Electrical Remodel Project: My Old Ranch House & My Old Brain, Part 3

Are you still with me? I sure hope I make it worth your while as I unveil what I found as I remodeled this ole cowboy's way of thinking.

The first and most important thing I learned was that I wasn't going to get rich quick! It would take much effort and time to become successful. The second thing I learned was that if their was any money at all to made on the internet, I needed to develop relationships with people. I needed to learn how to make friends on the internet.

This would require things that I have never done before. Writing has now taken on a whole new purpose for me. I am beginning to see that sharing my thoughts and ideas is a great way to connect with people. I have done more reading in the past few months than I have in the past thirty years of work.

Much of the reading I have done has been right here on Street Articles. I have learned a great deal about many authors here. You know who you are! I leave my comments on the articles that I read. In fact, you know when I have read your article, because if I am going to take the time to read your article, I figure it only takes a moment to connect with you through the comments I leave.

I hope you find it as thrilling as I do when I read your comments about this ole cowboys thoughts, opinions and ideas. This new phenomenon has my new mental wiring and service panels bursting with energy.

I never thought that writing could be so rewarding, and I don't mean the all mighty dollar rewards, either. Connecting with people through writing has this ole cowboy fired up and excited about life again.

Ok, now it's time to compare the two remodel projects. Do you remember what the problems were with the old electrical wiring in our ranch house? Oh yeah, the lights going dim because of circuit overloads and the danger of the house burning down.

I want you to know something. The same can be said of this new internet world and being able to survive in it. If you use the same old mental thought processes that are successful in getting good grades, then you will probably end up blowing mental fuses or even worse, you could end up burning down your whole mental electrical structure!

My ole brain remodel project is far from being completed. I will be sure to keep my Street Article friends up to date as to new developments along the way.

As always, just some thoughts of this ole cowboy.

Looking forward to reading more about the process you are undergoing. It is exciting. I also love to read people's comments. Most of the articles are very personal and enlightening. The more I learn about others, the more I realize we are all the same in essential ways.
