Getting to the moon, or Mars these days because it’s on our minds, always begins with what looks like a straight trajectory. The reality is that there are thousands of micro-adjustments along the way that need to occur in order to get there.
Aim for your goal and assume it will be a straight line ensures you will be disappointed and miss. But there’s another tactic that you need to wrap your mind around first and it’s actually something you’re already doing but don’t even know it.
An uncommon tactic is not to aim exactly and in a perfectly straight line for that goal.
…always move in angles and always move in micro steps upward.
This defies what and how we have learned and the basics of what school teaches. Our human logic is when most people believe if they want to “make some money” they should try and “make some money”. Harder work yields more success is the thinking.
One of the strange facts about deciding to aim directly and go only for money is rarely when you make any money. This is because money takes energy and gives no value but giving and sharing value derives from helping people.
Push against something such as money and it seems to disappear. Relax around this energy and you are able to achieve more with less.
It’s somewhat like when you aim to “just make money” you’re blinded by the money and suddenly you forget the most important thing – helping people by adding value. Service is the actual energy, which is somewhat like the secret sauce and then it becomes the fuel behind many great shifts.
My dad taught me that if I felt bad, mad, sad, worried or shy (which I was incredibly so). He wants me to go out and help someone. To go and teach, feed, hug, or make someone laugh and that would bring what I needed.
He didn’t exactly teach me that it would result in dollars but having helped so many folks get their next step, grow their business or income, heal their body or life I DISCOVERED that everywhere I looked I found occurrences of the same thing. The world was full of indirect discoveries.
Then I put it all together that my favorite past time of hanging out in nature was the most elegant demonstration of achieving a goal!
Nature never moves in straight lines but basic human logic does. Nature creates perfect order from chaos. Human logic creates chaos from order. Nature was an indirect thinker, it always moved in angles and it was very good at it.
Miracles move to the tune of the force of nature, the purity of service and are purely natural but we look at miracles as something impossible, infrequent and a mere coincidence.
Start applying the zig and zag. Don’t look at the straight line toward the goal and you’re more in line with nature. Miracles are more easily possible this way.
If you’re standing at a mountain top and trying to find your way once you get down look for the straight lines, because it’s human made. That’s a giant difference I want you to consider.
Aim and apply an indirect approach because there’s wind, rain, bumps and hurdles that will result in something wonderful … so long as you keep going.
For the past several years I’m selected as the top entrepreneur in my area and it’s where I get to help people the most and be of the greatest value and service that I believe makes the difference.
How did my life and business go from me nearly dying to the place where it’s at today?
It took new eyes, a new perspective and a polar shift from direct to indirect. You see I had helped many companies get their golden prize yet they always wanted the direct approach and that always yielded pain and struggle.
Here’s a list that you can use to start applying in your own life and business (no matter what type or size it is) today. As you might imagine, it’s not typical but very valuable.
Here’s the three things:
- The Self Illusion
In business there’s one enemy you will come up against, again and again. This enemy will make you question yourself and doubt your every move. It’s like a dark force that has you by the heels. A monster that’s breathing down your neck.
This enemy is you.
Society has phrases like “Be yourself”. “Stick to your roots”. “Don’t forget where you came from”. Have you ever stopped to think about who you really are? Where is this thing you call the self? The self doesn’t exist, it’s merely you clinging to an identity built up of stories about the past.
It’s been my observation that the only way to achieve success is to become the person who deserves it. When we become this new person we are no longer ourselves. You see, this is the issue with our understanding. We believe we are something when we aren’t anything.
To succeed in business you have to change who you are. You have to constantly evolve. This is impossible when you cling to your identity and believe you are the way you are. You have to reimagine and disintegrate your self image.
Instead of answering the question “Who am I?” Try answering the question “Who do I want to be so that I can have what I want’. Decide and take action on who you need to be to be successful and then grow into that new character. All the worlds a stage and we are merely actors.
2. The Mirror
People don’t have business problems, they have energy problems that show up in their life, health, relationships and then in their income or business.
Most people try to start a business by focusing on logical business things like their website, sales skills, marketing etc. When they experience a business problem they think it’s a business problem and they attempt to solve it by focusing on the same things. This doesn’t work.
Your truest self is the mirror in your income and your business. If you’re heaving, your energy is heaving. If your people are lagging, you are the laggard and you have to own it rather than just say I work so much, so hard etc. Clean up your energy and the mirror reflects rewards that are untold.
Let me give you some examples:
Most people believe that nobody will pay for their skills and they won’t get customers. They don’t believe in investing in themselves so how can they believe others will invest in them? They’re seeing a mirrored image of their own belief. Or if you do invest in yourself and have the belief that no one will ever pay you what you invest then…you’re right.
We see this with sales people too. If they struggle to get people to make a decision and they keep getting “let me think about it”. They’re likely “thinking about it” when they’re buying themselves. People sell the way they buy and buy the way they sell.
90% of the time the problem in your business is coming from your own personal energetics and then mindset. Clean it up there and it vanishes. When you’re starting your own business you must be aware of the mirror and gain the tools to clean it up regularly (click HERE).
3. Patterns Of Existence
You’re not the highest version of yourself which you can imagine, you’re the lowest version of yourself which you have allowed yourself to identify with and to accept.
Most people have hopes and dreams but they rarely achieve them. They write down things they want, they say daily prayers, take a stab at a few things, say mantras, journal but nothing ever comes of it. People always dip to the lowest vibration of themselves which they can accept, not the highest vibration of themselves which they can imagine. The imagination muscle is weak or non-existent and accepting things they way they are muscle is much to big… somewhat like a weight-lifter who has tiny legs but huge arms and abs.
Change comes from lifting your standards not your dreams. You can binge watch tv series and get sucked into that exact type energy and then bring it into your life. TV is an escape and leaves the dreams on the back-burner for later. But sure thing that most people will fight like heck to not breach their standards or do something they don’t know or understand. This pattern presents itself in everybody.
Here’s a common example:
If you want to observe somebody’s pattern of existence, look at their bank account. Most people have two numbers “Desired balance” and “Panic balance”. They want to have more money in their bank account but the force of desire is nowhere near strong enough to make them do something about it.
Then there’s the “Panic balance”. The number that somebody panics when their balance falls below it. Sad thing is that most people live only to be just beyond the panic balance and then get cranking and take massive action or work tirelessly until they’re back in the safe zone.
These two numbers present a person’s financial dreams and standards. This is the habit of energetic existence that appears everywhere in a person’s life, not just their bank account.
When you want to change your life or business try to map your dreams and standards and understand where they are. Find the lowest version of yourself you’re willing to tolerate and then work on lifting that standard to where you truly want to be. When you do this you’ll light a fire within you like nothing else. You will be a hero to many more by serving those with the lessons you’ve learned and your success will be inevitable.
