For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness
is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
– Martha Washington
Naturally, I repeatedly refer to my concept of “Thinking Magically” as an integral part of my coaching sessions. For me, it is more important to empower you than to simply talk about your Past, Present, and Future (although I am well aware that discussions of where you have been, where you are, and where you are going are necessary components to a practical, success and happiness toolkit).
To see where you are at the moment and whether you could use more Magic in your life, I recommend asking the following questions:
Do I believe in myself?
Do I believe in my own Magic?
Does it matter if I have lived at all?
If you have answered “no” to any of these simple questions, this might be an insight that a lifestyle change is in order.
You see, I have found that the true purpose of Magic is this:
To take your fantasies and transform them into an incredible reality.
To make the transformation lasting and gratifying, there must be at least three essential ingredients at work:
In other words, start asking yourself what the theme of your life is (or what you want it to be).
Do you have a purpose to what you do and what you believe and what you say?
If you don’t, then perhaps now is the time to start creating patterns, habits, and actions that work for you the way you want your life to be – not the way your life is now. After all, do you want the sum total of your existence to be “so what?” I think not or you wouldn’t be reading this article in the first place.
Once you have that new meaning and direction, then ask yourself whether you have an unshakable belief in what you are doing, in who you are, and what you want to achieve.
Do you deserve the outcome you want?
Finally, can you still be amazed? Wonder is not just about being surprised, it is the mindset of looking forward to the Future and expecting to be awed! Find the Magic! Be the Magic!
May the Magic be with you! Always.
