Believing is Seeing!

By Rusty @russellpurkiss
“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”

The act of believing is so powerful and most of us think we need to see something or touch something before we believe, that is like putting the cart before the horse. If everyone were to have had this philosophy, we would still be using horses as our main means of transport.  We would still have to carrier our messages on pieces of paper delivered by a reliable person. We would still be living in the dark ages!  Thanks to a great number of people who simply believed in what they were doing, perused it with a passion and ignored those who ridiculed them, we are blessed to have some many new and revolutionary ways to travel, communicate, and live more conveniently due to their perseverance and faith.

Believing is Seeing!
The most exciting thing about this is that we are all privy to this same power that can catapult us into being successful and achieving our goals and dreams! There are a lot of hurdles along the way once you take the road of faith. There are a series of steps that you need to take in order for everything to fall in place. Step 1, begin to desire something with you whole heart! Step 2, believe that you can obtain or achieve what you have desired! Step 3, make specific goals and plans with specific dates within which you plan to achieve your desire, be sure to write this down on paper and read it each morning when you wake up. Step 4, stay true to your plan, take action accordingly!  Step 5,  do NOT allow the poison of doubt and discouragement play any role in what you set out to do. Remember it is YOU who has to have the faith for what you want, it is YOU who have to achieve the goal and therefore you will need to guard yourself from comments from others that might discourage you in any way!

Belief has a tremendous power so much so that you can achieve your greatest dreams. Have you heard of Steven Spielberg?  Of course you have, one of the most successful movies directors of our time. He wanted so much to be a director since he was a child having filmed different short films with his little camera.  But how he got into Universal Studio is a classic! First he went on a guided tour as many of us have done to the studio.  He left the group whilst there, and after his stay he left the gate making certain to wave at the guard.  He continued to return through the same entrance each day for three months always waving and greeting the guards and he even located a vacant office that he listed himself under.  He became acquainted with the head of TV production Mr. Sid Sheinburg and showed him his work that he had produced as a college student the Sugar-land Express.  He so impressed Sheinburg that he was then hired at the studio but his true breakthrough came a year later when he was able to convince all that he was the best guy to direct the Movie series Jaws. Talk of perseverance!  For more inspirational stories and for a real life changing reading, I highly recommend that you get the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill

Do you need an important title first…no, do you need a great diploma…not necessarily..  you need great faith and determination, and the guts to see it through!  Go for your dream, don’t let anyone get in your way, befriend those who can be an encouragement to you!
