Are you responsible for your own actions?

Here’s the big misconception: Getting annoyed with yourself or worrying about actions or results you want won’t bring them any closer to you…

It’s simple, the same thinking that created the issue is not the same thinking that resolves the issue. The actions that create a negative result, are not the same actions that create positive results.

So what do you do to change that?

The short answer

Change your mind and you change your world. A shift in perception creates a whole new set of circumstances that bring a whole new set of results.

Thoughts are magnetic

Imagine your thoughts are magnets.

As you know from back in school, each magnet has a north and south pole. You also know opposites attract…

If a negative thought is the north pole, and a positive thought is the south pole, no amount of pushing will get two north poles to attach to each other!

You have to flip your thinking so a north and south pole are aligned and they’ll magically, ok magnetically connect with each other. Easy with little effort required because the magnetic forces do all the work for you.

Attraction and your actions

What you think, your thoughts are like ripples flowing from you into the world. Those thoughts bundle together and create the actions you take.

You are responsible for your thoughts and actions. To change the world around you change your thoughts. Your thoughts, in turn, will change your actions.

Answers to change your world

Think about what you really want. Not what you think others want you to want. It’s all about you!

Now visualise what you want as achieved. Get into the picture (you’ve done this before, so I know you can!).

Are your current thoughts and actions helping you achieve that vision… ask yourself the following to find out for sure:

  • What thoughts are you putting out to the world right now?
  • Are those thoughts what you want floating about?
  • Are they adding to your vision?
  • Will those thoughts bundle together into the actions you want?
  • How can you act or change your actions to those you do want?
  • Which thoughts and actions will show you the results you really want?
  • How will you know those have worked?

If your thoughts and actions are not what you want them to be, flip them around to what you do want to see, feel and be.

Getting your vibrational attraction magnet in order

Keep your focus on what you do want. Your actions will follow suit.

Think of your thoughts and actions as vibrations pulsing out of your mind around you. Now think of the results you want in your life as being like magnetic forces, vibrating waiting to match up.

The more you focus your actions on what you do want, the more opportunities will come your way. Baby steps daily bring huge rewards and results.

In case of emergency…

If people around you don’t understand, clarify. If you falter or fall, remember that is normal.

Give yourself a pat on the back for what you have done. Then, remembering how good it’s felt up to that point, get back to the actions you do want.

Reaffirm your initial visualisation. Keep thinking about what you do want. Keep going and don’t give up five minutes before the finish line.

Are you taking responsibility for your own actions now?

Yes, you are!
