The basic premise behind the law of attraction claims that thoughts become things. When you begin to understand that your thoughts are the first step in creating your reality, you can watch your life evolve according to what you’ve been habitually thinking about. In the movie The Secret, it explains how thoughts become things.
If you can simply keep your thoughts on what you want, you’ll get what you want. In fact, you can’t get anything else. If you keep thinking about what you don’t want, you’ll get what you don’t want. The concept is so simple that it seems almost complex or not possible, but this is the way the world works.
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, FOCUS, AND ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
YOU’LL BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR EVERYTHING YOU THINK ABOUT
The Secret movie is basically a video documentary on how the law of attraction works. But I decided to write this article since this information is just so important for personal development. As you begin to digest the idea that thoughts become things, the concept can become overwhelming.
It basically means that you’ll be accountable for everything you think about and the more you think about something, in particular, the sooner you’ll notice that particular thing or event appearing in your life.
YOU CAN CHANGE ANY CIRCUMSTANCE IN YOUR LIFE
If thoughts become things, it means you can change almost any circumstance in your life. I say almost anything because there are some things you can’t change; for example, you can probably never be able to breathe underwater no matter how much you thought about it.
However, when it comes to external life situations, like attaining wealth even though you’ve always been poor, this is a situation that is entirely possible if you change your thoughts about wealth or becoming wealthy.
CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE
You’re thinking every day and, although your thoughts seem to wander and change constantly, this is just by habit. You can change your thoughts and by doing so you can change your life. If you think you have no way out to a better life, well that’s what you’ll get. If you think things are getting better and your life is improving, then that’s what’ll happen.
As you notice things getting better and you keep your thoughts focused on this, more and more positive events will come your way. Often people change their thinking habits to a more positive mindset. As they notice improvements occurring in their lives, they begin to say things like “this can’t last.” They can also start to go back to their old way of thinking and just wait for things to turn sour again. That’s just what happens as your thoughts become things.
MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK
When you hear about very successful people who seem to go through their lives and everything they touch turns to gold, you may think that they’re just very lucky.
Well, the truth is, it has nothing to do with luck and everything to do with what they think about, therefore once again thoughts become things. They make their own luck by only thinking about what they want. You’ll get what you think about, wanted or unwanted, so if you’ve been getting what you don’t want, you now know why.
When I first learned about the law of attraction, I intuitively understood that this idea must be true. I knew this from past experiences. Whenever I had gone through rough patches in my life, it’s always when I had been thinking negatively or felt unhappy.
The same thing went for happy periods in my life — when my thoughts were positive, good things happened. If you’re a regular reader of my personal development material on Over 40 Health and Fitness, this will be nothing new to you. But so many readers of this site email me and ask me how they can fix certain problems in their life.
The best answer I can give is to change your thoughts and you’ll change your life because of the simple fact that thoughts become things. I changed my thoughts and, as my life changed for the better, I kept expecting more good things to come my way. That’s exactly what has happened.
If I ever catch myself thinking negatively, I have a special word that automatically pops up in my mind and I refocus my thoughts on what I want. That special word can be anything. It’s just a trigger word to help you refocus and remember that your thoughts become things so you must concentrate on what things you want to create.
The more you become accustomed to refocusing, the more often you can expect your thoughts to remain habitually positive and you’ll bring positive events into your life.
