Have you guys heard of the Law of Attraction? The belief that by focusing on positive thoughts, one brings about positive experiences into one’s life. Do you believe this to be true? I do.
I believe that our choice of words impact our mindset and can change our perception of life. If we choose to focus on the positives, then our experience will be positive. Likewise, if we choose the focus on the negatives then our experience will be negative.
Do you ever catch yourself saying, “I am happy when I get XXX amount of salary" or "I am happy when I get a new car"…etc?
I find myself saying this frequently. For example, before I started this blog, I would say: "I will be happy when I start blogging because it would help me get better at writing." After starting this blog, I still found myself putting conditions on my happiness. I found myself saying: “I will be happy when I can write more fluently or fluidly.” Why is happiness so conditional? Why am I not celebrating my progress because the fact is I did make the first step in being a better writer?
Simply put, it was because of my words. Words are powerful. They can change our view of life so seamlessly and effortlessly. Words also impact our mindset. If you have a positive mindset, you’re happier. If you have a negative mindset, then you’re always be stuck in the rut. It’s up to you whether you want to be positive or negative. In my experience, the more I decide to take on the challenges, the more positive things come into my life.
Using my blogging as an example, I often feel anxious about writing and negative words would flow through my mind and mouth. These words would permeate my mind and negatively impact my writing experience. Over time and after learning about the Law of Attraction, I changed my thought process and learned to appreciate all my small victories.
Since this, my words have changed from “I am happy when…” to “I am happy that…”. I am happy that blogging has helped me become a better writer. By changing my choice of words and mindset I am simply happier. Yes, I know what we say cannot change our lives, but the words can help you perceive a better reality. You naturally attract better things in life if you are happier and more positive.
Happiness is my choice and if changing my words can create more positivity and happiness in my life, then hit me up!
