What's On Your Door, Nuthin'?

Written by Susan James

Someone once asked me: "How come children get what they want and adults don't ?"

I then usually ask, "Well, what's on ‘your' door?"

Lots of children, if they have some form of allowing parents, have pictures of horses on their walls and doors, and pictures of other stuff that they like and want.

If you'd study this a bit....you may find thatrepparttar kids haverepparttar 123873 stuff in their experience that is pasted on their doors and walls. As I write this I have two girlfriends with children who also have horses ! When you go torepparttar 123874 children's bedrooms, guess what's on their walls? Horses!

So, what'srepparttar 123875 catch? Adults think it's childish and messes uprepparttar 123876 walls and stuff. Therefore, Adults are too "big" to paste their dreams on their own walls, because, why? Well, it's childish and messes uprepparttar 123877 walls!

But it gets even more ironic. Many businesses have story or goal boards in their offices. Car Dealers have them. Movie and TV Producer offices have them. Have them, what? Walls that have stuff they want to happen, pasted up there!

We allow children to paste stuff up on our doors and walls, and successful businesses have their desires, goals and intentions pasted up on their walls and doors, but what aboutrepparttar 123878 rest of us?

What aboutrepparttar 123879 rest of real life? What do our families want? What do we as individuals want for our lives and lifestyles.

Are we just supposed to help our employers reach their business goals and desires, of which we may or may not receive direct benefit from?

What Will You Tell Your Grandchildren about the “Good Old Days?”

Written by Noel Peebles

When your children or grandchildren ask about “The Good Old Days” and what you were doing inrepparttar first decade ofrepparttar 123872 new century... those times of great prosperity... that “Golden Age Of Opportunity”… “The Greatest Entrepreneurial Boom In History”... what will you tell them? What were you doing? Did you capitalize onrepparttar 123873 wealth that was being created all around you? Will you tell them how you positioned yourself to take advantage ofrepparttar 123874 opportunities that abounded? Or will you explain that you decided not to take part, or how you just missed out? We’ve all looked uponrepparttar 123875 past as being “the good old days”…those times when life seemed so much easier, less complex… when life was slower, safer… and less competitive than what we are faced with today. Those wererepparttar 123876 times whenrepparttar 123877 best opportunities existed… allrepparttar 123878 best opportunities were snapped up years ago… weren’t they? And what aboutrepparttar 123879 little guy in business,repparttar 123880 small entrepreneur… he doesn’t have a chance anymore againstrepparttar 123881 powerful resources and might of those giant international corporate firms… does he (or she)? Don’t believe it! Almost every week without fail someone says to me something like “you were lucky you started inrepparttar 123882 direct marketing business when you did… there were lots of opportunities then…it’s too late now, byrepparttar 123883 time I get startedrepparttar 123884 market will be flooded.”
