Inspiration from My Husband

Setting your goal, focusing on the outcome, being clear about what you want in life can make your dreams come true.


There is another key element that comes into play, an element that each and every one of the 'positive thinking' books has in common: The first step in all of them is to write down your goal.


You probably heard her name, Suze Orman, financial wizard, author of the number one New York Times bestseller, The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, and a frequent guest on Oprah Winfrey Show, tells how she started out. She got a job at Merrill Lynch and was terrified she would not be able to meet her sales quota. The most she had ever made up until then was $400 a month as a waitress. She said, 'I created what I wanted for myself first on paper. Every morning before I went to work, I would write over and over again: I am young, powerful, and successful, producing at least $10,000 a month.' And guess what ?? it came true. And writing down her new truth helped make it materialize. Even after surpassing that target figure, she continued to carry the saying around with her.


My own inspiration came from my husband, who came to me one day with anamused expression and a piece of paper in his hand. He said, 'I found this list from years ago when I was cleaning our room. I don't know how, but everything on this list came true, and I forgot I wrote it.' Among other things, he had studied Mandarin in China (both my husband & I were in Beijing for 3 months in 2002), established his own business (our current business in the Financial Services industry), got married with me :) and become a millionaire (we achieved this together in 2006) – all without being conscious of checking off items on the forgotten list.


My husband's experience made me think. I noticed the same phenomenon happening in my own life. Have you had similar experience too? :)
