Intentional Accidents

Nothing happens by accident.

If you don’t have a goal in mind then your goal won’t mind…not pulling through for you.

Hell, even if you do have a goal you need to believe in it in order for you to attract it.

You attract who you are, not what you want.

You do this by acting as if you already have what you want to achieve.

Be intentional about what you want and act towards achieving it.

Become success-conscious in order for you to attract success.

Thank you.

I love you.

The Voodoo You Do…

We used to call it witchcraft my girlfriend and I.

Even had a stab at it with my sister.

She used to study over an hour’s drive from home.

So we used declare to…

God?

The Universe?

The road maybe…

Or are they all part of the same thing?

On the kind of cars we wanted to see on the way highway.

One time we made our intention to see a monster truck.

Not a very common sight to put modestly.

Put on our way home we took a detour to some upmarket mall to do some window shopping.

Next thing I know we are in a music store trying out some video game they were promoting.

It was a car game.

A monster truck car game.

I stopped halfway through and laughed at how bizarre this works.

How some way some how we managed to attract this desire offhandly and it found a way to come into our life experience.

We do this all the time.

To a point where my girl and I started writing down the things we wanted in our lives.

We don’t do it as much now…maybe it has to do with our fear of success?

But we used to, and man did the most delightful of things come our way…

In the weirdest of ways did they come.

In a sly kind of way, that we were thrilled about them.

Then it became kind of taboo.

Asking ourselves whether we deserved such goodness.

To a point, unconsciously of course, where we attracted jobs that took so much of our time that we couldn’t make the time, choose not to would be more correct, to intentionally create our lives by scripting it into life.

The hard way has become so familiar that, funny enough, it has become our comfort zone.

But now that she’s working her way out of these self defeating habits I guess I should speak for myself.

….let’s get to work then.

This is me going back to my “witchcrafting” ways.

Would You Like Me To Give You A Formula For Success?

Would you like me to give you a formula for success?

It’s quite simple, really.

Double your rate of failure.

You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success.

But it isn’t at all.

You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it.

So go ahead and make mistakes.

Make all you can.

Because remember that’s where you will find success.

What You Link to Pleasure or Pain Determines Your Results

A lesson that I’ve been learning for the past couple of weeks at my sales job is that your behavior has a direct link to the results you get.

The way you behave influences the way you act.

And it’s your actions that produce the results you get.

And lately for me it hasn’t been fruitful for me to allow my emotions to rule how I act.

Since it’s because of that, that my results have not been so awesome.

And the funny thing with life’s lessons, as painful as they are, they will keep on repeating until you get the lesson.

A famous personal development coach by the name of @Tony Robbins once said we are motivated by pain and pleasure.

The more pleasure you link into doing something, the more you will keep doing it.

The more pain you will link into not doing something, the more you will continue not doing it.

So in other words the more I link pleasure or comfort in doing what am I currently doing, I will forever produce the results I am getting.

Same goes for how if I continue to link pain or discomfort to doing something different, which is outside of my comfort zone, the higher the chances of me continuing getting the results I am currently getting.

Solution:

So it is a matter of changing what I link to pleasure and what I link to pain so to get things going.

For example

With regards to pain…

- how painful is it for me now not getting the results I want?

- what am I losing out on because of my current behavior?

- who that I love is suffering because of my results?

- how is it affecting me now financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually?

- how worse will it be for me 5 years from now, 10 years from now, or 20?

With regards to pleasure…

- how pleasurable and awesome would it be for me if I DID get the results I wanted?

- what would I gain from the new and exciting rewards from my joyful results?

- who that I love will be benefiting from my new and improving results?

- how will I gain financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually?

- how much more better will it be for me 5 years from now? 10 years from today? Or in 20 years time?

I love you.

Thank you.

Making the Burnout Worth Your While

So I don’t meditate as much.

So I don’t hear that inner voice as clearly as I used to.

Funny how I was closer to my core when I didn’t have to rush to work in the morning.

Sometimes this feeling of “forced” disconnection with my inner self leaves me feeling lost.

Because if I’m not feeling high on love, joy, happiness then there’s something that I’m doing that blocking the natural high I was born with.

Forced disconnection.

Should consider applying for a beach bum position.

It’s either that or I find myself an occupation I love doing.

All work will then be all play.

Making the burnout worth while.

I love you.

Thank you.

What Are the Lyrics to Your Song?

It’s 7:39pm on my way back from work.

I’m in a taxi, with the passenger next to me probably reading what I’m typing here on my cell.

Just realized I need to post something for my WordPress blog.

Not sure what exactly.

But I’m figuring I should update on what’s been on my mind lately.

And that’s been bliss.

In the sense of overcoming the fear of doing what I love.

Instead of being caught up with what the system asks of me to “survive” within the monetary system.

I’ve been reading a lot of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s updates on Facebook.

And he’s all about purpose.

My favorite quote from him is:

“Never die with your music still in you.”

About how the wealthiest piece of land in the planet is the graveyard, with a lot of people dying with their dreams…desires…what they were REALLY good at not having been fulfilled.

So what will happen, if you did?

If you took the steps, step by step, that led you to producing or creating or designing your inner “song?”

Until one day, the world hears your “song,”

What you are really about,

Who you really are?

…Bliss.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

What’s In It For You?

I’ve been telemarketing for the past 9 months.

Wow.

Was shocked to even realized how long I’ve been here.

Guess time passes you by when you get “caught up” in waking up at 4:30am only to get home at around 8:30pm.

Sales driven environment, I’ve seemed to have lost the plot.

Especially when it comes to my self development education.

Applied knowledge is power.

And I’ve just been going through the emotion of late.

Just grateful to have this blog.

Writing centers me.

My true passion…

But why sales then?

Because it’s outside my comfort zone.

Or at least it was.

For an emotional guy like myself, I feel there’s no better way to manage my emotions than doing sales.

People don’t like to be sold to really.

But if you get the hang of the WIIFM paradigm then you should be good.

W – what’s

I – in

I – it

F – for

M – me

Come I get back to it then.

Lunch break almost over.

I love you.

Thank you.

Sometimes the Hardest Things in Life are the Most Simple to Change

@TheUltimateMuse: I didn’t fail the test. I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.
– Benjamin Franklin

So I guess I’m finding ways that don’t work for me with the crappy sales week I had.

Maybe that’s a good thing.

That I suck in sales?

…Nah man I guess you can’t be doing the same things and expecting different results.

And boy have I NOT been getting the results I’ve been wanting lately hey.

Aint that some shit.

…I guess it’s not rocket since after all.

If you want different results, take different actions.

Until you get the right results from these different actions…
