To some, this may be a sign of Kanye's apparent narcissism, but, there's another way to look at it. Years ago, when Kanye's affections for Kim weren't yet manifested into a relationship, he would photoshop images of himself next to the annual family Christmas Card. Now, mind you, the artist renderings of himself were absolutely dreadful. But, the importance of his action was how it transformed the his intentions from wanting, to actually seeing the possibility of actually experiencing it. The child-like scribble version of himself was actually part of the family. There is a clear difference from wanting something and believing that you will actually have it.
By inserting pictures of himself in the family photo, or in the construction plans, he's increasing his level of believe that this will happen. Once your belief increases, your actions, shift accordingly. Someone who believes in a certain future will behave in a manner that increases the likelihood of that future manifesting.
Think of all the goals you have for yourself. Do you see them as an unreachable fairy tale or do you actually believe that you will experience them in the near future? If you are having a hard time achieving some of your goals, take time to work on your level of belief and see what transpires.
"You can't tell me nothing....This is my life homie, you decide yours." -Kanye West
In a previous post, I talked about how much of our days, our lives consists of the outcomes from making the same decisions over and over again. Kanye seems to operate moment by moment. Yes, some of his decisions are downright questionable, but, there's something to be said about being aware of how much power you have to decide your life's course. If you don't like some aspects of your life. Get certain about what you want, then make a decision to make that happen.
Creating what you desire goes beyond drawing pictures of yourself and having an unshakable belief. Once you are clear in what you want, you've gotta be willing to work hard for it. One thing Kanye West, and any other successful artist has in common is their incredible work ethic. In this video, RZA talks about Kanye's regimen which included detailed planning of what was done and what they'll do next. Then he'd put in a full 12 hours of work using "focused energy." How much time and energy your are focusing into realizing your intentions? Maybe you don't have to dedicate 12 hours a day. Even as little as 1 focused hour a day can start you on your journey to an amazing 2015.
