Thank you everyone who listens to the program. As I mention today having this project in my life adds to my feeling fulfilled. I recognize that Buddhism, and other religions, help to answer what is the purpose of ones life. I know that when I was using drugs and alcohol I thought the purpose was to party and consume goods but that is shallow and becomes empty very fast. When I got clean I found a new purpose to change my addiction habits and live life well and with meaning. Now I see that striving for a goal that has meaning to me is the journey of life that I enjoy.
Well today I add a little more to the suggestions to get us to the best week ever. Mostly I give examples of why this has worked so well for me and countless others. I also remind us all that it’s not about a quick fix it’s about applying fitness, which means small incremental changes toward our goal.
Caution: Today at the end of the episode I share with the audience and I get moved emotionally.
Today’s episode: I was contacted by a listener who felt that my suggestions this week we too strong. I address that, then make a few more suggestions of habits of success. The suggestions are to start or continue writing three things to be grateful for every evening before bed. Then also add a list of five success that occurred today, they can be anything, large or small. Write down any steps you took toward your dreams and finally something you did that was an action toward your happiness.
As we work toward creating the best week “EVAH!” I share a little insight as to why I’m doing it this way. I add some suggestions to deal with any negative thoughts that may come up. I also add a little bit more to our morning ritual and that is a thought for the day, a meditation and a prayer.
I’d like to thank one of my mentors Sam Crowley for the inspiration to teach “the best week EVAH!” That’s how he says it and I can feel that energy and want to pass it along. So listen up! This week, do what I tell you and find a positive result. If you don’t like it, fine. I’m only sharing what is working for me and I’ve gone from Booze to Buddha and from lonely, miserable and depressed to happy, joyous and fulfilled.
