I am sure you have all heard the saying: “The end justifies the means.”. Loosely deciphered, this means doing whatever it takes to get where you aspire to be. Changing what you can’t accept and even hurting a few people on the way, To get what you want. Chanelling positive energy. Forcing the universe to align itself to your base desires. Never taking ‘No’, ‘Maybe’ or ‘We will see’ for an answer.
At the end of the day, people will see the REASON why so many people had to be disapointed, hurt etc, for you to get where you are. Or do what you did. They will marvel at the beauty of the end-product and forget all the pain. Guys will say ‘You are good. It was all worth it’. Unless they are just typical estate dogs who scorn at anything they are not associated with.
Then comes the sister quote: “The means justifies the end”. Accepting what you can’t change. Saying all the things losers and pussies say, e.g. “That is what God planned.”, “We tried our best”, “We had no funding.”, “We blame Safaricom”, “I wish I were a Mzungu”. Then comes my favorite “Who needs money?”, “Wameiba”, “Pesa ni za Shetani”. etc. Fuck you.
But then comes the thin line. Morality vs Results. Ruthlessness vs Goodwill/Blessing/Good Karma. Allow me to Shamelessly quote James Allen’s As a Man Thinketh , one of my favorite all-time books [Best book. I highly recommend it to anyone ]:
“ A man may be honest in certain directions, yet suffer privations. A man may be dishonest in certain directions, yet acquire wealth. But the conclusion usually formed that the one man fails because of his particular honesty, and that the other prospers because of his particular dishonesty, is the result of a superficial judgment, which assumes that the dishonest man is almost totally corrupt, and honest man almost entirely virtuous. In the light of a deeper knowledge and wider experience, such judgment is found to be erroneous. The dishonest man may have some admirable virtues which the other does not possess; and the honest man obnoxious vices which are absent in the other. The honest man reaps the good results of his honest thoughts and acts; he also brings upon himself the sufferings which his vices produce. The dishonest man likewise garners his own suffering and happiness.It is pleasing to human vanity to believe that one suffers because of one’s virtue. But not until a man has extirpated every sickly, bitter, and impure thought from his mind, and washed every sinful stain from his soul, can he be in a position to know and declare that his sufferings are the result of his good, and not of his bad qualities. And on the way to that supreme perfection, he will have found working in his mind and life, the Great Law which is absolutely just, and which cannot give good for evil, evil for good. Possessed of such knowledge, he will then know, looking back upon his past ignorance and blindness, that his life is, and always was, justly ordered, and that all his past experiences, good and bad, were the equitable outworking of his evolving, yet unevolved self. “
I could not explain it better. You will never be rich because you love your mother, or pray to a god daily or do all the good things your pastor told you to do. Or because you wake up every day and go to work by 7am. You will become RICH or POOR based on your thoughts. Simple as.
But as Humans/Kenyans, it is always good to just sit in our $30 Sofasets hoping against hope and saying, “One day this will all change. We will be rich and happy.”. And the beat goes on. The rich become richer. The poor also prosper. In poverty.
People who try less and work less than you will always be better than you, financially. Why? Because of the power of attraction. Positive energy. You want something bad enough? It will come to you. As soon as you deserve it. You will never get what you want or work hard for. You will always get what you DESERVE.
So, the question begs. “How do you channel positive energy to achieve what you DESERVE?”. The answer is right there. You are. Right now you are getting EXACTLY what you deserve. It is not fate. Fate is for the mentally weak.
Wealth [Monetary, Health-wise, Mental] is all a product of ones thought and focus.
Focus on what is WRONG, UNFAIR and NOT WORKING in your life, and you will get exactly what you deserve. Misery. Poverty. Sadness. Focus on what you want, the picture of success, you in that Kompressor, you being in every gals to-do list, etc.. and It will happen. Very soon. Nothing happens by chance. The universe respects your deepest desires. And always makes you realize them.
It all depends on you. The rest of us are just spectators and distractions. Kazi kwako.
