Once a I went rock climbing with a friend.
A long time ago.
And climbs are rated kind of like Earthquakes.
On a log scale.
So a 6.0 climb is twice as hard as a 5.0 climb.
And at the time, I felt comfortable on a 5.5 climb.
5.6 was slightly outside my comfort zone.
5.7 was stretching it.
5.8 was too difficult to be enjoyable.
Anyhow, we had done a bunch of climbs and we had time for one more.
He took me to a “face” climb.
Meaning there weren’t any big holds or cracks.
You had to “read” the face of the climb and carefully use your hands and feet so carefully climb up.
If you missed, or went off balance, you’d slide down a bit.
Definitely NOT like those rock climbing walls with big easy holds.
Anyhow, my friend said it was a 5.5 face.
Which seemed easy.
So he went first, putting in all the “protection” on the way up.
Into the bolts that had been drilled in.
To hook the protection into to put the rope through.
In case anybody fell or slipped.
Anyhow, I climbed up fairly easily.
“Wow, you walked right up that,” with a huge grin.
I didn’t know what the big deal was.
Until he told me.
“I lied. That was a 5.8.”
Had he told me it was a 5.8 face before, I would have been petrified.
But because I thought it was a 5.5, an easy climb for me, I “walked” right up.
Law Of Attraction
This is a case of believing it and then seeing it.
Or believing it and then experiencing it.
Belief is something that’s usually in the land of LOA mumbo jumbo.
The way it’s described is almost like a magic trick.
“If you believe it, you’ll see it!”
As if all you need to do is close your eyes, believe you’re rich and open your eyes to see the magic bag of money left by the money fairy.
But the missing ingredient is the behavior that creates the money.
If you BELIEVE something is difficult, this will affect your actions.
The actions will VERIFY what you believe to be true.
But if you BELIEVE something is easy, this will also affect your actions.
And your actions will verify your belief.
The problem comes when we only PRETEND to believe something.
Most people confuse “wanting” with “believing.”
Wanting is automatic and comes from the naive, childhood mindset.
Children want something, and they think because they want, they should get.
But for adults, it’s a bit more complicated.
Wanting comes first as a raw instinct.
Then you need to use your adult mind to transform that want into a belief.
Beliefs turn into actions which turn into results.
This takes time.
This takes diligence.
But it’s not nearly as difficult as most people imagine.
