I am delighted to share this guest post with you from my friend and collegeue, Steve Olsher, a true Destiny Discoverer who is sharing his message and method with others. Read on to see how to receive his new book!
What if someone you love more than anyone else in the world is dying of a rare disease and only has six months to live? And, what if you Google this disease and learn of a miracle antidote owned by a rain forest shaman (who’s a capitalist) that costs $1 million and you only have $1,000 to your name?
How hard would you bust your butt to make that $1 million? How quickly could you turn the impossible into the definite? Like a finely tuned, high-performance sports car, you operate with multiple gears. Seldom, however, are you faced with crises or emergencies that require you to maximize your potential and fully leverage your abilities which, in turn, creates dynamic results.
Have you ever heard a story about a terrified mother lifting an impossibly heavy object to free her child from harm’s way? Or a father who fights off a wild animal with his bare hands to protect his family? While, hopefully, you’ll never be faced with one of these situations, the fact remains that your life is governed by the self-imposed limitations you’ve established. Such limitations run the gamut from repeating self-defeating phrases such as “I could never do that” to maintaining destructive ways of being, such as staying at a job you loathe because you’ve convinced yourself that you have no other options.
Ultimately, the further you can stretch these limitations, the more fulfilled you’ll be.
As William James observed, most people use a very small portion of their possible consciousness and of their body’s resources in general. You hold the power to kick it into overdrive. However, you also hold the power to continue coasting. As evidenced by the aforementioned examples, if one has the power to create extraordinary results when pushed to the brink, is it then possible for this to be a repeatable action that can be called upon as needed? Couldn’t extraordinary performance become the go-to way of being as opposed to the other way around?
Close your eyes and establish a clear vision of the person you love more than anyone else. Now, remember they have just six months to live and you can be their hero by securing the funds necessary to purchase the antidote. In my presentations and Workshops I ask attendees to consider this scenario and raise their hands if they believe they could deliver the $1 million by hook or by crook, doing whatever it took, within six months to save this person’s life. Consistently, more than 90% will indicate that, yes, they could make this happen.
Could you? If so, and you’re willing to operate at maximum speed to save someone you love, what speed are you willing to travel to save yourself?
