It didn't happen to you

We all experience situations that leave us at our wit's end.

 If you haven't, life has a way of humbling you from time to time. Look forward to it. I'm not trying to scare you here, this is just part of the process. The process of your life's plan unfolding. The process of you becoming better. The process of you overcoming.

Thing is, troubles and circumstances you experience are part of your plan. These situations are in place to create in you a spirit of perseverance and unshakable faith. We aren't certain of what our plans contain, but we can be certain that our life's plan will be prosperous. If you carry that thought process a little farther, every situation is helping you get closer to prospering. One of my favorite authors wrote "In every adversity, there's a seed of equal or greater benefit." Every circumstance, good or bad, is there for you to benefit from. 

In adversity, it's easy to get overwhelmed with emotion and temporary defeat. It's easy to ask "why me?" instead of "why not me?" It easy to give an excuse instead of continuing to pursue your passion. It's easy to stay down if you've fallen. There is an easy way out, but you don't take the easy way out. You scratch and claw until you've accomplished what you set out for. 

It's not over until you win. 

In all things give thanks. 

It didn't happen to you, it happened for you..

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

Massive Equifax Breach: What you need to know to protect yourself

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
