I have been thinking about why we do what we do. Why do I blog? Have you ever asked that question of yourself? I have read other blogs for information and for business, but when I ask myself the question, I have yet to find the best I answer. I find that this is common with most people. Some people blog to vent, some to inform, some to be critical of others or of anything, and some to enlighten. I find that the posting of my opinion, isn’t any different than discussing any topic with anyone. My intentions are to inform or enlighten, The perspective is based on my values. This can lead to discussions with others that may have a different outlook. My hope is that the others will apply the same courtesy to me that I do to all that read and comment. This is only my opinion, it is like a buffet, take want you want and leave what you don’t. It is never personal. I respect of the opinions of others and I would hope that they would extend me the same respect. If they don’t, my answer is “that is their problem and they will get over it eventually.” To enlighten and stir thought. That is what is sometimes lacking in our culture today. Politician’s tend to forget why they were elected. They made a promise to their constituents to represent them in government. The lure of power sometimes corrupts them even when their intentions are honorable. The power and influence is not free, the price is turning from the individuals to the special interest groups, PAC’s, Unions, Big Corporations and other politicians. I would be remiss if I included every elected official in this group. I do know that some are true to their constituents. Today a different culture exists where a man’s word is no longer his worth. Now when a person makes a statement as if it is a fact than they back-peddle claiming they were misquoted or what they said is not what they meant… Go figure. Why did they say it then. Our culture has become reactionary and thoughtless rather that Proactive and thoughtful. If you agree “like” this Post, if you do not, respectfully give your thoughts and comments. Please think about “Why Do I Blog”.
I am a child of God. I may not be perfect, I have many faults, but who doesn't. I served in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman and am still proud of my country. I continued in the medical field when I was Honorably Discharged and have worked as a Nurse until I could no longer practice in 2010 due to health reasons. In 1987, I married my lovely wife Naomi and in 1997, God blessed us with a Son. Both are what I have tried to provide for and make sure that they have everything they need. I have done many other things in my life to make money on the side, but I never did learn the basic and most important steps of being a true Entrepreneur. I believe myself to be an Entrepreneur and know I have discovered the secret to success. It is not overnight and not a "get rich quick" deal. The truth is there is no "get rich quick". I have started on the path to true freedom, if this interest you come join me and we will travel the path to success together. View all posts by Mark
