#29 Law of Success
Most Laws of Success are short and sweet, but so
very important to YOUR success! As the saying
goes, sometimes less is MORE. Pay attention.
The laws always work when YOU apply them.

Let go of past hurts, and move on.

“To forgive is not just to be altruistic. It is the best
form of self-interest. It is also a process that does
not exclude hatred and anger. These emotions are
all part of being human. You should never hate
yourself for hating others who do terrible things:
the depth of your love is shown by the extent of your
anger.

“However, when I talk of forgiveness I mean the belief
that you can come out the other side a better person.
A better person than the one being consumed by anger
and hatred. Remaining in that state locks you in a state
of victimhood, making you almost dependent on the
perpetrator. If you can find it in yourself to forgive then
you are no longer chained to the perpetrator. You can
move on, and you can even help the perpetrator to
become a better person too.” ~Desmond Tutu; Vocal
critic of South African apartheid and instrumental in
ending those policies

Anger, pain, and grudges keep you mired in the past,
continually stewing in a boiling hot pot of rancid
bitterness. Letting it all go releases a huge weight
from your mind and heart, and may even relieve
physical symptoms of disease or pain. Apparent
miracles have occurred to those who became strong
enough to achieve forgiveness… Illnesses have
disappeared, income has doubled, achievements
and happiness have increased, and the world has
become a loving and nurturing place to live once
again.

If you feel stuck with a past issue and just haven’t
been able to let go yet (or you don’t even want to)
you may not have passed through all the emotional
stages needed to come to a completeness.

In this situation, it’s helpful to acknowledge all of
your feelings surrounding the issue and people
involved by writing. When you process your
feelings all the way through these 6 stages, you’ll
find yourself emerging on *the other side* a
much lighter and joyful person.

At each stage, write until you’ve exhausted the
inner list you’ve had rolling around in your mind
and heart ever since the incident happened.
Spend equal time and attention on each one.

1. Write about why you’re angry.

2. Write about how and why you feel hurt.

3. Write about what you are or were afraid of
in this situation.

4. Express your regret, take responsibility for
the part that you played.

5. State exactly what it is that you want.

6. Express compassion, forgiveness, love or acceptance
to the other person involved.

At this point, you can either share your feelings calmly
with the one involved, allowing him or her to do the
same, or throw the paper away as a demonstration
of your letting go.

If you find yourself becoming angry about this issue
again, repeat the process over and over (even over
a period of weeks if need be). One day all of a
sudden you’ll realize that this particular anger
simply doesn’t come up to bother you anymore.

Enjoy your new freedom and all that it brings to
you!

Initiate closures on your past situations.

When I was a young mother, I remember reading
about the developmental stages of infants, then
toddlers, and then preschoolers. There were
certain things I wanted my child to experience and
learn before moving onto the next step.

There was the possibility of a *glitch* in the system
of a developing child if he/she missed a step that
would hinder that child’s future right development.

In terms of successfully achieving goals, that’s true
of all of us, not just growing children. You can’t make
a million bucks until you learn to make a few hundred,
then a few thousand, etc. Achieving any goal is a
process, and when you skip a step, you find yourself
hitting your head on your own ceiling, over and over
again, never quite able to reach the next floor up.

Clean up your messes.

Is your office or home cluttered? That’s a good
indication that your mind is too cluttered to move
forward onto a level of new success. Organize
them before you do anything else. Put everything
in its place, so that you know where they are when
you need them, and they’re not out cluttering your
space and peace of mind.

Are your *to do* lists piling up on each other?
Reorganize them into one list, prioritize each item
(which is the most important, then the next most
important one, etc.), and get rid of those that are
no longer relevant. Now, start at number 1 and
complete your list before moving onto your next
goal.

Do you have some relationships that need mending?
Supply the needed communication, forgiveness, or
closure. That real heaviness in your heart and on
your shoulders will vanish, and you’ll feel much
better about yourself and the world you live in.

Do some of your favorite clothes need dry cleaning?
Repaired? Get it handled. Do you have clothing that
you haven’t worn in the past year? If so, you’ve already
given up ownership of them – they may no longer be
*you*. Give them to Good Will or the Salvation Army
for there are those who could cherish them.

Is your faucet dripping? Fix it, or if you don’t know
how, hire a plumber or borrow a book from the
library that gives you step by step instructions. Maybe
your co-worker Bob knows how to fix faucets easily.
What can you barter with Bob in exchange for fixing
your faucet? Maybe you have a friend who’d fix it for
free! Invite him or her over and serve a wonderful
dinner to your friend after the faucet is fixed.

Look at every cluttered place in your home, including
basements, garages, attics, yards, drawers, cupboards,
& closets… Clean them up and reorganize them one
by one.

All things left undone irritate you (consciously or
subconsciously) and eat away at your energy reserves
and attention, leaving less time, motivation, and
emotional freedom to move onward and upward.

Face them, deal with them, and make this your
new motto:

I Decide, Plan, Start, Continue, Finish, and Complete…
Always.

Shift your focus to the positive every evening.

The most influential time of day for impressing your
subconscious mind and belief system is the last 45
minutes of your day. Your mind replays and processes
this last 45 minutes up to six times more often than
anything else that happened during the day (which is
a good reason not to fall asleep while the television
and / or the news is on!).

Each night when your body winds down and you start
drifting off to sleep, you enter the alpha state. “Alpha”
is the term used to describe a relaxed brainwave pattern
and is the doorway to your subconscious mind.

When your brain vibrates at a 7-14 Hz frequency, you
are said to be in alpha. You know when you’re
experiencing an alpha state when you feel pleasantly
relaxed, soothed, and you’re letting your mind wander
or daydream.

Common occurrences in the alpha state:

-Freedom from pain
-Physical healing
-Rapid assimilation of facts (faster and easier
learning)
-Creative imagery and problem solving
-Personal psycho therapeutic insights
-Heightened memory or recall
-Altered sense of time

In-depth studies have shown that people using slower
rhythms of the brain increase their ability to achieve
desired goals and maintain positive attitudes and actions.

As your body begins to relax, your mind may bring up
all the problems you had during the day in order to
help solve them. Replay each one as a movie in your
mind’s eye, but play it out them the way you would have
preferred them to happen. In your mind movie, make
the changes necessary to solve the problem or create a
more positive outcome.

Not only will you feel more peaceful, but you will have
impressed your subconscious mind with a desired
behavior and positive results for the next time a similar
situation occurs.

When all your movies have been remade, let go of
reworking those problems, and instead, now focus on
all the successes you had that day. What did you do
right? Did you make someone’s day easier? Did you
make someone laugh? Did you accomplish more than
you anticipated? Did you keep a smile on your face
and your chin up even during stressful moments?

When you drift off to sleep congratulating yourself on
all you did right, your self-esteem and confidence builds
while your subconscious will make sure more right
actions occur in the following days and weeks.

Happy Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs!

#26 Law of Success

Claim all past and present successes.

There’s usually emotional trauma associated with
the negative events or failures in our past, so we
remember them much more clearly than all our
positive events and achievements.

When we were children, our parents, teachers, and
other authority figures probably had a tendency to
pay much more attention to the things we didn’t do
well.

Remember what happened in your household when
you “got in trouble.” Now remember what happened
when you did something you were proud of…. What
was the difference in the reactions you got? Do you
see the difference? Do you feel the difference?

Most of us grow up carrying that feeling and associated
negative beliefs about ourselves. That’s where your
self-doubt and fears come from. But now that you
know, you can turn these negative beliefs and feelings
around and head them directly in the opposite direction.

Take an inventory of all your successes, no matter how
small. Divide your life up into decades and write down
all the successes you can remember for each time period.

Did you learn to walk? Did you learn to talk? Did you
graduate from diapers to underwear? Those are all
major achievements when you think about it, so don’t
leave anything out.

Did you take piano lessons? Did you learn to ride a bike?
Did you perform in any recitals or choirs? Did you get an
“A” at any time in school? Did you do something nice for
a friend? Did you make breakfast for your parents? Did
you help two fighting friends to make up? Etc., etc.

See if you can get your list all the up to 100. Prove to
yourself that you are, indeed, a successful person, for
you truly are.

A lot of us didn’t get the recognition that we deserved, and
we feel incomplete without that acknowledgment. This
exercise completes the circle with the most important person
in our life – ourself. So keep your list and put it into a
Victory Notebook. Make a habit of adding to your list every
day, even with the little things you accomplished for the day.

Did you get some chores done that you weren’t looking
forward to? Did you keep any personal disciplines up
(like taking your vitamins, exercising, dietary considerations,
meditation etc.)? Were there any temptations that you
refused to give in to?

For some, it may be a big accomplishment just to get out
of bed in the morning, get cleaned up and dressed for the
day. For others, even taking the trash out feels great. No
accomplishment is too small – name them all!

Acknowledging yourself in this way very powerfully
influences your subconscious mind to work even harder for
you. As you keep up this practice, your critical self-talk
will diminish and gradually disappear while your
achievements grow.

Get started today. You deserve it!

Spend your time with successful people.

It’s very important to be around people you wish you
were like because people do become similar to the
people they hang around with the most.

High achievers in any area of your interest have already
climbed the ladders that are ahead of you, and can be
your biggest mentors, support, and encouragement to
keep reaching, while warning you of the pitfalls before
you reach them along the way.

Recall the phrase, “It’s not who you are, it’s who you
know.” While you’re transforming into the person
who achieves your dreams, that statement is important
to pay attention to. When you befriend someone
who you really admire, you’ll meet other extraordinary
people, as well. A world of possibilities and oppor-
tunities will open before you.

When you hang around with people that have mediocre
standards of “settling” and simple “existing” and who
don’t have an energetic love of life, forward movement
and growth, it’s tougher to keep striving and reaching
yourself. All of us need nurturing as we grow. People
with high standards of being and uplifting positive attitudes
who think creatively rub off those nourishing qualities on
those they surround themselves with. Make sure you’re
one of them!

Idea box:
Professional clubs and organizations in your city;
health clubs; chamber of commerce; country clubs;
leaders’ associations; civic groups; volunteer services;
camps; retreats; courses; seminars; lectures

Peruse your local paper and bookstores. You’re
sure to find something that is of interest to you. Pick
one and join. Your life will change, guaranteed.

Keep rolling the dice to come out a winner.

The single most important quality that all successful
people possess is the power of persistence. No
matter the obstacles, no matter unforeseen road-
blocks, and no matter how huge they appear, those
who are or will be successful keep rolling the dice
over and over again.

The longer you play, the greater the odds are in your
favor of coming up a winner, so there’s no use in
getting discouraged and quitting. Winning could
very possibly be the next roll of the dice.

Within every road to successful achievement are
buried invisible land mines you’re almost certainly
going to step on.

Don’t panic. Remove yourself from the situation,
step back and ask yourself these three questions:

1. “What are 3 ways I can move OVER this
obstacle?”

2. “What are 3 ways I can move UNDER this
obstacle?”

3. “What are 3 way I can move AROUND
this obstacle?”

Give yourself the time necessary to find the answers,
for they are there when you look for them!

“People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve
outstanding success because they don’t know
when to quit. Most men succeed because they
are determined to.” ~George E. Allen

“Most of the important things in the world have
been accomplished by people who have kept on
trying when there seemed to be no help at all.”
~Dale Carnegie

“Nothing in the world can take the place of
persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common
than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not;
unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education
will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan, ‘press on’ has solved, and always will
solve, the problems of the human race.”
~Calvin Coolidge

Keep on keepin’ on! 🙂

Break your goals down into small simple steps.

Sometimes a goal we want to reach seems like an
impossible dream. Don’t throw it out the window
just yet! Calm your feelings of overwhelm by
breaking your goal down into manageable and
achievable tasks that you can perform much more
easily one by one.

1. Treat your main goal as if it’s the title to a book.

2. What big steps need to be accomplished to reach
your goal? Those are your main chapter headings.
Write them down!

3. Now, look at your first chapter heading. Write
down each little step you know you’ll have to take
to accomplish it. Your first *chapter* is born. 🙂

4. Later on, you may need to do further research
or ask the advice of those who have already
accomplished this step in order to round out your
chapter, but for now, write down the steps you DO
know you need to take, and repeat this process
with each chapter heading.

Reviewing the *book* you’ve just created, can
you see and feel how possible it is now to reach
your main goal by taking it one tiny little step at
a time?

Start your baby steps today, and before you
know it, you’ll have walked a few miles and your
goal will have been reached!

See every obstacle as a blessing.

You’ve heard of the sayings, “Within every black
cloud is a silver lining,” and “When one door closes,
a window opens.”

It’s absolutely TRUE! When you look for the
positive in every negative, you find it. The Universe
truly does have something better in store for you
when you believe it, look for it, and find it.

How often have you felt depressed or even devastated
when something unexpected and unwanted happened?
Think back on those so-called negative events in your
life… What did they lead you to? What opportunities
were you able to grasp and grow into that you wouldn’t
have been able to otherwise? What did you learn from
them? Are you a stronger person now? What
achievements or advancements came as a direct result
of what you once believed was devastation?

Choose to believe that everything shows up in your
life for a positive reason – to move you toward
growth, wisdom, and much better life and relationship
conditions.

“One’s best success comes after his greatest
disappointments.” ~Henry Ward Beecher

“I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and
frustration were actually laying the foundation for
the understandings that have created the new level
of living I now enjoy.” ~Anthony (Tony) Robbins

Create an ATTITUDE of believing in yourself.

High self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-
assurance have as their essence a deep-seated
belief that you are capable of accomplishing
anything you set your mind to with your own
abilities, talents, skills, and resources.

The latest brain research reveals that with
enough positive self-talk and visualization that
is combined with training and practice, anyone
can accomplish almost anything.

“You have to expect things of yourself before you
can do them.” ~Michael Jordan

So it IS true. You CAN accomplish your desires.
Believing in yourself or NOT believing in yourself
are both self-fulling prophecies – when you belief
that it is possible, you do whatever it takes to
bring about the result you desire. People who
don’t believe in themselves DON’T do whatever
is necessary to bring out the result.

“Argue for your limitations and, sure enough,
they’re yours.” ~Richard Bach, Illusions

Your brain is designed to solve any puzzle or
attain any goal that you give it. The words you
say and think do affect your mind and physical
body. Remove every *It’s impossible* and
*I can’t* from your thoughts and vocabulary.
Instead, affirm *IT’S POSSIBLE* and *I CAN*
every day, regardless of what you think anyone
else’s opinion of you and your abilities are.

“When there is no enemy within, the enemies
outside cannot hurt you.” ~African Proverb

“Nobody can make you feel inferior without your
consent.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

“A successful person is one who can lay a firm
foundation with the bricks that others throw at
him or her.” ~David Brinkley

“Other people’s opinion of you does not have to
become your reality.” ~Les Brown

Create a new belief system that what you desire is
possible.

Average people live in the past. They’ve been
conditioned by their own experiences on what to
expect next. And that expectation usually does
happen, making them self-fulfilling prophecies.

Instead of pondering all the reasons why your
desires can’t happen, create, hold, and remind
yourself daily of all the reasons why they CAN.

Your brain will begin to retrain itself on *what
happens next* and will actually start expecting
the positive achievement!

“Sooner or later, those who win are those who
think they can.” Richard Bach

Believe in YOU and believe that your desires are
absolutely and without a doubt attainable!
