Here's a little secret. True willpower is the magic potion you've been searching for to make your dreams come true. Are you ready for the revelation?
Imagine yourself in a Walmart queue, eyeing a tantalizingly glazed Honey Bun. Your New Year's resolution is in full swing, so you persistently tell yourself, "I can't have that Honey Bun."
But guess what? The universe, in all its playful wisdom, focuses on the action - "have that Honey Bun." A little subconscious trick you weren't expecting, right? While you're paying attention and consciously telling yourself no, then the answer is no. When you answer that phone call while in line and you're not consciously paying attention, in your cart goes the honey bun.
Let's hit rewind and dive into the true meaning of willpower. Often misinterpreted, willpower is more than just the force we exert to resist our wants and desires.
Picture willpower as our very own Alfred (yes, the trusted aide of Batman). Alfred executes Batman's wishes, just like your will serves as your special request to the universe, something you want fulfilled while you're 'incapacitated.'
No, we're not talking about being brain-dead or physically incapacitated. Think of this state as being so engrossed in the journey towards a goal that you're powerless to stop the execution of your will. It's the stage when you've mentally let go of the goal but are consciously working towards it.
The secret sauce? Focusing on the journey - the habits and actions - rather than obsessing over the goal. This allows your will to be executed seamlessly.
Take Lebron James, for example. He nails those free throws not by aiming for perfection, but by honing his form and practicing consistency. There's your key - focus on the journey, not the end goal.
When you jot down your goals, it's akin to setting a will in motion - a will that our friend, the D. Universe, is legally obliged to fulfill.
So, what's the trick to unlocking this magic? Concentrate on the habits that guide you to your goal, not the goal itself. Once a habit takes root, it becomes second nature, making your will's execution almost magical.
Searching for your soul mate? Stop fixating on finding them. Instead, immerse yourself in habits and visit places where you imagine being with your soul mate. Much like the Honey Bun, they might just appear when you least expect!
Hello, lovers, and welcome back! As your trusty Relationship Consultant, I've got some spicy intel for you today! Let's dive into the world of manifesting your desires, shall we?
I had a eureka moment during one of my morning meditations (yes, even the Relationship Consultant meditates!). I stumbled upon a magical word that ties all your goals together, breathes life into ideas, and shapes the formless into form. It’s as exciting as finding the last piece of your favorite chocolate cake in the fridge. The word, my dears, is YOU. Yes, the magic is in YOU!
In the alleys of my neighborhood, we call this process 'building.' You start with a little idea, and you stack up details until you've got yourself a skyscraper. It's like creating a magnificent love potion, one ingredient at a time.
Let's play a game, "Make YOU Believe." Picture yourself as a child, lost in the world of make-believe, where everything you imagined was real. The trick is to make YOU believe in the reality of your imagination. If YOU believe it, then voila, it’s as real as the scent of your lover's perfume on your pillow!
The action of belief is believing - pretty straightforward, isn’t it? This belief acts as your magic wand, transforming your imagination into reality. Curious to know how you forge this magic wand? By pretending, my love. I kid you not!
Pretend comes from the root word 'tend,' meaning to frequently behave in a particular way. So, what we’re doing here is ‘Pre-YOU-tend Make-YOU-Believe’. Essentially, regularly behave in a way that makes YOU believe, thereby creating trust and confidence in your imagined reality. Just like how you pretend to enjoy your partner's atrocious cooking until it oddly starts to taste good.
Napoleon Hill, the sly old fox, was onto this when he said, “If YOU can conceive and believe YOU can achieve.” Conceiving an idea is playing 'Make-YOU-Believe.' And I'm typing this on a laptop because someone played the game. I'm lounging on a couch because someone played the game. You're reading this blog because, well, I played the game. YOU are the critical piece that ties it all together.
Now, here’s my secret sauce: Pretend to be who you want to be 100% of the time. When you’re called to be that person, pick up the phone! By doing this, you create belief and pave the way for you to step into the reality of who you want to be.
Picture this: You're pretending to be a Swagger Coach. Everyone in the office starts calling you Swagger Coach. But when a co-worker shows up looking like he dressed in the dark, you step in with some solid fashion advice. Before you know it, you've become the office fashion icon, and everyone believes in the Swagger Coach!
If you yearn to be the CEO, pretendto be a CEO 100% of the time. When you're asked to answer a CEO-type question, do it with confidence. Soon enough, the company will be eyeing you for a promotion. Remember, my darlings, luck is the sweet spot where preparation meets opportunity!
Remember to be unabashedly selfish in this process. Yes, you heard me right! After all, by basking in your happiness, you gift others a glimpse of their potential. If you can’t see your success, darling, change your vantage point. Perhaps it’s time to put on those love-tinted glasses, don't you think?
I've always been a bit of a magnet - an allure that drew people in, even when I was a chubby kid. I've mastered the art of walking into a room like I own it, the King of Swagger, if you will. Like the rap icon Lil' Wayne who proclaimed himself as the 'best rapper alive,' I too believe in my own greatness. It's this unapologetic belief in oneself that fuels audacious acts and bold ventures. But my realization this weekend was the icing on the cake.
Picture this: Las Vegas, the city that never sleeps, a playground of glittering vice and sin. My wife's 30th birthday, and me, amidst the bright lights and heady buzz, encountering an epiphany.
About eight months ago, a concept gripped my imagination and wouldn't let go: The Law of Attraction. It's a sexy idea, don't you think? The notion that if you visualize something, truly believe it, you can make it a reality. After devouring five books in eight months (an impressive feat considering I had only read 'The Call of the Wild' cover to cover before), I had an arsenal of positive thoughts ready to combat any negativity.
Now, our trips always ended with a vow to live on Ramen noodles until the next paycheck. But this time, it was different. I saved 10% of everything that came my way for this Vegas trip. And what do you know? Positive thinking pays - literally! We were big spenders, living it up, without a care in the world about our bank balance.
My wife chose a fancy purse for her mom, a thank-you for babysitting our son. Once, this would've caused a silent panic attack. This time, I didn't bat an eye. We returned from the trip with money still nestled safely in our account. Visualization, my friends, is a powerful thing.
Now, imagine me at a blackjack table, comfortably playing with hundred-dollar chips while others nonchalantly lost ten grand. As I pondered how I ended up amongst these high rollers, it struck me - our reality is shaped by our mindset. I felt I belonged there. This led to fascinating conversations, compliments on my positivity, and the affirmation that I indeed had the gift to sell anything.
Embracing the Law of Attraction means opening yourself up to receive the universe's offerings and, believe me, it's a game-changer.
I've always been a man of faith, transforming nothing into something. Positivity is contagious, and with each affirmation, each picked-up penny followed by a 'thank you' to the universe, I saw the fruits of my newfound philosophy. Don't just love money, love abundance. Don't just hate negativity, love positivity.
Starting small doesn't mean you're settling. Every step, every penny is a building block towards your own million-dollar dream. Don't let anyone rain on your parade. Own your thoughts, cultivate them, and watch them bloom. Remember the Butterfly Effect - one change can have an enormous impact.
Who knows, maybe one day I'll be telling you this story on a live talk show, maybe you'll even pay to hear my intriguing tales. The key takeaway? Ignorance may be bliss, but conscious choice is powerful. Harness the magic of positive thinking and watch as your reality transforms.
