Happiness Before Success

Saturday, March 16th, 2019

Many of us chase Success in order to become happy and fulfilled. The formula that was taught by schools, parents, the company we work for, or society says ‘If you work hard, you will be successful and then you will be happy.’ Almost two decades of research indicates this isn’t true.

Putting on a happy face is not what we are talking about here. Happiness is “learning how to cultivate the mindset and behaviors that have been proven to fuel greater success and fulfillment. It is a work ethic.” (Shawn Achor in The Happiness Advantage) Imagine! Happiness being a work ethic!

Not only does being happy improve relationships, performance, your health, and enables you to live longer, but it causes success and achievement. You’ve heard of the flight or fight response. Positive Psychology research has found that happiness has an evolutionary contribution that is called “Broaden and Build” (instead of shrink, freeze or flee). When our mindset or mood is positive we are more motivated, more creative, smarter, and more successful.

Negative emotions narrow our options and actions. Positive emotions opens us up to possibilities, allows us to think more creatively, become more motivated, and open to new ideas. “They help us build more intellectual, social, and physical resources we can rely on in the future (Achor).” Not only can we think better, we can also see more!!!!! We can physically see more, process more visual stimulation, and actually expand our peripheral vision when we have a positive mindset, or a burst of positive emotion. This is powerful data! I’ve been saying on this blog that scarcity consciousness contracts and optimism and thriving helps us expand. Now data shows that it actually does exactly that.

A couple of examples. Students who were told to think of the happiest days of their lives just before an exam out performed those people who didn’t think positive thoughts. A study using experienced doctors looking at descriptions of symptoms were able to get to an accurate diagnosis twice as fast as the control group. The thing that made them happy? They were given a piece of candy for no reason (but did not eat it) just before starting their analysis.

Guess what else it does? Positive emotions help undo stress and anxiety! This allows us to improve our focus, and function at a higher ability. If you are needing to perform for example on a presentation thinking of successful times that you have already presented, or imagining your presentation going well, or watching a video that uplifts you or gives you a smile, will allow you to make a better presentation.

When we give ourselves quick positive boosts, we can function better in the moment. When we do this over time, we raise our baseline of happiness. What we want to do is develop a list of activities, thoughts that can give us a quick boost, or remember times that makes us smile. A short humorous video clip, listening to a favorite song, petting your dog, having a quick conversation with a friend, cleaning your bathroom or kitchen, are things you might do to lift your spirits and give yourself an enormous boost in performance.

Shawn Achor gives a list of suggested things to do which give us a quick boost of positive emotions which can help us change and lift our mindset. Over time, if we do this, we raise our happiness set point.

  1. Meditate
  2. Find Something to Look forward to. (Put something on your calendar that you can have the pleasure of anticipating.
  3. Commit Conscious Acts of Kindness (giving to friends and or strangers decreases stress and raises your mood)
  4. Put things in your surroundings that bring you pleasure – like pictures of family near your computer at work.
  5. Spending time outside improves your mood, improves working memory, and broadens your thinking.
  6. Perhaps watching less TV, especially violent media. Psychologists have found that people who watch less TV are more accurate judges of risks and rewards, because they are less likely to see sensationalized or one-sided sources of information.
  7. Exercise. One study show that 3 groups of depressed people were studied. One was given antidepressants, and the second group was asked to exercise 45 minutes 3 times a week, and the third was a combination of both. All 3 groups showed similar improvements after 4 months. After 6 months, of the medication alone group, 38% had relapsed back into depression. The exercise only group only had a relapse factor of 9%. Exercise any way you want, because it gives you a long lasting effect.
  8. Go to activities like concerts, group dinners out or spend money on someone else.
  9. Exercise a Signature Strength. We are all good at a number of things. Whenever we do the things that we are good at, we experience a boost of positivity. You can take a survey at www.viasurvey.org to find out what your top five strengths are. The 24 character strengths that are assessed are the ones most contributing to human flourishing.
  10. While Achor did not list this, two posts ago, I listed writing into your book of positive aspects as something to do at the beginning of each day. Today, I am amending that to make a list of recent things that have made your smile or feel really good. And keep adding to it, because when you are not happy, you will not remember these things.

My friend Nisha told me today that our brains are wired to loop again and again with a playlist of how to stay safe (from our survival training of watch out for bears, lions, and tigers, or falling off cliffs). Smiles, and positive thoughts don’t make that playlist. That is why we have to consciously choose to reach for better feeling thoughts and experiences. I am hunching that this is what Dr. Achor meant when he suggest happiness is a work ethic.

So I was feeling down when I started reading The Happiness Advantage, and was so refreshed to read about the research that shows how remarkably reaching for a better feeling thought, a better feeling experience helps us to be successful in our lives, in our relationships, in our work, in our performance, in our earning ability. Being conscious about where we are emotionally pays great dividends.

What Two Ingredients Put You Into Flow?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

These last three months, I have not been in Flow. Before I tell you about the two special ingredients of Flow, which I am so glad I remembered I want to tell you my journey.

My consciousness has been getting more alert and I feel I can see more. Some truly spectacular things have been happening for me, and yet it has been a very jerky ride. One day things are great. The next day, or moment, things are upside down again.

Usually, when I am in the flow, my life feels magical. Reality seems to actually become pliable. This life these last three months? Not so much. Yet I have made huge strides in clarity, self-confidence, boundaries, speaking my truth, and the most wonderful thing is that I have dropped a huge amount of reactivity. I am more authentic, powerful, and straightforward. And with this empowerment a few darker areas of my consciousness came to light.

These High Octane Times
Here’s what I’m thinking. We are in times when things are shifting big time. If you can stay tuned in, tapped in, turned on to life, your awareness will expand and you see multiple dimensions of possibility.

But making this shift is a challenge. Whatever is not alive and awake comes up and grabs you and says “Wake up!” It is not fun getting those wake up calls. But the potential is phenomenal and the energy is here for us to transform exponentially. The energy will propel us forward powerfully. Of course when we hit a snag, it feels like running into a tree when we have been going 100 miles an hour.

For a while in this high octane energy field, I got lost in some depression, some nostalgia during the holidays, and having poor health for at two months.

So what did I do? I read, relaxed, tried to get well, and worked my emotional process. I got somewhat lost in the feelings, though I trusted the process and knew it would lead me forward.

Remembering at Last
This morning I was inspired to relisten to a seven minute video Vishen Lahkiani, CEO of a personal growth company called MindValley. He reminded me of those essential ingredients to the state of flow and four states of mind in his video Flow, The Paradox of Intention and Four States of Mind. I thought you might enjoy his perspective.

Four States of Mind
Vishen identifies these four states of those people who are business owners and follow the Law of Attraction. Vishen has developed this concept over a couple of years and says the Flow is the 4th step. Here is a description of each state, and the name I call them.

1. Misery or Survival

        You are completely unhappy right now –

2. Comfort of Current Reality.

        You are happy, content, but you have no vision. ‘Let’s all hang out in Bliss.’ –

3. Stress and Anxiety

        You have great dream and visions, but unhappy because they are not there yet –

4. Flow

        When you are happy now, you have a vision and are happy with the journey –

While I was working my process, I had gotten lost in the Stress and Anxiety State of Mind. And sometimes that’s just natural. I was looking at a core pattern that I want to transform. This pattern has deep roots, has operated for my lifetime, and had a very dark piece that came into being to protect an innocent child.

This journey into Stress and Anxiety was an intentional act of courage to look at a core wound I have so that I can transmute this pattern and restore my connection with “Who I really Am.” I just got bogged down in the survival vibrations along the way.

Two Ingredients to Flow
So what are the two ingredients to restore myself to Flow? According to Vishen I need to:

    Be happy now (before I reach my dream).
    Have the vision of where I am headed.

So happiness is part of the journey not the destination. This balancing of happiness right in this moment, while aspiring for something we want or are dreaming about is something Esther Hicks calls The Gap in the Law of Attraction work.

Vishen is saying “Get rid of Stress and Anxiety while you are on the journey.” And that my friends are what we are called to do right now in these times. It is not always easy, but it is incredibly fulfilling. See Journeying Through the Gap.

Ways to Stay Happy
We need to put systems in place to help us be happy along the way. Here is Vishen’s list of practices to keep ourselves happy. I link to past blog entries that are my input on these practices.

1. Meditation.

Meditate into a New State of Being
Meditate. Why?

2. Guided Visualization –

Imagination and the Law of Success
Prosperity Secret of 17 Seconds.

3. Intention Setting. Esther Hicks calls this process Segment Intending. You can set an intention for this moment, this day, this year, or this particular segment of time – like when you pick up a phone call.

Setting Daily Intention
Prosperity Secrets to Create Your Day

4. Inspirational Readings or videos:

Inspirational Practices
Personalized Inspirational Quotes
Flow or Not to Flow, That is the Question

6. Gratitude

Gratitude Inspirational Quotes
Recognize Signs the Universe Delivers

Remembering and Forgetting
So now I am reminded that I just went down the emotional scale temporarily (even if part of it was on purpose), got lost in a survival state of mind. I ‘m reminded of the practices that I can take to restore my equilibrium. Here are some resources

Survival Thinking
Raise your Vibration and Go Up the Emotional Scale
Survival and Contracting
Dreams and Survival Thinking

Vision
Dare to Dream
Vision and the Law of Success

State
Understanding Your State
Shift Your State
Meditate to a New State
Journeying through the Gap

Happiness
Law of Success Strategies
The Secret to Optimism, Success, Positive Attitude, and Being Happy

Flow
To Flow or Not to Flow, That is the Question
Flowing or Bumping

Last month I worked on my Vision Board for 2015. So I am very clear about my vision this year. I just had forgotten to be happy along the way (even though it is on my Vision Board). I’m reminding myself about ways to go back to being happy. Counting my blessing always makes me feel better.

This journey of living and becoming more conscious is a constant growing and then rebalancing process and sometimes we forget along the way. It’s just natural. And now that I’ve finished this essay, I realize that I knew all this all the time – just as you do too. We’re just human beings doing the best we can. We are constantly Remembering and Forgetting.

Strengths and Success

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009


Strengths and Success
are related. How much do you know about your personal strengths, your individuality? How much do you cherish those strengths? Strength and Positive Psychology are oriented towards what you do right. In order to experience success, knowledge and appreciation of your strengths are vital.

We live in a negative society. Our parents often want us to “fit in” while we are growing up; schools want to deliver their core curricula, not nurturing our passions and uniqueness. When we go to work we are hired and then often need to change ourselves to fit the job, and are evaluated upon the areas that need to be improved. This fixation upon our weaknesses undermines our productivity, contributes to illnesses. To be successful, we need to focus on our strengths.

Positives are very necessary to our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Being positive can increase your life by ten years. Being negative have make you ill and kill you. Positiveness increases your success. Negativity undermines your success. Positives build your self confidence.

How do you play to your strength? Identify your strengths is step one. Acknowledge your strengths is step two. Remind yourself of your strengths often; step three. Develop you strengths and use them more fully helps you flourish and be successful. If you are asked to speak to your five greatest weaknesses and your five greatest strengths, which could you do the fastest? I’m betting that you can easily identify your weaknesses.

Your mission today is to identify five personal strengths. Embrace them as part of your path to success. They are yours. Everyone needs at least five positive interactions for every negative interaction. That is the magic ratio. So it is up to you to begin making a list of your personal strengths. You need to add to it each day, and you need to remind yourself each evening of where you used your strengths during the day. As you value and appreciate your strengths, your success will increase. As you increase your awareness of your personal strengths, others will notice your success.

Some resources for you are the following books. They are all excellent. Click on the links to learn more.

State of Mind

Monday, January 05th, 2009

State of Mind State of Being

Fundamental to the Law of Attraction and to the Law of Success is one’s state. It makes sense that you have different emotional states. When you are depressed, it feels very different than when you are happy. The experience of despair is quite opposite the state of vibrant expectancy of something good happening.

We each have the experience of many differing states. Each of those states has a different frequency. When you are optimistic, you are more likely to encounter others who are optimistic. When you are feeling victimized, you are apt to run into others who will be delighted to help you stay in that state. Like attracts like.

It is helpful is to know that these emotional states have a scale. Knowing the scale allows us to make movement in very tiny steps up the scale. We may not be able to move from depression to joy in one step, but we can move from depression to insecurity to anger. And from anger we can move to discouragement to doubt to overwhelment, frustration, pessimism, to boredom. From boredom, it is pretty simple to reach for contentment, even hope, then optimism, and eventually the expectancy of good things, eagerness, and happiness is not too far away. Each of these emotional “places” has their own vibration and frequency. See the post When You Forget for more information about the emotional scale.

Throughout these posts we have said that Faith is a state of mind. Optimism is a state of mind. Happiness is a state of Mind. Success is a state of mind. We habitually hang out in the state that is “normal” for us. A “state” is a frequency, a band of energy, a way of thinking, a state of consciousness, a vibratory frequency, a way of being if you will.

Scarcity consciousness is a state of being or a state of mind. Wealth consciousness is a state of being or a state of mind. They carry very different thoughts, beliefs, and therefore send out very differing vibratory frequencies – they send out very different energies.

Think of it this way. How do you respond when you are around someone who is pessimistic, and tell stories about their lives that portray themselves as the victim of poor luck? How do you respond when you spend time with someone who is upbeat, optimistic about a new project, who is looking forward to what happens next and believes that they make their own luck. You are responding to the “state” of the person. You are responding to the vibratory energy that is being emitted by that state. You are responding to their state of being.

If you have a visceral response to these states, doesn’t it make sense that the Universe and other people also have responses to these states? If you are in a victim state, you may feel some resonance with that person yourself. If you are tired of feeling like a victim, you may be repelled by seeing the victim state of being in another person. If you are in a victim state, you may be irritated by an exuberant person who is looking at the world with hope and expectancy.

Your state is absolutely all important to your getting what you want and need, whether it is success in love, relationships, money, new jobs, fulfillment, hobbies, friendships, athletics, or spiritual development.

Recognizing that you have different state of awareness or beingness, or consciousness, or states of emotions, or states of mind – whatever fits for you – is essential. When you recognize that you have different states you have more options. You can accept that these are all you – without judgment, and again you have more options.

When you begin to recognize which state you are in, you can begin to make choices about whether or not you want to continue in that state. Each state has tell tale signs. When I get really irritable and grouchy and want to lash out, I know that my victim state has taken command and that I really am irritated with the Universe (actually myself).

If I remember soon enough, I will be grateful that I am in an irritable state, because I have far more energy available than when I am depressed, because it is higher up on the emotional scale. When I am irritated I have more capacity for movement.

Then I do some tapping (EFT) or some prayer or some meditation, or some journaling, or any other numerous ways to move from that state to one where I am happier and more able to relax into the state of being of my choice.

We’ll talk more about state of mind and state of being. For now thanks for stopping by.

Vibration, the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Vibration, the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction are powerful principles described by Napoleon Hill. In the last two posts we have looked at the Subconscious mind and Faith. Napoleon Hill believes that the subconscious mind provides a link with Infinite Intelligence and all other minds (Law of Attraction). But to see how the subconscious mind communicates with the Infinite Intelligence is important. Here is how Napoleon describes the dynamic behind the Law of Success which is also known as the Law of Attraction.

“Comes now a very significant statement of truth:

THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS, CONSTITUTE A ‘MAGNETIC’ FORCE WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE VIBRATIONS OF THE ETHER, OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS. A thought thus “magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which, when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over again, until that which was originally one small seed, becomes countless millions of seeds of the SAME BRAND!” (p.72) (Law of Attraction)

This description by Hill of the law of attraction which is essential to the Law of Success was written in the late 1930’s and edited out of many editions of Think and Grow Rich. Editors did not believe that the mass public would want to hear about vibrations and ether. These same principles were edited out of The Secret. Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based upon the same principles.

“The ether is a great cosmic mass of eternal forces of vibration. It is made up of both destructive vibrations and constructive vibrations. It carries at all times, vibrations of fear, poverty, disease, failure, misery; and vibrations of prosperity, health, success, and happiness, just as surely as it carries the sound of hundreds of orchestrations of music, and hundreds of human voices, all of which maintain their own individuality, and means of identification through the medium of radio.” (Law of attraction)

“From the great storehouse of the ether, the human mind is constantly attracting vibrations which harmonize with that which DOMINATES the human mind. Any thought, idea, plan, or purpose which one holds in one’s mind attracts, from the vibrations of the ether, a host of its relatives, adds these ‘relatives’ to its own force, and grows until it becomes the dominating, MOTIVATING MASTER of the individual in whose mind it has been housed.” (Law of Success)

Essentially Napoleon Hill is saying the same as the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like. If you hold prosperous thoughts, you will attract prosperity. If you hold scarcity thoughts as your dominant vibration, you attract scarcity. Law of Success is built around this magnetic principle. Positive thinking is not the purpose of the Law of Success. Holding positive thoughts are the necessity to attract more positive results – which is the main theorem in Law of Attraction.

In the chapter on the Subconscious Mind, Napoleon Hill once more speaks of how the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success works. He says:

“less than a hundred years ago, men believed the space between the planets to be nothing but a great void, a stretch of dead nothingness. Now thanks to this same power of FAITH, men know that far from being either dead or a void, the space between the planets is very much alive, that it is the highest form of vibration known, excepting, perhaps the vibrations of THOUGHT. Moreover, men know that this living, pulsating, vibratory energy which permeates every atom of
matter, and fills every niche of space, connects every human brain with every other human brain.” (Law of Attraction)

Hill is saying the same thing Wattles says in the Science of Getting Rich. The Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based on vibration and an intelligent universe. Both men outline the principles as they understood them in the 20’s and 30’s.

All matter is energy (Einstein). All matter is vibration. Source is in every particle. Source is Intelligent. Source hears our prayers and our thoughts. Vibration is drawn to like vibration. The reason Law of Success and Law of Attraction works, is that Source is connected to all. Source sends back ideas, and intuitions. Source can arrange coincidences and serendipity for people to meet or have like mind.

Listen to more of Hill’s description of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.

“What reason have men to believe that this same energy does not connect every human brain with Infinite Intelligence?” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

“There are no toll-gates between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. The communication costs nothing except Patience, Faith, Persistence, Understanding, and a SINCERE DESIRE to communicate…..” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

“The method by which you may communicate with Infinite Intelligence is very similar to that through which the vibration of sound is communicated by radio. If you understand the working principle of radio, you of course, know that sound cannot be communicated through the ether until it has been “stepped up,” or changed into a rate of vibration which the human ear cannot detect. The radio sending station picks up the sound of the human voice, and “scrambles,” or modifies it by stepping up the vibration millions of times. Only in this way, can the vibration of sound be communicated through the ether. After this transformation has taken place, the ether “picks up” the energy (which originally was in the form of vibrations or sound), carries that energy to radio receiving stations and these receiving sets “step” that energy back down to its original rate of vibration so it is recognized as sound.” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

The Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based on vibration. In Hill’s model, the subconscious is our “Radio station.” What is being broadcast out of the subconscious is very important. Old beliefs and repetitive thinking go into the subconscious. Some strategies will be talked about in future posts (EFT or Tapping). Where we put our attention is what we draw to us. This is a fundamental principal of Law of Attraction and Law of Success. If we focus on how little money we have then we attract more lack of money. This is a crucial factor in Law of Attraction and Law of Success. This understanding of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success is extraordinarily important right now. Today. When everywhere we look and hear messages about the economy we are influenced by other’s thoughts and perceptions. If our focus is on “what is” – the slow down, the recession – then it is a guarantee that more of the same will happen. The Law of Attraction guarantees that if the national public focuses on a depression, it will happen.

As we are all influenced greatly by what is being said around us, it is paramount to understand this principle of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success. What to do? Read the section under strategies. Practice imagining having what you do want, and what it will be like when it arrives. The Law of Attraction listens to the Subconscious. If you are imagining – and that is the only way to get those thoughts into the Subconscious – what you desire, then you are vibrating differently than when you are focused on lack. The Law of Success places much emphasis on optimism – which is a vibratory frequency more in alignment with Success.

But let’s go back to Napoleon Hill who wrote Think and Grow Rich as a direct answer for people who were coming out of the Great Depression. He took great pains to delineate the Law of Success and Law of Attraction to help that generation who were lost in fear.

“The subconscious mind is the intermediary, which translates one’s prayers into terms which infinite Intelligence can recognize, presents the message, and brings back the answer in the form of a definite plan or idea for procuring the object of prayer. ….Before your prayer will reach Infinite Intelligence,…it probably is transformed from its original thought vibration into terms of spiritual vibration. Faith is the only known agency which will give your thoughts a spiritual nature.” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

To summarize the past few posts to more fully understand the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction:

    The subconscious is our connecting Link with Infinite Intelligence.
    The subconscious mind is fed by habit.
    You can consciously “feed” the subconscious with thoughts mixed with
    Faith, Burning Desire, Powerful emotions, Imagination.
    These ideas can be submitted to the subconscious only through Imagination.
    Prayers are this kind of “conscious feeding”
    The state you are in when you pray determines the result.
    Pray with Faith and Expectancy. (Ask and it is Given)
    Imagine that you already in possession of that which you desire.
    Thoughts and Images are things.
    The Universe arranges itself around you based on your vibration.
    If you vibrate scarcity and poverty – you get more of it.
    If you vibrate abundance and plenty – you get more of it.
    What you focus upon is what you attract to yourself magnetically.
    Every particle of the Universe is intelligent.
    Einstein says the most important question there is:
    Is the Universe friendly or not?

You get to pick. What kind of life do you want to have? I focused on poverty and lack most of my life. I decided that I had had enough. The Universe definitely provided me what I had been focusing on and the stories I had been telling myself and others. I much prefer feeding myself images created in the 17 second process – a strategy from the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.

The Law of Success and the Law of Attraction want you to have what you want. The Universe will provide it to you as you imagine it to be. You get to apply a little will power and choice to what you think about. The Universe is waiting for you to apply the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction in whatever way you wish.

Tomorrow we will talk about states of being and how they affect our vibration. The vibration that we are emitting governs the effect we receive from the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.

Subconscious and the Law of Success

Sunday, December 28th, 2008


Subconscious
interacts with the Law of Success in a specific way. Napoleon Hill sees the Subconscious Mind as the connecting Link. I am going to quote in detail from his chapter on the Subconscious Mind (Chap. 12 in Think and Grow Rich) in case you only have the heavily edited version. The Law of Attraction information restates what Napoleon Hill said many years ago. He says:

“Through a method of procedure, unknown to man, the subconscious mind draws upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence for the power with which it voluntarily transmutes one’s desires into their physical equivalent, making use, always of the most practical media by which this end may be accomplished.

“There is plenty of evidence to support the belief that the subconscious mind is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. It is the intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence at will. It, alone, contains the secret process by which mental impulses are modified and changed into their spiritual equivalent. It alone, is the medium through which prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of answering prayer.

“The possibilities of creative effort connected with the subconscious mind are stupendous and imponderable. They inspire one with awe.”

“….The very fact that the subconscious mind is the medium of communication between the thinking mind of man and Infinite Intelligence is, of itself, a thought which almost paralyzes one’s reason.

“After you have accepted, as a reality, the existence of the subconscious mind, and understand its possibilities, as a medium for transmuting your DESIRES into their physical or monetary equivalent, you will comprehend the full significance of the instructions given in the chapter on DESIRE. You will also understand why you have been repeatedly admonished to MAKE YOUR DESIRES CLEAR, AND TO REDUCE THEM TO WRITING. You will also understand the necessity of PERESISTENCE in carrying out instructions. “

Napoleon Hill goes on to say that the thirteen principles behind the Law of Success “are the stimuli with which you acquire the ability to reach, and to influence your subconscious mind. Do not become discouraged, if you cannot do this upon first attempt. Remember that the subconscious mind may be voluntarily directed only through habit, under the directions given in the chapter on FAITH. You have not yet had time to master faith. Be patient. Be Persistent.”

“A good many statements in the chapters on faith and auto-suggestion will be repeated here, for the benefit of YOUR subconscious mind. Remember, your subconscious mind functions voluntarily, whether you make any effort to influence it or not. This, naturally, suggests to you that thoughts of fear and poverty, and all negative thoughts serve as stimuli to your subconscious mind, unless, you master these impulses and give it more desirable food upon which it may feed.

“The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant DESIRES in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts which reach it as the result of your neglect. We have already explained that thought impulses, both negative and positive are reaching the subconscious mind continuously…..

“For the present, it is sufficient if you remember that you are living daily, in the midst of all manner of thought impulses which are reaching your subconscious mind, without your knowledge. Some of these impulses are negative, some are positive. You are now engaged in trying to help shut off the flow of negative impulses, and to aid in voluntarily influencing your subconscious mind, through positive impulses of DESIRE.

“When you achieve this, you will possess the key which unlocks the door to your subconscious mind. Moreover, you will control that door so completely, that no desirable thought may influence your subconscious mind.

“Everything which man creates, BEGINS in the form of a thought impulse. Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in THOUGHT. Through the aid of the imagination, thought impulses may be assembled into plans. The imagination, when under control, may be used for the creation of plans or purposes that lead to success in one’s chosen occupation.

“All thought impulses, intended for transmutation into their physical equivalent, voluntarily planted in the subconscious mind, must pass through the imagination, and be mixed with faith. The “mixing” of faith with a plan, or purpose, intended for submission to the subconscious mind, may be done ONLY through the imagination.

“From these statements, you will readily observe that the voluntary use of the subconscious mind calls for coordination and application of all the principles.

“Ella Wheeler Wilcox gave evidence of her understanding of the power of the subconscious mind when she wrote:

“You never can tell what a thought will do
In bringing you hate or love-
For thoughts are things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe-
Each thing creates its kind,
And they speed O’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.”

“Mrs. Wilcox understood the truth, that thoughts which go out from one’s mind, also imbed themselves deeply in one’s subconscious mind, where they serve as a magnet, pattern, or blueprint by which the subconscious mind is influenced while translating them into their physical equivalent. Thoughts are truly things, for the reason that every material thing begins in the form of thought-energy.

“The subconscious mind is more susceptible to influence by impulses of thought mixed with “feeling” or emotion, than by those originating solely in the reasoning portion of the mind. In fact there is much evidence to support the theory, that ONLY emotionalized thoughts have any ACTION influence upon the subconscious mind. It is a well known fact that emotion or feeling, rules the majority of people. If it is true that the subconscious mind responds more quickly to, and is influenced more readily by thought impulses which are well mixed with emotion, it is essential to become familiar with the more important of emotions. There are seven major positive emotions, and seven major negative emotions. The negatives voluntarily inject themselves into the thought impulses, which insure passage into the subconscious mind. The positive must be injected, through the principle of auto-suggestion, into the thought impulses which an individual wishes to pass on to his subconscious mind.

“These emotions, or feeling impulses, may be likened to yeast in a loaf of bread, because they constitute the ACTION element, which transforms through impulses from the passive to the active state. Thus may one understand why thought impulses, which have been well mixed with emotion, are acted upon more readily than thought impulses originating in “cold reason.

“You are preparing yourself to influence and control the “inner audience” of your subconscious mind, in order to hand over to it the DESIRE for money, which you wish transmuted into its monetary equivalent. It is essential, therefore, that you understand the method of approach to this “inner audience.” You must speak its language, or it will not heed your call. It understands best the language of emotion or feeling. …….Remember in this connection, that you are studying a book which is intended to help you develop a “money consciousness” by filling your mind with positive emotions. One does not become money conscious by filling one’s mind with negative emotions.

Form the habit of applying and using the positive emotions! Eventually they will dominate your mind so completely, that the negatives cannot enter it.”

Napoleon Hill says powerful things in the next section on the Subconscious mind about faith and prayer. We will take that up in the next post.

The Secret Key to Law of Success #8

The Secret Key to Law of Success #8
Develop Controlled Enthusiasm

The Secret key to Law of Success #8 is to develop controlled enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is to success and positive mental attitude like gasoline is to an engine. In today’s market where fuel prices have skyrocketed, we are tending to make more conscious choices of how we use that fuel. We want to use enthusiasm in a way that supports Law of Success.

Napoleon Hill says “In working with your PMA (positive mental attitude), you will learn to control your mind. The same control can be used on your enthusiasm, so that it is continually fed into the cylinders of your mental engine, where it is ignited by the spark of your definite purpose and explodes, pushing the pistons of applied faith and personal initiative.” The secret key to Law of Success is to develop enthusiasm to support your purpose and action plan.

Enthusiasm is power. It is contagious. It with faith has the power to transmute your feelings of adversity into action that move you to success. As you develop your power of enthusiasm, you also develop your positive mental attitude. Enthusiasm acts on our subconscious mind the same way as positive mental attitude. It fills it with images, desires, and plans for success. It is part of what fuels the Law of Success.

Many positive effects occur as the result of controlled enthusiasm, the secret key#8 to the Law of Success. You will

    1. Increase the intensity of your thinking and imagination (the secret key to Law of Success # 10 – Think Accurately).
    2. Acquire a pleasing and convincing tone of voice (helps build a pleasing personality – of the secret key to Law of Success # 3).
    3. Reduce the drudgery in your work.
    4. Have a more attractive personality (the secret key to Law of Success # 3).
    5. Gain self-confidence.
    6. Strengthen your mental and physical health.
    7. Build your personal initiative.
    8. Overcome physical and mental fatigue more easily.
    9. Spread your enthusiasm to others. (the secret key to Law of Success # 12).

Enthusiasm needs to be developed and channeled towards your goals. Control your enthusiasm says Hill, so that you don’t monopolize conversations, waste your precious fuel on wheels of chance or whiskey bottles, or reveal your ideas to competitors. You want to pour your enthusiasm into your definite purpose, which is key #1 in the secret key to Law of Success.

Here are Hill’s steps on How to Develop Controlled Enthusiasm, Key 8 in the secret key to Law of Success:

    1. Adopt a major purpose. (the secret key to Law of Success #1).
    2. Write out a clear statement of that purpose and your plan for attaining it. Include a statement of what you intend to give in return for its realization.
    3. Back your purpose with a burning desire. Fan that desire; coax it; let it become the dominating thought in your mind (enthusiasm helps fan your desire).
    4. Set to work immediately in carrying out your plan.
    5. Follow your plan accurately and persistently.
    6. If you are overtaken by defeat, study your plan carefully, and change it if necessary. Do not change it simply because you have met defeat.
    7. Ally yourself with others whose aid you need. (Masterminding is the secret Key to Law of Success # 2).
    8. Keep away from joy-killers and naysayers. Stick with the optimists.
    9. Never let a day pass without devoting some time to furthering your plan. You are developing enthusiasm as a habit, and habits require reinforcement.
    10. Keep yourself sold on the idea that you will obtain your definite major purpose, no matter how far way that moment seems. Autosuggestion is a powerful force in developing enthusiasm.
    11. Keep your mind positive at all times. Enthusiasm will not thrive in a field full of fear, envy, greed, jealousy, doubt, revenge, hatred, intolerance, and procrastination. It needs positive thought and action. (Secret Key to Law of Success # 7 Build a Positive Mental Attitude).

Enthusiasm and positive mental attitude relies upon and reinforces the principles that are crucial to personal achievement. Enthusiasm supports positive mental attitude. “The cultivation of success is a complex, organic process; whenever you advance in acting on one of its tenets, you advance in others” states Hill.

The Secret Key to Law of Success #7
Build a Positive Mental Attitude

The Secret Key to Law of Success # 7 is the directive to Build a Positive Mental Attitude. Napoleon Hill said “A positive mental attitude is the single most important principle of the science of success. You will depend upon it in everything you do. You cannot get the maximum benefit out of the other sixteen principles without understanding and employing PMA (positive mental attitude).”

If building a positive mental attitude is the single most important, the secret key to Law of Success, what do you think is necessary to build a positive mental attitude? Napoleon says it is the ability to control your mind or your thoughts. Your mental attitude is the only thing that you have complete control over. If you practice this ability here are some of the benefits he predicts are a result of the law of success.

      1. Success Consciousness which attracts only the circumstances which make for success.
      2. Sound health, both physical and mental.
      3. Financial Independence.
      4. A labor of love in which to express yourself.
      5. Peace of Mind.
      6. Applied Faith, which makes fear impossible.
      7. Enduring friendships.
      8. Longevity and a well-balanced life.
      9. Immunity from self-limitation.
      10. The wisdom to understand yourself and others.

These benefits are the secret as well. If everyone knew them, why wouldn’t everyone be practicing positive mental attitude. Hill says that we each have the capacity for positiveness or negativeness. It is a choice. Choice is the secret to building a positive mental attitude. What do you choose?

    Striving for Success makes you better able to attain it. Doing nothing and accepting failure only brings more failure your way.” Napoleon Hill.

The law of attraction is one of the secrets behind the law of success. The more you practice the secret key of the law of success; build a positive mental attitude; the more success you have, and the happier and the healthier you are. You attract more friends, more love, more success, more health and more opportunity. It is your choice. What do you want more in your life?

“The Secret Key to Law of Success #3 Assemble “

Thursday, July 17th, 2008


The Secret Key to Law of Success #3

Assemble An Attractive Personality

The Secret Key # 3 to Law of Success according to Napoleon Hill is to assemble an Attractive Personality. There are many aspects of an attractive personality, and when one aspect is enhanced, the others are often enhanced. Many people want to assert that they are who they are; and others need to accept them as they are.

That is a fine sentiment. The Secret; the truth is, we are all very multi-faceted. We all have many different aspects to who we are. Using the Law of Success, We can choose what aspects of ourselves we want to enhance. Many of us use the excuse “I am who I am” simply to justify staying in our habitual frame of reference. If that happens to be crabby place, or pessimistic; ‘oh well, that’s just who I am.’ The Law of Success does not say, ok, I can be pessimistic and succeed.

When you encounter people who use the Law of Success in the outer world how do you feel? Would you want to place your business with a doctor who is pessimist, or an accountant, or an alternative healer? Do you want to have a boss who is crabby or a pessimist? The Secret Key to the Law of Success is that most everyone prefers to work with someone who is upbeat, positive, optimistic, and who is pleasant to deal with.

The secret is Pessimism is a habit. The secret is Crabbiness is a habit. The secret is Optimism is a habit. Each of those characteristics is a choice that we each make every moment, every day. The Law of Success asks us to give the best of ourselves. The alternative is we default to the habit of thinking and acting as we have been raised to do. It is your choice. The secret is YOU get to choose the characteristics in your self you want to enhance. Part of the secret is The Law of Success and the Law of Attraction will bring back to you whatever you are putting out into the world.

If you prefer working with people who have attractive personalities, chances are the rest of the world would prefer to work with you more if your personality is attractive, compelling and desirable to be around. These people embody the Law of Success. That’s part of the secret. That is just how the Law of Success works.

Part of the secret of the Law of Success, assembling an attractive personality requires a good bit of work on your part. You bet it does; particularly if you have some unappealing personality characteristics. The Secret to the Law of Success requires effort on your part. It is what you are giving to the world. What you put out is what you receive.

We are living in times when people are more stressed than ever. Opposite the Law of Success, most people drop into their most unappealing personality the more tired, the more stressed, and the more they find themselves in a survival mode. Resilience doesn’t seem to be very high for many people. This makes it all the more important for you to abide by The Secret to the Law of Success.

Law of Success would show this is all the more reason we need to focus on our choice of what personality qualities we wish to show. It is harder to get along in the world in general. In specific, the law of attraction still is powerful. The more optimistic and appealing you are and act, the more you will be around optimistic and appealing people – the secret to the Law of Success.

Here’s another secret. In the long run, it can be a very selfish thing to do – become positive and upbeat – because doing so begets success. It draws to you wonderful upbeat people. Assembling an attractive personality, part of the secret key of the Law of Success; enhances your ability to do what you want to do, people will be drawn to you and will want to buy from you whatever it is you are selling.

So it is your choice. The secret is: What you put out into the world is what you draw back from the world, simple law of attraction methodology. Choose whether you wish to implement the secret key to the Law of Success; assemble an attractive personality. You can be the same old habitual you with same old, same old attitudes and behaviors. Or you can choose to slant your attitude and behaviors more in alignment with how you want to be treated, therefore becoming a more attractive person.
