THE MIND OF RD REVILO

  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…

Sometimes You Gotta Put Your Head Down and Work Hard(er)

from Dream Big, Dream Often

Dream Big, Dream Often

I am a hard worker.  By this I mean that I develop a plan, analyze my progress, challenge myself daily and put the time in; basically I show up every day to succeed.  I know not everyone does this because I watch people’s actions.

Living in the world of sales and marketing affords me the opportunity to watch a lot of business people and compare and contrast.  Living in the world of sales also allows me to watch other sales people and compare and contrast what I do against what they do.  I have learned that if you aren’t doing it, then one of your competitors is doing it; so get busy!

Image result for how many everest attempt have been made

I see a lot of mediocre habits.  I watch people go through the motions every day.  I hear people talk as if they want to be the best, but then watch their actions say otherwise.

Hard work.

I’m…

Help me understand why I should now vote for you?

– why would African-Americans support a man and party that added voter suppression laws in several states after the Supreme Court said some features of the 1965 Voters a Rights Act were no longer needed, four of which were just overturned as unconstitutional?

As Donald Trump sinks further in the polls, he has suddenly discovered that maybe he should reach out to African-American and Latin-American voters. This is after a consistent campaign to demean the civil and economic rights of these same folks. Plus, he is building off years of his Republican Party’s efforts to do the same.

So, help me understand the following:

– why would any working class people rush to support Trump after he has said people are overpaid and does not support a federal minimum wage, much less an increased one?

– why would African-Americans support a man and party that added voter suppression laws in several states after the Supreme Court said some features of the 1965 Voters a Rights Act were no longer needed, four of which were just overturned as unconstitutional?

– why would Latin-American voters support a man and party who do not favor pathways…

Reasons Why You Should Be Careful of the Words You Speak

What words are you allowing to come from your mouth to manifest their reality in your life?

Dream Big, Dream Often

Have you ever given thought to the power your words have over your life?

A couple days ago I was on a sales call with a coworker to talk with a veterinarian about doing business with the newspaper.  She was there to speak about the benefits of print media and I was there to discuss how we could help them improve their online presence.

On the way back to the office we had a great conversation about the principle that people become the words they speak and the power of the mind.   In the past year she has lost significant weight which led me to ask her what brought about her wanting to change.  Her explanation was simple-she changed her mind.  She expressed to me how her physical body had come to represent how she perceived the world around her and how she perceived herself…mentally.  She…
