I have found myself listing to a lot of audio book that deal with making your live better. I know that in the past self help books have gotten a bad wrap. Much of the time, this has been a fair and honest assessment. I was the first one to call “woo” and blow these styles of books. I have always thought that they were written for folks that had nothing better to do then try to find the quick fix and easy way to do life. I think that this was te reason that I have fought for so long and hard to not give this genre very minimal, if any, space on both my actual and virtual shelves. That had changed.
Now hold one a moment and hear me out. I can almost hear the judgment and sarcasm that many of you all the way over here and through the distance of time and space. Let me explain.
The self-help book of the past had far to much of the idea that if you just say, “I am wealthy”, “I am happy,” “I am successful,” enough these things will just happen. I am not seeing that as much today. Yes there are affirmation and using the power of positive thought, but they do not stop there. Unlike the books of old, todays self-help books go one step further. You do your affirmation like in the past, BUT then you get your ass to work!
I have found that the idea of “manifesting the change you want” do be a very heave theme these day. I think the best way I can sum this up is as follows. If you send out positive energy you get positive energy. Some people are more prone to this then others. I am one of those people. Here is a example. Has anyone notice that you can be having a good day then you run into Ms. Debbie Downer? After only a few minuets in their presence you are in a bad mood. How did this happen? Not 10 mins ago things were going well. Now you feel like life is shit. Energy.
In that same vain, it is safe to assume to you have heard the saying, “laughter is contagious.” I know that most people have had this happen. Your day is not going great and then your friend says something that was funny-ish to your but a real knee slapper to them. They are laughing so hard that you think that they are going to pass out from lack of breath. Before you know it, you are laughing too and almost as hard. Then you realize that your mood has improved and now are doing better. Their positive energy has rubbed off on you. Today most self-help writers are calling these actions manifestation.
After seeing these examples and ideas in far too many places to count I thought I would give it a try for the next month. For the next 30 days I am going to attempt to practices manifesting positive changes in my life. First I will speak good things into my life then be open to the work that is needed to make them happen. After a month I will recap how it went and decided if I am going to keep doing it.
How about joining me on this experiment and journey? See if these next 30 day are the best of your life or not. Go to the Facebook groupand let everyone know how it is going and if you are going to keep going or stop.
Well that is enough for now. I hope you are well and know how much I lover every one of you!
Be Well, Be Good, and ALWAYS Be Kind!
