When I have some really exciting things to share, I get this sense of urgency – I think, “How am I going to make sure that everyone reads this?” And then I remember that those who are ready for it will read it, and those who are not ready, they won’t read it, at least not until they are ready.
What I want to share with you today is from the inspiration I got from last night’s seminar I went. It concerns the power you have right now to make decisions for yourself about what you want.
In the seminar, a young university student shared his story about how a single ‘decision’ he made a year ago that changed his life totally, even under the situation his parents strongly disagree and against.
Year ago, he got introduced to a network marketing business, he saw the opportunity and start to work on it; in that time, his tuition fees, monthly expense etc are all come from his parents and himself earn nothing, his parents are working hard and working late to support his study, he feels very bad about it and he wants his parents have a better life instead of just work, earn salary to support him.
After he got into the business, he starts to work and study hard at the same time. He believe he can success. But his parents was very upset about his decision, they wanted their son focus and concentrate on his study, get good grade and find a secure corporate job after graduate. So they give him lots of hard time, not accept and not support his business at all.
Well, as story goes, after a year hard work, now every month, he makes $500 and his grade is between A and B. He is only 20 years old, he made his choice and he created his own life.
See, one of the most creative things you can do is making a decision, the “creative” I mean here is causing something to be created, making something happen.
Whether you want to believe it or not, it is true that your thoughts create, either on purpose or by default, your life experiences. What you think about, you attract it. What you think about in tandem with emotion, you attract more quickly. And when you make a decision about your life, you repeat the contents of that decision, with emotion, on a regular basis, you have found the key to creating exactly what you are seeking. It cannot happen any other way. The Universe is not a void.
Every time when you think about your business, your work or your life, if you have thoughts of defeat, if you think, example, “this is not working, I must find something else to join that might work. Of course they are all scams, so I’m just going to get ripped off again…” And so it goes, your thoughts have left success in the dust of your last failure.
If you are not as success in your life (private and professional) as you could be. It is simply because that you have not made the decision that you will be successful.
Some of you are even stuck in the mindset of that other people should take the responsibility to make you rich, while you do nothing, even without trying. Is that possible? Have you ever seen a business work in that way? Even with the lottery, you have to buy a ticket to win. If you want zero dollars in exchange for no effort, there nothing will happen.
Now, decide what you want, access the feeling of what it would be like to have what it is you have decided you want, start to create with the most powerful gift you have: your thoughts – “conscious creating” ; go forth in your day, expecting results, and don’t give failure a second glance.
Then repeat often. You may be saying, “But Ann, I don’t know what I want. How do I start?” A wise person once said, “Start by saying, ‘I want to know what I want.’ Just that simple question will bring things into your awareness, about which you might say, “Yes, that is something I want” and you can start the process of bringing it into your experience.
