The Power of Positive Intention
What is the power of positive intention? The idea is that “like attracts like.” Positive thoughts attract positive experiences in one’s life. Negative thoughts attract negative experiences in one’s life. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy. So what does this mean to the average person? We can go our whole lives thinking that the worst things will happen, when we do this, they usually do. If we set our minds to something, like let’s say a successful business, and maintain a positive attitude, we will be successful. Our lives are direct outcomes of our attitudes.
Positive thinking is much tougher to live by than negative thinking. It’s easy to assume the worst outcome is going to happen. When you keep thinking that bad is going to happen, it will. Living with positive thinking is lucrative, rewarding, and quite frankly much more fun. Going with the flow of life, with a positive attitude will allow you to get much more out of life than you would ever have imagined. Dreams come true, goals are met, and success is achieved.
It is claimed that if someone consistently thinks prosperous thoughts than irrespective of their actual situation they will experience prosperity in the future because ‘like attracts like’. Conversely if a person consistently thinks that they are poor then that will be their future experience. One example used by Lisa Nichols in the film The Secret is as follows: “Every time you look inside your mail expecting to see a bill, guess what? It’ll be there. Each day you go out dreading the bill, you’re never expecting anything great, you’re thinking about debt, you’re expecting debt. So debt must show up, it showed up, because the power of positive intention is always being obedient to your thoughts. Feeling happy and grateful for the money you already have, is the fastest way to bring more money into your life.” It is claimed that when someone visualizes clearly and in detail what they want to achieve, and focuses upon that image, that they set in motion through the law of attraction a chain of events that eventually culminates in the materialization of that vision. Charles Haanel says in The Master Key System, “You must see the picture more and more complete, see the detail, and, as the details begin to unfold the ways and means for bringing it into manifestation will develop. One thing will lead to another. Thought will lead to action, action will develop methods, methods will develop friends, and friends will bring about circumstances, and, finally, the third step, or Materialization, will have been accomplished.”
In summary, we create our own destiny based on how we think. If we remain hopeful, and positive, our greatest dreams come true. If we stay stuck in negativity, our lives will constantly be disappointing. So, go out and make your dreams come true!
