The 2 Behaviors That Will Guarantee Your Success

Everyone understands, or has felt at some point in their life, the value of heightened enthusiasm. You know, those times when you woke up early, and everything in your day was a constant stream of endless activity that developed results and brought you into connections with the people or the places to make your dreams happen. Let’s call it being on a psychological roll!

Enthusiasm itself has several subcomponents attached to it, but for now I’m sure you will agree that our level of enthusiasm will begin to move us toward our desired goal. As a matter of fact, the greater the level of enthusiasm, the greater the velocity of us moving toward our objective.

But have you ever considered the fact that it might also be possible to move our goal toward us? Think about it, why should we be making all the necessary effort to move toward our goal, when we can just as easily exhibit a second behavior, in addition to enthusiasm, which will move our goal toward us.

So, if the first behavior that we have to exhibit in this law of metaphysical magnetism is enthusiasm, and enthusiasm moves us toward our goal, what is the second behavior which will move our goal toward us?

The answer is behaving in a spirit of gratitude! When I say gratitude I don’t simply mean saying in your car, “Thank you for having the lights stay green for me.” I mean a deep, sincere gratitude.

Wallace Wattles in his 1910 work entitled “The Science of Getting Rich”, says it this way, “Many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude.” Wattles further states, “There is a lot of gratitude and if you are to get the results you seek, it is absolutely necessary that you should observe this law.”

The underlying physics behind gratitude is easy to understand. Gratitude is a thought. All thoughts vibrate at a certain frequency. Gratitude vibrates at a very high frequency. The end result is that as we begin to show gratitude for us moving toward our goal, the level of gratitude we display begins to move our goal toward us. The end result of this process is a very efficient manner of reaching our goal much quicker.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey

How do we go about building desire displaying more gratitude? The fact is, most of us simply don’t know exactly what we want. We might have vague notions of not having to work or having enough money to be worry free, but, if you really want to build desire, it is important to get way down into the foxholes of your consciousness. Basically, you need to be aware of what it is you want! Be specific!

In order to build desire you need to follow these 3 steps:

  • Set up a 30 minute time slot where you won’t be disturbed.
  • Look at your life with the eyes you had when you were a child. Every day was a new adventure; life was an ever-opening flower. Go back to being a child with wide eyed anticipation and unswerving faith that you will not be denied of your hearts desires.
  • Now, fill in the blank. Do it without the judge’s robe on. Do it as a child! List what you really truly want from life. Feel your blood pulse, your breath shorten and your excitement built. That is desire!

“The starting point of all achievement is desire.” – Napoleon Hill

Now that you know how to find desire, follow the next steps to build gratitude:

  • When was the last time you were thankful for your eyes, ears, feet, fingers? Give thanks for the simple things in your life.
  • Whatever it was that you desired (see above), give thanks! It is already yours. You need to receive it. Don’t sit down and wait for it to happen. Keep working, and work harder than you ever did, because what you desire is on the way.
  • Be grateful for the people that come into your life, even the ones you don’t like. They are there for a reason. Either they will guide you or you will learn a valuable lesson from them.

The steps above should create a psychological environment for you to begin to wrap your tentacles around what you want out of life.

Guess what? There is an added benefit. As you begin to use the above system, you will not only move toward what you want, and what you want will begin to move toward you, you will begin to enjoy the journey.
