The Law of

Two men looked out from prison
One saw the mud, the other saw the
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
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
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
To digress a
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
1. All healing takes place
2. All healing begins from the top down, and moves from inside
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
