Key To Success

What do you do when you come across a key to success in a book you're reading? You ponder over it. Since I read many books and come across many keys, I thought it would be fun to share the ideas that arise as I contemplate a key to success. Reading is not just about absorbing information, it's also about contemplating, allowing the ideas to blossom within, and nurturing a seed tossed in the rich soil of the inner garden.

I got my Master's degree in psychotherapy more than a decade ago. Since then I've studied the human condition with fascination. Over the years, I've learned a singular lesson: your life does not work when you oppose your soul nature. If you want a magical life, you have to drop your inauthentic transactions with the world. You discover your own power when you spend time alone to figure out what you really love to do.

How To Make Money

Something that is never taught in all our years of education is how to make money. Yet this is a complex subject. Your life and well being depend on it.

The more you study of it, the more you will have of it. While it is not possible to talk in detail here about how to study money or the many ways that one can make money, it is possible to grasp the direction you need to take.

The starting point is to make a study of it. Then you have to practice what you have studied. It doesn’t matter where you begin your study—whether it is learning how to manage your money, or how to invest it, or how to create an enterprise that will begin to attract more money into your life.

Then you have to get rid of any money issues that you have—any subconscious blocks about it. If you don’t have enough money, there is some way that you are resisting having more and even repelling it. Since money is such an emotionally-charged subject, most people have huge resistance to getting more. While they claim to want it, they also hold contradictory and conflicting beliefs about money. You have to get clear that you want more money.

As in most things in life, you can’t get anywhere unless you take a position. You have to take a position in relationship to money. If you are trading stocks, you have to take a position—do you want to go long or short in a given market? If you hold a job, you have to take a position on it—do you want to rise in your company or look for another opportunity? If you are an entrepreneur, you have to take a position—what do I want to sell, to whom, and for how much?

The position is a point in space and time. The ideal space is here. The ideal time is now. In other words, you have to be fully present to your opportunity here and now. When you think of the past, you have to relate the events then to where you are now. When you think of the future, you have to relate the imagined events to where you are now. Here and now, then, is your only point of power.

How do you get what you want? You have to do something. And in order to do something, you have to be something. This, then, creates what you have. If you do like a professional marketer, for example, then you will have the rewards of that profession. Similarly, if you do little or nothing, then you will have little or nothing. Your action determines your results. And your actions spring from who you are as a person. You have what your actions bring you.

Who you are is actually a highly-intelligent and capable being, and if you come from that position of personal self-acceptance, then you will learn what to do, begin doing it, and start having more of what you want. When you set your intention, you will perceive your vision in three-dimensions, and you will begin to act in ways that bring you more of what you want.

Do you see how simple it all is? Why then do people struggle with money? It is because they do not study and practice it; they do not have enough emotional clarity about money; they do not take a position in relationship to the marketplace; and, they do not believe that they are worthy, do not act, and, consequently, do not get what they want.
