Dessert

If you know me, you know I relate everything to food so this will be no different. What's your favorite dessert? Mine is probably the Maple butter Blondie at Applebees.  I know chain restaurants are cliche, but I like what I like.  I like mine with EXTRA pecans, bring on the pecans! I want so many it's almost disgusting. I like them. I want an excess. To me, life is kinda like this.  I want more of what I like around me. Not that I'm materialistic because that couldn't be further from the truth, but I do like to have abundant resources. Sometimes people ask me why I do "so much" Honestly, I don't believe I do a lot. I just manage my time, we all get the same amount. We all have the same 24 hours. All of our weeks are 168 hours. Often, I don't believe I do enough, but that's a whole blog all in itself.  Fact is, if we want more we have to do more.  


I want dessert. Some people are happy with the bare minimum. Their meal. Some people are happy with ramen noodles, and some people want steak. Then there are people like me that want steak, creamed spinach, a baked sweet potato... AND the dessert too!  I like the sweet things in life.  The dessert.  I want it ALL.  I want the best for myself and my family. We have the capacity to be and live as good as we choose to. God made all this stuff for us, wouldn't it be a smack in the face not to enjoy it? To enjoy it we must work for it.  This we know. 

So who's up for dessert?

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

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!

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&…
