If magic is believing anything is possible, then I believe. What happens when you believe anything is possible? What kind of opportunities become available to you and what doors open? If you truly believe anything is possible, what holds you back from having what you want?
It’s 3:58 am. I am awake and the first thought of the day is anything is possible and I like it.
Everything changes when you believe anything is possible. From your thoughts, attitude and creativity to your ability to embrace change and connect to something greater than yourself. For me, my mindset and what I believe is like the water in a fish tank. It’s the everything that holds life together and makes it all possible. When you know anything is possible life’s obstacles become minor challenges and temporary setbacks. Could these obstacles and setbacks be life’s way of teaching us something we need to learn? For me, life’s setbacks and obstacles helped me grow, build strength, become wiser. Life’s experiences taught me there is no such thing as failure, only learning experiences. Thank you Steve and Rachel!
Everything that exists today started with a thought, a dream and the belief that anything is possible. History proves the possibilities of life are endless and are only restricted to the boundaries we create for ourselves. For many, believing in magic, that anything is possible, is the foundation to having everything you want for yourself, your family and the people around you.
Our planet is 4.5 billion years old. We have only been here a short time. In this short time, we (humans) have accomplished so much and continue to do so. What do you think the Wright brothers believed was possible? What about the creation of the Internet? From the wheel to the light bulb, fax machine, automobile and all of the worlds records, man’s (men and women) belief and pursuit to create always starts with magic, a belief.
If you knew you couldn’t fail what would you be doing right now? Maybe it’s exactly what you are doing and maybe it’s not. Could the purpose of this post be to remind you of what you already know is true? Yes, life has plans for you. Yes, you can have whatever it is you want most. Yes, you already have all the resources you need to have or create whatever it is you want. The first step is knowing what you want. The next is believing not only in your dreams but that you can do whatever it is you want to do or have.
I remember sitting in my office many years ago. I converted my garage to an office. My daughter was just born and I was starting a new venture. Money was very tight and challenges were appearing like stars in the night. There was a part of me that was saying to go work for a company. It’s good and steady, money that will provide for my new family. The other side of me believed anything was possible and I should start my own company and go for it. At that time, I just bought my home, my wife stopped working to stay at home and raise our daughter. Money was as tight as a cork in a wine bottle. I was taking a big chance with a lot to lose. I remember clearly when my bookkeeper, my mother, informed me how bad my financial situation was. I owed the banks a lot of money at a time when no money was coming in. Maybe I should have cut my losses and gone to work for someone else. Maybe not. After all, I had a family and a responsibility. To make a long story short, I continued on. I believed in magic and that what I was doing was not only possible, it was life’s plan for me. The journey wasn’t easy and it might have been the reason why I have less hair today. I reached my destination. I paid back everyone and everything I owed and found what I was looking for. Was it the right thing to do? The answer was only clear after it was clear. Was it the opportunity or the belief in the opportunity that made the difference? Only life knows and I can only guess. We all experience setbacks. Many times we don’t share our setbacks and they remain a secret. Life knows I have experienced many setbacks and continue to do so. We all experience them. The way we think and how we act is the difference which makes the difference. Thank you Robert Dilts!
I share this short story with you because sometimes we need a sign or something that will trigger us to do it. To go for it and believe in magic and trust in what’s not always known. Maybe this post is that sign or that trigger that sparks something that needs to be sparked. My life has not been easy. It’s full of volatility and chance. Good times and not so good times. For those who know me, know I believe that life’s best moments happen when a good idea meets magic. You know what kind of magic I am taking about.
I read a quote recently and maybe now is a good time to share it. Here it is: “If people aren’t laughing at your dreams, your dreams aren’t big enough”.
I know it’s going to be ok because I believe in magic! Do you?
Enjoy the ride!
