How Spiritual Beliefs Can Help You Reach Success

Published

finding spirituality for success

The idea of success is always changing. In the past, success was seen as achieving only material items. Then, came the onslaught of people feeling both empty and lost. Turning to Spirituality to void the feelings of emptiness. Counsellors spent many hours discussing people’s lives with them, trying to  figure out where they had gone wrong despite the big house and fancy car.

More and more people realized that success was more than mere material wealth. Success was many things including a deep inner happiness, a feeling of peace and a constant energy that filled others with inspiration.

 

Is Success Only Money?

Success is many things, in fact, these factors are the basic spin-off for securing monetary success. Only when we have sound health, innate happiness, a passion for life and our career do we really achieve the big stakes when it comes to financial success.

Not everyone’s path is the same of course. Some people achieved success by hard work. However, they too are looking for more when feeling the emptiness described above.

The term spiritual beliefs, like success, has also gathered new meaning to many people. Limited spiritual beliefs do not always promote a deep sense of spirituality. These days the paths to spirituality are as varied as there are people and the basic laws of spirituality offers us guidelines for further achievement.

If your life is based on a target of achievement, only then, we can lose the very reason for our journey; Inner peace and inner success. Spirituality can guide us through the process of becoming more, it can also help us become great leaders due to our achievements. In days gone by the dog-eat-dog mentality was very prevalent. Today people admire those who help others to achieve the same success.

These people are true inspirations.

Many achievements are based on simple spiritual laws that you yourself may find helpful and rewarding.

 

Which Types of Spiritual Laws Could Help Us Become Successful?

 

The Law of Giving Back

The most powerful way to keep on being successful is to keep on giving. People who have achieved massive success give back to the community or become mentors to others trying to emulate them.

Sometimes you have to give away what you have in order to keep it! Doing good deeds for the community or helping a colleague at work creates a valuable symbiosis that keeps you on the ladder of success.

 

The Law Of Cause And Effect 

Everything we say or do creates a reciprocal situation. We not only affect the person we are talking too, but also their families and friends. Trying to create good energy by inspiring people or seeking the better good in things in turn creates a better feeling within us.

On a literal level, being a good businessperson gets you a good reputation.

 

The Law Of Intention

Perhaps we seek a happy marriage with children who feel protected and loved by us. This goal is more worthy than seeing six figures in the bank? We might see ourselves in perfect health and surrounded by loving relationships and friendships. This is the key of intention.

Sometimes we might think these things and other days we might need visual reminders of what we want. Making dream boards can be as simple as sticking that photo or picture on the fridge, just to remind us. The offshoot of these types of achieved goals helps us go on to achieve more of what we desire. It creates direction and purpose.

 

The Law Of Purpose

Everyone on earth has his or her own special talents and gifts that other people are inspired by. Sometimes we cannot see those for ourselves and at other times they are overt. No one can be puzzled by their talent if they are, say for example a brilliant piano player. Some people’s gifts reside on a more abstract level like ‘insight’ or an ability to build strategies. Write down your own talents and gifts and set about using them. This is quite easy since these are inherent to your own individuality. However, seeing them could prove difficult. Take time to decide what they are.

This creates a purpose in life.

There are many spiritual laws to help guide you to true happiness and success. These two concepts should not stand singular to each other. In fact, one should equal the other.

This is when you know you have reached the absolute pinnacle of achievement.

    I checked your site and it was awesome.

    The law of cause and effect applies to ourselves too. How we invest each second of our day will determine our future.

    Dream boards are magic. I have 2 big ones in my room and they prevent me from making any excuses about not living life to the fullest.

When I was a kid, it seemed like I felt pain more than anyone else around me. Not just physical pain, but emotional pain. I cried easily, over many things. I had an especially hard time when people were fighting around me, and I didn’t even have to be involved. I could feel the negative energy and felt upset and overwhelmed. I didn’t have a constructive way of handling it. (more…)

Don’t Want To Feel Like A Failure Anymore? Stop Doing These 6 Things

Published

It’s pretty annoying isn’t it? All those great and accomplished people telling you that FAILURE is a necessity on your way to success. Yeah, that’s easy for them to say; they’re already ‘on the other side’! You on the other hand, are still struggling all day everyday to get your business lifted off the ground and are really not that sure if you’re indeed going to make it.

There’s that little voice in your head that keeps telling you that you don’t have the stuff to make it all happen. Not now and not ever. You feel like a failure…it’s holding you back and you don’t know how to deal with it. Well you could do yourself a favor and start dealing with it by doing the following things:

1. Stop Denying You Feel Like A Failure

Telling yourself things are going great when they’re not is one of the biggest, though most useless, coping mechanisms human beings deploy in rough times. Common denial signals among entrepreneurs: trying to regain more control by working even more hours and on the other side compensating this by letting go of all this control by partying and drinking way too hard.

What you’re doing is denying yourself the opportunity to actually feel what’s going on and acknowledge the problem; that both you and your business are in a bad place. Without acknowledging it, it’ll be pretty difficult to actually STOP feeling it. And remember, just because you feel like a failure, this does not mean that you indeed ARE a failure!

2. Stop Making It Bigger Than it Really Is

This is one of those other ‘fun’ things human beings do; we blow things way out of proportion in our heads! In business, when you lose that big client you’ve been working on for weeks, it feels like it’s the end of the world. You start doubting yourself, your strategy, your entire business model right up to the point where you barely sleep because you’re working on pivoting the whole thing.

But what if that customer simply didn’t have the money to go for your service anyway? Or what if they just decided to go for someone who is cheaper but who offers less quality? Does that mean there’s something wrong with YOU? Or that this was the ONLY customer out there and that you’re now doomed forever?

Of course not, it simply means that THIS CUSTOMER wasn’t a match. It’s a bit like dating actually…So if you take this into consideration, could it be that you just feel like a failure instead of really not succeeding in that what you want to at this point in time?

3. Stop Thinking You’re The Only One Who Feels Like This

You’re not! With the possible exception of the true sociopaths, that feeling you’re feeling is very normal to EVERYONE. It might not seem like it on the outside – because people don’t like to acknowledge this remember – but I can guarantee you that it’s true. But unlike 99% of the world’s population, YOU’RE not going to let this feeling stop you in your tracks. Are you?

4. Stop Thinking You’re Supposed To Be Superhuman

In fact, it’s very likely that you’re already doing, learning and succeeding at WAY more than most other people are. But for entrepreneurs, somehow, that never seems to be enough. You don’t just want to be successful after a few years of hard work (which is normal). You want to be successful after only a few months. Because you’re special…or at least you think you are…

Well, here’s the truth: you ARE special! But…it’s just not very likely that you’re one of those – very very rare – entrepreneurial superstars that – seemingly – just added some hot water and got instant business success as a result.

5. Stop Being So Incredibly Stubborn

Entrepreneurs are stubborn…almost by default. It’s what makes them push forward in the hardest of times. But…if you’re not doing the right things right you might just be hammering a square peg through a round hole. Which will only add to that frustrated feeling you’re already having. So why not stop being so stubborn for a moment, stop hammering away on that what obviously is not working and ask for help?

No matter who you ask – a business mentor or coach, a befriended entrepreneur – someone with a neutral perspective on you and our business will be very likely to see what’s going on with a lot more clarity than you can and can guide you to a place that will feel a whole lot more comfortable.

6. Stop Being Afraid Of Failure

I know, I know, you’ve heard this a million times before and you wouldn’t be in this pickle if you could do this. Right? I’m right there with ya!

But, if you get really rational about it, what’s the worst that could happen?

  • You might have to get a ‘real’ job for a while and start over on the side;
  • You might not be able to afford your rent anymore…but with Airbnb on the 1 hand and couchsurfing on the other, you should be able to work it out somehow;
  • You’ll have all the more experience to start over a whole lot faster;
  • You’ll be no less respected by anyone because it’s clear you gave it your all;
  • In a few years, when you’re an established and supersuccessful entrepreneur you’ll also have a cool failure story to tell;
  • None of your limbs will fall off;

Now that’s not too bad for a plan B is it? Failure is such a negative word. And the associated feeling is terrible and numbing. But really…how is giving it your all and not succeeding really the same as failing? Shouldn’t the definition of failure not be along the lines of ‘not even trying’ or ‘giving up when it gets hard’?

In other words: stop beating yourself up over this!

There’s really no need to feel like a failure at all because you’re sticking your neck out, you’re trying to make a difference and you’re still moving upward on that treacherous entrepreneurial mountain.

And that…is what success REALLY is.
