The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most powerful in existence. To those who perceive the nature and transcendency of mental force, all physical power sinks into insignificance.
Last week I talked about bringing your mental state into vibrational harmony with what you want. As we learn in this weeks lesson concentration is required, not just mere thinking.
Focused conscious thought on our ideal allows us to raise our rate of vibration or frequency to match the object of our desire and begin to attract it to us.
True conceptions are only secured by spiritual insight. This insight requires a quickening of the vibrations of the Mind, and is only secured when the mind is continuously concentrated in a given direction.
Continuous concentration means an even, unbroken flow of thought and is the result of patient, persistent, persevering and well-regulated system.
Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it, when just the contrary is necessary.
The greatness of an actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character, becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the performance.
This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else.
Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.
All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own.
Spiritual Truth is therefore the controlling factor; it is this which will enable you to grow out of limited attainment and reach a point where you will be able to translate modes of thought into character and consciousness.
Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration.
There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.”
You must concentrate on who you need to become in order to acquire the things you wish to have and do the things you want to do.
We become what we think about intently, all day long. We may need to focus consciously at first, but eventually a belief is formed and becomes unconscious.
This becomes our identity and our actions follow suit.
I’ve heard it said… don’t want a million dollars for the money, but for who you must become in the process of acquiring the million dollars. You may lose the money, but never the character you developed along the way.
You can literally download information from the Universe like you would the Internet. This is spiritual insight and is also known as intuition.
Haanel explains this concept beautifully…
The spirit of initiative and originality is developed through persistence and continuity of mental effort.
Business teaches the value of concentration and encourages decision of character; it develops practical insight and quickness of conclusion.
The mental element in every commercial pursuit is dominant as the controlling factor, and desire is the predominating force; all commercial relations are the externalization of desire.
Many of the sturdy and substantial virtues are developed in commercial employment; the mind is steadied and directed; it becomes efficient.
The principal necessity is the strengthening of the mind so that it rises superior to the distractions and wayward impulses of instinctive life and thus successfully overcomes in the conflict between the higher and lower self.
Vibration is the action of thought; it is vibration which reaches out and attracts the material necessary to construct and build.
There is nothing mysterious concerning the power of thought; concentration simply implies that consciousness can be focalized to the point where it becomes identified with the object of its attention. As food absorbed is the essence of the body, so the mind absorbs the object of its attention, gives it life and being.
If you concentrate on some matter of importance, the intuitive power will be set in operation, and help will come in the nature of information which will lead to success.
Intuition arrives at conclusions without the aid of experience or memory. Intuition often solves problems that are beyond the grasp of the reasoning power.
Intuition usually comes in the Silence; great minds seek solitude frequently; it is here that all the larger problems of life are worked out. For this reason every businessman who can afford it has a private office, where he will not be disturbed.
This really works, I received an amazing insight during my sit this week!
I’ve always said network marketers get less “on the job” training than a McDonald’s worker. How do you expect a brand new business owner to succeed when he gets less training and support than a minimum wage employee?
Your up-line is supposed to be your manager, but his manager just told him to make a list of a 100 people and use this script, good luck!
It’s the blind leading the blind and with the start-up cost being so low most people give it average effort for 2-3 months then quit when they don’t get the results they expected.
Inflated expectations is whole other issue in itself! People are being sold the dream of making millions and the promise of residual income, but are being lied to about the time and effort required to actually succeed.
So… my “idea” is to open physical offices around the country where new recruits can get in person “on the job” advanced training. A sort of hybrid online/offline program that’l include mindset, marketing, prospecting, closing and leadership training from an expert.
I’m bringing back the mentor-apprentice mastery model and applying it to network marketing!
It’ll start out in house for my team then once it’s standardized and systematized I’ll make it available for anyone in MLM.
I received so many great and actionable ideas in one 30 minute session that I know exactly what I need to do next and have enough to keep me busy for the next 3 months.
I know the next steps will be revealed as I focus on my ideal and continue to take action!
By keeping the thought in mind, it will gradually take tangible form. A definite purpose sets causes in motion which go out in the invisible world and find the material necessary to serve your purpose.
Create a Great Day!
