Law of Cause and Effect
Different people begin success where others end in failure
How the law of cause and effect relates to you is: you are like a magnet that will attract to you that which is consistent with your feelings/emotions/attitude.
When you are at the lowest of possible emotions, when you have the worst possible attitude – fear, anxiety, depression, powerlessness and despair – you attract to you circumstances and events which support you in being fearful, anxious, depressed, etc. I doubt you’d call this a formula for success.
Here’s a pretty common attitude at work: blaming, criticizing, condemning, judging, and thinking badly of. Know people that do this? Do you do it? If yes, guess what you’ll get?
The attitudes which will literally guarantee your success are love, gratitude, appreciation, thankfulness, joy, bliss, excitement, enthusiasm, passion and the like. Why? Because you will attract to you and your company, events and circumstances to support you in experiencing gratitude, appreciation, thankfulness, etc.
And here’s the most important point of all. What are those things? Where do they come from? Well they are neither the circumstances of life nor do they come from those circumstances. All of those things are attitudes.
They come ONLY from you. They need to be generated.
In so many ways, we live in an upside down world. We are so programmed to believe that we get our attitude, our feelings, and our general sense of whom we are and how our life is from the circumstances of life. It just isn’t true.
Circumstances are just circumstances. They don’t inherently mean anything. You can be incredibly poor and truly happy or fabulously rich and miserable. How you choose to interpret the circumstances of life makes all the difference in the world. And now I hope you see how critical that choice is to your success.
