As I've gotten older I've become more and more confident. I almost feel like I can do anything I choose. I'm not bulletproof -it will take a lot of hard work and a lot of balls to get it done right, but I can if I decide I want to. I can make a million dollars, I can get any girl I want. I havn't neccesarily done either, but if I wake up and decide to do it, damnit, I will. I don't believe this thought will make it happen, though, I think the only way thought can lead to fulfilling your desires is to focus it. Decide thats what you wan tto do and focus untill you get it. I like the ideas of small goal setting with the big picture in mind at PTGatsby mentioned, it sounds very good.
I'm also terribly naive, for what it's all worth.
