Why?

WAS BUDDHA WRONG?

WAS BUDDHA WRONG?

Is it possible, that one of the most famous sayings attributed to Buddha, could be incorrect?

For the past 37 years number one best-selling author David Essel has been one of the leaders in sharing the power of positive thought. At least he was up until 1996.

During that year he had some incredible experiences with people like Maharishi mahesh Yogi, and even RAM DASS, that shattered his belief in the simplicity of positive thinking.

Now hold on. This doesn’t mean he’s not a positive thinker, he just believes that so many of the positive statements being passed around the world are rarely based in any form of reality.

Now back to Buddha. One quote that has been attributed to Buddha that may be fairly inaccurate is this quote “you become what you think about all day long”.

Now at first it sounds good. Actually perfect. That if I want to great stuff in my life and I think great thoughts, well according to this quote, I should experience this in my life. .

So if I think that I am a slim and healthy, and use those thoughts all day well it must be my destiny, because according to Buddhas quote, if I focus all day long on being slim and healthy it must come to fruition.

What about money. If the Buddhist statement is correct, if I think about being wealthy all day long, and since what we think about we become, I must be on my way to great wealth.

And this is where David says… Stop the insanity!

For years he studied, deeply studied Buddhism, but in the end this one quote, that is used on social media every day and even in a highly respected personal growth teachers workshops… The reality is not to be seen. As Essel shares in his number one best-selling book, ” POSITIVE THINKING WILL NEVER CHANGE YOUR LIFE …BUT THIS BOOK WILL!, if any major goal in life is achieved via your positive thoughts… That’s called a miracle. But how many people actually become all of these positive affirmations and thoughts they have all day long?

If the statement was true, why do we still have 70% of Americans are overweight or obese?

Now let’s look at the flipside of this statement

If you look at it from the other direction, regarding negative thoughts, well the statement may hold some validity. “We become what we think about all day long” could be very valid when it comes to people who put themselves down all day long… Or say that they’ll never find deep love… Or they’ll never break their addictions… Or you’ll never get out of debt….here Essel says there may be truth in the Buddhist statement.

But he totally disagrees with the concept that you can think about becoming wealthy, or finding your soulmate, or having the perfect body… And if you just put enough time during the day and are thinking about it it must become your reality.

In David’s number one best selling book, he disposes of the myth of positive statements like this, regarding their lack of power, Even when they come from such powerful teachers as Buddha

David recently stated on a nationally syndicated radio show, that he honestly believes if Buddha was in a room with him today, that even the Buddha himself would agree that David is correct.

It’s not so simple to become what we think about. However, if you work your butt off, combined with positive thoughts daily, that’s the formula for success.

SPIRITUAL FALLACY: IF GOD WANTS ME SOBER, WEALTHY OR MORE, HE WILL DO THAT FOR ME.

SPIRITUAL FALLACY: IF GOD WANTS ME SOBER, WEALTHY OR MORE,
HE WILL DO THAT FOR ME.

There are so many fallacies in the world of spirituality and personal growth.

Here’s one that is absolutely an excuse to NOT change.

“If God wants me sober, or wealthy, or deeply in love, he will find a way to give me those gifts.”

Insanity. Craziness. A great example of our desire to get out of any work IN life to accomplish our goals.

A number of years ago I was working with a woman who truly needed to become sober. Her life was spinning out of control. No one around her could tell the intense pain she was in, but it was evident in her low self-esteem, and the fact that she had begun isolating herself from people and activities in life.

After working together for about six months, she came in one day saying that she had worked with a spiritual teacher over the weekend that told her “if God wanted you sober, you will become sober. Drop any shame and guilt around your drinking, because he’s in control. Until he tells you to change, just continue on your path of drinking but without the shame and guilt.”

I could not believe what I was hearing! What insanity! A spiritual teacher, was telling my client to continue drinking… Even though her life was totally out of control. Of course it goes hand-in-hand with our desire these days to be living in instant gratification. Why do any work? If God wants me to change I will change, and if he doesn’t want me to change he is giving me the OK to stay where I am.

Insanity. That must end.

I continued working with this woman, but it took about two weeks for her to believe that this message the spiritual teacher told her, was absolute nonsense. Crap. Another example of the disgusting spiritual quotes that we all fall victim to sometime.

If you want a big goal, you’ve got to put in big effort. Relying on God to do all the work is really just simple crazy making.

10 Reasons Why You Should Not Be Dating and Should Remain Being Single

For many people being single for any length of time is a fate worse than death.

They feel “less than”. Outcasts. Miserable.

But hold on! One of the reasons our divorce rate is over 50% is because people jump too soon into relationships and marriage. Before they are truly ready.

Below are David Essel’s “Top 10 reasons why you should stay single”, until you’ve been able to work through these issues.

1) “If you can’t handle me at my worst, YOU DO NOT DESERVE ME AT MY BEST.” People who say this are basically saying, “I am a basket case in love, and I want to do whatever I desire…and your role is to just take it.” Entitlement, at it’s worst. Stay single until you remove this nonsense from your belief systems.”

2) Anger at past lover…”If you’re still angry at a past love, who cheated, or dumped you, do not date until you have resolved this. It will come out at your next lovers as distrust, resentments etc. Clean up your past first. ”

3) Out of long term relationship or marriage less than 12 months. ” Take time to heal. Take time to look at your role in the failure of the relationship before you date. ”

4) Looking for your better half? “Do not date if you are looking for your better half, or someone to complete you. Learn how to be enough, as you are.”

5) Believe men are all dogs or women are self centered. “Past negative beliefs will destroy any future love.”

6) Want to date because your tired of being alone. “This is huge! Get comfortable entertaining yourself, or the next person will surely let you down…again.”

7) Tired of raising kids by yourself. “I hear this in my counseling/coaching practice every week. When you are looking for help like this, hire a nanny.”

8) Want someone to take care of your financial stress. “99% of relationships like this end in chaos and drama, resentments on both sides.”

9) Because your friends and family say you are the greatest catch in the world. “This does not mean you are ready to date! Clear up your past first.”

10) All of your friends are in relationships. “This screams insecurity, a terrible reason to date.”

WHY DO I HAVE NEGATIVE BELIEFS?

One of the greatest challenges that people face today, when they want to change their lives, is eradicating negative comments and beliefs from other individuals that they have accepted as true.

David Essel throughout his #1 best selling book “Positive thinking will never change your life… But this book will!”, explains that the problem isn’t that the person believes these negative comments on the conscious level… But they’ve been embedded in the subconscious level for years,so we just act out what we have heard, even though it may not necessarily be true at all.

In his book David tells the story of a young woman, whose mom had berated her for years about her lack of understanding math.

Her mother had convinced her that she was stupid. That she would never learn math. That she would never be good with money. And so with these comments now cemented in this young girls subconscious mind, she acted them out for the rest of her life.

Even though at the age of 20, without a high school education because she dropped out due to her mothers comments that she will always be stupid, she secured an entrepreneurial position and earned $150,000 in her first year alone!

Unfortunately, when she started making that kind of money her mother came back into her life telling her that she was stupid still with math, that she will blow all her money, and of course the young girl did exactly that.

Fast forward 20 years. The girls mother is still telling her she’ll never be good with money, and this young girl now turned almost middle age has manifested financial stress her entire life. Because of her fear of rocking the boat and leaving her mother once and for all, she continues to have her in her life, and her mother continues to self sabotage her daughters existence.

The answer? As David states so clearly in the book, there are times in life that we need to move away from those negative yet influential people, who have planted these negative beliefs that are not necessarily true in our brains.

It might mean that you have to totally cut off that relationship. Or it could mean that you just greatly diminish the time that you speak to those individuals. But as we all know, some of the greatest steps to success are the most difficult ones. And that’s OK.

Then let’s look at the other side. The power of someone’s positive comments. David goes on to share a personal story in his book about how he was never very good at school, and especially spelling. With an older sister who is incredibly intelligent, and who always got A’s in her classes, he never felt that he lived up to family expectations. So he became an athlete, and a damn good one. But his parents and his teachers knew that he had to do better in school if wanted a successful career outside of athletics.

In third grade David met a mentor and teacher Sister Vidette. She took him under her wings. She told him he could become a great speller, that he could raise his grades if he worked really hard. At first he didn’t believe her. But she was relentless. Meetings with his parents became a regular event. Sister told David and his parents that she saw brilliance in him.

Through incredible hard work, and a persistent teacher and parents who believed in David, he became an exceptional speller. Little did he know at that time that later on in life her comments would be the creation of a career as an author. While his athletic life ended after two years of playing basketball at Syracuse University, his excellence in spelling would lead him to become incredibly successful in life.

David’s work in the subconscious mind, has helped millions of people to move past those negative comments of family, friends, coaches and even teachers… Allowing them to shake the past once and for ever, and to plant positive beliefs where at one time there were only negative ones.

As a society, many of us are told we will never be enough. We will never be good enough. David’s work is to reverse that trend, and give adults as well as young adults the chance to reverse the negative beliefs implanted by others… So they can be free, successful and happy in life. This is possible for everyone, but a key to change is understanding that you cannot cover up a negative belief with a positive one……you actually have to do the work, day after day, to eradicate all limitations.

MOTIVATED MINDSET IS NEVER ENOUGH FOR HUGE SUCCESS!

MOTIVATED MINDSET IS NEVER ENOUGH FOR HUGE SUCCESS!

We’ve been told for years, that if we just got motivated enough, with a motivated mindset, we could accomplish anything we want.

That if we had a motivated , positive mindset, we could achieve greatness.

NONSENSE.

Why do so many people struggle with motivation? Why do some people expect that a book or a lecture is going to change their life?

Why are so many people attracted to falsehoods like “the law of attraction ” to bring them checks in the mail, or their soulmate?

Why do so few people… Let me repeat, why do so few people in the United States of America, have the body they want?

Why do so few people in America… have the money they desire?

As a number one best-selling author, I know the answer… to shatter the illusion of the power of the mind… Of affirmations… Of vision boards…

As I explain in our book, “Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…” the major problem with why people don’t have the money, body, love life they want is because of something we termed in 1996 “human nature”.

“Human nature is our desire to get the most out of life with minimal effort”.

For the millions of people who still buy in to teachings like the Law of Attraction, we must ask ourselves, why after practicing the principles, do I still struggle with money? Or my weight? Or love?

We have hit on something huge here! If you’re going to go to a weekend personal growth workshop and expect to change… Save your money… In our book we outline the secret of millionaires, bodybuilders, people with lasting beautiful love relationships…

You can have what you want… If you’re willing to get extremely uncomfortable, and we prove this point with over 100 success stories of people who never thought they could achieve the life of their dreams. But they have.

Now you can have the same thing.

A motivated mindset is not enough. Motivation for most of us is fickle, here 1 week gone the next.

The answer? Stop wishing for success and go take it!

Like millionaire Ray Higdon, who created an incredible business in sales by prospecting daily….he never stopped cold calling until he got 20 rejections a day.

Or my client Tracy, who lost 80 pounds in a year, by going to the gym 6 days a week, at 10 pm, the only time it could fit into her schedule.

ARE YOU READY FOR MASSIVE CHANGE?

GO GET IT! TODAY!

David Essel’s 8 Laws to Attract Success

8 laws to attract success

David Essel’s 8 Laws to Attract Success

The “Law of Attraction” excites Americans with dreams coming true, like imagining “checks in the mail “, so that we become millionaires. Or that by having a vision board we will somehow magically attract our soulmate to us. It taps into the emotional side of many people who love to live in this realm of life. But it’s not very realistic.
It’s more “wishful thinking” than anything else.

Let’s think for a moment. If a program offers huge results, with little to no effort, isn’t it time to stop buying into the insanity?

Millions of people have used this technique, yet few will ever find success from ” fantastical affirmations.”

So, where do we go from here?

David has the answer that will help people breakthrough this “wishful thinking” in order to get the real RESULTS they desire.

Inside David’s #1 best-selling book, “Positive thinking will never change your life…but this book will! The myth of positive thinking, the reality of success,” he shares that affirmations are a great way to start the day. But it doesn’t matter how much emotion someone puts behind them, they are never going to radically change anyone’s life, unless it’s a miracle. Enough of the nonsense!

The following information can be used by anyone to create the life they desire. After interviewing David on her national radio show, celebrity host Jenny McCarthy encouraged her millions of listeners to follow the outline in his #1 best selling book. This book is already endorsed by hundreds upon hundreds of people.

In Jenny’s words, “David Essel is the new leader, of the positive thinking movement.”

Below are excerpts from David’s book, which has already been endorsed by six New York Times best selling authors.

“DAVID ESSEL’S 8 LAWS to ATTRACT SUCCESS”

Number 1. The ability to be successful lies within everyone. Yes, you can create an incredible income, lose the weight you desire, create deep loving relationships, release addictions and find a pathway to your creator. You have THE RIGHT to be successful, as much anyone else on this earth.

Number 2. Unless it’s a miracle, your thoughts are not powerful enough to create success on their own. Your thoughts will not create “checks in the mail”, weight loss, nor will they attract the perfect lover. We’ve been fed nonsense if we believe these success fallacies. This is crucial to not only understand, but to accept as true.

Number 3. The number one block to success, are the beliefs held deep within the subconscious mind. The role of the subconscious, is to keep you exactly where you are, which is commonly referred to as the “comfort zone of life.” Now, this doesn’t mean that the “comfort zone”, or these subconscious thoughts are healthy. Wherever you are lacking success, we can guarantee that your subconscious thoughts are sabotaging the success you desire.

Number 4. A thought, regardless of how positive it is, cannot change a negative behavior long term. Unless it’s a miracle. You cannot “think, or affirm”, your way out of an addiction, financial hardship or a terrible relationship.

Number 5. The only way to turn the subconscious mind around, from a saboteur to an ally, is to repetitively, on a daily basis, do the action steps you would rather not do. Success demands that we all invest more time, effort and money into our biggest goals. Over time, you can create a subconscious mindset that will continue to push you forward on your path of success.

Number 6. In 37 years of work in the field of personal growth, we have found on average that an individual who is struggling with addiction, weight, finances or their love life… Will have to put approximately 12 months, or 365 days of doing the work they would rather not do, in the area of life they are struggling with, in order to turn the subconscious mind around.

Number 7. Through action steps into the uncomfortable for a 12-month period time, the uncomfortable just becomes who you are. Where in the beginning it was a struggle to lose 100 pounds, at the end of 12 months of changing your diet and exercise habits, the new habits simply become who you are. An effortless part of your life. Success.

Number 8. Affirmations, vision boards, and the like, will be important for only 20% of your success. Regardless of what you’ve been told, statements such as, “what you think about you bring about” are not true. Unless it’s a miracle, 80% of your success will come from your willingness to do the steps you would rather not do on a daily basis. This is the true “secret” of success.
