On those occasions when a shot did not physically go in I changed the story and charged ahead. By changing my story I won for my self and my team. I was filled up with glowing warmth and strength. I had the experience of winning by making a new story, shooting, driving, passing, hooking, fading jump shots. I could hear the crowd and feel the handclaps of my teammates on my shoulders. It was so cool. I felt it and it was good, it was fun!
I guess that most of us have lived some fantasies as sports heros, actresses, keynote speakers, warriors, nurses, doctors etc. We did it and it was called play. Lets pretend. It seems that we "grow up" and stop acting out or practicing our fantasies. Suddenly life seems to change. Some people feel we lose this skill of imagining or visualizing and practising in such incredible detail that it seems and feels real. I don't really think so.
Do you know what? I don't know about you, but I quit practicing. There were "serious things that had to be done" and time was of the essence. The problem was I launched out without a dream and just took a good job without a vision of my possible life story.
But here is the thing. Are you really happy about your present life story? What if you decided to change your existing story that you are not happy about? What if you decided to change it to a new happy success story? What would it look like? Feel like? Can you hear the sounds of doing it intensely, becoming great at it, so great it is real? Sound, texture, smell, feel and movement. Can you imagine what you must do,whom you must speak with, what you must learn and practice to get there? Get some life coaching to help you to visualize and create a new life story.
Think new life story and get into it! Just like this.
Wow! I am standing at the annual Pulitzer Prize Award meeting about to give my acceptance and thank you speech for the Pulitzer Prize for the book I wrote which has sold 5,500,000 copies and is making a difference in peoples' lives!
The place is packed with people all dressed up for the occasion. I can hear the low buzz of people, feel the crackling of the energy. And then I hear the voice of the master of ceremonies, Oprah, over the sound system. " Ladies and gentlemen (pause and I can feel my heart beat faster and my mouth is dry!), it gives me great pleasure to announce the winner of this years Pulitzer (Pause - stillness and ) Robert Tewsley, for his best selling book - "Getting the World you Want Before They Take it Away".
