Is it Time to Retrain Your Brain?
“There are only two ways to live your life: one is as if everything is a miracle, the other is as though nothing is a miracle.” –Albert Einstein
Which path do you choose?
When you understand that everything in life is a Miracle, gratitude naturally follows. As you know, gratitude is the first step toward abundance in all areas of your life. The Law of Attraction also tells us that “like attracts like”. We get more of what we focus on. When we live in a state of gratitude, we’re focusing on things we’re grateful for. It naturally follows that we attract more of the things we’re grateful for!
“But what if I’m not grateful for something that’s happening in my life?”
That’s a good question.
Perhaps you have a car that doesn’t run well, or that’s ugly, or that uses too much gas. How do you feel gratitude about that?
The first step is to think of the good things about your car. C’mon, you know it has a few good points! Let’s start with the fact that you have a car. Isn’t that something to feel grateful for? You could be walking or riding the bus after all! And there’s something else to feel grateful for, you are able to drive where you want to go!
You’ll discover, as you focus on the good things about your life, that you get more good things in your life! It’s a positive-reinforcement loop!
Focus on the good things. Get more good things!
This might take some practice. You have to retrain your brain. That might sound daunting, but it’s actually easy. The trick is to redirect your thoughts when you notice you’re thinking about things “you don’t like” or things “you don’t want”. Thought Redirection simply means start thinking about something different.
For example, if you discover you’re thinking, “I hate paying so much for gas!” immediately change that thought to, “I’m so glad I was able to put gas in my car!” Or, better yet, “I’m so grateful I have a car to drive!”
As you do this more and more, you’ll start reprogramming your Subconscious Mind too. And that’s when the real changes happen!
Perhaps this sounds silly to you. That’s ok. You might choose to give it a try anyway.
After all, what have you got to lose?
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
