TWO STATES IN THE MIDDLE OF AMERICA!
Illinois and Oklahoma:
Interesting Contrast. (Note – this was found in the public domain on line. I have not verified the statistics. If you find something that is incorrect, comment and I will fix it.)
PART 1 – Illinois
“A State with No Republicans Leading Government”!
Some interesting data on the ‘state’ of, the State of Illinois… There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Their average pay is $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?
In the last six months, 292 killed ( Murdered ) in Chicago .
221 killed in Iraq ; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
Here’s the Chicago chain of command :
President: Barack Hussein Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
The leadership in Illinois – all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago . .
Of course, they’re all blaming each other. .
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any! .
Let us get ALL the facts out while we are at it:
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to ‘fix’ Washington politics for us?
George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.
He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, by the way, also in prison.
And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned and, that’s right, he and his wife are both in prison.
The Land of Lincoln , where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates. What?
As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go bankrupt before the country does.
With all the bad news, there is hope, so let’s go to:
PART 2- Oklahoma
OKLAHOMA- may soon have plenty of new residents!
THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING,
Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election… look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!
An update from Oklahoma:
Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values… HB 1330
Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.
Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.
Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.
Recently Oklahoma passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal’s to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102.
Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.
Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining, Texas , Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once
again. HJR 1003
The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I’m sure that was a setback for the criminals The Liberals didn’t like it- –
Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.
Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English and only English and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma , you must read and write English. Really simple.
By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either.
Guess what… who cares… Oklahoma is doing it anyway.
Click Here Now for The Recording This is a Must Listen to call founded on a must read book. There is so much valuable insight in this brief interview you just have to listen. If you are not clear that you should spend the time to listen to this then at least consider these facts.
1. Wayne follows the guidance of Jewish population of Israel and before you say you are not Jewish note this guidance is what the Chinese are studying and the love to steal from the best.
2. There is clear guidance system here for everyone and that means if you follow the steps you cannot fail
So you might ask what about you Steve? Since you are a friend of Wayne how has his guidance helped you?
Great question. First Wayne sets the bar. Daily I am doing what Wayne details in his book. He is the example and the bar is high and I love that. What are the results for me following Wayne Well I can confirm I have adopted the relentless mindset. Get this mindset and it will serve you. Personally I am on path to creating a major business and that is coming off from a period that most would consider disaster. I am reinventing my life and what I really love about Wayne is that he adds more fuel to the fire.
For Your Success
The Success Formula
To experience what you want is a direct connect to how many people you help get what they want. Notice I did not write need. Of course this is not an original thought. Zig Ziglar is credited with this but I can assure it goes back thousands of years.
Here are some recent examples:
The Rolling Stones are on tour again now. Do you think they need more money? Do you think that maybe they get the most satisfaction from knowing they can get 10s of thousands of people going nuts just by them walking on stage. Do you think those guys would have lived this long with their lifestyle if they were not in total bliss with who they are and how much joy they bring people.
I am friends with several spiritual leaders. Two of them have moved on to more non religious ventures. I know quite a bit about each of them. I know that one was on national TV every week I know he was in demand on international stages. And I know that was very prosperous for him. The others and many others like them are just as good if not better. However they did not touch as many people.
Bob Burg in his book Go Givers addresses the income of a celebrity vs a teacher. The income is not about the value of what they do, it is about how many people you touch and not only reach them but give them what they want. Please get the point as I am not saying teachers are fairly or unfairly paid. I am saying teachers cannot be paid $10 million a year and rock star or movie star can be paid that much and more. Now you know why.
The Law of Reciprocity
I first learned this in the book The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Katherine Ponder. To this day this is the best book I ever read on being prosperous. In fact if I were to start again at the moment I studied this book I would not have looked for anything else. The prosperity formula is all there. I am intending to meet this woman before either one of us steps into the Universe from where we come. This Law of Reciprocity is simply what you send out comes back to you.
I Didn’t Know
I published my gift that I am about to share with you with a small paragraph on Facebook and LinkedIn this week Then I thought about being able to share it more including my email contacts and other social media sites. I decided to add The Gift to an article and this is what I am doing. However I never intended at the start to write all that I have written. I am mentioning this because my fingers are moving in response to inspirational thoughts. I thought when I started this article would be really short. I mention this because there is another illuminating point which is “pay attention to the messages you are intended to receive” I know I was intended to write more as I look back on this and now I say to you if you are reading this far you are intended to get this message and The Gift

Mentoring Is Part of The Lives of Every Successful Person
Without exception, every person I have ever met or listened to who is achieving success both financially and personally attributes their accomplishments to expanding their specialized knowledge, having one or more mentors and taking purposeful action.
Throughout my career, I have spent six figures on books, seminars, audio programs and coaching. I personally know a number of business owners and one leader in the political arena who tell me they have spent close to half a million dollars on mentoring and related training programs. Those kind of numbers are out of reach for most people.
Earlier this year, Strongbrook, a Utah based company that has its roots in turnkey real estate niche launched their Mentoring Division This is a result of Kris Krohn’s recognition of how important mentoring has been to his success as the founder of Strongbrook and with his family and friends. He decided to offer great programs at a very affordable price $99 a month. Currently there is more than $100,000 of content that has been loaded into the Mentoring Vault.
There Is A Mentoring Program For Just About Any Area of Professional and Personal Development
This article begins to highlight some or the material in the vault. Note: the programs being made available are expanding weekly and more am more influencers are uploading their best content to the vault IF you or someone you know has great material in written and audio/video format and wants to know more about being a contributor then please call me Steve Pohlit at 727-587-7871 I am happy to discuss the ease of getting started and the value for people making content contributions.
There Is One More Very Important Point Before I Give You A Peak Behind The Curtain
For every person who becomes a member of Strongbrook’s Mentoring Division for $99 a month, Strongbrook gifts a membership to a disadvantaged person. This is huge and is already beginning to make a difference in the lives of many people. Once you begin I will also help you see how this entire program can easily be FREE.
Peeling Back The Curtain of The Strongbrook Mentoring Vault
The following are some of the categories currently available in the Stongbrook Mentoring Vault
Sales and Marketing
Health and Nutrition
I will post more in Part 2 of this presentation which will come out in about a week
Here is a small sample of some of the mentoring programs
There are well over a 100 programs in the vault and growing fast. The quantity is only relevant for you to the extent you map out your own self-development program that helps you where you need it most. Otherwise you will be in the “shinny penny syndrome” where you chase the next new program to come out. You will not expand that way plus you will be unbalanced with your research and training vs implementing. I will help you when you Join Here

What is Success
It has been my experience in asking the question: what is success that there is as many variations as there are people. There is a fairly common thread however and that is “being able to do what I want when I want to.” This definition is doingness and is not beingness. This definition also means there is some dimension of time freedom and financial freedom.
Have you ever met people who have time and financial freedom and who are not happy and they do not consider themselves successful? Your answer is likely yes. Have you ever read stories of people who have won big money in the lottery or have earned big money maybe in professional sports, or some other very public profession and who are now destitute or broke? Of course you have. So do you think their monetary success brought them happiness?
Don’t misunderstand me. I think it is very difficult to be at a consistent level of peace and happiness if you are broke. There are many articles on this blog that are devoted to achieving your potential including monetary success.
So what is it. What is success?
Matt Furey published an article #1 Path To Success at his blog http://psycho-cybernetics.com/blog/ I like Matt’s work and recommend you visit that site and register for his updates and get the free report he promotes. Part of that article is “How often do you take a few moments during your day to think about all the things, all the people, all the circumstances you’ve had, are having – or will soon have – and how marvelous it is to be in your shoes – with or without the problems that go with it?” His point is “an attitude of gratitude”
Dan Lok presents this wonderful 14 minute message on gratitude along with a visualization exercise that is enormously powerful
For me in order to feel successful with any thing I achieve I must express gratitude in my heart and often to others. The more I do this the better I feel and you will too.
#Real Estate #Strongbrook #Loose Weight #Whole Food #Mentor #Coach
8 Years ago The Strongbrook Group began helping people build residual cash flow income and wealth by opening their highly successful real estate investment model. This began to create financial freedom for what has grown to be thousands of people. Event when the real estate market crashed, positive cash flow was maintained.
4 years ago, Kris Krohn, the founder of Strongbrook, wanted to address the group of people that wanted financial freedom and did not have the resources for a down payment or could not qualify an investment home. Investment real estate in their model is a single family home meeting very specific buying and rental income criteria. They solved this problem by creating the Entrepreneur Division that provides the opportunity for anyone to earn substantial income by promoting The Strongbrook Group business model.
The founder, Kris Krohn, and his leadership team attribute a great deal of their success to mentoring. Kris is very passionate about personal development. In January 2015 he launched the beta version of his dream which is the third division of Strongbrook. This is named The Conscious Creator Mentoring Network and follows the name of his book The Conscious Creator. The essence of the mentoring division is speakers, mentors, authors giveaway their best digital content to the mentoring division vault. This content becomes available to all member and Strongbrook gifts a membership to a disadvantaged person every time a new member joins.
Why The Perfect Business Model?
The business is founded on the mission of “Empowering Personal and Financial Success” and the business model delivers on achieving that mission. I cannot think of better example for improving an individual and in doing so improves society. Strongbrook just announced they are going global beginning in June. It will take them 24-36 months to reach 156 countries. They have the leadership in place and the track record to support my view they will achieve this expansion and at some point also achieve their goal of gifting 100 million mentoring memberships.
To Learn More
In my book Building Business Profits Fast I detail the importance of having a clearly defined goal that is measurable and has a very specific timeline for achievement. In an article posted on this site near the beginning of this year I presented the one element most often missing for success. Click Here for a refresher on that article That missing component is actually the theme of an entire book that I have been frequently mentioning which is Consious Creator by Kris Krohn. His book is the foundation of the newest division of The Strongbrook Group named The Consious Creator Mentoring Network which I joined as soon as I learned about it.
I consistently look for resources that will further expand my insight to goal achievement in all areas of my life. Very recently I published a report on a book by Bob Burg titled The Go-Gifter and how that is now further influencing my thinking and actions as I link The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success with the six laws of Conscious Creating in the book Conscious Creator.
All of these resources and more are influencing the clarity of my business and personal growth strategy for 2015. I am outlining that for you here with the omission of my business profits targets and non- business targets. As we near the end of the first quarter of 2015 I have already made adjustments to the measurable targets I set at the beginning of the year. At this point I am keeping those confidential except to share them with my mentors.
Primary Goal: Financial Independence – this means monthly income that comes in whether I am working or not exceeds my operating expenses plus reserves. Income whether I am working or not is called residual income and I have built a gradient scale for this residual income near term target that then increases from that point. My strategy to achieve that goal is to develop businesses that I am passionate about and that bring the most value to others considering my skill set. The following are the components of this strategy:
My focus is on acquiring distressed properties, renovating them and reselling them. This buy fix and flip model provides a desirable home for a retail buyer and enhances the neighborhood and community.
Health and Wellness:
The following are two companies I am excited about that I am looking to also be a source of residual income. At the very least I a will personally benefit tremendously from the products.
I am in the process of converting all the household and personal use products to totally healthy and environmentally save formulas. The company I have chosen is Melaleuca Their amazing product line is very affordable and they offer incredible incentives to learn about and use the products. Ask me how you can be paid $100 just for watching videos about the company and products.
Personal health and wellness transformation: I have done several of these programs in the past and now I am embarking on another one with the products of a company that uses no processed foods. That is a 10 day program with a 20 days continuity program following. I was offered a $50 gift card to try this program and the company offers a 100% guarantee for 60 days. I am now encouraging others to join me and will gift anyone interested a $50 gift card like I received. Click Here for details.
One of my favorite product line is healthy coffee and tea by Organo Gold. I enjoy coffee and tea and once I understood the powerful benefits of the Chinese herb Ganoderma Lucidem I changed from the brand I had been drinking for many years and now only use Organo Gold. Click Here for more information.
Personal Development is a high priority for me. As member of Strongbrook’s Mentoring Network, I already see tremendous resources being loaded into their vault .
I am using Send Out Cards for thank you cards, appreciation cards and of course holiday and special event cards I absolutely love Send Out Cards. I create my own using pictures I file when I see one I like or at times pictures I take myself along with a personalized message for the recipient.
I will continue to offer my professional services as a business development and real estate investment coach. The most economical way to benefit from my experience that includes successfully coaching hundreds of companies and entrepreneurs is to join one of more of the companies I am in that I have listed here.
I am continually looking at ways to improve the marketing and implementation systems related to my strategy. I am being advised my a major internet and direct marketing expert on how to jump start the business building components of my strategy. One of the five laws in The Go-Giver book is The Law of Compensation. Very simply the more people you serve the larger your income. Systems are needed to serve large numbers of people.
In conclusion for now – I have a financial independence plan that I am working. I am strongly advising you to have your own plan based on your passions then work the plan in order to realize your goals.
Your Success Is My Business
Last year I released the book Buiilding Business Profits Fast The intent of this book is to provide a blueprint for well building business profits fast It does that and now I am recommending that you get The Go-Giver book by Bob Burg and John David Mann and be sure to read, study and have a number of copies of one sheet printed with The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success you will learn from the book.
I really love the writing style of using a story to deliver very valuable lessons. I think Og Mandino was the first author I read using this approach. Others include Robin Sharma and most recently until last night Kris Krohn with his book Conscious Creator The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann arrived at my home yesterday and I began studying it last night. It Is short and very powerful. I would love to give you the laws it teaches but listing them for you would not be fair to the authors. Get the boo! Note: It is not a game changer because only you can change your game. This will guide you. What came to me this morning is how powerful the message is in this book when used on conjunction with the Six laws of conscious creating the book by Kris Krohn Kris tells me there are actually 7 and I will discover the 7th when I take the Conscious Creator Live program. That along with an rapidly expanding vault of information is the foundation of The Conscious Creating Mentoring Network – a division of The Strongbrook Group.
If you go to Amazon.com and bring up the book The Go-Getter you will have the opportunity to read the first chapter for no charge. Go ahead and do that buy while you are there buy the book. You will have no regrets.
Here is one example of a principle I knew but was delivered to me in the book in a way that I am likely not to forget: The Law of Compensation “Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.” You want more income. Serve more people. Look a popular movie starts, singers, high income network marketers – all serve a large number of people. That is one of five laws in the book and there is a great story surrounding each one which makes them easy to remember.
The Strongbrook Group has three divisions
3. Conscious Creator Mentoring Network (referred to as their personal development network and mentoring division)
The Conscious Creator Mentoring Network is best explained in this 4 minute video.
Attention: Speakers, Authors, Coaches, Influencers
