what you think you become .... clear or conflicted
There is a very common trap that people fall into, which is thinking
a thought about something they want, immediately followed up with a thought
about why they can’t have it.
Imagine yourself in this scenario. You spend half your time
thinking about the success that you want to have in your acting career, and the
other half thinking about how hard it is to get a break as an actor.
In fact, if you are like most people, it might be more like
twenty percent of the former, and eighty percent of the latter.
If we apply the principal in this case that what you think you become, what is it
that you are becoming?
The best case is you are probably becoming a frustrated
actor who wants success, but thinks it is unlikely.
To become the successful actor that you want to be, you need
to tip the balance towards thinking more about your impending success, and less
about the difficulties you may face.
Then you reach a position where the premise of what you think you become can work for
you, as you are spending most of your time thinking about what you want to become.
