The Secret To Success And Riches
ByWillie Crawford. Copyright 2004.
Look at the world around you. Observe the buildings, yachts, and huge complexes that cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Can there be any doubt in your mind that this world has unlimited wealth?
Yet, if you're like me, you've often wondered, "How do I get my share?" You wonder why and how some people seem to have it all, while others always seem to struggle just to keep ahead of the bill collectors.
I've actually discovered the answer to that question, and now I - more or less - live the lifestyle that I want. However, it wasn't always that way. If you read my biography, you'll see that I grew up so poor that, as a teen, I once had to wear my grandmother's shoes to school. As a child, I only saw a doctor when the school nurse noticed I was sick and sent me... then I paid using a government voucher.
I also share in my biography, entitled Git Off the Porch, (available at http://GitOffThePorch.com ) that life showed me the answers to its riddles right from the start. My only problem was in seeing the answers
Life has also shown you the answer to this riddle right from the very start. That's true no matter what your background. From an early age I frequently read it in religious literature, in books on success, and I even heard it in the conversations of those around me. You did too.
We've all heard:
- Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you...
- Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve
- Nature abhors a vacuum
- Whenever you focus on something properly, nature has a way of aligning those factors that make it possible
- It is more blessed to give than to receive
All of these saying reveal to you the answer. They reveal to you the secret to success and unimagined riches. I admit that the average person doesn't seem to be able to understand these lessons. Therein lies the key.
The key is to train your mind to hear the message. The key is to understand "faith," "natural laws," and even the power of giving. The key is to cultivate the ability to tap into these forces on a continuous basis.
Most of us believe to an extent that when we give, we somehow create "good vibes," "good karma," or that we will get something back because we give. We don't all fully understand how it works. Some of us do on a psychological level. We understand the immutable law of reciprocity.
The law of reciprocity, (which applies in EVERY culture on the face of the earth), simply explains that that when someone gives you something you feel an obligation to give back. Salespeople, copywriters, and all types of "marketers" use this immutable natural law to their advantage to make more sales. That's why people in these professions give you free samples. That's why door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesmen offer to clean your house for free. That's why charities give out free gifts.
Others understand this law on a faith-based level. They were taught and believe that you should "plant a seed." Their faith has taught them that giving is somehow a key to carrying out Gods instructions to them. When we give because of faith, we do receive more! We don't have to understand it, for it to work. That's why it's called faith.
What many of us miss is just the fact that we live in a world of laws... natural laws that always apply. We somewhat understand the laws of gravity, inertia, and a few others. We believe those because we've had them somewhat proven to us. I submit that they haven't totally been proven to us.
Laws that we don't understand, we often call "miracles" when we observe them. I find it interesting that some of the greatest mind to ever live believed in miracles. Consider Albert Einstein who said, Some people look at life and see nothing as a miracle. I look at life and see EVERYTHING as a miracle."
Many things that we take as ordinary occurrences would certainly have been considered a miracle 200 or even 100 year ago. Consider:
- Airplanes weighing several hundred TONS floating through the air
- Hearing the voice of someone ten thousand miles away just a fraction of a second after they've spoken
- Pressing a key on your computer keyboard and having the letter appear on someone else's computer monitor on the other side of the world a fraction of a second later
- The fact that practically EVERY cell in your body today is not the same cell that it was a year ago
Now that you see that some miracles, and ordinary things conforming to the laws of God and nature, are all a matter of time and perception, the question becomes how do I open myself up to benefiting from these things. Understand that the things that make computers or satellites work properly existed 1000 years ago... we just didn't know how to tap into them back then.
Many of the things that lead to riches, success, and happiness are only waiting for you to discover and avail yourself of them. Those who haven't achieved success simply don't understand HOW.
Dr. Robert Anthony offered an easy to understand "scientific" explanation of exactly how this all works in his best-selling audio course "Know How To Be Rich." He explains it using quantum physics, something that sounds extremely intimidating until you listen to it explained. Then it doesn't seem any more mysterious than how your cell phone signal is bounced off of a satellite as you chat away aboard a cruise ship out in the middle of the ocean.
The whole key is to open yourself up and allow it to happen to you. That's why all of those "trite" expressions that you read earlier in this article exist and are the answer. Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it really can achieve! Most people simply won't allow themselves to really believe. They believe that others can do it, but that they can't, or that they don't deserve it.
If you want to begin getting your share of this world's riches, success, health, and happiness today, you have to begin by training your mind. A good starting point is to study literature such as Dr. Anthony's Know How To Be Rich. You can find it at: http://TheInternetLifestyle.com
Great leaders and scholars have intuitively understood the keys to success, wealth, health and happiness for centuries. However, they've always spoken in riddles or parables. Many of us have simply not really listened to those parables. The success secrets you've been searching for are right in front of you. You only need to listen and observe.
