Mind Sunday Sermon

You can do it but at what cost?

In the month of November 2021 I repeated the words I am Prosperous and Abundant Right now. I started with 2-4 times a day and by the end of the month I was up to 30-40x per day. I had a goal of hitting my sales budget at work. Even though we were still in a semi lock down due to Covid, I decided I could do it.

I repeated the affirmation so many times that I came within 3k of hitting my November goal and it helped me with my December numbers, which is at 120% of budget. This came from a lot of the work I did in November. (Today’s date 12/12/21)

I like to think I usually stay in a pretty good state of balance. Money, Relationships, Food and Shelter, Exercise, Spiritual and controlling my Mind Power. In November, I slipped on pretty much everything except Prosperity. I can tell you from this experience, that things you may not think you can do, you can. But it may take a toll on the other aspects of your state of being.

In December it caught up to me. I got extremely bloated, was tired, and had headaches. This past Saturday, my stomach got so bloated it was Hard like a Rock and I couldn’t go to the bathroom for 2.5 days. I thought I had a bowel blockage and they wanted me to come to the ER. I calmed myself, ate only fruit and vegetables and got exercise and SLEPT. I fell better now (Monday). The cause of my body getting out of whack was due to not eating right, not enough exercise, I had stopped meditating and was basically just doing one thing. Trying to hit my numbers through affirmation and action.

I do not recommend being on a one track plan. I do want you to know that you can do anything thru God who strengthens you. Things are possible. But to sacrifice your health is not Good. God would not want you to do that.

I am proud that I almost hit my numbers in November and over achieved in December. But I am not happy that I could have ended up in the hospital.

Ya know, what else happened during all of this. 6 people at my job quit. We only have 34 people, now we have 28. I was so set on hitting my budget and staying out of any fray. I must not have noticed anything around me. I worked on myself to be prosperous so much that I lost touch with my co-workers. It’s not a normal month, when 6 people disappear. Good thing is I’ll never know what they THOUGHT they saw happening around and to them. Because I was just working on myself to get to my goal.

PRO TIP: I picked this tip up in November. People like to gossip and talk about why people left. This or that or whatever it was. Number one: Remember No one or Nothing can affect your good mood. Number two: If asked why did they leave, just say: You gotta ask them, I don’t know. And you really don’t know. I love this saying and will use it more often when confronted with unwanted gossip.

Today’s lesson: You can achieve whatever you set your mind to do. Use affirmations, action and a positive attitude. But do not forget about the other quadrants in your life. You could end up hurting yourself badly. It may be better to hit 80% of your goal and stay healthy.
