Carrying on our story

Carrying on our story.

Personal stories come from someone’s past. They don’t necessarily have to be true, they can be fiction. Books are full of stories.

Actually, I believe that every story from our past, becomes more and more a fiction story if we insist to make it our own identity. I know for a fact that the only truth resides in the story line we’re “typing” right now.
We can read or write stories about anything is moving around us. We can describe the life of an insect from our point of view. We can tell the story of one day in our lives, 20 years ago when something remarkable happened, for instance.
We can tell our story about how we achieved and overcame adversities and help other people do the same.
We can describe our story to make the point about WHY we’re behaving in a certain way, whatever our behavior is.
We can also describe reasons why our life cannot improve in the future. Generally these reasons are based on the story we are telling ourselves over and over, about that day of 20 years ago when something remarkable happened… for instance.
If we only could erase the stories about our past that don’t let us see ourselves expressing freely.
Stories cannot be erased. If someone can erase memories and the script we play over and over in the stage of our lives, please let me know how.
What I know is that, our stories can be replaced with new ones, just changing our focus towards a different story.
I was thinking today… since we’re conditioned by our past stories, then what if we just replace those past stories into new ones, our future stories. The story of the continuation of our life.
Replacing stories? Actually we do it all the time. We usually replace our past stories with our future stories. The thing is, most of us re-write the same story with some small changes. The majority of us lived similar cycles of circumstances and this is not something that I am just making up. That’s proven science. 
I’m writing this article for my blog, and this article could describe my life story from when I was born to this moment. This could be a story and it’ll be just from my own life prospective. I could state everything that happened and explain the reasons why I am where I am and I am who I am.
That story could be very amusing but now, having already written my story until this moment, can I start writing something that belongs to my future and still be my story?
I believe that my memories are the truth of what I lived, but… wait a minute. Is that “truth” twisting the course of my life towards where I want to be?
I am a writer, and everybody is a writer. We have the right to write and to re-edit what we wrote. We own the copyright of the story of our future and we can “make it happen” in the story of our lives, the life that starts right now.
As I said, we all make choices based on distortions, watching our lives through our past stories. Well, now we can take control of our writing and see our lives through the positive “distortions” of our future stories.
I can decree what is true, in my future. I can receive a message from myself, the Marcello that already has fulfilled his desires and achieved his goals. That Marcello is telling me: “I’m here waiting for you.”
Please feel free to replace “Marcello” with your name and my story with yours. That person is you, influenced by the story of your life. The story that only you can choose to be influenced by.

“You are always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.” ~ Richard Bach

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily

How many times did your child try?

How many times did your child try?

I was listening to Tony Robbins time ago and he gave this example about “when to quit” that literally left me thinking.
 
As a parent, how many times did you let your child try to learn how to walk until you said: “Ok, now you tried too many times… it’s obvious that walking is not for you”?

 

How many times did your child try?
How many times did your child try?
Even if you don’t have kids, you’ve figured where all this goes.
Now many times have you tried?
In any area where you dream to be fulfilled, how many times you need to try in order to succeed?
 
How many different approaches, now many different plans need to be implemented?
 
I read something days ago: “A winner is a loser that tried one more time…”
 
Now, tell yourself about the time when you were determined to finish something. What kept you going? What made you continue even though it was tough? I bet the reason why you kept going was because you just believed you could make it!
 
Let’s talk about the baby again. What if the baby had the “ability” to think negative and imagine that he/she couldn’t make it? If that was the case in real life, I think 90% of humans wouldn’t walk.
 
Thanks God that the baby is “unconscious” and keeps trying, and I guess the baby doesn’t even question about “if” he’ll make it or not.
Returning to us… unless a person had injuries or born with a decease that prevent he or she to walk, a normal person makes it.
 
Even if a person cannot walk, he or she succeeded in other abilities. We learned incredible things at the age when we weren’t able to discern if it was possible or not.
In those who “made it”, there was a lot of irrationality and a lot of “going to the opposite direction” respect of everybody else.
 
They didn’t pay attention on what other people negatively thought about them. They continued with their plans and they made it.
 
There’s a lot of stubbornness and determination in someone who strongly believes he or she could make it. Amazing characteristics of human beings.
 
All humans are able to experience this. All of them. We can see it in all forms of life. Animals and plants also. Just think about how persistent life is! 
 
It doesn’t matter how others judge you or where all the masses go. The most important thing is how YOU judge yourself.
  
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer once said: “What others think about me is none of my business.”
  
I would instead focus on: “What I think about myself is what really matters.”
  
That’s my business and here I’m not trying to be self-centered, egocentric or anything like that. What I mean is that the way we talk to ourselves, our self-talk is very powerful.
  
In the little child that wants to walk, there’s a keen desire, uncontaminated strong determination to stand up and do the first step.
 
There’s no way back to that kind of determination.
 
Are you trying to learn how to “walk” by yourself in a new business? Do you have this goal because you know you’ll get financial freedom, and all its benefits?

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily

We float on emotions between two worlds

We float on emotions between two worlds

A Boat floats between two worlds.
The world we see, very volatile, and the world underneath.
The surface moves as emotions inside a leaving being.
Its “shell” has to disintegrate, it has to fracture and then,
What remains sinks in that depth.
Men, as boats, float,
Seeing what they see,
Suffering the movement of their environment.
Underneath, just peace.
Could that planking be less rigid before it breaks because its old age?
Let it sink…

This poem starts the first page of “The Dual Facet of Abbott Baxx”, a book that I published in 2012. [Marcello’s Published Books]
I usually paint boats showing what’s underneath, below the water line. For me, boats, represent the reality of human kind.

Image Source from Marcello’s Gallery

We’re floating on the surface of two different worlds; the world we see and the world underneath. The material world, the world we see, and the spiritual world, which we cannot see, but we can sense.
The water line that separates the two environments is never completely leveled. Weather affects this surface that moves constantly, and it moves everything that floats on it.
These two different environments have two different densities, and because of this difference of density, there’s a neat separation between them.

We move with emotions that is compared to the surface where boats float. We’re moved by emotions actually.
My poem talks about this “shell” that keeps boats above the surface. The boat’s structure and “skin” that prevents water filtrate.
It is not a good thing if, in real life, that planking brakes and the boat sinks… but in our spiritual meaning, we can feel connection with all the depth underneath that it’s always in peace. Our “keel” senses the infinite depth if we are present. If we live in the surface, influenced by circumstances, we live in fear.
That rigidity might soften and we can start sinking voluntarily and abide the depths as we wish.
That rigidity might be compared to our ego. The compulsive opposition to whatever moves in the surface.

How helpful life becomes when we decide to “sink” in the depths of the unseen world, inside our inner life, in complete absence of resistance.

I believe that, at the end, we realize that we were not what we believed we were.
Could we let that ego die before we’re forced to it? Can we stop defending it?

Could we abandon all resistance and feel our connection with the unseen world which is vaster than the surface?
Like Eckhart Tolle remarks: ”Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily

The Meaning of Desire, according to Marcello Cicchini

The Meaning of Desire, according to Marcello Cicchini

 
Desire is an amazing force. Desire by itself is considered by many (including me) as something to get rid of (indirectly) as soon as possible, if not sooner…
 The Meaning of Desire, according to Marcello Cicchini

The Meaning of Desire, according to Marcello Cicchini
What I mean by “getting rid of (indirectly) as soon as possible” is that we focus most of the time on the subject to pursue. The desire force is there, but we focus on the fact that we’re incomplete without the thing we want.
So, the desire ends when we get what we desire. Many of us do it unconsciously…
In other words, feeling desire implies that you’re not getting yet what you want and in those terms we want if to end.
The only difference between each people is in the intensity of the pain that this inflicts.
Focusing on the missing thing in our lives, especially when we compare ourselves with other people that already have what we want, can be very painful. Mostly if we that we’re not worthy enough.
This is obviously an compulsive belief. Nobody is less than others and everybody can define what they are, freely. Each and every one can describe themselves and walk their lives in that direction.
Now, hold in mind whatever desire you can feel right now. I am sure that everybody feels a desires all the time.
Choose one of them and feel its tension. Feel its energy. See the object of your desire within the desire itself. Notice how beautiful the things you desire, inside the emotion of desire, are.
I imagine a desire like it was a rubber band you hold in your hands. Imagine if you hold one end and stretch the other end. One end is “you” and the other end is what you want. The harder you pull this rubber band, the farther you separate these two ends, the more pulling energy is stored in this rubber band.
What if instead of a rubber band, you have an instrument string. It needs that tension all the time. A piano or a guitar string or a violin string…
We all are in this life existence because of this.
We are not here to complete tasks and then die. We all are here to ride waves that are formed because of the opposition of two forces; the wave you’re riding and the wave before it that is coming back from the shore.
There’s a contrast of forces below that shapes each wave the way we know them.
An airplane takes off despite the force of gravity, because, when it reaches a certain speed on the runway, a difference of pressure between the top and bottom of the wings, increases. The airflow is cut in half as the wings attack it. When that difference exceeds the weight of the aircraft, it starts detaching from the ground.
Negative pressure is generated on the top of the wings, and that keeps the aircraft in the air. You can imagine a vacuum effect on top of the wings, pulling the whole aircraft up. 
Think about this… when the aircraft levels to a constant altitude, at that point that negative pressure on top of the wings equals the whole weight of the aircraft.
Desire IS the difference of pressure that keeps us on flight.
I believe that contemplation is a different way to explain gratitude.
Contemplating desire, letting it be, witnessing it, being quiet in its presence can explain the feeling of gratitude.

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily

Working knowledge and focused knowledge

Working knowledge and focused knowledge

 Knowing what you’re pursuing is the most important knowledge a person can acquire.
Knowing HOW to get there is a secondary thing.
Working knowledge and focused knowledge
Working knowledge and focused knowledge
School is great, but only knowledge of the nature of things doesn’t get you anywhere if you don’t know where you want to go first.
It looks like a very obvious thing but how often we find in ourselves, confusing “knowing” in general, with knowing our destination.
The importance of knowing what we want is the foundation of any action and strategies you might take. It is far more important than the tools and education you need to get there easier.
Let’s ask to any “successful” person if any or their achievements were reached just randomly… Surely they will tell us that they know what they wanted, how they wanted, how they would want to feel and why they wanted it.
Let’s ask now to ourselves if our successes were achieved just by coincidence. I bet you’ll remember some of your small or big achievements, no matter what area, that every time you got something significant, was because it was dreamed, planed, designed, nurtured, wished, imagined and seen before it manifested.
Let’s make a difference between the school education (which is necessary) with the knowledge of the direction and the goal you want to achieve. So do you want just knowledge in general or focused knowledge? Probably you want both but knowing your destination is the starting point. Working knowledge and focused knowledge are combined. 
Knowing exactly what your dream is about, knowing your destination, seeing yourself right there, is the foundation of your journey towards that goal.
Focusing on goals makes us selective in what instruments and knowledge we need to get there. Focusing on goals makes us find instructions, makes us find who can help us make this happen.
It is all about focusing.
A salesman that wants just make sales and focuses on making sales, is less effective than the salesman that focuses on having more customers and serving them with constant solutions for their needs.
It is all about focusing what’s important.
If someone wants to replace their day job income with a business that is online based, then things are similar to the salesman we were talking about before.
The list building (email marketing) is the goal. Online marketers (successful ones) don’t want to sell in the first place. They want to build a list of people that are interested in what they have to offer. They’re focused on serving their followers with quality content and value for people’s lives.
They want to help people reach their goals, helping them in a spiritual supportive level as well as in technical stuff.
They create content, they blog, create videos, give free instructions, free tips, free how-tos.
Their followers are happy to interact with them and look for more because they enjoy the content the online marketer is delivering to them.
At a certain point, the online marketer asks for his follower to take action, and explore one of the products he has to offer.
As a result, this marketer ten-folds in revenue his work/time investment.

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily

Could “Sadness” give you what you want?

Could “Sadness” give you what you want?

One of the paragraphs of my “The Dual Facet of Abbott Baxx” states:
“Most people don’t know that they have a bug inside their heads that continuously repeats: “Sadness gives you what you want… so, keep showing your victim face…”
Probably because when we were kids, we used to obtain things by showing sadness to our parents and other people. We were successful most of the time and so, that’s how we learned it.”

Could “Sadness” give you what you want?
Could “Sadness” give you what you want? Image: Pexel.com https://www.instagram.com/thedigitalstylecloud/

Most of us used to obtain things from our parents or other loved ones by changing our expression to a pity face when we asked for something.
We still do.
Now, as grown-ups, we need to make some changes inside and modify some “programs.”
That “automation” doesn’t give us the results we want, even though it might work here and there. The result, if it works, is not lasting or sanctifying.
There’s a better way for us to obtain things that give us real benefit. The new way is to create joy inside, by just the idea of having or being it.
Just imagine how amazing the feeling of a new desire is! All crashes when, after the desire, a feeling like: “but I don’t have it!” comes and we focus just on that feeling.
Let’s focus on the desire, and the object of our desire as a goal.
We used to focus on the fact that we’re always missing something. Now we want to focus on our goals, which already contain the object of our desire.
Living in that goal, living inside our dream, we start feeling the joy as if that was already our reality.
Someone once said something that sounds like: Happiness doesn’t follow things, instead, things follow happiness.
In other words, stop expecting to receive or achieve something in order to be happy. Create happiness inside yourself and then you’ll see the fruits.

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily

A winner is just a loser who tried one more time

“A winner is just a loser who tried one more time.” ~ George M. Moore, Jr. ~

 

For those who believe in themselves there’s happiness in their present moment.

What a beautiful sensation! Believing in your ability to figure things out. It is always that way.

Think about the title of this article. “A winner is just a loser who tried one more time.”

How many times did I feel like a loser? Countless. I beat myself down so many times.

I believe now that persistence in pursuing your dreams is essential though. It is very easy to quit after every time we try something and doesn’t work.

Winners, successful people, entrepreneurs don’t quit and not because they are super humans, but because they care about certain details that many people don’t care about.

No one is born perfect but some people were born in an environment where good discipline and organized focused people lived. They were surrounded by good examples of successful models.

Now… if you believe that you are not in that category, this doesn’t mean you need to forget about being successful.

First of all, being successful has different meaning for different people. Here I mean about success in achieving goals.

Goals are dreams that, sometimes, sound too good to be true. These are the kind of goals that are beyond the normality for common people.

A winner is just a loser that tried one more time
A winner is just a loser that tried one more time

We can also set goals that are small steps of the bigger achievement.

Initially my goal was to follow certain routines and guidelines, like for example, one hour for writing (I am writing in that hour now.) After this, publishing in my Instagram accounts three different images. Then, the next hour, publishing and distributing my article inside my websites and social media accounts. Then I move on to a different task, and so on.

Obviously, small achievements are still my daily goals and I believe that big accomplishments are made by small daily successes.

This is just an example of how you can also start being your own “boss” and giving to yourself a schedule to follow daily. It is like you show up at work and “you” assigns to you a list of tasks to complete in a certain amount of time.

Being your own boss is a big responsibility. If you work for someone else and you would like to fire that boss and become self-employed in the future, you need to make sure that your next “boss” knows what needs to be done and is disciplined. Make sure to check every day if your “boss” doesn’t become complacent, but instead, reminds you what to do and why we need to reach new achievements. Make sure that your “boss” is educated, invests on his education and makes you invest also your time with no limits.

By doing this, you create momentum, you start loving what you do.

This is how you don’t count how many times you failed because you are focused on the end result. You have a continuous reminder that tells you where to go and WHY you (and your boss) need to get there.

That doesn’t mean you blindly continue doing wrong things if it’s the case.

You change strategy if something needs to be changed along the way, but you know that there’s no way in the world that you will comply with the rules of someone else’s dream. YOU WANT to be part of YOUR DREAM.

Mr Moore was probably thinking about this when he wrote this phrase. It doesn’t matter if others consider you a loser. The most important thing is that you know the reality of every achiever; the winner knows that all his past failures where part of the process of winning.

The day I realized I wasn't free... YouTellYouDaily




That self-protected image of myself

That self-protected image of myself

There’s a meaning in my life now. I haven’t experienced this before. Just because, maybe, my brain was the same. Mental patterns grooved by the trend of old habits.

You know, there are many things that can contribute for us to fail.

think for youself
Think for Yourself

Before I go to the point, I’m going to ask you: How many times you have started with new ideas that lasted a few weeks and then ended, a few days… and then ended, a few hours… and, then again, ended and you lost your enthusiasm?

How many times you said to yourself: “I am not capable” or “I am not like those people, they have degrees and became professionals… They were born in a rich family!”

Now. The real question to myself is: “Do I have to resign trying and am I forced to quit? or, do I quit and resign just because I don’t believe in myself?

I’ve been there my friend. Oh yeah. Until I pushed myself to the limits. Until I questioned: “What if I don’t believe in myself and, at the end, I regret about the things that I didn’t try?

That’s going to be the reality. At the end of my life, I surely won’t regret about the things I did and went wrong. I will surely regret about the things I didn’t try because of my fear of failure.

It is more comfortable to stay where you are. Because any change requires for you to apply a force that is supposed to change the course of your life.

Trying to change the course of things needs some kind of pressure. To change the image of yourself. The image that is stored inside the very core of your brain cells. Very much protected image, for long years.

I am not just talking about “you”, I’m talking about all of us, in general.

You need to break habits. You need to do things you never did before. You need to organize your mornings, your afternoons, your evenings.You need to set alarms and follow routines.

I wrote a book in 2012 called “The Dual Facet of Abbott Baxx” which is a paranormal mystery. In a section of it you find that one of the characters, Marino, explains to Abbott his ideas about entrepreneurs:

[But Marino, seating next to me, opens his mouth to say his opinion:

“That can’t be changed because it is part of the economic laws that rule the route that the world is now taking. We all require food, shelter, clothes, health structures, insurance, entertainment and other necessary things. The society is organized to make sure all those things flow smoothly in order for people to have the essentials they need to live… and big capitals have the power to mass deliver what people demand.”

“Marino, those guys have a point… There is a huge difference between people. A few have everything and the majority struggle all their life!”

But he can’t help unfolding his philosophy: “Abbott: those who are complaining now on TV are the ones demanding all those goods in their daily lives. Someone who owns a flock knows perfectly that sheep need food, shelter, and everything necessary in order to keep being assets for the owner’s wealth. Then, sheep are a source of meat, milk and wool. The flock renews continuously, the sheep are not the same sheep of ten years ago. They are different sheep but it is the same flock. The owner might have died years ago, but his son continues taking care of the flock… the system continues going on. The capital that feeds the flock is the same capital and the flock that feeds the capital is the same flock.

The owner of the flock decides what sheep is going to be turned into meat and which one is going to continue being a milk and wool source, with the finality to increase his capital. It is that simple!”

“Are you pro capitalism?” I asked.

“Yes and no. What I know is that society, as we know it, has its own rules. To manage a flock requires strategies and self-improvement. It requires following routines, standards of management and self-control. Being a sheep doesn’t require all those skills. Being a sheep is easier… Given these facts, let me tell you something: don’t complain if you were made into meat when they don’t need you anymore. It is part of the game… like that guy on the TV said! It is part of the game. Otherwise go live in the woods, hunt your own food and live by your own rules.

Besides, we all know that capitalist own probably 95% of all goods, but we all want what they sell, and they get all the money we give to them.”] (It continues in the book)

Yes…: Dreaming, setting goals, focusing, continuous self-improvement, following routines, management, self-control, persistence, stubbornness.

Continuing being what we are doesn’t require successful skills. We’re used to live the way we live because we decide to settle and comply with our surroundings.

Successful entrepreneurs stretch themselves, setting higher goals and things that are greater than what they ever thought they would achieve.

Do you want to know how I changed my life?

#1 I asked myself WHY I do what I do: “Because nothing can be compared of being free to travel and spend time with my family abroad, without having to come back to my ‘base’ and feel stuck.”

I choose this WHY because this WHY includes the feelings of a father that doesn’t see his older kids that live in Italy for 2-3 years at a time, or his mother and brothers that live in Argentina for other 2-3 years at a time because he has no more than two weeks’ vacation every year. I need to do something about this, and this is what I’m doing.

#2 I stopped complaining about situations/people. Instead, I started blessing all situations and people. All is good for those who focus on helping themselves. 

#3 I started reading/watching inspirational and spiritual new concepts. That’s the only thing I consume.

#4 I nurture the idea of living a lifestyle with no job that “allows” just two weeks’ vacation a year. Being grateful at the same time about what I have and experience.

#5 I asked myself: “How can I contribute to other’s lives in a positive way?”

#6 I set a daily routine of taking care of business, writing posts, engaging in socially, providing value in a consistent way. All written down and precisely followed.

#7 I make sure that I feel the purpose of my life. I remind myself WHY I do what I do.

Exchanging Your Time For Money

Exchanging Your Time For Money 

The following is part of a chapter of my book “The Dual Facet Of Abbott Baxx” where he, the main character, speaks to his children before he passes to a better life. See: Marcello’s Published Books if you will.

It goes… (Part 1)

“To Every Child

 Sons… please don’t promise a reward to your kids for what they accomplish in their lives, for themselves. The reward is already included in what they are going to become, after they do what you told them to do. Actually… it is better to ask them what they want, stimulating their own ability to dream and make plans for themselves.

Don’t promise any gratification to them to make them obey you; otherwise they will obey for mere interest in the reward. They won’t need to obey you when they understand that everything you say is for their wealth. They will understand, sooner or later, that everything they do is for them and will be a product of what they are. The act of obedience is finalized on the fact that it strengthens their good habits.

Actually, your presence in their lives and the proximity of your affection will make them feel secure, growing with confidence.

Be careful though… sometimes we, parents, counsel our kids based on our fears. We transmit our fears to them, our limited beliefs. We might as well tell their limits and that’s a lie. They might believe you and, with this, you might prevent them for freely dream and build a great future.

They can do it. They will make it. They are able to have it done.

We might also limit their imagination and courage to dream big. Just trust in them and let them run free.

The only thing you need to ask is this: “Love and do what you will” and “Never engage in business that does not benefit all whom it affects.”

Practice makes perfection. The task for you and for them is to recognize and take care of what you practice. It is wise to practice productive things. And productive things only can be accomplished if there is a clear goal.

Don’t promise a reward for what they do and for what they should become perfect upon. The perfection is the reward… and don’t try to escape from your responsibility to find perfection, hiding behind the phrase that everybody says: Nobody is perfect.

They will always work for the pleasure of having something that passes away if you promise a reward for their efforts. The pleasure will abide in the act of doing and not for its fruit. The fruit comes by itself.

Teach them to always give with love, for the happiness they may feel when they see how they can help their parents, brothers, sisters, friends and also strangers. There are no strangers when you feel free to self-expression.

Be ready to give more value than what you want to receive in exchange. This applies in all matters. In life and in business.

The stranger appears along with the illusion of separation from anything else. Doubt and fear are the only enemies. Tell them this truth please.

If you do this, they will love you. Otherwise they will think they love you only when they receive something from you.

If you promise a reward, then the day you’ll ask something for nothing in exchange, will be the day you’ll notice some unbalance there. Some conditions will be asked perhaps.

Families where parents promised rewards to their kids have big fights when adversities come. There is no more interest in being together because there is nothing to take anymore. This is what happens when we focus only on doing based on reward.

It is wise not to work for money. I mean, exchanging your hours for a pay as a system of living. Working for money is not smart. Some people say that money is evil but they are wrong. The evil thing is to say that the money I earn is my own.”

How to create positive emotions

 How to create positive emotions

What is desire and what desire can do for you?

The end result is what you’re working for, but sometimes we get discouraged because a feeling of frustration falls down on us.

What is really happening is that our attention is attracted to one specific point. A negative aspect, or maybe, what we fear is pulling our attention like a magnet.
We are usually following this pattern because we’re used to look for certain negative details. We’re looking for the reasons why things don’t work for us, or why we shouldn’t risk moving from a “safe” situation instead of following our dreams.
Use your desire as a motivation and smile, jump, talk, walk as if you were a professional actor/actress playing the script of someone that already succeeded. This is known as changing your physiology.
Do a facial expressions of someone that feels fortunate, grateful, relaxed, happy when you feel depress, unfortunate, unhappy. Your physical behavior will make you focus on happy moments, to expect happy surprises, to be grateful.
Start jumping, laughing and talking like someone who won the lottery and try to feel depressed at the same time… Not possible.
This is because if you don’t experience emotions that make you act happy, then act happy and this behavior will stimulate happy emotions. Try it.
See… happiness is not coming after achieving goals. Happiness arises while focusing on the goal you want to achieve. Happiness comes before the actual materialization of reality.
I know, I’ve just wrote: “Materialization OF reality
When you have a dream and you follow a plan, a routine for its achievement, this puts you in the mood of whoever is already in possession of the subject of his dreams. In other words, it is like the “reality” already exists in the “unseen” world. It is like a parallel world from where things emerge in our lives.
What about focusing on the desire itself?
We experienced so many times how impossible it is not to turn our attention on that fact that we’re too far from attaining our desires. In other words, as soon as a desire raises, almost instantaneously a big “NO” appears in front of it. Automatically frustration, disappointment predominates.
Let’s do it as a habit, even if we fail several times in the beginning, on focusing in the desire itself.
Desiring is an amazing ability and allows us to have a glance of what it looks like being there.
What if we abide in that desire as long as we can? That way we can break the habit where desire is followed by disappointment.
I had an amazing experience when I was younger. You know when you hear a song and then that song keeps playing in your head and you can’t get rid of it? They call it earworms.
I found a way to stop it completely, and the way I do it is just slowing down the rhythm of that song until it stops playing. If you ask  me how I discovered it I don’t know what to answer.
Our “song”, our mental patters go over and over for many years. Some of those mental patters are running since we were kids.
So, What if we just start slowing down the motion of our desires? What if we slow down in a way that the frame we end up freezing is a frame inside the film of the desired result?
It might not be easy in the beginning  but I’m pretty sure we’re getting closer to the end of a very limiting mental pattern.
