The American Dream: It is Still Alive

Author: Robert Kempster

Tough times or tough Economy or not. One thing I do know is that the American dream is still alive. I look around me and I see many people failing, and everyone blames the bad economy. However, the truth of the matter is that new wealth and new riches are being created daily. Look around you, there are still people living the dream. Get in the zone, or get someone to help you get in the zone. Remember that Napoleon Hill in his book "Think and Grow Rich" it is all about the power of visualization. The book contains a lot of material and is filled with examples of successes and failures. It gives you an overview of the ingredients required for either. It is all up to you as the individual to define yourself and what you want. I am fired up to achieve and so should you be too.

In order to create anything on this world, you must first create it in your mind, then it will be manifested through your efforts into reality. You have to realize that everything is a building block to complete the project. The Process remains the same throughout history: No one has ever created anything without first visualizing it. Ever before man was able to fly, man had taken to flight in the Mind. The story of Icarus' flight is such an example. If you Google the name Icarus, you can get the details. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale in his book "The Power Of Positive Thinking" was also referring to the gift of visualization.

The fact of the matter is this; YOU CAN, ONLY IF YOU THINK YOU CAN. Have a dream, visualize your goal, create a plan, create a time-line, begin the process, focus, perform, formulate, use a mentor, group support, stay on track, achieve your goal, and finally celebrate your success.
