Of course you have dreams. You probably visualize or daydream about them, maybe even speak them into being with affirmations. But how intensely are you imprinting them into your subconscious mind?
Because once something is strongly impressed into your subconscious mind, your mind works tirelessly to manifest it on the physical plane.
How powerful is this? Allow me to share a personal experience with you…
One night I was watching television and a commercial came on for the soon to be launched Dodge Viper. I was gopsmacked. Just standing still on the screen, the car looked like it was screaming toward you at 200 miles per hour. It was the most beautiful automobile I had ever seen, and I resolved to own one as soon as possible.
Soon after, I was working on my prosperity manifestation map (a/k/a dream board), and of course I found a hot Viper pic in a car magazine, and put it on my board.
About a month later, I was contacted by a startup company that wanted to bring me in as a consultant, to help them design their marketing materials and training program. As we were negotiating my fees, I added at the end, “And when your sales hit $2 million a month, you’re going to deliver me a new Dodge Viper down to Miami.”
The CFO threw up all over the idea...
He said there were too many issues with taxes, transferring the title, liability, etc. I told him I couldn’t be bothered with his personal problems; when they hit $2 million in a month, have the car delivered. The CEO wanted to hire me, so he overruled the CFO and we wrote it into the contract.
Six or seven months later, Matt the CEO called me. He told me they had hit $1.7 million the previous month, and they were so far ahead of projections and he was so happy, he wanted to send me the car early. He was friends with the owner of the biggest exotic car dealership in the country, and they had a customized, only one of its kind Viper that was built for a casino owner in Vegas. But now he was getting divorced and needed to raise cash.
Matt said here was only one problem…
He knew I wanted a red model like the original commercial, but this car was black. However this black model had so many custom upgrades, I would be crazy not to take it. I asked for some time to think about it.
I jumped on my bike and went riding around South Beach to reflect on my decision. As I cruised down Ocean Drive, I came up to Lario’s, and there were two Vipers parked at the valet stand in front. One red, one black. I rode back and forth, and finally got off the bike and just stared. I decided I had to get a black one.
What’s the moral of this story?
The photo I had put on my dream board was a black one. And that’s the power of the subconscious mind.
So as 2018 starts winding to a close, it would be a great idea if you created your own dream board. Or if you have one, this is a great time to update it.
But be very mindful what you place on it. Because that’s what you’re going to manifest!
