Outstanding little blogpost here from a guy named “Simple Tom”. Basically, what he is saying, is “Change is hard. If you want to change, first you have to change your intention.” That seems like a “duh” until you break it down. For example, many people just say “I want to lose 30lbs.” Or, “I want to save $15,000 this year.”. But, they have trouble articulating what that actually means to them. To change your intention, your actions have to be informed with two things:

1) What dies success look like? Steven Covey, (RIP) always said, “begin with the end in mind.” Another great phrase is “Visualize success.” If the goal is to simply have 30 lbs less mass on your bones, or $15000 more in your bank account by the end of the year, then you likely won’t get there. Versus if your goal is “because that will make me live longer” or “that will help me avoid a heart attack” or “that will make a big jump in my retirement planning”, you will do better.

2). Ask yourself, “Why do I want to do this?” That is different than the goal. This is the key to unlocking your intention. Doing something without an articulation of “why is this important?” ensures failure. Doing something with an understanding and clearly formed view of Why will drive your success.

Take five minutes and read Tom’s post and watch the videos. It is outstanding,

Change Your Reality by a Thought

I just finished reading a book called happy pocket.

It was one of the most mind bending books on success and the world around us that I’ve ever read. It opened my mind up to sooo many ideas, but the main thing was we literally have complete control over every aspect of our lives.

It broke down the science of success and happiness to quantum physics… haha probably sounds a little crazy already 😉 The basic principle that It talks about though is that we are the cause of our circumstances, not the result.

What Is Energy?

To tell you how that works, I gotta break it down first.. When you look at a cell under a microscope its made up of molecules, those molecules are made up of atoms, which are made up of sub-atomic particles which aren’t made up of energy, they are energy.
