As you all know, I like to refer to information from various Mentors.

I have been subscribed to Tony Mases’ newsletter for almost 3 years now and always love the stories and content he provides. He is also a fan of Wallace Wattles like myself.
This is an article that I read two years ago for the first time and feel its message is timeless.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

A 10-Year-Old’s Marching Orders for the Upcoming School Year

============================================================

In my opinion, based on my own personal experience, kids
function best when they’re real clear about exactly what’s
expected of them in any given situation or under any
particular set of circumstances.

Every year since he first began school, in the day or two
prior to the beginning of each new school year, I’ve sat
down with my son, who’s now ten years old, to “lay down the
law”, so to speak, about exactly what I expected of him in
school and to issue him his “marching orders” for the
upcoming school year.

This year won’t be any exception. Although my expectations
for him haven’t changed over the last several years, with a
new school year about to begin, I’ve been thinking about
them again in preparation for our annual talk together and
thought I’d take a few moments to share them with you.

Here they are:

Expectation #1 – I expect him to behave himself and treat
others as he’d like to be treated.

The first and single, most important thing I expect of him
in school is to be polite, mind his manners, and treat
others as he’d like to be treated.

All three elements of this expectation are very closely
related and because he understands *why* they’re important,
he has no trouble whatsoever living up to them.

Here’s why…

One summer day, shortly before he started school, we were
driving somewhere (probably a toy store :-)), when,
seemingly out of nowhere, he asked me what I knew about this
“God thing”, as he phrased it.

As simply as I could put it, I shared with him my personal
belief…

Essentially…

That One is All and All is One. That one Intelligent
Substance manifests itself as what appears to be many
elements of the material world.

Simply put…

We’re all made from the same Stuff, a Thinking Stuff.

After I finished my simplified explanation of this concept,
he sat there quietly for a moment or two, staring out the
car window, then he looked at me and said…

“Daddy, that makes sense!”

And, with “ah-ha” written all over his face, he added…

“So that’s why you’re always telling me to love my neighbor
as myself and to treat other people the way I want to be
treated, because we’re all one, right Daddy?”

At age five…

He got it! 🙂

Expectation #2 – I expect him to do his best.

Unlike many, if not most, parents and teachers, I could care
less what his grades in school are…

Really!

You should see the look on people’s faces, especially his
teachers, when I tell them this. 🙂

So, what do I expect?

Simple…

I expect him to put everything he’s got into everything he
does and do the best work he can possibly do.

Throughout his writings, Wallace D. Wattles, best known for
his classic masterpiece “The Science of Getting Rich”,
repeatedly stresses the importance of doing all you can do
each day and doing each separate act in the most perfect
manner possible.

That’s *exactly* what I expect of him!

If, every single day, he does *all* he can do that day and
if, every single day, he does each separate thing he does in
school in the most *perfect* manner possible, with the
purpose of learning…

And that, in the opinion of his teachers and/or the school
system, earns him an “A”…

Great!

If it earns him a “B”…

Great!

If it earns him a “C”…

Great!

If it earns him a “D”…

Great!

If it earns him an “F”…

Great…

I really don’t care! 🙂

Why?

Because doing everything you can do each day and doing each
separate thing you do in the most perfect manner possible
with a purpose is the secret to success in anything and if
he just learns this one lesson and applies it, he’ll be
successful in life regardless of what his grades in school
are.

Expectation #3 – I expect him to have fun.

Life is meant to be fun, not a bore, and I expect him to
have fun in school.

Now…

Please understand…

I don’t expect him to be the “class clown” or a “wise guy”.

However…

I do expect him to look for ways to make his “work” fun.

If he learns how to make his “work” fun, he’ll never have to
“work” a day in his entire life.

Well…

There you have them…

My ten-year-old’s “marching orders” for the upcoming school
year.

In prior school years, because he’s been very clear about
exactly what I expected of him in school and because he’s
been very clear about exactly why I expected those things of
him, he’s never failed to live up to my expectations and
make me very proud of him…

I don’t expect this school year to be any different. 🙂

7 steps to a solid monthly internet income

There are literally thousands of ways to make money online.
One of the most solid business models to ensure a continual
monthly income is a subscription based membership website.

Members pay a monthly fee for access to a private member’s
area where they can access your information. You can provide
a variety of information in as many formats as you choose.
You can offer articles, reports, audios, videos,
teleseminars, downloads, software, almost anything you can
imagine.

Even if you offer a low cost membership, it only takes a
few members to make a comfortable income. A membership
website that charges $9.97 a month, only needs 300 members
to generate $3,000 every month.

And setting up a membership website has become remarkably
simple with advances in software that can be set up in a
couple hours, even by the average non-technical person.

It’s just that simple. In the beginning, it takes some time
and energy to put the whole project together, but then it’s
simply a matter of updating, maintaining and marketing. So
let’s look at the steps to put together a successful
membership website.

Step 1
Choose a market. This is critical. You should look for a
market you’re going to enjoy working in as well as a market
people spend money in. People spend money where they are
passionate. Markets like sports, pets, business, and hobbies
all make hot markets to launch a membership website

Step 2
Test the market. Visit forums and chat rooms and ask people
if they know of any good websites that offer up-to-date
information.

Step 3
Use your research from Step 2 to develop a rough outline of
what your website will offer your members

Step 4
Write a sales letter and have the graphics professionally
designed. If you can’t do this yourself, hire a freelancer
from elance.com or guru.com

Step 5
Set up the membership software to run the site.

Step 6
Populate the site with your content

Step 7
Market your site and let the cash flow begin.

7 simple steps and you’ve got a membership website that
will generate a solid monthly cash flow for you. Each step
takes some effort and energy, but you can have your first
membership website completely set up and running in less
than a month. Then you can repeat the process as many times
as you like to increase your membership portfolio and your
monthly income.
