Skills and Confidence-How to bridge them together

 

Skills and confidence is an unconquered army. –George Herbert

 

How does one develop skills and confidence in communicating and developing relationships?  The aim of this blog is to discuss appropriate engaging through the written word with others.  It is easy to become vulnerable to content posted on a daily bases.  There are various levels of experience in writing each level brings unique information.  Level one it is important to introduce yourself.  Engaging with others takes time.  Sharing short post about you allows the readers to get to know you. It could include hobbies, interest, family fun times and even life experiences.

 

What I have found in reading many blogs and post, is people don’t engage the reader.  Readers like to imagine, dream and place themselves in the content.  The skills of a writer begin with skillful creativity. You may say, “But I’m not an expert writer, nor am I. I like to place my thoughts on paper, create situations that illicit discussion after all we all love the comments others post on our written blogs. There is a blog, I love to follow, it is informative, exciting and it creates a dream of traveling. The blogger is customtripplanning   http://acustomtripplanning.com/ Today she posted a blog on Road Warrior A cycling experience.  This is a blogger to follow. As I read her blog, I imagined the bike cycling I thought about skills and confidence.

 

A cyclist possesses skills, strong legs, respiratory system, endurance and a will to compete.  Now I know we have people who love to ride a bike, but these cyclers have a compassion for cycling. Check out her blog when you have a moment. This blogger has received blog awards.  The skillful writing of customtripplanning will bring you joy.  A reader will always find that one sentence or word that pops right out and brightens their day.  Blogging is fun, it takes practice. Write on topics that interest you. Begin your journey.  Writing is a skill and confidence comes over time.  Write every day. Watch your stores unfold.  Fear will create a block but hit those keys anyway.  Dream, focus and write. You will find your niche and others will follow.

Pictures of Rainbows-Where does it lead you

I imagine a rainbow covering a portion of the sky feeling it with colors that represent so many things for me.  See I’ve been taught that every time you see a rainbow it is a reminder of God.  He led his people out of bondage.  I get really choked up with the thought of barriers that hinder our progress.  Rainbows are so full of wonders.  Rainbows work in a natural beautiful effect. The colors display a perfect band with bows that develop form. That form intrigues the eye.

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
Lord Byron
Rainbows come after a storm it a phenomenon of light, its perception by the physical senses and the conceptual mind which produces the appearance of spectral band of colors. (Wikiquote).

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high there is a land called marketing, it is multifaceted with dimensions that run deep and wide.  Its’ integral parts include networking, and connections.   This amazing band of rainbows stimulates the field of communication leaving many speechless.  The surrounding parts include colorful bands that are so strong that nothing negative can penetrate.  As the marketing rainbow flows from city to state from state to country it leaves the colors dripping and array of beautify. 

Business leaders all over the world engulf the multiple flavors that flow freely from each strand.   The troubles that come along with business melt away by the sweetness of the rainbow that is way up high.  The storm that blew everything you owned away returns with a variety of magic and wonder.  The spectral band of colors flow freely coast to coast brightening the day.  The rainbow colors that can illuminate the sky are amazing leaving excitement, and adventure along the way.

I was listening to somewhere over the rainbow song by Eva Cassidy her sultry voice and smooth sound engulfed my imagination.  I was surrounded by fields of green tall grass, sun rising and I looked up high in the sky and a beautiful rainbow hovered over me.  It put a smile on my face that would brighten a darken room.  I like a peaceful matter of doing business one where its ok to make mistakes and correct them.  No one is perfect but plan to walk unto perfection.  The rainbow that is somewhere way up high gives a sense of joy.

 Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
Lord Byron

The daily progress-A theatrical performance

The world has become increasing better in terms of science, and technology (Wikipedia.org).

Progress is made daily.  When there are individual accomplishments a theatrical performance is needed.  Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Benjamin Franklin

Think about it, if Benjamin Franklin decided not to progress his concept on improving vision we may not have the bifocals.  He had a vision problem to improve this deficit, experts state, he got tired of taking his glasses off and putting them on, so he broke them in half created a single lens and today we call them bifocals.

It is also noted that his brother had urinary programs related to kidney stones.  To reduce his brothers’ discomfort he developed a flexible urinary catheter that appears to be the first in America (sin.fi.edu/franklin/inventor/inventor.html)

Of course we cannot forget the progress of the kite, and the discovery of his lightening rod.  A daily progression through the world of inventions deserves celebration.

Alexander Graham Bell he and Elisha Gray discovered a method to move telegrams into speech through a wire electric device called the telephone. The telephone has evolved over the years and now we have cell phones. What a great celebration, I can imagine in the years to come new and exciting devices to communicate will develop.

Franklin and Bell believed in individual success, they were both intrigued by inventions and believed in their abilities.  Success begins with you, in your mind.  It can take on a life of its’ on.  

Continual progress towards improvement, success, and accomplishments will have meaning.  Put your best foot forward and take strives to make your desires come true.  Improvement, what are you implementing to improve your business? What strives have you taken to succeed and make your accomplishments meaningful. 

 It may mean reading business eBooks, viewing videos, attending webinars and asking questions of those who have become successful. A successful mind is developed, exercising your and practicing good habits helps. Joining forces with experts is necessary.  Improving, succeeding and accomplishments will stand at your door daily and you will celebrate at the end of the day.  Make your day progressive. 

Engage in your success daily, strategies that improve your business and bring you closer to your goals.  Stay connected with others who wish you the best.

Eye-The eye that is out of focus

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Mark Twain

Hi, Carolyn Coleman-Grady here. Daily challenges cloud our focus and causes confusion, and frustration.  Many of us have lost focus on what is important.   I thought Mark Twain stated it well.  You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.

What does that mean to you?   I believe when the imagination is cloudy and fogged up we hit bricks and walls leaving us senseless.  When a puff of smoke is blown in your face do you blow it out of the way? Or bathe in its surrounding.  Is it an overcast day for you?  When there is clouds and fog we don’t see well some of us turn on the fog lights which brightens up our pathway.  Others travel day by day wondering in clouds that vaporizes their vision.

Imagine an aquarium of beautiful exotic fish, salt water fish but they live in a tank full of cloudy water, algae everywhere.  Who will enjoy them? No one will enjoy them until you clean up the tank.  To clean the tank you purify, treat and clear the way for a fresh new look.    Once the water is clear, clean and bright you focus on the beauty of the tank.  Fog is defined as a condensed water vapor in cloudlike masses lying close to the ground and limiting visibility. (www.answers.com).

Limiting visibility comes from a variety of attitudes, behaviors and perceptions.  Attitudes can limit our eyes from imagining.  There are those who insist on doing business their way.  I’m sure you’ve heard wonderful people say “no I want do it this way, it don’t work your way.”  There is something to say about the quote, “there is more than one way to skin a cat.”  Be open to new ideas wake up your imagination to possibilities.  Let your eyes see beyond the clouds and fog that has surrounded you.  If Thomas Jefferson did not see himself as President he would not have been,  If Michael Jordon believed what he was told, “you are not a good  basketball player,”  If I had listen to my LVN instructor I would not have become a Registered Nurse.  The list could go on.  We must see with open clear defining eyes recognizing our own potential say hello to clarity, and goodbye to the clouds which dim your vision.

Sacrifice-When things go wrong

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.

Good-Movies what are you looking for today?

 

“Captain Renault: What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?

Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert.

Rich: I was misinformed.” (http://www.great-quotes.com/quotes/movie/Casablanca)

This quote is form the movie Casablanca. One of my favorite movies, I like to ask this question when someone joins my business. I wanted to know what made them click the link. This is a great question. A question to ask yourself before joining and one to asked once you join.

Rick was specific he’s stated he traveled to Casablanca for his health for the waters. Which suggest a miracle would happen with the waters. We must have the drive and expectation before we join any business. MLM requires dedication, energy, and a drive to win. In this quote, Rick believed he would win over his unhealthy condition if he made it to the waters.

Then came this real deal, Captain Renault asked a question what waters? What waters? We’re in the desert. Oops here comes the disbelief, most of us know that water is very difficult to find in the desert all the dry, sand you want is readily available but what about the water. Rick responds I was misinformed.

How many of us have been missed informed once we clicked the link and joined an internet business. Promises made, nothing happens and the up-line is invisible. No one is available to speak with you, and you were lead to the water and, you received a mouth full of sand. It can be so frustrating but, every business is not like that.

There are honest, true net-work marketing businesses that are looking to help you become successful. My suggestion is align with people who understand marketing get the facts before joining, ask questions and keep closely to you up-lines. There are many marketing businesses that value your business and want to see your businesses grow. Key steps to remember.

  1. View the videos (watch them more than once)
  2. Write down any questions you may have
  3. Keep in touch with you up-line
  4. Attend the webinars
  5. Once you join update your knowledge on changes and new features in the business

Internet Marketing is exciting, fun and rewarding; it takes work on your part, dedication, and endurance. While you look for the water that may not exist in the desert, remember when you fine the water share it with others and watch the well fill up and overflow. Good luck in your new businesses; I wish you all the best.
