“Your greatest limitation comes from within, not from without!” Master Choa Kok Sui
There are tons and tons of quotes, proverbs and advices that are constantly trying to tell us that by thinking positive, we can attract lots of positivity, happiness and success. In fact there are a great number of people who have been extremely successful and achieved amazing heights by keeping a positive and optimistic attitude in life; and of course by putting time and effort towards their goals.
Many did not start with a prosperous life, many did not have any contacts or support, and many started with literally nothing and yet achieved a lot. Jim Carrey, Oprah Winfrey and Jay Z are just few examples of such…
What makes these people different from the rest is basically how they look at life and at themselves. They somehow seem to know how the universe works; either by reading, practicing or just simply by following their instinct. They have the ability to tap into the fabric of life and attract what they have been dreaming of.
What many of these people are aware of is that the universe is in fact governed by some laws and cycles. There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity; sometimes we are up, and sometimes down! Things never stand still. If we know how these laws work, we can change our future.
One of the most important laws is that we attract what we send out and we receive, what we give.
What these great people did was to send out a positive impulse and a strong thought, even in the midst of a very difficult situation, and get what they wanted in return; because this is exactly how the universe works! It follows what you think of! The thoughts are actually the seeds!
So in order to create a change in the physical world, we need to start changing the inner world.
The inner world is basically the world of thoughts. When we think of something or dream of achieving a goal, we are creating a thought form or a thought entity. It is called a thought entity, because it is alive and can affect the outside world to a certain degree. With most people the thought form created is very weak and indefinite, as they are not yet 100% sure whether they can achieve it or not. Sometimes people even don’t know exactly what they want!
This is when BELIEVE comes into play. We must know exactly what we want in life and we must believe that we can achieve it.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” Henry Ford
In order to make powerful thought forms that can lead us to the goal, we must be determined, confident and precise with what we want to achieve. Only then the thought form becomes a powerful being that will help us get there!
Writing down the goals, active visualization and looking at photos related to the goal are some of the techniques that have been discussed by many people already in relation to creating powerful thought forms. Doing Kriyashakti is also another way of materialization, which was practiced by many yogis and spiritual aspirants from ancient days.
But sending out a positive impulse and a strong thought form is not enough, we also need to exert WILL. This will make sure we continue to stay focused and determined and we continue to energize our created thought form.
Creation is basically done by the use of WILL.
“Things happen because you Will them to happen. Creation is done by the Will, by influencing the Inner World.” Master Choa Kok Sui
So if you have the will, you will find a way! Will is the driving force that usually comes from a strong desire; desire to change, to achieve or to excel.
Will, basically means to stay determined and focused even when your body is tired. Some people call it perseverance!
Some of the successful businessmen were rejected over and over again, some of them were even humiliated for their vision, yet they had the WILL to continue and to finally excel.
Besides a strong will and commitment, attitude also matter. Another common characteristic of successful people is their optimism.
Optimism not only puts us in a positive state to create powerful thought forms, but also affects our energy level and helps us attract good luck.
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Winston Churchill
How is that so?!
As stated earlier, the universal law says, what you send out, will come back to you. Based on the principle of oneness, what we do to others we are basically doing to ourselves. Lets say, a grumpy person always nags. Therefore the energy and atmosphere created by him is pessimist and negative. What comes back in return is therefore negativity in the form of pessimist people, unfavorable events and unexpected accidents or in other words bad luck. While an optimist, thinks positive, which attracts more of the same kind: positivity, which manifests as good luck.
Furthermore, optimism puts us in a positive emotional state that increases our energy level and stamina that can help us achieve greater heights. In order to make a change in our life, we need energy. Energy makes things work!
That is why people with better attitudes are most of the times more successful.
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” Mahatma Gandhi
So whether we have a good life or not simply depends on us! It all starts within and we are in fact the architects of our own life!!!
