SUCCESS AND THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT by Mark Victor Hansen
Success is achieved or lost, depending on how you see yourself. You have the ability to control your success simply by determining whether or not you are truly worthy of it. How you feel about yourself is all that is standing in the way of your amazing results. Maybe you're saying, "Wow! That's it, Mark? That's all I have to do – love myself? That's easy!" Not so fast. You may think you love yourself. You may pump yourself up in the morning by looking in the mirror and saying, "Go get 'em, Tiger." But what you think you believe and what you actually believe can be two totally different things. Look at your past and present results. Are they astounding? Do you have everything you've ever dreamed of? Have you reached your full potential? Are you fulfilled and satisfied? Chances are the answer to most of those questions is no. And that's okay, because I'm going to show you how to transform any remnant of a negative self-image into an amazing, positive self-image for earth-shattering, mind-blowing, successful results.
It is detrimental to your success and to your well being to make negative statements about yourself. Why? It's all about the law of cause and effect.
There are two words there – cause/effect. A lot of the time we only see the effect. We don't look behind it and see the cause.
Whatever the effect is, the cause is identical. If you go into a business meeting and you believe that there is no way you're going to get the deal, you've sealed your fate. You have become the writer of your own self-fulfilling prophecy. You said you weren't going to get the deal, you believed it was impossible and so you proved yourself right. Why did this happen? The law of cause and effect, that's why.
The CAUSE of the unsuccessful meeting was that you consciously thought failure was going to be the outcome. Chances are you said it in your mind and out loud, too. That repetitive negative self-talk sunk down into your subconscious and became a belief. Your mind now knows that failure will be the result of this meeting. There is no room for success. Your conscious mind knew it, and your subconscious mind accepted it because of the repetitive self-talk, and now that failure is sent out through your body language and speaking voice into the Universe to ENSURE that you will fail.
You determined the results of the meeting before you walked into the room! That's the bad news.
The good news is that this cause and effect behavior can work just as easily with positive self-talk. If you know you have a meeting in a few days, you can talk yourself into success by ACTING AS IF you already have the deal. It's just as easy as being negative, so why not create the positive results you want? Every time you think of the meeting you can say, "I am so grateful that my meeting is going to be a phenomenal success for me. I am worthy of getting the deal and radiate success wherever I go." You create the cause and the effect. You determine whether you succeed or fail. You write the ending to the story – be it happy or sad. Which ending do you want?
"You are where you are because you want to be there. If you want to be somewhere else, you'll change."
