Many of us have a desire to better our lives in one area or another. Some of us seek financial gains, some health while others seek to foster new and better relationships. These are natural feelings. Life’s entire desire is to prosper us, to ensure that we have and achieve all that we desire. We see individuals both famous and local enjoying what we desire and we want the same. There’s nothing wrong with having these feelings. They are natural feelings, life’s way of pushing us toward our purpose and dream the pursuit of life and life more abundant.
Few of us however know what it takes to make that transition to abundance. Few of us understand what it took for those in those positions to get where they are. Few of us realize that in order to be better on the outside we first have to be better on the inside. If we feel any less than that then that’s what will be expressed on the outside.
The outside world is the world of results. Everything we see around us was first and foremost an idea in the mind of someone. McDonalds didn’t just show up. It was first an idea in the minds of the McDonald brothers, Richard and Maurice. Then businessman Ray Kroc came along, bought into the “idea” which soon in his mind became an obsession. He thought about it day and night. Visualizing its existence and feeling in advance the success of his vision. Soon that vision gave way to action, faithful action and now we “trip” over McDonalds. We get upset if an area or location does not have one.
See most of us stop at the vision and when it’s time to take action we become fearful and abort the birth of our dream. We have to believe in your vision and believe that the actions we take to execute that vision will yield successful results. “Fear” must become an obsolete emotion replaced with dominating and undying faith.
Once those actions begin we have to continue to believe through the good and the bad, ups downs and failures. These are our lessons, the strengthening of our “faith muscles”, we can’t give up. Persistent faith has to be our very essence. One of the clearest statements ever made regarding this was Christ telling His disciples “whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Simply powerful! Or when Henry Ford stated, “If you say you can do a thing or you cannot do a thing either way you are correct.”
As we believe and grow our personalities will advance. People will begin to notice our “drive”. Always remember we are what we think about most. Our life is a reflection of that. When we see, for example, a wealthy individual we are looking at their reflection. That is who they believe themselves to be! Their mind is continually on success and prosperity and that is what life is yielding them. This is “focus” keeping your mind on the things you want rather than on what you don’t want. If you’re living in poverty it is because that is what your mind is on. You may say “no it’s not” but the proof is in your reflection. You are focused on “lack” rather than abundance. Begin to be thankful for substantial income, wealth, health and love now and the Universe will give it to you just as sure as it gave you poverty. This law is as sure as gravity. But we cannot doubt at the first signs of failure or rejection. Like we said before, we have to persistently believe.
Most of success is working on you. Just like if we wanted to begin working-out. In our mind we can see the fit version of ourselves but on the outside we have may have never set foot in a gym or on a track or in a health food store or in front of an exercise video and can’t spell P90X. So when we start working out our body is like, “Hell ta tha No!!” and it fights back. But we are the master’s of our bodies. So we beat the body into submission and soon it yields results, slow at first but soon we are sexy as hell! It’s the same way with a better life. We may have only known poverty so our bodies can’t believe that prosperity is possible but the more we believe and see ourselves in a more successful state the more our bodies begin to vibrate on the frequency of wealth, prosperity, health and love.
