How being… success works
First the thought is born, the idea.
Then you need to have an intention of that idea. And this is the most important ! ask yourself what do I want from this thought this idea …there is nothing wrong with wanting to make money, but if your intentions are to only make money you will never be happy and I will tell you why.
Ask yourself why do I want money ? do I need something right now in this moment. … you may say yes! I need to pay the rent… I need to feed my kids… I need to keep the utilities on …
However you can’t eat! money.
You may have money and not pay the rent. Many people spend their money on gambling, smoking, drinking. what do you really want ? Happiness?
Success is something that happens, it has no limits , no size, it has no preference good or evil anyone can obtain it. It can cause happiness, fame, depression, sadness ect..
A child can be successful at crawling or a millionaire at making another million .
Our thinking is energy and the universe is very obedient to conform that energy into what we call our reality. So pay close attention to your thoughts.
Re-think your intention and ask your self again, what is my intention of doing this? Of wanting this thought? Because believe it or not You! are in control of your thoughts, You! choose them no one else. And if you have the right thoughts, the right thinking. the right intentions …MAGIC does seem to happen.
Bill Gates, Mother Teresa, Oprah Winfrey, , along with many others have something in common: Is it just good luck? Does it make sense that a little black girl growing up in times of such prejudice, not only for African-Americans, but also for women in general. And yet she becomes one of the riches women in the country . Bill gates A College dropout builds a multimillion dollar company. Mother Teresa is known and loved around the world and even receives the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. Do you think that it is luck? Or is what they have in common, something else? Perhaps its the way they don’t think. The odds were against all of these people …but their thoughts their attitude toward life were the same.
Take a moment and imagine any one of these people throwing a fit in traffic, yelling about how life is treating them unfairly, or dwelling on their horrible childhood, do you think they would have got where they have in life? Can you imagine anyone of these people having a negative personality? do you believe that anyone of their intentions were just to make money, or to become famous?
They simply had a passion! their intentions were to give, to make a difference to create.
You don’t have to imagine it
I’ve heard Oprah say she never thought her talk show would be so successful, she didn’t have to even imagine it and yet it still happen. She had a passion and it was to help people. I would imagine the money and fame were just a bonus, the real reward is fulfilling the intentions of giving… making a difference.. emanating their passion with gratitude, acceptance, and presences. The universe did the rest.
That magic universe that excludes no one .
You may say… yes ” But I don’t have any time for that”
We may think that important people must have golden minutes in the day that somehow they spend their day differently .. somehow their moments! in the day are magic moment and each moment is spent doing magical things, things that are only meant for special people with special thinking powers.
No! the president or even the Pope have the same minutes in the day as you. the same space to work the same 24 hours. The only thing that makes us different is how we choose to believe. you may say well he has power, money , ect….
When you take away the idea that power, money, material things, have true meaning! We are left with people all standing there in the same space.
What is left of this person without power? money? or material things? what are you! without power? money? or material things.?
If we have an earthquake you may have a smaller or larger pile of rubble then the next guy, Your house may be gone but the space still remains.
Never think your intentions are to big or to small
We are born in different forms. different DNA, but still in the same world.
If you are born without a voice doesn’t mean you can’t make a beautiful sound, it doesn’t mean you can’t be heard,,, Just because you were born without arms doesn’t mean you can’t create beautiful art .. being born without eyes doesn’t mean you have no vision.
Remember a time you felt successful at something. No matter how small. The journey through the process of success is the same . The universe doesn’t recognize big or small success.
First what is something you think is a success.. a BIG! success? maybe curing a disease, writing a famous song , creating a piece of art , writing a best seller.
What does it mean to you
You might be surprised to know, that your idea of success could be very different from the next person , for example a person that just wrote a great novel , may believe success is having a relationship having a family. And with that thinking… may feel like a failure. The only thing different about people who is really no different ! Because we all do it…is having different thoughts. We have different ideas. and those different thoughts, different ideas ..may have different meaning to us.
My mom always said watch your pennies and your dollar will take care of themselves.
I say watch your intentions and life will take care of it self .
