the way you have never done it before
A few years ago, a sweet friend of mine found out that I had never had a birthday cake, so she made one for me and I got the experience to blow out the candles and make a wish. It was a very special moment for me, because it was the closest thing I had to a real birthday party, which was secretly my dream since I was a child.
Since then, I actually threw a couple birthday parties for my daughters, and they were a success. I had never dared embark under such undertaking. You know, I consider myself a creative, except in the crafting department, and I am told I am a good host, and end up enjoying it, but I confess I never look forward to it. Okay, you’re right, I’ll say it: I absolutely dread it.
I have embraced that I feel pressured and I pressure makes me feel inadequate and leads me to depression.
I have tried to talk myself out of it. I love kids. I love having kids around. And I know I can keep a few kids entertained for a couple of hours. But the thing is, this throwing your kid the perfect birthday party goal has gotten way out of hand these days.
It’s easy to get carried away with stressful logistics, gift registries, RSVP’s gone wrong, and Pinterest ideas that don’t seem to ever come out as cute as the original pin, even when you carefully followed each and every bit of the instructions. Or to invite every possible kid from church, class, and the neighborhood, because you don’t want any kids to get their feelings hurt – or their parents to judge you.
I think we have forgotten why we throw birthday parties, making it too much about us being perceived as a super mom, than it is about our child having a memorable and enjoyable experience.
For my birthday, since it was going to be a very special one, I decided to give my inner kid the perfect birthday party: one with all the fun and none of the fuss. It was December 23, which commemorates El Dia del Niño (the day of the child) in my homeland, so it was a perfect day to celebrate all children.
Since Chuck E. Cheese’s launched new birthday party offerings to make birthdays bigger and better than ever, I jumped in at this opportunity! The new Chuck E. Cheese’s online reservation system made it super convenient to book our birthday party, and it sent out electronic invitations to our guests.
Psychologists and childhood experts say that you must invite the same amount of kids as your child’s age plus one. In this case, it would have been a disaster, but we did have reasonable amount of birthday party guests. Most of the parents dropped off their children and no gifts were required. If we’re honest, some gifts are just better than others and feel more personal, so I don’t like to have all that competition in my head. I am happy to just have someone’s presence in the party and we can call it even.
We had a Chuck E. Cheese’s bilingual host do everything for us. She took care of everything related to scheduling, as well as the cups and plates, the pizza, the lemonade, and the decor. You can choose from many birthday party themes, including: “Party Like a Rock Star,” “Dressed in Pink Party,” “Sports, Sports, Sports” and “Chuck E. Super Fan.” Of course, I went all pink for this one.
Chuck E. Cheese’s birthday packages include three different price / package levels including:
I really enjoyed that besides the fun kid centric environment and non stop games, you can include goody bags in your birthday party package, so the kids can get a parting gift.
I was fun and easy – and no one let go of a balloon and cried for 30 minutes. Of course, anything you do will take some effort, but hey, this is as effortless as it gets. Hurray for simpler parties where everyone enjoys themselves.
Since Chuck E. Cheese’s is really popular, you may be thinking the crowd could be overwhelming, but Chuck E. Cheese’s also offers another birthday experience for visitors – a VIP birthday party experience, where you get the whole party area to yourself before the restaurant opens, for 90 minutes.
The perfect birthday party doesn’t have to be elaborate, expensive, or chaotic. We don’t need to feel guilty if we don’t overextend our ourselves and our budget, and trust me when I say, no one cares when we go above and beyond to show off our skills – she who will be happy will be happy and she who will find something to complain will. Don’t take it personally.
If you don’t have the time, money, or inclination to organize the PERFECT birthday party of the year, don’t set torturous unrealistic expectations for yourself, and throw an amazing party at America’s number one place for birthdays – Chuck E. Cheese’s. I was so happy I did.
Many people might think that doing daily affirmations every single day is a waste of time. However, the ositive things you speak about yourself have the power to shape you. Positive and negative self talk can have a big impact on your mental health.
Look at it this way, sometimes, a simple act of unkindness can mess up your entire day. Why is this so? The things you let linger in your mind determine how you view life. If you woke up that morning affirming that you’re important, you wouldn’t take unkindness personally. You would understand that someone’s action is not your fault but rather a reflection of who they are or what they’re struggling with. Do you ever wonder how people manage to return unkindness with kindness? Well, it’s because they’re so self-aware that external forces cannot determine how they react to different situations.
So, even though daily positive affirmations sound rather basic, they have an unimaginable effect on your unconscious mind [for more on this read: How to exercise subconscious mind]. The thoughts you feed your mind helps shape your view of the world. You can help create a more ideal life for yourself simply by projecting positive energy to the universe. Just like paper writing, when it comes to creating affirmations, the output will match the input. If you’re always putting yourself in your thoughts, you’re likely to fail. However, if you constantly express confidence in yourself, you will most definitely excel.
Defining Daily Affirmations
So what exactly are daily affirmations? Well, daily affirmations are quite similar to exercising. Whereas working out helps you achieve the body you want, daily affirmations ensure you have a good state of mind. You can reprogram the mind consciously or unconsciously based on the affirmations you repeatedly say to yourself. You might think you had a bad day because you woke up from the wrong side of the bed when, in reality, the thoughts you had before falling asleep the previous night were negative.
When you create positive affirmations, you leave no room for negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. You can easily transform your comfort zone from one that limits your capability to a more freeing one. Positive affirmations free your mind of imaginary chains that keep you mediocre. When you take up a more positive outlook on life, you begin to believe that anything is possible. Start replacing your “I can’t” with “I can” and see how your fears and doubts fly out the window. You can exponentially grow your confidence overnight, but you first have to believe in yourself.
How To Use Positive Affirmations To Stay Focused
When you take up a negative outlook on life, it can be quite easy to give up. It doesn’t matter how hard you’ve been working on a project. One simple mishap is all it takes for you to down your tools and throw in the towel. So how does one keep their eyes on the prize even when everything seems to be going south? To begin with, you need to affirm yourself daily of your value and capabilities to accomplish the task at hand. It doesn’t have to the something complex. It can be a phrase as simple as “I am Capable” or “I’m a Big Deal.”
If you’re starting a business and you believe that you’re a big deal, big corporations will not intimidate you because you know you’re on a different journey. However, if you keep saying your business is going to fail, even as a joke, your brain gives off negative energy. You’ll be intimidated by rival businesses when, in reality, you have a better chance at succeeding. What affirmations do is that they keep your unconscious mind on a specific path. If your thoughts are positive, your mind stays on the path to success. How else do you think you find ways to overcome your challenges so fast? It’s all in the mind
Another thing about maintaining a positive mind you should know is, it keeps you happy and content even when things seem to be falling apart. A third party looking in from the outside will wonder how you keep it together because they wouldn’t understand how your mind works. Reprogram your mind to keep calm even when you’re in a storm. After all, freaking out and losing control does not provide you with a solution. Creating higher vibrations of gratitude, appreciation, and joy also attracts positive people into your life. This is how you find yourself surrounded by like-minded people. As they say, birds of the same feather flock together.
How To Create Positive Affirmations
Now that you know what affirmations mean and how they keep you focused on your goals let us look at how to create positive affirmations. To begin with, you need to understand that positively affirming yourself should be a daily affair. For you to successfully reprogram your mind, you have to interrupt your normal way of thinking and replace it with a positive one. For instance, if you’re always having negative thoughts, having a positive thought once every couple of days is not enough to reprogram your mind. This means that you have to repeat positive affirmations even on days when you don’t feel enough. When the world is weighing down on you, you’ve got to keep believing that everything you’ve ever dreamt of is possible.
Flood your subconscious mind with positive thoughts [here’s a guide] and images of what you want to be your new reality until you overthrow the government, so to speak. Here are a few guidelines to help you come up with powerful positive affirmations;
Begin every affirmation with “I am” because they’re the most powerful words in the English language.
Always say your affirmations in the present tense.
Affirm what you want in your life, not what you don’t. Keep it positive.
Be specific with what you want.
Keep your statements short and include and action word.
Include a dynamic emotion in every statement.
All affirmations should be for you and no one else.

Even if you are the most positive person in the world, it is challenging to stay positive when life gets ugly. Sometimes, life can hit with a brick on your head and problems can seem overwhelming.
However, that doesn’t mean that you should give up or succumb to what life is throwing at you. Take it as a test that builds your character. Like what Les Brown, the motivational speaker has to say, “Don’t say that you’re having a bad day. Say that you’re having a character-building day.” If you study the life and encounters of extraordinary people, you will understand that life can be tough and things can seem bleak. But somehow, these extraordinary people seem to be able to make it through.
Remember, you always have a choice. You can choose to look at things from a positive side or the negative side. The choice is yours. And because you have a choice and you can make the call, you can still maintain positive even when life gets ugly. Like what Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you are right.”
So choose to see your situation in a positive manner, look at your problems as opportunities, and treat tough times as a chance to grow your characters.
How to stay positive when life gets hard
Here are 5 tips on how to stay positive when life gets hard.
1. Understand that everything is just your perceptions
First, you need to understand that whatever happens to you, there is no good or bad, they are just circumstances. It is your perceptions that make the situation negative.
For example, most people hate failures and they treat failures as something bad. But in the eye of Thomas Edison, failures were good. Failures were the feedback that told Edison where he should improve. This was why when he was asked about his 10,000 failures, he said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Thus, everything is neutral. There is no good news or bad news. It is your thinking that makes it so. Understand this principle and you can turn everything bad in your life into something positive.
Remember, success usually comes from good judgment. Good judgment usually comes from experience. And experience usually comes from bad judgment. Look at things from a brighter side.
2. Remember the dream
The next thing you can do is to always remember your dream. When life gets ugly, it is even more important that you remember your dream so that you will never lose your focus. Most people fail to achieve the success they want in life because they often get distracted by the things that are happening around them. They lose themselves when things are not going their way. If you want to stay positive, make sure you keep your dreams in your mind all the time. There is a saying, “You become what you think about most of the time.” Guess what will happen if you constantly think about the problems, the failure, and the negative situations that you are in? You end up becoming negative. Hence, maintain your positive by regularly reminding yourself about your dreams and goals. For they can act like a lighthouse that show you the direction when you are in the dark.
3. Focus on the lessons
Successful people look at setbacks and failures as lessons, not problems. When life gets hard, you need to treat it as a character-building day. Look at tough times as training lessons that can grow you and take you to the next level.
When he was 30, he was fired from the company that he started. Steve Jobs felt that he was publicly out and his entire life was gone. But when he looked back at the event that he was fired from Apple during his commencement speech at Stanford University, he said that being fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to him.After Jobs has been fired, he gained a new perspective and able to start as a new beginner again. “The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again,” was what he said. So welcome frustrations, setbacks, problems, and failures. These are the things that can grow you to become someone worthy of success.
Without going through the tough times in life, you will never grow and you will never be successful. Therefore, learn to focus on the lessons that life is trying to teach you. When you look at your circumstances in this manner, life becomes a great teacher that pushes you forward, not dragging you down.
4. Rediscover your purpose and reignite your passion
One of the best things you can do to stay positive when life gets ugly is to rediscover your purpose and reignite your passion. You have to understand that what gets you started is your purpose and what gets you going is your passion.
Study the success stories of extraordinary people like Richard Branson, Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, Michael Jordan, etc., you will discover that they started with a purpose and they back their purpose with their passion. So why do you want to achieve what you desire? Imagine going through life without a clear purpose, what will you do? Anything. It is just like shooting an arrow without knowing where the target is. You will hit nowhere. This is why you must constantly remind yourself of your purpose.
Besides, let your passion drives your actions. Try to align your passion with your purpose. Without passion, you will give up as soon as you hit a roadblock. Steve Jobs got it right by saying, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” There is no way you can perform at your best if you don’t like what you do. And when times get tough, it is your passion that will get you going because you love to do it and you are willing to do it even when it is tough.
5. Bounce back with action
Finally, you must get ready to bounce back by taking massive action. People stuck in a tough situation because they are either doing the wrong thing or they don’t do anything at all. If you want to get out of a rut, you must move and make progress. Staying stagnant is not going to help change the situation at all. People don’t get drown by falling into the water. People get drown because they stay there. If you want to get out of a tough situation, get moving. Don’t just stop there. What you can do then is to come up with a new plan of action. Write down everything that you can do to turn the situation around, and then just do it.
I love this quote from Larry Winget: “Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.”
Thus, create a plan to get to the higher ground. Your plan is the guiding light that shows you how to get out of tough times. But whether you choose to follow your plan or not is up to you.
Of course, choose to bounce back by taking actions. Don’t just sit there and wait for things to happen. After all, life may not be always perfect, but it is always what you make of it.
In a world where the news constantly portrays violence and negativity, mental health problems are on the rise, and more and more people seem to be struggling to stay afloat, it can seem hard to stay positive.
Fortunately for you, it doesn’t have to be. Choosing to look at the negative is a choice, not a necessity. Oftentimes, people who live in conditions that we in the West would consider terrible – such as families in less-developed countries – are quite happy. This is because they choose to look at the positive.
While it might not always be easy, it’s certainly possible. In this article, we’ll talk a bit about how you can choose to stay positive in a world that seems to be overwhelmingly negative.
What Exactly Is Staying Positive?Before moving forward, it’s a good idea to actually have a good idea of what staying positive actually means.
In general, staying positive means simply ‘looking at the bright side,’ or appreciating the silver lining. A positive person recognizes that there is generally something beneficial in every situation. Instead of focusing on the undesirable aspects of a situation, they choose to look at the desirable aspects.
However, it’s also important not to let this become a trap. Many people have fallen into the new-age trap of being positive to the point of it becoming a detriment.
Simply put though, staying positive helps in several ways. Optimism is ideal in most circumstances, but it’s also important to be realistic. If you are struggling with a health problem, for example, don’t bypass the problem by ignoring it in favour of more positive thoughts. Staying positive also means taking care of yourself and the people around you.
That said, there are many ways that you can remain positive in a world that has its fair share of darkness. These are some of the best ways you can do so.
Look On the Bright SideEasier said than done, looking on the bright side is the best way to remain positive. However, it takes a great deal of practice to learn how to look on the bright side of life. All the other tips described in this article can supplement your ability to see the good side of things.
Looking on the bright side does not mean that you’re being ignorant of the dark side. It means that you simply choose to focus your attention on the positive and beneficial side of a situation.
For example, say your car breaks down on the weekend right before you go to visit your friend.
A pessimistic person would dwell on the fact that they can’t see their friend, they would mope, and their weekend would be ruined. An optimistic person, on the other hand, would recognize the inconvenience but then rejoice, perhaps, that they can now spend more time with their family or take time to rest.
It’s all a matter of perspective.
MeditateMeditation is a fantastic and holistic way for you to not only appreciate life more, but also impact your general mental health for the better.
When you meditate, you develop a perspective that is unbiased. This allows you to approach life ‘as-it-is,’ without applying judgments like “positive” or “negative” to all the things that you “like” or “dislike.”
People who meditate simply see things the way they are. As such (and after years of practice), they develop a state of non-judgmental bliss that many people describe as overwhelmingly positive.
Develop a Positive EnvironmentDon’t surround yourself with negative people. Build a positive environment, filled with optimistic, passionate, caring people who will help build you up instead of bring you down.
Avoid watching negatively-inspired media, such as the news or violent movies. Listen to happy, uplifting music and watch how much your mindstate changes.
Other Tips for Staying PositiveHere are some more tips for staying positive in a world that can sometimes be seen through a negative lens.
There’s no doubt that there is some negativity in the world.
Fortunately, it’s a personal choice as to whether or not we choose to focus on that negativity. There is just as much positivity out there, and it’s within your power to focus on that. These tips should help you do this.

Mistakes are often impulsive habits. When others get upset again and again, those mistakes can become a way of being.
“I cause a lot of trouble; that is who I am. I did it again. I got kicked out and a lecture. I know it’s not so good to do that all the time, but I can’t really help it. That’s me.”
A resonance of habit, an endless knot, keeps coming round again even though the results aren’t desirable.
We all know it can be hard for anyone to step off current habits and take a step in a new direction. Let’s offer the possibility of stepping off the endless path. Let’s warmly provide alternate actions that with a quick bit of practice can alter those repeating habits that cause problems.
Imagine that troublesome person was you. You keep finding yourself in trouble, but this time someone who cares about you offers a constructive way to act, what you should have done, immediately after you made the mistake. You try this other thing, and they calmly call for a few additional repetitions. Would you accept a warm, supportive opportunity to practice a few more times without feeling like you are in trouble? Most people accept that help.
Positive Practice procedure stops the world immediately after a mistake is made, provides an example of the correct or more appropriate thing to do or say in that setting, and invites three more repetitions before spinning onward. No anger. No disapproval. Full support.
“Here is what you should have done. I invite you to practice this way to do it correctly four times.”
A group of children run into the classroom at high speed and some adult yells, “Walking feet!” I would be tempted to ask the adult, “How’s that ‘walking feet’ thing working out for you? Has it stopped the running?” Positive Practice invites the children to go back to the doorway and walk into the classroom calmly. “I invite you to return to the doorway and walk into the classroom calmly. One. Now back to the doorway again. Two. Two more times. Back to doorway and back in. Three. OK. One more time. Four. There we go. You got it.” I hold up four fingers as the signal. Each repeat lowers a finger. At the end I say something like “That works better.” The word “invite” is helpful, too.
When I first tried this with children, I was surprised at how well it worked. The literature on Positive Practice — which you can easily find —said to require 10 repetitions, so I did. I soon found that making the person do something more than 4 times felt contrived, so I dropped it to 5. With some experience I found 4 to be about right. “Right” means 4 repetitions dramatically reduced the occurrence of the mistake, and I felt myself being open, connected, and warmly on the child’s side.
Having used Positive Practice dozens of times, I have become convinced that children want to behave in more effective ways. There seems to be no other explanation for their willingness to practice a better way and then to change to that better way amazingly quickly. Every child I have used Positive Practice with has readily complied; not one has refused. Year after year, I hear the same reports of willingness when my students try it, too.
A child sneezes into the air without covering. Using Positive Practice one holds up 4 fingers and has the child fake sneeze into the inside of their elbow four times.
I see a child wipe her drooling nose with her sleeve. I invite the child to walk from where she stands over to the tissue box, pull a tissue, wipe her nose, toss the tissue into the waste bin, wash her hands, and return. Then I have her do the whole sequence a second, third, and fourth time.
A child roughly pushes another child aside to gain access to the block shelf. Positive Practice recreates that circumstance with the pushee and invites the pusher to say “excuse me”, move around, come back, say it again, move around, come back, say it again, move around, come back, say it again, and move around. Four repetitions.
On a walk down the street a child in your group sees a flower in someone’s garden and picks it. The group stops. The child practices 4 ways to adore the flower: smell it, touch it gently, say “This is pretty.” “Look at the colors.” “I wish I could keep it.” “If I pick it, it kills it.” After the child practices 4 alternatives, the group proceeds down the street.
A child pushes the grocery cart at high speed down the aisle. Positive Practice is to push the cart down the aisle at a calm speed four times: down and back, down and back.
A child grabs a toy from another child. Instead of saying “Use your words”, give the child the words. “Could I have that when you’re done?” Invite him to say something along those lines 4 times.
In a crossing a busy street a child in your group drops her partner’s hand and wanders outside of the marked crosswalk. The middle of a busy street may not be a good time for Positive Practice. Sometime soon you find a street crossing with no traffic and practice four times staying hand-in-hand with a partner and remaining inside the marked crosswalk.
NOT INCLUDED CONSEQUENCES: OVERCORRECTION & SATIATION
Some may find in the literature the idea of overcorrection, which is an aversive experience distinct from positive practice, even though the terms are often confused. I leave it out, because we have already covered aversives.
Satiation, which requires the child to do the mistake repeatedly, can also be found in the literature. It is in violation of my values and even my ethics to make a child practice an unfortunate, habitual mistake over and over, like these sad examples.
Have a hitting child hit a punching bag for hitting others.
Have a spitting child spit over and over into the toilet for spitting outside.
Have a biting child bite a teething ring over and over for biting others.
This is negative practice, coercion practice for the adult, and obedience practice for the child. Positive Practice offers a new way to behave, so a person will be more likely to choose it at the appropriate time. How could negative practice ever do that?

Many people are interested in learning how to create the life they desire and attract abundance, but are still looking for a way to ground the magical science behind the law of attraction in some kind of scientific reality.
The result is a new era of research into the brain and body, mind and consciousness and a way to connect new scientific concepts with ideas about creating reality that have been around forever.
The law of attraction is about matching energetic frequencies to attract the things we desire into our experience. It is based on the idea that like attracts like, and equally dislike attracts dislike. Whatever you are focused on grows – be it good or bad, negative or positive.
It doesn’t make any difference whether you believe in the validity of the Law of Attraction or not, as a law, just like gravity, it is working its effect on you.
Your thoughts create your reality. Wouldn’t you like to know how to deliberately harness this powerful law?
The LOA and some Simple Quantum Physics
Delving just a little into basic quantum physics, we can see where scientific concepts make sense of the Law of Attraction (The Magical Science Behind The Law of Attraction).
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity showed us that atomic energy vibrates at different rates. His famous equation E= mc2 proved that energy and matter are two sides of the same coin.
The entire universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. The same energy that exists all over the universe exists within us. Energy therefore, is at the basis of all physical reality.
Just like everything else in the universe, each atom that makes up our physical bodies is vibrating at a specific frequency.
Our cells communicate with each other in tiny impulses, tiny sparks of light energy carried inside our bodies.
This energy is light and is always moving both within and around our physical beings, but it is too difficult for us to perceive these different vibrations with our human senses.
Just knowing that we are made up of the same energy as everything else that exists can help us to believe that intelligence, an invisible consciousness exists within all of us.
Our destiny really is controlled by our conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings. We have the power as human beings to manifest into reality any potential future that we choose to attract. The power lies within our own minds and within the universal mind in all its potentiality.
There are three simple, everyday ways you can begin to align your energy with the energy of your desires.
Feel the feeling place of having your desires.
Practice acting, speaking and being like the person of your dreams.
Take positive action towards your dreams.
Understand that what you desire on some vibrational, energetic level already exists. You have to open your mind to the infinite, limitless potential of the universe, and the fact that time and space are man made constructs of reality.
There are different future potentials that already exist on an energetic level – you get to choose which one you want to experience by your clear focus and attention.
1. Find The Feeling Place
Practice the fun of imagining what it would feel like to have the thing you want. Go as far as you can in your imagination before negative “reality” thinking takes over. What would it feel like to not be worried anymore about your finances or your health?
Try to spend some time each day to really conjure up those feelings within your emotional and physical body.
Neuroscience teaches us that we have something like 70,000 thoughts a day and 90% of them are the same as the day before. During our lifetimes we hardwire patterns of thought into our brains and these patterns just reinforce our beliefs, perspectives and attitudes over and over again.
You have to make a deliberate effort to think differently to how you are used to. You have to access new thoughts by finding the feeling place of the things you want. When you FEEL your way forward, you attract new thoughts that will then begin to hardwire your neural pathways into new positive patterns.
2. Practice Acting, Speaking And Being Like The Person Of Your Dreams
To attract whatever it is you desire, you have to act as if you already have it. Now you might find that hard right,
How can I act as if I have lots of money when I know I earn minimum wage? That is where the power of thought, imagination and visualization comes in.
Imagine what this newly manifested reality would feel like to you as the person living it. How would you act differently? How would you speak to others and importantly to yourself? Would you walk differently or wear different clothes?
One of the best things you can do to start drawing in new experiences to your life is to act as if. Do you want to be a professional writer? Start behaving as if you already are one. Get a routine that you know real professionals follow, project that image in your mind and don’t let criticism from your self or others ruin it.
Once you start to embody who you really are you cannot help but actually become that person. The Law of Attraction has to respond to you. Remember, our brains do not know the difference between real and imagined. Our minds are so powerful, whatever we believe begins to be shown to us over time.
One of the hardest parts of the law of attraction that people don’t tend to talk about is the fact that it is difficult, near impossible to create a new reality, i.e. the manifestation of your desires, from a mental and emotional place that is the same as your old or present reality.
The solution is on a different frequency than the problem. That is why literally going into a new frame of mind is essential. You have to strip away limiting beliefs, outdated self-image and any feelings of unworthiness and negativity. You have to create from a place of open-minded belief and self-love. You have to be prepared to change.
When you love yourself, anything is possible. When you love yourself, you do not have to force things or convince yourself of anything, you just expect good things to happen and so they do.
3. Take Positive Action Towards Your Dreams
Clearly, you have to actually behave in a way that supports the manifestation of your dreams too. Attitude is everything; there is a difference between forcing yourself to do something you don’t want to and taking positive action from a place of happy, optimistic expectation.
For example, if you want to make money in a freelance business but are currently stuck in a 9-5 job you hate (make that more likely 8 -7) you could begin by doing research on the type of thing you would rather be doing.
Read articles about people who made it as entrepreneurs and note how they did it and what steps they took. There is always time in the day to do something. Even just ten minutes extra a day that you put aside as your “positive action” time will help to boost your confidence and self belief.
If you want to get fit, it could be the ten minutes a day you go for a longer walk or a run. Maybe you start small and you add in some extra stretches or yoga before bed. Whatever it is, the key is make it fun and feel good about yourself while doing it.
Take a leap of faith, control what is within your control regarding your dream, and then leave the rest up to the simple science of the Law of Attraction.
