Most people have eyes, we know that. But did you know, some people have a third eye? This third eye is a mystical and esoteric concept of a speculative invisible eye, usually depicted as located on the forehead, which provides perception beyond ordinary sight.
In Indian spiritual traditions, the third eye refers to the Ajna chakra.
As much as sight is priceless, perception is also very valuable, especially when it comes to getting what we want. Having perception flies beyond just seeing. It is seeing things that others don’t. Hence the reference to the “third eye”.
Seeing is believing?. NO
Believing is seeing – YES!
The Million Dollar Eye – Why Most People “See’ Very Little
Helen Keller was an American author, disability rights advocate, political activist, and lecturer. She was born in West Tuscumbia, Alabama. She lost her sight and her hearing after a bout of illness at the age of 19 months, yet she still managed to achieve more than what most people achieve in their lives, how was this possible?
Sometimes, we really only truly “see” things once our eyes are shut. Having sight is a wonderful thing, but the real “vision” comes from within our mind. you’ve probably heard of “hindsight”, but what about “foresight” ?
Foresight is where we have the ability to “predict” what will happen. This comes from being focused on a given situation and using the third eye to run the movie in our minds forward enough for us to “see” the potential outcome. As human beings, most of us only tend to act on a given situation once it’s occurred, by then it is usually too late:
Buying a burglar alarm after your house has been burgled.
Apologizing for the things you said after your lover leaves you.
Thinking of buying bitcoin in 2009 when it was virtually worthless but putting it off until 2022
I think you get my point.
The problem is, we always refer to hindsight, whereas we really need to improve our foresight. We do this by taking a 3-dimensional view of any given situation. Let me explain:
It’s about taking a 360-degree view of any given situation.
The Million Dollar Eye – The Formula
The first thing is to realize that you can’t deal with several situations at once. Not properly anyway. I know people talk about multitasking as if it was some super-duper productivity hack, but in truth, it really isn’t, as if you get to the stage where you can spin plates, serve dinner and also blow your nose at the same time, you will only do any of those three things at a third of the effort. Multitasking really only reduces how well you do any one thing. If you do three things at once, you divide 100% by 3 = 33% spent on each thing.
This can also be very costly as mistakes are made when trying to do more than one thing at a time.
So, my first “Third Eye” hack is to focus on ONE thing. I see people on the Internet (Facebook in particular) bragging and boasting about how many side hustles or businesses they are able to do at once. And yet, they are really all masters of none.
Do ONE thing properly..
Even though I have been in the self-publishing business for nearly two years now and I do advertise that fact on Facebook, I still get people trying to sell me more business opportunities nearly every day as if it is some “badge of honor” to have as many things going on at once. Focus on one thing at a time and master that first.
My second “Third Eye” hack is to run the movie forward first. Whenever you are going to do anything that might take you out of your comfort zone, plan forward and see what possible things could go wrong and what things could go right. See yourself achieving the outcome and set out a plan to achieve it.
Search for all the angles, see your situation as a 360-degree model. Look at it from every aspect.
When you are planning your goals, always start with the goal that is directly in front of you. Achieve that first. If you are trying to make a million dollars online, do what it takes to make a dollar first. Once you know how to make a dollar, you have some idea of how you can make a million, just step up the process.
My third “Third Eye” hack is to get started. This might sound obvious but it’s not. This is really the No1 reason why many people struggle to achieve anything of real significance, they are just too busy doing other things and rarely start anything that will move them forward. Most people are “treading water” trying to hang on to what they have and mistaking “busyness” for progress.
Let’s be honest, if you are trying to make a million dollars, you will have to massively upgrade your thinking if you are currently only used to making $500 – $1000 a week.
My fourth “Third Eye” hack is to see into the future. No, I’m not talking about inventing the time machine. I’m merely talking about believing without seeing instead of adopting the “seeing is believing” way of thinking. To achieve anything of real significance we first have to believe we can do it. Most things are doable, many of the people who achieve them had many doubts in the first place.
Ordinary people become extraordinary.
We then have to be prepared to have the faith to believe it will happen. It’s strange, but with an overwhelming belief in something, the opportunities to achieve that one thing will start to present themselves. The way you think will attract or repel things into your life.
- Focus on one thing at a time. Don’t take your eyes of the prize. Stay glued to it until you achieve it. forget people who want to do multiple buisness opportunities from the getgo, they are deluded. Only diversify at the top, never at the bottom.
- Hatch a plan. If you have a great idea, attach a plan to it. Not having a plan is like sailing a ship without a rudder. Run your movie forward in your mind. See the outcome, see the dangers, see the advantages. Add all this to your plan.
- Get started. You won’t be remembered for the things you thought about, only the things you achieved. Once you get started, you will have the motivation to continue. Stop blaming outside circumstances as to why you can’t get started, you have to be brave enough to change those outside circumstances yourself so you can get started. Bend the universe to your will.
- See into the future. Believing is seeing. don’t be one of those people who have to see everything in order to believe it. This will always hold you back. Have faith in yourself and your ability.
