Lack is a mirage. The three best strategies for getting to the holy land.

“Avail yourself of possibilities.”—Mike Dooley

Peter Jackson was paid $20 million for the script of King Kong. You’re not getting paid to create drama, so methinks it’s time to write a different script. Here’s how:

1. Give yourself an Academy Award for the amazing “drama” you’ve created thus far. In a world that brims with beauty and plentitude, the fact that you have been able to create such a convincing “story” of lack and struggle is truly an accomplishment. The special effects you have employed to overlook the world’s unending largesse are truly mind-bending. Take a bow and ask yourself, “If I have been this successful at creating separation and pain (and believe me, we’re all worthy of gold medals) what else might I create with a little imagination?”


2. Use the feeling for rocket fuel.
Once you get it that everything is your creation, you can use the emotions, the intense feeling to propel you into a different story. The only reason you’re still starring in the same, worn-out show (it should have been cancelled in 1989 when Seinfield went off the air) is because you’ve pitched a tent. You’ve completely forgotten that there are lots of other destinations on the map. Because you endlessly harp about “where you are” and “what’s going wrong,” you’ve driven in the stakes. At any time, you can move to a different location, a different story, a different reality.

3. Zip it up. With our words, we prophesy the future. You may not like the site of your present tent, but there is no need to tell the world about it. Use your words (do I sound like a parent or what?) to tell a more pleasing story. No matter where you’re camped, there are blessings and miracles nearby. Instead of belly-aching about the script, the campsite, the life you’re currently experiencing, focus in on everything that’s going right. Use your words to vocalize that. Once you begin to use your laser superpowers for possibilities, miracles and joy, you will suddenly find yourself on a whole new stage, accepting a whole new Oscar.

  1. I love you Pam Grout, you are so wise and inspirational. I just need to keep it in mind instead of forgetting and getting disheartened!

  2. Thanks again for a most timely post, Pam.  It just so happens that I expect to win my first (real) Oscar any year now.

  3. After reading your post I smiled. In 5 days I pull up stakes and move from The San Fernando Vally where I have lived my whole life and am moving to Carpinteria, the sleepy little beach town I have always dreamed of living. I go with my new love and writing partner, Kim where we have penned our last screenplay. We are halfway done with our second but I think I’ll accept the Oscar for it now. Thanks.

  4. Good lord, I love your posts, Pam Grout! You can’t imagine how much I appreciate you. Thank you! ♥ (I’m sooo excited for Michael and his new love, too. 🙂 )

  5. You have such a unique and awesome way to deliver your message, Pam. After several (too many) seasons of my old story, I’ve started a whole new story that has been amazing so far!

      • Yes, so true. So far I’ve received a stock option payout that I never really counted on receiving and my best month’s royalties ever! The Dude abides! 🙂

  6. feeling blessed I found you via Wayne Dyer, love E Square, thank you for your wisdom & sharing…blessings!!!

  7. Thank you for tirelessly cheering us on in your inimitable way; er in The Groutian Way that you do this for us.

    We slackers know what we’re supposed to do to create the new story, but we truely need the constant reminders. You prop us up so well, Oh Groutian One!

  8. Another good reminder. On my screen saver when I open my computer is a girl walking on the beach leaving footprints. The saying is ” You have the power to day, this is not how my story will end.” I’m 65 and there is still time left. I loved E squared. I also get daily quotes from Abraham. I can turn my thoughts and beliefs around. THANKS!
