Now I Feel Better

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

After hearing this 34 sec. news clip I feel better

about myself.

I heard my first motivational tape about 45 years ago and I admit that it got me fired up. That is until I did a little digging and this self made millionaire (that was big 54 years ago) actually made his millions by marrying an automotive tycoons daughter.

That turned me off permanently to "How to make millions" business gurus.

Now to be fair I love quotes by Zig and others but only those quotes that I can apply to my faith. Taking that one step further I do not acknowledge self-help in my personal faith as my faith is totally reliant on a redeemer who makes me acceptable to my higher power. If you would like to know more please feel free to contact me directly as opposed to through this form.

As for me, I don't have self-help issues as my wife tells me all I need to know to get by on any given day. Yes, Dear lets her know I heard her. As for the 2,000,000 it should happen some time this week, especially if you do a little commenting

Well the good news is this, most business advice, most business and motivational gurus are using contemporary language to teach lessons found in the bible. Most of the pre-2000's generation of "gurus" and authors are doing exactly that. Men like Zig were men of faith too, so guys like him were the real deal.

I think you can make it before the end of the month.  Wondering if I'll ever see half a million myself.

Sometimes I wish my wife kept a tighter rein on me Ed Silva as she often lets me jump right into stupid ideas. Thanks for the LOL and the points.

Of course you will Don Baker . I jumped in and then I was very relaxed for a couple of years before I decided that AR was truly worth my time and attention.

Will do Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 as I love the Active Rain contests and this months looks pretty good as long as all that info doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Here are a few more points, Bob... as for self-help books and tapes... I never put any faith in them and avoid them totally.

2,000,000 is no laughing matter RealMan. I will have to agree with John Houseman and state "you've earned it."

Good afternoon Bob,

The motivational speakers were like high school, give me the book, let me read it, and then give me your test!

Make yourself an awesome day.

P.S. I also found the time to pull the boots up, were in the barnyard!

Dear Bob,

If you want to make a million dollars, the best advice I can give is to start with three million. Maybe we can write an advice book about that slick trick. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in your life.
