Default Michael Keaton reveals how he manifests success...

He revealed it in a recent interview...

(Michael Keaton is, of course, the highly successful Hollywood actor... He's incredibly diverse, having succeeded in comedic roles, action movies, and dramas... Even when he disappeared for a few years, he came back stronger than ever...)

The odd thing is - what Michael Keaton says sounds pretty much just like what Gordon Jay Alexander has been hammering into us all of these years!

Here's my excerpt from the recent interview with Michael Keaton... (Bold added by me...)

(Q. is the Questioner or Interviewer, M. is Michael Keaton...)
Michael Keaton: Then, you know that whole thing of how you can manifest things? It’s doable. Your attitude, how you look at things and what you can create is more in your power than a lot of people think.

Questioner: What’s the trick?

M: Here’s the deal: Everything comes down to the question of what do you want? You keep going back to what you want and you go, “Well, I have this”, but, yeah, what do you want? Then you have to drill down and have the balls to say, “If that’s what you really want, then you have to do X.” You know what the rest of it is? Good fortune. A couple of things go your way. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu calls my agent, and he goes, “I want to talk to him about this movie.” Because I like sports so much I use probably too many sports metaphors, but you gotta get tough and be competitive and not want to lie down. Certain things started coming around for me because I said, “I’m not lying down.” I don’t know. I’m probably over-analysing it.

...

Q. OK. But then what do you actually do after you ask yourself what you really want?

M: You’ll come up with another answer. Then you’ll have to keep asking yourself, Yeah, but what is that? And then if you can live in that — without sounding like I’m saying something that makes me want to go outside and vomit — you kind of raise your consciousness.
It's all based on "What do you want?"

Gordon's eternal question (check the archives), because many people don't really know what they want!

What I gather (from what Michael Keaton is saying) is that, you then keep thinking about what you want... and keep it at the forefront of your mind, and use it as your guiding light as to what you do...

Whaddaya think?

To me, it's fascinating... Especially since many people have never clearly articulated what they want... (And I've sometimes been guilty of that, too...)

Best wishes,

Dien

P.S. I got it from here...

And here's Gordon...

"So for over 6 years out here in Cyberspace, I have been asking the question, "WHAT DO YOU WANT?" followed by the question, "WHY?'. And I've been told that gets annoying. Especially to those that can't answer the question."

Default The tools to get to the "right" answer.

Not having much success this morning with my forum posting. Anyhow, the answer I've listened to for these many decades usually has several WANTS in it.

Often, TOO many wants. Which leads to distraction.

So, I always like to help them use the GJA SQ1 with the 5 lanes, or 5 rings of their personal circus as a starting point to get to the ANSWER to that question.

Financial.
Environmental.
Relationships.
Mental.
Spiritual.

Some add more, some split these up. Together they form a MAP of wants, and when you see you need to take ONE road with five lanes, it makes it easier to get your vehicle going in that direction.

Thanks Dien, I love Michael Keaton, just watched his performance as Ken Feinberg, and as always, he was excellent.

Hi Gordon,

If I have a flaw (cough!), it's probably that I have too many interests... or wants!

Anyway, I've been experimenting with what Michael Keaton said...

"And then if you can live in that ... [i.e. in what you want] ... you kind of raise your consciousness."

I interpret to "live in that" as meaning to focus on what you've figured out you REALLY want...

I agree with you that what you REALLY want is not just one thing... It will have multiple elements, as we are not one-dimensional creatures...

So, I've written down what I want ... it comes down to a monetary goal as well as some personal life and family-oriented goals too...

And, now that they're written down, I re-read it several times a day... I use it like a "compass reading" to re-orient my direction throughout the day...

I think it does help keep you "heading" towards those key Wants, and less distracted by the various other fun things to do...!

We'll see how it works...

Best wishes,

Dien

P.S. By the way, I'm always trying out new things... That's how you keep improving, yes?

Default Re: Michael Keaton reveals how he manifests success...

Thank you for sharing this interview. I like him mostly for him playing as Beetlejuice!

If you don't try anything new, you will be stuck at where you are and there's smaller chance for improvement. I try to learn new things as much as I can and sometimes it is useful, sometimes it isn't - the key is, you never know when you might be able to use it. By the way - it's good to exercise your brain once in a while
