"For ten years Keely's demonstrations were confined to the liberation, at will, of the energy he had "stumbled over" while experimenting on vibrations in 1872; and his efforts were put forth for the construction of "the perfect engine," which he had promised to the Keely Motor Company. He made the mistake of pursuing his researches on the line of invention instead of discovery. All his thoughts were concentrated in this direction up to the year 1882. Engine after engine was abandoned and sold as old metal, in his repeated failures to construct one that would keep up the rotary motion of the ether that was necessary to hold it in any structure. Explosion after explosion occurred, sometimes harmless to him, at other times laying him up for weeks at a time.
Two more years were lost in efforts to devise an automatic arrangement, which should enable the machine, invented by Keely for liberating the energy, to be handled by any operator, and it was not until 1884 that steady progress was seen, from years to years, as the result of his enlarged researches. When Keely was asked, at this time, how long he thought it would be before he would have the engine he was then at work upon ready to patent, he illustrated his situation by an anecdote: "A man fell down, one dark night, into a mine; catching a rope in his descent, he clung to it until morning. With the first glimpse of daylight, he saw that had he let go his hold of the rope he would have had but a few inches to fall. I am precisely in the situation of that man. I do not know how near success may be nor yet how far off it is."
August 5th, 1885, the New York Home Journal announced that Keely had imprisoned the ether; and, as was then wrongly supposed, that the unknown force was the ether itself; not the medium of the force, as it is now known to be." [Bloomfield-Moore] [Ether the True Protoplasm]
"To attain or gain success, to gain freedom, you must manifest same, send out same - but not in a selfish manner; rather in a SELFLESS manner as a service to those who become involved, that the involvement may be as hopeful experiences to ALL concerned." [Cayce 877-19]
"Build on as you have started. Keep your face towards the light, and the shadows will be in the background. Turn not upon those things that you would change, but press onward - upward - ever!" [Cayce 369-9]
(Q) Where should the person go to achieve the best success?
(A) Take what you have in hand. It's not who or where I GO to acquire what is necessary. It is in your own self, in your own hands, to build upon that to bring those influences for proper development." [Cayce (345-1)]
Over the last 100 years, researchers have examined hundreds of thousands of super successful people from all over the world. Here are the common denominators:
1.) They knew exactly what they wanted, with amazing clarity and specificity, and it was always a single goal.
2.) They made the absolute 100% decision that they were going to get it and that nothing was going to stop them.
3.) They were willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goal, nothing was too hard and no sacrifice too big.
4.) They were willing to work for however long it would take…no matter how long it would take...time was not an issue.
5.) They had a total and complete obsession with attaining the ONE thing they were wanting, and nothing else, and were totally focused on attaining this ONE THING and one thing only.
There you have the absolute success formula that never fails.
An interesting side note:
Most of these mega successful people were laughed at for trying to achieve their business dreams. Their family, friends, business associates, and acquaintances did not have the same vision and did not believe that attaining this "crazy business idea" was possible (almost everyone was against them and most people thought their business idea was stupid).
These mega successful people saw what others could not see. They had vision. They saw the potential where others could not see it. Mega successful people are always visionaries who SEE what others cannot see.
Because they had total faith in what THEIR minds conceive, they all DID achieve MEGA SUCCESS! [source unknown]

“Ever to be borne in mind is the occult teaching that the "Great Infinite Contriver" is a real presence in the heart of man. Whether we say, with the Egyptian Book of the Dead, "There is no part of me that is not of the gods," or with the Psalmist: "Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in the grave, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee'— or whether we phrase it in the simple words of Jesus, "The kingdom of heaven is within you," this idea of the actual presence of the controlling power of the universe at the very heart of human experience has for its corollary the occult teaching that all we aspire to is even now the actual present attainment of the I AM.
Our certainty of success, therefore, is not confidence that the goal will be reached in some far-distant future. It is certainty that the omnipotent success-power is actually within us, here and now. We are personal expression of a conscious Energy which cannot possibly fail. No slightest detail of its Great Work will come to naught.” [True and Invisible Rosicrucian Order by Paul Foster Case]
