Getting What You Really Want, Part 5

January 5, 2010


It all begins with what you believe.

At one time in my life, I walked around thinking “Now what?” all the time.  I was looking for the next bad thing to happen in my life.  LOOKING for it.  So what happens when you look for it?  *It happens*.   Big surprise.  Someone pointed this out to me and at first I was defensive but once it sunk in, I got it.  It was like buying a new car: you see that same car wherever you go because unconciously you’re looking for it.

So work with your sub-concious mind.  It has a lot of power.   I learned this as a teenager.   As a teenager, my girlfriend and I were walking along the street, smoking, when her Dad’s car went by and stopped at the traffic light right by us.  I cupped my cigarette in my hand and put it out with my thumb.  No kidding.  The adrenaline was going and I wasn’t really thinking about what I was doing at the time.  I just knew that I didn’t want to get in trouble.  We stopped and talked to him briefly and it wasn’t until he was gone that I realized what I had done.  I was almost afraid to see the burn blister that I knew I must have.  Once I gently removed the soot and ash off my thumb: there was nothing.  Just nothing.  No burn, no singe not even a hint of having touched a burning thing at all.   It didn’t even hurt.  How could this be? I didn’t perceive being burned, so I wasn’t.

So when you’re making your plan for getting what you want start with what you believe.  Do you believe you can have what you want?  If you don’t, then you can’t.
