Write Yourself a Check Right NOW

"Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve" -Napoleon Hill.

My wife and I have written each other a check for $25,000,000. Each check is post dated 5 years into the future. We carry the checks in our wallets as a reminder to be committed in taking a little action everyday to make good on the check written to other person. Either way, we both win.

Take out your check book right now and write yourself a check for the yearly salary or income you expect to receive. Date the check for a "realistic" time in the future. Place the check on your refrigerator as a reminder to take a little action everyday.

Fellow entrepreneur, James D. Lee, retells a fascinating true story of how actor, Jim Carrey, used visualization to achieve his goals. Mr. Lee has an excellent blog "Online Business Freedom" with powerful information on achieving success.

Jim Carrey and the Power of Affirmations
Did you know that Jim Carrey used the power of affirmations and visualization to achieve his acting goals?

This is pretty interesting…

I’ve always believed in magic. When I wasn’t doing anything in this town, I’d go up every night, sit on Mulholland Drive, look out at the city, stretch out my arms, and say, “Everyone wants to work with me. I’m a really good actor. I have all kinds of great movie offers.”

I’d just repeat these things over and over, literally convincing myself that I had a couple of movies lined up. I’d drive down that hill, ready to take the world on, going, “Movie offers are out there for me, I just don’t hear them yet.”

It was like total affirmations, antidotes to the stuff that stems from my family background.”

-Jim Carrey, Actor/Comedian

And if that wasn’t enough, here’s something else Jim invoked to attract his success.

(This excerpt was taken from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”)

“Around 1990, when Jim Carrey was a struggling young Canadian comic trying to make his way in Los Angeles, he drove his old Toyota up to Mulholland Drive. While sitting there looking at the city below and dreaming of his future, he wrote himself a check for $10 million, dated it Thanksgiving 1995, added the notation “for acting services rendered,” and carried it in his wallet from that day forth.

The rest, as they say, is history. Carrey’s optimism and tenacity eventually paid off, and by 1995, after the huge box office success of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, his asking price had risen to $20 million per picture.

When Carrey’s father died in 1994, he placed the $10 million check into his father’s coffin as a tribute to the man who had both started and nurtured his dreams of being a star.”

Just gives you something to think about regarding the power of visualization, affirmations, and having clearly defined goals, doesn’t it?
