“The law of attraction states that whatever you focus on, think about, read about,, talk about intensely, you’re going to attract more of in your life”- Jack Canfield.
This all makes sense right?
The things you have now or have experienced; the good, the bad and the ugly are all things that you once hoped for, prayed about or feared would happen.
I can create a list of all my experiences that would be so fitting to this principle but I will just list a few that I’m sure you would be able to relate to. it may not be the exact thing but on the basic premise, there are similarities. Some of these would fall in the good, bad and ugly categories.
1. Your current position at work. At some point in time, you wanted it so bad either because you hated your previous position or you just wanted this new experience. You worked towards securing it and you were successful.
2. A past or current relationship with a particular person. The things you worry will happen do happen because you think an speak about it more.
3. A job interview. You really wanted this job, you prepared for it, you felt you did well in the interview but moments later you start having mixed feelings. At this point, the confidence you once had that you will land the job now turns to worry. You started thinking about all the things you did and should’ve done differently so much that you convince yourself that you will not get it. Days pass and you finally get that anticipated email or none to confirm that you were not successful.
David McKay couldn’t have put it any better when he said ‘ your thoughts are the architects of your destiny ‘.
What you are passionate about and the dreams you have for your life can happen if you change your thinking. Be more concerned with positive outcomes instead of the negative. Start saying “I am”, “I can” and “I will” instead of “I don’t know if”, “I won’t because” or “I can’t”.
When everything around you is telling you that it won’t happen because you don’t have the skills or the resources; dare to think differently and expect the unexpected. When you start doing this, you find yourself being positioned in the right place at the right time to meet the right people to help you to fulfil your destiny.
After all, God’s timing is everything and it is perfect. It may not happen when we want it to or when we think it would but remember this, if you dream it, you can live it!
