Hard work is common but unnecessary

We’ve been told to work hard. But the very successful don’t become successful through hard work. Even though they too fall into this mythical power of “working hard.”

Work-hard believers point to people like Michael Jordan, Ray Kroc, Thomas Edison and the like, as people who worked hard to get their rewards.

But all of these people, including other very successful people aren’t working very hard. What they are doing is doing the thing that lights their fire.

That’s what keeps a person willing to work all day and night. They aren’t doing that because they want the end goal. They are focused in the now, engaged in a seeming unlimited source of energy born of the connection with their passion and their focus.

In that, they find the delicious experience of flow.

Combat soldiers in the heat of battle get the same experience. They are so focused in the now, their reflexes, attention and abilities are heightened. And they can continue that way for long periods.

This connection is nothing more than the feeling one gets when the human being and its “larger self” are in direct communication. Whether you’re shooting hoops, planning and executing on a business strategy, exploring the limits of electricity, or trying to stay alive when others are trying to kill you, the connection and the indicator of that connection are the same: an intoxicating feeling of aliveness.

But you don’t have to go to Fallujah, create a massive company, or invent a new technology to have this experience. This experience is available to all. And no matter what happens when one’s alive, everyone gets it after death.

But you don’t have to wait to die to have it either.

The great thing is, tapping into it now, while you’re still alive, creates a life experience unparalleled by anything else.

And it’s guaranteed that if you can relax into it, and soothe your indoctrination that hard work is the key to success, you get all you want.

Hard work: unnecessary.

Work hard. Get paid. Get what you want.

That’s the hard way.

Here’s an easier one: know what you want. Focus on being happy while tuning into your intuition. Your life will take on a leisurely, joyful and ease-filled quality.

And in that state of grace, what you want comes not only easier, and more quickly, but also with greater satisfaction and delight.

All That Is is on your side. It wants you to have all you want. You don’t have to work to get it. And you definitely don’t have to work hard.

Hard work is not the key to success

Life experience says: all you want comes through hard work.

Or does it?

Life says you all you want comes through hard work because that’s what you tell yourself.

When you read books from people who “worked hard”, when you believe you have to work long hours because your colleagues, your “competitors” do, or your boss expects you to, when you feel you have to work weekends because you’re “behind the 8 ball”, you reinforce your belief story; the one seemingly consistent with your life experience that says “success comes from hard work.”

But your story is NOT consistent with your life experience. Your life experience is consistent with your story.

Change your story and your life will shape itself to fit the new story you tell.

You’ll get immediate results. But unless you know what to look for, you will miss them.

And that’s why people think positive thinking, affirmations, law of attraction and things like that don’t work. Because they don’t know what to look for.

Should you be able to drive if you don’t know what road markings mean, or if you don’t understand driving “rules”? Should you be able to teach someone else to drive?

Our guess is you’ll say “Of course not.”

Then we think you’ll agree that not knowing how to see the signs that positive thinking, affirmations and such are working, kinda disqualifies you from being an authority on whether such things work or not.

It’s better to just say “I don’t know.” Because if you don’t know how to see the signs, you don’t know.

Hard work can and often seems to lead to success. That’s only because so many people are working hard at being successful. Meanwhile, what’s actually creating the success they enjoy, has very little to do with the effort they employ.

Hard work is not the key to success. Success comes despite the hard work offered. So why are hard workers often successful and those who don’t work hard (seemingly) so often not?

Interesting paradox, isn’t it? Because a lot of hard workers are often not successful and sometimes those who don’t work hard are.

Most of us don’t seem to have the luxury of slowing down and exploring what they’re reading here. But if they overcome that story and test what we’re offering, they will find accuracy in all of this.

You can be successful without all the struggle you think you have to offer to get it.

 

It’s a great time to be alive

Trump has made America great again…by galvanizing so many against him.

Polarized America portends a balance restoration. Get ready. It’s gearing up to astound.

Gender equality and those pushing against it guarantee more freedom for all. The more strife, the greater the coming shift.

The world seems like it’s gone crazy.

In reality, everything is working out wonderfully.

It’s a wonderful time to be alive witnessing all this. And you are not here by accident. You knew it would be like this. That’s why you came. So enjoy the adventure!
