    Do Jesus Of Do Me For Network Marketing Success?

    Twisted Crown

    Do I Do Jesus Or Do Me In This Life?

    When i joined 2AM Traffic as an affiliate, I was faced with the task of writing blog post every day. I would try to think about what could i write to encourage my fellow marketers and also be a resource to help them be successful in their business and also in their lives. I came across this picture and it just tore me up inside because as a born again Christian, if i had to renounce who i am to fit in the post modern turn or the present worlds view i would no doubt face criticism and hatred for what i believe. America would stop being America for me if i couldn't express another view point about success from another world.

    Had i allow a different view point allow be to twist my belief. Would i now settle for doing me inside of Jesus Christ? I must then in order to be authentic to others and my true self, not become something i am not for the sake of an "idol of this world"(money). I must not twist what i believe and life has prove to be true for any idol of this world.

    There are Christians dying in the Middle East as i write for what they believe in the same as I because they have decided to Do Jesus. Shall we renounce who we are ? Shall we deny our view points and hid in caves of fear hoping the world will help us be successful in online marketing? No...Christians are more then conquerors in all things. We were created in Jesus Christ for "good works" in the kingdom and in this world. Don't allow our feet to slip when we see the prosperity of the wicked.

    That is what almost happen to me. I started getting it twisted. I was getting it twisted by not mentioning Him(Lord Jesus Christ) to those who read this blog. Humans cannot direct their own paths. We were need created to be God. Many will suffer mental anguish because they can't make a few dollars more on a temporary journey. Resist the hype. Don't get it twisted by pretending to be something you're not. As for me, i will stand for the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ and not allow it to get twisted in my blog posts here at 2AM Traffic. By the way, Jesus already promised and abundant life on the spiritual side instead materialistic illusions.


    Can Faith Alone Bring Network Marketing Success?


    Can Faith Bring Prosperity?

    It appears since the Napoleon Hill's book, "Think And Grow Rich", faith has been one of the major attributes that a person must posses to have any chance for success in the network marketing business.. Faith has been used as justification why a person just can't get it done.

    I have been in "master mind" groups where faith is discussed in such a way that it is a commodity that opens the door to riches beyond the imagination. Some Gurus asked you to imagine the impossible but don't get crazy with it. Be reasonable. Don't look for making $10,000 a month, how about $4oo? That's realistic isn't?

    The word "faith" in the context of the Bible is totally different from what we see in the secular world. In the Bible the object of a person faith is God. It is based on the fact that what ever God promises He is able and unstopple to perform what He has promised. On the other hand, faith as define in the secular world suggest if you can conceive it, you can achieve it. This type of thinking has caused many people to loss tons of many and waste their time which is more valuable then the riches we are chasing.

    Biblical Faith Has God As It's Object

    What does the Bible say about faith. if you do some serious study about faith starting in Hebrews 11:1 which is the definition of faith, you will find that "Faith is the actual possession of things hoped for, the evidence and the existence of evidence and reality of things not seen". The Christian who has Biblical faith is hoping for something and possessing it because God is(He is Real) and God has promised it. Biblical faith only deals with truth and reality. It's knowing whats reality, experiencing reality and possessing reality.


    Secular Faith Has Man As It's Object

    Humans are limited in many ways as compared with the True and Living God. We are limited by time, space ,knowledge and power. We have no way to created something from nothing, we have no perfect plan. But we have an active, powerful, creative imagination.

    Ecclesiastes 7:29 (ASV)
    29 Behold, this only have I found: that God made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. It is theses inventions of our minds in which we devise plans. Faith based on the ingenuity and the practices of men do not always reap the benefits man promises. In baseball, a game invented by man, a super hitter bating 300 means that they have failed to get a hit, 7-10 times. We have been playing baseball a long time but we have perfected the swing. Just because we have a dream based on an imaginary system, a vision of our own making is not reality even though it "feels right". Empirical evidence will always have a degree of uncertainty. Even is all the numbers are right, you may still miss the mark and not achieve the prosperity you were hoping for that leads to settling for less.





    Can You Make It As A WAHM?

    How Do You Know If You Can Make As A WAHM?

    An increasing number of ladies are choosing to stay home but still seek an occupation. The old concept that women needed to decide to go to residence or away at the workplace no more uses. Yet if you presently work outside the residence, you could ponder if you can take the plunge and end up being a WAHM.

    Maybe you have been thinking about starting a business, or you have the creativity to start something new, but yet you just aren't sure that you can actually do it. How will you recognize when the time is right? There are a couple of points to take into consideration.

    Can you manage it?

    Initially, take into consideration money to start a business from home. Depending upon what company you intend working from home, it could take a while for you to generate enough cash to get started. Can you afford to live on your partner's earnings only during that time?

    Identify if you could manage your WAHM  by  creating a spending plan and figure out what your base living expenses  are for each month. Does one income cover that expense? Otherwise, do you have enough in cost savings to cover the difference to sustain your WAHM company for a  couple of months.

    If one salary isn't sufficient to cover the expenditures, do you have savings that you can pull from if necessary? Otherwise, think about working a few more months while saving as much as you can in your savings account.

    Before you take the plunge, additionally consider just what kinds of start-up expenses there wil for your business. Can you afford to make that investment? Keep in mind that some startup expenses are tax-deductible, however you still need to be able to make the  investments now.

    Can you handle it?

    Working at home is often harder that it could appears initially. While the dream of working at home can hold some love for you, the truth is that it's far tougher for most people then they think, especially when there are children in the home.

    So ask yourself if you will manage to fine the work  peaceful and successfully working at home. Think about the sort of work you'll be doing. If it requires phone work, think about the quiet time required in your home prior to saying yes to that job. If it calls for computer system time, do you own a computer system that you can make use of commonly for your job? Do you have an excellent location that you can claim as your work space?

    Once you have designated an area and plan what you're going to do, consider the family members arrangement. If you have very kids who aren't also in preschool yet, do you have plans for exactly how you will function around them? Do you have family members which can aid you or could you employ a sitter? If you have to work permanent and your kids are in college, exactly how will you manage your work time once they are home from college? Exactly how you fit in holidays, days off and summer holidays?

    Are you prepared to make change?

    Transitioning from being a mother who functions outside the the home of one who works at home can be hard. If you are going to be a stay-at-home mother, it can be tough on your family members, which must make the transition from viewing you as quite accessible to them to being available be appointment.

    Ask yourself these tough questions regarding your work  shift. Are you ready to working from residence? Can you manage the isolation? Do you assume you can be a work at home mom and still meet the  demands of your household? Most moms who decide to work at home consider what activities  their youngsters need for nuturing; if you nuture your kids using the television so you can function, you have not necessarily been successful in your objective.

    If you've been thinking of becoming a WAHM for time, you most likely don't have all the answers to these questions noe. As soon as you recognize that you're all set for these changes, the transition can be fairly basic since your self-confidence will help provide a succcess.

    How Do We See Christianity?

    Christians in Iraq Flee Homes Amid ISIS Terrorism
    On a dusty street corner in the Christian enclave of Bartilla, Iraq, Yousuf and his friends try to pretend that things are normal. They smoke, play dominoes ...

    This letter really hit me in the gut! I had to get a gut check on what my focus should be while here on planet earth. Since our time is an indefinite stay, priorities must be set with the right goals in mind. We had a meet up where we discuss goals. I wrote down some good stuff. But now i know that God wanted readjustment of my focus. Was the legacy that i had wanted for my love ones impact their lives in the present world and eternity itself. Our time is the most valuable unknown quantity we possess. God has graced us with an amount that only He knows. I hope in reading the following letter that you will rethink your "why" and focus on "the good part" of the life we now live.

    How Do You Define Christianity?

    July 29, 2014 by Brad Harrub

    Dear Friend,

    The name Samer Kamil Yacub probably does not mean much to 99.9% of Americans. But it should. He is believed to be the last Christian who left the Iraqi city of Mosul this week, after 2,000 years of Christianity in that town. Let that soak in for a moment. A place that has had Christians for 2,000 years now has none.

    Christians in Mosul have been forced to flee-while being beaten, robbed, and in many cases killed by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). This so-called "peaceful religion" has been telling Christians for several weeks now: "Convert or die." In America we rarely hear about the hundreds of Christians who are being killed by Muslims. After all, it would not be politically correct to shine a negative light on that religion. As the bumper stickers say, we should all just "co-exist." So, while our country argues over whether or not an NFL team can retain the name "Washington Redskins," Christians in Iraq have been going through persecution that most of us cannot even fathom.

    Imagine for a moment watching your church family torn apart—with members being killed for their beliefs. Imagine watching as some of your immediate family is sent away—and you aren’t quite sure where they have gone. At militant checkpoints in Mosul they order fleeing Christian women into trailers where Muslims take away their jewelry and add it to an ever-growing pile. They take their money and anything else of value they are carrying. It does not matter to them if you are crippled, sick, or have no place to go. The message is still the same: Convert or die. And so, rather than renouncing their faith, thousands of Christians have left Mosul and become refugees.

    On July 27th, 2014 Jonathan Krohn observed …the al Qaeda-inspired fighters who overran the city last month gave Christians an ultimatum. They could stay and pay a tax or convert to Islam—or be killed. Yacub, 70, was one of the few Christians remaining beyond last Saturday’s noon deadline. He may have even been the last to leave alive.

    "[A] fighter said, ‘I have orders to kill you now’," Yacub said just hours after the Sunni extremists tried to force their way into his home at 11 a.m. on Monday. "All of the people in my neighborhood were Muslim. They came to help me —about 20 people — at the door in front of my house. They tried to convince ISIS not to kill me."

    As I read those words I asked myself what would happen in America if we were forced to "convert or die." How strong is our faith? Sadly, I believe many weak Christians would convert rather than be put through major persecution. After all, not many people are willing to give up their $5 cup of coffee or sports/entertainment.

    In Iraq the choice of being a Christian means you will probably lose your house and all your belongings—and may, in fact, lose your life. In America we define a Christian as someone who attends a church for an hour, maybe wears a "Christian t-shirt," and doesn’t go watch the really bad movies. To Americans, persecution means that some politician didn’t vote the way we wanted him/her to—or a restaurant chain is singled out for their stand on traditional marriage.

    So what happens then when the real persecution comes? And it will. How many people will be willing to give up their affluence in order to retain their faith? I suspect on that day there will be a separation—wheat and chaff—with many current Christians deciding "its not worth it." To those I would ask, "Was it worth it to Christ to die for your sins?"

    Persecution of Christians in America is growing. Are we rearing our children to be strong enough to stand? Will they renounce their religion and convert when they are truly tested or will they "fight the good fight?" It’s time American Christians wake up and look around the world and see what is really going on. It’s time to be informed. Parents must realize that simply raising Christians is not enough. The next generation in America must be warriors. After all, it’s quite possible that during your child’s lifetime America will see a dramatic rise of Islam. Will your child be like Samer Kamil Yacub—and be the last Christian to walk out of your city or will they simply convert?
