When things get tough and it seems like a miracle is necessary, do you sit back and wait for it or do you make it happen on your own? I strongly believe that you should do everything in your power to pull off the miracle. When you face adversity and need a miracle, go after it!
I was recently put in a position where I really felt like just throwing in the towel. With 2 weeks to go until my first show, I was told that it would take at least 8 weeks to rid myself of the fat that is under my arm pits. I felt horrible hearing this. I had all kinds of negative thoughts. I left the gym thinking those negative thoughts. I drove and started to think long and hard about my situation. I had some amazing revelations as I drove. I realized that I had come such a long way. I knew that quitting was not an option. Afterall, I made this show so public for a reason.
It was during that drive home that I came up with the idea of a miracle. I knew that if I focused well enough I could pull off a miracle. Why is it that it takes major pressure for human beings to respond? I honestly have no idea, but I do know that it is true. I started to give myself some positive self-talk. I told myself that if I didn't immediately start doing every single thing my gut was telling me to do to get to a good place, I would be sorry later. If I don't hit the stage knowing that I pulled out all the stops I am going to regret it later.
Now I am in motion, making a miracle happen. I recorded a video yesterday about this very topic (see below). Have a listen and then let me know how you make miracles happen in your own life.
