Okay. Time for a fun story that illustrates one person’s extreme commitment to telling the best-feeling, believable story possible. (Click that link to Tweet it)
Our hero is a boy who has already figured out that the stories we tell ourselves (the value and meaning we assign to things) are vitally important because they create our beliefs.
- And our beliefs create our expectations (unconsciously).
- And our expectations are the vehicle for our coherence with the energy of the quantum field – which creates our material reality.
- Hence, the stories we tell come true.
The Young Boy Who Wanted a Pony for His Birthday
There once was a young boy who wanted only one thing for his birthday – a pony. He lived on a farm with a barn and horses, so there was plenty of room and he felt it was a realistic desire.
He woke up on his birthday morning knowing that he would soon be riding on his pony. Later that day, after celebrating with his family and eating his birthday cake, he took off racing for the barn.
Both his parents, concerned because they simply could not afford to buy their son a pony right now, ran after him.
When the parents arrived at the barn they heard a commotion in one of the stalls where the farmer had been storing manure for use on their vegetable garden.
Opening the stall door, the two adults found their son gleefully shoveling around in the large amount of horse manure there.
“Son,” the mother asked, “what are you doing?”
“Finding my birthday present, of course!,” exclaimed the boy. “With all this manure, there’s gotta be a pony in here somewhere!”
Funny Story, Smart Guy, But There Still Wasn’t a Pony – No Matter What Story He Was Telling
If you’re feeling a little pessimistic right now, you might say to me, “But it didn’t matter what story he told; there was still no pony.”
And I’ll say, yep, you’re correct. And, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, you’re guaranteed to have lots of instances in your life where you’ll find “no pony”. (Click that link to Tweet it)
So my question to you is this: knowing that it’s a certainty you’ll be temporarily disappointed sometimes, would you rather be “right” (by telling the pessimistic, I’ll-believe-it-when-I-see-it story) or would you rather be “prepared, resilient, and best capable of handling however the universe is connecting your dots at any given moment” (by telling the better-feeling, believable, I’ll-see-it-when-I-believe-it-story)?
I know what story I’m going to choose today. And I hope you’ll be joining me.
