We all want to have more good things happen in our lives so I thought this month I would share how we can be an integral part of this. I have discovered (unfortunately the hard way, many decades ago) that when I harboured on negativity, I would attract lots of problems and issues. It wasn’t until I read many books on personal and spiritual development, that I began to realise that there is a life law that “we attract what we think about most of the time”. I found that when I began to put a more concerted effort into thinking positively most of the time, I would begin to attract more good things in my life. WOW I thought – is it really possible that I could create my own “heaven on earth” experience? Well, it was close. Whilst there are still problems and issues at times in my life, the frequency is now much less and the recovery from those negative events is much quicker since I have been focussing more and more on the positive in the situation or the positive outcome I desire from the situation.
I read an incredible wisdom once that said along the lines, to focus your mind on “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about these things”. That is quite an incredible level to attain to when you think about it, however what actually happens when you “tap into” this level of thinking, is you begin to notice more of what you just thought about (which was good) and you begin to attract and claim more of what is positive and constructive in your life.
You see, there are always good things happening around us and in our lives – we just need to notice them. The RAS (Reticular Activating System) of our mind needs to be switched on by us focussing ourselves on what is good. What we focus on we see. And what we see we begin to attract more of. And when we see the positive we attract, we begin to strengthen this way of thinking. Then it becomes a habit because we know what the benefits are so we create new patterns in our brain. This is the essence of “neuroplasticity”. We all have this capability to create a better world for ourselves and for others in our environment.
I have the privilege of coaching and mentoring a number of clients privately and one of the key outcomes of each coaching and mentoring session is to help them change the way they look at things. I know that if they change the way they look at things, for example, their work, their business, their partner, their finances, their life, then the things that they look at will begin to change. And they will attract better things in life. If you want to know more about our coaching and mentoring program, click here to visit our website.
Here’s an exercise worth doing. For the next 30 days, do an exercise I get my coaching and mentoring clients to do called “The 30 Day Mental Fast”, click here to download the form. Be extra careful everyday to keep all negative thoughts out of your consciousness. It will initially be quite difficult however after about 7-10 days you will notice it will get easier and you will notice yourself thinking and feeling differently. You will begin taking your thoughts to the next level. If for any reason, you indulge in negativity (that is you catch yourself spending unnecessarily long time on a negative thought, such as longer than 2 minutes) then you start the 30 day mental fast again from the beginning! Check the exercise out and email me if you have any queries.
