Many books speak of success and describe the laws of success. There are several of them. The best known are “The 7 spiritual laws of success” by Deepak Chopra or “The 11 laws of success” by Anthony Robbins.
But, what if there was a formula that combined these laws and simplified the equation?
This formula is not taken from a personal development book, but from a book on real estate investment. Yes, because in any life project, whether spiritual, financial, professional or health, we all seek to succeed.
In his book “The secrets of real estate”, Charles Morgan gives us this magic formula:
Clear Vision + Burning Desire + Unwavering Faith + Perseverance = SUCCESS!
Whoever applies this formula will see their deepest desires realized.
1. A clear vision
Having a clear idea of what you want to achieve or get is the first stone in your life. These are the foundations of your success. If you don’t know where to go, there is big chances that you will never get there. Because as I like to say: the path to “somewhere” leads nowhere …!
Knowing what we want and having a clear and precise vision allows us to move forward in each stage of life. So when you feel lost, it is this vision of your future that will guide you into the dark. It will be your target to be reached that will serve as your engine in blurred and difficult times.
To make the vision clear, you need to set goals. What vision do you have of your life in 5 years? 10 years ? 20 years ? And that for all spheres of your life: financial, spiritual, professional, family, friendly, physical. Whatever you want to achieve, it is important to clarify it precisely by writing down your goals. They must be measured and achievable over time. Then put this sheet on your wall and look at it every morning when you get up and every night before going to sleep. You can also use a visualization board.
Doing this helps you nurture your desire for success.
2. A burning desire
Having a clear vision is not enough.
Desire is the source of all success. Without desire there is no will. Without willpower, nothing is accomplished. In addition to a clear vision of what you want to achieve, you will need to develop a strong desire to achieve your dreams. The longing must be deep and persistent all the way to your goals.
You will not reach your goals and will not achieve your dreams if you do not have this thirst for success, if you do not have this flame that burns in you to reach the top! This is what the 2nd spiritual law of success describes so well: the law of intention and desire.
The desire applied to the object of attention (that is to say our objectives) increases the energy of creation and realization. It is the strength of a desire that allows you to persevere despite passing defeats.
In other words, if you want then you can!
3. An unshakable faith
Add unwavering faith to this yearning and you will harness the full power of the law of pure potentiality. You will use a powerful creative power. Faith moves mountains!
To have faith is to have the deep and indestructible conviction that we will succeed in what we undertake. There is nothing magical or paranormal or even religious about the power of faith. It is experienced by everyone on a daily basis. When you are confident that you will succeed, then you begin to act as if you have already achieved what you desire. And if an obstacle occurs on your way to your goal, you will do everything to overcome it because you know deep down that you will succeed. That’s what having faith is.
To succeed, your faith must be so strong that nothing and no one will destabilize you and make you give up on the way. She must be unshakable!
Like burning desire, having faith then allows one to persevere despite obstacles and difficulties.
Persevering is going all the way. Not giving up until our dreams have come true. It is to continue obstinately until the goal is reached. During your life you will always encounter difficulties, unexpected obstacles. But if you want to succeed, you must persevere: do not give up at the first failure or at the first negative response.
Many people are afraid of “no” and are afraid of failure. Because “no” is associated with rejection and failure is associated with weakness. And since it is never pleasant to be rejected and human beings do not like to send back the image of someone weak or imperfect, so often they prefer to give up at the first obstacle, even if it means sacrificing their dreams.
Remember: you may have lost a battle, but not the war. Because a warrior of light knows how to rest and regain strength between each battle. And return to the conquest of his dreams.
In conclusion, your dreams will come true if you set yourself clear goals, if you nourish them with a burning desire to succeed, if you have faith in yourself and have the absolute conviction of achieving them and if you persevere whatever the obstacles on your path.
