Doesn’t every person in life want to be successful?
There seems to be something inside each person that drives us to be successful. But what is success? Is success money? Riches? Fame? Cars? Position? Power? Prestige? Status symbolizes? Relationships? Even our constitution admits that our creator designed us to have the right to pursue happiness.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
This world is full of people that have all of those things, prestige, wealth, mansions, fame and are still fighting constant depression, unhappiness and some have committed suicide. Every person in this world at some point has gotten “stuck.” On their way to success and happiness, they are stuck.
Years ago I described my life like this: I am in my very powerful car and the engine is revving and the tires are spinning and it really sounds like I am going somewhere. But when I look out my side window, I see that I am not really going anywhere. Nothing is going by, nothing is changing. I can get out of my car and walk around it and analyze the situation and come to the correct analysis: I am stuck in the mud. Yep my engine is revving and my tires are spinning but I am going nowhere. I am stuck in the mud. How do I get out of this situation?
Many people are stuck in the mud in different ways. One way for me was anger. Every time a friend of mine called me “Bro,” I wanted to deck him. I could feel the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and it was extremely difficult to not punch him.
Others have the “boss problem.” I was in the corporate world for twenty years and had the boss that dangled carrots in front of workers promising them promotions if they would just do this or that and they would work 100 hours a week for years
trying to get the promotion and never receive it. I worked extremely hard for one reporting period, doing EVERYTHING my boss requested and expected to get a raise and did not receive any raise at all, not even a cost of living increase. But I learned, not only did I get a raise but I received the only promotion that boss EVER signed for anyone.
Others are stuck in their home life where each and every day it is a battle with their spouse or the kids or their kids are battling each other and all they can do to solve the situation is go to DE taunt; neutral corners and never speak or relate to each other until they just become roommates that tolerate each other at best or at worst, divorce. But I had a guy at work watch me for 2 years and at the end of that time come to me and ask if I would help him with the relationship with his wife. He said he was impressed with the relationship I have with my wife and he wanted me to teach him how to relate to his wife like I do with mine. I have had others come to me and say the same thing, so I helped them.
A family member was on the edge of divorce telling me he had no idea what to do. He was going to lose his wife. So I spent time with him and it is now said by family members that that marriage is intact today because of the time I spent with him.
I have 9 children and if you think a couple of kids can create sibling rivalry and discontentment among the children, try raising 6 boys and 3 girls. I had some kids admit that they were actually mean to their sibling and while they still live in the same house, they have become good friends. I had a son and a daughter that fought and actually could not stand each other but while living in the same house, they became best friends and remain so today.
I have had our house burn to the ground while my wife was pregnant with our 9th
child only to find during the chaos of no home and no work because of the fire, our 9th child had down’s syndrome and neither the fire nor the news of our child, drive a wedge between my wife and I.
I was laid off many times during my 20 years in the corporate world and went as long as 9 months without work and down to no money to put gas in the tank of our car to get to a job interview that actually landed me a 30% pay increase from my previous employment because I had turned down a job offer which came after 6 months of being unemployed and the interviewer could not believe I did not take his offer since as he put it “after 6 months of no work and unemployment ran out a long time ago, you must be desperate.” What did I know?
After working in the corporate world for 20 years, I started my own family business that is a successful business for the past 20 years. I have learned how to work with my wife to not only be a happy marriage partner but successfully be business partners as well which has its own special requirements that many have not been able to be successful.
There is some basic information that everyone needs to know before leaving this earth that used to be taught in our schools and in our homes and is no longer readily available to the general public but I want everyone to get “unstuck” and know how to have a successful life.
I cannot teach everyone. I cannot promise fame, fortune or a perfect life, but if you are humble and you can walk outside and close your eyes, listen and feel for a minute. You might be the kind of person that I can help. With your eyes closed, can you feel the wind? Can you feel it on your face, in your hair, moving your shirt or blouse? Do you hear it moving and affecting things around you?
Now open your eyes. Do you see the wind? If you can say that you can believe there are forces that you can feel that are affecting what is going on around you, that you cannot see, but never the less are real; then you might be the kind of person I can help get unstuck and be successful in having an abundant life since that is what you were created to have: an abundant life.
Life and have it more abundantly no matter what comes your way! This is actually true success.
