You Fear the Sabre-tooth

6753809I read somewhere that the brain is wired since the stone age to think negatively so to protect us from the dangers that existed then.

Sabre-tooth as an example.

These days this negative thinking works overtime, stopping us from getting ahead in life.

Because we fear trying something new.

Fear of the Sabre-tooth.

This happens without us even realizing.

Without reading, preferably instructional books, then nothing will contradict that thinking.

You could even try swapping listening to the car radio station or your phone playlist for an audiobook.

The hours you spent while traveling, could be spent sharpening your mind against the Sabre-tooth.

Marvel_avengers_alliance_sabretooth_by_ratatrampa87-d6tj8tgThe benefits of investing in yourself will eventually be seen via your outlook in your life.

Maybe that’s what you need.

Maybe that’s what need.

A different outlook.

That comes from developing a habit of reading or listening daily to go sh*t.

Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

~ Musa

Wallace Wattles Quote

“hold the vision of yourself in the right business, with the purpose to get into it, and the faith that you will get into it, and are getting into it; but act in your present business.

Use your present business as the means of getting a better one, and use your present environment as the means of getting into a better one.

You can advance only by being larger than your present place; and no man is larger than his present place who also leaves undone any work pertaining to that place.

The world is advanced only by those who more than fill their places.

Do, every day, all that can be done that day.

If, now, it is possible for you to make each act an efficient one, you see again that the getting of riches is reduced to an exact science, like mathematics.

You can make each act a success, because all power is working with you; and all power cannot fail.

…successful action is cumulative in its results.” – Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

I Guess, In Life, That Would Be The Fun Part Of It All, How Plans Don’t Have To Make Sense In Order For Us To Achieve Success

Have you ever considered doing something that has nothing to do – at a conscious level – with getting closer to the goal you have set for yourself but were enticed to do it regardless, as if it would be that butterfly effect my friend mentioned in passing?

How a single flap of a butterfly’s wing could cause a tidal wave due to the law of compounding action. Of how even our slightest gesture can lead to an endless series of effects that can have a dramatic effect on the whole planet.

Because most of us don’t see life from a bird’s view, the whole mosaic of it all.

We can’t see how even the most insignificant inspired act can eventually link to the major goals we set for ourselves. Our own customized tailor-fit ultimate shortcut to success.

“The Universe rewards action.” – Dr. Joe Vitale http://www.mrfire.com

Trust.

If you can’t trust yourself then who can you trust?

There are unexplainable events and thoughts that we have & come across in life. I am so, so, so tired of wanting to find out the “whys” in their functionality. Wallace Delois Wattles was right when he wrote how it was best I not waste my time in tumbling down the rabbit hole of why these …laws, principles, truths work.

I should just get to using them and only after I get the results that I want would I then faff about the HOW they work.

It’s just that going on a limb over a hunch or an impulsive idea is so uncanny. I mean, what would the neighbours think (Musa grins)?

At some point we have to come to terms that we aren’t just these meat suits we carry around that need to go to the toilet, sleep and eat, amongst other things, but we are a condensed form of the same thing.

Energy.

A condensed form of energy that has instant access to Infinite Intelligence. I say this because energy does not die. It merely changes form.

Thought is energy.

So every thought man has ever thought still exists, right now, in invisible form. Like a vibration. Not “like” but it IS vibration since one of the characteristics of energy is that it vibrates.

Condensed meat suits of vibration we are.

We attract whatever it is we are in vibrational harmony with (the Law Of Vibration) and one of the ways we do this is is through thought.

Thoughts are things.

Infinite Intelligence.

Can you imagine the magnitude of this concept of Infinite Intelligence?

Of how you and I can gain access to the industry changing, technology advancing thoughts of others that have lived and are still living by merely tapping into the formless substance known as Infinite Intelligence.

Get a copy of Think and Grow Rich to get an idea of what I am talking about when I talk about “Infinite Intelligence.”

And what if this Intelligence throws ”random” ideas in your head for the mere purpose of leading you towards the goals you continue to affirm and meditate over because (by Law) you are making it your dominate thought, your dominate vibration, therefore attracting it [the goal] within your line of consciousness?

Lately I’ve been reading about people who sit for ideas…

A businessman who literally cut himself off from the outside world for an hour an sat on a chair with a pen and paper ready on his desk until he received an inspired idea(s) that he used to make successful breakthroughs in his business.

That is one way of tapping into this abundant, infinite source of supply that anyone can hook on to at a conscious level for their personal development in life.

What a beautiful concept. Doesn’t that make you feel wealthy already? Don’t you just feel healthier just thinking about it? Pun intended. Doesn’t a sense of relief shower through your whole body just knowing that all you have to do is to sit it out for the answers to your most pressing concerns to be revealed to you?

The Conscious Psychology Of Success

Every thought is a prayer. And it is the dominant thoughts that God answers.

Every word we speak is a prayer. And it is the words we dominantly speak out that God answers.

Every emotion we feel is a prayer. And is the dominate emotions we feel that God answers.

Every act we do is a prayer. And it is the dominate actions we partake in that God answers.

This is, in its simplicity, the basis of the New Thought movement.

Of course you replace God for “Universe” or “Life” or whatever you would want to call the non-physical entity that is considered by scientist as Source Energy.

So how does this apply to you? In the context of the New Thought movement, we attract people and things and circumstances and events and outcomes in our lives at some level (by word and/or thought and/ or feeling and/ or deed/ action).

We have so constructed our lifestyle in such a way that we do this (attracting the events in our lives) by default – this is still obviously within the framework of the New Thought perspective.

In short, all the things that you & I are complaining about or are experiencing, was attracted by us at some plane. But hold on, before you fuel up on me, let me tell why this notion, if tested, can benefit you for the better.

Because if what I wrote is true, you would just need to adjust the way you speak or think or feel or act so that you can receive something better that what you are currently experiencing. The saying, “change begins within” can never be truer.

You can cut this down to a science: whatever it is I am getting was due to a prior dominate mood, speech, act or thinking. So if you do NOT like what you are currently getting from life, change what you are giving.

But I won’t bullshit you into thinking that when you think & feel & speak of the life you want today, all that you are asking (praying/ affirming) for will be delivered to you tomorrow.

Remember, you spent the most part of your life thinking that life, as it is for you today, is just how life is and there is no changing it. So turning around telling yourself the opposite, it’s only natural for you to come across some resistance regarding this “new thinking.”

I say keep at it, when the municipality comes over to cut off your electricity, don’t go and play victim. Acknowledge its existence. See it as an inconvenience but CONTINUE affirming, or even writing out, in present tense, how you life should be. Regardless of things that challenge your conjuring.

Every day of our lives we are continuously shovelled with small amounts of unwanted nuisances but that doesn’t mean we should focus all our energy on piling it up as it happens. Recognise that is comes with the package of being human and find ways of using it as the fertilizer of your garden of life. Use it as a feedback mechanism of finding out at what level of attraction you aiming at.

If what you receive is not what you are wanting, alter what you are praying to confirm with what you prefer receiving.

And as mentioned, prayer equals:

Thoughts;

Words;

Actions;

And Feeling.

Getting Rich By Being Poor

Driving down old potch rd it hit me how on point Letu was. The billboards in Soweto are very much different from the ones in your Rosebank, Hilton, Sandton, Hatfield areas.

But also similar in the way that they sell a lifestyle.

And people buy into it with out really noticing.

It’s something that Think and Grow Rich taught me: Autosuggestion.

Which basically means if an image keeps being fed repeatedly in your mind, we find ways of attracting it, i.e. A friend keeps going on about a certain shops where the best deals in out can be found, sooner or later you find yourself in the shop.

Or in our case every corner I turn I see 20ft billboard dedicated to selling me beer.

Because “REAL MEN DRINK BLACK LABEL.”

If the companies selling the poverty stricken a lifestyle of finding salvation at the bottom of a beer bottle were not making money of this strategy, then we would be seeing them on the main roads of our townships.

But we do.

How benefits more by keeping people ignorant in managing their lives than the people how really on this ignorance in order to make profits.

I had a discussion with one of my facebook on how for me it’s like deciding for which team I want to play for.

The Winners or the Losers.

The entrepeneur or the worker.

The power of advertising exploits the masses at a subconscious level to become dependent on business for their survival.

It is unconscious that is why most would disagree with the above statement.

A guy once ask, “How long would you survive if you stopped working today?”

Most would because the trap by business has worked too well.

Most can’t imagine the thought of having to fend for their self basing their income on performance rather than time.

I can work on serving 10 happy clients a week than reek in maybe R500 each (performance) who in turn do my marketing for me via word of mouth or I can go spend almost 10hrs a day preparing, travelling, working, travelling, returning every work day only to get paid R5k at the end of 4 weeks.

I live amongst people who find the latter easier than the former because just like billboards, you find people, media, churches, friends and family who sell the idea which could be translated as, “You rather be broke and go to work or learn increase the money you earn at will by going in to business.”

“Oh and by the way, what are we drinking today?”

Mind The Happiness, The Only Place Where True Happiness Can Be Found

Visualizing myself doing something successful or visualizing a particular future event play out to my benefit has stopped me from setting myself up for failure.

Because my attitude towards it will not be of one who is already defeated but of one who sees herself/ himself as one who is a champion.

Acting it out “again” in life would just be a formality because I would have “already” won, in the mind.

You can be anyone, do & have anything you want in your mind, and if these images of positivity are held with positive emotions and the intent to make real in the physical, God will show you how.

All you need to do is to take the inspired action that comes to you in the form of a hunch, instinct, inspiration.

That is God speaking to you, instead of you to Him, and for you to receive all you need to do is take action, especially if this act makes you uncomfortable.

For success lies at the end of your comfort zone.

For success to appear in the physical, it must first be created in the spiritual – that being your mind.

Like Mindset Expert Shelby Collinge put it: “Worry Is A Prayer Of What You Don’t Want.”

And God answers ALL prayers, most of which we reject because in taking action would take us out of our comfort zone.

At times He speaks so softly that we would need to remove ourselves from noise and find a spot where we even clear all thought and become intimately aware of our breathing, and wait patiently until the voice or idea – which we might even claim as our own – comes to us from within.

An act of going within to find God that takes patients and persistence to master…and courage too.

All the answers you need are within.

Some of which come in the form of visualizing for success (from a house chore to a board meeting presentation), instead of using visualizing for failure which leads to fear, doubt, worry – mental blockers of success.

We tend to go back to our experiences or something someone we held highly said about a particular event in our lives which led to an unwanted outcome.

And it is that outcome we project into the future when something similar arises in our lives.

“It always happens like this, I know it!”

And so it shall, not realising that faith in failure will produce that outcome just like faith in success will produce its corresponding outcome.

It’s the movie we play, influence by the people we hang out most with, the tv programmes we watch, the news, and what we say that inspires us to act – at times unconsciously – with the sponsor thought of negativity.

All we can ever create are negative results.

When on the other hand reading and implementing positive, inspiring, motivational, loving information and associating oneself with successful people can only lead to happiness.

Which I believe every human seeks, not knowing that it can be found within. And there’s no need to chase it.

If you see it in the mind with the intentional emotional purpose to acquire it (no matter how “unrealistic” it way seem), a way will be shown to you. All that is needed from you is to act when it shows up.

“By thought the thing you want is brought to you, by action you receive it.” ~ Wallace Wattles
