Frank’s Blog : We Can’t Be Afraid Of Change

We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.

Frank’s Blog : Happy Father’s Day!

Yesterday was Father’s Day. And it’s wonderful to have a day to reflect on all things great Dads instill in their kid(s).

As the saying goes, being a father is easy because it only requires giving your genes; being a dad on the other hand requires sacrificing and being a person your kid(s) look up to instead of away from.

Kudos to all Dads out there!

Frank’s Blog : In Case You Need Someone To Say It.

It’s so hard to keep going when no one is rooting for you. In case you want someone to say it, here it is:

Keep going! It might work or it might not; and that’s why you do what you do every single day. The courage to say I’m going to do this, it might not work but I’m going to do it, and go about the business to make it happen. Keep making a ruckus!

Frank’s Blog : 3 Questions To Answer Before Committing To A Man.

There are three questions every woman should be able to answer yes to before they commit to a man. If you answer no to any of the three questions, run like hell.

Does he treat you with respect at all times? That’s the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you’ve found a good man.

H/T to Colleen Hoover for this. It’s in her novel called Slammed.

Frank’s Blog : It Is Far Better To Be Alone Than…

I just heard Dave on his Podcast/YouTube channel the Dave Ramsey show, speak on the influence the people we hang around with have on us.

He said: you will be like your 5 to 10 closest friends, the ones you spend enough time with to influence your thinking. You will make about the same money. If they are successful, you will be. If they go to church, you will. If they read the bible, you will. If they are weed heads, you will be. If they believe everything has to be given to them, you will. If they believe they can’t get ahead in life, you will. If they vote the wrong way, you will.

If you hang around with people who are successful, they will start challenging/changing your thinking pattern from seeing things you can’t do to how you can do them, you will start to see all the opportunities around you because that’s all your friends think and talk about. That’s why you don’t let your kids run around with little Jony, a weed head. Because they will be weed heads too.

This is not to say don’t talk to people or be mean to people. I believe you can learn something from anyone. Anyone can teach something no matter who they are. I love having conversations with people, talking to them, listening to their stories, how they defend their wrong ideas, how they vote the wrong way, yet I’m still friends with them.

I’m talking about the kind of friends that are in your close circle. The ones that will carry your casket, those are the ones. Because you actually spend enough time with them, to be influenced by them.

It is far better to be alone than to be in bad company. ~ George Washington
