Seeds-Growth of a simple seed

Actions are the seed of fate deeds grow into destiny.
Harry S. Truman

Action is defined as a habitual or usual acts; conduct; He is responsible for his actions. Energetic activity: A man of action (

What kind of seeds are you spreading? Seeds that are sown on good ground produce; you know the scripture that speaks to the parable of the sower.  “And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: a sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodded down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.  And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.  And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.  And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bared fruit a hundredfold.  And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear let him hear.”  (Luke 8:-4-8) 

The seeds were planted, watered, warmed by the sun and grew. This is how our relationships should grow.  Relationships should develop through germination. It is a beginning of a process of development.  The relationship must germinate until it blossoms. Germination is an embryo inside the seed.  Relationships begin as an embryo, learning to trust the seed during the development.  The embryo develops a safe environment during that growth.  It does not have to worry about drying out, disconnecting and/or isolating from the seed.  The seed is nourished through watering. 

It is important to know what kind of seed you are sowing.  If you are sowing dishonest seeds look for dishonest seeds to germinate inside. Seeds of mistrust germinated distrusting blooms. Seeds of faith, courage, honesty, kindness and fairness germinate and duplicate growing into beautiful flowers of all kinds.  Examine the seeds you are dropping each day it may just grow thorns that will prick your finger and choke the few good seeds you’ve planted.

Seeds of discord, we’ve all planted a seed or two but cut these seeds at the root and destroy the tie that binds them.  Sow seeds that are rooted in faith, strong enough to protect other seeds.  The germination process you start from the very beginning will determine the flower that blooms in the spring.  Planting and sowing, fertilizing and caring for each seed you drop will feed those who come behind you.

Prepare your grown and seed each section carefully, protecting them with goodness and mercy each, and everyday watch them grown in a strong way. “Everything that exists is in a manner the seed of that which will be” Marcus Aurelius.

Business germinates in the beginning it is all over the palace until it becomes consistent and habitual, and a routine develops.  It is like a child that takes his/her first step, stumbling, and leaning. Internet marketing takes time to develop.  It is the embryo that is surrounded by a germinating seed.  Once it is ready to produce it will. It takes time to develop the skills of Internet marketing but with patients and understanding your seed will grow in leaps and bounds. Everything that exists is in a manner the seed of that which will be Marcus Aurelius. Plan your seed in good ground and expect to harvest in due season.
Many people do not expect the harvest.  They plan seeds and water them faithfully but do not believe that the harvest is coming.  We often become concern about what is to come and it brings doubt in our hearts and mind.  We must believe in the unexpected.  Expect the harvest and trust that God will help you grow and reap the benefits.  We must continue to work and labor in our business.  Giving up is not an acceptable option.  I say acceptable option because it is an option.
Choosing the best ground, surrounding yourself with other sower who believes that the harvest is coming is important to you.  Declare today that the harvest is coming and be prepare to reap the benefit.  While you wait in great expectation, share you good news with others.  Let them know what you are waiting for.  Get involve with the vision and see the seeds germinate into something beautiful.

Be patient and remember what you has begun is the beginning of ties to the future of your family.  Stay connected to the original vision.  Marcus Aurelius said, “Everything that exists in a manner the seed of that which will be.” The seed is intended to grow.

Step it up- Caught up in the rat race Part 3

Step it up-Caught up in the rat race
Part 3

Self- Effacing
In part 2 we discussed how Glasow thinking abilities afforded him a 60 year business as an American Humorist bringing joy to the world through humor.  Glasow is also known for self-effacing.  Self-effacing is one who keeps in the background, usually modest and tends not to drawn attention to themselves (

Glasow love to give of himself.  For 93 years up until he passed away he remind loyal to his followers.  In part 2 it was stated he wrote his first book at age 90.  This speaks to his passion and drive.  To write a book at age 90 says a lot.  Many of our elderly population develop thinking processes which suggest “I’m done, old and who will need me, there is nothing else for me to do.”

Wrong attitude it is a new beginning another chapter of your life.  One way to begin your new life is starting a home-based business.  Get involve with your community, assist an activity director in the local senior center.  If you don’t have health challenges that interfere with your involvement step it up and keep moving.  Having a generous spirit means inside your heart and soul you have the compassion to help others.  Giving of your-self in forms that help others succeed.

Generous Spirit
God is so generous to us.  He gives us the spirit of generosity and wants us to utilize it by being motivated into action.   We all live off his generous bounty, gift after gift after gift John 1:16.
The gifts given to us should be used to edify and build each other.  The gift of generosity is one gift we need.  In our current businesses we all give free products and services.  This is to help new affiliates get started.  An important concept to remember involves follow up.

I received an email from a new affiliate that stated the following: “Thank you for your email welcoming me to the business, often no one ever gets back or call.”  Wow, I thought.  Follow up is very important and a necessary method in business.

A generous spirit  develops a humble heart, and promotes kindness.  These are qualities to embrace.  It is very difficult to work with others who lack humility, kindness and are always angry.  In addition to a generous spirit is patient’s.  We all struggle with patients.  My mentor brought this out on one of our session.  During the instructions, I had demonstrated an impatient moment towards myself because I was not getting what was taught.  A mentoring heart Terri Pattio said calmly “Be patient you are learning.”  These simple words settled my anxiety and allowed me to refocus, and hear the instructions.

Often times in our daily activities something triggers an anxious moment.  It is very important to reduce anxiety and increase patients so learning can take place.  Tug yourself and take a step back, look clearly at that which is causing anxiety and change the behavior immediately.  Why? Because you’ll need to keep focused.

Glasow ignored the spot light.  He remained in the background and yet made an impact on the lives of many.  In our Internet marketing business we can make an impact too by sharing, giving and helping others. Don't be surprise when your generosity returns to you in an awesome way.

Step it up- Caught up in the rat race Part 2

Step up-Caught up in the rat race

Part 2
Glasow’s quote wowed the world.  He spoke on setting your-self on fire not literally but your thoughts, and actions.  When we are on fire people are ignited.  When the fire goes out so will our connections.  
In the part 1 we just heard the results of a photo finish.  The winners step up the stairs trying to avoid the rat race to the pay-off cage while the horse, jockey and owner take pictures of the winning horse.  What an exciting day for those who bet their wages and the owner.  As the day wines down and the stands clear the training begins again to ignite the fire needed to win again.

 His first book written at age 90

Glasow wrote his first book at age 90.  Remember his business wowed the world over 60 years.  Can you image the challenges he faced?  This is why we continue to focus on the dream, and not the work it takes to achieve the dreams.  This suggests as we mature in age there are still lots to do.
Glasow remained on fire until he passed away at age 93.  What a wonderful story. 
What has humor got to do with it?  Everything, humor should be a part of our lives.  Even when difficult times hit the steps of your door.  Difficulty runs down the stairs when humor hits the door so laugh a lot.  Remember the story of the tortious and the hare?  The hare knew in his mind that the tortious was slow, would never make it so he just messed around, frolicking around teasing and poking at the tortious and he lost the race.  The tortious won because he stayed on course and did not let the distractions of the know it all hare disrupt his steps.  It is a funny story and children all over the world laugh.

Steve Harvey a well- known comedian loves old school music.  In the Kings of Comedy he alludes to an old song Lenny Williams “Cause, I love you” he compared the songs of today with the songs of old.  His presentation of this era was so funny he had the audience wowed because of the memories.  He ignited the memories of many of us who followed Lenny Williams ‘songs.  As the song is played Steven Harvey gives an electrifying posturing that caused the audience to scream with wows.  People need humor and the business you promote will find them ignite them with laughter. 
Glasow was a thinker he believed in his work and wanted to share his humor corner with the world.  He paved the way nationally until it was accepted and now called upon.  We must be thinker also promoting links and sharing business are good methods but to wow people a concept unique to your business is necessary.  The methods you use could be in the form of videos, blogging, advertising, or an auto-responder voice mail message.  Choose a method that works for your business.  Thinkers evaluate the targeted audience, and then tailor their business presentation to meet the needs.  When speaking to prospects have a pen or pencil available and jot down key words stated by the prospect.  This will help you remain engaged.  Put on your thinking cap before you make contact.

What I love about Glasow is his ability to bring the best out of people through humor what a wonderful concept.  Thinkers step up the stairs and out run the rat race. Look for part 3

Step it up-Caught up in the rat race

Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire. ~Arnold H. Glasow
Arnold H. Glasow was an American Humorist who lived in Fond-du-lac Wisconsin. Born in 1905 and died at the age of 93 in 1998. Glasow work began with an idea. His business was a humor magazine that he marketed to firms nationally, which firms would turn into their “house organ” to send to customers. He carried on this business for over 60 years, publishing his first book at age 92. The book is titled, “Glasow’s Gloombusters,” one of many in his career. He was cited frequently in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, the Chicago Tribune and many other major organs.  He was a regular contributor to the humor sections of Reader’s Digest.  sixty years of productive work.  A real American thinker, self-effacing and generous of spirit, he shunned the national spotlight (
Several points in Glasow’s quotes caught my interest:
1.      You must set yourself on fire
2.      His first book written at age 90
3.      People love humor
4.      He was a thinker
5.      Self-effacing
6.      Generous spirit
7.      He ignored the spotlight

Setting your-self on fire
We are all familiar with the word fire its’ hot and will move people quickly.  The flames last for a long time.  His analogy of setting your-self on fire does not mean take a match and light your-self I felt the need to clarify this statement.  It means get worked up, excited, and motivated.

In the beginning of a horse race fans making wages, talking to one another about their famous favorite horse, the race begins and the stands are full with people cheering their horse and jockey on.  When the race ends and there is need for a photo finish.  When the results come in the winners cheer and tickets are tossed up in the air by the losers.  As the winners make their way up the steps to the ticket booth laughter is heard across the stands.  The winners go and collect their winnings. 

Down below on the track the jockey, owner and horse take photos, the horse is adorned with a beautiful wreath, and the race develops a new beginning another race.  The business you currently own fire it up and maintain that fire with excitement, discussions on its progression and share your dreams.  This will keep the fire lit.  Just in case it dies down start the fire again and step it up.

The Activity-The Business Scene

Many activities and team play participation will give you a training that will prove invaluable later on in life.
Walter Annenberg

Good morning everyone Carolyn Coleman-Grady here I thought like this quote the word activities and team play are the words that popped out for me today.  Walter Annenberg a Philanthropic. He has multiple attributes.  The one attribute that interest me today is his giving heart.  He is known for giving more than $ 2 billion cash over the years according to Christopher Ogden ( He had multiple talents and was respected by many. Walter Annenberg died at the age of 94.  
Giving is so important in business. 

Customers look for perks.  For example when grocery shopping the cash registered kicks out coupons these coupons are in anticipation of your return. Restaurants now offering twenty dollar meals for two they realize there are many other restaurants you could choose to dine in so restaurants, stores and advertisers have developed creative ways to draw your business back to theirs.

I believe it is significant to advertise and promote your business, but giving away services to promote people is equally important. Meeting the needs of others means there are times when giving something free is the answer.  In today’s economy people are struggling daily to meet their needs.  It is our opportunities that they are looking for.  Providing an avenue of changes is important.  Helping others break the cycle of living from pay check to pay check. This will require changed thinking.

The activities we provide should include teaching, promoting, providing information that is clear, detailed and organized.  When perspective prospects visit business sites they are looking for opportunities.  If the page they’ve visited is lacking comprehensible information expect them to move on.  Each of us has different learning styles and intelligence.  It is important that we promote our activities with the learners in mind.  There are those who learn through music, kinetics, written and mathematics.  We have those who learn through videos and audiotapes.  Which every the style of learning it is our responsibility to provide it for the prospect.

Promoting your business in a language that only you understand only benefits you but providing clear, detailed comprehensible information about your business will benefit everyone. Giving of yourself freely to ensure that everyone involved in your business understands the concepts you’ve provided is important.  It makes you a better team player.

Pictures of Rainbows-Where does it lead you

I imagine a rainbow covering a portion of the sky feeling it with colors that represent so many things for me.  See I’ve been taught that every time you see a rainbow it is a reminder of God.  He led his people out of bondage.  I get really choked up with the thought of barriers that hinder our progress.  Rainbows are so full of wonders.  Rainbows work in a natural beautiful effect. The colors display a perfect band with bows that develop form. That form is intrigue the eye.
Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
Lord Byron
Rainbows come after a storm it a phenomenon of light, its perception by the physical senses and the conceptual mind which produces the appearance of spectral band of colors. (Wikiquote).
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high there is a land called marketing, it is multifaceted with dimensions that run wide and deep.  Its’ integral parts include networking, and making connection.   This amazing band of rainbows stimulates the field of communication leaving many speechless.  The surrounding parts include colorful bands that are so strong that nothing negative can penetrate.  As the marketing rainbow flows from city to state from state to country it leaves the colors dripping and array of beautify. 
Business leaders all over the world engulf the multiple flavors that flow freely from each strand.   The troubles that come along with business melt away by the sweetness of the rainbow that is way up high.  The storm that blew everything you owned away returns with a variety of magic and wonder.  The spectral band of colors flow freely coast to coast brightening the day.  The rainbow colors that can illuminate the sky are amazing leaving excitement, and adventure along the way.
I was listening to somewhere over the rainbow song by Eva Cassidy her sultry voice and smooth sound engulfed my imagination.  I was surrounded by fields of green tall grass, sun rising and I looked up high in the sky and a beautiful rainbow hovered over me.  It put a smile on my face that would brighten a darken room.  I like a peaceful matter of doing business one where its ok to make mistakes and correct them.  I know I’m not perfect but I walk towards perfection..  The rainbow that is somewhere way up high gives a sense of joy.
 Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
Lord Byron
