Magic Happens

    March 1, 2002

Those are the words in an advertisement on the television screen when I walked into the living room yesterday. I was doing my usual morning routine of getting the children up and out of the house so Katherine would arrive at school on time.

Usually the TV is not something I notice. My normal words are, “Turn off the TV before you leave the room.”

Two words on the screen stopped me in my tracks.

More common was another saying that tells us “Something Negative Always (my translation) Happens”

I noticed a few specific details of this advertising.

1. It was provided by a company whose mission includes creating the most universally positive experiences for people who participate in their products and services. The company? Disney.

2. It made the statement as pure truth: obviously it is a belief they are sending out to the world. They translate this belief into something tangible each and every day to consumers who are ready and willing to share in their vision. I have many personal experiences where Magic HAS happened at Disneyland, while watching a Disney movie, listening to a Disney soundtrack, shopping in our local Disney store.

3. The statement is supported by creating the context for Magic to happen consistently, as I illustrated above. They don’t just say that Magic happens, Disney actively creates magic.

So how can we share this vision, not only in the arena of amusement parks, resorts, cruises, and other entertainment venues?

We can actively create a space for magic to happen in our lives. We can support our context with the firm heartspaced belief that magic is already happening all around us. Taking action towards magic continually makes more magic.

Sure, you could choose to have a “Something Negative Always Happens” mindset. Wouldn’t you rather have a “Magic Happens, and I am the Personification of the Magic Wand” mindset?

Try it out.

Magic happens.
