How to Experience Inspiration and True Success!


7 Principles

I know a young man who really didn’t like school, and although he was one of the most intelligent young men I knew, he underachieved. Not only did he not like school he also didn’t seem motivated to work at menial jobs

When he got to college he eventually dropped out. His parents and teachers were concerned about his apparent laziness and lack of motivation, but the reality was that nothing they were presenting to him aligned with who he was created to be.

A few years later I observed him connect with his purpose and passion. I saw the lights go on as he aligned with what truly inspired him. I saw him work harder than other young men his age as he built a business around his innate abilities and interests. Because he was inspired, it was not work to him, it was play – it was his purpose and passion!

I observed as he spent almost every spare moment engaged in “self-education.” He thirsted for the knowledge that pertained to his new venture. He was inspired and he was taking inspired action in a massive way.

The key here is that he began taking action that he felt inspired to take, not just doing what others told him he “should” do.

“When we’re inspired we’re connected to this force that’s greater in every respect that our physical being. It was in-spirit that our purpose was laid out and its in-spirit where our magnificence is absolute and irrefutable. Before merging into form, we were a part of God, with all the inherent qualities of a Creator who sends forth abundance, creativity, love, peace, joy and well-being.” (Dyer, Inspiration, 7)

1. Your thoughts and emotions are more powerful than your actions

When you align with Divine Purpose you are led to the right actions. Inspiration is the result of your connection to Divine Purpose.

Once you understand the importance of a clear, un-corroded connection to your Source, you are going to begin experiencing inspired thoughts and feelings. When you are inspired you’ve established resonance with divine energy. Knowing that thoughts are things made up of vibrational energy, we can now see that inspired thoughts are especially powerful things, because they flow from our Source and put us on a path of divine intention.

Inspiration is Divine Purpose revealing itself to you. The word inspiration comes from two words, “In” and “spirit.” Living an inspired life is living in harmony, or, in oneness, with the divine source from which you originated. We could call it “spiritual mindedness.” As you seek to live an inspired life you begin to see yourself aligning with your Divine Purpose.

Napoleon Hill said: “An intangible impulse of thought can be transmuted into its physical counterpart by the application of known principles.” (Hill, Think and Grown Rich, 11)

Anyone who has done work of a creative nature knows the feeling of being inspired. It is an incredible experience when ideas just seem to flow. It’s like a faucet has suddenly been turned on. Inspired thoughts and ideas begin streaming into your mind as they did for George Frederick Handle when he composed the Messiah. Sometimes the ideas flow so quickly it is difficult to even write them down, but you know you have to take action.

2, Don’t try harder!

As children, most of us were taught: “Apply yourself; just try harder,” but if we need to try harder at something it means we are experiencing dissonance. This is why “principle one” comes first – you must follow the path that resonates for you. Trying harder sends a message to subconscious mind that you are lacking.

Trying harder interrupts the power of visualization. Once you have seen the thing you desire and experienced it with powerful emotion, it is no just longer something you will have in the future, but something you know is already yours.

Once you have the clear picture, your subconscious receives the plan and inspired action naturally follows. You innately know when the signal of your divine purpose is resonating with your Divine source. (This is why Principles 3 and 4 come before 5 and 6).

Remember, the “inner victory” always comes first! The harder you try, the less inspiration will flow and the less you’ll be aligned with your Divine Purpose!

If your actions are not inspired don’t take them! The harder you have to try, the less you will experience True Success!

3. Take Inspired Action

“Inspired action” is the universe’s way of alerting you to an opportunity to create an outcome that is meant for you. When you consistently focus on certain outcomes that are aligned with your purpose, like having more abundance, having your dream career, having a successful business and so on, you start drawing forth all of the resources, people, and opportunities that can help you make those outcomes a physical reality. And many of those resources show up in the form of inspired ideas, or inspired “actions” that you can take.

Many personal development programs solely on taking massive action, and of course without action there can be no results. We cannot reap, unless we sow, but if we’re frantically sowing the wrong seeds we will not reap the desired harvest. True Success happens when we take actions that are inspired by our Divine Purpose.

When our thoughts and feelings are vibrating in a low, uncomfortable, negative place, we are not open to receive inspired ideas. We are only open to receive problems, challenges, and negativity.

By working consistently on raising our frequency we become aligned with wonderful outcomes! And when we align with wonderful outcomes, we receive inspired ideas that help make those outcomes our reality.

When we are inspired by our Divine Purpose all of our thoughts break their bonds, our mind transcends limitations, our consciousness expands in every direction and we find ourselves in a new world. Dormant forces come alive and we find ourselves being far greater than we’ve ever dreamed.

When we’re inspired we’re in a state of absolute faith – an inner knowing that it’s impossible to fail, a complete absence of doubt. We’re incapable of thinking limited thoughts. We go beyond the world of boundaries to a place of creative knowing. We are under the guidance of Divine Purpose.

How to Choose Emotions that Align with your Divine Purpose! (Part 1 Passion)


passion

Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which ones to surf!” – Unknown

Choose passion

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who are alive.” – Howard Thurman

Passion is a high-frequency emotion that resonates powerfully with Divine Purpose. Everyone has passions that are unique to them.

Because some people are born with such incredible talent, they are aware of their passions from a very young age; Michelangelo, for instance, knew as a very young boy that he had a passion for sculpting. There are some people who know they were meant to sing and their passion drives them to be on stage sharing their talent with others, but what about people who don’t have a talent that allows them to get up on stage and perform?

Your passion is not your Divine Purpose but it definitely provides clues. Passion is about the process and Divine Purpose is about the journey.

There is a great price to be paid for not living your passion!

Whenever you are faced with a choice, a decision or an opportunity, choose in favor of your passion.” – Janet and Chris Atwood

“Our Divine Purpose is the intersection of our passion and the world’s greatest need. One way to determine your passion, though, is discovering what you believe to be the world’s greatest need. The passion flows from that.”

Many people have a hard time identifying their passions. I think these are a few of the reasons why:

  • Our insecurities define us more than our hidden, suppressed dreams.
  • We are afraid to boast.
  • We see the vastness of the world and feel insignificant or overwhelmed to make a difference.
  • We feel it’s selfish to become introspective.
  • We’re extremely busy maintaining an overbooked life and don’t have time to reconsider why we’re working ourselves to death.
  • We think it’s wrong to do what we love.
  • We feel the sting of rejection the last time we tried operating in our passion, and we’ve let that rejection scare us.
  • We are afraid if we identify it, we’ll have to do something, to act on it (and that means risking failure).

When you are living in the high-frequency of your passions you will align with who you were created to be.

Choose to do something everyday that you are passionate about! The price of not doing it is way too high!

I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments!

How to Ignite the Law of Attraction with Gratitude!


law of attraction - jack canfield

Jack Canfild teaches that if you want to live the Law of Attraction, appreciation should be incorporated into your daily living.

Appreciation is the oxygen that breathes life into the three-step Law of Attraction process. It turns the spark of your desire into a full-blown flame that effortlessly attracts the things you want like moths to a candle.

Three Steps to Attract What You Want

The first step of the Law of Attraction is quick and easy: Ask.  As soon as you become aware of a desire, announce it to the universe. State your intention out loud, write it down, post a picture of what you want on a vision board, or simply think, “I want that!”

The next step is Believe. Believe that you can have the thing you want, and then release your desire to the universe. Trust that you’ll receive what you want or something better. Either way, the decision is in the universe’s hands. Detachment from the outcome occurs when you have total faith that the universe will give you exactly what is perfect for you right here, right now.

Affirmations are used to remove doubt about whether you’ll get or you deserve what you want. An affirmation describes your goal as already complete. It affirms what you want vs. what you don’t want. It also captures how you feel when celebrating your goal. This allows you to feel the actual feelings you’ll experience upon achieving your goal. For example, “I am feeling light and alive at my perfect body weight of one thirty-five.

Appreciation works its magic during the final step – Receive. Appreciation is one of the highest emotional states you can be in. It is the state of abundance. The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. If you are grateful for what you have already received, you will attract more for which you can be grateful.

Think for a moment about your own experience with holiday gift giving. When relatives show sincere pleasure and appreciation for the gifts you give, no matter how simple, you want to shower them with even more. Gift giving becomes a delight for you as much as for the recipients. Contrast this with people who don’t acknowledge your presents or who dismiss them as not big enough, impressive enough, or “right” enough. Giving gifts to these individuals becomes an obligation. You don’t spend hours searching for the perfect gift. You settle for an item that’s adequate.

The universe operates in a similar way. Its best gifts go to individuals who vibrate at the highest levels of appreciation for the gifts they’ve already received.

To create the vibrational match with what you want, live in the feeling space of already possessing the things you want. Appreciate what you already have, and you’ll be vibrating in the same state of gratitude you’ll be in when the universe delivers what you want.

Appreciate the Smallest Blessings

Activate your gratitude by acknowledging the gifts most people take for granted.

If you have food in your refrigerator (meaning that you have electricity), clothes in your closet and a roof over your head, you are better off than 75 percent of the world’s population. If you eat three meals a day, you are far better off than the 1 billion people on the planet who eat once a day at most. Celebrate these simple blessings.

Do you have a phone? Be grateful – millions don’t. How about a car that allows you to travel to work or to explore the country? Is your family healthy? Do you have a computer and Internet access to stay in touch with the world, get access to education, and perform work for which you are paid? Do you have clean water to drink? These daily conveniences are gifts that most people in the world do not enjoy.

Daily Appreciation Habits

Here are five easy ways to make appreciation part of your daily routine:

Take 7 minutes each morning to write down all you appreciate. Starting your day this way primes you to be receptive and grateful for everything your day will bring.

Carry a physical token of gratitude in your pocket, such as a stone, crystal or some other small item. As you reach into your pocket throughout the day and feel the token, use it as a reminder to stop, breathe and take a moment to fully experience the emotion of gratitude.

Appreciate at least 3 people every day. Most people enjoy receiving verbal appreciation. But written notes are also nice because they can be saved and re-read. (For ideas on expressing uncommon appreciation, click here.)

Play the Appreciation Game. As the saying goes, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” Look for the good in all situations. When my wife was in a car accident a few years ago, she could have chosen to berate herself or question her judgment. Instead, she focused on her gratitude for suffering only minor injuries and for the help she received from other drivers.

Appreciate yourself. We all need acknowledgement, but the most important acknowledgement is what we give ourselves. In addition to celebrating your big successes, acknowledge your small daily successes, too. During my annual Breakthrough to Success training, I assign the Mirror Exercise as homework because your subconscious mind needs positive encouragement to pursue further achievements and to change any negative beliefs you hold toward praise and accomplishment. This powerful exercise requires you to appreciate yourself for the day’s accomplishments while talking to yourself in a mirror. For more detailed instructions and guidance for the Mirror Exercise, see page 199-201 of The Success Principles.

Appreciation Is Not Human Nature

Many people find that it requires great diligence to cultivate an attitude of appreciation. We are culturally conditioned to focus on what we don’t have, rather than appreciating what we’ve already received.

Decades ago, the University of Chicago conducted a fascinating study into appreciation. Researchers took soldiers who had recently returned from the World War II Pacific Theater and housed them in Quonset huts on campus. At first, the men were delighted with their housing, because they were ecstatic to be off the battlefield. After about 30 days, however, they started to complain about their Quonset huts. Rather than being grateful for a simple, yet safe, place to live, they began to focus on what they didn’t have. They became dissatisfied with not having more comfortable quarters.

It may not feel natural at first to focus on appreciating what you already have. But by faithfully using the appreciation exercises outlined in this article, you’ll change your conditioning. Giving thanks will become more than an occasional exercise. It will become a daily discipline that allows you to vibrate in more of what you want from life.

How to Change Limiting Beliefs


anxiety

Do you currently have a glass ceiling over your level of success? If so, there are obstacles deep inside you that are holding you back. These obstacles are limiting beliefs. These beliefs are acting as opposing intentions that block your dreams from manifesting.

First, let’s get clear about what limiting beliefs really are. A limiting belief is a self-created “truth” that prevents you from following your dreams and manifesting your deepest desires. In other words, it’s an obstacle that stands between you and your Divine Purpose.

The important thing to remember is that limiting beliefs are “self-created”? They are! The seeds for some of your limiting beliefs might have been planted in your mind by other people, but you ultimately nurtured them and allowed them to blossom in your life, even if you did it subconsciously.

Whether they originated from your own negative thoughts, or from someone else’s influence, they amount to the same thing: they are inner obstacles that will hold you back from the life you are intended for.

Remember how the Law of Attraction works!  You think, you feel, you attract.

A belief is nothing more than a thought you have focused on and reinforced dozens and dozens of times – so it eventually becomes your “truth”. Your beliefs influence your thoughts; your thoughts trigger your emotions, and your emotions broadcast your vibrational frequency!

Here are some tips that might help:

1. Awareness – identify limiting beliefs

Before you can change your limiting beliefs, you need to know what they are. But the trouble with most limiting beliefs is that they are subconscious. You rarely, if ever, think about them consciously, but they run silently in the background, influencing your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Here is an exercise that will help you identify some of your limiting beliefs. On a piece of paper, write the words: “I would like to _____________ (write in the thing that you most desire).  At the end of that statement, write the word, “but.” Then insert the reasons why it can’t be done.

Here is an example. “I would like to write a book, but I’m not famous enough for people to want to buy it.

Continue to write out a list of all the things that come to mind.

  • No one would want to read anything I wrote.
  • It would be way too hard!
  • I’m not knowledgeable enough to do that
  • I’m not an expert.
  • I don’t know where to start.

2. Meditation

The best way to change limiting beliefs is to use meditation. In a meditative state your subconscious mind is open to suggestions and affirmations. With repetition meditation can assist you in re-writing your subconscious blueprint.

Remember that a belief is nothing more than a self-created “truth” – a thought that you have continued to focus on and reinforce, sometimes for years.

But it won’t take years to clear your limiting beliefs. If you’re very consistent with your efforts, you can change a limiting belief in days – maybe a few weeks for extremely strong beliefs.

3. Reframing

Ronald Reagan was a master re-framer. Once, when he was accused by his opponent of being too old to run for president, he reframed their accusation by saying: “Oh, that’s just their youth and inexperience talking. We won’t hold it against them.” He had a natural ability to turn things around and put a new positive energy to them.

Have you ever noticed how different the world looks from the window of an airplane at 23,000 feet? The vantage point from which we see things has a great effect on what we believe, think and feel about things. If we are only seeing things from a vantage point of looking up at our huge pile of problems, we are seeing limited options, and we are going to feel discouraged. Remember, the language the Universe understands is the language of emotion. Emotions are the vibrational signal we send and that is what gets mirrored back into our lives. What if we could see our situation from 23,000 feet instead of from deep inside our pile of problems?

Words like: “What if______?” and “How can I______?” are used to form reframing question.  They open the Reticular Activating System in our brains to new possibilities.
