HRS WORKED: 5
2:30pm: Woke Up After 10.5 Hrs Sleep, Airbnb House
4pm: Walked 2 Miles to Sunergos Coffee
By the time I got to the coffee shop my shirt was drenched in sweat. I had to go to the bathroom to wipe myself down with paper towels. T.M.I.?
5pm - 8pm: Startup Work
8pm - 9:30pm: Ate & Did Startup Work at KFC
Nothing better than Kentucky Fried Chicken in Kentucky.
10pm - 12am: Played My Airbnb Host in Ping Pong at the House
I don't care that she was 57 years old. I showed no mercy and won every game!
12am - 3:30am: Talked with AirBnb Host
We drank tea and talked & talked & talked. She's the wisest person I've ever met. She radiates joy and satisfaction.
She raised her kids in Northern California with no T.V. and homeschooled them. Her kids are now around my age and all of them got free rides to the top universities in the country. The thought of that made her laugh and smile.
She told me that "like attracts like". I've heard of the Law of Attraction before, but I didn't like its portrayal in the Secret. She said you have to work for what you want, but she also believes your thoughts give off an energy to the universe. She believes we are "co-creators" with the universe.
I asked, "What about the little girl who walks across the street and gets hit by a car. Did she attract that?"
She said, "Not necessarily, but it probably means she was living in a 'default' state." In other words, she wasn't on a determined path.
When I look at my life I think it's too perfect for it to be mere "coincidence". I believe the universe is actively working to help me achieve my goals because I am so determined.
I came away from our conversation thinking, "I will not allow myself to be negative (except for rare occasions and for a limited time)." Negativity attracts more negativity.
I asked her how she stops the negative self talk? She said her secret is to literally cut it out. She then gestured with her hands scissor motions around her head.
