Faith: The second principle of success.
You have to believe to achieve.
We have already entered November, which means that we are following the second principle of success: faith.
Fundamental message: You must first convince your subconscious mind that your desires are your reality, then your subconscious will take care of the rest.
How can this be put into practice? Many use statements to transfer their subconsciousness into the place of creation.
When you confirm and confirm your desired outcome through this repetitive nature, you are slowly convincing your subconscious that it is, in fact, true.
Once you begin to believe and “identify” with this new-found reality, you will begin to see the world in a different light. Things that were not available to you before will suddenly start to appear in your favor.
Your reality is beginning to migrate to what you have been calling for through your assertions. Whether they’ve appeared for the first time or have always been there, and you just haven’t “seen” it before, is unknown, because you can’t go back. You can’t help but see your new reality.
If you really don’t believe that you can achieve this new reality, this process will never work. You see, the reality you live in is entirely up to you and how you see yourself. You direct how others respond to you through the reality you have created for yourself. You are responsible for all this production.
That’s one of the things I love about this awareness. Every day, every moment, you can change your reality by changing how you perceive yourself. I didn’t say it was easy. Many of us have difficulty changing our perception of ourselves because it was created from years of personal experience. That was before we realized that we had the power to interpret and respond to our lived experiences. Changing this whole story takes time and practice. It requires setting an intention for yourself every day and constant awareness when you are breaking that intention. Be kind to yourself when you get lost and are on your way. Try to find the trigger, or better yet, the “glimpse” that will get you back to who you are supposed to be.
The practice of turning your Wish (the first Principle of Success) into reality takes time. Desire, because you have to want it so much that you cannot be easily held back. It’s not an easy process, if it were, everyone would have everything they’ve ever wanted. Desire weeds out those who have no true conviction.
What should I do? I’m so glad you asked.
I’ve already written about my morning practice where I spend 10 minutes using Tony Robbin’s priming exercise. One minute to focus, 3 minutes to be grateful, 3 minutes to receive the gifts of the universe, and 3 minutes to imagine the future you want. What I’m grateful for every morning is changing, sometimes it was something amazing that happened the day before, and sometimes I’m just grateful for the peacetime morning with the breeze in my face. The three things I focus on are always the same. Write a book, do this job full time, and finally spend 3 months living with my partner and dog on the West Coast.
I am very glad that I can announce that the latter is already being implemented. It may not seem like an impossible feat, but it took a lot of coordination and luck to work together and all at the right time to make this dream a reality. And once that happened, I still had to risk losing my job because of it. Fortunately, it didn’t come to that, but it was pretty bloody close.
Two other desires are still under development. I have ideas about my book all the time and I started various drafts. I keep telling myself that if I had time to get completely involved in the process, I could shoot it down. Yeah, I know, just an excuse, and if I really wanted it to be bad enough, I’d work on it every single minute I have. Well, it so happens that I have a very long cross-country trip, and I have a lot of time by car. Maybe it will spur my creative side to release a bestseller.
So I wanted to bring my blog together to inspire others that these principles work if you work with them, so I wanted to share that one of my first three desires is already entrenched. Success.
