You Can Have What You Want
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” — Charles Dickens
Most people know about karma, which translates to: what you give out, you get back in the same form.
That being said, are you giving attention to what you are projecting in terms of your thoughts, words, feelings, and actions?
It is a universal law that you reap what you sow. Moreover, you are a reflection of your predominant thoughts, beliefs, words, and actions.
You are what you think about and you receive according to your predominant thoughts.
How about giving out what you most want to get back?
Do you want more love? Give out an abundance of love.
Do you want more people to care about you? Spend more time showing people you care.
Like attracts like.
Whatever you want in your life, focus on that and you will receive more of the same in return because it is a universal principle.
You can have what you want in life. Your desires can come true if they are realistic and you understand the principles involved to get them. The materialisation of your desires is not magic; it is based on universal laws.
“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” — Zig Ziglar
First, instead of focusing on what you don’t have or how terrible life is, focus your attention on what you do want.
Do you want more success? Love? Money? Health? Friends?
Write it down, journal it and get clear on what rocks your boat. Spend more time thinking about these things.
Do you want more money flowing into your life? Maintain a prosperity consciousness and simultaneously, sow into other people’s lives that are in need.
Do you want more success in your career? Mentor someone looking to climb the ladder to success. Want to meet a loving partner? Be loving towards those you meet.
Entertain thoughts of love and compassion while focusing your attention on your desires. The smallest actions yield the greatest returns.
The universe looks to you to deliver on your thoughts, words and actions. But you must get the ball rolling first and then the Uni-verse (translation: One Song) will chime in.
Believe + Receive
“From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” — Arthur Ashe
Once you focus your attention on the things you want and are clear on your intentions, believe you will receive your desires.
Don’t be too specific on the details, keep it general and allow the universe to bring you better things.
Maintain a state of gratitude and expectancy. Be on the lookout for the manifestation of your desires. Maybe you will get that promotion sooner than expected or an even better career might be waiting for you around the corner.
It’s important to first believe, then you will receive.
Remain hopeful, positive and happy as a general rule. Don’t buy into the trap that you will be happy when you receive your desire because it doesn’t work that way.
Why would the universe send you good stuff when you are unable to appreciate the goodness in your life right now?
It Is Not All About You
“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” — Mother Teresa
It’s wonderful to have desires and receive them, but it is not all about you. Understand that as you give out and sow into others, they receive value as well.
When you give $50 to the youth group mission, you are adding value to other people’s lives and you will receive the goodness back because of this. It really is a win-win situation.
Mother Teresa was one of the most selfless women in history and her love and compassion served in many ways.
Those she cared for received an incredible blessing and the love and gratitude she received from those she served blessed her socks off.
She gave out what she most wanted to get: unconditional love. She understood spiritual principles and lived a beautiful life of service.
I know, I know this all sounds like wishy-washy: Law of Attraction, New Age mumbo jumbo. But what if we take the LOA label away from it and call it Inspired Living?
Would you sign up to this way of life?
It doesn’t matter what you call it, because inspired living is a way of life.
What Is It That You Most Want To Get Back In Life?
“I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” — Kahlil Gibran
Think about this for a few minutes and write down what comes to mind. Then think about how you can give out the exact things you want and do it.
Change the way you think about your desires and believe you can have what you want.
Send out positive thoughts and like a boomerang watch the positive things come back to you. It’s not about positive thinking alone rather positive energy; emotional energy.
I’m certain there was a point in your life when you were optimistic, whether it was as a child, teenager or young adult. Draw on that energy and invite it back into your life.
Many people think this stuff doesn’t work because it is not grounded in science. Moreover, when they read or hear of stories related to people living an inspired life, they chalk it up to chance or luck.
Nothing I say will change your mind until you do. My hope is not to convince you of something new, but to offer you something you haven’t tried before.
I’m proposing a new way of life because for whatever reason you decided to click on this article, whether the title caught your attention or someone shared it with you.
Take the chance and go with it. Call it an experiment.
You don’t even need to commit to this way of life until you see results. Try it on for size and see if what you give out comes back to you in a better way than you could ever have imagined.
