Introducing Lou Zerr – loser by name loser by nature!

Lou Zerr - loser by name loser by nature!

Lou Zerr - loser by name loser by nature!

Indifference: Commonly expressed through lack of ambition, willingness to tolerate poverty, acceptance of whatever compensation life may offer without protest, mental and physical laziness, lack of initiative, imagination, enthusiasm and self-control.

Taken from Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill

Can I just ask you a question – does the name Lou Zerr work in America? Here in the UK we say Z as Zed and you Americans say Zee. So does the name Lou Zerr still come out sounding like LOSER? Or should I rename him Lou Serr?

Your comments REALLY appreciated!

Cartoons – How to avoid NEGATIVE people!

July 2, 2009

Do you hang out with ‘can’t do’, ‘no way’ and ‘I’ll never be good at anything’ sort of people? BEWARE, because we become like the people we associate with! Then you’ll constantly be discouraged, on a downer and depressed. Instead, surround yourself with positive people those who can inspire and motivate you so you can, should, and do take action.

Hiding under desk from Mr.Negative!

Avoid negative people and don’t feel guilty about it – period!

Maybe you have a friend who needs to challenge everything you say – avoid them!

Avoid negative people at work.Don’t pick up the phone or answer the door if a certain negative individual is calling or coming by.(See above cartoon!)

Turn the television off during news briefs that focus on what’s wrong in your community or even the world. Negative news travels fast – very fast!(Do you think all this recession would be as bad if it wasn’t for the press/media going on about it all the time?)

Avoid reading newspapers, books or magazines that may portray or write a story on negative people.

Don’t get sucked into negative conversations.

Here’s some proactive steps you can take to align ourselves with positive people:  You could also visit this blog everyday!

Visit other online forums and get involved with positive discussions.

Go to local community events, clubs or groups.

Organize a positive mentoring group.

Listen to upbeat music, instead of talk show radio programs.

In negative conversations change the subject to something positive so that you don’t get sucked in.

Find other avenues of socializing as opposed to drinking in bars, such as joining clubs, going for walks in the park or opting for a nice dinner out on the town instead. (With exception to bars like this…)

The DEMON of DOUBT!

June 29, 2009

The Demon of Doubt – he plagues us all. You’ve got to ZAP him as soon as he enters your mind.

The Deomn of Doubt

The Demon of Doubt

Here’s a few ‘doubt’ quotes to chew on…

“Any belief worth having must survive doubt” (Sorry forgot where I got this from!)

“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt” – William Shakespeare

“When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt” (And this one!)

“What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt – it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.” – Hal Boyle

Happiness is to be found along the way!

June 25, 2009

“Happiness is to be found along the way, not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it is too late. Today, this hour, this minute is the day, the hour, the minute for each of us to sense the fact that life is good, with all of its trials and troubles, and perhaps more interesting because of them.”

Robert R. Updegraff
Author of “Be Thankful For Your Troubles”

June 24, 2009

Don’t you just love sports quotes? I know I do, quotes that inspire me, quotes to learn from. I’d write them down – even draw little cartoons to go with them. I’d look at them over and over again. I’d stick them on my wall, next to my computer screen and anywhere that I’d see them on a regular basis. Hopefully the following quotes on my new blog will inspire you and your friends. Share and enjoy them!

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 10

June 19, 2009

REASON # 10 – You worry what your family and
friends would think about you if you read or listened
to self-development material.

Im going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I'm going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I was always embarrassed about reading self-development
books on the train into work.

That was until I realised who was still going to be on the
same train in five years time, and I knew it wasn’t going to
be me!

I still get raised eyebrows from my family, but I will be
the one who is smiling when I achieve what I know that I can
achieve. Only this evening…my sister laughed out loud when
I told her that my eBook was called “The Science of Success”

But…at least I am doing what I want to do.

I take my personal development seriously.

Others may ridicule you…or laugh behind your back…but
they will be the jealous ones when you reach your dream…
and they are still stuck in never-never land!

So the moral of the story is…

Do what you want to do with your life…and not what others
say you should do.

Cartoon video for Everything Counts web site intro!

Cartoon movie for Everything Counts web site!

June 16, 2009

The above cartoon video was produced with Gary Ryan Blair of The Goals Guy. Gary emailed me the audio file and I  listened to this and jotted down ideas, created all the cartoons to suit the script and emailed them back to him. There was some going backwards and forwards before we got all the cartoons right. It was something new for me to work on and was very challenging. A very enjoyable project!

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 9

June 15, 2009

REASON # 9 – You worry more about job security,
than how happy you are.

Enjoy your ONE life!

Enjoy your ONE life!

Job security is all in your mind.

How do you know that the company you work for will be around
in a year’s time, let alone ten year’s time? If you dread
waking up on a Monday morning…

- Find a different job, or
– Find a way to supplement your income so that you can leave
and do what you would really love to do.

I went against my wife and family and quit my job, despite
having no savings. I quit to do this. It’s what I want to do
with my life. Period.

Two years ago, I was counting the years to I retired at 60
with a full two-thirds pension. So what changed?

I changed…because the world won’t.

I decided that I couldn’t be unhappy for 40+ hours a week
…I decided that I wanted to see my family grow up…I
decided that I wanted to help my wife more with our
disabled son.

I decided to do what I wanted to do…and not what society
expects me to do. That’s why I wrote my eBook -
“The Science of Success”

I had a good career…with a decent salary. But I realised
that we are here to enjoy life…and not to struggle with
life. I have seen enough miserable people who work 70+
hours a week and have a fantastic salary…yet their kids
hardly know them.

It’s your life…and you only get one shot at it.

So you might as well enjoy it!

I hope that this part of the report has shown you
that there are more ways to be a success, other than what
can be measured in monetary terms.
