What exactly is the essential ingredient necessary for success?
There are certainly a lot of people with opinions and postulates out there, and I certainly have my own ideas, but I’m not sure I could narrow it down to just one.
I’m watching game #1 of the World Series tonight, and in case you haven’t seen or heard, the Red Sox are absolutely massacre-ing (spelling?) the Rockies. Sure, I live in Colorado now, but shhhhh…don’t tell anyone here I’m a Red Sox fan. It might cause a riot.
The Sox are totally dominating this game. I don’t think there’s a Red Sox fan alive who doubts the team’s ability to win the World Series — especially after they broke the “curse of the Bambino” in 2004 and annihalated the Yankees (go Sox!) A lunar eclipse certainly enhanced the “spooky” effect.
Personally, I kind of wonder if that movie “Fever Pitch” had anything to do with it.
Look, you talk about a so-called “curse” enough, and folks start to believe it. But you start putting powerful images of a die-hard Sox fan’s dream come true, and you’re planting a mighty powerful seed of thought.
We all know the concept of Be-Do-Have…we must first BE what we choose to become, then we will naturally be inspired to DO what that kind of person would do, which will therefore lead to our ability to HAVE what we desire.
The Red Sox had to BE a winning team long before they could beat the Yankees.
I heard one of the announcers say tonight that during the 2004 playoffs, the Red Sox players were actually wishing the Yankees good luck in the World Series. And then they came back and kicked their ass something like 4 games in a row (I’m not a baseball statistician).
That could be construed as something we “in the know” call “detachment.”
It will be interesting to see how they do against the Rockies. Stay tuned….
QoD: Are you envisioning the thing you most wish for, as though it’s already accomplished? Are you successfully doing this without attachment? What kind of expectations do you have about the results, and are you able to see yourself as “ok” if your expectations aren’t met?
Go for it!
