Let’s talk about belief for a second.
Let’s say that YOUR audacious thought was… that you are the greatest Chef on the planet!
Emeril, Flay, Lagasse…. Nothing compared to you. You are the one…..
Now, somewhere, in the back of your mind… maybe in the front of your mind, you say…
“It’s not true. I’m not better than Bobby Flay! I’m not! You’re telling me to believe a lie!”
Yup, do it Right NOW!
But you say again… “It’s not true! You want me to lie to myself? You’re asking me to believe something that’s not true, it’s a lie!”
Well…. Yes and no.
To begin with…
We all believe shit that’s not true, ALL THE TIME! We do…. For many of us it’s negative shit. Sadly it’s often shit about ourselves. Often our beliefs are composed of pure ignorance. Often these “truths” are considered common sense.
Think about it. At one time it was “common sense” to believe that the earth was flat. Sail too far, and you’d fall off the edge. Or that the Earth was the center of the solar system. Or that Women couldn’t be doctors, lawyers engineers. Or that you have fat genes, you’re heavy because you were born that way. Or you’ll never be able to be a success, you’re a loser, failure, yada, yada, yada…..
Those thoughts are lies as well. Yet we BELIEVE THEM we live our lives based on these fallacious beliefs. All day every day. The choices we make, good bad indifferent are based on these false beliefs. That’s why we do what we do, we are where we are.
So, my assertion, is this…. If we can believe negative lies to our detriment, we can believe positive “lies” to our benefit!
I say we can…. And ….. didja notice that in the previous sentence, the second time I wrote lies I put it in quotation marks? Look back….. See it? You know why? Because technically…. They’re not lies….
You see, because we believe them… we manifest the thoughts as true…. So if we believe we’re supposed to be heavy…. We live our lives that way. If you’re supposed to be poor, a failure, a loser, a clerk in a menial job, a dishwasher…. We live our lives and make the lie the truth.
So again I make the assertion, if we can manifest negative lies into truth, we can do the same with positive ones! If we manifest negative, harmful, ignorant thoughts. We can do the same with wonderful, amazing, truly AUDACIOUS thoughts!!!!
Here’s an example.
Recently I saw an ESPN piece about Lebron James. He talked about him growing up, and he said, he believed that he was the best basketball player in the world. More importantly. He lived his life as though it was true…. Not that it WOULD BE, could be, should be true…. But that it WAS true RIGHT THEN!!!
Now. At the time he was thinking and acting like this, there was this guy named Michael Jordan… you’ve heard of him. Well most of the world believed that Jordan was the best. Even now, there are those who contend that Kobe Bryant is the best in the world…. But you know what?
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE WORLD THINKS!
It doesn’t. What mattered for him, then and now is what happens in the universe that exists in the 4 inches of space (roughly) between Lebron’s left ear and right ear. In that universe, HE IS THE GREATEST!
And he manifests that in his life. Daily.
So, dear reader…. This must be true for us as well…..
We must not just find our audacious thought but BELIEVE them.
And so we will! So get prepared!
Have you taken a minute to think about YOUR audacious thoughts? Have you picked out 3? What are you waiting for? Come on!!! And no… not “I want a million dollars” that’s not audacious!!!”
Come on… what would TRULY make you happy???
Give it some thought…. We start in a few days!
