This isn’t going to be a long, heavy handed post. I don’t believe in padding word counts, or using long, winding sentences for the sake of making myself sound more wise than I really am. I’d much prefer for you to take this bit of knowledge that’s helped me greatly in my life, incorporate what you can into your own life and then take some action — regardless of how large or small — that moves your life in the direction that YOU want.
MENTAL ALCHEMY is the art and science of transmuting thoughts and emotions in line with universal and natural laws to consciously create, control and direct your personal reality with the goal of reaching your maximum potential as a singular, unique expression of the universe.
Sounds a bit heady, I know. Fact of the matter is, almost every esoteric discipline in existence (both religious and secular) advocates the power of adjusting your mindset to unlock hidden talents and consciously change the course of your life. Mental alchemy takes many forms, and not all of them are mystical in nature. Some people use their artistic instincts as a form of internal growth. Others practice martial arts, or engage in mental arts (like meditation, or yoga). Any ritual that engage in on a regular basis that helps fuel your personal development is a form of mental alchemy.
That being said… don’t you think your JOB meets those requirements? Whether you want to admit it or not, for most of us, our weekdays are highly ritualized. From our morning ritual, to the dutiful tasks we perform our work, the majority of our lives are spent not out pursuing our passions, but at a job making someone else rich. If you get your first job at 18, and then retire around 68 — 50 years of paid employment — you will spend 92,120 hours at work. If you’re engaging in a career that you don’t completely enjoy, you’re wasting a massive chunk of your life.
VENTURE ALCHEMY is the art and science of creating a business endeavor as a form of internal alchemy and to also help others reach their maximum potential.
I get it, you gotta work to make money. As you’ll see in later articles, I’m not one to advocate the terrible advice to quit your job without a safety net in order to become an entrepreneur (you’re just gonna stress overly yourself). However, there’s NOTHING stopping you from starting the process of making money from doing something you love and enjoy. For me, I’m obsessed with the subconscious mind and how your mind affects reality. I could spend all day, every day researching, discussing and attempting to innovate in this field. My business, SubliminalClub.Com was born from that passion. For me, the desire to discover (and show others) the unlimited power of the subconscious mind is a form of exploration, a form of development. A form of alchemy. As I help others grow, I’m developing myself.
For me, it’s not enough to just make money for money’s sake. I’ve been successful at generating good profits and steady passive income from past online endeavors. Thing is, I didn’t ENJOY what I was doing. Every morning, I’d get up and play around on the computer long enough to make that “money quota” for the day while wishing I could be doing something much more creative. Sure, I worked from home and made my own hours, but honestly, it felt no different than getting up and just going to work for someone else. In fact, the latter would’ve been less stressful.
I get a different feeling when I work on SubliminalClub. There’s a.. renewed sense of purpose. An unstoppable drive that reinforces my beliefs that this company will be successful beyond anything I could imagine. That I’ll touch countless lives. That I’ll use SubliminalClub to leave a longstanding mark on the world. Working on SubliminalClub makes me a better person. That’s venture alchemy. That’s what we want to help others achieve.
I’m sure some of you would be happy just having your own business and not having to work for someone else. That’s cool and I respect that. But for many of us — we need more. We need to love what we’re doing day in and day out. Let’s face the facts of modern existence: You’re going to spend a huge part of your life working to make money. You might as well experience infinite joy and happiness while doing it.
