"There will come a time when you believe that everything is finished.
That will be the beginning."
When I was in the army years ago we took training in bayonet combat, and they told us that there were two kinds of soldiers in combat, the quick and the dead.
When I coach clients today in my business coaching and life coaching jobs, I have two kinds of clients. The QUICK: those who are interested in effecting a quickening in the success curves.
And the DEAD: those who repeat the past day after day.
I, myself have been both in my life. And I can assure you that quick is better.
Better than this form of dead: buried alive. In unfinished tasks and obligations.
But any of us can be either one. That's the fundamental choice at the heart of everything. You've got to get to the heart of it first.
I'm starting a wealth mastermind that will focus on one thing, money. How to make it. How not to be afraid of it. How to create a quickening. How to have a fully prosperous life. Because how much life is there? Do you know? (Anyone.)
This group will focus on the law of creation, not the law of attraction. I love the law of attraction but it's only a paper moon.
The law of creation says if you want to make more money figure out better ways to serve. And better ways to ask.
Better ways to ask! A mastermind in asking and serving.
Byron Katie says, "You could have anything in life you wanted if you were willing to ask 1,000 people for it."
But we stop asking.
Sometimes we don't ask big enough. Or, we ask only once.
No one ever holds us accountable for how much productive asking we do. (This group will change that.....email me at SChandler@cox.net for me to send you more info on how to join, and it will be a small group, only nine people plus me, starting February 16, we sit around a table monthly...we do other cool things together...there is a quickening......email me.)
We don't ask for money because we fear rejection. As if there were such a thing! Rejection is a feeling we produce by believing certain erroneous thoughts. It doesn't exist in reality. (People are stopped from becoming prosperous by something that doesn't even exist. The universe has a wicked sense of humor.)
I love going to Vancouver to work with my partner Sam Beckford helping people grow their wealth through the law of creation.
Places like Vancouver always feel so lovely, rain-drenched, dappled in shades of green you never see in Arizona. So my travel there is good. It refreshes. But we also don't want to miss Ralph Waldo Emerson's point about how much we shape our traveled-to beauties by our inner life and perception. Rain can be overdone. It can get dreary. So many songs tell you. Here's that rainy day.
I forget and take for granted the magnificent light in Arizona. Ever see the Native Americans do a sand-painting?
They take a fistful of rust-colored sand and let a stream come out on top of an ivory mandala of sand and soon every shade of light in the world is being eaten and reflected by the sand.
Wealth is everywhere.
Emerson said, "To the dull mind, all of nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world sparkles with light."
The illumined mind has shifted to the light.
Once many years ago when I was depressed about not making enough money in my business I talked to my friend and mentor Steve Hardison. Hardison said, "To shift your mind you might want to simply shift your body into the light, literally."
He recommended I get out of Wayne's World (my nickname for the office I had at that time in my garage) and into the outdoors, so I could experience more light. More light on the outside, more light on the inside.
So I reluctantly followed his advice, and started doing my work out on the back patio in the sun and it shifted! My mood picked up and I started having the conversations that generated new business.
Wealth is everywhere.
So let's travel to India to follow this thought through. Not literally, but through the Indian poet Tagore who said, "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark."
My mastermind will put nine people plus me in the light. There is no rejection in the light. There is only faith.
