Are you ready for a change? I mean, honestly and truly ready for a change? One of the earliest lessons my father taught me was to be direct, honest and always speak the truth. Unfortunately, many folks simply can’t handle either–but over the next few days, that’s exactly what you’ll get from me. Please know that what you’ve already begun reading is not just another “inspirational,” “weight loss” or “self-help” book designed to help you reach a short-term goal. This is a guide along a path that leads away from your current state of complacency towards total wellness. Greatness repels complacency, so if you have no desire to be great it’s best that you put this guide down now and continue on the path you’ve been traveling for far too long. However, I can assure you that your soul will never find the peace it so desperately desires above all else.
This guide will help you discover the anointing God has intended on your life since the dawn of time. Despite those old familiar doubts that may already be creeping into your mind, He has a plan just for you. Unfortunately, if you decide not to fulfill your destiny that assignment will never be accomplished. This guide allows you to get out of your own way and become not only a blessing to yourself, but to others. I truly thank God for allowing me the opportunity to be your personal Sherpa as you trek towards a goal that may now seem as impossible as climbing the Himalayas. Once you reach the summit of your success and look back from whence you’ve come, your heart will rejoice because it will realize you have everything within to conquer future mountains. Your body, mind & spirit will be awakened!
If you are unsure of what it feels like to be “awakened,” read on. Some things must be experienced first-hand to be understood and truly appreciated. However, a glimpse may be all that’s required to initiate an irreversible process in your life. For some, that glimpse will occur for the first time while reading this guide. For many others that have yet to realize it, the process has already begun. This guide will simply help them realize it. For some, it may have begun as a result of painful life-changing events; for others, through coming in contact with folks who simply have an unexplainable “light” emanating within, through reading particular books, a recent spiritual experience–or any combination thereof. If your awakening process has just begun, this guide will certainly prepare you for the journey that lies ahead.
It’s widely believed that it takes 21 days to break a habit–or better yet, just 21 days to create a new one and make sure you are on the right path towards your true destination. Therefore, I’ve broken this guide into 21 chapters that allow you to read, reflect, and begin to map your plan of action as you study a chapter each day.
That said, I’m extremely excited because I am well aware of all the new discoveries and revelations that await you. They happened to me! I’m not better, just different. And the difference is better. When we are blessed with a gift, we can either choose to hoard it for fear that the next blessings may be few and far between, or freely share it with others because we’ve learned that one of the keys that unlocks a door to happiness is the joy of giving. Despite our best efforts, we have no say in what others choose to give to us. However, we are in 100% control of what we decide to share with others. It is my choice to freely share this blessing with you. I pray that you make the most of it, because your future blessings may hinge on how you respond to this blessing.
