I just listened to this Earl Nightingale talk… eleven minutes or so.
I had never heard it…
It struck me how everything was invented so many times in history… and however many times it was invented, like how to get from where you are to being in the top few percent of the world, millions of people can listen to you and they will miss it.
Why? Because, I think, because opportunity comes in work clothes… Opportunity looks like work. And what people hope opportunity is is like a windfall… it befalls you… lol.
Enjoy the video. Even if you miss it, it is fun to listen.
In matters of the spirit a little goes a long way.
One of the most puzzling things about Kabbalah has to do with the proportions of worldly to spiritual. It says it is 1%, as opposed to the 99% spiritual. Therefore if you do your job in the 1% reality, then the 99% reality will to its job. It is like putting in $1 to a self improvement fund, and your company would match it with $99. Good deal, isn’t it.
It may be a good deal, but very few do it.
Why? Because your mindset has to be certainty, instead of waiting for it to come, or hoping, or wishing, or at the other extreme, thinking that you can only count on yourself. Or strong desire… or hoping… or “faith”… or praying… or all the happy horseshit gurus teach.
