New 45 Day Challenge

Bob Doyle's at it again. He's having another 45 day challenge starting in April sometime. Sorry for the ambiguity, there's a lot of voices in my head this morning.

Bob also revamped his Wealth Beyond Reason site. If you haven't been there in a while go check it out. He walks you through the whole process. No more thinking! (kidding)

But seriously, he does take the guesswork out of what to do and when to do it. That way you can focus your energies on what you desire, not how to get them.

It has taken me a while to get here, but I have the sense that the stars are lining up in my particular universe. Being in real estate has been challenging (to say the least), but I've simply found a new way to do business, and it is much more lucrative than the plodding method I utilized in my last business model. I should have my first taste of success within a week, most probably on Monday, then I have the sense that the floodgates of prosperity will gush open.

Perhaps the Universe was testing the depths of my desire? Hmmmm.......

A 45 Day Manifestation

Wow, this challenge is taking off. Bob notified us that there were over 1500 signups even before the official announcement. If you haven't yet visited I'll give the brief overview.

It is a social network much like Facebook, only of course, it focuses on members that are interested in using the law of attraction to better their lives. Imagine having an entire network of people who share your passion and desire to manifest great relationships, beautiful surroundings, spiritual growth, humanitarian efforts, etc. Napolean Hill talks of a Mastermind group as an essential for anyone who wants to accomplish great things in their life. Well, this is the place to find yours.

My first thought for this challenge was to manifest an exact amount of money. It would be easily measurable and so I would quickly know how well I had done. However, having been reminded that money is only a means to an end and really doesn't have any power in and of itself, I've decided to pursue something I am deeply passionate about. We're not supposed to reveal anything until the official launch on July 20th so I'll keep it under wraps for now. Just learn from my mistake and make sure you focus on exactly what you want, not a pile of green slips of paper with dead notables on them.

Here's to making all our dreams come true.

Accepting the Challenge

Apologies to anyone who got multiples of my last blog. I was having trouble with the fonts and had to republish several times. And still didn't get it figured out. Oh well.

One thing I have learned working with a personal coach is that it pays handsomely to be accountable for what you say you are going to do. In this vein, I am, of course, accepting Bob Doyle's challenge to focus on at least one thing I want to attract into my life, allowing it to come into my life, and I will do it publicly so there's no backing out! At least not easily and without losing face.

One huge challenge that I have is maintaining an abundance mindset. While I truly believe that there is abundance, lately I have been hearing a little voice from my upbringing that tells me that money is tight, I have to be frugal, I have to work hard to have enough to get by. Both of my parents are still alive and I am still getting this message every time I talk to them. And even though their influence has waned considerably as I've become and adult, some of these things are pretty deep seated.

Alana and I have had a couple of talks about this subject over the last couple of days and she has similar stories from her youth. I would venture a guess that this is quite common. So that is why I've decided to make this the focus of my challenge. It's easily measurable which makes mid-course corrections more obvious. And I would love any and all feedback you can give me, dear readers. Perhaps this is something we can overcome together.

The Challenge officially starts July 20th. Looking forward to seeing you there.

The Wealth Beyond Reason Challenge

As most of you know, Alana and I were deeply impressed by "The Secret" and have adopted the law of attraction into our own lives. One of my boyhood friends was a cast member and is well known for his knowledge on this subject.

I wanted to let you know about something that is happening that you'll be interested in if there's anything in your life that you've been wanting to do or accomplish, but for whatever reason, been unable to do so.

This project is being facilitated by Bob Doyle, who you may know from the movie "The Secret", and more recently, "The Opus", or you may be familiar with his Wealth Beyond Reason program.

In any case, you need to know that Bob is a strong advocate for the power of personal transformation in all areas of life, and he has proven himself able to help thousands of people to do that over the years.

Bob has just announced what he's calling "The Boundless Living" challenge, and it's an extraordinary opportunity for you and anyone else you know to experience the kind of transformation I'm talking about in virtually any area of your life you can imagine.

I won't ramble on here about it because there is a short video that explains everything here:

Please realize that there is nothing to buy, and there is no fee to be a part of this challenge, and you will have an amazing support system should you decide to take this on.

Check it out. You're going to be hearing a lot more about it from people other than me in the coming days, I'm sure. :)

Wishes versus Desires

I know I've written about this before, but I've had three separate instances in the last week where folks just weren't seeing the difference between a wish and a desire. In the realm of the law of attraction there is a vast chasm between the two.

A wish is simply that. You wish something were so. There is no emotion on your part. No effort. No real longing, yearning, or even much thought after the fact. (Sigh)"I wish things were better."

Can you imagine a less effective way of telling the Universe what you want?

Now a desire gets you out of bed in the morning. It creates or fuels emotions when you think about it. Turn it into a burning desire that you just will not let rest until you have it, now you're on to something. Just remember to not get wrapped up in how it will be delivered to you. That's not your job. You supply the intention (goal, command, call it what you will) and put the emotion behind it. Think of and write down all the why's of your desire. Why do you want it so badly?

May I never hear the words again "Wishing doesn't make it so". No one ever said it did. Desire is what changes the world. It's what changes your world.

Why does this keep happening to me?

Have you ever asked yourself this question?

I mean really, who hasn't?

Did you ever stop to really figure it out, or were you looking for a little sympathy?

I have been reading "What the Bleep" and listening to Abraham-Hicks lately and I got to wondering about this. I was told many years ago, before I had heard of the LOA, that life will keep handing you tests until you pass and move on to the next level. No judgements, no pressure, move at your own pace.

Now, in light of what I've been learning, I look at this from an evolutionary standpoint. Not physical evolution which takes millennia, but spiritual evolution that you can accomplish in one lifetime. According to A-H we are all here in physical form because we willed ourselves into being. And the reason we did that was to have new experiences and grow spiritually.

So, to answer the original question, I think we find ourselves in similar situations because we have not learned the lesson from before and so God, life, the universe (whatever you're comfortable with), keeps giving us chances to learn what we need to learn and move on to the next level.

If you truly believe in the LOA then you must accept that everything, and I mean everything, that comes into your life was attracted by you. If you don't like what you're attracting then you should figure out why you are. Remember, most of what we attract is from a subconscious level and provides us with an opportunity to work on an aspect of our self that we would have continued to ignore had the catalystic event not occurred.

In other words, don't see these situations as "Woe is me", see them as "Whoa, it's me!". They are put there for your benefit. Your job is to figure out what part of you is creating it, work on that part of you ( an excellent resource is Bill Harris' Centerpointe), then put it into "emotional retirement" and move on to the next level of your development.

Remember, as we clear away the old, we make room for the new.
