If You Can Dream It, It's Yours

"There's nothing capricious in nature, and the implanting of a desire indicates that its gratification is in the constitution of the creature that feels it." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson from The Selected Writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wow. That's a strong statement. 

First, nature is not capricious--she doesn't play around. You wouldn't *have* the desire if you couldn't *manifest* the desire. POWERFUL stuff.

Kinda reminds of Napoleon Hill's classic: "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve."

More from Emerson: "Our desires presage the capacities within us; they are harbingers of what we shall be able to accomplish. What we can do and want to do is projected in our imagination, quite outside ourselves, and into the future. We are attracted to what is already ours in secret. Thus passionate anticipation transforms what is indeed possible into dreamt-for reality."

And, "Do that which is assigned to you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much."

Well... what are you waiting for?

You've been inspired. It's time to reap your destiny!!!!! (!!!!!!) :)
