How can you create wealth?




What is wealth? Is it a salary? Is it an income? From an economics perspective it is all things that have a monetary or exchange value, as well as anything that has utility and is capable of being appropriated or exchanged. Many people wonder what the best way to attain wealth. Well, here are some ways to acquire it:

1.       Have a sound framework on what are your interests.
2.       Own a few high quality business
3.       Use other people’s money prudently
4.       Have a long term investment strategy

They are other types of wealth such as health, good family and true friends. They don’t have a monitory price but just as valuable. To maintain or obtain those intangibles, keep the following in mind:

1.       Time is valuable, use it wisely
2.       Integrity is everything
3.       Physical presence carries more weight than a phone call or an email
4.       Be humane; treat others how you want to be treated for bad karma will visit you.

A Leaders View




Good leaders are able to asses a situation and foreshadow its future. They take what is in from of them and create a blueprint that will enable them to stay relevant.  All organizations have a leader; whether it is home, school, work one person has to set the agenda for the group’s survival. Are you up to the task? All leaders must consider the following:
1.      
TTime                                                                                                                                                                   It maximizes production and minimizes stress.
2.       People                                                                                                                                                          They use people’s talent effectively under proper supervision
3.       Money                                                                                                                                                           use as a tool not as a weapon bill have to be paid and goals can be accomplished
4.       Pronoun                                                                                                                                                       This is the difference between manger and leaders. There is no I in we; remember to use we, us and ours.
5.       Meetings                                                                                                                                                   Make sure it has a purpose and agenda or else there will be no incentive to attend the future ones.
6.       Networking                                                                                                                                                  This strengthens the organizations ecosystem. You learn from others, for no one is an island.
7.       Vision                                                                                                                                                              Tie the past position to the future. You can mark accomplishment based on how far you have come to where you are going.
8.       Teams                                                                                                                                                          Give some power and authority to others in the group, so they feel their presence is valued.
9.       Transparency                                                                                                                                                   For a group to survive, integrity is everything. It should be real time, real talk to issues and no surprises.

Awaken the entrepreneur within




Are you getting tired of your 9-5? Ever dream about being your own boss? If so, then you must begin to develop a boss mindset. A blueprint will lead you in that direction. Remember this is an inside job that will lead to outside actions. Practice these things on a regular basis:

1.     Invest as much as you can in training education and knowledge. Libraries and the internet offers free classes.

2.     Have faith and belief in yourself becoming successful.

3.     Examine your surroundings. Who supports you when you share your dream verses who puts you down. Minimalize your interaction with the person putting you down. They are a vexation to your spirit and progress.

4.     Meditate 10- 20 minutes daily. Everything starts in the mind. See it to achieve it.
Money gives you choices. This does not make you a bad person for looking out for number #1. However, morality and integrity must always be a part of your decision. Your purpose for providing a product or service should fulfill a need. This will be the catalyst to bring it into being and encourage productivity. Always do things that will push you forward positively.

How to be the star of your own show



Choose your own self and love yourself! Why are you waiting for the approval of others? Many defaults are in place and you may not be aware of what is happening around you. You did not return the call because on a subconscious level that person is not benefiting you politically or economically. You did intentionally forget.

 Become conscious by asking yourself what is the vision you have for your life. If you are tired of the 9-5, create something. Why did you make the choices you made and what are the ramifications? Not making a decision is a choice. Make money via a skill or trade that you enjoy. It may not be your main source of income but side hustles can be viewed as play and not work. If you have no idea on what a side hustle can be, considers these popular trends:

1.       Become a  media and online advertiser

2.       Establish a clothing brand for a specific niche. Remember the ideal age  to target are between 13-35 year old

3.       Create tutoring shows on You Tube.
There is one constant and that is the truth. Your world is all in your hands.

Embrace your place at the helm




The year may have begun with a bang. It was filled with promises such as I am going to make it to the gym as a regular part of my weekly routine. For a while that was the case but that lasted only for a while. Remember it’s not now your start but how you finish. Here are a few ways to hit the reset button:

1.       Take on some me time. No matter what commitments you have to others, you must take a breather.

2.       Run-through declarations of bright. Showing appreciation gives you a chance to improve how you speak about inspiration and acknowledge people who have made a favorable mark in your life. By showing how grateful you are will let your supporters know they are not being taken for granted.

3.       Place the phone on voice mail mode. Unfortunately, people interaction is becoming more social media rather than one on one facetime.  The human touch or eye to eye contact still carries more weight than a quick text.

4.       Create a spark. Don’t let self-care be just a buzz word. Truly reclaim it for real happiness. Create boundaries for if you don’t, what will be left for you? Rest and retreat is a must. Attend yoga classes or get regular messages. Also, meditation will settle you for the hectic events that will come your way.

IN THE BLACKNESS


 by Anthony Jules


In the Blackness

As we reclined together

I heard your whisper

Take the breath from my lips

And let us breathe as one

If only for a night

Let time Stand still

Let it wait to be summoned

By the future

But for us, now

Only the present matter

In the Blackness

You’ll find my light

It shines

Just for you
