There have been a ton of books and videos on making your dreams come true and living the life you want. While some of the things I have read are rubbish, they do contain some valid points. After hearing all about the book and movie The Secret, I decided to get the dvd version and watch it. I had some friends come over and we made it into an event after the kids left for school one morning. I was really excited about seeing it and discovering what the secret to having the life you want was. After the movie, I maintained my excitement and began creating my own dream board. I placed it in an area in my home where I would see it everyday.
Now being in my business, it is sometimes hard to maintain the excitement I need to maintain to have a good day. Things happen in real life, like my kids fighting with one another, my washer not working and having to drag my clothes to the laundromat, my freezer freezing up on my with ice covering every morsel of food in there. When everyone is off to school and I am in my home office trying to start my day, believe it or not all I have to do is really sit and look at my “dream board” for a couple seconds. If I want those things on my dream board to become reality it is up to me to make that happen. I get on the phone and start doing my business keeping myself motivated. Does that motivation come from only the dream board and from the Secret dvd I had watched the other day? Maybe. The drive to make things happen that I want in my life comes from within me. If there is something that you really want, if you really focus on it, you can and will make it happen.
Did you ever have one of those days that starts off bad and just keeps getting worse? Well it is quite possible that you stay focused on that bad thing that happened to you and for some strange reason other things that are less then desirable continue happening to you throughout the day. This is what they talk about in the dvd The Secret.
Whatever the reason from my own personal experience, when I motivate myself and feel good about things during the day, more good comes from it. When I start the day off by saying, I got out of the bed on the wrong side, the day is reflected in that sentiment. My point is, we all have the ability to manifest the things we want in our lives. Nothing falls into our lap, we have to make those things happen for ourselves.
Try being positive throughout the day and see what happens. I know that every minute of everyday we cannot focus on always being positive, but try this trick. Get an elastic band and put it around your wrist, when you find yourself in a negative thought, pull that elastic band and let it snap on your wrist. Use that snap as a reminder to change your thought pattern and make it more positive. Studies have shown that by by doing this, within 30 days of using this method, your thought pattern can will change.
If you try this method, please let us know how it works for you.
