    ๐ŸŽ™ One thing I've been focusing on is the fact that to have the success you want, you have understand patience. It takes time. This is very macro thinking. @garyvee talks a lot about this, and understands it in a higher level than I do. I'm simply just tapping into it. It's like growing your followers online. Yes, you can use apps to grow followers quickly, but are they quality followers who engage? No. It takes time. It takes #work. It takes #patience. It takes #hustle. It takes #passion. It takes most importantly, #action. So enjoy the journey, because you're going to have to if you want to reach your goals and dreams.

    Great story, @Lance Smith.
    I can imagine how you felt.

    I heard again recently - and fully agree - that once we have our basic needs met, we seek to give back. To help others. (Think Maslow.)
    Some even say, only once we help ourselves, can we then fully help others. (Think of an airplane oxygen mask.)

    Anyway, we are social beings and here to help others whenever we can. It is GREAT that you got the chance AND the feedback!
    Makes life worthwhile.

    I want to share with you a couple of key takeaways I got form #10xGrowthCon.

    1: We cannot allow fear to hold us back from the things we want. Work to our strengths and passions, have fun, and take some risks. Learned this from @therealbradlea.

    2: Make sure you're in the right vehicle. The one that is moving at the right pace, has enough fuel, and going places. We can sit in the wrong vehicle for too long, and never get what we are capable of. Learned this from @jarrodglandt.

    3: Give back to others. Give Give Give. Provide more value than what you get out of the deal. Whether it's in business or relationships. Give Give Give. Learned this from the power couple, @grantcardone and @elenacardone. And every other speaker hit on this too, but they really stand out and exemplify this in a whole different way. They're on the same mission, and living it out.

    I love this quote from the show Star Trek, โ€œI rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.โ€ - Captain Picard.

    I beleive we are born perky vibrant and tight skinned so that we can find love and procreate. We don't start living until 30. Our looks carried us to that point. Now it's experience and wit that carries us the test of the way

    I do find media crazy. Why would I want to play in the sand box again. I would rather have mature experienced folks around. The young deserve each other

    I thinks its when you encounter some people who you know are younger than you - but its like dealing with your parents. I remember working with someone who was an old man, but he was a lot younger than my dadd, and I would never have described him as old.

    As Dennis Price described one Character in "Kind Heart and Coronets" "Lionel has the greatest propensity or middle age in one so young"

    I have to agree...age is just a number! Unfortunately, some of us dread that number but as you said, Katyan, every day is a blessing. It is a gift. It is another opportunity to enjoy or give joy!
    David B. Grinberg
    21/03/2017 #6 David B. Grinberg
    Nice buzz, Katyan! A few thoughts:
    1) I always tell people that age is just a number. It's not the number of years in one's life but the life in those years. It's not how you look, but who you feel.
    2) I think the aging issue increasingly applies to men in modern times, but no where near the level it applies to women. Just think about all those commercials for men about getting rid of gray hair or getting hair treatments to replace baldness, for example. However, as American poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote in his book, Walden, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." Sure that sounds bleak but I think it's somewhat applicable during the "midlife crisis" stage and thereafter. You know, when a 50-something guy purchases that hot new sports car.
    3) Per the above point, there's no doubt that society and the media put undue pressure on women to look good. But that's really superficial when you think about it because what really counts in on the inside, not the outside -- per the old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover." It would be nice if the media/entertainment industry would portray women as more than mere physical beings who must appear emaciated to purportedly look good.
    That's all for now. Keep buzzing, Katyan!

    Age is just a number. It will always matter more to some than others. I can't stand seeing women inject crap into their faces. To me they are advertising that they are over 50 and really insecure about it. They definitely don't look younger with their bulging cheekbones, frozen foreheads and bee stung lips. They look absolutely monstrous most of the time and they will tell you that the women who look terrible are going to the wrong person. They are all going to the wrong person! I say love who you are and let that be the beauty that attracts people to you.

My day job states 9.30 to 2pm but has morphed into a full time situation - now that I am not too happy with because my life is busy - learning all this content marketing stuff, making pearl jewellery, setting up a display cabinet in a shop, late with planting my veggie plants out, there is that ol' boy making eyes at me and in two minds about all that 'bonking' stuff, books to read, music to listen to and still planning to find out about some dodgy chocolate a couple of ol' dears (like myself) are raging about - my day it was hash cookies.....what on earth is the world coming to...... and I just bought some fabulous new jeans that I plan to wear with a great stripy top (of course I will have to wear thermals - one feels the cold you know) - I refuse to dye my hair and will only put on make up for the odd glam occasion. Laugh, strut your stuff and take a closer look at those commenting.....generally they have quite a few problems of their own that they are not owning. You look great so go out and spread that 'greatness' that is you! (Phew - that is my support box depleted for today - have fun)

    I've come to the conclusion that there are three kinds of people in the world:
    1. Those who don't know what they don't know and hence are not capable of giving advice
    2. Those who know what they know and what they don't and can give advice on matters in their knowledge base
    3. Those those that ask for advice from the knowledgeable, listen and then find out for themselves.

    Of these the last is what I believe we should aim for while avoiding the unsolicited little voice in your head that says, "what makes you think you can..."

    Most people do not have the spine to have the conversation, "You are not good enough" ~ so they will passively aggressive ghost you in standard non-reply mode and hope you will get the hint......of course they made this grand decision of you in about 6 seconds between their Angry Birds game and live Instagram feed update 8?/ This is both Dating and HR - draw your conclusions and Venn Diagram as you will. PS - the military was always ready and eager to tell you what a worthless piece of shit you were - it built character.

    Excellent reflection! All professionals without exception have skills to perform certain functions, but there are few who are able to recognize their failures. It's no use having a huge bag of knowledge and experience if you do not have your self-esteem elevated, for whatever you do will be considered by others a disaster, that's how the world turns. The superego is also not the best solution, but it is what masks the shortcomings of many of the bosses currently employed in the labor market. Throughout my career I have also been rejected several times in companies that I considered excellence, but I realized that many were afraid that I would take on a smaller position and be able to take their position as manager over time, comfortable position of boss, and look that some even came to tell me this, but I never let myself be beaten by the negative words, quite the contrary, then later I realized the good that they themselves had done to me. I would never have the knowledge to grow in my career with people who had nothing to add. Beginning to write a blog, a book or articles is really a very arduous task, especially when we have the ardent desire to show all those who rejected us one day, that we have enough knowledge and experiences to share with anyone who knows nothing, but it is the determination and self-esteem that keep us going. And over time we realize how much being a blogger or writer or an author does us well, and make us leverage not only our career but also highlights us in the environment we live in, that is making a difference, not just behind of an office desk thinking that it is changing the lives of subordinates, the organization, or even their own career. Everyone should experience this experience because they would know where their strengths or weaknesses in their professional career lie.

    And not everyone will tell you you're not good enough straight to your face. If it's implied rather than expressed, well, that may be even more destructive. One can respond to a direct put down with a sound 'FU', but when the put down is implicit, it plants insidious seeds of doubt in the mind.

    Then there are those who tell you what you can't do out of sincere desire to keep you from failing.

    Thanks, John for another thought-provoking article.

    Very interesting post, @John White, MBA. I've had my share of firings and toxic bosses as well. Interestingly enough, every time I've been fired, my boss has said "You do good work, Robert, but we're letting you go." I may write about this one day. It seems the day you stop nodding your head, you're a target. Head nodders always last longer than head shakers. Nobody has a problem with a "kiss ass" but if you fight, you have legions of people wishing you'd just go away. Thanks for the post.

    John thanks for writing this. I occasionally ask myself what motivates me and one thing I always come back to was back in the late 1970's when I totally messed up my GCSE's, (too much partying). My English teacher told me I would never amount to anything so I left school with very few qualifications and have WORKED ever since. I have never been out of work, even after redundancy. I'm lucky to have met and worked with some fantastic people over the years who have helped and supported me, but I'd also like to thank my English teacher who told me I'd never be good enough.

    @John White, MBA Great to hear a story of recognition of what holds us back and what supports us in moving forward in our lives. If I surround myself with people who have higher expectations of me that I have of myself, then I will exceed my own expectations. My grandparents, my parents, my wife, my first manager, my friend who taught me squash, my friends, I can recite a long list of those who had higher expectations of me than I had of myself. There is a long list of detractors and belittlers but their names and roles have been crossed out so heavily I can't recall the names. Kia Kaha John, you do good service here.

    This article still inspires me @John White, MBA. For some reason, some people's titles have intimidated me. I think it depends on how they treat others with regards to being intimidated. I just wrote a small story about midlife and some feelings/fears I'm facing. My husband said, "Why do you write negative things when you do so many positive things in life?" I told him, I write what comes to mind and my writing does depend on my mood. Even articles that some may view as negative well, others can relate and I've found it can start conversations that lead to putting our heads together. At other times I admit, it's just cathartic. By the way, @David B. Grinberg tagged you, your company & I added your publications to the tag on my last post which is on Thriveglobal. You are an inspiration to so many and one day I would love to chat with you on the phone when you have time. I have a few ideas and I could use sound advice from someone like yourself! Kudos to you for ignoring the haters and letting them ignite your flame!

    "You don't have to listen to what everyone else thinks." A great article. @John White, MBA

    @John White, MBA - enjoyed this post --- what helped me was accepting that I was good enough (coming from a family of perfectionists, this was a big step for me!) This quote: "Always remember, the people who say you can't do something can't do it either!" So true - and when you do it, they really don't like you, so better to leave them in the dust!

    #5 This is very topical because I saw an interview with Matt Damon where the interviewer asked how his mentor in what was a regular school in Boston end up producing three Oscar winners in Damon, the two Afleck brothers. It is the way he fondly remembered his mentors that showed me just how many people in life are unsung heroes.

    I believe that when we have that level of gratitude, that emotive energy can be sufficient to override the negative batteries that drain us of energy and life.

    We know when we come across a negative battery, for their only purpose is to drain us, and so it is important to recognize these effects but also supplement positive effects that Matt Damon expressed in his great affection and tribute to his high school drama teacher, a man who selflessly taught his art so others could achieve the impossible dreams. We cannot let our lives be defined by tormentors when there are these mentors that you have expressed in our life.

    Writing is a good way to get clarity. I think it work marvelouslly if a person reads you and writes thoughts about it somewhere for reflection. At a place where it can stand alone.

    Not only as a comment that disappears between many comments but something for oneself to go back to after reading you.

    Just a thought.

    How to Live ON PURPOSE and Maximize Every Freaking Day

    Today can be as great as you want it to be.
    Your fate isnโ€™t set. You get to decide how much of yourself youโ€™re going to put into today.
    Rather than saying, โ€œWell, weโ€™ll see what happens,โ€ you must powerfully state, โ€œToday, Iโ€™m going to make it happen!โ€
    When you go into the gym, you get to decide how hard youโ€™re going to work out. But one thing is for certain, youโ€™ll feel far better if you walk out 30โ€“60 minutes later having given it everything youโ€™ve got.
    The same goes with your day.
    Itโ€™s actually far more exhausting to not work than it is to work. It takes far more energy sitting with internal conflict and justification than it does to just get to work. Said Steven Pressfield, โ€œMost of us have two lives: the life we liveand the un-lived life within us. Between the two stands resistance.โ€
    If your life feels out-of-whack or out-of-balance, youโ€™re likely avoiding the very thing you should be doing. Itโ€™s only in doing that thing that youโ€™ll regain balance and peace. Avoidance leads to busyness and distraction.

    "The relevance of Rumi's teachings in today's world"

    MON 3/20, 12pm CST

    Link to upcoming show:

    Many people all over the world today feel lost, divided, disheartened, and anxious of our collective future. In some ways, that is rightly so with everything we see on the news. But at the same time, we must keep hope alive and take actions towards making our world the way we'd like it to be.

    Dr Mansour Malik joins us to share some insight on one of the world's wisest human beings. Rumi was known as a Muslim Poet, Jurist, Scholar, Theologian, and Mystic. Hopefully today's show will remind listeners of our spiritual roles on this planet and how taking care of our soul's is very much a part of wellness.

    Dr Mansour Malik is an international lawyer from U.A.E. and has served clients the world over. He is also the Chairman of International Diplomat Magazine and the Diplomat Business Club. His most important role however is helping bring people together by actively promoting peace and love.

    @Aleta Curry, thank you for sharing this post and tribute to @John White, MBA. He is one of my favorite contributors who I have learned a great deal from (mostly silently in the wings). My husband occasionally will nudge me about the time that I spend on social media too but then I remind him about my long term goals for writing and he usually comes around. There are many inspiring people here and on other platforms and it is because of them that I continually inspired to keep cultivating and writing content. I look forward to reading more of yours.

    #5 You made me literally LOL, @Harvey Lloyd. What a good sport!

    If your first introduction to social media was Facebook, I can well understand your disdain, because I shared it.

    Facebook has since become one of our best marketing tools (I've got an article about that floating about somewhere), but when it comes to social media platforms, there's no one-size-fits-all. You're going to have to wiggle on the end of the hook for a while in order to realise what will work best for you.

    Probably not; that's why we have to tell him, and all the Bees who are just like him.

    Nobody's commenting skills rival Deb's, so as the kids say, 'don't even try it!' (Do the kids still say that?)

    Walking in the LIGHT.......
    is not a path
    you stumble upon by accident.
    It is one of CHOICE
    and of struggle through the DARKNESS.

    must know darkness
    along with being comfortable
    in the shadows-
    for that is where Light is needed most.

    "Facing your Demons"

    Show link:

    In life we all go through ups & downs. We have light and darkness.

    Most people today struggle through with life. However, the danger with struggling is allowing the demons of life to take over our attitude, approach, and behaviors.

    Demons create a battle within us where we allow the external to conflict with our internal value system.

    Demons expose themselves in many ways. Our hope is to talk about these challenges and ways to overcome them so we don't become those demons.
