Speed Limits on the Cosmic Highway
How long it takes you to fulfill your dreams is directly related to your beliefs. If you made a million dollars in the next year, would you consider that a good year?
What do you think a multi millionaire would think if he only made a million dollars in the coming year? He’d most likely think the year was a huge failure, wouldn’t he?
The key difference between you and the millionaire is the beliefs you hold in your abilities.
What are the beliefs you hold about your ability to live your passions?
Here are some we hear:
• I can’t make money from the things I’m passionate about
• I don’t have the skills to be really successful
• I don’t know enough
• I’m too old. It’s too late for me
No matter who you are, no matter what your situation, no matter what your handicaps, thinking that these things prevent you from living your passions are all simply false ideas, false concepts, and false beliefs. These are thoughts you hold that are simply not true. They are out of sync with reality.
When you feel truly passionate about something, you will always have the ability to create it in your life.
Is it true you can’t make money from living your passions? Would you ever believe that someone could make money from a passion for sitting around and chatting with people? Oprah Winfrey seems to have done pretty well with that one. What about a passion for baking cookies? Mrs. Fields seems to have managed that one. How about a passion for watching movies? Roger Ebert figured that one out.
What is stopping you from living your passions?
You are powerful beyond your imagination. You have created your life, and the good news is, if you don’t like it you can change it. You’re too old? Do you know that most millionaires are made after the age of fifty-five? While he cooked chicken for years, it wasn’t until Colonel Sanders was sixty-two that he started Kentucky Fried Chicken.
No matter what limiting belief you hold, there is evidence in the world to the contrary. Even if there is no one who has ever done what you are passionate about doing, there is abundant evidence of people who have been successfully doing what others thought was impossible.
Your life is created first in your mind then in the world.
As long as you believe you can’t, you won’t be able to. As long as you believe it’s not possible, it won’t be possible for you. As long as you believe it’s too hard, it will be too hard for you. So does that mean the opposite is also true, that as long as you believe you can, you’ll be able to? Yes, and it’s not so simple, because our beliefs run deep. You can say, “I can do it,” and still not believe you can, deep inside. This is why affirmations often don’t produce the results we’d like them to.
Keep looking for evidence until you can feel it deep inside and find your purpose in life. “Of course I can do it. Look at all the other people who have done it, look at all the evidence there is that this is possible.” This is your first and most important task in living your passions.
Overcome your fears and live your passions with trust.
As you investigate the thoughts that make you feel afraid, that make you feel unworthy, that make you feel unlovable, you will discover something new growing in you: trust.
Your speed on the cosmic highway is directly related to your ability to trust in the benevolence of the universe.
Change your mind about what you choose to experience in your life.
What feels better, to believe that you are alone in the world, that you have to struggle and strain to get ahead, or to believe you are surrounded by a benevolent universe that is constantly giving you gifts? What feels better, to believe life is hard and difficult and disappointing, or to believe that life is an adventure, an opportunity to explore your own true nature?
When you begin to look for evidence that life is ultimately kind, you will start to find that evidence. When you begin to look for reasons to believe that every experience is a blessing, you will start to find those reasons.
As you begin to embrace the idea that life is here for your joy, that every moment is a gift, showing you the path to fulfillment, you will discover magic happening in your life.
Discover your true calling, and begin living the life you were destined for.
