Hey, what's up? This is the luckiest man in the world. Well, I just got my wish. My site has become an official social-network. I started this journey about two years ago. Didn't know where it would lead. With very little knowledge of the internet, and to be honest, other than a couple of books of stamps, I was flat broke. People had come and gone. No one could see my dream the way I did. No matter how you beg and plead with people, they just may not understand. But I continued to keep my dream alive. Not only did I dream, but I also put action behind it. I have been reading every newspaper and magazine article that came out on social networking; as well as getting the books. I basically educated myself. And today it paid off big time.

Even though we have only 49 people on the site right now, my goal is to have a 1,000 people before the month is over. I plan to take over, one person at a time. For all the people that said I couldn't do it - here it is, looking at you. Please go by and check it out and put a profile up. I wish you would help me get these 1,000 people. There are people that said I couldn't do this right now. But you know, I don't listen to what people say. It's us against the world. I appreciate your help in advance, and let me know what you think about it.

Love y'all,

Failed Promises

"My word is my bond." The phrase is a verbal promise made from one person to another. It's more valuable than any contract that's written. Often I hear people making verbal promises to someone, then turning right around and breaking that same promise. It really hurts us when a person we trust gives us their word and then they fail to fulfill their promise or agreement that they made. That only shows the flaws, deceit, and inherent weakness in one's character. No promise should ever be broken, yet so many of them are. And many more will continue to be broken if people are not willing to live up to their words and responsibilities. When we give somebody our word, we release a part of our inner soul to them; and it's usually to a person we love, trust, or highly respect. Still, most of the times, people will turn around and hurt the same person by not keeping their promise. It's true that we often hurt the one's we love, because they are the closest to us. The people that accept our promises without question are the most vulnerable. And the truth is, they believe in us more than we believe in ourselves. At the end of the day, they are the ones who suffer because failed promises turn into big lies. We need to start keeping our word and living up to the promises we make to others. We need to not only say what we mean, but to mean what we say. Never give a person a promise or your word, that you don't plan on keeping. Your promises are a reflection of who you are. When a person keeps their promise, they are respected and trusted more. Others are willing to open themselves up to them. They are looked at as a person that keeps his or her words, and that will only make people respect them more. Just remember this: The opposite of a promise is a lie.

Kenneth Moore: Get Proactive

"People of action are favored by the goddess of Luck. The Harder they work the luckier they get."

Take control of your situation and start building your future today. Set aside some time everyday to educate yourself and put in the work. Start studying, start your "wealth account" and order your credit report. If you have taken these steps, you will have started down the road to riches. If you want to be in a bigger and better game, you have to think bigger and better. Most people feel trapped and frustrated because they have stopped dreaming. If you have reasonable and realistic goals with an achievable time frame, dreams can come true. People tend to fear what they don't know and they also tend to take the easy route whenever possible. In the short term, that is more comfortable for them; but in the long run, it's the same old thing over and over. Too many bills, not enough money, and no plans for the future. Your life is what you make it. If you want to be worth more, then start investing in yourself. When you spend your entire life working for someone else, all you do is make other people wealthy. On top of that, you teach your children to do the same. Make a conscious decision to create a different cycle: A wealth cycle. Knowledge is Key.

Toxic People

In almost every situation there's good and bad. Winners and losers. Then there are the people out there that see the world, and everything in it, as one big problem. They are what we call "Toxic People." People that always bring their negative energy around, and do whatever they can to sour a positive mood. They walk, talk, eat, sleep, and live in a realm of pure negativity. Their only intention is finding more ways to make other people suffer from their misery. They focus on the nit picking, little negative details. They get a kick out of seeing that smile on your face fade and disappear permanently. These people are dangerous and poisonous for your well-being. They complain, bicker, argue, yell, lie, manipulate, cheat, steal, and will do whatever else it takes to smother or ruin a positive situation. And nothing or no one can change their ways, because it's a disease that can't be cured. They live off of seeing others go through misery and pain. Because, no crab wants to be in a pot alone. Misery loves company. These toxic people take delight in bursting your positive bubble. It's the highlight of their day. They don't agree on anything, but disgaree with everything. If you know toxic people like this, don't walk away; run as fast as you can and never look back. Because sooner or later, their constant negativity will drain the life out of you. There are lots of unsuccessful and medicore people that never reached their true potential. The reason why: They let toxic people get into their head and preach them failure and self-pity.

Hey, what's up everybody?

Hope these gas prices aren't driving everybody insane. How has everybody been doing? Well me, I have been grinding ahead; trying to get this autobiography finished up, along with the movie script. Black Scarface is being edited. The video game is coming along too. As you can see, I keep a full plate. Can't stop, won't stop. Well, I have been fortunate for the past two weeks; we have been having early lockdowns. So it's kind of bad I can't stay on the computer as late, but the good news I have been able to read. And being able to do that has been really exciting. One of my pupils that I have been mentoring has been reading The Richest Man in Babylon. So when I asked about the story, some questions that I want to know about couldn't be answered. I almost know the book by heart but not quite. And as you might know, every time you read it, there will be something you miss. And it's amazing to me how everybody thinks I am so lucky. But nobody will look at the hardships I have been through or the sacrifices I have been making. I haven't watched tv in over two years, nor have I listen to the radio. My time is spent emailing, writing letters, reading books, or discussing our business plan among our think-tank. So out of reading the book, this time I ran across something I would love to share with everybody.

"Fortunate only in that I had the desire to prosper before I first met him. For four years did I not prove my definiteness of purpose by keeping one-tenth of all I earned? Would you call a fisherman lucky who for year so studied the habits of the fish that with each changing wind he could cast his nets about them? Opportunity is a haughty goddess who wastes no time with those who are unprepared. "
