“Sometimes you just have to put on lip gloss and pretend to be psyched.” –Mindy Kaling

“The world will exhibit what you persist in affirming.”—Science of Mind

I just read a wonderful story about Mike Dooley, the former Price Waterhouse CPA who now writes bestselling books and the fabulous “Notes from the Universe” to which hundreds of thousands subscribe.

When he first started his job at the Big Eight Accounting Firm (I guess due to mergers there are now only four big accounting firms), he was straight out of college, wet behind the ears and felt completely insecure about his job.

He had no idea what he was doing or how to get out of what appeared to be “one mell of a hess.”

But he did know his thoughts had power. So instead of composing a big scheme for fixing his situation, something we all obsessively tend to do, he began visualizing himself successful. For five short minutes every night, he’d picture his co-workers giving him high fives and telling him “congratulations!” He saw himself walking proudly down the hallway, feeling good about “a job well done.”

As he says in his book, Infinite Possibilities, it wasn’t long before he was transferred out of the department in which he was failing so miserably into the tax department where he became a company superstar, getting opportunities to work all over the world.

The moral of this story? The less you get involved in the “how” of your intention, the better.

Any time we start “figuring how things are going to work out,” we block the magnificence of Source. The F.P. has countless magical ways to make your intention happen.

So forget the how! Focus on the end result.

  1. Thank you Pam for the great motivation but how would one handle the fear or worry or anxiety of things not working out your way. Pls reply. This is what makes one wonder about HOW.

    • We have dominion over our thoughts. The fear and worry will continually send us memos trying to get our attention, but it’s a better strategy to place fear and worry on the do-not call list. We decide. We get to chose what we think about.

    • Mike Dooley talks about the “cursed how’s”. Watch some of his youtube videos, I believe it will be very helpful. We don’t need to know how. We just have to feel the end result we want, then allow the Universe to do the rest!

  2. Pam –
    Thank you for this timely reminder to not mess with the “cursed hows.” Too often, I get sucked into the world’s message that it is up to me to figure out how to get more-get rich-look better-be skinnier. Instead of struggling, I visualize what I want with feeling and let the Universe do its job – figuring out “how” it will all happen.
