Make your resolution. . .

…then ask yourself WHY?

The single most important thing that I choose to reflect on right now, is that you don’t have to wait for any particular day of any particular year to create a resolution, (that you probably won’t keep anyway) nor do you have to wait for something to go wrong to make changes.


I started a new little business a year ago, and it’s no coincidence that it feels like I have waited a year to “see” if it was going to work, well, it is working, but, could it be better, absolutely, did I wait too long before I decided to make some changes, again, ABSOLUTELY.


Do you find yourself waiting, if so for what? Do you have your own little business, and do you treat it like a business, if you had to wake up every morning and drive to a location, turn a key to open a door, lift the blinds and wait for people to walk in… would THAT feel more like a business?


Here’s the thing, and YES there’s a thing, I chose to run my little business, and in 2 days I am going to throw open the big double doors and start treating it like a store, my store, every now and then you will see a sign in my window letting you know what I do, If you walk into my store I will treat you like royalty, because you are a customer, because you are helping my store survive, if you tell your friends about my store I will remember you and make you feel important, if you like the products in my store I hope you tell me so I can share your success with others.


I will also say hello to other store owners, because they throw open their doors and greet the world with a smile every day, I get it now, you didn’t come to FB to buy things, you came here to be entertained, to live the drama, to hear the rumors, but, while you are here NOT buying things, smile at us, we are the store owners that run our little businesses so you have somewhere to go if you need anything. I guess we are the convenience stores open for you 24/7 so you have somewhere to stop as you drive to your brick and mortor jobs and make money for someone else so they can stay home and not shop on FB.


Believe in you my friends, use what you know to create the questions that help you to find the answers to what you don’t know. Don’t be afraid to make those changes to your life, don’t wait for the right time, or the right day, and for goodness sake don’t wait for a single day out of 365 to invent a resolution you probably have NO intention keeping…


Be happy being you every day, if you need a change then find the way, if negative happens don’t let it stay, and remember…work is work, you need time to play.

If failing isn’t an option…

…then is success a fair goal.


I read that title a couple of times and it started to make more sense, what I meant by that statement was this; If you are going to take on a new challenge, and there was no chance to fail, then what would you learn, would the challenge have the same meaning. I practice every day to see the positive in all things, I have often said that fail is;

“F ound A nother I mportant L esson”

So I am OK with failing an attempt at something, if the attempt means you learned how to do it better next time. If you learned that it doesn’t mean you are any less of a person because you tried and did not succeed the first time, and especially if it means you look forward to trying again because it means something different now.


I absolutely love the thought of challenges, not just the ones that others offer, say, at work or in the gym, but the challenges you set up for yourself. Personally, I create challenges for myself every day, and at this point I think it might be the right time to admit I am not competitive, but like everyone else, I find beating the man I was yesterday feels pretty good, like when I go for my walk, yesterday I did 5k steps, today I shoot for 5010, yeah, I know, what’s 10 extra steps? Well to me its further than I went yesterday, and it’s not about the distance, its more about the determination.


Keep in mind as well, that challenges are not just physical, they are also emotional and spiritual, there are days when I wake up and I feel “tired” on a spiritual level, so I challenge myself to breathe, find my light and move forward. Emotionally I can lose myself occasionally, and it’s up to me to find myself, to remember who I am and why I am, and then challenge myself to be a better me.


It comes as no surprize then that I find such a wonderful fit for myself as an Author and now as a Social Marketer with an amazing company, you can probably imagine the challenges I set for myself on a day to day basis. I try to find a customer a day, someone willing to accept how easy it is to live with day to day products that are free of harsh chemicals and toxins, and then I try to find someone each week that may be interested in creating a business for themselves, something that can give them their time back and financial freedom. For me this business is creating the funds I need to publish my books, that is my WHY, that’s what drives me to challenge myself every day.


And yes, most certainly I fail, in fact I welcome failure in this industry because it helps me to grow, believe it or not, failure in the social marketing world means you face your fears, if you are afraid of talking to people, then you challenge yourself to reach out to one person a day, and you build from there. If you are afraid to BE out there, then you challenge yourself to start creating who you are, make your posts about you, about what you like, about what you do, then, working your way up to live videos to show the world that you are real… yes, it’s a huge challenge, and yes you might fail at first, but, you will also learn who you are, and most importantly, you will learn to believe in yourself.


Believe in you and see what happens, you will recognize the person you are meant to BE.

You want to try being successful…


. . .first become successful at being.


I am having so much fun on this adventure, experiencing the ups and downs of direct sales and social marketing, I share what I’m doing with as many people as I can, then hope they make a choice towards a clean, chemical free lifestyle, I don’t just love to share these products I love the products I’m sharing.


It’s kind of similar to writing I suppose, a writer does something they enjoy doing so very much and then they hope that what they wrote becomes as enjoyable reading it as writing it. In the marketing business those of us that are brand new to the industry are mentored, groomed, and led, by leaders that have experienced the ups and downs, the highs and lows, and have become successful by working towards it and by simply being themselves and sharing what they are passionate about. I have a feeling this way of life has been around since the cavemen created the first wheel then sold their wheel to others, ok, so I love the comic strip titled B.C. by Mastroianni and Hart, it is one of my favourites, but the point is, there are always things that are out there that someone needs or wants and it takes someone else to share them.


That takes me to the part about being successful, this is a part of the adventure that is all up to the individual, success cannot be bought, I believe it must be earned, and it should be appreciated because you have earned it. The definition of success will vary with each that seeks it, for some it is simple, as in passing a test or meeting a challenge or goal, for others it becomes more involved, by striving to be the best you can be at whatever you are doing.


In this industry success involves work, it means getting out of bed EVERY morning believing in you, believing that you can do this, believing that you are strong enough, proud enough and willing enough to accept all the challenges, appreciate the ups and learn from the downs, it involves believing in the products you share, whatever they are, from widgets and whatnots to household and wellness products, you need to use them, enjoy them and present them with a passion, the people you are sharing with need to believe in you before they will look at what you are sharing.


So, my friends and faithful readers, let me thank you for helping me enjoy what I love doing by reading what I have written, and for those of you that are just starting out on a new adventure, any adventure, believe in you and success will follow. Carve out that perfect wheel for you and roll with it.


If you wake each morning with your biggest smile and say that you believe

Then success will greet you where you are and good things you will receive.

If you don’t look where you’re going. . .

You will never know where you’ve been.


So much has happened in the last little while, and I know that sounds cliché but, unless we take a moment and reflect once in a while, we never really understand the “movement”. It seems like forever since I have sat down and transferred thought to paper, and to most it is a task that seldom makes back burner status, but to a writer, it is a “glitch”, a feeling that something is missing, almost an emptiness caused by a disconnection to the world, or in my case, I feel like I have not chatted with the Universe to let it know I am well, and to thank it for guiding my thoughts and sharing with me the energy of life.


Where do I start? Even that in itself is a question I have been asked lately, “where is your mindset when you sit down to write” and “how do you know what to say”. I will address those two things first; My mindset when I sit down to write is open, open to all that is positive and peaceful in the Universe, I feel balance, and I try not to focus on any one thing, rather, I wait to feel what comes to my mind first, then I roll my thoughts into words, the finished product is usually something inspirational and motivating, and with a little tweaking is perfect to share with the world. Second; I never “know” what to say, in fact, what happens is I “feel” what needs to be said. I guess an easy way to explain that is; if I see a picture of a flower, I feel the beauty of the flower, I feel the sunshine, the breeze, the dew left behind by the dawn, I feel the energy the flower shares with all who take the time to smell it… I “feel” what the flower feels and put it into words.


Now, on to my update, I have met SO many wonderful people recently, people that share the energy in the company I am with, people that are grateful to live clean healthy lifestyles, to have actually found youth and vitality just by trying something new and wonderful. But, its not all about the company, it’s about these people, sure they are all running their business, but they took the time to get to know me, who I am, what I do, they read my books, they follow my FB page, some have even shared smiles that found my heart and brought new light to my life.


These “things” that happen in our life, happen because we believe, because we ask the Universe for positive change, well, let me tell you, my world is FILLED with positive change, my business is growing, my books (Series II of BawB’s Raven Feathers) have been proofed and will be off to design shortly, but best of all, I have become re-acquainted with a man I have not seen in a while, I was introduced by a wonderful friend to Robert Chomany, the man responsible for the books, for the smiles, for the inspiration, the man my Mom, Bless her heart, raised me to be.


It seems somehow I grew comfortable hiding behind a book title, a name, an image, I was so comfortable being invisible that I forgot about how incredibly rewarding it is to be seen. I am Robert Chomany, I am proud, and I am Inspired to share with the Universe this person I am happy to BE.


When you feel the wind, then spread your wings, its time for you to soar,

There is a time for you to see yourself, how beautiful you are and even more..


It’s not always what you think you see. . .


. . .sometimes it’s just meant to be.


I have been growing in the last three months, growing and learning and listening, and most importantly I have been watching others become successful, doing exactly the same thing, it inspires me to watch them and learn, it creates a positive path for me to walk on, with an obtainable goal, and without a “finish line” it makes this journey more fun, it turns it into and adventure.


But let’s take a minute and figure out how I got here, or more importantly how we ALL get here. It starts when we’re 5, we are led to school by our parents or guardians, and we are told to listen to some total strangers tell us what to do, when to do it and how to do it. We are told how to dress, how to behave, how to read and write, how to create formulas using the Pythagorean theory, then after twelve long agonizing years we are released, only to discover yet another path where we can once again become students but on a much higher level. Another four or five years pass and we are finally free, to become ourselves, to use this knowledge we have gained and create a life for ourselves… by working for someone else. By becoming someone else’s profit maker, being told what to do, and when to do it, being given impossible timelines and being told when we can eat, when we can have coffee, when to arrive, when to leave, what to wear and how to behave. Huh, sounds like one of those full circles we hear so much about but never believe could happen to us.


Then comes the dream, you focus that part of your brain that remains yours, the part that wasn’t changed or altered by society, the part that still dreams, and you use it… to dream of winning the lottery… that’s right, you have succumbed to what you believe to be your escape, your deliverance from societies evil oppressive ways. You fixate on something that may or may not happen, I won’t say it can’t, it could happen, but, could it happen too late, what if it happens on your eighty second birthday, are you going to be able to jump for joy?


So, now, fast forward back to today, back to my adventure, something I have never done before, something most of us have never done before…work for no-one else… I work for myself, I dress how I choose, come and go as I please, I can get sick without feeling guilty, and best of all, the money I make, goes in MY pocket, for my trips, my cars, my pets my purpose. Yeah, I know, you’ve read this far, and now you think I either won the elusive lottery or I’m selling something, well, no to both. What I have done is taken the opportunity that was presented to me, I jumped off of societies doomed ship to nowhere, and I landed on my own ship, one that I steer, a fine sturdy ship with tall sails that catch the wind, I have found my adventure.


It’s totally not what I thought it was, and I am making it become what I need it to be, it is my own small business, it is my contribution to the world, it is showing people how to make their own choices, you don’t have to buy and use something because the TV and multimillion dollar ads tell you to, you can choose to live your own way, shop where you want and buy what you like. Break free of societies grip, of the brain washing, of the titles and negative energy put on small businesses. Support your friends, support your neighbours, and oh yeah, support YOURSELF, ask yourself why you are continuing to put money in your boss’s pocket, or in the bank of a multi-billion-dollar chain store.


Find something that interests you and DO IT, I’m not saying drop everything and go, I’m saying take a chance to become a part time social marketer, or a customer, spread the word for your friend’s small business and feel good about yourself, feel good because you have helped someone create a life for themselves, then consider your own life, and yes my friends, you can do this… I did.

This is my small business, Modere, they offer clean, chemical free products, things you use every day, plus home care and personal wellness Liquid Collagen products, here is where you can shop if you choose to;

And this is your opportunity to give your own small business a try, go ahead what could it hurt to look;

Choose to live your own life, it is yours after all… WI:)ND 

A person is better to accept a challenge only once. . .

. . .if the challenge accepted is one to make you better.


I believe challenges should be a part of a positive lifestyle, and the most beneficial are those that we create for ourselves by ourselves. From an athletic standpoint where you challenge yourself to walk a little further each week, to cerebral, where you challenge yourself to do a new crossword every week, to of course, your overall well-being, where you challenge yourself to start living clean.


Challenges from others can also be invigorating, and we experience them from our very early years, some as bets and dares, to our lives as elders and seniors where we are challenged to a game of chess or checkers, (do people still play checkers?) I challenge myself every morning when I wake up to create and share a smile on my social networking page, and the challenge is not so much to write the inspiration, but to continue to enjoy writing it, and some mornings it is more challenging than others. (yes I have some off days too)

I’m sure we are all faced with our challenges, and some more than others, but what makes a challenge productive is if the challenge can make you a better person, is what you have been challenged to do, going to show you that you can be better or do better at a task, or is it strictly for machismo or ego. The macho thing, many years ago, used to impress the ladies, now, guys, I think the ladies you used to want to impress could probably give you a run for your money so its best to focus on you instead.

Recently I created a challenge for myself, and that was to complete series two of my books, I chose to accept that challenge because doing so would make me a better person, a better writer, and better at marketing strategies, as well as open the door to a new challenge of finishing my children’s book and my Biography (that others are challenging me to write)

I also accepted a new career path, I was challenged by change, to make the choice to change, and to accept that something new could in fact change my life. Turns out it wasn’t a challenge at all, in fact the change was a positive thing, and now, I am challenging you to accept that challenge of change, change where you shop for things, change what things you shop for, challenge yourself to start living a clean chemical free lifestyle.

I found the change to be rewarding for me, so I share the information with you, that’s how the world works these days, girls buy shoes, other girls like the shoes, they buy the shoes, I buy chemical free all natural toothpaste, I tell you about it, then you buy the tooth paste, it’s a beautiful thing. Go ahead, take the challenge to shop here;

or to change your life


As artists, we share what we do, writing, drawing, painting and creating, as individuals we share what we know, these individuals will share what they know in a heartbeat, they buy shoes, and they shop for the same toothpaste and their lives have changed;


If it’s clear to you that you want to change, that choice is yours to make

If a challenge then presents itself its one that you should take.

Change can be something you choose. . .

. . .because you were given the choice.


I love to hear about happiness, how it is attained, how important it is and how people come to believe that because of a change they made in their lives their happiness levels increased. Our lives revolve around how happy we are, so why then don’t we choose to make changes more often that can increase our levels of happy. Our clothes, our routes we take to work, when we eat dessert (if it’s that good why don’t we eat it first), our jobs, and I realize we all have bills to pay, but if you are going from a job that makes you miserable to a job that makes you happy, wouldn’t it be nicer to pay bills with a smile.

*note- I know the economy is a little shaky (author avoiding political opinions)  right now, and jobs are not as readily available out there, but there are ALWAYS options, be creative, if a door of opportunity hasn’t opened for you then build your own door.


I am writing this today because I have recently made a change, from one very successful company to another, I was given the choice, I alone had the final say and I did my research. The choice was made to shift my focus to something new and exciting, not just for me but for every one of you out there, and yes there are often risks involved when changes are made, but, if it is your happiness that is the outcome of the change, shouldn’t it be acceptable to welcome a bit of a risk.


I chose to write my little books, at the risk they may not be well received, the risk was there, but my happiness for doing something I believed in was more than worth it, now I sit putting all the pieces together to complete the series, and the change to my happiness levels are off the charts, so, sure, change can be overwhelming sometimes, but if at the end of the day you feel the need to make your life better, then make the choice to make the change.


My direction now lies with Modere, an amazing company that distributes Chemical free, all natural, affordable everyday items, I stand behind them because I believe in a Chemical free environment, and if this is something we can choose to do then I am happy I made the change.


Please feel free to click on the link and shop around, the promo code offered is for $10 dollars off your first purchase, and if you are buying these products anyway why not make the change to clean living.


And if you are in the market for a life change to increase the level of your happiness then click on my link to find out more about how to start your own little business sharing smiles.


or my friends would love to hear from you, because we all want to make the world a happier place,

Life is ours to change as we choose,

if the choice is happiness you cant lose.
