Contemplating Life Past – Living Life by Your Terms

Contemplating Life Past – Living Life by Your Terms

 Some days we sit back and contemplate our life don’t we? (well more so when we get a  little older  and we wonder where all those years have gone.

 I looked at the date today and realised that I married my first wife 35 years ago today! It is  simply the time elapsed since then that I was remembering and what I have achieved in  those 35 years, culminating on where I am now.

 Circumstances and events may have depleted me of certain physical assets and financial  security. Yet I believe through this process, I have enriched my life. I have secured who I  am, who I want to be and who I wish to share my life with. It is only then that you realise  that society has indoctrinated us all into believing that success and happiness is based on  this false economy of earn more, spend more, buy more and repeat!.

 You can’t buy happiness. It is a state of mind and I have that happiness. It is shared with  someone very special. And I choose to share my life with others who have stumbled upon  the same conclusion.

Know this! The choice is yours if you choose to stand up and make that choice! So make  your choice and live the life you wish to live. Not how others think you should live it.

                 “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” ~ Rumi ~

 And furthermore, promise me this! Feel the true richness of life from deep within your  heart and not  some superficial icing on life that we have been brainwashed into believing.  Therefore, seek what is within as the Universe is within you! Thus feel the warmth  and  you shall find it  there!

And most importantly, stop and think for a moment longer. This so called ‘norm’ has really  only been in existence  for the last 60 years or so and sponsored by the corporate Western  world and their  preachers, the politicians.

 Life is a compromise at times but never compromise your true values and the richness of  life itself…….

Dreams of the Bottom Billion – A New Approach To Curing World Poverty | Anik Singal

 

Dreams of the Bottom Billion –
A New Approach To Curing World Poverty
~Anik Singal~

 

GANDHI you must be the change you wish to see in the world poverty

Today I  am sharing a rather unique idea by my colleague Anik Singal. Watch the video! Thought provoking! … Michael

Hey!

Since I was a small child, my Father had always instilled the sheer importance of EDUCATION.

Since I was around 10 years old, I would go around saying that I wanted to build SCHOOLS all over the World and help children who couldn’t go to school.

A dream, but as I grew up, I started realizing just how BIG the problem really is.

3 Billion+ people in this World live on less than $2.50 a DAY…

After learning this – my wife and I teamed up with an amazing couple in India and we started on a mission to do our part. We wanted to figure out a MODEL that could work all over the World… and FIX this problem.

After 6 schools … 600+ children … 4,500+ community members…

We think we’ve found the PERFECT MODEL!

SO, WHAT WAS MY DREAM THE LAST 4 YEARS?

I wanted to get on a TED stage and show everyone my new CURE for Poverty.

I want to shake the entire Non-Profit sector up and I think the way we are approaching World Poverty is completely wrong. So, I’m proud to announce that I finally got my chance!

I recently spoke on a TEDx stage about my approach to curing World Poverty! I’ll even give you numbers and PROOF that you just can’t deny!

LIVE before your eyes – watch this talk and you won’t have a choice but to believe it!

TED Talk – My New Approach To Curing World Poverty…

But I could REALLY use your help getting this message out there…

The more people that see this TED talk, the more my wife & I can do. We can build even more schools….reach more children….. help more people!

Take Action!

So, here’s what I’m asking from you…

#1 – Please go and watch the Video…
#2 – Please click on the
THUMBS UP…
#3 – Please leave a comment
#4 – Please share this video with someone you know!

I really want to get this message out. I think we can change the World together.

Watch TED Talk – Dreams of The Bottom Billion – My New Approach To Curing World Poverty…

Thank you so much!

Digital Information Products are the go and are Our Future! Don’t get left behind…..

Today’s post was inspired by a message from one of my Mentors
Matt Lloyd, CEO of MOBE (My Online Business Education). 

Now I am a Titanium Business Consultant for MOBE. Yet the purpose of my blog today is to share with you the mindset and apparent reluctance exhibited by some people when it comes to purchasing or trusting in digital information products. 

My business structure is based on digital information products. These include my published Amazon Kindle Books and my Business Education material with over 100 courses and resources available to you through my partnership with MOBE.

” As someone who markets digital information online, you will from time to time meet people who ridicule the idea of paying money in exchange for something they can’t hold in their hand.

Such people don’t understand the potential value of ideas—information you can use to do things, including making money.” Matt Lloyd

This does apply in some cases and in particular to those of an ‘maturing ‘ age   The younger ones have mostly accepted that we are already well and truly in the ‘Information Age’ (and yes, many of us older ones like me have also! )

” The kind of person who argues that buying digital information is essentially buying nothing (because you can’t hold it in your hand) is the same kind of person who would rather hold on to his $100 and suffer in freezing temperatures—perhaps become ill or even die—because it doesn’t buy him something he can hold in his hand.”

Indeed…. and perhaps they will never change. Yet let us look at just some examples of where one pays for ‘Information’ and I share the following from Matt Lloyd with you here:

” Digital information and downloads are the most modern method for doing something we’ve been doing for centuries: paying people for their knowledge and experience. Here are a few examples of that:

  • Education. You can pay five or six figures for a college education. You aren’t paying all that cash just for that piece of paper you get at the end, are you?
  • Lawyers. It can be quite costly to hire a lawyer to handle your will, divorce, incorporation, or to defend you in a legal matter. What do you carry out of their office in exchange?
  • Consultants. You hire them to advise you on how to expand your business or how to redecorate your home. Even a personal trainer is a consultant for your physical improvement. What do you take delivery of after you pay them?
  • Tax preparers. Unless you truly love to do your own taxes, most of us are more than grateful to be able to pay an expert to do it for us and, with electronic filing, walk out their office completely “empty-handed.”
  • Plumbers, mechanics. They often give you the benefit of their knowledge, even if they don’t have to replace parts.
  • Movies, concerts, sporting events. You buy a ticket and attend the show or event and all you get for the price of your ticket is an experience—nothing you can put in your hand or your pocket (except the actual ticket).”

Digital Products offer so much more!

Therefore we have already been accustomed to this type of service only that now there is so much more that is being offered via the Internet the World over..

I know that from when I first discovered the Net that my knowledge and skills have been enhanced immensely. The people I have met ‘online’and continue to learn from in life, is totally amazing. AND I have grasped this opportunity with both hands and learnt what I can in order to continually improve upon my experiences and knowledge.

So if you have had some reluctance in expanding your horizons on the Net, then it is time to push out from your comfort zone as you are missing out on so much information and personal growth.  I am here to assist you and guide you. So please do not be afraid to ask for guidance

One last question for you…. Have you read my E-books listed on Amazon yet? Check them out HERE!

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

My boss tried to kill me (and what I did to him next)

True story: Back in 2007, I was flying a routine logistics mission with my commanding officer who, like me, was a combat-decorated and very seasoned aviator.

The mission was simple: fly from sunny San Diego to Fresno, California.

Easy day.

Except…

When we took off out of San Diego, it was the typical postcard weather: sunny, light breeze off the ocean, gorgeous.

When we approached Fresno an hour later…dense fog. For miles. And it was our turn to land.

My commanding officer (“Skipper” as we called him) was flying the approach while I sat in the right seat and backed him up by placing my hands gently on the controls.

As we descended, we plunged straight into the dense fog and entered the disorienting world of instrument flight; the Skipper was laser focused on the instruments as I kept a watchful eye out the window for the moment we broke through the fog.

And then, it happened. The most terrifying moment of my entire flight career.

I felt the Skipper pull a little too much power, and the aircraft sank at an alarming rate of decent. As we fell out of the fog, my heart slammed to a stop as I looked up to see…a tree.

Instinctively, I yelled, “WAVE OFF!” and shoved the throttles full forward.

Skipper pulled back on the controls and the airplane roared to the sky…missing the ground by mere feet.

We came within a fraction of a second of slamming into the ground, and leaving behind widows, orphans and a smoking hole in the ground.

There was no time to discuss, not time to negotiate and no time to consider options. We survived a near catastrophe because of a very important behavior: I questioned my boss’s authority.

And yes, he openly encouraged that. That’s what exceptional Leaders do.

Of course, there’s a “right” way and a host of ineffective ways to do it. And I discuss this in-depth on today’s episode of The High-Altitude Mentorship Show™ podcast:


http://jtdebolt.com/entrepreneurship/why-you-should-question-authority/

Look, this is an important trait for High-Performers, especially in today’s “sheeple” society, where most people blindly follow celebrities, politicians and self-appointed “experts”.

Just because the “gurus” and “thought leaders” are pumping others full of sentiment and “follow your bliss” propaganda doesn’t mean you have eat what they’re shoveling.

Think critically.
Wake up.
Keep your head on a swivel.
And question these “experts” always.

Including (and especially) me.

It may never come down to a life-and-death decision, but questioning authority will at the very least keep you from falling asleep at the wheel, blindly following flimsy rhetoric and prevent you from creating a “smoking hole” in the ground of your business, career or life.

You have my permission to question authority (not that you needed it). Now we’ll see what you do with it.

Fly High. Fly Fast. Fly Far.

Rich Dad Poor Dad- 4 Pillars of a Good Life – Wealth

learn-to-create-your-dream                                Rich Dad Poor Dad- 4 Pillars of a Good Life – Wealth 

Today i am sharing with you a video from my Youtube  Channel featuring Robert Kiyosaki on the Oprah Winfrey Show a few years ago.

Robert Toru Kiyosaki (born April 8, 1947) is an American businessman, investor, self-helpauthor, educator, motivational speaker, financial literacy activist, financial commentator, and radio personality. Kiyosaki is the founder of the Rich Dad Company, a private financial education company that provides personal financial and business education to people through books, games, seminars, blogs, coaching, and workshops.[3] He is also the creator of the Cashflow board and software games to educate adults and children business and financial concepts…. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I agree with Robert’s philosophy and it continues to ring true. It is our ‘mindset’ that holds many of us back from achieving our full potential. We need to break away from the archaic education system that teaches us to be ’employees/followers/serfs/workers’. We have been brainwashed to serve others. Time to serve OURSELVES!

Amazon Kindle                                                     Indie Author – a Self Publishing Author 

Indie Authors (Indie being a short form of Independent) are basically ‘If you see yourself as the creative director of your books, from concept to completion and beyond, then you’re Indie.”

There is some debate  over the use of this term but for me I consider myself an ‘Indie Author’ as I conceive the idea, write the book, self publish it and promote and sell my work.

And talking of work and writing, I am currently in the process of writing about ‘Self Publishing with Kindle Self Publishing and it is my intention to have it out early May! A great mothers day present 🙂 Or if you mother isn’t into writing her own books how about reading some of my others!!! 😉 CLICK HERE

Twists of Fate

“Twists of Fate” is available NOW on Amazon.com as an Ebook (Kindle)
Amazon USA Link
Amazon Australia Link
Amazon UK Link

Twists of Fate is a spellbinding collection of 5 short stories set in the land down-under by Australian Author Michael E Thornley. The decisions and consequent outcomes made by the individual characters gives credence to the saying ” You Reap what you Sow’.

However, the choices that we make in life may not necessarily provide us with the outcome we desire. Yet it may reward us with the future we deserve, whether we wish it or not!. So be careful what you wish for as it just may come true!

Written in the narrative style of the ‘Twilight Zone’ the ‘Twists of Fate’ may not be what you expected. It certainly was not what the characters in the book expected!… that is part of the charm and enjoyment of this series of short stories by Author Michael E Thornley.
