Fishing for Motivation

There are a lot of people writing about motivation on the Web. But I rarely find anything new or really useful. Most people are saying the same things in the same ways. It's not that these methods don't work, it's that they really don't get to the heart of what motivation is and the true mechanics of how it really works.

If someone tells you the steps that are needed to set a goal and keep yourself motivated, that's great. But rarely does that really work for people. That's because…

Quitting at Good

Quitting at good

 

A good friend of mine has a quote he uses that says “If better is possible, then good is not enough.”  So that got the wheels turning in my head and it leads me to the question, why do we quit at good?  Some quit at good because good is enough, or they don’t think that they deserve better or they feel greedy if the want something better. Whatever the reason is we quit sometimes when it is good. This mentality makes me think of “average” and we…

The End of Tax Free Commerce

E-Commerce Surge May Hit Tax Revenue

 

After reading the above article on the WSJ, I can't help but think that this is the beginning of the end of tax free e-commerce.  This is something that was in a gray area of the law for a long time.  As online retail continues to grow faster than state deficits,…

The Only Thing Stopping Me

The only thing keeping me from moving forward is me.  I have ideas, ability, motivation, and understanding. 

 

The only thing stopping me is me.

 

I don't have time...nobody has time...ok, I have time.  I worked 20 hours of OT in each of the last two weeks.  I found time for that, I can find time for this.

 

The only thing in my way is me.

 

Nothing I fear could or would happen is worse than the regret I will feel if I do nothing.  I…

Listen

He was circling the indoor track. He was moving slow, but steady. I’m not sure how old he was…I would estimate about 80 years old.



One time when he went by the weight rack where I was, I spoke to him. I can’t remember what I said…probably one of my silly standard sayings like ‘You better slow down…

How to Choose the Right Blogging Model - Part 3

So far we have discussed two blogging models that you can use. By models I am referring to strategy. Regardless of which strategy you choose there is no easy road. Any program or software that tells you that you can create a $10,000 month income in your first 90 days of blogging is a flat out lie. There are many people online who are professional sellers of information but all they sell is a dream. I have been there and bought into some of the dreams. Things did not start working for me…

"Spring Thaw?"~GREEN Inspirations~February 16, 2011

Here in Western Pennsylvania, we are having a little bit of a "spring thaw"...Temperatures will be in the low 50's for the next few days...Maybe the Groundhog was right, spring is just around the corner (at least a taste of it for now!)...If the weather is like this in your area, get out there and take a walk or at least check out your yard/home for any winter weather damage that you can repair/plan to repair… Continue

How to Choose the Right Blogging Model - Part 2

Yesterday we talked about one way to operate and start a blogging business. As a quick recap, basically, you choose 10 or more things that you have a passion for. Remember, they don't necessarily have to be things that you can right a 1,000 blog post about. I gave you the example of mind mapping. Mind mapping is proabably something that I caould blog about for a while but eventually I would run out of things to say. That does not mean that it is a bad thing. If I wrote 10 good articles on the… Continue

Start Up CPA

Hello,

 

I was just blessed with passing my CPA and I want to start consulting/side business.  I am looking to help other firms with anything accounting based.  I have reached out to local firms to see if I can fill some heavy season gaps, but I am not getting any responses.  If any other CPA's are on here, I would love to chat via this forum on ideas to expand myself into my passion "Accounting". 

 

Best regards,

Selling Yourself When You're Not a "Salesperson"

Does the advice, "you have to sell yourself",  make your stomach flip a little? Or perhaps you think of an old salesman stereotype that is the opposite of who you are and the word "sales" doesn't approach anything you've done in your work experience-to-date.

 

Relax.  I'm going to help you out.

 

I've spent my entire career on the sales side of the house, working in medium to large businesses.  I was once hired by a large manufacturing company that had a small…

What Makes A Good Story - Let's Blog Off

We all love a good story. The good guy, the bad guy, the damsel in distress. Will they fall in love, or not. Is he reunited with his family?



Can we all agree on what makes a good ending? My wife and I sure can't. I like stories that don't really end. We saw "Inception" last year and I loved the…

It is important that you enjoy what you do - All hard work brings a profit

You spend the majority of your working hours on earth at work and God only give you so many days on this earth until you reach you final destination ( I hope that’s heaven if you have accepted Jesus are your Lord).

 

In my field I spend 8-10-12 hours a day sometime to 02am in the morning. It is important that you enjoy what you do with a level of God given peace.

Btw.... having a peace and joy of the work that you do will be the one of the best witnessing tool in your…

Mental Health...

QUOTE:

"A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with his surroundings."

INSPIRATION:

I feel that this area is much overlooked by many as being healthy and that is our mental health. When we are at peace with the world and there is joy in our hearts then…
