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 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 !
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!
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!
Over the last few weeks I have been watching videos by Bob Proctor on paradigm shifts. I always wondered why I made some of my choices over the past years. After watching the first video, it started making a lot of since to me. The human mind is so amazing, yet so very vulnerable to outside stimuli. We are all so different, but all so much the same. No matter what race, creed, or sex. We all basically think the same. There are 7 free videos and I have made it a point to watch one a day, and will continue until I am satisfied that my multitude of habits have changed. I will know when my actions have changed. So far I have noticed some changes and it has only been about 3 weeks. I am amazed at how quickly things are happening.
I address my wife much differently then before. I even see a beauty in her that I have not seen in quite some time. I interact with my children differently, and my perspective on life’s situations has been great. All of these years I just existed, and did not realize it. All of these years I thought my life was moving forward, but I was just stuck in on pause. You know the get up and go to work, pay the bills routine. Then you stop and say what have I got to show for my life after all this time?
Well I now know how I got here and why I am here! It is like someone turned the light on and I can now see. Wow!
Now that I know why my life is where it is, change starts now. Today is the first day of the rest of my life, and I am the only one who can change it’s direction. I accept 100% responsibility for the direction in which my life has gone and will go! I truly understand that it has been my doing all alone and no one else. I have wanted to change many aspects of my life but I didn’t know how. I do now! I thought that I knew who Ivy Butler was, but I did not. I thought that I knew what I wanted, but I did not. I thought that I knew where I was going, but I did not! Today is the day that I discover everything about myself. I will determine my purpose, my goals, and lay a solid foundation for my future!
This is my declaration to myself.
