From Darkness to LIFE!

The Progressive Realization of My Idea, and Life.

The Attitude Shift…Mine Explained

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!

Humbling Parent Moment

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”!

The Darkness is Leaving!

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!

Tangible and Intangible Happiness

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!

It’s time For Your Awareness!

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 !

The Multitude of Habits Cycle

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.

Living With a Purpose!

I have always considered myself to be a good Father to my children. Today I learned another aspect of being a Father/Dad that I had been struggling with for quite a few years. I always thought that I struggled with the art of communication, but I learned differently today. My struggle has been the art of motivation or better yet guiding my children to achieve their vision or purpose for their life. I now have an understanding why there are so many struggling men and children in the world. If you are living your life without a definite and clear purpose. You are just living a life filled with constant struggles and lack of enthusiasm for life. As i sit here and think about my past, nothing that I was doing then has anything to do with my purpose for living.

Now my immediate task is to implement a plan first to change my own habits, and then seek to work with helping my children refocus on a vision or purpose for their lives. Then help them put together a plan that will help them succeed. Everyone has been brought into this world with a divine purpose. Goals are not a purpose! Goals are what guides us to our purpose for living.

My Paradigm Shift Week 2!

On September 30th I decided to fully commit to a Paradigm Shift for my life. So you ask what is a Paradigm? It is a multitude of habits. I had habits that lead my life to just a mere existence, and I was not happy. My life was based on the masses of my community, state, and our country.

So far my morning routine has changed, and that reflects how my day will evolve. I have read 3 books and a couple several times. I have begun to create a winning attitude for prosperity and success, spiritual, mental, and physical. I no longer focus on where I am. I am where I am! I now focus on what I want and where I want my life to go!

Yesterday I wrote my first  childrens book. The words just flowed with such ease. My wife said she has read it 3 times, and encourages me to write another. When one seriously commits to making a Paradigm Shift wonderful things begin to happen. My marriage has even taken on a new life!

My mentor Bob Proctor made a statement! God’s gift to us is more talent and ability that we will ever use in our lifetime! Our gift to God is to develop as much of that talent and ability as we can in this lifetime!

Where Will You End Up?

Take any group of 100 people at the start of their working career and follow them for 40 years until they reach retirement age and here’s what you’ll find, according to the Social Security Administration:

 

  • Only 1 will be wealthy
  • 4 will be financially secure
  • 5 will continue working, not because they want to but because they have to
  • 36 will be dead
  • 54 will be dead broke – dependent on the meager Social Security checks, relatives, friends and even charity for a minimum standard of living.

 That’s 5% successful, 95% unsuccessful.

All of my life I always wondered how my life would it up at the age of retirement. Picking up cans to survive. Waiting for the SS check in the mail. Now I have an idea of what could have happened!

There is a way to make solid changes and a new direction. I started making those changes a few weeks ago, I feel great! Bring it on!
