Want More from Life? Get Positive!

If you’re like 90 percent of the population, you have a tendency to blame some friend that seems “have it out” for you. It feels like they’re deliberately trying to hold you back, or at the very least, trying to sabotage your success. So you sit there feeling angry, frustrated, deflated or maybe even slightly depressed.

You’re probably talking about how nothing ever goes right. You’re probably hanging out with other people who are constantly talking about it too and I would be willing to be that you’re probably even talking about it on Facebook and Twitter!

And as you continue to talk about and focus on all the bad stuff that’s happening, you’re attracting the people that are also talking about it!

Now you’re probably thinking that if you could just get rid of this friend, your life would be so much better – right? But even if you were able to move far, FAR away from this friend, let’s say to another part of the world, another one will take her place almost immediately!

Why? Because the Law of Attraction states “That which is alike unto itself is drawn”. In other words, you will keep attracting people that are a vibrational match to you.

Listen, you can’t rid yourself of all the negative things in the world but what you CAN do is focus your attention on the things that make you feel good. And once you start to feel good, the people, places and events that you used to attract will magically disappear and new, more positive things will begin to show up.

If you only learn one thing from this, let it be this…. Stop beating the drum of what makes you feel bad and start deliberately and intentionally focusing on the things that make you feel good. Start thinking, wouldn’t it be nice “if”, instead of wouldn’t it be terrible “if”. Start looking for things in the past, present and future that make you feel good….Finish reading on

I had a lot of negative situations when I was younger. One of the things I'm grateful for is that those situations are OVER. I hold enormous gratitude now.

It's a pedestrian, I found I did less running around. I always seemed a little less hectic than others around me, even though it took me twice as long to go anywhere. But I enjoyed the trips, maybe others didn't. I've never been rich financially, but I have also never been "poor", despite making the same amount as people who feel they are. Basically, I find that when I believe I have something, that usually follows. I have tended to lose sight of a lot of good in my life as a result of so much "bad" happening, but I've always bounced back. Sometimes it is a struggle to remain positive, but it's a struggle well worth it!

A positive attitude is not always the easiest to hold at times, but can go a long way to achieving a lot of things.
