When you describe success, what words do you use? What does it mean to you? Who is living a life that you, in your personal view of the word, exemplifies success? What separates `you’ from `them’? In reality, nothing. Nothing in this world can stop the person who conceives, believes and chooses to receive success.
Consider this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, great poet and leader of the Transcendentalist movement in the early nineteenth century:
"To laugh much; to win the respect of people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Does anything Emerson had to say on the subject of success ring true in today’s complex and highly consumer influenced world? On the surface, it would seem not to, but look deeper with me. What is missing in this passage from Emerson’s extensive writings? There is no negativity listed at all. No thoughts of `Not hurting anyone, not littering, not being selfish, not being wasteful’, and so on. What is the difference? The difference is quite simply this: Success is not the absence of `bad’, since we live in a world tainted with people and their processes that are intent on evil `bad’ will not disappear from our lives, regardless of our success. Success is not the absence of bad, then, but the actual embodiment of good.
Stop, immediately, thinking what you don’t want in your life. Begin to purposely dwell on those things that, for you, spell success. Are the personal relations in your life in a shambles? Does your bank balance show more coming out than going in on a regular basis? Is your physical health so poor you don’t believe you can bear another day of suffering? All these issues, and countless others all await the Law of Attraction for positive direction and healing. The universal Law of Attraction does not see `good’ or ‘bad’, it only answers to the force calling. Therefore, if all you think is, `I don’t’, `I can’t’, `It won’t’, you will be right every time. The Law of Attraction is not interested in making a fool out you, if all you think about is what’s wrong with your life, that is all you will continue to see and realize.
When, however your perspective changes to the positive, it is as if the floodgates of heaven had opened upon you, and you won’t be able to find buckets big enough to hold all the blessings that pour down. So, allow your self to be positive, allow your heart , mind and soul to join together with the Law of Attraction and begin today towards a more successful tomorrow.
