I began thinking about belief last night during the Superbowl. Anyone who is not a football fan, or doesn’t know the Giant’s motto – Believe. That’s what they did in spades – Eli and team knew in their minds it was a fact they would come home with the Lombardi trophy. Congratulations to Big Blue
You can work that same magic in your own life.
Today I had a wonderful lunch with a person who keeps me grounded. She said “I just don’t get mad anymore – I just believe that the right thing is waiting for me.” She’s one of the most positive people around. She’s not a Pollyanna, and thinks that everything is perfect. Rather she just has an understanding that what is the right path will appear. She doesn’t stress – rather just plugs along – and amazing things happen for her.
I’ve seen it happen in my own life – especially when I step out of the way.
I had a mission to date this one person. Every single day I said with conviction it would happen. I didn’t give up for a long time. Finally when it happened and this person stepped back into my life (moving into my neighborhood from another state) I was elated. Then after spending some time with this person I realized I could have used my belief powers for a higher purpose. The relationship was a disaster.
I came to realize that belief can be a double edge sword. Especially if your focused on another person, place or thing. Sometimes you need to shoot your arrow a little higher.
I notice when I force things into my own “plan” they usually go haywire. Then when I step back and just let the flow happen, miracles present themselves. You need to focus your belief onto yourself first, then the right person, place or thing will present itself – not the other way around.
So today the message -”Believe” is a vital part of the success formula. You can believe in the final outcome, but you can’t direct every piece of the plan. Rather you just need to believe this is where you’re supposed to be. What has been given to you is part of your creation. Finally don’t ask for something without conviction.
Enough for Monday -
