Imagine Yourself Successful

Imagine Yourself Successful.


Always picture yourself successful.

Visualize the person you desire to become.

Set aside time each day to be alone and undisturbed.

Get comfortable and relax.

Close your eyes and concentrate on your desires and goals.

See yourself in this new environment, capable and self-confident.



Reflect On Your Past Successes.


Every success, be it large or small, is proof that you are capable of achieving more success.

Celebrate each success.

You can recall it when you begin to lose faith in yourself.



Set Definite Goals.


Have a clear direction of where you want to go.

Be aware when you begin to deviate from these goals and take immediate action.


Respond Positively To Life.


Develop a positive self-image.

Your image, your reactions to life and your life and your decisions are completely within your control.



I was advised to read and read again this "bible" of mine and now I see why, it's as if new concepts are being introduced to me.

The statement: there is a difference between knowing something, and doing something comes to mind.

The above exercises was extracted directly from Napoleon Hill's Think And Grow Rich (Amazon.com)

Poetry That Is Rich

No, this poem was not written by me, but contains "truth."


I bargained with Life for a penny
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.

Steps To Realising Your Dreams

I come across this and thought I should share:

"Only 3% of the people commit Dreams & Goals to Paper.

A major university followed a group of graduates for 20 years who had done it.

This is what they learned: The participants had realised 97% of the things written down,"


So what are you waiting for again?

What Were We Born To Do

Below is a quotation not of my creation, but a powerful quotation at that.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

We ask ourselves: Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”.

I Must Have The Ability To Be "Money Conscious"

You know I realized after having posted Think And Grow Rich: Desire that I tend to, after I have finished reading a self development book, not use the practical steps detailed within the book, in this case Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, to better my life.

It completely defeats the purpose behind the purchase of the book, I might as well have taken the money and invested the money instead or something.

I was a bit angry at myself for being a walking contradiction.

Then after pulling myself together, realizing that progress is not being made by me beating myself up, I began looking out as to why was I being so "counter production."

'Why do I do that?'

'How can I change this?'

That's when I heard this guy on TV tell some teenager, who was doubting himself, that he mustn't fuss over the enormity of the task.

What he must look at is: What is the first thing that he must do?

After that is complete, he must look at the next step, and the next step after that. Up until the task/project is complete.

It's the first step, then I take another one, then another...one step at a time, one day at a time.

I mean by starting with the goal in mind and taking life as it comes one step at a time, surely I will overcome the chains of procrastination and achieve whatever desire I lay in front of me?

That's when I heard myself say: Any body can be giving directions to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but most never reach it because they either don't believe such a pot exists or the don't believe they are worthy of such wealth.

I don't (didn’t) believe in myself.

There is a psychology, I believe, when it comes to acquiring wealth.

A psychology, if cut up and analyzes vigorously, could open up the floodgates of wealth; allowing me to live the lifestyle I wish to live or, through not applying the inspired principles, keep me (mentally) poor.

I can go back and blame friends, church, family, colleagues or even people who I look up to for guidance and advice for telling me stuff life:

1. "Wanting is sinful, and that I should just be grateful for what I have,"
2. or "Money/the love of money is the root of all evil,"
3. or my all time favourite "...we can only dream neh?"

You know when you grew up, unconsciously, surrounding yourself with "limited thinkers,” and then being introduced to a world where unlimited abundance can be a way of life...well the thought is scary at first and I used to reject it as being too good to be true.

I (used to) fear the next level, it (used to) will therefore elude me.

Instead of looking at my past success I under rate myself making it almost impossible for me to succeed.

I guess that's where faith steps in the picture...

Think and Grow Rich: Desire

I'm going through Think and Grow Rich again and step 2, which gets mentioned again in step 4, is so vague to me that I thought maybe writing it out might help me "get" it.

With that said here is and extract from Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill - The revised and expanded by Arthur R. Pell version:

"The method by which desire for riches can be transmuted into financial equivalent consists of six definite, practical steps:

1. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient to merely say, 'I want plenty of money.' Be definite as to the amount. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness which will be described in a subsequent chapter).

2. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is no such reality as 'something for nothing.')

3. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

5. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire. Name the time limit for its acquisition. State what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.

6. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after rising in the morning. AS YOU READ, SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY."

Rich Dad...and Then Some!

"A person is limited only to his or her reality of what is possible financially.

Nothing changes until that person's reality changes.

And a person's financial reality will not change until he or she is willing to go beyond the fears and doubts of his or her own self-imposed limits."

Philippians 4:5-9

"Show a gentle attitude towards everyone. The Lord is coming soon.

Don't worry about anything. But in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking with a thankful heart.

And God's peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.

In conclusion, my brothers and sisters, fill your mind with those things that are good and that deserve praise; things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honorable.

Put into practice what you've learnt and received from me, both from my words and from my actions.

And the God who gives us will be with you."

A Message To A Grieving Heart

He said something about "the spirit having become so full it needs to express itself outside the limits of the body.

It thus leaves it, the body that is."


...it made me think.

We went to go send our condolences to the fam' today [3 December].

"We" being me and the colleagues at work.

Needed to express my grief in words wrapped with love.

In between hymns I let my mind go blank and cleared my mind of all doubt and insecurities so that God can work through me so to deliver a message of...love I guess.

It went something about how that which the late has contributed in our lives we must cultivate and grow so to give to the next person.

In the name of love, because allowing the anger of how he died will result in promoting such fears which will in turn result in those fears returning back to the sender.

A situation that is not advisable during such times of grief.

So we must let our heart soften so to generate all the support, the hope, the compassion, the hope that love sponsors.

Think I needed to tell the family that.

I feel good now.

In order to move on, I had to let go.

'Cause the longer I hold on, the more it's gonna hurt because what you resist, persists.

In Loving Memory Of Thabang Mashamaite



Thabang Mashaimate: Bad Ass Personified.

Boy I know it's typical of me to write shit like this only to celebrate you only after you passed on away ngezi 29 zaka November 2008.

Mara grend grend I am doing this not only in remembrance of wena [through de nepe le lebitso la hau] mara I need to do this to get this hurting out of my heart.

This thing eyoku khala over wena ngoba ngiya cava kuthi njengoba ngibangena es'panini anyeke ngiku bone...hai FUCK boy AZIKHIPHI!!

Yaz' ngithi amajita wase Tembisa ayangi shaya mapathi bodile ngabuyela ekasi ngizo phanda igazolo ezong' beka kwesakho.

Ende ngafika...yabona uma ungena endaweni and you don't even have to ask bra...cause you can feel it?

That sense of loss...that sense of "no more" hai, fuck joe it was then without question.

The shock of it all...

Ngoba Thursday besi khuthazana, si tsuna lama simba awes'pani kule department lena engana future next thing Fringas awu featuri Saturday nanku bathi awu sekho.

Jampas, same dag, ngapushaya ngapushaya lapho ngithi ngilokha khona ngahlanza.

Izolo uma ngivuka beku sasenjalo.

Yaz' iwaar has a tendency of sticking to it's guns, not even a budge.

Like I could shake it off.

Shake off having met you 2006 sisa span' ejozi.

Ngaku biza uMr. T [a name that stuck with you ever since]... dai tyd bewu salungisela ukuthi thola uNudity from Nudity wathi Beemer, ngacgwala wena!!

Sabangena eAlberton still the same Thabang, but with the lovely emails -wink wink- you sent my way I would say you "improved a little."

Mara wena uyinja chief.

Ende uk'khala kwam' anyeke ngiku cdine lana.

And with your passing there is something I must take with and forever hold it in my heart.

And maybe as soon as I get used to this fresh wound you have left, after having being ripped out of life only to converted to but a memory, I will see what you have taught me.

My condolences to all who know you, especially those that love you.

I won't forgot you, and that for me makes you Immortal.



The post above was written as a form of "releasing" I mention this so to apologise for not writing it in a universal language as opposed to the township slang I "boomed" my blog with.

Letter To A Friend - III Edition

Dearest Friend,

{I trust and pray you have received my first letter in which I prayed for change in your life.

Followed by another which was a remembrance of my love for you.

Just to continue to display God's persistent love for you through me, I write to you yet again.}

The world you are experiencing is but a world of your own design. 

A design that can be easily redesigned through being grateful of what you have and of what you are going to have. 

And it is due to this ability of choosing and changing what you what life to mean, making highly impossible to find yourself “stuck” in any one environment. 

Mind you, an environment of your own creation, just like the feeling of incarceration associated with it.

I believe freedom should begin first in the mind, and for it to spread through your entire body you have to show appreciation for having thought that thought of freedom until that thought becomes a dominant thought. 

It is from this very act that your sense of freedom will overflow within, and expand and multiply without. 

You have to feel free in order to experience freedom, and for you to feel it, you must first own it. 

It is the images in your head you hold longer than others that create your world as you see and experience. 

The thinking process that you hold dear to you, with no sign of letting go, is the thinking process that your life will be defined by.

Therefore with this said the only person that holds the keys to the cage you find yourself in, the cage that limits your growth; the cage that limits your expression; the only person that truly holds the key to your freedom is yourself.

And a way to free yourself is through appreciation and joyful anticipation.

Expansion through the power of gratitude.

An idea I will continue to feed you with persistently, until it breaks through the walls of your subconscious with you accepting this idea as Truth.

You are rich beyond your wildest dreams, you just can’t see it. 

What is worse is that you don’t believe it. 

You have to believe because that would lead to you reaching a state of knowing, and if you are grateful for what you know no one outside of you would tell you otherwise. 

Because then you would not only have faith in yourself, but you would be having faith in God. 

And having faith in God is having have in a world of wealth & abundance. 

It is this world that I implore you to be grateful for. 

Which in turn is being grateful for who you are, and what you are [this definition can only be done after plucking out what does not represent or define you first] is Magnificent.

A ball of Creative Energy that has the power to mould something, everything, anything, out of thin air.

You apply this power to create by holding clear images of the person you want be, with all the possessions this person has and being grateful for finally becoming this true image of yourself. 

This is you having so much faith that you honestly believe that you are that which you are becoming, and being in a state of appreciation of this faith, makes it possible for you to be anything you want to be.

And that, my friend, is true freedom.

Your world, your government, your society, your family can give you so much and go so far.

But it is when you thank God as opposed to asking God for your freedom, that you will feel as if you are given these blessings in the form of white robe to wear around your heart.

With that said life can therefore never be seen as four walls that surround and restrict you but an open field of opportunity. 

I say a field of opportunity because it can be compared to a blank canvas waiting on you to paint whatever it is you want out of life.

Now do you see who is truly calling the shots?

Gratefully yours,

M. Tshoaele

Why I Love Women’s Magazine

Why I Love Women’s Magazine

Why I Love Women’s Magazine

The sex articles and the sex tips (usually accompanied with animated pix) keep me coming for more…pun intended.

Then just as I was about chuck away the April 2008 edition of Cosmopolitan, after getting what I wanted from the mag - in preparation for my next meeting with my girl, I came across an interesting “Body & Soul: Mind Health – Happy Thoughts” section (page 164) by Lisa Witepski.

After scanning her articles I came to see that we share the same sentiments [that being on the personal development side since I doubt that we do, sexually I mean].

But enough sex talk let me share with you what she wrote:

“It’s annoying but true that sometimes when you’re trying to avoid thinking about something it repeatedly pops into your head.

While it’s almost impossible to stop unwanted thoughts, you can become more skilled at guiding your thinking, says Johannesburg life coach Kirsten Long of Coach4Life.

These exercises may help:
• ‘Increase your awareness of internal thoughts by stopping what you’re doing from time to time and asking yourself whether your thoughts at that moment were positive thoughts that add value to your life, or whether they were depleting your energy,’ says Long.

• Imagine your brain is a computer: every time a negative thought enters your mind, picture yourself highlighting that thought and then pressing delete. ‘You will find unwanted thoughts come up less frequently,’ she says.

• Your head is seldom empty of thought, so you’ll have to replace the negative thoughts with something else, says Long. ‘For example, replace “should” thoughts, such as “I should phone my mom”, with positive mental comments, such as “It’s great that I spent quality time with my parents last week.”’

Work On Changing Your Inner World First

It all starts with you.

When you look up and witness a world that you would rather not have to live through and experience, go inside yourself and change from within.

If you want to receive love from the world, then love yourself first so that you can give others the love that you Are, which will in turn be returned back to you.

If you want to receive happiness in your world find something to hold on to that makes you happy and give happiness to yourself 1st.

You will then find yourself giving others the happiness you are filled with, which in turn will be returned back to you.

If you want to witness more money in your world, simply give it. You would find yourself attracting opportunities that would bring in more money than that you gave out.

It all starts with you.

Because changing the world outside of you, usually this is you trying to change other people, is like weed out the problem at branch level and not at root level - the "root" that you are.

Like the saying goes: "The Way You See The Problem, Is The Problem."

Change how you react/respond to life. You would then be changing your circumstances.

Like Eleanor Roosevelt said, "No one can hurt you without your consent."


update: so practice, practice, practice, practice giving to yourself - done through the thought of love to each and every cell in your body played out through visualization - and spontaneously giving with the mental email of love, health and prosperity to the Universe, telling that you have more than enough.

Even smirked about it - ;) - but do it and practice, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

How I Spend My Days

These past couple of days I have been getting in the habit of giving.

It's like a gesture of love in the form of personal growth.

Because the way I see it what I promote I will get back in return, multiplied.

So what I am actually doing is contributing to my own growth as well.

So I find myself being addicted and being enthusiastic about who I am going to show God's love to by attempting to add value in their lives, in order for them to feel God in their soul - be it temporarily or for longer periods.

As if unconsciously saying "Out of all that which you are experiencing, God is with you. Waiting for you to call on Him for help."

"Thank You God For Helping Me Understand That This Problem Has Already Been Solved."

Calling on Him not through a prayer of want - 'cause you are just re-affirming the lack of it - but through a prayer of thanksgiving.

Thanking God for what "is not there" because you have the unwavering faith of BELIEVING that is there, because He said it is!

It is this ability to give that has allowed me to, at work, try to "Seek opportunities to change the atmosphere without commenting on the problems" as mentioned in a Rev. TD Jakes post I wrote a while back.

To do otherwise would be choosing to be reactive and allowing myself to be tossed around from circumstance to circumstance and having to falsely believe that life is in charge of my life and I have no say in the matter.

Reactive ways of thinking would eventually lead to a reactive lifestyle, a way of life that strips me of the power to dictate how I want to experience life because "I am not in charge," 'cause "Life, or God, is."

"Act Upon Or Be Acted Upon."

So be proactive in seeking Truth that will allow you to experience the abundance that exists in this very world we live in.

This can be done through the lessons that life teaches us, through the people we meet, through the books we read even by listening.

Listening to the voice within.

Meditation might not be for you, but it is through your quest for Truth that you will eventually come to terms that you need not go any further than your self to find God/Universe, so the faster you get used to the idea, the better!

Not only are you a gift to the world, but you are a gift to yourself too.

So begin by loving yourself, praising your accomplishments and achievements, so that you can love the next person, so that she can show love - "love" is used here as a verb not a feeling - to the next person.

Domino effect.

Because you are relentless in discovering yourself through others.

A "You" you would wish to experience more in life.

Uhm...what else...

Oh ja I'm currently reading a book by Stephen R. Covey I recommend you get a copy be it at your local bookstore, family or friend or by bribing someone, but if all fails Amazon.com can organize one for you.

6 Ways On How To Work In Any Environment By Rev. T.D. Jakes


  1. Don't expect to be appreciated. Your only expectation should be to get a paycheck. Don't come to work to have personal relationships. Don't allow what you do to affect who you are.
  2. Do your job well, but remember your mission. God put you there to be a Light.
  3. Seek opportunities to change the atmosphere without commenting on the problems. You have a God to talk to. You are on an assignment. Quietness and competence shall be your strength.
  4. Don't let your environment get inside of you. You should influence it, not let it influence you. Stop going to work to be fed. You didn't come to receive, you came to give.
  5. Increase your capacity to work with different personalities. God will often bless you through people you don't even like!
  6. Remember, where you are does not define where you are going. This will deliver you from frustration. God has a plan for your life. Keep your eye on the prize. When Peter did this, he was able to walk in what other people sank in!


The above was taken from an email that was circulating and thought would also be of benefit to you as it is to me.

Do not allowing anything outside of you diminish the Greatness that is YOU.

The Pursuit Of Happiness

I try my best to deliver to you, the reader, images of wealth, abundance, love, joy, hope and faith even though I - at the time - I might not be feeling so..."God-like."

Then again I might be telling you this and reminding you of how magnificent and awesome you are so to remind myself also and being able to carry such beliefs within me, everywhere I go.

The statement "give what you would like to receive" comes to mind.

I guess that's what priests do at the altar, not only are they preaching to the masses but they are preaching to themselves as well.

With LOVE being the most powerful gift you could give to the next person, a gift you would then be indirectly giving to yourself too.

It is through this blog that God speaks Truth to you, with you, through me.

Truth I must fall back on once I realize that I am on the wrong track or when I am not in a feel-good mood (not forgetting that when I'm in this mood all I can give to the next person is the mood equal to the one I am currently in).

Truth I must continue to promote like how It's A Matter Of Choice, Always.

Truth about The Magnificent Power Of Gratitude.

"Thank you God for helping me understand that this problem has already been solved."

I remember even writing about how having purpose in your life - How Bad Do You Want It - could make Presidents out of the poor.

We were brought into this world to give, and giving feels so good you could do it all day.

Be it with literature (i.e. Letters To A Friend) , music, art, architecture, intellectual contributions and creation, or through the power of healing...LOVE Manifested.

Because LOVE is everything.

Even though the mediocre might hate you for it.

Yet you love them even more because to do otherwise would just call upon harm to yourself.

But you are above that, you're above that.

With your knowledge you know that you can never be a victim because all the harm you experienced was brought into existence and drawn to you by your own hand.

You, Master Creator.

Creations you sculpt with your thoughts and words because what you think and say so shall it be so.

And it is these tools, thought and word, that we must use to draw us closer to the Source Supply, in order for us to inherit the Kingdom and be given all and more.

A process which people the likes of Neale Donald Walsh call ReCreation.

I will thus continue to feed you and Give You Truth the best where I know how so that you can do likewise to the next person, all the while being closer to the Supreme Divine because you are following your passion.

I thank you for allowing me to heal through this expression of love I have, hopefully, planted in your heart.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

I Don't Understand Why I Shouldn't Make Mistakes

I should take the time to take an objective look at my daily activities and way of life, to see whether I am slowly but surely gaining momentum heading towards my desired lifestyle, or running on a treadmill.

There is a force inside of me.

It's as if it's alive feeding off every new experience I encounter as if having this one single purpose of seeing how far I could stretch once I've reached my limits.

Like a barbaric savage entity throwing tantrums once it realizes that I refuse to use the God given creativity to grow and develop and become more.

And I also become more through experience.

I become "experienced" through not only making mistakes, because I can make the same mistake over and over again without benefiting from it, but through learning from these mistakes.

I must then convert this feeling of disappointment or this feeling of being upset into a signal that I should take notice of the lesson I must take from my mistake.

For if I don't I would be like a mouse running my butt off on a treadmill to no where.

Letter To A Friend - II Edition

Dear Friend,

I continue to display my love for you with yet another letter to you.

Remembering you, and reminding you of your abundance, beauty and wealth in abundance.

Wealth in all forms friend, I am not talking about the one you expect in your bank account.

An account now in the red feeding of your limited thinking, an illusion I will continue to look out for for you, just as I did in my letter prior to this one.

Stretch your soul friend.

When the air hits those moist spots that don't see much of the sun, you will shiver.

You will flinch when you come in to contact with that which makes you react through experience, especially since this very experience in question is new to you.

Do not head for the hills or cower away or turn and give up when the tongue of success lick against your skin.

You will either have to go through or go around or go under or climb over the wall you have come in to contact with, and you will find the balls to do this through your faith.

[You need to overcome, friend, for your success lies on the another side.]

Faith is produced through gratitude, so by praying and thanking the Abundant Supply for all the strength, the perseverance, the will power and pit bull persistence it is giving you in moving, everyday of your life, that one step closer to your dream-yet-still-to-manifest and burning desire you lose sleep over...

[breathe]

...so to elevate yourself from the negative, the bad, the not-worthy-statement-about-yous, it is then that you equip yourself with the tools and machinery necessary to drill through self constructed walls of temporary failure.

Every attempt you sum up might appear as a drop in the ocean, yet sends tremors to unknown parts below.

Tremors needed to cause the sea to part, making a pathway, a system that will connect you to your peace.

Yes, after all this hustling over there in the horizon of your inner self lies your peace, where you rest and drop off all your antagonistic connotations and unworthy manifestations inside the fading image of your former self.

Because now you have found the God that is you.

The God forever in you, that continues to long for recognition to the dismay of your former self hence the internal conflict that spills over in the form of frustration, depression, sadness, etc.

You can never truly be happy not unless you set yourself free from...yourself.

Yours persistently in love,

M.Tshoaele

How To Enhance The Power Of Association

Fill your life with more of the things you want to see more in your life.

Things you want to become.

Fill your mind with pictures, images, words, grammar, vocabulary that you want to associate yourself with.

Talk about it; imagine - continuously - how life would be like living life as the person you want to become.

The persistence in this exercise generates faith in your ability to recreate the image of yourself into that you are becoming.

And faith is where the money is.

Faith draws you closer to your desired goal, faster.

So your mission is to closely align yourself with things you want to see in yourself.

Be it books, seminars, people, movies, audio, visuals, words, experiences, thinking patterns.

And weed out all that which does not define Who You Are...be it books, seminars, people, movies, audio, visuals, words, experiences, thinking patterns.

I don't care how much you hold in me as a friend or a loved one but if your thinking contradicts my pursuit of wealth (financially and/or physically and/or spiritually and/or mentally) I will simply cut you out of my life.

I don’t ride with losers, especially those addicted to illusions of a lack-filled mentally that causes so much hurt and pain to herself and those around her.

And I refuse to be within your line of fire.

It would then be harder for my environment to influence me, but easier for me to influence my environment.

I cannot enrich the "poor" through regressive hand outs, the same hand outs that would be expected from me tomorrow and the day after that.

I would rather teach the poor to fish through creative means that way nabo bazo bona kuthi life is not a world of lack.

And all that I might want, I must just create...

...through gratitude...

...and gratitude produces faith...

And this I repeatedly tell her in vain.

Only if she would just listen.

And you can't hear whatever Truth I tell, if you don't stop tell yourself the lies you have exclusively programmed yourself to hear.

It’s like allowing yourself to tune in to a different frequency especially since the one you are currently in is so painful, so depressing, so frustrating, and so sad.

Emotions that contradict your being - who You Really Are - and thus you fight against it, only to observe these emotions fight back as is if asking you "why shouldn't you feel this way? Can’t you see the world around you??"

"World around you" being the frequency you are in.

An error hence the static.

Switch.

"How can I tell myself a lie?"

To which I reply "See, that's where the error is."

What you have grown to believe to be the truth are the very foundations that have led to such storms of fear that cause blizzards of so much negativity, it feeds off itself and builds up to a lifestyle you have come to believe as your "reality".

"As if saying this is how life is, and there is nothing you can do about."

And that's false.

Which brings us back to the reason for this post.

Associating yourself with things that would reflect the person You Are, will greatly remedy this temporary illusion of scarcity.

I say this because you have to BE the person that can DO the things you long for in order to HAVE that which you desire.

So I repeat Becoming should be the first step to all success.

And this is done through association.

Why I Believe "Love" Is Everything

An act of Love alone promotes the idea promotes the idea of abundance.

Like I am unconsciously saying to the recipient that "Life is More."

And for that moment when she believes in the connotation surrounding this "trick to the mind" - in believing in a world without limits, and she smiles as a result...

I would then have brought her closer to God than she would have been in a while.

Letter To A Friend - I Edition

Dearest Friend.

I look at you, and I see this man of such Power, such Inner Strength, and Inner Force that would challenge an ocean storm.

The energy I see – with my 3rd eye – swirling around you like multiple tentacles attached to this source energy is so magnificent, it covers a whole stadium.

You are a magic wand that calls forth any and all desires the mind could think off or wish upon itself, at any given moment.

You have the world at your command.

Yet at the same time you find any reasons to fight against and reject this truth...

You fight with so much passion...

You fight it with such authority.

Denying, with every fiber of your being, what the soul knows against what you have been thought to believe!

To believe in a lie that states that you exist within a limited universe.

Where once you have taken all that the universe has to offer to you and you have exhausted your supply, you will be left with lack.

And there is nothing you can do about it.

Where once you have reached this cul-de-sac and it is you against the earth's crust and you cannot go any further, you start to hurt, because you believe in this illusion.

You pain.

You cry.

You turn and radiate negativity that you throw out into the world only to receive it back in the form of experiences and circumstances.

Because that is what life is, you say…

A world of limitation.

Your sadness turns into anger and that anger concertizes into bile when you see images of success, images of wealth, and images of freedom drive by on the streets.

Or when they walk by in the shopping malls or seen on TV.

Jealousy.

How can the have what I cannot?

How can they live a life that I am working so hard for, but will never achieve?

Where am I falling short?

My prayers are not answered!

I cannot wait until He decides to answer I want change now!

There is no GOD!

Why am I going through so much struggle?

What’s the point of trying it’s not going to work anyway.

That will never work, look where it left [so and so].

I give up.

I don’t know what to do.

I live a poor life…etc.


Friend, I threw you a rope to grab on to so to escape from the well you are digging for yourself into yet you decide to hang yourself with it.

Friend I spoke to you words that will have led you to the truth but you shut your ears with the war drums of poverty.

Drums that want nothing to do with the idea that you are a volcano of abundant financial wealth waiting to erupt, because such good is not worthy of you.

“Wake up and live in the real world because you are living in a dream,” you tell me.

Better a dream than a nightmare, friend.

Then I ask myself, if you want me to look at the world with the same eyes you mind sees then how then, can I begin to even entertain the idea of the wealth?

Something that is rejected by your mind, regardless of the different forms it comes in.

But you know what friend?

When I look at you, I see abundance.

You on the other hand see yourself and come face to face with limitation.

I have to say friend, you have taught the mind well.

I mean to reject anything beyond your comfort zone of ukushodelwa nokungalungi takes some persistence and discipline and lastly innovation.

Friend I salute you.

You have mastered living a life of pain and anguish, always blaming others for your flawed, yet acceptable, creations.

I thank God for forgiving you and the sins you have passed on to others through these actions, actions motivated by a thought of fear.

Such attempts at casting off the bad, friend, are under developed.

What I mean is that you are playing for the wrong side friend.

And your soul, the very soul you continue to whip with all the strength you can master, will continue to be tortured because it knows the truth friend.

The truth it will continue to vocalize regardless of the torn flesh of its back from the abuse you keep unleash due to its defiance.

How dare the soul defy your law of fear that governs your very being when it is blinded by love?

You are becoming friend.

For me so say you disappoint me friend, would mean I am disappointed in myself.

And there is no way I will allow myself to think as you think and call upon such harm as you do into existence.

Haven’t you caused enough damage already to not only yourself, friend, but to the people around you?

Those you hold dear too?

You need to change your thinking friend.

What I mean by this is that you must create rather than compete.

Change your mind from being a competitor to a mind that creates.

Friend, because a mind that competes will allows run out, yet one that is creative creates new resources to live off.

Friend I am talking about a life of abundance.

You don’t believe in one then go back to your world of hurt, recurring.

Yours spitefully,

M. Tshoaele

I Have Arrived

Yonk'into ihlala ilunga, ukuthi kwamele sibekezele kuze kube njalo.

It's like taking a seat at the train station and waiting for your train to arrive.

Having to sit it out, seeing people boarding and getting off their respective train wondering why don't you do the same and opt for second best.

And yet you sit it out, humbled, radiating inner peace and joy of the thought of getting in the train that would take you straight home.

The train that will take you to your longed for destination, your burning desire.

And then having to hear yourself say "I Have Arrived."

And so you sit.

Dazzling others by your discipline and magnificence, even though they might try to inject you with doubt.

Doubt that only strengthens your belief.

As this display of envy only confirms to you that it's coming sooner than you expected.

And this every notion upsets them because you will leave them with a sense of inner dissatisfaction and the illusion of lack.

So you smile.

Because all is well...all is well.

And just then you hear it pull in.

And you jump in.

It's your turn to wave goodbye now because you have arrived.

Your patience and your belief and your faith in yourself and abilities has made you King.

You always win regardless of results.

Failure is but only a nudge from the Formless of how close you are to Success.

So don't let anger and frustration cloud your line of sight, but rather wake up see...and see that you have arrived and all is well.

So you smile.

As you sit waiting, mumbling to yourself, "I Have Arrived."

Because the Truth is: All Is Well.

The Foundations Of The Church

I guess for me to experience God the opposite should exist.

That being fear.

And according to the Church, my Church, I must work for the salvation of my soul through participating in the activities of the church.

That way I will guarantee myself a one way ticket to Heaven.

Because this is written in the Bible, I cannot quote you the verse as yet, and that means God said so.

And who am I do go against what God has "said?"

...well what God has said, and what Man has written are two entirely different things.

Especially when what Man has written goes against what I feel in relation to the scripture.

Free will vs. The 10 Commandments.

I believe that God is not a contradiction.

I do believe though that if one thinks thoughts that do harm to one's self, they will be promoted into the world and come back to her in the form of circumstances and experiences.

So to sideline this law, one must do and think things that a God-like.

What I mean by this is that if I do things that are motivated by feelings of love, I am indirectly/ directly promoting the word of God.

Because God is Love.

And one should not sacrifice anything to experience Love.

One should just be...something I will explain to you later.

Wena just keep in mind that if what you feel goes against what you hear, listen to the voice within.

Because that is when God is talking to you.

ReCreation III

In ReCreation part 2 I wrote, in layman’s terms, that I receive what I promote.

I receive, in the form of circumstances and experiences, that which I have created relative to the dominate images I hold in my head and my dominate feelings.

Feelings which I referred to as my vibration.

“A human transmitting tower that sends out a frequency which bounces back as circumstances and experiences.”

It is this feedback I receive that is in fact Me in a different light.

As if I am sitting back watching and experiencing myself from a different perceptive.

That is why it is improper to be pissed off or angered about what so and so is doing to me, because I am just experiencing a different side of myself.

I am not saying that I should refrain from getting ticked off by a taxpayer I am assisting, who is trying to undermine my intelligence.

I should and I must…but I must take a moment, breath [what I call Releasing] and realize that I must get my hands dirty and Influence and ReCreate my experience of myself.

Because this is “Musa” in another form.

Albeit a disrespectful version of myself, worthy of a lashing, it is still me.

“every thing is energy” I was reminded.

So wrapping all of my actions with a fabric of love, guarantees me a high and lucrative return on my investments.

In the form of people, circumstances, and experiences that will echo the love I am promoting, keeping my in this cycle of abundance and joy and happiness.

…because I call the shots.

Recreation II

I was thinking that for there to be a frequency, there must be a vibration.

It is this frequency being transmitted by the Source, that returns back to you [the Source] multiplied.

So in essence, the Source can actually "predict" the future through the vibration it is in.

"do unto others, what you would like to be done unto you"

If the above is true, do you see how we create our life experiences through the vibration, feelings, we are in.

And your feelings will tell you immediately what type of thoughts you are thinking.

"...I think of myself as a magnet, and I know that a magnet will attract to it" - John Assaraf

The Source can depict what vibration it is in, with or without external influences.

I tend to allow my environment to influence me and then falsely believing that I am not in total control of my life.

Since external forces are the ones responsible for throwing me in whatever direction they want.

But after taking a moment and beginning to become conscious of the things I do and say and believe, I begin to see that I am not the puppet but the puppeteer.

Because it is these thoughts and actions and feelings that I "throw out" into the world, that boomerang back in the form of circumstances and experiences, related to the vibration I am in.

Be it a vibration of fear or a vibration of love, or anything between.

Who's truly calling the shots?

Recreation I

In a previous post tagged “Enemy Of My Enemy” I spoke about being filled up from within.

I was reminded about this statement this morning when I reminded myself of who I am.

And part of what makes up Musa aka Musawenkosi Tshoaele is this very blog:

http://musa23.blogspot.com.

My creation.

A creation that always me to look at myself from an objective perspective.

To add to or subtract from anything I love or want to do away with.

The art of "recreation."

"...the sculpture your are sculpting is you..." - Joe Vitale.

The thought of it warms my heart, and I will go deeper into this in my posts to come.

How To Differentiate A Friend From Your Worst Enemy

LACK IS AN ILLUSION

I have, more like had, a friend who thrived on competing for almost everything he wanted from life.

"Life...Universe...God...same thing."

He even read books about how one must "fight" for whatever he wants.

Survival of the fittest, be it mentally or physically.

He expects so much from his environment.

What I mean by this is that he wants his environment to give to him.

An open invitation for his environment to influence...him.

Always wanting to be the receiver, something which is out of sync with his core design as a Giver.

If you think about it, that's a whole new perspective of looking at the world...

Like, instead of you expecting others to contribute to you growth or influence you, why don't you do the influencing?

'Cause if you think about expecting others to give to you is in actually making a statement that you lack that which you are expecting.

"Just like asking for something in a prayer to God, for example, shows your lack of it."

"Where as giving a prayer of thanksgiving prior its physical attainment produces maximum results."


Your actions are continuously screaming out what your dominate thoughts are entertaining.

Which in this case are thoughts of lack.

It's an unconscious reaction of limitation that one becomes victim to.

As to why?

Well I could make assumptions such as maybe picking such personality traits from people you admire and mimic through thought and action.

But honestly and personally, I don't know why we do that....ok maybe I do but that's another post and I'm deviating from this one so let's make a U-turn.

But anyways here I am thinking that this guy ["friend"] is motivated by fear because he keeps on competing for change.

He lacks it, and continues to remind himself and reaffirm it through believing in lack symbolised by the physical objects around him, or the "lack of them".

What I have come to term as "Appearance."

A question I want to throw at you: How do you know that you are broke?
  • Is it from numbers of your bank balance?

  • Would you know you broke from the empty bread bin with hungry mouths to feed, yours included?

  • You know you broke from begging for money from people?

  • Or is it from the worn out clothes or footwear that have been to more trips to the repairman than you would like?

I mean all the above is "true"...because you believe it.

You don't have anything else to tell you otherwise right?

I mean if you broke, you broke there is no two ways about...

But then again if you think and feel broke, mentioning it every chance you get, I mean...wouldn't all you see be anything and everything but lack?

Or things that suggest it.

So in fact you have just successfully managed, with flying colours, to get yourself trapped in a net of your consistent and persistent design of "the lack of."

If you believe in something it tends to become true.

ESPECIALLY if you continue to do through the company you keep.

"So how you are going to pay for your next instalment?"

"You should have never have bought that."

"Don't kid yourself you just like me, you don't have money."

"How the hell do you think you can afford that?"

"How?" "How?" "HOW?"

Stuff like that reminds your brain that "Oh ja, I must remember to be broke today again, I almost forgot."

"My friend is such an awesome friend by reminding me that I am as broke as he is, and I will never amount to anything more in my life, ever."

I don't know but there is something about inflicting pain against oneself that gets people addicted to it.

Masochism [I'm educating you, look it up:D].

This depression is so addictive that they can't help but sway back and forth from it like a "quick fix."

I, on the other hand, surround myself with wealth!!

Wealth in the form of surrounding me with friends who aim for success regardless of what is said outside of them, for example.

That true success that does not compete.

You compete, you ending up fighting.

You fight for something because of how you have allowed it to influence you.

Putting you in a position of reacting, or being receiver.

The success I mentioned above is the success that influences others.

The success that, the friends I love achieve through GIVING.

And hear me well here, you can only give if - and only if - you believe you are abundant.

Now tell me, how - in this-world-of-love-in-all-forms - can a mind that believes in a universe that is limited, be able to Give?

You are what you believe, so if you say something is limited, you are just saying that it is You that is limited.

"...built in the likeness and image of God."

That means you can create like God can.

So you rip yourself completely off your "creation ability" by not believing in wealth...beyond reason.

"Choose your thoughts, because the manifest and become your express."

You now deep, deep, down in your heart that this is true.

That is why you are rejecting it because acceptance of this takes you out of your comfort zone.

And we don't want that to happen now do we?

Why Financial Success Eludes Me

I told my girlfriend that there will come a time when I would write an entry on how, and more importantly Why, success - or the possibility of it, makes me uncomfortable.

And just like my previous post about The Power Of Purpose, I will turn within to find the answers to this self imposed question.

I would think that success to me, be it financially or otherwise, eludes me due to my low self esteem.

I think there is a certain confidence that a successful person has in order for her not to only attain wealth (be it spiritually, mentally, or physically) but to also believe she deserves it.

Or that she is worthy of it.

A certain "money-conscious" attitude that seems to attract the good in every act that she does.

A state of mind that anyone can adopt by fail to do so due to the perceptions they hold about themselves with relations to success.


Who Is Musawenkosi Tshoaele?


One of the guys I am following on Twitter mentioned something about not referring at your past failures or experiences but to undertake whatever task you are facing with a new and positive attitude.

A mindset free from negative influences but a mind filled with positivity and enthusiasm.

It made me think of how I allow past bad experiences influence my present action.

I tend to dwell more on the bad experiences and feeling imprisoned due to them instead of celebrating the good experiences.

I think it came from believing that humility comes from accepting things as they were.

Which was, at that time, having to work around the lack my life was surrounded with and not longing for more.

As a kid I was giving the idea that wanting more would mean that I am ungrateful for what I already have.

Even though what I did have warranted the longing for more.

Irrational I know, but it was the credo I have lived most of my life by.

And accepting a concept either than the one I was raised by takes me out of my comfort zone.

And anything beyond my comfort I reject, it's a reflex that has me going in circle.

Averting success in every corner.


"Success Lies At The Edge Of Our Comfort Zone"


It was like, every time I accomplished something worth rejoicing I immediately (and unconsciously) scold myself from ever enjoying the moment, enjoying the feeling because I did not display "humility".

And humility to me definition was being poor and staying poor.

I don't slouch or hang my head to show my humility.

And because I don't do that I am being disrespectful to the "universe" or "my ancestors" or "God."

And we can't have that since I was raised to respect all.

This has become a daily habit that I imposed on almost every achievement I have accomplished.

Like that "one step forward, and two step back" effect I am having with success, or the acquiring of it.

Come to think about it it's quite ironic that I now preach about how one's most important desire is to get rich.

Law of attraction this, law of attraction that.

Promoting the legitimacy of following your desire especially if it is moving you towards the wanting for more even if it might be against those religious beliefs you hold dear to, for example.

Or even going against your upbringing.

Or, like in my case, both.


What Needs To Happen?

  • Prayer Of Thanksgiving: Gratitude.

  • Visualization Exercises.

  • Autosuggestion.

  • Plan and Execute.

  • Celebrate Achievements, past and present.

  • Hang around guys who will boost my self esteem.

  • Believe in my magnificence, like any other "part of God" would.

  • And to try by all means to think in terms of the Love that creates and is thus abundant, instead of the Fear that competes and is thus limiting.


I must also remember that success is another way God communicates with me.

Another way to tell me that He loves me without condition and that I must look out for more ways He can talk to me.

And allow myself to experience that love.

I am closer to God with every successful act I do.

I cannot allow financial success elude me because I am in actuality running away from God.

I do that, I shut myself out from the Supply.

Damned to experience a life of lack.

"Wealth Is A State Of Mind"

"Feel good.

My joy.

Declare: Joyful Expectation.

I am so happy and grateful now that I am R 500 000 Richer!

The images I hold in the mind, I attract.

Hold on to the thoughts of what I want.

Focus with all my intention.

Focus on what I want.

Attracting predominate thoughts.

What I think about, I bring about.

Law obedient to thought.

Positive thoughts are powerful.

Choose your thoughts.

Thoughts create feelings.

Receive what I feel about.

Predominant feelings.

Thoughts & feelings create my life.

1. Ask – let universe know what I want
2. Believe – believe that it is already yours: no need to know how it will manifest “I know, like I know, like I know that it is on the way”
3. Receive – feel the way you feel when it arrives NB: need feel wonderful, need to feel good.

If action is required, don’t delay. Don’t second guess. Don’t’ doubt. When the nudge from within is there…ACT.

The universe likes speed.

To change my circumstances I must change my thinking.

List of things to be grateful.

What I already have.

Attitude of gratitude.

Visualize.

And act as if I have already.

When I visualize I materialize.

The mind can’t distinguish whether I am really doing it or it’s a practice.

When you’ve been there in the mind, you will go there in the body.

Feelings that creates the attraction.

Dwell upon the end result.

Feel the joy.

Feel the happiness = opens the doorway for the universe to express itself.

YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND!

Getting into the state of already acquiring!

1. Decide what I want.

2. Believe I can have it.

3. Believe I deserve and that it is possible for me.

4. Close my eyes for several minutes.

Visualize having what I already want and feeling the feelings of already having.

Come out of that and focus on what I am grateful for already and enjoy it, release to universe and trust that the universe will figure how it will manifest."

How Bad Do You Want It?

I am asking myself why is it that I am still working at getting to where I want to be in life.

Then I realised that I want the freedom but I am afraid of the hustle.

Talk is cheap.

Action, on the other hand, takes balls.

Of the bronze type.

Then again it is only as hard as I make it.

Then it came to me that Napoleon Hill mentioned something about Planning in a book of his I read.

And the persistence and resilience behind the realisation of the goal, in order for it to manefest into the physical.

Not only in my mind but on paper too, for starters anyway.

I continued my inner dialogue with another question of what could be stopping me from writing up such a plan.

The persistence, the resilience, the passion is there to see me through any undertaking.

I mean look at what I have acquired in such a short space of time.

For my age I could say, in comparison my fellow counterparts, I am living a life of luxury.

But what could be hindering me from reaching my ultimate desire, which all begins with a plan, my blueprint, towards its manifestation?

The one word that came from within, in reply to the above was Procrastination...

There are unexplainable forces that draw you closer to your desire every time you focus on them with the purpose of seeing them become reality.

The more you would want something, with every fiber of your being, the more these unseen forces break through barriers with unrealistic speed in order for you to receive that which you long for.

But it all starts with a plan.

This vision of where you want to be, who you want to become, and what you want to have.

The statement "live believing, with thought and feeling, that you have received and you will receive" comes to mind.

But the equation I missed in the above formula is having thisPurpose, that holds the magic of my attraction.

It's that INTENSE feeling you have before you receive.

Believing that it [my goal or desire] is true, mine, for me, and not allowing anyone or anything to tell me otherwise.

"Ask and ye shall receive."

So what was happening was that from day one I was making powerless affirmation without the "death wish mentality..." mentioned by Chika Onyeani in the book "The Capitalist Nigger," of the realisation of the purpose behind the affirmation, which is imperative with regards to the whole exercise.

It's the Purpose behind my affirmations that carry the weight and power that moves people and circumstances towards the thing that I desire.

And it is this "secret" that I need to internalise and move mountains with in order for my dream to become tangible.

...the Purpose behind the goal and its attainment.

So in truth you can really get anything you want, but it all depends on Who Badly You Want It.

And I am not talking about staying true to the fulfillment of this purpose for the next 30 days and then putting it on hold when something else comes your way.

I am referring to the unwavering faith in this purpose that will last you a lifetime, if need be, until whatever desire you wish for, and has become a part of you, and eventually comes into being.

What lies to be seen is whether I have the inner willpower to burn the boats behind me and face either death or glory...

- Musawenkosi Tshoaele

What Is The Purpose Of Life? Part III

I thank Mbalenhle Ndovela, my facebook friend, for the inspiration behind this post.

To experience more of the good things that life has to offer, one must surround herself with people that contribute, in one way or the other, to her personal growth.

These are friends who add value to your life and don't make more withdrawals than deposits in your Emotional Bank Account.

(This "account" is a concept created by Dr. Stephen R. Covey which came to my attention in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.)

Surrounding yourself with anything else will limit your thinking instead of expanding it.

And a mind that expands will continue to do so especially one that seeks Truth.

Neale Donald Walsch touched on something, when I got a chance to listen to only a portion of his audio material where he was having Conversations with God, that in truth there are only two main emotions:
  • an emotion of love;
  • and an emotion of fear.
So in actuality we base our decision in either a sponsoring thought of Love or a sponsoring thought of Fear.

It is the latter that both my cousin, Nombali Ntuli, and me feel that most of us Thinking Beings favour the most.

Hence the condition the world is currently in.

It is from this "source of fear" that spawns out feelings of, as shown in The Secret DVD, of:
  • Depression;
  • Guilt;
  • Resentment;
  • Hatred;
  • Revenge;
  • Anger;
  • Criticism/ Blame;
  • Worry;
  • Annoyance;
  • and Boredom.
Feelings that Lisa Nichols says are "...those feelings that don't make you feel empowered."

Whereas its complete opposite, a "source of Love", blossoms out - in its contagious abundance, feelings of:
  • Satisfaction;
  • Hope;
  • Joyful Expectation;
  • Happiness/ Excitement;
  • Passion;
  • Joy;
  • and Gratitude.
In retrospect it was this emotion of fear that I was brought up with by two of my greatest teachers: both my mother and my father.

And if I were to receive Love, it would be conditional.

"If you don't do this I won't give you that," for example.

Please don't get me wrong, I am just trying to prove a point. I am not being ungrateful.

And Jack Canfield did mention "...about 85% of families are dysfunctional, so it's like all of a sudden you aren't so unique"


Then again how else could they have raised me either than the way THEY have been raised?

Therefore hanging with so called friends who propagate such fears with the way they perceive life, through their thoughts, actions, words and feelings would also influence my perception of life towards the negative.

With me stating that the purpose of life is for us to experience Joy, I don't think surrounding myself with people who are down and are taking me down with them, with their attitude towards life, would be a smart move on my part.

And as for you, well that is something I wanted you to think about.

"...As within, so without."

What Is The Purpose Of Life? Part I

The purpose of life is to experience Ultimate Joy...


- Musa23

This Is Why Dreamers Are The Backbone Of The World

I want us to play tag.

Just like I am about to tell you about the "Me" I want to experience on a daily basis, I dare you to tell me about the "You" you would want to experience also.

I want to experience a "Me" that owns a Publishing company that is in association with a like-minded oublishing company that deals mainly with publishing books for "underground" South African writers to the South African market, with the vision of distributing them globally.

I want to experience a "Me" that needs not work for someone else so to only generate a single income stream.

I want to experience a "Me" that builds income streams that come to me from Multiple sources on a consistent basis.

A "Me" that receives cheques in the mail.

A "Me" that receives consistent deposits to my account from foreign and local transactions every month of every week of every day.

I want to experience a "Me" that drives and owns as grey Aston Martin DBS.

I want to experience a Rich "Me", a Me that is never limited financialy but is blessed with an abundance of financial wealth.

I want to experience a "Me" that trades and invests in the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

I want to experience a "Me" that is a shareholder.

I want to experience a "Me" that has money notes and coins within his grasps, money notes and cents "He" will use to experience Joy, Glory and most importantly Love.

I want to feel a "Me" that is Free...from All.

I want to feel a "Me" that Creates wealth beyond reason instead of one that competes for it.

For it is from creating that I draw up a formula to used by all.

Competing for it would only suggest that one should fight for wealth, thus propagating a life of fear and not a much desired life of love.

Because fear is limitation while Love is unmeasurable abundance!

I want to feel a "Me" that remembers that He is Creator of his circumstances and people around him.

A "Me" that remembers that for him to change his experiences he must change his perception of "reality."

"Reality" begin Appearance, what Wallace Wattles suggests as the end product of My creative process.

I want to experience a "Me" that acknowledges that all that surrounds me has been Created by "Me," either consciously or unconsciously, and that buy criticising or insulting or cursing that which I experience - I curse myself too.

I want to feel a "Me" that is conscious of His thoughts and feelings and watches what He says because my words are also tools I use to create.

I want to experience a "Me" that is happy.

I want to experience a "Me" that is grateful.

I want to experience a "Me" that remembers to always Listens to God.

I want to experience a "Me" is more.

I want feel an abundant "Me," financially, spiritually, mentally, and physically.

I want to experience a "Me" that works towards success in everything that He does.

I want to feel, I want to experience the God in "Me" through all my thoughts, feelings and actions.

I want to experience a "Me" that does each individual act successfully, doing what needs to be done today never leaving it for tomorrow.

I want to experience the purpose of life.

Another Grateful Visit By The Author Of The Science of Getting Rich - Wallace Wattles

These are some of the notes I found interesting from the material written by Wallace D. Wattles.

“hold the vision of yourself in the right business, with the purpose to get into it, and the faith that you will get into it, and are getting into it; but act in your present business.

Use your present business as the means of getting a better one, and use your present environment as the means of getting into a better one.

You can advance only by being larger than your present place; and no man is larger than his present place who leaves undone any work pertaining to that place.

The world is advanced only by those who more than fill their places.

Do, every day, all that can be done that day.

If, now, it is possible for you to make each act an efficient one, you see again that the getting of riches is reduced to an exact science, like mathematics.

You can make each act a success, because all power is working with you; and all power cannot fail.

…successful action is cumulative in its results.”

Change Your Thinking, So That Your Circumstances Can Change As Well

These are notes I took from The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles that I highlighted due to their relevance in my life.

Notes I thought I should share.

"No one of the 3 –body, mind, or soul – can live fully if either of the others is cut short of full life and expression.

Desire is possibility seeking expression, or function seeking performance.

There is abundance of opportunity for the man who will go with the tide instead of trying to swim against it.

The Formless Stuff responds to the needs of man; it will not let him be without any good thing.

To think what you want to think is to think Truth, regardless of appearance.

There is one Thinking Substance from which and by which all things are made.

every thought held in this Substance becomes a form, and that man can so impress his thoughts upon it as to cause them to take form and become visible things.

One Substance desires to live more in you; hence it wants you to have all the things you can use.

…give to every man more than you take from him

…claim it as already yours.

If you fix upon your consciousness the fact that the desire you feel for the possession of riches is one with the desire of Omnipotence for more complete expression, your faith becomes invincible."

"The Way You See The Problem, Is The Problem."

I need to change my perception of life.

I need to change the way I see things.

To see life as Abundant and Unlimited rather than basing my beliefs on the lack and limitation I see around me.

Why?

I have come to believe in a theory taken from a book by Wallace D. Wattles that: Life Is Developing.

Life is in a continuous flow and motion of growth.

Life is more.

That is why we have advanced from the Stone Age to our this current Age.

That is why seeds grow and develop into oak trees for example.

That is why one sentence grows and develops into the best selling religious book of all time.

That is why from sitting I learnt how to crawl, to stand, to walk, to run, and to fly.

A motion of development that is so easy to do due to its alignment to the laws of nature.

A law of motion.

A law, I believe, I should not swim against in order for me to reap the benefits that come from it.

That come from being “natural”.

And it is because of this motion that will be forever growing and continuously in the state of development that for me to believe in terms of lack and limitation, when I actually live in a world that keeps on supplying the fortunate with more, would only be confining me within self constructed walls of lack.

This improper and sinful perception will not only keep me poor financially but mentally and spiritually so.

With the dissatisfaction and frustration and resentment and depression that comes along with it.

A cycle of negativity that will keep me burying myself alive and blocking me from noticing the lifelines I would need to scoop me out of the hell I have constructed and thus exposed to.

All because of the way I see things, my perception.

A lifetime conditioning that needs to be “de-conditioned” through methods like Autosuggestion explained in detail in the book Think and Grow Rich where I can influence my subconscious mind through resilient self suggestion.

And prayer.

Keeping in mind that by asking I am stating that I don't have that which I ask for.

Thus pushing it further away from me.

I should rather be thankful for its attainment even before it comes to me physically.

The strength of the emotion of gratitude I hold while giving this prayer of thanksgiving will determine how fast God show me a way of bringing that which I am thankful for to me.

In this case a perception change.

This exercise will also strengthen my Faith.

Something which needs much exercise.

The power of Gratitude

Make Every Experience Inspirational

I read somewhere that “humans are creatures of habit.”

I see how true that is from the restlessness I feel 5 hours in my evening shift.

Something I told myself I wouldn’t do after going through a bit of Neale Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God.”

Which states something along the lines of: By making a statement or judgement on a particular thing, I am in effect judging myself.

This is so if I believe in the theory that I am the creator of all the things that I encounter in my life.

It’s like creating a sculptor and saying: “This is a bad sculpture and it makes me feel depressed”…then it is not the sculpture that is “inadequate” or flawed, but it is the craftsman.

Now coming back to the period of boredom I encounter 5 hours in my shift…

This is not a true reflection of me.

But here I am, at work, counting my toes.

Not literally of course, so not to cause a scare.

I guess a less conscious mind would continue to allow his environment influence him, the way I am, instead of influencing the environment.

Something I have been guilty of for the past months pre-Sir Richard Branson’s “Screw It, Let's Do It” and my latest being from N.D. Walsch’s “Conversations with God” mentioned above.

Material I would recommend to improve how to deal with your work life and your spiritual life.

A habit I would rather jump in.

A habit of seeking for opulence rather than being confined to believe in the illusion of lack.

Gratitude – A Chapter From The Science Of Getting Rich

“Convey an idea of your wants to the Formless Substance.

Relate yourself to Formless Intelligence in a harmonious way.
  • 1st believe that there is one Intelligent Substance from which all things proceed.

  • 2nd believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire

  • 3rd relate yourself to it by feeling of deep and profound gratitude.

…the nearer we live to the source of wealth, the more wealth we shall receive…

…the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind closer in touch with the source from which the blessings come.

Gratitude…will keep you in close harmony with creative thought and prevent you from falling unto competitive thought.

The Law of Gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal, and in opposite directions.

The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to the Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force; it cannot fail to reach that to which it addressed, and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you.

If your gratitude is strong and constant; the reaction in Formless Substance will be strong and continuous.

…for it is gratitude that keeps you connected with Power.

Without gratitude you cannot long keep from dissatisfied thought regarding things as they are.

You fix attention upon the common, the ordinary, the poor, and the squalid and mean; and your mind takes the form of these things.

Then you will transmit these forms or mental images to the formless, and the common, the poor, the squalid and mean will come to you.

…to fix your attention on the best is to surround yourself with the best and become the best.

The Creative Power within us makes us into the image of that to which we give our attention.

We are Thinking Substance, and thinking Substance always takes the form of that which thinks.

The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore it tends to become the best; it takes the form or character of the best.

faith is born of gratitude.

The grateful mind continually expects good things, and expectation becomes faith.

It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you; and to give thanks continuously.

And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude”



Above are notes I have summarised from The Science Of Getting Rich written by Wallace D Wattles.
