Listen to the audio companion of “YES-Shouts Have No Clout!” Did you give up your soul to take on a roll that is less than your Authentic Self? Rob takes the conversation deeeper on WROAR.
As I said on last evenings WROAR blog talk-show broadcast: YES-Shouts have no clout when spoken from an attitude of WOE.
Shouting “YES” with a positive affirmation does not guarantee that the Law of Attraction will go into action as you would like it to.
When I shout “YES” with an attitude of WOE, I find it impossible to achieve my goal. WOE is my acronym for What On Earth, which is the chant of the helpless victim – the victim can never see victory.
How do I know when I am shouting “YES” from an attitude of WOE? How do I know when I’m reading self-help blogs and books, hoping they will help me, but deep inside I don’t believe it?
Answer: I sense that something is missing in my life, and refuse to admit it. I sense that what’s missing is the original me – the Authentic Me that was born into this world absolutely free of howling NO’s. (Those 60,000 NO’s we hear from age two to six). I sense it but I do nothing to deal with it. I simply try to smear inspiring quotes over my feeling of ‘something is missing’.
The details of my story of 60,000 No’s is mine alone, but at the base of this story is a story that we all live through. We give up our soul and begin playing a role – a role that seeks approval, a role that wants to look good at any cost, a role insists on being right for fear of being wrong, a role that tries to dominate the world in order to avoid being dominated by the world. This role grounds my soaring spirit – it destroys my sense of self-initiative. Have you ever played this role?
How else do I know when I am shouting “YES” from an attitude of WOE?
Answer:I feel invisible because I am not in the world the way I would naturally like to be. My original, creative nature is buried deep under that haystack of NO’s that I heard between ages two and six.
There is nothing more painful than living beneath one’s potential. To agree that ‘WOE is me’ is the role you came here to play is a severely self-punishing curse. Have you felt it? Can you feel it now?
And what is one more way that I know when I am shouting ‘YES” from an attitude of WOE?
Answer: The natural light that shines bright within me is unable to illuminate the world so that I see its many treasures. With an attitude of WOE, I project my inner darkness onto the world, and the Law of Attraction kicks into action – bringing my fears and worries upon me.
Again, I remind you that my story is my story, but your story is the same story but with different circumstances and conditions to substantiate it.
So, how do I let go of my false role?
How do I let go of playing the role of helpless victim?
1. GO ON HIGH ALERT! Practice catching yourself shouting “YES” when it is coming from an attitude of WOE. The attitude of WOE threatens you with feelings of losing even though you are shouting ‘YES” to winning.
2. TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR INWARD SELF-TALK! Take the time to say to yourself – “I refuse to listen to this erroneous feeling that is trying to sabotage my success.” Proper inward self-talk is key to Sweet Victory over WOE.
3. BECOME A TRAFFIC COP! Pause and wave the negative emotion on – let the negative emotion flow through. Don’t argue with it – simply let the negative emotion go on its way. Now you can begin working on saying “YES” in a confident voice that carries clout. This voice is soft. It need not shout.
What you’ve done with the above exercise is call upon an MD. An MD is a Marvelous Denial. You are taking the time to ‘deny the lies’ that give life to negative emotions – emotions that make you feel helpless and inadequate.
Millions love the voice that falsely shouts “YES.” They believe it has clout. They parrot motivational quotes, hoping that will help. This is why millions continue to suffer while silently hoping to achieve their dreams.
Freedom from the self-hampering voice that falsely shouts ‘YES” will leave you at the ocean’s edge – there, you find a vast sea of possibilities, coming like waves at you.
As you become Wonderfully Obsessed with Winning in life, WOW becomes your attitude of choice, and “WOW is me” becomes your natural tendency.
Teacher: The truth is never complicated.
Student: Why does it seem so complicated?
Teacher: The mind is complicated, and you’ve made it so.
Student: So where might I find clarity?
Teacher: Work with the mind until it becomes intelligent to WOW, and then you can start anew any moment you choose – including right now!
A full explanation of 60,000 NO’s … WOE … WOW … and calling an MD is found in my book, A Second Chance At Success. Read the book and you will no longer be puzzled when seeking the path to powerful inner peacefulness, which assures outer success.
Thank you and blessings
