In 2021 I was diagnosed with cancer and entered a treatment plan, that I assumed, would be a breeze. It was nowhere close to being a breeze, but from the diagnosis onward, I chose to find the good and to look for the blessings. The great news is, there were many blessings in this experience and one of blessings lead me to write my twentieth book Savy Wisdom 2: The Sequel.
It was Napoleon Hill who said, “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
When I received my diagnosis, I returned home from the hospital and crawled into bed. It was the middle of the afternoon. After pulling the covers over my head, and feeling consumed by fear, my phone rang. I looked at the call display and it showed Bob Proctor’s iPhone. It was Bob Proctor calling me at that precise moment. I remember thinking “how does he know to call me now?” Bob was so tuned in.
Rather than rewrite the experience from that day, allow me to share a short segment from my newest book Savy Wisdom 2: The Sequel. (Savy is based on Bob Proctor and Sophie’s character is based on me).[beginning of the excerpt starts with answering the call from Bob]
“Remember that lump in my neck? Remember I told you that I was going to the hospital for a biopsy to have it checked out? Well, I went to my doctor this morning for the results, and he has informed me it is cancerous,” I cried.
In a gentle yet stern voice, Savy responded, “You are crying over something that you don’t even have all of the information for. You are getting way ahead of yourself, and you are putting your energy where it doesn’t belong—on fear. You must focus. What would you love, Sophie? You’ve heard me ask you that question before, many times, and it is more important now than ever that you focus only on the outcome that you desire, regardless of what the test results show. Please don’t misunderstand me. I am not suggesting ignoring the recommendations of the medical professionals, but you are in control of your thoughts and feelings, and I strongly suggest you get in control right now, young lady!”
Savy continued, “What are you doing right now? Where are you?”
“At home. I’m lying on my bed.”
“Get up! Get up right now!” he demanded. “Go into your office and write this down.”
Savy waited as I walked down the hallway to where my office was located in my home. I sat down at my desk and said, “Okay, I’m now in my office, pen in hand, and ready to write.”
I knew enough to follow his instructions. Every time Savy suggested that I do something, I followed through. His advice always produced amazing results. This man knew what he was talking about. He was a self-made billionaire who came from nothing and created success in every area of his life. His results spoke for themselves.
“Ready?” he asked.
“Write this statement down: I am so happy and so grateful that there is only perfect health in every part of my body. I choose to mentally move from my head to my toes setting up a positive healthy vibration. Every molecule of my body is vibrating in perfect harmony with all the good I desire. It is so. Thank you.”
I wrote down every word.
“Now, I want you to put that statement somewhere visible so that you see it every day. Perhaps leave it on your desk or tape it to the keyboard on your computer. But here’s the most important part: when you read it, feel it. Feel the result with every ounce of your being regardless of what is going on. You can use this statement to switch from negative to positive, out of fear and back into faith. And remember, I am here for you. As you go through this next phase of your life, look for the blessings. In every adversity, there is a seed of greatness. It may not seem like it at the time, but believe me, there are going to be many great and valuable blessings and lessons to come out of this experience.”
I wrote down, “Great and valuable blessings and lessons come from this experience.”
“Everything that you have created in your life, Sophie, from your dream home to your best-selling book, and building a very successful, thriving business, all came because of your effort. You know how to get the results you desire, even when there is no evidence of it in sight. The same energy to create a successful business can be used to create a successful outcome with your health. It is a matter of desire, decision, focus, and energy. You know how to do this, Sophie. I believe in you, and I believe in perfect health for you.”
“Thank you, Savy. I am grateful for you,” I said from my heart. “You are literally a life-saver in more ways than you know.”[end of excerpt]
To find out what happened next, I suggest you get the book Savy Wisdom 2: The Sequel (wink).
I feel so blessed to have met the incredible Bob Proctor more than forty-three years ago. As a result of Bob Proctor’s teachings, my life has been transformed in extraordinarily positive ways. Can one person make a difference in your life? One man made a massive positive difference in mine. I believe he saved my life, more than once.
Look at the challenges, and adversities you’ve experienced in your life. What are the blessings from those experiences? What can you learn from it? What will you do with it? Is it as simple as taking lemons and making lemonade? Sometimes it is.
