Money can’t fill an empty heart

cc fb template Mony cant fill empty heartl

Money can’t fix a broken heart. It seem like most people in America believe the money, above all other things, will make the biggest difference in their lives.The “American Dream” is based upon having more money than one needs.

Yes, Money can patch up holes in your house. Money can also easily fix a hole in your car, but no amount of money can fix a hole in your heart.

Yes, Money does bring comfort and a false sense of security, but money doesn’t create happiness and peace.

Money isn’t real.

If all money in the world disappeared today, only humans would be impacted. The rest of the living creatures of the world would be just fine.This is because humans have been conditioned to believe that money is needed to survive.

When you’re laid up in the hospital, your bank account won’t come visit you.Nurture your relationship, love people, not money.

You can’t turn a moth into a butterfly

We all make bad choices; some of us make more than others.
Bad choices make great stories and yield life lessons.
 
What’s worst than making a lousy choice? Staying in it longer than necessary.
 
If you get into a dissatisfactory relationship, how long you stay in it is more impactful to your life than the fact that you got in it in the first place.
 
The next time you make a poor choice, learn your lesson and move on.
 
Don’t waste time trying to turn a moth into a butterfly.

Swim to shore, live to love another day

titanic

At what point do you jump off of a sinking ship? There is an old custom of the captain going down with the ship. I actually get it. It speaks to the captains commitment to his crew and the ship.

As a leader I believe I should “Take one for the team”. There is also a line where my self preservation genes kick in and I start swimming for the shore.

I have noticed that many people stay on sinking ships until the water is up to their nose. Most of the time these people aren’t the captain of these ships, yet they remain until their demise.

What’s more alarming is that these individuals are extremely apathetic towards their situation. Not only are they choosing to stay on the sinking ship, they most often deny that the ship is sinking, or even worse, just don’t give a damn.

I see this phenomena in romantic relationships all the time. Some people will stay in abusive, unhealthy, dysfunctional, or unhappy relationships and do little to nothing to make them better.

The just sit there like Leonardo Dicaprio in the final scene of the Titanic, accepting there downfall as if they have no option.

As long as one can breath and think, there are options. I’m here to tell you that the pain and fear of jumping ship from an atrocious relationship, is always less than the pain and suffering of staying and drowning to death.

If your relationship is sinking, do all that you can to repair it before you jump ship.

Swim to shore, live to love another day.

 

 

Start Your Someday Life Today

Life Changer Banner fb push the button

What does your someday life look like? I imagine it looks amazing, at worst it looks better than your current life. Your someday life is the one you will get to someday, when conditions are better or different. Your someday life is the one you want, but don’t have the time and money for. Your someday life may seem like it only exist in some distant future, and that may be true. You can start working on it now.

Start working on it now and work on it everyday. Then before you know it, your someday life will be your everyday life.

Let me know what your someday life looks like, leave a comment starting with “Someday I want to….”. Then start working on that someday, today.

Here are a few of mine:
Someday I will be in excellent shape.
Someday I will have a successful business.
Someday I will write a book.

I’m working on all of these things now. My someday life is creeping up on me.

My Body is calling.

1437321373919

This Is A Call To Action. Join the Nation, Change Your Life and Change Your Nation. I can no longer resist the call of my higher self, requesting that I relate my body and soul as the source of my power and communication to the universe.

In order for me to experience the highest levels of communication and connection, I must be clean & clear of all fear. I must be a constant source of love and forgiveness, starting with myself.

Feeding my body poison everyday isn’t very loving to myself. Denying my body the opportunity to participate in physical activities that promote health and well being, isn’t loving myself. Standing on the sidelines of life watching others move and shake the world, that’s not loving the world.

It all sounds like some fear to me. Fear of responsibility, fear of being vulnerable and fear of change. These fears are keeping me trapped in my small life, which is aligned with my lower self. My fears are keeping me form having my someday life. I’m done with that.

I’m ready to divorce my lower self, our relationship hasn’t been working for me. I’m ready to be all that God intended me to be. I’m ready let my light shine.

I’m letting go. I surrender to the call.
See you on the other side.

I watched the PlantPure Nation documentary last night and I was touched, moved and inspired. So I am challenging myself to attempt to start a plant based diet today. The first phase is for me to eliminate red meat. Then I will remove the chicken and fish. The next thing to go will be the three “White Poisons” Flour, Sugar and Salt.

I also intend to do some blood work before and again in 6 months to see the measurable difference. I will accomplish my health transition gradually and I will achieve my goal.

Now who’s coming with me?

Watch this video and join there group and join one of the health groups that I’m a member. I recommend that you don’t think about it and just act.

Why I walk 5 miles a day.

Walking man 21 days

My first 21 Day New Habit Challenge

 

Today marks the 22nd day in a row that I have walked 5 miles a day. This was my first new habit challenge. I am proud of my self for sticking to my commitment, no matter what. I walked in the rain. I walked in the cold. I walked at night. I walked when I was tired. I even walked when I was sick.

No matter how I felt before my walk, I felt better afterwards, every time. This is part of how it becomes a new habit. Not only by doing it everyday, but also from the enjoyment and benefits I get from walking.

I now know my neighborhood pretty well. I have been in most of the coffee shops around here and met new friends. I used my walking time as a meditative period. I listened to hours and hours of personal development material.

When I first started the walking it was a challenge, 21 days later, I look forward to doing it. I enjoy it, I actually want to do it. I’m truly excited about walking 5 miles. This has inspired me to create more new habits.

Good habits are easy to develop if you have will and desire and little help from some friends. Once you get started, your attitude will shift and you will find the difficult to be easy.

You Don’t Understand Me.

1c6ba191809a64bc5c1752530c6526cd54

How has your life been impacted by you not feeling understood? How many times have you gotten upset because you thought you weren’t understood? How many times have you had to explain yourself over and over again to someone because they didn’t seem to get your point of view? How many times have you gotten into arguments with someone simply because they didn’t understand your view?

This is my story, this is my song, and I know that I’m not alone. I can’t tell you how often I feel misunderstood. Feeling misunderstood has had a major impact on my life.

I enjoy the company of those who get me I don’t want to spend much time with those who make wrong all the time because they disagree. People who agree with me are way more fun to be with.

This was how it was for me for so long. Then one day I realized two things that changed my feeling of being understood.

First I realized that I was letting what others thought about me determine my reaction. When what I should be doing is responding to them based upon who I say I am.

When I’m responding to others based upon my commitment to life vs. reacting to what they think, I always come out better.

Secondly I realized that it’s better to first understand others, than it is to try and have them get you. There is a quote that goes “Seek to understand, before being understood”.

When I make a gracious effort to understand the wants and needs of others before mine, things tend to work out better. I experience a lot more friction when I’m trying to get my point across than when I’m trying to get their point.Now I seldom feel misunderstood and on the few occasions where I do, it really isn’t a big deal.

Be the change you want to see in the world.If you want others to understand you, you must first understand them.

 

Happiness is an Inside Job

happiness-is-an-inside-job-6

Happiness is an Inside Job.

I just got off the phone with a friend named April, she has ben going through a tough time with her fiancé. For the past six month April has had to share her man with another woman. The side chic is taking over and it is driving her bat Sh*t Crazy.

For April, this is hell; she has become obsessed with this situation. She can’t think of anything else right now. She is so afraid that she is about to loose everything, her home, her job, her man and her mind. April’s Fiancé is now in a full-blown relationship with the side chic.

He says that he wants to keep them both. April’s default response is “Ain’t nobody got time for that”, but she stays and tries to compromise. She just can’t do it. April is unable the watch the man she had planned on marring, be all lovey dovey with the side chic. The Breakdown begins.

Last night April and me talked and she was full swing in “F*%K It” mode about her relationship. Saying things like “He don’t give a fuck about Me.” and “I really don’t want to go home.” She was pissed off and she was planning her escape. I can relate to what she is going through, I have had my heart broken some many times that I stopped keeping track. I advised her to jump off the Titanic, “Your relationship is sinking, JUMP”.

Then I called her today to check on her, and make sure she made it through the night without altercation”. Well when she answered the phone I was startled by how good she sounded. Her voice had a high tone of joy and laughter that I hadn’t heard from her in quite some time. She was giggly and upbeat. This was not the person that I was on the phone with the night before.

Before I could ask her why she was so elated, she told me. Her man had shifted his attention and love back to her, for the first time in months. She told me that he asked her to spend the day with him and he told how she was pretty. Then they topped it off with some make up sex.

She told me that she was so happy right now and it was apparent. This got me to thinking, which is why I’m writing this post. I wanted to know what actually took place inside of her mind that caused such a massive shift so fast. How could she go from being upset and done with her fiancé to being happy in love like a first time teenager?

The shift that made the difference came from with her. The few words and common action from her fiancé was just a trigger. they did not make the difference. April chose to view her circumstances differently and that made the difference.

Here’s what became clear to me at the moment that I observed this, it’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do with it.

What do you make it mean and how do you react. You can give a persons behavior a good or bad rating. You can over react or under react.

April, at any time could have chosen to leave or stay. She and she only is in control of her happiness. She just doesn’t know it. She believes that she has to wait for others to act for her to determine how she feels.

Stop waiting for the world to change, you be the change in the world you want to see. You be the change in your relationship. You be the change on your job. You be the change I your family. You be the change in your community.

If you want to be happy, then be happy. Say this to your self-everyday

“If it’s to be it’s up to me”

People Who Make A Difference In The World: Raudel Torres

Raudel Torres talk bubbles

People who make a difference in the world.

Earlier this year I was in Las Vegas for 10 days. I gambled away money I shouldn’t have, I consumed more food than I should have and I drank entirely to much alcohol. When in Sin City, do as Sinners do. I went to a Cirque Du Soleil.  I visited red rock canyon, attended an arts festival and I hangout with some local and out of town friends. All of this was great, yet none of it was the most memorable part of my trip.

The thing that most impacted me was an amazing human being that I met walking down Fremont Street in “Old Las Vegas” His name is Raudel Torres. He was sitting on the pavement, in the middle of the street between four casinos. He sat there, legs crossed in a Lotus pose, greeting people as they passed by with two simple phrases. “Enjoy your life” and “I Love You”.

His expression of love for humanity blew me away. I was truly touched, moved and inspired by him. Of course I had to stop and have a few words with him. I wanted to know what was the driving force behind this great gesture of love for the world.

He told me that this was his first time doing this and that he was inspired by the loss of his grandmother, who had recently died.

He went on to say that he was very close to his grandmother and that loosing her had him develop a greater appreciation for life.  He now realizes just how precious life and love is and that he wants to share this revelation with the world. He wants people to know that they don’t have to do anything to receive love and that life is great just as it is right here and now.

I believe that Raudel’s act of love takes courage and self-confidence. I imagined myself doing it and the first thing that crossed my mind is what would others think of me. Would they think I’m crazy, on drugs or might they think I wanted something from them.

I realized that I was more moved by my fear of other and what they thought, than I was by my love and desire to generate love and make the world a better place.

This bothered me because I pride myself on being someone who is committed to bringing love to the world. I realize that I truly have to stop being concerned about what others think of me and just do what I’m here to do.

Let them think what they think, let them say what they say and I should just be who I am. This is a huge breakthrough for me.

I would have never thought that I would have gotten all of that from him.

It also got me to see how the smallest things I do could possibly have a great impact on others. The simplest act of love and kindness could change someone’s life forever.

Since meeting Raudel, I can more clearly see the power of one and the power of love.

Thank you Raudel for give me this possibility. I can’t wait to get back to Vegas again and spend some time in the presence of such a powerful loving man as he. Who knows I might even join him squatting on Fremont Street. I’ll start working on my Lotus position.

Managing The Human Condition

Managing the human condition

There are countless things that we all experience simply because it part of what it is to be human. This is commonly referred to as “The Human Condition.”
The difference in a Great  Life and an awful life is determined by how well you mange the human condition.
Everybody hurts, Everybody cries, everybody lives, everybody dies
Everybody poops, everybody pee’s, everybody eats, everybody sleeps
Everyone worries, everyone frets, everyone remembers, everyone forgets
Everyone doubts and Everyone belives, Everyone is
Your success in life is cleary determined by how you deal with life “As It Really Is”
You can’t manage something that you don’t understand. You can’t understand how a thing works without allowing it work. You have to let it work, on order to figure out how it works. If your trying to control how it works, there is no way you can truly understand how it actually works. Therefore your wanting control over things will be the cause that limits your control over the thing.
So the key to managing the human condition is to surrender to how life really is and work from there with a positive mental attitude towards everything.  That my friend is the one of the “KEYS TO THE KINGDOM.”
There is nothing more beneficial to life than a great attitude towards life. Your attitude is your life. Whatever your attitude is, your life will mirror it. Bad attitude, Bad Life, Good Attitude, Good Life, Great Attitude, Great Life.
Who wants to be managed by a person with a bad attitude. How many of us have had a boos with a bad attitude in some way or another. This type of boss made work unpleasant whenever they were around.
Well, now imagine that you are managing yourself with a bad attitude and you don’t even know it, just like you awful boss didn’t think he or she had bad a attitude. What if that’s just the way you are managing your human condition, with a bad attitude? Then maybe that is the reason that you life looks the way it does.
Things have to be dealt with powerfully in order to feel powerful around them. There is no power in pretending, True power is generated only in believing in what is real.
You can’t be happy by pretending that you are not human and that you do not suffer from what it is to be human.
The best way to manage The Human Condition is to except your life as it really is and manage it with an attitude that makes you feel great everyday. Then and only then will you experience the riches and the blessing of life, which is the only real wealth that exist.
