When you’re struggling to put food on the table and make ends meet, you won’t be looking to become successful or making it big.
You’ll rather be worried about how you are going to get past your current famine.
And that’s a huge problem, my friend.
Because this famine will come and pass in a few weeks or months but another one will return stronger.
When that comes, if you aren’t prepared to handle it, you might as well perish.
This is why success is crucial. Success is not just about achieving the goal that you want to accomplish. It’s about keeping it.
You wouldn’t call someone who lost 20 Kg and gained back 25 Kg as successful.
In other words, success is NOT about your survival. It’s about sustainability and abundance.
If you are successful, it means that you have more than enough to fulfil all your needs and wants.
And for as long as you are in survival mode, you will continue to struggle.
It’s important to break out of this survival chain and work on things that contribute to sustainable success.
And guess what? Your hard work, experience and passion has zero role to play in it.
A farmer who grows rice in his farm may be very effective at it. He might use the best systems to ensure that maximum rice is produced as efficiently as possible.
He may even choose to take his produce outside of his town to sell it at a higher price. And he may make a lot of money when the crops are flourishing abundantly.
But when famine comes or the seasonal conditions cause havoc with the crops, he’ll again slip into survival mode.
He’ll begin to worry about how he is going to put food on the table, starve himself a few times each day and so on.
Even though this farmer was passionate about his crops, tilled his soil hard, he did not do the things necessary to ensure sustainable success.
And that led to his downfall.
There are many people like this… At one point of time, they’re neck deep in debt and work really hard to pay it off.
The bills are paid and they feel free and within a few weeks, they’re busy buying another loan putting themselves in further debt.
If you’re one of those people who constantly lives in survival mode, pay close attention to these 4 laws here…
Every action creates an opposite and equal reaction:
Most clients come to me, when they have an ugly life situation that they aren’t happy with in the present moment.
As soon as they begin, they forget what needs to be done and try to make changes in the present. They become frustrated about all the things that are wrong in the present situation.
The more they crib and try to work on their present situation, the worse it gets.
Your present situation is a by-product of your past thoughts and actions. The more you try fixing the present, the farther away you’re moving from your goal.
The key is to redirect our energies and begin working on things that we do want, instead of the things that we don’t want.
Success Is Always A Group Effort:
I always tell this to my clients, “No man or woman is an island”.
If you are serious about becoming really successful, you better forget about doing it all on your own. You need the help of other people to succeed.
We need our immediate circle of people (whether personal or career-wise) to help and guide us to achieve our goals.
Collective effort always trumps individual effort. The key is to find your group and work collectively towards a common set of goals and objectives.
Anger Is An Expression Of Helplessness:
People never become angry as a result of outside events or the actions of other people. Rather, it’s when they’re frustrated with their own inability to change themselves and their emotional state.
If you have such kind of frustration built in your life, make sure that you release it or it will further derail your progress.
Instead look at channelizing the anger in a productive way. Channelize your anger towards creating a burning desire for your goals.
Make your anger push you towards your goals instead of blasting out and expressing it.
Give more and you’ll receive:
If you feel that success has been eluding you even though you’ve put forth your best, then it’s time to look at how much you’ve been sharing and giving to others.
Sharing happiness, positivity and practicing charity creates more happiness and positivity in your life. Similarly, sharing misery and negativity creates more of the same.
So make note of what you speak… because you’re creating the same in your external world. Make sure that you give as much as possible – whether it’s knowledge, money or positivity.
The more you give, the sooner it comes back to you. The quicker you can empty the air out of this room, the quicker it will be filled up by the external air.
And if you close all the doors and every aperture, that which is within will remain, but that which is outside will never come in, and that which is within will stagnate, degenerate and become poisoned – Swami Vivekananda
