The Laws to Success and the Guidelines to Making Them WorkPosted: July 11, 2011
In this blog, I will be talking about six mental laws that will bring anyone that follows them all the success they desire. Some of you may ask, is it that simple? The reality is, it’s very SIMPLE, but it may not be so easy. But anything worth having is worth working towards. I hope you are able to use these truths to better your life and the lives of those around you. Many books have been written concerning these laws and you can find some of most powerful ones ever written on this subject.
The Law of Control
You feel good about yourself to the extent that you feel in control of your life. When you are working toward a goal that you feel good about and for which you have made a conscious decision to target, your actions support your feelings of being in control of your destiny.
The Law of Cause and Effect
For every effect in your life, there is a definite or specific cause. Change the cause and get rid of the effect.
The Law of Belief
Whatever you believe with feeling becomes your reality. Whatever your belief system supports is what you become. If you believe with feeling that you will be a success, you will be. The same is true if you believe you will become a failure.
The Law of Expectations
Whatever you “expect” with confidence becomes your self-fulfilling prophecy. Not what you want, but what you expect!
Law of Attraction
You are a living magnet and attract whatever is in alignment with your dominant thoughts. Like attracts like and when you are clear about what you want to attract, you will. When you couple your desire with the intensity of feeling that comes with why you want the things you want, it will come.
Law of Correspondence
Your outer world corresponds to your inner world. You must be, rather than do! You cannot have a filthy car, wrinkled clothes and smell bad, while convincing yourself and those around you that what is going on inside of you is congruent with your stated desire to be the epitome of outward success.
What are the keys to making these Laws of Success work?
The first is….
Attitude will overcome any obstacle. Attitude will change anyone that uses it and will create an advantage over any other person that doesn’t have the same burning desire and positive attitude. Having an attitude of confidence and of positive expectations will win over superior abilities. But, how do you find that positive and unstoppable attitude? Through blogs just like this one! Through seminars, books, cds, and mentorship!
Remember, it is not what you want, it is what you expect! Do you expect to find a parking spot close to the door, do you expect to make a putt, do you expect to close a sale or do you expect to be broke, depressed and to never win? What you expect, with intensity of feeling, is what you get. What causes you to have the expectations you have?
If you believe, with all your heart and soul that you will never quit or give up until you reach your goal, you will. If you believe that you have the talent, worthiness and what it takes to achieve what you have set out to achieve, you will. If you believe there is no way you will attain the things you want and that they are only dreams, then that is what they will remain: Dreams. So the question you have to ask yourself how do you come to have your beliefs?
What you have been told either directly or indirectly by those that helped to shape you, and what you have chosen to believe about what they told you about yourself, is what you are using to determine who you are. You have a self concept about your weight, your golf game, your singing voice, your income and all the different abilities in each and every area of your life. In other words, you believe you are capable of making changes, of becoming successful, of being highly respected, of being what ever it is you have become.
And the one key element necessary to create the best possible self-concept is to love yourself. And loving yourself is not vain bordering on the unhealthy. It is and has been a part of the wisdoms passed down through the ages. In the bible it is said to “love your neighbor as you love yourself”. Can you hate yourself and love your neighbor? Of course not!
Try this: Stand in front of a mirror and say fifty to one hundred times, “I like myself” and not smile. You can’t do it! Over and over tell yourself that you simply like you. That is a start and a big one!
The single most powerful way to implement all of these Laws of Success, is to control your thoughts and emotions; which lead to feelings, which lead to having whatever it is that you want and truly expect. Recognizing these 6 laws and implementing the keys to making them work will get you on track to accomplishing all of your hopes and ambitions. I look forward to hearing from you on your progress!
God Bless and Good Luck in your Endeavors!
