What Do You Give Your Energy To?

Are you positive or negative? What do you give your energy to?Are you positive or negative?

I had a boss at a previous job. He’s a great guy but he’s very passionate about the things he doesn’t like. You can’t be sure of what he likes, but if you see his posts on Facebook it is easy to see what he doesn’t like because he rages against them.

He isn’t so much pro-conservative as he is anti-liberal. He might be pro-peace, but he’s definitely anti-war.

Do you get what I mean?

He didn’t make it to his anger management class because the traffic ticked him off on the way there.

Can You Really Fail Your Way to Success?

Many gurus tell you than you can fail your way to success. Is that really possible?I see quotes on Facebook all the time about how you can fail your way to success. They have become very popular, but I really don’t understand why.

If you set out to build a house, and you fail at it over and over, how does that get you a house to live in?

How to Get In the Flow

When you are in the flow ideas and inspiration come to you easily. Things just seem to work. Want to know how to get in the flow?Do you know what it means to be “in the flow?” Life feels easy when things start working, when the ideas and inspirations are just flowing.

You need to know how to get in the flow so things do start going right again.

Do You Read Self-Help Books or Collect Shelf-Help Books?

Do you, like me, buy many more self-help books than you actually read? Turn them from SHELF-help back into SELF-help.Do you know the difference between self-help books and shelf-help books?

Do you spend a lot of money on self-help books that you then never read? That’s shelf-help. I don’t remember who I heard say that originally, but I really like it. You buy a self-help book and give it to the shelf. It’s now shelf-help. If you don’t read the book then it certainly isn’t going help you.

I’ve spent a lot on shelf-help in the past. Now I’m dusting them off and turning them back into self-help books.

How to Make Time to Read

Reading is vital to expand your mind and grow your skills. You need to know how to make time to read.It’s hard to find time to read, either for fun or for personal development. I don’t know about you, but I especially wanted to find more time for personal development reading, but how? There are so many other things that you have to do during the day. Where can you possibly fit in something else? You need to know how to make time to read.

I know that was true for me. I’m a full-time stay-at-home dad and I homeschool my kids. That means that I am responsible for most of the cleaning and cooking as well as being the teacher for my kids.

I also have an internet marketing business. That requires time to write blog posts, update pages, and promote my posts on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

There are only so many hours in a day. Where can you find time for reading and study?

What’s Wrong with Conspiracy Theories?

Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, right? So, from a law of attraction view, what's wrong with conspiracy theories?Do you love a good conspiracy theory? I sure do. They can certainly make for a great story, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. FBI special agents Mulder and Scully chased aliens every week in The X-Files TV show. Conspiracy Theory, the movie with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts, was another good one. With all of that attention, what’s wrong with conspiracy theories?

I want to look at them from the Law of Attraction and see why conspiracy theories are harmful when you buy into them too strongly. Continue reading

Being Content versus Being Happy

It is much better to be happy and work for a better future than to be content with things as they are now.Last week I wrote about how important it is that we use positive language along with our positive intent. It’s great to talk about success but if the energy of the actual words are on failure, the intent for success is defeated. This week I’m going to continue to look at how we use language. A very specific case this time, “content” as in “I am content with where I am” versus “happy.”

Whatever You Think About is What You Attract

Bob Proctor - Whatever you think about you will attract into your life.I wrote a post a little over a year ago about how your language will show you what you are attracting. For example, while you may affirm “I am debt free” you will likely not achieve that because the focus word in what you are saying is “debt,” so you will probably continue to attract debt. I want to spend some more time on this topic today.

I spend a fair amount of time on Facebook and I love to share positive, inspiring quotes. For example, Bob Proctor shared one of his quotes on Facebook this morning:

The Best Way to Do It Is to Get Started Now

The best time to get started is right now.Has this ever happened to you? I have two people who have said that they want to work with me, but they have to wait until after this is done or that happens first.

The first person, let’s call him Dave, came to me last summer and said he wanted to start building his online business after Labor Day. Labor Day came and went, but he said he still wants to get started after things settle down in October. November arrived and he still says he wants to do it but he has to wait until after the New Year. At that point any expectation that he was actually going to do anything pretty much went out the window because I know how busy he is from January through April.

The Logical Song: Is Being Logical Always a Good Thing?

Supertramp released The Logical Song in 1979I love listening to music while I’m doing other things, like working or driving. Music can tell stories, it can make you feel, and sometimes it can make you think. I was driving my family to my in-laws’ house this week and heard The Logical Song by Supertramp and was inspired to write about it.

The Logical Song was released on Supertramp’s album Breakfast in America in March 1979. It was also their biggest hit. The song was mostly written by Roger Hodgson about his experience of being sent away to boarding school when he was young. I think it applies to all of us, whether we went to a boarding school or just the regular public school in town.

Are People Judgmental or Just Have Low Self-Esteem

When we judge others it may be because of our own low self esteemI listened to a program by Caroline Myss on Self Esteem recently. One of the many things she talked about was how our judgments of others can be because of our own low self esteem. That got me thinking about how judgmental we can be, and the real reasons for our judgments of other people.

Most, if not all, people have low self esteem issues around some aspect of their lives. Body image and level of success are two of the biggest ones that I see most often, with body image being number one by far. We think we are too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, too dark skinned, too pale, the list goes on and on. Judging ourselves that way is bad enough because we are all beautiful and perfect in our own way.

Have You Seen The Abundance Factor Movie Yet?

The Abundance Factor MovieThe Abundance Factor movie was released on Sept 8, 2015.

Did you see The Secret when it came out? That was almost 10 years ago. Talk of the Law of Attraction and abundance have become very common since the Spring of 1996 but I think for most people it is still very much in the talk and concept phase.

I see The Abundance Factor as the next step toward bringing all of that talk closer to a reality. For me, the Abundance Factor movie is the sequel to The Secret that I heard promised but never saw delivered. It was not made by the same people and is not affiliated with that older movie.

Hypnosis MP3 vs. Subliminal MP3

Subliminal MP3 and Hypnosis MP3Hypnosis MP3s and subliminal MP3s are two popular audio technologies for personal development. Both technologies try to get past the conscious mind to speak directly to the subconscious mind to create a positive change in your habits and/or in your thinking. Which do you think is better?

What is a Hypnosis MP3?

You probably already have an idea of what hypnosis is. The first thing that a hypnotist will do is get you very relaxed, just short of falling asleep. They need you to be awake so that you can still interact with them on a level. You’ve probably seen the stage hypnotist with their shiny object swinging it back and forth in front of their subject and telling them that their eyes are getting heavy.

Language Is Important

How to Attract What You Want - Language is ImportantVisiting family for the holidays is great. I enjoy seeing and talking with people that I don’t see or talk to very often. I do have one challenge with it though – negative language. People, especially the older generations, like to talk about how busy they are. They like to talk about the bad news they heard on the TV or read in the newspaper. They like to talk about being sick and about dying. Is their any question about what they are actively attracting?

I have been studying the Law of Attraction material for several years. You attract the things and experiences that you are in alignment with, and nothing shows the world what you are in alignment with, and therefore attracting, than what you say.
