THE LAW OF PROSPERITY…
“If one holds himself, whatever present conditions may be, continually in the thought of prosperity, he sets into operation forces that will sooner or later bring him into prosperous conditions.”
This was the book that HENRY FORD attributed all of his success. (Written in 1897) And after reading this particular chapter, you’ll know why. IN TUNE WITH THE INFINITE
Thousands of people flock to our little town throughout the year, especially in summer. And I bet if I lined them all up and asked them why they love the beach, they’d tell us what we already know. But do we?
There are a lot of reasons, but if you think inductively for a bit, you’ll come to the answer. Now, what is Inductive Reasoning? It’s simply comparing a variety of instances with each other to see what they have in common… but what gives rise to them all. Otherwise known as the common thread for expansion…
Yes, it’s beautiful here. And this is what’s represented in the photo I took of my brother with his daughter, Alexa. So… it’s beauty. But, based on their faces, it’s also joy. Happiness. But, they’re being active, too. So, it’s health. Hm.
What makes Malibu unique… and makes all these people want to come here? It’s what I call “The Spirit of Opulence.” Originally coined by author Thomas Troward, The Spirit of Opulence embodies our love of living by the sea. An aggragated system of components that all give rise to… love.
But what about those that move to Malibu and then move away? Easy. Their love exists in other things. That’s the beauty. We all don’t want BMWs. We are individuals wanting what is unique to us.
I love the beach life so much. It brings me joy, happiness, peace, health and harmony. It’s love. And it’s what EVERYONE wants. And that’s why they come here. To get a little piece of it.
So, what’s the point?
We that live here have an opportunity. And that’s to spread love to everyone. Our love of Beach Life. Especially to the visitors. We do that with service, smiles, kindness and gratitude. And if we express that, then we get more of the same.But some might say, “if we tell them how great it is, then they’ll move here and create more traffic!” Well, a fearful thought for sure. But fear… brings more fear. Generosity brings generosity. Which do YOU want?
Join me and get into The Spirit of Malibu. Think opulent and opulence comes. And we’ll be the change we want to see in the world.
We all want good things in our lives, right? And equally, we all want to avoid the bad things. Now, the clincher or “secret” is… that we don’t realize that we are the actual creators of every aspect of our life. EVERYTHING.
And realizing this is what it means to “awaken.” To “wake up,” “be born again,” “become enlightened” or my favorite… “Pop goes the Weasel.”
So… this being the goal… To awaken and create a perfect life, we have to first believe that we can. Do you? If not… you can stop reading this right now and go back to whatever lame thing you were doing before you started reading this. OR… you can keep reading. You CHOOSE.
Okay. Here we go.
So… as I was saying, we all want good things. And here’s the brain tweak part…
To develop anything positive, you need to restrain or “inhibit” it opposing negative. Stop focusing on the negative aspect and it dissolves. No, not instantly in some cases, like you Mother-In-Law, but over time. But some WILL. But in order to do that, you need to develop and encourage the positive perception of things. All things. Get me?
What I’m saying is that your life becomes “what you give your attention to.” Exactly what you focus on. And the cool part is that you get to CHOOSE. Every day… and in every situation. You get to choose.
We take in information based on our 5 senses, then interpret what they mean to us. It’s our “perception.” Ignore the bad things and don’t give them any meaning. Things like people criticizing, being a poo-poo head as my wife calls it. Dr. No’s. FOCUS on what you want and fill your day with thinking about it. Think about it so much that you give your attention to it as fully as you can. Get INTO THE SPIRIT of it. Stop dwelling on things that hurt you and start thinking about coolness. RIGHT NOW!
You can do this. Work it like a muscle. Go to the mental gym. Become a mental Ah-nuld. But don’t expect your bicep to double it’s size after one work-out. Keep going, keep thinking about WHAT YOU WANT. Positive thoughts bring positive conditions. Guaranteed. It’s the “secret” and now it’s out…
Bing. Go get ‘em, tiger…
The word “enthusiasm” is derived directly from the Ancient Greek text, meaning “to be inspired by the Gods.” Two components make up the original term, one denoting “inspiration” and the other being “the Gods” or “divinity.”
Enthusiasm is infectious, too. Get excited to make you point.
CAUSE: You have something to say and it’s important that they listen. Say it with as much enthusiasm as you can muster. Get yourself into a state of conviction by focusing on a positive outcome. Think success…
EFFECT: They not only will get the point, but become eager to jump on board.
But keep in mind, enthusiasm is never negative. Always, always uplifting. Do it, and watch as it takes over…
