If you can believe it, you can achieve it.
Have you ever heard that saying?
If you think hard enough about something and experience it in terms of emotions, it will manifest itself. This is the basic tenant of the Law of Attraction. If you visualize something and experience it in your mind, it will happen.
Visualization is an interesting concept and one that I use in my current Steak and Eggs eBook. There have been a few studies conducted on the subject and even a documentary called ‘The Secret” made on it.
From a practical standpoint, I think the concept deserves some merit. I’m experimenting with The Gabriel Method and 50% of this weight loss strategy uses visualization.
Think about how a bad experience can set the tone for a bad day.
Let’s say you go to bed upset and angry. You toss and turn. You have trouble sleeping. The next morning your alarm goes off and you are so tired that you shut it off. Now you’ve overslept. You wake up with barely enough time to get ready. Already upset from the night before and now late for work, you stumble out of bed and stub your toe. Now you are really pissed.
This is a lot of negativity. From here, you’ve set the tone for the rest of your day and will most likely react negatively to every other situation that comes your way. Again this could be considered cause and effect.
Negative cause equals negative effect.
I guess my point here is don’t be negative. You know the sayings:
“Look on the bright side of things.”
“Every cloud has a silver lining.”
I think there is real power in thinking positively about things and looking for the good.
Do I think that we can exert some type of control over the universe and can make anything we “dream up” appear before us?
The short answer is no. That would be magic and I don’t believe in that stuff.
It is interesting though that most magical things like voodoo are based on the power of suggestion. I do believe you can make yourself sick just by thinking about it. Why couldn’t you think yourself well?
Let’s do an experiment together. I am visualizing everyone who is reading this post is clicking this —-> link and donating a $1.00.
I’ll do a follow up post in a month and let you know how many people donated.
