Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons


I am a swimming instructor, and I give swimming lessons in God's ocean of love. Zig Ziglar said, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Zig was talking about love. When you love people, they instantly recognize it. No explanation required. Love is so important that Jesus said you could recognize his disciples by their love. It's the hallmark that identifies them as children of God. It's their way of life. I can think of no higher calling than being a swimming instructor in God's ocean of love.


Now it's time to get your fist swimming lesson. I hope you dive in and have a great swim. Take a lesson from the smart fish.

Once there was a smart fish who taught himself to read. Finding reading material wasn't difficult because the oceans had become the trash bins for the world. Millions of people loaded their rubbish on giant barges and sent it far out to sea where they dumped it. Although this wasn't good for the oceans, it provided the brilliant fish with a never-ending supply of reading material.

One day the fish read an article that said all life was dependent on water. It pointed out that many places on the planet could no longer sustain life because of insufficient water. The highly intelligent fish decided that if water was so important, and his survival depended on it, he must find some water for himself. He gave up reading and spent the rest of his days swimming in the oceans relentlessly searching for water. Water became his holy grail. The fish eventually died without discovering he had been swimming in an ocean of water every day of his life.

This fish is like billions of people who swim in God's ocean of love without realizing it's there. Although it sustains them, supports them, and keeps them alive, they can't see it or feel it because they never learned to focus on it.

Swimming lessons in God's ocean of love - David J. Abbott M.D.

God's love is an eternal fact that sustains the world. No matter what you do, you cannot escape it. You can ignore it or reject it, but it will not go away. God's love surrounds and envelops you. It continually reminds you that you can be one of his children. For your entire life, you will either sink or swim in God's ocean of love.

When you jump into God's ocean of love, your life is never the same. You are born spiritually and become a new person. Old things pass away and all things become new. You look at the world through new eyes and listen with new ears. You think new thoughts, take new actions, and have a new life. God's love changes the way you think and feel. It washes the toxic waste out of your mind and gives you a clean mind and a pure heart. Your old way of thinking and feeling is gone. Your mistakes and failures are cast into his ocean of love. For the first time in your life you dare to call God your Father and live as one of his children. God's love heals your damaged emotions, and your negative feelings and guilt are washed away in a tidal wave of love. Each day you must jump into God's ocean of love and have a life transforming experience. Dabbling in it will never do. This is a total immersion experience. This isn't something you do just once and the positive effects last for a lifetime. You do it every day for the rest of your life. For as long as you live, you max out on God's love.

Swimming lessons in God's ocean of love - David J. Abbott M.D.

Don't be like the smart fish looking for water that surrounds him on all sides. Don't swim in God's ocean of love without realizing that it's there.

If you are looking for love, look no further. For your entire life you have been immersed in God's ocean of love. Stop looking for what is already there. Wake up and live. It's time to go for a swim. It's time to max out on God's love.

For more swimming lessons in God's ocean of love, read Dr. Dave's book, Real Power: Maxing Out On God's Love.

There is no limit to how good my life can become when I open my heart and mind to the power of His love. God loves and accepts me the way I am, but He loves me to much to let me stay that way.

Positive Self-Talk Yellow Book

Many people believe change is impossible. Most of the time they are confusing personality with personal behavior. The basic human personality is relatively constant over time, but human behavior can and does change. Personal change happens when people change the way they think. I have numerous patients formerly addicted to meth, cocaine, heroine, and alcohol, who escaped their addictions without ever going to rehab for treatment. They simply arrived at a point in their life where they no longer wanted to be prisoners of their addictions. They had experienced enough misery to last ten lifetimes, and they said no more. They changed their belief about who they are and what they can do with their life, and they became a different person who was chemical free. I am grateful to those patients, because they proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that people in the worst circumstances can and do change. Because of them, I am committed to helping people change their lives one belief at a time using positve self-talk. Positive Self-Talk Yellow Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.


Positive Self-Talk Gold Book

Mark Twain wrote, “Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts or happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever blowing though one’s head.” Mark Twain was right. Life consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that blow through your mind. The events of life can be trivial, tragic, and even monumental in nature, but the events themselves have little power. It’s the storm of thoughts about those events that controls our lives. Surviving the storm of thoughts is how we spend most of our time. No matter what we do, the storm still blows, and to a significant degree shapes our lives. Surviving the storm is something we do every day all day long. An entourage of thoughts accompanies each event in our lives. Those thoughts can be positive, negative, or most likely, something in between. Those thoughts are the battleground where we come to our agreement with life. Those thoughts define who we are and what we can do. You need to learn how to control the storm of thoughts blowing through your mind. Positive Self-Talk Gold Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.


Positive Self-Talk Silver Book

You can change who you are by changing what you say when you talk to your mind. Just be sure you are speaking a language your mind understands. Your brain speaks to you in its own language, and if you speak to it in the same way, it immediately responds in a powerful fashion. That’s why change proceeds most rapidly when you talk to yourself using the language of the mind. If you don’t speak the language of the mind, you may as well stop talking until you learn it. The three most powerful components of the language of the mind are images, sounds, and emotions. When my brain wants to get my attention, it does not send a text or an email. It blows me away with sights, sounds, and emotions. If you want to get your brain’s attention, you need to do the same thing. Send a message full of sights, sounds, and emotions. Start speaking the language that your mind understands. Positive Self-Talk Silver Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.


Positive Self-Talk Purple Book

Living small serves no great purpose. Living as if you are a great person is a powerful idea that changes lives, and those who take it seriously change their world. Living as if you are great means you live as if your dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. You act as if you cannot fail. In order to live as if you are great, you have to think the way great people think, talk the way great people talk, and act the way great people act. Great people think, talk, and act their dreams into existence. If you ever become great, it will be because you think great thoughts, repeat great self-talk, have great expectations, and act as if you cannot fail. Some people wrongly believe that change is impossible. Leopards don't change their spots, and zebra stripes are forever. But people are different. People change their stars. They change their stripes, and their spots disappear in an instant of time. That instant happens the moment they develop positive expectations and believe they have the power to change. Positive self-talk and positive expectations can take you anywhere you want to go. Positive Self-Talk Purple Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

Positive Self-Talk Red Book

A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. The same is true of your self-talk. It must be persistent, positive, and specific to have maximum impact. Lack of persistentce has laid more dreams to rest in the cemetery of failure than any other cause. There is zero chance that you will succeed on your first attempt. If your dreams are great, You will fail again and again on your way to the top. Before you can be great, you have to be good. Before you can be good, you have to be bad. Before you can be bad, you have to try. Millions of people stop at try. Thousands get stuck at bad. Hundreds quit at good. A few go all the way to great. If you don't have persistence, you willl never make the trip from try to bad to good to great. Positive Self-Talk Red Book helps you develop a persistently positive focus so that you can develop a consistently positive mind. More than one-hundred Power Graphics contain powerful thoughts that you need to have in your mind. Positive Self-Talk Red Book is now available at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

God has unlimited power, but he needs people who believe to manifest that power to the world - David J. Abbott M.D.
