Most diets focus on the waistline, the Seven Day Mental Diet
addresses the negative fear based limitation thinking which lies at the heart
of all failure and perceived lack in our lives. In the garden of our thoughts
we must learn to carefully choose the crops (thoughts) we plant and nurture in
our consciousness. One of the fundamental truths of being is the thoughts we
entertain consistently will outsource in
our lives. Whatever we are reading, watching on television, the internet,
the topics we consistently chat about with friends and family, the thoughts we
dwell on privately (secretly) when alone, all comprise the garden of our lives,
the “food of thought” we partake of daily. Remember this fundamental truth: thought is causative and once our
mental diet is in order, everything else in our lives will fall into place.
Day One: Be aware of the thoughts floating through your minds’ eye, the
“food” you are mentally ingesting. The key is to observe passively and not
judge or try to discern the origin of a particular thought at this time, for
this leads to reflecting morbidly which in turn leads to failure. Stay in the
moment, observing the types and frequency of the random thoughts that float
into your consciousness. Keep notes if it helps, no extra points for spelling
or correct punctuation. DO NOT tell anyone that you are on this diet or any
other for that matter, for to do so all but guarantees failure. If the idea of
doing this makes you cringe, then don’t. You are not ready. Just file it away
and when ready, this wonderful tool of freedom will be available.

Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives.
My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years.
As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives.
In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725.
I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at https://livinginspirit.blogspot.com with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
