Please Do Not Miss Part 1. Click Here.

I want to start out by saying that these things that I want to share with you are because I want to help you make it in Writing, make it in business, make it in life. Now, let me rush to say that I am no am Definitely Not by any stretch…the Paragon of excellent. I’m just a widdle beah from Bama and there are lots of things that this average park bear needs to learn.

However, I do know this….the sooner we become less impressed with our own lives, with our accomplishments, with those who call themselves our friends but add no true value to our lives, the sooner we will define and realize success in those things which make for peace. The sooner we will find tranquility and a higher quality of life.

So….I want to talk to you about some things that I have learned in my experience at WA and in my Adventures Online and in Life in General. Some have I read the blogs of Ambassadors, many from blogs of Newbies, some from questions others Answers, most from my own experiences others in passing, but all…. I do believe…. and hold to be true.

Not Mine to Monopolize!!

Now they may be truths and rails that I run on…. but please do not think of them as being The Teddy Bear’s. You cannot own a truth so please think of them more along the lines of sign posts, bookmarks, earmarks, and Paradigm Shifts that are meant to shed some light on your entrepreneurship experience both here at the Mighty, the Mighty, the Mighty Mighty WA and the four corners of the globe that will lend some science to your future satisfactions.

They are yours to steal, they are yours to share, to liken into your own lives, to personally apply into your own Ways of Thinking, to Shape, to Style, to Form, and to Cause to Function in your own Lives…..should you choose to.

My goal

My goal is to help you make your writing Spectacular, Most Excellent, Outstanding, and Phenomenal. However, to truly Write Great Articles and to Write with Passion you must understand that life isn’t fair. Let’s get that out there. Your Great Grand Pappy should have told you that. It was not then, it is not now, never being and never will be…get over it.

I want you to know life is unfair our mentors are human and sometimes wrong, our best friends lie to us, we lie to ourselves all the time. Unbelievable? I don’t think so, it happens every day.

Nothing that us humans do surprise me anymore. So, acknowledge that human greatness is real and so is human frailties and do not be knocked off your chair when you find out that the ole Teddy Bear isn’t really always a sweet widdle stuffed beah, nor be in denial of your own shortcomings.

Today I want to talk to you about time management. I want to help show you how to keep people from robbing you of your time and how to keep from robbing yourself.

To do this you have to define to yourself what success is to you….then peruse it. Whatever are you talking about Bear? Well, I’m glad you asked. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid man, It tastes sweet but you will get cavities by swallowing too much BS.

By all means, Set your next goal in Writing, but first, ask yourself what your goal is…or…at least what it is right now. So here’s my list.

  • Define success for yourself then put in the daily work to maintain it.
  • Own Your Failures
  • Restore Your Soul.
  • Own Your Blessings
  • Attitude of Gratitude
  • Make Voluntary Obligations
  • Testify of Your Success

Be a little more careful who you follow and watch where you are going when you know others are following you. I mean, come on!!! We all have two wolves with us and they both want to eat. We have a good one and a bad one but it is the one that we feed that will dominate the stories of our successes.

Now, most people have no problems recognizing failure. The problem they seem to have is owning it. I do not know why it is that people want to blame everyone and everything for their shortcomings but themselves.

The simple truth is that no one ever plans to fail, they simply fail to plan. You must plan your work and work your plan. If you do not make it then it is your fault. Own it.

The Devil Made You Do It

If that is how you want to look at it because......You Did it to Yourself. Nobody made you lay in that bed two hours after the alarm went off and not get up and start your day. But you say, “Why should I get up? There is nothing to get up for!” The reason you have nothing to get up for is that you did not plan for this morning the night before.

I’ve been told that the soul is your mind, your will, and your emotions. When you have stinking thinking your very soul is in bondage. You can’t think…You can’t do what you want…..there goes your mind.

You cannot do what it is that you are wanting to do…so there goes your mind and You are all torn up inside and you cry all day when you should be writing…..there go your emotions.

You become overwhelmed and cry and can’t think clearly to learn and so you cannot Systematically make the Acquisitions of Knowledge and Skills which are paramount to Moving Beyond Yourselves and on to Greatness in the soon to be Recorded Annals of Internet History.

It has been well said that Literally Everybody brings Joy into your life. Some when they enter your lives…..and though I am hesitant to say this….some when they get the HELL OUT!!

May I ask you a question? Do you walk in an Attitude of gratitude? That’s right…. An Attitude of Gratitude. This makes for you to be Good Company. I want to hear you one day say, “You know, Bear…You Are Good People.” I Love Good People & Mean People Suck!! Don’t they?

There was an ancient King of Israel by the name of David, Secular Historians tell us that when this Ancient King of Israel would go to war with his enemy that he would march the Choir in First. Now, I’m NOT going to speculate…HERE…why he would do this but I can tell you that they never lost.

There is just something powerful about an Attitude of Gratitude that Pierces the Darkness of This Present Evil Age. The Darkness of the Power of the Air and lets you Commune with your Greater Power.

Let me ask you another question? Why is it that we have an obsession with what is bad? People can receive praise all day long but let one little negative comment come their way and they go down for the count.

I’m not saying to be in Denial of your failure. I’ve had some bad reviews. I learn from them and count them all joy. Joy..Bear? Yes…that’s right…joy.

You should set a;

If my goal was to be a singer, I'd have to set up goals to accomplish that Dream. What Is Your Dream? Well, Get Busy Realizing It.

  • 5 Year Goal
  • 3 Year Goal
  • 1 Year Goal
  • 6 Month Goal
  • Monthly Goal
  • Daily Goals

Now, no one should need to throw you a party when you keep them and no one is going to arrest you when you do not. These are for you. Cut Covenant with yourself.

  • Process of Elimination
  • Don’t Leave a Crumbs. The Gift of a Shut Mouth.
  • Stop watching the clock. If you have to be somewhere set an alarm, there is no need to watch a clock.
  • Cut out Distractions. These distractions can be many things…You list your own here…

In order to establish who you are you are going to have to establish FIRST(!!!)….who you are not.

I mean..Knowing who you are is hard!! If I ask you who are you, what would you say?

The two most important questions I feel that everyone should ask themselves are;

  1. Who am I?
  2. What am I to do? questions

What are crumbs? The messes you make in your lives by the 4 “Ps” Piss Poor Prior Planning.

If you work for someone else then let Them Tell You…. When it’s time to go home when it’s time to take a break when it’s time to do….whatever.

Let them tell you ….. “Dude!!!! You’re on the First Page of Google.

Go in the closet of your mind and close the door and get busy.

One of the things that have become VERY VERY VERY important to me for various reasons that I will not discuss here is I’ve decided to make sure that it is my wife and children do NOT EVER have the Opportunity to tell me…”I Love you.” They will be the ones saying, "I Love You Too!!"

Why? Because I have decided that I will never again give them the chance to initiate that particular interchange with me. They will know forever and Ever Amen…that I will Leave this World Loving Them.

Well, What Did You Think?

We are provided with much detail here at WA, so much so that site building and engaging with readers can seem difficult and complicated. It takes time to absorb it all and fill the puzzle pieces in. You're right about the training and the simplicity of "click here" and "now click here" that you've mentioned. It's a measure of success to review the vids and spot a little detail that's been missed. Even tho' it feels like a step back and "losing time". Step by step it gets simpler...your posts are helpful Chris because you give us pause, and focus. Thank you!

Chris. Your words speak to my heart. I learn something every time I read something that you've written.

Due to some foolish decisions that I've made in recent years, I've gone through a great pruning and refining process. It's been painful, but I'm so grateful for God's great mercy in dealing with me. There is still a long way to go.

Something you said particularly resonated with me - "Why is it that we have an obsession with what is bad? People can receive praise all day long but let one little negative comment come their way and they go down for the count". I pray for the courage to remember that none of this life is all about me...I'm part of an incredible plan set in motion from the beginning of time. Don't strive for perfection, as that is all about pride, strive to do what is right and accept that I may not always be right, no matter how right I am...

My soul's desire has always been to help others in whatever way I can, even when I constantly lived in the pit. Now I pray for opportunities to do it for the right reasons.

My sweetest buddy in the Whole Wide World, Natalie. I cannot imagine anything that someone would not immediately forgive and move past just to be around you as I am certain (with that warm smile and winning spirit) that you have got to be one of the best friends anybody could have.

I am always warm and fuzzy inside after reading your comments and always appreciate the time you take to share that beautiful mind.

I know that the thing your are tell us is true.I have experienced that, when I am writing and my mind is on the page it is as if time has no ending. and it is a flow of words. They all make sense to me.

The world gets in the way, Every day living get in the way when there is not enough to go around when your children are hungry what's there to eat. Writing becomes a pain and there is no end to what everybody else wants and don't see or feel the same way you do what you are doing is not putting food on the table.

I think I have to make this work but then there is no income to to make this work. The last couple of weeks have been dedicated to making a dysfunctional household function-able so I can get back to writing. I think I have accomplished that but then again have I?

What am I doing this for or how am I doing this for, is this real or just a fantasy. When I am there it is real this is just not something that I have made up. The road has been hard one to follow but in the end is it the better one.

Gratitude, acceptance, process of elimination, the path has been set can I accomplish it.

always a better way has become is the a better way

My sweet friend, Linda, few are the chosen to stumble along the road narrow called greatness. I do believe, sweet sister, you are running point.

I love your style and dedication, determination, and designation which are shout to lead the way to graduation!!

Que lastima, like fine wine, true greatness is rarely realized in ones own lifetime. I am certain you will be quoted by the masses.

You certainly have a way with words Chris, I don't think there is greatness, But certainly, something that is more than just me there, sometimes I think that they are not even my words that are what I mean about inspirational writing. the words are just there and you write them.

The road is definitely not a road that I would have chosen for myself. But so be it I will do what the Lord has sent me to do but with much difficulty. Health and welfare have been around me all my life.

On the down side, I see so much suffering and people are not seeing or hearing until they get a walk up call, then they are all seeing and all knowing.

The trouble with me is have been able to see and hear at a very early age. And like the Teddy Bears picknick you take the story and just believe because your mother wouldn't lie about something so important as talking with the animal world. It just is, there is something greater than ourselves.

Why am I talking this way with you, it just seems to come pouring out. Any how today I will not miss Church I am all ready to go when I saw your answer I have much to think about this morning.

always a better way my friend
Love Linda

I Love You Teddy Beah! Having developed a program where I take art to retirement homes and teach painting, I realized how much more fun and peaceful I have become now that I no longer call myself an Artist... but rather an art Advocate. Letting go of that Title and trying to be something that so many think they are , has allowed me to be free in sharing and enjoy the process, so much more.. Although this venture is mere pocket money.. I am always aware of any opening doors or windows and will allow Kismit in whenever I can. Thanks so much for the excellent posts.. as always!

I love you too, Shelley. You are the epitome (a person that is a perfect example of a particular quality or type, personification, embodiment, incarnation, paragon) of all I want to be.

I try to surround myself with folks like you that are interested in the affairs of their fellow man. After all, Shelley, at the end of the day we are what we eat and the company we keep.

Please never change. Live well and live forever.

Thanks Chris for the 2nd part of my Bible.

QUOTE, Mankind.
“Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
– The 14th Dalai Lama.

Thanks again for honesty and time,Tom.

WOW!! That seals up the sum of the whole matter, Tom. I have heard it said that man is the only creature that gets up when he is tired and goes to bed when he is not tired. A man is the only creature that can blush and the only one that SHOULD.

Thanks for the quote. I have recorded the saying to weave into my life.

Thanks, ole, boy!! You mean the world to me...you know.
