“Accurate Thinking”

Of the 17 Laws of Success that Napoleon Hill wrote about, the number one law most people overlook is “Accurate Thinking.”  The major reason for this becomes apparent when you begin to study human behavior.  “Accurate Thinking”  can only be accomplished if one is to learn to think accurately.  Not only are most individuals never taught how to do this, their egos actually resist having to make this personal change.  The average adult has a very difficult time accepting the idea that they don't think accurately.  Interestingly enough, the more education and success they have managed for themselves the more ego that is usually built up and the more they resist these ideas.

I have witnessed many people who have paid for an expensive education (attaining various levels of success) meet terrible trouble once they are on their own in an entrepreneurial venture.  The reasons for this are often explained by the entrepreneur pointing out what “circumstance” brought down his/her business.

With the EGO in control they hold tightly to their story and continue their downward spiral until they either change or become so frustrated and overwhelmed they quit.  What's fascinating is another person can experience the same OR WORSE set of circumstances and not only does is not bring down their business, but it's used as a launching pad for even greater success.

When you break from the bondage of an employer and decide to follow your own path, you must understand that your success depends on a completely different set of rules than you played by before.  The new path that you are on is filled with new decisions and the way you make these new decisions must come from this new form of “Accurate Thinking.”  Prior to this, your decision making process was almost entirely based on weighing facts and circumstances ONLY and then making seemingly logical decisions based on prior knowledge.  This knowledge came from the rules you had previously been told as truths for your life.

One of the most troublesome decisions a person must make is when money is involved.  Usually it is the lack of money that is the problem.  It looks something like this:

The lack (or limit) of money a person has in their possession is a hard fact to them.  Yet they are attempting to follow their dream and whenever a person does this they are met with various opportunities that are essential to the fulfillment of the dream.  What is not understood is each opportunity requires the person to step into an uncomfortable place and overcome whatever challenge keeps pressing their situation.  In all cases, you are presented with the same challenge, though it may appear to come in different forms. If you look closely you will see the core of the problem is the same.

When the problem is money and it controls your decisions, you are not following the spirit within you, rather you are following a limited situation BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO OVERCOME THE SITUATION.  This requires a new kind of thinking –  “Accurate Thinking.”  To acquire “Accurate Thinking,” you must learn not only the concepts behind it, but you must experience it and integrate it into who you are as a person.  Now ask yourself this very important question.  When opportunity to advance  comes your way what is the underlying cause of your decision to either do it or not do it?  The universe will give you whatever you ask for but if you ask from a place of lack you will never get what you want or need.  The success you want is real, the wealth you desire is really here for you and everything you need to help bridge the gap between where you are right now and where you want to go is being presented to you everyday.  If you are thinking accurately you will see it.

The Secret Land of Success…

Many people come knocking at its door but few ever enter.  The land of success does exist but it's a funny thing trying to enter it.  I tried for many years, but nothing happened.

It's as if the pull or the draw to the door of success is very seductive.  It lures you, coaxes and tempts you towards it.  It says, “Come and enter this new land that is waiting for YOU!  Just turn the knob and step in.”  It would be so easy, but as we get close to the door, uncertainty of what is really on the other side creeps in like a lurking shadow from a dark alley around your mind.  It takes on an imaginary perception.

There are rules for success (otherwise known as laws), and many who have entered this Secret Land have told others about the laws.  Without fail, many who desire to enter and hear the laws are not willing to follow them.  They often want to change those laws to fit their own uncertainties and twisted ideals of what success should require.

FACT: Success does not care what you think of its laws, & it is not going to change them any time soon.

You must be willing to embrace the laws or remain on the outside of this Secret Land called SUCCESS.

One of the first Truths of Success is that you must let go of the THINGS that you cling to the most.  We must release the things we find security in, such as money, time, poor relationships and false jobs.  Each person has a vast amount of success inside, something they could be sharing with the world that would give them great satisfaction.  Something that would enrich the lives of other human beings.  Each person includes YOU!

If you understand at all you have to admit that something is pulling at your heart.  There is something inside you that wants to come out – if only you would just let go!

Of course there are the many trappings of adult life that you have created that seem like real boundaries to your success.  These include the responsibilities you have created for yourself out of your own ignorance, however they are nothing but illusions that begin to disappear once you make a committed decision to move forward on your dream.

Actually the Land of Success and most of what it requires to enter it was with you at birth.

Real Secret: Most of what you have been taught about the world is nothing but lies and fables designed to control you (which up until now has worked pretty well).

There is a reason you are reading this…

There's a very good reason it has come into your life at this time.  The question remains, “Do you grasp the reason why?   What have you put on hold?  What haven't you explored?  What is deep in your heart?  Who do you really love?   Do you acknowledge these things in your life?”  You should because this thing called life is not a practice run.  You are in the real game.  You step forward and really play.  The door is in front of you – come on in, we're waiting!

The Laws of Success

Everywhere I go people ask me questions about whether or not it is right for them to ask for more.

“David, is to okay for me to want to be more, do more and have more?”

They also think on some level if things don't work out and what is wanted is not achieved, then there must be some force in the Universe working against them, or the timing is not right for what they want.

I would like to add a bit of perspective from my own experience and the ideas of Raymond Holliwell, author of The Laws of Success.

One of the most difficult concepts for people to grasp is the power that lies within themselves to create.

I recently returned from my ERS seminar in Vegas where I taught people how to literally manifest money.  Each person started with nothing, and by following very specific laws they learned how to create money right in their very hands.

People typically have a difficult time understanding how serious I am about their ability to manifest money, but the outcome is phenomenal. Most attendees become very emotional about what they have learned to do, and they realize their lives have just changed forever.

Holliwell put it this way:

“The principle explains that no desire is felt until the supply is ready to appear.  No mind can be conscious of a need or a desire unless the possibility of its fulfillment exists.”

Do you know how powerful that makes you?

You cannot ask too much of the Law, for it is unlimited and the supply is inexhaustible.

You can get only what you can conceive – what you can understand.  You can only get the equivalent to what you give.

It is critical you study and learn from the right people.  All of your success will come in the form of an opportunity, and you must give something in exchange for each opportunity.  If you step back in fear you lose.  That is the law.

Remember…you have attracted everything and everyone into your life for a purpose, which is to move you into being what you want to be.

Belief, Perception & Reality…

I just had a great conversation with a friend who was telling me about some business associates who have had a complete turn around on their dream.

A few months ago, they were enthusiastic and on fire for their future. Unfortunately, they didn't keep their  mental doors locked and something negative slipped in.

All failure begins this way. People have wonderful hopes for their dreams and goals, and when their circumstances suggest something different, (such as an obstacle or lack of result)  the perceived difference becomes the initial seed of failure.

Being unaware of how this process destroys the dreams of countless people, they fall victim to its seduction.

Take a look at what happens and how this process works:

We all have two parts in our thinking – one is our dream or goal, and the second is the belief that it might not happen. This is where most people start out.

Next, something begins to spark them into moving on the dream, and they take some sort of action for a period of time.

Not having a full understanding of the Laws of Success, they are actually moving in the direction of their dream with a great deal of ignorance. Ignorance is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as a person stays open to what he/she must learn along the way.  The problem is many individuals are not open to growth & change.  They experience a point of failure.

This is the point in their journey where moving forward becomes to painful or fearful, and a person usually chooses to stay safe.  Being unaware of how success works, it is also the point where if a person did move forward, they would begin to see the bigger win they are hoping for.

Your beliefs control your perception of everything in your world, which in turn creates your reality.  If you want to change your reality you must use new information to change your beliefs AND your perception. Until you see things differently, you will continue to makes choices that keep you where you are.  Eventually, you will give up on your dreams.

Hey – in my opinion, if you are not living life on the edge you are taking up too much room.

Have a great week because you deserve it!!
