Despite what you believe or don’t believe, I know one thing is for sure-the universe WANTS to help us all. I’ve done enough self-help book reading, self-reflecting, and research to understand that one thing. And coming from a cynical, sarcastic, ‘The world hates me’ kind of girl (I’m working on that part), that is saying a lot.
The law of attraction is a pretty simple concept to grab a hold of: you think positive thoughts, positive things will come to you. However, if you continue thinking your ‘everything is against me’ negative thoughts, well nothing is going to change.
This may sound like a bunch of bs to you, as it did to me at first. But then I realized something, it works. Yes, it does require some work from you, yes it does mean that you need to work on your negative attitude, but no I am not telling you that you need to think of rainbows and unicorns every hour of the day. The Law of Attraction is something that I’ve made room for in my life, and although it took a lot for me to cut some of my negativity out-in the end (and still right at this moment) it feels SO much better to have a more positive outlook on things. So why not give it a try?
You will bring the things you want into your life.
By simply putting out to the universe that you really want that new job because, you’ve worked hard for it and you deserve it, that right job will come along. It may not come the second you want it, or the exact company you thought of, but The universe works in funny ways so it just may be that the one they let fall in your lap is 10x better.
You will feel your world shifting into a more positive place.
If you sit around all day telling yourself you are not good enough, everyone hates your work, etc. etc., that is the kind of world you are going to attract. Plain and simple. However, by using the Law of Attraction in a positive way and switching those statements to something like ‘I am doing my absolute best’, the universe is going to give you a little pat on the back, and help you out. In that way, your entire world is going feel a lot lighter and happier.
You will not only attract new things in your life, but new people as well.
The people around you (whether it be strangers or your friends) are going to start to notice the new and improved you. You’re going to attract those relationships you want- the one’s that have substance and meaning, not the one night stands and passing friendships.
Once a day, take a moment to yourself and say ONE, just one positive thing. Whether it be about yourself physically, mentally, or about something that you’re working your ass off to get. Then let the universe do the rest of the work for you, because whether you believe it or not, something or someone out there has your back. And obviously, not everyday is going to be perfect. Some days negative thoughts get the best of us and it’s hard to remember why you should stay so positive. Some days it will feel like nothing is going your way, and you want to just give up. Don’t give up. Let yourself feel like shit for a minute or two, and then keep pushing. We’re all so caught up in self-hate and negativity (I’m at fault too), but there are so many ways to change that. The Law of Attraction (if you use it positively) is there to help you out, so let it.
