I realized this morning that for about a year now I have been reading and watching mostly negative things about the events around the world and that
the future is not looking any better than the reality we live in today. Some days I feel like nothing good is going my way, and it makes my day really
depressing. But some days I stumble upon some good news and it makes my day fun. I guess that is how I came across The Law of Attraction. The negative
things led me to it ? It's really confusing isn't it?
This law of attraction thing sounds like nothing more than positive thinking, and the ability to find good in every situation we run into on a daily
basis. But apparently there are people that take this thing too seriously and begin to believe that there is no need to worry about anything at all,
I met one of them yesterday. Multiple website teach this Law of Attraction theory by telling people to stop accepting reality completely and start
living in an imaginary world. As if [You didn't really loose your job, or you didn't really loose your house, or you really don't have that life
Anyway I figured out that this “law” is somewhat true, but People Please don't think that it's a fact of life that you can imagine things into or
out of you life. You need to see a doctor if something is bothering you, You need to look for a job if you are unemployed and can't afford to buy food
for yourself and your family. If you can't make those payments you will loose those things regardless of what you imagine. Use this 'Law' responsibly.
Think positive about your job interview, think positive that you will get healthy if you treat your symptoms.
I realized that I got confused about my own reality and as much as I wish everything was perfect unfortunately it is not. Wishing will not pay my
bills. Maybe the Universe is really our source of all things, but I can't find the door to that abundance as of yet. I decided that I will find that
door and I will see that it's true. I'm gonna use the Law of Attraction to understand that Law of Attraction. also very confusing, i know.
Many people are in trouble one way or another, I'm one if them. But everything is going to work out for me and you.
Just do something about it,
Here's more confusing [or maybe not confusing at all, I don't know yet] quotes --
Cease negative mental chattering. If you think a thing is impossible, you'll make it impossible. Pessimism blunts the tools you need to succeed.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a
pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.
The ill effects of thought come about when we forget that thought is a function of our consciousness.. an ability that we as human beings have. We are
the producers of our own thinking.
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.
The kind of commitment I find among the best performers across virtually every field is a single-minded passion for what they do, an unwavering desire
for excellence in the way they think and the way they work. Genuine confidence is what launches you out of bed in the morning, and through your day
with a spring in your step.
Traditional thinking is all about "what is" Future thinking will also need to be about what can be.
Edward de Bono
Lateral thinking is concerned not with playing with the existing pieces but with seeking to change those very pieces. It is concerned with the
perception part of thinking. This is where we organise the external world into the pieces we can then ‘process’.
Edward de Bono
Complacency with our traditional judgement based thinking methods is not enough. Our existing thinking habits are excellent just as the rear wheel of
a motor car is excellent but not enough. We need to put far more emphasis on creative and design thinking. Judgement and analysis are not enough.
Edward de Bono
If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your
empoyees will be greedy, giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.
Love is the biggest eraser there is. Love erases even the deepest imprinting because love goes deeper then anything. If you childhood imprinting was
very strong, and you keep saying: "It's their fault. I can't change," you stay stuck.
Explain to people that everything they say is an affirmation. Everything they think is an affirmation. Everything! What you want to do is to get
control of what you are saying and thinking, so these things bring you good experiences in life rather than rotten experiences.
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of
purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.
Because I'm thinking in a broader way, I feel like I am able to make better decisions.
We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
College totally changed my life. It changed what I believe and what I think about everything. I majored in philosophy.
Always think outside the box and embrace opportunities that appear, wherever they might be.
We both (He and Warren Buffett) insist on a lot of time being available almost every day to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American
business. We read and think. So Warren and I do more reading and thinking and less doing than most people in business. We do that because we like that
kind of a life.
Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival, but that's exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking.
I found that when you start thinking and saying what you really want then your mind automatically shifts and pulls you in that direction. And
sometimes it can be that simple, just a little twist in vocabulary that illustrates your attitude and philosophy.
Your mind is an instrument, a tool. It is there to be used for a specific task, and when the task is completed, you lay it down. As it is, I would say
about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much
of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy.
Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you
think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.
A major stimulant to creative thinking is focused questions. There is something about a well-worded question that often penetrates to the heart of the
matter and triggers new ideas and insights.
The worst things in history have happened when people stop thinking for themselves, especially when they allow themselves to be influenced by negative
people. That’s what gives rise to dictators. Avoid that at all costs. Stop it first on a personal level, and you will have contributed to world
sanity as well as your own.
I like thinking big. If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.
We think about all of our tomorrows, but we don't know how many there are, so let's start making the most of our Todays!
It's not just the emotional, intellectual, and physical gaps between you and money. The real gap is always between what you think you want and what
you actually want, deep down.
Each moment of our life, we either invoke or destroy our dreams. We call upon it to become a fact, or we cancel our previous instructions.
Positive things happen to positive people.
When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities.
To me every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.
Whatever qualities the rich may have, they can be acquired by anyone with the tenacity to become rich. The key, I think, is confidence. Confidence and
an unshakable belief it can be done and that you are the one to do it.
Leaders need to be optimists. Their vision is beyond the present.
Miracles never cease to amaze me. I expect them, but their consistent arrival is always delightful to experience.
Mark Victor Hansen
I dreamed impossible dreams. And the dreams turned out beyond anything I could possibly imagine. You know, from my point of view, I'm the luckiest cat
on the planet.
You stay in touch with the boy who dreamed impossible dreams.
I'm an optimist. I've always believed the future is going to be better than the past. And I also believe I have a role in that. The great thing about
human beings, myself in particular, is that I can change. I can do better. If you can get up every day, stay optimistic, and believe the future is
better than the past, those few things get you through a lot of tough times.
If I regarded my life from the point of view of the pessimist, I should be undone. I should seek in vain for the light that does not visit my eyes and
the music that does not ring in my ears. I should beg night and day and never be satisfied. I should sit apart in awful solitude, a prey to fear and
despair. But since I consider it a duty to myself and to others to be happy, I escape a misery worse than any physical deprivation.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline
when you're not yet a winner.
Turks have a dismissive phrase: he works like a clerk. I have turned this insult around: I am proud to say that I work like a clerk.
You don't have to be the biggest to beat the biggest.
An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An enterprising person is one who
drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development. An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity in all areas of
Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.
J. K. Rowling
An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while the pessimist sees only the red stoplight. The truly wise person is colorblind.
