It's all up to you
« on: April 21, 2011, 02:26:29 AM »
Yeah, pretty offbeat and extreme I know, but this IS the kind of world we're living in.
The same principle applies to starting a business online as you'll see below.


Some people just seem to have been born lucky...

  • A nice stable home to grow up in.
  • Lot's of friends, & a happy extended family.
  • They received plenty of love & attention so they grow up happy and well adjusted.
  • Because of good guidance they've made good choices, avoided trouble, and turned out pretty good.

A lot of these people have good hearts too.
They're quite generous with those less fortunate, and live their lives adhering to good, old-fashioned values.
And, they've set the bar high for themselves; never would they even think of compromising their integrity.

That's not luck though, that's how it should be.


But, what if you were short-changed from the get-go?

  • Instead of a nice, stable home to grow up in, you got chaos.
  • Instead of friends, you got bullies.
  • Instead of love, you got abuse.
  • Instead of being given the right to feel safe and a reason to trust, you were violated.
  • Instead of guidance, you got shoved aside to figure it all out for yourself.
  • Instead of learning to be self-disciplined & the rewards of being so, you never knew what to expect thus, you just float through life and deal with whatever comes at you at the moment.
  • Instead of good, old-fashioned values, you learned that the thing to do is look out for #1 no matter who suffers.

...because of all of this your life has just been one big mess after another.
Maybe you even feel like a born loser ??

So, what are you gonna do?

  • Feel sorry for yourself?
  • Drown yourself in drink or become an addict?
  • Pass the abuse down to your kids?
  • Become a scourge of society?
  • Pile on the Bling to make yourself feel & look important?

Or, are you going to take the reigns and try to win for yourself what that "lucky" person has?
(I'm talking about piece of mind and self-respect here, not possessions.)

If you weren't dealt a winning hand, you still have choices.
You can choose how you let it all affects you.
It's your birthright and you can choose to demand it regardless of who, or what denied you of it in the beginning.

It's the same with all obstacles in life.
Even that so-called lucky person is going to go through some pretty tough situations in their lifetime.
No one is immune.

If you can change it, then change it.
If you can get rid of it, then hurry up and toss it out.
If you can at least make it better, then do what you can.

If there's not a thing you can do about it...

...You can't change it
...You can't get rid of it
...You can't make it better

           ...then learn to live with it the best you can.

If you can forgive it for the sake of your own sanity, then by all means do it!
Even if the person who wronged you never apologizes.



Now, onto the business aspect...


You can choose to work hard and do it the right way.
Or, you can choose to look for every shortcut to instant riches and wind up running in circles.

If these so-called "Magic Phrases" and others like them catch your eye and draw you in,
then maybe you've got a problem...

  • Instant Cash
  • Push-button
  • Automatic
  • Killer
  • Covert
  • Tactics
  • Spy
  • Pirates
  • Warrior

Just look at all of that!

What's the running theme here?
Be lazy, make money at all costs, hate, destroy, pilfer, plunder, steal, & fight.

That doesn't sound like business to me.

It sounds like: "come and let's lie in wait for the next poor, desperate soul to come along".

 >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D


Why not make the choice to refuse their enticements?  :idea:

Are you looking to build an honest and respectable business?

Or, are you looking to associate yourself with the language & methods of criminals & gangsters?

It's your choice!

amen sister! I wonder sometimes how the snake oil salesmen think they are living when they are peddling their useless junk, on people looking for a way to get ahead.

Sadly, because of greed and/or impatience, there's still reason in their own minds for them continue on in this way.

That will change ;)
