Who are you?

Self Image

Who does self image effect? Who cares about your self image? Who knows about your self image?

The answer above is not others, the answer is you! It's always going to be you.

We spend so much time worrying about what others think of us. We are always worry about how we are perceived by others. In the end we are only worrying and stress about ourselves. That worry and concern becomes what others see, they never see what ever it is we want them to see.

I have this issue, not near as bad as it once was, but I still catch myself worrying about how I must look. What I have learned to do is be aware of myself and stop myself from worrying. Being aware of yourself is not the same as self image. Being aware is very important so you can learn more about who you are and to help build confidence in yourself. The better you know yourself the less you worry about others and how you look. It's a great feeling when you can just be you and just "be".

We are who we are and from time to time we need others to tell us. It's hard for people to admit they are not what they think they are. It's even harder to accept that we can never be what we want to be. I can never be a lead singer, I can never be a great painter, but I can be play a part in a great band, and I there are many ways to be an artist besides drawing.

We have be selfish and only be concerned with ourselves. We can never do anything in life for others. This may seem to be the opposite type of thinking, but what it means is just do what needs to get done for you to be happy and as long you are right minded and conscious of others then those things are going to help others.

You can't be concerned about what you leave behind, only be concerned about where you are going. And only "you" can get there so you are the only one "you" need to think about along the way.

Please take the time to go read The way of the Superior Man by David Deida and also listen to as much David DeAngelo as possible. These concepts are not just for men or just for trying to pickup. They are life lessons on how to be the best person you can be and how to succeed at everyhting you want. Another great book on how to just learn to be aware and in the moment is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

I was going to try and start doing these emails with out the daily guru, but they are so good and I think they needed to be shared. Some people then think this blog/email is just me coping out by using the guru but I don't see it that way. I see it as me passing along some awesome insight and adding my spice to it.

The part in this guru where is says the faster you grow the faster you wither. But the slower (I'll say stronger) you grow the longer you'll last. Your idea/business needs a strong foundation to last the test of time. Look at the Billion dollar companies in the word, and then how long they've been around. I could throw up a quick website and spam a crap load of people and make a few thousand dollars, but then it's gone. But what if I setup a site that made steady hundreds and lasted the test of time. It would take longer to reach the same amount but the second one would keep on going.

Here's a simple money quiz.
- I just got 6K
- I have a 6K loan that is costing me $600/mth for 1 year
- I have an offer to buy a house for 6K that makes $300/mth
Where do you put the money??

Play with the numbers and see where your break even number is based on time, input and output. Don't forget to keep in mind every month a payment is made on that house more equity is being put in your assets. Then take that thought and think about how much in the hole the house can put you each month before it's not worth it. I have a house I loose money every month. I made money when I bought and the value of the house increased every year, and mortgage keeps getting paid off. Some people think I'm stupid, so to shut them up I bought a house that made money and now I break even :0


Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
Many people take the first step and stop.
Yet, with every additional step you take, you enhance immensely
the value of your first step.

All masters of success are chiefly distinguished by their power
of adding a second, a third and perhaps a forth step in a
continuous line.

There is no royal road to anything.
One thing at a time, all things in succession is the rule of life.
That which grows fast, withers as rapidly.
That which grows slowly, endures.

Do not despise the bottom rings in your ascent to greatness.
