I received a call today at 1:30 AM. My first thought, of course, "Who could this be?" I'm not accustomed to such early morning calls, but upon viewing the number, I realized it was a good friend.
He'd just finished watching "The Secret" -- an inspirational, 87 minute feature of interviews and dramatizations about unlocking one's success in love, money, happiness, and more via the "Law of Attraction". The "law" is quite simple: You attract what you think! So, if you're dwelling on the pain caused by a bad relationship, while focusing on the type of people you do not want due to experience, you'll continue to attract toxic people in your life.
Likewise, if you focus on what you desire and want in a loving and healthy relationship, you'll attract the right person. The same is true for everything else in life. The "Law of Attraction" and the "Secret" touch upon values and principles which are proven everyday. Just as my friend correlated experiences in his own life, I too was able to identify dozens of great moments of my own all thanks to the power of attraction via positive thinking. "The Secret" was introduced to me at the right time -- I really needed to see this.
I found the "The Secret" online at YouTube. Four parts (view: Part 1, 2, 3, and 4), approximately 22 minutes in length each. It was after three o'clock this morning when I finished watching this amazing special. I was humbled, saddened, and empowered all at the same time. The "secret" to everything in my own life was within. I now realize more than ever the next step I need to take to remove a lot of pain, frustration, and sadness from my life. I cannot dwell on my experiences of the last few months and years. I cannot dwell on decisions which cost me precious time, happiness, and money. I cannot dwell on the reality of our society and culture. I cannot dwell on many things which are beyond my grasp.
We are responsible for our own destiny. We choose the journey by owning what we desire, and allowing the path to be revealed to us as we travel it. We cannot worry about forces we are unable to inspire or encourage. We cannot worry about why we've been wronged by others. We cannot worry about our failures in life. We can only live for the moment. Right here, right now. We cannot fix the past, but we can certainly fix the future.
Remember the "Law of Attraction". You get whatever you think. Think positively. Think confidently. It's real. Embrace it.
