Success is never an accident. It is carefully and meticulously planned.
Many people approach the world with a huge misconception. That misconception is that they have no control over their destiny or path and that if the world throws them an obstacle or challenge, they will be left defeated with no way to move forward. These people also religiously stick by the societal norms that are imposed on everyone since birth i.e. getting a job, sleeping 8 hours every night, only eating 'breakfast' foods for breakfast ~ stupid stuff like this!
What I have learnt is that your mindset is absolutely EVERYTHING.
Although it might sound crazy, I so blindly believe that if you put forward a desire or want to the universe, the universe will respond. Maybe not in the way that you expected or exactly wanted, but if your desire is strong enough and is for the right reasons, things will fall into place. Your desire must be constant, be truthful, be possessing your every thought and determining your every action. You must be prepared to sacrifice and surrender to your desire and burn all other avenues so you have no choice but to carry out what is in your mind.
The story of Edwin C. Barnes is one that perfectly encapsulates what is really means to have a passion and desire so great that you have no choice but to act immediately. Barnes had one goal and desire in his mind - to become a business associate of the great inventor, Thomas Edison. Despite having no money and absolutely no connection with Edison, he decided to find his way to Edison's office anyway - and when he did he stood in front of Edison and told him prophetically that he had come to go into business along side him. Barnes' desire was not a mere hope or wish, it was rather a desire that transcended all dimensions and so would ensure him success.
Barnes worked under Edison for two years, proving his worth and significance. When his opportunity to impress Edison arose, he ceased it with the greatest determination and so finally implemented his desire- achieving a business partnership with the great inventor.
Barnes' success began with himself. It began with his own mindset. From the minute he met Edison, Barnes viewed himself as a business partner of the inventor, not merely an admin/office worker underneath him. This is a powerful illustration of what a definite desire and goal can do. Visualising and believing that this desire is true will ensure you success, as every step and action you take will be furthering yourself towards your achievement of this desire.
Stop being bounded by the impossible or the constraints of society - Change your mindset and start really visualising the future that you want. If you visual your desires they will have a way of establishing themselves in the physical world. Trust me, it will do you wonders.
