Would you believe that every individual is entitled to succeed?
Every individual, that means you, me, everybody is entitled to succeed and become great in their lives. We don’t need to do great things right from the start. No one thinks they’re capable of doing this.
The secret is in doing little things in a great way every day. We should not only use but also enjoy every good in the universe.
Menkind is born to be rich, where “rich” means anything you desire, not strictly in the financial sense. In fact, money is just one expression of being rich. Maybe rich to you means having time and freedom, traveling, having great relationships and family who love you.
However, one must also understand that for developing properly all these things, as well as our potential and talents, we need things and we can have them only by buying them, therefore the money is an essential tool, not the final goal.
Many people don’t understand this concept and think rich people love their money and seek it for the sake of it. Which is not entirely true. They like money, but their goals are something different.
John Green summarised this in the following:
“People were created to be loved. Things [e.g. money] were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is that things are being loved and people are being used.”
Because of this understanding of richness, why we can affirm with confidence – we were born rich already!
The powers, the potential that each normal person has, including you and me, are inexhaustible! The reservoirs of skills and talents are unlimited!
You might think that this is exaggerated, but it really isn’t. Namely, in order to be successful, there are two things that have to happen.
Firstly, we have the six higher mental faculties (imagination, will, reasoning, memory, intuition, and perception) that are dormant in every person, in all of us, and they have to be properly developed;
secondly, they have to be scientifically applied. An educated person is not necessarily a person with abundance in general or specialized knowledge, says Napoleon Hill, but rather a person who has mastery over their minds and mental faculties they possess, and thus they can achieve whatever they want.
We have been raised to live from the outside in, which means to rely on our five sensory factors: what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. By living in this way, we leave the outside world to control us, we give away the innate power that actually resides in us. We let the “lower” physical world control the “higher” world of thoughts and ideas. And this violates the laws.
The actual system that works is from the higher to the lower potential, i.e. from thoughts into things, from spiritual into the physical world. The spiritual manifests itself through physical. This might sound quite “fluffy” and unreal but think again about that example of an architect that creates a building in his mind first before it gets built. Or of a child that wants a birthday cake.
First of all, the building and the cake exist as thoughts, desires, in the higher-potential spiritual world, and then they are manifested into the physical world through constructors or the child’s mother.
If we want to live and work in harmony with the laws, we need to operate similarly – from the top to bottom, from thoughts toward things. The mentioned six mental faculties help us in this quest. And they are so great that they deserve a separate series of articles I want to write and share with you! They offer us an endless capacity for ever-growing success and advancement in every life area!
When we work in harmony with the law, everything in the universe helps us to reach what we desire. We can observe this in our own history.
Whenever people discovered more of these laws and followed them, bigger discoveries, industrial revolutions, technical innovations happened. In fact, many such successful people shared their wisdom and we know them today as visionaries, enlightened, very successful people.
Like Henry Ford with his most known quote:
“If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.”
This quote per se confirms the power of thinking! But there has never been an era like the current we’re living in, where the technological and scientific discoveries would be so numerous and would happen in such high frequency.
The last century or so has been the most intense and prolific in scientific and technological development. Do you know why?
Because in the last century people have started to consciously search for and study these laws. Lots of books have been written, conferences and seminars held, and a new industry has been born – personal development, self-improvement, self-study, self-awareness, mindfulness and similar. All this has contributed to understanding the laws and ourselves so that we can align our thoughts, feelings, and actions with the laws.
Higher faculties, remarkable talents, greater powers, and superior insights are dormant in all (i.e. these six faculties!). By psychological methods, these exceptional elements can be developed to an extraordinary degree for actual and practical use.
Every mind can develop greatness. There are no exceptions, absolutely none!
I can be great, you can be great, too. It’s just a matter of how: through self-help, self-discovery, self-knowledge and proper instructions for applying one’s principles and using one’s faculties and forces.
Doing so it will advance any person. The mind is perfect. Success is within the reach of every person.
Nobody ever said it was easy, you have to earn it. But it is a repeatable process available to anyone.
Do you really wish to succeed? If so, you have to gain the right understanding of all these laws and principles (that govern success) and then apply the right methods of operating them, until the success is earned.
I hope you have been inspired and motivated by these topics, and that you will come back for more. If you’d like to study these laws in-depth, you’re more than welcome to contact me. This article is just a nugget of many laws!
To your success!
