A lot of people believe that the Law of Attraction is all about pretending that the grass is green, when it is really yellow. And, if we pretend long enough, it will become green. For some reason, many think that affirmations is all there is to the Law of Attraction. If we repeat for a long enough time “Grass is green, grass is green, grass is green” it will magically become green.
I personally don’t like pretending. That is why I don’t like affirmations and never do them.
How do you feel when someone lies to you? You don’t like it, right? No one likes it. So saying that you are physically fit if you are 40 lbs. overweight is probably not going to help you. The first thing your mind thinks when you are saying your “I am physically fit” affirmation is: “Yeah, right. I don’t think so.”
I believe that in order to change the situation you should first of all see it as it is. If you are overweight, say: “Yes, I am overweight, I have this problem.” Second of all, you should accept the situation as it is. Own it, take full responsibility for it. Don’t resist. What you resist, persists.
And then, after you have done that, see the situation better than it is. See how you can make it better. Then start asking yourself empowering questions. How can I be physically fit? Questions are so much better than just simply stating your affirmations. When you are asking questions, your mind won’t go “Yeah.. right.” It will start looking for answers to your questions.
You have to change your focus. That is exactly what you are trying to do when doing affirmations, right? The only difference when you are asking questions is that it feels good to ask questions. You don’t feel like you are lying to yourself and your mind loves questions. This is your mind’s primary purpose–looking for answers.
But the end result is still the same as with affirmations–switching your focus and focusing on a better situation. You are just going to get your desired end result with much less resistance from your mind and much quicker.
There are a lot of successful people who have no idea about the Law of Attraction, affirmations, visualizations etc. The only thing that distinguishes them from unsuccessful people is that they ask themselves “How can I” questions. They see the situation as it is and then ask: “How can I make it better, how can I get the result I want.”
That is it. You don’t have to know any other techniques to make your dreams come true. You can make all of them come true by constantly asking yourself “how can I” questions. If you are really good at it, that will be enough.
