What you think is what you get. Like attracts like. Pretty simple. But getting the results you want takes training the mind to focus on that which we want to create. Not so simple. It takes practice. It takes persistence. It takes work.
Quite frankly, the law of attraction is a skill. Just like any skill, it must be developed. It’s not enough to just want something. You must use the power of your thoughts to attract it.
Once you decide what it is you want in life, you must begin to prepare for it. On every conceivable level…material, physical and spiritual.
Our life is a series of choices. Once choice leads to another which leads to another. Just like one thought leads to another which leads to another. Once we know the direction we want our life to go, set a plan. Turn your thoughts in that direction. Make choices that will lead you down that path. Imagine what it will be like when you achieve your goals. Then, enjoy the journey.
Painting is much the same. Once you decide to paint, you have to decide, at the very least, what colors you wish to use. You clear an area. Lay out your tools. Change your clothes. All material. Then you begin the physical/spiritual. You focus, and you paint. At times you may be dissatisfied with the way your work is going, and you have to step back and begin again. But you begin again. One stroke followed by another. Your thoughts directed toward the outcome. If you stay focused and you keep applying paint, a painting will emerge.
