The Law of

you get told that certain things are unattainable, not worth it, not
acceptable, or you're not good enough for?

worked; it was a bad experience."
Since our childhood, we
have been continually bombarded with variations of "no",
"stop that", "don't", and "you can't".
Our conscious mind has been conditioned to accept that we can't do
things or that we have no choices. Unfortunately, our subconscious accepts as fact
what the conscious mind believes. And, we (subconsciously) act
according to this belief.
Think about that again.
Anything your conscious mind believes, your subconscious accepts as
fact. This is NOT AN OBSTACLE. It's AN ADVANTAGE! You only have to
substitute those negative thoughts with positive ones and you can
accomplish anything you want. This is the law of substitution*.
How? Practice this consciously:
1. DETERMINE THE
OUTCOME. What good feelings will come out of attaining what you want?
2. AFFIRM THAT YOU
DESERVE IT. It's a good choice. It's for me.
3. At every possible
opportunity, ACT AS IF YOU HAVE ALREADY ACHIEVED IT.
Let's try this with
losing weight. Step 1 - I'm happy to wake up each morning
feeling healthy, perky, and fit. My friends admire my
determination to stay fit. Step 2 - This is for me. It's my year!
Everyone supports me. Step 3 - I already lost 15 lbs. That
cake looks good but, because, I am health-conscious, I know I can skip that. In
fact, I ignore desserts places on my walk to work.
Try this with anything
you want to achieve. And then observe. You, your mind and body, will
subconsciously work towards attaining it. Ideas will come. Key persons
and important events will cross your path or become attracted to you,
or you to them. Your "mental radar" will adjust to seek them
or notice them. Your responses and actions will be congruent with
These are not
accidents. It is your SUBCONSCIOUS AT WORK. Even when you are not
thinking about it, you really are thinking about it. You are
generating ideas, forming plans, developing solutions, deciding,
acting, and establishing connections consistent with what you chose to
achieve. Even while asleep.
Not yet convinced? Let
these experts tell you:
"Don't just think of your goals. Think from your goals."
"There are no limitations to the mind except those we
"You're not just what you think you are. What you think, you
What have you told
yourself lately that you cannot do? That you can't find a better job?
That you can't fix that hole in the wall? That you cannot be
organized? That you can't be wealthy? That you can't stop
smoking? Think again.
CHOOSE THE OUTCOME. You deserve it.
Just believe it!
