We are living in the most exciting time in the history of the world.
I have experienced The Beatles and the advent of the most exciting music ever created, notwithstanding the MASTERS.
I have seen the collapse of most of Communism.
I am an active party to the internet... the global village and Google, the most powerful tool in the history of the world.
Men walked on the moon in my lifetime.
People from all over the world can communicate with each other instantly and at no cost.
You don’t have to be a sociologist to understand the concept of ethnicity. Watch your children. When a five year old enters a park or pre-school classroom of five year olds, the others look to see who it is. Five year olds check out other five year olds. Teens check out other teens. Women check out other women.
It’s the same with ethnic people. They want to be in a community of other “a-likes”. Many reasons exist for this. Similarity of thinking, religion, language, social class and so on.
You are in a seminar being conducted by a professional muck-a-luck who has all the right moves for motivating you and telling you what it takes to “make it BIG”, - to succeed. And he/she has a formula for what works.
And work it does… for him/her.
So, why is the success rate for people taking the course so darned low? Because it doesn’t deal with what you and I are capable of doing, want to, or can afford to do (financially or in terms of time).
Sometimes I surprise myself. You would think that after all these years I would know myself better. Perhaps I know myself less than others know me. But that’s a topic for another day. Today I tasted Spring. You remember Spring? That’s when the weather gets warmer, the sun shines brighter, boys start thinking more about girls and girls start thinking more about nesting.
What’s the difference between ignorance & stupidity?
Ignorance is a lack of information.
Stupidity is not wanting the information to deal with ignorance.
If I told you that you could make $100,000 ++ this year with no money invested and by spending no more that 4-6 hours each week managing 6 people to make money for you, and you didn’t call to find out how, would you be ignorant or stupid?
Would you believe….Both!
647-479-8477 or Both!
I remember the sixties. I was there.
It was a time of The Beatles and the “British Invasion”… Bob Dylan and Jimmy Hendrix and Janice Joplin and The Beach Boys… Woodstock… a time of love-ins… of long hair and smoking pot and experimenting with hallucinogens…
I must state that the humans I am seeing are quite interesting to observe.
They are often very stubborn, but also exhibit flexibility.
They can at times become defensive and unapproachable, but just as often be open and receptive.
They can be arrogant, but also quite humble.
They have violent tendencies, but have been known to be gentle.
They do hurtful things. They do kindnesses.
They build. They destroy. They rebuild.
They do things that make no reasonable sense. They excel in their creativity.
Thanks Chris Rock. You made the 88th Academy Awards my last one.
Over the past 87 years there have been many people who have used the Awards platform to make their personal, social, political, and otherwise statements which I have always felt could be done as long as it was in good taste, or at the very least without making it something we had to swallow or choke on.
Last night the issue the black community could not control was its position that The Academy was discriminating against black people by not nominating a black actor.
Let’s admit that giving a referral has its complications.
As the Broker/Owner of HomeLife Classic Realty Inc., Brokerage, and as the previous Manager of several other offices, I have been approached over the years, and am still being approached to let sales people from all types of businesses come to my training seminars to introduce themselves and promote their products or services.
In my opinion there is nothing less constructive than woulda, coulda, shoulda, hadda, aughta.
I woulda, coulda done this if only I hadda known that. Well if you hadda know that, there isn’t anything you couldna done. Seriously, maybe you aughta.
What you aughta have done was not said what you hadda said. Then you wouldna hadda put your big fat foot in your mouth.
See. Therein resides the problem. Hindsight is the lowest form of intelligence.
