The first time we talked about his colorful past, can you guess what my main question for him was? “Is professional wrestling fake?”
His answer? “Yes and no.”
Professional Wrestling is Fake? Perish the Thought!
Yes, it is fake because professional wrestlers meet before their matches to choreograph them and decide how the pre-determined winner will triumph. And, yes, because professional wrestlers use stage-combat skills to create the illusion of physical blows and (most of the time) mute the actual combat.
But, no, because professional wrestlers do perform the physical stunts you see and they do fly around the ring and smack the mat (and, sometimes, the hard arena floor).
I recommend that you, as you practice what you’re learning about changing your beliefs to create a more pleasing physical reality, take a cue from professional wrestlers.
Professional Wrestlers Have Created a Blueprint We Can Follow
Focus on re-forming your beliefs by telling better stories about your life experiences that choreograph desired outcomes.
Yet also understand that life will be happening and presenting you with unpredictable and, from your perspective, sometimes difficult to understand circumstances. Yet, although you’ll be “performing your physical stunts” and “hitting the mat for real” during your day, just as professional wrestlers do, you’ll already know that these intermediate experiences are simply part of the drama. You already know the final outcome because, like a professional wrestler, you’ve already scripted it with your new stories.
Just like a professional wrestler, since you are influencing the ending with your new beliefs, you don’t have to sweat all the little twists and turns of the “match”. And stay tuned to this blog to learn more about how to create a more pleasing reality…
