If you have seen the movie "The Secret" you know that thoughts become things. It's all in the Law of Attraction. However, that having been said, Barbara hits the nail on the head when she refers to "acts." For, without action, ideas stay nothing more than dreams. And you also know that in changing the way you look at things does, indeed, change the way things look. So, by changing your thoughts you can change an unpleasant reality, (her words), into something good.

Last night I spent some time with two sales professionals, old acquaintances of mine, in an attempt to get them to have a look at something which has so excited me that I wanted to share it. Neither was in the least receptive.
Well, chalk up another one in what should be classed as "failure". And for a part of the evening it felt that way. However, as our conversation turned to other things, I soon overcame my negative thoughts and feelings. We caught up on "old times", discussed and compared some of our favourite things, and generally had a great time together.
Temporary detour? Sure seems that way.

She was quite shocked when I said, "No!" And she was visibly upset when I asked her if she believed that she had the power to decide where God could, or could not, go. She said that I obviously did not understand, but that she respected my view. Therefore, why could I not respect hers?
Of course, she was correct. I did not understand. I guess I never will. Sigh...

Wallace D. Wattles, in his book, "The Science of Getting Rich" said basically the same thing.
This surely is the first step to all advancement. It is a mindset one needs to cultivate in order to grow and expand. We are either growing or dying. Take your pick!

Just how true that is you will never know until you have been in that place. There was a time in my life when I considered that it was not worth going on. It is only by accident that I am here today, and I thank God that I am. As a result of that experience I have vowed to never again give up in that "moment of truth". I am determined to hold on at all costs. I wonder if I would have heeded Stowe's advice had I heard it in advance of that moment. I really wonder...

I believe that everyone is "born rich." I believe that it is through our conditioning that we have ended where we are today. Whether that conditioning came from our parents, our siblings, or society at large, I believe that we are truly products of that. Of course, once that is recognized and as one takes responsibility for one's life that can all be changed.
I do believe that riches are here for us, and that one needs only to receive them. Of course the trick is to know how to receive them. As Esther Hicks, (Ask And It Is Given), says, there are three steps involved. Step one is to ask. Step two is that the Universe answers, every time, no exceptions. But the big step is step three, the receiving. If you haven't read her book, do so. It is an eye opener!

Upon reflection it seems to me that this statement describes nothing less than the biblical Garden Of Eden which humankind seems to have rejected! To think that it is possible to return to that Garden is an exciting proposition indeed! If we all have the right to be rich, where have we gone astray? Why are we not all rich? And, if I have that right, how can I get there? I think that these are questions each of us, in our own way, has to answer.

Again I am reminded of Wayne Dyer's statement, "The way you look at things changes the way things look." There are times when I find it difficult to look at some of the things I see on television, or read in the newspapers, and see anything but the ugly. But there is truth in the age-old addage, "For every cloud there is a silver lining." Although it sometimes seems impossible to see, I do honestly believe there is, indeed, a good side to everything. It's all in the way one looks at it.

I think that there is always a better life ahead. Just look at how far we have progressed in the past one hundred years! The promise of a better life is a fact, we only need to believe it, and to work towards its accomplishment.

"Crowd out all inferior thoughts by superior thoughts, evil thoughts by good thoughts, ugly thoughts by beautiful thoughts, distressing thoughts by pleasant thoughts, and you will begin to overcome the growth of all negative and confused states of wrong and discord. In other words, learn to think constructively of all persons, all things, all events, and all circumstances. Appraise them from the ideal point of view. As you do this you will gradually transform your whole existence for the better. These are the means whereby you may steadily promote your welfare and advancement.
As you train yourself to mentally look for the good, you will move towards the good; and, as you form higher and larger conceptions of the good, these elements will begin to find expression in your words, acts, character, person, talents, powers, attainments, and achievements; that is, all things in your life will commence to improve as the direct result of your improved thinking."
I try to do this all the time, but I find myself so often sliding back into the thought patterns imbedded in my mind by the many years of living on this planet. I know that the more I concentrate my thinking to a new pattern the easier it will become, but there are times...
I think Dr. Wayne W. Dyer said it so well. "The way you look at things changes the way things look."
I try. I really do.
I have discovered "The Secret"!
It has changed my life!
