“All great achievements begin with a vision grander than the appearance at hand. Never use what has been, or what is before you, as an indication of what can be. What is within you is more real, alive, and valuable than anything the outside world shows you.
Most people accept the limits prescribed to them by their forebears or authority figures without questioning or testing them. The world seems real, solid, and formidable because may agree that it is so. Yet it is not. Great world change agents reach beyond the accepted to push the envelope of the possible. For example: the wingspan of a Boeing 747 is wider than the length of the Wright brothers’ entire first flight at Kitty Hawk. If the Wright brothers believed that “if man were mean to fly, he would have wings,” we might still be using only surface transportation. If Boeing believed that air flight was limited to the breadth of its inventors, we would still be flying biplanes. Neither are you bound by what anyone has done before you.
Conditions may influence consciousness, but consciousness creates conditions. Your ideas are strong electromagnets that draw equivalent circumstances. Do not wait until conditions are right for you to do what you would love. Do what you can picture in your mind, and life will imitate your inner art.”
Alan Cohen, in “Relax into Wealth”
