We all have that one person in our lives who always seems to be wrapped up in drama right? The “drama queen or king.” They think that the world is out to get them, but refuse to take ownership of the part that they are playing in the drama.
Many people fail to see how they are drawing negative people, experiences and situations into their lives by their own words, thoughts and actions.
For example, when you have low self-esteem you draw other low self-esteem people around you OR people who want to take advantage of you at your low point.
When you believe that everyone is out to get you and you’re always ready for a fight, you’re eventually going to get exactly what you’re asking for.
Constantly talking about lack, being broke and penny pinching draws more money struggles into your life.
Even something as simple as the types of songs you feed your mind daily can attract things or people to you. Listening to lyrics that constantly degrade women could draw people into your life who are disrespectful to women.
Take a close look at your life right now. Think about how you might be attracting good or bad things into your day to day reality?
An Example from My Life
Not very long ago I was feeling as if no one in the world, cared, needed or loved me. I would sit at Starbucks, dinner by myself, or just in my home alone feeling invisible. Feeling sorry for myself.
Today everything is so different — in a good way. I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the attention and love I receive from the world. I am in high demand with the people in my life, to the point where I feel as if I have to give them a number and schedule an appointment for them !
What changed? I talk about this in my new book Survive, Live or Thrive?
There are so many things that changed, but the main answer is that I changed my mindset and the way that I choose to interact with the world.
I’m no longer angry and combative and feeling sorry for myself. I have taken full responsibility for my life and my choices and it really feels great.
I feel confident and happy. I treat people the way that I want to be treated. I don’t focus on petty things. I replace the urge to worry with positive thoughts of the best resolution to the issue.
And I have come to the realization that I was the one who was attracting all of that bad and sad stuff into my life, unconsciously.
We Are Constantly Creating Our Lives
This is a simple law of the universe that many of us don’t realize is happening every day in every way.
We are the ones who create our world. We unconsciously draw things into our lives by the way we talk, the way we feel, the way we think and the people we spend most of our time with. We are in charge of the creation process.
So if you want a better life, if you don’t like where you live, if you don’t like the people you’re around or you don’t like the way your bank account is set up, start creating a new life. Change it. Only you have the power to do that — you can’t sit around waiting for someone to swoop in and change your life for you.
Change the way you think, talk and interact with the world, starting today. Decide what you want and once you have that in mind, everything you say, think about and do should be about that goal.
Start today. Start right now. Stay strong, stay positive and continue educating yourself on how to get to exactly where you want to be.
