Success Through Intention Alone

The exercise of self-determinism and free will seems the only way to succeed regardless of how you define success.

Unfortunately, few people possess the actual self-determinism or free will that enables success through intention alone.

Too many people refuse to consider how holding the idea of “I belong to …” mitigates against possessing self-determinism and free will.

  • I belong to _____ (fill in the blank) family.
  • I belong to _____ (fill in the blank) religion.
  • I belong to _____ (fill in the blank) country.

The Power Of Intention fails to work for you if you’ve previously conditioned your consciousness to accept a state of being owned.

You have already surrendered self-determinism and free will by confessing your state of belonging.

If you think accepting a state of being owned exercises self-determinism and free will then you merely succumb to the denial promulgated by those who own you.

This includes the swearing of allegiances and the worship of iconologies under non-existent delusional self-determinism and free will that also preempt The Power Of Intention.

Of course, many people today have multiple owners beyond those considered above.

  • I belong to _____ (fill in the blank) political party.
  • I belong to _____ (fill in the blank) social activity group.
  • I belong to _____ (fill in the blank) trade union.

A similar problem exists holding the idea of “I am …” the first person singular present form of “be” which indicates something that appears due or destined to happen.

This extends into the belief of “being” an Astrological Sign or the personal identification with a Tarot Card.

Obviously, if you foretell your due or destined future you preempt actual self-determinism and free will.

Thinking and writing in E-Prime seek to avoid these conceptual problems that precondition consciousness. It enables success through intention alone.

E-Prime is a version of the English language that excludes all forms of the verb to be, including all conjugations, contractions, and archaic forms. Many people advocate using E-Prime as a device to clarify thinking and strengthen writing.

The importance of language use especially in the case of an internal dialog proves itself over and over.

The key to Success Through Intention Alone lies in your choice of language.

To evolve your consciousness in preparation, a few methods have proven their worthiness:

  • the Hindu Ashtanga Yoga system the Eight-Limbed Path,
  • the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddha known as the Threefold Way: Wisdom, Ethics, Meditation, and
  • the Eight-Circuit Model Of Consciousness model by Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson.

Only at the later stages of consciousness development do self-determinism and free will truly become possible. Until then one merely exists robotically driven by biological imprinting and dysfunctional psychology.
