Make Up Your Mindset with Gratitude

Global Equality

 

Welcome to The Center of Gratitude! As you begin to read this, take some deep, quality breaths in and out and permit yourself five minutes of peace to read this, absorb it and apply it to your daily lifestyle of living with gratitude.

If you would like to further today’s message, it is available as a fifteen minute podcast, featured here.

I hope that you’ve been well and I want to let you know that as we go forward with this month, I have a personal goal to send my life-changing content out to you on a more regular basis. So, please stay tuned for future articles from me as you should be seeing them more frequently!
In today’s article I will:
Discuss the human Psyche and its primary components
The relationship between the conscious and subconscious parts of the Psyche with respect to Gratitude
Teach you how to identify when the Ego is deterring you from manifesting that which you desire
Teach you how to overcome the trickery of the Ego to ensure a steadfast behavior with proper expectation of manifestations
Teach you why knowing about how your human Psyche works is right up there on the importance scale with the vitality of “Beginning with Gratitude.” Today’s content will provide science as well as guidance from me to teach you WHY your thought processes create your life – thus giving you every incentive to both consciously and subconsciously desire creating your Ultimate Life to live at The Ultimate Level. Here we go!

There’s no doubt in my mind that throughout your days, you hear the words “Thank you” expressed to you for something you did. There’s no doubt in my mind that you’ve been instructed by people of influence in your life to “be grateful.” And there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ve felt great about giving to receive the “thank you” and that you’ve felt the desire from within to express gratitude, yet, I am willing to bet that you have a vague understanding of the power of gratitude. It’s okay! It’s not your fault! It’s just that no one ever explains it! Maybe they don’t really know. Pardon this non-scientific expression, but until today, and until I became The Gratitude Guru, Gratitude has been done very halfass.

There are journals for Gratitude. There are notebooks and workbooks and people of notoriety proclaim how being grateful has propelled them into superstardom and fame; yet they never really say how. Have you ever noticed that?

There are few books about Gratitude that explain, in a roundabout way to fill pages, why we should be grateful, but still – I maintain, very halfass. Today, I am teaching you what no one shares. It’s not complicated – so let’s learn and get moving on creating Ultimate Lives!

Today is about science and guidance so let me give you a little science and then my guidance to drive it home. We’ll do a couple rounds of this. Get that pen ready – here’s the first part.

Write this down – The Ego

The Ego is the only conscious part of the human Psyche. The Ego determines exactly what you would associate with its name. Self opinion, information, beliefs, etc. There, that’s the short science. Now for the guidance and how it relates to Gratitude.

Back to what I say all the time – thoughts become things. Write that down if you haven’t – thoughts become things. So since thoughts become things, we have to explore the essence of thought.

Here’s the deal. The Ego is the only part of the Psyche that thinks or operates on the conscious level.

The other components are subconscious, which means that we can access those thoughts at any time, it’s just that they are not the front and center, here and now thoughts that we are addressing second by second. Okay? Not hard. So, today, Ego and Subconscious.

Back to the Science – the Ego gets its messages, as explained by JournalPsyche.org, “The ego is just one small portion of the Self, however; Carl Jung believed that consciousness is selective, and the ego is the part of the self that selects the most relevant information from the environment and chooses a direction to take based on it, while the rest of the information sinks into the [sub]conscious. It may, therefore, show up later in the form of dreams or visions, thus entering into the conscious mind.”

And that, of course, was referring to the incredible Carl Jung and his Model of the Psyche. This means that what we think about in the Subconscious, and focus on, is transmitted into the conscious, where the Ego is functioning, and it’s up to the Ego to choose the most relevant information from the environment and which direction to take based on it. Therefore, if you have a conscious perspective in a negative circumstance, your Ego is going to extract the most relevant info from that situation (the negativity) and direct you to respond to either join in the negativity or to run in the other direction.

The Guidance –
By focusing on what you want just before going to sleep, as New Thought author Christian D. Larson wrote, you take those thoughts and desires into your subconscious where they are focused on until you wake up – often affecting your conscious state, or impacting the Ego where the Ego will choose to encourage manifestation of your creation or destroy it with an alternative feeling.

Allow me to give you an example –
Let’s say you are looking at images online or in magazines of something you want. Maybe it’s a little too expensive for your current reality. But you take the desired thoughts and wishes for what you want into your sleep cycle, into the subconscious; and you wake thinking of it and get excited that you’re going to manifest it because you now know how to do that from my teachings and the teachings of others in my field.

There is one potential glitch – your Ego. The Ego can, if not redirected, jump right to its memories of prior instances where you wanted something that was a little too out of your range and it reminds you of those instances, causing your great feelings to drop and essentially tossing aside any productive, encouraging thoughts that would support the overall manifestation of acquiring that new item you were so yearning for. Our Egos can be real jerks sometimes!

So how do you get around your Ego? You have to know what you really are. You’re a multipart Self, which collectively contributes to the Psyche. The Ego is one small part of the Psyche, while the great majority of your Psyche, of everything that determines your hopes and dreams, is subconscious. So you can either choose to let your Ego win, that little stinker, or you can choose to know better, inherently, and command your Ego to listen up and pay attention because the rest of your Psyche feels otherwise. “And Ego – you better make it happen because we outnumber you!” Soon enough, your Ego will give in and agree that you should get what you’ve asked for. Then by the power of the Law of Attraction, that which you thought about, with great feeling, will be brought about, also delivering great feelings of achievement!

You must MAKE UP YOUR MINDSETwhat do you really want and how do you really think and feel about it? When you hear me to say to you that you are creating your Ultimate Life to be lived at The Ultimate Level, what kind of life components come into your view?

As you have your pen there, write this down – MULO – it’s My Ultimate Life Outline and that is your order form for the Universe that delivers everything you ask for. Get specific, get clear, strike things out if you change your mind or enhance their descriptions; this is all about YOU. You can’t build an Ultimate Life or live at The Ultimate Level if you don’t know what you need or want in order to qualify your existence as Ultimate.

So, Gratitude is more than just being grateful. Just being grateful is a halfass attempt at living ultimately. If you want your individual Ultimate Life, you will create it because you now understand how your Psyche works. It is because of the activity of the thoughts you think on both conscious and subconscious levels that your Ego gets the power to choose. The subconscious doesn’t have that power. The subconscious merely submits ideas and suggestions based upon focused thought and observations and it is the Ego that decides what you receive. This is why you are filling out your MULO while you’re awake and conscious – because your subconscious has submitted ideas and you, along with your Ego, are combing through the suggestions to determine what you would like, what you would not like, what you ultimately desire, etc.

In his book, The Great Within, Christian D. Larson provides my summary for today’s teachings. He wrote, “The subconscious has the power to work out any problem, and find the exact answer to any question, at the time designated by the conscious mind; in fact, no problem is ever worked out by the conscious mind alone; the subconscious gives the real secret in every instance, though it is the conscious mind that makes the practical application.”
Before you go, I want to remind you that you can tune into my podcast every Monday morning (US – Eastern time) at 10:00a and after airing, each episode is available on demand. They each last approximately 15 minutes so you can get centered with gratitude and move forward with your greatness.

The Center of Gratitude Radio Show is here. If you would be so kind as to create a login (it’s totally free and requires no further action) then I can keep tabs on where my listeners are tuning in from, furthering my ability to adjust my approach based on where my followers are in our wonderful world. *Note – you do not have to have a login or an account to hear my program. It’s just helpful to me and I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much for joining me! Coming up on Monday, June 12th at The Center of Gratitude Radio Show, we will celebrate this month of Pride, with a special honoring and remembrance of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting that is approaching its one year anniversary, by talking about how to access your human pride from “within.” We will celebrate our universal diversity with love and gratitude, as we all deserve to be free to exist as we need to in order to feel 100% whole.

With Light, Love and Gratitude,

Dr. B

Manifested! Now What? Maintaining Your Ultimate Life at The Ultimate Level

 

 

Welcome to The Ultimate Level! With my podcast, I teach listeners all over the world how to improve their lives with Gratitude. If you’re ready to make your life even more ultimate than it is, you’re in the right place.

As a Metaphysician, my primary focus is to teach the Law of Attraction, and my method is founded upon doing so by teaching Gratitude, since it is my philosophy that Gratitude is the Gateway to Greatness.

Coming up in this blog post, I am going to address what to do once you have manifested what you have requested with The MULO. “I’ve manifested what I thought of, now what?”

An important note to remember and reiterate while you read each and every post is that thoughts become things; what we think about, we bring about; and everything we want and wish for begins with gratitude, from The Center of Gratitude.

By the end of this post, we will:

Quickly review The Bergstrom Practice of designing and planning your Ultimate Life

Review The MULO and have a MULO review for your past requests to ensure that they are still what you want in and as your Ultimate Life.

Learn what to do now – how to go about each day, now that your Ultimate Life is a living and breathing reality – further fine tuning and designing your new, ULTIMATE lifestyle.

If you’re new to The Center of Gratitude or new to the Law of Attraction, I use Gratitude as a Gateway to teach the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction says, (write this down), that “Like attracts like” – so essentially, what you think about, you bring about. Remember?

Because what you bring about is a mirroring of what you’ve been thinking, everything in your life exits because of you. Everything my life exists because of me, and everything in everyone else’s life exists because of them.

What you think about, you bring about appears again and again throughout my teachings and you will gain more and more clarity during our time together about how to access the Gateway to Greatness that is, Gratitude.

If you’re familiar with my specific teachings, you’ve no doubt created something that looks like or fully resembles your Ultimate Life, and now that I’ve taught you how to create it, you’re probably wondering what happens next!

Let’s Review The Bergstrom Practice

Part One – Think It.

Begin with Gratitude. You begin with Gratitude by thinking of what you want in and as your Ultimate Life.

Part Two – Design It.

Create your Ultimate Life with Gratitude by designing The MULO (My Ultimate Life Outline). You create your Ultimate Life with The MULO and then by living with Gratitude every minute of every day, you create the energy that acts as the building blocks of your Ultimate Life.

Part Three – Live It.

Living with Gratitude. Your attitude of gratitude immediately becomes your lifestyle because of how you are thinking and feeling based on what you desire to manifest. Your lifestyle creates how you feel and what you think about. Once you become conscious of practicing living with gratitude, you begin to see that you are living the Ultimate Life that you designed.

Part Four – The Fourth and Final – aka “Ultimate”

“Maintaining Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude” This is where we realize, “I did it! Now what am I supposed to do?” This is where a lot of people get stuck. Today, we are emphasizing the Fourth and Final part of Creating Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude! To arrive at the Fourth and Final, very briefly, let’s go back to the beginning.

In the very beginning, I told you that creating your Ultimate Life is never finished. We think of what we want, we design our Ultimate Lives around what we want, we then live our lives with gratitude and our realities shift to allow for the inclusion of our new requests. Finally, our new requests are delivered in and as our Ultimate Lives, which are synonymous with manifestation.

When you are in the Fourth and Final, and there’s a reason why I call it that – when you’re in that stage, you are in the final stage of achieving the specific request that you made. That’s your primary achievement, while you may enjoy the delightfully unforeseen, simultaneously.

Be thrilled that you’ve manifested, but keep in mind that your work isn’t done – it’s only just begun!

In Episode 12 of The Center of Gratitude Radio Show, called Accounting for Your Greatness, I directed you to think of creating your Ultimate Life like a master-planned community. The details and direct parallel to creating your Ultimate Life with Gratitude can be found from the 10:00 minute mark to the end, spanning about five minutes of total listening if you can’t listen to the whole fifteen minutes of the episode.

Each desire that you have, each thing you want to create and each circumstance you want to design for you to soon enjoy – they are all individual projects. They each have four parts and you can remember them by thinking: Think it, Design it, Live it, ULTIMATE!

Ultimate is your Fourth and Final. Keep in mind that each creation that you want to manifest is a four-part process. The Fourth and Final is the most important part of the process, but why? It’s the ULTIMATE step! It’s where all of your focused efforts come to fruition. This is where the thoughts, feelings and beliefs of circumstantial improvement blend together to construct the vision and deliver the finished, or manifested, product. It’s just the same as if you were to newly landscape your patio, courtyard or garden area. You think that you want new plants, you design the space around the new plants and you then enjoy your new garden. But something’s missing! Weren’t there four parts? Oh that’s it! You water! You wouldn’t just do all that thinking, designing and living without nurturing your creation and choose to abandon your new manifestation, would you? What a waste!

(In my episode, Planting Seeds of Prosperity with Gratitude, I talk about designing your Garden of Prosperity and if you would like to listen to that fifteen minute, life-enhancing episode, click here.)

So you see – your Fourth and Final is the ULTIMATE and most vital stage of The Bergstrom Practice. It’s the stage of the process that gives life to your visions, to your thoughts and to your designed-to-be-ultimate life!

Let’s Review The MULO

Rather than make this post unnecessarily lengthy, you can now review The MULO in full, here.

We know that great thoughts paired with great feelings create greatness, so it makes absolute sense that by being conscious and present to think the great thoughts and feel the great feelings continues to create ULTIMATE life circumstances that keep you living at The Ultimate Level.

I hope you’re listening to my podcast, The Center of Gratitude Radio Show, with new episodes airing every Monday at 10. If you’ve not yet listened, no worries! I am re-airing my five favorite episodes for the month of May as I will be on a mini World Tour with Gratitude, promoting my Practice. If you’re in Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Sweden or Austria for the second half of May, MAY-be I’ll see you there!

Thank you for your constant support and remember – every day is Thanksgiving when you’re living with gratitude!

A Phantom with Gratitude

phantom-of-the-opera-054qh3r3.k3y

On Saturday, I attended a matinee of The Phantom of the Opera at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, FL, USA. The performance was wonderful and the cast and crew did incredibly well.

Initially, we were seated in the Mezzanine and in the very front row. While the view was unspoiled it came at the cost of dizzying heights and discomfort. We were invited by friends of ours and we hadn’t thought to ask specifics of where we were sitting – we just went with the flow and were grateful that we could attend the show with them.

After about five minutes of trying out our seats and realizing it wasn’t going to happen, we inquired with an usher nearby and she suggested we check with the Box Office to see if we could change our seats.

We went all the way downstairs to the Box Office, waited in a short line and inquired if we could move. After some behind the scenes discussion, the ticket agent returned and shared that for a nominal fee we could move our seats to the center orchestra level, of which she proclaimed were, “great seats!” With Gratitude as my guide, great seats must equal grateful seats and I couldn’t wait to see where we’d been moved to.

With absolute gratitude we paid the difference and breathed sighs of relief that we could sit lower and enjoy the show without fearing for our lives up in the Mezzanine. As the show began, it hit me. These new seats were the perfect seats from which to watch the performance. We had the two closest to the aisle, yet still center and instead of a basketball player sitting in front of me, there sat a well-behaved, short, child. I could see clear to the stage without any obstruction. As it always is and always has been, Gratitude was in charge yesterday and is completely responsible for taking us from dizzying heights to front and center to enjoy what we so anxiously wanted to see.

Thank you, GRATITUDE!

With Gratitude as your guide, what you create in and as your Ultimate Life is always up to you! Start living with gratitude, now!

All Access, Ultimate Travel with Gratitude

 

Gratitude is your All Access Pass to the VIP experiences that await you in and as your Ultimate Life! I teach people all over the world how to create Ultimate Lives with gratitude and traveling with gratitude is a key component to manifesting the ultimate travel experiences that you desire.

In this article, I am sharing with you my Four Fundamentals of Traveling with Gratitude and showing you how to create, manifest and maintain VIP status in all of your journeys.

I love creating my All Access passes. That’s exactly what creating your Ultimate Life is all about. Creating your very own, All Access pass to everything you experience. An Ultimate Life is about having infinite, limitless access to everything and everyone you want to be connected with. No matter what you want, the Law of Attraction delivers exactly what you want and exactly what you ask for. It is essential that you understand your role in traveling with gratitude. To assist you in creating and gaining your access, here are my Four Fundamentals of Traveling with Gratitude.

The Four Fundamentals of Traveling with Gratitude

Thank you cards.

First and foremost, I cannot stress the importance of a thank you card. By packing a box of thank you cards in your suitcase, you are powerfully sending energy ahead of you to the experiences that you are expecting to have, that you are expecting to have such experiences that warrant the desire to express sincere thanks or follow up with at least one person or group before your trip has ended. I advise that you bring the cards with you because it’s very hard to follow up with many people who you meet along the way, by postal mail or other means of connectivity. Sure, there’s social media and the like – but who’s to say you want to maintain contact with them? Maybe you just want to thank them and have your gratitude stand out and mean something. There’s nothing like knowing you’re “unforgettably grateful.”

When you thank someone on a cruise ship, for example, who may see and interact with on average, 4000 people per week, your note of gratitude will stand out in their mind, making you unforgettably grateful. This is especially important if you frequent an industry, sticking with the cruise industry as I cruise a lot – among others, I thank people in the Hotel Department and in Guest Services. They constantly move from ship to ship and you never know where they’re going to pop up next.

I’ve had several reunions with cruise ship employees from our initial ships together to subsequent ships years later. And they have told me, I still have your card and I’ve thought about you from time to time, wondering where I’d see you again. And that makes me feel great, knowing that out of the hundreds of thousands of passengers they meet annually, they remember me. And they aren’t just saying they remember me – they cite specific memories of events that transpired where they remember me from. If you know that you’re going to spend some time in a specific location and you will most likely encounter the same people over a period of days, learn names early and make notes about the wonderful things they do so you can specifically praise them later in your card. We all carry smartphones now and they all have a Notes app; there’s no need to carry pen and paper. You can even dictate your notes!

“I need your help.”

There is no easier way to get what you need from a customer service representative by using those four simple words. “I need your help” is a request, it states a need and not a demand, it allows someone to help you which allows them to ultimately feel like they did a good deed – they helped you. Sure, it’s their job to do so, but there’s a human element to adding a personal touch, like lending a hand to cure someone’s need by an action only they can do. “I need your help” works for me every time and always gets me what I need, when I need it and I typically receive more than I originally needed because of the generosity of the person providing me with care that has surpassed mere “assistance.”

You’re never alone when you travel with gratitude.

Gratitude is all about relationships because Gratitude is humanity. Without other people, we would have a lot less to be grateful for. Note the importance of others and by showing sincerity when acknowledging their role in your ultimate journey. We don’t travel alone. You’re not booking your plane ticket with yourself on the other end of the phone, you don’t check your own bag and load it onto the plane yourself, you don’t pat yourself down through a TSA screening, you don’t act as the gate agent and you aren’t flying the plane. You can see where this is going.

There are numerous, countless people involved in the process of getting us from A to B and it’s our attitudes about everything from A to B that will ensure an ultimate journey. With all whom you meet, look them in the eyes and once you’ve locked eyes for that split second of realizing you’re looking at each other, say with sincerity, “Thank you.” Allow for another split second for your gratitude to hit them and wait for their responsive smile or other gesture and be on your way.

Ultimate Planning with gratitude.

When we plan, we think. When we make travel arrangements, whether we are booking airline tickets, hotel reservations, cruise itineraries, global excursions, etc., we are thinking. We are thinking of who we want to be with, what we want to do, where we want to go, when we want to travel, why we are traveling, and how we are going to make it all happen. Traveling is all about logistics and there is one vital detail that cannot be overlooked and cannot be left at home; it’s Gratitude.

By involving gratitude at the very beginning of the planning phases of any trip, for any purpose – even if it’s just a trip to the market – there is planning involved. The market is a quick and easy example so let’s start with that. You know you’re going food shopping, you know where you’re going to perform the shopping, you know that you will need money and shopping bags to fulfill the purpose of your travels, you determine who is going (is it just you, are there others?) and you figure out how you’re getting there and back. Of the Four Fundamentals, the planning fundamental is the biggest. Just about everything we do involves some kind of planning, which means that everything we do involves thinking. What you think about, you bring about.

If you are traveling, think about how you want to feel at the beginning, during and after your travels. Do you want to feel happy? Energized? Excited? Safe? Able? Carefree? How do you want to feel? What do you want to experience in order to feel those feelings? How do you want you travels to go? If you think about how you don’t want them to go, the Universe doesn’t differentiate between wants and don’t wants – it only knows what you think about and focus on; ensure your focus is only on what you DO want!

If you want to have an amazing journey, and you want to have a first class experience the entire time, your thinking needs to be in line with what you want with the expectation that such will manifest. Do you need to book and pay for a First Class airline ticket in order to get a First Class seat assignment? Nope. Can you book your basic ticket and be upgraded to First Class, furthering your All Access Pass to an Ultimate Life? Absolutely! Do you need to book and pay for a suite on a cruise ship in order to have one? Nope. Can you book a basic fare and think your way up to the suite life? Absolutely! I do it all the time. Do you have to have your home traffic patterns down to a science in order to not get stuck in traffic? Nope. Can you think of a stress and congestion-free traffic experience and expect to live that experience in the near future? Absolutely!

No matter what you want, big or small, it all resides in your mind. The thoughts, the planning, the abilities, the ACCESS – is all in your mind. The faster you can understand that and the faster you can allow yourself to have your ACCESS GRANTED, you will be on your way to creating and living your Ultimate Life each and every moment of each and every day!

Happily Self-Centered in Gratitude

self-centeredALERT!

BEING SELF-CENTERED IS NOT A BAD THING!

Wait…what? It’s okay for me to be self-centered? Explain yourself, Gratitude Guru!

Well…sort of.

This is one of those mind-opening moments I refer to in other areas of my upcoming book. The ignorant would say that being self-centered is baloney and so wrong of me to encourage.

Yeah, yeah, yeah – shh; I’m imparting wisdom here.

Self-Centered, as it’s used by me, literally means being centered in oneself – or focused on what one wants for oneself, to ensure that one is taken care of and that their individual needs are being met. After all, you are the only one responsible for you and ensuring your wonderful, ultimate life; it seems only fitting that you should be free to be as self-centered as you see fit!

How often do others ask you what you want? What you need? What you would like to do? Your opinion on how you feel you’re being treated? Whether or not you’re happy in your individual relationships with various people in your life?

When was the last time you asked yourself those questions?

To be happily self-centered is to constantly check “within” to ensure that you’re okay – that’s all. Hopefully, you’ll be more than okay but for the meantime, your evolution in becoming self-centered is what I’m after. I want you to understand the power that you have, already inside you. Everything that you want and desire is already yours – it’s time for you to be happily self-centered in Gratitude!

 

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Create Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude – A5 – Part Five!

conceive_believe_achieve

 

Happy Friday! I hope that you had an ultimate Thursday!

We made it! This is the final “fifth” of A5!

Thank you so much for sticking with me and for sticking with A5! I have spent countless hours pouring my extensive knowledge of the power of gratitude into this summarized, small-bite approach (from The Bergstrom Method) so that you may find it to be similar to that of a great meal; packed with flavor, savory, surprising, delicate yet robust, and most importantly – one that you’ll always remember and want to tell the world about!

Before the final “bite” of this five-course feast, I’d like to reflect on the other “bites” we have enjoyed together:

  • The first course was Accept.
  • The second course was Adjust.
  • The third course was Adapt.
  • The fourth course was Aspire.

If you’ve missed the other courses or enjoyed them all equally but can’t quite recall the specifics of each, they are all available on The Gratitude Guru’s blog.

And now, for the final “bite” of this five-course feast, I give you…: Achieve!

Achieve is the ultimate outcome. This final piece of A5 is what the other courses create. Earlier this week, I promised you that by this weekend, you would have a solid plan to follow to create your ultimate life with Gratitude. Here it is:

  • Gratitude is the universal emotion we all feel and understand to be a great feeling.
  • It feels great to be grateful!
  • The first thing we do to manifest our ultimate lives is Think. Depending on how you feel at any given moment determines which of your life results actually manifest.
  • By consciously thinking, you can activate your Center of Gratitude and begin to summon your awareness of what you’re grateful for.
  • By consciously increasing the great feelings generated by Gratitude, your thoughts that follow will be thoughts produced from great feelings. These great feelings will begin attracting more great things for you to enjoy so you can continue feeling grateful and indefinitely happy!
  • Gratitude is the gateway that will grant you permanent access to the highly sought-after place where life is lived ultimately! The place where happiness is abundant; where prosperity is unlimited; where every dream comes true; where there is only love with no mention of hate; Gratitude is the gateway to ultimate everything!

To create your ultimate life with Gratitude:

  • Accepting that Gratitude has given you everything you have and will continue to give you everything you want, is the key.
  • Adjusting your thinking so it is so deeply rooted in Gratitude that it becomes your go-to emotion will guide you in creating your ultimate life!
  • Adapting your lifestyle to thinking and acting from your Center of Gratitude will help you adjust your thinking so you begin with gratitude.
  • Aspire to share your gratitude with the world. Make your MULO and get specific about what you want in and as your life! Give thanks to all you meet; for all you have; and the awesomeness of your life will unfold before your eyes!
  • Achieve your ultimate life by; being centered in gratitude; thinking grateful thoughts; feeling grateful feelings; expressing your gratitude to others from all they do that enhances your life; and consciously observe how the gratitude you feel and exhibit for your life impacts the lives of others.

That last sentence is the ultimate component. When you feel grateful and you allow those feelings to propel you into giving thanks to another human being, you can see your impact. If you look into their eyes, you can see that their light from deep within has been sparked by your actions, your gratitude; you will know that you just made the world a better place because you just changed someone else’s life by adjusting your own!

I am beyond grateful that you’ve stuck with me, that you have read my perspective on the power of gratitude and that you now have a bigger and better understanding of the importance of Gratitude; one that differs from the one you may have had prior to reading my blog. If there is someone you know who would benefit from my blog, please share this with them! I love hearing about the impact I have on the lives of others and if I’ve had one on you, please tell me about it! I see all of your comments and thank you for making our world one, ultimate place!

I wish you every joy, every happiness and of course – your ULTIMATE LIFE!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Create Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude – A5 – Part Four

Aspire

 

Happy Thursday! I hope that you had an ultimate Wednesday!

Let’s review a couple vital pieces before we continue with A5, okay?

  • Your life is meant to be ultimate.
  • It’s up to you to determine what you need and what you want in your life and as your life in order for you to declare that it is “ultimate.”
  • By living with gratitude, you WILL create your ultimate life!

On Monday, I introduced you to A5 (which is derived from The Bergstrom Method) and its first “fifth” – Accept.

Tuesday, I gave you the second “fifth” which is Adjust.

When acceptance occurs, adjustment begins.

Yesterday, I gave you the third “fifth” to the formula which is: Adapt.

Once we accept something into our conscious thinking, we are admitting that it is a real thing and that it is happening. Because we accept, we are able to adjust our thinking to align our thoughts with the desired life results we wish to experience. Once we adjust our thinking, we begin to adapt to our new life circumstances, which are and always have been the products of our thoughts.

Today is all about the fourth “fifth” which is: Aspire.

To aspire to create an ultimate life with gratitude, you have to know what it is you’re aspiring to achieve, right? You’ve seen in previous posts where I mention the creation process. The act of conscious thinking is what drives the creation process.

What you think about, you bring about.

Because we bring about what we think about, adjusting your thinking from subconscious to conscious thinking will allow you to consciously adjust or adapt your perception of the life results you are experiencing, based on what you have been thinking!

If you aspire to create your ultimate life with gratitude, you must get clear about what you want in and as your ultimate life! You need an outline! I created this for me and I’m so thrilled to share it with you! It’s called The MULO: My Ultimate Life Outline.

The MULO Practice comes from The Bergstrom Method. To begin, we should all make a MULO and revise it as often as possible initially and then at the beginning of each month thereafter. This is a Practice that will never be “done” for being done would mean that one is deceased. This is a Practice that I personally do in order to create my ultimate life! Once you get rolling, there’s no telling how far you will allow your mind to wander and the possibilities of the ultimate life you will create are infinite! (I think you just discovered what your weekend plans are!)

Use the following questions to prompt yourself. You can always edit, you can always revise, you can always add your own questions and you can always make a new MULO, as long as you are thinking consciously. Grab some paper and a pen and get started!

What do you want?

  • What kind of home(s) do you want to have?
  • Do you want to travel? Where?
  • How do you want to travel? By plane, bus, train, car, private aircraft, private yacht?
  • How much money do you want to see in your bank accounts? Pick a number.
  • Where do you want to vacation?
  • What is your life calling you to do with your time?
  • What do you LOVE to do?
  • Where are you when you are your happiest?
  • Do you want a family?
  • Do you want children?
  • Do you want a better body?
  • Do you want to be healthy and fit?
  • Do you want to feel powerful and limitless?
  • Do you want to constantly win at life?
  • Who do you want in your life?
  • Who is your ideal mate?
  • What are three non-negotiables that you require as “musts” for your Ultimate Life?

Ultimate living is being inspired to aspire! What ultimate life will you create for yourself?

We’re almost there! Four down and one “fifth” to go! Thank you so much for sticking with me and for sticking with A5! Tomorrow, I will share the fifth and final “fifth” while weaving together everything we’ve covered this week.

See you tomorrow!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Create Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude – A5 – Part Three

Adapt

 

Happy Wednesday! I hope that you had an ultimate Tuesday!

Let’s review a couple vital pieces before we continue with A5, okay?

  • Your life is meant to be ultimate.
  • It’s up to you to determine what you need and what you want in your life and as your life in order for you to declare that it is “ultimate.”
  • By living with gratitude, you WILL create your ultimate life!

On Monday, I introduced you to A5 (which is derived from The Bergstrom Method) and its first “fifth” – Accept.

Yesterday, I gave you the second “fifth” which is Adjust.

When acceptance occurs, adjustment begins.

Today, I am giving you the third “fifth” to the formula which is: Adapt.

Once we accept something into our conscious thinking, we are admitting that it is a real thing and that it is happening. Because we accept, we are able to adjust our thinking to align our thoughts with the desired life results we wish to experience. Once we adjust our thinking, we begin to adapt to our new life circumstances, which are and always have been the products of our thoughts.

It can be challenging to adapt to a different lifestyle. But when you consider all of the components that you want in and as your ultimate life, the motivation to adapt based on adjusting your thinking becomes your guiding force.

Adapting to your ultimate lifestyle requires the first two “fifths.” When thinking consciously, we can recognize the times during our creative process that we begin thinking thoughts that do not align with our ultimate-desired manifestations. Because we are thinking consciously, we can adjust our thoughts to realign with what we ultimately want. If we are unaware or not thinking consciously, we will not know that we are literally thinking ourselves out of whatever it is that we want.

Adaptation is a change in perception. While we are living each day, we are actively adjusting our attitudes and outlooks. Where you may normally become aggravated or frustrated, you can adjust how you feel. You can consciously think about those situations and adapt to your new thought process by activating your Center of Gratitude. Because you adapt, your outcome changes and thus, your perception of what used to aggravate and frustrate you is now completely different.

Adjust every attitude, with gratitude.

Gratitude is the force that we can all use to immediately adjust every attitude. For example, consider having to stop at red light after red light. Where we may typically find hitting every red light aggravating, we can consciously think and deem these instances as “stop-portunities.”

A “stop-portunity” is a time of pause to consciously think about what we are grateful for. Make it fun and play The Gratitude Game at every “stop-portunity!” By the time you finally reach your destinations, you will feel so wonderful and so fulfilled that whatever is about to take place will reflect and further your wonderful feelings.

Don’t think so? Think about the opposite. You hit every red light, get increasingly angry with each light and by the time you arrive, all you want to do is explode. Yeah – that’s an awesome way to feel; NOT! The next time you arrive at a red light, instead of looking at your phone or returning text messages, allow yourself to be present in the moment by playing The Gratitude Game. Don’t forget – the second you feel great, you are adapting your lifestyle to this awesome feeling! Revel in it!

Accept. Adjust. Adapt.

The fourth “fifth” is released tomorrow! Stick with me and stick with A5. By this weekend, you’ll have a specific guide to creating your ultimate life with gratitude. It is going to become so evident to you that when you implement these five “fifths” you’ll create your WHOLE, ultimate life!

See you tomorrow!

 

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Create Your Ultimate Life “With Gratitude!” – A5 – Part One

Accept

Happy Monday! I hope that you had an ultimate weekend! If this weekend was not ultimate, what happened?

If you’re not sure, I want to help you make this week and every week after, ultimate!

Let’s get started!

Your life is meant to be ultimate. It’s up to you to determine what you need and what you want in your life and as your life in order for you to declare that it is “ultimate.”

Because determining your specific wants and needs is the gateway to creating your ultimate life, I am going to spend the next five days walking you through a five-part process.

This five-part process is called A5.

It is derived from The Bergstrom Method and is the easiest process to create your ultimate life.

Each day this week, I am going to release a particular fifth of the process. The words in each process are designed with familiarity in mind. It has been found through extensive study, that it is easier to adapt and adjust to new life circumstances when one can find familiar elements to aid them in transitioning to the “new.”

The A5 process, paired with The Gratitude Philosophy (which states that with gratitude, all things are possible) gives each practitioner the mindfulness directives to consciously think from their Center of Gratitude. Conscious thought from a Center of Gratitude is what powerfully attracts the ultimate life circumstances one desires, to them.

The first “fifth” of the process, is Accept.

The “acceptance” I am referring to is the following:

In order to create my ultimate life, I accept that I must first activate my Center of Gratitude. Because I am centered in gratitude, I think wonderful thoughts and feel wonderful feelings. My wonderful thoughts, paired with my wonderful feelings are creating my ultimate life.

If you can accept this, you can create your ultimate life. Your life circumstances as you see them right now are the results of what you have thought and what you have felt.

What we think about and feel about – we bring about.

In order to fully implement and practice A5, you must accept this. Accepting this doesn’t negate anything else you believe in your life – it’s very simply stating that you now understand that your life didn’t and doesn’t just happen to you – it’s happening because of you. You are not a victim – unless you think you are.

The difference between a victim and a victor are the suffixes. “Im” and “or” signify that we have a choice which means we get to choose whether we want to be victims or victors. “I’m either a victim OR a victor.”

If you want to continue through your life whining and moaning about how awful it is and how you can’t seem to get ahead; that thought process will continue to plague you and nothing in your life will ever really change for the better. You will continue feeling like a victim and that is totally your choice.

If you feel like your life is meant to be so much more than it is and/or that you are meant to enjoy every moment and that you can be the writer of your own rules, then YOU are already on the right track and you can solidify your identity as a VICTOR!

Remember – this may be a new concept for you and I expect and want you to be curious about everything I have to share with you. As we go through the week and as the next four fifths are released, clarity will come and with clarity comes understanding and with understanding, comes acceptance.

Check your inbox tomorrow for the second fifth of the process! By this weekend, you’ll have the essentials down and the weekend to have fun with your creations!

I’m so excited, I could burst!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Create Your Ultimate Life “With Gratitude!” A Five-Part Series

conceive_believe_achieve

Happy Friday! I hope that you have had the most ultimate week of your life! If this week was not an ultimate week, what happened?

If you’re not sure, I want to help you make next week and every week after, ultimate!

Your life is meant to be ultimate. It’s up to you to determine what you need and what you want in your life and as your life in order for you to declare that it is “ultimate.”

To guide you through the fun process of enhancing your life, I am launching a five-part series on Monday, August 22, called Create Your Ultimate Life “With Gratitude!”

Each day, a new, short and sweet post will show up in your inbox (if you’re a subscriber) or here on the website, introducing you to The Bergstrom Method.

The Bergstrom Method was conceived and developed by me, as it bears my name. Some of the ideology may seem familiar to you or it may be completely fresh. The familiarity will be noticeable in the names of the steps, but it’s my unique approach to the process of consciously living with Gratitude that will teach you how to create your ultimate life!

I’m so excited to share this information with you! I don’t believe that our global population needs “changing” because we are all inherently wonderful. However, I do believe that even the inherently wonderful can benefit from “life enhancement.” Even the most precious silver needs polishing! Imagine how you could feel if you lived in a permanent state of polish! Wow!

Remember – next week – all week. We are launching The Bergstrom Method and you will begin to see how a little acceptance, a little adjustment, a little adaptation, and a little aspiration will always give you the power to create your ultimate life!

Together, we can all live ULTIMATELY!
