Mohammed Ali once admitted that he was constantly telling himself and everyone else that he was the greatest way before he really was the greatest. As a matter of fact, he was screaming that he was the greatest from every hilltop that he could find in an effort to convince himself. Guess what? It worked!

There is just something about making a declaration, declaring it to be true, and truly believing it inside one’s heart. By making this inner and then outer declaration we can actually create something out of nothing and perform miracles, or at least do the near impossible.

Hopefully, I have made the inner/outer declaration thing clearer and have at least begun to plant a seed in your mind that something can come from nothing. The invisible can be made visible. But, this can only happen if we believe in our hearts and minds that it can happen, and then do the outer work to make the outer result a reality. If I have successfully done this, then the big question now is; does this miracle-creating only happen to famous, rich, and powerful people like Mohammad Ali, or can this happen to anyone?

Well, let me let you in on a little secret. Who do you think Mohammad Ali was before he was the greatest? Yup. He was just Cassius Clay Jr.

So now the really big question is who were you before you were great? Yup. You read that correctly. You are already great whether you know it or not. And your greatest greatness is still inside of you and in front of you. So let me ask you that question again. Who were you before you were great? And that answer is the same answer that Mohammed Ali would have given. You are a person with a deep inner-belief that they could be the greatest!

Now please share with the rest of us how you plan to use Granddaddy’s secret on outside success following inside success.

Thanks for your time,
