Do thoughts become things…

I ask if thoughts become things because I’m really beginning to believe that they do. And apparently this quote from Frank Lloyd Wright – “The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.” tells me that I’m not alone.

So, I believe Wright to be right. (I just wanted to say that.)

Whether Wright is right or Wright is wrong – we’ll never really know. But, if they do – here is the formula in its most simplistic form.

Thought plus emotion = thing.

What I mean is that you have a thought, it creates a vibration, the vibration becomes much stronger when you attach emotion to it. If this were all there was to the equation then you would be able to sit in your home and think of what you want and feel all the positive feelings that you would feel if you already owned the thing you’re thinking of and – WHAM! – special delivery – the Universe would FedEx it to you.

But, although it is not quite as simple as that – it’s not that difficult either.

You do have to be totally clear on what it is that you want.  And state it in a positive way.  So, if you want to not be in debt say – I want more than enough money flowing to and through me for everything that I desire.  Do not say – I don’t want any more debt.  You don’t want to have the word debt and the word want in the same sentence.  Just trust me on this one.

Now, I’m going to have you hold that thought.  Here’s a little something you have to do first.  Make room in your life for the new thing.  Clean out your clothes closets, have a garage sale – give as much stuff away as you can.  This goes for the stuff between your ears also.  Whenever you have a doubt or a negative thought – get rid of it and replace it with a positive one.  You cannot get what you desire if you doubt it’s arrival.  It wold be like ordering a meal in a restaurant and not believing they are going to bring it to you.  Of course they are.

Actually, I would start cleaning out your house and head of everything that doesn’t please you anymore.  Then, while you’re in this process, get very clear on what it is you want.  Attach a positive emotion, feel like you already have what you are asking for.  It will feel wonderful – so feel those feelings.  This supercharges your desire.

Now, take the first action step that comes to mind, perhaps you want a car.  Go down to the dealer and test drive it.

The Universe is waiting to give you what you want – remember that.

Believe and have faith.

Thomas Jefferson and the pursuit of Happiness

“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Thank you. Thomas Jefferson, for writing those beautiful words that declared America’s Independence from the King of England in 1776.

I think it’s very interesting that he chose life first, liberty second and last – the pursuit of happiness. If you are reading this blog post, then you are in possession of the first – life. And, if you are a resident of the United States- then by default you have the second also – liberty. But, how is that third one working out for you – the pursuit of happiness?

It’s one of our unalienable rights, handed to us at birth and yet…

Think of a dream that you’ve let gather dust. It was something that was important to you when you thought of it. What is it? And why is it still not a reality?

Then ask yourself – is this dream still important to me? This is an important question. If it feels like it is, the it’s time to start making it a reality.

If you don’t live your dreams – you’re living someone else’s dreams. And, is that the way you really envisioned going through life?

Personality – You’ve got one – use it

Why do I start this blog talking about personality? Because it sets you and your business if you have one, apart from every other person on the planet.

I’ll show you mine – if you’ll show me yours. I think I got in trouble for that in grade school, but that’s another post.

Example: I’m a mall walker, I do 2.5 miles about 5 times a week. I would rather walk the mall, than my neighborhood, but that’s just me. As I walk past the stores, I notice the attitude that the mannequins have, the way they are posing, in Nordstroms, some of the female mannequins are naked. I’ll let you guess whether or not they’re naked in Brooks Brothers. You can tell the personality of the store by the decor and the music. Abercrombie and Fitch tells me that unless I have something in common with barely clothed teen boys – go to Ann Taylor. The music is blaring, it’s very dark and hip and cool and totally not me. They might as well have a big sign out front saying – you’re too damn old to shop here, but come in if you’re shopping for your kids.

That’s attitude, it’s personality – and it works. It identifies Abercrombie, tells me who they are and whether or not I should be there. They don’t care who they turn off with the pictures and the music – they’re secure that their raving fans will find them.

This is a great lesson if you’re in business – let your attitude show. It will lure your ideal clients to you like a magnet. And it will keep the clients you don’t want shopping somewhere else.

If I do this blogging thing right, then you’ll be able to tell a lot about me by my posts, the videos I put up, the way my blog looks and if you like what I say and how I say it, you’ll come back.

And, if not, you may be at Abercrombie and that’s cool with me…
