We hope that the following article may be informative, helpful and perhaps even inspirational to your e-zine readers, or on your web site. If it helps others "out there" in cyberspace in any way, then we're very happy. This article (as with all my articles) may be freely published, electronically or in print.

"We share what we know, so that we all may grow."


"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man
to use the Internet and he won't bother you for months...or
perhaps even years! (Sorry men... however, I presume this
principle also applies to our women-folk!)."

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
- Walt Disney

I truly believe each one of us has a unique talent or gift (or
for those lucky ones, numerous talents or gifts - that's not me!)
something unique to offer the world.

"Each one of us has been uniquely created by God and within
each of us, we have certain special "instincts" or "natural
tendencies/strengths/inclinations" towards certain things.
When you learn to trust and rightly apply your instinct, that
is when your uniqueness will shine through. You will have no
competition. You will attract those people that just need and
love your service or products. There are ways you can develop
to let more of your natural strengths to shine through in
your business." (and in your LIFE).

I fully agree with those fine and wise words by an anonymous
author (please let me know, if you know who, so I can give
him/her credit).

The KEY, I believe, is finding then fulfilling your unique
talents, so that you can set out on your unique pathway in
life: to touch other lives and make a difference, any difference.

So let's mobilise the amazing power and scope of the Internet to build
a better world through making a DIFFERENCE: by sharing and giving
something of ourselves.

I see the WWW as an amazingly positive invention in today's
fast-moving technological society. The net is not just a
playground of "perverts and porn artists preying on innocent
children", as thought by many concerned (and "ignorant") parents
in the "real world". From my "rather humble and
technologically-challenged perspective", I truly believe that we
are at the forefront of one of the most innovative and far
reaching inventions in human history.

The net is the most cost-efficient , INSTANTANEOUS, EXCITING and effective way of marketing products and services around the globe through modern telecommunications, as well as being a tool to
influence people around the globe with POSITIVE CONTRIBUTIONS. We live in one of the most exciting times in human history; so
exploit the AMAZING POWER of the Internet to reach hundreds of
thousands of people and perhaps even millions around the world.
Use your creative energies and imagination to the fullest, by
thinking of new ideas of how to help others and make their lives
easier through marketing your particular products. (Incidentally,
I keep a notebook by my bedside and leave to my creative
subconscious mind just before I go to sleep... and I often wake
up with new ideas in the morning.)

No matter where you may live on this planet, cyberspace can
produce income to so many "budding entrepreneurs" . The www gives 'ordinary people' without much capital, like you and I, a great
BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY: the opportunity of self employment by
reaching out to a GLOBAL market-place. As I see it, each one of
us has a unique responsibility to ourselves, and our families. It
is up to each one of us to reach out and help many people around
the world through being innovative and original in sharing our ideas...
and the money we earn from selling our array of unique products
can be used for many good purposes, like perhaps even helping
others achieve their dreams. In doing that, we will be leaving a legacy
for our time on this planet, as well as making the most use of our unique "God-given abilities.

"Our talents are our gifts from God, our Creator; but what we DO
with our talents are our gifts TO God.



Craig Lock ("Incorrigible Encourager, People-builder and Infopreneur")

PS: "We can all use the internet to reach out to the "global
community" and build a better world in this new "Information
Revolution" that is upon us. Let's use it wisely, respect our
diversity and unique cultures; but celebrate a new world in
union. One where, like your founding forefathers in America, you
can first celebrate the Independence Day of the strong burning
creative spirit that is within you. If set alight, it is one that
will make your personal VISION of the future a REALITY and
perhaps even your DESTINY."
- Craig Lock

"Success to others may be apparent in what you DO; but
significance, meaning and purpose lies, then reveals itself
in what you ARE and BECOME down the 'river of life' - how
and the spirit with which you face, then overcome the daily
obstacles, the frequent trials and tribulations along the
often rocky path-way of life's magical and mysterious
journey. Light your path brightly."

" I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into
'so-called humdrum little lives'. You don't just have to be
the choreorapher, or the conductor of your life script -
rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day)
be. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul,
that flows through the spirit of God. So don't spend your
days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and
playing your unique tunes of music right now."

About the author:
Craig is a writer and "internet pioneer" (or "infopreneur"), who believes in sharing information with "dashes" of humour, as well as encouraging and helping others to find their talents and gifts, to strive for and accomplish their dreams in life - whatever they may be.

"In our own little ways in our individual lives we, each one of us can touch the lives of others and in so doing illuminate the hearts and minds of humanity. We must offer a compelling alternate vision for the world: a bright future of justice, tolerance (even "tolerance of intolerance"), respect for other traditions and values and especially a vision of hope fuelled by the flame of love - one that banishes the fanatical ideology of intolerance and hatred to the darkness from which it emerged."
- Craig Lock (inspired by and adapted from the words of Abdurahman Wahid, former President of Indonesia)

"Our Greatest Good is perhaps not to share our material possessions, our money and 'riches' with others, but through faith in other people, to so lay the foundation to reveal the rich treasure that lies within themselves."
