What Part Of Success Do You Want? Why Do You Continue To Push It Away?

What Part Of Success Do You Want?
Why Do You Continue To Push It Away?
By Nick Ashton, CEO/CTO, CommSmart Global Group of Companies.

Take a deep breath and answer the question!  Success, why are you afraid of being successful?  Is this a phobia that just will not go away?  It seems there are people who work in the opposite direction and want failure! 

It is like the salesman or woman who has the most fantastic sales and marketing pitch and just cannot or will not ask for the sale!  

They cannot close the deal!

Look, not everything we do in life is perfect and we certainly are not right all the time.  Then there are some that believe they can do no wrong, mostly politicians and current presidents are certainly the head of the line and among the mix.

As we age, we are learning to listen more and selectively choosing our battles.  It is our acceptance of failure that seems to have increased and the fight within, and is without effort.  It is the positive attitude that is necessary to believe in your products, services and capabilities.  

We do not need spin, we need the truth and utilize the positive capabilities of all.  It is with knowledge, collected knowledge at your fingertips that allows you to make those successful decisions, which are scattered through history. 

Edison, Tesla, Fords, Firestone, Dyson, Branson, Buffet, Gates, Jobs, Allen, Ashton, van de Kam, Keene and the list goes on and will never be completed.  It is the personal traits of us all that should drive us to the elusive successes through perseverance and determination. 

Success comes by listening to yourself and those around you, and then putting it into action!  

Words are just words,
actions come from doers!

WE are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…

Arrogance, Tea and No Cigar… Politics in America

Arrogance, Tea and No Cigar…
Politics in America
By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO/CTO, CommSmart Global Group of Companies.

Outside influences rage on all that we do.  Tripwires, pitfalls and obstinacy besiege those that have been elected to oversee how our nation can run effectively and efficiently for the people.   After all, it is the People's country.  Foolishly we have allowed these individuals to have free rein to dupe us, lie, cheat and steal, all in the name of democracy. 

When arrogance and megalomania abound, the outcome is predictable and as we are experiencing right now, it is a childish tug of war of words and tit for tat. The even sadder part of all this is quite simple, they don't recognize that they are the main part of the problem.

Look, we all have issues on one level or another and Barack Obama has the most arrogant chip on his shoulder that has to be removed surgically forthwith.  Simply knocking it off has failed and been an absolute waste of time, money and effort.  America and its citizens have been dragged down lower than at any time in its post war history and its People and fed up with the excuses and statements that it is for their our own good.  It is not!

Revolution springs to mind as when words fail constantly it is time to take a two by four and whack the offending party over the head to glean their attention.  Sadly they are too stubborn to know what had hit them in the first place and would take hit after hit, thinking something good was coming from it.

What is not required is more of the same actions over and over again.  America has been run on a defined two party system that up until 1939 worked pretty well for a young country.  We must not forget that the Founding Fathers left the Citizens of America a document that is so delicate, its contents and rights must be upheld without excuse or denial.  This is a foundation for the people, by the people and let no one change one single word or syllable upon penalty of death!

Grandstanding by individuals with leadership aspirations and to further their own stature is not required.  What is required is true leadership, grassroots with common sense overtones and the true spirit of what America was built on.

It is an insult to have party aligned by the name of tea.  Immediately, the Boston Tea Party is brought to mind and this grassroots organization is miles apart from what occurred in Boston and it is a disgrace and foolish to think otherwise. 

Being tea drinker, it is abysmal to use the word tea in this substitutive world.  Tea is a sacred beverage made from specially grown leaves from certain parts of the world.  Like fine wine, tea leaves hold properties and flavors to which we have sampled and understood their calming and healing properties.  It is the leaf, which like a good tobacco leaf for a quality cigar, has grown in the air and landscape, absorbing the natural aromas and well tilled soil within its region, giving of the final flavors, once it is laid out to dry.  It is a precise art form that only craftsmen and women are blessed with.

When I hear someone associate tea and politics, there is nothing more opposite in terms and I know they are gasping at something they are not.  Politics is far from refined and you only have be watching the political shenanigans regarding ObamaCare and Deficit Spending to realize the skullduggery of the Washington Morons. 

It has been proven that Washington D.C., politics and personality change go hand in hand.  Once elected the power of office and what it can do them and not the people who elected them, surges through their bodies and minds.  There is a simple cure that is in the hands of the people, removal from office and period being anybody, ignored by all and plunged into ice cold oblivion.

Someone I associate with, who is in the medical profession and a true Englishman, although he deals with those that have left us, Ducky stated when he saw someone with a teabag, which was not tea so he states, it was nothing more than dust.  Yes, tea dust!  An insult to the tea consumer or aficionado.  The leftovers or the sweepings off the floor.  It was not quality enough for a main stream tea or a fine hand-rolled cigar, purely discarded and trampled on and then sold to an unsuspecting consumer.  Yes, just like politics!

That is how I see this third party that is attempting to undermine the American citizens and cause conflict with one conservative party they are surely aligned with, but on a lower rung of the ladder, so to speak.  It is their belief, that you say something enough times and loud enough, it will become believable.  It will not!  They are cruising for a bruising, but not before they and the White House leadership have ruined a Nation, bled it dry, put current citizens in more personal debt, with it extremely hard to make ends meet and left nothing for the children of the future.  All in the form of arrogance and kindergarten behavior.  Childish, obstinate sycophants.

It is not that I am opposed to other parties that enter the political arena, it is the manner and manifesto that they used to misguide the people.  Liars springs to mind!

ObamaCare is a non-starter because it is a badly stolen format from several other National Health Systems which have or are failing by the minute.  To change medical costs in America has to start with how the system is used by the general public, or should I say misused.

The other and more important factor is how medical billing is approached in this extremely litigious society.  Every step of the way you are billed separately for every single facet at exorbitant rates.  Yes, commercial rip off comes to mind.

I was asked the other if my blog was still active, I replied, yes, it is has been left idle for a period of extreme busyness and really a disgust of the actions from the President down that has silenced my fingers, but not my mind. 

It is time for major change in the structure of America, placing the rights of the people back in their hands as laid out in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.  You might find it strange that a British Citizen and resident of America would use this words and even have these thoughts, well, be surprised for only a moment and go back and understand the Founding Fathers objectives and wishes to protect this land.

Among us are defined leaders who have the expertise of government, business and the well being of a Nations People.  Many you already know and are not in office as we speak.  Radicals are not required, it is proven that conservative thinkers do best in office and not liberal dreamers who are one step away from communism or leftist views.

It is the return of the People to the Peoples House and prove that Americans have the will and fortitude to bring back the solid nation this once was.  People working for a far days pay and losing the word entitlements from American culture. 

Nothing is more enlightening than working people, who have food in their bellies and the laughter of children surrounding a community.

Come on America bring back what once has been and will be again

WE are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…

If I hear the words "Black Lives Matter" one more time, I will scream!

Life has no color!  It so annoying that segments of society think they have to emphasize their color, religion and status in life.  

You do not!

Dividing each other from the wrongs of the past only propels the issues and exacerbates the concerns.

Slavery can be traced back to the earliest records, such as the Code of Hammurabi (c. 1760 BC), which refers to it as an established institution. Slavery is rare among hunter-gatherer populations, as it is developed as a system of social stratification. Slavery was known in civilizations as old as Sumer, as well as almost every other ancient civilization. The Byzantine-Ottoman wars and the Ottoman wars in Europe resulted in the taking of large numbers of Christian slaves. Similarly, Christians sold Muslim slaves captured in war and also the Islamic World was engaged in slavery. 

Slavery became common within the British Isles during the Middle Ages. Britain played a prominent role in the Atlantic slave trade, especially after 1600. Slavery was a legal institution in all of the 13 American colonies and Canada (acquired by Britain in 1763). Slavery was endemic in Africa and part of the structure of everyday life. 

David P. Forsythe wrote: "The fact remained that at the beginning of the nineteenth century an estimated three-quarters of all people alive were trapped in bondage against their will either in some form of slavery or serfdom." Denmark-Norway was the first European country to ban the slave trade.

The truth be known that it was the "Whites" who started slavery in Africa, it is was the Elders of the tribes who saw a financial opportunity.  They were selling their own people!

Was wrong to take the Elders up on the offer of cheap labor?  Morals are morals and certainly the morality law was broken on both sides.

How many times have you been offered a deal to save money on electronics, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol or something that was "on the cheap" and took it?

Everyone has a price!

Cotton and tobacco farmers in the USA thrived with the inexpensive labor that was purchased from Africa.  The Civil War was not about Slavery, in fact slavery was all over when the war started.  It was about the amount of taxes the North was not receiving from the South that this war was really about.

I lived in predominantly "White" England. Why do I say that? Simple, there were not many dark skinned people in England. The influx from India, Pakistan and the West Indies happen because they were part of the British Commonwealth and their right to come and live in any Commonwealth country was going to be gone.

Just after World War II ended in 1945, the first groups of Britain’s post-war Caribbean immigrants settled in London. There were an estimated 492 that were passengers on the SS Empire Windrush. These passengers settled in the area of Brixton which is now a prominently black district in Britain. 

From the 1950s into the 1960s there was a mass migration of workers from all over the English-speaking Caribbean, particularly Jamaica, who settled in Britain. These immigrants were invited to fill labour requirements in London’s hospitals, transportation venues and railway development. They are widely viewed as having been a major contributing factor to the rebuilding of the post-war urban London economy.

In 1962 the Commonwealth Immigrants Act was passed in Britain along with a succession of other laws in 1968, 1971, and 1981 that severely restricted the entry of Black immigrants into Britain. During this period it is widely argued that emergent blacks and Asians struggled in Britain against racism and prejudice. 

In 1975 a new voice emerged for the black London population; his name was David Pitt and he brought a new voice to the House of Lords. He spoke against racism and for equality in regards to all residents of Britain. With this new tone also came the opportunity for the black population to elect four Black members into Parliament.

I am lead to ask a very controversial series of questions.

Has the so called Black American Race and the emerged leadership within them, caused their own issues and demise?

Let us look at this another way, once slavery was totally abolished, you know had a segment of society being introduced into a different realm of life.  People were set in their ways and as far as many were concerned, Whites, that is. These supposed people were a discarded remnant of bygone years and should stay that way.


They had every right to be where they were.  What caused the major issues was an uprising of so-called "Black Do Gooders", who thought and knew they could take advantage of their Black Brothers and Sisters.  Even today, that "click" is still around and misleading the flock.

In a commercial world of business it is called "Branding".  No, I do not with a hot iron and making a mark like we do on cattle.  Although, there are similarities.  Branding is ownership, Procter & Gamble own their products which have been named and are synonymous to them.

Here, in my opinion is where it all fell apart for the freed slaves.  They became manipulated from within, supposed intelligence was now leading them. Oppressed people by nature will listen to anything that sounds good!

So instead of being called "Blacks" it was now going to be "Coloreds", thinking that would change the mindset of others, mainly the "Whites".

Did not work, wrong direction for societal integration!

Employment was still low level tasks, farmworker, housemaid, cleaner, work that "Whites" did not want to do. 

Then comes along someone with another rebranding idea.

The Rainbow Coalition was a coalition active in the late 1960s and early 1970s, founded in Chicago, Illinois by Fred Hampton of the activist Black Panther Party, along with William "Preacherman" Fesperman, Jack (Junebug) Boykin, Bobby Joe Mcginnis and Hy Thurman of the Young Patriots Organization and Jose Cha Cha Jimenez, the Puerto Rican founder of the Young Lords. It later expanded to include various radical socialist groups. It was associated with the rising Black Power movement, which mobilized some African-American discontent and activism by other ethnic minority groups after the passage of the mid-1960s civil rights legislation under Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson.

That is where it all went wrong!

Next another change or rebranding.

African American, also referred to as Black American or Afro-American, is an ethnic group of Americans (citizens or residents of the United States) with total or partial ancestry from any of the native populations of Sub-Saharan Africa.  The term may also be used to include only those individuals who are descended from enslaved Africans. As a compound adjective the term is usually hyphenated as African-American.

African Americans constitute the third largest racial and ethnic group in the United States (after White Americans and Hispanic and Latino Americans).  Most African Americans are of West and Central African descent and are descendants of enslaved blacks within the boundaries of the present United States. However, immigrants from African, Caribbean,Central American, and South American nations and their descendants may or may not also self-identify with the term.

African-American history starts in the 16th century, with Africans forcibly taken as slaves to Spanish America, and in the 17th century with African slaves taken to English colonies in North America. After the founding of the United States, black people continued to be enslaved. Believed to be inferior to white people, they were treated as second-class citizens. These circumstances were changed by Reconstruction, development of the black community, participation in the great military conflicts of the United States, the elimination of racial segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement. 

In 2008, Barack Obama became the first African American to be elected president of the United States.  Which still has much debate and controversy.

Oprah Winfrey stated that she is American, not African American, she has been to Africa and that made her mind up for her!

Today the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, have mislead for too long the Black community.

We have no room for color being a classification, it is people, human beings, God's children.  The divide must stop as it is killing our society and each other.
