The Pearl Of Wisdom

Having a great day with Michael The Traveling Trucker. Music, family and lots of food.

Today I give you a poem, Authur unknown.



There once was an oster, Whose story I tell, Who found that some sand, Had got into his shell. It was only a grain, But it gave him great pain.

For oysters have feelings, Although they’re so plain. Now, did he berate the harsh workings of fate that had brought him to such a deplorable state.

Did he curse at the government, cry for election, and claim that the sea should have given him protection?

No- he said to himself as he lay on a shell, Since I cannot remove it, I shall try to improve it. Now years have rolled around, As the years always do, And he came to his ultimate Destiny–stew.

And the small grain of sand that had bothered him so was a beautiful pearl all richly aglow. Now the tale has a moral; for isn’t it grand, what a oyster can do with a morsal of sand.

What couldn’t we do, if we’d only begin with some the things that get under our skin.


So what gets under your skin, Dear Reader? Being a full time driver- what gets under my skins is how people have no reguard for a 53 foot tractor/trailer weighing 79,000 LBS going 65 miles per hour and cut in front of me at the last second expecting me to stop within a short distance. Ain’t happening, sorry.

Finding balance between digital consumption, mindset, and quiet time is key. Having an inner peace plan—and working on it every day—is a good way to ensure you reach your goal. Most of the world would never think about giving itself a mental health day, being mindful of it’s quality of life, and being still.

Not everything that causes us stress can be eliminated—nor should it. Low-level stress stimulates the brain to boost productivity and concentrattion. It can also be a big motivator to make changes, solve problems, or accomplish goals.

Beware of peace pickpockets.

You encounter all kinds of people and situations that try to steal your serenity.

Rethink your “should do” and “ought to do” lists.

If the voice in your head is guilting you into doing things that don’t bring you joy, regard these as prime candidates to delete.

Give yourself a quality-of-life checkup.

It’s wise to periodically assess whether you’re satisfied with the quality of your life. If you don’t feel fulfilled, ponder what changes are in order. I hope you ponder on these for a while. Let them sink into your spirit, soul, and body.

Make changes That Bring You Joy, Peace, And Tranquility

One Step Two Step

Greetings and Salutation from Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today I am looking at an exercise program that has helped many men and women. Let’s do this together and get fit and trim.



Royal Canadian Air Force Exercise Plans Program. This is just plain fun. Two plans were created by Dr. Bill Orban in the late 1950’s for the Royal Canadian Air Force  . The 5BX plan (Five Basic Exercises) was developed for men; a corresponding program was developed for women under the name XBX (Ten Basic Exercises) and the two plans were subsequently published together as one book, which was republished in 2016.

5BX Plan: Stretching-sit-up- back extension-push-up- running in place. A walk or run may be substituted for the final exercise; the distances to be covered and the time to be taken are also specified in the plan.

For a boost on your health along with the exercise, Click Here.

The first four exercises are primarily for flexibility; exercises 5-9 are primarily to improve muscle strength; and exercise 10 is to develop aerobic capacity:

Toe touching, Knee raising, Lateral bending, Arm circling, Chest and leg raising, Side leg raising, Push-ups, Leg lifting, Running and jumping in place.

The idea is that you perform these exercises for only 11 minutes a day to achieve a reasonably high level of fitness. There are targets/chart levels to aim for, (based upon age) and once you have reached your personal target, you only have to perform the exercises 3 times a week to maintain your level of fitness.

Here is the complete list of age based targets. 

Age GroupChartLevel
Champion Athletes6Any Level
When first looking at these exercises, it seems quite fanciful to suggest that anyone can get fit by just doing what initially appears to be so little. Try them for a week and you will see that Dr. Orban knew what he was talking about.
How To Begin:

Check your daily schedule and determine the time most convenient for you to do the exercises. It should be the same time each day.
Here are some suggested times:
before breakfast;
late morning or afternoon, at your place of employment;
after your regular recreational period;
in the evening just before you retire.
Regardless of the time you choose START TODAY

Maximum Rate of Progression through the Charts According to Age

20 years or under, at least 1 day at each level
20-29 years, at least 2 days at each level
30-39 years, at least 4 days at each level
40-49 years, at least 7 days at each level
50-59 years, at least 8 days at each level
60 years and over, at least 10 days at each level

If you feel stiff or sore, or if you are unduly breathless at any time, ease up and slow down your rate or progression. This is particularly applicable to the older age groups.

What Causes Belly Fat

Hello Everyone Michael The Traveling Trucker is searching for the answers to hard question.


There are many reasons why people gain belly fat, including poor diet, lack of exercise, and stress. Improving nutrition, increasing activity, and making other lifestyle changes can help people lose belly fat.

Overall Help: Click Here.

What is Leptin? Leptin is a hormone your body releases that helps it maintain your normal weight on a long-term basis. The level of leptin in your blood is directly related to how much body fat you have. Leptin resistance causes you to feel hungry and eat more even though your body has enough fat stores.

What is Ghrelin? Ghrelin is the hunger hormone. When empty, your stomach produces ghrelin, causing the hormone’s levels to rise in your bloodstream. This effect signals to your brain that you need to eat, triggering hunger. 

Ghrelin vs. Leptin

One way to remember the difference between these two hormones is to associate the “g” in the word “ghrelin” with the “g” in “greatens” and the “l” in “leptin” with the “l” in “lessens.” In short: Ghrelin greatens your appetite. Leptin lessens your appetite.

Belly fat refers to fat around the abdomen. There are two types of belly fat: Visceral and subcutaneous-Health complications from visceral fat are typically more harmful than having subcutaneous fat.

It’s important to point this out upfront: You can’t pick and choose where you lose weight on your body. When it comes to your midsection, it’s a good idea to think beyond crunches and planks and adopt a well-rounded approach. “It’s got to be more losing fat as a whole”.

Accept that your behaviors will adjust.

A big part of weight loss is simply being aware of the decisions you’re making.

Foods That Keep You Fuller Longer: Foods high in fiber, healthy fats, and protein help you feel fuller longer and stabilize your sugar and energy levels. For example, steel-cut oats are rich in insoluble fiber, meaning they absorb water and expand in your stomach, making you feel fuller. Legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas) are another great example, as they are high in fiber and have a low glycemic index (foods that help stabilize blood sugar).

There must be a commitment on your part to BALANCE your total body transfirmation. Yes it will take work. 3 -15 minute workouts can make the difference. Start by walking, you can add light cardio, light weight traning. Have you tried rope training, platform jumping ( not to high).

Remember, Anything you do, any change you make is a great beginning. I believe in you, READER. Ask for help from some professional ( personal trainers). Set a specific amount of time to reach your goal. Some will lose faster than others because of our body types. Do what you can each day, then look at the transformed person in the mirror and say” WELL DONE”.

    Health Can Be Complicated

    Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker with great NEWS!

    Health is a concern for most people. Do I excerise, eat healthy foods, stop drinking sodas? What types of vitamins and minerals do I take?


    Here are my tips for improving your health while taking your vitamins and minerais. Enjoy the read and put those tips into practice.

    If you want to boost your health and wellbeing, We can help. Click Here.

    When it comes to knowing what’s healthy, even qualified experts
    often seem to hold opposing opinions.

    This one is most important-Limit sugary drinks.

    Eat nuts and seeds.Nuts and seeds are incredibly nutritious.
    They are packed with protein, fiber, and a variety of vitamins and minerals.
    Avoid ultra-processed foods.

    Don’t fear coffee.It’s rich in antioxidants, and some studies have
    linked coffee intake to longevity. We all want to live longer, right? So get out those steaming cups of JAVA.

    Eat fatty fish
    Fish is a great source of high-quality protein and healthy fat.

    Get enough sleep. Most of us don’t get the sleep and rest we need.
    Poor sleep can drive insulin resistance, can disrupt your appetite
    hormones, and reduce your physical and mental performance.

    Feed your gut bacteria. The bacteria in your gut, collectively called the
    gut microbiota are incredibly important for overall health.
    A disruption in gut bacteria is linked to some chronic diseases,
    including obesity and a myriad of digestive problems.

    Stay hydrated.

    Don’t eat heavily charred meats.

    Avoid bright lights before sleep.When you’re exposed to bright lights —
    which contain blue light wavelengths — in the evening, it may disrupt
    your production of the sleep hormone melatonin.

    Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

    Eat adequate protein.

    Get moving. According to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans,
    we should strive for at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity each week.

    Tips To Managing Your Money

    Managing your money effectively is essential for financial stability and success.
    Here’s a step-by-step tips guide to help you in managing your money:


    Set Financial Goals: Determine your short-term and long-term financial objectives. Keep a record of all your goals where you can see them daily.
    Whether it’s saving for a vacation, buying a house, or retiring comfortably, having clear goals will guide your financial decisions.

    Create a Budget: Track your income and expenses to understand where your money is going. You will be surprised how much unrecorded money you spend.
    Allocate funds for necessities like housing, food, utilities, transportation, debt payments, and savings. Budgeting tools or apps will help you stay organized.

    Track Spending: Monitor your spending regularly to ensure you’re sticking to your budget. If you don’t do this step, you will never truly know where your money is going. Identify areas where you can cut back to free up more money for savings or debt repayment.

    Build an Emergency Fund: Set aside money in a separate account to cover unexpected expenses. $1000 is a good start, for medical bills, car repairs, or job loss. Aim to save at least three to six months’ worth
    of living expenses.

    Pay Off Debt: Prioritize paying off high-interest debt like credit cards or personal loans.Once a credit card is paid off, get rid of it.
    Use strategies like the debt snowball (paying off the smallest debts first) or the debt avalanche (paying off the highest-interest debts first) to accelerate your debt repayment.

    Save for the Future: Contribute to retirement accounts like 401(k)s or IRAs to build wealth for your future. Take advantage of employer matching contributions if available.
    Additionally, save for other financial goals like buying a home, starting a business, or funding education.

    Invest Wisely: Educate yourself about different investment options such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and real estate. CD’s are a great fit. Consider your risk tolerance, time horizon, and financial goals when selecting investments. Diversify your portfolio to reduce risk.

    Stay Financially Educated: Continuously educate yourself about personal finance topics like investing, budgeting, and retirement planning. Attend workshops, read books, listen to podcasts, or follow reputable financial experts to stay informed.

    Review and Adjust: Regularly review your financial situation and adjust your goals and strategies as needed.This will help you more than you know. Keep good records. Life circumstances and financial priorities may change over time, so it’s important to stay flexible and adapt your plan accordingly.

    Seek Professional Help When Needed: If you’re unsure about managing your finances or need assistance with complex financial matters like tax planning or estate planning, consider working with a financial advisor or planner who can provide personalized guidance. Do your home work and ONLY work with someone whom you trust.

    By following these steps and staying disciplined with your financial habits, you can effectively manage your money and work towards achieving your financial goals.

    Working Your Business Daily

    It Begins With You

    Greetings and Salutations from Michael The Traveling Trucker. Let me remind you that in your world EVERYTHING begins and ends with you. I know this puts a lot of pressure on some, It’s OK. You were built to succeed.


    I hear you ask where do I start. My response is have you written your dreams down on paper? Have you decided what type of online business you want to pursue? Do you have money set aside to fund your business-monthly? Have you done your due diligence in researching companys you might want to work with?

    How much time can you afford toward your business? Will you make a commitment for at least 1 year? A good business idea may seem hard to come by, but with some planning and preparation, you can easily launch a small business to supplement your income — or become your own full-time boss.

    Your business should be cheap to start. Maybe you only need to purchase a website domain. The best small business ideas are based online and can be carried out from your personal computer.

    Nothing draws clients to you faster than the power of social proof — the phenomenon by which others look for external clues to your credibility. If you build a reputation as an expert in your field. This can be by writing articles, creating videos. doing workshops. You’re far more likely to make people excited to collaborate if you’re perceived as interesting.

    Winning business is hard, but it gets a lot easier if clients are seeking you out. By building a public reputation, power mapping your way to coveted clients, mitigating perceived risk and making yourself interesting to be around, you’re taking a major step toward attracting the business you want.

    Don’t Forget About Branding Your Business. The definition of a brand is a name or a term, a design or a symbol, or some other feature that distinguishes an organization or a product from its competitors. The keys to branding your business begin and end with who you serve!

    The right story for your business is never just about the product — the widget. It’s about the deeper story beneath the product, the company, and the team. Within each of us is an obstacle to overcome, and that is the raw material of your story. Once you connect to that story, you’ve set the stage for your team, your business, your revenues to go through the roof. 

    Great Leadership comes down to one thing… great casting! Don’t cast yourself in the wrong role! Don’t cast them in the wrong role! 

    Will you play the part the world needs you to play?

    What would the play of your life look like?

    Sharing The Responsibilty

    Greetings from Michael The Traveling Trucker. How do you share the resposibility for successful communication?


    The process of communication isn’t complete without both speaker and a audience. Speakers can send messages, but if the listeners don’t do their part by listening and providing feedback, the process is incomplete.

    The last webinar you listened to was who and what was the topic? Effective listening benefits both speakers and audience members. By listening before the speech, the speaker can pick up the audiences needs. Great speakers have this trait before each webinar by opening up the room early.

    There are four types of listening. content, critical, empathic, and appreciative listening. Content listening helps you understand the speakers message. Critical listening helps you both undertsand and evaluate the meaning of the message. Empathic listening helps you understand the speakers feelings and viewpoint. Appreciative listening helps you enjoy the speakers message and delivery.

    The five factors of listening are: attending, interpreting, remembering, evaluating, and responding. We all must have these skills if we are to move forward in our businesses. This should help you in all areas of your life.

    In our business world we have two people who do an outstanding job on presenting webinars. Rob Gehring and Janet Legere. These leaders fill our hearts and minds with practical teaching which should be put into your businesses immediately.

    We all have a part in the big picture so learn these skills and perfect them over time. Do you believe you could do a webinar? If your answer is yes, have you done one. If no is your answer, why not? Pick a topic, research it, then show your findings. Easy peasy.

    I have not done one yet. I have a vast video collection on Youtube, which goes with my blogs.

    Have you heard of the Wow app? It’s a place to learn, grow and teach others in business. I invite you to join me. Click here.

    If you are looking for a home based business I also invite you to join me.Click Here.

    Everything we do is people helping people with respect and understanding See why we are growing and making money weekly and monthly.

    Listening is a big part of every conversation
