To vote or not to vote...that is the question..

To vote or not to vote...that is the question..



The big day is here! 

We've endured a long and draining campaign season, but today that comes to an end as you cast your ballot for the next president of these here United States of America! 

Should you vote? 

Does your vote REALLY count? 

I'm inclined to say yes...for a number of reasons. I'd like to encourage you to vote with the candidate that champions the issues that you care about most. I'd encourage you to vote for inclusion and not divisiveness. I'd like to encourage you to make your voice heard....but most of all I'd like to encourage you to vote with your conscious. 

I'd encourage you to vote for the fighters before you. I'd encourage you to vote for your family after you. I'd encourage you to vote because you know someone who's not allowed to. I'd encourage you to vote for for someone who isn't here to vote...


I won't tell you who to vote for specifically, because that's something you have to decide for yourself...but I encourage you to ask yourself why loads of career politicians are crossing party lines to vote for the other side. I'd encourage you to ask yourself why none of the living former presidents are supporting a certain nominee, some going against their own party.  I'd encourage you to ask yourself do you think it wise to vote for someone who economists,military scientists, and even some of his own lawyers wouldn't vote for? I'd encourage you to ask yourself, do you want the ugly underbelly of america to reign supreme in the near future? 

With that said, I encourage you to make your voice heard on this day. I'm aware of the electoral college, but I still encourage you to do your part. Let me appeal to your logic...If your vote didn't matter would politicians cross party lines and risk career suicide? If your vote didn't matter would campaigns spend millions upon millions of dollars to influence your vote? If your vote didn't matter would there be voting suppression & intimidation? If your vote didn't matter would people have died for the right? 

 


Vote or don't...it's up to you. I won't shame you.....However, if you don't vote....certainly don't complain!

P.s. You still have time!

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&…
