Visualize with me for a moment a car stuck in the mud. The harder the driver tries to get out. The deeper the car gets. That is what has been happening to the vast majority of people throughout history. Some people because they watched others got smart. When they got stuck they stopped, and waited for help to come. Some get help, but many others do not get out, because they lack the type of help needed to get themselves out. What they lack is the awareness of the right type of help needed.
Just siting here pondering on all of the years I had been stuck in life waiting for someone to show me how to progress to the life that I had always wanted. Just down right euphoria! All of the books that I have been reading were and have been in the library all these years. I was just not aware that they were there. All of the principles and concepts have been know about for centuries. I was not aware of this. Everything that ever was, and ever will be has always been here, but I was not aware. Everything to create a happy life, a happy marriage, and a happy family, career, etc. Is already here.
So the principle that is missing is simply this. To become aware!
I recorded an interview last week about an attitude shift that I made over 19 years ago. I added a post on my Facebook page about another attitude shift, and I was asked what was the shift about.
I became completely aware of the principle that our present world is a direct reflection, or a complete manifestation of what we think about everyday. The mind, not the brain is the most sophisticated and misunderstood area of our being. Think of a mirror, and not a trick mirror. The reflection that you see is what is! My mentor Earl Nightingale stated that, “we are the sum total of all of our thoughts from the last five years, and we will become the sum total of all of our present thoughts over the next five years”. I heard a friend say over 11 years ago and, I did not pay attention to his words. Junk in. Junk out! If life sucks, then it is because of what is going in the mind. I like to call it the filing cabinet in the mind. All thoughts will stay there until they are replaced!
Another aspect to my shift was the fact that I had not been planning out my life, because I was not thinking. Some will say we do think, but when you truly understand the real concept of thinking. We don’t think. It has been said that 2% think 3% think that they think, and 95% would rather die than think. All these years I have been in the 3%, and after reading and fully understanding this concept, an attitude shift was immediately needed!
Now comes the task of learning how to fully implement, and to create the new life, and the new brighter path in life that I desire to walk down. One filled with new thoughts, which creates new ideas, which creates the new results.
It is amazing what happens when you become aware!
Awareness is on my mind! So many benefit from the lack of human awareness, because I feel we fell to heed the warnings of, “you reap what you sow”. We are now trying to play catch up to fix or repair our lives. How many have said if I only knew then what I know now! The bottom line is to become “aware” of the tools and… resources necessary for change and prosperity. You get out what you put in! Prosperity or Junk?
To the youth! Don’t waste, or spend time putting in junk that will not benefit you later. Those of us that are older are fighting for our happiness, peace, and a harmonious life.
I don’t know how many times I had asked myself what in the heck is going on. I now know that everything that I have ever experienced in my lifetime is in a filing cabinet locked away in my subconscious mind, you should take time to learn about that, and the only way anything can effectively change is with patients, persistence, and most importantly “awareness”.
Everything about mankind’s existence hinders on awareness. The past, present, and the future. Health, wealth, happiness you name it! The natural law state that what you put in you must get back out. Ignorance of that law has hurt myself as well as the masses, and continue to do so.
Where is all of that stuff going into you may ask? It is going through the conscious mind, and being stored in that permanent filing cabinet of the subconscious mind. There lies the problem! The present life is the direct manifestation of all of those thoughts, images and ideas in that filing cabinet. You remember the divine law. You get back what you put in. You reap what you sow. Cause and effect. The mind plays no favorites, because the lawmaker is perfect, just, and fair!
Now I find this out!
As a parent there is always a question in the back of your mind about how well you are doing. There are times when you can see the results and there are times when you just have to wonder.
There is a humbling feeling to wake up in the morning to see a group of sleeping teens in your living room! Knowing that they just gathered together to spend an evening of wholesome moments together. This will be a good memory for them to know that they can make right choices even as a teenager!
I don’t know about you, but I am grateful to know that my home is considered a safe haven for “some”!
I feel that after many years of mental struggle that has led to both mental, and physical struggle. I feel that I have finally come to the understanding of how to explain the whys, whats, and the hows of family existence and growth.
I am so very grateful for my ability to gain, and acquire knowledge for both myself, and my fellow-man! I am grateful just to be!
Have you ever had a conversation with someone about an issue that they or yourself were having a problem changing, and the remark was, I know what to do or I know how to do it.
Well I heard a gentleman make a statement last week, and he said if you know how to do something why don’t you do it! He then paused and said, If you knew how to do it then you would do what it took to resolve the issue. I thought about what he said for a moment, and then he said, you don’t know how to resolve the issue because all you are focusing on is the issue and not the solution. Here is an example that faces many of us at this time. Debt!
I have been focusing so much on getting out of debt for so many years. I knew what I wanted, but I did not know how to achieve the desired results. It has consumed me. It has troubled me greatly. So instead of getting out of debt I was getting deeper into debt. So this week I have begun my journey to financial freedom and independence.
I have also begun to look at each issue individually and formulate the best PATH for change. My goal is to not utter the words “I know what to do again” if I am not physically doing what it takes to resolve the situation. Bottom line is that it takes ACTION!
Over the last few months I have been asking myself questions about what goes on around me that involves marriage, my children and people. The more I witness the more I dig for answers. Right now at this moment I am amazed at what goes on in the life of a human! I have been making notes striving to put it all together so that it makes sense to others. I have been studying about what science, experts, and scholars have known for ages. People are not truly aware of the “other” method or path that brings tangible and intangible happiness!
I have just started The Daddy-Man Awareness Movement, and I am striving to help individuals understand what makes them feel stuck, what holds them back, and what is needed to make a consistent long-term change. When you are aware you have more control of your life. Your eyes are opened and you can see life clearer. You have a desire to seek for and achieve all the abundance that life has to offer.
Time to now break those bonds !
Due to some recent revelations, and words of wisdom. I feel more focused and intent on not only making a change, but being the change!
I have had a lot of “why” questions answered, and gained a knowledge about the “how” questions. You know those “Why” this and “Why” that questions. Also the “How” to “How” come questions.
With the answers to these questions I have been able to make the changes as well as the corrections that I need in my life to move me forward personally and professionally.
This all stems from one word. That word is Persistence!
Something to think about today. I learned this principle from my mentor. If you are struggling with something that your child or children are doing, it is because of their multitude of habits. Now how did they develop their multitude of habits? Was it from you the parent? Was it from their peers? Habits don’t just appear. They grow! I now have an understanding of why my children struggle and have struggled.
Because of my multitude of habits, I have overlooked their growing multitude of habits. As I look back over the years there were a lot of signs that I missed, because of my multitude of habits. Nothing just appears out of nowhere! Just like a seed has to start from a beginning. So do habits. Bad or good.
He is an example. My wife and I just recently found out that our daughter has been smoking, and had sex. Where did we go wrong you ask? We developed a habit of ASSUMING that she would make good decisions. We developed habits of ASSUMING that the young ladies that she associated with had good moral values.
I could go on and on with this. It is because of our(her parents) developed multitude of habits we missed some very important signs.
Last point! If I develop a multitude of bad habits at work chances are I will get fired. My multitude of bad habits affect my children’s progress.
The good thing about all of this is that we can all change by making a Paradigm Shift. A Paradigm is a multitude of habits. It is because of my Paradigm Shift that we were able to find out what she had been doing, and that is why I know that it works and is worth it.
