Last week at the end of his first session, my client asked me this question:
“What do you think about the concept of the Law of Attraction?”
Never one to miss an opportunity to answer a question with my own, I asked
“What do YOU think about The Law of Attraction?”
“Well, he said “I don’t know if I really believe it. Come on, how can you just think about something and then have it happen? I thought about a new SUV yesterday and when I woke up, it wasn’t sitting in my driveway.”
For a moment I wondered what he really wanted to know. Did he truly want my opinion? Usually my clients ask me questions because they want to find out if we are in agreement.
I asked him if he wanted the long or the short answer. He said he had a few minutes before he had to get back to work, but was curious about my take on the subject.
“The long answer is that if the Law of Attraction is about only wishing for what you want, then I think it’s a big hoax. You thought about the car, and if wishing was all that you needed, then you would have seen the car in your driveway, wouldn’t you?
I do know that when you change your thoughts and focus on what you want, things begin to change. Your attitude will change. Your behavior will change. You will notice more opportunities and more possibilities. Your actions will change.
As a result, you move in the direction of what you want in your life.”
The short answer is, that when you change your thoughts, then anything is possible.”
As he stood up and put his jacket on he smiled and said,
“I like the idea that I can change my thoughts and affect my life.”
If someone tells you that all you need to do is to wish and you’ll attract what you want, then turn the other way. The truth is that only when you take responsibility for your thoughts and learn to shift your focus, your life will change.
Because when your thoughts change, your beliefs, attitudes, behaviors, and ultimately your actions will change.
You can wish all you want, but if there is no action, well, you’ll just be stuck in wishing mode.
