How has your initial quarter of 2006 been? Have you changed your job? Changed your organization? Changed your life? XL Results Foundation had a historic month in March, with the launch of the XL Social Enterprise Accreditation Plan.

In this first year, our target was to attain $two million in pledges from participating organizations. Inside a week of its launch at the Entrepreneur Enterprise College, the System has already attracted more than $14.six million in pledges from participating businesses, surpassing all our expectations.

This weeks newsletter is about the origins of Wealth Dynamics, and how such magic happens:


All guys are produced equal

- Thomas Jefferson, 1776

Same, same, but different

- Common Thai Expression, 2006

Wealth Dynamics, the profiling method for entrepreneurs, is based on a simple premise that we are not designed equal. We all have innate qualities that set us apart, and it is exactly in these variations that we uncover our unique path and contribution in life.

Over 20,000 entrepreneurs have taken the Wealth Dynamics test in the last five years, providing them a focus on what they should and shouldnt be carrying out to stick to their all-natural path of action and attraction. Every single of the eight Wealth Dynamics profiles has its personal game with various guidelines, teams, techniques, winning formulas and losing formulas. Each and every identifies the frequency at which you operate in life exactly where you uncover your flow and tune in to your purpose. Those who have taken the test have identified an intuitive resonance with their path.

If these frequencies match so naturally, where did they come from? When have been they very first identified? And why didnt we learn all this at school?

Prior to we became so busy right after the invention of such issues as TVs, combustion engines and electrical energy, folks seemed to have a lot far more time to contemplate the globe we reside in. The most evolved and influential civilization five,000 years ago was Ancient China, which, according to Chinese mythology, was ruled by three mythical sovereigns until about 2,800BC. The initial of these, Heavenly King Fu Xi, developed the I Ching which became Chinas Oracle for the next 4,800 years. While Fu Xi was mythical, the I Ching is extremely actual. It evolved over 4 dynasties and 2,000 years before becoming the basis for Chinas two central philosophies, Taoism and Confucianism in 600BC. These have influenced wide ranging places to this day, from Buddhism, and Feng Shui to our formalized family, government and legal systems.

In the starting there was as however no moral or social order. Then came Fu Xi who looked upward and contemplated the pictures in the heavens, and looked downward and contemplated the occurrences on earth. He united man and wife, regulated the 5 stages of alter, and laid down the laws of humanity. He devised the eight trigrams, in order to obtain mastery more than the planet.

From the I Ching.

The I Ching is an extremely profound insight into the nature of our place in this universe. Translated as The Book of Modifications, it is primarily based on the observation that every thing flows from a dynamic balance of opposites, that time adjustments in nature as a outcome of this flow, and that within these ever-changing tides there is an immovable, ultimate path for every of us. (The Tao, implies The Way). The I Ching is much more than a philosophical thesis. The I Ching is an extremely intricate study and mapping of time a mapping equivalent to the mapping of DNA. As soon as the 64 codons of DNA had been identified in the 1990s, we had the developing blocks to decode the genetic sequence of all living items. So too, when the I Ching mapped time 4,800 years earlier, it gave Chinese masters a complete program to decode time.

In the I Ching, 64 Hexagrams combining Yin and Yang make up the entire DNA of time (and energy). These interplay with the five components of place (and matter): Wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The philosophy behind this code is based on the famous circular image of the Taiji: The perpetual interplay of Yin & Yang, Evening & Day, Male & Female. The universe was observed as a continuous flux, and we have the opportunity to live in resonance with this flux by understanding it and following our path inside it, or to be in a constant battle against it. (Considerably as a fantastic surfer picks the appropriate wave not by riding the wave, but by reading the ocean).

As we are born from power to matter, we take on varying qualities of the 1st 4 components, and it is this combination that defines our differences. Wealth Dynamics follows almost all contemporary psychometric testing, which takes its roots from the I Ching with one quite substantial distinction

The I Ching remained inaccessible to the Western Globe for the first four,000 years of its life. This changed in 1911 when Richard Wilhelm, a German missionary and scholar in China, met Lao Nai-hsuan, a Chinese sage in the I Ching. Lao believed it was time for the Western planet to understand of the I Ching, and from 1913 to 1921 the two of them worked together at translating the intricacies of the I Ching into German. Lao died in 1921 as soon as the translation was completed, and Wilhelm took the translation back to Germany.

It was right here that he met psychoanalyst, Carl Jung. Jung had been Sigmund Freuds understudy for six years, and he had fallen out with his mentor over variations in their views of the unconscious. Whilst Freud believed that we are the result of our family members and social conditioning, Jung believed we are born with inherent traits. When Wilhelm showed Jung his translation of the I Ching, it had a profound impact on Jung, to the extent that Jung wrote the introduction to the book and helped to get the I Ching published. From the I Ching and his conversations with Wilhelm, Jung gained a new clarity into the nature of personality kinds:

For the 1st time this profoundest work of the Orient was introduced to the West in a living and comprehensible style. What he told me, out of his wealth of knowledge of the Chinese mentality, clarified some of the most hard issues that the European unconscious had posed for me.

Carl Jung

Jungs new insights led to the basis of Jungian psychological typing, which subsequently led to psychometric testing models such as Myers-Briggs and DISC profiling. These tests take the nature of opposites in the very first 4 Chinese components: Wood/Spring, Fire/Summer, Earth/Autumn and Metal/Winter, and relate them to introversion/extroversion, intuitive/sensory and so on. Myers-Briggs eight pairings of sorts match the eight primary trigrams of the I Ching. To this extent, Wealth Dynamics shares a common source in Carl Jung. So why must we go back to the I Ching? What did Jung miss in his typing model?

The significant difference in Wealth Dynamics to other psychometric tests is in its relation to time and the fifth element, water. Jung discarded the fifth element as it did not fit into the Western model of four static elements. As a outcome, he ended with a static model of the unconscious based on four components, exactly where time simply played a trigger-and-effect role in life. This was ugly and incomplete, and Jung knew it.

Jung turned his focus to the intentional coincidences and total inter-connectedness of all items that the I Ching philosophy not only permitted, but anticipated. This led to him establishing and naming two concepts which today are well known: The universal unconscious, and synchronicity (a term he utilised for the first time at Richard Wilhelms funeral in 1930). He constructed this into a complete theory of synchronicity in 1952, but he never ever managed to reconcile this perform on the flow of time and consciousness with his static psychological typing, and he died in 1961.

To this day, Jungian personality testing treats our personality traits as static components with small partnership to levels of consciousness or spirit. By contrast, in Wealth Dynamics spirit is important as it is our entrepreneurial spirit that will establish our wealth.

While contemporary science and spirit have always been divided in the West, the East has often taken a far more holistic view that time, matter and spirit are necessarily interconnected. Although the four Greek elements are primarily based on physical elements, the five Chinese components are not elements at all, but states of modify. Fire does not refer to fire, but the state that fire is in when it warms. Wood does not refer to the wood in trees, but the state that wood is in when it grows. The five Chinese elements could much more accurately be described as: Develop (Wood), Glow (Fire), Slow (Earth), Know (Metal) and Flow (Water). While Western culture has focused on a static physical world, with changes based on cause-and-impact (until the advent of quantum mechanics), Chinese culture has always focused on states of adjust, exactly where nothing at all is static and exactly where we knowledge totally diverse realities in the context of our state of adjust in any moment in time.

Wealth Dynamics refers to these five states as frequencies. When we tune in to our frequency (and we all have a dominant frequency), we knowledge a diverse reality, and we begin to attract the correct folks, resources and opportunities as if by luck. Numerous men and women call this our flow. Not surprisingly, flow is what we uncover in water, the fifth element. As we stick to the approaches to resonate with our organic frequency, we increasingly tune into and experience flow.

"These coincidences, which Jung termed synchronicity, are certain signs you are in the flow Flow is a harmony of becoming that has been sought following by means of the centuries in the spiritual traditions of the planet. In the East, it has been linked to the Tao, the underlying interconnectedness of the Universe. In our lives, flow is apparent in these occasions when items take place effortlessly, every thing falls into location, obstacles melt away, and our timing is best. In those instances, we really feel a deep sense of harmony and underlying order. We know we are in the proper place, at the correct time, performing exactly the correct factor."

- Charlene Belitz & Meg Lundstrum, The Energy of Flow

Flow is not an ethereal concept in Wealth Dynamics, but an achievable state, reached by way of a natural step-by-step path that every of us can tread - simply because numerous have tread the path ahead of us. (four,800 years prior to us, in reality).

The finish goal of Wealth Dynamics is not just to know your profile. It is to determine your path, to tune in to your flow, and to fulfill your true possible.

As far as we can discern, the sole objective of human existence

is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.

- Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

AND Lastly

You will not see Paul Newman on the list of Hollywood leading earners, however Newman has provided away over $200 million far more than most of todays most successful Hollywood actors have ever created. He didnt make that cash from films. He created it from salad dressing.

He started his firm, Newmans Personal on a wager that individuals wouldnt acquire his salad dressing. From day one particular, he declared that all profits would go to charity. In the first year, Newmans Own was successful adequate to donate close to $1 million to charity. By 2006, the organization had reached an astounding $200 million in donations to charities.

Whats more, the good results of Newmans Personal has because catapulted Newmans involvement in philanthropy to an completely new level. Newmans encounter inspired him to launch the Committee to Encourage Corporate Philanthropy (CECP) in 1999. In the 5 years considering that launch, the CECP has encouraged corporate giving in America. These days, the CECP is chaired by Citigroups CEO, Sandy Weill, and the membership list is a whos who of Americas best CEOs and Chairmen, representing organizations that gave over $7 billion to charities in 2005.

Newmans uncompromising method to creating a difference is summed up in the slogan of his company, Newmans Own:

Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Typical Good

If Butch Cassidy can have this kind of good results, what can you achieve? What will you modify in the coming quarter? Alter the dressing? Alter the channel? Modify the globe?

Belief, courage, action
