Are you happy?
Reflect on that for a minute.
If tomorrow, everything you had, everything you are, was taken away and your life was over, would you be okay with that? Would you truly believe that you had lived life on your terms?
Today we are going deep.
We have to. If you wish you were doing something else, if you have been putting off that project, that dream, that goal, then right now is the time to change that. This is your push, because you need to explain why you aren’t doing what you love, what makes you happy.
There is a truth of reality that can help you start right now getting where you need to be. This is a truth I have believed in, and followed, for a long time now. Once I started believing in this concept my life changed because I went from thinking about all the reasons I was failing and started focusing on finding ways to succeed.
The Law of Attraction
This universal truth regarding the law of attraction separates those that win, and those that spend their days just getting by. The concept goes by many names and variations. Visualization. Fake it until you make it. Prioritizing. Goal setting. Here is the idea:
If you continue to do what you have always done then you will continue to get what you have always got.
Unhappy in your relationship and want something different? Unhappy at your job? Overweight or feeling weak instead of strong? Want to own your own business? Want to start a blog?
Change what you are doing. Sounds simple. It is. Do not over complicate this. Do not think too much. You will overthink this, and your mind will prevent you from making change. Just remember the concept and speak the above to yourself when you need a boost to do something new. Then, with the mindset of success… do it.
The law of attraction ensures that what you focus on, you get. Most people buy in to this idea at some point in their lives, but then give up before things come to fruition. The length of time required to achieve our goals is always underestimated.
If you do not have the patience to prevail for years, then what you are trying to do is not a calling or a passion.
Patience is paramount to success. Do not expect to change your actions and then have your life change overnight. How long did your current life take to build? You might not have even thought about this, but your life was built over years, not days. Your actions over a very long time period put you on the path you’re currently on. Changing your path will also take a very long time. Years. If you do not have the patience to prevail for years then what you are trying to do is not a calling or a passion. What you seek is a passing fad. Let it pass and continue searching for your true vision.
Putting the Law of Attraction to Work
Implementation of this universal truth is easy. Think about the things in your life that make you unhappy. This could be values or traits you embrace, your actions, how you make a living, or your habits. What about your life do you wish was different?
Now, stop wishing and start doing. Momentum built over time compounds; pacing is important in everything- life, relationships, goals. I know you are excited, but there is no need to jump in with both feet right now. Take things slow. Nothing kills momentum faster than burnout, which results from going too fast and too hard then not seeing the intended results immediately.
Do not get discouraged when your new visions take longer than you want to accomplish. This is a long game. Avoid discouragement by celebrating the small victories, and the incremental forward movements towards your vision. Always remember, the law of attraction ensures that what you focus on you get. Focus well.
