TO BE A RICH PERSON, SIMPLY STOP DOING WHAT POOR PEOPLE DO
I don’t mean to sound maudlin or too “new-agey” here; but the one bit of magic that I have managed to glean from my three quarters of century on this wobbly little planet of ours is that WE as individuals are absolutely in-charge of everything that the universe has to give. We are not only in charge of our own destinies, but also in charge of the very clockwork that is the Universe itself. Although most of us live our lives wholly oblivious to that fact, we none-the-less are in absolute control of our health, our fates, our bank accounts, our aspirations and even the aspirations of others (…i.e., the collective needs of the world at large).
Think about it. Didn’t we (you and I together) send a man to the Moon and stand with him behind the cameras in awe as he took what presumably was humanity’s first step on another planetary body?
Didn’t we send spaceships and video cameras to all the known planets? Didn’t we invent cures for Diphtheria, Polio and Malaria? Didn’t we build the Hubble Telescope and put it into orbit around a beautiful, blue inhabited water planet in a remote part of a remote galaxy among billions of other galaxies like it…’for no reason other than because we wanted to and felt that it necessary?
Didn’t we harness the very electricity that once was the scourge of humanity, but which now is enabling demi-godly evolution of the Information Age and our personal lives on a miniscule remote planet in the vastness of virtually endless space?
Of course we did! You and I did that! ‘And I couldn’t have done it without you!
There is no single individual anywhere on Earth who can take credit for any of our modernity…it is humanity that did it all, and it will be humanity who travels to the stars for our species’ exploration and relocation. It us YOU and I who will one day cure all the diseases of mankind including the aging process. And that’s exactly who YOU are, and what WE are capable of doing. Each of us is a crucial piece in an enormous magnificent jigsaw puzzle that never can be complete without every single tiny piece being in its specific place, supporting the entirety of the whole.
As individuals, we need only to be aware of, and in tune with, all of it, remaining steadfastly aware of all of it in order to use all of it and take credit for it. With each and every one of our achievements, somewhere along the line, a solitary individual with a burning desire to do a thing that alters the entire Universe forever—’with a little help from all the rest of us—’simply DID SO…’because he/she chose to do so, and because they knew for sure they could…refusing to acknowledge other people’s perception of the assumed insurmountable” obstacles and impossibility of a dream ever manifesting out of purest imperceptible Potential.
- “You’ll never get mail from Los Angeles to New York in a single day! There simply is no man or horse that can run that fast!
- You’ll never put a man on the Moon or Mars…’there’s nothing to breath when you get there!
- Traveling to another planet is impossible. There’s no atmosphere in space, and therefore nothing for a propellant to push against in order to create an “equal and opposing reaction”!
- There are no other universes! We have the Milky Way, and everything that exists is right here in it! Oh wait! What are all those little specks that lie beyond the Milky Way. Oh crap! ‘Back to the drawing board it is!
Here’s my own little success affirmation (‘as it were…’call it a mantra if you wish?), which, by the way, I have taped to the dashboard of my car, my bathroom mirror and on the back of my TV remote (‘with which I spend entirely too much time) and I’m in the process of having tattooed on the inside of each eyelid. If you want it, it’s yours too. I honestly have to say that it’s done alright by me. But here’s the caveat: If you read it over once or twice and think you understand its full meaning, you will be wrong…’like any expertly cut diamond, it’s far more multi-faceted than it might appear to be to the casual observer:
I am in tune with, and solely in charge of, the abundance
and the essence of, Life, which constitutes the purpose of
humanity’s existence. I will, therefore, prosper and stand
conspicuous in the most spectacular of ways… ALWAYS!
Dr. Tom Johnson, C.O.R.S.
The core message here is that whatever it is that we choose to have, ‘if we truly want it (need it or not), it will be given to us on a silver platter when we know with certainty that having it is our absolute right; and when we honestly ‘expect’ to have it. We can pray for it. We can hope for it. We can wish it upon ourselves. We can ask Santa for it. But if we’ve already tried all of that, and are weary of all the mewling and moping and hoping—and if we are sick and tired of screwing around and being ignored while waiting for the good stuff that others seem to have more of than we do: then we must dig in, rare back and scream (i.e., holler, bellow, bawl-out, yell).
This to say that we have no choice but to tilt our heads way back and proclaim, from the diaphragm through, to, and beyond the uvula,’ as loudly and sternly as we can, that what we want is already ours and by damn, we’re going to have it…NOW!
Its funny, I know, but sometimes God just doesn’t appear to hear real well when needs are whispered as prayerful little “poor-me” supplications. But when they are boldly demanded with sternest, self-assurance, he(she?) smiles and says: ”Well, sonovagun, ‘alrighty then! You finally figured it out! It’s about time!”
When you’ve asserted yourself in this manner (figuratively or literally)…and really mean it…my solemn promise to you is all that you honestly command into reality via Need versus Hope, will indeed appear… ‘and sooner than you think. ‘So be ready!
The most closely guarded secret relative to obtaining is not the fact that if you truly want it and have a good reason, that it will be given to you. There’s a far more valuable “tool” that we need to understand. Personally, I can remember my “poverty days (my own)” of not too many years ago, when I thought repeating my mantras and my affirmations daily (to myself)…with stern conviction…and paying larger tithes than I could afford, would bring me financial relief. It did not. It didn’t do diddly-squat (‘so to speak) in that regard…’ until I figured out the solution to the enigma.
The enigmatic mystery all along was simply that if you don’t think you deserve it, no matter how badly you want it, and no matter what you do to get it, you will never discover that it is already yours and just waiting for you to summon it from potential.
Whatever it may be, you must NEED it (burningly) enough to demand it with every screaming fiber of your body and sou and MEAN IT. And, until you do exactly that, your plans for achievement remain undefined and cannot allow the Law of the Universe to “know” what the hell it is that you think you’re supposed to have.
Consider walking up to an airport ticket counter and saying, “I’d like a ticket please.” The ticket agent then asks, “’And where would you like to go?” Whereupon you reply: “Well…someplace better than where I am right now, ‘that’s for sure.”
Think about it…how far are you going to get before your realize that you need to get a lot more specific. You “need” to refine your objective and know for sure exactly where you want to be. You also must know when you’ll be prepared to leave and when you’d like to arrive, and what your surroundings should be like once you get there. In other words , forget about where you WANT TO GO and determine instead where you NEED TO BE!
The resolution of the “enigma” then is: ‘Know with certainty what you want; brashly demand it without apology; know that it is already yours to have; expect it without embarrassment or doubt. Then, Voila! It’s on its way and you can’t stop it. Just be very careful what you pray for…because when you really mean it…you’re gonna get it!
But wait! There’s still another catch. There are a few things you must to do first in order to get aboard the Achievement Train. These items are not necessarily daily exercises, or life-changing goofy stuff that you can’t live with for long, and which embarrass your friends and family when they see you doing it. But they constitute the “catch” nonetheless, and are summed-up very succinctly in the following quote by Louise Hay:
In order to eliminate [any] ‘scarcity’ in one’s life, one must identify and relinquish some [veiled] self-serving need that relies upon that scarcity for its fulfillment
In analyzing this simple, life-altering truism, it becomes obvious that if, for example, one were to desire to, say, lose weight, he or she would have no choice but to give up something desirable but unnecessary. For the weight-challenged, take your choice: any two of the following will do (and you can keep all the rest)—’those scrumptious high calorie foods; ‘that insulin-spiking dietary starch; ‘that satisfying couple’a cold beers every evening after work (‘Oh God! Please! Not the beers!); ‘your sedentary lifestyle; or… ‘a blissful couple weeks of not exercising.
Another prime example of a deeply hidden self-serving need that relies upon a scarcity for its existence is “Failure.” In other words, many people actually choose to fail: I.e., “If I don’t attain success, my need to bitch about everything and blame others for my deficiencies won’t be impinged upon, ‘and I won’t ever have to face the prospect of…’well, ‘failing. In other words, if I don’t try, no one can say I failed; and that way, I won’t have to come back for an encore (…and that’s very important, because even if I did accidentally succeed once, who’s to say I could ever sustain the roll I was on, and be able to do it again).”
For the same reasons, if one wants to lose the depleted bank account, and the monthly late-notices (“friendly reminders”), then he or she has no choice but to firmly resolve to give up something. ‘For starters, how about giving up, say, a couple hours of TV watching per-evening, two or three of those leisurely Saturday afternoons per-month? How about giving up the safety inherent in declaring that you don’t like cold-calling? Or perhaps letting go of that that fattening poverty- building, ‘oh so soothing propensity for procrastination;
As Dr. Wayne Dyer says in his educational course by the same name: “YOU’LL SEE IT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT!”
For our purposes, the key is simply to understand, once and for all, that in order to become successful in Creative Real Estate, ‘especially as it pertains to the Equity Holding Transfer™, you don’t have to change your lifestyle, your religion, your spouse, your girth or the way you pluck your nose hairs. You merely need to identify and select a few of those replaceable Self-Serving Needs, ‘and resolve to abandon them in favor of diligently taking for yourself that which you REALLY want out of life.
Honestly, do you think your God will mind if you rare back, scream out boldly, emphatically and demand that “he” give you what you know with certainty that you truly deserve? No! ‘Any God who, in fact, would be offended by any starving soul raising his/her voice in dire need is really not a very good God.
Imagine, if you will, a devout and truly virtuous preacher in the process of drowning in lake with others watching? ‘Do you think his dire entreaty for salvation is going to be whispered softly in order to avoid offending God? Hell no! ‘You’ll hear him twenty miles away vociferously demanding the life that he knows with certainty he deserves, and of which he is about to be deprived! In this analogy the preacher knows without question what he want at that moment, ‘and he damn-well ain’t screwin around with platitudes and sweet-talk! In such a dire circumstance I am positive that any caring God would never resent even the busting of an F-Bomb or two somewhere along the line. If you’ve ever felt that you were about to drown and weren’t much of a swimmer, ‘you know exactly what I’m talking about.
If you’re about to drown financially…’now you know what to do about it!
