How a Butterfly Flapping its Wings… Can Help You Get AHEAD in Life!

Did you know that weather forecasters can not predict the weather…. anymore than 5 to 7 days ahead of time? Why is this?

Because there are always subtle and tiny changes that occur within our atmosphere… and these tiny changes can add up and drastically change the outcome of the weather in a significant way.

That’s why it is said that a tiny butterfly flapping it’s wings… can cause a devastating tsunami to occur half-a-world away!! This phenemona is called the BUTTERFLY EFFECT.

This is what happened in The Butterfly Effect movie with Ashton Kutcher. He would go back in time… and the little, tiny, minor changes that he made in the past… had HUGE effects in the future!

I believe we can apply this Butterfly Effect in our lives also. Sometimes, when we are trying to get somewhere in life… or if we are trying to attain a position… we try to make HUGE leaps and bounds all at once! What happens more times than not, is we get burned out by the process… and give up.

Now taking huge leaps like this can work for you if you’re TOTALLY 110% dedicated to achieving your goal. For instance, I had a major surgery in early-March… and dropped about 18 lbs. within that next week. When I got well enough to start lifting weights again, I made a goal to myself that I would QUICKLY gain 20-25 lbs. of pure muscle in 6 weeks. I am currently on Week 4 of my plan… and have gained 13 lbs. of muscle. I’m a bit behind schedule… but I’m totally committed!

All that took dedication… it took heart… it took me FORCING myself to eat when I’m not hungry (5-6 meals a day, about 4000 calories a day)… it took me downing NASTY protein drinks and protein bars that taste like cardboard paper… it took me forcing myself to get 8 hours of sleep at minimum a day… and it took me forcing myself to go to the gym 3 times a week and throwing weights around like I was Conan the Barbarian.

But for most people, QUICK change is NOT necessary (most of the time)… and it is 10 x easier for you to implement SMALLER changes over a longer amount of time… rather than to implement LARGE changes over a short amount of time.

For instance, I could have decided to gain 20-25 lbs. of muscle in 6 months (instead of 6 weeks)… which would only require me to gain about 1 lb. a week which is pathetically easy! Doing it this way, would allow me an easier process to attaining my goal… and would also increase the chance that I don’t get burned out by trying to acheive the goal.

The same can be applied in almost any area of your life. If you want to write a 100-page book… using the BUTTERFLY EFFECT… you can say to yourself, “I want to accomplish that in 6 months (about 182 days), so that means I only need to write HALF A PAGE a day.” That’s it! How easy is that??

If you want to build a online business that guarantees you financial freedom… take the BUTTERFLY EFFECT method. Say to yourself, I will concentrate all my efforts to make $20 that FIRST month. Once you have hit that goal, the next month focus for making $40. Then the next month focus on hitting $80… then $160… then $320… then $640… then $1280… then $2560… you get the point!

All the big goals that we set for ourselves in lives… can be acheived by hitting small goals that lead up to the big one! That is why it is said the ONLY way to eat an elephant… is by taking one small bite at a time.

Jesus once said to His disciples… “Anything is POSSIBLE to you… if you BELIEVE”. Believe today friend… and you WILL achieve great and mighty things!

Be blessed and walk in God’s rich abundance today!

If You’re Not Ready to Change for the Better… then DON’T Read This!

Earlier this week, my good friend and old college classmate from Oklahoma State U, Jasper Nhira, tagged myself and about 25 of his other Facebook friends in a VERY intriguing note that he wrote… that was short, concise, to the point, and on time!

So after reading this powerful note he wrote… I decided to take a week’s vacation from writing, and send it to the 200+ members of this Facebook group… and the hundreds more that follow the daily motivational blog at TodayAbundance.com

Enjoy!

My Decision To Change, What About You?

If what you’ve been doing isn’t working then do something new.

I’ve been reflecting on where I am and where I want to be and I’m not completely satisfied with where I’m at. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful for where God has brought me but I know I could be further.

Some people say that the best athletes and people in general are those who are never satisfied with where they’re at but constantly seek to be better. I guess that’s how I feel?

But instead of just whining and complaining I began to look at ME to see what I’m doing that’s holding me back from this place called “further.” That place is different for each one of us but for me “further” is a wife, a home, a career, a business, a ministry, the list goes on and on.

The main thing is that I am no longer waiting on a mystical movement from God or anyone else that will bring the things I have just listed to me. I’m going to take heed to James 2:17, “Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone.”

I am going to work harder then I’ve ever worked before to get what I want out of this life. God is still my source and He will give me favor and guidance but he will not do the work for me, therefore I’m going to work, work and work hard for the things that He and I want for myself. I hope you do the same

Make the decision to Change!
