HABBITS ARE GOOD
Good day and I hope you are having a great week. I am really excited about this post. I want to talk to you about Habits. New experiences are what humans crave. Desires arise in us because we have a different vibration between what we have now and what we want to have, i.e. something new, or different. Even the most even keeled personality types, enjoy new experiences most of the times. For the purpose of this post, I am not talking about new experiences that bring discontent or hardship. I am talking about those really good experiences.
The thing is though, that new experiences are NOT WHERE WE SHINE. Think about it. What is a new experience? From the time we are babies we crave for those new experiences. Perhaps the first one being walking. The new experience of walking is not perfect by any means. We get up, hesitantly, and wobble, and fall. We get up again and try to hold on to something gaining a sense of balance, and then let go and fall. We get up again and gain… and that is where perfection happens. It is in doing the same thing over and over until it becomes a habit. Until it becomes something we can do without conscious thought. Until we can do it without thinking. Practice makes a habit, and a habit allows us the freedom to do things without having to concentrate on them.
The Law of Attraction (LOA) is also something we can build a habit around. It is in my humble opinion one of the most important habits we can create. Everything we are good at, is because it has become a habit. By the same token many of our resistances, and difficulties revolve around bad habits we have developed. Good news is we can change them by building new habits. In this post I want to bring to your attention that there is a reason you are here reading this post, and viewing this blog at this time. There is something that has vibrated with you to be here. You are looking for something to take control of your life, perhaps your future, but as Eckhart Tolle states in his book The Power of Now, it is only in the now that we can make anything happen.
The notoriety of The Law of Attraction (LOA), is relatively recent. The Universal law behind it though is eternal and is referenced in many spiritual texts throughout the history going back at the very least over 2000 years. If you learned and practiced the LOA because it was something new, and have not make the effort to make it a habit, I want to ask you why not? Is it not worth the time and effort to take complete control of your life? Is it not worth the time and effort to manifest your reality the way you want it, rather than going about hoping things will turn out good so you can feel good, and hope that the challenges will not be too bad, so your not so good feelings are short lived?
I remind you that everything we are good at is the result of building habits we want. You can build any habit that you desire, and I want to challenge you to build the habit of using the LOA on a daily bases. What this will do for you is to allow you to practice when things are ideal, and get good at it, so when challenges arise you don’t have think about it, and do the right thing so you can come out on the other side the way you intend to and not by default. Building a habit involves doing the same set of routines every single day for a period of at least 27 days according to many experts. Since I think this skill set is so important, and so should you, I tend to say do this for 90 days.
I can feel some of you cringing in your seats as you read this. 90 days? Dude, A.J. really? So here you go. I will make it real for you. If I was to postdate a $1,000,000 check for 90 days from now, and tell you to write out specific goals for your health, wealth, happiness, and peace of mind, and read them out loud to yourself twice daily, would you complain about doing it for 90 days? I think not. If I told you that you can have that check if you set aside 10-15 minutes in your schedule every day to find a quiet place where you would not be disturbed and visualize with all 5 of your senses things as you would want them to be, would you do it? If I told you that check would be here for you even if you miss a day, but you would have to start all over and do it for 90 days in a row, would you be excited? It is all true. Dude, it is worth far more than a measly $1,000,000 in your lifetime to build this habit no matter how old you are now. This decision to work on building this habit may possibly be the most important decision you make today.
Don’t just read this and say “cool, I’ll do that later”. Or worse just read it, or book mark it, or pass it along or any other action but making a decision to do the actions that will build the habit. The secret to this thing is that no one can build a habit for you. YOU HAVE THE TOTAL POWER TO DO IT OR NOT. If you don’t, what are you going to feel like in 90 days? But I don’t want to bring you another guilt trip, because you know what, it is NEVER TOO LATE, to build this habit. The check does not go away. It is here for you to take. 90 days. Or the rest of your life. Take this from the Source that created you in his image and gave you the unique ability to have freedom to think. No other specie on this planet does this. They all have been programmed to be driven by instinct. We humans, have this amazing gift to think ourselves into whatever we want. Yet most of us give up after a few attempts. What the %#$#@#^? The world is there for your taking. You will not hurt anyone. There is more than enough for all of us here. You just have to build the habit. Can you do it? Yes you can. I believe in you and can’t wait to hear about your success. If you want to have some basic instructions take a look at the link on the lower right hand corner of the page entitled "SOME BASIC POSTS FOR NEW READERS".
As always I hope you share this with anyone who can benefit from it. Leave me comments, questions, or thoughts and strategies on how you are going to build this habit on my Facebook page and / or Twitter feed. What are you going to do? Actions build habits. Thoughts should lead to actions. Actions should be done over and over for 90 days. After that you will not want to stop. I hope you will take me up on this challenge. Till next week, to your success.
