In today’s Mind Mastery Daily I interview my 88 year old dad, Lewis M. Shepard about the challenging time in his work life where he was laid off and my mom was on strike.
Which just happened to be the year my sister was in her first year at an expensive college.
Watching my parents struggle with uncertainty around money and employment I “got” the lesson that the only “security” we have is our ability to be resourceful enough to either find work we love or find a way to love the work we find so that are souls are not worn and torn by it.
Ultimately it’s a PROCESS of listening to your own heart as well as beginning to notice how all of our cultural programming is almost “designed” to keep us docile, compliant, punching the time clock and ultimately MISERABLE.
Work, Time, Money & Love
This interview probably belongs in my new “Hypnotize Yourself To Be Magnetically Attractive To Money” course… so I’ll put it there with the audio download and transcript. And YOU will get first dibs on that course as soon as it’s ready enough for you to check out…
But today, YOUR mission, should you choose to accept it, is to ask yourself these heavy yet ultimately uplifting questions:
- If I only had one year to live what would I be doing in that time?
- If I only had 6 months to live what would I be doing with that time?
- If I only had 90 days…
- If I only had a week…
- If I only had a single day…
Sometimes to really challenge myself, I’ll ask myself, “Mark, (oh my beloved :o) if you only had an hour to live what would you do right now?”
Sometimes the answer is to sit quietly and simply appreciate being alive.
That’s a real doozy of a focus question… and then there is always the fun to be had asking the questions I’ve been playing with a lot here on this site as well as in my own life and practice:
- “What is the one thing I can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?”
- “Why does it work out better than I can possibly Imagine?”
- “Why is THIS perfect? and How can I improve upon it?”
I will see YOU on the inside!
Got questions? I have answers and I want you to have them, so…
