Train Your Mind to See Opportunity

November 8, 2013

No End To Opportunity

Here, lately, I’ve been hearing a lot about people who have gone to college, gained experience, and even put their dreams down on paper, only to fail in a big way.  Many of these people blame their failure on the lack of opportunities, in such a poor economy.  They believe that somehow college is their ticket to financial freedom, and all they have to do is wait for the right company to knock down their door.  No offense to educators, but college is hardly a ticket to anything financial, except more debt with student loans.

Colleges are a great place to gain specific knowledge for certain careers, but they don’t teach you how to become wealthy.  If they did, the world would have never heard of great multimillionaires like Bob Proctor who didn’t even make it through his first year in high school; and is one of the greatest personal growth speakers in the world.  He made his wealth through training his mind to become aware of opportunities, and then acting on them.

In the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker, he mentions that we live in four worlds; the emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical worlds.  He goes on to say that the physical world is nothing more than a printout of the other three.  In other words, nothing happens in the physical world without it first happening in the other three worlds.

I will try to put this in a different way.  Let’s just say that you dream of becoming the greatest guitarist in the world.  You don’t buy a guitar, take two lessons, then you’re ready to make your fortune.  You first have to focus on what you want to achieve, (begin with the end in mind), then devote your time, and energy into learning, and practicing for hours a day, until you become so good that you don’t have to think about what you’re doing; it just happens.  This is a great point to visualize your end, thereby training your mind to see your dream.

By focusing your mind, spirit, and emotions on your dreams, you are also strengthening your mind to become aware of opportunities in achieving your dream. There is no shortage of opportunities.  The more you train your mind, the more opportunities will present themselves, and the faster you can reach the life you want, and should have.

The Christmas spirit and a new years resolution

December 26, 2008

I have always loved the meaning of Christmas, and I could never get into the  commercialism of the season.  Working two retail jobs I have one solid month of pure insanity where I’m either dealing with irate customers, or trying to play catch up with all the video transfers that people require before Christmas, or their holiday season will be ruined.
Let me say that as far as work is concerned, I am relieved that Christmas is over.  I think I just got tired of people complaining over nothing important, and hearing about the things that make this time of the year stressful, instead of happy.  As far as the real meaning of Christmas, I can never get enough of that.  People giving of their time, talents, and hearts should be year round instead of one time a year.
Instead of making weight loss your new year resolution, or saving more money so you can buy another car to sit in the garage, which no one ever keeps anyway.  While weight loss and saving money are both important to your physical and financial health, they are both one sided, and only benefit one person.
Try making a resolution to do something nice, and helpful for someone else.  When I say do something nice and helpful, I’m not talking about giving money to charity, although if you have the money, you should feel free.  The kind of help I’m thinking of involves the simple things that make life just a little more bearable for someone who’s having a bad day.  Things like making irate customers laugh, or helping someone short reach something higher.  If you are doing something that makes a person’s day a little brighter without expecting some kind of payback, that is what the Christmas spirit is all about, and it’s the kind of thing that should continue throughout the year.
To all those who believe that a late order can ruin their Christmas, lighten up.  You need to reevaluate your priorities with Christmas.

Enjoy,
Allen
