The One-Minute Guide To Health and Happiness
Do you want to be healthy and happy? Prove it!
I thought I was under a lot of job stress, and I felt it daily.
I thought I was somewhat healthy, and I became that way â€“ only
I thought I was failing financially, and I did.
In the past couple of months, my view of the world, my place in it,
and my self-esteem have been turned in a new positive direction.
Since I made this change, the following things have happened for me:
* I have found my dream job
* I no longer have chronic stress headaches
* I have more energy and sleep better at night
* I have started my own part-time business and am supplementing my
* I have a better relationship with my wife
* I have time to play with my two toddlers and am a more loving,
* I am on track to be free of all credit card debt within the next
And the best part is, ANYONE who wants success and prosperity in
their lives can do what I have done. You donâ€™t have to have a
degree, be able to write well, or become a salesman to have enough
money to have the comforts you deserve or have optimum health.
It all begins with a simple concept: how you think about your own
self-image and what you were put on this Earth to accomplish.
It amazes me how many people wander blindly through life without a
mission. Why are you here? What excites you? When are you the most
happy? Are you in a mindless job where you put in your hours and get
out of there as quickly as possible to go do what you really like?
What will it take for you to be able to do what you want when you
Do you truly believe that you deserve success and health in your
life? Many of us have been buried by negativity. We try and try and
fail and fail. We have been beaten down by life so many times that we
begin to believe that we are just meant to be a failure.
My father taught me to â€œplay the hand I was dealt.â€ Change
I could, but donâ€™t waste your energy on things that are outside
control. I now understand that by guarding my thoughts carefully and
allowing only positive messages to get in, I can literally ATTRACT
success, health, and prosperity to myself.
The famous quote â€œIt is done unto me as I think.â€ is 100%
* If you believe you will be successful, you will attract success to
* If you believe you will have money coming into your life, it will
* If you believe that you will lose weight and have the kind of
physique youâ€™ve always wanted, it will happen
Notice the key word that belongs to all of these bullets, the word
If you DESIRE something and repeatedly tell yourself hundreds of
times a day that you HAVE that thing, you will attract it to you as
sunlight attracts flowers and leaves.
Dr. Robert Anthony, an expert on the concept of the power of positive
thinking, states in his book â€œAdvanced Formula For Total
that all human beings are spiritually whole and perfect. It is our
perceptions of the world around us and our perception of ourselves
that causes us to behave in ways that are not perfect. When a person
chooses to create positive energy with their thoughts, they attract
other positive vibrations from the universe.
I have seen this power we all possess in action.
* A friend of mine visualized winning a BMW in a contest for 60 days
before the contest occurred, and he WON!
* Another friend left behind her life of drinking, smoking, and self-
abuse to become a successful business owner, attracting wealth and
powerful business-minded people to herself like a magnet!
* Another friend lost over 50 pounds and put on 20 pounds of muscle
in 12 weeks with a regimen of exercise, dietary supplements, and
* I myself have applied these techniques to claim my dream job, a
high school band directing position in a fantastic school district
that has a teaching philosophy that matches my own.
This stuff works, folks!
If you are tired of being stressed out, pushed aside, worked to
death, and living from paycheck to paycheck, there is a way out. You
must start by accepting yourself as you are and finding your true
calling in life. There is no doubt in my mind that I am here to
change the lives of many people through my band directing and through
articles like this one.
You CAN have the kind of life youâ€™ve always dreamed about. You
get your body into the peak of physical efficiency without spending
thousands of dollars on diets and personal trainers. You CAN accept
the prosperity and peace that is out there in our society today. It
all starts within your own mind.
So I say to you again: do you want to be happy? PROVE IT!
