Ten Affirmations

Say it, believe it, live it. That’s the power of affirmations. Affirmations shape the mindset. Try it, create ten affirmations, repeat them. How do you feel? Repeat them again. And again. And again. And again. Reprogram the negative programming that’s been dumped on you by family, friends, peers, employers, institutions, media, entertainment, external sources. Create your own programming with affirmations. I AM rich. I AM powerful. I AM free. I AM lean. I AM healthy. […]

Is Success A BIG Meat Sandwich?

What do I lack? I have books. And devices. Clothes to wear. There’s money in my wallet. I have a car, work to do, and the day is a delightful challenge. My new approach to starting gigs starts with recordkeeping. The next time I visit the supermarket holds the potential for victory. I’ve realized that cravings can be snuffed with non damaging alternatives. I can work during every moment of the day, or not. My […]

Harvard Square on a Kick Scooter

It’s a nice night. Just under seventy degrees, but I’m wearing a jacket. It’s stylised (auto correct) to go down into the lower fifties later. East Watertown to Harvard Square is about three miles away. It took maybe thirty minutes to get here on a kick scooter. I wake up in the middle of the night. Usually after sleeping about five hours. The big question on my mind last night was what do I like? […]

Rainy Sunday Morning

The day before Labor Day is Sunday and it’s a rainy morning. Do you ever wake up and say what am I going to do today? I get up early enough to ask that question every day. I answer the question by doing a daily review of my projects, calendar, tasklist and what’s on my mind. It’s a ritual to open the apps on an android as I have my black coffee and figure out […]

Podcasting and Audio

What is the Red Pill? The Red Pill is a philosophy. It was an odd path that led to my discovery of the Red Pill. The day started with an urge to understand and implement audio to write and create content. In the span of a day I’ve switched over to dictation, embraced podcasting and made my phone a more powerful tool. After installing podbean from google play I set up a playlist, and listened […]

TPA – Structural Dynamics

Robert Fritz’s book The Path of Least Resistance introduced me to his Structural Dynamics achievement methodology that identifies oscillating and advancing patterns. He wrote a whole book, several books, revealing a planning process for achieving desires. For me, Structural Dynamics picks up where the Law of Attraction trails off. I’ve broken it down to three components: TPA. Target. Position. Action. The Target is the vision, the result, what you want to achieve. The Position is […]

Ten Gigs

I registered the domain name MJCollinsCo.com yesterday. Today I setup a blog and did some updates here on this blog. I’m currently running two gigs. A gig is a small shoestring business capable of producing immediate income with little or no investment. Russell Brunson has me all fired up on blogging as a vehicle to find my voice. The first couple of gigs need to generate immediate income. Not a lot but enough to cover […]

Manpod Welcome

What Happens in The Manpod gets Blasted to The Web The better part of the day went into setting up MJCollinsCo.com –my business blog. Having recently quit a job selling cars leaves me scrambling to secure sufficient sources of income. All of that discussion is being moved off to the business side of my life. The Manpod is a simple abode that’s shifted three times in less than three years. I recently returned from a […]

SiteOrigin Editor

The home page displays two columns. I was thinking about how I want my blog to look. I’ve used the Site Origin editor on other blogs. Without it something as simple as putting two images side by side can be a challenge. This all went down at 2am. It’s now almost 10am. I finally fell back asleep after getting the page layout tool working. I’m calling it an editor. I then updated my home page. […]

Cleaned Out Gmail

I had labels/folders in gmail for mailing lists, and my gmail was setup like a filing cabinet. That’s no more. I deleted all my filters and labels except one, “ACTION.” There’s no reason to look up account details in gmail. I’m going to file to Drive, or some other cloud service and stop using my email like a file cabinet. Gmail Is A Mailbox, Not A Filing Cabinet I used gmail’s default labels and searched […]
