Get On with Your LIfe
You've lost your job, that's all you know, and you don't have money to go to school. Get on with your life. You sunk all the money you have into an internet business and haven't made a dime. Get on with your life. You say that you are broke and homeless have no education and no hope. Get on with your life.
The wise man Solomon said, "The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned, but time and chance happens them all."
It is not always the most qualified that get the prize. We have all seen people finish school with a handful of degrees. We have seen great athletes with tremendous natural ability, and yet they didn't make it in life in spite of their knowledge and ability. Why? Solomon says, "Time and chance happen to them all."
Time is the downfall of many people. When you are young, it seems that you have an unlimited amount, but it slips away quickly. To accomplish what you desire, you must use time wisely. Those who achieve success, set goals, write them down, and stick to them. Without goals you have no purpose and tend to drift through life.
Chance happens to us all. The executive makes a wrong judgement. The factory worker is laid off, because the company moves to cheaper labor in a foreign country. The athlete has an unexpected injury. The great shooter goe into a slump. How do you handle these mishaps? Such occurrences are a part of life. We just have to learn to deal with them.
What if something happens in your life that is not according to your plans? It's crucial that you don't panic. The critical thing is not the problems, but how you react to them. Career setbacks don't mean that you are a failure. They just reveal the need to keep trying.
One thing is for certain. If you keep on doing what you have been doing, you will keep on getting what you have been getting. If you are not getting what you want, nothing is going to change until you change what you are doing. Find out what doesn't work and stop doing it. Then try something different.
Falling on your face in the job you are trained for is difficult. I know. I have been there and done that. It may be the best thing that ever happened to you. You may find something you like even better. Experience definitely helps, but it's not everything. Having a talent for what, your doing can make up for lack of training and experience. Whether or not you succeed, depends largely on how hard and how smart you work.
The first thing you need to do is to enlarge your vision. We get so use to our own job and problems that we forget that our little space is just a tiny part of this world. Before you can improve your lot in life, you have to make room for it in your thinking.
There is life beyond the job you have or just lost. There are so many possibilities that it can stagger your imagination. Many hold themselves back from the good things in life by their limited vision. Open your eyes, believe in yourself. Go out there and grab your share of the pie!
If an Internet business is not for you, keep trying. It's no disgrace to lose a job, it's only a disgrace if you give up. We all have to search for the place where we fit. Sometimes the most brilliant fails because they are like a square peg in a round hole. Your niche is out there. You will find it. It is easier to find a job when you have one, so keep what you have until you find something better.
If you are struggling to keep your head above water in an internet business, get help from someone that is successful. Believing the hype about easy money you see on the internet is like asking a fat doctor for advice on losing weight.
Start writing a newsletter and get an autoresponder, so that you can follow up by auto pilot. Investigate some good affiliate programs you can belong to. Ask someone in the business what they recommend. You can make it if you keep learning and applying it to your action.

Garbage In Its Place
There is nothing worse than seeing garbage blowing down the street of your neighborhood, or finding broken shards of glass at the local swimming hole where children play. Wildlife is just as vulnerable to garbage and many have lost their lives after becoming tangled in waste or mistaking garbage for food. It is up to each of us to make an effort to minimize this unsightly, and sometimes hazardous, problem.

Brilliant Autumn: Reaping a Bounteous Harvest
"But if in your thought you must measure time intoseasons, let each season encircle all the other seasons, And let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing." - Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)
How To Be Secure In An Insecure World
Most of us believe that our happiness and security are dependent upon our relationships, work, income and the external events that take place in our lives. When things are going well there is a sense of well-being and safety. We sleep well at night, wake up feeling refreshed and have the sense that the world can be managed - that we are in control. However, this kind of security is fleeting. As people and events are constantly changing, we are often edgy about what's coming down the road.
If we want to fill our heads with the doom and gloom society seems to thrive on, all we need to do is turn on the local news at night. To make that quantum leap toward personal happiness and success in life, sometimes we just need to do what so many people seem to be talking about lately: clean house and take personal inventory of the people we associate with most.
Giving Life Meaning
Have you thought about what you want people to say about you after you're gone? Can you hear the voices saying, "He was a great man." Or "She really will be missed." What else do they say?

Your James Bond Fantasies Become Real
The problem with this is that fantasies usually don't come by chance. You have to plan them yourself. This seems to kill the very idea of a natural fantasy because you have to deal with the mundane realities of the arrangements.
It Only Takes a Spark - Pass It On
Great inspiring people have influenced people in every area of life throughout centuries. Henry David Thoreau, the great 19th century transcendentalist writer, was influenced by the great Ralph Waldo Emerson. Thoreau was the impetus for Ghandi's and Martin Luther King Jr's civil disobedience, which ultimately changed the shape of the world for a better humanity. Socrates taught Plato who taught Aristotle, who collectively remain the greatest philosophical trio in history. We often stand on the shoulders of giants. And we can notice connections such as these throughout history--a lineage--a passing down of wisdom. Such is the case in the drumming world as well. It only takes a spark. And that spark can potentially inspire many to enter a new encouraging world, accompanied by enthusiasm, new hope, and excitement.
The Final Frontier
When all that you have done has not brought you what you truly desire, isn't it about time to move out of the box ask questions and make changes?
Dont Die With Your Dreams Still Inside You
I write and talk a lot about dreams. Primarily because I know we serve an awesome and amazing God, who gave us dreams for an awesome and amazing purpose. We all have a dream to do something great, go somewhere incredible, achieve the unachievable, beat the unbeatable or meet the "unmeetable." Unfortunately, more often than not, most dreams remain unrealized; silenced by fear and doubt. What's needed is a renaissance to recapture the spirit and belief we once had as children. We need to remind ourselves in all that we desire to be, have and do... "I can, if I believe I can." My aim is to inspire as many people as possible to passionately pursue and do their dreams. Revitalize your dreams. Start today. Don't just dream; dream BIG dreams! Put them in your heart, then put them on the wall, refrigerator, mirror ... wherever you'll see them often. Remind yourself you are more than worthy of everything your heart ever imagined. Believe, then diligently commit to a plan to achieve.Resolve to live a life that ends the way you want it to; and don't you dare, I say don't you dare... die with your dreams still inside you.
The Seasons Of Life, Part 5 of 5
This week is Part Five of our five part series on The Seasons of Life.
I.Q. You Q. He, She, or It Qs.
I have, in recent years, come to believe that IQ tests are a waste of time for most of us, and a waste of money for some of us. In fact, as a general rule of thumb, if you want to know how stupid you are, check to see if you're paying for an online IQ test.
The Best Gift to Give Yourself and Others

Spirits Language: How to Tell Whos Who in Your Inner Conversations
Your Spirit is continuously beaming communications to you. As long as your mind is properly receptive to your Spirit, this vital communication is received. But if your mind is busy being distracted by its fascination with the world that serves the ego, or by the fear-based broadcasts of the lower self, the communications are not received-or the signals are fuzzy at best. Like a radio broadcast that takes place regardless of who is listening, your Spirit is constantly broadcasting to you, but you can only receive that broadcast if your radio is tuned to the right station and you are paying attention.
Wisdom of the Worlds Proverbs
You don't have to excavate diamond mines or oil fields to find one of the world's greatest treasures. All you need to do is look at the world's proverbs--the "people's wisdom." Legendary Spanish writer Miguel De Cervantes described proverbs as "short sentences drawn from long experiences," and Scottish Historian Thomas Carlyle once wrote, "There is often more spiritual force in a proverb than in whole philosophical systems."
Anamcara - Being Forever Enough
When was the last time you felt you were enough just as you are? When was the last time you felt that you were seen as the being you are? When was the last time you felt unconditionally loved and loving?
Those of you, who can fathom yourselves welcoming and enjoying a big, major change in your life right now, raise your hands! When I say, change, it might be a good change and it might be a bad change. Either way, we all don't know what that change is going to be like, what aspect of our lives is going to change and we might not even be happy with it.
