Using The Law Of Attraction

I’m going to talk about how to use the Law of Attraction and why some people say it doesn’t work. To begin, let’s get an understanding of the Law of Attraction. It’s simple, whatever you are thinking is what you attract. In the Bible, Galatians 6:7 states, “You reap what you sow.” If you are sowing good seeds (thoughts) you will reap (attract) good things.

If you want a better life, make the life you want to live your predominant thought. Your brain is working all the time. You are constantly putting out thoughts. Even now, while you are reading this, you are putting out thoughts.

Think And Attract

Most people do not pay attention to their thoughts. In turn, their lives become the result of those random thoughts. The life I’m living today is a result of the thoughts I had in the past. My future will be shaped by the thoughts I’m having now. By controlling my thoughts I can determine the life I live in the future.

Do you know anyone who is always complaining? Their lives never seem to get better. In contrast, other people always have good fortune. Everything falls in place for them. They are the people you never hear complain. The bottom line is you can control your thoughts or be a slave to your thoughts. The choice is yours.

Steps To Use The Law Of Attraction

These are the steps on how to use the Law of Attraction. First, understand that we all live in an unlimited universe. You are part of and connected to the universe. The universe has to give you what you are thinking about if you believe it, can see it in your mind, and it feels natural to you.

Decide What You Want

The second step is to decide what you want. Do you want a better job? How about a new car or house? Would you like wealth and be financially free? Maybe it’s time to settle down and start a family. Whatever it is you decide, believe that you can obtain it.

Visualize

Third, picture what you want. Visualize your desire. Meditate and see yourself as if it has already happened. See your friends congratulating you on the new job. Drive your car and live in your house in your mind. Picture yourself paying off that last debt.

The best way to visualize what you desire is to create a vision board. Put pictures on your board of the things you desire. Put your vision board in a place where you can look at it several times a day. Burn those photos into your mind.

Verbalize

Fourth, you are going to ask the Universe/God for what you desire. Verbalize and put emotions to your desires. Create a statement of what you want and what you will sacrifice to get it. Write what you will do to obtain it and put an end date on it. Read this statement twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Always fall asleep thinking of your desire.

Don’t Worry

Fifth, release all worries about how or when you will achieve your desire. The Law of Attraction will show you how to get what you want. You will attract that knowledge. It takes time to develop the belief and get to the point where it feels real and natural. Don’t worry if nothing happens right away.

Why People Fail

Most people fail to attract the life they want to live due to a lack of patience. We live in a fast-food society, and everybody wants it right now. Develop patience and persevere. Nothing can stop your desire from manifesting except yourself. One negative thought can erase and rewind all of your work to the beginning.

Seeds

Think of the universe as fertile ground. The Law of Attraction says you will receive what you plant. Each thought is like a seed. In nature, a seed is dropped on the ground in the ground goes to work enveloping the seed. The soil nurtures the seed until it begins to transform and grow roots.

The soil provides food for the seed, and the plant emerges from the top of the seed. It works its way up until it breaks through the soil. The soil sustains the plant through its lifecycle. The seed doesn’t have to do anything. It has little control over the timing.

Middle Class

I grew up in a middle-class family. We lived a very middle-class lifestyle. Therefore, I could never see myself living any other way. Those were the thoughts that I put out, and that’s what the Law of Attraction gave me. Now I can live whatever lifestyle I choose because I know how to use the Law of Attraction.

I believe most people would like to be wealthy but do not believe that they can ever achieve it. By knowing how to use the Law of Attraction and developing a habit of following the steps above, you can have anything you desire. Be patient and persevere because it does take time to develop belief and turn your belief into faith.

Thoughts

I hope you enjoyed this article on how to use the Law of Attraction. If you’ve ever used the Law of Attraction to manifest something in your life, leave a comment. Don’t forget to like, follow, and join my email list. I am very grateful for every one of you.

Building A Mastermind Group For Success

I’m continuing my posts based on the 13 steps for acquiring wealth. Napoleon Hill, in his book, Think and Grow Rich, discussed the 13 common steps successful men used to acquire their wealth. Today, I’m going to talk about developing a mastermind group with specialized knowledge. This is the fourth step for acquiring wealth or accomplishing your goals. Learn about the importance of building a mastermind group for success.

Success Through Building Mastermind Groups

There are two types of knowledge, general and specialized. General knowledge is of little use in accomplishing anything. It’s great to have, but it won’t get you anywhere towards accomplishing your goals. Specialized knowledge is organized and intelligently directed through practical plans of action. Knowledge is not power but only potential power. Knowledge becomes power when it is organized and directed.

The U.S. Educational System

Hill believed that our educational system is flawed. It gives students knowledge but never teaches them how to organize and use that knowledge. For example, many college graduates don’t work in their field of study. They spend four years gaining knowledge which most is of little use to them.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not against education. I’m glad that I went to college and that my two daughters are currently attending universities. The knowledge that we learned has made us better people. That being said the truth is, I was never taught how to use that knowledge to accomplish something.

Specialized Knowledge

This is why it is important to develop a mastermind group with specialized knowledge. Most people have general knowledge and ideas. What they lack is the specialized knowledge to turn their ideas into money. For example, an inventor knows how to build things but doesn’t know how to market or sell what they’ve built. They don’t know how to manage employees or of potential legal issues. Building a mastermind group for success is crucial.

How can they overcome these obstacles and lack of knowledge? They form a mastermind group and bring in people with the specialized knowledge they lack. They can use that knowledge and organize it into a definite plan of action. Their next step is to go to work.

https://unsplash.com/@josiah123

5 Steps

They can continue to add on to their mastermind group by finding others with specialized knowledge they can put to use. Successful people don’t stop acquiring specialized knowledge. I love to learn both general and specialized knowledge. Learning keeps me alive, and I’ll only stop learning when I die.

To be successful in acquiring wealth or accomplishing a goal, you need to:

  1. Form a team. Look for and find like-minded people with the specialized knowledge that you don’t have;
  2. Work together towards a definite purpose;
  3. Organize the specialized knowledge and put it to use;
  4. Form practical plans for accomplishing your definite purpose;
  5. Put action to your plans, and work in harmony.

Follow the above steps, build a mastermind group for success, and you will get closer to your goals every day.

Develop Your Mastermind Group With Specialize Knowledge

Developing a mastermind group with specialized knowledge is just one of the steps on your journey to success. Don’t try to take your journey alone. No one knows everything; successful people become so as a team. Write down the knowledge that you do not have and begin looking for people with specialized knowledge. Develop your mastermind group and do something great.

Do you have a team you are working with? Do you believe that mastermind groups are necessary for success? Leave a comment below and let me know. If you enjoyed this podcast don’t forget to like and follow.

The True Meaning Of Failure

What is the true meaning of failure? What happens to you when you fail? In this article, I want to talk about failure and most importantly quitting. There is a distinction between the two. As you commence the process of changing your life, you should know the difference.

Get A Printable and An Editable Planner For Free. The Planner Includes A Gratitude Pad And Journaling Pages. Also A 12 Month Fillable Calendar.

Meaning Of Failure

Failure is defined as a lack of success, the omission of expected or required action. Quitting is defined as giving up or admitting defeat. These definitions are subjective. I believe the true meaning of failure is when you quit.

Failure is acceptable and should be encouraged. It is a way for you to learn and move forward. Failure will show you your mistakes. Learn what you did wrong and how to correct it on the next attempt. Continue your attempts until you get it right. Quitting is not acceptable. No one ever learned anything from quitting.

Everyone Experiences Failure

To be successful in anything, you must develop a habit of winning. Hall of Fame basketball player Michael Jordan said, “If you quit once, it becomes a habit. Never quit!” The late, great football coach Vince Lombardi stated, “Winning is a habit, unfortunately so is losing.” Quitting is losing, and that is the true meaning of failure.

I’m sure Vince Lombardi failed at some point in his life. I know he did not win every game. Michael Jordan took the game-winning shot 26 times and missed. He missed more than 9000 shots and lost 300 games. He failed over and over, and that’s why he succeeded in life. They might have failed, but they never quit.

Quitting

Quitting comes from a weak mind. Developing a strong mindset is the best prevention for quitting. Understand that you will have failures in life. Learn to embrace your failures and not use them as an excuse to quit.

true-meaning-failure-tiles-learn-from-failure
https://unsplash.com/@brett_jordan

When you decide to change something in your life, you will experience a phenomenon called resistance. Your brain is wired to keep you safe. It doesn’t like change or stepping outside your comfort zone. You can experience resistance in the form of procrastination, excuses, rationalization, and lack of knowledge. All people with creative minds, artists and writers, have experienced resistance.

Part Of The Process

A strong mind will conquer resistance. You will fail, but you will not quit. Understand that failure is part of the process. Failure is temporary. It will teach you how to succeed. Quitting is permanent. It becomes easier and easier to do, and it will stop all growth. As long as you don’t quit you will never truly fail. The true meaning of failure is quitting.

When people quit after a setback or series of setbacks, it is usually right before they break through. They were just about to learn something that would keep them going. When a seed is planted in the ground, it struggles to become a plant. Imagine if seeds would quit right before they break through the soil. We would have no food.

Techniques

You will need to develop a strong mind. You will strengthen your mind just like you develop your body; through exercises. Begin habits of positive self-talk, meditation, visualization, belief, and faith.

Focus on WHY you started. What was the reason you decided to improve your life? Your WHY has to be big and emotional; your health, family, or personal reasons. If it’s big enough, you will go through setback after setback but never quit.

Another great way to avoid quitting is to not go through the process of change alone. Find a team of like-minded people. Go through the process together, helping each other. If one person is experiencing setbacks, the others will lift them. It is easier to quit on yourself than it is to quit on the team.

Positive Self Talk

Positive self talk is used to transmit your thoughts from your conscious to your subconscious mind. This is a technique used to obtain the life you want to live. In season 2 episode 3 of my podcast, Lessons Learnt, I give you 5 techniques to use positive self talk or autosuggestion.

Get A Printable and An Editable Planner For Free. The Planner Includes A Gratitude Pad And Journaling Pages. Also A 12 Month Fillable Calendar.

Self Talk

My book for January is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. It’s a fascinating book written in the 1930s. Hill devoted 25 years of his life and spoke with 500 successful and wealthy men. He discovered 13 steps all the men had in common and used to obtain their wealth. This is my second time reading this book. Hill says it takes three times to understand the content. Also, you must faithfully complete the exercises he lays out to get the most out of the book. In this chapter, he writes about 5 techniques for using autosuggestion to obtain what you desire.

The Positive Autosuggestion Bridge

Autosuggestion is the third step to obtaining what you desire. I wrote about steps one and two, Desire and Faith, in my last two blog posts. When talking about positive self talk, you must understand your conscious and subconscious mind works. All suggestions and self-administered stimuli reach your mind through your five senses. Autosuggestion becomes a bridge between your conscious and subconscious mind. Your dominating thoughts are in your conscious mind. By using autosuggestion or positive affirmations, they will move into your subconscious mind and influence you into action.

Five Senses

Everything you perceive through your five senses is stopped by your conscious mind. Your conscious mind has the power to pass these perceptions to your subconscious mind. It also can reject them. The conscious mind cannot differentiate between positive and negative perceptions. Whatever thoughts are dominating your conscious mind will be passed to your subconscious mind.

positive-self-talk-sign-ivy-journey-1000-miles-single-step
https://unsplash.com/@hesterqiang

You have complete control of what enters your subconscious mind. Whether your thoughts are positive thoughts or negative thoughts. You can control the type of thought you want to allow into your subconscious mind. Think of your thoughts like seeds. Positive thoughts will grow positive results (flowers). On the other hand, negative thoughts will produce negative results (weeds).

Five Techniques

The five techniques for using positive self talk are:

  1. Write down a statement of what you desire and when you want to have it. Next, write down what you are willing to give up and your plan for obtaining it.
  2. Read your statement aloud twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed.
  3. Close your eyes and see yourself having what you desire.
  4. Feel the emotions that you will feel when you obtain it.
  5. Have faith that everything you wrote in your statement will come true.

Emotions

By feeling the emotions of having what you desire you will communicate your desire directly to your subconscious mind. Closing your eyes and seeing yourself in possession of your desire, along with feeling the emotions, will eventually give you the spirit of faith. Go back and read my blog post to understand the importance of faith. Without faith, your statement is just words. The reason most people fail to obtain their desires; they never develop faith.

Faith Is Your Strongest Emotion

These 5 techniques for using autosuggestion are necessary to get what you desire. You are applying the principle of autosuggestion. Faith is your strongest emotion; your subconscious mind will act upon your faith. It is normal to be skeptical whenever you are approached with a new idea. It sounds too easy but the power of autosuggestion will turn your skepticism into belief. Eventually, your belief will turn into faith.

You are the master of your destiny. You and only you determine the life you want to live. The dominating thoughts in your conscious mind passed through to your subconscious mind determines your actions. In turn, your actions will determine your reality. If you want to change your life, it can happen with these 5 techniques for using autosuggestion.

Final Thoughts

As always, if you enjoyed reading this post like, follow, and comment. Let me know if you have ever used these five techniques for autosuggestion. If you want to make a change or need any help, send me an email, and we can set up a time for a call. You can check out my courses at the link above.

The Power Of Giving Thanks

The power of giving thanks is enormous. Once you have decided you want a better life, begin to give thanks for everything. Begin a habit of giving thanks every morning and throughout your day. Soon you will see how powerful a simple thing like gratitude can be.

To get what you want in life, you must appreciate and give thanks for what you have. You cannot expect a better life if you are not appreciative of the life you have been given. Do not complain about your current situation. Experience the power of giving thanks for everything you have.

Learning About The Power Of Giving Thanks

I have two daughters who are about to graduate from college or “Uni,” as it is referred to in other countries. I like the term “Uni” and wish we used it here. Anyway, my oldest daughter attends the University of Central Florida and will graduate in December. My youngest attends the University of Alabama and will graduate next May.

Both daughters need new cars. My oldest is driving the car we bought her when she was in high school. My youngest is driving one of my hand-me-downs. They both describe their cars as junk and POS. I have told them that is the wrong way to go about the situation. They will not get a better car if they are not thankful for the car that they have.

Give Thanks

Be thankful always. No matter what your situation. You will not change it by complaining. If you don’t live in the nicest house, give thanks. You have a roof over your head. If you are drowning in debt, give thanks. There are ways to pay off debt.

I begin each morning tapping into the power of giving thanks. When I wake up, I say I am thankful for yesterday. No matter if it was a good day or a bad day. I am thankful for today and the possibilities a new day brings. I then begin every morning writing 10 things I am thankful for in a gratitude pad.

A Rough Patch

No matter what your current situation is, give thanks because you are blessed. You are here and have the opportunity to change your situation. As you learn to give thanks, you will be blessed, and your situation will change.

Back in February, I went through a rough patch. I began experiencing many negative things happening in my life. I have written about them in previous blogs. Despite all the bad things that were happening, I gave thanks. I knew that it was just another challenge that God or the universe was putting me through.

Now I am being blessed far above the turmoil that I went through. I continued to be grateful for my situation and think positive thoughts. I changed my circumstances through the power of giving thanks and was rewarded.

Ask God

What circumstances are you going through? Find peace in knowing you can improve your situation. Give thanks for your present life and everything that you have. Ask God or the universe for whatever you want. Believe it will happen. See the life that you want in your mind as real. Feel what it will be like living that life. Continue to do this every day until you develop faith.

Will it be easy? No. You will have to conquer the fears and doubts that come along with change. You must develop patience and persevere to overcome. Patience is a virtue. With patience and perseverance comes faith. Faith defeats all fears and doubts. Once you have faith you will understand the power of giving thanks.

The Meaning Of Faith In Your Journey

I hope everyone is doing well and off to a good start on your journey to a new you. Today is a good time to talk about the meaning of faith in your journey. Faith takes time to grow within you, therefore, I feel this information will be helpful in your journey to success. Never underestimate the importance of having faith.

My wife and I have been together for 30 years and are happier than ever. Here are some tips on how we keep our relationship fresh and exciting. Get your FREE Relationship Tips Today!

The Meaning Of Faith

Whatever it is that you want to achieve, to be successful you need faith. For example, if you desire to acquire wealth, you must have faith that it will happen because most people do not become financially independent overnight. You have to believe that it is going to happen at some time. You have to see the amount of money you desire in your mind.

There are two parts to the mind, the conscious and the subconscious. The subconscious mind is more powerful and can translate your thoughts into reality. If you are thinking positive thoughts, positive things will come to you. On the other hand, if you are thinking negative thoughts continually, you will get the negative things you are thinking of. For example, a person who is struggling with money talks about their debt and bills. Consequently, they acquire more debt.

Faith And Your Thoughts

Once you add faith to positive thoughts, your subconscious mind transmits it to the universe. Without faith, that transmission is blocked. Simply saying and thinking positive thoughts is not enough. You must add faith to your daily affirmations. Know that it is coming. Feel the emotions you will have when you receive it. Do not worry about the timing. Just know that it is on its way. Faith opens up the direct line of communication between God and us.

The meaning of faith in your journey is important. Faith will help you get what you desire. Your first step is to decide what you want. Once you decide, make it your definite purpose. Develop a burning desire to obtain it. Mix in faith and know that you already have what you want. Close your eyes and see yourself in possession of whatever it is you want. Do not worry about how you are going to obtain it. The subconscious mind will show you the plans for achieving success.

meaning-faith-your-journey-branch-writing-faith-can-move-mountains
https://unsplash.com/@mrsrachelmcdermott

Developing Faith

How does one go about developing faith? Thomas Aquinas said, “To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” This quote shows how difficult it is to describe faith. Faith is not tangible; you cannot point to it. It is something you have or you do not have. You develop faith through the repetition of affirmations daily. These affirmations will cross from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind. The more you repeat them, the more you believe. In time you will voluntarily develop an emotion of faith.

Emotion

By adding emotion, for example, happy or grateful, to your thoughts and combining with faith, those thoughts begin to translate to your desires through action. Thinking and saying, “by July 1, 2025, I am happy that I earn $10,000 monthly,” your subconscious mind will start showing you a plan to achieve the money. It is up to you to recognize those plans and put them into action.

As I said above in paragraph three, and it bears repeating, your thoughts are transferred to your subconscious mind causing great things to happen. As a word of warning, there is a negative counterpart. If you are constantly speaking and thinking negatively, these thoughts will bring negative things to you.

Final Thoughts

As I wrap this up, if you want to change your current situation and live a better life, keep these two statements in mind. A positive mind becomes a home for faith. A negative mind becomes a home for fear. Faith and fear cannot exist in the same place. Live your life by faith.

I hope this article about the meaning of faith in your journey will be helpful to you. Are you living by faith or by fear? Do not forget to like, follow, and comment.

10 Ignore Negativity Quotes

I would like to eliminate all negativity in my life. Unfortunately, that is not possible and might not be possible for you. Therefore, you have to learn to ignore negativity you cannot eliminate.

“Negative people can only infest you with discouragements when they find you around. Just get lost and be saved.”
~ Israelmore Ayivor

What I’m talking about here is negativity that comes from family or coworkers. You might find that you cannot cut these people out of your life. You have to keep seeing them, and when you do, they will spread their negativity around you. Ignore negativity coming from these people. I have included 10 ignore negativity quotes to help you.

5 Tips To Ignore Negativity

You can use these 10 ignore negativity quotes to help you live a more positive life. Negativity in your life will hold you back and keep you from reaching your full potential. Your life will improve once you learn to eliminate or ignore negativity. Here are five tips to ignore negativity.

  1. Turn off your television and phone.
  2. Identify and cut loose toxic relationships.
  3. De-clutter your life.
  4. Exercise daily.
  5. Focus on you.

Turn Them Off!

For me, the vast majority of negativity in my life came from the television and phone. Media and social media inundated my life with negativity constantly. I stopped watching the news and became selective of what shows I watched. I did the same thing with social media. Becoming selective about which platforms I use helped me tremendously.

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“The best way of removing negativity is to laugh and be joyous.”
~ David Icke

Like many people, you might not want to eliminate watching the news as I did. If it is negatively affecting you, watch it to be informed but ignore the negative opinions/agendas. The same can be done for social media. Ignore the platforms or posts that tend to spread negativity.

Toxicity

Everyone has people in their life that they can do without. If you have someone at home or work you consider to be toxic, cut them loose. If you can’t cut them loose, learn to ignore their toxicity. Understand what they are doing and how it is affecting you. Immediately after interacting with this type of person, do something positive.

“If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.”
~ Michael Jordan

“However vast the darkness, we must supply it with our own light.”
~ Stanley Kubrick

Get Rid Of It

My life can get very cluttered and I spend too much time on negative things. Do you find your life is the same? Periodically I like to take a look at my life and de-clutter it. I throw out whatever isn’t helping me grow as a person. If it isn’t something positive, I don’t need it, and out it goes. You will want to eliminate or ignore these things that are cluttering up your life. Doesn’t it feel great when you’ve gotten rid of clutter?

“You can’t think away your self-defeating thoughts; you have to dissolve them through action.”
 ~ Marty Rubin

“There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict. Walk away; the battle they are fighting isn’t with you, it is with themselves.”
~ Anonymous

Excercise

One of my favorite things to do to reduce negativity is exercise. I exercise daily; while doing so, I think about positive situations. The negative stuff is not allowed in my mind. Set small goals during your workout. Reward yourself as you hit these small goals. While exercising, listen to music that makes you happy. Get back to nature and take a walk/jog outside. Being outdoors, soaking up the sunshine, and breathing fresh air is very positive.

“I’ll always use the negativity as more motivation to work even harder and become even stronger.”
~ Tim Tebow

“Nobody can motivate himself in a positive direction by continually using negative words.”
 ~ John C. Maxwell

Me Time

In addition to daily exercise, another way I ignore negativity is to set aside time for myself every day. I do this early in the morning; it starts my day off right. Take some time for yourself. Go to a quiet room where you are alone in a positive environment. Control your thoughts and only think positive as you meditate. Fill your lungs as you slowly breathe in and out. Get into a relaxed state and speak positive affirmations. The negative will melt away.

“There are so many great things in life; why dwell on negativity?”
~ Zendaya

The Importance Of Finding Your WHY

For this post, I wanted to get you started right on your journey to a new you. If you have decided that you want to be better off this time next year, this post will supply you with the main ingredient. I know that you have set your goals for the next year and written your plans. Now comes the question, “What is your WHY?” The importance of finding your WHY cannot be understated.

My wife and I have been together for 30 years and are happier than ever. Here are some tips on how we keep our relationship fresh and exciting. Get your FREE Relationship Tips Today!

The Importance Of Finding Your WHY

Today is your beginning. It is time to step out on the path, look up at the mountain, and begin your journey. You should be excited and keep that excitement throughout your journey. Enjoy it. It’s not always going to be as easy as the first day. This is why you have to answer that question, “What is your WHY?” Your WHY has to be yours. It has to be big and emotional.

Every January I reread, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. In his book, Hill defines the 13 steps necessary to obtain wealth.  During the early 20th century, Hill spent 20 years interviewing 500 men of wealth. He discovered that each one had the same 13 traits. One of the traits that each man had was a “Definite Purpose.” This is your primary goal; what you want to accomplish in your lifetime. Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Andrew Carnegie Hall had a definite purpose.

The Great Depression

The book was written during the Great Depression. It was one of the hardest times for the country. It was a time where most people struggled financially; many lost everything. What a lot of people don’t know is that few people became millionaires during this time. They didn’t let the circumstances affect them. They had a big WHY and a definite purpose.

Created During The Great Depression

2020

If 2020 taught us anything, it is that life is life and it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Circumstances can change very quickly. Life can either shine you up or grind you up. Don’t let the things you can’t control stop you from controlling the things you can. Two things that you have complete control over are your Attitude and Effort. If you don’t have a big WHY you will crumble at the first sign of adversity. A big WHY will push you and keep you focused on working on your plan.

Desire

Hill begins his book, Think and Grow Rich, with the first step; Desire. He says, “Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a burning desire to win, essential to success.” Here he is talking about your WHY. I ask you again, “What is your WHY in 2021?”

Do you know your definite purpose? If not, find one. If so, find that burning desire to achieve your definite purpose. It is only by knowing what you want to accomplish and desiring immensely to succeed, that you will bring about change. Find your WHY.  You can be a different person this time next year.

How Important Is Breathing

If I held your head underwater, your definite purpose would be to breathe. You would quickly develop a burning desire to fill your lungs with air. A big emotional WHY would develop; you want to live. Develop the same burning desire to achieve your goals as you had for air. Fight for your goals as you would fight for air. If you do this, nothing can stop you.

The question remains, “What do you want to accomplish this year?” Do you want to be living a different lifestyle this time next year? If so, “What is your WHY in 2021?” Do you understand the importance of finding your WHY? Find your definite purpose and develop a burning desire to achieve it. Get started today.

Transitions To A Growth Mindset

Change is inevitable. You go through many transitions as you advance in life. There are some changes that you cannot control, for example, aging. You are all getting older by the minute. Other changes are completely under your control. A good example is your financial situation. By learning to control your thoughts, you can control your bank account. You have to go through different transitions before this is possible. These transitions to a growth mindset take time, but they are worth it.

Let’s Do Something Great Together!

Going Through Transitions

If you are happy with your current situation, whether that be financial, spiritual, or just life in general; great. God bless you and keep doing what you’re doing. If not, then you will have to go through transitions to a growth mindset to change. I have gone through many transitions in my life. They all have one thing in common. See if you can figure out what that is.

Transitioning To A Growth Mindset

I enjoyed my high school years. I was a popular student, part of athletic teams, and even was elected as a class officer. As good as those years were, I had to transition when I became a college student. Mentally, I had to destroy my high school life. I had to hang up my letter jacket and become a college student.

After graduating from college, I became an officer in the U.S. Army. Once again, I had to transition from a college student to an Army officer. I stored away my college life in my mind and immersed myself as a soldier.

DEA

After leaving the Army, I became a Special Agent with DEA. For me to become the best investigator I could be, I mentally left the soldier behind. I grew my hair long and stopped wearing military clothing. DEA was about conducting narcotics investigations and going undercover.

Many agents never accomplished this. They kept the military haircut and clothing. A lot ended up in training because it was a lot like the Army. It was their comfort zone and they didn’t want to leave it. They weren’t willing to destroy their old self in transition to a new one.

The Hardest Transition

After 30 years, I had to make another transition into retirement. It was difficult, as I had to leave my career behind. My career was who I was. The daily social interaction and the excitement were what I missed most. I knew that I would have to put my DEA life in the memory bank and move on.

Opening businesses, I transitioned my mindset to that of a businessman. I destroyed my DEA self and that life became a memory. People ask if I miss it; my reply is always; no. Just like all the other times I transitioned, they were great while they were happening and I’ll always have fond memories. To grow, I had to move forward.

Destroy The Old

If you want to have a better life, you must destroy your old mindset. You will go through transitions to a growth mindset. It will be necessary to immerse yourself in your new life. Your old life might have been okay but you will need to give up your old habits completely.

It Isn’t Easy

Beginning to transition to a growth mindset isn’t easy. Your brain is wired for survival and will do everything to keep you in your comfort zone. It will always resist change. For this reason, the transition takes time. I know no one wants to hear that because we live in a fast-food society. You are used to getting your food right away or ordering from Amazon and getting what you ordered the next day.

These transitions to a growth mindset will require you to do a self-analysis. I wrote a post about negative traits which will stop you from growing. Look at yourself and see if you are holding on to any negative habits. One negative habit that will sabotage your efforts is gossip. Stop talking about other people.

Steps To A New You

To grow, you must transition from a poverty mindset to a mindset of abundance. You know you have a poverty mindset when you’re thinking about the negative things in your life. For example, your primary thoughts are your debt, toxic relationship, or your life situation.

To achieve a mindset of abundance, you will go through the process of change.

You will make a decision and commit to it.

See yourself as who you want to be, not as who you are.

Speak positive affirmations daily.

If you have negative thoughts, immediately began speaking and thinking the opposite thought.

Don’t expect immediate change.

After time you will see the transitions in your daily life.

You will begin believing in your new life.

Your belief will turn into faith.

You will never quit.

I Was Changed For The Better

It’s a new year full of promises. My goals are set, and my plans are in place. Now it is time to put the work in as the journey to success begins. Seeds that I planted last year are beginning to emerge. All the work I put in last year will start to pay off. Everything I did in the past transformed me and I was changed for the better.

My wife and I have been together for 30 years and are happier than ever. Here are some tips on how we keep our relationship fresh and exciting. Get your FREE Relationship Tips Today!

Changed For The Better

I have to constantly remind myself to enjoy every step as the journey to success begins. One way I do this is to look back at my journey so far. I asked myself, “How did I get here?” I have always hated writing. In college and during my career with DEA. Even now as one of my sources of income depends on writing reports, I struggle with writing.

So why did I choose to start a blog in April 2020? Why would I want to put down my thoughts on paper when I never could stand writing. The only answer is divine inspiration. It is something I’m supposed to do. My entire life, I have been lead by divine inspiration. I believe that God has a purpose for me to fulfill, and writing seems to be a big part of that.

The Change Begins

Looking back at my life, I grew up as a shy child who lacked confidence. I never felt like I belonged and always looked at other people as better than me. Even though I had many successes, I would only focus on the failures. I was constantly looking at the negative things that went on in my life.

As I grew, I constantly found myself in situations that were outside of my comfort zone. These were always situations that I volunteered for, such as trying out for sports teams. I volunteered to join the military and parachute training even though I was scared of heights. I didn’t know how I kept finding myself in these situations. Even though I excelled in my training and was winning awards, I still lacked self-confidence. All of my achievements didn’t matter.

Cancer

In 2008, I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and remember asking myself, “What have I done in my life?” Taking a look at my life, I added up all my achievements and my successes. I found peace because I had lived a full life. It is strange to say, but through cancer, I was changed for the better.

I also found my self-confidence, and I stopped caring about other people’s opinions. I focused on myself and began to notice all the “God winks” taking place daily. “God winks” are seemingly coincidental events that happen in our lives. Thinking about someone you haven’t heard from in a long time and they call you. This phone call eventually leads you to someone who becomes a great client.

Inspiration

Fast forward to January 2020, when I became inspired to start an online business to help people. The thought that I needed to pass on lessons that I have learned throughout my life wouldn’t go away. I have learned so much about how the mind works by training and working alongside military special operations operatives. There were people in the world who needed to know what I have learned.

It was then that I started InspireChief.com and began doing the one thing that I hated more than anything, writing. I never learned how to type, so when I do, it’s with two fingers. Luckily, I found dictation software, and I don’t have to type, which saves me a lot of time.

Relationships

Through my journey to success, I began to enjoy blogging. I have built relationships with people throughout the world.  I enjoy cultivating these relationships the most. Relationships are important, and I started using social media to build more relationships. Through these wonderful relationships, I was changed.

Thank You

During my 30 year career with the military and DEA, I was told three times, “thank you,” by strangers. These two little words are powerful and gave me the energy to carry on the fight. In the last nine months, I have been thanked several times and told that my articles have helped people. Whenever I hear I have helped someone, it fills me with energy and keeps me going. Humans are not solitary people, we need interaction and relationships. Relationships need to be tended to so they can flourish. A simple comment like “thank you” goes a long way.

As the journey to success begins, I know I’m here today by divine intervention. I still receive “God winks” frequently. I know there’s more to do. My journey to success has been great, and I have enjoyed it. I was changed for the better. Make sure you enjoy yours and keep your eyes and ears open for your “God winks.”
