Nicely said in a different way. The more value you create for humanity, the more prosperous you get.
The Greatest Success Breakthrough
by Randy Gage
Millions of people strive for success, happiness and prosperity. And these are many parts of that equation. But here is the single biggest breakthrough in the process…
Understanding and accepting that the space you occupy in the world is in direct proportion to the value you offer others, the mindset you offer it with, and what you believe you deserve.
Every great teacher spoke of this in one way or another. The Buddha and Jesus, Napoleon Hill, Charles Fillmore and Ernest Holmes. They used different words or different languages, but the essence of the message is the same.
Your health, income, relationships, inner peace, net worth and virtually all manifestations of prosperity are all based upon this formula. Let me state it again:
The space you occupy in the world is in direct proportion to the value you offer others, the mindset you offer it with, and what you believe you deserve.
The moment you understand and accept that – is the most important success breakthrough you will ever have. Because this is the moment you move on from victim-hood, leave behind blame, and take responsibility for your own destiny.
Randy - I get excited about this and then always fall at the first fence of the "value you offer others". I chose to stay at home to bring up children rather than continue my paid career as a lawyer and quite frankly now feel that I offer nothing of value to anyone! Then I beat myself up with telling myself to take responsibility for my choices and yet can't get rid of this thought that I have been living a parasitic existence, I should be working and I've wasted my talents and that the only real work is paid. AAAAhhhhh! Elizabeth
you are SOOOOOOOO VALUABLE! I know many women going through what you feel they amaze me; and have even birthed business while in your situation. But regardless, I observe my mom friends today with nothing but admiration.I would love to connect you to some networks that could serve you I think and give you a community to realize what greatness you are bringing to so many.
I love kids and wish I had my own, but am going through the VALUE thing like you looking for work as I LOVE TO MAKE A DIFFERNCE, CONTRIBUTE, to a bigger whole........so to me, you are bringing WAY more value in every moment of every day, enriching the lives of those you love. this just hit so hard with a sense of OMG! she must know, she is SO SO VALUABLE! SO!
Elizabeth! It ain't over yet! You are in the process of developing your (saleable) Value. Sweetie, I was where you are... (who me? valuable? no...darn, Aaaaaarrrrrrggghhhhh........)
Now my kids are grown. I have muchmuchmuchmuch value to bring to the world. I'm in the process of developing my system for doing so.
The world of 2025 is going to need YOU, Elizabeth, as much and more than your children need you now. I'll pave the trail for you as much as I can.
Thanks, Randy, for paving my trail.
@Randy_Gage Yeah. So, why do you go around sayin' it's a sin to be poor?
@Randy_Gage Randy I understand what you are saying now, and I think if your not following the rules of prosperity, which many of them are the "Golden Rule", you most likely are hurting yourself and others.
The only reason, I don't like it that you use Charles Fillmore's quote is because "poor" and "sin" have so many different meanings. However, I think you and Charles Fillmore are saying it with the best of intentions and to help others, and I think it will.
Here is the down side though, because it means something very derogatory to many, it might not be the best quote to put out there. That quote could lead to more shame and stigma for an already vulnerable group. Although, it might help some of them, I would err on the cautious side. Anyway, if that quote sticks to you, I am afraid those who don't know Unity's message will not see what a generous and forgiving heart you really have. :)
@Annieb Because it's a sin to be poor.

How shall we phrase that? "...what you believe you CAN earn" ? Doesn't quite work for me.
"Earn" doesn't quite cover the need we (many of us) have to Get Over our feelings of not-deserving. Those feelings are what Randy is talking about; those feelings are why our souls are suffering.
Compassion tells us us that Part of the reason for all this strident racket about "Deserving our Rights..." is nothing more than a compulsion arising out of the secret, unrecognized sense that one in fact does NOT deserve. Maybe if I yell it at the world loud enough, my inner self - my soul if you will - may begin to accept that I do deserve to enjoy life's glorious abundance?
