Success is a Science (Part 11 – Final)
Conclusion: Seek Joy First
(To read previous blogs, click here)
As you practice the system, you will find yourself naturally coming to one conclusion: your desires are not really the end goal.
What does that mean? Each person seeks joy through the attainment of his own unique desires. One person might seek joy through one desire, while another seeks joy through a completely different desire. The one thing that all people seek, no matter what their individual desires are, is joy.
Each desire is temporary, because as you know, once you have achieved whatever it is that you want, your mind then moves to the next thing. You are always creating your life, and you never get it done. Once you accept that, you can actually settle down and enjoy the journey. In fact, you can even grow to love the feeling of unfulfilled desire, because the feeling of desire itself is the feeling of being truly alive.
At this point, we would like to encourage you to take a snapshot of how alive you feel after reading through this series compared to a snapshot of how alive you felt before you started.
You’ll notice that you literally feel more alive. Feel more wonderful.
The 12-Week Challenge
There is a way to amplify your feeling of being alive while at the same time speeding up the achievement of all of your desires, and it only takes 12 weeks.
Here it is: By now, you have experienced the power of this series after one reading. What if the power of this series were to double every time you read through it? Can you imagine the difference it will make to your life?
Here’s what you do…You read a part each day of the week, and then you start again. You do this for 12 weeks in a row.
If you complete the 12-week challenge, you will create positive changes in your life that are far better than you can even imagine right now. You will become a happy achiever.
Don’t say, “When I have time, then I’ll think about doing it.” DO IT NOW! Start immediately. Jump in with both feet. As Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” Refuse to play the “when, then” game, putting off your happiness to some future date. Claim it now and begin it now.
As a happy achiever, you are living your life with an experience of abundance right now, rather than lack. A happy achiever does not need to be, do, or have anything in order to achieve completeness. Happy achievers don’t play the “when, then” game because they are already complete.
The desperate seeker unconsciously gives away his power (Actually, a chunk of his life energy) to his desire and therefore causes himself to feel incomplete until his desire is attained, at which point he gets his power back and then gives it away again to a new desire. He is always seeking and never has a feeling of contentment.
The happy achiever grows his feeling of joy for the desire until it actually encompasses the desire so that he always has a feeling of completeness because he enjoys the desire when it is unfulfilled just as much as he enjoys it when it is fulfilled.
As a happy achiever, you spend most of your time balanced, poised, relaxed and happy. You are consistently empowering yourself rather than disempowering yourself.
Many challenges may come up along the way, and when you reach the point where you can “see every problem as a valuable opportunity to grow”, then you will have reached the point when you can honestly say “I choose to be happy no matter what.”
This is the real state of “unconditional love”. The real focus of your attention should be on developing true unconditional love for life itself.
You will experience freedom, empowerment and peace of mind when your happiness does not depend on the conditions of your life being a certain way. This is true independence. This should be your highest goal.
When you experience true unconditional love, the one thing that you will want to do is share it. This feeling is more than a feeling of completeness. It’s a feeling of overflowing with joy. This is truly the most fulfilling definition of success. Ralph Waldo Emerson expressed it best in the following poem:
To laugh often and much
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children.
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends
To appreciate beauty
To find the best in others
To give of oneself
To leave the word a bit better;
Whether by a healthy child, a garden
patch, or a redeemed social condition
To have played and laughed with
enthusiasm and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
because you lived
This is to have succeeded
When you read these words, it puts you back in touch with what’s really important in life. If these words have touched you in some way and you are feeling this overflowing of joy, whether it’s in a huge, wondrous way or a vague, subtle way, it’s important that you know right now that you can multiply this joy and experience it stronger and more frequently throughout your life by reaching out and sharing it with others.
Become an example of joy to those around you by practicing the 3 Circles system and reading through this series for 12 weeks. Life is a gift.
Until next time,
