Rule #1 - The Power of Thought = Common Sense

I was, of course, thinking the other day, about how it is my ideas are developed, nurtured, and finally realized. I have to say that I have never really been one to mull things over for long periods of time before acting. I am a split-second decision maker when it comes to something I really want and know. Much like when I quit my full-time job 3 years ago. I went to work that morning, sat down at my desk and decided "Yep. This is the day I give notice. Can't do this anymore."

So, what's my secret? It's my power of thought. YOU have this too you know: If you "think" about it nothing is created until it is a thought first. In my work as a photographic/development consultant I am always trying to convey my message to those that I help. I often tell them that the secret of my success is I see it AND believe it.

If you can see it happening in your thoughts - can it really happen? My answer is yes. Without a doubt. Speaking of doubt... that's usually when I start to flounder (create a dry spell and a slow-down within my work-life).

I realize that this may sound simplistic, perhaps even a bit "new age" but, I have always thought of it really as "common sense". It is also my Rule #1 when I said good-bye to "the man", ditched that day-job, and started working for myself.

I know that everyone has their own story of "Common Sense" or focused drive. Take the time to remember it and believe. You may be surprised at how able you are to really do what you want.

I love this post. Have you read the book Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell? This book is on our split second decision making and how mulling over things for hours or days does us no good. Our minds process our thoughts and make decisions far faster than we can even comprehend. I highly reccomend this book!
I also am a strong believer in a positive attitude and a big smile!

Hello, I came here from Flickrs, I was looking how to do tbq. Your crafts are really beautiful! I hope some day I could at least one tbq. I am thinking just now that I could. Could I?
Sorry for my english, it is not my mother tongue.
Hugs and congratulations for all these beautiful things.
