I’m sure I’ll touch on this on tomorrow nights podcast. But I wanted to get started now because I feel as though I just had a pretty major breakthrough.
I’m a huge believer in the universe. You know, whatever you put out into the world will come back to you tenfold. That’s why I’ve been hurting so much for the past couple of years as my disillusionment for the self-help/motivational industry grew stronger each and every day.
I lived in that world every second of every day for, hold on, let me do the math - 38 years. There were just a handful of people who spoke to me. Dr. Wayne Dyer and Richard Bach lit my path, and what a path it was. They gave me strength and a plan. You can imagine how I felt to have both of them on my podcast. Getting them on the show wasn’t a shock to me. It’s the way my life was supposed to happen. The universe always had my back and I stood tall knowing that was the case.
Then the industry blew up. Other brilliant minds and leaders jumped in to lend their voice to a now congested landscape. Some of these people were great. Most seemed to be frauds. They were filled with bad energy, a lazy message and over the top sleazy sales techniques.
I found myself dipping out. Thinking that I had enough knowledge to carry me to the finish line, I gave up on learning anything new. In doing so my life started to get smaller and my victories were few and far between.
About a year ago I decided to call out these assholes who were making a great living in a what I believed to be a dying industry filled with “life coaches” and snake oil salesmen.
In some of my past podcasts and postings you can actually hear my bitter voice calling them out by name. I thought that THIS is what the industry needs. A shock-jock style attack on these imposters. This would be my way back into a world that I love and trust so much. And that was my plan until tonight.
What kind of ego do I have to think I can bring down an entire genre? The only thing that happened was me becoming an angry little man who never made his name in a field that I love so much.
I’ve been thinking about it a lot. Praying and meditating for an answer. Hoping for peace of mind. Needing for the ball in my stomach to dissolve.
I’m so happy to announce that I’ve finally heard back from the universe. It said something so loud and so simple (which if often the case).
" Get over yourself Terry. Who the fuck do you think you are telling others what's right for them." Yes. The universe uses salty language to communicate with me. It knows me very well. " Quit wasting energy on other people and focus on yourself and your message. Your experiences and your love for others is 100% genuine. So get to work you bitter fuck."
And so I move forward as I put everything I’ve learned about miracles and how to create them to use.
Thank you for being here.
