The most SPEC-tacular truth of life

March 19, 2009

Hi there.

Hope the last recession article got your grey cells movin!

Anyways, to the right I give you an array of beautiful specs/ shades/ sunglasses. You are absolutely free to choose the one that you like. Your decision could be based on either the shape, size, style, fit or color (or your fashion quotient!).

Whatever your choice maybe, the final outcome will be radically different in each case simply because each different color will give you a completely different look & feel of the world around you.

It’s surprising how the similar looking yet distinctly colored spectacles give you a completely different picture of things.
But mind you, this selection is important.


Because this simple yet SPEC-tacular selection is analogous to the most significant truth of our lives. This single, powerful law manifests into our reality at every passing moment or instance.

And what is it?

It is the LAW OF BELIEF. It is the way we think about things and believe in events and instances.

Consider the age-old superstition:
‘Do not cross the road when a black cat passes by!’

People ‘believe’ that it could be a bad omen or something bad could happen.

My belief is: ‘Do not cross the road when ANY cat passes by. Do this only if you are a MOUSE!’

Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on Friday, which many ‘believe’ is a day of bad luck. There’s a famous story of a man who ‘believed’ that something bad was going to happen to him on Friday the 13th. He canceled all appointments for that day and stayed within the confines of his home with the constant fear that something bad is still going to happen to him. Eventually, because of his staunch belief, a wasp bit him that evening and he died of shock.

On the positive side, Lance Armstrong, in spite of being diagnosed with cancer, believed that he would ride his bike again… which he did because he ‘believed’ he would.

One of the worlds oldest man (aged over 100) who had a history of alcohol abuse, faulty eating habits and constant ill health ‘believed’ that he would live a long enjoyable life, and he did.

Looking back, the point is that we all have a choice in life to choose the spectacle we want, i.e. the belief system we want. One belief system may show you a gory picture while another one may show you a colorful canvas. Yet another SPEC-tacular belief system could bring forth a plethora of unanticipated wonderful things. And all this just because you dared to ‘believe’.

Your current color of spectacle (belief system) has got you where you presently are and has done for you exactly what you believed it would do for you.

If you want to experience emotions beneficial to you or want things to be the way you would want them to be, then its time to change your spectacle!
For instance, for a long time I believed that I could never gain weight or have a decent physique in proportion to my height. Because of this powerful negative belief, I ended up always being the thin, lanky guy.

Then I changed my spectacle. I believed that it was possible. I ate, gymmed, ate, gymmed…… and at the end, I gained weight and had a proportionate built. All this because I ‘believed’ I could.

Shockingly, I also believed that I might injure myself while gymming if I went too fast. I ended up cracking my wrist đŸ˜¦ All Because I ‘BELIEVED’.

In a nutshell,
‘Whatever you believe, IS. Whatever you truly believe in (with feeling) becomes your reality!’

So go back to your thought world and select your spectacle wisely.
Remember, the LAW OF BELIEF is SPEC-tacular and is indeed, true!

Two of my favorite quotes which summarize the article:

‘Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you’re right!’

There’s nothing right or wrong, thinking makes it so!

(If this article got you thinking and you ‘believe’ it holds some truth, write back by citing any example to affirm the same. You can also tell-a-friend if you like. Join our Facebook group if you still haven’t by clicking here)
Till then, sayonara!
