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.

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 

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.

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.
