Hello there, It’s The Teddy Bear. It’s Such a Lovely Day in Dixie. Come Sit With Me a While. I want to talk about something called Massive Value, Success in Business, Integrity in Business
I want to talk to you today about Massive Value. This will be the first part of what I hope will be a blessing to you. Now, before we start…Disclaimer…I’m definitely not the Paragon of Excellence. I’m not the Bishop or Paragon of anything. Please think of it like this. I’m just one beggar trying to tell another where to go to find bread.
The Teddy Bear’s 2 Secrets of Success
Now I know that these two secrets to success that I am about to give you are going to go headlong against the norm of both America and also the mentality of the world at large, especially the Labor Locals. What is the first one? I’m Glad you asked.
#1 Always give more than you are paid for!!
Give Massive Value in everything you do. Do not relax, do not quit, do not say, “it is good enough.” The thing that is going to change your life and your income and change your business is this….WRITE it DOWN. You must change your standards.
Your life is much too big to allow you to think too small. Too damn many of us are not getting what we want, we are getting what we have to have. Sure I want to survive, but what I really want for you and me for the sake of my children and the Online men and women of tomorrow is not to only survive but to THRIVE!!
A Little Spanish
I’m going to teach you a little Spanish. !NO MAS! The old norm is not enough!! Make new choices and get new standards and develop new habits and realize your new goals and achieve them. Without a vision, people perish and the people who do not have goals get used by people who do have goals. If you do not want to get sheared then stop being a sheep!!
When do you relax? Simply put, you don’t.
Don’t do that!!! Never relax and for your own sake don’t quit. Sleep if you must, but never relax and don’t you quit!! Develop more than habits. Habits have limits. YOU>>>>develop rituals. Rituals are going to be the driving force that will push you beyond your limits.
Maybe it is someone else’s fault. Maybe it was for a time but it is on you now. “As a man believes in his heart so is it unto him.” Were you born a victim? I was. The baby of Eight with a daddy 43 years old when I was born who had 15 brothers and sisters that he raised because of a sorry no good for nothing daddy who stayed drunk and beat his family and my daddy being the oldest male was raped out of his youth in a time that education took back seat.
He then had eight….count them…EIGHT… children of his own and I was his baby. He was a tired broken down old man when I was new. He was educated alright, a second-grade education and a college doctorates degree from the School of Hard Knocks. He grew up during the Great Depression and his baby brother – 18 years his junior, who at the age of 4 had a two-day-old biscuit blown through his heart along with the baby’s thumb by the 12 gauge shotgun of daddy’s sharecropping neighbor who accused him of stealing.
I remember the rotting floors of a two-room shack that my mentally unstable mother swept for hours while literally crying out loud because she just could not seem to get them clean. I remember being the least of the eight with little to eat and nowhere to sleep and no one competent or caring enough to watch after me.
I thank God for these memories. Why? Blood simple, what does not kill you makes you stronger. In the era I was raised we were known as “purdee Ole White Trash good for nuttin but killen.” The one thing that the affluent white folk that surrounded us in the Alabama of the 1960’s and 70’s hated worse than a black man.
They Held Me Back.
They held me back!!!!!!…..till I was 12 and I found and fixed a broken down lawn mower at a trash depot on the outskirts of where I called home and the “haves” called the Bottom. I pushed that thing till I was 14 years old and had earned enough money to buy my own clothes and food and even gave daddy money and when I turned 16 I moved out on my own. I have never looked back and those folk who thought that they were something that they were not being vainly puffed up by reasons of fleshly minds are dead now while I live, yet not I but the Faith that Lives within me!! I WILL NOT settle for less than I deserve. I am IN FACT a Bear!!
Necessity is the Mother of Invention and inventions lead to other innovations and today I consider myself the most blessed person on the face of the Earth!!
I demand the best, of this world, of others, but especially of me. The Golden Rule demands it and I will NOT I will NOT I will NOT settle for less. I’ll Die First!! I hate Oppression.
I am an American fighting man responsible for my actions and dedicated to the principals which made my country free. If Necessary, I am prepared to lay down my life in the defense of those principals which made my country free.
Mainly this, the fact that ALL men are created equal and endowed by the Creator with certain inalienable rights. These include but are not limited to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.
Some Men of Renown
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and First Cheif Justice John Jay. Names synonymous with the spirit of America. These and other great men were the founding fathers of the USA. As a matter of fact, history records that Noel Webster, who wrote the first dictionary could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse. These men believed that you could not even call yourself an American if you subvert the Truth of the Word of God!
Some of the truths that I hold dear.
I believe that it is never right to do wrong and never wrong to do Right. I believe that the heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart. I believe a man can do more with a hand-up instead of a handout any day. I Believe that a man all wrapped up in himself makes a very small package. I believe that man often times does not behave right because he does not understand right. I believe that the past has a way of coming back around and blindsiding you and will put a boot in your ass at a very inopportune time.
Why does man not understand right? Because his rule of measurement is flawed. It’s easy for you to just stretch yourself alongside the ole Teddy Bear here and proclaim that you are as long as I am. One problem with that flawed thinking that proves to me that your mind, body, and soul lacks cohesion. What is that fact? I’m not the standard.
In the upcoming parts of this series, I am going to be discussing who are and their habits so you can start to gauge yourself by the greats. If I have ever seen anything it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.
Tune in tomorrow and I’ll give you the second secret of success and we will continue this talk about Massive Value, Success in Business, Integrity in Business
