I used to be someone who thought that the law of attraction was a bunch of higgledy-piggledy made-up stuff, but when I started to learn more about positive thinking and I saw the positive effect it was having on my everyday mood, I started to realise that there is actually some sense in the law of attraction.
I think that the judgment towards people who believe in the law of attraction comes from people thinking that they can skip steps. For example, people used to say things to me about picturing a car that you want and how that would somehow give me more of a chance of one day having that car. But let’s face it, no matter how positive your thoughts are, that’s simply not how life works. I personally feel that the magic of positive thinking and the correlation with the law of attraction is hidden in everyday simplicities.
There’s a quote that I love that says ‘Your brain constructs your reality’ and when you really think about it, I bet you’ll find that this is true! A great example of this is how when you own a certain car, you realise that so many other people have the exact same car as you but really, loads of people already had that car before you did, you just never paid attention to it before you had it too. The same applies to positivity and negativity. I’m sure you’ve noticed that life likes to kick you when you’re down? When something happens and it affects your mood negatively, it’s very common for a bad thing to happen straight afterward. Vice versa, if you practice gratitude regularly and remind yourself to pay attention to all the good things in your life no matter how little, you’ll probably find so many more things to be grateful for, new and old. That is accidental law of attraction. Positive thinking simply makes you realise all the other positive things in your life that you never even realised were there, therefore making you happier. The happier you are, the better chance you have of achieving things that you want because you’re in the right frame of mind. Whereas if you constantly focus on the negative, you’ll find so many more things to moan about.
So next time you’re feeling down in the dumps, take some time to reflect on your attitude as of late and whether a negative outlook on life, in general, is partly to blame for your low mood. Then, make a conscious effort to be more positive and grateful and then further reflect on the benefits you have found. The chances of reaching success will be much higher if you have a positive mindset. Make one of your resolutions 2020 to be more positive!
