The future is predictable if only we can constantly act in ways consistent with the results we want to see. Just like a house does not differ from its design and a metal or plastic piece its mold, the results we are getting are a function of the patterns, designs and molds we tailor our actions after.
Nothing is produced to specification without a design, a mould or a model. The dress maker has a pattern for every creation, the engineer has a design for every machine or building. How can we expect to succeed and not be designed for it? How can we expect success out of a mould that is average? How can we expect productivity without altering our habits?
Someone said you cannot move within and stand still without. We are failing not in having wealth and affluence, we are failing in being wealthy and affluent. For we all must first become that which we intend to possess if we are to experience that possession. Who we are determines what we do and what we do determines what we have.
The lion is a carnivore, it’s not eating raw flesh that makes the lion a carnivore it’s because it’s a carnivore therefore it eats raw flesh. So if you eat raw flesh that does not make you a carnivore. So having money does not make you wealthy it’s because you are wealthy therefore you have money. Hence we have a lot of broke people with lots of money.
It was Oliver Wendell Holmes that said “man’s mind once stretched by a new idea can never regain its original dimensions”.
Whatever you are experiencing that you have not grown to become will eventually elude you, the proceeds of that experience are temporal. This is the reason lottery winners end up worse than they were before winning the lottery. There is a class system in the world, there is the temptation to blame the world system for the class we currently occupy. We blame the unequal and unfair division of resources for our state, we blame corrupt politicians for eating our share of the national cake. But we forget that money is called currency and like current it flows. It flows to the one creating value and away from the one with a problem.
When we talk of predictable outcomes for success, productivity and wealth, the following variables are considered
• What kind of problem are you solving? Here we look at Dimensions and denomination.
• For whom are you solving this problem? We examine People Class.
• At what level can you solve this problem? What is your Expertise rating?
Dimensions – Problems that originate in the spiritual dimension are weightier than those that originate in the physical dimension, hence they attract a higher premium. The one who thinks i.e works with his head will rule the one that works with his hands
People Class – The president’s barber and the barber on your street are different, they are both barbers but serving different people classes
Expertise – your expertise ratings determines who can and is willing to pay you. This explains why two people can do the same job and earn different amounts.
Picasso once drew a beautiful portrait of a lady in a minute, it was a master piece and when asked what his fee was he said $1000 and the lady yelled saying it’s just a portrait. Picasso response was, you are not paying for just a portrait you are paying for my ability to deliver to you a master piece in so short a time.
A lot of people complain of an unfair system, they blame everyone but themselves for their lack of money, but can they honestly say they have a design for the life they want to create, can they show a pattern for which they are tailoring their success, and can they point at a mentor they are emulating.
If you will begin experiencing predictable outcomes in the area of wealth, productivity, success and progress, you must be intentional in your approach. Success can be engineered. Get a plan of action, find a mentor, and get an accountability partner.
Like a Mathematical sum there is a formula to success. There is a science to getting rich.
The man who wakes up and finds himself a success was not sleeping in the first place.
Commit to a daily routine to grow your mind.
That’s G.Y.M for today and I trust that you are charged up and obsessed with a burning desire to succeed. Ordinary is a misnomer for you.
Plan, Act and Pursue your dream.
