I had a feeling of peace within my newfound discomfort as I inherently knew that the conditions of the present would be short-lived. The torture I have put myself through in Houston was over, finally, I could move forward in a real way.
The belief that life will eventually match your thoughts if persisted in is alive and true to the fullest.
Whether positive or negative, your overall disposition will guide and create your life before your very eyes. This isn’t some hocus pocus or something that hasn’t been discovered until today. This is real only because I personally read two books and they totally redesigned my thought process and ultimately my path.
What happened to me was not a new occurrence, it was merely a reminder of the gift of the Spirit inside of me…able to create much more than my current level of intelligence can comprehend. Furthermore, my strong today becomes my weak tomorrow. This can’t happen from the physical human effort. You must increase your thoughts: imagination, belief, focus, and concentration, to the point that you win. Your mindset creates opportunities, you stand-out in a peculiar way because of high levels of focus, concentration, and desire to be somewhere better than you are.
The tools used of the Spirit are:
- Willpower (Sustained Mind)
- Desire (Want but not attained yet)
- Discipline (Acknowledge and let go)
- Imagination (Vision)
- Confidence (knowing in Spirit)
- Faith (Lasting Confidence)
I literally did nothing in my daily life other than read, meditate on what was read, and follow the instruction of those readings. I spent hours in this learning cycle, I knew it was real because it was never work for me, it was my choice time and again to go work on my future self. I sought to understand and match the thought process of the author, not assume the publications were perfect.

Man is not without error this is key, even a billionaire is not “perfect” at business. He seeks principles and strategies that will influence the outcome favorably.
“It is said that the Great Learning is the gate of elementary learning. Whenever you go to the house, first you go in through a gate. Therefore, the gate is a sign that you have reached the house. Going through this gate you enter the house and meet the host. Learning is the gate attainment of the Way. Therefore, knowledge is the gate, not the house. When you see the gate, do not think it is the house. You have to go through the gate to get to the house, which is inside, behind it. Since learning is a gate, when you read books do not think this is the Way.” Miyamoto Musashi – Book of Five Rings
It is not the knowledge you lack… It’s understanding… confidence and discipline multiplied.
Use your thoughts to cultivate your mind. The habit of positive thoughts and beliefs charge the mind. Not everyone agrees and that’s fine but there’s a reason that a list of steps will never work. The mind, spirit, thoughts, metaphysics, all these are topics that many don’t want to discuss because of the amount of mystery and lack of cause and effect style proof.
