Welcome to #InspireAfricaProject! One of the great strategies for success is to act as if you are already where you want to be. This means thinking like, talking like, dressing like, acting like, and feeling like the person who has already achieved your goal. Acting as if sends powerful commands to your subconscious mind to find creative ways to achieve your goals. It programs the reticular activating system (RAS) in your brain to start noticing anything that will help you succeed.
One of my favourite authors, Jack Carnfield shared this life changing story about this phenomenon. “In the late 70s, I met a seminar leader who had just returned from Australia. I decided that I too, wanted to travel and speak around the globe. I asked myself what I would need to become an international consultant. I called the passport office and asked them to send me an application. I purchased a clock that showed all international time zones. I had business cards printed with the words ‘International Consultant’ on them.
Finally, I decided that Australia would be the first place I would like to go, so I went to a travel agency and got a huge travel poster featuring the Sydney Opera House, Ayers Rock, and a kangaroo-crossing sign. Every morning while I ate my breakfast, I looked at that poster on my refrigerator and imagined being in Australia.
Less than a year later, I was invited to conduct seminars in Sydney and Brisbane. As soon as I started acting as if I were an international consultant, the universe responded by treating me like one-the powerful Law of Attraction at work.”
If you have read any of my books, am sure you would have come across the Law of Attraction. It’s one of those laws that are dear to my heart. You can become anything you want to be in this life if you can apply this law into your life.
This Law of Attraction simply states that like attracts like. We are like a living magnet, and we attract things or circumstances into our lives that are in line with our most dominant thought! It simply shows that the moment you start to meditate on a picture, your mind will build a force field to magnetize the content of your thought. Any picture that occupies our minds on daily basis will be printed out in real life one day. That is why you must not allow negative pictures to occupy your mind. You are what you think about all day long.
The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It’s a law which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will attract it. If you focus on positive thoughts, and have goals that you aim to achieve you will find a way to achieve them with a massive action.
I have accomplished what looks like impossible tasks by applying this law. The Law of Attraction is actually scriptural. The wise man said, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” Proverbs 23:7. Whatever you imaging you will attract. If you’re always afraid of accident, and you allow the picture to occupy your mind all the time, you will definitely attract accident one day.
You must place before you the pictures of the things you want to accomplish, not the pictures of the things we hate. When NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) was working on putting a man on the moon, they had a huge picture of the moon covering the entire wall, from floor to the ceiling, on their main construction area. Everyone was clear on the goal, and they reached that goal two years ahead of schedule!
Kindly place in front of you the picture of the kind of future you want. Most people are completely engrossed with their negative past that they don’t have any future in view. Do you know that 2030 is just thirteen years from now? What are you looking toward to be doing or having in the next thirteen years? Look at what God said; “If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what He reveals, they are most blessed.” Proverbs 29:18 (MSG)….To be continued.
