Would We Never Look Back

If you never joined the battle, there is no need to retreat.
A peaceable, slow-paced life, with the vantage point of relative contentment and steadfastness, is thought of as desirable if you place the emphasis of your goals on the desire for meditative reflection.  It’s not unheard of, naturally.  It’s what resembles retirement.  If your aims are to forget modern trappings, then staking a claim to a life of modesty and withdrawal may be what, if you are young enough to choose, you create yourself doing.  If you aren’t drawn into the momentum of the rat race, if for whatever reason you find yourself removed from the shotput exercise of dogged competition, this could be the life for you.

Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is the word retreat, which at first led me to think about possible ways to experience retreat, and moreover how to avoid entering a situation from which you require retreat.  The goal of enacting progress which leads to the outcome of realizing one’s ambitions might be successful, or it may bring you to a halt from which you can, optimistically speaking, turn about face and retreat to safer territory.  You need to be prepared for what’s ahead when you are up against difficult odds, and this is what is somewhat euphemistically referred to as hard work, or dedication to one’s own pursuits and prowess.  It isn’t without risk that an individual commit himself to scoping success.  It just is much safer that the same individual weigh in himself the possibility that he will need to retreat, and to leave himself an exit strategy, that if business goes south in a hurry, that he, too, can back on out of there and make a hasty retreat.
I hope it doesn’t happen to you.

Fortune is the Result of Aim Coupled with Dedication

Today’s WordPress daily prompt is the word, “fortune.”  When you reflect on fortune, you might think of the sixty hours you could put in at work each week, and the money that goes with the right efforts of long hours of effort.  You can make mastery out of your life, if you have the right drive, experiences, and initiative.  It may take early mornings, long hours of study, and perspiration.  However, if you write your own formula for ingenuity, you might find yourself gearing up for sought-after rewards.  It is up to you to make your fortune.
With any luck, you’ve gained some intuition by your education.  You’ve become schooled, set goals for yourself, and become aware of the dictates set by your own heart.  You’ve gone forward into employment, taken on entrepreneurship, begun to accumulate material wealth.  It is the first ties you have to success.  You have the key to the door for future growth.
I’ve become interested in Patrick Bet-David’s channel for videos on YouTube about entrepreneurship, known as Valuetainment.  Bet-David is like a philosopher to the business world.  He has a deep-seated drive to enrich himself and he undertakes a radical approach to business savvy.  His vision for Valuetainment, as I understand it, is to communicate expertise for those likewise amassing countless hours of the single-minded pursuit of achievements of commerce.  What first captivated me about Bet-David and Valuetainment is Patrick’s thoughts on the future of Twitter.  He has clearly reflected at length on what can be done for the future of the ailing social media giant.  I knew then that Patrick Bet-David was a man of excellent character and insight into concerns which personally were aware in me.  I was stunned that the man has such a terrific grasp of questions which were likewise occurring to me, and of course to many others.  You should take a look at what he said.
I will continue to share some of the Valuetainment YouTube videos, to Twitter, knowing that occasionally they will spark an moment of interest in people exploring both popular social media platforms.  It is necessary to put in the hours for success if you want to be like Bet-David.  I’m a lightweight, merely playing; but there will be those for who Valuetainment presents answers.  Do take a look.
Don’t overlooking subscribing to Valuetainment on Youtube, and consider “liking” this post, “following” my blog and/or commenting.  I appreciate you dropping by, and good luck to you whatever you take on in 2017 and beyond.  I wish you all the best.

New Horizon: 2017 and the quest for skyward glory

dscf8634

This week’s WordPress photo challenge asked participants to explore New Year’s Resolutions.  With the change happening with the momentum of a mountain avalanche, it must be with sails set we investigate the future.  There’s never been better opportunities to get in the game.  Whatever our potential, it is the ponderous acumen to get in alongside our peers and our mentors, that we stake our individual claims in 2017.  However and whatever we understand it to be, the glory of a better tomorrow will take hold in our respective imaginings if we understand that we have our grip on what’s tremendous in the mindset of our personal crux.  We have everything to do and, for all intents and purposes, one year to do it in.
Star Wars reigns in this day and age, if you are of a heart that’s dear to the galactic battles originally envisioned by George Lucas.  Once more the call comes down to vanquish Darth Vader and the Empire.  If you have been enthralled by the science fiction opus all along, you will want to summon your reserves of imagination in order to once more seize the day with Star Wars Rogue One, giving wind to flights of fancy which will carry you into the year 2017.  The future looks brighter if you are of a mind to embrace the science fiction of Star Wars.  It’s never been a better time to do so.
The other force for good is social. Social and branding on social is triumphantly becoming ever the more expansive as we come to a better understand of ourselves as a people joined collectively by the best intelligence on social and by the propulsion of travelling impossible distances as we brand ourselves online.  It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say that everything we represent in ourselves to our peers becomes as fantasy meets reality as content and social continue to evolve in 2017.
Times will always have their share of troubles and there will always be gaps in our freedoms.  Turning our attention to the Internet and also outer space means that we will avail ourselves of woe and of turbulence to come out the other side running.  Thanks to technology and to the creative spirit that beats in the heart of mankind we have this year, 2017, in which to make it a go.  If you think you see the spirit of what I’m decreeing, given that the WordPress photo challenge this week asks us to reflect, by all means, please “like” and/or “follow” and comment.  Thank you for reading, and Happy New Year.  Good luck in the year 2017.
