Whatever you think about the most manifests in your life.
And, when you think about what you don’t have, ironically, you actually attract and cause it to linger in your life. For example, I have a girl friend who once told me all the things she didn’t want in a relationship, and lo and behold several months later she ended up with a boyfriend who was everything she didn’t want. She couldn’t understand how that happened. I could.
Now, sometimes thinking about what you truly want and being grateful becomes a test of your heart, your confidence level and who you genuinely are. Approach this challenge as a positive growing experience. See it as an opportunity for you to do some important soul searching and exercising of your willpower and determination.
The thoughts you think are often a by-product of how you were raised, your circle of friends, your interests, and who you are today.
While it might be tough to remember to consciously change your thoughts, any new habit can be learned and easily assimilated into your life with consistent practice. You must strengthen your positive, grateful muscles and utilize them on a daily basis.
Like energy attracts like energy.
I also once read that whatever you have is what you can attract. For example, if you’re in love with yourself, you can attract another person who’ll fall in love with you. If you have money you can attract more (even if you have $5’s to your name, be grateful for that money, and more will come your way). If you dream of having more of something all you need to do is be happy and appreciative of what you do have and you can and will attract more.
