“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” – Henry David Thoreau
So you’ve seen The Secret, and it sounds so nice, you’ve even applied some of the things you saw there and discovered for yourself that “It’s not working”…now what? The Secret isn’t the do-all, end-all, instruction manual so many people have fashioned it to be. What it is, instead- is a call to action. It’s telling you that this wonderful force exists for those who master how to use it. If you think your life is going to be dramatically different based on your watching a 70 minute DVD, think again. What The Secret should have done for you was to pique your curiosity and send you on a search for how to hone your skills concerning this power, not give you a sense that you now can perform miracles when you haven’t even started on the task of controlling your dominant thoughts.
That’s not to say that you cannot get The Law of Attraction to work for you, it’s only that if we will fault the movie for anything, it’s that they haven’t described how difficult it is for most of us to control our emotions. It can be done, but it’s not easy to break habits we’ve had since birth. The good news is that it becomes easier and easier to do this once we practice it. So, let’s ask- what else besides this email series have you read or listened to or watched since you saw The Secret? Have you looked for books on The Law of Attraction? Have you earnestly begun on a self-improvement program of noticing when you feel “bad” and moving yourself into the state of mind where you feel “good” as quickly as possible without suppressing the negative emotions?
“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” – Jim Rohn
Begin the journey now by deciding what you want and then working to keep yourself in a positive state of mind as much as you can. The more you do it, the more you can do it. Keep thinking of the goal as achieved, clear as a bell, when you retire at night, and again in the morning as you arise. Be excited and be thankful for it.
What are the excuses you’ve been accepting thus far for failure from yourself? Get rid of them! Stop putting off change- make it happen now!
“Life has no limitations, except the ones you make.” – Les Brown
