To many people who are new to Law of Attraction teachings, the notion that we control the quality of our life (read, create our own destiny) by the nature of our thoughts may seem ludicrous. But. Ludicrous is what the masses thought regarding the idea of manned flight…until the Wright Brothers were carried aloft at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17, 1903. Orville and Wilbur Wright obviously knew a thing or two, but especially this: You will never fly by continuously reminding yourself of all the reasons why you can’t!
Let’s set some ground work regarding the Law of Attraction: We are attracting to ourselves–by the nature and intensity of our thoughts and feelings–the situations and experiences of our life. Accept this as fact. Negative thoughts create negative outcomes; positive thoughts create positive outcomes. The logic works as follows: Thoughts lead to feelings; feelings to actions; actions to habits; and habits to results. So how can we apply the Wright Brothers’ spirit of invention and adventure to our lives?
We may gain more understanding by examining our own thinking. Imagine, if you will, that you’re doing your best to learn a new skill. Let’s say that you’re learning how to drive. On that first day as you sit behind the wheel, everything seems new; perhaps frighteningly so. You’ve been taught that you should check your mirrors this often; accelerate at just the right time; brake with varying degrees of pressure depending on the nature of the situation. All of the information may seem overwhelming. But…
Here’s the good news: If you were once in this very situation–of learning how to drive–you instinctively realize the importance of watching your thoughts. You know that thinking I can do this ultimately helps you earn your driver’s licence, and perhaps your own car after that. That thought pattern–of desire linked with a positive mind set–is of utmost importance in reaching our goals! If we catch our mind attempting to drive us–instead of being the mental vehicle that we control–it is imperative that we take control again. The mind is our vehicle, and we are its driver!
Want to experience greater success in your degree of health, wealth, career, and relationships? Then come fly with me to a higher altitude! Allow yourself to be carried aloft in the same manner that Orville and Wilbur did–by the strength of your convictions to do so! Your goals matter, and so do you! From a higher perspective–and a better attitude–the world is going to look much different!
Dare to dream (and care for one another).
