A Quick Observation of the Low Class
We can all learn a valuable lesson about the types of behavior and attitudes to avoid like the plague, simply by observing the characteristics of people we all know are low class. Being low class is not a function of the lack of money or social status. I've seen rich people and those high on the social ladder who were very low class. I've also observed folks who were living below the poverty level and low on the social scale who were very high class people. It also has nothing to do with race or ethnic background. Instead, being low class is strictly a matter of behavior and attitudes.
Most of us exhibit some low class characteristics once in a while. We are all human and that's normal. However, those who exhibit more than half of these characteristics most of the time need to seriously re-examine their lives. They are in danger of becoming low class, if they aren't already.
We all know that low class people rarely achieve real success in life. Most successful people, on the other hand, possess qualities that are the complete opposite. Here are some characteristics of the low class to try on for size:
They have no desire to improve themselves, but they wouldn't mind having someone else come along and give them a boost.
They always stand ready to guard their rights, although they don't mind trampling on someone else's.
They blame others for their lack of success.
Nothing motivates them more than the prospect of easy money.
They have no problem with ill-gotten gain.
They've never heard a conspiracy theory they didn't believe.
They can't express themselves verbally without the use of profanity.
The more that's given to them, the more they complain about not having been given more.
They are waiting for their ship to come in.
Use of proper grammar is never a priority for them.
They spend more than five percent of their income on lottery tickets.
They've developed a sense of entitlement. They feel that the world owes them something. Therefore, they feel no need for gratitude.
They've made a habit of never paying their bills on time and are constantly dodging their creditors.
They won't do any more work than they absolutely have to. They see no dishonor in being a slacker. In fact, they take pride in their indolence.
They think they should be able to do whatever makes them feel good and whatever satisfies their urges, without any natural consequences.
They wink at immoral behavior.
The concepts of restraint, self discipline, and delayed gratification are foreign to them.
They've become experts at making excuses for themselves.
They live to have what they want and have it immediately.
They refuse to take personal responsibility for their own actions.
They constantly suspect others of ulterior motives.
They are always looking to cut corners and take short cuts.
They can't accept losses or setbacks gracefully.
They find The Jerry Springer Show more interesting than a presidential debate.
People can easily discern that they have an attitude just by observing the expression on their face.

One Last Month to Make it Count!
Can you believe it, summer is almost over. Did you get to accomplish everything you planned? Did life sneak up on you, such as unexpected bills, a loss of a job or did your situation change? Well, the busiest 2 months of summer are over, with literally weeks until school starts up again. There's a lot of juggling finances as you finish off your summer trips, buy school clothes and rush to the store to buy up all the school supplies you can get your hands on. For the kids the hustle and bustle has just begun, but for the single parent this is just a normal month. How often do we have a busy month like this and we don't think twice about it. It's a regular routine for us, we work, we buy, and we're broke. There's no "ifs", "ands" or "buts" about it. We work hard, play less and fall into an eternal cycle of Single Parenting. Half the time we don't know which end is up, just as long as those kids are fed, the bills are paid and we can get to work on time.

The Loneliness of Personal Growth
The cream rises to the top. That means that it separates itself from the milk. Perhaps that is what the New Age Movement is really all about. We tell ourselves that it's lonely at the top. Yes, it is. Maybe we have to figure out how to maintain ourselves as cream, but also stay whipped up within the milk? I'm picturing some sort of luscious desert all decadent and wonderful... like hot cocoa with the marshmallows stirred in rather than just floating on top. But then the marshmallow is no longer a unique wonderful treat, it's been broken down into the masses and lost it's integrity. It's a different lesson that comes into play after you've experienced a decent bit of enlightenment and growth.

2 Simple Ways To Cure Procrastination
Curing procrastination is not necessarily about will power or forcefully advancing in your goals but rather it is about learning why we procrastinate, what we are afraid of and finding ways to face those fears in order to move forward in our lives.
Overcoming the Fear of Getting Started
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. -- Dale Carnegie

Define Your Own Future - Shatter The Crystal Ball!
When I decided to look into remote viewing, I had the impression that it had some bizarre metaphysical and psychic associations. But, in reality, remote viewing is a natural and 'taught' method of probing remote locations in the past, present, and future. As I learned and experimented, one of the important things that I discovered is that you cannot accurately predict the future of any person or event. Of course, some would argue this point and I would probably agree that we can 'see' the future. But, what I mean is, the future changes far too rapidly based on our experiences and directions for anyone to be truly accurate.
How to Change Your Negative Reality
It is often taken for granted that the reality tomorrow will be the same as today.
Why You Dont Ned Motivation
As a life coach, I often hear people say they lack motivation ? in fact, the "motivation discussion" is almost a ritual with my new clients. You really want something, in fact you almost need it, but you just don't have the drive to get to it. As a result, you blame yourself; you get stuck in your disappointment, your guilt, or your frustration ? further and further away from your goal.
