Like Many People, jeff noel Loves Quotes, But Uses Them Sparingly

St Augustine, Florida lighthouse shadow, May 26, 2011. Our character is a directional beacon (or not).

Who doesn’t love quotes. But what jeff noel has discerned is eventually we ought to start saying what we believe, in our own words. It forces us to understand the quote even more. Here’s one worth sharing:

Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

My version of Emerson’s quote: When our children start looking for the face of God in the real world, they shouldn’t have to look farther than across the dinner table.

He Exclaimed, “You Have 9 Websites?”

Can anyone place this highly visible Walt Disney World landmark?

Yesterday I had the opportunity to have lunch with our 4th-grade son at school. Ashamed to admit this is a welcome privilege for any parent, any day.

What’s my excuse for not knowing?

Like any busy (parent) professional speaker, traveling for a living, managing time is challenging. Even primitive hunters long ago would be away from their children too often.

Anyway, everyone at school knows I work full-time at Disney World. Our son’s teacher even works there part-time. Not many know about the small-business entrepreneurial startup I founded 30 months ago.

So when I get there, our son’s friend exclaimed, “You have 9 websites?”

It was an unusual welcome. So smiling, and thinking for a moment, I said, “Um, I think there are 10. Five main blogs and five secondary blogs”.

Later that day, just to be sure, I counted to verify. Yep. Ten.

I don’t write about Disney or represent Disney in any way in my blogs, but it sure looks like I have the same creative and entrepreneurial spirit as Walt Disney.

Try many approaches, experiment. Work it, and work it hard.

My son says I’m famous.

I’ll take that.

The Blog Whisperer has his moments.

To Get Someone’s Attention…

Whisper

…..That’s right, whisper.

A college buddy’s wife (just) sent this. She launches High School Musicals, among the many other hats she wears as a Music Teacher. She was perusing my blogs and must have been reading about getting the first best-selling book done. Not sure if she knows Mark and I are ‘birds of a feather’.

“Don’t wait until everthing is just right, it will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what?! Get started now! With each step you take you will grow stronger and stronger. More and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” – Mark Victor Hansen.

Have a hunch, the quote means a lot to her. Putting on a High School Musical is a monumental task, with a huge audience ready to critique. But she’s never let that stop her.

Hi, I’m jeff noel, The Blog Whisperer, The Internet’s Only Five-a-Day Blogger, each morning whispering to the world, “Live, before you die”.

Dying Daily?

The largest portion of our life passes while we are doing ill, a goodly share while we are doing nothing, and the whole while we are doing that which is not to the purpose. What man can you show me who places any value on his time, who reckons the worth of each day, who understands that he is dying daily? For we are mistaken when we look forward to death; the major portion of death has already passed. Whatever years be behind us are in death’s hands. –Seneca

jeff noel Reveals Secret

Orlando based, world-class Keynote Speaker, jeff noel, reveals the secret that what most self-help books don’t stress.

You must have a purpose – a clear, concise and compelling vision. Something you are on fire for, and when achieved, will make the world a better place.

It’s a purpose so significant, it can make you cry just thinking about how much the world needs it.

jeff noel Ceates SEO

The most common way people give up their power is to believe they don’t have any.

Think you don’t have any power when it comes to SEO, influence, and changing things?

Then you’re right.

I, jeff noel, The Blog Whisperer and the Internet’s Only Five-a-Day Blogger, have learned that all the stuff those self books say is true.

And the most important thing you must believe is that YOU have power to change things.

What you don’t know is how to unleash that power. I do.

Maybe tomorrow. I don’t blog everyday at The Blog Whisperer because it’s not part of Mid Life Celebration, LLC’s original model of Life’s Big Choices.

jeff noel The Blog Whisperer

No, not the corn whisperer, The Blog Whisperer. Got it?

They say, the harder you work, the luckier you get. And a simple 100-day writer’s challenge to write in each of the five different blogs I created, is still going strong 23 months later.

As a ‘late-blooming’ father, 51 with a 10-year old, a few years back I categorized Life’s Big Choices into five key buckets, to simplify life and focus on the most important elements of each.

In a matter of days, the model was laid out:

  1. Mind
  2. Body
  3. Spirit
  4. Money (Career)
  5. HQ (the paperwork of life)

After the 2009 April Fool’s day inaugural posts, and upon completing 100 days, I just felt like continuing – in something like a ‘calling’.

And it has become my mission to write 5 daily, differently themed blogs every morning.

jeff noel, The Blog Whisperer, The Internet’s Only Five-a-Day Blogger, every morning whispering to the world, “Live, before you die”.

While there has been no commercial exploitation from this prolific blogging, jeff noel is also a world class Inspirational Professional Speaker, based in Orlando, Florida.

None of my Mid Life Celebration, LLC blogs are intended to be taken any other way than strictly a personal pursuit. Every last word I write as The Blog Whisperer is of my personal relationship with the mission work to be a great Father.
