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.

Location: Denver, Colorado, United States

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.

The Royal Road To Success

Persistence is the royal road to success.

If you have this one quality, you will succeed in anything.

Lack it, and you will be a failure in life.

Persistence is to success what carbon is to steel, an essential ingredient.

In any endeavor, you will meet adversity after adversity, within and without, and unless you persist through them all, you will not be able to refine your raw understanding of something into the sophisticated knowledge that you need to succeed.

We learn from our mistakes.

They are a feedback loop, a necessary evolutionary process.

It’s always exciting to start a new project—build a business, shape a better body, embark on a fascinating relationship—but sooner or later, you will come up against something that you don’t know how to handle, something beyond your current range of knowledge, something outside your skill level.

Most people at this point, quit.

Yet this virgin country is exactly what needs to be conquered.

At the very beginning, you have to make a commitment to persist and to see your adventure through to completion.

And sometimes you will fail completely, and you can’t persist on a certain project; but, you have to get up, wipe the dust off your clothes, and try another project. And if that fails try another one, and if that fails try another one.

This is how people become millionaires, famous scholars, brilliant scientists, fabulous artists, and great leaders. They fail their way to success.

Life is difficult. It is not easy for anyone. Yet some people appear to have a life of tremendous success and achievement, doing and having things that others can only dream of. These are the people who have passed the persistence test.

Evolution itself is the evidence of persistence.

Even if your whole life has been a miserable failure, begin now anew.

Choose something that you really want to do. Make a commitment to see it to completion. Then begin, and don’t stop until you get it.

Does The Law Of Attraction Work?

For all your failings, and despite your many mistakes, life has picked you; it has believed in you, and it has given you a human body to explore its vast regions.

Using your will, you have sought to change the surface of your world, and time and again, you have felt despair and frustration when what you hoped to manifest either did not appear or appeared somehow diminished when it finally did show up.

Does the Law of Attraction not work?

Does it work for some and not others?

Does it work some of the time and not at other times?

Let me explain.

But, first, we must understand the concept of wholeness.

The literature on this subject is exhaustive—ranging from obscure references in sacred texts to the findings of physicists—consciousness is inextricably connected with the whole and cannot be separated into parts.

The entire notion of separation is an abstraction only. For anything to exist at all, be it as obscure as a dust particle, the whole of causation is necessary.

Even the idea of an objective reality, long a tenet of science, has now been refuted by quantum mechanics.

A subatomic element can either be a particle or a wave, depending on how the experiment is measured.

In other words, the conscious intention of the observer determines what is observed.

What has this got to do with the Law of Attraction?

Pretty much everything.

You, the observer of reality, influence the quantum field, with every thought and feeling that you have.

You are always manifesting, whether you like it or not.

Most often, however, you are manifesting what you don’t want and then blame it on the Law of Attraction for failing.

See, in order to change any aspect of your reality, whether it is a condition of aloneness, poverty, or illness, you have to change WHO YOU ARE and not WHAT YOU WANT.

When you are in a state of want, your vibrations are that of lack, regardless of what you may be visualizing or affirming.

Consequently, your realization comes back to you void or stripped down to a pathetic version of what you truly desired.

Thus, for example, if you are poor and need a job, and you affirm and visualize diligently, your underlying sense of lack may either give you nothing or it will give you a job that is totally unsatisfying to you.

Why does this happen?

It is because you are not vibrating your desires in a clear way.

Your emotional current, regardless of what your mind is projecting, is holding on to lack, limitation, scarcity, and negativity.

When you change WHO YOU ARE you will start getting WHAT YOU WANT.

Saleem Rana is a psychotherapist in the Denver region.

How, then, can you change outer conditions? How do you move from lack to abundance, from dissatisfaction to fulfillment? My new novel, 7 Days in The Garden of the Goddess Of Wealth answers all these questions and more. It also comes with software to put your new understanding into perspective.

How To Change Your Life In An Instant

Do you want to know the secret to a life of magic and miracles?

It can be captured in a single word that speaks volumes and is the alpha and omega of all created life.

That word is love.

It is a sublime energy.

When you touch anything with love it blossoms. All of life flourishes to the touch of love.

It is the most sacred thing about us.

Despite all the cares and tribulations that you face as a human being, with many of them seemingly unbearable, it is good to discover that you are only one step away from becoming incredible.

You see, all you have to do is nurture the love within yourself, and let it rise within you like the smoke from a sacred fire, and this love will burst into a flame that will change everything before you and behind you.

Love will make you see how special and wonderful and awe-inspiring it is to be YOU!

Love will make you appreciate the wonderfulness of others.

And love will make your desires fly with joyful wings toward you.

All you have to do to awaken your spirit and your life is to deeply commit to the nurturing and expression of love.

When you do work that you love, you will find yourself never tiring.

When you share your money with love, it will come back to you multiplied, pressed down, and overflowing.

When you share your thoughts and feelings with others they will listen to everything you have to say and work in harmony with and for you.

Love, it will make the desert bloom like a rain forest. It will make your finances leap up and do back flips. It will heal all your relationships and your aloneness. It will pave the path in front of you with the gold of sunlight and will soothe you to peace like the voice of an angel.

If you are looking for the ultimate manifestation tool: it is this, this mysterious and wonderful energy called love.
