Success The Cartoon Character Way?

If you could choose a cartoon character from your childhood days of watching them on TV or reading them, who would you want to be?

I know it sounds silly but here's why...

When I was a young boy, I loved to watch Looney Tunes, He-Man, Thundercats, Garfield, HeathCliff, GI Joe, yes and even the Smurfs! Okay, okay and even the Care Bears.

I would always imagine that I was either "unstoppabble" like Bugs Bunny or a BIG, Strong, Hero like He-Man.

You remember imagining you were "someone" like that don't you?

Well, when adults would ask me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I would say, "I wanna' be a Doctor!"

Of course I was lying because I just wanted them to feel good so I told them what they wanted to hear.

After that I would go back to imagining I was Bugs or He-Man or who ever my hero was at that time again. I would get so wound up in the He-Man character that I would literally take my Grandpas machete and pretend it was a sword.

Then I would go around his farm and start swashing at the bushes and tall grass which was kind of helpful. But, sooner or later I found my way to his Papaya trees and start battling them as if they were evil-doers.

Well if you don't know, Papaya trees the trunk is as thick as the diameter of a CD BUT as easy to cut as a watermelon.

By the time I was done, almost all the trees were down and when my Grandpa got back from whatever he was doing, WOW was he angry! Can you blame him!?

Anyway, that freedom to imagine myself as a hero or someone that couldn't be stopped is what would both save my life one day and lead me to coaching individuals and businesses.

Now the only papaya trees I chop down are the obstacles that I teach my clients how to conquer in their lives and businesses.

Everything starts in your imagination. Can you think of a time when your imagination led you to doing something that was extraordinary? What was it? How did it happen?

Visualizing what you want to be or what you want to have, helps you to crystallize the idea and turn it into reality. Having a story behind it helps it to stay with you forever and you WILL create it in your life.

I want you to visualize what you want out of your life. Visualize someone who inspires you.

Then tell yourself the story of the day you read this article, visualized what you wanted and created it in your life.
