Worthy Ideals and Success

By Wayne Hafner

The Law of Cause and Effect states that every cause has an effect, and every effect has a cause. Nothing happens by chance.
Everything that happens in the universe happens as a result of a law. There is order in everything. Nothing is unpredictable to God.
We have freedom to make choices, but He knows how things will turn out because of the Law of Cause and Effect.

Moreover, our future should be just as predictable to ourselves based on the choices we make and the “vibration” we keep ourselves in.
Newton’s Third Law states that “To every action, there is always opposed an equal reaction; or the mutual actions of two bodies based upon each other are always equal, and directed to contrary parts.”

Or, as Leslie Householder states, “When you take a step toward the thing you desire, the thing you desire takes a step towards you.”
This is so exciting! Imagine. What you desire is actually drawn to you. If you take steps towards your desire or goal, that desire or goal is moving an equal distance towards you. You only have to do half of the work. What a relief!

Newton also speaks of two bodies. Think of these two bodies as being 1) you and 2) a formless substance. Don’t be focused on the other body being another person. This is too constricting. Just because we serve another does not mean they will serve us back. Sometimes the good we put out into the universe comes back to us from another source entirely.

Whatever we send out comes back to us. By law.

Remember, we do not have to know where the blessings will come from. Our loving Heavenly Father enjoys involving as many of his children and possible in bestowing blessings. Simply know that whatever good you place in the universe will come back to you in equal measure.

An important reminder is that your thoughts have the power to produce the things you need, but always maintain gospel principles in your efforts to obtain them. Do not seek abundance for impressing other people or proving anything to your neighbors and you will be successful.

Earl Nightengale defined success as the following:

“Success is really nothing more than the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. This means that any person who knows what they are doing and where they are going is a success. Any person with a goal towards which they are working is a successful person.”

I substitute worthy goal here. My late wife, Susan, was the embodiment of this. Susan day traded with stock options on the stock exchange. When she was seeking profits simply for profit sake, she failed miserably. When she had what I considered a “worthy goal” such as generating money for payroll or a medical expense, she was extremely successful.

That which you are looking for is looking for you.
