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.
Thank you! You often write very interesting articles. You improved my mood.
Thank you! It’s good to know that someone is reading.
I am really enjoying reading your well written articles. It looks like you spend a lot of effort and time on your blog. I have bookmarked it and I am looking forward to reading new articles. Keep up the good work!
Thanks. Keep the magic coming.
Spambots are better than no visitors at all. Thanks.
That’s that I do, tell stories that make people laugh. They don’t even notice the transformation.
Thanks. I edited the pix a bit, but the link to the designer is at the bottom of the page.
Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it’s nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
You are welcome.
I know this is really boring and you are skipping to the next comment, but I just wanted to throw you a big thanks – you cleared up some things for me!
I appreciate a amazing website and this one is good.
Is this a Joomla? Is it easy to customize?
This is just a wordpress blog. I have not done much to customize it. Check at the bottom of the page for the designer’s name. He has some sweet designs.
It’s not Joomla, but WordPress–much much flatter learning curve.
No, it’s wordpress. It’s simpler than Joomla, but probably has fewer features.
Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
You are welcome!
How do they perform this magic,do they use voodoo ?
That’s one way, but Susan Boyles did it by continuing to work on her skills while she did the other things her life demanded. And then, when she had the chance, she took it and blew their socks off. That takes purpose, will, willingness to strive, belief in oneself, and not to put it too fine-pointedly–BALLS. Chicken blood might not help that much without all the other.
Read much? Positive thinking and working while you are waiting will do more than voodoo for most folks. I’m sure you can use voodoo to get you where you want to go, and not just for knocking your competitors out, but then I’m not a practitioner, so I have no valid opinion.
