Turn your life around with the New Year 2015!

It’s a choice… you can wake up happy or wake up mad and sad.  When you decide you want to be happy each day with control of your thoughts you CAN DO THIS!

You can grow, become a humanitarian and you can make the world a better place!  

Connecting The Dots in the Cosmic Cow Pie™ of life can be intensified by asking 3 questions a day™ and recording your answers with your behavior modification!

Ask yourself daily and change your behavior to be able to answer the 3 questions a day™.  Make it fun.  Have your friends or kids do it with you and share the joy of helping others and growing together.

1. Who was I nice to today?

2. What did I learn today?

3.  How was I better today than yesterday?

 3 Questions A Day™  is something to ask yourself as a reminder to continually think about growing as a member of humanity.  

1.  Who were you nice to today? 

How are you letting your light shine and making someone feel special?  People remember how you made them feel not what you said.  
Can you open the door or give a seat to someone in need.   Can you help someone in the post office who may not have enough money to send a package.  Can you listen to the people around you and hear what they are saying and offer to help in some way?  Do you know someone having a hard time and can you call them up and take them lunch or some cookies or a fruit basket?  Could you empty the dishwasher for a family member… anything that is kind of considerate… try to do something nice each day.  When people see you doing it.. they will want to do it so the ultimate pay it forward by just being nice!  You can change the world with your humanitarian actions.
2.  What did I learn today? 
This will keep you in a mode of expectation to continue learning.  It is hard to participate on the Internet and not learn something every single day… so just look it as fun and part of your continually growth.  Look at learning as your “happy place” a place of peace and joy a it is constant with adapting to the changes that are continually taking place today… then share what you learned with others in a cliff note format and again you are paying it forward in a wonderful and easy way!
3.  How am I better today than yesterday.
This will be an internal question that only you can answer and does not need to be shared with anyone but yourself.  This is the accountability that makes you become a better person by simply keeping track of your own actions and individual growth.  At check out time you will know that you did the best you could and were always trying to do better.
If you are looking for real peace or balance in your life it all starts with giving and growing… When you are thinking about others and giving of yourself you have something to be grateful for every single day and this keeps you on track for receiving the good that you give!  You will be showing the world the way to be kind and make a difference. You will be connecting the dots in the Cosmic Cow Pie™ of life.
What is your purpose and reason for being… if that question is something that you can’t answer, just start by giving, the message will unfold and become clear to you as you give.
Become a humanitarian by sharing your photos!  Learn how! 
Make the New Year 2015 a giving year and expect that that giving will make you happy because you are making the world a better place by the things you are doing!
We manifest what we believe…. what do you believe?

Wishing you 2015 Peace Monkey

Super Bowl 2014 What is John Elway Saying To the Broncos?

 

Super Bowl Sunday is February 2,2014.  What is John Elway saying to the Broncos?

The Denver Broncos are looking for their 3rd Super Bowl WIN!   The Preseason game with the Seattle Seahawks did not go well with a 10-40 loss.  John Elway was not a happy, franchise’s executive vice president of football operations and really told the team and the coaches what they needed to do.  That pre-season chat has played well through the season and we will see on Sunday if that focus is still lined up.

John Elway, the quarterback that led the Super Bowl win for the Denver Broncos two times has the same mindset as Peyton Manning.  They see the game from the same point of view, that of a quarterback.

Identity Theft On Social Media Profiles…Runs Rampant

Identify Theft has migrated over to social media profiles and is something everyone should be alert to. The concept is running rampant and should be on your radar when engaging in cyberspace!

Individuals participating in social media need to be watching for people and profiles that that don’t make sense. If you are managing your own social media accounts, you may know or have some relationship with people in your circles, followers, friends or connections.  Having a strategy of the people you connect with and engage with makes sense when trying to build a group of supporters for your business, product or service.  There is a saying…. if it waddles and it quacks, it’s a duck!  Don’t be fooled by Identity Theft of social media profiles.

3 simple questions to ask before you circle, follow or like someone:

  1. Is the profile or about page complete and do I relate to this person?
  2. What does their stream look like and what do they post?
  3. Why would I want to connect with this person?

Profile Identy Theft

When building your sphere of social influence, just adding numbers of followers/friends/circles for numbers sake is NOT the way to grow an “Organic” following.  The goal might be to have raving fans that appreciate the content you share over social media and then in turn add value for help with the new Hummingbird algorithm that Google has moved to for “Semantic Search.”    Selecting specific people that meet your guidelines will have you grow your business and share your same values.

All this comes back to who you are connecting with, keeping your eyes open and your 6th sense working for people who might not have your best interest at heart.   

On Tuesday, January 21 my identity was stolen on facebook and an individual was was posting as me adding all my friends as a new account.  He had taken my profile picture, my cover photo and several of my past photos along with my employment history and was acting as Carra Riley.  The name on the new account with my stolen identify was Carra Riley Riley.   The thief was smart as he used my name and put the middle name as Riley because when facebook shortens the name it shows Carra Riley with my profile so everyone thought it was me and had no idea it was identity theft of my profile.

At 6:15 am I was awakened by a call from Virgil Cowen a member of the Photo Tour Global Directory™ and photographer in Southern California.  He apologized for calling me so early but felt that I needed to know that someone had stolen my identity and was engaging with friends that had accepted him in private messages indicating he was from a government agency and had free Federal Grant money which would only be available by filling out a personal questionnaire.  Virgil was the first to let me know about the Identity theft of my social media profile on facebook by the name of Carra Riley Riley.   A big thank you goes out to Virgil Cowen for picking up the phone and letting me know so early.  It could have been 9:30 or 10 before I would have logged into facebook and many more friends might have been lured in by this fake social media profile of me.  If you see a fake profile or what looks like a fake profile trying to engage with you just pick up the phone and call your friend!  You could save them many hours of anxiety by getting right to work to stop the profile from engaging from the identity theft.

Tric Ortez is another facebook/social media friend from Florida and she was alerting me to this scam on instant messaging when I opened facebook.  She took the time to share a post on her “Tricnology” blog, the conversation that went on between the fake profile Carra Riley Riley and the end user of my facebook friend names Mr. Juwen Smith.  Yes, Smith might be the first clue in that conversation that the profile might not be legitimate among other things link spelling and grammar.  Tric, thank you for taking the time to share with screen shots your online experience.  We need a world of helpers watching our backs when we are engaging in cyberspace.  

The feeling of helplessness is overwhelming when you see your picture and someone posing as you, writing bizarre things on the internet to friends that you know.

Immediately a post went up on the facebook account indicating to friends that there had been an identity theft of my profile using my picture and the name Carra Riley Riley and not to friend this person.

block directions

The process to terminate a false identity on facebook has to commence from the person who has experienced the identify theft.  Friends of the person with the stolen identity profile ALSO need to REPORT the fake profile FIRST and then block once they have realized the Identity Theft has taken place.  The process is identified with screen shots below.

The stolen social media profile starts friending all of the original profiles friends.  The friends think that the person is starting a new account as they recognize the stolen profile picture and maybe event the cover photo from the friends page.  Without thinking sometimes friends will accept the new friendship request and that is when the direct messaging starts with the request for information for the free money or a link to something special which can sometime connect to a phishing scheme.

Step 1.

FAKE profile asks to friend you.  

1 Friend request from Carra Riley Riley

The steps to follow to Get facebook to CLOSE this fake account… the first thing you will see is a new request from Carra Riley as a friend.. the first clue is the name Carra Riley Riley There are 2 Rileys.. this is very sneaky as when you go through the process further they just use her name without the middle Riley and you might think it is Carra. What you are going to do is OPEN THE ACCOUNT to be able to report it.. don’t block it from here or they account will not be closed by FB REORT FIRST then BLOCK after reporting!

Step 2.

2. Open profile and see what friends they have friended.. make a list.  See he has event taken the work history and school

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OPEN THE ACCOUNT by clicking on the name Carra Riley Riley… it will not hurt you our your account. The fake account will look like her cover photo, her photos from albums and her background.. so it does look like Carra Riley… but it is NOT…… This is the False Identity of Carra Riley Riley

Step 3.

8 go to timeline and it looks like me with the name Carra Riley

Once you open the fake Carra Riley Riley account go to the “gear” on the right and click the drop down menu to Report and or Block The content looks like it is Carra Riley as the middle Riley is deleted when you look at the time line.

Step 4. 

12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you click on Report and/or Block This Person the drop down menu comes up and you need to click Submit a Report and then click Report Carra Riley’s account.. Remember you are reporting the FAKE Carra Riley Riley account but again it looks like her with the name. Just make sure you are on the Carra Riley Riley profile.

Step 5.

13  must say friend and click my name

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is very important you tell facebook that this profile is pretending to be someone you know. Be sure to find the real account Carra Riley in the auto populate area so facebook knows the real Carra Riley has had Identity Theft with her profile.

Step 6.

14 send messag to CR

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then screen comes up to let the REAL Carra Riley know you turned the fake profile in.

Step 7.

16 now Block

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOW go back to the Fake Carra Riley Riley profile and click Report/Block again so you can BLOCK the fake profile. You do this AFTER you have reported the identity theft.

Step 8. 

17 now block Carra Riley Riley

BLOCK Carra Riley Riley and you will be done with this Fake profile account..

Once facebook has processed the claim from YOU the person who is being impersonated AND your friends have also reported the fake profile the stolen identity account will be deleted from facebook!

Carra Riley Riley account terminated

Feel free to share this to help with awareness of the New Identify Theft on social media profiles. Be sure to watch all your accounts on Twitter, Google+ etc. and think before friending, circling or liking new accounts!

Remember when someone has photos like this on their profile account and it seems too good to be true…. it’s too good to be true..

Money on Juwen Smith profile

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Watch out for the Juwen Smith profile on facebook who is promising the free government money.

Should  you experience Social Media Identity Theft and your friends accept the fake profile friendship, send those friends a private message or mention to them on your stream the fake profile has friended them and what they need to do to REPORT the fraud and then block them.  Big thanks to Chris Riedel from  Chicago Title in Lake Havasu City, Arizona for sharing that tip with me and posting on his facebook to let our mutual friends know about the identity theft.  It was easy to go on the fake profile and capture the names of the 46 friends that had friended him the day before.

As the Cosmic Shift Happens™  you may want to read about how subtle the scams are and how easy it is to be sucked into a trap.  Being careful and taking a step back before acting will help keep you from experiencing SMS or Social Media Syndrome™.  Keeping a good positive attitude when strange things happen will help you to create balance in the Cosmic Cow Pie™ of life!

Identity theft on social media profiles is rampant so think about what you are reading from someone you know and question if things make sense before acting.
