Your Happiness, Your Success, and the Law of Attraction. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be discussing Your Happiness, Your Success, and the Law of Attraction. Although we are still in the Pandemic, the UK is easing its Lockdown next week. Some of us will return to work, reopen our businesses, and focus on something else. So I thought it would be a great idea to share this post. Maybe it will be something for you to think about as we move on with our lives.
Your Happiness, Your Success, and the Law of Attraction
What have you been focusing on lately?
How well is life going for you? Or on how much business you’ve been doing compared to last year. Or how well your superiors have been rating you? How much your partner loves you, and how much do you revel in your relationship? On the excellent state of your bank account? On your ever-present good health and slim and trim physique? Or on the joy you experience each time you sit down to dinner with your teenage children? On the beautiful vacation you came back from recently and the even more exciting one you plan for the near future? Or, in a good way, do you feel about yourself and all the things you are creating and doing with your life?
What You Think is What You Are
I can hear you spluttering.
“What kind of romantic thinking is this?
Where do these ideas come from?
I don’t know anybody who thinks like that.”
True. Most people don’t think like that. Most people believe the exact opposite of that.
People concentrate on all the things that are going wrong with their lives. Most people spend much of their time thinking about their problems and wondering how they will solve them. Some people think about all the things that could go wrong with their lives or about the people or events that stand in the way of their success. Some people believe and think about whatever worries them because they think that that is how to resolve it. The fact is that most people focus so much on what they are afraid of, or what bothers them, or what stresses them, or what they don’t know how to solve, that they are giving all or most of their conscious and subconscious energy to a negative outcome – the problem.
What Kind of an Outcome Do You Want?
Consider this: the more you give your energy to one thing, the more that thing has a possibility of coming into being. If you concentrate on getting a university degree, you will most likely achieve that goal. If you focus on writing a book, you will probably accomplish that goal again. But what happens if you continually tell yourself, while you are concentrating on getting the degree, that you are not intelligent enough to pass the exams or are incapable of understanding the course material? And what happens if you continually tell yourself while you are concentrating on writing the book that you will never be able to write well or that your story is not good enough? You are not only undermining yourself and sabotaging your desired outcomes, but you may also be creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Focus and Intention
So what can you do? Let’s assume you are convinced that you lack the intelligence to pass the exams. Or that you are confident that you will never write well. You have a goal, and that goal is to get a degree or to write a book. To focus on that goal, your mission is to ensure that your thoughts are aligned with – or intentionally concentrate on – that goal. Therefore, whenever your thoughts stray from the plan into negative territory, you need to pull them back into the arena of positive results.
Goals and Fears
But focusing on the desired goal is very hard for a straightforward reason. We are far too used to focusing on the fears surrounding the plan. I am so afraid I will never have a great relationship. Rather than imagining the significant relationship in your mind’s eye in the way you want it to be. Or how will I ever get that promotion rather than imagining how you will feel when you get the hoped-for promotion in your mind.
How to Focus
So how do you focus? When you worry, and your mind goes around and around a problem or some stress in your life, you focus on the situation. It is precisely at that moment that you need to re-focus and see your desired goal or outcome in your mind’s eye, rather than all the problems you associate with it.
The more time you spend on whatever it is you want to have in your life – whether this is a material goal, a professional goal, a relational goal, or whatever – makes absolutely no difference, the more you will be in a position to achieve it, to attract it into your life. The more you think – and focus – on that goal positively, the more you allow yourself to “feel” the way you would feel if you already had the results, the more likely it is that you will attain your desired outcome. This is the Law of Attraction.
Intentionally Re-focus on the Positive
Remember: the time you spend worrying about the desired outcome is spent focusing on the opposite of what you want, so become very aware of all your thoughts and focus them in the right direction. Do this consistently each time you catch yourself thinking the negative version of your goals until intentionally re-focusing on the positive becomes second nature. This habit is like strengthening a muscle if you do it every day. It will happen more and more frequently and naturally. Soon you will find that not only do the majority of your thoughts and feelings focus on the positive direction of your goals but that those positive goals become part of your reality.
I hope you enjoyed that.
