The individual who only does enough work to get by seldom gets much more than “by.”

There is a cause-and-effect relationship between your actions and the rewards that accrue to you. When you put more of yourself into your career, your personal relationships, your religious faith, and any other aspect of your life, you get more out of it. If your ambitions are greater than simply “getting by” in life, you will never be truly happy with your company, your job, or yourself unless you do your best every day. Your harshest critic and your toughest competitor should be you.

..........
peace, love and joy to you

Your mental attitude determines what sort of friends you attract.

If you want to be a positive, successful person, be sure you choose your friends carefully.

Positive friends and role models will have a positive effect upon you, while negative friends will soon kill your initiative.

Do not allow yourself to be lulled into complacency by the masses who believe mediocrity is an acceptable alternative.

Focus on the possibilities for success, not the potential for failure.

When you doubt yourself, talk the situation over with a positive, supportive friend. Everyone needs a boost now and again; make sure your friends are positive, success-oriented people who always build you up, not negative thinkers who always seem to find a way to tear you down.

peace, love and joy to you

Your job will do no more for you than you do for it.

Any job contains opportunities for personal growth if you approach it as a positive learning experience. Just as every business is required to adapt to new technologies, new competitors, and countless other changes that routinely occur, so is every individual. If you are not learning and advancing in your job, you are stagnating and falling behind. It is impossible to stand still. View each day as an opportunity to learn something new, to improve yourself, and then do one thing better than you have ever done it before. In a dynamic organization, it is impossible to master every task; just when you think you have everything figured out, things change. Accept such changes as a necessary aspect of business, one that makes life interesting and exciting. You will find your job much more enjoyable when you do, and you will indeed find that it does more for you than you do for it.

You come finally to believe anything you tell yourself often enough — even if it is not true.

If you repeat something over and over to yourself, your subconscious mind will eventually begin to accept it as fact. When something has been accepted as truth by your subconscious mind, it will work overtime to transform the idea into physical reality. You can take advantage of this by programming your mind to think positive thoughts. Use self-motivators or affirmations to persuade your subconscious that you are capable of doing anything you wish. Repeat the self-motivator several times a day until it becomes an automatic reaction to recall a positive phrase whenever you begin to doubt yourself. Replace “I can’t” with “I will!”

I have been watching these videos.

In summary his message is that if you vividly imagine something falling asleep while doing it the imagined act will harden into fact (reality). - the video about the sister imagining her brother being released from hard labor in the military and coming home is an example

1. What do you want? - My brother to be released and come home walking in the front door.
2. What would you do say/do? I'd run down stairs and throw my arms around him and kiss him
3. How would your feel? wonderful

Live is as fact in your mind assume it as real, do not worry about the how or lift a finger to make it so.
--------
In another video a man has lost his lease on his store as it will be demolished for a new IBM building and he is paying too high a rent. His wife asks him what he wants - he starts to answer with how it can't happen, and the problems and she cuts him off "Don't tell me what you don't want tell me what you do want."

She gets him all the list of things - even if many seemed impossible.
----------
Neville cautions to do things only according to the Golden Rule
"what would I want if I were that person"
and include that you want it without harm to another.

You want to be a successful in the world of Ceasar?, a successful doctor, lawyer, trader? Nothing wrong with that.
Then formulate in your minds eye what it would be like, if it were true.
How would you see the world if you were now the man (the trader) you would like to be?
See it in your your minds eye.
Yield yourself completely to the deep of your being that vision
Fall asleep in that state completely abandoned to that assumption that it is fact.
I will wake tomorrow under compulsions
I will do this I will do that
It will externalize itself to that assumption, that fact I fell asleep to.

programming your mind to think positive thoughts

The key to all of this.

Programming people's works, obviously. Just look at things like the MSM, organized religion, the school system, etc.

Might as well take control and use mental programming to our own ends.

Do you know what you want? for yourself or for another?
Create a scene that would imply the fulfillment of your dream.
Enter into the scene just as though it were true.
Feel what it would feel like if it were true.
(Touch the objects in the scene.)
Give thanks to the one who would execute it. (which is your inner self who you are not aware of as yet.)
Fall asleep in the CONVICTION that things ARE as you desire them to be in CONFIDENCE that He (your inner self) will execute it .

The most interesting thing about a postage stamp is the persistence with which it sticks to its job.

The tiny, insignificant postage stamp is a good example of what it is possible to achieve if you stick with the job until it is finished. Inconspicuously stuck on the corner of the envelope, it provides the impetus to keep moving until the entire packet reaches its ultimate destination. The influence you may have upon your company, your church, your family, or any organization is incalculable if you have the persistence to pursue your goal until you achieve it. It is an absolute certainty that you will encounter obstacles in any worthwhile endeavor. When you do, remember the inconsequential little postage stamp and stick with the job until it is finished.

No matter how carefully you study a subject, no matter how rationally you make decisions, no matter how well prepared you are, you will occasionally make mistakes. Human beings always do. The important thing is to realize that temporary setbacks are not permanent failures. Successful people recognize that we all experience temporary setbacks that require us to reevaluate our performance and take corrective action to achieve success. They know that adversity is never permanent.

1. you must define the person you wish to be
2. then assume the feeling of your wish fufilled
3. in faith that that assumption will find expression through you.

The transformation of self requires that we meditate on a given phrase
(a phrase which implies our ideal is realized)
and inwardly affirm it over, and over, and over again.
Until we are inwardly affected by its implications, until we are possessed by it.

Hold fast to you noble inner convictions or conversation.
Nothing can take them from you but yourself.
Nothing can stop them from becoming objective facts.
All things are generated out of your imagination, by your inner conversation.
And every conversation reaps its own rewards which it has inwardly spoken.

For many years I have felt there were certain "knots" in my mind that were foiling my success.
I felt I kept shooting myself in the foot and snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
It has been like a terrible jinx (sp?).

In this video Neville explains that our past has not receded but lives with us in the now, recreating the same results over and over again.

If we are to get new results we must revise the past.
We go back and revise that letter, that interview, that accident
recreating it as we would have liked it to be as a real objective fact.
(actually changing the past).

Does it work?

I am going to put it to the test. I will give it a good try.
It may be the key to untying the "knots" that have been holding me back.

20. Imagining Creates Reality | The Secret of Causation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hfFcyxUK_4

"We cannot leave behind the mistakes of our past, The past still exists and it gives and still gives its result. Man must go back in memory, seek forth and destroy the causes of evil however far back they lie and replay the scene as it ought to have been played the first time. This is revision and revision causes repeal. Changing our lives means changing our past. The causes of present are unrevised scenes of the past.

The past and the present form the whole structure of man. It is carrying all of its contents with him. Any alteration of the content will cause an alteration in the present and the future. Live nobly so that you have a past worth of recall.

If you fail to so so remember the first act of alteration or cure is always revised.

The revised past will be re-created in the future."

So I have started working on this. I replay a scene from early childhood (connected with not deserving money/abundance) and rewrote the scene and replay it as I wish it would have been. It seems helpful and allows me to better enter a visualization of abundance.

There are historical meanings of names
There is the standard numerology of a name
and
there is a special branch of numerology done by the Kabalarians

To see the meaning of a name e.g.
https://www.kabalarians.com/male/John.htm
https://www.kabalarians.com/female/Hana.htm

(they will also email you a free PDF longer version analysis- I didn't go for this though)

Examine most carefully the things you desire most.

Far too many people spend more time planning their weekends than their lives. Then they suddenly realize that life has passed them by and they weren’t even aware it was happening. When you intently study what you most desire in life, you begin to focus your mind and concentrate your energy upon that which you wish to achieve. One of the great advantages of having a definite goal for your life is that it helps you prioritize your activities. When your major purpose is clear in your mind, it is unnecessary to analyze each individual situation. You know automatically whether your actions will move you toward your goal or away from it. You can then use all of your resources — time, money, and energy — to best advantage.

The size of your thoughts -
The size of your life


You will never be greater than the thoughts that dominate your mind.

If it’s true that you become what you think about most, it follows that the quantity and quality of success you achieve in your life will be in direct proportion to the size of your thoughts.

If you allow your mind to be dominated by trivial matters, your achievements are likely to be unimportant. Discipline yourself to think about important things. Keep up with what’s new in your field and with what’s going on in the world. Make a list of good ideas that you can use anytime you are searching for a creative solution to a problem. Remember, small minds think about things; great minds think about ideas.

The subconscious mind makes no moral judgments. If you tell yourself something over and over, your subconscious mind will eventually accept even the most blatant lie as fact. Those whose lives and careers have been destroyed by dishonest behavior began the process of self-destruction when they convinced themselves that one slight infraction of the rules wouldn’t matter.


When you sell yourself on an idea, make sure the idea is positive, beneficial to you, and harmless to others.

Just as negative thoughts and deeds return to their originator, so do positive ones. When you practice honest, ethical behavior, you set in motion a force for good that will return to you many times over.

The people who enjoy the greatest financial and personal success in life are those who build lasting relationships — with business associates, friends, co-workers, and others. They take the time and trouble to stay in touch, and they make sure that when someone does a good deed for them, they respond in kind. Build your network of personal and professional friends by taking the initiative and being a friend.

There’s an old adage that those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. So it is with our failures. Unless we learn from our mistakes, we are likely to repeat them until we learn from such experiences and correct our course — or give up and accept temporary defeat as permanent failure. Every setback you encounter in life contains valuable information that, if you study it carefully, will eventually lead you to success.

When you make a mistake, say, “That’s good! I’ve gotten that out of the way. I will never do that again.” You will no doubt make other mistakes, but they won’t bother you nearly as much when you treat them as learning experiences.

Without adversity, you would never develop wisdom, and without wisdom, success would be short-lived indeed.

Your own mental attitude is your real boss.

While your time and your labor may be subject to the demands of your employer and others, your mind is the one thing that cannot be controlled by anyone but you. The thoughts you think, your attitude toward your job, and what you are willing to give in exchange for the compensation you are paid are entirely up to you. It is up to you to determine whether you will be a slave to a negative attitude or the master of a positive one. Your attitude, your only master in life, is entirely within your control. When you control your attitude toward events, you control the eventual implication of those events.

I have been working with two Neville Goddard tapes.
One is on your mental conversation and the second on imagining to create reality.

The key from the first is creating an image-world of the result you want and live in it (in your mind). He says you must think FROM the scene not think OF the scene.
You must literally move into the scene in your mind hear touch smell feel all that you would feel if the scence was true.

I find this harder to do than to state.
It seems when I try to unpleasant memories come in and spoil it.

A key for me from the second tape is revising the past. He holds the past still exists in our present and to change the present we must change our past.
You do this by going back and replaying the event as it should have been played - the letter written, the job interview, an accident, etc

However I'm not giving up - its a work in progress.

BTW after you listen to a youtube you can right-click on it and save it to your drive for off-line viewing as a webm extension.

The world stands aside and makes room for the person who knows where he is going and is on his way.

When you have a vision for what you wish to achieve in your life, not only will others stand aside and let you pass, but they will join you in your quest as well. They will instinctively recognize your enthusiasm and zest for living. When you speak of your passion in life, your definite major goal, they will see the intensity of your desire, and they will respond with encouragement and assistance or they will stand aside. It will be apparent to all who know you that you will succeed.

Knowledge is an important component of success in any field. To accomplish anything worthwhile often requires years of study. But knowledge alone is not power; it becomes powerful only when it is applied through positive action. Study after study of successful people reveals that they have a bias for action. They gather the appropriate facts, relate them to their knowledge about the subject, develop an implementation plan, and then get into action. When in doubt, it’s far better to act too soon rather than too late.

Thomas Edison once observed that the reason most folks don’t recognize opportunity when it comes along is that it is often dressed in coveralls and look like work. Often opportunity involves a great deal of work and a willingness to take a chance on something, the outcome of which may be uncertain. Eventually you reach a point when you must either accept an opportunity with all of its unknowns or else turn your back on it. No one can tell you when you have reached that point; you alone know when it’s time to make your move, to have the courage to take a chance.

If you are ever to achieve noteworthy success in your life, you must be willing to stand apart from the crowd. Success is something that is achieved by the minority, not the majority, of people. You will also discover as you climb the ladder of success that there are many who, out of jealousy or envy, will belittle your achievements. Nevertheless, if you have the courage of your convictions, nothing can deter you from your course. You develop confidence in your beliefs by doing your own thinking and by constantly testing and revising your knowledge. Use W. Clement Stone’s R2A2 Principle to Recognize and Relate, Assimilate and Apply information from any field to help solve your problems and direct your thinking.

The individual with a negative mental attitude attracts troubles as a magnet attracts steel filings.

It is a curious fact of nature that somehow our minds find a way to transform into physical reality the things we think about most. If you expect to fail, you can be sure that you will, and if you find something negative in every opportunity, nothing will ever work out positively for you. Fortunately, the reverse is also true. If you are a happy, positive person, you will attract positive things. You can keep your mindset positive by eliminating negative thoughts the moment they begin to creep into your conscious mind. If you dwell on the negative aspects of every opportunity, you will never accomplish anything worthwhile. Be prudent about the risks you take, but don’t be paralyzed by fear of failure.

Wally Amos, the man whom many consider to be the father of the gourmet cookie industry, has turned lemons into lemonade so often in his life that in his official portrait he holds a pitcher in one hand and a glass of lemonade in the other. A perennial optimist, Amos refuses to acknowledge that obstacles are anything other than stepping-stones to success. In a career that has spanned several decades, he has made it to the pinnacle of success several times, only to lose everything and be forced to start over. But he’s never lost faith. “You have to have the trust and faith to let go and not agonize,” he says. “Don’t waste your time worrying. Worry is not preparation. Analyze the situation and focus on solutions. There is always an answer.”

If life hands you a lemon, don’t complain, but instead make lemonade to sell to those who are thirsty from complaining.

A Positive Mental Attitude is not developed in a single decision to replace negative thoughts with their positive equivalent. It is a sustained commitment that requires personal discipline, the same kind of discipline that is required to stay in shape and maintain your physical health. It is a commitment that must be reinforced daily, or it is soon forgotten and cast upon the scrap heap of good intentions. When you take charge of your fate and determine that you will live positively in every aspect of your life — physical and mental — you will receive an extra benefit. Positive physical conditioning will reinforce your Positive Mental Attitude, and your positive attitude will help you stay in better physical condition.

If you haven’t the willpower to keep your physical body in repair, you also lack the power of will to maintain a positive mental attitude in other important circumstances that control your life.

t is true that people are generally forgiving and will overlook an occasional failure to deliver upon your promises. Ultimately, though, you must live up to your promises to others if you ever expect to make a lasting impression on them. Make it a habit to demonstrate your abilities before talking about them. Seldom is anything worthwhile achieved without the help of others, and nothing is ever achieved without some form of action. The road to failure and despair is littered with the dreams of those who failed to act upon them.

Those who will not take a chance seldom have one thrust upon them.

Success always involves risk. You must take a chance by investing your time, money, and effort. It pays to be thoughtful and deliberate in your analyses of opportunities, but don’t let timidity hold you back. Because you have worked hard to develop those things you must risk, it is natural for you to place a high value on them. But what good are they if you do not put them to use? You will recognize opportunity only to the extent that you are willing to consider risking your time, money, and effort. Being confident gives you the courage to face risk and act when opportunity arises. No one on earth is going to force success upon you; you will find it only to the degree that you actively seek it out.

Neville Goddard - Manifest Your Reality Through Mental Conversation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npfuDY7sfNI

15:15
The transformation of self requires that we mediate on a given phase, a phrase which implies our ideal is realized.
And inwardly affirm it over and over and over again, until we are inwardly affected by its implications, until we are possessed by it.


Note the parallel to Bob Proctors goal card where you write down your goal and read it over and over and over again until it sinks into being and you are emotively effected by it.

When you ask another person to do something, it may help both him and you if you tell him what to do, why he should do it, when he should do it, where he should do it, and how he may best do it.

We are all influenced by our background and experience. We perceive instructions in the context of our education, experience, heritage, the culture of our organization, and a number of other variables. Good managers know this, and they make sure that their instructions are clear, concise, and well understood. They also know that they must walk a fine line between conveying adequate instructions and killing workers’ incentive by not allowing them sufficient latitude to do their jobs. You may strike the right balance between instruction and motivation by encouraging employees to participate in setting objectives for themselves and their teams, by helping them develop plans for achieving their goals, and by making sure that each individual clearly understands the team’s mission and his or her role in achieving it. Suggest that team members check in occasionally to report their progress, then get out of their way and cheer them on to victory.

Friendship needs frequent expression to remain alive.

We are all human, with frailties, foibles, and insecurities. We each need to be appreciated for the uniqueness that makes us individual, and we need to be told that we are appreciated. Maintaining friendships requires effort and persistent expression, both in word and deed. Tell your friends often how much you appreciate them. Remember occasions that are important to them. Congratulate them upon their achievements. Most important of all, let them know that you are there for them whenever they need you.

Your mental attitude is the most dependable key to your personality.

Your view of yourself will greatly influence how others perceive you. If you are a confident, cheerful, positive person, your co-workers, friends, and family will be attracted to your personality. If you are unhappy, negative, and always complaining about your situation, others will be repelled. Even when at times you don’t feel very happy, by forcing yourself to behave in a positive fashion, you will find that you soon feel genuinely upbeat, because your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between an artificial emotion and the real thing. When you behave positively, you will positively influence everyone around you — including yourself.

In almost any vocation, profession, or calling, your remuneration is directly proportional to the responsibility that accompanies your position. Make it a practice to volunteer for more responsibility or simply to assume it. There are times when you must get on with the task at hand without ever being formally told you’re in charge of it. If you demonstrate that you are a can-do kind of person, responsibility and the higher pay that accompanies it will come to you.

You become a person who does the right things when presented with great opportunities the same way you achieve success at anything: through force of habit. If you make it a practice to take the appropriate action even when it seems unimportant and insignificant, you will do the right thing — without thinking — in important situations.

Faith is a combination of thoughts and actions.

When you apply your faith in yourself, your faith in your fellow man, and your faith in God, the result is a positive course of action that when persistently followed will almost always lead to success. When you believe in your ideas and in your abilities, and you trust in the Infinite Intelligence of the universe, you know that your thoughts and deeds will ultimately lead to a successful conclusion. You cannot fail.

Failure is a blessing when it pushes us out of a cushioned seat of self-satisfaction and forces us to do something useful.

If you carefully study your own life and those of achievers whom you admire, it is an absolute certainty you will discover that your greatest opportunities often occurred during times of adversity. It is only when faced with the possibility of failure that we are willing to deal with radical change and take the risks that lead to great success. When you experience temporary failure and you know that it is temporary, you can capitalize on the opportunities adversity always brings.

Some individuals appear to be “allergic” to honest work, but opportunity is equally allergic to them.

In any business, profession, or occupation, there comes a time when you have to deliver. You may fake it for a time, pretending that you’re giving an honest effort, but eventually you will be measured by your deeds, not by your words. If you are more of a talker than a doer, make a vow today — right now — to change your behavior. You may be able to drift through life if you never do more than you are required to do, but you will never know what you might have achieved if you had only been willing to give a little more. The greatest opportunities always go to those who have an affinity for hard work, not an allergy to it.

There are many things you cannot control, but you can control the only things that really matter: your mind and your attitude. External forces have very little to do with success. Those who program themselves for success find a way to succeed even in the most difficult of circumstances. Solutions to most problems come from one source and one source alone: yourself. Living life to the fullest is a lot like shooting the rapids in a rubber raft. Once you’ve made the commitment, it’s difficult to change your mind, turn around, and paddle upstream to placid waters. But it’s the excitement and adventure that make it all worthwhile. If you never make the attempt, you may never know the depths of despair, but neither will you experience the exhilaration of success.

Thanks Johnny. Yes you are right.

When we need to change, first the universe whispers and if we don't respond, it knocks softly, then more loudly, and finally takes out a baseball bat.

Our openness to hear the "soft whispers" (intuitive nudges) allow us to flow more freely and see the open door and which is right for us.

Throughout this philosophy will be found the suggestion that thought, backed by strong desire, has a tendency to transmute itself into its physical equivalent.

You can think your way into or out of almost any circumstance, good or bad.

No action takes place unless it is preceded by thought. If you’re unhappy with the circumstances in which you find yourself, you can improve your situation through the power of thought, just as surely as you can destroy a positive life with negative thinking. Success begins with an honest analysis of your present condition, acceptance of responsibility for your own life, and the development of a workable plan to achieve what you desire.

It is a natural human reaction for you to wish to correct others when you see them making a mistake or doing something differently than you would have done it.

It is far more difficult to control the impulse to show them how much more intelligent you are.

The ability to recognize and control such impulses marks the beginning of the development of wisdom. A wise person knows that when he shows his intelligence with the actions he takes, others learn a far more valuable and lasting lesson.

If you see someone who could benefit from your advice, you can gently lead him to a more appropriate conclusion by asking open-ended, nonjudgmental questions.

Let others find the flaws in their reasoning by leading them logically through the process. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil.”

Of all the negative emotions, envy is perhaps the most insidious. It is especially sinister because it destroys you from the inside by replacing all that is positive and productive with negative feelings of anger, jealousy, and despair.

But when you congratulate others upon their successes and genuinely wish them well, not only do you give credit to those who deserve it, but you also feel better about yourself. Once you’ve overcome your envy, you may want to determine what specific actions the other person took to achieve success. Meanwhile, you will have strengthened your relationships by recognizing the achievements of others.

I have been having issues trying to visualize myself emersed in large success and I am wondering if this has to do with the lack of realistic positivity and practicality or too many negative thoughts that this may be too of a big accomplishment and in turn it becoming the predominant thought and perhaps living that thought.

Try this visualize yourself succeeding in small goals,which you can easily achieve.
Then try little medium size goal,then big goals.
It Step by step process.
You have trouble visualizing big success if start to visualize large before small.

In other words, enjoy the process and journey as it happens. I need to be more grateful for what I have achieved and worry less about what I have not by comparing to others. It is always the comparison and the lack of physically seeing the results that leads to thinking about negative side of it.

Constancy of purpose is the first principle of success.

It is critical to your success that you have a well-thought-out plan for your life and that you stick with it regardless of what others may say and the obstacles you encounter. There will always be fault-finders and those who attempt to persuade you that your goals aren’t worth the effort you put into achieving them. Those people will never go far, and they will be the first to ask for your help after you have passed them by. Virtually every successful person has considered giving up at some point in his or her struggle to reach the top. And many breakthroughs occurred soon after those same people rededicated themselves to their purpose. There is no known obstacle that cannot be overcome by a person who has constancy of purpose, a Positive Mental Attitude, and the discipline and willpower to succeed.


------------ my thoughts ---------------

[I think this is VERY important. Phrased another way:
There are obstacles/difficulties/setbacks in life and they are part of the learning and growing process. Like weights in a gym you cannot grow without them.

When you see them as helpful things you need - just as a gym with no weights isn't much good - you can start to accept and even welcome them.

Yet this is only part of the story. You also need a vision and goal and one that is consistent.

You must see the body you are working towards in your mind's eye. You must visualize it. And then keep working towards it, despite setbacks (sore muscles, closed gym plateau in your progress, negative comments from others "you can't do that your body type is wrong, you started too late, you need to take steroids, who do you think you are to aim for a perfect body, well you've been at it 4 weeks if you aren't there yet you'll never get there, and so on...")

If you persist, with a plan, with a vision, with faith in your ultimate success, intelligently and diligently, you will, (perhaps must) reach your goal.

20. Imagining Creates Reality | The Secret of Causation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hfFcyxUK_4

5:11
"But whenever one state grows more stable to become our constant mood, our habitual attitude, then that habitual state defines our character, and is a true transformation."


----------------my thoughts ---

So we need to create a new habit.

Habits are created through repetition. We create a habit of a new mood, that of success, by repeatedly entering into that state in our imagination and spending time living in that imagined state/reality.

By doing so we repeatedly create and experience the mood of success - until success becomes our habitual attitude.

I suspect this is more common than many admit to.
There may be several reasons or a combination of them.

1. Feeling we deserve success/abundance.
Neville recommends "revising the past" replaying the past as it should have been played (e.g. childhood experiences around money, success, abundance etc)

2. Confusing the current external reality (a reflection of past thoughts) with our capabilities of the future we can create - which is what we can envision. This is hard to overcome because the majority of people can only conceive our current state and a small extension of it as our future state. This works against our imagining because their thoughts impinge upon us.

3. Spending enough time with the envisioning each day and invoking the correct feeling.

Bob Procter recommends a huge amount of repetition - hundreds of times a day saying
"I am now so happy and grateful .... our goal ..."

Napoleon Hill recommends that we write out our statement of success and read it morning upon awakening and evening before retiring - at a minimum.

Keep at it!

Decisions

People who fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, if at all, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often.

The great secret of success is a control inner conversation from fallacies of fulfilled desire. The only price you pay for success is the giving up up your former conversation, which belongs to the old man, the unsuccessful man. The time is right for many of us to take conscious charge of creating heaven on earth.

Try telling your boss about the things you like, and see how willingly he or she will help you get rid of the things you don’t like.

In recent years, great strides have been made in overcoming the traditional adversarial relationship between workers and bosses. At last we’re learning that when we focus on better serving our clients and customers, everybody wins. When you begin to focus on what’s good in your company instead of what you don’t like, you will be amazed how quickly you will have more responsibility, and soon you will be teaching your employees how to do your old job.

Translation

I came up with an idea for "translation" of a concept. For example, I know a lot about fitness and health so I would take a truth from that area and "translate" it into another "language" eg a spiritual concept. I don't work at a company so the above doesn't apply to me - but I do trade - so here is "translating" the phrase to what does apply to me.

From today:

Quoting 
"When you begin to focus on what’s good in your company instead of what you don’t like, you will be amazed how quickly you will have more responsibility, and soon you will be teaching your employees how to do your old job."

company => trading
you don’t like => isn't successful
more responsibility => vastly better trading system
be teaching your employees how to do your old job => trading at whole new level of success

Tip
"When you begin to focus on what’s good in your trading instead of what isn't successful, you will be amazed how quickly you will have vastly better trading system, and soon you will trading at whole new level of success."

Condensed summary of Think and Grow Rich by Earl Nightingale
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AL8NzjAkBKM

Thirteen Principles

1. Desire

2.Faith (min 10:10)
  • You would have never have thought of your main desire unless faith was tugging at your mind.
  • Though you may lose faith in yourself you can be certain you can have faith in these principles
  • By getting a mental image of yourself having accomplished your desire - over and over again - you will muster the faith you need.

I am looking for people to share their visualizations of abundance.

What visualizations to you use when you see yourself being materially abundant?
How do you color these visualizations with emotion?
Do you include a visualizatioin of yourself trading with ease and perfection?

Other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I'm the weird duck. Nothing money can buy or allow me to do is important in life to me. That don't mean I'm going to give it away. I grew up poor, where if we didn't grow it or kill it we didn't eat. To me it's nothing more than a security not really a visual thing.

That video was a nice reminder. An uncle once told me" your not going to make a million hanging around people who flip burgers at McDonald's."
I never had any friends that worked there an that wasn't his point. The point was the people you hang with or talk to will pick you up or drag you down with them.

That is true, I think, to a certain extent.

I believe that the degree to which you let other people pick you up or drag you down depends on how centered you are.

You can still empathize/sympathize for some of your friends who one day may get stuck into a mental loop, or find themselves blaming others for everything, but that does not necessarily mean you too will be like them.

No civilization based upon the unjust treatment of its people has ever endured. A tyrant may force the cooperation of others for a time, but that power is never sustained. Only when people are accorded the respect they deserve do they willingly create and maintain successful organizations and societies. When you build a company or an organization based on fairness and justice for every member, you have built a power that will long endure. The best way to secure the commitment and unending cooperation of others is through the simple application of the Golden Rule. It is the most successful and long-lasting management theory ever developed. When you treat others as you would like to be treated were you in their situation, you will inspire loyalty and enthusiastic cooperation. Set high standards for yourself and others, treat them well, let them do their jobs, and they will perform miracles for you.

Movie producer Michael Todd once said, “Being broke is temporary; being poor is a state of mind.” So it is with opportunity. Whether you see opportunities or limitations is entirely within your control. How you view the world is a reflection of your mental attitude. If you focus on your inadequacies, you will be plagued by fear, doubt, and failure, but when you focus on your strengths, you will find courage, confidence, and success. Self-confidence can replace self-doubt only by deliberate, planned effort. When you start to doubt your capabilities, pause to review your previous accomplishments. Identify every experience that might be helpful to you in your present situation. When you apply the knowledge and wisdom you have accumulated, there are few limitations that you cannot overcome.

from prior post:
“Being broke is temporary; being poor is a state of mind.”

Recently I have been discussing visualization with an on-line friend.

I reviewed some of this thread and there was the Andy Dooley Vortex visualization (dollars floating down from the sky). As the beginning of the visualization he comments - it is the feeling that abundance will give you that you are after - security, freedom etc. And in another he says "It is feeling first, and then actualization second."

In several videos on-line self-help gurus say: "If a wealthy person loses his wealth he can soon regain it for he has the wealth consciousness needed to create it."

Several millionaires went broke a few times on their way to great fortunes.

In a recent Arnold video he speaks of the building of self-confidence. A little trophy, a little success, can help build one to a bigger success and greater confidence.

Confidence in one's abilities, in one's strengths, in oneself, are in part building the feeling of success and so in practicing the feeling of abundance in our minds with are building our confidence in our ability to create that for ourselves.

This is why visualizations around the target, or final visualization are helpful.
Little exercises - either recalling a past example or creating a new one - that invoke the feeling are helpful.

next..
Examples of "small" visualizations to practice the feeling

Confidence in one's abilities, in one's strengths, in oneself, are in part building the feeling of success and so in practicing the feeling of abundance in our minds with are building our confidence in our ability to create that for ourselves.

This is why visualizations around the target, or final visualization are helpful.
Little exercises - either recalling a past example or creating a new one - that invoke the feeling are helpful.

next..
Examples of "small" visualizations to practice the feeling

Waiting to hear on this

Freedom, fun, exhilaration

You are skiing down a mountain slope. The day is perfect, sunny and not too cold.
The hill is in great conditions, freshly groomed, a light coating of power and not icy.
You are in the zone and skiing without effort, gliding, carving timing great turns - gilding to the end tossing a spray of snow and skiing straight into the chair - for there are no line-ups!

Abundance

Morey has been tight but a big paycheck has come in. You've been on a diet of day-old bread and endless second cups of coffee at Smitty's. You haven't had a good meal in a week.

You order a 16oz Alberta T-bone steak, baked potatoes with sour cream and butter, veg the works. You polish off a couple of Zombies and order apple pie with ice cream for dessert. You devour you meal - everything is delicious!.
You order a Grand Marnier and coffee loosen your belt a notch and savour the full feeling of the best meal you've every had!

Safety and Security

You are on a small, beautiful pristine lake ringed by wooded mountains in your little sailing dingy. It is a beautiful summer day, warm but not too hot with a soft breeze blowing. Lying back against the smooth varnished wood of the hull you hear the soothing beat of the wavelets against the boat. Above you puffy little white clouds float by against a beautiful blue sky. All is fine in your little world and you and nature are in perfect harmony.

..........
peace, love and joy to you

For that feeling of abundance....I have read (perhaps from Leonard Orr) that it helps to always carry 3 or 4 (or so) $100 dollar bills around in your wallet.

Each of us has a finite amount of time, energy, and money; you must choose for yourself how you will spend them. If you elect to squander your resources by demeaning others in an attempt to advance your own interests, you will soon find that so much of your time and energy has been spent on gossip and slander that you have little time left for yourself. If you deal in malicious information, you’ll rarely be trusted. As the saying goes, “Those who talk about others to us will talk about us to others.”

A great idea Marin!

It's good also to have your vision goal statement in your wallet
so each time you open it you not only see the bills you also see your vision goal statement

e.g.
"I am so happy and grateful that I now have $x million" - 1 January 2018

20. Imagining Creates Reality | The Secret of Causation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hfFcyxUK_4


9;09
"if a person enters inot the image and is thinking from it, then he would know what it is to be creatively transformative.
Every image can be embodied, but unless man enters it and thinks from it it is incapable of birth.
That which requires imaginative occupacy to produce its effect, obiviously cannot produce its effect, without such occupancy.
We cannot be in one image and not suffer the consequences of not being in another."

----------
So if we are in the image of a failed trade we cannot be in the image of a successful trade. If we are thinking of a failed trade, re-living it in our memory, we are practising re-creating that failed trade (or missed trade). We must go back in our minds and re-create the trade as a successful trade, being in a living from the image of a successful trade. We must see ourselves executing the trade perfectly with all the sensory vividness we can generate. We must see what we would see, feel what we would feel, and say what we would say, over and over again

Change your mental attitude, and the world around you will change accordingly.

Your world will become what you choose to make it. You can reach great heights of success

When you choose a positive course, you set in motion an unstoppable force that will allow you to have a fulfilling career, the love of your family and friends, good physical and mental health, and all of the other true riches of life. To change your world, you must change it from the inside out. You must begin with yourself. When you choose the course that puts your life on a positive track, you will change your life for the better, and you will also positively influence the people with whom you come in contact.

This is by far the most powerful tool one can use on a daily basis to make something out of nothing, good out of bad, and riches out of poverty. Once you can live this, share in the same way.

Welcome aboard!

I hope you decide to post some quotes or thoughts as you go along.
Sometimes just saying:
  • I like this because...
  • I've found this works..
  • Perhaps this idea could be used in...
Can be of service to other readers.

It is about how to move the theory into reality and reshape our lives to what we would envision them to be.

As you go along if you find something that you feel was good .. please that a moment to update the Table of Contents on the first page..
(this request is to all readers!!)

The stronger we make it and the more easily we can find information the more service it is to all of us and those who join along the path.

peace, love and joy to you

At the top right hand corner of every post is the word
(permalink)

if you put your cursor over it and right-click you will get a drop-down menu with a list of choices one of which is
Copy link location



selecting this puts the link in your clipboard (memory)
and then edit paste (Cntrl+V) will paste it


You can add a title and copy and paste both to the Table of Contents

thanks!

Back to the Future

I think sometimes we have the vision too close-up (in our timeline).

Let's say the timeline is:
------- Past -----------
early childhood
youth
schooling
job1
job2
etc
past trading experience
------past -------

------present-------
-trying to make a wonderful trading income
$5,0000
hit and miss trading
------present-------

------future-------
$10,000
$50,000
$100,000
$500,000
$1,000,000
$20,000,000

------- "Final" goal1 ---------
buy a wonderful home
health goals
wonderful family/relationships
wonderful experiences/traveling etc
service to the globe and humanity
------- "Final" goal1 ---------

---------next goal -legacy achievements & contributions ----------
Bringing great inventions into being to better the planet
creating foundations for good for the environment and people
writing a great piece of literature or spiritual growth
etc.
--------next goal ---------

================ looking from "Final" goal 1 ====== Back to the Future ====

Our vision can be 10 years after we got there -with the home, family, investment nest-egg etc.
Your can imagine yourself with your wonderful friends, family, home etc looking forward and materializing your next level - contribution goals. You are safe. Your money wasn't stolen. You're brokerage account didn't go bankrupt. You have made it - and that was 10 years ago.

A reporter is in your beautiful home and after some pleasantries with him marveling at the beauty around him, - how fit you are, what a gorgeous family you have, wonderful lifestyle and so on
he asks:
"My readers are very interested in how you took $5,000 and transformed it into a vast fortune, against all odds and all dis-believers. Can you tell us of your journey?"

peace, love and joy to you

@aquarian1 As this speaks to me vastly on every dimension, the key takeaway here is extremely powerful. As much as I already know this consciously, I am too busy allowing the subconscious flood me with thoughts after thoughts of what is counter intuitive to being present and actioning on your fear. I appreciate your effort in bringing awareness to this community.

I think you have highlighted a very important point.

There is a VAST difference between intellectual/conscious mind understanding and
intuitive being/knowing knowledge.

This I see as the real challenge. How do we move from reacting to the world of external sensory input and start to build inner intuitive knowing that can be proactive and creative?

(Versus being reactive and maintaining our Old world, the "Unsuccessful Man", that we wish to discard) ?

No other person can make you successful or keep you from achieving your goals. Taking the initiative means assuming a leadership role, a position that singles you out for praise — and for criticism. The good leader is the one who shares the credit for success with others and assumes full responsibility for failures or temporary setbacks. When you accept responsibility for your actions, you gain the respect of others and are well on the way to creating your own future.

10:01 .. to be transformed in mind is to be transformed in conversation.
10:31 A change of speech is a change of mind.

(speech, conversation = inner talking, inner conversation)
21. Manifest Your Reality Through Mental Conversation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npfuDY7sfNI


-----------
To hold new images in our minds we must hold new inner conversations.

Tip
I have found the it is sometimes helpful in visualizations to have a linked key phrase, e.g.
"See the Abundance"



When I say the phrase it keys me to a "pre-recorded" visualization and links to the first scene:

I am in the living room of my home. It is beautifully designed with a huge vaulted ceiling and interior ornate pillars made of jade and inlaid with lapis-lazu and gold forming a swirling vine and leaf motif spiraling around the pillars. I put my hand upon them and feel the smooth cool touch of the stone.

The front of the living room is glass panels reaching to the ceiling. I step up to the double doors put my hand on the round brass door knobs, push them open and step out onto the large stone patio which forms a semicircle covering the front edge of the house. I walk to the edge and lean upon the stone patio railing and graze out at the beautiful view. Below stretches a descent covered in beautiful red flowering hibiscus. Then after the descent, there is the tropical forest. And future out is the shimmering blue of the ocean about a mile in the distance and 1,000 feet below. I take a deep breath of the pure clean morning air and soak in the immense beauty of the scene.

.etc...

Tip
So you start with one scene and then it links to the next and the next. Your "keying phrase" you write on a card, read it and close your eyes and start the visualization include yourself moving about the scene, touching objects, and seeing things and feeling things.

peace, love and joy to you
