The Secret to Making Money

Watch this on the biggest screen you have, in full screen mode. Trust me on this.

This company didn’t make the camera. They took an existing product, the camera, and made it portable, so that people could wear it. They made the camera able to capture action live, in the action. That’s all they did. They didn’t create a new product or even improve on it, they just found another function for it. And I bet they’re making a boat load of money in the process ;-)

When you really want or need money do you notice that ideas come to you? Money making ideas? Ideas for products or services? That is how the Universe ‘sends you money’. There is no such thing as a money tree and money will not fall from the sky. Sorry. Instead, you are given great ideas that You can turn into cold hard cash. But only if you actually do something with those ideas. You have to actually work with them.

Ever notice when you get those great ideas, but then talk yourself out of following up, that you hear about someone else doing something similar? Or even see the product or service being sold on TV or in a store? Those great ideas are not only given to you, they’re given to a lot of people. Most people immediately talk themselves out of taking action because ‘Oh, it will never work.’ Only a few start to follow up. Only ONE takes it all the way to completion. And that ONE is laughing all the way to the bank. Do you want to be that ONE or do you want to keep wanting and needing money?

When you start to follow up on the most viable ideas IGNORE anyone who talks you down. It doesn’t matter who that person is, even if it’s a parent, best friend or significant other. This is your life, your success, your bank account. Successful people have scores of stories about all the people who naysayed them all along the way. The person who invented the potato chip was told it would never sell. Never sell. Hmmm.

Personally, I treat any comment that’s not completely supportive (which is most of them) as a challenge. In my mind I’m saying ‘Oh yeah? Just watch me!’

People who can help you see your idea through will start to come into your life. Resources will become available. Believe in the finished product, no matter what, and it Will come to be! “Make it and they will come.”

The doubters and unbelievers: The ignorant are the first to voice their opinion. They also voice it the loudest. Those who doubt your idea most likely want you to keep them company where they are, not rise to greatness and leave them (misery loves company). This makes a lot of people uncomfortable. When people put down your ideas there’s more at play than the words coming out of their mouths.

Keep at it. “Keep on keeping on.” :-D
If you don’t give up both success and money will come!

Success, Here I Come!!

(Success is not tied to business or money, success is whatever you want it to be.)

Want to be a successful business person or entrepreneur? Then this is your casual dress:

And this would be how you dress for work:

And likewise for men.

If you want your days filled with appointments, with clients and meetings, then buy a nice daytimer. Make this your new reality! Buy the daytimer KNOWING you will be using it!

Don’t wish and hope you’ll live the destiny you want, KNOW you will! And act the part :-D

Your car might be one like this:

bmw_m6-wide

Is there a nice car in your neighbourhood? Every time you’re walking past it pretend that you forgot something so that you can’t get in the car just yet. But you will when you get back. Or that you decided to walk because it’s so nice out or for the exercise. Feel like the car is truly yours. Feel like you DESERVE a car like that! Feel like you deserve THAT car! Truly feel it.
When you walk by a fine restaurant you’re just heading to another upscale restaurant instead. This is your new reality. Believe it. Live it.

Feeling self-worth will bring you So much closer to owning whatever car you want, or anything else for that matter.

Don’t hope, wish or dream. Know and expect. Know that you’re good enough for Anything. You deserve to have Anything you want. And lastly, EXPECT everything you’ve ever wanted to come to you. You’re freaking awesome, why the hell shouldn’t you get everything you want?

A great way to get and stay motivated is a vision board.

DreamBoard

vision-board 4

Melinda-kiksbutt

It is a board that is visual so keep the words to a minimum. You want to visualize ‘your’ car,  house, spouse, vacation, etc on a daily basis. Don’t crowd it with pictures either, you need to be able to clearly see what you want so that you can visualize it.
In the first one the man put his face on the cover of a magazine, that is a Great idea! (As for the last one I’m more motivated by pictures of out of shape people than people in great shape. Buff bodies make me feel guilty and bad about myself. Out of shape is unappealing to me so it gives me more of a push to work out and eat right.)

Motivation and inspiration aren’t onetime deals; you read a book and you’re motivated and inspired for life. No sir. It’s a regular, daily part of life. Likewise, vision boards shouldn’t be your only visualization and self-motivation. You could put stickies up in your room/apartment/house, even if just on the bathroom mirror.  Use good visuals or sayings for your computer/phone/tablet screensaver or wallpaper as well.

That thing that you really want, close your eyes and imagine what it feels like to have it. Smell the new car smell, feel the steering wheel in your hands, the force of gravity as you step on the gas pedal and are pushed back into your seat. Visualize the layout of your new home, what each room looks like, how you’ve decorated them, the view out of the window from your favourite spot, what the backyard looks like. Feel what it’s like to have the partner of your dreams cooking dinner with you, walking beside you when you go for a walk, having deep, soulful conversations late into the night . Truly imagine how good it feels to have or own the things you really want. FEEL those things as if they’re already a part of your life. Hold onto those feelings and relive them Every Single Day!

That, my friends, is how you manifest things into your life.

 

 

What will people think??

We constantly compare ourselves to others. We compare weight, body type/shape, clothes, jobs/careers, cars, partners or spouses….and on and on and on. We compare Everything! We’re not taught to be content with ourselves. We think someone else is ahead of us in some aspect of life because of something they have that we don’t.

Being a fairly happy-go-lucky person I’ve mostly stopped worrying what others think. They have their own life, I have mine. And mine is Much more fun so I’m not going to hold back because someone might judge something about me.

These 2 things, worrying what others think and also constantly comparing ourselves to them, puts us in a prison, a cage. How can you just be happy and live life and when you feel strangers need to approve of you and everything you do?

business-casual-women

Here’s…someone. She’s going to represent every woman we women compare ourselves to. She’s also going to represent the person we’re worrying ‘what will people think??’

What do you know about her?  She’s blonde…right now (might be a dye job). And that’s she’s dressed nicely. Is she dressed for work? Does she like to dress up for herself? Did we catch her just after a photo shoot where they let her keep the clothes?

63f3f6d5cf79c597e44ef745fabf7834

Men, here’s a random man to represent who you see as your bar, as your competition. You try to match him in all areas of life. You worry what he thinks of you, of your actions, of your life. What do you know about him? He’s dressed in business casual, is white or European and looks serious. That’s it.

From these pictures you can’t tell their height, their likes or dislikes, their sense of humour, their hopes and dreams, whether they prefer Coke or Pepsi, cats or dogs, the country or city life…

We may compare our dwelling and car with someone else in the neighbourhood and feel inferior, not knowing that person has a nicer ride and crib because a deceased relative willed them a lot of money. Or a trust fund came due. Or…any host of revenue sources we aren’t aware of.

Someone at work may always be critical of you, of everyone, making you think they’re a mean person. In reality that person could have just lost their parents, be in a nasty divorce and just found out that they have cancer. And they could be dealing with all of this alone.

You may be comparing your modest lifestyle with someone ‘wealthy’ on your block and not know they are so high in debt that they can barely sleep at night, worrying about it. This person is more concerned with giving a fake impression of wealth than with how they can actually manage to sustain that impression and what it’s doing to them.

You just never know. If you don’t know what’s going on in their life, anything about them in fact, then how could they know anything about you and yours?

Walking down the street, or riding the streetcar/subway/bus, people don’t want to just let loose and dance/sing/etc because…’what will people think??’
People don’t want to make noise making love because ‘what will people think??’ I’d imagine they’d just think ‘I’m jealous’. :p

While listening to a kickin’ song and waiting to cross the street why not just bust a move? Are you worried ‘what will people think??’ Get over it! Let them be jealous, or have snarky thoughts. Let that be their problem, not yours.
While driving seat dance to a good song. Who cares what people think? Belt out to your favourite song! Who cares what people think?

If they’re judging you then they must have a pretty miserable or boring life. Their problem, not yours. You’re too busy having a Wonderful life! Or at least you should be :)

If you want to compare yourself to anyone, to worry ‘what will people think??’ here’s your people:

Stylish, in great shape and…not real.

If you’re living any aspect of your life, monitoring your behaviours, based on the question ‘what will people think??’ just remember that you know Nothing about those people. And they know Nothing about you. Appearances tell you nothing about a person. Decide to break free from the prison of ‘what will people think??’ and live to be happy! Everyone loses with judgment. Everyone wins with happy!!

If anyone  makes you feel insecure think of this guy….

Don’t Judge: Yourself or Others

OTHERS

There is much more to people than what we first see…

image_regular

Second Cup was created when Frank O’Dea knew that remaining homeless would kill him. That’s right, one of Canada’s biggest coffee houses was started by a homeless person.

No one is better than anyone else. No one. The only difference is our circumstances. We are all, or have been, close to being homeless. Be grateful that you have resources/family/friends that have kept that from happening.

Easy steps to stop being a ‘homeless snob’:

If you took offence to that title, lighten up! :-D
Acknowledge the person as you pass by. That’s it. Make eye contact and smile, or say “hi” as you pass by. Wish them a pleasant day. That’s it. Easy peasy.

YOURSELF

We are all very hard on ourselves. We all judge ourselves. We also tend to compare our beginning to someone else’s middle or end.

Lindsey Stirling is an amazing violin player. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyC_4jvPzLiSkJkLIkA7B8g. Someone may start taking violin lessons and after a few months give up because they don’t sound like her. Lindsey has been playing the violin for over 20 years, no one is going to sound like her after a few months! But we think like this.

We also lack patience, we want things to happen Right Now. We don’t plan on success taking years so we get down on ourselves and our abilities very quickly. At her passing it’s said that Joan Rivers was more popular, more successful, more ‘hot’ then ever before. She was 81.

Everything will come to us if we are patient, if we take our time, if we believe. We have to believe in our success, in ourselves. Just because Right Now you don’t have the job, the career, the house, the car, the best seller, the company, the customers, the fans, the significant other, the children, the body that you want doesn’t mean you Won’t get them. It just means Keep Trying! Keep working hard! Keep believing in yourself! Because if you don’t believe in yourself no one else will.

Flowers come in all different types, sizes and colours. We are all flowers. We All come in different types, sizes and colours. Yet we compare ourselves to other flowers. Even though they came from different pollen we still insist on comparing ourselves to them. Our DNA is not the same as ANYONE else’s. This DNA shapes who we are and how we look. Yet we find our DNA lacking compared to someone else’s DNA. We compare our apples to someone else’s oranges. That just does not compute!

My favourite flower is the sunflower. It’s not the prettiest but I like it more than any other. I like the colour contrast, its strength, and that it gives us snack food :) Many other people don’t like sunflowers. Likewise there will be people who don’t like something about us yet other people will find that exact same attribute the most charming thing ever.

When you realize what a beautiful flower you are, that no other flower quite compares to you (because you can’t compare flowers) you will start treating yourself the way you need to be treated. You will support yourself instead of putting yourself down. You will believe in yourself in stead of doubting. No matter what anyone else says you will Know that you can do Anything you put your mind to. Anything.

And with that I wish YOU all a pleasant day :-D (See, I told you. Easy peasy.)

It’s a commercial but a Damn good one!

 

Your origin has nothing to do with your journey, destination or who you are:

 

 

Sometimes a little help goes a long way…

 

Whenever you have the opportunity to uplift young people DO IT :-D

 

And of course be an inspiration to others!

 

People will come into your life who will help you out in your time of need but Your drive to succeed will be what really gets you through!

What is Spirituality?

creation1

This topic freaks people out. When you bring it up they think you’re a born again Christian or are trying to sell them religion.
Do you think you’re spiritual? Well you are. Your spirituality is Whatever you believe. It is yours and yours alone. Whether you believe in God/Source/Higher Consciousness or not is your belief; your spirituality. Religion can be strict, full of rules and is typically written down. It’s like goal posts on a playing field. You aim for going just between those goal posts and no where else. Don’t look up in the stands, don’t be curious. Just aim for those goal posts.

I was never one to follow the rules. I also had issues with what I heard in Church. That doesn’t mean I don’t believe, far from it, but I needed room to go outside of the goal posts. Way outside.
When you’re thinking of All that is possible, of every conceivable ‘reality’, look at pictures like this – or at least keep them in mind.
Click on each one, enlarge it. Really look at it. Every single pin-point of light is a star. With planets. Every single one.
Are we the only life forms that could possibly exist in the universe? Hmmm.

Think of every single ‘coincidence’ you’ve experienced. Ever. I don’t believe in coincidence myself.

We only use 10-15% of our brain. Everyone accepts this. Yet many people still believe it’s just coincidence that…when they reach out to a friend that friend says “Hey, I was just thinking about you!”, when they turn on the radio and the song in their head is the one playing on the radio, when they get a feeling to take a different route or get off the highway then find out that change saved them from a bad or lethal accident. Babies who have no attention span can be enraptured by a blank space on the wall. Animals too. Any chance the other 85-90% is at play here? Hmmm.

Things that make you go hmmm.

To me religion paints the world in black in white. I believe the reality is an amazing palette of colours. I think our minds can’t even comprehend most of what is ‘real’. Watch this 4D Tesseract. As your brain tries to figure out what it’s seeing the darn thing moves and your brain gets confused again.

I linked a video about the double slit experiment in a previous post. It, and many other great ideas, get mentioned in this awesome video by Joe Rogan:

Spirituality is questioning, questioning, questioning. And throwing out the rule book. And realizing that we likely can’t conceive of most of what even…IS…until we Completely open our minds. Stop judging ideas, who’s to say the weirdest ideas anyone has about existence aren’t Bang On? Even if they contradict?

Oh, and don’t be judging reality by what your eyes see. Or your 5 senses really: we can’t see UV light or hear dog whistles. And these pictures are Not moving ;-)
