I hope people are not asking that question. If they are, then I have been out of the loop for too long.

A year ago this month, my father lost his battle with lung cancer.

2012 Christmas

I don’t know if the tragic loss of the person who was the patriarch of our family was the reason for my lapse of motivation or not – I just know that the drive and ambition to succeed at this Internet Marketing thing seems to have evaporated.

I get up and sit at my computer and find myself 5 hours later having accomplished little, except a trail of Facebook status updates and likes. Once the clock hits 5PM, it is very rare if I am seen in my office for the rest of the night. Once in a while, I find myself motivated enough to do some real work and I will post a WSO to WSOInsiders.com or some products to BuyFromAzon.com. If it weren’t for automation, some of my blogs would be sadly neglected.

I know that the entrepreneur in me is still here. He is probably planning something really big, but he has not shared it with me, his host body. So until he decides to take over for a while, I will just keep the wheels turning and the plates spinning and thank God for Pure Leverage and GVO keeping a roof over my head.

If you happen to interact with me on Facebook, Twitter or any of my blogs… please help encourage my inner muse to come back out and play, because without him, it just isn’t very fun anymore.

While I was at the ER with my dad yesterday, I was 
thinking about how he had gotten to this point.

Pneumonia was making it almost impossible for him to
breathe and kidney failure was making it difficult for
his system to clean itself out.

As he was telling the doctor in the ER that he wanted
to live, it struck me as odd that he had been behaving
as though he had wanted to die.

For the last couple months, his appetite had disappeared.

He was losing weight rather quickly, and it was not 
uncommon for him to take two bites of something and
say he wasn’t hungry.

When your system is not getting the nourishment it
needs to survive, it starts breaking down muscle from
your body to get protein. The organs don’t get much
in the way of nourishment and struggle to do their jobs.

Then, in the last few days, he had stopped drinking.

No water, no coffee, no tea. Once in a while he would
take a couple sips to get his medicine down. But not
enough to give his body the ability to replenish itself.

So while he was telling the doctor he wanted to stay
alive, his actions up until that point had been trying to
kill him.

In business, we often do that to ourselves. We say
we want to succeed, but when we are left to our own
devices, we don’t do the tasks we need to be doing 
to assure that success.

So while you may be saying that you want to earn 6
figures this year, your actions are saying that you 
really just want to stay where you are.

That is where having someone to guide you and 
take a look at where you are and what you are
doing can help you to take the correct actions that
you need to be doing to achieve your goals.

Don’t just tread water. Do the activities that will
help you succeed.

I want to help you.

I am mentoring people who are part of my team in
one of three businesses that I am building. Join me
and get the coaching to help you build an income in
one of three niches (you could go for all three, but
it would be better to start one at a time to keep
from burning out).

Niche #1: Internet Marketing – you can become a hosting reseller.

http://hostingforprofit.com/ten/

Niche #2: Fitness – you can help people lose weight.

http://7x3wo.com

Niche #3: Communications – you can help save people money.

http://49dc.co

In all three of these niches, we have a team of great trainers
who will help you grow your business. A system is in place 
to help you get where you want to go, and to get measurable
results.

Don’t tell people you want to succeed and then show them
the opposite with your actions…

Join my team and we will help you get on the right track.

    When you have been with other people in your life for a long period of time, living alone is the loneliest thing imaginable. It makes all of the faults you had been finding in the people around you seem insignificant. Knowing you are not going to have to fight for the bathroom is not a victory, it wrenches your insides like a blow to the stomach.

    So when I get started in the morning, having my cups of coffee, usually I start looking for products to post on WSOInsiders.com… But lately, I find that I am not focusing on anything. I remember that feeling before, when I was diagnosed with depression – and got hooked on the drugs that make you into a drone. Sure, I was smiling, but I never really felt much of anything.

    I suppose I should be happy that I am not on the drugs, that I can feel. Feeling is what makes us human. But when you start missing hair in the bathtub and not getting any of the blankets at night… those are the symptoms of loneliness and they really make you feel human.

    I am sure this too will pass. So please do not think I am ignoring you. I will be back to normal one way or another. I just hope it is not the medicated me that you see.

     

    PS – In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown – my problems are small potatoes. I could not imagine the anguish that I would be feeling if I knew that my loved ones have been taken away from me by someone else. Of course, knowing I am responsible does little to console me.

    When one door closes, another opens. I just have to make sure I can keep my eyes open and seeing so I don’t miss it.

      For those of you who have been asking what the heck is bothering me, I have to ask you to be patient.

      I never imagined that people could notice a change in the style and content of what someone posts to social media. Ok, so I did sound a little down, I admit it.

      I am still coming to terms with it myself, and I am finding it very difficult to work it out in my own mind. Writing helps, but sometimes the writing becomes too dark and I have to stop.

      My daughter texted me and asked me if I was alright, as she had noticed the darkness in my Facebook posts. I really didn’t want to tell her about it, because it was similar to what she was going through not even three months ago. I had tried to be objective and to tell her she shouldn’t feel so bad, but when you are the one going through it, you really can’t be told that it is just an emotion.

      When it happens to you, it really does hurt. So I am going to send a public apology to everyone I have ever hurt. I really mean it, it sucks that I caused you this kind of pain, and I hope you can forgive me for inflicting that kind of pain to you.

      Anyway, the sorting out process is difficult. I am really trying to avoid becoming bitter (no easy task, when sarcasm comes out without even thinking… so when you spend a lot of time thinking, the sarcasm has a venom to it that makes it really easy to hurt people). Bitterness is the starting point to hatred. I do not want to hate anyone. Hating is a good way to make a bad thing permanent…

      But damn, it is so easy to want to hate. To make the person who has hurt you pay in the worst way.

      Anyway, you probably can tell that I am not comfortable discussing this, and my daughter is the only one I have confided in about this. I really do not need my family in Quebec getting all distraught and trying to make me feel better. Pity sucks worse than feeling sorry for yourself. So rather than expect to get pitied by everyone, it is much better to just go on living and try like heck to put the negative feelings behind you.

      But that damn venom is still in my mouth… I really need to spit it out and get back to the me that the world knows and loves (well most of the world – there are still a few third world countries and at least one person in Ocala that are ambivalent about me) and I am sure that I will.

      Just please bear with me as I sort myself out. And leave me some comments to help me know that I am not alone!

        A social media star recently took his own life after struggling with depression. I call him a star because he was well respected by many in the social media community. In hindsight, many who went through his final hours on Facebook say they could see a man who had already made up his mind that his life was over. But how could we as a community have prevented this?

        Depression is something that we have all felt. It is a sinking feeling within our very souls, that we are lacking something we desperately need to give us joy. Sometimes it is a chemical imbalance. Most of the time it is just hormones or a consistent programming of our subconscious mind to believe that we need something to make us happy.

         

        That still leaves us with the question: Are women really more depressed than ever?

        Professor David Healey, director of psychological medicine at Cardiff University, thinks this is unlikely. Instead, he says, the leap in prescriptions for antidepressants may be seen as a triumph for drug company sales departments.

        http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2036632/Why-women-depressed-Is-real-epidemic–result-cynical-marketing-drug-giants.html

        Drug companies have been trying really hard to make us believe we are more depressed than we should be, and that it is a medical condition. I went through a depression in the late 90’s, and the doctors tried using drugs to help me. The drugs made me numb to the world. They did not cure my depression. When they tried to switch the drugs on me, I almost had a nervous breakdown, and I actually had suicidal thoughts. The real cause was the way I was handling my relationship, but I did not want to blame myself for a failing relationship. Much better to just take the drugs.

        Until I tried to take myself off those drugs. It took over 6 months, and my legs felt like they had electrodes pulsing electricity through them every few minutes. The sensation was terrible, and it took a long time to go away.

        I wish I had had an opportunity to attend Celebrate Recovery back then. It wasn’t until I attended CR in 2008 that I actually got over my depression. I had mostly gotten away from it because I had thrown myself into my online work from 2007 onwards, and because I was too busy to think about it, I didn’t suffer from the intense lows that I used to have.

        Every once in a while, I would come close, but usually getting in touch with one of my friends online would help me through it. But Celebrate Recovery helped me accept that I am not perfect, and that I can fail and still get up and brush myself off and try again. I never again thought of giving up.

        Which Brings Me Back To Today

        Yesterday I got some bad news. I felt like I had gotten kicked in the stomach. The worst part was it came when I was away from home, I am in Canada to help my parents get packed up and then we are going to drive back home to Florida. But this bad news felt like a sucker punch.

        Of course I could have seen it coming. It was all my fault, but when you pretend the problem doesn’t exist, you kind of hope it will go away. Mine didn’t go away in the way that I anticipated. The reason for the problem went away. So now I face the prospect of the drive to Florida to an empty house when I get home. I will survive, but I will definitely have to remember to forgive myself for my failures and dust myself off… because I will most certainly go on!
