Most of us have had someone in our lives tell us to be more realistic or see things as they are. Many times before winning first place in the Amateur National Championships in billiards I have been told that I should get a job and why would I try for something so difficult. At the time I didn't know it but I was making choices of a committed champion. I Chose to drive cross-country in a broken car with very little money believing that the championship money was waiting for me. My circumstances were less than ideal but I was committed to my imagination of how my life was coming closer and closer to me. long after winning I learned that by feeling and being fully committed to my belief I left a path open for the universe to bring me what I was already grateful for.
I have a couple of degrees but learning through science that your reality is shaped by your thoughts, feelings and beliefs about your life no matter what your current circumstances gives you the power to change any situation.
Have faith that if you feel in your heart what you see in your mind it will inevitably become so.
