Fads, Trends & Foolishness – Part II

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Fads and trends are tools of manipulation and forms of brainwashing. You have to take control of your life or the world around you will do it for you, but with no regard for you or your Destiny. The world even manipulates those in “High Society,” to play the fad and trend game. The famous red carpet seen prior to some award shows has nothing to do with honoring those nominated. It is all about marketing and making money, which is their bottom line.

The fashion industry goes crazy trying to get the right tuxedo or dress on the right actor or actress – knowing that some sucker will want to buy it after they have worn it once. Moreover, most of the nominees and presenters get goody bags worth thousands of dollars. They are packed with products for them to wear and show, as they happen to be out for their morning coffee, bagel or whatever else. The public sees these items and cannot stop talking about what they saw and how to get one.

It does not matter that the celebrities did not buy the stuff themselves. Nor does it matter how much it cost or that the manufacturer made thousands of the same product – knowing that once exposed, the public will scramble to buy it. However, none of this matters because millions of people have been conditioned to respond this way to the, “latest and greatest” regardless of how ridiculous or expensive it may be. Trust me; this is the oldest con in the book – a trap that takes more than just your money but also your soul (uniqueness).

Side Note: There is nothing wrong with admiring your favorite celebrities. However, do not just admire but also be inspired. Too often, people do not use their admiration of another person’s success as inspiration to obtain their own success. They remain spectators in the game of life instead of players.

Fads, Trends & Foolishness – Part I

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Too often, people follow fads and trends with no understanding of what it all means. They work hard to fit into social cliques that have nothing to do with their Destiny. As a result, they allow the world around them to tell them who they are and how they should live – becoming something that is far beneath their potential. The price for this social acceptance is their uniqueness. This is why I say often; why settle for being a carbon copy when you were created to be an original?

The hairstyles, tattoos, body piercings, and baggy pants drooping below the butt are not marks of uniqueness but of conformity. In addition, the only illogical reason for anyone to start smoking is to fit into a group or to appear cool – regardless of the fact that it can cause cancer and early death. Unfortunately, many people rather conform instead of being transformed, by the renewing of their minds. Conformity is only possible when an individual does not know, who they are and where they are going in life.

Just because something has been done for a long time, does not mean we should continue to do it or that it is right. At one time, slavery was acceptable but it was never right. Chasing fads and trends can cost you your Destiny. Therefore, you must learn to appreciate your uniqueness and value what you bring to the world, instead of chasing people or things that you deem valuable. Below are some key words you need to understand:

Unique = existing as the only one or as the sole example; single; solitary in type or characteristics. Having no like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable; not typical; unusual. – Dictonary.com

Original = new; fresh; inventive. An original work, writing, or the like, as opposed to any copy or imitation. A person whose way of thinking or acting is original. – Dictonary.com

Check Your Environment – Part I

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Environment = the complex of social and cultural conditions affecting the nature of an individual or community. – Dictonary.com

Birds of a feather will always flock together, because it naturally creates a support system for that particular lifestyle. This can be either good or bad, depending on what those you associate with are doing with their lives. They will either hinder you or help you accomplish your Destiny. If those you hang with the most accept you for where and who you are right now, then you will not change. It is only when those closest to you or the severity of your circumstances push you to change, will you make the choice to change. This is why homosexuality continues to run rampant in the United States and many parts of the world. However, when you stop to define what the above word means, you will see that those who participate in that lifestyle are walking contradictions:

Homosexuality = sexual (erotic) orientation, activity (lifestyle) or attraction between persons of the same sex. – Dictonary.com

Therefore, by the above definition we can conclude that there is something fundamentally wrong with this way of living. For example, if a man is a homosexual then by the above definition he should be attracted to another man, i.e. someone who speaks, acts, and dresses like a man. The same should hold true for women who are lesbians. If this is true then why are homosexual men speaking, acting and sometimes dressing like women? If a lesbian woman is supposed to be attracted to a woman then why are some speaking, acting, and dressing like men? Moreover, there is no medical or scientific proof that a person is “born this way.” In fact, their birth certificate will say either boy or girl – not “Alternative Lifestyle.” Therefore, alternative is just that, an alternative to the original, which will always be second best.

Get Your Mind Right

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Until your mind (way of thinking and seeing life) and your soul (way of living – character) gets free, you can never be free. You will continue the destructive cycle that has been laid out for you, by a society that cares nothing for you. Your only value to them is their bottom line – money. This is why you must find the reason for which you were created, and its significance for the time in which you live. What contribution(s) are you meant to make in the world before your time runs out?

If one thing is true then the opposite must also be true. For example, if you are a non-smoker then by your lifestyle you are saying that you do not agree with smoking. A non-drug user is saying by their lifestyle that they do not agree with using drugs. And the list goes on. My point is this; knowing your purpose requires taking a stand for what you were put on this earth to accomplish. In addition, you must be willing to stand out (be different) from the crowd. No one can stop you, once your mind is set to fulfill your Destiny.

It is like this; everyone has the right to do what he or she wants, within the confines of the law. However, there are those gray areas of life that are not regulated by laws. Therefore, it is important to know that although you have a right to choose, does not mean that every choice is right. Moreover, with every right or privilege comes a responsibility to do what is right.

Determine Your Worth

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

When I thought of writing my first book – “Chapter One: A Modern Day Testimony,” I had to see the value of my life before and during the writing process. There were many times I thought to myself, “Who would want to read about my life?” I had to find value in my experiences and believe they would encourage others who read them. This kept me focused and determined to finish what I started. In addition, if I did not write the first book then chances are I never would have written my second book – leading up to this book, which is number seven.

Do you believe that what is in you has great potential to affect positive change, in the lives of those around you? You have to see it and settle it or not much in your life will change to manifest your desires. However, even if you keep things the same in your life, the world around you will continue to change. Until you get a clear vision for your life, the world around you will continue to sway you, resulting in the worst kind of “Identity Crisis.” We all go through some form of identity crisis on the road of discovering our true self. We all want attention and acceptance.

However, what price are you willing to pay for it? Most of the time; the price is too high. In addition, because so many people do not know their self-worth, they spend most of their life pursuing material things, instead of pursuing their Destiny. They think that their self-worth will increase along with the accumulation of things. The world has trained us to pursue money and things rather than our Destiny. However, if you pursue your Destiny the money and things will come.

The Purpose of Destiny

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Success seems to be, reserved for those who are willing to do almost anything to obtain it. Greedy ambitions stir the hearts and minds of millions to achieve this seemingly, impossible ambition with the hope that at the end of it all, they will be happy. However, they get to the end of all their toil, only to discover that their millions of dollars have not purchased them happiness but more misery. Their message and mission was all about themselves and making money – missing the mark of why success granted them access. They missed that it was given to them to help others:

Destiny = something that is to happen or has happened to a particular person or thing; lot or fortune. The power or agency that determines the course of events. – Dictonary.com

Purpose = the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc. an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal – determination; resoluteness. – Dictonary.com

Benevolence = desire to do good to others; goodwill; charitableness. An act of kindness; a charitable gift. – Dictonary.com

The purpose of Destiny is to solve real problems and needs in the lives of others. There are people waiting for what you have. Life is not about how much we can get but about how much we can give.

It’s Time to Start Living

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Most people wake up Monday through Friday and sometimes Saturday, to go to work and earn a paycheck. Then they take that paycheck and cash it so they can pay bills, buy food, clothing, etc. They may put some money aside for a “rainy day” or pay off some accumulated debt. That is pretty much the definition of their life: working, paying bills, and buying stuff. It is a never-ending cycle leading nowhere. Then one day unexpectedly, it is here, their final day on earth – death. As they look back over their life, it hits them like a ton of bricks that they never really lived.

Many live their life playing it safe, only to get to the end with a bag full of regrets and shattered dreams. This is one of the greatest tragedies of the human experience. When death comes knocking, your eyes are open wider than they have ever been but “Father Time” has caught up with you and there are no extensions available. Death is the ultimate “Wakeup Call.” Unfortunately, when it comes, it is too late to do what you could have, should have, or would have done. Well, consider this book to be your official “wakeup call before it is too late. Life is a one shot, non-negotiable privilege that we should not waste.

Life is like a Highway

   Posted by: Jimason    in General

Many people are cruising down the highway of life without a map (vision), confident they are going in the right direction. The fact that so many people are going in the same direction reinforces this assumption. However, as they travel they periodically see people driving pass them on the left, going in the opposite direction. Pride quickly rises up in them as they assume these people are going the wrong way. After all, there are millions of people doing what they are doing. “Not all these people can be wrong,” they say to themselves.

Regardless of their reasoning and vast knowledge of life, they continue to see people driving pass them on the left, going in the opposite direction. In addition, those going in the opposite direction are always alone. They are never traveling with or following a crowd. In fact, crowds are following them. Some consider them to be either crazy or trail blazers. Eventually, this phenomenon sparks curiosity in the observing driver, who now wants to understand what all of this means.

Unfortunately, fear quickly rises up within them and tells them to stay the course, because it is easier to do what everyone else is doing than to stand out from the crowd. As this person continues to follow the crowd, they begin to think that maybe the crowd is going the wrong way, and not those going in the opposite direction. This crowd may possibly be cruising down the highway of life without a map (vision). If so, then they cannot possible know where they are going.

“Therefore, why am I following them?” they say to themselves and immediately begin to slow down. Within seconds, they pull over to the side of the road to contemplate what to do next. Once you realize that you are going the wrong way, please do not continue to drive out of pride. Pull over, take a moment to think about your life and make the necessary changes. Type new directions into your GPS (mind and heart) and allow it to guide you to where you need to go – Destiny.

Another analogy is this; many live their lives like a ship on the sea without a rudder. As a result, every wave of social change and wind of immoral compromise, tosses them like a toy with no end in sight. The stormy rains (challenges of life) beat down upon them – forcing their square peg life to fit into the round hole of conformity. This process brings them far beneath their potential and far away from their Destiny.

Unfortunately, the world we live in is not tolerant of everyone becoming successful or rich, although there is enough money for everyone to live comfortably. However, having a lot of money should not be anyone’s ultimate goal in life. Many rich people have become slaves to their own prosperity. When the stock market is up, they are emotionally up. When the stock market is down, they are emotionally down. If the stock market plummets, so do they – splat on the sidewalk outside of their high-rise office building.

They made six-figures, had a nice company car, and a benefits package that most people do not know exist. They put their hopes and dreams into something that did not have their best interests at heart. In fact, it lied to them. It told them that all they needed to be happy was to make a lot of money and possess a lot of stuff. However, the more you have the more taxes, insurance and other fees you will have to pay to maintain or protect them. It can quickly become overwhelming to say the least. Many rich people have so much debt from impulse buying, to “Keep up with the Jones’,” that they are technically no better off than a person making less than 50k a year.

For many, “getting paid” is their only goal in life. They strive so hard and for so long to get money that it becomes an addiction. No matter how much they have, it is never enough. They prosper financially but their souls remain empty and void of life. Sadness hovers over them like dark clouds on what was supposed to be a sunny day (life). In all their pursuing, they failed to pursue their Destiny, which could have brought fulfillment for their soul, which cries out to them daily. The conclusion of a life lived this way is vanity and vexation of spirit. When money becomes your only pursuit in life, you really become poor in spirit – shallow.

You have to understand that money is merely a tool and should never become your identity. Money is a tool for living, helping others and fulfilling our Destiny. Unfortunately, many strive to accumulate a lot of stuff, thinking it will somehow add to their self-worth. The more they have the more valuable they feel. Their identity is based upon their material things rather than the content of their character. They fail to understand, that true value or lack of value is solely based upon one’s character – nothing more. This is important to know because we can only produce what we are on the inside whether good or bad.

Since success is relative, we should view it in the context of our Destiny. Only then will we know what true success looks like for us. When you really think about success, it is about what fulfills you and makes you glad that you are alive. It is usually the simple things in life, like watching a baby take his or her first steps. Then years later, watching that same child, walk across a stage to receive their high school diploma. Unfortunately, those who only measure success by money and material things seem more concerned with impressing people rather than impacting them.
