If we develop an obsession to help others in some way, we unleash a powerful energy governed by universal law, which will then work in our favor. If we willingly share a part of ourselves in service to others, without expecting anything in return, the blessings we receive will be more beneficial to us than we might ever be able to imagine. However, the important point to remember is; those who do good works in secret will be rewarded by the Lord openly; as per His son, Jesus.
Hill and Stone tell us, too; often what we can offer others, comes mostly under the category of, “Invisible Assets,” which no one can ever take away from us. They explain that sharing doesn’t mean that you have to give money. It could be something as simple as smiling at everyone you meet, sharing your time for a worthy cause, or lending a helping hand by using your special skills for good.
What we give that is good increases while what we withhold that is good decreases. And, “No,” you don’t have to be anyone special to have a magnificent obsession. Folks from all walks of life have had them and their works are still evident around us today.
Hill and Stone also remind us here that there is more to life than just chasing a dollar. While the authors of, “Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude,” fully acknowledge that money makes the world a friendlier place, they emphasize the fact that we are merely trustees of it.
Money won’t buy one health, love or happiness. Also, the love of money has left many folks, both healthy and ill, with no family. Pleasurable life outside of business has also been rendered none existent by the love of money, as well.
To make a magnificent obsession into reality; one may need to stand alone to pull it off. Determination and a lot of PMA will certainly be needed in these situations, especially if you’re pursuing something that many believe can’t be done.
Stone and Hill also point out in this chapter that, weather you are getting paid or not, anything worth having is worth working for. What one can see in their mind’s eye and believes in is always worth making the extra effort for; turning vision into reality through faith coupled with PMA. If it is something to achieve that is truly worth wild, any sacrifices you need to make for your magnificent obsession “now” will certainly be worth it to you, and many others, “Later.”
