Hey what’s shakin, good to have you back. I’m Rick Jordan, and today we are going all in. He asked a couple people this question because I’m sure you might have heard this question before, right? Hey, if you had a magic wand, if you had a magic wand, what would your life be? Like? What would you want it to be like right now? Or if you had a magic wand? What would you do with this situation? If you had a magic wand? How would you change things? It’s an interesting question, isn’t it? Because I’ve heard people answer this question, and even in their answer, it’s like, well, that negates the point of the magic wand. Because in the answer, even our limitations, like well, I would just do this, you know, because I would have to do this over here, and it’s like, Well, wait, wait. Once you say that, you have to do something, you are minimizing the role of envisioning what your life could be like, if you could do anything, if you could have it any way you want it to. So if you’re talking about a specific situation, you know, maybe it’s a job, maybe it’s a career, maybe it’s starting a business, maybe it’s a relationship, maybe it’s a partner, maybe it’s a friendship, ending a relationship, you know, getting married, whatever. Having kids, I don’t know what, whatever you’re thinking about, but it’s like, you know, whatever situation you’re in right now, and this is great, because it’s a good question to ask when you’re in a tough spot. It’s a really good question to ask, especially when you are desiring change, because just by asking this question, means that you want it. In order for change, real change, lasting change to happen in whatever you’re going through right now, you actually have to want it.
Nothing will ever change, nothing will ever change if you don’t actually want it. Meaning if there’s something that’s keeping you in this spot right now, and one of those things can be like playing the victim, right? If you find yourself going around, and we’ll get back to the wand in a minute, but if you find yourself going around talking to people that say, “Oh, well, this is happening to me, you know, and all these other things are going on in my life, and I just don’t know what to do. You know, so I’ve got this, and there’s no way I can get out of this. There’s no way I can change this thing in my life, this just happened to me.” It is what it is. I’m sorry, but straight up, if you’re listening to this right now. That’s being a victim, and nothing ever changes. When you play a victim. Did you hear me? Nothing ever changes, nothing good will happen to you when you play the victim. Only when you say you know what, I’m going to do something about this and I’m going to take some action, whatever little thing it might be for today, I’m going to do that. That’s when you start to say, You know what, I’m not a victim. I’m in control of my life. Because life is happening for you, not to you. Life is happening for you, not to you.
It’s a fantastic phrase that I heard Tony Robbins say one time, and it’s true. Because if you think life is happening to you, you are accepting that you are a victim and can’t do shit for yourself. How does that feel? You hear me being direct today. I’m telling you, when you’re saying in life, this is happening to me. You’re saying I can’t do shit for myself, I suck. Life is happening to you. Do you? Do you feel weak? Do you want to feel that way? Or do you want to step up and be strong and say, You know what, I’m going to create what I want to create. This is hard hitting today. You know why? Because so many people get caught in this mentality of a victim and it holds you back, sometimes forever. But the good news is that you can do something about it today, however small it is. So if you had a magic wand you waived it, no limitations. If you find yourself saying, Well, I want this because I would have to do that when you waive that one. No, that’s a limitation. Anything goes when you wave that wand.
Think back to a time where you’re like a man, this is what I would love to do. Or this is who I would love to be with. Or this is what I want this to look like in my life. Just right now close your eyes and think back to that time. Think back to that time. When anything was possible, it could have been a daydream. It could have been the moment you closed your eyes, and you allowed yourself to get swept away by yourself in a vision in just imagination, how you thought you could be, this could be with a career, a job, or relationship, family status, whatever. But in that moment, I know you can think of this in those moments like this is it, this is what I want to go after, and you actually saw yourself in that role in that mode in that situation. That’s when you can wave this magic wand because I’m telling you to live your Daydream. Now is the time to live your Daydream. When you wave that magic wand, whatever it is, because when you put yourself in that spot, you’re doing right now, maybe that spot will be a year from now.
So let’s go back to that daydream and think about yourself in it. Now look back, and what’s one little thing you can do today to start living that daydream? When you start to put yourself there and start to wave that magic wand and actually start to see yourself in that spot. It may be hard at first, however, it’s a lot easier. Because naturally, you’ve done this before, which means easily you can actually think about this Daydream again, right? Now, then see yourself in that spot. You can see yourself in that spot now. As you start to put yourself in that place again. Now you can wave that magic wand. I mean, the crazy thing is, that magic wand is actually your actions. That’s how you wave it is doing one thing followed by another thing followed by another thing followed by another thing, which creates momentum towards where you are right now, in that Daydream as you’re thinking about it. Today is the day you can start to live your Daydream now. Everything you’ve learned and be yours, there’s no half twos there. There’s no need for twos, there’s no shadows, there’s no curves. It all just is because life is happening for you, not to you. So go out there. Live your day dream. Go All In.
