424: Re-Writing the Script to Success

The following is self-corrective and commitment statements made in relation to the previous blog. The point of this is to decide who I am the next time a moment comes up where I use my past against me, or where I'm using positive energy to direct me - to decide for ME what it means to be/live/express success.

When and as I see myself expecting things to just move, magically, and in an instant, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize and understand that this expectation exist within a definition I’ve given to the word success, and that it does not in fact work that way in physical reality. I commit myself to practice daily application as consistency, discipline, and self-movement that will accumulate a habit, or change, or skill that will support in living the word success in my life.

When and as I see myself existing within hope, as in hoping my life is successful, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize, and understand that hope has no basis in reality as it takes actual physical movement, action, and direction to accumulate change, or growth, and that that will all be within my own responsibility. And so I commit myself to stop waiting in hope, and instead take an active role in creating success in my life through physical action, and daily commitments to doing what is needed to be done in order to manifest success in my life.

When and as I see myself moving from a starting point of positive energy, in relation to creating success in my life, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize, and understand the positive energy is what I use to motivate me, and that all energy eventually stops as the energy runs out, and when the energy stops, so do I. And so I commit myself to use ME, as directive principle, as the starting point, and motivate as self-movement to move me in creating success in my life, and thus exist within a self-sustaining ability to create success

When and as I see myself defining success within only as money, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize, and understand that to define success to be only within having/obtaining money, is to limit what the actual definition and ability to be lived actually is and so I commit myself to expand my definition of success to be more than just money, and thus expand my ability to live success within/as my life

When and as I see myself defining the word success to be something outside/separate from me here, as something that must happen TO me, something that must come TO me, and that I must be luck to GET it, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize and understand that success is self-created and thus it is within my power, ability and ultimately my responsibility to create it within my life, and so further I commit myself to stop waiting and start creating

When and as I see myself defining lifestyles as athletes, movie stars, and singers as having a successful, and within this think it was so easy for them to attain, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize, and understand that through this I am accepting an idea again that success comes to those with luck, and without effort, and that one does not have to do much to become successful – and so I commit myself to stop looking at perhaps the unrealistic manifestation of success in this world, and rather define it for myself, and create it for myself, through effort, daily commitment, discipline as directive principle of me

When and as I see myself recalling past memories of attempts to become successful in my life, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize, and understand that in using past memories to define who I am now, I am only then existing in the past, and not allowing myself to get PAST it, and rather bring myself to the present, as self-directive principle, to decide for myself what I am able and capable of doing. And so I commit myself to not use my past against me in terms of creating success, and not to participate in thoughts of ‘it didn’t work then, it wont work now’ and rather I commit myself to live the statement, “if there is a will, there is a way’

When and as I see myself projecting myself into the future of where I would like to be in terms of creating a successful business, and then compare myself to where I am now, I stop and I breathe. I see, realize, and understand how this future projection and comparison only sabotage me and who I am in the present, and distracts me from seeing what needs to be done TODAY, and what I can do NOW to keep walking the process of redefining the word success, and how I am able to live it in my day to day life

423: When the Energy Runs Out

Continuing with opening the word Success - how I've defined it and lived it throughout my life.

I have a memory in my life, in my early twenties, where I become quite obsessed with the idea of making money. I was full of desire, and wanted an escape from my life, and I thought if I invested a lot of money in this specific course, I would be able to do just that. I spent one weekend at a seminar, and over $1000 on material, and a few weeks to follow of research for something that did not play out as I expected.

The desire to succeed, which was really the desire for more money/financial freedom was the motivation, though I did not at that stage understand what it actually takes to create something – I simply just wanted results NOW.

After not getting what I was expecting, thinking if I just threw enough money, and had certain material, things would just work out for me – though of course that is now how it works, and I simply gave up. The energy as the desire depleted and I was left feeling like a failure. I was quite sure ‘this was it’ and ‘it could work’, though I didn’t consider the space and time it would take to create – the consistency in my daily application, my commitment and discipline to walk the point I was walking. I just got caught up in the hype and when that ran out, there was nothing left to move myself.

So that is the point from yesterdays blog, that I can see existing in a past memory. Where I never really understood, or even learned, what it means to create something in this world. We live in a physical space time reality, where through constant, and slow but steady accumulation, things can grow, and change, and be built. It doesn’t happen over night – that is the belief in luck that actually has no real effect.

The cause that create an effective is through effective self-movement, and self-direction. To really commit to something and to work with that something everyday, finding practical, livable solutions to be implemented in this real world that actually creates or brings things into manifestation.

So I was stuck in the illusion that things happen over night, if you just think positively about something, or you wish hard enough, or you were hopeful and somehow open to things happening, then it would – not realizing I would have to be the cause to create an effect as the responsibility for bringing something into being.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define the word to success within the idea/belief that success just happens, that it can happen in one moment, in an instant, and not consider the real time, physical application required to develop, or grow, change, or build something in this world.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define the word success to exist within a positive energy charge as hope, wherein you should just hope for success, and it will somehow magically come to you, without realizing you must create it yourself and what it actually entails to create success

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to think and believe that if I such get hyped up enough, and spend enough money, then I will be successful and that is all it takes

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to limit my ability to live the word success through attaching a positive energy to it, wherein I will move from/as a starting point of desire for success, as money, and use that to motivate and move me – without realizing that once the energy stops, so do I and so the consequences of a starting point of energy

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define the word success as money – and limit it’s existence and how I am able to live it in my day to day life

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define the word success as something the one must attain, and find in this world, and that mostly it happens to lucky people, not seeing or realizing the effort it takes to create in this world, and that it in fact starts from/as myself - within and as myself as who I am and thus how I live

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to expect success to manifest in my life without any of my own effort or commitment to moving myself daily within the actions that will produce a successful result, and instead rather see it as happening on it’s own, or by some other, greater force or will outside of myself

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in the images seen throughout my life that show a life of luxury of athletes, and movie stars, and singers and think it was so easy for them to attain such wealth, and so think and believe it can be that easy for me - and to then even further define success to be those images of big houses, and glamorous lifestyles and use that as my desire to be successful

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to limit the word success to be that of a picture and image only - to believe it exists as only that, as it's only nature, instead of creating my own definition of success that is not limited to idea of how one life is lived, but how it can be lived for all equally, and also sustainable  - aka - for real

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have an expectation on HOW success can and will manifest in my life, instead of realizing that how I currently define it determines how I live it, and so it’s absolutely up to me, as my responsibility, how success manifest in my life and that physical reality supports one to see when one's definition, and so expectation, is not valid or real as the reactions one with have towards how things turn out and so the opportunity to then CHANGE the definition as the livable application of success to be practical

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to stay stuck in past memories of attempts to create success in my life and see/remember them not working out, and to from within this, use it as a reason to keep me from moving myself forward now – wherein I will think and believe ‘It didn’t work then, it wont work now’

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define my current situation on who I’ve been in the past, and use that as a reason to not push myself and direct myself towards the solution I see possible as living success

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to get caught in the illusion that only lucky people are successful, and not realize the hard work, commitment, discipline and daily consistency it took for some to create success in their life

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to look ahead as a projection within my mind of where I would like to go, and see myself as so far away through the act of comparison, and allow this to sabotage myself in thinking, “I’ll never make it, I have so much work to do, it’s too far away…” instead of realizing that it’s in my definition of success, lacking the realization of how physical space and time work, that cause/trigger such a reaction in me in the first place, so again seeing, realizing and understanding my responsibility to redefining words in my life as the influence and manipulator of how I live

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to use my past as reason to believe I will never be successful as thinking I did not get the opportunities others did

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that because I failed at creating success in my past, then I am doomed to repeat it forever within my life

I forgive myself hat I have not realized that I am the creator of my life, within full responsibility, and I have the ability to define, and so live and manifest success in my life, as how I see it will best serve me and others as what is best for all – a livable definition of success that serves all equally

422: I Suck at Success!

Success

I’ve never had a relationship to this word. Or well, perhaps I have, the it’s been of one of separation. What do I mean by separation? Success was never a word I could relate to, or one that I ever thought I lived. It seemed so far off – away from who and what and how I am – as if to exist in some other part of reality that I was not a part of.

And now I find myself venturing into a new direction for work and this is a point emerging that exists in conflict. The work/business is that to produce success – not just for myself, but for others as well, yet how can I possibly do that if I’ve never been able to even relate to the word?

So I will here sort out how I’ve defined the word and define it new for myself, one that I can relate to and one that I can practically live, and thus support others to live as well.

Though, let’s go back to the beginning.

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve never been able to relate to the word success, it just didn’t exist in my reality – it was no where in my environment. Success was someone who had a lot of money, or who was really smart, and to me it seemed an awful like a lot of good luck. I didn’t have good luck, nor the fortune, as money, that I associated with the word success.

So success to me was non-existent, it was for a lucky few in the world. Those with rich parents, or a talent people payed a lot of money to see or be entertained by, or even one who was really smart, and could afford to go to a fancy university and really make something of themselves.

To me, success what not in the cards. I suppose I settled on an idea about myself and my life being only mediocre.

What I find most interesting about this definition I had to the word success throughout my life, is that I didn’t really see the process, or effort, one may have to put into actually materializing success in their life. I didn’t consider someone who worked really hard in school to make the grades to get a scholarship to a great university – the discipline, and persistence and constant developing of a particular skill to get to where they wanted to be. I only saw the end result, and often that was enough to use as a comparison to where I was, and seeing it as so far from where I would ever be.

Now though, I realize the basics of physical reality – that things don’t just instantaneously materialize – there is no just thing as instant gratification - not of anything that is real of course. There is space and time, and daily accumulation of particular habits and actions that shape and form and manifest one’s life. So ultimately it’s up to the individual what their life consists of, and whether or not that is successful.

Now I do also realize that some are ‘fortunate’ and are born into a situation where they immediately are successfully, or their process/journey/road to success is not far – they essentially have all they need to fulfill a potential that can create success in their life. That is one aspect of our reality that is unequal and unfair, not all given the same starting point to fulfill their utmost potential – though that is a different topic on a different blog.

Here, what I am saying is that some, depending on their environment, have an easier time to create success in their life. And of course, it depends on how one defines success. How I have and do currently look at it is in the context of work, and of course money. I realize that real success is not dependent upon something outside and separate from me, though I also realize that I’ve separated myself from the word success. And through my idea/definition of the word success, I've built my life.

I’ve given it a positive energy association, matched by images of people smilling with nice cars, and a graduation cap and gown on, living in a big house with what seems to be no concerns in the world. And on the other hand, I’ve created the polarity – the failure – the negative equal to the positive definition. And that is what I’ve defined as who I am. I relate more to the failure than the success. And that is where the conflict came in.

I am standing before a journey to empower myself and others within a business structure that I’ve been preparing for for quite some time, and yet I am conflicted. Conflicted because it is the ultimate definition of what success should be – empowering self and others equally in multiple areas of one’s life, and yet I feel dis-empowered, hopeless, and useless even because despite my understanding of 'how' to move myself to create a business and direct myself within the business to produce results, there is an experience influencing me to give up before I even start.

That is when I realized the words success, failure and my relationship to these words, has had and is still influencing me within my life, and until I sort that out – and give it a new meaning/definition/livable application, I will remain stuck in an idea about myself.

So that is what I would like to do with this and upcoming blogs. Share my process of redefining success.

421: Karma - Leaving a Mark in the World

Karma.


First thing I saw when looking at this word was ‘a mark’. So when you move the letters around, there exists ‘a mark’. And that is also essentially how one can look at the word and it’s definition. Karma is the mark you leave within this world – it’s the wake you leave behind wherever you go. It is how you influence the world around you, it is the mark you leave.

Now growing up, I always saw or defined the word karma as something you get back to you – whether you are good or bad, whatever happens to you, is your karma. It’s like the mark you leave in this world comes right back at you. Another way I’ve heard it said is, ‘what comes around, goes around’.

And now what's interesting about this is how, growing up, this word was always placed in the context of spite. Like ‘they will get what’s coming to them” or “karma’s a bitch”. Lol – always based within a reaction towards someone. Like if you disliked how a person behaved, or you felt personally attacked by someone, or just felt hurt or disgusted with them, it would be like a way to make yourself feel better, and even righteous in relation to them -  ‘karma will bite them in the ass’, kind of thing.

What I find most interesting about this is that while there are always consequences to our actions, and that we do in fact leave a ‘mark’ in this world based upon who we are and how we live, our nature has been of seeing this in the context of spite and to apparently be better than others. For instance, somehow we look down at other in our judgment of their ‘wrong doing’ and think, ‘they will get what they deserve’, without really considering what karma is, how we have defined it, and how we actually exist as karma ourselves. I mean is there any consideration of our own karma – our own mark we are leaving in this world? Or are we too busy worried about how another will get their karma that’s coming to them, we forget to see and realize our own responsibility – or how we actually in fact create our own karma?

The fact that we have used karma against each other, enjoying others potential bad fortune as ‘what they deserve’, we have not considered what this actually reveals about our own nature and who we are as a whole, and how that leaves a mark on this world as the karma we create. And of course how karma in fact exists as ‘do unto another as you would have done unto you’. That is a living principle, which if lived in a self-honest way, we would support each other to become aware of how we are living, what we do to each other, and how we are in fact living words, such a karma, and how that influence the world, and those in it, around us. How we live as the word Karma, for example, reveals a part of our Human Nature, and take a look - there exists spite. And so we create spite in this world our our own nature lived out, or own karma being created because what exists within each one, exists within all equally. 

Currently – our definition of karma is an example of how we live words, based on how we define them and use them in our day to day life, and how they exits within ourselves, as a point of separation – to keep each other separated, to see each other as separate from ourselves and to use it against each other in our imaginary war of trying to be better than others. The only reason we do this is because we know we are in fact not living in the most self-honest way, within our utmost potential, and within our own deceptive nature, we want others to suffer and we want to call others out on ‘their shit’ without taking into consideration our own responsibility.

So perhaps this can be a lesson to us all – to look at who we are as the words we live – how do you define karma? And how does that reflect the nature of yourself? Is it in relation to others and them getting what they deserve, like a form of punishment? How we define words is how we live words, and how we live worlds is who we are at our very fundamental level – and that is the starting point from which we created our whole world – equally, together.

And herein exists the solution. Redefine words – purify ourselves as the living word so that we no longer exist within spite as the words we speak and live, and instead find a practical, ‘best for all’ approach to how we express and interact with each other. Of course, this always starts with ourselves. So stop wishing for Karma to put other's in their place, and instead, find your own place within the responsibility you have to life equally. What is the mark you are leaving in this World?

A very cool definition was given for Karma which sums up the point nicely. Your starting point is the truth of who you are within all that you do, and the outflow as how you create your life.

Karma is a Sanskrit term that literally means "action" or "doing". In the Buddhist tradition, karma refers to action driven by intention (cetana), which leads to future consequences.
