power: WE FORGET THE POWER WE HAVE - 07/16/14 07:13 AM
Lets start with your word. This can accomplish great feats, motivate people, create, destroy and cause movement that leads to action or inaction. Stop and ponder this. I meet people all-day who completely misuse and disrespect their own word that comes out of their mouth. I come from the point of view that I believe a person until I have a reason not to believe that person. The persons word controls that outcome
I DON'T GET IT
Here's another. What price do you put on credibility? Your word supports this action and if you misuse your word, you automatically lose credibility. These things are are beyond purchase and more important than … (6 comments)

power: IT'S THE GREED THAT DOES IT - 05/31/14 07:11 AM
Greed doesn't look good on a human being. It just wasn't made to be a part of our natural make up or demeanor. GREED: An intense and selfish desire for something like food, power, fame, wealth or a material object usually over and above the normal requirement or satisfaction
Wealth: How much is enough? Beyond food, shelter and clothing and perhaps setting up a long term plan that provides for a reasonable life of leisure, what do you do with the extra? Who owns who after a while? What is leisure? Are we supposed to gather all we can while we can?
Food: How much can … (17 comments)

power: SECOND ANNUAL EVERYTHING HERE IS THE OPPOSITE POST - 12/21/13 06:52 AM
Don't click on the post. It is a waste of your time. You will not be amused, entertained or loved while doing it. It has no meaning and your life is meaningless anyway. Behold the power we give words by thinking, stating and implying. The sender can do as they wish, but the receiver can too
COMMAND THE OUTCOME
I am an advocate of "if you have something to say, SAY IT" and "if you have something to do" DO IT! What the receiver does with it after that is their prerogative and privilege. With that in mind, practice your selectivity skills and … (14 comments)

power: THE ONE THING CONTEST CHAPTER ON WILLPOWER I RESPOND MYSTICALLY TO IT - 04/18/13 02:23 PM
Now here is an interesting subject (willpower) that has much history to consult with. We have centuries of data that clearly show mankind and its desires at work and also not at work. In all cases , we were found wanting. You see there is a little known dynamic that people have heard about but often do not stop to ponder because the thing being pondered would be in jeopardy if you did...I am speaking of the EGO and its pal...PRIDE
WE HAVE THE WORDS BUT NOT THE MUSIC
Mans best efforts pale and fail no matter what task is handed … (2 comments)

power: I KNOW OF A MAN...story...TRUE TALES FROM THE REAL ESTATE FRONT - 03/08/13 07:33 AM
I know of a man and this is a true story who took the advice of his CPA that he knew for years. Now there is nothing unusual about that. I personally have been using the same source for over 25 years and I am very pleased at her expertise. However this other fellow trusted his source who told him about a way to shelter Real Estate monies that was perfectly legal
TAX PLAN ACTIVATED
The idea was well thought out, was at work already with many others and then implemented by this "man" in my story. Year after year, they … (6 comments)

power: I AM BUYING EVERYBODY LUNCH ON ACTIVERAIN...read the small print - 09/10/12 05:35 PM
I decided to do a little experiment involving the Readers Digest contest. You know the one that offers you millions of dollars, lump sums, payments for life and of course other free prizes without end. All you have to do is enter and of course WIN. Well lunch is on me if I do my fellow RAINMAKERS...But don't start fasting for the big day yet
MONTHS AND MONTHS
So for months now, I entered my wife in the contest. It is daunting to wade through all the communications they send you. You must find several items, cut or peel them out, and … (9 comments)

power: TEN CENTS OR TEN MILLION WE ALL DIE POOR - 05/05/12 03:32 PM
Trying to prove otherwise is folly. Look, the Pharaohs of old gave this subject a lot of time and attention. Somehow they concluded that there is another world you go to after you leave here and that you can set your self up for it from here. So, they replicated in their tombs on earth for a lifestyle that they wanted in the other world....hmm
THESE GUYS ARE RUNNING A COUNTRY?
Please note that they were considered Gods and all-powerful rulers for their time. But I find their thinking process defective. First, lets finish the story. They died, were buried and then years went by … (6 comments)

power: LIFE IS AS SWEET OR SOUR AS YOU MAKE IT TO BE - 03/19/12 11:51 AM
I used to watch people with interest on how they prepare their coffee of tea. It is a ritual for some and an automatic response for others. You can tell those that have been around and those just getting started and working it out. Some people know that two sugars will produce their required sweet taste. Others experiment
GOT THE DRINK NOW DO YOU HAVE.... LIFE?
With tea, to lemon or not to sweeten or not and to have with or without milk remains the focus. If that is not enough, there is a order in which this is all done. … (4 comments)

power: TOO FAMOUS TOO RICH TOO POWERFUL TOO MUCH - 02/28/12 09:51 AM
I recorded the Oscars because I cannot stand the commercials. I also don't like some of the categories while important to some, bore me to tears. You can't help but notice the egos, pride, power, manipulation and all the rest of it at work too. It is sort of a quick study on human nature and what goes on at the top
I'M SORRY...BUT IF THIS IS LIFE AT THE TOP, LEAVE ME OUT OF IT
These are not real people worthy of any serious accomplishments. This is pure questionable entertainment and with very few exceptions. The whole thing is money/ego driven with the people … (6 comments)

power: THERE IS NOTHING HOLDING YOU BACK - 01/11/12 03:21 PM
Anything you set out to do will be done. People practice this on routine everyday matters. There is absolutely no reason why this would not work for larger matters too. First, we were not put here to be defeated. Second, in America, you go until you had enough. Lastly, watch out for things that tell you otherwise or cause doubt
PRIDE, EGO, AND OTHER THINGS....
Blaming others or having excuses are robbers in disguise. They are deceivers too because they would have you believe that someone or something is keeping you from succeeding. Nothing has the power to stop you and … (2 comments)

power: HAVING EYES AND EARS DOESNT GURANTEE THAT YOU WILL SEE - 11/21/11 12:43 PM
I remember when I first got into the Restaurant business. A seasoned pro second generation took me under his wing and began for me an extra-ordinary journey into this industry and career field. Having the savvy and experience allows sight and hearing far above the casual visitor or observer
THE PARKING LOT SPEAKS
The man owned a chain of restaurants and took me to one. The education started from when we parked and then approached the restaurant. He was busy picking up trash and debris on the way in as well as looking at the landscape and approach to the restaurant. … (4 comments)

power: SAME OLD NONSENSE WITH POLITICS CAMPAIGNS AND PROMISES - 11/07/11 06:22 PM
Anyone with power, fame, and money thinks they have our solutions. Of course all their friends have money, power and fame too. So what happens in the world of rich, famous, and powerful people who have everything and want more more and more? Someone says to them, hey, run for office
NO ONE STANDS OUT
Not one of them is qualified to run anything in my opinion. The selfish motives for running for office are what is motivating the candidates. Not one has a love of country, man and the well being of their fellow Americans. In addition, I am not … (6 comments)

power: LUCILLE BALL SAID THIS AND IT STUCK WITH ME - 10/27/11 11:18 AM
I read a book written by her at that time friend and confidant who shared Lucy's personal sides and opinions. He describes Lucy and himself flying over the United States and looking down at all the lights below. Lucy then says, you see all those lights below...those are homes and if I knocked on anyone of their doors, they would let me in
YES, THEY WOULD LET YOU IN...WOW
I never forgot that statement. There is so much to glean from it in many categories. Her work could be summed up as making people laugh at her first.... and then themselves. … (7 comments)

power: OBAMA SPEECH THURSDAY HAS TO HIT GROUND RUNNING HARD - 09/07/11 06:03 PM
The President of the United States of America. It is the most powerful position to occupy here on the planet earth. On the Presidents order during 9-11, airports were shut off all over the United States down to even small towns everywhere. Now that is Presidential power at work. I want to see that POWER at work addressing people keeping their homes, in creating jobs and in moving the economy forward with gusto
ACTION PLANS THAT GO TO WORK NOW
I want to hear and be told of action plans that are non-negotiable and they will take affect immediately. I will … (10 comments)

power: WHOEVER CONTROLS WHAT PEOPLE WANT CONTROLS PEOPLE THE BANKS AT WORK - 08/11/11 03:17 PM
Power, wealth and ruling can be traced back to the basics which is simply the title of the post. He who has the gold rules is rampant right now instead of the golden rule which is to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The staples of the human being who journeys is food, shelter and clothing. We are being held hostage on shelter
THE PROBLEM IS COMPLEX ON PURPOSE TO HIDE THE SOLUTION
I apologize for over simplifying this problem. I am sure that you can complicate it with an explanation that would rival an Einstein … (2 comments)

power: EXCESSIVE POWER MAKES YOU DEAF.....MASSIVE WEALTH MAKES YOU BLIND - 08/18/10 10:14 AM
The lack of both......makes you mute. We must never become deaf, blind, or mute; Because in all cases we lose. We lose as individuals, as families and we put society at large at risk. Why then do we pursue these things like if they were life or death? These things come with a great deal of personal responsibility.
Be very aware that the systems that run our great country are all business based. They have to be in order to serve the masses. People can choose to interact with others on a intimate level, but the government not only doesn't want … (13 comments)
