You've Changed
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
2021-10-12 In life, there is always this emotion that comes to us. It's the feeling like you have outgrown a place, a person, or certain behaviors. And this feeling doesn't mean you're better than anyone, but it does mean that you've changed. This feeling should never be ignored because it's telling us to pay attention to who we are becoming. The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Live Life in Full 
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 2021-9-2 7 Important Life Lessons Everyone Learns the Hard Way...Today marks the five-year anniversary of a close friend’s unexpected passing. This morning I caught myself reflecting on that dreary morning when I received the news, and how several colleagues and acquaintances whom I barely knew came up to me over the subsequent hours and gave me a pat on the back, a hug, or a genuine “I’m sorry.”In the midst of my sorrow I now realize this tragic loss taught me three important things. First, the worst things can happen to the best people for no obvious reason at all. Second, most people, even the ones you don’t think care, are genuinely good people who do care. And finally, just as it is difficult to see all the opportunities life gives you until you’re looking back, it is virtually impossible to fully understand certain life circumstances until they actually happen to you.It’s a variation of this final point that I want to explore further today – seven important life lessons almost everyone learns the hard way, eventually.1. The people you lose remain a part of you.Someday you will be faced with the reality of loss. And as life goes on, days rolling into nights, it will become clear that you never really stop missing someone special who’s gone, you just learn to live around the gaping hole of their absence.When you lose someone you can’t imagine living without, your heart breaks wide open, and the bad news is you never completely get over the loss. You will never forget them. However, in a backwards way, this is also the good news. They willlive on in the warmth of your broken heart that doesn’t fully heal back up, and you will continue to grow and experience life, even with your wound. It’s like badly breaking an ankle that never heals perfectly, and that still hurts when you dance, but you dance anyway with a slight limp, and this limp just adds to the depth of your performance and the authenticity of your character.2. The pursuit of happiness is about finding meaning.Pursuing happiness is not at all the same as being happy, which is a fleeting feeling dependent on momentary circumstances. If the sun is shining, by all means bask in it. Happy times are great and often fun-filled, but happy times pass, because time passes. This is something we rarely grasp at first.The lifelong pursuit of happiness, on the other hand, is more elusive; it’s not based on a particular outcome. What you are really pursuing is meaning – living a meaningful life. It starts with your “why.” (Why are you doing what you’re doing with your life?) When your “why” is meaningful, you are pursuing happiness. There will be times when things go so wrong that you barely feel alive. And there will also be times when you realize that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a lifeless existence for eighty years on someone else’s terms. The pursuit isn’t all or nothing; it’s all AND nothing, with ups and downs and worthwhile lessons along the way.In other words, happiness comes most easily when you know what you’re doing, believe in what you’re doing, and love what you’re doing (and who you’re doing it with), regardless of how things turn out. 3. Seeking validation from others invalidates YOU.Has the fear of rejection held you back? Have you ever been so fearful of what others might think or say about you that it kept you from taking positive action? I bet you’re shaking your head, “yes.”It’s time to change your mindset…Today, the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday. Prove yourself to yourself, not others. You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough. You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already valuable.If someone says “no” to you, or if someone says something negative about you, that doesn’t change anything about YOU. The words and opinions of others have no real bearing on your worth. Certainly it can be helpful and desirable to make a good impression in certain situations, yet it’s not the end of the world when you are faced with rejection.It’s great to receive positive feedback, but it simply doesn’t always happen. That’s OK though, because you know where you’re headed and you know your true worth does not depend on the judgment of others. When you set out to make a true difference in life, there will be those who disagree with you, those who ignore you, and those who flat out reject your ideas and efforts. Look beyond them, step confidently forward, do what must be done, and let them think what they will.4. Regret hurts far worse than fear.When we give in to our fears, we have a harder time looking at ourselves in the mirror. Sadly, very few of us escape learning this lesson firsthand. If you have already experienced this a time or two, you know what you need to do.It is only when we risk losing that we truly open the possibility to win. Whether it is quitting your job to build a business, running a marathon, or traveling to unknown parts of the world, any worthy endeavor requires risk, struggle and sacrifice. Some of these things may even terrify you, but ask yourself if these fears are stronger than the most powerful of fears, the fear of a wasted life?If you’ve never lost your mind, you’ve never followed your heart. It’s better to look back on life and say, “I can’t believe I did that,” than to look back and say, “I wish I did that.” Don’t let time pass you by like a hand waving from a train you desperately want to be on. Don’t spend the rest of your life thinking about why you didn’t do what you can do right now. Live your life. Take risks. Feel passion. Discover love. Run free. 5. Life is too unpredictable for rigid expectations.When you stop predicting and expecting things to be a certain way, you can appreciate them for what they are. Ultimately you will realize that life’s greatest gifts are rarely wrapped the way you expected.With a positive attitude and an open mind, you will find that life isn’t necessarily any easier or harder than you thought it was going to be; it’s just that “the easy” and “the hard” aren’t exactly the way you had anticipated, and don’t always occur when you expect them to. This isn’t a bad thing; it makes life interesting.Ninety-nine percent of the time life delivers the experiences that are most helpful for your personal growth. How do you know it’s the experience you need? Because it’s the experience you’re having. The only question is: Will you embrace it and grow, or fight it and fade?The key, of course, is to accept that not everything is meant to be. When things don’t turn out how you expected, you have to seriously sit down with yourself and come to grips with the fact that you were wrong about it all along. It was just an illusion that never really was what you thought it was. It’s one of the most difficult realizations to accept, to realize that you feel a sense of loss, even though you never really had what you thought you had in the first place.6. When you try to run away, you end up running in place.“Don’t think about eating that chocolate donut!” What are you thinking about now? Eating that chocolate donut, right? When you focus on not thinking about something, you end up thinking about it.The same philosophy holds true when it comes to freeing your mind from a negative past experience. By persistently trying to move away from what you didn’t like and don’t want, you are forced to think about it so much that you end up carrying it’s weight along with you. But if you instead choose to focus your energy on moving toward something you do like and do want, you naturally leave the negative weight behind as you progress forward.Bottom line: Running away from your problems is a race you’ll never win. Move TOWARDS something instead of AWAY. Rather than trying to eliminate the negative, focus on creating something positive that just happens to replace the negative. 7. Unanticipated hardships are inevitable and helpful.Nobody in this world is going to blindside you and hit you as hard as life will. Sometimes life will beat you to the ground and try to keep you there if you let it. But it’s not about how hard life can hit you, it’s about how hard you can be hit while continuing to move forward. That’s what strength is and that’s what winning the game of life is all about.When you have a lot to cry and complain about, but you prefer to smile and take a step forward instead, you are growing stronger. Work through your struggles and hardships. Even when it feels like things are falling apart, they’re not. Take control of your emotions before they take control of you. Everything will fall into place eventually. Until then, learn what you can, laugh often, live for the moments, and know that it’s all worthwhile in the end.AfterthoughtsGandhi once said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” I love this quote. There’s no doubt that every day is a gift, and the gift is an opportunity to live, to learn, and to grow.Be a student of life. Indulge in it and absorb all the knowledge you can, while you can. You may have to loose some things to gain some things, and you may have to learn some things the hard way. That’s OK. All experiences are necessary. The purpose of your life is to live it in full, to partake in it to the utmost, to reach out with an open mind and an honest heart for the newest and richest experience being offered.Your turn…What would you add to this list? What important life lessons have you learned the hard way? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts with the community.* * *

People dont realize how hard it is to speak truth to a world full of people that dont realize they're living in a lie.
* * *

This life is for loving, sharing, learning, smiling, caring, forgiving, laughing, hugging, helping, dancing, wondering, healing, and even more loving. I choose to live life this way. I want to live my life in such a way that when I get out of bed in the morning, the devil says, 'aw sh**, he's up!
* * *

Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere. Keep walking through the storm. Your rainbow is waiting on the other side.Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. “Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be.Maybe it’s not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it’s about starting over and creating something better. Sometimes the reason good things are not happening to you is because you are the good thing that needs to happen to other people. Hope this can put things into perspective and help you ease your anxiety, if only in the moment.

Compliments By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-24 Insults should be written in sand, compliments should be carved in stone.

A Beautiful PlaceBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-23 Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

When the devil keeps on asking you to look at your past, there must be something good in the future, he doesn't want you to see!!

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so. Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today. Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration. This capable person looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better. Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life. I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will unselfishly share this gift with others. I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others. Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love. Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart. I will welcome new experiences. I will meet new people. I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world. But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles. Beginning today I will learn something new; I will try something different; I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer. I will change what I can and the rest I will let go. I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be. Don't hope......... DECIDE

Why is self-confidence so important? Well, as the famous poem goes: If you think you’re out classed, you are, You have to think high to rise,You must be sure of yourself,Before you can ever win a prize,Think big and your deeds will grow,Think small and you’ll fall behind,Think like you can and you will,It’s all just a state of mind,Life battles don’t always go,To the stronger or faster man,But sooner or later,The fellow who wins,Is the guy who thinks he can.The fact is, if you think you can, you can, and if you think you can’t, you’re right again.  Believing in your ability is requisite for success.  If you don’t believe in your ability no one else will either, and you will literally emit a “low self-esteem signal” to others without even saying a word.  Others will pick-up the signal and respond accordingly (e.g. you don’t get the promotion, because you don’t believe you deserve the promotion). When you don’t believe in your potential, you’ve become your own worst enemy. So start believing in you today, and we will believe in you tomorrow…
* * *

Do not believe for a minute you must explain yourself, or prove yourself, to anyone. You have a destiny and a purpose that no one else on this earth can fulfill. They don't need to understand it. DO NOT LET THEIR BLOWS TAKE YOU DOWN. No matter the ridicule or criticisms...when you KNOW YOUR VALUE, you don't have to beg people to be in your life, to be friend's with you, to spend time with you or to love you. Be CONFIDENT in who you are, just remember not everyone can handle "REAL" LUXURY.

Truth By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-13 Truth is transformed into power when you dissolve prejudice and make yourself receptive to the world as it really is. This is the "ugly truth" that people care not to hear or absorb. It can be maintained only by cultivating a genuine openness~a willingness to see, rather than merely look. When your inner life is clouded, your influence is under a shadow. If you are fearful, you will be attacked. If you vacillate in upholding your principles, you will be tested. Yet, when your mindset is firm and strong, the power of truth can break through even the most stubborn minds!
* * *

Tolerance By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-13 How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.* * *
* * *

"You can never quit. Winners never quit, and quitters never win
* * *

Anyone can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in their error.
* * *

Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.
* * *

The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply.
* * *

The past should not be a tourist destination.
* * *

You Will Be By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-9 You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
* * *

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
* * *

Don't By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-7 Don't give up what you want most, for what you want now.
* * *

Positivity By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-6 Train your mind to see the good in everything. Positivity is a choice. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
* * *

Its hard for a negative mind to see positive results.... Never be your biggest obstacle!!
* * *

Do you always want to be right, or do you want to be happy?
* * *

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom...
* * *

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop.
* * *

Your DreamsBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-9-3 Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
* * *

It starts with a dream... Add Faith, and it becomes a believe.  Add action, and it becomes a part of life.  Add perseverance, and it becomes a goal in sight.  Add patience and time, and it ends with a dream come true.
* * *

Sometimes the things that we can't change, end up changing us
* * *

If we spend our time with regrets over yesterday, and worries over what might happen tomorrow, we have no today in which to live.
* * *

Don’t destroy someone, just because someone once destroyed you.
* * *

“Life changes. We get it all lined up just the way we like it and then something beyond our control comes along and bumps us off center. Nothing stays the same. We grow up, make friends, lose friends, lose track of people, meet new ones and sometimes we ask yourself why.  Every single experience we go through changed us in some way. Every new person who comes into our life changes us..  Every moral dilemma or emotional experience we come up against changes us.  It’s our job to decide how.”
* * *

TrustBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-30 A relationship without trust is like a car without gas..You can stay in it ..but..it won’t go anywhere. * * * Sometimes music speaks what you feel inside.
* * *

Sometimes people don't say sorry. Sometimes people don't believe they were wrong. But that doesn't matter. Apologies aren't what vindicate you, you vindicate yourself. Don't wait for someone to apologize and hold a grudge against them until they do.  You know why? Because the person that feels the wrath of your anger, frustration, and hatred is you. Those hostile feelings, emotions, and thoughts pulsate through your bloodstream like venomous poison, and you become the host keeping that poison alive. Rather than waiting for an apology, or expecting one to come, realize it may never happen and that's okay.  Because your life and your happiness don't depend on someone else saying sorry. Your life and your happiness depend on you and no one else.
* * *

At the end of our lives, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, or how many great things we have done.. we will be judged by "I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in
* * *

"Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary

The Missing Ingredient By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-26 If Success Was Easy, Everyone Would Do ItThere’s also a common misconception that being an entrepreneur is an easy road. The age of information has shown us the fruits of labor of the successful, but it rarely shows the tough road taken to that eventual success – a road that few would take if they knew all that it would entail, including the missing guarantee of success that many feel is at the end of every journey.* * *

Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule…But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them

Act of KindnessBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-21 Carry out a random act of kindnessWith no expectación of rewardSafe in the knowledge that one daySomeone might do the same for you..* * *

Knowledge By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-21 "When you know something, say what you know. When you don't know something, say that you don't know. That is knowledge."

The SoulBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-28 I am not this hair, I am not this skin. I am the soul that lives within.
* * *

Everyone wants the truth but nobody wants to be honest.
* * *

May God give you: For every storm, a rainbow, For every tear,a smile,For every care, a promise, And a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, A solutionAnd an answer for each prayer. Have a nice day friends.
* * *

Learning LifeBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-18 Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
* * *

I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe
* * *

Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.The most important thing is to enjoy your life ,to be happy, Thank you GOD for this lovely gift called "LIFE"As we continue to recover, we come to value the lessons learned through our problems.  But “problem thinking” can be a problem in itself, strangely enough.  It can become an addiction and an escape from life. What happens if our most rewarding communication comes from sharing our problems with friends?  What if our deepest sense of inner strength is only felt when we’re wrestling with a difficulty?  What if we get to feel so comfortable in the midst of problems that we stir up a few if we start to run out?  (Don’t laugh.  Many of us do exactly that.) Creating a struggle around every circumstance may give us a sense of accomplishment – but it surely makes life harder than it needs to be.  The high of engaging in battle is not the only high there is.  We can make connections and get good feelings in more direct and joyful ways. I will not define my life by my problems.  I remind myself that struggle is part of life – not life itself.

WhisperBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-17 When I awoke this morning I asked myself, "What is life about?" I found the answer in my room. The fan said, "Be cool." The roof said, "Aim high." The window said, "See the world." The clock said, "Every minute is precious." The mirror said, "Reflect before you act." The calendar said, " Be up to date." The door said, "Push hard for your goals." The floor said, "Kneel down and pray." God whispered I will take you to it all.* * *

Erasers are NOT made for those who make errors. In fact it is Made for those who are WILLING to CORRECT their MISTAKES.
* * *

When I open my eyes every morning, this is the first of magic ... ... Life is like a gemstone ... sometimes it shines, sometimes it is dull, but it is worth to be lived.
* * *

Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.
* * *

Whats broken can be mended..whats hurt can be healed..no matter how dark it gets, the sun is going to rise again...
* * *

Make peace with your past, enjoy your present, and hope for your future.

Struggle By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-11 If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
* * *

Don't let your ears hear what your eyes didn't see, and don't let your mouth say what your heart doesn't feel.
* * *

Forgive others. Not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
* * *

You May BeBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-8-9 To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.
* * *

Humankind has not woven the web of life.We are but one thread within it.Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.All things are bound together.All things connect.
* * *

We look forward to the time when the power to love will replacethe love of power, then will our world know the blessing of peace

Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.

Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.

Each of us is seeking connection in some way. Whether it be professional or personal, there's an aspect within each of us that yearns to deeply be seen and felt in the presence of others. Those that are aware of their own patterns and emotions can more effectively hold space for others to go deeper within themselves and offer support by simply listening. When those around us are experiencing emotional turbulence, we naturally want to help, and it's important we have an idea of how to effectively support. Hold space by listening, being present, and opening your heart. In doing so, you'll develop empathy which can allow you to more deeply understand what's unfolding within someone. As the emotional energy dissipates, ask for permission to offer reflection and do so objectively while offering wisdom from your own life experience. If you can't offer any context from your own experience then simply be present with love. A simple act of listening is more than enough to aid in the process.

FaithBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2021-7-30 Two Horses interesting and true story -  Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it. From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse.  But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing.... Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him.  This alone is amazing. If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell.Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field. Attached to the horse's halter is a small bell. It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so he can follow.  As you stand and watch these two friends, you'll see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse, and that the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting that he will not be led astray. When the horse with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, it stops occasionally and looks back, making sure that the blind friend isn't too far behind to hear the bell. Like the owners of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges. He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need..  Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places in our lives. Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way.... Good friends are like that... You may not always see them, but you know they are always there..  Please listen for my bell and I'll listen for yours, and remember...  Be kinder than necessary - everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply,Love generously,Care deeply,Speak kindly.......  FOR WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT.

Make a choice not to complain. Complaining is just a way of not taking responsibility, justifying doing nothing, and programming yourself to fail. Complaining creates the illusion that you have done something. Instead, pour your energy into improving your situation. Complainers focus on what has happened, and give up their power. Winners focus on making things happen, and using their power to find solutions to their challenges. You were born to create something magnificent with your life!! Solution-based thinking gives you that power.

Forgiveness is not for the weak....being able to  forgive those who have wronged you, is a mark of spiritual strength and confidence, when you forgive you grow, your heart begins to heal, your back straightens up, your eyes clear, so that you can see the road ahead, anger is a spiritual sickness, but when you forgive, you live

7 things you NEVER EVER doBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]7-7-2021 1. Beg for anyone to stay in your life. 2. Beg for anyone's attention. 3. Beg for anyone's affection. 4. Beg for anyone's loyalty. 5. Beg for something you deserve, anyway. 6. Beg anyone to respect you. 7. Beg anyone to appreciate you. Because you know: If they want you to beg, they don't deserve you. When you feel a need to prove yourself to someone, their inability to see your value says something about them, not you.* * *
* * *

GiveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]7-6-2021 Give what you expect, reflect what you desire, become what you respect, and mirror what you admire.
* * *

Also Wants MeBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]7-4-2021 When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;  If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.  From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.  There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
* * *

BelieveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]7-3-2021 To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
* * *

When you make a promise, you create hope When you keep a promise, you create trust
* * *

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone... Even after all this time the Sun never says to the Earth, you owe me.  Look what happens with a love like that.  It lights the whole sky.  Be nice to people even if your own heart is breaking, because there's no need to break theirs too. "You cannot do kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late." - Ralph Waldo Emerson  Some entrepreneurs think, "How can I make a lot of money?" But the better way is to think, "How can I make people's lives a lot better?" If you get it right, the money will come. Self-discipline begins with mastery of your thoughts.  If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do. It is nice to be important.  But it is more important to be nice.  The truth is airports saw more sincere kisses than wedding halls.  The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches. I can't promise to fix all of your problems, but I can promise you won't face them alone. Each heart has some pain. Only the way of expression is different. If you can't be kind, be quiet. Agree?  Inspire today..

The PlanBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-26-2021 I have said to the moon...it is time you fulfill your promise. It is time for those things of dreams to come to pass. For the seasons keep changing, tides keep coming, and I am afraid I will run out of time.... Suddenly the sky rumbled with a soft tired sigh as the Moon spoke. .'yes child I know it is time. But a river does not flow to the sea in a day. So you must know it is all in the plan...just hold on a little longer to that dream. It has been spoken.

Life can be hectic and stressful...If you allow yourself to slowdown, take even just a few minutes out of your day to tilt your head back and close your eyes. Just breathe everything in...The cars driving by, the sun shining through the windows, the smell of the great outdoors, your heart beat, the cozy clothes on your body, the love from a family member or friend. Thank the Universe, God, Allah whoever, whatever it is you believe in and just be thankful for life...cause at the end of the day...we only get  one life
* * *

Be PositiveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-23-2021 If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L means "first attempt in learning" ..end is not the end in fact E.N.D means effort never dies..if you get no as an answer remember N.O actually means next opportunity..so lets be positive.
* * *

Nothing in life is for free. Life is not easy. Life is not simple. It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication. It will require willpower. You will need to make healthy decisions or revert back to square one. It requires sacrifice. You will need to push yourself to the max. There will be temptations and diversions along the way. You will need to stand firm in your integrity and build your strength of character. But I promise, when you reach your goal, it will be worth it and then you can set another one, never let up on the momentum keep pushing forward!

Kindness and GentlenessBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-22-2021 I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I want to like and help everyone - if possible - We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness- not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise another. In this world there is room for everyone. And thegood earth is rich andcan provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us in to misery and bloodshed. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than hate we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost....* * *

Vision With ActionBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-21-2021 Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world. How often do we hear grand expressions of a vision, and yet see no action forthcoming? Politicians are probably the people we most associate with this.On the other hand, we all know people who rush into every challenge without really thinking about where they’re going. Such impulsiveness generally ends badly.So, when we have the next bright idea let’s be sure to first analyse how we can achieve it. We don’t need to go into it in minute detail – this would lead to ‘analysis paralysis.’ Rather, it’s about understanding the big picture and the major milestones we need to achieve along the way, and then starting towards the first one.We need to combine the vision with appropriate action to achieve our goals – to change the world. History shows how effective this can be…* * *
* * *

Every champion was once a contender that didn’t give up So often we’re inclined to look at successful people and wonder whether it was inheritance, luck or some other act of fortune that made them successful. And while there will always be some that did get there this way, they are in a tiny minority.The vast majority of successful people – in whatever field – get there simply because they didn’t allow setbacks to put them down. They just kept pushing through to achieve their goals.So, although it sometimes seems easier to stop, don’t. Just keep on going and you will win through…

Never Be ProudBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-21-2021 Every king was once a baby, and every building was once a drawing. it is not important what you are today, most important thing is where you shall be tomorrow.

Most Beautiful By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-19-2021 Someday when the pages of my life end, I know that you will be one of its most beautiful chapters.
* * *

You hear people say this all the time: “I have a right to be upset because of the way I’ve been treated. I have a right to be angry, hurt, depressed, sad, and resentful.” Learning to avoid this kind of thinking is one of my secrets for living a life of inner peace, success, and happiness. Anytime you’re filled with resentment, you’re turning the controls of your emotional life over to others to manipulate. At the root of virtually all spiritual practice is the notion of forgiveness. Think about every single person who has ever harmed you, cheated you, defrauded you, or said unkind things about you. Your experience of them is nothing more that a thought that you carry around with you. These thoughts of resentment, anger, and hatred represent slow, debilitating energies that will disempower you. If you could release them, you would know more peace. You practice forgiveness for two reasons: to let others know that you no longer wish to be in a state of hostility with them and to free yourself from the self-defeating energy of resentment. Send love in some form to those you feel have wronged you and notice how much better you feel.” Always aim for peace When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace “When you’re at peace with yourself and love your self, it is virtually impossible to do things to yourself that are destructive.” “Make peace with silence, and remind yourself that it is in this space that you’ll come to remember your spirit. When you’re able to transcend an aversion to silence, you’ll also transcend many other miseries. And it is in this silence that the remembrance of God will be activated.” “Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.”

The invisible pollens produce the visible fruits.  The invisible atoms can destroy a city by fusion and fission. The microbes not seen by naked eyes can ferment, pollute or infect. The heart, lung and the spleen work silently to keep the life going. The question is not visibility but performance.  All languages originate in the womb of silence.  My silence has so much of concern. Good morning.

Happy fathers day to all fathers.  God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree, The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea, The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night, The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle's flight, The joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed, The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need, Then God combined these qualities, When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, And so, He called it ...

IT is the journey from head back to the heart, from words, back to silence; getting back to our innocence in spite of our intelligence. Although very simple, this is a great achievement. Knowledge should lead you to that beautiful point of "I don't know." The purpose of knowledge is ignorance.The completion of knowledge will lead you to amazement and wonder. It makes you aware of this existence.Mysteries are to be lived, not understood.One can live life so fully in its completeness, in its totality.

Listening to Each OtherBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-12-2021 The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. We are all here to share our story .. taking the time to listen without judgement, communicates respect more than any words we could say .. the best way to understand people is to listen to them and giving our time and attention, is pure generosity .. a loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well intentioned words One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to each other* * *

Speak Peace and LoveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-11-2021 To all the people who suffer in body and spirit because of war, torture and dictatorship. To all those who because of the wickedness of men who govern them, are deprived of their rights and subjected to continual harassment. To all the women in various parts of the world are exploited, abused, raped in body and spirit. All the children who suffer for their conditions of exploitation, violence, hunger and misery. To all those who are deprived of their freedom to express their ideas or who are censored or imprisoned, only to be defenders of freedom and peace. To all people of good will who devote their lives to the service of the suffering and the dispossessed. To all people of good will. I hope that one day not too far away we can all speak the same language that is called: PEACE and LOVEMay God bless all! * * *

Confidence By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-10-2021 Standing for what you believe in,Regardless of the odds against you,and the pressure that tears at your resistance,... means courage.Keeping a smile on your face,When inside you feel like dying,For the sake of supporting others,... means strength.Stopping at nothing,And doing what's in your heart,You know is right,... means determination.Doing more than is expected,To make another's life a little more bearable,Without uttering a single complaint,... means compassion.Helping a friend in need,No matter the time or effort,To the best of your ability,... means loyalty.Giving more than you have,And expecting nothing,But nothing in return,... means selflessness.Holding your head high,And being the best you know you can beWhen life seems to fall apart at your feet,Facing each difficulty with the confidenceThat time will bring you better tomorrows,And never giving up,... means confidence* * *

Every time you complain, you're putting negative energy into the world — and into your life. And that's something you definitely don't want to be doing if you're striving to live more positively in the present. The more you complain about your life (even if it's simply in your mind), the less space you leave for positive thoughts that celebrate what you should be grateful for.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.Cherish every momentEvery moment that passes by is a moment that we will never get back. It should be a huge priority for everyone to cherish every moment that we possibly can. Make sure that you spend that time with your loved ones. Yes, it is important to work, but sometimes sacrifices must be made in order to just be there for the people that we love, and that know really need our support.Don't waste time in the pursuit of your dreams. They may seem out of reach at the moment, but the farther along that you progress, the less the distance will be to the finish line. Never stop, or let anything stop you from doing what you love, with the people that you love and that truly love you. Cherish every single moment in your life, because you never know when it will end, and because time is something that when spent, can never be recouped

Situations By James Ogle [One]6-7-2021 If you’re waiting around for conditions to be perfect before you stick your neck out you’ll be waiting forever. This reminds us that you have to have some faith in order to branch into something new and unknown. Take the flying leap and trust that if you don’t make it that things will be OK and you’ll land safely. What usually ends up happening is that situations will present themselves that never could have or would have presented themselves had you not made a bold choice and thrown yourself into it.* * *

Love and RespectBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]6-7-2021 Be at peace with yourself. Sometimes being "in the game" is worth less then you think. Consider the cost...then decide. I'd rather leave this world with love and respect then a ton of money.

With a broken heart I will explain this much to you... for the last few days, for the first time in my career, I have questioned what all my sacrifices were for... but with pride I can say, I would do it all over again because unlike most that hate us, I have made and will continue to make a difference... You hate me because I wear a badge. Let me tell you about the badge and the thousands of men and women it represents. This badge ran towards certain death as the Towers collapsed on 9-11. This badge ran into the line of fire to save the people in the Pulse Night Club. This badge sheltered thousands as bullets rained down from the Mandalay Hotel in Las Vegas. This badge protected a BLM rally that left five officers dead in Dallas. This badge ran into the Sandy Hook School to stop a school shooter. This badge killed the Oregon District mass shooter in seconds. This badge has done CPR on your drowned child. This badge has fist fought the abuser who beat up and left a spouse in a coma. This badge has run into burning buildings to save the occupants. This badge has been shot for simply existing. This badge has waded through flood waters to rescue the elderly trapped on the roof. This badge has intentionally crashed into the wrong way driver to protect innocent motorists. This badge has helped find the lost child so his mother would stop crying hysterically. This badge has helped the injured dog off the road and rushed it to the vet. This badge has escorted the elderly woman across the street because she couldn't see well and was afraid to cross. This badge has bought food for hungry kids because they had been abandoned. This badge has been soaked in blood and tears. This badge has been covered by a mourning band to honor those who have sacrificed everything in service. You may hate me because I wear it. But, I wear it with pride. Despite your hate and your anger, I will await the next call for help. And, I will come without hesitation just like thousands of other men and women across this great nation. This badge. ~ Unknown

Together  we are all on a journey  called  life. We are a little  broken  and a little  shattered  inside. Each one of us  is aspiring to make it to the end. None is deprived of  pain here and we have all suffered in our own  ways.  I think  our journey  is all about  healing ourselves and healing each other in our own special ways. Let's  just help each other to put all those  pieces back together and make it to the end more beautifully. Let us help each other  survive.

The highest tribute to the dead is not grief but gratitude.
* * *

Security is happiness..Why is it that only a small number manage to find a path to happiness? The answer is simple, there’s a price to pay. It’s more than most actually want to pay. Mankind seeks pleasure and possessions, neither are actually paths to happiness. Simple security in life is.Life’s wisdom will always lie in our perceptions. Views not formed by anxiety or damned by despair, boredom, or by fear. Happiness, not mere satisfaction or contentment unfolds as a new bud in the spring with positive thoughts. Happiness then becomes like a pair of eyeglasses correcting our spiritual vision. Unhappiness leads to a wall of despair that we cannot climb over until our happiness returns. The beginning of wisdom will be fairest when our thoughts are the happiest, positive, and productive.Man is capable of loving and giving; also at the same time capable of taking and killing. Man’s diabolical way of manifestation through thought actually makes man the worst enemy of man. I feel through man’s intellect alone we lose our identity. For when man gives his power to intellect alone he separates himself from his truest self.The mind always will be divided; if we take the word devil which comes from the Latin word “Diablos”, or divide; we find the evilest of devils right between our ears if we are not responsible for our thoughts. It judges and condemns, constantly fighting to get what it wants and to rid itself of what it thinks it doesn’t want. Mankind’s mind has both God or good, and the devil or evil within.We continually prove our capability to bring suffering upon us; we come into this life crying, and often leave it crying even harder. It’s become easy to kill and destroy each other.Many today are finding it hard to meet their basic needs while a few live abundant lifestyles; many are to the point of no longer believing they can live a successful life. This isn’t right and we know it.Buddha once said,” it is your mind that has created this world.” Christ also came to a similar conclusion when he said, “In the beginning the word was with God and the Word was God.” Life is how you process your beliefs. Your thoughts are the basis of the entire process of influence, both positive and negative.These two teachers revolutionized their times, and their messages remain relevant today, more than 2000 years later. What these two teachers understood with their heart, mankind continues to see with intellect. The intellectual approach is formed from a conscious mind that separates and harms. This was not the case for Christ or Buddha.Descartes once said, “I think, therefore I am.” These five words express mankind’s most abundant power, the power of thought. “As you think, so you shall be” also expresses the power of thinking. So how do you think of yourself, your brothers and sisters, the world, or your creator?When Hellen Keller found these words it changed her life. She realized that her mind could be an instrument of unlimited possibilities of colors, sounds, and places. She realized that she could see and hear, often better than those who see and hear; that the way we think of life creates the life we live. She learned that when one becomes the master of their mind, they become the master of their life.Make your feelings good thoughts and you will create the best life for you and for the world you live in. You can become someone that nobody can buy; become a service to humanity, and develop a deep love for all life. The heart then becomes an ocean of love, and generosity from which the divine flows. The mind is a cascade of finely cut diamonds, infinite in its beauty and creativity. It reflects the substance of life itself. Many feel they are subject to the mind, while others make their mind an ally. Be aware and responsible for your thoughts, it’s such a secure place to live.Just a thought,

Life is simple. It's just not easy...  There is always a way out from a situation, but you need to use your imagination and find the simplest solution.  Why complicate things? The most important lessons I've learnt from Agatha Christie's novels 'Pay attention to every detail and no matter the situation, never let your emotions overpower your intelligence' Kill fear, overcome self-doubt, beat failure, and trust your gut... Think simple  Think differently Think right And believe...  To every problem, there is a most simple solution

You Are LimitlessBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/31/2021 You are limitless... You can do what you want and you can achieve anything if you have the courage to dream it. Just take a step inside your mind... Stand in front of the mirror and you will find your worst enemy. Guess who? You.  I can see the fear in your eyes...I can hear your self talk...I can feel your emotions...I can imagine your insecurities and doubts... Your limits are only in your mind. You want to change your life but you fear fear itself.  Don't forget, fear is a silent dream killer and all of your limits are self-imposed. Change the way you see yourself and you will discover your superpowers. Anyone can be a hero, but not everyone will. It takes courage, self-confidence, sacrifice, hard work, passion, patience and determination.  Dare to be your own hero now! Nobody is better than you. Move in the direction where you want to go. I believe you can do it, just believe in yourself and be humble. No one is better than anyone else, never stop learning and practicing... You are awesome...No matter what people say, no matter what you may think sometimes, never doubt yourself. Nothing must break you, fight till you die!!!  Life is an exciting journey... Please smile, happiness looks so gorgeous on you :-)Let's smile and make others smile today * * *

Unique By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/30/2021 Yourself is your most valuable asset... Never lower your standards, compromise your values, or dishonor your name for anyone. It's okay to hear 'No' than 'Yes' and lose your soul.  Be yourself, the best version of yourself, and the real people will love the real you. Sometimes you fall down because there is something 'precious' down there you're supposed to find and it will change your life forever. Just...  You can't have it all, all at once... Be patient, be positive, learn to love the 'No' and challenge yourself to work hard and never give up until you reach your goal. Your power is within you... Knock on every door, if no doors are opening for you maybe you're knocking on the wrong door. Change the path and keep on knocking, and the right door will be opened to you. Numbers don't matter, outcome does... You are more valuable than you think. Please don't forget how unique you are!

Beautiful Self3/30/2021By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] Authenticity is not something we have or don’t have. It’s a practice and conscious decision of how we want to live. It’s the moment you decide to show up and be real. The decision to be honest and show your authentic Wild Nature. Being authentically you, is not about standing out or being different from others. Being authentic means you follow your path, not comparing to others. We all have our own journeys and missions to fulfill. When you try to be ‘different,’ you will disconnect from what you truly wish to manifest. When being authentically you becomes a hype, self-development will no longer be a meaningful journey. The mandate to become ‘different’ will turn us into anything but authentic. Authenticity is about staying true to what you believe, not about your image— to unapologetically express your genuine feelings and opinions.. even when we disappoint or even loose others. It can be truly hard at times, but it’s much more painful to betray our own truth and Soul-mission just to please others.  Let’s be our beautiful selves. It’s truly enough.* * *

True to the PathBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/21/2021 You can't measure your success by the number of people who follow you. You measure it by how true you are to the path. Because if you aren't true to the path, no amount of societal success will ever gratify you. And if you are true to path, the way that the world receives you is of little significance. Because you have already found your way home.

When you’re always optimistic you give yourself the greatest chance of success. Im saying that it multiplies the force of your efforts many times over. This means that if you take the same action, but do it once in a mindset of optimism and once in a mindset of pessimism the outcomes will be very different. The action you take with an optimistic mindset will be far more effective and produce much better results. The trick is always having this mindset even after a failure. * * * Let Yourself By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/6/2021 Let it all go. If anything is meant for you nothing will get in its way. Don't sit on the sidelines of your own life. Stop lifting those who do not lift you. Lift yourself and let yourself.

All You NeedBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/2/2021 I know you face heartache and stress. I know you search for answers. Sometimes they are not the answers you thought, but the ones you need. Sometimes you must let go to receive. Sometimes you must receive to let go. Sometimes, all you need are open arms...

What We BringBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/2/2021 Some people go through life trying to find out what the world holds for them only to find out too late that it is what they bring to the world that really counts.

Bow Before Children By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]3/1/2021 Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.

Your path is not for others to understandBut for You to Enjoy ️

SpiritBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/28/2021 Sometimes words are dust in the wind and rainbows are within the circle of dreams you keep hidden, or so you think. Someone is Going to know the difference, because their spirit is connected to yours and always has been. You just have to remember that.

BestBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/27/2021 When the best things aren't possible, make the best of the things that are.
* * *

Looking back, makes you smart. Looking forward, makes you mature. Looking down, makes you wise. Looking UP, makes you strong.
* * *

Maybe sometimes people don't change; maybe you just never really knew who they were.

Free to Be HappyBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/23/2021 Please don't assume that a person that is smiling is happy, dont assume that a person that looks healthy really is, don't assume that a person that looks successful has it all figured out, don't assume that a person that has power doesn't have needs, don't assume that the person in the grocery shop that doesn't treat you right, or the guy that cut in front of you while driving are bad people. The more I understand, everyone is trapped in their own delusions, in their own past, in their own anger, in their own sadness, and that we all need each other, and that we all are the same...sometimes is hard to reach out to others because "we dont know them", but if we know a little about ourselves, we know everyone else, we all have exactly the same thoughts and same desire: we all look for being happy and being free from suffering! Lets look at everyone today with these 2 things in mind...anyone accept this challenge? just for the next 12 hours!:). * * *
* * *

Working ForBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/19/2021 If people who have been together for any length of time tell you that they have never been through tough times, question their honesty. It is the belief that relationships are not disposable, they are worth working for.

Rise AboveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/17/2021 The world can be a hard place to live in, and is difficult to not become jaded. Which is why you should let your smile change the world, but don't let the world change your smile. We find ourselves faced with challenges every day, and it is very easy to let those issues wear on us. At first it starts in our attitude, maybe you become mildly annoyed with your present situation. Then you begin to let the issues wear you down to where you have changed into an entirely different person. You find yourself going through life and no longer enjoying the things that you used to and people begin to notice. Then you are seen as a version of yourself that isn't the truth. Plus Dealing with problems is a great art in this lifetime, and is one that requires a lot of practice. Never let your worries shape the person that you are. This specifically refers to you becoming sad or upset because of your life, and that affecting your smile. I want you to think about the last time that you treated someone badly just because you were stressed out. These are the events that cause us to change who we are. What we have learned is that we have to rise above all of the pain and strife and look toward the future. By doing this we can begin to lead our way through life in a positive way with a smile on our faces. Life is far too short to be miserable, so shake off your worry today.

"Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you’ll see them all around you

Friends are like angels, who brighten our days, in all kinds of wonderful, magical ways.  Their thoughtfulness comes as a gift from above, and we feel we’re surrounded by warm, caring love.  Like upside-down rainbows, their smiles bring the sun, and they fill the ho-hum moments with laughter and fun.  Friends are like angels without any wings, blessing our lives with the most precious things.” Happy Valentine’s Day.  You’re so very precious to me. You help in ways you can never understand. You are always in my prayers. And I so look forward to hearing from you, I am truly blessed. Have a wonderful day and I hope you truly feel loved, because you are...happy weekend

First StepsBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/15/2021 Everyone has an idea, but it’s taking those first steps toward turning that idea into a reality that are always the toughestThink of how many times you have heard someone say, “I had that idea years ago,” when reacting to something new that hits the market. People have amazing new ideas daily, but the only way to make them a reality is to take action. Becoming an entrepreneur has a lot of risks in the beginning -- something not everyone is willing to take. The first steps, including the decision to move forward, are what separate successful entrepreneurs from the millions that just have great ideas.* * *
* * *

LoveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/14/2021 Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
* * *

InspireBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/14/2021 I have found some times the best way to get out of a rut is to get your CRAZY on! Change your perspective! Even if this is doing something you have never done before and wanted to. It is VERY VITAL to inspire our passions. You need to be active and really focus on your duties that inspire you to reassess all you do over the course of each 24-hour period. Make sure you have an agenda that allows you to use your resources: time, energy, and intellect~more wisely. When you inspire your passion people will FEEL it!.
* * *

GiveBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/14/2021 You're not a victim for sharing your story, you know who you are, and what happened to you. You are a survivor setting the world on fire with your truth. And you never know who needs your light, your warmth, and raging courage..thank you for coming forward and knowing this will give hundreds of others the opportunity and courage to do the same and never have to suffer in silence.* * *
* * *

PassionBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/14/2021 It comes down to finding something you love to do and then just trying to be great at it. You have to absolutely love what you are doing, first and foremost, because if you don’t you are going to be completely miserable. Being an entrepreneur and starting a business will command the majority of your time -- you have to be prepared to eat, sleep and breathe your business. If it isn’t something you love to do, it will be very hard to put in the dedication and work required to make it successful. When you create a business around a true passion you will naturally want to make it better.Life is not complex.  We are complex.  Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing.* * *
* * *

Messenger of HopeBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/7/2021 Life has many secretsLook deep into yourselfAnd you will definitely Discover them, discover youIt's easy to get lost in the blurTo live without a compassTo canoe with no directionJust surviving...Seeking false pleasure Running after moneyLiving without meaningIs this the real life? Without values, life is a lieWithout purpose, life is nothingSometimes, you don't know Where you are or where to goLiving in a fake dream...Then, someone comes out of nowhereGiving you a hand, giving you a smileAnd nothing stays the sameIt's never too late to be better than yesterdayThe right path is not always the easiest oneJust be patient, forgive yourselfAnd begin again right nowThere is no one either good or badEveryone has a hidden storySome just do it better than othersSo never ever judge anyoneAppearences are pretty little liarsJust help, give and supportWithout expecting anything in returnAnd feel the power of GOD's loveRemember, we were created for a purposeAnd we meet everyone for a reason Be the change, be a light...Be a messenger of hope
* * *

We live in an immediate gratification kind of society. If we want a cup of coffee, we drive through Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. So why should the idea of being successful be any different? We wish for and admire those who have achieved “overnight success.” We attempt the path of least resistance when it comes to achieving success; we even look for the latest get-rich-quick scheme, or pray and hope for somebody to discover us. We live in America, after all—rags-to-riches stories are part of our culture. Right? Maybe not… There are people who really do have a spark. They get a great idea and decide to go for it. But they ultimately fail, only because they do not stick with it long enough for their endeavor to succeed—they did not see it through to the end.I have learned, from the many biographies I have read of famous athletes, entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists, artists, that success most certainly does not happen quickly. In fact, it usually took many years of dedication and hard work to achieve the level of success that these people enjoyed. I especially love the story of Colonel Sanders. At age 65, Colonel Harland Sanders went around to many restaurants to share his fried chicken recipe. It took more than 1,000 no’s before he got a yes. But now everybody knows what “finger lickin’ good” means. As a blogger and a writer, I have personally learned that success takes time, hard work, and just plain stick-to-it-ness. Have you ever noticed on the web that there are a lot of dead blogs out there (according to the International Bloggers Association, approximately 95 percent of bloggers quit)? They are in the blog graveyard along with their deceased Twitter feeds and Facebook pages. It is kind of sad, really. All of these blogs started with excitement. They started with purposeful energy. Now they are just goneMy blog has opened up so many doors for me that would have remained closed if I had quit.. I have met and befriended people and companies from all around the globe; I have found my voice and confidence; and most importantly, I have found a meaningful way to help people. I may not know you personally, but I will bet there is something inside you that is stirring and wants to get out. Perhaps it is a business you want to start or a new degree you want to go back to school for and finish. It might be a creative project or something for your employer that will really help your company and your career. Perhaps you simply want to improve your financial prospects or be in a position to be an agent for positive change in your community. I am going to set a course for finishing a marathon—which can be a 26-mile race, or any contest, event, or the like, of greater than normal length or duration or requiring exceptional endurance . The million dollar question is this: How do you stick with it (whatever “it” is) long enough to succeed? These five steps can help you cross the finish line of this marathon—and you will see your idea through. 1. Find the passion.Embark on this project only if you are passionate about it, because it’s passion that energizes you for the long-haul. If not, you will inevitably tire of it and probably will not stay with it. 2. Know your “why.”Why are you doing this? For me, writing in my journal helps clarify why it is important to me. Ask yourself, how will your idea impact your life? Your career? How will it help others? Your family? 3. Write out a plan.The best intentions can get lost if we don’t have a roadmap to follow. Write out a business plan for your idea that includes tangible action steps. Make them specific. Give them a timeframe. 4. Make it a daily habit.Sometimes to make our big plans and dreams come true, we have to fit them into whatever else we have going on in our lives. You have to find a way to incorporate this plan into your daily life so that it becomes as routine as brushing your teeth. I did this with my blogging. I got up early in the morning and wrote during my coffee time instead of reading the newspaper. I gave myself just enough time to write a post and get ready to go to work. And I did this for years. Now my routine is to write and blog in the early evening when I get home from my day job and before it is time to make dinner (and thankfully I have an understanding wife, for often we eat dinner pretty late due to my writing projects). 5. Stick with it.Have the big picture in mind. What are you aspiring to do? Don’t let anything or anybody discourage you. Just do it. Eventually, if you keep the end goal in mind, you will get there. You really will! And when you do, it will be so worth it.

You Can Do ItBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/5/2021 The will to do springs from the knowledge that we CAN do.What is the number one thing you most wish you could do or achieve in life? Today I'm here to tell you… you can do it. No question. I know without a doubt that whatever it is you most want to do in life that you. can. DO IT.  Want to know how I know? The following six reasons: 1. The Spice Girls did it.I want you to go listen to the song “Wannabe” ("I'll tell you what I want what I really really want") for as long as you can stand it. So like 17 seconds probably. Now realize that this song was (still is) the best-selling single by a female band in the history of the WORLD. You can do it. 2. Kim Kardashian did it.Did what? Exactly. If Kim Kardashian walked right past your face, you wouldn't recognize her. She's like 5 feet tall, three-fourths of her body weight is her butt, and here is a picture of her prior to her daily four hour makeup session. She's just a regular person except with less obvious talent and probably lower IQ than you. You can do it. 3. The Snuggie did it.The Snuggie, perhaps the most ridiculous invention of all time, has sold 20 million units grossing over $400 million. The best part? They stole the idea from The Slanket which was invented 10 years prior. So… someone saw a dumb idea, stole it, renamed it something better and now they're rich. You can do it. 4. That one dumb rich guy you personally know did it.Everyone has one—that one friend who is so stupid and so filthy rich  Your friend may not be smart, but he's doin' it. You can do it. 5. Albert Einstein did it.Albert Einstein didn't start talking until he was 4 years old. It's called Einstein Syndrome. He divorced his wife and married his cousin. He refused to wear socks. He declined a surgery which could have saved him because "extending life artificially is tasteless." The best part? Much like the Snuggie, he stole a lot of his ideas from other physicists. E=MC2? Published by Olinto De Pretto two years prior to Einstein. Every scientist friend I know says Einstein was nowhere near as smart as people think. He was simply well connected and a good marketer. I'm not saying you should steal people's ideas and call them your own, but... You can do it. I write stuff people read for some weird reason(only joking!) I have a  message for you today. And that message is: YOU CAN DO IT. Change your mind, and the world changes with it.

You Deserve Peace By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/5/2021 Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace. Have a peaceful day everyone.You will begin to heal when you let go of past hurts, forgive those who have wronged you and learn to forgive yourself for your mistakesForgiveness is more about ourselves and being free from the energetic hold. As we hold onto grudges, we are held hostage to our past. With some people, fighting is not the solution. You can never win with them. Hurting and fighting is in their nature and they do not suffer by doing it, so once again, you get hurt. With certain people, the one and only way is to stay away from them and you have peace. You don’t need to fight or forgive, just stay away and peace will surround you by time goes by.It does take a while for the process of forgiving to take place, but it is worth it. Just don’t blame yourself for all the time it takes you. Put your well being first and let things unfold at your own pace and more from the heart than from the head.Have a peaceful day everyone.

Signs of BeautyBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]1/5/2021 The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.A beautiful person is kind and sincere. A person who believes in thinking before talking, who believes in treating others and they want to be treated. To me, true beauty is not about HOW a person looks; but how they carry themselves. To me, a beautiful person has morals, and think of others and care about other people. A person who believes in trying to rise above rough times. A man who believes in looking at a woman as his equal partner instead of treating her as if she is inferior to him.A woman who would not dream of raising a hand against a man except true self-defense. A person who prefers to be an original ( in a good way) instead of concerning themselves with being in with the in-crowd all the time. A humble person and would never put themselves on the pedestal nor have anyone put them on a pedestal. A person who treat people they CANNOT stand in the worse possible way with respect.* * *
* * *

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence
* * *

Earth's Like A Body By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]2/5/2021 Even the most powerful nation cannot establish peace and prosperity at home by itself without establishing global peace and prosperity. We have to think of the whole world like a body, and every nation is a part of this body.* * *

Responsibility By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]1/21/2021 "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today."
* * *

What makes people say you inspire them? It's never the outside package. Time is so short and there is little room for insincere connections in your day. Family, blood and mission, are paramount. In the richest kingdoms, the kings still eat and sleep. Humanity is not showing its better side lately. I've seen things I can't unsee. I've had conversations I can't forget. Give someone all the riches in the world and when they lose someone they love they hold no value. Rethink your humanity. Your essence. Your soul. Help someone tomorrow you would not normally have crossed paths with. Put down the latte and the smartphone and engage your humanity.
* * *

The worst thing about being lied to is simply knowing you weren't worth the truth

Let New Beginnings signify another chapter filled with pages of Success and Happiness, written by the ink of Hard Work and Intelligence.

Excited for the Challenge By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 1/1/2021 Today I will begin my journey to not only achieve the goals I've set for myself both professionally and personally but to fulfill happiness and success for others along the way. 2020 was a tough year for me in so many ways but it also provided me experiences and appreciation. To the ones I've lost, loved, you made me better, stronger and wiser. This new year will be different for me and I'm excited for the challenge ahead.  Thank you too all my connections, and friends who have been there for me!  This group is filled with amazing people! * * *
* * *

Courage is action, not talk.
* * *

I chose to believe. I believe in the power of calling. i believe in honor and sacrifice, in courage through the danger and strength through the struggle. I believe in hope. I believe in the power of will, in justice, in a new day and in making a difference. I will never stop believing no matter what comes my way that I can make a difference in this world. Some may hate, while others might turn a blind eye and don't want to know. There will be burdens and risks. Loss of brothers and sisters and the challenge to keep going. No matter what confronts me, no matter what the danger, I will keep my faith, my hope and my courage. I am a defender and a peacekeeper. I can make a difference in this world for humanity.

Seven Resolutions By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/30/2020 1.  Begin. – Remember the feeling you get from taking the first step is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around thinking about it.  So get up and get moving.  Take the first step this year – just one small step forward.  The greatest miracle of your success will not be that you finished, it will be that you had the courage to begin. 2.  Work hard on the essential. – Don’t be busy, be productive.  Don’t track your time, track your results.  Put first things first and get them done.  And don’t expect your goal to be easy; it’s supposed to be hard.  If it wasn’t hard you would already have it completed, and so would everyone else.  The hard part is what makes it worthwhile.  In life there are no shortcuts to any place worth going. 3.  Stay true to your path. – A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.  You have to do what’s right for you; no one else walks in your shoes.  Keep moving forward, beyond the negative rhetoric echoing from the peanut gallery.  Do what you have to do, for you.  Live a life you are proud of.  And the moment you realize you’re not, find the strength to start over again on a new path. 4.  Nurture your self-confidence. – You have everything you need within you to become the best possible version of YOU.  Believe that you CAN.  Believe that you’re capable of pushing harder and farther than you have before.  Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, smart enough and strong enough to achieve your goals.  Don’t let false beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.  And certainly don’t get sidetracked by the people around you who are not on track. 5.  Be sincerely kind to those around you. – Kindness in words creates positivity.  Kindness in thinking creates confidence.  Kindness in giving creates love.  Through kindness you have the ability to make a profound difference in every life you touch, including your own.  When you guide someone who is lost and confused, when you hold someone who is sad and grieving, when you hug someone who has lost all their hope, you too will feel yourself healing and growing stronger.  Remember, the vast majority of positive changes come about in someone’s life simply because one other person cares for them, believes in them, and motivates them.  So be that other person when you can. 6.  Accept the things you can’t change. – What you resist, persists.  If you are resisting something, you are feeding it.  Any energy you actively fight, you are feeding.  If you are using negative energy to push something away, you are inviting it to stay. Choose to accept what is, be positive and proactive, let go of the need to control every tiny detail, and embrace peace in the process. 7.  Set a good example. – It’s not about what you say; it’s about how you live your life every day.  The people who look up to you are watching you all the time.  These people are like sponges – what they see or feel you do, they will imitate.  So remember that your words mean a lot less than what you’re doing.  Choose to believe that you can and will change lives with what you do each day, and you will.  Let your actions speak for themselves.* * *

Our JourneyBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/30/2020 Our Journey Together is so Short"* A beautiful message for all of us....Take a minute please  A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.  The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something. The young lady responded with a smile:  "It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop." This response deserves to be written in golden letters: *"It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short"* If each one of us realized that our time here is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy. Did someone break your heart? *Be calm, the journey is so short.* Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? *Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short.* Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that *our journey together is so short.* No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. *Our journey together is so short.* Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness.  If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness.  After all, *Our Journey Together is so Short!*
* * *

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
* * *

Life has many doors to be opened. Never waste your time on the wrong ones. Walk through them, if one refuses to open, it is not your door! No answer is also an answer~. In order for us to reach our full potential and fulfill our destiny, we have to go through:Rejections, heartbreaks, and disappointments. Yes, it hurts but!"You have to keep breaking your heart till it opens". Problems are the signs of life!"You do not need to fight them; you need to solve them". What happened, happened & could not have happened any other way!  Many people struggle to accept this fact therefore they suffer. We can't control what life has planned for us, but we always can control how we react. "Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is the true power". Lao Tzu Never lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems stressed & upset. Remember, things might not go as you planned, but they will always end up as they should. The moon taught me it's okay to go through phases. The sun taught me that no matter how many times I go down, keep on rising Wish you a great day & night.
* * *

Peace to Others By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/28/2020 Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life.  When the paths are separated, return to the wholeness of yourself, give thanks for the foot print left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own.* * *
* * *

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never truly live if you are forever looking for the meaning of life
* * *

A house built on greed cannot long endure.
* * *

"Happiness can not be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."
* * *

People often succeed because they have fun in what they are doing. But they are always serious with their responsibilities. Go through life like a child - always full of curiosity, humility, simplicity and contentment. Never lose your sense of wonder.
* * *

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.Worst of all is when success-seekers hypnotize themselves into a toxic belief system—political, religious or commercial—for the sake of personal advancement.  As the author Upton Sinclair observed more than a hundred years ago, “It’s difficult to get a man to understand something if his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny, invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man’s pride.
* * *

Practice Gratitude By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/31/2020 Practicing gratitude is a wonderful way to make your life better. When you start being thankful you just see more and more of the good things instead of everything that is wrong in your life. I love it. I am so thankful just to be alive. It's amazing!!
* * *

There is only one place and time where you can live your life .. and that is sandwiched between yesterday and tomorrow.. Life keeps changing .. presenting us with new and wonderful views and opportunities .. and that is the beauty ..    keep your heart and eyes open to feel and see the beautiful in life        Only look back in gratitude .. always look forward in hope
* * *

My mission and purpose in life is not to prove that I am better than anyone else 'my mission and purpose is demonstrate through actions, examples and suggestions that whatever and everything that is CURRENT and NOW can be improved and always be improved.
* * *

You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.
* * *

Persevere! By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/25/2020 The greatest gift that you were ever given is your imagination. This gift belongs solely and ONLY to you and therefore, unlike in so many other areas of your life, no one can influence, impact or even infiltrate it. Your imagination is your very own realm that is absolutely capable of fulfilling your EVERY wish. You must BELIEVE by using your creative power and your goals must be in alignment with the greater good for your actions to meet success. Don't let yourself be distracted, or you may lose this power, BELIEVE in your vision and PERSEVERE!
* * *

Powerful King, Prince and JesterBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/25/2020 Nothing is as bad as it seems. SEE even the most dismal situations in a positive light, THEY CAN BE DONE AND OVERCOME. Consider your steps carefully. People of ability find their way and make progress even in difficult circumstances. Weak and strong forces (or people) can co-exist when the weaker element does not impose upon the stronger, when the weaker maintains good humor and avoids taking bold action. Sometimes one must get by with a little grace and good humor. After all, in the court of a powerful king, the jester often has more power than the prince.* * *
* * *

In life you’ll realize there is a purpose for everyone you meet.  Some will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you.  But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you. Keep people in your life who truly love you, motivate you, encourage you, enhance you, and make you happy.  If you know people who do none of these things, let them goToo often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring – all of which have the potential to turn a life around.   The most beautiful thing is to see a person you love smiling.  And even more beautiful is knowing that you are the reason behind it. Choose your relationships wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company. Being alone does not mean you are lonely, and being lonely does not meanyou are alone. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely. Love means giving someone the chance to hurt you, but trusting them not to. You know you’ve found true love when you catch yourself falling in love with the same person over and over again. Don’t wait for the right person to come into your life.  Rather, be the right person to come to someone’s life. The one who is meant for you encourages you to be your best, but still loves and accepts you at your worst. Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option. Just because one person doesn’t seem to care for you, doesn’t mean you should forget about everyone else who does. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. It is okay to be angry.  It is never okay to be cruel. Never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset. Silence is often the loudest cry.  Pay attention to those you care about. We don’t always need advice.  Sometimes all we need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand.

If someone is telling you what to see, they are indoctri-nating you. You aren’t being taught to think, you are being told what to think. I don’t think that is very good way to teach.Curiosity is a powerful force. If you tell someone where to look, and let them observe, they are far more likely to become interested. If you tell them what they see, why would they bother to look? The curiosity is gone.In this way, the teachers are best who inspire you to want to learn. And not just from that teacher, but to continue to learn for the rest of your life. I was blessed with some of the very best teachers, and I still love to learn. How about you?Why is curiosity important?  The parable about curiosity and the cat aside (at least I presume none of you are cats), curiosity not only gets us into a lot of trouble, it helps us learn. Not only do we learn how to be curious and stay out of trouble (mostly), we learn the things which satisfy that particular curiosity.If we get good at it, we can satisfy our curiosity in a quick and efficient manner. Eventually, we understand a great deal of the things around us, and begin being curious about things which are completely different, or more complex. And we learn how to find answers and to satisfy our curiosity.Think about it for a moment. Why do you want to know something? What drives you to search the internet or dig through old reference books? What causes us to stare at the ceiling when we should be sleeping, with our minds racing on a topic? For me, at least, that common thread is my curiosity.Unanswered questions are one way curiosity manifests itself. As a kid, you mix two colors of paints, just because you don’t know what the result would be. As an adult, you look at the stars and consider other questions, to which we do not presently have answers. But it’s still curiosity, right?

If you saw the size of the blessing coming, you would understand the magnitude of the battle you are fighting.

Judgement By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/21/2020 Each one of us, throughout life, goes through moments, lives through experiences, and meets certain people that, inevitably, will leave a mark on us. Even those circumstances or people that we believe would pass through unnoticed seem to reappear in some way later in our lives. We spend our time trying to judge others out, and judging their behaviors, as if we did not have enough on our own minds already. Situations that we may find simple or easy to take on may not be so easy for someone else.Everyone has a certain set of experiences, feelings, emotions, encounters, of biological and personal variables that we have to add up to be able to understand the situation and context of their lives. If we found ourselves in someone else’s shoes, we would do different things. Judgment does not accomplish anything...
* * *

Everyone By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/20/2020 Everyone you meet has something to teach you.
* * *

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain..I learn that courage was not the absence of fear , but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Fear is not real. It is the product of thoughts you create. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."

Are you someone who has difficulty simply relaxing and doing nothing? When was the last time you took a nap or just had fun? Do you feel uncomfortable with silence? I am a guy who has lived most of my life constantly having something going on in my brain. I’m either thinking about the things I need to do, or I’m constantly listening to audiobooks where I’m gaining more insight and knowledge about various things. So I usually have something going on in my head, and I used to be one of these people who felt completely uncomfortable in silence. But now I cherish it! I’ve actually learned to crave silence. I learned that if I don’t give my brain enough space and allow my mind to settle down, I tend to reach periods where I plateau. However, when I actively create space in my life for rest, I gain so much more insight into my life and in my relationships. I become more creative and come up with new ways of conducting my business, or coming up with fresh ideas for books. So my message for you today is this: Rest is an intentional act of creation! Rest is not the absence of being busy, nor the absence of doing work. Rest is actually an active process. Rest is something that you DO. It is not something that you allow or something that happens to you. The definition of relax is “to make or become less tense or anxious.” Did you read that? “Relax” is an ACTION. It is an active process. I want to feel like I’m always in the process of growing and learning, and becoming more of who I was created to be. So what I had to do was to shift my mindset around this idea of rest and just relaxing. Relaxing is an extremely vital part of the becoming process. It is crutial to the growth process within me–and within you, too! Pay attention to your body. If you’ve plateaued on any level of your life, it could just be that you’re not taking time to simply relax. Our bodies and minds grow and become stronger when we rest. We must, indeed, create space in our lives for rest or relaxation or recreation. Resting is an ACTIVE CHOICE. So give yourself the gift of REST. Give yourself SPACE to be creative again.

Start Now By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/20/2020 The biggest risk is not taking any risk. Life is a series of calculated risks – nothing more. Don’t wait to get it “perfect”, just start now.

New Frontier  By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/19/2020 To live and grow, to have families, to become the family of man and woman, to help the less fortunate, to become a world of peace and abundance begins with self and ends with us all. We possess the humblest of powers yet the most powerful of powers when we express and give in service to all life, LOVE. For us to stay at the top of the bio diversity and biological forces we call life we can and must strive for a new frontier. Happiness can be achieved, and freedom will can be ones goal. Faith is no more than hope in action so faith must always be sought; not just faith in a creator but also in self. We will not produce a good crop for life by planting bad seeds. If we plant nothing at all we will always harvest nothing in return. And the new frontier is waiting for each of us with seeds that can only produce the best of harvest if we choose. Our future is not now, but our now is the foundation of our future. The future will be dynamic either as good or bad by the seeds planted today. And our new frontier is waiting for each of us to become a pioneer traveling to a better now.* * *

Things to Remember When Your Heart is Breaking....Don’t cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won’t let you see the stars.It’s a dull, subdued sensation, when your heart is breaking, like the muffled sound of a distant gunshot.  It doesn’t physically pierce your skin or tear you to pieces, but the sensation is physically present – the paralyzing discomfort of realizing that something you took for granted is leaving for good. Although it’s hard to accept at first, this is actually a good sign, having a broken heart.  It means you have loved something, you have tried for something, and you have let life teach you. Life will attempt to break you down sometimes; nothing and no one can completely protect you from this reality.  Remaining alone and hiding from the world won’t either, for endless, stagnant solitude will also break you with unhealthy nostalgia and yearning. You have to stand back up and put yourself out there again.  Your heart is stronger than you realize.  I’ve been there and I’ve seen heartbreak through to the other side.  It takes time and patience. Deep heartbreak is kind of like being lost in the woods – every direction leads to nowhere at first.  When you are standing in a forest of darkness, you cannot see any light that could ever lead you home.  But if you wait for the sun to rise again, and listen when someone assures you that they themselves have stood in that same dark place, and have since moved forward with their life, oftentimes this will bring the hope that’s needed. It’s so hard to give you advice when you’ve got a broken heart, but some words can heal, and this is my attempt to give you hope.  You are stronger than you know!Please remember… The genuine, loving emotion that breaks your heart is oftentimes the same emotion that will heal it, gradually, over time.The person you liked or loved in the past, who treated you like dirt repeatedly, has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you in the present moment, but more headaches and heartache.You can mull it over and obsess and obsess about how things turned out – what you did wrong or should have done differently – but there’s no point.  It will NOT change anything right now!Some chapters in our lives have to close without closure.  There’s no point in losing yourself by trying to hold on to what’s not meant to stay.Seven letters.  Two words.  One saying.  It can either cut you open to the core and leave you in horrific pain, or it can free your heart and soul and lift an incredible weight off your shoulders.  The saying is: It’s over!When you don’t get what you want, sometimes it’s necessary preparation, and other times it’s necessary protection.  But the time is never wasted.  It’s a step on your journey. Someday you’re going look back on this time in your life as such an important time of grieving and growing.  You will see that you were in mourning and your heart was breaking, but your life was changing.Transitions in life are the perfect opportunity to let go of one situation to embrace something even better coming your way.One of the hardest lessons to learn: You cannot change other people.  Every interaction, rejection and heartbreaking lesson is an opportunity to change yourself only.Be determined to be positive.  Understand that the greater part of your misery or unhappiness from this point forward is determined not by your circumstances, but by your attitude.Life and God both have greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or believing that you’re broken.It’s always better to be alone than to be in bad company.  And when you do decide to give someone a chance, do so because you’re truly better off with this person.  Don’t do it just for the sake of not being alone.When someone rejects you it doesn’t mean you need to also reject yourself or think of yourself as less worthy.  It doesn’t mean that nobody will ever want you anymore.  Remember that there are billions of people in the world and only ONE person has rejected you.  And it only hurts so bad right now because, to you, that one person’s opinion represented the opinion of the whole world.  But that’s not the truth.Sometimes it takes a broken heart to shake you awake and help you see that you are worth so much more than you were settling for. When you lose someone or something, don’t think of it as a loss, but as a gift that lightens your load so you can better travel the path meant for you.Anything that hurts you today only makes you stronger in the end.When all is said and done, grief is the price you pay for love.  And it’s better to have loved, lost and learned, than to have never loved at all.A broken heart is just the growing pains necessary so that you can love more completely when the real thing comes along.AfterthoughtsYou are human and the human heart breaks sometimes.  Don’t fight it – fight through it! Give yourself a chance to love again, to feel again, and to live again. You are alive and here to risk your heart by putting it into something you believe in, as many times as it takes.  If you avoid taking this chance, one thing is certain, you will make it safely to the end, feeling empty and unfulfilled. Don’t do that to yourself. You deserve better.

Opportunities to Grow By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/19/2020 Look at your problems as problems and they'll continue to hold you back. See them as opportunities to grow and that's what they truly become.
* * *

To every broken heart Where there's life there's hopeTo every beaten soul Where there's faith  There's peaceLife is a mixture of sunshine and rain  Laughter and tears  Joy and pain  Emotions are always there. Life is like a chess game  To win you have to make a move  Every move must have a purpose  Dare to take risks despite your fear  Dare to fail, fail to learn  And learn to win  You know, my dear  My life isn't a pearl  That always shines  I don't expect it to be easy  I refuse to be a victim. I don't wait for life to bring me flowers everyday .I create my own garden  And decorate my lifeI don't let my mind play tricks on me Some days are storms  Some days are diamondsAre there diamonds without storms?  Absolutely not!  God is my strength  Hope is my anchor  Courage is my bodyguard  My tears are my prayers  My philosophy in lifeAfter night comes day  After death comes lifeAutumn is the best proofNever let despair get to your heart Always let hope hold your hand  Through every stage of lifeTrust me dear, it's not the end  Everything will be fine  Please smile  And don't lose your fire
* * *

The moment you start thinking and pondering on thoughts that you're not good enough, you can't or you're afraid to experience and explore new and different things or opportunities 'YOU are allowing our mind to alter, control and manipulate your hearts desires and passions. IF you believe you CAN I encourage you all to pursue it wholeheartedly and allow yourself to learn from your actions, your consequences, your decisions, and your mistakes. PURSUE whatever scares you and 'it will allow you to learn how to overcome your challenges, difficulties, and obstacles and it will make you STRONGER'

Living for Each Other By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/19/2020 Nothing in nature lives for itself..rivers don't drink their own water..trees don't drink their own fruit..the sun does not shine for itself..a flowers fragrance is not for itself..living for each other is the rule of nature.
* * *

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
* * *

Just like the snowflake, they are never in similarity just like us humans.  Everyone is created different.  There are no two humans that have the same everything as in personality, ideas, thought, creativeness, athletic ability, communication skill, the list goes on but never will you find two people who cast the same pattern.   We were created as individuals so therefore you should be your own person, never try to be a replica of someone else.   Embrace your unique and special “you”

I’m walking into 2021 with a clear heart and clear mind if you owe me don’t worry about it- you’re welcome...If you’ve wronged me it’s all good.. lessons learnt...If you are angry with me you have won ..I have let it go...if you aren’t speaking to me it’s cool I still love you and I wish you well... if I have wronged you I really do apologise sincerely...Life is too short for anger and to bear grudges... make 2021 year forgiveness and positivity...Good evening everybody ️ Have a great weekend and stay ssfe
* * *

My joke for the day: I can only apologise, but it is Christmas. A Russian couple were walking in St. Petersburg, when the man felt a drop hit his nose. "I think it's raining," he said to his wife. "No, that felt more like snow to me," she replied. "No, I'm sure it was just rain, he said." Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing. Just then they saw a minor communist party official walking toward them. "Let's not fight about it," the man said, "let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's officially raining or snowing."As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, is it officially raining or snowing?" "It's raining, of course," he answered & walked on. But the woman insisted: "I know that felt like snow!" To which the man quietly replied:"Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

Honor Your Own Heart By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative] 12/17/2020 When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle, yet most of the audience still sleeps. If someone doesn't see your light, don't worry .. your actions speak for themselves .. Live authentically doing what you do, not to impress, but to honor your own heart and worth .. not for a recognition  Be your own beautiful spectacle.
* * *

Music is my life. The lyrics are my story.
* * *

The purpose of life is to believe, to hope, and to make it true.
* * *

All attitudes are contagious, is yours worth catching?
* * *

There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren't the way you had hoped they would be, ....that's when you have to tell yourself that things will get better. There are times when people disappoint you and let you down, but those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgments and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in yourself and all that you are capable of. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are, So when the days come that are filled with frustrationand unexpected responsibilities, remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be, because the challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you. Keep believing in yourself...
* * *

When we don't learn lessons at the right time, life will teach us the same lessons at the wrong time
* * *

Once you had the courage to face your problems, you are now ready to decide on the solution or the next action step. Remember, anger, worry or misery doesn’t change anything; it will only leave you with ill feelings. The circumstance will only change when you start to decide on the solution. •Move On! Once the problem is resolved, move on and let it go. Stop thinking about your problem over and over again. It will do nothing but gives you anxiety and stress. •Remember the Lessons Learned! You may be surprised but the truth is problems are actually good for you because it is a way for you to learn a lesson. However, if the lesson isn’t learned, there’s a huge possibility that the problem will occur again in the future. In every problem that arises in your life, strive to learn the lesson and carry them as you move forward in life. Remember, it’s better to carry the lessons learned rather than the grudges Never Lose Your Value as a Person! It is false to believe that problems are bad karma as a consequence of your past wrong doings. Remember, problem happens even to the most saintly people on earth. Never let problems become a measurement of your value as a person. You never lose your value because of problems. •Be Ready for Problems! The best way to become prepared and ready with problems is to accept that it is part of life. Accept problems as part of the imperfections that makes life more meaningful and worth living for. As they say, if there’s no pain, there’s no glory. The same is true that if there’s no problems and difficulty, there will be no happiness and bliss.
* * *

Sometime feel gratitude to the person who leaves us also, without him/her we can’t be so blessed. I’m very thankful to those who stood by me even when I didn’t deserve it. Those who walked away will miss out on the best of me.  You don’t know what you got until it’s gone.  Sometimes people try, come in & out of your life. Sometimes you have to close the door on a bad relationship.  I have to thank also to everybody that stood by me in my weakest moments. They also know they can count on me always. You have room in your heart for memories, that’s where you keep people you have loved.
* * *

Don’t lose hope because it’s hard. Don’t lose hope because you’re jobless. Don’t lose hope because you don’t have the support you need. Don’t lose hope because of criticisms. Remember that the enemy wouldn’t be attacking you if something very valuable wasn’t inside you. You’re blessed,You’re a fighter,You got purpose,You can make it,Just don’t give up.
* * *

There comes a time in your life when you finally get it ... When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out "ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on." And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes you begin to look at the world from a new perspective.
* * *

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.  True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you.  Breathe, stay calm, peaceful and tall and allow things to pass.
* * *

A phrase "WHATEVER YOU CAN DO" ... In asking how we may be of SERVICE, we discover that our GIFTS, talents and skills can be of benefit to people. Usually we assume that individuals in need of assistance will willingly approach those in a position to give it. The truth is that many people feel that self-reliance is a quality to be cultivated over all others. Most want a "hand-up" not a "hand-out." We remove that perceived stigma from petitions for aid, we provide others with an opportunity to give voice to their needs in a nonjudgmental forum!
* * *

A true warrior knows how to destroy, yet uses that knowledge to protect. They never seek revenge because baggage makes one heavy and clumsy. They know how to be fluid, centered so subtle they are invisible, so mysterious they are intangible, in order to control their rival's fate. There is always honor in defending the defenseless.
* * *

Millions of people need mentor-ship, they crave leadership, and they also need a "hand up" not a "hand out" and in being a person who is willing to be a mentor to a motivated individual who is seeking to better themselves means more to the underprivileged person at times, than anything money could ever buy. Those who cannot see this, lack leadership ability. Blessings to the 1000's out there that have been given a time limit on their days of life, it has taught me "things" do not matter and gratitude for just being alive and having a pulse.
* * *

Deal with your problems before they deal with your happiness.
* * *

“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace
* * *

A place for everything and everything in it's place. A time for everything and everything in it's time. A reason for everything and everything for a reason. The one who understands & respects all these three has learnt the secret to happiness!
* * *

WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOU HAVE NO NEED TO WALK IN ANYONE ELSE'S SHADOW BUT YOUR OWN. Stand up. Stand tall. Look at yourself. Love who you are. Believe in yourself. When you start each day with a confident attitude ...You can only invite positive experiences into your life.When you speak to yourself with love ...You can only invite positive influences into your life.When you are happy with who you are ...You can only invite positive people into your life.Choose to be an independent, free-thinking, strong-minded individual. When you know who you are, you know what you will allow into your life. When you love who you are, you will walk alone when you have to, and walk in company when you choose to. Victors, or people who win at life, understand that you do not need to imitate or emulate others, but be yourself. There is no need to walk in anyone else's shadow. Be Blessed!

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. It is quite a poem.. This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in aNew York Hospital. SLOW DANCEHave you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? You better slow down.Don't dance so fast.Time is short.The music won't last. Do you run through each day on the fly?When you ask, “How are you?”Do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,with the next hundred chores running through your head? You'd better slow downDon't dance so fast.Time is shortThe music won't last. Ever told your child, We'll do it tomorrow?And in your haste,Not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die Cause you never had time To call and say,'Hi' You'd better slow down.Don't dance so fast.Time is short.The music won't last.. When you run so fast to get somewhere,You miss half the fun of getting there. When you worry and hurry through your day,It is like an unopened gift....Thrown away. Life is not a race.Do take it slowerHear the musicBefore the song is over. This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. She'll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

I will leave such an imprint on your heart..That anyone you entertain after me..Will have to know me in order to understand you.

LIFE IS NOT ABOUT WHO'S REAL TO YOUR FACE ,  IT'S ABOUT WHO'S REAL BEHIND YOUR BACK ..
* * *

Most people just want to be in the result and not in the process, and it’s in the process where you realize who deserves to be in the result.
* * *

BE YOURSELF & FOCUS ON WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT. I have come to learn that the greatest accomplishment in this world is to be yourself in a world constantly trying to make you something you were not born to become. Lets accept that - Not all of us are to be the CEOs, Entrepreneurs etc. If you are a fish then don't spend your life trying to climb trees, you will never be great at it. Just keep swimming. The best thing to do is find what you are great at, your strengths and focus on claiming your destiny. Stop wasting time trying to make it where you are not supposed to be.
* * *

Most people are really nice to the people who can help them.  Weather it’s buttering them up or brown-nosing, there are a plethora of terms for being nice to those who CAN help you.  That, at some level, (in some way, shape or form) is almost expected in this day and age.But how do most people treat those who can do nothing to help them?  Some are indifferent, others are anywhere from haughty to hostile.  On TV, you often see the rich and powerful treat underlings, staff and hired help like dirt.  It is done that way to show you their character, as do most script writers, and they know you know, you know?Why is character important?Your character is central to your very being.  It is the set of rules by which you live your life.  It is how you make important decisions.  It is how you are known by other people.  Do you want to be known as a mean person or a kindly person?"A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another's."Character is like the foundation of a house; it's below the surface". "We each decide whether to make ourselves learned or ignorant, compassionate or cruel, generous or miserly. No one forces us. No one decides for us, no one drags us along one path or the other. We are responsible for what we are. "People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character. "No change of circumstances can repair a defect of character.

I chose to believe. I believe in the power of calling. i believe in honor and sacrifice, in courage through the danger and strength through the struggle. I believe in hope. I believe in the power of will, in justice, in a new day and in making a difference. I will never stop believing no matter what comes my way that I can make a difference in this world. Some may hate, while others might turn a blind eye and don't want to know. There will be burdens and risks. Loss of brothers and sisters and the challenge to keep going. No matter what confronts me, no matter what the danger, I will keep my faith, my hope and my courage. I am a defender and a peacekeeper. I can make a difference in this world for humanity.

Seven Resolutions By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/30/2020 1.  Begin. – Remember the feeling you get from taking the first step is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around thinking about it.  So get up and get moving.  Take the first step this year – just one small step forward.  The greatest miracle of your success will not be that you finished, it will be that you had the courage to begin. 2.  Work hard on the essential. – Don’t be busy, be productive.  Don’t track your time, track your results.  Put first things first and get them done.  And don’t expect your goal to be easy; it’s supposed to be hard.  If it wasn’t hard you would already have it completed, and so would everyone else.  The hard part is what makes it worthwhile.  In life there are no shortcuts to any place worth going. 3.  Stay true to your path. – A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.  You have to do what’s right for you; no one else walks in your shoes.  Keep moving forward, beyond the negative rhetoric echoing from the peanut gallery.  Do what you have to do, for you.  Live a life you are proud of.  And the moment you realize you’re not, find the strength to start over again on a new path. 4.  Nurture your self-confidence. – You have everything you need within you to become the best possible version of YOU.  Believe that you CAN.  Believe that you’re capable of pushing harder and farther than you have before.  Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, smart enough and strong enough to achieve your goals.  Don’t let false beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.  And certainly don’t get sidetracked by the people around you who are not on track. 5.  Be sincerely kind to those around you. – Kindness in words creates positivity.  Kindness in thinking creates confidence.  Kindness in giving creates love.  Through kindness you have the ability to make a profound difference in every life you touch, including your own.  When you guide someone who is lost and confused, when you hold someone who is sad and grieving, when you hug someone who has lost all their hope, you too will feel yourself healing and growing stronger.  Remember, the vast majority of positive changes come about in someone’s life simply because one other person cares for them, believes in them, and motivates them.  So be that other person when you can. 6.  Accept the things you can’t change. – What you resist, persists.  If you are resisting something, you are feeding it.  Any energy you actively fight, you are feeding.  If you are using negative energy to push something away, you are inviting it to stay. Choose to accept what is, be positive and proactive, let go of the need to control every tiny detail, and embrace peace in the process. 7.  Set a good example. – It’s not about what you say; it’s about how you live your life every day.  The people who look up to you are watching you all the time.  These people are like sponges – what they see or feel you do, they will imitate.  So remember that your words mean a lot less than what you’re doing.  Choose to believe that you can and will change lives with what you do each day, and you will.  Let your actions speak for themselves.* * *

Our JourneyBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/30/2020 Our Journey Together is so Short"* A beautiful message for all of us....Take a minute please  A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.  The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something. The young lady responded with a smile:  "It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop." This response deserves to be written in golden letters: *"It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short"* If each one of us realized that our time here is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy. Did someone break your heart? *Be calm, the journey is so short.* Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? *Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short.* Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that *our journey together is so short.* No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. *Our journey together is so short.* Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness.  If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness.  After all, *Our Journey Together is so Short!
* * *

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Life has many doors to be opened. Never waste your time on the wrong ones. Walk through them, if one refuses to open, it is not your door! No answer is also an answer~. In order for us to reach our full potential and fulfill our destiny, we have to go through:Rejections, heartbreaks, and disappointments. Yes, it hurts but!"You have to keep breaking your heart till it opens". Problems are the signs of life!"You do not need to fight them; you need to solve them". What happened, happened & could not have happened any other way!  Many people struggle to accept this fact therefore they suffer. We can't control what life has planned for us, but we always can control how we react. "Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is the true power". Lao Tzu Never lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems stressed & upset. Remember, things might not go as you planned, but they will always end up as they should. The moon taught me it's okay to go through phases. The sun taught me that no matter how many times I go down, keep on rising Wish you a great day & night.

Peace to OthersBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/28/2020 Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life.  When the paths are separated, return to the wholeness of yourself, give thanks for the foot print left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own.* * *
* * *

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never truly live if you are forever looking for the meaning of life
* * *

A house built on greed cannot long endure.
* * *

"Happiness can not be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."
* * *

People often succeed because they have fun in what they are doing. But they are always serious with their responsibilities. Go through life like a child - always full of curiosity, humility, simplicity and contentment. Never lose your sense of wonder.
* * *

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.Worst of all is when success-seekers hypnotize themselves into a toxic belief system—political, religious or commercial—for the sake of personal advancement.  As the author Upton Sinclair observed more than a hundred years ago, “It’s difficult to get a man to understand something if his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny, invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man’s pride.
* * *

Practicing gratitude is a wonderful way to make your life better. When you start being thankful you just see more and more of the good things instead of everything that is wrong in your life. I love it. I am so thankful just to be alive. It's amazing!!
* * *

There is only one place and time where you can live your life .. and that is sandwiched between yesterday and tomorrow.. Life keeps changing .. presenting us with new and wonderful views and opportunities .. and that is the beauty ..    keep your heart and eyes open to feel and see the beautiful in life        Only look back in gratitude .. always look forward in hope
* * *

My mission and purpose in life is not to prove that I am better than anyone else 'my mission and purpose is demonstrate through actions, examples and suggestions that whatever and everything that is CURRENT and NOW can be improved and always be improved.
* * *

You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.
* * *

Persevere!By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/25/2020 The greatest gift that you were ever given is your imagination. This gift belongs solely and ONLY to you and therefore, unlike in so many other areas of your life, no one can influence, impact or even infiltrate it. Your imagination is your very own realm that is absolutely capable of fulfilling your EVERY wish. You must BELIEVE by using your creative power and your goals must be in alignment with the greater good for your actions to meet success. Don't let yourself be distracted, or you may lose this power, BELIEVE in your vision and PERSEVERE!
* * *

Powerful King, Prince and JesterBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/25/2020 Nothing is as bad as it seems. SEE even the most dismal situations in a positive light, THEY CAN BE DONE AND OVERCOME. Consider your steps carefully. People of ability find their way and make progress even in difficult circumstances. Weak and strong forces (or people) can co-exist when the weaker element does not impose upon the stronger, when the weaker maintains good humor and avoids taking bold action. Sometimes one must get by with a little grace and good humor. After all, in the court of a powerful king, the jester often has more power than the prince.* * *
* * *

In life you’ll realize there is a purpose for everyone you meet.  Some will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you.  But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you. Keep people in your life who truly love you, motivate you, encourage you, enhance you, and make you happy.  If you know people who do none of these things, let them goToo often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring – all of which have the potential to turn a life around.   The most beautiful thing is to see a person you love smiling.  And even more beautiful is knowing that you are the reason behind it. Choose your relationships wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company. Being alone does not mean you are lonely, and being lonely does not meanyou are alone. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely. Love means giving someone the chance to hurt you, but trusting them not to. You know you’ve found true love when you catch yourself falling in love with the same person over and over again. Don’t wait for the right person to come into your life.  Rather, be the right person to come to someone’s life. The one who is meant for you encourages you to be your best, but still loves and accepts you at your worst. Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option. Just because one person doesn’t seem to care for you, doesn’t mean you should forget about everyone else who does. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. It is okay to be angry.  It is never okay to be cruel. Never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset. Silence is often the loudest cry.  Pay attention to those you care about. We don’t always need advice.  Sometimes all we need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand.

Lets_make a difference I'm happy todayNot because I just won in the stock marketOr nominated best poet on Facebook. Nothing special has happened to me.  I'm just happy to be alive  To get another chance .To improve myselfTo love people And help them to hope. Dear followers, there is always a reason to be HAPPYYour still alive, you can change your destinyMany others in the graves can't.You enjoy good healthToo many people are suffering in silenceYou never slept hungrySo many others don’t get enough foodYou have wonderful parentsMany others never knew their mom or dadJust count your infinite blessings  Say it loud!

If someone is telling you what to see, they are indoctri-nating you. You aren’t being taught to think, you are being told what to think. I don’t think that is very good way to teach.Curiosity is a powerful force. If you tell someone where to look, and let them observe, they are far more likely to become interested. If you tell them what they see, why would they bother to look? The curiosity is gone.In this way, the teachers are best who inspire you to want to learn. And not just from that teacher, but to continue to learn for the rest of your life. I was blessed with some of the very best teachers, and I still love to learn. How about you?Why is curiosity important?  The parable about curiosity and the cat aside (at least I presume none of you are cats), curiosity not only gets us into a lot of trouble, it helps us learn. Not only do we learn how to be curious and stay out of trouble (mostly), we learn the things which satisfy that particular curiosity.If we get good at it, we can satisfy our curiosity in a quick and efficient manner. Eventually, we understand a great deal of the things around us, and begin being curious about things which are completely different, or more complex. And we learn how to find answers and to satisfy our curiosity.Think about it for a moment. Why do you want to know something? What drives you to search the internet or dig through old reference books? What causes us to stare at the ceiling when we should be sleeping, with our minds racing on a topic? For me, at least, that common thread is my curiosity.Unanswered questions are one way curiosity manifests itself. As a kid, you mix two colors of paints, just because you don’t know what the result would be. As an adult, you look at the stars and consider other questions, to which we do not presently have answers. But it’s still curiosity, right?

If you saw the size of the blessing coming, you would understand the magnitude of the battle you are fighting.

There wouldn't be a sky full of stars if we were all meant to wish on the same one.

JudgementBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/21/2020 Each one of us, throughout life, goes through moments, lives through experiences, and meets certain people that, inevitably, will leave a mark on us. Even those circumstances or people that we believe would pass through unnoticed seem to reappear in some way later in our lives. We spend our time trying to judge others out, and judging their behaviors, as if we did not have enough on our own minds already. Situations that we may find simple or easy to take on may not be so easy for someone else.Everyone has a certain set of experiences, feelings, emotions, encounters, of biological and personal variables that we have to add up to be able to understand the situation and context of their lives. If we found ourselves in someone else’s shoes, we would do different things. Judgment does not accomplish anything...* * *
* * *

EveryoneBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/20/2020 Everyone you meet has something to teach you.
* * *

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain..I learn that courage was not the absence of fear , but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Fear is not real. It is the product of thoughts you create. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."

Are you someone who has difficulty simply relaxing and doing nothing? When was the last time you took a nap or just had fun? Do you feel uncomfortable with silence? I am a guy who has lived most of my life constantly having something going on in my brain. I’m either thinking about the things I need to do, or I’m constantly listening to audiobooks where I’m gaining more insight and knowledge about various things. So I usually have something going on in my head, and I used to be one of these people who felt completely uncomfortable in silence. But now I cherish it! I’ve actually learned to crave silence. I learned that if I don’t give my brain enough space and allow my mind to settle down, I tend to reach periods where I plateau. However, when I actively create space in my life for rest, I gain so much more insight into my life and in my relationships. I become more creative and come up with new ways of conducting my business, or coming up with fresh ideas for books. So my message for you today is this: Rest is an intentional act of creation! Rest is not the absence of being busy, nor the absence of doing work. Rest is actually an active process. Rest is something that you DO. It is not something that you allow or something that happens to you. The definition of relax is “to make or become less tense or anxious.” Did you read that? “Relax” is an ACTION. It is an active process. I want to feel like I’m always in the process of growing and learning, and becoming more of who I was created to be. So what I had to do was to shift my mindset around this idea of rest and just relaxing. Relaxing is an extremely vital part of the becoming process. It is crutial to the growth process within me–and within you, too! Pay attention to your body. If you’ve plateaued on any level of your life, it could just be that you’re not taking time to simply relax. Our bodies and minds grow and become stronger when we rest. We must, indeed, create space in our lives for rest or relaxation or recreation. Resting is an ACTIVE CHOICE. So give yourself the gift of REST. Give yourself SPACE to be creative again.

Start NowBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/20/2020 The biggest risk is not taking any risk. Life is a series of calculated risks – nothing more. Don’t wait to get it “perfect”, just start now.

New Frontier By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/19/2020 To live and grow, to have families, to become the family of man and woman, to help the less fortunate, to become a world of peace and abundance begins with self and ends with us all. We possess the humblest of powers yet the most powerful of powers when we express and give in service to all life, LOVE. For us to stay at the top of the bio diversity and biological forces we call life we can and must strive for a new frontier. Happiness can be achieved, and freedom will can be ones goal. Faith is no more than hope in action so faith must always be sought; not just faith in a creator but also in self. We will not produce a good crop for life by planting bad seeds. If we plant nothing at all we will always harvest nothing in return. And the new frontier is waiting for each of us with seeds that can only produce the best of harvest if we choose. Our future is not now, but our now is the foundation of our future. The future will be dynamic either as good or bad by the seeds planted today. And our new frontier is waiting for each of us to become a pioneer traveling to a better now.* * *

Things to Remember When Your Heart is Breaking....Don’t cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won’t let you see the stars.It’s a dull, subdued sensation, when your heart is breaking, like the muffled sound of a distant gunshot.  It doesn’t physically pierce your skin or tear you to pieces, but the sensation is physically present – the paralyzing discomfort of realizing that something you took for granted is leaving for good. Although it’s hard to accept at first, this is actually a good sign, having a broken heart.  It means you have loved something, you have tried for something, and you have let life teach you. Life will attempt to break you down sometimes; nothing and no one can completely protect you from this reality.  Remaining alone and hiding from the world won’t either, for endless, stagnant solitude will also break you with unhealthy nostalgia and yearning. You have to stand back up and put yourself out there again.  Your heart is stronger than you realize.  I’ve been there and I’ve seen heartbreak through to the other side.  It takes time and patience. Deep heartbreak is kind of like being lost in the woods – every direction leads to nowhere at first.  When you are standing in a forest of darkness, you cannot see any light that could ever lead you home.  But if you wait for the sun to rise again, and listen when someone assures you that they themselves have stood in that same dark place, and have since moved forward with their life, oftentimes this will bring the hope that’s needed. It’s so hard to give you advice when you’ve got a broken heart, but some words can heal, and this is my attempt to give you hope.  You are stronger than you know!Please remember… The genuine, loving emotion that breaks your heart is oftentimes the same emotion that will heal it, gradually, over time.The person you liked or loved in the past, who treated you like dirt repeatedly, has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you in the present moment, but more headaches and heartache.You can mull it over and obsess and obsess about how things turned out – what you did wrong or should have done differently – but there’s no point.  It will NOT change anything right now!Some chapters in our lives have to close without closure.  There’s no point in losing yourself by trying to hold on to what’s not meant to stay.Seven letters.  Two words.  One saying.  It can either cut you open to the core and leave you in horrific pain, or it can free your heart and soul and lift an incredible weight off your shoulders.  The saying is: It’s over!When you don’t get what you want, sometimes it’s necessary preparation, and other times it’s necessary protection.  But the time is never wasted.  It’s a step on your journey. Someday you’re going look back on this time in your life as such an important time of grieving and growing.  You will see that you were in mourning and your heart was breaking, but your life was changing.Transitions in life are the perfect opportunity to let go of one situation to embrace something even better coming your way.One of the hardest lessons to learn: You cannot change other people.  Every interaction, rejection and heartbreaking lesson is an opportunity to change yourself only.Be determined to be positive.  Understand that the greater part of your misery or unhappiness from this point forward is determined not by your circumstances, but by your attitude.Life and God both have greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or believing that you’re broken.It’s always better to be alone than to be in bad company.  And when you do decide to give someone a chance, do so because you’re truly better off with this person.  Don’t do it just for the sake of not being alone.When someone rejects you it doesn’t mean you need to also reject yourself or think of yourself as less worthy.  It doesn’t mean that nobody will ever want you anymore.  Remember that there are billions of people in the world and only ONE person has rejected you.  And it only hurts so bad right now because, to you, that one person’s opinion represented the opinion of the whole world.  But that’s not the truth.Sometimes it takes a broken heart to shake you awake and help you see that you are worth so much more than you were settling for. When you lose someone or something, don’t think of it as a loss, but as a gift that lightens your load so you can better travel the path meant for you.Anything that hurts you today only makes you stronger in the end.When all is said and done, grief is the price you pay for love.  And it’s better to have loved, lost and learned, than to have never loved at all.A broken heart is just the growing pains necessary so that you can love more completely when the real thing comes along.AfterthoughtsYou are human and the human heart breaks sometimes.  Don’t fight it – fight through it! Give yourself a chance to love again, to feel again, and to live again. You are alive and here to risk your heart by putting it into something you believe in, as many times as it takes.  If you avoid taking this chance, one thing is certain, you will make it safely to the end, feeling empty and unfulfilled. Don’t do that to yourself. You deserve better.

Opportunities to GrowBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/19/2020 Look at your problems as problems and they'll continue to hold you back. See them as opportunities to grow and that's what they truly become.
* * *

To every broken heart Where there's life there's hopeTo every beaten soul Where there's faith  There's peaceLife is a mixture of sunshine and rain  Laughter and tears  Joy and pain  Emotions are always there. Life is like a chess game  To win you have to make a move  Every move must have a purpose  Dare to take risks despite your fear  Dare to fail, fail to learn  And learn to win  You know, my dear  My life isn't a pearl  That always shines  I don't expect it to be easy  I refuse to be a victim. I don't wait for life to bring me flowers everyday .I create my own garden  And decorate my lifeI don't let my mind play tricks on me Some days are storms  Some days are diamondsAre there diamonds without storms?  Absolutely not!  God is my strength  Hope is my anchor  Courage is my bodyguard  My tears are my prayers  My philosophy in lifeAfter night comes day  After death comes lifeAutumn is the best proofNever let despair get to your heart Always let hope hold your hand  Through every stage of lifeTrust me dear, it's not the end  Everything will be fine  Please smile  And don't lose your fire
* * *

The moment you start thinking and pondering on thoughts that you're not good enough, you can't or you're afraid to experience and explore new and different things or opportunities 'YOU are allowing our mind to alter, control and manipulate your hearts desires and passions. IF you believe you CAN I encourage you all to pursue it wholeheartedly and allow yourself to learn from your actions, your consequences, your decisions, and your mistakes. PURSUE whatever scares you and 'it will allow you to learn how to overcome your challenges, difficulties, and obstacles and it will make you STRONGER'

Living for Each OtherBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/19/2020 Nothing in nature lives for itself..rivers don't drink their own water..trees don't drink their own fruit..the sun does not shine for itself..a flowers fragrance is not for itself..living for each other is the rule of nature.
* * *

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
* * *

Just like the snowflake, they are never in similarity just like us humans.  Everyone is created different.  There are no two humans that have the same everything as in personality, ideas, thought, creativeness, athletic ability, communication skill, the list goes on but never will you find two people who cast the same pattern.   We were created as individuals so therefore you should be your own person, never try to be a replica of someone else.   Embrace your unique and special “you”

I’m walking into 2021 with a clear heart and clear mind if you owe me don’t worry about it- you’re welcome...If you’ve wronged me it’s all good.. lessons learnt...If you are angry with me you have won ..I have let it go...if you aren’t speaking to me it’s cool I still love you and I wish you well... if I have wronged you I really do apologise sincerely...Life is too short for anger and to bear grudges... make 2021 year forgiveness and positivity...Good evening everybody ️ Have a great weekend and stay ssfe

My joke for the day: I can only apologise, but it is Christmas. A Russian couple were walking in St. Petersburg, when the man felt a drop hit his nose. "I think it's raining," he said to his wife. "No, that felt more like snow to me," she replied. "No, I'm sure it was just rain, he said." Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing. Just then they saw a minor communist party official walking toward them. "Let's not fight about it," the man said, "let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's officially raining or snowing."As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, is it officially raining or snowing?" "It's raining, of course," he answered & walked on. But the woman insisted: "I know that felt like snow!" To which the man quietly replied:"Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

Honor Your Own HeartBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/17/2020 When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle, yet most of the audience still sleeps. If someone doesn't see your light, don't worry .. your actions speak for themselves .. Live authentically doing what you do, not to impress, but to honor your own heart and worth .. not for a recognition  Be your own beautiful spectacle.
* * *

Music is my life. The lyrics are my story.
* * *

The purpose of life is to believe, to hope, and to make it true.
* * *

All attitudes are contagious, is yours worth catching?
* * *

There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren't the way you had hoped they would be, ....that's when you have to tell yourself that things will get better. There are times when people disappoint you and let you down, but those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgments and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in yourself and all that you are capable of. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are, So when the days come that are filled with frustrationand unexpected responsibilities, remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be, because the challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you. Keep believing in yourself...
* * *

When we don't learn lessons at the right time, life will teach us the same lessons at the wrong time
* * *

Once you had the courage to face your problems, you are now ready to decide on the solution or the next action step. Remember, anger, worry or misery doesn’t change anything; it will only leave you with ill feelings. The circumstance will only change when you start to decide on the solution. •Move On! Once the problem is resolved, move on and let it go. Stop thinking about your problem over and over again. It will do nothing but gives you anxiety and stress. •Remember the Lessons Learned! You may be surprised but the truth is problems are actually good for you because it is a way for you to learn a lesson. However, if the lesson isn’t learned, there’s a huge possibility that the problem will occur again in the future. In every problem that arises in your life, strive to learn the lesson and carry them as you move forward in life. Remember, it’s better to carry the lessons learned rather than the grudges Never Lose Your Value as a Person! It is false to believe that problems are bad karma as a consequence of your past wrong doings. Remember, problem happens even to the most saintly people on earth. Never let problems become a measurement of your value as a person. You never lose your value because of problems. •Be Ready for Problems! The best way to become prepared and ready with problems is to accept that it is part of life. Accept problems as part of the imperfections that makes life more meaningful and worth living for. As they say, if there’s no pain, there’s no glory. The same is true that if there’s no problems and difficulty, there will be no happiness and bliss.

Sometime feel gratitude to the person who leaves us also, without him/her we can’t be so blessed. I’m very thankful to those who stood by me even when I didn’t deserve it. Those who walked away will miss out on the best of me.  You don’t know what you got until it’s gone.  Sometimes people try, come in & out of your life. Sometimes you have to close the door on a bad relationship.  I have to thank also to everybody that stood by me in my weakest moments. They also know they can count on me always. You have room in your heart for memories, that’s where you keep people you have loved.
* * *

Don’t lose hope because it’s hard. Don’t lose hope because you’re jobless. Don’t lose hope because you don’t have the support you need. Don’t lose hope because of criticisms. Remember that the enemy wouldn’t be attacking you if something very valuable wasn’t inside you. You’re blessed,You’re a fighter,You got purpose,You can make it,Just don’t give up.
* * *

There comes a time in your life when you finally get it ... When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out "ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on." And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes you begin to look at the world from a new perspective.
* * *

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.  True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you.  Breathe, stay calm, peaceful and tall and allow things to pass.

A phrase "WHATEVER YOU CAN DO" ... In asking how we may be of SERVICE, we discover that our GIFTS, talents and skills can be of benefit to people. Usually we assume that individuals in need of assistance will willingly approach those in a position to give it. The truth is that many people feel that self-reliance is a quality to be cultivated over all others. Most want a "hand-up" not a "hand-out." We remove that perceived stigma from petitions for aid, we provide others with an opportunity to give voice to their needs in a nonjudgmental forum!
* * *

A true warrior knows how to destroy, yet uses that knowledge to protect. They never seek revenge because baggage makes one heavy and clumsy. They know how to be fluid, centered so subtle they are invisible, so mysterious they are intangible, in order to control their rival's fate. There is always honor in defending the defenseless.
* * *

Millions of people need mentor-ship, they crave leadership, and they also need a "hand up" not a "hand out" and in being a person who is willing to be a mentor to a motivated individual who is seeking to better themselves means more to the underprivileged person at times, than anything money could ever buy. Those who cannot see this, lack leadership ability. Blessings to the 1000's out there that have been given a time limit on their days of life, it has taught me "things" do not matter and gratitude for just being alive and having a pulse.

Deal with your problems before they deal with your happiness.

“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace
* * *

A place for everything and everything in it's place. A time for everything and everything in it's time. A reason for everything and everything for a reason. The one who understands & respects all these three has learnt the secret to happiness!
* * *

WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOU HAVE NO NEED TO WALK IN ANYONE ELSE'S SHADOW BUT YOUR OWN. Stand up. Stand tall. Look at yourself. Love who you are. Believe in yourself. When you start each day with a confident attitude ...You can only invite positive experiences into your life.When you speak to yourself with love ...You can only invite positive influences into your life.When you are happy with who you are ...You can only invite positive people into your life.Choose to be an independent, free-thinking, strong-minded individual. When you know who you are, you know what you will allow into your life. When you love who you are, you will walk alone when you have to, and walk in company when you choose to. Victors, or people who win at life, understand that you do not need to imitate or emulate others, but be yourself. There is no need to walk in anyone else's shadow. Be Blessed!

Where there's life there's hopeTo every beaten soul Where there's faith there's peaceLife is a mixture of sunshine and rain, laughter and tears, joy and pain  Emotions are always there  Life is like a chess game to win you have to make a move. Every move must have a purpose  Dare to take risks despite your fear  Dare to fail, fail to learn  And learn to win  You know, my dear my life isn't a pearl that always shines. I don't expect it to be easy .I refuse to be a victim. I don't wait for life to bring me flowers everyday.  I create my own garden and decorate my life.I don't let my mind play tricks on me, some days are storms, some days are diamonds.Are there diamonds without storms? Absolutely not!  God is my strength  Hope is my anchor  Courage is my bodyguard.  My tears are my prayers, my philosophy in lifeAfter night comes day  After death comes life.Autumn is the best proof..Never let despair get to your heart Always let hope hold your hand  Through every stage of life..Trust me, it's not the end  Everything will be fine  Please smile  And don't lose your fire

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. It is quite a poem.. This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in aNew York Hospital. SLOW DANCEHave you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? You better slow down.Don't dance so fast.Time is short.The music won't last. Do you run through each day on the fly?When you ask, “How are you?”Do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,with the next hundred chores running through your head? You'd better slow downDon't dance so fast.Time is shortThe music won't last. Ever told your child, We'll do it tomorrow?And in your haste,Not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die Cause you never had time To call and say,'Hi' You'd better slow down.Don't dance so fast.Time is short.The music won't last.. When you run so fast to get somewhere,You miss half the fun of getting there. When you worry and hurry through your day,It is like an unopened gift....Thrown away. Life is not a race.Do take it slowerHear the musicBefore the song is over. This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. She'll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

I will leave such an imprint on your heart..That anyone you entertain after me..Will have to know me in order to understand you.

LIFE IS NOT ABOUT WHO'S REAL TO YOUR FACE ,  IT'S ABOUT WHO'S REAL BEHIND YOUR BACK ..

Most people just want to be in the result and not in the process, and it’s in the process where you realize who deserves to be in the result.
* * *

BE YOURSELF & FOCUS ON WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT. I have come to learn that the greatest accomplishment in this world is to be yourself in a world constantly trying to make you something you were not born to become. Lets accept that - Not all of us are to be the CEOs, Entrepreneurs etc. If you are a fish then don't spend your life trying to climb trees, you will never be great at it. Just keep swimming. The best thing to do is find what you are great at, your strengths and focus on claiming your destiny. Stop wasting time trying to make it where you are not supposed to be.

Most people are really nice to the people who can help them.  Weather it’s buttering them up or brown-nosing, there are a plethora of terms for being nice to those who CAN help you.  That, at some level, (in some way, shape or form) is almost expected in this day and age.But how do most people treat those who can do nothing to help them?  Some are indifferent, others are anywhere from haughty to hostile.  On TV, you often see the rich and powerful treat underlings, staff and hired help like dirt.  It is done that way to show you their character, as do most script writers, and they know you know, you know?Why is character important?Your character is central to your very being.  It is the set of rules by which you live your life.  It is how you make important decisions.  It is how you are known by other people.  Do you want to be known as a mean person or a kindly person?"A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another's."Character is like the foundation of a house; it's below the surface". "We each decide whether to make ourselves learned or ignorant, compassionate or cruel, generous or miserly. No one forces us. No one decides for us, no one drags us along one path or the other. We are responsible for what we are. "People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character. "No change of circumstances can repair a defect of character.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people;  before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all his children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.  In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give
* * *

Don't let anyone EVER break your soul! You have to stand on your OWN two feet and stand up for yourself. There are those that would give anything to see your failure and you must NEVER give them the satisfaction. Do not believe for a minute you must explain yourself, or prove yourself, to anyone. They do not know what storms you've been asked to walk through in this lifetime. They do not know your life purpose. Sometimes you must go through situations just to TEACH OTHERS A LESSON. Keep your chin up and your head higher. SMILE and always ALWAYS stand your ground!

Everybody Can Help SomebodyBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]12/6/2020 "I applied for a job as a dishwasher. The restaurant owner said she already has a dishwasher, but made a few phone calls to other restaurants, and found one that needed a dishwasher. She recommended me there, and I got my first job ! That job paid for my family food and rent while I was getting my degree at a university and before I started embarking on my career. 35 years later I still remember that nice woman Ellen, and her restaurant. 1) nobody is too busy to help, it is just a matter of priorities 2) some people help you in their free time, others free their time to help you - big difference 3) NOBODY can help EVERYBODY, but EVERYBODY can help SOMEBODY."* * *

Live authentically. Be the best version of yourself. Every day is a new day. This day may be harder than the last, or in comparison to yesterday, it may seem like the greatest day of your life. Life is hard, but even if every single day you feel like you're just barely making it, forward is forward, and you will get through this at your own pace. When facing challenges in your life it may feel like you are not going anywhere because you aren't making great leaps and bounds. Thankfully, your speed doesn't matter forward is forward. Never look back, this is what people always tell you. As long as you are looking in a new direction, then you will achieve different results. Make sure that you are always going to new paths, and learning from the things in your life and you will have a better future. You also want to make sure that you don't get caught up on the progress that you create. It isn't about how far you move forward as long as you are moving. Any progress is good progress, and change is the opposite of stagnation. Make sure that you recognize the small victories in life instead of focusing on how far you have moved. Every major life change begins with a small step, and by the time you look back you will see just how far you have come.
* * *

Always keep in mind that the skin wrinkles,the hair turns white, the days turn into years ...But the important thing does not change,Your strength and conviction have no age. Your spirit is the duster of any spider web.Behind each finish line, there is a starting line.Behind every achievement, there is another challenge.While you are alive, feel aliveIf you miss what you did, do it again.Do not live on yellow photos ... Go on, even though everyone waits for you to leave.Do not let the iron in you oxidize.Make them, instead of pity, respect you.When you can not run for years, jog.When you can not jog, walk.When you can not walk, use cane.But never stop!

Knowledge is free but you pay for your ignorance

A central truth of life is that we always find what we look for, so if we look for things we appreciate and for things we’re grateful for, we’re likely to find more of this good stuff.To become grateful, we must learn that we can handle disappointment and delayed gratification with grace and perseverance.The experience of frustration and disappointment is irreplaceable in the development of a grateful ear.““Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.

Accept Who You AreBy CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]11/29/2020 Your happiness depends on you. Every single person is responsible for their own happiness, and you yourself are responsible for your own. Never rely on someone else for your happiness. Always remember that your happiness depends on you. “Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different."* * *

IN  LIFE⛹🏿‍♀️ ️🔴Time is like river. You can’t touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.. 🔴Don’t let someone become a priority in your life, when you, you are just an option in their life. Everything work best when they are balanced… 🔴Never explain yourself to anyone. Because the person who likes you, doesn’t need it and the person who doesn’t like you won’t believe it… 🔴When you keep saying you are busy, then you are never free. When you keep saying you have no time, then you will never have time. When you keep saying that you will do it tomorrow, then your tomorrow will never come… 🔴When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams. Choice is yours.  🔴We make those who care for us cry.We cry for those who never care for us. And we care for those who will never cry for us. This is the truth of life, it’s strange but true. Once you realize this, it’s never too late to change… 🔴Don’t make promises when you are in joy. Don’t reply when you are sad.Don’t take decision when you are angry. Think twice, act once.

Sometimes, You put your heart and soul into helping someone to “see”. You might end up drained off in the process, mentally exhausted, and it’s all your fault for not realizing sooner that certain people aren’t ready to “see”. People cannot be helped to receive a message if they aren’t ready to. We are progressing each in our own time. And if we wait and put our lives on hold to give others time to understand (which might never happen), we miss out on accomplishing our own dreams and living our own life. It is not fair to do this to ourselves. We must love ourselves enough to understand when it’s time to let go, to give up on enlightening souls who aren’t ready to receive the light. We come into this world alone, and however strangely this may sound, we live alone even then when we are surrounded by friends and family, and we leave alone when our time has come to and end, to continue our spiritual journey in another Universe governed by laws we are yet to learn.
* * *

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

30 Things We Forget To Say “Thank You” For Most of us have incredible family members, friends, and other loved ones who love us back.  Learn to appreciate what a miracle that is.  Most of us have good health, which is another miracle.  Most of us have eyes, with which to enjoy the amazing miracles of sunsets and nature and beauty all around us.  Most of us have ears, with which to enjoy music – one of the greatest miracles ever.We may not have all these things, because we can’t have everything, but we certainly have plenty to be thankful for.  To an extent, we know this already, and yet we forget.In other words, we forget to give thanks continuously, for all things.  Since every step we have taken has led us right to where we are, and all things have contributed to our development, when we finally do pause to give thanks, we try to include ALL things in our gratitude. So that’s what I want to reflect on today – some quick reminders about the things you, too, likely forget to say “thank you” for: “Thank you for life’s surprises.” – Notice and cherish life’s surprises.  Just because it’s not what you were expecting, doesn’t mean it’s not everything you’ve been waiting for.  So take a deep breath when you’re rejected from something good.  It often means you’re being redirected to something better.  Be patient.  Be positive.  Keep going.“Thank you for the truth I deal with every day.” – Too many of us prefer gentle lies to hard truths.  But make no mistake, in the end it’s better to be hurt by the truth than comforted by a lie.  And beware of half-truths too – you may have gotten ahold of the wrong half.  Open your eyes.  You must see things how they are instead of how you hoped, wished or expected them to be.  Sometimes it’s hard to accept the truth when the lies were exactly what you wanted to know, but be strong.  Life is too short to live a lie.“Thank you for the tough times that taught me important lessons.” – God allows you to experience the low points of life in order to teach you lessons that you could learn no other way.“Thank you for the challenges I must overcome today.” – The brick walls in life are there for a reason.  They are not there to keep you out.  They are there to give you a chance to show how badly you want something.  Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it as badly as you do.  They are there to stop the other people.  There is absolutely nothing about your present circumstances that prevents you from making progress, one step at a time. “Thank you for giving me the courage to continue.” – Courage isn’t having the strength to go on; it’s going on even when you don’t have strength.  And remember, it does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.“Thank you for giving me the strength to smile.” – Anyone can be happy sometimes.  It takes a human being with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that naturally makes us weep.“Thank you for the beauty that remains.” – Even when times are really tough, don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.“Thank you for this new beginning I’m living now.” – The best way to prepare for the future is to take care of the present.  Goodbyes will always hurt a little.  Photographs can never replace the act of being there.  Memories, good and bad, will sometimes bring tears.  And words can never perfectly describe the feelings they represent.  But that’s OK.  Pain is real.  But so is hope.  You have to make peace with your past in order to keep your present and future from becoming hopeless battles.“Thank you for all the choices I have.” – A big part of your life is a result of the little choices you make every day.  If you don’t like some part of your life, it’s time to start tweaking things and making better choices, right now, right where you are. “Thank you for the chance to grow.” – You must be willing to give up what you are in order to become what you will be.“Thank you for my bravery.” – Whenever you’re scared but you still do it anyway, that’s brave.“Thank you for my inner greatness.” – Contrary to what others may say, you do not need to rise to the top, or be the cream of the crop, before you can feel great about yourself.  For you are not a failure because you’re not perfect, got rejected or laid off, struggle to make ends meet, or have a family with issues.  You are great because, despite your circumstances, you keep loving, you keep getting back up after every fall, and, above all, the little steps you keep taking, you take with grace.“Thank you for the burning desires inside me.” – The starting point of all success is DESIRE.  Keep this in mind always.  Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire creates a small amount of heat.  Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.  When you truly believe in what you’re doing, it shows, and it pays.  Success in life is for those who are excited about where they’re going.“Thank you for my intuition and instincts.” – Take constructive criticism seriously, but not personally.  Listen, and then operate with your own intuition and wisdom as your guide.“Thank you for my imagination and creativity.” – Imagination and creativity are everything.  Together, they draw the preview of your life’s coming attractions.  And there are people in nearly every career field who make each day a work of art simply by the way they have mastered their craft.  In other words, almost everyone is an artist in some way.“Thank you for the excitement and freedom of my vulnerability.” – Being vulnerable is helpful to both ourselves and others.  It makes us bigger in the world – the more open we are, the more there is of us out there.  So open up.  Allow yourself to feel, to be real and authentic.  Tear down any emotional brick walls you have built around yourself and feel every exquisite emotion, both good and bad.  This is life.  This is how you welcome new opportunities.“Thank you for my feelings and emotions.” – The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt only with the heart.“Thank you for giving me a voice.” – Remember, not being heard is no reason for silence.“Thank you for everyone I’ve ever met.” – We are a part of all that we have met.  And everyone you meet can teach you something important.  Some people bless us and some teach us.  All are necessary.  In fact, the people who are the most difficult to deal with can be your most valuable teachers in the long run, which is ultimately a blessing.“Thank you to everyone for being who they are.” – If you judge people, you have no time to appreciate them.  So pay close attention, and respect people for who they are and not for who you want them to be.  Loving and respecting others means allowing them to be themselves, whether you choose to be a part of their life or not.“Thank you for giving me the ability to love.” – Only those of us who are capable of loving deeply can also suffer deep sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract our grief and heals us. “Thank you for giving me someone to love.” – The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.  To love and win is the best thing in the world.  To love and lose, is the next best.“Thank you for giving me the sense to love myself too.” – Remember, putting yourself first does not mean being selfish – it means being self-aware.  It means not forgetting to love yourself, too.“Thank you for the solitude and space I need.” – Remember, it’s healthy to spend time alone sometimes.  You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.“Thank you for the incredible people who have stood beside me.” – Know that it’s less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.  And remember, it’s during the toughest times of your life that you’ll get to see the true colors of the people who say they care about you.  Don’t take these people for granted.  Look around and appreciate them, today.“Thank you for the power to give back and make a difference.” – The fact that you can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, is proof that YOU can make a big difference.“Thank you for life’s luxuries.” – You didn’t go to sleep hungry last night.  You awoke this morning with a roof over your head.  You had a choice of what clothes to wear.  You have access to clean drinking water and electricity.  You are online right now.  You have plenty to be comfortable.  Being wealthy is a mindset.  Want less and appreciate more.“Thank you for my home.” – A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul.  But a home isn’t always a physical structure, or a specific location on a map.  Home is wherever the people you love are, whenever you’re with them.  It’s not a defined place, but a space in your heart and mind that builds upon itself like little bricks being stacked to create something stable that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go.“Thank you for my health.” – You may not be perfectly healthy, but if you’re reading this, you’re likely reasonably healthy.  In other words, if you got sick today you could recover.  Never underestimate the gift of your health.  It’s the greatest wealth you will ever own.  It’s the foundation for every chance at happiness and success life has to offer.  Your body is the only place you will truly ever live.“And finally, thank you for giving me the ability to be online reading this.” – Not only are you wealthy enough to be online right now, but you can read too.  Believe it or not, only about one third of the world’s population has internet access.  And, even crazier than that, there are roughly 774 million people in the world who aren’t educated enough to read.  YOU are one of the lucky ones.Your turn…What would you add to the list? What do you sometimes forget to say “thank you” for?

None of us will live forever. There is a finite amount of time we spend on this earth, and all that matters at the end of the journey is how we spent that time. Did we do the things we loved, with the people we cherished? Or did we pursue someone else’s agenda, neglecting our own potential and promise? “UNTIL YOU VALUE YOURSELF, YOU WON’T VALUE YOUR TIME. UNTIL YOU VALUE YOUR TIME, YOU WON’T DO ANYTHING WITH ITHow right this is. Life is a wild and short adventure – too short to spend following someone else’s dreams. We need to make the time to find out what’s important to us. We need to take the first steps closer towards what we want to become. We need to spend our time wisely, realizing the present moment is all we have. And we need to value the time of others, just as we value our own. What do you love to do? And are you closer to doing it today than you were yesterday? If not, it could be the perfect time to reanalyze how you’re spending your life, and make the change for the better.

It takes time to know other people and find out if they are trustworthy or not. You can learn about other people by spending time with them and paying attention to their behavior. This is one of the best ways to determine if someone is trustworthy. If you are a trustworthy person, it will be easier for you to recognize another person like you. Assuming things about people will not give you an accurate description of how trustworthy they are. Neither are first impressions a good indicator of trustworthiness. More so, the trustworthiness of a person cannot be based on your emotions. Fortunately, there are character traits that you can observe and analyze in people to help you determine if they are worthy of your trust or not. Trustworthy people make the world a better place to live in. To live more happily and successfully, you need trustworthy people in your life and you also need to be a trustworthy person. Building and keeping trustworthy relationships is a reciprocal and ongoing effort, it is a lifestyle that you choose to embrace or not.  To identify a trustworthy person, watch out for these seven key traits: 1 - Trustworthy people are respectful. Trustworthy people respect themselves and others. They believe that respect is to be given to every human being; they don't resource to intimidation or humiliation tactics. Trustworthy people possess good manners and strong values. "Respect leads to trust." 2 - Trustworthy people are honest. Trustworthy people respectfully disagree with others when necessary. They acknowledge their strengths and their weaknesses, they don't pretend to know it all. Trustworthy people speak confidently. "Honesty walks along with trust." 3 -Trustworthy people are consistent. Trustworthy people are in alignment with their words and their actions. They are the same at work, at home and everywhere else; they don't pretend to be someone else. Trustworthy people are considerate of others. "Consistency reinforces trust." 4- Trustworthy people are caring. Trustworthy people show genuine interest in others. They know the importance of nourishing their relationships; they refuse to participate in gossip and any negative talk. Trustworthy people value people's time and efforts. "Caring for others builds trust." 5 - Trustworthy people are grateful. Trustworthy people appreciate the trust others place in them. They are supporting and encouraging of their family, friends, and co-workers; they don't take things for granted. Trustworthy people express gratitude to others. "Gratitude is an expression of trust." 6 - Trustworthy people are positive. Trustworthy people are a good influence in the life of others. They speak positively and inspire others to be more and accomplish more; they don't expect anything in return. Trustworthy people cherish the good in others. "Positive actions plant seeds of trust." 7 - Trustworthy people are selfless. Trustworthy people make others feel better about themselves. They see the potential in others and help them develop their talents; they don't focus on people's limitations. Trustworthy people thrive on preparing others to succeed. "Selflessness is an act of trust." Your turn: Which trait stands out more to you and why? What other trait do you consistently see in trustworthy people?

The most beautiful people you will ever meet aren't always the ones who catch your eye first .. they are the ones you could talk with for hours and still have a million questions .. people who have hearts so lovely and special you can't help but fall in love with them .. possessing the kind of beauty and truth that makes life more beautiful for others .. In a world where the outside can be emphasized, don't lose sight of beauty beyond the surface .. one beautiful heart is better than a thousand beautiful faces          Beauty and truth are a light in the heart  Art is not simply works of art; it is the spirit that knows beauty, that has music in its soul & the color of sunsets in its handkerchief, that can dance on a flaming world & make the world dance too'..

When asked the secret of your success, simply say 'I get up when I fall down'

A Note To All The People Who Claimed Throughout My Career That I Would Never Amount To Anything: When you treat certain people like dirt and suppress their innovative & strategic business minds they tend to go away and conceive an award winning inspirational mind blowing strategy for annihilating all enemies on the chess board! Just to let you know "I Did It And It Worked
* * *

Surround yourself with people who make you happy, who inspire you to be a better person and who make you smile. People who help you up when you’re down. People who always want the best for you without any expectations attached. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is teachers passing through.

H.O.P.E...hold on, pain ends

The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.
* * *

A beautiful thing is precious no matter the price. Those who do not know how to see precious things because they are focused on themselves, will never be happy. Everyone has problems and flaws~we are HUMAN. When we entertain the illusion that people should be perfect and judge them accordingly, we don’t allow them room to BE human, so any error in judgment or act in contradiction to our idea of perfection, we become disillusioned. Once we recognize that every individual is a treasury of hidden and unsuspected qualities, our lives become richer, our judgment better~our world is more right. It is not love that is blind, it is only the unnoticed eye that cannot see the real qualities of people
* * *

Eventually you will overcome the heartache, and forget the reasons who caused the pain. Eventually you will realize that the secret to happiness and freedom is not about control or revenge, but in letting things unfold naturally, and learning from your priceless experiences over the course of time. After all, what matters most is not the first, but the final chapter of your life, which unveils the details of how well you wrote your story.

Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I'm not perfect and I don't live to be but before you start pointing fingers make sure you hands are clean! ~Love is like a Rubix Cube, there are countless numbers of wrong twists and turns, but when you get it right, it looks perfect no matter what way you look at it.

Peace does not rest in the charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper, let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace in the hearts and minds of all of our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings.

One who realizes, knows, shows and accepts KINDNESS and LOVE will be more worthy than any material possession or dollar amount! As it is said, "there is no greater loan than an ear" and kindness always has the best interest rates! To cultivate kindness is an extremely valuable part of the business life as well. Make sure when YOUR value increases, that you don't allow others to short-change you, REALIZE your worth and increase your interest if you must, for those who DESERVE your "limited edition-self," and forgive all those who don't see your value and be nice anyway!l

What dream did you have that you've given up on?  We've all had goals & dreams we've let go of, we either don't believe we've the ability, or we're not prepared to do the work required to achieve them. So we live a life where we limit our own success, rather than one where we empower ourselves to live a limitless life. Imagine that, a life with no limits, where anything and everything is possible.  Don't exist in a world full of opportunity without ever taking advantage of what is in front of you

The four traits of an inspired life: ClarityClarity is about how well you manage your energy and intention. Stay focused and clear in your intent in every situation, whenever possible. Clarity is also about moving beyond confusion through understanding, communication, decision making, and the willingness to let go. You’ll almost always be better off by making a small bad choice rather than staying stuck in your own uncertainty and the bad choice you already know. A step in any direction will give you feedback. Remember that no movement means no feedback! IntegrityLiving with integrity means that what you feel and know on the inside matches what you say and do on the outside. Integrity is alignment. It’s not about adhering to an external set of standards regarding morality or good behavior. This is a self-referenced, soul-centered quality. It also represents ownership and responsibility. Integrity means your intentions are reflected in your conduct and mind-set. CourageCourage is one of the more underrated and underemphasized qualities in the lives of those with Inspiration Deficit Disorder. More often than not, the main difference between a person with an inspiration deficit and someone without one is whether or not you have the courage to act on what you feel and know in your essence. Think of it in this way: integrity would remain just a good idea without courage.Courage is like a muscle: the more you use it, the stronger it gets. Trusting, releasing control, staying present, and being kind all take a powerful resolve in the face of old habits and patterns. Remember that fear is the most fundamental root behind all inspiration deficits. The soul cannot blossom or be fully expressed wherever fear is allowed to grow. CompassionCompassion is something we all feel but have a difficult time expressing in words. Genuine compassion is about empowering ourselves and others while embodying kindness. It’s about seeking the highest good in every situation, but not always trying to make people happy or “fix” things.Compassion is being creative, always approaching situations with respect and a desire to understand. By doing so, you can overcome obstacles or hardships through patience, forgiveness, and taking a stand when necessary. You can be steadfast when it comes to protecting yourself or your beliefs, while also honoring your connection to all people and things. Maintain balance, healthy limits, and self-care, as well as the awareness that helping from your Persona rather than your essence isn’t really helping at all. Remember that compassion is love in action—it’s big enough to overcome anything. Sometimes it requires radical action, and other times restraint. To truly embody it is to embrace self-love. Master that and the loving-kindness you offer to the world will be limitless.
* * *

Life has no smooth road for any of us. As we go down it, we need to remember that happiness is a talent we develop, not an object we seek. It’s the ability to bounce back from life’s inevitable setbacks. Some people are crushed by misfortune. Others grow because of it. Everything worthwhile is at first difficult.

Creating your own reality is something that you are doing right now, whether you are aware of it or not. The reality that you are currently experiencing is largely created by both the thoughts and beliefs that you hold, and the choices and decisions that you have made. The decisions that you make in the present are what will shape your reality in the futureAccepting this may be a bit difficult to do if you are less than thrilled with the current circumstances of your life. Many people find it easier to blame other people, life, fate, or anything else they can think of, rather than facing the fact that they are creating their own reality. However, this is a trap, because it is extremely dis empowering else is responsible for creating your current unhappy circumstances, then you are basically stuck with these circumstances until that person or force decides to change things for you. However, if you are willing to recognize that, in each moment you are creating your own reality - imperfect as it may be right now, you can begin accepting your own power to create a future reality that is more closely aligned with your idealsIf someone/something else is responsible for creating your current unhappy circumstances, then you are basically stuck with these circumstances until that person or force decides to change things for you. However, if you are willing to recognize that, in each moment you are creating your own reality - imperfect as it may be right now, you can begin accepting your own power to create a future reality that is more closely aligned with your ideals.Whatever you believe with feeling becomes your reality.” In other words, if you truly believe that you can live a happy, powerful and loving life, there is nothing that can stop this becoming your experience of reality. If you do not have a heartfelt belief that you are able to live the life you desire, chances are very high that you are not experiencing that ideal realityIf you want to change your reality, change your beliefs. This can be done through the use of affirmations, life coaching, and various other tools and techniques. The main thing is to realize that you are creating your reality with the beliefs you hold. If you are not prepared to do what it takes to change those beliefs, your experience of reality is also unlikely to changeEverything you can imagine is real. “ If we heed these words, we can begin to see how we create our own happiness, or misery, with the imaginings that we allow to fill our minds. Are you allowing your reality to be shaped by imagined wonders, or imagined misfortunes?Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.

Trust CEO Buck Rogers 11/15/2010 Why do some have better relationships than others? To appreciate this one needs to understand the key factor that drives relationships. The strength of a relationship cannot be measured by the number of people known to that person, but by other's eagerness to closely work with him. But why would one like to work with him and not with others? The reason is that he is perceived by others as trustworthy. People like to work with him as they do not feel the threat of being cheated. The foundation of all relationships is based on trust. How do we cultivate trust in a relationship? By being honest in all our interactions. This is easier said than done. How can we be honest with someone when we are not sure of a similar behavior in return. In case our trust is broken we will look like fools having trusted him, in the first place, that too when the pressure of competition is so high. However, no trust can be developed without making an earnest attempt in that direction. Hence, it is important that team members take all steps to inculcate trust. But, how? Let's discuss. Start relationships with an assumption that the person interacting with us is trustworthy till he sufficiently proves otherwise. This will provide enough opportunity for him to reciprocate. If he does, then it will kick start the relationship. Maintain relationships by ensuring that the trust is not breached at any time. Hence, the team members need to be transparent. Sometimes trust can get broken due to misunderstanding. Transparency can be very useful in clearing misunderstanding. All doubts should be addressed through a robust feedback mechanism which is specific, clear and not vague. Strengthen relationships by working in the interest of others and not by promoting oneself with a purpose of taking credit. This will boost confidence in the team members, and precious time will be saved for adding value and getting the work done than worrying about those working against our interest.* * *

You might be climbing the tree of your destiny right now and people are criticizing you, judging you, laughing at you; but don't worry because when you finally get to the top of your tree, those who pilloried you will be ashamed of themselves. Just don't give up, keep working hard with faith climbing indefatigably, and I assure you that in due time all your efforts will be rewarded, and your indefatigability will not be in vain. You'll surely make it to the finish line. The only reason you will not make it, is if you give up along the way. Remember If a snail walks slowly doesn't mean it won't get to its destination. You must get to your promised land! SO DON'T GIVE UP, PERIOD!

If no one hates or talks bad about you it just means nothing is happening in your life. The easiest way to a miserable life is to think everybody is talking about you. Learn to ignore and overlook many things if you truly want happiness in life. Don't be too sensitive the whole world can't be talking about you. Stop worrying yourself about what people say behind your back because it is none of your business as long as you are being  true to yourself. No matter your situation in life people will always talk. You can never stop people from talking about you, what you can do is to stop giving them what to talk about. Sometimes minding your own business won't keep people out of your business. People sometimes will spread  bad stories about you but there is  a time limit for every rumor in life. Never allow people to put your destiny on hold.

A shark in a fish tank will grow 8 inches, but in the ocean it will grow to 8 feet or more. The shark will never outgrow its environment and the same is true about you. Many times we're around small thinking people so we don't grow. Change your environment and watch your growth.

A Story of Appreciation - Must read for all  This is a powerful message in our modern society. We seemed to have lost our bearing & our sense of direction. One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision. The director discovered from the CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score. The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the youth answered "none". The director asked, " Was it your father who paid for your school fees?" The youth answered, "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees. The director asked, " Where did your mother work?" The youth answered, "My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect. The director asked, " Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" The youth answered, "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me. The director said, "I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning. The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid. The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water. This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future. After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother. That night, mother and son talked for a very long time. Next morning, the youth went to the director's office. The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, asked: " Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?" The youth answered, " I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes' The Director asked, " please tell me your feelings." The youth said, Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, there would not the successful me today. Number 2, by working together and helping my mother only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done. Number 3, I have come to appreciate the importance and value of family relationship. The director said, " This is what I am looking for to be my manager.I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired. Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously. A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more.  . The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done

It doesn’t matter what you choose to do with your life, but I hope that whatever you choose, you go all in. I hope that you give it everything you’ve got, every single day. I hope that you’re not afraid to dig deep within yourself as you chase your dreams. And I hope that you chase them with as much passion and boldness and you possibly can. I hope that you pour your entire heart into them and go to bed each night so proud of yourself because you knew you gave it everything you had.

Strength to Let GoBy CEO Buck Rogers10/18/2020 "Sometimes you gotta fight for what you love and care about. Other times, you gotta find the strength to let go of the things you love most."
* * *

Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.Simplicity!  Living with simplicity entails being true to yourself and others. By being ‘simple in actions and thoughts’, there are few or no things that clog your mind and heart. You discard all the inessential stuff that makes life complicated and burdensome. Thus ‘you return to the source of being’ – your authentic self, your life purpose, your inner vision. You become attuned to yourself and the world around you.Patience!  Through simplifying your life, you cultivate patience since there are fewer distractions and unnecessary pressures. You become more patient with others because you are more in tune with yourself. You are not split between your mind, heart and a thousand things. You are focused and receptive to life situations and people around you. You ‘accord with the way things are’.Compassion!  You start with being ‘compassionate toward yourself’. Stop meandering in doubts, negative thoughts and criticism. Accept and give space to yourself. You are not perfect in the eyes of the world but you are perfect in the eyes of the universe – It just takes a wider perspective. By allowing simplicity, cultivating patience and being compassionate toward yourself, you will spread out your attention away from your self-focused inner conversations and widen your peripheral vision to include othersYou ‘reconcile all beings in the world’. This is a very interesting notion. Lack of compassion comes from a sense of separateness. That others are different – they are not me. They are a potential threat to my scarce resources, self-image and freedom. Compassion on the other hand, arises out of seeing yourself being on the same boat with others. You see yourself, together with your needs and misguided worries, in others. Others become reflections of yourself. Hence through compassion you reconcile all beings in the world as you recognize they are connected together in the web of life rather than separate entities in a disconnected world.

There is little difference in people, but the little difference is a big difference. The little difference is attitude; the big differences is whether it is positive or negative

Two Things MatterBy CEO Buck Rogers10/12/2020 "Two things in life really matter; what you learn and the difference you make in the lives of others.   What you learn enables you to make a difference, but dies with you.   The difference you make in the lives of others is the only thing that persists.   Learn, teach, mentor and care enough to make a difference in the lives of others.   Just a thought."

Self-discipline is a very powerful tool that can be developed for achieving about anything which you can dream. However, there are four key ingredients that must be present in our lives to allow self-discipline to flourish and exist. Most people have some or all of these key ingredients, but lack the knowledge of where and how to use them. Here are the four key ingredients of self-discipline: 1. Self-Control – The act of controlling our emotions, actions, thoughts, words, and personal direction. 2. Motivation – The “fire inside”, that fuels our efforts and makes accomplishments worth achieving3. Persistence – The ability to continue through adversity. The ability to brush off failure and stay focused on our goals. 4. Goals – Those tangible achievements that breed motivation and form our definitions of happiness and success.All four of these ingredients must be present in our lives to achieve self-discipline. Every one of us knows a highly motivated person or two that just can’t seem to do anything right. A friend or neighbor who has the goal of becoming self-employed, but just can’t muster enough courage to take the first step. At one time or another, all of us have been motivated to do something, only to give up after the first failure.How many people go on a diet each year and gain more weight than they originally started with? How often have you created a household budget for you and your family, only to find yourself deeper in debt? These are examples of living without self-discipline. The reason we get depressed and frustrated when we pinch the fat on our midsection or thighs, is not because we lack a proper genetic make-up, but because we have undertaken a task without developing self-discipline.In order to ensure our success at every endeavor, we must first understand how to strengthen and enhance each of the four key-ingredients needed for self-discipline. By understanding and practicing simple techniques that strengthen each ingredient, we open the door to success by eliminating our self-destructive behaviors. Once we become accustomed to recognizing and implementing these four ingredients, the programmed habit of self-discipline allows us to take control of our lives. Let’s begin by examining each key-ingredient and learning simple techniques for enhancing their influence.

My epitaph..to be remembered by..He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction. What would yours be?

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unreliability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.

People Want to HearBy CEO Buck Rogers 10/11/2020 "Don't waste your time with explanations, people only hear what they want to hear!"
* * *

>There are moments when a man is soft and should be feminine. There are moments when the husbands should be the wife and the wife should be the husband, and this should be very natural. And there will be more rhythm and more harmony. If a man is not Supposed to be a man twenty-four hours, he will be more relaxed. When the male part becomes tired you move to the female part; the male part rests. When the female part is tired you rest; you become male. And this is an inner economy — one goes on changing. But your society has taught you wrong things: that a man is a man, and Has to be a man twenty-four hours — this is too much of a duty. And a woman has to be a woman twenty-four hours –soft, loving, compassionate: this is too much of a duty. Sometimes she also wants to fight, be angry, throw things — and this is good, if you understand the inner play. These two polarities are a good inner play — the play of consciousness.

8. Section Eight 9/27/2020

What’s done is done. Stop trying to breathe life into dead situations. Leave it alone and move forward. Your future is waiting

Sometimes you have to forget what's gone, appreciate what remains, and look forward to what's coming next.

Search a beautiful heart not a beautiful face. Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful.Good evening.

Every saint has a past.Every sinner has a future.

There are people who will put you down in life, mock your dream, challenge your personality. They will look like as if they are winners but in actual fact, They are only voicing out their insecurities and jealousy.  Don't let anybody pull you down. Believe and accept yourself and hold onto what you believe in. When you have to start compromising yourself or your morals for the people around you, it's probably time to change the people around you. Appreciate those who love you and help those who need you, forgive those who hurt you and forget those who leave you! Focus on claiming your destiny

Life is like a piano it has white keys and black keys..the white keys represent happiness and the black keys represent sadness..but as you go through lifes journey, remember that the black keys also create music...

The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets. The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears. And the kindest hearts have felt the most pain

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again.

Empathy~personally or professionally~has become a lost art in the midst of technological advances, and so many drilling towards monetary gain to sustain themselves. People have forgotten how important it is to see through the eyes of another, to use their heart to feel and walk in another's shoes without judgment. To have a mind of your own. Amazing how little effort it takes to extend another some grace and understanding. Take a second look respond with your hearts rather than rely on others."Don't believe everything you hear. REAL EYES, REALIZE. REAL LIES.

As a member of the human race, you are equal to all other human beings in the world. Never forget that.

When someone tells me “no,” it doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it simply means I can’t do it with them.

People are made to be loved, and things are made to be used- the confusion in thisworld is because people are being used and things are being loved

Each and every day, each and every one of us, pass through our lives with limited appreciation for our true quantum potential. We are so focused on the approval and acceptance of those at work, those we meet up with; hoping society will embrace our individual uniqueness and flaws. We are so absorbed with pleasing people and in becoming socialites, we lose perspective of what is really important: APPRECIATING OURSELVES. Don't allow others to use you as a doormat and make sure that you are allowing only people and things into your life that DESERVE you and your attention.

We find violence ever growing in the world today; or have we been violent since our beginning? We find suffering ever growing in our world today; or have we been suffering since our beginning? We find fear the emotion that is growing today; or has fear been with us since our beginning? We will take life at manylevels of life to survive in the world today; or have we been doing this since our beginning? Violence is what life often is, suffering is what life often is, fear is a part of living life. And killing is what life makes plane we will do to survive, as life will always consume life...But we human animals do have a choice as to how we will live and be consumed in life. as love for life and all who suffer the violence needlessly, all who fear in life can love the experience of living and do so with dignity by "Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you".

Life is a precious gift that people take for granted. A lot of people think that many moments are just ordinary but they aren't for the simple reason you are alive to enjoy it. Life is a gift, enjoy it, life is full of extraordinary moments, enjoy them!

The process of becoming a leader is not easy or comfortable but the trials and challenges are necessary. How else can you lead and teach others if you have not been taught yourself. Consider the mentors in your life. Ask them about how they got where they are. The stories will be different than what you think you see. You will hear that they faced great challenges just as you may be facing now. The difference is that leaders never ever give up. If you have but one follower you are a leader. Do not underestimate the power of YOU! You are strong and beautiful and so worthy of GREATNESS!

He who knows all the answers has not been asked all the questions

Motivational stories are tales that encourage us to be the best we can be. They remind us that there is always a way to achieve something if we want it badly enough, to never give up, and to believe in ourselves. These stories inspire and hearten us by showing how people just like us have found the courage to overcome adversity, make the best of the worst situations, achieve the ‘impossible,’ and refuse to be slowed down by physical limitations.An incredibly inspiring woman was Helen Keller, who refused to let physical limitations stop her from living life to the full. Despite being deaf and blind, she became a well educated, world-famous speaker and writer. She spent much of her life advocating for the rights of the blind, and continues to inspire us with her wonderfully positive ideasViktor Frankl was a psychologist who survived three years in concentration camps in the early 1940s. During his imprisonment, he not only managed to keep a positive attitude, but helped other inmates to overcome the shock and grief they were experiencing. He was able to find meaning in life, amidst unthinkable circumstances, and after his release, spent his life and career inspiring the world to ‘say yes to life in spite of everything.’Those of us who wish to live lives of abundance (and who doesn’t?!) can find great encouragement from motivational stories of ‘rags to riches,’ and of people who have overcome adversity and hardship in life to reach their dreams and financial success.Being motivating and inspiring is not about being rich and famous, it’s simply about following your heart and living your dreams- no matter what. If you look around, there are almost certainly people in your life whose courage, determination, attitudes, and inner glow encourage others without even trying. If you trust your intuition, are true to yourself, and follow your dreams, you will be one of those people whose motivational stories encourage those around them, and your life will be an inspiration.

Where everyone is accountable everyone wins. Where everyone is accountable there is unity and love. Where there is accountability everyone prospers.

Stay strong. Those who overcome great challenges will be changed, and often in unexpected ways. For our struggles enter our lives as unwelcome guests, but they bring valuable gifts. And once the pain subsides, the gifts remain. These gifts are life's true treasures, bought at great price, but cannot be acquired in any other way.

Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very  little and are thankful for the small things in life.

Remove Fear and Eliminate Many of Your ChallengesIt’s unlikely you have any issues in your life that weren’t created by fear. You might not think that your financial or relationship challenges are rooted in fear. However, if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll probably realize that many of your obstacles are caused by your fears and your inability to deal with them in an appropriate way.Consider these examples:Relationship issues. Fear of abandonment is a common fear. It’s also common to fear the loss of autonomy or freedom. Trust issues can also be fear-based. You might be afraid that you won’t be accepted fully.Money issues. Many people deal with fear and anxiety by shopping, which can create debt. Some simply fear discomfort and are unable to let go of that expensive car or morning coffee.Procrastination. Procrastination can be caused by fear of failure or the perceived discomfort of performing an unpleasant task.For example, you might fear you’re missing out on something exciting and check your email instead of working.Stuck in a job you dislike. You might be afraid that no other decent jobs exist for you. You might be fearful of giving up your benefits or getting a new job that pays less. You might be afraid of going through the application process and competing for a better job.These are just a few examples. Consider the other parts of your life that are challenging. Can you see how fear is having a negative impact?How to handle your fears that are holding you back:Realize that fear is uncomfortable, but it isn’t a good reason to avoid doing something. Fear is helpful if you’re considering doing something physically dangerous. But at the end of the day, fear is simply a feeling.There’s no reason to let fear guide every decision you make.Think about the fearful activity and simply breathe. Your body is unable to maintain a fear reaction in the long term. There’s a psychological technique called “flooding.” In flooding, a person is exposed to their fear without being allowed any reprieve.Think about the activity that makes you uncomfortable and focus on taking long, deep breaths. Notice how you start to feel better.Make a list of the ways that fear is holding you back. If some part of your life is in complete turmoil, it’s likely that you made poor decisions in the past. How did fear affect your decision-making abilities at that time?Remember the times you were fearful and still made a good choice. You’ve likely had times where you felt fear but managed to take the appropriate course of action anyway.Remind yourself of those times and remember how strong you can be.Practice dealing with discomfort. Take a situation that you find mildly uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s eating peas or talking to an attractive member of the opposite sex. Force yourself to deal with small doses of the discomfort, and increase the level of exposure over time.Although it’s challenging to give up the habit of avoidance, you’ll be surprised at how much you can tolerate.Realize that discomfort and fear are frequently good things. If you’re not doing anything that makes you uncomfortable, your life is likely to stay the same. It’s only when you push your comfort level that new things can begin to happen.Fear is the most common cause of challenges in life. Learn to work through fear and gain the ability to make positive choices. You’ll boost your self-esteem and enjoy a happier life. Learn to embrace discomfort as a positive sign that your life is about to change for the better. Get started today!

Treat Them Right By CEO Buck Rogers 6/18/2020 "If a person is wrong still treat them right."* * *

Life doesn't get easier, you just get stronger.

If you think you are having it bad, there are many people in this world that have it so much harder especially after current and recent storms and fires.. Think on these things and how blessed you are. . :)  Have a great day

Life is same for everyone We are all in the same game                With the same rules               But you can choose               To accept or refuse             Whatever life throws your way                               Continue to play                      And don't be shy                         When you're not sure to actUnderstand the process before you react                                Life is what you attract

We all believe that addressing the needs and rights of women and girls throughout  the world is an important component to alleviate poverty, achieve social justice and making progress on our development goals.

Never feel afraid to Raise your Voice for Compassion, Justice, Honesty and Tuth... 3You and 2 others

A relationship without trust is like a car without gas..You can stay in it ..but..it won’t go anywhere

Dear Past, thank you for your lessons..Dear future, I am ready for another chance..

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere

Ambition is not what a man would do, but what a man does, for ambition without action is fantasy

No one ever gets tired of loving, They just get tired of waiting, assuming, hearing lies, saying sorry and hurting.

The problem with waiting until tomorrow is that when it finally arrives it is called today.

Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.

Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day

A person usually makes a lot of hand gestures when telling a true story. When telling a lie, a person’s hands will stay noticeably still.

Learn to ignore the things you can have no control over. Mental strength is like muscle strength--no one has an unlimited supply. So why waste your power on things you can't control? For some people, it's politics. For others, it's family. For others, it's global warming. Whatever it is, you care, and you want others to care. Fine. Do what you can do: Vote. Lend a listening ear. Recycle, and reduce your carbon footprint. Do what you can do. Be your own change--but don't try to make everyone else change. (They won't.)

Excuses are the rocks where our dreams are crushed.

EliminationBy CEO Buck Rogers8/25/2020 So many people try to advance their life and career by simply doing more, ‘working harder’. Although effort is required and working hard is good, just doing more is not going to help you as much you think it will. 

The key to success is to focus on the activities that actually gain the greatest result. Focus can only occur when we have said yes to one option and no to all other options. In other words, elimination is a prerequisite for focus. What you don’t do determines what you can do. Once you figure this out, your progress will rise exponentially!* * *

I try hard to remember that I do not have to be the strongest, or the fastest. But I must remain the free one! Thinking independent of the masses and trusting in my integrity rather then the current politically right speech.

Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful...

JUST BECAUSE...By CEO Buck Rogers8/23/2020 Just because no one has been fortunate enough to realize what a gold mine you are,Doesn't mean you shine any less.... Just because no one has been smart enough to figure out that you can't be topped, Doesn't stop you from being the best.... Just because no one has come along to share your life, Doesn't mean that day isn't coming.... Just because no one has made this race worth while, Doesn't give you permission to stop running...

Speak By CEO Buck Rogers8/22/2020 Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you.Listen in such a way that others love speaking to you.* * *

Worry less, smile more, accept criticism, take responsibility. Listen more, embrace change. Feel good about yourself, and live it up

The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be.There’s a light inside of everyone. No matter what, someone is always going to come around and try to dim that light or shut it off. Whatever you do, you hold on to that light and you fight. You fight to not let that person tear you down, you fight for the right to define yourself, to not let anyone else tell you who you are. You gotta keep your head up, because people will always hang around waiting for you to fall, for the light to shut off. Don’t ever let someone fade the light that makes you beautiful. Because in the end, you’re the one who controls how brightly you shineMoonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon:::How much it can fill your room depends on it's windows

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

My basic principle is that you don't make decisionsbecause they are easy;you don't make them because they are cheap;you don't make them because they're popular;you make them because they're right...

You are responsible for your own happiness. If you expect others to make you happy, you will always be disappointed.

The right choices make for a good life.  The wrong ones make for good life lessons and more right choices.

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome

No one has ever made himself GREAT by showing how small someone else is

I Choose… to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not to compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, Not the random opinion of others.Good evening

Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.

Don't let your fear of the past affect the outlook of your future. Live for what tomorrow has to bring, not what yesterday has taken away.

Nothing is ever as it seems. What looks bad today, can be a blessing tomorrow.

When the mind is weak,a difficult situation becomes a problem.When the mind is balanced,the same situation becomes a challenge.And when the mind is strong,the same situation becomes an opportunity. Good night!!!

When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. When life is bitter, say thank you and grow.

With "tolerance" we serve and help people to find their way. An accepting and impartial outlook on life makes it easier to relate to people from many different ideological, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds. If you do find yourself responding judgmentally to something you see or hear, consider why you are having this reaction? However much we might wish that the people with whom we share our environments might adopt our beliefs and values, we must understand their path is different from ours. Let go of control and condemnation and offer acceptance instead!

If we can not respect another, how can we expect them to respect us? If we can not respect someone’s beliefs, how can we expect them to respect ours? If we can not respect another’s race, how can we expect that race to respect us? If we can not respect others, how can we expect respect in return ? Everyone expects respect and no matter who they are, the only way to gain it, is to start treating everyone as a friend, a brother, a sister as part of our extended family. No matter what colour or creed they are, only then you will start to get the respect you so dearly crave  The harsh reality on all forms.

Face your fear to understand it . . . or it will continue to hold you hostage

Success means having the courage, the determination, & the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be

Champions rarely talk. They just peform, and the world around them talks

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.

Wishing I Had ItBy Buck Rogers [Conservative]8/9/2020 I would much rather go to my grave never needing my gun, then to go there wishing I had it. * * *

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing

Good things take time It is often said that the secret of victory comes from patience and perseverance.  Sometimes good things happen without warning. Although success does not always depend on luck and fate our true virtue is knowing how to wait for all that good that will come to us one day. We spend all our lives waiting for a miracle to happen, and the only thing we see happening is our life ! You have to know that good things take time, that they do not happen overnight. Thus, most of the time, they really deserve to be expected and will force us to improve as an individual and to persist in our life goals. To wait is part of our constructive behaviors, which will help us to face the reality of the life. adopt a peaceful and confident attitude , despite the lack of activity and think of the benefits that will result from waiting .These behaviors will help us to be relaxed and more open to the world. Each person has a different schedule and it is necessary to respect their own pace.  Tell yourself that most of the items on your famous list are still in progress.  Some dreams will not be fulfilled , but many will be too . Everything will be built.  We are neither early nor late.We must simply live our time : and time always rewards the one who knows how to be patient !

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment

We look forward to the time when the power to love will replacethe love of power, then will our world know the blessing of peace

Let Others LeadBy CEO Buck Rogers 7/6/2020 The wise person and warrior focuses on feeling through their intuition rather than action or outer show. The rely on their inner strength like a powerful but gentle mare, and subsequently that gentle but powerful mare "lets herself be guided and is skilled at graceful acceptance." This translates to being broad and deep in attitude~allowing yourself to use your intuition and FEEL your actions rather than through bold outer show actions because sometimes you have to let others LEAD, while you allow your natural responsiveness to guide you! * * *

Sometimes the right person was there all along, but you never saw them because the wrong person was in the way.

Sometimes in life we have to go through the dark only to see the light at the end of the tunnelLife gives us hard evidence, but keep in mind that everything you are experiencing now will make you stronger in the futureTesting is a purification, a form to improve in this life you have to endure, to master patience.

ChangeBy CEO Buck Rogers8/7/2020 "Love is nothing without action. Trust is nothing without proof. Regret is nothing without change."

Ask the sands of the oceans from where they have come. They have come from the mountains. They will tell you a great secret: ‘Water wins finally. We were hard, and we thought that water cannot win. We were very, very settled; we could not believe that this poor water, so soft, unharming, unhurting, nonviolent could destroy us. But it destroyed us. That is the beauty of feminine energy. Don't be like a rock. Be like water, soft, feminine. And victory is yours. Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth.  This shows clearly of softness overcoming hardness.

The real battle takes place in your mind. If you’re defeated in your thoughts, you’ve already lost battle to claim your destiny. Set your mind up for victory. They might doubt You, Scorn your aspirations, eliminate you from their circles. Don't worry! Just keep your focus on your destiny and victory. Believe me with determination, faith and hard work you will prove them wrong by claiming your destiny, great success. Embarrass them with your massive success!  Be strong, but not rude. Remember to be kind,be bold, be humble, be proud not arrogant. Claim your destiny. Best wishes.

Keep your THOUGHTS POSITIVE because- Your thoughts become your words.Keep your WORDS POSITIVE because- Your words become your behavior.Keep your BEHAVIOR POSITIVE because - Your behavior becomes your habit.Keep your HABIT POSITIVE because- Your habits become your values.Keep your VALUES POSITIVE because - Your values become your destiny.

9. Section Nine 8/4/2020

Anyone can give up, it is the easiest thing in the world  to do..but to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength


When I have coffee with you, I feel the first coffee tree has been seeded just for this moment~. We are a set of emotions!We have to express and feel them all without hesitation to grow & understand life more!  They are at the heart of every interaction & "Only from the heart you can touch the sky".~ Rumi No matter how much busy you are, show love for those who have been there always for you. Some of them might not be there for long. "You can't stop time. You can't capture light. You can only turn your face up and let it rain down". Kim Edwards Appreciate what you have & who you have, because the future can take them all away from you anytime. Do it before it is too late.Say it before you run out of time. Love is about mutual appreciation and admiration.It does not require something in return. The greatest gift we can give to others is love without expectations! Wish you a great day & night.


Refuse to LoseBy CEO Buck Rogers7/21/2020Refuse to lose, refuse to be defeated, refuse to be cheated and refuse to have regrets. Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth


Something to ponder on for the weekend...EVIL. It can be as big as murder or as small as a lie. Indulgence and corruption grow like weeds in an untended garden. They must be faced squarely and rooted out through bold action. The successful person master's the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing. When lies, delusions and game playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even correction, must be wielded to protect one's integrity and values. Decisiveness with integrity brings good fortune, but it is no simple task.

Only You Are Responsible By CEO Buck Rogers7/13/2020"So many people can be responsible for your success, but only you are responsible for your failure."
* * *


Never forget that your life is bigger than your fears ...your forces are greater than your doubts.While your mind is confused ...your heart will always know the answer.what is difficult today ..tomorrow will be a treasure. Fight for what you really want will fill the soul,and if you have the virtue of knowing how to wait ..because everything has to be ...WILL BE!


True words aren’t eloquent; eloquent words aren’t true. Wise men don’t need to prove their point; men who need to prove their point aren’t wise. The Master has no possessions. The more he does for others, the happier he is. The more he gives to others, the wealthier he is.


Think success, don’t think failure. Let the master thought of “I can….I will succeed!” dominate your thinking process. Thinking success conditions your mind to create plans that produce success


The best gift you could ever give someone is your TIME because you're giving them something that you'll never get back.


Never expect things to happen, it's better to feel surprised than to feel disappointed.

I have forgiven mistakes that were unforgivable I have tried to replace those who were irreplaceable and tried to forget those who were unforgettable.In the secret of my heart teach me wisdomI have laughed when It was almost impossible to laugh. I have held someone to protect them. I have made life long friends, I’ve loved and been loved. I have screamed and jumped for joy, I have lived on love and made eternal promises of love.I have fallen many times..I have fallen in love with a smile.What is really good is to fight with determination, embrace life and live it with passion. Lose your battles with class and dare to win because the world belongs to those who dare to live.Life is worth too much to be insignificant

Whoever is reading this, you are beautiful and someone out there is crazy about you. So smile, life is too short to be unhappy..


The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!

As many of you know, I co-edited an anthology of writings by Voltairine de Cleyre. This may be my favorite quote from her.  “Let every woman ask herself: "Why am I the slave of man? Why is my brain said not to be the equal of his brain? Why is my work notpaid equally with his? Why must my body be controlled by my husband? Why may he take my labor in the household, giving me in exchange what he deems fit? Why may he take my children from me? Will them away while yet unborn?" Let every woman ask.”-- Voltairine de Cleyre


Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.


There is no paradise without hellThere is no pleasure without pain        Life is full of paradoxesLet's just call them challengesEverything we do has consequences             Every choice countsEvery single word changes your life           For better or for worseIf you want to live a peaceful life       You must respect one ruleControl yourself before it controls youIt is as simple and as complicated as that


On TopBy CEO Buck Rogers7/3/2020 "The man at the top of the mountain didn’t fall there." * * *


Flows to MeBy CEO Buck Rogers7/3/2020 "When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;  If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.  From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.  There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it."* * *


If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things.


The definition of a Yes-Man:  “A weak person who always agrees with their political leader or their superior at work.”  Phew! I’m ok here, I definitely speak my mind and have my own opinions, and do not always agree. So what’s am I? what’s wrong with me?  • I like to see all the check boxes checked next to my To Do list • I like to stay busy • I like to feel accomplished • I like to make a difference   So, I’m thinking it turns out that the only problem I have here is moderation… Are you the same way?  What I’ve found is, if you are good at what you do, you will be given more opportunities and responsibilities. This is a good thing because it helps us grow and excel even more. At some point however, we need to take greater responsibility and know when the load is full without usurping time and cycles from other aspects of our lives. Every day, work will still be there, there will always be more to do. Work and feel fulfilled. Do what you are passionate about. But when the [work]day is done. Be satisfied with what you’ve completed and walk away til tomorrow. Managers will not think less of you. Recharge, Balance your life, and be ready for what tomorrow brings.


Don't make life too stressful ..Always find time to laugh. It may not add years to your life, but it adds more life to your years


Behind Every ProfileBy CEO Buck Rogers6/28/2020 🛑Sincere APOLOGY to my friends.  First, thank you all so much.I would not be able to write a single line if it was not for all the support and inspiration from all of you.

Bitter Snow By CEO Buck Rogers6/28/2020 ⚘ Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reedSome say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleedSome say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching needI say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seedIt's the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to danceIt's the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chanceIt's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to giveAnd the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to liveWhen the night has been too lonely and the road has been too longAnd you think that love is only for the lucky and the strongJust remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snowsLies the seed, that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose...* * *


Without darkness there would be no sleep; a time to nurture the dreams we keep. May your dreams  gently touch your heart and soul .. scattering stars like a magical memory uniting fantasy and reality .. lighting dark spaces, in and out of shadows ..      Fall asleep with open windows and listen to the symphony of the night


There are few in life very few who have all that they can ever need or dream of which is handed to them. Most people have to get off their asses and make those dreams in to their reality and to work every hour possible to make it come true. Always aim as high as you can as even if you don't reach the dream you will be as close as possible & in fact what you do achieve may be the reality that you need in life. Thank people, Respect Others, Help & Don't Judge anybody and in turn your dreams with your hard work will come true. Trust me I know


Give6/23/2020By CEO Buck Rogers "Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart." * * *


“I know from the bottom of my heart and with all of it, that it doesn't matter if at the end of your life you can say that you shared the best of yourself with the rest of the world and it doesn't matter if everyone in the world remembers you as wonderful; but what matters is if at the end of your life you can say that you shared the best of yourself with the handful of people who are around you, that you gave the wonderful in you, to the people you love and who love you. Happiness never has and never will come from fame.

A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable then a lot of friends who only know your smile


Quit trying to please everyone. Get this through your head — you are not responsible for other people's happiness. It is exclusively other people's responsibility to please themselves. Be authentic and please yourself, which is perfect for running-off the people who need to go, and bringing-in the people who should be in your life. We sure aren't taught this as children are we? When children are taught to be "good" and keep everyone happy, it teaches them that they have the impossible burden of being responsible for other people's happiness. It teaches them that other people's happiness comes before theirs, and they wrap that concept up in a suffocating package called, "not being selfish."


I am in competition with no one. I run my own race.I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone,in any way, or form.I just aim to improve to be better than I was before. That's me and I'm free.


Life isn't about having things that can make you enjoy your life. It's about enjoying your life with the things you have


A diamond cannot be polished            Without frictionA human being cannot be wise           Without affliction Life is full of ups                         And                             Downs                        When you are upEnjoy it to the fullestAnd     when           you                are                   downPray, hope and adapt                    Tough times reveal                        What is hiddenYour true selfYour true strengthAnd your true friends


When we die, our money remains in the bank... Yet, when we are alive, we don't have enough money to spend. In reality, when we are gone, there is still a lot of money not spent. A business tycoon in China passed away. His widow, left with $1.9 billion in the bank, married his chauffeur. His chauffeur said:- "All the while, I thought I was working for my boss... it is only now, that I realize that my boss was all the time, working for me !!!" The cruel reality is: It is more important to live longer than to have more wealth. So, we must strive to have a strong and healthy body, It really doesn't matter who is working for who. In a high end hand phone, 70% of the functions are useless!For an expensive car, 70% of the speed and gadgets are not needed.If you own a luxurious villa or mansion, 70% of the space is usually not used or occupied.How about your wardrobes of clothes? 70% of them are not worn!A whole life of work and earning... 70% is for other people to spend. So, we must protect and make full use of our 30%. Go for medical check-ups even if not sick. Drink more water, even if not thirsty. Learn to let go, even if faced with grave problems. Endeavor to give in, even if you are in the right. Remain humble, even if you are very rich and powerful. learn to be contented, even if you are not rich. Exercise your mind and body, even if you are very busy.  Make time for people you care about.LIFE IS SHORT... ENJOY & LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!!!🔹Love God and others More!✔🔹Take time to PRAY and Read the Word of God! ✔🔹Drink Plenty of water. ✔🔹EAT:            Breakfast like a KING,            Lunch like a Prince &           Dinner like a pauper. ✔🔹Live with the 3 E's--      Energy,      Enthusiasm &      Empathy.✔🔹Play good games.✔🔹Read more books than you did in 2016.✔🔹Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.✔🔹Sleep for 7 hours.✔🔹Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily And while you walk... Smile.✔🔹Don't over do. Keep your limits.✔🔹Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.✔🔹Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.✔🔹Dream more while you are awake.✔🔹Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.✔🔹Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present Happiness.✔🔹Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.✔🔹Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.✔🔹No one is in charge of your happiness except you.✔🔹Smile and Laugh More.✔🔹You don't have to win every argument, Agree to disagree. ✔🔹Call your family often.✔🔹Each day give something good to others.✔🔹Forgive everyone for everything.✔🔹Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.✔🔹Try to make at least three people smile each day.✔🔹What other people think of you is none of your business.✔🔹Do the right thing!✔🔹GOD heals everything.✔🔹However good or bad a situation is, it will change.✔🔹No matter how you feel, Get up, Dress up and Show up. The best is yet to come.✔🔹When awake in the morning Thank GOD for it.✔🔹Your Inner most is always happy...So, be Happy. ✔

Your thoughts form your character, how you operate in the world, how far you travel mentally, physically, and spiritually. You are what you think you are, and all of your actions proceed from thought. Your inner thoughts will always be reflected in your outer circumstances, because self-generated changes in your life are always preceded by changes in the way you think about something.  As far as your brain, every thought releases brain chemicals. Being focused on negative thoughts effectively saps the brain of its positive forcefulness, slows it down, and can go as far as dimming your brain's ability to function, even creating depression. On the flip side, thinking positive, happy, hopeful, optimistic, joyful thoughts decreases cortisol and produces serotonin, which creates a sense of well-being. This helps your brain function at peak capacity.  Happy thoughts and positive thinking, in general, support brain growth, as well as the generation and reinforcement of new synapses, especially in your prefrontal cortex (PFC), which serves as the integration center of all of your brain-mind functions.  In other words, your PFC not only regulates the signals that your neurons transmit to other brain parts and to your body, it allows you to think about and reflect upon what you are physically doing. In particular, the PFC allows you to control your emotional responses through connections to your deep limbic brain. It gives you the ability to focus on whatever you choose and to gain insight about your thinking processes. The PFC is the only part of your brain that can control your emotions and behaviors and help you focus on whatever goals you elect to pursue. It helps you grow as a human being, change what you wish to change, and live life the way you decide


How I think like a leader. Achieving success requires the help of others. Trade minds with the people you want to influence. "What would I think if I were that person?" Be human, and put people first.


Courage is admitting that you're afraid and facing that fear directly. It's being strong enough to ask for help and humble enough to accept it.  Courage is standing up for what you believe in without worrying about the opinions of others. It's following your own heart, living your own life, and settling for nothing less than the best for yourself.  Courage is daring to take a first step, a big leap, or a different path. It's attempting to do something that no one has done before and all others thought impossible.Courage is keeping heart in the face of disappointment and looking at defeat not as an end but as a new beginning. It's believing that things will ultimately get better even as they get worse.  Courage is being responsible for your own actions and admitting your own mistakes without placing blame on others. It's relying not on others for your success, but on your own skills and efforts.  Courage is refusing to quit even when you're intimidated by impossibility. It's choosing a goal, sticking with it, and finding solutions to the problems.  Courage is thinking big, aiming high, and shooting far. It's taking a dream and doing anything, risking everything, and stopping at nothing to it make it a reality


A beautiful face will age, and a perfect body will change, but an awesome person will always be an awesome person

There's no need to strive to be perfect to inspire others. Let them get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.


Most of us are Only ONE thought away from CHANGE.Imagine...One thought away to FORGIVENESS. One thought away to ENLIGHTENMENT. One thought away to LOVE. One thought away to Peace-- JOY!A THOUGHT is inspired by an event.---Most often  quite random--impromptu--unplanned. AMAZING. Never loose Hope-for that event can HAPPEN at any moment.


You will notice that those who fear change and resist challenges, stunt their own growth.  Though they may blame others and situations for their circumstances, their biggest obstacle to tackle is themselves.  Difficulties are not the enemy. Embrace change, foster growth; make progress, not excuses.


Your life is your story.. write well, edit often and don't be afraid to start new chapters ..It doesn't matter what's been written in your story so far .. it's how you fill up the rest of the pages that counts Live and fill up those pages


You're never in the wrong place ..Sometimes you're in the right place looking at things in the wrong Way.You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.


WHEN THINGS GO WRONG- When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,When the funds are low and the debts are high,And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,When care is pressing you down a bit,Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns,As every one of us sometimes learns,And many a failure turns about,When he might have won had he stuck it out;Don't give up though the pace seems slow--You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than,It seems to a faint and faltering man,Often the struggler has given up,When he might have captured the victor's cup,And he learned too late when the night slipped down,How close he was to the golden crown. Success is failure turned inside out--The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,And you never can tell how close you are,It may be near when it seems so far,So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.


To make a difference in someones life, you don't have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care


Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. It’s easy to look at the abilities you lack and start to feel bad that you don’t know enough, or can’t do enough. This alone can be the start of a bad day, because once you start thinking like that it’s hard for anything else to go your way that day. But once you shift the focus to your long list of abilities, to all of the things you do know, and all of the things you can do, you start getting inspired rather than discouraged, and more things start to go your way. You’ll start playing to your strengths instead of wallowing in your weaknesses.takes a long time and sustained effort to learn a subject, to understand the basics, to appreciate its complexity. At some time in this often arduous journey one usually arrives at the point where one begins to understand the immensity of the subject and how ignorant one is about it. Expertise is accompanied with an acceptance that one is now in full view of one’s ignorance. No one is as acutely aware of his own ignorance as the expert. We are limited beings and comprehensive knowledge is denied to us. At best, given the right circumstances and the right capabilities, we get a glimpse of what lies out there. At best, we can learn a bit about some severely circumscribed aspect of reality. The most important lesson we learn is that we are really don’t know it all. We don’t really know much about anything compared to what is potentially knowable.So we learn to appreciate our ignorance of the subject when we attain some degree of proficiency in the subject. This is denied to those who have not attained a certain degree of expertise in any specific topic. To those who have put in the effort of mastering (to a certain degree) a subject, it becomes possible for them to appreciate that they themselves are totally ignorant of the innumerable other subjects. Learning any subject well teaches humility.This I think is one of the more important lessons one learns as one learns any subject deeply: that comprehensive understanding is not possible and therefore we are stripped of the fatal conceit that we know what is good, true and moral. Only the ignorant can maintain and entertain the illusion of knowledge; those who know know that they don’t know.The knowledge of their ignorance is not available to the ignorant. First order ignorance is not knowing something; second order ignorance is not knowing that one one is ignorant, that one does not know.Therefore I think that anyone in any position of power should learn some subject deeply. People in positions of power must study some aspect of reality in some detail so that they develop the appreciation of ignorance. If they don’t, they mistakenly believe that they know whatever there is to be known. Their conceit and their hubris is a side-effect, a natural consequence, of their inability to appreciate that they really don’t know.It really does not matter what the subject is as long as it is some aspect of reality ( and not some pseudo subject like astrology or palmistry.) One can study history, or psychology, or high energy physics, or anthropology — or even economics. At some stage of their intellectual development, the person will realize that their limited understanding is all that they are capable of. And thus come to understand that they are totally and irremediably ignorant of all the other subjects. This realization will prevent their falling into the trap, the fatal conceit, that they can rely on their own understanding. Then they will become capable of seeking the advice of those who know.The

1. Trust Me: 55 Ways to Build Trust and Credibility

By Honorable Buck Rogers [Conservative]
9/19/2019

Trust Me: 55 Ways to Build Trust and Credibility
1. It takes many years to become an overnight success.
2. Good intentions are just the beginning.
3. Your reputation is their first impression.
4. Show people that you care about their needs.
5. A promise should be as binding as a contract.
6. Never sacrifice a long-term relationship for a short-term gain.
7. Don’t expect people to look up to you if you look down on them.
8. Give credit where credit is due.
9. The danger of shooting from the hip is hitting yourself in the foot.
10. Be knowledgeable and remain current in your field.
11. Follow through on every commitment that you make.
12. Take the time to provide the rationale behind your recommendations.
13. Stay focused. Trying to be all things to all people is a guaranteed recipe for mediocrity.
14. Be objective.
15. Opinions held in secret never make a difference.
16. Never cut corners.
17. Stand up for the things that you believe in. (Waffles are for breakfast.)
18. Be a thought leader.
19. At the end of the day, you’re judged by the value that you provide.
20. Be straight with people. Tell it like it is.
21. Don’t be afraid to present bad news. It’s worse to sweep it under the rug. (People appreciate honesty.)
22. Remain calm, cool, and collected during difficult times.
23. Present both sides of an issue. (Let them judge for themselves.)
24. Be a good listener.
25. Disclose potential conflicts of interest.
26. Even a tiny exaggeration can destroy your credibility.
27. Once you make a decision, don’t look back.
28. Always tell the truth or the truth will tell on you.
29. Surround yourself with people who have a high degree of integrity.
30. Your actions “off-stage“ (i.e., at an office party or on Facebook) impact your trust and credibility.
31. Typos and grammatical errors loom larger than life.
32. Remain transparent. (You’ll never be faulted for communicating too much.)
33. Never ask someone to do something that you’re not willing to do yourself.
34. Reliable and consistent behavior on your part allows people to anticipate what you’ll do in the future.
35. Do what’s right, even if nobody is looking.
36. You are judged by the company that you keep.
37. Your actions must match your words.
38. Being an expert in one area doesn’t make you an expert in everything.
39. Admit when you’re wrong.
40. Don’t submit unfinished work as complete.
41. Never confuse quantity with quality.
42. Think before you open your mouth.
43. People who “hard sell” don’t always have the facts on their side.
44. You gain more by making others look good than by singing your own praises.
45. Trying to be excellent in everything leads to mediocrity.
46. “Everybody does it” is a poor excuse for doing it yourself.
47. Words spoken in confidence are words spoken in trust.
48. Learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.
49. Repeating a rumor is as vicious as starting one.
50. People will test you in small ways before trusting you outright.
51. The only thing worse than talking about others is talking about yourself.
52. Great talent means nothing if you’re not dependable.
53. Few people will fault you for being tough, if you’re fair.
54. It’s not only what you bring to the table but how you serve it.
55. REMEMBER, trust and credibility take years to develop but can be lost in seconds.

2. International Unity

By Honorable Buck Rogers [Conservative]
10/5/2019

I would like to break to the walls of ignorance between differents peoples and cultures

I am a firm believer in the people

Let each one of us build bridges rather than barriers, open minds rather than walls.

We can hold each others in same feeling

with our hands and lives,

let’s all push our hearts together...

to make a better place this world

let’s build bridges to each other

our lives are a bridge to us to give the oportunity to know each other

I want to build a better bridge in my heart

Together in a spirit of acceptance, helpfulness, co-operation and peace

from every wrong we’ve done to each other, if I forgive will you forgive?

Let's not let our anger.. do bad to our souls

I wonder

If i am different......you will accept me?

If i have another thought...... you're going to respect my opinion?

If we believe in the same God ,.

but we call him with a different name .

you will pray with me for peace and humanity?

With empathy we should tear down barriers by building lasting relationships with every person ,nation, or people.

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason

for the hope that you have with your fundamental human right to share our faith;

our lifes and our cultures .

But do this with gentleness and respect.” This must be our guide.

Remember always

Only love can build us a bridge of light to each other..

4. To Create Team Harmony

By Honorable Buck Rogers [Conservative]
8/8/2019

Are you the leader or just the boss? The leader of a symphony orchestra knows how to play every instrument. He also knows how those instruments blend together to create a symphonic sound. The leader of a choir knows every note that everybody has to sing, and knows how the voices and notes blend together to make harmony. They're actually called "conductors," but you know what I mean.

When you can take both of these leadership elements and put them together, you have symphonic harmony. You have a team that knows their individual talents, knows their individual notes, knows their lyrics, knows how to play and how to sing (and knows the timing of when to do both) – to create team harmony. And IF the leader is prepared, in control, and respected, the results can be spectacular.

If you're the leader of these people and these elements, it is imperative that you know how each player must perform, or you will fail. Same in sales. All sales leaders and bosses want their people to be a team. All salespeople resist it, because they just want to sell – but they often need other team member (accounting, production, shipping, service) to make it happen.

THE TEAM SECRET IS:

Everyone must know his or her own skill and know it perfectly. Until they know themselves, they can't play well or sing well with others.

THE LEADERSHIP SECRET IS:

Leaders must be able to extract the excellence of their people's performance and combine it with the excellence of their own performance. Often salespeople don't live up to their potential and don't do their best, or they make mistakes along the way. This is where leadership can make it happen, or break it down and continue with less than stellar performance.

THE LEADERSHIP REALITY IS:

If you're a real leader, you can't blame the players for poor performance. You have to be the teacher, the conductor, the coach, and the encourager. On the eve of a symphony performance, thousands of people pay to watch the orchestra AND the conductor perform. At the end there is usually thunderous applause, cheers of BRAVO!, flowers given out all over the place, and, at the urging of the conductor, members of the orchestra stand one or two at a time to bow and receive individual applause.

You, as the spectator (the customer), paid for and saw a one--‐hour performance. But the outcome was not determined by their performance that evening. The outcome was determined long ago when they were practicing. If they didn't practice, their performance would not have been acceptable.

Same with you. And the key is the message I'm trying to transfer. Leaders and orchestra members PRACTICED TOGETHER. It's the same in sales. You can't just be the boss or the manager. You also have to be the leader by example, and the coach who knows the game.

4. Fear
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
10/27/2019

Fear is nothing more than a lingering emotion that’s fueled by your imagination. Danger is real. It’s the uncomfortable rush of adrenaline you get when you almost step in front of a bus. Fear is a choice. Happy people know this better than anyone does, so they flip fear on its head. They are addicted to the euphoric feeling they get from conquering their fears.

When all is said and done, you will lament the chances you didn’t take far more than you will your failures. Don’t be afraid to take risks. I often hear people say, “What’s the worst thing that can happen to you? Will it kill you?” Yet, death isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you. The worst thing that can happen to you is allowing yourself to die inside while you’re still alive.

5. Appreciate Everyone
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
10/27/2019

When you believe that there is a purpose for everyone you meet, you will appreciate everyone. Some people will test you, some will use you, some will bring out the best in you. Whether good or bad, everyone will teach you something about yourself.

To replace the old paradigm of war with a new paradigm of waging peace, we must be pioneers who can push the boundaries of human understanding. We must be doctors who can cure the virus of violence. We must be soldiers of peace who can do more than preach to the choir. And we must be artists who will make the world our masterpiece.

6. Love
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]

Accept Yourself
January 2020

Love is not your problem. Your problem is that you have not been able to accept yourself, to stand on your own feet, to be respectful to yourself, to do something so that you can feel that you have some worth.
Your worth should be within you, not donated by somebody else. A borrowed worth is dangerous; the person can take it back. And this goes on happening in so-called love affairs. Only an independent person can love and can be loved. And love will not create any problem for him/her;)

Write Yourself A Love Letter In 10 Steps!
11/2/2019

The right words can express profound feelings of compassion, kindness, and love – especially when we direct them at ourselves. Take a moment on your journey to write a note reminding yourself just how much care and love you, too, are worth.

1. The letter does not have to be long – a few sentences will do.

2. Write as if you were addressing an old friend – speak in the third-person.

3. Begin with a strong statement of support – i.e. “You make me feel confident.”

4. Avoid phrases that feel forced – keep your tone authentic and grounded.

5. Describe admirable personal qualities – i.e. “You go out of your way to help.”

6. Describe character traits unique to you – i.e. “Your laughter brings happiness.”

7. List sincere hopes for the future – i.e. “I wish you courage in all adventures.”

8. Speak briefly about the place and time you are living in, marking this step in life.

9. Close with a note of gratitude – “I am sincerely thankful for everything you are.”

10. Sign, seal, and place it away somewhere. Read it again in 1, 5, 10, or 25 years.

Love is a potent force of good in this world. Love connects us to one another, brings out our best qualities, and, hopefully, allows us to find a bit of the divine within another soul. Love transcends the different spiritual traditions that separate us – and thus, many great teachers from diverse backgrounds have shared wonderful insights on the nature of love in our lives.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. Keep love close to the heart. When love is the driving force behind our actions, the possibilities for our future are limitless.

Drop hesitations. People come to me and they say they want to love, they hesitate; they want to meditate, but they hesitate; they would like to dance, but they hesitate. If this hesitation is there and you go on feeding it, you will miss your whole life. It is time: drop it! And nothing else is to be done: just become aware that this is just the way you have been brought up, that's all.
* * *

At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built; not what we got, but what we shared; not our competence, but our character; and not our success, but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love
* * *

We are born in one day
We can die in one day
We can change in one day
We can fall in love in one day
Anything can happen in just one day..if we let it

7. Just Me By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservate 1/1/2020

I am me just me, no matter my past endeavors. What you see is what you get. Take me as I am because the miles I've walked in life have made me who you know...
* * *


8. Opportunities

Opportunities in life are like the sunrise, If you miss it, You won't be able to see it again, So, grab the right opportunity coming your way
* * *

Remember - In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity! difficulties present opportunities. The difficulty of an unsolved math or science problem, for instance, provides the opportunity to solve the problem.

Another example could be from competetive running. The difficulty of facing another fast runner provides the opportunity to break records. It is very difficult to set a record unless you are challenged by someone else. The challenge of difficulty makes you run faster or think better.

Therefore, in the middle of difficulity lies opportunity.

9. Dreams

If you can dream it you can build it. If you can build it, you can live it.
* * *

Dreams are like stars
Enlighten our hearts
The road may be rough
We fall and we rise
The road may be long
But never get stuck
And never give up
Life is like a mountain
Just keep climbing
And think about one thing
The view from the top
Woman's dreams are big
She has different roles to play
A respectable lady, a lovely wife
A great mom, a successful woman
Being beautiful isn't enough
Be smart, be strong, be classy
Don't hide your feelings
Your vulnerability is your strength
Always value yourself
And do what is right
Pleasure is only temporary
Regrets last forever
You are more than a pretty face
Your values are what make you
Unforgettable...
Never lower your standards for anyone
Not even for love
Self-esteem is everything
A woman is like a diamond
Be rare, be precious...
The right path is not always the easiest
Just think of the view from the top
Men and women complete each other
Men are not your rivals
Together we can change the world
Together we can make the difference
* * *

There are dreams worth following and dreams worth chasing.. and then there are dreams worth growing wings and flying for .
There are galaxies within you .. you wear diamonds on the inside .. stardust swirls and dances in your soul .. with a powerful, beautiful light whispering to you ..
embrace it .. listen to it .. trust it
Live your passion .. follow your dreams
* * *

Take Your Time... Creativity Is In the Eye of the Beholder! Dreams are for dreamers, a popular song from the past explains. Who says what your dream turns out to be? Creativity is in the eye of the beholder; just like what is beautiful to one person has no effect on the next. Dreams come to reality when the dreamer paints the picture for others to see. That picture can be on canvas; paper; or a blueprint to follow. The results of the dream must be transformed for others to understand and commit to funding or partnering with the dreamer. A dream is personal and develops out of the mind of an individual. Take your time; and keep dreaming until you're done!

10. Prayer

I am nothing special, of this I am sure.
I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life.
There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've hopefully given back to society with all my heart and soul, and brought a bit of joy into people's lives..no one knows what goes on behind closed doors or what other people are going through in personal battles...but if for a moment there can by a ray of sunshine to lift the mood I've done my job..it is not only writing here but also giving back thanks to you the readers that get just as much pleasure as I do writing..You are all special..
God bless you

True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.

The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets..the prettiest eyes have cried the most tears..and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain

The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.
* * *

2019-11-15 13:01

Life has no smooth road for any of us. As we go down it, we need to remember that happiness is a talent we develop, not an object we seek. It’s the ability to bounce back from life’s inevitable setbacks. Some people are crushed by misfortune. Others grow because of it. Everything worthwhile is at first difficult.

Happiness is a choice. Life isn't about pleasing everybody.

2020-02-09 15:27

The past has no power over the present moment
Seek positive revenge by living well. Are you contemplating revenge? You know that’s negative thinking getting the best of you. However, there is a way to seek revenge positively....How? Forget about them. Remember you. Working on a better you is more fulfilling than hanging on to contempt of others. Let it all go and hold on to your growth and kindness instead. If you train yourself to consistently be more loving in thoughts and actions, your positive energy will attract more positive results into your current reality

Be unlike the person or situation that hurt you. Let go and grow past your pain. Carry on living well in a way that creates peace in your heart. The energy you would spend trying to get real revenge can be better spent creating an amazing future for yourself. The bottom line is that the best revenge is happiness, because nothing drives your adversaries more insane than seeing a fresh smile on your face

15. Women and men Are not equal
12/1/2019

Women and men Are not equal
But no one is superior No one is inferior They complete Each other
Like a puzzle Together, they are unstoppable
Women are sensitive And so emotional
The reason why They are special
Men are strong and realistic
The reason why They are awesome
Don't forget, your woman is unique
Show her your love and respect
Treat her like a queen
Spoil her with loyalty
Gifts and flowers Men too, deserve to be spoiled
Make your man feel like a king
Make him your priority And make every moment count
A life without women is unexciting
A world without men is boring
Both are indispensable
Both are amazing

16. Peace
12/3/2019

Peace in its broad sense does not mean the end of conflict and adversity only, but may require the establishment of a package of vocabulary, values, attitudes and customs based on full respect for the principles of sovereignty, fundamental freedoms and human rights, dialogue and cooperation among peoples and cultures, "Live and let others live." Meant that peace should be given to the people so that it could be acquired as a public case. Since peace is a blessing for the people, violence and wars curse, and what the peace is love and co-existence, wars are hostility and discrimination.

17. Truth
12/3/2019

Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.

18. Creating Your Own Reality
12/3/2019

Creating your own reality is something that you are doing right now, whether you are aware of it or not. The reality that you are currently experiencing is largely created by both the thoughts and beliefs that you hold, and the choices and decisions that you have made. The decisions that you make in the present are what will shape your reality in the future
Accepting this may be a bit difficult to do if you are less than thrilled with the current circumstances of your life. Many people find it easier to blame other people, life, fate, or anything else they can think of, rather than facing the fact that they are creating their own reality. However, this is a trap, because it is extremely dis empowering else is responsible for creating your current unhappy circumstances, then you are basically stuck with these circumstances until that person or force decides to change things for you. However, if you are willing to recognize that, in each moment you are creating your own reality - imperfect as it may be right now, you can begin accepting your own power to create a future reality that is more closely aligned with your ideals
If someone/something else is responsible for creating your current unhappy circumstances, then you are basically stuck with these circumstances until that person or force decides to change things for you. However, if you are willing to recognize that, in each moment you are creating your own reality - imperfect as it may be right now, you can begin accepting your own power to create a future reality that is more closely aligned with your ideals.
Whatever you believe with feeling becomes your reality.” In other words, if you truly believe that you can live a happy, powerful and loving life, there is nothing that can stop this becoming your experience of reality. If you do not have a heartfelt belief that you are able to live the life you desire, chances are very high that you are not experiencing that ideal reality
If you want to change your reality, change your beliefs. This can be done through the use of affirmations, life coaching, and various other tools and techniques. The main thing is to realize that you are creating your reality with the beliefs you hold. If you are not prepared to do what it takes to change those beliefs, your experience of reality is also unlikely to change
Everything you can imagine is real. “ If we heed these words, we can begin to see how we create our own happiness, or misery, with the imaginings that we allow to fill our minds. Are you allowing your reality to be shaped by imagined wonders, or imagined misfortunes?
Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.

19. THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD SIDE!
12/3/2019

THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD SIDE!
Be an optimist and try to see the opportunity in every misfortune, not a pessimist that sees misfortune in every opportunity. The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist sees the hole.
You can develop success from every failure. Discouragement and failure are two stepping stones to success. No other elements can do so much for you if you're willing to study them and make them work for you.View every problem as an opportunity. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
* * *


20. Trust Yourself
12/3/2019

There is no secret formula to success
Just trust yourself
Even if no one else does
And remember...
Originality is rare
Dare to be different
Embrace your values
And never lower
Your standards for anyone
Be ambitious
Follow your dreams
But take your brain with you
Never forget...
Right is right and wrong is wrong
Be a light in the darkness
Give hope to the hopeless
Be an epitome of kindness
That's what I call true success
It's not about money or power
It's all about making a difference
Touching hearts and changing lives

21. Unique Habits of Ridiculously Likeable people
12/8/2019

Unique Habits of Ridiculously Likeable people

Too many people succumb to the mistaken belief that being likeable comes from natural, unteachable traits that belong only to a lucky few—the good looking, the fiercely social, and the incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception.

When I speak to smaller audiences, I often ask them to describe the most likeable people they have ever worked with. People inevitably ignore innate characteristics (intelligence, extraversion, attractiveness, and so on) and instead focus on qualities that are completely under people's control, such as approachability, humility, and positivity.

These qualities, and others like them, describe people who are skilled in emotional intelligence (EQ). TalentSmart research data from more than a million people shows that people who possess these skills aren’t just highly likeable, they outperform those who don’t by a large margin. Ninety percent of top performers have high EQs, people with high EQs make $29,000 more annually than people with low EQs, and a single-point increase in your EQ adds $1,300 to your salary. I could go on and on.

Being likeable is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence. Unlike innate, fixed characteristics, such as your intelligence (IQ), EQ is a flexible skill that you can improve with effort.

To help you improve your EQ, I did some digging to uncover the key behaviors that emotionally intelligent people engage in that make them so likeable.

They are genuine. Being genuine and honest is essential to being likeable. No one likes a fake. People gravitate toward those who are genuine because they know they can trust them. It is difficult to like someone when you don’t know who they really are and how they really feel.

Likeable people know who they are. They are confident enough to be comfortable in their own skin. By concentrating on what drives you and makes you happy as an individual, you become a much more interesting person than if you attempt to win people over by making choices that you think will make them like you.

They ask thoughtful questions. The biggest mistake people make when it comes to listening is they’re so focused on what they’re going to say next or how what the other person is saying is going to affect them that they fail to hear what’s being said. The words come through loud and clear, but the meaning is lost. A simple way to avoid this is to ask a lot of questions. People like to know you’re listening, and something as simple as a clarification question shows that not only are you listening, you also care about what they’re saying. You’ll be surprised how much respect and appreciation you gain just by asking questions.

They don't pass judgment. If you want to be likeable you must be open-minded. Being open-minded makes you approachable and interesting to others. No one wants to have a conversation with someone who has already formed an opinion and is not willing to listen.

Having an open mind is crucial in the workplace where approachability means access to new ideas and help. To eliminate preconceived notions and judgment, you need to see the world through other people’s eyes. This doesn’t require you believe what they believe or condone their behavior, it simply means you quit passing judgment long enough to truly understand what makes them tick. Only then can you let them be who they are.

They don't seek attention. People are averse to those who are desperate for attention. You don’t need to develop a big, extroverted personality to be likeable. Simply being friendly and considerate is all you need to win people over. When you speak in a friendly, confident, and concise manner, you will notice that people are much more attentive and persuadable than if you try to show them you’re important. People catch on to your attitude quickly and are more attracted to the right attitude than what—or how many people—you know.

When you’re being given attention, such as when you’re being recognized for an accomplishment, shift the focus to all the people who worked hard to help you get there. This may sound cliché, but if it’s genuine, the fact that you pay attention to others and appreciate their help will show that you’re appreciative and humble—two adjectives that are closely tied to likeability.

They are consistent. Few things make you more unlikeable than when you’re all over the place. When people approach you, they like to know whom they’re dealing with and what sort of response they can expect. To be consistent you must be reliable, and you must ensure that even when your mood goes up and down it doesn’t affect how you treat other people.

They use positive body language. Becoming cognizant of your gestures, expressions, and tone of voice (and making certain they’re positive) will draw people to you like ants to a picnic. Using an enthusiastic tone, uncrossing your arms, maintaining eye contact, and leaning towards the person who’s speaking are all forms of positive body language that high-EQ people use to draw others in. Positive body language can make all the difference in a conversation.

It’s true that how you say something can be more important than what you say.

They leave a strong first impression. Research shows most people decide whether or not they like you within the first seven seconds of meeting you. They then spend the rest of the conversation internally justifying their initial reaction. This may sound terrifying, but by knowing this you can take advantage of it to make huge gains in your likeability. First impressions are tied intimately to positive body language. Strong posture, a firm handshake, smiling, and opening your shoulders to the person you are talking to will help ensure that your first impression is a good one.

They greet people by name. Your name is an essential part of your identity, and it feels terrific when people use it. Likeable people make certain they use others’ names every time they see them. You shouldn’t use someone’s name only when you greet him. Research shows that people feel validated when the person they’re speaking with refers to them by name during a conversation.

If you’re great with faces but have trouble with names, have some fun with it and make remembering people’s names a brain exercise. When you meet someone, don’t be afraid to ask her name a second time if you forget it right after you hear it. You’ll need to keep her name handy if you’re going to remember it the next time you see her.

They smile. People naturally (and unconsciously) mirror the body language of the person they’re talking to. If you want people to like you, smile at them during a conversation and they will unconsciously return the favor and feel good as a result.

They know who to touch (and they touch them). When you touch someone during a conversation, you release oxytocin in their brain, a neurotransmitter that makes their brain associate you with trust and a slew of other positive feelings. A simple touch on the shoulder, a hug, or a friendly handshake is all it takes to release oxytocin. Of course, you have to touch the right person in the right way to release oxytocin, as unwanted or inappropriate touching has the opposite effect. Just remember, relationships are built not just from words, but also from general feelings about each other. Touching someone appropriately is a great way to show you care.

They balance passion and fun. People gravitate toward those who are passionate. That said, it’s easy for passionate people to come across as too serious or uninterested because they tend to get absorbed in their work. Likeable people balance their passion with the ability to have fun. At work they are serious, yet friendly. They still get things done because they are socially effective in short amounts of time and they capitalize on valuable social moments. They minimize small talk and gossip and instead focus on having meaningful interactions with their coworkers. They remember what you said to them yesterday or last week, which shows that you’re just as important to them as their work.

Bringing It All Together

Likeable people are invaluable and unique. They network with ease, promote harmony in the workplace, bring out the best in everyone around them, and generally seem to have the most fun. Add these skills to your repertoire and watch your likeability soar!
* * *


22. Stand Beside Me Help me help the world. Our people of this world need our love and compassion right now. Ignoring them and the problems that exist will not change anything. Do not walk in front of me because I may not follow you, Do not follow me because I may not know where to lead us to, But stand beside me as my brothers and sisters against calamity so we might fight together for a common good for our peoples of earth
* * *


23. Your Plan Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.
* * *


24.
* * *


25. Be Strong Seriously, be strong and know when enough is enough. Take your stand, speak up and refuse to let others hurt you. Throughout your lifetime some people will discredit you, disrespect you and treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all. Don’t consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval. And don’t make any space in your heart to hate them. You don’t have control over what others think about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize their opinions. Leave them to their own judgments. Let people love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be.
* * *


26. Smile

DONT GET MAD..DONT GET EVEN..WALK AWAY AND SMILE..YOU ARE WORTH 10 OF THEM
* * *

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
* * *


27. Bully If you turn and face the other way when someone is being bullied, you might as well be the bully too.
* * *


28. Generosity Generosity does not always come from people who have plenty. Sometimes the ones with nothing give much more.
* * *


29. You are Strong You are strong, you are beautiful, you are smart, you are able. Never let anyone tell you what you are not.
* * *


30. Helping Others By CEO Buck Rogers 1/13/2020 It doesn’t matter who you are how much money you have or what your title may be. Helping others humbles you, makes you understand the reason for your very existence, why you were saved from events that could have tragically ended your life. The moment you help someone in need there will be a spark of an energy in your heart and mind that makes you feel as if you are walking on the clouds. YOU must EXPERIENCE it to know the feeling and when you do I hope you treasure it and keep on doing it because here is no greater joy in life than helping another human being in need.
* * *


31. Impossible

If they say it's impossible, remember...

They're saying it's impossible FOR THEM, not for YOU.
* * *

Impossible, two letters too long.
* * *


32. Joy

The ability to have fun does not have to relate to a time, place, action, or thing. It is merely your ability to find joy in the simplest things.
I believe so many people are angry now days about their personal situation. We all need to look at what we have and be thankfull for it. That is where happiness begins because you realize your life is not as bad as someone else who does not have what you do.
* * *

Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit.
Talk about your joys.
* * *


33. Time

Time is more valuable than money, you can get more money, but you can't get more time
* * *


34. Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing lasts forever I'm a big believer That life has its reasons Just like seasons Life changes Face challenges Always remember Age is just a number Character is power Mind is like a flower Nourish it daily To flourish fastly Fall in love with your life And deal with strife
* * *


35. Good and Bad

Life is a Mixture of both Good and Bad, it depends on how we take it and how we give it back... There's "hell" in hello, "good" in goodbye, "lie" in believe, "over" in lover, "end" in friend, "ex" in "next", & "if" in life... Life is Beautiful..
* * *


36. Good Relations

Sacrifice Is Greater Than Love,
Character Is Greater Than Beauty,
Humanity Is Greater Than Wealth…!
But
Nothing Is Greater Than Good Relations,
And Good Relations Don’t Necessarily Mean Finding Similarities…
Its Just About Respecting Differences...
* * *


37. Investigators Know

As ALL investigators know, "We are only as strong as our weakest link." Continuity is achieved through movement, not by keeping still, or quiet. True endurance is not based on rigidity, endurance implies movement, not immobilization. Stay active and know your weak spots. Endurance is fostered by inner constancy and external flexibility. Long-distance runners must adapt readily to changing conditions, with an inner determination and strength of purpose! ADAPT and ENDURE!
* * *


38. Risks

Take risks in your life.. if you win you can lead, if you lose you can guide
* * *

The biggest risk is not taking any risk. Life is a series of calculated risks – nothing more. Don’t wait to get it “perfect”, just start now.
* * *


39. Warrior

We must not be defined by what we do, but we must be what and who we are~~~then only happen to do what we do. The warrior only fights when there is no other choice, not for pride or to prove a point. Being a warrior is something that comes from inside you, something that originates in your spirit. It has very little to do with what you do for a living, whether or not one has great fighting skills, or whether or not they know their weapons. Of course developing good fighting skills and knowing how to use weapons are a major plus but that is not what makes a true warrior.
* * *


40.

Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.
* * *


41. Hope

The very Least you can do in your life is figure out What you Hope for; And the Most you can do is Live Inside that Hope; Not admire it from a distance, But Live Right in it, Under Its Roof.
* * *

Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.
* * *

To every broken heart
Where there's life there's hope
To every beaten soul
Where there's faith There's peace
Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain Laughter and tears Joy and pain
Emotions are always there.
Life is like a chess game To win you have to make a move Every move
must have a purpose Dare to take risks despite your fear Dare to fail,
fail to learn And learn to win You know, my dear My life isn't a
pearl That always shines I don't expect it to be easy I refuse to be
a victim.
I don't wait for life to bring me flowers everyday .
I create my own garden And decorate my life
I don't let my mind play tricks on me
Some days are storms Some days are diamonds
Are there diamonds without storms? Absolutely not! God is my strength
Hope is my anchor Courage is my bodyguard My tears are my prayers My
philosophy in life
After night comes day After death comes life
Autumn is the best proof
Never let despair get to your heart
Always let hope hold your hand Through every stage of life
Trust me dear, it's not the end Everything will be fine Please smile
And don't lose your fire
* * *


42. Positivity

Really it's not about being mad in life, but it is about creating a positive and successful lifestyle. Understanding the 7 protocols which are; failure is the start of something great, we need to go after what we want, always do as much as we can, help others, ask questions, let go of the past, initiate what we want to do in life and stop comparing ourselves to others....we are all individuals.

44. Keep Going Forward

Today remember to keep walking forward. Today if anything is trying to hold you back, give no attention to it. Get your hopes up, get your faith up, look up, and get ready to rise up. You will be met with many obstacles in life, but always know you are capable of great things.
Keep going on your path.Embrace who you are and your divine purpose.
Identify the barriers in your life, and develop discipline, courage and the strength to permanently move beyond them. Don’t spend your life wondering «what if» and worrying over something you have no control.
What’s done is done. Even small positive shifts in thinking, create huge results if you are consistent in your efforts.When the vision is clear, the results will appear. Keep your mindset positive as you work your plan, flourish, and always remember why you started. Looking backwards will cause you to miss out on new blessings ahead. Move on.
It’s up to you to keep on walking. Don’t stop believing,
Don’t be afraid of change,
Don’t underestimate yourself,
Don’t make excuses,
Don’t cheat yourself
Don’t ever ever STOP!

45. Friends are Precious

Friends are Precious~ Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods. When you’re finished contemplating the expanse of the universe, and how you fit within the context of providence, it then becomes necessary for you to remember that without family and friends, neither the wealth of a king, nor the wisdom of a thousand men would satisfy. Let these words serve as a reminder to appreciate the real riches of life..Rich men need friends most of all because being rich has no value unless have people to share it with. Not only that, but friendship can reduce risk. Should you fall on bad times you can seek refuge with your friends. That leads to poor men who can benefit from their friends in time of poverty and misfortune. Young men can benefit from friendships as sources of learning or mentorship (to “keep them from error”). Old people benefit from friends when their health fails. More importantly than all these fact, however, is that friendship stimulates you to noble actions. Joining with friends you are more able to think and act.

There is something special in the feeling of friendship that makes you want to act. You get a sense of joy from helping your friends even when it’s not a typically joyful task. Friendships improve our lives because they make us better people. In striving to serve our friends we improve ourselves.

49. Humanity

What makes people say you inspire them? It's never the outside package. Time is so short and there is little room for insincere connections in your day. Family, blood and mission, are paramount. In the richest kingdoms, the kings still eat and sleep. Humanity is not showing its better side lately. I've seen things I can't unsee. I've had conversations I can't forget. Give someone all the riches in the world and when they lose someone they love they hold no value. Rethink your humanity. Your essence. Your soul. Help someone tomorrow you would not normally have crossed paths with. Put down the latte and the smartphone and engage your humanity.
* * *


50. Life at Age 90

Imagine yourself 90 years old. On a porch in a rocking chair. Looking back on your life. You got that image? Good! Now let me tell you, studies show that the biggest regret from elderly people on their death bed is not what they did.... It’s what they didn’t do. The risks they never took. How sad would it be to get to the end of your life and realize you never truly lived. This is YOUR life. Nobody else’s. No matter how much society, your parents, your friends want you to live, the way they want you to live. YOU run the show. When you shut your eyes and go to sleep at night the entire world ceases to exist. And when you wake up it’s born again. This is your life! You’re in control. You gotta do what feels right in your heart.

**Don’t let anyone stop you from living your life! If your not happy, move on! Don’t let life pass you by! Life’s to short!**

51. Reading Your Eyes

TRUE RELATION IS Never hide your secrets from a person who can read your Eyes... Because the one who reads your Eyes is always expert in reading your Heart.
* * *


52. We Are All Human

No color, no religion, no nationality should come between us,..WE ARE ALL HUMAN
* * *


53. Change

And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.
* * *

We all know change is constant. It’s not a matter of wondering if things will change as much as when. Nothing in life stands still. If you hate change you might describe it as an assault. If you love it, you might see it as unexpected opportunity. Both viewpoints share one common truth: change, in and of itself, is not sufficient to produce growth.

Here are, according to me, the required ingredients to turn turmoil into opportunity

Be CURIOUS. You don’t have to be in love with what’s happening to come up with great questions. If emotions are getting in the way you might try to view the situation as a journalist. What would he or she need to know in order to formulate an interesting and fact-filled story?

Be HONEST. Being open and curious during times of change doesn’t mean you can’t say you hate what’s happening. When things suck, it’s ok to say so. The important thing is to understand what you are feeling and why.
* * *

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier You must be the change you wish to see in the world
* * *


54. Your Story

Every scar has a story. Don't be afraid to tell it.
* * *


55. Winners

Winners are not people who never fail
Winners are people who always try
To be better every day

Failure is not the end
It's a state of mind
Don't let it make you blind
Life is a continuous battle
You are a king without a castle
Fight and don't be fragile

Winners are not born
They are stubborn
To learn from the storm

Win or lose
Only you can choose
Courage or excuse
Be strong, be you
Don't wait for someone to come out of the blue Never forget, the real
battle is within you
Smile on through the rain
Smile on through the pain
Try again and again
Beat the devil, conquer fear
Never quit, always cheer
Life is a big deal

56. Persistence

Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.

57. I Alone

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples

58. Always Say How You Feel

ALWAYS TELL SOMEONE HOW YOU FEEL BECAUSE OPPORTUNITIES ARE LOST IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE BUT REGRETS CAN LAST A LIFETIME, NEVER REGRET ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE IT CANNOT BE CHANGED,UNDONE OR FORGOTTEN SO TAKE IT AS A LESSON LEARNED AND MOVE ON. DON'T EVEN REGRET KNOWING SOMEONE IN YOUR LIFE,GOOD PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU HAPPINESS, BAD PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU EXPERIENCE,WHILE THE WORST PEOPLE PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU A LESSON AND THE BEST PEOPLE,WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU A LESSON AND THE BEST PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU MEMORIES.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD,SMILE WITH THE SAD,LOVE WHAT YOU'VE GOT REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAD ,ALWAYS FORGIVE BUT REMEMBER, IF YOU REMEMBER A REGRET IS NOT WHEN YOU COULD NOT FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, BUT A REGRET IS WHEN YOU DO NOT START WHAT YOU COULD HAVE FINISHED. WHEN YOUR ACTIONS ARE BASED ON GOOD INTENTIONS OUR MINDS HAVE NO REGRETS.

REMIND YOURSELF THAT IT'S OK NOT TO BE PERFECT, A PESSIMIST SEES THE PROBLEMS IN EVERY OPPORTUNITY, AN OPTIMIST SEE THE OPPORTUNITY IN EVERY PROBLEM. REMEMBER THAT YESTERDAY IS THE PAST, TOMORROW'S THE FUTURE BUT TODAY IS A GIFT THAT'S WHY WE CALL IT THE PRESENT.

THE WORST REGRET WE HAVE IN LIFE ,IS NOT FOR THE WRONG WE DID, BUT FOR THE THOUSANDS OF RIGHT THINGS, WE DID ,FOR THE WRONG PEOPLE.! LIFE IS TO SHORT TO WAKE UP WITH REGRETS. BE KIND TO THE PEOPLE WHO TREAT YOU RIGHT AND FORGET THE ONES WHO DON'T. BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. IF YOU GET A CHANCE TAKE IT IF IT CHANGES YOUR LIFE LET IT. NOBODY SAID LIFE WOULD BE EASY THEY JUST PROMISED IT WOULD BE WORTH IT. IN THE END WE ONLY REGRET THE CHANCES WE DIDN'T TAKE.

I WISH FOR YOU COMFORT ON DIFFICULT DAYS. SMILES WHEN SADNESS INTRUDES. LAUGHTER TO FEEL YOUR LIPS,AND SUNSETS TO WARM YOUR HEARTS. FRIENDSHIPS TO BRIGHTEN YOUR DAYS, CONFIDENCE FOR WHEN YOU DOUBT YOURSELF, COURAGE TO KNOW YOURSELF. LET YOUR PAST MAKE YOU BETTER NOT BITTER. NEVER ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE DEFINED BY SOMEONE'S OPINION OF YOU!, THE ONE'S WHO SAY YOU WON'T ARE PROBABLY THE ONE'S WHO ARE SCARED THAT YOU WILL!!!!!!!!!!

.

EVERY GREAT DREAM BEGINS WITH A GREAT DREAMER, ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU HAVE IT IN YOU, THE STRENGTH AND THE WILL TO REACH FOR THE STARS AND CHANGE THE WORLD.

63. Pioneer of the Future

* * *


64. Enthusiasm

“Life’s blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed by the fire of enthusiasm.

Believe in yourself....When I first started exploring new opportunities to find the right direction in my life, I found myself overwhelmed by the competition. There were so many others just like me trying and doing what I was doing. And turning to my friends didn’t offer any respite, because instead of encouraging me to try new avenues, some of them brought me back to where I began. “Why don’t you be more pragmatic?

Feeding me with seeds of self-doubt, it took me some time to recover my momentum. And it was in the positive voices of so many others in blogs such as this, videos, and social media that I found encouragement to keep at it. It felt like they were talking about me. found the light inside of me to bring forward the resiliency that lay dormant. No longer suppressed by someone else’s ideas of the way things “ought to be,” I continued on my newly discovered path. The more I focused on my own voice and the voices of encouraging friends, the more I grew to believe in myself.

Although for some, finding the right direction might require the journey of a lifetime, I do believe that there is one direction that we are all meant to go: forward.

By taking small steps each and every day, putting aside over-thinking, and realizing that you have everything you need deep within, you can find the right direction in your life. And while it may not be the direction you expected, it will work out just fine.
* * *


65. Journey

Your journey is not the same as mine, and my journey, is not yours. But if you meet me on a certain path, may we encourage each other!
* * *


66. Meant for You

That which is meant for you will be for you. That which is not is as an ocean in the desert that evaporates into the Heavens and becomes the mist of the mountains high.
* * *


67. Love

The difference between like, love and in love, is the same as the difference between for now, for a while and forever.
* * *


68. Be Giving

Don’t be so stingy. No one is so poor that he/she cannot give anything. We can give our time, a smile, words of encouragement, experience, advise etc.

Some people use the phrase, "you can't give what you don't have" as an excuse to justify their not giving. But our problem has never been that we don't have what to give. Our problem is that we don't have love.

Love always finds a way. Love seeks to do what is right.

So my question to you is: even if you don't have, are you seeking?

Are you seeking other ways you can be a blessing to people?

Don't be so stingy that the only thing you give is excuses. And If you need, seek.

In summary, Be giving! Give advise, give love and give any other material or immaterial things.

This idea of giving can only be more perfected if you allow yourself to remain a team member.

Accept to participate in groups; where people share ideas.

69. Fifteen Ways to Be Happier

Been feeling down in the dumps lately? Sometimes when we’re unhappy, we get overwhelmed by the thought of everything we need to do in order to actually turn our lives around. At times like these, there is a better approach—a simpler one, an easier one.

Sometimes before you can make big changes to your life, you need to make small, simple changes that help lift up your spirits and refresh your perspective. Here are 15 simple things you can do to be happier today!

1. Exercise!
You don’t need to do a lot of exercise to brighten your mood—even just a few minutes a day can make a huge difference. When you work out, your body releases endorphins. Endorphins are natural painkillers and create a sense of euphoria. Even just taking a short walk each day can reduce stress, depression, and anxiety.
As a bonus, if you lose a few unwanted pounds along the way, you can look in the mirror and feel better about your self-image.

2. Get some sleep.
Seriously, how much sleep are you getting? With our hectic 9-5 lives, many of us settle for 5-6 hours or even fewer. After a while, that takes a huge toll on physical and psychological health. Force yourself to get 7-9 hours of solid zzzzz’s! You’ll notice a real boost to your clarity and mood.

3. Stop reading the news for a week.
Do tragic headlines about war, disease, and famine get you down? Do yourself a real favour and stop reading the news for a week. Exposing yourself daily to horrors you can do nothing about does nothing to empower you. Instead, focus on your own life and things you can change.

4. Count your blessings.
Sit down and write a list of things you’re thankful for. If it’s tough, just decide on a set amount. Pick 3, or maybe 5. Then think back to times in your life when you didn’t have those things. No matter what threats you’re facing now, at least you have those precious things you are grateful for.

5. Perform a random act of kindness.
Leave a 30% tip at the restaurant. Hand a homeless person $20. Send money to a stranger online who needs it. Smile and compliment someone who looks down. Not only will you feel great about making someone else happy, but this will remind you that sometimes someone does lend a hand—and maybe someone will be there to help you when you need it too.

6. Acknowledge your personal journey.
When you are having a hard time seeing how you’re going to achieve your next goal, just look back at how far you have come. Even if you’ve struggled, odds are you have persevered and accomplished things you never knew you would.
Don’t compare your accomplishments with other peoples’. Just acknowledge how great they were in comparison to the obstacles you overcame. If you did it before, you can do it again.

7. Take an afternoon to do something “unimportant.”
If you are constantly working on your to-do list, you are constantly under pressure.
Take an afternoon to do something you consider genuinely unimportant by any practical standards. Read that book you’ve been neglecting, watch that movie you haven’t seen in years, take a walk to enjoy the air instead of the exercise, or do something else simple and relaxing you’ve been neglecting.

8. Love and forgive your inner child.
Most of us carry around traumas from our younger years, especially childhood. If an adult in your life spent time blaming you instead of forgiving you, or invalidating you instead of encouraging you, forgive yourself in their stead. It is all right to love yourself—in fact, you have to love yourself to heal.
Take care of your inner child, and give yourself the permission to live out childhood dreams in any way you can. It’s never too late, no matter how much you’ve changed.

9. Allow yourself to fail and succeed.
It’s okay to make mistakes, and it’s okay now and again to not achieve your goals. The world doesn’t revolve around you, and you don’t control everything that happens in your life. Accept and forgive those failures you could not prevent. Likewise, celebrate your victories when they come, even if they seem small to you now.

10. Forgive someone who wronged you.
Forgiving someone does not mean saying they were right and you were wrong, or allowing them to continue being a part of your life if they are toxic. It doesn’t mean forgetting what they did either. What it does mean is that you are allowing yourself to release the burden of your pain and anger so you can move on with your life. It’s liberation for you and closure for them.

11. Remember the voices in your head aren’t all speaking the truth.
Each of us has plenty of voices in our heads telling us what to do each day, and what is true and what is not. Parents, spouses, siblings, friends, colleagues, religious figures, enemies, society at large—they’re all there. Sometimes they mean us well and sometimes they don’t.
Remember that even if you can’t shut them out, it doesn’t mean you have to believe them every time—or do whatever they say. Start honoring the voices that guide you toward happiness, and learn to ignore the ones that don’t.

12. Go outside.
Nature is beautiful! Take a breath of fresh air, and open up those shuttered windows in your mind. Let the dust drift off the rafters. Go outside for a walk or even just to sit and relax and listen to the birds. The tranquillity of nature reminds us there is a world outside our problems.

13. Remember to laugh.
Laughter releases endorphins just like exercise, so it’s a great mood booster. Even when you’re down it can work great—that’s probably why we sometimes laugh as a self-defense mechanism even when we’re scared by something.
Watch a silly comedy, or hang out with a friend who brings out your goofy side. Learn to let go. When we laugh at a problem, we are telling that problem that it is finite, and that it isn’t as huge or terrifying or insurmountable as it feels.

14. Call a friend.
Even if you’re an introvert and you need time alone to recharge, too much isolation is bad for you. Even if you don’t feel like talking to anyone, you could be surprised. That sense of closeness and camaraderie may be just what you need, and you never know what new perspective someone else can bring.

15. Do something you love.
All of us have responsibilities we don’t necessarily enjoy. Maybe you don’t like your job, or you have other obligations you aren’t crazy about. Don’t let any of it stop you from doing what you are truly passionate about. Even if you can’t do it full-time, even if people think you’re strange, even if no one understands—do it anyway in any way that you can.

Always remember that you decide the meaning, purpose and value of your own life, and no one else’s meaning or happiness can ever replace your own. So be true to yourself. You’re worth it.

* * *

You know the days when you just don’t want to work?
This is one of those days.
But I’m writing this, aren’t I?
Why?
To prove that yes, you can overcome writer’s block. And to prove that you can motivate yourself to work no matter what your deceptive brain says— even if it’s Sunday and all you want to do is go out (or watch Netflix).

Honestly though, I don’t always possess the mental fortitude to convince myself to work. Hence, am writing this article to find the solution to this problem.
Just imagine the possibilities. You can work effortlessly without nagging yourself to start. How much stress (and guilt) can we remove from our daily lives, if we did what we’re supposed to do?? If that were the case, we’d all be happy and productive people.
So, without further ado…

How to Get things Done (Even When You Don’t Feel Like It)

1. Getting Started When You Don’t Feel Like Doing Whatever You’re
Supposed to be Doing
Nike has solved this for us ages ago: Just Do It. In times like this, just ignore your feelings and do the work, be it exercising, writing your novel, or waking up early.
People think they need to feel motivated before they act, but the truth is motivation comes from doing. For instance, once you do 1 push-up, you’ll feel motivated to do more.

2. You’re Not Working Because You’re Overwhelmed… And Afraid Of Failing
This is common when you’re doing something new, exciting and big. The tendency to feel overwhelmed is high when so much hinges on your success.
There’s an easy way to snap out of this overwhelming feeling: don’t get hung up on the results!2 You don’t know what’s going to happen anyway. I suggest that it’s better to focus your time and effort on things you can control, those within your circle of influence, instead of things you can’t affect.
For your work, your circle of influence is limited to your hard work and attention to details. The results, whether your boss likes what you do or not, is out of your control so don’t dwell on it.

3. The Task Is Boring, Repetitive, Tedious, Or You Just Don’t Enjoy
Doing It At All
Your brain is wired to avoid pain and seek rewards at all costs, so you can’t convince yourself to do things by thinking, “Next time, I’ll wake up early so I’ll have time to do X.” If you actually had the willpower to do it, you wouldn’t wait ‘til tomorrow in the first place!
In my case, I always put off washing the dishes. If there are no more spoons, I’d use chopsticks. No more plates? I’ll use paper plates.
See, my brain is an expert in convincing me to delay these chores. Your problem task might be different but your brain works the same way in helping you find creative loopholes and lopsided rationalizations.
It’s easier to build a habit if you reward yourself for doing it. So I use a modified if-then plan with a reward to get these pesky tasks done.
Here’s my if-then plan for dishwashing:
If it’s Monday 11PM, I’ll wash the dishes and pans I used to cook the previous night then I’ll reward myself by watching 1 episode of a famous tv series
This method works because the decision has already been made in advance.
So when the time comes to do it, there’s no deliberation or second guessing. It also minimizes the demands on your limited willpower. But if that doesn’t work…

4. Do It With Friends
Remember your study groups back in college? You probably didn’t want to study for that calculus test, but hanging out with your friends made it a tad less miserable. It’s the same reason why gym buddies and diet groups work.
Whatever you’re trying to do, see if there’s a way you can do it with friends. If you’re working on a tough presentation due tomorrow, see if you can find colleagues planning on doing OT as well. So while you might be working on different things, at least you’re not alone in the office and you’ll have someone to commiserate with during coffee breaks.

5. If Step 1-4 Doesn’t Work
Put on a show. Public bets, or the prospect of getting humiliated in front of your friends is a powerful motivator. Just look at Ramit Sethi, who kept his goal and built some serious muscle thanks to a bet he made with his friends.
Make a commitment, come up with a consequence for failure, and then tag your friends on Facebook. Let’s see if you have the guts to slack off after that.

6. Stop Waiting Until You Have “Enough” Information
This is just a delaying tactic! How many times have said, “I know it’s time to start X, but I don’t have enough research yet,” even if you already have tons of information on hand?
Honestly, it’s impossible to collect every single bit of information on any subject. And chances are you have enough to get started—not everything, but enough to start and just correct-course along the way.
If you’re still hesitant to start, remember that Sir Richard Branson didn’t know about aviation when he built Virgin Airlines.

7. Take The First Step
You’re procrastinating for no reason. We all have those days, right?
In this scenario, you can convince yourself to work if you do the first and tiniest step that will move you in the right direction.
If you have to work on a project, just open the document and type one sentence. Then give yourself permission to take a break. Seriously!
Congratulating yourself for starting will encourage you to keep going, and minimize that guilt you feel. Besides, the first step is always the hardest, so making it easy to overcome that hurdle will make the succeeding steps much easier.

8. Bribe Yourself
Money talks, people! A 2009 study by behavioral economist Dr. Gary Charness found that you can double a person’s gym attendance by paying them $100.
Don’t have $100 to spare? Try Pact, an app that pools money from other users, and then pays (or penalizes) based on their progress. Cheating doesn’t work by the way, because the app uses GPS and pictures to verify your activity.
For work related projects, you can use 21Habit, where you pledge $21 for a 21-day commitment challenge. Every successful day earns you $1 back, while every unproductive day forfeits $1 to one of their chosen charities. This app is perfect for random tasks and critical projects you keep putting off, like starting your own blog, reaching out to a potential mentor, or automating your finances.
Lastly, don’t beat yourself up if you really can’t force yourself to work. It won’t help because the guilt you’re inflicting on yourself just adds up to your mental image of being a non-performer.
Just breathe and try these suggestions one by one, until you get the ball rolling. Don’t pay much attention to your progress. The main thing is you are trying

82. Forgiveness

Forgiveness
By Buck Rogers

May all beings have forgiveness in their hearts!
May I have forgiveness in my heart for anything I think I've done wrong.
May I forgive myself for what I think were all my past omissions and commissions. They are long gone. I understand that I was a different person then and this one is forgiving the one that I was. May I feel the forgiveness filling me and enveloping me with a sense of warmth and ease.
May I forgive my parents for anything I have ever blamed them for. May I understand that they, too, are different now. May this forgiveness fill them and surround them, and may I know in my heart that this is my most wonderful way of togetherness.
May I forgive my nearest and dearest people for anything that I think they have done wrong or are doing wrong at this time. May they feel that I accept them. May that forgiveness fill them, realizing that this is my expression of love. May I forgive my friends for anything I have disliked about them. May my forgiveness reach out to them so that they can be filled with it and embraced by it.
May I forgive the people I know, whoever they might be, for whatever it is that I have blamed them for, for what I have judged them for, or for what I have disliked. May my forgiveness fill their hearts, and surround and envelope them with it, and let it be my expression of love for them.
May I forgive fully any special person towards whom I still have resentment, rejection, or dislike. May I remember that everyone is suffering. May this forgiveness come from my heart and reach out to that person completely and totally. May I forgive any one person, or any situation, or any group of people, whom I am condemning, blaming, or disliking. May my forgiveness be my expression of unconditional love.
They may not do what I think are the right things.
May I remember that all human beings are suffering and that my heart needs forgiveness in order to have purity of love. May I look again and see whether there's still anyone or anything anywhere in the world that
I blame or condemn. May I forgive them so that there is no separation in my heart.
May I put my attention back on myself and recognize the goodness in me and the effort I am making. May I feel the warmth and ease that comes from my forgiveness. May all beings have forgiveness in their hearts!

You Are Special
By CEO Buck Rogers
2020-02-03 19:35

Who are you? What makes you special? For some people, this can be a great source of anxiety and stress. But being special doesn't just mean being exceptional, or being "better" than others at some task or ability or skill. Being special means being respected. Being loved. If you want to stand out from the crowd and be recognized as a special person, you can learn to start developing your inner self, giving it the respect it deserves. You can learn to stand out and make yourself a memorable, special person, who deserves the admiration of others, and the admiration of yourself.

How to Be Special

1

Find your you. No one can tell you how to be special. Being special involves finding the unique inner core that radiates your "you-ness" and doing the work of building that core up. Whatever you want to call it–your soul, your essence, your chi, your mojo, your groove–you have to embrace yourself, define yourself, and build yourself up. It takes work. What does it mean to be you? Who are you? And how can you be the best version of yourself? These are questions and struggles that take up a whole lifetime. Keep in mind the following thought experiments to get your mind oriented to your inner you-ness:

When do you feel completely at ease? What makes you comfortable?

Describe your ideal day. What would it include?

What do other people praise in your work or your behavior? What do you do well?

Describe a recent disagreement you've had with someone or something. How did you differ?

How would you change yourself if you could? Why?

2

Make a list of your values. Knowing what your values are can help you to be more of an individual and to live in a way that will make you happy. Take some time to think about what your values are and write them out. Then, reorganize the list from most important to least important. Some things you can do to help you generate this list include thinking about when you were:

At your happiest. For example, if you felt happiest when you were surrounded by supportive friends and family, then healthy relationships would be one of your values.

Proud. For example, if you felt proud when you graduate high school, then education might be something you value.

Satisfied and fulfilled. For example, you might feel satisfied or fulfilled after a productive day at work, so hark work might be something you value.

3

Identify special characteristics in others. What does it mean to be special? Look at the people you think are exemplary, notable, or special in some way and identify the key characteristics that make it so for you. You might think people who stick up for themselves stand out in your mind as being special, or people who devote themselves fully to their work, or people who are reserved and stoic in the face of adversity. This will be different for all of us, so focus on figuring out what it is that you respect about your grandfather, your close friend, or a loved one, not what other people say.

Try to stay away from celebrities and stick to looking at people you know in real life. It's easy to identify superficial things, to say that Brad Pitt is special because he's so rich and good-looking, but it's hard to identify or even know the true core of his person. We can only see the public persona, which radiates artificial movie-star prestige, not the real person.

Focus on how other people’s characteristics resonate with your own core values and avoid focusing on superficial things. Being special is more about knowing who you are at your core, not from what you think other people are like.

Authority doesn't make someone more special. If someone has power over you, is more successful than you, or is well-known and respected, that doesn't mean that you need to emulate them.

4

Take off your masks. We all wear them. When you go to work, you might have a professional mask, and when you meet up with a date after work you might switch into your dating mask. When you're with your friends, you might wear one mask, and when you're with your family, you might wear another. Once you go about the work of identifying the things that make you truly you, these masks become less useful. If you want to be special, let us see what's behind the mask.

To figure out you relationship to your masks, try to think of a time that you felt you were being fake, or inauthentic. What were the circumstances? How did it make you feel?

Check out your Facebook and Twitter feeds for a good example of digital masks in progress. People want to project images of themselves for others to digest, crafting that image in a particular way. It's inauthentic, in most cases. You're not getting the "real" version of someone.

5

Keep your ego in check. A desire to be special is often a desire to be validated by others. We want to be respected, to be looked upon as successful, happy people who should be envied. But being special doesn't mean being exceptional at everything. It doesn't mean being the best tennis player, or the author with the most publications, or the richest lawyer at the law firm. It means being true to the authentic you-ness and staying true to your own integrity. Satisfy yourself, don't use the satisfaction of others to inflate your ego.

Psychologists will often refer to inner and outer locus of control. Someone with an inner locus of control finds satisfaction from within, looking to satisfy themselves with their work and actions. People with outer locus of control look to others for satisfaction. Which are you?

Avoid seeking validation from other people. Your own validation is all that you need to be special.

6

Surprise yourself. People who are truly special are always changing, shifting, and surprising themselves with their ability to grow as people and to develop their authentic inner selves. If you want to be special, identify a rut that you've been in, and try to get a fresh perspective on it.

Keep learning new skills, reading new books, and challenging yourself. You're never too old, too smart, or too experienced to have your preconceptions shaken. You're never too special to be wrong.

85. Rich and Without

We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.

86. Time Is More Powerful Than You
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
2/2/2020

"When a bird is alive it eats ants..when the bird is dead ants eat the bird!
Time and circumstances can change at anytime..dont devalue or hurt anyone in life.
You may be powerful today..but remember..time is more powerful then you.!!
One tree makes a million match sticks , but when the time comes, only one matchstick is needed to burn a million trees.. so be good and do good..."
* * *


87. Keep Trying
By CEO Buck Rogers
2020-02-02 00:58

Keep trying! Keep reaching! Keep dreaming! Be patient! Your day will come!
Don’t let the reality of life destroy your dreams. Don’t give up.
You owe it to yourself to never let go of your dreams, goals or hopes.
They give meaning to your life. That is why you’ve held on to them for so long. You know you’ve tried your level best and put up the best fight anyone could ever have asked of you. Even when your closest supporter, shows loss of belief in you, and even walks away, don’t let it stop your fight. Keep going till you succeed. Otherwise you have suffered, and struggled for nothing. Stick to what you are trying to do.
After spending the time you have already, suffering from whatever pain it has brought, it would be such a waste to just give up
So, be brave, keep fighting, hold on to your dreams and never give up ever in life! Keep going until you win. Not giving up ever in life must be what you stand for. Success comes to people who have the courage to keep going no matter the obstacles. Life is a test, a tough one, sometimes. And you got to get through it. Sometimes you feel lost.
Doubts and negativity cloud the mind. Just don’t give up. Better times could just be around the corner, so you must keep fighting for just a little longer

89. Looking Better
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
2/1/2020

"People like to bring up your past when your present and future look better than theirs."
* * *


90. Winning

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence
* * *


91. Truth

💔I never want to be in an environment or around people where I can't say what I think is the truth. Nothing repels me like dishonesty in a person. Simply because when you lie to the world, you are also lying to yourself. And that kinda sets you on a very wrong path to claim your destiny. I know that, When you act truthful, it comes off as controversial to most people. It is kinda a price you pay for being yourself. That is why I tend to move towards truthful people because I am repulsed by lies. Be very careful in life because any story you start with a lie will always end you in shame. Will you stand for the truth? Will you defend the truth? I am much about honesty and truth.
* * *


92. Problems

Problems are opportunities in work clothes
* * *


93. Lessons

It is funny how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn't live without, and then we fall in love with what we didn't even know we wanted.

Life keeps leading us on journeys we would never go on if it were up to us. Don't be afraid. Have faith. Find the lessons.
* * *

94. Be Strong

You must be strong. You must continue. No matter how high you must climb. Giving up is not an option. All your life you tried. It isn't much further to the top of that crest. Keep your faith. Keep your dream. You will reach them. Where the sun chases the moon.
* * *


95. Purpose to Serve

Find a purpose to serve, not a lifestyle to live.
* * *


96. Nothing Goes Away

Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.
* * *


97. Leadership = Results

He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander. —Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily, even if you had no title or position". —Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes"
* * *


98. Greatness Within
CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
1/29/2020

"How do you keep your head up, maintain your laughter and keep going when life comes at you..fast and hard? One of the most important things you can do is to ask yourself the question ~ What are you looking at?

Today - focus on what can be and what will be... in spite of the odds, despite your present situation, or regardless of the circumstances. Be still and know that...with faith, patience, perseverance, and an unstoppable spirit...things WILL get better. Stand up within yourself and KEEP ON PUSHING. You have comeback power. You have GREATNESS within you!"
* * *


99. Plan Life
CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
1/29/2020

I am not a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions
As a matter of fact, our circumstances are largely the product of the decisions we make on a day-to-day basis. Each decision accumulates, adding to each previous decision, to construct those very surroundings we operate within. If you hate your job, all you need to do is trace history to the point you prepared or chose not to prepare for something else. You either looked for other jobs or you didn’t. You spent thousands of hours over years in search of better work or you spent more time watching TV over that same period. You used every moment of spare time to educate yourself and learn new skills to make yourself more marketable or you chose to do something else instead.
The point here isn’t guilt. It’s about responsibility and dropping the victim mentality. There are very few exceptions to the rule that we are the products of our decisions. The very young who are trapped in abusive relationships, prisoners to parental terror, would be such an exception. But even with that past, as adults we choose to heal or to live in the past, to seek help or remain trapped in our own histories.
You can seek therapy and self-help and religious answers to life’s difficulties or booze and drug yourself to temporarily medicate the pain. Even with the ugliest of pasts, there are choices, at least as adults
All of life is an ever-evolving reflection of those choices . The decisions we make lead us down a path that will eventually become the history we regret or the history we celebrate. The more we recognize that fact, the more likely we will think through each decision and plan a life that can be beautiful and richly rewarding and wildly celebrated
* * *


100. Those Who Talk

There are those that do and there are those that talk about what they know how to do
* * *


101. Circle Together

In the circle we are all equal. There is no one in front of you and nobody behind you. No one is above you; no one is below you. A circle is sacred because it is designed to create unity.

Connecting with others through the warmth of human hearts .. we look behind, filled with gratitude .. and look forward, filled with vision .. we turn to each other, with strength and .. turn within, to find peace ..

In a circle, we are sometimes leading, sometimes following .. always strong.
* * *


102. Wisdom

Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.
* * *


103. Claim Your Destiny

Stop listening to people saying you can't do it. Your potential is greater than your problems & your problems will bring out your potential. Start to be uncomfortable with where you are & step out in faith & chase the life you want.

Risk something & you will get everything out of life. Refuse to stay in your comfort zone. If you never step out & take the risks, you will record no achievements.

Stop over thinking, stop worrying, stop complaining. Life is too short for all of that. Work hard with faith, smile, live, love to claim your destiny!

You should become what you want to be in life.
* * *


104. Be Humble

For the world is a hard place and hearts can be harder. But if you walk in humility, it will be a kinder place. The world you make for yourself is the heaven or the hell that you walk in. So treat every step as a prayer. Every breath as a blessing. Always be grateful. The journey is a short one. Savor every moment. The good and the bad. That is your Human experience. So, always remember to be Humble.
* * *


105. Attitude

Weakness of attitude can become weakness of character
* * *


106. Opinion

Another person's opinion of you may not be a reality.
* * *


107. New Storm

And the storm will soon come. With it the solice of all stillness. So we wait. And look to future suns and birds of song when the warmth and beauty of newbirth returns. With it, new possibilities of oneness and completion. Change and ressurection of a new cycle, new Spirit, new life.
* * *


108. Things you can not recover in life.

1. A stone after its thrown
2. A word after it is said
3. An occasion after its missed
4. Time after its gone
5. Trust after its lost
* * *


109. Marriage

Marriage is a big deal
This could be heaven or hell
It is not a lack of love
But a lack of understanding
Over time you start noticing
That your marital ship is sinking
It really made me wonder...
How to make a relationship last forever?
When marriage becomes a perfect lie
When a mask is a must...
When parents stay together "for the kids"
Sometimes, marriage is a complex equation
The minute you think of giving up
And you remember the reason
Why you hold on for so long
That's all that matters to you...
Sometimes it's not the people who change
It's the mask that falls off...
Marriage is not all roses and rainbows
It's a sacred bond between two people
Who refuse to give up on each other
And embrace the beauty of flaws
It's a two-way street...
So is love, just like a flower
Either you make it bloom or you ruin it!
If you want, you can make your marriage
More awesome than your wedding
It's all about the one who calms the storm
Finally, a happy marriage is a daily choice
It's not about romance, it's not just love
It's sacrifice that makes it work
* * *


110. Hearts United

Hearts united in pain and sorrow
will not be separated by joy and happiness.
Bonds that are woven in sadness
are stronger than the ties of joy and pleasure.
Love that is washed by tears
will remain eternally pure and faithful
* * *


111. Build You Up

In life you will meet two kinds of people.
Ones who build you up, and ones who tear you down.
But in the end, you will thank them both.
* * *


112. Take Action

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action
* * *


113. All Human

We were all humans until race disconnected us, religion separated us, politics divided us, and wealth classified us.
