What are jealousy-Does Envy deserve a standing ovation?

The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves. –William Penn, Some Fruits of Solitude. 1693

The stench of envy and jealousy is foul wreaking odorous smells that follow and linger for days.  Jealousy is the tormentor.   It tags on labels itself as the leader of your destiny. Jealousy mission statement is designed to attract and the attack.

The mission statement of Jealousy may be inviting have purpose and people say “hey that is deep.”  But the call to jealousy has deep roots that will release its branches and entangle you with a grip so tight that only you can release its hold.

I’m sure each of played the lotto this weekend, everyone believes they possessed the winning numbers that would include me as well, we dreamed and spoke of what we’d do with 640million dollars.  Calling off the numbers arrived we scrambled to review each ticket to find out it wasn’t us.  The craze traveled from coast to coast, family pools to work pools each believing the time has come we desire to win. What happen to you after your ticket did not have but one or no numbers?

I have to tell you I was disappointment, I like others built my-self up with our pool of tickets. There was, laughter, talking, and more fun than you could image. What a let-down, so I thought.  My mind begin to click I heard my parents say grateful. Boy did my head start to spend. I began to recall the things I was grateful for.  First my Job I’m a Registered Nurse working in a field that I have great respect and passion for. I’m a mother of 3 wonderful sons’ one college graduate in May this year, another high school graduate and one currently a sophomore in college.

 I am married to the most patient man on this earth who deals with me. I have great parents who have been married for 59 years and since they were 15 years old.  I have the love of the all mighty God who created and knew me before I was placed in my mothers’ womb.  I am grateful, and nothing on this earth defines me. I enjoyed every moment we experienced with the lotto craze but I don’t want to get tangled into envy and jealousy because I did not win.  Sometimes we have to speak to our hearts and remind ourselves what defines us.

The wonderful thing that happen, during this lotto craze, I see my family still dreams and dreams big.

[Change]-Making room and expecting the best

“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.   Robert Fulghum

 

I love this quote choose the crayon you’d like to be and tell why. I believe I move from color to color depending on the situation. As a nursing associate administrator there are days which sharp becomes priority. For example as it relate to attire, a business meeting dictates a sharp dress a style that will bring attention to you if you are the leader of the business meeting, a style that commands an audience.

 

Sharp also involves a tone. It depends on the situation your voice may need to hit a sharp note if you are a singer or a sharp no to our children when dangerous circumstances occurs like touching a fire. Sharp is necessary and it fits inside the crayon box.

 

Pretty now I like this one, colors of life are pretty, cultural colors bring bright, eloquent flavor the world. Business embraces everyone and so should we. Learning to work together increases our business success like on [IBOTOOLBOX] there are recommended guidelines that include commenting, rating on blogs, liking, and sharing business content like ads. Make you websites attractive to both men and women it will broaden your audience.

 

Dull wow, how many of us fall into this one? Dull indicates someone who is not lively or spirited, listless not bright (dictionary.com).   Everything looks dismal there is no hope it just won’t work. Is this you? I can admit, on occasion I have been dull about a situation and just could not see a new change coming. Internet Marketing can be exciting, adventurous and bright. It will require self-examination. Once you’ve moved all of the clutter from your thoughts the bring kicks in and the light comes on.

 

 

Weird names, there is room for them as well, just like the weird names of crayons. The Crayola Company has changed color names over the years and it has not affected the product. For example, in 1958, Prussian blue was renamed Midnight Blue. The color known as Flesh was renamed Peach in 1962, partially in response to the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. Indian red was renamed Chestnut in 1999 due to concern that some children thought the crayon color represented the skin color (Wikipedia.org).

We all have to learn to leave together like the box of crayons they make it fix.

Framework-Keeping negative thoughts out of your minds framework

 

Anything that happens that’s good, they think, Oh, it’s an accident, when is the roof caving in? You’ve got to get them out of that mental framework.
Dick Butkus

Chicago’s Dick Butkus –a kinetic intelligence body coordinated bear.   Dick Butkus intimidating fierce machine an unstoppable force on the football field leaving his opposition filled with confusion in their mind that their game plan was destroyed.  In their minds what was heard was the name Dick Butkus.  The mental framework of the opponent was destroyed before the game. This is the impact that Dick Butkus possessed on the field.

When things happen that are good except the good and run with it. Butkus prepared his mind for before every game. The roof did not cave in on him. He prepared body and mental strength.  Body strength important it is necessary to endure the challenges of the game. The game of business is the same. Preparation, style and deliverance or additional keys to business success, and developing a strong mental framework is includes knowledge, courage and trusting in your abilities.

A great thinking framework is the challenge of the day. Stimulating the way we think and move in this world dependent on our mental framework. If the roof caves in will you cave with it? The challenge is training your mental framework daily. 

Now according to Gardner (1989), he expanded the definition of intelligence he defined seven type of intelligence. Logical, and Mathematic intelligence, Linguistic intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence, Personal Intelligences and Interpersonal and Intrapersonal intelligence and each of us incorporate more than one of  these at one time (Gardner,1989).

Dick Butkus obviously possessed bodily-kinesthetic and many of the others at that same time. It takes strength and coordination to tackle the other players and bring them down. It took logical thinking to understand the plays of their team and anticipate the moves of the opponent.

The challenge today is to determine your special gift and strengthen the skills you possess. In business you’ll need the ability to communication your linguistic intelligence must include the command of language. You must be able to speak with people. Interpersonal and Intrapersonal skills are needed in developing relationships. Spatial intelligence deals with the ability to see mental images and learn. You can interpret shapes. Each of us has special gifts just tap into them and grow.

Things that happy good should and it does not mean when the roof caves

In, it should have.

Sacrifice-When things go wrong

It’s a human sign when things go wrong when the scent of her lingers and temptations strong Elton John.

Elton John the artist sings these lyrics in the song sacrifice, this song discussed how temptations can wrap itself around our marriage, where deceit comes calling passing through destroying two hearts living in two separate world. How misunderstanding sets in, lost directions and jealousy burns through. Sacrifice simple a word two hearts living in two separate worlds there is no sacrifice at all.

The key is sacrifice the one common thing that everyone can relate too there are things in our lives that require us to offer up ourselves to help and ensure that someone goes before us. For example: at work we me give up our lunch break if there is a deadline to meet, or if a pregnant woman waits in line of the bathroom we step aside. These are small sacrifices are performed daily.  When dad skips a big meeting to spend time with his growing son or daughter, a parent or friend gives up a kidney so one might live. 

The sacrifice that only God gave his only begotten son that who so ever believeth shall have eternal life. In John 15:13, John writes Greater love has no on than this, that he lay down his life for his friends King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) 

Sacrifice it is a simple word. No stones unturned I remember when my dad walked away from high corporate position Vice President of a major business he was asked to step over the ethical lines and he would and could not. The only decision was to sacrifice his income, and start his own business. That decision was the best decision my dad made. He received his independence, freedom and maintained his honor. Sacrifice is a simple word. 

Here’s another quote that relates to sacrifices a team will always appreciate a great individual if he’s willing to sacrifice for the group.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

 What I love about this quote is “sacrifice for the group.” That to me is so important, being available, ready to answer questions, directing the question to an appropriate person if you are unable to give an answer, showing concern while building your teams. Michael Jordan played his heart out, rallied the team, I recall a game when he was so sick but he sacrifice and they won the championship. He felt it important illness and all to support the team because they needed each other to win. Join winning teams and then duplicate their efforts. Sacrifice a simple word.

The Star-Desiring A Star Quality

The Star-Desiring A Star Quality

The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.
Tony Robbins

Quality, I imagine a line that is numbered from one to ten along this line lays a star quality this line tilts depending on communication styles. An understanding of quality will help balance the line. The distinctive characteristic needed to increase ones star quality includes a level of excellence we must achieve.

A star quality begins with an examination of whom we are and why we exist.  Many of us have difficulty with self-examination. What we remember is what others have said our star quality is or should be.  Today I challenge you to stretch your imagination. Where do you see yourselves in five to ten years? Sit back and travel a journey with me.

Louise Suggs one of the first stars of female golf she played golf in 1923.  On January 8th she wins the LPGA LA Golf Open. Now imagine in 1923 a little girl tells her parents, “I want to play golf.”  In 1923 women were to marry have children and stay home. The wealthy during this time expected their children to become doctors and/or lawyers not a golfer. Louise Suggs had a star quality. She imagined at an early age to enter the golfing world.

Just like Florence Nightingale, she expressed to her parents the she would become a nurse and it raised eyebrows. Now, Florence was born into wealth and the thoughts of becoming a nurse were unheard of. Her father was disappointed in the decision she made but she persevered and developed nursing concepts that would be taught in nursing schools around the globe. Discipline, tenacity, and drive are key ingredients to begin the makings of a star quality person.

Wiktionary defines quality as the level of excellence it is determined by health, education and income. Now, this definition begins with health. A star quality person develops a healthy mind and avoids negativities by holding up the shield of faith that quenches every fiery dart.  Education will increase the understanding and prepare it gives us the tools necessary to increase our leverage in all that we do. Equipping the saints with discernment and wisdom, I believe that the beginning wisdom is knowledge.

In order to improve in internet marketing, business knowledge is necessary. Better chooses are made in business when knowledge leads the way.  Income is necessary here on earth. To increase streams of income we must have an understanding of stewardship. You can have all the money in the world but if you don’t know how to manage money, it will fly away like a bird.

A Star quality is achieved when you believe in yourself, prepare with education and, embracing a healthy mind. Equipping yourself with tools to move your business up a level, the challenge today examine yourselves and determine your star quality.    

I leave you today with a quote from Bruce Lee Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one’s potential.
Bruce Lee
 Maximize your potential today become a star quality person leading the way.

A Masterpiece-In Living Color

I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people, who live what they teach, who walk their talk.
Tony Robbins

Bravo, bravo as the hands continue to clap let us give life a standing ovation. I challenge you today join the ranks of people who live what they teach, and talk.

The Challenge: Walking your talk and living life. How is this done? How do we

 

Balance, what we do, and say? Good question the answer varies.  Beliefs,

 

attitudes, values and customs play a performance role in what we say and do.

 

Attitudes will paint a masterpiece, or hide the colors’ in your life.

 

 

To prepare a masterpiece get past the bad habits. Habits that were developed long time ago will destroy a masterpiece. Values and customs come in many colors. It brings unique and special tones to the designing piece. The creative wonders lie deep inside your heart and mind. Values and customs could hide the colors which desire to come out.

 

In nursing it is important to assess the belief system of families. It allows a nurse to assist the family in moving towards change. Often times this is challenging. Family customs, values, attitudes and behaviors can hinder outcomes. I believe it is the same in our businesses, and lives.

 

Making a spectacular experience that will change the course of your business is one key that will unlock a masterpiece in your life.  Behind every great masterpiece are visions, and ideas, a masterpiece in living color.  The business at hand is developing a vision that stretches your creativity.

When a masterpiece is prepared the painter gathers needed equipment, isles, paint, various sizes of paint brushes. The room is set with an atmosphere of colors. There is music that soothes the mind while the artist prepares to dazzle the world. Life develops on canvas speaking to the hearts of followers. As the artist begins he looks out an open window and captures a moment in time that would splash beautiful colors across the canvas and behold what was once a vision mingles with life in living color.

 

An artist speaks life into a painting, beliefs values and customs often come through a masterpiece.  The life of your business begins a vision. Speaking what you teach and walking in what you say are important. The masterpiece of ethics, character, and honesty are areas to review. It is the preparation that leverages your business. What masterpiece are you developing today?

You-Are you the cause of your down Throttle?

You-Are you the cause of your down throttle?

Carolyn Coleman-Grady

You-Are you the cause of your down throttle?

            A restrictive attitude will slow down your business. Constricting, and choking the life out of your business because you are controlling will be the down throttle of your business.
         Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A “you can do it” when things are tough.
Richard M. DeVos

            Regulating the flow of information with a smile and optimism is much better than a restrictive attitude were no one gets to voice their ideas and opinions. A tyrant is a bully, one who gets thrills through watching others crumble to their needs. One who takes pleasure is discouraging rather than encouraging.

            Have you had the opportunity to work under the direction of a controlling futile boss? A boss, who never praised your work, smiled or said thank you? Wow, these are leaders whose expectation is to receive self-gratification and a red carpet every time they enter the room what a horrible way to treat hard working employees.

            Well thank God for independent business owners. The ability to direct your day, promote your services to help others, create environments that make others feel appreciated.  Providing a “you can do it,” attitude is so comforting.  Business owners need a world of optimism a great outlook on thinks, believe in their business, and know the business will work. Those who manipulate and control the throttle with an iron fist and scare tactics can rule their own reign alone. They will choke their own bullet and clog it up until it stops working. Attitude is important to the survival of any business.

            When you use your throttle to modify the setting of your business it works because you are the leader that will explain the purpose of the change. Your business is not thrown to and fro creating confusion. You, provide reasonable explanations for improvement. For example: [IBOTOOLBOX] new and improved features are added, and the owner explains them in our webinars.

            Better Web Builders’ promoted a new feature call Platinum and it was explained how the benefits and how it works. These are leaders who desire growth and success of the members.  If you lack optimism, and a positive outlook on life then you run the risk of developing strenuous and constricting rules that no one but yourself will follow.

 

Here is a quote I’d like to share with you today: If you do not believe you can do it then you have no chance at all.
Arsene Wenger

Life Quotes-Just when you thought throwing in towel was the answer

Carolyn Coleman-Grady

Better Web Builder.

Life Quotes-Just when you though the Towel was the answer

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” Mahatma Gandhi

Speed in Kinematics demonstrates an object as being the magnitude of its velocity the rate of change of its position (Wikipedia.org). The speed of life can cause some of us to throw in the white town indicating we are done.  Like football and basketballs there is a flag or towel waiting to be throw in when things look unfair.

The towel we throw could mean time out, unfair, and/or I have a question.  Depending on the color you throw others will respond. Tossing a towel of disappointment is appropriate when you are taken advantage of. But even then that towel will be retrieved from someone who will throw it back.  Life can become so challenging that many towels will be throw at the same time. I would prefer if a towel is thrown that it comes with an explanation.

Technology, wow what a fast lane.  The escalator going up and down, if you move slowly you will be left behind. The escalator has the potential to move you from level to level. Now the chose belongs to you. Standing at the bottom will never get you to the top. You and the towel you carry will wave good bye to those passing.

There is more to life then increasing speed. It includes family, friends, fun, and excitement. Some of us can be so boring and negative. Building strong relationships is the key to life.  The family fun decreases if cohesive relationships are not built.  Friends will disappear if you don’t connect frequently, and fun just picked its’ towels up and walked away.

Excitement about life is important. Waking up joyous slows down the speed of everything. Life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you gonna get (Forest Gump).

Life is like a box of chocolates, various flavors, colors, textures and each brings a unique flavor to life. The key to life is pick one of the chocolates and enjoy every moment. Explore life and make the exploration exciting and filled with joy. Oh I know there will be dark times, sadness comes to visit but make it a temporary visit, and expect it to leave soon. Allowing sadness to set up shop in our homes gives permission for darkness to recreate our living quarters.

Life quotes

“The feeble tremble before opinion, the foolish defy it, the wise judge it, the skillful direct it,” Jeanne Roland

“Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.” James Conant

Stay connected to life adoring every moment. Make a difference today and choose life.

Flavors-A List of Flavors to Excite your Mind

  

“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor. Truman Capote quotes

What flavor are you using in dealing with perspective prospects? Here is a list of flavors to enhance the spices in your business:

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Vinegar
  • Hot sauce
  • Vanilla
  • Lemon
  • Water

 

Sugar, indicates a sweet demeanors, kind, understanding and willing to embrace ideas on success. It mixes with anyone its’ flavor puts a smile on the faces of many. Sugar is a necessary ingredient to sweeten any situation.

Salt brings strength to the table. The salt of the earth that’s’ those who preserve. A salty flavor also enhances the flavor. Remember the movie Salt with Angelina Jolie a CIA agent who goes on the run when a Russian defector convinces her superiors that she’s double agent sent to assassinate the President. She had to preserve her life, status and position. The multiple trials she experienced along the way she flavored them with her salty attack. In the end she prevailed and did not fail. Salt an ingredient that enhances the taste of anything.

Vinegar is used for many things, house hold products for cleansing, and as a wound cleanser. Its acetic acid and water its fermenting properties creates a flavor so tantalizing it will spice the situation with energy. The smell of vinegar will draw. When we smell this product we walk and say “I smell vinegar where is that smell coming from,” it draws you right to the source. Business needs a vinegar flavor to spice and walk it up.

 

 Hot sauce wow an experience you’d won’t want to miss. This will move your business and quickly. Hot businesses that take of a life of its’ own you can travel and return and find your business still exploding. Your hard work has paid off.  Hot sauces jump starts your business. Failure is not in the plans of this sauces mix. It gets people moving. Put a spicy twist in your business and watch it begin to grow.

Vanilla I did not know that vanilla is a flavoring derived from orchids of the genus vanilla, primarily from the Mexican species (Wikipedia). Vanilla also enhances, it brings other flavors forward. It sooths the mixture, and its smell is used in multiple products like lotions. Now, according to the Urban dictionary, vanilla is unexciting, normal conventional and boring (www.urbandictionary.com). This definition surely defines many internet marketing systems. Unexciting no one seems interested, lacks of communication between teams members or affiliates, no one shows up to the webinars the team is dead, and this can lead to failure.

Lemon has a citrus flavor that enhances the flavor of other ingredients it freshens any situation. It cleanses the mind and rejuvenates. Everyone needs a flesh lemon or two. When we eat lemon heads it causes mouth to twinge it provides a tart like taste. It means some will like your business, and some will not. Keep moving forward offering your flavor to everyone because failure is not an ingredient that mixes with anything.

Water what a soothing, reviving and restoring liquid. It brings life and freshness too. It can be used to cool situations down and bring clarity. It provides cleansing of unclean business dealings. Water brings new growth, over watering will drown the business. It is important to give your team enough information to begin, and continue, watering them as needed and not contributing to their dry out.
