I confess, Jim Carrey, interesting character, just not my favorite. I never got into his comedy or his movies for that matter. I knew that he is into the law of attraction, but that’s about it. So I was looking through Youtube, and I came across Jim Carrey’s¬†Commencement speech at the Maharishi University of Management and I thought there were so many gems in it, that it was worth taking the time to transcribe some of it. Here goes! Life does not happen to you, it happens for you. How do I know this? I don’t….Sometimes I think the only…

She has a weird name, this Dyna/Psych lady, but I’ve been told she works hard and makes people’s dreams come true ūüėČ One of the books that was on the Gary Halbert 30 Day Challenge was ‘The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches’ by Joe Karbo..¬†you can find it here Pretty much what the first half of the book talks about is Law of Attraction (or as Joe calls it Dyna/Psych) and how to use it to move on up on life and achieve all you have ever dreamed of. I have been familiar with the law of attraction for almost…

I’M DONE. I SAID IT. I’M DONE. DONE LEARNING ABOUT MAIL ORDER COPYWRITING. IT’S OUTDATED, BORING, AND TAKING ALL INSPIRATiON ABOUT GROWING THIS BABY AWAY! I read most of the books on the Gary Halbert challenge, but I decided¬†that enough is freakin¬†enough. I was learning, but about OLD copywriting methods…which, don’t get me wrong, there is still some useful information to learn, but what is the point of learning if I am still on the struggle bus when it comes to finding an idea I want to work on?! I’ve gotten lazy, and it is not good. (hence the lack…

Whoever created the word hustle must be rolling in their grave… (in case you REALLY really wanted to know, it is a Dutch word that originated in¬†1675) So I am a bit conflicted today. See, I completely took the weekend off of my workouts and the Gary Halbert 3o Day Challenge to go to New York City to celebrate my mother’s birthday. Family is family right? and a birthday only comes around once a year. Yesterday I had to babysit my niece, so barely got anything done too. What conflicts me about this is that every entrepreneur¬†you see is all…

i’m¬†Tired… with a capital T It’s incredible how much time is wasted trying to impress others. Such a basic social need we have, to give a crap what others will think… Why though? I am not saying I am not guilty of this. As much as I try to tell myself that I do not care what people think of me, I know deep down that it is far from the truth. How much human potential is wasted away, just because we are afraid to throw caution to the wind and do what our little hearts desire? Today I spent…

Today was another battle with my bed. I need to figure out what to do to get going early. It is so bad this habit. I am starting to lose interest in this copyrighting thing. The books are good, but they tend to drag on and on. I listened to some Tony Robins today. The talk was about limiting beliefs, and how we tend to make excuses and create belief patterns that either push us towards our goals or keep us in perpetual lameness (not his actual wording). ¬†I am going to do the exercise¬†that went along with his lesson…

Two things on opposite sides of the scale for me: I am the self-crowned¬†queen of resourcefulness. I love the challenge of finding things out or figuring out ways to get what I want, how I want it. On the other side of the scale, I do not consider myself to be resilient. I often quit as soon as my brain comes up with a reasonable excuse why it is not meant to be. If I fail, well I’m not gonna bother to try that again. It’s funny though, because for entrepreneurs,¬†these two qualities are a must, and yet I have…

I’ve always considered myself to be a good writer. It just flows for me (pun intended). Now, selling, not so much. Among many of my jobs, I tried my hand at real estate, but like many others, it was a no go for me. I have the genetics for being a salesperson, and I have had success with eBay, but overall I feel like sales is an essential muscle that I have yet to develop fully. While perusing the Fast Lane Forum, IceCreamKid suggested that a good start would be learning how to write copy. Not only because it would…

Nothing like wanting to wake up at 7AM and ending up rolling out of bed around 12pm. I swear, if you want to feel like you’ve accomplished absolutely nothing with your day, just sleep till noon. I am nocturnal, and it is not okay, at least not yet. When I have millions to my name, then I will for sure sleep till 12 as much as I want. After watching countless Garyvee videos and performing mental masturbation* the whole day, I’ve decided¬†that enough is enough. I need to be accountable to myself and to really get my shit together and…
