It is a miracle to behold. I look at the world and think that it is only exactly as it is because of trillions upon trillions of micro-decisions made by billions upon billions of people over millennia. Every decision that has been made emanated from a thought. And where did those thoughts come from? Consciousness. And as I look at the world, I see success and failure from the global level down to each and every person.
All results come from some kind of action, and actions come from thoughts. Thoughts, in turn, come from consciousness. And it is the clarity and cleanliness of our thoughts which, in part, governs our individual destiny.
Think of it like playing golf. Any expert golfer will tell you that most of the work of the golfer is done before s/he stands at the tee off; and that the pre-swing preparation is also crucial. The moment the club is raised behind the golfer, the fate of the ball is more or less set.
My experience is that the same goes for business. If my life practices are in order, then my consciousness is clean and well-ordered, thus inspiring good thinking; and the actions and results follow suit.
We all know that Providence, Lady Luck, Serendipity and so forth, all play their role in determining the outcome. Therefore, the upside of maintaining an excellent state of consciousness is that not only does it enable me to achieve more, but it also means that when life does not go according to my plans, I am better placed to deal with such uncertainty.
