Take this same mindset and apply it to spiritual communities — most want quick enlightenment but don’t want to work for it, want quick healing fixes but don’t want to go through the pain, want to become masters but want to bypass all the mindset work, want to become abundant but expect it to be handed on a silver platter.
Do you agree with me that this sort of mindset not only creates social problems but spiritual problems as well for humanity?
But there is hope, there is a minority of people inside or outside spiritual communities who see the value in — steady paced work with great results, working on mindset consistently over time to become more abundant, appreciate big value by being willing to pay for what it is worth, becoming masters through work, work and more work on their mindsets, understanding that healing is a process and sometimes going through the pain process is part of the healing. It is this minority of people who make a big difference in the world.
Why do I say this? If you study the stories of the most successful people whether it is in the business, financial, personal, or spiritual arena you will see that they all operate in the way I have stated in the above paragraph. As much as we would like to say that everyone is equal, these successful people really are a cut above the rest. It is not because they have been given more blessings than others by God, but it is simply because they have adopted the right mindset.
The people who will change the world are those with the right mindset. People who are able to make commitments and keep them, making sure they follow through without turning back. They do it not just for self, but to set examples to others that “yes, it can be done”, they do it to share their love, knowledge, wisdom and inspiration. While others look on and say it is not possible, they make the impossible possible. They change the world because they know they can.
They also do it in right ways and with the right attitude in the most empowering way allowing others to be empowered mentally, emotionally, physically (this includes financially) and sometimes spiritually.
If you are thinking of changing your corner of the world, ask yourself if you have the right mindset. Have you adopted the abundant mindset yet? The abundant mindset is a universal principle, it is none religious and is not from a cult. (A cult operates from poverty consciousness) It is not hocus pocus but based on the basic principle of Creation, Reproduction and Multiplication (CRM – a topic I will expand on in another article).
The funny thing about mindset is that the minute you start thinking, oh these successful people should share more of what they have with the world, it shows that you have got the wrong thinking! Because it is your judgment towards them that is limiting you and putting you in a small box. The principle of CRM can never work on a person who makes judgments on others based on their limited worldview. Those who operate from CRM have an ever expanding worldview.
Those who will change the world are also open to change. So if you truly want to serve the world and want to start by changing your corner of the world, you must study the life principles of the successful minority and apply them into everything you do.
The ‘what’s in it for me’ mentality has to go, it is but a small sacrifice to make to become one of the minority leaders to change the world.
