(Stephen operates a terrific blog and I highly recommend you consider what he is teaching. Visit DTAlpha)
In the book The Five Wishes the author asks the question: Imagine you are on your deathbed and you have just a short time before you leave the physical plane. A person walks up to your bedside looks at you and asks..has your life been successful?
Whatever part of your life that may have less than a positive response you have the opportunity to fix that now. The key is clear definition, commitment and action.
How does this have anything to do with question does the present create the future or does the future create the present? The future is absolutely created by the present energy you are sending out. If you are in a state of viewing everything as a problem, if you think everyone is out to get you, or everyone and everything is there in a less than perfect state so you are constantly angry about it then you will attract more of what will fuel that behavier.
So if you decide that a new career, a new or vastly improved relationship, a trip around the world or whatever it is that is part of your “yes answer” to the question has your life been successful, then commit right now to making that happen and take the steps necessary to make that happen. Whatever this list is – it becomes your commitment list. I cover this is greater detail at http://prosperitynow.prosperityroadmap.com/commitment.html
For me the real key was not in the intellectual understanding of what Stephen is saying and the congruency with my own belief system but how do I do this. I mean how do I really change who I am if who I have been has not met my expectations? I developed the Prosperity Now System to help me shift my thinking to what is possible and then achieve it. A growing group of people are finding this to be very helpful. Take a look at the most recent session at http://prosperitynow.prosperityroadmap.com/now.html which is all about the Power of Now – another one of Stephen’s points.
Notice the road many people we think of as being very successful have traveled. I personally know of a couple very successful people who have been shot, been bankrupt, had no resources and yet today are doing extremely well by most standards. Very inspirational. Thank you Stephen
Until the next time:
