"Recognize the Expert Within You - Passionate Knowledge Can Lead to Wealth"Written by Dave Hertner
I want to start this article off by telling you that you are an expert. Most people out there would initially disagree with this statement. I am here to prove to you that there is a wealth of information locked inside your brain that thousands of others would love to uncover !! The key to uncovering your valuable hidden knowledge is knowing your passion. It's that simple !! Every one of us has a deep passion that revolves around something. It could be your job, a hobby, a sport, politics or your family. Any activity that absolutely turns your crank, is perfect raw material that can be turned into a steady stream of cash. Let's think about what I just told you. I'm going to provide you a formula that will tap into knowledge that you ALREADY have that can make you a great deal of money. All you have to do is recognize it and write it down !! The best way that I have found to identify your passion is to think about a conversational situation where you found yourself talking someone's ear off. It may sound silly but this is a situation where you are passionately trying to convey an idea. For you to be passionate about a subject you have to have intimate knowledge and you are probably an authority on subject. You simply do not recognize it. Now that we have identified your passion we need to harness its potential. Your passion and information surrounding it, needs to be written down and then be formed into a saleable product. I call this 'Breaking Idea Out'. Take a notebook and state what your passion is on first page. On a separate piece of paper, list every little thing that you can think of that pertains to that passion. Try to do this in a start to finish order if you can as it helps in pulling it all together later. Each one of these listings should then be transferred to a separate page in notebook. These will be main
THE REFLECTION Written by Arleen M. Kaptur
You canít escape it - every time you look in a mirror there it is. It may be a pleasurable experience, or it can be a soul-searching, dismal attempt at facing world. However, you view or react to what you see in a mirror, it is not final word and it is not written in stone.
It has been said throughout history that truth of a person is in their face. Life has a way of etching out lines and features that reflect real person inside. Cosmetics, and other cover-ups wonít disguise heart and soul from being seen in eyes of person, nor in resulting facial features that are a compilation of what they have done, and what world has contributed.
What happens if you are delighted each and every time you see your reflection in a mirror? Well, by all means, carry on! However, if you are less than satisfied, and a bit timid about any mirror image, then its time to take stock and undo some of damage. It is not a case of just removing wrinkles or lines of time - after all these are character marks and should never be seen as undesirable. Wrinkles and lines are natureís way of showing others that you have survived ravages of whatever life threw your way and are more knowledgeable and more experienced than any fledgling without a wrinkle in sight. You have learned to love, care, and hurt. You are a living example of continuing on and crossing over numerous bridges, valleys and hills that make up a lifetime. You earned each and every wrinkle and line and be proud of it. You know many sides of sorrow and brilliance of peace and love. You have met tragedy and misfortune and have somehow overcome it. You are successful in traveling through life and living to tell about it. You are a source of knowledge and wisdom that youth can never have and pages in your lifeís book are filled with examples and stories that only living daily life can provide. You can see through candy coating and still enjoy sweetness.
Now what do you do if you are not pleased with image staring back at you? Is it too late and are you forever stuck with this reflection? Absolutely not - because one feature that takes prominence in any likeness in that piece of glass is eyes. They are mirror to soul and door to heart. If your continence is less than what you want it to be, begin working on improving it immediately. A change of attitude, or way of dealing with people and situations will add a different slant to your eyes. If your heart has hardened, then open it to everything and everyone around you. See others as just traveling companions through this journey called life and know that they too are facing problems and setbacks that only their heart is capable of relating.
