Post image for Why Are Some People Successful and Others Fail?

Why do some people achieve success and others fail? The list is very long, but I will attempt to identify some of the reasons. After all, we all start out with potential and yet we never achieve success. As a teacher, I often hear reasons (excuses) why they never mastered math or passed English. The reasons range from bad teachers, no parental support or lack of skills. What is your excuse? Read More…

Then again, you can find just about everything on sale somewhere. Online retailers are constantly discounting their products and there are always coupons for discounts and free shipping. I f you look, you can find everything on sale! Read More…

Post image for I Am a Stud!

Much to my surprise, I understand that women think I am a  Stud! Not that it matters much to me because I have been out of circulation for a very long time.

The ladies in particular! What makes me so cool? Read More…

Post image for How Do You Overcome Fear?

Despite my age, I can remember when I did not fear anything!  Although it was a long time ago, I wonder what changed. Fear is a survival mechanism that makes us pull away when you see something or someone dangerous. I often hear that most people’s biggest fear is public speaking, although I have heard people express fear about a variety of subjects and situations. What are you afraid of and how do you overcome your fear? Read More…

Post image for Do You Plan or Plan to Fail?

I plan because I do not plan to fail!  If you have goals, you need a plan to make it happen. A budget is a form of a plan.  Why budget?  A budget is supposed to help you achieve your financial goals. More people spend more time planning a party than their lives!  If you do not see the need for planning, you probably do not have goals, direction, focus, attribute luck for any results and not accountable for anything!

Post image for How to Change your Life Forever

Change is difficult!  It was so much easier when I was in school and I just wanted to improve my grades. All I had to do was change my behavior!  You know, go to class instead of cutting, study instead of letting my books collect dust and do my homework. All the things, I was not doing! Now let’s apply this solution to everything else. Read More…

Post image for It’s Never Too Late to Be What You Might’ve Been

Once you reach a certain age and find yourself surrounded by all the typical markers of adulthood — family, home, job — it’s natural to reflect on the path you’ve taken and wonder if you’re on the right course.

Post image for Where Am I and Where Am I going?

2013 is half over and I just thought it is a good time to take my temperature! In case you are wondering, I am not lost nor did I just wake up from a lost weekend.  Jet lag is out the question since I have not been on a plane in a couple years.   No, I am not sick and I am really talking more about financial health anyway! You cannot know where you are going until you know where you are! Read More…
