Here we are at the beginning of a new year. I am a new person this year. My life is beginning again. After 10 years of retirement, I became tired of doing nothing but painting...don't get me wrong, I love to paint...but I am meant to earn a very good living. If for no other reason, than I deserve to. For almost my entire life I worked. Sometimes at jobs that were just that, jobs. But for the last 25 years before I retired, it was my business with my ex-husband.
I always knew that if I divorced him, I would be divorcing the business. I knew it, but I didn't want to believe it. So here I am after 10 years, beginning anew. Once again I am my own boss. Once again I get up with joy and cannot wait to get to my desk. It was the fresh start I needed. For once again, I know in my deepest soul, that I will be a success. Why, because I believe it. More than anything, I have always believed that I will be successful.
"If you think it, it will be so." Too many people do not believe they are the creators of their lives. For better or worse, they make their lives what they are...through their thoughts and deeds. You must, however, believe in your soul and your belief must be such that you are grateful for what you have been given, as well as living as if it is so.
The Universe operates on the law of attraction. If you don't believe me, throw a ball up in the air. What will happen? It will come down. Why? Because it is a law. As surely as the law of gravity is a law, so is the law of attraction. We attract into our lives that which we desire most. If our thoughts are always negative, we will always attract negativity. The wonderful part of this law is that if your thoughts are always positive, if you truly believe in the law of attraction, you will attract what you deeply desire.
So that old canard, "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it"...is really true. So always wish for what you really want, because you WILL get it! That's how the law works. One wonders why it's important to write out goals. It's important because, this way your mind and your soul know what you want. It is important to write out positive affirmations that you look at every day. Why, because they will come true. You will, in fact, get what you wish for.
John D. Rockefeller said early on, "I am going to make millions in the 1st half of my life, in the 2nd half of my life, I am going to give it away." That is just what he did. Every great invention, every great painting, every great business, began with one thought. This is going to be the greatest ever and they are.
The energy we put out, we get back. So remember, always put out good energy. In that way, you will always get good energy back!
