No One is Prevented From Getting Rich

Thursday, February 05, 2009

Again, it is not a matter of choosing some particular business or profession. People get rich in every business, and in every profession; while their next door neighbors in the same vocation remain in poverty.

It is true that you will do best in a business which you like, and which is congenial to you; and if you have certain talents which are well developed, you will do best in a business which calls for the exercise of those talents.

Also, you will do best in a business which is suited to your locality; an ice-cream parlor would do better in a warm climate than in Greenland, and a salmon fishery will succeed better in the Northwest than in Florida, where there are no salmon.

But, aside from these general limitations, getting rich is not dependent upon your engaging in some particular business, but upon your learning to do things in a Certain Way. If you are now in business, and anybody else in your locality is getting rich in the same business, while you are not getting rich, it is because you are not doing things in the same Way that the other person is doing them.

No one is prevented from getting rich by lack of capital. True, as you get capital the increase becomes more easy and rapid; but one who has capital is already rich, and does not need to consider hot to become so. No matter how poor you may be, if you begin to do do things in the Certain Way you will begin to get rich; and you will begin to have capital. The getting of capital is a part of the process of getting rich; and it is a part of the result which invariably follows the doing of things in The Certain Way.

You may be the poorest man on the continent, and be deeply in debt; you may have neither friends, influence, nor resources; but if you begin to do things in this Way, you must infallibly begin to get rich, for like causes must produce like effects. If you have no capital, you can get capital; if you are in the wrong business, you can get into the right business; if you are in the wrong location, you can go to the right location; and you can do so by beginning in your present business and in your present location to do things in the Certain Way which causes success.

delibes here - if only i had easy,open access to limitless money then i could travel and go where i am needed, play, live as comfortably as i want, no longer feel angst, failure resentment, and i would be happy. i am happy now, as often as i can and i do enjoy the moment and i do really feel grateful for what in have, most of the time. that heaviness which feels anquored in negativity too easily reminds me to have another look around at what i would rather be, have, see. then that same heaviness nods and says see, i was right, you can't have, be do that, it's too hard, you are not smart enough and you can't handle big money! it's too late - pure ego.....i am very aware at this moment of a huge lump in my throat and tears are beginning to fall....i have hit a nerve. thank you for being here.

If I only had someone to tell me what the heck the "CERTAIN WAY" is, then I could do EVERYTHING a CERTAIN WAY and I would be happy!
Boy, what a tease this Mr. Wattles is!

If only I had absolute faith and trust in my abundance of blessings, then I could do all I dream of without fear or worry and I would be happy.

Of course I do my channeling right after I read the daily Prosperity Project message and as I was pondering "The Certain Way", Ole said, "MY GUESS IS THAT IT'S CREATING"

If only I had a brain...!!
Yowsers! Where did that one come from???

If only I had $250,000, then I could pay my all my debts, get a Vardo Van, turn my property into a really cool and magical place, and have absolute freedom to travel and blog and create and do cool stuff whenever and however felt like the most fun!

Stories I tell myself? Well there's the one about how it's too late and I've totally screwed up my life past the point of no return. And there's the one about how I deserve to be punished and suffer for my "sins" (I'm sure there are uncountable numbers of them). The fables of how I "can't" and I "don't know how" to .... do or be whatever...

And more recently, I've been working on a story about how I can be a metaphysical Paris Hilton with a rich indulgent dad who gives me whatever I ask for... even if I screw up, even if I'm a neurotic mess, even if I am a totally undeserving spoiled brat. And not only that, he'll even help me out of the messes I create and IF and WHEN I ask him to. I like that story!! I think I'm going to keep it around for a while

If only I had my health intact, and weren't so tired, and were more centered in my thinking, then I could do so many things that I've always wanted, to start the projects that have been on nold, to begin life again, to get back on my feet, and get moving, to afford the best health care, and to finally do some things that really make a difference in the world, not just working to make a living, or waiting for things to be alright before i begin.

What are the stories you tell yourself about why you can't do or be who or what your heart desires?
THe old stuff, it's not my world, to be filled with wealth and joy and peace, and plenty. I'm not worthy (so i'm worthless i guess that's the conclusion, interesting...) I made too many mistakes, and i'm not ever going to be ablet repair them, and can't ever get things right, try but seem to always be stuck, one thing after another... Seems like a typical, boring liitny of complaints that just about anyone might come up with, and not really creative, and certainly not useful!
