Today has been a truly special day. I went out for the day to celebrate this blog, and my company Rego’s Life. Because as of today, this 52nd post, is an anniversary post – an anniversary marking one year to date, that I’ve been writing the Musings on RegosLife.com.
This whole week, is an anniversary week, really – for Quote Wednesdays, and For The Weekenders…but today is the most special day. Because 52 episodes ago is where it all started. Where I decided to gain the courage, and enthusiasm to write and express my thoughts not just to friends, or at small gatherings, not just during writing classes or publicly speaking – but with the entire world.
I’m proud to say I’ve consistently written a musing every week, without fail – and humble enough to say that all the inspiration, all the ideas, all the wording and expressions, were a gift from what I call Infinite Intelligence; Ruler of The Universe, Master of All Masters. A gift I chose to take heed to, and grab from the ether…but that’s not the only one I’d like to thank today.
I also have to wholeheartedly, 100%, genuinely, thank my readers and followers who have been with me all this time. You ladies and gents, from every stretch of the world, are what further inspire me every day to continue to take all the ideas, expressions, and thoughts given to me by Infinite Intelligence, and share them; unyielding and consistently. So thank you – and may I continue to write and deliver quality content for all of you to enjoy.
You’re all awesome, and I sincerely appreciate you.
This may sound a bit narcissistic, but what the hell….
Happy One Year RegosLife.com Anniversary to Me.
Well then, shall we? Let’s begin.
I wanted to talk specifically on something that was lightly touched on a couple of weeks ago, both on here and the official site. That something is desire.
For the better part of Friday morning and the entirety of Saturday, I was what one would call devouring the contents of a book I bought years ago – Think and Grow Rich: The Original Classic, by Napoleon Hill, The Unabridged Version.
The book was originally printed in 1937, but many, if not ALL of the principles taught in it still apply to modern day times. Though they have revised it since then, it’s the ORIGINAL version you want to get, as this is one book you don’t want any alterations of.
It helped me in university, and continues to help me today every time I go to pick it up, and read it again. There’s a chapter in the book Napoleon Hill advises all of his readers to read again once they’ve finished the entire book, and continue to read until they fully understand it in its entirety – Chapter 2: Desire.
Desire is something that’s looked quite oddly upon nowadays. Something frowned upon by some, and encouraged by others. If anyone saw the movie “Mad Money,” there’s a certain scene in it that was both funny, yet makes me cringe.
It’s when the main character who’s a housewife of a guy who lost his job is trying to convince one of her co-workers into “recycling” old money. The co-worker, Nina, makes a clear statement to which Bridget, the housewife, retorts :
Nina Brewster: I don’t want things I can’t have.
Bridget Cardigan: Do you live in America?
Reading Think and Grow Rich again it really puts that last line into perspective. The U.S. was built off of many factors, one of those being desire. Desire was one of the KEY factors, along with decision, definite purpose, faith, fearlessness, organized planning, imagination, persistence, and many other factors that gave the colonists of America freedom from the British.
The same goes for when Lincoln wanted to enforce the Proclamation of Emancipation, and when industrialist America was being built – thanks to capitalism, imagination, proper planning, and specialized knowledge. Without a desire to see change, progress, or any forward thinking movement, many countries would not be built to where they are today, nor have history worth mentioning in books.
Men like Abraham Lincoln, Samuel Adams, Gandhi, and even Napoleon Bonaparte were all fueled by desire and purpose, desire being something they never let die within themselves, through the strength of persistence. No matter how many times they may have encountered failure or met temporary defeat.
Desire can be a tool used to fulfill both good and bad things…but desire is something that every human being must continue to have in order to live the type of lives they want and accomplish the type of goals they have.
It was desire that gave me the strength to persevere in building up Rego’s Life, first starting with this Personal Blog, then the Official Site, and finally Rego’s Life Store.
It was desire to spread positivity, that gave me the determination to turn Rego’s Life Official Site into a place where knowledge and information could be sourced and utilized to the best and most positive ability for all who came across it.
It was the desire for the ability to keep all of that information free to the public, which prompted me to go all in, quit all things automotive and real estate related, assemble a team, and start Rego’s Life Store and it’s main branch RLS Web Creations™, so that I could fully dedicate my time to writing and sharing all the information you see on RegosLife.com, regoslife.eu, and things you don’t see that happen offline as well.
I’m happy to say I’ve found what I truly enjoy doing in life, which includes but isn’t limited to firstly RLS Web Creations™, providing the utmost quality service and products to all of our great clients (some of who are also readers, thank you), which also helps fund the official site….
Secondly, the Official Site, which I can freely share my life lessons and knowledge to make the path easier for those in search of success, be it financially, physically or health wise, spiritually, and through the power of thoughts…
….and thirdly this personal blog, that enables me to share with all of you my innermost thoughts (Episodic Musings), quotes I live by from truly inspirational people (Quote Wednesdays), and hobbies and interest I think the entire world should know about and try at least once (For The Weekenders).
Desire, faith, definite purpose, and many other positive thoughts and things are what have kept me going and ensured success my entire life – and it’s desire, and many more positive thoughts and things that are going to ensure success and keep me going for many more years to come.
I’ll be doing a follow up post on Desire in tomorrow’s “Make it Mondays” over at the Official Site, and share with you the 6 definite steps you need, along with desire and a few other principles in order to obtain what it is YOU want out of life, and manifest that desire into physical reality.
If you don’t have Think and Grow Rich: The Original Classic by Napoleon Hill, I highly recommend you get it today, and start reading at least a chapter a day.
I hope everyone’s had an awesome weekend, and once again I’d like to thank you all for being my readers and followers.
Improve Your Lifestyle. Improve Yourself. This is Life. This is Rego’s Life.™
