I had an awesome day yesterday, I woke up in a great mood and the day just kept getting better! Yesterday proved to be extremely productive. There is certainly something to say about the power of feeling good. I started my day with a nice breakfast, music and one of my favourite tv shows. Then I got my health card renewed, I went shopping and I went out for lunch with some of my family. I know that I got to have these enjoyable experiences because I had attracted them. By feeling good, I set off a domino effect that continued throughout the whole day. I got to connect with a few of my friends whom I haven't talked to in a long time which was very sweet!
One of my friends told me of his dad's health condition so I wondered how I could help them out. I thought about it for a while and then another friend of mine told me of a woman named Mimi Kirk. This woman is remarkably healthy and youthful for her age. Stay tuned to find out more about Ms. Kirk and what she does to stay healthy and feel good!
So, I woke up this morning and said to myself, "Andre, there comes a time in your life when you just gotta say screw it and just do what you are trying to do." I made the decision to put my fears aside and go full force into making my business a success and achieve my goals. I'm currently focusing on learning how to effectively market Remembering Our Potential via online mediums. I have also decided not to worry about my romantic life because it will come in due time though I will not let it fade into a distant dream.
I am reminded of a line from this week's episode of Glee about becoming what you want, not just dreaming about it. I'm currently working on embodying this philosophy. You can talk about doing something all you want though if you don't take some kind of action to initiate it, chances are, it won't happen.
A lot of things in today's world involve money and if you don't have the amounts that various circumstances require of you, you are out of luck. I know how frustrating and stressful this notion can be. I receive a fixed monthly income from a government program that allows me to get by in life. Getting by is not enough for me. Is it enough for you? Do you want to be able to do what you want without worrying about the amounts of money you have?
I have been looking at the previous posts I've written and tagging them so that they are searchable and a little more accessible to you. I am noticing that I really have changed and grown as a person. I used to believe that I had to establish myself as a leading positive force in the world as quickly as I could lest something terrible happened and I would not have the ability to help correct it. I saw the kind of crap that goes on in this world and I really thought that something horrific was going to happen. I schooled myself in topics such as personal development, spirituality, sustainable living and the current issues in this world. My goal was to learn as much as I could with all the speed that I could muster so that I would be prepared for whatever was to come, though I'm not motivated by the sense of urgency anymore.
I have two ideologies that act as my present motivation. I know I can make lasting positive changes to the world, I know that I can manifest my desires. I also know that life can be extremely challenging and the only one that can make your life better is you. You should become your own light when you find yourself in the dark because if you do, you'll make it through. I have been through hell and back and hell may be toasty though it isn't easy, so, I have it on good authority that perseverance pays off.
I used to be a very intense person, spending a lot of time and energy into meeting people. I don't think that I am any less intense, I just feel that I am investing my energy into different things now. I'm still very much interested in meeting and collaborating with others though the need, urgency and the fear of failing to do so are gone. As I was listening to the latest Our Wish Radio show, I thought about far I've come and how much I've grown.
My progress shines throughout the posts on this blog. I am reminded of what the minister said to me at my oma's funeral. He said that this blog is important and I agree that it is. Not only do I have the chance to help people through what I write though I am giving myself the opportunities to grow with each post that I write. I put a lot of energy and creativity into this site and as a result I have become less crazy. I am more calm as well as confident now. I seem to have a sense of knowing that things are working out for me. I know that the business I am co-creating will become successful and I know that I am attracting the types of relationships that I want in my life.
You can call it magick, manifestation, the law of attraction, good fortune or whatever you want, it works! Some of you know how much I depend on my computer and how much I really didn't like not having it around, well guess what. I have it back. I got my computer back yesterday evening and it's working! This post is brought to you today by my computer. I will eventually get a new computer though having the Compaq back gives me some time to find funding so that my mother's mind will be at ease. My computer isn't in perfect health though it will work for now. The prognosis that Staples gave my laptop on Friday was grave so what caused its recovery? Was it magick or was it something else entirely?
I believe that I manifested and co-created having my computer back and I feel that it was a collective effort - more than just my thoughts were focused on my computer. Ever since I started to believe in myself again, I noticed that I can manifest the things I want with more ease and speed than before. Belief in myself is the key that is allowing me to consciously utilize my potential.
I think that belief in one's self is the key to unlock most people's potential. Some people go through their lives without having that "yes, my life is awesome" feeling. Well do not fret, for no matter what your current situation is, you have the ability and potential to have anything that you desire. Just be and believe in yourself and the rest will follow.
I am reminded of what a friend of mine once asked me. Her question was, "if we were never told what we couldn't do, could we do anything?"
My bridge is almost complete. I thought of the bridge analogy when I was explaining to a friend how frustrating it was, not knowing how to get from point A to point B. I didn't know how to get from a young guy with a disability struggling to succeed, to a guy who is happily living a life that he wholeheartedly enjoys. Now, allow me to give you a progress report of my bridge.
Yesterday, I was able to talk out a few more of the fear blocks I have and I could see a clearer picture of my path. I have decided not to worry about not having the type of assistance I'd like and go to college. I am also not worried about going to school to get the "good paying job", so today, my mum and I had a look at the programs that Conestoga College has. The programs that I am interested in, like Graphic Design and Entrepreneurship are offered online which is awesome because I will be able to accomplish them at my own pace and where I currently have the most support.
My mum said that I will have to wait until November to apply, she also stated that she does not know whether I'd get a diploma or not. I thought that was okay and I don't care what kind of certification I receive because I already know what my career paths are.
My computer has been broken for two weeks now and I was really freaking out about it. When I am using my computer I feel connected to the world and it is where I can be the most independent. Being without my computer is somewhat of a downer though my dad is letting me borrow his computer so I am grateful for that. Although, not having my computer lead me to gain the insight that is helping me move in the direction of what I truly want to experience in my lifetime.
I took the opportunity to look within myself and I realized that I was blocking my own success. I truly felt incapable of achieving my goals without some kind of assistance. I didn't believe that I could be successful on my own. If you want to read the story about how I got to my insight, check out the post I wrote entitled "I am what you can become".
Sometimes what we perceive as a loss is actually an opportunity for growth. Staples called my house on Friday evening and said that somehow liquid got into my computer and fried the motherboard. So, I have to buy another computer sometime soon though my mum is worried about it because my current income isn't terribly high. However, I am not worried and I see this as just another hurdle for me to jump over.
