Inspirational Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean

piratecompassWhat is it that you desire the most in your life? I know, it’s a loaded question right? Do you even know what it is that you desire most? Maybe it’s not just one main thing, and that’s alright! But can you at least point out one thing, place, situation, person or status that you feel the strongest about? Now that you have that in your mind, how do you get there? Where is the compass or the instruction manual?

I made mention of the compass used by Jack Sparrow in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean and how it constantly points the way to the thing that Jack, or whoever holds the compass, desires the most. There is no set direction or true north. It only points one way, and that way can change, depending on your thoughts and desires. Notice that the compass stops working when Jack is torn between two desires. The course or direction isn’t as clear as before, as the compass is now sporadic. The compass will only point the way to a certain desire, or the strongest desire.

The same is true for you and I. Our thoughts are our compass and our actions steer us in the direction of our truest desires. When our concentration is focused on obtaining that desire, our actions fall into accordance and achieve that desire. When our focus is on multiple desires, one not being more important than the other, our thoughts and actions are split, scattered and not as concentrated as they should be. What happens then? One or more of our desires is not getting enough attention and will not come to fruition. As an example, when I hear of people that have multiple businesses as they strive to produce multiple streams of income, I have to think of this scenario. Either one or all of those businesses is lacking attention and will suffer. For those of you who have more than one child, you know what if feels like when they are all at your heels trying to get your attention. Your mind just wants to shut down. The same applies to these businesses, you just can’t give them all the attention they all deserve. The sure path is not as clear. The compass is sporadic as it is pointing back and forth from one business to the next. Thought energy is spread so thin that it can never be as concentrated as it should. Concentrated thought and action towards one business will produce 10 times the results than 10 times the businesses with partial concentration and attention.

Don’t lose your focus with distractions, make sure your compass constantly points in its direction. You really do have more control than you think, you just have to think it so. Just as Jack, when you look out across the distance, you should be able to see what it is that you want. It should be clear as day to you. Though others might think you are crazy and a dreamer, maintain that focus and you will get what it is that you desire!

Once again, control your thoughts, control your world!
