Are Americans still concerned with being pc? It's a valid question to ask in 2017.
Riots aren't pc. Peaceful protests are ... riots are not. Ever. It's not politically correct to destroy someone else's property. Nor is it pc to murder or to admit you have murderous tendencies - in most cases, that is.
From my observations, I've discerned we're only politically correct until the moment we feel we can't get what we want. Then ... all bets are off. I've never been a fan of pc nonsense and I seriously doubt I'd ever be accused of trying to be politically correct.
I subscribe to a policy of honor, integrity and speaking the truth in love. My messages aren't always popular because the truth sometimes hurts. But on the flip side, it also sets us free. Therein lies the reality of political correctness - when the truth hurts so badly that we don't want to receive it, be pc instead or risk public shunning.
We are a society of ever-decreasing morals which is the truth. But because that truth is uncomfortable, anyone who states that openly is called intolerant and worse. Political correctness is a lie. It's a facade. It's manipulation. Sugarcoating and denying the truth for popularity or bribery to gain something always leaves one party in a deficit.
I say if what we're doing and speaking isn't improving and adding to the lives that'll be affected, we have a responsibility to choose differently. I desire for the people I mentor and impact to be free to live their authentic selves and truly be who they are in every situation. I want them to be confident enough to speak their hearts without fear of rejection or retaliation. I'm working on that one client at a time.
I say political correctness is trash and I'm throwing it out with a bunch of other junk this year. Care to join me?
What you see above is a record of debt owed to me and payments made by my son. Earlier this year he wanted to make a large purchase that was outside of his current financial ability, and he approached me for credit.
We discussed it and I agreed that it was a worthwhile investment for him because the product relates to his income source and one of his dreams (future goals), and because it was a lesson on debt that I want him to internalize ASAP. You know, it's one thing for me to repeatedly say don't get into debt, and another, more powerful thing for him to experience it.
This isn't the first time he's experienced being indebted to me for a purchase, of course, and obviously owing me hasn't hit him hard enough just yet so I'm thankful the opportunity presented itself again while he's still under my charge. I was inspired to write this post today (6.29.2016) because he came to me and asked for money, and I happily replied, "I will not loan you anything else until your current debt is cleared." And let me tell ya ... he put in an hour's work to get back on track settling this debt because he doesn't want his bank to remain closed.
Folks have asked me about giving allowances and how I determine how much to pay him, and I'll share that with you in a future post later this month.
My most-popular mentoring session is The Financial Breakthrough. If you're in need of a money turnaround. Don't wait another minute. Schedule with me today to prepare for increase in your future.
We all have a warehouse of knowledge stored atop our shoulders. I know I sure do and I'm always filling it with more because I love to read, learn and grow. Some of the ways I get to share what I know is writing posts for this and my other blogs, speaking, teaching courses, mentoring and recording videos.
Another of my outlets for training others and sharing my wisdom is the Supernatural Success Mentee portal. I get to compose posts that are aimed toward success, business, breakthrough, deliverance and faith. Faith is important because it's a supernatural force that makes all things possible.
The Supernatural Success Mentee portal is a a wonderful option for anyone who wants focused mentoring but may not be able to afford a package at this time. It's also great for self-starters who need a little more than what's available for free.
Here's a snippet of a recent post:
"So many people need miracles. They need them in their personal lives, businesses, at school and in their careers. I know I do. Well, our brains can be trained to believe for and expect miracles, and it's very simple to do. Simple ... but not easy."
"Note words you use that get the most sales attention. Getting noticed is a great start, but conversion is always the end goal."
If you're ready to step up your success, join the portal today. If you need even more than that - you need someone to hold you accountable to your goals or to facilitate deliverance because you're stuck - book a package. This year is almost over, it would be foolish to continue spinning your wheels and not reach a new level.
