So what do I mean by “Lights, Camera, Action?” LIGHTS– preparing the set so you can see, having a clear vision of what you want. Very similar to having a clear vision about your dreams and goals. So many of us loose sight of our LIGHT, our VISION. Visualize what it is you see for your life and no matter what, keep that big picture in your mind at all times. CAMERA– the camera only see’s what is in front of it. How you set up the scene is exactly what the camera will film. Unlike the movie biz…we do not have editors. What you see is what you get! . So when the lights go on your camera should be ready to film exactly what you want it to. You are the director of your own movie. So you must clearly set the scene with proper lighting with a clear vision of your tasks so that your camera can film exactly what you want it to film. Your CAMERA is your thoughts, your conscious awareness of your everyday circumstances. Align your thoughts so they fuel your dreams. Always remember, ‘THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS” .
ACTION– do what you say you are going to do. There are those that take action and others that let opportunity pass them by. There are those that achieve their goals and others that come up with every excuse why they cannot. Action is simple….JUST DO IT! when you have challenges in your life, more than often you are the direct cause of those challenges. It is hard to swallow at times, but the reality is what you give out into the universe is what you attract back to your life. A very inspiring poet and inspirational author Dwayne Morgan stated in his book Everyday Excellence– “procrastination is the enemy of progress” that statement had such a profound affect on me (as I sometimes struggle with procrastination in my personal life) that simple truth inspired an ” AHA Moment.” Sometimes that is all it takes to identify that YOU are the DIRECTOR of your own movie. You get to choose if your movie will end up being a quick video release or an acadamy award winning performance. So the next time you face a challenge embrace the lights, camera, action philosophy and be ready, set to breath…… life is going to be good.
