My Goal Continued...
After a personal failure at the Helsinki Olympics in 1952 a young Roger Bannister considered quitting running all together. After two months of thinking about it, he decided that instead of quitting in defeat, he was going to come back and literally make history. He was going to run a mile in less than four minutes.
So many athletes had tried and failed to do this that many believed it was physically impossible. Some doctors said that if a human ran a sub four mile that the runner's heart would explode and come right out of the body. Roger ignored all the naysayers and negativity. He intensified his physical training and visualized his desire in order to create a sense of certainty in his mind and body.
On a windy day in May of 1954, Roger lined up at a starting line. The gun went off and he darted forward. One lap passed, and then another and another. A short time into the fourth lap, he surged ahead and took the lead position. After crossing the finish line and breaking the tape, exhausted and totally spent, he waited. It seemed like it was taking the announcer forever. Finally the loud speaker blared, "Ladies and gentlemen, the time was three..." The roar of the crowd drowned out the rest of the announcement. He'd made history! His final time was 3 min 59.4 seconds!
Roger's race time was like the shot that was heard around world. In the next two months*, 26** different individuals ran sub four minute miles. He had broken through the belief barrier and shown that there was no wall there. If you'd like to watch the actual race click here.
In 2003 I was driving down the highway thinking about the Law of Attraction. Suddenly the thought hit me that I'd been way more successful manifesting my desires than I ever had been trying to achieve my goals the traditional way. As I thought about this, I decided it was time to step up my game and manifest a truly life changing result. I decided to go after winning the California lottery. At the time I thought manifesting results were caused by intense emotion. Before each lottery game I worked myself into an emotional frenzy. When I found out I'd lost, emotionally I came crashing down. I kept this up for three months straight. The emotional roller coaster of intense highs and the following low lows was brutal. When I came emotionally crashing down the last time, I felt suicidal. I quit.
Failing to manifest the lottery was a crushing defeat for me. It was the first time ever that something I really, Really, REALLY WANTED had failed to manifest. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out what I'd done wrong. My way of doing things had always worked before. Finally I decided to give up on the Law of Attraction. What good was something that worked for some things but not the things that really mattered?
In 2008 I was walking one night, when out of the blue, the reason I'd failed to manifest the lottery popped into my mind. The very first thing the Rosicrucians had taught me was, "You can manifest anything you want as long as you don't try to control how the desire comes to you." I couldn't believe it! I was so angry with myself. It hadn't occurred to me that trying to manifest winning the lottery was forcing the Universe to deliver the money through only one method. If I'd simply focused on the money, and let the Universe figured out how to get it to me, I would have succeeded! It felt good to figure out why I'd failed but I wasn't willing to try again. The failure still hurt too much.
In 2009 my girlfriend challenged me to go for it once again. Initially I wanted nothing to do with it but the idea wouldn't leave me alone. Finally I realized I had to go for it. I had to know. If I didn't try, I knew I'd wake up an old man one day with serious regrets. I called up my business partner and let him know I was leaving the mastermind group building business we'd just launched. He was livid but there was no way I could do both. I knew that figuring out how to manifest the money was an all or nothing kind of deal. To succeed, I needed to commit myself fully and completely. I lost some money walking away from the business, as well as a year of my time I'd invested into getting it ready but that was the price, I paid it.
In 2015, after almost six years of research, analyzing and testing, I discovered how to achieve guaranteed manifesting results. I was beside myself with excitement. I hadn't discovered a magic wand, but I'd found the next best thing. As long as I could positively answer all 12 alignment questions, which would cause me to feel consistently good about manifesting the money and the lifestyle of my dreams, I knew I'd succeed. And that's where I am as of this writing on May 5, 2015. I'm working on positively answering all 15 questions. I'm inches away from being done and looking forward to proving that it's possible to achieve guaranteed manifesting results.
I firmly believe that my success will do for other conscious creators, what Roger's success did for other runners. Once people see that there is no wall, many are going to break through their limiting beliefs and manifest the kind of life changing results that everyone dreams about, but so few have realized thus far.
I know that when this happens, we're going to have officially stepped over a demarcation line in human history. The world will have been one way before, and completely different afterwards. Within our lifetimes, children are going to be born into a world where it doesn't matter if they are black, white or brown, male or female, rich or poor, they are going get to grow up knowing they can manifest anything they desire. An equal playing field at long last! The future holds incredible potential, but to see that world realized, it's going to take a lot of conscious creators who are willing to buckle down and go after their dreams full out.

*I originally heard the story of Roger Bannister's success on a self-development audio created by the multi-millionaire business leader Craig Holiday in 1998. I still have the audio. My online research verified that other runners went on to run sub four miles within two months but I have been unable to find out exactly how many**. The number could be as low as two or a high as 26. After Googling around and see that nobody had an official website that I could count on for solid facts, I gave up. For me the actual number is unimportant, it's the idea that once a belief barrier is broken, that other people suddenly can achieve the once impossible too.
