality of your life and make you more successful in your business.

Fitness:  This one doesn’t take a brain to figure out because everyone one knows that you just feel better when you have an elevated fitness level and that you are taking care of your body.  How do you form healthy addictions in this area?  Love what you do for exercise.  This may send you on a search but by trying a wide variety of activities you may find something that you would have never tried.  Your body will start to rely on this physical activity and eventually start to crave it.  Can you imagine what an elevated IQ could do for your business? That is what exercise can do for you.

Nutrition:  So vital to our health but so often overlooked.  Even as a fitness professional for many years I had to admit that nutrition is more important to health than Exercise.  That does not minimize the importance of exercise but we all need to realize that the nutrition is the fuel for the physical activity.  Without the proper fuel then we are not working up to our full capabilities.  The first thing to start forming the healthy addictions in this area is to drive right by the drive through window.  Shop the perimeter in the grocery store with just a few exceptions such as jarred organic spaghetti sauce because it can be used for so many different things but watch the sodium.  Good nutrition makes for clearer thinking.

Business: This is where the healthy addictions start to stack up.  Although healthy addictions related directly to your business are important, the stacking of the healthy addictions start to come into play here.  Healthy addictions in fitness will benefit you with renewed energy, vitality, clear thinking and overall well being.  Healthy addictions in nutrition will allow you to feel better and less sluggish, stay in better shape, lower cholesterol and other artery blocking conditions allowing more blood flow to your brain and heart.  Now I think you are starting to see how this will set you up for business success.

In your actual business start your healthy addictions in time management first because that will allow you to be more productive right off the bat.  Form the healthy addiction of not letting things take you off your course, don’t answer the phone or messages until it is convenient for you.

Travel:  Healthy addictions stack up on this one as well.  If you have healthy fitness addictions maintain them when you travel, modifying them if needed.  Don’t change your healthy nutritional habits when you travel because chances are you will have a stomach ailment or just generally won’t feel that well so these are very important addictions to maintain.  If you take supplements (everyone should) don’t stop just because you are traveling because that is when you need them the most.  Form healthy addictions like washing your hands often and you will stay healthier when traveling.  A sick person is not an effective person it is of utmost importance to stay well and on top of your game expecially in business.

Hobbies:  Healthy addictions like cleanliness comes into play here, we have seen our share of totally trashed “hobby” rooms.  Keep the hobby fun and clutter free, be at the top of your game in your fitness, nutrition and business healthy addictions.  Healthy business addictions are important here because you need some cash in order to have a hobby because I haven’t seen many free ones.  Hobbies are important all in them self because they promote pleasure and overall health.

Philanthropy:  Stay ahead of the game with healthy business, fitness, nutritional, and travel addictions when it comes to the philanthropic activities that you enjoy.  All of these will come into play with clearer thinking, better decision making, ability to travel with little disturbance, feeling better due to a well balanced diet with supplemental support.  Good decisions need to be made on what organizations we choose to support so this is very important to us.

 Entrepreneurial:  For the same reasons that are important for Philanthropy, healthy addictions are important to being an entrepreneur.  You have to be quick to spot an opportunity and find a way to get it done, we find it helps to be in top physical shape so we have formed our healthy fitness and nutritional addictions, they are habits, they are a part of the way we live our daily lives.

If you have any Healthy Addictions we would love to hear about them and how they benefit you in your life..

Google boots the “scumbag” Marketers

titleGoogle boots the scumbag Marketers

Vultures are Circling

What is This?

 That’s what I sat there and asked myself as I looked at my computer screen.

 I can almost understand where Google is coming from at this moment.

 A moment ago I thought that Google was, well I can’t repeat that part of my conversation, but now I am starting to understand the kind of scum they kicked off their sight.

 This is not only a small “venting” it is a warning for everyone out there on the Internet.

 Have you been noticing lately a huge shift towards social media in the marketing world and let’s face it, everyone knows why.  It’s because Google has put a stop to the “scum-bag” marketing ploys that are (or should I say were) found there.

 In essence they cracked down on anyone marketing anything good or bad on the Internet and really just started enforcing the rules that were in place all along.  The government helped that with the FTC swooping in to “oversee” things.

 I can imagine that revenue must be down at Google as they slap and suspend some very lucrative marketers.

 Looking in the other direction, the people that were being very lucrative have their income stripped down so they go on the “prowl” to fine avenues to get the word out and social media is like a baby bird in the nest

 Advertising is pretty tight on the sights but really anyone can post anything they want and that is when things become shaky.

 What happens when it gets scummy? Some of these so called marketers were in reality just “schemers” looking for easy prey.

 They have found ways to get to your friends and it isn’t in a very social way.

When you have a sight called Face Book you would think you have friends there.   You need to be careful who you consider a friend even on face book.

 I will be checking out the friend requests coming through more carefully in the future after experiencing someone “friending” me and then friending my friends.

 This person watched and listened and actually participated in conversations with me, decided which friends they would target in those conversations.

 Then that person blocked me so that I couldn’t see them marketing my friends, arranging phone calls and prospecting them with things they learned through our conversations.

We are marketers as well,  however we seldom market on our social sights except to give information that we want to share.  We are not against telling someone what we do and getting them involved if they are interested, we wouldn’t be very good business people if we didn’t do that.

So you see, everyone is NOT your friend and nor should you think they are.  Be watchful because the scum is coming to the surface in different places and you never know where that might be.

I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before they get the pay per click figured out and start to market that way.  With the baby birds still in the nest back at face book, it makes for an easy meal so I really don’t think they will go away any time soon.

I guess the old saying goes, “one bad apple spoiled it for everyone” so hopefully the good guys will get it figured out too because there is a lot of good and the Internet can be a benefit but not when the “spammy-scammers” are on the prowl.

Word to the wise, check out the info page of any friend requests you get and if there is anything there you don’t like, then it looks like you can’t be friends.


Gaining Information for your Business Today

by admin, 2 Comments »

How well informed are you on the Economy? What are the sources of
Information that you turn to in order To be informed?

Our education here is in terrible shape and there is a reason for that.
It doesn’t look to be getting any better

When you reveal your information source you may say the newspaper or the Evening news and you aren’t alone. It is easily digested and predictably Watered down.

Although we enjoy freedom of the Press in our constitution what does
That really mean?

The press has the freedom to print what they see fit, however many outlets have Much to loose if they say too much and that is how many of us come about getting much of our information.

It doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to Figure out that we don’t hear the
Entire truth of what is happening in the Economy by the media.

Even George Carlin can see what is going on and he is brave enough to
State the facts the way he sees them and how many others see the facts as well.

Check him out.
Disclaimer: George sometimes uses foul language to get his point across and he does so in this video. I don’t want to offend anyone so please skip the video if there are young kids or if you would be offended.

We have been in search of the truth and we believe that is what we have
Received and it hasn’t been from traditional media and information

We have received our information from experts that are not tied to the media outlets.  Experts that are sharing their information in hopes that some of us will be spared the economic crisis that is forthcoming.

You see, now is the time to make your decision. You may decide to just “ride this bad economy out” and see where it takes you.

If you are anything like us you have made the decision to be in the drivers seat and be a part of the well informed people that will have tremendous wealth transferred TO them rather than AWAY from them.

We will not settle for the information that is being spouted out by the media, we dig deeper and you can too.

We all Deserve the hear the truth, You deserve to know how to protect what you have now and how to build on that in the Future.

Finding the right sources for the information that you gather is imperative to your future.

The Possibilities of a Home Based Business

by admin, 3 Comments »

Remember What we Think about We Bring About.  The person with positive thinking will ALWAYS get more done because things will happen easier while they focus on the possibilities. It’s all in your frame of mind and it is a choice that all of us make.  We all need to understand that mind set really does matter.

Possibilities are what makes things happen, if things were impossible why would anyone try?  It is in our nature to learn and grow, to seek knowledge and the truth,  possibilities are what keep us going and growing.  Possibilities of learning things as yet unknown and the excitement and satisfaction that might bring.

The possibility of being enriched beyond our wildest imagination or the possibility of finding a cure for cancer.  That in which we all strive and reach for, to get to the pinnacle of OUR universe and all of the possibilities that would open from that point.

I think of all of the possibilities fashioned as a flower, as one possibility becomes a reality that reality actually opens up more possibilites like the delecate petals that unfurl as we watch a blossom open to the sun.

Who’s Watching Your Back inYour Business?

titleWhos Watching Your Back inYour Business?

You Have to be a fighter

We all seem to be getting used to the bad economy we are experiencing, we like comparing our self to others that aren’t doing as well as we are, when in reality we aren’t much better.  Why this comparison should make anyone feel better about their own circumstances is really beyond me.

The states are all attempting to balance their budget and they are coming up with new tactics to raise funds.

Have you talked to anyone lately who has been pulled over and not ticketed? I sure haven’t, in fact the cops right now are looking for infractions to site the public on.  They pull you over for one thing and add on what ever they can before they let you go.

I recently noticed that speed limits signs had been changed near our home, they must have changed them in the middle of the night because it was that quick.  Along with the change in the speed came the radar patrol to catch the people doing the speed they have gone since there was speed limits.  No warnings, just citations.

Is this what our local governments have planned to raise funds?

It’s already bad enough that they want to eliminate physical education completely from our schools, every fee has increased at local government levels.  We used to be builders and in one year the permit for a single family home went from $14,000 to $23,000 and the government is hollering for affordable housing when it is the very government that is making housing un-affordable, not that it really matters because in the month of May new home purchases plunged 33%  to an all time low.

That’s how it goes in the big city.

I was interested to open a news paper for a small town in Central Oregon and find all sorts of ways that the city is trying to help the residents that have been hit pretty severely by the recession, They have been hit so hard that people are moving away.  The city is forgiving parking tickets (with certain criteria)  and they are actually LOWERING fees.

I realize it is small but it is a start.  Our local governments will have to realize you can’t squeeze blood from a turnup.  People are stretched to their limits right now and many are to the point of breakingWe keep hearing that the economy is improving but the hard cold facts are that it sure doesn’t feel like it.

Many people are suffering and now it seems that many of them will be receiving their last unemployment check, so what is next for them?

We asked that question several years ago and there were no easy answers.  The words that kept coming to us were re-invent yourself, or undergo transformation and that was all very sound advise but with no direction.

It doesn’t take very long for a person to realize that we have the choice to go in the direction that we want, it is selecting the direction that can be difficult. To find out about our greatest gift, Freedom of Choice click on the link.

Where do you see yourself in five years?  What do you want to be doing and how are you going to get to that point? These are the questions that will help you with your direction.

That is where the work begins.

Since our transformation we have found that in order to get what you want you need to put in the work, there is no other way, no short cuts but in the end the rewards are greater than what you set out to get. 

What that means is that we set our goals and where we wanted to be and because we were willing to work hard, step out of our comfort zone and give up a few things we were able to accomplish so much more and go beyond the goals we had set and this is possible for anyone to do.

With the right leaders to show you the way, you can achieve your goals if you are determined to never stop until you achieve them.

How to Gain Wisdom and Success

titleHow to Gain Wisdom and Success

Seek Wisdom

In order to have the life you want it is necessary to seek wisdom and knowledge. Without these then there is no growth can be attained.

Wisdom does not come in the form of  the evening news. Wisdom comes from the ability to watch, listen and experience and to take note of each sensory. The media outlets thrive on negative junk that is not necessarily true.

Reading and listening to books and recordings that will bring about positive change in your life and help you to understand other people that is really the only way to truely be informed of our surrounding environment.   This is the wisdom that will make your life fulfilling and worth living.

Making decisions and moving forward. You can not change the past but you can sure improve your future by making a decision to change.

Select your friends with care, you are who your friends are. Their opinions and habits are shared with you. Look around, if your friends are  making poor decisions, that will reflect on you because of your association with that person.

Choose to associate with people who you admire and respect. If you hang with a Duck you will be destined to always be looking for a hand out. If you hang with eagles you will learn to soar.

 You can only draw conclusions from your own experience if you don’t counsil with others, when you counsel with the wise you will include their experience and that could open up a whole new world to you.

If you are the smartest and most fit person in your group of peers, then you need to add some people that are “better” than you, more fit, wealthier, etc. because these are the people that will make you reach higher and want to do more in life.  That you will want to emulate and they have oppinions that matter.

Be wise and serve others, then you will realize a satisfaction that can’t be described. People who serve are popular and are wealthy beyond our monetary standards. As you serve others, their wisdom will be shared with you. The person that serves the most grows the fastest and learns the most.

Develop a servants heart and do not be distressed when you need help and you are alone, but be thankful when you can help. Give a helping hand with no expectations of ever receiving anything in return.

Have a servants heart

Seek counsel of the wise

Choose your friends carefully

Just by doing these three simple things and making a decision to change you can transform your life into a life you could only dream of.

In times of distress life just seems like it is going to be a very long ride. Seeking change and transforming the way you think will cause you to consider that maybe  times-a-wasting and life is too short. We only have so much time and wasting one minute of it is a dirty shame. Our clocks start ticking the moment we are born.


Are You Waiting For That Perfect Moment?

titleAre You Waiting For That Perfect Moment?

Where IS the perfect Moment?

If you are waiting for the “perfect moment” then you might be waiting for a while. 

So what’s the big deal about a perfect moment?  Is there really such a thing?

 If you believe that nothing is random and that things happen in their own good time then how could there be such a thing as a perfect moment?

I say there is but it isn’t the type of “perfect Moment” that people wait for and never find.  I have had 3 perfect moments in my life, the births of my daughter and son and when I married my soul mate.

 Waiting for a perfect moment is usually a sign that someone is procrastinating.  They know what needs to be done but they need to wait until the time is perfect or right.

 If you aren’t “Sherlock Holmes” then you might not detect when the time is perfect and then that time would come and go and you would have missed out and never really even know.

 Now Timing, there is something that can really get you somewhere.

 I suppose waiting for the perfect time may determine that you might be waiting for something to happen and when it happens you might miss it.

 Whereas timing is everything, timing is when you are in the right place at the right time.  The key is not to be in the right place at the right time and be waiting for the perfect moment.

 Being in the right place at the right time is an undetermined amount of time; you don’t know how long that timing will last.  I can guarantee that in most every circumstance when it comes to timing the timing is there for more than just a moment.

 That doesn’t mean you have days and weeks to make a decision, you need to make quick decisions and move on them.  What it does mean is that you will have more than a perfect moment to recognize when timing is in your favor.

 Many times something will be put in front us and we don’t really see it at first, if we have the luck of timing then things come together to give us clues.  These are some things that will help you recognize when timing is on your side.

 Be aware

Be present

Always listen and watch

Be open to possibilities

Do not fear change

Don’t let people opinion alter your decision

Never “wait” always take action

 If you do these 7 things you will have more of chance of recognizing when the timing comes together and you won’t pass it by waiting for the perfect moment.

Doing Business On YOUR Terms

by admin, 2 Comments »

titleDoing Business On YOUR TermsHow many times do you let people give their opinion and it changes your mind like a detour in a road?

 Here’s the thing, we plan and we have dreams.  We do our best to go down the path that will take us to where we want to go.  It is hard enough to get to that place for some of us.

 But when we finally do figure it all out we are excited and we share our excitement with others.  This is where the issues come in.

 We, all of us as humans have opinions.  Our opinions are formed from the things in our lives that we have experienced.  We have all had different experiences: that is part of what makes us all different.

 Our Experiences have brought us to a point that we are, here with our opinion, just waiting to encroach on someone else’s dream.

 So do you do things on your own terms or do you let others opinions put up a road block on the road to your dreams?

 It is important to have a clear picture of what you want to achieve.  With this vision and your own determination you will get to your destination what ever that may be.  Your destination might not be the place on the map that you first selected but you have arrived there with tweaks to your plan.

 If you listen to others and let them influence your decision you might not ever get to that spot. 

 People want to “save” you from failure and so they share their opinions. 

 Failure is part of the growing process and if you skip steps on the way you will have to experience those failures later.   Remember when you were a kid and you got “grounded”?  If given half a choice wouldn’t you have rather been spanked and then had your freedom back the next day?  I know I would.

 The reason I mention this is because when someone “saves” you from failure it works like being grounded.  The failure (lesson) is out there, it’s like being grounded because before the lesson is learned you can’t fly.  You needent worry, the failure (lesson) is there waiting to “spank” you.

 Remember to set your goals and visit them each day, tweak them if need be.

 Create a path that you are going to follow and a system that you are going to implement.

 Be willing to fail more than one time, learn from the failure and move on.

 No person is always 100% successful, no matter how great the person.

 Dream big, nothing is out of reach if you believe.

 Stick to these principles and do things on your own terms and your life will be fulfilling, meaningful and a joy to live.

You have been given the greatest gift.
