Ghosts Of Fathers Day Past

I hesitated writing what I’m about to share with you, but
decided to, in the hope it will help someone.

Author Robert Ringer was absolutely correct when he said
“Losers lane is the most humbling, most demeaning, and
most lonely road in all the world.”

Eight years ago I had gone from a very comfortable life to
losing everything. One by one – home, cars, savings,
retirement plan, etc, – were taken away or sold.

Long time readers know I just wanted to be in control of
something, so I decided to start with the only thing I felt
I could control; how I cared for my health.

After months of trail and error, I figured out what worked,
realized anyone could do the same, created The New Body
New Life Program
and took it to market.

Here’s where things took an odd turn…

Even though I knew nothing about Internet Marketing, I
wasn’t worried because I had this “feeling” sharing this
message was what I was “supposed” to do.

I thought this is great! I’ll share my message, make a
difference, help people, and solve my financial problems
all at the same time.

To say it didn’t work out that way would be an
understatement.

[Although I didn't market it as such, my message was
this: The only thing that will ever work is treating
your body the way it was designed and created to be treated -
and until you discover how to do that in a world that wants
to keep you beholden to as many unhealthy choices as
possible - it won't matter what else you know or buy.
Needless to say, that message wasn't as alluring as buy this
pill, tea, juice, sprinkle, shake, diet, fat burner, etc. - and
lose all the weight you want without diet or exercise.]

I’ll never forget a particularly poignant Fathers Day. To me,
part of being a father means providing for your family.

I was failing at it miserably.

I didn’t care that my old car had bald tires. I wasn’t worried
about needing a root canal – and not being able to afford it.

While those willing to lie and exploit the naive and vulnerable
were profiting tremendously…

I was putting my family through Hell.

Never being able to afford anything special. Stressing out
over every single expense.

What was extra distressing was the feeling that I had
managed to fail – even after working 12 to 16 hours a day for
several years [and often ignoring my family] doing what I felt
God had called me to do.

So there I was on Fathers Day, feeling like I had totally let
down my family as a father, and on top of it, I had let down
my “Heavenly” Father as well.

I won’t even attempt to describe the feelings of loss and
confusion. Enduring endless months of failure and humiliation
was my “reward” for trying to do what I felt I was called to do?

Instead of “selling out” and perhaps changing my financial
situation by doing what everyone else was doing [pitching the
latest scam] I told the truth – and ended up taking a slow motion
trip through a mental and financial meat grinder.

So on that particular Fathers day, I went out, sat alone, wept,
and wondered why everything had gone so horribly wrong.

I even thought what was the point of staying in shape? If no one
would ever see it, if I could never inspire anyone, why not just
go back to eating and drinking all the unhealthy stuff I used to?

I thought why bother doing what’s “right” anymore? Just go
do something – what difference did it make? Stop torturing
yourself, stop making your family live in poverty, and put all this behind you.

Here’s the point where I’m supposed to tell you something
amazingly insightful about pain, struggle, and sacrifice. However,
the truth is…

I have no idea why things go wrong. And I’m not talking about
myself here – but I have no idea why some good people suffer -
while wicked people prosper.

All I know is that’s the way life is – and that you have
two
choices:

You can see things as you wish they were – or you can see
things as they are – and decide to do something about them.

The only real insight I can offer is this: If you’re having a
problem with something – from the care of your health to how
our country is being governed – ignoring these problems won’t
make them go away…

It will however, make them worse.

I can also tell you that facing problems and doing the right
thing may not lead to instant success and accolades.

You may have to take a trip through your personal “grinder”
as well.

However, when it’s all said and done, regardless of the
outcome, at least you’ll be able to look in the mirror and say:

“I did my best, I may have made mistakes, but I took the
high road and did what was right.”

Perhaps that reason alone, is reason enough.

To your health, success, and freedom – and may God bless,

Michael

P.S. When it comes to your health, here’s what to do:
Forget about the collective solutions being pushed by
everyone and over the next 40 days try this instead: Remove
what the secular world wants to keep you beholden to and
get back to basics. You will live not only with vibrant health,
but with a clarity and freedom that’s better than you imagine.

It’s not diet and exercise that sets you free – it’s seeing
damaging, controlling, and unhealthy choices in your life -
and developing the faith, courage, and discipline to do
something about them. That’s what will change you where it
counts, prepare you for whatever the future holds, and turn
you into the person you were meant to become.
