Have You Ever Heard This Before?

Think success.

Think, I will succeed.

Don’t think failure.

Remind yourself as often as you can, you are better than what you are.

Think Big-small ideas only produce small results.

The key is to believe. Believe it can be done. And when you believe, your mind will find ways to make it happen.

The Law of Attraction is Condmening

What Law of Attraction Experts keep telling you, is that, the results you produce (or do not produce) is due to the quality of your thoughts.

If you have poor health? If you have little education or training? Too young? Too old? Lack opportunities? Experience a run of tragedies one after the other? You are shamed by groups who call themselves Spiritual, Spiritualists or New Agers.

You are the culprit.

You are the one to blame.

You are only making excuses, excuses and excuses.

You are shamed, out rightly.

There is no way that one can ever say you brought it on, when you walk out of the doctor’s office with a diagnosis that you have terminal brain cancer; or you have the crippling death diagnosis of multiple sclerosis to look forward to. Or, you lose your child to a train accident. How could anyone shame you and blame you that you caused your cancer or that you caused the train to run over your child because you of the thoughts you were thinking?

Life is Uncertain and Largely Out of Our Control

There are people who are blocked or held back by others who have an overwhelming amount of resources to apply.

There are children born into families that work so hard yet make so little money or time to attend to their children’s emotional or educational needs, that they fall through the cracks. The family can’t afford the money to spend and nurture connections and relationships and thereby removing the potential for opportunities to come their way through the hand up by others. The only results that can be produced in this kind of environment is more hopelessness and grey hued landscapes with no or little sunshine.

I am one for both stability and variety in life.

I get anxious without certainty but guess what, there really isn’t certainty.

The Universe can be a random and chaotic when she chooses to be or when you accidentally get thrown off course and cross one of her chaotic or disruptive ley lines. Leaving you either puzzled, overwhelmed, paralysed or broken. And when such feelings and experiences are prolonged for some time, it makes you want to seek safety and certainty 110% of the time. So, guess what? No risk taking tends to take place.

The Seduction of Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction seduces you into believing that magic can happen and this is especially attractive when you have no or little resources available. It makes you believe you can turn things around or that you can make something out of nothing.

The Law of Attraction gives you hope that you finally have a chance to leave this grey landscape and enter the fields of sunny Sunflowers.

Secrets and magic appeal to the little child within all of us. It brings back our childhood where we were still had a life to be fulfilled. Opportunities were unseen but felt to be galore. Anything was possible!

I was more at peace (and I presume offered a more peaceful presence) when I was practising the Law of Attraction. But finally, after too many knocks by life, and too many losses you start to accept your imposed limitations and work within your confines for better or worse. But don’t despair. There are ways to manage this limiting situation.


But Law of Attraction On a Budget, is Doable

I agree.

How you speak to yourself can influence you and the actions you take (or don’t take).

For instance, have you ever found that when you spend a prolonged amount of time with a stranger, friend or work colleague who is petty, and highly judgemental, it does begin to erode your level of hope and optimism to yourself and others.

It’s also the same for when you act like the petty tyrant with yourself. That is, when you focus on unnecessary petty things and you judge yourself in a harsh light, rather than a generous way.

The only thing you succeed at, is chiselling away at your internal enthusiasm and any big ideas you have.

People who are motivated and going places affects you just as a person who believes they are a very unlucky schlep. Wouldn’t you prefer to be infected by someone (or something) that turns up your speed dial on enthusiasm and desire to do well or to do a job well done?

Just like our bodies need physical sunshine to sustain our natural Vitamin D levels, so our soul needs emotional and mental sunshine in order to thrive. If your landscape is grey and cloudy, it is time to stand away and discover a new group or different stimulating activities.

I agree, it is reasonable to say how we think is reflected in how we act.

To me, Law of Attraction on a budget, means what we have to make our attitudes our allies and not our foes because a divided house whether outside or inside, implodes and falls to a crumpled heap. Leaving you with no structure or protection.

To Choose to Be Open to Possibilities Does Allow You to Notice Opportunities that You Otherwise May Have Been Blinded To.

A social experiment was performed between people who believed they were lucky and were surrounded with life opportunities versus those people who people who felt unlucky or that life was what it was and there would be no opportunities to improve their lot in life.

There were three parts to this social experiment. For ease sake I will refer to the first part of the social experiment. Here, cash money was placed onto the pathway the human guinea pig had to walk. The cash money was place in a obvious yet no so obvious place. This experiment illustrated, that those people who shared an inner expectation that life was full of opportunities, spotted the money placed on the ground. Whereas, those that shared the expectation that there were no opportunities in life would just walk by the flagrant placement of the money on the ground before them.

6 Free Tools You Have, To Accepting and Moving Beyond Your Daily Grey Landscape to A Sunshine Landscape

1. Start to notice the little everyday things that add to how you feel or how it adds value to your day to be.

It can be as quick and simple as noticing how your day is shaping up to be. You look out of your window or step out of your front door to acknowledge the gentle breeze that is kissing your face. Or, you make a point of noting how beautiful and bold the blue sky is. Just prime yourself up to thinking what wonderful things (small or big) can happen to you today.

2. Practice shifting your focus on what is working (rather than what isn’t working). When you drift and focus on the small details, swiftly pull yourself up and switch your mind back to what is working for you right.

3. Believe again good things can happen. Practice being expectant that something wonderful can come bursting around the corner.

This one, though, can be a long-term challenge. You may go through a long-life cycle where things have been challenging and relentlessly challenging for a long, long period. Just remind yourself life is about cycles. New cycles must begin, just as cycles must close and finish up. Its just a matter of persevering until its time. You can get through. You can do it.

4. What if you approached your life as a lifelong social experiment? What if your role could be that of a would be scientist who is testing out their own life hypothesises? Wouldn’t that bring back mystery and serendipity? Wouldn’t that bring back a spicy intrigue? Think about it.

Along the way, practice not underestimating your own brand of intelligence and don’t overestimate the intelligence of others. Use this approach to hold up your dignity when its hard to do so. More importantly, don’t use this way to prove you will fall, okay?

5. Grow your world through growing the words you use. For instance, instead of saying to yourself, “I have a problem to deal with”. Instead rephrase it to,“ I have a challenge to face and overcome”.

Along the way, please don’t withhold compliments from others. Give credit where credit is due. Sure, some people may get a swell head and be arrogant for a while. But just imagine the number of people who have never been acknowledged let alone congratulated for doing a job well done. That small kind act of giving credit where credit is due could end up causing big things to happen on the other side of the world. Just imagine that, and imagine that you will have been responsible for such a wonderful contribution (100th Monkey Pattern)

6. This one I need to put into practice more.

Being generous again by freely adding extra value.

See where or when you can add value to others and to yourself. With yourself? Ask yourself, “how can I make myself more valuable today?

In Conclusion

A. Think how or where you could improve the life of another. If you start to do this you will all of a sudden see where or how you can improve your own life. Here you are thinking small and big, simultaneously

B. Be open and willing to do the best you can do on that day at that point in time. You couldn’t ask anything more of yourself if you can take on this approach. Your dignity and goodness will be retained. Never let yourself be tricked into anyone making assumptions about you, or thinking anything less of you.

Wellness, Happiness and Prosperity to You

      I have been practising law of attraction. If nothing else, it helps me in staying positive and upbeat.

      I think this way will do us much good.

      Not easy but it is workable. Peace to You, Katrina.

      I've been practicing this. Small things pop up after a wish or desire for it. Love it I practice positive thoughts. Positive emotions. Avoiding negativity in news and television helps. Also staying away from drama. It feels really good. Life is sweeter

      I don't see you "throwing something" at me. Its more you are interested in giving your honest feedback whether it agrees or disagrees with the writer of the article. And that is a good thing, as far as I am concerned. Peace to You Elijah.

      If we could speak to every person on the planet we would probably learn of nearly 8 billion different approaches to life.

      We do what we can to meet our life. When our life changes, we need to find ways to meet it. Maybe such ways stay the same. Then, again maybe our ways change. Who knows until it happens. If you found something useful here, I am glad, Eric.

      Hello K S Lane.(smile) First time meet. I am happy you found something intersting here for you. I look foward to reading your articles. Happy writing!

      I get what you are saying, Threekeys, but don't know how to reply except "overall, you hit the nail on the head."

      Concerning "you can make something out of nothing" I must say "nothing" can not exist. The word "nothing" means "there are things which does not exist" but when you give them the nomenclature of "nothing" it was brought into existence. LOL I can't pass up the opportunity to throw some thing at you.

      I enjoyed and understand what you are suggesting, thanks.

      This is a really interesting concept. The idea that 'self-talk' and your attitude directly influences your actions is complicated, especially because if you turn it the other way around a lot of your thoughts and attitudes stem from, as you mentioned, your situation in life. I like your idea of the law of attraction 'on a budget;' it seems like a good way to live your life. Great Hub!
