Day 6 of 28 Days of Gratitude

"How can it be that a person who is born into total poverty, starts out with nothing, and has very little education, goes on to become a president or celebrity, and builds an empire and becomes one of the wealthiest people in the world?"

Oh they're just lucky... they were discovered... they were in the right place at the right time... it was just meant to be for them... that could never happen to me. 

False.

We were born into this world with free will.  So why do some people struggle so much with the very basics of life, and others flourish effortlessly?  Some may say it's a mindset but it's so much deeper than that.

Think about when you're in the flow... ya wake up in a great mood, the birds are singing, the sun is shining down on you, everything seems to be going your way... and then you think "lol universe... everything is going perfect, what shit are you going to throw at me right now?"... and the universe does just that... throws shit your way.

Why?  

Whatever you focus on, grows.  Whatever you focus on, magnifies. That's how the law of attraction works. People hear the term law of attraction, and they think it's some woo woo new age shit that only works for a select few in the world, if it even works at all.  No.  The law of attraction works because you believe in it.  Even the most negative naysayers believe in it... I know they do... they practice it but just don't call it by the same term... it's called daydreaming, imagination... we all do it even when we don't realize what it is we're doing. Things I attract to myself in real life, are always a reflection of my thoughts. Try it.

How about when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? Chances are, you'll have a shitty rest of your day... everything will seem to go wrong. Think about that. Wake up with gratitude saying "thank you for waking me up"... and your brain, being already focused on gratitude, is going to amplify that.

Don't believe me?  Try it.

So for today, I'm expressing deep gratitude for the tasks I usually complete on autopilot... actually, let's be honest, I rarely have an autopilot day anymore because I am living life SO on purpose now that I don't even get into my car without saying "thank you", because there was a time I had no car, and I remember those days well... OK so back to today's tasks: dishes, making meals, changing diapers, showering, cleaning... Today, I'm going throughout my day as if I have someone keeping a tally on all of my thoughts.  If someone could hear the thoughts inside of your head, as if you're saying them out loud, would you still think the same?

Try it ;)
