7 Easy Steps to Being a Better Person

As I listen to DJ Kaleh’s “All I do is Win” (it is one of my rules, winning.) I ponder, how can I help people be better and celebrate wins in life too.

I know, I am a giver imparting this knowledge. I am even going to give you a secret at the end so read through.

  1. Laugh-big belly laughs-like Santa, or ‘till your sides hurt or even better ‘till you pee your pants! Laughter is medicine for the soul, often far better than a therapist.
  2. Take chances-Live life to the fullest. Do something different. Live like you were dying-that seems a bit extreme. But great song.
  3. Love unconditionally-Unconditional Love. Try it sometime. So much harder to do with people than you think. Anyone can love a cute puppy, but try a person. Even a person who may have done horrible things. I dare you. Love them unconditionally. Tell someone “There is nothing they could ever do that would make you stop loving them.” And MEAN it, then PROVE it.

Love- brings relief. Relief helps you go on, allow the light in and good things to happen. Relief helps you to feel again and feeling lets the love in. Love heals, repairs and energizes you. It is a circle.

  1. Forgive-It can be one of the hardest things to do in life. And it is connected to loving unconditionally. We have to forgive to truly be free. To free the baggage of our souls, and the wrongs done to us. Forgive. Fight, Protect, Defend and then when you need to, when the burden is too much to bear, forgive. When you can. When you are ready.
  2. Trust-You need to be able to trust in order to navigate life. Trust, love and faith go hand in hand. Trust helps you breathe. It gives you relief.  Everyone needs at least one person to trust. No man is an island. About a Boy
  3. Faith- If you have faith, you can trust-ya? You have faith that things are going to turn out ok, or even great. Because you are trusting in God, or a power greater than yourself, or a cosmic energy.
  4. Dance-When all else fails, or you just don’t know what to do. Dance. Hopefully when no one is watching, unless you like clubbing. Either way just dance. It does a body good.

I think that sums it up nicely.

Here is a secret for teachers, leaders, captains of industry etc.  Steps to imparting knowledge: Show Up, Get their Attention, Earn their Respect, then, they will Listen, and only then, you can Teach so they will Learn.

4 Steps to Better Meatballs!

Keep these simple rules in mind and you are on your way!

Keep it moist-use milk, cheese or veggies to keep your balls moist.

Pack in the flavor-Keep ingredients fresh and flavorful.

Surprise me-Add secret ingredients. Change it up sometimes. You can add different spices to take the balls in many directions: sweet, sour, or savory. Try different, types of ground meat or meat alternatives. It isn’t all about the beef you know!

Do not over-cook! If you overcook the meat, then you won’t be able to achieve rule number one, keeping it moist.

How do I keep from overcooking my balls you ask? Let’s review: utilize fresh, flavorful ingredients, including milk and/or cheese, eggs and breadcrumbs for a plump, airy ball.

Go long and be sure to cook those balls through. However, don’t overdo it! These balls do not need to be crisp on the outside, unlike the edges of a finely cooked burger.

You can mix it up, as suggested in surprise me. Here are a few of my standard ingredients for the better ball.  Top Grade beef, with a little fat, not too much, not too lean. Milk, shredded Italian cheeses, fresh, pressed garlic, very, finely ground breadcrumbs, fresh, finely chopped basil, pepper, salt, splash of worcestershire sauce, a beaten egg. Then mix and form balls by hand.

Balls can be formed in many, different, sizes, depending on personal taste. Be sure to make them uniform in size, so they cook through for the same amount of time.

The next pertinent question is: to dress or not to dress? Your balls may be the main dish, an appetizer, or part of a pasta dinner. Depending on the answer to this, you may dress them with marinara, a creamy alfredo, BBQ, or teriyaki sauce. You decide; similar to burgers, balls are very versatile and a fit for many an occasion ranging from casual to gourmet.

“Pardon me, but could you pass the balls?” Just like the Grey Poupon commercial, your balls will be in high demand. Speaking of, mustard is another great ingredient to add into the mix or spread on top!

Now, you are well on your way to mouthwatering, pleasing balls every time!

 

******Why is this post on a marketing website you ask? Well, first, as an example of our content creation. Second, to show how voice and tone of passage can influence the message you are trying to send. And third, the content may seem completely off-topic, but if it catches their attention and keeps the reader engaged you have the opportunity to take the audience where you want them to go. Maybe this entire post was leading up selling Grey Poupon? So, this is one way to put in product placement without feeling sold to. ******************
