I have a not card, I read every day I get up. First thing it says on it?
I never complain. I've read it 1000's of times. Why is it so difficult for me though? I don't get it.


The subconscious mind responds better to more positive type affirmations. Instead of telling yourself "I never complain." try something like "I am happy with my life and family.". The more we tell ourselves of something we don't want, such as complaining, the more likely it will happen anyway.

Instead of telling yourself that you are "not" something. Tell yourself something that you "are." Does it seem to make more sense?

There are fun jobs out there that will pay the bills:

www.funjobs.com

I totally agree that we live in a society that "enslaves" a person, and it's up to each individual whether to go along with it or not. The more we work, the more we have, the more we can't have without. Personally, I would rather spend my healtier years doing something I love than working a job I hate for a retirement I might not be able to enjoy. I hope when I'm a senior I'll look back and say, "life was fun", not "now I can finally enjoy life". By then I'd be so used to hating life it would be a hard habit to break.

I honestly feel that the key to being happy is all in your head. It's a matter of persepective on your life. Even with a enslaving job, there are ways to enjoy life.

If you like playing guitar, maybe teach guitar lessons. Then you could work and play guitar everyday, along with helping others gain a talent. (It's probably easier for me to say, as I don't have any children).

Good luck knucklebrain. I'm probably no help, but I do wish the best for you.

Well, I'm done complaining. I'm going to forget even the word. I guess it comes from my childhood and upbringing where nothing less than perfection is any good. "Your going to Harvard" "All my colleagues kids go to Yale" "Why aren't you studying"

I think that's where I get the "nothing is good enough attitude" Not blaming anyone, I'm my own person.

The movie struck a chord with me and I'm glad I watched it. I realize I probably always feel like crap because I'm always telling myself I never get enough sleep. Well as an experiment I tried keeping my motivation 100% positive since the movie and with little sleep I stopped telling myself that I "NEED" 8 hours of sleep. When you are truly motivated by something nothing can get in the way. Sleep, or anything else.

I got about 4 hours the other night and 5 hours last night. I stopped concentrating on the clock and the amount of sleep I need and at work I was fine all day. None of the usual back aches and whatnot. This is something small, but a true revelation for me.

I truly 100% realize that it's not the STUFF in life that makes you happy. I know that, really. I just complain too much instead of appreciating what I have. I don't feel much bad for people in lack. What's the use. If I had endless money, I'd help. But what's the use of driving or walking by and saying "oh, look at that poor family or man" What is that going to do. I stopped feeling bad for folks. If I can help, I will. If someone asks for my help, I never say no. My point is that I know that people create their own life. And if you have a limited thought base, you have a limited life.

I have 1000's of things I want to do in life. I just feel that working 40-50 hours a week leaves me with no time to do the things I want to do. So, I'm going to focus on a huge huge house. I figure if my goal is to have a huge mansion or something, something else will manifest to support that. I just want a moderate living and lots of free time. That's what I want.

You can't put a price tag on free time. I never thought to appreciate where I've got to at this point. I started off making $10/hr fixing pc's to where I'm at now. But, I have put a cap on myself so to speak, thinking that this is the limit. Not so. Time to get my head out of my ***

Thanks for the motivational posts, and I don't disagree with any one of them. When I get advice, I don't shout back in defensive mode. I do listen, it's just applying the knowledge in life that is the difficult part. I like the idea that someone mentioned about a picture of my daughter and wife, or perhaps I'll make a gratitude poster. Smiley

 I'm very happy that you are finding out where your internal dialogue is coming from.  Now the real work begins- you have to catch yourself every time it comes up- analyze it, realize it's not your own, you don't have to 'buy' into it- and when you have done enough of this then it's time to replace it with some 'positive' reprogramming.  I know you can do it!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. What do I want out of life?
1. Move closer to my daughter so that I can feel like she's not growing up without me.

It could be worse, I'm only 1 hour from her.

2. I want to live a long life with my wife.

3. I want time and money to have more hobbies and travel (once I get over fear of flying cheesy )

4. I want to be in a band and make music.

5. I want to be financially independent, with no mortgage, no debt, endless money to help friends and family and I don't want to work, not another day in my life.  

I go to a shrink for PTSD. I don't play the victim with this stuff, but I had a nasty nasty childhood. Parents fighting daily, for 18 years. Blood, ambulances, police, knives. So I think I might have PTSD and although I don't empower the past, I think that some of the memories that come up attribute to my grim outlook on life that I had in the past "All there is is pain"

So rather than go to a shrink, where I sit there and talk, as I've done for many years with many different ones. This woman has a more hands on approach where she's using techniques such as hypnotism, some therapy where she has me hold a memory and watch her hand move left to right with my eyes (forget what it's called)

Anyhow she says my traumatic memories are stuck. Her goal is to have them bottled and put on the shelf like the rest of the normal memories everyone has.

Jeesh, sorry to go off on a tangent as I always do. Point? She asked what I like to do. I had to think for a long long time. I initially thought I don't like to do anything. However I did remember that I always went back to music. I take breaks and whatnot throughout the years, but I love playing music. Of all the hobbies I get into and forget about. Music has remained a constant.

So she suggested I start again, and instead of sitting by myself and pigeonholing my dreams of being in a band that I get off my asss and do it.

I love playing guitar. When I play guitar, 5 hours goes by in 2 minutes. I get angry because work takes away from the time I have with my daughter and the things I love. But anyhow, I love to play music. I want to make an old time band. Old stuff, like the Carter Family and early banjo/fiddle music. I could care less if I make any money at it. I want to create that vibe you get when everyone in the band just "gets it"

It's magical when everyone enters into that magical area when everything is just synchronized and perfect. Time stands still and nothing compares. It's tough to describe. Once at a bluegrass festival, there were some guys on bongos, another guy had wooden bones that he was playing. About 10 people had some sort of percussive instrument. When they all finally got the vibe going, that magical moment happened again. It was another realm of space and time. Nothing compares to it.

I like to put smiles on peoples faces. I like to make people laugh. I like to help people. I once got a Chinese ladies keys out of her car (locked inside)
She was freaking out. After I got the keys out, the smile on her face, went from here to Beijing. That moment was magical.

I'm the type of person that feels real pain when I see others in pain, especially animals. I can not drive by a car accident without stopping. I once saw a Suzuki small SUV thing slide off the highway on ice in NH and flip multiple times down a ravine on the left. I couldn't believe it. I was the only one there. He was upside down when I got there screaming that he was going to die. he luckily had his seat belt on, upside down. I released him carefully and got him outside. It was winter. I got him a blanket and he kept rocking back and forth yelling "I'm going to die" I said, OK, stop. Do you want to die. He looked at me funny and said No. I said OK then stop, your not going to die. Think that over and over I told him.

The state police arrived. Took one look at him with the flashlight and didn't even ask if he was OK. They started searching the vehicle for empty beer cans or drugs or whatever. I'm like WTF, aren't you going to call an ambulance? The cop goes, oh, yeah, you think he needs one? WTF?

I said, you cops are inhuman. The guy slides on ice, flips his car over 20 times and your worried about busting him for a DUI. NICE. Real nice. He walked to his car and called in for an ambulance.  After that, I felt real good that I was able to comfort this guy. If I had just driven by, he would have been alone for about 20 minutes.

These are the things in life I find worthwhile. I love acting like a boob in front of my kid and putting a smile on her face. She's very serious and intuitive for her age. She's a thinker and thinks way too much for her age.

If you want the book version of the secret, just go and buy "ask and it is given" by abraham-hicks. It's the same thing as the movie.

It's funny. You hear about all these people that make small successes in their life, but where are all the millionaires?

It's a fantastic marketing scheme. Put up a website about a "secret" that is thousands of years old that nobody wants you to know about.

Make people drool for it for months and then finally unleash it. $5 is not bad to watch a movie. But the whole process of attraction does not work. If it does, where are all all the people that have manifested great things with it. I've read countless stories from people from the abraham-hicks school of thought that have given up on the process.

Yes, we create our own reality, but it creates only small changes in our lives. If this was a proven process, where are all the testimonials from people that have achieved great things.

Just like Ramtha, just like, Tolle, just like Andrew Cohen, just like Abraham-hicks, where are all the miracles and great things that people have done?

Know what I think? I think all these people are FULL OF POOP. Here's what I think. Screw Ramtha, Screw Tolle, Screw Abraham, Screw the Greys, Screw Hicks, Screw Christianity.

I've decided I don't need any of their BS anymore. I've decided to instill a new belief system in my mind, and I'm no longer looking for others for answers. What I believe, is my answer, and is my belief. I'm glad I've learned this at my age of 35, before wasting any of my money looking for answers from any of these vultures listed above. THEY DON'T HAVE THE ANSWERS.

Neither does Jesus. I have the answer, it's just a matter of breaking down the belief systems that society has warped my brain into believing, and instilling my own belief system, based on my truth and what seems right to me.

I didn't find that strange.. I just have no patience and was hoping to have it the day I ordered it.  

Or...wait.  Did you misunderstand me when I said I've seen the product?  I meant the "movie"  I watched it first and then ordered but I have no doubt the actual DVD will be shipped to me.  I will post the minute I recieve it, which should be in around 3 weeks.

i have just watched it and i think its great grin. I didnt really hear any new ideas as i was reading about LOA for months and listened to abraham-hicks cd's in the last few days. It was still very interesting and all the crucial things were mentioned.

Now i just have to practice it grin

I have been reading on the secret forum after the movie came out and this what Paul Harrington (Co-Founder) said:

This is a tip rather than a promise - the original estimate of 4 - 6 weeks was based on the fact that the duplication plant was delivered masters and artwork at the same time more or less as Vividas for their creation of the online encoding. That's to say, both received the masters just a few days before the launch. The DVD duplication process takes longer to crank up than Vividas so that's why the 4 - 6 week estimate was announced. Having said that, there is no foreseeable reason why anyone ordering today would have to wait 6 weeks. It should be much faster turnaround from here on.

Well, I am positive, I just don't get it. I just don't frign get the process. Also like I said, where are all the people that actually practiced the LOA and got great results? I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, but where are they? I ordered the DVD as well. I liked the movie. I'm not complaining about the money. I just think I've come to the conclusion that searching for things external to my own belief system is not the way.

Nobody is going to change my life, except me. I've read over and over about LOA. I can't stay on track. I lose my way real quick and I don't know what to do. Perhaps it works for some, but where are they? If I used this process and achieved great things, I'd be going nuts telling others about it.

So here's how I understand it. You have a dream or an idea. If your positive and feel good, your in receiving mode, and in line with your goal/dream. If you stay like this, reality will bend in  your favor to support your dream/goal. Did I miss anything? Oh gratitude. Yep. Well one thing is I don't beat myself up over work anymore. My health has become more important than me kicking my own asss beating myself up over my job. What else is there too this? Did I miss anything?

Well, I watched the Secret doc online and I must say I was impressed, I enjoyed it very much and it has made me watch my thoughts and try to be more postive about things.
I don't know about buying the DVD though, the message seemed to be quite simple.
I thought the film was similar to 'What the Bleep...' but a lot better.
Was it produced by Esther & Jerry Hicks, why did they get 'special thanks' at the end?

I believe the doc 'The Secret' is based on the book 'The Master Key System' which you can read online http://www.psitek.net/pages/PsiTekTMKSContents.html or if you just google you should be able to get a free copy to download.

No way that'll work. Like others have suggested, the key is in taking action. The universe isn't going to give you s*** if you just try to stay in "receiving mode". But I guess you've figured that out by now. Want to know how to achieve something? It's simple really, although usually far from easy. Every opportunity that you get; every opportunity that you can think of, do something- take action towards achieving your goal, whatever your goal may be. Do not worry about how big that action is. Acknowledge and value every teeny-tiny baby step that you make. They add-up. But the key is to remain consistent- consistent and persistent.
I do think there is truth in the idea that we create our own reality, but not in the way that is so often propagated in "new-age" circles. The system that we are governed by requires action. Perhaps when you achieve Buddhahood you can instantly manifest whatever you want, but until then, you're stuck with the rules that we all have to live under.
