Think and Believe

Diamond Mike Watson 

Look around you.  Do you realize that you are where you are because of your very thoughts?

I learned this at a young age. When you think about something, and hold that thought in your mind with conviction that it has already happened, it becomes real.

If I am truly disclosing an ancient secret, why do some people still suffer from bad luck, poverty, and ill health? How can you make your dreams come true? How do you give your life greater purpose?

Let me ask you a question: What do you want?

Take your time, for most people cannot answer this. Of course there will be countless fools who will tell you they want to win the lottery. But what if they did?  Their bank account would be one million dollars higher. Would their life change?  No, because their mission was complete. They received what they wanted.

Contrary to some things I have read, I do not believe wants and desires should be kept secret. In fact, they should glow for others to admire one’s conviction.  It is important to have good intentions.  Saying, “I want to be a doctor,” has no value without wanting to help others. Professing, “I want to write a book,” has no value without wanting others to benefit from one’s words.

Write your want on paper. Make sure it is concise. Does this want benefit you? Does it benefit others?  Can you see your want in your mind? Are you wearing the clothes you want to wear? Talking to the people you want to talk to? Doing business with the people you want to do business with?

It does not matter if you do not know how you will reach your want.  If you have a staircase with twelve steps, you will be able to get to the top of the stairs in twelve steps. Believing in your desire is the same as climbing the steps. The difference is, if you close your eyes and take the same twelve steps, you will still end up at the top of the stairs.

Adoption Life Adventures

He found his birth family 35 years later. Then he helped them find a ‘vanished’ sister.

Arika Herron, Indianapolis Star Published 5:14 p.m. ET Aug. 24, 2019.\ Everyone in “Diamond” Mike Watson’s life told him he should give up. The baby in the 60-year-old photograph was probably dead. And if she wasn’t, they said, she may not want to be found. It wasn’t out of callousness or apathy. The opposite […]

How I became Diamond Mike

My name has not always been Diamond Mike. In fact, when I was born I never had a name. The name Michael was given to me three days later by a loving woman and man who I would later call mom and dad. I was adopted. I never did meet my birthmother, who died in […]

Police Report

Today I filed a missing persons report for my sister, Debra Kay. It appears there was never such a report filed since she vanished as a child. This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]

      Thank you for that comment, Amira. Words are living things. Go forth and conquer in a positive way.

    Excellent post and very true – especially like the spin on how what you want should also benefit others. Thanks for the visit to my blog and the follow.

      Thank you, Emillo.

    This is a great post! When you write, people who want to become a doctor or a writer should want to help or change others, it is true. I hope many more people consider this before choosing a career of life path. I definitely love consulting a doctor who wants to help, as compared to someone who has chosen their career from selfishness or starvation (not a choice).

      Thank you. And to continue the thought, if you have a passion for making pizzas, you should be a pizza-maker. Whatever you do in life, if done with passion, will yield success.

    Well said. I agree wholeheartedly. I must have visualized something pretty amazing because I am exactly where I want to be with exactly the people I want to be with. If you can think it, it will be made real. Thanks for the post!

    I like your whole “if you can think it you can do it” attitude. I agree completely. In fact, I just wrote a post about how sometimes your environment and people around you can get in the way of reaching for your dreams/desires/writing excellence. To me, it’s a matter of clearing out all the extra junk that’s cluttering your mind and life in order to see and get at what you strive for. I love empowering posts like this, great job on it.

      That’s great advice, Lakin. You’re right– sometimes all the extra noise in the world gets in the way of seeing clearly. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
