They say that the boundary between insanity and genius is paper thin. What one person thinks insane another believes to be true unadulterated genius.
I don’t know where you are on your journey, or how you came across my website. Maybe you’ve been following your own path for a while, and are just looking for a specific piece of advice. Maybe you have had a glimmer of an idea, a way to make your life better, but don’t know where to start.
From whichever direction you have come here, there will be one thing that joins us in commonality. We are here because we have a dream / a vision / a goal that to some seems so far out of reach, but to us, we know it is something we are meant to achieve.
One other thing will also join us as comrades, and that is the fact that there will be some people either in your inner circle, or just generally around you that do not see your vision, do not believe it is possible, or worse still, do not believe you are capable.
Sure they will superficially go along with you, encouraging you (because that’s the ‘right’ thing to do) but deep down, you don’t get the vibes that they truly believe in you.
Whether you are just about to start your journey, or you are experiencing a slight bump in the road, always keep in mind that it actually doesn’t matter what other people think. Their opinion is none of your business.
What truly matters is that you believe in yourself. That deep down inside you know your own genius, you know you are more than capable and you know that you will achieve your goal. On the slightly more egotistical side, once you have achieved your goal, you can metaphorically sit back and smugly know that you have essentially proven all those doubters wrong. Whether they believed you could or not did not change the fact that you did it. You achieved that success you are reaching for, and now you know you can do anything.
Let’s do some visualisation now. Imagine that you have achieved your end goal, what does it feel like? What is the world around you like? What do you look like? What do you see? What do you hear? Take as long as you need to absorb your surroundings, to absorb the person you have become inside and out. Take your time to feel the achievement, to feel that success through and through, and the pride of knowing that you have overcome all obstacles, you have not let any doubters hinder your success, and now you are on top of your own empire.
Keep this visualisation going for as long as you need so that the images are bright and crystal clear. When you are ready, you can open your eyes but try to hold onto those feelings.
Now, whenever you feel a niggle of doubt creeping in, whenever your resolve wanes, or people voice (either verbally or non verbally) that you are not capable, pull yourself back into this image and feel yourself achieving your dreams.
The more you do this visualisation, the quicker it will take you to feeling ‘that moment’ of success, and the stronger and more ingrained those feelings will become.
One final thing before we part for today, the fact that you are here, on my site, says to me that deep down you are truly committed to achieving your goal. You are here because you strive for greatness, to be all you can be.
Ignore any doubters out there, we are all different, it is just unfortunate that they can’t connect with your genius – because that is what you are. You are working at a much higher level and perhaps one day you will inspire those around you to do the same.
For now though, you do have one person who truly believes in you, who knows you are ore than capable and who know that you will achieve your goal, you will fulfil your vision and create the future you want for yourself – and that person is me
