Nearly 10 years ago, December 22, 1997, to be more accurate, my wife and I visited the Great Wall of China for the first time. Yesterday, some 10 years later, we visited with our kids, Frank, 7, and Faith, 3. What a thrill.
Furey Family visits the Great Wall
I remember when I visited the first time. My mind was so preoccupied with winning the world championships in Shuai-chiao kung fu, that I never really took in the magnificence of the moment. All concentration was on the future. Even the act of visiting the Great Wall was a dedicated act – designed to further motivate me to accomplish something BIG – a goal bigger than myself; something that would live on in my memory as a positive event.
Five days later, my goal was realized. I would return to America as a world champion.
This visit was different and not just because I was there with my children. It was different because I was there to express gratitude for the good that has happened in my life since my first visit AS WELL AS to teach my children how you can accomplish anything, even something as big as building a Great Wall, if you’ll picture it in your mind’s eye, make a plan and dedicate yourself to following through with whatever action is necessary to make it a reality.
The Great Wall is a Universe unto itself. It pulls people to come visit from all corners of the earth.
At the same time, YOU are your IDEAS are a Universe unto itself. When you picture things BIG and put a lot of energy into what you’re picturing, you can draw people to you who will help you – and where they come from will often surprise you.
Many of you discovered what I have to teach through seemingly strange means. And when you’ve followed my programs you came to understand that there was a reason we met – even if in a virtual sort of way.
Keep this in mind as you continue on your journey.
Visit power spots in the world. And when you visit, mentally write a secret message on the walls. Write your future where no one but YOU will see it and remember it. Then, when your vision becomes a reality, make a return visit to give thanks and to re-dedicate yourself to an even brighter future.
