Our biological programming makes us want to fit in, to be part of a herd, team or tribe. This is necessary if we intend to raise a family or put together a group for a common purpose. It also has plenty of dangers.
One of those dangers is the loss of freedom to independently create, to do things on our own, with or without the approval of others.
If you look at the lives of successful people, over and over again you’ll find they did much of their training, their studying and their practicing while no one else was around. These people didn’t need other people to applaud their every move, word and gesture.
Yes, successful people may also be good at working with others – but that isn’t the only way they work. Late at night or early in the morning, when no one else is watching, creators get things done. They practice and train. They learn new things. They come up with ideas. They make plans. They visualize and imagine. They mentally pretend. And they talk to themselves.
When you’re away from other human beings, and you’re comfortable being with the invisible energies that are part of the creative process, that’s when you are on the road to greatness.
Steven Pressfield, author of The Legend of Baggar Vance, believes that writers and other creators are never “alone.” They’re interacting with the characters they’re writing about. They’re with the energy of their project. They are with “muses” or angels who guide their every idea, word and action.
Very interesting idea, isn’t it?
When I’m getting mentally ready for a seminar, I like to go for a walk – backwards – and as I’m moving, ideas present themselves to me. Are these ideas mine? Or was I given them by some other Source?
When I teach Theatre of the Mind, I’m often astounded at the positive things people tell me. Oftentimes, the person I’m working with is moved to tears of happiness and joy. Other times the person tells me that the world she entered into was “real.” Her world went from “mentally pretend” to “oh my God, I just know this goal I have is going to happen. It’s already taken place in another dimension.”
Theatre of the Mind gives you the feeling of deja vu – of having already been there before. It gives you the sense of being in the world but not of it.
As you travel along your way, you’ll meet plenty of people who’ll want to derail you or stop you. But with Theatre of the Mind, you’ll pass them by and create your life the way you desire. No one and no thing will distract you when your mind is clear and focused on a single objective.
Make sure you latch onto a copy of Theatre of the Mind today so you’re off to the races, with or without others right NOW.
