I enjoy mountain biking in The Everglades.
I have The National Park Annual Pass that allows me unlimited access to bike trails.
The trails are a thrill!
It’s you out there all by yourself.
It isn’t rare to see a crocodile, vulture, and other type of wild life.
I love pedaling through the trails with music blasted in my ear.
It’s my way to disconnect.
Below are pictures taken during recent trips.
During my last trip, I stopped in the middle of a trail and began to think.
The picture above was that same moment.
I thought about my accomplishments and how far I’ve come.
How success has arrived at my doorstep.
And I couldn’t help but dwell on the fact that there really is something to the whole “thoughts become things” craze.
In other words, what you think about often is what you attract into your life.
When the book The Secret was released, many people were claiming it changed their lives.
I read it and also watched the movie.
While the idea of thinking about what I want in order to achieve it sounded awesome, it didn’t seem realistic.
How in the world can thinking about something bring it into reality?
If that were truly the case, EVERYONE would have what they wanted.
Well, I was wrong.
You really do attract and manifest whatever you focus on the most.
Not what you think about sometimes, but what you think about most of the time.
See the difference?
Most people talk about what they don’t want more often than what they do want.
Consequently, their dominant thoughts are what they get.
“You are where you are because that is EXACTLY where you want to be…Whether you’ll admit that or not.” -Earl Nightingale
It’s not something that happens due to magic or any other sort of “energy” in the universe.
It happens because you program your RAS (Reticular activating system) to seek out ways to manifest your goal in the FASTEST way possible.
(Read my article How the law of attraction really works.)
I remember lying in bed in 2014 watching my ceiling fan go round and round.
I knew exactly what I wanted.
Earn $100 per day online.
Once I achieved it, I wanted to write a book to show others how to do it.
Both goals were a success.
However, you can safely bet everything you own that earning $100 per day online was my dominant thought.
And it didn’t happen by accident.
I made it that way!
Every morning as soon as I woke up (and every night before bed) I’d write down ten times:
I earn $100 per day online.
I didn’t skip a single day. (Important)
The more days went by, the more things started to happen.
Ideas began rushing into my head.
A surge of motivation to work would rush through my body like a cold chill.
I’d stumble upon things that made earning $100 per day possible.
It was weird.
It literally felt like there was some sort of energy or magic going on in the universe.
And who knows, maybe there is.
But whether it’s magic or just your most dominant thought in your RAS, one thing is for sure…
When you begin achieving goals (BIG goals) you realize you really can get anything you put your mind to.
You thought process changes.
The word “impossible” vanishes from your vocabulary.
The world changes.
Not the whole world, just yours.
You see things from a different angle.
You finally understand how it all works.
Why some people achieve great things and others don’t.
It’s no longer a “secret”.
As long as you write your goals daily and take action, eventually, they will be part of your reality.
I’ve said it many, many, many, many times…
Success is a discipline!
It’s not luck!
It’s not some talent you’re born with!
It’s not anything you’ve fooled yourself into believing.
Just do what successful people do.
….And do it DAILY.
Work hard and don’t quit.
I’ve moved on to goals bigger than earning $100 per day online.
I can earn that in my sleep.
But when I first started, I didn’t know how to do any of the above.
I had no clue what affiliate marketing was.
No idea, my friend.
But the more I wrote down “I earn $100 per day online”, the more these things popped up.
The more I thought about them.
And the more I was motivated to study and figure out how they worked.
Little by little, my success happened all on its own.
I couldn’t run from it if I tried.
You have to start somewhere.
It’s best to start with small goals so that your self-belief increases.
The more you achieve, the more you believe in yourself, and the longer you’ll persist in moments of despair.
Read that last sentence again.
There’s more wisdom in those 19 words than you’ll find in most books.
Everything you want is waiting for you.
Like the famous song goes “You can get it if you really want”.
…But will you persist until you get it, or will you quit at the first sign of defeat?
