In computer literature, a template is a file that serves as a starting point for a new document. When you open a template in Microsoft, for example, it is pre-formatted in some way. Likewise, success-thinking is a type of ‘template’.
We are not automated; we are each individually unique in our design and expression, but we each have been ‘preformatted’ with a success template that the Creator has given each of us. Using this Divine template allows us to see the delusion of using material gain as a gauge of our success; it transfers the locus of success inwardly toward character.
We have these ‘built-in’ mechanisms that, when used properly, will propel us into higher consciousness and awareness.
Therefore, when faced with our greatest challenges, all we have to do is fall back on our template for successful living and we will be victorious!
Our success template empowers us to do these three things.
Oprah Winfrey says, The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by mere changing his attitude.
Our success template is important because it is the impetus for changing one’s future. We literally become our own change-agent. We can change our circumstances, change our thinking, change our perception and change our behavior.
Show me a man who is immersed in self-defeating, self-destructive and self-immolating thinking and I will show you a man ignorant of the power he holds within; a man who only needs to tap into his success template and he will immediately right himself and assume a dominant attitude.
Control our Environment
The soul is stronger than its surroundings, notes William James, the father of modern psychology.
Once we tap into this success template, we begin to recognize how much power we have to control the only thing we can really control: our immediate environment. Our success template teaches us the difference between what we can control and what we might only influence – and the serenity to know the difference.
We choose wisely due to what we have learned from experience. Now we know instinctively that some situations do not warrant the heedless rendering of invaluable mental resources. Our peace of mind becomes priceless.
We no longer have to react – now we may respond to life’s challenges!
