Well, if there was, it would have been discovered by now! After thousands of years of human history, some brainiac would have stumbled upon it, even if by accident.
Then why are there so many books and courses on the market offering the secrets to success, happiness, or wealth? Why do so many bestsellers offer "Ten Steps to (fill in the blank)" or offer can't miss formulas for marketing riches?
I don't know, frankly. I've been researching philosophy, science and spirituality my whole life and I've never discovered a can't miss formula for anything.
However, in my study of successful people I have noticed one common denominator. Successful people are passionate people, people who are excited about what they are doing in life. Successful people all have a clearly defined goal and a plan of action to get it. This leads me to believe that the fundamental reason for success is the alignment of thought, desire, being and intent within you, to a clearly defined goal.
Take Biff Bifferson, for example. Biff made several million dollars in his widget marketing business. He's written down every step he took, right down to the last detail. He's really excited to teach you how to do it too, so he creates a seminar and explains everything you need to do to duplicate his success. But Biff is genuinely puzzled when only a few can do it, while the rest fail.
Biff thinks that there is some magic in his action steps, not understanding that only when your personal creative process is aligned to those actions can you succeed.
Biff doesn't understand that he can't teach you the personal alignment of thought and intent that lead to his success; he can only teach you the actions he took based on that personal alignment.
There are probably a few in the audience at Biff's marketing seminar who think just like Biff; for them, his program will be easy because they are already aligned to it. But what about the others? They will fail, it's as simple as that.
It's just common sense! No matter how good the program, if what you are trying to do doesn't feel right to you, then you won't do it. Either that, or you will attempt to bull your way through and try to force it. But that's like trying to put a square peg in a round hole.
I'm talking from experience. I used to think I was just stupid: why can't I get the results these other guys get? Until I realized that I was approaching the problem backwards.
The same applies to self-improvement books and seminars. Eckhart Tolle found enlightenment, but how many people who have read his book have done so? How many who have read "Think and Grow Rich" have gotten rich? I've never read that book myself, but I know some mighty poor people who have.
Like me, you have probably already tried many self-improvement or success programs, but they haven't worked as well as you thought.
They haven't worked because there is a crucial element missing from all of them.
Action follows thought. If you begin with actions before you have aligned your thoughts around them, you will have trouble. But that is exactly what most people do!
I don't care if the program you are following was written by the smartest, most enlightened person on the planet.
If you are not aligned to it, you will almost certainly fail.
That's why Biff (and any good information provider) offers a personal coaching service, which purports to provide you with the missing information you need to help you get over. What these services are really doing, however, is aligning your thoughts to the goal or procedure.
There are plenty of good information providers out there, but the problem isn't lack of information! You can go on the internet and find literally hundreds of excellent programs from dozens of information providers on any subject under the sun. The problem is that you are not aligned, within your being, for success. And that is killing all of your attempts to manifest what you want.
But what if it were possible to teach you to guide yourself through your own creative process, and discover for yourself what you are really passionate about?
Then you have a much better chance to succeed.
The missing element in all of those ten step programs, manifestation formulas and secret codes is you!
Success is not just reaching a goal. Because once you are there, you get bored after a while.
If you study successful people another common denominator pops up: most of these people are never satisfied. No matter how much they have, they want more! This has been interpreted by some as greed, but it is actually a strong connection to creative energy. That connection is what powered them to succeed in the first place! Successful people are always looking over that next hill for another exciting challenge.
My financial advisor, for example, is a self-made multi-millionaire. When I asked him why he just doesn't retire, he got mad. "I'll be working until I'm 75," he said. "Because I LOVE what I do."
After I wrote my fifth book, I wanted to write the sixth. And after I've written my sixth, I'll probably find something else to blab on about! That's because I am so passionate about helping others to see their greater potential. I'm almost obsessed with it -- but in a good way!
If you want to have success you have to first know exactly what you want, and be passionate about what you are doing.
That's what The Keys to Deliberate Creation course attempts to do.
The fact is that no one can know what is going on in your head except you. Nobody knows your likes and dislikes better than you. So the solution is to yourself establish the state of being necessary for your personal success.
What good does it do to study Biff's successful formula (or anyone else's) if you are not aligned to it? The answer is, it doesn't do you any good at all.
That's why people spend tons of money and time looking for that special program, book, or seminar that will connect with them.
The cycle of deliberate creation goes like this: BE, DO, and then HAVE. If you don 't believe that, try making something before you have a clear idea of what it is you want. You might get something that looks like this:
Almost all sales and business courses go in the opposite direction. First they tell you about the riches you are going to HAVE, then they give you a bunch of recipes or steps to DO. But they never talk about the most important factor: BE.
Most self-improvement courses are better, because they focus on the BE: achieving inner peace, happiness, etc. But they almost never give you anything practical to put into practice! Here we have the BE without the DO and the HAVE.
The Keys to Deliberate Creation does both.
When you take the course you will discover that you can't get passionate about anything unless you have a plan to make it real. Otherwise, it's just a nice idea in your head.
Ask yourself this:
If you were given two paths to success, one that went through a dangerous and ice-filled mountain pass, and the other a walk on the beach, which one would you take? I'm betting that you would take the difficult path, because the idea on our planet is "enlightenment (or success, or riches, or anything) is hard."
And that's why your path toward success is filled with roadblocks. Because if you believe something is difficult, then it will be.
Of course, there is the opposite personality: the person who expects to find a magic formula that will give him or her everything with no effort on their part.
Both of these mindsets will lead to failure! To be successful you have to find a desire that resonates within you. You have to discover something about which you can be passionate. And when that happens, you have discovered the engine that drives your creative train down the track and to the goal.
Why am I harping so much on passion and desire? Because in order to create anything, you have to be interested enough for long enough to manifest your goals. When a passionate person hits a roadblock, he or she doesn't panic or give up!
Passionate people keep right on going, because they are excited and eager about what they are doing.
That's the magic formula, folks. That's the key.
It's just that we don't bother to look for them, because we don't believe it is important enough, or we think it's impossible to have a dream and live it!
"Well, all of this sounds good," you might say, "but who the heck are you? What qualifications do you have to be writing a course like this?"
My name is Kenneth MacLean and I am the author of 6 books, over 100 essays and three movies. You can see my pic at the top right of this page. I am 56 years old and I have l experienced the lowest lows and the highest highs of life. I am a researcher and writer who has discovered his own passion; I love what I do and I want you to be able to do the same.
I'll admit that this course is an experiment. I've beta tested it, and come up with what I think is a really effective methodology, but there is no way I or anybody else can guarantee that you can find your passion and begin to live it.
But you owe it to yourself to try.
Why settle for a life that is less than you have dreamed? Why not set the bar high, and go for it?
Because there are no guarantees in life, I will cheerfully give you a full refund if, after you have done the course, you are not satisfied.
It is my fervent hope, however, that you will be able to find the inner desire that lights you up. That's the reason I researched and wrote this course.
Note: This course does not come with dozens of video's or audio tracks that you will probably never listen to, nor does it contain bonus CD's and eBooks to distract you from the work you will do.
What it does contain is a lot of powerful, basic information and a set of exercises that are designed to get you to uncover your passion and figure out how you are going to manifest it.
Deliberate creation only works if you actually align your being to success, and not just say you are. Deliberate creation doesn't work unless you are willing to do the inner work necessary to be successful.
Believe me, you cannot b.s. yourself on this course. If you are a person looking for a magic bullet, please don't bother. You will just be wasting your time and I will have to send off a bunch of refunds, which will waste my time as well.
Am I ready to find my passion and begin to live it?
Am I willing to look inside myself to find it?
Do I want to go out in life and create my passion?
If so, The Keys to Deliberate Creation might just be the thing you are looking for.
