Think Bold Pray Bold
Last week Gina and I took a 4 hour drive to my brother Michael’s summer home in up-state New York. We both needed some time off, away from the usual hustle and bustle. The drive up was very relaxing. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. I already sensed that 3 days away from work was exactly what I needed.
I was working diligently on a number of projects; finalizing the last chapter of my book, creating the format for my new television special and adding the finishing touches to my cameo commercials. There was a great deal of time and effort put into these projects and I was having some doubts as to weather I was making the right decisions that would lead to a successful outcome.
The following morning I woke up at 4:47 am. I decided to get dressed and walk down to the lake, which is only 25 yards from the house. The view was captivating, equaled only by the silence. Unfortunately, the uncertainties of my projects were still lingering in my mind. I sat down on a rock and said a little prayer.
“I just want to know if I’m making the right decisions regarding my book, television special, and my cameo commercials. And I want to know if they will lead to the success I desire? I’m going to be bold and ask for a specific sign. If the answer to these questions is yes, then I want to see an Eagle soaring by sometime this morning.”
When I finished the prayer I didn’t have any expectations at all. I simply let it go and sat there in silence. Within 2 minutes the most beautiful Bald Eagle soared down about 20 yards in front of me. It skimmed the lake twice and then landed in a tree to my left. With a smile on my face, I looked up at the messenger to my prayer and said, “Thank you.”
