Think before you Speak … Part 5

1111Rarely when we are presented with the unknown do we research the facts or seek the truth before we speak. We’re all guilty of just assuming something without knowing the truth. I have come across this many times in this business endeavor. Some of us think we know it all and speak in that fashion but that type of attitude will often times just land you flat on your face when you realize what you thought isn’t what you know and what you know isn’t what you thought.

Everyone and everything has a past history. Some may not be positive ones while others are positive. But a dark shadow in your past history is something we all have and have done something that we chose not to express or discuss. Nothing and No one is perfect !! Mistakes are made and often times corrected so they are not repeated again and again. What a person, business, company, etc. has done in the past should not be forever chain linked to them. But when they say the truth shall set you free … the truth is the key to that padlock that has you chained to your past.

Those who know the truth should speak it and spread it like wildfire. I am posting this blog entry today bcuz the company whom I’ve started a business endeavor with has a tarnished past and it is sadly chain linked to it’s mistakes by people who chose to or do not seek the truth before they speak. Being in this business I know the truths and I solely wish I could set the record straight and realign the facts so that this company can be set free from their past that seems to be haunting them forever.

So many false assumptions, facts, and negativity has been written about this company. All of which are either falsely written by haters/people who failed in the business, based on highly outdated information, or just plain hot air blowers. I call them heater people bcuz they’re just blowing hot air about a company/business they know nothing about nor been a part of. Do you research first or speak to someone who knows the truth before you believe in the false speakers or prophets who claim to know everything about this company or business.

But speaking and sharing false facts isn’t something *new* as Christians many of us know in the bible stories about false prophets and falsehoods being spoke upon Jesus, God, and it’s disciples. But this isn’t a religion post so I’m not going to go more into that. Some of the falsehoods spoken upon this company really just makes me feel sad not for the company that is being bashed but for the person who is doing the bashing. I feel remorse and sorry for this person to be holding just a hateful putrid soul rotting falsehood in their mind and heart bcuz what it’s really doing is harming themselves and not the company or business.

The truth is this company/business is BOOMiNG and people who speak/write/blog these negative falsehoods are just brushed off like dandruff on your shoulder bcuz the truth is there are millions who know the truth and one parasite or a group of parasites can’t compare to the millions of defenders who will crush and disinfect with one swoop. So before you speak … think ! Do your research and know the facts before you inevitably fall flat on your face by truth.

I admit it’s difficult working with a company that has such a tarnished past and many knowing about it and believing the false and dwelling in the past history but I have made it a goal upon myself to polish and rebuff the reputation of this company and let it shine for the truth they are and honestly believe even the most tarnished of tarnished can be made new again and seen for the true beauty within.

Slowly but Surely … Part 4

canstock22551107So things are starting to get back into flow and I’m back on the snail trail of my business endeavor. I said in the 1st post that I am going to continually post about my journey not just for personal road marks of where I’ve started but also to share my experience along with potential prospects who begin their own journey along side me. The beginning has been pretty rough and skepticism has been a annoying passenger but I’m beginning to see the light and slowly but surely gaining more and more hope in this business opportunity.

I’m still fairly *new* at this as it’s only been like a little over a months since I signed up but so far I have made a little over $13. I know you’re thinking … (>⌂<) $13 DOLLARS that’s a Starbuck coffee amount. But I have only just begun and have faith that with time my $13 will eventually become $1,300 dollars then $13,000 then $130,000 and it never hurts to dream/wish big to it becoming $13 million dollars *Insert Dr. Evil’s pinky facial expression*. Many have put me down, laughed at me for trying to stick it with this business, some have even placed bets on how long before I quit … You can keep your pathetic money bcuz I have no intentions of quitting !!

I know this business isn’t going to be an easy rat race where I’m gonna instantly zip across to the finish line a winner. Nope, in this business you start off as a snail moving slowly and not getting very far but eventually you will gain legs and the more legs you gain you will transform into a caterpillar slinking and moving at a fast pace. I think we all learning the Life stages of a Butterfly in Elementary school. Once you reach your caterpillar stage you will then move on to earning your wings and being a beautiful Butterfly free to fly as you please and be free from the confines and conformity of the Employees life.

Many have been negative and many have discouraged me but I am going to continue forward in this business maintaining my BIG Dreams, Hopes, and Goals that this business is going to work out as long as I put in the hard work required to reach the peak of this endeavor. Just like climbers of Mt. Everest … some see it’s impossible to do but there has been many before you that have made the climb, reached the peak, and sharing their stories of the sheer beauty and freedom you feel once at the peak.

Only those who are willing to take the risk, make the effort, and put their Dreams into action will reach the summit and peak to look down upon all those who said you can’t, you won’t, and spit out all the negative towards you. Your success in Life whether it’s a business or anything ONLY and SOLELY depends on YOU and nobody else. Others can say all they want to say but in the end … It is you who will succeed and move in the direction of the path you chose.

Turn your eyes to God …

11205007_10155477955150307_4489942187146447415_nSo some ugly parts of me decided to rear it’s ugly head recently and my Life had spiraled out of control. My inner demons had cornered me to the edge of a cliff and the only option was the battle them or jump off to my death. I was seriously ready to jump off as I felt I wasn’t strong enough to battle them on my own.

Everyone goes through dark points in their life and everyone has skeletons in their closet that they prefer not to share with anyone. Sometimes when you reach a really dark point in your Life those skeletons come to Life and haunt you to the point where you just wanna end it all. I was there at that point where I was really ready to just throw in my towel and leave this Earth and Life.

But the darkness had blinded me from seeing the beauty that is around me that makes Life so worth living. I have a wonderful Husband who loves me, a family who cares about me even though they don’t exactly show it, friends who truly are more than just friends … True Friends, and one Best Friend or BFF as the younger peeps call it that would move mountains for me.

The darkness that had consumed me really did blot out my sunshine and blindfolded me from seeing all that I had in my Life that’s of worth. But what really returned the sunshine into my Life was God. I was seeing bits and pieces of his reminder that I am worthy of living on. I had deleted ALL my Facebook friends but that doesn’t mean you deleted ALL the pages your Liked.

There were messages being posted by Pastor Joel and Victoria Osteen that were bulls eye hits straight to my heart. It was as if they were Facebook messages from God to remind me that I am not alone in the battle with my demons. Life was still difficult but slowly things started to gain light and the darkness was slowly fading away.

My husband and I started cleaning out the house and gave a lot of things away to Goodwill. Things we’ve been holding onto that were cluttering our brains, our home, our spirit, our chi, and our lives. While cleaning out the house I came across the book *pictured above*. It was given to us by a dear friend and I’ll admit I’m not a reader and honestly don’t like reading books. But this book enticed me to read it. I had read it once before but didn’t finish. I got half way through and said Meh … I don’t wanna read no more.

My 2nd time around was different. This book has really giving me a sense of purpose now and I think *at least hope* my darkness days are behind me and all I’ll see in Sunshine and dwell in all the beauty that is around me. It was God who held me under his arm and protected me from my demons who were chasing me into darkness and hopelessness. Without the Love and Protection of God I would not be here today. So I honestly believe when they say God Loves you and will go all lengths for you. He truly will and I believe it !!

Thank you, Father for saving me and showing me that I am worthy of Life. I know I still have a long way to go before I reach complete internal happiness with myself and my Life but I know with you I will get there. Thank you, Lord for always being my guiding light when all I see is darkness. Thank you !

Falling before Flying … Part 4

timthumb.phpThis is a continuation or the next chapter so to speak on my *new* business journey. Right now I’m falling repeatedly which to me is just training to make me stronger for when I take flight. Falling is never pleasant whether it’s falling off a bicycle, falling by tripping on something, etc. Falls are always painful in some form whether physical, emotional, or mental.

But this is one of the baby steps I must take to make it in this business. It’s not easy and no business opportunity is !! I am using the metaphor that I am a newly hatched chick and it will be some time before I am able to fly out the nest. I can test my wings but unless I’m ready I will repeatedly fall and that is currently exactly what I am going through.

If you’d like to take a peek at my business you are welcome to do so at … Http://HealthWellness4.MyChoices.Biz I just started in this business so I can’t exactly recommend you join to start your own but if you’re looking for a business opportunity and willing to put in the hard work, time, and effort it takes to building it up to your liking then I would more than be willing to tell you more about it. Just comment below or contact me.

Like my previous posts this business really is a hard trek. But who doesn’t expect that ? Multimillion dollar businesses don’t just miraculous ZOOM to the top overnight. It is a hard grueling process that will test you in all areas of your Life … physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, financially, etc. Just like in Life … Nobody said it’d be easy. They just said it’d be worth it !

The parts I’m falling on are getting people to trust you and have faith in your business. Trust and Faith aren’t easily earned. It’s often times one of the #1 issues people have is to have trust and faith in someone. It’s hard to earn but once earned it’s easy to lose it all in one swoop. The trouble I’m having is finding people whether friends, family, or perfect strangers to have trust and faith that I’m not a scam artist who’s gonna scam you or someone selling faulty products who’s gonna run off with your money.

I can tell them I am the most honest person they’ll ever meet and it’s just hot air to them. I wish people would trust and have faith in people more easily and what I wish even more is that you’d trust and have faith in people you’ve known for a very long time especially if you’ve known the person all your Life. But this is just one of the stones I gotta climb over as I ascend this business mountain towards the summit.

I have trust and faith in myself that I will not give up and eventually reach the point where I can spread my wings and fly in this business. Until then I’m just gonna keep on getting up after every fall and keep trying til I make it to the summit. I will continue to blog about every step I make to share my journey to the top and hopefully with you reading my journey you’ll think about taking the same journey as I did. You can count I’ll be there to guide and support you in the same path I took.

Baby steps to reaching your dream – Part 3

dream-as-if-youll-live-forever-live-as-if-youll-die-today-facebook-timeline-cover-picturetumblr_mtk71c6USC1snexhzo1_1280

Hello ! This is Part 3 to my journey that I have begun to blog about. If you are following and reading my previous posts you’ll know that my husband and I started a journey into a business opportunity and as of Sunday April 12th, 2015 we have take our 1st baby steps into the business. We’re no longer in the just looking phase and moved onto the next step. I chose to continue blogging about my journey and every step we take not bcuz a few of you found my journey posts thrilling and asked me to continue on but bcuz I want something to look back upon if I become successful in this endeavor and I will have a permanent document reminding me of where I had started from and the many rough moments and good moments I’ve endured to get to where I am.

In Part 2 of my journey post I explained how this business opportunity will push you to your limits and I still stand by that. Boy do I stand by that !! I just got back from a three(3) day business seminar which I call Boot Camp bcuz it really pushed you to your limits. Most of the meetings were ALL DAY meetings broken up into two parts like from 9am to 5pm then 7pm to passed midnight !! It wouldn’t be so bad except for the fact that it repeats the next following day. So you’ve been sitting in the chair for 8 hrs. only to get a 2 hr. break from the chair to eat, relax, whatever only to get back in the chair for another 5-6 hrs or more depending if the speaker has a lot to say !!

The breaks between each speaker at this function were like 5-10 minute breaks before the next speaker came on to speak. I dunno if this was done intentionally or they were really tight on time and trying to cram everything in. But 5-10 minutes is not enough time to use the bathroom or grab a snack or drink. Especially when this event was at a place that was packed with probably over 1000 people. The long bathroom lines will be more than 5-10 minutes. Luckily for me being in a wheelchair they other guests made sure to keep the disabled bathrooms open for the disabled.

But it was brutal ! To finish the seminar at around 1am then drive back to your hotel room. Especially for us where we booked a hotel that was 7 miles away from the center of the action. Took us another 10-2o minutes to drive back to our hotel room and once we got back to our hotel room … we ate something since we weren’t able to eat while at the seminar meetings, shower, relax a little, etc. By the time we did finally go to sleep it was 3-4am. meaning we’d have to wake up in 3-4 hrs. I’m not used to that kind of Life ! I admit to you I normally sleep til noon-ish everyday so to have to wake up at 5am or so to shower, get dressed up for the next meeting, and try to get some food prior was hard.

The event location did sell snacks and food but very expensive prices. I bought a ½ cup if even that of Cinnamon glazed Almonds for $4. I’m not a breakfast person either so I didn’t exactly eat breakfast before I arrived. It was sheer exhaustion and on day 2 of the meeting I had to leave early bcuz I was really deep in exhaustion that I was dizzy, nauseous, and rushed to the bathroom to vomit. I was really feeling lower than low ! After some food and fresh air I was better and able to return for the 2nd part but it really reminded me of my previous post explaining about how this business really pushes you to your limits.

But I am still hanging on to the belief that it’ll all be worth it in the end ! As of Sunday April 12th, 2015 @ around 12:05pm my husband and I took our 1st baby steps towards reaching our dreams and taking this journey to the next step. I know it’s not going to get any easier from here but rather going to get harder from here on out but whatever lies ahead I’m ready to take it on full speed. I believe in this business and believe that it will help you achieve your wildest dreams but only if you’re willing to work hard, put in the hard work and effort … but most importantly if you are willing to GIVE IT A CHANCE !!

It’s totally understandable to be skeptical and afraid to try this out but my life motto has always been … “IF YOU DON’T TRY, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW” I always give everything a chance and not afraid to try something *new* whether it’d be a product, craft, food item, etc. I always give it a try bcuz if you don’t you’ll never know !! If you don’t give that *new* drink a try … you’ll never know if it is good ! If you don’t try that *new* route to get to work you’ll never know if it’s faster or time wasting. This business opportunity is definitely all about not being afraid to take a chance. Many who have taken the chance and put in the hard work has harvested the benefits of their hard work and efforts in ways they could never imagined.

If you’re looking for change and wanna try something *new* that can change your life dramatically in many ways. Let me know by contacting me or commenting below and I’ll give the information and details into this business opportunity that my husband and I are going into. We can take this journey together and down the road develop a friendship, learn so many things, and find things about ourselves that we never knew existed. I’m going to continue to blog about my business journey and if through my posts you ever get interested of curious about what this business is or what it’s about just hit the contact me tab or comment below and I’ll get in contact with you. GIVE IT A CHANCE .. BE OPEN-MINDED … TRY NEW THINGS !! IF YOU DON’T TRY YOU’LL NEVER KNOW !!

You Lose it, Before you Earn it … *Part 2*

gdmmzfxdec9qmgqvrwi1Well, only 1 hour before the weekend is over. This blog post is a Part 2 of my previous blog post I posted about my journey in a business opportunity with my husband. I decided that I will blog about my journey in parts not just to share the experiences with your guys but also to serve as a memory of what I went through if and when I do make it BIG in this business opportunity.

I still will not name the business opportunity company name again in respects to the company itself as well as the people who are involved. But Wow !! I mean Wow and emphasize on the WOW … I think I said in my previous post that this business opportunity will test you through all your limits, push all your buttons, and for your car enthusiasts this business opportunity will push you to the Redline !! PUSHES YOU TO YOUR BREAKING POINT !! But will it all be worth it in the end ? I don’t know. But I sure am curious to find out !!

I mean seriously !! I haven’t even physically joined into this business yet and I have broken down into tears, had micro emotional/mental breakdowns, etc. This business opportunity of which I haven’t even fully signed up or registered for has beaten me down and left me in sheer exhaustion. Let me tell you … I AM NOT A PEOPLE PERSON ! If anything I am the complete opposite.

I was never diagnosed but was told I by psychiatrists that I have Social Anxiety Disorder bcuz being around people really made me feel like I was gonna have a heart-attack, pass out, and die. My heartbeats at 1 million miles per second, I sweat, my throat starts to close up, I feel like the walls are closing in on me, and I FREAK OUT !! I was never given medication but told if you conquer your fears it will fade away and become a little easier more and more with time.

Well, growing up mostly a loner with no friends and just being that outcasted weirdo for being disabled and being bullied all my Life even by my own family kinda left me with this fear of people. I hated to be around them and disliked having anything to do with social situations which probably is the stem of my Social Anxiety Disorder. In my early 20s I started to become an aggressive person bcuz of it. If someone stared at me bcuz of the way I walked I would literally wanna grab a beer bottle break it into sharp shards and come after you saying WTF YOU STARING AT ? It was driving me to a brink of insanity !

But after I met my husband he slowly helped me overcome my Social Anxiety although never 100% gone. I am able to go to the mall, movies, and other socially crowded places like a restaurant without freaking out or having a panic attack. Why am I sharing this with you ? Well, to explain to you how uncomfortable I am with social situations. I don’t like being around a crowd of people … EVER !! But this business opportunity causes you to attend seminars, events, meetings, and event functions where you are crammed into a small conference room elbow to elbow with PEOPLE !

If you could read my mind or tap into my brain while I sit at these seminars, meetings, events, etc. I swear you’d probably burst out laughing. It’s only been my 2nd one that I attended yesterday which was like 10 HOURS LONG !! (≥⌂≤) OMFG ! But if you were to tap inside my brain while I’m at these seminars random things are going through my head to keep me calm. For example … I was mentally singing the Pokemon theme song in my head while the event guest speaker was speaking or a video/.gif clip of a kitten playing with a ball of string was playing in my head or Pikachu just winking and saying Pika Pi in his cute high pitched voice. L0L

Those types of things were what was keeping me from freaking out while being in a room full of people. There were a few times that my mental meditation if you can call it that breaks and my Anxiety starts to set in and I feel my throat closing up and my heart beating fast. I just sip some water and a deep breath and I’m back on track. But having to attend these meetings after meetings is one of the essential parts of this business opportunity. While they are not MANDATORY they are encouraged that you attend each meeting.

Now these meetings at the same time can be fun bcuz you go to places you’ve never been, cities you’ve heard of but never visited, etc. But for a person like me constantly having to attend these meetings is like being told to sit on a chair that was covered in tacks and you sit all tense trying not to relax your body bcuz the moment you do you’ll be going home with an ass plate made of tacks. Ya, that’s the metaphor I’m going with ! L0L Try and mentally picture that pincushion butt !! :P

Another example of this business opportunity pushing you to your limits is if you’re married … pray to God you’ll still be married when you go into this business 100%. My husband and I aren’t even into this business yet ! We haven’t even joined, registered, or even started a thing. We’re just attending these meetings, seminars, etc. learning about the high ranked peoples success stories and how they got into the business, etc.

I think I talked about it in my last post that it seems like 90% of the married couples ALL experienced marital problems bcuz of and while going into this business. Some didn’t work out even after that it just broke to the point where it couldn’t be fixed and they divorced, some struggled but were able to patch things up, and many struggled, fought, and now in a healthier marriage than before they ever got into this business.

Well, I am no different !! My husband and I aren’t even in the business … Yet ! And we’ve fought, argued, tears have been shed, mean words were exchanged, silent treatments were put into place, acting like rude roommates instead of a married couple, etc. I mean it got real ugly at some times … really ugly !! (ñ3ñ) I know you drama llama lovers are like Oo, dish out the dirt ! How ugly did it get ? If you really wanna know … let’s just say I purposely removed the toilet paper in the bathroom so if he had to go #2 he was paddling down the river without his paddle. L0L

It’s funny and I laugh about it now but seriously people this business opportunity really pushes you to your limits !! I think my husband got more gray hairs now than prior to learning about this business opportunity and I’ve gained probably another 5lbs. as I’m a emotional eater. *ugh* This business opportunity has put me on edge since day 1 !! Now I can say I relate to those hamsters who run so hard in those little wheels and they run so hard they get flung out of the wheel when they stop ? I totally feel that way !!

But anyways another example I wanna share with you and this one is probably the most common one that everyone who goes into this business is gonna face is … Finances. Money, Moolah, the Green, the Jackson and Jefferson, the Cha-Ching Cha-Ching, whatever you wanna call it !! Every and ANY business opportunity requires a certain amount of principle and I don’t mean the old man who’s office you got dragged to for showing a boy you like your undies. That’s a principal. But if you ask me he’s not much of a princi-pal than a princi-bull. That’s for another blog post !

Principle is pretty much just having some money in which you’ve saved up or acquired to used towards your investment such as a business opportunity. Most business opportunities in my opinion is an investment ! You investing your time, money, and effort into it without any guarantees that it’s gonna work or return/double your investment back.

I’ve explained in some previous blog posts that I am physically disabled and unable to work due to my disability. So my husband is the sole income provider and at one point I was getting SSI *disability* income but once I got married that flew out the door as the Government went broke and started discriminating against who should receive, continue to receive, and who to get cut off. Well, I was one of the people who were cut off. No matter how unfair I thought it was.

Living on a one income lifestyle was difficult in itself. More than 90% of my husband’s pay went towards rent, bills, gas for his daily commute to work, and if there’s anything left we buy groceries. Thanks to stores like Dollar tree, 99¢ only store, etc. we’re able to buy some grocery items with what little money we had left. It was sad and depressing but I prayed for God to bless us and keep us in his care. I didn’t worry too much bcuz I had put my life and our life in his hands. I knew as long as he was in control we’ll be okay !

So with this business opportunity it didn’t require ANY money in the beginning just gas to get to the seminar meeting locations, lunch or dinner afterwards, and some clothes. Oh the clothes you have to wear … Bleh !! (≥~≤) I’m a jeans and tshirt kinda gal. I do not own one single formal or business attire-ish outfit. I had to go buy some and being a plus+ sized woman I kinda dislike clothes shopping. I have broad football player like shoulders so fitting into feminine slender shouldered women’s clothes was a pain.

But as your progress and get closer to officially joining, signing up, and registering for this business opportunity it starts to cost you. $20 here, $250 here, then $112-$150 a month, etc. It starts adding up quickly and if you are living off the pocket lint in your pockets you’re gonna stress and again … BE PUSHED TO YOUR BREAKING POINT !!! There’s a BIG event coming up that our upline sorta kinda requires us to attend and it’s a out of state weekend event.

Ok, out of state this is gonna be fun ! Book a hotel room, Enjoy sorta a mini-vacation especially since it’s getting close to my Birthday this would be like a mini pre-celebration, and getting away from the house which I’m in 24-7. I was just thinking paradise thoughts and saying … Let’s do it !! I wanna have fun !! I wanna go swim in the pool, get some nice suntan, have fun, and maybe meet up some friends that live in the area, etc.

It was all great !! I pulled out my old suitcase, dusted it off, found my swimsuits … even one I bought last Summer but didn’t use bcuz my husband didn’t wanna go swimming that Summer at all, and I started gathering things I’m gonna pack up … my travel journal, toothpaste, etc. But I wasn’t thinking about do we have the money ? I was just thinking about the fun and excitement of a out of town trip.

Then we’re like … Wait ! We haven’t booked a hotel room, yet. Let’s start browsing online for a room. *BAM* Reality hits you like a baseball home run hit right to the face. Room prices just made us *gulp* … (T~T;) Wow ! It’s that expensive ? We’re not even gonna be there that long. Oh Wow ! Do we have money to pay for that ? Let’s make a list and budget the expense costs … again … BEING PUSHED TO YOUR BREAKING POINT !!

I don’t think we can afford this trip ! My husband was like … I don’t care ! We’re going and we’ll figure out a way. I was like … The heck we are ! I didn’t wanna take this trip then get bit in the ass by the bills waiting in our mailbox or since we’re driving their our clunky old car breaks while driving there, the cost it’ll be to have AAA tow our car back all the way to our home, and the additional cost of fixing whatever broke. I just didn’t wanna risk it !! Plus I got two(2) lovely dogs who are my children in furcoats that need to be taken to the boarding place … another expense.

It got SUPER overwhelming !! I was like well there goes my suntan, there goes my dip in the pool, and trip away from home. I told my husband to text our upline and tell him … We’re not going and can’t ! I swear my husband was in tears while typing up the text. He was really crying his eyes out and it hurt me so badly inside to see him cry. It’s okay men you can cry in front of a woman but it’s not gonna feel good to see it ladies.

(=_=) I felt terrible ! It was like I had ripped out his heart, tossed it in the garbage disposal, flipped the switch, scooped out the remains, burned it to ash, swept up the ash, and tossed it in the trash. Seriously ! It was that heartbreaking to see how hurt he was that we couldn’t go on this trip. I mean I forget the whole reason I’m in this business opportunity thing is bcuz of him. This is his dream … his hope … his ambition to use this business to create a better life not just for him but for me and our future together.

I feel lower than the gum on the bottom of someone’s shoe. I literally just wanted to say … It’s okay ! We’ll just go and whatever bills are late … are late. They’ll forgive us, right ? But I know financially we can’t as we cannot afford for me to say that. As I watched him teary and typing out this text … I tried to preoccupy my brain with something more cheerful as I wanted to burst into tears myself.

I hate not having money and constantly counting the pennies in the change jar or being so happy that I found a penny on the floor in a parking lot as it leaves me a penny richer. As a wife I support my husband no matter what and I hope that his dreams and faith in this business opportunity will change things to where rather than being happy about this penny I found in the parking lot I’ll take that penny plus a check and donate it to my local charity, take that penny and a buttload of cash and say to the realtor … This house is SOLD and PAID IN FULL !

But I can’t predict the future. I don’t know whether this business will work for us and if we’ll be the monopoly winners of this Life. It’s an investment ! You just invest and hope the odds are in your favor. This business opportunity asks questions and one of them is WHY…Why are you in this business opportunity ? My why ? MY WHY IS MY HUSBAND !!

I don’t know whether this business is gonna work but I do know one thing … I am going to work my butt off to make it work not just for myself but mostly for my husband !! I don’t wanna see him working til he’s old and gray just to keep a roof over our head, food on the table, and clothes on our backs. I want him to be able to wake up in the morning to garden with me in our beautifully landscaped yard, I want him to be able to get on a boat and go deep sea fishing, I wanna go on vacations outside this country, visit his and my family who live in other countries regularly, and most importantly to not have to worry do we have money to take this trip, do we have enough money to pay for this months bills, do we have enough money to buy groceries, etc. I wanna say buy groceries ? Heck ! Let’s buy the entire grocery store chain !! L0L My dogs will run and own their own boarding pet hotel !! L0L

We all have the right to dream but how many of you are willing to make those dreams a reality and not let these Life issues and mountain climbs called Life bother you any longer ? Chasing your dreams will build escalators to just ride easily up those mountain climbs in Life and helicopter flight you over them to see the beautiful Pangea *Earth* from high above. This is definitely a journey and LIFE in itself is a journey ! Nowhere in the bible does it says Life is gonna be easy but it’s definitely gonna be worth it !! #DREAMBIG

Determined to Rise Above …

stuggle

I know what I’m going to blog about today will most likely have some consequences but I felt that this needs to be heard and written. So my husband and I started getting into this business opportunity and right now we’re just in the presentation stages and learning more about this company and business. I will not disclose the name of this business in respects of the business and the people who are a part of it. But there are many things that I have come to dislike about this business opportunity.

My husband says I am being negative but what he calls negative I call being cautious and aware. I’m not saying this business opportunity won’t work and it’s a scam. Any business opportunity you try, join, or create requires hard work and struggles like the quote by Frederick Douglass *shown above* “If There is No Struggle, There is No Progress“.  Everyone lives their lives differently ! While some need a constant guiding hand in their life, Some need a support system of friends, family, and positive people, Some are better on their own and succeed independently without the constant guidance, support, or motivations.

Of course we all need some form or guidance, support, and motivation once in awhile but if you’re like me who is self-motivated, self-determined, and been that way for pretty much their entire life … You don’t need someone telling you how to do things. This is one of the things I am finding unappealing about this business opportunity. They invite you to attend seminars, motivational meetings, events, constantly giving you audio CDs to listen to regarding the success stories of others who have made it in this business. They talk about what they did, how the did it, and what steps they took to get to where they are today. BIG WHOOP !! So they made it … *applause* Good for you !

But what they did and the steps they took to get where is not gonna be the same for you ! What worked for them did bcuz they it tailored to their goals, their dreams, their lifestyle, etc. If someone says I jumped off a bridge this way and didn’t die … doesn’t mean if you jump off the bridge the same way you’ll also live. I feel like these seminars, motivational meeting/events, etc. are all hogwash ! They want to share their stories on how they succeeded in this business and now living the 6-7 figures lifestyle.

Well, good for them !! How they did it will not guarantee it will work for you. They seem to be training/teaching people who are getting into the business to have like-minded or singular thought process. They shove all these success stories into your brain about how this person and this person all succeeded bcuz they did it this way and that way and if you follow you too will be where they are. I am a independent thinker and person. I do not need anyone to tell me how to do something. I was that kid who got a box of Legos for their Birthday and didn’t even look at the instruction booklet on how to build the house or car or whatever. I built them on how I see fit and worked.

This business opportunity seems to be based off Conformity. The definition of Conform is : comply with rules, standards, or laws ~ (of a person) behave according to socially acceptable conventions or standards. ~ be similar in form or type; agree. So in other words they want you to be like everyone else and be zombie brained with the same train of thought. I’m not saying I am against this business or anything negative about it. I just don’t wanna be anyone’s puppet controlling me in any way.

So as I tread into this business opportunity I am definitely experiencing the struggles and if you’re married this will definitely test your marriage. I can’t tell you the nights my husband and I have gone to bed upset with each other as his brain has already begun to get manipulated by the audio CDs he’s listening to and the conformity seed has started to germinated. He’s already begun swimming in the same direction as the rest of the fishes. While I am fighting to pull him away from the flow and go against the flow to think independently and reach the same destination as them using you’re own routes.

But sadly it has caused many rough nights and marital strains which seem to be another conformity of this business. Many of the successors audio CDs I was forced to listen to bcuz I’m in the car with my husband who’s listening to them a common issue seems every successor went through marital problems even divorce due to this business. So this will definitely test you in all aspects of your Life even parts that have nothing to do with the business like your personal life.

I believe going against the flow and being your own person … you’re own mind … your own individual and then the struggles will not be so hard. Like the traffic navigation app … WAZE. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. If not Waze is a navigational app that will guide you through your everyday travels. When there’s a bumper to bumper traffic Waze gives you alternative side routes to get you ahead of the traffic. Waze is a great example of an app that teaches you to not conform. Why sit there in 0 mph traffic with the rest of the commuting world if you can find side routes that will still get you to your destination. Some may not be as fast and be a longer drive but in the end you will still get to your destination.

I guess a part of this blog post is now becoming a motivation or inspiration to be yourself and not follow or allow anyone to tell you who to be or how to live. So with that I’m going to leave this blog with a few quotes on being yourself and not following the flow.
