“Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”-Mahatma Ghandi
I’m a firm believer, and always have been, that what you put out there comes back to you. That you can speak about something so much, you will eventually speak it into existence. I remember wanting to start my bail bond company so badly that I was talking about it to people like it already existed. I was describing how I was going to decorate my home office, and everyone was like ……..
And then again, with my blog. And people looked at me like I was crazy. They also mocked me. But I kept talking about it, and working on it behind the scenes.
And then again, with the move to NYC. I would talk about it to people so frequently, for so long, that they thought I was moving soon. In reality, I had no around-the-corner plan to move. But yet, it happened.
But here’s the secret. Your heart has to be in it, fully. Behind each blog post is a plan, a process, and a lot of my heart. On days when I feel like I can’t give 150%, I don’t give at all. A lot of people ask what the magic formula is, and that’s it. Passion. Heart. Drive.
People don’t gain muscle by accident. When you see a bodybuilder at the gym, you don’t wonder how they got those muscles. You already know – they put the work in. So, find a dream. Think about it. Talk about it. Talk about it some more. Talk about it like it’s real. Tell all your friends and family about it. Make sure your actions, and your habits are backing up the talk. Believe you can do it, and you can. And you will.
But be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.
