The Right Attitude for Success

How are you feeling about 2016? It has just started and dare I say it, but for 99% of people, how it is going to end has already been decided. Their plans of becoming a landlord or being more successful have already been either set in motion or put on the back burner.

Most people have already decided by their internal thinking, which manifests itself in the actions they take, whether they are going to have a great 2009 or whether it is going to be a year where everything is going wrong.

Not everyone believes in the power of thought and in the Laws of attraction (if you don’t know what I mean by the laws of attraction in this context, then check out the secret at http://thesecret.tv) I personal do believe in these things and I also think that many people don’t believe in them that could, because they don’t understand the thought principal behind it, they think it is just some wishy-washy wishful thinking process.

In my view – and this is probably not the view of everyone that believes this stuff – the power of thought, the law of attraction and designing your own destiny all bring about positive action, both mental and physical. I don’t advocate, just sitting at home thinking and dreaming for 10 hours a day and then all your dreams will come true.

Now, this might work in some instances, (perhaps if you have a super powerful mind and belief system – who knows?) but I don’t really believe that this is how it was designed to work.

Life for me doesn’t work like that. I will give you an example. I am afraid it’s a religious one because I think it makes the point well, but don’t worry I am not trying to convert you to any particular religion: historically in religion when someone repented of their sins and became a religious person it wasn’t just a case of them confessing their sins to someone or to God and then going on with the rest of their lives as it was before.

No, there was a visual change that took effect. Anyone that knew this person before they converted and after would have seen a marked difference in the way they acted and the words they said and the way they lived their everyday lives. It would have been as though they were a different person, it was this marked changed in someone, virtually overnight, that led to the early religions being called a cult and other such names. When someone repented it was literally turning away from their sinful life and starting a new as a new person.

It was more than this watered down version of repentance we see today or even the dictionary term for repent which is often written as “feeling regret for a deed” etc. It was the start, the catalyst, to a whole transformation.


It is my belief that your inner thoughts and what you think about can and do often come to fruition. If you think positive thoughts, then positive things are more likely happen – you will attract positive things.  If you think negative thoughts then negative things are more likely to happen – you will attract negativity. It is perhaps a bit more complicated than this, but this is the simplified version.

Yes, in someway it is our perspective that changes in that if we think positively and something negative happens then we will frame it in a positive way and look for the positive in the situation, where as if you are in a negative frame of mind then you will only see the negative. But I believe it goes further than this and you actually create your destiny from what you think about.

But I would get away from the wishy-washy perspective a bit and say that is largely because with the law of attraction and engineering your own success with your thought pattern, you are actually going through a similar process to repentance – in the religious sense. What I mean by that is that if your thoughts truly change then there will be an outward change that will be evident to all.

It won’t just be a case of you sitting at home, dreaming, it will be a case that your thoughts will be driving you to make TRUE decision and that will drive you to take the actions that you need to take and the universe will be moving in such a way that it will mold itself to you and your design.

You might miraculously find yourself in situations that you wouldn’t have found yourself in otherwise or “coincidently” bump into people, in life situations, like on a plane or on holiday, that help you to fulfill your plans. Things will just appear to fall in to place out of the blue in ways you could not have planned it. (Okay I got a little wishy-washy there but couldn’t help it)

What I am trying to get across is that you are the author of your own destiny. Not just by sitting at home dreaming about it and not just by the actions that you take. It is a combination of these things that naturally work together when you are truly at one with and in sync and working congruently with where you want to go and what you want.

Part of what I mean by congruent is that your goals thoughts and aspirations need to match things like your ethics and values. Many people want to be wealthy but deep down believe they need to rip people off to be so.

So when they attempt to make money internally there is conflict happening and this means that everything is not working in sync and congruently. You need to work at getting this right. I highly recommend Anthony Robbins book Awaken the Giant Within. This is one of my favourite books and can really help in this area.
