A good basketball player uses faith when she shoots. She believes that her shot is going through the hoop. She doesn’t calculate the physics of her proposed trajectory. She doesn’t use math to score; she uses her subconscious and her intuition.
How to Become the “Micheal Jordan” of the Conscious Creation of Your Material Reality
Deliberate creators are a lot like basketball players. When they begin creating consciously, they must start focusing intent upon telling themselves new, better-feeling stories about all their life’s circumstances. Just as a beginning player must intently and deliberately adhere to proper footwork, form, and follow-through on her shot.
It’s work at first. It takes conscious effort to train the muscle memory. And neither are probably going to become Michael Jordan overnight.
But with enough practice, just like a great player’s shooting ability, telling the best-feeling, believable stories about your life’s events becomes a subconscious effort. A great shooter is no longer consciously focusing upon her foot placement, arm angle, hand positions, and follow-through; she’s practiced her routine enough that she’s now using the correct shooting mechanics unconsciously. A great deliberate creator has done the same thing with the correct mechanics of retraining her beliefs to be more closely aligned with her desires.
Even Michael Jordan Took Years to Become “Michael Jordan”
No one would expect a basketball novice to step onto the court in a varsity game and dominate like Michael Jordan. We all know it takes time, effort, dedication, practice, and persistence to become an all-star. But we also know that given enough of effort, dedication, practice, and persistence anyone can become a pretty darn good player (at least as good a player as is possible for you).
Give yourself leeway regarding creating a more pleasing reality. Spiritual “muscle memory” takes time; you’d been telling yourself those bad-feeling stories and holding beliefs which were not aligned with your desires, after all, for most of your life.

Don’t Worry About The “Missed Shots”; Instead Focus On the Fact that You’re “Shooting” with the Proper “Mechanics” Now
And also remember that an all-star doesn’t need to hit every shot she takes. Hitting most of them is incredible – heck, hitting half of ’em makes her an all-region candidate! And you, too, don’t have to hit every “shot” you take to consider yourself an all-star conscious creator. Focusing on your progress, not perfection, is a much better-feeling story anyway, isn’t it?

With enough practice you’ll soon find more and more of your “shots” going through the net as your beliefs and desires become more closely aligned!
