SOS BOOK (Chapter 4.5) Employing ‘effortless effort’ – a strategy for success
Are you ready to commit to a process of self-Transformation? We briefly summarized what this process involves in chapter 4.4. However, achieving ‘the destiny’ we deeply desire might seem like hard work. This need not be the case!
THE JOURNEY DOES NOT NEED TO BE DIFFICULT.
This transformative process does require incorporating a little new information. It does require embracing a new perspective! We also need to practise some quiet contemplation or simple meditation. So, some effort in starting is certainly required! However, the ensuing journey can be surprisingly effortless and become self-powering.
TRANSFORMATION CAN BE JOYFUL & EFFORTLESS.
The transformation process itself can generate much satisfaction & lasting happiness. The journey then no longer becomes a demand on us. Instead it is quite the opposite - it becomes a Joy. Our transformation becomes satisfying and effortless.
THE MOMENTUM OF TRANSFORMATION POWERS ITSELF.
The transformation itself powers a momentum which unlocks even more potential! The transformative process becomes self-propelling and self-perpetuating. It becomes an effortless joy to continue in this fashion. One begins to enthusiastically anticipate the next step in the journey. There is an expectation of even greater joy. The process no longer becomes ‘work’. Instead it becomes an effortless ‘labour of love’.
SELF-TRANSFORMATION FILLS THE EMPTINESS WITHIN.
The so-called ‘work’ of self-transformation also becomes its own source of lasting happiness. These are not just temporary pleasures, with their inevitable loss and subsequent cravings. There is a sustained feeling of delight or elation. This gradually fills our inner void and emptiness within. We find more and more inner peace. All this, without apparent effort!
It becomes a joy to give and be of service to others. The giving of our talent & ability in service, paradoxically results in an even greater return! Giving and being of service also provides lasting satisfaction & contentment.
OVERCOME YOUR LINGERING DOUBTS.
Once we have started, we continue to power ahead towards the ideal destination we desire. We might still however have some lingering doubts about our own ability to transform. Can we achieve the detail of what’s required? The complexity can initially seem quite overwhelming! How do we train for the practical steps we need? How do we focus and fine tune our skills? This additional STRATEGY for personal success is outlined next in chapter 4.6. It should help explain this process better and ease your doubts.
