From Positive Thoughts, May 24, 2015
If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would
never think a defeatist or negative thought. Since we create
through thought, we need to concentrate very strongly on
positive thoughts. If you think you can’t do something, you
can’t. But if you think you can, you may be surprised to discover
that you can. It is important that our thoughts be constantly for
the best that could happen in a situation–for the
good things we would like to see happen.
There are many people out there who make the “Law of Attraction” out to be a super-simple quick fix for your life. I don’t believe that it is, because there are so many core issues that we face in life that we’re not going to be able to flip a switch one Thursday afternoon and have a completely different life from then on. And perhaps this perspective of mine also sabotages me in my efforts to have a more abundant life–I don’t know. What I do know is that we live in a world full of abundance, and it’s out there for us. If you’re on a computer right now and you have Internet access, you already have more abundance in your life than the vast majority of people who ever have lived on this planet. Whether or not you have more abundance does depend, for the most part, on you.
Fill your mind with positive thoughts and ideas, focus on the good and the beautiful, think about the lovely and the abundant, and those things will make their ways into your life. Love people, but recognize those who will bring you down; avoid giving them undue influence over you. Find the people who encourage and who show courage and compassion and love, and be with them as much as you can so that you can have more of such qualities in your life. Face your fears and deal with them, love people, and know what you truly want in life–and then do all that you can to make the good things happen. They will. Make your decisions and then make your efforts while focusing on the positive, and the positive will be a major part of your life.
