The Fixer

B33rFzqCYAIREuFSometimes when the road ahead looks very dark, anxiety levels go up.

That’s when I come to you God to help shed some light.

But if the road I’m taking vele has no street lights then I’m relieved knowing that you are by my side.

I’m taking this knee with this post because I’m also in dire need so my ancestors need to be also involved in this prayer.

Because without them I would be here, and without You they wouldn’t have been.

I light my candles and incense with this update in gratitude of what I already have.

Thank you for our business.

Thank you for our jobs.

Thank you for the shelter you are providing us.

Thank you for the water and lights that we sometimes take for granted.

Thank you for the food we eat.

Our perfect health and the rich relationships we have.

Thank you for the clothes on our backs.

And the large amounts of income that come to us through various sources, with increasing frequency.

All praise goes to you God.

I am bound to make flops along the way.

I just want to thank you for softening the falls.

Thank you for giving me the courage to fail forward.

Because there is no learning without falling. And I need to learn so I can grow to be my better self.

Continue guiding us through to our better self.

Yours in gratitude,

Amen

Who You With?

I didn’t really get the concept of fighting for what you want.

Not consciously.

I’m a lover so this fighting thing is foreign to me.

But when I took a step back to see how things are currently for me.

I see myself wondering further away from, what I thought, was my path to freedom.

A path worth fighting for.

Reminds me of a CD I listened to about by farmer turned multimillionaire business owner about feeding the dream.

Protecting the dream.

There are lots of dream stealers out there.

Yourself included.

So dunking you mind in an environment of people that keep your dream alive, is vital.

Not only for your ultimate goal in life but for your everyday success as well.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

Do You Know What Cures Fear? 

There was this obstacle course that my team and I undertook which also included a tightrope.

It’s based in Bryanston, I don’t know if you’ve heard of it.

But I won’t mention it by name because my colleague broke her foot during one of the jumps there. And that wasn’t cool.

Sure granted the jump was not exactly according to the facilitor’s guidelines but family first, you know?

Anyways, you climbed up these steps to reach the beginning of the tightrope and below was the safety net, and on the other end are steps you can use to climb down once you have made it to the other side.

It’s shit scary being up there.

The heart starts beating faster once you let go of the balcony located at the beginning of the obstacle to walk the rope.

It was me, the rope and the safety net below.

The unknown is scary at the beginning.

Letting go of what you know is even scarier.

I think that is why your why is important.

The reason why you are doing it.

Whether it’s worth risking it all.

If you don’t have that then you won’t let go of the old in the pursuit of the new.

It’s like what Doug Wead Skip Ross said: action cures fear.

If the why is clear, the how is easy.Keith Abraham

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

A Post About Living On Purpose

There have been a lot of events happening to me lately.

Life has been going at such a fast pace the conversation that I had two weeks feels it took place yesterday.

Ending up zoning out and going through the emotions not making any meaningful contributions.

I think the purpose of life is to serve others doing what you love.

So wasting your life being a repetitive zombie, doing the same dead end deal you did the day before, that isn’t taking you closer to what makes you happy… Is simply not living.

But I hear most people don’t know what they want or haven’t had the time to write them down.

If you don’t know what where you are going, you will stay where you are.

I love you.

Thank you.

“Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You” ~ @DrWayneWDyer

Just a bit bummed about the passing of the good Dr Wanye Dyer.

But after counseling with my #joy @Phetheni we came to the understanding that he played his part in this world.

And it’s up to us to pay forward his teachings to leave where ever we are better than how we found it.

I love you.

Thank you.

I Must Have The Ability To Be "Money Conscious"

You know I realized after having posted Think And Grow Rich: Desire that I tend to, after I have finished reading a self development book, not use the practical steps detailed within the book, in this case Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, to better my life.

It completely defeats the purpose behind the purchase of the book, I might as well have taken the money and invested the money instead or something.

I was a bit angry at myself for being a walking contradiction.

Then after pulling myself together, realizing that progress is not being made by me beating myself up, I began looking out as to why was I being so “counter production.”

‘Why do I do that?’

‘How can I change this?’

That’s when I heard this guy on TV tell some teenager, who was doubting himself, that he mustn’t fuss over the enormity of the task.

What he must look at is: What is the first thing that he must do?

After that is complete, he must look at the next step, and the next step after that. Up until the task/project is complete.

It’s the first step, then I take another one, then another…one step at a time, one day at a time.

I mean by starting with the goal in mind and taking life as it comes one step at a time, surely I will overcome the chains of procrastination and achieve whatever desire I lay in front of me?

That’s when I heard myself say: Any body can be giving directions to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but most never reach it because they either don’t believe such a pot exists or the don’t believe they are worthy of such wealth.

I don’t (didn’t) believe in myself.

There is a psychology, I believe, when it comes to acquiring wealth.

A psychology, if cut up and analyzes vigorously, could open up the floodgates of wealth; allowing me to live the lifestyle I wish to live or, through not applying the inspired principles, keep me (mentally) poor.

I can go back and blame friends, church, family, colleagues or even people who I look up to for guidance and advice for telling me stuff life:

1. “Wanting is sinful, and that I should just be grateful for what I have,”
2. or “Money/the love of money is the root of all evil,”
3. or my all time favourite “…we can only dream neh?”

You know when you grew up, unconsciously, surrounding yourself with “limited thinkers,” and then being introduced to a world where unlimited abundance can be a way of life…well the thought is scary at first and I used to reject it as being too good to be true.

I (used to) fear the next level, it (used to) will therefore elude me.

Instead of looking at my past success I under rate myself making it almost impossible for me to succeed.

I guess that’s where faith steps in the picture…
