I have so many things to say to you but hey let’s take it one step at a time, shall we?
As you may already know I’ve been listening to seminars for a great amount of time now and It has changed the way I see life. There is not a single day that I go without listening to at least 3 or 4 seminars. Sometimes I listen to the same seminar multiple times and every single time I hear a different speech.
Bob Proctor has been reading the same book (Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill) everyday for over 40 years (since he was 26 years old) and he said “when you read or listen to something good for the second or third time, you don’t discover something in it that was not there before, you discover something that was not in you before.”
It has been proven scientifically that the best way to shift paradigm or condition the brain is through repetition.
While listening to Tony Robbins give an another amazing speech on personal growth and success, I heard something that stroke a huge cord in me.
He said, in my words : “Success without fulfillment is the worst. Robin Williams accomplished everything he wanted to accomplish in life. He won academies. He had amazing children. He had wonderful fame. He did comedy. He directed and starred in movies. He had it all, it seems. He had love, family, friends, success and fame. He made millions of people laugh. Still, he hanged himself and had a terrible drug addiction. Why? Because despite what we could see, Robin Williams felt terribly alone. He made everyone happy but himself. Not making yourself happy is the ultimate failure.”
Robin Williams once said himself “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone.”
I was speechless after this. My jaw dropped wide opened. Then my head started spinning with thoughts coming from every little corner of my mind. I had a moment of epiphany.
So what is success and happiness if it’s not fame, money, family and friends? You would think that’s all it takes, right? I mean being surrounded by family and friends should be enough to make someone happy. But it seems a lot of people feel lonely in a crowd.
What’s going on?
I couldn’t find an answer for hours before deciding to write this post. I almost threw away the draft but then after meditating on the subject, something came.
Happiness truly is an inside job.
Nothing external to ourselves can fulfill us.
If you think there is something missing inside you, not a single thing in the world can complete you.
If you feel empty, no matter how much water gets poured in your cup, you will remain void.
So what can fulfill us anyway? What works?
Turns out gratefulness works.
I’m not assuming that Robin Williams was ungrateful since I did not know him personally.
However, grateful people seem to be the happiest individuals on the planet. There are people living in the poorest parts of the world and have no worries at all. Their soul is at peace. They are one with the Universe.
They have understood that life is a divine gift. If you don’t learn to appreciate it, nothing and no one can help you.
There is divinity even in the greatest of chaos.
By the way, apparently Robin Williams had a very bad case of dementia. Do you know what causes premature dementia kids? Cocaine. Stay away. Robin Williams was a cocaine addict, in and out.
Drugs, alcohol, money, fame, sex and relationships will never fill you up.
All the answers you look for are within.
Fill yourself up first. Then be grateful for all the extras.
The high road.
Love yourself. I can’t fucking stress it enough.
You are worthy.
What do you want me to say more? I love you?
Okay. I love you mi amor.
Hugging you warmly all over.
Too much? Well, this is my blog.
I can hug you and tell you I love you if I want to.
Infinite love, health, healing, wealth, success, happiness, awareness, peace and wisdom your way
