Jim Rohn

One day my mentor Mr. Shoaff said, “Jim, if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.”

Since that time I’ve been working on my own personal development. And I must admit that this has been the most challenging assignment of all. This business of personal development lasts a lifetime.

You see, what you become is far more important than what you get. The important question to ask on the job is not, “What am I getting?” Instead, you should ask, “What am I becoming?” Getting and becoming are like Siamese twins: What you become directly influences what you get. Think of it this way: Most of what you have today you have attracted by becoming the person you are today.

I’ve also found that income rarely exceeds personal development. Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle.

If someone hands you a million dollars, you’d better hurry up and become a millionaire. A very rich man once said, “If you took all the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, it would soon be back in the same pockets it was before.”

It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.

So here’s the great axiom of life:

To have more than you’ve got, become more than you are.

This is where you should focus most of your attention. Otherwise, you just might have to contend with the axiom of not changing, which is:

Unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you’ve got.

Hey folks I am writing this article to send you a very important message. Internet Security Alert 2010 is fake antivirus removal software. Do not and I repeat do not click on this popup or try to x out of it, if you do it will download a software that will infect your computer. To avoid, do an immediate Alt Ctrl delete which will open up task manager and end this task. Trust me I know what I am talking about because I was a victim of this plague, and suffered the consequences of it. On January 19th I was surfing the net looking for some information and this popup came up, some how I realized this message was not legit, and was unaware of the consequences when I tried to X out of it, and that’s when disaster occurred!!! It immediately started to download in my computer and that’s where all hell broke loose!! My computer was now infected with this disease that was now working its way in to my C drive and automatically saving itself as an application program file.

Extremely hard to remove, it uses Rootkit, an application which will mimic, in this case  my Microsoft files, and found a way to hide itself in my computer. It is extremely intelligent, and once implanted, it has the ability to update it self and cause further Chaos!!!  I tried doing systems restore to an earlier date, but it was too late, this infection was already taking control of my computer. At this point I knew I needed to talk to a professional and decided to call Microsoft. When you first call you will get a message directing you to their website Safety.Live.Com and they will run a scan on your system files, so I did just that.  In most cases this scan will pick out and remove spyware and other threats to your system.

Unfortunately in my case this scan did not work because the infection found a way to hide in my system, as I said before it is constantly updated it self all the time. I knew now I needed to talk to tech support at Microsoft: http://safety.live.com and called them back. After explaining the situation to them they immediately responded to my needs and started to work on the problem. Believe it or not, it took us 10 hours on the first day to remove the Internet Security Alert 2010 virus, like I  said earlier, this virus has a mind of its own and continues to update itself like any viral infection or a flu virus. After dealing with that issue my technician Richard soon discovered another infection, this one was preventing me from getting Internet Access. Having been a long day we decided to call it quits. This new infection would have to be dealt with on the following day. We are now into day two and five hours later the other infection has been removed.  It took a total of 15 hours altogether to get my computer up and running free of all infections.

Thank you Richard

Great job!!!
