By Burt Goldman, The American Monk

Events can be manipulated to solve problems you are faced with. You can change things you’re not satisfied with.

While there’s no disputing the fact that you can’t always get what you want, it’s also true that you can exercise your innate power over the events of your life and make things go your way much more frequently.

To do so, you must understand and use the three mighty forces of power – desire, belief, and expectation. Before anything you want to happen can occur, you must desire that it happen. You must believe that it can happen. And you must expect it to happen. Let’s look at each of these three forces and then see how you can put them to work for you.

The First Power Force – Desire

Every manifestation of will is preceded by the desire to act. You must desire something before will can take action. In order to desire something, you must believe that you will gain a measure of satisfaction from it.

Anything you do, from the moment you wake up in the morning until the time you close your eyes to sleep in the evening, is precipitated by desire. Nothing is done that does not have a degree or more of desire behind it. To desire something is to feel there will be a measure of satisfaction after the getting of the thing. You cannot desire a thing unless you feel there will be some satisfaction in the attainment of that desire.

Avoidance of Pain Keeps Many People Stuck

Many people are stuck in a particular position in life simply because they feel that making a change would cause some measure of discomfort. To avoid the discomfort they linger in the existing state of affairs even though that causes discomfort as well. The sayings “Better the devil I know than the devil I don’t.” and “Don’t jump from the frying pan into the fire.” Express this sentiment.

Note the system of expectation at work here. When discomfort or pain is expected, the force works to keep you from making any change, even when the pain is imagined and may never take place.

Like all things, desire has degrees of strength. Consider the story of the disciple who went to his guru one day and asked, “Master, how do I achieve enlightenment?” The wise old guru directed the disciple to the bank of the Ganges River and had him kneel with his head over the water. Then the guru put his hand on the young man’s neck and pushed his head below the surface of the water. After a minute and a half the young disciple was frantic. He pulled and heaved and flailed his arms, but the grip was like iron. He could not get his head back out of the water. After two minutes, when it seemed as though his lungs would burst, the grip was released.

The young man’s head jerked out of the water and he took great gulps of air into his tortured lungs. The guru smiled. “Tell me,” he gently asked, ” what was your greatest desire just then?” “To breathe,” the young disciple stated emphatically. “Ah,” the guru said. “When you desire enlightenment to that degree, it shall be yours.”

To have a better understanding of desire, see it on an ascending scale, like a giant thermometer. At the bottom of the scale is zero, and at the top, one hundred.

When your desire is weak, near the bottom of the scale, it is unlikely that anything will motivate you to activate your will and accomplish the object of that desire. When your desire is near the top of the scale nothing can keep you from success in attaining that desire. To enhance desire, go to level and visualize the positive end result of what you desire to happen.

The Second Power Force – Belief

Belief is mental acceptance of some idea as being true. You accept ideas from others because they are authority figures. This setting of a belief in your mind (usually at a young and trusting age) comes about because you have absolute trust in the authority (generally the parent, sometimes the religious or educational institution, sometimes another trusted outside agency such as a relative, peer, or the media).

This acceptance can come about even when there are facts that contradict it. Reinforcement of beliefs strengthens until, faulty or true, they become a fundamental part of your thought processes. To entrench matters more, now beliefs are tested through the structure of the faulty belief, thereby compounding the problem. What this means is that you only accept information that reinforces the belief. Information that contradicts the belief is rejected.

The Third Force of Power – Expectation

Expectation is a mighty power indeed — so much so that a doctor can take an inert pill and tell a patient that it is a powerful drug, and the patient will react as though the actual drug had been taken. This well-documented phenomenon is called the placebo effect. It might also be called the “expectation effect.”

Of course, the placebo effect does not work all of the time. If it did, no one would bother with drugs at all. They would simply use placebos. It does, however, work with a significant and measurable percentage of success.

Expectation can be a powerful force in one’s life. How can you use expectation as a force in your life? Can you simply expect good things to happen and they will happen?

When you are told something by an authority figure you respect – say, a doctor, a teacher, a parent, or your boss – those words have an effect on all three levels, the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. When you believe this authority figure without hesitation or reservation, then that person’s expectation of you is more likely to come to be. With respect to your own expectation of yourself, however, you might well tell yourself, “I’m going to expect this to happen” only to hear a small voice responding, “Who are you kidding?”

The trick is to make yourself the respected authority figure. Expectation is enhanced with our techniques that entail going to one’s Alpha level and creating the visual imagery of the desired event already having taken place. This technique has a dual effect: it puts you in the position of acting as your own authority, and it reinforces your experience of yourself that way.

The more successful you become, the more you believe in yourself and the better you become at triggering the anticipated positive result of whatever event you are trying to bring about. As you grow into a better person better begets better and you do indeed grow better and better.

To build expectation, go to level and visualize the event as already having happened. When you come out of the alpha level, think about the event happening by a predetermined date. You will find more and more expected events coming to pass.

To help you change your expectation, recall the principle of correspondence – as above, so below; as below, so above. As it is with the seed, so it is with the tree. Start with the small if you want to affect the large. If you wish to bring about a change in a friend, in a parent, child, or spouse, change your own expectation. Begin to expect that which you desire to happen and you will note changes occurring.

Expect things on a smaller scale at first, as the smaller things come into being you begin to expect the major things to happen as well. Expectation is a force that can and should be discussed with others.

AmericanMonk
Expectation works with all people, and on all levels-on the family level, on the town, city, and country level, on the national, international, and universal level. The law is the law; what works with the small works with the mighty. What works with the molecule works with the universe.

Change your expectation and see your reality, your world, change to the degree that you wish it to change. And eventually you will arrive at the place you wish to be.

We have all been thoroughly indoctrinated with so much negative propaganda about our lives that it is a wonder we can remember how to be happy at all. At every turn we are reminded that life is a struggle, that work is difficult, that solving our problems will take tremendous effort, and that earning money is hard, hard work.

Our culture’s extreme focus on individualism, competition, and consumerism has stripped from us the ability to truly relax and enjoy the process of life, and bask in the effortlessness of our evolution. The effort we are asked to express in this lifestyle drains our spiritual, creative energy.

We need only look beyond our societal expectations to see how deluded we are. The natural world is dynamic, active, constantly growing and evolving, yet it is driven without any effort. Everything that is truly important in the world is done without the kind of striving effort that our conscious minds are so used to. The forests of the earth grow effortlessly, the seasons change effortlessly, the cells of your body have grown from a microscopic fetus to a fully intelligent being effortlessly.

Your body is, in this very instant, performing tens of thousands of highly specific actions in order to keep you alive without any input from your conscious mind.

What you must learn is that your conscious mind is not meant to be used to worry about any of the functions of living. There is a deep intelligence at work in the universe, and you must develop the faith that this intelligence will meet your needs just as it meets the needs of every cell in your body, and every animal on the planet.

Your conscious mind should not be used to worry about a million things that might go wrong. Your conscious mind should be used only to direct the focus of your life and to enjoy the fruits of your actions.

Consciously decide in which direction you want to evolve, and then let the infinite energy of your inner self take over. Realize that you can attract money without any effort on your part, and realize that it is okay to do so.

Obviously you will need to use your energy in the physical world, but when you are doing what you want you will not be filled with stress but with joy and enthusiasm. Hard work is for those who have not bothered to learn how their minds work. For you, life is truly effortless, and truly enjoyable.

Success Is All Luck http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/success-is-all-luck/ Fri, 03 Aug 2012 01:31:42 +0000 http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/?p=1456 Continue reading ]]>

By Craig Ballantyne, Creator of Early To Rise

Luck has been in my corner since day one back in 1975.

I was extraordinarily lucky to be born in Canada into a lower-middle class family. When I was a child I was lucky enough to have an alcoholic, underachieving, embarrassing father who gave me the first chip on my shoulder, one that compelled me to work harder, achieve more, and go further so that I could escape his shadow.

I was also lucky that my mother had dropped out of high school and spent the rest of her life working for barely more than the minimum wage, never earning more than $28,000 in a year (an amount that I’ve made in a single day in my business on several occasions). I was lucky, because of her mistakes, that she would never let me make the same ones.

And boy was I lucky to have went to grade school with patches on my knees, for this caused me great embarrassment and instilled in me the drive to do better, to excel in school, to get into the best program in college, to make the Dean’s Honour List three years in a row, to get accepted into a Master’s program, to study until 10pm on weekends so I could earn a scholarship to help me pay for 6 years of post-secondary education- and so that I’d never feel embarrassed like that again.

It’s as though I’ve had a horseshoe made out of rabbit’s feet around my neck for these past thirty years.

I’ve also been lucky to make friends with entrepreneurs like Bedros Keuilian, a real-life American Dream. Bedros was lucky to have been born in Armenia (then part of the Soviet Union) and to have a father that gambled his family’s safety by bribing their way out of the USSR so they could arrive virtually penniless in America (legally).
Bedros was also lucky enough to arrive in America in 1980 without being able to speak a lick of English. He was fortunate that his family was so poor that he had to dumpster-dive behind grocery stores for food.

Without this luck, Bedros wouldn’t have the burning desire that has allowed him to succeed and create a better life, so that as he often tells me, “My kids will never have to spend an hour of their lives in daycare.”

And I’m lucky enough to be friends with Matt Smith, another lucky young man from my generation who, like me, grew up with little more than an embarrassment of a father and a mother that spent the little money she had to take care of her children.

Among Matt’s lucky childhood experiences was the night when his mother scraped together a few dollars for a special Friday dinner of take-out pizza. That night, the Smiths were lucky to have mistakenly left the pizza on top of the car as they drove away. Eventually, the pizza fell off the car’s roof into the middle of a busy intersection – where car after car drove over it – and this was a lucky break for Matt.

Why?

Because the Smiths’ had no money to go and buy a replacement pizza. And so Matt will forever remember that night – and that feeling – as something he will never want to experience again. It’s just another lucky motivator in his drive to do better and succeed so that his children won’t have to experience that great fortune.

That kind of luck leaves a burning desire that NOTHING – not even a life of iPhones, TV’s in every room of the house, unending after-school activities, or 24/7 Internet and cable TV access – could ever top.

My luck continues. I’m fortunate to know Isabel De Los Rios, one of the world’s most successful nutrition experts, who herself was lucky enough to spend almost a decade as a sick, unhealthy, overweight, and unhappy young woman, so that she could truly understand the troubles that her hundreds of thousands of female clients go through.

Isabel was also lucky enough to be downright broke when she applied to my Mastermind Group in 2008, having to borrow the money from her fiancé. It was due to her great fortune to be in these situations that she committed to working harder than almost any other person I’ve ever coached. This has allowed her to pull herself up from financial stress and into a business where today she has over 200,000 customers that have been lucky enough to get Isabel’s help as they change their lives.

Finally, we’ve all been lucky enough to learn from Michael Masterson, our mentor that was lucky enough to grow up in a poor household of ten children. He was lucky enough to have so little that it drove him to become the entrepreneur and mentor that we all came to know through Early to Rise.

This is the luckiest group of individuals you might ever meet. We were lucky to have had the experiences we did because they taught us so much and drove us to great action. Without our setbacks, what would we have achieved? We have been part of the luckiest generations to have ever lived.

What about your luck? Have you lucked out and been fortunate to have gone through similar struggles? Have you been given the inspiration to work harder than ever, to explore new opportunities to take control of your future, and that drive you towards financial independence?

Are you one of the fortunate ones that were not born with a silver spoon so that you could learn the importance of adding value to the world in exchange for a fair return? Have you been lucky enough to fail again and again?

Never forget that failure isn’t bad. Failure isn’t final. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from achieving the success you deserve. If you’re struggling, keep hustling. Keep taking at least one big action step each day.

Failure is good luck.

I can only hope you’ve been as lucky as I have over the years. And the old saying is true, you know, “The harder I work, the luckier I get”. So take that luck that you get and press it. Keep on pushing. It only gets easier from here.

The Greatest Obstacle to Happiness http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/the-greatest-obstacle-to-happiness/ Mon, 02 Jul 2012 18:02:41 +0000 http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/?p=1424 Continue reading ]]>

By Dr. Robert Anthony, Creator of The Secret of Deliberate Creation

Think of your present moment as your Point of Power, because it is the only point where you can exercise your full power. For most of us the present moment exists only as mental concept. If there is such a place where all the creative forces of the universe come together, how do we know it is the present moment? What evidence is there that this is true?

Consider this; all your hopes for the future and even your memories of the past can happen only in the present moment. The present moment is that one point where everything comes together.

We have been taught that those moments are separate from each other, but in truth, they all take place in the now. No matter what happens in life, it is always now, then now, then now – always in the present moment.

Nothing exist outside of the NOW. Nothing ever happened in the past. – It happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future – It will happen in the Now. When you think of the past it is stored in the mind as a former now. And, when you think about the past, when do you do it? – You do it now! When the futures comes – it comes in the now. And, when you think about the future, when do you do it? – You do it now!

The past and the future have no realities of their own. Their realities are “borrowed” from the now.

All unhappiness is caused by denial of the present. We think problems are caused by our situations in life, but attachment to the past and future and denial of the now is the real problem. Ultimately then, there is only one problem in life – not living in the now.

You cannot be unhappy and fully present now. It is impossible to have a problem when your attention is in the now. When you live in the now, a situation is either dealt with or accepted now. A problem means you are dwelling on a situation mentally without having a true intention or possibility of taking action now.

How to Supercharge Your Magnetic Power to Automatically Attract Whatever You Want http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/how-to-supercharge-your-magnetic-power-to-automatically-attract-whatever-you-want-2/ http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/how-to-supercharge-your-magnetic-power-to-automatically-attract-whatever-you-want-2/#comments Thu, 24 May 2012 15:39:42 +0000 http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/?p=1368 Continue reading ]]>

All of the psychological principles in these lessons lead to the truth that properly utilizing your creative energy will magnetically draw to you the experiences you desire.

The power of personal magnetism cannot be understated, for it will draw to you all of the outer, physical experiences necessary for you to fulfill your desires.

By following through with these exercises, by committing to change, by clearly defining your goals, by believing in your power to change, and by focusing your mind in the direction of your goals, you automatically set up a magnetic field of energy that will draw to you the people you need to meet, the circumstances that will help you on your way, and the money you need to fulfill your goals.

This magnetism is a simple and natural extension of the same creative energy which has built your life for you so far. As I stated earlier, unless you consciously decide upon the direction of your life, you will unconsciously repeat patterns that were programmed into your mind many years ago. In this way, you allow the magnetic energy of your spirit to draw familiar experiences to you even if those experiences are limiting and unsatisfactory.

These unconscious patterns explain why most people tend to repeat the same mistakes in their relationships and careers. The only way to override these patterns is to consciously decide to. Through the proper utilization of your conscious beliefs you can begin to magnetically attract optimistic, positive people and events into your life, rather than limiting, negative ones.

In the next few lessons you will learn specific, practical techniques to kick the magnetism of your creative spirit into high gear. For today, simply be aware of this quality in your life.

Realize that everything you have ever experienced has been drawn to you by your conscious beliefs, and decide today to consciously attract more constructive experiences on a more consistent basis.

TAKE ACTION: Sit quietly and visualize the energy of your spirit as a visible magnetic force that emanates outward from your body in all directions and flows over the entire planet, touching every person alive. Now visualize that this magnetic field of energy responds unfailingly to your conscious thoughts, and automatically brings into your life precisely what you desire.

“Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.” –Napoleon Hill

The Greatest Secret of Modern Science http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/the-greatest-secret-of-modern-science/ http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/the-greatest-secret-of-modern-science/#comments Mon, 27 Feb 2012 17:46:45 +0000 http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/?p=1228 Continue reading ]]>

There is one all-important truth that you must accept if you wish to develop on the path to prosperity. You must discard the modern scientific idea that the physical universe is a meaningless, uncaring, random machine, and that human consciousness is a chemical accident within this machine.

In fact precisely the opposite is true. The universe is a living, conscious, intelligent energy which manifests all physical realities. Thought, emotion, consciousness, and life are the true substance of our universe. Whereas we have been led to believe that consciousness is a delusion of our neurology, the real delusion is that a universe of such magnificence could be accidentally formed. There are countless scientific findings from the past century that point to this truth, but one vital understanding is all that we have room for in this short training program.

The most startling finding of modern science is that there is no material substance in the universe. Protons, electrons, quarks, and all of the “fundamental” particles that science has discovered all turn out to be various manifestations of energy and information.

Everything in the universe is a product of this ever-moving, ever-changing energy. All that we experience physically is simply an interpretation of that energy using our physical senses. So in the most practical, physical sense, everything that you experience is the result of your mind’s interpretation of the energy of the universe.

This insight is the first step to true freedom and personal power. If you believe the universe is a random, meaningless, violent place then in your experience it will be so. If, on the other hand, you believe that your mind controls the substance of your experience, and that the universe is primed to fulfill your needs, then you will meet with experiences that confirm this truth.

Your exercise today is to feel the energy of the universe. Feel it at work within your body; breathing for you, beating your heart, fighting diseases and repairing your cells. This energy flows out from your body to literally shape your world in the same way that it shapes your body.

“You have to settle into the uncertainty of things and be comfortable with it. Never voice negativity even if things are not going well. Your world is changing, there’s always tomorrow, all will work out fine in the end… Powerful consciousness about life and money is only habit. Agree to change your habits if that’s what it takes.” –Stuart Wilde
