You can go from where you are to where you want to be

You don’t have to go where you don’t want to be to get where you want to be.  You can go from where you are to where you want to be.

— Abraham


In other words, you don’t have to pay your dues.

You don’t have to work hard.

You don’t have to spend time in the trenches.

You don’t have to learn the ropes.

You can simply do what you want to do.

You can simply be who you want to be.

You can simply go where you want to go.

We see examples of this almost every day.  They’re easy to see in the world of entertainment.  Just look at a show like American Idol or X Factor.  People show up there who have no experience, no formal training.  They walk on stage and blow our minds.

The most recent season of X Factor had multiple examples, the most glaring of which was three teenage guys – two brothers and a friend – who called themselves ‘Third Harmony’.  These guys are stereotypical ‘skater dudes’, bumping through life like the title characters from ‘Bill and Ted’s Amazing Adventure’, or Sean Penn’s character, Jeff Spicoli, from ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’.  They sort of just decided to form a singing group a short time before the show auditions.  I expected nothing when they hit the stage.  I was completely blown away by their performance, as were Simon Cowell and the other judges on the show.

My emotional reaction to their talent was interesting.  First reaction: jealousy/envy/etc.  “Little bastards shouldn’t be that good…”  This was quickly followed by the realization that they were never going to have to work a day in their lives.  More jealousy.  Then the Law of Attraction perspective kicked in, and I had to admit that these kids were inspiring.  They had simply decided to do something they love to do, and then let the Universe deliver their opportunity.  More envy.  They’re going to be set for life, playing around, singing, partying, chasing the girls away.  They simply don’t know that it’s supposed to be a long, hard road to success.  They just decided to go directly to the top.  Do not pass Go.  Do not collect $200.

Why don’t the rest of us do the same?

I think in large part it’s because we don’t quite have the paint-by-numbers instructions.  So, for the new year, I’ve decided to write out the steps.  They are simple and easy to follow.  Let’s see how well you and I do this year…

  1. Set your intention on what you want.
  2. Do your best to feel what it will be like to have it.
  3. Roll around in that feeling for a while.
  4. Send the wish off, and allow the Universe to bring the manifestation back to you.
  5. Release any anxiety about your desire.
  6. Relinquish any urge to control how or when or where it will come to you.
  7. Anticipate it with joy.


Wishing you the best in 2013
