To My Dear Friend Rich – God Needs Her More


Dear Rich

To My dear friend Rich what can I say
To make you feel better even in just a small way

I cannot hold you to comfort you as I am too far away
But my heart grieves for our loss, a very sad day

Kristi was special Rich, her passing a shock
I know she is everything to you, you to her, her to you, a rock

We don’t hug, touch, greet and see each other enough when we could
Our friends that are special, we think they will be with us forever, as they should

I can’t imagine the pain, disbelief, emptiness you are all feeling at this time
But I know she would not want you to grieve too long, she knows life has too many mountains to climb

I know Rich your heart is broke, you will miss her, your pain to the core
But you and I know that it is her time and God needs her more


Kristi – You Will Never Be Forgot

To Kristi my friend where ever you are
Right now close by, I am sure not to far

We have only known each other but a few years
Your passing has been a shock we all have shed many a tear

My memory of you will always know you to have good humor and bright
Strong convictions and stand up for what is right

Some laughs a few jell-O shots we have shared
Maybe a few to many glasses of red wine, not counting and who cares

Kristi I bid you farewell and you will be missed by us all a lot
But rest assured my friend, you will never be forgot

Poem Friday On Thursday – Happy Birthday Rich

Happy Birthday Rich
Author – Lesley Voth

What can I say about my friend who is a ‘Rock Star’
We have together had many a beer at many, many a bar

I love and cherish his friendship, would trust him with my life
Loyal and faithful to his friends and especially his lovely wife

We have been on many long rides together on our motorbikes
Smoked a cigar, whisky or two, got to know some of his dislikes

His long hair, like very long hair, is his pride and joy
Longer than most men in the shower, conditioning, to protect not destroy

Yep our boy he is a bit of a flirt, but the entertainment we totally enjoy
The girls love him, they give him that come hither smile, smooth our charismatic playboy

He has no love for water, you can be sure you will never see him in a pool
Doesn’t like to be splashed, will enjoy watching with beer in hand on a bar stool

He goes to the gym and has muscles like Popeye who ate all his spinach
Speaks fluent spanish, good-looking Dad, appears to come from a strong lineage.

We know you are bike less at the moment and that is a bitch
But you are very special to us and we love you.
Happy Birthday Rich

Think Rich Daily Its Good For The Soul

These are great words and ones we need to remind ourselves daily. There is so much negativity in our faces every day whether its the movies, tv, media, new etc etc and we are inclined to forget to verbalize the positives.

Good for Mandi who ever she is, to give us a list of positives even if they are from the book written by someone else,Steve Siebold “How Rich People Think”

21 Ways Rich People Think Differently

By Mandi Woodruff

Steve Siebold, author of “How Rich People Think,” spent nearly three decades interviewing millionaires around the world to find out what separates them from everyone else.

It had little to do with money itself, he told Business Insider. It was about their mentality.

“[The middle class] tells people to be happy with what they have,” he said. “And on the whole, most people are steeped in fear when it comes to money.”

1. Average people think MONEY is the root of all evil. Rich people believe POVERTY is the root of all evil.

“The average person has been brainwashed to believe rich people are lucky or dishonest,” Siebold writes.

That’s why there’s a certain shame that comes along with “getting rich” in lower-income communities.

“The world class knows that while having money doesn’t guarantee happiness, it does make your life easier and more enjoyable.”

2. Average people think selfishness is a vice. Rich people think selfishness is a virtue.

“The rich go out there and try to make themselves happy. They don’t try to pretend to save the world,” Siebold told Business Insider.

The problem is that middle class people see that as a negative—and it’s keeping them poor, he writes.

“If you’re not taking care of you, you’re not in a position to help anyone else. You can’t give what you don’t have.”

3. Average people have a lottery mentality. Rich people have an action mentality.

“While the masses are waiting to pick the right numbers and praying for prosperity, the great ones are solving problems,” Siebold writes.

“The hero [middle class people] are waiting for may be God, government, their boss or their spouse. It’s the average person’s level of thinking that breeds this approach to life and living while the clock keeps ticking away.”

4. Average people think the road to riches is paved with formal education. Rich people believe in acquiring specific knowledge.

“Many world-class performers have little formal education, and have amassed their wealth through the acquisition and subsequent sale of specific knowledge,” he writes.

“Meanwhile, the masses are convinced that master’s degrees and doctorates are the way to wealth, mostly because they are trapped in the linear line of thought that holds them back from higher levels of consciousness…The wealthy aren’t interested in the means, only the end.”

5. Average people long for the good old days. Rich people dream of the future.

“Self-made millionaires get rich because they’re willing to bet on themselves and project their dreams, goals and ideas into an unknown future,” Siebold writes.

“People who believe their best days are behind them rarely get rich, and often struggle with unhappiness and depression.”

6. Average people see money through the eyes of emotion. Rich people think about money logically.

“An ordinarily smart, well-educated and otherwise successful person can be instantly transformed into a fear-based, scarcity driven thinker whose greatest financial aspiration is to retire comfortably,” he writes.

“The world class sees money for what it is and what it’s not, through the eyes of logic. The great ones know money is a critical tool that presents options and opportunities.”

7. Average people earn money doing things they don’t love. Rich people follow their passion.

“To the average person, it looks like the rich are working all the time,” Siebold says. “But one of the smartest strategies of the world-class is doing what they love and finding a way to get paid for it.”

On the other hand, middle class take jobs they don’t enjoy “because they need the money and they’ve been trained in school and conditioned by society to live in a linear thinking world that equates earning money with physical or mental effort.”

8. Average people set low expectations so they’re never disappointed. Rich people are up for the challenge.

“Psychologists and other mental health experts often advise people to set low expectations for their life to ensure they are not disappointed,” Siebold writes.

“No one would ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations.”

9. Average people believe you have to DO something to get rich. Rich people believe you have to BE something to get rich.

“That’s why people like Donald Trump go from millionaire to nine billion dollars in debt and come back richer than ever,” he writes.

“While the masses are fixated on the doing and the immediate results of their actions, the great ones are learning and growing from every experience, whether it’s a success or a failure, knowing their true reward is becoming a human success machine that eventually produces outstanding results.”

10. Average people believe you need money to make money. Rich people use other people’s money.

Linear thought might tell people to make money in order to earn more, but Siebold says the rich aren’t afraid to fund their future from other people’s pockets.

“Rich people know not being solvent enough to personally afford something is not relevant. The real question is, ‘Is this worth buying, investing in, or pursuing?’” he writes.

11. Average people believe the markets are driven by logic and strategy. Rich people know they’re driven by emotion and greed.

Investing successfully in the stock market isn’t just about a fancy math formula.

“The rich know that the primary emotions that drive financial markets are fear and greed, and they factor this into all trades and trends they observe,” Siebold writes.

“This knowledge of human nature and its overlapping impact on trading give them strategic advantage in building greater wealth through leverage.”

12. Average people live beyond their means. Rich people live below theirs.

“Here’s how to live below your means and tap into the secret wealthy people have used for centuries: Get rich so you can afford to,” he writes.

“The rich live below their means, not because they’re so savvy, but because they make so much money that they can afford to live like royalty while still having a king’s ransom socked away for the future.”

13. Average people teach their children how to survive. Rich people teach their kids to get rich.

Rich parents teach their kids from an early age about the world of “haves” and “have-nots,” Siebold says. Even he admits many people have argued that he’s supporting the idea of elitism.

He disagrees.

“[People] say parents are teaching their kids to look down on the masses because they’re poor. This isn’t true,” he writes. “What they’re teaching their kids is to see the world through the eyes of objective reality—the way society really is.”

If children understand wealth early on, they’ll be more likely to strive for it later in life.

14. Average people let money stress them out. Rich people find peace of mind in wealth.

The reason wealthy people earn more wealth is that they’re not afraid to admit that money can solve most problems, Siebold says.

“[The middle class] sees money as a never-ending necessary evil that must be endured as part of life. The world-class sees money as the great liberator, and with enough of it, they are able to purchase financial peace of mind.”

15. Average people would rather be entertained than educated. Rich people would rather be educated than entertained.

While the rich don’t put much stock in furthering wealth through formal education, they appreciate the power of learning long after college is over, Siebold says.

“Walk into a wealthy person’s home and one of the first things you’ll see is an extensive library of books they’ve used to educate themselves on how to become more successful,” he writes.

“The middle class reads novels, tabloids and entertainment magazines.”

16. Average people think rich people are snobs. Rich people just want to surround themselves with like-minded people.

The negative money mentality poisoning the middle class is what keeps the rich hanging out with the rich, he says.

“[Rich people] can’t afford the messages of doom and gloom,” he writes. “This is often misinterpreted by the masses as snobbery.

Labeling the world-class as snobs is another way the middle class finds to feel better bout themselves and their chosen path of mediocrity.”

17. Average people focus on saving. Rich people focus on earning.

Siebold theorizes that the wealthy focus on what they’ll gain by taking risks, rather than how to save what they have.

“The masses are so focused on clipping coupons and living frugally they miss major opportunities,” he writes.

“Even in the midst of a cash flow crisis, the rich reject the nickel and dime thinking of the masses. They are the masters of focusing their mental energy where it belongs: on the big money.”

18. Average people play it safe with money. Rich people know when to take risks.

“Leverage is the watchword of the rich,” Siebold writes.

“Every investor loses money on occasion, but the world-class knows no matter what happens, they will aways be able to earn more.”

19. Average people love to be comfortable. Rich people find comfort in uncertainty.

For the most part, it takes guts to take the risks necessary to make it as a millionaire—a challenge most middle class thinkers aren’t comfortable living with.

“Physical, psychological, and emotional comfort is the primary goal of the middle class mindset,” Siebold writes.

World class thinkers learn early on that becoming a millionaire isn’t easy and the need for comfort can be devastating. They learn to be comfortable while operating in a state of ongoing uncertainty.”

20. Average people never make the connection between money and health. Rich people know money can save your life.

While the middle class squabbles over the virtues of Obama care and their company’s health plan, the super wealthy are enrolled in a super elite “boutique medical care” association, Siebold says.

“They pay a substantial yearly membership fee that guarantees them 24-hour access to a private physician who only serves a small group of members,” he writes.

“Some wealthy neighborhoods have implemented this strategy and even require the physician to live in the neighborhood.”

21. Average people believe they must choose between a great family and being rich. Rich people know you can have it all.

The idea the wealth must come at the expense of family time is nothing but a “cop-out”, Siebold says.

“The masses have been brainwashed to believe it’s an either/or equation,” he writes. “The rich know you can have anything you want if you approach the challenge with a mindset rooted in love and abundance.”

From Steve Siebold, author of “How Rich People Think.”

Rich Thinker, Poor Thinker.

I am reading this book called “I can make you Rich” by a fellow called Paul McKenna. You may have heard of him but I had’nt. Seems he has written several books. This one is introduced by Richard Branson, who, as you know from my blog, I have great admiration for him and of course his success.
I picked this book up at a duty free shop at the airport as I thought it looked interesting and the text was in big print (didnt need my glasses)

Any way this is an article in his book I thought I would Blog as we tend to “forget to think about what we think and say” so I thought I would jog my readers memory on the subject, so we can all be rich. I havent finished the book yet but I think I will enjoy it.

Rich Thinker, Poor Thinker
by Paul McKenna

One of the most important things I learned early on in my study of Wealth is that you can’t necessarily spot the richness of a person’s life by the car they drive or the size of their bank account. That is why I will not be referring to “rich people’ or ‘poor people’ in this book – as far as I am concerned, there’s no such thing. What there is, is a tremendous difference between people who ‘think rich’ and those who ‘think poor’

‘Rich thinkers’ will be rich regardless of the current size of their bank balance – they will always be looking for possibilities and living life on their terms. If they are temporarily low on cash, they won’t be for long, and they somehow always seem to find a way to do what they really want to do in their lives.

‘Poor thinkers’, on the other hand, may have big houses and wear fancy clothes but their heads are filled with fears about the future and mistrust of those around them. Because they don’t know that they would be all right even if all their money disappeared, they are forced to continually try to protect what they have or grab more from others.

Rich thinkers are not necessarily the best educated or most naturally gifted people you will meet, though some of them are – they simply think differently about money than most of society. They realize that making money is neither a mysterious process nor a cosmic reward – its is just a skill, like learning to juggle or riding a bike.

Once you have mastered that skill, you will be able to make money wherever you are and whatever is going on in the world around you. Until you mastered the skill youb may find yourself struggling even while people prosper all around you.

That’s why you could take away all of Richard Branson’s or Anita Roddick’s money and in a very short space of time they would have it all back – simply because the one thing you cannot take away from them is their ability to thin rich and make money as a result.

This is the first key to your success- recognizing that your riches are not in some far off place, but that they are waiting for you to find them inside your mind, right where you are sitting now. And if you’re going to go inside your mind to find them, it’s useful to begin with a clear understanding of the territory you’re about to explore
