There are two kinds of people. . .

 

. . . and I love them both.

 

There are people that see a sign and ignore it, it’s not for them, it’s for everyone else, and there are those that read the signs and then point the rest of us in the right direction. Keep in mind that signs are not all billboard size and full of information, signs can be subtle, signs can be just a hint or they can come with fanfare. The thing is, a sign could be that split second in life when something new can be introduced that may or may not change or alter ones’ direction.

 

The interesting thing about signs is it doesn’t matter how big and obvious they are, it is up to the individual to actually interpret and appreciate them, some are warnings, some are guides, some are sent by the Universe others come with a smile attached, again, whatever the actual sign is, it has to be noticed and acted upon in order to fully comprehend its meaning.

 

I have never been one to waste time trying to understand the meanings behind many of the signs I have come across, but, to be honest I have found myself quite perplexed with the logic behind some signs, for example: a sign that reads “don’t do this” to some, becomes almost a challenge to do exactly “that”, and it is then I perceive that if the sign advising people of what not to do was not created then what they are not supposed to do would not have become evident and challenged them.

 

That being said, some of the signs I have been fortunate enough to “see” have led me to places I was destined to “be”. Some were presented by friends that have either been there before or wished for me to join them on an adventure, others were, I believe, sent by the Universe and directed right at me, and I was/am insightful enough to change my direction spontaneously (one of the perc’s of having gypsy blood) and see where a new path will take me. Some signs even come with a gift, not as a lure to follow them, but more as a thank you that you did.

 

There are indeed two kinds of people out there, and I am both of them, I have gone out of my way to step on the odd patch of grass, (carefully of course) and I have even temporarily changed my name to “staff” just to see why he has his own door, and I have followed the direction presented to me by subtly obvious signs. I will continue to write my word hugs as per the sign from the Universe, I will continue to work with and beside the youth that choose to share my path, a subtle sign as a result of my writing, and I will follow this path I am on now after seeing the signs that were put up by my friends towards a chemical free, healthy lifestyle, and a new place to shop for things that are good for me.

 

Now I will share these sign with you, for those out there that are that one kind of person, DO NOT go to these sites, there is nothing for you here!!! and for those that are the other kind of person, please go to any one of these sites and have a look at the options to create a cleaner, healthier lifestyle… and yes, the gift that comes with these signs is for you, to thank you because you did. These sites are open to all kinds of people.

There are two places to get recognition. . .

. . .from the mirror and from your peers.

 

“Writers write” said Carrie Mumford during a conversation we were having at a local coffee shop, and those two words have been forefront in my thoughts ever since. I have never given myself the recognition I deserved for being a writer, until recently. I spent all day Sunday, writing, finishing the chapter pages for Volume X of Series Two of BawB’s Raven Feathers. This is something I have been taking for granted for the last five years, the fact that I can sit down every morning and put together a rhyming inspirational quote of my own, never repeating one that I’ve already written, avoiding gender, race, religion and politics, just putting on a smile and creating a word hug that I can share with the world, and then having to come up with a full page, speaking on a one word topic, in the third person, again without being specific while sharing my opinion and not judging, and doing it while a tear rolls down my cheek because it’s the last chapter of the last book I will write in this series titled “Happiness”, yes, yes I am a writer, and I write.

 

An excerpt from that chapter:

“It is in the dawn or the dusk, it is in the stars or the clouds that dance in the sky, it is in the hand we hold or in the moments alone, it is in our hearts and our souls. Happiness is a breath, or a kiss, a hug from a friend, it is in a memory or a moment when a new smile is shared. Happiness is colors and cookies, rain and rivers, it’s a feeling we get when a touch makes us quiver… Happiness is a way of thinking.”

 

When I am not writing I am fortunate to have found a way to continue to share happiness. I was led by the Universe to the desk of a wonderful kind soul, she introduced me to Nerium, and to the people that she worked with in her business, who in turn welcomed me and shared their energy and their smiles. I chose to pursue this adventure, and went about it with both eyes open, I needed to learn about it, use it, feel it and then believe in it. Six months have passed and I believe, I look and feel fantastic, I have met and shared with some wonderful people, who are carrying the smiles forward and I have been recognized for my achievements, not just by my peers but by the company, which to me, means the world.

 

I have also recognized that the founder of the company Jeff Olsen, is also a writer and an Author, he wrote a book called the Slight Edge, I have read this book three times and each time I do I smile. He writes of a way of thinking that will lead people to the happiness and success they desire, is it a coincidence that I write about inspiring people to find their inner smile which in turn will lead them to happiness. I want to meet Jeff Olsen one day and shake his hand, because I feel his energy by reading his words, yes, writers write, and then they share what they write with the world, for some the best recognition they will receive are the smiles they see on the faces of those that read what they have written.

 

Thank you to all the people that now share their smiles with me, I appreciate the recognition.

Seeing is a part of believing. . .

. . . and believing can help you to see.

I never would have believed had I not have seen with my own eyes the support from somewhere I have never been. Thousands of likes with each new post from so many wonderful people, most of which are in the Philippines, and most of which make my smile even bigger.

 

With each new post I move forward, it gives me a chance to share with the world where I am in my adventure, and as a writer, I need to believe in what I write, I need to know someone, somewhere will read it and smile, so believe me, when I see so much support from so many people I find new light and new hope for not just myself, but for other aspiring authors and writers. This has to be more than a dream, you need to take that step to make it a reality, commit to yourself, “see” yourself succeed at whatever it is you are doing, share your progress, your adventure with the world and know that out there somewhere there are others just like you, waiting for that little spark of inspiration.

 

As I write this, the effects of a recent visit with my Editor Rachel Small, has filled me with new found excitement and enthusiasm, her energy and her passion for what she does, along with her ability to polish my word hugs and make them just that much warmer, has given me that little bit of extra inspiration. I have increased my drive now to find a sponsor or an investor to help with my task of printing and releasing Series Two of BawB’s Raven Feathers to the world.

 

Now, I have mentioned in many of my posts that if you believe in the Universe, the universe listens, and the Universe will help guide you on your path. Well, the Universe has shown me Nerium, and I made the choice to follow this path, one way or another I will get my little books published, and if I can do it on my own by sharing something that makes others happier about themselves, then all the better. That’s a Win/Win solution I will enjoy.

 

Right along with this new path I was shown, was the gift of support from the Philippines, and as I mentioned, in the numbers I would never have believed, so I am not one to walk away from a gift the Universe has presented, I would love to meet each and every one of you and share my smile and my appreciation, however the next best thing I can do is to point you in the direction I was shown, to show you your own path of success. At this time Nerium is not yet in the Philippines, but I believe the Universe knows it should be, and until it arrives you can send your family and friends that live in the US, or Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Canada or very soon Australia and Columbia to me, they can start their own little global business and then help you to succeed in yours when the time comes.

 

Please accept these words as my genuine words of thanks for your belief in me, and for your support in my little books Bawb’s Raven Feathers and my Nerium business. Please contact us and let us know you are out there and that you too believe in the Universe.

And for my new Filipino friends…

Nakakakita ay isang bahagi ng paniniwalang. . .

. . . at paniniwalang maaaring makatulong sa iyo na makita.

 

Hindi ko kailanman sana ay naniwala ay hindi ko na nakita ng aking mga mata ang suporta mula sa isang lugar hindi ko pa. Libo-libong ng mga gusto sa bawat bagong post mula sa gayon maraming magagandang mga tao, karamihan sa mga ito ay sa Pilipinas, at karamihan sa mga ito gumawa ng aking ngiti kahit na mas malaki.

 

Sa bawat bagong post ilipat ko inaabangan ang panahon, ito ay nagbibigay sa akin ng isang pagkakataon upang ibahagi sa mundo kung nasaan ako sa aking pakikipagsapalaran, at bilang isang manunulat, kailangan ko na maniwala sa kung ano ang isulat ko, kailangan kong malaman ang isang tao, sa isang lugar ay basahin ito at ngiti, kaya naniniwala ako, kapag nakita ko kaya magkano ang suporta mula sa mga kaya maraming mga tao na mahanap ako ng mga bagong liwanag at bagong pag-asa para sa hindi lamang sa aking sarili, ngunit para sa iba pang mga minimithi may-akda at manunulat. Ito ay upang maging higit sa isang panaginip, na kailangan mong gawin ang hakbang na iyon upang gawin itong isang katotohanan, ipasok sa iyong sarili, “tingnan ang” ang iyong sarili magtagumpay sa anumang ito ay ang iyong ginagawa, ibahagi ang iyong pag-unlad, ang iyong pakikipagsapalaran sa mundo at malaman na out doon sa isang lugar na may mga iba tulad ng sa iyo, naghihintay para sa maliit na spark ng inspirasyon.

 

Bilang isulat ko ito, ang mga epekto ng isang kamakailang pagbisita sa aking Editor Rachel Maliit, pinuspos ako ng bagong natagpuan kaguluhan at sigasig, ang kanyang enerhiya at ang kanyang mga simbuyo ng damdamin para sa kung ano ang ginagawa niya, kasama ang kanyang kakayahan upang polish ang aking salita hugs at gawin silang lamang na mas mainit, ay nagbigay sa akin na maliit na piraso ng dagdag na inspirasyon. Ako ay nadagdagan ang aking drive ngayon upang mahanap ang isang sponsor o isang mamumuhunan upang makatulong sa aking mga gawain ng pag-print at ilalabas Series Dalawa ni BawB Raven Feathers sa mundo.

 

Ngayon, ako ay may nabanggit sa marami sa aking mga post na kung naniniwala ka sa Uniberso, ang uniberso ay nakikinig, at ang Universe ay makatulong na gabayan ka sa iyong landas. Well, ang Universe ay ipinapakita sa akin Nerium, at ginawa ko ang mga pagpipilian upang sundin ang landas, isang paraan o iba ang makukuha ko ang aking maliit na libro-publish, at kung maaari kong gawin ito sa aking sarili sa pamamagitan ng pagbabahagi ng isang bagay na gumagawa ng iba happier tungkol sa kanilang sarili, pagkatapos ang lahat ng mas mahusay. Iyan ay isang Win / Win solusyon ay ay masiyahan.

 

Right kasama ang mga ito bagong landas ako ay ipinapakita, ay ang kaloob ng suporta mula sa Pilipinas, at tulad ng nabanggit ko, sa numero hindi ko nais na naniniwala, kaya hindi ako isa para lakarin ang layo mula sa isang regalo ang Universe ay iniharap, ako Gusto pag-ibig upang matugunan ang bawat at bawat isa sa inyo at ibahagi ang aking ngiti at ang aking pagpapahalaga, subalit ang susunod na pinakamahusay na bagay na maaari kong gawin ay upang ituro sa iyo sa direksyon ako ay ipinakita, upang ipakita sa iyo ang iyong sariling landas ng tagumpay. Sa oras na ito Nerium ay hindi pa sa Pilipinas, pero naniniwala ako sa Universe alam ito ay dapat na, at hanggang sa dumating ito maaari mong ipadala ang iyong pamilya at mga kaibigan na naninirahan sa US, o Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Canada o sa lalong madaling panahon Australia at Columbia sa akin, maaari nilang simulan ang kanilang sariling maliit na global na negosyo at pagkatapos ay makakatulong sa iyo upang magtagumpay sa iyo kapag ang oras ay dumating.

 

Mangyaring tanggapin ang mga salitang ito bilang aking tunay na mga salita ng salamat para sa iyong paniniwala sa akin, at para sa iyong suporta sa aking maliit na libro ni Bawb Raven Balahibo at ang aking Nerium negosyo. Mangyaring makipag-ugnay sa amin at ipaalam sa amin kung ikaw ay out doon at na masyado kang naniniwala sa Universe.

If you focus on where you want to be tomorrow. . .

. . .where you are today soon becomes where you were yesterday.

 

So here it is August 16th and I find myself focused on where I want to be tomorrow, I am scrambling to find funding or an investor so I can get Series two of my little books published and out to the world for a December launch, they are in the final stages of editing with Rachel Small, then off to design with Fiona Raven, then Friesens for printing, sounds easy, well it will take some serious manifesting but I am confident I will find a way (I have an open line to the Universe).

 

A moment passes. . .

 

It only takes a moment to realize there are always options to every design, and by design the opportunity I was offered to share an amazing line of anti-aging/wrinkle fighting products for Mind AND Body with Nerium international is starting to take shape as my plan “B”. If I keep with the system, keep sharing what I believe in and people keep realizing that the system (and the product) works, I won’t need an investor or funding, I will cover the costs myself.

 

I have mentioned recently how the little things can grow into the biggest things of your life, and I speak from experience as recently I have been seen and liked by thousands of Filipino supporters, men and women that have acknowledged I am alive by hitting a “like” button, to me, that is the most amazing thing ever. I know that each one of them has the potential to talk to a friend, who in turn will talk to a friend, which, again by design is how the system works. Nerium doesn’t use advertising, they use word of mouth, testimonials and lots of before and after pictures of incredibly satisfied people, so imagine as I have, the rate at which the word about Nerium is expanding as we speak, among the people I have reached out to and shared what I believe in.

Imagine also, as I have, that such a successful company in only five years has grown to achieve incredible numbers in sales, and a reputation as one of the fastest growing companies EVER, so why wouldn’t I share this, why wouldn’t I want everyone to be as happy as I am and why wouldn’t everyone want to look and see for themselves what Nerium can do for them, both as a product and a small business. Talk to us about looking and feeling younger inside and out.

One of the things I have learned on this adventure is that we as humans are skeptical, of everything that seems too good to be true, well my friends this is one of those things that is that good, and it is true, all it takes from you is belief in yourself that you can make it happen and belief in a system that has been proven over and over again how well it works, and if that’s not enough, because Nerium is expanding you have the opportunity to decide where you want run your new business, because Nerium is INTERNATIONAL.

To all my Mates down under, Nerium is Fair Dinkum you may want to give it a burl, its coming your way soon.

http://www.everydayyouth.net/become-australia-nerium-brand-partner/ let Tracy know you saw this on BawB’s blog page.

So here I am, a happy, retired, published author of award winning books filled with inspirational poetry and positive energy, reaching out to the world and inspiring all to believe in your dreams and ask yourself WHY do you want to be happy? Now ask yourself WHY NOT take a step forward?.

Thoughts are things that you make happen by wanting them to be

If you believe in having happy thoughts then think of them, you’ll see.

You can’t build a future. . .

. . . by just thinking about it.

 

You have to actually do a little bit of work, and I’m not saying back breaking labor, but some work that involves planning and research (looking into your dreams and goals) then a little bit of architecture (mapping and blueprinting the framework) then finally the use of the tools (the time spent and the effort given), just a small amount of “work” will make your future that much brighter.

 

Now having said this, I am finding that most of society would rather do less work to produce larger gains, less effort for more return, and in a perfect world this would be wonderful, however, we live in a world where we get back what we put in. So why then when we are offered a chance to create our own happiness which in turn will generate successes, do we turn our backs and deny ourselves the chance to live our dream?

 

Recently I was given the opportunity to choose to create an adventure with a highly regarded, history making, billion dollar, anti-wrinkle age fighting, feel good about yourself, be happy company, and I could have very easily turned my back, because it sounded too good to be true, but this time I was ready to do a little bit of work on my own terms, this time I made the right choice, I have created my own perfect world, and surprisingly all it took was some research, some listening ( to the many others that have made the same choice before me) some belief in myself and my ability, and some sharing, that’s right, I said sharing.

 

So there you have it, the “secret” to success isn’t a secret at all, no magic involved, no maps to a treasure, the secret is just to make the choice to walk through a door of opportunity when it is presented, I mean, if the door is right there in front of you, open, shouldn’t you at the very least poke your head in and have a look around? What if you find that through that door is the happiness you have been seeking, what if you find that happiness happens first and THEN you become successful.

 

So now, having read all this, I am going to share with you the path to a door through which the opportunity for your happiness awaits, but this isn’t a small door, this is the door to a continent, a part of the planet that until now has been untouched by this kind of opportunity, oh, I know what you’re thinking, this all sounds too good to be true, well it is this good and it is true, Nerium is opening their doors in Australia soon and each and every one of you can make your dreams come true… all you have to do is believe you can be happy.

 

Here is the door, not just one door but three, you can choose your own door, at random, or use the energy of the universe, just pick one and poke your head in and have a look around, if you are curious ask us, we would love to share what we know and point you to your own new path of adventure.

Don’t base your dreams on what yesterday brought. . .

 

. . .create them with what tomorrow will bring.

 

I listened to a person last night, a person just like you and me, he is part of the Nerium family and his name is Mark Michaud, he spoke about dream building and goals, and he spoke about believing in yourself. This really hit home for me because I have already lived one of my dreams, so I speak from experience when I say dreams can happen, but when I listen to others that are living and sharing their dreams it makes my heart happy.

 

My dream was to write one book, to fill it with inspiration and energy, to have the reader open it, read it, feel it and become inspired in themselves, to understand the power of a smile and to create achievable goals. I lived that dream, I wrote that book, and I went on to write 4 more. I am still creating these little books with another 5 books in the works, my dream is not yet done as I will continue to write and share my energy long after I’m gone, those that can feel the wind will share my smiles.

 

Now, I am meeting other people with dreams, they don’t just have dreams, they create their dreams and they are living them, everywhere I go now I am meeting these people and they are sharing their dreams, they are smiling, they are happy and all they are doing is sharing what they believe in. They are not writers they are believers, they are not sales people they are sharing people, to some of them it is not about the money or the potential earnings it is about the dreams and the Why.

 

It donned on me last night while I was listening to Mark, that one of my dreams was to share with the universe the energy and the desire to believe in yourself, now I am feeling that everyone who has read my little books has helped me to live my dream, so it is my turn to give back to the world with an opportunity to create yours.

 

I am now part of the Nerium family, a group of amazing people around the world that dream, that share, and that believe in a product that will make you look and feel amazing. Every one of these people had the same choice you do, to create a dream and live it, or not. Every time I hear one of these people speak I think of how amazing it could be if everyone could live one dream, well, this is a chance to do just that. I have reached out to my friends, because they are my friends, I have shared with them and given them the choice, now I am sharing with the world, and giving everyone that same choice and the same opportunity exists to live your dream.

 

I am a writer, (so my editor tells me) so I can write what I’m thinking and share it with you, okay, so here’s what I’m thinking;

 

Below there are two links, pick either one randomly and have a look at what’s inside, look at the before and after pictures, look at the research behind these products, look at the choices you have, then go and look at yourself in the mirror. You will see you, can you imagine what you would look like if you tried these products, then, can you image what your life would be like if you could live a dream you created.

 

That’s it, it’s that easy, no sales, no pressure, no stress, just you, your choices and a link to an adventure that you can create. Your life is all up to you, your happiness will always show in your smile, then its your smile that shows in your successes.

Oh, and one more thing, I have another dream, one day my little books will become part of the Nerium inspiration, because I believe they will help you believe in what you can do.

A new adventure. . .

 

. . . always begins with the first step.

 

So here I am, sitting high up on the edge of success overlooking a scene of what my life will become, I am taking the first step to my new adventure. I realized a short while ago that I was there, that place which becomes familiar to artists and authors, people of all sizes and types and backgrounds with all sorts of talents. That place where dreams are so close to becoming reality that you can feel it, then reality hits and you realize that you are two nickels short of a dime to make it happen.

 

The starving artist, yes I was there, too proud to ask, too tall to dance, can’t sing to save my life, but, I can write… so… here is my story;

 

Several months ago I was having coffee with a very lovely young woman I work with, I can’t recall how we got on the subject but she mentioned Nerium and the life changing anti-aging products they share (I am old school and dared not ask the age of a woman) but, not one to miss an opportunity I asked “do they have something that can help with this?” as I pointed to my finely aged well weathered etched with character gypsy face, “ Yes” she said, “Yes they do, try this for 7 days and see what you think” and she handed me a bottle of Night Cream.

 

Since that day I have been to several Brand parties, multiple Market parties and met some of the most wonderful, supportive and might I add successful people ever, and as each of them will attest in a heartbeat, “Nerium found me”.

 

From this point I can say I have tried the products, I had to before I went any further, after all, I am an award winning author of Inspirational books, I need to believe in something before I can be inspired and I believe in Nerium. Not only does this well-worn and wind weathered old face now have a younger, toned (still full of character) look to it but my brain even feels younger (and I’m sleeping better) thanks to the EHT (the age-defying brain supplement).

 

So, there you have it, I am out of the closet now, my pride that has kept me from admitting I needed help, now has me being proud of both my books and a company that has given me the chance to help myself by sharing what they offer with others. Those of you that know me, know I am not a salesman, my little books sell themselves, those of you that don’t know me, well, now you know I am not a salesman, but what I believe in is something I can share with those of you that aren’t sales people or maybe you are… I can share success.

 

Do your research, if I could reach through the screen and hand you these products to try I would, but until that becomes possible take the word “the written word” of an Author on a new adventure and look at Nerium, I believe they will help me get Series two of BawB’s Raven Feathers printed and on the shelves, and I believe they will help you achieve your dreams as well.

I you have any questions, any dreams, any place you would like to be other than where you are, contact me and I will share with you this path of a new adventure.
