I am a spell caster, I have the power to bring back your ex, make your business flourish, stop a divorce, and do anything you want for your life!
This was the first thing I saw in the morning today as I opened my laptop to begin with my work. A spell caster had left this comment on one of the articles probably for promotion of her magical services. For the next few minutes, I couldn’t help myself laughing till I shared this with the entire office.
Don’t take me wrong. My point is not to convince you to believe or not to believe in such stuff. Since she had left such a comment on a business article,it seemed quite awkward to read it there.
Anyhow, I moved onto the task of finding a topic for my next article. Being able to find the right topic is the toughest part of writing. So, I started browsing through the internet and recollecting my thoughts to get some inspiration to write. The comment from that lady still hadn’t left my mind. Come to think of it, if I believe what she was saying it meant that for a moment she has the power to do anything and everything I want for my life.
Maybe, she could tell me some good trick with which I can create some magic whenever I feel like. For the next few moments - I was completely lost into imagination - I wish I had the magic trick to fly, turn my startup into a multi-millionaire brand, visit the Moon every night, increase the number of hours in a day and so on.
I know it seems a bit vague. But this is what that we all want in our life:
A little magic, some inspiration, a good habit, strong faith, never-ending enthusiasm!
We all want some magic to transform our lives into something better. Someone wants magic for getting a job for which he has been struggling long. Someone looks for magic to get past the illness that has been troubling them for so long. And there are people, who just want magic to be happy and free of depression no matter what life unfolds for them.
Living a magical life with a perfect job, health, relationships, money is what that everyone seeks. So, now comes the BIG question - How do we lead such a magical life?
Well, through my experiences and research, I have made a list of some simple ways to add magic to our real life. And, I’m going to share it below with you:
"Want to add some magic in the way you manage your teams and projects? Switch to a project management software."
As already mentioned that most of us want magic for fulfillment of some desire or the other. But, seldom are we willing to give up the luxuries in life. All we want is an outside force or motivation source to do it for us.
I read this wonderful quote yesterday, "If you want something from life, you have to want it as bad as you want air.And you have to start TODAY."
Believe me this is true. If you really want that job then ask yourself,” Am I being 100%”. This question will make things crystal clear for you. For instance, if you want to setup your business or write a book start working 100% for it.
There’s no reason to seek external motivation as long you as really want your desire to manifest.
We all love the law of attraction theory which says that whatever you ask for is given to you provided you believe in it. Most of us even tell this magical theory to others. But when it comes to ourselves we just don’t give it a second thought.
That’s why I say - stop endorsing the law of attraction and start believing in it. If you will start believing in it, it will start working for you.
I have heard my employees talking,”Real life is so boring and depressing. Why is it not like how it is shown in movies and fairy tales”.
I was shocked to hear this. I agree there are times when you feel stressed. But then there are happy moments too. Okay, I am not saying you should start feeling the magic of sunrise and moonrise. There are things much more magical than that and which are worth being happy for.
For instance, this internet connection and laptop on which you are ‘being able to read’ my article. Ain’t this magic? Ask someone who doesn’t have it. And if you want this magic to last, then practice gratitude.
There’s a beautiful saying,” What you focus on grows, if you focus on lack the lack grows and vice-versa.”
Every night before you go to bed, make a list of 5 things for which you are grateful for. And, you will get to see the magic grow in your life!
So, if the above trick doesn’t work for your real world then it's time to take a break. You can plan a vacation to a secluded place for a couple of days. Make sure you leave your phone, electronic gadgets, and everything that can possibly distract you back home.
Find some good time to travel, write, and read about whatever you like. Give this time to discover yourself inside out. Tell yourself,” I am not here to be productive every minute. I am just here to be myself.” I am sure you will come back with your magic wand.
Most people I know, visit spell casters on a timely basis. Why? Just to find out if there is a possibility of some magic in their lives. Will they be able to get that job? Or will they be able to give upon smoking?
Think of the last time you went to a fortune teller. Did those words about your good or bad fortune make a difference to your life? Was the cast speller able to create a life of magic for you?
If not, then it’s time for you to create your own MAGIC formula.
