Changing Directions  

Sometimes we have to put our main dreams on hold so we can take a step back.  There may be an opportunity to be helpful and a segue from the original dream occurs.  I think it’s okay to get sidetracked if it’s a good thing you’re doing.  Some dreams are decades in the making where daily grinding and discipline are a must.  However, we need to know when to take a break, stay busy with something else or to relax if necessary.  I’ve been known to take detours at exactly the wrong time and I paid the price for every one of them.  What did I purchase?  Experience.  The lessons I’ve learned from each mistake have been priceless even if I’ve had to make the same mistake repeatedly until I finally reach submission.  It could feel like self-neglect, if your focus switches frames and onto helping others.  When the opportunity to teach something I’ve mastered—after countless failures of course—arises I take full advantage.  The most permanent way to learn something is to teach it.  In helping others we actually help ourselves with validation.

Pulling up not Pushing Down 

Teamwork makes the dream work and you’re only as strong as your weakest link right?  How does a nobody become a somebody?  I’ve come to realize that it’s the people and their energy that you surround yourself with, it’s the people you invite into the inner circle, if those people can unite with the same tenacity for the same cause, magnificent things can and will come to pass.  I hate even saying a nobody because we really are all one and nobody is better or less than.  If, in someone’s own mind, they consider themselves a nobody then that’s what they will convey to others.  The opportunity to create a great impression in someone else’s life is always there if we look at the positive of what we have to offer that guy who thinks he’s nobody.  Everybody is somebody.  I like to give the people who have been beaten themselves down to nothingness an opportunity to prove that they are not nothing.  They are valuable and just as valuable as me, you or Michael fucking Jordan.  Stars became stars because they followed another stars trail.  The world is our oyster.  Make a pearl out of your life if you so choose or otherwise die without contributing or giving anything to society.  The givers get more than the takers.  Takers can only take so much until the well runs dry.  Givers are constantly being refueled and given an abundance so they can give more to people who prove they want to be more.

Actions 

I forgot to add my #weeklywednesdayblog because I’ve been wrapped up in overdrive trying to get a major charity event all ironed out.  It’s a few days late but here it is nonetheless.

Actions 

It’s my actions that will either save me or kill me.  What information am I taking in?  There’s a lot of unimportant things being said throughout each day from multiple sources, that I don’t have to absorb.  It’s my choice as to what is going to influence my actions on any given day.  What can I do each day to improve my quality of life?  The options are endless and so it is with negative actions as well.  Am I going to decide in the morning to enhance someone’s day or am I going to decide how to destroy my own?  It may only be a split second decision but the choice is always ours and for us to demonstrate our free will, which is the greatest gift we’ve been given.  My free will determines if I fail or succeed.  I can say no to the right things and keep saying yes to the wrong things.  When something pops up out of nowhere, I have to use my intuition and say to myself, “Is this going to hurt me or help me?”  After practicing protecting myself from negativity for awhile it becomes second nature.  My time is not being used efficiently if I’m getting involved with gossip, drama or bull shit that doesn’t even matter.  Now is the time to take action in the right direction.  Now is the time to embrace and appreciate what I do have.  Now is the time to visualize and move toward what I would like to have.  I’ll never be perfect at it but I can be the change that I want to see.  It starts with an inspired idea and once that idea becomes an action, I’m headed in the right direction.

It ain’t just a party 

The Halloween Pong Fest is more than a party.  It’s an opportunity to make a difference, make an impact, on so many levels.  First of all, nothing like this has ever been thought of around these parts.  In a short time, myself, Alan Gregory and Clint Coulter have combined a Halloween celebration, an acoustic music concert, a mega 40 team beer pong competition (water in the tournament cups) and a charitable, honorable function at a venue who caters to veterans.  My team is dedicated to giving a small town like Goose Creek something to talk about for years to come.  Also, we take so much pride in helping with dog rescue (there’s just not enough people who care to solve the homeless dog situation), and we promote unity, peace and happiness among all human beings, then there’s the true appreciation and love for all veterans.  For this first of many functions hosted by Stellar Entertainment, we’re pulling out every trick in our bag, bringing the community together for an unforgettable night.  So far there are 6 companies pitching in to pull this off.  The American Legion Post 166, www.joegallagherjr.com, The Hit Masterz and Greig “OB” Session, 98 Rock of Charleston, Jan’s Jewelry and The Charleston Ketamine Center.  We have more sponsors lined up for even greater support that we will be announcing as soon as everything is confirmed.  Ultimately after everything is said and done, on behalf of everyone who makes a contribution, I, Joe Gallagher Jr. will be writing a sizable check to Eunoia Rescue.  My fiancé and I have fostered close to 30 dogs since moving to Charleston and those dogs showed unbelievable gratitude, this really means a lot to us so we do whatever we can to assist in this worthy cause.  #whosavedwho So please in your travels, talk about this celebration, spread the news and come try and win some money!  Or just donate and listen to some good music.  Either way, we hope October 26th is a day to remember.  PS just in case you get too drunk, we have a group of Uber and Lyft drivers fully aware of The Halloween Pong Fest and will be on standby ready to get everyone home safely.  Thanks again from the bottom our hearts.  We all feel like we have a definite purpose and that we are on the winning side of life.  The success of this fundraiser has the power to change many lives!l

Self Investors 

Investing in Yourself 

This may be a shocker to some people but after reading a ton of self-help books and listening to hours of motivational speeches, I found out that time is the most valuable possession.  I understand that people have to work to make a living but what about making a living by working on yourself?  If time was money how would you spend it?  There’s so many options that the hardest part is deciding on where to start.  Should I exercise, learn a trade or skill, read inspirational literature, study how to start a business?  These are all good suggestions and a beginning to personal growth and an increase in value can be achieved by any one of them.  I believe everyone has a fire burning within.  There’s something inside each of us that we were put on this earth to discover exactly what that passion is.  There’s a star in the night sky looking for you to meet it halfway.  Once you reach that personal star power, start using it and mastering your purpose.  Don’t wait.  The star won’t travel all the way to you if you’re not willing to drive in it’s direction.  The road map to success starts with some kind of guidance.  The old cliche, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear is as true as the sky is blue.  I implore you to seek guidance from someone who has mastered what it is you are supposed to master.  One last suggestion, every human needs to read “the four hour work week” by Timothy Ferriss then listen to Les Brown on YouTube.  You’ll find every answer if you just start looking.
