Be A Heretic for Your Dreams – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday May 13, 2009

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

~ Albert Einstein

einstein2Do you have a great idea; a dream so big that it could change everything? This Einstein quote highlights his observation that those who bring real change are always met with resentment by the purveyors of the status quo.

Throughout history, ideas that eventually gained wide acceptance were greeted with mistrust or as revolutionary or heresy. Those who conceived them have been called lunatics, heretics, and worse.

The fact is that if you have an idea – no matter how great – that shakes up the status quo, you are going to encounter this force of resistance.

Are you ready? Do you believe strongly enough in your idea, in your cause to be ridiculed and called heretic for it? Are you so committed to your path that you are willing to risk it all to see it through to fruition?

Here are few famous failures to remind you that “the experts” don’t always know what they are talking about.

Believe in yourself. Believe in your idea. Believe in your vision of what can be! Proudly be a heretic for your idea and go for it! That’s what has always changed the world.

Be peaceful Be prosperous!

One reader wrote, “(My) mind is officially blown!”

Author Graham Hancock said, “We are a species with amnesia.” This book begins the awakening. Is it fact? Is it fiction? You decide!

My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
