What do YOUR eyes say?
Several years ago I read a book which was to change my life. “The Magic of Believing” by Claude M. Bristol posits that one can achieve any goal by harnessing the extraordinary power of one’s own belief in one’s self. As I absorbed this, it came to me that I’d put this system to work many times without being consciously aware of it. If you’re focused on a particular goal without letup, you do tend to realize that goal.
This can be as simple or as complex as your individual goals.
Over the last few years, I’ve heard a lot about “The Secret” and “Laws of Attraction.” I really like Bristol’s approach, though. He calls this area the science of ‘mind stuff’ and discusses techniques for how to leverage the power of an your mind.
In the end, it all comes down to ideas. Everything you see around you started with an idea. Ideas require ACTION in order to bring them to life. One needs to have a specific goal and then must “begin with the ending” in mind.
Think of planning a road trip. You decided on the destination first. Then you figured out the stops along the way. You planned which roads you’d take, where you’d stay and what you’d see. You began with a vision about where you’d end up. That’s how this works. There’s no mysticism involved. Bristol says “Thought attracts that upon which it is directed.” Think about it.
There is a kind of ‘magic’ in this, though. When you believe certain things, you act differently. And when you act differently, others react to you in a different way. There’s a kind of ‘electricity’ in how this takes place. You carry yourself differently when you know who you are and where you’re going. You change, and everything and everyone around you changes. It is a kind of magic.
I expect to come back to this topic again. It’s the reason I named this blog the way I did. I’m interested in a lot of different things and hold opinions about most of them. I’m all over the proverbial ‘map.’ What doesn’t change, though, is this belief I have in the power of ideas coupled with directed energy. It’s unbeatable.
So what are YOU thinking about?
