A reader wrote, “I am not magical.” Yes, you are!
Magic is another name for faith without all the grape juice and crackers. Magic is believing in yourself and acting as though you could do whatever you wish to do, by preparing, by working hard now to prepare for the day when you do get your wish.
It’s about doing whatever part of your wish you can do today…training your mind, your body, your spirit, your hands, your feet to do what they need to do. It’s about changing your self-limiting perspective on life to begin to see the opportunities that do exist for you.
If you have not seen the video of Susan Boyle on Youtube, go there now see magic in action. Susan is 47, frumpy with a grandmother hair do and eyebrows that have never been plucked. She went to the British version of American Idol in what looked like a church dress. The judges were openly contemptuous of her. and the audience smirked at their collective “Aunt Susan” who probably sings in the choir at church with one of those really warbly bird voices.
But when she opened her heart and began to sing, they were amazed. The blonde, barbie-doll-type judge actually had tears in her eyes. Susan has a wonderful voice, and has obviously learned to use it–you can’t sing like that without practice and training. She also knew how to sing the song and what song to sing: “I dreamed a dream.” She may have even planned the surprise by not dressing in an eveing gown or stage dress. As she walked off the stage, excited by the “Biggest Yes in the History of the Show”, she blew a kiss to the audience who were standing and cheering for her.
That is magic. That is believing in yourself. That is knowing who you are. And that is making your your wish come true.
