“Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and
enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.”
~ Paul Meyer
What this quote means to entrepreneurs:
This is a great recipe for success! Let me break it down for you:
You have to be able to “see” something before you can make it manifest. Before the chair you are sitting on came into our three-dimensional reality, it was visualized in someone’s mind and possibly also designed out on paper. Therefore, vividly imagining that which you desire — what it looks like, what it feels like, what it smells like, what it tastes like, what it sounds like — as if it were already present is the first step toward making it happen.
Action Step: How can you help yourself vividly imagine something? Try these ideas:
- Create a vision board from pictures in magazines
- Draw it with colored pens, pencils and/or crayons
- Create a three-dimensional representation out of clay, wood or found objects
Get creative and spark your imagination!
You have to want what you want truly, strongly and emphatically … or you’ll give up before you get it. A half-hearted desire will either never materialize … or will be disappointing if it does.
Action Step: How strong is your desire? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being I could leave it or leave it and 10 being I feel like I’ll explode if it doesn’t come to pass soon.
Wayne Dyer often says, “You’ll see it when you believe it.” Without belief, you’ll miss it even it is there! Your reticular activating system will see that that, for sure. When your belief in something, your faith in it, is strong, it magnetizes it to you.
Action Step: Where are you on the belief scale? Are you a 1? I believe in this as much as I believe pigs can fly. Or are you a 10? I believe in this as much as I believe I have eyes to read this sentence.
Enthusiastically Act Upon
“God helps those who help themselves.” You must take action for things to happen for you. You can’t sit and wish and affirm and expect what you desire to be handed to you on a silver platter. Singers must rehearse over and over to become the best they can be. Athletes must train to be the best they can be. You must take actions that move you toward your goals, or those goals are merely wishes.
Action Step: What is one step you can take today that will move you toward what you want? It doesn’t have to be a big enormous step, just something that gets you moving in the right direction. Do you want a new client? What can you do to get in front of potential clients? Research local networking groups? Take advantage of benefits that come with one of your association memberships? Choose something and start taking action now!
