I MUST CONFESS

I have to be really honest about life and admit that at times I feel really flustered with tireless musings of people who seem to think that the world owes them something; that the universe somehow should always come to their rescue, and that they should never have to see a day of indifference. How sad it must be for one to actually feel that somehow there is real estate that belongs to them and them only! And that their needs are more important than that of any other human being on planet Earth; an ego which is that high can lead to a mirthless despicable state of self destruction in quick time.
 
I firmly believe that we are the true guardians of our destiny, that we have the right to enhance the space we occupy to fulfil a divine purpose, that the air we breathe was reserved for our diaphragms, that the voice we possess is our sacred instrument to build relationships and to worship an awesomely amazing God. I believe that we are heavenly products with earthly survival kits built in by the Eternal Designer, that our true self is protected by our false self because we pause too often to please the mundane and the mediocre.
 
We are indelibly caught up in the restraints that offer temporary and unreal relief, we fear for tomorrow and it is not even promised to us, we bring our neighbours to their knees with unscrupulous insanities and selfish meanderings. What is the meaning of life we ask. if every day we try so hard to make two ends meet and yet they seem to be strangers waving goodbye? How are we suppose to strive in a world of uncertainty and outlandish generational curses that seem to suppress our imaginations until they die for lack of air?
 
Alas! there must be hope, there must be a time and a place where we can become, where we can share unbiased love and hope, where we can surface and breathe freedom and delight in the successes of each other. Where we can celebrate even if we did not win, and where we can congratulate even if we were last in the race. We were created to compliment each other and to form partnerships with nature and the creatures of this earthly realm. We have within us the power to rise to the pinnacle of civilisation, and to contribute to the well being and mastery of our designated gifts  as we strive for unbridled excellence.
 
The kind of excellence that sows seeds of charity and benevolence, and that reaps harvests of forgiveness and acceptance in quantum proportions never to bow to the merchants of degradation and melancholy. Never to surrender to the dark spirits of oppression and the sightless institutions of segregation, but to rise in unison to boundless heights of integrity and countless levels of this kaleidoscope of human microcosm, thus enlightening the pathway to integration and global unity.

E-commerce Affiliates

I have stumbled upon a wealth of information on how to produce and succeed as an online store owner and I would like to share it with you. This platform has many gateways and up to 94,000 different products available which you can promote on your own platform, as well as any original or personal products that you may have to sell. What is even more amazing is that you can join for free, and have access to millions of registered members as well as your own market; e.g. friends, family and associates.
 
You want to be part of an organisation where the people involved are only concerned about one thing and one thing only; success, the main point of being involved in any kind of business is to succeed, and this is the catalyst that drives this organisation to bring about the necessary products and marketing or promotional gateways for you to achieve your dream. We all have visions and goals of being better than where we are, some of us have grander thoughts than others, but we all hope for the opportunity to realise our dreams.
 
I have no doubt in my mind that this is it, I say that because I have seen the success first hand within a couple of months, bear in mind that you have to have a plan, and you have to work the plan, but the support with information and real people are all there. You have to be committed to anything if you want it to work, and just like any business, this will take some time and effort, but the end result is that you will receive just what you put into it. I say to people all the time that the only limit to their success is them. If you want it bad enough, then the limit is only in your mind, so give this a shot at no cost to you, and see if this is the right platform for your future success.

To Succeed-To Discover

I wrote a novel awhile back and named it " To Lose A Dream", when asked by my sister why I named it that instead of the other way around, I told her that I wanted my writing to appear as a challenge to whoever read it. she laughed at the irony, but understood the intent; the title itself was meant to be the introduction to the novel, and tempt the reader to see beyond the introduction to the actual body. Infinitely the level of curiosity was meant to be elevated by what was a hidden meaning; if you know what I mean.
 
When I began writing, there was a lot of stuff that I needed to share, to get off my chest and so the information was just flowing like a leaking faucet. Research was minimal at most because I had ample motivation, and the information was more personal then generic, sharing my experience with the world was all that mattered. I basically wanted to start a relationship with an audience of people who could identify with what I was writing and sharing, this meant a lot to me at the time, and floods of relief came to my soul as with every line I felt release.
 
I felt as if I had to share what to me was real and what was responsible for the level of success I had achieved, the success I'm referring to had nothing to do with fame and fortune, but rather the internal modification and rebuilding of one's self to the point where you learn to manage adversity and overcome selfishness. You see my friends I discovered that the more I sought to justify myself and my existence on this planet, is the further away I was stepping from the Divine plan of success and life. It begins with endless hours of introspection and admittance, and never ends until you die. Discovering and dealing with the real you is the task of a lifetime, and it never allows you the opportunity to escape.
 
The inner peace you feel is something that's priceless and cannot be replaced by material relics that are temporary and devoid of feelings, however with that sense of realisation comes the ability to better market what you are blessed to possess, and therein lies the icing on the cake, fulfilment that can now be conveyed to an audience of people. You get the benefit of knowing that you can boldly put you on the market as naked as you were born, and not be afraid of what the consequences might be, because what they receive is now coming from a place of deep conviction and relief. As a result when you care enough to share enough, people will respond positively and your message will resonate with those who still believe that they can and will truly succeed.

One of the best; if not the best monetisation platforms on the planet is infolinks, they offer more varied and diverse ways to make money on your site  than their competitors. It is more like being an affiliate than a marketing source, they take every angle of your site and use as a means of promoting money making content.
 
Infolinks has just introduced premium optimization which allows them to survey your site ensuring that it can be maximised by the best publishers, and affords you the opportunity to get double your monthly earnings. Additionally you can refer a friend for double earnings as well; what is more encouraging is that your site is reviewed and then can be fine tuned to accommodate publishers with good potential income; they work with you. It's personal.
 
Infolinks creates a more competitive and participating environment by allowing the site owner to enter into several in house competitions with good rewards, they basically test your ability to see how current you are with media marketing trends. This way too, they can also get reviews for placement of publishers on your website.  That's not all; we are also encouraged to do a video on our experience with infolinks, and they are entered in a pool as well to survey and possibly be  published.
 
There are some new look features like the ad saver, intent intelligence, in text ads, in Tag and in Frame, Facebook connect, and their upgraded WordPress plug in.  They have single handed revolutionised the site monetisation industry, and have made it even more easier to generate good monthly income from a variety of marketers and publishers. They have opened up more web spaces and markets for website advertising.
 
So just like they did for me infolinks can light up your website advertising sections and bring some serious money into your pocket every month, you need to try them just for the experience and see for your self how this new thrust can work wonders for your site by increased traffic as well as more recognition. I recommend Infolinks for any publisher, follow this video for more information. Click on the following link today and get your chance to earn.

The Real You-Spirit Man


It maybe pretty difficult for some of us to imagine the complex reality that explains and defines man, as a result we have seen a number of theories coming from a variety of sources, of how man came into being and now exist. Some are worthy of thought and much discussion, whilst others are mere speculation for imaginary flirtation, and lies in our desire to find ourselves but all in the wrong direction.
It is no secret that there is and indeed must be some supreme order of existence for the universe to be suspended in form and sequence as we know it today; the question is, who or what is that existence? Without being too religious but definitely spiritual I can say boldly that this is the base of all life and indeed the spirit being that is man. Who or what is responsible for this divine order that is called life?
Let's look at the source of knowledge and great wisdom; the Bible, in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, all He did was speak the Word and what he said came into being. Then in Genesis 2 and 7 it says: "And The Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and  breathed into His nostrils The Breath of Life, and man became a living soul."
The significance of this scripture shows how man came into being, and if God is a spirit; which He is, then what He breathed into man was the Spirit of Life. It stands to reason therefore that if man is tripartite meaning, body spirit and soul, then the real you is not really who you see in the mirror, but rather the inner being who determines what the outer man looks like.
Have you ever wondered why when you spend time in a particular place whether it be a room or a car, even after you have not been there for a while and someone enters, they can somehow identify an odour or a presence like yours? Or maybe you lost a loved one and for some time after they have gone, you can swear they were still there?
There is a reason for all of that and it simply is a matter of how strong the person's spirit was when they were alive. If you want to bring the real you to the fore, then you need to come to terms with the spiritual part of your life; build a relationship with the greatest Spirit alive. The Spirit of The Living God. Then and only then can the real purpose for the real you being here can become clear and concise.
It is in finding the true source of all existence that we can  find the real peace we seek each day, it is in growing familiar with the Master of the universe, that we can become better citizens of planet earth. The real you awaits that marvellous connection with it's maker, do not deprive yourself of this the greatest discovery of all our lives, it is time to get real.

The best part of life is waking up in the morning  being fully aware of the fact that you are in the same condition physically with which you went to sleep in, we are not in the position to decide how we awake; that belongs to God. However we can decide how we go to sleep, we can be at peace with ourselves and the Creator, or we can choose to be troubled with the cares of this life, and the sometimes aimless quarrels and arguments we have with each other.

One only has twenty four hours to get it right, and at times it seems as though we need more to finish tasks we have set for ourselves, man has lost the best times of his life seeking and pursuing endangered projects, that lead to paths of spiritual emptiness and abject boredom. We have exercised poor and selfish judgements based mainly on our carnal limitations, and our endemic biases. The end result is more than often negate of rewards and fulfilment.

If you possess a gift or a talent my friend, it is not for your gain and your gain alone, but rather for the main purpose of sharing with those less endowed so that we can all have a part of the best that God has given. Man is basically selfish and we are hard  pressed to admit it but we are, I often find myself having to reign in my self centred disposed nature, as I strive to come to terms with the fact that all that I have was given to me for a purpose. Not to fulfil my needs in whole but in part, and then to share with someone in need.

You never truly know how tomorrow may turn out to be or what it might bring, why then can't we sow seeds of love humility and progress? Why can't we see beyond the mere tone of a skin that's doomed to fade and die? Why can't we develop simple appreciations for life and the infallible beauty it creates daily in sunsets and rainbows?  We have so lost our way! seeking momentarily only what can superficially satisfy, but not satiate. Everyone has a price, and there are things that you and I would do anything for and to have, don't deny it, it is the way we are wired.

The real battle lies not in our ability to overcome ourselves, but rather in our most conscious efforts to accept and deal with what we are or who we have become. Victory in this life and success has a template and a direction, and we are all challenged to accept them as we progress daily, we cannot enforce our dreams and hopes on anyone but ourselves, they are our burdens not anyone else's.
We are responsible for the price that we certainly must pay for the destiny we have chosen, not the unsuspecting and innocent neighbour who inadvertently ends up in our path.

If God accepts us just as we are with all our faults and shortcomings, why then do we place burdens on others to rise to heights of moral and ethic values, while we bask in the shadows of vanity and deceit? Deceiving ourselves first and then our loved ones.  We owe it to the Creator (GOD) to be givers instead of takers, to be sharers instead of hoarders, to depart from negative criticism and rather gravitate to positive endearments. Then and only then can we fall asleep with at least the mind set that we have done all that we can to love and be loved, as all of us are desperately in need of.

7 Ways To Make Money Online

An opt-in list can be quite crucial to any site or internet based company. Even for a small venture such as a niche profit site an opt-in list can make a world of difference and also add some extra income for your pocket. Rarely would you see an e-commerce site, big or small, that is without an opt-in list.

An opt-in list allows for a company to market their wares and site via an e-mail. With an opt-in list, a site and a subscriber consents to sending and receiving a newsletter from your company. Through this, you can keep your subscribers abreast of what is currently available in your site as well as whatever is coming out.

And because there is mutual consent between the two parties, any mail sent to the list is not considered as spam mail. There is a great number of successfully read promotional materials such as catalogues, newsletters and such that are sent because the subscribers themselves have signed up for them, meaning, they do want to be sent those items.

Building a list is crucial, only a small percentage actually subscribes for an opt-in list. Many people find promotional mails annoying but of you provide a good newsletter or promotional material,  you will see your list build up and grow. You can also achieve this by having good content on your site. If people like what they see and read on your site, then they surely would want more. Newsletters would be a way to attract them back to your site. A little teaser or appetizer if you will.

But other than marketing your wares and your services, an opt-in list can also be used to earn extra profit. Not all lists can be used though. It would be good to first build a successful list with a huge number of subscribers. The more subscribers you have, the more money you can get. Here are seven ways to make money using nothing more than your list.

1) Place advertisements. There are many corporations who will be willing to pay to put their banners and ads on a list with many subscribers. Selling or renting out lists is not a good idea so rather than doing that, many companies would just rather place ads with lists that have a huge subscriber base. Your newsletter could be placed with many ads and each one spells money.

2) Have affiliations with other companies that have at least a semblance or relation to what your site is about. Here other companies will provide links and brief descriptions of what they offer, products and services. With every click made on the link that directs or leads a subscriber from your list to their site, the company will pay you. This P4P or pay for performance.

3) Make deals with other companies by asking for a small percentage of sales done through your list. With every sale done by customers that have come from your list and have gone there because of your newsletter, the other company will pay you a small percentage of your sales. The more people who buys from them, the more earnings you get.

4) You may also get products from other sites on a consignment basis and sell them to your list via  your newsletter. Place descriptions, articles and photos of the product in your newsletter. There will be those who will buy from you and when that happens, you can order the product from the other site and sell it to your buyer.

5) Sell e-books or a compilation of your articles on your list. Manuals and how-to articles are in great demand. Many people will be willing to shell out money to gain knowledge about a certain topic and subject. With your existing list trusting your expertise in that area, an e-book could be offered and sold or used as an incentive.

6) Create a network out of your list. Get people to invite more people to view your site and subscribe to your list. The larger your list is, the more people will be able to click on your links and affiliate links as well as make your advertisement rates higher.

7) Subscribers are willing to pay for information if they know that it can be trusted and relied upon. Use your list to get more and more people to subscribe to you as well as browse your site. Lastly, you can use your list to earn money by making them your partners. Your list will be the bloodline of your growth and increase.

Learning How to Make Money Blogging

There are two major types of business models that entrepreneurs use to make money blogging. The first and most common way to turn a blog into a profit making machine is to sell advertising to different companies and brands who want to reach that blog's readers. The second kind of money making blog is one that helps a There are two major types of business models that entrepreneurs use to make money blogging.

The first and most common way to turn single brand improve its image by creating positive associations between the blog and the product in the mind of consumers. Both kinds of blogs can make a lot of money, especially if the creator has a keen mind for marketing.
If you are blogging with the goal of selling advertising, there are two basic ways that you can go about recruiting sponsors who want to put ads on your site; you can let someone else do all of the legwork, or you can do the work yourself and keep all of the revenue.

Within the first group, many people make money blogging by selling space through Google's AdSense program. The advantages of this program are numerous, as it requires very little effort on the part of the blogger or webmaster to begin raking in profits. However, most people discover that they make less money through this method than they had hoped that their blog would earn.
Selling advertising directly to companies who want to put banner ads or sponsored links on your blog can take quite a bit of time, but it is often fairly lucrative.

 If you have a lot of contacts in industries that are related to the topic of your blog, you may want to try to go this route. People who have a strong background in sales and are experienced at pitching proposals can make quite a bit of money by renting blog space to interested companies. The most serious problem with this model is that you often have to build quite a sizable readership before you can attract advertisers, which can mean that you have to do several months of work before you start to make money blogging.

As blogging becomes a more and more lucrative business, a lot of established companies are considering how they can get into the action. One way that companies are capitalizing on the blog movement is by having blogs that provide a kind of friendly face for their corporation. Often, a company will employ an established blogger to create a weblog designed specifically to appeal to that company's customers and to create positive associations with the brand in consumers' minds.

More than one writer who never even dreamed that he or she could make money blogging has been approached by a company and offered quite a pretty penny for this kind of gig.

With Change Can Become The Dream

The limitations with which we manage our lives often lead to depression, failure and a lack of fulfilment of our most treasured dreams, in our daily pursuits we are often caught between the choice of mediocrity or excellence. For some of us the choice is easier than others, but for most of us; we have been fed with so much disappointment that second best comes as second nature, digging ourselves out this negative mind set is the real challenge; how de we make it happen just like we dreamed!
 
The atmosphere that permeates the very fabric of our souls, points to a place of severe introspection where the truth must be recognized for what  it is, then and only then can we be prepared to change our level of tolerance for the mundane and superficial. What we want to change must first begin with our desire and will to no longer accept, what we want to overcome must start with a mental cognisance to no longer tolerate what we abhor. What we think we become good or bad.
 
Success as described is the progressive realisation of any worthwhile pursuit, and so if our dreams are not becoming then they are dying. If our hopes are not progressing, then they are regressing. What we must have is the grit to admit when we need to reassess, sometimes that is all it takes, take a second look and if possible start all over again.  
 
Change is the only thing that is constant, and therefore we are subjected to it whether we acknowledge it or not, the difference is when we allow ourselves the opportunity to be part of the change that is necessary. We cannot be afraid of being taken out of our comfort zone, as creatures of habit we can often be stuck in time and space, it is so much better to become fully conscious and aware of our status, and be fully convicted of the fact that life must be lived with the will to adjust.
 
So be the change that you want to see in your world and very soon you will influence change in the world that surrounds you, take up the mantle of trial and error, and be the force that circumstance has to reckon with. Attract the positive and dissuade the negative, influence the dream and dispel the fear of dreaming, awaken the spirit of adventure and explore from within the desire to accomplish all that is tangibly good, for even that too will be challenged.

A NEW DIRECTION IN NETWORK MARKETING

If you really want to build your own online business from scratch for free, then this is the best opportunity on the planet.

When you join this network, the welcome is warm and inviting, you are immediately engaged in an abundance of dialogue and information; as a result you begin to realise the size of the organisation and the history behind the success of the organisation. And so you are encouraged to jump right in a find your niche, put in the work and the time that will allow you to achieve your goals.

Questions are encouraged and daily tasks are assigned to you, as time goes along you are placed into several categories and levels; the opportunities are endless and the rewards are fulfilling, you get exactly what you earn. My experience so far has been rewarding and enlightening because daily I am asked to review my goals and gauge my progress; best of all I can tie my personal dreams right into the success of the business.     

You don't have to take my word for it, you can join and see for yourself, if you are a dreamer like me and you desire success with the right philosophy, then this is the opportunity for you. Take a look it's free and there is no obligation but for you to achieve income and self confidence, you control how you build and they guide; how good is that?

Win Your Dream

It is definitely a great time to be alive on God's planet (earth,)and it most certainly is the best time to invest in oneself and believe to achieve whatever one put one's mind to. There is no time like the present, and while it is distinctly possible to lose hope and a vision, it is also distinctly possible to gain renewed faith and receive a new vision, if for some reason you have failed that does not mean that you should surrender and give up; or give in, the failure must be seen as a mere stepping stone to the next phase, where you must decide to continue your pursuits, but now at what cost! It may be that the vision or the goal has to be now tweaked a little to accommodate flexibility and innovation, no one idea is always the best idea, and no one pathway is the only pathway.

 Bridges to success have been built by several architects who in their capacity would have seen it fit to develop a plan B just in case plan A did not work, and so even if we have nurtured and produced a plan A that failed to bring the desired results, this should in no wise be an indication that success is an elusion that has just passed us by. We have to be resolute with our desire to attain our goals, and focus only on the result that matters; even if it means stretching our imagination to the limit, there is still room in the world for more dreamers and goal getters.

To continue dreaming is fine, but to develop that dream into a passionate reality is greatness in motion, the best attitude is the attitude that strives to finish what was started, the best commitment one can give, is the one that has no room for turning back and compromise. We are the product of our biological parents, and if we have children of our own, we are proud to see our traits and mannerisms evolve in them, we want the world to know that they represent the us of the future. We want our legacy to remain alive and embedded in the minds of our offspring, we hope that it will remain rich and fresh in their hearts, we want to pass on a baton that has been tried and tested, and will stand against the scrutiny of life and its challenges.

How then can we pass on what we ourselves have failed to accomplish! On what grounds of merit do we lay the foundation for the future, if we have missed the lessons taught in the pains of disappointment and rejection? To what measure do we seek to build for our loved ones an impressionable and undeniable barometer, one which can insulate against failure, and motivate towards success. How will they measure the efforts to be made in time to come! failure indeed is not an option, but rather should be used as a necessary stepping stone to march on to the goal. 

We owe it to our inheritors to handover to them, the kind of legacy that would challenge their sense of parallel, and cause them to want to match and even surpass what was accomplished. We owe it to our detractors, to shut their mouths with portrayals of heroic proportions, where the only response is one hatched by awe and admiration. We have the ammunition, but we must load the gun and fire salvos of trial and error (Rome was not built in one day,) neither will anything worthwhile be acquired without heartache and pressure. Be the diamond that shines out of the rough, be the light that forges on through clouds of darkness and uncertainty; be the winner of your dreams today.

A New Day-A Blessed Life

We have been extremely blessed to have the God of this universe send his only begotten Son on this planet to die for our sins, additionally, we are extremely privileged to have Him made it possible for us to leave earth when we die and spend an eternity with Him. Fact of the matter is that we were and never will be able to repay Him for that single act of love, neither can we in this lifetime or any other do think and or say anything to compensate for that one sacrifice. We will never be worthy, but I believe we were worth it to God and His Son, if not, they would have never done it just so that we can have a chance and a hope. The Bible in probably the most famous verse of all; says that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Notice that the term is loved and not love, this defines the fact that God's love toward us is as eternal as the idea to create man in the first place, and secondly; it's for the world not just a selected few, thirdly He gave, and then he asks for us to believe in order to receive the gift of eternal life. In time we have all but forgotten that God in His mercy took one look at man and instead of seeing our weaknesses and our faults He saw the need for our salvation, and He put the full responsibility upon the shoulders of His Son; the man Christ Jesus, and even though Christ was rejected and betrayed by one of His own, He silently remained faithful to the end until He cried out "It is finished." Why is it that some of us feel we owe nothing to God? Who is man that God should even be mindful of Him? We take so many things and so many people for granted, and for the most part it is not only wrong, but it is unfair; we need to take time out and deeply consider what God has so graciously blessed us with everyday. The best things in life are free and this is only so because they cannot be priced, this is so because man did not have any part in their originality and their sustenance. The sun and the moon in all their splendour, a fleeting rainfall in the middle of a desert, a cool summer breeze to pick you up on a hot and dry day, crisp winter signs flowing into its time slot with consummate ease; there is never any confusion with the natural order of the world. God has set everything in motion and they consistently keep going, clouds and skies have obeyed their commands since time's inception. We have made many inventions and many discoveries, and all of them came from something that was originally here, there is nothing new under the sun and there is nothing that is hidden from the eyes of God. We foolishly commit wrongs and crimes, and fool ourselves into believing that no one saw; there was no eye witness, all the time forgetting that He sees and knows everything all the time, he knows our hearts and minds better than we do ourselves. We pretend to love our neighbours and we don't even love Us; people take time to make money and build enterprise, but find little time to build and make quality friends with long lasting relationships. We post information on Facebook and Twitter forcing for a time a criticism or two about friends and family, we use the social media like an abandoned publisher having nothing to loose; nothing to risk, nothing to have a conscience about. We blast our selfish and myopic opinions into the stratosphere thinking for a moment we could grab the spotlight because we look like we are self righteousness, nobody cares about what we know until they know how much we care! No matter how much buildings and companies we build, no matter how many people we help and poor we feed, no matter how much we contribute to the church and charity, if there was no love with the action, then it was all really nothing but mere acts without virtue and without soul, randomly executed void of merit and substance. Void of lasting impressions and deep sentiments that can move the heart of a being, that can bring the values of true conviction, that can bring gratitude and fulfilment all at the same time. We love to see our names in bright lights and billboards, lounging contently on our own accolades brimming with righteousness indignation, the only tape that we can be fairly measured by is not of this world, it is only from the balconies of Heaven where God dwells in His majesty. We should leave it all up to him, and let the infallible judge do what He can do best, judgement and rewards for all that we do in this life belongs to The Creator, there will be no bias and unfair outlooks, all will have the same discourse regardless. A new day awaits us all and a blessed life is a choice we all have to make, let's practise introspection and honesty in our deliberations, let's stop pretending that we have arrived when all is not well with most of us and just a few of us. Let's take hold of each and every opportunity that presents itself for us to bridge the gap that exists, the chasm that society imposes on mankind to distinguish who belongs and who doesn't, the gaping hole of despair that haunts the life of the less fortunate and the needy. Perspectives must change and the great divide dwindled, we must say to each other 'you are ok,' instead we are saying 'I am ok, you are not,' time maybe kind to us but the end is not very far as we survey our options, let us remember that God made room for all of us to be blessed and happy; we all deserve a new day.

I'm Still Here

Folks it looks like I have taken some time out from my Blogging duties and have gone into hibernation, the truth is that I have been missing on all fronts for a while (2 weeks), fact of the matter is that I am still here. However I have sat with my mind racing about new ideas and posts to write for you, and so as it goes, we can now settle down and look forward to a new season of ingenuity and mirth. I sincerely thank those who have been faithfully logging on, and those of you who have kept visiting despite little or no new interaction from me, but the time has come for me to share some new ideas with you.

 Recently I purposely decided to take a long hard look at my spirituality, and concluded that it was time to pay more attention to feeding my soul, naturally I was exhausted by doing my best to fulfil deadlines online, and it took a lot out of me. Additionally, my time devoted to God was becoming lesser while the time I was devoting to my online business was becoming greater. I could not in all consciousness continue like that, so I had to take time out, as my soul and salvation is valuable in much larger proportions compared to what I do online, in addition to that, family are way too important for me to also neglect them as well , and so I had to strike a balance in favour of God first then my family.

  Heads up people; recently my mom had to be taken to the Health Centre because her blood pressure had jumped to a record high of over 200 over 90, I could not beleieve it, she is in her 70s now but has always been in the pink of health, obviously I was quite concerned. She's on medication now for both high blood pressure and high cholesterol, this is a wake up call for me and my lifestyle choices, health has no guarantees my friends, but there is a lot we can do to mitigate against the threath of sickness and diseases. My daughter has also given me another surprise with a fourth grandchild, I could not imagine anything like this when she got married, maybe one or two; now four, wow! I hope that this is the last.

I started teaching in my church Sunday morning Bible Class dealing with the topic 'building relatiionships,' and had two Sundays to share with my spiritual family, some of the basic truths of what is necessary to building relationships; I thouroughly enjoyed it. The only thing I should have done was to go fishing, this is definitely one of the best time passing activity, and brings you tons of time to reflect and focus on new ideas. However in time I suppose one can prepare and plan for what one desires to so do, always bearing in mnd that the choices we make today will determine the results we experience tomorrow; let's make the best choice, the ones that will not lead to regrets and pain, but rewards and fulfillment.

I have enclosed a link with direct access to Amazon shopping with fantastic deals, please click on the link above for your direct access; enjoy your shopping, just remember I was here all along.

Go For It

In life chances are what we take when opportunities come our way, and in many instances, the chance takers are the ones that benefit the most, there is a reason for that I suppose, and one can always imagine what might have been if they had taken a chance when an opportunity came along. There is a famous saying; 'nothing ventured nothing gained', I honestly don't think that there is any mystery to it, it is rather really simple and goes to follow.

If no seed or plant was sowed into the ground, how can one expect to get or gain produce? It is virtually impossible and a lazy expectation, for one to look forward to reaping if there was no sowing. Sadly, we do that all the time; yes I know you don't want to admit it, but let's be honest and realistic, we often times feel that we are entitled to certain things in life just by the virtue of us being here. I have often said it, and will say it again; no one owes us anything we were placed here to fulfill a purpose, and when we realize our calling early in life, then we can potentially become winners.

Dependency in my humble opinion is not just a syndrome, it is to my mind more like a bad habit we develop because we are basically selfish, the world needs more leaders; people who are willing to put what they believe on the line, people who are prepared to walk the talk and act outside of the box. Investment is a word we are associated with daily, and most of us invest so much to other people's dreams than we do to ours, we give to them our best years with discipline and commitment, and when it's all over, we are sent home to pasture with a little more than pittance to get by.

Pension to me is an ugly word with stipulated limitations and sometimes subject to further taxation, the better word is Residual Income, this is where you plant now and reap in years to come times over what you planted. We have to be prudent and take the time needed to peek into our financial future, ask ourselves the million dollar question, if I continue doing what I am currently doing for the next five years, where will I be financially? Will I be able to afford that new home, car, or family vacation? Or would it be just a matter of me working for someone else to enjoy those benefits!

We have to look at where we are and match it with where we had hoped to be when we begun our journey, see if we are satisfied with where we are. I now have an obligation to point you in a certain direction, and to provide you with an option; a possible way out of the rot, this is so real people we should not ignore it, neither should we just shrug our shoulders at our current displacement, we can change that whenever we choose to. The choice of how you live and succeed is entirely up to you, let us stop putting that choice in the hands of others, regain control of your destiny and take the responsibility for your future into your hands.

 I can't give you a magic formula for success; it simply does not exist, but what I can tell you is that hard work in the proper channels, with planing and a vision can make us masters of our destiny.The time has come to choose, we are the pioneers of our future, and nothing is impossible if we believe enough, and if we are prepared to take positive and affirmative action. Act today my friends and let your faith soar to a place where the only return is in a bright and successful era for you and your loved ones; they deserve it and so do you.

5 Easy Ways To Get Your Creative Juices Going

Writing an article doesn’t just mean putting down thoughts into words then typing and writing it. You have to capture the interest of your readers and get them to keep on reading. To send your message across you have to get the attention of the reader and have a firm grasp of their interest and pique their curiosity.

The main ingredient in baking up an article is a large dose of creativity. While creativity may come natural to many people, some just gets into a block or something to that effect that can drive someone crazy. Many writers have literally torn their hair out when they get writers block and just can’t seem to get their creative juices flowing. 

Putting words into images in the readers mind is an art. A clear and crisp depiction requires a certain flair that only creativity can provide. Similes and metaphors help a lot, but the way an article gets entwined word for word, sentence by sentence then paragraph by paragraph into a whole article develops the essence of the article. 

So just what do you have to do when nothing comes to mind? There is no surefire ways to get the perfect ideas but there are easy ways to get your creative juices flowing. No one can guarantee you of having the perfect mindset but many methods may aid you in achieving that state of mind. Here are five easy ways for that.

1) Keep a diary or a journal with you always. Ideas can be triggered by anything you may hear, see, or smell. Your senses are your radar in finding great ideas. Write all of them into a journal and keep it with you for future reference. You may also write down anything that you have read or heard, someone’s ideas could be used to develop your own ideas and this is not stealing. Remember that ideas and creativity can come from anywhere; it’s the development of the idea that makes it unique.

2) Relax and take time to sort things out. A jumbled mind cannot create any space for new ideas. Everyone must have a clear mind if one wishes to have their creativity in full speed. Get rid of all obstacles that can be a hindrance to your creativity. If you are bothered by something, you cannot force your mind to stay focused.

Try to relax every time that you can and think about your experiences and interactions with others. Your experiences are what shape your mindset and your opinions which could be reflected on your writings. Try to discover yourself, find out what triggers your emotions. Discover what inspires you and what ticks you off. You can use these emotions to help you in expressing yourself and your ideas, with this you can grow creatively.

3) Create a working place that can inspire your creativeness. Your working place can be quite a hindrance if it doesn’t make you feel happy or relaxed. Creativity comes from being in a good state of mind and a messed up workplace that causes distraction won’t be conducive in firing up your creative flow.

Surround your working place with objects that makes you happy and relaxed. You may put up pictures, or scents, objects that inspire, or anything that can get your creativeness cranking. A clean and well organized workplace also rids of distractions and unwanted hindrances. With a good working place, you can work in peace and never notice the time pass by.

4) Set the mood. Setting the mood requires you to just go with the moment or to induce your self to feeling what makes your mind works best. Finding out what makes you tick could help you find ways to get your creative juices flowing. Set the pace and tempo for your mood and everything else will follow.

There are many ways to set the mood. Some writers have been known to use alcohol, a little sip of wine to stir up the imagination. Some would like some mood music while others let the lighting of the environment create the mood.

5) Go on a getaway and just do something unlike crazy. Letting yourself go and have fun produces adrenaline that can make your imagination go wild. Take an adventure or a solemn hike. Whatever it is that is unusual from your daily routine can take the rut out of your schedule. In no time at all, your creativeness will make use of that experience and get your imagination to go on overdrive.

The Dream Of A Lifetime

I have often wondered how easy it was for God to create this world, when all He had to do was speak 'The Word', and all that he spoke came into being, what audacious power and authority displayed by The Creator! He imagined it, spoke it, and it was as He said. To date, all that he spoke into being are still here.

You and I have the ability to visualize; to dream, and to create visions in our minds, some good and some bad. What is even more encouraging, is that we do not even use 2/3 of our mental ability to focus on the things we want to see, but are not yet real. Instead we spend the best part of our thought process, focusing on things that are all ready here, and then the rest of our thoughts focused on destroying what we fear and what we cannot understand.

Man has declared the animals to be lower than Himself, based on the Genesis of Creation, and the natural order of all creation, yet we have for the most part behaved as if we were the last of God's Creation, and not the first. We appear to be excellent at self destruction rather than constructive and objective construction, no one wants to lose in this game of life, but we all want to win; even if we do not observe the rules of engagement. We want to see our dreams become reality, even if it were to cost us our very lives.

What dreams had men like Martin Luther King Jnr., Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson 'Modiba' Mandela, when they were placed on this planet? What legacies of a supreme and unbiased love for all; indelibly they have left for us to follow! Even after winning battles in the war against discrimination, hate and social disharmony, there still largely remains the stench of discord, mistrust, and prolonged divisions between our races and people.

The Greatest Nation on Planet Earth, has within it's very cities and towns; in it's hallowed communities and places of Governance, stories of variance and separation, based on philosophies and political persuasions. Where does the rest of the World go to for relief and release; where indeed, does the barren hopeless and wasted portions of Mankind find the solace it seeks! We have been selfish and myopic with our dreams and visions, we have carved and bargained for little niches we can call our own, not knowing the day or the hour when we would have to leave it all behind. 

The Dream of a Lifetime in my mind can only come form the mind of God, He and He alone, intended for all of us to live holy, healthy, and peaceful prosperous lives on Earth, we have made wrong and thoughtless decisions from the inception, that has caused a tail spin of misery and suffering having a domino effect on generations to follow. 

The time has come for decisions to be made on how we will proceed, how we will consult and confront each other, and we must decide; is it going to be led by our fleshly meanderings, or by the Divine Vision forged By The Creator for all His Creation?  Will we continue to be victims of our own fallacies, or are we going to place our Hope in The God who embraces all inclusively despite?

3 Things You Must Do Before You Submit To Article Directories



To all writers and non-writers out there, now is the time to start digging up those creative writing skills back.

With modern communication technology comes the popularity of information-based marketing, which is one of the oldest and most effective techniques in getting targeted prospects to sites and converting them into buyers. This is why article writing, submissions and publications are also getting popular.

There are already many tools that people can use to make the process of distributing their articles more easy. Though this is invaluable in getting the contents more exposure, which is only half of the story.

Let us take a look first at the common mistakes that some people make before submitting their contents to article directories:

1. Confusing the reason to promote the articles with the reason to write them.

In article writing, there are three key benefits why you are promoting them; branding, lead generation and promotion, which are all part of your optimization efforts.

But there is only one reason why you write an article, and that is to inform your audience. If the article is not focused on this primary and most important purpose, it will fail to achieve the three promotion benefits because no one will be interested in reading them.

You need to figure out first how to get people to read what is in your article, and then make them click on your resource box. You can achieve this by producing better contents.

2. Failing to maximize the promotional opportunities of article marketing.

You may know already that your articles can help you generate additional links back to your site. But do you know that you can get more visitors and better search engine results from that same article?

Mention keywords at strategic places. Just be sure not to overdo them. Some are even using anchor texts which are also an effective method. But it is important to know that majority of the directories are not able to support this.

Remember that is not only about the links back to your site. Part of doing well in your article marketing is getting picked up by publishers with a large number of audiences and gaining the ability of leveraging other brands because of the quality of your work. Better search engine results also are great benefits.

But these things do not put much money in your pocket. There are other factors that can turn your article marketing efforts into an opportunity that can boost your earnings. Not just increase the number of visitors to your site.

Start out with a plan and see to it that your article will serve the function that you intended it to have.

3. Publishing content that does not help your readers.

Maybe in the process of writing articles, you are thinking that all that is you wanted is links back to your site. And any visitors it can generate are fine.

Guess what? Not all article banks and directories are going to accept your content automatically. Oftentimes, they have some guidelines and specifications on the articles that they are accepting.

You can double the number of sites you can submit to by writing articles that the directories want to share with other people. All it takes is one publisher with a hundred thousand readers to increase your potential audience overnight.

Write the articles that publishers want in their publications if you want your article marketing to work the most effective way for you. This also means you have to obey the standard guidelines, spell checks, researching on a good topic and even hiring a writer to produce a good content on your behalf.

In the end, it is all really a matter of choice on your part. You can start getting a little exposure from increased links back but on a very basic level. Or enjoy massive exposure from a little extra time making quality contents.

It will be your choice. You may not be aware of the fact that an article submitted on directories is not meant to have the same level of exposure as highly-targeted content ones geared on a narrow group of people.

Learn the difference between these two and it will surely help you know what kinds of articles to write and to submit.
