A Luna-tic Tip: “The Secret to Success in Life”


Here it is, folks, in paragraph one. The secret of success in life is to force yourself to leave your comfort zone. Think about it:

“I can’t find a job!”

- - - Move to Williston, North Dakota.

“I can’t find a nice girlfriend in any of the bars”

- - - Join a volunteer group where you’re all helping others for free.

“I hate it when my friends say I’m fat!”

- - - Follow Dr. Gott’s NO FLOUR NO SUGAR diet.

“My son’s in his 20s and refuses to leave home.”

- - - Hand him an application to work at McDonalds, and kick him out.

“We don’t have the money to send our kids to college.”

- - - Then see that they learn a trade, even if they must work for free.

“I want to write a book but I have no time!”

- - - Get up at 5 a.m. like I do. (Still alive at 85.)

“I don’t know what my purpose is in life!”

- - - Contact JJ Luna. (You won’t like the answer.)   =================================

  3. Mr. Luna, thank you for your post. I enjoy your posts like this. Please write more like this sir.

    I appreciate what you have written previously about solitude, and concerning finding my purpose in life:

    "If you decide to seek a star to guide you, the hardest part will be to begin the search with the
    conviction that you will follow where it leads."

    "The qualifications for asking are that you be honest, hungry, and humble. Here’s how it works: You pray directly to the creator of the heavens and Earth rather than to a
    virgin, a saint, or even to Jesus (who himself said he was only a mediator). By all means, send your
    request to the creator in the name of the Messiah if you consider yourself to be a Christian, but I’ve seen prayers answered by those who knew nothing about Jesus or the Bible."--JJ Luna

    Thank you for what you wrote!

    Gerald Celente writes, "For anything significant to change, you must lead yourself. But self-leadership cannot be bought, given, or imposed. It has to come from within. It means having the courage not to cower to power. The dignity to claim your rightful and sacred place on earth. To respect yourself, demand it of others and show respect to all who merit it … regardless of class or status. The integrity to keep and live by your word. And the passion to live a life of meaning and conviction; for your heart to feel what your mind knows."

    "Successful people have control over the time in their life. A shoemaker who owns his own shop gets up one morning and says, "I'm not opening". That's a successful guy."--The actor Rod Steiger

    The Oracle at Caieta, to Marcus Aurelius, "It’s up to you!”

    “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”-- Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

    “Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities."--Thomas Carlyle

    From a fortune cookie: “Prepare today for the demands of tomorrow. Plan your move.”

  4. Great suggestions! I've already followed some of your suggestions. I thought you advised someone against Williston? Have you changed your position on that? I'm ready to try your 2nd and 3rd suggestion by the way. Have a great day!
