How do you measure success? It seems to mean different things to different people depending on our beliefs and experiences. Many measure success in terms of money. I would define success as the ability to fulfill your needs and desires, and that could certainly include money.
Here I would like to borrow a quote from Dr. Eric Kaplan, —“You don’t reach greater heights by making more money –you make more money by reaching greater heights through personal growth.”
A couple of weeks ago I told you about a show I saw on Oprah’s new network OWN where Jane Fonda talked about her life. Jane Fonda has obviously had it all, a great movie career, a successful business, she was a very outspoken activist, and she was married to a multi-billionaire, Ted Turner. Yet, she knew there was something missing. She said she got a divorce and moved into the small guest room at her daughter’s house and did the most important work of her life. She found wholeness within herself, and she said she has never been happier.
We are all whole, complete and perfect, but few of us are aware of it. We keep looking outside ourselves to find ways to prove ourselves to the world while we are still unaware of all the wholeness, power and abilities that lie deep within each of us.
True success can only come from within, and by shifting our focus from an outer direction to an inner direction we discover that we are at one with everything, and that there is a process for manifesting anything we want in our lives.
The thing that blocks our awareness of who we are is all the stress caused by the striving for all the external stuff, when we actually have it all right within ourselves.
Many years ago I discovered a process for releasing stress and strengthening the entire mind/body system which moves one into a much more advanced level of functioning. This is what Abraham Maslow calls self-actualization. It is when we discover that we have the ability to fulfill all of our needs and desires right within ourselves.
Through this process we refine the energy of the mind/body system thereby merging our conscious mind with universal intelligence which allows us to see and understand laws of nature that govern how we are actually creating our own experiences. We then begin to intuitively know how to live in harmony with these principles to create whatever we chose.
I created a course to help my friends and associates discover their own wholeness, which we now call our Core Course. Thousands of people have participated in this course with amazing results. It is now on DVD so you can experience it right in the comfort of your own home. You can get a free introductory session of this course by simply clicking in the box on the side of any page on our web site requesting it.
I have also written a book entitled Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want, which explains this process in detail. In addition I have also created a Companion Workbook, a DVD demonstration of the energizers and breathing exercises and a CD with a number of relaxation/visualizations to help you get started working with this process.
Once you start working with the process and discover what it does for you, we also provide in residence courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
