It is lunacy to work for a wage

I am realizing it is time to put some serious effort to get a valuable skill.  I was debating between automotive technology and physical fitness trainer. I decided, being overweight indicated physical fitness was more important than automotive technology. I spent about 2 hours listening to my physical fitness DVD. Then I started looking the wages that were being offered and they were ridiculously low considering the amount of specialized knowledge you need to do the work. I mean, if I want to approach this like an expert I need to really know my stuff.

$20 per hour, for example, is just too low. I will not work for that amount considering the amount of special care I have to put into learning my client. Even though I want to learn the NASM. I would work one on one with private clients and charge them $80 per hour.

Medical Providers Grants Pass

The purpose of this blog is to identify medical providers within Grants Pass. This includes medical providers, dental providers, eye care doctors, and naturopathic providers. This blog intends to give the general public a resource in which to research their medical choices. In my pursuit to locate a suitable team of medical providers, I felt it necessary to research the professionals available. In order to determine the most suitable for my needs, I felt a compilation of relevant data was necessary.

Why I quit the video game business

Back when I was a teen, I would make spending money by going to yard sales, thrift shops, pawn shops and game stores looking for games I could turn a profit on. The downside was it took a lot of time and many times I came up empty handed. In terms of making consistent money it didn’t happen. On many occasions I got lucky but it was never enough to write home about. Even though I tried to make it work, it never did. I hustled a lot and didn’t make much money because I couldn’t control the source of the supply. I had to hunt and hope I would get lucky. Ultimately, I abandoned the whole operation. I got a full time job and put in my time. Every now and then I would get lucky and spot something worth money. I would job on the opportunity and turn a profit. Once again, I did not make enough to write home about. I might make $10, $20-$40-$50 on any transaction. What I really needed to be doing was driving sellers to my own store. Where I live there is a vintage game store and they do well enough to stay in business but they aren’t thriving, they have the same problem as I do. They can’t keep the vintage games in stock. It is a bad business to sell vintage games because you never know when something is going to come in. When what a store needs is a constant supply of these games. Every now and then I will get lucky and I will think man if I could just do this more, I could quit my day job. Then after turning on the nitro I realize that it is just as hopeless as it was when I did it years ago. It happened to me again, I felt I should write up this blog to remind myself and explain to anyone thinking of doing what I did to not do it. Trust me, I wasted enough hours of my own life, no sense in you doing it too. As much as I wish there was a market for buying and selling vintage games, there just isn’t. That is mainly why almost no one is doing it. There isn’t enough cash to be made. And I don’t want to waste one more hour of my life inspecting and negotiating deals trying to buy games and consoles, it is too much effort for the pay off. I need something else. It is a tough racket and it is getting even tougher. Unless you have your own game store, forget it. Take my word and don’t waste your time.

The Game by Neil Strauss Ice Edition

I first encountered this book while I was browsing Barnes and Noble. It was the title that caught my interest. “The Game: Penetrating the secret society of pick up artists”. At the time I was wet behind the ears and as green as they come when it comes to dating and women. I have always been the type to browse books just to pass the time. Due to this behavior, I have come across some real gems.

What I can tell you is this book is a page turned. I am a blogger and author and I am very selective of what I consider excellent writing. I can saw honestly that Neil did a top notch job in writing his book. The story was great, the writing was great and the content was great. There are a handful of books that I am glad I found and this book is one of them. I learned a lot about women from reading his book.

If you feel lost when it comes to women, you need to read this book. Trust me! This book will give you confidence after you read about how he approached dating women. There are some people who will say the book is very shallow and empty. To be fair, the women that Neil went after were not your make a wife type women. This book would be better for a man who is looking for a one nighter or a man who wants to use some of the skills to get a decent woman.

Neil ends up leaving the PUA community because of how superficial the whole situation is. That should not deter you from gaining valuable insight about how to be around women. here is a link to where you can buy a brand new copy of his book:

I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and I will recommend it to any man who can’t get a girlfriend.

It will change your life, believe me.

#youcannothandlethetruth

I wrote a answer on http://www.quora.com and it was a really well thought out sophisticated answer. I was certain that I would get lots of views and votes. Instead what happened was my answer got deleted! lol. Can you believe that! It was then it became extremely clear that people flat out don’t want to hear/read the truth. In the past I have questioned my position on certain topics and I admitted I could be mistaken. Not this time, I knew that what I was saying was completely true. The fact is people just want to complain and whine. They DO NOT want to see or hear the truth. I then realized that is why people don’t tell the truth, the people who did got flak for speaking the truth. Now I understand why everyone lies, because people want to believe lies.

That’s it. I am done. I am not going to cast my pearls before swine anymore. I know the truth. I spoke the truth and now I know for a fact the people who ignore me are ignorant. They wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped them in the face. So be it, I decided I would not try to convince anyone of the truth. I would not try to educate anyone. Most people are ignorant and petty. I don’t want anything to do with these kinds of people. Ignorant people are dangeous.

Just like I developed a new belief that says “No good deed goes unpunished”. Up until now I was looking for validation from the people around me. I never got any and now I know why. No wonder the masses think that great success is mysterious. They are so far out of the loop they can’t imagine having great success in anything. I don’t want to be like that. I CAN’T be like that. Not unless I want to be one of the human animals running around. These people think their thoughts are law. They don’t even realize they are not their thoughts. I used to think my thoughts were me and I had to answer to these thoughts, then I realized I don’t.

 

I wanted to create

The thought is a seed. the feeling is the water. Who we are is the earth that our seed is formed.

I never realized before that I was creating my experience with other people. My thoughts and feeling about people were communicated through my thoughts. Had I approached others and held no thoughts in my mind, they would have nothing to react to. Instead, people reacted adversely even if I didn’t say anything. It was all in my face. How I felt was plain as day written on my face. I realized that I could influence the behavior of others by simply keeping an eye on my feelings and my thoughts. I was telegraphing my feelings towards everyone.

I learned that I could make people feel things simply by being mindful of my thoughts. It isn’t that they could read my mind, they were able however, to read my face. They could also read my eyes. They say, the eyes are a window to the soul. I would say, it is true. From now on, I will be practicing keeping my mind blank. At one point in order to keep from thinking or feeling anything I just kept repeating in my mind “I am cool” Then I formed an image of me looking cool and suddenly I felt cooler lol.

It is body language.

How to become rich: Jameson Edition

             THE MILLION DOLLAR PUZZLE

 

You have decided like millions of other people that you want to be rich. But where do you start? 13 years ago, I typed “How to become rich” into Google. At the time I was wet behind the ears and I didn’t know much. As Tony Robbins would say ” You aren’t asking the right question”. The difference between me and you is, I know what you don’t. I know that the right question is not “How to become rich”. You don’t just become rich. I might bruise your ego with this but you don’t know enough to realize you are in way over your head. If you have to ask the “How to become rich” question, you have no idea what you are up against.

I could sit here and type out every tiny detail that you should know about being rich. The trouble is, you won’t be prepared. You don’t go from jobless, broke, or employed for chicken feed and become rich. I have just explained the first half of the puzzle to you. If you are like me you pick up get rich quick books or buy courses that promise to make you rich if you just spend $67. You can no doubt learn from these experiences, but you won’t become rich. You see the people writing the get rich quick books and selling the courses figured out they didn’t know how to get rich. Their only plan was to claim to know how to get rich and sell the information to some sucker who also wanted to get rich.

Nobody wants to think of themselves as a sucker. But if you don’t know who the sucker is, you are the sucker my friend. You are likely aware I have not told you how to get rich. That is because even if I told you, you wouldn’t have the skills to make use of the information I give you. What to do, what to do. There are two approaches to being rich. You either give your money to someone who is skilled in finance or you learn the skills of finance yourself.There is a whole box of content about finance, at its core though, it is simple. At least in theory. Execution of the principles isn’t so easy unless you know one thing.

I’ll say it again, I have the whole picture. I used to be like you. I used to dream of being rich and having the better life. I would search the internet for hours trying to find someone who knew how I could become rich. Over the course of 13 years, NO ONE ever told me how to improve my life or how to make a million dollars. Do you know what did happen? I found clues, I found pieces to the puzzle. Clue after clue, I gained puzzle piece after puzzle piece. I solved riddle after riddle. And I appear before you today with the whole picture. I have solved the riddle. I have formed the complete MILLION DOLLAR PUZZLE.

Was it really difficult? Yes! It took me 13 years to figure everything out! You show me anyone who spent 13 years on anything and I will shake their hand and congratulate them.So, how does a person become rich? Your first lesson : You don’t become rich, unless you win the lottery or inherit millions. Your first lesson is understanding what your words actually mean. People know words and have a basic idea of what the word means. The trouble is they don’t really know what the words they use mean.Talk about a hot mess. How do you explain to someone that what they “know” is not true. They “think” they know but they really don’t know. How do you tell someone who is certain they know something that all these years they thought incorrectly?

What if I told you that I haven’t even barely scratched the surface of the Million Dollar Puzzle? It’s true, I haven’t even barely scratched the surface of all a person needs to know in order to solve the M.D.P

If you think you know so much, why don’t you have the life you want? I am not calling you out. I am just asking you. If you have all the answers why are you still searching and not doing? You don’t have the answers, that is why you are reading this blog. Your second lesson: If you haven’t achieve something, you don’t know anything. You have to approach any problem like you don’t know what you are doing. You have to keep an open mind to everything. Only through careful expirementation can you confirm that something is not true or is true.

Does money issues keep you awake at night?

Do you badly want to be rich?

Do you strongly desire to have the good life?

Have you realized that you know there is something you are missing?

Do you feel as though you have tried everything?

Do you feel as though you have hit a brick wall?

Then you have come to the right place. I solved the riddle and my research has all been added in my new book. I wrote about all the skills I learned that allowed me to discover the key ingredients on how to solve the M.D.P.

I will leave you with this. I went from broke, jobless, homeless, creditless and carless to gaining it all. The skills I learned are ALL in my book. I promise you, if you do not know the skills covered in my book, you will never be rich. I am not a slow person. And it still took me 13 years to put it all together! If you are just starting, how long will it take you doing what I did?

I was jobless: I got a job

I was broke: I got money

I was carless: I got a car

I was homeless: I got a home

I was creditless: I got credit

What you want to know is what books did I read to learn most of what I know. My own book is not mainly about money. What you need to know is what money books did I read that made  all the difference in my finances. There are 3 books that I read that changed my life.

Buy purchasing from my links, you can be guaranteed to get the insider scoop that only I can give you. You could buy the book and read it from anywhere. What you would lose out on is my specialized insight in how to use the book. With every purchase I will include a do
