[The following is an excerpt from the motivational book, Believe. Do. And Follow Through!, that I co-wrote with Isaiah Whittaker]
Sometimes to achieve a dream, we need a break – some sort of miracle, luck, or stroke of genius. Thank goodness it appears when we need it the most. We may be in a really dark spot or just stuck in the same place for a while. Either way, we need something to break the friction that is keeping us from moving forward.
Miracles, luck, and strokes of genius are still alive and well in the world. People of all ages and of all walks of life continuously testify to the validity and reality of those three things. Tomorrow, while you’re out and about during the day, pay attention to what people are saying, and see if you hear how many times people mention something that sounds like a miracle, luck, or stroke of genius. Then acknowledge it, and smile to yourself – you will have just witnessed greatness in the universe.
Right now, think of some time that one of those three things happened in your own life. When did some miraculous thing, bit of luck, or mind-bending answer show up and resolve an issue that you were facing? Did it happen today? Yesterday? A few years ago? When it did occur, did you give thanks for it? I hope so. If not, then it’s not too late. You still can, right now.
Next, think about something that you’re presently going through that makes you think you’ll need another of the three to show up. Is it a big issue? Is it small? Does it involve other people? Whatever the situation is, the right sized answer will show up, just at the right time.
Greatness will still happen in your life, every day.
