Living The Dream

Even our little friend here has found the key to enjoying life. With all our ambition and goals we very often forget that this is not a dress rehearsal, and it is all happening right this moment. There is nowhere to go, and nothing to get.  

A great reminder for us to appreciate the present moment is to observe children or nature. We can learn far more about the essence of life and happiness by observing our child or pet.

We tend to take so much for granted, and neglect to appreciate what we have right now. When we get all caught up with what we “have” to do, we miss so much. For one, we often fail to give ourselves appropriate credit for all we have already accomplished.  Instead it becomes all about what’s next, or all we have left to do.

When we get caught up in this type of spiral, it easily equates to much stress and overwhelm.

 

When We Were Kids

Can we remember back to when we were small children, and we got pleasure out of the simplest things. Now, many of us may have had emotional or outright abusive childhoods, but I am talking about those moments when we simply enjoyed what we were doing.

We can learn a lot when we remember those times and transfer a little of that into our present existence.

After many years of working in the mental health field with children who were severely abused, I am very grateful and appreciative to have had the opportunity to assist them in letting go of some of the pain, and rediscovering their True Essence. And it’s that True Essence which we must rediscover within ourselves in order to live fully satisfying lives.

 

Nowhere to Go, Nothing to Get

When it finally sinks in that all our rushing here and there, emailing, texting, sacrificing happiness for a future time, putting up with things we dislike etc. is keeping us away from the one thing which we all desire, which is happiness.

Success in any area of our life is not anything we need to go find, but it is something we already possess. This is what creates our current foundation on which we design our life. We get to create that design any way we choose.

Without being happy now, we will not be happy then, regardless of what we attain or accumulate.

 

A New Perspective

When we see things differently by changing a few of our hardcore assumptions and beliefs about people, ourselves, and the world in general, what we discover is an entirely new landscape. Possibilities open up, which we did not “see” before, although they were most definitely there.

The bottom line is that these are all things we can control, once we “slow down” enough to see we are out of control quite a bit of the time, and we not living a life of purpose and joy.

It comes down to “how” we think, and not so much “what” we think. Breaking our habitual patterns of thought and consciously choosing “how” we will think, gives us a new perspective to design our life, and Live the Dream we have inside of ourselves.

 

Slow Down, Enjoy The Journey

Now goals and action are important, but the key is when to take action, and being conscious enough to enjoy the process.
The fun of skiing downhill is not when it is completed, but the excitement and joy which takes place each moment of the experience. Every decision and action we take is important. These should be taken when we clear on what we truly desire, so that we can more easily enjoy what we a re doing regardless of what is going on around us, or what we have to deal with.

Results come more easily when we let go of having to have things work out a certain way. It is at this point that a certain kind of “knowing” kicks in, and we then proceed with the “certainty” of success.

Enthusiasm, passion, and inspiration are what drive us to create the design of our life any way we choose. When we are truly conscious that we are actually designing our life, we then realize that we are Living Our Dream right this very moment, and the journey is where it’s at, and not so much our destination.

To your Present Joy, Happiness, and Success,

Joseph

 

Easing Our Way Out Of Our Comfort Zone

Whatever we do in life it is a journey, not a race. It may take a minute, an hour, a month, or a year or more. None of that makes a difference when we have a clear destination of where we truly want to go. The first step is “to begin”. The size of the step is absolutely irrelevant. 

Successes and mistakes along the way make the journey fun, as long as we “know” our destination, and getting there is something which excites us. Passion then becomes our fuel.

 

The Challenge Of The First Step

Whenever we are faced with a challenge which takes us beyond our usual self-imposed limits, we do experience a bit, or at times a lot, of fear and trepidation. This is to be expected, and can be handled one little step at a time.

The biggest challenge is often just to get started. Once we do, we are surprised of what opens up before us, leading us in directions we never would have considered.

After that, it is just a matter of taking the next step.

 

What’s Next?

When we focus only on the next step on our journey, which we are able to “conceive” as doable, because we have already taken that first step, then we are able to move forward without procrastination.

Granted, there are times that we need to take a leap of faith so to speak, and jump into that deep end of the pool, but normally we are able to ease our way out of our comfort zone little by little. We then realize that our comfort zone wasn’t really that comfortable at all.

Dealing With Uncertainty

When we expand our comfort zone, we are venturing out into new territory; that can be a little scary. But that is where the rewards of our efforts reside. We discover things about ourselves which we never knew before. We just feel good about what we are doing, even when we are not sure absolutely how to do it.

We become like kids again where learning is fun and adventurous.

At this point we begin to welcome uncertainty, and look forward to what the next moment will bring. Our potential is unlimited, and we discover this by easing our way out of our comfort zone.

For those who would like to begin a new adventure in learning and business building, check out my review of this incredible Community of Successful Entrepreneurs. These are a bunch of folks at all different levels of success, who have one major thing in common:  they are all Easing Their Way Out of their Comfort Zones.

The magic really is in the Present Moment!  Each moment is precious, and that is where all the Action is.

All the very Best,

Joseph

P.S.  I welcome your comments, and also your sharing of where you are, and where you would like to go.

An Unexpected Bonus On Our Journey

Whenever we begin something new, we can expect to meet with a good deal of resistance from ourselves. This is basically because we are asking ourselves to edge out of our comfort zone, and experience some uncertainty. For most of us that is not a pleasant thought.

But when we do, we can expect a few pleasant surprises along the way. 

 

 

A Different Outlook

For one thing, we begin to look at things differently than before. We no longer dismiss suggestions which may take us in the direction which we desire to go. We have a greater tolerance for making mistakes, and actually see these errors as beneficial, as they lead us to the correct choices.

With this different outlook, much of our anxiety and fear dissipates of its own accord, without us having to do anything about it. As our comfort zone expands, we begin to realize that previously we were not all that comfortable at all, even with all the distractions we managed to put in place.

When we see things differently, the stuff we look at actually begin to change as well. New opportunities, which were there all along, incredibly become visible to us. We are willing to make choices which take us in the direction we have selected as ideal.

 

Consciously Living A Life Of Purpose

Each one of us has a unique reason for being here right now. All the frustration, anxiety, and doubt leave when we discover what that is.

We are inspired to do things for many reasons, which are personal to ourselves. But the underlying reason we all share is to Be Happy. And the funny thing about this is, we can Be happy right Now, as happiness is a choice.

When we choose to be happy now, we don’t have to wait for things to be just right, or have to have this or that happen before we “allow” ourselves the gift of happiness.

When we consciously accept where we are right this moment, we have a starting point from which to progress. When we resist where we are, we lose the energy which we need to make our goals and desires real.

 

The Bonus Is Who We Become In The Process

As we set goals to do this or that, or achieve this or that, we will be creating many new habits, and our mindset will experience a drastic change. Which is all good. The ride may get a little bumpy, but the fun and excitement is in the journey itself.

When we change in one area of our life, we cannot help but change in all areas. Evidence of this will be people commenting on how different we seem. We are able to retain all of our life enhancing qualities, but let go of a few of the ones which have been holding us back.

This is how we create a life of Passion and Purpose.

Some of us will pursue many things we have put off for one reason or another, or may have been just too timid to do. Whether it is skydiving, traveling to parts unknown, mending a broken relationship, public speaking, or creating an additional income in a way which is both fun and profitable, we will discover that all this has come about as a result of Who We Have Become.

For those who would like to explore some fun and excitement in creating a new business source of income, check out my Review of this Online Marketing Training Platform.

Live with Joy and Passion,

Joseph

HIGH TICKET SALES

Their high ticket items are water ionization machines from a company called Enagic. They have several machines from which to choose.  I have been to the Enagic home office and have seen their products in operation.  These are very good products but are a bit pricey.

 

Price

$99 per month, or a $997 for an annual membership.

The membership is a recurring $99/month fee. When your recruit affiliates, you earn 30 percent commission every month. When you have three people in the program, the monthly $99 is covered.

The Fast Track Triple Pack (FTTP) runs for $297. If you decide to purchase the FTTP, the first $99 you spent joining DGL is applied toward the $297. It is an additional $198 for access to all of DGL’s systems and training.

Enagic products range from $400 to $9,600. Which products you buy (if any) all depends on your goals and resources.

DGL teaches both paid and non-paid advertising. Paid advertising usually starts at $5/day which is the recommended minimum.  No paid advertising is necessary to get started with DGL. Their training guides you on how to build a winning campaign, optimize it, and scale it up, regardless of ad budget.

 

Concluding Thoughts

It’s too early to give an overall review on their training as they are still relatively new, but their overall approach and presentation indicates you can market any product or service with their platform and succeed given the proper commitment to learn their system.

If you’re interested in starting a business, want to earn additional income, or just want to be your own boss, DGL could be a great option, especially if you don’t want to do it all on your own.

DGL is also involved in Change Making activities which support people around the world by donating a percentage of their profits to NeverThirst, an organization dedicated to connecting communities to sustainable water resources.

Only A Decision Away

Anytime we desire to start something new, or go somewhere we haven’t been, we often find a resistance welling up within us. This can be scary, and there is a part of us that does not do scary. It’s called our ego. And even when we are experiencing a lot of stuff we don’t like, it is much safer to stay put. But there is a part of us which enjoys new experiences, and realizes that what we really desire is only a decision away.  

A Life Of Routine

We do so many tasks each day on auto pilot where we don’t even need to consider what we are doing. Whether it is driving our car, washing the dishes, mowing the lawn, talking on the phone, getting the kids ready for school, and so much more, we are able to do these things effortlessly because they have become our routine.

Since all these activities have become no brainers so to speak, we do not doubt our ability to get them done. We easily focus on what we need to do and do it. Doubt and resistance only sets in when we are unsure of how to complete a task. Dealing with uncertainty is not our favorite hobby.

So the majority of time we much rather stay put, than risk coming out of our comfort zone and trying something new.

Our Comort Zone Is Not So Comfortable

If we were truly content in our comfort zone, we would not have these desires to do and experience more in life. The feeling within us to expand and achieve would not be there. We would simply be content with the status quo.

Abraham Maslow was an American Psychologist who created a “hierarchy of needs”, which is a theory of self actualization based on us fulfilling our innate human needs. Here is what he has to say about expansion and growth:

“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.”

No one has ever said that this type of change and expansion in our life is easy. That is not the point. The point is that it is possible, and only a decision away.

Breaking Out

I am speaking now to those of you who really want this. Many of you, like myself, may have had a lot of bumps in the road, and either quit or seriously considered it. I am very grateful to be someone who did not quit and never will.

There will always be challenges in life, and this is what keeps us ever expanding and growing. Within those challenges we discover parts of ourselves which we never new were there.

Successful people who you know or are aware of are constantly doing stuff they are not absolutely sure how to do; they learn as they go. An airplane is off course the majority of time and requires readjustments to stay on the proper route. The same occurs when we drive our car. We are always adjusting the steering wheel to stay on course. There is no difference with our life.

We can most definitely break out of our routines and habits which comprise our current comfort zone, and increase our level of risk little by little. But this will not happen overnight, and most likely we will need the proper encouragement and support to keep us focused and on target.

Having a support group which encourages, teaches, and celebrates our progress is absolutely critical in breaking out of our current routine in order to get the results we really desire. And I for one, invite you to join our support group of like mined entrepreneurs who get their mos satisfaction in seeing others grow and succeed.

Now for you, this is Only A Decision Away!

All the Best, Joseph

Why Making Money Online While Retired Makes Sense

There are many ways to make money after you retire, but I want to point out a few of the reasons why making money online while retired can be a good lifestyle choice. 

First, once you have everything set up it is just a matter of creating a daily routine and working at your own pace. You are free to set up your own schedule which best fits your personal needs. This does not mean this does not require consistent effort and focus; just like any job or business, you get out what you put in.

Another reason is that you are able to create income streams around what you really enjoy doing. Rather than taking any old job to supplement your income, you are able to learn new stuff and design a business around your life.

Create A Positive Lifestyle

Once you learn the basic ins and outs of online marketing, you are then able to scale your business to any level you so desire. You are able to not only work when you desire, but also where you desire. This is a trued portable business which you can operate from anywhere in the world.

It is just a matter of “deciding” what area of business you want to concentrate your efforts. If you enjoy cooking, there are numerous ways to use the knowledge you have, and learn more if necessary, to create an ongoing income. And this is the same for golf, knitting, scuba diving, plumbing, bookkeeping, health, fishing, chess, designer clothes, woodworking, coaching, personal development, skydiving or any other activity or skill you can think of.

A market exists for all these areas right this moment. The potential is limitless!!

The Potential Of The Internet

The internet isn’t going away. More and more people from around the world are getting online each day. Smart phones, computers, and smart TVs are now commonplace. There is one integrated system for media these days. We live in a digital world.

Online banking is a big part of our lives today, and blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are also emerging into the spotlight. Large companies no longer just compete among themselves, but with the low cost of computing power, the home based entrepreneur is now a major presence in this competition.

Way back in the 1960s, Gordon Moore, one of the co-founders of Intel Corporation, made a few mathematical observations which evolved into what is called “Moore’s Law”. He observed that engineering allowed the miniaturization in semiconductors to create a situation where computers can be made four (4) times more powerful every three (3) years for the same cost.

This is why marketing, even for traditional brick & mortar businesses, is going digital. And what this means for anyone who desires to create a large or small online income is Unlimited Potential!

I wrote an article specifically devoted to Baby Boomers in regard to marketing and sales.  Take a quick view of it here; it is called Baby Boomers and Marketing.

The Merger Of Industries

Computing, communication, and media companies have come together and merged in order to serve this evolving marketplace. Social media is an example of consumers accepting and living in this digital environment of ours.

Media content, computing power and information processing have merged.

The only question is how we can best take advantage of this current scenario to benefit both ourselves and others.

Practical Steps To Take

Whatever your current skills, or lack thereof, in the digital world, is just what it is. This is your starting point. From there you begin to educate yourself, and get things set up correctly.

Forget the fads, and the golden goose, or whatever you want to call the majority of junk out there which is being sold. It is of “Utmost Importance” to position yourself within a Digital Community, where resources are shared, and thus allows you to maximize your own unique talents, abilities, and skills.

This is the true meaning of Earning While You’re Learning.

Additional Courses  Travel

They also offer additional courses beyond the main membership to assist you with marketing and scaling your blog. These aren’t necessary to create a successful travel blog, but it is nice to know the info is there if you want it.  There are additional fees for these courses.

It also has a Travel Writing for Bloggers ($97) course to increase your writing skills.

Again, these additional courses are not necessary to bring you blogging success in the travel niche.

Concluding Comments

If you do not have any interest in travel or blogging this is not for you. This is definitely not for everyone.

This is ideal for someone starting out who wants to concentrate on the travel niche, or someone who has a travel blog now but isn’t earning the income they desire and wants to learn how to increase profits and take it to another level.

This course will help you narrow down a niche within the travel industry so that you are not competing against the big brands like Expedia.

To succeed as a travel blogger you have to have patience and a strong interest in this area.

There are a lot of travel bloggers out there, but most do not have the drive and experience to make a significant impact in this market.

Travel Blog Success will take you step-by-step in learning how to create a successful travel blog.

It all depends on you and your level of passion and interest. If you are committed to this niche, this is a very valuable resource to have.

Make Money After Retiring

Although there are folks who are quite comfortable financially after retirement, there is a significant segment of the population who would very much like making money after retiring. This can be for a number of reasons. 

Many people find it challenging making ends meet and have some funds left over with which to enjoy themselves. After all, most of us would really like to relax and do stuff we like to do now that we have the time after a lifetime of labor. Whether we enjoyed our job or business during our working years is not the point here.

We quickly discover, if we have not already done so, that money is freedom and makes our life a lot more fun, tranquil, and harmonious.

Bottom Line: Money Is Important

As indicated previously there are specific reasons we desire more money. It allows us to do things, when we want to do them. It allows us to enjoy ourselves, as well as be in a position to do things for others. Some may think that Ayn Rand, the Russian/American novelist and philosopher, was harsh when she stated something about helping the poor by not being one of them. But it is a lot easier to be generous when we are financially secure ourselves.

I have found the key to making money is to add value to the lives of others, and then we are automatically taken care of. When we provide a valuable service, people will benefit and want to spend money with us. People recognize that it is to their advantage to do business with us.

When we have as our focus helping others solve their challenges/problems through our product or service, making money is a no brainer. It is the natural outcome of our efforts to do good.

Many Ways To Make Money

Of course there are numerous ways to make money when retired, as there was before retirement. I see many people working in retail positions, as security guards, do handyman tasks, consulting in areas of their expertise, etc. And for some folks this works well for them.  They desire making a few extra bucks/or more, and then head on home, or just have an activity that gets them out of the house.

On the other hand, for many of us like myself, I have chosen to be un-retired because I choose to earn money doing things I really like to do. All that I currently do is like a hobby to me in business and non profit work. And for those who would like to increase their income and enjoy the process, I am here to verify that this is entirely possible for “You”.

Here is an article I wrote called Baby Boomers and Marketing, which outlines a few ideas of how to get started earning some additional income.

Opportunity Is Everywhere

Once you tune into the possibilities of creating and designing a lifestyle which you truly desire, you will find yourself on a totally different wavelength, where you will notice opportunities which before you would have simply walked by and ignored. They would have been invisible to you.

One of the main reasons that I am an Un-Retired Entrepreneur is because there are just so many ways of making a difference in the lives of others, while creating prosperity and abundance for all involved. This has become a lifetime journey for me. It is never ending.

Recognizing Our Value

The really cool thing about all of this is not only the fact that we can make money and enjoy ourselves along the way, but it is who we become in the process which is the most beneficial factor. Each of us brings a unique set of values, abilities, skills, and creativeness to the table. Discovering how we can utilize what we have to benefit our self and others is a real eye-opening experience for many of us.

Whether retired, thinking about it, or nowhere near retirement, discovering our true value in this crazy world of ours opens up so many doors which we never even realized existed. It’s hard to walk through a door we don’t even see. If you are at a point in your life that making a few extra bucks/or even more, makes sense, then make a decision to commit to yourself that you will discover your true value, which you can then share with others, and thus benefit them greatly.

Here is a Review of a very viable vehicle which may very well be the Unseen Door!

Baby Boomer About To Retire

This was something I had once contemplated years ago; the time would come when I would be a “baby boomer about to retire”. Actually, at the time, I thought that it would be a good idea. But as the years rolled on I quickly discovered that when you truly enjoy what you do, why would you want to ever retire? 

Now, don’t get me wrong here. For those of you folks that have either retired already or are soon planning to, and this is what your truly desire, then most definitely go for it. I know many people that are enjoying their retirement, and having a fun time of it.

But for the folks like myself, there may be one or more reasons to consider the “Un-Retired Lifestyle”.

The Un-Retired Lifestyle

I personally decided to become an Un-Retired Entrepreneur because I truly enjoy what I do. That does not mean I won’t cut back or eliminate aspects of my current work status, but it does mean I will always be involved in those things in which I am most passionate.

During my working life I have had a dual career of sorts, working both in business and human services. I enjoy the challenge of both.

In human services, I have been most fortunate to have been able to touch the lives of many adults and children with specific challenges in their life doing counseling and rehabilitation work. This has scanned the spectrum from children and adults with autism and developmental challenges, to children on probation, gang-affiliated, and mental health challenges.

On the business side, I have enjoyed working in the world of technology through business development activities in the executive search world as well as mergers and acquisitions. I have also helped companies grow and increase their brand in a variety of industries.

At this point in my life I have found that I can pick and choose what I most desire to do, while enjoying plenty of free time to do other activities.

The Illusion Of Retirement

The conception of work as something that is hard and/or undesirable has created the illusion of working hard so that one day you can retire. Does doing something you don’t enjoy for several years, so that one day you can have what you want, make any sense? Do you really think at that point you will live happily ever after in comfort without any stress?

Personally I don’t think so.

To achieve an enjoyable life both before and during retirement requires quite a change of direction. We must change our ideas and assumptions in this area.

When work is like a hobby there is no need to retire. Work becomes something we want to do, not have to do. At that point we will have to find reasons not to do it, not reasons to do it. This then becomes a conscious choice, and not an unconscious reaction to something undesirable.

Regardless of where a person may be in their life right now, creating an Un-Retired Lifestyle is just a process with a series of logical steps.

It’s silly to give up most of our life doing stuff we are not truly passionate about, in order to later retire. Also dependent on one’s financial situation, unless we have enough saved up, we will be living om 25% of what we are used to. This will require cutting back in a few areas in order to make ends meet. And finally, most of us are hard workers, which means that shortly after we retire we will be Bored Stiff!!  retirement alternatives

A More Pleasant Alternative

Now the path which I have chosen as an Un-Reitired Entrepreneur involves working on stuff I choose to do and enjoy, while taking sabbaticals or mini-vacations a few times a year. But for me, even at those times I will do some work here and there because I have created a portable business, and its something I really want to do.

Here is an article I wrote called Baby Boomers and Marketing which outlines a few ways to increase your income while retired, or while just contemplating it.

It is absolutely possible to create an active and passive income to supplement your retirement funds and pay for your necessities, while also having the time to do whatever else you want to do. This is a viable alternative for anyone, once you DECIDE it is. Forget any noise in your head that tries to negate this. Too many people have already done it, and you are no different.

Live life fully from wherever you are right now, but be open and receptive to a:
