It’s been a pretty draining week to say the least. My mom’s condition worsened rapidly, which meant that someone (either her Fiance, Tom or I) had to be with her at all times. She has had trouble walking, some terrible rounds of nausea, debilitating headaches, and does a lot of sleeping. It certainly has been scary and hard to deal with. But in situations like these you are constantly searching for silver linings in seemingly endless dark clouds. It turns out all of these symptoms are a result of the radiation, and not of her condition. So we know that after three weeks of radiation, these symptoms will subside and she’ll start to feel more and more like herself. The radiation, although it is helping her fight off some of the tumors in her brain, is brutal on her body and I’ll be happy when it is over. Looking deeper for a silver lining I find the other treatment she is on, treatment sent directly from the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. Burzynski is definitely a controversial figure in medical community with most Oncologists quickly dismissing his work as nonsense. I have to admit a search for Burzynski Clinic on google can definitely yield some scary results when you’re looking for hope. But I did some research of my own, and actually was able to find some independent success stories of Burzynski patients. They all had some very good things to say, and I’ve actually spoken to a few by phone who came back from some very scary places. They certainly have been sources of hope. If you know me, and the path I’ve chosen in my life (entrepreneur), you know that optimism is a very important aspect of my life. I mean what are the typical odds in creating a successful business? 5, 10%? My mom has better odds than that, so as far as I’m concerned there’s not too much to fear. Odds are only averages, not guarantees. I have no doubt I’ll develop an incredibly successful business with Call True and then go on to do it many times, and I equally have no doubt my mom will recover fully and be stronger than ever.
That is why I’ve chosen to link to the Million Dollar Experiment by Steve Pavlina. Steve has an amazing blog about personal development, and he is a firm believer in the power of intention. He has put out for the world to see his intention of generating a million extra dollars this year. Here is his intention:
In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend $1,000,000 to come into my life and into the lives of everyone who holds this intention.
He believes that just by putting it out there, making himself and the universe aware, and without forcing it to happen but instead allowing, it will come true. It’s a powerful thought. And quite frankly, it can’t hurt. So I myself am putting out two intentions for the universe to absorb, and develop:
In a natural, low pain, high growth, care free, happy, healthy, positive way, I intend my mom to make a full recovery to a stronger, healthier, and happier body than she has ever had before in the shortest period of time necessary.
For the good of us all, in a happy, easy going, positive, healthy, effective, organic yet rapid way, I intend for Call True to reach $5 million in revenues in the next 12 months.
I’m also going to add his intention as one of my own:
In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend $1,000,000 to come into my life and into the lives of everyone who holds this intention
Steve has already generated $800 this week towards his total! Who knows what this week will bring for my intentions. I’m going to write these down and post them on my mirror as well so I’m reminded every morning of these intentions.
