“All That Glitters…”

“​Twenty years ago we began studying how people become wealthy.

Initially, we did it just as you might imagine, by surveying people in so-called upscale neighborhoods across the country.

In time, we discovered something odd. 

Many people who live in expensive homes and drive luxury cars do not actually have much wealth. 

Then, we discovered something even odder: Many people who have a great deal of wealth do not even live in upscale neighborhoods.”

It’s reading stuff like that that makes me update my life’s goal because they remind me to have the right thinking and the right associations.

I get my thinking right then I will take the right actions that attract the things I want for my life.

Thank you.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

How Was Your Average, Perfect Day?

I read a beautiful blog post, shared by my team leader in the work group Whatsapp (how I despise these groups) titled The Perfect Average Day.

Like the English saying, I walked a mile in her shoes.

Or was it her high heels.

It was relatable.

Well written.

I loved it.

But some of my work colleagues didn’t.

Commenting about how she should use the opportunities within her company to better her living conditions.

To better HER perfect, average day.

Another commented about how there’s nothing special about her day since there are others who go through worse.

Another commented on what kind of response did the writer want? Compassion?

In the back of mind I thought, guys…it’s not a competition.

It’s not about compassion.

Why the hostility?

Is it shame, or embarrassment?

Having some parts of your life displayed like that for all to see, maybe making you feel intimidated?

Or was it because it was a woman who wrote that story?

Did she struck a cord maybe?

This was because I believed she wrote that just to share a part of her life with a receptive audience.

Just because she writes and that’s what writers do.

No hidden agendas.

Maybe that’s the writer in me talking.

Maybe they are acting this way because it’s one of those photos that don’t make it to their Instagrams.

Because it has no filter.

Too real.

In the world of the Internet, there is no such thing as over sharing.

So instead of pointing out their insecurities, I decided to blog about it here.

I do my best to avoid an argument.

It’s like what this book I’m re-reading says,

“A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”
How To Make Friends and Influence People. 

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

You Ever Saw A Scary Movie?

Making a habit of sidelining your life goals because of how hard achieving them will be is a bad habit.

Rather find yourself within the field that runs hand in hand with what you ultimately want in life, even if at the time the pay isn’t good.

Your initial sacrifices coupled with your desire to achieve and succeed in your life’s passion will eventually pay off.

Living life short selling yourself will only lead to regret in your late years.

Rather live a challenging life fighting for your dreams.

Than a quiet one with no stories to tell your grand kids.

I don’t want to be a boring, poor granddad living with my daughter.

Talk about a scary movie.

I love you.
I’m sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.

How I Amplify Getting Everything That I Want, And Now Own

I am beginning to respect my wall.

I am attempting to use the one I have on my facebook account to write up my affirmations but the wall I’m referring to in this blog is the one I have in my room.

After the cousin I mentioned here introduced me to the law of attraction – which I am, of late, calling the law of love – I cut out a picture of a car I wanted and stuck it on my wall.

So I kept on seeing this car in my room (lol! that didn’t sound right, but anyway) and for that moment I imaged how independent and good it would fell to have one.

While dressing up, before I go to bed, waking up or being in, a room I am mostly in, I would glance at it, consciously or subconsciously.

Even seeing it in my peripheral view made it possible for me to believe, at that very moment & time, Musa had a car.

I was motivated and inspired to get one, so I put to action ways of making what I believed in my heart and mind (what I refer to as the Truth) into the physical world (what is see around me which I termed as Appearance, thanks to the writings in The Science of Getting Rich).

Every step I took seemed to be “pulling” me closer to my Palio.

Every time I saw my Palio in my room it reminded me of what my main desire, of what my main goal at the time was.

Which led to calls being made.

Even after my application was declined by Absa Bank I kept on pushing on.

I remembered Wallace Wattles – or was it Napoleon Hill? – mentioning that I shouldn’t allow myself to be disappointed.

Especially after encountering the illusion of failure.

Failure is a way of God or the Universe telling you that a different path filled with fruitful results has been laid out for, and the one you were on wasn’t the one prepared for you.

So in retrospect it was my persistence and vision AND informing those close to me about what I wanted to attract into my life.

Which made it possible for the Truth to mould into the Appearance in the form of me getting my Palio.

I say this ‘cause it – call it inspiration, God, the Universe, intuition – led me to a lady I work with having to bring a newspaper from home, which had an ad’ of the car I wanted.

Calls led to faxes which led to the pick which led to:


I thank God for the goodness, the love, the wealth and abundance He surrounds me with.

As I write this I recall a time I also cut up a picture of a personal computer with its own personalized specifications.

A couple of weeks went by only to receive an email from a friend selling a pc.

I negotiated with him into selling me one with my desired specs and at a cheaper price and here I am typing out my next blog post on it.

The more I write about how grateful am for “my wall” and how it just keeps on GIVING me all and then some, the more I am humbled but it.

Not so long ago I put up a picture of a modem, for both my pc & my laptop (it’s in italic because I am yet to mold it into the physical).

Having the patience and meditating over it’s acquisition through prayer; I eventually walked up into one of their outlets and inquired buying it.

After I was informed about my bad network coverage at the area I live in and recommended to opt for a desktop only version, I suggested I would need time to consider the offer and left to ask around for a possible counter offers.

I got my counter offer.

Hence the wireless pc/laptop modem I am now using.

A modem which I am grateful for alongside all my worldly possessions.

I currently have principles covered in two pages up on my all (that reminds I must look out for a picture of my laptop, thanks for the reminder) that I would like to put up for you also in my next post.

They are from Wallace Wattles who I touched on in an earlier post, so if you are a fan, just like me, I know you will join me in my daily affirmations.

You know, I’m getting used to associating myself with Success.

A habit I will get used to regardless of it taking me out of my comfort zone.

Thank you for reading, and I would appreciate it if you were to leave a comment of a possible link that is relative to this post.

Do you have or read about sites/blogs which talk about almost the same topic?

Can you leave a link in the comments below for me & all my readers?

Thanks in advance.

Update: What I want to add as a disclaimer to the post above is that you can use whatever technique or affirmation, but if you do not have the “death wish” like Purpose behind it, nothing will come from your attempts.

I repeat, it all depends on How Bad Do You Want It.
