8th year with SFI
Sometimes is so boring :/ in Miscellaneous
1 day ago
The key word in this is growth!
Do you not think that during the years of building this great business Mr Gery did not get bored? If not bored, he certainly became disheartened numerous times.
That process is known as growth.
You learn from what does not work and you take it one step at a time to find something that does work.
School children get bored with their lessons. Usually it is something they do not understand or do not find interesting. My twelve-year-old grandchildren are shining examples of this. The girl gets bored over one thing while the boy is bored over another. BUT! Give them something they are truly interested in and the joy comes back into their life. They cannot put it down before learning something new.
Adults are no different.
As numerous affiliates have suggested, it is a matter of setting goals and one of those goals is to learn something new each and every day you live on this earth. I make it a challenge to learn something new about SFI or renew information I have forgotten every day. I also do that in other areas of my life. There is no time for boredom in my life. There is too much to do, too much to learn and too much to share with others.
The process, again, is growth.
There are numerous affiliates who have been in much longer than I have and throughout the years no matter what adversities were thrown at Gery or them they hunkered down, put their shoulders to the plow and trudged forward.
They all kept on learning and growing.
We should be no different in our endeavors. My biggest challenge in building this business is my health issues and lack of computer skills. What do I do about it? I keep trudging and keep working on those skills.
I wish you the very best in your journey and hope you will look for the positives and not the negatives. Fly with the Eagles and not with the Chickens my friend. You will be grateful you did.

Yes, it is sad when you mother dies. However, Dr. Ben's mother was such a wonderful example for her two sons I am sure they treasure every moment they shared with her while she was with them.

I agree with the others who have replied. I have my own order of operations. Also, depending upon how close to the new hour it is I often go play T-Time first. Then later as I am finishing for the time period I go back and replay T-Time if I did not win already that day.

A Living Example
Dr Ben Carson shared this today on Facebook.
I feel it is such an awesome tribute to his mother, the life and example she lived and as a success guide for her sons to follow that we all should read it.
Today, November 6, 2017 we lost my dear mother, Sonya Carson. Although she came from an impoverished background with very little formal education, she somehow understood how success was achieved in our society. If anyone had a reason to make excuses, it was her, but she absolutely refused to be a victim and would not permit us to develop the victim mentality either. Whenever we made an excuse, she quoted the poem "Yourself to Blame." The poem is included in this post. May she rest in peace.
Yourself to Blame by Mayme White Miller
“If things go bad for you
And make you a bit ashamed
Often you will find out that
You have yourself to blame
Swiftly we ran to mischief
And then the bad luck came
Why do we fault others?
We have ourselves to blame
Whatever happens to us,
Here is what we say
"Had it not been for so-and-so
Things wouldn't have gone that way."
And if you are short of friends,
I'll tell you what to do
Make an examination,
You'll find the faults in you...
You are the captain of your ship,
So agree with the same
If you travel downward
You have yourself to blame”
Hope you are have a great week so far.
A day spent working our business is a day of progress.
My best to you always
May God bless
How can the disabled join SFI in Miscellaneous

Anyone can be successful. Please as others have said never use the word dumb. No one is dumb it is simply a matter of not being educated to a certain topic.
I for one am physically impaired. I cannot get out and go do things like the localvantia as others can. I have a problem with my eyes and have to enlarge the font a lot to be able to read. I am certainly no computer whiz.
However, my daughter assists me with these problems when my health issues are causing issues.
I would suggest that anyone who has health issues of any type but still wants to build a successful business find someone in their family or a close friend to help them.
I watched a NCIS show the other night wherein a big time computer hacker was a blind person. There are ways and means with the technology available to day that people with disabilities can and do build successful businesses and lives.

Wise words Martina! Well said! The thing you will learn is the learning never stops. There is always something new to be read, study, and practiced or rereading, restudying, and trying new practices. I wish you well on your new journey.
