Are the things you want in life eluding you? Do you find yourself struggling to achieve your dreams? Have you wondered why it’s so hard to be happy?
If you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction, you know the answer to those questions. (That is, you know your thoughts dictate your experiences.) If you’re not familiar with it, no worries. You’re about to learn a super simple technique for getting what you want, every time.
Without going into tremendous detail as to how this works, know you’re the script writer of your life. You direct everything that happens to you – good, bad and ugly. You’re responsible for every encounter, situation, and result you experience. Most of us just don’t realize it.
Your thoughts create your life, and by directing your thoughts deliberately, you can create what you want. Yes, it’s that simple.
If it’s that simple, you ask, why aren’t we all dripping in money, basking in love, and living happily ever after? Well, some of us are. If you know any truly happy people, you’ll notice that they have a few things in common.
Happy people think about what they want. They give attention to the outcome they desire. They see the best in things. They’re deliberate about what they imagine, think, and fantasize about. And they expect to get it.
Call them positive thinkers, optimists, Pollyanna’s, pie-in-the-sky daydreamers – whatever you want. They’ve mastered the art of expecting the best. They believe they can have what they want. They expect it, and their brain gives lots of air time to it.
That’s the secret to getting what you want: giving attention to it! Simple, yes. Easy, mm … maybe, maybe not. Most of us get stuck observing the “reality” around us, which doesn’t help us gain ground on our dream come true.
But here’s a technique that will make it easier to control your thoughts, thus controlling your results. For novices and experts alike, this technique works wonders in keeping your attention on what you want (which is how you get it).
Imagine your life is a movie, and you’ve written the script. You choose the cast of characters, and you direct the scenes. When you find yourself in a scene that isn’t so lovely, remember how your movie ends. Remember the happy finale you want in this movie of your life, and imagine that scene unfolding.
If it’s a new job you want, and you’re struggling to make headway, remember how this movie ends. Stop worrying about how you’re going to make this happen and jump to the final scenes where you see yourself in the new job, chatting with new colleagues, eating lunch with new clients, depositing fabulous paychecks. Give attention to the ending of your movie, not these scenes leading up where it looks “iffy.”
It’s when we get caught up in these middle scenes, with all the drama and trauma, that our attention is hooked on things going wrong. And things will go wrong until we get our attention off what we’re worried about and back on what we want.
So remember how your movie ends when you get a rejection letter, or when you think you’re flubbing the interview, or when they say they have no openings. It can be a tricky thing because we’re addicted to the “reality” around us, but keep your thoughts on the happy ending.
Although it’s easy to get caught up in the dark scenes of our movie/life, if you remember how your movie ends, your dreams will come true. You’re writing the script; you choose the ending. It’s all up to you! And you can get through these ugly scenes simply by remembering your beautiful ending.
The next time you or someone you love complains about what’s going wrong, ask how the movie ends. It’s a great trigger to remember to focus on what you want, not on what is.
