This is where the journey begins to live your dreams, achieve your everyday freedom and to start enjoying your life more as we were all meant to do!
Today is the day of Pentecost also known as the Feast of Weeks.
In the Old Testament it was the day the Ten Commandments were given from God
through Moses to the Children of Israel. This was the beginning of what is known as the Old
It is also the Day that the Holy Spirit was given to the followers of Jesus the Christ
(Yeshua HaMashiach) and the beginning of the New Covenant Church.
You can find out more about what happened on that day in the Bible in Chapter 2 of Book of Acts.
For those that like movies and quick info – Below there is a Music Video by the Newsboys and
a less that 5 minute message and demonstration of God’s Mighty Rushing Wind by Angus Buchan:
May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Bless You and Yours
with Love, Peace, Healing & Freedom to the Captives.
In Messiah’s Mighty Name – Amen
What is the Purpose of Business?
Why have a Business?
“The Purpose of Business is to CREATE and KEEP a Customer” –
Peter Drucker is claimed to be one of the most influential business thinkers that ever lived.
Pretty simple, but that statement is very Powerful!
That one sentence cuts right to the main reason for your business.
Creating a Customer is Marketing
Keeping a Customer is Giving Value
Those two things are the most important things to have a successful business.
If you are a great marketer and are excellent at driving traffic with the latest strategy or software
of the week, but don’t have great products and support – you won’t sell anything.
On the other hand if you have the BEST Product with wonderful customer support, but you don’t have the Traffic bringing folks to the product no one will know about it.
If no one knows you’re out there that means NO Sales.
No Sales = No Money
Okay so What is the Balance?
You have to have a balance between Marketing and having a Product.
If you just focus on getting traffic to your offer you’ll soon see your sales slowdown
because it will becomes more difficult to keep finding new customers.
And If you just focus on creating a great product –
You will probably never really get your business up and running.
That is what makes beginners frustrated and then they start to think that there’s no way
anyone actually makes money in information publishing – and they quit before they’ve even started.
So what do you do? Go back to your Day J.O.B. – hating those that stuck with it
and succeeded thinking they must have had some magic trick that you didn’t?
There is no magic tricks and no real secret. It is just a matter of balance and sticking with it,
learning and adjusting as you go learning the things that work and the things that don’t.
Here is an example of the balance and how to apply it:
- Spend the mornings Creating a Customer (that means work on getting traffic to your site or offer).
- Then spend the afternoons on focusing on Keeping a Customer (you can do that by creating relationships thru coaching folks, making a Face Book Group, having Google Hang Outs, etc.).
By splitting your day into those 2 different parts helps you maintain
a specific focus and the proper balance needed to succeed.
May be you still have a Day J.O.B. and your time to build your own business is limited.
If you only have 2 hours a day to work on your business then spend the first hour on marketing/traffic
and the second on keeping your customer with great products, support and building the
Know, Like & Trust Factor with folks.
Re-Read Peter Drucker’s quote once again and then
Make sure that you are spending your day on those two things related
to either creating or keeping a customer.

You live what you think. You become what you say.
That is why it is important to say the right things and sometimes we have to make a deliberate effort to do so through Positive Affirmations
This is where you make declarations that are positive about You.
Remember yesterday’s quote from Napoleon Hill -
THE MIND OF MAN
Norman Vincent Peale knew this when he wrote his classic book –
“The Power of Positive Thinking”
You could read it as part of putting positive thoughts into your mind.
DEVELOP THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING – THINK THE RIGHT THOUGHTS by:
– Exposing your mind to the right things.
– Reading the right books.
– Listening to the right music.
– Watching the right movies.
– Associating with the right people.
This Next One IS VERY IMPORTANT –
Stay away from negative people – they will drain you of your energy
and bring you down with them. Avoid them like the plague!
Anything that is not in harmony with your dreams and desires – throw out.
Weed it out of your mind just like you would a garden.
Continually work at it and you will develop a beautiful mind.
You will develop a mind that will deliver to you the power of positive thinking
and all the lovely things that go with it.
Ready to take the next step?
The Power of positive thinking – Believe in Yourself and in your abilities.
If you truly desire to live your dreams you need to take stock of your worth.
Once you are sure that your dreams are in harmony with your worth
and your deepest convictions, you need to talk your dreams into reality.
It’s all up to YOU. YOU are in charge of your destiny.
YOU CAN Do It!

There is so much bad stuff going on in this big old world and we can get very down with all the Bad News.
And now with modern technology we not only have to contend with the local news, but get to hear and see in Real Time all the tragedies. And of course with the Media going on the idea that,
“Bad News Sells.” they focus mostly on these kinds of thing competing with other Media companies seeing who can depress you the most and the fastest.
I got enough bad stuff going on in my own little world.
I won’t bore you with the tons of studies that show watching the news and reading negative stuff just brings you down and depresses you. It gets our mind focusing on the negative and the shapes our overall outlook.
We got to just lighten up. So let’s change that RIGHT NOW!
We have the Power to Do That!
So how do we turn that around?
We got to start focusing on GOOD Things and like the Media Bombard ourselves with thoughts, visions, speech, and actions that are Positive and that make us Smile and Happy!
Sounds silly maybe – but we really don’t need to complicate things. It really is that simple!
I remember growing up reading the “Laughter is good medicine”
in the Readers Digest. It still to this day brings a smile to my face just thinking about all the interesting, funny and positive stories and jokes found there.
Besides looking for Good Stuff to Put In our Mind –
STOP watching the Bad Stuff!
Really if there was something Life Threatening to you personally You would find out about even without watching the News or Looking Online for the latest disaster.
Now advertisers know how to program you to BUY their Stuff.
What I recently noticed was how with our modern media and technology they present scenes and music that get you involved and make you tap you toes or bounce in your seat and maybe even sing along. Okay granted NOT ALL do that – some just plain stink and you come away wondering if they were advertising for a prostitution ring, drug dealer (don’t get me going on Pharmaceutical companies) OR you watch the whole thing and ask, “What are they selling?” Enough said on that.
So today here is a fun video I want to share:
(Yes I know it is an ad for water, just enjoy the video.)
Now Doesn’t that make you just want to start to Dance Young ?!
Part of my Freedom is that I have been blessed to live in a land where Freedom to Worship is part of our Nation’s Constitution.
Amendment 1 – Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Now How Awesome is that!
So for today I wanted to shard Two (2) videos about Freedom.

Money can’t buy…the power of dreams!
Today I don’t have anything to sell you…so take a deep breath and relax.
But what I want to give you is something money can’t buy…the power of dreams.
As entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs most of us all have one thing in common: we’re dreamers!
We day dream constantly, fantasize about things we want to own, places we want to go, and so on and so forth.
Non-entrepreneurial types might scold us for being such dreamers & even tell us that it’s a waste of time & yada, yada, yada.
Dreaming & fantasizing about where you want to go in life is perfectly healthy,
as long as it’s done in moderation.
As a matter of fact, I want you to actually write down a few of the things you’d like to have most in this world.
Once you’ve written them down take a close look because you’ve just identified a few of your long term goals.
In order to reach those long term goals we’ll also have to “dream” up a few short term,
and more easily achievable goals.
These short-term goals should be related to your internet business.
I.E. – “Build an email list of 3,000+ responsive double opt-in subscribers in the next 3 months.”
Or, “create a new membership site with a recurring revenue of $500 per month.”
You get the idea, right?
Now go ahead & jot down a few of your own short-term business goals.
Don’t go too easy on yourself with these short term goals, they should still be a challenge.
But on the same token, don’t make them overly difficult & set yourself up for failure.
P.S. Now get started or your car is going to get hit by a asteroid on the freeway
while you are stuck in rush hour traffic.
