Leap... And The Net Will Appear

Written by Sibyl McLendon

In 1994, my life hit rock bottom. My husband was addicted to crack cocaine, my 17 year-old son had just gotten his 15 year-old girlfriend pregnant, we were about to get evicted from our home, I contracted a life-threatening illness with no health insurance and my Mother died very suddenly, and as her only child,repparttar responsibility of this fell solely on me. My emotional hole was so deep, I could not even imaginerepparttar 123996 light atrepparttar 123997 end ofrepparttar 123998 tunnel, let alone see it.

Two years later, my husband was free of addiction, I was running a business that was quite successful, I was healthy and had a beautiful Grandson that I loved deeply. Today, my husband is still drug free, my business has evolved torepparttar 123999 point that we can work at home, my Grandson is still (and always will be)repparttar 124000 light of my life, and I can honestly say that life is good.

It was a difficult path back intorepparttar 124001 light. Certainly, my life is far from trouble free now. But I learned one invaluable lesson duringrepparttar 124002 dark time that keeps me from falling back intorepparttar 124003 abyss, no matter whatrepparttar 124004 Universe throws at me today: faith. And really, faith in “what” is notrepparttar 124005 issue. It is simply faith in something. It could be faith inrepparttar 124006 Creator, angels,repparttar 124007 Universe, yourself, electricity, or even a rock. It really doesn’t matter. It isrepparttar 124008 act of having faith that makesrepparttar 124009 difference. Someone once told me that even an atheist has faith that when he flipsrepparttar 124010 wall switch,repparttar 124011 light will come on.

Alongrepparttar 124012 way, I saw a Zen saying, “Leap… andrepparttar 124013 net will appear.” It became my battle cry, my philosophy of life. Take a chance, give something a try, at least you are doing something. It is one step towards taking control of your life. Find a goal, even a little one, and then do one thing towards reaching it. It may be scary, but a little fear getsrepparttar 124014 adrenaline pumping. The rewards can be immense. Your self-esteem will benefit greatly. If you succeed, even in a small way, you can say, “Look what I did!” Believe me, it feels great.

Secret Plan to Achieve Your Desires Copyright© Lisa van den Berg

Do you wantrepparttar secret to attaining all you desire? Keep your thoughts targeted on what you wish to attain and repparttar 123995 means for their attainment will flow to you.

Althoughrepparttar 123996 plan I will present to you is easy enough to formulate, it is only by means of Absolute Faith that it can be properly implemented. Once you have decided what it is that you want from your Life, write it out in complete detail. You should write down everything about what you want to achieve, your plan for achieving it and what you will give in return for its fulfillment. I follow this plan and let me tell you that it works like nothing else I've ever tried. Follow it and you'll see.

Keep thoughts of attainment in your mind. Carry that piece of card on which you've written your Statement of Desire with you wherever you go. When James J Hill was formulatingrepparttar 123997 idea that he wanted to develop a Transcontinental Railway System that stretched fromrepparttar 123998 one coast of America torepparttar 123999 other, he had no money and no friends of influence that he could turn to, to help him. What he did have, however, was Absolute Faith. He drew in his proposed path forrepparttar 124000 railway system on a map of repparttar 124001 US and slept with it under his pillow, he carried it with him wherever he went and referred to it allrepparttar 124002 time. He submitted it to his subconscious until his dream came true. What he needed forrepparttar 124003 fulfillment of his desire came to him because of his Absolute Faith that it would.

Sit down and write out your Statement of Desire. Write out allrepparttar 124004 things you want to accomplish, a plan for making them happen and what you will give in return for them coming to be (time, hard work etc).

Repeat your statement continually throughoutrepparttar 124005 day. Imprint it on your mind by visualizingrepparttar 124006 outcome of your desire, as if it was already real. Remember that nothing physical comes about without an idea to start it off. Before you build a buildingrepparttar 124007 architect first draws a picture of howrepparttar 124008 building will look fromrepparttar 124009 picture he has in his mind. From his drawingrepparttar 124010 builder can determine what materials are needed to buildrepparttar 124011 building and then set to work on makingrepparttar 124012 picture inrepparttar 124013 developers head, a reality.
