If you don’t “pay yourself first”, you probably won’t get paid

Taking another look at what we’re doing with the “Morning Ritual.” A question: why the physical motion? Isn’t it enough to sit quietly, meditate and visualize the results you want? A few thoughts:

1) The “Secret Formula” idea (Goals X Faith X Action X Gratitude = Results) arose from studying one of the core source materials for “The Secret.”

I had friends who loved “The Secret” but I found that while it seemed to work for some of them, for most people it didn’t. And what was missing was dynamism. Action. If you aren’t sufficiently emotionalized to get your own butt off the couch, what in the WORLD makes you think “the universe” is going to respond to you? That seemed to violate basic laws and principles that control everything I’ve ever experienced.

On the other hand, people who are already dynamic, already taking MASSIVE action, can seem to just “want” something, and it is like someone driving a Mercedes down the freeway–a slight “twitch” of their finger and the magnificent vehicle responds, and you change lanes and destinations. To an observer, you did almost nothing, because they didn’t notice the twitch of the finger.

DO SOMETHING. (more…)
