“I’ve always been the opposite of a paranoid. I operate as if everyone is part of a plot to enhance my well-being.”
– Stan Dale
Jack Canfield’s The Success Principles is packed with brilliant lessons for living a life full of purpose and passion. The concept of becoming an inverse paranoid is principle # 6 and is one that if applied will completely change the way you view your life. In a nut shell an inverse paranoid is the direct opposite of someone full of paranoia. The inverse paranoid person operates from the premise that everyone else is always part of a positive plot to enhance the quality of their life. In other words, no matter what happens the inverse paranoid person believes that it is all a conspiracy to see that he or she gets exactly what they need and want.
I couldn’t have studied this principle at a more opportune time. There are so many things that happen on a daily basis that are outside of our control. It can often be frustrating when things don’t go as we plan. But, using the principle of becoming an inverse paranoid restores the faith and hope we often need to press on even in the face of circumstances that we don’t understand. Instead, we can operate from a position of peace, always knowing that there is a greater power at work on our behalf. It’s very similar to Bob Proctor’s concept of “Let Go and Let God.”
I believe in stating, with intention, what we desire in our life. I also believe in goal setting and action plans to move forward towards our needs and wants on a daily basis. I also know that sometimes the plan that we set in motion is not always the easiest, nor the most effective way to get what we want. When you believe in the additional power working with you and through you to accomplish your hearts desires it takes a lot of the pressure off. In addition, by adopting the inverse paranoid persona you can operate from a place that doesn’t always know why or how, but, knows what and believes that the what will be manifested regardless of the path.
How often do you look back upon what at first seemed to be misfortune only to realize that the circumstances were vitally necessary for you to achieve the good you desired for your life. Hindsight is 2020!
Move each day in the direction of your dreams and live as an inverse paranoid; believing that the entire world is in a plot to enhance your life. Be the writer, director, producer and STAR of your own show.
