The Principle of Attraction
Almost everyone is familiar with the notion of a self-fulfilling prophecy, right? But maybe slightly less familiar is the Principle of Attraction. They’re two sides to the same coin; we can say the former is somewhat passive—it just sort of happens. But the latter is active—it’s about you deciding what you want, and believing you can have it, and expecting that you WILL have it.
What is the Principle of Attraction?
It is backed by ideas of cognitive reframing (shifting our thinking to better our attitudes), creative visualization, and positive thoughts. Using the Principle of Attraction people tend to have more success in their careers, better interpersonal relationships, improved health, higher salaries and better jobs.
Whatever it is that’s most often on your mind is what you create the conditions for in real life. If you dwell on positive ideas, you’ll create positive interactions an situations. If you dwell on negative ideas, you’re likely to manifest negative conditions.
The mind is a powerful thing—we are all utilizing the Principle of Attraction all the time, whether we realize it or not. Realizing it allows us to fine-tune it. Fine-tuning it allows us to step into some pretty transformative power—transformative power that allows us to transform our lives.
