Thank you, God

My favorite prayer and probably most powerful prayer, it is also the simplest to remember:

“Thank you, God!”

Never mind if it doesn’t make sense to do it. It doesn’t matter. As Rev. Greg Barrette said, “A childlike faith is all that is needed.”

Jesus said, “Become as a child.”

Next time you need prayer, just go within yourself and, “Thank God.” Just say it over and over, “Thank you, God.” and feel the sense of peace you have..

Prison VS Work

This is great commentary from my good friend and mentor, Tom “Big Al” Schrieter at Fortunenow.com

He analizes which is better: Prison vs Work

Ever wonder why people with jobs want to have their own business?

I received the following in an e-mail. I’m not sure of the source, but I think it might give us some insight on why prospects are eager to join our business.

Prison Vs. Work Debate

IN PRISON…you spend the majority of your time in an 8×10 cell.
AT WORK…you spend most of your time in a 6×8 cubicle.

IN PRISON…you get three meals a day.
AT WORK…you only get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

IN PRISON…you get time off for good behavior.
AT WORK…you get rewarded for good behavior with more work.

IN PRISON…a guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK…you must carry around a security card and unlock and open all the doors yourself.

IN PRISON…you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK…you get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON…you get your own toilet.
AT WORK…you have to share.

IN PRISON…they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK…you cannot even speak to your family and friends.

IN PRISON…all expenses are paid by taxpayers with no work required.
AT WORK…you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON…you spend most of your life looking through bars from the inside wanting to get out.
AT WORK…you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars.

IN PRISON…there are wardens who are often sadistic.
AT WORK…they are called managers.

Things that make you think!!

Why Did Liz Slap Me For Using FaceBook?

Well, that is not the whole truth. However, I did ask her if he would slap me if she caught me checking Facebook.

Now why in the world do I want to get slapped every time I use Facebook. No I am not into any weird Taboo thing.

But after reading Best Selling Author Tim Ferris, tweet recently.

“Man Increases Productivity 98% by Hiring Someone to Slap Him in the Face Every Time He Uses Facebook: http://yhoo.it/R5qY3o”

I started realizing I have this “addiction” of having to login to Facebook more than a few times a day just to “see” what is going on in Facebook land.

Now I know that I am not only the only one that has this problem.

I have noticed a growing problem.

If your posting more than once a day on Facebook or logging into Facebook just to see what is going on, I think you may have to look into your “addiction.”

How offend do you tend to accidentally “stumble” onto to Facebook to see “what’s going on.” Let me tell you this its affecting how much work I am getting done.

The problem with working on the computer almost all day it’s just way to easy to do. It would be the equivalent of working in office and getting up every few minutes to head over to the “water cooler” to see what everyone is talking about, it’s insane.

But I have decided to do something about this Facebook addiction that most everyone that uses it has, I have installed a Facebook blocker on my computer! I love to use Chrome Browser they have a great app, called Stay Focus.

Here is website with a few tools to help you stay more productive:

So I no longer have access to Facebook on my personal computer. I have to get up and go use another computer to “check” in, I think that is now a good thing. Time to get some work done!

Do you use Facebook to much? Are you willing to join me increasing your productivity?

 

Scariest thing in the world is to face yourself

 

Earlier this afternoon, Richard Brooke share this great video, to a a response by someone earlier this months that said, “Hey Mr. President  how you gunna help me get a job when I graduate.”

Like Richard said, this video is a must watch. It is not political.

It’s just a different more universal/spirtual way of answering the question.
