(Continued from: Quantum Leaps in Thinking – Part I)
We left off last month with my advice to daily contemplate and affirm: “Nothing is impossible to one who dares to believe and acts daily to actualize that belief.” If you followed this advice, two key points will now be resonating within you. First, that “daring to believe” will open up ideas and possibilities that you hadn’t even conceived of prior to exercising your mind in this way. That’s the way it works. You always start with your thoughts. Secondly, that believing is not enough, no matter how much faith and certainty that you have in that belief. It must be followed by action. What kind of action? Daily action designed specifically to actualize your vision. It is a two-part process. One without the other will not allow you to succeed in a quantum way.
But there is a step even before believing and acting. One must know, understand and be very clear about what it is you want to achieve. You must have not some vague abstract concept, but rather a burning desire for something to happen. It can be as large a goal as eliminating world poverty, or as small as losing ten pounds, but whatever it is, it must be clear and understandable. So make your decisions. Nothing will happen in a quantum way till you have clearly defined goals.
Once a goal has been set, your next task is to believe it can be achieved. Quantum leaps don’t happen for those who simply hope for the best. You must “dare to believe.” You must condition your mind to see the end result clearly and believe it will happen. Fortunately, Mind Power exercises such as visualization and affirmations prime the mind to believe. When you visualize daily, seeing yourself as having already achieved the goals, this creates powerful vibrations in the matrix and attracts the ideas and opportunities that allow one to achieve it. Don’t wonder how it will happen, or what all the steps will be in order for success to happen. You never get to know ahead of time what strange and mysterious route success will take. All you need to know is what steps to take today. Today is your point of power. Look after today in thought and action and more will be revealed to you tomorrow and more again the day after. But first you believe. Belief comes from working daily, following a designed Mind Power program. Belief also comes from having role models. To know that others before you have achieved similar results in similar circumstances gives you confidence that you too can do it if you put your mind and effort into achieving your goal.
If your goal is to make social changes in our world, then you can study and identify with the beliefs and actions of Ghandi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa, or Rex Wyler, the co-founder of Green Peace, to name but a few. Not to mention countless men and women who act locally in shelters, food banks, and numerous non-profit organizations. Learn to think and act as they thought and acted. Pick up their energy and spirit by learning how they brought their ideals into fruition.
