Take Care of Your Self

Self T shirt

Self-worth

Do you know what you are worth? You should understand that you were created differently than every other person. This means you are special, unique, and gifted in ways that no one else can claim. If you ever question your self-worth, find someone that believes in you or something that reminds you of your talent. Your worth is infinite.

Self-esteem

Once you know your worth, you must work on how you feel about yourself. Who do you see when you look in the mirror? You should see someone who is good as is regardless of your situation or circumstances. You must believe are important, respected, and loved. Ind things that help you build up your self-esteem. You must believe you are worthy.

Self-talk

Pay attention to the things you say about yourself to yourself. Do you tell yourself good things or bad things? Remember, you are always talking to yourself and always listening to what you say. Therefore, the things you say must always be uplifting. Your self-talk must be encouraging so that it helps you remain positive and upbeat.

Self-care

You must start by taking care of your needs first. This includes your physical, mental, and spiritual needs that affect your health. You must take care of your body by monitoring what you consume. You must also take care of your mind by absorbing things that will benefit your health and well-being. No one should be more invested in your self-care than you.

Self-confidence

You must understand that you have what you need to be successful. You are good enough. Build self-confidence by reminding yourself who you are and what you can do. Use your self-talk.  It takes a lot of positive energy to come to this realization. Next, act on it so that you can move forward. Being more self-confident requires getting out of your comfort zone and taking action.

Self-respect

Develop a code of ethics that you will not cross. This is how you respect yourself. Avoid situations you know are not good for you. This includes people, certain places, and activities that will lead you astray. Listen to your conscience: that inner voice that tells you what’s right and what’s wrong. It will help you keep your self-respect intact.

Self-awareness

It is important to know how your behavior affects people and situations. Are you doing the right things? Are you saying the right things? How are people reacting and responding to you? You have a filter that tells you if your words and actions are appropriate and properly received. Use it. Again, listen to your inner voice for guidance.

Self-control

We all have limits and boundaries. It takes a great deal of energy to stay within those limits. Our world is full of temptation. Try not to fall victim to things that are attractive, but not necessarily good for you. It is a constant struggle. Yet staying in control allows you to focus on the things you need to do and say. No one can do this for you.

Self-improvement

By nature, we are all flawed individuals. The first step to self-improvement is recognizing this fact. Even if you have expert-knowledge, there is something else you can learn. There is also someone who knows more than you. Therefore, we all should seek ways to get better. Education and learning are processes that should never stop. Neither should your desire to get better. 

Self-help

There are so many ways to seek knowledge. There is plenty of book knowledge. The internet has an endless amount of information.  There are people can learn from too. However, the only way to learn is to seek.  Self-help requires you to get out there, look for information, test it, and use it as needed to improve your life and your experiences. You must learn and continue to learn for the rest of your life.

Self-education

The formal education offered in our school system is not enough. You must embark on teaching yourself. A good place to start is through external sources. Read everything. Another part of this process is learning from your personal experiences. See everything. No one else can see these lessons from your viewpoint. They are invaluable. What did you learn today?

Self-direction

You should know what direction your life is taking, and where you want to go in the future. Do you have a short-term plan for your life? Do you think about where you want to be 5-10 years from now? Without an idea, you will not be able to direct yourself toward the future you seek. Write down goals. Give yourself deadlines. This is how you move forward and in the right direction.

Self-reflection

A part of this process is taking time to honestly assess where you are and what you are doing. Are you on the right track, or off-course? This is a great time to review your goals and plans for making them happen. Reward yourself when you hit your target. Learn and improve when you don’t. Commit to trying again. Giving up if you don’t like what you see is not an option. Instead, redirect, refocus, and recommit.

Self-sacrifice

To get what you want, sometimes you must give something up for a cause bigger than yourself. You might have to help someone else get what they want, as a lesson to help you later. You might need to pause your efforts, to meet immediate needs. Often, the times you sacrifice your needs, you get time to see things from a different perspective. You get time to rest during your personal journey, temporarily, when you help others. Look for these opportunities.

Self-sufficient

In the end, the only one who can help you is you. You must learn how to depend on yourself. Learn how to support yourself because sometimes that’s the only support you will get. Taking care or yourself requires learning what you need when you need it. Next you must figure out how to satisfy your needs. You must also pat yourself on the back and pick yourself up when you fall short. Remember, you have been given everything you need to take care of yourself.

Self-employment

You are your boss. You work for you. Now that you know this, how can you be highly productive so you can be successful? Your life is your job, and the only one who can guide you is you. The only one who pays you is you. The only one who is responsible for your outcomes is you. Take care of yourself so that you can do a great job for yourself. You are self-employed.

 

Take care of yourself!

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Now

I can vividly remember some of the hysteria surrounding January 1, 2000. Do you remember Y2K? It was based off the erroneous theory that computers would not be able to process the date 01-01-2000. As a result, the world’s technological systems were supposed to crash, and wipe out all humanity because of our dependence on data. That was 20 years ago.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

I can vividly remember some of the hysteria surrounding December 21, 2012. Do you remember this date on the Mayan calendar? It was based off the erroneous theory that the world would end on this date because of the Mayan calendar. The end of the world  was predicted to happen thousands of years ago on this date. That was 8 years ago.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Even if you cannot remember these two “events”, please understand how time has marched past these two dates swiftly. We have moved forward in time. Before we know it, we will be able to say “remember back in 2019 when… that was 20 years ago!” Our recall of time will happen like this, because there is an old adage that applies here. The older we get, the faster the years seem to pass.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

What this means is NOW is the time for you and I to decide what we want to do with the time we have left. NOW is the time to write and execute your plan. NOW is the time to start a business. NOW is the time to take that trip. NOW is the time eat the cake. NOW is the time to start living, or just start living a better life.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Time will not wait for you. It never does. So why should anyone wait for the right time? I can guarantee someone reading this right NOW has talked themselves out of doing something because it was not the right time. It never seems to be the right time. But the truth is no one knows when it’s the right time, so the right time is always NOW.

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Remember this fact: nothing in life is guaranteed, including the time you have left to live. Therefore, since the moment we were born, we have been running out of time. This should be enough to get us to think about what we do from here on out. We need to use our time wisely. What will you do today to start making the most of your time?

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

We love to use dates as reminders, and in some cases, warnings about what is to come. Many people thought January 1, 2000 would trigger a financial collapse. Twelve years later, some thought December 21, 2012 would be the end of the world. Perhaps it’s time to think of the date January 1, 2020 as a new beginning instead of an ominous warning. It should be a date to signal your opportunity to get started. Next year is your chance to do it NOW!

2020 Is Four Months Away: The Time is NOW!

Mental Health Check: Who am I?

who-am-i

Sometimes I wonder if life is moving on without me. I am being left behind. I don’t fit in with the crowd. I don’t feel comfortable in my own skin. I am not a happy camper. I fight with things other people do with relative ease. In fact, it feels like life is a constant struggle. Things don’t go as planned. To cope, I have learned to fake it. I smile and laugh as I go through each day. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

There is a war going on inside my head. I am confused. It feels like bad luck is my best friend. It seems like misfortune follows me and shows up right on time. It hinders my progress. Something always gets in the way. The “good” news is I have learned to deal with it. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

I take two steps forward, and then circumstances cause me to take three steps back. Do the math: I am not getting very far. I am the quintessential hamster running on a wheel. I go round and round without making any progress. I am tired of running, but I keep moving anyway. I don’t know any other way. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

I see others who are “happy”. Maybe things come easy for them. They sure as hell don’t come easy for me. I try hard, very hard. I work hard, very hard. When will my effort and hard work pay off? Maybe it’s time to stop working. I deserve to take it easy so that’s what I’ll do. I’ll just take things one day at a time and “enjoy” life. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

My mind sends me mixed messages. Sometimes it says I will not amount to anything. It says: “Why try? You won’t succeed. You will get the same sorry result you got the last time.” Other times my mind says something different. It says: “Try your luck. Maybe this time will be different.” So I try again because I can still put forth an effort. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

I am your mother. I am your sister. I am your daughter. I am your wife. I am your grandmother. I am your aunt. I am your niece. I am your cousin.

I am your father. I am your brother. I am your son. I am your husband. I am your grandfather. I am your uncle. I am your nephew.

I am your friend. I am your associate. I am your coworker. I am your employee. I am your boss. I am your customer. I am your neighbor.

Who am I?

I live a double life. My mental health, attitude, and self-esteem is an important issue. This is why you should check on me as often as possible. Do not assume that I am doing well just because it looks like I am doing well. I could be hiding something. Sometimes the only “cure” is to hear from you. Maybe I need to talk to you. Even better, maybe I need to see you. Please take a moment to reach out to me.

Who am I?

I am anybody, somebody, definitely not nobody, and hopefully not everybody.

I need a mental health check.

Defining Success: One Word at a Time

Defining Success: One Word At a Time

by  Gary A. McAbee

 

Now Available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle

Synopsis:

The road to success can be a long, arduous journey. It is a journey that needs a step-by-step, clearly defined strategy to arrive at the final destination. To accomplish this goal, Gary A. McAbee has laid out a series of success principles, carefully placed in a logical order, which can lead to greater success. These principles have been used consistently by many of the highest achievers in our society. If they can use these concepts to reach success, then they can also be used by everyone to achieve victory.

The book Defining Success: One Word at a Time starts with defining and visualizing the end result: victory. From there, concepts like faith, passion, knowledge, and patience are introduced to the reader as building blocks toward success. Finally, the book ends with an all-encompassing definition of success. This definition, like all of the success keywords before it, includes the previous concepts outlined in this book.

Projects, known as Call-to-Action exercises, are located throughout the book as samples that can be used to supplement the success keywords. In essence, these exercises serve as written examples that allow the reader to work toward success. By completing projects such as The Success Book, Goal Worksheet, and Define Your Success, the success keywords and the concepts associated with each project come to life.

Defining Success: One Word at a Time serves as a road map to success. Make no mistake about it; the road to success can be daunting. Yet this book, along with the teachings and exercises it contains, is the ultimate guide to producing greater results. It is a guide book to reach the ultimate goal: higher achievement and greater success!

The Spirit of FEAR!

A Motivation for the World classic blog post…

Motivation for the World

Bible2 Timothy 1:7

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
(In some translations, the verse begins: God hath not given us the spirit of fear…)

Where does the spirit of fear mentioned in 2 Timothy 1:7 come from?

The Word says that the spirit of fear does not come from God. Therefore, it has to come from our spiritual enemy. You know; he is the one who comes to devour and destroy. Yes that spiritual enemy! We need to clearly understand that EVERY time we are afraid of something, it is one of the Devil’s tricks designed to devour and destroy us. This not is to say that we should not or will not have fear. Fear is a natural experience that everyone faces on a daily basis. However, we must be aware of those things that make us…

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

coins

Anyone who relies on their 9-5 job to pay their bills, entertainment, and necessities is playing a dangerous game. You are literally putting your “life” in the hands of your employer. Look at what’s happening right now with the government shutdown. So many federal employees are struggling mightily because they are dependent on the paycheck from the government job. Now that paycheck is not coming, and many of these people are feeling the squeeze.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

You might not be directly affected by not getting paid thanks to the shut down, but your employer could decide you are expendable. Years ago, when employers showed more loyalty to their employees, relying on one paycheck was a safe strategy. Now that employers are less loyal to their employees for various reasons, relying on one paycheck is a risky proposition. I suppose the idea is to work hard and the employer will reward you. The paycheck will keep coming. But what happens if it doesn’t? The bottom line is your employer will look to keep the company afloat with or without you.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

I am sure you have heard of downsizing. Downsizing is when a company cuts payroll in order to maintain its profits, or at least reduce expenses. It works for the employer. It doesn’t work for the employee, especially when the job is their only source of income. What happens if you get laid off due to downsizing? Another fact of life of companies either shipping jobs to other countries or closing completely. We rarely hear about how many companies relocate offices and jobs out of the US. On the other hand, we do hear about companies who announce a massive layoff or a shutdown altogether. Either way, the employee will be left without a job.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

If you find yourself in a situation where you job downsizes, ships your job overseas, or closes, I hope the paycheck you lose is not your only source of income. I know this from first-hand experience. A few years ago, I was laid off due to downsizing and eventual closure of the company I worked for. It was my only source of income. The good news was I received a severance package. The bad news was it would only carry me for a month. After that, I had to finish off my savings and most of my 401K just to make ends meet. Although I survived thanks to a part-time job that I kept once I got a new full-time job, the damage was done. Many people aren’t as lucky as me.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

The mistake I made was not thinking about what would happen if I lost my job. Another mistake was depending on that job as my only source of income. The last mistake was draining my “assets” because of my first two mistakes. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. Now I do. To protect myself from this happening again, I need multiple revenue streams. You also need multiple revenue streams, especially if you depend on your job as your only source of income.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

First, we need to be clear about what revenue streams are and how they are necessary. Revenue streams are things that bring in money. A job that provides a paycheck is a revenue stream. A service you provide the earns money is a revenue stream. A rental property is a revenue stream. An investment of any kind that pays a dividend is a revenue stream. Even a bank account that draws interest is a revenue stream. All these types of revenue are important because they are income that you can use as needed. The idea is to have more than one of these revenue streams to protect yourself and your lifestyle.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

As we have established, today’s volatile work environment means most families need both spouses working. This is an example of two revenue streams. But is it enough? It might be, but I think its better to have more than these two sources of income. Both jobs offer 401Ks that grow over time for funds that can be used in emergencies and retirement. It’s a start, but not the best example of adding new revenue streams. Like 401Ks, buying stocks and CDs (certificates of deposit) are revenue streams, but not necessarily worth pulling money out of when times get tough. We need to learn about passive revenue streams to get a clearer picture.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

Passive revenue streams are sources of income that can bring in money at any time. In many cases, this money comes directly to you instead of having the need to pull or withdraw it. We all need passive revenue streams. Many of these streams come from providing a service or services in return for money. Developing passive revenue streams require thought and planning. What things can you offer as services that people need and are willing to pay for? I have come up with a partial list to help you…

  • Write and sell an E-book
  • Start drop shipping
  • Sell photos on Shutterstock
  • Buy a vending machine
  • Create an online course
  • Write and monetize a blog
  • Sell on EBay
  • Monetize social media accounts that allow click per view advertising
  • Drive for Uber or Lyft
  • Buy rental properties

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

These are just a few examples. The good news is anyone can do one or more of these things. I will say that getting started will require a solid plan, a good amount of time, and maybe even an initial monetary investment. However, if you set up your revenue streams properly, develop and grow them, and have patience you may build sources of income that one day match the money you make on your real job. Building passive revenue streams take time, but the payoffs will be worth it. On top of that, you can protect yourself in case your employer decides your services are no longer needed.

Build Multiple Revenue Streams NOW!

On a personal note, I have a regular job and two other revenue streams. I am building 3-5 more at the time of this writing. After doing some research I have learned that many of the highest achievers in our country have 5-7 revenue streams that include jobs, investment portfolios, and selling services. They can withstand a job loss, as well as a downturn in the economy. They have learned how to build multiple revenue streams NOW!

I hope you learned too.

I have.

I created the Motivation for the World blog to have a powerful voice and positive impact. The articles posted are for all people who are seeking better results, self-improvement, and life-changing success. Along with my other blog, Wake Up/Rise Up, I get people talking about issues that affect us all.

I am the proud author of three self-help books: Wake Up! 42 Ways to Improve Black America Now!, the follow-up Rise Up! 42 Additional Ways to Improve Black America Now! , and Defining Success: One Word at a Time.
