Imagine Your Worse Case Scenario- “What Motivates You?”


At the seven minute mark of the Youtube video, “Faithful Over Few (Eric Thomas Motivation)”, Eric Thomas tells his audience to have dreams, but to have a couple of nightmares to go along with those dreams. He advises them to imagine their worse case scenario of what could happen to them so it won’t be a surprise to them and lead them to get blindsided. That’s just in case they run into roadblocks, negativity, denials, and failures.



I was so motivated and enlightened by the video that I had to go back, listen, and mention certain key parts that I think could be of relevance to us all. In the beginning of the video Eric talks about “Honor.” He went to the provost of Michigan State University where he was employed at the time to ask permission to leave the university and was denied. Because he had respect and appreciation for the opportunity that was afforded him,  by the provost, no matter how miserable he was, he “Honored” his commitment to continue working at the university, and to come back in 365 days with his request, ask instructed. After 365 days he went back to the provost to ask permission to leave the university and his request was granted.

I believe we all should honor where we are now and thank God for the blessings that we do have and remain steadfast and dedicated to our present situations until other doors open. Show respect and appreciation to the person who gave you your opportunity. Keep in mind that your boss may have had to hire somebody, but it didn’t have to be you.


At the 1:20 mark of the video he gave a testimony of what happens when we hold ourselves accountable to do the right things in the mist of storms. Eric talked about finally being able to leave the university and how one of his videos blew up after about a two week period. His testimony showed “What Comes Around, Goes Around”, (the process of reciprocity). We have to learn to dedicate ourselves to the task at hand to prove to God that we are worthy of moving forward and accomplishing bigger and better things. We too will be able to leap for joy when we see the evidence of our hard work and dedication paying off. What we do to, or for others will come back to us one-hundred fold.


Around the 1:30 mark of the video he spoke about “Dedication.” He told a story about a particular guru who was asked, “How to Become Successful”, and the guru gave the following advice to the person asking the question: “When You Want To Succeed As Bad As You Want To Breath, Then You’ll Be Successful.” This is a good reason for us to think about our worse case scenario. And if you can’t think of a worse case scenario for yourself, then ride the streets of a city with homeless people and imagine to yourself that one of them could be you. If you have dreams, goals and visions that you haven’t accomplished yet, then think about this: “When You Want To Succeed As Bad As You Want To Breath, Then You’ll Be Successful.” Dedicate yourself for at least 40 straight days to whatever it is that you’re doing, and you will see the benefits.


At around the 2:40 mark he talked about a dark part of his life and how he got through it. He said the song by Fergie, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” got him through his darkness because he listened to the song every day. I think we all “Should Keep A Song In Our Hearts.” Regardless of your music of choice, music has proven to be a scapegoat for many. Some people may want to criticize or judge you for your style of music without even realizing that your ability to listen to any song could be the difference in you losing your mind. So I advise you to always “Sing A Song” and keep it stored  in your heart for those dark times in life.



He summed up his entire video starting at the 3:50 mark by talking about Matthew 25:23 nlt. He said God told him that He had seen him continuing to “Be Faithful Over A Few Things”, and that He was giving the world over to him at that point because of his faithfulness. Check this out and check it out closely; Eric Thomas will have to some day very soon, move over and make room for me and you, because we to are faithful over a few things and about to get the keys to the kingdom (Matthew 16:19 nlt) as well.

No matter what happens along this journey, remember to always have “Honor” for the task at hand, because “What Comes Around, Goes Around.” Stay “Dedicated” to your cause and don’t let the storms of life get you into those dark places where you can’t see the light. Always keep the music playing in you heart to that song of choice. Lastly, always remember when you “Be Faithful Over A Few Things”, you too will get the keys to the kingdom.






Online Basics- How To Send Bulk Personalized Emails Using Gmail


I have accomplished yet another possible two year feat, “How To Send Bulk Personalized Emails” using my gmail account. Another piece of the puzzle put together. For at least two years now after receiving countless marketing emails with personal greetings such as, “Hello Larry”, and me sending bulk emails where each recipient can see each others email address, made me want to learn the more up-to-date method. First let me share why using personalized emails will enhance your email open rate in the article: “The Power Of Personalised Emails: Four Ways Your Customer Will Respond”, by Maggie Kelly.


Change has occurred since the days of receiving an email with the email address and name of every person that the email was sent to. I still have tons of emails with this information that I’ll figure out how to implement into my marketing without spamming. Why not? They were free. Hint!!! Hint!!! When I receive emails today I know for sure that many many other people have received the exact same email, but I have no idea who these people are because these emails are sent out in bulk as personalized emails. I can’t and won’t be able to see any of these people’s personal information nor will they be able to see mine. But we’ll all get that email and any other future emails that’ll be in that particular email campaign. An email campaign is a coordinated set of individual email messages that are deployed across a specific period of time with one specific purpose, such as download a white paper, sign up for a webinar, or make a purchase with a provided coupon. Each email requires a well-written subject line, focused content, and a specific call to action to achieve the campaign’s goal. Email campaigns are often sent through email service providers, such as AIOP All In One Profits.



As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been wanting to accomplish the feat of learning how to send bulk emails for at least two years now and maybe three. Now, because of the advancement of the computer along with the acquired knowledge of skilled writers who know how to put the information together so even a beginner will be able to follow along, has afforded me the opportunity to finally say, “I now know how to send bulk personalized emails.” I am going to save you much needed time by giving you the link to a step-by-step method that you can follow to accomplish this same feat in a fraction of the time that it took me. “How to Send A Mail Merge in Gmail Using Yet Another Mail Merge”, is all you’ll need wrapped up in one video. When you get your personalized bulk email system set, be sure to add me to the list. To your success.








WordPress For Beginners- I’m Studying & Learning To Improve My Site

I am really not a WordPress Beginner because I’ve had my site for at least a year. But the problem is, my site has all of the trademarks of a WordPress Beginner. That’s really not a major problem because your site doesn’t have to be perfect before you start writing & publishing. A few of my reasons for really wanting to improve my site is because I upgraded to the Business Plan for maximum benefits. I want to learn by trial and error so I can be in a position to direct other people in the right direction to save them time and effort. I want my site to be marketable to the whole wide world because I plan on having content that’ll be of use to as many people as possible.

On yesterday I started my research on “How To Send Bulk Personal Emails”? While researching I found out through a few sources that you have to create a spreadsheet in order to send personal emails in bulk, so I followed a few steps from the article written by: Michael Grubbs of, “Google Sheets 101: The Beginners Guide To Online Spreadsheets.” This comment is in no way meant to discourage anyone from learning this process, but, I didn’t get it the first day. I don’t remember where I ran into a road block, but it is just that, a road block. I’m going to clear the road and get this thing figured out.

You’ll know you’re on the right path when you get what I call a confirmation. I was going through my emails when I came across an article: “I Pretend To Be An #InstaBlogger And Increased My Like Average By 94%”, from a blogger (Lucero Cantu) that I follow. This blogger had some very key personal advice that I found to be very helpful for my own personal use. But the advice on increasing “Likes” and “Follows”, was top notch. This is a blogger who has my attention because I know we have the same heart’s intents; sharing what we learn and know with everybody and what we think may be helpful to others without any reservations what so ever. We are better together. But anyway, this blogger had created two graphs using Google Spreadsheets. I was researching a different spreadsheet yesterday but was impressed when I clicked on the graphs and they had the information listed on the unpublished spreadsheet just as the instructions were given by Google Sheets 101. Lucero Cantu really know her stuff and I look forward to learning more from her through future reads.


Online Basics- Introduction To Computers

Many people have no clue about the many opportunities afforded them just by having access to a computer with internet access. Not only that, many of these people are terrified for various reasons of this little electronic device. My goals are to help as many people as possible rid themselves of their fear of computers and show them several of it’s benefits and why they should highly consider becoming a part of the internet family. I am overly concerned about this matter and hope that you are too.

As I researched the matter of why people don’t use computers I was overwhelmed to discover how many other people have my concerns at heart as well. In this article, “Many People Can’t Use Computers And Why It Should Bother You”, written by: David Echols, you’ll see how David has had personal and up close experiences with people who don’t use computers or why they can’t use them. There may be parts of David’s blog that can help you as well being that he’s a Software Engineer and in no way fearful of computers.

In this article, “Why Do Some People Not Understand How To Use A Computer”, written by: Nat Ng, Nat breaks down some of the reasons for people’s fear of the computer and why different age groups respond differently in reference to the use of and benefits of the computer. Nat even discuss the history and evolution of some electronic devices.

Regardless of the many reasons why or why not may be the reasons why people don’t use computers, the fact of the matter is, many don’t. It’s our responsibility to educate people to the many benefits of using a computer and rid them of their fear of the unknown. Opening the door to new opportunities and experiences for people will help make this world a better place to be and build the confidence level over the charts for many people around the world.
