Seemingly infinite patience demands really infinite attention

We all want to get paid well or make enough if we are self-employed for the work we do. This series of sections is a primer and an exposition of reality on how to do just that.

The cosmic habit of doing more than paid for, so that it is worth it to yourself and the client.

I lifted the title straight from Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone, but it explains well my intent. In order to make present and future profits from what you are doing, you must show initiative and feeling for the work to yourself and your client or clients that you do not just have the ability to do a good job, that you do a great job actually and always, consciously and unconsciously. When you put attention, love and thought into your work and you are meant to do it genuinely, profits are assured as your proficiency, reputation and clientele list grows. Without thoughtfulness, love and attention, you do go out of business quick. Attention, love and thought about your work are part of the certain way that Wallace D. Wattles mentions in his works, not all of it, but one of the most important parts of it.

When I think of what it means to make a profit at something you love to do, that represents the bulk of "the certain way" that makes one genuinely rich. For doing more than one is paid for comes almost automatically when you love to do it. When you are working purely for profit, you genuinely make less than when you do it for love and profit (in that order). Realisitically, "a calling" is doing what you love for genuine profit. "A job" is just making enough to survive.

Thriving is when you are doing your calling and not just a job.

For example, a job is something you do until you "retire from it". A calling is something you do because you love it and profit from it. Find your calling and I promise, when you do it and do it right, you will make more profit from it than "just a job". I will add sections, but I will leave this one alone awhile so you can think about the message within it, and get the "golden nugget" in the idea I am suggesting.

The realities of negotiation, where money comes from.

Money and value come from successful negotiations, and succesful actions taken in reality. Other than that, luck and specuation have little to do with actual smart and hard work that makes money and value. Even successful stockbrokers do a lot of research and analysis before they invest, if you understand what I am getting at here.

Indeed, negotiation includes knowing about your subject and understanding it fully before you actually negotiate an argument. The real wealth comes from using your skills well to negotiate situations successfully. The trap is totally depending on the concept of luck and chance to consistently succeed and genuinely profit. That can never, ever happen. Although success takes imagination as well as knowledge, it must be used in a way that depends on a rational base of skill and a firm foundation and not chance and luck. In the end, everyone has the same luck. But those who get it right with skill end up genuinely successful with persistence and genuine understanding of what to genuinely accomplish and why to genuinely accomplish it. To succeed, you must be willing to be persistent even in the face of temporary failure, no matter how seemingly bad it seems. If you want real and repeatable success, you must work for it and negotiate to it skillfully.

A good habit.

The force of cosmic habits is the most important force in existence, for those big good habits are the key to riches as those horrible, big bad vices are poverty and unhappiness creating in every way. The best way to live is beneficially. I did not say perfect, but beneficially overall.

Negotiation of life in a totally beneficial to you way may not seem like the ideal way to live because of the overt self-interest factors involved. But, ultimately it is genuinely the best way to live, even if it is not perfect and it may sometimes seem narcissistic to a certain extent. The best habit is to be beneficial to yourself no matter what striking a balance between altruism and selfishness that is genuinely beneficial to you.

What Aristotle meant by the laws of logic and "happiness is the highest cause" is exactly what I am saying here, I understand. Without mincing words, I say this, productive and positive self-interest is the best interest, and beneficial habits are the best habits. Think for yourself.
