“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”
That said by one of history’s richest businessmen.
Clearly someone to pay attention to, but isn’t all this ‘law of attraction‘ stuff just a bunch of airy-fairy mysticism?
Several years back I landed on an idea that I’m neither intelligent enough or knowledgeable enough to fully exploit or explain… I believe it corresponds to a universal principle of creation, and fits various different words and contexts.
Whether for personal success or directly for career success, there are…
ACTION results from the combination of THOUGHT and EMOTION.
Learn to control these things, and we learn to create our life.
Over and over again I have found success to reduce into 3 vital factors:
- The clarity of your intent
- Your degree of organisation
- The use of your energy
Start with these three words:
See how those three words compare with the next 3 bullet points…
In the context of ‘measuring’ things:
- The degree (‘amount/level’) of yourintent for excellence
- The degree of your organization andpreparation
- The control of your action through time
And an esoteric version:
- Identify Intent
- Gather Intent
- Manifest Intent
Or another variation:
Before I lose you with this stuff… consider this simple variation of the formula showing how achievement divides clearly and obviously into 3 factors for getting things done:
- Know what you want
- Prepare for it (get ready)
- Do it
- Set the intention
- Prepare to receive
- Let it come in
Below are notes on those 3 stages of creating whatever you want. These are the 3 Keys threaded throughout the 7 Dimensions of Manifestation.
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one”. – Mark Twain
1st: KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
Key 1: Identify Intent
We have covered the practical application of this Key throughout the course.
It is unfortunate that people are unable or unwilling to allow themselves the self-acceptance and personal power to identify clearly what there heart felt desires are.
Here is some correspondence from someone who read my Life Success Report.
“I have been visiting many different web pages over the last few weeks and months.
I am very much interested in all these subjects about self-development and the related subjects.
Although I have read a lot of books over the last ten years, e.g., Louise L. Hay and similar authors, I have never dared to do it.
So here I am now, nearly forty, trying to sort something out for me. It is just recently that I discovered that I have never had any goals, life goals.
And so I started to try to find out where I am, who I am and where I want to go.”
Before we can accomplish anything, we need to take the time to develop a clear picture of what we want. And yes this will expand and clarify and improve with time. but it is vital to have a starting position as clear as we can make it right now.
“Before everything else, getting ready is the key to success”
– Henry Ford
“Begin it when it is finished”
– Jim Rohn
Mr Jim Rohn narrates a story in which he was to build his first house. He had the land and took people on a virtual tour showing them the fireplace where his descriptions were so vivid that the guest felt he was there and bumped his elbow at the fire place.
Begin it when it’s finished means first to become so clear of what we want that in effect it is complete, at least in our mental reality. And once that is achieved, to then begin it.
Of course this can lead to ‘perfectionism’ and procrastination, so we need to understand Key 2.
2nd: GET READY
Key 2: Gathering Intent
ORGANIZATION AND PREPARATION
“It is only in the doing that there is the becoming.”
How do we reconcile the contradiction between not taking action until we are well prepared, and the idea that readiness happens only from practice?
Our honest judgement combined with our weekly review keeps us ever mindful of the next movements for each project.
Are you familiar with the anecdote of the airplanes precision in direction? An airplane is on track less than 3% of the time. 97% of the time it is OFF course. So how does it manage to get from a precise point A to a precise point B? By making regular minor changes in direction to re-adjust.
We can always always identify the next action steps towards any desire. If you don’t know what the next thing to do is, well then the next thing to do is sit down and think and write about what the next things to do might be. This will always always always give you enough ideas to pursue to proceed on that aeroplanes path of 97% off course so that we make the micro-adjustments towards our desired outcome.
Organization and preparation gathers our intent (key 2) which means pulling together the energies and resources to lead us to Key 3; the actual manifestation of our intent.
Break desires into projects:
“What about a check-list for helping me to find solutions?”
Great idea! Use the following starting questions to begin a STC for each project.
- Can I give the task to someone else?
- Can I ‘buy’ a solution?
- Have I done my research?
- Are other people having the same problems?
- Did they solve it? How? Can I do the same?
- If I was someone else who could solve it, what would I do? Where would I start?
- What ideas can I write down as potential solutions, plans, starting points?
Break projects into actions and smaller projects and then into actions.
Schedule the next actions.
3rd: JUST DO IT!
Key 3: Manifest Your Intent
This happens when we take the EXACT action, or achieve the exact RESULT that we need that has the result of ACTUALLY making real something that we desired.
Allow the process to unfold, trust yourself to take the necessary actions and set up the necessary plans.
You can read my ongoing research, interests and integrations inside the 7 Dimensions of Manifestation.
Key 3 is about prioritisation, scheduling, reviewing, and being flexible in your approach to success and to stay on track.
This is covered in detail in the 3rd part of the Folderarchy Formula.
Questions that you can use right now are:
- What are the most important areas for me to work on at this time?
- What are the next steps?
- Am i motivated to do them?
- Do i know how to do them?
- Do i know how to learn or become able to do them?
- When will i do it?
