Thanksgiving Day – First Declared by The First President of The United States – Read What He Was Thankful For

The “Father of our Country,” George Washington, the first President of the United States, declared the first national Thanksgiving Day in his first year and first term of office, to be observed on the 26th of November, 1789:     Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor–

and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be–

That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks— for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–

For the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–

For the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–

For the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–

For the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions–

to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–

to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–

to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–

To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us–

and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789. Geo. Washington

(See GW Papers, UVA, National Archives, Text, History of Thanksgiving National Holiday)

Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving a National Holiday in 1863 and since then (with a brief interlude in 1939 when it was shifted to the 3rd Thursday), Thanksgiving has been observed on the 4th Thursday of every November.

Washington’s proclamation serves as a model and guide for every generation. These were his “prayer targets” and point for point, modified for our current circumstance, they can, and I believe should be used in our prayers, today.

This proclamation, in keeping with Washington’s private prayers published after his death, the Thanksgiving proclamations of the Continental Congresses, and Colonial Governors and legislatures for decades prior to the Founding, all mixed thanksgiving with humble prayers for the pardon of our personal and national transgressions.

Actions are Either Strong or Weak – Message from Neale Donald Walsch

Neale Donald Walsch I believe God wants you to knowI get a message from Neale nearly everyday. I read them all. I really like the ones where he ends with “And you know exactly why you received this message today.” Visit Neale Donald Walsch One of my favorite messengers and first famous with his Conversations With God books.

Be sure your register to the right so you never miss any of the outstanding material I publish! :)

On this day of your life,
Steve, I believe God wants you to know…

…that every action is either strong or weak,
and when every action is strong we are successful.

Wallace D. Wattles said that, and he was right. You know when
the action you take is strong, and you know when it is weak.
You can tell in your stomach. Endeavor to
take no weak action whatsoever. Run away from it.
Reject it. Go for the strong action, the strong choice, every time.

You know, by the way, what is meant by all of this.
You have been weak in some of your choices and decisions,
and you have been strong. You have been both in your life.
But no more, right? Only strong from now on, yes?

And you know exactly why you
received this message today.

Love,  Your Friend

Neale.

Thank you Neale

Thinking I Am A Victim Will Not Bring The Desired Results

thinking you are a victim

If you believe there are shortages of opportunities and wealth, then that is what you are going to experience. Do you think Google or Facebook thinks there are limits on building wealth? What about Apple and the turnaround story of Starbucks? Have you looked at what Koty Batemen has done with Send Out Cards? The people behind these success stories were not born into those successes.

I don’t know about you but nearly every week I see some story about people criticizing the Top 1%, promoting much higher minimum wage is the answer or how government should be doing more. All of that is the thinking of victims. There is nothing stopping nearly any of us from experiencing all of what we want.

I a previous article I presented my expanded success formula. In a nutshell we are well served by setting much bigger goals and taking massive action to achieve them. Click Here for that article that also includes my five steps to success formula.

It does not matter if you have studied the Law of Attraction, believe in it or not. Look at your own life and evaluate what you have experienced. Look at those times you were “on your game” and not.

Now and The Future Not The Past

Set GoalsThe one message that continues to resonate in my life from all the resources that guide me is this “I am responsible” With very few exceptions and there are some, nearly everyone is responsible for their own life. If you have a family, the responsibility that comes with being a parent or child is part of who your are.

What does “I Am Responsible” mean? It means you look at what you are capable of doing, continually expand and not look for others to carry you. It means not blaming the economy, government, or the circumstances you find yourself.

There is a formula for moving forward that is proven. Part of that formula is that we must focus on taking the right actions now with a view of how those actions contribute to the achievement of goals we want to accomplish. Focusing on the past whether that be one hour age or years ago is not a good use of our time and talent.

My results guaranteed coaching program is founded on this program. The only change I am not making is to become more aggressive with the goals I am setting and related actions required.

Here Is What I Stand For – And What About You?

8I Stand For Life Rights – The Right of All To Live Their Intentions In Freedom and Peace

I Stand For:

Freedom of speech and that does not mean I can swear in a public place where that would interrupt the right of those around me to live their intention to freedom and peace Life Rights meaning they do not want to hear what is coming out of my mouth. This also goes for dogs left outside to bark incessantly.

Freedom to write whatever I am thinking and if that topic is for adults only then I say it is for adults only and it is then the responsibility of the viewer to protect their right to live their intention of freedom and peace. Life Rights

Freedom to express my views on marriage, gays, drugs, alcohol, sex, abortion and have the right to live those views without any interference from anyone else including and especially the government.  Remember I above all stand for the right for all to live their intentions in freedom and peace. So if I drive drunk I am violating that principle. If I am alone in my home using harmful substances including food and drink that are not good for me, I am choosing to not honor my own health but I am not influencing anyone else.That is my right and nobody has the right to tell me otherwise. I have the right to not have my life changed by the views of others that are opposite of mine as I don’t intend nor have any interest in changing their views. If someone else is in my home who does not agree with me then I am violating their right. For the record I don’t use drugs – legal or otherwise.

I hold myself accountable for my decisions and actions.  I hold  the same especially for those in government.  I hold them accountable for upholding the principles on which they were elected.  In the US that is our constitution.  Right now there are many at the top that should be arrested.

My mission is to have a lot more people pay attention. The issues of the current administration are huge. Are those issues more significant than others preceding it ? I cannot say with certainty, but that is not the point. With deficit out of control, scandals, loss of leadership status, decline of the dollar, lack of international respect,  the failure of the educational system, unemployment, welfare and the list goes on, demonstrates the current system is not working. If you don’t stand for the basic tenants of our original constitution then go to a country more in alignment with what you stand for.

There are many personal and business principles I stand for . What is relevant here is I stand for authenticity. I stand for truth. I stand for the foundation principles of our country as written in the original constitution.

First AmendmentLadies and Gentlemen – we cannot go on our lives thinking all is well. We cannot think that the people in leadership positions will make it alright – it is not happening.  You may be opposed to wealth, Obamacare, homosexuality, drugs, alcohol, Mormons, Christians, Jews, Muslims and more. It is time to understand we can prosperously co-exist and respect different views, How do we do that? Respect the right of all to live their intentions in freedom and peace. (Note if a group you support promotes the literal destruction of other groups it is they who should be destroyed.)

Steps To Achieve This:

1. Do not preach your views to me. Write about them, Broadcast them on YouTube, Radio, TV any media you want. But do not get in my face with them, do not influence our schools with views that are political, raciest , sexist and anything other that fundamental knowledge. Fundamental knowledge means a return to basic education. It means to focus on teaching people to think and know the meaning of self esteem. It means not changing the base line of what is required to advance because some people are not able to achieve it . When a person is not able to advance academically find out what there talent is and help they achieve that. Want some examples look at the lives of Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dr. Ben Carson There are more.

2. Uphold the basic tenants of the United States Constitution as written by our founders.  When you don’t uphold those tenants, I stand for you as a legislator as a judge to no longer hold a position to which you were elected.  You will be ousted upon reasonable due course to not exceed 4 months. No elected official is entitled to benefits beyond the term they serve in office. Regarding terms, there will be a term limit not to exceed 8 years.

3. It is the responsibility of all governments in the US to operate with a balanced budget.

4. Scrap the IRS and adopt a personal consumption tax and a 10% profit tax on corporations with no tax exemptions. See point number 3

5. All public universities are free for those that qualify to stay with a passing grade. Part of the curriculum is the happiness formula and self worth that starts at the grade school level. One great example that I know of is the Delphi educational system. The more I learn about what they are doing the more I see the wisdom of that system.

6. The school system recognizes entrepreneurship as a valid career path and develops has a separate curriculum presented by people with a demonstrated success record in entrepreneurship.

7. Each person has a right to worship according to their chosen faith. They have the right to write about their views. talk about their views in the media. I do not accept anyone preaching to me without my permission. If your religion advocates abolishing another to advance your belief, it is you who will be abolished. This needs to be a worldwide goal as the abuses to others around the globe are outrageous and must stop.

8. If two people of the same sex decide they want to be married then our system needs to honor that and give them the legal rights of a married couple. Do I agree with their choice? I am not here to judge another. If they choose to pursue the adoption of a child, now we are in the arena of the right of all to live their intentions in freedom and peace. Is that child’s right violated? That is a valid topic for community debate.

8. A woman has the right over her own body.  If she is pregnant she loses that right within a short time of conception. To be defined but I am thinking 60 days with the exception if the pregnancy becomes a critical threat to her own life.

9. A person must be a legal citizen to vote and receive any type of benefits which should be very limited going forward. This means voter ID. This means you can work in this country but cannot send your children to our schools, be treated at our hospitals, vote, or receive any government assistance. If you think this is harsh, become a citizen. If you cannot become a citizen then live in a community of your peers and care for each other. During most of the history of the US we lived in a system where neighbors and communities took care of each other. Most of the benefits promised by our government need to be eliminated with people setting up neighborhood and community programs to take care of each other. Look how much money it frees up when regulation at federal and state level is eliminated.

10. Eliminate all laws that restrict people. To that point: elected officials should be measured on how many unnecessary laws they succeed in having removed. For example :

Reverse the law you must wear a seat belt or be fined. I will decide and if I don’t and hurt in a crash, my insurance company does not have to pay because I was not using the seat belt. I am in favor of seat belts but I am not in favor of laws like this.

Laws the tell private enterprise what to do. Consumers should demand accountability for the value of the product. If they don’t then they pay the consequences. If consumers accept genetically modified food, sugar, non nutrition foods with all the information available then let them. Don’t expect society to pay the health care bills.

Reverse the law of mandating restaurants bars and hotels as non- smoking. It is the choice of private enterprise.  You have a choice to go or not go. I would not go to a smoking friendly place but that is my choice.

(do you see how freedom has been eroded?)

Legalize drugs and regulate them like alcohol.  This is gradually happening with marijuana state by state but we must stop putting people in jail for using this product and no I don’t use it.

Legalize and regulate prostitution. This profession since the beginning of time should be a revenue generator not a use of tax dollars for enforcement. The regulation should be for clean places with health reports on the workers. Refer to the tax reform above.

That is a start. What do you stand for?

Why Did People Respond To Paul Revere’s Ride? – From The Confessions of An Economic Hitman

Paul Revere's RideWhat Was The Reason – The Real Why People Left All They Had To Fight?

Imagine for a moment, you are a trader – a person making a living for your family selling products that people of the time need and want. Maybe the products are tea, coffee, food items, candles, candle making products and so one. You have worked hard and continue to work hard. You have earned a good lifestyle for your family. Then one evening sitting around the home fireplace, very comfortable with your family near you hear a commotion – some yelling. You get your pistol and your rifle and head towards the door and listen. Nothing is immediately outside but you hear the commotion. You know it is time to do your part and help if needed. You put on your coat and hat and head outside.

In a flash it happens – the sound of a fast gallop and a loud voice. At first you don’t recognize what is being said. It is April 18, 1775 a night that will go down in history. You move toward the street and then you see then you hear the famous cry “the British Are Coming” In that instant your whole world changes. You would now risk your life, your business, your family to defend what you now stand for. The principles within you had been shaped by the words of Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson and others. In essence you knew the British Government was actually opposite the most efficient and humane way of helping most of the people. Their system enriched a few at the expense of many and you were not going to allow that to continue as long as you were alive and could fight.

John Perkins Story As Written In The Book : Confessions of An Economic Hitman Is Very Disturbing – What Is More Disturbing Is This Book Was Published In 2004 and Conditions Have Worsened.

The Ukraine Crisis Is An Example of Corporatocracy Failure. It Fails With Weak Leadership. Hello – Welcome To The US of A.

In about 225 pages John Perkins shares his life of being part of corporatocracy. What does that mean? I really recommend you begin your own research and start by reading Confessions of An Economic Hitman then Google it and you will find YouTube videos, articles and a lot of information for you to consider. What will this information confirm? The view can be summarized be restating the the sentence above from the time of Paul Revere: — In essence you will learn and understand the US Government was actually opposite the most efficient and humane way of helping most of the people. The system enriched a few at the expense of many.

Now am I and are you going to allow that to continue? If you answer no but then like me think what can I do about it—

Education Is The Start of What You Can Do About It Followed by Supporting Known Leadership Protecting the Original Intent of Our Constitution. The Following Is A Start:

1. Read the book “The Confessions of An Economic Hit Man”
2. Connect with the following people on Facebook, at their websites and other public forums: The Tea Party, Ted Cruz, Allen West, Rand Paul, Wayne Ally Root and others like them
3. Follow the new reported by One America News Network
4. Google Tea Party and Patriot organizations in your area and become active.
5. Know local, state and federal candidates running for election. Know incumbent track records and vote accordingly.
6. Be vocal on your social media sites, blogs and more Be clear on what you support.

Add your ideas to the comment section of this article.

Inspirational Music and Their Stories – This Includes The Top 2 Most Influential Performances For Me

I look to music and the amazing accomplishments of the seemingly most unlikely people. I am reminded that God is in every person. While the next person you meet may not bring the house down by their performance, they are a very important person. They are here and in every instance they are important to me and you and all.

I am reminded of the following performances that God’s graces are found everywhere. God’s love is found in everything we experience and while I can marvel at the ocean, a mountain, a bird , a flower…many times I ignore the miracle of a person right beside me in the grocery store or restaurant. These videos remind me to move past all judgments because while the person beside me may not be a performer for the thousands they are important for someone and they are part of the Universe where I am leaving my footprint.

The Two Experiences That Rocked My World Thank You God for All The People Featured Here, YouTube for making it possible for me to experience these performances.

Bill Medley Making A Difference

Bill Medley has a famous voice for many people. I love the music of the Righteous Brothers. I could not imagine having build the brand and having a long term ideal scene with my partner and having it come to instant halt with the news Bobby died in his sleep. Bobby Hatfield died on tour with Bill in 2003.

Take a look at this video: For me Bill focuses on the contribution, on making a difference, on being able to share the stage with his daughter. I am sure he was devastated by the loss of Bobby. He went on to perform many more great concerts and continues to perform. I am blessed to be able to say I watched him perform in Tampa and I know I will see him again in concert and meet him. This will happen soon.

Here is the point – Bill continues to move forward and make a difference. He didn’t stop when Bobby died – he moved forward. He entertains a lot of people. His voice and music helps people feel many emotions. He makes a difference. When I am no longer here my mission will have been accomplished if one and hopefully a lot more say Steve made a difference – a positive difference.

Much Love and Blessings

Early To Rise – Why I Subscribed – And It Is Not Because Early To Rise Is A Free Subscription

Note: This the email I received when I subscribed to Early To Rise (ETR)  Full disclosure : ETR did not ask me to publish  this and I receive no financial benefit for doing so.  This is an example of sharing with you material that helps me and is likely to help you.  In fact if  you are having difficulty thinking of the core values for your business…use the ones that come with this article and modify as you see fit.  S Pohlit

Mastering the Rockefeller Habits

What You’ll Get From Early to Rise Each Morning (The Core Values) 
by Craig Ballantyne It was a cold, wet, and Saturday morning in late April of 2009, and I was tucked snuggly into the corner of a hip coffee shop in the west end of Toronto. For over two hours I sat there, engrossed in a book, filling out the exercises, and charting a course that would forever change my business.
After being told over and over and over again to read, “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits“, I had finally pulled it from my shelf of mostly unread books, and walked two blocks down to a nearby coffee shop with pen and paper to do the work.But I was skeptical. Most business books, I’ve found, would be better off as five page magazine articles, rather than being drawn out into 250 page paperbacks through the use of redundant examples. But not so with the Rockefeller Habits. From that day forward it has been the number one business book on my list.
Verne Harnish, the author, had created more of a workbook than a typical ‘business book of the week’. From the planning of your meetings, to the one-page plan to your quarterly focus, Mastering the Rockefeller Habits was a literal blueprint for planning my business – in a simple, yet effective manner. The exercise that truly stuck out was the development of core values. Both Harnish and legendary business book author, Jim Collins, have repeatedly shown that the best businesses in almost every industry rely on some sort of core values to guide their mission and define their values.
I often tell budding business owners that with a properly crafted set of core values, a business hardly needs an employee handbook, as the correct decision in almost any given situation can be identified with a brief review of the company’s core values. And so on that grey spring morning, while the smell of roasted coffee baked into my sweatshirt, I labored over the six core values that would guide my Turbulence Training fitness business for the next decade on our mission to help one million people transform their bodies and their lives.

Little did I know that creating core values for my fitness business would bring me one step closer to achieving my biggest goal to date in business – that of running EarlytoRise.com. It was the consistent taking of actions like this one, and sharing what I learned from these actions, that allowed me to build my reputation to the point where I earned the right to take over ETR. Developing the core values for my fitness business also prepared me for the day when I would create the core values for Early to Rise, so that I could share them with you today. Matt Smith and I just finished putting these together for our team. Please note, however, they are not just for our employees and ourselves, but most of them also apply to ETR readers as well.

The ETR Core Values

#1 – Improve the Lives of Others

We teach valuable skills and foster the application of these skills so that our readers and employees can improve their lives. Never forget who we are trying to help and what we are trying to accomplish. It is all about helping our readers and clients transform their lives.

#2 – Encourage Self-Reliance and Personal Responsibility

While ETR teaches and preaches the need for and benefits of finding positive social support, networking with like-minded people, and attending educational seminars, at the end of the day it’s still your decision to follow through on all of this. It is up to YOU and you only.

#3 – Live by Example

An ETR team member exudes the principles of EarlytoRise.com at all times, especially when representing ETR. We rise early, manage our time and energy, and are dedicated to a life well lived. We are, of course, not “all work and no play”. Time is made for the finer things in life, enjoyed responsibly.

#4 – Concentrate on What Counts

We focus on what matters. Ignore the noise and concentrate on the big items that move the needle in your life towards your goals.

#5 – Deliver the Truth

We tell the truth and we expect others to tell the truth to us. The only way to build strong relationships among team members, with joint venture partners, and with our readers, is to always be truthful.

Print those out and keep those by your desk as you live by example the ETR way.
