Journey of Once a lost Man
My story doesn’t begin until later into my teens, for the first half of my current life was fabulous. I had a solid group of good friends who I have known my whole life, I was in a good school, mom and dad were happy, I had no complaints about life. It wasn’t until I was 15 years old when my parents (for a reason I do not know to this day) decided to up and move to California ripping me out of my happy situation I was in. I was crushed. I felt betrayed, attacked, angry, sad, almost every negative emotion and feeling you could think and that negative energy took me from bad to worse. I blamed every single thing that happened to me, that was negative, or any negative situation I got myself into, on my parents. “I wouldn’t be like this if you hadn’t moved me to California!”, I would say.
So being lost and pissed at a new school surrounded by complete strangers I clung to any person that would give me the time of day or say whats up to me, I sat there just going over and over in my head how everything would be better if my parents hadn’t moved. Constantly putting out that negative feeling attracted my first friend, who handed me for the first time in my life, a 40oz beer and a bag of Marijuana. I took to it and him and his group of friends like you wouldn’t believe. It became such a bad habit that my daily routine turned into, wake up get ready for school, smoke go to class, lunch go to the bathroom smoke, take a bathroom break and smoke, schools out before football practice go smoke, come home say I hate you mom and dad for ruining my life go smoke go to bed. This habit continued for two years. In that time period I almost got arrested for fighting, almost got arrested for stealing copious amounts of alcohol form grocery stores, almost got expelled from school for taking to many muscle relaxing pills and passing out during class, almost got expelled for selling ADD medicine Addreol on campus, almost getting expelled for taking a dare and smoking weed during one of my classes. I had two saving graces during those two years that I can think of, that kept me from either being arrested or expulsion, one was Football, I was a very very good player, and at that school it almost mattered more than education. My coach on multiple occasions would pull me from class, send me to the nurses office because he new or found out I was under the influence and had me sleep the rest of the school day until practice so I wouldn’t get in trouble.
The second was and only can be God. I don’t know why, I don’t know how, but I know. Anyway I found out that doing the same thing over and over yields the same result, my actions would soon catch up to me, which they finally did. On February 28th after throwing a massive party in a neighbors house that I broke into and decided to stay there because they were out of town I was approached at the door by two large Police Men, who swiftly and gladly arrested me. So for breaking and entering, theft, alcohol consumption as a minor, drugs and drug paraphernalia, and because my parents did not know what else to do, I was sent to Juvenile correction school in Thompson Falls Montana for 9 months and 2 days. It was there that I “woke” up. I saw the big picture of my life, I saw what my outlook was toward everyone, towards my parents, my attitude my energy, everything, and I began to change. I was pretty silent most of my time in there, focusing on my life, reflecting and working out. I had realized that my thoughts controlled my actions and I was the single only person to blame. So when I got out I spent 3 months back home and decided I cannot surround my self with these people and moved to Arizona, this is where the magic happens. I was surrounded by people who were doing well in school who had a great life good relationships and it just made me a better person.
Then one day my neighbor from my apartment complex came over with this movie The Secret. I had never heard of it before but was open to it. After watching The Secret I was floored. I didn’t know what to do, I had never heard something that powerful. The first thing I did, haha, and I don’t know why, was I called my grandma and grandpa and told them they have to watch it immediately. There was one speaker on there Bob Proctor who I connected with the most. He was lit up, on fire, life changing. I started listening to him speak, which led me to hear others like Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Zig Ziglar these people are unbelievable!! I learned so much about myself, I realized how unhappy I was at my old job and decided to leave that position, I realized we have one life! This is our life! We decide what we get, we make it ours. Since then I am setting goals, creating vision boards, I have competed in a marathon, I am a Certified Crossfit Trainer, I have found a Health and Wellness Social Network Marketing company I am apart of that is changing peoples lives, helping young kids like I was put down the drugs and booze and partying and pick up personal growth material while creating massive residual incomes. I have a life mission to find kids who are like me and show them the better path. Influence them and have them learn from my story, that they can choose to have any life that they want. It is truly amazing. All my motivation and desire and knowledge is driven by this online club where you get live videos from Bob Proctor himself teaching you and helping you change your life through his techniques!!
