"I BELIEVE THAT You don't get into something to test the waters. You go into things to make waves"
Fighting the negative is a total waste of time. If you really want to make changes in your life, the more you dwell on what you don't want the more of it you create. The more you talk negative about yourself the faster you bring it into existence. Speak what you want to happen! God creates new things out of nothing! Abraham heard God's promise and believed it. When God speaks its as good as done!
Move away from the negative, and put your attention on what it is that you really do want to be and accomplish the CALL God placed in your heart. What did God call you to be or do on planet earth? What drives you? What would you do in your life if you could do anything?
Learn to think in terms of scripture. If what you are working hard to accomplish isn't happening yet, continue to speak the scriptures out loud and thank God every morning when you wake up for what He is doing in your life today to bring it into existence!
Tomorrow you are one step closer because of what God did. Pick one thing that you can do that will demonstrate your discipline to move closer to who you want to be. What is that one thing you can do every morning?
Successful people have one thing in common and it's a routine they do every morning no matter what is going on in the world around them.
If you don't know what to do tomorrow morning start by saying these scriptures out loud as soon as you get up;
Did you grow up with someone older telling you to "get your head out of the clouds?" Have you ever heard the saying the best time to plant an oak tree was 30 years ago, and the second best time is right now!
Well, I do love the beauty of oak trees but I prefer fruit trees over hardwoods because the "fruit" just keeps on giving, kinda like a residual income! I have always encourage my kids to daydream and play with ideas and goals to let their mind be free and removed from the dogma imposed by others. Society always eventually will say "hello" to inventors, creators and writers with their MONEY!
My family is essentially aqua-holics and love anything that has to do with the beach and water! My family has always had a fascination with the power of the ocean and we have lived on the beach since we got married! You can read a chapter of how great the ocean is in my husbands book All Or None! The Biblical account of earth and the breaking up of the "fountains of the great deep" (Genesis 7:11) keeps us in a life long study of this wonder of the world! The science of minerals and skin health is another favorite of my biology major kids! Seawater instantly clears up skin issues especially acne and my kids noticed this when they were younger.
Today, they hold patents in 5 countries for synthetic seawater and built a digital business, hired attorneys, filled out business licenses, created an e-commerce website and so on..... just think where that may lead too!
The key to success is knowing what is coming in the future! A few decades ago we specialized in healthcare because we saw the fast-food and chemical food industry explode which we "translated" into healthcare dollars which paid off huge for our family!
Right now I am currently focused on geriatric care because the aging population was 46.2 million in 2014! By 2060 there will be 98 million older persons, twice that of 2014! I have also moved my personal primary care model digital into Telemedicine and I am focused on counseling and behavior modification to address chronic disease patterns. You can read about that by clicking here!
This brings me back to you, as a virtual "student" you should focus on starting your something! I suggest you take a "required" elective course over in the College of Humanities at your college and get some ideas going! Did you know that the U.S. Department of Labor projects technology careers may grow by as much as 30% by 2022! Why not take some electives in graphic design or technology!
Multi-media hands-on understanding is far more valuable than lecture courses. If you're not in a school that has moved coursework onto digital media, the school is behind the curve not only in course work but also in leadership that is going to cause you to FAIL in the new high tech world. So make the adjustment now!
The future is summed up in two words "graphic design." It doesn't matter what profession it is from business to medicine to fashion the trend is the same and that trend is digital media, digital illustration, and portfolio development to execute ideas, solutions, and the transfer of economic wealth!
Its not just about skills anymore but its about time management, communication, organization, attention to detail and of course "natural talent" that must all come together in attention grabbing graphic design executed to perfection!
This IS the future and the money is in the market place! This needs to get translated into your head as the money is in the digital market and the best graphic design WINS as people click away and purchase your products!
I tell students when they ask me about college majors; "get your head in the cloud" and see the shift that is coming in the IT world. Plant your "storage" computing TREE today....with your mobile optimized job postings of course!

Another product I want to tell you about is "liquid sunscreen." This product works great and will protect you from the sun and let you absorb Vitamin D, not break out your face and I personally use (and my kids love). Read about it more over on their company site. You will need my provider CODE to purchase products which is 5662. Click Here to visit Medical Professional Osmosis Skincare.
This sunscreen water is great for kids and swimmers who struggle with the sunscreen burning the eyes in water. I look forward to reading some peer reviewed studies using this technology in the future!
To use the liquid sunscreen you basically put 1-2 dropper-fulls under the tongue 20 minutes before sun exposure.
You need to re-take 2 dropper fulls every 2 hours AND if you are at the beach you need to double your protection. Use the best and least toxic sunscreen you can afford and you also need to cover-up during those critical peak hours around high noon! The rays are so intense and skin cancer is epidemic!
Who doesn't want more productivity and personal growth in their life!
49 Steps To Personal Spiritual Growth can be accomplished during the time known as Counting The OMER!
I have been posting and counting the Omer this season but if you haven't seen my post on FB start now! Jump in because tonight is day 10 which is one week and 3 days of omer counting and you have to go to day 49! Today is April 4, 207
The Omer is the "time" between Passover (Exodus from Egypt) (Jesus Death) to Shavuot (The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai more than 3300 years ago) and also known as Pentecost for Christians (Holy Spirit descended on the followers of Jesus after his death, resurrection and ascension).
Omer Counting is described in Leviticus 23:15-16. This practice is done each evening after nightfall from the 2nd night of Passover until the night before Shavuot. Join in with all the world who is omer counting and watch something happen in your spirit man/spiritual energy! Link at bottom to learn what to say!
Shavuot (Pentecost) is the most important holy day to Christians and Jews respectively! If you are not Omer counting jump in and START TONIGHT! Clean out you body and mind with nightly prayer after you say the blessing! I know you will sleep better and as the days go by you will begin to actually "feel" the physical change. A peace begins to resurrect in you!
Why not try some fasting say one day a week, or commit to daily exercise or push yourself harder in your workout each day. I have been encouraging my patients to pray about purchasing a home infrared sauna for home management healthcare as the detoxification of chemicals is profound!
While you are Omer counting examine your nutritional supplements, possibly start juicing or at the very least incorporate more organic meat, dairy, and plants into the diet. Finally, my kids are "downloading" this practice as I do it! I'm changing the world one person at a time! Also, if you forget to count did you forget to pray that day? Working on forgetfulness is also very healthy and thinking about the time and praying is mindfulness and good for the brain!

BA-RUCH A-TAH ADO-NAI E-LO-HE-NU ME-LECH HA-OLAM ASHER KID-E-SHA-NU BE-MITZ-VO-TAV VETZI-VA-NU AL SEFI-RAT HA-OMER.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right
We can see the breakdown of communication before our very eyes, it becomes all the more important to commit ourselves to open dialogue and communication grounded in decency and respect. Likewise, we must remind ourselves that our communities are “shared by all or many,” and it is precisely in the gray area of these diverse viewpoints in which we will find, in the words of Pirkei Avot, the Divine Presence.
For example, let’s look at what happened with students protested Vice President Mike Pence from delivering the Commencement Speech at Notre Dame. The tragic outcome left me thinking these students are surely destined to a lifetime of pacifiers, and safe circles inside a cocoon. America is a public, political, theological, democratic, arena full of logical apologists who live in the real world. It is Notre Dame's tradition to invite first-year presidents to give the commencement address. In 1981 we had President Reagan, 2009 Obama, however, shortly after election day John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame, said he was reconsidering the tradition of inviting new presidents to speak at commencement.
Rather than deal with the media attention and invite President Trump to speak, University President Father John Jenkins made the decision to invite VP Mike Pence to give the Commencement Address. Father Jenkins said he didn’t “want the surrounding controversy to distract from the central purpose of commencement."
My take on this is simple, Notre Dame students checked their brains at the door. Students are expected to be able to think critically. The university is a point of study and intellectual base where students develop and exercise critical thinking skills in a safe place, even if it includes a room full of political opposing viewpoints. When did logic die? America IS a public, theological, democratic, arena full of apologists who live in communities. This student rant is diagnostic of lack of academia standards and importing wisdom into students through knowledge as a path to unity and community. It should not be a challenge to sit through an accomplished speaker giving a prepared “motivating” Commencement Address with hospitality and respect from our elected President or VP of the United States!
The press claimed the protesting campaign consisted of students holding white boards featuring quotes from VP Pence that are "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, offensive, or ostracizing" to members of the Notre Dame community. Rather than take this opportunity to teach students "how" to apply logic and critical thinking skills, Rev. Jenkins lowered himself to "we the people" illiteracy.
Why would Notre Dame dismantle a self-professed tradition by declining to extend an invitation to the new US President at their May Commencement Ceremony? The University of Notre Dame is America’s flagship Catholic University. The mission statement reads the Catholic identity of the university depends upon, and is nurtured by, the continuing presence of a predominant number of Catholic intellectuals. This ideal has been consistently maintained by the university leadership throughout its history.
Vice President Pence, was raised Catholic. He served as a Catholic youth minister and like most believers consistently works to unite Catholics and Evangelicals to promote a faith based on the Bible.
It is fitting that in the 175th year of the University it would recognize its native son who served the state of Indiana and now the nation the honor of this year’s commencement speaker.
Can you imagine a protest at The Islamic American University, one of the most renowned Islamic colleges in the US if Keith Ellison was asked to speak. Their mission statement is to educate Muslim students about the Quran as well as the deep-rooted Muslim traditions, known as Sunnah. Islamic colleges are private institutions just like Catholic and Evangelical colleges each with deep rooted aspects of their faith.
Protesting Vice President Mike Pence from speaking at a "Catholic" University is as ridiculous as it would be protesting Islamic converted Keith Ellison from giving a commencement speech in America because of his conservative faith. Would students protest and call him homophobic or racist?
Keith Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress. Islam is clear in its prohibition of homosexual acts. Islamic scholars cite the following for condemning homosexuality, based on their teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah:
I read this great commentary on Leviticus 9:1-11:47 by Rabbi Justin Goldstein. He states that communication is the foundation of community and we are literally having separate conversations.
When seeking to establish a community grounded in values and decency, it becomes easy to view those who share a different perspective as an enemy or an adversary. Yet, the Jewish tradition comes and pushes us to see beyond this black-and-white dichotomy — to step into the gray and learn what discernible truths there may be even, or perhaps especially, in those viewpoints that contradict our own.
We give precedence to viewpoints to which we already adhere, and we find ways to dismiss those ideas that seem to contradict that which we already believe.

NEVER pay the crazy mark-up prices on sunglasses again! You can purchase any of your favorites from a great authorized dealer who sells all of Luxottica sunglasses at very discounted prices!
Products exist in our minds but Brands live in our hearts! However, when it comes to eye-wear all the brands seem to live in ONE HEART! One company owns all or most of the brands but you can shop at Fast Sunglasses and get around this eye-wear monopoly! Here is how the story goes.......
It does seem at first that eyewear is an example of competitive capitalism but it is not and in fact is a monopoly in disguise. Luxottica is the world’s largest corporate player in the eyeglasses industry. The company owns more than 30 different brands of frames, including names like Anne Klein, Burberry, DKNY, Oakley, Polo, Ralph Lauren, Ray-Ban, Versace, Abaco, Bolle, Armani Exchange, Dolce & Gabbana, Vogue and many others. Luxottica controls retail shops, including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical and Target Optical. It also owns the EyeMed Vision Care group, a vision insurance company. It makes all frames in company-owned plants in China and Italy and sells them in about 130 countries.
Luxottica is the proud owner of China’s Modern Sight Optics, a leading Chinese optical retailer. Luxoticca sunglasses and prescription frames fill the shelves for designer brands such as Chanel, Prada, Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tiffany, Versace, Vogue, Donna Karan, Burberry, Prada, Tory Burch and many many others. Besides LensCrafters, its retail subsidiaries also include Sunglass Hut, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, Target Optical, BJ’s Optical and Cole Vision Care. More than 200 million Americans are affected by vision loss with the average price for a pair of eyeglasses around $300 & fees only going up!
My bottom line advice to you is buy the Luxoticca stock and spend your money at FastSunglass Designer Eye-wear Discount!
I am planning some family time when all the FAM gets back together again for the Holidays!
My head is spinning with all the election news coverage and I'm kinda feeling like either a NYC Broadway Extravaganza with my kids or a FOREVER moment cycling through the quaint, small streets of Giverny!
We as American citizens are either going to embrace a new destiny in leadership or we might just want to escape far away & dream about the past surrounded by history and beautiful Monet's Gardens, Art and a 900 year old church of 1814!
I've checked out some great deals that you may want to know about if this election coverage has got your mind on taking a long break after its over!

Entrepreneurial Investment Fact....
Did you know that it was Les Wexner who ultimately purchased Victoria's Secret from Roy Raymond & his genius idea of exclusive lingerie underwear stores that men don't feel like they would be accused of being a thigh-rubbing perv if they shop there!

The most important goal to achieve at a young age is how to save money! A survey last year by Goldman Sachs found that 43% of millennials weren’t interested in spending more than an hour, in total, getting investment advice. Now, I know people who follow me are way smarter than that!
When I was around 26 years old I really wanted to master my financial success. I found the greatest biblical & financial minds and I followed their work from that day to this day. I raised my own kids with exactly that same success formula and I have outstanding results and I have to say my kids are doing better than me!
Part of success is dressing for success! How you dress speaks really loud but if you purchase clothes or any items that you cannot afford because of the "label" or you "care" about what your friends think, you are making a HUGE financial mistake. Wealth is built day by day with every decision and every bad financial decisions will cost you greatly.
The first step for any young entrepreneur is to commit to NO DEBT and purchase On-Sale items. Learn now that contrary to Bernie's feel the burn, "nothing" is ever FREE. Everything on earth that you want to have requires "daily" hard WORK. My friends if someone told you your GPA doesn't matter they lied to you. If your GPA is low so will be your income. It is the mindset that your friend hasn't mastered and if you listen to them and party in college or worse graduate with low grades and a worthless degree you have made another HUGE financial mistake.
Wealth is Built one decision at a time!
