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 Sleeper Awakens!!!

August 19, 2013

the problem

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  I have no excuses, so I won’t offer any.  My past blog posts seemed to be lacking in direction, and I felt that was a direct reflection of my life.  I am reminded of a quote from the movie Dune, “There is something inside each of us… The sleeper must awaken.”

The talents that I was been given have been lying dormant somewhere in a locked room of my spirit, only to pop its head out once in a while, like a groundhog does every two weeks during winter, to test the weather.  The only thing I needed to wake up my talents was a proper alarm clock.

My talents are still a lot groggy, but they are awake, and just starting to move around.  You may ask what I used for an alarm clock.  I watched a DVD by the name of The Secret, and for those of you who have never heard of it, it is a documentary about the law of attraction, and how to use it for success in every area of life.

Once I watched that, I have started to do research; first on the internet, then the books; and now I am reading 4 books at once, and learning about success, and how my talents may become my ultimate asset.

If you wish to follow along with the books I am learning from, here they are, so far.  My “law of attraction reading list is far from complete, but every journey has to have a beginning.

The Success Principles by Jack Canfield

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles

Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill

And Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker.

These books have really been helping me learn the basics of what it takes to succeed, and why I have been missing it my whole life.

As a result of these new discoveries about myself, I have started a new YouTube channel about my journey to success.  It is designed to show my journey toward a successful life from the beginning, instead of in retrospect, like everyone else.  I hope you will visit the channel, watch the videos, and be inspired to begin your own journey, if you haven’t already started.

The channel is found at http://www.youtube.com/user/thisjourneytosuccess

Please pop in, and say hi.
