Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Even though life is not always fair, God is fair. And He promises in Romans 8:28 that all things will work together for our good. J Osteen

It’s how you approach life. You can get bitter, or you can say, “This is not going to defeat me; it’s going to promote me. It’s not going to hinder me; it’s going to help me.” God wouldn’t have allowed it unless He had a purpose. Joel Osteen

“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” Luke 10:2 There is so much to be had. There are so many opportunities to be successful, prosperous, abundant...whatever you want to be. Yet, we fail ourselves because we do the routine that we are accustomed to. “Go! I am sending you like lambs among the wolves.” Luke 10:3 The “wolves” are your distractions. Your nay-sayers, your negative talk, your time wasters. Do the work daily, that others won’t do and you will find yourself in a place that others can’t reach.

Have you ever talked to someone and realized in the first 10 seconds that they were clueless about what they were talking about? Have you ever talked with someone and realized in the first 10 seconds that they Owned the Space they occupied? They knew their stuff and had remarkable belief. Doubt and belief cannot occupy the same space! Own the space you occupy with a belief that cannot be shaken!!!

“I pursued my enemies and destroyed them, And I did not turn back until they were consumed. "And I have devoured them and shattered them, so that they did not rise; And they fell under my feet.…” 2 Samuel 20:38-39 Who are your enemies? Are they your limiting beliefs, Your negative self talk, Your handling of money, Your fear of relationships? Whatever is holding you back you must seek it out, confront it and destroy it. Not just for a week or a month but for a life time, so they never come back to hold you back. Be-Aholic Peter Remington Prepare4More.info

Here's a way to craft your pitch where it's not a pitch.When asked "What do you do for a living?"I would say "I decided to spend more time being a dad, so I am building a business from home that some other dads told me about, and it's the best decision of my life!"When they ask "What type of business?"Then I would say... "You know how people need funding for their startup but they cannot get money from private equity nor banks? Well most people don't know where to go from there. We fund them what they need when they need it for as much as they need it without taking equity nor being debt on their books. We help them buy up all of these boomer generation companies for sale to grow at an amazing pace too. Isn't that amazing?"Do you see what I'm doing here? I am not coming off like a salesperson, but rather describing the benefits of what we offer, wrapped into my answer. Often people will ask further questions and express interest. If they don't, I can always ask if they would like me to send them info when I get home and ask for their email address. Cool and subtle.

Proverbs 18:21 says that life and death are found in the words you speak. No one else chooses the words that come out of your mouth. That choice is yours alone. Stop saying “I’m not…” and start declaring, “I AM,” Joel Osteen

The first place we lose the battle is in our own thinking. If you think it’s permanent then it’s permanent. If you think you’ve reached your limits then you have. If you think you’ll never get well then you won’t. You have to change your thinking. You need to see everything that’s holding you back, every obstacle, every limitation as only temporary.

Give Firsters live lives of faith and no fear. Takers desperately grasp for everything they can get for fear that it may be the last.

Don't have anything to give to your network? Start with your two ears. Listen to them. Ask questions like "who do you need to meet?"
