What We Think Is What We Get!
No one makes you feel the way you feel without your consent!
A universal law states the, “… magnetic power of the universe draws similar energies together. It manifests through the power of creation ... This law attracts thoughts, ideas, people, situations and circumstance.” [underlines added]
What we think is what we get is the Law of Attraction in action. It translates into what we think about most of the time is exactly what we can expect most of the time.
In the late Stephen R. Covey excellent book, ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’, he wrote “… building strong relationships not only require a character foundation of inner security … and personal moral authority, but also involves stretching ourselves in developing vital inter-personal skills …”
The principle of inner security and moral authority begins with building a core-value of not consenting to someone else owning the way you feel!
Core-values fuel the way we feel, which in turn energise every thoughtful action or un-thoughtful reaction we take.
Original core-values are established in childhood, when we are totally dependent on others for our every need. Core-values can be favourable or antagonistic, engendering happy memories or otherwise and can help or hold-back life’s progression.
Antagonistic core-values remain within us unless and until we choose to change them for favourable ones. You choose to replace unhelpful values with helpful one’s ~ or you don’t!
There are many accounts of people who overcame discouraging and even life-threatening circumstances by refusing to give their consent to their antagonists. And, if you haven’t read Viktor E. Frankl’s good book, ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’, I commend it to you.
No-one makes me feel the way I feel without my consent!
So, the next time you feel like responding to someone with antagonism ~ stop! And, ask yourself what that person is really trying to convey to you. Then ask yourself if feeling antagonistic or favourable is going to evoke a better outcome. And, should you then disagree with what is being said ~ do so agreeably.
No-one makes you feel the way you feel without your consent!
In Rhonda Byrne's good book “The Magic” she writes, “When there is some kind of sickness or condition in your body, it is understandable that you may have negative feelings about it…but having negative feelings about sickness does not restore health. In fact, it has the opposite effect…”.
