I went about my day without thinking much about it except the daily prayer which I now could nearly memorised them in my heart. Again and again, I listened to Neville's tape and read the bible and make conscious attempt to apply it in my family and my personal goals. Today, I hit 12 chin up , starting from 12 counting backwards.I just walk straight to the bar after my grocery shopping without much warm up or think much about it. It was maybe an accumulation of frustration that I am not able to break the 12 mark consistently.
So for my run earlier, I decide to change my running route by going the reverse way. It was refreshing though I am familiar with the route but because it was reverse, my mind had to think differently as well. On the way, I kept reminding myself about my financial goals and not let the reasons and senses on the outside to bring me down. Debts are cleared, trips are planned and so is cheque collected. It is a joyous moment. Rather than carrying the scene in my mind into a continuous one, I keep it simple by reiterating the same scene where I heard the customer service officer asking for my identity card as proof of winner for the lottery ticket.
Keep it simple, no complication till the goal is achieved before moving to the next one else the mind starts to wander too far and too much.
Also, I watched the Live session on the election campaign for the US presidency this morning and learnt a few things. How could someone like Donald Trump who spent less money on the election campaign, with no public office experience and is seen as stubborn, full of expletive language and no clear strategic plans to run the country become the 45th president of United States? I am sure the papers tomorrow would paint a different story citing this or that as the reasons for his winning.
What if it was the collective imagination of the people who were voting that sway the pendulum to his side? They vote not based on the candidates but on their belief what is good for them. Whether the promise is kept and can be delivered remain to be seen but for now that is all it matters. First , we claim the prize and how we go about using the prize money is another matter. That is why some overnight lottery winners could lose their money very quickly while others knew how to leverage and make more money from it.
So, I must also use the same concept on first believing I am worthy of the prize money and accept that this money is mine. Only then, would it make sense to think of how to spend it or invest in different portfolios as I had imagined it to be.
Thank you lord for the revelation.
