Getting to Now -Your Secret to Success

Have you ever thought about how or perhaps some people become successful while others don’t. Do you think they are smarter?  Have better connections?  Right place, right time?  Are they just lucky?

Do I need to work harder? (big in our culture, where if you are not where you think you should be, it’s likely you’re dogging it, could be working harder!  Right?)

Getting to Now Your Secret to Success

The real question that underlies all of this is… Why not me?

Let’s see if we can tie a bit of eastern philosophy and western philosophy.  I’ll let Deepak Chopra speak for the Eastern.  In his book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak talks about Law #4 The Law of Least Effort.

The Law of Least Effort states that… “Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease.  Grass doesn’t try to grow, it just grows.  Fish don’t try to swim, they just swim.  Birds don’t try to fly, they fly.  This is their intrinsic nature.  And it is human nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form, easily and effortlessly.”

What is commonly called a “miracle” is actually an expression of the Law of Least Effort.  Since it is the ego that consumes the greatest amount of energy, we need to free that energy up.

Of the three components to the Law of Least Effort, I will speak of the first one only.

Acceptance- Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur.  This means knowing this moment IS as it should be.  And when you struggle against this moment, you are in fact, struggling against the entire universe. (Good luck with that!)  “Accept things as they are.”

For our Western part, I turn to Gary Emery, Ph.D. and is the director for the Los Angeles center of Cognative Psychology.  In his book, “The Positive Force, Overcoming Your Resistance to Success”, He speaks directly to the ego and it’s wanting to have and create drama where there is none, a major block to finding success.

I want to quote Dr. Emery when he speaks to battling reality… “Rather than battle reality to exhaustion quickly surrender to what is.  Refuse to go over the negative details, refuse to protest, silently or vocally, against the way life is at the moment.”

“The quicker you’re able to resign yourself to the reality of the present moment, the greater your awareness and the greater your ability to see the next opportunity.”  

and “When your ego is 90% out of the picture, you are assured a 90% chance of getting what you want.”

Both men, are clearly talking about the same thing.  Remove the ego, accept what is now and success will flow from you acceptance of this moment.

Mindset makes all the difference.   I would encourage you to read both books and draw your own conclusions!
