OVERCOMING FAILURE AND REJECTION PART ONE

January 24, 2014 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

OVERCOMING FAILURE AND REJECTION OF OTHERS

In this message, I want to talk about dealing with two of the most destructive obstacles to success.  The Fear of Failure and the negativity of others. Without the resolve and faith to go on, in spite of the opinions of those around you and the setbacks that are a natural part of accomplishment, success is not possible.  The single most important factor separating those who achieve great things and those who don’t, is their perception of… and reaction tofailure and negativity…   http://wp.me/p2EGlL-2JS

Without the willingness to risk failure, nothing happens… Without it, Success is simply IMPOSSIBLE!.   If you aren’t failing, you’re not really trying.  And if you’re not failing enough… you aren’t trying hard enough.

Success-   The four letter word.

 This is Bruce Castro, founder of the solutions network.  Over the next few minutes, I want to share with you some of the things that I’ve learned over the years.  Most of them, I learned because of mistakes I made, mistakes that cost me dearly.  If I had understood these principles earlier in my life, it would have prevented a lot of heartache, eliminated many setbacks and most importantly I would have been able to provide more for my family and do it sooner.  To listen to this important message, please see below

Success is a Choice

January 1, 2014 in Success & Family

YOU CAN DO IT!
The first thing that most people need to understand is that success is not an accident… It is a choice! So many people look around at their doctor, their realtor, their lawyer, the Restaurant Owner and think “look at the lucky SOB, he’s got everything”.  But remember,
with few exceptions, we begin at the same starting line.  Getting ahead, doesn’t just happen.  They weren’t just lucky. They were committed and prepared! They acted.  See also Universal principles of success

Are We on the Way to a Dictatorship?

December 31, 2013 in Economics 101, Politics, Uncategorized

ARE WE ON THE WAY TO A DICTATORSHIP?
It is a Fact. (see below), We now have a series of executive orders that would allow Obama… (or any future president), to take away our most cherished constitutional freedoms and turn this great society into a dictatorship… all at the stoke of a pen.  Obama didn’t sign them all.  But when combined with his proven willingness to side step the US constitution and rule of law, it becomes a terrifying prospect for anyone who cherishes the freedoms that this country once guaranteed.  

The signed executive orders and numbers are below. You don’t have to believe me. But, if you don’t, please look them up for yourself. Each of us… republicans, democrats, independents, etc… need to open our eyes to the fact that the freedoms we all hold so dear, are now but a pen stroke away, from oblivion.
We are at a crossroads!  The only thing that can save this country from coming ruin is by informing the uninformed.  Please share and tell others to share this vital information.

Success Principle #1 Control Your Focus!

December 2, 2013 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

THE POWER OF FOCUS.
Obstacles are those things you see when you take your eyes off the goal”.  Cavitt Robert.
If you are not where you want to be… You Can Change It…   Everyone—everyday can find a reason NOT to do the things they OUGHT to do in order to accomplish the things they WANT to do.  Nothing is easier than making excuses.
Understand.  No matter how bad it seems… no matter how bad it actually is.  As long as you don’t lose faith in yourself… as long as you focus on what you want to accomplish rather than simply cursing the obstacles in your path, you can overcome and accomplish virtually anything.  With FOCUS and PERSISTENCE you can not only SURVIVE… you can THRIVE!  I did.

Following is the God’s honest truth of the impossible circumstances, obstacles and failures I overcame to create ASN (The Solutions Network).  It contains absolutely, NO, embellishments.  I fourished, not due to the brilliance of an idea, but rather the commitment to a principle; a principle that anyone can use.  No matter your circumstances… you can overcome and you can thrive!  Read the rest of this entry →

Success Principles

September 9, 2012 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

SUCCESS PRINCIPLES
Want Success?    Be Willing to Act,   Be Prepared to Fail and Unwilling to Blame!
Success entails action, temporary failure and the acceptance of responsibility i.e. No Excuses!
Without the capacity to fail and get back up, the ability to succeed simply doesn’t exist!
When you DO fail… When you do have that set back… Don’t Make Excuses! Don’t Blame. LEARN. Blaming is nothing but a waste of time. Get back up, analyze what happened, learn from it and do it again… but this time, do it better.  Read the rest of this entry →

How to Succeed? Fail Often!

September 8, 2012 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

Want Success? Want a Better Life?  
Stop Thinking About it… Stop Talking About it…  START DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
The life you want is within your grasp… But you have to get off the couch.  Do Something!  Success and achievement requires more than a great idea. It requires action, consistent action. Most of us have a thousand excuses that allow us to comfortably sit on the couch, in front of the computer, day after day, planning, thinking and talking about all the great things we can and will do “someday”.

  • It’s not what you know…
  • It’s not what you think…
  • It’s not what you plan…
  • It’s not how great your potential is…
  • It’s not how brilliant you are…
  • The only thing that really matters is what you actually do!…  Read the rest of this entry →

I See the Future… and it looks like Greece.

September 7, 2012 in Economics 101, Politics, Uncategorized

A LOOK INTO OUR FUTURE- GREECE?
If our government doesn’t get spending under control, this country will fail.  Many of our politicians are burying their heads in the sand, but they all know the US is heading over a financial cliff.  If we don’t make a change, the country we hand over to our children and grandchildren will be but a shadow of what our parents gave us. Proving this fact requires about 5 minutes of objective thought. All we have to do is look at Greece. Where they are, is inexorably where we are headed. We have to change direction, NOW.

All the Great Speeches of Historywill not cure us. Like heroin, they make us feel good for a while, the next day, all the problems remain, but now we also deal with withdrawal!
Only Real Solutions Solve Real Problems Much like a bitter medicine. It’s unappealing, it tastes bad, we don’t want to take it… but if we do, we get better, if we don’t, we get worse, maybe even die!  It’s time to take our medicine!

Are Science and Religion at Odds? How Science Created a Christian.

September 6, 2012 in Religion, Uncategorized

The world is being indoctrinated against religion.
Universally agreed upon facts are being ignored and hidden within our educational system. Even if a fact is indisputable, if it has theological implication it will never be mentioned in any classroom. (details below).   I’ve come to realize that In my education, countless relevant facts with obvious world view implications were never mentioned… the result?   I bought the half truths and became an atheist.
The complete facts are being kept from your children right now.  Will they withstand the barrage any better than I did?

I’m against indoctrination of any kind… whether for or against religion.  But, facts should be revealed and truth be told, in its entirety. Unfortunately, neither our schools, colleges nor government has any inclination to so.  Religion is under attack and the best defense is truth.  If the facts are ever going to get out, It’s up to us.  Please, share this information with every open minded person you know… and ask them do the same.  Also, download this free ebook. It provides comprehensive facts on both sides of this issue and does so in a manner makes it easy to combat the misinformation, with which our children are indoctrinated. Click Here

The Truth About Religion

May 18, 2012 in Religion

WHAT IS THE TRUTH ABOUT RELIGION?
The truth is that the existence or non existence of God can’t be proven either way.  No one can prove that God exists and no one can prove that God does not exist.  All anyone can ever do, is weigh the evidence.  But why are some of the most brilliant atheistic minds in the world, biologists, chemists, astronomers, doctors turning from atheism to Religion?  The reason is simple.  They have kept informed of new discoveries and information.  They have then analyzed, objectively and with an open mind, weighed this new evidence that did not exist when the paradigm of darwinistic materialism was being formulated.  They saw new facts and new information that required new conclusions.   That is how science and discovery is supposed to work, but often does not .  The available information has changed and “evolved” dramatically.  The more we’ve learned, the more compelling the case “for” religion has become.  At the same time, the case “against” has become much more difficult to even TRY to make…   Read the rest of this entry →

Is Government the Answer?

May 18, 2012 in Economics 101, Politics

Is Government the Answer?
For many things yes, government is the answer.  It provides for the common good, protects us from our enemies, even from our fellow citizens.  Helps provide order; prevent chaos, a safety net for the poor, for those that are unable to fend for themselves.  It does a great many things that can reasonably be accomplished in no other way.  But does it try to do too much? and in  doing so, does it crowd out the innovation of the private sector?  In trying to do more, does it insure that we get and keep less?

There is little question but that the government and our leaders generally try to do the right thing… But remember, there is nothing that government ever does or gives that did not take from someone else.   By the defnition, the more the government does with one hand, the more it must take with the other. Our government takes from our left pocket puts part of it in our right pocket and we feel grateful… Read the rest of this entry →

An Serious and Honest Question… If God Exists, Would You Want to Know?

May 18, 2012 in Religion

If God actually exists… would you want to know?      
If God exists, would it matter?  To your friends? Your family?… Would they want to know?
If what you were taught and what your children are being taught about the origins of life, the fossil record  that is constantly touted to “prove the fact” of evolution; if those “facts” were wrong, provably wrong… and not just according to Christians, but according to renowned Biologists, Paleontologists, Astronomers, Chemists, Physicists, etc… would you want to know?
If the things you were taught that “proved” that there is no God, can be no God, that God never existed and was never anything more than a fairy tale made up by an ill-informed ignorant society, were wrong… would you want to know?
If all the “facts” that convinced you and others that this incredible universe, our lives, our thoughts, our emotions, the love we feel for our family, friends and children; that everything about us can be reduced to a series of random chance events, a mere accident… if these facts were wrong Would you want to know?

Don’t we all want the truth?  The Truth is… Society has been sold a bill of goods.  The evidence that will be presented below is causing many of our most brilliant scientists, biologists, chemists, astronomers, physicists, etc… to find religion.

Are Drug Companies and the FDA KILLING Us?

May 17, 2012 in Health, Politics

Is someone you know or love, dying… because the FDA won’t let them have the CURE???
The answer is probably yes!
The FDA and Big Pharma are Killing Us!
It’s happening!  See from Forbes Magazine…
Approve a medication that has an unintended side effect and congressional headline-seekers will be giving officials the third degree. Better to let people die by depriving them of new medicines than to be excoriated by congress.

* Should Americans die because FDA officials don’t want to be embarrassed?
* Should people die because the FDA has made it so expensive to get FDA approval, that if a cure is not guaranteed to make BILLIONS, it will never make it to market?  No matter the benefit, because of the FDA, we can’t have it!  Does this make any sense?

The Problem with WorldViews… How Materialism Died

September 20, 2015 in Religion

How Worldviews KILL Scientific and Intellectual Progress-
…How Materialism Died… and no one knew

Related- Is atheism the Opiate of the Uninformed?
With certainty on a particular subject comes a tendency to dismiss new views without taking even a moment of thought to determine if it has merit.  Why would anyone waste their time if they KNOW it can’t be true?   If an idea is in contravention to our own committed worldview we often toss it without a thought. This is often true even though the evidence supporting the new idea is overwhelming…  you might do it even if you happen to be brilliant!  How often has your worldview caused you to not consider the possibility of a concept because you KNOW it’s not true.  Many unwittingly discard truth and hold to incorrect beliefs due to their absolute certainty. When faced with new information we should always take a moment to loosen our worldviews and objectively examine it.  Otherwise, at some point, we will make the same mistakes that Einstein and hundreds of our most brilliant scientists have made...  If you don’t want your worldview challenged, do not read this!  An open mind is the key to an informed mind…   Read the rest of this entry →

Why ATHEISM The Opiate of the Uninformed

September 20, 2015 in Religion

Do you think the knowledge of science has progressed to the degree that it proves God does not exist?… If so, you should think again! http://allsolutionsnetwork.org/blog/what-if-the-facts-are-wrong-facts-that-destroyed-faith

Religion has been touted as the OPIATE OF THE MASSES because it dulled their life’s pain with delusory promises of a beautiful existence in heaven.  Therefore, there was supposedly less need to struggle for a better existence in this life because their reward would be in the next. In short, religion made them feel better about their lives.

Rules for Radicals Saul Alinsky

February 23, 2015 in Politics, Uncategorized

Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and Obama Philosophy.

Rules for Radicals (on which Obama actually taught a college course), was the inspiration for Cloward-Piven’s theory for societal change that was fundamentally to overburden existing government so that you can then properly rebuild it…  
DESTROY CAPITALISM

In a nutshell, the underlying principle of the Cloward-Piven Strategy is to so overload the entitlement system – to add so many to the entitlement rolls, that the country’s economic system collapses, unleashing chaos and violence in the streets, thus affecting radical Leftist political change in government.   We have been seeing the real world results of this theory in action in Greece and other parts of Europe.  see… http://allsolutionsnetwork.org/blog/the-late-great-united-states

The Origin of Life… WHO WROTE THE MANUAL?

October 8, 2014 in Religion, Uncategorized

Are we simply an accident of dirt, chance and time?  Did the DNA manual write itself?  If not, who wrote it?
HOW WAS THE FIRST LIVING CELL CREATED?   

  • Was the first living cell really created from of a random combination of chemicals floating in an ancient primordial soup?
  • Or was it the purposeful creation of an immense intelligence?  Whether it was God or aliens, these are really the only plausible options.   The fact is that scores of our most brilliant scientists; (Francis Crick, Richard Dawkins, Frederick Hoyle, to name but a few), believe in the latter.  Why? because of the impossibly improbable odds of it being the result of random chance and we see no reasonable naturalistic chemical pathway for creating life from inanimate matter.  Other than intelligence, all we really have is a morass of conjecture and wishful thinking. 

Even if one believes that the first living cell, with its accompanying, mind numbing complexity was created by a fantastically improbable chance combination of random chemicals, dirt and water (see short videos below), ; does that really explain anything?  Does it really make sense?  When this impossibly unlikely first miracle of a living cell died, as all cells do… That would be the end of life!  There would be nothing to even begin any type of “evolutionary” process from which all life forms supposedly evolved, unless, in addition to it’s own life “accidentally” arising,  it also carried within itself the DNA coding to replicate itself.
