Tending Your Garden Or Business in Miscellaneous

about 1 month ago

Thank you all who have added your thoughts to my post. I truly appreciate everyone's input, concepts and inspirations. I make it a point to search a new topic every day and strive to learn something new daily. I grew up on a farm where we raised all of our vegetables, etc., have a science degree and taught science, and also then owned our own family tax business when I had to medically retire from teaching seeing the correlation between them is easy for me.
Just hope it inspires others to see the necessity of tending their business as if it were a beautiful garden.

So true and well said, Seth. I think of all the great inventors of the past and how many failures they experienced before inventing successful products. Believe me, I know Mr. Gery has experienced his own share since he first started this business over 18 yrs ago.

Tending Your Garden Or Business

HOW SEEDS AND PLANTS GROW – HOW PERSONAL BUSINESSES GROW

Learn the process it takes a plant to grow from a seed.

Learn the process it takes to build a business from one tiny seed (idea or concept).

The plant seed must be placed in fertile ground to develop, root, grow and form a sturdy foundation with a strong trunk..

The business seed (concept) must be placed within a workable plan to build a solid foundation with room to grow.

The plant seed does not grow instantly. It must have time to germinate, make its own food and steadily grow stronger and become productive.

The business seed does not grow instantly either. It requires a sculpting time where the builder learns, develops a workable plan.

A plant requires certain conditions to grow. It continually needs food, water, sunlight, soil care and weeding as necessary to grow and maintain strength.

So also, a business requires certain conditions to grow. It requires complete understanding of how it works and daily actions to maintain its growth and substance.

Once the plant reaches maturity it will produce fruits or new seed for new growth.

Once the business reaches levels of growth it will begin to produce fruits of the labor.

These may come in small amounts at first, but dedicated care will help them grow and continue.

Plants need to be protected from diseases, insects and other damaging factors.

A business must also be protected from invading negative thoughts and lack of nurturing.

Thus, when plants are not cared for properly and continually, they turn color, defoliate and die.

So too, without enough care and nourishment a business turn colors dries up and dies.

My friends what will your actions be?


My best to you always

May God bless

Anyone still pay some of your bills by mail? in Team Building #Marketing #Team Building #TripleClicks

about 1 month ago

Thomas, I do the same thing. I do not know how many connections I have made through this method but all it is costing me is the price of the cards I enclose. The few bills I pay through the mail also helps bring connections to our business. I put one of the SFI cards and one of the Rewardicals in each mailing.

Getting Out Of A Rut in Inspiration/Testimonials

2 months ago

10 2 18 Get Out Of Your Rut




Are we in a rut in life?




If we have allowed indecision, doubt, fear and yes, laziness to invade our life;




Our lives are not progressing forward, but simply spinning in the mud rut of life.




The rut becomes deep and deeper.




The first question we must answer is;




Are we ready to take charge; to face our demons?




Do we feel we are qualified to take charge; to make changes?







Second question:




Are we ready to work?




Expecting something for nothing is a crippling chain.




It is important to understand hard work is necessary to make changes.




No hard work means no forward movement.




It means spinning in place and digging that rut deeper and deeper.




Everything becomes stagnant and begins to decay.







Do we even know what do we really want?




Do we want to wallow in the mud rut or ride along on a solid path?




It is like putting heavy chains around the tires of our vehicle.




They encumber our journey to the solid path without ruts.







These chains include doubt and indecision.




We all have the strength and means to change our path.




But! Are we willing to face the fears of failure?




We must remember every fear faced and overcome makes us smarter, stronger and more adapt.




We must find the key to unlock the chains we have allowed to bind us.







Psychotherapist Christine Gutierrez and Founder of the women’s lifestyle company, CosmicLife.com says. “Inside of you, you have a strong internal wisdom.”







Let us search for it!




Find it!




And!




Use it!







A personal trainer and Director of Camp Gladiator, Jonathan Pylant, once shared this advice he himself received from a mentor long ago.




“In areas of giftedness, work on your strength.




In areas of character, work on your weaknesses.”







This helps to avoid getting in a rut.




It helps us to continue to grow as a person and as a professional.







Learn to shift our focus to work on areas of strength




Don’t allow ourselves to become bogged down in that rut of fear.




We need to continue work on ourselves as long as we are mentally capable.




This will keep our wheels unchained and moving on solid ground;







Not Spinning in the mud; but setting goals and conquering them.







Work on getting out of the rut.







Take the advice of Lee Runchey, Vice President of Chrome PR, “You get what you get ready for.”







We must prepare: read, study, learn, apply!







Make a plan, set goals and act!







We must build a solid foundation.







Get out of the mud rut and stay on that solid foundation!







Find the key to open the chains.




Open the chains then throw them and the key away!







“I've lived an amazing life.




There's no reason to focus on the bad.




They teach you that in racing school.




Keep your eye where you want your front tire to be.




You don't want to be stuck in the rut?




Then don't look at the rut.




Always look at where you want to go.”




Francesco Quinn






Have a great week my friends




My best to you

Well, Stephen, thank you for doing the search.
I just learned something new today.
That is a new one on me. I had never heard of a mola fish or mole fish.
Now we have all learned something new.
Still think that is a rather odd question to put in trivia.
And we had a chuckle for a while.

So glad you all enjoyed my sense of humor.

Need a Chuckle For The Day? in Miscellaneous

Need a chuckle for the day?
I just have to share this.

I was just knocked out of a game.
The question was what animal is a mole?
Choices I believe were bird, mammal, fish and reptile.

Since I have these little rascals burrowing all over my yard and garden, I quickly answered mammal.
By the way, The dog has killed the adults and babies so I do know what they look like; as well as being a former science teacher.
The message read!
OH NO! You were knocked out in the final round!

The correct answer was:
Fish
Knockout Trivia Match #204018 was won by kacmarikova77.
However, you did great:

I do think someone needs to go in a check this one out

Kow What You Want And Get It!!! in Team Building #Team Building

Once again Bruce you have nailed it.
The greatest problem though still facing us is how do you get those who really need to read this to read it.
I was thinking as I read it about what kind of intriguing caption could I use to try to get those who are still on the fence or under the fence to step up, wise up, open up and not remain heedless to the wonderful opportunities available here.
Thank you and please keep up the great post.

Well said and to the point. You are exactly right. The first thing must be a decision. Once that is done you must show dedication and have a planned direction. Set your goals, reevaluate them as necessary a restructure as necessary.
