Remember seeing a magic trick for the first time? I mean a real magic trick…where you said to yourself that’s impossible. It defies natural law. Like watching someone walk down the side of a building without falling and with no wires attached. If the artist would show you the techniques of how he did it you would still be amazed, just not mystified.
He would tell you how it was at first just a thought in his mind and how he had to make a decision to figure out what obstacles he would overcome to be able to perform this “magic”.
He would tell you about what he had to give first before he amazed you and everyone you know. This article is to introduce you to the Be – Do – Have philosophy. To people who have not been taught this information it may seem like magic but all you have to do is GIVE your mind the command of whatever it is you want. You see you must BE first before you can DO and you must do before you can HAVE. The philosophy works forward or backward because to have what you want you must do what is necessary (with an attitude of gratitude of course) and you must be the person who decides you can. Please don’t let my simplistic explanation reflect this profound message.

One of my mentors and hero’s was the late great Zig Ziglar. He was a great motivational speaker and even greater human being. He was the reason I choose to be a professional speaker. He said “If you help enough other people get what they want in life, you will always get what you want in life and what you deserve. This is the truth to have.
