What I’m Loving This Week:…Sir Winston Churchill’s address!

isDuring one of his numerous visits to his old school at Harrow, Prime minister Winston Churchill addressed the students in the following way.  He was in the big dining hall that affords a view of the lights of London from Harrow on the Hill.  The headmaster introduced the 1.7 – metre (five-foot-five) intellectual giant in a flourishing manner.  After graciously acknowledging the profuse introduction, it is said that Churchill made that never-to-be-forgotten statement:   “Young gentlemen, never give up, never give up, never give up, never, never, never, never.”  Then he sat down.  Wow!

My take away/s from this powerful statement:

1.People are not defeated when they fail but are defeated when they give up.

2.Men do not fail.  They just give up easily.

3.The greatest failure is to stop trying.

4.It’s always too soon to quit

Maybe you have tried to make money online, have struggled for years but No online breakthrough….remember:  If at first you don’t succeed…try;try ; try again.  If  a certain approach doesn’t produce the outcome  hoped for, change course but don’t ever quite.

The reason so many teenager online entrepreneur are mega-millionaires is not just they get it or have grown up in the digital economy, but that they are not afraid of trying new things using the Internet… (Today’s gold rush).

This is my story and I am sticking to it!

What I’m Loving This Week! Rebound true stories:

Are you in the valley of the shadow of death.  God is Good and Faithful all the time. I will be the first  to admit that its not easy to acknowledge the goodness of God when in pain and the way is not clear . Her are some amazing stories of faith and perseverance  to demonstrate anyone can rebound and rebuild life again.

These are their stories first hand:

1.Melisa A

After 11 years of marriage & a stay at home mom, at 45 years old I found myself in my last semester of college, (BS Kinesiology-Exercise Physiology) going through a NASTY divorce.

My 11-yr old son and I were kicked out of our home, my son’s father gave us some of our belongings he tossed in trash bags dumped on the driveway, the others were broken, or simply thrown in the trash. For 2 years we slept on the floor of my father in-laws mobile home.

My son was 2 months away from graduating elementary school, and I was 2 months from earning my degree. I had no money, no job, and really no place to live, all the while trying to figure out how I was going to pay for a lawyer to handle my divorce. The plan I had for my life and career had taken a DRASTIC turn. The new goal: survive and raise and provide for my son.

I guess lessons learned from that experience is PERSERVERANCE, I AM persistant. I did not quit or give up. Emotionally defeated and scared shitless, questioning my life, my everything. I had no confidence in myself, my value, or my ability to make a decision. One thing I did knew, was I had to keep moving. Stopping and doing nothing would kill me physically and emotionally. Countelss times,I had to litteraly pick myself up from the floor, find a job-that didn’t pay near enough to rent an apt or room someplace as attorney fees consumed everything I earned.

In spite of IT all, I finished school earned my degree, provided for my son (with the help of Grandma and Grandpa). My son watched how I handled a MESSED up situation with quiet courage and persistence to do what I thought was the right thing for us to survive. Yes, many many tears but lots of hard work to pull myself up and get out.

2.Gladys J

I have had some very rough times dealing with breast cancer, then a bad fall and rehab, with no family who had time to help, but God never failed me! He provided me with the best neighbors! My income stopped, but God never has!! I have a roof over my head, and a good place to sleep now, at my home! When you’re down to nothing in this earthly world, God NEVER lets go of His child!! Blessed Assurance, Jesus is mine!

3.John J

“Several years ago six months into my business we experienced a family tragedy which really rocked my world and sent me spiraling downward. However, a little more than a year later I received an award for excellence and had a client of mine win Young Entrepreneur of the year at our regional conference.”

 

4.Julie

“I have started looking at it like lifting weights. In order to grow stronger we have to keep increasing the weights. You may not see it as a good thing at the time but without this increased weight each time you will not grow stronger and as you grow stronger what used to rock your world will just be a piece of cake the second time around.”

 

5.Elizabeth P

When beginning nursing education, I had some challenges. Needed to spend summer studying to get a head start on medical terminology & pharmacology. The school counselor told me that I may not graduate. That was the downer/fall.
Well, I kept going & did not stay down. I wanted to prove her wrong. Yes, she motivated me. It was so good when graduation day came & she was there.

 

6.James J

In 1990 after second failed back surgery I went out on temporary/permanent disability from the federal government and I went up to 360 mg of Oxycontin every eight hours and 25 mcg Fentanyl  patch every three days. In 2013 I had three aneurysms and I lost three months of my life and when I came home I start taking the 360 mg of Oxycontin and putting on the fentanyl patch my sister told me for years I didn’t need it but I said the doctor would prescribe it if I didn’t need it. I then went to pain management and found out it was the memory of the pain is the worst possible pain I’ve had that I’ve been suffering all those years and I went home and stop taking all those painkillers.
Today I’m on to morphine pills a day as needed some days I don’t take any and 25 mg Fenton all patch because I do have pain every day but how do I not of had the aneurysm’s which killed my dad at age 48 and I wasn’t going to make 55 and now I’m 59.

 

7.Patrick H

I almost died from AML Leukemia in 1997 and again in 2000. Both times I bounced mentally within hours; physically it took fifteen years total, and now I am in the bounce financially. Things are looking magnificent as I gain altitude! That leukemia turned into a very great blessing along the way.

 

8.Sarah B

The twins put me me in a fog for a few years but I’ve come back as a new person and feel like there isn’t much I can’t accomplish since I managed to have twins.

I will leave you with this powerful quote:

“No, there is no failure for the man who realizes his power, who never knows when he is beaten; there is no failure for the determined endeavor; the unconquerable will.  There is no failure for the man who gets up every time he falls, who rebounds like a rubber ball, who persists when every one else gives up, who pushes on when everyone else turns back.”. – ORISON SWETT MARDEN

This is my story and I am sticking to it!

What I’m Loving This Week: The SOLUTION Is Not Far!

I will illustrate my message by sharing a story.DSCF1939

The story is about three negative women who lived in the bayou (a bayou is an inlet or outlet of a lake or river ) . Every day they complained, “We’ve got it bad living in this bayou.  No opportunity here.  Others are living in the city where they have unlimited opportunities.  Us, we got nothing.”  This is the complaint they lived their lives by, until one day a positive-thinking woman came along.  After listening to the complaints, she said, “Nonsense! Opportunity?  You want opportunity?  You got opportunity.  You live on the bayou.  The bayou leads to the river. The river leads to the gulf.  The gulf leads to the ocean.  You can go anywhere from where you are?”

Moral of the story:  Most people go through life complaining about how bad the economy is, how unhelpful the government is and how everything and everyone is against them.  The blame game goes on and on but has never made anybody’s situation  change for the better.  It’s easy to  hold someone responsible for your dilemma. But I suggest to you…look around you,the solution is not far.

What ever crisis you might be in right now, just remember that there is always a better way.  Dare to try something different.

This is my story and I am sticking to it!

Those of us who have been around long enough know that adversities are always going to be a part of the equation of life on this planet earth.  However, the question for you is how will you handle hard times (NOT IF) but when they do show up.  Will you rise to the challenge ?  Will you allow the situation to break you or bring a breakthrough in your life?

Today , I would like us to look at the life of one individual who turned pain into passion. (You can call it “Monetizing life experiences” if you want”).  I hope it will impact your life as it did mine.

Charles Plumb was a U.S Nay jet pilot, his plane was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile.  Plumb ejected and parachuted into enemy hands.  He was captured and spent 2103 days in a communist Vietnamese prison camp.  He survived the ideal and now travels the world sharing on lessons learned from that experience.  He is the author of two books – ‘I’m No Hero and ‘The Lost Domino’.

Charles made a choice to be better and not bitter.  He could have taken the easier way out of depending on the welfare system since he was a veteran, understandably so, but he chose to share his story to encourage others to use life experiences to make the world a better place.

Everybody has a story but oftentimes, maybe due to ignorance or self- doubt you are afraid and wonder whether anyone will listen to your story.  My challenge is simple: Just do it, start by sharing your story to a someone who is discouraged and see what happens. Don’t underestimate the power of your life story. Someone is stuck in a valley and is about to give up, someone is depressed; discouraged; hopeless and helpless. You never know who might be saved by your personal experience.  Who knows, maybe your purpose is hidden in your experience.

Let’s endevour to use our different life experiences to uplift others.

I will leave you with this wonderful quote:

“Your past experiences are valuable lessons to you now, learn from them.  Oh Yes, the past can hurt, but you can either run from it, or learn from it. —–Rafiki, from The Lion King movie.

This is my story and I’m sticking to it folks!

What I’m Loving This Week: The Shoeshine Boy’s Zero To Hero Story!

This week I am sharing a very inspiring story about a man called George Johnson.  George grew up in Chicago, polishing shoes in a barber shop.  George used to hear his black friends say, “I wish I could straighten my hair”.

One day while George was shining a man’s shoes, he asked him, “What do you do?”

“I’m a chemist,” the man replied.

“What do chemists do?”  George asked.

“I mix things,” the man explained.

“Do you think you could mix something that would straighten my hair?”

The chemist said, “Maybe I can put something together.”

He did.  George tried it on his hair and it worked.  He bottled the product and sold it to some of his friends and a few stores.  Soon he build a sales force to sell “Ultra-Sheen.”

Today, George Johnson’s personal fortune is over several million dollars.  That’s not bad for someone with little education and who was once a shoeshine boy.

The moral of the story:  Sometimes you have to get desperate before you get creative!

This is my story and I am sticking to it.

How to Make Money Online by Affiliate Marketing: Are you ready to reinvent yourself?

How to make money online by affiliate marketing has to be the most-asked question in the whole arena of internet marketing. You are going to have a lot of choices and the choices you make will determine whether you will make money fast or not.

The affiliate marketing model for making money online works for anyone who follows the instructions. Yes there are instructions, certain steps to take, things to do. But it is easy to learn and easy to do.

And an additional bonus is built right in! It doesn’t take much money to get going in this. Zero to very little.

Here’s some basics. An affiliate marketer promotes products that pay a commission when they sell. But sales is not the only way to get a commission!

There are two commission generating models.

1. You cause a product to sell, and get the commission.

2. You cause a prospect to become a “lead” and get the commission for that.

In either case, after the generation of the commission, there is no more work for you as the affiliate. You should just concentrate on generating traffic.

In the first model you send a prospect to a sales page to pay for the product and the company you are affiliated with takes over and delivers. It’s intriguing to consider that you will never have to talk to a customer or provide any customer service.

In the second model you only have to get your prospects to provide an email or an application or place a “trial order” which the company follows up on. In the business this is called CPA, which stands for cost per action.

Many people swear by CPA as the fastest way to affiliate commissions because people have less resistance to an offer they don’t have to pay for or, in some cases, a small S&H fee for a product they get a free trial on and get to keep.

In either case, standard affiliate marketing or CPA, you are going to benefit from some exact instruction on how to do either one.

And you’ll benefit from the dictum about affiliate marketing that bears repeating. And that is that there are only two things that make up affiliate marketing and that is the product and the prospect.

Could something that simple actually work? You bet!

All you have to do do is two things.

You have to find a good offer and then find customers to buy it.

As an example lets say that your product is a “How to Make Money Online” digital download product.

You want to go find people who are looking to do that very thing. And this is where the incredible “sorting feature” the internet provides us.

Simply by targeting certain keywords in an article, for example, you can be sure that Google will serve up your article to the very people who typed in your keywords. That’s what I meant when I said “sorting the traffic.”

I have benefited greatly from the online marketing schools I attended last year and now there are even better ones to go with.

What I’m Loving This Week:…..Rising above adversity:

DSCF9591

This week I am loving the following people who turned their life around despite their painful circumstances.  It’s all about perseverance and endurance and the desire to live a fulfilled life.

Julie Donley overcame addiction, a grave illness, divorce, single parenthood, obesity, indebtedness and being laid-off three times. (Talk of things going wrong!)  In spite of all this, she has written several books including “Does Change have to be H.A.R.D.?”,  “The Journey Called You” and “A Road map to Self-Discovery and Acceptance”.

Bethany Hamilton: At 13 she was attacked by a shark while surfing.  Within 6 months she was surfing again competitively….and winning…with one arm.  She was Athlete of the Year in 2004

Ray Kroc Founder of McDonald’s.”When I started the company I was 52 years old.  I had diabetes, lost my gall bladder and most of my thyroid gland.  But I  was convinced that the best was ahead of me.”

Wilma Rudolph:”My mother taught me very early to believe I  could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to………The first was to walk without braces.”  She was the first American woman to win 3 gold medals in a single Olympics.

It was Epictetus who once said, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”

You can choose to let adversity lock your potential or let it bring the best in you.

This is my story and I am sticking to it!

What I’m Loving This Week! Blind people who refused to get a cup and beg……..

DSCF9585The following people proved to the world that one does not need eyesight to fulfill his/her life purpose.  It’s amazing the number of people who believe that vision means eyesight.

Jose Feliciano from Puerto Rico proved that you don’t need eyesight to achieve your dream. Not only was he born poor, he was also blind. Some of the neighbors suggested that he get a cup and beg for money like blind people were supposed to do, but Jose refused. He found an old piece of guitar and taught himself how to play.  He practiced day and night, and sometimes until his fingers bled.  Today Jose Feliciano is considered one of the greatest guitarist of all time.  He wrote a popular Christmas song called Feliz Navidad.

Helen Keller became blind and deaf at the age of 19 months, yet she became one of the greatest women of all times. She too proved to us all that you don’t need eyesight to make your dreams come true. She is credited with the quote,” The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”

Stevie Wonder’s achievements need no reminding.  He too proved beyond any doubt that you don’t need eyesight to achieve greatness. Steve was also born poor and blind in Saginaw, Michigan. He had a vision (NOT EYESIGHT) to become great. He kept trying until he was discovered and signed by Motown Records. The rest is history , as they say.

Ray Charles started losing his sight at the age of five.  His mother didn’t have the money to take him to a specialist, and he eventually went blind.  He could have given up, but he decided to fight for his dream.  He went on to become an American icon, was a legendary musician who pioneered the genre of soul music during the 1950’s. Often called the “Father of Soul,” Charles combined blues, gospel and jazz to create groundbreaking hits such as “Unchain My Heart,” “Hit the Road Jack” ; “Georgia on My Mind;” and “My Jesus Is All the World to Me”.

Life might be knocking you down right now and you are seriously considering giving up. May these stories of people who succeeded against all odds, encourage you today.

Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18

This is my story and I  am sticking to it!
