I hope… I wish… If only… These words often have a tinge of despair attached to them. They are said very positively while all too often thinking “but it’s not likely to happen anytime soon for me.” Have you heard the saying “You are what you think.”? The rest of that Buddha quote is “And with your thoughts you make the world.” This is pure Law of Attraction. You get what you focus on.
Recently I was on a shuttle to the airport with two men I didn’t know. One was very concerned he was going to miss his flight as he was running late. I told him to be positive, to know he would make the flight. He agreed and then said “but just in case, I’ll get my confirmation pulled up on my phone to re-book.” The other man and I laughed and told him he wasn’t being positive. Being positive means eliminating the doubt; not giving room for the “in case”, “what if” or “probably not” to slip in and settle in your thoughts. When the doubt creeps in, it defeats the positive outcome you want. Then when the positive doesn’t materialize, you acknowledge it with the thought “I knew it wouldn’t really happen.” Be honest, you were thinking that all along.
I challenge you to a week, a day, an hour of positive, supportive thoughts and words. Silence the negative, silence the doubt. Be aware how often you allow the words you think and say to sabotage you, rather than support you!
