Born To Build, Part 2, The Four Keys To Building

The Builder’s Mindset

We are all the builder of our own life and our work or careers are one of the biggest parts of our lives. The work we do and career paths we pursue takes up a large part of our time. We should all be pursuing work and careers that we enjoy and that we are passionate about, if we do it will give us our best life imaginable.

In this book they have lots of story’s about people who went out and built their life and career around their dreams and passions.

The most important thing they are trying to convey with this book is it takes drive and motivation to think like a builder. They think the builder way of thinking is an essential life skill. It takes a willingness to develop your natural talents like determination, personal initiative and creative thinking.

These are the four keys to finding and living your best life imaginable.

The First Key: Creating Self-Awareness

Self awareness is a big part of deciding what type of career you choose to pursue with your life. Doing some type of work to earn the income to live the life of your dreams has a lot to do with who you are mentally, physically and emotionally.

This part of the book is full of charts that go into detail on how you can really get to know what your strengths and weakness are in your natural talents and skills.

One of the main things they think people should do is really get to know what your natural talents and skills are so you can choose a career path the aligns with them.

They also think you need to have a good understanding of your personality type and the things that interest you the most. Choosing a career path the aligns with your personality and interest are important to living your best life imaginable.

This is just a few of the things they have written about in this book but knowing yourself inside and out is a very important aspect of living your dream life.

The Second Key: Recognizing Opportunities

The path to finding the career and opportunities that are right for you are found in what you learned about yourself by creating self awareness.

Ask yourself questions like what are your interest and what concerns do you see in the world around you?

What are your natural talents and skills?

In this part of the book they write about keeping a journal of the things you are most interested in and what problems you see in the world that you could provide help to solve.

They also write about growing your network of people in your life. One of the best ways to find and recognize the opportunities in the world around you is by getting out and talking to a lot of people who have similar interest and values.

One question to ask yourself is, do you feel you have a purpose or cause that you want to be part of the solution? Having a purpose in life can bring out a whole new creative thinking process that you may have never let dominate you mind before.

Do you have a product or service that you think the world really needs?

When you apply thinking and time to looking for the right opportunity for your life you will start seeing opportunities that you never saw before.

One of the problems I see in the world that I think needs to be solved is poverty. I think we should be teaching people how to build a life time residual income.

The Third Key: Activating Ideas

Your future depends on your actions.

Activating on your ideas is where talent and opportunity meet. You can only have the best life possible if you acquire the skills and talents to achieve the opportunity’s you want to work on.

In this part of the book they talk about mainly things that need to be done for people looking to start a business startup. If your a person who plans on working a regular job your whole life then this part won’t help you much.

For example, I write because I want to help people build a life time residual income. One of the things I have been working on is finding out if there is people who have an interest in learning about residual income. Do this is an experiment they call activating ideas. The goal is to find out if people have an interest or not. Residual income can bring a lot of people financial freedom but only if they want financial freedom.

Poverty is one of the problems I see in the world that could be solved by teaching people how to build a life time residual income. Teaching people about profit and revenue sharing and how it works is an experiment I have been working on. If you have read my earlier post here at this blog you know what I mean.

The Four Key: Building A Team

No one accomplishes anything all by their self.

In this part of the book they go into detail about finding people to be part of your team. Nothing in this world is ever built by one person, we all have to find partners and team members.

The most important people to have on your team is your family and friends, if they don’t believe in your goals and dreams then you are not able to have your best life imaginable. I hope you have a supportive family and friends that support you.

This has been one of my problems getting started, my family and colleagues don’t seem to care about the problems I see in the world and don’t support me in my quest to help.

We need to find like minded people with different talents and skills.

In my case I have been looking for people who are like minded, people who want residual income and that believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn how to build residual income.

Building a team of people in the world we live in is very hard, most people are working their life away trying to pay the bills. Most people are to busy trying to survive and have little time to worry about a big problem like poverty in the world around us.

This is just a brief summary of this part of the book.

The book went into a lot more detail into all of these subjects. The writers used story’s of real people who were building businesses and professionals working for different companies.

They also described tools people can use to help in each part to gain a more in depth look at the process of digging deep into each part.

This book is really for people who are wanting to build a career around a purpose or cause. It was written for the serious minded person who has big dreams and goals who want to work to make the world a better place to live.

There are more parts to the book that I will write post about later.

The world would be a better place if people earned more income.

I am going to take this opportunity to invite you to read a post I wrote on how residual income can give you financial freedom.

My grand kids are the reason I decided to become a residual income teacher.

I got to visit the Cincinnati Zoo the other day with my 3 granddaughters and we had a lot of fun. My granddaughters are the reason I decided to become a residual income teacher.

I believe they are growing up in a world where the middle class is shrinking because the cost of living is growing higher while wages are not.

I believe this problem is every where in the world, not just here in America.


If we don’t start helping people make more money we are going to live in a world with more and more people living in poverty.


When you look around at all the poverty around you does it bought you?


Would you help people in need if you had the right tools to help them?

The affiliate membership program I am teaching here with this blog is pretty simple to learn. It is based on simple math we all learn at school as children.

If your interested in making the world a better place by teaching people how to build a life time residual income then read some of my earlier articles and start a conversation with me here at this blog.

I was nominated for a blogger recognition award.

I was nominated by sunshinysa, you can visit her blog by following the link.

I don’t think I really deserve any recognition and I am glad she didn’t include a lot of questions for me answer.

I have always enjoyed writing, this may be because I am an avid reader.

I started writing this blog because I see a problem in the world I think people need to understand.

Here in America we have millions of people who live paycheck to paycheck and still do not make enough money to survive. The problem is the cost of living is going up but the companies we work for will not pay anymore money. Wages are still the same as they were 15 years ago.

I believe the solution to this problem is residual income. That is why I started a blog to teach people about residual income.

Like all things it does require people to learn how it works. I learned about it by reading books so I am writing about it to spread awareness.

I am also representing a company that makes residual income possible for anyone willing to take the time to learn how it works.

The program I am teaching is designed for people who want to build a life time residual income. It is designed around people helping people.

Networking is people helping people, working together to achieve a common goal.

The only way to solve a problem that may be a world wide problem is for people to work together to solve the problem.

I am currently trying to organize some of my earlier blog post into a training program that can be used to teach residual income with very little effort.

Families Belong Together, Protest Immigration Policies Nationwide here in America

Been watching and reading the news about all the rallies and protest going on here in America about immigration policies. They are protesting because children are being separated of their parents as they enter the country. The parents are being held in different places from the children. There are a lot of pictures of the children being held in what looks like cages. Immigration policies have always been an issue here in America and it is now one of the biggest political battles going on between the two political party’s.

I find it fascinating how passionate millions of Americans can get about an issue like immigration but at the same time we have millions of actual Americans living in poverty and very few Americans care about the families living in poverty.

One of the main problems we have here in America is people are taught to get jobs and work for paychecks that won’t pay the bills. The cost of living is getting higher all the time but the employers don’t want to pay a livable wage.

I read articles about how over 50 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck with no money saved for emergencies and wonder why Americans are not very concerned about their own people.

By reading books like Robert Kiyosaki’s I have learned the reason so many Americans are struggling with to little money is we are working for the wrong kind of pay. We should be working to build a life time residual income instead of low hourly wages. That is probably true all over the world, everyone in the world should be building a life time residual income.

I think we should be teaching the immigrants and people all over the world how to build a life time residual income. We can help people all over the world learn how to become financially free.

We should organize an online school to teach life time residual income to people all over the world.
