MY 2016 VIRILY BIO

Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity unto everyone and everything. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of the universe and all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.

    • Thank you, Carol, for expressing your view on this enigmatic topic, I would indeed be the last one under the sun, to disagree with you, because, writing what I want to write is very definitely me as well. Regards, Andre’

  1. I think we should keep a balance between duty and pleasure, because we’re humans, not robots, after all. We need to find enjoyment in what we make. 🙂
    I think the majority of influential people does both.
    Then we must make sure our content will be as enjoyable.
    And that’s when I look down on those marketing gurus that spend hours explaining how to make sales, while all it takes is one statement: put yourself in other people’s shoes.
    Would you buy what you’re selling, the way you’re promoting it? That’s it.
    Sure, not all people are the same and some study is required for that matter, but I believe it’s a very simple science. We can also create demand out of nothing, I doubt following a trend is the only way to get seen. Trends don’t appear out of nothing, what if we start them ourselves? 😃

    • That comment hooked me completely! WOW!, WOW!,
      Where do I sign up for what you’ve got? I’ll take the whole shebang!
      This is what cut’s to the heart: “And that’s when I look down on those marketing gurus that spend hours explaining how to make sales, while all it takes is one statement: put yourself in other people’s shoes.
      Would you buy what you’re selling, the way you’re promoting it? That’s it.
      And then I need to Quote you here again: “And that’s when I look down on those marketing gurus that spend hours explaining how to make sales, while all it takes is one statement: put yourself in other people’s shoes.
      Would you buy what you’re selling, the way you’re promoting it? That’s it. Regards, Andre’

    • Hey, Abhishek, Never lose the striving, when you reach for a star, you may not quite get them, but you won’t come up with a handful of mud either.” ~ Leo Burnett

      And here is another truism:
      “And now, the end is near, And so I face the final curtain. My friend, I’ll say it clear. I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain, I’ve lived a life that’s full, I’ve traveled each and every highway
      And more, much more than this, I did it my way.

      Regrets, I’ve had a few But then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do. And saw it through without exemption I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway. And more, much more than this, I did it my way.

      Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew When I bit off more than I could chew But through it all when there was doubt I ate it up and spit it out I faced it all and I stood tall And did it my way.

      I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
      And now, as tears subside I find it all, all so amusing. To think I did all that And may I say, not in a shy way Oh no, no, not me, I did it my way.

      For what is man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught
      To say the things he truly feels And not the words of one who kneels
      The record shows I took the blows And did it my way. ~ Frank Sinatra.

    • Hello Doc, I’ve known you for but a short while but, how long does it take to see someone? I know, your heart leads straight home my friend.
      Even though like in Mister Holland’s Opus, you are a versatile writer on a great many subjects, I see you describing your own country roads, and blue ridge mountains, ever so much clearer.
      Memories are all we take with us after this brief and wondrous life and when we share them with our loved ones, they have a kind of rippling effect, much like the memories, your articles paint on the canvases of our minds. Regards, Andre’

    • Hi, Deepitzzaguy, my research into finding out if society liked the Internet and if so, why that is. Well, back In 2014, 78 percent thought it was a good thing because people like yourself, sharing useful information with them.

      Sometime later, polls found, that more people can’t actually decide if the internet is good or bad, oh, well that’s life. The truth is, the Internet is great for many things, like helping people stay in touch, spreading vital information and easing the burden of everyday tasks, like shopping or paying the bills. So, why am I telling you all of this? well, the Internet tells no one anything, because it merely shares information it gets from great people like you, who share what they feel would benefit others. Regards, Andre’
