The other day I was listening to an interview with Gary Vaynerchuck. At one point during the interview he said something that really struck me. What he said became the inspiration for this episode. He said he knew he was going to be successful before he ever realized any of the success he now enjoys. He knew it. Are you familiar with this popular success formula?: Your thoughts lead to your feelings. Your feelings lead to your actions. Your actions lead to your results. Well, if your thoughts lead to your feelings, then it stands to reason that the more intense the thought, the more intense the feeling. And, the more intense the feeling, the more you will be spurred to take action. So, imagine how intense your feelings would be if instead of just thinking something, you knew it. This is the power of knowing. And, that's the valuable insight into success that Gary shared with us. The goal for all of us is to get our feelings (vibrations) as high as possible and keep them there for as long as possible. Because, amazing opportunities and experiences can only come our way when we're tuned in to them. So, what Gary said has really big implications for us. Knowing something about the success that's in store for us, can amplify our feelings and help us take the actions that will bring our success much faster. But there's a catch. We have to know it before we see evidence of it in the physical world. With this in mind, there is great wisdom in the maxim; Be still and know. Here's the focusing question I asked toward the end of the podcast. It may help you identify what you know about the future success and waiting for you: What do you know to be true about yourself (and your future success) that you haven't yet realized in the physical world?
