Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson and son CJ, with John Wesley Shipp, at the Greater Austin Comic Con. (Cedar Park, Texas - June 16th, 2018)

About John Wesley Shipp-

John Wesley Shipp has portrayed Henry Allen, the father to Grant Gustin's Scarlet Speedster on the CW's hit series The Flash. He also plays Jay Garrick, "The Golden Age hero. Shipp starred as The Flash when CBS brought the series to television in 1990's; in fact, he has played four roles in the "Flash" multiverse: Barry Allen, Professor Zoom, Henry Allen, and Jay Garrick.

A constant presence on television for nearly four decades, Shipp took on another iconic role after The Flash that of Mitch Leery, James Van der Beek's father, on the WB's coming of age series Dawson's Creek. He continued with a memorable turn as boxer Lucky Williams, love interest to Julianne Phillip's Frankie, on Season 5 of NBC's hit drama Sisters, and terrified audiences with his haunting arc as Isaac's abusive father and Beacon Hills gravedigger, Mr. Lahey, opposite Daniel Sharman on MTV's drama Teen Wolf.

Thank you Greater Austin Comic Con, for the fun memories. My son and I loved every minute of it!

Sincerely,

Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Masters of Money LLC Acquires Nerdy Black Girls LLC For $350,000

Today, May 29th, 2018, Masters of Money, LLC., made its second ever company acquisition, by acquiring Nerdy Black Girls, LLC., for $350,000.

Masters of Money LLC's first company acquisition was the Money Channel, on September 11th, 2017, for $1,700,000. 

Nerdy Black Girls, LLC., is a social media company, focused on connecting with the nerdy black girl/nerdy girl genre, and was founded by Malia Johnson(My now wife), in January 2014. 

"I figured their had to be other nerdy black girls out there like me, who would want to connect with other nerdy black girls." Malia Johnson, Founder of Nerdy Black Girls, LLC. 

When Malia got pregnant at the end of 2016, she decided she was going to take some time off, and bring on a partner, who could run the company in her absense. 

The partner she decided to bring on, was none other than Masters of Money's head of animation and social media, Tarica Patel, aka BABB (Bad Ass Bangalore Bitch). 

For anyone who doesn't know who Tarica Patel, aka BABB is, she is one of the best animators in the world, and has done work for many of the world's largest public and private animation and video companies. 

BABB has the ability to bring just about any concept or idea to life. It is truly amazing to see her skills in action. 

In mid 2017, Malia decided to sell her remaining ownership in Nerdy Black Girls, LLC., to BABB. 

Over the last year and a half, BABB grew has grown the company, from approximately 280,000 followers, and 1,500 monthly subscribers, to approximately 1,300,000 followers, and 7,800 monthly subscribers. 

BABB has been running Nerdy Black Girls, and also working for Masters of Money, as the head of animation and social media, at the same time. 

Everyday she had to drive back and forth between the two companies muliple times. Each way is approximately a 30 minute drive. 

BABB walked into my office at the beginning of this month, and said- "I like creating and being creative. I don't like running one company, while working for another one. Some day when you get old, I am going to take over Masters of Money, and turn it into a multi-billion company. Here is what you are going to do. You are going to buy Nerdy Black Girls from me for $350,000, close down their office, and move the company into Masters of Money's building. There will be no negotiationing. I am going back to my office to coordinate the merger right now."

I didn't/don't know anything about Nerdy Black Girls, but I am married to one, the price was right, the merger made sense from a synergistic standpoint, the deal pays for itself with the revenue the company makes in fairly short order, and BABB is going to be happier and more productive. 

BABB, I think you may have made history with this merger/acquisition, because I never actually agreed to buy the company, until the lawyers showed up and worked out the details, which was today, May 29th! 

From almost the minute BABB left my office, on the day she told me Masters of Money was going to buy Nerdy Black Girls, which was May 2nd, she started working on the merger.

I asked BABB what she would have done, if I would have said no, and she said- "You weren't going to say no, even if you didn't want to do it, because of what the company means to you."

Which leads me to my next point. My wife asked me to tell everyone the "real reason" I bought the company, besides the fact that it makes sense to do from a business standpoint, so here it is- 

When Malia broke up with me in September of 2013(it's complicated), she started working on Nerdy Black Girls, LLC., to keep her mind off of me. BABB was 100% correct about the fact that I wouldn't say no, because I have always looked at the company, like it helped Malia to break up with me.

I do like the idea of Masters of Money(My company) and Nerdy Black Girls(Malia's old company), merging(getting married), because it signifies what has happened between the two of us, between then and now.

Bottom line- Nerdy Black Girl LLC team, welcome to the Masters of Money family of companies. We are happy to have you. 

The Masters of Money, LLC., family of companies, includes the Money Channel (Money and finance related video content management and distribution), "MJ The Terrible" & Team Digital Death, Ltd. (AG) Based in Switzerland (Cyber security), and now Nerdy Black Girls, LLC. (Social media)

An Open Letter To All 2018 College Graduates by Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Dear 2018 College Graduates, 

I would like to start off by saying congratulations. It may seem like a large percentage of the population has a college degree, but in fact, the opposite is true. 

According to the U.S. Department of Education, only approximately 30% of adults living in the United States, have a college degree. 

A college degree is a great thing to have. It can open up opportunities for you. It increases your likelihood of getting hired. It shows that you can learn, and that you complete what you start. 

Don't let this burst your bubble, but I have to say it....Although a college degree can get your foot in the door, it won't keep your foot in the door, unless you are getting the job done. A college degree is not a crutch. It is a tool. 

All of the dreaming about the possibilities that you've done, from landing your dream job, to having your own business, to building the life and lifestyle of your dreams, is all possible, but to get what you want, you've gotta earn it.

If you do the best you can in every situation, keep an open mind to new possibilities, are willing to learn, listen to the people who are where you want to be, are kind to others, keep your word, believe in yourself, treat your body well, and use your time wisely, you are extremely likely to achieve the life and lifestyle that you desire. 

"When you do the right things consistently, over a long enough period of time, you are positioning yourself to be in the right place, at the right time, when opportunity strikes." Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson - Founder & Owner - Masters of Money, LLC.

Work hard. Put in the time. Put up the numbers. Pay your dues, and eventually you will get what you want/get where you want to be. 

In closing- A lot of things matter, but we each decide what we want to make important in our lives. 

Congratulations and good luck!

Yours in success,

Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

You Should Read This! by Marcus Jennings

To You,

Do you. Be you. You can do it. You got this. Show yourself what you can do.

You may not have all of the answers, but you can find them.

You may not be where you want to be at in life yet, but you can change that.

Don't sweat the small stuff, because life is to short.

If you need to throw yourself a pity party, do it. After the pity party, you need to get up, dust yourself off, and then get back on track.

To the world, you may be just one person, but to one person, you may be the world.

Don't take your friends and family for granted, because you will regret it.

You only live once. I hope you make the most of it.

Never let anyone tell you, that you can't do something. You should never sell yourself short. You are capable of more than you think you are, and don't you ever forget that!

Thank you for reading this. You may not know me, and I may not know you, but I believe in you.

Wishing you the best,

Marcus Jennings
Proud member of "MJ The Terrible" & Team Digital Death

P.S. Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson, you are the best man I have ever known. You saved my life. You helped me believe in myself. Thank you for being my best friend. I love you bro!

Michael Jordan Michael Jackson & Michael Johnson: The 3 MJ The Terrible's

Question: MJ, I came across your website's when I was having a debate with somebody about who was a better ball player, Michael Jordan, or Lebron James.

I found out Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson had the same nickname as you, "MJ The Terrible".

Did you know Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, and you, all have the nickname "MJ The Terrible"?

Did you use the nickname "MJ The Terrible" as a marketing gimmick, to get name association with the other 2 MJ The Terrible's?

They did come along before you, and have the nicknames first. Different industries though. You guys are "The 3 MJ The Terrible's".

Love your stuff man. Keep putting out the great info. Because of the post you did about making money as an Amazon affiliate, I signed up. So far so good. I have already made over 3 grand. Thank you for all that you do. Joe Albaugh Albany, New York

Answer: Thank you for the questions and compliments Joe! I am happy that you signed up for the Amazon Affiliate Program. I think it is one of the best ways to make money online as an affiliate, if not the best way to make money online as an affiliate.

I love what I do. It is a great feeling to be doing well, by doing good.

I did not know Michael Jordan or Michael Jackson also had the "MJ The Terrible" nickname, until recently.

As an entrepreneur, sometimes you get lucky breaks, and sometimes you don't. In this case, having the "MJ The Terrible" nickname association, with Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson, was a lucky break.

People have been calling me MJ for years. The "The Terrible" part, came together through the combination of the computer virus I was rumored to have created, that was responsible for a large scale international incident, and my son was 2 years old at the time, an age that is often referred to as "The Terrible Twos". Put those 3 things together, and people started calling me "MJ The Terrible".

My two cents on the Michael Jordan or Lebron James debate. It is a tough choice. I grew up watching Michael Jordan, but I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, where Lebron James was born and raised. I enjoyed watching Michael Jordan play back in the day, and I enjoy watching Lebron James play now. I am not sure who is better, but I am damn sure glad they both have played the game of basketball.

The Toothache Remedy! by Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Before we get started, I want to say, that I am not a Doctor/Dentist. The only medical training I've had, is CPR lessons. 

That said, I have experienced excruciating tooth/jaw pain, and both times, the only thing that helped to relieve that pain, was the product I am going to tell you about on this post. 

I hope my experiences with tooth pain, and the remedy mentioned in this post, will help you, if you experience a toothache/jaw pain, and you either can't get in to see your Dentist, can't afford to go see a Dentist, etc. 

Okay, here we go.....

At 3 o'clock in the morning, when you wake up to a God awful toothache, what do you do? 

Well, if you are married/have a significant other like I do, you have to make the decision....Do I wake my wife/significant other up to help me, or let them sleep? 

In both of the cases where this happened to me, that choice was made for me, because I was flopping around in bed, like a fish out of water, and woke her up. 

Luckily, my wife is the caring/compassionate type, and a Google search master.

When she could tell how much pain I was in/how uncomfortable I was, she sprung into action. 

While I was laying in the shower, with the shower water blasting at my face, my wife was doing Google searches for tooth pain/toothache remedies, looking up over the counter medications, and trying to find tooth pain help advice.

The thing she found that seemed to be the highest rated, and most recommended, was something called- "Red Cross Toothache Complete Medication Kit"

We couldn't find it at Walgreens or CVS, so we tried 4 or 5 other options, from over the counter pain relievers, to numbing kits, and more. Nothing worked!!!

My wife ordered a "Red Cross Toothache Complete Medication Kit", after we got home from our CVS/Walgreens run, and saw that nothing was working. 

The next day, I was still in excruciating pain, and then.....the "Red Cross Toothache Complete Medication Kit" my wife had ordered for next day delivery arrived. 

As she was opening the package, she said- "Go to the bathroom. We're trying this shit right now!"

After she applied the liquid to the toothache area in my mouth, about 5-10 minutes later, the pain was completely gone! 

I/we highly recommend buying a Red Cross Toothache Complete Medication Kit. It worked for me/us twice, it is highly rated, and highly recommended. 

If you have tooth pain/a toothache, buy this stuff and try it. If you don't have a toothache, buy a box anyway. Stock up just in case. You will wish you had, if you wake up one night in agonizing pain. 

I am not a paid spokesman for this product or company. I am recommending this product, because it is a "friggin miracle product", as my wife said that I said, after my tooth pain went away.

Dealing With Haters For Beginners by Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

The world is filled with virtually endless varieties of people, and I wholeheartedly believe that the vast majority, are kind and decent, but a small percentage are just plain haters.

A hater is someone who nothing is ever good enough for, and nomatter what you do, it never is.

Haters are unreasonable, one sided, self interested, self absorded, arrogant, don't want to be fair, aren't open minded, don't like you for some reason, judge you without knowing you, criticize your idea, just because it wasn't theirs, is against your proposal, even if it is better, simply because it would change things for them, set up roadblocks to stop you from doing something, just because they feel like it, and on, and on, and on, and on.

Haters, there is no doubt about it. You can be annoying as hell, if we pay attention to you. The key is- "If" we pay attention to you.

When you start making some noise, succeeding, or making some waves, you start to attract people who see what you you doing, and they don't like it. They may not like what you are doing for fair reasons, or they may not like what you are doing, for unfair reasons. 

If they don't like what you are doing for unfair reasons, you have more than likely got yourself a hater. 

When you are new to experiencing the attention of a hater/haters, it can catch you off guard/mess with your head/make you second guess yourself/hurt your feelings/slow down your progress, etc. 

Haters are not open minded, they are not interested in fairness, and most of the time, they are only interested in their 3 favorite people- Me, myself, and I. 

As they say- "Haters are gonna hate." We can't control the fact that haters are going to hate, but we can control how much we let them effect us, and our efforts. 

If whatever you are doing to make some noise, succeed, or cause some waves isn't illegal, and you are not hurting anyone by doing it......GO FOR IT! 

Make the decision to do what you have got to do, to make things happen, and get stuff done. Your future self, and maybe others, will thank you for it! 

Two of my favorite hater quotes: 

"I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." Kurt Cobain

"I am going to cause my haters so many fits, they are going to need prescriptions for Xanax(Zanax), or their heads will explode." Marcus Jennings (One of my closest friends, a member of "MJ The Terrible" & Team Digital Death, and a business partner)

2 Game Changing Job Interview Tips Worth Knowing & Using by Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Without a doubt, my 2 favorite game changing job interview tips to follow are: 

1. Use high quality water marked, off white paper. White paper is white paper, but high quality water marked, Southworth paper, well, that's just important.

2. Have personal professional business cards made that match the color of the high quality resume paper that you are using. 

Having a business card to hand to the interviewer, along with using watermarked Southworth/high quality watermarked paper, should put your resume at the top of the pile, and thoroughly impress the interviewer!

(See attached picture examples.)

How To Find & Get "The Perfect Job"

When you are ready to connect to your perfect job, make sure you choose the method that is going to provide you with the most job leads. It will become a simpler process as you become more familiar with where to find job leads based on your job preferences. In addition, as you learn how to present yourself positively you will land that perfect job, and no longer have to take the time to conduct job searches. Everything ties in together and complements each part of the process. It is important to make sure you understand all of the steps in order to have assurance you are doing everything that is necessary from job search to application to interview.

Is the Perfect Job Fact or Fantasy?

How often we talk about having the perfect job yet is there really such a thing? Is there anything that is perfect in life? When it comes to the perfect job, it is something that is in the mind of the job seeker. Each person has his or her own idea about what constitutes the perfect job, and only the person making the choice can identify what is truly a perfect job. The definition is different for each person, and is therefore not something one can identify with a dictionary definition.

For some people, the perfect job may mean being able to have weekends free to spend with family, or being there when the children come home from school. Each person's definition will be directed toward what is important for that person, and not for the entirework force in general. It is impossible to say that any one type of job is the perfect job, because that in itself would be putting the term into a world of fantasy. There will never be any two people who will want the exact same thing from a job, and as such, there will never be two people who view a perfect job in the same way.

What is a perfect job? 

The term will vary among job seekers and is impossible to identify otherwise. As a job seeker, you must decide what you consider a perfect job to be. That means you must place your own identification marks on it and decide what you need and what you seek. The combination of things you seek in a job will be you definition of the perfect job, and these will be different from someone else. You and others you know may have some of the same requirements but they will never be the same-there will always be some differences even if it is just one of the items on your list.

The Best Job Resources:

With so many different job resources it can be difficult for someone to decide which ones are best and offer the highest potential for success. Depending on your field of expertise, you may wish to take the time to look at all of the potential resources rather than attempting to limit yourself to one or two. Of course, if you are interested in a highly specialized field, it will certainly be better if you utilize the resources for that particular field in order to make certain you spend as little time as possible in the job seeking process.

Although some people still tend to look at the local circuit when looking for the perfect job, it's important to remember that many employers have gone away from newspaper advertising simply because it is too costly and because job applicants today tend to utilize the Internet rather than local newspaper to conduct their job searches. The want to find the highest number of results in the quickest time possible and the Internet provides that. In addition, they are able to search the listings and find enough information to know if a particular position meets their needs.

Trade publications have become very popular sources for job advertisements, and many people of professional standing, are now using this source for job/career possibilities. 

Never discount any source of potential job postings, because you never know when there is one that is just right for your needs, and may even be the exact position you have been looking for. 

The Importance of Maintaining Professionalism:

Although some might think becoming friendly with the interviewer is an easy way to get hired for that perfect job, quite the opposite is true. You want to remain professional and not attempt to sway the interviewer's position by being friendly instead of professional. You want to show your professional skills and training rather than to identify with the interviewer by talking about personal things. The discussion should focus on the job for which you are applying and why you are the most qualified person. The interviewer is likely to be seeing a number of people, so you do not want to take up his or her time talking about things that have nothing to do with the job.

The purpose of the interview is to find out if you are a good fit for the job and the company. In order for the interviewer to be able to do that you must remain professional and make certain the conversation is business-related. In regards to any personal questions the interviewer asks you want to answer only what he or she asks. If the question is whether you are married, the answer should be yes or no and not an autobiography of your married life. If the interviewer wanted to know how long you have been married and what your husband or wife does for a living, he would ask.

Make sure you do not provide any negative information on former employers. Even if your last supervisor was a real nasty person, do not mention that. It is not even necessary to mention that you left your last job because you were unhappy-all you need to say is you and the company were not a good fit. Many companies today are not providing information on the reason an employee left for legal reasons, so in most cases all they will know is your position and the dates you worked for the company. Do not go into any more details than necessary about former employers -stay with how long you were with the company and the job functions you performed. Certainly if you were the victim of downsizing you can state that but again, keep it brief and to the point leaving out any details unless the interviewer asks. Keep the interview professional and make sure your answers are right to the point without any unnecessary and un requested details provided.

Things To Consider When Identifying The Perfect Job:

During your process of identifying the perfect job, there are some things you may want to keep in mind. Although you are going to identify what is important to you it's also important to be realistic in your expectations. Some of the areas in which people tend to place the most focus and expect too much are listed below. Look at the items on your list and see how it compares to the items on this list.

Salary:

Salary is one of the biggest areas where people have a tendency to expect too much. They tend to think they are worth more than they really are to a new company, and that often causes them to lose the position. Be realistic when you identify your salary requirements, keeping in mind that now many employers are not hiring at all, so getting an interview gives you an edge over others.

Medical Insurance:

Although this is an area of major concern, it is also one that many people tend to overstate when identifying their perfect job. Very few employers today are paying the full cost of medical insurance, so to include that as an item on your list of criteria for the perfect job is ludicrous. What you need to do is rephrase it to state medical insurance at a reasonable cost.

Vacation and Sick Time:

Do not lump the two of these together because not all companies offer sick time. In fact some companies actually lump the two together and call it by various terms or they may include sick time as part of personal time or include both vacation and sick time as one item. You also don't want to expect to take vacation right away or have two weeks right away. Although some companies do allow two weeks vacation after six months, many companies still only offer one week during the first year.

Retirement Plan or 401K:

Many companies today are getting away from the retirement plan and staying with the 401K plan. This is reasonable to expect from your perfect job but do not attempt to identify what you expect from the plan since it is regulated by the government leaving the company itself very little leeway in what it can offer. The only difference you may find among companies is the funds they offer and percentage they contribute for each employee.

Where To Find The Perfect Job:

If you're seeking the perfect job, it's impossible to say exactly where you will find it. The key is to take your list of requirements and look at the available job postings, to find the closest match. You are not likely to find something that will match your list exactly, because most everyone tends to look for something more than what is potentially possible to find. 

Something you should remember when you are job seeking, is that less than 20% of jobs are listed in the newspaper. Most employers have a file of potential applicants, or look toward those who have the ambition to walk into their company, to drop off a resume and/or see a hiring manager. These are the people who have the highest potential for being hired, because they show the ambition for going after what they want. 

Of course job posting sites such as Monster.com are available, and many employers today make use of these sites when searching for new applicants. By filtering your search, you have a better chance of finding the job you seek, and seeing if it fits within the scope of your perfect job/the job you want, before you submit your resume. This method makes it convenient for the employer and job seeker, and allows both to see what is available, before they request an interview.

Hopefully you found this post informative and useful.

Heaven On Earth by Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Request: Describe your version of heaven on earth "MJ The Terrible". Marisa Tomlinson Atlantic City, New Jersey

Answer: Ok. Thank you for the request Marisa. Here is my description of what heaven on earth would look like. I decided to have some fun with this.......

On this beautiful island paradise, you can sit with your ass in the water, toes in the sand, not a worry in the world, and some kind of alcoholic beverage in your hand. Life is good everyday!

Located somewhere near Margaritaville, where the only rule of law, are party fouls. When they sing the song, "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" this island is what they are singing about. Where blood alcohol levels are high, and nobody feels low, where nothing or no one is judged, because every number looks like a 10, and no one remembers the scores anyway. Where everyday is summer and everyone are friends, or friends of friends, or a friend of friend, and everyone is friendly. Where there's a daily adult storytime, taught by "The Most Interesting Man In The World". Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came. Where tequila makes her clothes fall off, and her lips taste like Sangria, and randomly people yell "Shots!" and shots are consumed in waves, back and forth like you see at arenas and stadiums, when people are doing the wave.

I don't know if this is heaven on earth or not, but if what I described is wrong, I don't wanna be right!

Cheers! Salute! Prost! L'Chaim! Bottoms up!

All of my best, 

Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

2 Easy Ways To Find Unclaimed Money That May Be Owed To You by Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

The two links below can potentially help you to find unclaimed money, that may be owed to you. (Not a joke. I thought it might be a scam to, but I verified it, and even found  $331.90, that was owed to me. That may not be a million dollars, but it was definitely worth 10 minutes of my time to find and claim it.

These two websites keep track of money owed to people from unclaimed inheritance, overpaid medical claims, federal and state tax refunds, closed accounts/accounts you may have forgotten about, student loan refunds, child support back payments, overpaid bills, property tax overages, and on and on.

It is worth trying to see if you are owed anything. We hope you find enough money to make it worth your whole checking out the sites.

Good Idea Or Bad Idea To Name Your Business After The City You Live In? By Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Question: I was thinking about naming my business after the city I live in. Good idea or bad idea? Jim Spitzer from Portland, Oregon

Answer: Thank you for the question Jim. Unless your business is a location specific business, I wouldn't put the name of your city in the name of it. 

Regional names, like Bayou City Disposal Company, or Austin Electric, or something like that, limits what businesses can do outside of that area. 

That is why I like to use, and recommend using, universal names that don't limit you to being a regional business, like Microsoft, Oracle, Pepsi, Apple, Exxon, Masters of Money, Proctor and Gamble, Forex Investment Group, Universal Healthcare, etc. 

No one would know where they are located, unless someone looked them up. They could be located in Portland, Austin, Chicago, New York, or just about anywhere else in the world. 

Is it possible to name a business after a city, and still grow the business far beyond the cities limits? Sure it is, but business is more often times than not, a game of points. The more points you have/the more things you do right, the better off you are. 

I hope this helps you to make the best decision possible, for your business.

All of my best, 

Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson

Dear "MJ The Terrible" Haters,

I have had my feelings hurt. I have felt like I wasn't enough. I have been down. I have been broke. I have cried. I have screamed and yelled. I have been so frustrated that I didn't know what I was going to do. I have bled. I have lived in my car. I have almost died. I have been through hell. I have literally had to live through the quote- "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger".

I am just a regular guy. I am not the strongest, smartest, quickest, best looking, most well educated guy in the world, but I will tell you what I am. I am a guy who believes anything is possible. I am a guy who never gives up, and I am a guy who almost died/had to learn how to walk again/had to learn how to talk again, after suffering from a subdural hematoma rupture in my head.

Most importantly, I am a guy who stopped paying attention to you, because I realized that nomatter what you do, you only have power/influence over my life, if I let you.

You can delay me. You can frame me. You can discredit me. You can spread false and half truths. You can do any one of a number of things to slow me down, but YOU CAN'T STOP ME!

In closing- Haters, since apparently you haven't learned this lesson yet, let me help you out, so that you can quit wasting your time.....STOP BETTING AGAINST ME!

Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson's 23 Rules To Follow To Become Successful

I am so glad I didn't listen to all of the negative people in my life who said following my dreams was a stupid idea. Most of the time when I would try to share my hopes and dreams with someone, I would hear things like- "Michael's just visiting Fantasy Land again". I'm happy to report that "Fantasy Land" is a great place to live, and it is better than I could have ever imaged it to be!

"When you do the right things consistently, over a long enough period of time, you are positioning yourself to be in the right place, at the right time, when opportunity strikes." Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson - Founder & Owner - Masters of Money, LLC.

1. Limit mistakes. 

Instead of saying or doing the wrong thing, think first and then execute.

2. Make success a must. 

If you must do something, then you will think of a way to do it, nomatter what. 

3. Refuse to be outworked. 

Go early and stay late when you need to. 

4. Use proven strategies for success. 

Proven strategies come with proven odds for success. 

One of the fastest and most effective ways to succeed in life and in business, is to duplicate, not innovate. 

If their is a proven/high odds for success strategy that you can follow to get started or improve your results, to achieve success quicker and easier then what you are currently doing, do it! 

Proven formulas are called proven for a reason- They work! One of my favorite sayings is- “You can either be right or you can get paid.” Being right can be very expensive. Getting paid is very enjoyable.

By working smarter, not harder, you are more likely to achieve the success you want, and you are also more likely to achieve the success you want faster.

5. Learn from the people that are at where you want to be at in the future. 

6. Master the basics. 

Many of lifes and businesses most important moments, come down to the basic fundamentals. 

7. Improve your skill level whenever possible. 

Practice CANEI: Constant and never ending improvement 

8. Learn from your mistakes. 

We all make mistakes, but if we can learn from our mistakes, then we are turning negatives into positives. 

9. Focus. 

Having a single minded focus. Focusing on what you want day in and day out, keeps you moving in the direction of what you want. Anything worth doing, is worth focusing the majority of your time on. 

When you throw yourself completely into what you are doing, you are much more likely to experience a positive outcome. 

10. Communicate effectively. 

Try to keep all of your communication simple and to the point. Clear and concise communication, is more effective communication. 

11. Be open to change. 

Change is coming whether we like it or not, so get used to it, and see the possibilities, versus resisting it, and only seeing the negatives.

12. Always be professional.

Looking and acting in a professional manner, builds trust, respect credibility, and greatly improves your odds of success. 

13. Read every agreement, contract and document, before you sign it.

14. Don’t be ultra sensitive.                                               
No one likes having to walk around on eggshells, as they say. You may not agree with what someone says, and you may not like what someone says, but as long as the person isn't threatening you, or being inappropriately out of line, let it go. Because you don’t want to be the person everyone thinks is a problem. Nobody likes problems.

15. Don’t criticize others.                                        
Criticizing other people makes you look petty and intolerant. 

16. Drop the labels.                                                           
Get past black, white, republican, democrat, etc. Being able to work with people of varying backgrounds, is major strength. 

17. Don’t run your mouth.                                                    
It doesn’t pay to run your mouth. You can only get hurt by what you say if you put yourself out there as #1 best of all time at whatever. If you say you are the best and don’t prove it you will lose credibility instantly! 

18. Don’t talk behind people's backs.                           
This can only lead to trouble. I don’t care if it even feels right to talk about someone behind there back. 

19. Think before you speak.                                            
You have 2 ears and 1 mouth. Use them accordingly. Don’t blurt words out. Think it. Process it. Then speak it. This three step process will save you from putting your foot in your mouth. 

20. Don’t carry around past negative thoughts and experiences.                                                                         
Take the lessons from your past experiences, and leave the rest where it belongs, in the past. 

21. Mindset matters! 

We are all human beings. We are not robots. We all experience ups and downs from time to time. That said, if you stay focused on positive things, you will find more positive things in your life. 

22. Judge people by their actions. 

Don't judge people by what other people say about them. 

23. Don’t fight a battle you can't win/isn't worth winning.                                                 

Fighting losing battles/battles you can't win, even if you can/actually do win, is a waste of your time, energy and resources. Save your time, energy and resources for more important things. 

Bottom line: If you want something, make the decision to do it. Then go make it happen!

Sincerely,

Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson
