A long time ago back in the late 1970’s early 80’s there was a buzz going around of a new type of thinking it was called Psycho-cybernetics. The guru of the day was a fellow called Bob Proctor, Bob by the way is still giving lectures on this subject under the name “THE SECRET”, change your thinking and change your life.
Tony Robbins reworked the message back then as well calling it NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) simply put if you do the things that successful people do it will only follow that you too will be successful.
The Canadian equivalent of these two is a man named Brian Tracy, who was originally from Newfoundland, his message is looking at your brain as a super-conductive computer that can be programmed to higher achievement using the Power of Attraction or you become what you think about Most of the time.
The message they all share is a fancy tap dance around a physical law of the Universe called Newton’s Third Law:
Newton’s Third Law: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
Here opposite does not mean if you are being positive a negative thing will happen, rather if you put your energy and intention out to the world, the world will respond back. The amount of return on this output depends on Newton’s Second Law:
Newton’s Second Law: Force on an object = mass x acceleration
In everyday language, the more you try with strong intention the greater the return back.
There is no magic to these ideas, no special education required or doctorate needed. All you need is Action. Universal laws are just that Universal, they affect everything in the Universe. Every particle of your being is hardwired to follow these laws. As a matter of fact every law of Physics we humans have discovered also applies to you; it’s the way the Creator designed it.
Sales people for large or small companies live by these principles and use them to make themselves successful, rich or both, so why then aren’t we, the Artists of the world, doing the same? I say this in a general way because although there are many successful Artists of all disciplines the majority of us are working away doing what we do for little to no money.
I believe that we are individually and collectively still believing that the mystique of the starving artists is the model we should follow. Perhaps we, on some level, feel that a rich Artist is a contradiction in itself. To be true to your art is to suffer for it, and maybe if we are lucky we will be noticed after we are dead. Well, I am here to tell you that is a load of Crap! We are what the greatest Civilizations are made of, Paintings, Sculpture, Music, Theatre and Writing. We are more than just doodlers and strummers, we are the very essence of what rises us above all other creatures on this planet. What a beautiful responsibility!
So you better believe that you deserve all the success and riches that come with such a responsibility after all think about what they pay the Prime Minister of Canada and he just runs a country, we have been given the task of changing the world for the better.
If you don’t care to change a thing about your present situation that’s ok too, but if you want to live well and not merely survive then stay tuned I will share with you some of “THE SECRETS” of success as told by those that did it.
Collective Assignment: Everyday say out loud to yourself or others that “All Artists deserve to make lots of Money”
Perhaps, if we can change the vibration that follows us about being poor to being deserving the world will change with us.
