“There Is Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself”

I believed she [my blog] needed a touch of luxury to her, and I felt that an Aston Martin DB 9 would suffice.

It’s like an expensive shoe that I wear only in the ‘burds so not to be soiled by the dusty township.

An expensive suede shoe…Italian obviously.

Funny, [Musa chuckles] the conviction behind my desire for this car, not only this car but the lifestyle that comes with it, intimidates most of the people I know.

I find it extremely intriguing how they seem to mirror my limiting beliefs regarding “living out my dreams.”

It’s as if the “true me” remains in bed, trapped by the freedom my dreams while I continue dressing up my fear so to get ready for the day.

It’s no wonder why it’s hard for them to believe me, or is it believing IN me, when my results had shown the contrary.

In the world of results we tend to believe “It” when we see “It” and not believe “It” when we don’t see “It.”

As if our eyes would never lie to us.

“Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…”

So I come back here, to my little corner of insanity, where all things are possible, where I can create what the world sees as miracles, even though I call them simple desires & draft out simple steps on what I believe needs to be done for me to get mine.

Filling my head with as much “crazy stories” that I sometimes let slip & challenge people’s reality as a result, to my fascination, but ease up on my mad scientist, law of attraction BS, so not to be an outcast, I guess.

I mean, talk long enough about how thoughts become things, and how dominate thoughts manifest themselves in the real world and, well, the world tend to become less populated if you know what I mean.

[And yes even best friends can be the things that limit your success in life.]

And then I make up one day in the top 1% of the successful people in the world.

A quote I wrote on my @musa23 account comes to mind:

Dear Musa,

Welcome to the first email you’ll receive as part of the 21-day Success Principles FREE Mentorship Course – filled with success strategies that can help you get from where you are now to where you want to be.

Each day you’ll receive an email just like this one. Some, like today’s, will include links to a downloadable form or other activity to complete.

As you read each day’s message, be sure to have your copy of The Success Principles book nearby. We’ll be referring to various chapters and exercises in the book that will enhance your Mentorship Program.

To give you a running start with the concepts found in the book, we recommend that you listen to a special teleclass with Jack Canfield as he discusses ‘The Success Principles’ and answers many of the questions readers have for him as they
journey down the path to success:

http://www.thebigwhitebook.com/replay.php? <—— do this first!There's even a tell-a-friend feature so you can share this valuable teleclass with family, friends and loved ones you know deserve more success in their life:www.TheBigWhiteBook.com/replay


And now – with a heartfelt welcome from Jack Canfield and Janet Switzer – let’s get started with today’s Mentorship Message…


As human beings, we often believe we don’t have enough money,romance, success or joy in our lives. But what we need to understand is that greatness exists in all of us. It’s simply a matter of pulling that greatness out of ourselves and using it to get us from where we are now…to where we want to be.

While many people believe they are entitled to live a great life, top achievers we’ve met over the years know they must take 100% responsibility for achieving the lifestyle, relationships, financial freedom and opportunities they experience in their lives.

This isn’t always easy. But one way to start taking more responsibility is to begin responding differently to the events that occur in your life. Remember the formula from Principle #1 of The Success Principles book?

—->>> E + R = O

Event + Response = Outcome. That’s right…you can actually change the outcomes in your life – and get better ones – simply by responding differently to challenges and opportunities that occur.

Listen now as Jack walks you through how to respond differently using the E+R=O formula. Click on this audio link now and wait a few moments for today’s audio lesson to start playing:

(Update: Subscribe to Jack Canfield’s Newsletter to receive these audios via www.thesuccessprinciples.com)

Taking 100% responsibility is what successful people do. And it’s the first step YOU must take on your new Success Principles journey.

We’ll see you tomorrow with another mentorship message.

In friendship,

I Want It, Therefore I Can Never Have It

Life is such a beautiful thing, especially when you expect it to be.

I wanted my next update to allow me to stand naked before you.

Relax I didn’t post a nude picture of myself within this update, but what I meant is that I choose to stand naked before you today so that you can feel my trust in myself and the universe.

Actually I am doing this hoping that you will do the same with yourself also, do this so to allow yourself the chance to see yourself for What and Who you truly are…beautiful.

This journey of self consciousness and awareness through the continual study of the mind and the laws that govern all that is energy has brought me into a space where I am equipped with the necessary tools to become a success – my definition of success is having the bank balance to live life on my own terms – yet my current experience is a complete contrast to what I envision in my mind.

But you know what, honestly, I keep changing my mind so much that it is no surprise that I have not manifested the thing that I wanted because I have so many counter/ like images, wants, goals and desires that I allow to harbour in my mind, that way the “order” never reaches me.

Or if it is, the waiter has to keep on going back to the kitchen to change it.

I hear people, myself included, saying, “I want to be rich, I want to be rich, I want to be rich, I want to be rich,” “I want to have an internet business,” or “I want to get a better paying job,” my favourite “Recession (this), recession (that),” or “The debts that I have are killing me!” this one is common amongst the site I scan “How can I use the law of attraction that they talked about in The Secret to make money,” these ones are from my spam emails “Riches,” “Unemployment,” “Lack of money,” “Business is bad,” here’s one by and from myself and family “I am sick, I am sick, I’m so sick,” “I’m tired, so weak,” aka lack and limitation which is a vibration of fear that is being emitted with every word my thinking has cooked which will normally be followed by its respective deed or act.

The law of attraction is a sub-law to the law of vibration which states that one thing will attract to it anything and everything that is in harmonious vibration to it.

And since E = mc2, that is everything is energy so that includes you, and what we know about energy is that it vibrates – it is by law that you attract to you everything, anything that is in harmonious vibration with you.

So right now you and I are vibrating at rate emitted by every cell in our body, causing us to attract to us things that vibrate in the same way – the thing is it’s our mind that determines how we vibrate, particularly the subconscious mind, at the powerful level this is due to the images that keep popping in our minds.

It what we think about that controls the outcome of our lives because the emotions that sometimes originate from or about what we are thinking that combine into a powerful frequency that execute a command to the Universe, moulding it into providing the feedback – or the thing – that, by law, returns to the source.

In short, we receive and become what we think about.

Keeping in mind, excuse the pun, that the mind thinks in picture – it doesn’t “hear” whether you like it or not or whether you hate it or not – it gives back to you the respective feeling and emotion that you associate with the picture you “see” in your mind.

The greater or the more intense the feeling is, the faster the feedback, or the manifestation, from the Universe.

Hence the line they kept saying to that quarterback in Any Given Sunday: “You have to see it, before you do it.”

What I am saying here is that you have to “see” it and FEEL it for quicker results, that is why this statement of fact holds true, “You Receive What You Fear” by author Neale D. Walsch.

So here I am, the good, decent, hard working guy that I am “wanting.”

I am in want.

I am in a vibration of wanting to get rich.

Wanting to get rich on the internet.

Wanting to get rich in business.

Wanting to get rich in all aspect of my life, because riches can also mean excellent health, good social group, loving family and confidence in self.

But what vibration am I in?


And since the Universe or Life or God or Allah or Buddha or You – same thing – gives you back what you manifest from your thoughts and feelings, what do you get?

The experience of “want.”

Cause and effect.

There is a seminar that came to me in parts which was conducted by a mentor and facebook, friend that in David Schirmer, and in one of them he said, “…picture yourself on a golf course about to tee off, and over in the far distance you see a sand bunker, and you immediately say to yourself, “I don’t want the ball to go in the sand.” What picture goes in the mind when you say that? THE BALL GOING IN THE SAND.

Then there is no wonder why life is as it is, because we as SPIRITUAL BEINGS LIVING IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, let me say that again for emphasis: WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS LIVING IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD, create our lives through the thoughts we have and choose to fill our minds.

And just because you decide at a conscious level that you want to change the results and experience something else, doesn’t mean you have changed it at a subconscious level – the level that makes you think, say and do the things you do automatically, which by the way is the part that governs the things you have and experience in your life.

So “breaking” the protective layer upon layer that has been developing and thickening with every passing moment from the day you were born till now, replacing the images – since the mind “thinks” in pictures and not words, and it is these images that keep on manifesting as your life experience – with the images you would like to have, do or become is the key to success.

The key to your success.

The key to my success.

And this might take a day to do, a week, a month, a year, a decade, half a century, a century or millennia.

It all depends on how much time do you want to spend a day, maybe even starting today, filling your mind with the images, thoughts, feelings and emotions that are in a harmony with the good that you deserve and, not want but rather, choose to experience.

Keeping in mind that one hour is just one twenty fourth of a day.

How Bad Do You Want It?

It’s been two years since I began my journey to self awareness and I still haven’t gotten all the parts right – see this as motivation, do that and you’re already have way in.

To your success and prosperity,

– Musawenkosi Tshoaele

Letter To A Friend – III Edition

Dearest Friend,
{I trust and pray you have received my first letter in which I prayed for change in your life.
Followed by another which was a remembrance of my love for you.
Just to continue to display God’s persistent love for you through me, I write to you yet again.}
The world you are experiencing is but a world of your own design. 

A design that can be easily redesigned through being grateful of what you have and of what you are going to have. 

And it is due to this ability of choosing and changing what you what life to mean, making highly impossible to find yourself “stuck” in any one environment. 

Mind you, an environment of your own creation, just like the feeling of incarceration associated with it.

I believe freedom should begin first in the mind, and for it to spread through your entire body you have to show appreciation for having thought that thought of freedom until that thought becomes a dominant thought. 

It is from this very act that your sense of freedom will overflow within, and expand and multiply without. 

You have to feel free in order to experience freedom, and for you to feel it, you must first own it. 

It is the images in your head you hold longer than others that create your world as you see and experience. 

The thinking process that you hold dear to you, with no sign of letting go, is the thinking process that your life will be defined by.

Therefore with this said the only person that holds the keys to the cage you find yourself in, the cage that limits your growth; the cage that limits your expression; the only person that truly holds the key to your freedom is yourself.

And a way to free yourself is through appreciation and joyful anticipation.

Expansion through the power of gratitude.

An idea I will continue to feed you with persistently, until it breaks through the walls of your subconscious with you accepting this idea as Truth.

You are rich beyond your wildest dreams, you just can’t see it. 

What is worse is that you don’t believe it. 

You have to believe because that would lead to you reaching a state of knowing, and if you are grateful for what you know no one outside of you would tell you otherwise. 

Because then you would not only have faith in yourself, but you would be having faith in God. 

And having faith in God is having have in a world of wealth & abundance. 

It is this world that I implore you to be grateful for. 

Which in turn is being grateful for who you are, and what you are [this definition can only be done after plucking out what does not represent or define you first] is Magnificent.

A ball of Creative Energy that has the power to mould something, everything, anything, out of thin air.

You apply this power to create by holding clear images of the person you want be, with all the possessions this person has and being grateful for finally becoming this true image of yourself. 

This is you having so much faith that you honestly believe that you are that which you are becoming, and being in a state of appreciation of this faith, makes it possible for you to be anything you want to be.

And that, my friend, is true freedom.

Your world, your government, your society, your family can give you so much and go so far.

But it is when you thank God as opposed to asking God for your freedom, that you will feel as if you are given these blessings in the form of white robe to wear around your heart.

With that said life can therefore never be seen as four walls that surround and restrict you but an open field of opportunity. 

I say a field of opportunity because it can be compared to a blank canvas waiting on you to paint whatever it is you want out of life.

Now do you see who is truly calling the shots?

Gratefully yours,

M. Tshoaele

How To Enhance The Power Of Association

Fill your life with more of the things you want to see more in your life.

Things you want to become.

Fill your mind with pictures, images, words, grammar, vocabulary that you want to associate yourself with.

Talk about it; imagine – continuously – how life would be like living life as the person you want to become.

The persistence in this exercise generates faith in your ability to recreate the image of yourself into that you are becoming.

And faith is where the money is.

Faith draws you closer to your desired goal, faster.

So your mission is to closely align yourself with things you want to see in yourself.

Be it books, seminars, people, movies, audio, visuals, words, experiences, thinking patterns.

And weed out all that which does not define Who You Are…be it books, seminars, people, movies, audio, visuals, words, experiences, thinking patterns.

I don’t care how much you hold in me as a friend or a loved one but if your thinking contradicts my pursuit of wealth (financially and/or physically and/or spiritually and/or mentally) I will simply cut you out of my life.

I don’t ride with losers, especially those addicted to illusions of a lack-filled mentally that causes so much hurt and pain to herself and those around her.

And I refuse to be within your line of fire.

It would then be harder for my environment to influence me, but easier for me to influence my environment.

I cannot enrich the “poor” through regressive hand outs, the same hand outs that would be expected from me tomorrow and the day after that.

I would rather teach the poor to fish through creative means that way nabo bazo bona kuthi life is not a world of lack.

And all that I might want, I must just create…

…through gratitude…

…and gratitude produces faith…

And this I repeatedly tell her in vain.

Only if she would just listen.

And you can’t hear whatever Truth I tell, if you don’t stop tell yourself the lies you have exclusively programmed yourself to hear.

It’s like allowing yourself to tune in to a different frequency especially since the one you are currently in is so painful, so depressing, so frustrating, and so sad.

Emotions that contradict your being – who You Really Are – and thus you fight against it, only to observe these emotions fight back as is if asking you “why shouldn’t you feel this way? Can’t you see the world around you??”

“World around you” being the frequency you are in.

An error hence the static.


“How can I tell myself a lie?”

To which I reply “See, that’s where the error is.”

What you have grown to believe to be the truth are the very foundations that have led to such storms of fear that cause blizzards of so much negativity, it feeds off itself and builds up to a lifestyle you have come to believe as your “reality”.

“As if saying this is how life is, and there is nothing you can do about.”

And that’s false.

Which brings us back to the reason for this post.

Associating yourself with things that would reflect the person You Are, will greatly remedy this temporary illusion of scarcity.

I say this because you have to BE the person that can DO the things you long for in order to HAVE that which you desire.

So I repeat Becoming should be the first step to all success.

And this is done through association.
