You could be forgiven for thinking that we live in a world of negativity and disasters, if you regularly consume media then you do live in that world. Our perception is our reality or another way to put it is ‘as within so without’. What we think and feel about the world tends to be what our attention is brought to. If we are looking for negativity then we will find it and conversely look for positivity and we find it too.
My reality is that there are amazing people doing amazing things in my life and the world. While there may be a global financial crisis I meet people and businesses everyday who are thriving, growing and most importantly loving what they do. I know many people who will have 2010 as their most successful year yet. Did you know that there were more millionaires made per head of population in America during the dust-bowl depression of the 1920′s than at any other time!
My question to you is to ask yourself what is wonderful in your life? Who is wonderful in your life? (right now, draw up a quick list of what is brilliant in your life)
What you will find is the more you bring your awareness to what is great the more you will see these things in the world and other people. When you do this you will feel more positive and by feeling positive you will be infectious and others will reflect your positivity.
If you want to prove this theory it’s simple – just do one thing for one day;
Smile at everyone you meet today!
You will be amazed at how good you feel and the impact it makes on those around you. This will also bring you into a state of connection; one of the 5 states of success.
