Thinking Magically™ | How to Accomplish the Impossible
Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.
– Napoleon Bonaparte
Magicians get it all the time! You have, too. How many times have you heard the phrase, That’s impossible! or That can’t be done! or This is hopeless! In the past, you might have thought or felt these same things. But what if I told you that the concept of impossible is really just an excuse for defeat? It’s an opinion, a way of thinking, and an attitude. The idea of impossible, however, does not have to be a certainty for you! In fact, many of you have heard me quote one of my favorite authors, Richard Bach, and his saying: You are never given a wish without being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however. Those who manifest their dreams systematically and with sustainability know that anything they truly want to achieve is possible provided they use some elbow grease to materialize what they want.
So . . . how would your life be different if you start to constantly act, think, and feel with certainty and as if everything you imagine and truly want to manifest is not only feasible, it is achievable? From here on out, things are immediately changing for the better for you because you can now begin to understand that with sufficient passion, eagerness, and commitment you can accomplish anything come hell or high water. In other words, you can achieve what others might regard as impossible because you are now determined to attain your dreams regardless of any difficulty.
The first massive step in easily doing the impossible, is simply deciding not to share the unempowering cynical and unenthusiastic beliefs of others. Those who like to escape what they see as the punishment of of life – those who want to ensure they are absolved of failure – have convinced themselves that the day-to-day world is too difficult. If they have to risk something more than mere survival, the task becomes quickly labeled as impossible. Their belief in the impossibility of success, then, almost becomes an achievement in and of itself for these naysayers. And when someone like you actually accomplishes the impossible, they become more entrenched in their preferred truth and you might as well have just walked through a wall (being the massively successful magician that you are). From your perspective, of course, you don’t walk through walls because for you those particular walls don’t exist in the same form, meaning, and impact as they do for others. In fact, for you, I’m willing to bet that you don’t see the walls at all! (I’ll let you in on a tremendous secret: that’s really how all magic works!)
The second thing you must do . . . is determine that you must do whatever it takes to accomplish your dream. You must be create an obligation, compulsion, and absolute need in yourself. This is not a commitment to others. This is a dedication by you to you for you!
The next thing you are going to do is be ready, willing, and able to pay the cost of accomplishing the impossible (you need all three components). You are no longer going to settle for anything short of what you want. Let others be realistic. Let others get out of what they think is harm’s way. Let others be tedious, uninteresting, and mind-numbing. Get carried away with desire. Become consumed with the passion of achievement. Be heroic! And know that there is a full price to be paid for such defiance of the norm: you might lose in the eyes of others. On the way to your dream and your success, there will be fiascos, obstacles, and dead-ends. But you know what? Welcome them all! Every one of those disasters (the ones you experience and the others will never have the gift of knowing) helps to guide you towards a constant and nourishing triumph; a small price to pay indeed for even greater glory.
Having read this, ask yourself, what’s different now? Is your perception of yourself now one of impending accomplishment or jubilation at what is yet to come? Perhaps you feel new happiness at your change of mind or pride in the designs you have for your preferred future. Or maybe you have been inspired and stirred up to take massive action or you now have the conviction in your own goals. Whatever that difference is, use that now and take a moment to write down – really write it out – all the impossible things you are going to accomplish!
One more thing . . . don’t you dare let your curiosity at the novelty of this turn into complacency once you have an understanding of it all (or think you do). Doing the impossible requires you to do such things repeatedly and often. Oh, and once you achieve what others find impossible, be prepared to spend a great deal of time reacting to people who are reacting to your ability to do the impossible!
