The way we think determines the way we feel about our lives. If we constantly keep listing the things we don’t want, we attract more of them. Why? Because of the way the law of attraction works. The more you focus your energy on something, the more you have of that thing. But, in most cases, we focus on what we don’t want. How do you stay motivated, if you only focus on the negative?
We need to understand that when it comes to attracting things, the universe doesn’t recognize negation. You keep focusing on it, so that’s what you will get. The universe will even ‘think’ that it helped you get what you wanted. Except it didn’t. So, why not help the universe by being specific?
Sure, you were specific enough when you said ‘I don’t want more debt’, or ‘I want to lose weight’, but what kind of energy did you send out? Let’s try this another way, shall we? What happens if we say something positive instead, like ‘I want to be healthier’ or ‘I want to be prosperous’. There is a huge difference here.
But changing our negative attitude into something positive isn’t enough. It’s just the first step we need to take in order to change our lives for the better. The second step is probably even harder and scarier than this one was.
How many times did you reminisce about the past, having this idea of ‘what if’, or ‘could have been’? We tend to live in the past, regretting our decisions, or wishing we did things differently. But why worry about it if we can’t change what happened? We can’t go back in time and erase the past, we can only use it as a stepping stone.
