Since the beginning of this year I have sent notes to several
people, not only wishing them well for 2007 – but also telling
them that THIS is a Power Year.
Now, I am sending this to YOU as well.
Whenever a year ends in ‘7’ – it has got to be a good sign.
You can find at least seven reasons why this is so if you’ll
look for them.
Here is my short list of seven:
2007 is a Power Year because …
1. The number seven is so powerful it was often used in
the Bible – i.e. the story of Creation itself spanned 7 days –
and because I am a creator – I like the number 7
2. The number 7 was considered a magical number by the
3. The Babylonians and Egyptians believed there were 7
4. Seven rhymes with heaven.
5. There are 7 natural wonders of the world; 7 wonders of
the Middle Ages and 7 wonders of the ancient world.
6. My given first name, Matthew, has seven letters.
7. In 1987 I opened my first business in California; and I won
the world championship in kung fu in 1997.
Okay, now you can do as one person did and write to tell me,
“They’re all power years, Matt.” And you would be correct.
Yet, as I told him – “Although you are right – we are currently on
THIS year. So why not tell yourself that this year has special significance
and make it so.”
As you can see from my 7th reason, I went back in time and found one
major success that took place in a number ‘7’ year. I suggest you do
likewise, then tie it to WHY you’re going to do well this year, too.
Do not look for the things that went wrong in a number ‘7’ year as that
would activate your servo mechanism toward the negative. Focus on the
good and you will create more of it.
Focus on this year being especially powerful for you – and it will be. We get
what we’re looking for.
Or you can trot along, lumping this year with all the others, giving it no special
place in your mind or heart.
I prefer the approach I’ve outlined here. Why not give it a whirl and see what
great things you accomplish this year?
