Six Powerful Spiritual Teachings From Osho’s Book:God’s Got A Thing About You

Published

on

Osho’s Book, God’s Got A Thing About You, provides a dialogue between a master and his disciple. The disciple asks his master many spiritual questions which the master answers wisely.

The master provides wonderful spiritual teachings about God, the ego, anxiety, dealing with negativity, and so on. The book is enlightening, and reading it will enable you to realize many secrets to spiritual enlightenment.

Here, are 6 wonderful teachings Osho provides in the Book

  1. Darkness Disappears When We Discover Our Light

Everything in the universe including us is made of light because matter is condensed light. Osho teaches that our world brightens when we discover this light because we will start perceiving everything including hardships as a good and necessary part of our existence.

Therefore, we perceive some things as good and others bad, because we have not yet discovered our inner light which eliminates the barriers of our perception.

  1. Work On Your Inner Self and the External Conditions Will Work In Your Favour

Never become too concerned with your external conditions because you don’t possess the power to completely change them. Instead, put all your energy in the inner journey, and what you want will come to you with minimal effort.

As Jesus puts it, ‘seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be given unto you.’ When asked where the kingdom of God is, Jesus replied. ‘it is within you.’ Jesus also knew that working on your inner self will automatically heal your external conditions.

  1. How to deal with negative thoughts

The best way to deal with negative thoughts is to watch them, and allow yourself to feel negative. Besides this, never worry or identify with them because doing so intensifies them. Realize that these thoughts have nothing to do with you, and you will be peaceful.

  1. Self-acceptance leads to creativity

Self-acceptance makes you thankful and glad to be alive, and creativity naturally arises from gratitude and gladness. Besides this, self-acceptance results in good mental health hence increasing your creative abilities. That being said, we should love ourselves, and accept what and who we are.

  1. Negativity Is a Sign of Growth

A negative state of mind proves that you are growing. If you are constantly positive, and you have nothing to worry about, then you are not growing. Everyone that grows must face obstacles hence leading to negativity. Even rivers have to pass around mountains, rocks, and through valleys before they reach the ocean.

  1. All people are just like you

If you keenly observe your family, friends, and neighbors, you will realize that everybody is just like you. Everybody has problems, everybody is anxious, and everybody is afraid of taking risks. For this reason, there is nothing abnormal about your fears, doubts, and anxieties because everybody is experiencing them.

Hope You Loved The Teachings

6 Entrepreneurial Lessons From Millionaire Fastlane By Demarco

Published

on

M.J Demarco’s, Millionaire Fastlane provides you with the best methods for becoming wealthy within a short period. Demarco believes taking a job for the rest of your life is the slowest roadmap to making millions because he trusts that millions are quickly built through inventions and owning businesses.

He believes you can be a millionaire while still young and he shows you how to do so. His teachings are reliable since he uses mathematical formulas to support them. You have to read the book if you are an aspiring millionaire.

Here are my six primary takeaways from the book

  1. The Traditional Way of Getting Rich is a Slow Method

Since we were young we were advised to get rich the traditional way. Teachers and parents told us to get good grades, then get a job and minimize our expenses. M.J Demarco agrees that you can get rich using this method, but the sad thing is that you’ll be rich when you are 65 years old. As he points it out in the book, ‘Yes Sir, get a job, work 50 years, live frugally, invest in the stock market, your day of freedom will arrive at age 70.’

  1. Be Ready to Take Shitty Jobs If You Want To Concentrate on Building Businesses

When M.J Demarco decided to be an entrepreneur, he had to work in low-paying jobs for him to earn a living because most of his businesses failed. Besides Demarco, many people who become rich through entrepreneurship often have a rough start because, in the early stages of the journey, most of their businesses fail, and for this reason, they always have to take high school drop-out jobs for them to pay their bills. The good thing about these jobs is that they give you enough time to work on your business/project.

  1. Wealth is A Process Not An Event

When we see sportsmen or web developers making million dollar deals, we often focus on the event and forget the process. We think they are lucky because we don’t take time to research what they did to reach their current position. We don’t realize that these folks couldn’t have gotten the million-dollar deals if it is was not for the years of hard work, sleepless nights, failure, anxiety, and stress.

  1. The Three Road Maps to Wealth

The Sidewalk Roadmap – Sidewalkers often spend whatever they have on the trendiest gadget, and improving their social image. For this reason, they never attain true wealth.

The Slowlane Roadmap – Slowlawners are employees who work for 50 hours a week, and expect to gain financial freedom at retirement.

The Fastlane Roadmap – Fastlaners are businessmen and innovators. They often have a slow start but end up being wealthy within a few years.

  1. Wealth Demands Accountability

Never allow other people to invest money on your behalf if you want to be wealthy because people will con you, and you won’t receive the financial returns you expected. You must always take responsibility and invest the money yourself.

With this in mind, never let your close friend or relative manage your business because they won’t do it the way you could have done it. Businesses that succeed are often managed by their owners/founders.

  1. Impact Millions And Make Millions

Most millionaires are folks who impact millions of people. These people create things that many people need. For example, musicians make millions because millions of people need their songs. Also, some authors become millionaires because many people need their books. Therefore, if you want to be a millionaire, you must create something that’s needed by lots of people.

9 Sensational Lessons from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma

Published

on

Robin Sharma’s, book, ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,’ is one of the most empowering books of all time. For this reason, I believe all dreamers must read it because it will encourage them to follow their dreams and believe they will come true.

The book primarily teaches how to build a life that guarantees long-lasting happiness, and fulfillment. It enlightens you that focusing on building your inner life is more important than building your outer life.

Read the book whenever you get a chance, and your mindset will shift after learning the following lessons.

  1. Enjoy The Little Things of Life

You don’t need too many material possessions for you to enjoy life. In the book, Sharma talks about Julian Mantle, a successful lawyer who sold his material possessions when he discovered that he could enjoy life by meditating on the beauty of the little things of life such as a spider’s web and flowers.

  1. There Is No Good or Bad Experience

There are no bad or good experiences because everything happens for your good. What you call bad experiences usually offer lessons that enable you to move towards self-mastery. Therefore, celebrate all experiences, and remember that most folks have grown immensely from bad experiences.

  1. The Secret to a Happy and Meaningful Life

The happiest and the most fulfilled people are those who do what they love. You must do what you love for you to live a happy and meaningful life because focusing on what you love directs abundance into your life.

‘The secret of happiness is finding what you love and then direct all your energy towards doing it.’ – Robert Sharma

  1. Fatigue is a mental creation

Fatigue is just a mental creation because you have unlimited energy within you. You only get tired when you do what you hate. People who do what they love don’t get tired easily because their passion gives them lots of energy.

To prove that fatigue is a mental creation, Robin Sharma provides an example of a guy who feels tired at work but feels energised when a friend asks him to accompany him to a ball game.

  1. How To Create Positive Pressure That Will Make You Work Hard Towards Your Goals

You must learn to create positive pressure because it helps you work harder towards your goal. Robin Sharma teaches that you create positive pressure when you make your goals public because you will not want to look like a failure.

  1. Your Outer Life Improves if You Build Your Inner World

Working on factors such as discipline and optimism enables you to achieve whatever you want. Besides this, building your inner world through the cultivation of faith, a strong spirit, and self-mastery makes you unstoppable in your outer world. That being said, you must focus on building a strong character because doing so will enable you to easily succeed in your outer world.

  1. Practice Silence and Solitude

Practising silence and solute boosts creativity because it enables you to tap into your inner intelligence. Moreover, silence and solitude also enables you to attain inner peace, sleep better, and access the unlimited energy within you

  1. Advantages of Taking a Walk in Nature

Sharma teaches that spending time in nature enables you to align with your inner intelligence and peace hence improving your personal power. Also, he reveals that we should walk in nature because nature makes us energetic, and restores our body to its natural state.

  1. The Purpose of Life is to Give

Nature proves that the purpose of life is to give because everything in nature is always giving. Flowers give you fragrance, plants give you oxygen, animal droppings make the soil fertile, and the soil feeds the world. We, therefore fulfil the universe’s purpose by making giving a part of our everyday lives. We must help the old, the poor, and anybody who needs our help, because giving makes our days holier and enables us to move to higher dimensions.

Hope you learned a thing or two from the above lessons. You are free to add more lessons from Robin Sharma’s book if you’ve read it.
