Happiness eludes most people because they spend the majority of their waking hours thinking about what they don’t want. You can replace that self-defeating habit by living consciously.
Most people know exactly what they don’t want in life better than they know what they do want.
You always and only get what you think about most of the day.
I hear you saying that you state your affirmations and look at your vision boards every morning and every night.
Twice daily, for a few moments each time, you focus on and ask for what you want.
But what do you think about the rest of the day?
Do you feel happy, sad or indifferent the rest of the day and night?
IF you are like most people you spend minimal time with your affirmations then spend the rest of the time thinking about what you fear.
For example, a health fanatic spends hours thinking about what he or she eats and doing the right exercises. He or she eats organic food, pays attention to the assortment of meals and snacks and how much food gets eaten raw vs. cooked.
That person may be addicted to working out on a regular schedule performing carefully chosen routines.
The thing is, that person makes all those seemingly good and healthy choices to avoid getting sick, out of shape, weak or fat. Maybe that person thinks he or she will not be popular or successful unless he or she looks a certain way.
His or her thought process focuses on not getting sick or fat rather than focusing on gaining and maintaining health. He or she focuses on fear.
What you focus on expands in your life.
Over time the health fanatic moves toward being unhealthy without understanding how such a possibility can even exist for him or her.
Remember the quote, “What you fear shall come upon you.”
