Who else thinks Will Smith has studied the law of attraction?
As you can guess, today's post is all about mind set. If you watched the video above, you'll see some great examples of how mindset can change not only an individual's life, but also the lives of a whole society, even a generation which in turn creates a legacy for future generations to build on and improve. It all starts with a thought!
Some of us in this world, dream about creating a different life for ourselves than we currently have. The power of a dream can truly be life changing. If you know anything about the Law of attraction, you'll understand what I'm talking about. Confucius said "he who says he can, and he who says he can't are usually both right!" If your soul desire is to make enough money to pay the bills at the end of the month, then guess what.
One brick at a time
I'll refer to the example that Will Smith used in the video above and expand on it a little. He said "You don't try to build a wall! You don't say; I'm gonna build the biggest, baddest greatest wall that's ever been built, you don't start there! You say - I'm gonna lay this brick; as perfectly as a brick can be laid, and you do that every single day, and soon you have a wall!"
This isn't necessarily anything to do with the law of attraction, but it is to do with taking action. If you don't lay that brick today; will it stop the wall from being built? Probably not! But if you didn't lay that brick every day for a year? My point is, it's all well and good, wanting something. You can have anything that you want, you just have to believe it's possible and build at it, one brick at a time.
Building other peoples futures, leads to greatness!
If you're in the position to help other people achieve their dream then you should. I have dealt with some people in this world who; yes - are successful, but don't really appreciate the power of this concept, and will therefore, never be great.
Zig Ziglar said "help as many people get what they want, and you can have everything that you want!"
Will Smith said "If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time."
You have to believe
There's a certain delusional quality that all successful people HAVE to have. I love this quote. I know that I'm delusional in the pursuit of my dreams, and I also know that I have to be like that in order to achieve them. I have to believe that my dream is possible, or there's no point in having one. To society, this may seem like a form of escapism from reality or delusion, but I believe I can, therefore I will!
"Being realistic is the most commonly travelled road to mediocrity." Will Smith used the example of Edison inventing the light bulb and the Wright brothers inventing the aeroplane to illustrate his point. REALITY KILLS DREAMS!
If you have a dream, make it possible by believing it and acting it out! T.E Lawrence said "All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."
Anyway, I hope this post has added value to your life and if you're feeling a bit down about things, I hope you feel better now. Watch the video again and go lay some bricks!
