IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO START!!
February 29th 2012
Hello again, Hope all is great with you. Once again, let me start this post with another joke:
A man is home alone when a sheriff's deputy rings his doorbbell. "What can I do for you, officer?" he says. The deputy asks if he's married.
"Yes. I am, the man replies.
"Do you have a recent photo of your wife" the deputy asks.
"Sure", the guy says, then gets a photo.
Taking a look, the deputy says, "Sorry sir, but it looks like your wife's been hit by a truck".
The guy replies, "I know, but she has a great personality and is an excellent cook".
Hope that made you chuckle a little bit. Alright, I suppose it's time to get serious a little...When I was in the freeworld like you, I was playing the "rat-race" of trying to survive and support 5 people. Making sure they had a roof over their heads, food in their stomachs, movies to watch, clothes to wear, and a warm place to sleep. That's not easy to do when your making minimum wage and 40 hours a week at one job, and trying to grow a business...
Little did I know, I was on the right track, but going about it the wrong way. I didn't have any extra time to sit down and read any books. I didn't have time to search for a different way to get ahead.
And as far as I'm concerned, the only good thing about being in prison, is I know have the time to read what I wish I would have taken the time to read in the wrold. Then theres the part that if I would have listened to my Uncle Bill, I probably wouldn't be here now...
But I've realized something...my past will continue to be my future if I drag it along with me! this goes for you too.
David Bach said it best! "If your not yet who you want to be, get over it. You can become the person you really want to be. and if your not yet as rich as you want to be, stop focusin on what you haven't done adn start focusing on what you want to do"
Of course I know he's right, and so do you. Which leads me to ask you the following questions!
1) When was the last time you expereined real joy?
2) What makes you happy?
3) What do you love to do?
4) What would you do with your life today if you weren't afraid of failure?
You can leave your answers in the comment section, or you can write me with your answers. whichever you choose, the one your comfortable with, if any, ans yourself thse questions and answer them honestly. It won't do any good if you aren't completely honest with yourself...or me.
Now that I have the time to sit down and really comprehend the books I have, I'm coming to realize that if I had taken the time in the world, things would be different.
My problem wasn't that I didn't know there was a way...My problem was I couldn't take the time to read the road map. I didn't have the information to get on the road I knew was there, but instead, I continured taking the wrong turns. If only i'd picked up a book...
A book doesn't change a person though...People do! Books give us the information to make the choices we need to to change..in other words, a book is like a road atlas...when you pick up an atlas, what your really looking at, is a diagram of where someone has gone before you. They created the atlas from their's and others journey's. Then they drew it so the next person to go that way wouldn't make the same mistakes and gets them there faster, without as many problems... or if they did make a wrong turn, they have something to look at and say, "...Oh, that's where I messed up".
A book is a road map that others have lived and is now trying to help you by telling you where to tur or not to turn, as well as the short cuts to go around. either you can follow that advice and use it to avoid the same problems..or you could just ignore it, and say. "Oh, I'll never be that stupid".
So what's my point?
My point is I wish someone would have taught me what I;'ve learned from reading, while in prison, when I was a kid. What I've learned just from reading. If it was taught to the younger generations while they were in school today, would cahnge alot of their lives, for the better.
Although it would have a positive impact on the next generaton, it's not the youngest generation I'm thinking about...I'm thinking of everyone...I'm thinking of you...and I'm thinking of me...Do you live paycheck to paycheck? Are you paying rent for an apartment? or a house?
What if someone told you that there was a way, no matter your age, race, or gender, where you ould actually enjoy your life, becoming financially secure, own, not rent, your own home (or several homes) and live the good life? What would you say?
Now,what if that person als told you that he's willing to shame all the information he knows and learns, with you, for FREE? that's right, FREE!
I am not an expert! I'll be the first one to tell you that! What I have is the desire to give others what I've learned. This wasn't done for me and since I am no longer in the "rat-race", I have the time, and through my blog, access to reading good books and passing out information that canand will make your life easier. What I don't know, which you can be sure I'll tell you, we can learn together. Isn't it our duty to try and help the next person onto their feet?
What I want to do is give you the information I can, so that you can find and use other information that will help you or someone you know. I will write my opinion, but i'll try to nevr write anything that I don't believe in. And if it's wrong, please don't hesitate to tell me why you think it's wrong.
There are two ways we can do this, and their both your choice. Either you can leave your comments and/or questions on my blog page, whicb I will get and respond to. Or, you can write me directly at my address below, which would be faster, and more direct to you questions. As I said, however you choose to do it, is alright with me. All you have to do is make the decision that you want to change your life so you can enjoy it.
I've got one last question for you;
Do you know way renters stay poor and homeowners get rich?
Look ahead, take a stab at it. Tell me what you think the answer is and why.
Let me leave you with this until next week:
"You don't get rich by working hard; you get rich by working smart!!
