When I was young, I was skeptical. I wanted empirical evidence showing me why I should invest my thoughts and time into creating a vision for my life and business, and why getting absolutely clear by writing it down was imperative to achieving success.

Although I couldn’t find adequate answers at the time, I reluctantly did as others suggested, purely because they were far more successful than me. At the age of twenty-one, I created a grand vision for my life and my career.

I had only a high school diploma, and everyone told me that I needed a college degree to really succeed. But I decided to take a different approach and went into business at a very young age. For the next twenty-five years, I followed the belief that if I allowed it, the universe would guide me and bring me whatever I needed to fulfill my visions of being financially free and living an extraordinary life.

After making millions of dollars, both for myself and for others, I eventually went searching again for the answers to the question I’d had twenty-five years earlier.

The Quantum Physics Connection

I couldn’t help wanting to understand why I needed to start with a clear and precise vision. As a child I was always very curious. My parents could not answer the questions I had about success, so I sought out the best minds and teachers in the world to educate me on how to have an abundant life in all areas.

My research at first took me into exploring quantum physics, the study of how the world operates at the smallest level. Since we live in two worlds—visible and invisible—it’s important to know what these two worlds offer us. Scientifically, we now know that even though we cannot see the connections, the two are totally interconnected at every level.

While Newtonian physics helps us understand how to navigate the physical world, quantum physics helps us understand the non-physical world in which everything is connected to everything else and from which all known physical “things” are manifested.

What we’ve discovered in this new realm of quantum research is that whatever we focus on and emotionalize often, we will attract and actually see in the quantum field of all possibilities—or better yet, probabilities. This means that the more clearly we are focused on exactly what we want, the faster and more easily we’ll manifest everything we need to make it a physical reality.

Since all material things move from the non-physical to the physical reality, our vision and goals are paramount in the process of achievement. Our vision and focus act like a magnet that attracts and connects the pieces together.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the universe operates by natural laws, in a precise and perfect order. Our vision must therefore also be precise and exact in our minds in order for whatever we need to be attracted and shown to us by the intelligent forces that govern all of creation. When we focus our brains on what we want, we increase the amplitude of the cellular vibration and cause the “attraction” factor to take shape. Just as a magnifying glass can focus the sun’s rays and create a fire, focusing on our vision and goals keeps us in the right vibration and attraction field.

When we choose a vision or goal that is bigger than our current reality, we are creating a gap or vacuum between what we want and where we currently are. We know from natural law that nature fills a vacuum in the fastest and most efficient way possible.

The Brain and Heart Connection

The latest research proves that when we’re fully engaged and emotionalized in our clear vision, we emit a frequency from the brain and heart that penetrates and permeates all space and time, and draws to us everything that’s in resonance with the image we’re holding.

The frequency we emit is our personal electromagnetic frequency. Just as a radio station sends out a signal, we send ours out based on our dominant thoughts at both conscious and subconscious levels.

Imagine the way an apple seed attracts the nutrients it needs from the soil to grow its roots, then sprouts above the ground where the sun adds its magical nourishment through photosynthesis—and lo and behold, the seed becomes an apple tree.

In the same way, you will attract exactly what you need to realize your dreams when you genuinely believe and feel your vision becoming a reality. It’s the clear and consistent vibration of your vision that effects this miracle of attraction. You provide the seed, the universe provides the resources.

To cause this process to happen, you simply need to make the vision you hold within your mind more real than the current results in your outside world. Then and only then will the universe begin to present its riches to you in the most convenient and efficient ways possible.

Your clear vision is your seed. Plant it wisely and precisely.
