Home Based Business Success and the Power of Belief

By: Nick A. James

There was well over one million searches last month on the internet for home businesses. This means numerous people either aren't happy where they're at - they need more money or they want to be home raising their kids.

Think about it - people are either working so hard to pay the bills that they can't slow down and enjoy life or they struggle to pay the bills and thus their life is stress and endless worry. Look at all the home foreclosures each month - it's unbelievable.

However, while most people really want what a successful home business has to offer they usually aren't prepared to make that a reality.

Let's talk here about belief - all great accomplishments start with a seed of belief. But for that seed of belief to grow into a great accomplishment it needs a lot of water and nourishment - especially at first.

The key is to nourish that seed of belief so it grows - that seed of belief is very vulnerable at first - it can easily die as it has no roots.

Right after someone has started a home business is when it's most vulnerable. Your brother in law Butch will say - are you some kind of moron - those home business things don't work - my cousins Clem and Jethro didn't make a dime in the entire 2 hours they spent working. Of course who's to doubt a business giant like Butch - after all he just advanced to the rank of assistant night supervisor at the Quickmart after 7 short years.

Are you on fire? I heard a preacher once say - are you on fire? Or are you trying to put out someone else's fire.

If you're not on fire - I mean a raging fire what happens to a tiny flicker of flame - it easily goes out with the first wind.

However, a raging fire doesn't go out with the first wind - actually when the winds blow it just serves to make the fire grow even hotter. You can go away and that fire will continue to burn where you planted it.

Actually we are all one of the following three types of people, which one of these are you.

People that make things happen People that get on board with those who make things happen and People like Butch that wonder - what happened.

As a kid why did you never have trouble getting up on Christmas morning? Two reasons really - because you knew that something really good was going to happen to you. But two you had an unshakeable belief that there would be presents under the tree. Hence the great excitement and anticipation thus creating a great positive attitude.

The secret is extraordinary people are excited to get up everyday and so should we. By believing something great will happen each day we bring together unseen forces to help us. Plus this attitude attracts the right people to aid us in accomplishing great things.

Anybody can get excited over something good that's a sure deal - like Christmas. However, what separates the extraordinary from the ordinary are those who have the vision to see what others can't see in the future and take action.

There are two roads in life. One is a very broad and paved road and the amazing thing about this road is that you don't have to look for it or have directions to find it. By simply doing nothing it will find you and in 40 years or less on this giant freeway it will take you to the twin over-populated cities of Regret and Failure.

On the other hand there is another much harder to find road as it's simply a bare unmarked trail at the beginning and many people walk past it everyday without noticing. But once in a while to the weary, searching traveler it opens up a glimpse of the great vision it contains waiting at trails end.

The great thing about being on this second road is you meet other travelers who make traveling easier and considerably much more fun.

Everyone on this road sees something fascinatingly different " on down the road. " Walt Disney saw Disneyland and Epcot Center on this road. Orville and Wilbur Wright could see the future of air travel. Henry Ford could see a nation of automobiles. Our founding fathers could see a land of free men in a country that was the greatest land of freedom of opportunity the world had ever known.

So if you dare we invite you to take this path on the " Journey of No Regrets. " Where the hardest step is always the first.

Can a Conservative please explain the "Liberal Agenda" to me? I'm a liberal. I understand my own beliefs. But I would like to know what Conservatives believe is so wrong with the Liberal point of view. Points will be awarded to the person whose comments is the most eloquent, not whether I agree with you or not.
P.S. No links to other sites. I want to know what "you" think. Not what someone else would have you regurgitate.
Thanks everyone for the well thought out posts. After reading some of them, I have concluded that maybe I'm a moderate. Not a conservative because frankly, you people scare me. But that's besides the point.

The liberal agenda is to create a permanent socialist regime to seize and hold power permanently. The liberal regime will control every aspect of life for the serfdom it exploits.

The planks in the agenda are as follows;
Redistribution of wealth; using a confiscatory tax code to put as much private money in government hands as possible.

Control private business; using government regulation to intervene i.e. OSHA, EPA, the minimum wage, affirmative action, labor union complicity, etc.

Control education; use NEA and the allegiance of the national teachers unions to shape and enforce what our children and young adults are taught and deny tenure to anyone who departs from the agenda. Punish children who don't fall in line and think like they?re told to.

Break down the family unit; decry personal responsibility, castigate religious participation, encourage children out of wedlock and family dependence on government. See redistribution above.

Discourage personal achievement; Working hard, taking risks, making sacrifices and achieving goals leads to personal wealth. Personal wealth is bad because there are still poor people. Wealthy people are bad hence, hard work, sacrifice and success are all bad. Living paycheck to paycheck and relying on government to fill in the gaps is the only acceptable way to live and provide for your family.

Incapacitate and demoralize our military; a strong military leads to national sovereignty. America must be relegated to ?just another cog? in the wheel of the world community. Our government will decide for us, who shall lead us and what we?ll do for the world.

Disarm the public; government and it's police powers must be the only source of security. Government will determine whom will be protected and whom sacrificed.

Destroy American industry and ingenuity; the world?s ecology is the new apocalypse approaching and it?s all because of conservative, Caucasian, American males. We must give up our cars, our nice homes, our manufacturing capacity and all other modern conveniences to ?save the planet?.

In the end, only two classes will exist, the ruling class and serfdom.

Here's a response for "truth seeker" since he doesn't allow email, I'll tack this on to my answer from earlier.

good luck with a serious answer that doesn't come from the propaganda of Hannity, Limbaugh and Savage. I know it is difficult for them to think on their own so I will provide them with the Liberal agenda. Of course, they won't care , but I do.


...of conscience exemplified by free abortion for all, affirmative action (read sanctioned discrimination) and abolition of anything religious (moral). I?m sure you meant to say ?freedom FROM conscience.

You have the right to think as you wish.

...of religion

You have the right to worship as you please. The government has no business either supporting or opposing religion in general or any specific religion. Like the government opposing prayer in school, court, sporting events and public gatherings? Like opposing religious symbolism and celebration? Like removing ?in god we trust? from our money?
I?m sure you meant to say freedom FROM religion.

...of speech Ever heard of political correctness or ?hate crimes???? I?m sure you meant to say freedom of speech FOR LIBERALS.

You have the right to express your views, whatever they may be. Only in the free marketplace of ideas can truth emerge.
Civil rights
All people are equal under the law. Any type of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or gender is not only inconsistent with a free and civil society, but is immoral as well. Except as applied by liberals in government. i.e. the Congressional Black Caucus, Black History Month, National Organization of Women, affirmative action, decriminalizing illegal immigration, redefining marriage for gays, etc.
Universal public education
Equality of opportunity requires all Americans to have access to a basic education consistent with maintaining informed citizenship and the ability to participate fully in society. Especially since the NEA controls indoctrination criteria and compliance to it.
Tolerance of Differences
Because we are all unique beings, with different skills, needs, and wants, we must respect the life choices of others as long as their life choices do not infringe on the rights enjoyed by other citizens. Assimilation to the American way of life is thus discouraged and leaves social gaps to be exploited by liberals.
A Social Safety Net
Recognizing that circumstances beyond mortal control play a part in all our lives, a basic social safety net shall be avaliable to all who need it, not as a permanent lifestyle, but rather as a helping hand to get back on one's feet. 4 generations is not permanent and an extra $1000/month for each illegitimate child in a fatherless household is beyond mortal control.
Employees' Rights
We spend most of our lives working. Work is the foundation of our economy and a major part of the glue holding together communities. The employee is an equal business partner with the employer, and as such, has the right to collectively bargain for terms of employment. The employee is an equal partner because he has put up HIS money and HIS effort to build the employer?s company. The employee has as much at risk as the employer and without the employee, the employer could not exist!
Environmental Protection
Contrary to some people's opinions, it is possible to both protect the environment and sustain economic growth. We support taking all reasonable and responsible steps to protect the environment and the species contained therein. We have the power to prevent extinction which is what gives us justification for confiscating private property and hindering technological and social advancement.
Strong Families
The family is the primary social unit in America. It must be respected, and encouraged in all its forms. Government should make policy with this in mind. This is why you get money for illegitimate children until you choose a responsible father figure. At which time we take it all away. This is also why we want free abortion for all as an expression of how much we revere life and family.
With rights come responsibilities. Exercising our rights means taking responsibility for our actions, and their effects on others. For instance, if you shoot someone we will help to sue the manufacturer of the firearm you used. If you kill someone over your corner for drug distribution, we will show understanding for your circumstances and blame white republicans. If you get pregnant and don?t know who the father is, we?ll pay for your abortion. If you need the money for your child we?ll pay you every month to keep it.
Free Enterprise
The capitalist economic system is the most efficient solution to providing for peoples' wants and needs. Government's role is that of a regulator, not a controller of industry, and any regulation must only be for the good of society as a whole, and not for the benefit of any one entity. Regulation differs from control because they?re not spelled the same. Government must be allowed to ?regulate? private businesses because the government has done all the work, taken all the risks and suffered all the sacrifices to build your business for you. Besides, government knows so much more about how to run your business than you do, you should be grateful for the assistance and glad to pay for it.
Rule of Law
Law is the framework in which society operates. There can be no society without justice. Justice means that those who commit crimes must be made to answer for them, and that the criminal code is fair and wisely constructed. When criminal actions go unpunished, respect for the law weakens. The law applies to all, including all agents of the government.
...most importantly, Progress
Progress is what Liberalism really means; moral progress, economic progress, and social progress to benefit all humanity. This represents the path towards a better world. At its heart, Liberalism is an optimistic philosophy. That is, unless you?re an individualist and wish to be left alone to make your own decisions and take your own actions for your family. You?re not smart enough, you need our help.

If this is how you think for yourself, you left out a MAJOR plank in the liberal agenda; The right to overlook the facts to avoid confusion. You?ve even redefined Optimism to mean ?to blindly follow, as long as it FEELS right and sounds noble.?

is it bad being a lawyer? okay, i got this offer from local university to study law. i've always wanted to study law. but, the thing is, i used to be a science student. i realized it just not my thing, n i really wanted to be a lawyer. when my family know about the offer, the just shocked and seem disappointed. they said that lawyer is a risky job. you sometimes need to represent clients although you knew he's a bad guy. they said it just the same as being the bad guy. is it true? i mean, can't you just reject the case since you knew he's bad?

Listen to your family.

The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law:
**myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task - handling details is a large part of working as a lawyer),
**myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom),
**myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (Actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise. Many people mistakenly think that being an attorney is about the ability to argue. Actually, a successful attorney is defined by his/her commitment to the PEACEFUL resolution of disputes. Lawyers are actually: mediators, advocates, negotiators, advisors, evaluators, and peaceful intermediaries between clients.),
**myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong),
**myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week. There are a FEW attorneys that earn a lot of money - but MOST attorneys just about make a living. Most attorneys do not make as much money as most people think. Also, remember: there are more attorneys than there are available jobs.).
And then, to top it off, attorneys have to keep their client's information confidential. (You cannot use "juicy" tidbits that you have become aware of as fodder for the gossip circles.)

Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.

Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<<<<<<

**Check out these websites:

If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

Good luck.

(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)

homework help could you re right this? Since the European invasion until very recently government policy relating to Aboriginal people has been designed and implemented by non-Aboriginal people. The common justification for most policies for Aborigines was that they were "for their own good". There have been policies of protection, assimilation, self-determination and reconciliation. It is now clear that none of these policies have actually made the condition of Australia?s Indigenous people any better than it was prior to the invasion.
When the six Australian colonies became a Federation in 1901, white Australia believed that the Aborigines were a dying race and the Constitution made only two references to them. Section 127 excluded Aborigines from the census (although heads of cattle were counted) and Section 51 (Part 26) gave power over Aborigines to the States rather than to the Federal Government. This was the situation until the referendum of 1967 when an overwhelming majority of Australians voted to include Aborigines in the census of their own country.
In 1902, women in NSW were granted the right to vote, but this did not apply to Aboriginal women. And when compulsory voting was introduced in NSW in 1929, Aboriginal people were still excluded from voting under the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918. In 1962, the Federal Government gave Aborigines the optional right to vote. State laws, however, still classified "natives" as "wards of the state" and as such they were denied the right to vote in State elections.
In 1881, George Thornton MLC was appointed the first NSW Protector of Aborigines. Under the NSW Aborigines Protection Act 1909-1943, this position was abolished and replaced by the Aborigines Protection Board. This became the NSW Aborigines Welfare Board in 1943. The Board administered government policy, dictating where Aborigines could live and work, their freedom of movement, their personal finances and their child rearing practices.
The NSW Aborigines Welfare Board controlled Aboriginal lives until the 1960s, pursuing policies that are now acknowledged as having contributed to the destruction of Aboriginal families and society by separating children from their parents. These children became known as ?the stolen generations? and are still searching for their families. They now number between 15,000 and 20,000 in NSW alone. During the First World War, some four to five hundred Aboriginal people enlisted in the armed forces. During this time, the State government continued to remove Aboriginal children from their families, including youngsters whose fathers were serving overseas.
The NSW Aborigines Protection Act subsumed a number of previous Acts, including the 1867 law prohibiting alcohol being sold to Aborigines. It also provided for Aborigines of "mixed blood" to be issued with Certificates of Exemption, releasing them from the provisions of the Act and its regulations. These certificates, commonly known as "dog tags", came at a price as individuals were forced to relinquish family connections. They were not allowed to visit their own families and were gaoled if caught doing so. Many of those who travelled to Sydney needed an exemption certificate to allow them to work. When they wanted to return home for family business like funerals, they had to get written permission from the Manager of the station or mission to do so. The Welfare Board saw the increase in the number of certificates issued as proof of the success of its assimilation policy.
The Board?s policy was based on a belief that "protection" of Aborigines would lead to their "advancement" to the point where they would eventually fit into the white community. Protection and segregation policies were enforced until the1940s, when they were replaced with policies of assimilation and integration. Features of the administration of the Board included the implementation of the assimilation policy, and, from 1950/51, the movement of Aboriginal people to stations where they could be prepared for absorption into the general community.
The policy of assimilation meant individual families were persuaded to share the life in the towns with whites. Earlier government policies had relocated Aborigines from their homelands to reserves. The assimilation policy aimed at breaking up these reserves and "encouraging" people to give up seasonal and casual work, replacing this with regular work for wages (which remained unequal). The stations were considered as "stepping-stones to civilisation".
The Aborigines Welfare Board of NSW consisted of 11 members, with two positions designated for Aborigines, one "full-blood" and one having "a mixture of Aboriginal blood". The amendment to the Aborigines Protection Act in 1911 established Kinchela Boys Home and Cootamundra Girls Home for Aboriginal children removed from their families. In these homes, Aboriginal children were taught far
