Out of the crazy house. (but still nuts)

Lol.

I thought that was a great title.  Boy do I have some hilarious stories…

…more on that later.

I actually came out a week ago, and I’m going to be a bit out of touch still for a few days here while I finish finding and moving into my new home here in Costa Rica (think I found the place – I’ll know for sure in probably two hours from now) but I wanted to update you on how I am, how things are going, and some other cool stuff.

* If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Read My Last Post.

Answer: I’m doing great.

It’s a little bit of a mind warp to spend a couple of weeks with no computers, internet,  or any sort of outside stimulation going on at all.  Just thinking.

To be honest, it drove me a bit nuts for about a week, because I couldn’t figure out what the hell was the point of going there (aside from good PR, of course).

See normally, when I do something like that, there’s fun stuff to do – think of a cool cruise or something, but where there’s nothing to do but think all day.

It sort of reminded me of the year 2000, when I was in a place called the MTC (the missionary training center) before I went on a Mission for the Mormon church over in England.  When you walked in, it was like stepping into an alternate universe – completely separated and cut off from the outside world.

It’s kind of funny, because that year – I was actually in the MTC during the same time period I was just in the inpatient place.  And something magical happened on September 15th…

…this year, too.

In fact, September 15th needs to be called ‘The Magic Day’.

It was the first day I made a LOT of money online.

It was the day that David Sharpe and I clasped hands over a wooden table in Costa Rica, and signed the operating agreement for Empower Network.

And this year, something cool happened, too.

For me though, even cooler.

See, in My Last Post, I talked about how my wife and I have been separated for a while, and I had been dating this girl out here in Costa Rica – and then she got pregnant, and vanished when I came back from the Denver event on July 26th.

* Side note: That IS my baby.  One of these days, I’ll tell you how I know that.  I only said I didn’t know before because I was a bit weirded out by the fact that she vanished, didn’t know where she was.

So on September 15th, she reached out to me, and just let me know she’s ok, the baby is ok.

As simple as a thing as that was – it made my whole month special.  I don’t know if you know what it’s like to have an unborn child you don’t know is safe, or not.  It is the worst feeling in the world.  September 15th, the weight of ten planets lifted off of my shoulders.

And I experienced, just for a second, the most magical day in the universe.

I was really worried about it.  This is the only photo I have of my unborn child:

That was from a gynecologist appointment 2 months in.  The baby is 4 months old now.

So now, I know they are ok :)

And I’m going to be able to help her now while she’s pregnant.  Because only a wussy would abandon a baby.  I’m hoping for one more thing – and that is before I go to the ‘Fight The Forces of Evil‘ events in a couple of weeks – that I’ll get a chance to resolve any problems I have with her, so I can at least be a good Father.  That may or may not happen before then – so pray for me, or send the power of the universe my way.

Or as Tony Rush likes to do – hold a Voodoo doll, and pray wildly in tongues, holding the doll over the Bible.

(kidding Tony.  Lol.)

I really had some time to think about the future, too – to create something new, and powerful.

And all I really wanted to tell you is:

I love you, and I appreciate you.

I wasn’t expecting the incredible responses I got on my other post.

I didn’t realize how much you all love me.

I suppose it’s because really – for the last 4 years of marketing – I’ve poured my heart and soul into people.  All of me.

I’ve given you everything.

And in response – you’ve given me everything back.

What’s changed?

Everything.  Because now I know that you are the same as I am – humble, hungry – and powerful.

In the last month, I’ve gotten in shape:

Started Taking Martial Arts Again:

And in addition:

Started dancing classes (got to learn latin dance) and have been taking 4-6 hours of private Spanish tutoring per day, trying to get fluent before the re-launch of our new platform into 5 languages in January.

:)

(I speak more spanish than most of you think – a lot less than I should though)

I’m also about to start guitar and singing lessons, too.

This shit is fun.

You know what the coolest part is, though?

While I’ve been away (and will still be away until right before the launch of the ‘Blog Beast’ – just wanted to update you)…

…the growth of the team has just increased.

Empower Network has grown BIGGER.

The growth has gotten FASTER.

YOU have gotten better.

Which is what I’m most psyched about - team work.

The vision is real.  Because of beautiful people.  And because of YOUstepping up into a new power – we can all be that much better, realizing that the dream really is just about… the team.

Stepping up to a new level.

Attacking problems face on.

FACING YOUR FEAR.

Which is really what Empower Network is all about.

It’s not about being perfect.  It’s not about not making mistakes.  It’s not about being a Guru, and knowing all things.

It’s about being able to admit the truth.  Where you are weak.  Where you are strong.  And SURROUNDING yourself with other people who have strengths and power that you don’t have.  I COULD NOT have done what I just did without…

…YOU.

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

One time, I was sitting in a room full of people.  There was a guy with a receding forehead standing, staring at me with his glasses.  He walked right up to me and as he stared into my eyes, his gaze pierced into the depths of my soul, and he said…

“Do you realize the power that you now have… by letting go of the past, and embracing a new future?  Because by changing the way you view the past – you BREAK the chains that once held you down, and now… don’t anymore.  Because a chain, like all of your problems – are only as strong as their weakest link.  And now, staring into the abyss of time and space – realize something – that just as a river washes away the greatest of stones over time… So you can now flow into your new destination – realizing that there is nothing more powerful, in all of the universe, as…”

While I was in the crazy house (really, just a big retreat center.  I had a Penthouse suite in there.) I ran into a guy named Billy.

Billy had gone into that place because he was in a rough spot in life, because he had been clinging onto a problem that he refused to let go of for years.  I brought him into the room, and I had him imagine his problem like it was on a TV screen, and he was watching it from the center of the Universe – billions of lightyears away.  I had him imagine he had all of the power of the universe inside, and that he – made in the image of God could decide to see the world as if the past and the future were just one thing – all happening now.  And I said:

“Billy, NOW what does your problem look like?” As I squeezed on the side of his arm a little.

He said:

“It’s just like a blip.  Like a blip of a light on a TV screen that’s been switched to a wrong channel.”

And I said:

“Just like the blip that you’re seeing – this problem you’re experiencing isn’t a problem – it’s just a blip in the lines of time, stretching through the Universe.”

And I remembered the words of the man with the receding forehead, who walked up to me in the room.

And discovered something fascinating.

I’ll share it with you during the launch of ‘The Blog Beast.’

Coming September 30th.

I’ve got to jet – I have a house to find, a baby to take care of, a scared Mom to calm down, and the biggest launch in History to help orchestrate.

Plus, I’ve got to stay in shape, keep doing martial arts and Dance, and turn on the ‘sexy machine.’

Get ready for ‘David Wood Version 2′

Bigger.

Better.

Sexier.

See you in a few days.  Or a week, or something like that.

Love ya,
David Wood

P.S.  If you’re someone who pray’s – say some prayers for the Mom of my kiddo.  Or send her the power of the Universe, or something like that :)

And if you’re reading this PriscillaI forgive you.  I just want you, and the baby to be safe.  Whatever I can do to help you right now – I am here, waiting.

Imagine to discovered that YOUR reality is based solely on your perception of the truth – and that you could bend it to CHANGE any aspect of it to get what you desire in life. I really Appreciate you sir Dave.

I just had to laugh because most of my personal favorite interests (I say favorite because I have way too many interests) that I have not yet pursued in my life you are doing.  I made a list the other day of what I intend to learn and do.  Speak a new language (I am now learning ASL), Dance, play an instrument and sing.  Getting in shape is also high on the list and although I am older and don't really want to start a martial arts program (if I was a bit younger I would continue with that)  I will be starting Tai chi.  I already speak a bit of Spanish and it was always my dream to live in a Spanish speaking country so that I could become fluent.  I did end up spending 3 months in Costa Rica.  Being a mom has literally consumed me so many of my personal interests were set aside.  But no more!  : )  So...just noticing the similarities in interests here!

Another great blog post David.  I just had to read.  Had a great laugh in a good way of course with the martial arts video.  You amaze me!  ^5.  Do your sexy and your sexy will do you.  Haha!  The day your baby is born will be the best day of your life.  You're already a wonderful father.  I love you and will see you soon!  #EmpowerNetwork #Awesome

David,  God Bless you!  I know you will eventually be with Priscilla one day soon so you both can enjoy the baby together.   Just hang on to the hopes of this one day!  This will also be a life changing event for you...along with the wonderful life changing events you have created with so many through Empower.  Believe me, after having my own son, this baby will Empower you in a way that you have never got to experience!   That is a promise and a fact!   Life is so short, and I feel that everyone should at least have one child to bring into this world, if they are able to, so they can know the true miracle of life itself!   It's the one thing that you can actually  call 'yours', which is a wonderful and awesome feeling!   I love being a parent, and it took me a while to decide this, but it was the best decision I have ever made in my entire life!!  I'll keep you in my prayers!  Take care!  Lots of love and caring thoughts for you!!

Wow...you're a busy man... You are definitely unleashing your inner badass (new house, baby, dancing, martial arts, guitar and The Blog Beast)... This is enough to inspire anyone... Glad I touched the hem of your shorts (previous event) lol.... Your life is infectious... I'm definitely riding this wave with DW and DS...

Dave, I think you should have a chat with the folks at Mensa. They're waiting for you. Or they should be.

But more importantly, I think the really great thing you've done by sharing about your trials in your personal relationship is - you've given us the opportunity to appreciate you WITHOUT HAVING TO WONDER OUT LOUD WITH EACH OTHER about what may have happened. When people "wonder" about things - they end up either making up their own story, or they gossip, or both. BOTH of those things are deadly to success - and that's why all of us are here, in the end.  To Succeed Together.  In this Movement that will bring Real Hope and Change.  God Bless you, Brother - for having a Vision Big enough to hold all of ours. You've done all of us a Good Deed, by helping us to remain faithful, without back-stabbing, back-biting, gossiping and lying. There's no telling how many souls you protected from some really nasty sins.   I'll be at the D.C. event. Can't wait to meet you at one of these Happenings. I intend to do so from the stage.

I'm amazed. I'm not a member anymore. I just came back to see what page rank your blog was. I read the two latest installments, and as was the case when I was a member, you motivate me more than anyone I've ever come across. It has me thinking canceling was a mistake.

Father God, Master and Creator of the Universe, I humbly come before your throne to lift my brother, David Wood, who you know so well.  I ask that you to give him the peace, comfort, strength, wisdom and patience that only You can give to help him through this trial. Father God, You said you will never leave us nor forsake us, so we are standing our Your Word in faith knowing that Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence, the proof of things not seen.  Lord, we thank you for Your faithfulness, grace and mercy.  In the name above all names, Christ Jesus, I ask this all of you, AMEN!  

You have the victory, David Wood.

Totally made my day to read your words again, to hear that you are doing OK -to know that our prayers for you have helped, that you have felt the love and support of those whose hearts you have touched....that even in the smallest of ways we could lift you up - because you have lifted up so many.  Blessings and love on this part of your journey - and it will be badass to see DW 2.0, even though we all think 1.0 was just freakin' awesome the way he was.  We've missed you, thinking of you.......and the best is yet to come. :)  And of course prayers for your baby and baby's mom.

Hey man, hope all is great.  When you learn to play the guitar and sing, I'll record you (sound engineer/designer by trade) and we'll bring out a Christmas song (evergreen lol!)  All the best.  Btw, the book you told me about in Denver (Word Weaver) is difficult to find.  Keep finding courses but no actual book.  Who wrote it? Cheers again.

Well Dave, we know you have two speeds, stop and badass. I have a son like that. I have done what you are doing except backward.  I moved to a different country became a professional Salsa dancer, learned how to speak Spanish and NOW I am becoming the 2.0 of myself with the help of the whole team at Empower! I had to take a break too, God bless you and keep you and make his face (continue) to shine upon you and your new family. Much love,

Dave I am so happy for you. I'm over joyed actually. I told you she would contact you when she was ready. I'm glad you have confirmation on your baby. You are an incredible man. You are an incredible human being and your blessings are going to continue to flow your way because of it. If it had not been for you I would not even be in Empower Network. I'm glad your doing things you love to like Marshall Art's and Latin dancing. I love Latin Dance. Well any who this isn't about me it about you. Welcome home. And I will pray for Priscilla and your baby. But I have a feeling that God and the Universe has everything covered for you in that area.

I first started in internet marketing with Empower Network when my daughter was pregnant with my first grandchild.  I wanted to earn enough income to support both of us so she could stay at home with her baby.  This became my "why".

There is a plan for all of us as we go through life.  We don't always recognize what it is until later, but you will come out stronger.  I will say my prayers for all of your family and would love to see a little Wood at one of our conventions.

Wishing you the best and working to help pay it forward,

Very happy to hear from you Dave.... just know that in time I believe Priscilla will reach out to you, she is probably needing time to reflect and take care of herself.  She come to realize that a true mother would never keep a child from their father.  My prayers go out for you and her, but more for the baby's health.  

(I helped my brother go through a similar situation, and finally, after his little girl was born, the mom realized just how important 'family' is... which means a mom and a dad!)

Look forward to seeing you in Anaheim.

You have many gifts and your talents bless all of us in ways sometimes you may not even know.  I am learning that "struggle" is what makes each of us strong.  You don't know me, but one day I will walk across stage stepping into my power.

Blessing for you and yours

@MeganMaryPaterson Hey MeganMary (and Dave) the best example you can set for your kids includes showing them how to balance, and therefore include, work and play, activity and rest, and kids love music and others artsy things...I learned how to be more effective at work and therefore free up more time for play (dance, guitar, singin, languages, sailing,  btw LOL!!!)...we were meant to have a full and rich life, not the workaholic nightmare that old ways of making a living dictate. I stayed alone in Costa Rica too one month to test my latin American living dream...so cool you did too...let's swap notes and ideas..y podemos pratiquar espanol tambien!
