Some people don’t’ like the word, “if”. They think what "if" type of questions are ridiculous. These people who disagree with the the “what if” conversations, will never get the best piece of cake at the birthday party. Deep down they have always wanted the corner piece, one of the only four chances to enjoy two sides of frosting. They wish for it, but they do not get into the “what if” frame of mind.
People with a “what if” personality reep the pleasures of fascinating about possibilities. When you understand the concept of , “what if” in it’s positive form, you have the advantage of experiencing what the actual idea really feels like, even before it happens, and this makes the possibility of it happening that much more possible.
Play along for a moment, What if I told you, WAIT better yet, imagine in this moment that I am offering you a chance to win one million dollars all cash today. In order to win the million dollars, I will lay thousands of cards face down over the floor. You get a chance to draw that winning card, and if you don’t choose the winning card, we will give you another chance and we will keep giving you these chances until you win.
The only catch is that you only get one chance per hour.
Keep in mind, you are reassured that the the million dollar card is in this pile just as sure as the sun and moon hang in the sky and do not fall out of the sky and have been floating in open space for millions of year. I can not tell you where the card is located. You can come to me for guidance but the choice is always yours. In this example the the Million dollar card is equivalent to pure happiness, overall wellbeing, a joyful spirit and a healthy body. In this example, where we are giving you unlimited chances to win the big prize, you only get 24 chances a day.
Okay now open your eyes and look at me. You have been given that same opportunity, but let’s look at how we play the game. If we sleep 8 hours a day, as we should we are down to 16 chances to win that million dollar lifestyle. In this life example the choosing of the cards simply means how we live our lives. The choices that we make. This is hard for us, because we are human. We waste so many chances a day to have a million dollar life style. The health, wellbeing, financial freedom, enthusiasm and spiritual enlightenment. We may be experiencing some of it but not all . Having all of our physical and spiritual needs met is a million dollar lifestyle.
The most important strategy in looking for the million dollar lifestyle, is not flipping over the same cards, over and over again, yet this is what we do in life every day.
Let’s look at this. Wake up 7am (for example)
· Use the restroom
· Jump into the shower.
· Sit down and eat breakfast
· Watch the morning news.
The necessary daily routines are fine, but when we allow ourselves to feel, in this action we are simply allowing our spirit the joy of living a million dollar lifestyle. What if instead of simply doing the basics of life, we allow the spirt to feel what that feels like, by just spending a moment in that zone. As we wash your face, brush your teeth, you don’t need to think about what’s wrong. While enjoying a healthy breakfast why not skip bringing the spirit down with harmful news designed to keep us hooked just enough with their “teasers’, and instead focus on how the food is nourishing our bodies, while giving praise not just at the beginning of the meal, but with each bite truly enjoying the blessing of life, that we are experiencing in that moment. Doesn’t this sound much better than focusing on the crap happening around us?
This is what we call playing our cards right, The only way to win is to stay in the game, because you are given chance after chance because the possibilities are endless.
Let’s say that a friend calls, and wants to talk about how her husband did her wroing, or about a mutual friend she can’t stand. Here is our chance to play your card of the hour. Get off the phone with that person infecting you with their negative energy. A better use of your card for that hour is to find something to do. Plant a flower, read a book, write something, sing. Do what ever feels good to you. Maybe even when your mind wonders in these moments you feel that million dollar life style.
Let’s look at how a phone call can mess up your chances to win big. Lisa calls Trish….”Guirl whatcha doin”?” “ OMG why did I just leave from over James house and that bitch Carmen was pullin in the drive way, I can’t stand her”
Even just listening to this example, puts us in an uncomfortable state of mind, however this is what we have been taught. Thall shall not gossip, is not to protect the one you are gossiping about, it’s to protect you from feeling that empty feeling from doing it. Dishing the scoop may seem like fun, but once it’s been done the fun never last for long.
Here is the thing, most times when we gossip, it’s not going to get back to the person we were talking mess about. Knowing this we think everything is fine with it and no one is going to get hurt. Not only does creating nasty energy affect you, it also hurts your chances of winning that million dollar lifes style, because gossiping jacks up your emotional receiver.
We have friends who are dealing with their crap, and we let them dump that crap on us because we want to be a “good friend” WRONG. Then after they dump all there crap we tell them to give it to God. We are so nosey and hungry for pain that we will sit through someone elses reinacted pain.
Now lets’ go a little bit deeper, so that we really understand the Million Dollar Life Style.
Your friend who is experiencing issues beyond her control because when she had the chance to **get off the phone with a negative friend, **and spent her time complaining and **envying others, **constantly worried and afraid, **anxious and impatient, in this example "she" is setting the stage for the scene in her life, and although we have no idea of what that scene looks like, we do know for a fact that the neither does our example, but she can bet what ever it is she won’t have any control over it.
This is what we do. WE waste all of our chances, every day. Now “if” it was a real game of million dollar lifestyle, we would not stop choosing our cards by the hour for as long as it takes, but when it’s our life we wsate so many chances, eliminating our chances of winning sooner rather than later.
