You can see it, but the reality won’t hit until later.

Sometimes when you are at a loss, you are at a loss.  Miss you Mom RIP.  Let’s start there.

You looking, your eyes are open, but somehow the reality of things don’t hit until later.  When it does, things will change in a major way.  Be prepared for the changes that are to come.

Food for the Fight

  

The Family Meal

You can be the top chief in one of the best restaurants in the world, however, when you have to prepare a meal with your family it can turn into Hell’s Kitchen.  Preparing a meal that will please the husband and kids is hard enough.  Let alone if it is a holiday meal for brothers, sisters, the parents, and the entire relative.  The sister only eats veggies, the kids like pasta, your husband wants one thing and your father wants that everyone expecting the preparation to fit their demand.  Your mother or one of the other family members may change your whole meal around as a suggestion.  The family will be examining your cooking ability while they are eating the food. There are only a few husbands who do not have any complaints about their wives ‘ cooking. 

At our house, the men look forward to showing you their ability to cook as well as any top chef.

Can you do the job of the professional?

There has been a story in the news from time to time about some who was pretending to be a professional.  People would pay and trust someone fo being professional, however, they found out later that is was untrue.  When you look at an ad for employment, would you apply even without training?  Most of us would not even consider it.  If you need a doctor, you would want him to be licensed.  That applies to any professional that you hire.  A doctor would never tell a professional dancer how to dance.  To become a doctor it requires a year of training, which applies to become any kind of professional.  I would never pretend that I know how to do surgery on a person, nor would I get up on a stage without a single lesson.  People say I know how to do a job, however, would you depend on someone to fix your car without knowing their work?  You should want to be a professional when it is your job at state, and keep high standards in your life.  

I am taking a class on marketing even though I have a degree in business, and I have worked in the business for years.  In college, I am sure one of the classes was marketing.  However, the things I am learning now are all new to me.

In fact, last night while in class, we were discussing what is marketing as a small group.  One of the people in my group kept rejecting all my thoughts.  She made it seem as if I did not know what I was talking about.  Even though, I had read up on marketing just before class started.  I like to be prepared.  In fact, I was looking it up while we were in the class, and she still went another way.

I am working on five different business ideals.  I don’t know which business ideas will sell; that is where marketing comes in.  I have five different business ideas, but it only takes one to be successful.  If you consider yourself a professional because you have worked a job for years, or because you have a degree, think again.  Things are happening every day there are changes; the advancement can make you feel as though you know nothing.  The class has some young and older students, who own or will own a business.  We all have the same goal to learn what are the best ideals, out there.  You would not even invest in a professional and not get the best results.

What you don’t know about there are ways to find out.  Business 101, know your product market.  That is what I hope to achieve from the class.

Do you want to be prepared to take your life to the next level?  To be your own boss or a professional you have to learn and know what is going on right now.

A Vision of the Future

Most young do not really vision for their future, until they are about the graduate from high school and sometimes not even then.  When we young, you make play doctor, teacher, or lawyer, but that is just having fun, as youths we are happy about the present.  

At the age of five, who had hoped for the future, by thinking about how much time and money it would take for a college degree.  We just want to focus at that moment learning simple math or spelling.  

We won’t be prepared for all the things that makeup is daily life.  The choices that even a young child makes can affect their lives later. 

With some of us even as adults, we are not prepared for life, and what it will take to be happy and successful.  We are in the moment of each day, not planning and thinking about the future.  However, time does going on; the future will be facing you sooner than you think.  Even though in some places they say the education system is failing, children today are learning more at a young age and facing more.

What is your vision?  Do you have a bucket list of things you want to do?  If you don’t have a list, make it now.  It is never to late to check off some of the things on your list.

I want to do?  There are so many things to consider and do regardless of where you are in life.

We all have things we Value.

Family Value

Family values have changed a lot over the years. It makes you wonder if there, is any family values anymore?

I grow up in a large family fairly large household with a mother and family and six children.  Most of the families in my neighborhood had two parents and lots of children.  All the kids when to school together and everyone had after school activities. 
Besides playing and hanging out with friends, we also participated in sports of some kind.  My mother each day would clean the house and make a large dinner because with a large family there was rarely leftover.  My father worked during the day when he returned home we would all sit at the table and have dinner.

Can a home that has a mother, a father and lots of children mean a happy family?  That was to be the American dream; however, these days, very few families are large. That does not seem to be the kind of thing most people now want in life.     It has been reduced to a man and a woman with careers, then maybe one or two children.

The value will be a deciding factor for your future?

Tomorrow Will Be A Better

Looking on that positive side of life.

There is always something happening in the world, including our lives.  We can look at the news and see what is going on in our neighborhood.  Somethings are shocking, others are sad, and then there is the reality f the life, around us.  Things like unemployment, people struggling to make it, and care for their family.  Life is not simple these days, we have to keep an open mind, and not focus on the negative.  We can’t have control of the final outcome of everything that happens, all we can do is pray for the best.  Think of how tomorrow will be a better day

Making A Great Cake, You Can Do The Same With Your Life.

When you are baking a cake, what are you hoping for?

1. You measure and put in the right amount of ingredients.

2. Everything has to be blended together completely.

3. Then you wait as it bakes the right amount of time.

4. Afterward, you decorate your cake, so that the end product represents you in the best way.

That is all you can expect in life, the best result when it is all done.

The Time and The Money

A hamburger may only cost a dollar depending on where you purchase it.  However, if you want steak it will cost you more.  You can’t expect to pay the same price for a hamburger as a steak.  
How much money would it take to care for the average family of four these days?  Most of us look forward to a family to be happy.  Is money is stopping you from having a happy life? 
You have to weigh both time and money when you decide on having a family these days.  Of course, a good job is an important part of it.    
The Idea Job

Most people have a job to make money.  Then you have to be able to manage both money and time well.  Some make good money in their employment, while others just make enough to pay the bills.  The ideal position is one that you like and can support yourself.  The whole purpose of what you do in life for employment depends on how much time you are willing to put in.  Your time is a big consideration when you look at the money you will make on a job,  as well as your plan for the future.  If you don’t put in the time don’t get disappointed about where you are today.

How much money would be enough for you? 

Thinking Outside The Box

There are always stories being told about something amazing that someone came up like a new product, or idea to make money.  People are making money in so many different ways like with videos on Youtube where a person has a chance to make thousands of dollars.  Have you ever wonder how these people come up with these things that are making money?  Most people don’t think outside the box with our ideas even though we all have them in our minds.   These people have something in common, however, a willingness to take a chance. 

Many successful people are inventors they have to work hard to get to the product produce.  These are the people who make things happen in a business, the chance takers.  Thinking outside the box is something that I admire about a successful person.  A person who only never thinks small they look at the show picture and how it can be big, taking a sour lemon and making lemonade.  I admire a person who has vision because the will see anything they do through.  Do you know people like that? 

Do you feel boxed in, as if you are not doing the things you want to do?  We all can because enclosed by a situation that happens in our life.  Many people don’t think of all the possibilities that life has available.  

You don’t have to be an inventor or the have money to step out the box, you just have to be willing to take a chance and do something that you have never done before.

Here are some ways to start.  In our daily lives, we get many opportunities to learn something new, do something different than a place to start.  Be creative with the little things is a way to open up your mind to new possibilities.  Offer to help someone with a project is also a way to train for something new.
