I believe in karma. I believe what goes around comes around. I believe you get exactly what you ask for in life – so you need to be aware of what you are asking for.
You may be raising your hands to the sky, begging for better luck, for friends who love and support you, for a rewarding job with bosses and co-workers who value and respect you, for financial security… and so on. But your vocal request only lasts for a second. What is the lasting message you are putting out to the world?
Do you slouch or sit and stand up straight? Do you shuffle and drag your feet as you move through your day, or do you step lively and with purpose? Do you show up to the job on time each day, and show pride in your work?
This is the real message you are sending to the world. This is the message the world responds to. The fact is, you get what you ask for. If you are the sloucher, the foot shuffler, you will likely have a slow paced, non-eventful life, lacking in purpose and excitement for the present and future. Where as the person who stands tall and walks through their day, and life, with excitement and purpose – attracts the same. Their life is almost certainly full of exciting events, constantly progressing forward toward the goals they desire -while enjoying each day of the journey.
In the same way, the person who shows up late to work, turns in careless assignments because this is not their dream job so they just do not care, will receive the same. They may not get fired because they do, after all, show up and turn in work. But guaranteed, they will not get respect and recognition, let alone promotion.
Consider the people in your life. A positive, upbeat, going somewhere person is only going to be able to tolerate a complainer and grumbler, someone who talks poorly of others and themselves, for very long. Who is going to be attracted to the grumbler? Another grumbler. Misery loves company? It’s true.
If you want good things to happen in your life, good friends, good job, happy home, and a fun and enjoyable life – try being that person. Stop the whining and complaining. Truth is even the upbeat, positive person has crap storms from time to time. They just do not let it take over their life. So try it. Push back the negative thoughts. Fill your head with thoughts that make you happy. Smile. Show up to life like you mean it by getting up on time each day, wash and dress for the event of the day. Stand tall and walk like you have a purpose. Be a good friend, keep you word. Go one step father than required on your work assignments. Smile!
You don’t have to feel positive and upbeat to act like it. Another great saying? Fake it ’til you make it!
Give it a try and watch your life improve. (Another little tip: it works for attracting a mate also. Start being the kind of person you want to attract, and he or she will come running.)
