“Here is the problem, most people are thinking about what they don’t want, and they are wondering why it shows up over and over again.” – John Assaraf
People tend to focus on the things that occur around them, work, stress, a diminishing bank account, whatever it may be and only look at it from the negative aspects. I myself have lay awake at night and run every situation in my head like a bad movie, over and over. I got tense; the neck would tighten and stomach turn. For what, to realize in the morning that it was a waste of time.
“The universe moves any idea toward you at the pace you move toward it” – Walter Russell
I am one of the millions of people who bought and read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I thought the message was great, and I practiced what they preached… thinking I want a million dollars, a new house and a new car. Hell, I wrote out the stupid fake cheque to myself that they had on their website. Guess what… still no million dollars. But that is the fault, because the thought was just too large for the Universe to provide. Accompany that with the fact that I did nothing to facilitate the act of receiving a million dollars. The Universe would not reward my positive thoughts if I just parked my ass on the couch and waited for the magic delivery. Break those large goals in to more manageable pieces, and the Universe can then deliver
There are those people who we all know who are in a constant state of negativity, which focus on all the things they perceive they could do… BUT. I would love to work out but I twisted my ankle when I was 6 (you are now 25), my knee hurts, I have a hang nail, my dog slept on my bed, etc. You get the idea. And it is those people who seem to always have the negative situations occur to them. Screw you Karma. Well, you asked for it with the focus on the negative thoughts.
Now it is not that we are all just full of negativity but we screw ourselves. Many singles say, “ I just want to meet a nice (guy/ girl) who is not a … well you get the idea. And the key problem is that there is still the connotation of negativity in the form of “who is not a …” We sabotage our own positive thought. Then once again we find that guy/ girl who is not a _______.
I know it wounds complicated, but don’t focus on the jobs you are getting passed up for, or the promotion you missed, or the money you should be making. Focus on the promotion you want, the job you want or the money (realistically) you would like to make. Then once again, make the necessary steps needed to allow the Universe to aid you, toward those goals. Remember, watch your thoughts for it becomes your destiny.
“You are what you think, having become what you thought”
