Success - The Power Of Appreciation

By Lou Castillo

As we enter this holiday season, and this time of giving Thanks, we are reminded of the "power of appreciation". If you truly want to bring into your life everything that you desire, then start with appreciating all that you have now. Here's how it works - you bring into your life whatever it is that you focus your thoughts upon. So, if you focus on all the lack in your life, you get more lack. But if you focus appreciation on all that you have, you get more of what you want.

We're often asked: "But how can I appreciate not having something? Our response is that your desires are the life-blood running through your veins. You always have new desires. You'll never fulfill them all, because no sooner is one fulfilled that ten more are born. It's what keeps you alive. Can you imagine living each day with the thought that you have already fulfilled every desire? That there is nothing else to achieve? Of course not. There would be no purpose to life. So desires are not the lack of something; they are the promise of what is yet to come. How exciting! All that you want - you'll have.

Knowing that there is no lack - only desires yet to be fulfilled, you can relax, appreciate, and enjoy all that is already in your life. If you want to be happier, and fulfill your desires even quicker, try this exercise: take a few moments several times a every day to notice and appreciate some of the things in your life that you would miss if they were no longer in your experience. For instance, you might appreciate the home in which you live, the electricity which powers your house, the softness of your bed, the laugh of your loved ones, the sounds around you, the multitude of colors, the smell of Thanksgiving dinner cooking, the PC on which you're working. When you realize the importance these experiences play in your life, and the void their absence would make, it is easy to feel appreciative of all that you have.

Don't mistake that we're saying settle for what you have. To the contrary, we're saying enjoy what you have, while fully anticipating the fulfillment of all you desire. The point is to fully appreciate everything you have, which will lead to experiencing everything you want.

Best of success & abundance,

Lou Castillo

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
