The universe is an abundant place. If you’ve studied personal development, then you’ve read that there is enough to go around. At HeartCore Business we know there is more than enough to go around!
And while you may understand the principles of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Abundance, you may have wondered what the difference is between people who seem to receive abundance, and people who don’t.
Did you know there are three central differences that separate the successful from the struggling? Here are the true keys to long-term success…
#1 Let your desires take a backseat to your mission.
The Bible says your own desires must be secondary to God’s plan for your life. In business, this means that you sometimes have to be of service, and put off your immediate desires in order to live your mission fully.
Even as you’re being a worker, you must have a heart of generosity. You will have days when commitments for your business get in the way of what you want to be doing in that moment.
Maybe you are stuck staying up late executing a task that someone on your team dropped the ball on. All you want to do is have a long, relaxing dinner and go to bed. Don’t get mad; don’t get frustrated. Remember that you are working to reap your harvest – and that takes daily sacrifice.
Work through the tough moments. Find ways to be of service, even when you might rather be doing something else. Live your mission. And then reap the harvest. It will be greater than you ever imagined.
#3 Surrender to living your mission.
The Bible says, “You must take up the daily cross.” Although many modern-day Christians think of the cross as a burden to bear, when the Bible was written, this phrase meant being willing to die in order to follow Jesus. It’s called “dying to self,” and it’s a call to absolute surrender.
What does this mean for business? It means to be in absolute service. In so many cases, as business owners, we’re not ready to serve.
We complain about having too much. We complain about not having enough. We complain and complain and complain, and when it’s not convenient, we say, “I’m not ready.”
That is where the non-workers stop serving. But you’re a worker. Which means that even when you feel like you’re not ready, or when it feels inconvenient, you will continue to serve. You will continue to live your mission, share your message, and build your movement.
#3 Lose yourself: Relinquish control of your life to faith.
In the Bible, Jesus says, “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?”
In other words, the only way to truly find yourself—and true happiness and fulfillment—is to give up that need to control. In order to find happiness and fulfillment, you must have faith! You must have faith in your team. You must have faith in yourself as you do the work and follow the process and the formula.
Do the work. Live the mission. Follow the plan. This game of life is about fulfillment.
The best fulfillment you’re ever going to have is the blessing of having people to serve. Serve them through your work, your mission. Work from a place of generosity and you’ll live your mission. And when you do, you’ll reap the harvest.
