To Get More Vegans Accepted in Society

Yesterday, Neil Armstrong passed away at 82 years old. I don't know what the causes were. But that's not the point of this blog. Neil was the first born child of his family. He did what many first borns do, become successful in society. He loved science as a youngster. Went to college, studied Astronomy and became an astronaut. His success wasn't just with this. He got out there and pushed his cart. He wasn't the first one who thought about walking on the moon and being the first to do it. He was the first one to put this in action, plan it and do it.

Neil Armstrong has made history to be the first man and the first human to ever step foot on the moon! I will never forget that week, when we were glued to our TV set in July 1969, when Neil made that first step onto the crust of the moon and put that flag out. I'm sure that he was afraid, but failure wasn't an option! He was the first. There is nothing or no one to every replace that. His legacy will continue.

Bill Gates wasn't the first one to come up with the windows operating system. But he was the first one grab windows and push it! Get it legalized and make it a huge part of Microsoft. There are many things that Bill Gates pushed that had built this Microsoft Empire, before he stepped down as CEO.

Of course you heard of Google! Do you know of the two owners who are millionaires over this? Not surprisingly, neither do I. Once again, the search engine that does everything, was originally not their idea. Yahoo was already out and going. The reason why Google was more successful is that the owners pushed on having the everything search engine without a technical staff. They instead relied on the everyday people, like you and I, who used their search engine to help those who were stuck with technology, in their forums. They sold to big businesses with little overhead and became a success. We learned of and remembered Google because we found exactly what we needed their and it is fast. So did everyone's expression about it come up fast, Google it!

Jason Trout is not the first one to have a professional blog where bloggers get paid. But he is a pioneer in that he pushed his Good Blogs business, then is the first to have this site here, The Flaming Vegan for all of us to come and blog. Thank you, Jason.

So you're asking, where does all this lead us to? The best way to get Vegans more accounted for in this Society is to number one, write about it as we have been doing and to push the cart forward. I think the cookbooks and the videos are a very good way of going about this. And if you have an idea for Vegan business, it doesn't matter whether or not you were the first one to think of it. It matters that you push the cart and market it first. Get it legalized, copyrighted and patented, first. The same thing holds true for any vegan product that you want to sell. Another best way is to knock on Amazon's door about your own biography about being a Vegan. Write your books and ebooks about being a Vegan. Then you will be upping everything. Your heard when you're on Amazon and the NYC Best Seller list.

I love success and I love responding to comments.

      Thank you. I want people to see that whatever you believe in, in your life, take the cart and push it. Don't wait for someone else to do it for you. If you have a book or a video on the best sellers list you are heard and heard of. This goes a long way into getting Vegans more accepted in this Society.

    Nice Job Susan. Love this post. I was only six years old when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. Therefore, I was too young to remember any of this event. Vote #3. I will have to take this to heart and remember to work on this in whatever it is, that I want in my life. Again, thanks for the boost of confidence, and encouragement. Again, great post. Looking forward to more of what Jason is doing.

      Thank you. I was nine and that so far was the best year of my iife. I felt lifted when he took the step onto the crust of the moon. No doubt about it that Neil stepped forward into life coaching and mentoring Americans afterwards while paying forwards to Aeronomics. As well that he put his technology skills to work too. On Oprah, in the late 1980's Neil talked about the mentoring and the life coaching that he was doing...We already started building up their on the moon and we are using this as some of our energy resources on earth. Their is going to be the time when we have the option to move up there and live there. I don't think that this is going to be in my lifetime, but it is coming...However use these tools to advance yourself as well as to get the things that you believe in, recognized. I'm also looking forwards to what Jason is doing.

      Thank you Carolyn. We have a lot of good writers in this group, who live and support their cause. I also see a lot of good cooks here too where creating a Vegan Recipe book promotes all Vegans and the Vegan curious in this Society. Plus I think that the videos is a very good way to go about this too. Snakewitch, I have enjoyed your videos and learned a lot from them. The more you put out, the more the acceptance of Vegans is going to grow.

    Good way of thinking. I voted because so many people won't take the first step just because something is not yet big - even though it has been thought of already. Courage is needed, and this post definitely shows it to us! My new piece says that the Food Guide is hinting about dairy not being necesary in our diets. Check it out!

      Thank you. I have a BA in psychology. I remember that there is this theory, called Pro Social Behavior. During research, in a group of people, if someone looked like they were drowning in a pool, 80% of the group looked at each other at first, to see who was going to be first to dive in and save them, rather than just doing it. During the 30 or more seconds of hesitation of waiting for another person in the group to save them, the victim could have drowned. Pro Social Behavior theory teaches that you don't wait for the next person to do when it's something that you can do yourself, first. Save a life. Be the first to be a proadvocate. In terms of acceptance, be the first turn a few pages, make some videos. Don't wait for someone else to do it. Don't wait for someone else to make something big enough. Make the path and go for it yourself. And SnakeWitch, your doing good at this.

    Great blog. Unusual, broad-ranging subject matter. I love your pic as well - you designed it, you say? Can I ask, btw, is that a recent photo of you, by your bio text? Because, if it is, you really don't look old enough to remember Neil Armstrong on TV making his moon-landing! Maybe that is because of all your exercise and healthy diet! Plus a positive mental attitiude, which you clearly have. Talking of pioneering, I am writing a vegan book, a combination of recipes and lifestyle pieces, hope to get it published eventually. Writng for TFV is good experience for that! And I am very grateful too to Jason for creating this website.

      I'm 52. That photo was about 3 years ago when I was 49. I still have the same biceps and body build. Thanks for the compliment and stopping back to vote. Plus if anyone would like to make their own pics for their blogs, facebook, pinterest, twitter, video ect... you can create a free account at www.pizap.com and do it all there. Plus you can save your pics to your harddrive as well from your facebook account.
