Are you tired? Has life had the last laugh at every pivotal point? Are you disgruntled at your job, in your relationships, with the state of the world? Now more than ever the opportunity to be the person you have always wanted to be is manifesting all around you.
The thing keeping you from where you want to be is mindset. Here is a simple trick on how to change your life and create your ideal reality:
Change your mind, Change your life.
Yup. That’s it. No long elaborated bullets points or top 5 hacks. Simply, Change your mind, change your life.
At this point It should be no secret that I am a fan of Jay Z and Kanye West. These two billionaires that I identify with on multiple levels are pinnacles of success for me. As such, they have become my “mentors”.
Jay Z and Kanye introduced me into the world of manifestation. Over the course of this pandemic, I have engaged in thought therapy and have put myself in alignment with the life that I want.
What does that mean you ask?
It means that I learned how to stop fighting against life, and against myself. I have become a co-creator of my life and not just someone along for the ride.
This starts with your mindset. Are your thoughts in alignment with your situation or your desires?
Our desires are unrelenting. When you know what you want – you know what you want. Our circumstances however, are on a constant swivel. The strength of one’s mindset is in how tenaciously it clings to one’s desires, and not their circumstance.
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is described as:
The ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on.
It is the idea that we are what we think.
Many people including myself, have been applying the law of attraction but just not in a way that yields the results that we want. The Bible says that life and death is in the power of the tongue. I use to speak very negatively over myself, friends and family, romantic relationships, my career path, and more.
What we do not realize is that what get’s repeated gets remembered, and what get’s remembered gets done. There was no fruit in those areas of my life because I kept telling myself subconsciously that I was not worthy of my desires.
Effective application of the law of attraction looks like shifting your subconscious and allowing your expectations to create our reality.
In other words, once I shifted my focus from my circumstance to my desires, I put myself in the path of what I really want.
The Law of Vibration
Everything has its own vibrational frequency. Everything around us is in constant motion. Even stationary objects are at constant motion vibrating at higher frequencies.
Since everything vibrates, including humans, we are essentially frequency conductors. We attract to us whatever frequency we are on.
Have you ever wanted something so bad, and one day the right opportunity came along seemingly out of no where? What you were doing was raising your vibrations to be in alignment with that thing you wanted.
Statistically, 42% of people are more likely to complete their goals when they write them down. This is a pragmatic practice of manifestation. When you get on the same vibrational frequency of what you want, you put yourself in a position for it to actually manifest.
An Attractive Mindset
Our biggest obstacle is our mind, and our Achilles heel is our confirmation bias. If we can learn to think better, we become better.
The challenge with thinking better is it requires us to change how we think about what we think.
That thing that you think about when you are not thinking must change; because that is what determines the trajectory of your life.
Our subconscious drives us, and our confirmation bias is the GPS. As humans we are always looking for things to affirm what we already believe.
The simplest example of this is, if you have ever wanted a certain type of care before, then all of the sudden you start seeing that same car all around your neighborhood. This happens because your mind looks for things in and around your life that affirm what you believe.
In the same way, our confirmation bias can allow negative thoughts to perpetuate in our mind. Every day we shape our reality because we naturally gravitate towards – attract to ourselves what we already believe.
Can you Believe Better?
The real question is, can you believe better?
The answer is yes, but it takes effort. The draw back to believing in something, is that there will always be opposition. What we choose to focus on should be set with clear intentions. You need to know what you want as if it is already yours.
If we can be resolute in what we believe the opposition does not matter, because we are focused, and that thing that we are focused on is being affirmed in our lives every single day.
Your circumstance may tell you that you cannot have what you want. But what you believe must be truer than what you see or hear. You cannot allow the noise of the world to drown out your desires.
