Hello Friend

My name is Pete Cossaboon and this my fiftieth year on Earth is the year I have always known my life would change. In the past I was always a fear based being. I felt that if I imagined the worst outcome of any situation, I would be better prepared since I had already faced it in my mind and would know how to react. Little did I know at the time that I was creating for myself a future filled with negative outcomes. In 2007 I found myself at the very lowest time in my life. I had lost everything that I held as important to me and that gave me my identity. Homeless, jobless, penniless, friendless I told a new friend that all of my worst fears except for one had come true. What my friend Mike told me was the beginning of a journey I am now on for the rest of my time here. Mike told me that I had realized this situation because I was focusing on them. I realized at that moment that he was right. My current situation matched the mental picture in my mind so closely that it was bewildering. I decided to change my mental focus and design a new life for myself.

I began to study the law of attraction and the writings of successful people and I decided that I was going to live a different life. I didn’t know how in the world I was going to make this happen, I only knew that it was the truth and that it would be so. Amazingly in 2012 I realized that everything I had decided would be in my life was now so. The only problem was I had not created a new vision to grow from there. As any vessel not given any direction, things immediately began to become difficult. I once again felt as though I might lose what I had worked so hard for. I really couldn’t believe that I had neglected to continue to design my life. Life is about change and it is important to know that you must always have a new destination planned out or you will be subject to the ebb and flow of life that most assuredly will not take you where you want to go.

I want to help others and continue to learn for myself, the power that all of us hold inside. Life is not as hard as we make it. When great things happen in our life we feel good. Why does feeling good feel so good? Because we are designed to feel good. Simple right? Know that you are worth the best life you can live. I will be there to help and together we will design the life we want to live.

With thoughts of peace, joy, health, and abundance

Pete
