To me, this means that attitude really has a lot of bearing on our future.
To help my daily attitude, I have made it a habit in my life to listen to a recording of myself spelling out all of my dreams, my life the way I want it, on a daily basis (as recommended by Bob Proctor). I try to do it in the morning, since that's when my mind is most active. One of my dreams is to take my family on a cruise to Hawaii on the Disney Cruise ship. I like to watch the Disney Cruise ship video weekly, to remind myself of that goal and help me visualize. One part of the video that really strikes me is one of the restaurants on the ship. It's called "Animator's Palate." The way it works is that the walls look black and white when you walk in before the meal begins. Throughout the meal, the wall becomes a color wall, little by little. After listening to my dreams this morning, I realized that my life now is like the black and white wall. The things that I'm dealing with in my life seem so urgent, so crucial, but in a year or so, it won't even matter. It's all a facade. My future, my dream life, is like the color wall. It is simply my duty, as a dreamer of the future, to dream, visualize, believe, work, sweat, figure out solutions to problems, enjoy every moment along the journey until that black and white wall becomes a color wall in my life. What really matters most is the long lasting, the things (or people) that I will still care about in 5, 10, 20 years.
Many of you have heard of "The Secret" or "The Law of Attraction" and misunderstand it. The FIRST part of the Law of Attraction is to believe, visualize, and think as if your future is your reality NOW. The SECOND part, after completing the first part, is to work. Belief, thoughts, and visualizations in an of themselves are NOT going to get you to your dreams. But, they do put you on the best frequency so you most effectively know HOW to accomplish what you need to accomplish to get you to your dreams. Think of frequency as a radio station. When you're in between stations, you can't clearly hear the music (or talk, if you listen to talk radio), yet if you're completely on the right station, you hear everything more clearly. When you simply FEEL GOOD, that makes it easier for you to feel inside which is the correct next step to take to reach your goal. Whether you believe it is God, another higher power, the Universe, your true self, or whatever else is guiding you, doesn't matter. What matters most is that you take that guidance, if you want to reach your goals. When you do that, you will be doing the work it takes to get to your dreams.
If any of this makes sense, you have questions, want to share your dreams, or have a comment to make, please make it here or e-mail me. I'd love to help. I offer free 30-minute coaching sessions, if you need them.
