A few years ago a book was released called “The Secret.” It spawned a movie by the same name.
The underlining premise was to think about what you wanted and you would receive. However, the missing ingredient was that you must also “do.”
The notion behind “The Secret” was based on the laws of attraction. It claimed that the projection of your underlying thoughts can influence and determine future or present events.
The book uses the term “universe” to embody what we cannot quantify, what we are project our thoughts onto and what we deliver or how we determine our outcomes.
While quantum physics is only starting to quantify how changes in molecular structure at the sub atomic level can influence surrounding elements, we can still apply this theory to something that we can comprehend and understand.
It’s all very well to say: “One day I want to be rich or win the lottery” and expect that the next day that your numbers come up. What you really need to change is your underlying thought patterns. You must reprogram yourself for success.
It’s all about the thoughts that you project on an ongoing basis, whether at a conscious or subconscious level. Once thought of as hippie mumbo-jumbo, the idea is slowly gaining acceptance and momentum in the mainstream.
Lately, the business world has starting applying the term “the universe” to business processes.
Even motivational speakers like Anthony Robbins are saying it’s all very well to gain information – we must still act upon it.
We can believe in abundance, or that there are adequate resources in the universe for everyone to receive everything they want. Yet, if we don’t take the necessary steps to tap into abundance it will elude us.
So, to “do” is to focus on all the positive stuff and to create a foundation that predisposes you to all the good things happening. Unfortunately, there’s no silver bullet that will miraculously change your life. Rather, you should pursue a positive reinforcement of your thoughts and actions over days, weeks, months or even years.
It’s about all the experiences we have on the way to achieving our goals. The necessary potholes on the road to success only make our achievement all the sweeter.
