“Reflect upon your blessings, of which every man has plenty, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” -- Charles Dickens
This is just another way of saying what you focus on you will get.
Every thought to me is a big “prayer” (if I may) to your creator. And the results you have in your life are the sum total of all your thoughts you have thought.
Many people say, well, how can I focus on the positive stuff when all I have in my life is negative stuff?
You create the habit of it. You have all the negative stuff because you have been focusing on all the negative stuff. You have formed the habit of focusing on the negative stuff.
So now, you must form the habit of focusing on the positive stuff. Just like you did for the negative stuff.
Did you get the movie The Secret yet? It will give you a step by step guide of how to do exactly this. I am telling you. This movie is one that I would recommend for anyone who doesn’t have exactly what they want. It will teach you the fundamental principle you must do in order to get what you want.
You may have to learn more knowledge and get more training, etc. But with out this, even if you do the “doing” that needs to be done, you will not keep it because your thoughts will not be in line with what you truly want.
