You Become What You Think About
November 17, 2015
The universe has a funny way of rewarding those who think about success. I know this to be true. In fact, I know the REVERSE of this to be true as well. Over the years, I have watched, time after time, as the ones who are always thinking about something, make that something eventually come true!
THE GREATEST SECRET
In his work titled "The Greatest Secret," Earl Nightingale stated that the way to be a success is to fill your mind with thoughts of success. By focusing on these thoughts, you will unconsciously attract the people, places and things into your life that are necessary to reach your goal. This is what has always happened in practice.
I love that book and credit it to this day for all of my personal achievement and success in life. It created so much abundance for me that I tell everyone I can about it. If they would simply read and follow the instructions in the book, they too will find themselves extremely successful!
Turns out Earl was right. It's so simple that people I speak to can't even believe it. You advance toward the dominant goal that you are constantly striving for and thinking about. You have to admit; it makes perfect sense. If you focus on something that you cannot achieve, then you will not achieve it - you will be proven correct. Likewise, focus on "Can Do," and you most certainly WILL!
WHAT YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS
Earl knew that "what you focus on expands." By focusing only on achievement and doing what is necessary to create it, the fact is that achievement will occur! I can honestly tell you that I saw this work in practice as my wife and I were building our real estate business through the years. Today, we have a thriving number of rental properties and a growing staff of workers who appreciate that "what we focused on expanded."
The opposite is also true - so try focusing on "I Can't" and soon, you will be proven right. This is a very sad fact that I am sorry to say is true. I have watched person after person focus on the WRONG thing, or focus too much on what they will GET rather than what they can PROVIDE. By doing this, they sabotage themselves and their efforts. Back to square one.
Always remember that what you are focusing on will get bigger in your life. If you know this going in, you can dial your attention to exactly where you want it to be in order to attract exactly what you want to attract in life. It's very simple but difficult for many to follow.
SELFISH DOESN'T WORK
Here's the wakeup call to anyone engaged in what I like to call "Me Me Me-isms." Its proven that the "Me Me Me" types attract issues and problems naturally. But if you look deeper, you see exactly why they attract these issues. They attract them because of the focus on themselves!
If you focus too closely on only your selfish desires, you will be handed failure after failure to teach you a different Universal Law. The law that you can get anything you want, as long as you help enough other people get what they want. That, my friends, is Universal Law in action. Be of great service to others, be helpful to them, help them solve their problems, and watch your success roll in!
Remember, we are all "Paid, Professional Problem Solvers." The more problems we solve, the more rewards we collect. As Earl used to say, you can't stand in front of a fireplace, demanding heat and saying, "You give me heat and then I'll give you wood." Eventually later in life, folks learn these lessons and start receiving abundance. But until then, it's a difficult road many choose to travel.
You become what you think about, what you focus on expands, and you can get anything you want as long as you help enough others get what THEY want.
Words to live by. Use these three "Success Secrets" as you progress on your road to higher achievement and greater abundance!
