We know that there is a lot of stuff that comes in your email inbox that is loaded with scams, and chances are if you haven’t been bitten by one, there’s a good chance that you will be, and it may take a couple of times of being scammed before you get a sense of what a scam looks like. Then there’s the other thing that rhymes with scam and that’s “spam,” which is junk emails, and spammy phone calls and text messages that have leaked over into the cell phone arena.
Telemarketers are able to sniff out your name, address, and phone number and can call you carrying on what appears to be a normal personal call from someone local (may also be using spoofing software which masks their caller ID with a local number) making is all so innocent until they get to the scam or sales pitch.
And if that’s not enough, they have artificial intelligence-equipped robot telemarketers which are pretty good at carrying on a conversation with you until they slip up with an off-the-wall reply. And you ask,
Aren’t there laws against scams?
Yes, there are, but they only apply to individuals and businesses who are physically located within the United States of America and its territories. There is no legal recourse against a scammer from outside the USA posing as a business located in the USA.
Why are there so many spam emails, texts, and calls?
The obvious answer is that it works. So, these conmen, psychopaths, and cybercriminals keep making up new scams to send to your email or call you about on your phone every day, and they will use names that you know and trust.
I don’t know how many times Dr. Oz and Oprah Winfrey have been contacted about products they have supposedly endorsed, that they know nothing about.
With so many people looking for work, right now, they are even posing as Fortune 500 companies looking for “legitimate” remote workers.
It Wasn’t Me!
Then, there is me. Since 2020, apparently, I have been contacting people offering 20-million-dollar grants for non-profit funding in exchange for a raft of personal information, a one-page description of how you will use the money to make the world a better place, and a $750 deposit, which will be refunded when they receive the $20 Million.
Sad to say, if you get that 20 million dollar offer from me, it is a scam using my name, photo, and Internet presence – NOT ME. They make the offer look credible because if you check it out online, it was based on an article I posted in 2016 (which has long since expired). The people who checked in with me prior to taking action on the scam came out ahead, while the others were out the $750 and probably were victims to identity theft.
All that to say,
Look before you leap.
If an offer appears to be too good to be true, check it out first, and the offer is connected to a recognizable company or celebrity, check it out first. Call the company or check with the celebrity. Of course, celebrities may be harder to get through, but chances are, if you do a quick Internet search for the celebrity and the offer, you will find clear evidence, or a blanket statement from the company or person cited as a sponsor or endorsement, that denies any connection to the offer.
A few minutes spent checking it out before you hit the buy now or send button, or prior to giving any information over the phone, will put you miles ahead of the scam. So, do that first.
You have been charged with living out your journey as a human being on this planet. Yes, you came as a divinely inspired being with a purpose, plan, and your own song to sing, but likely have lost sight of this through the process of living your life to the best of your cognizant abilities.
With every breath you take every step you make in every moment of your life it is up to you to decide to experience episodic
Drama or Dream
The Choice is Yours
Any time you feel poorly, when you feel slighted, misunderstood, shamed, ridiculed, threatened, or victimized, it is up to you whether you will see this feeling and the scene that follows play out as drama or dream, the choice is yours.
If you feel, for any reason, your life is one with consummate drama, you will respond to any ill feeling in a way which charges the impending scenario with negative energy which will play out in a dramatic scene. Your response will feel justified in the outset but will have you feeling worse once the scene has played itself out.
On the other hand, if you respond to ill feelings with love, love will find a way to turn the scenario in a more pleasing direction. The charge in the Bible’s Matthew 5:44 supports this advice divinely, “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”
This concept is nothing new and was previously noted in Proverbs 15:1 with, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Simple social science at work, even thousands of years ago.
Let’s face it,
Life is a bitch
More like a drunk ass
Life will throw all kinds of opportunities for you to choose drama or dream, it’s a bitch, or more like a drunk who’s had one too many, who is invading your space or pushing your buttons.
If a drunk bumps into you, causing you to spill your drink (chocolate milk), it’s up to you to make a decision. Will you put a negative spin on this, or will you approach the situation with love?
Your initial reaction would be to push the drunk back, and no one would blame you for asserting yourself in the defense of your personal space. When you look into the drunk’s eyes, you can see a lifetime of pain welling up which turns to rage, and now you’ve got a fight on your hands. The repercussions of which could tarry on for some time depending on how the fight goes.
How about the dream?
Or, when the drunk bumps into you, you can smile, put your hand on his should and say, “Whoa, Nelly! What happened to your sea legs, sailor?” As you look into the drunk’s eye, you can see a lifetime of pain. When he looks back at you, seeing eyes filled with love and you’re smiling at him, he feels loved, even for the slightest moment, and this simple gesture, you’re showing a bit of kindness, may be the bright spot in the drunk’s day (possibly his entire life). He might even offer to buy you another chocolate milk.
Does it work every time?
Though it may look like it doesn’t, or it may look like an utter failure at the outset, your kindness is remembered. It may take time and some other kindness shown by others to break through the thick walls which people who have experienced a great deal of pain in their life have built around their hearts to protect themselves from ever being hurt again.
So, they may respond inappropriately. They may reject your kindness.
Instead of being offended, maybe you could muster enough love in you to have compassion for someone in this condition. For God’s sake, don’t point out that you are aware of the drunk’s condition. Just remember that if it weren’t for God’s grace, you might be in the same place as the drunk.
Even if you do not see the immediate rewards for your benevolent act, it does work every time. After all, he’s doing the best he can with what he has, and aren’t all of us just doing the same?
Just love him and bless him as he makes it through another day. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day for, maybe not, but we are no better than he, for in our own ways, we can be a little reckless and bump into things in life which catch us by surprise, too.
It’s on you, whether you live your life in drama or dream by simply choosing love over defense.

Top 10 Reasons Relationships Fail
Desperate to save your precious dream, you explore all the challenges that caused your relationship to be compromised or fail. Therapeutic intervention dissects your relationship and all its flaws such as
lack of trust
These top 10 reasons that relationships fail are not why relationships fail, nor are any of the other so-called reasons; they are only treated as symptoms, while the underlying toxic disease continues to spread – not only in your relationship – but most relationships in the world.
The real reason why relationships fail is due to the spread of this dangerous disease which spreads like a viral wildfire. This toxin, left to itself will destroy and break down every love relationship we’re involved in, not just out romantic relationships. This viral disease leads to the failure and destruction of all kinds of relationships, including a significant other, family, mom, dad, brother, sister, children, coworkers, bosses and platonic friends.
All our relationships are at risk of being infected by this deadly disease, which is the real root cause of the death of any relationship.
The Truth: Why Relationships Fail
You might be surprised to discover there is only one reason that relationships fail. If you’re fervently seeking to find true love, you will never find it if you are infected with the toxic disease.
Wonder what the toxin is that will thwart any relationship you have and cause it to fall to pieces, no matter how you try to save it?
The name of the disease is
Yes, “love;” the definition of it, the concept of it and everything you believe about it, love is the disease.
Everything You Know About Love is Wrong?
You’ve been infected with the toxin which has spread more and more with every interaction you’ve had with other relationships as far back as you can remember (and before).
Your parents, society, the media and Disney have planted and spread the disease so pervasively that you couldn’t recognize true love if you saw it.
Join us for the
Awakening to True Love Workshop

Once you realize you have come on the planet with a purpose, that you are endowed with tremendous capacities, powers, and qualities, you have the unique opportunity to create a bright future, where all your aspirations and dreams come true. Endowed with the power of our minds, we live in a state of infinite possibilities and we have been fully equipped to live our highest potential.
Unlike our physical brain, our mind is one of the most powerful entities in the world bestowed upon us from above. Whether we are conscious of it or not, the power of the human mind can achieve anything and is an incalculable blessing above all other forms of life.
In retrospect, we know that where your life is today is based on the attitudes and choices that you have made in the past. Likewise, the attitudes and choices that you make today determine your future.
When you operate within the laws that govern all that is within this universe, are in harmony and alignment with your purpose, you can begin to realize that you are no longer a pawn in this game of life. Suddenly we no longer consider our life as a problem to be solved but rather as a mystery to be lived and celebrated.
You then can be empowered to take control over all aspects of your life, and how you experience them while enjoying your life’s journey. Once you discover, activate, express and promote your gifts, talents, skills and tend to your highest and best, you can attract the highest and best to you.
This new path can attract whatever you desire into your life. You will begin to see that anything is possible for you both professionally, and personally. Understanding your gifts and talents and how to use them every day allows you to be, do and have whatever you want. If you want a brighter future, think positive thoughts. See the future you desire in your mind’s eye; but don’t stop there. With the power of your imagination, engage all five senses in your visualization. Then prepare to experience your inspired life’s vision, by exploring and taking action at the appropriate times, to make it even better.
By taking a definitive, detailed, explicit approach to focusing on creating your future vision, immutable universal laws begin to attract the ideas, people and circumstances that are in harmony with your desire.
Sometimes, our current situation is the result of seeds that were planted in our past. It is often said, “What is past, is past,” but that is not all that there is to it, especially if we are hindered in any way by our history. It is also said that, “You cannot change the past.” Yet nothing can be further from the truth. We need not be shackled by our past. We can change the past by exercising imaging modalities, so that our past is congruent with our life’s mission and purpose further jettisoning us into our future life of abundance and prosperity.
When you master your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, you will master your life and your past will not predict your future, unless you allow it to.
David M. Masters is constantly uncovering better ways to help you become the very best you can be. He has the tools to get you from here – to where you want to be.
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” –Peter Drucker
Financial success may not be easy, but it is simple. Simply follow the principles of financial success and you will be the recipient of financial success. True and lasting success is rooted in taking pride in the value of our contributions to others, rather than taking pride in the value of our possessions.
Each and every one of us is endowed with a unique gift to share with other inhabitants of this planet. By determining your gift, embracing your talent and deploying your message to others, you experience harmony in fulfilling your purpose. One of the advantages of being a good steward of your gift(s) and talent(s) is prosperity, abundance and financial success.
Note that your focus should not be on prosperity, abundance and/or financial rewards, because if your intention is on these results, your outcome will lack the luster of properly motivated intention. If you focus on wealth, you can’t help but notice a lack of it… If your intention is wealth and your attention is on lack; you will receive more lack.
Instead, believe and receive all abundance. Do not question how it will appear, when it will appear, or what it will look like. Have faith that it will appear in the right time, place and manner. It will either appear when necessary, or as a surprise reward for your proper motivation. Focus on the, “giving,” based on the abundance you already have, and you will attract more abundance.
As we get better at allowing the good things that God has for us, all blessed things – including financial success – we get better at receiving in His time and proportions. This is a continual process that ranges from what we need – to what we desire. Prepare to receive the desires of your heart.
This is not to say that liars and thieves do not experience a form of prosperity, but this is limited, temporary and fleeting. In contrast, for those who take the moral high road with integrity, their abundance is unlimited, albeit limited only by their own self-limiting blockages.
David M. Masters has 30 years experience helping others determine what blockages and/or obstacles they may be keeping them from achieving financial success. He has the unique ability of helping them overcome them, or delete them entirely.
Isn’t it about time that you have…
1) a positive attitude about earning and having money
2) an effective strategy for achieving financial success
3) the commitment to fully implement your strategy
“My clients achieve unparalleled financial success because they have strength and honor. They know what it means to commit. They are committed to their success and fulfill their commitments.” says Masters, “They keep their word while managing their time, energy, and financial resources – and let nothing stand in their way.”
Become the person you were born to be. Attain financial success and great wealth in all areas of your life; health, relationships, interactions with others, business, career, attitude, mindset and financial freedom.
By empowering your unique gifts and delivering them as your gift to the world, you can raise your personal performance to its highest and best, placing you in the top ten percent of high-performance individuals on the planet.
Once you match your innate gift with the learned skill-set that launches the delivery of your message to the masses, your performance scale takes off, like a rocket. Shared skills include visualization, concentration, drive, risk taking, and goal setting. These skills are inherent in top performers in all talent categories including; sports, business and the arts.
By attaining the necessary skills to become your highest and best, you join the ranks of the highly evolved top ten percent of individuals who continually are becoming more successful, creative, and effective every day. Join the ranks of others who awaken to who they really are and discover how to enjoy the lifelong process of growing, loving, learning, evolving, sharing and serving others.
Developing these skills gives you the ability to better compete in the world. Whether you are an athlete, entrepreneur or artist, you will be able to better deliver your product, information or service by doing it…
Achieving what others cannot
With less personal exertion
Through self-assessment and analysis, one can increase their performance through understanding who you truly are, while understanding cognitive factors that impede motivation and success.
The world’s best and highest performers all have their own coaches, mentors and/or teams, why not you? This is about you, your potential and your success.
Whatever your goals, your dreams or aspirations David M. Masters will help you increase your performance, behavioral flexibility, and results by developing new thinking strategies while empowering you and your team.
Enter your team, the Master Mind
Your master mind group will consist of five powerful individuals who assist each other in pushing the limits of performance and possibility.
While master-minding one shares
skills and knowledge
identification of skills that increase performance
The result is empowering the champion within to achieve your highest and best with increased performance independently and continuously.
The most sought after state-of-mind is that of happiness. It is not uncommon for people to fill the void left by unfulfilled happiness with the mad-dash for keeping up with the Joneses, sexual promiscuity, obtaining the latest technological appliance, high-fashion apparel/accessories, cosmetic surgeries or attending expensive galas, all in the effort to achieve the elusive feeling of happiness.
If you’re like most people, you may be thinking that you’re unhappy but you don’t know why or what it is you want to do with your life!
You don’t seem to have a real gift and your life doesn’t appear to have a purpose, or lacks happiness.
Happiness is not determined by what you look like or how much money you have. True happiness is knowing that God created you with special gifts perfectly attributed to you.
If you are seeking true happiness and fulfillment in your life, you must discover your, “gift.” Only by determining your gift(s), embracing and empowering your gift will you experience true happiness.
The happiest people in life are those who center their careers and activities around their gifts. By doing so, they have attracted all of the ideas, resources, people and finances that were needed to create the lives of their dreams. They experience happiness and abundance by identifying their gift(s), believing in their vision, and masterfully progressing toward the attainment of their goals and desires.
What is that thing that you enjoy doing more than anything? You can do something better than anyone else, and to experience true happiness you must fulfill your responsibility to share your gift with the world.
If you feel as though you cannot afford to follow the passion of embracing your gift(s)… This is quite opposite from the truth. By embracing your gift, and sharing your gift with the world, the universe will bless you for fulfilling your life’s purpose. By giving your gift you can earn as much money as you will ever need and bring happiness on a scale you never imagined.
Your gift may not seem very amazing or very practical to you because it comes so easily to you. Be aware that your vision, or your style of communication, or the way you organize your life can become a gateway to your unique ability. Your gift can change the world, and it will change your world.
Luke 6:38…. “Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure pressed down shaken together to make room for more and running over. Whatever measure you use to give – large or small will be used to measure what is given back to you.”
Nothing is more important than your story; it is part of your reason for coming to this planet. Telling your story, in your unique voice, and sharing your life-message is an integral part to satisfying the design for your life.
For some, their life story is simply a documentation of your existence and interactions with others throughout this journey that we call, “life.” Whether your purpose for sharing this information if for generations to come, or just to share with family and friends, your story deserves to be told and preserved.
For others to whom it is important to share their unique message with like-minded people, or to challenge others with your controversial viewpoint, your life mission includes putting your ideas in print and making them available to all readers who dare peruse the pages of your thoughts.
Many people struggle with the idea of putting their thoughts, ideas, or experiences on paper… The idea of actually going to print may be overwhelming… and this cam lead to your work(s) not being shared.
