I Was There It Could Have Happened but I Blew It

If this has happened to you, you know how it feels to have been so close that you could taste it, then look back at that rarest of moments, when everything could have lined up perfectly and your life could have been propelled into an entirely new more prosperous direction and you’re left uttering those words, “I was there! It could have happened, but I blew It.” regrettably.

These rare moments are what I refer to as “lightning strike” moments, and if you are ready at the moment of that strike of lightning, you can benefit greatly. Lighting, as rare as it is, can be capitalized upon if you are ready, and it has been going on for years, from the ancient healers who would watch a pond of water atop a hill, waiting for lightning to strike, so he or she could retrieve healing lightning water to be used as an antibiotic for the tribe, to the mid-1700s when Benjamin Franklin conducted his famous kite-and-key experiment that led to the invention of the Tesla coil, an electrical resonant transformer circuit, by inventor Nikola Tesla in the pre-1900s, and countless other developments by which many have profited wildly.

I believe that this could happen to you, not to be hit by physical lightning but to be visited by that moment that comes without warning and by which you will be likely unprepared to profit from that particular moment in time. If you are not ready, the moment will slip by, unnoticed by your friends, family, or others, who may only hear of it by your telling of the moment that you could have made it had you only known or been better prepared.

Lightning Doesn’t Strike Twice?

I have many clients who were visited by such a moment and want to be ready if it ever happens again. Oh, you say, you could never be hit by lightning twice. Right? Say that to Roy Sullivan who was hit by lightning 7 times and lived through each strike. Say that to Deborah Brown who won a single lottery 30 times in one day. Or Richard Lustig, who won seven lotteries between 1993 and 2010, and continued to cash in on those concurrent lightning strikes by writing his book, Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning the Lottery. I know two people who have won the lottery twice.

A Moment on TV

Bobak Ferdowsi, AKA The Mohawk Guy
The Mowhawk Guy

You just never know when or where it’s going to strike. Like the guy who was working for NASA in the summer of 2012, who accidentally was caught by cameras during the Curiosity landing, sporting a mohawk haircut with stars carved into the sides. That was it. Next thing you know Bobak Ferdowsi, AKA “The Mohawk Guy” is pals with the President and First Lady, featured in national historical events, becomes a TV show and movie actor, and a spokesperson for the youth of the world to take an interest in math, science, and space technology.

Not unlike my being a “witness to a burning building” example, a young man, Antoine Dodson, is featured in a newscast following the breaking and entering and attempted rape of his sister which Dodson interrupted as the assailant fled the scene. His statement to the camera was all that it took.

The Gregory Brothers captured the vocal track and featured it in, “The Bed Intruder Song” and they split the writing credits and royalties with Dodson. Dodson parlayed his earnings into online retailing, created phone apps including a sex offender tracker, is featured in commercial advertisements, and a reality show.  Kevin Antoine Dodson, the American Internet celebrity, singer, and actor has moved his family from “the projects” in Huntsville to LA.

A Post Goes Viral

Viral Olive Garden Review
Viral Olive Garden Review

Then there is the foodie columnist who writes a review about Olive Garden in 2012 that goes viral. Later, on August 27, 2013, Marilyn Hagerty releases her book, Grand Forks: A history of American dining in 128 reviews, a no-brainer, method to follow up on the media sensation, as it was only a reprint of her original reviews, but she was ready. There are so many countless examples of someone putting something out there, with no intention of it going viral, but it does.

Be Ready

And that, my friend, is the point, the readiness. Be ready for when that lightning strike happens. And that is exactly what I do with my clients, to ready them in such a way, that benefitting massively from the lightning strike is a part of the plan. So, you never have to worry about thinking, “I was there! It could have happened, but I blew It.”

Oh, and get this, my plan is so good that you don’t even need the lightning strike to make it work.

Change Your Life or the World by Changing Books

As a Transfiguration Specialist, this is my gift to share with the world. When it looks like there is little or no chance to make a significant change, I can see the path from here to there, and in every case, if the desired change is massive, changing books is almost mandatory. That is to say, you could skip this step, and increase the cost and time necessary to see the change become reality.

Temporary Change

Changing books is not necessary for temporary change or doing what you have to do to make you feel better for a while, like losing 20 pounds before your wedding, or getting a big-screen TV. You could use changing books written by someone else to help inspire you to do the work necessary. To become an expert you could practice a skill for 10,000 hours (Malcolm Gladwell) or you could obtain all the expert knowledge necessary by reading seven changing books (Mark Victor Hansen). And doing so may increase your odds of riding this new wave for more lasting change.

Lasting Change

Lasting change is more elusive, for many reasons. The most common is that every one of us has a life frequency that matches acceptable mediocrity. A place where we are comfortable enough. Things aren’t that bad, and they could certainly get worse. This is your life rut, and it is easy to get stuck in it. This is where changing books can help to make all the difference.

If your life was a book, writing the next chapter might not be enough. You might be better off changing books altogether.

If the change you want to see, either in you, your life or the world, is great, you will have to change. Changing books is also a metaphor for your life. If your life was a book. You can easily look back and see the chapters of your life, and you can have an idea about how the next chapter might be. But if the change is great, it will require changing books completely. It may not be enough to expect due to the previous momentum (or lack of it) in the previous chapters to make the leap.

That’s why we need changing books, to help catapult us to the next level.

Permanent Change

Even more elusive is a permanent change. You desire to see the change and to be a part of it so much that you might be willing to do almost anything. This is where it helps to have a coach and moderator on your side, to help you see pitfalls in what might seem like an opportunity to push your agenda ahead today but may be ultimately detrimental in the long run.

Stuff Happens

You will never see more obstacles appear than when you decide to be a part of the change, any change, and changing books along the way can be very helpful in circumventing (or even eliminating) barricades to your progress.

The Biggest Obstacle to Permanent Change

You. Your old life. Remember that life that was okay, not so bad? Your former life will be calling you back. And when things are looking more like work than fun, that old life may not look so bad. You might think like chucking the whole idea might be worthwhile for the relief that comes from just bailing out completely.

You May Be Addicted to Your Old Life

Or your previous life, the one that you left to start your journey of massive change, is an addiction, which is an entirely new challenge to consider.

Changing Books

Do you know how you get deeply involved in a book? You’re so enthralled that you just have to keep reading, you can’t wait to find out what happens next. If you are reading a huge novel or series, the strength of the story could be so compelling, that the rest of your life’s potential could fall by the wayside.

In my work with clients, many of them refer to me as the book guy. That is to say that I am so passionate about writing a book, that most anyone who comes within a few feet of me will be contemplating the idea of writing a book, if not working on writing a book of their own.

Why write a book?

I believe that a book is the most powerful tool in the world to have the biggest impact in your life. Today, if you have a desire to see anything in your life change, you can influence the change at little or no cost to you by writing a book.

Try this: Finish this sentence:

The thing I would most like to change in my life would be:

_______________________ .

In most cases, you could accomplish this change by:

Writing a Book .

Of course, that is reduced to its simplest form. More often than not, you would have to do other things as well to accomplish the change you would like to see, but the writing of a book can do much of the heavy lifting for you.

But wait, there’s more…

Let’s take this to a whole new level.

Finish this sentence:

The thing I would most like to change in the world today would be:

_______________________ .

In most cases, you could accomplish this change by:

Writing a Book .

There is no limit to the scope your impact can have by writing a book, and it’s not as hard to do as you might think.

This is based on my life’s work that started in book writing for therapeutic interventions, personal growth, and massive lifestyle change. My work then expanded to business growth and wealth creation, then morphed into expanding social awareness and change. All the while using the writing of books, that I refer to as “Changing Books.”

As if by magic, my clients who were just the guy or gal next door, were able to achieve massive results, by making the writing of changing books, and yes, it will likely take more than one to get the job done.

It’s not like changing books are the one-stop-shop for getting the job done, but they can be the most powerful tool to assist you in getting what you want to be done in your life, finances, or the world. And, today, there is no financial barrier to making it happen.

Let’s take a look at the most popular changes people might like to see.

What is Your Body Trying to Tell You?

Maybe it’s time to listen to what your body is trying to tell you. If your life is not going the way that you thought it should go, your body, all its parts, right down beneath the cellular level, even your DNA naturally knows what is best for you, and is communicating with you, trying to help you along the way, but you are not listening.

Your Body’s Built-in Warning System

There are people who are aware of this technology and are harmoniously tuned in to every beat of their heart, every breath they take, every feeling they feel, and use them as clues to what is happening around them.

Based on information communicated by your body, you can have a much better approach to life, situations, and circumstances, and can quickly make decisions based on what your body is telling you.

When your body speaks, the range can go from silently subtle to hugely obvious, yet most of us still do not listen to what the body is trying to say to us, even when it is painfully obvious that this communication is taking place.

Here are a dozen of the ways your body is trying to get your attention.

Top 12 Body Speaks

1. Knee-jerk Rejection

Like your first instinctual response to blurt out “No,” or, “No, thank you,” Is the best response for you. Especially when it just sort of blurts out, almost like you didn’t even have a chance to think it through first. More often than not, this thinking-through process causes more pain and suffering than you might have otherwise desired.

Rather than inviting others to test their skills of persuasion or negotiation on you, trusting your instinctive first reaction will allow you to build your skillset for setting boundaries. When it comes to the response of others in your circle of influence, if you haven’t been in the setting boundaries business in the past, when you start to do so, you may find that they get angry when you set boundaries.

2. Something Not Right

Your body will give you signs that something or someone is not going to be good for you. Like when you first meet someone and think to yourself, “There’s something not right about this person,” but you can’t quite put your finger on it or rationalize why you might feel this way.

Most of us will ignore this instinctive clue, and allow this person to convince us how wonderful they are, and let them talk us out of our initial reaction to meeting them, and the more we do so, the easier it is to not listen to the body the next time, until you end up not hearing what your body has to say, no matter how hard it tries to communicate to us.

3. Dreadful Feeling

If you are in the presence of another person and you feel a sudden feeling of utter dread in your gut (for men) or in your heart (for women), as if you felt as though something horrible was going to happen, like this person was going to be in a traumatic fatal accident, or you might feel death looking over your shoulder.

You rationalize yourself out of this feeling because there is nothing to base this (otherwise random) feeling on. But your body is trying to warn you that letting your guard down or allowing this person to access your precious inner circle may have dire consequences.

If you think back to every time, you ever felt this way, you will likely remember letting this person have access to you and yours, and now when you look back, the relationship has since ended. More likely than not, it ended badly. And it is also likely that you have numbed yourself to this reaction, and you are not alone, most of us have done this as well.

In a court of law, “I just had a weird feeling when I met this guy,” is not going to be respected or valued as reliable testimony because it can easily be instantly discarded with a wave of the hand and uttering some disrespectful phrase, such as, “It might just have been something you ate.”

4. Twitching/Cramps

Involuntary twitching of the eye or hand, pumping of the leg, or muscle cramps from small muscles of the toes to larger muscles like the toes, can be your body trying to get your attention.

This is a good time to start looking around for clues. What was taking place at the time of the involuntary interruption? Collect data, and if you are in a position to record your findings, you will be amazed how things you may not have noticed otherwise, make perfect sense later.

5. Energy Drain

Have you ever been in the presence of someone who you feel like all your life force was drained from your body when you were exposed to them?

This is a hint that you should probably limit their exposure to you. We refer to them as energy vampires and at the very least, this individual is toxic as they have a negative impact on the quality of your life. If this is a family member, you may not be able to cut them completely out of your life, but you could avoid them when you can.

6. Anxiety or Panic

If you life is normally on an even keel and you suddenly have an anxious feeling or panic that appears to be unfounded on the surface, again, this is an excellent time to start looking around for clues in real-time. Pay attention to what is happening around you and document it.

7. Bloody Nose

Some people experience an unexpected bleeding nose for no apparent reason. I mean, you were just minding your own business, and then all of a sudden, your nose begins to bleed. You were not in a bar fight, nothing even touched your nose, but here you are bleeding from the nose for who knows why.

Your body can respond to a potentially negative situation or circumstance by a drastic increase of blood pressure which could cause your nose to bleed unexpectedly.

8. Pain

Ever get a sudden pain in your (insert any location on or within your body) that shouldn’t have any pain there? You didn’t suffer an injury in that location, you don’t have any disease associated with that spot, it’s just painful without a logical reason why.

That is communication in progress. Now, it might be communication about a physical ailment that should be attended to, but that aside, it is your body telling you something is wrong.

9. Skin Disorders

Does your hand start itching when you shake that person’s hand? Do you break out in a rash after hanging out with that person? Do you get blisters on your feet (or anyone else) following exposure to that person?

You may experience any kind of skin-related reaction to circumstances that do not serve you, such as when you do an overtime, or have to take on a task that is not congruent with your life goals.

You can mask these warning body expressions by many methods and continue to desensitize this method of communication, and they may subside after a while, but when you look back, you will wish you paid better attention to your body.

10. Accidents

Are you more susceptible to accidents than before? Have you lost your otherwise sure footing? Do you lose your balance? If you have eliminated health concerns such as ear infections, changes in vision, multiple sclerosis, and brain tumor, and still are living life as an unskilled stunt person, these incidents can be your body telling you about something being severely out of whack with the manner in which you are living your life.

Your being accident-prone may vanish once you have taken the wheel of your life and got it back on track again.

11. Chronic Illness or Disease

Not listening to what your body has to say will have your body kicking up the intensity of its communication methods which can lead to your body’s allowing you to contract a disease or to suffer chronic complications from illnesses that trouble you more and more over time.

Your body is saying that something is tragically out of balance.

I have found through the years in my practice that chronic illness and disease are clues to something significant being out of balance in a patient’s life. No (or few) doctors will press beyond diagnosing diseases or treating symptoms, but if someone has been suffering for six months or more, or has a life-threatening disease, I help them to start looking more closely at their life.

Amazingly, if you can uncover these inconsistencies and sort them out, when balance is achieved, the suffering stops, the symptoms fade away, and spontaneous healing or a miracle occurs.

12. Deterioration and Death

If you resist listening to your body’s cues for long enough, it can give up. Your immune system can fail, and your body will age more rapidly as you are unable to heal during the recovery-and-repair cycle that normally takes place while you sleep.

This is not to say that all or any of these symptoms are unrelated to other issues, rather, in my practice in many cases, these have been common indicators that pointed to significant changes which needed to be made in a client’s life.

Once the personal issues were determined and resolved by the client, the symptoms vanished.

What is your body trying to tell you?

Alcoholics Drug Addicts and Freedom from Addiction

I owe a great deal of the person who I have become to the work I did early in my ministry. I worked in a religious drug and alcohol recovery rate that boasted a verifiable less than 3 percent recidivism rate. Compared to any other method of treatment, this was nothing less than miraculous.

I think it still goes on today with likely similar results, though I think that people with addictions are less likely to consider a religious solution to their vices these days unless it was the only option to get out of some legal entanglement and you can apprehend some conflict of interest in that scenario.

What about Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and all its variations? Well, for one, it does (and they do) rely heavily on leaning on the poser of God to deal with and hopefully overcome the strong compulsion that these kinds of addictions can present the victim with. There is a strong community of support of others who either have overcome or continue to struggle with the attending addiction.

While AA and its shirt-tailed cousins, are very popular and can be hugely effective over time, recidivism is still high, like 40 to 60% which is the average range of any drug or alcohol treatment modality. I think that says, with almost any type of intervention, half of the addiction victims will emerge from the process victorious. And interestingly, this same group of people will love highly resilient lives with the ability to overcome nearly any challenge they may face in life.

This suggests that half of the people who succumb to addictive persuasions do have the tendency to be distracted and lured into the addictive behavior, but also have the ability to tarry through the healing process with immense power and wisdom on the other side of the experience. They may fall victim to another vice, completely different from the one(s) they have previously overcome, which leads to a cycle. A cycle of passionate exploration with a potential of loss of self while on a particular exploration.

Since those early 3 percent days, I have always been intrigued by that religious method, which I would be resistant to using in the present-day because it would be considered too cultish in its structured approach, yet there were important takeaways that I do embrace and continue to have in my therapeutic toolkit today.

5 Steps to Freedom from Addiction

#1: Access Higher Power

Never underestimate the power of God,

or any energetic deity or power outside of oneself to enable anyone to miraculously change.

#2: You Are Unique

Avoid the curse of “labelizng”

or identifying with the vice, as focusing on the past will unavoidably draw you back under its spell

#3: You Are Victorious

Never be the victim

Victims have no true power over what may have happened in the past

#4: You Are Responsible

Take full responsibility

This sounds crazy, but there are many methods to get a person from here to there

#5: You Are a New Person

Transform through metamorphosis

Become someone completely new and start a new life that does not acknowledge or include the vice

I know that last one, becoming a “new person,” has you wriggling in your boots. It doesn’t sound right and definitely exposes its religious roots. You might think no one (or very few) would be interested in having a religious transformative experience to release one’s addiction(s).

I don’t (or very rarely) use the religious experience to invoke this transformative process anymore. I am much more likely to use the process of “modeling” borrowed from Hypnotherapy and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), encouraging the client to model his or her new life after someone they admire or could aspire to be.

Top Inspirational Celebrities

I have seen many people emerge from this process leading new lives inspired by celebrities, like

Lebron James, Keanu Reeves, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Dave Chappelle

Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Ellen Degeneres, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tyra Banks, Oprah Winfrey

I am not a person who follows celebrities. I know some celebrities but none of these, and I am very impressed at how these celebrities in particular do seem to inspire people to transform their lives based on the impressions they have left on the lives of my clients, to whom they are perfect strangers. I cannot testify to how these celebs actually live their lives, but I can say that I have seen the effects they have had on my clients to live new lives inspired by them. In that respect, they do appear to be incredible people.

Also, to be noted, is that I have come to a place where I am very tolerant and non-judgmental, something I borrowed from AA and Eastern religion, as well as not being deeply connected to any desired outcome which I borrowed from NLP and Reiki, because, after all is said and done, aren’t we all just doing the best we can with what we have? (I know I am. Why wouldn’t anyone else also be doing the same?)

I use these five steps currently in my practice, and not everyone will embrace them but most of my clients are open to them because they trust me and my (sometimes) unconventional ways of achieving powerful results that lead to metamorphosis in the lives of my clients.

While this short list of 5 steps to overcoming any addiction seems simplistic, the depth of each of these topics run very deep and the interpretation and deployment of them must be adjusted to each person and their addiction differently, based on the client’s life experience, so there is no rigidity in the process.

Being a more fluid process, which is not easily whittled down into a back and white step-by-step sequence makes it difficult for academics to consider. Yet there are many therapists, counselors, and coaches who are more sensitive and intuitive in nature and use my methods to help their clients who struggle with addictions.

 

 

It Wasn’t Me!

We know that there is a lot of stuff that comes in your email inbox that is loaded with scams, and chances are if you haven’t been bitten by one, there’s a good chance that you will be, and it may take a couple of times of being scammed before you get a sense of what a scam looks like. Then there’s the other thing that rhymes with scam and that’s “spam,” which is junk emails, and spammy phone calls and text messages that have leaked over into the cell phone arena.

Telemarketers are able to sniff out your name, address, and phone number and can call you carrying on what appears to be a normal personal call from someone local (may also be using spoofing software which masks their caller ID with a local number) making is all so innocent until they get to the scam or sales pitch.

And if that’s not enough, they have artificial intelligence-equipped robot telemarketers which are pretty good at carrying on a conversation with you until they slip up with an off-the-wall reply. And you ask,

Aren’t there laws against scams?

Yes, there are, but they only apply to individuals and businesses who are physically located within the United States of America and its territories. There is no legal recourse against a scammer from outside the USA posing as a business located in the USA.

Why are there so many spam emails, texts, and calls?

The obvious answer is that it works. So, these conmen, psychopaths, and cybercriminals keep making up new scams to send to your email or call you about on your phone every day, and they will use names that you know and trust.

I don’t know how many times Dr. Oz and Oprah Winfrey have been contacted about products they have supposedly endorsed, that they know nothing about.

With so many people looking for work, right now, they are even posing as Fortune 500 companies looking for “legitimate” remote workers.

It Wasn’t Me!

Then, there is me. Since 2020, apparently, I have been contacting people offering 20-million-dollar grants for non-profit funding in exchange for a raft of personal information, a one-page description of how you will use the money to make the world a better place, and a $750 deposit, which will be refunded when they receive the $20 Million.

Sad to say, if you get that 20 million dollar offer from me, it is a scam using my name, photo, and Internet presence – NOT ME. They make the offer look credible because if you check it out online, it was based on an article I posted in 2016 (which has long since expired). The people who checked in with me prior to taking action on the scam came out ahead, while the others were out the $750 and probably were victims to identity theft.

All that to say,

Look before you leap.

If an offer appears to be too good to be true, check it out first, and the offer is connected to a recognizable company or celebrity, check it out first. Call the company or check with the celebrity. Of course, celebrities may be harder to get through, but chances are, if you do a quick Internet search for the celebrity and the offer, you will find clear evidence, or a blanket statement from the company or person cited as a sponsor or endorsement, that denies any connection to the offer.

A few minutes spent checking it out before you hit the buy now or send button, or prior to giving any information over the phone, will put you miles ahead of the scam. So, do that first.

Drama or Dream

You have been charged with living out your journey as a human being on this planet. Yes, you came as a divinely inspired being with a purpose, plan, and your own song to sing, but likely have lost sight of this through the process of living your life to the best of your cognizant abilities.

With every breath you take every step you make in every moment of your life it is up to you to decide to experience episodic

Drama or Dream

The Choice is Yours

Any time you feel poorly, when you feel slighted, misunderstood, shamed, ridiculed, threatened, or victimized, it is up to you whether you will see this feeling and the scene that follows play out as drama or dream, the choice is yours.

If you feel, for any reason, your life is one with consummate drama, you will respond to any ill feeling in a way which charges the impending scenario with negative energy which will play out in a dramatic scene. Your response will feel justified in the outset but will have you feeling worse once the scene has played itself out.

On the other hand, if you respond to ill feelings with love, love will find a way to turn the scenario in a more pleasing direction. The charge in the Bible’s Matthew 5:44 supports this advice divinely, “love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”

This concept is nothing new and was previously noted in Proverbs 15:1 with, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Simple social science at work, even thousands of years ago.

Let’s face it,

Life is a bitch

More like a drunk ass

Life will throw all kinds of opportunities for you to choose drama or dream, it’s a bitch, or more like a drunk who’s had one too many, who is invading your space or pushing your buttons.

If a drunk bumps into you, causing you to spill your drink (chocolate milk), it’s up to you to make a decision. Will you put a negative spin on this, or will you approach the situation with love?

Want drama?

Your initial reaction would be to push the drunk back, and no one would blame you for asserting yourself in the defense of your personal space. When you look into the drunk’s eyes, you can see a lifetime of pain welling up which turns to rage, and now you’ve got a fight on your hands. The repercussions of which could tarry on for some time depending on how the fight goes.

How about the dream?

Or, when the drunk bumps into you, you can smile, put your hand on his should and say, “Whoa, Nelly! What happened to your sea legs, sailor?” As you look into the drunk’s eye, you can see a lifetime of pain. When he looks back at you, seeing eyes filled with love and you’re smiling at him, he feels loved, even for the slightest moment, and this simple gesture, you’re showing a bit of kindness, may be the bright spot in the drunk’s day (possibly his entire life). He might even offer to buy you another chocolate milk.

Does it work every time?

Though it may look like it doesn’t, or it may look like an utter failure at the outset, your kindness is remembered. It may take time and some other kindness shown by others to break through the thick walls which people who have experienced a great deal of pain in their life have built around their hearts to protect themselves from ever being hurt again.

So, they may respond inappropriately. They may reject your kindness.

Instead of being offended, maybe you could muster enough love in you to have compassion for someone in this condition. For God’s sake, don’t point out that you are aware of the drunk’s condition. Just remember that if it weren’t for God’s grace, you might be in the same place as the drunk.

Even if you do not see the immediate rewards for your benevolent act, it does work every time. After all, he’s doing the best he can with what he has, and aren’t all of us just doing the same?

Just love him and bless him as he makes it through another day. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day for, maybe not, but we are no better than he, for in our own ways, we can be a little reckless and bump into things in life which catch us by surprise, too.

It’s on you, whether you live your life in drama or dream by simply choosing love over defense.

Here’s more on the Awakening to True Love Workshop…

Ever wonder why your relationships just don’t work out right?

In the beginning, you feel as though you’ve met your one true love and it’s not long before this magnificent love dream come true devolves into your worst nightmare.

Top 10 Reasons Relationships Fail

Desperate to save your precious dream, you explore all the challenges that caused your relationship to be compromised or fail. Therapeutic intervention dissects your relationship and all its flaws such as

  1. basic compatibility
  2. communication styles
  3. disinterest
  4. abuse
  5. lack of trust
  6. betrayal
  7. unmet expectations
  8. unfulfilled obligations
  9. money issues
  10. infidelity

These top 10 reasons that relationships fail are not why relationships fail, nor are any of the other so-called reasons; they are only treated as symptoms, while the underlying toxic disease continues to spread – not only in your relationship – but most relationships in the world.

The real reason why relationships fail is due to the spread of this dangerous disease which spreads like a viral wildfire. This toxin, left to itself will destroy and break down every love relationship we’re involved in, not just out romantic relationships. This viral disease leads to the failure and destruction of all kinds of relationships, including a significant other, family, mom, dad, brother, sister, children, coworkers, bosses and platonic friends.

All our relationships are at risk of being infected by this deadly disease, which is the real root cause of the death of any relationship.

The Truth: Why Relationships Fail

You might be surprised to discover there is only one reason that relationships fail. If you’re fervently seeking to find true love, you will never find it if you are infected with the toxic disease.

Wonder what the toxin is that will thwart any relationship you have and cause it to fall to pieces, no matter how you try to save it?

The name of the disease is

LOVE

Yes, “love;” the definition of it, the concept of it and everything you believe about it, love is the disease.

What if

Everything You Know About Love is Wrong?

You’ve been infected with the toxin which has spread more and more with every interaction you’ve had with other relationships as far back as you can remember (and before).

Your parents, society, the media and Disney have planted and spread the disease so pervasively that you couldn’t recognize true love if you saw it.

Masters, in cooperation with your hosts are bringing this 1 day love, romance and relationship seminar which will change the way you love and look at all your relationships.

Following this event, you can choose whether to practice

TOXIC LOVE

OR

TRUE LOVE

Eliminate the poison that spreads the highly contagious disease of toxic love that promotes possessiveness, jealousy, envy, suspicion, bitterness, dishonesty, controlling, abuse, judging others and yourself.

Instead, you will learn to love unconditionally and have true love in your intimate relationships amidst a society dominated by the disease of love.

You will find the source of the power of true love emanates from within your heart and does not come from outside yourself. Thinking that love comes from anywhere else is the lie that germinates the disease of toxic love’s seeds.

In this 1-day event, you will

  • Learn to forgive and love yourself as you learn about and eradicate the poisonous disease of toxic love.
  • Discover your inner strengths and realize the opinion of others, criticisms or expectations have no effect on or power over you.
  • Eliminate the risk of betrayal as true love’s trust cannot be broken.
  • Get to know you, who you are and who you were in your youth prior to the installation of this toxic, deceitful and manipulative viral software.
  • Get in touch with your inner beauty and purity as you share your true love for another with your newfound peace and serenity from within.

Your true love accepts others just the way they are; without criticism, opinions, or judgment.

Awakening to true love in self-awareness, self-love and self-forgiveness empower you to accept yourself, love your reflection in the mirror, loving in your relationships whether they be with your spouse, friends or relatives but most of all learning to love yourself regardless of what anybody else thinks or says.

 

Learn how to love yourself and by extension everyone and everything else that is out there in our universe.

Your Bright Future

Once you realize you have come on the planet with a purpose, that you are endowed with tremendous capacities, powers, and qualities, you have the unique opportunity to create a bright future, where all your aspirations and dreams come true. Endowed with the power of our minds, we live in a state of infinite possibilities and we have been fully equipped to live our highest potential.

Unlike our physical brain, our mind is one of the most powerful entities in the world bestowed upon us from above. Whether we are conscious of it or not, the power of the human mind can achieve anything and is an incalculable blessing above all other forms of life.

In retrospect, we know that where your life is today is based on the attitudes and choices that you have made in the past. Likewise, the attitudes and choices that you make today determine your future.

When you operate within the laws that govern all that is within this universe, are in harmony and alignment with your purpose, you can begin to realize that you are no longer a pawn in this game of life. Suddenly we no longer consider our life as a problem to be solved but rather as a mystery to be lived and celebrated.

You then can be empowered to take control over all aspects of your life, and how you experience them while enjoying your life’s journey. Once you discover, activate, express and promote your gifts, talents, skills and tend to your highest and best, you can attract the highest and best to you.

This new path can attract whatever you desire into your life. You will begin to see that anything is possible for you both professionally, and personally. Understanding your gifts and talents and how to use them every day allows you to be, do and have whatever you want. If you want a brighter future, think positive thoughts. See the future you desire in your mind’s eye; but don’t stop there. With the power of your imagination, engage all five senses in your visualization. Then prepare to experience your inspired life’s vision, by exploring and taking action at the appropriate times, to make it even better.

By taking a definitive, detailed, explicit approach to focusing on creating your future vision, immutable universal laws begin to attract the ideas, people and circumstances that are in harmony with your desire.

Sometimes, our current situation is the result of seeds that were planted in our past. It is often said, “What is past, is past,” but that is not all that there is to it, especially if we are hindered in any way by our history. It is also said that, “You cannot change the past.” Yet nothing can be further from the truth. We need not be shackled by our past. We can change the past by exercising imaging modalities, so that our past is congruent with our life’s mission and purpose further jettisoning us into our future life of abundance and prosperity.

When you master your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, you will master your life and your past will not predict your future, unless you allow it to.

David M. Masters is constantly uncovering better ways to help you become the very best you can be. He has the tools to get you from here – to where you want to be.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” –Peter Drucker

Your Gift and Financial Success

Financial success may not be easy, but it is simple. Simply follow the principles of financial success and you will be the recipient of financial success. True and lasting success is rooted in taking pride in the value of our contributions to others, rather than taking pride in the value of our possessions.

Each and every one of us is endowed with a unique gift to share with other inhabitants of this planet. By determining your gift, embracing your talent, and deploying your message to others, you experience harmony in fulfilling your purpose. One of the advantages of being a good steward of your gift(s) and talent(s) is prosperity, abundance, and financial success.

Note that your focus should not be on prosperity, abundance, and/or financial rewards, because if your intention is on these results, your outcome will lack the luster of properly motivated intention. If you focus on wealth, you can’t help but notice a lack of it… If your intention is wealth and your attention is on lack; you will receive more lack.

Instead, believe and receive all abundance. Do not question how it will appear, when it will appear, or what it will look like. Have faith that it will appear in the right time, place, and manner. It will either appear when necessary or as a surprise reward for your proper motivation. Focus on the “giving,” based on the abundance you already have, and you will attract more abundance.

As we get better at allowing the good things that God has for us, all blessed things – including financial success – we get better at receiving in His time and proportions. This is a continual process that ranges from what we need – to what we desire. Prepare to receive the desires of your heart.

This is not to say that liars and thieves do not experience a form of prosperity, but this is limited, temporary, and fleeting. In contrast, for those who take the moral high road with integrity, their abundance is unlimited, albeit limited only by their own self-limiting blockages.

David M. Masters has 30 years of experience helping others determine what blockages and/or obstacles that may be keeping them from achieving financial success. He has the unique ability to help them overcome them, or delete them entirely.

Isn’t it about time that you have…

1) a positive attitude about earning and having money
2) an effective strategy for achieving financial success
3) the commitment to fully implement your strategy

“My clients achieve unparalleled financial success because they have strength and honor. They know what it means to commit. They are committed to their success and fulfill their commitments.” says Masters, “They keep their word while managing their time, energy, and financial resources – and let nothing stand in their way.”

Become the person you were born to be. Attain financial success and great wealth in all areas of your life; health, relationships, interactions with others, business, career, attitude, mindset, and financial freedom.
