We must take everything God gives us talents, abilities, provisions and hold them with an open hand. For us, this was the only way we were able to trust God when we lost our reality-TV show years ago. We had learned to die to our dreams and trust God with the results.
July 18, by Jack Canfield 21 Comments As you probably know, I have achieved an enormous amount of success in my life, and I owe it all to two things: The first is that I have learned how to access my intuition and tune into my inner guidance, which comes from both my own subconscious mind and the Higher Power that created this Universe and wants us to thrive.
The second is that I have learned to take immediate action on my inner guidance—the quicker, the better! When Mark Victor Hansen and I needed a title for the book of inspirational and motivational stories that we had Achieving your dream, I decided to meditate an hour a day in search of the perfect title.
My approach was simple: I asked God to give me a title — and then I sat in silence waiting for it. Nothing came to me the first two days… But on the third day, a green chalkboard suddenly emerged in my mind.
They almost always seem to accompany an idea that is deeply aligned with what is for my highest good. I immediately got up from meditation and told my wife, who also got goosebumps. Then I called Mark, who got goosebumps, and our agent, who got goosebumps as well.
By the end of the day the full title had emerged—Chicken Soup for the Soul: And the rest, as you know, is history. Other times, we have to consciously ask for them — and then create the quiet space within ourselves to receive them.
But however and whenever it comes, it should be acted on as soon as possible. I have come to believe that when inspiration strikes, it comes in a certain window of time that is ideally suited for the action to begin at that moment.
So once we had our divinely inspired title, Mark, our agent, and I headed off to New York City to sell our book.
Unfortunately, during the three days, we were in New York City, no one at the fifteen publishing houses we visited was as excited about our book as we were.
Everyone told us that nobody bought collections of short stories and that our title was stupid. Our agent became so discouraged that he gave us the book back and said he could not sell it.
Action must be consistent and persistent We found ourselves having to choose between believing in our dream and trusting our inner guidance or believing the naysayers in the publishing industry and trusting their judgments. One of the secrets of success that I have learned over the years is to never give up on the dreams that come from deep in your heart.
And by this time, our dream had become more of a divine obsession. So we took more action. Over the next five months, we were rejected by publishers.
A month later they decided to publish it. The Rule of Five When the book finally came out in Julyit was not an overnight success.Dream Central is your dream information. Learn about the sleeping process, includes a dream dictionary and a details on dreaming interpretation!
