Compromise is not a bad word


There is nothing wrong with compromise as long as you stay true to who you are. You would think that compromise is a foreign idea in today’s political climate. To much time and energy is being wasted on staying within the party line. People forget the title of where we live is the “United States”. It’s easy to put people in a box and label them, but some people forget that we all come from somewhere different. Trust is on our currency but it needs to be in our leadership. People may not like what you say when you serve in the leadership role but they will respect you if you speak from the heart.


“We the People” is etched in stone at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia PA. I’m not a Philadelphia native, but as a two-time military veteran, I know first hand about the sacrifices many have made for us to say this is the land of the free and the home of the brave. To whom much is given, much is required.

Leaders that are likable collect more followers when they give value and they hold firm in their beliefs. People can sense sincerely and are attracted to it. Positive has a bigger draw than the negatives. The biggest musical hit of the season a few years ago was “Happy by Parnell Williams”. It was upbeat and people are sang it all over the world.

Jim Rohn called attitude one of the five major pieces of the life puzzle. A positive attitude will help you to overcome many problems when you add in persistence. I remember hearing Mike Hobbs’ story on the  Monday night call. Mike is one of those people with a great attitude. He conducted webinars for the Prosperity Team three times a week. As a military veteran, he has a military mind set, of do that needs to done, and he keeps going until he  gets it done. As one of the top money earners he does not have to do what he does but it just an indication of the type of people who raise to the top. Mission and purpose have meaning.

One politician  talked about one of his big supporters who came to him after he was elected and wanted him to do something he was against. He stuck to his principles and his supporter went away mad.  Months later when he went back home, he contacted his old supporter who told him that he was very upset at first because he could not believe he could do what he said; balance the budget without raising taxes.

We look at the top people and forget that even they started somewhere. Some people who started at the bottom, do the work and they  rise up. When they got there they realized that things needed to change for others to make it so they formed a network of like minded people. The basic concept is to empower others.

Some of the overnight success stories, are the results of years of struggle. Even Vick Stirizhus worked with Click Bank for a long time before he built his huge list that allowed him to set internet marketing records. If you want to enter the internet marketing world be willing to work, learn and to grow.

Mike Hobbs talked about all the mistakes he made getting started in the business. I was in the same situation and and I did some of the things he talked about. Some people started then they stopped, some said they would get started but they never did. You can only help people so much.

Les Brown said , look for the people who are hungry. Because they are looking for you. Nobody knows it all in the beginning. You got to learn your way around.  Once you sign in and put the time and the effort in, people will take notice. At the end of the word COMPRISE is a promise. The power of the universe will move in your favor when you take that leap of faith. The journey starts when you begin.  This has been straight talk, beast mode.

I'm a two time military veteran (Air Force & US Army). I started blogging to keep my mind active after 40+ years of work. I joined the Air Force to escape the auto assembly line in Detroit. I went to Libya North Africa where Col. Muammar Graddafi was forcing the closure of the base there. The base commander, Col. Daniel "Chappie" James kept a lid on the situation. I was later commissioned in the Army, and "Chappie" became the first African American Four Star General for the Air Force. Blogging just opened up the flood gates. Standing in the Shadows, Listening to the Greats!!! will be my blog novel. If you don't write your story who will?
