Today we are talking about the law of attraction. We are going to go over some misunderstandings and some truths about the law of attraction and how we have leveraged the law of attraction to create the love, the marriage, the family, the business, and the lifestyle that we desired.
This concept actually started in the 19th century with a man named Phineas Quimby who was diagnosed with tuberculosis, which had no cure at the time. He felt really sick most of the time, but he found that when he was horseback riding he felt strong and healthy. He wrote about his experience in a study called mind over body, which to Phineas meant that the real trouble is in your mind, not your body. So if you can see something in your mind and believe it, it will become reality.
There are some elements of this that can be true, but it also doesn’t mean that just by telling yourself you are great at your job and that you are successful, that it will just happen for you. There’s more to it than that.
Identify what you want-- Any successful entrepreneur or business leader will tell you that it takes more than dreaming or imagining something to make things happen--it takes a lot of hard work. But it is still important to identify what it is you really want in life. Putting aside fear, if you could do anything in life, what would that be. What would your life look like? Be specific and write things down. And this can shift over time, but it is important to write it down and talk about it. And once you identify these things, start taking action on them.
Your thoughts need to reflect that new desire--Now that you’ve identified what you want, it is important to focus on the thoughts you are having. Your thoughts become things. So when you look in the mirror don’t say negative things like “you’re fat”, “you look horrible”, “you’ll never do anything important”. Start telling yourself a different story. Don’t limit yourself in your thoughts. Don’t take advice from people whose lives you would not want. They may be afraid or timid or negative, but you don’t have to listen to that.
When you have healthy thoughts, your behavior has to reflect that--It’s one thing to give yourself these positive thoughts and affirmations, but it’s another thing to actually act on them. You can dream up anything you want, but until you put behavior behind it, it’s just going to stay a dream.
Invest in yourself-- You should be investing time and money in yourself to get where you want to go. Learn new skills, take time to relax, make sure you are staying healthy--invest in yourself physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.
