Seize the Day

I subscribe to many newsletters, this one following is one.
This particular post I wanted to share with you as I see a need in myself, and perhaps you may too.


“So he who had
received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you
delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides
them.' His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.' “


As a young man, Alan
Redpath was a successful accountant. One day, he was talking with a Christian
friend who told him, “Alan, it is possible to have a saved soul and a
wasted life.”

Redpath couldn't forget those words. He knew he was guilty of having a saved
soul and a wasted life. He prayed, “Lord, I want Your will for me. I don't
want to waste my life. I dedicate it to You.”

God redirected his course, and Redpath ultimately became an evangelist, pastor,
author, president of a missions organization, and a dean of a Bible school. He
served the Lord until the end of his life.

It's possible that some of us could have a saved soul but a wasted life. In
other words, you have the assurance of heaven, but you're wasting your life
here on earth. You're not serving Christ to the fullest.

Every person's life is filled with opportunities to serve the Lord. What we do
with the opportunities is the big question. Do we let them slip by? Or do we
seize the day and serve the Lord so that we can hear Him say, “Well done,
good and faithful servant”?

If you desire to hear those words, then make a change in your life like Alan
Redpath made. Take what God has given you and make the most of it.

You might say to yourself, “But I don't have much.” You have
everything you need. You have God's most precious gift, Jesus Christ. You have
the Holy Spirit to empower you.

God has instilled in your life certain gifts for His glory. That means your
life is valuable.

Take what God has given you and dedicate it to His glory. Just watch what He
will accomplish.

Affiliates home business

What Does “IT” Cost?

I was recently reading an article about the Best Home Based Business Opportiunies  
And the subject of costs was mentioned. 

By working out of your home, you don't have the overhead of a leased office. This is saved money. 
And depending on your product or service niche there is no need for inventory. 

If you are taking advantage of Affiliate income through your ‘proverbial product', then you are not spending the money on development because it has been done for you. 
On that note, do your research and make sure the company you are promoting is trustworthy and established. This can really add to you bottom line because they have a following that you can take advantage of.

“Starting a home based business can be rewarding experience for many but it does have it share of frustrations and disappointments. With advantages like flexible work hours, satisfaction of being your own boss, no commuting, tax benefits, it also has disadvantages like increased risk, loneliness, and added responsibilities. Start learning the skills that are essential to successful home base business opportunities.”
On my main site,, I have many companies that we have determined are worthy of my energy. 
It does take work, and time, and if you are just starting it can be frustrating. I have a course that leads you by the hand on the way that has been proven.
I am very sure this just the tip of the iceberg. I welcome your comments and input that everyone can use.

To help you get started in the online e-commerce world, this article will present to you five time-tested ways to earn money online. Please take a look at the list of opportunities listed below.


1. Sell items on Ebay (or other online auction site): One tried and true method of making money on the Internet is to earn money online while you sell on eBay. This online marketplace is home to millions of vendors who offer useful quality products and services, usually for less than the cost of purchase at stores. This particular money-making venue is so successful right now that eBay has become a household name. Similar sites to eBay include or (either auctions and/or “buy it now” formats).


2. Provide a freelance service: This is also another very honest money-making venture. In fact, it may be one of the most popular ways to earn money online today. The reason why is because the start-up cost of providing quality articles, graphics, website pages, IT services, or other expertise from home is quite low.


Moreover, the cost of transportation and operating expenses for this type of business is generally quite low in most cases as well. Furthermore, clients love to hire freelancers because they can call upon these type of workers when they need them, and not be obligated to hire them year round or to pay them benefits.


3. Start an online store: What better way to satisfy your desire to achieve the lifestyle of your dreams. You can start a store that reaches people all over the world if you want to. Sooner or later you can earn enough money by way of this stream of income and you do not even need to have your own warehouse full of products or services in some cases. You can earn money this way even while you sleep If you set up an automated billing service.


4. Launch affiliate marketing campaigns: Simply put, an affiliate marketer is one who provides site visitors with useful information. They also may present free e-books, useful computer software, or other freebees in order to entice site visitors to become regular members of an online community.


A secondary goal of this type of marketer is for site visitors to click on sponsored ads. In return, webmasters of affiliate marketing sites usually receive a commission or bonus for generating leads or sales.


5. Answer people's questions: People w ho are involved in answering people's questions about a subject they are experts about can make money in more ways than one. They can provide premium consultation services via e-mail, chat, phone, or video and payment is usually per hour or half hour, or per response. Or, they can provide expert answers for free and sponsor advertisers. In this case, most of the revenue earned by the site master would be in ad sales, ad clicks, leads, or sales.

Law of Attraction

Want to know the REAL secret of success?

The Real Secret of Success
By Brian Tracy
More than 5,000 years ago, in the ancient mystery schools of Egypt, the mental and spiritual laws and principles of success were taught to students who dedicated their entire lives to learning in what was called the “Esoteric Arts.” 
One of these “secrets” was the Law of Attraction, which said that your mind is a magnet and that you invariably attract into your life people and circumstances in harmony with your dominant thoughts, especially your dominant thoughts emotionalized.
Today we say, “Like attracts like” and “Birds of a feather flock together.” From ancient times, it was known that your mind sends out vibrations, like radio waves, that are picked up by the minds of other people who are tuned into the same rate of vibration. 
The force that determines the sending power of your mental vibrations is the amount of emotion, positive or negative, that you put behind a thought. If there is something that you intensely desire, something that excites you and enthuses you, you will send out powerful, high-frequency vibrations that can travel large distances in split seconds and cause your phone to ring from someone you have not heard from for months or even years. 
Because your mind is so powerful, especially when backed by emotionalized thoughts, you must handle it carefully, like a child handling a gun. The Law of Attraction is neutral. It works on both positive and negative thoughts. It brings into your life whatever you are thinking about on a regular basis with either fear or desire. 
When the book, “The Secret” came out, along with the movie, I was happily surprised to see that the first half of the movie comes from my audio program and seminar, “The Psychology of Achievement” which was produced initially in 1981. We videotaped the live seminar which explains the Law of Attraction along with thirty-one other laws, plus how this law is applied in every area of life, and then distributed the video seminar world wide, including New Zealand, where the Author of The Secret comes from. 
The weakness in The Secret is that it is “necessary but not sufficient.” Of course, it is important that you think positive thoughts and that, by so doing, you will attract positive people and circumstances into your life. But it is not enough. 
In response to The Secret, I decided to write a book which is called “Flight Plan — The Real Secret of Success.” In this book, I explain that life is very much like a long distance flight. When the plane takes off, it will be off course 99% of the time. But nonetheless, the plane will eventually arrive at its destination, even thought it was off course most of the time. 
In my experience, the real secret of success consists of three major factors: First, you must be absolutely clear about your destination. By this I mean that must have clear, written, specific, measurable goals, committed to paper and organized into specific, step-by-step plans of action. 
Before you can set your goals, you must know exactly who you are and what you want. You must do a thorough analysis of yourself, your life, your hopes, your dreams, your ambitions, and where you want to be sometime in the future. Then, you create a “Flight Plan” to get you from wherever you are today to wherever you want to be in the months and years ahead. 
The second part of Flight Plan is that you must “take off!” You must have the courage to step out in faith with no guarantee of success. You must be prepared to launch in the face of your fears, doubts and natural reluctance to break out of your comfort zone. “To achieve something that you have never achieved before, you must be prepared to do something that you have never done before.” (Les Brown). 
Once you have launched toward your goal, like an airplane, you will meet with unexpected turbulence, headwinds, updrafts and downdrafts, lightning, storms and every sort of mechanical problem. You must be prepared to make continual “course corrections” as you move toward your goal. 
Perhaps the most important quality for success is, and always has been, the quality of persistence. You must resolve in advance to persist in the face of any difficulty or problem that you experience. You must resolve in advance that you will never give up. You must resolve in advance that you will view every temporary setback or difficulty as merely a signal that you need to make a “course correction” as you move inevitably toward your goal. 
This is a great time to be alive. The very best days of your life lie ahead of you. The highest income of your life is still to come. The greatest experiences of your life are still to be experienced. 
There is very little that you can not accomplish if you will file your flight plan. Determine exactly what it is that you want to achieve, take off toward your goal with no guarantees of success, and then make continual course corrections until you finally succeed. If you resolve to do these things, nothing can stop you from creating an extraordinary life. 
Want to know the REAL secret of success? 
You need a flight plan to succeed. And having a plan isn’t enough. Just like an airplane pilot you must make course corrections to arrive at your destination — your goals.
