I’ve tried the Miracle Method of Success and it works almost every time. Obviously there are always exceptions to the rule. That’s life. Here is the Miracle Method. Are you ready?
Tell yourself a success story; a short story where you did something simple in the past and succeeded.
When I was twenty and in college, I realized it was getting late so I picked up the phone and asked Karen for a date. She said, “Sure, I’d enjoy going to the festival with you.”
That’s the short version of a shy young man (me) not daring to ask the prettiest girl on campus to the Winter Carnival Festival. At least she seemed to be the prettiest girl to me. Eventually, after a week of hesitation and procrastination, I realized – do it now or blow it! And so I immediately did it, I picked up the phone and call her dorm and asked if I could speak with her.
I use the above short story to remind myself that I can cause miracles to happen whenever I find myself procrastinating with something that is currently important to me. Then I say, “Do it now,” and then I proceed to take action. The secret to the miracle is: Never leave the scene of a “Do it now” decision without taking action. That is the catalyst that puts the miracle in motion.
Really! What? Were you expecting something far more complicated? Life is easy. It’s man, with his complicated mind that makes life so complicated.
Dare to try the Miracle Method.
- What miracle would you like to perform in your life right now?
- Think of some event in your past where you found yourself succeeding very easily.
- Tell yourself that story right now – keep it simple.
- Carry that winning feeling over to your current challenge.
- Say, “Do it now,” and immediately take action.
Action is the key to all miracles – an inch of action is infinitely more effective than a mile of hesitation.
