Have you ever heard the of manifestation? No? Me either – until yesterday. I knew this phenomenon by the name of visualization but, at the end of the day, who cares what name you give it as long as it works – correct?
Check out the very cool picture and the story accompanying it, courtesy of Fernando Varela’s FaceBook Page:
Now, that is one heck of a birthday present, wouldn’t you say? And an even bigger and surreal example of how manifestation can actually unfold if you work hard, pay your dues, believe that everything is possible with God and are blessed with an enormous amount of vocal talent.
Now, although the chances of meeting Oprah is a long shot for the majority of us, we all have personal goals and dreams which have yet to be fulfilled. The trick is to focus on the prize and work with unrelenting passion toward making the dream a reality.
I have had the opportunity to experience visualization/manifestation a couple of times in my musical career and, each and every time, these experiences have materialized as a result of work, Work, WORK! As the saying goes, “success is the result when hard work and preparation collide with opportunity“.
Fernando had the dream. He was more than ready – his voice is pure gold and he has worked extremely hard to raise the value of his golden instrument in the music world. And, when opportunity came knocking, asking him to perform in the company of the great David Foster for Oprah Winfrey, he was set to go!
For those of you not familiar with Fernando, you may remember him as a Top 4 Finalist on America’s Got Talent Season 8. He was a member of the classical crossover group, Forte.
However, he has since embarked on a remarkable solo career and has not looked back.
Congratulations Fernando and Happy Birthday! May all your dreams continue to be manifested.
