Synchronicity - From The Bank To The Ballet
Synchronicity? The abundant universe? The universal subconscious?
Call it what you will, but do you believe the concept?
Do you even understand the concept?
Phew, 5 question marks in a row, time for some answers!
I firmly believe in the concept, and you'll find that most successful
Basically the theory is, that if you decide firmly and precisely
enough what you want, and take action towards it,
then 'luck', 'coincidence', and 'opportunity' will present themselves
My example follows the title of the goal achievement book
classic, 'Talk and Grow Rich', by Ron Holland.
The message of this book is that you should talk to everyone and
anyone about your goals, and it will trigger these opportunities.
A word of warning though.
As soon as you get a negative response from someone about your goals,
do not talk to that person about them again, it's that simple.
They will expose you to negative energy, which will harm your
Don't prejudge anyone either, but as soon as the response is
negative, don't carry on with that person, ok?
Right then, here's my example...
One of the jobs in my dank and distant past was as a bank cashier,
and one of my ambitions has been to appear on The Royal Variety Show,
with a unicycle ballet act.
Now don't laugh, unicycle ballet is very artistic, very theatrical,
and very emotional, particularly if you don't wear the padded shorts.
I mentioned this ambition to my colleagues at the bank, and added
that I really needed to find a choreographer.
One of my colleagues told me that she had a customer who had
represented Great Britain in ice skating at the Olympics.
'That's interesting', I said.
Two days later, I was serving a customer, and out of the blue, he
said 'So, I hear you need a choreographer for your unicycle ballet
It was my colleague's customer!
So within 2 days of my mentioning my ambition, I was talking to an
ex-Olympic ice skater!
How about that!!
I had never met him before and I doubt I would have found him
We swapped numbers, and met up a couple of days after that.
It works, this 'Talk and Grow Rich' stuff, it works.
Try it, you'll be stunned by the opportunities that come your way.
Remember the caution about the negative responses, but if you get
talking, you never know, maybe you too will go 'From The Bank To The
