Focus, focus, focus, and discipline, is the name of the game. Laser-like focus aka “this is my story and I’m sticking to it no matter what” is how you create your reality aka manifest your dreams. My most favorite flagrant, flamboyant and entertaining example of mastery in laser-like focus and discipline is the one and only Mohammed Ali. Wikipedia sums it up nicely: He “was an American professional boxer, activist, and philanthropist. He is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures of the 20th century. From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial, and polarizing figure both inside and outside the ring.”
I love Ali because of his determination and conviction in spite of the odds against him. He had a vision for himself and created a story about it in his mind and believed it in his heart. First, he had to convince himself that it was possible and achievable, then he had to act on this newfound truth. He spoke about it as if it was already done, did the hard work and took the necessary risks to make it a physical reality, in spite of all the evidence around him that tried to tell him it would never happen and he was crazy. And he did it in true, unique Ali fashion: loud, proud and pretty! Indeed, he was the greatest and a beautiful floating butterfly that stung like a bee.
Mel’s Two Cents: Like Ali, you too can endure, persevere and overcome obstacles and challenges despite the naysayers, worrywarts and fear mongers in your midst. Like Ali, you too can dance around and through the perceived difficulties that are there to strength your faith muscles and push you towards victory. I dare you to try!!!
Until next time.
