In 1992, Jim Carrey wrote himself a check for $10,000,000 for acting services rendered and he dated it for Thanksgiving 1995. He gave himself 3 years to be able to cash the check. He took that check out daily and looked at it, often going to the Hollywood Hills to see himself in Hollywood with that check. One week before the date on the check, he was offered 10 million dollars for his role in Dumb and Dumber. When you see the world from the perspective of what is inside of you, you live into that vision.
Almost every single person who found themselves in success began with the understanding that there is a different way of looking at the world. They understood that what the rest of the world, the 99% were seeing was simply an option created by the ego to keep people in check. These life-changers have understood that when you align your inner world with the spirit, then Heaven and Earth will conspire to help you achieve your objectives. It is in our definiteness of purpose that we become the person that we see in our mind's eye.
Will Smith once said that the you have to decide definitely who you will be and then go out and get your dream without looking at anything else. We all know that the world will try to beat us down and to steal our dreams. The "world" is just another way of saying "ego," though. The spirit desires your fulfillment. You create your inner world by giving up the fabric of the outer world and seeing who you truly are. Michael Jordan saw that he was the greatest basketball player in the world, even when he was cut from his high school basketball team. Because he saw who he was in his inner world, he worked to weave the fabric of that reality for the rest of the world to see.
Never forget that you MUST go after your dreams. Stop seeing the shoulds and the wants and the ought-to's. Change those to MUSTS because you know, unequivocally that you are living into the truth about who you were meant to be. Today, as I witness what the world would create, I will choose to see things differently. I will choose to paint my own canvas in life and I will, I must, take action to complete my masterpiece! What will you see and what will you do today?
To Your Success,
