The Law of Success
By Jim Lynn, © 2014

Two men looked out from prison bars...
      One saw the mud, the other saw the stars.

The above prose is so very human, don't you think?  The question for us is WHY? Why is it only one of the men saw the stars? Once you know the answer to that question, you will be well on your way to success.

Hardly a day goes by that I am not asked a question about my business. People want to know how to duplicate what I have done to become successful in network marketing. "How is it that your business is so successful," they ask? Or, "How did you manage to build such a large downline?

Of course, there are marketing tools and strategies I use to introduce people to the business, and products. In fact, distributors are expecting this kind of information when they come to me with their questions. Truth is, however, marketing tools and strategies are all incidental to the success quotient they are seeking. Bells and whistles won't make or break anyone.

The big answer they seek, however, is so downright simple, it leaves some people dumbfounded, yet for others it is a revelation of a lifetime. Are you ready?

The answer lies within!

Success or failure is determined by how our subconscious mind functions. No, this is not a gimmick. I am telling you one of life's most profound truths. Why is it profound? Because once you set your mind in motion, you also set universal laws into motion which never fail.

To digress a moment...

Medical doctors and researchers are beginning to understand the
human body from a different perspective. As more and more drugs fall short of expectations, a new awareness is emerging of the human body's innate ability to heal itself. The more observation is made, the more researchers are convinced of two things;

1. All healing takes place from within.
2. All healing begins from the top down, and moves from inside to outside.

It is the healing that must occur at the top (from the head or mind) first, that is so revealing. However to effect healing, there is still one other element that must be present, a willingness for CHANGE to take place.

Change is a nasty word for many people. Many of us simply rebel at the thought. Yet, life itself is about change. We are not the same person we were 20 years ago...No, not even one year ago. We have grown new hair, nails, liver cells, eye cells, lung tissue, skin, and well, you get my point. We are in a state of change all of our life.

Just as our body changes, so too do our thoughts. If we allow our heart to be continually filled with thoughts of worry, hatred, selfishness, greed, lust, fear and the like, a negative energy will quickly be produced within the mind. This negative energy then manifests itself physically in the body. Chronic ulcers, low-back pain, upset stomach, constipation, skin rash, high blood pressure and the like are tell-tale signs of a heart and mind in need of change. Left unattended, these chronic symptoms can lead to other more severe and life-threatening diseases.

Negative energy charged feelings profoundly impact our outlook, and thus our overall effectiveness in all aspects of human endeavor. The bottom line is that unless hatred can be replaced with forgiveness, worry with peace, greed with contentment, and so forth, one's life will be troubled and short.

Our thoughts and attitudes must undergo cleansing, to make them clean and fresh, if we want to change our body (rid it of disease). Get rid of the old, take on the new. Isn't this what renovation is all about?

Simply said, our body cannot govern itself without our mind directing it. It is the mind that dictates how our body will respond. To heal the body, develop new thoughts and attitude. As Dr. Brenard Jensen, M.D. said, "What you put your mind on grows."

What has any of this to do with achieving success? Simply that as the mind controls the body to remain healthy or to become sick, so also does it predetermine the outcome for achieving success or failure. It isn't what we do, but what we fail to do that keeps us from success.

The mind is the doorway to the spiritual realm, the realm in which God lives and works. It is through the mind that we receive spiritual insights which mingle with our own. It is also the place where we program ourselves for success or failure.

It's amazing isn't it? I mean the more high-tech we become, the more insight we receive, the more knowledge we learn, the more evident it becomes that the answers we all seek boil down to the most simplistic of ideas. Consider this one;

"For as he thinketh within himself, so is he..."
                                      - Proverbs 23:7(ASV)

If you want to become successful, begin thinking and acting as though you already are! Foolish? No, not really. You  see, the mind cannot differentiate between fiction and reality. It only acts on what it perceives to be reality.

What do you believe about yourself, life, and the universe? There is only one way to cleanse the mind, to prepare for success. That way is through your belief...a thought in your mind which causes the power of your subconscious mind to be distributed into all phases of your life. According to your faith, it is done unto you as you believe. This is a law of life, a truth which never fails.

Did you know you were born to be successful. You are created as a child of God, created in His likeness, His image. Powerful angels serve you night and day. The power of the universe is at your beckoning call. Everything about you screams to be successful...So what happened?

I call it stinkin thinkin. Somewhere along the pathway of life, someone called you a failure and you believed it. Someone said you can't do that, and you didn't. But it's a lie. It's a lie that you chose to believe that has kept you from realizing what your soul hungers for. How much better would it have been had you received positive affirmations to excel, to achieve the heights of success?

If you want your business to be successful, the thought of it must be so clear and strong that it seeps into your subconscious mind. Once that happens, nothing can stop you. You will reach your goal because the subconscious mind sets the whole universe into motion to bring about the results you desire. If these things do not begin to happen, your subconscious has yet to receive your belief. Whatever your mind believes is what you receive...It's a spiritual law everyone keeps. Consider;

"I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain,'Go, throw
yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes
that what he says will happen, it will be done for him."
                                     - Mark 11:23 (NIV)

From the moment I began my business with Young Living Essential Oils, Inc., I never questioned whether my business would become successful. It was a foregone conclusion that it would be massively successful already in my mind.

Oh sure, the bells and whistles all go to make us look good. But really, what would you rather have, a bunch of gadgetry or the supreme knowledge of knowing you have the powers of the universe empowering you to succeed?

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Yesterday is over, You cannot change it...so forget it and move on. Today is all that counts. Begin where you are at this very moment to decide you want to make positive changes in your life. Realize that what you sow you reap, and that it doesn't take any more effort to sow good thoughts than it does bad.

It won't happen over night, but when it does, you will begin to see changes come in your life. People will be attracted to you. Your words will become powerful. Your message will open hearts. And you will discover that the more you give of yourself to others, the more will come to you. This is how the Law of Success works.

Life isn't circumstance...and contrary to what you heard on the PBS Channel, your Uncle didn't walk out of a slim bog a million years ago. That kind of stinkin thinkin is part of the problem, not the solution. Unlike the animal kingdom which is guided by instinct, mankind is guided by his own free will, infinite intelligence, perfection and truth. Infinite riches are all around you when you open the eye of your mind and behold the treasure house within.
