30 days to transformation

I cannot stress enough how 30 days, one month, four weeks or however you want to size it up is the key to personal transformation.

There is a book titled the Greatest Salesman in the World, authored by Og Mandino which was recommended to me by my uncle Rashid some years ago. This book delivers a method of change in appreciation for anyone who my be a little off their perspective path or require guidance without being preached to.

I suffered some emotional ups and downs in my life and you wonder if it will ever end when experiencing an emotional storm. I can truly attest how a simple 30 day practice of change is transformational. BUT, there has to be commitment to change.
Here are a list of things that can be transformed in 30 days with the correct method and dedication:

  • Your Physical body for the better.
  • Your outlook on any given subject.
  • Your health mental and physical.
  • Your addiction (eradicated).
  • Your entire being.
  • Your Love life.
  • As a matter of fact I had feelings of despair, thinking the world absolutely is horrible, only to have a small change redirect my focus in a blink of an eye. If magic is available in that manor, just think what magic you could experience in 30 days.

    Stay so fresh and so Clean cause ain’t not body dope as you.

    WOW it’s quiet…Then GOD Spoke…whispered

    Life in my reality has been really noisy for years, and I did not know it. Thing about noise is we can get use to external sounds and not understand that when we think life is quiet, there is still too much noise. To name a few, TV, radio, people, engine, tire, ringing ears, emotions are all thing creating much noise.

    Yeah, I know that last paragraph was a handful and kind of abstract to most people, but stay with me.

    Everywhere we go there is noise. Sounds are assaulting our ears at any given time. I never understood this until I had to sit in my residence after removing all the excess physical belongings accumulated over 15 years of living in my so called palace. Life got complicated and I needed to get simple, you know go minimalism. As I sat in my empty house in the middle of the night I noticed silence has sound and it can be deafening.  I was determined to find true peaceful silence.

    Can you hear the seeds move?

    I did find there was a time, for me when the noise of the material world diminished to levels where I could perceive the intelligence of things unnoticed and everything in between. That connection to the absence of physical sound came one morning when the noise in my head had been too loud emotionally the night before. It was brought to me by whispering aloud to myself, “What and I going to do?” One morning  by my empty garage,  without a sound, for a lack of better description it came to being, “Do not worry, this time has passed you will be new.” All I had to do was ask. There it was in a microsecond, then it was gone. The feeling was permanent.

    After that experience, the task of hearing without sound became extremely important in my life, the experience of  being able to feel and connect with a new dimensionallly or rarely tapped sense became  important. It is hard to put into words but some of you may understand what I am talking about.

    One thing it made me act upon is shutting the Fuck up and listening more to people, and life. Let the organic speak to me.

    After this experience, this polished media world turned grey, and the ability to see bullshit value in an instant became really clear.

    God somehow spoke to me, actually whispered and continues to do so. I just have to recognize the language and message.

    However you picture GOD,  it’s personal to you, and I respect that. Currently I believe internally there is  a better understanding of GOD being everything. Alpha and Omega is much clearer.

    All I can say is if you seek the “quiet” enough to be able to ask your important question, please have the patience to let the quiet settle. The answer will come.

    Not Creepy but Someone is watching you.

    There is some who is observing what you do. Don’t get creeped out, but it is a truth. Ninety percent of the time we are partially aware of our surroundings. Like I said don’t be creeped out. In this day and age we put so much information about our personal lives up for grabs and then we freak when someone who is not on your radar give you a clue they are observing your life.

    From 2010-07-20

    This is a Creepy Picture, I took in Milwaukee!

    That is not the point of my topic. The brainwashing continues to evolve in our society that things have to have a negative spin.

    I am referring to admiration. There is a wonderful feeling to get confirmation about how you live your life has impacted another person as an example of how to live. I was an only child, therefore I really did not have a model to live by i.e older brother, sister, or cousin. Much of my early childhood gave me few examples I though were worth wild, so I turned to the thing in the world I felt were good and just.

    I grew up in Detroit during the heyday of the Young Boys incorporated and the arrival of Crack cocaine.  I was an only child with a strong presence from my mother, I knew caution was my friend… actually extreme caution was my friend. I chose to follow the path of the narrow, since the path that was broad had too much risk.

    I have followed this philosophy to this day. There were a few times in my life when I slipped and followed, but it turned out to be a lesson to fortify a reason to stay in my own lane of life., and just do  ME.

    The reason I started to write this post started from a memory that put a smile on my face. There was a kid who I though had the world by a string when i lived in Detroit proper as a teenager. He was a musician, the girls loved him and he made friends easily. Some 20 years later, we met again and spent some time together over several months. ‘

    I realized our lives had taken drastically different paths. His path led him to the penitentiary, while I had built a family and a career. Other aspect of our early child/teen years came to light as well. One thing that he informed me of was how for the longest time admired the way I carried myself and my life when we were young. Blew my socks off to hear that, because this guy is and was talented and displayed great confidence. I kind of looked up to this guy because during our teen years he had so much confidence, was very respectful, and had freedoms other could not handle.
    To find out that He was looking up to me was a shocker. During our mid teens my path changed and we began did not see each other much.

    Example # 2

    I was a guitar player for a local church when I was 29 years old. During a revival the church brought in a young keyboard player and drummer from a different congregation.  They were AWESOME musicians.  I played guitar to fill in the sound and the keyboard player and I hit it off . I found out this guy was only 19 years old, but carried himself  like a man many years older.  He was marred with a small daughter, and played for his fathers church.  As time passed and we played more gospel functions together, I asked if his family would like to have diner with my family, I would cook.  We had a nice time., and we continued our friendship for a few more years. Then paths separate me from people again. The temporary factor set in.

    Years later I had an inkling to visit the church where the young keyboard player father was pastor. Things had changed, II walked into the church, took a seat. Watched as my old friend played the organ with such grace and felt good that he was doing well. Just as he noticed me , he stopped playing, the music stopped and he walked over  hugged me, and introduced me to the entire congregation. Then he proclaimed this is Brother Emmitt. He changed my life,  then he thanked GOD and went back to the keyboard and began playing  for the rest of the service. (wait,WHAT!)

    After the service he informed me that I gave him direction because of how I lived, and until that point he had not seen a young black man who had his own house, took care of his family and lives a decent life without being shady.  He told me that I let him know the dream was possible. GOD works in mysterious way.

    My ramblings in this post are this, you don’t know who is watching and admiring what you do and who you are. Yes you are doing all the right things but the wrong things may seem easier. There is someone who loves you for who you are and what you can become . Live that life to inspire others to reach their potential, and your happiness will fill with abundance

    Love you All

    Be Bless and Happy

    Mistakes…the guide to Serendipity

    I made a simple mistake, I mess up, flubbed, did a dumb thing.

    I have another podcast and website that I use to have fun with and spend time with my closest friends producing. The real reason we do the podcast is a scheduled reason to spend an allotted predetermined time together. We have fun doing it, and have been for the last 2 years. Over the last 2 years we created over 50 shows and a great deal of pictures and content.
    We have also changed the show since its inception, with the addition of my wife as a co-anchor.

    Two days ago in an effort to update the BLOG www.emmittandrick.com to the latest software updates, I CRASHED the sit in a horrible fashion. Now if you got to the website there is a shell of what once was.

    Since then I have set about recovering the data that was lost,which may take some time. The great aspect is I have revamped and started new, call it rebirth if you will. Now I can give Kellie the proper credit she deserves on the podcast.

    Thanks to wordpress.com, we now have http://erkshow.wordpress.com/

    Sometime, mistakes are designed to happen to force you to grow to something better. Once you realize you are better because of the mistake occurring you understand Serendipity.

    People watching and interaction

    There is nothing greater than the return of a smile.  One method of being happy, is being comfortable with the people around you no matter where you are. Strike up a conversation with a stranger the next time you are in a checkout line.

    Being intentionally nice to people has great benefits, they usually return your niceness.

    Let’s just be nice to other people.

    Where does Self Esteem come forward from?

    Confidence, Self Esteem, and happiness are all a part of self love.  It is one of those funny question as where does it come from, or how do you obtain it. The answer is simple. Self esteem comes from living and accomplishment. It is my belief we all start out with a zero point on the self esteem ladder. Some points we go positive some point we go negative. If there are too many factors (people) detracting from your self esteem, then Low Self esteem is the outcome.

    Your experience is just that, YOURS. If you use things out of your control as a barometer for your existence them you will have a tough go at it. This is why we see superstars who are adored by the public with really messed up lives. They need the approval of other as a measure of their worth. The alternative are those Media stars who perform their acts as a matter of an expression of THEIR Individual passion.

    Starting over (Right in front of your face)

    Sometimes we get so busy doing things, making strides to progress that we never really get anywhere. Then There are time where frustration lead to boredom, then abandonment. I thinks it what we in the modern time refer to as A.D.D.

    For me, I like to see my ideas have marked progress. There are projects that I work on and if they don’t progress as fast as I think they should the inevitable happens. They get less attention and die off. his is o so true in the blog, book publishing and podcast world.  Oh sure we all say, I will focus my attention on ______ (fill in previous  the blank), but nothing ever happens. We/I make excuses or postpone things until the importance in minute.

    I am done, the sleeping giant has awaken, with the procrastination, the challenge has been accepted. National Podcast Post  Month put a little email in my box spurring my energies to make what was old new again.

    So I have to be about my passion, which is being happy, sharing happy, joy and podcasting.  The last podcast I did, was January 2010, and ever since I have been wondering when I would get back to doing what I do, Positive Podcasting.
