Apprenticeship

Everything I’ve achieve I have a apprenticeship to thank.

First I achieved because someone was compassionate enough to take the time and teach me to do better when I was a troubled teen. 

Next the biggest part of my success. Since someone cared enough to give me an apprenticeship, I now want to do the same. I use social media as chance to do that. It’s made me very influential, and every part of by apprentices lives in my work. My apprentice has influenced the world.

The new Republican agenda in work force development is very important to me. People below the poverty level have been left behind. They’re left to live on government rations. And until now no one was willing teaching them how to do better. 

Many of these people aren’t cut out for higher education, and now company’s are signing up to teach and hire low skilled people technical skills that are needed for better higher paying job. At this time in our economy we have a shortage of people with these kind of needed technical skills, and a grow poverty of people. Everyone one wins.

Gov. Bevin in Kentucky has taken it a step further, and is trying to change the dynamics in the communities below the property level. In these communities many children grow up without fathers to teach them about healthy relationships, and how to support a family. He’s using people who’ve done well in the community to mentor trubled youth. Family units are an important part of economics success. And bevin’s trying to fix these communities.

This is only something that can be curbed with the love of Christ. 

Republicans are giving it there best effort, and even if nothing changes, and it all fails; I will go down with the ship. I encourage people, and business to become influential too, and change the world by teaching someone.

Clarification of what you want out of life.

I’ve never heard anyone cover this topic this way so here goes nothing.

People are sabotaging themselves by not having clear expectations of what they really want out of life. They make statements like I want to be a millionaire but it’s not really what they wanted. Or at least their actions didn’t match their words.

Take for instance some factory workers I know. They want to be millionaire really bad, but their actions tell a different story.

After working at a good job for a year, they go buy the biggest car the bank will give them money for. 

If they were honest with themselves they really wanted a car, and they should be very happy with themselves. But the car’s bleeding them dry. 

The interest sucks five or six hundred dollars a year out of thier pocket. Then they lost thousands of dollars in depreciation. The interest, and depreciation money that could be used to become a millionaire by buying a business, or saving and investing. That’s what millionaires do. They save and invest in many different accent types.

They were never happy because they wanted something different then want their actions proved. They’ll never become millionaires because they don’t really know what they want out of life. So they stay angry.

When I started out I had a very clear vision what the end game looked like. I wanted to be a real estate investor that could pay cash for everything. I didn’t want to be a millionaire. I wanted to be a big guy at auctions.

So I saved a lot of cash, and I bought the best cheapest truck I could find. My actions completely matched my words. I had a relatively large bank account with no interest bleeding me dry.

It’s a recipe for happiness. My actions completely matched my words, and I was getting exactly what I wanted out of life.

Deep reflection of a better person

If deep reflection is easy for us as individuals, it’s easy to become a better person.

A person that loves our children, and significant other better. A person who handles business better. A better leader or CEO.  A person that’s more deeply rooted in faith. 

Faith is very easy to evolve in because the Bible is makes a strong connection on who that better person is.

We have to know what that better person is first. We have to know how that better person’s Behaviour’s. We can read and learn about that better person.

Through deep reflection of that better person, we can grow into that better person.

Reflection Is Key To Changing Our Behavior

We can learn to be better at almost everything. We can edit our soft skill, and behaviors. We can do it by deeply reflecting on everything. We can learn to be leader’s, and CEO’s.

I used to think leader’s were born, but with all we now know about neuroscience we can grow in just about any direction. In the future soft skills will be more important then technical skills. If we can lead, and inspired people to take action we can get promoted in leadership roles.

I started deeply reflecting on myself in my midteens while I was into rodeo, and it stuck with me. I try to relive my days at night. Most often while getting ready for bed. I’m alone most of the time because of self reflection. I really like that kind of mental stimulation.

I reflect on my short comings, and difficulties with honesty. I think of skills I need to get better at, and make actionable plans. I think of all the reasons I succeeded, and double down on the behavior that lead to success.

It’s important when we reflect on ourselves to be completely honest with ourselves, and not justify bad Behaviour that led to disastrous results. As leader’s failures, and success is a result that we have to own.

Blame, and jealousy is easy. Or is it?

Blame, and jealousy is really just an easy out. A simple easy way of saying I’m to lazy to try. 

I believe it leads to more discontentment, and it’s a slow agonizing spiritual death. It’s a life full of shame.

The hard work is to take responsibility for our short comings. It’s not for the intellectual lazy.

With all we know about neuroscience we can change. We can reprogram our thoughts. We can get better at things. We can learn to think like (insert person you’re jealous of). Therefore achieve thier success.

I live a spiritually free life because I’m not a victim. I work hard to rewrite my think to success. If I failed I don’t give up, I rewrite again until I succeed.

As a result I don’t carry spirit killing irrational emotions.

The creative space

In the creative space your ideas just as good as mine, or just as good as someone who’s highly educated.

The difference between a successful creative and a non-successful creative is one’s test thier ideas against the market. They’ve put themselves out there to be rejected. The fear of rejection’s why people never test thier ideas.

 Over time we can develop some horse sense for what works. But many maketing ideas are creative, and they where just a guesstimate.

How simple is the idea of McDonald’s to bring the food out to your table? Or how about Papa John’s pizza that comes with peppercinis in the box? What about movie theater popcorn with lots of salt so people buy drink because their all of the sudden thirsty.

Take a look around, and you’ll see people’s ideas everywhere. Most of them are really simple, but they are business sound ideas. Better service, and more value.

It doesn’t take an MBA come up with these ideas.

What about social media? It’s user generated content. Your a social Human, as all of use are. Most of use create content everyday. Why not test our ideas against the market.

The conclusion is people simply get paid to brain storm ideas. People like you and me. The only difference is they proved themselves over thier career.

There’s two ways to learn how to do anything

There’s two ways to learn how to do things. 

One way is by school, that’s the easiest way. We can get a clear format on how to do just about anything. In school we learn all the formalities that blend us with the majority of people who work in higher skilled jobs. We spend a fortune in tuition, and hit the ground running.

Then there’s the hard way. The route that I took in life. The hard way’s learning by simply doing it. It takes guts to learn this way. By simply doing it, we will suffer as the fools we are. We will swallow our pride by rejection after rejection until we get it right. 

Through trial and error we can learn. Then conquer.
The biggest stall here for people is they don’t want to start out at the very bottom.

Take for instance my writing. I’ve made a fool out of myself thousands of times. I’ve been laughed at, and made fun of, but I get better at it every day. Now I’m able to use my writing to progress.

My first website would’ve embarrassed a fifth grader, but the new website I’m working on will be much better. And hopefully a money maker.

We have to get started if we want to succeed, and grow our skillsets that make us more valuable in our companies, and in our businesses. You have two choices.
