I have thought so much about this post over the past 24 hours. I can't help but think how much it is the optimists, the true BELIEVERS, that gain what they want out of life.

It's apparent all around us.

Those that are out there thinking "Nothing ever goes right for me and it never will" have set their course in life. They get exactly what they've asked for...the worst.

But just by changing our thoughts, we change our lives.

I become more and more amazed and grateful everyday!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend, my friends!

Correct thoughts create the right behavior. Just another example of the power of attraction through focusing on what you want. The universe can figure out the details so much better than we can. Once you knew the job was perfect and yours, just relaxing about it and being yourself was all that was needed. Congrats!!!!

This is so very true!!

I have forever focused on trying to control my behavior, when all along it was my thoughts that needed to be in tune with what it was that I wanted to see in my life.

I began doing so much more of the thought based living lately and found that it does work that way to be so true just the past few days.

I had another job interview and my thoughts were nothing but positive about the entire process...from getting the interview, to the actual interview process itself (no nerves, just being 100% myself) to knowing that the job was not only perfect for me but that it was mine.

And with a phone call at 11am this morning, IT IS!!! Just as I thought and envisioned, the positivity of my thoughts came into fruition.

I start my new job, one that pays $10,000 more per year than any previous job I've ever had!, on Wednesday of next week. GREAT benefits (another part of my vision), too!

And the coolest thing about it? My husband and I have plans to go to Las Vegas in October so I also made part of my thoughts that I would be able to take off at that time without a problem....and guess what? I get a weeks paid vacation after 6 months!!! (How many jobs do that? *smile*)

Life is so very good!!!

BELIEVE IT'S POSSIBLE
by Vic Johnson
(excerpted from Day by Day with James Allen)


"Belief is the basis of all action, and, this being so, the belief that dominates the hearts or mind is shown in the life." - Above Life's Turmoil

You will rarely attempt something you don't believe possible and you will 'Never' give 100% of your ability to something you don't believe in.

Some years ago I was listening to a friend speaking to a business audience. She quoted a teaching by David Schwartz from 'the Magic of Thinking Big' that rocked my life. She said, "The size of your success is determined by the size of you belief." Now that was the first personal development book I ever read and I've read it at least 20 times since. I'm sure that I had heard that concept many times before that night. But it impacted me so much that I wrote it down and must have looked at it a hundred times or more in the thirty days after that.

I spent the next few months focused on strengthening my belief in myself and in what I wanted to do. I took to heart what Wayne Dyer wrote in You'll See it When You believe It: "Work each day on you thoughts rather than concentrating on your behavior. It is your thinking that creates the feeling that you have and ultimately your actions as well." So I worked each day on my beliefs by constantly affirming myself using written and verbal affirmations. The years since have been an incredible rocket ride.


Make it a great day!
Lisa
