Living The Secret

There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for everything in my life. I go to bed every night thinking about what the day was like and concentrate on the positive. There are so many people that go to work every day and are miserable with their job but yet they try to be thankful because at least they have one. People thought I was crazy to open a store in this horrible economy. I know what made my store opening a huge success. Never once did I think about it not working out, never once did I think I may fail. Those who expressed their concerns or even may have said that there was no way this will work, I let it go in one ear and out the other. I appreciate the concerns however, because I am thinking only positive thoughts these days, these are not going to be concerns of mine. Again, I will say it is the work of The Secret.

Some may think people are just lucky or that someday successful people will fail. My thoughts are that these are the people that do not know how to put The Secret into effect or maybe they do not even know about it. If I see someone successful start to decline, I believe it is because they had felt they were not going to continue their success at some point. These negative feelings are what makes these negative situations come about. I have said to my friends....get the negative words out of your vocabulary. Stop saying: won't, can't, don't, etc. Turn every situation, every statement, every thought into: can, do, will, want. At first it is very hard and thankfully I am surrounded by people where we help each other in conversation turn things around that we may say negatively. However, if we train ourselves to get into this new habit, it will come just as easily as all those negative thoughts, feelings , and statements did. You can think I am crazy, I am ok with it because I know first hand that this works.

I sit and think about being in those miserable jobs and how it had my entire life miserable. I was not happy at home, I didn't smile as much, I had aches and pains in my twenties!, my relationships fell apart and nothing seemed to go right. We all know what it is like to wake up and start out with a crappy morning then it snowballs into the way the entire day will go. This is what was happening with my life. It was happening because I lost sight of what I wanted in my life. I had no dreams or goals because I was too miserable to think about it or even think I was deserving of anything good. All I could focus on was what I did not want, what I was not happy with and how I felt so trapped where I was. If only I would have known The Secret back then, I would not have gone into depressions, had a broken heart or have broken anyone's heart. I would not have lost contact with good friends, I would have had better luck and some light at the end of the tunnels. I was in a very dark place for a very long time.

However, now I am a completely different person in most ways. Do not get me wrong I am and always will be silly and full of laughter. Just in these days it is all of the time. It seriously is not hard to do. All you need to do is sit down and ask for what you want out of life. Is it a car, to lose weight, a different job, to find love, or just to feel happy again? You can achieve this and it is effortless. All I can say is, ask for it, feel it, and be grateful. How do you think I am having such a successful new business in such a stressful economic time? I have no doubts that my business will succeed, I have no negative thoughts running through my mind about 'what if' or how am I going to afford this? If you really want it, it will work out as long as you are completely, 100% positive in your thinking.

What I am thankful for tonight:
The feeling of my Pop-Pop and my Mimi with me as I am typing this.......brrrrrr!
The ability to share The Secret with everyone I know
My teachers, my customers, my family and my friends
My pets
My dreams
