It makes perfect sense when you think about how the Law of Attraction works; we create our lives through our thoughts, always attracting more of what we’re focused on. So if you’re locked into a pattern of always striving to be-do-have more, you’re setting yourself up to experience more of that feeling – a feeling of lack.
How can you sincerely feel grateful if you’re continually looking for ways things could be better? I’m not saying never have goals – I do believe we have to focus our thoughts beyond what we’re currently experiencing in order to grow and thrive. However, there’s a lot to be said for balance.
Goals have their place, but I feel we should expend at least as much energy in appreciating what we’ve already accomplished. Give yourself some credit! Celebrate those ‘small’ wins each day – look around at the positive aspects of your life, and pat yourself on the back! You created it all, good and bad – that’s just how the Law of Attraction works.
According to Abraham, the perfect balance is to be happy with where you are, as well as being excited for more. In my experience I find the 1st part often gets forgotten. In the excitement to be-do-have it all, that which we already have tends to pale by comparison.
I invite you to try an experiment with me. For the rest of the work week, let go of those pressing goals. Take a time out – revel in what you’ve already accomplished in all areas of your life. Relive those successes, savor them anew. That fresh perspective of success you already enjoy will go along way toward achieving those goals, because you’ll be projecting all those positive feelings into your future!
Let me know how this works for you!
Love & Light, Alexandria
