In the Law of Attraction niche, the masters talk about letting go of trying too hard and struggling because we don’t have to. It’s a waste of energy. The Universe will help us make our desires a reality. We just need to take inspired action.
This is actually true in my own life. Back then when I was struggling, I tried too hard on making things better. I took action but it felt like a struggle, it really felt awful in my chest and gut. So I guess something was amiss here.
How come it feels bad when I know that my life will become better by following these steps that the famous and successful people shared? Then I began to think in the long-run, will it always be like this even when I’m successful? Will it forever be a chore?
Then I discovered Dr. Joe Vitale’s video teaser for his program, The Abundance Paradigm. He said that you just need to take baby steps to achieve what you want. A lot of people think that they need to do a lot to make things happen when you just need to take inspired action.
This is a type of action where you suddenly get an urge, feeling in your gut, head, or chest that you need to do something. This is the Universe giving you a sign on what action you should take to allow the dreams you have into physical reality. This actually feels… well… inspiring. Basically this type of action feels good and it seems as though the action occurred through you.
I’ve experienced this type of taking action many times and I’m a big believer in it. It’s because when I followed my gut, I made things happen (I mean I got what I wanted). Although before I really understood what inspired action was at that time, thinking back… I did those things out of impulse.
Meeting The Master Of Inspired Action, Rishan B.
While discovering Dr. Joe Vitale’s idea of inspired action, I also came across an email from Michael Lee (a mentor of mine). He said that it was about an amazing course he discovered about tuning your inner game so the law of attraction works for you better
It was there where I discovered the sales video for Manifest Absolutely Anything by the man, Rishan B.
Rishan’s from Cape Town, Africa. He’s been a fan of personal development since his younger years. He practiced a lot of techniques like Huna, EFT, and the Sedona Method among others. He’s now an independent marketing and advertising professional on the internet. He had a job as an actuary but after achieving financial success, he retired immediately. He has been financially free since he was in his early 20s.
You may notice in my previous posts that, and without a doubt in my upcoming posts, I use the phrase “it’s as if the action occurs through you” or anything similar when I talk about inspired action. I actually got it from this guy. His concept of taking action was very, very different from the other self-help gurus. He doesn’t like forcing action because it feels awful.
It feels like you have to give so much just to experience something you desire which in reality, rightfully yours from the moment you asked for it. Trying really hard to take action will only stress you out every time and if you don’t do any healing technique, the stress will accumulate in your body and eventually manifest into a disease.
Another disadvantage about that approach is when you lose everything you’ve worked really hard for, you’ll feel depressed because it took a lot of time and hardcore effort to just get where you were and now you’re going to do all that again???
This is why you need to learn to listen to yourself whenever you feel that urge… you really need to know when and how to take inspired action, seriously.
The Major Pitfall Of Learning Inspired Action
This a major sticking point I had and many others when they learn that working hard and feeling awful is not the answer to a happier, leveraged life. They become lazy. This was a major roadblock for me. I thought that I just had to sit down and wait for what I want to come to me. Man, what a recipe for disaster.
I spent many months doing nothing for my business, although I would still earn money, I wasn’t achieving my target. It was a bummer. This is the reason, in my perspective, why so many people in the world who learn about the law of attraction and watch The Secret miserably failed to manifest the life of their dreams.
That’s one of the ‘unlimited reasons (lol…)’ why they complain that the law of attraction is a sham and a marketing propaganda to make money.
No, no, no!
It’s true that you can just sit or lie down but you have to do some action like visualizing and affirming (mental action). While you do these proven techniques, you must give your undivided attention and focus. Avoid just ‘going through the motions’ but really put everything you’ve got into these rituals.
When you keep doing this for a consistent period of time, usually in the first time you do both of these, you will be inspired and motivated to take (physical) action. See the difference? It’s not about just sitting down and waiting, you have to do something to shift your energy and manipulate it so you take an action that feels really good.
I really had a hard time understanding this at that time. It was very confusing and I had a black and white thinking. It was practicing and believing consistently for many years (on and off) in the law of attraction that I gradually began to see the gray area.
The Gray Area And Why You Still Need Hard Work
Now we’re at the point where I’ll serve my special dish. This is an insight I had last night while listening to Abraham-Hicks. When learning to feel good while taking action, you still have to force yourself to take action… initially. That’s it. That’s the key word… initially.
Forcing yourself doesn’t have to take forever since, like any skill when mastered or practiced for a long period of time, it’s going to become automatic.
At the beginning, learning the law of attraction will take some hard work and discipline because you’ll be practicing a new way of thinking, feeling, and behaving. But the payoff will be for the rest of your life… the ability to take inspired action whenever you want to (from Rishan B.).
You see, while I always watch out for when the Universe gives me a sign, I don’t like having to wait when to take action. I just do things when I want to do them. I work first on my emotions before taking any action though. I think about feeling good and disciplined if I stick through my task till the end.
Like now while writing this blog post, I think about how good it will be when I finish it and that feeling of accomplishment just flows through my body and I feel inspired. What I’m doing right now is an example of inspired action. I think about writing as an expression of art, the human creativity, and the wondrousness of life… a perfect unfolding of a life worth living.
Tips on Learning Inspired Action: Cheat Sheet for Newbies
1) Start mastering your emotions first. Use all your willpower to become good at emotional mastery. This will give you a huge leverage when taking action as you will have the ability to shift your perspective when things get boring and less fulfilling.
By having the ability to think about the advantages and the good feelings you will get when you finish a task, you will be way more productive than the average Joe. You will achieve more and feel passionate in the process. Isn’t that the ultimate goal in life?
2) Program your subconscious mind. Willpower will dry out quickly so you need a boost to stay focused and motivated. Remember that the subconscious mind is the source of 90% of your thoughts, emotions, and actions.
A research on the brain showed that before you even consciously think about something, the subconscious mind already thought about it and it’s making you aware of that thought. So program yourself to be more positive and confident about your abilities. Use hypnosis, subliminals, or whatever method resonates with and works for you.
3) Allow yourself 6 months to master your emotions. Like with any skill, it will take consistent practice to become an expert at it. By giving yourself 6 months to practice, you will achieve big and astonishing results.
Eben Pagan (an internet millionaire) always said in many of his information products that you need to give yourself at least 90 days to master one of his programs. When you give yourself a minimum of 90 days, it will seep into your subconscious and become a permanent part of your life. Well, in our case… it’s twice as that so it becomes cemented into our mind.
I did the Abraham-Hicks process for 5 months and I didn’t use it for 8 months until yesterday. I never forgot the skills and nuances I acquired. I still have emotional mastery but of course there is still a lot to learn.
So make sure to work hard on yourself and you’ll master ease and flow eventually. A lot can happen in 6 months.

With the exception of those running their own accounting firms very few aspiring entrepreneurs have a great deal of experience with figures.
Managing money is, however, a crucial aspect of running your own firm; in most cases it’s crucial to success for any business however big or small. It is also one of those jobs that many small business owners like to avoid, simply because it can be time consuming and frustrating. Evenings, weekends and just about any spare time are quite often the first things to be sacrificed in the early days of running your own company and they are often sacrificed to the pressing demands of money management.
So what do you need to do and how can you learn to manage that cash flow in a way to ensure it doesn’t sweep you away?
The internet has become a platform for many actions such as exploring new ideas, implementing them and making money wisely. Although this is only one of the ways that the web is utilised, there are many more such related operations that can be performed such as marketing your business to a vast group of users who are potentially ready to be your customers, having a direct contact with different people, knowing unknown facts etc.
If you are part of the internet, it is beneficial to know of the new features helping you to stay updated in the present competitive world. People concentrating on making money through the internet may benefit form the below points.
The amount of bloggers in the whole wide world is ever increasing because of the benefits that it brings. Making money with blogging is so much easier than working in an office from 8 in the morning up to 5 or even up to the wee hours. But there are those who want to try blogging but are hesitant about how much blogging pays. Well, the truth is, working as a blogger pays as much as a regular job, but of course it would depend on how much time to allot for it.
If you want to get in to this field, you can choose to work full time or part time, depending on your availability. People can earn up to $ 200 or even thousands every month (again, depending on your availability and skills).
There are about 500 million English bloggers and about 100 million more in other languages. This goes to show that blogging really is worthy of your time and that it is worth a shot.
Another good thing about blogging is that it is very flexible, that is why a lot of stay at home or single mom, students, part time workers choose this.
Also, you get to work for only a few hours a day, depending on how much you finish your tasks. Blogging is also very fun because it doesn’t look like work at all. All you have to do is write reviews of products, share some insights and many more.
It may be true that it’s not easy to make huge amounts of money with blogging, not unless your blog is very famous in a certain area. But that doesn’t mean that you can no longer earn money with it. There are a lot of things you can add to your blog to earn money, you can advertise products of your friends and earn a commission for every purchase. You can put up ads on your site and you’ll earn every time someone clicks on the link. Sign up for paid-to answer surveys then post it on your blog for other people to answer or sell some e books on your site and get a percentage for every time someone buys. All it takes is a little creativity and you’re good to go.
Most people think that you’ll only earn money with blogging if you’re a professional blogger. But who could blame them? The people who earn a lot with blogging are usually famous people who are well known everywhere, but then again this shouldn’t discourage you from starting this kind of job.
Earning some extra money with blogging can help you out with your debts and in return, will improve your credit rating. Just work your way to the top and remember that there is no quick way of earning money so you have to work hard and be patient with this.
