Today’s Positive Thought

Stage      Movie Camera      Today’s Positive Thought is by TDL.

“Ya know, like I tell myself in da mornin’ over cawffee and munchin’ on a Taylor ham and egg on a hard roll: Get your act together, learn your lines, listen and get behind the character you’re playing, their backstory, ’cause in the long run its you.”

A Reminder

  A reminder.

All the world is a stage and our thoughts and beliefs are writers and directors.  Our life follows the script that is invisibly written by beliefs, concepts and dominant thoughts. 

Rewrite!!  Ok, time to rewrite the script. 

If we are not liking the way the play is unfolding, time to rewrite the script we way we want it to depict the main character, us.

Take a moment today to begin the rewrite and create the proper character you desire; wealthy, healthy, joyous, happy, confident.

Every moment of every day you have the power and ability to rewrite the script to your liking.  Behold your magnificence and the power of the pen, the thought, the belief, the concept to change your life.

Did you see the shiny new star on your dressing room door?

Let the play begin.

As the curtain rises Act 1, Scene 1 begins with you…

Singing To Success

Yes, singing to success is a great way to impregnate your mind (subconscious aspect) for success and prosperity on all levels.  

I want to share with you a technique I developed for creating an easy way to prep for success through song.

First, do you have a favorite song?  One person at lecture shared they put their words to their favorite hymn.  Be it a jazz tune, big band, rap, country music, show tune or whatever genre of music you like it is time to write some new and personal lyrics to that tune. 

What is it you want to focus your mind on?  Is it health, wealth, money (different from wealth), success with a certain project, prosperity, abundance, or love? Pick one and then write down some words (lyrics, present tense) that directly convey the idea and work it into the tune.  Be specific, state, “I am… /I now have or I have…,” be sure to include being thankful for having it (your point of focus) in your life now.  For example the words could be, “My kind of life prosperity is…”  “On a wonderful day like today I am…”  Be sure to affirm the good you desire throughout the song and be accepting of it.  Should you hear the song on the radio sing along with it with your lyrics.  Grab that pen/pencil and a piece of paper, writing it down by hand helps to reinforce  it in your mind.

Start writing down the key words/phrases, i.e. success in…., money in my life now-state an amount you can honestly accept into your life, my life is now filled with an abundance of…, I now have a new job in…, you get the idea. As you create your lyrics don’t force the words, be relaxed and enjoy the process, have fun with it-an important key to this technique.  You can also write a poem or piece of prose and set it to music, it is all up to you how you want to approach implementing this technique into your life.

Success is merely a song away…’cause you got plenty of plenty.

Do let me know how this unique technique works for you.

With a song of success in my heart, for you, I know you are on the way to new beginnings.

Let the singing begin.  Jay

The Stage

   Ah, the stage and screen.  Having had the opportunity to meet  a couple of well-known entertainers from years gone by and discuss how they became successful was an insightful experience.  What I learned was the importance of perseverance and the cultivation of your craft, be it acting or business or another creative endeavor.  Needless to say, a positive attitude was very helpful and part of their success.   

At a conference, I met a well-known character actress who was starring in a sitcom.  When I asked how she became so successful she laughed.  We sat down and began talking. She talked about how in NYC she was a member of a small group of  actors and actresses who first starting out would meet once a week and talk about shows, auditions, etc. The purpose of the meeting was to affirm each as a success in the industry and in high demand.  Some got roles on B’way, a commercial, a cameo or role in a series on television.  All through their meetings never was there any talk of not making it, the focus was on success.  They continued to meet until some moved to Hollywood or became a mainstay on B’way.  Always in contact theycredited how important and supportive their weekly meetings were in getting them jobs and notoriety. What was their secret?  It was coming together as a group and affirming their success, each affirming for everyone their success in the business. Never doubting that they would be successful.

I had the opportunity to know, for a number of years, a successful business woman. During the Depression when she or another family member was in need of a job they all went to a well-known, albeit expensive, restaurant and celebrated that the one who wanted the job had obtained it.  The next day or two sure enough they got the job. 

During my life I have been graced with opportunities to meet and know a variety of well-known figures, they were humble and never bragged.  Each was successful in their own right.  Some came up the ladder, others  from prominent families who made it on their own.  Their desire was not only to be successful but to give to others and see them succeed.  

If you or someone you know is going though a tough time suggest coming together and affirm the goal of success in whatever is needed; somehow and someway it will come to pass.  Always know for yourself your success in life and in the field you have chosen.  Life will always honor you at your own valuation.   

Shakespeare wrote, and I paraphrase, All the world is a stage and all the men and women merely players…  Well, begin acting the part of a successful individual.  You never know who you will meet or the opportunities that will be presented. If you believe in you so will others. 

Ok people, quiet on the set.  Action.

Enter stage right,

Jay
