I change my mind in an instant of time.  At the moment of change, there is a shift in my beliefs about who I am and what I can do.

Change always occurs in an instant.  I changed my life in an instant when I learned to ride the bicycle.  There was an immediate shift in my beliefs when I successfully rode for the first time.  One moment I didnít believe that I could ride, and the next moment I believed that I could.

Whatever changes I make always happen in an instant and happen first in my mind.  If I am having a hard time bringing about positive change, I need to examine my beliefs.  A key belief is preventing me from change.  If I alter that belief, I arrive at the instant where change is possible.  I will not talk myself into believing that change is impossible.  Positive change is something that I already know how to do.

The size of change is irrelevant.  Whether changes are large are small, they still happen in an instant, and they happen first in my mind.

Do you know what would happen if you started thinking new thoughts and taking new actions?  You would have a new life.

It's just that easy to get a new life.  You can get a new one anytime you want and anywhere you are.  You simply think new thoughts and take new actions.

For example, if you want to sail on a small sailboat around the world, you must think and act your circumnavigation into existence.  It's not rocket science.  It's easy.  Anyone can do it.

I first thought about doing a circumnavigation when I was in college after reading about teenager Robin Lee Graham's voyage around the world in his tiny yacht, Dove.  That kindled a desire that became a lifelong quest.  I thought about doing a circumnavigation for more than twenty-five years before I actually made it happen.

Why did it take so long to start the trip?

The reason it took so long was because I had to THINK and ACT my circumnavigation into existence.  I did a lot of thinking, but I didn't do much acting for quite a long time.

I had a good chance to do a circumnavigation in my Westsail 32 when I was thirty-five years old.  I got out of the Navy where I was stationed in Puerto Rico, and instead of setting sail around the world, I decided to think and act a Saudi Arabian adventure into existence.  I took a job in Riyadh at King Khalid Eye Specialist Hospital, and I put my circumnavigation dreams on hold.  During the next eleven years, I worked my fingers to the bone saving money, learning celestial navigation, studying charts, and reading books about sailing around the world.  That was the thinking part.

Next came the acting part. After eleven years,  I went to the Miami Boat Show and saw Privilege catamarans, and instantly I knew that I had found the boat on which I would sail around the world.  I acted and placed an order for a new Privilege 39 catamaran, and then I went back to Riyadh to work for another year to finish paying for it.

Thinking and acting now became the theme of my life.  I thought about running backstays and I had them installed on Exit Only.  I thought about spare parts and I purchased them. I thought about a watermaker and installed one.   I thought about radar, SSB radio, storm anchors, drogues and a thousand other things.  Every time I thought about what needed to be done, I took action and made it happen.  It only took six months of thinking and acting to prepare the boat for the voyage around the world.

All of that thinking was important, because when it came time to act, I knew exactly what I had to do to prepare Exit Only for the voyage.

Thinking and acting are what makes dreams come true.  You need both of them if you want to sail on the ocean of your dreams.

I'm glad that I didn't need to be a genius to know how to sail around the world,  If that was true, I never would have learned how to do  a circumnavigation.  I'm glad that I didn't need to be a nautical architect to design my own yacht.  If that was true, I would never have undertaken the voyage.  I'm glad that I didn't have to build my own sailboat.  If that was true, I would have never had all my adventures on board Exit Only.

All I had to do was to think and act my circumnavigation into existence.  It worked for me, and it will work for you.  Go ahead.  Think and act a sailing adventure into your life.

There is no limit to how good your life can become.
