The Method for Getting What You Desire the Most


Share Button

I love the writings of Genevieve Behrend, who is the only student the famous philosopher and metaphysical teacher Thomas Troward ever had. In her book called “Attaining Your Desires” from 1929, Ms. Behrend shares many of the lessons she learned from Troward, in a format that recreates a private classroom, in which we can be the “pupil” asking questions while Troward is the “sage” helping us to discover insight and truths about getting what we want and changing our results.

Here’s a passage I think you’ll enjoy, and after you’ve read it, I suggest taking a moment to think about what it means to you. Perhaps this is the first time you’ve considered the truth that you are the center of your own world, and you create the reality you experience. Evelyn. Now here’s Genevieve:

HOW YOU CAN CONTROL CIRCUMSTANCES AND ERRONEOUS CONDITIONS

SAGE: In essence they are the same. You are able to control the circumstances and conditions relative to your individual world, of which you are the center, by making your thoughts and feelings correspondent in quality (at least in a degree) to what you believe are those of the originating, intelligent forces of life.

PUPIL: Is it true that the life in me contains everything that I, as an individual, could ever require? Are my  thoughts and feelings the centralizing power of my particular world? If so, then [Robert] Browning explains the situation when he says, “We carry within us the wonders we seek without us.” If I know and practice this great fact, the wonder of Life’s understanding power will come forth in me by its own divine right, and assume command over all my problems in exactly the same degree that I recognize it. Is that correct?

SAGE: Yes, Browning has voiced the truth in that sentence. The divine Principle in you is complete, and is  the only Life there is. But this should not lead you into the error of believing that you are not to exert yourself. Remember  that  the  life-germ  in  you  is  an  Intelligence which can call into specific action all of life’s forces from out the entire universe, but it can only work through your intelligence in correspondence to what you confidently believe it can and will do. Therefore, be practical in your reasoning, and diligent in your deeds.

Suppose I give you an example: You have a glass of  dirty water. In order to have the clear water, you would continue to pour the clean water into the glass of dirty water until every drop of the dirty water had flowed out of it, wouldn’t you? The same rule applies to adverse conditions. Pour into them a steady stream of confidence  in the power of God in you to change them, and they will change, correspondingly.

 

3 Steps to Stop Stressing Over Your Finances and Business Sales

Do you find yourself stressing constantly about work? A lot of people do! And yet there is a way out of all that worry, anxiety and fretting. The key is deciding what MINDSET you want to have in charge of this area of your life. Do you want the same Mindset most people use as their default:  React, Worry, Feel Sick, Stab Wildly at a Task on Your List, Try Harder and Harder to Get Ahead, Feel Like a Loser, Start All Over Again…?
 
Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?
 
And yet, it’s pretty much what we were all trained to do starting early in childhood. What do I mean by “trained”? Well, it’s certainly not that we had specific lessons at school on how to be successful, how to think in an empowering way, how to come from within and access the One Mind that has all the answers to everything that ever was and ever will be (Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein and many others actually did learn to access the One Mind, and brought their ideas and inventions back to us to use in the physical realm.) The only difference between successful people and someone who is still yearning for a thriving business or a promotion at work, is that the successes of the world learn how to use the steps that truly do work to create change.
 
Back to the idea that we were trained to fail. It’s not that parents and teachers deliberately sat us down and said, “Here are the steps to take to stay safe, to blend with the crowd, to not stand out and draw too much attention to yourself” – but that was the inherent message passed down to them and their parents, going back thousands of years in history.  When we pick up on that Mindset of Safety from all the people around us while we are growing up, it can be very challenging to break free from that and succeed the way we yearn to do.
 
A Mindset is also known as a Paradigm. You may have come across that term before. Your Paradigm is similar to the operating system on your computer, whether you use a PC or a Mac. Nothing can run without that operating system (OS). Now, the human mind is far more complex and powerful than any OS, no matter what you might see in SciFi films or read in futuristic books where machines take over the world.
 
The problem with Mindset lies in our unawareness that it is there. We go through life almost like zombies, simply reacting to circumstances and conditions around us. Someone acts like a jerk, and unless you are aware and make mindful choices, you’ll automatically react with anger, annoyance and irritation, in a reflexive reaction that takes no thought at all.
 
To be truly free in life and enjoy all the abundance, prosperity, business and career success, and thriving relationships at work and home, it requires that you wake up your sleeping mind!
 
You’ve probably heard from many sources a variation of the quote “We become what we think about.” It’s in the Bible, it’s in Emerson’s essays, it’s throughout our literature and yet… it’s as if we repeat the words like a parrot and don’t bother going any deeper. If we truly grasped the meaning of the concept — we become what we think about — we’d catch ourselves and change our thoughts when we say in what I call “self-chat” defeating phrases like “I’ll never get ahead,” “This job is way outside my pay grade,” “There’s a glass ceiling and the sooner I admit it, the better off I’ll be.”
 
What kind of self-sabotaging thoughts do you secretly have? I say “secretly” not because you are trying to keep them private — but because they are hidden from you!

Plan Your Business Like a 7-Figure CEO  by Lisa Sasevich

Displaying

Recently, a member of my Sales Authenticity and Success Mastermind asked me about my planning process. How do I decide what my business priorities will be? What mindset do I employ?

Since fall is the perfect time for you to start planning your own six- or seven-figure business for the coming year, I thought I’d share with you what I told her:

1. Listen, Act, Trust.

This is my mantra, which I practice all year long. To begin your own planning process, start with listening. Lessons and messages are everywhere, so you want to notice what things keep showing up. Do you keep ending up in a certain market segment or with certain partners, or are your clients asking you for certain things? Can you feel your Trusted Source pulling or pushing you in a certain direction over and over? Listen to that and consider if those messages are pointing the way for your business. You know what they say: If you don’t listen to the taps, you could be asking for the 2×4!

2. What would you love to NOT do anymore?

What do you want to let go of in your business? Or, maybe you like everything you do, but you know you can’t keep adding to your plate without taking something off. Therefore, what could you let go of that you could make up the loss of in other ways? For instance, if you decided that JV and affiliate partnerships weren’t a perfect fit for you anymore, you might make up the loss of the leads through doing a telesummit, podcast or Facebook ads.

3. Use the four Irresistible Offer Litmus Test Questions.

And, finally, to create a very solid foundation for a six- or seven-figure business that serves you as well as your clients, apply the same litmus test to your planning process that you used to design your Irresistible Offer. Those four questions are:

• What is the transformation you want to offer? Even if you’ve had a successful business for years, you’re always evolving and growing, so take the time to look at what’s in your heart. What is the transformation you most want to offer and work on now? In many cases it’s a slight upleveling from the year before, which encompasses what you have already built.

• How would you deliver that transformation? Now that you know what transformation you are committed to providing, you can take a look at how you would deliver it. Most people make the mistake of thinking about delivery first. But putting the transformation first is the key to serving more people and making your sales conversion machine a profit- and difference-making machine. So do you want to be doing live speaking and events? Or has your life come to a place where you want to minimize being on the road so you would prefer a more virtual model. Maybe teleseminars and webinars. Or maybe you want a hybrid, like our model. In any case, you want to take two things into account here: your lifestyle and which delivery model best serves the transformation you are working to provide.

• Is it leveraged? There are only so many hours in a day, so to get to the six- or seven-figure level while still leading a balanced life you’re going to love, you need to be working with more than one person at a time. Will the delivery model you chose above allow for that?

• Do I love it? This is key. You want to be doing what you love, standing on your own dime, not fulfilling somebody else’s idea of what you should do. So even if the signs seem to be pointing in a particular direction, if you don’t love it, don’t go there. And this is important for the delivery model you chose too. If you’re tired of being alone behind your computer, maybe it’s time to build in speaking and some live events or workshops.

BONUS: Give yourself some space.

Don’t try to plan a big future on a sticky note. Use a wall poster. Get everything off your desk. Give yourself actual, physical space to plan the business and life of your dreams.
