Attracting what you want in life can be as easy as 1, 2, 3…as long as you understand the Law of Attraction and you know what it is you want and don’t want.
You know that person, the one who tells the same story all the time about all of the terrible relationships they have had, how they always seem to attract the wrong kind of person and, no matter how much they focus on how they don’t what that kind of person in their life, they just seem to attract them anyway? And when they talk about the rest of what is going on in their life, it seems their personal life just spills over into that part as well. Right?
Some of us allow ourselves to get sucked into the story. Some of us want nothing to do with that story and get out of Dodge! But when we are around and listening to them, have you noticed that some of their “bad vibe” seems to rub off on you?
Have you ever said to yourself after one of these sessions with “that person” (or maybe you are that person) that you just want it all to stop?
The Law of Attraction is very agreeable. If it were a person, I would say it is a very agreeable fellow, but it is not. It is a LAW of a very abundant Universe that is only geared to give you that upon which you place your focus. Good, bad or indifferent, what you focus your attention on is exactly what it sees, hears and attracts.
So, as you can probably see, mindset is a very important part of attracting what you want. And mindset is a product of belief and belief is a product of how you have perceived everything you have experienced in life. For example, what do you think a person believes about him/herself when they have been told “No” or “Your not good enough” or “You won’t succeed” more than they have been told the opposite? That’s right, they are more likely than not believe that they are not capable, not smart, will never amount to anything. That is their mindset. It becomes like a default setting when they try to do more. It even results in some negative self-talk about their chances of survival.
On the other hand, what do you think the the mindset is of the person who has been encouraged, told “yes they can if they try” and like things? Do you think their default setting is a little different when they approach something new?
There is a wonderfully descriptive and helpful book out there titled “Mindset” that I encourage you to read. It really goes into a great deal of depth on this subject. You can order it from Amazon or in any brick and mortar book store. I’ll have it available on my recommended reading tab as well.
So, now we know that one’s mindset is important. Why? because it affects how one approaches everything in life. And knowing that the Law of Attraction is a very agreeable fellow, we know that to which we give our focus is generally what will be attracted to us.
This is actually a good thing, this knowing our mindset (how we approach things). I say this because knowledge can create change. If we are aware of how we are thinking about things, we can simply change our thought patterns, which change the kind of focus we give which results in that very agreeable fellow’s attraction of like things. In other words, we (YOU) have the ability to determine what we attract in our lives. Once we (YOU) control that, life can become very good, indeed.
So here’s a secret: Recognize how you feel about things when you think about them. If what you are focusing on is not something that you like, turn your attention to what it would be like to have something that you do like. Why? Because focusing on how lousy it feels to have or do “X” is communicating to that very agreeable fellow something to which you are giving a great deal of attention. The result? If that is what you are focusing your attention on, it must be something that you want. Otherwise you would not be giving it so much attention. On the other hand, if you acknowledge that thought as not being very pleasant and then turn your attention to something that is very agreeable, guess what that very agreeable fellow perceives as you wanting to attract. That’s right, that which is on your mind, to what you are giving your attention.
Let’s end this with an experiment. Think of something that wold bring you a great deal of joy. See it in your mind’s eye. See yourself enjoying it. Then see how real you can make it in your imagination. Think about how it feels to have it. Think about all of the wonderful things about it that make it so attractive to you. Why you want it, what it feels like. do that for a minute and see how it effects our outlook and then watch to see if things that lead you to that which gives you joy show up in your life.
