Welcome! Lady Linda and I hope that everyone is well and safe, and enjoying some quality time with their family. We’re sending good thoughts to all of you. This week has been strange and wonderful all at the same time. We have a part-time housecleaning business that supplements our Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing business. And like many of our friends and followers, it is an uncertain time. We have been able to get a lot done in regard to working on products for our new gift shop on www.youreamazingandillproveit.com It is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. We hope soon to be able to have t-shirts, hats, etc. with the book cover printed on them.
Dealing with Hard Times Through an Inventor’s Eyes
Obviously, we’re all going through some really hard times. As Neal – The Crazy Inventor (That is my YouTube channel – check it out) anytime I’m going through hard times, I look back at other hard times to get reference points. These reference points give me ideas on how to deal with the present hard times.
Happy Wednesday! We hope all of you are healthy and safe. It is a crazy time to live, but you have to admit, it’s not boring. Last week we found out that another of the podcasts that I was honored to be a guest on was aired on February 24. This podcast is The Empowered Whistleblower with host Dawn Westmoreland. Dawn’s podcast discusses strategies to stand up to bullying and discrimination for adults and children. It was awesome to be on Dawn’s show – what a great fit for You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! Our tech guru Shane will be putting my podcast interviews together in video form so that we can share them on social media and through my websites.
Three weeks ago, on 2-26-20, in my blog entitled “Set Each Other Free”, I showed you two men fighting when finally, one man gets the other down. I then asked you who the winner was? The answer, according to a crazy inventor, is neither man. As long as the two men are trying to control the other, they spend all their time and energy trying to keep the other man down. This in turn holds both men down.
However, so far what I have shown you is only two men. What happens if you apply the theory to history and the different so-called great societies? If you go back 5,000 years you will find societies that were based on slavery (one man holding another down). Remember I have the aptitudes of an inventor so I am going to look at everything through the eyes of an inventor (well, a crazy inventor).
Welcome! Hope your week has gone as well as ours! We always like to tell you who is in the photo of the week. This is a photo taken when Lady Linda and I were married. The other young lady in the photo is Linda’s Aunt Louise (who was 88 at the time). She gave Linda away, since Linda’s Mom had gone to the spirit world before we met. It was another busy week at Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing (in case we haven’t mentioned before, this is our publishing company. It is the company that we published You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! through.).
As we told you last week, two of the podcasts that I was a guest on were aired – Be Awesome with Dr. Kristina Hallett and Heroes Like You with Joe Belliston. We want to thank Kristina and Joe for the honor of being a guest on their shows. Our tech guru, Shane will be creating videos of them so that we can share them in various ways, but he has been busy this week creating our Gift Shop on www.youreamazingandillproveit.com It is truly AMAZING! We did the final steps with him on Monday to get the Shop up and running and ready to take orders! At this point we have the book available in paperback, hard cover, and digital form, as well as two different styles of t-shirts. We will be adding more t-shirts and other products soon. If you have any ideas of products that you would like to see offered, please contact me.
Hi everyone. Hope you had an Amazing week. This past week has been a busy week for us, but first of all we would like to send out prayers to our friends in Nashville, TN that were hit by the tornado. Lady Linda has many friends in Nashville and she was so glad to see on Facebook that her friends were safe.
Two of my podcast interviews are airing this week. The Be Awesome podcast with Dr. Kristina Hallett aired Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Also, my interview on the Heroes Like You podcast with Joe Belliston will be aired on Thursday, 3-5-2020. As soon as we have links we’ll let you know.
Our tech guru Shane is working on a shopping cart for www.youreamazingandillproveit.com In the meantime we have the black t-shirt that we have had for awhile (There Are No Throw-Away People) and we just added a royal blue t-shirt that says You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! Also he will soon be adding two new videos to my Neal – The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel that I shot last week. Check it out and leave a comment – tell me I’m nuts! Let’s have fun!
Now for this week’s story:
As you already know I was born essentially blind. Because of this I had the rare privilege to get to know people by sensing their spirits rather than seeing their physical form. This ability to sense people’s spirits is the reason I know for a fact that people are good. People are really good.
Happy Wednesday! The young man in the photo above with his back to us (#4) calling for the ball, is our 9-year-old grandson Riley.
As you know I have the aptitudes of an inventor. Because of this I tend to see things a little differently. In You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!I show the reader that bullying hurts everyone involved, but it hurts the bully more than anyone else. The following example is not the example I use in the book, but for this blog it’s a great place to start.
I want you to picture two men fighting. They are really going at it punching, kicking, scratching, and biting. You name it, the two men are doing it in this vicious fight because they know the winner gets to control the other man. After some time one of the men is able to get the other man down on the ground and is sitting on him. The man on top has the other man pinned to the floor. He’s holding his arms and legs to the floor while he is sitting on him.
The question is, which of these men do you think is the winner? Is it the man on the bottom being held to the floor, or the man on top holding the other man to the floor?
Welcome. I hope everyone is doing well. The first thing I want to tell you is that the young man in the photo above is our 7-year-old grandson, Nathan.
Last Thursday I was a guest on The Empowered Whistleblower podcast with Dawn Westmoreland. On her podcast she discusses strategies with her guests to stand up to bullying and discrimination for adults and children, which was a perfect fit for You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! I had a great time and we will let you know when the podcast is aired and we have a link to it. In the meantime check out her podcast at https://www.mentalhealthnewsradionetwork.com/our-shows/the-empowered-whistleblower/
We are getting some views on our Science Proves God Exists video on my Neal – The Crazy Inventor channel on YouTube. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance yet and share it with everyone.
Our tech guru, Shane, is working hard. He has written a new book description for Amazon and is helping us with writing other items for advertising, as well as running our advertising campaigns. He is such a blessing – we really needed help in the marketing area. Go Shane!
Now for this week’s story:
Throughout our lives we are all going to be put into situations that are nerve-wracking and extremely difficult to handle. When these times happen what should we do? How do we go about handling the difficulty that’s about to come our way?
Finally, my Lady Linda and I have our Science Proves God Exists! (formerly Science vs God) YouTube video posted. Science Proves God Exists! literally proves there is a Higher Power. Please check it out at Neal – The Crazy Inventor. It literally proves that each and every one of us has something Amazing and Extremely important to bring to this world. Once you have watched Science Proves God Exists! please SHARE it with everyone. Our world needs to start celebrating all of our Amazing differences. Our differences are what makes us so incredible. You’re Amazing AndI’ll Prove It!
Tomorrow I will be a guest on Dawn Westmoreland’s podcast, The Empowered Whistleblower. She discusses strategies with her guests to stand up to bullying and discrimination for adults and children. This podcast offers tips on resiliency, overcoming, healing, and other guidance to empower listeners. I look forward to discussing my unique way of teaching positive self-esteem, through the eyes of an inventor, with Dawn.
The following is an excerpt from You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!
What does a tall, full, green leafy tree and a short, scrawny, scraggly tree have to do with you being Amazing? And, how would I use these two trees to prove You’re Amazing?
