Believe that Anything is Possible
(Nephew @ San Francisco Superhero Street Festival, 2010)
“You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.” – Man of Steel
My nephew has no limits, as small as he is. He believes that he could accomplish anything. When he grows up, he wants to be a chef or a mechanic or a marine biologist or a president. In essence, his beliefs have no limits. I believe, no matter how old you are, you could accomplish anything as long as you believe in yourself and start taking actions now.
Each one of us is a superhero. For example – I celebrated one of my friends’ birthday in New York one year. One night, as she and I walked across town back to our hotel at the Waldorf Astoria, she noticed that a man followed us for a few blocks in the desolate streets of a warm July 4th celebration. We immediately entered an Irish pub to direct the man to enter too. As we left the pub, she turned around and said to the man: “Stop following us. You know I could kick your ass right now.” The man left. He was afraid. And my friend would have used her kickboxing skills to demonstrate some superhero action there. At the end, a kind man offered and escorted us safely back to our hotel.
1. Write your own story. You have the power to write your story, to change your past, experience heaven on earth and live in a future you create today. Sit down and write your story. Would you fall in love with the man of your dreams and experience a meaningful, profound relationship, the one you have always wanted? Do you envision a love full of sensibility, intimacy and emotional connection? Would you work at a place where you feel wanted and respected? Would you love to build a company that changes people’s lives? Would you spend time with your grandchildren and just enjoy the company of your love in your arms? Would you explore all the countries in the world and teach compassion to your children? Would you try the best you could to live in the state of happiness everyday? Begin creating your life.
2. You could accomplish anything. As you are creating your life, believe that you could accomplish anything. Anything. You could find a job. You could find a happy, loving man. You could love yourself. You could be happy. And you could change anything.
3. Love your life. Whether you have decided to love yourself every day or give your time to a non-profit organization or raise your children, appreciate life. Do the best you could to do what you love and decide what you want to accomplish. For example, I love traveling and one item on my bucket list is to visit every country in the world. Thus, I consciously choose to explore various nations, people and culture. And I love spending time with my nephew. Thus, I’ll watch Gary Mod episodes with him on YouTube and support his goal of creating a YouTube channel for his love of games. Whatever you love, begin living that reality – now.
Have a beautiful day! – And let your inner beauty shine!
