Halfway through 2019. Mr. Bull has a few words.

Well you’re probably saying to yourself that’s a hell of a way to start a post! I couldn’t agree more. As promised, I posted a few weeks ago this quote that really resonated with me and said a future post on it is coming.

“I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting sick of their own bullshit.”

– Elizabeth Gilbert

So being we’re halfway through 2019, I’m going to call out some of my bullshit in areas in my life I’m supposedly working on. This post isn’t intended by any means to get loving don’t beat yourself up Dwight comments. In fact any get off your ass comments would be much appreciated and much respected!!

Here goes in no special order the things I wanted to make process on this year:

Lose 25 pounds

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You haven’t committed to one diet or plan of attack. You got Oreos in the fridge and junk food in the cupboards. When the hell are you going to bust a move on this? You can fricken do it if you just put your mind to it and tell that tummy to chilllll.

Get fit

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You have consistently been inconsistent on your workouts. You know what to do and have the tools to use. Start way way small and start building up a routine.

Get more social (like in person)

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You’ve had maybe 4 social outings this year. You haven’t pushed yourself in this area at all. You stay home in your comfort zone wishing for friends you can do things with. I know it’s “hard” for you, but come on man so is being lonely. Believe it or not there are people out there that are looking for the same things you are – real friends.

Battle my dragons (depression)

Mr. Bull: That’s Bullshit! You started off the year great taking on the fight and even documenting some of the tools here, BUT again you’re not using these tool in a daily practice as you KNOW that’s what it takes.

There’s probably more but to be honest I’m quite tired of all this bullshit🤪. Come the end of 2019 I’m go to make big gains in these areas and tell Mr. Bull to go frick off and don’t come back.

Any other bullshitters out there? Let’s get it done and motivate each other.

Hell Yah,

Dwight

* Reminder – you can’t be kind or give Mr. Bull an inch!

Dwight goes marbles!

What can you do with one marble?

See the jar on the right? What’s different between that and the Others?

It’s POTENTIAL! It’s me.

At least that’s how I’m rolling with it for my new 2019 ritual.

I got the idea from James Clear in his book called Atomic Habits. James says we as a group love to track and describes by how using marbles as an example we can track the habits we strive for in life. I found the book quite interesting and highly recommended it! I have this make belief world in my head where I’m doing EVERYTHING right and only doing good things – only to awaken after another year and nothing changes. This year I’m going to change all that and roll with James idea and put my own spin on it!

So in my world I start on the left jar with Spirit. For me, it’s all the energy and abundance that surrounds Everything. This spirit supplies the universe with its energy and opportunities of possibilities which is represented in my middle jar. Each soul has the opportunity to dance with this energy of the universe or not. If you choose not Spirit doesn’t care. It will just dance by giving you “NOT”. I for one am tired of not and not growing and expanding to my full beautiful potential. This year I’m the right jar and my job is to dance with the universe and fill it with good habits.

I first started off by writing down all the good themes that I currently think would turn my life around and I could use to make me more accountable.

Next I think about some habits I could use that will guide me in the right direction. For every action I take the universe of possibility smiles and gladly puts a marble in my jar.

For each positive action, I get another marble.

As soon as the universe of possibility transfers a marble, spirit replenishes it just as easy as that.

There is an infinite amount of “marbles” the universe of possibility can contain. All I need to do is ACT and start the dance.

So I put the jars in my living room where I can see them daily just waiting for me to play. I discovered right of the bat though to keep the lids open – it helps with flow.

Every action taken that day toward my themes gets a marble from the universe of possibility put into my jar. Not only do I move it over, but I also write it down.

I’m creating triggers that reinforce my habits.

So at this point you may be asking what about spirit? What replenishes it?

All of us do!

Every morning I empty “my marbles” back into spirit and the dance starts all over again.

Instead of living this make belief world in my head, I’m now creating a wonderful REAL world!

What can you do with one marble?
