It Coulda Been Me

By: Eva Gregory

So everyone is free to pursue their goals since no one is predisposed to achieve success, and others are doomed to fail. But, this law is so often overlooked and feelings of inferiority ensue. This especially occurs when one compares their dreams and accomplishments to those of others. In fact, when this happens, it is the Law of Belief that is most frequently being substituted, the law that says that beliefs create reality. So what happens when you think of Bill Gates, or Donald Trump? Do you look at them and think, “I’ll never see in a lifetime the kind of money that they see in a year?" Or do you smile to yourself and say, “Not yet, but I’m working on it?" When you factor in the law of belief, can you see how much more successful a person will be with an “I think I can" attitude, versus an “I know I can’t" attitude?

How can this awesome law of equality work for you? It will work when you focus on your perception of situations, accomplishments, and actions, and change them if you find yourself not measuring up to someone or something else. No one forces a person into a role without a little help. It is instead the person who allows them to be forced into a role.

This said, look at your perception of the kind of person that makes money, becomes a mega-star, or becomes the next Nobel Prize winner. Do any of these people look like you? If not, why not? Why should they be able to accomplish these things that are seemingly out of reach for you? In reality they are not out of reach for you, but you have to draw that conclusion on your own and determine how to really make that perception shift. Once you have the answer to that question, the next step is to do something about it. Would it be easier to reach your goal if you were better educated, dressed the part, or ran in the same circles as those that are where you’d like to be? Anything and everything is possible, and your job is to do what it takes to change your perception and make you believe it.

Would a reminder be all that is needed for you to remember that there is nothing keeping you from success? Reminding you that your dreams are as important and can be fulfilled just as readily as the next person? Do you need a motivating quote, or a daily affirmation that is strategically placed so that you can’t help but see it often? In The One Minute Millionaire, Michelle was coached to wear a rubber band around her wrist and to give it a sharp snap each time she went back to a place of limitation, believing that she was incapable of succeeding. Eventually she stopped frequenting that place, and when she did fall back into her habit, she recognized it for what it was, and beat a hasty retreat! Everyone needs a rubber band snap from time to time. The goal is for the need to become a rarity.

Your belief about what is possible is the core of the universal laws, and more directly, the key to success and abundance. The only boundaries that can be placed on you are self-inflicted. Shed your limitations and get ready to embrace your destiny and vision: the vision that you hold for yourself, full of passion, promise, happiness and success. If you want it, you can have it, YOU can create it. The universal laws are simply the tools to help you never again utter the wordsArticle Submission, “It coulda been me."
