Joe, remember that we can manifest anything into being by the will of our spirit.
I mean, not shit like "I manifest a bag of In N Out burgers.... NOW"
However, with enough gumption you could have that bag o burgers brought to you by someone compelled to by your will, and not in a negative way.
Subtle changes in your own attitude and bearing can change how others perceive you. This can change simply by body language.
I wouldn't have thought it possible to start the kind of band endeavour I have, but it's working and I must work hard at it and it will succumb to my will.
It is my.... Destiny.
