  6. 6. IntroductionThis book is in response to the calamity thattook place at Sandy Hook Elementary.This horrid event is what has driven me to speakout and offer a solution to the problem at large.It is not about gun control, the poor mentalillness treatment that is now available oranything negative. It is about standing up andmaking a change.This book is about doing something to make apositive impact in somebody’s life. This book isabout motivating YOU to make a difference.What can you do? What will you do?Here’s a hint: It’s normally not mainstream.“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope fortomorrow. The important thing is not to stopquestioning.” ~Albert Einstein 6
  7. 7. Recognizing the ProblemYou’re not alone. You are 100% right thatwe need change.Many things are broken in today’s world.  People are senselessly getting hurt and dying.  Personal, local, national and global finances are questionable.  There is judgment left and right.  Corruption within government is abundant.  Molestation lies, kept by people in authoritative positions, are becoming exposed.  The Internet has raised question of man-made poisons in our food.  The medical industry is marred with questionable prescriptions. 7
  8. 8.  Schools are no longer safe for our children or us.  We question and fear our neighbors and society as a whole.The problem is we count on other peopleto make the change that we desire to see.It’s as if we are waiting for somebody elseto say that it’s time. Who are we looking tofor that change? The very people,organizations and entities that created theissues we are facing today?That’s crazy. They are the ones thatperpetuated our current situation!Einstein said, “Insanity: doing the samething over and over again and expectingdifferent results.”Isn’t that what we are doing in a sense? Weare expecting other people to make positive 8
  9. 9. changes while it is those very people thatgot us where we are today?It is time to take things into our own hands.It is time we step up for what we believe in.It is time we start taking responsibility forour lives and all that our lives encompass. 9
  10. 10. So, our main problem? Complacency. Weare too comfortable with looking the otherway. We have snuggled up to letting otherpeople think for us and for them to tell uswhat to do, what is right and what is wrong. It’s time to end the brainwashing!We believe there is only black and white.We haven’t looked, or seen the multitude ofcolors that are right there, in plain sight, ifwe just chose to see them.(And by colors – I am implying OPTIONS.)Aren’t you ready to start living for yourselfand the betterment of your family?First we need to get some common excusestaken care of… 10
  11. 11. ExcusesWe tend to fall onto common excuses.  I don’t have time. (Yes you do.)  I don’t have enough money. (You don’t need a lot of money, if any.)  I don’t know how. (Then learn.)  People will laugh/judge/ridicule me. (Who cares?)  I am above that. (No you’re not.)Any explanation of these excuses is a wasteof words.If you want something badly enough, you:  Have time.  Have financial means.  Learn how to make it happen. 11
  12. 12.  Don’t care what others say. (The more you love your path, the less you will care what other people say.)  Realize that you are capable and are willing to do whatever it takes in order to achieve the results you desire.Have you had enough? Are you ready tobust through any false barriers to make achange in your life and to make a positivechange for mankind?If you’ve read this far, you are ready.Congratulations and Thank You. 12
  13. 13. Things are not as they appear.You have been lied to. Those lies haveeither been intentional or accidental; butbecause of who started them, people haveperpetuated them – telling the lies towhoever would listen – and even believingthose lies themselves.Ellen DeGeneres, so eloquenty, summed upa generality of this for all of us. “I think we look at society and we look atevery advertisement that’s out there andeverything that tells us how we’re supposedhow to look, how we’re supposed to liveand how we’re supposed to be instead ofsaying, “Is that how I really feel? Is thatreally what I want to do? Is that reallyhow I want to live?” ~Ellen DeGeneresLet’s expand this to specific topics: 13
  14. 14. Schooling HealthReligion EmploymentPeople Life in generalIn the above, and any other category thatyou can think of, are you living your life, andis your belief system your OWN?Or are you behaving, believing and livingbased on what other people told you wastrue?Really think about this one!Here are some very basic questions to helpyou. 1. Should people go to college? Why? Where’s your proof? 2. Do you take your doctor’s word for gold? Why? Could there be a better way? 14
  15. 15. 3. Do you believe in the Bible? Why? Have you fully researched other religions?4. Why do you have a job? Is it what you love, or is it for the money? Have you searched for employment over being an entrepreneur?5. Do you make general judgments about other people? Why? Have you taken the time to get to know them and their story?6. Food, government, CHANGE, the future, happiness, right and wrong, where you live, what you own… the list is infinite. Why do you believe the way you do about these things? Have you ever questioned authority? Have you ever questioned your beliefs? This is the time to start. 15

  17. 17. The Solution“Be the change that you wish to see in theworld.” ~Mahatma Gandhi 1. What CHANGE do you want to see?It is imperative that you know what youwant. What do you want to see happen inthis world we call home?Mother Teresa had said many times thatshe would not participate in an Anti-Warparade; but if she were to be invited to aPeace Rally – she would definitely go.There is a stark difference in the two. Oneis focused on the negative and the other isfocused on the positive. In the samebreath, one is focused on anger and theother is focused on love.When you decide what you want to “do”,remember to keep it on the positive side. 17
  18. 18. 2. What are you willing to do to make that CHANGE happen?Really think about this. If you care enoughabout this, limitations and time will knowno boundaries. Things that you believedyou were limited by will vanish. The thingsthat you once felt were important to do,you will remove them from your lifebecause you realize they were wastes oftime. While we’re on topic – You will step out of your comfort zone while on this journey of CHANGE. Know that and accept that. (Remember – forget what other people say about you. You are on a quest for good – they are still complaining about the world.) 18
  19. 19. This is only important so you can set yourpriorities. What will help you reach yourgoal of CHANGE and what will keep youfrom reaching it? Take out the things thatwill prevent you from reaching your goal ofCHANGE. 3. Take Action and make that change HAPPEN.This is simply done:  Write down what you want to accomplish.  Write down a date to accomplish by.  Start backwards (at the ultimate goal) and work your way to what you can do right now.  Start on your plan.Seriously. It is that easy. You will learnwhat you need to know along the way. Youwill adjust along the way. Just start. 19

  21. 21. Little ol’ Me?Do you wonder if you can really make aCHANGE in this world? Do you question ifyou have what it takes or if anybody willeven listen to you?The answer to that is YES!There are some people in this world thathave major influence. All they have to do issay something and people are rushing tobuy the product, wear the clothes, or jumpon their thought bandwagon.Guess what. They once were unknown.They once had people laugh at them. Theyonce had doubts about their validity.The key to their success is they persevered.They kept going in the face of adversitybecause they fully believed in whatever itwas that they were going after. 21
  22. 22. You start where you need to start.If I were telling my children this for the firsttime, this is what I would say…There comes a time in life when you are somoved by something that you simplycannot ignore it and you are compelled totake action in some form.Be it a passion you have, something thatyou have seen that excites you at your verysoul, or even an injustice that you havewitnessed and you simply know you cannotstand by and let it continue to happen.You will know when this happens. Youwon’t be able to think of anything else. Youwill feel the emotion so strongly that itdrives you to action. 22
  23. 23. There will be people who will try to get inyour way. Actually, there will probably be alot of people that try to stop you.It is then that you know you are on the righttrack. When people oppose you, shut youout, or try to tear you down, it is at thatpoint that you know you are on tosomething so big and so transformationalthat you must continue no matter what.There will be sacrifices you will need tomake. Some of them may be hard or evenpainful; but when you get to the finaldestination, when you finally accomplishyour goal, those sacrifices will not even beon the radar any more.You don’t need to impress anybody. Theonly person you should worry about makinghappy is you. When you stand up for whatis stirring in your Spirit, you can only go in 23
  24. 24. the right direction. If others oppose you,they will come around – and if they don’t –in the long run they will be in the minority.Start. Start now. The world is waiting onthe people who have the courage to liveauthentically and at a soul level.Take your passion, whether it’s in the arts,business, or anything else and make yourmark. Make your impact. Allow your voiceto be heard; and the only way your voicewill be heard is if you get out there andstart yelling from the rooftops who you are,what you believe in and why other peopleshould care.Make other people talk about you. Makeother people question their beliefs. Forceother people to hear what you’re saying. 24
  25. 25. Don’t think this has to be something that isembarrassing or annoying. You are special.You can do this in your own way.People will hear you even if you whisper;but whisper dramatically. Whisper withpurpose. Whisper from your Spirit.What are you waiting for? Spread yourwings and expose your inner desires.You are on the right track. I promise. 25
  26. 26. Spread the WordPlease share this book.There is this phenomenon called “collectiveconsciousness”. It is what the majority of acertain group of people believe and thinkabout.It can be a group of people as large as acountry or the world, to a group as small asa family, or even small meet-ups of people.This collective consciousness is what formsa nation’s thoughts and beliefs. When wehear of bad things happening, we, as awhole, emit our feelings and beliefs andthey all mesh together into this collectiveconsciousness.This is why whatever we focus on…EXPANDS. If we focus on negative, morenegative happens (as a whole). If we focuson positive, more positives happen. 26
  27. 27. (For proof of this just look at the recentrecession.)It is for this reason, the collectiveconsciousness, that we must share thisbook with everybody we can. When we allbegin to live our life with a driven purposeto create a positive change, our world willbegin to change. It will become ingrainedinto the collective consciousness and thatwill feed on its self – creating a massivemovement of positivity, hope, happinessand CHANGE!The more people that know about this – themore people that decide that now is thetime to make a difference – the faster andmore radiant our lives and the lives ofothers will improve. 27
