Looking for a Job? Think Prosperity Gospel!

Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker



I found this at Forbes.com:

"Entrepreneur contributor Joel Brown noted that high achievers tend to set firm goals and visualize a successful outcome: 'Ninety-five percent of the successful achievers I have interviewed practice writing down their goals, plans, or visions for success on a regular basis.'"


Are you writing down your goals, visualizing them, and doing what's necessary to bring them about?

Sure you are. That's why you're succeeding. That's why the good jobs keep showing up on your doorstep. That's why you have the choice of any and all opportunities that drop into your lap.

Right?

If not, allow me to recommend some of the best reads in the goal setting biz at this web site:



The so called Prosperity Gospel states, basically, that if you can see it in your mind, feel it in your bones, and move your feet in its direction, you are bound to succeed. But don't take my word for it. Read some of the materials, or, if you have already, put them to work for you.

There are lots of jobs and career paths available now. And not enough folks to fill them. 

You've never had a better chance to improve whatever you want to improve.

As long as you believe you can, that is.

You do.

Right?

How to Discover Your Truth

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

Your truth will set you free...


You want the truth? Can you handle it? Let's see...

There are only three relevant questions.* Answer these and the rest is simply detail. Ready?

  1. What is it you want to do, professionally, personally, spiritually?
  2. What is stopping you? Obstacles, people, things, philosophies, opinions, stuff...
  3. What are you doing about it? Action, networking, moving around, interviewing, meditating, exercising, changing your mind...
Whatever your answers, that's the truth. The gurus will wince, tell you there's more. There isn't.

You win, or you lose, by how you face your own truth. Not mine, not theirs, YOURS.

And you've been at it all your life. 

The final secret: Change your truth, change your life.

*These questions suggested by Richard N. Bolles in his popular book 'What Color Is Your Parachute?' 2017 Ed.

The Five Secrets of the Lucky Life

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker


Right on target!

Your luck, whether good or bad, depends almost completely upon your view of the world. 

Disappointed? Don't be. This truth is the beginning of a whole new experience for you.
I used to think that luck was a chance-y thing, that it happened or didn't happen totally by accident, randomly. I was wrong. Still, when I first discovered the five secrets you're about to discover, I was skeptical. That is, until I put them to work. That's the key. Put these five secrets to work for you and your luck can change almost in an instant. Ready? Here goes...
(Oh, one thing... Keep an open mind here. This is not some woo woo parlor trick. This process--or system if you want to call it that--works. Read the list, let it register with you, and you'll understand why
  1. Act lucky. That's right. Act. "What do you mean by that, Richard? Act?" Yes. Here's how you do it. If you had everything you wanted right now, how would you act? Get that picture clearly in your mind. Start acting like that. No excuses. I know the BMW isn't in the driveway yet, but so what? Act like it is anyway. In reality, this is more about mindset. How would you be in your mind, in your emotions, if what you wanted was already in your life? Answer that, act on it. Make it a game. Something to ponder here: If you cannot see yourself in the picture, how can you expect to show up in it? Act like you're in it already. Soon, there you'll be--smack in the middle of it.

  2. Open your life, your mind, and your heart to receive. If you continually complain that you don't have what you want, your life is miserable, you just can't catch a break, then you're not open to receiving what you say you want. Open up to the possibility that your desire, your dream, wants you as much as you want it. No more feeling sorry for yourself. Self-pity is a big block to receiving your good, perhaps even the biggest block. "If you say you're not receiving, you won't be receiving." Richard Kent Matthews

You'll Never FIND Happiness, But You CAN Create It!

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

 

 You're writing the script. Might as well be the STAR!

“All change results from a change in meaning.” Margaret Wheatley

The number of books, CD sets, and pop therapists who say they can give you the roadmap to happiness is staggering. And I have read at least most of them over the last 30 years. Some have interesting things to suggest, most are pure crap, simple as that. Many are out to make a buck or increase their patient load, or build a mail order business. Some have your genuine interests at heart but it’s not always easy to tell which ones do, which don’t.

But…

They almost all make the whole thing ‘way too difficult, or simplistic, or even radical. “Follow my plan and you’ll be walking on a cloud by sundown.” Yeah, right. Three hundred pages to wade through and at the end, “Now, what did I just read? What am I supposed to do? Too many rules. This is too frustrating!”

Actually, creating happiness is not all that difficult, simplistic, or radical. It’s common sense, really. Read this little group of suggestions for yourself and see if you don’t agree that it’s not only possible, it’s highly probable that by applying even a portion of them, you’ll find yourself feeling a heck of a lot better. And all in only 740 or so words. Good deal, eh?
