Last week I said that I would share with you the secret to achieving success today.
Well... here it is today and I've found my notes and some internet sites you may find interesting. But that will be later...
Many people who try and try... repeatedly... to achieve their goals and fail... repeatedly... are caving in on their own fears and are not preparing and acting on achieving their goals properly.
Most of them fail because they do not have enough faith in themselves... have not consulted or partnered with all who are capable to achieve the goals... nor have they established a pattern to follow to accomplish their goals.
One of the ancient writings (I read years ago) gives great insight into the secret pattern for achieving success. Here are some excerpts... (do you know anyone who may need to read this?):
"The Devil is ever a God of refusal."
"For the Wise, Heaven is the Supreme Reason, and Hell is Folly."
"the imagination, abandoned to all the caprices of over-excited and diseased nerves, fills itself with Monsters and absurd visions."
"But learn to triumph thyself over Fear by Wisdom, and the Spirits will descend from Heaven to serve thee."
"Happy is he who comprehendeth the Letters and the Numbers."
"The Schema is one, its columns are two, its power is three, its form is four, its reflection giveth eight, which multiplied by three giveth unto thee the twenty-four Thrones of Wisdom."
The Key of Solomon
I interpret the basic pattern to be this:
Schema = Thought or Idea
Columns = Support and Direction
Power = Bond or Attraction
Form = Plan or Pattern
Reflection = Duplication or Reproduction
Wisdom = Past + Present + Future and Knowledge Applied & Adjusted
The same pattern applies in biology:
Schema = Beginning > Nucleus
Columns = Structure > Double Helix
Power = Bond > Ester
Form = Shape > Chromosome
Reflection = Replication > Reproduction
Wisdom = Reasoning > Past-Present-Future
Finally, this pattern applies to achieving your project development goals:
Schema = Thought or Idea > Conceptualization & Project Scope
Columns = Support and Direction > Schematic Design & Idealistic Principles
Power = Bond or Attraction > Design Development & Team of Experts Needed
Form = Plan or Pattern > Construction Documents & Business Plan
Reflection = Duplication or Reproduction > Construction & Operations
Wisdom = Past + Present + Future > Maintenance, Expansion, and Modifications
However, there are other factors that affect the balance of achieving your goals... such as remembering and adjusting your actions and reactions regarding the positive and negative mindset for achieving anything:
Positive Attitudes v.s. Negative Attitudes:
Unity - Intelligence
defeats... Revolt - Anarchy - War
Wisdom - Harmony - Reason
defeats... Material - Evil - Decay
Understanding - Strong - Ideas
defeats... Conceal - Inertia - Mystery
Mercy - Beneficence - Imagination
defeats... Disturbed - Impurity
Justice - Zeal - Chastisement
defeats... Wrath - Sedition - Incendiary
Beauty - Harmony - Judgment
defeats... Disputers - Prejudice
Victory - Progress - Life - Sensibility
defeats... Death - Regression - Deterioration
Eternal Order - Inner-sense
defeats... Jugglers - Chaos - Disorder
Fecundity - Abundance - True Ideas
defeats... Debauchery - Fears - Limitations
Forms - Virile - Purity
defeats... Wicked - Impurity
This information is just a part (a major part) of the puzzle that will allow you to organize the chaos that tend to arise while working towards accomplishing your goals.
All I'm doing is sharing wisdom that has been passed down through the centuries from mouth to ear... before it was committed to the written word.
It is up to you to take the original words... the interpretations and similarities and patterns I've pointed out and adapt them for your project... so you may accomplish your goals.
How these secrets relate to your goals varies according to what you want to accomplish. When you need help converting your ideas into your plans for success... and you get to a hurdle or hiccup or a dead-end that seems to be preventing you from achieving what you want... ask me for help... and we'll discuss your situation.
I appreciate anything you wish to share about how these factors influence whether or not you succeed to achieve your goal.
Until next time...
