As a society, we often attribute success to wealth.
But of course with many of you being attuned to a higher spiritual level, abundance or “success,” is understood to come in a different, more meaningful package.
In today’s challenge, we’ll be looking at Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success to understand how to achieve success in it’s most purest, joyous form.
“Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. Success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease. And yet success, including the creation of wealth, has always been considered to be a process that requires hard work, and it is often considered to be at the expense of others. We need a more spiritual approach to success and affluence, which is the abundant flow of all good things to you. With the knowledge and practice of spiritual law, we put ourselves in harmony with nature and create with carefreeness, joy, and love.” – Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
And some words from Brian on the book:
I’ll just start by saying this is one of those truly life-changing kind of books. Perhaps I should offer a warning that you shouldn’t read this book unless you are ready to transform your life!
On my last re-read (I’ve read it several times), I was so inspired by a heightened sense of clarity around my “Dharma”– one of the Seven Spiritual Laws – that I sold the business I was running at the time (Zaadz) within about 60 days of realizing I had a higher purpose to fulfill. Powerful.
Although a small book and a quick read, it may win the award for word-for-word most wise book out there as it’s packed with wisdom. It’s literally one big quote. If you could see my copy, you’d see that more of it is underlined and marked up than not. And, as with all of Deepak’s books, the words flow lyrically as we’re guided into a deeper sense of who we are and how we’re destined to manifest our Highest Selves.
In today’s challenge, we’ll go into each of the seven spiritual laws of success and I’ll point out ways I’ve applied them to my life – and how you can too.
