There are many times when we try to make a positive change towards improvement in our lives; however, what many of us do is start out with much zeal but we lose our steam and end up not achieving our desired goal. These failures can often be attributed to our tendencies of being creatures of habit. The law of attraction has been written about extensively and there are many people in the world who have had much success in manifesting their desires. On the other hand, there are just as many people who have failed when applying the principles of the LOA because they don’t run the race with endurance and end up quitting before their desires can be manifested into their lives.
I for one have to admit that I have found myself slipping back into my old habits and not applying the very methods that I write about on my blog. It can be very easy to do because we find idleness in being creatures of habit. Although we wish to make changes in our lives our ambitions hit that proverbial wall when the results we seek don’t happen fast enough. Consequently, we find ourselves slipping back into those daily mundane routines as well as our old ways of thinking. When I wrote Monitor Your Thoughts my main focus was to emphasize that we need to be constantly on the guard of how we think and feel. While this post is very similar, I want to stress that we have to be mindful that we don’t go back to our previous ways of thinking and doing. After all, it is these old habits that put us where we are today and that is exactly what we are trying to change. So how can we keep ourselves from going one step forward, then three steps back when it comes to the LOA? Like an athlete who runs a marathon, if we want it bad enough we have to run with endurance.
Have you ever met someone who is always in a great mood and is living life on their terms? You know those people who always seem to have everything going for them? I have run into a few of those individuals in my life and I used to believe they had that optimistic attitude because of what they already had. Perhaps I was wrong. What if these people had the attitude first and then attracted their wishes into their lives? Recently I was visiting a law of attraction blog called Deliberate Receiving and I read the about page to get some additional information about Melody, the author. From my perspective, she is one of those people that I mentioned above because of her attitude towards life. She has had much success with the Law of Attraction because she has a positive outlook and because, like Melody says, “Oh, and I’m happy. Really happy. Not a fake happy like a Stepford wife; more like a bouncy, Golden Retriever puppy (only housebroken).”
How can we be more like those people who are able to make the LOA work for them? It all comes down to maintaining that happy go lucky attitude and not regressing back to our old habitual ways of thinking. When we persevere with this positive attitude, in essence we will raise our vibrational energy and start attracting our desires. So if you have been using the law of attraction to manifest your desires, keep running the race with endurance, don’t fall prey to those old thoughts and feelings that got you where you are today. Don’t be a creature of habit, stay positive, stay focused, keep your eye on the end result, and believe me your intentions will soon manifest.
Special thanks to Melody of Deliberate Receiving whose blog has given me valuable insight on the law of attraction.
