Hear Me Out


As I watch Monday Night Football, I find myself thinking about expectations. In all walks of life you are expected to do certain things. How we interpret these expectations is just as important. You shouldn’t put expectations on certain things. That’s when you get upset, let down or disappointed. If you only deal with facts and take the emotions out, you will developed more realistic expectations. You know the people you hang around, you know your job, you know your significant other, and you know yourself. If don’t put unrealistic expectations on things that surround you, you’ll never be let down. Think about it. The last time you were let down by your expectation of something, was it an emotional or realistic expectation?

Traffic Dos and Don’ts: A Checklist


Everybody that has a blog should read this article!

The WordPress.com Blog

One of the main reasons bloggers stop blogging is lack of traffic: at some point, they get tired of being the proverbial tree in the forest, making sounds nobody hears.

We’re here to help. No list of advice can guarantee your blog’s success, but it’s important to be aware of the most critical elements at play. Five dos, five don’ts: give them a try.

Dos

  1. Write regularly. Producing fresh content on a regular basis is essential. First, it makes your blog more appealing to search engines, which means new readers are more likely to find you. Just as important, it creates a sense of loyalty among the readers you already have, who know you won’t be stranding them for weeks at a time.
  2. Write well. What makes a post engaging, moving, or entertaining is clearly a matter of opinion. What’s not a matter of opinion? Correct spelling…

Subject/Theme: Fear

Quote: “I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and still I had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”

Quote by: JK Rowling

When it’s put that way, knowing where you don’t want to fall is just as important as where you want to go.

It’s Friday Night


Tonight I took my wife on a date to the movies. She likes romantic comedies, I like crime dramas, and action. So you know what type of movie we went to see. Being with her has made me do more compromising than usual. I remember the time when it was all about me. Now, it’s all about us. I must say, she hasn’t picked out a bad movie yet. Not my kind of movies, but entertaining sometimes even enjoyable. I don’t mind doing the things she likes to do. But she never asks me to do something she knows there’s no way in hell I’ll do. We fifty fifty in this thing called marriage. My point is, compromising doesn’t make you any less of a man. Matter of fact it makes you a better person, and opens up your mind to things you otherwise wouldn’t consider. Just think how would your life be if you wasn’t open to try new things?

P.S. Baggage Claim was a decent movie, predictable, but decent. Paula Patton is pretty ass hell!! I’d be seeing blurred lines too!!

Subject/Theme: Belief

Quote: “You become what you believe. You are where you are today in your life based on everything you have believed.”

Quote by: Oprah Winfrey

This is true. If you believe certain things and don’t question them, then you will end up average just like everybody else. Seeing is believing. Depending on what you see is what you become.

Hear Me Out


The older I get and the more I read, I have realized that we must change the way we think. Eliminate negatives words, thoughts, sentences, etc. By changing the way we speak about things, it will change your outlook on life. I hear people say a lot, Man I can’t afford to pay that, in investing opportunities for themselves. How about saying I can’t afford not to pay that. That phrase alone changes the way you look at things pertaining to investing in yourself. Another example: I can’t afford to save money. Like my mom always says, you can’t afford not to save money. Always see the positive and make the future that you want to happen. Don’t settle for doing what society says you should do, i.e graduate high school, graduate from college, get married, then have kids. Screw that. Get to that futuristic point in any way you can, legally that is. Don’t always do the status quo. Make up your own rules in appliance within the law. Think about this, what would’ve become of Michael Jordan if he quit basketball after being cut from his eight grade team, or if Eminem would’ve graduated from high school?
