Everything that you do today will have an effect on your life in the future, good or bad you have control of the outcome.
Sometimes, we cannot see the forest for the trees and the only magic that is happening in our lives is the dust that resembles that of the fairies but is only the smoke that is coming out of our ears from thinking about the things that are happening in our lives. I have been guilty of this many times and I am sure most of you have too.
There is a way to control this and actually turn it around to make the smoke from the wheels turning in our heads become the magic that we need to make the situations in our life what we want them to be. In essence, you become a magician.
At some point in your life, probably as a child, you were intrigued with magic and how to perform the tricks you saw magicians performing. You set out to find out how it was done. When you found out how to do it, you were amazed at how simple it was and in reality there was no magic. You simply had to practice the steps over and over until they could be performed without failure. In the end you were a success and everyone was amazed at your ability to perform “magic”.
Everything that you desire in life carries the same principle as this simple childhood dream to become a magician. It requires looking for the correct way to make it happen, learning the steps, and practicing them until you become a master magician.
For example, if you want to own your own company (the trick) and become a successful business person (the Magician), the steps are the same as if you were learning to perform the trick.
Identify what it is that you want (the trick)
Find the REAL reason why you want it (become a Magician)
Identify the obstacles to overcome (difficult steps that will require practice)
Identify and acquire the skills required to obtain it (practice)
Who are the people that you need to involve (other magicians, practice audience)
Develop the plan (steps to perform the trick)
Completion date (date to perform the trick in a live audience)
Once you begin to successfully perform the trick then you are considered a Magician (a successful business person). The bigger and better tricks you learn to perform, the more successful you will be.
There is one major factor that holds people back from becoming the master magician, fear. Don’t allow fear to keep you from the magic that you can make in your life. Fear is an illusion just like any feat of magic. You overcome it by taking the first step and then the second. Don’t look at the end result today but the results that you can generate from the step you are taking today.
