Does the actor playing the perfect role in a play, want to play that part? – No, he IS playing the part! How does this relate to attracting what you want into your life? When you become the lead player, the rest of the production fills in around you.
How did he get the position of playing the role? He prepared and practiced before the play began it’s run, so that he would be able to play the exact part required in the specific story. The play would not be successful if he could not play the part properly, if he was not the exact character the writer and director intended.
This is the same thing we should do in our lives when we want to be attracting a new and different life experience. Think about something you want, then think about yourself right now – are you playing the role of the person who is doing or having what you want? Likely you are not or you would be enjoying the experience now. Right now you are like an actor who wants to play a particular role.
In order to actually experience what you want you must first get yourself into the character of one who is in that role enjoying what you want. Just as in a play, once the play starts you just don’t magically become the perfect character. You can’t wait until then to become character, the director would never let you go on!
It’s the very same in life, if you are waiting for the thing you want to happen for you to to be the right person for the role . . . you will be waiting a long time! Now, with many things, you may already be in the role, it may be just a matter of you taking a specific action to realize the results. But with things that you are wanting that are beyond your current reality, you will need to learn a new role.
Think about the acting field, let’s say you were chosen to play a specific role in a play or movie. And then, you sat around not preparing yourself for the part, maybe you even complained that it was taking so long for everybody else to get ready. Do you think the director would let you go out and perform live or in front of the camera? Of course not, you are not prepared to play the specific charter at all and would not be able to fit in to the overall story line.
What you want in life is the story line! The question is, will you fit in to the required role to be included? You must first become the person qualified to play the new role, you can’t expect to be changed into the perfect character after it starts. And like a play or movie, it won’t start without the lead actor!
This is how you attract what you want, you become the perfect fit for what you want, then it can show up in your life. The whole production is waiting on you! If you continue to stay in a static want phase of your desire, you will continue to attract what that role aligns with – always wanting! Always wanting is a role many play, like the old wagon horse with a carrot dangled out in front of it to get it to move. The horse walks forward but the carrot is always just there ahead.
When you move yourself into the specific role of the person in your desire, then you move from ‘I want’ to ‘I AM’. Just like a good actor IS the character he is playing. What you experience in life is not about what happens to you, it’s about who you are. You are now going to be a match for attracting what you want.
Think about how actors and actresses prepare for playing a role, they imagine how a character be in all ways, they learn to feel as the person would, they relate mannerisms and the way they speak and carry themselves. The good actors actually get to where they can feel as the character would in order to pull off a believable performance and fit properly into the role as it fits the play or movie. You are an actor every day of your life but you are not usually choosing the roles you play, but you can!
You can do the same for yourself. Think and imagine being in the situation you want. What does it look like? What does it feel like? Put yourself in the role in your mind, enjoy it. This will help move you from thinking about not having it and wanting it, to feeling happening and aligning yourself with it. As you think and feel yourself in the part, you are aligning yourself energetically with it which acts to attract the rest of the show!
