Overcoming Adversity (2 of 2)

Overcoming Adversity: (Part 2 of 2)

Conclusion

(I know you’re in suspense!)

Part 1 offered this thought: People don’t live up to their potential because they are told they can’t!

How do we overcome this negativity?

The power of success is within us and we have to understand that we all face adversity regardless of where we come from which is why adversity is a natural occurrence.

1.     Self discipline: develop a mental attitude that controls emotions, sexuality, eating; control what you say by thinking before you speak and focus your mind on positive actions to gain mental peace.

2.    Acquire a pleasing personality that improves your likeability factor.

Personality is within your control and causes people to like or dislike us.

Personality can be controlled through your reactions, direction of your enthusiasm, and through self discipline.

Let other people speak instead of leading the conversation (Listen) and be careful of the sarcasm that is used during conversation because it can trigger negativity in your audience.

Hint from Napoleon Hill:

  • Finding fault with the world at large is not pleasing to others and indifference when others are speaking is resented
  • Don’t flatter where it is not deserved because it comes off as insincere and you lose trust
  • Don’t talk about your problems

3.    Most of all: Uncompromising faith in seeing your success out till the end.

Being able to see something where there is nothing is what makes the average great.

Defeat is life’s test to you.

Get rid of all doubts and you will get as far as the amount of faith you have in succeeding.

4.    Always exceed expectations!

5.    Lastly, form an alliance with a trusted co-partner whether your Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Wife, Husband.

As long as you have full trust and clear communication your togetherness will provide a compounding of success.

This will get you past your limit and get you to the next level.

I have faith that you will embrace your struggles and choose not to take the line of least resistance.

Overcoming Adversity: (Part 1 of 2)

Overcoming Adversity: (Part 1 of 2)

Adversity and Defeat: two terms no one wants to face. Why?

Because it takes too much effort – but, unfortunately, none of us will get through life without facing these obstacles.

I outline methods here that help us deal with these uncomfortable moments in life.

Adversity and Defeat are the universe’s way of disciplining us!

A direction is provided for us to follow, but we have to be aware of the new opportunity, and stay alert instead of letting the moment get us down.

We need to set a personal initiative to force our will to achieve no matter the resistance.

We can accomplish this with pure enthusiasm and by putting our inner strength into action.  Knowledge is power but only when we use it.

The key to overcoming adversity & defeat is to keep a positive mental attitude (I can, I will).

Examples:

  • Refrain from controversy
  • Set your mind to positive
  • Ask leading questions to draw people to what you want
  • Have a good laugh when irritated
  • Have gratitude for your experiences
  • Focus on the can-do, strength grows from struggles
  • There are no unprofitable experiences
  • Life is an education
  • Comment positively on others
  • Be critical about oneself
  • Do not accept anything that you do not desire
  • Stay engaged in your purpose in life

More Techniques:

If you feel sorry for yourself due to certain specific circumstances, find someone who is in a worse off position in life and understand that it could always be worse.

Choose a role-model that you look up to and emulate them, we all admire someone so why not choose the best.

Whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve.

“Your thoughts can become reality if you let them which is why we need to fight the negative and concentrate on the positive.”

Why do most people fail to live up to their potential?

Because they are told that they can’t!

We are told that we can only get so far in life or that we have to work to climb the ladder of success and that there is a system that we need to follow to get to our dreams.

These forces of culture have trained us to formulate our attitudes towards the world around us in a certain way which is why we have to train ourselves to be positive – it doesn’t come naturally.

Tune in for the conclusion!

End Bullying!!

End Bullying!!

When is the system going to implement a zero-tolerance rule against bullying?

What is it going to take for the system to understand the importance of fighting the bullying phenomenon?

How many more kids have to die before drastic measures have to be taken?

It all starts and ends with the system and our leaders need to take action to end the misery experienced by victims of bullying.

Why is bullying allowed to persist and why is it overlooked by school administrations?

Not enough is being done and the little that is being put together is not enough.

Real change needs to happen in the school culture in order to keep our kids safe.

A girl throws herself in front of a NYC Bus to end her misery two days after Christmas because she can’t take the torture of being bullied anymore and there was no one there to help her.

Everyone knew of her situation including the school and no one could help her – Kid bullies are ruthless because it provides them a sense of power.

The system needs to take the power out of young kid’s hands by removing the ability to bully others so innocent kids don’t have to die.

Bullying is a vicious cycle that damages good kids and destroys the integrity of the educational system.

Suicide becomes an epidemic that is contagious and more kids are opting for suicide.

People ignore bullying until it affects their neighborhood or their own family!!

How could you help prevent bullying before it affects you?

Political Power Struggle, Corruption, and Unemployment

Political Power Struggle, Corruption, and Unemployment 

What is the connection?

This will shock you!!

Who will you choose to be the next President of the United States of America?

Does it really matter?

Will one person with mutually aligned values and principles really make a difference among a system where incentives rule the divide?

Can one person change a system that has been tweaked over the decades to aid politicians to meet their own greedy ends?

Did you see the 60 Minutes segment where law makers are allowed to use private information to trade stock options to make money before the information goes public?

Did you know that this behavior is the same behavior that is getting high profile traders and CEOs put in jail – Only the law makers are legally allowed to make money on this information before it goes public!!

  • Nancy Pelosi made a fortune with Visa options based on private information – Makes you think!!!

Did you know that most Politicians make less than 200k a year and the majority leave office multi-millionaires?

How does that happen?

Why did the whole Republican Party vote against every single proposal of our Democratic President?

Is it Conformity?

Is it Power?

Was it because ALL the proposals were no good?

What about the correlation between the OCCUPY movement and Unemployment?

Unemployment numbers are going down – Is it because people are getting jobs or is it from something else?

Did you know – If people are not receiving unemployment benefits then they are not considered unemployed…

If unemployment benefits are denied to qualified unemployed, then the unemployment number goes down, government looks successful, and the economy starts to get better – for investors.

Is this progress?

People that get laid off in exchange for offshoring are suffering to pay their bills and need assistance during transition.

I propose that there is a 9% known Unemployment + a 20% unknown Unemployment + a 20% Underemployment which = 50% + Americans that are NOT reaching their Potential.

The question I pose is – Why?

That question needs to be solved with a change of perspective and creative innovation that leads to positive change.

Holiday Cheer

Peace, Love, and Harmony…

The holiday season is where we show each other love and appreciation through celebration and holiday cheer.

Some express these feelings through gift giving and others express these feelings by being in service to others.

There are many gifts we could give and they all begin with our inner-self.

If we give, speak, and think from a place of goodness then our gifts are pure.

People find fault in others, but this is a projection of the self, and the externalization is not healing the existing problem.

Embrace the spirit of goodness and happiness of the season.

Americans are the most charitable people in the world and there is a reason for this fact.

Give onto others as you would want given onto yourself.

I have been a very charitable person over the course of my life and have given of myself in a variety of ways.

The returns have been extremely fulfilling and I encourage you to give.

Giving is not about money, but rather, about caring, love, respect, understanding, gratitude, sharing, honesty, and humility.

Treat others the same as you would treat yourself and if this is not positive then please take care of yourself first.

In order to have fulfilling relationships and quality in your life, you have to begin with self-love.

Loving yourself is an important first step that needs to be taken before loving others can begin.

The holidays are for reflection over the past year and developing an understanding around how the year in review went.

What are your accomplishments?

What would you have done differently?

How will you improve moving forward?

The holidays are for living in the moment and embracing the holiday spirit.

Do you have family and friends that care about you?

Do you have anyone that you strongly care about? 

How will you share yourself with those you care about during this holiday season?

The holidays are for celebration and happiness.

Materialistic items fill the moment with excitement and appreciation, but these traditional gifts do not bring long term happiness. 

I wish that everyone has the ability to share the gifts that everyone would want in their life, but unfortunately, this cannot always be accomplished for everyone at every time. 

The alternative is long term happiness derived from the moments that are shared with those around you.

Take pictures, physically or mentally, and retain these memories of your life that will fill you with joy for eternity. 

I personally, have been alone on Christmas with a small meal, a few text messages saying Merry Christmas, and a football game. 

Those were learning times that I am grateful for and appreciated because I learned a lot about myself and others.

Today, I share my days with the six most important people in the world and I enjoy every minute of making these moments special and memorable for them. 

I learned from my father, who passed a few years ago, that you need to live life to make memories because when you get old, you have nothing left but your memories.

I wish everyone a memory filled holiday season that is full of positive cheer and loving expression for everyone you care about. 

God bless you, your family, and everyone you encounter in your life.

Transparency

Assumptions and cognitive short-cuts are the way of the world today because there is too much information to handle for anyone.

Brains are growing faster than ever, but information is developing at a much greater rate.

The trick to dealing with information overload is to create a shortcut to understanding external stimulation which usually leads to the wrong answer.

This technique is useful for us when dealing with smaller issues such as when watching TV and buying food, but to be accurate when decision making is important.

Assumptions are self-serving and can damage the understanding of the true processes of the world.

Transparency is a discipline that everyone should honor to help others make correct decisions quickly without coming to false conclusions.

Have you ever been judged by a stranger and feel totally offended because they were completely wrong? 

False conclusions damage communication and transfer negativity across the community by way of complete misunderstanding.

Being completely transparent is one way to reduce false assumptions because this technique enables people to present their true self and share their true identity with the world.

This removes the barriers of protection that others hold because they do not trust. Transparency builds trust and is important for clear communication and relationship building. 

People believe they can understand a person by the way they look, the clothes they wear, the behaviors they use, and the way they speak.

These signals are absolute ways to understand someone and it takes a trained psychologist to get the interpretation correct, but there are many variables that are left out of the equation:

Family background, education, interests, life experiences, preferences, motivation, socio-economic status, learning style, strengths, and weaknesses.

These are only a few of the answered questions when formulating decisions based on assumptions.

Transparency removes the blinders so others can get to know you and freeing yourself from living the world in the dark is gratifying.

The freedom to express who you are freely builds confidence and knowing that you are accepted regardless of your weaknesses is eye-opening.

Transparency helps others become transparent with you and relaxes others because you are sharing your truth.

The truth is a scary concept for a lot of people, but living a lie that you believe, is a nightmare.

Prevention Parenting

Prevention Parenting

The most important aspect to being a great parent is practicing prevention.

I have five kids which gives me a valuable prospective on this issue.

Preventing problems is the #1 tool against dangerous life situations involving your kid/s.

Many parents are concerned with preventing kids from falling down stairs, being bullied at school, and crashing their 1st car, which is excellent, but not fully sufficient prevention.

Prevention begins before you think about conceiving.

Prevention starts right now.

Prevention Parenting is defined by parents proactively participating in a healthy lifestyle.

The next step of prevention begins in the womb.

Keys to Success:

Stay away from all chemicals that would harm a newborn.

Smoke (all kinds), sushi (metals), alcohol (goes without saying), fumes from automobiles,

any type of medication (Doctors say certain meds are safe, but are you willing to risk finding out differently a few years after your child is born?), and any other dangerous compound.

“Get sufficient sleep, stay in a positive state of mind (always), and read-read-read”.

These prevention scenarios, attitudes, and behaviors dramatically shape your child.

Do you want your child to be Healthy, Smart, Alert, and full of Joy?

The work is cut out for you to have a wonderful parenting career but it does require work.

Preparation and prevention before birth makes for a wonderful loving experience during life.

I promise that if you follow Prevention Parenting, the work you put in advance will pay dramatic dividends for your child’s health, intelligence, and overall quality of life.

Additionally,

your life will thrive because of the joy you will feel witnessing your child achieve greatness due to your diligent effort.

This positive feedback loop will provide you with pure happiness that will extend your life cycle and enhance your joy of living.

The best part: Parenting a healthy, intelligent, happy child is much easier than parenting an unhealthy, low on intelligence, unhappy child.

The information for success is here and the choice is yours to make.

The Million Dollar Coaching Company loves children and we hope that you make the right choice.

Thank you for reading this informational memo and we wish you unlimited joy.
