YIPPIE KI YAY, I’m grinding away. That’s what week 2 was feeling like for me. Guess what? It wasn’t about me struggling with the class. It was about the other %!#% going on (feel free to fill in that strange cacophony of symbols). For some reason or another, I thought that I would breeze through the 1st 10wks like a gentle breeze flowing through the air. I seemed to have forgotten that what we plan perfectly down to the most intricate detail rarely works out that way. An errand here, problems with the new computer that I purchased, practice, webinars, and to top it off, purchasing a new phone that took all day yesterday to finalize at the store. Anything worth while getting sometimes not easy at all. But I still managed to keep doing the work. One thing from lesson 2 that I kept thinking about was what it said about the Subconscious and the Conscious. The Subconscious being the seat of all habit and behavior , that wondrous part of our brain that never sleeps. That has limitless resources to call upon and is the link to all of our creative spiritual qualities and thoughts. The Conscious part making all the decisions and being the “watchman” of the Subconscious. My objective has been for a while now, to have both of these wondrous mechanisms working harmoniously with one another.
Every challenge that I’ve faced I triumphed over this week (Yay). Doesn’t mean that I was cool calm and collected every moment. Ok, so there were moments where you could have fried an egg on my head. Hey I’m just as human as the next person. But from just practicing continually and acquiring a positive mental attitude, using the Law of Dual Thought, The Law of Substitution and controlling my emotions has led me to acquire things that I wondered how I would be able to make it happen. Needed a new computer: got it. Last year year I went through the whole course on a wonky one that continually froze during the webcasts that had me using all sorts of nice words as I frantically tried to get back on the webcast. Needed new musical equipment: got it. Passed my DOT Medical examination only after I went back the next day. The first day I went my blood pressure was up a bit, so it was suggested by the doctor that I come back the following day. It was battle of keeping any negative thoughts about the next day out of my mind. I kept feeding my subconscious nothing but positive thoughts. The next day I arrived bright and early. When I arrived, I was surprised to see an entirely different staff, doctor included. Everything went well and I passed my physical (hmmm…. a moment to think about). Ain’t making this %#%* up. Even went to have new sim cards put in my phone, only to show up at the right time and place to get a shown a promotional deal that I jumped all over( I actually needed them) 2 expensive phones that actually lowered my bill. I took a moment and thought about what transpired and said to myself, ” what the hell is going on here?” Then I felt a moment of gratitude and thankfulness, acknowledging to myself that the knowledge I have acquired in this course and applied daily though action with courage, faith and belief, is so inspiring and mind blowing that seeing the things you’re constantly thinking about start to manifest. Goosebumps all over me baby. There’s more stuff ’bout to jump off, but that’s talk for another time. I can’t begin to tell you of all the wonderful experiences I have had from just casually engaging into people I don’t know throughout the day. Acts of kindness I
perform as well as people doing them for me. I really think that’s cool and sometimes I tear up a little. It has put the word “excitement” again in my life everyday. Yes I am that “New Man with a New Life” right now. I embrace grinding out everyday knowing that there will be a big payoff in the end. I’m waiting to see what’s up with my DMP. My PPN’S are Liberty and Recognition for Creative Expression. I’m starting to feel the pendulum swinging a little more my way. I want enthusiasm to engulf me everyday. I’m glad that I can never take even the smallest thing for granted. I’m an Enthusiastic Adventurer seeking new discoveries eternally. Just call me “AL the Grinder”. These are not just mere words but my way of life as I see it. 😎
