Success Comes with Rising Above Your Current Circumstance and Going Beyond That. -Jim Rhon. Paraphrased by Paulette Motzko

When was the last time in your life that you went beyond what you ever thought you could do in life and surprised even yourself?

How good you feel when you did that?

What things have you done recently that showed that you can do anything in this world if you only put your mind to it.

Written by Paulette L Motzko

Watch “Productivity Tips – 5 Ways to be more PRODUCTIVE – #BelieveLife” on YouTube

Tim Ferris’ advice was absolutely hands down the most useful of the whole bunch to me.

It’s not a contest in life. You’re not competing with anybody but yourself. As we get older we know ourselves and what makes us work the best, and I know with me, going to be a senior on my next birthday in August, I have learned a lot of things about what makes me work at my optimum. I also avoid what I know doesn’t work in my life.

What I do is not going to work for everybody. I know what works for you is not going to work for somebody else, but that’s okay.

That’s what makes us all different in life.

I watched a YouTube video from TheAndroidGuy recently and learned a whole bunch of things about my Galaxy Note 4 Phablet- that I’m talking on right now- using vocal recognition software and it’s typing this document for me. I learned that the Galaxy Note 4 has a whole bunch of things that it does that I didn’t even know and I’ve had that thing for about a year. I got rid of my computer because I don’t even need it really anymore and I got tired of lugging it around when I could do what I did with MS Office installed on my phablet!

I used to type eighty words a minute to create documents, and now I do editing mostly, after the Galaxy Note 4 types it for me as I speak.

I still create and I do the same things I did before, but it’s just done faster and better and easier thanks to new technology.

I don’t have to carry around a monolith of computers and a big bag like I used to before too.

It’s extraordinary what technology has done. But what we want to make sure that we don’t become cyborgs, miniature robots that can communicate with anybody else because we’ve forgotten how.

I liked it when Mr. Ferris in Evan Carmichael’s video on productivity was saying to just unplug your blackberry and plug yourself to the world so you can live.

I mean I’m old enough to know when there wasn’t there were no cell phones. What the hell did we do then? You know we did?

We simply lived in the moment and weren’t looking for the next status message, and we’re more worried about what we were leaving this world and what we personally were doing than what everyone else was doing.

We called on pay phones if you needed to make a phone call.
I did it when I went to college.

If you’re so busy all the time repurposing other people’s material and just sharing tweets on Twitter you’re not creating anything new. You want to create new things in this world.

What we optimally want to do is contribute something of value to mankind. In order to do that you need to sit and block out everything else and just do a simple thing called think. Use your mind. That thing called thinking is not used enough as it should be in this world today.

Without people there’s nothing.

There’s are no computers, there’s no internet, it doesn’t matter if you have a Blackberry, Blueberry or Strawberry for without the existence of people there’s no one to talk to.

People should always come first and I try to give people respect, look at them in the eye and treat them as I would want to be treated if I were asking the same question or saying the same thing.

Sometimes that requires patience to do, but it’s worth it.

If you go around with a headset on your head talking to yourself, how can you ever hear the people?

How can ever hear birds chirp?

How can you ever really experience life if you’re always wired to something?

That’s redundant question because the answer to all those questions is -you can’t really live and your blood pressure is much higher.

Evan Carmichael did a fantastic job again. I hope to communicate with him one-on-one someday.

Paulette Motzko and PLM Studios Made History on Zenfolio

http://paulettemotzko.zenfolio.com/f1001429007

I created the beginning of the PLM Studios website portfolio where my digital photography- spanning ten years will be sold. Finally people will be able to buy prints and art that is fitting for a frame from the photos that I took so long to create.

Eventually more photos will be added, day-by-day.

This is a good beginning though and I’m so happy that I discovered this website through a new follower of mine who loved my photographs that I’ve been putting up. I checked her website out and as it turns out she was on Zenfolio. This is exactly the kind of sight I’ve been looking for.

More to come as this is the beginning of extraordinary things to come.

It’s 1230 midnight and I’ve been up since 6 this morning tomorrow’s another day.

On Easter Sunday dressed up to go out with an Italian gut who was a deadbeat because he stood me up….so I took myself instead,  and had a great time.
I don’t thin there’s a guy you could describe as

1 Kind
2 Intelligent
3 Gentleman
4 Can hold a conversation and knows how to treat a lady

I know there has got to be a single one in Las Vegas, NV, I just haven’t met one yet.

For whatever it worth, envision me with someone like that
With nearly 3000 of you my followers picturing me with someone truly wonderful. …it will happen.

“5 Ways to Improve your COMMUNICATION Skills – #BelieveLife” on YouTube with Commentary by Paulette L Motzko, Totally Inspired Mind

What an awesome 25 minute video from the Believe channel by Evan Carmichael.

The first presenter speaks of the key points of communication and he uses an acronym “HAIL” which stands for Honesty, Authenticity , Integrity and Love.

Very well done! Those are huge things I value in life. ALL THE PEOPLE I ASSOCIATE WITH MUST possess those qualities. That is a prerequisite with me.
If they do not, I simply don’t associate with them.

Life is too short to hang with crows or buzzards when you can soar with the eagles instead.

After YOU ARE 18 years old, you have the right to choose who you associate with.

If your family member is malicious or doesn’t have your best interest in mind, or is just psychologically messed up and causes havoc in your life– you simply don’t need to be around them.

I have a few family members like that. You can’t exchange family members like a bad poker hand, but you can simply walk away from the game and let them play by themselves.

When I was about 6 years old I remember mom saying ” who you are around is what you become.”
So, when looked at things in that context, becomes very easy to weed people out of your life and be more selective.

For instance, when I used to do gardening in my last house in Orange before my divorce, I remember putting this stuff called Preen my flower box with the geraniums, gladiolus, daffodils and Lily of the Nile. It helped to prevent weeds. Yes prevent them. It made it so I didn’t have to sit there breaking my back tending the soil the next day. Even though the stuff cost a fair amount of money, all I had to do was put it on once a month and it saved me work.

Bad people are like weeds and they can infiltrate your life with snuggled edges, and pollute your mind with bad thoughts, colorful language that you really shouldn’t be using, because when you’re around someone that does something over and over again it tends to rub off on you.

If you set high standards in your life and associate with flowers who help you bloom too, the garden called your life will always bloom.

If you compare bad people to weeds- people who possess the opposite of the qualities outlined in the acronym HAIL, it becomes very easy to not let them take over your pretty flower garden… otherwise known as your world. Your life, like a flower garden, blooms in direct proportion to what you plant.

Let every one of the people in your life bloom on their own. People who share a common denometer with you, naturally help you bloom to the most of your ability…because they are blooming themselves and are happy with where they are in life. Conversely, people who aren’t happy in life, and who only bring negative things to the forefront, are people who will usually try to drag you down to their low existence.

Don’t let them do it.

The most important things to me are honesty, integrity, tactfulness, of course- because you don’t just want to say anything that comes to your mind in the sake of being honest to somebody.

All these things put together build your reputation. Your reputation is what you’re going to leave when you’re not here anymore and that’s what people will remember most about you.

It’s not how many cars you have in the driveway, it’s not how fancy your Gucci bag is, but simply how you treat other people and how you made them feel when they were around you.

Those things form who you become in life and who people know you to be.

That really is what matters to me in life. I hope you enjoy this YouTube video I’ve got to find out how to reach Evan Carmichael that does all of these extraordinary “Believe” YouTube videos because they are the best I’ve ever seen.

You have my Paulette Le Pore Motzko Seal of Approval on that Mr Evan Carmichael.

I’ve would love to meet Evan Carmichael one day and congratulate him on an outstanding collection of YouTube videos.

I don’t know how he does it but the finish product is pretty extraordinary.

With my blog Totally Inspired Mind I wanted to contribute something extraordinary and put it out of the universe and then get other like-minded people to join it. It started with a vision and then it became reality in a few hours when I created the blog in a hotel room. Now five years later about a hundred countries read this and now I am going to monetizing it. Currently my payment is sharing what I feel us quality content that is remembered and shared.
I aspire to communicate using the HAIL principles outlined in this YouTube video of honesty, authenticity, integrity and love always.

Hyacinth Bowl {Styled X3} – Not JUST A Housewife

http://www.notjustahousewife.net/2016/04/hyacinth-bowl-styled-x3.html

Add breath of spring time with Stacy Rison maze wonderful Hyacinth Bowl. It reminds me when I planted bulbs up my friend blonde and the beautiful flower box. And went see something green in my place so much and it’s one of those things that if you’re on a limited income you never have time or money for things you can live without like flowers or potting soil or any of the wonderful growing things in a garden. Most anyone can put this wonderful gladiolus pot together and showcase it on your table, giving it up pretty elegant look.

Google Talk The Global Translation Chat App & & Paulette Motzko’s Thrill of Discovery

I learn many things new through the course of my day everyday. I have always had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, even since I was a small child at 4 years old, learning to read, and then learning phonetics. I learned the meanings of the prefixes and suffixes when I was 6 years old.
I learned the value of a book and the extraordinary concepts within each cover, and libraries became one of my favorite places, and still are.

image

Hot off the press I just created this image to go with this story from a photo I took in Vista, CA about three years ago now.

Photography & Digital Arts by Paulette Motzko

There was never a dumb question around our house and every night around the kitchen table, before we would eat dinner we would bless the food, thank God for everything we had, and look at each other and thank God we had each other. How I wish it was that way today. But people change and so you change with it.

My dad would ask everyone what we learned that day. He would go one by one, and ask each one of us who’s the most extraordinary thing we learned that day. If we didn’t learn anything he would say “go pick up a book” or “how are you doing in school” and things like that.

Every night at dinner time we would sit around our table and we would share what we had learned that day.

Yes, how I wish life was like a projector that you could go back in time and make my siblings remember when they had a heart and soul, but that’s not how life works. Change is the only thing we can count on and those who adapt the best do the best.

Yes, we sat around with a painted picnic table that was painted by my mother and communicated with each other, laughed, my brothers told jokes, and we were there in the moment.

Our family couldn’t afford a kitchen table like the kind they sold in a furniture store, but being the industrious people that the Le Pores are, my dad bought a picnic table that my mother painted white.

As always mom had this way of creating something out of nothing, and when she was done, the table was painted and varnished and had a really pretty flower arrangement on the top of it.

She then bought some yellow gingham sheets that she found on sale, and transformed them into beautiful drapes for our huge kitchen windows.

25 years later, after my parents sold that first house they bought for a mere $20,000 and sold it for $100,000 years later, those drapes are still there. People did not want to take them down and loved them and bragged about how beautiful they were. It was my secret, that they’ll never know they were made out of sheets.

These remain to this day some of the most Stellar memories I have of my childhood.

My Nanny always told us a family who prays together stays together. It’s something she swore by. It was imprinted on the Rosary she prayed on everyday that glowed in the dark. Her words to this day have lit some of my darkest days much like her rosary beads glowed up in the dark as she prayed Hail Marys.

image

We prayed together then and stood by each other. It’s just too bad, my older siblings sold their integrity getting the profits of my parent’s huge duplex, after my dad’s death. My brother in law was like Hitler as power of attorney and and my siblings fell for his half cocked, uncompassionate and unfair treatment of both myself and my mother with Alzheimer’s disease. I was the only one who looked out for her it seemed and spoke for her with a voice she no longer possessed.

image

We could see each other, side by side, and when my dad made money selling major appliances and the table went outside…we sat farther apart. Then the house began to be filled with state of the art TV’s and a huge stereo. The television was on more and we talked less.

I saw this big solid maple, fancy kitchen table being delivered with big clunky, heavy chairs I couldn’t lift, and we sat apart from each other. I liked the picnic table better.

image

Necessity creates innovation and ingenuity. Some of the kindest people I’ve ever met in my life are some of the poorest. They know how to do it, that they know how to be industrious, and they know as I’ve learned, to do without and make do with what they had.
They have more compassion for others in the same situation.

Back to reading and knowledge..

Mom read it to me everyday, and my sister bought me Golden Books that I read, each one of them looking at the pictures and being immersed in the stories, sounding out the words.

If I didn’t know what the words were, we all played a game where I would figure out what the word meant by taking the prefixes and saying what it meant. Most of time I would get it right with a little fine-tuning. That would add to my vocabulary everyday.

When I knew how easy it was and the extraordinary potential that a person would possess if they could read, assimilate and have the command of the English language, the world was my Pearl.

Like Helen Keller having Anne Sullivan spelling out the word
w-a-t-e-r in her hand in sign language, she knew everything had a meaning.

Mom was my Anne Sullivan, especially as an unpopular kid recently diagnosed at 9 with epilepsy. There was no such word as bullying in school; kids just did it and nobody cared or did anything. Apathy to the max in the school systems.

9 WAS A PIVOTAL AGE FOR ME. LIFE DEALT ME ONE CURSE EPILEPSY BUT IT ALSO BROUGHT A PIANO IN THE HOUSE AND MUSIC, THEN MY LOVE OF COOKING EMERGED AND WRITING WAS SOON TO FOLLOW. IF GOD WAS A CARD DEALER THE DECK WAS STACKED IN MY FAVOR AT A VERY YOUNG AGE.
I just took until I’m almost 55 just see it that way.

image

Paulette Anne Le Pore at 9 playing a song I composed called “My Melody” after mom showed me 4 chords and Nanny explained how the pedals worked……

In 3rd grade at Show and Tell I Showed and demonstrated to my class what the piano did by playing all the songs I wrote. Bringing in bullfrog were boring to me!

Every thing ever built or ever created has a name. The more we understand what those things are the more we can understand our place in the world. Also, the more languages that we speak the more than we can understand others and their cultures and find a common denominator within the two.

As in most days I don’t quite ever know what I’m writing but I never worry about it; I just write.

People who put on the editors cap and are over critical too early in the creative process or worry about what other people think of what they do– never do anything because the creative process is squelched.

Create because you think it has merit, or you think it’s beautiful. It doesn’t matter that the world doesn’t think it’s beautiful or does think its extraordinary. Create it because you feel your artwork is in the very essence of your soul waiting to escape like a butterfly in a meadow and you want to share the reverie with others…and the people in the world are the flowers in the field.

image

image

you know it is that’s why are you think I can help somebody or you feel it’s good. And once you create something you throw it out in the universe and you hope it touches the lives of people and inspires them or shows them a new way. When it does then it’s extraordinary because then it’s a triple win. It’s the people whose viewpoint on what you do make what you write and every word you hand chisel come alive.

When I was a small child I held a book in my hand with a feeling as though I had the whole world in the palm of my hand. I also knew there was so much more available to me and I was just touching a small microcosmic particle of the knowledge available in the World.

Now have a century later, with me at 54 years young, I hold my Galaxy Note 4 phablet with over 100 apps on it, ebooks, over 5,000 high definition photos, and programs I used to have on a clunky big computer that I recently sold. I installed Microsoft Office and MS Word, allowing me to create documents with vocal recognition software for the first time in my life.

You’re talking about a person who types eighty words a minute but can now type with this new technology. My phablet types for me and I edit. History breaking stuff. Pretty cool, huh?

Thanks to engineers, and IT specialist and computer scientists who created the internet systems with satellites in the sky like my ex-husband the rocket scientist help put up with Boeing, we can do things that we never ever thought possible.

I’m old enough and I’ve seen both sides and it is all pretty extraordinary.

I have had this Google Talk app on my phone for better part of a year and I didn’t know that it was a translating device that I could talk to people in their native language in any part of the world for free.

Now that’s a huge piece of info because I have over 800 friends on Facebook and many of them were in Italy, Thailand and the Philippines and Africa. I can learn their language by using it and that’s what’s so extraordinary about it. It comes in handy for business as well.

I can learn figures of speech in in their language, adding color to my writing. This matters to me. I have some baker friends who are artisan bakers in France and I would love to know and understand more of the French language and the pronunciation of how the words sound. Google Talk helps with that.

I hope that this article made you look at the world little differently. If it did, that makes me really happy and that is the coolest thing in the world.

When you change someone’s mind or you Enlighten them to a new fact that they didn’t know,
You’re in essence opening a magic door to new horizons that were unexplored before. I hope you can use some of this in your life, that you find new ways of thinking brings subtle changes in your life.

Maybe it’s raining in your life with problems now, or maybe it’s literally raining like it is here in Las Vegas, NV.

No matter what, figurative or literal, the sun’s rays will be awaiting you on the other side of the storm.

Know you are never alone and as you journey through life God is walking by your side like your Mighty Partner.

The storm clouds will eventually lift and the sun will peer through the clouds again.

The planet hunter searching for another Earth- Commentary by Paulette Motzko

The planet hunter searching for another Earth
http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/11/tech/sara-seager-life-on-exoplanets/index.html

On Earth Day 2016 I will say…

Let’s take care of the one planet we have and conserve all of its natural resources.

Leave the animals alone and help them flourish…

Keep the trash out of the water systems and garbage because if our water systems are one day polluted beyond water treatment plants we will die.

…. and that’s a fact.

We are composed of mostly water just like the Earth.

We have a lot in common with planet earth.

I hope one day we all wake up to this realization so we don’t have to see the godforsaken pictures of trash in the Water Systems and every other thing we see.

How old do you FEEL now?

How does your chronological age differ from the way you feel?

The only thing that matters in life that’s how you feel, your attitude towards living, how involved you are with your interests your goals and things like that that’s what keeps you young and a passion for living.

I am so happy to know the rain is tapering off in Houston, Texas!

My dear friends like Brittan Ellen Moore and her family can rest easy as the city deals with the flooding there.

Thank God!

According to Google the weather is partly cloudy and isn’t raining now in Houston, Texas at 6:09 p.m. Las Vegas Nevada time.

I put this up on Facebook this morning and shared it with the almost 900 people I am friends with there, after seeing Brittany-Moore share it.
I don’t know who created the image but nonetheless it’s awesome.
I think our prayers were heard too.
My prayers won’t end and my actions to help raise money for the people who were flooded from their homes.
