Do Not...

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Do not give your creative impulse to Original Substance, and then sit down and wait for results; if you do, you will never get them. Act now. There is never any time but now, and there never will be any time but now. If you are ever to begin to make ready for the reception of what you want, you must begin now.

And your action, whatever it is, must most likely be in your present business or employment, and must be upon the persons and things in your present environment.

You cannot act where you are not; you cannot act where you have been, and you cannot act where you are going to be; you can act only where you are.

Do not bother as to whether yesterday's work was well done or ill done; do today's work well.

Do not try to do tomorrow's work now; there will be plenty of time to do that when you get to it.

Do not try, by occult or mystical means, to act on people or things that are out of reach.

Do not wait for a change of environment before you act; get a change of environment by action.

You can so act upon the environment in which you are now, as to cause yourself to be transferred to a better environment.

Hold with faith and purpose the vision of yourself in the better environment, but act upon your present environment with all your heart, and with all your strength, and with all your mind.

Do not spend any time in day dreaming or castle building; hold to the one vision of what you want, and act NOW.

Do not cast about seeking some new thing to do, or some strange, unusual or remarkable action to perform as a first step toward getting rich. It is probable that your actions, at least for some time to come, will be those you have been performing for some time past; but you are to begin now to perform these actions in the Certain Way, which will surely make you rich.

If you are engaged in some business and feel that it is not the right one for you, do not wait until you get into the right business before you begin to act.

Do not feel discouraged, or sit down and lament because you are misplaced. No man was ever so misplaced but that he could find the right place, and no man every became so involved in the wrong business but that he could get into the right business.

Hold the vision of yourself in the right business, with the purpose to get into it, and the faith that you will get into it, and are getting into it; but ACT in your present business. Use your present business as the means of getting a better one, and use your present environment as the means of getting into a better one. Your vision of the right business, if held with faith and purpose, will cause the Supreme to move the right business toward you; and your action, if performed in the Certain Way, will cause you to move toward the business.

If you are an employee, or wage earner, and feel that you must change places in order to get what you want, do not "project" your thoughts into space and rely on it to get you another job. It will probably fail to do so.

Hold the vision of yourself in the job you want, while you ACT with faith and purpose on the job you have, and you will certainly get the job you want.

Your vision and faith will set the creative force in motion to bring it toward you, and your action will cause the forces in your own environment to move you toward the place you want.

I really like this one "You cannot act where you are not; you cannot act where you have been, and you cannot act where you are going to be; you can act only where you are." How true! How simple! But do we do that consistantly? Hmmm.
I also liked this part, "Hold the vision of yourself in the job you want, while you ACT with faith and purpose on the job you have, and you will certainly get the job you want." I always tell my girls to be the best YOU, you can be and always work hard at wherever you are. What if the ONE person who will be intrumental in leading you to the job of your dreams walks in and you are complaining and dissatisfied? What if you are envisioning the perfect mate and they meet you and all you do is bad-mouth your ex? If we are being the best we can be at WHATEVER we are doing..whether it's grocery shopping, waiting for the car to be fixed, riding the bus, playing with kids, making up a Big Mac at McDonalds..it doesn't matter..it's attitude!!! The sad thing is, so many folks are focusing on the negative and it show. You WILL stand out if you're not. THAT moves people forward, does it not?

Very cool. Thank you Shirley. Thanks Mr. Wattles. I enjoyed the thoughts that today's post brought up. Lots to learn (whew!) and your help is appreciated!

I like it too Karla, there is so much good stuff in this post!

I personally think I spend too much time in my head and not enough time in my hands... and even when I am doing - I'm usually mostlly someplace else.

The now moment - wow - how often am I actually in it, I wonder...
