Here's an interesting idea.
What if two parallel universes collided and created the "reality" your experiencing now? But because these Big Bangs are happening every split second of every split second, you're actually experiencing a new reality right now, and now, and now, and now. (You get the idea). With this, we also experience Time and Motion. Space & Time.
Because anything is possible...because your life can be altered just by a simple action...there's a universe where you're eating eggs right now, or not wearing clothes, or showering in chowder, or a famous writer, or whatever. So it makes sense to me, on a very simplistic level, that focusing on a goal is a way to direct yourself into a parallel universe. Taking any action will put you in the right direction. And let's not forget the importance of your emotions. Just as food energizes your physical body, the gas of your mind, your thoughts, is equally important. What's the best mind fuel? Strong, positive emotion. Strong, positive expectation.
Successful people a lot of times say, "I don't know why this happened to me. I don't know why all this sudden success is happening."
It didn't just happen. It's something that's been growing, building for a loooong time. Or here's another idea: If not for a long time -- they put a monstrous amount of positive energy, positive action into a SHORT period of time. That is, indeed, a special, rare type of human.
For writer's, when I research them, it always true that they wrote their whole lives. They deserve their success, regardless if you hate their work.
I'm reminded of these saying:
Hard work pays off.
What goes around comes around.
What you put out, is what you get back.
And my favorite:
Energy goes where attention goes.
