What a week this is going to be, right?
Opportunities, ideas, new ways of looking at things...
You create your Spiritual Success today!
Spiritual Success? This is success you achieve from following spiritual principles to happiness that lead to your worldly and spiritual success.
Your success begins with LITTLE THINGS
Almost twenty years ago, I remember wanting some chicken. So I ordered a salad and some broiled chicken. When salad came, I added chicken to salad creating my first main course salad. I learned this healthy idea from Marilyn Diamond's bestseller, Fit for Life. A thought occurred to me . . .
Most people don't do that.
The thought of adding "high water content foods" to their meals is ridiculous to most people...
So they buy all kinds of diet books and join a health club, hire a personal trainer but still don't drop any weight.
Before I go any further, this discussion isn't about weight loss or exercise...
.... It’s about doing little things to reach your spiritual success… your enlightenment.
Clients always want to know how they can be more effective. Well, once you're pointed in right direction, it comes down to little tiny decisions that on their own don't seem like they make a bit of difference. Like putting your chicken in your salad and not having any bread or carbohydrates with meal.
Does one main course salad make such a huge difference in your health?
Of course not.
But you've got to keep big picture in mind & keep it BIG!
You know old metaphor about tree that took a thousand swipes with ax to be felled? The big question is which blow knocked down tree, 1,000th or 999 before it? Or many before that? Which weakened it enough?
You can't get where you're going without taking each and every step. It's little things you do each day that make a difference. That's why I call this Enlightenment 101. It's easy. Just take little steps.
