The Commanding Power of Belief

“The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.” – James Allen

The Power of Belief affects everything we experience in our lives. Things show up in our lives because of what we believe, consciously or subconsciously. The opposite is also true; nothing shows up if we don’t believe it will.

How do we get our beliefs?

Our belief system is something that grows with us from pre-birth to the present moment and is a large part of what we use to create the imaginary image of our selves and our ego. Most of our beliefs we absorb from people around us, primarily family and friends. There is a snowball effect. As we grow older we tend to reinforce our own beliefs by surrounding ourselves with people that share our beliefs.

Throughout life we are told who or what we are. We are bombarded with comments and remarks which are simply distorted opinions of others attempting to describe who we are. Our beliefs act as filters and control everything we think, our reactions and our emotions. Whether we like it or not, beliefs run our lives. When things aren’t going the way we like it’s because of the power of belief.

The truth is we have the potential to do or be anything if we will let go of our limiting beliefs. Overcoming limiting beliefs is very important because they are usually based on fear and fear will make you weak and paralyze any chance you have of adopting new positive beliefs in their place.

Mark Twain described his own experience this way: “I am a very old man and have suffered a great many misfortunes, most of which never happened.”

Why do we put ourselves through the agony and stress of our negative and limiting beliefs? The answer is we don’t have to and when you realize this it becomes progressively easier to stop and recognize the true power of belief.

How do we get the power of belief to work in our favor?
Our brains don’t know the difference between internal and external “reality.” External reality being what is detected by any one or combination of our five senses (touch, sight, smell, taste and sound) and internal being your thoughts. This explains why the power of belief has such an influence on our lives and why it is so important to recognize how powerful our thoughts are, both negative and positive.

Knowing this should motivate us to be the master of our thoughts and beliefs and not the other way around. Unfortunately, our emotions often get in the way and emotions are the favorite food of our negative beliefs.

How to change your beliefs:

  • If you want to change, stop thinking and believing that you are a product of your past and start acting and behaving like the person you want to be. Remember your brain doesn’t know the difference. Start thinking and believing that you already are what you wish to be and in as much detail as possible. At first, this will take a strong constant conscious effort. Like most things though the more you do it the more natural it becomes. YOU CAN BE OR DO WHATEVER YOU THINK YOU CAN! This is the power of belief. You already use it; you just have to agree to shift the power of who you are away from your old self to the strong powerful spirit that you really are.
  • You cannot escape the power of belief but you can control it.  Practice being your own watcher and catch yourself thinking, acting, reacting, behaving or making decisions based on fear that limit or deny what you actually deserve, earned or are capable of doing. Silently laugh and refuse to give in to those “old” limiting thoughts… tell your self to stop it!
  • Nothing ever changes if you don’t do anything different. If you recognize your belief system to be limiting and full of fear, make it your intention to take action. Action always cures fear!
  • Using a mirror is a proven technique for changing your beliefs. In his 1948 classic The Magic of Believing Claude Bristol describes the mirror technique like this – “Those of you who have been in the army know what it means to come to attention – stand fully erect, bring your heels together, pull in your stomach, keep your chest out and your head up. Now breathe deeply three or four times until you feel a sense of power, strength, and determination. Next, look into the very depths of your eyes, tell yourself that you are going to get what you want – name it aloud so you can see your lips move and you can hear the words uttered. Make a regular ritual of it, practice doing it at least twice a day, mornings and evenings – and you will be surprised at the results.”Make a habit of looking at yourself in the mirror whenever you can and repeat an affirmation or mantra that reflects the change you want. For example, when trying to overcome illness say “I am strong and healthy.” If trying to lose weight say “I am lean and beautiful.” Make up your own and keep it positive. Remember to never think or say what you don’t want because that will just attract more of the same.
  • Give no credence to what others belief of you. Be connected to your spirit and listen to the persistent little voice inside. That voice that has the answers to these questions: What would you do or how would you be, or where would you live if you knew you could do it without any fear or limitations or resources you don’t currently have? What would you like your life to be like? What job or business would you have? What would you look like? How would you dress? Put your answers down on paper or index cards and read them daily. Imagine yourself already being this person. Befriend people that are more like the person you want to be. Dress more like this person. Believe you already are this person, in your new life, and soon you’ll surely be!  Use the power of belief to your advantage, don’t let it control you!
  • Finally, you must prepare yourself to receive what you ask for. You can think positively, dismiss limiting beliefs and visualize a new you, but nothing is likely to change if you aren’t ready or accepting of the change. In Think and Grow Rich Napoleon Hill wrote “There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.

GOOGLE’S AI FIGHT CLUB WILL TRAIN SYSTEMS TO DEFEND AGAINST FUTURE CYBERATTACKS

Google’s AI Fight Club Will Train Systems to Defend Against Future Cyberattacks

IN BRIEF

Google Brain and data science platform Kaggle have announced an “AI Fight Club” to train machine learning systems on how to combat malicious AI. As computer systems become smarter, cyberattacks also become tougher to defend against, and this contest could help illuminate unforeseen vulnerabilities.

REINFORCING AI SYSTEMS

When artificial intelligence (AI) is discussed today, most people are referring to machine learning algorithms or deep learning systems. While AI has advanced significantly over the years, the principle behind these technologies remains the same. Someone trains a system to receive certain data and asks it to produce a specified outcome — it’s up to the machine to develop its own algorithm to reach this outcome.

Alas, while we’ve been able to create some very smart systems, they are not foolproof. Yet.

This AI fight club will feature three adversarial challenges. The first (non-targeted adversarial attack) involves getting algorithms to confuse a machine learning system so it won’t work properly. Another battle (targeted adversarial attack) requires training one AI to force another to classify data incorrectly. The third challenge (defense against adversarial attacks) focuses on beefing up a smart system’s defenses.Data science competition platform Kaggle wants to prepare AI systems for super-smart cyberattacks, and they’re doing so by pitting AI against AI in a contest dubbed the Competition on Adversarial Attacks and Defenses. The battle is organized by Google Brain and will be part of the Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) Foundation’s 2017 competition track later this year.

“It’s a brilliant idea to catalyze research into both fooling deep neural networks and designing deep neural networks that cannot be fooled,” Jeff Clune, a University of Wyoming assistant professor whose own work involves studying the limits of machine learning systems, told the MIT Technology Review.

RESPONSIBLE AI DEVELOPMENT

AI is actually more pervasive now than most people think, and as computer systems have become more advanced, the use of machine learning algorithms has become more common. The problem is that the same smart technology can be used to undermine these systems.

“Computer security is definitely moving toward machine learning,” Google Brain researcher Ian Goodfellow told the MIT Technology Review. “The bad guys will be using machine learning to automate their attacks, and we will be using machine learning to defend.”

Training AI to fight malicious AI is the best way to prepare for these attacks, but that’s easier said than done. “Adversarial machine learning is more difficult to study than conventional machine learning,” explained Goodfellow. “It’s hard to tell if your attack is strong or if your defense is actually weak.”

The unpredictability of AI is one of the reasons some, including serial entrepreneur Elon Musk, are concerned that the tech may prove malicious in the future. They suggest that AI development be carefully monitored and regulated, but ultimately, it’s the people behind these systems and not the systems themselves that present the true threat.

In an effort to get ahead of the problem, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has created guidelines for ethical AI, and groups like the Partnership on AI have also set up standards. Kaggle’s contest could illuminate new AI vulnerabilities that must be accounted for in future regulations, and by continuing to approach AI development cautiously, we can do more to ensure that the tech isn’t used for nefarious means in the future.

Reflections on Ego

Reflections on Ego

There is no doubt that the biggest obstacle to achieving success in organizations is ego. All the training and coaching in the world will be rendered ineffective when ego gets in the way. Ego is the Enemy, presents us with a thorough discussion of ego – what it means and how it can destroy lives and careers.

Some thought-provoking excerpts from this must-read book:

  • “Ego inhibits true success by preventing a direct and honest connection to the world around us”.
  • “Whatever we seek to do in life, reality soon intrudes on our youthful idealism. This reality comes in many names and forms: incentives, commitments, recognition and politics. In every case, they can quickly redirect us from doing to being. From earning to pretending. Ego aids in that deception every step of the way”.
  • “Greatness comes from humble beginnings; it comes from grunt work. It means you’re the least important person in the room – until you change that with results”.
  • “When you want to do something – something big and important and meaningful – you will be subjected to treatment ranging from indifference to outright sabotage. Count on it. In this scenario, ego is the absolute opposite of what is needed”.
  • “We stay stuck inside our heads instead of participating in the world around us. That’s ego, baby. What successful people due is curb such flights of fancy. They ignore the temptations that might make them feel important or skew their perspective”.
  • “Pride blunts the very instrument we need to own in order to succeed: our mind. Our ability to learn, to adapt, to build relationships, all of this is dulled by pride”.
  • “Who wants to look at themselves and their work and find that it does not measure up? And so here we might bluster our way through. Cover up hard truths with sheer force of personality and drive and passion. Or, we can face our shortcomings honestly and put the time in. We can let this humble us, see clearly where we are talented and where we need to improve and then put in the work to bridge the gap. And we can set upon positive habits that will last a lifetime”.
  • “As success arrives, like it does for a team that has just won a championship, ego begins to toy with our minds and weaken the will that made us win in the first place”.
  • “It takes a special kind of humility to grasp that you know less, even as you know and grasp more and more”.
  • “We start out knowing what is important to us, but once we’ve achieved it, we lose sight of our priorities. Ego sways us, and can ruin us”.
  • “With success, particularly power, comes some of the greatest and most dangerous delusions: entitlement, control and paranoia”.
  • “Ego needs honors in order to be validated. Confidence, on the other hand, is able to wait and focus on the task at hand regardless of external recognition”.
  • “Behind every goal is the drive to be happy and fulfilled – but when egotism takes hold, we lose track of our goal and end up somewhere we never intended”.
  • “You could say that failure always arrives uninvited, but through our ego, far too many of us allow it to stick around”.
  • “Ego, like any drug, might be indulged at first in a misguided attempt to get an edge or to take one off. The problem is how quickly is becomes an end unto itself”.

Don’t let ego get in the way of your success. A good start is to get a copy of Holiday’s book, read it and, even more importantly, apply its lessons.

Top 10 Ways to Invest in Yourself and Why It’s So Powerful

Investing in yourself is one of the best return on investments you can have. Whether it’s investing in learning a new skill, developing yourself personally or professionally, tapping into your creativity or hiring a coach, you need to give to yourself first before you can give to others. It is our responsibility to take the time to develop our gifts and talents, so we can best serve others. Investing in yourself is an example of self-love, you must love yourself before you can expect others to love you.

Why is investing in yourself so powerful?

Investing in yourself, sends a powerful message to yourself and the world. The message is:

The value and potential that I possess, is important enough to me that I’m going to give it the energy, space and time to grow and create results.

When you’re willing to say yes, and take that leap of faith and invest in yourself, the universe will provide you with amazing rewards.

I would like to share some incredible ways that you can invest in yourself – the great news is they don’t all require money.

Top 10 Ways to Invest in Yourself

1. Set goals. Learn how to set personal and business goals for yourself. If you’re not taking the time to set goals it’s like driving in the dark with the headlights turned off. You will not know where you’re going and you will waste precious time. Be sure to also set some time frames in which to meet them. Your goals should be SMART goals -Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely.

2. Honor your intuition. You can show yourself love by trusting your gut and honoring the message that it’s sending. Listening to your intuition, will allow you to make better decisions. Valuing your intuition, by not allowing the thoughts, feelings or statements of others to take away from what you know to be true is very empowering. By paying attention to how you feel, it will help you to make better, smarter and quicker decisions. I know for me personally, if I choose to ignore my gut or intuition when I feel a strong feeling about something, it almost always is a decision or action that I end up regretting. I have learned to always trust my intuition and that is what leads me in my life and business.

3. Invest time in your creativity. Our creativity doesn’t have to diminish as we get older. In fact, it is believed that the peak of creativity in most people is around 30-40 years old. (Lindaur, 1998, Marisiske &Willis, 1998) Creativity can be the catalyst in the manifestation of continual learning and lifelong activity. It allows us to be inspired, have fun and appreciate the beauty in the world.

4. Invest in building your confidence. People who know their value, have something to say and others will listen. You can invest in yourself by developing an understanding of the value that you possess and offer others. Learn to have the courage to speak your truth. The more you love yourself and own the value that you offer, the more confident you will become in sharing it with others.

5. Read educational books. Books or audio books are an awesome resource to build your knowledge and expertise in any area.

6. Attend seminars and workshops to expand your knowledge and skills in your business and/or personal life. This will also give you the opportunity to meet and interact with individuals who are like-minded.

7. Take care of your health. Eat right each day, fueling your body with nutrients. When you focus on eating organic and healthier choices, you will feel better and have more energy. I know that the unhealthy burger or cupcake gives us instant gratification, but if you’re like me, you regret it later, because you feel lousy afterwards. Exercise daily. Do something every day to get moving and get your heart rate up, even, if it’s just walking the dog. Exercise gives you the energy to take on the day with confidence because of how it makes you look and feel. I have dedicated
a whole chapter in my book on health (Chapter 11) because of just how important it is to your success!

8. Choose to be happy. Happiness is a choice. Happy people choose to focus on the positive aspects of life, rather than the negative. They are not held hostage by their circumstances. They look at all the reasons to be grateful. “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”- Abraham Lincoln

9. Work on your bucket list. If you don’t have a bucket list, then it’s time to start one. Your bucket list is meant to be a list of everything you want to achieve, do, see, feel and experience in your life. Your list may be ongoing, but you can start by writing 100 things down. Then each month or so, make sure you’re knocking out at least, one of the items on your list.

10. Invest in a coach. A coach can assist you in putting all of these strategies into action. A coach is your partner in success. It is their job to assist you in creating and implementing your success plan, so you can become the best that you can be.

I can promise this: When you invest in yourself, a world of opportunities will open up for you. And, if you have a business where you sell your services, you must know that no one will invest in you until you invest in yourself first.

Investing in yourself emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially, will allow you to become the best version of yourself. When you are the best version of yourself, you will be an attraction magnet to others!

MEET THE RIGHT AND LEFT BRAIN

The brain is amazing. You’ve heard of right brain vs. left brain. The creative, artsy side versus the mathematical, analytical side.  Well it’s true…and the connections (or lack of) they make between each other impact our emotions, actions and abilities to complete certain tasks. Each person is unique in so called “hemispheric dominance,” however, we still heavily use both sides and neither is better or worse than the other. Let’s take some time to get to know our two sides!

Meet a [Happy] Right Brain

The right hemisphere’s unique focus is simultaneous processing, integration of our body sense, arousal, awareness and understanding of spaces, and social-emotional awareness.

  • Our right brain allows us to wee out of our left eyes and use our limbs on our left side.
  • When it comes to language, the right side helps with intonation, patterns, gestures and non-verbal communication. This is where we pick up social cues and our ability to understand others.
  • For math, the right side allows us to conceptualize numerical concepts, special reasoning and geometry.
  • The right side is where we find our body awareness, social and emotional awareness and emotional self-regulation.
  • Attention is handled by both sides of the brain. However, the right side focuses on extra-personal space, information procession requiring peripheral vision and spatial location. It is also where we find the ability to control how we shift our attention.

Meet an [Unhappy] Right Brain

  • When dysregulation happens, we can look towards the right brain for issues regarding:
  • Impulsivity, distractibility and driven hyperactivity
  • Anxiety (fear), depression (agitated), impatience, shame, aggression, poor comprehension of emotions, loud unmodulated voice, and a lack of empathy
  • Difficulty falling asleep, nightmares, teeth grinding, and restlessness
  • Non-verbal learning disabilities, poor writing or math, lack of intonation in speech, lack of common sense or a sense of humor
  • Poor balance or coordination, motor or vocal tics, and nervous habits

Meet a [Happy] Left Brain

The left hemisphere’s main jobs are sequential processing, analysis of details, complex movements, motivation, analysis over time, linguistic description and concentration.

  • Our left brain controls the right visual field and the motor function of our right side.
  • Left brain areas control analytical and sequential processing and the organization of verbal and written language.
  • The left side helps us with math calculations, sequential logic and arithmetic.
  • As far as emotions, the left side is dominant for conscious verbal awareness, and distinguishing what is linear, logical and fabricated.
  • The left side’s role in attention is goal-orientation, working memory, processing of details, and object identification. It also helps us filter irrelevant factors to sustain our attention.

Meet an [Unhappy] Left Brain

When dysregulation happens, we can look towards the left brain for issues regarding:

  • Poor concentration, lack of motivation, slow response time
  • Anxiety (worry), depression (helpless or hopeless), irritability, low self-esteem, guilt, mood swings, obsessive thoughts, compulsive behaviors
  • Difficulty maintaining sleep, not rested after sleep, sleep walking, bed wetting
  • Poor sequential processing, calculations, logic, or expressive language; auditory and reading processing deficits
  • Seizures and vertigo

As you can see, the left and the right work together constantly to help us complete almost every task. For example, reading a book pulls on the right brain’s job of information processing while the left brain helps us put it in sequential order. Or, even something as simple as walking require our right and left to use both legs, moving then equally and smoothly. We’re also lucky to have significant research allowing us to pinpoint areas of the brain when we’re noticing irregularities and trying to resolve different issues.

The Subconscious Contains Our Unused Potentials and Our Blockages

The subconscious contains within it our unused potentials, as well as the personal blockages that keep us stuck in the various problem areas of our life. I sometimes refer to these as our light and dark shadows. The word shadow is a Jungian term and refers to those parts of us that are unconscious. Being unconscious, we do not see them, but we often see their effects in our life, that is we don’t see what causes the shadow, but we see the effect.

Each of us has both a light and dark shadow, and each needs to be examined so that energy captured there can be released.

Dark Shadow: That which is holding us back. Repressed emotions, grief, hurts, inner wounds; all these are part of our dark shadow. So are dysfunctional beliefs. For example, a belief such as, “If there is a flu around I’ll catch it!” which, as you now understand, would attract the flu to you, could be called part of our dark shadow, especially if we are unaware of how this belief operates in our life. Any part of us that makes us unbalanced and that we are unaware of can be called part of our dark shadow. The dark shadow is that part of us which is self-defeating, holding us back, often absorbing vast amounts of energy, leaving us feeling depleted, anxious, frustrated, and at the mercy of forces that we ourselves have set in motion. The Mind Power student is keenly interested in both his light and dark shadows. They understand better than anyone what it means to ignore these shadow parts of their being. What is in our dark shadow is limiting us, so we do the inner work necessary to reveal these parts to us. Once revealed, we can design strategies to change those aspects of ourselves which are holding us back.

Now there is also the collective unconscious, which does not develop but is inherited. It consists of pre-existent forms, the archetypes. The collective unconscious contains both dark and light shadows, and as such they are common to all of us. They reside as archetypal messages resonating in the human unconscious matrix and so find their way into all of us. One such dark shadow archetypal message is the belief, “I’m not good enough.” This can be held as a general belief, “I’m not a good enough person” or something more specific, “I’m not a good parent/spouse/artist/mediator/entrepreneur/teacher, etc. When you find yourself thinking this, which you sometimes will, you can counteract the thought by first suspecting that it does not belong to you but rather to the collective. This works to make it non-personal, giving you the opportunity of nullifying it. It is our duty to overcome and heal the wound of “I’m not good enough” upon every occasion that it arises. By doing so we help not just ourselves but also the collective. We are helping our species when we refuse to accept shame. Paradoxically, the act of eliminating shame is easier when we do it for the sake of others than when we do it just for ourselves. Doing this is not a selfish act; it is heroic. Shame is the original sin. What is not claimed and owned by the inner will manifest in the outer. The dark shadow must be faced and addressed or it will cause all kinds of problems in your life.

Light Shadow: Our potentials and those parts of us that have not been explored and brought to fruition in our lives. Special gifts and talents that lie underdeveloped, our art, our hidden desires, our unused and unexplored abilities, all these form part of our light shadow. Because we are a fragment, a holographic piece of the overall design of the universe, everything that is possible and good and excellent is potentially part of our light shadow. While theoretically true, practically speaking, some things are more available to us than others. Not all the talents and gifts within the universe are ours to use, at least not in this particular lifetime. Some are more difficult to access, while others are waiting just below the surface, like a seed in a dried out river bed awaiting the rains to sprout and grow. Our light shadow can be discovered by following our bliss, our natural talents, our joys, our creativity. Trust what turns you on the most and follow it wherever it leads you.

The emergence of both light and dark shadow is always a positive event in our lives. It shows we are connected and in touch with the hidden parts of ourselves. When we awaken to these possibilities of transformation within ourselves, almost anything becomes possible.

How to come into relationship with your subconscious:

You come into relationship with your subconscious by desiring contact. You educate the conscious mind to the existence of the subconscious’s functions and potential through daily mediations. Until you are aware of its existence, and not just in an intellectual way, you cannot work with the subconscious effectively. Contemplate daily the existence of this second mind. Think about the fact that the subconscious is part of the etheric web of all reality. Think about the potentials of imprinting into it, how it works, etc. Affirm to yourself daily, “My subconscious mind is my partner in success.” This is a very powerful affirmation and has a threefold effect. First, by affirming “my subconscious mind,” you are educating the conscious mind to the existence of this second mind. Secondly, by affirming “my partner,” you are reminding the conscious mind of the possibilities and advantages of working with the subconscious. And thirdly, it is your partner “in success.” By affirming this you are building up a success vibration; you are weaving success into your etheric matrix. Make this a regular affirmation.

Finally, dialogue with your subconscious. Praise it and let it know how appreciative you are of its power and ability to create and interact with the etheric web. Tell it what you want to create and what imprints you are presently working with. Let it know that you are working diligently to have a functioning relationship established. Get to know this part of yourself as a separate and neglected component that is being welcomed back into the human matrix. By doing all of the above you will find that you will enter into “relationship” with your subconscious, and when you do, a whole new level of working with it reveals itself to you.

This blog’s takeaway:  Once we reveal our Light & Dark shadows, anything becomes possible.

Ray Kurzweil: There’s a Blueprint for the Master Algorithm in Our Brains

Ray Kurzweil: There’s a Blueprint for the Master Algorithm in Our Brains

IN BRIEF

Ray Kurzweil, Google’s chief engineer, is a famous futurist who’s always banked on the coming of the singularity — when artificial intelligence overcomes human intelligence. For that to happen, however, we need to figure out the master algorithm.

Today’s artificial intelligence (AI) systems are, no doubt, considerably advanced. There are now intelligent machine learning algorithms capable of driving vehicles, assisting doctors, or even engaging in art and in almost-human conversation. However, despite AI programmed as artificial deep neural networks, these are still far from actually mimickingwhat the human brain is capable of.

Renowned futurist and Google engineer Ray Kurzweil thinks that the key to human-level AI is a master algorithm, and he believes that the brain holds a blueprint to this. The famous inventor and thinker, known for his mostly accurate predictions about future technologies, said that the brain’s neocortex — that part of the brain that’s responsible for intelligent behavior — consists of roughly 300 million modules that recognize patterns. These modules are self-organized into hierarchies that turn simple patterns into complex concepts.

Despite neuroscience advancing by leaps and bounds over the years, we still haven’t quite figured out how the neocortex works. Kurzweil argued that these multiple modules “all have the same algorithm,” he said in the video by the Singularity University posted above. “The mathematics of thinking, I think, is being understood,” Kurzweil added, “but I would not claim that we understand it fully. But we’re getting more and more hints as we learn more and more about the human brain.”

Perhaps soon enough, we’ll figure out that master algorithm and understand our brains better. Then we’ll either be able to make better AI — or AI that’s better than us. It’s worth finding out.

Our Success Helps Many; Our Failure Helps No One

It is a revolutionary idea and one that dramatically changes our life when we embrace it. Imagine believing that our success actually helps many people. When we believe this, it totally changes the way we think about success. Suddenly our success becomes a way by which we can help people, and we should believe this because when you closely scrutinize this concept it becomes obvious that this is true.

But don’t just blindly accept this idea from me, think about it yourself and make your own decision. Does your success help other people? Think about whom else might benefit if you became tremendously successful?

It would obviously help you, your family, and those working directly with you, but there are many more individuals than these who would benefit. Success always creates waves of opportunities in its wake, so there would undoubtedly be a spillover effect for numerous people, many more than we might originally suspect. And these individuals would create even more benefits in their personal circles. This is one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated benefits of success; it flows freely and copiously in many different ways once it is in motion. Success is a very positive force for good and should always be acknowledged in this way.

Now let’s think about failure; does anyone really benefit from our failure? Maybe we might learn some personal life lessons during the process but what good does it create for others? Probably none. So from this perspective, we realize, it is our moral and social responsibility to be as successful as we can. Now we can desire success not just for the obvious benefits it will bring to ourselves but for the good it will create for others. It is never selfish to succeed; it is a generous, creative act, which benefits many. This is why our success is so important.

Now take this radical new insight about success and imprint it into your subconscious so that it can take root within and inspire you daily. When our desire for success becomes an act of service, a creative way of helping others, we are inspired to be our best. This will spur us on to great things and nothing will stand in our way.

This blog’s takeaway:  It is our moral and social responsibility to be as successful as we can!
