Secrets of

Getting Rich


The Secret of Doing Without Doing 
By Dr. Robert Anthony 

One of the mistaken certainties or misconceptions most people 
operate under is that you get what you want in life by what you 
DO, or through the actions you take. Most people believe that the 
DOING or action part is what makes things happen. However, this 
causes you to create in reverse. 

Let me explain.. 

The reason we put a lot of emphasis on action is because we do 
not understand the power of our thought. If you analyze it, 90% 
of most people's actions are spent trying to compensate for 
inappropriate thought. 

The Chinese philosopher Lao-tsu said that, "In the practice of 
the Way, every day something is dropped. Less and less do you 
need to force things until finally you arrive at *non action* 
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone". What he is 
talking about is *doing without doing* 

The problem is that most of us are preoccupied with "doing". 
Unfortunately most of our doing usually involves struggle. In the 
western world we are conditioned to be action-oriented, so we 
place a tremendous value on doing. We are so busy doing that we 
do not realize that all this "doingness" causes us to create in a 
reverse fashion. 

Most of our actions are out of fear, worry or doubt because we 
believe nothing will get done unless we DO something. In other 
words, we are trying to force our desire into manifestation 
through action. 

If your decision to DO is dominant, then you will not focus on 
what you want to BE in the present moment. This causes you to 
miscreate because BEING is the first and most important step in 
the creative process. 

Here is the sècret. 

It is not your action that makes things happen, it is your 
intent. You can reduce the need for action to a very minimum by 
allowing yourself to focus on what you desire until you feel the 
positive energy begin to move within you. This energy is not 
based on doubt, fear, anxiety, worry or need. If you focus on 
what you want instead of what you don't want, you will know when 
it is time to take action. And when you do, it will be 
effortless. Doors open and the entire universe will conspire to 
assist you in your desire. 

Put simply, you should take no action on anything until you have 
visualized your desire and made it real enough in your mind that 
your next action (step), whatever it is, seems like the most 
logical step. 

How can you know the next logical step? Here is the test that you 
can give to yourself before taking any action. If you focus on 
what you desire and still feel overwhelmed or anxious, then you 
are not ready for any action. You know you are ready when it 
feels like the next logical step is effortless. There is no 
effort, no strain, and no pain. 

What we want to do is to use the leverage of energy, the same 
leverage of energy that creates everything in the universe. 
However, we are so caught up in the reality of WHAT IS, that we 
feel we must create everything through mental effort and physical 

Have you ever seen people who seem to have all the wonderful 
things in their life without much effort? It almost seems like 
they have an advantage over evèry one else. Then you see the 
people who work the hardest usually have the least. That doesn't 
seem fair does it? But that's the way the universe works. 

Unfortunately, those who work the hardest usually have the least 
because they haven't learned the leverage of aligning their 
energy. They are going about creating their lives the hard way. 
They are trying to use their actions to create what they want. 

We have also been programmed that in order to have what we desire 
we must work hard. How many times have you heard - "No pain, no 
gain." The implication is that if you want to make something of 
yourself, you must work hard. The message is clear - if you are 
not hurting or struggling, you are not moving forward. 

But here is the truth - anytime you are struggling you are 
miscreating. Anytime you feel pain or struggle, your magnetic 
point of attraction is directed to that which you do not want, 
rather than to that which you desire. Read it again! 

Actions are necessary, but they are the last component of the 
creation processes. Actions cannot be used effectively to 
initiate results, because initiation is the function of BEING, 
then thought, then action. 

Remember, the creation of anything is through your vibration. 
Everything vibrates, and it is by that vibration that we 
harmonize and attract experiences to ourselves. So before you act 
or do anything, first ask yourself, how am I vibrating? How do 
you tell? You tell by how you FEEL. Your feelings show you your 
vibration. How you feel determines what you attract. 

When you use the process of creating by only focusing on what you 
want instead of what you don't want, you will see that the 
universe will provide a different set of circùmstances for you 
that requires much less action. This puts you in a state of 
"doing without doing" or action without effort.
