Everything happens for a reason; for every effect, there is a specific cause. This law says that achievement, wealth, happiness, prosperity and business success are all the direct and indirect effects or results of specific actions. This simply means that if you clear of e results you want, you can probably achieve it. If you don’t think and see it real, it can’t just happen. True success only comes when an action or a course has been taken. You can choose to be whatever you want, but mind you, there must a course of action. Successful people are not magicians, these are people who have identified their course, and commit themselves by taking actions towards the ultimate goal. You may want to start by studying others who have achieved the same goal you desire for your life, and by doing what they did; you can get the same results.
My dear friend, success is not a miracle, nor is it a matter of luck. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative. When you are absolutely clear about what you want, you only need to copy others who have achieved it before you, and you will eventually get the same results that they have. But note that this will not come easily, you must be ready to commit to that same course till it yield fruits. You must be patients and persistent in your course, while understanding that every good course must have its setbacks.
This is referred to in the Bible as the Law of Sowing and Reaping, which says “Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap”. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For you and me, the most important expression of this universal law is “Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects”. In other words, “thought is creative”. Your thoughts are the primary creative forces in your life. You can create your entire world by the way you think. All the people and situations in your life have only the meaning you give them by the way you think about them. My own very life is an example. I don’t believe in your definition or opinion of me. What I believe in the most is what I think about my own self, and not what others think of me.
The most important principle of personal or business success is simply this: You become what you think about most of the time. Whatever you see or experience is the expression of the thinking of the people behind the phenomenon.
Whatever you truly believe with feelings, becomes your reality. One of the best success strategies of all is for you to refrain from judging other people or situations until you have enough information to make an informed decision. The worst beliefs you can have are “self-limiting” beliefs. You must accept as a basic principle that you are a “no-limit” person and that what others have done, you can do as well. Free your mind from doubt and fear. Whatever you expect with confidence becomes your own self-fulfilling prophecy. When things go wrong, as they do continually, instead of over-reacting, sit down with the other person in a spirit of friendliness and ask questions to determine exactly what happened. There is usually a good reason for everything.
Expect the best of yourself. Imagine that you can accomplish everything that you put your mind to do. Imagine that your future is limited only by your own imagination and that whatever you have accomplished up to now is only a small part of what you are truly capable of achieving. Imagine that your greatest moments lies ahead and that everything that has happened to you up to now has merely been preparation for the great things that are yet to come your way. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world; it corresponds with your dominant patterns of thinking. Your outer world reflects your inner world in every way. Nothing can happen to or for you in the long-term until it corresponds to something inside of you. So, keep soaring and never think you are limited in any way. You are filled with potentials and I believe you can do more. I always say you are made of more, this is because I know your worth. Standup my friend and start pushing for your future. No one owns your future, but you. Take it or leave it. I wish you the best, I love you.
