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!
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!
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.
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!
For three and a half months I have had to crawl to get around my home. Where am I? I can now walk! I am starting from scratch and I have begun a process of rebuilding my financial future from but an idea. Many times the thought of no hope, guidance or direction is our fate. Well I have learned over the last couple of days that is not the case. Mankind often look for answers in the wrong place, and that is what I have done all of my life. The answers have always been within me all of my life. I like so many others have looked for answers to life’s questions outside of me, and that had led to many trails, but I am grateful for those trails. It is because of my gratitude for those trails that I now know where I am going!
To a life totally filled with happiness, joy, and whatever I desire out of life. What do I desire out of life? To go and admire towns, cities and distant lands, with my family. To help others as I have had others help me. To create memories that will last a lifetime. To find and enjoy the elusive security that I have longed to have. Will I get it without a doubt.
