“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say ‘no’ to almost everything.”
– Warren Buffett
What is going on. How are we all doing.
I am excited for today. A new game to play. A new game to experience. The game of life.
Most if not all of today will remain the same for me, internally. I follow my three main baseline habits: no thinking, positive thinking, and positive actions. The purpose of all those three habits is positive feelings. Feeling good is my goal. High vibration is my goal. Joy is my key. Joy is my purpose. Following my bliss.
No thinking means tm meditation, vipassana meditation, mindfulness meditation, chanting mantras, being present by using my senses and mind, etc.
Positive thinking means appreciating the good, being thankful, counting my blessings, remembering the good, noticing the good, expecting good to come to me, being solution oriented, being optimistic, having faith, being cheerful on purpose, thinking positive on purpose, speaking affirmations, writing positive words, speaking good to others, seeing good with my eyes, seeing things working out with my mind, etc.
Positive actions can be many things. My main daily positive action is to exercise for a minimum of 20 minutes. Flossing. Clearing clutter. Drinking plenty of water. Taking long slow deep breaths. Eating the right macros and micros for my body. Doing good for society, friends, and family. Doing things that are good for me. Reading, watching, listening to positive helpful useful content. And so on.
Even though today will have many variables, my goal is to remain the same positive person inside by doing the same positive habits from yesterday. To maintain my high vibrations (positive emotions, positive attitude, positive mindset) no matter what. That is my game. Be happy no matter what.
I am thankful for today. This is the best I have ever felt, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
I am appreciative. I am eager. I am ready. I am healthy. I am blessed. I am strong. I am happy. I am favored. I am fortunate. I am successful. I am victorious. I am joyful. I am positive.
Now let us win the day!
The best day ever is coming to a close.
(Every day is the best day ever.)
I am happy to continue the streak of good habits that I cultivated in my yesterdays.
No thinking, positive thinking, and positive action. (Meditation, appreciation, and exercise.) That is my baseline.
I also have many other good habits that I am watering daily. I am happy and satisfied with what is and eager for more tomorrow.
I also thought good and did good for society, family, and friends. Giving back is on my daily list. I feel good about that. (This blog is part of my giving back.)
I look forward to giving back to society even more every single day. Doing maximum good for maximum beings, using my gifts, talents, creativity, skills, and intelligence.
Lots of great things happened today. I am thankful. Lots of good fortune happened today. I will count them all. Lots of blessings came my way. I will relish them once more in my mind. I will think good happy thoughts as I fall asleep.
My body feels fantastic. My mind feels amazing. And I am in great health. I am blessed in all kinds of ways. I am highly favored and easily accept all of my blessings.
(We all are favored and blessed.)
Today is a major win. I am appreciative.
(“All we do is win!”)
A great night’s sleep awaits and I look forward to waking up tomorrow with enthusiasm, excitement, and eagerness.
Had a fantastic hiit walk session on treadmill with Arnold as the content pairing. 30 minutes.
Then 23 minutes of stretching afterwards. Might as well keep winning, I said.
The immortal eternal workout streak is at 81 days.
Miraculously, a slice of cheesecake appeared in my fridge, which served as the reward along with my dinner.
Life is great and I am thankful!
Let’s keep it going! Let us keep winning.
Meditation (no thinking)
Appreciation (positive thinking)
Exercising (positive action)
= High vibrations (positive feelings)
With these three habits as my baseline, and high vibrations as my daily goal, I believe all things are possible!
If you are tired (body or mind), just meditate for 30 minutes or even an hour. Fast recovery, rather than pushing thru anyways or sleeping.

How are we all doing today?
I finished off yesterday with the most fantastic workout yet. Here’s how I did it. I needed some incentives. Motivation. Reward. My original promise to myself back in January when I started my exercise streak was that I would have rewards for myself for working out. One treat meal a week. A reward day of whatever I wanted.
It had been more than a week since I had had a true reward meal. Something I care about. Usually it is sushi. A sushi feast can get me to do anything!
I have tried various other food rewards as well. Yesterday I turned to pizza. I haven’t had pizza in maybe over 6 months. I chose pizza because it is something I can share with the family. I thought generously, hehe. Sushi, only I love.
I set an order for pizza as my incentive. It would take 90-100 mins to arrive. Two medium pizzas, one supreme and one veggie. As soon as I hit send on my order, I felt energized and motivated.
I had one of the best workouts I have had in forever during that time. I did a bodyweight “beef building” circuit of pushups, planks, supermans, sumo squats, and stars (jumping jacks without the jumping). I hit new records. This is the first time in my life that I have done 40 pushups in a day. The workout lasted 43 minutes. Sweatcity! Endorphin country! I felt absolutely pumped up and managed to change my emotional state to exuberance.
Pizza was great. I had 5 slices. The key was getting myself the proper incentives to work out. Yesterday marked 80 days in a row that I have worked out 20 minutes or more (usually more). I started on January 12th with the goal of working out 20 minutes, 3 times a week and haven’t missed a day yet.
Throughout the journey, I am learning about mindset, focus, dedication, persistence, inspiration, motivation, incentives, friendly competition, group motivation, and rewards. Doing it no matter what. My minimum of 20 minutes a day is maximum priority.
My golden trio continues. Meditation, Positive Thinking, and Exercise. Every day. No matter what.
I have two main life objectives. One is BUFF. I have that written on notecards strategically placed all around my rooms with numerical milestones to hit. I also have a printed yearly calendar where I place a red X on the days I have accomplished my 20 minute goal. Visual cue. Visual wins. Keeping the streak alive at all costs.
I have also established other positive habits but my main destination remains the same. Every habit is a step towards my main destination.
I have built my two life goals as intense desires. That is all I think about, imagine, write about, speak about, text about, and read about.
I of course maintain high emotional vibrations too. That is the ultra goal. To be happy every day and all along the way. Meditation, positive thinking, and exercise help me raise and maintain high emotional vibrations. Strong mind and strong body. Being as positive and focused as possible per day. Treating each day as one whole game, with four quarters. A beginning, middle, and end. Winning each day no matter what.
The order, as I understand it from Abraham Hicks, goes like this.
General Positive Thinking
Specific Positive Thinking
No Thinking (meditation) and General Positive Thinking (appreciation) raise my vibration. Then I can do specific positive thinking about my desires, as long as it feels good. Feeling good is the main priority. Maintaining high vibrations is the main goal.
Whenever the vibration dips by going too specific, I can back up and go more general with my positive thinking. And I can always meditate if my vibration dips lower. As a last resort, just go to sleep! Sleep is the best meditation, as Dalai Lama says.
This is all about learning to fly.
Ok, let us win the day.
Count count count your blessings
Gently down the stream.
Merrily merrily merrily merrily
Life is but a dream!
I was listening to a prosperity meditation by Deepak Chopra and he said something that stood out. Paraphrased, gratitude is the state of abundance.
It reminded me of what Abraham Hicks talks about. If you feel like you have plenty, you get plenty. If you feel thankful, you get more things to be thankful for. If you feel appreciation for all that you have, more things to appreciate flow into your life to match your vibration.
This was a good reminder for me!
Be satisfied and more satisfaction comes. Be happy and more happiness comes. Feel love and more love comes.
