For the most part my life is EAT, SLEEP, WORK, INVEST, LIFT, REPEAT 🙂

I enjoy Philosophy and Wisdom.

My mission statement is to blog about a BALANCED LIFE
Blogging about things I have learned in my life that might be of help to others. The Spiritual, The Social, The Physical, The Financial, and The Mental. After 7 days, I will be deleting the oldest day and consolidating and keeping some of the things I have written, but not all.

SECRET TO SUCCESS FORMULA~FIRST SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS + IDEA OR OBJECT + (FOCUS + CORRECT ACTION + DESIRE + FAITH + PERSERVERANCE + GRATITUDE) X TIME = SUCCESS (IS THE LIBERTY TO COMMAND, COUPLED WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND LOVING HEART) *THIS IS A LAW! THIS IS A FACT!* WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

Now, I am going to list some topics here for myself to be able to come back to later and write about. If you are new to blogging and have trouble coming up with ideas, just keep a note pad handy and anytime you get an idea, just jot it down. That way if you have a dry spell or writers block you can go to your idea pad and quickly get an idea…

My mind has been on MOMENTUM. We are either moving forwards or backwards and most of the time, once we start in a direction, we keep moving in that direction. Any way, every little thing we do sends us in one direction or the other.

This morning, I have already done my work out and reading. About to do some grilling, then get ready for work. Trying to decide, if I have enough time and energy to trim a bush in the front yard? I don’t like to make myself too tired, before going into work. I have done that before, and near the end of the shift, it’s not too pretty! LOL

Any way, sounds like the talk between Kim of North Korea and Trump, went fairly well and I am glad.

Wondering, why I am even writing again this morning. Just another day of life. Going to do a few things on my “To Do” list, go to work and do my best. Working towards, becoming healthy and financially free.

6-15-18
I keep thinking about not writing, but now I have put that to rest. I am going to start deleting posts, that do not have at least 1 view after a year of being posted. If, they have a view, at least 1, then I will keep them and see how it goes from there. I am going to make a note here: DELETE POSTS WITH NO VIEWS AFTER 1 YEAR! There, I got that out of my system…

Working 1 until 9:30 today. Doing my best to stay positive at me new job. Several, of my co-workers I have found are very negative, and always of personal drama going on… I, just want to tell them, if they are so unhappy, why don’t they just do something else? But, I don’t, I just listen and get away from them as soon as I can and quickly start pumping my own mind with how grateful I am to have my new job and how it pays more and the hours are better. The work, is good exercise and I am super blessed!

Not much else to write about today. Just read, rest, exercise, and go to work…

I was going to write some new blog posts on all the topics, I had listed above, but I am in one of those moods, where I don’t feel like putting my thoughts out to the world in a permanent post. So, just going to quickly add them here each day until I decide different. The next topic, I was going to write about “If you are not happy, then do something about it.” Not much else to write, after the title, it pretty much says it all. IF, you are unhappy and doing something, you are really not happy with, then change it! Start, right now and start making a plan and moves in a direction to change what ever it is, that you are not happy about. Maybe, it’s your health, thoughts, or a job. Make a plan and do something about it! Stop whining!

Really, I focus too much on the few! There are more, good positive people in the world, than people doing it all wrong, aren’t there? It is just me and my negative way of thinking… I think? Most people are in good shape aren’t they? Most people are financially secure aren’t they? Most people are honest, aren’t they? Most people are happy and do their best, don’t they? It is just me, focusing on the few people doing it wrong. I have go to focus on the good and stop worrying about the people doing it wrong. I have got to work on that!

Yesterday or the 16th, something went wrong or I did something wrong and lost my blog post. But this morning, for some reason it occurred to me to check the history button above and I was able to recover and get it reposted. I was already, just starting over and had accepted that it was gone and now it is back…

I enjoy writing and do it because I enjoy doing it, it is definitely not for the money, LOL There are so many people who write stuff, I will never read, people who write songs, I will never hear, such is life. We all have dreams and things we enjoy doing and deep down we want the world to love them too…

THINGS I AM GOING TO DO, NO MATTER WHAT are, eat, sleep, invest or trade,body build, and live my life as correctly as possible! These are things, I am going to do no matter what!

Hope everyone had a Happy Fathers Day. I am fortunate that my Dad is still here and lives close enough that I was able to go visit him for a couple of hours yesterday.

My thoughts and mind where thinking this morning. We are either getting better or worse. We are either getting stronger or weaker. We are getting richer or poorer. Basically, we are going in one direction or the other. So, each moment we need to being doing things that send us in the best, correct direction, so our futures will be as good as they can be…

Like right now, I am writing, because it helps to get things out of my head, so I have room for new things to think about and I am sharing, my knowledge, so some one else can learn from things, I have learned, this is a good thing. How, have I learned everything I have learned? From watching others, reading things from others, and life experiences… Learning, is a good thing.

I was reading from a Magazine “Mother Jones” about different things and this is what I call a Left Wing Magazine. They say they print the Truth and maybe, to them it is the Truth. But, to me it is what I call, “Whining”. Just about any article they write, is blaming some one. The Government, President Trump or some other Government Official. Really, doesn’t matter what the article is about, that is where they end up…

This past article was about poor people and housing. Well, yes there are poor people and there always will be, the Bible says so… But, almost all poor people are poor by choice or decisions that they make. NOT ALL, but the large majority. Sorry, but that is the truth. WHY? You say… Well, I will quickly tell you why? Because of decisions they have made and make… If those people had studied hard in school and gotten educations, they could have gotten better jobs, then they could have lived below their means, saved, invested, and purchased their own homes, which could not have been taken away from them.

They chose to not do well, to not try, to get FREE or help with their housing and that Freebie was taken away. Now the reason the Freebie was taken away was because of Poor Management Decisions. Mismanagement of funds, and improper upkeep of the housing that was there. Oh, yes and the people that lived there probably, spray painted the walls, and not telling what the insides of those places looked like? Did they ever vacuum or mop? I’m just saying, it is choices they made, stop whining and blaming other people for our problems!
I completely understand, that some people just don’t know, any better. They have been raised in situations, where they just have no idea, how good it can be, IF, they would just make right decisions. The problem, is they have no IDEA what right is! If, all you have known, is people taking care of you, drug infestation, hate, and doing things wrong, then of course you are going to just reap more of that life style.

How, can it be changed or how can I help? I have no idea! All, I know is too keep learning, and do the best that I can do, so that I can be the best me, I can be! I am not a Professional anything, and I am not a teacher or preacher, so all I know to do is pray for them and be my best. From, my personal experience, the only people who can help themselves are themselves.

I guarantee that there were some people who worked and got themselves out of that housing situation and are doing better now. Granted, it is probably only a (Few), but if ONE can do it, so can everyone else.

Have you ever seen a person, MAKE IT? I have, lots of times. I’ve seen people go into jobs, and quickly move up and on to better and better positions in life and do well. Then, I have also seen, many, many more make bad decisions and not stay in a job position for very long at all and are now dead, sick, or in prison. Why? Because of decisions that they made! Some people choose to show up for work 5 minutes early, some choose 5 minutes late. Some, choose to work hard, some not at all. It is the little things that matter, for they add up into big things…

Well, time to move on and live my life today, got that all out of my system, LOL 🙂

9:17 AM, Just finished my Day 3, Calf Work Out! Hope I can walk at work this afternoon, LOL I work 1 until 9:30pm today. I know, I will, but seriously walking at work, when I first get there and near the end of the shift, may be tough! LOL I love it! Exercise and some discomfort is good for us!

Was listening to motivational stuff on YouTube while I was working out. I love, motivational books and soundtracks! I love to stuff as much positive stuff into my mind when, I get the chance simply because our minds are always recording into our conscious and subconscious and it is like I said this morning, if something good is not going in, then it is probably something bad or useless…

It made me think, maybe I should only write positive stuff here and not put out my true thoughts and negativity sometimes? I might and I might not… Going to think on that one… If, I wrote positive stuff all the time, it would be good, but it wouldn’t be real life! Stuff, does happen, and true most of the time it is self inflicted trouble, but it still happens…

Any way, these are just some rambling thoughts I was having during and after my work out…

6-19-2018
Okay, so I got up at 6am, went to work from 8am until 4:30, got home had some supper and have sat down on the couch to check the stock market and my email. It is now 5:58pm an I am hoping and praying, I can get back up and go do my Day 4 Arms, Abs, and Thigh Work Out, LOL…

I am going to and if I don’t I will write about it tonight or tomorrow… But, I know I will! I am tired, but I know it will be good for me and make me stronger! Since, I went in early, I didn’t do my daily reading or anything so far… This morning, I just got up, got dressed, had some breakfast and watched news until it was time to go in…

Now, I am letting my supper settle, before I go hit the weights! It is now 6:01 pm, I told myself I would get up and go do it at 6pm, LOL… I’m going, I’m going….

6-20-18
No body said it was going to be easy! I woke up with out my alarm clock this morning, around 6:15am… Just learned on the news about a Plant Called Hog Weed that is more dangerous than Poison Ivy… Dreaming of Financial Freedom. There are lots of good hard working people in this world, doing their best to get a head, but it is very hard, when you don’t make a lot of money. I myself, have been working on it for years and I am still not quite there! But, I am working on it! With, my new career things are going in the right direction again. My job loss around 6 years ago, sort of made my progress flat line on the chart. But for the last 2 months it has started rising again! Saving and investing as smartly as I know how, it is just a matter of time now…

It takes focus and dedication. I am having to apply all my knowledge and will power towards my goals! I will make it, I will do it, and I am grateful for the journey!

Had a good work out yesterday, I had to dig deep to do it! I was in a state of extreme relaxation after eating my supper and sitting on the couch for about 30 minutes. I finally, just got up, walked slowly to my work out room, turned on my motivation from YouTube and started slowly moving light weights around and just started doing my exercises! Before, I knew it I was done and walking on my tread mill! It felt great at the end, and I was glad I did it! Why, does it have to be a struggle to get started? Why? LOL 🙂

COURAGE AND PATIENCE

Disclaimer: I am an Amazon Affiliate

These definitions were obtained from the internet.

Courage, the ability to do something that frightens one.

Patience, the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.

These are a couple of things, I have had to deal with the past month and just thought I would share, my thoughts. I was in a retail career, that had some fairly wacky hours, as most retail jobs do now a days. I worked there 5 years and was getting tired, basically I think because it was messing with my sleep patterns. Anyway, it was getting to the point, I was really dreading going to work and so bad in fact, that it helped me to build COURAGE to go and look for a better situation, and I did! I am so glad, I did!

(NIV) Proverbs 3:5-6, 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

I am the type of person who doesn’t care for change. I like to get into a good habit or rut and stay there! If something isn’t broke, why try to fix it, kind of guy. Well, my career was starting to feel broken, so broken it caused me to have COURAGE to actually start looking for another job. Sometimes, discomfort can cause us to change, even when we think we don’t really want too.

So, I prayed and took some action and in a period of a couple of months (which seemed like forever) I had a new career! It is still in retail, but I like to call my jobs, careers! Because for me it is, it is not just a job, it is my lively hood.

Now, I did not just up and quit! First, I researched and started asking around for places that might be hiring. Then, I started checking on the pay and hours involved in working for the new companies, plus distance to drive. This took PATIENCE!

(NIV) Proverbs 16:32 32 Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.

The change in careers, did not happen overnight, it took about two months from the first prayer to actually coming to fruition. The first thing that happened, was I became very dissatisfied with my work and I prayed for the Lord to help me find a better way and He did! Once, I prayed, I started searching on the internet and asking people I came in contact with, if they knew of anywhere hiring. When, I would find one I was interested in, then I would research and check out the things that mattered most to me. Pay, hours, benefits, and distance. While, I was looking, I was preparing my Resume (which now I am going to always keep current).

It is a great idea, to keep a current Resume handy. I personally, didn’t have one and had to take a good deal of time to research my past work history and references. Anyway, now I have a current one and plan on updating it as I go along in my new career.

When, I did find a job that interested me, I put in my application and sent them my Resume. I did not get the first job, or the second job, or the third job, but the fourth one finally paid off!

It was actually scary to me going for the interviews! It has been 5 years since my last interview, so it took COURAGE for me to go! After the first interview and not getting that particular job, really crushed me, at first. Then, it just sort of made me mad and more determined to find another job! I was thinking to myself, “What is wrong with me?” “Why am I not hirable?”

But, with COURAGE and PATIENCE, I persevered and went to a second, third, and finally fourth interview, with different job prospects. The fourth interview actually turned into two more at the same company. Those, interviews really took PATIENCE!

Now the COURAGE and PATIENCE has paid off! I have a new career, with better pay, better hours, and better benefits! Now, I am working on creating good work habits and my new career and getting comfortable again! Believe me the process was not easy. Each day, I had to stay focused, keep doing a good job at my current company, even though I was not really happy there any longer! I still had to make myself, do a good job, like I would be there forever! But, at the same time, I was focused and keeping my mind on a new career! I knew it was out there somewhere, I just had to find it!

When I go through something, it can be very tough at the time, when actually going through it! But, as soon as it is over, it builds confidence and makes me so much stronger, it builds my faith and makes me feel so thankful!

When times get tough, I can think back on other times when things got tough and how the Lord helped me through, and it gives me strength to carry on!

Change is very uncomfortable sometimes, for me any way…
I like to create good habits, that reap me good rewards, and just keep doing them over and over, making life easier and simpler, for me any way…
I have found, if something is working well, just keep doing it!
If something is not working well, then find a better way, life is too short to go around unhappy! I might have to be unhappy for a period of time, until I can get to something better, but that is okay, IF I know there is a better way!
I know with time, if I keep working at it, I can get there!
Any way, hope this gives someone who maybe going through a change, to hang in there, it will get better! Just keep giving God the Thanks, and working towards whatever it is you are trying to achieve! You will get there!

Here is a little formula, just fill in the parts and see how it works out for you!

SECRET TO SUCCESS FORMULA~ FIRST SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS + IDEA OR OBJECT + (FOCUS + CORRECT ACTION + DESIRE + FAITH + PERSERVERANCE + GRATITUDE) X TIME = SUCCESS (IS THE LIBERTY TO COMMAND, COUPLED WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND LOVING HEART) *THIS IS A LAW! THIS IS A FACT!* WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

INSPIRE

DISCLAIMER: I am an Amazon Affiliate

INSPIRE – fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. This definition came from the internet.

I have read a lot of self help books in my life time and I can’t ever recall one talking about Inspire or Inspiring per say. Maybe, because the person writing the book or doing the speaking, is actually doing the inspiring, therefore they don’t mention it?

I’ve heard, lots and lots on Gratitude, Love, Peace, Happiness, Joy, etc.,…

Anyway, to Inspire or be Inspired are very important in life, to me… A key to happiness you might say, much in the same way as Gratitude works.

It always makes me feel good inside to be Inspired, I guess that is why I am such a Self Help Addict? I enjoy, the feeling of hearing, people who are Inspiring me and cheering me on!

Also, Inspiring others is a great feeling. Letting them know that they can make it! They can do it! They are great, powerful, and can do whatever they set their minds to do!

Example: Have you ever helped a child learn how to ride a bike? Or helped anyone learn something new? It’s a great feeling! It makes you feel great when they succeed! It brings happiness, just like being grateful! The child’s face lights up, when they realize they are peddling, up and running on their own! They instinctively have gratitude towards you for helping! It is like gratitude and inspiration go hand in hand…

Any way, these were some thoughts that came to me this morning and I just wanted to share, something new that has awoken in my thoughts… 🙂

LIVE BELOW YOUR MEANS

DISCLAIMER: I am an Amazon Affiliate

Have you ever heard people say to live below your means? Financially, it is a great idea. In practice, and from research I have read, it sounds like not a lot of people do it. This is going to be a short blog post, quick and to the point!

It is a good idea, to spend less than you bring in financially, so that one can save, invest, and help others. It is really very simple, we just make it hard. Here are the steps, I am going to use the K.I.S.S. method. (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID)

1.  Work or have some sort of income.

2. Save, invest, a percentage each payday, pay yourself first!

3. Spend less than you make.

4. Build your savings and investments up until they give you a monthly, quarterly or annual return that would make you financially independent.

That is it in a nutshell, just like a lot of things in life, it is not rocket science, we just fail to take action and do it!

Number one, is work or have some sort of income. Duh! Work, investment income, residual income, get money coming in! If, you don’t have enough money coming in, work harder! Work two jobs or three, if that is what it takes! Start your own business, DO SOMETHING!

Number two, is save as much as you can, until you achieve financial independence! PAY YOURSELF FIRST! Create a habit of saving and investing! If you don’t, you probably never will, the best time to start is NOW!

Number three, is spend less than you bring in, so you will have some to save and invest! IF, you make a lot of money, this one should be very easy to do, just cut back on things that you don’t really need!

IF, your income is low, then buy only things that you really NEED! Get down to the basics, and if that is not working, then you need to increase your income, by working harder. Sorry, there is no secret formula, that is life!

As, time goes along and your savings and investments grow, it will get easier and easier, it just takes time. One again sorry, that is just life. Every once and a while, you might stumble onto some magic something that just makes millions of dollars, but realistically it is just going to take a lot of hard work and time.

Here is the formula that I use, to get things done!

SECRET TO SUCCESS FORMULA~ FIRST SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS + IDEA OR OBJECT + (FOCUS + CORRECT ACTION + DESIRE + FAITH + PERSERVERANCE + GRATITUDE) X TIME = SUCCESS (IS THE LIBERTY TO COMMAND, COUPLED WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND LOVING HEART) *THIS IS A LAW! THIS IS A FACT!* WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

I call it Secret To Success Formula, but really it is no big secret at all. Anyone who has ever accomplished something in life, has used the formula. Successful people know how to use it.

PURPOSE

DISCLAIMER: I am an Amazon Affiliate

PURPOSE the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

Have you ever wondered what your purpose was or why am I here? I have, many times over my life. There have been several times where I just knew, I had it all figured out and then as life would progress, I would realize I didn’t…

At this point in my life, my opinion is that each person has a different purpose and only that person, knows that purpose, and if they are like me they will sooner or later figure it out, or think they have 🙂

My opinion is that each of us are born into this world at different times, places, and circumstances. Our minds immediately start gathering information and we start forming habits and knowledge. I believe we come from a state of Sub Conscious being when first born and start developing our Conscious being as we gather more and more information from birth onward.

As we grow and mature we are fulfilling our purpose, by doing whatever it is we are doing as rightly and perfectly as we can humanly do it.

Example, take the ant. I am not an ant expert, but each ant has a purpose and I am assuming the majority of them fulfill their purpose because from what I understand they have been fairly successful and been around a long time 🙂

Now, occasionally an ant will fall into the hands of a child with a magnifying glass, and be burned alive on it’s trip back to the mound, or stumble across some ant poison and it’s purpose will not be fulfilled, but I assure you the ant did it’s best.

Can ants think? I do not know, I am thinking they would be more under the Sub Conscious mode of thinking, but I do not know this for sure.

My point is, humans can think and change life’s directions or purposes. I am not so sure, as I have heard from some people that our purpose is to be happy, or to do any one certain thing. Each human is different and has different purposes, at this point in my life, my opinion is that to fulfill ones purpose means to do whatever it is that you are doing, to the best of your ability and do it in a correct manner. My opinion is each person should take what they have learned and be the best that they can be and live life as correctly as possible.

So, no matter where you are on the planet or what ever occupation you have, just be the best you, you can be! Do things as right as you can and you will be fulfilling your purpose.

The people who choose to do things in a wrong manner or destructive manner are not fulfilling their purpose, they are just wasting precious life.

For now, this is where I am at with the subject of Purpose. I could ramble on and go deeper into the subject, but for now, I feel I have made my point and fulfilled my Purpose of writing on the subject of Purpose 🙂

GO GET IT!

DISCLAIMER: I am an Amazon Affiliate

Is there something that you really want, or want to do in life? Then go get it, or do it!

People get what they really, really, want sooner or later. Sometimes they want bad things, like drugs and an immoral life style. Some people want success and happiness. It is all in the decisions and choices we make each day.

Do you need help in getting what you want? Well, I am here to help!

I call it my SECRET TO SUCCESS FORMULA~ FIRST SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS + IDEA OR OBJECT + (FOCUS + CORRECT ACTION + DESIRE + FAITH + PERSERVERANCE + GRATITUDE) X TIME = SUCCESS (IS THE LIBERTY TO COMMAND, COUPLED WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND LOVING HEART) *THIS IS A LAW! THIS IS A FACT!* WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

First of all it is not really a SECRET! Every person, that has ever lived and been successful at least once in their life has used this formula, they may just not have known that they used it. I just like calling it my Secret To Success Formula, because it is a Formula for Success and some people don’t know it or know how to use it properly.

I like formula’s from way back when I was in around the 8th grade and started taking Algebra and Physics. Example, say you are counting boxes on a pallet. You have 4 going one way and 5 going the other way, so you multiply 4 x 5 = 20, then you have 5 layers x 20 = 100 boxes, that’s an Algebraic Formula! Or Work x Force = Distance, this is a Physics Formula. Anyway, I like formula’s and it doesn’t have to be just numbers, they can be used with anything we do in life. This just happens to be one that I figured out by observation over the years and enjoy sharing it with others. I didn’t invent this formula, just wrote it down as I learned it from life.

The first thing is a person has to come up with an idea or object that they want or need. Once, they have the idea or object in mind, it is a great idea to get a picture of it or to write it down somewhere that you will see it each day and it is best to be a place where you can see it when you first wake up and right before you go to sleep at night.

The reason for doing this, is too keep it in your mind as often as possible. To get it into your Conscious mind and your Sub Conscious mind. Because to Go Get It, it will have to be your main Focus!

So, now that you know what you want, you have to FOCUS on it! Keep it in your thoughts as much as humanly possible. We all have things to do, like brush our teeth, comb our hair, eat our breakfast, etc., But, while we are doing these things we need to keep FOCUSED on what we really want! Remember, once we get what we want or need, we can move our FOCUS on to the next thing we want or need. So, we only have to FOCUS on this next thing that we want to get for a certain period of time.

Now, we have the IDEA + FOCUS, now we are going to start making or taking CORRECT ACTIONS to Get What We Want or Need! Just having an idea and focusing on it, is not going to make it magically appear or happen, sorry that is not real life…

So, as often as we can, we make CORRECT ACTIONS towards what we want or need. Will we make mistakes sometimes? Sure, that is life! But what we do, is LEARN from the mistake! IF you try something and it doesn’t work, learn from it and try a different action! Study, research, check with people that have what you want and see how they got it. Ask questions, learn from them, and just repeat what they did, learn from their mistakes and you can probably do it quicker than they did!

So now we have the Idea + Focus + Correct Actions, we keep a desire in our hearts and minds. We are doing all these things at once now. Most of the time in life, people get more of what they WANT than what they might really NEED. Let, me see if I can give an example here… Let’s take an alcoholic, this person will use this formula to the destruction of their lives. They desire the drink, so bad, that they will do what ever it takes to get it! It is such a strong DESIRE to have the drink, that they will choose it over health, family, and success. We have to have a DESIRE for what we want to get, like the Alcoholic has a desire for a drink!

So, now we have the Idea + Focus + Correct Actions + Desire, along with Faith that we will achieve our goal! As life goes on  and people become more successful in obtaining things, their faith grows! Because, if you are successful in one adventure, then every time you succeed, you grow more confident that you can succeed again and again! So, when you are going for your next Idea, you just have Faith that you will obtain it!

Now, we have the Idea + Focus + Correct Actions + Desire + Faith, and we keep PERSERVERING! Have you ever been doing something and you would get tired or it took a long time to accomplish? Somethings can be accomplished in a quick time frame and some things take a long time or what seems like a long time. Like School or College Degrees. Anyway, to get what we want, we have to Persevere. If it takes years to achieve something, then so be it! We just keep moving forward as quickly and as often as we can each moment of each day, until we achieve our goal! That is what successful people do!

Now, we have the Idea + Focus + Correct Actions + Desire + Faith + Perseverance, this next thing is very important too! Gratitude! Be thankful and grateful for what you are going to have or do! Being thankful is a powerful tool. I am not 100% sure, why it is so important, but it is! Just be grateful you have the knowledge, to get what you want. Be grateful you know how to learn and do the right things to get what you want! Be grateful, that you have a strong mind that can help you focus on what you want! Be grateful, you have a desire for right things, for good things in your life! Be grateful that you know you have Faith, and the Perseverance needed to achieve your goal! Life is just so much better when we are Grateful!

So here we have it! The Idea + (Focus + Correct Actions + Desire + Faith + Perseverance + Gratitude), now all we have left, is TIME! Things take time! This is the hard part and where Perseverance comes in handy! The Universe works on Laws, and to achieve things, it takes time, sorry! I wish there was a quicker way, and sometimes, for somethings there are quicker ways, but for the most part in life, to achieve things, it just takes a certain amount of time.

Occasionally, from the World of Spiritual Laws things can happen Miraculously in an Instant! But, that is a whole other blog post! Most of the time, it just takes a certain amount time!

Now all you have to do is apply this formula and you will succeed! When ever, you have ever succeeded in your life time, you used this formula, whether you realized it or not. What ever you Really, Really want, you will get! Good Luck (Luck is when preparation meets opportunity) and Happy Living 🙂

GET WHAT YOU WANT!

SECRET TO SUCCESS FORMULA~ FIRST SEEK THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS + IDEA OR OBJECT + (FOCUS + CORRECT ACTION + DESIRE + FAITH + PERSERVERANCE + GRATITUDE) X TIME = SUCCESS (IS THE LIBERTY TO COMMAND, COUPLED WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE AND LOVING HEART)

*THIS IS A LAW! THIS IS A FACT!* WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

I have written several other blog pages on this subject, with different titles. Basically, by using the formula above, you can get what ever it is that you want!

By having an idea or object that you want in mind. All you have to do is focus on it and use correct actions, with desire for it and faith that you will have it! You must persevere until you achieve your desire and have gratitude as though you already have it! In time, you will get what you want!

This is a law and fact! You reap what you sow!

We all get what we really, really want! IF, we don’t it is because we have let one of the above pieces of the formula fail. IF, you are still doing all the above, (time) maybe the only thing left! Persevere and in time you will achieve it!

One big problem in peoples lives, is (Correct Actions). Example: They would rather be foolish and party instead of doing their studies and getting a good education. Lots of people drop out of school and end up on the street wondering why they are there…

If things are not going the way that you would like, be honest and check out how you are making decisions. Are you doing the same thing everyday, expecting a different result? Are you out of work, yet not getting up everyday and looking for a job? Are you not willing to move to where a job is available? Are you making excuses, instead of making correct actions? Are you blaming, instead of taking responsibility?

I’ve seen homeless people put in tons of effort as salespersons to get some money, only to take it and buy alcohol or drugs. IF, they would just start making correct actions, they could quickly move from the streets to prosperity. But, they choose to make bad decisions. This is America and there are way too many places to help people get ahead in life, IF only the people would make the correct decisions and take correct actions.

They are getting what they really want! Because they are using the above formula to achieve it. They are taking the correct actions to put themselves on the street. IF, they really wanted to get off the streets they could, they apparently just don’t know how  to make correct decisions. How sad….

People for some reason think living a righteous life is hard or boring. When in reality, it is the greatest, best way to live. By doing things the right way, we reap the best life has to give in all areas…

Well, I will get off my soap box, just trying to help. The sad thing is, the people who need to know this, will never read it….

 

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

(Disclaimer: I am an Amazon Affiliate)

Where did the 10 Commandments come from? The Bible says The Lord came down upon the Mt. Sinai and gave them to Moses. Moses, needed help with his people since they had left Egypt and Pharaoh, setting up a new Society and Government.

What are the 10 Commandments? The 10 Commandments are just 10 of many laws for the people of Moses’s time and Jurisdiction.

What year were the 10 Commandments taken out of the American School system? 1980

Are the 10 Commandments bad for Americans? No, they are Laws which were used for Moses’s people and time.

Why do people not like them in the School System? Many reasons, the biggest is the push for separation of Church and State.

Where can I find the 10 Commandments? In the Bible, Exodus Chapter 20 and Deuteronomy Chapter 5.

Here are the 10 Commandments in short form:

1. I am the Lord thy God, thou shall not have any gods before me.

This first commandment, really has no harm. People who believe in God are going to do this one any way. I can see where the people who don’t believe in God could let this one bug them. So, since we are a Country with the Freedom of Religion, then maybe it shouldn’t be in Government Institutions?

2. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything.

This second commandment is like a reinforcement of the first. People who believe in God will like it, others will not. So, this one probably shouldn’t be in Government Institutions, since we are a country with Freedom of Religion.

3. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.

The third commandment is like the first two, either you believe in God or you don’t.

4. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

The fourth one, hardly any one follows anymore, except for really good Jewish people and Seventh Day Adventist. This was a good Law for Society, helping them to work 6 days and then take a break! Sometimes in Society, we just work way too much. Here again as the first three, I can see where maybe this one shouldn’t be in Government Institutions.

5. Honor you father and your mother.

Wow! Now what is wrong with this one? No matter who you are on the planet, you should honor your father and mother. After all they gave you life, even if they aren’t good parents from that point forward, at least they gave you life! So, I don’t really see anything wrong with this one being posted in a Government Institution, it’s a great suggestion.

6. You shall not murder.

This one could also be posted in a Government Institution, because it is one of our current day laws.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

This one is another one where Society waffles! Remember the Free Love 60’s? Personally, I think it is a great idea and would help take care of a lot of problems, like teen pregnancy, disease, etc.. In away, it is in the law books still today, because it is still grounds for divorce. So, I say it should be allowed into Government Institutions.

8. You shall not steal.

Number 8 is like, duh! This one is another one, that is a very well know law of the land. It should be posted anywhere, it needs to be!

9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

This one, is already in every courtroom, it is called Perjury. So, it definitely, along with 6 and 8 could and should be listed in Government Institutions.

10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, wife, or property.

According to the dictionary on the internet Covet means to yearn for or desire something. So, this is one of those things that is a great idea and suggestion. Coveting, just causes misery in a persons life. Wanting something you can’t have is just a useless effort in life, so why bother. But here again, we are looking at something that is a good suggestion, but not necessarily a suggestion for people in a Government Institution.

So, I am sure they could post 6,8, and 9 for sure in Government buildings and call it “THE 3 Commandments” 🙂

The reason, I was researching the 10 Commandments was because, I’ve been hearing people more and more say things like “Since they took the 10 Commandments and Prayer out of School Society has been getting worse.” Well, things do seem to be worse society wise to me. Personally, I have not ran the statistics on things, but it is pretty obvious things from a Moral Stand Point have gotten a lot worse.

Personally, I am for truth and doing things as right as possible. I completely understand a person who doesn’t believe in God, or anything for that matter that could be offended by the Government suggesting a religion on them.

Let’s see, if I can get an example here without offending someone? Let’s say this Martian moves to America and his god is Marty the Master of Mars. So, he is like not happy with the first 4 commandments, because that is saying he can’t have Marty as his god and the Martian likes to sleep 6 days and only work on the Sabbath. So, I can understand how this might offend the Martian. Our Government has laws that the Martian will have to follow or pay the consequences, but religious laws? No, because we have freedom of religion.

Personally, I would be upset if they Posted the Master of Mars 10 Commandments in my children’s class room or some 10 Witches Rules, see what I mean?

So, what could be a solution? People here are supposed to have freedom of religion. So, people should follow their religion and everybody else should follow their religion without offending each other.

But, there would be no harm at all in, the American Government Coming up with 10 Commandments or 10 Laws, posted in Government Buildings that we are having problems with in our Society!

Or maybe, they could call them the 10 Good Suggestions? LOL

What could the 10 American Commandments Be?

1. You shall follow the American Laws.

2. You shall not break rule number 1.

3. You shall not use profanity in public places.

4. It is a good idea to get at least 8 hours of sleep.

5. Honor your father and mother and be kind to everyone.

6. You shall not murder.

7. Thou shalt not rape, assault, or harm another person.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10. You shall not take things that are not yours.

Anything that can help Society to stop killing each other and destroying themselves with bad habits, is a good thing. God was just trying to do a good thing for Moses and the people of that time.

So, after writing all this it is pretty simple. The 10 Commandments were just 10 Laws for Moses to help his people back in his day. People who believe in God, like to keep doing as much the way God wants as they humanly, possibly can and those who don’t believe in God, get upset when they feel like God is being forced on them.
