The things I’m grateful for

It’s very hard times right now; for me.I have nothing right now. I’m stripped down to my most basic form. So I’m going to write down what I’m grateful for, as a form of reinforcement.
For the most part I’m happy giving the circumstances.

I’m grateful that I don’t envy much. I see people who have a lot and envy for what they don’t have. Them people will never be happy.

I see humor in so much. Which means I get in a few laughs a day.

I get more, and more love, and respect everyday for my work.

I see more discontentment in my enemies then I’ll ever have.

This is me in my most basic form. It’s the foundation for happiness that I’m built on. Hard time’s will pass but a solid foundation for happiness will with stand the storm.

The value vs the have

Liberals only see the have. Their infatuated with what others have. They only care about how the created lives. Their willingness to bring down the value to get even with the have. It’s destructiv to the value.

They don’t see the value of the creation. The value is what the creation brings to the world. I.e. jobs and great thing that are pleasant, or affordable substations.

If we stop concerning ourselves with what others have. And care more about the value their creation brings to the world, we will be in a lot better shape

Making connections

Successful brands make connections with people. The connection makes people feel some kind of way. The Spectrum of connection goes all the way from bad publicity to good publicity.

I rode in rodeo for a 1 1/2 years. Rodeo’s most loyal followers come to See specific Cowboys, and cowgirls ride. The cowboy that made a connection with them. The Cowboys had their own personal brand. Some where the bad boys of rodeo, and some where really good guys, or the sweetheart’s and all in between.

A product or brand must make a connection to be successful. The consumer can feel relevant, or relieved. They can feel happy or sad. They can feel like they’re buying into the smartest, funest, or best way.

But to scale there has to be a strang connection between the brand and your customers.

People and their pessimistic view of other people

People like to look down on other people because it makes them feel better about themselves. So they take a pessimistic view of others.

It run rampant in the psychiatric industry. Time after time I read about psychiatrist and their pessimistic view of people with autism. Time after time autistic people prove them wrong, by high achievements.

I have autism and schizophrenia, and I know how I overcome schizophrenia. It’s a mind set, along with drugs. Basically I reprogrammed my thinking, and coping skills, along with a little self medicating.

I manage to work long hard 12 hour days, while having strong symptoms of schizophrenia; which is unheard of. 

Psychiatrist Shirley have a pessimistic view, and can’t believe I did it. 

Isn’t it time we look at people for all they can be, and stop talking about what they can’t be. Which in part is reciprocation.

Doing hard things

The hard things are easy to spot because that’s where you can find the most growth when you look at all the opportunities, or fixes of bad situations.

Successful people tackle hard things. Four instance: “I need a large amount of investment capital. I will get the Capital I need by making tuff decisions about how I spend, and earn.” This is a big one. “If I get this done life will be easier!” The bigger the if, the better the opportunity will be. 

It’s easy to stay busy all day by tackling little easy things, but there’s no real opportunities in them.

Reciprocation

The way we treat people is almost always reciprocated back to use. You treat people like professionals they treat you like a professional. You give respect, and they give you respect back. 

If you treat employees like competent people who’s highly qualified, they dont want to let you down. After all they know you believe in them, and they’ll live up to your treatment.

I was passive (growing up) towards people and it was reciprocated back to me. They passively dealt with me. I was the least of their concerns.

Little Karl isn’t so little anymore

Everyone called me little Karl growing up. I was a little guy. I wasn’t destined to become what I am now. I use to expect to earn a good living by being passive. I made open ended deals on a firm hand shake. With a trusting servant’s heart. I did people right. 

I still do people right, and seek to serve them, but now in a different manner. With a attitude if you will. Years of battles made me tuff. I stay ahead of them, and fully expect them to hold up to their end of the bargain. If not there’s contingencies.

I tried to get in on everyone’s deals. Time after time I was told about what I don’t have. So I worked my butt of to earn money for these thing. Time after time I would start to get ahead, and someone would raise prices. Or I would get stiffed. Sometimes I would have to look for a new place to live. And loose it all over and over again.

I watched a friend and mentor get stiffed out of a million dollar Real estate deal they invested two years in. Then get stiffed out of a $50,000 draw by bankruptcy. 

It took a toll on me. I soon leaned I had to be tuff, smart, and always on top of my game. 

As a result little Karl, ain’t little Karl anymore.

Feeding the hungry

Christian missionary in china wrote: “Any man of genius is paralyzed immediately by the thought that his efforts will bring him punishment rather than reward.” 
That man of genius maybe the next Steve Jobs, and hire 115,000 employees, or put the employees children though college, put a roof over their head, and food on the table.
Why does government want to demonize these people by making them public enemies. The prosperity of earth’s people depend on them.

It’s Monday
