Foundations for success..
Be impeccable with your words/thoughts or deeds - so not to create pain, not just outwardly to others but internally and to yourself. What you give out you get back, what you think, your words and actions display.
Be honest and truthful. Things will come easy and flow.
Release the desire of having something for nothing. There's enough for us all, there's no need to steal so let go of any beliefs of lack and let go of competition. This will open you up to all things.
Use wisely not just your physical energy but moral, intellectual and your spiritual energy practicing self restraint / balancing of actions, thoughts and feelings and channelling them first toward the quest of higher realisation.
No need to be greedy or hoard, create space. Be careful about the gifts we accept which may bind us in obligation to owe something back. Be detached from cause and affect relationships.
Disciplines for success..
Purity of body, inside and out is essential for wellbeing. Treat your body well, eat foods that promote health, view everything and every being a friend on your side.
Be content in how things are, not looking at a condition for happiness and understanding that happiness is something we create in ourselves. By being content we can rest knowing everything works out for us and all is coming. We release the holding off / barriers to not being where we want / having what we want.
- To blaze, burn, shine, suffer pain or consume by heat. Have a burning effort under all circumstances to achieve a definite goal. It involves purification, self discipline and austerity. Developing a mental attitude whereby you remain tranquil and balanced in joy and sorrow and retain self control. Develop strength in body, mind and character gaining courage and wisdom, integrity, straightforwardness and simplicity.
Keep educating yourself, drawing out the best that is within. Keep on studying the self. Grow through self awareness and continue developing with persistence.
Let go of the ego. Have faith surrendering the mind, intellect and will to a higher power, release worry as there's nothing to possess.
What do you want most? Why do you get up in the morning? Where are you going? Who and how can you serve? What do you have to offer? What kind of person do you strive to be? What skills would you like to master? How much do you want to earn? What knowledge would you like to acquire? What places would you like to visit?
Rather than drifting through life aimlessly you can create the life you desire by figuring out what you truly want and making a decision to go after it.
Having a major desire / definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. It is what frames your path to success, it provides direction for your life. Once defined, all of your other activities fall into place, you'll not settle for anything less than what you truly want. It becomes the why of your life, the reason for your existence. You'll never arrive at your purpose; you'll live it.
"if the thing you wish to do is right, and you believe in it, go ahead and do it! put your dream across and never mind what 'they' say if you meet with temporary defeat, for 'they' perhaps, do not know that every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success."
Define your purpose - write a clear, concise statement that declares your mission in life and place it where you will see it at least once a day. The subconscious mind is like a magnet, and when it has been infused with a definite purpose it has a decided tendency to attract all that is necessary for the fulfillment of that purpose. Like attracts like. Follow your statement with definite plans and backing those plans with persistence - which does not recognise failure. Be congruent with your words and actions, get on top of your thoughts and believe, or do the work to allow you to believe that any thing is possible.
