Future Visions, Thoughts Are Things

February 5, 2010

By Michael Griffin

How is your future vision? How well can you see the things that are to happen in your life? Does that sound like a crazy idea?

Napoleon Hill, who was perhaps the greatest success writer of the 20Th century had this to say:

Thoughts are things.

Wayne Dyer, who wrote many success books, put it this way:

You will see it when you believe it.

Wallace Wattles, who wrote “The Science of Getting Rich,” the book behind the movie “The Secret” put it like this:

By thought, the thing you want is brought to you; by action you receive it.

When the mind is open and expecting a thing held in vision it finds new connections and notices things and ideas related to the thing. If you allow your mind to put these ideas and observations together, it will begin to suggest things for you to do. Things that may or may not seem related to the vision. But these things, when integrated this way, will begin to form and bring to you the object of your future vision.

If you want anything — you must first think it. How can we think of the good things we want if our mind is polluted with all the negativity around. Are you a news junkie? Most of what is in the news and on the news channels is what other people want you to think about something that has happened. You don’t need that to overshadow your life. You need to form clear ideas and visions without the interpretation of others. When you create a future vision you must care for it and nurture it while you are bringing it about by holding the vision.

Some have described how this process works using quantum physics. Others relate it to an intelligence in the universe: that the universe contains a thinking substance that produces in kind after the pure thought held in it. Wallace Wattles, quoted above, is one of those who put forth this theory. I don’t think these two theories exclude each other so just take the one that is easiest on your head and begin to play with future vision.

Hold the vision of what you want in your mind with as pure a thought as you can. Practice this morning and night and write the ideas that spin off, write down the plans that come to mind — then act on these things.

Your vision creates the result, your actions bring it into your hands. This is what Wattles is saying.

Whether you have read “The Science of Getting Rich” or not you’ll want to experience it in a new way. You’ll want to experience it as delivered and interpeted by Bob Proctor with some help from Michael Beckwith and Jack Canfield. You will learn to use The Science of Getting Rich as your own secret weapon and as your key to success and creation.

Life is What Happens to You When You Are Busy Making Other Plans – What Are Your Keys to Success?

August 13, 2009

 By Michael Griffin

Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. – John Lennon

What is your life philosophy? What methods do you use as a compass to guide you to success and the things you want in life even when things aren’t going the way that you think they should? The law of attraction tells us to focus and visualize – this causes idea creation and we take action – but what happens then? What if it doesn’t happen just the way you saw it, does that make it a failure?

Submitted for your consideration are what could have been three failures:

  • David McConnell was selling books door to door in 1886, when the business wasn’t so good he started giving perfume out as bonuses to women to get them to buy his books. Finally the perfume was more popular than his books and so he started a company that is known today as Avon.
  • William Wrigley Jr. started a Chicago based company in 1892 selling soap and baking powder. To encourage people to buy his products he began offering chewing gum as a bonus. As with David McConnell – soon Wrigley’s bonus became more popular than the product he was trying to sell. Wrigley changed his company to sell chewing gum and, as they say, the rest is history.
  • Henry Ford had several false starts on his way to being the mega auto maker. In 1901 he started the Henry Ford Company with some partners and Ford served in the capacity as chief engineer. When a consultant was brought in that Ford disagreed with Ford left. The company was renamed Cadillac Automobile Company and, of course, Ford went down the street with new investors and started a new Ford Motor Company where he maintained more control.

The outcome wasn’t what was expected. Are they failures? The bottom line here is that life doesn’t always go the way you suppose or plan using your best vision board and law of attraction secrets – or any other planning method you have.

President Eisenhower said of his planning for D-Day, “The plan is nothing, planning is everything.”

What’s the problem? Go with it… It is still the law of attraction in operation.

Dale Carnegie said, “When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.”

These guys made lemonade and you can do the same. Look at the results you are getting and figure out what it means. the books weren’t working but perfume was; soap powder didn’t work but the gum did; Henry Ford started two major car companies, one by mistake, because he started a company without the control that he wanted to have.

How do you develop the mind set to see these kinds of possibilities? What are your keys to success?

There was a book written over 100 years ago called “The Science of Getting Rich” that lays out a philosophy and a science. Let me tell you more about it at: http://www.TheRealMikeGriffin.com/sgr.

If You Would Be Rich

If You Would Be Rich
If you would be rich, write down the things you want to obtain and write them as you would if you already had them. Try it now, write down the top ten things you want as if it were a year from now and you already have them – activate the law of attraction. You might say, I enjoy living in my new home with the woman or man of my dreams. It feels great having steady income from my businesses and $100,000 cash in the bank or maybe its $1,000,000 in the bank. Whatever your goals are write them down. Try to come up with ten things that really excite you. Got the ten goals? Now pick one that would really make your world come alive. We intend for you to achieve all of your goals but we will call this one your definite major purpose in life. Writing your goals in this way, as if you had already attained them activates the law of attraction. The things will start moving toward you as you move toward them. To supercharge the law of attraction process review and visualize your goals daily; stop an extra moment on your definite major purpose – this goal will activate all of the others. Some people also find it helps the creative visualization process to put pictures on a vision board that represent the goals. It’s a good thing to do but don’t get hung up on it. Look at your list and see yourself in that place feeling the joy that you would feel, the gratitude that you would feel. Think of it as a little time-travel experiment. If your vision is not perfect do it anyway it will get better. Just review and visualize at least once a day. In consistency lies the power! If you would be rich then complete this little exercise and you are in the top 3 percent of all Americans. The top 3 percent are the ones who write their goals and activate the law of attraction. The top 3 percent are the big achievers in life – welcome to the club. Here is a free video for you: How To Get Rich! Give this thing a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
