Not a fairy tale but, a true story, about: T L O P L C ????
(The Law Of Personal Life Creation.)
THINK DO HAVE
"What you think and what you do determine what becomes of you". Me
"Creator of your life are you, through what you think and what you do". Me.
(Add the words, AND DO, between the words THINK and YOU).
You'll understand why as you read this post.
Hi, hope you're well,
Before you DO anything you have to THINK. (With your MIND of course).
Ever think seriously about it? Probably not, but it’s true. And it's incredibly important to, what your life is like.
Here's a couple of basic examples:
A) You THINK, 1) “I fancy a cup of tea”. 2) You then DO the making. 3) After five minutes or so you HAVE your drink.
B) To get up outta your chair you gotta' first , THINK, 1) "I'll get up out of my chair". 2) Then you do it. 3) You HAVE an effect, you standing up.
You gotta' THINK before you can DO, anything. What you DO creates an effect in your life.
OK, got it yet? Read on and .......................you will.
(Below is a true story. Everything in red is a THINK and DO. Everything in blue is a HAVE in what you'll read).
T L O P L C in action.
A young man was trying to launch his acting career, failure seemed to be the one thing he had success with. By 1973, he had been rejected by every casting agency in New York City, with more than 600 rejections. In order to keep his days free, so that he could go round all the casting agents, he worked an assortment of odd jobs, including, fish-head cutter, lion cage cleaner, usher, and bouncer. Also, in an attempt to make ends meet, he began writing screenplays.
At one point he remembered his first screenplay, he thought. "I had written one hundred and eighty pages of garbage.....even though the script was bad it gave me a sense of accomplishment....I did sit down and I did complete a story from beginning to end.“ For better or worse, it’s there. This was something new for me because I never passed an English course.” During the next year and a half, he wrote eight screenplays but was unable to sell any of them. He decided to move to Hollywood and try his luck there, but he still had no success in selling his scripts.
In 1975, he had $106 in the bank. His beat-up car had just blown up, so the struggling actor/writer had to hitchhike everywhere. To make matters worse, his wife was pregnant with their first child. Even though he’d managed to pay off four month’s rent with the $700 he’d earned on a small film role, things were looking bleak—so bleak, if fact, that he was forced to sell his dog, Butkus, a 135-pound Bull Mastiff.
He stood outside a shop and tried to sell his beloved dog to strangers for $50. Finally, someone bought the dog for $25. He cried as he walked home. The day he had to sell his dog was one of the lowest days of his life. He recalls that day saying “It was either the dog or us. Trust me. I thought it was over.”
Shortly after selling his dog, he saw a fight between Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner. Wepner was the 30:1 underdog. Inspired by this fight, he began developing a screenplay. For the next three and a half days straight (without sleeping), he and his wife, wrote the first draft.
He took the finished script to his agent and received an offer of $75,000 (about $350,000 £250,000 today) from the film company, United Artists. This was a huge sum of money to him, he had no money and a baby on the way. He wanted to play the role of the leading actor, however, United Artists wanted a well-known actor such as, Burt Reynolds, Paul Newman, or Al Pacino to play the lead role.
United Artists came back with an offer of $200,000 for the script, without him in the leading role. He refused, knowing that all these years of dreaming about this day would pay off. The offer went up as high as $340,000, to which he said, “I would sooner burn the script . . . than have anyone else play the lead role. Even if the price goes up to a million, no sale.”
The producers at United Artists finally gave in and allowed him to play the lead role. However, they also lowered the budget for the film from $2 million to $1 million. He received $20,000 for the script and the SAG minimum of $350 per week for his acting duties. He also negotiated to receive 8 percent of the film’s net profits.
After he received the $20,000 for the script, he returned to the store, hoping the stranger he sold his dog to would return. After three days the stranger did return and the actor offered to buy the dog back for $100. The stranger refused, saying he loved the dog and would never sell him. The actor then offered $1,000 for the dog, to which the man replied, “No amount of money is going to buy you this dog.” Determined to get his dog back, the actor eventually paid the man $15,000 and also gave him a part in the film for the return of his dog. In the film the dog is played by the actors real-life dog, Butkus.
The film opened on November 21, 1976 and took in $117 million in U.S. box office sales, with the young actor making more than $5 million.
Sooo.......... dear reader do ya' get it now? Each time this person, thought, and did something were the steps in a process that the actor used to create effects in his life. A life where, he had what he didn't have before.
The process he used was, THINK DO HAVE or T L O P L C.
You can, THINK. You can, DO. So, you can HAVE, whatever you want in your life.
It 'aint Rocket Science.
This blog is all about helping you, and others, to THINK better, DO better and then HAVE better in life. Sooooo, go read some more of my, really helpful and authentic posts.
Wanna' know who the person was and, what film?? Read the P.S . below.
The THINK DO HAVE formula is, the most misunderstood, yet powerful, method of personal life control available to ever person on Earth.
What do you want to have in your life?
Thought Master and Mentor
P.S. The actors name is, Sylvester Stallone, the film, of course, was 'Rock'y. The story is true and shows just what 'Sly' Stallone had to THINK and DO to eventually HAVE the success he wanted. If he ‘d thought but done nothing there would have been no effects in his life. Thinking and doing are the causes that create all the effects in, your life, my life, everyone’s life.
The Law Of Personal Life Creation. TLOPC. THINK DO HAVE uses the powers that are already within you, your thoughts and your actions.
Few people ever get to, understand, develop and use them properly.
Learning to do so is, SELF - EMPOWERMENT.
Becoming, SELF - EMPOWERED isn’t, complicated, mysterious or miraculous. You just have to learn how to, THINK better. DO better and step by step you'll HAVE a better life.
