What do you want?
I’m talking to you about more than mere survival, which is only the means we have used of “priming the pump” to help you wake up and start thinking about your own self-interest.
Now that your eyes are wide open, and you have accepted the responsibility that you are the only person who can deliver the good you desire, have you taken the time to define what you want?
Personally, I want a hot tub.
I just love sitting in a pool of bubbling, aromatic hot water.
I love the floating feeling the jets provide, and the relaxation the heated water provide my skin and muscle.
I love closing my eyes in total relaxation, ensconced in the luxury of a bath no King before the modern age ever experienced.
That is only one of my material goals.
I’m writing about it for 2 reasons.
First, to make it real for me. Thinking about that acquisition gets me fired up for continuing my work in creating the revenue necessary for that kind of luxury. (You see, I am the kind of person who pays his bills first.)
And by thinking about that luxury and its dependence on my effort, I sharpen my effort.
The second reason I’m writing about this is I want to encourage you to do the same.
What do you want?
What do you want so specifically that you know what it is, what it looks and feels like and most of all, what is required of you to make it real?
Can you see how the hidden philosophy – making your self-interest your first obligation – is the means to get what you want?
Can you see how working with these ideas will help you dust off old dreams and imagine new ones?
Can you feel how connecting your mind with your material reality serves to wake you up form whatever form of slumber has allowed you to coast along, hoping for the best and rationalizing the worst?
Can you get started today, writing down some specific goal of your own – and simultaneously thinking about what you can do to bring it to life?
I hope so.
And to help you let me recap the 4 pillars of the hidden philosophy:
- Survival – the first breath you took in this world was an expression of your will to live. Every breath you have taken since then has had true same motivation whether or not you remember what is is for.
- Self-interest – once you get reconnected to your survival instinct, it becomes apparent that if you are going to dedicate yourself to your basic existence, then every dimension of self-interest is a logical extension of your will to live.
- Responsibility – when you accept that your self-interest is the right to his of your efforts, you immediately accept responsibility for all your results. And thus, face each new day with the idea that if it to be it is up to thee.
- Action – When you have spent some time thinking about your survival, and your desire to. Expand your self-interest and your commitment to being responsible for your outcomes, taking action often occurs as if an idling engine with enormous power was suddenly thrust into gear You will find yourself clearing obstacles out of the way with a brush of the mind and diving right in to the core activities that deliver the goods – ensuring your survival and glorifying your self-interest so that you have everything you desire!
The hidden philosophy is simple to understand and put into practice.
The hard part remains bringing your mind back to this basic truth, over and over again, until it becomes your normal mode of thinking.
