Welcome to the SEEBEDO Life Fulfillment Course
“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.” — Henry David Thoreau
Do you want success? Are you looking for more satisfaction and happiness in your life? What do you want out of life? Who are you and who do you want to be? Where do you see yourself in the future? How do you feel about yourself today? How do you feel about your life in general? Do you know what your short and long-term goals are? You alone can define what success means to you. True success is based on your vision, your personal goals – no one else’s. Do not let others dictate what success is for you. In our society, success is often defined by how much money one has, or how high their position is. Forget all that. Success in life is doing what you want to do, achieving what you want to achieve, whether it is in your family, your community, your country, or the world. Take the power – define success your way and don’t let anyone or anything dissuade you from your beliefs.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” — Albert Schweitzer
Having a dream, having a vision is the lifeblood of success. As Jonathon Swift said, “Vision is the art of seeing the invisible”. If you have a vision, you have a reason for living that goes far beyond just living day to day or hand to mouth.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” —Proverbs 29:18
A life without dreams would be a dismal life indeed. If you have vision, you have no limits, so infinite vision is the ultimate goal for anyone that dreams of success. All great inventions and innovations started as visions in the minds of the men or women that invented them. Societies and inventions alike are all created first in the mind and the ideas born from one mind can seed ideas from other minds for generations to come. Vision and ideas are the stuff that success is born of; the soul’s desire is what powers the world and often that soul’s desire can come from one person who is able to spin that desire into success, into some wonderful thing that can propel the whole world into a new era. Are you going to make the most of your brain, which is far more complex and powerful than the most powerful computer on the planet or are you going to waste the resources you have within?
“For I dipped into the future, far as human eye could see, Saw the vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be” – Alfred Tennyson
No matter what your religious beliefs are, who your God is, or where you come from, you have the power to create a vision that will change your life and the lives of those around you. This is an absolute truth. See things as you want them to be, be whom you want to be and do what you need to do to realize your vision and your goals. See what you want to be, be what you want to be and do what it takes to achieve your goals-SEEBEDO. Aim high!
“To move the world we must first move ourselves.” — Socrates
Some will have you believe that positive thinking is enough, that you draw to you what you think. However, success is not achievable through mere “magical thinking”. I love the concept, but if magical thinking really worked, we would all be living out our fantasies, our dreams. If wishes were horses, we would all be riding, but as my dad used to day, “wishing don’t make it so”. Just because you think it, say it, want it, does not mean you will achieve it.
All the positive thinking and wishing in the world is not going to bring you success and riches. You can think about something all you want but without applying the correct success principles, you are not going to see any results. The truth is, magical, mystical powers are highly overrated and almost always a fantasy. Magic, true magic, exists only within you. You cannot throw a thought out into the Universe to make your dream come true. You cannot manifest something by merely imagining it.
You have to work at it, you have to see, be, and do, and you have to do all three, SEEBEDO. Add SEEBEDO to your vocabulary. See yourself- as you were, as you are, as you will be. See your world, as it was, as it is, as it will be. Seek knowledge, seek opportunity, seek help, seek answers, and seek truth. Be yourself, believe in yourself, be still, be strong, be committed, be kind be healthy, be wealthy, be loving, be forgiving be powerful, be honest, be positive. Beat failure, worries, fears and regrets. Do what you must. Do all you can to succeed, to help others, to be the best you can be, Take action to achieve your goals meditate, exercise, energize, learn, teach, travel, participate, live your dreams, Don’t get discouraged, don’t give up, don’t doubt yourself. Do what you love. Love what you do and do it with passion.
The Law of Attraction, which became extremely popular in the early 1900s is enjoying a renaissance today, and can create a basis for positive thinking and visualization and, indeed, in its simplest form, has proven to work for successful people that swear by it. Many people feel practicing the principles of the Law of Attraction has had visible, tangible, effects on their lives. NLP, Transactional Analysis, hypnosis, EFT, as well as religion, yoga, meditation, positive thinking courses, and countless other methods are available to inspire and motivate, people swear by these as well. There are thousands of others though, that have tried to put the principles of these wonderful concepts to use and seen minimal, if any, results. Perhaps some of us our born with a positive thinking gene, and others with a negative thinking gene, perhaps that tiny part of our brain, that makes up our emotions and subconscious thoughts functions differently in each of us resulting in higher emotional quotients for some people over others. Perhaps our life experiences, remembered and forgotten, create the sum of our ability to attract success.
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ― Albert Einstein
Thought and emotions are the basis of humanity, shaping societies and individuals, literally and figuratively. So how do we make the most of our thoughts and emotions? How do we create happiness for ourselves and live in a state of positivity? How do we make the most of a brain that we really do not understand, and definitely do not fully utilize? Albert Einstein suggested that we only use 5% of our actual brain capacity and while today this is contested, the question remains as to how much of our brain capacity we actually use. To date, no one has found a way to quantify or measure how much our conscious thoughts affect our subconscious thoughts from a scientific perspective.
Studies on neuroplasticity indicate that we can change our brain through thought and further studies indicate that we can actually influence our more powerful subconscious through conscious goal setting. Dr. Bruce Lipton, in his book, The Biology of Belief (2005), states that the subconscious mind processes 20,000,000 environmental stimuli per second versus 40 environmental stimuli interpreted by the conscious mind in that same second. The opportunity and ability exist to train our brains to positively affect our lives. There is increasing scientific evidence that supports the concept that positive thinking and conscious alteration of habits and behaviours can also affect our subconscious and our nervous systems to improve our lives and our health.
“There is nothing training cannot do. Nothing is above its reach. It can turn bad morals to good; it can destroy bad principles and recreate good ones; it can lift men to angelship.” — Mark Twain
You have to be strong enough in your belief, in your vision to be able to convince others to participate in helping you achieve your goals. You have to be able to make other people like you, believe in you and support you. In the course of reading this book and doing the exercises, you will hopefully learn a lot. You are likely to have heard a lot of it before or read it before in one form or another. Success is largely based on common sense, things you know in your heart or intellectually, but fail to put into practice.
It is important that you complete the exercises in this book. Do not just run through them and answer the questions in your head or make lists in your head or say, oh, I will do that later. Just do it! To succeed, you are going to have to do a little groundwork, it won’t be painful (at least most of the time) and it just might provide you with new insights, ideas, and methods for dealing with things that complement your personality and make you all the more likely to succeed. You need to stretch yourself, see how infinitely far your vision can take you and what limitless opportunities you can create for yourself. Accept health, strength, happiness and success and deny discouragement, despair, failure, worry, and fear.
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.” ― William Blake
There may be opportunities that you are not seeing because you are too close to the situation or too burnt out. Opportunities can come in many guises; you need only be aware of them and know how to take advantage of them. If you don’t see the opportunities inherent in your current situation, perhaps you need to look harder, be more creative, look at the situation from another perspective, or better yet, several perspectives. Opportunity may be right in front of you and you have simply not seen it. I am going to present you with techniques for success in a way that is easy to understand and implement. The ideas have been gleaned from reading and research that includes books, articles and philosophies going back more than a thousand years.
Religion, philosophy, psychology, history, anthropology and sociology, are essential elements in understanding ourselves, creating lives that are fulfilling and reaching our goals. With the power of infinite vision you will always look forward to something better, you will learn how to control your thoughts and realize your own inner strength. Your mind is working all the time, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; make it work for you and not against you. You have to live, think, and breath abundance and happiness without limitation. If you can see it, you can be it and you can do it. You cannot doubt. You cannot worry. You have to have faith and keep feeding your dream. Keep your vision in your mind and believe in it, regardless of how desperate or hopeless your current situation may appear. You have to conquer your fears and move constantly toward your ultimate vision.
The future is yours and you are the only one that can create it. Put your blinders on and ignore the obstacles and difficulties in the way. Arm yourself with your vision, and you will realize it. This is a practical guide to using the wisdom of the ages in everyday life. It is not magic, but it will feel like it if you use the guide correctly. You need to go through the whole course, do all the exercises, read all the lessons. Keep an open mind as you go through the course. A lot of what is going to be addressed is just good common sense and you will say, “I know this already”. Some of it will sound a bit off the wall, and some of it may be reminiscent of the same ol’ same ol’, but believe me, the system works. You will finish the course feeling stronger and having a real sense of direction. You will be well on the road to finding the success, happiness and fulfillment that everyone seeks. This is not an exploration and regurgitation of one viewpoint or one philosophy of success.
The SEEBEDO philosophy is a combination of several strategies that will give you the best chance for actually achieving your goals and living a happier, more fulfilling life. Seeing, being and doing are at the crux of whom we are, how we act, what we think, and how happy, successful, and fulfilled we feel in our lives.
Seeing is the first key to knowing yourself, achieving your goals and addressing your life issues. You need to see yourself, know your habits, your patterns, your triggers, your anchors, and your emotions, the you that is propelled by a merging of your conscious and subconscious mind. You need to see who you were, who you are and who you want to be. When you see yourself and the world around you clearly, you will have the knowledge you need to be what you want to be and do whatever you want to do.
Being is living in the moment, being who you want to be, becoming who you want to be. Being is embracing yourself and finding your place, your inner and outer self, your reasons for existence, making the most of the energy that is you. Be comfortable with who you are, live in the moment and find your place of comfort, your Zen, your Chi, your soul, whatever you want to call it based on your own personal beliefs.
Doing is the actual practice, the actions, that are the result of seeing and being. Seeing and being alone will give you awareness but doing gives the seeing and being meaning and completes the circle. Taking action, doing what you must do to realize your vision and expand your life and your realms of influence is essential in completing the circle of SEEBEDO.
SEEBEDO is an on-going lifelong process. See it, be it do it. See yourself, be yourself, take action, do what you need to do to realize your vision and goals. See the world around you, be part of the world, and do what you can do to make your world a better place. See people for who and what they are, be loving and accepting; do unto others as you would have them do unto you. See success, be successful, do what it takes to be successful. SEEBEDO.
Vision without action is wasted. Action without vision is reckless. Existence without vision or action is meaningless. SEEBEDO is a never-ending process. If you stop seeing, being and doing, you are dead. Simple as that. It’s the flow of life, it’s the flow of success, and it’s the secret to realizing infinite vision and achieving your dreams. Every condition, every life experience, is the result of our mental attitude. We can do only what we think we can do. We can be only what we think we can be. We can have only what we think we can have. What we do, what we are, what we have, all depend upon what we think. We can never express anything that we do not first have in mind. The secret of all power, success, and riches, is in thinking powerful thoughts, successful thoughts, being strong, and doing what you need to do to achieve your goals.
“Nobody owns anything but everyone is rich – for what greater wealth can there be than cheerfulness, peace of mind, and freedom from anxiety?” ― Thomas More, Utopia
“Yes We Can”, Barack Obama’s campaign slogan had an amazing effect on the world, it gave people a new outlook, and it fostered a belief in hope and power. You need to take the slogan one step further and adopt a slogan of “YES, I CAN AND YES, I WILL”. Believe in yourself and believe in “Yes, I will” and you will have the power to accomplish your goals and realize your dreams. Achieving success requires a highly flexible and open outlook on life.
You need to combine your own desires and needs with societal needs. You need to be in harmony with yourself and others. You need to build your strength and increase your power and you need to do it with a clear understanding of your weaknesses and strengths. You need to know yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your emotional triggers, your passions…essentially you need to know yourself, pure and simple. But this is easier said than done. Simply repeating positive affirmations and visualizing your dream is not enough. While the power of thought is definitely one of the strongest forces in the world, it is also the hardest to control. It is invisible and it cannot take form without organization and action.
Your mind operates on two levels, the sub-conscious and the conscious. Here, I want to make a differentiation between mind and brain. For clarity, let’s define the mind as the part of your brain that you can control, either consciously or subconsciously. Your brain does a lot of work for you that you don’t need to think about. It sends all those automatic signals to the body that we could not live without. It is constantly firing off neurons, protons, whatever the brain fires off to make sure your body keeps functioning. If you truly know how to harness the power of your mind, you will be able to achieve more, be happier, and get rid of negative emotional baggage.
Walter Winkle (ca. 1900)
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!
We all have a an unlimited amount of stuff running around in our subconscious, all those things we were programmed with as a young child, suppressed memories, habits, triggers, reactions, if you are not aware of that subconscious stuff, it’s going to sabotage you. It’s guerilla warfare in your head. You need to reach a point where you can say, “Yes, I will” and know it and believe it.
When I was studying journalism, the very first thing I learned was to write a good story, you had to ask the right questions. The questions? Who, What, Why, How, Where and When? Quis, quid, cur, quomodo, ubi, quando, quibus auxiliis. These questions can apply to every aspect of you life as well.
Here and now, you have to commit to yourself, it is not enough to say you can, you have to think, say, and know you will. You will love the journey, you will learn about yourself, you will overcome your fears, and you will achieve your goals, because you have all the tools and resources within yourself to realize your dreams. You simply need to know what tools you need and how to best use them.
The SEEBEDO method gives you the power to create your vision, be who you want to be and do what you want to do. Through the practice of SEEBEDO you can master the art of living the life you want to live. You can realize the supreme you, the true person you are and you want to be.

What defines happiness and success for you and how far are you willing to go to achieve it?
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” — Mahatma Gandhi
The SEEBEDO method will help you discover the powers that your mind holds. It will help you improve your mental and physical health. It will improve your memory and awareness and develop insights so you can discover new opportunities and plant the seeds for new ideas. You will develop the power to realize infinite vision because you are in harmony with yourself and the universe. A well-defined vision has its own force of energy. By utilizing your mental capacity and the power of your own mind, you can effectively create a source of power, a force field, if you will, that will propel you to success and bring others along in your wake. Infinite Vision inherently increases insight, creativity, appreciation, talents, and knowledge and destroys depression, negativism, limitations and weaknesses. Man is the sum of his thoughts, the most powerful thing in the world is thought.
The world around us, other than nature is based on the ideas and the realization of the visions of men and women before us. You don’t have to be a genius or a mystic to accept the fact that thought is power and thought is the birthplace of all that is new in our society. Everything, including practicality, reasoning, math, science, faith, belief, social mores, laws, perceptions, is based on thought. It is the invisible glue that binds us together; it is the psychic, intellectual, emotional air that we breathe. Every thought has a reaction, in the body, in the psyche, in action, in society.
On a very basic level, think of the effect of thoughts simply on your facial expressions, your posture, and your digestive system. The power of thought goes far beyond what we experience on the surface or in our bodies, it shapes us, and it projects beyond our inner selves and to others around us. If you are a highly empathic person, you know what power other people’s thoughts and feelings have over you. Imagine what kind of power your own thoughts have. The admonishment, “Think Positive” is best taken to heart. You know it. You know that when you are positive about something, the chances of a positive outcome are much greater. You also know that negative thoughts don’t help a damn thing. Replacing negative thoughts with positive ones needs to be learned, you need to be able to realize that you are thinking negatively and replace that negative thought energy with positive thought energy.
This is no new age philosophy. This concept is found in most major philosophies and religions dating back thousands of years. Harnessing the power of thought is one of the basic keys to attaining Infinite Vision. You already have the power within you, you only need to understand it, to be able to use it, to increase your awareness, improve your health, grow spiritually and have control over your destiny.
Do you want to be happier? More successful? Healthier? More powerful? More spiritual? It’s all in your power; you can do all you want to do, be all you want to be, and achieve all you want to achieve. As you work toward realizing your vision and putting the lessons in this book into action, you will realize just how wonderful and beautiful this life is and what a tremendous impact you can have, not only on your own life, but on the lives of others. Once you start to see the opportunities and possibilities that are around you every day, your confidence will increase, your brain will be stimulated, and your positive thoughts will show in your actions and attitude. People will respond to the energy of your thoughts and you will attract new people to you and those that know you will see you in a new light.
You must see first, then be, then do. Your mind is your power tool, your gateway to changing yourself and the world around you. The power is within you and until you know that and realize that all those thoughts and feelings are a force, you will not achieve success. Your world is a reflection of your thoughts, and your mind is capable of assimilating infinite amounts of information and turning imagination to reality. But if your mind is cluttered, if you lack harmony or inner peace, it is going to be hard to unclutter the world around you; your inner turmoil will create turmoil around you so it is absolutely necessary to find peace and harmony within yourself. If you achieve a level of inner harmony, it will reflect on the world around you and the result will be optimism and affluence.
Once you realize the wisdom you hold within, you can claim it as your own, which translates into a more vibrant, powerful you. You will feel it, the world will see it. Your inner self is where you can generate courage, faith, enthusiasm, belief, hope, strength, love peace, and commitment. It is from your mind, your thoughts, your soul, if you will, that you garner all that life has to give. Your whole body, your whole being is affected by your mind. When thoughts are positive and in harmony, the body responds by feeling good, conversely, a disharmonious, scattered, depressed mind, can wreak havoc on the body. Conscience and subconscious combine to make up all that we are in this world, our perceptions, and our realities-our very essence.
It is our subconscious mind that connects on a universal level, giving us our dreams, our sense of déjà vu, our unexplainable feelings of connectedness to the universe as a whole. The universality of consciousness is the basis for countless religions, the universal consciousness is your higher power of thought, it is within you and you alone know your inner universal master. You alone have the capability to tap into your higher, universal consciousness, to raise your consciousness to new levels, to find not only your individual inner peace, but a sense of unity with the universe that comes from a steadfastness of vision and the knowledge that you can control your thoughts and your destiny.
SEE IT, BE IT, DO IT!
There is nothing that can stand in the way of your success if you always keep your goals in heart and mind and create an actionable plan to work toward your life goal. You have infinite possibilities if you are willing to embrace the power of your vision.
