Are You Ready To Focus On Something Positive?

21

chesleySometimes it seems like the world’s going crazy, doesn’t it?  Earthquakes, famine, war, crashing economies and out-of-control celebrities.  We do what we can – donate money and time, pray, reach out . . . Sometimes it feels like a drop in the bucket.

If you watch much news, it’s easy to buy into the idea that we’re surrounded by nothing but darkness.  It’s enough to make you lose faith in humanity.

Take a second look.  There are still a lot of heroes out there.  Some of them make the national news, while some you might never hear of, but they almost always have one thing in common – they are in tune with their Core Desires and it produces something positive for not only themselves but other people, too!

Here’s an example.  Chesley Sullenberger – remember that name?  Maybe not, but I’ll bet you remember the story of what he did.  One year ago last Friday, “Sully” was at work, piloting Airbus A320 from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte/Douglas International Airport in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Soon after take-off, the plane hit a large “wall of birds” which shut down both engines.  Sullenberger had the choice of returning to LaGuardia airport or attempting to land at the Teterboro Airport.  Neither seemed like a viable option, so he tapped into his years of experience and made a frightening decision:  He would take the airplane down in the Hudson River.

I want you to imagine this:  One hundred and fifty-five people (including Sully himself) braced for impact as they headed nose down toward the icy waters of the Hudson River.  “. . . to have zero thrust coming out of those engines was shocking,” Sullenberger said later.  “The silence.”  One of the flight attendents, watching Sullenberger and his co-pilot Jeff Skiles fight to save the plane, described it as like “being in a library.”

Through this crisis, Sullenberger illustrated for us the incredible resolve and power (Conquering Force!) that comes from being in tune with your Core Desires.  Chesley Sullenberger knew what he was, and he pursued that calling with an unquestioning single-mindedness that led him to that day of decision and prepared him to create something positive out of a potential disaster.

  • He spent his childhood building model planes and aircraft carriers, and watching military jets at a nearby air force base.
  • He gained his glider pilot’s license at the age of fourteen.
  • At age 16, he learned to fly in an Aeronica 7DC  from a local flight instructor.
  • He enrolled in the United States Air Force Academy, and soon after was selected for a cadet glider program.
  • By the end of his freshmen year, he was an instructor, and by the year of his graduation he was designated the class “top flier.”
  • From there, he served as a fighter pilot for the United States Air Force, and became a member of the aircraft accident investigation board.

In an interview with Katie Couric, Sullenberger said, “One way of looking at this might be that for 42 years, I’ve been making small, regular deposits in this bank of experience, education and training.  And on January 15, the balance was sufficient so that I could make a very large withdrawal.”

Could you land a jet with 155 souls on a rushing, half-frozen river?

No, neither could I.

But can you be a hero?

You can.  In fact, you must.  You must do the heroic thing:  Search inward until you know what your true Core Desires are.  Only then will you unleash your Conquering Force that will propel you through all obstacles until you are immersed into the life you were born to live and the success you were born to enjoy.   Otherwise, your born abilities and numbered days will slip away, wasted.

Are you ready to create something positive and amazing out of your life?  Let me help you overcome your Invisible Barriers and hit the Jack-pot of success like you’ve only dreamed of!

    You are so right. It is amazing how frequently we hear in the news of everything that is going wrong in our country and abroad. However, when something like this happens how short lived it is. The most amazing part about this story is the decisiveness of this pilot during the incident. When this first aired some of the networks were playing the actual audio as the accident was happening. It is amazing how calm this man was and how quickly he processed the situation and made the decision to land in the river.

    My hat goes off to this entire crew for their actions they did on that day. It is just a small reminder that there are still good people doing good things everyday without recognition. The key is… you have to open to looking for them!

    Live in abundance!

  3. The human mind is, no doubt, capable of remarkable things. In large part this is due to the power of imagination and the inability of the subconscious mind to differentiate between what is real and what we have made up. We can use this power to help us or hinder us. We can choose to dwell on the disappointments in our life (replaying them over and over like a never-ending horror movie), or we can make a promise to ourselves to create our own “highlights reel” of the positive experiences we’ve had and make them the main feature in our head.

  4. Changing the messages that play in our head is an important part of changing our focus. Often, we aren’t even aware of how negative and limiting those messages are. If you want to go somewhere, tell yourself you belong there. If you want to accomplish something, tell yourself you are capable. If you want to move forward in your life, turn that negative voice into a positive one.

  5. Being positive is something that we should consider in our everyday lives. In this uncontrolled world, we are not really certain that all things will go our way. That’s why thinking to be positive all the time really helps a person in overcoming the challenges of life.

    Thank to perubatan Most of the times, when I find
    an episode or special particularly interesting Ill watch it several times, getting something new from it with each viewing. I missed the first times the shows were aired. That was in the late nineties and it was hard to keep up with the schedules of these comedy TV shows, especially when I was also attending classes for my degree program.

  14. Though i had read about the story but hadnt fully grasped what kinda decision the pilot had to take. It must have been nerve wracking to know that a mistake from u kills 155 ppl and destroys many families. Kudos to him for keeping his cool. And an inspirational post. Thank you

  15. That really is an inspiring story. We don’t hear enough of that kind of thing in the news these days, just doom and gloom. Let’s all do something positive today and see how much better we feel!

    I love your stuff Jack… I really wish I had had a chance to work with you when you were active in the industry. Stay positive…

  18. As you go about daily life interacting with people, you smile, hug, laugh, enjoy
    conversations with certain people and enjoy socializing with certain people. All this
    produces pleasant Feel in your body. Usually we don’t pay close attention to that, but
    if you wish you can tune into it, intentionally amplify it through high concentration
    then radiate out through your body into all directions around you. This can have a
    powerful cumulative effect on the people with whom you interact.Stop judging the person and, instead, offer your gratitude for the opportunity to explore your own tendency to drift into slow mode.
