Animals have no doubts because they have no minds (ego). A cat does what a cat is supposed to do without any judgments or considerations. It chases a mouse and if unsuccessful it pursues another option to feed itself. Have you ever seen a cat, or any other animal for that matter, to put its paw on its head saying "you're such a bad cat because you couldn't even catch a mouse?"
There is a significant distinction between Action and Activity. Most people are obsessed with activity and have no clue about what constitutes action. They run around setting things off in motion but never get around finishing anything. They are busy but not very productive. They give themselves a false sense of security which has only the appearance of abundance but it’s nothing short of total scarcity.
The crisis we’re about to encounter can provide the astute and educated investor with a great chance to become financially independent. We all know that we can make money in a good market, but history shows we can get very rich in a bad one. Now more than ever, I’m dedicated to bring more applicable knowledge of what it takes to succeed in the coming bad years. What we need now is the necessary knowledge to acquire real estate creatively through lease options, “subject to”, short sales, discounted notes and much more. So, get ready for a great opportunity to own real estate with little or no money.
As Emerson once said, the ancestor to every action is a thought. We have also heard, as we think so we shall become. Or you become what you think about all day long. All these expressions and countless many others indicate that the first element needed for success is right thinking.
If thoughts are the precursor to actions, it is our words that act as the bridge between them. How we speak to ourselves and to others is of critical importance. It is essential to have harmony between our thoughts, words and actions. If you think one thing, speak contradictory to those thoughts, and do something different, you will never succeed or be happy. You may fool others (or yourself) in the short term but in the long term your life will never be truly fulfilling. Even if you do all right financially, you'll be a mental, emotional and spiritual wreck!
As Emerson once said, “the ancestor to every action is a thought”. You first have an idea; then you have a thought; then you have action. It’s important to see the distinctions among them, for if you try to put them together you will lose clarity. At first it may appear that they are all happening at the same time, but this is not the case. If your awareness is high, you will see where one starts and the other takes over.
Where is your energy going? Every day, many people find themselves without adequate energy to carry on with their objectives. Some resort to drugs, alcohol, vitamins, etc. in the hope to reenergize themselves and achieve at peak levels.
Clearly, good natural supplements are helpful, but they won’t create miracles. The truth is that we can only succeed in life when we are creating. Creativity is our inherent state. It has been bestowed upon us by the Prime Creator, Life Force, Nature, God, whatever you prefer to call it.
