Wisdom Moment #20
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 115]

The Discipline of Authenticity

So the drill is simple.

You no longer allow others to polish your daisies and no one has the right to because as of now, you decide whether it’s sunny or not. Because from now on, as someone with MIND, no mind, you CARRY your own weather with you in your own pocket.

Now as a Jesuit of Justice (only truth) you carry your own “iv drip” of SUNSHINE wherever you go because you already have enough. THIS is why you decided you didn’t need to be watered by other people. Begin to FEEL “right” now and all the time.

Wisdom Moment #20 Thoughts
Become greater than your better. In order to get to the life that you were born to live, you must first start right where you are and know and believe in the greatness that it already has. If you keep thinking that your great life is in the past or somewhere in the future, that is where it will always be and you will never experience the blessing of the current moment.

Wisdom Moment #20 Action
Take time today to consider your current greatness. Shut off all of the noise, T.V., newspaper, radio, Internet, etc. and sit down. Grab a pen and a note book. Date your page and title it at the top MY GREATNESS! Begin to write out the great things about your life in the current state and moment. Do not edit, just write whatever flows from your mind. It may not be easy at first, but as it starts to flow out of you onto the paper it will come.

Sound simple? It is…

Remember SIMPLE does not mean EASY. If it did everyone would be doing this….

So go ahead and start doing it today, right now!

Wisdom Moment #19
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 115]

The Power of Now is The Essence of Bliss
When you live in the now, versus in the what isn’t yet, you give yourself a POWER that few people are even aware exists.

So in higher evolution we say, “What is, is, and what isn’t, isn’t!”

From now on people CAN flatter you and pat you on the back. However, this will hold very little weight for you because in the end, from now on, you water yourself.

You are self contained. You are a law unto self and your I CAN attitude now gives you an I AM demeanor which stems from your own self affirming reality and feeling of “I HAVE.”

You no longer live in the past or even the future.

Wisdom Moment #19 Thoughts
Do you have the I CAN and I AM Attitude of a true leader? There is a power in living in the attitude of I CAN and I AM that most people do not understand or believe of themselves capable to live. When you move into the state of BE… and shift to the attitude of I CAN and I AM… your life will start to FLOW with EASE!

Wisdom Moment #19 Action
Are you ready for this. Today I challenge you to bury the Word I CAN’T and proclaim the life giving bliss of living in an attitude of I CAN.
Take a picture of it, post it in your house, by your desk, in places that will remind you of what you have done and how you have now chosen to live.

Here is mine…

Many others have done this too. Check it out HERE!

Sound simple? It is… Bury Your I CAN’T Today!

Wisdom Moment #18
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 114]

Why Quitters Fail To Stick It Out

People who live by the PHILOSOPHY of what isn’t here yet is more important that WHAT they have now, and who live a life in the thrill of what could be, usually give up and quit. I beg you to re-read that again. Serious. Read that again.

That’s because the frustration of competing against yourself becomes too harsh and the ego will then TRICK YOU into believing that NOT to HAVE (whatever your goal is) is easier and less stressful than making your goal come alive.

      All because most people put a
      higher value on what
      ISN’T versus on what “is” right now.

This is why people complain. They boo-hoo because they do not appreciate “what is.” They complain because they do not appreciate what they already have. So they complain because they honor only the F-U-T-U-R-E and not what is already in their hands.

Wow! What a revelation!

Hey? Is our house big enough honey? No, we need a bigger house. But honey, our house is already huge! “No” she says because she always puts a higher value on what IS NOT HERE than on what is. And this is why 82% of society is never satisfied.

Because it’s never good enough. Because they put a higher value on what COULD BE than on what is in their hands. Therefore almost no matter what, they never FEEL successful or like a winner.

Wisdom Moment #18 Thoughts
Most people live there lives somewhere in their past, or in their future and some bounce back and fourth between the two of them. A person who lives their life in the past usually lives a life of regret of the current moment and lack of hope for the future. On the other side of things, a person who lives their lives in the future are never satisfied with their current reality and are hoping and wishing the future will be better. Those who live in both just flip flop back and fourth between them. How is this fulfilling the most important time in your life. The gift of the present moment? There is a reason it is called ‘present’, since that is where all of your true gifts lie.

Wisdom Moment #18 Action
To shift yourself from your past and future living here is the most powerful action step that has helped me and can help you too…

Create a gratitude journal. Grab yourself a nice book with a solid cover and label it Gratitude for The Gift’s of Today. Each day, date the page and write in 5 things that you are grateful for that day. If at first you can’t think of 5, write as many as you can and try for more the next day. The best time of the day to do this would be right before you drift off to sleep. That way these thoughts are the last you have before you sleep. What to stretch yourself even further, trying making your daily list to not include anything that you have already been recorded as being grateful for in the past. POWERFUL STUFF!

Now go and get started with this for the next 28 days… and watch as your life will transform into the gift of the present moment.

Many blessing to you and your success in becoming the I AM you where BORN TO BE!

The GREAT Edward here,

Welcome to Wisdom In A Moment.

This series is collection of readings, writings, thoughts, and actions that will only take a moment and will renew your mind!

This installment was inspired by my good friend and Fellow MAN GIANT Mr. Bruce W Barnes!

He emailed me earlier today reminding me about Pg 29 in the book Disciplines of Doership and asked me to share with him my top five governing philosophies.

So I decided to share my philosophies and that page with everyone here today as a gift for the new year 2011.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Bruce for your inspiration and encouragement. You ROCK!

Wisdom Moment #17
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 29]

What Makes a Hero? A Philosophy He’d Die For!
Life philosophies are the foundational “rules” that your character is based upon. It’s what you stand for. It’s what you’d die for and if you do not have a governing philosophy, there are boatloads of people who would gladly be into selling you theirs. The game is to be the influence. Not the influenced. The game is to be the game itself; not the pawn. Begin to live a life where upon your WORD is LAW.

A life philosophy is your “map” and actually teaches your boddy — and nervous system — to submit to a will power designed by each of us individually. Think of them as tiny little mental agreements that we all live to prove.

It’s easy to see that most men can easily tell you who won the big ball game last night. However, if we ask those same men to list their top five governing philosophies — of their own lives — that they can prove are responsible for their success in life, well guess what? They can’t.

What most men can do though, is tell us the reasons that they all decided not to become free and they can all list excuse after excuse, WHY NOT! Still the same though, most men still can’t even give us at least three “I CAN BECAUSE” philosophical anecdotes that governed and forecasted their successful home runs in the first place. I mean seriously. Why is that?

That’s like asking a world champion basketball coach to tell you his plan of attack and at best all he can say is, “Uh, the game is to hit baskets!” Most guys shout, “My philosophy is to get good benefits!” And wonder why they’re always broke.

Wisdom Moment #17 Thoughts
We all need to have governing philosophies for our lives. If we don’t have our own, we will inherit them from other people and circumstances around us.
By doing that we move away from our I AM and far from who we were born to BE.

Wisdom Moment #17 Action
For the final Wisdom in A Moment of 2010, as we move towards a new year in 2011, I suggest taking the time this week to write down your governing philosophies.
Regardless of whether you are living them today or not put them down. As you move through 2011 meditate on them, ponder them, share them with others and see opportunities for the actions that will make them part of who you are show up. If you have evidence that you are living them, that’s great! Put that down too.

Share your top five governing philosophies in the comments below. I would love to hear them.

Here are mine:
1. What you speak about comes about.
Evidence: Twice in my life I have spoken my intentions and dreams into reality.
2. If you help enough other people get what they want you will get what you want.
Evidence: The platform, community and movement of Share Your DREAM Friday and Live Your DREAM Monday.
3. Love people, use money.
Evidence: I spend my time loving people first, and the money I need to support them and my mission shows up as needed.
4. You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.
Evidence: I started blogging in January 2010 with no idea what I was doing and today I just posted my 111th blog post, this one that you are reading right now.
5. Failure is the only option on the path to success. Defeat is not an option.
Evidence: I have had many ‘failures’ and set backs on my journey towards my dreams. In all cases I chose to look at the opportunity for growth and abundance in them and continued on.

Many blessing to you and your success in becoming the I AM you where BORN TO BE!

Are you ready to make 2011 your best year yet?

Wisdom Moment #16
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 52]

Society Will Always Applaud The L-E-A-S-T of You!

Another reason everyone needs a better life philosophy is because without one, society will endorse the LEAST in you if you don’t take a stand. Society as a whole wants us to be small. That way they can earn more money on our debt.

Society could give a rip if you rise or sink and in fact, if you try to become large and free this is what you will hear, because society wants to endorse the least of your better. Go test my theory. Tell your family and friends of your dreams. Tell them that you feel TEN feet tall and bullet proof. Tell them that you are tired of being a wimp candy cane loose shoe and that you are going for $30,000 per month. I did… and they slaughtered me for it!

Go tell “them” that you’re done being a pawn in another person’s game and how from now on you are a “rock” and a LAW unto SELF.

Wisdom Moment #16 Thoughts
What you think about comes about. You are what you truly believe about yourself. Not what you do when people are around and looking, but what you do and believe of yourself when no one else is around. Your true thoughts of who you are. Want to change your life? Simple… Change what you believe about yourself!

Wisdom Moment #16 Action
For some of us, changing what we believe about ourselves may not be easy.
Here are a couple of things that can help:

1. Talk to yourself in the mirror! You can do this in your bathroom. Go lock the door and stand staring at yourself. Give yourself a salute and say… HEY BUDDY, YOUR AWESOME! I AM TEN FEET TALL AN BULLET PROOF! I WILL NOT BE DENIED THE GREATNESS THAT I DESERVE IN THIS LIFE. I AM GREAT! You can also do this in our car when stopped at a stop light. Just pull down the visor and open the mirror.

2. Write your life philosophies for the live you WANT to live. Put them on a credit card size piece of paper. Get it laminated and put it in your wallet or purse. Read them everyday. At least once when you wake up and once before you go to bed. Pull it out when you are waiting in line at the grocery store, the bank, or the post office. What you keep at the top of your mind will become who you will prove yourself to be.

Try these for 28 days and watch your life change.

Sound simple? It is… Start applying this Wisdom in your Life TODAY and see it transform.

Wisdom Moment #15
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 116]

Learn To Be “Un-Consciously Competent”

“Mind, No Mind” means that you are UNCONSCIOUSLY conscious. It means that you ….. “just are.”

It means that you are being just (is) without the thought of what Mrs. Harrison next door might say.

It’s the discipline of love. Your own.

You no longer complain because to do so adds DOUBT into others and from now on you are elated… about “what is” meaning you are now simply, and totally, just in the MOMENT!

People succumb to work they can’t stand because they either live in the shame of the PAST or they FEAR the future. As in “I might lose” or “I might be poor, so I better stay where I am.”

So they grovel for crumbs, instead of crowns, and as such they dissipate love and decide to labor into regret.

Most people place more TRUST in what [is not] rather than on what is. That’s why so many people are so screwed up, so unhappy, so confused and so depressed.

The game of life is this: What is, is, and what isn’t, isn’t and what IS-NOT no longer has any control over you.

Without this gift to yourself, you will always remain in work that doesn’t love you back, do small little menial work and associate with small thinkers who don’t think very much of you.

Wisdom Moment #15 Thoughts
Living life in FLOW meaning living just as you are, You BEING You.
When journey through life in a way that transcends EGO and CIRCUMSTANCE you come to a STATE of BE.

Wisdom Moment #15 Action
Here are some actions that can help you move from where you are to where you BE:
1) Meditation – Did you know that you can think about your thinking? This is the most powerful things that separates us as humans from the animals
Start thinking about your thinking and the fruit that it is creating ( or not ) in your life.
2) Affirmations – Once you have mastered the thinking about your thinking, start to replace the things that are not serving you, with things that are.
3) Unconscious Consciousness – Once you do 1 and 2 continuously within your life you will hit the state of unconscious consciousness, a state of BE.

Try this for 28 days and watch your life change.

Sound simple? It is… Start applying this Wisdom in your Life TODAY and see it transform.

Wisdom Moment #14
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 62]

When You Don’t Know You Can’t… YOU CAN!

Does slinging pizza pies make you happy? Great, then you are free. Are you a cop or do you nurse people back to health and you love it? Guess what? If that sounds anything like you then you are one in fifty and you are free! And Joe salutes you. That’s the mark.

Free to be who you said you would be BEFORE you decided to do work that would be your life’s assignment.

Here’s the question: how come I can go to a Kid-Rock or Toby Keith concert or watch “Everyone Loves Raymond” on TV, how come I see total ecstasy written all over their faces, and yet how come we as a people were brainwashed to believe that can only happen to the famous? Why is that? Does that seem fair?

So the rules are as follows:

When you aren’t aware that you can, you don’t.

When you don’t know that you can, you can’t.

However, if you don’t know you can’t, you can!

Well this straight shooter said that was a LIE and this Warrior of Can-Do decided to live a truth, not a lie. The lie is living small within a society that gets excited by valuing the LEAST in you.

The most expensive thing on earth is other people’s opinion of you because it water’s down your wick. Think about it.

Wisdom Moment #14 Thoughts
We are all born with a purpose in our lives.
There are no extra people on this great planet called earth.
Have you found your purpose? Are you living it today? Being who you were born to BE?

Wisdom Moment #14 Action
Take some time, sit down, turn off the distractions around you and consider the dreams you had for your life when you were a kid.
To be a fireman, police man, nurse, doctor, lawyer… you name it. What was it?
Reflect on those ideas, write them down. Are they still dreams that you have in your head today?
Maybe just covered over by the life you have lived so far. If so start to work on them. Just 15 minutes a day, 1/2 an hour even.
And watch how they will come to be in your life.

Sound simple? It is… Start applying this Wisdom in your Life TODAY and see it transform.

Wisdom Moment #13
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 121]

You Can’t Make a Difference Until They Remember You

If you study the Sparrow you can quickly learn the hidden working order of a Bruce Springsteen, a Tom Hanks or a Neil Young. You can spot this character trait of people with high influence, that you can begin to imitate immediately. Use this:

Your “Difference” is Your Gold

The beauty of a Sparrow is that it’s just being a Sparrow and nothing else. All that bird is, is a lump of feathers and some tiny twigs (bones) that are no bigger than tooth-picks. Then once and a while it whispers out-loud, “tweet-tweet.”

What’s so cool about BIRDS is that they don’t add or subtract anything more to or from themselves except for what they were born to be. You’ve never seen a bird laying on its side under a tree doing “oh poor me” and you never will. Plus, you’ll never see an eagle “doing” procrastination or flying close to the ground because it wasn’t born to. An eagle soars HIGH, not low.

JFK and Ali were just being brutally AUTHENTIC and didn’t let fear, embarrassment or OTHER people stop them from being their most complete and authentic natural selves. It takes guts to be someone of influence. Even more guts to lose the “act.”

It takes character to STAND OUT and let it all hang out, no matter what, and only because you believe that NOT to is being totally unfaithful to yourself. FREEDOM is about being free to think and to BE whoever you want to be. It’s a higher level than being transparent. People will love to like you.

Wisdom Moment #13 Thoughts
Are you really being YOU in all that you do?
The only thing to BE in this life is yourself, everyone else is taken.
Live your life as You were Born to BE in the blessing and gift of every moment of each day.

Wisdom Moment #13 Action
If you have not been you, the one you were born to be in this life, you can choose to start to live that way today.
One of the greatest gifts we have as people is the gift to choose. We choose everything in our lives.
Go and choose to BE YOU Today. Right Now!

Wisdom Moment #12
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 107]

The Attraction Secret of Environment

Environment predicts and forecasts
what you will do,
what you will BUY,
who you will be
and who you will NOT be.
The fact is,
if you live within a community that drives fancy cars,
good bad or indifferent,
you will,
by association,
feel compelled to go lease a car of equal or better value.
On the other hand,
people who live in squalor
all AGREE that life sucks.
Plus most tend to have messy homes
(sorry, but truth is truth)
and they tear up their credit cards
and shout, “MONEY stinks
and I refuse to have any credit
or build up more for the future.”
Sounds ridiculous right?
And yet this is 200% how it works.
How do I know?
Because I spent a decade delivering
their FOOD that’s how!
Look,
WHAT YOU STARE at
and who you trade words
and energy with,
you become just like.

Your environment tells your body
and central nervous system
what “temperature” it is (where you are)
and tells you how to dress,
how to act
and tells your subconscious mind
how valuable you are.

Wisdom Moment #12 Thoughts
Look around. What does your current environment look like?
Is it a reflection of your current reality and life?

Wisdom Moment #12 Action
Here are the action steps that you can take right now to bring out the change your environment and your life:
1) Clean your car and keep it clean.
2) Make your bed.
3) Clean your office.

Wisdom Moment #11
From the Book Disciplines of Doership by Joe Schroeder

[pg. 100]

Anyone Can Be a “Genius” and Many Are

What is a “Genius”
other than a mere mortal
who was conspicuously AWARE
of infinity (all possibility)
being within them
and a person who lives
within the thinking
of their Creator.

Therefore, if you add it up,
people like Oprah and Bob Dylan
were simply co-conspirators
with the same energy
that built the solar system.
Something called “God.”
Now you may argue that.

But not me.
I decided to USE that versus arguing it.
Plus, if you think about it,
isn’t an artist just someone
who becomes the bridge
between man and God?
How else can you explain
Wayne Dyer or a TV cook Bobby Flay?
How can certain people bring us such amazing things?
How did Twain write such incredible stories?
HOW?

My guess is that “artists” are simply people,
like you and me,
who took a step further
and recognized their inner world
of inspiration who then
presented to us what they found.
Look at Galileo,
Socrates,
or comedian Steve Martin.
Somehow these guys
“caught” their ideas
out of thin air
and their magic was
that they believed
in those hunches
— enough —
to show them to everyone else.

Most people make the mistake
to believe that this is a power
only reserved for
Columbus and Jim Carey
and not for everyone.

Wisdom Moment #11 Thoughts
We are all created Genius. It is just up to us whether we let it shine through in our lives or not.
I believe that there are no extra people on the earth and we are all here for a reason, purpose, and with our own “Genius” to offer.
What are you going to do to let out your Inner “Genius”?

Wisdom Moment #11 Action
Here are the action steps that you can take right now to bring out the “Genius” in you:
1) Become hypnotized and hyper aware of your own potential.
2) Allow your own “work” becomes hypnotic for other people to watch!
3) Become your own attraction. So that other people are spellbound BY you!
