Vitamin P – The Formula For Doing Anything You Want
There’s a lot of daydreaming going on. Many of us sit on the couch and think, “If only I could…” or “I wish I was…” We dream about being rich, or being movie stars, or sporting a fit physique, or taking exotic vacations, or starting an exciting new career. But, what do most people do about these things? Usually nothing. They take no action. There is inaction. And nothing changes. For most people, inertia takes over and it’s easier to stay on the couch and do nothing. And staying on the couch is no way to reach your dreams. It’s a shame that happens for most people, because the truth is, we can do anything we want. I know this for a fact. We can live out our dreams. You just have to know what those dreams are and be willing to take steps in their direction.
Anybody can do it. It doesn’t matter what you want. If you want to lose weight, own a business, act in the movies, find a partner, write a children’s book, or anything else, you can. Following a few simple steps is all you have to do. And I humbly offer that I’ve done it repeatedly and been fortunate enough to live out many of my dreams, including starring in Hollywood movies, producing and directing films and television shows, being a professional musician, being a published writer, winning martial arts tournaments, as well as shooting and horseback competitions, losing weight, getting in shape, having a great relationship, starting a successful business, making money, and a lot more. And trust me, if I can do these things, anyone can.
I’m not a tall guy, I’m not the best looking, I’m not the most talented, and I’m certainly not the smartest. But, none of that matters. I discovered early on in life that fortune favors the bold, and if you want something, you simply have to figure out what it is and go get it. Just ask Napoleon Hill. Years of martial arts training showed me the only thing that can stop somebody is the limitations they place upon themselves. As a kid, whenever I had a goal; whether it was to play on a traveling soccer team, get good grades, achieve a black belt in karate, or star in local theater productions, I simply applied action and intent to the tasks required and I would eventually find myself right where I had hoped: playing sports, doing well in school, winning at karate tournaments, acting in school plays, and eventually playing the character of “Raphael” in the hit films Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I & II.
Over and over, I realized that if I wanted to achieve something, all I had to do was apply a common process to each goal. In other words, all I had to do was to identify what it was I wanted and give some time and attention to it. It might just sound like simple goal setting to some. But, it’s not just that. Goal setting is part of it, but it’s just one step in the process. Once you know the goal, you still have to determine a path to reach it. You still have to travel that path with fortitude. Whether I was directing television shows in Lithuania, playing electric guitar in front of a packed audience at famous Los Angeles nightclubs, or dropping 40 pounds to get healthy, for me getting to those points came to be a process of following the same basic formula over and over. It was later, as my personal studies led further into philosophy, mythology, and religion, that I was ultimately given the tools to break that process down into component steps, identify them, and develop a simple formula for success that anyone can follow. It’s called Vitamin P and I plan to share more about it with you and hope you can take advantage of it as well.
