The catapult of motivation

“Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”- Napoleon Hill. Do you believe in this simple line ? This statement is not just a string of words joined by conjunctions and prepositions but a law just like gravity. Many great authors since time immemorial have written and based their lives on this.  
Our mind is such a beautiful tool given to us by nature which distinguishes us from other species existing on the planet. The mind not only has powers to think, analyze with problem solving capabilities but also has the power to attract in your life what you want/do not want the most. A lot of authors have named it vibrations, various call it frequency, others call it cause and effect and many others have called it metaphysics. To put it in simple terms - once it is created in thought, it shall exist in reality too. Matter is created in two planes.
One in thought and other in reality. Everything that exists today in reality was once only imagination. When you are very careful about a particular thing in life and think constantly “I will not lose it”- you are sure to lose it. This is because your emotion is insecurity. The law thrives on imagination and emotion both. When we speak about telepathy/serendipity/coincidence: these are incidents that happen not due to sheer luck but due to the metaphysical laws.
Our imagination and creativity decrease as we are guided by our conscious mind totally. We are made to understand that what the eyes can see, ears can hear, the tongue can taste, the nose can smell and skin can sense is only true. But don’t you think what we actually feel inside is a better guide ? What we feel and intuit is often better than what the world tells us. When people say- Listen to your heart, the only sound it makes is Lub Dub. What they mean is to sense what our subconscious mind tells us.  
It is difficult to believe in this law if you are totally guided by facts and judgements. But for magic to happen, you have to believe in it. Most people complain that life is not a fairy tale because they believe in all practicalities and only what they can see. But the thing is, when you wish for something and believe that you have already had it, you are bound to get it.
The core of your personality is a very strong unknown magnet- it has the power to attract by what it feels. Feeling is at the core of its foundation- there may be times that people are broke but they are still hopeful and there are times when people are so hopeless even if they have all the riches. Which situation would you prefer ? I would not prefer either of the two. The balance between reality and wishes is where hard work begins. The threshold should be always understood well because that is where change begins.
There are situations in life which have the ability to change the course of our lives. People say that XYZ person committed a suicide because he was upset for over two years now. Or that someone got successful. Do you think situations good or bad drastically occur overnight? The energy that these huge situations consume have been converted from potential energy into kinetic energy not just in a fraction of seconds- it’s a build up of days/months/years.  But when is that the threshold? Maybe no one has the answer.
So, believe in yourself, your dreams and start seeing change in all aspects of your life. You might not just see it today, tomorrow or day after. But just one day you will realize you got too far from where you started. Keep paddling, keep rowing, keep running, keep swimming!
