Do you think you can or do you think you can’t?
We are 2 months into the year and I hope you are still on fire about your dreams and goals. As we read in January’s Blog about becoming an Entrepreneur, this month is about the Law of Attraction. How your thoughts determine your outcome.
When I was growing up, I always visualized what I wanted and I always got it, whether it be a good outcome or bad. When I was 8 years old, I had a piggy bank with $100 saved! That day, I wrote a note and put it in the piggy bank that said, “I know no one will steal this from me,” and sure enough, someone broke into our house that night and took it. And we lived in a good neighborhood too! As I became a teenager, I realized I needed to visualize and speakonly positive thoughts.
At 18, I visualized getting into Emerson College after my counselor told me I only had a 2% chance of getting accepted. I had to meditate and pray for a while, to get that negative thought out of my mind. After my audition for Emerson, the head of the theater department told me on the spot, he wanted me at Emerson and what did he have to do to get me there.
My first year out college at 22, I wrote on a piece of paper in January, that I was going to book a sitcom, a film, and a national commercial by November that year. I forgot I wrote that vision down. In November, I found that piece of paper, and yes, I booked all three, 2 days before the deadline!
Visualizing what you want, controlling your thoughts is a big part of achieving your goals. I pray and mediate daily on what I am grateful for and then focus on what I want out of life.
Today, take some time to be grateful for what you already have and then be grateful for what you will receive in the future as though you already have it now. Here is a video to give you more clarity. The Secret. It’s a different perspective to Napoleon’s Hill’s video in December’s Blog.
