Goal(s) for June 2009

Hi everyone,

Last month I shared some of my May goals in the (MC) community and also here with my blog readers/followers. This month I'll share some of my June goals with you.

1) First and foremost, to KEEP giving God the glory and the honor and the praise daily, not just in MC but in all my daily activities both online and offline.

2) Secondly, to KEEP praying daily for my family, my friends, world leaders, church leaders, spiritual leaders, business leaders, etc (basically anyone who needs prayers which basically means everyone.)

3) Thirdly, to KEEP writing/posting stories. Over the past few weeks I have dropped off with this goal in particular but I think I can maintain writing/posting at least 1 story (whether christian/non-christian/fanfiction) a week each week.

There are a few more goals that I posted in MC. I just wanted to share a few of my goals for June 2009 with my blog readers/followers. What I try to do is update my progress daily or weekly (pretty much when I have time to, which I factor in to my day as much as I can). I do this on MC so as to keep my MC friends and encouragers informed of my progress. Feel free to visit MC (and sign up if you're not a member yet) and check out the forums for my post: Goal(s) for June 2009. (FYI: my username in MC is rjcharley.christianwriter - feel free to add me as a friend)

Well that's all from me for the time being. Can't wait to be privied to some of your goals for this coming month (or week, or year or however you set your goals). I'd love to help keep you encouraged on your path to fulfillment. It would be an honor and a privilege.

God bless...



ps. As of May 18, 2009 I started a huge goal - Mission: $1,000,000 in 90 days (May 18, 2009 - Aug 15, 2009) online via Internet Marketing, Donations, Online Income Opportunities, Infopreneurship, Ebay, other online opportunities. "For With God Nothing Is Impossible" Luke 1:37

In God We Trust: A Reminder from a Penny

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, on my CIB blog, I shared a story I came across entitled "God's Coffee". It's an inspirational story about life. I encourage you to go and take a look at it when you have a chance. Today I'd like to share on this blog, another story I came across entitled "Pennies".


You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is the first time I've ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something to think about.

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband's employer's home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about th e weekend.. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than her house.

The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live. The husband's employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself immensely.

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband. He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment..

Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts. Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny.

He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pock et as if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up?

Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her. Finally, she could stand it no longer. She casually mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value.

A smile crept across the man's face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?

'Look at it.' He said. 'Read what it says.' She read the words

' United States of America ' 'No, not that; read further.' 'One cent?'

'No, keep reading.' 'In God we Trust?'



'And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I find a coin, I see that inscription. It is written on every single United States coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God; that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is God's way of starting a conversation with me. Lucky for me, God is patient and pennies are plentiful!

When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I rea d the words, 'In God We Trust,' and had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message..

It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful! And, God is patient.."

Life Lesson: Who or What do YOU trust in? Do you trust in God? We must remember that whether we believe it or not He is our Creator and if we accept Jesus Christ His Son as our Savior then God is not only our Creator but He is our Heavenly Father as well. And as our Heavenly Father He loves us dearly and wants to shower us with His blessings. We should all remember that it is in Him we live and breathe and have our very being. Without God and His Son Jesus and what was done on the cross at Calvary for us, we wouldn't have a hope and a future as told to us by Jeremiah (in the Bible).

Just a very wonderful story I wanted to share with you. Hope it lifted you up the way it did me.

God bless..

Getting A 21st Century Education (for FREE)

Hi everyone,

I apologize for not posting as often as I'd like but I've been superbusy (my online efforts being only a part of what takes up my weekdays and weekends - I have a full-time job during the week and spend my weekends researching material for these posts.) I thank you faithful followers for your kindness and understanding. In appreciation please feel free to fill in the form to the left of this post for your free Cash In A Flash audio.

Now on to the topic for today: Getting A 21st Century Education (for FREE)

In his free ebook "What I Didn't Learn At School But Wish I Had", Jamie McIntyre (more about him in a few), reveals such things as the 5 Major Components of a 21st century education, the 3 Pillars of the Rich, The Meaning of Money, Finding Your Primary Purpose, Designing Your Life (and why this is so important), The 6 Human Needs and so much more. But why should you listen to Jamie McIntyre?

Jamie McIntyre is an extraordinary young Australian making a big difference to the quality of other people's lives in Australia and around the world. He is a sought after Success Coach (Life Coach) and has travelled the world meeting and learning from some of the very best teachers and leaders on the planet including Anthony Robbins (Unlimited Power), General Norman Schwarzkof (Desert Storm), and Paul Zane Piltzer (Unlimited Wealth), Jay Abrahams (Fortune 500 Marketing Consultant), Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad), and many others.

He became a self made millionaire in his twenties, an entrepreneur, a sought after public speaker, and author. He is founder of 21st Century Group of Companies, including 21st Century Accounting and 21st CenturyFinance. He is also the founder of 21st Century Academy, an education organisation that has provided a 21st century education to Australians and New Zealanders, and has received a Highly Commended Award from the Australian Achiever Awards. He was several years ago nominated as a Young Australian of the Year and has been responsible foreducating over 95,000 people through his DVD courses and live seminars.

He is a leading advocate for real life education including financial literacy to be implemented into high schools nation wide as well as world wide. He believes this will give teenagers the most important skills they will need to excel in the 21st century, and improve what many say is an inadequate and flawed education system. He is also an advocate to change the bias practices of the financial planning industry, and wants to see financial planners have to produce real life investment results in their own life before being allowed to advise others in financial planning.

He is lobbying for improvements to superannuation to ensure Australians can fund themselves in retirement and is critical of the lack of transparency, competency and accountability of regulatory bodiessuch as ASIC.

So after all that do you still think you should listen to him? If so get your free copy of "What I Didn't Learn At School But Wish I Had" ebook and then let me know what you think.

God bless...
