Don't Die With Your Music Still In You

Tuesday, December 16, 2014, started out similar to most of my days. After I had awakened, I checked my e-mail messages like I do first thing. Then, I checked my messages here at IBO Toolbox. Then, on LinkedIn and Facebook and Twitter. Then, my telephone messages both on my office telephone and on my cell phone. Then, my incoming text messages. This is part of my daily routine.

Then, my cell phone rang. The Caller I.D. revealed that it was my youngest brother calling. He had some bad news. He shared with me that my C.P.A. had passed on the night before. My C.P.A.'s mother had told one of my older brothers and then my older brother had told our youngest brother who then, in turn, told me. My C.P.A. was much more than my tax adviser. He was a good friend. He and I attended high school together. After he and I graduated from high school, we invited another friend of ours and we took off on a 2-week graduation celebration vacation to Hollywood, California. We wanted to see the Pacific Ocean. We wanted to see Hollywood. We drove through Colorado and saw the Rocky Mountains. We spent a night with one of my older brothers who lived in Tucson, Arizona and we witnessed the desert. The three of us had a grand time together. We created fond life-long memories. After that summer, my C.P.A. went off to college in northeast Missouri. Our other friend went to work for a grocery chain. I went off to college in Kansas City, Missouri.

I was reading my C.P.A.'s obituary and learned something that I did not previously know. It turns out that my C.P.A. had been a world traveler. He took, the obituary revealed, adventurous vacations. One thing that I did know about my C.P.A. was that he seemed to be always happy. He always had a smile on his face and in his voice. He had many, many people who loved him and respected him. He was but 56 years young. My age. He was born 2 months before I was. I will sorely miss him. Yet, his energy remains and lives on.

This evening during the Coach's Corner Mastermind Call hosted by Mentoring For Free, the founder and creator Michael Dlouhy reminded each person on the Call that time is our most valuable asset. Michael also often reminds us to live our lives in such a way that none of us die with our music still inside us. I know it is difficult sometimes to live the lives we want to live because of the demands life often places upon us. But, it does not have to be that way. Network Marketing is the only vehicle I know of where average people may earn the kind of money that will allow them to live life the way they want to live it. Network Marketing is the only vehicle I know of that may allow average people to own their life and live life in such a way that they do not have to die with their music still inside them. My C.P.A. friend did not die with his music still inside him. He lived life the way he wanted to live it. He enjoyed himself and the people who were privileged to know him enjoyed him.

That is what I want. I want to own my life. I want to be in control of what I do. I want to do things because only I choose to do them. Not because others choose things for me to do. I want to live my life in such a way that I do not die with my music still inside me.

P.S. If you are a frustrated network marketer, my prayer for you is that you may learn that your struggles and lack of success are, probably, not your fault! I pray that you may learn the "skills" you need to earn the income you want so that you may live the life you want! That is what we offer you at Mentoring For Free! Mentoring For Free is a one-of-a-kind lead-generation and training system exclusively designed to help people (and especially frustrated network marketers) to become more "skilled" as marketers! Mentoring For Free celebrated its 10th Anniversary on December 4, 2014. All of the "skills" training is FREE! You have to give us some of your time instead of your money. Because we know that your time is your most valuable asset, we promise to give you great value in exchange for your time! There are but 4 Steps to our proven system. Step 1 is the "Success In 10 Steps" e-book! I invite you to download and read this e-book to begin your completion of this 4-Step system.

Thank you and Best Wishes, Always! Steve Porter, Hannibal, Missouri, USA!
