We will take a look at 4 of the misconceptions that the vast majority of us believe and the major warning that when followed will help you to create abundance in your life.

Let’s get started with the first big “lie”;

 

Knowledge is Power.

In 1597, at the dawn of the age of scientific realism, Francis Bacon wrote “Knowledge is power”.

It sounds good, but it is an incomplete truth.

Education, knowledge and understanding does empower by enhancing potential; but it is the application of knowledge that produces results.

It is not enough to know how things work; it is necessary to put that knowledge to work. The circumstances of our lives are not changed by our knowledge, but by the use we make of it.

If I have an engineering degree and, in my travels come to a river, knowing how to build a bridge will not get me across the river. I will need to actually build the bridge to get to the other side.

You can study the science of success for your whole life, but if you do not put into practice what you know, you will not create any measurable success.

It is true that the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake can be intellectually rewarding; but knowledge only becomes valuable when we make use of it for some practical purpose.

 

Time is money

It’s funny how we perceive money. Not 1 in 10 people can tell you where money comes from, what it is and what it is good for, let alone  how and why we get it.

The most common error that most people make is to equate money with wealth. That is, they believe that if one has a lot of money, one is wealthy. The following little story will show clearly that money does
not equate to wealth.

Street people are today a very common site in our wealthy society.  However, when I was a teenager, growing up in Calgary, there was only one visible street person. A man, who had lost both legs in WW2, sat, on his modified mechanic’s dolly (kind of a wide skateboard), in front of a downtown department store every day, begging. He looked pitiful, no legs, dressed in rags, no wheelchair, no sense of
usefulness or purpose. People gave him money every day.

One day, he died. Several hundred thousand dollars was found in his squalid and rundown home (given to him by the Government when he returned home from the war many years before). No relatives were
found to give the money to. No friends were found to bury him.

Lots of money and no wealth at all.

You probably know this already: money is nothing more than an agreed medium of exchange that allows people to trade one perceived thing of value for another perceived thing of value. You trade your sweat,
energy, time, creativity, productivity, skill or talent for an agreed upon amount of money and then you trade agreed upon amounts of your money for those goods and services that provide you with survival,
security, comfort, pleasure, self-esteem, self-actualization and personal fulfillment.

Money is the agreed upon mechanism that facilitates the flow of wealth. You trade your wealth (value) as a human being (even if it is as basic as your physical labor) for some money that you then trade for something of value (wealth) like food and shelter.

The more value that you are able to create and contribute, the more money you can gain and the more things of value you can accumulate and enjoy (be wealthy).

Nothing that you can accumulate, however, is of any value unless you have the time freedom to enjoy it. Many people often make the mistake to trade ever greater amounts of their ever dwindling time in order
to get more money. Some stop here, just keeping the money without actually exchanging it for something of value. A poor trade, indeed.

Many do trade the money for valuables like a nice home filled with all the modern conveniences and toys. But how valuable is a top-of-the-line stereo system and 1,000 great music CDs in your fancy home, if you have no time to enjoy them because you are forever working (trading your time) to get more money?

Since the most valuable thing you will ever have is your time, the more time you have to sacrifice (give away) to get money to have the time to enjoy what life has to offer, the less wealthy you are. The
less time you need to give away in order to have the time to do the things you want to do, the wealthier you are.

If you have managed to create a situation (the circumstances) where what you want to do with your time also produces the money to allow you to do what you want to do, then you are truly wealthy.

If what you do with your time to produce money is not what you want to do with your life (your time on planet earth), then you are impoverished, no matter how much money you make/earn.

Let’s say that what you want to do with your time (life) is create music. Let’s imagine that your music is so good that millions of people around the world buy your Cds. You end up with a lot of money.
But is that the true measure of your wealth? No. The true measure of your wealth is that you have the complete time freedom to spend your life (and your money) doing what you’d like to be doing; i.e. making
music (and whatever else suits you on any given day). Quoting a famous wealthy musician called Bob Dylan… “What’s money? A man is a success (wealthy) if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at
night and in between does what he wants to do.”

How did you gain this extraordinary wealth? Simply by providing real (or perceived) value to the lives of other people. Want more valuables? Become more valuable. Or, provide more value to other peoples’ lives. Spend your time being a contributor. Your true wealth is not measured by what you are able to accumulate, but by what you are enabled to contribute. Become more valuable and you will be able to do or create more value and will end up having more valuables.

The amount of money that passes through your hands is just a measure of how open you are to the natural flow of abundance, the exchange of one form of wealth for another.

Never make the mistake of equating money to wealth. Your wealth is determined by who you are, what you can contribute (create) and the amount of time freedom you have to enjoy your life and all it has to
offer. The how of life may be complex, but the why is simple: it is to revere, relish and contribute. If you choose to be free to do those three things with all your heart, you are indeed wealthy. To
what purpose do you journey through life? Why do you do what you do with your time?

Time is money? No! Time is wealth. Spend it wisely. Waste or squander your time and no amount of money will ever buy it back.

Some questions to ask yourself;

1. What would you do with your life if money were not an issue?

2. What value are you creating with your time?

3. What value are you trading your time for?

4. Are you reverent? Sacred?

5. Are you relishing? Enjoying?

6. Are you contributing? Creating?

7. Are you wealthy?

 

 

Be realistic

“Come on now. Be realistic.” How many times have you heard that piece of advice? It is said with such authority that you could almost believe that being realistic is one of the great human virtues.

The truth is, however, that all human advancement began as an ideal held in someone’s imagination. It is the idealists who create, explore, invent and change the world. To be realistic is to limit your potential to self-actuate and to create the success you desire.

Realists are the creatures of event and circumstance. Idealists are the creators of event and circumstance.

The artist, the inventor, the explorer, the entrepreneur are idealists. These are the people who create the world that the realists get to live in.

All the realistic people who today travel on vacation to escape the drudgery of daily reality in an airplane owned by Virgin Airlines can do so because the Wright brothers refused to be realistic and Richard
Branson refused to be realistic.

So, the next time you are describing your dreams and someone tells you to be realistic, be sure to ignore that advice. Create, instead, your perfect ideals and hold on to the fact that they are the greater reality than the mere event and circumstance that limit the potential of the realistic person. Dare to dream.

 

The Law of Attraction

Ever since the great book and the little movie called The Secret came out, many people have been led to believe that The Law of Attraction will somehow magically bring you what you want.

This, of course, is not true. Yes, there are forces at work in the universe that have been called the Law of Attraction; but the allegory of Aladdin’s Genie extolling that “your wish is my command” needs to be balanced with the old proverb, “If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride”.

We all know in our hearts that simply wishing for something does not make it happen.

We also know that somehow certain people do have their wishes come true and sometimes prayers are answered. So how can this be?

What kind of universal law works sometimes and not other times; works for some people and not for others?

The fact is that it does work all the time and it does equally apply to all people.

If it was not universally true, then it could not be called a Law. It is only an incomplete understanding and the lack of correct application that makes it seem as if it is not working.

What is this Law of Attraction and how does it work?

Simply put it is this: like energy is attracted to like energy.

We know that everything in the entire universe is composed of patterns of energy. This energy vibrates in certain ways to produce wave forms that collapse to become the fundamental sub-atomic quantum
particles that make up all matter, all things.

How and why quantum waves collapse to become particles that make up the stuff of the universe is a wondrous understanding, too long to go into here in any detail.

Let’s just say that it is the focus of attention of an aware consciousness that acts to create manifest reality. Modern science and ancient metaphysics both agree on this.

How can you get this Law of Attraction to work in your favor? How can you use your understanding of it to produce real world results?

The simple explanation is that you do not attract what you want; you attract that which is most alike how you are being, how you are behaving energetically.

What determines you energetic output?

It is a vibratory mixture that includes your predominant and repetitive thoughts, feelings, actions, expectations and intentions.

So, if you want to know what your energetic output is, ask yourself…

What am I thinking?

What am I feeling?

What am I doing?

What am I expecting?

Why?

You will attract and be attracted to what is most alike that mix.

Yes, what you think about, you bring about; BUT ONLY when your actions are in harmony with your ideals. Actions are critical.
Actions produce results. Thinking or wishing alone does not produce tangible results.

The Law of attraction is about behavior, the behavior of energy in the universe and your behavior. If you want to know what you have been attracting, look at your results. If you want to attract different things, events and circumstances, then you must change.

Change your choice of mental output. Change your choice of emotional output. Change your expectations. Change what you do. Change your behavior and you will change what you attract and are attracted to.

The Law of attraction says that your choices determine your results. Such is your freedom and your power.

He has a background as civil engineer and geoscientist. He has worked mainly within the oil and gas industry from the mid 1980s. He has written a few fictional novels as well as being the author of some professional litterature within oil and gas sector, he is now an editor of some web sites.
