The 'Do Nothing' Approach To Problem Solving


If you have a  problem of any kind and you have done everything you know to do to make it disappear from your life and still the problem persists, DO NOTHING. Let me explain.

Putting time and energy into a problem you cannot solve allows it to grow in strength and power over you until you are completely powerless to do anything about the problem.

Often times, with a chronic problem, you are resisting it and fighting with it which makes it persist rather than disappear from your life.  After you have done everything you know to do to make a chronic problem disappear from your life, if you do nothing, one of the following three things will happen to the problem.  

NUMBER 1. The problem will go POOF and disappears from your life for no logical reason you can explain. One day you have the problem and the next day you are aware that the problem is no longer in your life.  

NUMBER 2. In doing nothing to solve your problem, the mind relaxes and when you least expect it, the answer to your problem spontaneously appear in your mind, seemingly out of thin air. And when the answer does appear, even before you apply the answer, you will know with absolutely certainty the answer will solve the problem for you.  (This happens to me a lot.)

NUMBER 3. During the time you are doing nothing to solve your problem a person will show up in your life, unexpectedly, who will solve your problem for you.

To have any one of these three 'problems solving solutions' show up in your life, all you have to do is keep your focus on thoughts and actions that make you feel good to be you.

The Law of Prosperity is Simple (Simply Explained)

.
The law of prosperity is simple. As long as you focus your attention, time or energy on what you don't have (ex: more money), you will never have more money.   REPEAT THAT SENTENCE 10,000 TIMES BEFORE YOU CONTINUE TO READ THIS ARTICLE.  The law of prosperity is simple. As long as you focus your attention, time or energy on what you don't have (ex: more money), you will never have more money.  The law of prosperity is simple. As long as you focus your attention, time or energy on what you don't have (ex: more money), you will never have more money. 

Thinking about what you don't have (ex: more money) as a way of having it is both foolish and futile because focusing on what you don't have keeps you attracting more of what you don't have, which means you keep attracting less and less money until you have no money at all.


The law of prosperity works perfectly all the time. The trick is focusing your attention exclusively on your DO WANTS and paying no attention at all to your don't wants, no attention at all....


The moment you are tempted to focus on what you don't have, use it as an ALERT signal to focus on what you DO want and on what you DO have because whatever you focus your attention on (good or bad) you attract more of the same.  It is the law and this law, like gravity, works every time without fail. 


Remember this, anytime you feel bad, that means your attention is focused on something you don't want rather than what you do want.  It is not possible to feel bad when you are focused on what you DO WANT and DO HAVE..... Focusing on what you don't want and don't have is a habit of thought that is as deadly for you as is the habit of smoking cigarettes and it is just as tenacious.


GO COLD TURKEY:   Giving up focusing your attention on what you don't have and don't want..... NOW.


FOCUS EXCLUSIVELY ON: What You DO WANT and DO HAVE.....and notice the difference in how you feel when you are focused on DO WANTS AND DO HAVES...  


If you have questions about attracting your prosperity to you with effortless ease, leave me comments and I will answer your questions for you until I have answered your questions to your complete and total satisfaction thus ALLOWING you to attract prosperity into your life too. - Frederick Zappone

Got Money Issues? Tony Robbins Quote is for you...

.
“The simple reason that most people fail financially is not because of the lack of a plan, it’s not because of good advice, it’s not even because of a lack of capital. It is for one reason—they attach more pain to the idea of having money, than NOT having it.” - Tony Robbins 

If you agree with Tony Robbins quote about money, leave a comment about your money issue and I will have a conversation with you to resolve those issues...

You see, whether you are aware of it or not, you have RULES about what you will and won't do for money.. and if you don't know what your rules are, you will never have the money you want.

Your 'Money Rules' were programmed into your mind during your growing up years and currently live in your subconscious mind.  This discussion will help you become conscious of the money rules you have that are stopping you from having the money you want and richly deserve. Leave a comment to start the discussion

Victim Of My Thoughts NO MORE!

Self-Forgiveness Sets Me Free From The Mistakes I Make

.
I don't know about you but I can be very hard on myself. You see I have high standards for myself, ridiculously high. I am not sure when I got my standards (performance expectations) or from whom but my self-imposed standards of excellence have caused me to suffer needlessly from time to time... And since I don't like suffering, I discovered forgiving myself for not meeting my high standards releases me from any penalty or punishment (real or imagined) when I don't reach them.. 

Forgive means to: 1. grant pardon for an offense ; to absolve; to set free from punishment. 2. to cease to feel resentment against yourself or others. When I forgive myself I am set free to create what I want rather than being filled with feelings of  guilt, resentment, anger,  anxiety, fear or depression. The unwillingness to forgive myself for my mistakes makes 'nasty feelings' stick to me like SUPER GLUE.  And since I don't like feeling negative, forgiving myself for not meeting my own high standards makes me feel great.

If you have ridiculously high standards for yourself, like I do, then you know that no matter what you do, your best is never good enough... And since that is true for me, I forgive myself for not measuring up. I forgive myself for not being as good as other folks. I forgive myself that my best isn't good enough for other people and in forgiving myself, I accept my best is good enough. it's good enough for me..

Removing the pain from Painful Thoughts (Short Article)

.. .
Thoughts can only make you feel bad as long as you agree with them. Your agreement with a thought is what gives the thought the power to hurt you. Nothing else, just your agreement. 

If you, unwittingly, agree with a negative thought that randomly passes through your mind, the moment you do, you feel the pain. Withdraw your agreement from a negative thought and the pain goes away...

The purpose of the pain associated with a negative thought is to WAKE YOU UP so you will become CONSCIOUS of the negative thought you are thinking that is causing you pain in the first place. Once that happens, you can then make the conscious decision to quit thinking the negative thought that's producing pain in you and replace it with a thought that puts you back into that feeling good state of mind again.

Your Power is Found in Speaking 'Your' Truth.

.
I'm not a somebody nor am I a nobody.  I'm simply the most magnificent, loving and powerful me I can be. The friends I trust, above all the rest, are my very own thoughts except those times with my thoughts aren't friendly toward me at all.  

Thank God those times of unfriendly thoughts are few and far between. Most of my thoughts, since they are my thoughts, treat me with the love, compassion, dignity and respect I deserve.

I am not famous or well known, I am not a celebrity or some research scientist who discovered a cure for cancer, I am simply me and all I have to offer the world is my truth. It is my truth that makes me unique differently from all the rest. It is my truth that keeps me in a 'feeling good state of mind' when the truth of others could confuse me and cause me pain. It is my truth that has allowed me to grow stronger in becoming the person I have always wanted to be.  It is my truth and the thinking, speaking and writing about it that makes me magnificent and powerful in my own special way.  For what makes us all powerful in our own right is our truth, our unique way of looking at the world and everybody and everything in it and then sharing our truth with others from our hearts.

I'm responsible for everything that happens to me, EVERYTHING (Short Article)

.
I am responsible for everything that happens to me in my life with nothing left out. I am responsible for every action I take. I am responsible for every thought I think and every feeling I feel. I am responsible for every situation, circumstance and event that happens to me. Why? Because that makes me a POWERFUL person. On the other hand, blaming myself or others weakens me and takes power away from me. Once I allow a person or situation to take power away from me, I lose my ability to correct the wrongs done to me in an effective, efficient, healthy and responsible manner. - Frederick Zappone

The Best 'Drunk' Story I ever heard.

 .
A man got really drunk one night in his local bar. The barman refused to serve him any more alcohol and told him he should be heading home. The man thought this was a good idea so he stood up to leave but fell over. He tried to stand up again but fell over again. He thought if only he could get outside and get some fresh air he'd be okay. So he crawled outside then tried to stand up and fell over again. In the end, after falling over several more times, he decided to crawl home. 

When he got back to his house he pulled himself up using the door handle but as soon as he let go he fell over again. He had to crawl up the stairs and managed to fall over onto the bed and fell asleep. When he finally woke up the next morning his wife asked him what he was doing at the bar last night. He denied he was there but she said, "I know you were there because the bartender just called to say you forgot your wheelchair again...."

Making Your Impossible Thing Possible (Short Article)

 .
I create powerful intentions for people that come true. 

My intention today is for each of you to get in touch with what makes you the happiest and fills you with the greatest joy. Once you know what that is, let that be the magnetic pole around which you organize everything you think, say and do in your life.

What brings you the greatest happiness and joy in your life?

Is it music, singing, dancing, art, baking, cooking, acting, traveling? Whatever it is that makes you happy, focus more of your time on that because whatever you focus your attention on, you attract more of the same into your life. It is the law.

People's Addiction to Don't Wants - Insight

.
People focusing on what they have that they don't want doesn't change 'what is,' so why do people continue to to focus on what they don't want. The answer is this:

Secret Code of Truly Powerful People - 15 Things They Do

The Secrets of Truly Powerful People
Copyrighted 2012 By Frederick Zappone


I am a powerful person and I know you are too.  You are so powerful that you have the power to make yourself feel totally powerless from time to time.  How powerful is that?  While you may feel powerless, from time to time, that doesn't mean you are powerless. It is only a feeling that will change the moment you change your thoughts. Listed below is fifteen things powerful people do that makes them powerful.

1. They have learned to love everything and everyone including their fears.

2. They accept everything and everyone including accepting they don't like to accept things. Accepting 'what is' sets them free to create what will be.

3. They forgive always and in all ways, quickly, so they can let go and move on.

4. They trust everything and everyone include trusting their doubts.

5. They don't compete with others, They compliment and complete others.

6. They praise others a lot because it benefits them the  most.

7. They see all problems, no exceptions, as stepping stones, not stumbling blocks

8.  They  give without end to others because it open the hearts of others to give back to them..

9. They feel abundance always because 'giving' creates that feeling inside of them.

10. They are not one bit realistic, they dream all the time because it feels good to them.

11. They extend kindness to others all the time as a way of receiving kindness back.

12. They know being gratitude for what they have attracts more to them to be grateful for.

13.  They live in the present moment.  They only look into the future long enough to  see what it is they  can do now to make sure their future turns out exactly the  way they want it to. And they leave the past where it belongs, in the past.

14. They are masters at turning all negatives into positives.  Just as you can't have a back of a hand without a front, you can't have a negative without a positive. They learned how to look at all negatives from the positive side of them. Powerful people see all negatives as opportunities or benevolent teachers in disguise who have come to teach them lessons in self-love.

15. Powerful people are responsible for every single thing that happens to them and when things go, wrong, as they sometimes do, they blame no one, not  even  themselves. This makes it easy for them to turn the things that go wrong in their life into things that work in their favor rather than against them.

Tribute to Mom's Everywhere.

.
I came sliding out of a dark tunnel and I looked up or I should say looked down because I was hanging upside down looking into the eyes of this GIGANTIC GODDESS that the doctor said was my mom..

I was thrilled and scared to have this goddess as my mom, She was so huge and I was so small but the first time she held me lovingly in her arms I knew I was loved and I was safe in a new world yet unknown to me.

My mom was a goddess in my life for over 90 years, she passed away two years ago this May.  She was perfect in my eyes including the imperfections she had that helped me grow strong in the places where she was weak.  She was my mother and she taught me the most important thing in life, how to respect all women, no matter what and I do.

Because of my mom, I am a lover of women. I love their energy and what they add to my personality. Because I respect and care for them, the women in my life have made me stronger and healthier than most men I know. However before that happened, I had to acknowledge that my mom was the SOURCE of my life instead of fighting and arguing with her all the time. Once I acknowledged that she SOURCED my life, we developed a relationship of equality that has allowed me to respect and love all women regardless of their age, shape or size.  In my eyes, all women are eternally beautiful for their real beauty is found in their heart, mind and eyes.  Their hearts sing the sweets songs of a beautiful life even when life is hard. Their mind creates and nurtures all things that come their way and in their eyes you can see a piece of heaven itself and that's why I fall in love with all the women I meet.

Happy Mother's Day Mom,






















I Love and Miss You Mom,

Frederick

Why Feel Bad?


To my knowledge feeling bad has never made something good happen. It has however created more bad in the world. Feeling bad has led people to abuse, kill and murder other people. Feeling bad has caused people to go to war against other people. Feeling bad has caused people to molest and rape other people. Feeling bad has caused people to do drugs, overeat and drink themselves to death. Feeling bad has caused people to commit suicide.  Feeling bad has caused people to take pills to sedate their bad feelings only to find out, later on, the pills came with harmful side effects that made them feel worse.

Why feel bad when it is possible to feel good regardless of the negative people and circumstances surrounding you. Not only that, the better you feel, the better your circumstances will become and the more positive the negative people around you will become.

Tribute to Chickens ( A story that will touch your soul)

.
Gin, is a friend of mine... She raises chickens and sells the eggs. She loves chickens. 
She loves all living things, small and large, and no one can tell this moving story 
about chickens better than she can. - Frederick Zappone

I bought some older birds about two years ago. I didn't know how old they were when I got them. But, I still felt compelled to get them... Well, evidently they were quite old, and the chicken farmer saw me coming. :)

I do believe all happens for the greater good, so the opportunity to be with these chickens gave me time to be with some really good layer birds and they taught me what they wanted and needed; making me a much better Chicken Mommy for future birds.

Well, my morning was greeted with an old hen who's been 'passing away' for the last week. This morning, she was sitting on the floor of the coop, leaning over. Her journey here is almost over. 



While they are making the transition, I talk to them daily, petting them, and reassure them that they always have a home here. I make sure to thank them for feeding our family and tell them, "it's OK to go".

Do I cry? Oh yes; every time... Even more so when another of their coop mates sit along side of them as they go; which they frequently do. I've never had any of my birds peck at another who's on the way out. Usually, they just go sit with them or hang around close by.

I lifted the passing hen and put her in the "safe spot". Others can come see her, but she's at least out of the walking paths......Life is odd... It is beautiful..  - Gin

Your Agreements With Your Thoughts

.
 .
Every time you AGREE with a Thought, 
you give that thought power over you.

 


















The moment you agree with the thought 'I can't do it,' you can't.
The moment you agree with the thought 'I can't afford it,' you can't.
The moment you agree with the thought 'I'll never have plenty of money,' you never will.
The moment you agree with the thought 'I will never find someone to love me,' you won't.
The moment you agree with the thought' I am not going to get better,' you won't.
The moment you agree with the thought' I am going to die,' you will.

If you are going to agree with thoughts, agree with thoughts that give you
your power back, thoughts that make you feel good about being you.

A STATEMENT OF 'SELF' POWER

I understand that when I agree with thoughts that make me feel negative, I end up feeling hopeless and defeated and
lose touch with my 'incredible, unlimited power'  to create the life I want, my way...
I no longer agree with thoughts that makes me feel negative in any way. I withdraw all of my power from those types of thoughts beginning, right NOW.....

Baby Love...



The love you feel for a child is the love God feels for you. A baby comes into this world without a thing and because the baby is so full of love, we want to give it everything. When you can love yourself without having a thing, you will naturally and effortlessly attract everything.

Every day I wake up EXCITED as a Kid on Christmas Morning, you can too.




I wasn't always this way but today I am one of the few adults I know who wakes up every morning with the enthusiasm and excitement of a kid on Christmas morning. 

I attribute that to the fact that I forgive myself daily for thoughts and feelings I experience that are, temporarily, on automatic pilot outside my conscious control. Those thoughts and feelings either undermine my health and happiness or they make me feel bad. 

Forgiveness is the healthy alternative to resisting negative thoughts and feelings. When you resist those kind of thoughts and feelings they grow in strength and power over you. When you forgive yourself for having negative thoughts and feelings, they lose their strength and power to interfere with your feeling good state of mind.


My Forgiveness list for May 01, 2012

My forgiveness list changes daily depending on what is going on in my life. In all cases, forgiving myself is one way I let go of thoughts and feelings that are weighing me down.. This is an excerpt from my forgiveness list for today.

I forgive myself for doubting my ability to make my dreams come true.
I forgive myself for not trusting my ability to attract to myself the things I want.
I forgive myself for caring whether people read my blog or not.
I forgive myself for blaming myself for things that are outside my control.
I forgive myself for thinking the worst rather than the best about myself.
I forgive myself for being impatient in regards to the things I want.
I forgive myself for making intentions then countering my intentions with fear thoughts.

These are just a few of the things I have forgiven myself for today.

What do you need to forgive yourself for today so you can let go, move on and feel the ENERGY of Excited living return to your body?
