Many years ago, I was traveling and stayed in a beautiful four-star hotel. It was different from anything I’d ever experienced growing up. I wanted to hold that image and have all the beauty and luxury of that place burned into the cells of my mind.
I was on my way to fly home. One of the biggest snowstorms in history was causing all the flights to be canceled. I remember sitting in a limo and having a conversation with my mentor, Bob Proctor. I told him I wasn’t sure if I’d make it home, due to the weather. He looked at me, dead serious, and asked, “When are you going to start practicing what we teach?”
In today’s episode I’m sharing that story and revealing details about it that I’ve never told anyone. You’ll learn:
- Why “holding the image” of what you want is so powerful (even while everyone around you is complaining)
- Why you don’t have to be bound by the ‘rules’ of your circumstances
- How I found myself at a hotel that was a hell hole—and made a decision, “I’m not staying here. I’m going home.”
- Why you should never let the facts of an old belief control the decision you make for you want
- How many people have come up to my team and said, “I’m going to be one of your best students”—and then we never hear from them again (because they don’t have the belief in themselves)
- There’s a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it
- No one is ready for a thing, until he BELIEVES he can acquire it
No matter what you want in life, your job is to hold the image of it in your mind—and to actively believe it. Build that image, make the decision, and manifest something new in your life.
As Napoleon Hill says, “No more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity than is required to accept misery and poverty.”
