I need to write this out to myself for future referral:
Success Is A Mindset
Do you get it?
I had a problem with the amount of air Rhonda Bryne in respect to how I can attract money using the law of attraction.
What I am deeply grateful for was how she introduced me to David Schirmer, a successful trader and businessman who went from humble beginnings filled with hardship to multi millionaire using the law of attraction.
But what stuck in my mind, during the short presentation of money and the law of attraction within The Secret dvd, was what David said.
This was what had be do some more research on the guy only to find a wealth of information about him and the work he does.
David Schirmer said – “Wealth is a mind set. It is all in how you think…”
And I ask you this, “do you get it?”
I never DID get it and maybe Rhonda felt that since this is the most important thing to get there (Loral Langemeier was brilliant as well, not to mention Marci and Jack as well you know…heck everyone was awesome!) that she felt she should cut the teachers of The Secret short because we got it.
Yes I am a bit annoyed about that due to the amount of work, and releasing of blockers and truth seeking in connection to the law is and has been one of the most intensive self taught “course” I have ever decided to undertake.
…at least Rhonda Bryne could have alerted me of that don’t you think?
The journey has been nothing less than beautiful though I have to say J
That is what lead to this article.
The beauty of the going back to the fundamentals is much like watching a movie for the second time around, things you missed the first time become revealed increasing my understanding of the subject.
That is how what David Schirmer said began highlighted almost for me like Inspiration tells me “Musa do you remember what he said? About wealth begin a mindset? Could it also be true about success? Is success a mindset too?”
You see that just made me stop…and think…
Steve Pohlit was promoting a link to his website the other day via his twitter account in which he wrote some of the likes that the 1% rule is not a ratio but a mindset.
It’s said that the top 1% of the people in the world receive around about 97% of the money being that can be earned in the world.
So today I insert a couple of coins in the vending machine today with a feeling of not really wanting to eat the junk this cash machine is offering and as a result most of my coins where accepting, everything else came out by the “take your change” slot.
The button you push to release the change on the vending machine was not working (did you know that the technician can wire the vending machine that way? You push the button and I fails to respond. I didn’t ask why though, but surely to capitalist intensions) so I stopped to think about success.
So there I am, funnelling through the change that managed to survive being captured by the capitalist policies of the vending machine from my left hand through my right hand and then through my left hand again, looking at the machine not with resentment but in, well I would say deep, focused thought.
Then the voice in my head said, with the ever so peaceful stillness I am coming to associate with and become familiar with these days, Success Is A Mindset.
A person’s mindset, or how her mind is set, determines how he responds to things.
It is in how she response that his actions can be seen as those of a successful person or not.
Let’s make subjective example: you.
I can feel you adjusting your seat after I said that, yes you, let’s make an example of what I am talking about her with you as one of my examples.
A. Something happens in your life that changes things as there were, do you rant and rave, bitching like the rest, feel hurt or sad, and collect other past experiences that match in some way or the other to your current discomfort or misfortune. Being in a mood on injustice and unfairness that like for weeks on end.
B. Do you recognise the change and look for opportunities within the supposed failure or defeat, analyzing what you have gained from your loss (yes, read that again…analyze what you have Gained from your Loss), having a laser focus outlook in life and telling yourself that what you want is already yours, it’s just a matter of time until I have it. Having “it will work because I will make it work” perspective. An attitude you deliberately work on applying and improving, applying and improving, applying and improving X 10 until it becomes a habit.
Doing something new is usually rejected by the mind, even if it is good for you. This is true until the “new” has become a habit. And I read, I invite you to dispute this until you have personal experience of how true it is, somewhere that the “thing” becomes a habit after it as been done for a period of 10 times…or was it a full 30 day period, everyday not missing a day in between? Like I said, do the research.
So are you A or B?
There is no in betweener you are either the former or the latter, then again go betweeners usually fall in the A category so either answer you will be aware of where you are mentally.
Were you are mentally has a direct link of were you are physically.
Think about it…pun intended.
Girl #1 goes around holding a feeling of success and sees herself becoming, VERY IMPORTANT you SEE and even more powerful FEEL the good you would like to experience, and making a success of her life, even going as far as writing it out on a piece of paper an unaudited plan of what she feels needs to happen before she becomes. Feeling and seeing and feeling and seeing the exact same feelings and experiences she would feel and experience once the thing(s) she wanted to happen happened.
Girl #2 goes around bad mouthing other people’s successes. “it’s not his money.” “she slept her way to the top,” “she doesn’t deserve it,” “he didn’t work hard for what he has,” “she’s lucky,” whenever asked “so what would you like to do with your life,” followed up “well I don’t know” or “I’m not sure” or the same thing she said 2-5 years ago with no signs of her hustling towards her desire. It’s one thing to do as one of the Japanese Proverb states “A Clever Hawk Hides Its Claws” but it’s either you have results or you don’t.
To find out whether you are a successful person or not, look at your results.
The results don’t lie.
So Musa use your successful mindset as beacon to eliminate all of the crap that burn to nothingness from your touch with you only focusing on what you are becoming, not what you were.
Like Dr. Joe Vitale wrote in his Attractor Factor:
Step One – Know what you don’t want
Step Two – Select what you would like to have, do, or be
Step Three – Get clear
Step Four – Feel how exciting it would be to have, do, or be what you want
Step Five – Let Go
Yes, I wrote that for you because I wanted you to go re-read it. It would be like watching a movie the second time.
In reading the personal development material I have been reading over the years I thought about the many a elements of success – this I did voluntarily so to break focus from a particular relationship challenge I am beginning to overcome.
One of the elements of success I immediately drooled over that quickly grabbed my attention was the saying “action speaks louder than words” which has brought new meaning to it than it did before learning about the laws of success – which also includes the sub law referd to as the law of attraction.
Even David Schirmer, one of The Secret teachers, also makes reference to this (see www.signpoststofreedom) of how being a walking encylopedia will not bring you success.
You must take action!
Truth be told watching and reading things like The Secret and thinking that if you only think about success, without any corresponding CONTINOUOS action, success will come to you.
This is partially true therefore you would mostly experience partial success.
Prayer and affirmations are both part of the same parcel as they are both tools that create our experiences.
And if they are both left unchecked, which is mostly the case since all the magic of creation happens in our subconscious “unconscious” mind any way, we run the risk of living a life with a variety of results.
Your “ups and downs” of life having a life of their own.
And who said the only time your prayers and affirmations “count” would be when we consciously take part in these practises of change.
Dear loveable reader it is when these acts of creation are done without thinking, unconsciously (“subconsciously”) that they are the most effective.
That prolonged thought you have, that prolonged emotion you hold on to and allow to occupy permanent residence in your body, the casual words you have with people you speak to even the name calling you mumble to yourself, these are, my beloved highly successful infinite being, the very prayers and affirmations that literally create our lives!
Formal or informal they still do the trick.
Apart from looking at your current results to see what type of words, feelings, thoughts and actions or inactions you associate with yourself – take the role of an observer today and look at what kind of creations you are creating with every thought, word and actions you feel.
With one quick assessment ask yourself: Do they make me feel good or bad?
With that quick assessment you will then see wich of the two roads – good or bad – you are travelling on and then you will immediately begin to limit and break focus on one and increase and expand on the other.
It’s a habit that must be lovingly, deliberatly and persistent be practiced daily until it has replaced your old unsuccessful ones.
You will begin to pick up momentum as you keep on looking at life as half full.
And then you will one come to a point of having developed a skill that will mentally blocking all negative thinking, focusing on how things should be not how they are.
I bless you days with an unlimited supply of happiness in many a forms and multiple streams.
Love & gratitude.

What I need to be careful of is to avoid resentment.
Resenting the entire process of
and the list goes on adding fuel to my self-created misery, will only lead to them increasing and expanding because all my focus is on them.
This is called the “Rat Race,” getting up going to work so that I can pay my expenses off, with me reasoning that for me to pay them off completely I must either get a second job or a job promotion.
So here I am running faster on this treadmill, getting a promotion and a higher income, that automatically makes me qualifying for more credit not caring about how the more I earn is the more I am taxed.
So even before my salary reaches my hands, the government takes its share.
I then see the money in my account but I would need to make a withdrawal based on how much debit orders are going to need for them to make a successful savage attack on my single source of already taxed earned income I receive ONCE every 4 WEEKS.
Leaving me with about 10%, if not a deficit of 10%, on my account to survive on for the next time a get paid, in a month’s time.
So here I am, living from paycheck to paycheck, while acquiring or “managing” my debt, expenses that at times exceed my income, thinking that the solution to my discomfort is working harder for my money.
Being a slave to money.
The thought of “having money working harder for me,” never entering my mind.
And being a master to money.
All the while making the rich woman richer at the expense (pun intended) of my energy and time.
I exchange my time and energy for money, because growing up that was all I heard.
“Go to school, get a job, and work hard for your money, buy more assets which in fact sit on your liability column because they take money out of your pocket – therefore sitting in someone else’s assets column.”
If I worked hard enough I can get married, buy a house, a car, have kids, buy a bigger house, and a bigger car, go on vacations (thank God for credit cards, I say to myself) and take my kids to private schools because that was the sales pitch I bought into while growing up.
Well I’m grown up now and all that was bull.
I’ve grown up now and worked my ass off on getting into the rat race faster than most people my age at the time, thinking that the rest, the “good life,” will unfold by itself with little or no effort on my part since I’ve done the “hard part.”
It hasn’t even started.
Like being trapped in a cycle that makes “rest” & “enjoy” or catch a breather for just 2 days.
I knew something needed to change for change for happen.
Drowning sorrows for 2 days & going back to the 5 day battle I choose to endure come Monday.
That’s when, like a Godsend, I first discovered what Dr. Joe Vitale calls ”the escalator to life.”
The easy way to getting what I wanted in increasing quantities, on a continuous basis.
Which include having millions of sources of incomes that I setup and leave with them generating money for me whether I wake up or not.
And for me to increase this abundant flow of income I would just need to add another income stream to the multiples I already have & there I go.
No alarm clock to wake up to get up early in the morning.
No office rules.
No office politics.
No being broke 2 days into after just getting paid.
The only catch is the tax that I would have to pay, but if I were to do it right I might even get to keep the money that I make, with it getting taxed AFTER I’ve received it.
And that’s how I aim to kill a rat.
By attending seminars, going to workshops that train me on new skills I need to develop so that I can master the effortless ways of being a multi millionaire, all the while using my earned income from my job to create a self sustaining flow of passive income and portfolio income.
My parents spend thousands of rands getting me an education to become broke, poor and middle class
(unintentionally so, because all I was was a broke middle class working for the rich),
so it will only make sense for me to pay thousands of rands to get the education and experience I need to become rich – thousands of rands I would only get back in return through my overwhelmingly successful business & investment ventures.
And I managed to get a mentor while I was at it.
How To Kill A Rat
because most of the time people know the path, but there’s a difference knowing the path and walking it.
Here’s to your freedom.
Have a merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and an Abundantly Prosperous New Year.
(that’s includes you too sis’ Fikile!)
Yours in grateful expectations.

I enjoy living in my own world, teaching myself about the law of attraction pointing at things and saying to myself, “I attracted that!”
Sinusitis is having a field day with my face today, but what I need do is focus on healing and being grateful for it.
Making a deliberate effort of projecting an image in my mind of a health version of myself will increase the healing process.
I have found that nature always leans on the side of progress, increase, abundance, perfect health and eternal love, peace and spontaneous joy and laughter, gratitude, happiness and passion.
If I am not in a healthy positive mood, I am being unnatural.
I might be normal but not natural.
I am some how standing in the way of my freedom and positive attitude.
Actually it’s my ego that is standing in the way, always in need of attention, recognition and to be comfort and to feel superior.
The blockage holds back the loving energy that I and all things are, you included by the way, and this build up causes discomfort, tension, stress, pain and struggle.
Which comes to me in the form of negative people or circumstance and even irregular bodily functions.
When this is just a belief that I can first change by changing my perception of it.
“When I judge someone, I do not define them, I define myself.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
So my negative belief about something or someone is in fact the negativity I associate myself with at the same time.
This error in thinking is against the essence of what makes the world tick – which is variations of positively-inclined, abundant energy – and will therefore cause my to experience temporary discomfort.
It’s like swimming against the tide of the universe. A universe which you are a part of.
Today’s recommendation is Hale Dworskin’s The Sedona Method, which is a must have if you want to learn of a way to “heal” limiting beliefs that cause pain, disease, even failure.
Image releasing the things in your mind that block you from using the full 100% of your energy, portions of which are locked fueling past concepts that are limiting your current success…, loving relationships and perfect health included!
Now as to what might be the cause of my dis-ease…
“Dis-ease cannot live in a body that is at ease.” – Bob Proctor in The Secret.
…that needs more than a blog for me to write on.

PS. I have come to having faith in the fact that all events lead to the same outcome. And it is always a positive one.
Even Jack Canfield mentioned in his The Success Principles(TM): How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be that “everything that happens in your life is leading you towards your goal” so it’s only natural for me to see the good in all experiences, even the not so cool ones.
That is why in the temporary condition I am in, a condition that is making its way out of my body as we speak, I was inspired to bring to your attention this releasing technique that works according to testimonials.
But I’ve always prefer experience of being a far greater teacher amongst all.
Buy the book – it was going for $11.56 on amazon at the time of this posting), change your life, and prosper.
…the purpose behind me writing this was to rant about how this study of the law of attraction is …not so easy!
But that was before I was led to a facebook group called Delibate Creations.
The group name on its own made me recalled the message that I kept on hearing but under a different light.
I keep on hearing how us humans are “individuations” of God, at a minituarized.
But deep down, I see know, that I have rejected the idea of being God because such a statement, I felt, was offensive to God making it “un-Godlike” and therefore being of the devil.
Little did I know was that it was due to this lack of understanding of why this is so that I will forever keep blaming everything and everyone outside of myself for the results I am having.
That due to my incomplete teaching that I speak of God’s will with the impression that there is no partnering involves between me and Her that makes this will, His will, envoked in my life.
The impression that God is there & I am here, and my purpose in life was to make God happy & follow His commandments or else God won’t be happy and will be sent to hell as a result.
Punishing me for my sins.
It was under the above understandings that ranting about how things don’t work would have been justified.
But now this is not the case.
Amongst the misleading biblical scripture of how God should be feared and how women should be subordinates to me it is written that God made us humans in the image and likeness of Herself.
Even Jesus said that that which he did, we will also do.
It was from such Truths that statements like “We Become What We Think About” began to emerge from the like of Earl Nightingale.
Statements which are repeated in different ways but mean the same thing, and all boil down to this:
We create our lives through the thoughts we think.
Just like God we create all that we are experiencing with the thoughts we all to flash randomly within our minds but unlike God we are unconscious of this.
So unconscious that we live our lives according to fate, like playing russian roulette with the unconscious, living life on autopilot.
I play Actor, Scriptwriter and Director of my life but get upset when, due to the lack of control over my movie, something happens that I “did not want” to happen.
I mean what did I expect taking my hands my hands of the wheel while driving 120 km/h on the freeway, that I was going to reach my destination without hussle?
This wn’t ever happen until I stop and say, “Hey, I created that.” “What a wonderful creation.” “Damn I’m good!” “I Love you.” “I wonder what else can I create? Let me focus on getting my next Deliberate Creation manifested and see how well that goes.”
Until such a point is reached that by consciously taking control of what I think about, would I begin to take control of my life.
It obviously goes into deeper methods of instant manifestations via self suggestions, affirmations, meditations, visualization, listening to instincts and intuitions as your guides towards what you requested through constant thought with emotion (also known as prayer) and a whole lot of other stuff that will help arm your with the necessary ammunition you need to fight your old paradigm with.
Old paradigms die hard especialy since they are engrained and even second nature through time and perfection.
I’m not saying that half a decade will pass before you and I really get the hang of it, honestly accepting that noone can hurt us without our constent then would life be truly magical.
This may seem to be too much to ask and one may even revert to the old more comfortable paragdim.
But for the open minded life will take an adventure like twist to it that literally changes lives.

David Schirmer…you know…the guy from The Secret?
Get a copy of it on Amazon if you don’t have one of your own.
The “Visualize an empty parking space” guy?
He’s also a phenominal Stock Trader too.
Everybody who was under his guidance got out before the market crashed.
Last I checked, stock trading-wise he was also promoting this too.
An awesome guy.
He literally taught me what I need to know to begin my journey towards prosperity, peace, wealth, perfect health, happiness… Things I am still seeking, 2 years do the road.
“Seek & Ye Shall Find.”
David Schirmer just made the journey so much easier.
He is also involved in the Succeed Mag’ which also contributed lots to my knowlegde of how “life works,” especially the re-programming of my mind.
He is the guy who sells regardless of the referal.
When you get the chance, pay him a visit & allow him to show you the Path To Freedom, although keep in mind that it is You who has to walk it.

PS. Actually come to think of it, this all began when my cousin, Nombali Ntuli, put The Secret dvd in my hand.
A disk that came at the right time, typical of the vibrations I was in back then.
David only made it clearer, and I am abundantly grateful for both of them.
I love you.
