Are You Cursed or Are You First?

By Debbie Friedman

I was sitting at a benefit dinner as the speaker was interrupted, the final scores were announced, and everyone cheered. That night the Red Sox made history! In the American League Championship Series they became the first team in Major League baseball to come back from being down 3 games to win the series against the Yankees with 4 straight wins. Then, with another 4 straight wins, they swept the Cardinals for their first World Series in 86 years!!!

Best yet, they overcame a powerful belief. They shifted from "Cursed to "First". Awesome! As my friend, Mark West, shared with me, "Not since Babe Ruth played with the Boston Red Sox have they won a World Series. They called it the curse of the Babe when, after they won the 1918 World Series, the Red Sox owner sold The Babe to the New York Yankees. The Red Sox had not won a World Series until now."

As an extra added touch, Mark told me that the Captain of the 1980 Olympics ice-hockey team, inspiring the movie Miracle, sent each team member a MIRACLE t-shirt after their ALCS comeback. Sometimes we need to be inspired to believe in our greatest possibilities, potentials, and powers for success. Most of all, we just need to believe in miracles. We need to believe they can happen for us.

The Red Sox moved from "I can't to "I can to "I AM"!!! They moved from Cursed to First! They created their miracle.

If they can do it, you can do it.

Now, the truth is that I don't know what sparked their comeback or inspired them to live their dreams. I don't know what mighty force catapulted them to their great success. I DO know that something important shifted their consciousness, their beliefs that they ARE winners!

In our own lives, we may be taken out of our game by something small or something seemingly large. We may believe we are somehow "cursed". Beliefs or memories from the past can come back to haunt us and hold us back from stepping into our true power and prosperity. Sometimes we listen to the people around us who think in a world of lack and limitation. We may even allow those people who play small to keep us from playing large and embracing all the abundance and unlimited wealth that surrounds us.

Some people may feel they're not worthy or deserving of success and prosperity. Let me be clear - if you're here, you ARE worthy and you DO deserve. Your wealth and success is not related to deserving, it is based entirely on your consciousness.

What you believe is what you receive.

I wasn't in the locker room and I wasn't at the team meetings, so I don't know if visualizing played a role in their success. I DO know that visualization is a key ingredient for many sports teams and individuals. Pat Riley of the Los Angeles Lakers visualized with his winning team regularly in the 1980's. Jack Nicklaus has said that he's never taken a shot without visualizing it first. J.K. Rowling constantly visualized "instant fame and fortune for Harry Potter and herself as she wrote her celebrated series.

Your mind thinks in pictures and stories. As you visualize, you are creating a powerful positive roadmap for your future that sparks the creative forces of your subconscious mind and ignites the Universe to manifest your desires.

Only you can decide if you're cursed or you're first. Only you can choose. Only you can take the time to visualize your greatest good and highest vision. Only you can become the captain of your own team that is dedicated to creating miracles and magic each and every day.

Make the decision today to let go of any ideas of limitation. Instead, embrace all the wonderful, endless, limitless possibilities for your life and let your great good unfold in perfect ways. If the Red Sox can do it, YOU can do it!

Stay in the game with faith that YOUR miracles are happening. YOUR home run may be in the very next inning.

YOU deserve it!!!

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
