Wouldn't we all dearly love to be able to set our circuits on positive cruise control, where one good thing after another happens to us with little or any effort required from us? Could you imagine living a turbo-charged lifestyle where one great day is immediately followed by an even better day? Sure you can, we all can. Imagining is easy.
How would it feel to have all the things you have ever dreamed of having and doing all the things you always dreamed of doing? It would feel unbelievably great, wouldn't it? This kind of positive powered lifestyle sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it? Maybe yes and then again ... maybe no.
By clearly conceiving the lifestyle you wish to lead in your mind and combining it with an unfailing conviction in your heart that you can make it come true, you exhibit the type of positive power needed to turn your dreams into reality. Throughout history, millions upon millions of success stories have been lived out in this very fashion.
The success these individuals achieved wasn't necessarily because they were smarter, better or even luckier than those around them. In fact, a majority of these success stories were simply ordinary people, just like you and me. Closer examination of these "lucky" folks, who came from every corner of our country and from every type of background imaginable, does show they all had something in common.
These champions consistently exhibited extraordinary vision combined with uncompromising commitment. They were those courageous individuals who decided it was their turn to win and their time to enjoy the life they deserve. They conceived it in their minds, believed it in their hearts, then went out and achieved it with every day action. So should you.
When you can conceive a dream in your mind, believe it in your heart and then pursue this dream with all of the purpose and passion you can muster, you will start making your wishes come true one after another after another.
The moment you enthusiastically seize the moment and start making things happen, it is like discovering a magic lamp with a mystical Jeannie stored inside. When you begin seeing and seizing the magic moments of life, you'll get what you've always dreamed about and more.
Your promising future is in good hands, because it is in your hands. You've got the power, so why not choose to use it? Go ahead, make a wish and then make it come true for you. After all, your wish is your command.
